The Best Of Kauai In Sunny Poipu
Enjoy the best of Kauai and have extra money for island excursions. This fully equipped ocean-view studio condo at Poipu Beach has stunning vistas of the bay, peaceful Prince Kuhio Park, and mountains framed by rainbows and swaying palms.
Only steps to the beach
Prince Kuhio Resort, awarded a prestigious certificate of excellence for its outstanding qualities, is a small and quaint resort about 20 yards from the beach. Some of the best swimming, snorkeling, and surfing on Kauai are right out in front at Prince Kuhio Beach and Lawai Beach. Hawaiian sea turtles and tropical fish swim close to shore in a protected cove.
The sound of the ocean
You will enjoy the sound of the ocean, the birds singing, the tropical breeze, and the amazing sunrise every day from your lanai, which has a bar-height table and chairs so that you can fully enjoy this extraordinary setting. On the other side of the resort there is a koi pond, waterfalls, and a large swimming pool surrounded by a lush, exotic garden with a picnic and barbecue area.
Located on the second floor, the condo is tastefully decorated with island-style furnishings and a comfortable king bed. Though the unit has no air conditioning, cooling tradewinds often blow through tall windows and it is very comfortable for most of the year. Part of the summer and into fall can be a bit warm for some, though that has been enjoyed by those who can appreciate the balmy tropical ambience of Hawaii. The kitchen is fully equipped with lots of extras. Beach towels and beach chairs are provided. All you will need are your swimsuit and flip flops!
Laundry facilities are also available on site and ample parking is available at the resort. The owner/manager lives on-island so assistance is always readily available.

About Jane Esaki
Aloha, I was born and raised on Kauai and currently live near verdant mountains around 50 minutes away from gorgeous sunny Poipu where this condo is located. I chose this charming ocean-view condo as my home-away-from-home because its location is blessed with nearly year-round sunny skies and excellent beaches. The unit's compact size and convenient location are also practical and perfect for an independent, carefree lifestyle. In my spare time, I love hiking, biking, stand-up paddling and snorkeling in Kauai's wonderland. You will too! Mahalo for staying at Prince Kuhio Studio 231! Jane

Perfect home base for exploring Kauai
This condo unit was perfect for the two of us. Everything we needed was right at hand. We spent every one of our 11 days exploring Kauai and coming back to this unit each evening was a pleasure. The grounds were fabulous, the pool was fabulous and the location was fabulous. Each morning i took my coffee and visited the Kuhio Koi to say good morning followed by a short walk around the Prince Kuhio park and it was simply wonderful. Did I mention the location? It is perfect. Lawai beach across the street is fabulous for snorkeling and lounging. Spouting Horn is so much fun to visit, the flea market has many charms and things to take home for gifts. The NTBG is well worth a visit, and connecting to Kuhio Hwy is easy peasy for exploring the rest of Kauai. We were grateful for our every moment in paradise and we will be back. The noises of the night never bothered us. We are used to roosters so even that was just not an issue at all. High winds made for a lot of wind noise in the night mixed with the swells of PK's beach, but again, we did not find this a negative at all. We live in a very noisy place so in comparison this was peaceful. Now and again in the evening you can hear the traffic, but unless you are looking for complete peace and quiet and solitude, I doubt it would bother most city folk. Parking we found was an amusing challenge, but again nothing that those used to even a small city would find difficult. The location more than made up for the couple of times we had to park on the street for a while then move the car in to the lot(s) in the evening. I have no negative comments at all. The unit was perfect for our needs and as mentioned we are truly grateful we were lucky enough to enjoy our time in paradise with this unit as our home base. Mahalo Nui Loa and Aloha !!
Great quaint place close to beach
We had a great stay at this place. It is small and quaint but views of the ocean from the lanai make up for it! Grounds and pool are very clean. Kitchen is well equipped. Bed is comfortable. Thank you!
We truly enjoyed our stay at Prince Kuhio. There is everything you need in the condo and that is so helpful. Also, you are next to the Poipu beach and a shopping center. I highly recommend it.

Enjoyed our stay at Prince Kuhio resort. Condo was clean with a very well equipped kitchen. Nice pool and gardens.
