About the property

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. Cooling trade winds blow through wall-to-wall windows. 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


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 Esaki purchased this studio in 2014

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wow, this is an amazing condo! The location is ideal. It backs up to a park and has beautiful ocean views from the balcony. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony every morning enjoying breakfast and watching the whales out in the ocean. Some of the best snorkeling on the island was just across the street (we even saw a sea turtle!). The Beach House lawn, across the street, was the best place to watch the sun set over the ocean too! The condo was clean and fully stocked. The owner thought of everything - Kitchen Aid mixer, wine glasses & corkscrew, blender, coffee bean grinder, extra hooks in bathroom for beach towels & swimsuits, extra towel rack, beach chairs, a king sized bed, cooler, even a garlic press! We could not have asked for anything more. I highly recommend this perfect studio condo for your Kauai vacation!

This is our 5th stay in this unit, always clean and we love all cooking utensils, as we eat in most of our stay. We'll be back next year!

Great Location and perfect hotel room type stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I planned an excursion-heavy trip to Kauai. This condo was in the perfect location for all of our activities. It felt just like a hotel room with a beautiful ocean/beach view. The owners are so sweet and left us notes about how to access the wifi and included some coffee and goodies upon our arrival. We were always comfortable and have no complaints!

Great location and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The bed was comfortable and room/complex had everything we needed.

Easy access to South Shore sights. Our favorite snorkeling was just across the street, also a great place to watch the sunset. Would recommend this to any couple traveling to the South Shore!

Best condo Ever

  • 5 of 5

Jane's condo was amazing. Perfect location, easy to find and had everything we needed. Jane was so accommodating and the snorkeling across the street was the best we experienced. We swam with turtles and saw amazing fish. The area was very quiet and clean, people were friendly and I loved being able to see the ocean and the nature, including the wild roosters, from my lanai. Thanks for allowing us to share this amazing place.
