About Walt and Joy

We fell in love with Hawaii on our honeymoon over 50 years ago, but only discovered the unique beauty, drama and excitement of the Island of Kauai about 15 years ago, when our daughter Debi Joy moved there with her young family, and began a real estate sales career there. She alerted us to best locations and the best properties on the island, and we finally settled on Kuhio Shores in Poipu Beach for purchase. We all liked 'Aloha Kai', our unit 109, so much that we partnered with Debi Joy in ownership. We (Joy and Walt) have been real estate brokers in California for almost 30 years, and have bought and sold many properties, but none of them has been so simply exotic as 'Aloha Kai'.

Walt and Joy purchased this condo in 2005

Why Walt and Joy chose South Shore

Aloha Kai is as close to the water as any building on Kauai. The seawall out front is 20 feet away across the lawn. On the bayside the lawn is only 12 feet to the bay rocks and the water. So you get water views from every room, and a sense of being surrounded by the sea. The unit itself is highly upgraded with a newly installed marble floor throughout, european style cabinetry, marble shower, new kingsize bed, and all conveniences. The snorkeling bay is right beside you, and around the other side of the building is a white sand beach for swimming and sunning, and out front is the famous PK's surf break. A new shopping center just opened within easy walking distance, and the Beachhouse Restaurant is right next door featuring spectacular sunsets from the bar. Poipu is known as the 'sunny side' of Kauai. So what more could you ask?

What makes this condo unique

One of the few oceanfront air conditioned units at Poipu Beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Kauai is heaven; Kuhio Shores 109 is better than heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We've always enjoyed our stays at Kuhio Shores, but this year decided to treat ourselves & book unit 109. The corner unit is next to turtle cove, with views to the east and west, trade winds keeping us cool. A step outside the door and we could watch the surfers to the north of us.

The best part was listening to the crashing ocean from the bedroom. Lulled to sleep at night & greeted in the morning by the waves was an incredible experience.

The condo is well-stocked with comfortable furniture & complete kitchen. Unfortunately, I was sick for a few days of our stay, but was able to lie on the couch & enjoy the ocean 20 feet away. The owners (Walter & Joy) communicate quickly and have a great local person (Evie) to call with any questions or issues. We didn't have any problems, but it was great to have someone local just in case.

I almost hate to write this review; 109 is very popular, now even more folks will want to stay there!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was the perfect place to spend a relaxing week. My husband and I were lucky enough to spend one week in a fourth floor unit and then moved down to this unit for five nights. The condo was very clean and had the best view in the entire building. I chose this unit because of the location and the opportunity to view sea turtles every day. The turtles did not disappoint! They feed right outside every day. It was amazing. You could hear the ocean while you sleep it was so close. The kitchen was well stocked and the unit was all updated. My husbands only complaint was that there is a walking path right outside of this unit. Many people like to stand at the point, which is right in front of the room, and watch the turtles too. The locals also use this path to get to their surfing spot. Unlike other vacationers, the surfers just quickly pass by on their way to and from surfing. No big deal really. I will admit the other foot traffic did get a bit annoying. In fact one morning we woke up to some stranger sitting in the patio chairs. I hate to write this comment in my review as the owners were excellent to deal with and the place was beautiful, but I wish we had known about this before hand. I can honestly say that although that happens I would definitely stay there again. One other noticeable comparison of both units we stayed in was the beach equipment available to use. Unlike the first unit we rented this unit really did not have very much to use. There was one lawn chair and a styrofoam cooler that leaked so badly we couldn't use it. There were two beach towels provided. Again, this made going to the beach or needing to keep drinks cool for a day trip a little more challenging, but not enough to not return. There were two highback foldable chairs that were very useful for sitting on the lawn in front of the unit. In my opinion out of both units we stayed in, unit 109 was my personal favorite.

Beautiful place, great location, had everything we needed and more.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. Sat out every night and watched surfers. Walked 100 feet to see full sunsets. Saw dolphins in the ocean. Minutes to beaches and plenty to do and see. We were very pleased with everything. Highly recommend.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

Winding up our 10 days here. The condo is lovely, nice comfortable furniture, incredible views and kitchen supplied with everything we needed. Spoke with property manager she was most helpful with one the question we had. Could not ask for a better place. Water was too rough for us to snorkel this visit so really enjoyed watching all the young surfers out front. Looking forward to coming back. Barb and Bill

Simply Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is amazing! We loved everything about it, but especially the views! There is an ocean view outside of every single window and it is literally just steps from the water. The bay is great for snorkeling- lots of fish and even turtles! The unit was well stocked and the owners were wonderful to work with. We also loved how close we were to shops and restaurants, and other things to do and see. It really is the perfect landing spot for anyone wanting to spend time on Kauai. We definitely hope to return someday!
