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 Poipu

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

We are enjoying your condo in Kauai. Great location. Nice accommodations. Surf pounding all day long. Life doesn't get much better. The stress is melting away. Take care. (e-mail to owner from Kauai.)

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!

The perfect place to stay in Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo!! The location is convenient, and the views are amazing! Both sunrises and sunsets are beautiful from the back patio. The sound of the waves just makes it so relaxing. Everything was perfect. We adventured during the day and loved coming back to the condo every evening and just relaxing on the patio or inside with all the windows open. We hope to come back to stay again!!

Great location, beautiful views, quiet adult setting.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautifully furnished and very clean. The owners make the rental and check in very easy. The view is amazing and the location near shops and restaurants is great. Lots of beaches and snorkeling within a short drive and only 20 minutes to Lihue and the airport. Will definitely be back.

Plush and updated unit with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

The waves are right outside your sliding glass door. We could see turtles from the lanai and because it is a corner unit we could take in sunrise from inside and then sit on lanai for sunset views. Well equipped kitchen for those that like to cook. Lots of toiletries in bathroom and supplies in kitchen. Comfortable furniture too for those days you want to stay in and relax to ocean sounds . We looked at many units and this one is stunning. Good rapport with owner also!!!!

The best location! All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. You cannot ask for a better location. I sat and watched the sunrise and sunset every day we were there and I didn't have to go more than 5 feet. The sound of the ocean 24 x 7 is so relaxing. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. There are 3 laundry rooms and 2 change machines; however, the change machines never had change. It's 2.00 load to wash and $2 for 60 minutes of dryer time on the first floor - quarters only. So bring quarters or go across the street to the Prince Kuhio (I think that's the name) and get change - their machines always had change. Because of the "perfect" location, it's quite popular at sunrise and sunset. People come from across the street and down the street but they were all friendly and respectful. Only once did I wake to find strangers sitting on our patio but they moved when asked. The condo is extremely clean and has all the comforts of home. The BBQ's located in the far end of the parking lot always had propane and utensils. Daily, we saw turtles and crabs. Poipu is a great location - sunny, near great restaurants, etc. You can dine out or cook. Cooking in this location wasn't like cooking at home!!! Having a/c was a plus although we didn't use it often as we opened the windows every day and got a quite a nice breeze through the entire condo. I will be coming back. Joy was always extremely responsive and very helpful with any questions.

Awesome corner of the world

  • 5 of 5

Watch the sunrise out one set of windows and set out the other. It was lovely weather and we used open windows for cooling most of the morning and again in the evening. We only ran the air conditioner for a couple hours in the afternoon when we were not out doing something, but it was very nice to have it. The owners are very nice and helpful and made the booking process smooth for us. I hope to return soon.
