About Dale and Paula Bernard

After vacationing in Kauai for many years we decided to get our own little piece of paradise and share it with guests! We love Kauai and all that it has to offer for the perfect tropical vacation!

Dale and Paula Bernard purchased this condo in 2015

Why Dale and Paula Bernard chose Poipu

We like Kuhio Shores because of the full East Ocean View enjoyed from inside the condo and while relaxing on the over-sized Lanai. In addition, the complex's location on the sunny southern side of Kauai, right near all the best beaches, make it the perfect choice. We strive to consistently exceed our guests expectations, working to achieve the same level of hospitality that we ourselves expect every time we vacation. When you enjoy your stay please tell your friends and visit us again.

What makes this condo unique

Staying at our condo comes with the added benefit of discounted car rental.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had the pleasure of staying in the beautiful condo for a week. Listening to the sound of the waves day and night really resets your buttons. The condo is very modern. Clean and well maintained. Has all of the amenities of home. I actually extended my stay for a few days because I couldn't get enough of the island and waking up having my morning coffee on the patio, looking at the most precious view. Dale and Paula are very easy to work with and very attentive. I highly recommend this sanctuary. I will definitely be returning. :)

  • 5 of 5

We loved the immaculate condo and all the things to do in Poipu. Check in and check out is easy. We found everything we needed inside, from beach chairs to flippers. The bed and décor were comfortable. We used the kitchen and deck/patio for breakfasts every day. We went to nearby Allerton/McBride National Tropical Botanical Gardens twice and learned about the secret beach just past the Spouted Horn. No restaurants within walking distance (except the special occasion Beach House).

Very Comfortable, Great Location, Great View

  • 4 of 5

This Kuhio Shores condo is very comfortable for a couple or small family. The eastern exposure provides bright sunshine to sit out on the lanai enjoying morning coffee. The grounds of the complex are meticulously maintained and include an outdoor shower and foot washing stations to clean shoes and snorkel gear outside. The unit is near the end of the building, near the road, but the traffic is slow in this area so it wasn't a problem. We heard more of the sound of the surf as a pleasant background.

The kitchen is adequate, with a small stove, but fine for light meals. They provide a good variety of kitchen utensils, dishes and beach equipment. They provide a Keurig machine but we drink enough coffee that we would have preferred a full size coffee maker (over the 6-cup drip machine). With that beautiful morning view, it's easy to sip through a lot of coffee before getting out for the day. The bathroom has a very large shower and the bedroom has a huge closet and plenty of dresser storage. The wide sliding lanai door and bedroom windows provided cool cross breezes so we didn't even turn on the air conditioning until near the end of our stay when it became more humid. We reported a problem with the air conditioning that the owner helped us to resolve with resetting at the electrical panel. Unfortunately it had to be done several times within 24 hrs which is probably something that needs attention. We appreciate that the owners are quick to respond to inquiries.

The location was convenient to the sights and attractions of south and west Kauai. We stayed from Feb 18-24, 2018 so we saw several whales, in the distance, from the lanai but don't expect the same whale show as you might find on Maui. At sunset, just walk around corner of the building on the lawn to enjoy a spectacular view. Next to the Beachhouse Restaurant is Lawai Beach which is one of the sites recommended at Boss Frog for snorkeling. Very convenient to just walk over with your gear - check the gear available in the unit before renting. Watch for the wild green parakeets that flock in from the mountains at sunset to roost in the palm trees along the shore and return to the mountains near sunrise. Another great natural feature of this area.

I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a good value for the location and view.

Convenient and relaxing describe this condo. The unit is beautiful and has an awesome view of the ocean. Everything you need is just a short drive and one of best restaurants on the island is right next door. I'm sad to be leaving.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

Nice, well equipped condo, fun to watch waves and the occasional turtle from the lanai. Our favorite beach was Poipu beach for easy snorkeling. Go early as it gets busy there. Be sure and hike the cliffs next to shipwreck beach all the way to Gilliam beach

Great location. Amazing views. Clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights at this amazing condo. Awesome views of the ocean from the living room and balcony. The location is perfect, only minutes away from some of the best beaches in Kauai. We went to Poipu beach multiple times. One of the best places to snorkel on the island.

The condo itself was well appointed. The AC was great and kept us cool on the hot days. The bed was comfortable. It had everything that we needed. It was an extremely easy check in process. Plenty of parking and within walking distance of several restaurants.

Good news, a Ruth's Chris steakhouse opened the week before we got there and is a 2 minutes drive.

Kauai is our new favorite island and we plan on staying at this condo next time we come out.
