Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

As Owners who live here five months of the year we pride ourselves in providing all the amenities one could possibly want to make your visit enjoyable, including air conditioning throughout. We have often been told that staying in our condo is like being on a cruise ship, as you are surrounded by water and are able to view the Ocean from both the Lanai and out the Front door.

You will find that you are only steps away from two remarkable beaches where the best South Shore surfing, snorkeling, and sunbathing take place. There is no hassle of parking your car or walking a long distance to the beach. Just stroll down the stairs or take the elevator and you’ll have two beaches to enjoy - one rocky but great for snorkeling and one sandy. Our exceptional Fourth floor views cannot be equaled as you cast your eyes on the majestic mountains and beautiful Hoai Bay. Our top floor, peaceful, 20 foot Lanai offers privacy while watching the sea turtles, whales, and “Locals” throwing their fish nets. You will enjoy the magnificent sunrise and also appreciate the gentle tradewinds throughout the day. Kauai doesn’t get any better. The open floor plan with Hawaiian artwork and native Koa wood accents allow you to enjoy the view from the living room, dining room and kitchen. The living room features tropical décor in a large sitting area with a 43” Smart HDTV with free Netflix and a desk with high-speed wireless internet connection. Our updated, immaculate condo also features a king size bed and one bathroom with an oversized, tiled, glass enclosed shower. Since we do live here five months of the year, our place is meticulously maintained, cared for, and appointed with luxuries to meet your every need. Not a detail has been overlooked. This is not our business, but a paradise we would like to share with you.

Within walking distance is Spouting Horn Park where you can see “blow hole” and bargain shop in the many local run booths. Just before Spouting Horn is the National Tropical Botanical Gardens Visitor Center. This incredibly beautiful garden consists of 252 rich, lush acres of varied plants, palms, and birds, and offers both guided and self-guided tours. Kukui’ula Village, located at the round-about that leads to Kuhio Shores, is within walking distance and is reminiscent of a quaint sugar cane town. Plantation style architecture in a lush tropical setting offers a relaxing time of shopping and dining. Kuhio Shores sits next to the famous Beach House restaurant. It offers spectacular sunsets right on the beach that will linger in your memory long after you return home. For cooking at “home”, be sure to check out the wonderful fish markets, green markets, and fruitstands where you can pick up the Island’s best tropical fish and homegrown fruits and veggies.

In Kauai, every day is a great day. Much of the rainfall is a nightly occurrence and the rain showers that do occur are almost always brief. It is truly beautiful, and a blessing if it rains, and often is followed by glorious rainbows.

We invite you to enjoy our home-away-from-home on the beautiful Island of Kauai. We are confident you will not be disappointed in your choice of our condo, in a one of a kind location. If you need further information or have any questions, feel free to contact our daughter, Jane, who manages our condo. MAHALO

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

404 was the perfect "Home Away From Home" vacation. The condo itself was maintained beautifully and all the amenities needed were present. The view was wonderful as every morning we got the Sun and while I ate breakfast on the Lanai I watched the turtles in the cove below. We were walking distance to the two coves on either side of the location for swimming and snorkling. The big plus was the unit was air conditioned. The team at Kuhio Shores was very responsive to any requests as were the owners. Parking was no problem and its location in proximity to all the sites of the island was perfect. I would highly recommend this unit for anyone vacationing on the "Garden Island". Our only regret ws having to leave but we left very relaxed and appreciative of the hospitality the unit afforded my Wife and I. Tim & Janice Hinson - Mill Creek, WA

Great fourth floor unit that was very private.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I began our vacation staying in this fourth floor unit for a week. The place was very clean and the kitchen well equipped. The unit does have air conditioning which was very helpful during our stay. The fourth floor balcony was very private and provided a great viewing spot for the sea turtles. I mention that this balcony was very private only because we moved to a first floor unit in the same building for our second week and there was a lot of foot traffic in front of that porch. Obviously the higher up you are foot traffic can't happen, but it is something to consider when staying here because of the walking path that goes in front of all first floor units. We did not know that when we booked our second weeks stay. Another advantage of this property was the beach equipment available to use. There were two coolers, one large and one small, two lawn chairs, four beach towels, and two sand mats. These were very useful with our trips to the beach or hiking for the day. A disadvantage if this unit for me was that the bedroom did not face the ocean like our second condo did. We could not hear the water while we slept which was something I had wanted. Being on the fourth floor the unit was warm and we could not sleep with the patio doors open during the night. That might not be the case in other months, but for June it was warm. Both my husband and myself would stay here again. We had an enjoyable stay.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful condo! The first thing you see when you walk in is the amazing ocean front view. Then you see the well appointed design. The furniture is so nice and comfortable! My husband and I enjoyed having our own recliner, lol. The trade winds blow thru so nicely, we hardly had to use the A/C. Seriously, this is the nicest condo we have ever stayed in! Not to mention the cleanest. We really enjoyed watching the flock of wild rose ringed parakeets that flew over every evening. There is excellent snorkeling just steps away at Lawai Beach. We really appreciated the use of beach chairs and boogie board. We purchased 2 noodles to add to the beach gear! We hate to leave, but we can't wait to come back!

Kuhio Shores 404

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Kauai at Kuhio Shores #404. Jane was easy to work with to book the condo. There was a mishap in that she accidentally double-booked our first night. It was remedied by her paying for our first night in another condo at Kuhio Shores, so we just had to move condos the second day. Condo 404 had a great view of the cove. We thought being able to see the road would ruin our view, but we couldn't hear any cars over the waves except for the occasional loud truck and was not a problem. We watched people fish and saw turtles in the cove. We took the beach chairs down to the lanai to watch surfers and the sunset at the beach on the opposite side of the condo (next to Beach House restaurant). The Air Conditioning was great to have on in the bedroom at night and in the main room in the mornings when the sun was shining in! The condo was as pictured - clean and comfortable and a perfect size for 2 people. We didn't cook any meals there, but it looked well stocked. They had beach chairs, beach mats, and beach towels for our use which worked out great. The condo is a great location - able to walk up to the Shops at Kukui'ula, which had several nice restaurants, shops and Longs Drugs for any incidentals. It was also close by to several nice beaches on the South Shore and not too far from the airport. The only thing we didn't like was that the balcony faced east, so the sun shined in in the mornings and it was a little too sunny and warm to sit out on the balcony before 11am, so we couldn't enjoy our breakfast out there. After 11am, the balcony was wonderful!

We would definitely stay here again!

A Gem in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a most wonderful and relaxing week at Kuhio Shores 404. This unit is a true gem - beautifully decorated, comfortably home-like, sparkling clean and so close to all the great south shore activities, shopping and restaurants. The view of the bay from the unit is really beautiful and can be seen from the living room, dining room, kitchen and, of course, the lanai. We spent so many enjoyable hours sitting out on that lanai watching all the activity in the water - turtles, snorkelers, and local fishermen (never knew there were so many different ways to catch fish!). There are 2 separate seating areas on the lanai - a high top set, where we enjoyed wine and pupus in the late afternoon, and a regular height table, where we ate most of our at-home meals. The walkway outside the front door also provides a great view. We watched the sunset from there most evenings and then, after sunset, the arrival of the thousands (literally) of bright green long-tailed parakeets. They swoop in every night from someplace west of Lawai and roost in the trees along the coast for the night. An absolutely amazing sight!! As to the unit itself, the owners have thought of everything to make their guests' stays completely enjoyable, with great attention to detail. There were so many things that we truly appreciated - a fully equipped kitchen including a drawer containing a variety of spices/herbs, a bench in the entry hall where you can sit to conveniently remove/put on shoes (Hawaiian custom is to remove shoes before entering a home); a screen door design that allows air to flow through, while still maintaining total privacy; a very comfortable bed that, along with the sound of the waves, insured deep, restful sleep; "his" and "her" recliners in the living room, a shelf unit that contained novels by various popular authors; a copy of "Kauai Revealed" for reference; a selection of CD's, including several Hawaiian music ones that we listened to numerous times, etc. There are also two air conditioning units ( one in the living room, one in the bedroom) which will be a big plus for those times when the weather gets hot. We didn't need them during our stay though, because the constant breeze was more than enough to keep us cool and comfortable. There were just so many special touches and thoughtful additions that contributed to our wonderful week in 404. We highly recommend this beautiful condo and hope to return one day!!

Owner's Response: Carol, I was extremely disappointed to hear you were not happy with our condo. Since you arrived late in the evening, I truly wish you would have stayed the night to see our stunning view and numerous amenities. After speaking with you, I understand the condo was warm upon your arrival. This can be true when the condo windows have been closed for some time but is usually not a problem as we enjoy such wonderful trade winds. Now, for unusually warm days, we have AIR CONDITIONING throughout the entire condo. Those rare times when the trade winds lag will not be a problem. We do have two beaches, one on either side of the building, just as shown in the photos. We welcome you back to enjoy our island paradise!
