1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Condo with Ocean Views, 100 feet to the water!
Ocean views, the rustle of palm trees, the beach 100 steps away, and the sound of waves lulling you to sleep. We welcome you to Island Style Living on Kauai!
Our newly purchased one bedroom, one bath ocean view condo has been recently gutted and completely remodeled. Beautiful natural cherry cabinets, slab granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, new electrical and light fixtures, paint, flooring, and window coverings. Next we furnished our condo with quality teak and rattan furniture, a comfortable king size bed, soft linens, a 50” flatscreen HDTV, SMART BluRay DVD player, Wifi Internet, along with a library of DVD movies and a book library filled with many local, historical, and Kauai guide books and maps. Gorgeous ocean views are amplified by a large mirror on one living room wall, inviting additional views of the ocean. And my creative husband made a driftwood lamp for our living room after I couldn’t find one that I liked. The kitchen is fully equipped to cook, bake, or bbq, with everything imaginable including spices, paper products, dish soap, sponges, plastic wrap, and foil. Everything to keep your eating costs down. And we didn’t forget your activities so there are beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel equipment, and a small cooler. Our beautiful remodel was completed Nov 2014.
Wake up in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the waves in Hoai Bay only 100 feet away. Most mornings you can watch fishermen shore cast their nets hawaii-style into the ocean. Walk 2 minutes across the street to Lawai Beach for Poipu's best snorkeling (10 ft of clear water, tropical fish, turtles, and an occasional Monk Seal) and surfing (Pk's & Center's). All along Poipu's sunny shoreline is turtle country. Or take advantage of Prince Kuhio Resort's lush gardens and newly remodeled pool. Next door is Prince Kuhio Park. Full of history. Explore this park with its sacred Heiau (ancient hawaiian place of worship), monument to Prince Kuhio (last royal heir to the throne), and an ancient stone fish pond.
Prefer to take a walk? Walk down Lawai Road, past multi million dollar homes to the small boat harbor and on to Spouting Horn. Or take a short 15 minute walk to Kukui'ula Shopping Center with it's upscale shops, art galleries, fresh island restaurants, natural grocery store/deli, and Wednesday’s Farmer’s Market featuring local produce, baked goods, flowers, and many Hawaii made products. All while musicians play hawaiian music and sellers hand out samples!
Nearby attractions include Spouting Horn (a natural ocean geyser), gorgeous Allerton Gardens (with Jurassic Park trees) or McBryde Gardens (National Tropical Botanical Gardens), historic Koloa Town, many golf courses, hike Poipu Sandstone Shoreline Trail (look for whales and dolphins), take a horseback tour, or walk 100 feet to Hoai Bay for great diving and snorkeling. Even more island activities, adventures, and attractions are an easy drive away. At the end of your day, walk across the street for dinner at the award-winning Beach House restaurant and a sunset view you won't forget. Or stop by one of the local island markets and prepare your meals in our fully equipped kitchen. Prince Kuhio Resort's outdoor gas grills and dining area are also available for your use.
Whether you spend your days shopping, snorkeling at Lawai Beach, touring and exploring, or you venture further across the island to visit Hanalei, hike the Kalalau Trail, take an ATV tour, kayak the Wailua River, swim in a waterfall, hike along Waimea Canyon, go coffee tasting, or take an exciting helicopter tour of the island, you'll love coming home to relax at our beautiful condo. And don't forget to grab a favorite beverage and your camera, walk across the street to the lawns at the Beach House Restaurant and watch fabulous ever changing sunsets.
My husband and I have been happily spending time at Prince Kuhio for many years. We are an original owner of a studio purchased in 1977. When the opportunity arouse to purchase Prince Kuhio 201, an ocean view condo, we couldn’t stop ourselves! Kauai has always tugged at our hearts. We fell in love here and later married at the Fern Grotto when you could still walk inside it! We currently enjoy Kauai intermittently during the fall and winter months. Because we occasionally travel your inquiries or requests may be answered by our friend Florence Bergum.
Mahalo for your interest in our island home.

About Florence Bergum
My husband and I have owned property at Prince Kuhio since 1977. At that time we lived in Honolulu and came to Kauai for mini vacations. Later we moved to the mainland as Jimmy continued flying for a major airline. In 2014 we purchased and completely remodeled this unit, #201. A one bedroom, 1 bath ocean view condo. Though we travel the world, our hearts always pull us back to Kauai. Since retirement, we currently enjoy Kauai intermittently during the Fall and Winter months. We want to share our Kauai lifestyle with others, but we still travel occasionally so our friend Florence may answer your questions.

Why Florence Bergum chose Poipu
The island of Kauai and Prince Kuhio Resort has always been special to us. We bought our studio in 1977, we were married in the Fern Grotto (when you could actually walk inside the grotto), and have rebuilt twice after both hurricanes. In Feb 2014 we couldn't resist purchasing #201, an ocean view one bedroom condo. Remodeling began early Spring 2014 and was completed by Nov 2014. Come and relax, make memories, and enjoy a week of adventures. Our sunny location provides the best Kauai has to offer.

We absolutely loved unit 201. After traveling to Hawaii yearly and shelling out hundreds of dollars a night I found this great little condo right across the street from a wonderful snorkeling beach. We had everything we needed in the unit, it has been nicely remodeled and was the cleanest condo we have ever stayed in. The pool area is lovely as are the grounds including a beautiful Koi pond. My husband tells me not to give these raving reviews because then we will have a hard time booking the condo when it gets popular but this is an awesome little unit.
There was a bit of road noise because it is an end unit but it really didn't bother us. The beach across the street has excellent snorkeling. We loved it so much we re-booked for January less than two weeks after returning.
We just spent a week at this lovely condo and I would highly recommend! This is our third time using vrbo and third island. It was very clean and very stocked with everything you could need. The view was so gorgeous! The bed is very comfy and we slept well every night. We walked to Lawai beach just about every day and snorkelled. It was excellent. My husband swam with a turtle for awhile and a monk seal landed at our feet one morning. I loved the area this condo was in and wouldn't hesitate to stay again. The only complaint was that the lanai was so small and we really couldn't enjoy it like we want to when we are in Hawaii. The pool and barbecue areas are really nice, we went to the pool daily. They keep the pretty grounds looked after well! Our first time on Kauai but it won't be our last! This was a perfect condo for 2 people.
A quick stop on the Garden Island - Kauai
We had not been to Kauai for 10 years and want to update ourselves on the Garden island. The condo is as advertised, good for 2 people, clean and close to a couple of nice beaches. The condo is on the 2nd floor right up against the road which generates noise constantly as one of the better beaches is just down the road. The complex is very nice and clean and well kept.
Beware - no elevator, stairs to 2nd floor.
Great place for Two!
Great place to stay on the south side of island. Did day trips from here. Had the added bonus of seeing a celebration of Prince Kuhio Day at the park! What a paradise!
Spectacular Vacation Spot
My wife and I stayed at the condo for our honeymoon and could not have been more pleased. The condo was incredibly clean, well-appointed, and well-decorated. We had everything we needed and more. The condo is exactly as pictured...actually probably better than pictured. The nearby area is also great--very short jaunt to the beach, beautiful pool, and a good base for exploring the rest of the island. We will definitely stay here again if we're lucky enough to make it back!
Once a booking has been through us we will send you a detailed note of things to do/places to go, restaurants in the area, shopping, hikes, etc. The island is full of many "must dos"
