Overview

About the property

1 - Bedroom, Ocean, Park And Mountain View, Full Kitchen, Remodeled

Our Prince Kuhio 206 condominium is a charming one-bedroom unit that has been recently updated. This vacation retreat features slab granite counters, new carpet, new appliances and cookware, and a generous king bed. It is close to everything and a great place to come home to after a day of sight-seeing.

Spend your mornings watching the sunrise on the ocean-view lanai. Take a stroll down the lane to the Shops at Kukuiula , or walk across the street to one of the top snorkeling beaches on Kauai. There is a popular surf-break just off the point where you can try your hand at surfing, or just watch the local talent as they ride the waves.

Enjoy relaxing by the newly renovated pool, surrounded by lush, tropical gardens and a beautiful lava rock waterfall. Have a sunset cocktail or dinner at the famed Beach House restaurant, just across the street. If you prefer to cook yourself, the kitchen is fully equipped and there is a wonderful barbeque area onsite. The Prince Kuhio even has a lovely koi pond in the gardens.

At the end of the day, climb into the comfortable king size bed outfitted with plush Tommy Bahama bedding. Doze off listening to the rustling of the palm trees and the breaking ocean waves.

We keep our unit stocked with beach chairs, coolers, and beach towels. If our one-bedroom unit is not available for your dates, check out our beautiful studio at https://www.vrbo.com/375952.

About Colleen Jergens

We were married at Shipwreck Beach, just a few miles down the road from the Prince Kuhio Condominums on the sunny side of Kauai. We purchased a studio condo here in 2011 and we are so happy to make this 1-bedroom available to our guests as well.

Colleen Jergens purchased this condo in 2015

Why Colleen Jergens chose Poipu

We enjoyed visiting several of the Hawaiian Islands, but Kauai quickly became our favorite. After staying at a few different hotels/condos we knew the Prince Kuhio was the right place for us. We love the quiet, laid-back feel of the complex and the stunning beauty of the grounds.

What makes this condo unique

We love the monk seals that laze around the beach across the street. We often snorkel there and enjoy the multitude of fish and turtles we get to share the water with. Each evening the there is a loose knit group wandering across the street to take in the sunset at Lawai Beach - it has become a ritual of sorts, with lots of friendly folks basking in the last rays of the day.

We enjoy exploring all the different sides of the island, but it is always great to come back to Prince Kuhio - our home away from home.

It was okay

  • 3 of 5

Our condo was clean and well stocked. As per the pictures, the kitchen is updated and the view rather nice, although the narrow lanai was difficult to sit on...better for standing. Parking was fair and it was priced better than some. Beyond that - it was an older complex - not really vintage, just older. As an example, a window leading from shower into living room might be good for circulation, but poor for privacy. A large towel and screws above the window helped. We left early to have a more comfortable experience of staying on the island. The owner's reaction made our decision feel right. I won't copy and paste their email here, but it was hardly understanding. We've stayed in older midwest cottages 'up north' - I would compare it to that...with ocean and palms- rather than pines.

Owner's Response: We have 32 reviews, most are 5-star. Please read them and make your own conclusion. The photos of our unit are current and correct. They depict exactly what the unit is. The shower window was installed when the complex was built several years ago for the purpose of eliminating humidity from the shower. It has privacy glass so you cannot see through it when you close the jalousies. The design of our unit with the shower window is the same for all of the one-bedrooms in the front of the building. We were very dismayed by the communication from this party, and saddened by the negative review. We always provide our guests with a contact number where my husband can be reached with questions/concerns, but they never called it. They notified us via email that they were leaving a few days early, with no explanation. This was quickly followed by a second email with a very hostile tone threatening to leave a negative review if we didn’t refund their money for the nights they were abandoning. Frankly, we were quite puzzled by the whole thing. We are so fortunate that most of our guests have been very nice people to work with. We truly want guests to be happy here.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Listen to the surf sounds while you sleep, and wake to morning sun on the balcony. By afternoon this area is in shade - which is a good thing. The bed was comfortable, the tiled shower is very large, and the fully equipped kitchen kitchen allowed us to eat at "home" whenever we wanted. Wifi is reliable and fast enough to stream to our devices, but bring a firestick or roku to stream thru the TV. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. We had no issues with bugs or critters. The Beach House Restaurant beach is a 3 minute barefoot walk, and is good for reading in shade or sun, and has great abundance and variety of fish for snorkeling even close to shore. Beach umbrella and beach chairs are in the unit. We also brought our glass of wine to toast the the sunset along the public waterfront sidewalk in front of the restaurant. With the winter North-East Trade winds blowing, the Poipu area gets much less rain and fewer cloudy days than the East or North sides. We were very pleased overall.

Felt like home, comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Great location for walks, snorkeling, shopping and beautiful scenery all around. We had been to Prince Kuhio before so knew what to expect....did not disappoint. More flowers blooming around the property than last time we visited which I always enjoy. We were closer to the road this time but it did not affect or bother us in the least. I laughed sooo very hard, the outside deck is quite narrow so when my husband sat on a chair his shoulders were wider than the deck. That did not stop us at all from enjoying the views, parakeets, scenery and lovely trade-winds. Would be nice if there was tile or resilient flooring other than carpet as you can keep it so much cleaner and fresher but that might be in the future plans. Lay out of the unit worked very well and we enjoyed our stay immensely.

Wonderful small condo. Very clean and artfully decorated.the bed was great also.

  • 4 of 5

The reason I gave this condo 4 stars is there is no air conditioning. It is well ventilated And prefect when the trade winds are blowing. The patio has a great view. It is small. I would stay here again.

This condo was just beautiful! Perfect location for strolling to the beach. It was wonderful to sleep with the windows and sliding door open and hear the waves. Also, no bugs at all! Very clean! Thank you Colleen and we will book this again in the future!
