Overview

About the property

Amazing Romantic Designer Suite right on Top of the Pacific Ocean

This exceptional and unmatched designer-decorated oceanfront honeymoon suite is located on the sunny south shore of Hawaii's garden island. Our luxurious condo is just 30 feet from the ocean. It offers 180-degree coastline views from the lanai, and ocean views from every room. Watch the sun set into the ocean, and drift off to sleep each night with the sights and sound of the waves pounding at your doorstep. And by gently sliding the hand crafted shoji bedroom panels open, you will enjoy the warmth of the morning sunrise. Newly installed A/C in March 2017.

Don't be misled by large 'Oceanfront' resorts where your room is actually blocks from the water. This is the real thing: Hawaii's Garden Island of Kauai at its best! Kuhio Shores is centrally located in Poipu and if it was any closer to the water, you'd be wet. Directly out front of your lanai is Kauai's premier surfing and snorkeling spots. Five additional beaches are located within walking distance, as are golf courses, tennis, restaurants, shopping and the spectacular Spouting Horn blow hole.

Our honeymoon suite is a showcase of quality and professional tropical design with rich hand crafted Brazilian cherry wood throughout, Bamboo ceilings, Jenair appliances, warm Egyptian sand stone flooring, beautiful granite counter-tops, marble shower, 32' inch plasma TV/DVD surround sound. Wall to wall mirrors, hand crafted shoji doors, fine cookware and Tommy Bahama linens and furnishings. When only the best will do... I promise you, this honeymoon suite is unmatched in Kuhio shores

Here are just a few of our exceptional amenities: an inviting, spacious, floor plan in which every room opens up to beautiful sights and sound of the blue pacific ocean. Enjoy watching the turtles feed just below your living room or do some snorkeling directly out front. We can accommodate up to 4 adults with a spacious master suite featuring a king size bed and trundle sofa sleeper in the living room with all linens provided. We even include internet and computer desk, beach chairs, beach towels and cooler for our guests!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Rick and Kathy,

We’re safely back in Boston and I wanted to let you know what a great time we had while visiting Kauai.

Even after reading all the reviews and seeing many pictures of the condo, I was still nervous about whether we’d like it until we actually arrived. But as soon as we opened the door, I knew we’d made the right choice – it was even better than we had hoped. The closeness to the ocean was amazing, and the views were just spectacular. Seeing the surfers right outside, the beautiful sunsets, and hearing the sound of the ocean was just great. We were also really impressed with the condo itself – other units we’ve rented were cheaply furnished with the bare minimum of decorating touches, but we could see the care and expense you’ve gone to, and it really makes the unit feel like a home, not an empty shell with no character. I already miss lounging on that great chair next to the lanai. The kitchen was excellent and it was also really nice to use the outside grill.

Apart from the comfort, quality and proximity to the ocean, we also really liked the location of the condo. During our trip, the weather was quite bad on other parts of the island, but it was always sunny and warm at Kuhio Shores. One day we visited Hanalei Bay, Princeville, etc. where there was heavy rain, really strong winds, and very dangerous seas, but when we got back “home” it was beach weather, as was the case every day. The location was also very convenient for touring the different areas all over the island. The local shops and restaurants were all very good too.

One thing that surprised us, even though mentioned in many reviews, was the excellent snorkeling at Kuhio Shores. We have snorkeled in many parts of the Caribbean as well as Bermuda and California, and were really surprised to find probably the best on shore snorkeling we’ve ever seen right outside the condo. The variety and number of fish in the calm, shallow water at the beach beside the Beach House restaurant (just steps from the door) was terrific, and every time we swam out in front of the building we encountered several friendly giant sea turtles, it was really great !

It is definitely on our list to visit again, and we would absolutely stay at #316, as well as recommend it to anyone.



Thanks for sharing

We will be back! There is only one place to stay and this is it.

  • 5 of 5

EVERYTHING is as it is portrayed in the description and photos. Ric was great to work with. Couldn't have asked for anything, it is all there. Simple statement but it sums up our stay, beautiful and it all works. Well maintained. Beautiful setting. Close to everything on the South end of Kauai. On our next trip to Kauai we will coordinate our schedule with the availability of this unit. None other.

Can't get closer to the ocean unless you are in it!!

  • 5 of 5

A delightful, private, peaceful place especially for a couple's special occasion. Turtle, birds, surfers right out your wall of windows. Very

private lanai. Excellent snorkeling right next door. Close to many very good restaurants. Golf course just across the street. The sight and sounds of the ocean fill this condo. Hard to beat for the price.

Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so looking forward to staying at this condo and it turned out to be better than we imagined. The sound of the ocean was so tranquil. We could barely pull ourselves away from the lanai, we enjoyed seeing whales, dolphins, sea turtles and the many surfers plus the beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed the quiet location that was close enough to all of the activities and sights that we enjoy. We will recommend your place to family and friends and hope one day to return.

Spectacular Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to call this our "home away from home " for a week in October, 2014. Perfectly located for sunsets from the oceanfront lanai to snorkeling or surfing in and around the bay near the Beach House Restaurant (Acid Drop Surf Spot). Clean, well decorated, fully supplied for an amazing Kauai adventure. Tip: best way to cool things down is open the screen/main doorway- the cross breeze is amazing! Rick and Kathy were wonderful to work with and have created a wonderful haven to escape the "real world". We definitely recommend this home for your island getaway.

Perfectly romantic!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 34th anniversary at this beautiful condo in paradise! The sounds of the surf every day and night lulled us to complete relaxation as we sat in the lanai sipping champagne. We visited Poipu Beach nearby and ate ice cream at Lapperts...yum! The property is right on the beach, so no need to sunbathe anywhere else unless you want to explore other beaches. We loved ALL the beaches we saw in Kauai, and we saw several from Hanalei Bay to Poipu. Our trip to the Napali coast was breathtaking! We also kayak'd and hiked to Uluwehi Falls in Wailua! Yes, even at our age we could do it and had the time of our lives! We celebrated our anniversary at the Beach House Restaurant next door with its awesome sunset to close the evening. All in all, #316 was the perfect place to base our stay in Poipu, and we definitely will plan to stay there again!
