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

This lovely room overlooks the beautiful ocean and crashing waves looking for turtles

  • 4 of 5

We booked this trip a couple weeks before and we were happy this unit was available. We had some trouble with the keys getting in but used the key pad so we didn’t deal with the keys. The views were amazing and we enjoyed the balcony in the mornings and evenings watching the turtles and surfers. During our stay there was lots of construction and maintenance going on so we headed out to see and enjoy the island. We made use of the beach chairs, cooler, etc that were on the balcony to use during our stay.

The only problem we had was there is not a deadbolt on the front door. So technically anyone who knows the code can walk in at any time, and as we were leaving the cleaning lady popped in when I was on the toilet. Thankfully my husband was near the front door and as they chatted i could get out of the embarrassing situation.

Perfect place and ever better view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Poipu beach. Rick was extremely accommodating. The unit has everything we could need and more! Having a cooler, beach towels, boogie board, snorkel gear, made our honeymoon that much more relaxing.

Thank you for a great 5 days in Kauai!

So Many Positives!

  • 5 of 5

Here are just a few:

- The location is perfect - Right next to the Beach House restaurant, short drive to shopping and the bigger beaches.

- The view is amazing! Loved watching the turtles and surfers over morning coffee.

- The unit is comfortable. The layout makes it feel big!

- The 'extras' were appreciated - Beach chairs, mats, snorkel gear and cooler were fantastic. Also, the refrigerator with built in water and ice was great.

- The complex was nice and quiet.

- Setting up the stay was super easy. The owners were quick to respond to the few questions we had. We very much appreciated them letting us arrange a later checkout!

We will be back to Kauai and we will absolutely look to stay in this same unit again!

  • 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.
