About Kuhio Shores 103 Owner

We are a family of 5 who love the beach and enjoy spending time with each other. We met 17 years ago while lifeguards on Southern CA Beaches and now fill our time with our teaching/coaching professions and with our three adventurous children. Together, we especially love surfing, snorkeling (anything in or around the ocean), hiking and traveling.

Kuhio Shores 103 Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why Kuhio Shores 103 Owner chose South Shore

It is island paradise as close to the ocean and sealife as we could find anywhere.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy watching sea turtles swimming around while making breakfast in the kitchen and sighting breeching whales while lounging on the shaded lanai in the afternoon. We also enjoy the freedom of having a groundfloor unit allowing direct access to the beach and ability to spread out the lounge chairs on the lawn. When taking a break from swimming with the turtles and dolphins or exploring nearby beaches & waterfalls, we spend time watching our children look for shells and play in the tidepools while we're on our lanai or inside the property even (we really are that close to the water!)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our week long stay was not long enough. Kuhio Shores #103 exceeded all our expectations. It was immaculately clean, had new furniture and pristine linens. We loved being able to watch the sea turtles swim around in the bay while relaxing on the lanai. The snorkeling just outside the condo was better than anywhere else on the island. We felt so relaxed and pampered at this oceanfront condo. The king bed with new, crisp linens was so comfortable and the hanging, nest chair for reading in the living room was an added bonus. Besides being oceanfront with a feeling of seclusion, the condo was still within walking distance to delicious restaurants and botique shops. Five Stars plus!

Primo location, simple but just right.

  • 5 of 5

The facility is adjacent to one of the finer beach spots in Kauai and a fantastic restaurant, the Beach House, and it just so happens that it's also one of the best snorkeling spots. People show up just to watch the sunsets from this spot on the lawn ocean frontage you can can walk 150' to from your patio. You can take an early AM snorkel right after coffee and you have the place to yourself; a great way to wake up. Our preference in travel is hiking, exploring and adventuring vs. ultimate creature comforts so this place is perfect. Has everything you need, not a lot on frills, but it's clean, comfortable and ideally located. Don't forget to check the bedroom closet (behind a solid door) to find all the beach gear. We missed it since it's hidden behind the bedroom door until we were checking out.

Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and the condo. I would suggest perhaps a couple more big fans as it was a bit humid but overall it was lovely. The view can't be beat.

Unit 103 - Very comfortable with excellent views

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Although the unit sits on the bay side, the views and benefits of the ocean are quite amazing. The ground floor views get better as the units go up in numbers.

The unit allows a nice vantage point to watch the sunrise. One can easily walk to the lawn area behind the beach house to watch the sunset.

The ground floor provides quick access to the water and nearby snorkeling in contrast to the elevated units that require guests to walk down and around the building.

Our unit was very well stocked with cooking utensils, French Press (for the serious coffee freaks) and most things needed to prepare higher end meals.

Owners were very well organized and pleasant to work with. They provided a thorough and detailed list of activities to consider, local stores, and all pertinent information needed for our trip. They were very quick to respond to our questions.

Cons: The only downside of the ground floor is the foot traffic that passes by the unit. There were a lot of locals/other Kuhio residents that came through to access the ocean for surfing/viewing. There is a key surfing area behind the Beach House Restaurant. Therefore, if you want more privacy, the upper units would be better.

No AC - coming from Southern Cal in August, we were somewhat accustomed to the summer heat. However, it did take some adjusting to the combination of heat and relative humidity. The bedroom is equipped with several fans (bonus) and we kept the screens open at night to allow air flow. Nonetheless, it did get a bit warmer at night than what we were acclimated to. Just something to consider if you're prone to warm up at night.

The unit is somewhat basic in regards to furnishings, materials, flooring, etc.. Some of the other units have higher end appliances, kitchens, and furnishings but probably cost more to rent.

Overall, I believe it was a good value. If you intend to venture out, which all of you should, this would be a very good choice.

Absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Tha condo and location were fabulous. The beds were extremely comfortable (our 2 boys slept on the sleeper sofa in the lounge), and the condo had every amenity you could possibly need for your stay. The view from the patio was amazing, and we often walked along the grass around the corner to watch the spectacular sunsets. The only downside was that we didn't stay longer! Mahalo Noel for a fabulous stay.

Spectacular Snorkeling (best on the island!) just out front of property. Excellent surfing on outside reef--paddleout from property! To literally see our condo on the water, just Google Earth it. (5050 Lawai Raod, Poipu, HI 96756). Off the beaten path, yet walkable to terrific stores, shopping and dining.
