The snorkeling out the glass sliding door off the kitchen and living room is some of the best on Kauai. The warm sand on the cove's beach, only steps away, will invite you to relax and take a rest or read a book. If you are looking to catch some waves, the surf break (called PK's) is only a short paddle away!

You will find an incredibly comfortable King size bed in the bedroom and ceiling fan to keep you cool at night. There is also a full size sofa-bed in the living room for additional sleeping arrangements. The extra clean bathroom has a tile floor and bath/shower. The bathroom is stocked with new, clean towels and starter toiletries.

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 Poipu

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!

Sweet comfy little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little condo..it is exactly as shown! Kitchen has every thing you could possibly need and bed is so incredibly comfortable! One thing I really liked was the assortment of pillows. So many places have HUGE pillows that are not so comfy on the neck!..there was every type of pillow here!

Being on the east side was great..you got the morning sunshine but not the hot sun shining into your condo and heating it up all day.

The owner was so sweet and easy to work with.Very helpful personal service.

If we go back to Kauai again we will for sure and stay here! Aloha!

This is a great condo in the absolute best spot on Kauai. The ground floor is by far the best place to be in this building. It has a beautiful grass lawn, then drops to the sea. Very few people walked in front of the condo, and those who did were mostly neighbors. The view is fantastic.

The best snorkeling on the island (at least accessible from land) is just next door. We also snorkeled directly in front of the condo. Getting in and out there is a bit dicey, but we saw lots of huge turtles. The condo is showing its age, but it was very clean and extremely well equipped with lots of cookware and lots of water toys.

The condo does not have AC; but we did not need it at all during our visit in late Oct., early Nov. The weather during our stay was mostly sunny and warm, but the condo has lots of fans and a nice breeze kept us very comfortable.

We have visited all the islands and have stayed at many VRBO places. This is one of the only ones that we would definitely return to.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this adorable little view condo.. The location was perfect for our short stay as wedding guests and short stay vacationers. The only things that would have made the stay better would have been AC in at least the bedroom.. and a full ironing board and an iron that was not broken and leaked water everywhere.. (which could possibly have been dangerous if I had continued to use it).

Other than that, a nice stay for short trip.. with a magnificent view..

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the condo's view! I had no idea there was anything wrong with the iron so that is good to know! I have already ordered a replacement--a new garment steamer. Had I known during your stay, I would have instructed housekeeping bring you a new iron or steamer, so I apologize for not knowing.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

The condo was very nice. Well stocked and very clean. Very comfortable bed. Nice being right on the water but no acces to the water due to the rocky shore. The location is excellent. The only negative is no AC. It was very hot in the condo, especially during the day with the sun coming in. The fans didn't do enough. We would never rent a place in Hawaii without AC in the future.

Owner's Response: We are considering installing AC in the future. In the meantime, we kindly ask prospective guests that desire AC to rent one that has it. We sincerely want all of our guests to be happy, which is why we consistently have the highest reviews for website accuracy and cleanliness. Our website and communications are clear that our unit does not have AC. This enables us to rent our oceanfront condo for considerably less than the units with AC. For this, we respectfully request that any future guests please rent a unit with AC if you are inclined to write a negative review (or award less than 5 stars) for renting one without it... it's Hawaii after all, you come here to be warm and enjoy the sun, quintessential trade winds and sounds of the ocean (all of which can not be enjoyed with the windows shut and AC running). Aloha.

Great first trip to Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this unit. It was exactly as pictured and was clean. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and we used it to make some meals. We liked the location and split out time between Princeville and this location. Loved the ocean view and watching the sunrise and sunset here each day.

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.

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.
