Our comfortable, third-floor, south shore condo is right ON the ocean so you will SEE --and HEAR-- the sound of the surf as soon as you open your front door. The condo, with stylish, contemporary furniture, boasts a comfortable California king bed. Relax "at home" and enjoy the ocean while sitting inside or out on your lanai. Snorkel with turtles right in front of the condo (we sometimes see Eagle Rays in our bay, too)! This is one of the best shore dive sites on the island and our building is consistently rated as one of the best. The condo is nicely furnished so you can get down to the business of relaxing in comfort upon arrival. Come on in and make yourself at home! Most guests who stay in our Rising Sun Suite *do* return, btw....
This Beautiful One-bedroom Has Bay, Ocean, And Mountain Views. Enjoy It All!

About denise Ball
We first ventured to Kaua'i in 1998 and never looked back! After many visits to the island, and managing our oceanfront condo rentals from the SF Bay area, we left Silicon Valley and moved to the island in 2002. BEST decisions we've ever made -- except our marriage almost 31 years ago.
denise Ball purchased this Condo in 2015
Why denise Ball chose Poipu
You can not get any closer to the ocean, and our building is just a few minutes drive to famous Po'ipu Beach Park, the Grand Hyatt, and many other well-known resorts. The Botanical Garden and Spouting Horn are minutes away, as are a multitude of restaurants and shops. Yet our building is "off the beaten path," which means peaceful, quiet serenity....
What makes this Condo unique
Hop on the elevator to the third floor, enter your front door, and you are looking at OCEAN. Your private lanai consists of clear, plexi glass for unobstructed views, so no peeking through the railing. Watch the turtles frolick and feed -- from the lanai, OR from inside your condo.

Paradise on the Beach
My wife and I recently stayed here for 9 days on our honeymoon. The condo has everything you need and is very spacious for two people. The updated furniture and decor made it feel much more like a home than staying in a hotel. The location can't be beat, it's perfectly situated on Kuhio shores very near beaches and restaurants. This unit gets a beautiful view of the sunrise every morning, the balcony was the perfect spot to enjoy with some coffee. A short <1 minute stroll around the corner you'll find a great view of the sunset. Denise was available any time we had questions and sent all kinds of detailed info to make sure we enjoyed our stay. If you're considering a stay on the south shore, I'd highly recommend this place!
season's greetings, and BIG mahalo, Chris. we truly appreciate your kind words and am so glad you enjoyed your honeymoon stay with us. it is very important to us that our guests have a positive experience and are pleased with the condo; we strive for 100% satisfaction, so are dismayed when "things" beyond our control conspire to get in the way: murphy's law, our human error (ooops!), and good ol' mother nature!
we hope you contact us when you are ready to return to the island. an anniversary celebration, perhaps?!
warmest aloha and hau'oli Makahiki Hou; may 2019 be the best year yet for all of us!
Comfortable condo with a wonderful view in a great location!
We really enjoyed our stay in Poipu at this beautiful condo. It was nicely furnished and very clean with a very comfortable king sized bed. The balcony overlooking the water was great and we enjoyed the sound of the waves and watching the turtles swim. The local beaches were wonderful for snorkeling right off the beach. The owner provided snorkeling gear and beach towels. The location on the island was nice for it's proximity to the Waimea canyon and a boat ride to the Napali coast, both of which were amazing! The host, Denise, was very helpful and communicated well about activities and restaurants in the area. There are several shopping areas close by, as well as lots of restaurants. The sunset from the lawn on the opposite side of the building was really gorgeous! (And of course sunrise from the balcony in your pj's.) If you want to explore other parts of the island, it is not difficult. We loved our time in Kauai and hope to return! Thanks!
aloha and thank you for taking time to share information about your stay, Susan. we love that you experienced so many of the things we love about our condo and location.
since we are biased --in our opinion, po'ipu no ka 'oi!-- we especially appreciate it when our guests' comments include some of the things WE feel make our place so special. we hope you'll contact us when you plan a return trip to beautiful kaua'i.
warmest aloha and a hui hou, --denise
Beautiful condo, excellent location
Just returned from a one week stay at this property. It looks just like the photos online. It is clean, tastefully decorated with modern style and a touch of Hawaii. The location is perfect for walking to small beaches, watching surfer and turtles in water, and walking or bike riding to local shops and eateries and other beaches. The owner, Denise was very responsive to all of my inquiries before and during my stay. She lives nearby and I had the pleasure of meeting her and her husband. I loved it here and if I am able to go back will stay here again.
aloha-good morning, Amy. we appreciate your kind words, mahalo!
we enjoyed meeting you too and enjoyed our chats. thank you for the privilege.
we are very glad you were happy with the condo. the goal is to have a place where guests can comfortably relax when at "home." glad you were pleased with our building location: back door, ocean; front door, easy walks and bike rides to things to do, places to shop and eat.
hoping you DO return to our island paradise... we look forward to hearing from you again.
warmest aloha and a hui hou, --d&G
We greatly enjoyed our stay in the Kuhio Shores condo during our time on Kauai. Denise went above and beyond to ensure our trip was perfect, even providing us a tip sheet of where to eat, where to shop, and what activities were a must while on island.
The location of the condo is great, near cute shopping (shops at Kukui’ula and Poipu Shopping Village), some delicious restaurants (The Beach House, Tortilla Republic, Pizzetta were a few of our favorites) as well as close to beaches. We frequented Poipu Beach due to the calmer nature of the water and saw sea turtles and Hawaiian monk seals on shore every day we went! The condo was very clean and well equipped. Drinking our morning coffee on the patio overlooking the ocean (and the sea turtles that visit every morning!) was one of our favorite things to do. The snorkeling next to the Beach House is phenomenal.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to anyone! Before we left we were already planning our next trip back! It is truly magical.
aloha and thank you SO much, Kacy. glad you enjoyed your stay and LOVE that you are already thinking about your return...
mahalo for your kind words: we think our location is perfect too, and it is important to us that our guests are comfortable and happy with their accommodations. we love that we are just a little "off the beaten path" and at the same time, close enough to conveniently enjoy all that po'ipu has to offer.
keep taking care of yourselves and please let me know "when"!
Nicely decorated condo with a fabulous view
Condo was very tastefully decorated and had everything we could need for our stay. Location and the view from the lanai were great. We had such a good time and Denise was in touch throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Since our flight out our final day was late in the evening, it worked out that we could get a late checkout which we appreciated so much. We will definitely be staying here again!
Home away from home
We visited in July for our honeymoon and the place was very nice. We watched the turtles in the bay everyday, and loved hearing the ocean waves every night. On the other side of the building there is a nice place to watch the surfers and the sunset. The condo is just as the pictures show, very clean and modern. Denise gave us a lot of very good suggestions for food and activities, the location is perfect for nice weather all the time on an island that is typically very rainy. You are only a few minutes from very good places to eat and snorkel. We loved our stay and would stay again next time we go to Hawaii. Thank you so much Denise for the lovely time!
In addition to the ocean --with prime snorkeling and surfing locations within a few steps, just outside your door-- there are many shops and restaurants within easy walking distance of Kuhio Shores. Our building is next door to (and shares oceanFRONT lawn with) the renowned "Beach House Restaurant," and is only a short walk to "The Shops at Kukui'ula," our island's newest shopping/dining area (many restaurants to choose from).
