About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Closest complex to the water in Poipu, this corner unit in Kuhio Shores is situated on the third floor. Repeat guests come year after year to enjoy our oceanfront condo. Whether it's to be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves, relaxing on the lanai enjoying a drink or watching the surfers, whales or the family of sea turtles that come in every evening to feed, staying here will be the highlight of your trip!

This condo features a one bedroom with a king bed and also has a pullout queen sofa. Laundry facilities are found on each floor and there is an onsite manager. The fully-equipped kitchen has a blender, microwave, coffee maker, etc. We recently remodeled the kitchen and bath with all new tile, appliances and fixtures. We have beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella and cooler for guests to use.

Compared to other one bedroom units our corner unit has several advantages. The view is spectacular--270 degrees. You can look out out towards the bay and the green mountains beyond, and all the way around, down the coast of Poipu. Whales, porpoise, surfers and turtles can all be enjoyed from the privacy of your lanai. Speaking of privacy, our bedroom is on the ocean side, not along the hallway on the parking lot side. All you hear are the waves, not late night departing or early arriving guests with their suitcases. Whether you are honeymooners or retirees you will definitely appreciate the privacy. The corner units are the largest by square footage with a larger living room area. Another advantage of our corner unit is the superior ventilation. Huge bay windows facing into the tradewinds allow flow through ventilation when the ocean side windows or sliding door are open.

Be sure to click on the camera below for photos from our last stay. They include underwater shots of the turtles that can be seen by diving right out front of the condo, or in the evening from the lanai.

About The Owner

We are a family of seven (Girls 3, Boys 2)and live in southern California. We love to travel to new places but always enjoy coming back to our 'Home away from home' on Kauai.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1979

Why The Owner chose South Shore

The entire family loves the water so Kauai is a perfect place to play. Surfing, boogie boarding, diving, kayaking and enjoying the ocean views and sealife from our condo's lanai makes Kuhio Shores #309 perfect for us. We can enjoy these activities right out front while other family members can watch from the lanai.

What makes this condo unique

Even though we have been coming to Kauai for 30 years, sometimes several times a year, we still find new things to do and wonders to see. Petroglyphs at Maha'ulepu Beach, the Awa'awapuhi Swamp Trail, Lawai Beach (restricted access), ocean kayaking to Kipu Kai, Kalihiwai rope swing, river Kayaking (Hanalei, Waimea, Kalihiwai), swimming behind Hanakapi'ai Falls on the Napali coast, Secret Beach, the list goes on. Our condo is central, 1 hr. from the west end of Polihale Beach and 90 minutes to the other end at Ke'e Beach. Of course sometimes the best thing is just to kick back on our lanai and watch the whales, surfers and turtles with a cold drink in hand.

Amazing, spectacular, best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay here! Cheryl was super efficient and the booking was easy! The unit was very clean and is even better than the pictures on here. We found everything we needed in the condo (binoculars, guide books, snorkerling gear, beach chairs, boogie board, and even fabric grocery bags for shopping since plastic bags are banned on Kauai). The views are spectacular, the location is close to everything (beaches, restaurants, ice cream shops, longs drugstore), and the whole complex was very quiet. We heard nothing but waves. The king bed and pillows were nice and comfy! Even the bathroom in this unit has a window to an ocean view! We felt warm a few times but we just opened up the doors and windows and used the fans and we were cool as cucumbers very quickly. I strongly recommend this unit for anyone! Hoping to be able to come back soon!

Beautiful Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

Aloha! We booked this condo for our week stay on Kauai. We are a small family of two adults and one teenager. The condo was perfect for us. This was our 3rd time visiting the island but our first time staying at Kuhio Shores. The views of the bay and ocean were spectacular. We were greeted some mornings by a pod of dolphins not too far off from the shoreline and we also enjoyed seeing the sea turtles. My husband and teenager enjoyed the snorkeling at Lawai Beach. The condo was clean, equipped with everything you need and all the necessities. The bed is very comfortable and the teenager was comfortable on the sofa bed. The condo is close to shopping, restaurants and other area beaches. We loved having breakfast on the lanai and watching the sunset in the evenings. I could sit and listen to the waves crashing all day long.

We will be planning a return trip to Kauai as we love coming here and hope to be able to rent this condo again.

Execellent With One Seasonal Caution

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location and unit. The corner spot on the 3rd floor provides super waterfront views in two directions and you can spot sea turtles right off the rocks. The unit is maintained pretty well and all critical things worked well, such as kitchen and bathroom facilities. The place is comfortable and the wifi worked well. Location is good next to a small beach that is good for snorkeling or surfing and it's a short drive to a supermarket. The only caution would be the heat in summer. The units in this development have no air conditioning and it got sticky when we were there. We slept fine and it was never terrible, but a little warm day and night. Plenty of fans in the unit and you need those, even with the windows on both sides. The breezes from the trade winds help too. On the plus side, sleeping with the windows open provides the great and relaxing sound of crashing surf to help lull you to sleep!

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is so well appointed and up to date. I could have been happy never to leave the lanai. The view was beautiful and it was such fun to watch the sea turtles. It's location next to the Beach House restaurant was so convenient. We celebrated my birthday dinner there and didn't have to worry about finding a parking space. Every evening we walked next door and joined the people outside the Beach House watching the unobstructed view of the sunset. The location is very close to Spouting Horn and the McBride and Allerton gardens.

Even the bedroom and bathroom have ocean views. I've never before had a bathroom with a view! The only sounds we heard were the waves, no street or parking lot noise. I highly recommend this unit.

What a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 4 nights at this unit on our 10th wedding anniversary and we were so pleased with the accommodations, view and location that on our next trip to Kauai, we will stay here again. Within 30 seconds of walking into the unit we saw sea turtles just outside the balcony. We snorkeled with the turtles and the abundant fish several times during our stay. The photos of the view in the ad are accurate and don't include all the surfers located just down the shoreline (which we enjoyed watching each night at sunset). Sounds of the waves are continuously heard. The interior of the unit was well maintained and updated and the condo building is next door to the Beach House Restaurant (very nice) and provides great views of the sunsets by walking down to the other side of the building. The location is good for access to activities on the south and west sides of the island and stores and restaurants are located in close proximity. It is also close to the airport.
