Located just 30 feet from the surf on Kauai's sunny south shore, our 1 bedroom, 1 bath, 900 sq. ft., professionally decorated, fully equipped, OCEANFRONT Poipu condo Hawaii vacation rental at the famed Kuhio Shores offer those planning a Hawaii vacation in Poipu Beach some of the most spectacular ocean views, sunrises and sunsets found on the beautiful Island of Kauai, Hawaii.

This exceptional, newly remodeled unit juts out from the main building, putting you 10 feet closer to the ocean and providing totally unobstructed views.

Kuhio Shores is a 75 unit oceanfront condo complex with beaches on both sides, yet total privacy from the lanai because of the 20 foot greenbelt to the ocean. This vacation rental has the closest oceanfront units on all of Kauai, Hawaii.

Situated on a promontory, the building is protected from wave action by a reef offshore, making it ideal for wave, turtle, and whale watching. The ocean just below the condo provides some of the best snorkeling on the island and beyond the reef are three of the south shore's most popular surfing sites; P.K.'s, Centers and Acid Drops.

Planning a Special Occasion... Anniversary, Honeymoon, Birthday Or ...... just because you deserve it.........

You've come to the right place...Enjoy your Hawaii vacation at Our OceanFront Paradise

Enjoy...crystal blue and turquoise ocean, accented by black lava and white sandy beaches, magnificent sunrises and sunsets from your own private lanai.

The giant sea turtles are playing in the surf, whales frolicking further out at sea (Nov-Apr) and monk seals and dolphins often stop by to visit.

Swim with the tropical fish and turtles in some of the best snorkeling on the island. Access is from the beach on both sides of the building. Surfing, bodyboarding, sunning and viewing are there for your pleasure.

Ready to get out and explore? .... jungle and waterfalls, tropical gardens, hiking, sport fishing, golf, boutique shopping and both elegant and casual restaurants await you.

Enjoy a glass of wine, some cheese and relax to the music of the ocean surf; or, a cup of coffee and watch the surfers and listen to the ocean waves break, ALL FROM YOUR PRIVATE LANAI.

Worries and concerns fade in the tranquility of the islands and their beauty. Want to explore the rest of Kauai, our vacation rental makes the perfect home base, located midway between the North and the West side. One day you can drive North to explore the exotic and outstanding North Shore beaches and lush greenery, the next you might want to head West to view the Waimea Canyon, also called the 'Grand Canyon of the Pacific'.

Relax at one of the premier oceanfront resort vacation rental destinations in Hawaii. Shop in Old Koloa town, visit Poipu and Shipwrecks beaches, take a short walk to the Spouting Horn and Allerton Botanical Gardens where Jurassic Park was filmed, then dine at the award winning Beach House Restaurant right next door.

You may find it difficult to leave the lanai, watching the surfers, sunsets, giant sea turtles, spinner dolphins and listening to the lullaby of the ocean waves crashing......And, for the more culinary inclined, a fully equipped kitchen in the unit along with a common barbeque area outside are available for your use.

Great right on the ocean property. We saw sea turtles from our balcony and whale spouts. We loved falling asleep to the waves crashing on the rocks right below us. We just opened the windows and did not have to turn on the air conditioner. Nice condo and having the kitchen came in handy. The only thing I would say is that my wife and I only had one bath towel each for the week. It would have been nice to have had 2 towels each. We could have used the pay floor community washer and dryer, but who wants to do that and wait for it to wash and dry, when you are on vacation.

We enjoyed the condo and surroundings very much. The view and location were superb. Our only complaint was the drawers and closets were stuffed with stuff which didn't allow us to unpack our suitcases as there was very limited space to store it. The kitchen was well stocked, but again limited space where we could put our groceries. We were there 3 weeks and it was wonderful.

Everything was excellent. My only request is to replace your wash cloths, it looks like they were used to wipe up the floors. Thank you. Really, everything else was perfect!

The condo is perfect for awesome sunrise and sunset views. An awesome location central to many things to do in the island. We loved the condo and it was very cozy and so nice to go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the surf on the rocks. We were very happy with our choice of Bob and Merideth’s beautiful condo and can’t wait to return! Mahalo!

The location is great, condo is well stocked and the view is awesome! It was fun to watch the turtles from the lanai. The only suggestion.....would be to have space for guests to unpack their bags into a dresser and a cabinet for food during the stay. We will be coming back for sure!

We really enjoyed our stay here - the room is literally right on the ocean. We listened to the waves all night and watched the turtles on the reefs in the morning. The location is right next to Beach House and Lawai Beach (excellent snorkeling). We'd love to come back!

This property had everything we wanted - an amazing view to watch the sunrises, sunsets and surfers, a well stocked kitchen to cook meals to enjoy on the lenai and a short drive to beaches. We will definitely be back!

Check in was breeze and the unit was very clean. Alllthe necessities were provided. Kitchen was equipped and we appreciated the selection of snacks provided -nice touch. Overall I recommend this property - 5 stars My only complaint about our stay was it was too short.

The condo is beautiful and the location proved great for our use as home base. The size was perfect for the two of us. The view from the lanai is stunning-we enjoyed watching surfers, sea turtles, sunrises, and sunsets. We found excellent restaurants nearby with The Tasting Room in Koloa standing out as our favorite. We would definitely stay here should we return to Kaui.

This condo. WOW! What a beautiful view and perfect location for getting around the island. Everything you could possibly need was stocked! There were plenty of dishes, cookware, beach chairs, beach towels, soft cooler, etc. Also the gift baskets filled with goodies and coffee was very unexpected but much appreciated! When we weren’t out exploring, we spent the majority of our condo time out on the lanai in the rocking chairs searching for sea turtles and watching the surfers. The condo itself is not giant, but provided more than enough room for me and my husband. The lovely renovations by the owners also made the condo feel extra bright and new. I would still choose this condo any day over a hotel room. You truly cannot beat the ocean views. I noticed that many people have returned back to this unit and I completely understand why after experiencing a stay here! Thank you again Bob and Meredith for sharing your lovely condo with us! It was such a treat and I can’t wait to come back!

The condo is in a great location in Poipu. The Beach House Restaurant is right next door. The view is stunning. You can just sit on the patio and watch the turtles and surfers. We even went and sat in the grass one night just to watch the sunset. It was also close to several of our dive spots which made the location perfect. We booked this location, for our 25th Anniversary trip before heading to our timeshare on the North Shore. The toilet didn’t flush and we had to call the owner. He asked my husband knowing we were VRBO ourselves, if he would fix it. We were a little taken back and said we would, because apparently he has asked the guest before us. We agreed on a small amount of money to get part and our time installing and getting part in Lihue. We took pictures of both and didn’t hear back from the owner until we called VBRO. I didn’t feel like we should have ever had to do that on our vacation. There are plugs in the Master that aren’t in the wall properly and you can’t charge anything because the plugs fall out. We were never able ti get the cable to work in the living room, so we watched TV from the bedroom. The condo could use some new paint. We enjoyed our stay except the above mentioned issues, that can be addressed quickly. It is a beautiful location.

The condo was nicely maintained and situated. The kitchen had everything we needed and the complex was next to the Beach House restaurant which was excellent, and just a short drive to the coastline hike at Shipwrecks which we did twice. The best beach on the south shore is at the end of that hike. The only issue we had was with a hum that we called the owners about and who immediately got their maintenance team to assess. It wasn't resolved, unfortunately but i know it will be by the time we return, which we will.

Wonderful stay at a beautiful location. We enjoyed hearing the surf daily and being able to have easy access to the ocean. The unit was just as list and had everything we needed. The on-site management was very welcoming as we came in late from our long travels. Thank you so much for the wonderful unit, we look forward to future trips!

We had a great time at the condo. It was very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the view and sounds of the ocean from the lanai. At night we slept with windows open to the sounds of crashing waves. The condo is stocked well. We had everything needed on the days we decided to eat in. We come to the Islands every year and have stayed in several VRBO condos over the years. This one is the best so far.

What a great place to stay. If you like to stay next to the ocean this is the place. Great views. The ocean is loud but we loved it.

Very happy we splurged and stayed a couple nights here. I lost count of how many sea turtles we saw, and on our first morning, we saw humpbacks in the distance while we had our coffee. The owners were kind enough to have boogie boards for us to use, and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. A wonderful experience!

This condo totally met our expectations and the location of the property and the view from the condo can't be beat! There wasn't anything that we needed that wasn't provided. It made our 20 year anniversary from when we got married in Kauai in 2003 a perfect stay and memory.

Aloha! We had the best time celebrating our anniversary in this incredible oceanfront condo. There was everything you could want or need, including breathtaking views of the ocean and an abundance of whale watching! Drinking coffee on the lanai in the morning, watching the sunrise and then, the most breathtaking sunsets that we have ever seen! We will definitely be back! Thanks so much Bob and Meredith for sharing your paradise! Mahalo! Rob and Kim Simmons

A spectacular view that never gets boring. We will for sure come back soon. Thank you so much and the goodies on the kitchen table and the condiments in the fridge or a really nice added touch.!

We absolutely LOVED this condo! The location within Kuhio Shores was perfect-this unit stack provides the most unobstructed view of the turtles, surfers, and even the bridal parties getting a beautiful sunset photo. Good luck tearing yourself away from the lanai! The condo is situated to enjoy both sunrises and sunsets. Bob and Meredith have stocked the condo completely-just bring your swimsuits and touring gear! Everything we could have needed whether cooking meals in, enjoying a beach day or relaxing in comfort was there. The bed is very comfortable and the AC is a plus! Thank you Bob & Meredith for a wonderful experience on our first trip to Kauai!

We celebrated our 57th Anniversary on Kauai the previous week. It was wonderful. Our airlines changed our times/date for returning home, so we had to find another condo for just one night, and you had yours availaable, just upstairs from where we'd stayed for the week. It was just beautiful, stunningly remodeled, the views spectacular, the furnishings were so comfy, and a perfect last day/night. Thank you for having it available! Even Colleen, the housekeeper, was delightful. Many thanks! We hope to be back!

This place was a beautifully perfect for two or small family. We went to sleep with the ocean in our sights and woke up with the sunrise on the ocean. Bob and Meredith have created a beautiful home away from home. They had get away coolers, sunbrella and everything for the Hawaiian beach life style. Even yoga in the mornings watching the sea turtles. If there is one thing to complain about it was that there was no ketchup in the fridge. However if that’s all I have to say then that’s on me. Awesome place recommend it to everybody.

Spacious, clean, nicely decorated. The view from the liana was fabulous. We would sit out and watch the sea turtles and the surfers. Never stayed in a condo that close to the water. June 15th - 19th

Staying with n this Condi is idyllic. It's built to maximize the experience of being so close to the view. At the kitchen table or in the lanai, you can comfortably view surfer after surfer putting on a show. I love the sound of the waves - specially while I'm in bed. My wife is fascinated by the cute turtles. We have a difficult time leaving our condo - the view there is that mesmerizing. The kitchen is more than adequate, the bed is comfortable as are the couch and each chair. We will be back a 3rd time.

My husband and I loved every second of our short stay at the Poipu condo. We spent a major part of the time on the patio playing cards and enjoying the gorgeous view. Thanks for the perfect vacation.

We loved this property! We could sit on the balcony forever and not get bored watching surfers and sea life. The sound of the waves hitting the rocky shore could be heard through the whole unit which was amazing. It was great to walk to the beach club restaurant next door (one of the best on the island) and not worry about parking. The little beach around the corner was perfect for snorkeling and easy to get to. It’s a pretty rocky beach so bring shoes but most beaches are on the island. We had a mix up with check in but reached out to Bob the owner and he was very quick to respond and get us settled. We hope to be back!

We loved staying in this condo! The bed was super comfortable, which is important to us, and the ocean views were spectacular. We loved watching the turtles in the water and the surfers from our lanai. We will be back!

This property is in a great location. The condo itself is very comfortable and had everything we needed. Sometimes it was hard to leave the balcony, which feels like it’s right on the ocean. One morning I spent hours lounging out there watching sea turtles and surfers. This unit has air conditioning, which is a huge plus if you need to cool down to feel comfortable. AC isn’t always standard on Kauai.

The condo exceed our expectations! The views from the lanai are stunning. Beautiful sunrises off to the left, and sunsets of to the right. We saw several whales off in the distance, and turtles right in front of us! The snorkeling at Lawa'i beach next door is excellent. I saw several turtles there, as well! Highly recommend it. We'll be back!

This condo is simply incredible! Highly recommend to anyone staying in Kauai. Only category I questioned not giving 5-stars to was the accuracy of pictures, the pictures simply do not give this place justice. Everyone goes to and recommended The Beachhouse restaurant next door for sunsets, but we had the same view every night and the sunrise every morning from the Lanai. The stars at night were breathtaking on the Lanai as well. The place was clean, a great place to clean up and crash at after island adventures. Great location on the south shore area near great food and good for driving any direction. North shore is a little far away, but this place was so ideal and perfect for our week stay on the island.

We picked this property for the stunning view, and it coincidentally was perfectly located near several shops/restaurants/beaches. The condo was spotless and came furnished with a number of helpful items (sunscreen, beach chairs, a picnic cooler, etc..) - they thought of everything! Check-in was a breeze, and the community has a perfect view of the sunsets at night. We will be back!

This was our favorite place to stay during our honeymoon! The pictures are accurate but seeing the unit in person exceeded our expectations. It is clean, spacious, and has everything you could need - whether that's cooking dinner in the kitchen, grabbing beach chairs and an umbrella for the beach, or making a cup of coffee to sit out on the lanai. Bob and Meredith were very quick to respond and were so welcoming and friendly leading up to and during our stay with all communications. We would certainly stay here again!
