Our family of four ( 12 & 13yr old daughters) had a wonderful stay at your beautiful home.
The views and sounds of the crashing waves are incredible. Perfect location with the best shave ice at Riptides across the way. We loved watching the sea turtles and a great surf break out front was awesome.
The condo was fully stocked with everything you would need. Beach chairs, towels, umbrella and plenty of coolers and snorkel gear. Thank you Surf Song, we will return again for sure.
The views from Kuhio Shores Condo (especially this unit) are stunning. Not only that, right in front of the building you can jump in for body boarding, surfing & snorkeling with majority of time honu’s are in the area - please respect & stay a safe distance from them. As always, know your ability when entering ocean. If this spot gets too rough for you to go into, just a few steps away is nice beach area to enter.
The Beach House Restaurant is next door but I can’t comment on that as most of the cooking was done within the condo unit. It must be good as the place was always filled with people!
Communications with Owner’s were excellent.
The view of the ocean and the waves and watching everybody surf right outside your window is fantastic. The Surfin snorkeling, and everything is right outside your property to sum it up it’s a great place to rent for your vacation spot. Don’t really like the idea of having to wash your own towels. We had an early flight to catch in the morning laundry rooms don’t open till 7:30 was really cutting it close and to me that’s just something the property people should be taken care of not the guest

The location of the property and location of the condo in the property were perfect. Beach access beside condo. Maintenance personnel keep the property looking great.
The condo was perfect. We ate out most nights but used the kitchen for breakfast and snacks. Everything is well stocked.
The owners were wonderful in communicating everything we needed.
7th year at Surf Song. Magical each Time
We stayed in room 219 and it had to of had the best view of the ocean, the sunsets were magnificent . Seeing all the rainbows in the ocean and watching all the turtles and dolphins, just made our trip the trip of a lifetime. Thank You.
Location was wonderful with beautiful view and close to restaurants etc. Upon arrival, we did not find anyone to checkin with but we did already have the code to get in. Disappointed when we found the condo still having previous tenants trash. There was also no parking permit left in the condo so we had to seek that also from the Manager. I left a phone message for the Owner but had to call back the next morning to talk with him. During the night we realized that the AC was not working…blowing warm air and would cut itself off in the middle of the night. This went on for the entire vacation. The owner did say he had a breaker changed prior to our arrival which indicates there were problems already with the AC. The Manager was brought in and eventually an AC company came 3 days later finding that a part was needed that had to be ordered. It would have been nice if we had been told about the AC upfront. Roaches were also found in the hall shower. We had to request more towels and bath mats as they were not there to begin with. The Owners did refund us $350 for the inconvenience but it certainly didn’t make up for the hot temperature in the condo and all the time spent for us to try to get the AC to work per the owner’s request. Remember there are a lot of windows and the west sun hits hard in the afternoon making it really hot. The windows were opened, but because it had been hot for so long, it was hard for the condo to cool off and the breeze wasn’t as plentiful as it could have been. As for Kauai…it was great…..very beautiful island.
Miss Joy and Mr. Walt
Amazing hosts with a perfect place to catch the waves, the stars and beach! Must stay ! Mahalo!
This is a beautiful ocean front condo with everything you need for a great vacation. The views are spectacular - surfers, spinner dolphins, turtles and whales - all from the lanai. The owners were lovely to deal with, very responsive and helpful. We hope to be back again soon!
Everything was great. Had ac not work for a while when we tried to use it but otherwise it was amazing. We will be back!!!
Lovely location with sunsets and sea creatures (whales, turtles) viewed from the lanai. Well equipped, wonderful hosts, unit near all you may need. Walk to dining or beach. Elevator if needed. Parking is available. Nice site manager. Parrots flock and roost nearby.Ocean sounds lull you to rest quietly.
We had a wonderful time at Surf Song. The views cannot be beat - gorgeous sunrises followed by whale sightings and even better sunsets. Walt and Joy are very accommodating hosts - it was a pleasure to enjoy their beautiful property. What a way to kick off a New Year, and spend time with friends vacationing in Kauai!
The property was just as lovely in person as it looked on the listing, we were very happy!
Our stay was absolutely perfect. My husband and I visited Kauai for the first time and couldn’t have picked a better place to stay. The condo has a spectacular view and is very comfortable and cozy. We had everything we needed and the snorkeling from the adjacent beach was great. Cannot recommend this property and the hosts enough!
This condo has the most amazing views! You really are RIGHT ON THE WATER... open the windows listen to the waves crash, watch the surfers, the amazing sunsets, and parakeets! Will stay again! Thank you!
To give this place a 5 star review still isn't good enough. This property is beyond words, my husband and I spent 2 weeks here for our Honeymoon in October, and we both cried when we had to leave. The views are spectacular, we watched the turtles surfing in the waves every single morning, there had to be 30+ turtles at a time. We saw dolphins and monk seals swimming back and forth. My husband had a great time fishing right there from the sore and actually caught a lot of really beautiful fish. Waking up to the sunrise and the parakeets is something I could get used to!!! We cannot wait to come back here and highly recommend this place. When we needed Walt and Joy for a little issue we had they were very quick to help us get everything resolved and were very nice. I know some people complained about the tent at The Beach House but we found it didnt obstruct our view and was actually pretty amazing to see all the weddings happening right below us, we even danced to the cha cha slide one night LOL! And the stop the weddings promptly at 9pm so there is no noise issue. Seriously I can't say enough good things about this place. We will be back every years for our anniversary!
Beautiful views and location. We loved it. Friendly hosts and lovely amenities. The sound of the waves lull you asleep at night. We would highly recommend. 🥰

Excellent accommodations at Surf Song condo. View from the lanai is the incredible. From morning to dusk we enjoyed watching the ocean waves crash on shore. Watching the sea turtles and surfers each day was mesmerizing. Evening sunsets were spectacular. The owners Walt and Joy accommodated our needs. We highly recommend this particular condo at Kuhio Shores.
This property was exactly as advertised! Beautiful location, comfortable, well-supplied, and convenient. The previous reviews that mentioned the restaurant next door and their tent were not our experience. We were on location from Saturday through Saturday. The Saturday and Friday evenings there was a tent erected for a wedding and reception. We watched the sunset from the lanai both nights and we could not even see the tent. In addition, the receptions were completed and quiet by 10pm.
Finally, the check-in process and instructions were accurate and easy! We would HIGHLY recommend this property!
First of all the location and view couldn’t be beat. The owners were very nice and responded to concerns as best they could. The challenge started when we arrived and entered the condo about 3:30pm. Knowing check in was at 4, e just wanted to put out bags in because we had a group dinner reservation next door at the Beach House at 4:15om. However we discovered that the condo has not been cleaned and no one was there to clean it. Immediately we called the owner. Did not answer at first but we got a call back quickly. The owner was very surprised. They called and discovered that the cleaning company has overlooked our condo. They sent someone out asap We went to dinner. However if we hadn’t checked the condo first and just went to dinner we would have come back at 10:30 or so to an Uncleaned condo. Regardless it was cleaned when we arrived back. However we soon discovered that the room AC has been turned in to the lowest setting. For some reason the humidity and low temp must have caused it to lead and drip water all over the bed. Everything down to the mattress pad was wet. We could not get to any change is sheets and had no loose change to wash and dry the wet sheets. We had to turn the mattress over and flip it since the bottom of the mattress was also damp. We ended up sleeping directly on the mattress pad under a blanket and pillow stored in a closet. We lasted all the bedding out over furniture to dry Inver night. Not the best way to spend your first night in paradise.
The next day I called the owner and again he was very nice and apologetic. He gave me the combination to a closet with new sheets. We didn’t need them since the other sheets had dried.
I don’t know if he didn’t know what to do, but he offered to buy me a drink. They live in California. I said that would be hard. I indicated then that some consideration on our condo cost would be appropriate considering our considerable inconvenience suffered since entering the condo. He said he would discuss with his wife. Later he transferred a small amount to compensate our inconvenience.
While that amount was appreciated, I think an equivalent to one nights stay would have been more appropriate. I have owned and rented condos on VRBO before too, and I understand the challenge but it doesn’t take much to remedy challenges either they were the owners fault or not.
Again we had a wonderful time in Kauai and the view was spectacular from the condo, but we also left a bit disappointed.
This is our 2nd time staying at Surf Song & I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to book a stay.
Besides the incredible views that are mentioned in almost every comment, the condo is in a perfect location next to the Beach House Restaurant.
It is immaculately clean. I spent over 30 years working as an executive housekeeper in a high end resort area & know the challenges associated with it, but the housekeeping staff that I met here were extremely friendly & helpful even though they had very busy days. I only wish I remembered names so I could mention them here!
Walt was prompt to return our call & we had no issues during our stay.
The instructions to get into the condo were easy to follow even in the dark!
We are a retired couple & travel with our friends who are also in their 60’s. Both bedrooms were extremely comfortable.
The kitchen is well stocked & there is no better place to have morning coffee than on that lanai enjoying the gorgeous view. We are looking forward to our next stay!
It was so relaxing sitting on the lanai with beautiful ocean views, sunsets and stars. Close to great restaurants and just a very low key wonderful vacation. We enjoyed watching the turtles and surfers also. Look forward to returning as we love the area.
The view from the balcony and living room were spectacular! Sea turtles and surfers all day long made for great watching. The Shave Ice across the street was to die for. And the location was perfect to enjoy all that Maui has to offer.
Well, the surf was up and this is about the best place you could stay if you came to surf and enjoy the south side of the island.
Everything was smooth with the place. We had a really great memorable trip with my wife and our son and daughter. We will book this place again!
Awesome time ! Right in front of surf break - clean and had everything 😊😊
The view is amazing! 180 degrees of beachfront and honestly just steps away from the ocean. Lots of windows to make the front (living room and kitchen area) feel open and bright. The beds were so comfortable and the sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep.
We were in the area for a wedding at The Beach House, which is conveniently only a short walk from this condo. Easy to take walks, go to the beach, and eat! Shopping area w/ restaurants and Old Koloa Town were minutes away.
The owner (Walt) was very responsive when we had a question about a parking pass.
Our fourth trip to Surf Song and as always enjoyed the location, views, surfers, snorkeling, turtles and the weddings next door.
Thank you Walter until next time!
Cheers Greg & Connie
Everything was perfect as always.
Surf Song was a beautiful place to stay. The views were breathtaking from the lanai. There was everything there that you would need. There are many beaches close by many restaurants to pick from. Our favorites were The Dolphin and Table at Poipu located just off the roundabout.
We will be definitely back. The host were very helpful answering our questions prior to our arrival. Thank you for sharing your special place with us.
The condo was in a great location, well appointed, and beyond comfortable for our family of four. The view from the lanai never disappointed us given all there is to see between the rainbows, surfers, turtles, and just the ever changing surf. Everything was as expected and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Comfortable condo overlooking beautiful ocean! Had everything we needed. Comfy beds, all the kitchen supplies needed. Would stay here again and recommend to others. Clothing washer/dryer is communal and coin-operated.
There was something about this condo that made me never want to leave. It most likely was the view from the lanai and the sound of waves crashing all night. Amazing sunset views, short walks to the beach, great location if interested in driving to other parts of island. We had dinner at the Beach House right next store (highly recommend). The condo was well stocked with everything we needed and very clean. Before we left, I was already looking to see when there was availability in case we decide to come back to Kauai. I highly recommend!
We loved every minute! We were able to see turtles and surfers from the windows and lanai. We saw in the distance, whales, up to 3 at a time. Bring binoculars.
Nothing but good things to say. Great location, friendly owners, amazing views. It doesn't get any better than that!
if you like being close to the ocean, you can't get any closer than here. when you walk in, bang! there it is! Lavishly equipped kitchen, thoughtful lighting, convenient parking, truly next door to one of the finest restaurants on the island. really enjoyed our stay, hope to visit again!
Beautiful, well equipped home. Unbelievable views. You can’t get much closer to the ocean without getting wet. Watch for turtles and whales from the lanai or living room. Walk to snorkeling area. We can’t wait to go back.
Want to book again. No question. Again, owners so accessible and Walt and Joy helped us out of a sticky situation. Place very clean, light, airy and very well put together. Simple and elegant. A must experience!!!
What a wonderful property! As you step in the door, the entire Pacific Ocean greets you with an unobstructed view! The open concept living/dining/kitchen was perfect for our family of 4 adults. The kitchen had everything we needed, including coffee. Each bedroom was comfortable and both bathrooms were clean and functional. We highly recommend this condo and can’t wait to return!!!
The condo provides a 180 degree view of the ocean. The balcony is 50 feet from the surf. The condo itself is nicely furnished with an updated kitchen. The condo complex is small and each unit has some privacy. There is very little foot traffic in front of the condo and it is very quiet. This is the 4th time we have stayed here and we will be back.
Thank you Walt & Joy for having us at your beautiful unit! Everything about Surf Song was beautiful, windows all around, watching the surfers and sunset from bed, you cannot beat this view and location. Owners were responsive and accommodating and it's even better in-person. We loved our stay in Poipu and are so grateful to have found this rental. Hope to return one day very soon:)
xoxo Emily & Ian
This condo was spectacular! Great location for a variety of reasons including right on the corner of the building getting a close up view of a prime surfing spot. Owners very responsive, great communication, and a very clean spot with all the amenities that one needs! Absolutely will book again if available next time I'm in Kauai. Thank you!
We could not have been happier staying at Surf Song. It's the perfect location with quick access to amenities, and incredible views of the ocean and sunset. Everything was clean and very comfortable. Walt is one of the best hosts we've ever stayed with. Really hoping to make it back to Surf Song someday.
We loved this place! It was a great location to just relax. Every day we were able to watch the sunrise and sunset from our deck. It was fun to watch the surfers all day too! Everything in the unit was great!

The place was spotless, well stocked and the location was almost perfect. I say almost perfect because of environmental factors that the property has no control. Being next to Beachhouse Restaurant that caters to wedding and reception was initially nice. But then there were weddings every day and the party goes on until 10PM. The tent obstruct our sunset view.
We enjoyed watching the surfers, watching and listening to crushing waves, watched the turtles also surfing.
We had a grand stay and was really impressed and surprised the kitchen was well stocked and beach supplies are also provided. The fresh mango was a nice touch. If we come back to the island we will definitely stay here again.
The views from this unit are spectacular. We saw everything from sunsets to turtles right from the main living space. We found ourselves staying in more than we'd planned because there was always interesting sights passing by. The restaurant next door has erected a large white tent for events on the lawn immediately adjacent to the unit so part of the view was obstructed.
Loved the ocean view, great sunsets from the grass below the lanai, close to activities (snorkeling, surf school, hiking, shave ice, etc).
really enjoyed watching both the people activity and the animal (turtles and birds) from the lanai
The view of the ocean and rocky beachfront from the balcony and through the glass door/windows is very nice since the condo is a corner unit. We enjoyed the location with it being reasonably close to a number of activities we partook. Notwithstanding, the location is highly frequented by surfers and given the unit is next door to the Beach House restaurant, there were a number of spectators every afternoon and evening. This traffic flow detracted from the limited privacy the second floor unit might provide. On two of the four nights we stayed, the wedding reception next door at the Beach House with its music went past 11 p.m. In addition, no washer/dryer availability (we presume the washer and dryer are behind one of the owner-locked spaces/closets) was a minus.

From the moment we walked in the door, we knew we had picked a winner. The unit was pristine. Beautiful views, Spacious bedrooms, full kitchen and our favorite was the balcony. We spent many hours just sitting and watching the surfers and boogie borders. Just a short walk to snorkel or a short drive if one wants to discover new beaches. Joy and Walt were very easy to contact with any questions and both were very gracious. I highly recomend this property!
We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Kauai. Surf Song has amazing views, extremely comfortable beds & is convenient to shopping & dining. It does lack some privacy as sunset viewers & surfers hang out ocean front. They did provide a good deal of entertainment for us. So it all worked out. We’d definitely come back here if we can.
This is our fourth consecutive year to stay at Surf Song, and we tremendously enjoy each and every visit. We usually begin our Hawaiian vacations here in Kauai, because of the down-to-earth local experience. The location is unbeatable to watch local surfing talent in action. From sunrise to sundown, experienced surfers, including top talents like Brianna Cope, take to the waves right in front of the balcony. We love the view onto the surfers, parrots, and evening wedding parties. The building grounds and lawn are very well-maintained and nice for sunbathing, relaxing, or talking a walk around. The nearby cove also is a great place for snorkeling, with turtles, corals, and varied sea life. The kids love it! There is a really beautiful open-air shopping center within walking distance, which has a local farmers' market each week. We have seen Surf Song develop over the years, including many updates and nice touches added to the kitchen, bathrooms, and entry way. This year the property was exceptionally clean and tidy. The towels and linens were also of noticeably nice quality, which added to our vacation experience. Surf Song is a very welcoming, relaxing place for our family to find our Aloha spirit as we start our tour around the other islands. We are already looking forward to our return next year!
The house is literally overlooking the surf and you can hear it at night as you fall asleep. Gorgeous views and right next to a little snorkeling spot with great fish sightings. Super close to shopping and restaurants as well. Parrots flew in every night to say good evening.
It took my breath away when I walked into the condo!!! Beautiful corner unit, with amazing ocean views!!! Unit had everything you need and right next door to The Beach House Restuarant-a must do. I would definitely stay there again!!
It was as beautiful as the pictures show. It was nicely updated and had EVERYTHING we could possibly have needed. This was a great location in Poipu and we highly recommend it!
Our family loved this condo. The views were spectacular- people came from all over to sit on the lawn and nearby and we were here already. Surfers to watch from dawn to dusk including at least one professional surfer who we recognized. The manager was in touch both before and after we arrived to check on us. The unit was very clean and well-stocked and Law’ai beach was right around the corner. Great central location - so convenient to Spouting Horn and the botanical gardens and Poipu Beach. The unit even had some beach gear and various other things to make our stay even better. Definitely recommend
As pictured. Modern electronics. Dont park under the trees....the birds will remind you if you forget! Had a couple questions for owners but they were non responsive. Didnt affect our stay but communication sucked. It was hard to get parking pass because no one was in office. I would suggest they perhaps leave a pass inside unit to make it easier for guests. I would definitely stay here again.
Unit was literally 20 feet from the ocean in a beautiful location. Two bedrooms made it very comfortable for our family of four. Unit was very nicely decorated and comfortable and came with chairs, umbrellas, coolers, towels and a wagon for the beach. Overall, a wonderful place to stay!
Beautiful view of the surf and endless surfers
Ceiling fan in front bedroom was very noisy. Also, could have had a blow dryer in each bathroom as well as additional wine glasses to match,
This was a great local condo. We loved watching the surf and the surfers from the balcony.
We spent 8 days in this lovely condo in the Poipu area of Kauai. The great oceanfront views and nice furnishings made for a relaxing stay. This property is well maintained and very clean and the air conditioned bedrooms provided for very comfortable sleeping. The location made it convenient to area beaches and other points of interest. Management responded promptly to any questions/concerns. We would definitely stay here again.
This was our third stay at Surf Song and we enjoy it more each time. Everything was wonderful! The location is perfect, and the views are just fantastic. We watched whales each morning with our coffee, and watched sunsets in the evenings with our cocktails. Perfection AGAIN!
We enjoyed your condo very much. Updated & a beautiful place. Enjoyed the view immensely. The trek from the elevator to your condo was longer than anticipated carrying heavy luggage, but the overall experience was wonderful. The comments that I read about your comfortable beds were a major reason we selected your place. Your beds are very soft & super comfortable. Thank you!! Hope to return again sooner than later. One issue was management was difficult to find. We couldn't get our parking pass until late the second day. Thanks again!
We loved our stay at this property for a variety of reasons.
1. The location was perfect. Close to our activities whether we were heading east or west. Close to great restaurants. The best snorkeling we found was literally right outside the condo, and the hiking trails just about 2 miles away were absolutely breathtaking.
2. Being right on the ocean was so relaxing, whether that meant listening to the surf, or watching sea turtles and whales right from the comfort of the balcony. It doesn't get much better than watching a Kauai sunset from the comfort of your own balcony.
3. The condo itself met all of our needs. We found the kitchen equipped to meet all of our basic cooking needs and loved the Keurig for morning coffee. The condo easily accommodated the 4 of us and the air conditioned bedrooms weren't necessary for our stay due to the cooler evenings, but I would appreciate that if the weather had been warmer.
We'll definitely be looking for this location when we visit Kauai again.
Great experience staying here!!! My husband and I enjoyed every day...Even though it rained everyday and experienced a few storms.
The great thing is when the weather was not cooperating we could button down and enjoy the outdoors inside with this perfect prefect view.
We would highly recommend this unit to our friends and family.
Thank you Joy for making our expedience wondeful ... Patti & Chris
Right on the beach and short walking distance to shops and restaurants. Condo was well maintained and supplied everything needed for our stay and beach activities. Loved the view off the deck. I could sit there for hours and just listen to the ocean.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The thing I enjoyed most was sitting on the lanai starting pre-dawn having a cup of coffee. I would stay there and watch waves, surfers, and the occasional whale and turtle, it was awesome. The unit is very nice and clean. What you see in pictures is what you get.
I intend to return.
Only needed 1 bedroom but wanted to be close to the ocean, this place did not disappoint! Going to miss those amazing sunsets. Maholo Surf Song!
The panoramic view from this condo was absolutely breathtaking!!! Everyday we were treated to the relaxing waves, surfers, whales breaching in the distance, dolphins, and turtles. The sunsets were amazing and enjoying it with all the locals and tourists was an added bonus. The location was fabulous. The unit was comfortable, airy, and very cozy. The kitchen is newly updated and the ceiling fans and air conditioners made for a very comfortable stay. The unit is stocked with beach chairs, beach umbrella and boogie boards. There is a bbq which made making dinners very easy and more affordable than eating out every night. The people who manage this property are absolute gems and very attentive to all our needs. We will definitely be returning to this spot.
