A friend and I stayed for a week in this fabulous condo. Sitting out on the patio in the morning with a cup of coffee was the most relaxing, enjoyable, beautiful thing I’ve done in years. We didn’t want to come home!
We enjoyed our Kauai vacation very much! Neither of us had been to Kauai before, and the "Garden Isle" perfectly describes the island. Beautiful! Our ground floor condo was mostly good and the grounds well-tended, though there were both pros and cons to the overall experience. The pros: the waterfront setting was wonderful. Waking up to the sunrise on the cove was special. Beaches and shopping nearby. The space was adequate for our needs, and the online photos were accurate. The cons: While there were ceiling fans over the bed and the dining table, there was no AC, and I didn't think to ask about it. Mostly it was fine, just a little stuffy/humid when coming in from the day's adventures. Not all of the condos in the complex have AC, so not necessarily unusual. Unfortunately, one big negative was that there was a bug problem . . . cockroaches, to be exact. I let the owner know right away, and they quickly responded to the problem, which we very much appreciated, but it did impact our overall experience. Our travel buddies stayed on another floor of the complex and were satisfied.
The condo is Wonderful…the listing of the condo & amenities are spot on!
The bed & the sheets are so comfortable. There is a public walk way in front of the condo, but there is not a lot of foot traffic.
We loved our stay & would return.
If you are interested in an amazing beach ride on horseback check out CJM STABLES a few miles down the road. Private rides are great for more experienced riders & those wanting a more one on one experience.
Koloa Fish Market for Poke & Plate Lunch very good. Koloa Juice Bar for Healthy Juice & Kombucha…they will be adding more to the menu soon.
Great location with beautiful ocean and sunset views. Condo is comfortable and well equipped. Owner is very helpful.
Great location and overall nice property but the propery need some repairs and updating.
This was my husband and I’s first time to Kauai, and our rental choice at Kuhio Shores was above & beyond perfect. The description of the condo was extremely accurate which included many helpful amenities & surrounding attractions. The owner was extremely kind & very attentive with making sure everything was top-notch. We will definitely book the same location again in the future due to the hospitality & attention to detail. Mahalo!
Plus…location is the best for the sun. By noon the lanai is shaded. First floor was the best. We could walk out and watch surfers, etc. lots of guide books, chairs, umbrella and boogie board.
Con…the unit needs an update. It’s pretty dated. No air conditioning made it warm inside.
The location made it a wonderful base.
We had such a. Wonderful time staying at the condo. We celebrated our honeymoon in the perfect place. The view is spectacular and it is a nice quiet place. We will definitely book with Noel again.
To top it off, our flight didn’t leave until late in the evening. Noel was kind enough to give us a late checkout time.
You will not be sorry you booked this condo!
Great location on the water. Quiet complex. Close to surfing, beaches, snorkeling etc. perfect for a couple and we would definitely rent again. Thanks much!
Really great property with so many extras . Property has beach towels , chairs , coolers , cooking items and spices . We loved our stay here . You can see and hear the ocean at this property .Beach for snorkeling was very close and so were many shops and restaurants We loved staying here . Noel was very kind and very easy to communicate with … after we left and checked into our next rental on the other side of island my wife and I both said how we wanted to go back to Noel’s condo .. defiantly rent this place you won’t be sorry it was truly wonderful ! We can’t wait to stay here again in the future .
We have been traveling to Kauai for over 50 years now but have never rented at this location. We enjoyed the condo and grass outside this ground floor unit, which had perfect sun in morning and shade in afternoon. The only major negative is no pool, which every other complex of this size seems to have. That was assumed by us and should be clarified in listing . Also every unit we have ever rented or owned has had a washer and dryer in the unit. The ones here are in the main complex and are coin operated, which is inconvenient. Other than these concerns it is clean and in a gorgeous setting over a private cove which is ideal for scenery and snorkeling.
You'll notice right away here that you're renting from the owners, not an indifferent management company. Exceptional communication throughout, never intrusive.
Basics: unit was super clean, excellent kitchen supplies. Normal wear and tear -- be sure to tell Noel about any issues so he can address them.
Location: #103 is the third unit from the road. Most importantly it is beyond the large hedge which obstructs the views of #101 and 102. This unit looks east across the small bay in front of Prince Kuhio park, down to the edge of Baby Beach. We liked being on the ground floor, able to walk directly out onto the grass.
Snorkelers have told me there is good snorkeling right in this bay, but entry/exit is over rocks. We walked the very short distance to adjacent Lawa'i Beach by the Beach House which also has good snorkeling and much easier entry/exit.
This is a wonderful part of the Poipu/Koloa coast, much quieter than Poipu Beach but still in walking distance.
It was in a great location to see everything we wanted. The condo is quiet and perfect for my wife and I. The patio was 20’ from the water in its own cove. Like it’s own slice of Heaven. We have been to several Islands but our first time to Kauai, it’s definitely our favorite.I don’t do a lot of reviews and there’s always something someone can complain about. But this was exactly what we wanted in a vacation.
Very nicely appointed unit. Could have been a little cleaner for our liking. Roan noise can be a little annoying
We loved our stay here! The location was perfect. You can snorkel and surf right off the property. It was so nice having a kitchen on Kauai because it wasn’t always easy getting into restaurants. Absolutely the best honeymoon spot we could have asked for.
Loved the location. Place was stocked with all necessary utensils.
Perfect location, perfect view! Kitchen well stocked. Everything very clean. We had a great stay!
Great, affordable location right in the water. This place has all the amenities, dishes, towels, beach chairs/toys that you need.
Be advised there is no air conditioning, so evenings can be warm.
Perfect spot right on the beach that had everything we could possibly need to cook, go to the beach, or enjoy a night watching the waves. Plenty of fans to keep us cool since I was prepared knowing that places on the island do not have AC which is not a problem as the winds and fans kept us cool. The king bed was amazing. Thank you for a wonderful week in paradise.
Great location, and the most fully stocked condo we’ve ever stayed at.
