The listing was accurate and extremely detailed. Kuhio Shores condos are in an ideal location. The grounds are well kept, and the sunrise and sunset views were spectacular. The condo is beautifully furnished with a tropical theme and a lovely collection of artwork. The hosts have thought of everything a visitor might need or desire including a chilled bottle of champagne, binoculars, beach chairs, coolers, beach towels, and scuba gear. The kitchen is well appointed and the split system air conditioner was a huge bonus. The owners and the property exceeded our 5 star expectations. We look forward to returning.
We loved this place. The owners take great care and pride in making the condo comfortable and well appointed, are easy to communicate with, and delivered on everything they committed to in their listing. Our visit exceeded our expectations. The unit is very comfortable and soooo close to the ocean. We stayed for a week in August and used the condo as our home base while enjoying the many diverse facets and activities all over Kauai. The snorkeling just to the west of the building was captivating… fish of all types, swimming green sea turtles every time we went out, and even a moray eel. And it was so close to the unit with an outdoor shower and foot rinse to keep the beach sand outside. It’s a short walk to a number of great restaurants and a 2 mile drive to the Poipu Beach Club whose membership was included – very cool. Safety and Security…. Parking was super close, the keyless entry worked like a charm and was convenient, and the in-room safe was helpful and allowed us to focus on enjoying versus worrying. While we did venture to the west side of the building to enjoy sunsets and locals surfing, we spent a lot of time in our unit mesmerized by the ocean waves from the living room, kitchen and outdoor lanai. So relaxing. And, from our perspective, the ground floor is the best – the ability to simply walk out the sliding door with your coffee in the morning to the rocky edge of the ocean in a matter of a few yards can’t be beat!
Karen and Dave did an outstanding job on having everything you will need to enjoy your stay at their unit. The unit felt very comfortable and relaxing and the location was perfect. The views from the lanai and around the property were beautiful. Big Mahalo to Karen and Dave for being so organized, professional and friendly.
The property was very clean ! We were welcomed with chilled champagne and glasses in the refrigerator when we arrived .
Lovely air conditioning!
Beautiful location to beach access and restaurant.
Close to shopping and Lapperts ice cream 💫
We would return again … thank you !
This is our third time and it was fabulous, as always. Highly recommend!
Thank you Karen and Dave for welcoming us into your home. Mahalo. Mark and Patti
We had a fantastic time, The condo was perfect for the two of us and the king size bed was amazing.
We saw so many turtles right from the patio.
The only reason I gave it four stars was because of all the foot traffic going by. That took some getting used to.
Btw, Albert was so amazing, so helpful and kind!!
We enjoyed our stay at Kuhio Shores 105. The condo was equipped with everything we needed. The Kitchen has plenty of cookware and utensils. The bedroom is comfortable with AC. The bed is a little soft, but that is a personal thing. We still slept fine. We enjoyed morning coffee on the lanai. The turtles are fun to watch. We loved watching people gather to watch the surfers and sunset. Very pleasant and relaxing. The owners were accommodating and responded quickly to emails. Very good experience.
We stayed for a total of 10 days. Dave and Karen were the best, easy communication. The condo itself was clean and stocked with everything one would need. We very much enjoyed our stay and will be returning.
Amazing! We can’t wait to go back!
This was a perfect place for us. The location was great. We greatly enjoyed sitting on the lanai to watch the sunrise and to see the ocean & the sky during day & evening. The property was clean, well furnished and comfortably stocked with what we needed. The property owner was very responsive to questions.
Lovely condo. Convenient to beaches.
This unit is even better in person. Yes, the location and view are outstanding, but the customer service offered by the owners is truly superior. You'll find added extras that come in handy like snorkeling gear, beach chairs & towels, beach umbrella, cooler, laundry soap, tour guidebooks, and cooking spices. They've thought of everything! We had a minor maintenance issue and they were on it within minutes. Don't hesitate. Book this place!
Great stay! Prime location on the ocean in a quiet neighborhood. The unit was beautifully decorated with great Hawaiian art. The beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels and toys were greatly appreciated.
This was a very lovely location with the ocean right outside the patio. The snorkeling was better here than on the paid tour we did! Note to other travelers, if you go snorkeling, go to the other side of the complex. The side this unit is on is a bit rocky and we fell and cut ourselves up. The other side has a nice beach to easily walk in. If you want to eat at the restaurant on the other side of the complex, make reservations before you go. They were booked by the time we got there. It is walkable to the local shopping mall, but without sidewalks it is a little sketchy. We chose to drive everywhere but it was close to everything. The only negative we had was the toilet paper. It was single ply and made that part of the trip unpleasant. Just felt that this was a simple upgrade that would have made the trip better and thought I would mention it for the owners for the future. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this place and would stay again.
We arrived at Karen and David’s condo to find it very well cleaned (very important to us!) and supplied. The unit had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable.
We loved the keyless front door entry. The calming view of Hanakaape Bay was perfect. The unit windows face south so we grabbed the patio chairs and walked out the sliding glass door to view the sunsets around the corner of the building. We rarely used the AC and instead used the tower fans (3) to cool us down. The AC in both the living room and bedrooms are whisper quiet. We appreciated how comfortable the two chairs in the living room were and how we could watch the huge wall TV and still look out onto the bay. The king bed was super comfortable and we had no problems adjusting and slept well every night. There were 4 Tommy Bahama chairs, 2 coolers, an umbrella, boogie boards, and ice packs in the freezer for beach days. The kitchen was well-stocked and had both a Mr. Coffee and Keurig coffee machines (I left filters for the Mr. Coffee machine). The unit had extra toilet paper, paper towels, plastic wrap/bags, shampoo/conditioner/body soap, and much more. The bathroom towels were plush and not scratchy. We liked the extra little amenities like a power strip in the bedroom, nightlight in the bathroom, dimming lights in the kitchen, and welcome surprise in the fridge (which we did not imbibe in 😊).
The unit location was perfect. We walked to The Beach House around the corner of the building for a beautiful sunset dinner. One day we drove up to Waimea Canyon for the fantastic scenic overlooks. On another day, we drove north to the end of the road and enjoyed Haena Beach and the popular stops all along the way. The Poipu area was more our speed than the busier Princeville area so we felt we picked the perfect location and unit for our stay.
Location is ideal to get to the beach and restaurants . Very clean property that put me at ease. Enjoying my morning coffee while listening to the waves was really serene and relaxing . Comfy bed was a big plus.
Nice stay in a great location! Condo's ground floor view overlooks a nice spot where the sea turtles like to hang out. It's very clean and well stocked for a comfortable stay with good beach chairs, beach towels, wine glasses, dishes, foil, etc. Enjoy!
We had a great time. The condo was in great condition. The view and location were even better. We have stayed in Kuhio Shores several times, and this will not be out last time. Can't wait to come back. Our host's Karen and Dave were easy to communicate with and a pleasure to work with.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Kuhio Shores. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Peaceful and relaxing.
This condo has the most amazing view of the ocean. There was a turtle next to us the whole time. The condo is situated in a popular resort town, with a ton of restaurants. Had a blast and would like to stay there again in the future. No
Very clean, comfortable, well decorated. Everything needed was there. Great central location with wonderful restaurant next door. The beach house restaurant with spectacular sunset views was a treat.
Everything about our stay in Kuhio Shores #105 was perfect. From initial contact with the owners, check in/out process, and the gorgeous unit itself, everything was perfect. Owners are so friendly and welcoming and have thought of everything to make your stay here the best it can be. Everything you need for a beach visit is right in the closet: beach chairs, snorkel equipment, umbrella, boogie boards, and coolers. The kitchen is also equipped with everything you need to cook meals right in the condo to enjoy on the beautiful lanai. The bathroom looks to have been recently updated as it has a beautiful shower and updated look. Nice thick bath towels and beach towels are provided as well. The bedroom has ample storage with closet space and lots of drawer space. We had more than enough room for our 10 night stay.
The unit has air conditioners in both the living room and the bedroom which is a nice touch. We mostly enjoyed just having the lanai door and bedroom windows open to enjoy the amazing Hawaii weather and trade winds blowing through but if you have a hot afternoon where the breeze isn't blowing as much it is nice to close everything up and cool the unit down.
Check in process is so easy which we appreciated after a very long day of flying to get to Kauai. Just punch the code into the lock and you are in!
We also enjoyed access to the Poipu athletic club just down the road. Made a nice spot to spend an afternoon at the beautiful pool and have some poolside drinks.
The highlight of this place though is the location and the view from the lanai. You can't really appreciate it fully until you see it in person. This is our second stay at Kuhio Shores and the ground floor units absolutely cannot be beat for the view and location. We spent every morning enjoying coffee on the lanai watching the sun come up and most evenings we would walk around the corner with drinks and watch the sunset. This is the same sunset view that you get when you have dinner at The Beach House but staying in this unit you get to enjoy it every single night. Just amazing. Thank you Karen and Dave for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. We hope to return soon!
We were pleasantly surprised how quiet it was at Kuhio Shores. We hardly ever heard anyone outside and never heard anyone above us. With the unit being on the ground floor we thought we’d hear the people above us, but we never did. Quiet time is 9:00pm until 6:59am.That goes for laundry rooms too. That was the only inconvenience we had was that we couldn’t do our laundry after 9pm. The condo is close to a lot of shops and restaurants, so it made it very convenient for us. I’d definitely stay here again.
Great property, with an amazing location with beautiful view. Clean with everything you need for a wonderful vacation.
We had a wonderful time at this waterfront condo. Loved being able to watch the waves any time of day! Great location near beaches, restaurants, ice cream, hikes, and more!
This rental is amazing. The inside is up-to-date, clean, and pleasantly decorated. The location is outstanding. This is our second stay in this condo and we have already booked our next one. Highly recommend!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed watching sea turtles and lots of surfers enjoying the high surf. The condo is well equipped, very comfortable and super-responsive hosts.
Great location for exploring beaches and the island. Condo was clean and well equipped. Our hosts made everything easy and were so kind when we almost had to cancel the day before our trip due to an illness in my family. Thank you!
I work in the vacation rental industry in California, so I am finicky, and I know a great deal when I see one! It’s very hard to find nice, affordable oceanfront accommodations anywhere but this fits the bill. The condo was nicely stocked, with everything we needed including beach chairs, cooler, beach umbrella and even snorkeling gear. The building itself is very clean and well maintained, and in a great location, close to beaches, restaurants and shopping. My husband was particularly impressed with all the electric outlets that were provided, and he enjoyed the binoculars as well.
Above all else, the ground level Lanai was heaven. To be able to walk outside and enjoy our morning coffee while listening to the waves crash, and enjoy our evening wine while watching the sea turtles and surfers was nothing short of heavenly. We are sad to be leaving this little slice of paradise.
I would recommend this condo to anyone wanting to visit Poipu, and I would definitely come back again.
Thank you for a relaxing, memorable stay. It was just what we needed!
Floors dirty, rug in hallway muddy, bed had extensive urine stained mattress pad we discovered at the end of our stay. This property is unworthy to be a VRBO listing.
Very clean and everything you’ll need. Great location
This is a stunning apartment with a gorgeous view. The property is clean and very well cared for, it’s in a great location with easy access to different beaches and shops. It is well stocked with kitchen and beach supplies. I would love to stay here again!
Condo was everything as described. Loved the crashing waves, sea turtles and breaching whales all from the patio. Definitely would stay here again.
Great location. Turtles within 100' of your lanai. Walking distance to one of the best snorkeling beaches on the island. AC units worked the best of any of the places we have stayed.
I loved this condo on the side of the building . It was very clean and comfortable. We walked out to the blow hole at the end of the road.
The little Bay was beautiful to lookout the window and to sit outside listening to the waves. Very close to restaurants and stores. A ttt
Great location, very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay.
I loved this location. The views are amazing!
Perfect place near restaurants, beach and beautiful sunsets. The owners could jot have been better hosts. Communicated well and make sure we had verything we needed for our stay. The condo was emmaculate and with comfortable furniture and beautiful art pictures. Would definitely stay here again.
This condo was perfect for our vacation! The best view, complete kitchen, and comfortable bed. Walking distance to the beach. Long walk or quick drive to restaurants and shopping. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
We just returned from our honeymoon and we’re beyond pleased with the accommodations. It had everything we needed and more. The condo was aesthetically pleasing and the view was out of this world! We saw turtles swimming up to the waters edge everyday. It was a perfect place to start and end our day. We would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend it.
Great condo, great location
Everything we could have wanted and more. Short walks/drives to anywhere on the island, and Karen/Dave were fantastic with their communication. They answered all of our questions in a timely manner and didn’t seem bothered at all to offer any assistance. Would 10/10 recommend their Kuhio Shores condo for any length of stay (my wife and I were here for a week.) thanks for making our trip to Kauai a memorable one!
We stayed here for the first half of our trip to Kauai and absolutely loved it! It's quaint, unpretentious, spacious, and quite charming. And that's before you open the curtains to be mere steps away from the beautiful black lava coastline. A stunning view with a patio area that is great snacking, yoga, getting a massage, or watching the sunrise. A great value and a perfect place to stay while we explored the south and west coast of the island! Highly recommended!
The condo had everything we needed. The view of the ocean is beautiful
This property is perfect! The location is unbelievable, we have already made plans to return. Thank you for everything!
Exactly as pictures listed. Good communication from owner. Enjoyed our stay!
Well appointed ocean front condo in a wonderful location. Sitting on the lanai watching and listening to the waves was our favorite part of the day. The sunsets are breathtaking just steps from the lanai. We will be back!
