Ready to relax to the sounds of the sea? Here is your amazing beachfront condo just steps to the water, located on the beautiful island of Kauai. This amazing oceanfront Kuhio Shores villa is located in Poipu on the south shore of Kauai. Our building is rare because It is one of the closest to the water units you can stay at in all of Hawaii! Our recently remodeled unit #116 is a ground floor unit which allows access to the beautiful lawn where you can sit in one of our three provided beach chairs, relax and enjoy the scenery from sunrise to sunset right off the lanai. We also have snorkel equipment and a short 2 minute walk from the lanai and you are at one of the best snorkeling beaches on Kauai. Our place has the standard appliances (including a refrigerator, new stove, and microwave), brand new K cup coffee maker with a handful of Cups to get you going. We also have a drip coffee machine if you prefer. BBQ area in the parking lot. We have new kitchen cabinets and quartz countertops, vinyl bamboo flooring, brand new sofa bed and living room chairs, and a private master bedroom with a California King mattress. AIR CONDITIONING is installed in the master bedroom only, which is nice on those hot summer nights. One thing we truly enjoy though are the tradewinds that blow through the windows and doors when they are open creating a comfortable flow through the villa and the sounds of the surf without AC. Picture yourself here with your favorite beverage watching the turtles, surfers, and colorful sunsets as hundreds of parrots fly over head every evening. PARADISE FOUND!
"Perfect Honeymoon Paradise
Kuhio Shores is a dream. It is absolute paradise and the perfect place for my husband and I to honeymoon. The condo is adorable, clean, and was well stocked with beach related items. The lanai was our favorite part and where we started and ended each day. We were able to see many turtles and dolphins in the mornings. If you’re looking to snorkel, this is also the perfect place to stay as the best snorkeling spot (in our opinion) on the island is just a short walk away to lawai beach."

Everything was perfect for our 25th wedding anniversary!

The location is great for snorkeling right outside the door in front of Beach House restaurant. Morning coffee on the deck was always pleasurable. Overall we enjoyed our stay and were grateful for a slightly later check out since our flight didn’t leave till 9:30 pm. The sofa bed wasn’t comfy so both my 2 teen/adult kids opted for the couch/twin air mattress. I think if listed for “4 people,” these sleeping accommodations need improvement. There were only enough blankets for 3 people. Luckily we had brought a small blanket for the plane so could make do. I would have appreciated basic toiletries like shampoo/conditioner, which seems the standard at VRBO/air bnb rentals, and an extra towel or two to get through our stay. Also maybe a drying rack-the rules state that you aren’t to hang things out on the deck but it’s the BEACH!!! Wet towels and bathing suits galore need somewhere to dry! These are just my suggestions. To end on a high note, we were really grateful to use the snorkeling gear, chairs, etc. These things enhanced the trip. Thank you!

This development is a hidden gem in Poipu. Surfing was great and the sunsets were incredible. The unit has everything you need to settle in and enjoy. The host, Tyler, was incredibly helpful and nice - we had a logistical hiccup with dates and he was kind enough to delay some scheduled maintenance at the unit to accomodate us for an additional night. Whew! We'll be back...

This condo was just as great as I was expecting it to be. The view was amazing, I got sunrise to the left and sunset to the right. Absolutely incredible location, close to the beach and shops. Such a modern place with everything you could possibly need. Loved this place and will return to stay here our next visit. Great communication with Tyler also Thank you for a great trip

Excellent location, didn't miss the amenities of a pool, etc. Condo with full kitchen, snorkeling gear, coolers, beach chairs, and walk right out from ground floor lanai to grass and ocean. Safe location. Wonderful views. Will stay again if ever in Kauai!

We absolutely loved our stay at this location! It is one of my favorite spots on Kauai. The condo is stocked with everything you need - including snorkeling gear! We woke up each morning having coffee on the lanai watching the turtles swim. BEST sunset on the island as well. I will look to book this place each time we visit :)

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary here and it was perfect! The view was incredible. The sunset was right out of the patio on the right. The location was perfect for walking to the stores. There were beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and snorkel gear available. Thank you!

October 2023
This condo was the perfect location for our Kauai vacation. Nearby restaurants and shops, but also quiet and private. Could not get closer to ocean. View is impeccable. Loved sunset here.

Great relaxing vacation. Nothing better than sitting on your lanai listing to the sound of the waves and watching surfers. Also could see turtles in the water close to rocky shore. Condo had everything we needed for a weeks stay in paradise!

Beautiful place. Great location. Love the modern decor. Hoping for better kitchen wares like dishes, utensils, pots and pans since we love to cook. But we definitely will come back to this condo. Tyler was awesome.

We enjoyed our stay at Tyler's condo at Kuhio Shores. The beach equipment was great and my son enjoyed the guitar. We spent a lot of time on the patio, both day and night. The A/C was great to have in the bedroom and we moved the tower fan to the bathroom when we took showers for more airflow. My son said that as soon as he walked in, he knew it was going to be a great week. (and it was!)

This property was exactly as advertised. I was looking for somewhere safe and quiet where I could enjoy a much needed vacation. The ocean views were beautiful. I was able to do everything that I wanted to do and relax as well.

This condo has it all…an incredible view with a walkout patio, next door to fabulous dining and all the comforts of home. Highly recommend this property!

This ground floor condo is in a great spot, and treated us to a real show out the sliding glass door: beautiful water, an active surf break, and sea turtles galore. Incredibly short walk to Lawai Beach next door to the west with great snorkeling, and several other lovely beaches within minutes on foot or by car. There's shopping and dining nearby within a short walk or car ride as well. Keypad entry made coming and going easy and didn't put us at risk of losing the keys at the beach. The place was clean on arrival, and the expectations for how you leave it are totally reasonable as well. There are some minor fit and finish issues here and there around the unit as one would expect in a lived-in home; to be clear, this didn't bother me in the slightest given the great value for the location and amenities, just something I noticed. We had everything we needed close at hand to cook, and made good use of the chairs, snorkel gear and beach towels. There's not a big grocery store super close, so if you're planning on eating in or packing lunches, consider stopping for groceries on the way from the airport; that said, there's smaller markets nearby for convenience. On that note, there's no pantry per-se, but we just used the top of the fridge and one end of the counter and got by just fine, and we cooked quite a bit. Overall the 5-star ratings are well deserved. Nowhere is going to be all things to all people, but this came pretty close to perfect for the two of us! Thanks!

This was a beautiful property with everything you need. The hosts were very accommodating and provided us with a full length mirror and champagne glasses that we requested. Location was really good. Our favourite part was the patio with the ocean front view. It was super quiet and relaxing. The only downfall for this property is that there is only AC in the bedroom and not in the main living space. But otherwise, I would definitely stay here again.

The view from this property is absolutely spectacular! We were disappointed in the fact it was not as clean as it should have been and there is mildew on the outdoor furniture which made it unusable. The towels were very thin and the sheets had holes in them.

The property is lovely, even better than we had hoped. Everything is beautifully decorated and there are lots of amenities in the unit. It also has a closet full of beach gear that you can borrow (chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, etc). Our favorite part was probably sitting on the lanai watching the surfers every morning and the sunset at night. I would definitely stay here again!

We loved our stay and would definitely stay here again. It was just my wife and I and this was the perfect place for a couples. Beautiful sunsets right out the back door. Surfers from morning till sunset every night. Great proximity to many activities and restaurants. The property was clean, smells good, and had everything we needed for our stay. It has been remodeled within the last few years and everything worked.

Great location and easy access to lawn to enjoy sunsets and watch surfers. Very short walk to excellent snorkeling. Would have appreciated a little more island decorating inside. Tyler was very quick to acknowledge that some of the outdoor furniture needed to be replaced.

Amazing property in an amazing location. Tyler was wonderful about the communication throughout the entire process. His condo was clean, modern and everything we expected. It was like a second home to us and we were truly sad to leave it! We will definitely book the same property the next time we return to Kauai! If you are looking at this property, don't hesitate to book!

Tyler was extremely prompt and informative and provided great recommendations. The condo was perfect. The location was amazing. The ocean was within feet on the lanai. We watched the sea turtles swim by daily. Great snorkeling at the beaches right by the condo. We walked to restaurants and local stores. I highly recommend booking this condo!

This was our second time in Kaua'i, and this condo was a great spot, right on the water. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular from the porch, which is has a love seat and small table and chairs, and, we enjoyed many happy hour sunsets there. The condo has comfortable bed, bathroom and shower with excellent water pressure, fully equipped kitchen and a sofa as well as two excellent chairs for reading. Tyler is very easy to work with and helpful. We'll be back!

The communication with Tyler was amazing. He answered all the questions we had. Tyler’s place is exactly as described. It was clean and very comfortable. The view is amazing, you can see the sunrise in the morning and the sunsets at night are stunning. The kitchen comes with everything you need, and there are bbq’s a short walk from the condo, which we used nightly!!! The bed is super comfortable and makes for a great nights sleep! There is air conditioning in the bedroom, but I will warn you it’s loud, as it drains, scared the crap out of us the first night! The beaches are close, and there’s a lot of them, so you have your pick. The spouting horn is just up the road, definitely check it out! If you up for a early morning run, it’s safe to run on the road, and from the condo, past the spouting horn to the dead end road and back is 6km’s and you will sweat at 7am!!! There are beach chairs and an umbrella in the closet, along with snorkel gear, but no cooler, so we just went to the abc and bought a soft one for the beach ($15). There are ice packs in the freezer (awesome)!! We would definitely recommend Tyler’s place, and we would definitely stay here again!!! Thanks Tyler for making the start of our trip awesome!!!!

Hesitant to review because I want to keep this gem to myself but what a spectacular apartment right on the water with views of the amazing sunset. Our baby loved playing on the lawn while we sat on the lanai and watched surfers in the morning. Short distance from everything you may want to see on the South Island and relatively quick to get all around the island otherwise. We loved coming back here after our daily adventures to unwind. Modern decor with surfer vibes, all beach necessities provided (chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, beach toys, boogie board). Will definitely recommend and use this apartment again when we return.

Wonderful comfortable oceanside location facing south so you can enjoy the sunrise and sunset while still having a shaded patio. Snorkel gear was in great shape plus beach chairs, cooler, and beach towels. Binoculars were a great addition to watch the surfers and sea turtles and boats close up. Everything was easy and Tyler texted us soon after our arrival to make sure we were all set.

Dustan B.

The location, proximity to the water, layout, furnishing, and decor of this place were absolutely wonderful. Hearing the waves every night with the windows propped open. The AC in the master bedroom made sleeping every night super comfortable and being just 20 ft from the water was perfect. Surfers jump in at the edge of the rocks and you can watch the sunrise and sunset without even leaving the patio area. Really just a great place.

Nothing is better than waking up and falling asleep steps from the ocean. It truly doesn’t get better than this. I’ve traveled all around the world and stayed in many places …. Trust me when I say, book it. It literally feels like the ocean is part of your living room and some of the best snorkeling is just steps away. We will be back as 8 nights was just not enough.

This place is incredible. The ocean is literally steps away from the patio, the place is quiet, and it is completely remodeled. The location is perfect as well.. you really couldn’t ask for more.

We stayed here for 5 nights during our Kauai honeymoon and wish we would have stayed for our entire vacation. It does not get better than this property and the host, Tyler. He was extremely communicative and offered us great recommendations. We enjoyed every morning on the lanai watching the turtles swimming around, it was truly beautiful and relaxing. The sunrise and sunsets from this property are unbeatable. Can’t wait to come back some day.

My husband and I recently stayed at this property and I can't BEGIN to tell you how amazing it is. The view is spectacular - we watched the surfers and turles everyday for hours! The house has a little lanai and is equipped with an outdoor table /chairs and beach chairs to watch the sunset while you dine or sip a glass of wine. Or you can walk (literally steps) to a beautiful restaurant called the The Beach House. The condo was spotlessly clean, provided everything you needed for a lovely trip - like snorkel stuff, beach towels etc. and the host was a pleasure to deal with. The condo is perfect for a romantic trip for two. It would be fine for families with small kids, but I wouldn't recommend 4 adults - it would be a bit tight! We could have stayed for much longer and will ONLY stay here if we come back. Thank you Tyler for a truly memorable trip!

The condo was the perfect location! We had a fantastic view of the ocean, which was right outside the lanai. The kitchen was perfect for making food, if we didn't feel like eating out. The a/c kept the bedroom comfortable at night. Tyler was always quick to respond. We will definitely go back!

Tyler's place is amazing. The location is unbeatable - on the beach, next door to a great restaurant, private. The ground floor allows for easy access to the patio and yard. We really loved the AC, comfortable bed, and the view. The place is clean, updated, and modern. Tyler was an excellent host. He was really responsive and went above and beyond with communication prior to arrival. We felt very welcome. We would 100% stay here again. Thanks Tyler!

An excellent place to stay in Poipu. It is particularly wonderful to watch the Honu and spectacular sunsets from the patio. Definitely want to return to Kuhio shores. Property manager very responsive.

If I could give this 100 stars I would. I don't think it is possible to find a better unit in Kauai. The condo is spotless and perfect. Total attention to detail, from the decorating to the items needed for your stay. Wall to wall windows with a stunning view. You will not want to get out of the waterfall shower other than wanting to get out and see the awesome views. To hear the waves crash on the rocks 24/7 is amazing. You can snorkel with the turtles right off the unit because you are literally 15 steps from the water. I would recommend an under water camera because there are tons of turtles and beautiful fish. Drinking coffee while watching the surfers, waves, turtles, and then beautiful rainbows...what else can you ask for? We went to Oahu to get married and then to Kauai for our honeymoon. Absolutely perfect trip! We will be back! Jeremy & Jen ♥

Clean, comfortable, updated condo with everything you need. Unbelievable views from inside, but the outdoor space and access is unbeatable on the south. Honus swimming right out front, watching the surfers, gorgeous sunsets, and snorkeling spots on either side of the building. This will always be our spot on the south from here on out!

I am feeling conflicted writing this review, because I want to keep this place as much of a secret as possible. But I do know the right thing to do is to tell everybody how amazing this place truly is. Starting with the property manager Tyler, being so easy to get a hold of, talk to, ask questions or just gain knowledge about the area. Tyler made the check in process so easy and his knowledge of the area was super helpful. Most of the other units I noticed were outdated in style and furniture. Not this unit. Very modern and up to date. The bed is super super comfortable and for once I liked a bed more then my own at home. What really sets this place apart above anywhere else on the island is that I truly believe the location is better than anything else you’ll see. Right outside of your patio door is one of the best local surf spots on the island. This break has surfers on it from sunrise to sunset and it truly is an awesome place to surf or just watch. Along with the surf is a teaming amount of fish and other wildlife in the ocean just in front of the condo. Every morning I would snorkel right off the patio and be surrounded by multiple turtles and tropical fish. Along with all of this to top it off is the sunset view. People pay money nightly to go to the Beach House restaurant next door to have drinks and watch the sunset. Nothing beats having your own drinks on your own private lanai and watching the sunset with your significant other. Unreal the views you get from here. You are also centrally located to many very good local restaurants in the area as well as shops and grocery stores. I could seriously go on and on and on about this place. I’m not exaggerating when I say we fell in love with unit 116 and hope to save up and come back to Kauai and stay here again one day.

We had a great week long stay with our 2 year old and 5 month old. We would definitely return. Being so close to the ocean helped when we had to go back to the condo for naps, made us feel like we were not missing out on vacay time while the kids were asleep. Had we been in a hotel or something it would have been a drag. Lots of sea turtles in the ocean and The Beach House is within a few yards and they have awesome happy hour everyday with live music which our son loved. Tyler was very helpful and responsive before our arrival and during our stay.

Eric G.
October 2019
We had a great stay at Tyler's place. Everything was as advertised. Well-stocked kitchen and a closet full of handy beach gear (chairs, coolers, snorkels, and more). You couldn't be closer to the ocean, which is both good and bad. If you're looking for privacy, having your neighbors walking around right outside your back window might be a little off-putting. We got used to it and found it a fair trade for the unreal sea turtle watching. I was doing dishes one day, and swear I saw a turtle waving at me from inside a wave. And if you like surfing, you can be in the water in less than 60 seconds out the back door. We would definitely stay here again.

Overall, great place for the cost. Beautiful sunset views and right around the corner from The Beach House and Lawaii beach which has some amazing snorkeling. New kitchen and bathroom were beautiful. My only complaints would be that the AC in the bedroom doesn’t do much for the rest of the unit and it’s south facing so it would get quite warm. There was also some loud noises when neighbors would use the plumbing. Also worth noting that the laundry isn’t in the unit - shared coin operated which we still sued without any problem Otherwise, great little place to spend some time in Kauai with beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. Would recommend!

Location amazing - surf and snorkeling right there.. walk to shops in 10 min, Mai tai at the Beachouse in 2. Spent most hours on lanai enjoying view and reading.
