About the property

Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Welcome to Our Pacific Paradise where you can relax in our Kuhio Shores oceanfront condominium on one of the most beautiful and tranquil sea shores in the world - the Poipu Beach area on the sunny south side of Kauai. Few condominiums are built on the waters edge in Kauai, but Kuhio Shores condominiums are surrounded by ocean waters. It is about as close as you can get to the beautiful pacific ocean. Enjoy a relaxing dinner as you look out on the beautiful blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, where you are less than 80 feet from the rolling waves. Enjoy our oceanfront dwelling where the morning sun flows through the windows as you look out onto the ocean's breaking waves. From your private lanai, ocean and mountain views flood your sight and sea turtles appear among the rocks. Whales breach the ocean surface in season (winter months).

Beautiful island, steamy condo

  • 3 of 5

The condo is clean and well supplied with many amenities which was much appreciated. The island of Kauai is paradise on earth. Sooo beautiful. We truly enjoyed our days exploring the gorgeous views and gardens. Our one problem with the condo, which for us was major, was the lack of air conditioning in the unit. During our visit, the temperatures were 85-95 degrees with 90% humidity. It was extremely hot in the condo day and night making sleep a challenge. We appreciated the 3 box fans provided, but still spent as little time as possible in our home away from home. It was my mistake to assume that a rental in the tropics would have air conditioning. :/

Amazing condo right on the water!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this condo for six nights of our honeymoon. The condo was well stocked with kitchen supplies and beach gear. We could not have asked for a better place to spend this time. The lanai was amazing, and the turtle watching was unbeatable. We snorkeled with turtles in the small bay in front of the condo and then again in front of the Beach House restaurant around the building. It was amazing and we would not hesitate to recommend this condo to anyone we know! Thank you, Jackie for being so welcoming and making our travels worry-free and wonderful!!

Relaxation on the Water

  • 5 of 5

The condo is, simply put, perfect. It's private and secure; has parking; is fully-furnished with modern conveniences of cable and WiFi, not to mention beach gear such as boogie boards, water shoes and snorkel equipment; and, it is on the water. We could see the sea turtles from the coach and practically taste the salt water. This really is a pacific paradise, and the proximity of the local shops - restaurants, bars, markets and boutiques - makes an extended stay very, very enjoyable.

Wonderful vacation in a well thought out condo

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a perfect location, close to everything and on the water. The bed was comfy and the sheets were soft....nothing worse than scratchy sheets on this was a big plus for us. Additionally the condo had so many wonderful items available for use, almost anything you could need they have. Water shoes, comfy beach chairs, cooler, picnic supplies, a french press (!), and great cooking supplies. Our only suggestion would be a little candle or light for outside so if you wanted to eat outside after dark you could. We LOVED the island of Kauai and hope to return....when we do we would definitely stay at this Pacific Paradise again. Thank you for being so thoughtful--it made our trip that much better! Mahalo!

Loved this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to be touring the islands for nearly a month, and your place was our favorite 'home away from home'. The kitchen was well stocked and we really appreciated the extras like spices, vinegars, oils, etc, and knowing that all the beach gear we could possibly need were there was awesome. We woke every morning to sea turtles swimming along the rocks directly outside our lanai, and sipped wine while watching toads come out at night. It was fun, relaxing and a lovely place to stay.

I also appreciate your professionalism, care and attention to detail in making the arrangements, Jackie. Thank you again for helping to make it such an enjoyable stay, and a special time for my mom and I to share.

Relax and Renew

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo from Nov 25-Dec 2, 2011 and it was just delightful. (There's a slightly different print on the sofa now, but the photos are accurate, and the condo was very clean and well-maintained.) If you know the Poipu area, you know that Kuhio Shores is right on the ocean, with a small beach on each side for swimming with turtles, snorkeling, and boogie-boarding. It's also just 1.2 miles from the amazing National Tropical Botanic Gardens, and a pleasant walk to the new high-end Shops at Kukui' ula.

The condo owners have provided everything you'll need: a GREAT bed, plenty of towels, beach mats (preferable to towels), boogie-boards, a few mask and snorkel sets, and a full suite of kitchen appliances and cooking items which satisfied my gourmet-chef husband. There were coffee filters for the coffee maker, but if you like to cook you may want to bring dry condiments (salt, sugar, flour, rice) in small portions from home. Do your grocery shopping in Kaloa for fresh fish and local-style veggies and snacks---ask for boiled peanuts---and be sure to share 3 or 4 tapas plates at Josselin's and a pizza at Brick Oven. This fairly-priced unit will provide you with a great place to renew and relax!
