LUXURY OCEANFRONT RETREAT FOR TWO IN POIPU BEACH, KAUAI

Koloa Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Kuhio Shores 212: Step into our dream come true oceanfront condo and you won't want to leave. From the minute you open our front door and gaze at the stunning ocean views, you'll be mesmerized! We've taken great care in providing you all the comforts and amenities of home plus lots of extras. So kick off your shoes ''Hawaiian Style,'' relax, and enjoy your favorite beverage on our oceanfront lanai. Watch the turtles and dolphins play, the surfers catch the waves and experience the magnificent and memorable sunrises and sunsets on this beautiful island. Truly, this is paradise found. So please, be our guests!

We fell in love with the south (''sunny'') side of the gorgeous island of Kauai when we spent our Honeymoon here in 1978. We've been going back as much as possible ever since! We thought our dream of one day owning our own home in Poipu was probably an 'impossible' one, but always looked for opportunities nonetheless. That day was realized when we found an availability in Kuhio Shores which is 20 feet from the ocean! After completely demolishing the interior, we remodeled and now offer our home for others to enjoy as well.

Our home is right on the ocean with access to some of the best snorkeling, surfing and body boarding on the island. Watching the turtles frolic in the waves from the lanai and when in season, whales and dolphins as well! One of the best restaurants on the island, The Beach House, is conveniently located right next door.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Happy New Year, Betty and Bart, We have just returned on the 18th from your beautiful condo in Kauai. It was an experience that we will remember for a long time. The stunning beauty of the ocean views, the wonderful warmth, beautiful scenery and wildlife, and the friendliness of all the people we met. The delicious seafood we enjoyed, many local treats, vivid snorkeling-so amazing. It was an adventure & your accommodation made it a home away from home. Thank you once again, Stephanie and Walter

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on Kauai and we stayed in this wonderful condo. Betty couldn't have been more helpful and the condo was all that we could ask for! I would recommend this to anyone!

Favorite place to stay in Hawaii - great for couples!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend (27) and I (32) took a two week tour of Maui and Kauai over new years, 2013-2014. We stayed in four different places, south and north shore Maui, and south and north shore Kauai, and this was by far our most favorite place to stay.

First, Betty provided all of the necessary information to arrive safely late at night with no issues. We got in, got a good sleep, and woke up to an amazing sunrise right on the balcony the next morning! I don't think you can find a condo in Kauai that is closer to the ocean than Kuhio Shores. The condo has amazing light from the balcony and windows facing the ocean. Kuhio Shores is shaped like an L, and this condo is on the part that you want, facing the ocean directly to the south.

We were pleasantly surprised by how nice all of the appliances were- granite counters, cable TV, and more. The bed was incredibly comfortable and you can definitely hear the ocean at night, though it's not directly next to the balcony. Waking up and eating breakfast and drinking coffee on the balcony was one of our favorite things to do. We saw turtles and whales right from our balcony.

Further, the best snorkeling we saw in Kauai was right below us, in the water outside of Kuhio Shores. If you're considering staying in the south, keep in mind it's calm and perfect in the winter, I'm not sure about the summer. And of course, vice versa for the North shore. When we went to stay in the north shore, we were a bit spoiled with how good it was in the south in January.

Either way, this place is a real gem, you can't go wrong. Book it early, and for longer than you think you need. You won't want to leave this place.

Great location; Comfortable accommodations.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2-week stay at Kuhio Shores. Being right on the south shore (a stone's throw from the Pacific), we took in every sunrise and sunset possible. One of our morning rituals was having coffee on the balcony while spotting the many sea turtles playing below. This property was clean, well-maintained, and accurately described online. The owners were very accommodating, informative, and really easy to work with. We can't wait to return and would highly recommend this unit, as it's truly paradise on earth.

Great Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week on Kaua'i. The condo is well appointed and very comfortable. We enjoyed watching the sea turtles riding the waves while eating lunch on the balcony. The beach right next to the condo was a great spot for snorkeling - in fact I think better than the famed Tunnels beach. This is a great location with fine dining and more casual restaurants just a few steps from the condo. We were a little worried about not having air conditioning, but the cross breeze and ceiling fans made for very comfortable sleeping. Also, Betty and Bart have provided some very useful travel guides, boogie boards, beach chairs etc. All of these little touches made for a wonderful holiday to celebrate my 40th birthday. Mahalo for sharing your condo!

The Best

  • 5 of 5
We frequently stay with Vacations by Owner. This condo was the best value ever. We stayed for one week in 2012. The condo is a small but very comfortable apartment. The pictures do now show how beautiful that it is. Everything was clean and updated. Things like kitchen towels seemed recently replaced. Nothing was worn and faded. I do cook and we cooked each evening. The kitchen equipment was better then I have at home. We could not have had a more beautiful view in any resturant. This was our second stay in Hawaii and if we ever return it will be to this property. I will not comment on beaches, resturants etc. other than to say this in one great vacation. Be sure to have a puka dog for lunch.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from our fantastic Hawaiian vacation and just wanted to say our stay at Betty and Bart's condo was above and beyond our expectations. We cannot imagine a more perfect place to stay on the island and look forward to hopefully staying there again in the upcoming years. We have never felt so at home on vacation before and truly enjoyed watching the turtles while we ate breakfast or relaxed on the lanai at the end of an adventurous day.
