OCEANFRONT CONDO WITH THE COMFORTS OF HOME

Poipu Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath (sleeps 2)

Kuhio Shores 104 is on the ground floor of this special property, where a covered lanai and a lush green lawn are only things between the living room and the ocean. We are on the quieter east side, where the sun rises and the cooling trade winds blow. The sea turtles pop their heads up to welcome you. Just imagine yourselves sitting on our cozy chairs on the lanai, enjoying your meal or favorite drink. It is just beautiful!

We have made our condo comfortable and inviting in the spirit of Aloha. We want you to feel perfectly at home. As your hosts, our main goal is for you to have a wonderful vacation experience. We are always available to you.

The furnishings are all new. There is a new king bed with a lux memory foam topper for optimum comfort. The new sofa bed is also made for both seating and sleeping comfort. The sofa sleeper has been an option for guests who want to hear the sounds of the ocean as they sleep. The living room is furnished in a tasteful island style, with practicality also in mind. There is plenty of lighting to read or use your computer, with our wireless high speed internet. The kitchen is well equipped and well stocked for cooking. Along with major appliances, there is a microwave, coffee maker, separate espresso maker, blender, for your island drinks, rice cooker, and all of the dishes, pots, pans and utensils you will need. There is also a great Weber BBQ on the premises. Each of the floors at Kuhio Shores has washer and dryers for your convenience.

Our condo has a great system of lockable plantation shutters so that you can keep the lanai shutters open to hear the waves and feel the cooling breezes. Being on the ground floor also allows you spread out on the lawn, giving you a much bigger space to enjoy the magnificent view. Our condo is in a very convenient location just to the left of the Kuhio Shores lobby. There is no need to use the elevator or stairs.

Here, you are at the water’s edge, but the rest of Kauai has so much to offer. Some of the very best snorkeling and diving can be had on either side of Kuhio Shores. Ho'ai Bay just in front, is a favorite of locals and the home to many sea turtles. Behind is Prince Kuhio's birthplace, a sacred heritage site. Lawai Beach, next to the famed Beach House Restaurant is exceptional. Other amazing white sand beaches for surfing, swimming and snorkeling in Poipu area are just minutes away. Old Koloa Town just up the road, is a gem of old Hawaii. Kukui’ ula Shopping Center, with fine dining and shopping, is a short walk away …and then there is the rest of the breathtaking Garden Isle!

John and Brenda Loudon-

We have lived for over 30 years on the beautiful Mendocino coast of northern California.This is our first home, where we have raised our children. John is a General Building contractor, specializing in custom homes, and I am a nurse at the local hospital. We love to travel and have been to many special places. We thought that our first home was still the most beautiful place...that is until we experienced Kauai. The friendliness and kindness of the local people also drew us. There is an easy smile and an open heart--the true spirit of Aloha.

John and Brenda Loudon purchased this condo in 2012

I just happened to find our unit, Kuhio Shores #104 on VRBO while hunting for a place to stay on our first trip to Kauai. We couldn't believe how special Kuhio Shores was with the close proximity to the ocean, beautiful gardens and the extremely helpful staff. We returned several times and found out that the unit was for sale! We felt strongly that it was 'meant to be'. We feel so very lucky and are excited to be able to share our second home!

The beauty of this ground floor unit is the location. It is oriented to greet the morning's sunrise and the afternoons Tradewinds.

This allows a complete Hawaiian experience all from your lanai.

A gem in lush Kaua'i

My husband and I stayed here for 12 nights in February, our 7th trip to Hawaii, and second time on Kaua'i. The condo was very well stocked, more than others we have rented in the past. It was bright, clean, well-maintained and comfortable for the two of us. We ate most meals and spent the most time on the lanai watching the honu and snorkellers in the bay and whales in the ocean. There is nothing better! Kuhio Shores is very well maintained, and in an excellent location. We would stay here again, and hope to very soon! Mahalo Brenda and John for showing us the spirit of Aloha with your gem in Kaua'i.

Great Condo on the Water

Great well appointed, extremely clean condo on the water. Ocean breezes cool the nicely decorated rooms. There is a room air conditioner should the humidity or doldrums hit. We definitely would go back. Easy and great morning walk routes close by.

Just right for us

This condo is beautifully decorated with high quality linens, appliances etc. Very comfortable, well maintained. We were welcomed with a lovely fruit tray. We really enjoyed just relaxing on the lanai, especially early mornings, to watch the ocean and birds. A real highlight was snorkeling. The shoreline beside the building on one side is rocky and a little tricky but there are many sea turtles. On the other side of the condo there is a lovely sandy beach and the snorkeling was also awesome with abundant colorful fish. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions & provided lots of information on things to see and do. We had an evening flight and the owner was flexible with a late departure which we also really appreciated.

Wonderful oceanside retreat

  • Submitted: Aug 8, 2013

We couldn't keep our eyes away from the ocean--in full view of and only steps away from this lovely, well-appointed condo. The space was really thoughtfully decked out - everything from the binoculars to the snorkel sets to the beach chairs to the coffee machine made our stay really enjoyable. Sites and beaches in Poipu are close to the condo - the lawn in front of the Beach House restaurant, prime sunset-viewing territory, is only a short walk away. We also took advantage of the shopping center (The Shops at Kukui ula) close by. It has great restaurants (Tortilla Republic, for example) and an expensive but handy market with great wine and organic groceries.

The owners were responsive and offered great tips about what to see and do. They seemed genuinely interested in making sure that we had a pleasant experience.

The only downside is the lack of privacy--since the unit is on the ground floor, several people (surfers among them) walked past our place to check out the view from the Kuhio Shores lawn. You can't blame them, though, because the view is beautiful. We spent most of the time on the lanai, checking out the sea turtles.
