Janis and I fell in love with Kauai in the early 90's and purchased our first condo there in 1999. We believe this Island is truly a special tropical oasis...away from the hustle and bustle of the neighboring Islands. Kauai is like going back to Mayberry in the 50's...everybody knows your name....
These condos are our extended families 'homes' and not primarily rentals. They are equipped as every good home should be...so there is no 'used rental property' feel to them. Everything is new, or near new...and they will exceed your every reasonable expectation. Janis takes great pride in making sure cutlery matches and is sharp, pots and pans are in as new condition, plates and glassware match etc/etc/etc. A million details that only an owner would attend to. Pillow are replace bi-monthly, linens and towels are thick and soft, and not worn out and threadbare. 300 thread count sheets and new/fresh bath and beach towels are provided.
vicki agor purchased this condo in 1999
Absolutely 100% all ocean...all the time. These condos are the absolute closest to the water in all of Kauai. RIGHT on the beach or ocean front with 200 to 300 degree ocean views depending on the condo. Any closer and you would need fins....
Each condo has it's own special feel and benefits....Surfers love Kuhio Shores #119 where they can surf right outside their back door....Honeymoners love #418 The Penthouse for 100% privacy and the best views on the Island bar none....Kuhio Shores is right on the ocean front....Something for everybody!
John and Janis,
Just wanted to thank you for sharing your wonderful vacation home with us. The entire family had such a great time. We have stayed at Kuhio Shores a number of times both in one bedroom and two bedroom units but yours by far is the nicest we have stayed in and will be our number one choice from now on! Not only were the views fabulous but the layout of the condo perfect for our family. I don't think there was anything else we could have asked for. The beds were so comfortable, the kitchens had great cookware, dishes and even a crockpot. There was so much beach gear there.... sand toys for the kids, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, chairs, coolers and a beach umbrella. The added fans came in handy and I think we ate most meals on your nice lanai table.
It was paradise, the only downside was that we had to come home. We already miss going to sleep and waking up to the waves, views and most mornings we even had rainbows.
Thanks again for sharing your place and being so easy to work with making reservations! Hope to able to go back again soon.
Lauri and Family!
Top marks for professional service during booking and then again with the follow up after our stay.
Very accessible condo, nicely furnished, comfy beds, beautiful view. We felt secure the whole time.
We were a bit put off by 3 things:
1) There was an insane amount of dust on the silk plants in the second bedroom and bathroom. When you observe that type of cleaning oversight, you can't help but wonder what else might have been overlooked. We put the plants in a closet to keep them far away.
2) Only 1/2 a roll of toilet paper in the master bathroom and no more provided. There was an extra roll in the other bathroom. We had to buy additional toilet paper which really "bummed" us out given that is generally a supplied item.
3) We like to cook at home. However, I would like to see that the owners do a better assessment of the supplies they provide. For example, supplying Saran wrap, food storage containers (Tupperware), and maybe a few more items in addition to salt, pepper and sugar. We stay in a condo on Maui and are always delighted that there are a number of spices, tea, etc. supplied or left by previous guests. Seeing the stingy supplies, we decided against leaving the Saran wrap, teas and spices we had purchased. I think it is a goodwill gesture that will go a long way to improving the experience at the condo.
The building itself is not on a beach if you are wanting to walk out and right onto sand. There is a rocky shoreline and there is a great beach a short walk along the oceanfront pathway.
Because the unit is close to the Beach House Restaurant, you will experience large groups of people out front of the restaurant and lots of weddings going on. Pretty to watch but it did feel a bit like we were in a fish bowl.
We would recommend this spot as it has a lot to offer to others but would caution them on the above items.
This place has it all, location,luxury, and owners who care about your stay. You're 50 feet from the ocean, in the penthouse, with a great snorkel beach right outside your balcony. The property was perfectly cleaned upon arrival, the beds and bathrooms were first rate, washer/dryer in unit, even a closet of beach stuff (boogie boards,cooler,chairs etc.) that you won't have to rent or buy. The kitchen was fully equipped if having meals in is in your plans. The online booking process is easy, and the owners are 'hands on' to ensure a premium experience for your vacation. We are experienced (and fussy) travelers who know a good thing when we see it, this is it.
We loved the place. We watched angel fish right below us, had amazing views of whales, dolphins and sea turtles, and the sunsets were absolutely incredible. The condo itself was very comfortable, clean & well outfitted.
Everything was ready for us when we arrived, and the condo and everything in it were clean and in good condition. The owner was very helpful in giving us all the information we would need. You can't beat this location, just steps from the lovely rocky shore. We loved the constant sound of the waves. A nice little beach is right around the corner with good snorkeling. A wonderful spot.
We have rented from John and Janis before and it is a toss up between the Penthouse and 119 Kuhio Shores but we all voted for 119. We loved the ease of having a ground floor unit and felt like we were on the beach the entire stay. The condo has every thing you could ask for, numerous beach items, a well equipped kitchen and a awesome view .It is updated, clean and well maintained. We did not find noise or privacy an issue being on the ground floor. We loved the advantage of walking out the slider every morning and watching the turtles feed, the grass area for the kids to play and watching the sunset every evening from our unit. We loved walking a few steps next door to the best snorkeling on the island. Baby Beach is just a block away which the kids enjoyed. The new shopping center is within wallking distance and has some great restuarants. We have stayed in other condos in Kuhio Shores but John and Janis have the best units! Working with them is a joy also. The only place to stay in Kauai is at Kuhio Shores 119 and the Penthouse!
You can't get closer to the ocean than this! The view from the living room and kitchen is stunning, and only a handful of steps takes you out to the ocean. We loved watching the sea turtles AND the surfers ride the waves! We went down on the rocks every morning while the tide was out to search for sea life.
The condo was cozy and clean if smaller than I expected. The bedrooms were cool at night even without a/c. The showers were very nice and the water pressure good (a pet peeve of mine). The mini washer and dryer were great for drying wet bathing suits. Condo was in a good, easy-to-reach location that was a short drive from everywhere. Beautifully decorated and had everything we needed from dishes to beach chairs to boogie boards.
Of course, being on the ground floor has its drawbacks. There was very little privacy. Since the condo is right next door to a restaurant and a snorkeling area, people were constantly passing by the windows and the patio.
Would stay here again.
