About Betty Smith

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!

Betty Smith purchased this condo in 2006

Why Betty Smith chose Kauai

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.

What makes this condo unique

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

Kuhio Shores 212 is a great place to stay for your next trip to Kauai. My wife and I made our first trip to the island Dec. 30 - Jan 8, 2016 and we couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. Betty and Bart will provide everything you need to ensure a smooth experience. The condo itself is clean and quiet with an amazing view from the lanai. We enjoyed every sunrise there and saw turtles and whales from the lanai every day of our trip! For the sunsets, we simply strolled down to the lovely lawn area right on the water. One of the best snorkeling beaches on the island is right next door. Other amazing beaches are a short distance and all the gear necessary to enjoy them is provided in the condo. We used the coolers when we ventured to the North Shore or other destinations, such as Waimea Canyon. The kitchen is well-equipped and we prepared most of our meals there. Every utensil one can think of is provided. There are several great restaurants nearby with our favorite being Roy's Eating House 1849. The bathroom is nice and the large shower was both refreshing and relaxing. Open the doors and windows and the sound of the ocean and the lovely breezes lull you right to sleep. The building is clean and quiet. We would return again to Kuhio Shores 212 the next time we visit the island and would recommend it to friends and family as well. Scott and Brenda, Placerville, CA

This condo was excellent in every way. Being there was like being a guest in someones home. The balcony faced the ocean where we saw sea turtles and surfers. The sound of the surf was very audible and was wonderful both day and night. A nice sea breeze flows through the condo. The condo was tastefully furnished and decorated. It was also very well equipped with a well-equipped kitchen. The bed was firm and comfortable. The building and grounds were very well maintained. The location is great. Next door is a very good restaurant and next to that is a beach where snorkeling is good. The water abounds with tropical fish and with luck you might see a sea turtle. From the grass just outside the condo, you can see the sunset. It is a comfortable walk to a shopping village with a nice market, several restaurants and some tourist shops. Koloa town where you can find many shops, grocery store, and more restaurants is only a couple miles away. We heard almost no sounds from the neighbors while we were there. There are other great beaches and a great beach walk within a few miles. If I am lucky enough to return to Kauai, I will stay here again if I can and I definitely would recommend it to others.

What a great place to start our two week vacation in Kauai. The condo had everything to make our stay wonderful, but we could not get over the view! My husband took some excellent surfing pictures right from the lanai, and we also saw turtles and dolphins. We will be staying here again.

A wonderful 25th anniversary

  • 5 of 5

This lovely and immaculate condo is situated in the perfect Kauai location. We walked to the Beach House restaurant (literally next door) and could walk to a great spot for snorkeling. The Poipu Beach is a 5 minute drive away with lifeguards, ample parking and monk seals!

The condo is very comfortably furnished and the crashing of the surf below can be heard throughout. The unit comes conveniently equipped with the essential "beach toys". The building itself is well-kept and quiet. The laundry room could not be more convenient and is just around the corner from this unit.

Many thanks to Betty and Bart for sharing their wonderful home with us and gifting us with an anniversary toast.

Week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Kuhio Shores was wonderful! The ocean front condo was beautiful and we spent a lot of time on our balcony watching the turtles swim. We prepared breakfast at the condo and a couple of dinners too. The Beach House restaurant is next door. We had dinner there one night while watching the sunset. I highly recommend this condo as it was a week of serenity and fun!

Heaven's front door!

  • 5 of 5

What a thoughtful (and surprising) gesture to help us celebrate our 43rd anniversary! We MUCH appreciate Betty & Bart's kindness. We enjoyed the champagne on a perfect sunset trip to Polihale. Thanks for remembering our special occasion.

Kuhio Shores #212 is soooo beautifully furnished AND clean...beyond our wildest dreams! The online photos simply don't do it justice! We are so pleased with everything that is provided for guests and are already talking about a repeat visit in the future -- :)

We open the lanai door and instantly view whales (with our binoculars), turtles, surf boarders, and morning sunrises. What a treat! In the evenings, the sunsets on the lawn with a glass of wine...we were over-the-moon with all this beauty!

Very charming condo, and conveniently-located to fabulous hiking trails, Waimea Canyon, snorkeling, Port Allen (helicopter rides and whale-watching trips up the NaPoli coast), incredible restaurants, and more. Easy access also to the northside and Wailua River on the eastside!

Nature's delight!

We are grateful for all the memories from our week-long stay!
