About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

ON THE OCEAN condominium with awesome views. SURF - SNORKEL - SUNBATH - SIGHT SEE - or SIMPLY relax.

The minute you step in the door you are welcomed by the most spectacular view of the beautiful and tropical Pacific Ocean. We are directly facing the ocean!

This is a recently remodeled (June 2014) two bedroom, 2 bath condo that sleeps 6. There is a King Size Bed in the master, a Queen size bed in the second bedroom and a Queen sofa bed in the living area. We are on the second floor (with elevator close by) which allows for a seamless connection between the condo and the ocean below. The ocean is directly in front of you. You are floating over the Waves and the blue waters of the Pacific as far as you can see. Offers great privacy as no other units can see into your space.

With Floor to Ceiling and Wall to Wall Windows, watch the sea, surfers and turtles from the Living room, Dining room or Lanai. Whales go by in the winter months. The Turtles feed almost every day directly in front. Sunbathe or enjoy one of the islands best snorkeling locations at the beach right next to the condo, or walk up the road to see the island's blow hole. Between the spectacular views and sunsets and the soothing sound of the waves, you are instantly transformed into vacation mode.

The kitchen is newly remodeled with new flooring, cabinets, granite counter tops and new appliances. It's fully furnished with everything you need to cook in or enjoy a drink or dinner from one of the islands best restaurants and bars, The Beach House, which is located right next door.

Both the en suite bath and shower and the hall second bath have been fully remodeled. The hall bath has double sinks and both have custom tile work with premium finishes.

Our custom art work on the walls adds to the Hawaiian feel. You are not in a typical rental.

There are also BBQ's on site for your use. There is a new Flat Screen TV in the living area and both Cable and Wireless Internet are provided. With a smart TV, Netflix is built in and available for your use. There is a parking lot for easy access, allowing one car per unit..

The popular tourist areas of Poipu are just a mile or so away, as well as the historic town of Koloa and the grocery store. The Shops at Kukui'ula are an easy walking distance with many fine restaurants, ice cream and shopping.

Welcome to our favorite place. Enjoy the peace, relaxation and adventure the island of Kauai brings.

About Karen Ness

My husband and I love the ocean. We are always amazed at the ocean's ability to calm and relax us the minute we step in the door.

Karen Ness purchased this condo in 2003

Why Karen Ness chose Kauai

We came on vacation and after staying at Kuhio Shores knew we wanted to own a condo there. We love Kauai and the condo location is just perfect. There is no other building on the island like it. Being only 30 feet from the ocean and watching the waves and the turtles is mesmerizing. We love it.

What makes this condo unique

We love how the living, dining and kitchen areas of the condo directly face the ocean. With floor to ceiling windows and mirrors on the side walls, the ocean views come in from all angles.

Great Snorkeling and an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Karen's condo! The view was great, a very small beach right within walking distance. Not a lot of laying out space but amazing snorkeling, we even saw sea turtles. Definitely read the rules as the condo people are very strict, no towels on the balcony. We had a rental car and found it very easy to navigate the island, loved the beach by Port Allen, I believe it is where the salt ponds are. Great space and Karen was very responsive and helpful!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here to celebrate our 25th anniversary and had a wonderful time. Location,location,location this place has it. The floor to ceiling glass facing the ocean gives a great view and we could hear the waves all the time, just what we wanted. The unit was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. I was nervous to not have AC, but you open the windows and use the ceiling fans, it works great. We liked being on the second floor above the foot traffic outside. The unit is close enough to the water, we could watch the turtles in front each morning as we ate breakfast at the kitchen table. We snorkeled with the turtles in front of the condo and saw lots of fish while snorkeling at the end of the units by the Beachhouse Restaurant.The building was quiet while we were there and has nice parking lot. While you could walk to places, we drove. It was only a few minutes to get to shopping and restaurants (and ice cream and gelato) and maybe 10 minutes to the Big Save grocery store in Koloa. This is also a good base to explore the rest of the island. One tip, get a shave ice at Jo Jos in Waimea. All in all, this is a great place to stay, would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

The property was an excellent value.

  • 4 of 5

The experience was overall positive. Our neighbors were very courteous. We had a change of the guard out last two nights which offered a different experience but the overall stay was good. The property was clean and the location was excellent. We took some great pictures of the Sea Turtles and surfers from outside the patio door.

There were many activities nearby and was a central location to everything on the island. The initial shock of no air conditioning was satisfied by the trade wind circulation and was not a problem.

We look forward to our next trip to the island.

Owner's Response: It's always fun meeting other guests. They are from all over, each enjoying their vacation. We are lucky with the trade winds and being right on the waters edge. The building just recently approved air conditioning for those rare days with no breeze. It should be installed in our unit by summer.

Our Hawaii Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this condo 7 times now over the last 10 years - and it gets more fabulous each year. They owners take very good care and keep updating things. They are so nice to work with - just a pleasure. The condo is right on the water where you can watch turtles feed. You hear the sound of crashing waves as you enjoy your meals in the renovated kitchen/nook area. Comfy beds, two full bathrooms - perfect for a family of 4 - or for those who have small children - as someone can stay in the condo while they nap and the others can go snorkeling right in front and swim with turtles. A few minutes walk from a newly developed shopping center with a Lapperts for coffee and ice cream and a Living Foods (like a mini Whole Foods) - and one building over is the famous Beach House Restaurant. We just love this condo, with the amenities and owners who really care - their love for Kauai is obvious - now there are paintings by the owner that adorn the walls. Netflix and other TV options included - free WiFi. Laundry facilities in the building.

Awesome views and sounds of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation we just had. The condo had awesome views and sounds of the oceans. We saw turtles everyday, beautiful sunsets, and great snorkeling over by the beach house - if you take fish food with you - the fish will swarm around you. It was awesome to see! After visiting the entire island, I highly recommend staying on the south shore. Great access to the west shore and east shore. Not much to do in the north shore except see the beaches - which were great as well. Definitely need to return to Kaua'i...

Gorgeous Ocean Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days at this beautiful condo. You are close to the ocean's edge and can watch the turtles, surfers and snorkelers from the balcony. Gorgeous ocean views day and night! The condo, located in a quiet, well-maintained complex, was clean and comfortably furnished. The beds were comfortable as well, including the sofa bed which our daughter slept on so she could hear the ocean all night long! Conveniently located for shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. Karen and Dave provided information on places to visit, shop and restaurants as well as guide books which we found most helpful. A truly wonderful vacation on an island paradise!
