About vicki agor

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 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

Why vicki agor chose Kauai

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....

What makes this condo unique

Each condo has it's own special feel and benefits....Surfers love Kuhio Shores #119 (VRBO #895528) 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at this property. Views from the balcony are the best. Saw a wedding and a surfing contest from our room. Condo had all required amenities. Only issue was a cranky washing machine but there was another one on the property that could be used. No issues at all with checking in or out. Had another wonderful stay. I will be back.

This is an update of a previous review. My only compliant was the lack of compensation offered by management company for the inconvenience of not having hot water for four days. Since then the owner has contacted me and apologized. He has offered some compensation so I upgraded my review to five stars. The condo is lovely and the location beautiful. It's perfectly located to visit other parts of the island. It's better equipped than I expected. The washer/dryer was a wonderful perk. The beds were comfortable which I appreciated as I have a bad back. I would definitely recommend property to a friend.

Beautiful Location; Poor Condition and Property Management

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 1 week. We have stayed at this property (Kuhio Shores) many times before in different units. Most beautiful location on the beach/rocks in all of Poipu. We rented this unit because we were traveling with another couple and needed a 2-bedroom. Desperately needs a renovation. The furniture is shabby, the kitchen is ill-equipped, the bathroom tub drain was clogged and took forever to drain, and everything was dirty and dusty. We cleaned some while we were there. Property Management Company was not helpful. Mentioned the lack of kitchen supplies and the drain and they were not interested. By the way, don't be in a hurry to get your deposit back as it took them 3 and one-half weeks to return my money. In my opinion, very expensive for a unit desperately in need of renovation. I gave it a "good" only due to the view/location.

Beautiful Location and Lovely Condo

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Aloooooha! Thanks for your review! Please note that Sugas and Spices are kept to an absolute minimum simply because ants love the Island as much as anyone else and if they discover an empty condo with a bit of spilled sugar it can be a mess. I will take your advide however and keep additional "sealed" bottle spices in the condo....Aloha and Mahalo!

100% in Poipu

  • 5 of 5

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.

The Best Place To Stay On The Island

  • 5 of 5

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.
