The Governor has extended the two-week quarantine through July 31st, for non-Hawaiians. Any booked date sooner must be a resident. Come August 1st, quarantine is not required for out of state residents if you have a negative covid test taken at least 72 hours before your arrival (CVS, for example, will be sharing results with the states). We sanitize all surfaces prior to your arrival. On Kauai's sunny south shore. Floor to ceiling windows on the lanai, for the full width of the condo facing spectacular ocean views and sounds, on the side of Kuhio Shores where the giant sea turtles hang-out, with the lanai facing the trade-winds for constant comfort. Steeped in ultra warm hawaiian decor with Koa wood and etched glass and Hawaiian art, and walking directly out to the ocean from the lanai make 106 is the "best of the best" Kuhio Shores offers. Oyster says: "the only hotel this close to the water on all of Kauai"... It's not a hotel, but I believe the rest is correct. Our condo is distinctive with its beautiful native artwork, shell collections, handcrafted woodwork, handcrafted etched glass and mirrors, Hawaiian style decor with a Hawaiian CD mix that provides you with a relaxing environment inducing the aloha spirit. Our condo takes you back to the time when the tropics were truly a remote adventure. You will probably not find any residence on Kaua'i with this much Koa woodwork. Contractors have expressed amazement at the the woodworking. Add the island scenes in the etched glass and other artwork for a unique one-of-a-kind island experience. Open the windows and listen to the ocean waves lull you to sleep. Why settle for less than direct access to the beach? From the upper floors, beach access is through the elevators then through the parking lot... while we have direct ocean access from one of the largest lanai's at Kuhio Shores.... where you can spread-out onto the immaculately kept lawn extending towards the ocean and enjoy unconfined ocean access. Where else are you going to find the ocean at such a great price with all the comforts of home? Located steps from the beach, Kuhio Shores provides snorkeling, scuba, surfing, swimming, biking, sunning, and beachcombing without having to get in your car or even cross the street. You are five minutes away from famous Po'ipu Beach and old Koloa town; with excellent shopping and restaurants. Spouting Horn and the National Tropical Botanical Gardens are less than 5 minutes down the road. Kukui'ula Village (restaurants and shopping) is a five minute walk. (Note that I'm getting booking requests for winter 24 months in advance, so have blocked those dates currently, and give priority to repeat guests. Come August/September (16 months ahead), I'll solidify that schedule, and open what remains for all.) Kuhio Shores 106 is a great location! This one bedroom (plus a couch-bed), one bath, unit will be your home away from home. Ho'ai bay, right off the lanai, is known as some of the best snorkeling on Kauai. Snorkel with the turtles and the colorful tropical fish, just steps away from the lanai (watch the video above, snorkeling with the turtles off the condo). From the lanai you can enjoy the view across to the Ha'upu mountain range, or the sunrise on the bay, or looking out onto the ocean, watching the waves, sailing ships, dolphins jumping, or whales breaching in the distance, and the near constant stream of turtles that come within 20' of your feet to the edge of the bay to feed... all relaxing from your lounge on the lanai, sipping your morning coffee. The lanai faces East, so the lanai is shaded from the afternoon sun, and the ocean trade winds from the East keep the condo nice and cool year round. Kuhio Shores 106 provides the following amenities: o Ground floor for easy beach access o Netflix on-demand streaming video o King bed in the bedroom o Queen hide-a-bed in the living room o Fully Equipped kitchen with Kashmir granite counter tops o Plantation shutters across the lanai for privacy with ocean sounds and breeze o Koa wood shutters in the bedroom o Hawaiian style decor with etched art designed mirrors and glass o Double shower head o High speed internet access o Stereo and CD player with built in wall speakers o Two cable TVs one with VCR/DVD combo, one with DVD/Blu-Ray player o Movie, CD, and Book collection o Beach gear (ice chest, boogie board, beach chairs and mats, beach towels, and umbrella) o Shared washer and dryer on every floor o Shared, well-kept, barbeque grills If more than 2 guests, please contact us via email to be sure you can fit your group comfortably (use the "send mail" option below the "request to book" option in the upper right-hand corner, and realize you'll immediately receive an auto-reply from HomeAway, seemingly from us, with a "book it now" request, before we'll be able to reply).

Great place to stay! Every morning we had coffee on the lanai watching turtles. Close to everything. The condo had everything you could need along with directions and labels. The bed was super comfy. Sunset is great and then watch as parrots fly in from the jungle to claim a palm tree. We would stay again.

While overall it gets 5 stars, the communication with Chris should get 8 stars. Every time I would email him I would have a reply in almost minutes, he answered EVERY question I had about the island and helped me with any concerns or questions I had in general. The rest of the comments about the property speak for them selves but i can not stress enough how helpful the owner was! I will defintly be booking again and look to stay again! The view in the morning is excellent, the location is great! It's a home away from home!

Easy... if you're staying in Poipu DO NOT HESITATE to stay here. It just doesn't get any better. Pics just don't do it justice, the water is literally feet away with giant sea turtles right there! Grab a mask, snorkel and fins from the closet and join them. Walk around the corner and bam, you're at one of the best surf beaches on the island and more great snorkeling there too. Packing for the beach? No need. You're already there!!! As for the condo itself? Once again pics just do not do it justice. The furnishings/decor are outstanding. Wait'til you see the lighting! So many different options really set the mood for a relaxing stay. Master bed was super comfy and the sofa makes into a bed too allowing you to sleep just feet from the ocean. Full kitchen should you opt to stock up on groceries and prepare meals "at home". Really nice stereo system with fully loaded cd player to enjoy tropical island music while relaxing on the lanai. We stayed in July so finding a place with AC was a priority however we never needed it. The owners are spot on about the trade winds offering up a cooling breeze because of the direction their condo faces. Probably best of all though are the owners themselves, Chris and Becky. They really went above and beyond to ensure a pleasant stay and are so knowledgeable about everything nearby from local restaurants/entertainment to farmers markets/selecting fruits in season and hikes/tours etc. We've only ever vacationed in hotels but never again after this! Booking through VRBO was fantastic and dealing with owners like the Worleys even more so!!!!!!!

When you first enter, the stunning view takes your breath away and then as you begin to view the condo, you are amazed and delighted with the Hawaiian art - authentic and colorful. We loved the location and nearby activities - one of our best stays on the island. Chris is amazing and full of island information about activities and beaches. Just awesome!

For being our first time to Kauai, we had an amazing time. We think that we maybe did to many excursions. Next time more swimming, snorkeling and relaxing. Thanks for letting us have the opportunity to share your condo. Make our stay easier, as we saved money by not eating out all the time. The lanai was perfect for chilling and listening to the waves. Thank you.

My husband and I loved this condo. Great location- close to delicious food, beautiful views and beaches. Plus we loved seeing the sea turtles off the lanai!! The owners are super helpful and were nice enough to give us great tips for our trip.

Just spent 4/11-4/22/19 at this wonderful condo and the LOCATION made every commute so easy! Chris, the owner went above and beyond for our stay and really took care of every detail. Chris reached out 2 weeks before our trip with all the details, including a 60 page pamphlet of everything we needed to know before our arrival. Once we were there, he sent another follow up to make sure everything was in order and going well. The place is on the vintage Hawaii side, a lot of Hawaiian/island style decorations, very homey, INCREDIBLE views, super comfy bed, with AC in the main living area and bedroom. We woke up every morning to catch the sun and look for turtles. There is also a key access that came in super handy at times. But this wonderful gem has an incredible cross breeze that comes right off the water, through the condo and the waves crashing was so relaxing and almost intoxicating. TIPS: -Don't print the entire pamphlet you receive = a copy is available on the coffee table. -Just print the code to get in and use your smart phone to get there. -Laundry is not IN the unit, but is available very close onsite w/limited hours. -Water area in pictures with snorkelers just outside unit, is very rough with waves and a little tricky to get into. -This place is perfection if your looking for quiet hours to relax yet be close to everything in Poipu.

My partner and I had a wonderful time at this condo. Spacious for 2 and very comfortable and the water is literally right outside the door - you can see turtles swimming around and surfacing for air! As you can see in the photos there's a rocky area, and a small sandy area on the other side of the building where people were surfing and body boarding. Location is excellent to get to other beautiful beaches, Waimea Canyon, etc. The guide books and suggestions provided were great. I just wish we could have stayed longer.

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay at Chris's Condo . We woke up each morning and watched the sun rise on the patio with a great cup of coffee. The condo had everything including 2 AC units if you enjoy a cool nights sleep. Beach gear including chairs, snorkel equipment and extra beach towels. Each evening after we made dinner as a family we spent time watching the local Surf experts just off the condo facility ride great waves in. Chris checked in each day to make sure everything was going well and was a great resource for local hot spots for hiking and or special beaches. Being on the first floor really made it special for enjoying the Ocean just outside our door. We hope to be back soon! Bob, Janice, Drew & Haley

This condo has everything you need for comfort and convenience. With windows open and ceiling fans we had a nice breeze through the condo. And bonus to hear and see the ocean. Bed super comfy even the pillows. On the most part, it was very quiet night and day. Although lawn care starts early on Monday mornings. The condo was well furnished. Plenty of bedding and linens. We stayed a bit over a week and only did 2 loads of laundry. Probably could have gotten away with one load if our clothes weren't covered in mud from a hike up Waimea Canyon! I used the snorkel gear offered and fit perfect for a person with a smaller frame. My partner rented his snorkel gear at a store attached to restaurant right next door to condo. The snorkel bay was about 200' from back door. We were in the water every day - all kinds of tropical fish and sea turtles. Quite amazing. We rented a car and parking was always available at condo lot. Kitchen was fully equipped but have to admit we didn't spend a lot of time cooking. But great to have options. Used the cooler and ice packs almost every day. Great idea - thanks Chris! Spent our evenings on the lanai lounging on comfortable lounge chairs. We were lucky to have clear skies almost every night to enjoy the stars and pick out constellations. The condo is walking distance to a supermarket and plenty of restaurants. We highly recommend this condo when staying in Poipu/Kauai. Appreciate the thoughtful correspondence by owner, Chris. Thank you. Sincerely, Christine Eardley and Todd Gehrke.

My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) had a blast at the condo. Loved the decorations and the organized beach toy room. The location is great with watching turtles and surfers on the beach lawn. The Beachhouse restaurant is delicious and enjoyed our drinks watching the waves. Overall, a 5 star stay!!

Kuhio Shores was the PERFECT space and location for our family of three. So close to everything yet felt private and away from the traffic. The condo was well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay on this beautiful island. We enjoyed cooking our meals. There are a couple BBQs across the parking lot that are very well maintained. One evening I BBQ'd a chicken and another guest was preparing steaks. It was fun to chat while we cooked (with our wine of course) and compare notes on what attractions to see. The bed was amazingly comfortable and hearing the ocean from anywhere in the condo was amazing. We will definitely return and this is where we'll want to stay!

Don’t miss this

Room was nice/spacious and the turtle cove view was amazing. Prefer a west facing unit for sunsets but no big deal. Two very lacking amenities the we normally love in Hawaii are no ocean front pool, actually no pool at all and barbecue pad was at the far end of the parking lot next to the dumpsters. So, for us the overall property was disappointing but everyone has different priorities. If you want a comfortable/spacious room it’s a good spot for you.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The view of the water was terrific - and the sound of the water crashing onto the shore amazing and right out the door. We watched sea turtles right from our lanai while they snacked along the shoreline. The condo was well appointed and had everything we needed. The entire complex was in good condition and others staying were considerate and quiet. All in all - we had a lovely time.

This condo was clean and very nicely decorated. We loved all the details and kitchen accessories. Very comfortable bed and bathroom too. The "gear" closet offered anything you need to go to the beach or picnic. The owners are very responsive and gave us lots of good suggestions for island activities.
