This was the perfect place for our Kauai trip. Great location to everything. You get to listen to the waves crash every night right out your door. We even got to watch a group of sea turtle swim right out the door as well! Would definitely come back on our next trip back.

The condo is as beautiful as the pictures! The location is great. Loved sitting on the Lanai watching the waves and sunrise every morning. You even get a great sunset view just around the corner! Highly recommended!

Great, we’ll appointed condo right on the water. Not much nearby (stores/shops), you really want a car here, but pretty decent snorkeling just to the west of the condo near the “Beach House” restaurant. Nice touch with the Longs drugs gift card/welcome package!

My wife and I enjoyed our time at the Poipu condo. It's in a very convenient spot for exploring the south shore, and made it easy enough to get out to Waimea. The condo had all the amenities we needed to make a comfortable stay, and the patio was a great spot for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. Our favorite part was watching the sea turtles swimming in the cove (we could even see them while sitting on the couch inside). The owners also did a great job communicating and responding to questions.

We had a wonderful and relaxing trip in Kauai. The condo had everything we needed and more. Our favorite was sitting on the patio having wine or coffee listening to the waves. I truly enjoyed watching the sea turtles swimming a few hundred yards away. You can’t find another sunset anywhere more beautiful. Poipu is a wonderful location because you can drive anywhere within 30 min on either side of the island. Our hosts made sure all our needs were met and checked in several times to make sure all was well. I would highly recommend this condo. Having air conditioning was a fabulous benefit, even in Oct it’s pretty hot. Loved having laundry facilities down the hall as well. Eat dinner at The Beach House they treat you like royalty and the food is heavenly. Thank you so much for sharing your oasis with us.

Great oceanfront location in Poipu - watch sunrise, sunset and surfers from your lanai or on the manicured lawn. No beach but a small one in front of Beach House restaurant right next door. Close to Poipu beaches and many restaurants. The condo is very well equipped, kitchen has everything you need and then some. Nicely appointed and comfortable furniture with roomy, well lit bathroom. Appreciated the AC in the hot weather.Thoughtful welcome gift from owners greeted us on arrival. We'll be back - Maholo!

My wife and I along with our 7 month old enjoyed our stay at this wonderful ocean front condo. The ground floor is definitely preferable and the best sunsets are just around the corner on the lawn. After traveling on the island the south side is where we enjoyed our stay the most and the nearby beaches, food, hikes and sites make this a fantastic rental. Communication from the owners was clear and easy to follow. What was also very helpful were the provided beach chairs, snorkel gear, coolers, boogie boards, and umbrellas. The pack-n-play was clutch. We recommend this rental for future guests.

My fiance and I stayed and this lovely condo a few days before our wedding right across from Kuhio Shores at the Beach House Restaurant in July 2019. There was some day time construction on the condominiums that Josh and Emily gave us plenty of notice about. They even shaved the per night price down a little for the inconvenience. The property is conveniently located on the South Shore of Kauai near plenty of restaurants and shopping in Poipu. The property itself if gorgeous and located just a few feet from the water where you can often see turtles swimming in Hoai Bay. There are dollys located in the atrium of the entrance during business hours that you can use to cart luggage/groceries to the unit. The unit itself is well-furnished and stocked with all of the kitchen utensils you’ll need for your stay. The bedroom is nice and dark but as others have said, you’ll want to keep the bedroom windows/shutters closed as they open to a mediumly trafficked hallway. The bathroom is great and comes with huge mirrors. The closet is prepped with beach equipment, LOTS of towels, and some local guide books to plan your next adventure. Last but not least, the A/C and fans offered a nice respite from the summer heat. As we are now forever tied to Kauai, we will be returning and recommending to any family or friends visiting the island. Mahalo for sharing your home with us!

Beautiful spot... Don't park under the trees though the birds did a number on the car.

This is a nice condo, in an aging building with well maintained grounds. There is a fair amount of open space, although we would have preferred a sit around counter in kitchen. But condo, on East side is very dark. Bedroom is totally dark, and its window actually opens onto the outside access hall. If you leave it open, you hear everyone out in the hall, and visa versa. If you do not have a lamp on, it is dark, even in the middle of the day. I suppose that could be OK if you wanted to sleep during the day.

Kuhio Shores 108 was located perfectly. During a large swell there is minimal snorkeling, but surfing was great.
Submitted: Jul 06, 2019
Very quiet and peaceful location and just a short walk/ drive to shopping, restaurants and beautiful Poipu Beach. The ocean is steps away and sea turtles are plentiful and easily viewed from the shoreline. The condo was well appointed with everything you’ll need for a wonderful vacation. The hosts are very responsive and they made the process very easy and pleasant. It was a great choice for us and somewhere we would love to go again!

What better way to be greeted than by turtles in front of your lanai?! My husband and I had a recent trip to this great condo and had an amazing time. Wonderful location, amazing sunrises and sunsets! Would absolutely book this condo again.

What a perfect place to stay. Right on the water nestled between 2 coves. One with a family of turtles! The other a perfect quiet beach with great snorkeling and the best shaved ice shack on the island with fresh fruit, owner made, flavors. Between the two coves is a beautiful grassy lawn on a rock wall great for watching sunrises and sunsets and relaxing. We loved being on the main floor as we could walk right out the door onto the shore line vs heading back thru the complex to access the beach. Felt so private because of that. Great size of bedroom, bath, and large kitchen and living. We loved this side of the island as we found the weather to be more favorable too. Owners were great to work with from booking to arrival, stay and departure. Thanks for allowing us the comfort of your home away from home in paradise!

We had an awesome stay at Kuhio Shores #108! The condo was clean and comfortable and had most amenities and food staples. The location was wonderful and we had access to the ocean right out of our door! The sunsets were amazing. We will be back!

We enjoyed our stay. The location is great just few feet from the sea (at night you hear the waves from the sofa bed). The apartment is not big but had everything we needed for us (family of 4, 2 small kids) including sand toys, beach umbrellas, chair etc. The host was very nice and responsive.

What a great place to stay in Kauai! There's nothing better than sitting on the patio just feet from the water each day. Location is great, just a short distance from restaurants and shops. We also enjoyed just walking around the corner to the Beach House for a good happy hour and to watch the sunset. Inside the condo was also nice, plenty of all the amenities you need. Would definitely stay here again.

We had the best time staying here with our family. I love that we could enjoy the ocean waves while our baby napped. Emily and Josh also provided excellent customer service and we are very thankful for the pack'n'play they provided us with. Great, comfortable and clean condo!

Although my star rating is low, I want to be fair with this review. The views and location are superb. The wonderful Beach House restaurant is next door. Turtles are abundant in the cove and whales frolic in the ocean. The hallway outside the unit door is extremely dark and you can't see the numbers on the key box without a flashlight. Inside, the furniture and fixtures are tired, which would be easy to overlook if the apartment were better cleaned. Pull back the pillows and the dust is thick behind them on the headboard, cabinets sticky, kitchen counter dusty behind appliances, refrigerator ice/water dispenser gross. Dim interior lighting, especially on cloudy days. Sliding doors and windows don't latch. Water warm but not hot in the bathroom. The bed is very comfortable, but sheets incredibly wrinkled. Don't be fooled by the photos, the bedroom windows open to the outside hallway so you would never want them or the shutters open. Kitchen well stocked and dishes clean. Three ring binder guidebook needs updating, as one of the recommended restaurants is permanently closed!

Enjoyed our stay at Kuhio Shores Very conveniently located and in a nice area. Wonderful sunset viewing in the lawn of condo property and we loved the water views as well as snorkeling in the bay and watching turtles. Condo 108 was well equipped for water and beach activities which we appreciated. Would have liked for some areas of the unit to be a little cleaner which is reason for 4 rather than 5 stars. But overall we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider staying at Kuhio Shores again.

This condo is a gem: a fantastic southern (i.e. sunnier and drier than the north shore) Kauai location, immaculate accomodations, and the unit is right on the ocean (we're talking feet away!). Who wouldn't love to fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves crashing against the shore? The Location: Kuhio Shores is an L shaped building. This unit sits right at the corner in the bend, facing the Hoai Bay but with spectacular views of the the ocean too (furthest from the street). Right outside the condo is a green space/lawn about 20' deep; just beyond that are rocks that lead to the bay. When we were there (early Dec) there were at least half a dozen sea turtles right outside our condo in the bay every day. The fact that this unit is on the ground floor is fantastic because it allows you to use the 20' of lawn beyond as an extension of the lanai. You can move your lounge chairs there if you'd like a bit more sun, etc. Additionally, there is a sandy beach within a short walk on either side of the condo. The neighborhood is great, conducive to lengthy walks with a nice pathway in either direction. One morning we walked to Spouting Horn Park and McBryde Botanical Garden (abt 1.5 mi). There is a great shopping center .7 mi in the other direction. The Complex: Kuhio Shores was fairly quiet during our stay -- mostly couples. Many of the residents would pull their chairs around back, take their glasses of wine, and go watch the sun set in the evening. We highly recommend this! There were 2 grills located at the far end of the parking lot and they worked well. Additionally, there is a restaurant called the Beach House that is adjacent to the complex -- phenomenal views and a fine menu. Try happy hour from 2:30-4:30. One note about the parking lot: There is a small issue with parakeets, thousands of them in the evening and early morning. They are beautiful but messy. Your car will get hit but thankfully the complex has provided easy access to a garden hose and scrubber. The Unit Itself: Clean and well-furnished. The sofas were comfy, the kitchen was fully stocked (beautiful dishes!), and the bathroom was clean and modern. The king-sized bed was surprisingly comfortable and had good quality sheets. There were plenty of towels (bath and beach). There was a hair dryer, but you will need to bring your own shampoo, conditioner, and soap for the shower. We look forward to returning to this little slice of paradise. Mahalo, Emily and Josh!!

The condo is updated with everything you need for a stay. We had a great time in Kauai! Beautiful views. Take note that this condo is on the side of the building, still on the ocean, but facing the little bay rather than truly unobstructed. But you can walk a few steps to watch the sunset on the back of the building! We got to see a few weddings taking place at the restaurant next door during our stay! Bed was comfortable. Shower was not hot, but owner assured me after stay that a plumber is looking into it.
