We loved our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. The condo was clean and very well maintained. It has been updated with everything you could want. Of course the view was amazing and we spent a lot of time enjoying watching the surfers and the turtles. We were lucky to have a high surf warning and the waves were 15 + feet high! We did have a few small issues that were addressed immediately which made us very happy! We are so happy we stay here and may come back next time during the whale watching season. Book this condo and you will be very happy!

Waves splashing just steps away from your balcony. What's not to like.

The condo was as good as advertised, which is not always the case. Everything was clean; there was always parking available, and the unit was stocked with everything you needed (though there was a search for a corkscrew). We've been to Kauai 5 times before, but never stayed on the south shore. Since we like to explore the whole island; places we've been before, as well as new places, we were very happy with the convenience to the rest of the island. The balcony was perfect with some wine, and also to eat breakfasts. The 180 degree view of the ocean at your doorstep was great. Our favorite restaurant for dinner was La Spezia in old Koloa town (we had supper there twice), and I heard they serve a good breakfast. The only caveat - plan ahead to snag a reservation!

Unit #212 is everything one could ask for in a condo. The unit is in a perfect location-close to beaches, hikes, restaurants, and shopping. The view from the lanai is spectacular! We especially enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets.

We loved our stay at Bart and Betty’s condo. The location was perfect- so close to beaches, restaurants, shops. I loved running every morning on the path near their house and exploring all the different beaches. We enjoyed all the restaurants and the air conditioner in their unit was clutch! But most of all we loved the view. Right on the ocean we watched the sunset every night and sat on the lanai together every day. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to kick off our honeymoon. Mahalo!

Thanks Betty and Bart. Your place is wonderful and we enjoyed the waves and surfers everyday. Also, the fully appointed kitchen was a great. My husband is already planning for our next trip so we can continue to explore this lovely island.

We definitely enjoyed our time! The only negative thing was when we walked in we were greeted by a very large (but thankfully dead) cockroach and some other sort of large, dead bug that had a lot of legs which made me paranoid the rest of the trip. But the view was amazing we loved watching all of the turtles in front of us and all of the local surfers.

We had a wonderful stay at Betty's condo! The location is perfect and just as advertised...right on the water! The condo was spotless and very well appointed with everything we could possibly need. We travel a lot and this place is up there with the best of them!! Betty made this effortless and we will be back soon! Thanks Betty!!!!

Our stay was as advertised, clean, well-provisioned and recently remodeled in a tasteful manner. They obviously care for the unit as a residence more than a rental. Location was perfect for snorkelling, dining and for exploring the south island and points west. Betty was responsive and most pleasant to interact with. If I get back to Kauai I would try to coordinate a stay in #212 again!

This great condo, perfect for two people, has the ocean right out there -- a stone's throw off the lanai, with the sound of crashing surf being the backdrop for everything else. We found the place easily and got the key with no trouble following the detailed instructions emailed to us before we even left home. Parking was easy and the elevator to the second floor was usually right there when we needed it. When the staff person for the building was present, he was always courteous, professional, and helpful. The condo itself was nicely furnished, up to date kitchen and bath, comfortable bed with very nice bed linens and pillows. The AC units worked easily and well when needed. We enjoyed the comfortable chairs out on the lanai as well as the breakfast nook. What a view! One evening we walked over to the Beach House for dinner and were seated right away, even without a reservation, out on the patio with a perfect view of the sunset. The restaurant deserves its great reputation! In general, staying in the PoiPu area was a good decision. We could easily drive to other places wanted to see. Oh yes -- thanks for the use of your great beach chairs! As it turns out, we didn't cook meals in the condo, but it seems like a great, functional kitchen. The only point I might make, maybe for your future reference, was that there is a good coffee maker in the condo but no coffee. We arrived late, after stores were closed, so we had to get up and going early the next morning to find someplace to eat, then get to a grocery store to have coffee for the following morning. I'm sure not everyone is as dependent on the first cup of coffee as I am (!), and maybe I should have brought my own that being the case, but even one pot's worth of coffee, or even some instant, would have been appreciated. Other than that, we are thankful that we found your place and that it was available for our dates. We would love to return sometime and enjoy Kauai all over again! Mahalo! -- Margaret and Lee

This was not our first visit to Kauai and this condo, and continues to be one of our favorites in Hawaii. As folks have said previously, the accommodations are excellent, and the views simply awesome. Everything we needed was supplied. We ate in most nights, grabbing some local seafood and grilling it up. The kitchen is well stocked with herbs and spices. Beach chairs and towels were supplied. The condo is equipped with efficient mini-split A/C units in both bedroom and main living area, though we did not need it. Ala in all we had a great time and will most certainly be back

Unit 212 is a fabulous, absolute waterfront apartment, where we spent many hours sitting on the verandah watching surfers catch waves, green turtles swim slowly past, and even a pod of Dolphins leaping out of the ocean! The apartment is beautifully furnished, the kitchen is generously supplied with everything we needed to cook at home, and there were even beach towels and snorkeling gear available for guests to use. Kauai is a beautiful, relaxing place, and we felt we were staying in one of the best places on this wonderful island.

My wife and I stayed in Kuhio Shores #212 and had a phenomenal time! Where do I even begin. First off, the view from the balcony is breath taking and gives you a perfect view of some great Hawaii surf! The condo is so close to the water that the sound of the waves is the perfect way to soothe you to sleep. The condo has everything you would want in it: kitchen, fridge, couch, etc. The shower is great and the bed is super comfy. More than anything we loved the location of it. It is minutes away from the grocery store, great dining locations, and incredible beaches. The best snorkeling we did in Kauai was 5 minutes from this place! It was so nice to be able to leave and be at a beach in no time. It is also walking distance to the best meal we had in Kauai, The Beach House. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We absolutely would recommend this place to others, and hope we get the chance to stay there again!

This condo has a great central location for day traveling all areas of the island. We were able to explore the island and enjoy coming "home" to the condo. Betty and Bart have done an excellent job at providing everything needed from a functional kitchen, to lunch coolers, and beach chairs. We saw turtles, and surfers daily from the lanai. Highlights around the area included Shipwreck Beach, Spouting Horn, and Makauwahi Cave. Plenty of restaurants and shopping in the area.

Just a quick note to thank you so much for letting us stay in your condo at Kuhio Shores. It was wonderful. We have stayed in a number of different units over the last 18 years and I must say that yours was absolutely the nicest. All the little touches you added....the champagne, the coffee, the mac nuts added so much to our stay. We have always stayed in 2 bedroom units but your unit seemed so much more spacious because of the updates you have added. We also appreciated having comfortable furniture. I can't tell you what a difference between the chairs and couch in your unit and in other places we have stayed. We have probably rented from 6 or 7 different owners over the years and this year was absolutely the best. Thank you again for a wonderful stay on the "garden Island"

My husband and I just spent 10 wonderful days at Kuhio Shores #212 and we couldn't be happier! The condo is amazing and the pics capture the condo perfectly. We loved being on the second floor with a panoramic view of the pacific ocean in front of us. Every morning we had our coffee and breakfast on the lanai and enjoyed seeing whales breach and an occasional sea turtle pop up. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything needed to make meals, including spices and the condo has 2 nice BBQs for renters to enjoy. I did buy paper plates and napkins to make life a little easier. We spent many days snorkeling at the crescent beach right next door to the condo and we appreciated the beach chairs, towels, rattan mats and even sunscreen that were there for us to use. The condo does not have AC, but does have ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room plus 2 additional fans to use if needed. Betty was quick to respond to all inquiries and left detailed contact numbers if we needed assistance, which we never did. We enjoyed our stay in #212 so much that we've already booked our next trip in 2018! Aloha!

We just spent a wonderful week in this beautiful condo. Not only is Kuhio Shores an ideal location on Kauai: only a few meters from the oceanfront but also close to two snorkelling beaches and right next door to the lovely Beach House restaurant. Contact with the owners before the trip was easy and the condo really is immaculate and beautifully furnished: a home away from home. The place is very well equipped with everything you need for cooking and beach use. We saw whales from the lanai, went to have dinner (with a sunset view) in the Beach House restaurant and snorkelled from Beach House beach - where we also saw a Monk seal. We also made the self-guided tour in McBryde Gardens (having done Allerton Gardens a few years back) and got smoothies every day from Riptide's. We have stayed in Kuhio Shores before and would never stay anywhere else on Kauai - we only hope to come back in a few years to condo 212 (long way from Germany, alas). We definitely recommend staying here!

Condo #212 at Kuhio Shores made our stay in Kauai very enjoyable and relaxing. It was such a treat to sit on the lanai in the mornings and drink our coffee while listening to the waves crash on the shore. We saw sea turtles two mornings and one day saw whales spouting in the distance. A shopping center with numerous restaurants, a grocery store, drug store and other shops is less than three minutes away. Several great golf courses are nearby as well. The cross flow of ventilation kept things cool, but I would have preferred a/c in the bedroom for sleeping.

Imagine the perfect vacation rental accommodations; that is what we found at Betty and Bart's condo, #212 at Kuhio Shores. Kuhio Shores is a quiet and clean facility located directly on the Pacific coast with coin laundry and ample parking. Many restaurants and shopping are within an easy 10 minute walk. Even more shopping, dining and entertainment options are within a 5 minute drive to Koloa or Poipu. Kuhio Shores is an L-shaped facility. Bart and Betty's condo faces south with a full view of the Pacific. WOW, what a view! We watched turtles bobbing around the rocks below us and saw dolphins and migrating whales from the comfort of the condo balcony. The condo was clean, clean, clean and beautifully furnished. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen is a cook's dream. We appreciated the available beach chairs and high-quality beach towels. From luxury linens to beautiful dishes, it is obvious that this condo is lovingly maintained by owners who care about the comfort of their guests. With so many accommodation options on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Kaua'i, making a selection can be overwhelming. But, let me make it easy for you; choose Kuhio Shores #212. You won't be disappointed.

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.

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.
