We loved this property. Top floor view of the bay and great view. Everything is provided, everything is though about. This included the small things like small cooler, Tupperware, among other necessities. The property is kept cool with many many fans to keep you comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay and would come back again!

Love this place, locatio, and view. It is nicely appointed, very clean, and the kitchen is well stocked if you like to cook, which I do. The unit is very quiet unless you have the windows open when the swarms of green, long tailed parakeets roost in the palm trees at dusk or depart at dawn. It is quite a sight to see. But, the growing population may be worrisome for the farmers. Owners Nancy and Douglas are great and communicate well. There are fewer crowds here compared to Hotel row down Poipu Road. Snorkeling is adjacent to the condo as is a beachfront restaurant and snorkeling rentals. You can walk to the shops, grocery and drug stores, and great restaurants at Kukui’ula, an upscale center just down the road. The condo faces the east, nice for sunrises which keeps the place cooler in the afternoon. If you want to watch the sunset, just walk outside to the west facing ocean and there you have it! Should you need air-conditioning, the units in the living space and bedroom work great and are very quiet. There is good cross airflow from the ocean to the bedroom making air conditioning for sleeping, unnecessary. There is a private, outdoor shower to rinse off after going to the beach. Another really nice feature is a hose with a spray nozel outside the staircase to the condo. Our white convertible car appreciated a rinse after driving in rainy weather. My husband and I would highly recommend staying here.

Perfect condo for us. Great view of the ocean and lovely lanai to use and view it. Kitchen was perfect with extras we hadn’t expected: spices, ice all ready, every pot and pan you could imagine. I needed to use the pull out sofa and they provided extra pillows blankets sheets towels. Thank you. It was actual ok to sleep on after a full day of activities. The beach nearby was amazing and best snorkeling. Tv was great esp for the nfl games! Would absolutely recommend this unit.

We came to Kauai to get married and were very pleased with the condo and property. The location is close to shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, and beaches. The condo was very clean and the bed was so comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need including a coffee maker, toaster, lots of dishes and pots and pans. We ate out most of our meals except breakfast and enjoyed coffee every morning on the lanai watching the sun come up. There are many restaurants near the property and most within walking distance. We walked next door the The Beach House for dinner and to watch the sunset. The beach chairs, towels and cooler were most appreciated as we used them at Poipu beach and Shipwreck beach which are both a short distance away. Nancy was very good at returning my emails with questions before and during our week stay. I would highly recommend staying here.

The listing doesn't do this place justice. The location is perfect. Right next to a bay full of Sea Turtles that we watched daily and on the Southern point where you can view beautiful sunsets. The Condo complex was not a large vacation resort which made it more intimate and private. The Condo itself was clean and cozy. We will be staying here again if we come back to Kauai!

The property was centrally located on Kauai and had a beautiful sunrise view overlooking the ocean. It was clean and well maintained, and very comfortable. A bonus was that this unit had air conditioning. The expected supplies were available, and the towels and bedding were wonderful. We were in communication with the owners who provided wonderful suggestions on where to go and what to see, and they checked in with us right after we arrived to make sure all was fine. We really enjoyed our stay in this unit, and would highly recommend it to any couple!

My Wife and I just spent the first four days of our honeymoon at this property and it was perfect! The place is very comfortable and has everything you need and more. It is in an excellent location close to walking distance to the beach and shorting driving distance to shops, restaurants, and popular sights on the south shore. There are beach towels, chairs, and cooler to use which was a great. The A/C is great to have at night and after coming back from a day of adventures. Highly recommend!!

Very clean, a great home base on the island. Right on the water, the view is lovely. Very close to a great snorkeling beach and a quick drive to poipu beach as well. Was grateful for the air conditioning. Highly recommend!

We very much enjoyed staying in condo 402. It was in very good condition, and everything was thought of and provided. Good location in the complex, as there was no foot traffic by the condo. The ‘hole’ in the wall was great and enabled good breezes; we never used the airconditioning.

We had such a lovely stay at this condo during our time on the south side of Kauai! The condo is in a wonderful location right on the water and close to all the places you want to visit; it is the perfect place for a couple - cozy with island-inspired decor and plenty of room for two people - and is equipped with beach chairs and towels. Just before sunset we saw turtles near the rocks from the condo lanai - so amazing! The host, Nancy, also bears mentioning; she was an absolute pleasure to deal with! Nancy provided us with food and sight-seeing recommendations before arriving, and everything in the condo was as she described. We were very happy with our stay and would definitely come back here next time we visit Kauai! Mahalo Nancy for such a wonderful experience!

The ad for this rental says it all. Great view, nice one bedroom condo in a good location on Kauai's south shore. The condo has everything needed for a nice stay. The coastline in front of the unit really isn't a beach, but a short walk behind the unit is a sandy beach. The view is incredible. Having air conditioning is really nice for sleeping on warm nights. This was a great base to explore the island for the week we stayed there.

We have stayed in Kuhio Shores #402 on several occasions over the last several years. The condo, location, and views are terrific. It is peaceful and relaxing if one is looking for that. Doug and Nancy are very accommodating and responsive with answers to questions. If Kauai travel is in our future plans, we would definitely consider this unit again. Thank you Doug and Nancy!

We loved our stay at this condo, which is in a great location next to a wonderful snorkeling beach. The condo had everything we needed to make great meals, was very clean and comfortable, and the A/C works super well! Nancy was a sweet host and even got us a welcome gift to help us celebrate our anniversary and my birthday. One thing I didn't realize when booking is that while the condo is definitely oceanfront, and has the beautiful view pictured, you can also see and hear the road. We still very much enjoyed our breakfasts on the lanai watching the sea turtles swimming below, but something to be aware of if you're expecting to not see civilization.

The condo is beautiful! It was immaculately clean when we arrived and shows pride of ownership. Everything is fresh, up to date, and in good taste. Owners are very organized and all information you will need is easily available. The condo is stocked with many extras, but not so many items that it feels cluttered. The only thing I would change would be to swap out the ceiling fans with ones that include lights. The bedroom in particular is pretty dark. Otherwise rent with confidence. I am pretty picky and was very happy with this condo. Mahalo!

My husband and I stayed here in September as part of our honeymoon. We were island hopping and stayed in Kauai for about a week. We couldn't have asked for a better stay! The location is great. Close to Poipu Beach, wonderful snorkeling, and the island is small enough where you can do day trips like we did to the north shore (hikes in Napali, Ke'e Beach) and Waimea Canyon State Park. Plus you get all the comforts of home. I appreciate that they had AC and the beautiful views. I spotted a turtle my first day! Nancy was also easy to talk to and helpful. Wouldn't change a thing! Thanks!

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the penthouse. Great to watch the turtles going up and down in the waves, and the full moon reflecting in the water was amazing. The air conditioner was working real well and we had everything we needed. Thank you Nancy and Dough

My hubby and I stayed in this unit (402) for a week in March and we were very happy with both the location on Kauai, south of Koloa near Poipu, as well as the location in the apartment complex. It does not face directly onto the ocean but rather onto a small bay (per the picture). It was so tranquil sitting out on the lanai. The owner has marked everything clearly so every question you may have is answered already without ambiguity. The condo location is close to both shops and restaurants and Poipu Beach is a short car ride. There is outdoor parking for the unit. There is both air-conditioning and ceiling fans to keep you cool and, if you follow the instructions provided, you can even have the trade-winds blowing through the condo. Our only negative, and this is minor; there is only a pay-for-use, shared laundry on each floor of the condo building. This didn't really affect us as we only stayed for a week. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

Love the water views from the lanai; great location for walking; condo equipped with all the comforts of home. Small bathroom but nicely updated; everything you need in the kitchen (also updated). Missed that bldg had no pool; nearby beaches rocky and only good for snorkeling. Very clean.

We enjoyed our stay at the condo so much! We are really busy people so we just used the condo to sleep and shower. I would wake up every morning to watch the sunrise & turtles out front it was pretty amazing. I did address some concerns directly with Jane which I believe are housekeeping issues. We will definitely return!
