This exceptional oceanfront Penthouse is located on the sunny, south shore of Hawaii's Garden Island in Poipu. This beautifully remodeled, luxurious condo is just 30 feet from the ocean's edge. It offers 180-degree ocean, coastline and mountain views from the lanai, kitchen and living room. Wake up to the warmth of the magical morning sunrise over the coast and drift off to sleep each night with the sights and sounds of the waves pounding at your doorstep. Enjoy watching the many Sea Turtles feeding on the reefs below you while lounging on your private lanai. This is Hawaii at its best. Kuhio Shores is centrally located in Poipu and if it was any closer to the water, you would be wet! Directly out front of your lanai is some of Kauai's premier surfing and snorkeling spots. Five additional beaches are located within walking distance, as are golf courses, tennis, restaurants, shopping and the spectacular Spouting Horn blow hole. This beautiful Penthouse is a showcase of quality and professional tropical design, with rich hand crafted Brazilian Cherrywood, Jen Air appliances, warm travertine stone flooring and beautiful granite countertops. An LCD/DVD and AC are also some of its features. A few of the exceptional amenities include an inviting, spacious floor plan. This floor plan is the largest unit in Kuhio Shores and sleeps 6 with a King Bed in each of the 2 bedrooms plus a sofa sleeper in the living room and an additional blow up mattress with all linens provided. We even include beach chairs, beach towels and cooler for guests! Watch the sunset from the world renowned Beach House restaurant which is just steps away from your condo. Enjoy watching the turtles feed just below your lanai or do some snorkeling directly outside. Did we mention air conditioning? Your rental comes with access to Poipu Beach Athletic Club which has a pool, water slide for the kiddies and a hot tub as well as full workout facilities. It's just a few minutes away. What are you waiting for? Book your Island Paradise vacation NOW!
Kuhio Shores is maybe the only building in the area that is actually at the water’s edge. So the view is great and you have the constant sound of the ocean. This unit has a great view of the turtle feeding area on the rocks below. The keyless entry makes it easy to go snorkeling and not have to figure out what to do with a key. The bathroom just off the entrance makes it easy to keep sand out of the unit when you return from the beach.

Property was as listed and described. Comfortable furniture, well stocked kitchen and air conditioning when it got hot. Fantastic views from the balcony and the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks below was tremendous. Heather was responsive and very helpful. She even called us to tell us about leaving our Kindle and offered to bring back mainland and ship to us. Would definitely recommend! Thanks Heather, Jim

We had such a great stay here! The rooms were a great size for the four of us, very spacious. We were able to enjoy home cooked meals in the open kitchen and enjoy them either at the dining table or outside to over look the beautiful view.

Property is well maintained and has outstanding ocean views. Owners are responsive and have created a tasteful and functional space. While this is advertised for four to six people, this condo can really only comfortably handle two couples or parents with two same sex children. It was an unexpected surprise our first night when the fold out couch was unusable and the option was an inflatable air mattress. All that considered, would stay there again (as soon as the bed is fixed!)

The condo was really good. It would have been nice to have shower gel in the showers and coffee to make a cup on arrival, but those are minor details.

Great location with a clean and comfortable condo just a walk to the beach. Balcony overlooks the crashing waves to wake up to and finish off a night. Convenient location to stores and restaurants and many beaches. While there is no pool, we didn't miss it a bit and adventured to beaches all over the island. The condo was stocked with a cooler, boogie boards, masks, snorkels, towels and beach chairs and an umbrella so perfect for day trips all over the island. Also convenient for those with kids being a 3 minute drive to Baby Beach and Poipu State Park (maybe 6 minutes to latter) and their protected beaches, as the most walk-able beach was likely too strong for small swimmers such as in our crew. Owners were attentive and responsive to a request for a missing household item and returned the deposit promptly. Overall the condo and island were paradise and look forward to our next visit!

We enjoyed staying in this oceanfront condo. Beautiful view, especially from the balcony of the huge sea turtles that live in the water below. Great location! Restaurants and shopping center are within walking distance. The air conditioning units and ceiling fans were a plus!

Wonderful, clean, quiet condo! The view is amazing. Waking up everyday to the most beautiful sunrises was incredible. Turtles swimming and feeding in the bay every day was a treat. The only sounds one hears are of the ocean waves. Unit is fully stocked for your cooking needs. Beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards, straw mats and beach towels provided. The grounds are beautiful and not a speck of litter anywhere. The complex is equipped with elevators in case you or a travel partner have mobility issues. Also, there are two propane style BBQ's at the north west area of the complex in case one feels like cooking up some local fish, etc. Lawai Beach is right next door and offers fantastic snorkeling. Beach House restaurant is also next door, which has fantastic food and drinks. Also very close to shopping mall. You cannot go wrong with unit 407. I didn't want to leave!!

Great condo...couldn't be in a better spot. Has everything you need for inside and outside. An oceanfront condo complex is hard to find in Kauai.The entire complex sits feet from the ocean. It's a small complex that's clean and quiet. Inside the condo was clean and decorated nicely, With plenty of extras.

We stayed in this beautiful condo in August to celebrate my daughter's wedding. The décor and amenities created the perfect relaxing vacation. The balcony overlooks the cove next door, and we were thrilled to see our turtle neighbors every day. This location is a short walk or drive to so many adventures: snorkeling, touring, eating, shopping, etc. At the end of the day, we were so happy to arrive "home" to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, with nothing but the sound of the ocean to sleep by. I look forward to our next trip to Kauai and a return visit to this beautiful Hawaiian retreat.

We had such a tough time picking a place to stay in Kauai with all the different condos and hotels there. We wanted something close to the beach and suitable for 6 people that have never been to Kauai before. After reading all of the reviews about Rick and Kathy's place at Kuhio Shores, we decided to give it a try. Both Rick and Kathy were so friendly and easy to work with. When we arrived at the condos it exceeded our expectations. Everything inside the condo is so unique and beautifully decorated. The lanai was our favorite part because we got to watch the sun rise every morning and watch the turtles swim below. There is a beach right out front that is perfect for snorkeling or just laying out. There are a lot of cool shops and very good restaurants all within walking distance. Since it is on the sunny side of the island it only lightly rained once and it didn't even last an hour. We stayed in the condo for a week and it was the best vacation I have ever been on. We will definitely be returning in the future! Thanks Rick and Kathy! -The Scott's

We recently returned from our best family vacation ever! We knew that we wanted to be by the water in a condominium and we could not have picked a better location. The views were gorgeous and we could just step outside and watch the surfers and snorkel with the sea turtles. The sunsets right outside were so beautiful each night--lots of photo opportunities! The condo had plenty of room for our family of 5 and the kitchen was very nicely stocked if you like to cook. I'm not sure how long ago the unit was updated but everything looked brand-new and it was very clean when we arrived. It was very peaceful and quiet at night--we slept with all the windows open. We walked to the new Kukui'ula shopping center where there was an incredible gourmet farmer's market on Wednesday nights. Don't miss the gelato from Papalani in the Poipu Village shopping center. We also enjoyed dinner at Roy's there--we ordered all the appetizers and small plates to share--a fun way to try lots of different flavors. If you like gardens, the guided tour of Allerton Garden is a must and is only about a mile or two from the condo. We also took surfing lessons and all five of us, ranging from 16 to 50 yrs old, managed to get up and ride some waves--so don't be afraid to try it! We can't wait to return! Thanks, Rick and Kathy
