NOTE: in August 2019 (not sure of exact dates) there will be painting and renovation on the building's ocean-facing facade: if you are booked in our condo on nights when scaffolding is in front of our lanai, we will discount your rate.
Spectacular ocean sounds and views, on the side of Kuhio Shores where the giant sea turtles hang-out, lanai faces trade-winds for constant comfort, 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.
Note that I'm getting booking requests for winter 2020/21, >24 months in advance, so have blocked those dates currently, and will give priority to repeat guests. Come August (16 months ahead), I'll solidify that schedule, and open what remains for everybody else.
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.
Why settle for less direct access to the beach? From the upper floors, beach access is through the elevators and parking lot. 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, 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 in walking distance.
Kuhio Shores 106 is a great location! This one bedroom, one bath, unit will be your home away from home.
Our condo is distinctive with its beautiful native artwork, shell collections, hand-crafted woodwork, 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.
Open the windows and listen to the ocean waves lull you to sleep.
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.
We're on the first floor, so you're not confined to an upper floor where the elevator or stairs (and a walk through the parking lot) are necessary to get to the beach. From our lanai, you can spread-out onto the immaculately kept lawn and enjoy unconfined beach access.
