Bedrooms 2
Space 1,000 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 - 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

ON THE OCEAN condominium with awesome views. SURF - SNORKEL - SUNBATH - SIGHT SEE - or SIMPLY relax.

The minute you step in the door you are welcomed by the most spectacular view of the beautiful and tropical Pacific Ocean. We are directly facing the ocean!

We've just installed Air Conditioning (April/2017) to help insure a comfortable stay. The wonderful thing about being 30 feet from the water is that you can open the windows and doors, feel the trade winds blow through the condo and hear the crashing surf. This is the Hawaii experience and thankfully our condo offers such an experience. For those occasional days and nights where the winds are not blowing or it's just too hot, we now have AC to cool the condo making it an even more perfect place to vacation.

This is a recently remodeled (June 2014) two bedroom, 2 bath condo that sleeps 6. There is a King Size Bed in the master, a Queen size bed in the second bedroom and a Queen sofa bed in the living area. We are on the second floor (with elevator close by) which allows for a seamless connection between the condo and the ocean below. The ocean is directly in front of you. You are floating over the Waves and the blue waters of the Pacific as far as you can see. Offers great privacy as no other units can see into your space.

With Floor to Ceiling and Wall to Wall Windows, watch the sea, surfers and turtles from the Living room, Dining room or Lanai. Whales go by in the winter months. The Turtles feed almost every day directly in front. Sunbathe or enjoy one of the islands best snorkeling locations at the beach right next to the condo which offers both grass and sand. There is also a wonderful walk up the road to see the island's blow hole. Between the spectacular views and sunsets and the soothing sound of the waves, you are instantly transformed into vacation mode.

The kitchen is newly remodeled with new flooring, cabinets, granite counter tops and new appliances. It's fully furnished with everything you need to cook in or enjoy a drink or dinner from one of the islands best restaurants and bars, The Beach House, which is located right next door.

Both the en suite bath and shower and the hall second bath have been fully remodeled. The hall bath has double sinks and both have custom tile work with premium finishes.

Our custom art work on the walls adds to the Hawaiian feel. You are not in a typical rental.

There are also BBQ's on site for your use. There is a new Flat Screen TV in the living area and both Cable and Wireless Internet are provided. With a smart TV, Netflix is built in and available for your use. There is a parking lot for easy access, allowing one car per unit..

The popular tourist areas of Poipu are just a mile or so away, as well as the historic town of Koloa and the grocery store. The Shops at Kukui'ula are an easy walking distance with many fine restaurants, ice cream and shopping.

Welcome to our favorite place. Enjoy the peace, relaxation and adventure the island of Kauai brings.

About Karen Ness

My husband and I love the ocean. We are always amazed at the ocean's ability to calm and relax us the minute we step in the door.

Karen Ness purchased this condo in 2003

Why Karen Ness chose Poipu

We came on vacation and after staying at Kuhio Shores knew we wanted to own a condo there. We love Kauai and the condo location is just perfect. There is no other building on the island like it. Being only 30 feet from the ocean and watching the waves and the turtles from both the sofa and the lanai is mesmerizing. We love it. Now has Air Conditioning!

What makes this condo unique

We love how the living, dining and kitchen areas of the condo directly face the ocean. With floor to ceiling windows and mirrors on the side walls, the ocean views come in from all angles. On the second floor, you are floating over the waves.

Great View! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed staying in this waterfront condo. The sound of the surf is mesmerizing, and the view is stunning. We enjoyed awesome snorkeling at the beach near the Beach House Restaurant, which is an easy walk from this condo. The beach chairs, towels, cooler and umbrella at the condo made beach visits very comfortable. The condo itself is also comfortable! We found the information and photos provided by the owners to be accurate. We wish we'd brought binoculars with us to better admire the turtles. That is our only regret! We definitely would book this condo again.

Amazing view and location

  • 4 of 5

The view from the family room, kitchen and patio of this unit is amazing!! We loved the beauty that was so visible from the living areas of this unit. We enjoyed walking out on the rocks and watching for sea turtles. The location was wonderful and we really enjoyed morning runs up and down the road along the coast. The master bedroom however was very disappointing. There is not an actual master bath. Rather there is a shower in the master bedroom. It is not adequately ventilated and thus we chose not to use it, and our whole family used the hall bathroom. There also was so much dust by the master toilet room and in the bedrooms. This might not be noticed by some, but our family has allergies and asthma, so it was concerning. The AC was adequate, but at night the family room where our son slept got cold while the bedrooms were hard to get cool. Choose this unit for its view and location, not for its sleeping arrangements.

Owner's Response: While we have so many good reviews and so many happy guests, we know that everyone's perspective is different. I do wish this guest would have contacted us. Each item was easily addressed and mostly fixable. We are very reachable and recommend any guest to just please contact us if there is anything that needs our attention. Our maid is in the building daily and can help. The air conditioning easily cools down both the living and the bedrooms on separate units. I'm guessing they had the settings incorrect. And for the master bath, this is how the units were built. It’s an open island feel that actually allows for better ventilation than your typical bath. Open the windows for 5 minutes or turn on the air and you’re ventilated. The master shower is newly built and spacious, A wonderful place to shower.

Wonderful Location with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful week on Kauai and loved this condo in Kuhio Shores. The Poipu location was the best and the views from the lanai were gorgeous. The condo was well appointed with everything we needed and the best part is that beach towels, chairs, umbrella and boogie boards were all there for us to use as well! Would definitely recommend a stay here and would go again in a heartbeat!

Ultimate oceanfront vista.

  • 5 of 5

The expansive sea view is enhanced by wall mirrors, giving a very spacious feel. There is endless audio-visual entertainment with waves crashing below, surfers playing on the reef, and turtles surfacing in front. Next door, little Lawa’i Beach provides adequate swimming and very good snorkelling. (For the ultimate swimming beach, drive a mile east and park behind the Sheraton Hotel.) The condo is tastefully-equipped with modern conveniences, comfortable furnishings, and nice artwork. Excellent ventilation throughout provide a gentle cross-breeze. Bedrooms are located at the back so the sound of the surf is dampened, making for good sleep. The owner is responsive and helpful. Our experience was fun and relaxing.

The views from this condo are absolutely gorgeous! There was always something new to see... surfers, turtles, dolphins, snorkelers, boats, sunsets, and waves. The condo was well stocked with towels, beach towels, kitchen supplies, travel books, etc. We used the A/C on our first night, then figured out that the combination of opening the bedroom windows a bit, as well as opening the dining room window and leaving the front door open (screen door closed) allowed for a great cross breeze. We had six in our group and used both bedrooms and the pull-out sofa sleeper which was fine for our teenage boys. This was a great location to access the rest of the island and is definitely on the "sunny side". We wish we had spent more time just relaxing and taking in the view, but it was our first time in Kauai so we had to see the sights! Thank you Karen for sharing your place with us! Mahalo!
