About Kuhio Shores 103 Owner

We are a family of 5 who love the beach and enjoy spending time with each other. We met 17 years ago while lifeguards on Southern CA Beaches and now fill our time with our teaching/coaching professions and with our three adventurous children. Together, we especially love surfing, snorkeling (anything in or around the ocean), hiking and traveling.

Kuhio Shores 103 Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why Kuhio Shores 103 Owner chose Kauai

It is island paradise as close to the ocean and sealife as we could find anywhere.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy watching sea turtles swimming around while making breakfast in the kitchen and sighting breeching whales while lounging on the shaded lanai in the afternoon. We also enjoy the freedom of having a groundfloor unit allowing direct access to the beach and ability to spread out the lounge chairs on the lawn. When taking a break from swimming with the turtles and dolphins or exploring nearby beaches & waterfalls, we spend time watching our children look for shells and play in the tidepools while we're on our lanai or inside the property even (we really are that close to the water!)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our week long stay was not long enough. Kuhio Shores #103 exceeded all our expectations. It was immaculately clean, had new furniture and pristine linens. We loved being able to watch the sea turtles swim around in the bay while relaxing on the lanai. The snorkeling just outside the condo was better than anywhere else on the island. We felt so relaxed and pampered at this oceanfront condo. The king bed with new, crisp linens was so comfortable and the hanging, nest chair for reading in the living room was an added bonus. Besides being oceanfront with a feeling of seclusion, the condo was still within walking distance to delicious restaurants and botique shops. Five Stars plus!

Nice condo - great location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a stay at this condo. The condo was well appointed with most everything you'd need for an extended stay. Having wifi was a bonus! Being able to use the beach chairs, mats, and beach towels were great too! The location is perfect - reasonable distance to shops and other beaches, but still far enough away from the hustle and bustle. The sunrise from the lanai is magical. The sunsets were easily viewed by walking around the building. The property owner is great to work with as well. Very prompt in getting back to us. Thank you, Noel. We'd definitely recommend this unit to others. You won't regret it. Thanks for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!

LOVE the location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a vacation on Kauai and stayed in this unit. The location and views doesn't get much better than this...oh goodness...sunrises and sunsets from the same property! We would watch sunrise from the lanai and for sunset, you just walk around the building..it's perfect! We loved that we could just walk out to the grass and look for the turtles in the little cove right there. It's an easy walk up to the market/stores at The Shops at Kukui'ula. Another great place, very short walk, is to Baby Beach, a couple of minutes away...very quiet and great for kids or to watch the sunset from. The unit was comfortable and clean and the only problem we had was with the wifi the first night but received a quick response from the owner on resolving that! It has chair and sand mats for the beach as well as beach towels, so you are set to head out for a day in the sun! It's minimally stocked in the kitchen and there was just salt and pepper for seasonings (we usually bring our own), so just remember that, if you want more, bring some with you. The shower head is not the best, but honestly neither of these are an issue for us, we were on vacation in paradise and were very comfortable there! We will book here again when we return!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be more happy with our choice to stay here! The condo was perfect as a place to relax and hang out, as well as a home base for explorations around the island. The location is fairly private, but still close to beaches, stores, and restaurants. The view out the lanai is stupendous and you can listen to the waves all day and all night.

The condo was neat, clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. It was great to have beach chairs, a cooler, nice beach towels, and more all available to us for our daily adventures. There is even laundry available, which made packing easy.

The cove right outside the lanai is beautiful, and one just around the corner has great snorkeling and areas to sit on sand or beach. From the front door we were 2 minutes away from gorgeous views of the sunset, surfers, and even sea turtles!

Our host was easy to work with, super friendly, and full of enthusiasm for the area. We would definitely stay here again, and have already recommended it specifically to family and friends!

Stunning view

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent place to stay for our first trip to Kauai. We would sit on the lanai in the morning and enjoy the view while deciding what to do for the day. The location is quiet and away from the large resorts in Poipu, but close enough for a good walk or short drive. I also though it was a good central island location as we explored the West side (Waimea) one day and the East/North shore (Kapaa and Hanalei) on another day. We also appreciated some of the amenities available, such as beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, smaller cooler, and ice packs. The only thing my husband complained about was not having a better fan in the bedroom as he is a pretty warm person. Other than that, we would love to visit again. Aloha!

My Favorite!

  • 5 of 5

This is defiantly my favorite place for vacation. I love Kauai, and this condo is on the ground floor within steps of the best snorkeling on the island. The condo is very clean and comfy. I love sitting in the nest hanging chair in the afternoon with a beer.

I will dfinately return here next year!

This is our third time to Kauai and our third time staying at this condo! The condo is extraordinary in that it sits within 100' of the Pacific! We so look forward to brewing our Hawaiian Coffee and sitting on the lanai each morning watching the sky illuminate. We find on each visit this condo to be extraordinarily clean, with all the amenities of home. The kitchen has every utensil one would need, and the king bed, very comfortable. The bathroom is extremely clean, and there are beach toys in the closet! It would appear that the owners take great measure to make their condo extraordinary! We find the island of Kauai to offer all one could want, from great restaurants and shopping, or just for relaxing and swimming with the turtles. We can't wait to return!

Spectacular Snorkeling (best on the island!) just out front of property. Excellent surfing on outside reef--paddleout from property! To literally see our condo on the water, just Google Earth it. (5050 Lawai Raod, Poipu, HI 96756). Off the beaten path, yet walkable to terrific stores, shopping and dining.
