“Great location & value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2006

We stayed in unit #315 Jan. 24-30, 2006 & it far exceeded our expectations. Plenty of room for a one bedroom with 1 1/2 baths. Excellent view from the balcony for sunrises & view of the ocean across the street. Saw whales several times from our balcony. Awesome place! We would go back in a minute. Excellent location & value for the money.

Spent the 21'st to 28'th of November in unit #106.

Not a bad word to say about this condo.

LOCATION

We could see and hear the ocean from our lanai. (200-300 yards away, across a small street.) We could walk to Lawai beach with fantastic snorkeling in 2 minutes. (I've walked much further staying at beach resorts in Mexico and Cuba.) The drive to Poipu beach is under 5 minutes. To Koloa for groceries is 6-7 minutes. To the airport is around 30 minutes.

UNIT #106

The unit is clean, and ideal for a couple without kids. Nice new Sony flat screen Wega TV, a nice sound system, DVD player, great bed and bedding, and nice furniture makes this a cozy home. The lanai/patio furniture could use renewal.

The kitchen had a full size coffee maker, blender, stove/oven, fridge/freezer and microwave. Very nice table settings, and excellent cookware. We cooked all 7 dinners at home. Excellent fish is cheap to buy fresh in Koloa.

The unit is not air conditioned, but had a huge ceiling fan over the bed. Every window was screened for bugs and opened. Cooling the place for sleeping wasn't an issue with the steady breezes and being so close to the ocean.

Nice extras included a hard cooler which we used daily for all of our beach and road trips, beach chairs, and onsite laundry. The unit even had a small vacuum which helped keep things clean quickly considering all the sand on us from the beach.

We liked being on the ground floor as we were always bringing stuff in and out of the car. It didn't negatively affect our view at all.

The unit is value priced, but is spotlessly clean and very well equiped. Highly recomended, this isn't a budget unit. Thank you to the owners Jack and Dorinda who rented us this condo. Here is their link. -------------------

My husband and I made our first trip to Kauai last month and were very fortunate to stay at the Prince Kuhio - Oct 11th to 18th. We rented unit #211 direct from the owners and we were not disappointed.
On our arrival we found the condo clean and spotless. It was well furnished and equipped with everything to make our stay comfortable. The large bedroom was nicely furnished with a comfortable king-size bed and sitting area. Off the bedroom was the lanai which overlooked the park and also had a view of the ocean. The perfect place to have breakfast each day before touring the island. The entrance and sitting room overlooked a tropical garden complete with koi ponds and a pool.
Although this is an older complex the building, gardens and walkways are well cared for. We would definitely stay at Prince Kuhio #211 when we visit Kauai again.

We spent an enjoyable, restful week in Prince Kuhio unit #211. This is a large one bedroom, with lovely furnishings and a well-stocked kitchen. The bedroom overlooks the park and has an ocean view with a wonderful breeze. We enjoyed the beautiful gardens and relaxed at the pool. Prince Kuhio is nicely located in a quite area close to many activities. We visited a number of nearby beaches, which were not crowded. If you are a jogger, you can run for many scenic miles just by walking out the condo door. Also you can walk to some of the best snorkeling on the island at Lawai Beach.

I was able to book Condo 333 in less then 2 weeks notice after I decided to go to Kauai on a whim. The company I rented the condo through was very accommodating and pleasant. After much internet research, I picked Prince Kuhio Condos for several reasons: location, price, glowing reviews by others and privacy. I was not disappointed when we arrived. The welcome goody bag was a nice touch. Our unit was a studio complete with a small kitchen, air conditioning, iron and cable tv. There were beach towels, silverware and other necessities from previous visitors. It was a more personal vibe then a hotel stay and more importatnly, no bustle. We even got some suggestions for leisure activities from the visitor guest book. The only complaint I had about this cozy studio was the tiny shower. =D But that would not deter me from staying at Prince Kuhio Condos again. We had a great stay.
(One last note, the rambling roosters. They are a fixture on Kauai and are EVERYWHERE.)

We stayed at the Prince Kuhio in Kauai unit #211, it was paradise with the surf nearly at your doorstep and beautiful views of the ocean and mountains. The beach just a few steps from your patio, a park across the street and restaurants within walking distance.

The unit is spacious, clean tastefully furnished and very comfortable. The price is also right. We will definitely go again and hopefully get unit #211.

We booked at the last minute and couldn't believe how lucky we got... this unit has a king bed, internet, cable tv, and everything you might need during your stay. It's updated and clean with plenty of attention to detail. It felt like home (only our home isn't across the street from the best snorkeling on the planet!) We will be back.
