“Beautiful ocean views and sounds in a convenient Kauaʻi location”
Reviewed April 11, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

people found this review helpful

For those who value staying as close to the ocean as possible, Kuhio Shores 314 might be the place for you. Unlike many other Kuhio Shores apartments, 314 has a west-facing corner window in its dining area from which beautiful sunset views can be seen. From its ocean-facing dining area windows and spacious lanai, whales (in season), sea turtles, sea birds, surfers, and stand-up paddle boarders can be seen.

The apartment, furnishings, and kitchen equipment are clean and perfectly acceptable but are not as new, modern, or complete as some other apartments. But then the rental rate isn't as high as some apartments, so you tend to get what you pay for.

The WiFi Internet signal was strong and the bandwidth, fast.

The owner sent the front door key and lockbox combination to us via mail. A second front door key was in the lockbox, so we had 2 front door keys available during our stay which was nice since we were two couples. The owner promptly returned our security deposit upon our departure.

When we plan to return for a Kauaʻi vacation, we hope that Kuhio Shores 314 will be available.

“Beautiful, tranquil, ocean panorama to die for”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

This gorgeous condo gives a protected view of the Pacific lapping to the short just a few feet away from the building. Sitting in the living room one can see nothing but the ocean in all directions. Regularly little need for AC; breezes pass through the unit cooling it quite naturally. Amenities are all in good working order; quiet environment at the building; great restaurant within walking distance for lunch or dinner. Shopping quite accessible. Worth it all for the view alone!

“great location, great condo”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

we had a great stay here - plenty of room for 2 couples and a baby. kitchen had good and plenty of equipment and was well stocked. comfortable bedrooms/bathrooms, spacious living space. location can't be beat - both sunrise and sunset visible from the lanai and windows. walking distance to several beaches, 5-10 minute drive to other bigger beaches. great place to visit many kauai sites. laundry down the hall ($3.50/load including soap). owner mel was always available for questions via phone or email (altho sometimes he seemed like it was a bother). we would certainly stay here again and would recommend.

This condo is heaven on earth. Clean, modern, perfectly furnished and decorated! Our two weeks flew by and we felt we had magically found the best home in the best part on the best island the state of Hawaii has to offer!

Thank you so much - Pearl & Mel - we're already planning our next visit!

The location of the condo is absolutely perfect...right on the water, steps from great snorkeling, and walking distance to wonderful shopping and restaurants. The condo itself is clean with all the necessary amenities and has beautiful views from inside and outside on the lanai. We can't wait to return to #314 again some day!

“To die-for view - like being on a ship”
Reviewed June 5, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

person found this review helpful

We absolutely loved this location and will book again. We spent most of our time hanging out on the lanai, counting sea turtles feeding below us, and watching the surfers and boogie boarders. The snorkeling was excellent--again, sea turtles and fish everywhere. We loved the corner window in the breakfast nook -most units don't have one - that really enhanced the view. I like to jog, and every morning did a loop down to the Spouting Horn, past the Botanical Gardens and harbor. Very scenic. Was worried initially about the lack of air conditioning, but that turned out to be inconsequential. The cross-breeze through the unit was excellent and the ceiling fans kept everything cool. We love the sound of the crashing waves and kept our lanai doors open all night!

“When we first walked in the unit, we just stood there speechless ......”
Reviewed November 4, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

... the view was beyond words!! We wanted to be right at the oceans edge and we were. Kuhio Shores #315 is everything we had hoped for ... wonderfully kept grounds, beautifully appointed unit , great snorkeling, a 'baby beach' just up the road for laying around in the water, magnificent sunrises and sunsets, a whole bunch of green turtles and colorful fish, spinning dolphins and a lanai (patio) that has plexiglass instead of metal bars for railing!! There is nothing to obstruct the view!! We have been to Kauai many times and always stayed on the east shore. Thought nothing could be better than the view we had there until we walked into #315 at Kuhio Shores. Now we have a new favorite and are booked for 2012. If you want to see pictures, go to the web site, www.kuhioshores.net. The owners, Mel and Pearl, are wonderful people who really enjoy sharing their island homes with others.
