We had a great time in this unit and definitely will come back to Kauai and stay here. It is located right next to the Beach House with amazing views of the ocean. We enjoyed watching sea turtles and beautiful sunsets from the lanai. The condo was as pictured and clean. Favorite restaurants were the Beach House, Merrimans, and Plantation Gardens. I hated to leave. Beth and Kim Colorado

We spent 11 days at Kuhio Shores #313 condo in 0ctober. It is an awesome place. The minute you open the door you hear that terrific surf. The view from the lanai was spectacular . We spent mornings watching the Green Sea Turtles eating their breakfast in the surf. Then we ended the day on our lanai sipping Piña Coladas made with the Cuisinart blender watching the sunset. The condo is beautifully decorated. Everything you would need to make your visit comfortable is here. Also, it was very clean when we arrived. All the comforts of home are here. Thank you Bob and Meredith for sharing your condo with us. You were so pleasant to work with. Any questions wemhad were quickly answered by you.

My husband and I just returned from the greatest vacation of our lives! Luckily for us we found Kuhio Shores #110...from the moment we walked through the doors, we knew we were "home". The view will absolutely take your breath away each and every time you walk through the door. The condo itself is furnished in a lovely and inviting manner with comfy rattan furniture, wonderfully soothing wall colors, beautiful tile throughout and gorgeous and spacious bathrooms. Everything was there: guide books, a wonderful selection of Hawaiian CD's, binoculars, coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, we truly did not need or want for a thing. The kitchen was fully stocked with all we needed to prepare and serve our meals. Breakfast was always out on the lanai where we watched Braddah Lance "throw his net out into the sea", the turtles popping their heads up and swimming in the cresting waves. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular and how wonderful to simply open the sliding door and walk right out onto the lush lawn. We truly could not have had a more wonderful time. The staff at Kuhio, Robert, Nathan and (another) Robert, were always ready with an Aloha and a smile - so kind and hospitable, while keeping the complex in perfect condition. Mahalo - We will be back!

We rented condo 405A and had an awesome condo and view. There really is no other place on the south shore that is that close to the water. Loved hearing the waves crash against the rocks all night long. The view is much better in the higher floors so floor 3 or 4 is the way to go. Easy walk down to a great public beach. We'll be back.

We stayed at Kuhio Shores # 415 early Sept 2013 to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary along with our developmentally delayed adult daughter. As with most online transactions, we were a little nervous about what to expect but were heartened by the extremely positive reviews from other occupants. When we walked in the door we realized that the internet pictures didn't even do the place justice. It far exceeded our expectations!! The interior and all the furnishings were immaculate, and Mike had provided everything one could possibly think of and more. The kitchen was fully stocked with every utensil and appliance one could want, including nice touches like beautiful place mats, table decorations etc. Mike even provided boogey boards, beach chairs, an ice chest, and beach towels. He has also compiled folders with all the information one could possibly want about the island and its available activities.The view was the best we have ever had, we could almost touch the ocean; every day from our lanai we watched surfers do their amazing tricks, and saw many turtles in both morning and evening feeding right in front of our condo (every day!). In the evening we watched the most stunning sunsets ever from the beautiful lawn in front. EVERYTHING about this unit was perfect and the grounds are meticulously kept clean! Mike even called us in the middle of our stay to see if we needed anything else. What a gracious and kind host! I have never bothered to write a review before, primarily because few places ever exceed my expectations, but this place merits it. It is stunning, beautiful, extremely clean, and had so many nice touches that it felt like home. The place is so nice, we almost didn't feel like exploring the island! You can sunbathe and snorkel (the best spot ever!) right next to the condo. Mike is the most helpful, solicitous owner I have ever come across. Thank you Mike and Sue for letting us enjoy your beautiful condo! It was a dream come true.

DH and I stayed in 113 for a week and we had such a great experience. The owners, John and Janis, were so easy to work with. The condo had everything that I could have ever hoped for and more: beach towels, beach chairs, binoculars, beach gear, etc... It felt like I was a home but with a KILLER view.
We were on the bottom floor and always saw turtles swimming right near our lanai. We sat and watched the surfers every day. I sware that the stars are brighter in Hawaii. Maybe or maybe not but sitting on the lanai at night was so peaceful.
Walking distance to Lawai Beach, the Beach House and the shopping center that houses Merriman's, Bubba's, Lappert's and more. The shopping center is accessible by a sidewalk across the road from the condos. It is also very close to Koloa town. We loved the area and found plenty to do.
As far as having no pool, we did not miss it once while we were there. However, the lack of air conditioning was noticeable the first day. Once we figured out the air flow, etc. it was fine. The grounds are very well kept and I always saw a worker tending to something. The washer and dryers are on each floor and cost 2.00 for each load ( detergent is separate fee). The hours are from 8am-9pm, I think. This is the quietest complex I have ever stayed in. I don't know if that is a testament to the laidbackness of the island, the complex or both. It was just delightful.
When I return to Kauai we will stay at Kuhio Shores. However, I do believe that we will stay on an upper floor. The bottom floor was awesome but it limited the windows, etc that you could leave open for good air flow. Plus, the view of the Turtles, surfers, etc have to be even better from an upper floor.
Can't. Wait. To. Return !!!!

Oh my gosh!..Couldn't have picked a better spot to stay while on a vacation with family for a reunion. We stayed in room 108, on the side of the building facing turtle cove. BEAUTIFUL! Gorgeous sunsets and sunrises while watching the turtles swim and the ocean waves crashing against the rocks. We had a wonderful time sitting out on the lanai drinking our morning coffee or p.m. cocktails. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything and everything. Plenty of towels for bathing and beaching. Honestly, we were all sad when we had to leave for home and cannot wait to go back!! Kuhio shores is centrally located to everything..shopping, dining, beautiful walks on the beach or along the streets lined with gorgeous trees and flowers. Kuhio Shores Condos is the place to stay while in Poipu. We won't stay anywhere else!

The facility also has a coin operated laundry and barbecues!

Room Tip: Great condos from all views..we were on the ground floor, the first condo around the corner from the...
