This unit is at the corner and has wonderful view (PK bay on one side and the ocean on the other). When you are stuck in the unit (like waiting on your teenage kids to get ready), you can be watching for turtles, snorklers, and surfers or just the beautiful waves or just enjoying steady breeze on the lanai. We saw 2-3 rainbows from the unit during our stay, and we also saw a seal sunning itself on the sun by the condo lawn. We snorkeled next to the condo...lots of turtles closer than we would ever imagine! We hiked the nearby Mahaulepu Beaches. Anyway, this was the last leg of our 3 week vacation so eating out was getting tiring, and this unit had everything to cook with (common grills available - they looked clean so we didn't mind cooking our food on them). The unit is a one bedroom with a comfy king size bed. The queen sleeper in the livingroom was comfortable enough for our 2 kids. The unit was spacious enough for the 4 of us (yes, 1 bathroom was not fun with 2 teenagers who are used to having their own bathroom but it was manageable). This condo is in a great central spot to see all of Kauai! It was a quick drive to the west for Napali boat tour, Kokee, and Waimea Canyon and to the east side for coastal bike ride, snorkeling, waterfall jumping, and pretty beaches. Going to north shore for hiking and pretty beaches was a little far ... about 1 1/2 hr drive each way ... but it was worthwhile because staying at Kuhio Shores #309 was so wonderful. We watched the sunset from the condo lawn a couple of evenings as we enjoyed our drinks....beautiful! The McCartins keeps their unit so tidy and clean and have their rental system down so it was easy getting the key from/to them.
