Koloa, Kauai, Hawaii
A lovely, fourth floor condo on the water's edge over looking the turtles on Poipu Beach....Relaxing and exciting with all the comforts of home. Our condo recently remodeled is comfortable and very clean and can accomodate four adults. (There is one bedroom with queen bed and in the front room a second, very comfortable queen, murphy bed hidden in a closet). Cool porcelain floors throughout condo. Kauai is like 'being in the country surrounded by water'. Guests watch sea turtles swimming directly in the water below from the front room, dining and lanai areas. The Kuhio Shores building is very unique because of its' location to the water with about 30 feet of grass between the building and t...

Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in April 2018

My sister and I rented this condo for a long weekend in April. The pictures really do not do this place justice. It is light/bright, clean and very well stocked for beach activities (we didn't have to buy anything for the beach!). The beds were comfortable and everything was well maintained/in very good condition. The building is very quite and...

We've stayed at a number of different units at Kuhio Shores over the years. We keep returning to KS -- an L-shaped 4-story bldg with about 100 apartments -- because of its location, on a little promontory surrounded by the Pacific about 25 feet from the building. The sound of the surf crashing on the sea wall is pervasive and...
