Amazing Oceanfront Condo
Our family stayed at Kuhio Shores 410 in January 2012, and had an absolutely amazing time. The condominium is beautiful- wonderfully furnished, exquisitely clean, and what a view!!! We spent hours on the lanai enjoying the breathtaking view. We cannot wait to return very soon!!!
The Mersberger family
Stayed here for 6 days with my husband and 2 daughters (20 and 22 yrs). All of us loved our time here. Condo itself is beautifully decorated, well-stocked, and immaculate. Location couldn't be beat...right next door to wonderful snorkeling beach, tons of great restaurants and shops. We spent every morning watching the sunrise from our balcony (gorgeous), saw sea turtles every day, and went to sleep every night on super-comfy beds with the sound of ocean waves in the background. The owners were very responsive to our needs and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. We couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous spot, or a more relaxing stay.
Wow! Great place to stay! Highly recommended!
My husband and I stayed here for a week for our 15th wedding anniversary. We just loved the condo - it was donely extremely well - it immediately felt like you were home. We enjoy all the seas turtles everyday and snokeling right by the condo. We even saw a beach front wedding at the Beachhouse next door! Highly recommended!! I would give the condo 10 stars out of 10!! The Viemonts
Amazing views from this luxury residence
We walked into a spotless luxury condo with an amazing views of not just the Pacific Ocean, but the also the mountains too. We had excellent viewings of the sea turtles in their habitat, saw dolphins in the distance, surfers, and shooting stars all in one day. Sunrises and sunsets are awesome too! The kitchen was well equipped and stocked. This rental offers, beach chairs, an umbrella, and a cooler so you really need only bring sunglasses, a swimsuit and sunblock. The bed was super comfortable with the sounds of the waves crashing on the lava rocks to relax and rest. The welcome packet made this trip super easy with directions, recommendations, etc...
In addition, next door is one of the best snorkeling locations and one of the most romantic restaurants on the island. Nearby are delicious eateries and shops. In close proximity are Poipu and the Sheraton beaches.

Wonderful vacation experience
Very comfortable, beautifully furnished, well equipped and everything in working order. A home away from home without any frustration of having to "make-do" with things that just aren't quite right. The whole condo complex is beautifully maintained. The location is fabulous, just as we expected from the photos and website, right on the ocean.
Winter hater/paradise lover
From the moment you walk into #410 the wow factor hits you like a brick wall! The view from the room is spectacular! The condo itelf is set up perfectly. I couldnt have asked for better accomodations!
paradise in kauai
When we walked into the condo we were in awe. The view was spectacular just as described. Waking up and looking out into the ocean from our bedroom was amazing. The unit was clean, well supplied for your enjoyment, and the owners were efficient and reliable. The location was a bonus. The beach beside the building had the best snorkeling on the three islands we visited. Sea turtles were in abundance and the water was very clear. There is a grassy area for sunning, reading, and watching great sunsets. The restaurant there is a must but make reservations. From this grassy area we watched the father and daughter world champion tandem surfers train. This condo and location had everything to make this a very special place. Our only regret is that we did not book a long enough stay. Thank you Ryan and avigale for sharing this little bit of paradise with us. Aloha! Bonnie

Lovely Condo, watch the surfers right in front of your balcony!
Loved the location, was sunny 95% of the time and the views off the balcony were fabulous, made me want to take surf lessons. Close to the main hotels and some resturaunts and pubs. The kitchen was nicely remodeled, furniture and beds very comfy, overall a wonderful place for our Kauai vacation!
Beautiful Ocean Front Condo
Kuhio Shores #410 is wonderful place to stay on the South Shore. The photos on the web site do not do it justice. From the moment you enter the condo the ocean view is stunning and the sound of the ocean is incredible. The grounds are very well maintained and the entire building just oozes peace and quiet. We did not have any noise issues at all with the bdrm window facing the walkway- all you hear is the ocean. This was our fifth trip to Kaua'i and #410 did not disappoint. If you are fortunate enough to book this place, you will not regret your choice.

Excellent Condo - Beautiful setting
This is a great condo. Very clean, comfortable beds, excellent layout, beautiful view out onto the ocean - we saw whales, turtles, and some excellent surfers! The porch balcony isn't more than 40 feet from the water. Great snorkeling at the little beach right next door. Quiet area - which was great for a relaxing vacation - caught up on our sleep! And yet convenient for all we wanted to do. This is our second time at this condo and we would come back again for sure and would recommend it highly to anyone who wants to visit Kauai.
Very comfortable upscale condo with an amazing view
Wow, this condo was perfect for my family of 4. We were all in awe of the view and all of the action going on in the ocean each day. One morning we woke up to a huge rainbow over the water. We watched surfers and sunrises and I even saw a whale. The beds were the most comfortable we have slept in. Two bathrooms made our stay much easier. I really enjoyed the upscale furniture and kitchen. We liked to make breakfast each day and then take the ice from the freezer to fill our cooler before heading out to the latest adventure. This condo is also within walking distance to shopping and a great snorkel beach. It was an added benefit that the condo had a beach umbrella, chairs, and a boogie board for us to borrow. I loved being able to do laundry at our convienence since it allowed us to pack much less for our 9 day stay. I highy recommend this unti - the owners were great too!
Great unit in quiet building. Recently remodeled with high-end finishes and appliances. Fantastic ocean views @ whale watching right from the lanai. No better place near Poipu beach. Would definitely stay again - zero regrets.
Welcome to Paradise!
We just spent a week in #410 Kuhio Shores and had a wonderful experience. The condo was just the right size for our family (parents and two boys) and one can tell that it had been recently remodeled.
The condo cannot be more "oceanfront", we always left the sliding doors to the balcony open so we could hear the sound of the ocean and watch the whales and turtles. Great snorkeling opportunities just in front of the condo, and other great beaches are only about 5 mins away (in front of the Sheraton).
There's a nice restaurant next door where everyone gathers on the lawn to watch the sunset (even if you don't stay for dinner). Everything else was within reasonable driving distance, horseback riding (CJM Stables 10 mins), surf school (5 mins) and about 25 mins from Lihue airport.
We greatly enjoyed our stay and hope to be able to return some day.
Home of the Packers!!!
Stayed at this property for our 1st time to Kauai (have always gone to Maui and wanted to try another island) Ryan and avigale were super to work with and very quick to respond. Absolutely beautiful property. Would highly recommend it! The Dukes beach front bar in Kauai was awesome...gotta try it if you stay here!
Great condo with gorgeous ocean views and sounds.
I stayed in 410 with my sisters and mother, celebrating our mom's 75th birthday. It was a perfect choice -- clean & renovated condo with to-die-for views and ocean sounds which made sleeping so peaceful.
The condo is not huge, but has plenty of space for 4 people to chill out. Nice kitchen, and new, comfortable living room furniture. Lots of built-ins in the bedrooms for clothing. Beds were very comfortable with good linens. Bathrooms were nicely appointed -- love the glass tiled countertops! Nice comfortable chairs on the terrace which we took advantage of for reading and whale-watching.
We were glad to be on the 4th floor for the views and privacy. Elevators were prompt and easy to deal with. Laundry room is close by and kept clean. Bring quarters with you. All the public spaces of the building were clean and tidy.
The condo is right next door to The Beach House restaurant (highly recommended) and a 2 minute drive to a shopping center with a fantastic organic market (The Living Market) which makes great smoothies and coffee. There is a Farmers Market in the plaza here on Wednesdays. Also, Merrimans restaurant and Josselins restaurant are here. Josselins (tapas) and The Beach House were 2 of our favorite dining experiences -- both fun, good service and great food. Roys was another good one, and only 5 minutes away.
Loved the location of the 410 -- we snorkeled once right here and it was good. But Poipu beach was only a 5 minute drive away and was our preferred beach. We also did morning runs from the condo to Poipu beach. And a highlight of our trip was the sunrise stroll along the cliffs by the Hyatt (about an 8 minute drive away) followed by a walk through the Hyatt grounds and along the coast -- we saw lots of whales and sea turtles.
Kuhio Shores Unit 410 has been recently remodeled and the owners chose tasteful, high quality materials throughout. The view from the lanai is simply breathtaking. We watched giant green sea turtles bobbing in the surf and humpback whales spouting offshore. Right next to Kuhio is a great snorkeling area and, if you like to shop, a new mall (with a couple of good restaurants) is within walking distance. I've stayed in other Kauai condos that had additional amenities (e.g., swimming pools and a laundry room in the unit). But I've paid more to stay in these other condos than I did to stay at Kuhio Shores and I felt that Kuhio's location and view more than offset the need to walk down the hall to the coin-operated laundry. Kauai is my favorite island and Kuhio Shores 410 is Kauai at its best.
Toronto, Ontario Canada
We stayed in unit 410 between Dec 23/10 to Jan 4/11. We chose this unit based on an internet search of available properties in the Poipu area. Our party consisted of 2 parents and 2 sons in their 20's. The representations made online for this property were completely reasonable and fulfilled in reality. There were no undesirable surprises encountered. The unit is tastefully renovated with modern kitchen and bathrooms. This unit is not air conditioned, however, there are multiple ceiling fans and the breeze from the ocean keeps it cool. There is a king bed in one room, a double bed in the other and a decent pull out couch bed in the living room. All linens are premium quality.
The unit is perched above and adjacent to the ocean, so that the view is unencumbered and the sound of waves hitting the shore is ever present.
We really had no complaints of any substance. There are lots of building "rules", but nothing that could be considered unreasonable eg. laundry rooms ere locked precisely @ 9:00 p.m.. The unit, from our investigation, is fairly priced, but its location makes it more desirable than other offerings in the area. Right next door is a small beach for snorkelling and right beside is a fancy restaurant.
We would definitely consider renting here again without hesitation. We found the owners to be friendly and responsive to all requests and information. We really enjoyed the accomodations and the island. The beaches and restaurants in the Poipu area make this a wonderful staging point for a vacation.
Beautiful spacious condo in a prime location
This is a wonderful place to stay close to Poipu Beach. The condo is very well appointed. There's a terrific kitchen that had everything we needed to make breakfast each morning and a couple of dinners. The view was lovely and the sound of the surf at night was peaceful. The property is next door to the Beach House Restaurant where we had a delicious dinner one night.
Ultimate Oceanfront Living Experience
This is the second year we have stayed in this wonderful condo on the ocean. We can watch sea turtle, whales, and surfers from the breakfast table. The condo is very tastefully decorated, and stocked with pretty much everything you need to make this your home away from home. The building is very solid and sound proof. We did not hear anything other than the constant and wonderful sound of the waves breaking just feet below us. There is great snorkeling next to Kuhio Shores in front of the Beach House Resturant. We have stayed at many different places in Hawii ( including The awesome Four Seasons on Maui) and this is by far our favorite place to stay. Ryan and avigale are the nicest people to deal with. They quickly respond to any and all of our requests.
If you want a really special experience, try staying here.
A wonderful Kauai getaway

A wonderful stay in Kauai
This is the second time we have stayed at Kuhio Shores 410. Like the first time, we were provided all of the information necessary to arrive at and enter the condominium with ease. It's location allows easy access to all areas of the island. Being right on the beach enables a walking opportunity to great snorkeling and sunbathing. The snorkling views of a variety of fish and sea turtles is spectacular. Beach chairs and towels are included in the provisions. The residence has all of the amenities of home including comfortable furnishings, cable tv, dvd, dishwasher, large refrigerator/freezer and a balcony view of the ocean that can't be beaten by any other location. Our two week stays have been unmatched on any other island. In summary, the condo is newly decorated with beautiful interior decorations, dual bathroom/shower facilities and a well-stocked kitchen. A truly delightful time with incredible sunsets viewed from the beach.
Highly recommend this condo!
Great view and high-end features
The location of Kuhio Shores 410 was perfect. Every evening, we could watch local surfers and sea turtle feeding all from our ocean-front lanai! We kept the windows open so the tradewinds could keep the condo cool.
Some of my party liked hearing the ocean waves on the lava rocks below, while others did not. There is a very small beach next door that is popular to watch the sunset or snorkeling. For more family-friendly beaches, Poipu and Sheraton Beach are a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk.
When we didn't want to dine at local places, we enjoyed using the fully stocked kitchen with stainless steel appliances, seasonings, and granite countertops. My party of 6 singles thoroughly enjoyed this condo!
Kuhio Shores 410
Great view of the ocean. We watched the honu turtles and surfers from the lanai and listened to the pounding waves as we slept. Very nice and clean and great breeze. Everything you can ask for. The condo was located close to evrything you need.
Perfect Kauai Condo
I traveled to Kauai last month with my husband and another couple. The 4 of us stayed in Kuhio Shores Unit 410 owned by Ryan and avigale. We are frequent travelers and most of the time rent properties directly from the owners. We prefer renting condos over staying in hotels for the extra space and the flexibility to cook meals. We stopped by Costco after landing in Kauai and picked up enough food to last the 4 of us for 5 days. This condo was perfect. Ryan and avigale thought of everything. They were very quick to respond to any questions I had prior to renting the condo and also allowed very late check out on our last day with no additional charge. The condo appears to be newly renovated. We picked this 4th floor unit for the view. The view was amazing and the sounds of the waves were so relaxing to fall asleep to. The condo was clean upon our arrival, the kitchen was fully stocked, the beds were comfortable and there was plenty of seating for the 4 of us. They also provided extra bath towels as well as beach towels. The unit is located next to the elevator and the shared laundry room. I was concerned that there might be a lot of noise from other guest walking back and forth but I never heard a peep from anyone. This complex is very quiet. My husband used the shared BBQ which was located in the far corner of the parking lot twice. He said they were very clean and the other guest using the Bbqs were very friendly. There is on site security that walks around the complex which is nice but I was not concerned about my safety at all. There are great snorkeling beaches on both sides of the condo. You can actually see the turtles from the balcony of the condo. I would not hesitate to rent Kuhio Shores Unit 410 if I ever return to Kauai. Thank you Ryan and avigale.

A memorable and truly relaxing experience
We enjoyed a fantastic and relaxing stay in this beautiful oceanfront vacation
condo. The unique layout of this two bedroom unit sets it apart from the
others that are available, and it easily accommodated four adults. We shared
the unit with our sister and brother-in-law. We also liked the new appliances
and furnishings. The oceanfront view at Kuhio Shores is the best, and we also
prefer the higher floors, which provide more privacy. We never thought about
turning on the TV during our stay, but instead spent our free time listening to
the waves, relaxing on the lanai, and taking in the natural beauty of the
surroundings. The cool breeze kept us comfortable, especially at night, when
we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. The new nearby shopping
area adds to the overall convenience of this property, but some things were a
bit pricey. Consider a trip to Koloa or Lihue for your grocery shopping. We've
stayed in the Poipu area several times, and Kuhio Shores is now our overall
favorite place to stay on Kauai. Booking was a snap and Ryan & Avigale were
very good to work with. Aloha!
San Francisco, CA
Awesome view and great accommodations.
Wow. What a great place to stay at on the south shore of Kauai.
With easy to follow instructions it was a breeze checking in at Kuhio Shores
#410. The lanai and view of PK's surf break were awesome. We enjoyed
watching all the honu (turtles) feeding every afternoon/evening.
The entire condo was updated recently and you can definitely tell. The kitchen
was a pleasure to use and cook in. The view from the dining room table was
awesome for breakfast.
The bed was so comfortable it was like sleeping on a cloud. Overall I would
definitely recommend staying here for anyone interested in awesome views
and stylish accommodations.
Mahalo to Ryan & Avigale for providing a wonderful condo!
Terrific condo at Poipu
We stayed in both Kuhio Shores 114 and 410 in March 2010 because neither was available for the full time that we were on Kauai. Bottom line: Wonderful site, beautiful condos, responsive owners. We give these condos our highest recommendation with absolutely no reservations.
The site: We've been to Kauai three previous times and always enjoyed staying at Kiahuna Plantation. This time, we decided to try Kuhio Shores which puts you right on the water with very good snorkeling accessible from either side of the condo building. Green sea turtles gather directly in front of the building and, if you venture out there with snorkeling gear, you will see *many* turtles. At one point, there was also a monk seal on the beach adjacent to the building. Does it get better than that?
The condos: 114 and 410 are owned by the same couple. Both condos were renovated recently, are beautiful, and are in superb condition. 114 is a first-floor walkout -- 25 feet of lawn, and there's the ocean. While 114 is at the center of the front of the building, the building bumps out at that point so the effect is like being in a corner unit, with an additional view along the coast to the west. 410 is on the top floor and does not have that additional glass but it's much easier to spot turtles from the higher vantage point.
Owners: We communicated with one of the owners (Ryan) several times via email and phone when booking and while in the condos, and he was always very responsive. He was also flexible about our checkout time as we had a very late-departing flight. Our security deposit was promptly returned after our stay.
Bottom line: We now prefer Kuhio Shores to Kiahuna Plantation because of its proximity to the water and for the excellent snorkeling mere feet away. 114 and 410 are absolutely beautiful and are owned and managed by people who care not only about their property but also about their guests. We give both condos five out of five stars, two thumbs up, and blue ribbons.
Kuhio Shores 410
This unit was wonderful! The whole complex was very nicely maintained. Unit 410 was clean as a whistle. Appliances and furnishing were way way above "service" grade found in other condos we've rented (even at higher prices). Ryan and Avigale were spot on with their customer service and follow through on any correspondence we had with them. Thank you! We will stay here again when on Kauai
Gig Harbor, WA
Best furnished unit in Kuhio Shores
The unit was great with all of the furnishings top notch! The change in layout with the bedroom slider doors opening to the living room and ocean is great!!!!!! Of course, Kuhio Shores is a great place to stay with south facing units enjoying the never ending views from sunrise to sunset. We always enjoy watching the turtles, whales and surfers from the lanai when we aren't out snorkeling or boggie boarding. Thanks for a great unit and great vacation!!!!
