Description from the owner
106 is the "best of the best" Kuhio Shores (ranked #2 by TripAdvisor for Po'ipu condos) offers.
Why settle for less than being right on the beach? Where else are you going to find the beach at such a great price with all the comforts of home?
Located right on the ocean, Kuhio Shores provides snorkeling, scuba, surfing, swimming, sunning, and beachcombing without having to get in your car or even cross the street. You are five minutes away from Po'ipu Beach and old Koloa town; with excellent shopping and restaurants in walking distance (the Beach House Restaurant is next door, and Kukui'ula Village is 1/2 mile away).

Additional Location Information
Kauai offers all the benefits of a Hawaii without feeling overwhelmed by tourists. I spent a few years living in a rural area in the tropics in the 60's... and Kauai reminds me so much of the way things were back then (of course, with WiFi).
The island has many micro-climates, from jungle to desert; this is the dry side. It is common for the entire island to be engulfed in rain, and just as you reach Koloa, the rain subsides.
Kuhio Shores is right on the beach; you can't build this close anymore. There's a reef ~200yds. out where the waves break, so the water is normally tranquil by the condo.
Lawai beach is most popular on the other side of the building, in front of the Beach House restaurant (where the good surfing is). This side of the building faces Ho'ia Bay with a small patch of beach that attracts the turtles and not the tourists. There are only 8 ground-level units on this side of the building which gives it a sense of privacy. If you want to see and be seen, then the beach on the other side of the building is only a short walk.
The condo faces east for the sunrise. There is a year-round breeze coming from the east, providing near constant flow-through ventilation.
Inside the unit, the wood and art remind me of the tropics back in the 60's... so I'm a throw-back for nostalgia in this respect. It adds to the sense that you're on a remote rural island.
We've never looked at renting the condo strictly as a business; it's for our fun and our guests fun. The greatest reward we get is in helping our guests have the best possible vacation. It sounds "sappy" but it's true: it's been our most intangibly rewarding venture, and we love doing it.
One additional benefit has been the best, most diligent and hard-working housekeeper imaginable!
