As a former resident and long-time visitor to Kauai, I have had many different lodging experiences on the most beautiful island in the world...from private homes, to long-term rentals, to resort hotels (boutique and large). I have never before experienced the magic and amazing energy I felt at Kuhio Shores 412. From the first moment, opening the door and seeing and hearing the ocean out the lanai, and then being surrounded by the beautiful decor and features, all cares vanished and I became one with the island and the ocean. Words cannot convey how incredible this condo is, with the most magical feature being the constant sound of the waves right outside 4 stories below. Surfers, waves, turtles, rainbows... all were frequenly viewed. The condo is ideally located for all south shore activities, is adjacent to the excellent Beach House restaurant, and has great snorkeling next to the building. I can think of no better or more romantic place to stay if you are fortunate enough to find yourself on Kauai.
