It's very peaceful here. When you listen to the sound of the ocean waves, and gaze at the endless horizon, you'll feel like you are a million miles away from all of your cares and concerns. There is nothing like being lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf. Come and experience the tranquility of this beautiful location.
The Kuhio Shores Condominium development, a four floor, 75 unit complex with a sandy beach on each side, is located on Lawai Road, which ends nearby at the Spouting Horn. It is adjacent (we are talking FEET here) to Lawai Beach, the best snorkeling beach on the island, and The Beach House, the best restaurant. Lawai Road is very quiet, and yet it is only minutes to Poipu Village Shopping, the Sheraton and Hyatt resorts and spas, Poipu Beach and other wonderful beaches, a half dozen other fine restaurants, and the world famous Poipu Bay Golf Course, previous home of the PGA 'Grand Slam of Golf' Tournament. Old Koloa Town, the oldest plantation town in Hawaii, is less than ten minutes away.
We first saw this condo during a business/vacation trip in July of 2003. We looked at a number of condos, including another one in Kuhio Shores, and this one was head and shoulders above the rest. The designer interior was great... but the real selling point was the location and the view... as soon as you walk in the door, you'll say "Wow."
We knew immediately that no guest would ever be disappointed with it, that we would always be proud to own it. We also suspected that we would get a lot of repeat guests, and referrals from our guests, so that the occupancy rate would be high. Still, we weren't sure it would be a good investment, but because of our sentimental attachment to Kauai (we were married on the island in 1996, and have been in love with it ever since), we decided to go ahead, and we closed on the property in October 2003. We only get to spend a week or two visiting every year, but we just love it, and we're sure you will too!TripAdvisor property ID 2103804...Read more

“The most wonderful condo on Kauai -- from a former resident”
Left on 07/27/2015 for a stay in July 2015 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jul 27, 2015Stayed Jul 2015
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.
