Place was clean, views were amazing and the island was magnificent.
“Beautiful view and wonderful sounds”
This condo was absolutely spectacular. Completely accurate to what the pictures showed, beautiful ocean views and could hear the waves crashing against the shore. Great location and plenty of parking! Can't wait to come back and wouldn't stay anywhere else!
“amazing place and view.”
this condo was worth every cent. Gvr made sure to have a welcome bag for us with essentials ie dish soap, kleenx, toilet paper. the place was spotless, smelled good and the patio view was incredible. Had great surf right out front and fantastic snorkeling for kauai, we saw turtles out front and a monk seal on the beach sunning. dislike: the entry code wasnt given to us before we arrived, we had to call a guy to get the code. positive about this the guy called us back within 2 minutes to provide the code.!
Response from the manager Aloha and thank you for your feedback! So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the extra amenities;) Sorry to hear that you had a problem with the code upon arrival. We are checking to make sure we have systems in place that prevent that for any future guests. Look forward to seeing you again!
“The view is fabulous!”
The condo had a perfect view of the rocky shore and the ocean. We could have spent our entire vacation watching the surfers, boats, turtles and even a humpback whale breeching directly in front of our lenai. The best sunset viewing spot was two minutes from our door. The kitchen was nicely equipped. Beach chairs were provided. The couch/lounger was super comfy with superb views of the ocean and relaxing sound of the crashing waves. Everything was clean. Parking was never a problem. People at Great Vacation Retreats were always courteous; quick to respond to our calls and very patient with our questions. Condo did get warm in the afternoon, but with the fans going the rooms were very pleasant at night. Definitely Recommended! Thank you.
“Awesome time while staying at Kuhio Shores!”
Had a wonderful time at Kuhio Shores. The condo was well designed and decorated and had wonderful views of the ocean. Watched the whales every evening while cooking dinner and the spectacular sunset views were amazing. Highly recommended for anyone who doesn't want the highly populated tourist areas to stay at.
“Happy Birthday to me”
As a business owner I appreciated Great Vactions branding; from the soap and shampoo pump bottles to the shopping bag of goodies that was left us. The folder of current local information was very useful. It was set in my mind that Great Vactions was taking care of us. Great job. Every interaction was sunshine; phone, email and in person. Kuhio Shores is the prfect location for these empty nesters. I don't believe this location would be suiting for young families. It took 4 minutes from the time we shut the condo door until we were snorkeling. It was a great relief to not have to figure out what to do with the key; loved the keyless entry. Whale, turtle, surfer and sunset watching from our lani was a true pleasure. Especially since it snowed 20 inches at home while we were in paradise. The unit had almost everything we needed. Had to buy a blender; don't know how to have fruity tropical drinks without one. The unit is clean and well supplied. Newer furniture and ammenities. Did not notice any street noice. Never heard noice from the Beach House either. Stayed at few condos where using the BBQ grills put your life in danger. Not here,they were clean and well maintained. The only complaint I can come up with was; not enough towels. Having to do laundry and pay $4 a load was somewhat frustrating and probably petty. We will be back and Kuhio Shores #416 and Great Vactions will be the first place we look.
“A little more finesse and this unit would be a real winner.”
We have rented condos all over the world. This condo: The location can't be beat. If we were any closer to the ocean we would be in it. Easy to get anywhere on the island from here. Best snorkeling on the island is right next door. Same for a great restaurant. Great Vacation Retreats provided very good supplies and did everything right. The owners of condo 416 - not so much. The condo didn't have much in the way of amenities and wasn't supplied well with things used in the kitchen. The TV is too small and hasn't enough sound to be heard over the waves. Living room needs more funiture and better seating. The master bedroom needs a window treatment that will let the air flow through at night but still provide privacy from the walkway outside the window. Just seemed like the owners were cheaping it. We would stay at Kahio Shores Condos again, just not in unit 416.
Response from the manager Aloha, Thanks for submitting a review. We are actually in the process of doing a complete kitchen remodel (starting today) and getting new carpet in this condo. Thanks for your suggestions and we hope to see you again!
great place and great time. the view is the best saw whales from the lanai
“Terrific View, Average accomodations”
Great view of ocean, surfers and turtles. Accomodations were of average cleanliness. Ants in kitchen. Next time I would rent a place with a bit more of a resort feel, maybe some place with a pool... Had an elevator but no a/c. We rented a car separately at the airport. Would have liked some chairs to sit at out on the lawn.
Our stay with you at Kuhio Shore was fabulous. The condo was just like the pictures showed. Watching the surfers and turtles from the lanai was wonderful. The beach next door was great for snorkeling. Having a car pick us up at the airport was a treat. The Beach House restaurant next door is a must but there are so many great choices to eat. We are already planning our next trip.
