Have stayed at Kuhio shores several times now and LOVE LOVE unit #411.... Best view, all the amenities you will ever want for your visit. From the kitchen to beach needs .. The owners have provided you everything to make your vacation perfect. And who can beat that morning coffee view ..as you watch the surfers and see turtles from...

Kuhio Shores courtesy of Phil and Dena King. Fantastic stay! The accommodations were outstanding. Loved the unit and was thrilled with the location, view and amenities. I couldn't imagine a better place to say (and I've been to Hawaii four different times and places.) This was my favorite visit and I truly look forward to coming back to Kauai and...

Beautiful location in Poipu and very convenient to beaches and dining. The view from the living room and lanai in unit #307 is outstanding and looks over a small cove with sea turtles frequently feeding on the algae. Everything in this one-bedroom condo is updated and attractive, including the very comfortable king-sized bed. Owner Polly was responsive and accommodating, helping...

Kuhio Shores is a condominium complex where many of the owners sublease their units though the year as vacation rentals. The complex is located directly on the ocean on the south shore in the town on Koloa. There is an excellent site for snorkeling and surfing, Lawa’i Beach less than a minute’s walk away (not a great beach for lazing...

First. let me admit that Kuhio Shores is right for us and we have stayed there for a month each year for over ten years. But, Kuhio Shores is not right for every traveler because it is not a resort with a pool and many amenities. In fact, the only amenity is an area to BBQ in the parking lot...

This is a very lovely location right on the water. There was ample parking and very convenient location to visit other areas on the island. The property is older but very clean and quiet. In fact we knew there were many others staying there but we really didn't see them. We rented directly from the owner of the condo which...

The view from our condo was spectacular! Beautiful sunsets and waves as far as we could see. We really enjoyed watching the surfers from our lanai. I would have give it 5 stars, but the bedroom windows were off the main walkway so everyone could see in your bedroom when the windows were open. If you close them it gets...

We stayed in condo 217. The owners (Mike Galvin) were wonderful and very helpful. Nicely furnished and very clean. The view from the lanai was spectacular. Breakfast and watching the turtles was such fun.. The beach house restaurant was within walking. I would recommend this condo without any hesitation.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Kuhio Shores. Unit 303 was well equipped with all that you need to hit the beach. Loved sitting on the Lani watching the waves and the honu swimming in the surf. All of the furniture was very comfortable. Took naps on the couch listening to the waves! Was a little worried there was no...

There is nothing better than being on vacation and listening to the ocean! The location of Kuhio Shores is great. It is right on the ocean. Great views to the South and West. I would recommend trying to stay on the West side and higher if possible. The only complaint is lack of airflow in the unit I rented. I...

“Not a hotel but a condo - stay on 2nd or 3rd floor away from beach house restaurant - less noise/better views. Review is for Unit 210.”
