Why We Love This Home

Prince Kuhio’s Surf Break: Grab a blanket and get ready for a show right in your backyard! Prince Kuhio’s surf break, between Prince Kuhio and Lawai beaches, is a popular spot for surfers to show off their skills in the crashing waves.

Watch Sea Turtles from the Lanai: There’s nothing better than watching sea turtles playfully navigate the waves in the Pacific, except maybe watching with a cold drink from the comfort of your private lanai. During the winter months, you might even catch glimpses of whales and dolphins swimming in the blue waters.

Central Location: In one direction, you’ll find the popular Beach House Restaurant. On the other, the Spouting Horn blowhole delights visitors. If you’re looking for shopping options, the Kukui’ula Shopping Village has numerous shops, galleries, and a gourmet farmers market.

Just 30 minutes from the airport, this condo puts you at Kukui’ula Shopping Center’s upscale grocery store, restaurants, shops, galleries, and a weekly farmers market (11-minute walk). Drive to the National Tropical Botanical Gardens and Spouting Horn Park (four minutes) for hiking through native plants and to a stunning waterspout.

This property is managed by Vacasa Hawaii.

Parking Notes: There will be a parking pass in the condo at the time of check-in; you must go to the main lobby to register the car. All vehicles must have parking permits which may be obtained at the lobby office or from any employee if not already provided in your unit. Each unit is restricted to one parking space. Such spaces are not assigned, park anywhere in the Kuhio Shores parking lot.
In the evening a big flock of parakeets descends on the trees surrounding the parking lot, where they spend the night. As a result, all cars parked under the branches (either the shower trees close to the entrance, or the palms trees along the side of the road that doesn’t look like they could hold many birds) will be covered in bird poop in the morning. Please park away from any branches. Generally parking in the middle of the parking lot, except under the shower trees is fine, as are the spots between the palm trees.

Guest Entry Instructions: This rental utilizes an E-lock, a digital lock that requires an unique code to enter. This code is reset after each guest's stay.

This condo has the most magical view on the south shore. We saw numerous sea turtles off the balcony each evening. It is centrally located among gorgeous beaches and restaurants. The condo itself is cozy, air conditioned, and the bed was extremely comfortable.
Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer, Would 10/10 recommend staying here while in south Kauai.
. May 2021
Fantastic location with beautiful views! We visited Kauai for our honeymoon, and would definitely consider rebooking this condo in the future. Also, you can spot sea turtles daily from your private balcony. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Great waterfront location for an affordable price. Easy touch-less check-in. The place is solid with all the amenities you would need. King bed and pillows are comfortable.

This was an excellent Airbnb. The pictures are extremely accurate. It deserves all of the excellent ratings. The host was responsive, accommodating, and very professional.

My husband and I loved our stay in Kuhio Shores! The view from lanai was spectacular, we practically lived out there. We saw sea turtles every single day! The condo was very clean and comfortable. They left us fresh local eggs, cookies and a bottle of wine which was a nice and welcoming touch. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

They aren’t kidding when they say “sea turtle view”! We saw sea turtles directly from our window during a late lunch and hopped in and snorkeled with them. We enjoyed the terrace for coffee and the sunrise each morning. Amazing location for the south shore beaches and activities. They are also super responsive to any questions and issues.

Lovely condo with a fantastic view. Awesome location with lots to do and see in the area. A few small hiccups because we were the first guests in a while (due to covid), but all issues were addressed quickly! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Condo was spotless, well-stocked kitchen, appreciated having a blender. Centrally located, easy check in. My only complaint is the scented towels and sheets - really dislike artificial odors. Otherwise, it was a great place. Owner`s Response: Mahalo, Elaina, for your feedback!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This unit is as described and more. The view is gorgeous. Having morning coffee and evening drinks on the lanai is so relaxing. It is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything anyone would need. The condo location is very conveniently located. This has been the perfect place to celebrate my husbands retirement!

The Kuhio Shores building is super close to the ocean, and the views are stunning from all sides. This one-bedroom condo is clean, spacious and completely updated. We saw turtles from the balcony every day, and we also saw them on Baby Beach, just a short walk down the street. The location is perfect, with two beaches right here, excellent snorkeling on the other side of the building, beautiful sunrises, and many restaurants and shops minutes away. It’s private and the management is great. I would absolutely stay here again. Owner`s Response: Mahalo, Ashley!! It was a pleasure hosting you and we look forward to working with you, again! Aloha!!

Property is truly a slice of heaven. Most epic sunrises from the bedroom. Tons of turtles swimming the bay. Upgraded throughout. Fantastic customer service from property management company. Entertainment system user friendly. BLOWN AWAYY! CAN NOT WAIT TO COME BACK. Mahalo nui!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Beautiful accommodation in Kauai with awesome views, spacious living areas, thoughtful touches and in a great location! Definitely book this place if you`re in beautiful Kauai!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This condo was a perfect spot for our 4 day trip in Kaua’i. The whole island is only 3.5 hour drive from beginning to end and this was pretty much smack dab in the middle. We were able to go snorkeling with the turtles on the north shore one day and then hike Waimea Canyon the next. The condo was super clean and very well equipped. I woke up every morning to watch the sunrise, drink my coffee and read my book while listening to the ocean crashing on the rocks; DREAM LIFE! It’s also within walking distance to The Beach House, the beat Tuna entree on the island (maybe in the country!). My husband and I are already talking about when we come back, this will be the place we will stay! Amazing communication with the staff and easy to check in and navigate to. Love love love this place! Owner`s Response: Mahalo, Anna!! You have been great guests! We`re happy you had such a memorable time on Kauai and that you enjoyed your accommodations! Come and visit, again, soon! We appreciate your wonderful comments! Aloha!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This property is an awesome place to stay. It is as advertised. The moment we walked into the place I knew it was heaven. I didn’t get any reading done as every time I went out on the lanai to read watched the sea turtles. They put on a spectacular show for us. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
. Sep 2019
I only give 4 stars for “accuracy” because the place was even BETTER than described/photographed! The marketing was definitely under rated! The condo is absolutely gorgeous with an incredible view! You have local surfer right behind the building that you can watch during sunset. You get to wake up to an amazing sunrise. There is one of the best restaurants also connected to the building with amazing service and excellent food. The staff at GVR are very responsive and accommodating. I was depressed leaving Kauai and staying at a 5-Star resort in Maui (not joking). Wishing I stayed on the island longer and at this amazing location. I cannot wait to return!! Will definitely stay here again! Couldn’t have started off our honeymoon any better. Mahalo!!

Great space for my husband and I on our honeymoon! The view was amazing from the balcony, plus you could take chairs (and drinks/snacks) down to the front of the condo and watch the surfers in the evening! Great location with easy access to the quaint downtown area. We spent nearly every day hiking or snorkeling around the island and everything was an easy drive. Thanks!

Great Place. Everything was as advertised. Management very responsive. Easy to get to and the sound of the ocean was relaxing. Fun to watch the turtles from the lanai. Overall excellent time in Kauai and this condo. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Our stay in #208 was absolutely amazing! Great location and the ocean view was spectacular. Right outside our lanai we watched turtles swim around us every evening, that was one of the highlights of our trip. The space was very clean with great furnishings. The king sized bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, and in fact the pillows were so comfortable too. Beaches and shops are close by. Communication via emails and texts were responded to promptly. We even upgraded our rental car and that was an easy process to do. Everything went smoothly and over all, we were very happy with our stay and already looking forward to coming back and booking again with Great Vacation Retreats.

This is a beautiful condo for a couple. It is clean, bright, and seems recently renovated. I love the view of the bay from bed (watching sunrise each morning from bed was lovely). It is spacious, clean, and well-furnished. The patio is comfortable, and in the evenings you can see turtles swimming from the patio. Well-equipped kitchen, and has boogie board, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, sand toys, snorkel gear for you to use. Has parking easily available, and convenient to be able to walk next door to Beach House restaurant (or grounds around it) for the best views of sunsets and sunset surfers. Would love to stay again!

The residence was spectacular! The pictures are extremely accurate on the ocean view and the interior of the apartment. The residence was very clean and quiet. The sound of the waves was calming with a great lanai to sit on with comfortable furniture. Parking was plentiful. Great Vacation Retreat was very informative and ensured that they answer all questions concerning the property and check-in. I could not have wished for a better experience. I told them I was coming in for my birthday and they were so nice to get me a birthday balloon and cupcakes. Thank you so much! I can`t wait to come back.

Perfect location. Beautiful view. Ice cold AC and fans within. There’s a little beach with great snorkeling right next to the building. Condo has a few sets of snorkel gear, a beach tent, a boogey board. Beach House restaurant is right next to the building as well, great happy hour with perfect views from 2:30 to 4:30. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Kuhio Shores was by far our favorite stay in Poipu! The condo was nothing less that luxurious. When we arrived, the home was immaculately clean, not to mention more stylish and comfortable than could have expected. So cozy & relaxing. The Lanai was furnished thoughtfully and the lounge chairs were very comfortable. The couch was plush and the tv system was easy to use and allowed us to watch Netflix and movies in the evenings. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could need and more & was spotless. The bathroom was nice, and we appreciated the beach towels and extra beach supplies left for our use. The bed in the master is a little on the firm side, so if you like firm, you’ll love this space. Truly a gem, and we will definitely be back. We would be there now if we could!

As of this writing (August 30, 2018) most of the building is being renovated with scaffolding, construction works, trucks and everything you would expect with such a project. Although the Unit (208) has been refurbished quite nicely, the building is old. The laundry system is archaic. Washers/dryers are available down the hall for USD 2.50 per cycle and require quarters. Linens and towels are well-worn and probably should be replaced. Grounds are well maintained. Great Vacation Retreats is responsive but offsite. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
. Jul 2018
The place was great! The view was incredible and much better than photos . We loved sitting outside every day. The included rental car was great and easy to get and parking was a breeze . The included beach chairs and umbrellas and towels were awesome. Kitchen had everything you would need to cook and we made several meals there. The only downside was the Wi-Fi was unusable our entire time - could not load any webpages or check email. They were VERY responsive and came to check on it . Sounds like it’s more of an island issue . Thanks for the great stay ! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

My husband and I had a great stay at Kuhio Shores 208. The unit was clean and had everything that we needed. We loved falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the ocean. Would definitely stay here again in the future! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We had such a great time here. The building was well maintained and quiet and the condo was clean and comfortable, with a great view that we enjoyed every morning at breakfast. Everyone we interacted with at GVR was kind and helpful. The beach gear and nylon cooler was a nice surprise, as well as a few treats waiting for us in the fridge when we arrived.

We had a short but lovely 2 night stay at this condo! Being able to open the patio door and listen to the ocean was amazing, plus we saw some sea turtles from the balcony! Air conditioning for nighttime was clutch since we couldn’t leave windows/doors open. The bed was big and comfy and we slept really well here. Would love to come back next time we’re on the island. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Let me just start off by saying the pictures of the views and condo do not do it justice. The views are even more amazing in person. The sunrises are spectacular! We watched sea turtles play all day from the lanai. There is a lovely astroturf area which surrounds the condos which makes for a nice little walk while you are glimpsing into the ocean. The unit is exceptional! It is updated with an open floor plan, great decorating and many extra beach/play amenity`s that other condos do not. Beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach tent, soft cooler and beach toys for the kids. Upon arrival we were given a box of cookies and a shark towel for our daughter. It was a kind welcome gesture :) There are so many beaches within a few miles. One especially, is a short walk from the condo which is named Keiki Beach. There is a great fish market called Kola Fish Market which provide excellent selection and at great prices! Shopping center within walking distance as well.

A really beautiful space in an excellent location. Our favorite part was the balcony overlooking the ocean! Great Vacation Retreats also had a really fun and helpful guide to the island. Beach chairs for our use during the trip were a really nice touch as well. I can`t say enough good things! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We absolutely loved our stay with Great Vacation Retreats. The location was unbeatable, the unit was nicely furnished, clean and had stunning views, as depicted. We especially appreciated the extras that came with the rental - including beach chairs, cooler and towels. We woke up starving and thirsty at 5am on our first morning - I can`t begin to describe how happy we were when we found water and delicious coconut cookies in the refrigerator. Overall our stay perfect. We couldn`t have asked for anything more. Thank you! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
