    Historical Traveler Reviews Kuhio Shores Condos Poipu

    Everything we wanted


    Stayed in this courner unit at Kuhio Shores #209 which we found on line. The floor to ceiling windows wrapped around giving one the sensation of actually being in the ocean. It was hard to leave when we couldnt really improve on this view. There is no air conditioning, and it turned out that the open windows just let in the cool trades, in fact at night we closed up. Our bedroom, with a King, was ocean side, so its like listening to a wave machine to go to sleep, which is what the Pacific is I guess. The web site is mypoipubeach.com They have high speed interenet access and a full kitchen as well. West is the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, on a clear day, this drive makes for some spectacular views!

    Pardise at our Back Door


    We were so amazed by the views from our homes (we stayed in both 217 and 115 during March 2004). Not only was the location excellent, the rates were very reasonable and our 2 hosts, Mike and Chuck were very helpful - providing great maps, suggestions and photos. We couldn't stop taking photographs from the balcony and lanai. The evenings offered incredible sunsets, views of whales, sea turtles and surfers.

    We loved the peace and quiet and enjoyed watching snorkelers, tour ships, kayaks and children discovering the sea life in the rocks below us. With the ocean only 30 ft. away with easy access, we would have loved sitting all day but the location offered a great base for exploring the island. The weather was a bit cool at times, but the air was perfect; clean and full of the fragrant flowers of the island. We will be back.

    Incredible Views!


    We recently stayed at Kuhio Shores ofr our honeymoon and we loved it!

    The location is incredible. We were on the fourth floor and had amazing views. The complex isn't much but the views for the condo are incredible. Each night we watched the sunset either from our balcony or down on the rocks by the water. In the morning you would see surfers right in front of you. Some of the best snorkeling was right next door.

    The only downside is there is no air conditioning. However, when we were there we had all the windows open and there was a pretty nice breeze that kept the condo very nice. I would recommend the condo we stayed in to anyone. If you would like more information on the condo we stayed in feel free to email me ckoon@ucsd.edu. Aloha and Mahalo

    Oceanfront steal


    We thought the Kuhio Shores was a great deal. 30' from the ocean for 150 dollars a night? WOW !! when you toss in all the extras that come with the place like chairs, snorkel gear, ice chests, grass mats - it becomes an even better deal- you can spend 100.00 per week on that stuff to rent.

    We also thought our place was very nicely decorated. It was obvious that the owners had put a alot of thought into the placement of all the items to make it very comfortable. If things do seem a little worn here or there you have to remember that there units are owned by regular people doing thier best to make thier Hawaii dreams come true and don't forget the bargain you got. If you want Hyatt decorations go to the Hyatt and pay 1200 per night for comparable accomodations.(oceanfront -one bedroom)

    Yes the units can get a little hot, especially during whatever time of day the sun is shining directly into your unit, for example if you are on the side the sunrise comes up on you should close the blinds a little and go on the balcony to see the view. You are in Hawaii - it gets warm there, isn't that why you came in the first place?

    We have stayed in several places in Poipu and have not found a better place for any price to sip mai tais and watch turtles than the Kuhio Shores. We can recommend unit 404. Very nice.

    Can't Beat the Views! Needs Air Conditioning Though.


    We stayed in the condo from September 10-14, 2003. Our corner view condo was extremely nice and well stocked with just about everything you would need for a stay at home. The only complaint I have would be that there was not any air conditiion. The breezes were blowing off-shore which didn't provide much air through the condo. The complex itself is nothing spectacular, the the sunset and beach views are just spectacular. The local is right next door to the Beach House restaurant which was nice, but a little busier than preferred. Everyone comes to watch the sunset from that spot so it doesn't really feel very private.

    I guess it depends on what you are looking for. There was a surf contest held right in front of our condo one day which also brought lots of people. If you like to surf however, it's a great location. All in all our stay was very nice except for the fact that the maid had forgot to come clean our room and we had to do it ourselves. We stayed on the 4th floor corner unit which had windows with a view you will never forget.

    Best part of our trip


    We stayed at 4 different places on 3 islands during our Hawaii trip and Kuhio shores was the perfect ending to our vacation. Unit #103 was relaxing, beautiful location. So much care went into the decorating and arranging of items inside to make it as comfortable as possible for visitors. It was a little muggy at night, but we eventually figured out how to best ventilate the unit (plus, we know humidity in Chicago, so it wasn't THAT bad).

    Great little beach a few steps away - it's a bit rocky and choppy though. I'd recommend a boogie board (rent one from Snorkel Bob's down the road), or just drive a little ways to Poipu beach for those uncomfortable with this beach. It does have fantastic snorkeling. I loved sitting on the lanai watching the waves crash ashore.

    All the appliances worked very well, we had no problems finding what we needed (there's even a coffee grinder and 2 french press pots should you need them).

    I'd recommend a unit on the first floor (that's what we had). Remember that each unit is owned by a different person/company, therefore they are not all the same. I loved #103, check it out if you're planning a trip.

    Captured My Heart & Soul


    August 30 - September 6, 2003Kauai captured my heart & soul forever! Our stay at the Kuhio Shores #415 was beyond expression! The view from our condo was 30' from the ocean. Sunrise to Sunset you'd hear the crashing of the surf against the rocks, so soothing to the soul. The weather forever changing. A palm tree outside our condo had lilttle birds that visited each day. They were louder than the "ocean". The quaint charm of #415 was one of simplicity & elegance. Driving around the island, every turn in the road was a breathtaking view. A helicopter tour is highly recommended. This shows you another beautiful view of Kauai. Kuhio Shores staff are most gracious as were the owners of our condo. Thank you for making this week the most special time our life. I've traveled all over the US, traveled through Mexico, Costa Rica, and other Hawaiian Islands. "Kauai" indeed is the most beautiful place on earth. ***Mahalo***

    Time of my Life


    The best time of our life was spent in #415 Kuhio Shores Condo, from 8/30/03 thru 9/6/03. Even thou it was very humid there, once the windows were open & the fans put on it was nice & comfortable, with the front door open it created a great cross breeze. We found sleeping in the living room was the best cause of the sound of the waves crashing & the moon shining & in the morning birds were singing in the palm tree right outside our window. We sat on the lanai and had our coffee & watched the surfers and that was at 6am, everyone was up and going.

    From the lanai one morn i saw an eel in the rocks and with the binoculars saw a school of dolphins go by. A little beach was right down street next to the Beach House restaurant. The Spouting Horn was only minutes away and that was a great attraction. Everything you needed or wanted was within minutes of the condo. What cracked me up the most about this island was the roosters & chickens, they are everywhere,,,lol. If you have little kids & want a great swimming hole go to Lyndgage Park. Its a barrier pool for adults & lil ones and you get to swim with all kinds of colorful fish,,,get your snorkels out & get an underwater camera. Our favorite eating place at nite was Keoki's, they have great food & people that work there. My soulmate & I had the greatest island to be on & the best condo to go home to.

    Neither of us wanted to leave for the mainland. To our hosts, we say Mahalo & Aloha,,,we will be back.

    Great location, tired, hot condo


    The views are incredible from this corner condo at Kuhio Shores. Great surfing and snorkling are right out your door (if the gate is working, which it was not while we were there) Carpet was dirty and worn and most everything there was very used. It was also unusually warm during our stay and overall ventilation was bad. There was a breeze in the unit only if the front door was kept open which is not a good situation. Overall, I'd say that a major refurbishing is due. With that and better fan location, this place would be worth much more a night than what we paid.

    Ocean front


    Wonderful ocean front, corner condo. The furniture & carpet need to be updated but the views distracted us from that. Amazing snorkeling right out our sliding door. Going to sleep by the sound of waves crashing. Breakfast on the patio with the waves, birds and ocean life near by made us realize we found a great spot.

    ... picturesque, drive, that ends in the small town of Koloa, which has one main road lined with store-fronts and the ruins of the sugar mill that used to operate in the town. It is charming and checking out the shops in town is a great way to spend a few hours.

    ... first two miles back was not that bad since we used the stream to keep us cool. We were able to put our hiking shoes back on so that made it so much better. We reached the beach and it felt as though we were back in the heat of Florida summer, the temperature drastically increased and the sun was shining strong on this part of the trail. We have 2 miles to go and half a liter remaining which we think is plenty. The last 2 miles was a beast, apparently ...

There was no ATM but a town nearby. We had a little hike along the side of the road we came on but we got an amazing view of the mountains and the town.

    The shops were now in view and we could see a bank so we went to withdraw cash and got change. As we did so the hourly bus passed us so we ...

    April 6th Sunday—Not a good weather day, again. Overcast all day. We tried to go out several times but rain and/or wind sent us back to our room. Finally just did the laundry- might as well take advantage of the down time. Then a drive around in the hills behind Kapa’a and a stop at the Noodle House for saimen ...
