What can I tell you other than "WOW"! Imagine having morning tea & coffee spotting turtles, along with watching spinner dolphins & breaching humpbacks, all in the personal comfort of your pajama shorts while sitting on your private fourth story lanai. If you want to see the "sea" and not the "sea of humanity", the views from this suite are...

The pictures of the unit I rented were more flattering than the actual unit. Very outdated and small. I would not recommend more than 2 people occupy it. Great location, but the ocean was extremely loud every day and evening.

This is an older building that is well maintained, the amenities will depend on the unit. But you can't get any closer to the water, have a sunset view, and then have great surfing to watch from the lanai. Highly recommended for snorkeling and we saw turtles along the surf each morning. And those sunsets. Oh my!

We stayed in #406 for a week to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. First, let me say that the owner, Denise Ball, was so helpful and easy to work with. After we secured the condo, she sent us four pages of suggestions for eating, activities and sight seeing. Also, we received very detailed instructions on how to find Kuhio Shores...

We have stayed in this complex 3 times now (we love the snorkeling next door) and this unit was the best one in terms of being well equipped. We were a little unsure about being on the first floor but actually it felt quite private and it was like the green grass out front was an extension of our space...nice...

We have stayed at different units in these condos twice. We love the location! We chose units facing east. That way you get morning sun but it's much cooler in the evening. The unit we stayed at most recently worked the best for us (#104). It had locking shutters which really helped with keeping the bedroom and living room cool...

We stated at Kuhio Shores # 115 for 17 days. What a wonderful time we had. 25 yards from the ocean, first floor. A beautiful view with a condo that was just what we needed. We like to cook a lot of our meals and the kitchen was well appointed. Even with no A/C it was cool, all rooms had...

We have stayed in this condo 7 times now over the last 10 years - and it gets more fabulous each year. They owners take very good care and keep updating things. They are so nice to work with - just a pleasure. The condo is right on the water where you can watch turtles feed. You hear the sound...

We stayed here for a week of relaxation. We travel to Kauai quite often and were looking for a place to stay when it's just the 2 of us. We found it.
