We stayed for 5 nights. The location is really perfect. One of the recommended snorkelling beaches in Kauai is adjacent to the property. The condo is on the ground floor and gets sun on the window in the morning but not later in the day; this is ideal as the condo does not get too hot (there is no aircon). The condo is well equipped with good quality fittings etc - I cooked a number of meals and all the necessary kitchen gear was there. Everything worked and nothing was worn out. The outside of the property is really well kept - the gardeners spend a lot of time on the lawns and it shows. There is no problem parking in the private car park - although you need to make sure you display a pass to avoid being towed.
There are a number of upmarket restaurants in the shopping complex close by (walking distance) and also some good quality food shops - these are all expensive (but no more than anywhere else on Kauai). The restaurant next door is really good - we spent our last night there watching the sun go down.
Apart from snorkelling we enjoyed going to Waimea Canyon and also the Allerton Garden (very close)
Despite catastrophic rains on Kauai North Shore, we had an amazing time on the south shore. Very close to Allerton Gardens, Brennecke's Beach, Spouting Horn, 30 minutes from the airport in Lihue, lots of fish to see snorkeling in Lawai Beach next door, and turtles in front of the condo. If the surf is up, move the condo's chairs to the front ocean side and watch the surfers and the turtles. The condo was very well kept, very clean and very well appointed. Lots of great restaurants nearby for the foodies. We very much enjoyed our stay there, and would definitely consider staying there in the future! Lynn & Jo....
This condo is located on the ground floor about fifty feet from the ocean. The ocean side wall is all glass with sliding panels for privacy. There is no A/C but none is needed since there is a constant breeze blowing in and there are ceiling fans in the BR and dining area. The kitchen is very well equipped, the best I've ever seen. You are about 35 minutes from the airport but on this island you are never far from anything, really. The feel one gets is that of a small town spread out over a large area. I got nothing but very nice treatment from every local I met. As far as finding the property is concerned, I was already familiar with the area so I can't really judge the instructions. Use the GPS map directions on your smart phone and you won't have any problems.

My wife and 2 daughters (8 and 6) travelled to Kauai and had the pleasure of staying at Kuhio Shores #103. The condo is ground level and opens on to a very well kept grass area that overlooks a beautiful bay area. This condo faces east so we were able to watch some beautiful sunrises and we would stroll down the grassy area to watch the sun set in the evenings. A short walk from Lawai Beach which is likely the best snorkelling on the island.
Our daughters slept on the pullout couch while my wife and I shared the bedroom. The apartment is well equipped to make your stay comfortable (beach chairs, cooler, beach umbrella, towels etc).
Great spot that we would return to.
Excellent stay at Kuhio shores. Great condo & location. One day all the sea turtles we up in the small cove by the apt. We jumped in & went swimming with them!!!! 5 stars!
