The private lanai of Kuhio Shores 207 is like your own private SeaWorld, giving you a front row seat to watch sea turtles and whales swim and play. The condo boasts incredible ocean views, with Lawai Beach next door, just steps away.

Remodeled and updated, the condo is furnished with high-end decor and top-of-the-line finishes. Large floor-to-ceiling patio doors bring the outside into the living room, where you can lounge on an L-shaped couch and two chairs to watch TV. The couch also doubles as a sleeper sofa for extra guests.

All that sun and sand is guaranteed to make you hungry, and the modern, fully-equipped kitchen has everything you need to whip up meals and snacks. Surrounded by beautiful touches like granite counters and blue glass tile backsplash, cooking feels like less of a chore. Sit down with your ohana – family – around the L-shaped kitchen bar, enjoying a good meal and good conversation.

When it’s time to call it a night, rest your head in master bedroom’s king bed, as the sound of the waves lull you to sleep. A small sitting area has a desk and another couch to curl up with a good book. The elegant bathroom comes with a single vanity and shower with deep soaking tub.

Kuhio Shores offers an elevator, community laundry room, and communal BBQ area for guests to use.

All of our Great Vacation Retreats have modern amenities to make your stay as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Bluetooth stereos and Smart TVs offer the latest in entertainment, and our electronic charging stations mean your group will never have to fight over outlets. Plus, you'll enjoy easy check-in and added security from our keyless Point Central Lock system.

Why We Love This Home

1. Sea Turtles and Whale Watching: Grab a cold drink and a seat on the private lanai for your own personal ocean documentary, watching Sea turtles swim and play in the Pacific. In the winter months, you can also see whales swimming in the deep blue waters.

2. Central Location: The condo enjoys a prime location for shopping, dining and local sights, with the popular Beach House Restaurant next door and the Spouting Horn blow hole just down the walking path. Kukui’ula Shopping Village is just a few minutes away with shopping, dining and a farmers market every Wednesday.

3. Practical, Open Floor Plan: Thanks to an L-shaped peninsula in the kitchen, the cook can prep meals while still interacting with guests in the living room and on the lanai.

Just 30 minutes from the airport, this condo puts you near 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 (4 minutes) for hiking through native plants and to a stunning waterspout.

If you’re looking for a resort-style stay, we have you covered. For an additional fee you’ll have uninhibited access to the Poipu Beach Athletic Club, home to a fitness center, hot tub and sparkling pool with a waterslide and sand-bottomed kiddie section – everything you need to work out, cool off or wind down.

Our itinerary was plagued by several personal disasters that the GVR team handled for us personally, professionally, and promptly. This included a lodging change and a length of stay change for half of our group. The GVR team helped us through all of our personal drama with no drama. Super bunch of folks that go above and beyond!! Thanks for making our visit the best it could be.
Lovely, quiet, oceanside property, well appointed with walking access to everything.

Lovely to be able to see turtles right from the lanai. Maybe remind the cleaner to check the coffee filter. Coffee was left in ours and was moldy on arrival. Thanks! Corina

Actually stayed in 207 right next to 208 which has been pulled from rental pool temporarily.. Th e whole process with Great Vacation Retreats was flawless with very good instructions.Everything went just as it had be written to us. I would say it was very seamless and we were very happy. The property has great views and you are right next tomLawai beach which has good snorkeling. Any little problems were fixed immediately. The off site office has herbs and fruits they give you if you go there for any reason. A nice property with a really good location.

They were very helpful and took care of us including some fresh fruit and herbs we used in our cooking. Their attitude was a very Aloha spirit,
The unit served us very well. We loved watching the Sea Turtles from our Lanai and sunsets across Lawai beach from the west corner of the property.

Quick response. Knowledgeable. Professional. Friendly.
Both the unit and the complex were just the location we were looking for. Sunrise coffee from the lanai was a special time of the day. The unit was also easy to cool in the afternoon because of the early shade on the lanai.

Kuhio Shores #207 is beautifully decorated. Really made us feel we were in Kauai and the view from the balcony and room is amazing. Spent a lot of time on the patio enjoying the view. Saw whales fluking out in the distance. Would definitely come back to Kuhio Shores in the future.

This Condo had everything we could possibly need . I really appreciated that you had laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper etc. . Our last visit to Hawaii , my husband had to go to the store 3times to buy this stuff. This condo may have cost little more , but way worth it !
We could sit on our lanei and see the turtles swimming. AWESOME !

I coordinated a stay here for my parents and they had an amazing time. The place was as advertised and a great location. My parents were very impressed with the apartment. They frequently saw turtles (mostly just their heads) bobbing in the surf while sitting on the porch. The area around the apartment complex was kept very clean and well organized. The complex also offers some basic beach amenities (snorkle gear, coolers, boogie boards...) for a very reasonable price. Planning this trip with Amy was very easy as she was prompt to respond to my emails and accommodating to my needs. Amy was great leading up to the trip but my parents never met her as there as key code entrance. I (and my parents) would certainly recommend this location and would stay there again if we ever return to Kauai. Thanks Amy!

Very professional and prompt
The location of Kuhio Shores is second to none. The condo was adequate. I was expecting it to be more updated. It was well stocked with amenities but minor things need to be attended to. The dishes were cracked and chipped, there wasn't one sharp knife. The coffee pot did not work well. We never did get the wifi working. The kitchen needed a very good cleaning. The backsplash was dirty and sticky like it hadn't been cleaned for a long time. There were streaks on the kitchen appliances. There was dust behind most of the furniture. The cabinetry and cupboards were worn and scratched. The cleanliness and worn appearance of furnishings make this condo appear neglected. It is my opinion that this condo could use a very good deep clean and some updating with the furnishings. All those armoires and cupboards were scratched and marked. I would definitely stay at kuhio shores again, but choose a condo that has been recently remodelled. MANAGER RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your suggestions. We have scheduled a deep clean and have replaced the knives, coffee maker, etc.. It is very helpful for us to receive feedback from guests so we can improve upon the property. Mahalo,

My new husband and I spent 9 fantastic days on Kauai at Kuhio Shores unit 207. We had never rented a condo before, but this unit exceeded our expectations on just about everything! (cleanliness, fully stocked kitchen, beautiful bathroom, comfy kingsize bed, the view!) It looks even better than in online photos. We spent most of our time relaxing on the lanai watching the cute sea turtles! I would highly reccommend this condo to couples who need R&R, or prefer a more private sort of vacation (unlike at resorts) and like to cook their own meals (although there is a great restaurant right next door). We also preferred the bay side of the complex because it's more private and being above the ground level (again, for privacy). They even let us check out in the late afternoon on our last day because our flight didn't leave until later! Best trip ever! Thank you for your feedback! I really appreciate it:) Aloha

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. The location can't be beat. The views from the balcony were breath-taking, especially at night. The condo was very nice but left a few things to be desired. The sheets on the bed had been washed with chewed up gum on them. And the shower was in need of a big scrub down as there was quite a bit of mildew build up. Also, it would be great if the owner put in some type of pull down shades. We liked to cook our own breakfast in the morning but if we didn't do it by 6 am, it was way too hot! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. Aloha and thank you for your review! Since your stay the condo has been updated with new window coverings so hopefully that will help with sun/heat. I also appreciate you letting us know about the cleaning items. I will pass this onto the cleaning staff - they take great pride in their cleaning and I am sure they will make sure that doesn't happen again. Mahalo and Happy Holidays! Amy

Kuhio Shores 207 was wonderful- turtles in the bay every morning, close to all the attractions but far enough from the major hotels. The room was well equipped with everything we needed. The only amenity missing that keeps me from rating this 5 stars is there is no air conditioning. It was hot!

This condo exceeded our expectations. Gorgeous interior, the view is beyond great, and we absolutely love the location. Snorkeling few steps away, watch turtles from lanai. The interior was well thought-out and very comfortable. Only complaint was lack of a shade/window covering on the windows. It got hot in the morning until about 12:00! Would have kept it cooler if there was a window covering to draw/pull down. I would highly recommend this condo! I know we will definitely return!! Aloha, Thank you for your review! I am glad you enjoyed the condo. We actually had ordered new window coverings for this condo a couple of weeks ago that just arrived and were installed a couple of days ago so hopefully when you come back you won't have that problem:) Happy Thanksgiving!

I highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone who wants a beautiful, comfortable condo with all the amenities you could ever desire. This place wants for nothing. Every imaginable need is covered from luxurious bedding to spa beauty toiletries as well as outdoor sporting equipment like snorkeling gear, beach chairs. The owners have thought of everything and the renters benefit from their thoughtful considerations. This place far surpassed my expectations both from working with amy to book our dates, through the actual stay. I loved slipping into the high thread count sheets at night, listening to the ocean right outside my door and got to experience one of the most beautiful sunrises I have ever seen in my life. I especially loved sitting on the patio overlooking the ocean and watching my family snorkeling right below me, and playing with the large turtles that fill the bay. This place is advertised as a one bedroom honeymoon unit and while it is perfect for honeymooners, it is rea
