KUHIO SHORES 416
This condo is perfectly located for a webcam. Oh, wait...click here.Watch the beautiful Pacific Ocean, surfers, dolphins, turtles and whales (in season) from this very popular top floor condo.
It’s no secret as to why this stunning one-bedroom oceanfront condo, just steps away from Lawai Beach, is one of the most popular at Kuhio Shores.
Step inside and watch your loved one’s eyes light up as you are greeted by jaw-dropping views of the Pacific Ocean, perfectly framed by a wall of floor-to-ceiling of windows. With convenient amenities like a building elevator, a 32” cable flat-screen TV with DVD player, wireless Internet, and an iPod doc for setting the mood, you can kick back and let this romantic escape revitalize your spirit.
Open the windows, cuddle up on the couch, and plan your “Garden Isle” adventures in the spacious living room while ceilings fans and a tropical breeze set you at ease. Cook alongside a sea of blue in the newly updated, open-concept kitchen, complete with granite countertops and an eat-in bar. Enjoy romantic dinners at the dining table while watching surfers catch a wave, or, depending on the season, keep a look out for Humpback whales while dining alfresco on your private lanai.
A plush king-size bedroom sleeps two in ultimate comfort. After a restorative night’s sleep, wake up to the soothing sound of crashing waves to start off a fun-filled day exploring the island.

The place is clean as described, right on the coast and we enjoyed coming home to our cozy beach condo at the end of each day. The location is excellent with stores, restaurants nearby and many attractions within minutes of car ride. We also enjoyed a morning of a spectacular whale watching fron our private Lanai, which was very special. Wished we had booked a longer stay! Mahalo and we look forward to returning to this gem of an island.

We really loved our stay over Christmas! We had high expectations coming in and we were not disappointed. The views and the sound of the ocean were incredible. Watching an oceanside sunset from the lanai with sea turtles swimming below you? It doesnt get much better than that! We enjoyed having a full kitchen to use; we always feel like locals when were bringing groceries home. :) Location was perfect for south side fun in Kauai; close proximity to food, amenities, and activities. A great launching point for the Na Pali coast, Waimea canyon, or any number of amazing snorkeling locations (one of our favorite snorkeling/eating spots? Right next door at the Beach House restaurant). We also appreciated the attention to detail: everything from the included rental car (amazing addition!) to the welcoming gift in the fridge. The communication with Great Vacation Rentals was excellent, fast, and friendly from start to finish. We fell in love with Kauai and Kuhio Shores and were already trying to plan a return trip. Highly, highly recommended!

It was a really good idea to offer a car rental as part of the package, as it was one less thing that I had to organize myself

Very helpful. My fiance made a special request for champagne to be in the unit before our arrival, and the staff was all over it.
Amazing view, clean property, has nearly everything we wanted. Very comfortable all around.

The BEST view! Everyday we saw sea turtles in the water, and the most beautiful sunsets. The bnb itself is a very cozy place with a great kitchen and bathroom, and just the perfect size for our party of three. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here!

We had a fabulous time! The views were amazing! We enjoyed watching the surfers and listening to the waves crash outside. The room was very clean and had everything we wanted. We were even provided some cookies and water on arrival! The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on. Thanks Great Vacation Retreats!

This Airbnb was the perfect little place for me and my husband to enjoy Kauai for the very first time. The view and balcony set up was amazing. Right against the beautiful ocean, waves roaring 24/7. Also, the added rental car made the trip all that much greater as we were able to explore north shore and Na Pali coast. It was all in all an amazing time and we will be staying here again on our next trip to Kauai

This place is absolutely incredible! We had the best time watching the sunset from our lanai, walking to the Spouting Horn, walking to breakfast and coffee in the morning. The view was completely breath taking. We would love to stay here again. Mark from GVR was also super helpful. He made activity suggestions and gave his honest feedback about the best ones and where we would get the most bang for our buck. The complimentary rental car was a huge bonus too. Could not have worked out better.

Fantastic location. We stayed in this condo for 7 days and had a really great time. The place is as described, right on the beach with a balcony overlooking the ocean. Surfers and turtles a plenty! The only real downside was no AC however we later found out that this is common on the island. More fans would have been great as the ceiling fans werent overly efficient. Full kitchen was awesome and wonderful king size bed. Bring bug spray for the late night balcony hangs!

Mark did comp us for on our beach item order (chairs, cooler, etc.) for the issues we had with the rental car. I do appreciate that.
The location is fantastic. We would come back just for the location but perhaps would request a different unit.
Aloha and thanks for the review. We are so sorry the rental car pickup was frustrating. We are checking our forms on our end and communicating with the car company so that doesn't happen again. Your feedback on the bathroom repair and blind repair were also very helpful. We are fixing those items right away.
Hope to see you again in the near future!

Any dealings we had were excellent, this time and in the past.
Kuhio Shores 416 is very comfortable, and has been updated since our last stay there 6 years before. While not very happy with the lanai furniture, (not really comfortable for older folks) it served the purpose for eating and watching the surf and surfers. The condo itself is well taken care of and the bed was extremely comfortable. It could use a bit more furniture in the living area, but we took the chair from the bedroom to have by the telephone table. Can't comment on the TV or music stuff as we never used it. All in all a great place for vacation.
Thanks for being such a great guest! We have a new chair ordered for the living room and new patio furnishings. We look forward to seeing you again!

First stay in kaiui and found this to be a very well maintained property. Bed is very comfortable and not having air conditioning was not a problem. Close to restaurants and shopping. No beach in front but not far away. No pool. Property manager is easy to reach. Could use more seating in living room and larger Tv. Lani is also small, but offers amazing views.
