KUHIO SHORES 208

Get your Hawaiian vacation started out right with incredible ocean views, modern and updated living spaces and convenient access to the beach. Kuhio Shores 208 offers all that and more for your ohana – family – to have the best getaway ever.

Meticulously maintained, the condo is fully equipped with all the basics plus several thoughtful extras. The kitchen is stocked with a starter kit of Kauai Coffee Company coffee. In the bathroom, you’ll find complimentary Island Soap and CandleWorks toiletries.

Start and end your day out on the gorgeous lanai, with the Pacific stretching out before you. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow you to enjoy the ocean views from the living room, curled up on the couch or oversized armchair.

Flex your cooking muscles in the open and airy kitchen, featuring ample counter and cabinet space, tile counters and full-size appliances. The dining room table next to the kitchen seats four comfortably for meals or a friendly card game.

Neutral décor creates a welcoming and calming ambiance in the master bedroom, which comes with a king bed, flat-screen TV and closet. Getting ready for the day is a pleasure in the bathroom, offering a walk-in shower with glass doors and a large vanity sink.

Kuhio Shores has an elevator for guests to use to get themselves and their luggage up to the condo.

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. Prince Kuhio’s Surf Break: Grab a blanket and get ready for a show right in your backyard! Prince Kuhio’s surf break, between Prince Kuhio and Lawai beaches, is a popular spot for surfers to show off their skills in the crashing waves.

2. Watch Sea Turtles from the Lanai: There’s nothing better than watching sea turtles playfully navigate the waves in the Pacific, except maybe watching with a cold drink from the comfort of your private lanai. During the winter months, you might even catch glimpses of whales and dolphins swimming in the blue waters.

3. Central Location: In one direction, you’ll find the popular Beach House Restaurant. In the other, the Spouting Horn blowhole delights visitors. If you’re looking for shopping options, the Kukui’ula Shopping Village has numerous shops, galleries, and a gourmet farmers market.

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.

Guest review taken from VRBO on 10/20/19 for Kuhio Shores 208 --- This condo was a perfect spot for our 4 day trip in Kauai. The whole island is only 3.5 hour drive from beginning to end and this was pretty much smack dab in the middle. We were able to go snorkeling with the turtles on the north shore one day and then hike Waimea Canyon the next. The condo was super clean and very well equipped. I woke up every morning to watch the sunrise, drink my coffee and read my book while listening to the ocean crashing on the rocks; DREAM LIFE! Its also within walking distance to The Beach House, the beat Tuna entree on the island (maybe in the country!). My husband and I are already talking about when we come back, this will be the place we will stay! Amazing communication with the staff and easy to check in and navigate to. Love love love this place! --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Mahalo, Anna!! You have been great guests! We're happy you had such a memorable time on Kauai and that you enjoyed your accommodations!

Guest review taken from Airbnb on 9/5/19 for Kuhio Shores 208 --- Our stay in #208 was absolutely amazing! Great location and the ocean view was spectacular. Right outside our lanai we watched turtles swim around us every evening, that was one of the highlights of our trip. The space was very clean with great furnishings. The king sized bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, and in fact the pillows were so comfortable too. Beaches and shops are close by. Communication via emails and texts were responded to promptly. We even upgraded our rental car and that was an easy process to do. Everything went smoothly and over all, we were very happy with our stay and already looking forward to coming back and booking again with Great Vacation Retreats --- MANAGER'S RESPONSE: Mahalo, Melody!!

Guest review taken from VRBO on 7/19/19 for Kuhio Shores 208 --- Beautiful condo, great location This is a beautiful condo for a couple. It is clean, bright, and seems recently renovated. I love the view of the bay from bed (watching sunrise each morning from bed was lovely). It is spacious, clean, and well-furnished. The patio is comfortable, and in the evenings you can see turtles swimming from the patio. Well-equipped kitchen, and has boogie board, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, sand toys, snorkel gear for you to use. Has parking easily available, and convenient to be able to walk next door to Beach House restaurant (or grounds around it) for the best views of sunsets and sunset surfers. Would love to stay again!

Kuhio Shores was by far our favorite stay in Poipu! The condo was nothing less that luxurious. When we arrived, the home was immaculately clean, not to mention more stylish and comfortable than could have expected. So cozy & relaxing. The Lanai was furnished thoughtfully and the lounge chairs were very comfortable. The couch was plush and the tv system was easy to use and allowed us to watch Netflix and movies in the evenings. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could need and more & was spotless. The bathroom was nice, and we appreciated the beach towels and extra beach supplies left for our use. The bed in the master is a little on the firm side, so if you like firm, youll love this space. Truly a gem, and we will definitely be back. We would be there now if we could!

As of this writing (August 30, 2018) most of the building is being renovated with scaffolding, construction works, trucks and everything you would expect with such a project. Although the Unit (208) has been refurbished quite nicely, the building is old. The laundry system is archaic. Washers/dryers are available down the hall for USD 2.50 per cycle and require quarters. Linens and towels are well-worn and probably should be replaced. Grounds are well maintained. Great Vacation Retreats is responsive but offsite. Manager's response: Aloha Frank, Thank you for leaving a review. Unfortunately, because of the age of the building the only way to AC to be installed was to remove the washer and dryer. Most Kuhio Shores condos didn't have them originally anyway, but now it isn't possible for them to be installed. We are very sorry about the sheets. We usually remove sheets from our inventory at the first site of wear or staining and we obviously missed this. I have let housekeeping know for the future. The work being done to the exterior lanai's will be done very soon so we hope that you might come back and visit us at this property or another in the future. Thanks for being great guests.

She answered all my questions about the place and Kauai (especially after the floods) and was also very friendly.

Unit 208 was absolutely perfect. We did not have a single complaint or suggestion to make it better. The condo was spotless and smelled so fresh every time we walked inside. The space was very roomy for 2 people and the views were spectacular. The proximity to the beaches on either side of the condo made this a very fun place to stay at. On top of that, the location was a prime spot to do all the activities in the south and west side of Kauai. We absolutely cherished every minute we spent there and are already planning on returning next year.
