Not only is this a beautiful place in a great location, but I was delighted with how it was well-equipped and up to date. Many of the little things made a big difference. For example we were glad to have enough paper goods for the week and the beach gear was more than enough. It was super-easy to check out. We'd stay there again"

"Great location
This condo is very well equipped. The view is beautiful! And location is great. Our only complaint is that the A/C units are on lockdown. The only function able to change is on-off. I know that electricity is expensive but it never became as cool as we would have liked. We had to sleep with sheets only or no cover at all. Had to pull out all the fans for both bedrooms. If you’re that tight on the A/C cost, raise the cost of the weekly rental. "

"Location location location
Condo is a good, but you can’t beat the views. For the price, the unit is absolutely amazing. Make sure you go to The Beach House for dinner one night."

"Best Location!
Watched the surfer's in the morning, turtles and sunsets"
Sep 11, 2019 - Teri L., Broomfield, CO

"Great view good location
Condo was as indicated.
Kitchen was well stocked for any cooking desired; Ocean views and surfing were mesmerizing; easy access to walking paths nearby; close to Big Save for shopping; close to Poipu beaches with access to beach club for swimming and work out room.
Only issue was AC in second bedroom. Took too many hours to cool down and remained uncomfortably warm during the night. It finally cooled down later in the week. Overall a fine place to stay in Kauai except for the AC issue.
We would only recommend if AC issue is corrected "
Jul 11, 2019 - Garry N., Johns Island, SC

The moment you walk in this condo you will immediately be grateful you booked it. The view is to-die-for. I've visited Kauai many times and I can say this is one of the best direct oceanfront views on the island. It's not possible to be closer to the ocean. It almost feels like you're in it. In fact, some days I would walk into the condo and be alarmed how loud the waves were! You may not ever need to leave - literally. I loved how the condo was an end unit. Very quiet. The complex itself is quiet. There is a great snorkeling beach right next door, Lawai Beach and a great restaurant downstairs, Beach House. I can find little to complain about this condo. The only downside was having to leave!"

"Excellent family South Kauai condo!
My family w/ 2 teenage daughters had a terrific stay!
The unit was clean and well-equipped (kitchen and all incidental items).
The view was amazing and the location is a popular surf break so there were always surfers to watch.
Easy walk to local restaurants and shops.
Shipwreck beach was a good, close spot for a sandy beach. Snorkeling out front of the condo was an aquarium. The cliff hike (easy) at Shipwreck beach was a do-not-miss with postcard views. The Waipoo waterfall hike was also easy and had a rope-swing bonus at the end!
Thank you so much!

"Best location
Kuhio Shores 418 is the best vacation rental we've stayed in so far (unbelievable ocean view & sound, amazing bird & surfer watching experience and A/C kept us cool). One suggestion: tie down the seats & cushions of the sofa and love seat so they don't move after people sit on them (we had to rearrange them every day during our stay). "
Jun 12, 2019 - Ana C., San Jose, CA

"Great except!
The rental management company, poipu 365, was a total nightmare to deal with. She lied to us more than once, tried to keep our security deposit saying we were "untidy", staged pictures and then sent them to us. When I confronted her in our numerous emails back and forth, she finally gave us back our security deposit. I will admit we were lax taking the garbage out as but everything else she said was a lie. We do not recommend using this rental agency to anyone.

"Returning after 5 years.
We have rented this unit several times directly from the Owners. It has been 5 years since we last rented it and found some changes we didn't like. Out of respect to the owner we didn't write in the book within. When we last stayed there an in unit washer/ dryer was included which was only a small inconvenience. The biggest negative was the number and loudness of weddings at the Beach house next door. There were also a daily group of very loud surfer kids hanging out just below the unit. This was a change from our previous stays. Sadly we will not consider coming back to the wonderful Kuhio Shores 418 in the future. We could not, in good conscience recommend it to our friends or relatives in the future."
Apr 17, 2019 - PC M., Kalispell, Montana

"Picture Perfect
Such a beautiful setting and view. Great views of ocean, whales, turtles, surfers, and other sea life! Beach House Restaurant is next door and was the scene of 2 weedings and a proposal the week we were there. It would be hard to find a better setting."
Mar 25, 2019 - Patrick M., Birchwood, WI

"Nothing beats a corner unit facing the ocean!
We reserved this unit a year and a half ahead of time because we loved the pictures online of the floor to ceiling windows and the proximity to the ocean. We had stayed at Kuhio Shores 4 times before and therefore knew what we wanted. The corner unit has a lot of cross breezes! Went turned off the AC and opened the windows and enjoyed the crashing of the waves every single minute of our stay."
Feb 18, 2019 - Valerie T., brooklyn park, MN

"Kauai paradise
This is the perfect location if you are looking for a view. We enjoyed the ocean views from the lanai and even from the living room so much that we will be spoiled from now on! We watched surfers and snorkelers everyday from the lanai and enjoyed the beach right next door. The snorkeling is fantastic there! There one bedroom does not have air conditioning but was ok for us. The property is well taken care of and our only regret is not staying longer! The condo is centrally located and it was easy to get to restaurants and many activities in south kauai. "

"No better place to stay on the sunny south side of Kauai
This condo has a $15 million view at a great price. You literally cannot be closer to the ocean. The view is breathtaking. Plenty of free parking, a quiet and private location, and all with easy driving access to the may sights of the south side. The decor is perfectly comfortable and there are many thoughtful amenities provided by the host. All in all, it just doesn't get any better at this price point."

"Wonderful place to stay in Poipu
We stayed 6 nights in this fantastic condo, Kuhio Shores 418, and loved every minute of it. The condo is spacious and beautiful, and the view is unbelievable. We will definitely return!"

"Kuhio Shores #418
The most spectacular view of the ocean with watching surfing and weddings next door. Very comfortable two bedroom well equipped condo. Highest experience."
Dec 03, 2018 - , Port Townsend, WA

"Amazing Views
The pictures on the website doesn't do it justice. This is truly one of the best views on the entire island. The 4th floor perch on the corner gives you a 180 degree panorama of the ocean that constantly delivers that island feeling. From the lanai we saw many turtles and even a large pod of spinner dolphins doing their acrobatics. This is in addition to the daily surfer action all along the coast at this point. And you are a 5 minute walk from one of the best snorkel spots in Kauai. The amenities were nice (especially the air conditioning which came in handy at the peak hour of the day). The condo was clean and nicely furnished (although we never did turn on the TV when you had the amazing view outside). The location was great - 5 minutes to Poipu beach, 10 minutes from old Koloa town, and walking distance from a very nice collection of restaurants and shops (don't miss Merriman's). We definitely will be returning."

"Location Location
This 2 king bedroom, 2 bath unit fit the needs of 2 couples for our 10 days on Kauai. The unit has one of the best locations in the Poipu area with outstanding views from 2 sides. The unit is very well equipped for dining in which is a big plus on Kauai. Vicki the property manager, is incredibly responsive, throughout our booking and during our stay. Great experience."
Oct 19, 2018 - Margaret E.

"Splendid view
The great thing about Kuhio Shores 418 is it is the closest to the shore and the highest. Every evening we viewed the sunset from this condo. Right after sunset hundreds of Birds of Paradise would land in the palm trees by the condo. Beautiful birds, beautiful sunset!

I really appreciated the 2 air conditioner units to keep the condo cool.

Most every night, just prior to sunset the restaurant next door would have an outdoor wedding. For those concerned about noise, they stopped all music at 10PM every night. Nothing but the sound of waves at that point.

We will come back to Kauai and we will try to get 418 again.

Hope this helps you make your decision.

(oh, BTW, in the front closet is some snorkeling gear-- that might save you a few dollars).

Very Good."

"Not to be missed (and we miss it already!)
We felt so fortunate to have found this place to stay for a few nights while we were visiting the south side of Kauai. The location was absolutely ideal and we loved sitting on the deck and watching the surfers on the breaks for hours on end. The condo was very clean, comfortable and quiet and we were all sorry to have to leave. We would definitely stay here again the next time we visit the island!"

"The most unbelievable views
The views where breath taking. So close to the water that you could set for hours watching the waves, the surfers, and the sea turtles. The condo was great.
Aug 01, 2018 - Norman N., Bethel Heights, AR

"Awesome Views
Our group stayed at 418 Kuhio Shores and enjoyed a fantastic experience. The views from the corner end condo were simply magnificent. The condo was clean and fully outfitted including some beach gear. We were initially excited to see the arrival of the rose-ringed green parakeets to the nearby trees at dusk. We later learned that they are an invasive species that is threatening many of the local farmers' crops so our enthusiasm was tempered. Overall, we wished that we could have stayed longer."

"40th Anniversary Celebration
This was our second stay at Kuhio Shores #418. The condo is wonderful and the view is amazing. Would highly recommend."
Jul 06, 2018 - David H., Cedar Park, TX

Beautiful unit on 4th floor, stunning views. Equipped with snorkel gear, chairs, beach towels. Had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. AC was a plus. Balcony was amazing, we were out there more than inside! Not one negative, would absolutely stay here again."
Jun 20, 2018 - Jennifer D., Livermore, CA

"Great location
Nice rental unit. Could not have been a more pretty view for a hawaiian sunset. ON THE BEACH! Awesome. Only complaint was the unit was somewhat dirty - a film of muck on the counters and gnats on the balcony. "
Jun 05, 2018 - Melissa B., Danville, CA

"Vacation on Parakeet island
The unit was situated perfectly with two walls of Ocean views. We probably spent more time in the condo than normally because of the condo location on the ocean. There were always surfers to watch and thousands of parakeets came and went everyday."

"5 star condo I
I have rented several ocean condos on the different islands and this by far beats any on the ocean that I have rented I just wish that when I return to the islands this condo would be on each one! It was updated, clean, a kitchen with everything provided, even had champagne in the refrigerator!"

This was our second stay in this beautiful property. Everything about the condo is top notch - the views are incredible, great location near snorkeling, surfing, restaurants and attractions. The amenities in the condo are high quality and the property management company is very responsive. We are already planning a return visit."

"Kuhio 418 A Magical Place
My wife and I stayed for 7 wonderful nights at Christmas time 2017. To celebrate our 40 yrs of marriage. What a wonderful experience. Location Location Location. Best place to get away from it all and enjoy the Ocean and Hawaii at it's best. "

"Amazing sunsets
We had a perfect birthday celebration in Kuhio Shores 418 condo. The views are wonderful with gorgeous sunsets each evening on the sunny side of the island. There is a convenient small sandy beach on the side of the condo complex. It is a great location on the island with easy access to shopping, great restaurants and great beaches. The condo was nicely appointed and the owners went out of their way to make our celebration special. "

"Our week in paradise
Kuhio Shores 418 was a remarkable property! The ocean views were amazing! I would return to this condo again. It is close to so many resorts, restaurants, and shopping. The sweetest aroma from all the flowers on the property greets you as you arrive."
Sep 18, 2017 - Sharon S., Sun Lakes, Arizona

"What a view! Perfect location and value
My family (hubby, two teens - 18 & 15 years old, plus myself) spent a week at this condo. The picture is spot on, your right st the beach (4th floor) where you can watch the surf while relaxing on your balcony. It was clean and very convenient to great places to eat, plus a 5 minute walk from a sandy beach for traditional laying out. Great snorkeling. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Much cheaper than staying in a hotel. "

"Simply Amazing!!!
We stayed in Kuhio Shores 418 for 4-nights to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. It was myself, my mom, and my two sisters. None of us had ever been to Kauai before and we were blown away. The views from the room are literally breathtaking! And, the beds were very comfortable and we all slept well every night. Thank you!"
May 26, 2017 - Michele W., Carlsbad, CA

"Kuhio Shores #418
The condo was well maintained and stocked with everything one would need. We were very satisfied with the unit, the beautiful views, and the "entertainment" with several weddings below us on the lawn at the "Beach House Restaurant." Thanks."
Apr 04, 2017 - , Tigard, OR

"Amazing View
Overall the spot was excellent. Unfortunately I arrived to an unmade bed, dirty towels, and an unclean condo. The problem was fixed by staff arriving the next morning to clean. I didn't think it was fair to pay for my first night. This vacation rental is expensive and to pay for something I didn't receive was disappointing. Instead I received $75 for the Beach House restaurant. $75 is far from what I paid for that first night. The place was cleaned quickly and not to very high standards. Again, a huge disappointment for what I paid.
Apr 04, 2017 - , Calgary, Alberta

"Most Amazing Trip!
This trip was absolutely amazing! #418 played a big role in that! The views from the condo were stunning! We saw sea turtles daily along with the surfers and we even saw whales and dolphins one day! Absolutely amazing! Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the waves was so soothing. The condo was equipped with all that we could ask for!"
Apr 03, 2017 - Christy B., Wheaton, IL

"Beautiful corner unit in Kohio Shores
We have stayed at Kohio Shores at least 5 times, and our recent stay in 418 was lovely. The view to the west and north makes for continuously spectacular scenery and wonderful sunsets. We were greeted by champagne and cooled glasses, and the condo was ready for us to enjoy our stay, including very thoughtful stocking of towels, soaps, condiments etc. The two bedrooms each have ocean views and own bathroom. Can't ask for more."

"Pristine Kaui location with superb view
My family and I stayed in 418 and absolutely loved our entire stay. The panoramic ocean view was priceless. Access to the beach is literally just a few steps away. Room was in great shape. Also, Weber BBQs outside were very clean and high quality. Vicki at Poipu also was very helpful and responsive, especially when a family member left something behind. Definitely would recommend!"
Sep 23, 2016 - Marc G., Rancho Cucamonga, CA

"Great View
In order to experience a breeze, the front door needs to be open. Also, the 2nd bedroom suffers because it lacks air flow. The cleaning company needs to step it up and be sure to remove the mold from the showers and clean where there is obvious dirt. The view was amazing: turtles, surfing, and dolphins. Also to experience the parrots in the morning and again in the evening was priceless. Property Management is very nice and the property is nicely maintained. A little price to be uncomfortable....I get it, it Kauai."

"Kuhio Shores 418 Stay
The condo location on the top floor was superb! 180 degree views of the Pacific out the windows. Beautiful sunset views! We cooked in most of the nights in the kitchen (which was small but serviceable). The condo itself was small, 2b/2b, but since we were outside doing activities, it didn't really matter. The unit had a w/d that was great to use. Although the view was stupendous, the furniture was pretty worn, the beds had very cheap bedspreads, sheets, and pillows. In fact, we were in the MB and the spread on our bed had a dark stain on the underside...eeew...and the pillows were stained with sweat (from other tenants) eeewww. It just didn't seem clean! I called the property manager, Vicki, and she was not much help (definitely she was not a people person with regard to dealing with renters/tenants). The rugs in the bathrooms needed to be washed prior to our checking in, but they weren't. The pillows on the LR couch smelled sweaty. As nice as the view was in 418, I don't think I would come back unless the owners maintained it and spruced it up a little bit. Activities we liked were snorkeling, hiking up in the north, zip lining in Koloa, looking at the Kauai "Grand Canyon", and enjoying the Tahiti Nui bar/grill up in Hanalae Bay. The island and the activities were great; the apartment amenities, not so great."

"Kaui Vaction
The unit was nice and well equipped. Great view. However, it was very hot and humid during our stay. The way this unit sits on the property it does not get a breeze. We were very uncomfortable especially at night. The bedrooms need air conditioning units. Also, the listing says the 2nd bedroom has a TV but there was no TV. It would have been perfect if there was AC!
Aug 23, 2016 - Bryan B., Gilbert, AZ

"Awesome Location and View
As close to the ocean as you can get. Beautiful views. Condo nicely furnished. Only downside is the lack of airflow through the condo even with all windows and doors open. Our favorite place was sitting on the lanai watching sea turtles in the waves and drinking Mai Tais."
Aug 04, 2016 - Annjeanette C., Phoenix, AZ

"Amazing Views
The condo was perfect for two couples and offered amazing views and easy access to the beach. We loved watching the surfers everyday and even got to see an older Hawaiian gentleman net fish off of the rocks with the help of his son. We will definitely stay here again."
May 06, 2016 - Raele S., Kapolei, HI

"Great Location
Great views of the ocean. Watched the surfers, sunsets, whales, dolphins and turtles. Windows on 3 sides - so lots of good air flow. Well equipped - both kitchen and beach accessories. Small beach with snorkeling very close. Mall with restaurants about a 15-20 min walk away. Beach House restaurant next door wasn't that great. It would be nice if the property had a swimming pool. They provide reasonably priced access to a club with tennis, gym and pool, but would be nicer to have it onsite. "
May 06, 2016 - , Victoria, BC

"Amazing Views!
The condo has amazing views, it was like standing in water, it was just that close! The open space and set up of the rooms worked perfectly for the two couples, and even though it doesn't have large windows or lanai off the bedrooms, but you still can hear the ocean thru the Windows. The information provided by the agency and the wonder service I received was much appreciated and reassuring as well. "

"The best condo at Kuhio Shores
We have rented this condo twice and have never been disappointed. The views are amazing, the breeze coming in kept us cool. There is no one walking by the bedroom window because the walkway stops at the front door. It is always clean and the staff very friendly. Snorkeling right out the condo is wonderful, be sure to rent your equipment from Boss Frog right next to the condo. Easy pick up and drop off. Book this condo early as is always gets booked early."

"Poipu vacation rental
Great Place, excellent management of rental, gorgeous view.
No air conditioning, but fans and cross ventilation"
Jan 29, 2016 - Robert A., Middleton, WI

"Home by the Sea
We stayed at #418 for four nights, including New Year's Eve. The home was exactly as described: right on the ocean, with the sound of crashing waves every day, and a view from every window. (and the house is full of windows!) We thought we'd miss air conditioning, but with the ocean breezes and good shades for daytime sun, we were comfortable. They also provided fans and every room has a ceiling fan. There were plenty of tables and seats on the patio so that you can enjoy the view. There was a great snorkeling area just steps away from the house as well as the Beach House restaurant next door which had great views, good food, but was quite expensive. There were strip malls nearby with gift shops, restaurants, ice cream, etc. and a Longs Drug was close by as well. We drove to nearby Poipu Beach for the fireworks on New Years Eve. We also spent the day there swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing. It was a safe family beach with a lifeguard. There was even a Monk Seal on the beach while we were there. The beds and bathrooms were great. There was plenty of beach gear in the closet for our use. Overall, the home fit our needs very well and the sound of the ocean put us to sleep at night. Sometimes, it was almost too loud and we would have to shut the windows. Especially with the morning bird noise. However, you do not go to Hawaii to lay in bed and sleep late. There is too much to see and do. "

"A Very Good Vacation Rental
We stay at a lot of vacation rentals. This one was very well equipped. Nice having all of the beach toys. The bottle of champagne was a nice touch. Good corner unit offering expansive views. All of the dishes, glassware, silverware - matched. Many other places look as if they bought this and that at swap meets. Good wireless internet. Good instructions and received them way in advance. We would return."

Our week at Kuhio Shores 418 was simply that - Amazing. The condo is is great conditions and was clean. What makes this such a special place is the location. You cannot find a better view and have a spectacular show daily with the sunset. We really enjoy the south shore and this condo is in our favorite area. Convenient to dining and shopping but still off the beaten path. Highly recommend!!!"

"Wonderful stay at the Penthouse in Poipu
The Penthouse is the place to stay in Poipu. We have stayed at the Kuhio Shore two other times and had great stays both time. This time we stayed in the four floor Penthouse. The view was spectacular! The layout was great. We slept 5 comfortably, with one using the Aero bed. The place was clean and the deco matched the island theme. We will be back again next year. We highly recommend staying at the Kuhio Shores and if the Penthouse is available give it a go."

Our experience with VRBO was awesome!! Communication from the very beginning was great!! Any time I had a question, it was answered in a timely manner. The condo "penthouse" was more than we ever imagined!! It was very clean, and the description of it almost did it justice!! The view was breathtaking!! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our 40th wedding anniversaries!! I would recommend Kuhio Shores 418 for a wonderful vacation!!"

"Heaven on earth
We have stayed all over the islands and have come back to this property many times. It is not only the best unit in the building, it is quite possibly the best unit on the planet. The proximity to the ocean is mind boggling. If you were any closer, you would be wet! The views of the ocean, the beach, the sunsets, the surfers, and the turtles are unparalleled. You can't beat having a beach right on site. The owners take considerable pride in maintaining luxury, cleanliness, and that "new" feeling that other remodeled rentals lose overtime. This unit is the gold standard that we compare all other vacation experiences to. The location on the south shore is the perfect combination of authentic Hawaii and mainland convenience.

It's impossible to go wrong staying at this condo! "

"Perfect Stay in Paradise
The location on Kaua'i was perfect, literally minutes from everything needed and within walking distance to the beach. The accommodations were excellent and the people were friendly to work with. The entire visit was perfect! "

"Room with a View
Condo could not have been in a better location. Surfers, turtles and great snorkling. The sights and sounds were paradise. Saw 3 weddings during our stay. Wireless internet was flawless. Kitchen was well stocked. Would have liked a television in the 2nd bedroom."

"Best view and location on Kauai
The minute we stepped into the condo we opened the blinds and were amazed at the view. It looked just like the pictures on the website. From our lanai we saw the surfers and the turtles and the beautiful sunsets. we actually saw a whale breaching the last day we were there and it was past whale season. We also saw a wedding from our penthouse window overlooking the fabulous Beachhouse Restaurant. This restaurant is awesome. They also have a bar area you can go to during the day. The best snorkeling area is steps away from the condo. Kuhio Shores is the best location on Kauai for exploring the island. This was the first time we visited Kauai and hopefully, will not be the last. We went up North and visited all the beaches along the way ending up at Kee Beach where we saw a beached Monk Seal resting and then going back to the ocean. We saw so many turtles in and out of the water at Whalers Cove in walking distance from the condo. The upscale eating and shopping area at Kukui'ula Village Shopping Center is only a 15 minute walk. We walked there for dinner and just brought a flashlight for the way back. The Dolphin, Merrimans and The Living Market are excellent. They also have the best Farmer's Market on Wendesdays and music on Friday evening. The town of Koloa is nearby also filled with great shopping and restaurants. We drove to Wiamea Canyon and went to a secret beach near Allerton Gardens and Mahaulepu Beach past the Hyatt on a rutted road. It's worth the drive.
The condo itself is spacious and roomy for 2 couples. Christine and Vicki were very helpful with anything we needed. The only negative thing I can say is that the first few nights were warm for sleeping in the smaller bedroom even with the windows open and the fans on but was fine after that. If you need to print your boarding passes you can do that at the Business Office at the Lawai Beach Resort across the street. Mahalo for the best vacation we could have asked for. "

"Relaxing on Kauai
This a perfect location for vacationing in Kauai. Looking down on the ocean, watching the turtles and surfers and right next door to the best restaurant on the island, The Beach House. Life is good."

"Honeymoon stay
It was a breath taking view and a awesome area. We were in suite condo 418 that was right below the beach only complaint and the reason I would not stay stay there is they had 3 evenings of weddings right below us and the music was loud and really late one night when we were in bed.. felt like the band was in are room..we went here for a nice quiet time on our deck but it was ruined on three days of our stay..other than that the place was awesome..
thanks Glenn "

"Gorgeous view and location
Loved the gorgeous view and location. Great place to relax. Internet service was not good at all, but luckily we didn't need it much - too busy enjoying the island and the view from our beautiful condo! Wish we could have stayed longer!"

"Wonderful stay
We loved the Kuhio Shores 418. It was very comfortable and conveniently located. We would certainly stay there again on our next visit."

""A little disappointed"
The master bathroom was under construction when we arrived. The sink area in particular. So that area was dusty/dirty, etc.
For the price paid, I was disappointed. Everything else was fine."

"Poipu Paradise
The place/ view was gorgeous. The cleanliness of the condo was not the best. There was dark long hair all in the shower and in one of the beds. Major turn off for myself and my quest. Nothing could beat the sounds of waves crashing all night and day.If you are tall, beware, the ceiling fans are low and can be difficult to maneuver.Snorkeling is a daily treat right outside the condo.Mahalo"

"Oceanfront Luxury! ONO!
Thank you for sharing this gem of a place with us. The location was steps from the Beach House restuarant and we enjoyed watching sunsets from our room! Yes! Really that spectacular! Owners thought of everything to make this a top-notch place (and clean to the extreme!) Loved the great beach chairs and boards. We searched before booking; save your time-just book it! Mahalo!"

"Great View, Great Location
We watched the surfers every day and the turtles in the waves. Sounds of the surf lulled us to sleep at night. "

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. The views were spectacular and the location was optimal. We were within minutes of so many attractions and activities. "

"Without a doubt, the best place to stay in Kauai
We decided to bring our folks back to Kauai after they thought their "Hawaiian Days" were over, after 5 trips to Kauai. We chose this unit over all the others because we wanted to have some place where they would enjoy watching the action without having to go out and travel every day. They both have difficulty walking. My sister joined us also for her first visit to Hawaii.
Everyone loved the unit because we could watch the sea turtles, surfers and sunsets easily from the balcony and windows. We also oversaw four Sunset weddings on the lawn of the Beach House Restaurant in our 16 days there.
You could hear & feel the ocean, right below you. Snorkeling was just steps away at the best spot on Kauai. Equipment rentals were available there too.
2 bedroom with 2 king beds and one blow-up bed for the living room worked great for us.
We look forward to our next visit.
John & Janet take great pride in their unit and care very much about their guests.
Thank you, Ashley Allen & Katrin
