5050 Lawai Road Kuhio Shores #418 Koloa/Poipu, Kauai, Hi 96756 United States

The ULTIMATE beachfront Kauai condo vacation rental! PRIVACY combined with absolutely indescribable ocean, surf, and beach views. This FOURTH FLOOR, west corner unit of Kuhio Shores, is sixty feet above the waves, steps from the beach, in a luxury Kauai vacation condo on the sunny south shore in Poipu, Kauai. Only seagulls enjoy these views, and the sunsets are a once in a lifetime.... everyday occurrence! Like being on the top deck of a cruise ship, sixty feet above the crashing surf.



We searched the world for this incredible Kauai vacation oceanfront condo, and spent a fortune creating an absolute masterpiece of design, and world class quality. We believe it to be the finest Kauai condo vacation rental available. Everything is absolutely brand new, the hard surfaces of this condo consists of the finest marbles and granites, coupled with top-of-the-line fixtures, and tastefully subdued Hawaiian artwork and furnishings.


The living/family room is spacious and has a dramatic and truly breathtaking ocean, beach and surf line view. This FOURTH FLOOR END UNIT #418 is one of the CLOSEST TO THE OCEAN, and is one of the only Kauai Vacation Condos that can capture a TRUE 180 Degree sit down beach/ocean/surf view. As you can see, the corner location allows TWO FLOOR TO CEILING GLASS WALLS.



The ocean reefs are directly below your lanai, where you can easily spot sea turtles, dolphins, and whales cruising just outside your balcony! The LIVING ROOM features high quality and tastefully decorated Hawaiian furnishings, a large color Television with remote control, cable television, a VCR for your viewing pleasure, and a high quality stereo system with remote.
This is a fabulous place to kick back and let your senses soak up the sights, sounds, and smells that are Kauai, nature at its finest!!


The sounds of the ocean are in every room!!! You can whale watch, enjoy beautiful Kauai sunsets, count dolphins and turtles, or enjoy some of the best surfing action on the SUNNY SOUTH SHORE of Kauai while inside this unit. The dining area features a spacious high quality glass table, and four restaurant quality chairs. There is also kitchen counter seating for two people on swivel chairs.


The kitchen is gorgeous, and the setting cannot be duplicated! Imagine creating a gourmet dinner while watching surfers catch some of the best waves on the Island 100 feet AWAY!!
This gourmet kitchen is fully equipped including dishwasher, microwave, stove, oven, blenders, mixers, steamer, coffee maker, crock pot, toaster, pots and pans, quality cutlery, and virtually everything you need to create wonderful meals! Solid granite counter tops and the latest "white on white" appliances.


If you don't feel like cooking, take a one minute stroll along the beach and enjoy a meal at one of the finest restaurants in Kauai, The "Beach House" Restaurant.
There are TWO incredible OCEAN VIEW BEDROOMS, each with ample closet space for extended stays. This is the ONLY location at Kuhio Shores Resort where the BEDROOMS feature OCEAN VIEWS.


The FIRST BEDROOM SUITE features a terrific OCEAN VIEW, a King Size bed ,and classic Hawaiian furnishings. It is tastefully decorated utilizing local artists. The bed is a Simmons Beauty Rest (firm) and has an attractive Ralph Lauren bedding. Your sleep comfort was the highest priority here! Ceiling fans, COOL OCEAN BREEZES, controllable lighting, color television, and a private bathroom and shower complete this suite.


The SECOND BEDROOM also has a BEAUTIFUL OCEAN VIEW and a King bed. It is also tastefully decorated with local artists works and between the trade winds, the soothing ocean sounds and the views...You may never sleep this well again!

    Annjeanette C from Phoenix, AZ recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    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.

    a guest from Victoria, BC recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    a guest from Eden Prairie, MN recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    Cynthia L from Bozeman, MT recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    • Manager Responded on 1/29/2016

      Thank you Cynthia for return stay to Kuhio Shores 418. We are glad that you enjoyed your visit, and we hope to see you for a third, fourth, and fifth time. Mahalo for taking the time to write this wonderful review.

    Brett S from Brandon, SD recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    • Manager Responded on 1/29/2016

      Brett, we are happy that your New Year's Eve was enjoyable. Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. We hope that you will come back this New Year's and spend it with us here on the island of Kauai.

    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!!!

    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.

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!!

    Elise W from Cooper City, Florida recommends this vacation rental

    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!

    Susan M from Colchester, CT recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    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

    Ashley/Katrin T recommends this vacation rental

    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
