A guest from Minneapolis, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2017 We had a wonderful stay in the unit. We love the location and layout, and everything was clean and comfortable.
A guest from Granada Hills, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2016 Second time we have stayed in 119 and 3rd time at the condo. The only complaint my wife had was the ocean was too loud! Great location and the grounds and BBQ area are well kept.
Judith P. from La Mesa, California recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2016 We had a fantastic time staying in this great condo located at a perfect spot on the ocean. We saw whales breaching, sea turtles, surfers and beautiful sunsets.
Darla F. from Grants Pass, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2016 This location is my favorite so far, I've stayed 3 times in the complex the views are stunning, being able to walk out to the grass or to the beach was terrific! The upgrades are super nice, loved the kitchen and the bathrooms are new and nicely done I'd give it a 10. (Note couldn't find any instructions for the TV or internet also no remote for the bedroom TV)
A guest from Huntington Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2016 My family really enjoyed our stay at this location in Kauai. It was very comfortable with everything we needed and more! We enjoyed the well-equipped kitchen and being able to make many of our meals and when we wanted to go out, so many locations were so close by. We enjoyed many sunsets and afternoons out on the lanai and look forward to returning very soon! Thank you!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Rachel, we look forward to you and your family returning to our lovely condo. Mahalo for taking the time to write a lovely review for us.
A guest from Fullerton, California does not recommend this property. Stayed for 12 days in May, 2016 We were excited to stay here at Kuhio Shores. It was a huge let down. The location was Awesome. Great sunsets. The condo was just OK. It needs a lot of TLC. Supplies were scarce. TP. Paper towels. Trash bags Etc. It was crowded all the time on the grass area behind the Condo. This is a popular Surfing Spot. Locals here every day. Leaving Trash. Staring in the Windows. Peeing in the bushes. No Privacy. Do not stay here if you want a Hawaiian Relaxing Expierence.
Ronald P. from Royersford, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2016 You can't get any closer to the water! Very pleasant ocean breezes and the sound of the waves is very relaxing. The unit was a good size and had all the amenities. Only negative is that tenants/guests using our outdoor furniture in order to enjoy the view; this was not a very comforting feeling. Signs should be posted to inform others not to do this.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Ronald, Mahalo for your comments and letting us know others were using your furniture. We will definitely get some signage for private use. Thanks again!
Melinda E. from Lake Stevens, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in April, 2016 We have stayed at this property and this unit on prior visits, and will be coming back. The location is great - so close to snorkeling and we could watch the surfers every day. The rental experience was easy and the communication with us professional.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo for your review, we appreciate it deeply.
Karen C. from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 This is probably the best location in all of Poipu. Unfortunately, the unit was in desperate need of a remodeling. I heard after our stay that a remodel would be done after we left. The unit is very expensive and I think charging that much in that condition was outrageous. Worn furniture, floors, mattresses, lack of supplies in the kitchen, bathroom tub drain that would not drain, etc, etc. With the shabby condition, the unit should have been discounted. The property management staff was not very responsive and my security deposit is still not returned to me--2 and a half weeks later. Be sure a renovation has been done before renting this unit. I would recommend this unit if it were renovated.
Wendy F. from Dayton, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2016 We had a wonderful time in unit 119. The view was fantastic and the location was great. The Unit was clean and had everything we needed for a fun trip.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo for your review, we hope to see you again.
Marianne M. from Alexandria, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2016 At the end of February my husband,daughter,son-in-law and I stayed four nights in this beautiful condo. It was perfect for our needs. We loved being so close to the ocean,walking down to the beach to snorkel, exploring the pools and of course sitting right on the lawn in front of our lanai to watch the beautiful sunsets. There is some foot traffic along the side of the condo as this is a corner unit, but this did not bother us at all. When needed we could close the lower shades which provided complete privacy while still allowing us to view the ocean and sunset. We felt so fortunate to have this condo so close to the ocean and on the ground floor. To be able to step right out the screen door and have an unobstructed view of the water was wonderful. The condo itself has a great layout and is very clean and well appointed. The kitchen has everything you will need to prepare your meals if you want. We ate there everyday and prepared some wonderful fish dinners. We saw no need to eat out as we could buy fresh seafood nearby and also fresh produce from farmers markets. There are also pantry supples available for your use in the cabinets. There is a nice restaurant next door, but we never felt the need to go out as we loved staying in our own beautiful spot. We hope to visit again. Great memories of this lovely place!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at Kuhio Shores 119. We hope you will consider us when booking your future Kauai trip.
Daniel H. from Los Gatos, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2015 What a great place to stay. We were there for 5 nights between Christmas and New Years. The condo was very well appointed with all the amenities necessary. It was clean and well maintained. We will return!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Daniel thank you for writing your wonderful review for Kuhio Shores 119. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again in the future.
A guest from Renton, Washington recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in November, 2015 Wonderful ocean views. Very nice high quality condo. Disappointing that the washer and dryer were not working. Quite a lot of foot traffic behind the unit and people from the condos across the road using the yard behind the condo like it was a public park. At sunset put 15-20 people in front of you in the view picture with the wine glass and surfer. The lack of privacy made it seem a bit over priced.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Thank you for your review. The sunset at Lawai beach is a beautiful wonder that draws people from all over. We will pass your concerns on to the building association about the foot traffic. Mahalo.
A guest from Wauwatosa, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2015 This condo is wonderful. The snorkeling on the beach right next door was stupendous, as were the sunsets and sunrises. The only negative was that the lanai had a lot of spiderwebs which we cleaned off before we were able to relax and enjoy the view.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Kuhio Shores 119, and that you didn't let the spiders stop you from taking in the beautiful view of Lawai beach. Mahalo for your review.
Allan T. from WARNERS BAY, New South Wales recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015 What a wonderful experience.Apartment had everything including beach gear. The view was magnificent only metres from the foreshore and 25 metres from a great restaurant/cocktail bar.Would have no hesitation in recommending Poipu365 to anyone thinking of holidaying on Kauai.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Allan, thank you for the wonderful view. We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Mahalo
A guest from Houma, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2015 The views from 119 are breathtaking. Would've been nice to know in advance that there is no air conditioner in the unit. However, the breeze helped cool down the afternoon temperatures. The washing machine was broken and could not be fixed while staying there. Management knew about the wash machine, but did not inform us prior to arrival. When I called about it we were told to just use the laundry mat. A bit inconvenient but overall our stay was pleasant. This unit is much better than the fourth floor unit 318 that we stayed in part of our honeymoon. 318 is just too hot to stay in for long.
A guest from Danville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in July, 2015 This unit is beautifully appointed and the location could not be more ideal. Turtles right in front of the unit and fabulous snorkeling just steps away. The owner was very responsive to some issues we encountered which were beyond his control and we are very satisfied renters.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Carol, we so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We are also glad to see that your issues were taken care of promptly. We hope you will consider Kuhio Shores 119 for your next Kauai stay. Mahalo
A guest from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2015 The property description was accurate and the location couldn't have been any better! Great costumer service from property management. The condo had all the amenities that a family would need. Our only concern was the lack of cleanliness. It defiantly needs a spring cleaning and or at the least some cleaning supplies on hand.
Kellen S. from Carmel, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 My newly wed wife and I stayed here on the second half of our honeymoon. We knew the property was on the beach but it's safe to say we underestimated how close and beautiful the view was going to be. We loved waking up makin breakfast and watching the surfers in the morning. We were also pleasantly surprised by a bottle of champagne with two chilled glasses waiting in the fridge for us. Arriving home from our stay in poipu was pretty depressing, I'll admit. Get us back there!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Kellen again, congratulations on your wedding, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will keep us in mind the next time you visit the lovely Kauai.
Joseph A. B. from Yorba Linda, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 GREAT PLACE. THE ONE THING THAT THE UNIT NEEDS IS A NEW SLIDER AND SCREEN....HARD TO OPEN AND CLOSE SLIDER SCREEN AND UNABLE TO LOCK SLIDER. AND MAYBE SOME PILLOWS FOR THE LIVING ROOM COUCHES. JUST A SUGGESTION. THANKS AGAIN TO THE NICE LADIES AT POIPU 365 THEY WERE VERY SWEET ON THE PHONE. ONE MORE THING....THE PROCESSING FEE OF $200 KIND OF HIGH =(
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo Joseph for your concerns, we have notified the owner of the slider/screen situation, and are in the process of fixing it. We will also pass along your suggestion of adding pillows to the living room couches. The processing fee that you mentioned includes a prep fee for your arrival, an out-clean fee after your departure, and a processing fee. We hope that this breakdown has help to clarify any misunderstanding. And again mahalo for taking the time to write us a review.
Renato Q. from El Cajon, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 What a lovely condo - roomy, clean, and beautifully decorated and maintained. With the ocean right in front of you, a semi-private lagoon for snorkeling 100 yards to the right of you, a 5-star restaurant a few yards from your front door, what could be better? This is our second stay at Kuhio Shores #119 and we had another wonderful vacation. Kauai has everything except the wall to wall hotels and overcrowded beaches. There is so much to do, you have to come back to do more. Our family of 4 adults couldn't have been more pleased. Mahalo and aloha and we will definitely be back soon.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Mahalo Renato for taking the time to write us an amazing review. We are so glad that you had another wonderful experience here on the beautiful Kauai. We look forward to booking your next adventure. Mahalo again for choosing Kuhio Shores 119 as your home away from home.
A guest from Salem, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in May, 2015 Nice location - wonderful to watch surfers and the turtles. However, it appears that everyone enjoys standing right at the water's edge in front of you. So, in the afternoons and evenings you see more backsides than the ocean from the lanai. The appliances could be upgraded. The location right next to the restaurant can get noisy when they have a wedding - they had 4 during our 10-day stay. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but will rent farther away from the restaurant next time.
Melinda E. from Lake Stevens, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in April, 2015 We have stayed at Kuhio Shores a number of times before, but not in this particular unit. We love this property because of the proximity to one of the best snorkeling beaches on the island, the surf (and lots of turtles) just 30 feet from our lanai, as well as one of the best restaurants (the Beach House), both right next door (you don't even need flip flops to walk over there). This unit was better appointed than any of the others in which we have stayed, and has one of the best locations on the property (ground floor, end unit, closest to the beach). We requested an early check-in, as we were moving from another unit in the same building, and this was readily accommodated. It was very nice to have two king size beds and a washing machine/dryer in the unit, which none of the other units had. There was also snorkeling gear, a boogie board and four beach chairs in the unit. It would have been nice if this unit had lounges on the lanai (that is the only thing we missed about the other condo), but the chairs provided were OK too. This condo is a bit more expensive than some of the others, but we will definitely stay here again. Sunny Poipu is the place to be! (our friends stayed in Princeville and got a lot more rain during their stay at this same time). We love Kauai (have been there 9 times), and look forward to our next trip, during which we will definitely try to stay in this unit at Kuhio Shores again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Melinda we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Kuhio Shores 119, we look forward to your next Poipu visit. Mahalo
Julie N. from Juneau, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2015 We loved our stay at Kuhio Shores 119; the location is amazing - views of surfers and sunsets, the sound of waves crashing, snorkeling in the morning before breakfast, tons of turtles... the unit itself was very nicely furnished and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, and there is a gas grill in the complex that we used to sample fresh Hawaiian fish that we bought from a nearby market. The rental process was easy, communication was prompt, and we were personally welcomed when we arrived. Highly recommended!
A guest from Scottsdale, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2015 This unit with it's two corner windows gave us an almost panoramic view of the ocean. The unit is well "stocked in the kitchen and in the bathrooms there are hit dryers and even a curling iron. Furnishings were so a appropriate for Kauai. No need to worry about things for the beach. There are chairs, boogie board, large and small ice chests etc. Wonderful view of each sunset.Being on the ground floor mad it so accessible to the parking lot.We made a GREAT choice in sleeking 119!
Ronald T H. from Richmond, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2015 Enjoyed our 6 night stay in the ground condo with a great view and easy access. We saw many whales and sea turtles.
Jane B. from Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in August, 2014 A wonderful holiday destination. #119 was perfect, clean, well appointed and very comfortable. Both bedrooms are large and beds so big and comfy. Bathrooms excellent. Kitchen has all the things you need. The ice maker in the fridge was well used. Comfy seating area and wow, that view from all sides of the Poipu coast and Pacific Ocean is breathtaking. Waking up and being able to enjoy your morning coffee watching sea turtles off the shore is like nothing else. Would highly recommend this unit and would stay there again any day. Fantastic service and such a wonderful holiday.
Ann F. from Encinitas, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in July, 2014 Great place, we rented three condos here during the week and had four guys staying here which was great because it was perfect surf access to the best breaks on Poipu. Only issue was noise due to multiple weddings at The Beach House next door, every day not just on Saturday, since this unit is on the end of the complex next to Beach House, there is really no sound break....Overall, great setting and a wonderful week!
Cynthia W. from Lewiston, ID recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 Wow - my husband and I have been traveling to Hawaii since 1986. Kauai haws been our long term favorite island and Poipu our favorite location on the island. Now we have found our favorite location at Poipu - it's Kuhio Shores #119. Can't decide what we liked the best. The location, the view, the surfers in the "front yard", the notable "Beach House" Restaurant next door, or the two king beds which makes it so easy to bring along another couple. The unit faces south and being on that side of the building we were totally protected from the winds and showers that were present during our springtime visit, April 20-27, 2014. The surf was high and the surfers were mesmerizing - such fun to watch! In all our visits to Hawaii we have never had the privilege of sitting on our lanai and watching surfers. This was such a treat. Can't recommend Kuhio Shores #119 enough! Just hope we can get our next reservation when we want to return!!! Thanks Poipu365 you were great and made it so easy!!! See you next time!
A guest from Adel, Iowa recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in March, 2014 My husband and I recently returned from a ten day vacation visit to Kauai where we stayed at Kuhio Shores #119. Over the years we have stayed in several condos and houses in a variety of countries and states. We would rate our stay at Kuhio Shores very high among those experiences. Condo #119 is ground floor with a great view of the ocean. We were treated to daily displays by whales and dolphins, views of sea turtles from the sea wall and each day ended with great sunsets. Excellent snorkeling was just a few yards aways. We do not surf but those that do would find this to be an excellent spot to do so. The condo management certainly gets five stars for paying attention to details...with the condo being very clean and well equiped and having all needed kitchen items and ample paper products, detergents, and soaps for our entire stay. The condo is an easy 30 minute drive from the airport and located centrally for visits to the the north and west coasts and up into the Kokee State Park area. Also, well postioned regarding the local shops and places to eat. A very clean and secure evirnoment with easy parking. If we return to Kauai, we would certainly go to Kuhio Shores again.
Zabin S. from Victoria, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2014 Top marks for professional service during booking and then again with the follow up after our stay. Very accessible condo, nicely furnished, comfy beds, beautiful view. We felt secure the whole time. We were a bit put off by 3 things: 1) There was an insane amount of dust on the silk plants in the second bedroom and bathroom. When you observe that type of cleaning oversight, you can't help but wonder what else might have been overlooked. We put the plants in a closet to keep them far away. 2) Only 1/2 a roll of toilet paper in the master bathroom and no more provided. There was an extra roll in the other bathroom. We had to buy additional toilet paper which really "bummed" us out given that is generally a supplied item. 3) We like to cook at home. However, I would like to see that the owners do a better assessment of the supplies they provide. For example, supplying Saran wrap, food storage containers (Tupperware), and maybe a few more items in addition to salt, pepper and sugar. We would recommend this spot as it has a lot to offer to others but would caution them on the above items. This review was also posted on VRBO and owner's response only addressed item 3 (just barely) - so I'm not certain if they really are interested in guest reviews which are not 100% glowing. Oh well.
A guest from BROOKLINE, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 This vacation rental was wonderful! We were 15 feet from the water, with terrific snorkeling. Giant green sea turtles were crowding around the rocks. We saw flying fish from the patio, jumping 6-7 feet in the air. We watched humpback whales spouting and diving. Parking; next to very good restaurant; next to snorkel rental; fantastic views of sunrise and sunset. Rental company very accommodating -- allowed us to checkout a few hours later because our plane was leaving later. Highly recommend.
A guest from Cumming, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2013 Everything is as advertised. Gorgeous views, great location!
Property Manager Response: Response from Poipu 365 Aloha Robyn, Kuhio Shores 119 is a stunning oceanfront vacation property with the gorgeous views you mentioned. We look forward to reserving it again for you on your next Poipu Vacation!
