My wife and I recently spent 2 weeks in condo #212 at Kuhio Shores to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. This was our first stay at Kuhio Shores and had only read about it online. After spending 2 weeks there, and visiting other island locations, I don't think we'd like to stay anywhere but the south shore at Kuhio Shores #212!
Even though we've only communicated via email, the owners of this unit were extremely informative and made the reservation/arrival/departure process extremely easy. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the condo accommodations and blown away by the location and ocean view! The bottle of champagne/note left for us by the owners was also a nice touch! We watched every sunrise from our condo balcony, and took our lawn chairs/cooler (provided in the condo) next door to the Beach Restaurant to watch the sunset and surfers each evening. We had dinner at the Beach Restaurant one evening and experienced a great sunset from our table.
During the first 2-3 days of our stay, Kauai was experiencing some unusually hot/humid days which, we were told by many, is rare. Having air conditioning during that time may have been nice, but honestly, the bedroom remained the coolest room in the condo, thanks to the trade winds, so sleeping was always comfortable.
Kuhio Shores is a short drive away from the airport in Lihue and close to many fine golf courses which we experienced. It appeared that the ocean waters were much calmer on the south shore than on the north shore, making conditions better for those that like to snorkel or swim at the beaches.
My wife and I were barely into the 2nd week of our stay when we started to discuss when we could return to Kauai. If we're lucky enough to go back, we'll be making plans to reserve unit #212 at Kuhio Shores. I don't know how our experience could have been any better!
