Painting of Kuhio Shores

Kuhio Shores Condo #305
When we first walked into what was to become our home in Kauai, the view of the coastline and lush, green Prince Kuhio Park literally took our breathe away!
From the lanai we watched turtles feed on the rocks below, and since it was winter, we saw blow holes out in the distance. The location was amazing, right on our favorite snorkeling spot (rated best snorkeling beach in Kauai by "Sunset" magazine). Across the street is Prince Kuhio Park, a Hawaiian holy site, which will always be protected from development. Even before escrow closed, we began an extensive remodel including laying exquisite bamboo flooring, new tile, granite and maple vanity with new fixtures, and replacing all the furnishings, bedding, linens and kitchenware. Our guests comment about the awesomeness of being right on the water, and they often comment that the condo is so comfortable and so relaxing that they have to "force themselves" to leave in order to explore this majestic island.
With each visit, we continue to add fine details. We
created an elegant Italian Nocchino marble shower with stone
accents, and in the kitchen we installed Brazilian, Verde Peacock
gold granite and new stainless steel appliances. You will find resort
quality throughout. To complete this perfect Jewel, we bought a very
high end pillowtop king size bed with "memory foam," which is the most
comfortable bed we have ever slept on. We recently created a breezeway
between the bedroom and the living room so the ocean air gets pulled through
the bedroom. We now have a gorgeous ocean view in the bedroom, too!
Our commissioned large scale abstract painting on glass is by renoun abstract artist, Fred Gemmell, "I love using the tools of composition, color and detail to create a feeling of a luminous and unfolding mystery."
Through Hawaiian and Asian artwork, comfortable, luxurious furnishings
and the best oceanfront view in Kauai, you can feel the "Aloha" spirit
of Hawaii in our home.

Love This Place!
You will not be disappointed with this condo. It has everything you will need for your vacation getaway and more! There is definite pride of ownership and it is so easy to feel the comfort the minute you walk through the door. The sunrise as opposed to the sunset is wonderful because you can easily sit on the lanai in the afternoon/eve without it being too hot, and all you have to do is walk out front or go next door to the famous Beach House Restaurant for drinks and pu-pus in order to enjoy the sunset! We cannot wait to return!
Dear Molla, We can not thank you enough for sharing your island home with us. We had a wonderful visit to Kaua'i! We would have been happy spending the entire trip sitting on the Lanai watching the waves, whales and the sea turtles. We did venture out to see a good bit of the island and are looking forward to future trips when we can see some more.Your condo is lovely and very comfortable. The pride of ownership is apparent in all the beautiful natural materials you have used and they really enhance the experience there.
Dr. Susan Lucas - We will definately refer your condo to our friends and family (my mother is all ready interested and talking to my dad) and hope to stay with you again when we are able to return. I can't imagine better accomodations any where.
5 Star - Everything I expected
This was my first time renting a condo for my vacation. I did investigate different places and prices. I was very satisfied with Kuhio Shores. The scenery was beautiful, the snorkeling was great. In fact, I took a boat trip in Maui for snorkeling and it wasn't half as good as outside my door in Kaui. I would recommend anyone to stay here. Thanks again, Molla.
An Excellent, Well-Maintained Condo

Molla and Kevin Wallace had create such a lovely place here in Poipu on Kaua'i. My wife and I booked the condo a few months before our stay from November 26 - December 03, 2010. From this moment on, Molla provided us with all relevant information and great tips for our time on this spectacular island of Hawai'i. She is a very friendly person and also helps us with spontaneous questions during our stay via Facebook.The condo is very beautiful and as described; the same applies for the surrounding, breath taking landscape. On both sides of the condo you have the chance to snorkel. A snorkel rental ("Boss Frog") is located one minute away from the condo at the front of the "Beach House Restaurant". In our holiday week we even saw a seal resting on the beach!
The condo (e. g. the kitchen) for itself is fully equipped- we missed nothing! The internet access was working fast and undisturbed also. It's very hard for us to leave this place now.
