I just wanted to thank you for all of your help with the condo and our stay. We absolutely loved the condo and Kauai!! Kauai is such an incredibly beautiful place, and we really hope we can return someday! Your list of "things to do" was great, as were your directions. Thank you, again (or mahalo!)! M, Bridgeport, CT

Just got in an hour ago. Your place is beautiful - simple but elegant! And of course the view is amazing. We'll probably stay close to home most of the time! Regards, S, San Mateo, CA
... and later:
Just got back home last night. It's 25 degrees colder! We really enjoyed your condo. It's definitely the highlight of my trip (had to drag me off of the couch every day since I enjoy very much just reading or just relaxing in front of the awesome water view. I will definitely recommend my friends to stay at your place if they want to go to Kauai.
And thanks again for being so helpful with all your recommendations.

We arrived safely and found the condo in immaculate condition. Thanks for great instructions and information!
Now to enjoy ourselves in this paradise... Thanks for a great place to stay! J, Cupertino, CA

Our stay in 406 was great. We watched 4 turtles every day from our balcony. We are so happy with our whole Kauai trip that we are talking about returning. The house keeper should give us good a good report. What a great trip! Thanks again for letting us use the condo.

We are flying back home tomorrow. I'll be sure to leave the keys in the lock box and follow your other check out instructions. Your directions and recommendations have been very thorough and really set my mind at ease.
We've really enjoyed our stay! Your condo is absolutely beautiful! The views are great and we really enjoyed sleeping to the sound of the ocean every night. We love the blinds and hope you can recall where you bought those and what kind they are? We'd really like to get them for our house if we can track them down.
You have wonderful taste in decorations, I may add. The condo felt very modern, clean and upscale which made our experience here that much better. We truly felt we were being spoiled by such a great location and level of
comfort. The bed was very comfortable, and even the bathroom is great down to the curtain rod and counter tops! We are in the process of remodeling our home so all these details really stood out to us!
We especially enjoyed the architecture and design books you have in the condo. They gave us some good ideas for the future as we continue to change things at our own home. :)
We hope you don't mind, but we're leaving a pair of boogie boards in the closet, to go along with the beach chairs and other beach toys already here. We have really enjoyed our stay here on Kauai. If you need any referral comments from us for future tenants, please feel free to use parts of this email or ask for more, and I'll be happy to oblige. I'll also be making comments on google and trip advisor later. :)
Thanks again, Denise, with Aloha. A & R, Sacramento, CA

We've been home here for about 24 hours, but have been too tired or busy or preoccupied to check in until now.We left your condo with deep regret on Wednesday and headed for Lihue wanting every moment to turn back. We felt that at every decision point we had made the right choices: to come to Kauai, to stay in Poipu/Koloa, and to rent your apartment. Having never been to Kauai before (I've been twice to Maui) we had no clear idea of what each part of the island had to offer or what each community might be like, but somehow we lucked into the Poipu/Koloa area where the weather is the best on the island, the pace is most laid back, and the little shopping town of Koloa was charming and of human scale. A drive one day into noisy and honky tonk Kapa'a only confirmed our conviction that we have been lucky. And Kuhio Shores was just the sort of building we had imagined it would be, and your apartment was just right.
We had breakfast every morning on the balcony looking down at the bay for turtles, and at times we saw as many as three at once. I have a few pictures to send you from another computer, and will do that later tonight.

... your condo is beautiful, the view from the balcony felt as if we were on our own private cruise ship. It truly was hard to leave in the morning and explore the island. I loved the arrangement of the kitchen, you were always enjoying the view. The bedroom was breezy and the bed was extremely comfortable. I truly appreciated the details: the flooring in the bathroom and the lighting fixtures and kitchen hardware, as well as the furniture, flooring, and even the selection of dishes and glassware made for an outstanding 4 star experience in design with a view of the ocean and sea turtles to remember for a lifetime.

We've had an absolutely fabulous time here at your "Island Oasis."
It was everything we imagined and more. Mahalo! WD&JM

... we have finally arrived home. We are pretty sad about it :( We would
much rather be lying near a beach watching the surfers, turtles, or
anything else that goes by.
We had such a wonderful time in Kauai and we loved your condo. The
pictures were just a small preview as to how wonderful your place is.
When we walked thru the door we just stood there in awe. It is truly
lovely, and in such a beautiful setting. Your furnishings and decor are
just fabulous. It was all so very comfortable, and we enjoyed every
minute there. We also loved the location. After exploring many other
areas around the island, we agreed that Poipu was our favorite.
We found ourselves exploring all over the island. We were able to take
a helicopter ride, a boat ride along the Napali Coast and see a luau.
We saw many beautiful beaches, but even though we were there 10 days, we
still feel there were lots of things missed (which we plan on coming
back to see hopefully in the near future.)
Kauai is truly a paradise, and even though we are sad that we are no
longer there lounging on the beach and living on island time, we have
brought back with us a ton of pictures and a life time of memories. I
can see now why you two love this place. It's just beautiful.
Thank you for sharing your place with us and, we hope to return soon.
Take care, K&M

Just received the deposit refund in the mail...thanks. Also, we just
wanted to thank you. We had a great trip and the room was great. The
view was fantastic and the condo was very modern and clean. Overall,
we had a great trip and would recommend your condo to anyone going to
Kauai... You have a beautiful condo in paradise. We hope we can return
someday soon! K&S

... I just wanted to let you know everything is perfect. We are
thrilled with the condo, and found the necessary items (beach chairs,
towels, things in the kitchen) to make our stay like home away from
home. The wifi set-up was a snap. Mahalo, KT

Just a quick note to say that we got here safe and sound and LOVE your
place! The weather is wonderful and the scenery and atmosphere are just
what we needed to relax and recharge. Everthing is in working order
within your unit and the decor is very inviting... we especially like
your frosted sliding doors to the bedroom. Hope all is well with you two... warm regards and a big Mahalo! J&JG

Awesome time! We had a fabulous time in the condo. It's like a little
secret, one that's becoming more exposed to friends. We might be making
this a regular thing for us; so relaxing and perfectly located.
Everything from the nearby restaurants to easygoing Koloa, it was
awesome. I found the typical vacationer of Kauai to be very agreeable.
Thanks again for making the accommodations so thoughtful in every way,
the design and ease of use was a welcome bonus. Best regards, K&K

We enjoyed our stay in your condo. Hope to do it again sometime in the
future. The snorkeling outside the lanai was great (attached is a pic
I took underwater). DP
-- January 2009
We want you to know that we loved Kauai and really enjoyed staying in
your condo. It was lovely to lie in bed and listen to the ocean, sit
on the lanai and see turtles swimming, and we loved the nearby snorkeling.
We hope to return again and as winter continues on here in Northern
Canada, we look longingly at our pictures and check the surf reports
often. Thanks again, T&DH

We just returned from Hawaii and I wanted to thank you - everything to do
with the condo went perfectly, and we couldn't be happier. We had a
fantastic time in Kauai and loved the whole trip. Thanks again, N&T
