“Prince Kuhio Condos”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Over the years we have stayed at many Prince Kuhio condos. Some were little studios, some were one bedrooms.Some of the units that come to mind, 237, 215, 112, 318, 319 and a few others. As far as if someone would like this condo complex depends on their expectations. In general it is a very good value and the location is probably the very best thing. There is a beach across the street and good restaurants are within easy walking distance. Units on the 3rd floor can be a bit difficult to get to as there is no elevator however the view is best from the 3rd floor which looks across Prince Kuhio park to the ocean. The units are individually owned so you will find quite a bit of difference from unit to unit. It's a laid back, middle of the road type of place. The front doors do not come with deadbolts. It's just that kind of place. The grounds are beautifully and well taken care of and it has a pool although it is a bit cold. The bbq area can get quite busy at times.

Room Tip: There are just so many options. VRBO, Kauai Vacation Rentals.

Staying at the Prince Kuhio is like staying with your grandparents ~ you feel right at home and welcomed. Its comfortable and quiet; all is well taken care of and clean, if a bit dated and worn. The 2 coves across the street -- one with a narrow band of sand -- offer some of the better snorkeling on the island. It is rocky when entering the water though, so I'd recommend water shoes and/or fins. Even though there were waves and the visibility mediocre at this time of year (March), I was excited to see a green sea turtle and lots of tropical fish. The beach here is well used, with usually at least one van of snorkelers and nearby condo tenants frequenting this spot. In the evening, watching the sunset is often a fun community event akin to Key West without all the performers.



#232 is a studio facing the inner courtyard with views of the pool, the back side of the neighboring condo and the multi-story parking garage. It cleverly squeezes in everything that one could possibly need with mini kitchen appliances, and lots of vacant cupboards, drawers, and closets. For this unit, the parking garage is most convenient and we never had an issue with parking. While the lanai is quite narrow, it still would have been nice to have had chairs and a table as most of the other units do. It was well-supplied with a small cooler, beach towels, and beach chairs -- just wish the beach chairs were more comfortable. The ceiling fan flow-through ventilation was sufficient for us, although an AC is provided. There is not a W/D in the unit, but the complex has several coin-operated ones available.



I would definitely recommend and return to the Prince Kuhio condos. It is an excellent value and good location on the sunny south side of Kauai ~ even though it is not oceanfront. I was leery of having to cross the street to the beach, but it was not something we minded at all. Next time, I'd opt to stay on the Prince Kuhio Park side, to enjoy the sunrises and park/ocean views. The inner courtyard units are more shady and inevitably hear chatter of people in and about the pool. While a 1 BR might be nice, the studio was definitely spacious enough for the 2 of us. Another option is one of 2 penthouse units (2 BR/1Bath) that have huge decks and spectacular views of the stars. For those with mobility issues, there are no elevators. The Office self-service (for signing in and picking up brochures), although the property managers are readily available (via phone) and dropped by with a nice Hawaii welcome of local cookies and coffee. There are 2 immaculate BBQs and a small pool for communal use. This unit has wifi, cable + TV (not a flat screen), and a hair dryer.



We loved the location of the Prince Kuhio! It is great place from which to explore, yet has many things close by if you don't want to venture far. In particular, we enjoyed being right across the street from the Beach House restaurant, about a mile from Spouting Horn and the National Tropical Botanical Garden, and walking distance to the Shops at Kukui'ula, as well as, the many other south and west side beaches. The Prince Kuhio has a loyal following; I'd recommend booking as early as possible!

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side are brighter, quieter and face Prince Kuhio Park (some with ocean views). Roo...

This condo, number 106 has it all, location, size, breeze, price, amenities! This was our fist trip to Kauai, and we love this unit they also they had thoughtful extras like 2 beach chairs, laundry soap, blender (for my smoothies), teapot, excellent WORKING WiFi, easy access to everything. A carry cooler, fully outfitted kitchen, bathroom, TV room. snorkel, mask and small (women's sized) fins.

Great snorkel beach right across the street, where the snuba tour people bring their vans. Still it's not crowded. A woman wirh her 8 year old daughter told me they saw sea turtles and fish and it was a blast. I like to hike so we are right in the middle of the West & East sides for hiking, my husband likes to snorkel which he is out doing now.

I know I will love the North end of the island too when we get there but I'm glad we got to stay here where in March there is a better chance for "not rain".

We mostly bought our food and ate in the condo, or used the group outdoor grill but also have been to the restaurant across the street. This beach is an awesome spot to watch the sunset.

Mahalo as they say.

I can't say enough about this perfect 1BR condo. The space is divided up well allowing for 3 areas (kitchen, bedroom, living room off lanai) which gives some character to the space. The pictures on VRBO say it all. Well stocked kitchen with anything you would need. Comfy bed was great. The location is super with regard to Poipu beach.(My favorite for Monk Seals and snorkeling) Walk across the street and watch the sunset from the grounds of the Beachhouse restaurant. Lanai overlooks Prince Kuhio Park with view of ocean. The owners, Toby and Bill were a pleasure to do business with. There is no elevator so realize that this is on the 3rd floor. I could live here (seriously) so without a doubt you will love it. My own opinion is that you can get such a better value staying in a privately owned condo or house. Is the five star hotel really worth it? I think not, which allowed us to stay in Hawaii overall for a month. This was my first try at VRBO and the description lived up to my expectations. This is a well appointed condo that feels cozy.

We stayed a week in this unit down in Poipu before heading to Princeville. The location and condition of this unit was second to none! The building itself maybe older but you can tell they have really maintained it well. Our unit, 317, had everything we needed and was well stocked. You can tell the owners take pride in their piece of paradise. I liked the fact the condo has an'office stocked with maps and other info.
Your only contact is with the agent you booked with and any other contact info you had been given in the rental set up.
It has a nice pool, but no hot tub. Ahh, we're in Kauai, who needs a hot tub!
My spouse and I will definitely be back.

Mahalo,

We had a lovely stay in this condo. It was super cozy and comfortable. From the moment we enquired about this accomodation, up until the end of our stay Pat and Diana were always easy to reach and were fantastic about getting back to us really quickly. They answered all our queries and the whole process was very smooth.

We arranged pick up of our keys from the car rental place and there was a package waiting for us. The package included our keys and information about the property. Pat had already given me excellent driving directions to the property, but this was also included in the package - along with parking info etc.

We found the grounds of the condo itself a bit run down - i didn't look around and think wow when I arrived. There was lots of plants etc, but at the same time, lots of weeds. The whole place felt like it needed a bit of a facelift. Kauai is just so beautiful and lush that you would expect the same at your accomodation. However, we did get the condo at a really great price, and honestly, how long do you spend at your condo while you are on such a beautiful island where there is so much to explore?! We never used the pool - in fact never saw anyone in it while we were there. It's also rundown (broken tiles etc).

There is everything you need in #332. I was very thankful for the dishwasher detergent (look under bathroom sink) - please note - you still have to pay to use the machine (credit card accepted). There was also little things that you might have forgotten that come in really handy (sunscreen lotion, aloe etc) - we didn't have to use anything, but this was a nice touch. The kitchen was fully equipped and it was nice to find a little cooler bag from the rental company - to keep. There was also larger cooler bags for you to use while you were there, along with other things that might come in handy. On the balcony we found swimming/ocean items (snorkel etc). We didn't use any of it, but it's great that it's there. The best thing about the room was free wi-fi. There was a small problem with this on our first night, but I got in touch with Pat and the problem was resolved asap. Oh, and the shower was great!

I mentioned the room was cozy and comfortable - which it was. Just a couple of points. The decor wasn't to our taste, but in the big scheme of things that doesn't matter. The room is small (as is the bathroom/shower area). However, everything was comfortable - there was only 2 of us. I think if we had a kid with us then it would have started to feel a bit cramp. The balcony is small - enough to step out on, maybe put a chair and read/have coffee.

The location of this condo is good, but you need a car to get around. We picked this area as it was close to Lawai Beach/snorkelling. We didn't see any turtles, and there wasn't much else in the water so that was quite disappointing. It's quite rocky too.

While in Kauai we also went to a few restaurants and visited tunnels beach, a couple of falls and went for a luau - i'll be writing reviews for them too.

Room Tip: Room #332 is great value. However, get ground level room if you don't want/can't use stairs...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Prince Kuhio #211 in January. The location of this condo is the best on the island, as far as we are concerned. We love being right across the street from Lawai Beach and enjoyed great snorkeling with the turtles. We saw lots of whale activity this year, more than previous visits. This is our third stay at Prince Kuhio and we liked #211 the best of the three. Nice and quiet with the lanai looking onto PK park. We found the tropical gardens and pool a great way to relax after morning hikes and golf games. Everything you could possibly need is in the unit and we had the added bonus of a new bed arriving part way through our stay. Very nice!! Looking forward to our next visit. This is the best value on the island.
