ocean, and drift off to sleep each night with the sound of the
waves genially pounding at your doorstep. When only the Best

Subj: Your condo delivered!! I could tell by your photos and all the research I did about other units that your #316 was going to be amazing.
When we opened the door it was so nice to feel all my efforts to find the ultimate condo was worth it. Attention to major detail was seen everywhere. We especially loved every light in the condo is on a dimmer switch. So, nice to have soft light. We have dimmers in all our home as well so we felt right at home.
You did a great job remodeling this unit into a high end home! Oh, and thank you for the surprise bottle of champagne in the frig with two glasses next to it. What a nice, classy touch. Little things like that go far!!!
We want to say "Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo" for introducing us to your absolutely EXQUISITE! condo at Kuhio Shores (Unit 316). We had seen the pictures on the website, so we had an inkling of how great it was, but when we opened the door our first night in Kauai, all we could say was "Oh my God, oh my God!" Everything - from the light fixtures, to the furniture, from the wainscoating and mouldings to the kitchen appliances and bed linens, was of such high quality and so elegant it took our breath away! We enjoyed your beautiful condo for ten days, and we appreciated it so much that we treated it like our own home (I found myself dusting the baseboards!).
We have referred so many people to you already! I think you've been e-mailing with our friend Jeff Eshelman (ToyForks) and have given your website to several of my husband's customers. By the way, Gene will be sending you a self-addressed-stamped envelope; will you please send us a bunch of your business cards? We ourselves will almost certainly be re-booking with you next year. Your remodel has made loyal fans of us!
We may also be in touch regarding your Southern California property, as I (Valerie) am planning a girl's getaway this spring or summer.
Mahalo again - Kauai holds so many special memories for us, and your place in Kuhio Shores has added so many more very memorable ones. We hope to meet you sometime.
Your new friends in Minnesota-
Gene and Valerie Tuftin
Rick and Kathy,
I don't know where to begin other than to say that I'm putting a "FOR SALE" sign in our yard and moving to Hawaii! Your condo was so comfortable, yet so designer and very accommodating. We spent many hours on the balcony, what a view! Clif is a big surfer himself so it was a toss-up between who to watch - surfer, turtles, surfers, turtles. We actually snorkeled beside them, so much fun!
Mahalo for sharing your piece of paradise with us , we shall return!
Clif and Lynn Dodd
Hi Rick & Kathy,
We had an absolutely wonderful time on our vacation. Our first trip to Kauai will be our most memorable vacation to date. Your condo is beautifully decorated, and the view is more than incredible! We loved waking up to the sound of the waves and watching the sunrise. Most evenings (when we were there) we would go sit on the rocks on the beach below and watch the sunset. The Beach House was perfect! It was the perfect setting for our 20th anniversary!
We are packing up to be out by 11:00 tomorrow. Please let me say again how wonderful this unit has been. Before we came, my wife had some misgivings about paying extra to be right "on the water." But after 11 days here, she wants to reserve the unit for same time next year! Stand by till we figure out the dates that will work for us. While growing up, my wife spent two weeks every summer at her family's beach house on Mission Bay there in San Diego. The sound of the surf here at your unit was music to her ears now that we live in Idaho.
This is an unbelievable condo right on the water in Poipu. The location is convenient for both the North and South shores of the island. The condo itself is gorgeous with top of the line bedding, beautiful well-stocked kitchen with stainless steel appliances (there was even an ice cream scoop and pizza cutter!), and an incredible view. Everything was top-notch and worth the premium price when compared to similar rooms a the Hyatt and Princeville Hotels. Both Rick and Kathy were extremely accommodating, friendly, and professional throughout the process. To put things in perspective, despite being on such a beautiful island, we actually looked forward to going home in the evenings to enjoy the condo. My wife and I normally stay in 5-star accommodations when we travel, and this was easily one of the best places we have stayed in over the years.
Rick and Kathy - Thanks again for letting us rent your Kuhio Shores condo. We had such a wonderful time, and it was very hard to leave! Sitting on the balcony watching the turtles swim, the surfers surf and the waves crash was just perfect. And we so appreciated all the hard work you put into designing and renovating the condo. The sliding doors everywhere allowed the breezes to cool everything down within 2 seconds after we got back from sightseeing, and my wife especially loved the fact that we could get filtered water (and crushed ice!) directly from the fridge so that we didn't have to buy a ton of bottled water. Just perfect! We had 2 friends come over for dinner one night, and they said the condo was nicer than their honeymoon suite at the Princeville!
