Unique History Meets Unmatched Relaxation at Kuhio Shores in Poipu
Few know that the picturesque resort community of Poipu is in fact the Hanau o’ Kuhio (the birthplace of Prince Kuhio). Born in 1872 along the Poipu coastline at Kukui’ula, Prince Kuhio was the last ali’i (royal) heir to the Hawaiian throne. Although Prince Kuhio’s ascension never materialized, this well loved Prince later became the Republican Delegate of Hawaii to the U.S. Congress. He tirelessly represented and cared for the well-being of the Hawaiian people.

Honoring the Prince is the beautiful Prince Kuhio Park, which fronts Ho’ai Bay nestled between the luxurious Kukui’ula Cottages and the ocean peninsula of Kuhio Shores. The rare public green space includes the foundation of his royal home and fishpond as well as a heiau (an ancient Hawaiian temple or sacred site). Some years ago, the Kukui’ula development generously donated land to the Prince Kuhio Park, doubling its size, as well as buffering the Kuhio Shores condominiums from future development.
Merely 10 steps from the water’s edge, Kuhio Shores’ placement affords its owners and guests unparalleled views of surfers at PK’s surf break as the sunset dips into the azul background of the Pacific. Located near the corner with superior shoreline views, unit 208 at Kuhio Shores is an open-planned and light-filled 1-bedroom, 1-bath property where sea turtle and whale watching is possible from the relaxing comfort of the couch.
Low tide reveals reef life. The crystal clear calm water is ideal for watching turtles and tropical sea live from your lanai (MLS# 277275).
