About Molla and Kevin Wallace
When we were younger we lived in a cottage overlooking the ocean in Southern California and sadly had to leave. We never dreamed we could ever live by the beach again. Years later, we went on vacation to Kauai as a reprieve from taking care of our ailing parents. At the time we asked a local man about the best place to snorkel on the island. He told us about a small beach by the Beach House Restaurant. We ended up snorkeling there every day of that vacation. The reef was filled with colorful fish, the turquoise water was calm and access was easy. Being in the water there was such a joyful experience! We never dreamed of the possibility of owning a condo on Kauai, let alone on our favorite snorkeling beach, but it happened! It gives us great joy to share our 'Jewel on the Sea' with our guests. Over the years we have stayed in contact with many of our guests, some who return year after year. We host a Facebook page that is dedicated to all things Kauai, where you can meet local residents, make plans in advance of your trip and get referrals from our past guests. We are so grateful to provide a beautiful tropical oceanfront home for your special experience on Kauai. We enjoy getting to know our guests and will help you with ideas for your trip. We still live in the San Diego area, in a north coastal town called Encinitas. Dreaming of becoming Kauai residents someday. In the meantime, we love working on our Kauai Jewel. We love the arts and have commissioned beautiful pieces that enhance your experience in the space. Every year we continue to make improvements staying with the Hawaiian theme. We take great pride in our work on our 'Jewel on the Sea' and continue to do everything possible to add to your enjoyment. Hope you stay with us! We are sure you are going to love it! FYI: We never ask our guests to wire money and we do not advertise on Craig's list
Molla and Kevin Wallace purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Molla and Kevin Wallace chose Poipu
Kuhio Shores is where, as one guest described it, 'the location is the destination.' It is closer to the water than any other resort or condo on the island and perhaps, in all of the islands, with swimmable beaches for snorkeling, diving and surfing right at the condo. No need to get into a car. You will hear the sounds of the ocean day and night. From our wall of windows and the lanai, you can watch the day turn into night with spectacular sunrises, relax on the lanai while the cool aqua waves roll past the lanai and turtles feed below. Witness a passing shower and rainbows over the water and the tropical greens of Prince Kuhio Park, the sacred birthplace of Prince Kuhio, with its ancient fish pond. In winter we get excited by the sighting of a breaching whale. Walk over to the Beach House Restaurant for a delicious meal or bring a drink down to the beach to watch the magnificent sunset. Head back up to the condo to lay on the chaise lounges under the evening stars or gaze at the full moon reflecting over the water. We never tire of the constant lull and beauty of the ocean. Our Jewel on the Sea, #305 Kuhio Shores, exceeds our dreams. I have to give kudos to our staff who have never failed to make sure that when you walk in, the condo is clean and ready for you to enjoy an experience of a lifetime.
What makes this Apartment unique
As soon as we opened the door of our 'Jewel on the Sea' we knew we were home and we had to make it happen. We didn't see this at the time (the view would have been enough), but right below our condo is where turtles feed. I have been told by guests who had previously lived in the islands that they have seen more turtles below our lanai during their stay than in all the years that they had lived in Hawaii. We marry the luxury of upscale resorts with the comfort of a fine home. During a flight back to the mainland an idea came to us about how to increase the airflow. The positioning of our condo in the building was already ideal but now, after creating a 'breezeway,' the condo interior is like a cool wind tunnel and sometimes we need to turn the fans off at night in the summer. With the first cut into the wall we could feel the air getting pulled throughout the entire condo and unexpectedly, we created an ocean view in the bedroom. Next we installed the best fans on the market according to CNet, the 'Haiku,' American made by the Big Ass Fan Company (yes that is the name!!). These hanging sculptural fans circulate the cool ocean air, allowing us to feel comfortable while listening to the calming ocean lull. Just to make sure you are always comfortable, this last year we installed Air Conditioning so you will always be comfortable. Nothing gives us greater joy than to please our guests. The condo is filled with a love that is palpable from all of our guests who are celebrating their honeymoon, wedding on Kauai, birthday, anniversary, and the joy of taking a vacation on this most beautiful island; a place that we feel is the most beautiful in the world. From what we hear from cognitive science, experiences rather than things make us happy because they create lifetime memories,. We are passionate about creating a beautiful, comfortable home for you so that those experiences made here will stay with you always.
