F202 is one of the best in the house! This second floor two bedroom suite has an exotic tropical garden view looking interior over the lush gardens, a fantastic night view of the torch lit pool, and a perfect trade wind breeze.
There is a king bed in one master suite and two extra-long full beds in the other suite. The furniture was designed and selected with assistance from a local designer and furniture store with over seven decades on Kauai and a world-class reputation for both style and quality. Even the artwork will impress you, displaying some of the many sights around the island that Kauai is famous for. The result is a unit with a crisp and classy Hawaiian feel that is hard to find anywhere else. F202 also has its own FAST & dedicated WIFI connection!!
The interior of this 2 bedroom, 3 bath, 1300+ square foot unit starts with a top of the line gourmet kitchen that includes a Wolf glass cook top, oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator, GE profile microwave, Fisher Paykel double drawer dishwasher, granite counter tops and African Mahogany cabinets. The three full baths have Peruvian Travertine stone surrounds, two showers and two soaking tubs that are perfect to relax any over hiked traveler.

Waipouli claims Kauai?s only heated fresh water lazy river with three waterfalls, two water slides, one cave and a child friendly sand bottom beach area. Relaxing in one of the three sand bottom whirlpool spas is a must. Barbecue facilities can also be found near the pool for guests to enjoy. On the beach just outside the pool area you will find ?Oasis?, a beach front restaurant known for fine dining, great drinks, and a moon rise dinner like no other! Need some pampering? Spa by the Sea is a relaxing 4000 square foot full service spa and salon on site to meet all of your spa needs including unique Hawaiian spa services. Waipouli also offers a fitness room, an activities desk, and a business center. Beach towels are also available and provided by the pool staff.
The resort is ideally located. It is almost the same distance/time to either side of the island. So whether heading to one of Kauai?s many beautiful beaches or golfing at one of its world famous courses, all of Kauai?s activities are a short drive. Directly across the street, in the Waipouli Shopping Center, is a Safeway, Long?s Drugstore, Starbucks, and many more shops and restaurants. It is also just a short walk to historical old Kapaa town. Near by you will also discover a dramatic beach walking/cycling path that starts in Kapaa and continues North to Kealia beach and then further on to other beautiful beaches. Once a sugar train easement, this incredible paved path will be nearly 18 miles when completed and currently offers 4 miles of ocean front.

Reviewed by: Amy V. recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2016 The condo had all of the essentials that we needed including a fully stocked kitchen with all the cookware we needed for the week. It was also nice to have a washer and dryer available to wash when we needed it. The room was very nice and clean. The grocery store is right across the street to get all you need for the week. We saved a lot just by cooking a lot of our meals in our room. They also have a costco if you have a larger group. We had an incredible stay. The room was all we had hoped for and more. The pool was awesome for our whole family. We all enjoyed the water slides and swimming together. We got married at the resort on the beach and had an amazing experience. The beach in front of the resort is very nice but not ideal for swimming. There are plenty of beaches nearby to go swim though. If you plan to do activities like tubing or zip lining I would suggest contacting the vendor in advance because some activities were booked up even before we arrived. We utilized the free concierge service for our wedding as well as our activities or even just for a restaurant recommendation and they were wonderful. It eased the stress of the entire stay knowing someone was available for help and advice. We would highly recommend the resort as a great family or couple's spot. We are looking forward to our next visit.
Amy A. from Napa, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2016 Great location and the condo is exactly how it looks in the pics. Plenty of extra's too - beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. We would definitely recommend staying here and we will for sure be back. Loved it!
Emily H. from Monroe, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2016 Facilities clean and very enjoyable. Kitchen stocked well. Very pleased with everything. If there was anything to improve it would have been nice to have more beach toys for us to use. We left some behind for the next family. Also, the vacuum was held together by duck tape and was difficult to use. A new vacuum would be helpful to keep clean. Overall a great place to stay.
A guest from South Greenfield, Missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in June, 2016 This was our second stay at the Waipouli. It is a great place. Everything is of good quality and we love the location. It's quiet and clean. Beach chairs and beach umbrella in F202 was a nice surprise as we didn't have that in the first one. We bought groceries right across the street, but lots of places to eat also (we love Brick Oven Pizza) Would stay here again!!

Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in March, 2016 Stayed in this unit for 12 days in March, 2016 and had a pleasant experience. Furniture was upgraded and comfortable. Kitchen well stocked with equipment. Plenty of closet and drawer space to unpack our clothes. We liked the beach chairs and used them often to sit under the trees on the beach. Having stayed in another unit last year, we chose this one partly because the lanai only gets sun in the early morning which means it doesn't get too hot to sit outside in the afternoon. Last year the lanai in the unit we rented was in the sun all afternoon and we weren't able to use it until evening. We will definitely consider renting this condo in the future.
Dawn L. from Siren, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2016 We love the location, the amenities, and the layout of the condos at the Waipouli.

The property in general is very clean and secure and we have had great experiences with all of the staff that maintain the property and grounds.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in January, 2016 Liked the location, amenities, and the size of the rental unit. One of shower heads was constantly leaking and one of the dishwashers would not drain properly. Having such a long code to access the pool area is not convenient. The restaurant should have more days with a food happy hour and more entertainment days than once a week.
Property Manager Response: Response from Kauai Exclusive Management LLC Aloha,
Thank you for the valuable feedback and for being our guest in F202. We have fixed the shower head as well as the dishwasher. I also shared your feedback with the restaurant in hopes they might offer more like you suggested. Again thank you for being our guest and thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback.
A guest from St Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2016 Beautiful space, lovely pool and great location (central to everything on the island).

The condo is modern and clean and the resort is great with a lovely pool and easy access to the beach. The beach is rocky so not great for swimming, but there are other beaches within a short drive. I'd like to stay there again but need a few things! There are no towel racks in the master bathroom. There should be one by each sink. Also, there is no where to hang your towel by the master shower. There should be a hook. Also, the lighting in the main room should be improved. There was a nice game table but not much light to see at night! I actually bought a better light bulb for the lamp, but another lamp or overhead light would be a big improvement. I know these are picky little things, but that is how much I want to stay there again that I care about these little things!

Craig J. from Bend, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in January, 2015 We had a wonderful stay at the Waipouli Beach Resort. Unit F202 is everything we hoped it would be. We have 3 children ages 10,8,6 that loved the resort as a home base. F202 ,in particular, is beautiful and well located on the property. We all really enjoyed the pool, sunrises on the beach and digging little crabs out of the sand. The Oasis was a wonderful place to eat and the bar staff was fantastic during the day while we were at the pool. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this unit to anyone that would like a roomy, beautiful, centrally located (on the island) place to stay. We loved it! Safeway and Starbucks directly across the street were a big plus!!

Hector C. from Littleton, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 It was very nice except for the in-house Oasis restaurant. We ate there for dinner on the 1st night in town and the hamburger made one person very sick from food poisoning. The steaks were excellent but we decided never again. However, we did gave it another try for lunch 4 days later and the pastrami sandwich made a different person very, very sick. Also, for that lunch we arrived 10 mins before opening time and they would not let us in nor serve us drinks while we waited. The Oasis is no oasis and definitely needs new management. The rest of the complex was magnificent and the location was perfect. This was a next-day short notice reservation and the management team that set us up was 1st class all the way. When I go back I will use the same office for future reservations.

Reviewed by: Keith M. recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in January, 2014 The location was perfect for venturing out north or south island; we were within a reasonable distance to whatever we decided to do each day. After spending some time on the island I would not even consider limiting myself to North or South. For Kauai, Kapaa is a great location to home base from. Access to stores was right across the street. The pool area was awesome and my 4 yr. old daughter loved it. The long hours made it possible for us to enjoy the pool early in the morning and again in the evening after our day trips off property. The pool is cold, so most of our time was spent in the hot tubs during those parts of the day. The Grounds were meticulously kept and clean around the resort with plenty of chairs and places to lounge. There are not enough BBQ Grills, so plan your cooking accordingly. The room was very nice. It was very comfortable and worked great for my family of 5. The Tween boys loved having their own beds and bathroom! We noted that while the rooms look and feel clean, a closer look revealed the dishes were not quite clean when put away from the previous guests and had to be rewashed before use. Our bed spreads and the decorative pillow covers had not been washed in a while. My wife washed the ones she could and the others that said dry clean only were piled in a corner during our stay. A few minutes wearing white socks on the carpet showed that the carpets were in need of some deeper cleaning. My wife mentioned that she was on vacation and resented having to wash bedding. I guess for the price of the room, we expected a little more. All that said, we did love the room and will stay there again. Since they turn the room so fast between check out and check in, it leaves little time for anything other than a surface cleaning. I read all the reviews before booking this room and they all reported it clean. Overall we cannot say enough good about our stay here. We loved Kauai and the Waipouli Beach Resort F202! We will return?.Thank you.

Stayed for 13 days in June, 2013 About 1week prior leaving the pool area between towel kiosk and hot tub I stepped into something on the paved path - I took my shoe off and to my horror I saw and smelled that I had stepped into animal droopings (dog, cat, or other). I informed the towel person who helped me clean my shoe.I urged him to have someone remoce and clean the area which he said he would do. About 2 hours later (when leaving the pool area) the "deposit" was still there - another pool person was there and I informed him and he said he would have it taken care of. Several days later when we left the droppings had still not been removed. I was lucky that I was wearing shoes

This worked out perfectly as we have teenagers and were able to watch them out at the pool. The kitchen appliances and furnishings were first rate. The oven looked a little complicated, but I'm sure we would have figured it out if we found we needed to use it. We utilized the BBQ downstairs. This was the only item that was problematic. The BBQ does not get very hot and not all of the burners work on all of the units. Hopefully management will tend to this quickly. The location of the complex was fantastic. It was very easy to go to either the south end of the island or up to the north. We found we did not mind not having a swim-able beach at the resort. We ended up seeing much more of this beautiful island as a result. We had friends who booked through Outrigger directly. They were pleased but found it awkward having their stay interrupted by cleaning staff coming at different hours each day. We did not miss having daily housekeeping at all.

Two grocery stores and several restaurants are within walking distance. Wonderful beaches are just a short drive away. The room was nicely furnished, clean, and well equipped. The pool area is very nice and inviting.
Reviewed by: Tam N. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011 We can't say enough about the resort and Kauai Management. What a place. Clean, modern and friendly. The best part...lots of restaurants across the street. We went nuts over the Indian place. Just stay away from the Wahoo Seafood Grill. It is way overpriced for what you get and the food was not good. All in all, it was a great vacation and we can't wait to return.
Reviewed by: Roy M. recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in March, 2011 BBQ's on site did not work fully. Stove top on one side in my unit did not heat fully but was not reported. Had a problem with the air conditioning and when reported was immediately remedied. Very beautiful property with units well equipped. We wouldn't hesitate to return and rent thru KEM.
A guest from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2011 The furnishings in this condo were first class quality. The kitchen was well stocked with any utensils or cookware you could possibly need. The beds were comfortable - the place was spotless. The location was good for easy access to the parking lot to bring in groceries. One of the bedrooms partially faced a wall which turned out to be a good thing because of the privacy it offered. The livingroom and other bedroom had a very nice view of the pool. I would rent this unit again - only this time for a longer period of time!
Laurie B. from Salem, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2011 Pros: The location was perfect for us, the grounds are gorgeous, quality appliances and plenty of detergent for laundry and dishes, good privacy and secure, friendly staff. Cons: pool towels are not to be taken off the property, our unit curiously had lots of bath towels but only two hand towels and only three washcloths for four people staying six nights, internet was VERY slow. We did not hear much noise from other guests, but some kind of dull machinery noise all night made it necessary to close the windows to be able to sleep.
Reviewed by: Greg T. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2010 We would definately come back to the Waipouli Beach Resort. Great location, plenty of restaurants and services nearby, very nice room(s), and the property manager was very helpful... even allowing us to check out late. Highly recommended for families. Our kids simply loved the pool area.
