A guest from Beaconsfield Upper, Victoria recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2016 This room exceeded our expectations. It was spacious and well equipped for a family of 5. Hotel facilities were excellent and communication throughout the booking process was helpful. Would definitely recommend.
A guest from Sacramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in October, 2016 The unit was clean, nice, and well appointed. On balance, my family and I were very happy. The one major criticism we have of the unit (that can be easily resolved) is a need for more lighting in the living/dining room and each of the bedrooms. Recessed ceiling lights/cans would be ideal. But, at a minimum more lamps and a hanging chandelier over the dining table would help a lot. The complex is very pleasant. The kids enjoyed the slides and the hot tubs. My wife and I would have preferred that the pool have a deep area, but it does not. The beach is not swimmable, but Kealia Beach - 15 minutes up the road - is wonderful. The unit's location right by the pool and beach is terrific. Parking is convenient. The condo/building location is convenient in Kapa'a and right across the street from a Safeway store and shopping center. Overall, we were very happy.
A guest from Fairfield, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2016 We love the waipouli and have been staying there for years. However, this unit needs a little work. The unit had a musty smell, the sofa and chair were dated and dingy, and there was a maddening dinging from one of the appliances that we couldn't figure out despite calls to the manager. Other than that, all was great.
Yvette O. from Lake Forest Park, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2016 We recently spent 8 nights in this unit with our two teenagers. The location is ideal to reach all the island and we managed to stay out of the Kapaa traffic, which can get quite backed up! If we stayed anywhere else on the island we would have been caught in it trying to get through Kapaa... but we were able to shunt off to our place and miss it. The unit is clean and well stocked. Nice pool and grounds with the beach just on the other side of the building. We found the proximity to the parking very easy to unload our bags and bring groceries in. We did not miss having an ocean view. There are plenty of places to walk out and sit on the beach to watch the sunset or rise. We loved having a full kitchen and a Safeway right across the street - saved so much by being able to make our own meals. The master bath is beautiful but has no shower, but rather a lovely tub... there is a single stall shower connected to the bathroom though but the lighting is not very "warm". The second bedroom has a full bath with shower and separate tub. It's a very nice unit and we would definitely stay there again.
Mark S. from Laguna Niguel, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in June, 2016 What a vacation. This resort is located on the beach. With everything you need right there. Room was well equipped and in great shape. I would definitely stay in this unit again!
A guest from Yukon, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2016 We almost didn't choose this rental because we weren't thrilled with the decor. That would have been a mistake! This condo was beautiful, and had all the amenities that we could need for our stay. The bathrooms were spacious and well appointed. We really didn't use the kitchen, but it was nice to have a knife an cutting board on hand for the fresh pineapple. The location was great, no view but easy to get to...and the beach and pool were both just steps away. My wife and I came alone to celebrate our anniversary, but we have already talked about how perfect this would be to bring our three young boys! The beach chairs, boards, and umbrella were very helpful as we traveled to different beautiful Kauai beaches. Also, they were great about helping us get a late checkout since our flight didn't leave until late. Overall, great stay!
A guest from Gig Harbor, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 We enjoyed our stay! Great location for seeing all of the island. Rooms were spacious. Kitchen stocked with essential cooking utensils. Nice pool. Property was clean and well maintained. Would recommend this site to others....already have!
A guest from KENT, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2016 Everything was as described and our stay couldn't have been more comfortable. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was very helpful when it came to packing for the trip; we were able to pack just the basics and not have to worry about having clothes for every day of the week. We enjoyed the location and were just steps away from the beach and pool. The kitchen was clean and appliances were updated, had everything you could possibly need with the one exception of a corkscrew for opening a bottle of wine. Loved the layout of the bedrooms being on opposite sides of the unit. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds which would be great for families with children but my mother didn?t enjoy sleeping in such a small bed! Overall all would highly recommend!
Amanda D. from Fairbanks, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2016 We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this unit on Kauai. It was clean and comfortable, easy to get to and a beautiful resort. Well stocked large kitchen which was ideal for our gluten free family. There were coolers and beach toys in the closet that we used everyday. Resort staff were friendly and we all loved the pool! We would love to stay here again.

A guest from Kent, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2015 My boyfriend and I rented this condo for a romantic trip away and it was perfect. We had a great time and the condo had everything we needed. It was centrally located on the island and close to the pool. We are already talking about booking again.
Melissa C. from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in June, 2015 Great, centrally located and quiet. This place was great for our family. Only wish it was slightly better stocked in the kitchen--who wants to go to Hawaii and buy cooking oil and dishwasher liquid? We really loved the pool and everyone was very hospitable. Perfect location for a family vacation, in close proximity to north and south shores, with plenty to do on the coconut coast too. Loved the running path right there! We will definitely be back!
David K. from Sanford, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 We truly enjoyed staying at this rental. The locations was wonderful for our needs and the space was wonderful. The proximity to the beach and restaurant on site was perfect. The Unit was clean and ready for our arrival. Communication by the rental agency was very good.
Teresa C. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 This was a great beach condo. Our party was extremely satisfied with our stay - it was very clean, spacious, and modern. Location was very convenient near grocery stores, the beach, and restaurants. Would return again!
A guest from Edmonton, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2015 We enjoyed 4 days at this rental property. It was very quiet, clean and well stocked. Even had a nice selection of beach toys for our daughter. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return. My only concern was a lock on one of the sliding doors that did not work. Since there piece of wood in the track, it appears to be have been a known issue. Given all the warnings about keeping things locked up when you are not home I would think this would be something that would have been promptly fixed.
barbara w. from billings, mont recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in December, 2014 We had a great stay at your vacation rental. It was clean and location was good. It was as described on the internet. Remax was helpful. The concierge service at the resort was excellent.I would recommend to others as a great place to stay/
Will C. from Calgary, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in November, 2014 Fantastic place. Second time we've stayed in this unit. (Third time at this complex) Nice and close to the beach for those early morning sunrises and close to the pool for swimming with the kids.Not all the amenities of home, but then again it's vacation time. The Property Managers are very responsive and helpful and appreciated being made aware of minor issues. Even willing to come down from Princeville to fix.The location on the island is fantastic, either go north or south for the day, or even stay around the neighbourhood.We will be back for sure in a year or two.
A guest from Victoria, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in September, 2014 The Rental Unit was great! When we arrived we did an explore the unit and checked the cupboards and closets to see what was there.Everything that one could want was in the Unit. The Unit was very clean and well laid out. We did find the place to put the garbage, the second day as there are two hallway exits to choose from.Did not use the stove, used the outside BBQ's, which was great since it was too hot to cook inside.The only thing is the BBQ's never seemed to get really hot, it took 40 mins to cook anything, I was not the only one since I thought it may have been operator error. I think the BBQ's need a good overhaul.The pool and saunas were really nice. It was very relaxing to be able to have an evening swim and a dip in the sauna. The gym was well supplied with equipment and well maintained also!Had a few meals at the Oasis on the resort, the food and service was excellent.Our stay was enjoyable and relaxing, exactly what we needed. If you are planning a trip to Kauai this is an excellent choice, also it is quite central to everything, halfway between North Island and South Island. Was great not to worry about keys or magnet strip cards! Everything was keypad operated!Highly recommended as a choice to consider and to put on your list as a vacation rental.Ron Jeffrey
A guest from Plainsboro, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in August, 2014 Overall excellent condo with good amenities. The beach and pool are steps away. Unit is very clean, furniture in excellent condition and sheets, towels etc are clean/like new. Nice addition to include beach chairs and towels, boogie board etc. Price is reasonable given the quality of the unit.
Marie M. from Rollingbay, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 Liked the shallow pools and waterslides. I do not swim but could have fun with the grandkids since the water was not over my head!
A guest from placentia, CA - California recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in August, 2014 Had an awesome time. Condo was perfect . We had an added bonus of double hurricanes during our vacation. The hurricane was not a concern, management came and took care of stowing outside items.Would stay there again
Reviewed by: Mandi W. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2014 Everything is wonderful in all of these units we stayed in two different units while we were there. Everything is modern and up to date. the beds were a little uncomfortable but it wasn't a big deal. I'd certainly stay there again.
A guest from Kelowna, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in February, 2014 We had a wonderful 3 week stay at waipouli beach resort. . There were 6 adult family members and we found this condo very comfortable and accommodating. We loved the location on the ground floor, steps away from the pool, barbecue and beach. Being on the back of the building meant the condo was a bit darker, and we didn't have the beautiful ocean views and sunshine on the lanai. However it was just a few steps around the building to find these. The bathrooms were beautiful and well stocked with everything we needed. We prepared most of our meals in the condo so we enjoyed the spacious kitchen and the high end appliances. The high ceilings and spacious rooms kept us from feeling crowded. There was beach gear and towels for everyone. We found the mattresses a bit hard and the furniture a bit tired but those would not keep us from renting this condo again. We loved the resort; the pool area is beautiful and we loved relaxing there as well as the beach.
Gary C. from Menai, NSW recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2014 Great accomodation. ReMax was very responsive and proffesional. Twin beds in 2nd bedroom not great, but certainly did not detract from our holiday.
Amazing customer service from Remax, small things missing
A guest from Berlin, Berlin recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2014 Overall vey satisfied. The only negatives are that the suite itself does not get much sunlight and the kitchen could use some frying pans as they are in really bad shape and the kitchen in general the just feels a bit under stocked if you are trying to cook meals. But Remax was really amazing allowing for early check ins and late check outs -would def. go through them for our next rental.
Leanne R. from Lefroy, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in December, 2013 This was such a nice place to stay. The condo had everything you could possibly need. It was very clean and was nice that it was on the ground floor. A couple of negativesThis unit gets no natural sunlight and had no patio furniture to enjoy outside.The pool was so cold. All the kids wanted to cram into the one hot tub they were allowed in. It's nice to have such a great pool but when it is so cold that nobody wants to go in it doesn't make sense.King bed had a spring sticking out the side of the bed that my son got caught on and hurt himself.Pans in kitchen were cheap and rounded on the bottom making it hard to fry anything like an egg or grilled cheese. We bough a new one and left it there.I would recommend this property but would be a little hesitant especially with the cold pool. I would personally look for something else next time that had a heated pool.
James S. from Carrollton, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in October, 2013 Great stay at Waipouli Beach Resort with my wife and little boy. Excellent location, right on the beach and near Safeway for shopping. The wandering pool was nice along with the space in the condo. Will return.
A guest from Oliver, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013 The condo was fantastic, spacious and comfortable. For people who love to have morning coffee on the lanai very disappointing. The price was reasonable but we would not rent this condo again because of the parking lot view and lack of furniture on the patio. Great pool and beach and fabulous restaurant. We were not told the locks on the condo would emobilize at check out time 10:00 am, almost got locked out.
Malcolm K. from Aiea, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 This was a wonderful surprise as my son and my granddaughters entered the premise and walked into our room. It was absolutely beautiful! All of us were very excited as we looked over our room. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed our stay on Kauai! I definitely will let all of our friends and family know of this wonderful vacation site. Thank you for the wonderful memories!
Rick C. from Reno, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in May, 2013 We had a great time at this condo. It worked well for our family. The property was awesome and the location was perfect. We had no problems and a wonderful time on Kauai. We swam, snorkeled, surfed, ziplined, horseback rode, cruised to Napali Coast and shopped and dined. Perfect. Thanks!!!
A guest from Grand Rapids, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in March, 2013 We enjoyed staying at this resort although we would pick a different unit next time. This unit does not have a good view of the mountains and has no view of the ocean. We did know this before we rented the unit, but we decided that the resort was one of the best options on the island, so we went ahead and rented the unit anyway. If you are going to Kauai, I would recommend Waipouli Beach Resort.
Tina B. from Germantown, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2013 This place was pristeen. The location was very convenient. The staff couldn't have been more accomodating. Will definately return and recommend the place highly.
Will C. from Calgary, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 18 days in February, 2013 Location in the complex was excellent, close to parking, beach, pool and enjoyed ground level for the children to play on the grass while making meals.We have stayed in the complex before in the G building and we liked this location better.For a upscale condo, was sad to see hooks missing for hanging towels, a set of curtains missing and only the brackets from the rod left. The kitchen was reasonably stocked with items for cooking meals. The luxury of the building and the cleanliness of linens was excellent.Overall, love the resort, the location in the building and on the island. Would recommend for families with young children.
Jared N. from Picture Butte, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2013 We had a wonderful stay and loved the condo. The location is great. Steps from pool, beach, parking lot and across the street from Safeway and Starbucks. ;) Thanks again!
A guest from Ozark, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2013 This is a great two bedroom condo. Every surface is up to date and high end. The resort is very nice with excellent grounds and facilities. The pools, hot tubs, fitness center and grills were all in excellent condition and exceeded our expectations.
Michelle S. from Bondi Junction, NSW recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012 Great experience. We loved everything about staying here. The condo is clean, super well equipped (it literally has everything you could ever need), and very spacious. The only negative is that it was a little dark inside. The complex's location is great too - right on the beach and directly across the road from shops/supermarket. The pool was great and fun for our kid a well. The location is the middle of the island which definitely makes exploring both north and south attractions manageable in short day trips. Would definitely recommend this place!
A guest from Menlo Park, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012 Little things are annoying. Sub Zero Freezer door is hard to open. The key pad on the oven is partially broken. Certain minutes not working like the 3. Needs a good working can opener and a cookie sheet. Surprised there was not provided shampoo.Not sure how to really turn off air conditioner completely. Tried and failed.Seemed to still come on so raised the temperature to prevent the constant instructions at all on how to trouble shoot. Instructions are dated for the garbage location and would like information for recycling of paper and the general use of recycle can. Very clean, location great, complex well cared for. Staff friendly.
likely to rent at property, but not through remax or this unit.
Therese V. from Santa Barbara, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012 unit was clean, but too many rule reminders established everywhere we looked. also, curtains wouldn't open and close correctly. black out curtains would be very nice. these curtains were very cheap and thin. also, there is no hospitality suite which we were not told at time of booking. most hotel companies have a hospitality suite for 1 hour intervals. we couldn't even find a remax representative on the property. we finally went back to the outrigger person (very professional and always there) who indicated that remax has no suite. very annoying. also, the beach chairs were broken and old. an update is necessary. my roommate fell off because the arm is ripped away from the rest of the chair. disappointed in this unit, but loved the property. next time, we're staying on the outrigger side for a few dollars more. i wish we would have known about this option before we booked with remax.
Steven H. from Falls Church, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 This was an outstanding property for families. Clean, great location and excellent pool for kids. Being so close to supermarket was key, able to eat several meals in, saving money on trip. Location is very central to great beaches and makes trip to Waimea Canyon not too far. Would highly recommend this property.
Karen J. from Calgary, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in March, 2012 My best friend and I celebrated our 60th Birthdays by going to Kauai (my favorite island). I have stayed next door to Waipouli Resort at Kapaa Shores many many times, but thoroughly enjoyed this new location with its pool, water slides (which we didn't use) and other amenities such as the restaurant on site. We would highly recommend staying at Waipouli.
A guest from Gabriola, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2012 The condo was lovely, big, comfy and clean. The kids loved the pool and the slides. It was too bad that the ocean was not swimmable but it was very pretty and we ended up exploring a lot of the beaches at the north end of the island.
A guest from Fairbanks, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2012 We really enjoyed our time there- very convenient location, fantastic pools, and comfortable accommodations. We were a little concerned about fronting the parking lot, but there was almost no noise or disturbances from it.My only little suggestion would be to be more clear about the laundry situation for check out. We were unclear as to what was required of us as the note stated something like "if the cleaners have to do more than 5 loads of laundry you will be charged as per your contract". We did several loads of towels, but you're never really sure how someone else may break up a batch of laundry.Otherwise, really nice place and having the beach toys, towels, chairs and cooler was a nice bonus.Thanks
great, if you like listening to power equipment every day
A guest from birmingham, michigan does not recommend this property. Stayed for 14 days in January, 2012 everyday, sounds of power equipment, 7 days a week, blowers, cutters, even chain saws on sunday.management doesnt return calls. never ending sounds of people doing landscape, cant hear the surf. cant sit by the pool. remax people no help after you arrive. no contact. front desk of hotel will not help if they know you are staying in condos. bitchy secretary in managers office. manager doesnt return phone calls.
Laura P. from Uniontown, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2011 This condo was beautiful and spacious. The appliances were top notch, great bathrooms and comfortable beds. Great set-up for a family of 4. View was of the parking lots, but we weren't in the room much during the day, we were out enjoying the pool and many sites on the island, and the first floor location kept us out of elevators and up and down stair cases. Washer and dryer were a great convenience, and with grocery shopping right across the street, it couldn't be more simple. Must get food from Bobby V's Italian restaurant next door - absolutely amazing. And Bubba's Burger was tasty and inexpensive (perhaps not so healthy though. Also, right up the road on the ocean side of the street is a place you can rent boogie boards for a day ($4-8/day). Great vacation!
A guest from NORTH ROYALTON, OHIO recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 Beds were on the hard side..not so comfortable. Took a while to figure out the furnance-and get the fan turned off from running constantly like when we arrived. Running all of the linens before our morning flight was a hassle. I did not have time to fold and put them away. Hope I am not penalized for that! As our unit was on the first floor and overlooking the parking lot, the famous ocean breezes were nonexistent. Could not leave doors open at night for safety, comfort, and privacy reasons-AC was needed! Tried to turn off AC while gone, but could not if we were in and out all day. Again, am concerned about being charged for this as it was stated that we would be charged for "unusual" electric bill. Don't know what the owner feels is unusual. Was very clean, but would not stay on the parking lot side again.
Robert B. from San Diego, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2011 The only thing that I wasn't expecting was that the beachfront was mostly rocks reef and coral. The pics I saw on the website made it look more sandy than it actually was. Beautiful, but not the best for playing in the ocean which I love to do. Overall I loved the place! Thanks
Martin C. from Bogota, recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2011 The condo was excelent, we have all we need, clean as in our house. We leave some stuf for the next visitors, I hope it helps. The pool was wondwrfull, the we use the barbecue ar nigth, it was great, forst time with "gas" barbecue. We are from Argentina and we use the "asado" with wood or charcoal. The beatch was great, but you have to use some food protection to get into the sea. The restaurant was great, we try "just for see" and we come back every day!!. We love the place and for sure, we will come back!!
David F. from Las Vegas, NV recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2010 The stay was amazing and the people who helped us were great. Angela Phyca(Remax Employee) was a great source of information and a wonderful person to know. The house cleaning lady was such a tremendous help.The only 2 issues we had was the first 2-3 days the washer and dryer didnt work and the wired internet was out of order for our entire stay. It was a bit inconvienent for I had work to do. The resorts wirelss was a little less to be desired for the connection was minimal in the rooms. Overall the resort was beautiful the condo was luxurious and our stay there was 2 thumbs up. We will back next year for sure. Thank you all again and God bless.
A guest from Waianae, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2010 We were vacationing from Oahu during our childrens fall break. We stayed for 5 days. This condo was perfect for my family. It was very, very nice, clean and spacious. We were able to cook complete meals in the well equipped kitchen. The children loved the pool, especially the slides! Property manager was very courteous and helpful! Hope to come back again!!! Definitely recommended!!!
NANCY F. from Chicago, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2010 Our stay at Waipouli was even better then I hoped for. The condo was perfect,the pool area was fantastic. The only problem we had was getting 11 yr. old Anthony out of the pool. The condo was located in a good location close to shops and easy access to the highways for touring the island. The island saying of "No Worries" truly apply to our stay at Waipouli. We would recommend this vacation condo to everyone. We hope to be able to return again to Kauai. It is not hard to understand why the people of Kauai are so warm and friendly, the beauty of this island is overwhelming. WAIPOULI ROCKS!
A guest from Kirkland, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2010 great condo, pool - easy access to shops and other parts of island. fabulous for families traveling with small children.
A guest from Calgary, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2010 Great pool for the kids. Good location on the island with easy access to north and south shores. Clean, new, great kitchen and bathrooms, very comfortable.
A guest from Golden, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2010 Thank you all there at REMAX for being patient and kind, as was everyone at the resort.Our condo was great. The biggest suggestion is better lighting in the living room to read by.Aloha,
Derick C. from Bellevue, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in June, 2009 Never having been to Kaua'i (or Hawaii for that matter) we were unsure as to where to stay. We chose the Waipouli Condo based primarily on price and amenities but were so pleased with it's location as well.The condo is situated mid-way up the island on the east side. In other words, and as it turned out, in the middle of everywhere we wanted to be. The condo was right across the street from a grocery store, drug store, several small gift shops, two coffee shops and within walking distance of several nice restaurants. It was also just a short drive to a number of beautiful beaches perfect for enjoying with our two children. When not exploring the island we spent hours by the pool, the kids playing on the water slides and enjoying shave ice in the afternoons.We are planning on returning to Kaua'i sometime in the future and we will definitely be back to stay at the Waipouli Luxury Condos. Thanks so much!
A guest from Kapaa, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2009 It was nice to have hot water in the room. (we did not have hot water in other room) However, the room smelled little mold and might be a bug in the bed. We had bitten by bug while we are sleep. Other than that we did like how convenient the place is.
