Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2016 Wonderful view, great location (close to a lot of shops, restaurants and a grocery store), great resort. We had a great time. We did the NaPali Coast raft tour, it was beautiful and would highly recommend it. We saw a lot of dolphins, turtles and the view of the coast is just incredible!!
Elaine J. from Clarendon Hills, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 The location was perfect to get north/south - less touristy than Popui; walk/bike path is perfect for daily walks any time of the day/night; mgmt company was responsive and helpful; Best is the on-site spa. Both my husband & I and loved it! Greg goes above and beyond - Dakota & Michelle are the best. Thanks for a great, memorable vacation.
Reviewed by: Erin R. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 Beautiful room w/view. Kitchen fit for a chef. Will be back with kids next time! Located right across from a shopping center. Easy access to South and North sides of island.
David - Gail A. from Orange, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 View from D402 was lovely. We loved sleeping with the doors open at night. Perfect suite for one couple. Two bathrooms but only one shower. Shower located in a tiny bathroom space connected to main bathroom with doors in between. For one couple not a problem. Kitchen beautifully appointed. Living space comfortable. We passed resort the first time.Signage for the Resort is small and easily missed.Oasis convenient - we liked the outside dining - food excellent.Beef Shed right next to this resort very popular with locals. Steaks and seafood great. Only negative, we felt the carpet in the elevators needed to be replaced. But this no way affected our stay. Everything else was spotless. Pool area well maintained. Staff generous with the pool towels. Wifi great.
A guest from Raleigh, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2016 Great location with grocery store and coffe shop directly across the street. Laid back but still a great variety of activities readily available.
Waipouli Beach Resort D402 was a great place to stay.

Leighton C. from Kapaa, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 Easy check in, very clean, loved our family stay there. As a plumber I noticed 1 thing, the cold side handle in master bath left side sink is leaking when turn on handle. just to let you know.Thank you for an awesome vacation.
Frank G. from Downingtown, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 My husband and I stayed in D402 and absolutely loved it. Very clean and had a gorgeous view of pool area & ocean. The other part that I wanted to give kudos to the management is for allowing us to stay a little later on our last day due to our flight being later in the afternoon. Very accommodating. I would highly recommend D402 and if had opportunity to go back to Kauai, would stay again. Another item of mention was convenience to grocery store & coffee shops! Thanks D402 for a fantastic time!!
A guest from Bend, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2015 Very happy with the unit. High quality furnishing and appliances. Could have used a little more instruction in using some of the appliances, but we figured them out.
Reviewed by: William M. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2015 We have stayed at numerous high end hotel / resorts on Kauai over the past few years and this property by far stands out as one of our best experiences so far. The rooms are neat and very clean (noted we tend to be picky when it comes to cleanliness). Every staff interaction at KEM was positive. If you are planning a trip to Kauai, don't miss the little gem.
Reviewed by: Richard J. recommends this property. Stayed for 27 days in July, 2015 This was our 50th wedding anniversary and is why we made it an extended stay. We made the right decision for a property. The condo we stayed in D402 was situated so the sun never came directly into the unit and we faced east to get full advantage of the trade winds. Having the shopping center directly across the street was another plus. We did a lot of sightseeing and activities. This is our favorite island, but this was our longest stay in the many times here.
Reviewed by: Steven R. C. recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in May, 2015 We loved everything about D402! The view was great and all the pictures online are accurate. The only suggestion for improvement would be that there are a few places where paint was touched up in living room and bathroom and the paint doesn't match perfectly. However, this in NO way affected our wonderful time in this unit. We will definitely re-book this unit in the future! Amanda Chambers

Great central location, easy drive to all areas of the island.

Reviewed by: Jackson B. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2014 We loved staying at Waipouli resort for a week vacation in Kauai. Having never been to Kauai, we were not sure where the best place to stay was, but I can tell you we made a great choice! The location of this resort is very convenient with restaurants, grocery, liquor and even Starbucks in easy walking distance. Plus this location makes it easy to drive anywhere on the island- and we drove all over the island. The condo is beautiful and so are the grounds. After seeing Kauai, I would venture to say this is one of the nicest resorts. The food in the Oasis restaurant is very good and reasonably priced by Kauai standards and has a breathtaking ocean front view. Our only complaints are that the electric cooktop does not work very well and the A/C in the bedroom did not work as well as we would have liked. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2014 Everything was as described to us and seen in pictures/other reviews. Room was large and clean. Good view of the pool and ocean. Kitchen was awesome and had all utensils, cups, plates, etc. that we needed. I'd definitely return here for another stay!
Reviewed by: Jef E. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2014 This was our first trip to Hawaii, specifically Kauai and this condo did not disappoint. The complex itself is well maintained and beautiful. The pool outstanding. Location wise this was perfect! Safeway directly across the street, quick drives to everywhere on the island and great sunrises. The condo unit itself was better than the pictures. Very clean, high end appliances, great layout and view was perfect for the morning sunrise. Portable cooler to use was a very nice to have. Washer/Dryer were full sized and just like ours from home. Quite, comfortable bed and furniture. Highly recommend this unit. Management team was easy to work with and very responsive.
Reviewed by: Michele O. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 The location was perfect; close to the airport and across the street from safeway, starbucks, and McDonalds with great shopping just up the road. The room was well maintained and had everything we needed. We had no issues with the pool area that I have seen mentioned by others. The restaurant at the resort has a very limited menu and is a bit pricey compared to others we went to. We would definitely stay here again.
A guest from Mission Viejo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2014 We had a great time. A few little suggestions are need ceiling fan in bedroom, bbqs were not all working, need a cage over fire sprinkler in bedroom closet, the seal in the master shower leaks on the floor. I wish the pool was lit better at night and some sort of entertainment nightly in the bar. Otherwise, The condo was beautiful and well maintained and we really find enjoy our visit.
Reviewed by: John E. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2014 Our unit was fantastic, but there we a few minor areas that could be better:1) Instruction provided for internet access didn't work - I had to make a couple of phone calls to get the right information2) Several screens were ripped and we needed to provide access to maintenance for them to be fixed3) The shower stall is too small and the door leaked badly
Reviewed by: Kayla R. recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in April, 2014 The condo was very clean and large for a one bedroom. The pool was awesome and the gym was nice. Not very big but hardly ever packed. Management was very friendly and professional. All around great place to stay.
We stayed in three different units and loved each one of them.
Reviewed by: Barbara B. recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in March, 2014 Everything was great - we loved Waipouli and had a very laid back relaxing vacation.The only suggestions we have to note are:The blue info sheets in the units were not current re internet access. And an explanation of the TV workings would be helpful as well as a TV guide.Other than that everything was great, very organized from start to finish.Thank you so much
Reviewed by: Brent C. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2014 We had a wonderful time. The complex is conveniently located in the middle of the Island so it makes it an easy drive to North or South locations. The condo had all the amenities we could want. One little thing we noticed was the couch was starting to show wear and tear. Other than that we enjoyed our time here.

Reviewed by: Robert K. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013 We certainly lucked out when we selected not only D402 but Waipouli Resort. It is in a terrific location near shops, restaurants and midway to the south of Kauai, so driving all around is a breeze.The resort environment is clean, comfortable and quiet. Oasis restaurant is a must for anyone staying at the resort. Don't miss this place.
Reviewed by: Jackie M. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 We were extremely pleased with this one bedroomed property. It had everything you could possibly need for your stay. We only had to buy food and some drinks. Excellent condition. The property management guys called to ensure there were no problems or if we needed anything. Only issue was we were told our code would still work for the pool but it didn't. However a security guard was kind enough to let us into the pool for our last few hours. The Mai Tais at the Oasis were the best we had on our 3 island trip and the food was good too! Highly recommended - we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Reviewed by: Ariadna R. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 This place is simply great! I Unitially wanted to stay at a hotel but the more I looked into this place, the more I was convinced this would be where I would my vacation time. I first spoke to a represantative whom helped me find the perfect place for my family of 4 (2adults,2 children). The represantative was helpful and very quick to look for a good deal. Our room was great! Part oceans/pool views. The room it self was kept up very well, beds were comfortable. The pool and fitness center was also very cool. I will definately he returning and recommending this place to family and friends!

Reviewed by: Ira J. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2013 Quality of property amenities and view were fantastic. Great pool area,clean, safe, great Oasis cafe food and drinks. Only complaint was no paper towels, no cleaners for granite,lacking tools to help keep condo clean during stay. Several washed dishes still clearly dirty, many knives, still with food stains. Granite counters were dark in color, but in the right light or angle could see was dirty and soiled in places. Sofa was soiled, did not sit on entire stay. Wonderful space, but could use better maintenance, products to help guest keep clean. Would stay again. Mahalo
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013 My husband and I had never been to Hawaii and chose this spot to celebrate our anniversary. The resort was spectacular! Beautiful grounds and pool and conveniently located directly across from a small shopping center and grocery store. We found this location on the east side of the island a perfect midway point for daily travels either north or south and were able to explore much of the island in only 4 full days. Our room was clean, quiet, and beautifully maintained. We did not bring our kids, but they would have LOVED it. Note - the beach at this resort is NOT swimmable, but the pool makes up for it.
Reviewed by: Ashley N. recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in April, 2013 We had a great stay and loved the location of this particular unit. The rental company was very helpful and always quick to respond to questions or emails, which we greatly appreciated. Everything was in great condition, and we were also happy to see that this unit actually had some spices in the cabinet and some sand toys for the kids. We have stayed at Waipouli before when none of these conveniences were available. My only suggestion for D402 is that the dishes and silverware seem to be getting down in count and supply may need to be replenished. Also, with all of the children that come through Waipouli, perhaps it would be nice to provide some more plastic cups or dishes. Just a suggestion. Thanks for the nice stay!

Reviewed by: Del M. recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in November, 2012 As this was our first trip to Kauai, we weren't sure where to stay. We picked Kapa'a for its central location and then found D402 at Waipouli Beach Resort. Staying in Kapa'a was a good choice - it is a reasonable distance/time to any activity and Kapa'a has great amenities. We stayed 10 nights at this resort. The condo was very nice. It was quiet, had a great view, and had everything we needed. With the trade winds, we only used the air con briefly for one afternoon. It is great having the two bathrooms. Being poolside with the ocean view is definitely nicer than being on the road side, although there can be a fair bit of daytime/evening noise from the pool - but it is 'happy noise'! The sofa bed needs to be replaced - mattress is pretty bad and couch cushions are showing age, but management is now aware of this and were very helpful in bringing in an extra foam mattress cover on our first day, which helped for sure. We plan to return to Kauai and would definitely stay in this unit again.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in September, 2012 We were so impressed with the Waipouli Beach Resort. It is centrally located on the island in the town of Kapa'a which offers great restaurants, natural food stores, farmers markets etc. The Waipouli resort is right on the beach, has a fun pool area with water slides, multiple hot tubs, bbqs, a fantastic restaurant called the Oasis, with an excellent server named Henry. And the best Mai Tai in the world--it is all made from scratch, no syrups, canned juices, fake ingredients etc. You can't go wrong here!! The kitchen inside the condo is gorgeous and the whole place was first class comfort. The only small gripe I have is the shower head was the wrong type for the shower stall. It was too wide of a spray and sort of spitty causing the water to go everywhere except on your body. This is a simple fix of changing the shower head and does not effect our overall very positive experience. We took baths instead of showers in the huge jacuzzi tub and it was divine. We could have called management about the shower head and I have no doubt they would have fixed it right away, but we were too busy exploring and having a great time to be bothered with this.We stayed in one of the private condos at Waipouli and still had access to all the spa, conceriege, pool, restaurant, beach, parking etc services that the resort offers. Josh, the manager who booked our private condo at the Waipouli was very nice, professional, informative and got us a great deal! A private condo is the way to go because you have a full kitchen, bath, laundry in the condo and still have access to resort amenities. We will be back and will stay at the Waipouli Beach Resort!

Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 We were blorwn away by the layout, design and amenities offered in this 1 bd/2 ba unit -- a luxlurious, yet comfortable vakay experience.The layout, appliances, and amenities found in this kitchen were so fabulous, our local chef friend cooked us a gourmet dinner for our 25th anniversary in this kitchen! The bedroom was very comfortable with extra nice bedding & towels in the bath areas. The huge double sink and vanity area was perfect with lots of storage drawers and a large garden tub in the corner. The shower and second bath area are adjacent to the master bath with a door to close the two off. Nice concept. A balcony off the bedroom could have been a bit bigger, but we enjoyed having drinks and enjoying the morning sunrises there. The furnishings were very tastefully done, laid out nicely, and super comfortable. We had plenty of space in the entryway for golf clubs.. We only had 4 nights in this unit, as we agreed to move halfway thru our stay to another unit in Bldg. G. The Penthouse we moved to didn't compare in quality to this lovely unit (see review for G301). The Management Co. smoothly handled everything for us. This unit directly overlooks the meandering pool area and the ocean view beyond! Our days here were relaxing & peaceful. But I wouldn't say that this property would appeal to the 55+ group, as there were mostly young famlies with babies, tweens, and teens who got a bit loud at times. But we certainly enjoyed this unit to the fullest! The keyless entries take a bit of getting used to, especially getting in and out of the pool area. We needed nothing more in this lovely lunit!
Reviewed by: Cori A. recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in April, 2012 Upon reserving this property Josh was great at taking care of our needs. Condo is beautiful! The main downfall is no service at the pool. You also can't bring in pool coolers to the pool. The Bar-B-que's need some work but were nice to have by the pool. Upon checking in though we were told just to go to our room. We didn't know where our room was.? Kapaa was a nice central location for seeing all the Island.

A guest from bush, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2011 The resort was terrific, our only complaint was the "no coolers in pool area" rule. This would be fine if they had a poolside bar to serve drinks and snacks but they don't. There is a poolside restaurant but it doesn't open till 4. The location is great because it's a short drive to anywhere on the island. You can drive either north or south within about 45 mins. The only thing about being on the east side is that it didn't seem to be as sunny as the rest of the island, it was cloudy almost every day. This could be because of the time of year we came, early October, or we just had bad luck for the week. Poipu on the south shore was sunny every day we went. But overall it was a terrific stay on a beautiful tropical island. Would definitely recommend staying here.
Tami S. from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2011 This was our second visit to Kauai and the location was perfect to visiting other parts of the island, the perfect halfway point. The kitchen was well apppointed, decorations were nice, sofa and bed were comfortable. Nice balcony view of the pool and the ocean. We can't wait to come back with the kids because the pool was great, beach was ok for minimal swimming. Josh was so helpful and allowed us a few hours extra while we waited for our late departure which was greatly appreciated.
A guest from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2011 We looked at many places to stay. We have a 17mo old and wanted a place where he would also have fun in a safe environment. There are many nice condos on the island, but this one seemed to be one of the few that had a kid friendly, fenced in pool/waterslide/lazy pool with koi fish feeding, a grassy area to run in, etc. The beach is accessible but it is not as sandy as we would have liked and the waves are too rough for babies. That being said, there are plenty of places to drive to in the north and south that have nice beaches. This place seemed to be the only location that was on a beach and was very accessible to 3 groceries (Foodland, Safeway, Big Save) and food (subway, pizza hut, taco bell, chinese restaurant, indian restaurant, and 2-3 italian restaurants) just across the street!. Also it was centrally located, easy access to the north and south parts of the island. The inside furnishings were nice and clean. The floor plan was good and although only 1 bedroom, there were 2 toilets which was useful. If you are looking for a secluded area for a romantic getaway (away from kids), then this place may not be the best. However, It is a great place for a family with kids.
A guest from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 25 days in February, 2011 This unit has the most magnificent view you could want on this property... a full-on ocean view to see both sunrises and moonrises... and a long total view of the wonderful winding swimming pool.

Safeway across the road is just fine and a quick walk if you just need a couple of things. My daughter loved the pool (5 years old) and could spend hours upon hours there. You need to rent a car for this island - there are many places to explore! We would hit a beach, drive back and finish the day in the pool. Or, take the trip to Waimea canyon and unwind before supper in the pool. Very clean and well-maintained. The unit we stayed in is managed by Kauai Exclusive Management and the rep Josh helped us out with any questions or concerns promptly.Last night we were there we went to the Oasis bar and restaurant on the property and watched the whales frolicking without binoculars.

Go to:Kilauea lighthouse, Hanalei town and bay, secret beach, Lydgate park if you have kiddies (or want to practice snorkeling), Waimea canyon, go to the walmart in Lihue to buy cheap beach toys and lifejackets, Smith family Luau - very close and really beautiful grounds and a nice show.We will be back - we may stay in a larger condo next time - D402 is 1 bedroom with a sofa bed in the living room, but will definitely go through Kauai Exclusive Management - they take care of 20 or so units - they took very good care of us!After being on Oahu for a couple of days, Kauai was a lovely quiet place - very laid back!We wanted to go to:Polihale beach, but got there and the road in was under a lot of water so we didn't want to risk getting our rental car in trouble!

Phaedra E. from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in December, 2010 We had an amazing stay at the Waipouli Beach Resort and Spa in Kapaa! The Resort was beautful and the view from our Penthouse was amazing every night. The pool was so much fun with all the waterfalls and slides! The suite had a huge well equipped kitchen with all the bells and whistles and proved to be a dream to cook in. The bathrooms were fantastic and the master bath was like having your own jacuzzi in house. Having a washer/dryer in the suite was also a bonus! The TV's were awesome and having a DVD made things great for when we wanted to rent movies - and we are bolth huge movie watchers. The Resort and the grounds were always clean and always well kept. The staff were always friendly and helpful. We loved the pool girls the best - Ish and Sheila (I hope I got the names right)! The location of the Resort is just perfect... with SuperValu, Starbucks, Blockbusters, etc... across the road it made it easy the pick up groceries, etc... We will definately be back and I will highly recommend this 5 star resort to my friends and family! Many thanks to Josh (the Property Manager) for setting us up in this gem of a Property. I have to say it was the best Christmas & New Years Holiday we have ever had! Mahalo!

Hamid R. from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2010 Thank you for the accomodations, we were very happy with the complex and the service was great. My daughter could not get enough of the water slides. It is a beautiful place to stay in kauai. I will recommend it. Josh was a pleasure to work with.
Reviewed by: Kate C. recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2010 We LOVED this place and had such a great experience. The Paniola cocktail made at the restaurant right off the pool and hot tubs was great. We drank MANY of them while we were there. There is a great gluten free bakery next store that has yummy fresh muffins and baked goods in the morning. I can't eat gluten so it was a special treat. The accomodations are amazing with great appliances and classy furnishing. We've had bad experiences with "hawaiian condo decor" before the is dirty and old. This place was spotless and easy to keep clean even without maid service. A lot of places don't have air conditioning or hot tubs in hawaii and this place had both. My husband doesn't get much time off so when we go on vacation we like to stay nice places. I can't say enough nice things about the unit we stayed in, I'd recommend (and have) to anyone I know. We'd LOVE to go back!
