Susan B. from Brooklyn, CT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2016 We were very impressed with condo and the complex. The condition of the unit was excellent and all the items in the unit were first rate. The resort was in a great location and well kept. We had a terrific time while there. We highly recommend this facility to anyone planning on spending time in Kauai.
Mary A. from Wasilla, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in March, 2016 The condo is right on the ocean, you can hear the waves, feel the trade winds from your balcony. It was very quiet and peaceful, you would never know your in a huge condo complex being on the end unit with no neighbors, just views of the Pacific Ocean amd amazing sunrises.

Stayed for 10 days in December, 2015 The location was perfect for our was very clean & had everything in it that our family needed for our Christmas celebration, including the slow cooker.The patio was large & we enjoy the view of the ocean & the afternoon sunshine & evenings listening to the ocean waves. A perfect holiday experience .thanks

David W. from Edmond, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2015 Could not have asked for a better place to stay. The room was as advertised. The only negative we had was the 10am early check out.
A guest from Beaverton, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 We stay in condos across the U.S. and were very pleased with this unit's size, layout of indoor and outdoor space and grandeur of furnishings. The kitchen knives were horribly dull (a common problem), and some of the nonstick cookware should be retired, but these are small issues in the scheme of things. We needed an extra parking pass for a 2nd car, and called the security office twice and left messages with no reply. I spoke to a security staff member who was perplexed, and wondered if the email had the correct number. The staff at Kauai Exclusive is friendly and attentive, and Sonja Keale our concierge is fantastic!!!
Reviewed by: Brody E. recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2015 Really loved staying here with our young kids. Proximity to everything worked well for us. The layout was lovely and had high end appliances. Property was clean. Liked the balcony and the ability to sit out and enjoy the ocean and sunrises. Only complaints: kitchen taps were loose, no dish cloths and no pens to be found. Otherwise, very well equipped. Mahalo for everything and for sharing your home with us!
Reviewed by: John P. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2015 This corner unit faces east and south and has by far the largest lanai in the resort. The unit is spacious and very well equipped and organized, everything in its place with helpful notes on the operation of equipment, except it was not clear where to dispose of garbage and recycling. The water park in the centre of the resort is amazing and great for families wanting to relax at the resort. Safeway and Foodland just across the street was very convenient. Kauai Exclusive Management was helpful, thorough and reliable in all pre-arrival services.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in January, 2015 Excellent location. Unit is on the beach. Excellent views. Oasis Restaurant food was ok. Condo grounds are very well maintained. Pool area needs more lounge type chairs (people put towels and items on chairs to hold them all day and leave causing a shortage of lounge chairs). We noticed people took pool lounge chairs to beach. Had a small issue with the room but property management was very responsive and immediately took care of us. Condo was fairly clean, but windows needed to be washed. Couch, carpet and floors (socks got dirty from tile floor) need to be cleaned. Could not rate unit as "spotless". Unit will need a refresh in future. Fast wireless connection.
Thank you for this feedback. I have shared it with our cleaning team and have since had the tile machine scrubbed! I have also shared your feedback with our owner and we are in the process of replacing the couch. Thank you for being our guest!
Reviewed by: Bob R. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2015 The unit was excellent. The furnishings and connected hotel were very well maintained and had nice amenities. The rooms in the condo were very spacious and the quality of the finishes were first class. The condo is about half way between the north and south parts of the island so getting around is easy. Traffic right around the hotel is a little congested, but nothing major.We had a problem with the dryer not working part way through our stay and the management company made arrangements in another empty unit for us to use that dryer. They were very accommodating.I would highly recommend unit G301.

Reviewed by: A guest does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 The condo and Kauai Exclusive management were fantastic! We appreciated Sonia recommendation of renting beach cruisers and enjoyed the bike path every morning....stopping at Java Kai for lattes and delicious fresh homemade scones a MUST!! Snorkeling with all the sea turtles at Anini beach was memorable. That being said, the resort management was beyond disappointing: kids are not allowed to play or have toys in the pool, waiting in line for towel check out/in frustrating (plus towels were threadbare, stained and frayed...we went out and purchased our own) no water dispensers by the pool, fitness center dirty, etc. not having a good beach to swim/snorkel by the resort was a downside. It was our 5th visit to the island, and the Hanalai and Poipu areas offer better beaches, restaurants and activities in our opinion.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 The unit was as it appeared online, and had very good views since it's a corner unit. It was a short distance from the parking lot to the elevator to the unit. The major negative is that the beach was not enjoyable- there was a large reef just offshore so swimming was very dangerous. Additionally, there were many Portuguese Man-o-war jellyfish all over the beach. If you like going straight from your condo to the sand, this is not the resort for you. However there is a very good beach up the road, just a 4-5 minute drive.
Reviewed by: Patricia D. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 My husband, son, his new fiance and I spent the last 5 nights of our vacation in Unit G301. It was spacious and very well furnished. We had beautiful views of the ocean and mountains from the lanai and the ocean breezes were awesome. The central location of the property allowed us to explore the island easily and often. The entire property was well maintained and the pool area was great. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.

Reviewed by: Charie F. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 Another unit we had reserved dropped us and the management team gave us the option to rent G301 instead. At first we were disappointed until we arrived. The location was really private, great views of the ocean and in our opinion a much better location than where we were suppose to stay. Loved the layout and all the comfortable furniture. The kids absolutely loved the resort pools and so did we. I would highly recommend this particular unit. We loved our stay.
Reviewed by: John G. recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in March, 2014 We loved unit G301! The views were amazing with the ocean right there on one side and lush mountains out the other. The quality of the unit and furnishings was top notch other than a couple minor issues (one of the screens was torn and the master Jacuzzi tub didn?t work). The pool with water slides was a hit with the kids and adults! Location on the island was great in that we could hit south or north beaches and sites in 30 or so minutes depending on the weather. One drawback was the beach right outside the unit, while nice, is really not swimmable as its very rocky. We paid more than we typically do for vacation accommodations and have no regrets, we loved our stay.Cheers!John
Reviewed by: Scott R. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 We came to Kauai during Christmas to celebrate our 25th Anniversary with our children. What a truly awesone way to end the year! This was our second trip to Waipouli (7/2007) and it was even better this time....mostly because of the unit. We think G301 or G401 could possibly be the best units in the entire complex. Our view was literally 270* with both ocean and mountain views from the rooms and expansive lanai. The midpoint location in Kapaa is perfect for all the island excursions that you need to do on Kauai. We highly recommend a Waimea Canyon excursion, Kalapaki beach next to Kauai Lagoons, and hiking the trail at Ke'e beach. Blue Dolphin tours provide unforgetable journeys. We did the Napali coastline snorkeling in July and whale watching sunset tour this time (seasonal). The unit itself is very comfortable and the 3rd bathroom made it much nicer for our family of 5. The kitchen was nice to be able to cook our own meals....eating out would be very time consuming AND expensive. There are 2 grocery stores across the street-we preferred Foodland. Enjoy your trip to the Garden Isle!
Reviewed by: Patti K. recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in November, 2013 After spending 12 days at Waipouli Beach Resort I was relieved that I used Kauai Exclusive Management. Josh, Patrick, and Sherri are an a amazing professional vacation rental team. Every email, phone call, repair, question, and concerns were addressed immediately. The resort is about 15 minutes away from the airport. My gorgeous and immaculate condo, G301, had an unblocked private ocean view 150 feet from the beach! I had a gourmet kitchen with a huge private lanai. I loved the resort grounds, swimming pools, and Poi Pond. But there is more! Safeway, Starbucks, Longs, and a big health food store is across the street. Plus the location is the 1/2 point to Princeville and Poipu. Perfect great vacation. I loved it.
Reviewed by: Robin M. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2013 The location is perfect. Close to everything. The unit was very nice. The property was a bit aged and the restaurant was not very friendly. Overall, we had a wonderful time and love Kauai very much.
Reviewed by: Nicole G. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2013 We loved the unit! My biggest complaint was the master bath. The toilet lid was very loose, the jets on the tub did not work, and before we figured that out we tried opening the window doors and the left panel didn't work properly so we had to maneuver to get it closed well enough and then kept it closed for the rest of our stay. The window and toilet weren't too much of an issue but the jets on the tub were a huge disappointment.

Beautiful views from every window and balcony. We stayed at Waipouli along with another family (who were in a different unit). Kids enjoyed the pool and slides, and the grills were sparkling clean. Nice location near Kapaa and Safeway grocery store right across the street was very convenient. We had a wonderful time!
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in May, 2013 We stayed in G301 at the end of May/early June of 2013, the weather was quite humid, so we were delighted to have AC during the heat of the day (overhead fans nice at night). Easy shopping across the street, 20 minute walk into Kapaa, 5 minute walk to bike rentals to bike the Kauai Bike Path (a must if you stay here). Very deluxe rental, just know that the beds are thick tempurpedic style mattresses, very different from our firm bed at home. Resort wifi had a weak signal, as did our phones, if that matters. We went to the restaurant on site, Oasis on the Beach, for dinner and brunch, and it was out of this world 5 out of 6 times, a fantastic farm to table restaurant oceanfront. The pool really is for children and sunbathers (barbequers in the evening). The Fitness Center was great, nice to have AC, all the equipment you need, in a nice location.

Reviewed by: Jasmine B. recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in March, 2013 Stayed 10 days and very satisfied. The unit is well appointed, clean and most important of all very private. We stayed in the same complex but facing the pool and right above the restaurant kitchen. It was very noisy and the smell from the restaurant unbearable.One improvement could be to get better mattresses for the beds.

That starts first at the Oasis on the Beach - the resort bar and restaurant. Vanessa and Joel were amazing at the bar and the live music added to the evening.We can't wait to get back!

Reviewed by: Bruce R. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2012 we stayed here on our honeymoon. we stayed in G301 which was an awesome room - 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, top-notch kitchen, balconies and great common area. The resort is great if you want something not too large (too many people), on the ocean, with pool/3 hot tubs, great restaurant, lots of places in walking distance (Papaya food market is like a whole foods and is 3 minutes across the street by foot).a key here was that we rented through the guys at Kauai Exclusive Management. They are the agents for this unit and others at this property. they gave us a great price (for 5 nights) and when we had a minor problem they were on site and fixed it within the hour.location is great in the middle of the island, everything you need is there (spa too) and with a sweet kitchen you can make your own meals (relaxing breakfast or grill dinner fish by the pool).
Fantastic unit - upscale, clean, private with great views
Reviewed by: David G. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2012 Nothing but positives to say about this unit and the complex. G301 is on the far corner of the property and away from the pool and other buildings. Great open views to the ocean as well as privacy. Unit has all top-of-the-line finishes and appliances; really just a fantastic place to spend the week in Kauai. The location is great as it's 20 minutes to the North or South side plus there are lots of diverse restaurants nearby. Grocery and Starbucks right across the street - walking distance.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Overall we really enjoyed our stay, but prefer a resort with more dining options and room service. The room was beautiful, fully stocked with everything you could want. The jetted tubs didn't work, though. The beach area near the resort is not good for swimming and the best beaches are 45 minutes away. The onsite restaurant, Oasis, had terrible dinner service with tiny portions for the price. We tried lunch once at the Oasis, which was very good, and the bartender was great. The internet photos make the pool look amazing, but it was not very big. I would recommend this property to a friend with the caveat that it's not a full service rssort for those who prefer that environment.
Reviewed by: Mimi E. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 9 days in June, 2012 We expected Oceanfront view and was over-sold the room's G301 location - apparently it is only "Oceanview". The interior was what we expected - extremely clean and high end amenities (although the master spa had water stain/rusted facuet and did NOT work). However the view was only partial from the lanai with most of it facing a parking lot. Both bedrooms looked out into a parking lot with a run down resort beyond. At night the individuals car alarm would beep as they enter and exit. Car alarms or a rooster would crow every hour or so making it difficult to sleep. (Chickens are a problem on the entire island.) To add to that the master bed did not have any support on one side but was slightly better on the other, with a firm lump inbetween - it was very uncomfortable.We did enjoy the sound of the ocean from the living room which did face the ocean. With all the breeze, my husband didn't even need AC. We did enjoy the large lanai which allowed the entire family to have dinner outside (and my children to opportunity to talk to people in the parking lot below). The resort amenities was wonderful. Our children went swimming almost every day and loved the waterslide. On certain days the children can feed the Koi. (Check with front desk as date and time varies). The Oasis grill also had good local food. (It is one of those high-end restuarant, smaller portions, slightly expensive, but tasty and great service. Since they are right next to the pool, happy hour beer for $3 was very welcomed.) We love the resort and will go back again, but will not book with Kauai Exclusive as they are over-priced and did not provide what we expected in terms of room location.
Reviewed by: Robin S. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2012 This Penthouse missed the mark for us. Overall, a beauty of a resort, but this unit was not a "comfortable" living space. The layout is like a maze & awkward getting from room to room. The Master was the best room in the house with its own lanai. The living area was cramped for 1,500+ sq. ft. The sofa was hard and not deep enough to get comfortable. The light switches and bulbs were ridiculous. Couldn't see which worked what. The layout in the galley-type kitchen was inconvenient with no flow to it. The small appliances seemed to be very dated. The jets in the M.B. "spa" tub would not turn on. Sink space was cramped for 2 people. We had a choice of 3 showers, but no way to adjust the extremely wide spray. This Penthouse has seen a lot more "living" than expected. The beach was just steps away with beautiful sunrises, and the lanai was our favorite peaceful hangout space after a day of golf! A much needed respite from the pool scene, which was anything but that. Other reviews recommend the resort for people 55+. If you like screaming babies, "tweeners," and out-of-control older teens, this is the place for you!. We'll pass for the summer. The management company handled all questions in a prompt manner. The air conditioning requires every door to be shut tight and "magnetized" for it to turn on. See our review of Unit D402. Aloha, G301! Freshen up and get back to Penthouse status.
