D312, is one of the 2 best 1 bedroom views in the complex. It?s an end unit tucked back in a corner and up high enough so people walking the ground can't pier in. D312 boasts that famous view at night with the illuminated and torch lit pool. This prime Waipouli suite has direct ocean views as there are some 1 bedrooms that you have to lean your head out the patio to see the ocean. Also with some of the 1 bedrooms, you are looking right into the other close by units/decks. It's a 3rd floor so your view of the ocean is not blocked by foliage or courtyard rooftops.
Winner of two first prizes in the $2,000,000 + condo category of the 2006 '50th Parades of Homes is one of many reasons to visit this special property. The furniture was selected and designed by the renown interior designer, Philpotts and Associates, known for their incredible resorts and custom homes around the world.
The stylish interior of this 1 bedroom, 2 bath, 900 square foot unit includes top of the line kitchen with a Wolf glass cook top, oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator, GE profile microwave, Fisher Paykel dual dishwasher drawers, granite counter top and African Mahogany cabinets. 2 full bathrooms with Peruvian Travertine stone surrounds, soaking tub and shower to relax any over hiked traveler.

Waipouli Beach Resort & Spa boasts Kauai's only heated fresh water lazy river pool with one cave, two water slides, three sand bottom whirlpool spas, three waterfalls and a child friendly sand bottom beach area.

Take a jog or walk on our outdoor paved walkways that circle the entire resort or enjoy the fitness room. Pamper yourself at the 5,000 square foot Spa By the Sea with massage and much more.
The location of the resort is superior in the sense that one is halfway to each side of the island, making all activities a short drive. Directly across the street is Safeway, Long's Drugstore, Starbucks, Subway, Jamba Juice, a Hawaiian Jewelry store, Blockbuster and many more shops and restaurants. It is also a short walk to the historical town of Kapaa which has fantastic restaurants, organic food stores, boutique shopping, a library, and yoga studio. Nearby 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 secluded beaches.
Lydgate Park is only a 5 minute drive away, the Wailua river is 2 minutes away, and Waipouli Beach Resort is lots of family fun and relaxation without going anywhere.

Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2016 D312 was such an enjoyable condo! The location in the complex was very quiet, the view lovely, and out of the wind! High quality unit, so beautiful and comfortable. The description was accurate and amenities useful. We loved the bike path (shared use path)& bike rack for rentals. Bicycling was great, saw whales in the distance,(even from unit lanaii), & biked to Lydgate Park for a swim. The resort is walking distance to many stores as well as eateries. "Adventures": Tubing in the mountains, kayaking the Wailua River with hike to waterfall, and catamaran snorkel/NaPali & whale watching cruise. There was a monk seal near the resort beach for a few days. Kapaa is a great,central location. Resort never felt crowded and was so quiet! Great sound proofing! Would definitely recommend. Thank you!

Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2015 Great family vacation rental! Our unit had a nice view over the resort looking out towards the ocean. Condo was well stocked and easy to access via elevator or stairs. Resort itself is perfect for families with young kids. Sandy bottom kids pool was fantastic and our 13 mo enjoyed the waterslide and the lazy river/waterfalls! Never had any problem finding chairs by the pool. Beach outside the resort is nice but isn't great for swimming (reef break and currents). When the tide is going out there are fantastic little pools that are nice and warm and perfect for little kids to play in safely. Resort is walking distance to swimming beaches and a short drive to surfing beaches.Restaurant on the resort is one of the best on the island IMO! Safeway and Starbucks across the road so super convenient to stock up on supplies if not into dining out every night. Same goes for drinks- can buy directly from bar at resort restaurant or BYOB.Cons: It would be nice if a crib/pack and play were available free of charge although I understand there are costs associated with keeping these in good shape and properly sanitized (I think we only paid $40 for the week). Likewise, we were not able to rent a high chair from the property management which would have been a great help with a busy young one (unless you don't mind constantly wiping peanut butter and mashed baby food off the windows and furniture). Fortunately there are several places on the island you can rent baby equipment from for reasonable rates.All in all I would say this is a great place for a holiday with children. We have stayed at many 5 star hotels/resorts on different islands in Hawaii and this was by far our favourite stay for a family with a young baby. Don't think we will be doing a regular hotel-type holiday anytime soon but can't wait for our next stay at Waipouli resort!!
Dean F. from Lake Tapps, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2015 This is a nice clean property, exactly as described in the listing. D312 is a clean well appointed unit with an ocean and pool view. The only problem was the WiFi. The general resort WiFi signal is very strong - but very slow with many dropped connections. WiFi specific to unit D312 was promised on arrival but never materialized . . .

Great location for access to the beach, bike trail & walking path and stores. We liked the views from our room, the pool is my favorite. Most restful time spent again on your property.
Karla J. from Atascadero, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 The property was exactly what we wanted. The unit we stayed in (and the complex overall) was very beautifully kept and had excellent amenities. My boyfriend always complains about the beds when we travel, but this one was just as good as the one we have at home. I loved the unit and loved the property in general. I don't think I've ever given ANYTHING a 5 star review before, but I can't think of a single thing I would change.

A guest from BROOMFIELD, Colorado recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2015 Had a very good time. This place was recommended to us by friends and it was everything they described. Very good center location to get to both the south and north side of the island.
Reviewed by: Eileen M. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2015 We stayed in a one bedroom condo on the 3rd floor. The unit was very clean and comfortable with well stocked kitchen. Since the unit is facing the pool, it did get noisy at times with children enjoying the pool. The ocean view was limited. The Kapaa location was perfect for what we wanted to do - not too far of a drive to the north or south end of Kauai. There are many restaurants close by and grocery store and Starbucks across the street. Very convenient.

Everything you need is there . . . and it is all top quality. The view is great, as long as they have trimmed the palms back a bit.We loved the location as it was in the middle of the island, allowing for easy travel times to the north and south ends. Great beaches nearby and lots of fun places to eat.If we go back to Kauai . . . this is the place we would stay.

Mom and Dad enjoyed our morning coffee on the bedroom balcony- an awesome view while the children enjoyed the pool. The resort is absolutely beautiful with direct beach access and conveniently located to everything. Mom and daughter enjoyed a relaxing pedi at the spa while Dad and son went boogie boarding at a nearby beach. We were sad to leave, and look forward to our next visit!
Reviewed by: France C. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2014 My husband, son, and I stayed in this condo the week of Christmas. It is a gorgeous place and we had lots of room. My son loved the pool and I appreciated the towel service. The location allowed us to visit both the North and South shores easily. We cooked our food most days and having a Safeway across the street was very convenient. The traffic does get very heavy on that stretch of road and continuing north through Kapaa. There is a bypass that is worth taking if you plan on going further than Kapaa. Unfortunately, you need to get into the bumper-to-bumper traffic for a short while to get to it. Our only disappointment was how the rental service seem to focus on the early check-out time as opposed to welcoming us. Also, they had to make us stay at the hotel next door on our last night because the condo was not available. Fair enough but they paid for the night and charged us the same as the condo. Not only was the hotel room incredibly tiny and cheaper but we still had to pay a resort fee when we checked-out. Not cool.
Reviewed by: Ashley B. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2014 We spent a week in this lovely condo which overlooks the pool and has ocean views. It was extremely clean, everything was very comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with plenty of tools, pans, etc. I would definitely stay here again. The location is excellent, very central to take day trips north, south or west. Very family friendly spot, more so than for couples looking for privacy, but we still had a great time. It's too bad the beach here isn't really good for swimming, at least not during our stay there. But the pool and hot tubs made it a fun time. The restaurant onsite is pretty fantastic, and the oceanfront setting was definitely the best we found anywhere on the island.
Reviewed by: Ron W. recommends this property. Stayed for 15 days in November, 2014 We had a great stay at Waipouli resort. Getting in was very easy as was checkout. The condo was beautiful, very well furnished and very well looked after. We had one small problem (a loose door handle) that was fixed without any bother. The people at the resort were all very helpful and easy to get along with. The only issue was the beach which was not user friendlly. However, the pool more than made up for that.

Reviewed by: Cindy W. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 The condo has antiquated TV's and no HDMI connection that would work. Cable box had to be reset twice during stay. Condo is lovely, but for this kind of money I expected more. Also A/C is on an override so you can never get the room cooler than 74. Not sure I'd stay in D312 again.
Reviewed by: Janine M. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2014 Overall excellent, pool lovely, good location for activities, grocery across street. My major complaint is that the air conditioning unit was so noisy when it was running, that we had to keep it off when we were in, and slept with the doors open. There were many parties going on in the pool because of Memorial Day and so a lot of noise coming in. Other than that it was very nice and my daughter and I enjoyed our stay.
A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in March, 2014 For first time visitors to Kauai,this was a great location and great resort. Convenient to many good restaurants, we particularly enjoyed Oasis, which is the restaurant right on the property. Excellent food and beautiful views. Also having the bike/walking path nearby that goes for over five miles was great fun.
Reviewed by: Linda J. recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in January, 2014 This is our 3rd visit to Waipouli Beach Resort and we would definitely return. We love the area, the proximity( feels like the center of the island, with only a short drive to either the north or south shores. The resort itself is great when not visiting other areas, the pool, the hottubs, the barbeques. We were also impressed with the many staples in the unit...spices, cooking oil, beach chairs, cooler boogie board. All the appliances are top of the line...highly recommend in fact we already have!!
Reviewed by: Carol S. recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in January, 2014 What a wonderful place to spend our vacation! We loved it! The condo suited us perfectly. Enjoyed relaxing on the lanai off the bedroom as well as poolside. No keys or keycards is a great feature. Beach mats provided were a nice discovery. Only thing I'll fuss about a little has already been mentioned by a previous renter and that's the shower's water pressure. One evening the Oasis restaurant had live music that we enjoyed from our room. Wow! The musician's were amazing! Our first morning (and others)we walked across the road to Starbucks then brought it back to the beach to watch the sunrise. Seeing God's handiwork displayed in such a beautiful way was a wonderful way to start our vacation. Walking along the path in to Kapa'a for breakfast and lunch is something else we liked to do. The concierge service provided was exceptional. We hope to return before too much time passes. This place was recommended by friends and we'll be passing our own review along.

If I had it to do all over again, I would definitely choose the same resort. Josh was incredible to work with and we will always request him at the time of booking.
Evan P. from Redondo Beach, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 Let me preface this by saying that it all ended fantastically and I had a unique circumstance that made this trip slightly worse.This trip was intended to be a last vacation before having our first child. When we arrived (Friday), to our dismay the unit had not been cleaned from the prior vacationers. The situation was quickly remeidated with a partial stay at the Waipouli resort until Monday, in which we would be able to move in. Now, what makes this worse, is that this trip was planned with my Friends in mind staying 4 houses down which now became a bigger issue to visit them (as we got placed 20 mins away).Also, because I was no longer with my Friends, I had to get a car rental which added to my trip costs.Once we got in, the unit was nice, had great views, and was clean and fully functional. It does get toasty, no AC, but there were quite a bit of fans in the unit to keep air moving.

Reviewed by: Jean W. recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in August, 2013 Overall the condo was great. I would say there are a few things that need maintenance. The blades in the clothes washer need to be replaced they are missing and the coffee table in living room needs bolts tightened. You could also add some light in the bedroom. As far as the check in we were a little taken back by the gentleman who come to the unit to check to see that it was ready at 2:40 and was surprised we were there already and was pretty rude about the fact that we were early. I don't think he needed to be rude about the fact that we were I guess 20 mins early. If that was a big deal then it needs to be stated in bold print that you can not enter the unit before 3. Thanks

They made promises they did not keep. Would not choose to deal with them in the future. While I would recommend the property I will not recommend the management company.
Property Manager Response: Response from Kauai Exclusive Management LLC Not true and unreasonable! Most people would notice that the reservation was the incorrect month before they sign it. Due to this guest error we were forced to move things around at the last minute, discount the stay and to deal with an unreasonable guest that is obviously not willing to admit that they were a very large part of this incident. The bait and switch story is simply not true as the 1st reservation that was in the wrong month was a 3rd floor and he was never looking at a top floor penthouse. We did then offer better views that were turned down even after discounting them due to our mutual error. Considering we have nearly 600 great reviews and 2 bad ones from this guests it is fair to say that we will get unreasonable guests from time to time and our goal will be to treat them with Aloha and do our best with hosting them.
