Reviewed by: Dayne C. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 We were blown away (initially) by the room when we walked in! Great views! The room was clean and well kept. It was just my wife and I staying there so it was a pretty big place for just the 2 of us. Will bring the kids with us next time!A few gripes:-WiFi wasn't as fast as we were expecting, but manageable.-The showers need some attention. Don't get me wrong, they are clean and definitely nice! But, the one leaks a lot of water onto the floor outside and SOAKS the floor mat or whatever you may have sitting there. And the other one the shower door seal is coming off, which will eventually cause a leak. My wife got on my case about the floor being wet outside the shower after showering after a night of drinking. I guess she thought I left the door open and showered? But then after HER shower the next day it happened again, and I said "see, told you, it wasn't me!"Very well stocked room, nice appliances and furniture. Would definitely stay in this room again!
A guest from dewiit, new york recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2016 Overall a great stay in a lovely property! Our only problems were with appliances that didn't reliably work, and the kitchen was short on cookware. We called to have 2 door knobs put back on the first day after they fell off, and Fred came right up to fix them.

Reviewed by: Judy I. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 Sherri booked us into our condo after our first booking site was terrible (not managed by Kauai Exclusive). If you look at the picture, our unit was the floor below. We spent 13 days looking at this view, enjoying the lanai, and listening to the waves each night. We had some very relaxing times just reading & eating on the lanai. We are seniors, but still enjoyed the pool and enjoyed the sounds of children laughing and playing in the pool. The jacuzzi below closed at 10:00 p.m so the area was quiet after that. There is visible security on the site. We had small issues (i.e. with lamps and remote controls). We could call the management 24/7. Our units (we had to move the last 3 nights to the unit below) were generally well equipped. We advised staff of a few shortages. I can't emphasize enough how helpful ALL the management company people were. They tried to accommodate us in any way they could. The concierge booked us into a wonderful family luau. If you want reservations at the restaurant on site, I would book them yourself. It saves confusion if you need to change them. The Beachhouse restaurant at Poipu is excellent and the Hukilani (sp?) Restaurant nearby is also very good. We would definitely return.

Reviewed by: Paul M. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2015 Overall very pleased with our stay! We rented H202 and H204 for my eight members of the family! H202 had a couple issues: master bath sink cold water faucet did not work and they were unable to repair; the lamp switch was broken and the clothes washer handle was broken off! Otherwise, the unit was well equipped and comfortable! A couple suggestions for improvement.....more light in the living room (maybe a light in the ceiling fan) and the bedroom window coverings need upgrading (the bedroom window covering was missing a screw and falling off the rail, so I "repaired" it with a screw I found in the closet!). Nice place and very convenient!
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2015 great place to stay with a beautiful view. Only bummer was the pool, no floats, no toys, no nothing except swim. Kids were disappointed. Places we have stayed that have a lazy river lets you take a floaty thru the river.
Donald P. from Glen Ridge, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015 Our family of four (two kids 13 and 10) absolutely loved this rental for the week we stayed. It's exactly like all the photos and the ocean breeze adds even more. Great location - centrally located on the island (although we did do a lot of driving with all the activities - 600 miles in 6 days!!!). We had every breakfast in the condo and even cooked one night (fish we caught on a deep sea fishing trip!) Fully stocked kitchen - everything you need. And the quality of the furnishings is high level (heavy doors, Wolf range, sub-zero frig, etc.). However, be careful on the corners of the beds - they jut out passed the mattress (hit our chins a couple times - ouch!) The resort was nice - very laid back when we were there - and the pool/hot tubs and the Oasis restaurant were the highlights. You can check out beach towels by the pool and it was nice not to have a key to anything (it's all done by codes, including condo). We also washed clothes every night, so that was convenient to have in the condo). The beach isn't much - as others have said - and we never swam in the ocean there. But there are obviously tons of other beaches on the island (Tunnels Beach for snorkeling being our favorite). You can walk to the grocery store (we favored Safeway over Foodland - both are across the street next to a Starbucks!) and snorkel rental is just down the street (Bob's). We took a helicopter ride (Blue Hawaiian - the best!); a snorkel cruise around Napali (would definitely recommend Napali Experience - smaller boats got in the caves, and it was the highlight of our trip); zipline (Koloa Zipline was great!) and deep sea fishing (Lehale fit the bill perfectly). We would definitely recommend this condo - wish we were still there!
A guest from Upland, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2015 Loved staying at the Waipouli Beach Resort. Our room had a great view. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, the grounds were beautiful and a good restaurant. Will stay here again when we return to Kauai
Reviewed by: Deborah C. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 Our adult daughter and we really enjoyed our location and the property overall. It is confusing, and in our case a bit disappointing, that the King bed is in the guest room and the Queen in the master suite. Our daughter got the benefit of the larger deck. We did have some maintenance issues that took several attempts to get resolved, and some will require more work (washer door) and leaking shower door, but the staff attempted to respond quickly and completely. GREAT location and the pool and restaurant were good and accessible.

Reviewed by: Jeff B. recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in December, 2014 Exactly as advertised. Had a 2 bed 3 bath unit on 2nd floor. Clean, well appointed. Kitchen was great, had everything we needed. Stove top was bit tricky but worked great. Laundry in was a great bonus as well. Best of all, no one ever bothered us. It was like we owned the unit for 2 weeks. Kapaa is a great location. You need a car to see all of Kauai, but that is true anywhere. Once Christmas hits, it is very kid centric. Before Christmas it was quite relaxing. Lot's of kids isn't a bad thing, just be prepared. If you have have kids 16 and under, you won't have to worry. Safe and clean and they can be entertained on property for quite a while. We would do it again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Kauai Exclusive Management LLC This guest was obviously very happy if you read their review. This was a mistake and is not fixable on our end as they gave us low scores thinking that we were # 1! We appreciate the kind words and thank you for being our guest!
Reviewed by: Debra R. recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2014 This Waipouli condo was spectacular! We have stayed at Waipouli six other times since opening (2005?) and this was by far the one with the best ocean view -sounds, sites, even the aroma of 'ocean spray!' Just wish you had one so close in a one bedroom. This was an 'unusual' trip for us. We come annually from AK, but had my 83 yr old mom and sister come from the mainland this time. Would also like to thank you for the 'prompt' response to the couple of problems we encountered. Shawn was great bringing us a new coffee maker and getting the door to the 'too tight' frig door. And there was one other thing, but I can't remember so you must have fixed it! Anyway, it was nice to be 'taken care of.' We also appreciated both the Hawaiian and Alaska native artwork in this condo. Everywhere you looked it was something to really 'take in' and enjoy. As 20-year Alaskans, we could tell the owners were, too. The best part of the condo were the mattresses - some owners are not replacing even after 10 years and yours were not uncomfortable and lumpy like the last one we were in. Mucho Mahalo!

Reviewed by: Brian G. recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in August, 2014 Exactly as described. A great Condo/resort. Our 2 children (Ages 6 and 8) had a blast in the pool. The only issue I had was the fact that the Condo did not have some type of black out shades over the sliding doors and windows. There are shades, but they let in too much light for me in the mornings. Not that big of a deal unless you enjoy sleeping in...The Condo was very clean, with modern appliances. We will definitely consider staying here on our next trip to Kauai!
Reviewed by: Laura J. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 We always rent a house in Hanalei when visiting Kauai...this was the first condo rental. We were skeptical, at best. What a wonderful surprise to enter the immaculate, and newly renovated unit that we would call home for the week. It had everything that we could ask for. Very little in the way of household goods needed to be purchased at the store. TP, Paper towels, soaps, laundry soaps, etc. were all provided. The decor was a fun Hawaiiana, the bed was extremely comfortable, as were the pillows and all of the linens. Someone has done their homework here and made this a very well stocked vacation rental. The drive to our beloved Hanalei was not too long, and we were able to enjoy the countryside while making the daily drives. The grounds of this complex are gorgeous and extremely well cared for. The beach front is beautiful....the Oasis restaurant offers decent meals at affordable prices. A good full stocked bar also.

Reviewed by: Judy S. recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in August, 2013 WE WENT TO KAUAI FOR OUR DAUGHTERS WEDDING & A FAMILY VACATIION. THE FAMILY CHOSE THIS RESORT BECAUSE OF ITS LOCATION, UNIT AMENITIES & THE POOL,WHICH WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST WE HAVE EVER ENJOYED. UNIT H202 OFFERED GREAT VIEWS OF THE OCEAN & POOL WHERE WE COULD WATCH OUR GRANDCHILDREN. SHORTLY AFTER ARRIVAL, WE HAD TROUBLE WITH THE STOVE TOP. THE BURNERS KEPT SHUTTING OFF & THEN STOPPED WORKING COMPLETELY. WE CALLED KAUAI EXCL. MGMT & SOMEONE DID COME OUT & SAID A REPLACEMENT STOVE TOP WAS ON ORDER. AFTER NOT HEARING ANYTHING FROM KEM FOR 5 DAYS, WE CALLED AGAIN FOR AN UPDATE. THEY GACE US A $150 VOUCHER FOR THE ONSITE RESTAURANT,NOT A LOT FOR 4 PEOPLE & NOT OPEN FOR BREAKFAST. KEM CALLED ON THE LAST DAY TO SAY THEY HAD A REPLACEMENT TOP & WANTED IT INSTALLED THAT DAY. NO ONE SHOWED UP & WE CHECKED OUT WITH THE STOVE STILL INOPERABLE. IN THE END, WE GAVE AWAY GROCERIES WE COULDN'T USE OR THREW THEM AWAY. THERE ARE ONLY 4 BBQ'S ON THE RESORT, BBQ'S ARE GREAT FOR COOKING MEAT BUT YOU STILL NEED THE STOVE FOR EVERYTHING ELSE. IT DEFEATS THE PURPOSE OF RENTING A FULL SERVICE UNIT WHEN THE STOVE STOPS WORKING & YOU ARE FORCED TO EAT OUT, WHICH IS QUITE EXPENSIVE IN KAPAA. THE SOLUTION KEM OFFERED TO USE THE STOVE IN ANOTHER UNIT FOR COOKING WAS NOT REALLY PRACTICAL. THIS WAS AN EXPENSIVE UNIT TO RENT & WHEN WE ASKED ABOUT A REBATE ON THE DAILY RENTAL AS COMPENSATION FOR NOT HAVING USE OF THE STOVE, KEM WAS NOT OVERLY RECEPTIVE TO THE IDEA BUT DID SAY THEY WOULD CONTACT THE OWNER OF THE UNIT TO DISCUSS THE MATTER. WE HAVE BEEN HOME FOR MORE THAN A WEEK NOW & HAVE STILL NOT HEARD BACK FROM KEM. IT WAS A GREAT WEDDING & FAMILY VACATION BUT, WE THINK KEM COULD HAVE BEEN MORE RESPONSIVE TO OUR SITUATION. AT THIS POINT, WE CANNOT RECOMMEND KEM TO FRIENDS OR FAMILY MEMBERS THINKING OF A VACATION IN KAUAI. WE WOULD RECOMMEND THE RESORT BECUASE OF LOCATION & THE POOL, KEM IS NOT THE ONLY RENTAL AGENCY YOU CAN DEAL WITH.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in August, 2013 THE GOOD(1) The resort is beautiful. A great deal of effort goes into maintaining the grounds, & it shows. (2) The pool is awesome, especially for kids. (3) Kapa'a is probably the best place on Kauai from which to explore the whole island. It was a huge convenience being across the street from a major shopping complex. (4) H202 is very nicely furnished. It has a full working kitchen with lots of cookware and great appliances, as well as a washer & dryer. Also, we had a great view of the beach/ocean from our lanai & we ate most of our stay-in meals (except when it was raining) on the lanai. (5) Staff were generally friendly & helpful.THE BAD(1) Unit cleanliness upon arrival. The fridge/freezer hadn't been cleaned thoroughly. We found peanuts under the bed in one bedroom, and candy wrappers and a soiled toddler outfit (!) behind the bed in the other bedroom. (2) There were three phones in our unit and they never all worked at the same time. (3) Before our arrival I asked Kauai Exclusive Mgmt if there were beach toys and/or snorkel gear in the unit, to which the response was no. There was tons of snorkel gear in one of the guest bedroom closets (we brought our own, unnecessarily). I also asked for the ph # in H202 & they gave us the wrong # so for the entire stay whenever family tried to call us they got a "not in service" message. It was only after we left Kauai that we discovered the # we were given was wrong. (4) The rubber seal under one of the showers didn't work, which left the bathmat & tile floor soaked every time we used the shower. (5) The pool staff can be a bit militant about kids using toys in the pool area. We had some diving toys (for my daughter) that fit in my swimsuit pocket. When one of the pool staff saw them, she said we weren't allowed to use them. We had been using them for days up to that point, but she wouldn't budge.On the whole, a really nice place to stay especially for families with kids. We would stay there again,

The dishwashers are in very poor shape, the lighting is lacking, the dishes are a mongrel mix, the coffee maker so low cost it doesn't have an auto turnoff, etc. We were charged three hundred dollars dot three mid week cleanings, and there was little evidence any cleaning was really done.

Beautiful Condo and Resort, but disappointed with location
A guest from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 The resort is beautiful, but the surrounding area has very few swimmable beaches or nice restaurants. We did not like the menu of the Oasis Restaurant on the property. We would rather have been in Poipu, drove there 3 of the 6 days...spent more time in the car than we wanted. We wished we could walk out the door with our beach chairs and head to the beach to swim, play and snorkle for the day...but it was not possible. I only have positive things to say about the resort itself...gorgeous, clean, top of the line decor and kitchen. We wish we could place it on a beach in Poipu!
Reviewed by: Rob T. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 H202 contributed to a great stay.Would have been helpful to know in advance that the unit had snorkel gear as we brought our own, but overall a very nice unit. Pool and ocean views were great. Brita water filter was a nice touch as well. Central location of complex is great for overall isalnd enjoyment as well. Would definately recommend this unit in particular.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2011 We enjoyed our stay at Waipouli. The beach is soso and kind of rough for small children, but many beaches in Kauai are, and I think you would be hard pressed to find a resort in a bay with a beach that is protected from the winds. Waipouli was so conveniently located that you could drive to any of the famous family beaches in minutes. The resort was clean and nicely manicured. We would go back, and I highly recommend this resort. Oh, and if you shop for groceries, avoid Safeway and Foodland across the street, venture out toward Kapaa about 1 mile from the resort to Cost U Less, it really does cost you less and has a much better selection of fresh produce. Finally, the restaurant on-site, I think it was called Oasis, is really good. It was always so empty so we avoided it until the last day, and came in at happy hour. We were pleasantly surprised by the tapas and happy hour prices. Enjoy your trip!

Reviewed by: Janice H. recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in December, 2010 We just returned from our Christmas in Hawaii vacation and can't stop telling everyone what an amazing resort the Waipouli was. From the breathtaking views, fabulous pool, beach and the perfect H202 unit, it was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had as a family. Our chidlren ages 9 and 12 tld us they wished they didn't have to go home and asked if they could move there. If anyone reading this is looking for a perfect place to vacation, this is the place to go, for families, couples, retired etc. You will not be disappointed.
A guest from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2010 THis is a beautiful well run property perfect for honeymooners or families with kids. Location of H202 is perfect, private with a great view.
Ken J. from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in October, 2010 Waipouli is a beautiful resort and we really enjoyed our stay. The unit is very nicely appointed and is a great ocean front location. We were able to leave our lanai doors open all nite and sleep to the sounds of the surf. On arrival it was very apparent that the housekeeping hadnt been properly done or completed. Supplies were missing etc.Josh was very responsive to addressing our concerns. He was a wonderful host and loaned us folding beach chairs so we could comfortably spend time at other beaches on the island. Mahalo!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Kauai Exclusive Management LLC A true management and cleaner mishap and truly chalked up as a learning experience! We compensated the guest and resolved the issue on day #1. Though the room was clean there had not been a IN cleaning of the windows or amenities delivered. H202 is a very special room though a few of the furniture pieces have hit their 4 year life span.. These items have been replaced. I LOVE THIS ROOM! Aloha Joshua
A guest from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2010 This IS the place to stay on Kauai; centrally located near all amenities. Our best day was: Get up in the morning, sit out on the lanai and enjoy the ocean front view and eastern tradewinds that kept us cool all the time. We then walked 20 steps to a semi-secluded beach; spent an hour there and watched as a monk seal joined us nearby for a little R&R. Then a few more steps to the incredible pool, followed by a few steps to the wonderful OASIS, where we had a superb lunch.Vacations just don't get better than this!
Jeff & Erin B. from na, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2009 We absolutely loved this place - our unit overlooked the ocean, bar, and pool. In the evenings you could sit out on the lanai and listen to local artists singing at the bar. I would definitely recommend staying here. :)
A guest from NA, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2009 Josh checked in with us the morning after we arrived, which was a nice touch. The H202 condo was a great place to stay with many great comforts and a great facility and location. The only constructive comments I have are:1) One of the sets of folding blinds in the living room area was defective when we arrived. (Already discussed with Josh and I understand that model are to all be replaced.)2) Spent about a half hour trying to connect to "Waipouli Beach Resort" wireless network, without success. Laptop would actually connect to that network, but would never get an IP address, DNS settings, etc. But was ultimately successful connecting the wireless network named "ResNet" or something like that. I suggest that the welcome sheets indicate what wireless network to use to save some aggravation for other guests.3)Lighting was suboptimal. One of the floor lamps in the living room area didn't work, or at least we couldn't figure out how to make it work. In general the interior lighting was somewhat dim and limited - would suggest some brighter bulbs in a few spots.4) Middle front burner on the range top didn't seem to work. We were able to use the other burners for our needs. It might have just been us, but this is something that should be checked out.None of these issues impacted our enjoyment of our stay at WBR. We had a great time and just mention this for future improvements.
Suzanne G. from NA, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2009 Our stay in H202 was better than anticipated. I loved the location and view of the ocean. We had a wonderful time and our next visit can not happen soon enough! Josh was very helpful and professional - loved PoPo's cookies.The Waipouli Resort is lovely and the location is perfect.Suzy
Property Manager Response: Response from Kauai Exclusive Management LLC We are #1 for this renter! Unfortunately they meant to give us a 5!! I have tried to have TA resolve this with no success.
Doug T. from NA, NA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2009 This is a great unit. The Room location looks over the pool and has a great view of the ocean from the rooms and lanai. The place was clean and well appointed with everything we needed to cook. We have a 1 year old and the lanais are infant friendly and safe. Josh, was very friendly, easy to work with, available and accommodating. The pool and bar were great fun. The only complaint we had was the noise from the bar was a little loud a couple nights and this was over by 10pm... for most people this wouldn't be a problem but with an infant going to bed at 8-9 it was a minor inconvenience. All in all... really a perfect place. Thanks for the great stay.
Mark K. from SanFransico, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2009 Overall, we had a great stay at Waipouli H202. While the beach isn't really swimmable (though my son might disagree), the pool was great and rarely crowded. Also, the proximity to shops and restaurants was great as was the ease of getting to either the north shore or the south shore (we traveled 3 times to each shore -- about 30-45 minutes depending on where you're going).One thing about the accommodations -- despite what the listing says, only one bedroom has a king bed; the other is a queen (+ a queen pull-out sofa).
