The unit is extremely well equipped and spacious. It was very convenient to have a fully stocked kitchen, linens and toiletries, and laundry. The resort is nicely maintained and modern. The pool and hot tub were fun for both adults and kids. We did not use the outdoor grills, but others did and they were always cleaned nicely.
The beach at the resort was nice. The ocean was okay for kids to wade in and adults to swim, without the huge waves you may get elsewhere. It is possible to walk out several hundred yards before you approached the reef. There was not a lot of marine life, but it was still fun to snorkel and free swim. (Owners left plenty of gear to use.)
Pack just a minimum of clothing and necessities if you are selecting this unit. Stop at Costco and go the farmer's markets to get food and necessities. Safeway is literally right across the street if you need other groceries or personal items. It is also a pretty short drive to get to restaurants if you want to eat out or go to other stores in Lihue. Travel light, get what you need when you get there, and enjoy a very relaxing stay like we did. You will not regret it!
Property lived up to the reviews. The location was perfect—central and convenient to restaurants, stores and activities. The unit was well maintained with a lovely view. It has all the amenities and owner was very responsive at every step. This is perfect for families who need a kitchen and a little more room. It is right on the beach and has a terrific pool.
This was one of the most relaxing trips to the island that we have ever experienced. We have done most of the "touristy" things on previous trips, so other than a few short excursions back to our favorites, we spent our time in the fantastic pool, at the very nearby beach, and in the luxurious home at this property. The kitchen had everything we needed to make and eat most of our meals in the condo. The main lanai lends itself well to relaxing with family while taking in the views during a meal - night or day. We were so laid-back by the end of the trip that it was extremely difficult to make that short trip back to the airport!
Loved it all. Wonderful unit beautiful view. Loved it all

The property was wonderful! Everything was exactly as it was described. We had a wonderful time and we would highly recommend others to stay at this condo.
The condo was very nice and the pool was great with the slides! Greg was great at communicating! Would definitely recommend 😀
We had a wonderful experience in F404 from beginning to end. Greg was incredibly responsive and helpful - gave great advice on activities and lots of necessary details. Also, the unit was beautiful in so many ways. Great view of the pool, gardens, and ocean. Fully outfitted with kitchen supplies, cooler, beach gear, etc. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of comfy linens and towels. I didn’t hear any complaints from our 17, 16, or 11 year olds. The facility as a whole was very comfortable as well. Every employee I encountered was lovely. We spent lots of time relaxing by the beautiful river-like pool and also went over to take dips in the ocean. We rented bikes (look up Biking in Paradise - they are phenomenal!) and explored the seven miles north of the resort - absolutely beautiful ride along the ocean, like stunningly beautiful! We also explored south of the resort on foot and by bike - trails led to cute shops, restaurants, and other resorts. We had drinks at the Lava Lava Club and also found a little spot that has great fish tacos called the Sleeping Giant Grill. As far as activities / there are lots of hiking spots nearby (we conquered the Sleeping Giant, actually!). It was also very worth it to venture out to Hanalei Bay to the north, Poipu to the south, and Waimea Canyon on the west side of the island. We explored caves at the Napali Coast using Capt Andy’s- and we had a great experience with them snorkeling and speeding along the coast taking in awesome views. Overall, we had an excellent time and the comfort of Greg’s place played a huge, huge part in that. I couldn’t recommend them enough.
My husband and I came to Kauai for a short 5 days to visit friends on the island. The unit was great, well appointed and very comfortable. The pool facilities were fantastic, with 2 water slides, 3 sand bottom hot tubs and four waterfalls. The Oasic restaurant was right on the beach, with gorgeous views and delicious food. Great location as well.
We love staying in Kapaa; it’s central to everything we like to do in Kauai. This condo was perfect for two couples. Very clean, comfortable and well-appointed.
Greg was great to work with.
Nice, spacious condo with amazing views of sunrise and pool. Fit 4 adults and two kids comfortably. Would recommend. Note there is construction at the hotel that can be heard and seen from balcony August 2022.
Condo was spacious. Resort grounds and pool were very nice. Children will love the pool. Adults will love the peacefulness of the beach.
We had a fantastic time - the condo was comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, and the pool was a huge hit!
We enjoyed our stay. The property is just as described. The rooms are clean and well kept. Communication with Greg was very easy. Oh, don't forget to read the guest books -- it'll make you smile.
A great condo unit for our family of five. Short drives to some local restaurants as well as easy to get to other parts of the island. Our kids loved the pool but were disappointed with some of the rules, like not allowing to throw pool balls.
Great property to stay at. Unit was clean and just as described. So many amenities and extras like coolers, boogie boards etc to take advantage of. Owner was so easy to communicate with and we would recommend this property and unit highly.
We had a wonderful 5 day stay at this condo on the eastern shore of Kauai. Multi-generational group. Accommodations were spacious and very well furnished. Owner was great communicator. Highly recommend!
We enjoyed our stay and all the amenities. Beautiful setting. Greg was pleasant to work with and helpful.
This property was wonderful for our family’s stay in Kaui. The location made it easy to visit both the north & south coasts of the island as well as providing ease to many delicious restaurants. Thanks to the owners for providing all the essentials.
Even though it is less than a block from Safeway and McDonalds (very convenient) the property is situated in such a way that the feel isn't dramatically different than any other resort on the island.
If I could give this place 6 stars I would. This condo is equipped with everything you could possibly need. We have stayed in many VRBO's and own a couple ourselves. We are traveling with small children and found swim diapers, sand toys, DVD's and more to entertan. The kitchen is spotless, and well stocked, I was impressed with the quality of the kitchen supples, they provide quality cutting knives that are sharp. The grounds are well kept and the condo is in a GREAT location. My family loved the Pool, water slides, "beach Pool" with real sand and my husband and daughter loved the 7 mile walking path along the ocean that starts very close to this property. We will definitely be returning.
We loved the ocean and pool view from this spacious penthouse condo! The room had everything imaginable that you could ever need including a pack and play which was priceless as we had a two year old and a three month old with us. The owners were very helpful with detailed and easy check-in and pool and gym access information. The on-site restaurant/lounge Oasis had amazing food and cocktails and the most warm and friendly staff. We can’t say enough about how great this amazing top floor room was and the resort in general. If we visit Kauai again we definitely will be coming back to this resort and this specific room!

We enjoyed our stay at Greg’s property #404F. The condo is as described and many extra items were available for us to use - coffee, sunscreen, beach chairs, paper towels, etc. We appreciated the complementary chocolates, wine and cookies - thank you so much! Communication with Greg and the housekeeper is flawless and efficient. The condo is clean and comfortable and the grounds are extremely well kept. We had a great time and would return. Mahalo!
What a fantastic place to stay
I highly recommend it
The condo is beautiful
The pool is breathtaking
The ocean is mesmerizing
Every day is paradise
Very nice accommodations and easy access to both sides of the Island. Relaxing, quiet (didn't hear the roosters unless doors were open) This was our first VRBO experience and it was great! Thank you Greg and Jennifer
The condominium was as advertised and wonderful. We appreciated all the insider tips and the amenities at the resort. Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation!!
The condo perfectly met our needs. It had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The resort property is absolutely beautiful. The pool has 2 slides and a lazy river. Greg, our host, was very helpful and responsive to any questions we had. We highly recommend staying here.
Condo was very clean and stocked with everything you need. Great location for proximity to restaurants, beaches and sightseeing.
Perfect for Kids Vacation- Room F-404
I will be conducting this review through two lenses. Keep in mind as a parent/husband and as a Regional Manager of Hotel Operations.
Stay- 8 Nights in October 2021
The owners of this room know hospitality. They emailed us all the information needed plus more to help navigate the island and make our stay much more enjoyable.
The amenities in the room were much better than expected. They have everything you would want/need plus more. Make sure you don't go to the store before you arrive to your room. Most likely, the room will have items that you were thinking of purchasing.
The view from the room is perfect for watching over your kids as they swim in the pool. We decided to take the second bedroom instead of the Master, because the balcony off of the room had a table with four chairs. It was ideal for us to get away from the kids and relax by ourselves while they hung out in the rest of the room. My wife and I spent every morning with a cup of coffee, an avocado and papaya.
We have three boys, the room is large enough for the boys to do their own thing. There are three bathrooms in the suite, so it made it very easy for everyone to have their own place to setup their personal belongings. The washer and dryer were wonderful to have, however the dryer tends to be fairly slow at drying clothes. The HVAC system in the room is setup perfectly and not really any need to make adjustments. Make sure to keep all the balcony doors shut otherwise the A/C turns off.
Cleanliness is the most important area that I look at when I travel and on the job. The housekeeper who cleans this room is outstanding. She is very detailed and she knows how to do her job very well. I can't say enough of what a great job she does.
The room looks great, you wouldn't know that this room was 16 years old. The room has been kept in good shape. I will say that the shower doors are in need to be re-caulked and sealed. They do a great job at maintaining the Suite.
We could not be happier with the location. It is centrally located to get to the North and South shore. Traffic gets a little bit busy going south, but that is mostly due to construction being done on the highway. Every morning, we would walk down to the beach and catch the sunrise. There are lounge chairs setup for us on the beach. The Sunrise is simply amazing. There is great shopping near by and local coffee houses as well.
Property was beautiful! Would definitely stay here again!
Everything was wonderful. They had everything you could want!!
Would give them a 100!!
This is a great property. The manager/owner was fantastic. The condo came equipped with everything we needed to play at the beach and snorkel. Wonderful linens and comfortable mattresses. Little extras throughout the home. We would stay here again if available.
We loved our stay here , great views , spotless and great communication with Greg ,would definitely stay here on a return visit to kaui. The location is wonderful market across the street as well as restaurants ,we went off site for dinners some of our best meals!The condo is so well equited it’s hard to leave but once outside fantastic, would highly recommended staying here on trip to kaui.
John Gregory T.
This property delivers immediately when you open the door and see both the pool and the ocean. Great views. The place is crisp, clean and the wood appointments particularly nice. Groceries available across the street. A short drive to most attractions. Highly recommended.
This is the cleanest place we have ever stayed. And the entire condo was well appointed and had nice furniture and dishes etc. Loved the location, too! And Greg was extremely helpful and responsive. Would definitely recommend this rental for a wonderful, relaxing stay on Kauai!
Loved it. Pool with slide was a hit with granddaughter. Great location.
Beautiful property … will definitely stay again!
Greg's description of the property was spot on. The condo was perfect and was in a great location. Gorgeous sunrises from the balcony. The location of the resort was well located to access the entire island with ease. Greg did a great job communicating in advance and answering our questions in a timely manner. Overall a great experience and I would highly recommend this property. Hopefully we will be back soon
The condo was fantastic. They had all the amenities you needed in the kitchen and for the beach. Also the kitchen was stocked with spices and some staples so you don’t have to buy everything. Clean with plenty of living space and an incredible view. Host was great and easy to tcommunicate with.
This was a fantastic condo in a great location. The kitchen was stocked better than most homes. We really appreciated all of the chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling equipment, and pool equipment that was available for use.
The property manager was communicative and answered all of our questions in the three months leading up to check in. We really appreciated the quick communication and accommodation to allow us to drop off our luggage and food prior to check in.
The resort was great as well. I enjoyed using the fitness center and the kids loved the pool. We also ate dinner in the restaurant.
We would definitely return to this condo in the future.
Beautiful home, well equipped. Luxury for sure, yet it still felt like home. The three lanais look out over the pool and the ocean. You can do sunrise at the beach or from your bed! Spacious and the vaulted ceilings add to the open feel. Perfect location to venture to all parts of the island. Oasis re-opened on our last night and we got dinner to go - ate poolside. It didn't disappoint. Great staff, big portions, tasty food. Even better than before! Other best eats include Lava Lava Beach Club, Rainbeau Jo's, Leong's Meat House, and Aloha Aina for acai bowls. Saturday Farmers Market in Puhi for fruits and veggies and get the poi bowl from Hanalei Taro! We loved staying here. Greg was communicative and responsive and the condo may have been the cleanest place I have ever stayed. Overall an excellent experience.
The property is amazing and Greg is awesome! Soft, plushy bath towels, thoughtful details, everything you need, prompt and detailed communication from Greg.
Very upscale accomodations. The owners thought of everything. We really appreciated the beach chairs and umbrella. But best of all were the super comfortable beds and pillows. Great view of the pool and ocean. Would definitely stay there again or recommend to friends.
Todd & Stefani C.
Greg has a spectacular piece of paradise. The unit is beautifully done and the views of pool and ocean are amazing. Their is equipment for every island activity and the location on Kauai is central to all those activities. The grounds are tropical and lush and perfect for relaxing at home. We loved this place!! Thank you Greg.
Fantastic stay! We had everything we could need and so much more in the condo. Resort and pool were perfect! Great sunrise and breakfast at Oasis. We were lucky to see a few seals on the beach, which was awesome. Beds were super comfy and we made several meals and grilled out. So many great restaurants nearby made it hard to want to stay in and cook! Staff at the resort were super friendly and knowledgeable of the area, things to do, where to eat and shop. Great location as it was a short drive to Poipu and the south shore as well as Hanalei and the North Shore. Almost seemed like a hidden secret location to stay as you aren't in the middle of a full resort area, you really got the native feel of being on the island and meeting the locals. We absolutely love it and had a great time!!
This was my 18 yr old granddaughters 1st time visiting Kauai with me and my two sisters. We loved showing beautiful Kauai to her and it doesn't get any better than once again staying in this gorgeous condo. The owner Greg was very gracious and provided everything we needed to complete this wonderful vacation from the beach chairs water shoes and snorkel gear in the closet to the immaculate spacious surroundings of this unit. For our relaxing down time we enjoyed the large flat screen tv's in the bedrooms and the 3D in the living room! I took a lot of pictures of unit F404 and plan on sharing them with my co-workers so they too can enjoy Paradise in 1st class style. I cannot wait until my next trip and hopefully soon. Aloha
We enjoyed the condo so much! Great layout and very comfortable! Had issues with the property grills and air conditioning in the unit, but otherwise all was good. Great for two couples with both bedrooms having king beds. Would recommend to others!
This is a beautiful unit in a beautiful resort. Nice little owner-furnished add-ons that made the visit more pleasant.
We were 2 couples from Oregon and Pennsylvania meeting in Kauai to celebrate birthdays and retirement. We picked the right place to do it. Everything at the condo was exactly as stated. The only snafu we had was upon arrival when we kept overlooking the # as part of the code to enter the unit. Greg was very gracious and helpful even though it was simply our user error. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
I can't say enough great things about this condo! It was FULLY STOCKED--Everything you could need down to a rice cooker in the pantry! It was super clean, and very well-kept. The 2 king beds were perfect, and very comfortable. You have a nice (partial) ocean view/pool view from the living room, but the patio view (where you can sit outside) is a bit blocked in terms of view by the palm trees. Still, it's great to sit outside in the mornings and drink your coffee/eat breakfast while you listen to the ocean waves roll in.
The bedroom closet is STOCKED with everything you could need to enjoy your days on the beach. Beach chairs, TONS of snorkel gear, coolers, boogey boards, you name it they have it! I also noticed (if you're traveling with kids), it looked to have a high chair and pack and play in the closet as well. The kitchen has tons of pots and pans, bakeware and tupperware which makes it super convenient to cook-in. We enjoyed making breakfast in the condo and then eating out for the majority of the meals. There are three large grills on the property near the pool which are cleaned daily--a great place to grill out if you're into that.
Great location on the island, as you have easy access to Princeville or Poipu since you're smack dab in the middle. Lots to do nearby the condo as well, with tons of local shops and restaurants just up the road.
We got so spoiled at this condo in Kauai, that our new condo in Maui doesn't even come close! You will be so spoiled by the time your trip is over, you won't want to leave!! We will definitely be back--5 stars ALL THE WAY!!
Greg has taken the time to provide you with everything you need to explore the island. Whether your going hiking or to any of the beaches you have everything you need. Snorkels, fins, masks, boogie boards, ice chests, umbrellas. The pool area is great If you just want to hang out at the complex. The restaurant out front has decent food and drinks.
We rented this beautiful penthouse for (9) days. The place was immaculately clean and matched the pictures and notes in the rental add. Great view of the ocean and pool and close to all shopping as well as being located in the between the north and the south. This place had it all! Greg was outstanding in his preparation of our arrival and our stay went smooth and problem free. I will definitely recommend this place to all my friends traveling to Kauai in the future and I will definitely seek out this property when I return to Kauai. Thank you Greg for making our stay on your property a memorable one!
This is one of the most beautifully decorated and maintained condos that I have ever rented. The owners clearly take great pride in their home. They are also good hosts with a closet well stocked with beach toys, coolers and beach chairs. The owners have provided everything you need to explore the island.
The property is very pretty and well maintained. The pool is spectacular and if our kids were younger we might not have been allowed to leave it. The on sight restaurant, Oasis, is ok on the food side but great for drinks and with a jaw dropping view.
The only issue to be aware of is that the condo sits back from the beach. That means the view is more of the pool than the ocean (and it is a beautiful pool) and if you want to go to sleep to the sound of waves this might not be the perfect unit for you. While we were in Kauai it was too hot to leave the windows and doors open, and rather than listen to waves we were very appreciative of the excellent air conditioning!
Was everything promised, villa was really nice and the 3D T.V. made every evening exciting, we couldn't wait to watch a new 3D movie each night! The location is perfect for exploring the entire island! Stores and restaurants are within walking distance and so many to choose from!
When we walked into the unit we all let out a "wow" - beautiful large unit with great view of pool and the ocean. Complete gourmet kitchen, high end, with everything you could possibly need to make a meal. Spotless. Comfortable beds and pullout couch, our family is now six adults and it was plenty of space and we were all comfortable. Loved that the living room sliders opened up all the way - so it felt as though you were outside. The balcony/terrace was great for eating and we loved that the palm tree in front of it gave us shade and privacy. Also - unit is full equipped with water toys - snorkels, boogie boards, chairs, noodles! Owner was fabulous, very detailed and worked in accommodating a late check out request. For those who have never been to Kauai - this resort is centrally located great for site seeing to north or south - additionally lots of shops, restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance. Restaurant on resort is right on beach and food was good. Finally, resort has chairs on beach that you don't have to pay for! Pool is great and we had no problem finding chairs anytime we went down to pool. Overall highly recommend!
Penthouse F404 is a GEM!! In preparing to attend a wedding in Kauai, I did extensive research on VRBO and was attracted to Waipouli Beach Unit F404 because of its amenities, location and reviews. The owner, Greg, was very responsive, available and facilitated an easy rental process through HomeAway.
Since the wedding was being held on Tunnels Beach (northern part of the island), it was an easy drive from Waipouli Beach which is a much drier part of the island. From the moment, we opened the door to F-404, we felt at home. The unit is exquisitely decorated, and all amenities are upscale. Modern kitchen is well equipped. Two lovely master bedrooms are large and complimented by spacious bathrooms. Beds were divinely comfortable. There are balconies off each bedroom and the living area. The view of the swimming pool below and ocean are spectacular. Local relatives informed us that Waipouli Beach in Kappa is one of the more luxurious properties on the island. Guests loved the pool with lazy river and extensive slides. Also, the restaurant on the property, Oasis on the Beach, was convenient; and the wedding party enjoyed happy hour and dinner there. Food and service were excellent!
We very much enjoyed the location of Waipouli Beach since it is centrally located and an easy drive from the Lihue Airport or to the north (Princeville) or south (Poipu). We enjoyed snorkeling at Tunnels Beach, the beautiful drive to Waimea Canyon, and helicopter ride over the beautiful island of Kauai, truly paradise. Kauai is a favorite island, and there is a plethora of activities to meet everyone's interests. We highly recommend the gated Waipouli Beach property and Penthouse F404 to which we shall return!
This entire resort was gorgeous, but our condo was so beautiful. Better then we could've ever imagined! Everything from the linens to the comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, excellent view, to the gorgeous would and granite countertops. Everything was literally perfect! Would stay there a million times over! Can't wait to come back!
The descriptions for this condo do not exaggerate at all. We had been given perfect instructions on where best to park, how to locate the condo and how to get in the condo prior to arriving. A quick 10-15 minute drive from the airport and we were inside unpacking and heading to the pool. A perfect start after a long day of travel.
Since we rented almost one year in advance the communication was perfect. We received updates on the status of the reservation and downloaded the HomeAway app which was a great companion since it had all of the information we needed at the tips of our fingers.
The condo was very clean and the property staff very friendly. The appliances in the condo are very nice high-end that my wife wants to get for home.
Kapaa is the perfect location when staying on the island and the condo was walking distance to FoodLand, Safeway and Papayas Natural Foods. If you can't be without a Starbucks there is one across the street in the shopping center.
We drove 20 miles to Koloa ZipLines, 10 miles for Back Country Adventures tubing and 15 miles to the Airport for a doors off helicopter tour from Mauna Loa. All perfect activities and would do them again.
One morning we drove to the north shore and snorkeled at Tunnel's Beach where we swam with sea turtles. We also saw Monk Seals on the properties beach.
We have already started to save our pennies so we can return soon.
Thank you Greg and Jennifer for sharing your beautiful condo. My husband, two toddlers and brother stayed here November of 2013 for a week. We had such an amazing time and felt like we were at home. The condo has everything you need. Kauai is our favorite Island to visit. We'll definitely be contacting Greg when we plan for our next trip back. Thank you again for sharing you're "home away from home".
My husband and I just recently returned from a week stay at the Waipouli Beach Resort with our 3 high school aged children. We had a fabulous time!! It is hard to find a place that can accommodate a range of tastes and activity levels and this resort did it for us. The feel at the pool/beach/restaurant is more of a full resort with the luxury of leaving and going to your upscale condo instead of a small hotel room. There was quite a range of ages this time of year, from grandparents to babies and my family felt right at home. The unit was well appointed, clean, had spectacular views and had obvious hands-on owners who care about their investment and hope you enjoy your stay.
The staff at the concierge desk was very helpful finding day excursions and making all our reservations for us. As this was our first stay on the island, however much research I did, the concierge staff knew their business and made that part of our vacation that much easier. Having such good shopping and restaurants nearby was an added bonus! We walked and used our rent car the entire week. Owner Greg was very helpful from the start and we utilized his advice on several occasions.
If you are sitting on the fence about this property, just do it! You won't regret your decision. We would go back in a hearbeat!
The condo was nice. No problems.
Right from my arrival and upon opening the door to the suite, I was in awe. Everything you needed was provided for. Even all the kitchen amenities. The Cal king beds where so nice, to include all the luxious linens. The Resort was emacunlent in all the details. The staff was super friendly and helpful. After taking it all in. I had trouble deciding what to do next. Go to the beach (a few hundred feet away), go poolside or sit in one of the 3 sand bottom hot tubs. There was so much to do in kuai. Multiple tours (kalua rum tour or kuai coffee)or beaches to visit around the island. We traveled all around the island. We swam with sea turtles and saw monk seals sunbathing. Beautiful scenery all over. I recommend swimming in queens bath or hiking up the wimea canyon. Great shopping nearby too. Grocery store across the street from the resort. Although there is a Cosco up the street a few miles. I wish I had booked longer. I can't wait till my next visit. It definitely is one of my top 3 vacations. Thanks for the wonderful memories!
