Wailua Bay View was perfect for us! Great condo with everything you need for a short or long stay. We enjoyed our coffee on the lanai in the mornings and drinks and pupus in the evening watching the gorgeous ocean surf. So many great restaurants, beaches and shopping all within walking distance.
Beautiful and comfortable! Quite too with just the peaceful waves coming onshore. Thank you for the shampoo, conditioner and body wash to use since those are hard to pack with the airlines/ flights. Such a wonderful spot to call home during our vacation. We hope to return some day!
I loved that a sea turtle and a seal swam near me at Poi’pu Beach. My spouse did sky diving too!
The location was great for all of our exploring. Didn't realize the condo was so close to the main road, but it was fine. Manager was very friendly. The books about Kauai were very helpful for our excursions. Close to shopping and restaurants as well.
Perfect location to take off from for all Kauai adventures and exploring. Perfect place to come home to for relaxing with the ocean waves to watch and hear. Perfectly appointed, it deserves my highest recommendation.
Condo was the perfect floor plan and size, they had everything we could ever need at our fingertips! We couldn't believe the view, friends actually asked if I had filters on my pictures, which I did not it was just that beautiful! Condo was clean and property management company was so easy to work with! We even saw a pod of dolphins in front, on our last day! Downside for us was just how quiet it was, we were scared to make a peep, but this would definitely be a perk for most!
It was just right for our stay though we were in 104 and if you looked to the right it was a dilapidated building. As long as you looked straight ahead or left it was sbeautiful view.

WBV is situated close to numerous wonderful beaches and essential services with Kapa’a — and its “beach vibe” — just up the road (5 to 10-minute drive) . The condo property is centrally located on the east coast of the island, which allows for relatively easy access (max. <1 hour by car) to beautiful sights and places along the East, North (wetter) and South (drier) coasts, as well as inland from there (West). They call it the Garden Island for a reason!!! The vegetation is beautiful and the beaches are numerous and varied, with many safe swimming and some snorkeling opportunities On the whole, people (local and tourists) were very courteous and generally very laid back 🤙. There were some traffic “pinch points” during the daytime — due in part to ongoing road-improvement construction and in part to simple traffic volume issues on the Kuhio Hwy. Issues were minimized by avoiding higher volume commuter times.
We enjoyed our stay with Wailiau Bay. The unit was very clean and tastefully decorated. We were right on the water and enjoyed the sound of the waves at night.
There was a lot of road construction during our stay. The constuctiom
I gave the unit a three for location primarily due to the road construction and the tent city at the adjacent beach.
Nice vacation condo in great location. Very comfortable and convenient and the view was spectacular.
Great location, close to shopping, beaches, restaurants, and an easy drive to the north or south shores of the island.
The property was as described. The amazing thing about the property was, although it was a bit dated, the care and upkeep was evident. The fit and finish on the entire apartment was excellent. The apartment was not air conditioned, except for the most important bedroom. It was nicely cooled and made for great sleeping. Not to worry about the rest of the apartment, the cross breeze from the patio door through the front door louvers was more than enough cooling. It's Hawaii and it was very pleasant.
The apartment looked out over the Wailua Beach. The view, framed with tall coconut palms was a scenic photo every morning for sunrise and every late afternoon. Gorgeous! As an added bonus, there was a telescope and binoculars to check out whatever was going on a the beach or the Hikinaakala Heiau across the bay.
The property was beautifully cared for by Mark the manager. The pool was relaxing and quiet. An occasional chicken showed up on the back lawn, but Mark chased them off with his squirt gun!
The apartment was 5 minutes away from the Fern Grotto boat tour, about 5 minutes away from the local Safeway and 3 minutes away from the touristy Coconut Marketplace with its very large ABC store with good liquor prices.
There were quite a few good restaurants nearby. We liked the Lava Lava Beach Club for dinner, and No. 1 Chinese and BBQ for ono plate lunches.
We would definitely stay here again. Highly Recommended.
Perfect location to explore the whole island. The ocean view is outstanding and we had breakfast on the lanai every morning and even for a few take out dinners. Walk to beach and shopping. Nice pool area. It’s a nice and small condo complex, so it’s quiet (we loved that). Would stay there again.
We enjoyed our stay. The location was great, mid-island with lots of restaurants near by. The condo was clean and comfortable. I was surprised that the AC was in the bedroom and not central AC but we turned down the temperature, used the fans in the living room and closed the shades while we were out and entire condo stayed cool enough.
We didn't want to leave. Such a nice place and quiet beach.
The condo was clean and comfortable. The lanai was great, and the condo's proximity to the beach is unbeatable! I enjoyed this property's location on the island and would definitely stay here again.
Overall, we were pleased with our stay at this property. The condo is clean and furniture looks new. The location is great as far as where it is on the island. There's a nice bakery across the street. Unfortunately, the area surrounding the unit is dirty. There was a vehicle at the beach that is either abandoned or has someone living in it. There's a homeless camp under the bridge down the street/beach and that population traveled the street and beach near the condo.
I also don't recommend this unit for people with children. Pool rules are very strict and while most people were friendly toward our children, others made it clear that even on their best behavior, they were not welcome.
Condo is in a great location. Coffee on the lanai in the morning overlooking the beach was awesome. It's an older property but well maintained. Pool was sparkling clean. Inside of condo shows its age but we just slept there, had breakfast and explored the island all day. Owners provide beach chairs and towels, boogie boards, cooler, even fishing poles. Binoculars came in handy on our hikes. We were happy to have the washer/dryer too. Well equipped condo!
While an older property very well maintained. Good location. Furniture and bed very comfortable. Pool area was very nice. While close to road we did not notice any noise
First of all, the location of this property was perfect and the view truly doesn't get better. We very much enjoyed the lanai and morning coffee with the variety of birds and chickens and the beautiful ocean. A 10/10.
The condo came equipped with many extra necessities, ie. Keriug, plus coffee maker, blender, salt, pepper, seasoning, ice cube trays, etc. It's an older unit with many things having been updated. The furniture seems new. A brand new king size mattress was recently purchased for the bedroom. The mattress was perfect, firm, but not hard. We slept great. The bedroom air conditioner could use an update, as it is an older unit and quite loud when it cuts in during the night. We weren't overly bothered by it, however if you are a light sleeper, I could see it being an issue, as it did wake us ocassionally. There was also a brand new mattress in the pull out sofa bed. Our boys, ages 11 and 13, had no complaints and said it was comfy. Note, the bed linens should be replaced, no stains, just a couple of rips in the master bedroom linens. Lots of towels available and those were new and fluffy. Washer and dryer worked good. If we had to pick one negative thing about this condo, it would be that it needs a fresh coat of paint. The closet doors etc almost looked dirty. A coat of paint is definitely needed. Also, the cobwebs, etc. should be cleaned on the inside of the front door and under the bed needs vacuuming. The front door is old and showing a lot of wear. Minor things, but still things that should be done to improve renter experience. Would we rent this condo again? YES! We were pleased with our stay and it meet all of our needs. We very much appreciated the ability to use the beach chairs, cooler, beach toys and boogie boards, etc.
As a side note for anyone renting at this condo complex, there are some residents in this building who wish for the pool area to be a "quiet pool" and not a place for children to play. Again, this wasn't a big deal to us as we barely used the pool, but if you have children you may be dissappointed. The pool is beautiful and is even 8ft deep at one end, but if you expect it to be your typical report type pool, you will be dissappointed due some residents in this building.
Thank you to the owners of this property for providing a wonderful place for us to spend our vacation. Much Aloha :)
My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful 8 day stay at this condo. Rarely have I been to a place that was as well equipped. We like to eat in, and every time I wondered whether the condo had a particular item I’d need, I had only to look in the well organized kitchen, and there it was. The view from the lanai was beautiful, and we enjoyed many meals out there. Another advantage is that the location is in between the areas of Poipu and Hanalei, and we took numerous trips to both places. Safeway is a few miles away, and there is a nice mall within walking distance that has restaurants as well as a farmers’ market. Finally, there is a great bakery across the street where we bought delicious sour dough bread. It was a great place to start our vacation, and I would highly recommend it.
The kitchen was well apportioned. Living room was ok, viewing deck Awesome.
Odors from the bedroom terrible. Mattress is wore out. Bed linens have permanent stains and odors. Tried to sleep on the hide-a-bed. Bad also. We purchased an air mattress from Walmart and finally got some sleep.
We just loved the condo. It is pretty, clean and it has a great view. The communication with the administrador was excellent.
Great location, clean and roomy place
This is our second visit to this property. We love all the amenities and flexibility of this condo (full kitchen, living space, bathroom, and in-unit laundry). We have vacationed numerous times to all the Hawaiian islands over the last 25 years and we have learned that hotels can’t compete with condo living on the islands. This properties’ lanai ocean view, trade wind cooling and lullaby of crashing waves at any hour when you open the sliding glass doors, is a relaxing paradise. The location of this property is central to every adventure on the island whether you go as far North as the road takes you through Hanalei or you venture South to Poipu and beyond. We love the cleanliness of this affordable property and the two communal gas grills at the pool are a great way to enjoy locally caught fish. BTW, we had the best Mexican restaurant experience at Monaco’s right near Wailua Bay Condos in Kapaa. We will be back!!
This location was conveniently located. It provided easy access to spots all over the island. The view from the lanai was beautiful.
Stayed 2 weeks in Kauai, business and then vacation. Check in was easy and the condo was clean other than the blender that was dirty but we replaced!
AC is in bedroom only, so be prepared to be warm on occasion if you visit in the warmer months. Food is very expensive so plan accordingly. Its almost easier in my opinion to cook Breakfast / lunch and go out for dinner. (Restaurant meals sometimes better deal than Safeway and cooking.)
The negative is that the beach pictures are old! This is not a beach access right out your door place. You will need to walk down to street level and the beach has cliffs and lots of debris and wood on it. The beach was washed out years ago from a storm. The pics should be updated to reflect this. Also, be advised the increase of homeless persons in Kauai. You will see them nearby! Also the islanders have a love hate relationship with mainlanders. You will hear that as well. (witnessed lots of arguments)
On a different note: This is the safest place in the planet at this time due to heavy COVID restrictions and mask wearing! Very impressive. Be respectful to the islanders and remember you are a visitor. I saw many mainlanders acting ridiculous.
Other than the beach view being washed out, and the heavy traffic outside the door, it was a good place to stay and a fair price. Property management was very easily to work with.
This condo is in a convenient area. Close to the air port and shopping centers. The condo came equipped with everything you could need. Neighbors are a bit loud and you can hear everything above you. We wish there was AC throughout, but there was only AC in the bedroom and the bed was a bit Uncomfortable for me. All in all, nice place to stay for the time we were there!
This condo has absolutely everything you could need and is so well appointed. The neighborhood is quiet and there is a lot of restaurants and groceries within walking distance. I loved getting up and walking to the market/deli for breakfast and coffee, walking home and eating on the lanai. The view is amazing. The management is also responsive and well organized. Mahalo Waimea Bayview.❤️
The view from this condo is breathtaking every time you look outside! Totally worth the stay just to see that. Only complaint is if you're noise sensitive I'd get an upper unit, the person above stomped their feet at all hours. But we weren't home that much for it to matter.
The property was clean and adequate. However, it is an older unit and needed some upgrades. For example, the bedroom has a window air conditioning (AC) unit. The AC was EXTREMELY loud when running and made it very difficult to sleep. Also the mattress and exhaust fan in the bathroom need to be replace.
Cindy, the property management representative, was very responsive to our needs. A battery was missing from one of the TV remotes and she personally brought to us as soon as I reported the issue to her. She also recommended an excellent restaurant for me and my wife to celebrate our anniversary.
Our vacation was great and the property was very nice and clean. However, there were two separate occasions that I was charged additional amounts after having paid the entire balance in full at time of booking. These mistakes were corrected quickly but it sure seems like this company was trying to “sneak one past me”. I had family in other rentals with the same company that this happened to as well. Keep an eye on your credit card!
