We love this little studio. So close to a private beach, restaurants and activities. We will be back. Very clean and comfortable

We really enjoyed our stay. Great property in Kapaa, the house is just in ground floor so easy to access and the back door just a few steps from the pool and the beach. The owner communicates fast and very helpful. Totally recommended.

The location is very nice on water with a small beach front but they failed to indicate it was a lock out room so could easily hear the voices in the main unit. It also was adjacent to the janitorial room which was really loud. The room was clean. New looking microwave and frig. The bathroom was nice with soaps and shampoos plus hair dryer. No windows except frosted slatted window for ventilation to the parking lot so feel isolated. My bad though as I did not see pictures of the room. Due diligence as I did not.

This was everything we needed for our stay. Clean when we arrived, well equipped/appointed, and there's a nice quiet beach only a short walk away. A grocery store and some restaurants are also within easy walking distance. There is a little road noise being in the building next to the main road. It was otherwise a very quiet area during our stay. The beds are softer than average. It was great to have a small washer and dryer in the unit.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This unit is exactly as described, perhaps even better. The ground floor location makes the lawn space between the unit and the ocean seem like part of the living space. Because the unit is far from the common areas of the complex (pool, etc) it is quiet and seems quite private. Groceries, restaurants, etc., are close by. Communications with the property manager was clear and timely, and the arrival was a breeze. Would recommend this unit for a couple seeking a relaxed ocean front stay in Kauai.

Wonderful property, can't recommend enough ! Great communication, was as listed. Perfect location, the midpoint on the island for heading North / South. We will definitely stay here again on our next Kauai visit.

This was our first time visiting Kauai in the location was great because we could easily access both the north and south part of the island. The road noise was a bit loud but you can walk to restaurants and grocery stores very easily.

We arrived and found the condo to be in a central location to restaurants and shopping, which was nice. The unit was clean, bright and the neighbors were very friendly. We found it to be just as advertised. We did have a small bump with the Wi-Fi connection, but the site management responded immediately and the issue was quickly resolved. We were very pleased and would recommend this condo for your stay in Kauai.

Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay. The condo was smaller than expected, but workable. The fold out sofa was comfortable for my 18 year old son. The kitchen had an ample amount of dishes, pans, and utensils. Safeway is located across the street. The pool was spotless, and the condo was very clean.

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. Great location for accessing both north and south shore. Well stocked pantry. Very accommodating and responsive host. Don’t forget to checkout storage closet that has a the beach stuff you need left by previous renters.

We had a great time in Kapaa, this condo was mostly perfect for us and I would stay here again. The location of this place is very central, it’s right beside the highway so it is a bit loud at night and in the morning. Also there are roosters that crow and you can hear them all night so bring good earplugs! We are a family of 5, there are 2 bedrooms and a couch. It isn’t a pullout couch which I didn’t realize when I booked because the listing does say it’s good for 4-5 people. Also they only provided 3 beach towels. For a family of 5 that is going to the beach daily it would have been nice to provide a towel for each. Otherwise this place was great it was a really good price for the area and otherwise very comfortable and convenient.

We loved our Kauai Kahlani condo! It is in a great location, has 2 pools and is a short walk to the beach. The owner was friendly and available during our stay. Loved the condo and all it offered. They had beach chairs, coolers, scuba gear and sand toys in the closet. Great stay! Would highly recommend.

Ck out instructions for a unit that charges out cleaning & represents sanitizing the unit. Our sheets felt sticking & had body odor, the floors had a film of street dirt that Indicated that the unit was cleaned prior to our ck in. I do not recommend staying at unit that is not properly cleaned & sanitized for safe conditions for guest. Check-Out Instructions from owner. 2. Start a load of laundry in the washer with any dirty sheets/towels you have used. Put it on Quick Wash. 3. Make sure you don’t have any dirty dishes remaining.

This has a very good location, walkable to many places. The property is clean and well maintained.

Overall we had a great time. The unit is set up in a way that is perfect for families - a king size bedroom, and a den with a sleeper sofa for the kids, in addition to the living area. For the price, that set up could not be beat! The unit itself could use a little sprucing up, but was overall fine. One of the pools did not seem to be heated while we were there, but the other one was warm enough to swim in. My kids LOVED exploring the beach here and looking for sea cucumbers - I think they liked that more than some of the days we spent at more swimmable beaches.

2 pools one tucked by a wall and the other with ocean view. Nice beach for sunrise/set. Would come again.

Overall the apartment was in great condition and we had no issues parking our vehicle. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The only issue was that the sofa bed mattress was too soft and possibly needs to be replaced. The folder listing attractions and restaurants needs to be updated since some of the listings are no longer in business.

The property was clean. Up 3 flights of stairs. The owner was not prompt in responding. The paperwork said to take trash out daily but didn’t say where to take it and left no other trash bags. But it worked for us.

We arrived late at night after 11:00pm. I was concerned that we might have an issue because of our late arrival, and we were traveling with my grandchildren. I reached out through VRBO to communicate with the property management about how we would gain access to our condo and we were given misinformation. When we arrived to the property there was no one available to talk to so we could find out the code for the keypad on the door. I did not receive the code via e-mail. I was on the phone with a VRBO representative from 11:00pm until 12:30am and they were unable to help us, in fact they were telling us that we were going to have to find other accommodations. We finally managed to find mention of an off site property management in an email that was sent while we were on the plane and found a night time security person who was able to get us the code, but we sure got off to a terrible start on our trip that could have been completely averted by just e-mailing the code to us. Other than that the condo was nice and the location was great. The beach was beautiful and the property was well maintained.

This condo was a nice place to stay near the ocean. You can see it from the condo. We saw 2 monk seals resting on the beach nearby throughout our stay. The beds don't look like much but they are very comfortable. I slept great and that is uncommon for me when traveling. The A/C is a huge bonus. Especially if you are not use to the humidity. It is a great location close to the grocery store, restaurants, etc. It is also a unit that is right next to the community center with ping pong & BBQ's which we enjoyed. There were lots of beach chairs and boogie boards. And I liked having a washer & dryer in the unit. The community in general is also very quiet and peaceful. On the downside, There is an adjoining room and the door is near the end of the hallway next to the half bath. I was fine with my husband but if I had been a single person I would have wanted to know about this. If it was in the ad then that is my bad but I don't remember seeing anything about it. Overall, for the price I felt it was a great value and I would stay here again.

Loved the updated and fun(ky) beach vibe. Everything we needed was provided and the little balcony overlooking the Pacific was perfection. Sunrises to die for...great pool and tide pools too. Condo is in a busy commercial area, yet once inside...an oasis awaits.

The condo itself was pretty average but it was close to the beach and shopping.

Nice beachfront property. Nice pool. Great location. Great communication with host.

Property is conveniently located, with Safeway across the street and about 15 min to Costco and airport. It has all the amenities that are needed, appliances are new, kitchen cabinets are pretty. The views from the property are very beautiful with being able to see the beach and the water up close, and you can seep listening to the sound of waves. About a block away starts a walking trail along the beach, if you want to exercise a bit or rent a bike and ride. If you like to watch sunrise over the ocean, you just need to look out the window or step on the balcony. Note for people that want to swim in the ocean: entrance to the ocean near property has rocks that you need to pass through to get to the swimming part; there are some gaps but not much; I would recommend wearing water shoes with sturdy/rubber soles to protect your feet.

Central location, great communication with owners. Layout of condo is a bit odd - No bathroom near the "master" bedroom. Paper thin walls, so pretty noisy with all the other tenants. Couldn't leave the windows open at night for the wonderful trade winds because of all the noise from the courtyard and the complex game room (which is next to this unit). Apartment dingy overall and needs a face lift. Past ceiling leaks haven't been repaired completely, walls are dirty, cheap furniture is scratched up, and the couch was filthy. It's nice to have AC units in the bedrooms, but they mounted the units right above the beds, so we had to turn them off when sleeping because the cold air blows directly down on you otherwise. A little TLC would go a long way to making this a place worth the price they are charging!

The condo was cute and Aloha. Walk out on this ground unit to tide pools, and property amenities were good, property grounds were pretty. Ocean views all day all night, perfect breeze. Location in Kapaa is perfect for reaching most of the islands best places. Airport is 30 mins, Waimea canyon 45 mins, Nepali reserve 1 hour, north shore 45 minutes. Poipu beach snorkeling 40 minutes, Lydgate state park 10 mins. Condo is small, but has what a small family needs, and is nice. If you are spending your time in the condo instead of being outside, you are missing the action anyways. Mahalo!

The unit was ocean front with a beautiful ocean view and a great private beach steps away. It is within walking distance to many shops, stores, and restaurants. It had everything we needed, including a washer/dryer. It also has its own private and free parking space. With its central location it is easy to access all areas of the island and is close to the airport without being too close. Highly recommended.

Excellent except for two points. The lanai chairs are uncomfortable, which led to us spending little time there, and A/C would be good. Despite the breeze, it did get quite warm at times. The interior was very comfortable and there was a recliner, which was an asset. Well equipped kitchen and great views. Close to grocery stores and restaurants.

December 2023

Great location for access to the whole island. Nice little beach.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our stay in our unit was great. We love the property location and the walk to downtown. This unit is well supplied and overlooks the pool and activity area which makes for good visiting. The grounds are very well kept. Perhaps the owner should consider replacing the carpet with something more practical. Overall, our vacation was wonderful.

We stayed at this little 1 bedroom for two nights. It was just what we needed- a clean, conveniently located landing pad! Sure, it's not the Ritz, but who wants to spend their whole time on Kauai in their hotel room anyway? The bed was comfy, the bathroom roomy, and it had AC. It is part of a bigger condo and is only the master bedroom, with a locked connecting door. But we couldn't hear anything through the door and this didn't bother us at all. The AC was quiet and efficient, and there were also a few fans supplied if needed. There is parking provided. Its just a few minutes (not even) drive to old town, and right on the main drag through town (though set far back, so traffic noise is not an issue), so you can get on the highway and get to your next adventure easily. The host was super communicative, gracious, and just great! End to end, a wonderful experience!

This was our first VRBO and I am impressed. The unit was clean, well stocked and had newer appliances. The location is great and convenient to shopping and dining. The hosts are very responsive. The microwave stopped working Saturday night, I messaged the host. He called me within minutes, and we had a new microwave the next morning. Absolutely awesome! Highly recommend and will stay here again. Thanks!

The location is very good, room is convenient, enjoyed the access to ping-pong table and the beach is right outside the property. Wish there was some sugar, coffee, salt etc. basic condiments so we do not need to purchase for just two or three days we are there.

Wonderful stay at the Kauai Kailani. I'm originally from Kauai but left years ago to live on the mainland. Returning home to stay at a hotel makes you feel like a tourist, our unit at the Kauai Kailani felt like being home. Clean updated unit, it had everything we needed for our stay. Our two boys made good use of the bodyboards! The corner view of the pool and beach is great for waking up to the sunrise each day. Would definitely come back again.

Nice place. I liked the doors on the room with the sofa bed for privacy. There were several marks on the floor with the signed and living area.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 weeks on our honeymoon and it was a great place to stay! The suite had everything we needed in the kitchen and also had brand new beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards! There was also a small cooler for the beach. We loved the two pools and beach access and the location was great (easy to get to anywhere on the island and plaza across the street).
