A dream resort for a family!! My only wish about is… I wish the pool was heated. The pool is colder than the ocean water. Still so fun though. Also, they have 3 hot tubs. One is for kids and it’s shears full to the max!! The other two you have to be 16 to get in. I wish it was 14. I think a 14 year old is plenty mature enough to sit in a hot tub with adults. It sucked for my 15 year old to sit amoungst toddlers in a hot tub.

This condo has everything you need. Clean, spacious with a view of the ocean and lazy river pool. Check in was easy, just go to your room and it is ready. Full size washer and dryer were great after the kids spent the day at the beach and pool. Mid Island location made going North to Hanalei Bay or South to Poipu very doable. Safeway and ABC store and Panda Express right across the street. Easy text communication with staff. Fun vacation.

The unit was spacious and had plenty of room for us to stretch out. The kitchen was well stocked and the breakfast table by the window was a great spot to start each day. The washer/dryer was helpful for staying clean and organized. The pool in the facility is great and the hot tubs were nice under the stars. Waipouli Beach is close but not a great spot to spend a beach day. We drove to get to other beaches (Lydgate and Kalapaki). The drives were easy.

This is the 2nd time that we've stayed in this unit at the Waioupili beach resort. We've been to many VRBOs and this is our absolute favorite. Love the resort and all its amenities and the unit is perfect for two couples. It has two master bedrooms with comfortable king beds and well appointed bathrooms. The living space is roomy and the kitchen well equipped. The unit is clean, well kept, comfortable and the property manager was easy to communicate with. We will be back!

We loved everything about our week at the Waipouli Beach Resort. Loved the location of the unit within the resort, but also it's location in charming Kapa'a Town. Really a perfect jumping off point for daily adventures anywhere on the island. The unit had everything we needed - even extra beach towels. The grocery store (Safeway) is right across the street and walkable - and Starbucks is next to Safeway. But there's a cuter local coffee shop a mile up the road in Kapa'a - Java Kai. Highly recommend all the restaurants in Kapa'a. We loved Fish Bar Deli so much we ate there twice. Along with the location, the Waipouli Property is beautiful. My seven-year-old loved the water slides and waterfalls at the pool. It never felt crowded and was walkable for my father who is disabled (and stayed in a different unit). The beach on property was pretty and easily accessible. The tradewinds the first week of March were strong, limiting our time in the pool. It rained nearly every morning but we never had a full day of rain. We'll recommend the Waipouli to friends visiting Kauai and definitely plan to stay there every time we visit the island.

We loved our week at the Waipouli Beach Resort. The location can't be beat. It's really centrally located to both Poipu and Princeville/Hanelei Bay, and the town of Kapa'a is incredibly charming with cute shops and restaurants. Plus Safeway and Starbucks are right across the street. Pool/hot tubs on the property are beautiful. Beach is great too. The Oasis restaurant has a great atmosphere, but is only open for dinner. Happy hour at 3 on Wednesdays has live music but grab a reservation if you want a spot. Condo had everything we needed, but we missed that it was a queen sized bed. The Beach House in Lawai is still our favorite for dinner at sunset. Fish Bar Deli in Kapa'a is fantastic for either lunch, dinner, drinks or grab and go. We hit it twice and it was excellent all times! Note visiting in the winter (even March) comes with very strong tradewinds and so we mostly stayed to the hot tubs on property because it was quite cold. The pool water wasn't particularly cold - the wind just made it chilly when you got out of the water.

Great location, only 15 minutes from the airport and walking distance to Safeway, Starbucks, and delicious shave ice. The condo was close to the beach and the resort’s restaurant (great choice for oceanfront dinner). The sliding glass doors opened to the pool and a nice seating area. The condo was clean and the parking was easy. I would definitely recommend this beautiful rental for your Kaua’i vacation.

We had an absolutely AMAZING time staying at Waipouli Beach Resort and this unit was just about perfect for our family of four (kids ages 4 and 6). The kids had so much fun in the pool and on the water slides and we loved the fact that the unit was on the ground floor because we could easily step out the door every evening for sunset. The unit was well equipped with everything that we could have wanted and it was conveniently located pretty close to the front entrance so we didn't have a long way to haul our stuff every day. Waipouli Beach Resort is in the perfect location to go North or South to different beaches and activities on the Island and there is a Safeway and Shave Ice shop right across the street which was super handy for last minute food/treat items. The check in process was smooth and communication with the property manager was great. The only negative feedback that I have is that the pull out bed was uncomfortable. We would put the kids to bed in the by contrast very comfortable king bed in the bedroom and wouldn't want to move them so my husband and I took the pull out bed. If you need more than one bed perhaps consider looking for a two bedroom in this complex. Would I stay here again despite the uncomfortable pull out bed? Absolutely!

Great location. A great resort with a nice pool. Condo was clean and the location on the ground floor made it easy access for walking out to the beach. I have stayed at this resort 4 other times. I do believe that the couch could use an update it was not comfortable. There were enough supplies in the condo which was very nice.

The property was very clean and better than described! You’re in the “middle” of the island with easy access to the north shore, south shore, and main parts of town. We loved every second. The pool is fantastic and the sunsets in the balcony were perfect. Will be staying again if we can!

The unit was as advertised. Beds were comfortable, plenty of towels, beach chairs tucked into a closet for our use was nice. We had an issue while we were there, but Lori was super responsive and did the best she could to assist. The communication before we rented (had some questions), after we officially rented, and while we were there was really top notch.

Liked the location, resort. Was unimpressed with 7:30 AM wake up call, and knock on the door at 9:30 AM asking how soon we would be vacating on day of departure.

Amazing place! If you’re familiar with Aulani/DVC villas, the floor plan and look of this condo is similar with multiple bathrooms. Perfect for families with children. Waterslide and pool were amazing, with water temperature fine for us and no different than another hotel we visited for a day with ResortPass. Conveniently close to restaurants, grocery stores. Extremely well stocked kitchen with supplies for cooking. Incredible balance of luxury and value.

We are a ‘Ohana, born and raised on the beautiful island of Kaua’i. Our apartment was set for fumigation so we decided to head east and stay at the Waipouli resort for a few days. Our property manager Richie was very helpful and communicative throughout the whole process and made everything so smooth and easy to navigate during our stay. We loved the condo and was surprised on how perfectly spacious it was for our family of four. The pool was awesome and the beach just a short walking distance from our room. We gathered ‘0pihi (limpets) fresh from the ocean and paleu it on the grill. It was so ono (delicious) & although the weather was on and off rainy and very windy, we sure had a great time and would definitely do it again. Mahalo

Absolutely loved our stay here. The place is absolutely perfect and conveniently located to everything. Oasis was very good (on site restaurant). And the hot tubs with sand bottoms were awesome. Note- the ocean is very wavy! We would happily return and stay longer next time!

We enjoyed our stay at this property very much. It’s our second time at this resort but first time at this unit. The resort itself is awesome for kids and the separate hot tubs for adults and families is great. We saw a seal one day on the beach! Having Safeway across the street, walking distance was super convenient. The unit has everything you need in the kitchen. Driving North/South from Kapaa was super easy and Kapaa is a cute town with many places to eat. A condo when traveling with little ones is a must for the washer/dryer use, full kitchen, separate living space and lanai areas especially with grandparents and this unit checked all the boxes. Milo is super responsive and all the info you need is communicated well and ahead of your stay. You’ll love the spacious bathrooms and living areas.

The condo and resort was a great spot for our family to spend a relaxing week in Kauai. Our kids enjoyed the pool, hot tub, slides, and beach. The condo is the perfect size for our family and we enjoyed cooking several meals in the beautiful kitchen. It was within walking distance of several stores and restaurants which enabled us not to have to rent a car for the entire trip. It’s centrally located though and makes exploring the island easy.
