We are staying in the "A" building in a condo owned by a private owner. It's very nice. Very large with views of the ocean right of the deck and spunds of the surf wafting in the large sliding door. There is a very big pool area with a river-type pool and slides and 3 hot tubs -1 one of... More

Our room was top notch and the premises are very nice. The only drawback is that there are so many rules, it gets to be a headache. We have stayed many times in VRBO houses/condos. With two small children it makes sense. Most are very welcoming, but the vibe we got was that there seemed to be a rule for... More

First time trip to Kaua'i. I had difficulty figuring out where on the island to stay but ended up settling on the eastern coast based on a great rate i found on a unit at the Waipouli on VRBO; i was not disappointed. If you wish to get out and see the whole of the island then Kapaa is by... More

This is not a "true" hotel - each unit is privately owned, and rented out on behalf of the owners (well managed by Outrigger). We had one of their few "studio" units. Just like a spacious "regular" hotel room. No maid service - but who cares? Our room faced the inner courtyard, and had a spacious lanai (balcony), with a... More

I took my family (my mom and 2 kids) to Waipouli Beach Resort and was so disappointed. We were so excited to stay there because of the photos but we were heartbroken with the experience. I hate being negative but this hotel and their staff really ruined our trip we saved for, for so long. The worst part was the... More

We have been to Hawaii a number of times over the years. Oahu, Maui, Kauai. This was our second time back to Kauai, this time with three kids in tow. We need a really family friendly place to stay as a base so we could relax but also head out and enjoy all that Kauai had to offer. Waipouli is... More

Our family loved our stay here in Kauai. We were looking for something affordable, and that accommodates 3 young kids. The quality of the rooms and beautiful grounds with 2 water slides sold us. Also, the location being central to both the North and South shores. Unit D207 did us well. 2 bedroom, 3 bath unit. 2nd floor, down the... More

I will start by saying some of the minuses were not exactly the fault of the management, they were due to "life on the island" and its interesting twists and turns. For example, the 6 hour power outage on New Years eve was island-wide, not much they can do about this. The fact that it coincided with New Years and... More
