By reading some reviews of the KBV, we were a bit skeptical. However, upon entry into our unit, we were pleasantly surprised. We were in unit D1, which is a ground level, 1 bedroom unit facing Kauai Beach Resort. We had requested a ground level unit as we have toddlers who ike to climb and were concerned about the balconies. There's a large fountain between our unit and the resort, so it blocked the noise wonderfully. Our unit was nice, and clean with newer appliances, I even had to peel the sticker off of one of the range. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. We cook at least 2 meals a day in the unit, so a fully stocked kitchen is wonderful. There were also outside grills steps away from our lanai which was a bonus as we used them alot. We had an apartment size washer and dryer which was nice for washing our towels and dirty clothes for the trip home. I found nothing wrong with the furniture, it suited our needs quite nicely. My daughter and I slept on the sleeper sofa, which surprisingly was quite comfortable with a memory foam mattress.
We loved the pools at Kauai Beach Resort which we were able to use. There is a toddler pool filled with sand, a 4' pool with a slide and then a separate area with several pools including beautiful waterfalls. The pool at Kauai Beach Villas was rather small, but good for the older generation without kids as it was much quieter.
Kauai Beach Resort (right next door) has a restaurant which you can eat at if you dont want to cook or go anywhere.
The room had a blu ray dvd player, a stereo with an ipod/iphone docking station, and a large flat screen tv in the living area as well as the bedroom.
The location of the resort is great, centrally located on the island so you can go north or south without much hassle. It took us 30 minutes to get to Princeville and about 30 minutes to get to Poipu. Kapaa is a very close 5-10 minute drive north to shops, dining and groceries. Lihue is the largest town which is also a 5-10 minute drive south where you can find shopping, dining and groceries as well. We went to Walmart to get toiletries and Costco for our coffee in Lihue.
The only complaints we had were that the living area gets quite warm during the day even with all the windows open and fans on. There is a window AC unit in the bedroom, but it only seems to cool the bedroom area. It would be nice to have one in the living area as well. The roosters are also a nusiance with their 4 am wake up calls, but hey, you are in Kauai, what else would you expect?
We loved it at the Kauai Beach Villas, and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
buildings G, H and F have views of the ocean, buildings G and H are beach front. Ground floor units...
