“No disclosure that pool is not open”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Just wanted to point this out for any guests staying for Christmas or New Year's. I will be arriving in Kauai tomorrow and am spending a part of my trip at Waikomo Stream properties. I received a call this morning from Parrish indicating that the pool will not be open during our visit. Nowhere was it disclosed on the Parrish website that the pool was closed for work, and they did not offer me any alternate lodging that does have a pool. I am very disappointed as the one thing I searched specifically for was a pool - unlike a lot of folks I don't like sand and saltwater, and prefer spending time at the pool over the ocean. We have booked with Parrish in the past, but this will be my last stay with them after poor disclosure and no compensation for having a key amenity closed. Hopefully the unit is better than my experience so far.

Loved Villa 231! Newly renovated by new owners who obviously put in the hard work! Well stocked, well decorated, all new carpet, comfortable and cozy! Felt like home without clutter! Very stylish and plenty of room. Pool was under construction, from my research it still is two months later (boo to management company!). Am already looking for time to go back! So close to everything! The owners provided lots of great beach extras for us to use during our stay! 3rd floor means nobody over you and a decent view! Stairs were good since I ate too much of the abundance of excellent island food! Haha!

What a GREAt location, close to beach & shopping. You can walk across the street to eating & shopping or take a short walk to the the shoreline for a scenic view. We were right next to the stream that had koie fish in them. The master room has a huge King size bed, very very comfie :~) The lani was breathtaking! I would highly recommend this Vialla or any of them at his location.

Room Tip: We stayed in 533 very nice accomadations!

When my husband and I walked into unit 101 at Waikomo Stream Villas we were impressed on how we felt "Right at Home" This unit was cozy, clean, and came with all of the main essentials. There was even a good assortment of coffee and teas! The sliding doors in the living area opened out to this breathtaking patio. There was the stream with lots of koi, and many tropical trees and birds right in front of us. How romantic sitting out their in the evening having a glass of good wine, or in the mornings having our cup of coffee. There is many good restaurants within a two minute walk from the condo. The pool is wonderful. We spent a few hours lounging around the pool, and reading a good book. There is a fabulous beach about 5 minutes down the road. When you want to take your car and do some sight seeing, you don't have far to go! Salt Water Pond Park, Waimea Canyon and the Kilauea Lighthouse is just a few of the places to see. If you are looking to have a great lunch, try the Kilauea Fish Market. My husband and I fell in love with Kauai. The locals are friendly,and the beaches are not crowded. Thank you for sharing 101 with us! We will be back!!

Unit 220 felt luxurious, with a very well equipped kitchen, a large and comfortable bed, nice shower, and more than enough living space. The unit was also very clean, and comes with WiFi.

While this is not a sea front property, several beaches are within walking distance (5-15 minutes).

We booked the unit via the Parrish collection, which was very friendly and professional.

Room Tip: The units are individually owned, so each one can be quite different.

We have stayed at Waikomo Springs our last few trips to Kauai. The property manager is courteous and responsive to needs, the grounds are always being maintained, but the interior of this room simply needs updating. The carpet is old as are much of the pans to cook with. The cabinet doors felt as though they would fall off if I tugged too hard. However, the room is very comfortable for a family of 4 (two beds upstairs). The furniture is comfortable.

The wireless connection is great, the stores are close by including a small grocery store much less expensive than the one at KuKuilua. Not bad, but an investment is needed to make this condo more in line with other units we have stayed in at this property.

We stayed in unit 221. Booked ahead through parrishcondos, the operator was very helpful (++) and booked us on a one-week deal (we only stayed 6-days, turned out to be cheaper than booking individual nights).

Like many other reviewers, we were wary of the crickets/bullfrogs at night, which I'm told was potentially horrendous depending on where you were.

I think the listing was described as 'island charm', which was a nice way of saying 80/90's era finishings -- they were pleasantly nice. Warning: Fridge had a terrible glass surface that almost fell on us twice. fair-sized countertop, old but serviceable stove to boil water & cut-fruits. Nice bedroom, lots of space to house a family easily (for 2 ppl it was pleasant overkill). Bathroom was fine to get yourself ready for the day.

Unit location was fine -- Have to haul your luggage up 2 flights of stairs. That was that max I was willing to do (would not book a 3rd floor unit) so we were happy. Unit 221's balcony faces the next door hotel's parking lot -- we never really stayed there for the ocean view anyway. Still, that meant less bullfrog noise. Repeat, for people scared of bullfrogs: it wasn't a problem for us at unit #221.

Great location near poipu beach, IMO one of the better beaches in Kauai (southeast coast was great). It's the first stop after the poipu village shopping centre roundabout, so the location near to the village (cool restaurants, icecream, coffee, lounges, shopping) was something we didn't even realize. It is a 30-min drive north to kapaa & it's associated restuarants/traffic though. If you're 'doing' the island, you're almost certainly going to go north all the way to Hanalei Bay: poipu's location simply made that trip a bit longer. Just consider that as a byproduct of staying in poipu, rather than of the Waikomo Stream Villas itself.

Considering its location amongst other nearby condo developments that cost way more, we considered this a bit of a gem, one of the holdouts against the development that had been going on nearby. There was a condo building being constructed at the time of our stay, but we didn't hear any noise or have any construction road blocks at all.

Would recommend to friends.
