My family of five, including three teens, stayed here for nine days in unit 202. The view was amazing and just what I was hoping for. The place was immaculately clean and very comfortable including the beds. Everything worked. I especially noticed how smooth the sliding glass doors and screens were, and all the blinds worked. The kitchen was well... More

We recently returned from our trip to Kauai. We changed islands part way through our trip and were disappointed we did. We come to Kauai for R & R from stressful jobs. Our experience was very much overshadowed by our room & it's location. The Positives: *Lovely location on the cliffs above the coastline. *Nice facility, very clean - interesting... More

Huge condo (unit 206) - 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, washer/dryer/dishwasher, 2 baths, separate shower and an air-tub. No A/C, but that seems to be the norm for the island. Was impressed that washing machine and dishwasher detergent was provided. Plenty of towels and beach towels. Nice view of the ocean from the outdoor patio (note that I don't think... More

Beautiful Cliffside ocean view condo. which was beside the pool. Being at ground level upstairs noise was noticeable, and the view was not as good as the upper levels, but was adequate. The staff was friendly at the activity center on site. The condo was adequately appointed, and equipped. The ocean crashing against the cliffs below us was so beautiful,... More

We had not explored the northern part of this beautiful Kauai island until this trip. Don't let the weather reports discourage you. Yes, it rains but not all day and the rainbows are phenomenal.

We stayed here 8 days with 2 reservations, one from RCI and one from Wyndham timeshare points. We were in unit 208 which had a view of pool, the dolphin fountain and the ocean.

We stayed at Wyndham’s Shearwater for a week. It should be 5-star, given its location, but it isn't. We hope that most people would have a better experience than we had. Shearwater is a modest-sized (~30 units) set of condos set high at the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean. Views are spectacular from most or all units, including... More

Shearwater is one of the best resorts I have ever visited. The views from your condo are outstanding. Room 106 has probably the worst view but at any other resort it would be considered a fantastic view. The grounds and condos are in perfect condition. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Just a GREAT place.
