This is a great central location. It's a beautiful affordable condo that has everything you need. Bill and Georgia were professional 100 percent of the way, even checking with me via text to make sure everything was okay. There was a lovely gift basket waiting for us!
A quaint and conveniently located condo on Kauai. Not a five star facility, but if your looking for a place to hang your hat, prep some meals, and enjoy the island - it's five star. Owners are nearby to take care of any problems - we had a minor one that was resolved immediately. It has everything needed for a home away from home. Their porch overlooks the ocean, facility has a pool, and one can easily get to north and south shore locations. Recommended and we will stay again.
My wife and I have visited Kauai several times, but this trip was the best! This one-bedroom condo fit our needs perfectly: conveniently located ten minutes from the airport, unobstructed view of the ocean and Wailua Bay (we spotted whales, dolphins and a green sea turtle from our lanai during our stay), air conditioning in the bedroom, beautiful furniture, a well-appointed kitchen and even a brand new washer/dryer (we packed less since we knew we could use the washer right in the condo). Bill and Georgia were very welcoming and let us know they were available to handle any problems or needs that might come up during our stay (none did).
There is a nice pool on the grounds and we used it several times. In addition, we walked to nearby Lydgate State Park to do some snorkeling one day. During our stay we drove to the end of the road at Kee Beach on the north and up to Kokee State Park at the other end of the island to do some hiking on the Pihea Trail. The location at Wailua Bay was convenient to the whole island.
We hope to go to Kauai again and, if we do, we plan to stay here again.
We came for our honeymoon and this condo was absolutely AMAZING in every aspect!! From the moment we arrived it felt like home for the week. Bill and Georgia had a welcome basket full of Hawaiian goodies for us, which was so incredibly thoughtful! The bedroom was air conditioned and had plenty of space for all of our things. The kitchen was amazing and fully stocked with anything we would need like spices, olive oil, cookware, and utensils. The condo was exceptionally clean. The view was beyond perfect, the view of the ocean and beach was almost unreal. There was a pool and grill just outside the condo, which was a nice bonus. It is a great location! Minutes away from Kapaa, easy to get to both the north and south parts of the island.
Even thought it rained for some of our stay, Bill and Georgia reached out to us to help us find fun things to do even when the weather was not perfect. We thank you so much for your kindness and would 100% stay here again if we come back!
This was our third time staying on Kauai and liked this location a lot more then Lihue or Poipu. There are a number of good restaurants within walking distance and a great beach to walk when you get tired of looking at it from the Lanai. Having our morning coffee and looking directly out at Wailua Bay and across to the Hilton Garden Inn was pretty much our morning routine. Even found a coffee roaster a few blocks away right beside our favourite restaurant The Sleeping Giant. Did the hike up the sleeping giant which was muddy and really glad I brought the hiking poles. The condo had everything we needed and Bill and Georgia were wonderful hosts. We will be back.
This condo was the perfect spot to stay while vacationing on Kauai. 15 minutes from the airport and 45 minutes from the north shore, south shore and Waimea Canyon. Condo was very clean, decorated in a cute beach house style and provided all of the amenities that we were looking for. The night time temps in October were still a bit warm so the AC in the bedroom at night was a must. In the evening you could get a good breeze blowing through the condo by opening the screen door to the lanai and the glass storm shutters on the front door. The condo is very close to Safeway for groceries The prices are significantly higher than on the mainland so be prepared. We dined out at night and had dinner at four outstanding restaurants within walking distance of the condo. Brick Oven Pizza and Monico's Taqueria are right across the street. Monico's has excellent Mexican food!
Try anything on the menu that is "Al Pastor" and the fish tacos are the best we have ever had...and that is coming from people who live in AZ and are surrounded by great Mexican restaurants. BOBBY V'S Italian restaurant is right up the street located in the Coconut Marketplace. Extensive menu, good service and nice atmosphere. They currently do not have a liquor license but you can go next door to the ABC Store and buy a bottle of wine to have with your meal. A corking fee will be charged. For a nicer dinner out walk a little bit past BOBBY V'S to the Kauai Coast Resort and dine at the Hukilau Lanai. The restaurant purchases from local farmers and fisherman and the French inspired menu choices are wonderful! The curry lobster bisque and the pork tenderloin were our favorites and the desserts we ordered were a delicious end to a great meal!
If you are a snorkeler, Snorkel Bob's is right up the road from the condo. Kauai has many great snorkeling spots and we took our snorkeling gear with us every day just in case we came across a good beach.
For a small island, Kauai has many things to see and do. We enjoyed many evenings on the lanai with a cold beverage listening the ocean waves and admiring the beach view under the full moon.
There are many places in the world to see but we will be coming back to Kauai some day and would stay at WBV Condo 106 again!
