“Great place to stay in Kauai Unit #309”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

This Wailua Bayview condo is located in the central island of Kauai. It's about 10 - 15 minutes to the airport, Walmart and Costco. About 45 minutes to the northside etc. With this oceanfront unit #309, you can see surfers, fishermen every morning and beautiful sunset every night. The bed and the sofa are comfortable. Beach chairs, beach mats and coolers are very useful. In-suite washer and dryer adds a bonus to our trip. This unit need more dining chairs for family of 4 (currently 2 chairs and 2 bar stools). We had a great stay at this property.

My husband and I stayed in unit 214 for our "Babymoon" while I was 5 months pregnant.

The condo exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The view is incredible and lovely sound of the ocean permeates the living room. Sitting out on the balcony was extremely relaxing. I spent a lot of time there for daily breakfasts or just watching the waves and people strolling/fishing on the beach below. I will note that you cannot walk directly from the init down to the water. you have to walk through the complex to the road and then around one building to the beach (its not a very long distance).

The condo is well equipped with coolers, beach chairs and snorkeling gear (even had fins that fin my husbands size 12 feet!), a boogie board, books, dvds, large flat screen TV, and an ipod dock. There is free wireless internet access. I think I was most impressed with the kitchen. If you need it, it was there. All sorts of utensils, gadgets, etc. I really like that they leave un-perishable items that people leave behind such as cooking oil, vinegar, tabasco, ketchup, mayo.... It is so silly to buy these things for 1 week and then have them tossed. We saved a lot of money using what was there and buying a couple items that we then left. Along the same lines there was a closet with toiletries people had likely left (first aid kit, aloe, lotion, shampoo).

The bed was very comfortable - on the softer side with very nice sheets and pillows. There was also a small flat screen TV but we did not use it. The AC at night in the bedroom was perfect.

The location in Wailua on the East shore is ideal for trips to both the North (my favorite) and South shores. Also the Wailua/Kapaa area has great restaurant options and has grocery stores (we rented a lot of movies from the Redbox DVD rental machines for evenings).

We had no issues with noise since we were on the side of the complex furthest from the road.

Crystal - one of the owners is a very helpful and responsive during the booking process and with any last minute questions you may have.

Overall we had an amazing time and would love to return - perhaps next time with our new addition :)

We recently stayed in #310 and can't say enough good things about how perfect it was. We stayed at this complex about 20 years ago before kids and loved it so much we knew it would be perfect to visit again with our 14 and 16 year olds. The view was excellent and room very comfortable, with lots of extras like snorkel gear, beach towels and boogie boards to borrow. The manager Tim made our trip extra special. He was so friendly and helpful with recommendations, etc. It was nice to have an insider's help to figure out all of the available options for island fun! Tim and the Wailua Bay View are real gems! You can't go wrong with this place!

Room Tip: The 3rd floor has excellent views! Try to towards the middle or end away from the road. #308 to 315...

Love this great condo!! Jim and Crystal have made #214 a real home. It was quiet and so peaceful. The condo is sparkling clean with absolutely everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is missing nothing....it even has BBQ tools. A closet contains beach towels, cooler, bags for beach things..even sunscreen. You will find movies, CDs, books, tour guide material, Internet connection and even binoculars. Ladies, you don't even need to bring your hair dryer! The bed is a Five Star...soooo comfy!! All the other furnishings are beautiful. Great beach within a few steps and a wonderful pool. The condo is centrally located on the East Shore with places to go in all directions. The view from the balcony is spectacular. The ocean is right there! We would always return to this same place. It is Paradise. Pat and Gary

These apartments are amazing. Ours were on the third floor and had the best sea views I've ever seen. You look out on a sea of blue and a bit below a golden sandy beach with palm trees. It's the stuff of dreams really. There's a quirkiness to the place that's cute. It feels like it was built in the 70s or 80s and is actually quite becoming. It's easy to get to the beach or you can swim in the nice pool. It's also really handy that there are shops directly back across the road plus a couple of restaurants (Monicos Taquerias is particularly good). We found our room really nice. It's homely but really very comfortable rather than super fancy. It certainly had everything we needed. The staff were very polite and friendly. A special bouquet for the cleaner who was a very nice lady. We had a lot of fun here during our couple of days. We'll return very happily one day.

We recently had a wonderful trip to Kauai and stayed at the Wailua Bay View condos in unit 214. The condo was very cozy. It was well equipped and we loved the location. The balcony was one of our favorite spots to enjoy. The location of the condo allowed more privacy then expected and it was nice to have no other sounds but the ocean. We loved our entire stay and wish we could have stayed longer.

Our stay in Kauai was absolutely incredible, but being able to come home every night to the beautiful lanai view from Wailua Bay View #204 made it all the better. Not only was this condo incredibly well maintained with clean, open, airy rooms, but we had everything (including snorkel gear, coolers, beach towels and beach chairs) we could imagine available for our use. Our days were definitely full (and easily accessible from the condo's central location on the east side of the island), and it was always such a relief to know we could come home after our busy days to open the lanai and just unwind.

Noise from the main road was definitely not a problem as we just opened the lanai doors at night to hear the waves roaring and turned on the air conditioning in the bedroom when we went to sleep.

Tons of restaurants are nearby (particularly the famous Brick Oven Pizza across the street!) and a grocery store is less than a mile down the road. Honestly, there was absolutely nothing else we could have asked for.

We would highly, highly recommend staying at Chuck's condo in Kauai and greatly appreciated all the island info he sent prior to our departure. Staying at his place provided us a wonderful home base for what proved to be the best vacation of our lives!
