“Great Location!”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We stayed at the Kauai Beach Villas in November 2013. We loved it! The location is perfect for touring the island. Half way between Princeville/Napali Coast to the North (about 45min) and Poipu/Waimea to the South (about 25 - 35 minutes). The grounds are very well-maintained. You drive through a beautiful Banyan tree tunnel to get to the resort. Being able to use the amenities at the Kauai Beach Resort (Pool and restaurants) is definitely a plus. The resort's beach is the perfect place to watch the sunrise in the morning and a for a short stroll. No beach activities (kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, etc.) - just beautiful, natural sandy beach. We were in the 2-bedroom unit (14D) on the ground floor. The condo buildings do not have a lift. There were 3-steps leading to the unit. Bldg D is farthest from the beach but it's only a few minutes walk. Our unit faced the Kauai Beach Resort lagoon so although it wasn't an ocean view, it was still nice. We enjoyed the morning visits by the roosters and chickens but they do leave "gifts" behind so beware. ;-) The fixtures, appliances and furniture were functional and comfortable but old and dated. There are A/C units in each bedroom but not in the living room area so it got a little warm there. If you plan to sleep on the sofa bed in the living room, it will be a bit noisy (icemaker, people upstairs, etc.) The resort provides starter kits of laundry detergents, soap, dishwashing detergents, sugar, coffee. If you stay a week with 6 people like we did, you'll need go shopping to replenish supplies. Speaking of shopping - you'll find several supermarkets in both Lihue and Kapaa towns. There's a Costco in Lihue. Both towns are about 10 minutes from the resort, depending on traffic (it can get really bad so be prepared!) We were a little surprised that we got a timeshare presentation push. We were not expecting that. If you like that, then it's a plus since they give you $50 (?) credit towards any activities you book through them. We did not participate so can't comment on that.

Room Tip: Building D is farthest from the beach and no ocean view. However, it faces the Kauai Beach Resort l...

Kauai Beach Villas is a great location as you are 45 minutes from Waimea Canyon
and 45 minutes to Princeville. We had a 2 bedroom oceanfront which was spacious, clean
and had traditional island type furniture in good shape. The air conditioners were a bit noisy but we were glad that we had them. The people at the from desk were very nice and the timeshare presentation was fine. We wanted to see the new addition in Princeville and went hiking in the area afterward. The hotel resort had a bar that also served food during the day and the inside bar and breakfast restaurant were also good. The wait staff very nice. I would return again as the location is terrific!

Large, clean albeit "golden girls" decor condos
Excellent central location- super easy to get to all other areas of the island since this is pretty much in the middle
Customer service was good- recommendations, offerings etc
Comfy beds
Quiet rooms.....that is if the A/C is NOT on
Beach is long and a gorgeous walk for miles directly in front of condos ( not swimmable )
Privledges at resort next door is just wha'ts needed when you want more of a pampered feeling versus a condo feeling
Usually stay in a resort/hotel when we travel but would stay here again for price & location

We stayed in a 2 bedroom on the second floor with one other couple. Our room was in a great location overlooking the small pool, which we used almost every day. The pool at the hotel next door (which we had the use of) was gorgeous, with a waterfall and grotto, and pool service. We enjoyed our small pool and hot tub, and brought our own beer and snacks.
The previous post by Hopsing-NH pretty much says it all as far as the condo itself.
We went to the morning meeting (activity explanations) and ended up booking the Napali Coast Catamaran snorkel trip, the Tubing down the old sugar plantation Irrigation Canal with Back Country Adventures, and the Kayak, hike, and Secret Waterfall trip, and thoroughly enjoyed them all.

Room Tip: We liked our location on the second floor in C11. It overlooked the small pool, and we could see th...

Was of course like most folks, bummed that our unit wasn't oceanfront. We could see the ocean from our living room and the lanai, and it was cool to see the sunrise from there. We were on the 2nd floor in a 2 bedroom unit. It had everything we needed, including salt/pepper shakers, dish detergent/dish washer soap, coffee filters and 2 packs of laundry detergent. The place is a bit dated but very clean. I was happy to see that each bedroom had a TV as well as one in the living room. A/C's only in the bedrooms, ceiling fans and we used a stand up fan found in a bedroom closet to move air from one bedroom into the living room. One great feature we found was a small cooler in the closet. We used the ice maker in the fridge and had cold drinks everywhere we went. The beach was good to sit at and we didn't use the on site pool or spa. We did walk over to the adjacent property and their pool was pretty neat. We actually enjoyed the chickens, mynahs and doves. We had 2 chickens on our lanai every day...peeking in the windows. We found the noisy guests to be more annoying...loud with screaming children. I wish people would realize that other guests are trying to enjoy the peace and quiet of this property!

Get View Condo-amazing beach sunsets & walk to beach from your lanai. Close to Costco/Walmart. BBQ area, walk to beach, foot rinse at door. Fully equipped Kitchen, coolers for day trips. Concierge Yoshi is fun and very helpful in planning activities for the week. Construction during our visit will only make it better for our next visit :)

Carrying our luggage up one flight was not a problem. My wife was still down by the rented car. My first words to her were, after I brought the suitcases inside, “You’re gonna LIKE this!!!” This certainly was even much nicer than our home resort. Very spacious and with well appointed décor, this apartment far exceeded our expectations. The place was big enough for maybe 6 to 8 people although a 6 person occupancy is probably more likely. Kauai Beach Villas is a good central location for doing day trips to visit this lovely island of Kauai. Having rented a car via KBV, we ventured north as far as we could on the east coast. The next day we did the trip on the west coast. Being an early riser I went to the beach, only a few hundred feet from our quarters, for some of the most beautiful sunrises ever. Small tidal pools provided safe walking in the water, but I wasn’t too sure I wanted to actually go into the ocean there. Evening dining was pleasurable at the adjoining Kauai Beach Resorts restaurant. Closely located to Kauai Beach Villas is the Lihue airport, with Kauai By Air. Flying in an Ultralight motorized hang glider is an exceptional experience, but that is another Trip Advisor review. Ellen and I are hoping for another visit to Kauai Beach Villas, perhaps in 2014 or 2015. Tom V E, NYC, NY
