“Great location - nice place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2009

I read a lot of reviews on this place before we left. I was a little nervous after reading some of the reviews - but I think overall it's a great place.

Pros: Beach access, close the airport, close to many restaurants and beaches, very easy to find and clean.

Cons: A little outdated and the maids didnt' come very often.

We stayed at the beach villas for 3 nights and then moved to the Wyndham Bali Hai villas in princeville for the remainder of our stay. Feel free to check out my review of that place! I wish we could have stayed at the Kauai beach villas the entire time. You really can't go wrong with the location. The beach access is another great plus.

As far as the complaints about the roosters - don't go to Kauai if you are going to complain about roosters. They are all over the island - no resort on Kauai should be judged based on the sound of roosters in the morning. And honestly, we were on the ground level and we really didn't hear them that much.

Overall this is a nice place to stay.

I’ve just returned from my first visit to Hawaii, and a highlight was the week spent at condo # G-6, Kauai Beach Villas. We found the location ideal, with easy access to shops and restaurants (our favorites were Kintaro, Pacific Island Bistro and Caffé Coco), the delightful walk along the shore to the outstanding facilities offered at neighboring Lydgate State Park, and the proximity of Kauai’s diverse attractions on both North and South shores. The gracious accommodations exceeded our expectations – the elegant furnishings and linens, up-to-date appliances and internet, and very comfortable bed made our stay most enjoyable, as did the ease of check-in and reservations. We had an excellent experience with this rental, and recommend it without hesitation.

We recently spent a week at Kaua'i Beach Villas followed by a week in Princeville. We were so happy that we chose to stay there as it was very convenient for seeing the Southern & Western parts of the island. Also, most planned activities start near Lihue. We stayed in a one bedroom, 2 bath (F-5) that was in excellent shape. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and our unit was very clean and most likely had been updated as it had new hardwood floors, toilets, and stove. The furniture was very comfortable. There was an air-conditioner in the bedroom that we did not use because the trade winds were sufficient. We did not participate in any resort activities because we were too busy sight-seeing. People always mention the motor bike dirt track next door, but the only time it was used was on Saturday and they were done by late afternoon. We were out sight-seeing anyway during that time. We took a Blue Hawaii Helicopter ride (amazing!), did the Kipu Falls Safari with Outfitters Kaua'i, both being a very short drive from the resort. The first day we drove to Waimea Canyon, Koke'e State Park was clouded over, so we went back the next day to look out over the Na Pali Coast and the views were incredible! That was well worth an extra day of going back up, but we probably would have not driven all that way again from Princeville. If you plan to go to Waimea Canyon, drive yourself because the buses don't stop many places and don't go up to the Koke'e look-outs. We ate at the Shrimp Station, Waimea Brewery, & had shaved ice at Jo-Jo's during our excursions there. We also went to Kauai Coffee Plantation for abundant tasting. We ate at Monicos Taqueria and Duke's but also cooked in the condo. The Safeway and Food Land were very close. We went to the Farmer's Markets, but there is very little produce available this time of year. We took the Allerton Garden tour, which was amazing. If you choose to do that, make sure you get your tickets early. Our tour was completely full. We also played golf at Kukiolono Golf Course. It is a 9 hole 36 par course with amazing views! It was a real bargain too at $9 a round plus $3 for pull cart! This resort is so convenient, that I would highly recommend it to anyone who is going to Kaua'i to see the sights, kayak, hike, and really experience the island. If you have already been there and only wish to hang out at the beach, then the other areas would be fine for you choosing the area depending on the time of year.

This was our first trip to the islands and we did want a beach view. We stayed in G-6 at the Villas and got an excellent view off our balcony! The room was clean and looked exactly like the pictures we were shown to rent it. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook, washer/dryer, hairdryer, they provided beach towels, boogie boards, snorkle gear, and beach mats! I thought that was a nice touch!
The location was excellent, easy to get in and out of, in the middle of the island, and the beach was the best walking beach we found, we went to most of them! We saw whales from the beach each morning we went out to see the sunrise!
No it's not the Hyatt (one of the nicest places on the island, and you will want to go eat there!) but we didn't pay to stay at the Hyatt, and were very happy with our villa!
The agency and staff were helpful and we were greeted in our room with fresh flowers, candy, nuts, cookies, and coffee from the area!

  • Liked — Location & beach
  • Disliked — There is a 4-wheel/motorcycle park next door, but when we'd come back after sightseeing, they were leaving!

Well, we come to Hawaii every year an we own timeshares with Wyndham(not at Kauai Beach Villas). This was the first time we were at this resort. Being at numerous Wyndham locations, this was somewhat a letdown. However, I think they are in the process of making changes. I know part was owned by Pahio, etc. To get to it all, it does have large units and a decent lanai. It is outdated a bit, but it definitely is livable. The rooms have all the amenities with kitchens, washer dryer, etc. The pool is hideously small along with the hottub. It sounds ridiculous to say that the pool is not heated because you are in Hawaii. However, the weather gets very chilly at night and the pool never warms up. Picture immersing yourself in a bathtub filled with only the cold water faucet. Needless to say not many people swim unless it is extremely hot out. People complain that the roosters crow all the time, yes they do. Shut your windows if that is a problem. Chickens run this island. The dirt race track only goes on weekends. Who sits in their room all day to hear it? It is not that bad I don't think. There is a lagoon out in the middle with cute ducks and black swans swimming. Very entertaining if you get a unit with that view. The grounds are kept nice, and the staff is personable.The airconditioning in the bedrooms are sticking out onto the lanais from the bedrooms. They are all rusted, and there is paint and ick falling all over the lanai. The ones facing the ocean are absolutely gross looking and makes a person definitely not want to turn it on. I know, salt water does damage. I think that would be why they need central air. However, on this island you really don't need it. It is never too hot from my experience. So. all in all, it is okay. You are centrally located to get to the southern or northern end, and you are close to the airport. If I had someone questioning me if they should stay here, I would say yes, but don't expect high end or low. It is mediocre.

  • Liked — Centrally located, and the lagoon watching the ducks and swans
  • Disliked — No elevators for hauling stuff to top floor, and stuff is looking old and outdated

My husband and I loved the Kauai Beach Villas G-6. We stayed in this condo from 12/27/08-1/2/09 for our honeymoon, and we fell in love with the condo and the location. The condo is equidistant to the west and north sides of the island, which was perfect since we were exploring Kauai for the first time.

The condo was very clean, it had a great ocean view from the lanai, and everything was in great condition. I was very pleased that the photos and the description of the condo were accurate.
We really felt at home here--the condo was so comfortable and had every amenity necessary. The king size bed was cozy and comfortable. All the appliances in the kitchen worked well, and we found cooking enjoyable since we had all the pots, plates, and glasses we needed.

We also spent some time having drinks and lunch at the Hilton resort which is just a short 2 minute walk from the condo. It was nice that we could grab a drink or a meal there if we didn't want to head out. But we definitely felt that we were getting more for our money by staying at KBV versus the Hilton.

We also thought that Kauai Vacation Rentals was a very nice agency to work with. They have several units at Kauai Beach Villas, and if Unit G-6 is not available, then I would trust finding another good condo at KBV to rent from them. My husband and I highly recommend condo G-6, and we'll definitely be back!

  • Liked — Location, cleanliness, comfort, perfect!
  • Disliked — We loved everything.

The room we got was a one bedroom units with full kitchen, right on the beach! Very nice room with balcony overlooking the ocean. I found a Wal-Mart in town and stocked up for the week, very good idea. Excursions were great and affordable, take the kayaking / hiking trip to Waialua Falls (i am sure i spelled that wrong), it was awesome! The resort has no pool to speak of but who needs a pool when you're in Hawaii. The resort is also on the opposite side of most of the big hotels in Kauai, although there were great beached nearby. Great Time!!!!
