We stayed in condo #234 in Feb. for 8 days and heading back this coming July for 15 days. This condo is perfect and the bed is amazing! Clean, clean clean. The owners are great and easy to work with. The location is perfect and to be honest they could charge over $100 a night and get it easy. You won't e disappointed!

We rented condo #105 (first floor) through Kauai Vacation Rentals and are staying here a week. We wanted the first floor because we're divers and we wanted quick access to the car. This has been a great little condo, with everything you need in the kitchen, beach towels in the linen closet, even DVDs (for both adults and kids) to watch on TV. There's also a great selection of Maui guidebooks (hiking trails, sea life, etc.) that I used for planning day trips. There are laundry facilities that take credit cards (you just have to pay for detergent with quarters). There are also two BBQs onsite near the pool.

We spend most of our time (when we're not out) in the living room with the curtains wide open. We can look at the park next door, watch the chickens meander about (they are everywhere on Kauai), and see the snorkeling bay across the street. The dive shop (Seasport Divers) is five minutes away, which is super convenient, and the overpriced restaurant, Beach House Restaurant, is close too. Great place for drinks and appetizers. But that's why the kitchen at the condo comes in handy. You can save money making most of your meals here. There's a "Whole Foods-type" market up the street, and a regular market a couple of miles away where you can get everything you need.

Check-in was super easy. Kauai Vacation Rentals left the keys for us at the car rental counter.

Overall, we are very pleased with this rental.

My husband and I spent part of our Kauai vacation here in #136. It was perfect! The unit is at the end, away from the road, so very quiet and easy loading and unloading from the parking garage. The grounds are lovely and the BBQ area very clean and well maintained. The unit itself was very clean and cozy and also well stocked with not only all the kitchen items you could need, but also lots of towels, beach and bath. Beach chairs, snorkel gear, and such. We had stayed our first part of our trip at the Marriott which was also lovely, but we so enjoyed the Prince Kuhio #136, we will make it our main destination for many years to come!

This is a great condo, and this unit is one of the larger ones in the building. It is spacious and well appointed. It has everything you need for a great stay in Kauai...beach chairs, snorkel gear, pool noodles, a big flatscreen TV, full laundry, nice big kitchen, and a comfy bed.
I love the pool at this place, and the garden that surrounds it. It is lush, and exotic. You can tell it is cared for really well. You could wander around just counting the different types of palms. There is also an orchid that smells exactly like grape soda! The fountain in the koi pond can be heard from the front of the condo, and the surf can be heard from the back. This is a nice little benefit to this unit.
The best snorkeling on the island is right across the street, about a 30 second walk. This is also where everyone shows up to watch the amazing sunsets. There are also 3 good surf breaks in the same area. If your rental car got a flat tire...you could still have a great time on foot.
Overall, this place is a bargain. It has everything you need. I highly recommend it.

The location is convenient but very noisy as a tremendous amount of traffic passes by this property on the way to two popular destinations, The Beach House and Spouting Horn. And since there is no AC you cannot shut out the noise or the lights from passing cars without cutting off your air flow, so it was very difficult to sleep. The kitchen ceiling fan was wobbly and noisy, the screen door to the back patio stuck and was very difficult to open/close, and there seemed to be an electrical problem with the bathroom light switch. If a window AC unit was installed, as other units had and other necessary repairs were made, it would be very quiet and comfortable. Besides that, we were very pleased to find beach chairs, beach towels, a boogie board, cooler, washer/dryer and a well-equiped kitchen to make us feel at home.

Room Tip: Lots of traffic and street noise; earplugs are not enough.

We spent a week at Prince Kuhio Resort #211 and are 100% satisfied. The suite is well appointed, maintained, equipped and squeaky clean. The full kitchen is fully equipped for cooking. Ample and comfortable living/dining area. The bedroom is comfortable and large.

Don't be scared off by a lack of air conditioning. The front wall louver system combined with the sliding screened lanai door in the bedroom provides a cross ventilation powered by the constant ocean breezes.

The condo owners, Jack and Dorinda live at this resort and are helpful and friendly.

The all-glass bedroom wall with balcony overlooks the Prince Kuhio Park, the site of the home of Prince Kuhio, the last royalty of the Hawaiian kingdom.

Closeby beaches, supermarket, interesting shops, good restaurants and unbelievably scenic drives makes this place a great home base from which to explore Paradise.
