First, I would strongly recommend that the owner replace the sofa in the living room as it definitely sagged so that when you sit you feel like you are in a hole.
Second, Unless you just want to eat while at the resort and over pay for the food and deal with the arrogance of the wait staff, I would not recommend the restaurant on property. There are, however, numerous restaurants in the immediate area to more than satisfy your appetite and your budget.
Lastly, after staying here we went to Kona, Hawaii to another 2 bedroom condo. I wish we could have brought this unit with us even with the comments mentioned earlier.
To summarize, I would recommend this condo, this resort and this location.
The management company was very responsive. During our stay there was a strong storm and the AC unit stopped working. They answered within minutes and made sure to fix the problem promptly.
My only critic is that the apartment is expensive but it really offers a great stay.
We also had a great time at Oasis. Brian, Julia, Gail, and Jeff made us feel so at home -- like new friends instead of paying guests.
The property is centrally located just outside Kapaa town, and there's a complex with a Safeway and an ABC store across the street. Warning: it's a very long stoplight. But that's truly one of the only drawbacks.
We'll see you again, H202!
Josh went above and beyond to make our stay magical.
We were staying at a hotel next door and so disappointed.
We called Josh on the evening of Monday and within a few minutes he had a room for us on the gorgeous property.
He went out of his way to drive to where we were staying and he personally picked up our luggage and us and drove us to Waipouli Beach Resort. We think he is one of the nicest and kindest people we have ever met. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and our three days on this property made our celebration more than wonderful. Thank you, Josh, for everything you did to make our stay complete. The restaurant on property, Oasis, offered delightful meals and the servers were all so friendly. We will come back here again and again.
We have never been disappointed.
A few gripes:
-WiFi wasn't as fast as we were expecting, but manageable.
-The showers need some attention. Don't get me wrong, they are clean and definitely nice! But, the one leaks a lot of water onto the floor outside and SOAKS the floor mat or whatever you may have sitting there. And the other one the shower door seal is coming off, which will eventually cause a leak.
My wife got on my case about the floor being wet outside the shower after showering after a night of drinking. I guess she thought I left the door open and showered? But then after HER shower the next day it happened again, and I said "see, told you, it wasn't me!"
Very well stocked room, nice appliances and furniture. Would definitely stay in this room again!
The space was great for hosting our neighbours for cocktails and the kitchen was well equipped.
We did have smokers below us for one day - smoking outside. Never reported since they were gone the next day.
Response from Kauai Exclusive Management LLCThis guest was obviously very happy if you read their review. This was a mistake and is not fixable on our end as they gave us low scores thinking that we were # 1! We appreciate the kind words and thank you for being our guest! Mahalo, Kauai Exclusive Management
The Condo was very clean, with modern appliances. We will definitely consider staying here on our next trip to Kauai!
(1)The resort is beautiful. They put a ton of resources/manpower into the grounds, and it shows.
(2)Layout of the pool is dreamy. Such a great place to spend lazy days swimming/sunning/reading/visiting.
(3)Can’t pick a more central location from which to explore the whole island, and the convenience of being across the street from a major shopping complex is huge.
(4)We had a great unit with a nice view of the beach/ocean, Oasis (good people watching including two weddings), and some of the pool area from the lanai. We ate all our stay-in meals out there, except during rain. Also, great kitchen fully stocked with appliances/utensils/cookware, and good washer/dryer.
(5)Friendly and helpful staff in general.
The Bad (these are minor complaints, but worth noting):
(1)Cleanliness upon arrival was so-so. Fridge/freezer should’ve been cleaner, and we found peanuts under one bed and candy wrappers and a soiled toddler outfit (!) behind the other.
(2)Pool staff can be a bit militant about kids’ toys in the pool area.
(3)The phones in our unit were very spotty – never were all of them working at the same time. Also, the seal under one of the shower doors was bad, and the floor got soaked every time we used the shower.
(4)I contacted Kauai Exclusive Mgmt with questions before leaving for Kauai, and was given outright incorrect info which turned out to be a huge inconvenience (e.g., was given the wrong ph. # in the unit which created all kinds of problems for family trying to contact us, and was told there was no snorkel gear or beach gear in the room – there were lots of both – and so we brought our own from home unnecessarily).
Overall we were very happy with the unit and resort, and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
(1) The resort is beautiful. A great deal of effort goes into maintaining the grounds, & it shows. (2) The pool is awesome, especially for kids. (3) Kapa'a is probably the best place on Kauai from which to explore the whole island. It was a huge convenience being across the street from a major shopping complex. (4) H202 is very nicely furnished. It has a full working kitchen with lots of cookware and great appliances, as well as a washer & dryer. Also, we had a great view of the beach/ocean from our lanai & we ate most of our stay-in meals (except when it was raining) on the lanai. (5) Staff were generally friendly & helpful.
(1) Unit cleanliness upon arrival. The fridge/freezer hadn't been cleaned thoroughly. We found peanuts under the bed in one bedroom, and candy wrappers and a soiled toddler outfit (!) behind the bed in the other bedroom. (2) There were three phones in our unit and they never all worked at the same time. (3) Before our arrival I asked Kauai Exclusive Mgmt if there were beach toys and/or snorkel gear in the unit, to which the response was no. There was tons of snorkel gear in one of the guest bedroom closets (we brought our own, unnecessarily). I also asked for the ph # in H202 & they gave us the wrong # so for the entire stay whenever family tried to call us they got a "not in service" message. It was only after we left Kauai that we discovered the # we were given was wrong. (4) The rubber seal under one of the showers didn't work, which left the bathmat & tile floor soaked every time we used the shower. (5) The pool staff can be a bit militant about kids using toys in the pool area. We had some diving toys (for my daughter) that fit in my swimsuit pocket. When one of the pool staff saw them, she said we weren't allowed to use them. We had been using them for days up to that point, but she wouldn't budge.
On the whole, a really nice place to stay especially for families with kids. We would stay there again,
It's furnished and equipped with everything you need to feel like you're at home! We didn't want to go back home after staying there....LOL!
We definitely plan to return.
Would have been helpful to know in advance that the unit had snorkel gear as we brought our own, but overall a very nice unit. Pool and ocean views were great. Brita water filter was a nice touch as well. Central location of complex is great for overall isalnd enjoyment as well. Would definately recommend this unit in particular.
Mahalo nui loa Kauai Exclusive Management.
John and Merry Whitten
On arrival it was very apparent that the housekeeping hadnt been properly done or completed. Supplies were missing etc.
Josh was very responsive to addressing our concerns. He was a wonderful host and loaned us folding beach chairs so we could comfortably spend time at other beaches on the island. Mahalo!!!
Response from Kauai Exclusive Management LLCA true management and cleaner mishap and truly chalked up as a learning experience! We compensated the guest and resolved the issue on day #1. Though the room was clean there had not been a IN cleaning of the windows or amenities delivered. H202 is a very special room though a few of the furniture pieces have hit their 4 year life span.. These items have been replaced. I LOVE THIS ROOM! Aloha Joshua
Vacations just don't get better than this!
1) One of the sets of folding blinds in the living room area was defective when we arrived. (Already discussed with Josh and I understand that model are to all be replaced.)
2) Spent about a half hour trying to connect to "Waipouli Beach Resort" wireless network, without success. Laptop would actually connect to that network, but would never get an IP address, DNS settings, etc. But was ultimately successful connecting the wireless network named "ResNet" or something like that. I suggest that the welcome sheets indicate what wireless network to use to save some aggravation for other guests.
3)Lighting was suboptimal. One of the floor lamps in the living room area didn't work, or at least we couldn't figure out how to make it work. In general the interior lighting was somewhat dim and limited - would suggest some brighter bulbs in a few spots.
4) Middle front burner on the range top didn't seem to work. We were able to use the other burners for our needs. It might have just been us, but this is something that should be checked out.
None of these issues impacted our enjoyment of our stay at WBR. We had a great time and just mention this for future improvements.
The Waipouli Resort is lovely and the location is perfect.
Response from Kauai Exclusive Management LLCWe are #1 for this renter! Unfortunately they meant to give us a 5!! I have tried to have TA resolve this with no success.
Thanks for the great stay.
One thing about the accommodations -- despite what the listing says, only one bedroom has a king bed; the other is a queen (+ a queen pull-out sofa).
Your request has been sent. We look forward to meeting all your vacation needs!
