Kapaa, HI, United States

On the East Side of the Garden Isle, between the historical towns of Kapa'a and Wailua, is a beachfront heaven unlike any other. It is a place where Hawaiian kings and high chiefs sought solitude, famous filmmakers captured their most prized backdrops, and Hemingway found inspiration. Now it is your turn. Waipouli Beach Resort and Spa. Ka Hale Lihi Kai in Hawaiian (The Home by the Water's Edge) is a perfect, private beachfront getaway for a couple or small family with one bedroom (spacious king master with ocean view lanai, living room with queen sleeper sofa) and two bathrooms. Relax with your morning coffee while enjoying the dramatic sunrise over crystal, turquoise water or winter whale watching right from your lanai; take a leisurely beach walk on the private beach, swim or snorkel in calm, clear waters. Wapouli Beach Resort and Spa located along a lovely stretch of Waipouli beach on the East side of Kauai, this condotel is the perfect launching spot to see all the many destinations on Kauai- or the perfect place to curl up with a good book and go nowhere at all... full kitchen, charcoal BBQ in the pool area, washer and dryer, TV/cable, VCR/DVD.

We visited July 2011, we love this property and the location - it is in the middle of both North Shore and South Shore so you can visit both sides of the island, just like we did. This condo has a lovely restaurant where we enjoyed small plate cuisine...very tasty and a great location to sip cocktails and enjoy the sunsets. Please don't forget to visit one of the local bike shops, we very much enjoyed renting bikes and biking along the coconut coast up to Anahola...so much fun, so relaxing and so beautiful. We want to make Kauai an annual experience...this island is our unanimous family favorite. This is our second trip to this condo, it was like coming home. Working with Vadim is a breeze, he is so responsive, I have great confidence in our transaction; especially enjoy the payment system set up, very easy to use and I just feel very secure about the transaction. We hope to be back this year.

The condo was beautiful, clean and tastefully decorated, exceeding our expectations. Ocean view is from a distant and best seen from the balcony. The pool area is nice but fairly crowded. One large group occupied the end area of the pool (nearest the ocean) almost everyday and it didn't seem like they were guests. Perhaps friends and/or family of one or more of the staff???

The resort was beautiful - the condo beautiful as well. The day we arrived, we were, however, locked out of the condo. Could not gain access, and we had just flown in and were tired. After about an hour with management's help, we were finally able to get in.

This condo was a wonderful place to stay in Kaua'i. The beach at the condo is SO great to relax on as it is not crowded and loud and the lounge chairs they provide are comfy. The fine art made the condo feel more like a home than a hotel room which was a nice feeling for a two week vacation. The unit was very clean and a comfortable space for two. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was very handy. The location on the East coast was perfect for us because we wanted to do activities on the South, East and North coasts -- we were never more than 30 minutes from where we wanted to go. We really enjoyed how close it was to the Safeway grocery store and Starbucks. We thought we would make breakfast every morning but decided to walk accross to Starbucks almost every morning instead. We also found some great restaurants just a walk away: Tiki Taco, Shrimp Station, Brick Oven Pizza and Tropical Dreams Ice-cream (Best ice-cream I've ever had - they make it fresh there I think). We would definitely recommend this property.

We had an excellent time spending our honeymoon in this condo on Kauai in July 2012. The location was perfect. It was easy access to the North or South shores of Kauai. The apartment itself was very nicely decorated and clean. It was wonderful to fall asleep listening to the Ocean. It was nice that the room is facing the gardens and not the pool/restuarant. It kept things more quiet and relaxed. It was also nice that it came with washing machine soap, dishwasher soap and dryer sheets. It also had some spices. Additionally, there was beach chairs & mats, an umbrella, and a snorkel set. It had everything we needed, even dvds (although no dvds of movies that were filmed on Kauai, so we had to rent those). The only downside would be that since the condo's are built perpendicular to the ocean, you have to be on the right side of the rooms to see the ocean, unless you are on the decks. Other than that, everything was perfect. We would definitely recommend this to a friend and would stay there again. We enjoyed the pools, waterslides, and the waterfall cave you can swim under. Thank you so much!

We stayed here for the first half of our honeymoon - what an amazing place! It was immaculate and exactly as described on the website. Mike and Vadim were very easy to work with and very responsive - before, during, and after our stay. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the balcony overlooking the ocean! The keyless entry made it very easy to get around the property and not worry about losing the key! Pool was amazing! Workout facility was decent for the average person. The central location of the condo complex made it easy to get to both the north and south ends of the island. (definitely recommend having a car!) the complex was also across the street from complex with a grocery store, Starbucks, drugstore, etc. - very convenient as we purchased drinks, breakfast and some lunch foods to keep in the condo. The only thing I didn't realize was that the ocean just outside the condo wasn't really swimmable - the water was pretty rough. However, this wasn't suh a big deal because the pool was so amazing and we ended up driving to check out other beaches anyway. We watched some beautiful sunrises though!! We definitely would stay here again and would absolutely recommend this place to our friends. Thank you Mike an Vadim for being so courteous and easy to work with! We loved the condo and it was a great way to start our honeymoon!! Samantha & Doug Columbus, OH

We stayed for 12 days and had an amazing time! I can't say enough positive things about our experience. The owners were responsive and easy to work with, the unit was very clean and we received our damage deposit back promptly. There is a great view of the ocean from the living room and lanai. I had breakfast every day on the lanai and looked for whales. Despite the resort being almost completely booked, it never felt crowded. We had hot tubs to ourselves, walked the beach privately, got a great table and attentive service at The Oasis for happy hour, and swam in the pool/lazy river with just a few other people. We traveled with 3 other couples: two of which stayed at condos at the same resort and one at another resort. Of all of them, our condo was by far my favorite! There were extra odds and ends like chairs, snorkel gear, swim noodles, movies, etc that the other units didn't have which made the experience more homey. We had to leave a volleyball behind, so that is likely added to the collection. The other resort that one of the couples stayed at seemed very crowded and was a cruise ship stop. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! In fact, I was heartbroken to have to leave!

It is a beautiful condo, nicely kept up. The only problem we experienced was the air conditioning would shut off after a couple of hrs. Not a problem when you're awake and in the condo because you can just turn it back on, or if you're outside, obviously. However, it was a problem each night because a few hrs. after going to sleep, it would shut off and the condo would heat up. We woke up every night around 3:00 a.m. sweating and hot. One of us would have to get up and turn the air conditioning back on. So, as a result, we didn't get a good night's sleep the whole time we were there!

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers) stayed at this unit for 4 nights in July 2013. The condo is beautiful and had everything we needed. The location of the unit within the complex is great, near the pool but no pool noise, nice view of ocean, convenient to elevator. The location of the resort is also very convenient, right across the street from Safeway and various take out eateries. We highly recommend that you do the bike path that starts in Kapaa and goes north all the way to Donkey Beach. Being on the east side made it very easy to get to the north coast or to the south side. It is a bit far from Waimea canyon but nice day trip. The owners of the unit are very responsive and easy to communicate with. There is no better resort if you want to stay on the east side.

This is a lovely condo that is tastefully decorated and well maintained. The kitchen is beautiful! The location is perfect for exploring this island. The grounds of the property are kept up very well. Oasis restaurant on site was very good and so convenient. Overall a very good experience here. Our only downfall during our stay was the energy efficient thermostat...it did not allow the cool air to continue throughout the night. However, the owner was very responsive and brought in a fan for the bedroom. One more note...treadmill in exercise room was broken during our stay...reported to on site management but not repaired.

We have stayed in H305 for numerous years now - three to four weeks each time. The unit and the owners are great - meet all of our needs and we have not had any complants or problems whatsoever. Great unit with a partial ocean view. My complaint is with the Waipouli --- The new resort fee is rediculous - what is there?...... a pool?? Everyone has a pool - We spend all of our time at the great beaches around the Island, not on the grounds. For long term users like us spending 300 to 400 $ per trip on resort fees is rediculous -- and we will probably never return as long as the fees remain. It is also a pain to have to use an 11 digit code to get to the towel return, grills or pool - are they kidding ??

We stayed from 3-2-14 to 3-13-14. We could not have been more pleased. The condo is beautifully decorated with the mirrors that take full advantage of the ocean view. We were very surprised as to how complete the kitchen was equipped with almost any utensil you could possible need. Our daughter and family were in an adjacent building and our location provided excellent access to visit them. Being able to lie in bed at night and hear the waves was wonderful. The pool was marvelous and the work out area was clean and well equipped. We used the outdoor grills several times which we always find is a great way to meet people. On our next trip to Kauai, if we are staying in the Kapa'a area, we will definitely try to book this condo.

We stayed at this property for our wedding and the days around it and couldn't have been happier! The place was really clean and fully stocked with anything you could need (plenty of towels) and more (cards, games, boogie boards, beach chairs...). The pool/towel attendants were a little obnoxious (came around checking for wrist bands every 15 minutes; given you need a code to get in it seems a bit crazy they would even do wrist bands, let alone check all the time). That aside, the pool and hot tubs were great! We got married at the Oasis on the Beach (which was also amazing!) at the Waipouli and had >30 people staying there. Everyone was pleased with their accommodations. We are definitely planning on coming back and staying at the Waipouli if we don't buy a condo their first :)

What an amazing place to stay in Kauai. The condo itself is immaculate, spacious, beautifully decorated and immediately makes you feel at home. The resort is fantastic as well - if you ever need advice on what to do the front desk helped us out and got us great deals on some fantastic excursions and reservations/deals at local restaurants. Another thing to consider is the actual location of the resort on the island. Kapaa is right in the middle which means easy access to the north and south - we didn't realize at the time of booking but this was hugely beneficial. Whenever we return to this beautiful island, we will hope to stay in this great condo. Thanks Vadim!

It is my pleasure to give a review for this property! We were there from 11/11-11/18/2014. It was a beautiful place that exceeded our expectations! Let me say this, I'm pretty sure all the places at Waipouli Beach Resort are beautiful! From what I saw online and visiting our friends' rooms (who were also there the same time, staying in building A), they are beautiful. Same kitchen, bathroom, just differ on decor in bedrooms/living room. However, what stood out for us was the details. These owners had the small things that added so much. One thing we had that our friends didn't, was two different sized coolers. This small thing was huge when we were going out on our day trips and could pack water bottles and lunches. Also, our view of the beach was amazing! When it was time to sleep, we would open the patio door @ 4' and listen to the waves both going to sleep and waking up. That view was HUGE! Way better than being over by the pool or parking lot. And most importantly was the great service and communication with the owner. I was nervous at first and even called the property to confirm that he owned it. Mr Oss was then very helpful answering my questions and true to his word. He emailed me just like he said with confirmation and then details 2 days prior to our arrival and then refunded our security deposit the day after we left. He was very professional and true to his word. I will recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit the beautiful island of Kauai. Enjoy!

We have just returned from Waipouli Beach Resort, condo H305 and have only great memories of our time spent there. The condo itself was spotless, beautifully appointed with high end appliances and furniture and incredible artwork, and everything we could possibly want for a vacation. Although we ate some meals out we had many great meals prepped in the kitchen or at the communal BBQ's and enjoyed either at the dining table or the lanai while enjoying ocean views. (Food tip - the kauai shrimp bought at Foodland are amazing.) Vadim was great to deal with and his response time was very impressive. We felt Kapaa was a great choice for us as we loved the small town feel and easy access to both the south and North shores. We would highly recommend H305 and are already making plans to return next year.

We just returned from a 9 night stay at Waipouli and our first time visiting Kauai. My feelings on this condo are a little bit mixed. On the plus side, the unit was very clean, well-stocked, and had nice amenities including a beautiful kitchen, high-end bathrooms, washer/dryer and other conveniences. Vadim the owner was highly responsive both during the planning, and when we initially arrived. The complex sits on a nice stretch of beach with great landscaping, and with a shopping center across the street, it was super easy to walk to Safeway for groceries. On the minus side, we were disappointed with the view from the living area. There is a lanai off the bedroom which has an excellent diagonal view of the beach, as shown in the photos. But in the main living area, the only view is through a corner window which also has a divider in the middle, and really is only viewable when sitting at the dining table. The actual living room area faces the side of a building, with no direct sunlight, so the unit is somewhat dark and there's no view from the couch or kitchen. You're mostly looking in to other people's units. The living room couch was clean, but it's tired and mushy, perhaps time to replace. The bed was comfortable, but it too has been used a lot and there was a valley on my side. I think this is overall a nice condo, and may need a little updating. As for Waipouli, you should be aware of a couple of things....the beach is not for swimming or snorkeling as described in the listing - it's all shallow rocks/reef and though scenic, not for being in the water. The complex itself is very family oriented, so the pool area is teeming with kids and the three hot tubs are packed with people. The amenities like the fitness center and BBQs are a nice touch, but if you're looking for a quiet or adult-oriented environment, this isn't the place. I feel like we got a good price on the condo, and overall our stay was a positive experience.

If you want the amenities of a top Hawaiian resort - nice rooms, pools, ocean views and access, good restaurant, spa - but with the feel of "old Hawaii" (i.e., NOT Honolulu!), the Waipouli Beach Resort in Kapaa might be the perfect spot. Kapaa isn't all that built-up and tourtisty, more of a place with mom-and-pop shops, markets, and restaurants where you find the locals shopping and eating. There is a nice beach right at the resort (although this side of the island can get pretty windy with rough surf at times); some good public beach parks are nearby in either direction. Kapaa is a good central location just 15-20 minutes from the airport and harbor (lots of activities like flightseeing, boat cruises, fishing, etc. leave from that area), or to explore further it's maybe 45 minutes to either the Poipu or Princeville areas. This is a large and comfortable one-bedroom condo, pleasantly decorated with original modern art rather than the usual Hawaiian palm trees and pineapples motif. All the amenities you'd expect in a good resort hotel were there, plus some thoughtful extras such as beach chairs and coolers for our use. The kitchen was well-furnished with dishes, utensils, pots and pans, etc., which was great for our breakfasts of fresh fruit and especially appreciated after picking up the freshest fish ever at one of the local markets! Though we didn't spend much time at the pool, it's definitely something both kids and adults will enjoy, a 'lazy river' style with two water slides. Three large whirlpool spas are available also. All-in-all a very nice condo, in a very nice resort, in one of my favorite places in Hawaii.

The condo was lovely. Nice view from the bedroom balcony, quiet, luxury finishes. Bed wasn't the most comfortable for us - very soft - but apparently based on the reviews in their guest registry book it seemed some people loved that (but others were in our camp on that as well). Kitchen and bathroom basics were provided - paper towels, dish soap, laundry detergent, spices, oil, enough tp for the whole stay, even a hotel-like toiletry kit. We didn't make use of everything, but looked like snorkel gear, beach chairs, etc was in a closet, as well as some baby items in another. The resort was nice - pool was pleasant, plenty of lounging chairs, towels were provided. The restaurant onsite was lovely - we ate dinner once, and lunch once there. It was super convenient to have a grocery store across the street, as well as restaurants and casual carryout places, etc, within walking distance. We rented bikes from the resort to take along the walking/biking path out of convenience, but know if you do that you'll be paying at least double of the other places renting bikes. The path is accessible by heading out front of the resort (not from the beach as we first assumed...), head north on the wide sidewalk, then turn towards the beach to keep following the path after a block or so. It goes on along the coast for at least a few miles. A few blocks into the path, there is a beach that has a shallow wading area with a rock wall to keep the waves out. An easy walk as well if you want to find a place to dip. We also drove a few minutes south to Lydgate Beach park to swim. We've stayed in other areas of the island, and wanted to experience the east side. We definitely feel this condo was the perfect choice for that area.

My wife and I stayed at the Waipouli Beach Resort Ocean View Condo with Fine Art, and we could not have been happier with our choice to do so. The condo was immaculately clean, and the view from the lanai did not disappoint. If you look directly out from the lanai, you are looking at another building (though the view is not into other condos), but if you look just slightly to the left, you see the beach and the ocean. It's fairly spectacular. We left the sliding door open on most nights and fell asleep to the sound of waves crashing against the shore. The art pieces were a nice touch and made the condo feel less cookie cutter. Also, the bed was really soft and comfortable. We slept well, which is unusual for me because I normally have a really hard time sleeping anywhere but my own bed. The Waipouli Resort was really great. The pool is amazing, with a channel that winds around and connects various parts of the pool. There are plenty of lounge chairs to accommodate all of the guests, and they hand out towels poolside. Also, the restaurant in the resort has excellent food/service, and we enjoyed going there the few times that we did. Overall, the resort was lovely and quiet. We found Kapaa, where this resort is situated, to be a fantastic location. There was a lot of traffic getting in and out of the resort and a lot of traffic in Kapaa in general, but there were so many great restaurants and shops there that we felt it was worth it. If you decide to stay here, you have to try "Chicken In a Barrel." It's a tiny little shack of a place, but their food is SO good! They smoke their chicken, and it just falls off the bone. Their barbecue sauce is incredible! Also, although a bit on the pricey side, "Hemingways" offers fantastic food and terrific service. My wife says that the scallops she had there were the best she's ever had in her life (she's a big scallops fan and has tried them at many different places, so that's really saying something).

We just finished 10 days on Kauai in this condo and absolutely loved it and would recommend it to anyone ! We are already planning another trip for 2017 and absolutely want to stay here again. It was immaculate and was probably the best stocked unit we've ever rented, from kitchen utensils to towels,etc...It has a great kitty-corner, but still close beautiful view of the ocean from the lanai. We found Waipouli itself to be a perfect location. Steps from the beach and shopping and yet a great location to get to either Poipu or Hanalei. The owner made the entire process seamless as well. Leaving this beautiful spot and unit was the only difficult part of the trip !

Have visited Kauai and other Hawaiian islands multiple times throughout the years so very familiar with multiple properties. This resort is in a perfect location. Short drive to North Short - my favorite part of island -and short drive to South Short - driest and fastest developing part of island currently. I researched all of the one bedroom units in resort and this one was my top pick. The photos do not do it justice. It is classically beautiful! Very well managed and this is very important. Perfect unit in this resort. If they have availability - book it!!! You will not find a better unit as far as comfort, location, decoration, etc. The pool in this resort is wonderful and do not overlook the trees on beach which provide a canopy (like a beach umbrella) - superior!!! On our next trip back to Kauai I hope this unit is available.

The owner was very responsive in answering all my questions. The place was very clean and nice -- I felt right at home. The location is also very convenient. I would definitely recommend this place for small groups of friends, couples or small families.

Amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better starting point for all of our adventures. The condo was just as described, and then some. Vadim was responsive when I had questions, and made sure everything that was perfect. The beach at Waipouli is phenomenal. We visited many beaches on the island, but retired every evening for sunset on our our quiet, gorgeous beach. Sunrise was unmatched, and everything about the amenities was perfect. The food at Oasis was top notch, we ate there twice for dinner. The pool and gardens were fabulous. If I am lucky enough to come back to Kauai, this is where I will be!! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

My wife and I had wonderful time here on our honeymoon. The condo was very nice and well kept, the resort was beautiful and the owners were very prompt and responsive. The only detraction from this location is the rocky shoreline which makes it difficult to swim right off the beach behind the condo but there are swimmable beaches nearby. The traffic is also difficult at certain times because of the single road running around the perimeter of the island but this is unavoidable no matter where you stay really. Kappa is actually centrally located between points of interest all around the island so it works good as a home base for adventures. There were also beach chairs available for use in the closet which came in handy.

A VERY well stocked, equipped unit. Everything was supplied, from garbage bags, to champagne glasses, to cheese graters, to coolers, snorkel gear, movies, games, books, bakeware you get it. Follow the directions for the a/c and you'll be cool and happy. The grounds were well maintained and once day two hit, I understood the gates and life was good. They really do make sense and serve a good purpose There really is an ocean view from both lanais.

We like rest, relaxation and some recreation. We love ocean air and waves. I love cooking. This condo was ideal for us. When we had to leave after our two week visit we felt energized and sad to leave. The Waipouli Association folks were the responsive caring people you expect in the hospitality industry. The office is down the hall and not in the Lobby! The Outrigger with its "reception" area in the lobby is misleading and the staff there was the opposite. Someone described them as "not having hearts." So, do yourself a favor and disregard the concept of reception, there really isn't one since it isn't a hotel. The unit has a great owner and we thought everything went smoothly. The on-site restaurant has a tremendous wait staff person named Art. And the ground security detail has a woman named Cathleen. These two persons are worth looking up. Great personalities and very patient and entertaining.

The condo was as described. The view was great and as shown on the pictures. Location close to pool, but opposite side of building was perfect for us. The condo has a good washer and dryer and was very nicely appointed. Four of us stayed there and we had plenty of space in the living and bathrooms. They had very nice towels and enough of them. In the condo Sheila the local contact for the condo - from Sheila's Sunshine cleaning service - left a little welcome package with a few supplies (soap, shampoo, shopping bag, etc) for when we arrived setting a very nice tone for our stay. We found the hosts to be very good with communication. We did not need to contact Sheila during our stay. The resort is fabulous and very family friendly. The pool was amazing and the Oasis restaurant offered happy hour daily and half meal portions that were just the perfect size for dinner on the beach. Pool towels were available from the resort. The gym is decent. Location of resort is across street from TWO grocery stores, an ABC Store, and a Starbucks which met all our supply needs! We rented bikes and used the ocean -side pathway. Would stay here again and recommend to friends and family. Hawaii has banned plastic shopping bags so bring a few re-useable shopping bags or get them while you are there.

My family absolutely loved Waipouli and unit H305. We are already planning our return trip, hopefully in the near future. The unit, location and island all exceeded our expectations!
