This was our second visit to the Waipouli Beach Resort but our first time staying in unit #D102. Although the last unit was equal in the amenities provided, this unit was much more conveniently located. The building is adjacent to the lobby, which makes it easy to access your car in the parking lot, and not having to use the stairs or elevators is a plus when traveling with seniors and juniors (grandparents and kids). It also made it easy to access the pool area via the sliding door and it was surprisingly quiet with very little (if any) foot traffic passing your unit. This unit comes equipped with everything you would need if you wanted to cook a meal--except the food--and they had a regular coffee maker with a couple of starter coffee pods for a single serving. There is also a Keurig coffee maker in the pantry, so bring some of your own K-cups from home or buy some from the grocery store across the street. Bath, face and hand towels are provided as well as shampoo, soap, and a blow dryer. They also have beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, and a cooler to use while staying here, which we definitely appreciated. During low tide, the beach fronting the property is great for exploring the reefs and swimming. The property manager, Candace, checked in with us to make sure everything was okay and she let us know that we could easily reach her via phone, text or email if we needed anything. Our family had an amazing experience here and it was sad to leave. We'll definitely be back.
This was our second trip to Kauai and we returned to Waipouli Beach Resort. It was a no brainer....great location (Safeway, Starbucks and ABC store across the street and right beside the ocean) and a great comfy clean condo. We needed a 2 bedroom this trip as both our adult children were coming so we rented a 2 bedroom (last year was a 1 bedroom) with a Sofa bed. The beds were all very comfy including the sofa bed. The decor is so Hawaiian and tasteful....just as it is in the pictures. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly want or need. There was even a Kuerig machine. I have nothing but good things to say about this resort. The only problem with the suite was that with they screen doors that were hard to open but that is the only problem that we had. We understand that with the salt air and moisture the screen doors all over the island have the same problem. Seriously though I would give this condo and resort top marks. You will not be disappointed. If you book through Kauai Calls - they will take care of everything. Wonderful!

We have been coming to Waipoli since the resort opened and stayed in multiple units. This was the first time in a ground floor unit. We loved it. It is just down the hall from the main lobby, close to parking and almost right across from the front entrance to the pool area. Large shrubs between the walkway and our patio/green space provided plenty of privacy. Extra bonus was the updated furnishings and high end kitchen. One of the nicest we've stayed in. Kapaa is well placed with drives to Hanalei and Poipou about the same distance. Nice restaurants and right on the bicycle/walking trail that you can take all the way to Anahola. Highly recommend
