About Shayne

I live in Toronto Canada but have been visiting Kauai regularly since I was a child. There is no place on earth like Kauai, and I invite you to come enjoy this little piece of heaven of which I am so proud.

Shayne purchased this condo in 2013

What makes this condo unique

Being midway between the north (Hanalei) and south (Poipu) shores of Kauai makes this location the perfect stepping-off point for all of the tourist attractions on the island. The town of Wailua, and nearby Kapaa, provide visitors with all the conveniences you may need, many of which are within walking distance of the Wailua Bay View Apartments.

A lovely ocean view with the soothing sounds of the breaking waves.

  • 4 of 5

Our host made it very easy to locate the property and provided appreciated detail to gain access to the unit and many of the local amenities. The unit was well equipped and offered a welcomed home to return to from our day's activities. The balcony overlooks the bay and we enjoyed our time with the accompanying views. The bedroom was air-conditioned which made a restful sleep.

Great affordable location

  • 4 of 5

This is actually a great condo with a great view of the ocean

Pros:

Central Location

Ocean view

Washer Dryer

Well kept/clean

Quiet

Walking distance to some great eats (street burger, brick oven pizza, kintaro, 2 pastry spots)

Comfortale

Worth the price

Cons:

There wasn't clarity on the check in/ check out times. When we got there around 1130 am we registered our car and the guy told us he wasn't sure if we could check in yet. There was nothing in our paperwork about that and he didn't clarify what time check in was (but he was friendly). Luckily we were able to go in (the cleaning lady was there but we just chatted).

Because there weren't details on check out, we thought leaving around 1130 would be fine - but the cleaning lady showed up, knocked on our door around 10, and basically barged in when we answered. She started doing laundry agreed to come back in an hour so we could get dressed and load our car. Very nice woman but the whole thing was very confusing.

The towels smelled mildewy so we had to rewash them. Pretty sure someone left them in the washer and forgot about them.

The bedroom window faces the main road so it's loud. We just put a fan in front of the window so we could drown out the noise and keep the windows open for air instead of using the AC.

The beach it is on is not very clean. Lot's of trash and debris. But you can watch a lot of windsurfers. For swimming I would go to another location.

*We would stay here again because of the location and affordability.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! I'm sorry that there was confusion regarding your check in and out times. That certainly can lead to an uncomfortable departure :( Check in and out times are detailed in my confirmation of payment document. I send this document once I have received your final payment, and try to include some great tips to help you plan your stay on Kauai! In your case, this was sent 34 days before your arrival. I encourage all to print this document for reference upon arrival. We always try to accommodate our guests' schedules where possible. Our default check in time is 3pm and our check out time is 10am. I think you will find this to be fairly similar to most accommodations around the world. I try to avoid having too many signs or postings in my units, as I want my guests to feel like they are in their own home during their stay, but if this becomes a common complaint, I will definitely post more information for clarity. The fellow you met in the parking lot was our Property Manager Tim. While he is friendly and will often stop for a chat, he is not responsible for assisting in the operation of our units. This one-bedroom condominium is a true owner-managed rental. Unlike a hotel, we do not have an extensive support staff on duty. I think this is where VRBO shines as an opportunity to be a little more independent in exchange for a great ocean front property at a fraction of the cost of a hotel room! Thank you VRBO!

Better than Expected

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our choice of this location. We were traveling on a budget and this was right on target. With that in mind, we had noted that the reviews for this location, and also noticed that the cabinetry and interior were not "updated". This was fine with us. We had viewed all photos, so felt we knew what to expect.

You can imagine our surprise when we discovered we were practically on the beach...

For us, this was the ultimate! We slept on the sofa bed with the sliding door open so we could hear the ocean all night! Sounds crazy as you know sofa beds are not that comfortable, but we did not care.

Condo was clean. We were able to cook meals, wash clothes, and enjoy the beach. We ate and spent evenings on the balcony watching the beach and ocean.

We hope to return some day and highly recommend this condo.

The Condo is well kept, clean, nicely decorated and offers many amenities. Wonderful beach view!

  • 5 of 5

We are delighted with our stay at the condo and hope to return someday. The interior was well kept, well supplied and a blessing. The location next to the beach provided a breathtaking view of the ocean, sky and beach. A great place to vacation!

Disappointed in quality

  • 2 of 5

Owner is very nice to deal with! Prompt with replacing beach chairs that were rusted and beach towels that were worn out. Got them that day! Location of condo is wonderful in relationship to traveling the island. Grounds are clean and pool is great. Unit is very very clean. Kitchen well equipped. Overall - very outdated and worn out linens for bedroom and bath towels. Unit is close to road and very very noisy for sleeping. Bedroom wall a/c unit of course is noisey as it has to be - but it is loud. Ceiling fan had a baring issue. But I am sure he will fix that as he is wonderful to deal with. I would rent at this complex again - but.not at this unit. Too noisy for us and bedding needs updating. Property manager Tim is so unfriendly and borderline rude.
