About Natt Portugal

We are a professional married couple. We love beautiful places, nice people and good food and drink. We have traveled to many beach resorts around the world and decided to make our island home at Kapaa Sands Resort.

Natt Portugal purchased this Townhome in 2014

Why Natt Portugal chose Wailua

We have been visiting Hawaii regularly for over 35 years and have been to most of the nice resorts on all the islands. When we both walked into our townhouse #24 we both fell in love with our new home, its beachfront location and the convenience of having everything you need close by. Kapaa Sands gives you solitude and is not one of the large resorts with poolside bars. Many owners have owed their Kapaa Sands homes for 20 + year and many of our guests return year after year. Kapaa Sands is the most relaxing convenient resort we have been to in the islands. It is a 10 minute drive from the airport. Because it is located on a tropical shaded cove away from the Kuhio Highway it is quiet and you feel that you are in your own tropical paradise. Kapaa Sands is located in the area where a Shinto Temple was located and is built in the Shinto style. The famous Sleeping Giant can been seen from the front door. Our unit is 2 stories and gets great natural light. There is no one above or below our unit and we have windows on three sides of the building which keeps our home cool.

What makes this Townhome unique

Whether you want to rest and relax or enjoy all the activities and beauty Kauai has to offer you can do it from Kapaa Sands. We are located on the East Side of Kauai which is called the Coconut Coast. Our location is almost equal distance to Poipu and Waimea Canyon in the South and Princeville, Hanalei Bay and the Napali Coast in the North. We are located an easy walk to the Wailua River and all the activities it has to offer, ie kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, river trips and hiking. The famous Kauai Bike Path that runs along the beautiful East Coast is just out the front door. This is one of the most beautiful bike paths in the world. You pass by white sand beaches, restaurants and bars. Bike rentals are located nearby. We are located across the street from the Kinipopo Shopping Center. You can walk across the street to one of the two bakeries, a great Mexican restaurant, a gourmet Japanese Restaurant and a Korean Barbeque. There is a very good pizza restaurant and gourmet healthy food restaurant across the highway. These restaurants are frequented by the local people who like good food. We think that you will find the dining options better and more reasonably priced then the restaurants at the big resorts. Foodland and Safeway are located less than a mile away as well as pharmacies and any other type of store you may need. We are located less than a mile from the beautiful town of Kapaa. Kapaa was recently named one of the most beautiful cities in the United States by Forbes Magazine and was the only city in Hawaii to receive this honor. We are only about 10 minutes away from Home Depot, Costco, Sports Authority, Macy's, Kmart and Walmart. There are two medical centers close by both with emergency departments.

Do you want to stay where you will fall asleep to the sounds of the surf and where you can walk to the beach while you are waiting for your morning coffee and see if the whales, dolphins or turtles are visiting? In the mornings the red crested cardinals will greet you while you enjoy your breakfast on one of the two lanais. There are windows on three sides of the townhouse to take advantage of the cool trade winds and the great natural light.

                                                                      Susan S.

                                                                      Couch is old and dirty and terrible to sleep on, with springs digging into your body, we had to go to Costco and buy pad just to be able to sleep.(I did call the office and report this) There were roaches. Also no towel in the downstairs bathroom. The key to the pool did not work, (I also reported this) several other guests had the same problem. Not enough toilet paper.

                                                                      The pool was very nice and the garden was beautifully kept up.

                                                                      I have stayed here twice before but it has definitely gone down in service and accommodations, sorry to say.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      If you would have contacted me I would have had our local management company take a look at the couch. The couch is about a year old and this is the first complaint about the mattress. I will personally check it out and replace it if necessary.

                                                                      There we lots of towels in the upstairs bathroom. We are doubling the amount of towels we now give to guests.

                                                                      We will advise our onsite manager about the problem with the pool key.

                                                                      My family had an wonderful time here. The kids loved the pool, we BBQ - ed quite a bit on the new grills. Mom (me) loved the eastern view from the beach and enjoyed sunrise skinny dipping each morning. The location is ideal as it is close to creature comforts and outdoor adventures. The only thing about the property that was off putting was the lack of soap when we got there, but that was easily fixed by a trip to the store. As long as you don't expect a stocked property and are willing to go grab some of the basics then you will love this little house as much as I did. The fade-out chaise on the lanai was ideal for all night sleep and I spent most nights listening to the ocean under the full moon. Hope we can return soon!
