Overview

About the property

My 800 SF full condo King Bed, Living Rm. Sofa Bed, Full Kitchen, Bath, Sleeps 4

Aloha! My 142 avg 4.9 star reviews say it all. Guests return & recommend my NO SMOKING, 4 room, 1 king bdrm, 1 full bath, FREE WIFI, oceanfront resort upgraded home as a great place to stay! You get more than you expect or pay for! It may be the best deal on the Island

I'm not in the rental business. You use all my stuff I leave for you when I travel 40% of the year. It helps pay the $900 monthly association dues that provide all the facilities at no extra fees. I can usually adjust my schedule for most requests. I am one of the few private owners at the resort for 18 years. Its my full time home since 2013. Chris my 20 year friend, housekeeper & manager keeps it perfect.

Your 2nd floor partial ocean view 800 SF Unit # C 4 is not just a rental It is your home away from home & will provide you with a relaxing, comfortable, wonderful stay for your vacation, honeymoon or anniversary as it does for me when I come home.

Please note: Rates per night for 2018 are $159 & for 2019 $169.

Christmas - New years HOLIDAY December 15 - January 7 is $30 a night more 2017 - 2018- $179 a night & 2018 Holiday -2019 - $189 a night.

My home is a nicely decorated (at least I think so) & highly upgraded for myself & my guests. It has imported Italian Tile, Berber Carpeting, Solid Hand Varnished Mahogany Doors, Hunter Douglas Blinds, real wood cabinets, gourmet kitchen, granite counters & a 1 foot raised professional Speakman shower head for tall people.

You vacation with what I provide myself. 2 Flat Screen TV's, 2 Stereos, 2 DVD's, 2 Air Conditioners, 2 Air Purifiers & 2 ceiling fans. My home is treated for tropical mold & mildew every other month. I own the treatment unit. I have 2 FREE Internets. My private secured 50 MB & the resorts upgraded shared WIFI. It works away from the condo & makes a great backup if Time Warner goes down.

I leave my full kitchen, condiments, seasonings, all paper products (not starters), foil, baggies, soaps, shampoos, conditioner, laundry supplies you do not have to buy. There is a dozen bath towels, 620 thread count sheets & comforter set, beach towels, chairs, coolers & a play pen & high chair available. All the closets & dresser drawers are empty. I leave no clothes there. (This question comes up). I leave my first aid & sewing kit. The living room, kitchen, king bedroom, full bath & the separate double mirrored 3 light makeup vanity area are described further down.

You have my washer & dryer & all the soap & dryer sheets & the iron & ironing board.

THIS IS NOT A CONVERTED 300 SF HOTEL ROOM TO A STUDIO with a small refrigerator & microwave & a bunch hotel fee's.

Please read the MEDICAL WARNINGS, NO SMOKING POLICY, RACE TRACK & CHICKEN NOISE INFORMATION 1,2 3 & 4 at the end of this description.

The 2017 rate of $149/NT is for 2 people. Additional people regardless of age are $15 a night per person. 2 to 4 nights are OK when they are at the end or before another rental or my stays. There is a $50 management fee per stay 2 days or a month. A refundable $150 security deposit or buy VRBO's insurance coverage. Checkout cleaning fee is $110. Longer stays (over 10 days) have interim inspection & cleaning fees of $70.

Kauai Beach Villas is one of the most exclusive, well maintained & secluded Oceanfront Resorts on the island. it is a half mile off the main road & located on a 3 mile long secluded beach that runs from the condo by the adjacent famous Wailua Golf Course to Lydgate Park.

All facilities & parking are free & included in my HOA dues. Parking in front of my condo. There's a newly re-decked Pool & Jacuzzi. Newly resurfaced Tennis Courts, many BBQ's & great Beach Access. All within a 1 to 2 minute walk.

The Hotel is separate. They give a 10% discount on food at their facilities to my guests. They charge resort fees to their Hotel and all Condo guests to use their facilities. $20 a day for their pools, $10 a day for the gym or $42 a week. All Spa treatments are extra.

The resort is the most centrally located & convenient to everything on the island. Only 5 minutes from the airport, 5 - 10 minutes from either end of Lihue or Kapaa & half way either direction (30 - 45 minutes) to the North or South shores of Poipu & Princeville.

The $110 checkout cleaning fee is for up to 9 days. Over 9 days there are interim cleaning fees of $70. 10 days - 5th day, 11/12 - 5th/6th, 13/14 - 7th day. Longer stays repeat. This protects my home & ensures cleanliness for the next guest.

Your full living room has a remote ceiling fan, air conditioning, air purifier, queen sofa bed cushioned chair & ottoman, 32' Flat Screen LED HD TV & 74 channels, stereo, DVD, books & a few games with a small distant partial ocean view.

Your lanai has the same view, 4 chairs & 4 end tables that can be foot rests or grouped 2 or 4 together.

Your bedroom has a remote ceiling fan, air conditioner, air purifier, king firm bed with a 3' memory foam topper that can be removed for those who prefer to make it firmer. You sleep in 600 thread count sheets. There are 4 pillows 2 firm & 2 medium. You have a 24' Flat Screen LED HD TV with the 74 channels, DVD, stereo.

My large gourmet kitchen is better equipped than most homes. I like to cook & bake. There is filtered water at the sink & in the refrigerator & ice maker. Lots of pots & pans, baking pans, corning ware, fine china, glasses, wine glasses, lots of silverware, 2 knife sets & lots of utensils. Appliances include a full stove & oven, above oven microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, blender, hand mixer, coffee maker, espresso maker, coffee bean grinder, toaster, George Foreman Grill, waffle maker, popcorn maker, food processor, can opener, rice cooker, steamer & blender. There's lots of other stuff like a wine opener, mixing spoons &spatulas, full stove utensils, bowls, Tupperware & more.

There is a 4 cushioned chair separate dining area as well as a granite counter bar & 2 bar stools.

Your bath has brass fixtures, a bath tub & a raised Speakman shower for taller people. It's enclosed by floral brass trimmed sliding doors. There are a dozen great bath towels, hand towels, wash clothes, hair dryer, shampoo, body wash & an electric vent fan.

Between the bath & bedroom is a separate very well lit vanity / desk area with 3 lights, a full make up mirror & a full length wall mirror. An Ar-moire with 2 drawers & large closet provides extra storage. This area makes it nice to sit & do your hair or makeup or whatever while others are in the bath or bedroom.

For your trips to the beaches you have use of my rolling cooler that fits in a trunk or back seat, a cooler jug, 4 beach towels & one is extra large & 2 beach chairs.

There is NO regular telephone in the condo since 99% of people have cell phones & that added $15 a week to rentals & almost no one used it.

You get to use all my stuff, condiments, seasonings, foil, wraps, zip locks, laundry, dishwasher, hand, shampoo & body soaps, paper towels, toilet paper, tissue, small first aid kit, sewing kit & whatever else. Not starters & you have to go & buy stuff. You get to use everything I have & that saves you money. If you run out my housekeeper will quickly get you more, but that rarely happens as we keep my home well stocked.

The beach, swimming pool, Jacuzzi (whirlpool) & BBQ's are a 1 minute or less walk.

The beach has magnificent morning sunrises, the picture you see on my listing is one of hundreds I have taken. The colors are as lovely as they can get & change everyday.

The resort landscaping is beautiful. There are ponds, waterfalls, fountains, geese, ducks, flowers & foliage to enjoy everywhere.

You are 7 minutes from the airport on the only two lane island highway. This makes it a fast arrival & departure & adds time to your trip. No long drives to the North or South shores after a long tiring trip. For your departure you do not have to leave 4 or 5 hours before your flight to make sure there are no traffic jams or accidents on the one lane roads that cause you to miss your flight.

You are 5 minutes from Walmart in Lihue & 10 minutes from Costco & Macy's & 12 minutes from Kapaa' the best grocery shopping on the island.

I am honest, a Motocross race track is at the end of the golf course & makes noise (like chainsaws) on weekends & holidays. Hours are Saturday, Sunday & Holidays 10 am to 6 pm. The schedule link VRBO removed not allowing links. You can Google it at Kauai Motocross. Guests have gone to watch. It can be noisy & it is only fair you know. Labor day weekend are 2 days of racing & a banquet.

PLEASE read this location information:

1. Medical warnings for Microbial s. Tropical islands worldwide have mold & mildew. If you are sensitive or have allergies you may be bothered. Often people do not think about this when planning a vacation & dreaming of the islands. I remind people just to jog memories so no one gets sick. My condo is fog treated for these every 2 months & is as fresh & as mold free as possible.

2 West Nile Virus & Dengue Fever are present on the island. Use mosquito repellent cases have been reported.

3: Chicken Noise. May wake you up. They are all over the island & scattered during the last hurricane many years ago. Chickens are protected by law birds & aren't eliminated or sent to Foster Farms LOL!

4. SMOKERS of anything, even if you plan to smoke outside or on the Lanai PLEASE DO NOT INQUIRE, the answer is NO! Including cigarettes, cigars & marijuana. A medical card does not count to negate this. It's smoking! Yes, I know that it is idiotic that I even have to mention this. But LOL it has come up & joints have been left in the safe!. I do not want any smoke odor in my home. If you violate this & special cleaning is needed you will loose your deposit, be liable for any additional fees to eliminate the odor, court costs & legal fees. Yes, I'm serious about this. It's my home & I want it as perfect for my non smoking guests as for myself.

About Mounque Barazone

Aloha! I'm 68 years young (Photo is older). I still work & play hard. I am an inventor. My machines & tools for Geosynthetic's are used world wide. My small manufacturing company is 38 years old. I travel for consulting on construction projects, sailing & softball. My small shop is in Northern CA & most of my employees have worked for me between 20 & 35 years. I do not even think of moving my manufacturing to where it would cost less. My staff deserves to keep their jobs in the US. I use all US suppliers.

I am still an avid sailor & softball player. I have been on professional sailing teams & softball teams. I was a support staff member of 'Team Dennis Conner, Stars and Stripes Americas Cup Teams in the 1992 &1995. Yes that was me 20 years ago. I have less hair now!

I still sail & play softball in events worldwide when someone wants to bring in the old 'ringer'!. I played semi pro softball for 13 years in the 1970's & 80's. I have never lost my batting eye, just the legs do not work like they used to, but I am still pretty fast ! The photo is of a recent walk off tournament winning hit on a team with mostly 20 and 30 year olds!

For 30 years I was a well know sports trainer & therapist. I did this during Americas Cups & for other professional teams. I retired after a bad car accident in 2005 & some back & other surgeries over a couple years. I worked hard at my recovery designing my rehab. The doctors say I can do things that I should not be able to do! I regained my less than a body of a GOD & have returned to my active work life, sailing & softball. Many ball players call me the white haired old guy (ringer) you do not pitch to with men on base.

Winning is in the mind! I believe that if I climb a tree, my natural instincts will take me out on the limb, I just know that if the limb breaks the tree will fall and the limb stay in the air!

My condo represents me, I live there. I try to give you more & not less. I want your stay to be a winning experience.

Mounque Barazone purchased this condo in 2001

Why Mounque Barazone chose Lihue-Kalapaki

Simply it is the best resort and location on the island. I have been coming to Kauai since the 70's. This resort was built in 1980 and the hotel in 1984. They choose the best central location on the island. It is convenient to everything. 30 minutes to North and Princeville and South and Poipu. it is 5 to 10 minutes either way between the 2 biggest cities Lihue and Kapaa. Yet is very secluded and off the highway a half mile. It is on a 3 mile long secluded beach that runs along the golf course and ends at Lydgate Park. it's is close to the airport for arriving and leaving on a two lane highway. The best shopping for groceries and restaurants are in Lihue and Kapaa. The resort grounds are beautiful and well maintained, the hotel has excellent food and you get a 10% discount, it has famous weekend buffets, good bar and good pool bar and restaurant. You have the condo nice pool and Jacuzzi 1 minute away. The hotels many pools, Jacuzzis, sand bottom pool and water slide cost $20 a day. There are tennis courts and many BBQ's. Nothing on the island matches it. It is 3 minutes to the famous public golf course. 5 minutes by car and 45 minutes walk to famous Lydgate Park. It is best on the island and with a safe rock walled in swimming and snorkeling lagoon. The sunrises are unparalleled. Arriving and departing at the airport is 6 minutes away on a two lane highway. No driving 30 minutes on a one lane road to get to your a north or south condo. You do not have to leave 4 hours a head of departure to make sure your not caught in a car accident traffic jam on the one lane road or a storm tree fallen and miss your flight. I have stayed North and South and in between and there is no place like this on the island. I finally was able to buy one in 2001 after owning others North and South. I could have bought anywhere, but why settle for something less than this for my home.

What makes this condo unique

This is my private home & not just a rental. You get to use all my stuff. I keep no clothes there so all space, closets, drawers are for your use. Please read the over 123 + (last update) average 4.9 star ratings they say it all. Great well stocked kitchen (I cook), all my condiments & other kitchen items. it is a 1 bedroom with 2 air conditioners & two ceiling fans & may be the only one on the island with 2 of each. I use & you use my 600 thread count sheets, lots of towels, my rolling cooler, beach towels & beach chairs. My household items are yours to use & fully stocked, laundry soap, dish soap, hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, body gel, first aid kit, sewing kit, hair dryer, washer & dryer, paper towels, toilet paper & much more. I leave all of it for your use. That saves you money. I even have a play pen & a high chair for those with a toddler. I live here & work from here so there is Super High Speed 50 MB private secured internet with WIFI or with 25 foot ethernet cable. Regular cable TV has over 70 channels. 2 flat screen TV's in the living room & bedroom & also 2 stereos. The sofa bed will sleep 2 & has a comfortable 6" Sealy mattress.The king bed has a removable 3 inch memory foam mattress topper that can be removed for those who want a firmer bed. Mirrors Galore. In front of the bedroom closet & washer/dryer are bi-folding mirrored doors.The bedroom has a desk, chair & mirror, between the bedroom & bathroom is a separated work & vanity area with a desk, chair three vanity lights, a long wall mirror above the desk & a large full length wall mirror. The vanity area has a large armoire with closet & 3 drawers. My old & wise experience has taught me when there are multiple women (teens included) going out they all need to do get ready at the same time. This way their makeup, hair, nails & so on can be done sitting down while someone else is in the bathroom (GUYS FINALLY). I use the mirrors in the morning to look in & get my first really good laugh for the da

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing island. So much to do and see. Your condo is in a perfect location to explore North, South, East and West. The helicopter ride with no doors off was absoutely amazing. I was looking forward to the Na Pali Coast but it was Mt Wei that blew us away, fantastic. Your ice making fridge is terrific we filled the big esky with ice, put food in the little esky, put the little esky in the big esky and took water bottles and we were ways all day, everyday exploring. Monk, your condo is so comfortable we loved staying here. (from the condo written guest book.)

Great place to stay in Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo, Monk simply opens his home up to you, as if you were a long time family friend. He provides just about anything you could need for a relaxing stay on Kauai, stacked laundry, full kitchen, plenty of space to unpack into, comfortable bed, beach chairs, etc. It is centrally located for easy access to explore both ends of the island. If you're looking for a comfortable and reasonably priced home-away-from-home, you simply can not go wrong here. His write-up is priceless and really does cover almost everything as a long time local - it is basically like having a local tour guide in your back pocket.

Lastly the rooster thing on Kauai is for real - damn things are EVERYWHERE, at first I thought they might get irritating - but oddly enough they kind of just added to the charm of this beautiful island.

Owner's Response: Mahalo (for those who are going that is Thank You in Hawaiian). I live here when I am not traveling so when you rent my home that is what you get. I leave everything I provide for myself for you. I provide most everything not starters saving you some money. You get my full kitchen, condiments, seasonings and more. All paper products, soaps, laundry soap and dryer sheets. My beach towels, mats and coolers. it is not just a rental it is a home away from home located centrally in the best location on the island. A short distance from the airport making arrival and departure easy and fast and half way to the south and north. 5 to 10 minutes from the best shopping, groceries, movies, restaurants and activities. “My Semi World Famous Island Write Up” has yet to win a Pulitzer but many think it should I have been working on it for over 30 years. I am always available to my guests to help them have a great time before they arrive and during their stay. Yes the roosters are for real and have been since they were scattered in the last Hurricane many years ago. But you can buy any assortment of Rooster items, T shirts, salt and pepper shakers, plates and dozens more for souviners!, Again Mahalo (thank you) for such a nice review. Mounque

The location and grounds are gorgeous.

  • 4 of 5

Villa is in a beautiful location and equipped with everything you would need for your stay. Centrally located so it's easy to go on all sides of the island. Very close to the airport so you can get the most out of your stay. I would definitely stay there again.

The sofa and outside furniture need a little TLC but near the ocean that's the look.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review. I have on order a new Lanai set made of teak and it was supposed to be there in May. Home depot has it been on back order for nearly a month. It will have 2 large cushioned chairs and a cushioned love seat and a coffee table. it will replace the two seat bistro set and lounge that rusted in less than 2 years. I plan to recover the sofa as soon a I am there long enough. I have just added before your stay 4 new sets of 620 thread count sheets and a new comforter set from Macys. On my next return I am adding a new Cuisinart 6 piece Teflon knife set as an additio0n to my Martha Stewart set, a 12 placement set of Cuisinart flatware (with roosters LOL) and the current sets will remain for pick nicks and so on, a Cuisinart electric can opener, a Cuisinart large burr mills coffee bean grinder and a Cuisinart expresso machine. I am always upgrading my home.

Clean, comfortable, & convenient

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a great stay, Mounque! The property was clean & had everything I needed for my stay. Close to grocery stores & a great central hub from which to explore all parts of the island. I hardly ever touched the A/C, as the winds blowing in from the ocean were more than enough to cool down the condo. Having the lockbox meant I never had to worry about losing my keys, & it was great to be able to do laundry as well. Take the time to read through Mounque's Semi-World-Famous write-up: very helpful! Also, yes, there are loud, annoying roosters, & they will wake you up at all hours, but they are everywhere on the island, unfortunately. Bring some good earplugs to try & drown them out. Use it as an excuse to wake up early & see beautiful Kaua'i!

Owner's Response: Mahalo. You were a great gust. Thanks for mentioning "MY SEMI WORLD FAMOUS ISLAND WRITE UP" it is a 30 + year 30 page work in progress that still has not won a Pulitzer. My home is the best central location on the island for about everything. It would be nice if the chickens and rooster could be sent to FOSTER FARMS but they are protected by law birds. Your welcome back anytime.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this place and found it perfect for our needs. The condo was very clean and comfortable, and all the appliances worked fine. Monk keeps the kitchen equipped with all the pots, pans, plates, and utensils needed for cooking meals -- as well as many spices, condiments, etc. We spent most of the daytime hours exploring the wonderful island; but whenever we were in the condo, the two air conditioners kept the temperature just right for us during the day, and the breeze through the window screens kept us cool at night. The king bed was amazingly comfortable. The roosters began crowing around 4:00 am, but we soon got used to that. We could have slept in each morning if we'd wanted, but most mornings we opted instead to walk the short distance to the beach to see and photograph the sunrise. The condo's location is ideal for those who wish to explore the island. It's just a few minutes drive to either Kapaa or Lihue.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Joe! I am very happy you enjoyed my home and took full advantage of my full and well equipped kitchen. I leave everything for my guests so they have to buy much less and have much more. In your personal email you made some comments on Restaurants you found that I had not been to and I added them to "My Semi World Famous Island Write Up" and removed the one that just closed. It is now 30 pages. You were the first to use the new 620 thread count sheets and new comforter set from Macy's. I leave everything I spoil myself with for my guests to use. The sunrises are always as amazing as possible and I always stroll a minute to the beach with coffee. I wish they could send all the Chickens and Roosters to "Foster Farms!" They are protected by law as birds and are everywhere on the island for the last 15 years or so since the Hurricane scattered them. But, they do make great alarm clocks for the Sunrises. Yes most people get used to them in a day. Maybe Android, I-Phone and Windows will add a Kauai Rooster Ring. I may have the only 1 bedroom with 2 AC units, 2 ceiling fans, 2 TV's, 2 Stereos, 2 Air Purifiers and all those other extras. Please come back your very welcome. Mounque

Excellent Property and Centrally Located

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo unit. It was centrally located to see all the sites and not far from the airport. Grounds of the complex are beautiful and well manicured. There is a pool and a nice beach at the property. Only complaints were very minor....the maids had queen size sheets on the king bed and the bedroom air conditioning was a bit loud. Otherwise, everything was just excellent and I would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the 5 stars and your excellent and recommendations. On your two minor problems. I am not sure on the sheets problem as the 600 thread count queen sheets for the sofa bed will simply not fit on the king bed in any fashion. it is the first time this has ever been mentioned. I wish you had contacted me or my manager and housekeeper and they would have been checked immediately. I have asked my 20 year housekeeper to make sure she stretches the 600 thread count King Sheets fully over the memory foam 3 inch topper fully, she says she always does. The topper can be removed for those who prefer the firm king bed. The small 5000 BTU bedroom AC unit is a year old and is as quiet as they can be bought, but all AC units make noise. Since I had a three day break between renters I had maintenance come today to check the Ac unit it just in case there was a problem and they say it is fine. The carpet cleaners also came and the unit was fogged for mold and mildew. I own the fogger unit and it is probably the most mold and mildew tropical condo in the world! Last week the rollers, the handle and the lock were replaced on the sliding glass door. This is my home I rent when I travel and I maintain and equip it as perfectly as possible for myself and my guests get the advantage of that as well as using all my stuff. Thanks again and your private email and nice comments on my sailing stuff. Your welcome back anytime. Mounque

Short Stay in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Kauai. The location is good for traveling around the island. Very clean and fully equipped with items. Monks write up on the island was extremely helpful. We were there only 4 days and used his suggestions for restaurants and activities. Would recommend the property to anyone.

Owner's Response: Mahalo (Thanks). It is the best location on the island for going north and south and coming and going from the airport. I appreciate your mentioning "Semi World Famous Island Write Up" that I provide my guests. it has been a more than a 30 ever changing endeavor. I'm still waiting for a Pulitzer Nomination! (LOL) but it does have a tremendos amount of information. You are welcome back anytime.

Kauai Beach Villas, Wyndham Resort and the Kauai Beach Hotel (formerly Hilton) are one of the most exclusive and secluded Oceanfront resorts on the island. The hotel charges to use their facilities.

There is a small beach and ocean view when Wyndham trims the trees and bushes properly. They were trimmed on 2/27/14 and it is there as of this date.

A COUPLE MEDICAL WARNINGS and Noise from Chickens and Dirt Bikes at the beach:

1. TROPICAL ISLAND Microbial's including MOLD and MILDEW exists for all property within 2000 feet of the ocean. It is nature. My condo is one of the very few that is treated for this monthly. I bought the machine to do it for my own health. It likely has least possible. t. But for Scammer's who rent for a week or two and then after a day complain and take 2 - 3 days to go to a different property where they do the same and demand a full refund to get few 3 - 4 free days at different properties do not bother here, your warned. I have been through it and learned about the scam. But AS A HEALTH WARNING to ANYONE WHO IS SENSITIVE OR HAS ALLERGIES TO MICROBIAL'S they SHOULD NOT RENT AT OCEANFRONT PROPERTIES and likely not vacation in tropical climates, Hawaii, Caribbean or others where it is everywhere in the rental cars, restaurants, properties and more.

2. WEST NILE VIRUS and DENGUE FEVER that causes an infection that is spread by certain kinds of mosquitoes exists on the islands. I recommended always going out with repellent on.

3. CHICKENS: For those who do not know this!!!! Kauai has tens of thousands of chickens and roosters all over the island,!!! This happened from the last hurricane years ago that scattered them everywhere. They make noise, often in the morning & are a great alarm clock so you do not miss the fantastic sunrises. There is nothing that can be done to reduce or eliminate them, it is part of the island experience. The chickens are birds and protected by law & are all over the island. So if you do not like that noise choose a different island. On the other hand every store has great Kauai chicken souvenirs.

4. I like to be honest with every one and there is the Motocross race track at the end of the golf course than can make noise on weekends. The race track rack hours are Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays from 10am to 6pm and the race schedule can be seen. Many guests have wondered over there and watched racing. But it can be noisy and it is only fair you know about it. Labor day weekend they hold two days of racing and a banquet.

The resort is a half mile of the main road and 5 minutes from the airport and directly on a 3 mile long secluded beach that runs along the golf course.

Yet it is the most centrally located resort on the island 5 - 10 minutes to either end of Lihue or Kapaa and half way either direction North or South to Poipu and Princeville.

The resort is located on the 3 mile long secluded beach that runs along the famous Wailua Public Golf Course all the way to the famous Lydgate Park. It is one of the longest beaches on the island. It has magnificent sunrises.

The resort landscaping is beautiful and there are ponds, waterfalls, fountains, geese, ducks and foliage to enjoy.

My condo is only 5 minutes from the airport on the two lane highway making for a very easy, fast arrival and departure. No long drives to the North or South after a long tiring trip. For your departing flight you do not have to leave the North or South side 4 or 5 hours before your flight to make sure there are no traffic jams or accidents that cause you to miss your flight.

This is Kauai's best major resort and they located it at the best central location to see all of the island easily. It is in the middle of the east side and halfway between Princeville and Poipu. It is 5 minutes from Walmart at the beginning of Lihue and 10 minutes from the other end with Costco and Macy's and 10 minutes from Kapaa' the best grocery shopping on the island.

You are a 3 minute drive to the golf course entrance, 5 minutes to Lydgate Park and 5 minutes to the Wailua river.

Cinemas are in Lihue and Kapaa 10 minutes away in either direction.
