About Donna Bowles

We have lived all over the country and recently moved to the Big Island from Nashville. We have traveled the world and find Hawaii to be our home of choice.

Donna Bowles purchased this hotel in 2015

Why Donna Bowles chose Lihue-Kalapaki

We really have a special place in our hearts for Kauai and decided to by a hotel room at the Kauai Beach Resort to share this special place with family and friends.

What makes this hotel unique

We were extremely pleased from the moment we saw the view from our room. We overlook the pools, ocean, mountains and tiki bar. It is a great room for people watching too. We really enjoy being pampered with the beauty of the resort and the great service. If we just want a retreat, they will pick you up at the airport and even shuttle you to a shopping center. The restaurant is outstanding with great food, large portions and good prices. We enjoy waking up to turquoise pools, waterfalls and the ocean. We also enjoy lounging by the pool and enjoying the food and beverage service or watching sports around the Tiki bar. The surfing here is great for beginners or those getting back into it. We have enjoyed long walks on the beach, the longest one on the island. The lounge is a great alternative for lighter fares and live entertainment. I found the business center very handy for taking care of faxing, scanning and copying. The convention centers there are great for seminars or company parties. We enjoy the convenience store in the morning for a specialty coffee and a bagel.

Beautiful family resort with adult accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

The room was neat and tidy just as if a regular hotel room! The view was wonderful and so were the services. I did feel as though the actual resort does not like vrbo guests. We loved the stay and will definitely be coming back!

Owner's Response: Aloha, We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our place. The resort would prefer we have our rooms in their rental pool. It isn't cost effective for us and our guests. We are glad the staff treats our guests very nice though. We look forward to your return in the future. Mahalo, Donna & Danny Bowles

Nice place right on the water, centrally located

  • 4 of 5

This was our third time in Kauai, first time at a resort here. While we ended up being way to busy each day with excursions to use all the amenities at the resort, everything looked great. I was very happy with how updated everything is. The bed was comfy, the room was nice and big. My only issue with the room is that there is not a fan in the bathroom... And our only issue with the hotel was that they closed the outdoor pool bar at 6, we were almost never back at the resort in time to use it. There was no night life here at all. Which would be great for families. Overall, it was a great place. Thanks

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. There is a fan in the bathroom, just not a ceiling fan. We enjoy sitting outside of the lounge by the firepit at night and meeting people from all over. Please keep us in mind for the future and bring your family & friends, since we have two other rooms.

Property is beautiful! Ocean front, several pools, hot tubs, chickens everywhere!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! It was a quiet, easy to get around and not overly crowded resort. Our condo had a beautiful ocean view from our balcony and was clean and very accommodating. The overall resort is wonderful, it has all the amenities you could want- spa, washer/dryer, daily rental cars, etc. We would have liked complimentary room cleaning services. Also, we didn't mind the location of the resort, but it is a 10-15 min drive to restaurants and entertainment. I feel the resort is underrated based on its location, otherwise it is a wonderful place for couples or families with small children. We would come back!

Best Honeymoon Location!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing experience! First time using VRBO and we were a little hesitant that we were going to show up and not have a room... Even though we had excellent communication from Donna leading up to our stay. We were just skeptical because the place looked too good to be true, especially for the price. But when we arrived and checked in at the front desk, as you would at a resort, all our worries floated away.


Perfect! Great for a couple. Comfy bed. Nice clean and fresh hotel linens. Lots of living space, nice spacious bathroom that worked well for us (we're over 6' tall and sometimes that's an issue). Nice patio with a great view of the pool and the ocean. And most importantly great A/C. No issue with smell as I read somewhere else previously. Fresh new carpets. Nice TV with lots of channels. Great location within the resort – near the ocean, pool, hotel bar/shaved ice stand, and near the restaurant (good breakfast, but pricey buffet at $24). Did that a few times, and McDonald’s and Starbucks on excursion days. Only criticism is we wished there was a microwave and beach chairs.


Resort location couldn’t be better. Central east coast with an easy drive to the north and south coasts. It’s great in that it’s close to Lihue (shopping and the airport), without it being on the doorstep. More private than other “tourist zone” hotels such as Waimea and Kapa’a. Also, all of the excursions we went on were in the area (ATV, tubing, helicopter, Smith family luau). One thing of note, yes, it’s on the windward side, so we did notice it to be periodically more cloudy than the south coast – but usually it was only for a few seconds, and served as a nice reprieve from the hot sun.


Couldn’t have asked for a better honeymoon resort. Excellent front desk and valet service (included as part of the resort fee) – so friendly and always available with fast service. Great selection of 4 pools with nice waterfalls. 2 larges hot tubs, one of which is adults only (but sometimes we had to enforce it). Great drinks at the poolside bar and service poolside. Great shaved ice adult drinks. Beach was great to walk in the morning (sunrise side of the island), but not meant for swimming. Nice lounge and outside fire pit at night.

When we go back to Kauai, there is no question we will be staying in this same VRBO. So nice to be staying in a resort without having to pay the resort prices. Thank you Donna for a wonderful honeymoon!

Owner's Response: Aloha John, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. There is a microwave in the lounge on floor five of building two, just off the elevator. If you walk towards Kapaa the ocean is better for swimming. We look forward to your return in the future and are glad that you enjoyed our room for your honeymoon. Mahalo, Donna & Danny Bowles

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this property do not do it justice. It is GORGEOUS. The room is exactly as photographed, but the property is spectacular. The resort is nothing short of paradise. If you are a photographer, you will love capturing both the sun and moonrise. The grounds are impeccable. I would stay here again! Loved this resort experience!

Just 10 minutes north of the resort is Wailua and Kapaa. Here you can enjoy river paddling tours, snorkel tours, waterfalls, dining, shopping, hiking, golfing and many more activities. On the North side of the island is Hanalei Bay, where they filmed The South Pacific. Here we enjoyed paddling the river, which flows into the ocean, taking in all of the wild life along the way. This is also where we discovered the Kalypso Island Bar & Grill. The lounge at Princeville Hotel is a breathtaking stop to enjoy a beverage overlooking all of Hanalei Bay. Just 10 minutes south of our place is Kalapaki Joe's Sport’s Bar & Grill and Gingbua Tai restaurant at the Harbor Mall. One of our regular stops for lunch is Keoki's Paradise Grill, in the Poipu Shopping Center. It offers a nice open air experience. I also recommend going early in the morning to Waimea Canyon, before the clouds roll in and view the island of Ni’ihau. On our last trip we toured the Koloa Rum Store located at the historic Kilohana Plantation, one mile South of Lihue, between 22 North Restaurant and the Kaua’i Plantation Railway. They have samples of their rum made on Kauai. It was a fun experience. If you are a golfer, Wailua Municipal Golf Course is next door (reasonable, but always packed). The Kauai Lagoon Golf Course at the Marriott is 5 minutes away and is one of our favorites. The Puakea Golf Course is 10 minutes away, another favorite. The Kiahuna Golf Course is 20 minutes away in Poipu as well as the Poipu Golf Course (which is very nice, but more expensive). The Princeville Makai and Prince Course at Princeville, are two of the most spectacular golf courses in all of the world and just 40 minutes north and there are more. There are over 40 white sand beaches to explore on this garden isle. We highly recommend the Holo Holo Catamaran trip to Nihehau.
