My "RESORT ROOM" is located at beautiful Kauai Beach Resort, which is centrally located on the east shore of Kauai, about half way between the south & north shores. Perfect day trips to Waimea Canyon on the west and Hanalei Bay to the north. The Resort is located on 25 acres of beachfront property and one of Kauai's longest secluded beaches, Nukolii beach. It's 2 mile beach walk to Lydgate Park with it's natural ocean pool for swimming. I call it "beachfront bliss" - sand between your toes, soothing sound of the waves, basking in sunshine, whales breaching, monk seals resting on the beach, tide pools brimming with sea life, a distant fisherman, local surfers.....a bounty of simple pleasures just steps from your hotel room! Please note even tho you will see locals surfing offshore, this is not a safe swimming beach. Within ten miles there are many great restaurants & local hot spots. Some of my favorites are Dukes at Kalapaki Bay, Kintaro's, Verdes, Street Burger, Trees Lounge, Lava Lava, Tiki Taco (da best!) and Olympic Cafe in Kapaa, Hukilau Lanai at Kauai Coast Resort and Street Thai food wagon in the Ace Hardware Parking Lot in Lihue, oh yes and Kauai Beer Company & Pho Kauai on Rice Street, also in Lihue! Further away is the Kaleheho Cafe, (Kaleheho), Da Crack (Poipu) and The Dolphin (Hanalei). Great Breakfasts at the Country Kitchen in Kapaa, 15 min drive. For golfers, the Wailua County Golf Course, rated #3 in Hawaii by The Golf Channel, is just 1.4 miles north of the resort. Farmer's markets, my favorite for fresh local produce, are also in close proximity/10 mile radius, every day of the week except Sunday.
Monday - Kukui Grove Shopping Center parking lot, Lihue, 3-4pm
Tuesday - Coconut Market Place, Kapaa, 9am to noon
Wednesday - Kappa Sunshine Market, New Town Ball Park parking lot by Bypass Road, 3-4pm
Thursday - Coconut Market Place, Kapaa, 9am to noon
Friday - Vidinha Stadium parking lot, Lihue, 3-4pm
Saturday - Kauai Community Market at Kauai Community College, Puhi, 9:30am to 1pm
The Resort was built in 1986, originally a Hyatt property and has been well maintained.
Of great importance; even though Kauai Beach Resort is super close to the Lihue airport, we are NOT located under the flight path of airplanes. Kauai Beach Resort is close to everything BUT has the feel of a private oasis.
I strongly recommend renting a car to explore the island. Please message me for car rental options.
Please note that at certain times of the day with the increased traffic flow, it can take a while to turn left onto Kuhio Hwy. I often take a right and drive 2.5 miles to a U-turn/two way lane cross road right before the Wailua River, stay in the left lane to access this side lane for turn around. If you miss it, then take a left at the light just after the Wailua bridge. As you are driving to this turn around option, you will notice across from the golf course, that you could turn left into a community property, if you do so, you may be stopped by one of the ACO's (Adult Correction Officers) as you have driven onto the Kauai Community Correction Center (aka jail) property! I suggest driving just a bit further to make your turn around!
REFERENCE FROM COLLEAGUE/DR. ROBERT W. BUCKINGHAM
Kathy's place is marvelous and magnificent is so many ways. The accommodations are exactly as she has described in her listing profile, but I was still wonderfully surprised at how great the entire experience was when I stayed for a weekend in January 2016. The room is spacious, warm & inviting. The view from the lanai is a beautiful combination of pool and ocean. The sidewalk is far enough away from the building to afford you privacy while lounging on the lanai, enjoying the tropical trade wind breezes and listening to the sound of the waves. I liked the easy access to the room, no stairs, simply enter building 4 (closest to the ocean), and enter the first door on your left. I found the King bed very comfortable (nice balance between not too hard/not too soft) with a variety of pillows so I had my preference pick. All the extra's Kathy provides - larger fridge, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, beach chairs/mats/towels, cooler, boogie boards, yoga mats, snorkel equipment, selfie stick, water, snacks, DVD's are a big bonus. I enjoyed the luxury of fresh brewed coffee, being able to make my own breakfast and then pack a picnic lunch for my beach walk to Lydgate Park. I was impressed that everything I needed was there for my use, not your "typical hotel room" that's for sure. I was also impressed at how quiet and peaceful the room was at night. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating to my needs and questions. Everyone I encountered exhibited kindness, gentleness, trademarks of the Hawaiian culture. This truly is the island of ALOHA. The Resort grounds were always immaculate. I dined one evening at the Naupaka Terrace, enjoying the outside seating. I definitely give 5 stars for ambiance. The salad bar was fresh and the selection to my liking, a great start to dinner before the "all I could eat pasta" special. Prices were comparable to other superior restaurants on Kauai. As a morning person, I was up early to walk the beach and take in the glorious sunrises. A 50 yard stroll from my room, coffee cup in hand, to watch Mother Natures spectacular daily morning light & sea show. I'm not a yogi but I sure did notice the expansive "yoga studio" on the oceanfront lawn. I've traveled the world & the comfort, the resort amenities, the beautiful location, rivaled that of hotel rooms costing me upwards of $300/night. This is a deal not to be missed. You will love the beauty & spirit of Kauai & of this magnificent Resort. Aloha Dr. Robert W. Buckingham Professor of Epidemiology University of Michigan.
