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 and 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

About Kathy Reams
Aloha! In 2011, I moved from Colorado to Kauai on a "working vacation" as a registered nurse. After successfully raising two beautiful daughters as a single mom, & caring for foster children in Canada and nursing in both Canada and the USA, I am now living my tropical dream of "forever summer". I absolutely love Kauai...... the culture, the people, the perfect balmy weather, the breezy trade winds, the warm rains, the tropical fruits, especially lilikoi and apple bananas, the hiking trails, the beaches, snorkeling with the turtles....simply put.....I love it all & it will be my pleasure to share my knowledge & love of Kauai with you, my guests! Please know that I do not have access to my cell phone when I am at work, (except during breaks) at the Kauai Community Correctional Center health clinic, evenings 1:30pm to 10pm, so it is possible that my response to your message could take up to 8 hours. Thank you in advance for your patience............Aloha, Kathy

Perfect Location and Fantastic Hostess
My family thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on our vacation. This location was perfect for getting around the Island. Kathy was very kind and had the room all ready for us when we arrived. She had some special treats waiting for us. All of her attention was very appreciated and made us feel very welcomed. Kathy had many extras in the room that saved us a lot of money. She had things for the beach and a larger refrigerator that was very useful. Kathy even dropped us off at the airport when we left. She was wonderful and made herself available to us. Kauai is absolutely gorgeous. There is so much to see and enjoy. I love that the Island is not so crowded and feels calmer. We rented a car from Kathy and that was very helpful and less stressful than renting from a large company. We cannot say enough good things about our experience in Kauai. We loved the property and the whole experience. Thank you Kathy! We appreciate all you did to ensure we had a wonderful time.
Excellent week in the sun!!!
My daughter and I had a fabulous week at Kathy's little condo at Kauai Beach Resort. She has fabulous amenities that made the stay special. We could hear the waves all the time. It was warm with a cool breeze. Bed was very comfortable and pillows were great. We were able to save some money by eating in the room, but go out when we wanted a special meal.
We enjoyed the pool facilities, though they were some what chilly, like the ocean. Having a microwave, little frig and freezer, coffee maker was perfect. Renting a care gave us mobility to see any sights and go snorkling. Wonderful trip!!!
Clean, Comfortable, and Caring
Kathy does a great job preparing for her guests! Cold drinks and snacks in the 'frige, chocolates on the pillows, fresh linens, plenty of fluffy towels, complete guide books and personal island tips, shampoos and soaps, coffee, tea, medicine cabinet supplies, wine glasses, paper products, trash bags, comfy beach chairs....she has thought of it all to provide a relaxing and trouble-free stay in her unit. The many extra items Kathy furnishes are all clean and ready to go. Graciously, she has been very generous in stocking and supplying the unit which will save you a lot of time and money from having to go out to purchase or rent many things such as swim fins, snorkel, and swim masks, boogie boards, walking sticks, beach mats or a cooler. You really only need to pack your clothes and sunglasses! The king-sized bed was so comfortable. The air conditioning was spot on and easy to use - no fiddling and finger-crossing. Check-in and check-out was easy. The unit was quiet and conveniently close to the beach to catch the sunrise and for taking daily walks. The pools, towel hut, and Driftwood Bar were close to use often yet not so close as to disturb us. That made it quick and easy to find a good spot for sunbathing, people watching, and for the weekly music. The unit is in the best location! The lanai is pleasant to sit on to watch the neighborhood action and there are no stairs to drag your stuff up and down! I appreciated that and I think I'm fairly fit!
In two weeks, we never met an unpleasant staff member. They always gave us an "Aloha" and "Mahalo" whereever we met, from the waitstaff to the grounds keeping crews to the housekeeping staff to the folks at the front desk. The property is well kept and easy to navigate. Very relaxing, like your vacation in Kahua'i should be! One of the nice things about Kahua'i is that you can always find some good weather, just head north or south when the weather gets cloudy around Lihu'e! Mahalo, Kathy!
Kathy was very responsive to any questions we had (albeit only a few!). The place is wonderful and her suggestions for what to do around the island we're equally amazing. We stayed for 8 days and could have stayed for more. :)
Amazing place to stay in Kauai!
This is the best place to stay on the island! My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary (with no kids!) and this room had everything we needed. Beach front view, small kitchenette and tons of extra stuff to use to explore the island. Oh, and the poolside bar is only a few steps away! Kathy was an amazing host and we will definitely stay again, hopefully in the near future. Maholo Kathy!!
Can't imagine a better place to stay!
Kathy was absolutely amazing to work with. She was a wealth of information & tips. Always available if we needed her. Her place was perfect - wonderful view of the ocean & pool from the patio. All the amenities you could ask for & then some! Made use of the larger fridge & cooler for a picnic & groceries. Close walk to the car without paying extra for parking. Wonderful Aloha experience. Maholo!
