About West Flato

Married. Retired school administrator from San Diego. Owned in Sandpiper since 2009. Originally from Santa Barbara where I was born and raised. I have one daughter living in Houston, Tx, married w/3 boys. We are loving Kauai!

West Flato purchased this condo in 2009

Why West Flato chose Princeville

We had vacationed here several times and chose Sandpiper because of its old Hawaiiana style, the amenities, and location on the North Shore. The vegetation is very lush, the song birds are plentiful, the condos are kept up nicely, and its one of the few with a big pool, spa, and BBQ in the same area. Good for entertaining and relaxing. Also the lanais are of the largest of any condos in the area, expanding your outdoor living.

We have a sunset view, and the studio is considered a garden apt. even though we are nicely located on the 2nd floor.

What makes this condo unique

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

West has a great location and well-equipped place. We walked to Hideaway Beach two mornings. The walk was lovely and that way you don't have to worry about the limited parking. We saved so much money by hitting up Costco first thing and using the kitchenette to store and prepare our meals. We spent four nights here and two nights at the Sheraton down south and much preferred the accommodations and feel of Sandpiper Village to the resort (the Sheraton didn't even have a microwave!). The only cons of this place/location are that the little fridge seems to struggle to keep things cold from time to time and that some of the beaches and trails were closed due to the extreme flooding earlier in the year (not West's fault though, obviously...just a bummer!).

Decent unit, unprofessional owner

  • 1 of 5

The unit itself is for the most part as described but what is not described is the unprofessional owner. Unit was suppose to be unlocked prior to arrival but instead, upon arriving unit was locked and left us stranded in the rain. Multiple attempts were made to contact owner but unsuccessful. VRBO had to step in and provided a temporary place for the night. We were not even going to include that in his review until we received a condescending message from owner after check out. The message was inappropriate, unprofessional, involving our comparison to his grandkids for something we did not do. We are adults and professional people, if he had a problem with anything, he could have messaged us in a polite way, especially since we're paying customers who paid a cleaning fee (this also did not seem like an appropriate reason for an owner to email a customer about anyway). We are not one to leave a negative review for anyone but it is warranted in this case.

Pros: Unit decent for stay once you're able to get in

Cons: beach gear not all in working condition (snorkeling gear needs to be updated (only 1 semi works), beach umbrella broken), bathroom light stopped working on last day, lots of mosquitos in the kitchenette area, unprofessional owner

Perfect base camp

  • 5 of 5

Great location and clean. As pictured and described. We did not spend much time in the room but it served its purpose perfectly. There was some noise from the road and neighbors in the evening.

Clean tidy great value

  • 5 of 5

Host cares about the details, like shower has all the fresh towels, shampoo/conditioner, hairdryer, little cooking spot has everything you need, we cooked our favorite oatmeal every morning, and watched Netflix every night, great value for a such nice place, already recommended to friends. Thank you, West!

This studio was everything we needed. The outdoor kitchen worked out great and the constant breeze kept the studio cool. Very clean and close to all activities near the North shore. Would definitely rent this studio again!

A Kauai Visitors' Guide ("The Blue Book") is provided and for your use while in residence with us. You'll find it very useful in locating different beaches all over the island. All kinds of activities are elaborated on and it is truly a guide to the Island. You will be surprised how centrally located our condo is to all the recreation the North Shore has to offer. The closest beach is 5 min away and there are several in that range. Hanalei Town is 7 min away over a one way bridge. It offers the most places to dine and shop on the North Shore. Several beaches are near by that you can just drive up to the water and set up camp. It's a very relaxed, island style of living and a comfortable way to enjoy all the North Shore has to offer. (Example: Drive right up to the beach and put your kayak, paddle board, surf board right in the water!) Island Style!
