After driving along Kauai's gorgeous 'Royal Coconut Coast', you turn Makai (to the oceanside) of the road, into the private tree tunneled entrance of the Kauai Beach Resort. A full half mile off the hustle and bustle of the road, secluded and sitting directly on the ocean front, is this stunning and remodeled island home.
Welcome to Kauai Beach Villas G-15, which has one of the most sought after ocean front locations in the resort. This unit has always had the best view in the complex, but now with the updated interior, guests consider it to be 'No Ka Oi' (one of the best)
There are more expensive condos at this resort, but why pay more? The beautiful Kitchen has all full sized appliances. If you decide to stay in for an evening, you'll find everything you need to prepare an island feast, AND you can dine oceanfront without ever leaving 'home'.
The large master suite features a king bed and it's own full bath. The 2nd bedroom has 2 double beds, so this condo can accommodate 4, or even 6 people. There is also a 2nd full bath right next to the 2nd bedroom. We provide Time Warner Cable TV service, with TVs in the living room, as well as both bedrooms. There is also a DVD player, VCR, Stereo system, hair dryers, telephones, answering machine, and best of all, we just installed new digital phone service, so you can now make unlimited phone calls anywhere in the US or Canada FREE of charge while staying at this condo!
There are walls of glass across the front of the condo with such an amazing ocean front view, it will take your breath away. There are 3 outside lanais, and with some of the most incredible views on the planet, trust me, you will find yourself spending most of your time out there. In the winter months, your ocean side lanai is also your front row seat for watching the whales that make these Hawaiian waters their winter home. Watch them jump, splash and play right in front of your lanai! The sun rises over the ocean right out in front of your lanai so you can experience these unforgettable displays of color each morning without ever leaving your condo, and you may even be lucky enough to experience a beautiful Kauai 'Moon Rise' over the ocean as well!
Convenience and location are also key attractions here, You are within minutes of a huge marketplace, restaurants, beaches, movie theater, a 24-hour Safeway grocery store, Long’s Drug’s and even a Blockbuster video. Only 5 minutes from the airport, Kauai Beach Villas is literally the midway point of the island between the north shore area of Hanalei, and the Waimea Canyon area to the south & west. Also within 5 minutes of the resort is the Wailua River, the Fern Grotto, Wailua Falls, Opaeka'a Falls, Lydgate State Beach Park (Perfect for snorkeling), Golf, boutiques and art galleries. We have our own pool & spa at the condo complex, but because we are the adjoining property to the Kauai Beach Resort Hotel, you also have the opportunity to use their facilities, and gorgeous ocean front pool. (at no additional fee). The hotel also has a restaurant & bar.
At the end of the day after exploring the island, come back to 'G-15' and relax in the comfort of your very own ocean front island home.

We liked the condo a lot, very nicely equipped with a great location - close to everything and yet private and quiet enough. We did not want the feeling of staying in a huge commercialized resort and this was very much what we found. The pools at the other accommodations at the hotel were really nice, very nice to simply be able to walk over and use them. We even got a 10% discount in the hotel restaurants.
The beach directly outside the condo and hotel is not swimmable but just next door on the shore is. But as other reviews state - there are so many other awesome beaches and sights that you really should go out and travel and see them rather than staying put. We toured the canyon, the north-shore at Haena was particularly beautiful. We found good food in the Poipu area as well as enjoying the simplicity of the Kilauea Fish Market near the Kilauea light-house. But next time we'd probably opt to buy steaks at Safeway and do some barbequeing.
We had an unusual and exceptionally hot week in Kauai in early October. There are a/c units only in the bedrooms. Leaving them on with the doors open to the living rooms worked well enough to keep us comfortable. Unfortunately the clothes dryer isn't vented outside so we couldn't use it while we were there, instead we air-dryed our clothes on the lanai without a problem.
The condo is very nice and we'd surely go back and rent again. We liked being on the second floor for privacy aspects. Parking was plentiful and convenient and the condo was quiet and tranquil especially sitting out on the lanai at night listening to the surf and sipping a glass of wine.
We traveled to Kauai as a group for 12 days and were very happy with this condo. It is on a 2nd floor with no ramp or elevator so you need to be able to handle stairs if you stay here. It was exactly as pictured, clean, had a nice kitchen stocked with plenty of pots, pans, dishes including a dishwasher & garbage disposal. Toilets were low flow & slow to flush but had no issues with them & showers worked great. The condo is missing chairs & beach items that would have been nice to have. Access to all the pools at the hotel was very nice but swimming in the ocean was fantastic too. Location is central on the island so it's easy to go north or south depending on your plans for the day. A car is definitely needed to get around. All in all a great place to stay with an amazing view of the ocean which was priceless! Mahalo
This condo is exactly as pictured. Our family of 4 stayed there and then went to Maui. The Kauai condo has an ocean front sunrise (from the living room/lanai, not the bedrooms) and a great ocean breeze so we never had to use the air conditioner. It is up a short stairway to the second floor (below ground to the first floor condo). Parking is convenient. The beds were very comfortable although the rattan furniture in the living room was not the most comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped and we saved a lot of money by cooking part of the time (a nice extra would be to provide some spices). The beach off the condo did not appear to be swimmable (at least we didn't see anyone swimming) but many great beaches are nearby and the adjacent hotel has beautiful kid and adult pools with privileges for the condo visitors. Great restaurants nearby include the Lemongrass Grill (our 14-year-old son had an amazing red curry and the waiter brought him a sample before he ordered it) and we had great low price meals at Puka Dog (never thought we would love hot dogs but even our daughter did - worth the long line) and Hamura Saimin, a hole-in-the-wall with terrific noodle soup served family style (my family asked me to work on the recipe). We did not have a very good meal at Kauai Pasta. Blue Hawaiian helicopters was worth every penny ($1000 for 4) and the drive to Waimea Canyon was fabulous. We had previously been to the Big Island and this time tried Maui (more upscale condo but too much like the Disney version of Hawaii). In the future most of our time will be spent on Kauai and some on the Big Island, and we would definitely stay in this condo next time we come back.
Everything is exactly as advertised!! We wanted for nothing. Every detail was considered. The condo is spotless. The property is quiet. It’s a 2 minute walk to the hotel. The location is close to everything. (Expect traffic between Kapa’a and Lihue tends to be slow during the day.) Some of our favorite places are Waimea Canyon, Secret Beach, Na Pali Coast. In the past, we stayed at the hotel next door when it was a Hilton. So glad we had the opportunity to meet the great owners on previous visits to Kauai and decided to try their condo. Our July ’10 stay was only 5 days. Summer '11 it will be 2 weeks.
WE STAYED HERE IN DECEMBER 2010. WE LOVED THE PLACE. THE LOCATION WAS CLOSE TO LIHUE AND OTHER SMALL TOWNS. EASY IN AND OUT. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
We stayed in this unit in June of 2010 and had a wonderful time exploring Kauai. The complex is close to the Lihue airport (less than 10 minutes) and Chad gave us very specific directions to help us find our way when we arrived in Kauai, along with instructions on how to access the unit (we liked the key box system!)
When we stopped at the Kauai Beach Villas office to pick up the parking pass, we did have to wait several minutes for the Wyndham/RCI representative to meet with us to find out if we were interested in attending one of their "information sessions." They offer a book of coupons/discounts to Kauai activities and restaurants in exchange for attending one of these 90-minute sessions, in which they attempt to sell time-shares in a new Wyndham development on the north end of Kauai. We were not interested, so we picked up our parking pass and proceeded to our unit. It was exactly as pictured, although I'm not certain that photos can ever do justice to the views from the lanai! The unit was clean and ready for us, and the kitchen was more than sufficiently stocked with dishes, pots and pans and utensils. All the appliances were in working order, and there were plenty of sheets and towels. This is a second floor unit, with one short flight of stairs outside to access the front door.
The complex is lovely, with a lagoon, black swans and beautiful landscaping, but the pool is quite small. We walked next door to the former Hilton (now the Kauai Beach Resort) which has a gorgeous pool with waterfalls, a slide and an outdoor bar, and the friendly people at the front desk told us that we did not have to pay to use the pool; they only requested that we sign in and out at the front desk of the hotel when using the pool. This larger pool is actually closer to G-15 than the smaller pool in the Beach Villas complex. There are also tennis courts available, although we never saw anyone using them.
We would recommend this unit to friends or relatives, and would love to stay there again! Kauai is a beautiful island with so much to explore. Swimming in the ocean in front of the complex is not recommended, but there is a very nice beach park less than 5 minutes from the condo complex, and Wailua Falls (of Fantasy Island fame) is only 15 minutes away. However, this condo is a wonderful "home base" - a place to relax and enjoy the ocean breeze cooling the living areas and watch the sun rise over the ocean. Thanks to Chad for making this available!
Located on the east shore of the island, and only 5 minutes from the airport, Kauai Beach Villas is literally the midway point of the island between the north shore area of Hanalei, and the Waimea Canyon area to the south & west. Also within 5 minutes of the resort is the Wailua River, the Fern Grotto, Wailua Falls, Opaeka'a Falls, Lydgate State Beach Park (Perfect for snorkeling), Golf, boutiques and art galleries.
