Kapaa Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom/King Bed and 1 Bedroom/two double beds**3 Baths**


Welcome to the new Waipouli Beach Resort.You probably have decided this is where you want to stay and now want to know which one of the 200 privately owned condominiums to chose. Most of them have the same floor plan with two master suites and a third bath. We are one of the few who can sleep 6 people without using a sofa bed. Our PRIVATE PENTHOUSE has no neighbors on any side or above. The elevator will whisk you right up to our door. We have a mountain view of Sleeping Giant and overlook acres of swaying palm trees. We can also see a bit of the ocean and are protected from the wind so the lanai is more usable. Our designer furnishings are tasteful, comfortable and top quality. A special feature is our 55" Smart TV with expanded channel and DVR.

Kauai is pleasant year round, so we offer the same low price through out the year. OUR RATE IS ONE OF THE LOWEST OFFERED IN THE RESORT. Rates are subject to an 13.42% Hawaii tax, a $180 cleaning charge and a $15 per day per person Resort Free. We know that you have the choice of many units at a variety of prices, but E-401 will give you the most enjoyment for the least money.

About Richard Madden

Richard is from Texas and Donna is from Minnesota. We met in Germany and got married in 1965. Our two married children live in Europe; a long way to go to visit the grandchildren! We spend most winters in Kauai, to get away from the California cold. (That is a joke for you people from Minnesota and Canada.)

Richard Madden purchased this condo in 2006

Why Richard Madden chose Kauai

Our first trip to Kauai was in 1980. Donna worked for United Airlines and got a 'freebie' at the resort just south of Waipouli. We came back to Kauai several times and then bought a one bedroom unit at the Pono Kai Resort, just north of Waipouli. A year later we bought a 2 bedrom. Our family and friends enjoyed many years there. When the new complex was built right down the road, we sold both units and bought our penthouse in the elegant new Waipouli Beach Resort.

What makes this condo unique

We love the location of the complex. It is just a short drive to the north to Hanalei or to the south to Poipou. On the days the golfers take the car, the rest of the family can walk nearly everywhere they want to go. We also love our location within the complex. Our lanai is protected from the ocean wind so we can enjoy dinner and cards there in the evening.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful time in Kauai and so enjoyed your unit. Had all the comforts of home plus wonderful weather! Spoke with Grace before we left, had some food etc and wanted to make sure she would be able to use it. Thanks again for the use of your home away from home. I will definately pass along your info to others I know who might be interested.

Fabulous stay in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO for several vacations over the years. The owner of this condo was so easy to work with and the resort and condo were amazing. It had everything you would need and more. It was very comfortable and had a lot of room for our family. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a resort feel at a price comparable to a stand alone condo without a pool.

I knew the resort pool area was popular but didn't expect it to be such a hit with my 10 year old daughter. She could have spent the entire trip in that pool. It was our first trip to the island and it was a busy week with spring break and Easter. I was so thankful to have the location on the island that we did. It is central to everything and had a Safeway nearby to stock our kitchen. I know some people like the Princeville area but there are so many things to see on the north and south shore. We felt lucky to be right in the middle so we could enjoy both shores.

We also felt very safe and comfortable in this unit as it was located in the central part of the property. It was also close to the elevator so we didn't have to travel far to drop bags and groceries.

We would recommend this to anyone visiting Kauai!!!!

Perfect Location and Great Private Unit

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in October 2015 for 8 nights, owner is very friendly, unit was ready up on our arrival. If we go again we will be staying in the same unit, it is very private, good views, mountain and coconut plantation along with part ocean and road views. Owner also accommodate our late checkout request which was a plus.

This property was absolutely AMAZING!!! We stayed for 4 days & 4 nights. There is trust involved when you send a deposit check to someone and expect to use their rental property. Richard was wonderful to work with, very nice and professional and put me at ease. The transaction was completed in a timely manner and we knew exactly what to do once we got to the resort. It was a very nice resort with lots to do, in a GREAT location and the condo easily accessible. It's close to lots of restaurants, a grocery store, and it doesn't take very long to get to the north, south or west shores. The furnishings were updated and the beds were very comfortable. I was there with my husband and 22 year-old daughter who loved that she got her own room which was located on the other side of the living room from our bedroom, and that she had 2 bathrooms to herself, and a lanai! The kitchen was great with everything in excellent condition. I would stay there again in a heartbeat! Thank you, thank you, thank you Richard and Donna for sharing your property with strangers and making our vacation memorable and comfortable! Talk to you next time!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beautiful place! It was perfect for the 5 of us and very close to shopping and the activities that we had booked. This place had all the amenities that we needed and the place was very clean. It doesn't face the pool side and you can only see the ocean from one corner of the lanai but it wasn't a concern to us since you just walk outside to enjoy all these things. Great central location to all activities. It was also nice that we didn't have neighbors directly on either side of us and it was very quiet. We would highly recommend this as a place to stay on Kauai! Thanks Richard and Donna for sharing your home with us!

Wonderful Penthouse Unit in Fantastic Resort

  • 4 of 5

Our family celebrated a major wedding anniversary at Waipouli. The location of this complex is superb. The entire complex is incredibly well maintained. This is a terrific place for families with a very large pool area that includes 2 water slides, a waterfall cave, a shallow area for little ones, and a lazy river. The grounds are immaculate. This unit is wonderful in that the 2 bedrooms each have their low bathroom and balcony. The common living area is nicely furnished with a kitchen that is well supplied. It is very nice being on the top floor in an isolated unit so that it is incredibly quiet. The unit does not have a view of the pool but it is cheaper than the units overlooking the pool area. Our only complaints which we have addressed with the owner, were the lack of towels and the missing tub drain plug. Waipouli is 8 miles north of the airport and is centrally located for sightseeing whether going to Poipu or Hanalei. There are 3 groceries including a health food grocery across the street along with several restaurant options. Waipouli also has a restaurant on site where you can enjoy a meal of happy hour right on the beach. We would definitely recommend Waipouli and unit E401.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. Sorry that you had an issue with the towels but there should have been an extra set for six guests. You could have called our housekeeper whose contact information was in the Confirmation Letter for help. We do provide the washer dryer and also you can get up to six beach towels at the pool. We hope to see you in the future. Thanks for enjoying our place. Richard Madden

We stayed in this condo for 10 days in April with our two, 9 year old kids. It was PERFECT! Nicely appointed as the pictures suggest, comfortable beds, clean, and a beautiful resort setting. We loved the pool and the lazy river. Our kids had a blast which meant we got a little bit of a vacation ourselves. This was a great location as it allowed us to head north some days and south others and even made it to the west side of Kauai. The owners were wonderful to work with. Book it... you won't regret it!
