Kauai Beach Resort is a 4 Star Hotel property located on the Ocean. My unit is a privately owned room with great views. The view is of the swimming pools and the Pacific Ocean beyond.
The amenities at this Boutique Resort include multiple large swimming pools and jacuzzis, water slide, pool side snack bar, a sandy bottom swimming pool, as well as easy walking access to, and along, the Pacific Ocean, with a sandy beach. That's on the outside. Inside you will find a Relaxing Lobby, a 24/7 Fitness Center, a Computer Business Center, a Gift Shop, An Evening Bar/Lounge and a Full Restaurant. All Hotel amenities are yours to enjoy, Except for the Hawaiian Cultural Activities, which include Hula Lessons and Lei Making Classes and the Resort's Shuttle Service (those are excluded because you are Not renting directly through the main Management Operation, but privately through me).
This Resort is perfectly located about 10 minutes away from the Airport, which is far enough away, so that there are no noise issues. You should arrange to rent a car in advance, to explore the Island, as this Resort is not immediately adjacent to lots of shopping and dining. By booking a rental car in advance, you can get the car at, or near, the Airport as soon as you have landed. From this Resort, it is a 10 minute drive in either direction (North or South) to get you to major shopping and dining areas. You need to go sight seeing and hiking and exploring and you do need a vehicle for that. Be prepared to get dirty when hiking and exploring (we have red dirt here), and your shoes and clothes will retain the dirt stains, even after you wash them. There are exterior showers that you will want to use that are located near the Beach and near one of the jacuzzis. There is a coin operated laundry in Building #1 and the prices vary, but assume about $3.00 per wash and $3.00 per dry. There is complimentary laundry detergent in this room for your use.
As stated, my unit has view of the swimming pools and ocean beyond. There are other units here that have "Mountain Views", or "Lagoon Views", or "Field-Grass Views" of the adjoining property. If you want to see the Google Maps layout of the Resort use the link at https://goo.gl/maps/CpErJhbDTnm .
There are multiple Golf Courses on Kauai, if you are a Golfer. Immediately adjacent to this Kauai Beach Resort is the County of Kauai Golf Course. It is way less expensive than any of the other golf courses, and it is very close by. It is an Ocean Front Golf Course that is enjoyed by many. Go check it out !!
This Room has just been upgraded as of January 2018. New paint, new carpet, new furniture, new 4.4 cubic foot refrigerator, etc. It is more upgraded than most of the other rooms in this development. There is also: Keurig Coffee Maker, picnic cooler, beach chairs and other amenities like that. These Rooms, DO NOT have Kitchens and due to Fire Ordinances, cooking is NOT allowed in the units. There is a microwave in the Lounge area of the 5th floor, just adjacent to the Elevator.
There is No Smoking allowed anywhere within the rooms or within the Hotel. There are large financial penalties for smoking within the Hotel. These charges can be at least $500. There are designated smoking areas on the outside grounds, located around the Resort.
No Pets are allowed except for service animals.
Because you are renting a private room, maids Will Not be servicing your room on a daily basis. There are plenty of linens and supplies to last you for your entire stay, located within the room. If you are booking for at least 7 days, there is a complimentary mid-week clean that is at no cost to you.
Upon check-in at the Front Desk you will need to present your confirmation number, your last name, your ID and your credit/debit card. I will have sent you your confirmation number prior to your arrival.

This is a charge that they charge to all Guests. You will be provided with a room entry card for each person that is checking in.
There are a couple of Hawaii State taxes that are added to your daily rate and they are collected when you book by The amount of these taxes are currently a little less than 15%.
There is free Wi-Fi in your room, at the Swimming Pool and in the Lobby. To gain access to the Wi-Fi, you will be asked to enter your Last name and your room number, being 2442. You will then be connected to free Wi-Fi.
There are Pool Towels located within the room, in one of the dresser drawers. The Resort has these "Blue" towels, to distinguish them from the normal bath towels. Please return them to the room, whenever you use them. The Resort has a $25 per pool towel charge for any that need to be replaced. They are not worth $25 each, but that is the Resort Policy. So, please, remember to return them to your room.
This Kauai Beach Resort room is number 2442. You take the main elevator that is adjacent to the Lounge, called "Shutters". Take the elevator to the fourth floor. (There are 5 floors in this building #2.) At the fourth floor, take two quick left turns and down the hallway to #2442, which is on your left. This room overlooks the swimming pools, and the Pacific Ocean beyond that. See the pictures here at VRBO for the exact view you will have while staying here.
I will send you a Hotel Confirmation number, a few weeks before your Arrival Date. I can send it to you by email or by text (iMessage). Check in time is at 2 PM and your Check out time is at 11 AM.
The walk along this Beach is about 3 miles long and is quite scenic. Most of the Beach is not swimmable, due to coral and lava. However, there are a couple of locations that are swimmable and a lot of the time there are places for small children to enjoy that are in small tide-pool type locations. Parental supervision is always a must !!
If you are going to go swimming at any Beach on Kauai, you should be very cautious. Being an Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Kauai has slow moving rip tides that can take you away from the island easily. You may not even notice it, until you are in trouble. ALWAYS REMEMBER, that if you get caught in one of these rip tides, YOU DO NOT want to swim into shore against that tide. It will slowly wear you out. YOU MUST swim parallel to the shore for a little while, to get out of the rip tide and then swim towards the shore. If you feel that you are not getting any closer to the shore, then you still may be in the rip tide. Swim parallel to the shore a little more and then try again to swim back to the shore line. NO MATTER WHAT, stay calm !!! Getting caught in these rip tides has happened to me before, on numerous occasions, because I am a beach and ocean lover. So, remember the above, to keep yourself safe. Another beach tip, is to go to the beaches where there are lots of people. If there are lots of people there, then they are probably there because it is a little safer than other areas. Of course, we all want to have our privacy, so we may seek out beaches with no one around. BE SMART, there is probably a reason that no one is around that beach !! If you go there, stay out of the ocean, and just enjoy the sandy beach. Better to Be Safe, than to be Very Sorry.
There are so many wonderful things to do on Kauai, that I could list many of these things for you to do. But I am not going to. You have probably already been doing this research for your upcoming trip. Do all of the research that you are comfortable with. MY ADVICE = Just get to Kauai and explore everywhere that you can. It would probably be more fun and exciting to "Just Do It".
