About Donna Reising

Danny grew up in Oahu and had a family cabin right on Pipeline, so of course he grew up surfing. As a young adult, his work brought him to the Big Island where he manages a private water system. I moved to the Big Island in 2002 from Olympia, WA. I flew for the airlines for many years and was fortunate enough to discover that Hawaii is one of the most beautiful, peaceful places in the world. My love for flying brought me to work at Mokulele Flight Service, where I originally met Danny. He was taking flying lessons. For two years he thought that I had a partner until he saw me on an online dating site. He contacted me and we’ve been together ever since and are now engaged. We bought a 206 Cessna and have enjoyed flying to the other islands. We enjoy fishing and boating to the other islands when the channel cooperates. We have recently taken up golf and have enjoyed the golf courses on the Big Island, Kauai and Lanai. Between us we have five children and I have three beautiful grandchildren. We also have two border collies and a cat who is very spoiled.

Donna Reising purchased this hotel in 2012

Why Donna Reising chose Kauai

This beautiful resort is centrally located in the middle of the island, just 10 minutes from the airport on the north end of Lihue. Just 10 minutes north of the resort is Wailua and Kapaa. Here you can enjoy river paddling tours, snorkel tours, waterfalls, dining, shopping, hiking, golfing and many more activities. On the North side of the island is Hanalei Bay, where they filmed The South Pacific. Here we enjoyed paddling the river, which flows into the ocean, taking in all of the wild life along the way. This is also where we discovered the Kalypso Island Bar & Grill. The lounge at Princeville Hotel is a breathtaking stop to enjoy a beverage overlooking all of Hanalei Bay. Just 10 minutes south of our place is Kalapaki Joe's Sport’s Bar & Grill and Gingbua Tai restaurant at the Harbor Mall. One of our regular stops for lunch is Keoki's Paradise Grill, in the Poipu Shopping Center. It offers a nice open air experience. I also recommend going early in the morning to Waimea Canyon, before the clouds roll in and view the island of Ni’ihau. On our last trip we toured the Koloa Rum Store located at the historic Kilohana Plantation, one mile South of Lihue, between 22 North Restaurant and the Kaua’i Plantation Railway. They have samples of their rum made on Kauai. It was a fun experience. If you are a golfer, Wailua Municipal Golf Course is next door (reasonable, but always packed). The Kauai Lagoon Golf Course at the Marriott is 5 minutes away and is one of our favorites. The Puakea Golf Course is 10 minutes away, another favorite. The Kiahuna Golf Course is 20 minutes away in Poipu as well as the Poipu Golf Course (which is very nice, but more expensive). The Princeville Makai and Prince Course at Princeville, are two of the most spectacular golf courses in all of the world and just 40 minutes north and there are more. There are over 40 white sand beaches to explore on this garden isle. We highly recommend the Holo Holo Catamaran trip to Nihehau.

What makes this hotel unique

We were extremely pleased from the moment we saw the view from our room on the top floor. We overlook all of the pools, waterfalls, ocean and mountains. They are great rooms for people watching too. We really enjoy being pampered with the beauty of the resort and the great service. If we just want a retreat, they will pick you up at the airport and even shuttle you to a shopping center and a couple of golf courses. The restaurant is outstanding with great food, large portions and good prices. Danny enjoyed a prime rib cooked just the way he likes it. A couple of days later, he had barbecue beef ribs and there was so much. He said he felt like Fred Flintstone. We took the leftovers back to our room and heated them up the next night in the microwave in the lounge in building two and had an intimate dinner on our private lanai. I enjoy waking up to turquoise pools, waterfalls and the ocean. I enjoy lounging by the pool and enjoying the food and beverage service or watching sports around the Tiki bar. Danny said that the surf is great for beginners or those getting back into it. I hope to try soon. We have enjoyed long walks on the beach, which is the longest one on the island. The lounge is a great alternative for lighter fares and live entertainment. I found the business center very handy for taking care of faxing, scanning and copying. The convention centers there are great for seminars or company parties. We enjoy the convenience store in the morning for a specialty coffee and a bagel.

It was what you'd expect for the price.

  • 2 of 5

The room was a typical hotel room with a bed and tv and bathroom and small refrigerator. The resort nickel and dimes you for parking and check in and check out fees which seems pointless.

Owner's Response: Aloha Lisa, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are surprised to hear that you didn't appreciate the great view from the lanai. In our listing we state that it is a hotel room and that it has a mini fridge. We also let you know about the resort fees even before you book your room, so there are no surprises. That is a way for us to keep the cost lower for the nightly rate. We feel like the resort is very nice and are very proud of our hotel room with a great view. We have traveled to the mainland and for the same price gotten a hotel room with a view of the parking lot and not as clean either.

A great place to stay for a short visit to Kauai

  • 4 of 5

This property is basically a resort hotel location. While it is a little older property, it is well maintained and clean. It worked very well for us for a short visit. The property owner, Donna, was very quick to respond when we requested information. We found the front desk staff, bell staff, and wait staff to be courtious and helpful. I would have no problem in recommending this property to anyone looking for a clean and comfortable resort hotel type accommodation.

Nice Comfortable Room

  • 4 of 5

We liked our overnight stay here very much, especially since it is so close to the airport after a long day of flying. However we would advise anyone else that for a one night stay you are going to get dinged an additional $95 in resort fees (registration + cleaning + parking) on top of the price of the room (be sure to read all the fine print in the Home Away listing for this property). Other than that, we were very comfortable there and enjoyed our experience.

Owner's Response: Aloha Patrick, We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our beautiful view room. I try to remind people of the fees that are stated on our website. It does work out much better for a longer stay. We are able to keep the rates lower than the resort.

Pretty good overall value

  • 4 of 5

While we didn't have an outstanding experience, we overall enjoyed our stay here. The room is decent and the view is great from the balcony. My main complaints include the service regarding the hotel. When we arrived in Kauai, there were a few hours between our arrival time and the check in time, so I called to see if there was any way we could check in early. The lady on the phone cut me off half way through my question, telling me my room wasn't ready without even checking into it, and was very rude. Then when we were finally able to check in after waiting a few hours, the valet who greeted us was rude to me when I tried asking him questions. Then over the 4 days we were there, the cleaning staff knocked on our door AND entered the room at least twice while we were in there, even though we clearly had the "Do not disturb" sign on the door. Then the day we actually needed them to come in and clean, they never did, even though they had the entire day to do so. The walls are paper thin, so you hear every single sound. And every time someone let their door slam, the entire place shook, and there was a lot of pounding noises throughout the day, which I'm guessing was from the nearby construction. Also, the air conditioner is not accurate. When it read 72 degrees, it felt like 60. We had to keep turning it up to 78 to be even bearable. It kept going back down to 72 though, so we had to constantly reset it. We spent a majority of our time in the room bundled up under the blankets.

Other than that, it was a decent value for a hotel room. The resort grounds are really nice.
