Overview

About the property

My 800 SF full condo King Bed, Living Rm. Sofa Bed, Full Kitchen, Bath, Sleeps 4

Aloha! The 161 Average 4.9 Star Reviews "Say It Al"! Guests Love My Partial Ocean View Completely Equipped Home which I Rent When I Travel. You will too.

It provides a relaxing, comfortable stay for your vacation, honeymoon or anniversary the same it does for me when I return home. Everything needed is there in abundance. I just buy food.

Guests say my home may be Kauai's best deal & they return over & over & recommend me.

I put nothing away. You use everything there I spoil myself with & all listed further below.

My home & yours is located at an Exclusive Secluded Oceanfront Resort. It is the most centrally located & convenient spot to everything on the island.

Just a 1 minute or so walk to the beach with great sunrises. It is on the 2nd Floor with 10 steps & has No Elevator.

My home is a large 1 king bedroom, full bath, fully stocked gourmet kitchen, lighted mirrored vanity/desk area, living room, dining area, 2 WIFis, My 50 MB SECURED & the Resort's Public. 2 Air Conditioners, 2 TV's, 2 Stereos, 2 Air Purifiers, 2 Ceiling Fans & way more than in a normal rental & much you will not have to buy.

IT'S NOT A 300 SF HOTEL ROOM converted TO A STUDIO with many Extra fee's .

My Cancellation Policy is $100 before 90 DAY's with levels of refunds after. It's NOT NONE. VRBO has ONLY 30, 60 & NONE.

If renting 10 days or longer BEFORE BOOKING PLEASE contact me for a new quote, there are Interim cleanings fees explained below. Over 14 days there is a $10 a day added.

I'm not in the rental business, its my home for 18 years, I'm one of a few private owners left at the resort & the rentals help pay my $900 a month association dues with all facilities at no extra fees & pay my high taxes.

It's nicely decorated, at least I think so! it has Tile, Carpeting, Solid Varnished Mahogany Doors, Hunter Douglas Blinds, Real Wood Cabinets, Granite Counters, Gourmet Fully Equipped & Stocked Kitchen, Sailing & Other Art, Artificial Flowers & Plants, My Beach Stuff & more.

You get everything I spoil myself with. 2 of each Flat Screen TV's, Stereos, DVD's, A/C units both new in July 2017, Air Purifiers, ceiling fans & 6 thick Pima Cotton Towels - Bath, Hand & Wash, 2 sets of 620 thread count sheets, comforter set, 6 beach towels 3 extra large and 3 medium, 2 chairs, 4 umbrellas, 2 coolers & I have a play pen & high chair available.

The fully stocked kitchen has condiments, 20 + seasonings, cooking oils & sprays. All paper products, soaps, shampoos, conditioner, laundry supplies, first aid, sewing kits, some needed medicines, cotton balls, Q-Tips & much more.

You have my washer & dryer & all the detergent, dryer sheets, bleach, starch & iron & ironing board. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BUY ANY OF THE ABOVE & THAT SAVES YOU A MONEY.

I leave no clothes, all my closets & dresser drawers are empty, this question comes up.

Kauai Beach Villas is one of the most exclusive, well maintained & secluded Oceanfront Resorts on Kauai. A 1/2 mile off the main road & on a 3 mile secluded beach along the adjacent famous public golf course ending at famous Lydgate Park.

All facilities & parking in front of my condo are free & paid by my $900 HOA dues. There's a newly re-decked Pool & Jacuzzi. Newly resurfaced Tennis Courts, many BBQ's & great Beach Access. All a 1 to 2 minute walk.

The hotel is separate with NO Affiliation. They offer a 10% discount on food (subject to change anytime) to condo guests. Their pools & gym are NOT available. The Spa is open to the public.

My resort is the most centrally located & convenient to everything on Kauai. Only 5 - 7 minutes from the airport, 5 - 10 minutes from either end of Lihue or Kapaa & 1/2 way either direction 30 minutes to an hour to the North (Princeville), South (Poipu) & West shores.

Your living room has a remote ceiling fan, air conditioning, air purifier, queen sofa bed, cushioned chair & ottoman, 32"' Flat Screen LED HD TV & 74 channels, stereo, DVD, books & a few games with a small distant partial ocean view.

Your lanai has the same view, 4 chairs & 4 end tables that can modular arranged as foot rests, side tables or grouped 2 or 4 together between chairs.

Your bedroom has a remote ceiling fan, air conditioner, air purifier, king firm bed with a 3' memory foam topper that can be removed for those who want it firmer. You sleep in 620 thread count sheets. There are 2 king pillows & blankets & comforter. You have a 24" Flat Screen LED HD TV with the 74 channels, DVD, stereo.

My gourmet kitchen is better equipped than most homes. I like to cook & bake. There's filtered water at the sink & refrigerator & ice maker. Lots of pots & pans, baking pans, corning ware, fine china, glasses, crystal stemware wine glasses & champagne flutes, fine silverware, 2 knife sets & lots of utensils. Appliances include a full stove & oven, large microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, blender, hand mixer, 2 food processors & 2 coffee makers (8 & 5 cup), espresso maker, coffee bean grinder, 4 slice toaster, George Foreman Grill, electric skillet, slow cooker, waffle maker, popcorn maker, electric & hand can openers, rice cooker, steamer & blender, wine opener, all cooking utensils, bowls, storage containers, & more. You have ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, soy & Worcestershire sauces, 20+ seasonings, olive & canola oil, cooking sprays, foil, wraps & more

Nice 4 cushioned chair dining set, granite counter bar & 2 bar stools.

Bath has a tub, raised Speakman shower head for taller people with floral brass trimmed sliding doors. A set of 6 Thick Pima \Cotton bath & hand towels & wash cloths, hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, body wash. Medicines include headache, diarrhea, antacid, chest rub, petroleum jelly & denture cleaner. I have cotton balls, Q-tips, nail polish remover, body lotion, peroxide, 70% alcohol & the first aid & sewing kit.

Between the bath & bedroom is a separate 3 light vanity & desk area wide make up mirror & full length wall mirror. The desk has a stapler, scotch tape, pens, paper & more. An Ar moire has 2 drawers with spare towels, hanging closet with blankets & beach towels This area makes it nice to work seperately or do hair or makeup while others are in the bath or bedroom.

Beach stuff, a medium rolling cooler, a 28 qt large cooler, cooler jug, 3 regular & 3 extra large beach towels, 2 beach chairs, 4 beach umbrellas & a couple of boogie boards.

There is NO regular telephone in the condo since 99% of people have cell phones & that added $15 a week to rentals & almost no one used it.

The beach, swimming pool, Jacuzzi (whirlpool) & BBQ's are a 1 minute or less walk.

Magnificent morning sunrises at the beach, the picture you see on my listing is one of hundreds I have taken. The colors are as lovely as they can get, I go every morning with coffee.

The resort landscaping is beautiful. There are ponds, waterfalls, fountains, flowers & foliage to enjoy everywhere.

You close to the airport on the only two lane part of highway. This makes for a very fast arrival & departure & adds time to your trip. You don't have a long hour drive to the North or South shore after a long tiring flight. On departure you don"t have to leave 4 before your flight to avoid missing it if there's an accident or a tree blows down closing the one lane highway.

You are 5 minutes from Walmart & the hospital in Lihue, 10 minutes from Costco & Macy's & 12 minutes from Kapaa's with Safeway & Foodland the largest grocery stores.

RATES & FEES:

2018 - $159/Night for 2 people. Additional people regardless of age are $15/NT per person. There's a $50 management fee per stay & a $135 check out cleaning fee + 14.42% taxes. Over 10 nights interim cleaning fee. Over 14 days additional days are $10 a day, more supplies & electric are used on longer stays.

Instant Booking doesn't charge the 2 hour interim cleaning fees of $95 each on rentals over 10 days. I send a new quote if when requested before booking or a payment request for those charges if after booking.

Please understand that longer stay guests cost me more in the islands high electricity & supplies. Guests go out and tour less and live in more.

Interim Cleaning is done at - 10/12 days- 5th/6th, 13/14 - 7th day. Longer stays repeat the cleaning & charge. This protects my home & ensures quality for the next guest. If housekeeping determines you are not maintaining my home & they needs more time or must come back the deposit is debited. This is rare, but it happens.

Christmas - New years December 15 - January 7 is $30 a night more

Resort Timeshare guests needing 1/NT or more before or after your stay, do not instant book, contact me for a quote.

I"m honest, a Motocross race track is at the end of the golf course & makes noise on weekends & holidays. Hours are Sat, Sun & Holidays 10 am to 6 pm. The schedule link can be Googled, Kauai Motocross. VRBO does not allow a link. It is only fair you know. Labor day weekend are 2 days of racing & a banquet.

PLEASE read this location information:

1. Medical warnings for Microbials. Tropical islands worldwide have mold & mildew. If you are sensitive you may be bothered. People do not think about this when planning a vacation & dreaming of the islands. I remind people so no one gets sick. My condo is fog treated for these every 2 months & is as fresh & as mold free as possible.

2 West Nile Virus & Dengue Fever are present on the island. Use mosquito repellent cases have been reported.

3: The Rooster Noise may wake you up. Chickens were scattered during the last hurricane many years ago & are protected by law as birds & aren't sent to Foster Farms, LOL!

4. NO SMOKERS, PLEASE, inside, outside or my Lanai. DON'T INQUIRE the answer is NO! Including cigars & marijuana. A medical card doesn't count. It's still smoking! I know that it is idiotic I even have to mention it but joints have been left in the safe! I don't want any smoke odor in my home. You will forfeit your deposit.

About Mounque Barazone

Aloha! I'm 69 years young & still work & play hard. I'm an machine & tools inventor for Geosynthetic's used world wide. My small manufacturing company is 38 years old. I travel for construction consulting, sailing & softball. My small shop is in Northern CA & most of my employees have worked for me between 20 & 35 years. I don't think of moving to where it cost's less, my US people deserve to keep their jobs. I use all US suppliers.

I'm still an avid sailor & softball player. I've been on professional sailing & softball teams & was support staff for Team Dennis Conner, Stars & Stripes Americas Cup Teams in 1992 &1995.

I still sail & play softball in events worldwide when someone wants to bring in the old 'ringer'! I played semi pro softball for 13 years in the 1970's & 80's. I have never lost my batting eye, just the legs do not work like they used to, but I am still pretty fast! Photo is of a recent walk off international tournament winning hit on a team with mostly 20 & 30 year old's! I went 27 for 33, scored 22 runs & drove in 52. If you care. By the photo the team did, it's their first ever win.

For 30 years I was a well know sports trainer & therapist, my 2nd job. I did this during the Americas Cups & for other professional teams. I retired after a bad car accident in 2005 & some back & other surgeries over a couple years. I worked hard at my recovery designing my rehab. The doctors say I can do things that I should not be able to do! I regained my less than a body of a Greek God & have returned to my active work life, sailing & softball. Many ball players call me the white haired old guy (ringer) you do not pitch to with men on base.

Winning is in the mind! I believe that if I climb a tree, my natural instincts will take me out on the limb, I just know that if the limb breaks the tree will fall and the limb stay in the air!

My condo represents me I live there. I try to give you more & not less. I want your stay to be a true winning experience

Mounque Barazone purchased this condo in 2001

Why Mounque Barazone chose Līhuʻe

It is simply it is the best resort and location on the island. I have been coming to Kauai since the 70's. This resort was built in 1980 and the hotel in 1984. They choose the best central location on the island. It is convenient to everything. 30 minutes to North and Princeville and South and Poipu and 45 minutes to the west side or far north. It is 5 to 10 minutes either way between the 2 biggest cities Lihue and Kapaa. Yet is very secluded and off the highway a half mile. It is on a 3 mile long secluded beach that runs along the golf course and ends at Lydgate Park. it's is close to the airport for arriving and leaving on a two lane highway. The best shopping for groceries and restaurants are in Lihue and Kapaa. The resort grounds are beautiful and well maintained, the hotel has excellent food and you get a 10% discount, it has famous weekend buffets, good bar and good pool bar and restaurant but you can not use their pools or gym. The condos have a nice pool and Jacuzzi 1 minute away & just redone. . There are tennis courts and many BBQ's. Nothing on the island matches it. It is 3 minutes to the famous public golf course. 5 minutes by car and 45 minutes walk to famous Lydgate Park. It is best on the island and with a safe rock walled in swimming and snorkeling lagoon. The sunrises are unparalleled. Arriving and departing at the airport is 6 minutes away on a two lane highway. No driving 30 minutes on a one lane road to get to your a north or south condo. You do not have to leave 4 hours a head of departure to make sure your not caught in a car accident traffic jam on the one lane road or a storm tree fallen and miss your flight. I have stayed North and South and in between and there is no place like this on the island. It took me 11 years to finally get one of these in 2001 after owning others on the North and South. I could have bought anywhere, but why settle for something less than this for my home when I am not traveling.

What makes this condo unique

This is my private home & not just a rental. You get to use all my stuff. I keep no clothes there all closets, drawers are for your use. Please read the 161 + (last update) average 4.9 star ratings they say it all. Great well stocked kitchen (I cook), all my condiments & other kitchen items. it is a 1 bedroom with 2 air conditioners & two ceiling fans & may be the only one on the island with 2 of each. I use & you use my 600 thread count sheets, lots of towels, my rolling cooler & a 28 QT large one, beach towels, umbrellas & beach chairs. My household items are yours to use & fully stocked, laundry soap, dish soap, hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, body gel, first aid kit, sewing kit, hair dryer, washer & dryer, paper towels, toilet paper & much more. I leave all of it for your use. That saves you money. I even have a play pen & a high chair for those with a toddler. I live here & work from here so there is Super High Speed 50 MB private secured internet with WIFI or with 25 foot Ethernet cable. Regular cable TV has over 70 channels. 2 flat screen TV's, living & bedroom & also 2 stereos. The sofa bed will sleep 2 & has a comfortable 6" Sealy mattress.The king bed has a removable 3 inch memory foam mattress topper that can be removed for those who want a firmer bed. Mirrors Galore. In front of the bedroom closet & washer/dryer are bi-folding mirrored doors.The bedroom has a desk, chair & mirror, between the bedroom & bathroom is a separated work & vanity area with a desk, chair three vanity lights, a long wall mirror above the desk & a large full length wall mirror. The vanity area has a large armoire with closet & 3 drawers. My old experience has taught me when there are multiple women (teens included) going out they all need to do get ready at the same time. This way their makeup, hair, nails & so on can be done sitting down while someone else is in the bathroom (GUYS FINALLY). I use the mirrors in the morning to look in & get my first really good laugh for the day

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an amazing island. So much to do and see. Your condo is in a perfect location to explore North, South, East and West. The helicopter ride with no doors off was absoutely amazing. I was looking forward to the Na Pali Coast but it was Mt Wei that blew us away, fantastic. Your ice making fridge is terrific we filled the big esky with ice, put food in the little esky, put the little esky in the big esky and took water bottles and we were ways all day, everyday exploring. Monk, your condo is so comfortable we loved staying here. (from the condo written guest book.)

Great place to stay in Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo, Monk simply opens his home up to you, as if you were a long time family friend. He provides just about anything you could need for a relaxing stay on Kauai, stacked laundry, full kitchen, plenty of space to unpack into, comfortable bed, beach chairs, etc. It is centrally located for easy access to explore both ends of the island. If you're looking for a comfortable and reasonably priced home-away-from-home, you simply can not go wrong here. His write-up is priceless and really does cover almost everything as a long time local - it is basically like having a local tour guide in your back pocket.

Lastly the rooster thing on Kauai is for real - damn things are EVERYWHERE, at first I thought they might get irritating - but oddly enough they kind of just added to the charm of this beautiful island.

Owner's Response: Mahalo (for those who are going that is Thank You in Hawaiian). I live here when I am not traveling so when you rent my home that is what you get. I leave everything I provide for myself for you. I provide most everything not starters saving you some money. You get my full kitchen, condiments, seasonings and more. All paper products, soaps, laundry soap and dryer sheets. My beach towels, mats and coolers. it is not just a rental it is a home away from home located centrally in the best location on the island. A short distance from the airport making arrival and departure easy and fast and half way to the south and north. 5 to 10 minutes from the best shopping, groceries, movies, restaurants and activities. “My Semi World Famous Island Write Up” has yet to win a Pulitzer but many think it should I have been working on it for over 30 years. I am always available to my guests to help them have a great time before they arrive and during their stay. Yes the roosters are for real and have been since they were scattered in the last Hurricane many years ago. But you can buy any assortment of Rooster items, T shirts, salt and pepper shakers, plates and dozens more for souviners!, Again Mahalo (thank you) for such a nice review. Mounque

Owner's Response: Mahalo and your welcome back. You are my 160th review. I simply provide more than a normal rental, it is my home I rent when away. Contact when a guest needs me or my manger is extremely important whether it is for something in my home or simply questions on the island or "My Semi World Famous Island Write Up". I want everyone who stays to have the best possible experience. Your very welcome back. Thanks for taking such good care of my home.

Great Accommodations at a Convenient Location!

  • 5 of 5

The description of this rental does not do it justice. The place is clean, cozy, with a well stocked kitchen (really any appliance you can want or need), and useful complementary amenities. This is also an excellent rental for families with a young child -- there's a small room between the bedroom and bathroom, where you can put a pack and play (the owner has one at the rental). The space is dark but there are plugs for a nightlight and allows the parents to spend time in the living room or out on the lanai without bothering the little one. The owner also has a high chair in the rental.

There's lovely furniture out on the lanai and you can relax listening to the sounds of the waves, which are visible from one end of the lanai. The owner provides beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, cooler, body boards, and other fun beach toys. The beach is less than a five minute walk away -- we enjoyed sunrise and sunsets on the beach almost every day. The rental is also adjacent to the swimming pool and hottub and there's a beautiful resort, with delicious (albeit expensive) food, a short walk away (2 minutes).

The owner has a 30 page Island write up that is super helpful and we referenced many times -- especially for restaurant suggestions. The owner is also super helpful, responsive and accommodating!

Owner's Response: Mahalo!!! You have said so much not much more I can write. I walk to the beach in a minute every morning with coffee to watch the sunrises. I walk fast. They still amaze me and I have maybe 1000 photos. I would think with a baby it takes longer to walk. Yes the hotel has good and expensive food. Since it is my home and I put nothing away my guests use everything I have and my gourmet kitchen. Thanks for taking care of my home and you are welcome back.

Kauai Beach Villas, formerly Wyndham Resort (who still manages it) and now GP Resorts and the seperate the Kauai Beach Hotel (formerly Hilton) are one of the most exclusive and secluded Oceanfront resorts on the island. The best central location on the island. A pool, Jacuzzi, tennis courts and BBQ's.

There is a small beach and ocean view when the resort trims the trees and bushes properly. .

wondered over there and watched racing. But it can be noisy and it is only fair you know about it. Labor day weekend they hold two days of racing and a banquet.

The resort is a half mile of the main road and 5 minutes from the airport and directly on a 3 mile long secluded beach that runs along the golf course.

Yet it is the most centrally located resort on the island 5 - 10 minutes to either end of Lihue or Kapaa and half way either direction North or South to Poipu and Princeville.

The resort is located on the 3 mile long secluded beach that runs along the famous Wailua Public Golf Course all the way to the famous Lydgate Park. It is one of the longest beaches on the island. It has magnificent sunrises.

The resort landscaping is beautiful and there are ponds, waterfalls, fountains, geese, ducks and foliage to enjoy.

My condo is only 5 minutes from the airport on the two lane highway making for a very easy, fast arrival and departure. No long drives to the North or South after a long tiring trip. For your departing flight you do not have to leave the North or South side 4 or 5 hours before your flight to make sure there are no traffic jams or accidents that cause you to miss your flight.

This is Kauai's best major resort and they located it at the best central location to see all of the island easily. It is in the middle of the east side and halfway between Princeville and Poipu. It is 5 minutes from Walmart at the beginning of Lihue and 10 minutes from the other end with Costco and Macy's and 10 minutes from Kapaa' the best grocery shopping on the island.

You are a 3 minute drive to the golf course entrance, 5 minutes to Lydgate Park and 5 minutes to the Wailua river.

Cinemas are in Lihue and Kapaa 10 minutes away in either direction.

The hotel does not allow use of their pools or gym. They give a 10% food discount (subject to change anytime) and charges to use their spa and has shops and other facilities and a South Pacific play. .

A COUPLE MEDICAL WARNINGS and Noise from Chickens and Dirt Bikes at the beach:

1. TROPICAL ISLAND Microbial's including MOLD and MILDEW exists for all property within 2000 feet of the ocean. It is nature. My condo is one of the very few that is treated for this monthly. I bought the machine to do it for my own health. It likely has least possible. t. But for Scammer's who rent for a week or two and then after a day complain and take 2 - 3 days to go to a different property where they do the same and demand a full refund to get few 3 - 4 free days at different properties do not bother here, your warned. I have been through it and learned about the scam. But AS A HEALTH WARNING to ANYONE WHO IS SENSITIVE OR HAS ALLERGIES TO MICROBIAL'S they SHOULD NOT RENT AT OCEANFRONT PROPERTIES and likely not vacation in tropical climates, Hawaii, Caribbean or others where it is everywhere in the rental cars, restaurants, properties and more.

2. WEST NILE VIRUS and DENGUE FEVER that causes an infection that is spread by certain kinds of mosquitoes exists on the islands. I recommended always going out with repellent on.

3. CHICKENS: For those who do not know this!!!! Kauai has tens of thousands of chickens and roosters all over the island,!!! This happened from the last hurricane years ago that scattered them everywhere. They make noise, often in the morning & are a great alarm clock so you do not miss the fantastic sunrises. There is nothing that can be done to reduce or eliminate them, it is part of the island experience. The chickens are birds and protected by law & are all over the island. So if you do not like that noise choose a different island. On the other hand every store has great Kauai chicken souvenirs.

4. I like to be honest with every one and there is the Motocross race track at the end of the golf course than can make noise on weekends. The race track rack hours are Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays from 10am to 6pm and the race schedule can be seen. Many guests have
