Awesome Kauai Condo on the Ocean

This condo is just a lovely as the pictures and the hosts are so kind. The newly renovated condo was very comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, comfortable queen bed (with small a/c) and stacked washer/dryer unit. The location was on the east side of the island, so it was easy to travel to and from the airport, to the North Shore, and to the south and western sides of the island. Our favorite restaurants were across the street and a small shopping center was within walking distance. Our stay in December was a bit cooler than anticipated but still very enjoyable. We walked on the beach several times. One of the best features is the awesome view from the back porch: the beach and ocean! Our only negative is that the security light shines heavily in the bedroom windows and there were no extra blankets for the bed. This wouldn't keep us from renting this condo again!

Wonderful Gem in a Great Locations

Wonderful unit, beautifully updated in comparison to other units (I stayed in 3 during my vacation). Great thought has gone into making this a beautiful home away from home. The complex that houses this unit is excellent, the pool after a day at the beach perfect, the proximity to all parts of the island fabulous and the view is outstanding. Spent many days just walking to the WBV beach and then up to the pool to end the days. The communication with owners was excellent and I would stay in this unit again. Mahalo Bill and Georgia!

“Location! Location! Location! Unit #106”

“Location! Location! Location! Unit #106” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 2 days ago NEW The view from the lanai cannot be beat! It is amazing and exactly as in the photo by owner! We spend a lot of time on the lanai and it must be our very favourite space in this one bedroom condo. Although the Kuhio Hwy is near, the sound of the waves drowns the traffic noise and palm trees and shrubbery cover up the vehicles on the road nicely. We stayed at Kauai Beach Resort last time but prefer WBC because of easy (walking distance) access to places where to eat (Monico's Taqueria; Caffe Coco) and buy baked goods/have breakfast or lunch ( Passion Bakery and Cakes by Kristin just across the street). Grocery stores such as Safeway and Foodland are just minutes away by car. The owners of this condo have been extremely helpful from the time of the booking and the replies to our questions (via e-mail) have been timely. It is clear that they take pride in their home-away-from-home and that they wish their guests to enjoy their stay too! The pictures posted depict the condo accurately! We love the light engineered wood flooring throughout the apartment. It makes the space look very stylish and clean. Everything IS also very clean and well organized, the kitchen stocked with everything you need to cook at home, even spices! The kingsize bed is comfy (we keep the bedroom windows closed to keep out the traffic hum) and there is a TV and AC unit (we do not use it) for additional comfort. If stainless steel appliances are on your perfect vacation list, you need to keep on looking. However, the current kitchen in this unit works perfectly fine and we appreciate the fact that the landfill has stayed so much smaller as a result! We would recommend this unit to our friends and we hope to return one day ourselves! Room Tip: Lower level units have nice views too and w/o the climb as there is no elevator in the complex. Stayed November 2014, traveled as a couple

Nice condo in a great location

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo, central to all Kauai activities. Easy access to everything we needed and wanted. Lovely condo - liked that the décor wasn't "tropical kitsch". Very accommodating owners - even called us in advance to ask if we needed any of the condiments they hadn't used. Sent us a text message picture of sunrise to let us know that Tropical Storm Ana wasn't going to impact our trip. Lovely welcome basket, last minute request to stay an hour later than check out was approved. GREAT view; w/in walking distance to several beaches. Quiet. Great coffee shop/bakery right across the street. 10 minutes from airport, but NO airport noise.

Truly Fantastic

This oceanfront Kauai condo was *truly fantastic.* If anything, the photos don't do the view and the tasteful, comfortable decor justice. Bill & Georgia have clearly put tons of thought into the amenities they make available to their guests, with really nothing left wanting -- plenty of towels, great king-sized bed, all the kitchen tools you need, etc. They even sent us a fruit basket to welcome us when we arrived! We loved staying here, and the location was great too. We highly recommend this condo to any couple looking for a great deal on a romantic getaway to Kauai.

Wailua Bay View 106

The condo exceeded our expectations in every way. It was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities listed above. We definitely took advantage of the full kitchen cooking dinners several nights as well as use of the beach chairs and fins. The description and photos are accurate including the comment of hearing the ocean from the living room. Bill communicated with us upon arrival to the airport and remained available which made for a very smooth check in. We also received a welcome gift package which was a pleasant surprise. I would highly recommend this condo.

Beautiful Condo

6/18-6/28/2014 We were surprised by a wonderful gift of sparking wine!!! Just a great start to an incredible vacation with a beautiful view & accommodations. After spending many vacations on the island, this was the best place we have stayed with the best fully-equipped kitchen and lots of beach towels. It was obvious the owners take great pride in their condo. We really enjoyed a sea cave tour and exploring of the beaten path beaches. I am here with my 9-year old granddaughter Zoey. Thanks for a wonderful stay! We will, hope to stay here again! Andrea W.

Beautiful, centrally located base from which to explore Kauai

We very much enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, well-equipped condo, and recommend it highly to anyone looking for a centrally located base from which to explore Kauai. The condo is attractively furnished and spotlessly clean, with a well-equipped kitchen and a beautiful view of Wailua Bay. The condo grounds are also well-maintained, including an attractive pool. Location-wise, the condo is across the street from several shops, walking distance from more shops and restaurants, and very close to grocery stores and other amenities. The owners are very responsive, and were pro-actively helpful in coordinating our check-in with our flight arrival time. I would be happy to come back to this condo in the future. Recommended for: Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway Response from Bill & Georgia Rita, we are very happy that you and your family enjoyed our home away from home. It seems like you enjoyed our condo for the same reasons that we do - centrally located, walking distance to shopping, ease of access to the beaches, and a beautiful unobstructed view of the ocean. We sincerely hope that we have the opportunity to host you and your lovely family on your next Kauai vacation. You folks were a pleasure to have as our guests!!

Review from AirBnB

Reviews are written at the end of a reservation through Airbnb. Reviews you've received will be visible both here and on your public profile. Anton Vayvod From the three flats we stayed at during our trip to Hawaii, this was the best one. The space is big, there are actual washer and dryer in the unit (not a laundromat in the basement). Everything was in perfect condition and ready to use. The internet was fast, the kitchen was fully equipped, there were plenty of towels and pillows, etc. The balcony has a great view of the nearby surfing beach. The condo was quiet despite a busy road being not far from it. On the first day we received a gift basket from Bill & Georgia that was very nice with some fresh fruit and yummy cookies. The area is very nice with swimming and surfing beaches nearby. There's a small shopping area across the road with grocery at the gas station and restaurants (highly recommend Monicos Taqueria, delicious food!). The Foodland is in a reasonable distance, about 15 minutes walking along the road. The Lihue airport is about 15 minutes drive away (around $20 by taxi). Bill & Georgia Response from Bill & Georgia: Anton, Georgia and I greatly appreciate the positive review and are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. I will immediately take care of the issue with the bathroom door lock and will make sure that the internet connection and password are clearly displayed. We hope that we have an opportunity to host you again on your next visit to the island Mahalo, Georgia and Bill What Anton loved about your listing: The view. The space. The condo was very big and well equipped. The responsiveness of the host. Fast Internet. What Anton thought you could improve about the experience: Some of the lights (e.g. in the corridor) didn't work or we didn't find the right combination of switches to turn it on. The bathroom door was locking when closed from the outside and had to be picked with something to open (a small key on the keychain worked well for this). It wasn't very hot during our stay but I guess an AC in the living room could be nice. It would save us some time if the WiFi name and password were printed on a piece of paper somewhere where we could find it. August 2014

Paradise

We checked into your condo today and we wanted to let you know how pleased we are... Everything is absolutely perfect for our stay for next 7 days.

We have a snorkeling, ATV ride, and dinner cruise planned but anything that you highly recommend would be appreciated. We also have two 10 year old boys with us so which beach should we go to? Thank you from the XXXXX from Norman, Oklahoma!!! Follow up email on 7/19/2014: We just got home yesterday. Everything was perfect. ........... It was a wonderful condo and an amazing vacation that we will hold in hearts forever. We hope to return one day soon. I will be sure to go on trip advisor to write an excellent review.
