Kind of Like Staying at Your Grandparents Rental
Be sure you want what you’re getting here! Many pros but some serious cons. Pros: This little condo has a nice layout: two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs; kitchen, living room, and half bath downstairs; and two ocean-facing lanais with beautiful views (partially obstructed by a big tree). The landscaping of the complex is lush and gorgeous. The location is great, making both north shore and south shore Kauai very accessible. You can walk (though not always on sidewalks) to grocery & drug stores, weekly farmers’ market, and restaurants. SUP and snorkel rental places are also nearby. We are happy to report that we did not smell any mildew, as a previous reviewer mentioned. There were very few chickens (aka roosters waking @5:30) around while we were there. The kitchen is very small but has recently upgraded granite countertops and a decent microwave, dishwasher, and smooth-top range. The beds were fine. The tv is small by today’s standards but was fine, as was the wifi and cable. The local property manager for this unit was fabulous. We had a plumbing issue early on our month-long stay. She quickly got us into a nice alternate place for a few days while the plumber fixed it and the house cleaners re-sanitized everything. Cons: This rental unit is very, very outdated. No doubt it was nice several decades ago, but it seems like it hasn’t gotten much love since then. Dishes, glassware, and silverware are mismatched and random and knives dull. In the upstairs bathroom, vinyl wallpaper is curling off the walls, the shower is very small, and counter space is minimal. The larger bedroom has nowhere to put your stuff except in the closet. The smaller bedroom has a large empty dresser and an almost-empty closet. Doorknobs, hinges, latches, and other metal fittings have been corroded over time by the salt air, so they look dirty and gross even when they’re clean. Upholstered furniture looks shabby and artworks on the walls are sun-bleached and discolored. Bring earplugs if you’re a light sleeper in the larger (ocean side) bedroom as the high tides can get noisy. Sometimes there are people on the beach not being particularly quiet. Hopefully this unit will get a thorough renovation sometime soon, as most other units in the complex have, so that its inside can better match its outside. When that happens, this unit will be a little gem.

3/5 Okay

Property location is great, condo needs work
We chose this condo for its location, and it didn't disappoint in that regard. Rare to find a place so close to the beach, and the view and sounds of the surf were a delight and exactly what we were looking for. Much better beach access than neighboring properties. That being said, we didn't spend much time in the condo itself because it wasn't up to our standards. There was a strong mildew smell once the cleaning fragrances wore off. The upstairs bathroom especially needs updating, as wallpaper is peeling and shower is old and grouting was falling apart. Shag carpeting in this property felt an odd choice, might feel fresher if replaced. All of the sliding door screens kept falling off their tracks (although they seem new, so it was a fit issue). We had a problem with ants in the kitchen and property management responded to our issue with additional cleaning, which was thorough and appreciated. Our check-in was a bit chaotic (and a little awkward for us) due to a miscommunication between management and the condo owners, but all were nice and managed as best they could considering the circumstance. The Kapaa Sands property has nice vegetation & plantings, a nice quiet pool, is a good location for walking to some restaurants, and the tide pool at the beach was lovely. Overall, we had a nice stay and I would consider staying at the Kapaa Sands property again, just not in this particular condo.

5/5 Excellent

Great time
Needed a place to decompress. Love the ocean’s presence. Was a great, relaxing week!

Rest and Relaxation
This property could not be in a better locatin as far as me and my family are concerned. We enjoyed every moment of the view, waqtching sea turtles from the lanai swiming rignt below us! If you are looking for rest and relaxation this is the place for you, the Condo is the perfect size for a family of 4. There is no airconditioning but with the trade winds and the doors open you do not need it! Only one night of our stay did we have a bit of a problem with noise on the beach below us from some locals that had come to party, but the way we looked at it we were visiting thier Island! I would highly recommend this property and We hope to come back soon!
