I had the pleasure of staying here for 2 weeks with some out of town family. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit. It also had a dining room, full kitchen, living area, lanai and tons of closet space. The main bedroom had a television and attached bathroom. The second bedroom did not have a tv, and the bathroom was right outside our door. The room was a little outdated but I saw in the front lobby that they are redoing the rooms. It was very convenient to have the full kitchen. We cooked breakfast almost every morning and packed lunches for all of our Kauai adventures.

The grounds of this property are very pretty. There is a beach stretching the entire back of the property. It is a public access beach, but there were not too many people there all the times we went. You can do lots of things right on the property. You can play croquet, feed the koi, or go to the pool. The staff was all very nice and accommodating. I also love the location. It is very close to 3 grocery stores and within walking distance of old town Kapaa. I would recommend staying here for any family.
