Awesome Family Stay

Spacious and secluded. This is away from main roads but close to the beach. A great pool with bbqs and loungers and tables with umbrellas. The apartments are spacious although ours was a little dated and run down-everything functioned fine. Staff were helpful. Resort facilities were in excellent condition despite the apartment not being so. Placed halfway between Waimea and Hanalei and close to shops, and closee the kids playground at Lydgate. Great spot.

Perfect quiet getaway

Pros: The view and walking path.
Cons: Wo,lid like to have help taking. Our bags to second floor. Maybe available, but we didn't ask.
Location: Seaside walking path, Lydgate park, losts of restaurants in Kanapaa. Halfway between Princeville and Poipu. Not overdeveloped.
Our ocean front condo had a million dollar view. This older property is well maintained. Since the condos are individually owned, there can be variability in what you get in terms of furnishings, interior etc. Ours was through Castle properties who have management on site. We had modern furniture and kitchen appliances. When we arrived the dishwasher was awaiting parts and they offered to send someone from housekeeping to do the dishes. It didn't seem necessary and the dishwasher was repaired the first business day after our arrival. The location can't be beat...... right on a sea sidewalking path that leads to Lydgate park with sheltered swimming and picnic facilities. The beach directly in front is not safe for swimming, you are warned, but there are so many beautiful and safe beaches in Kauai. Pleasant pool on the premises. A quiet, lovely base from which to enjoy Kauai.

Well kept Condo on the beach

Pros: Central location
A short drive north from Lihue airport and upon arrival our condo was ready and waiting. The staff was friendly and courteous, they were informative and appeared to genuinely want us to enjoy our trip. The condo was clean and and provided all necessary kitchen appliances. There were several guide books on the shelf as well as many books if you had forgotten to bring your own. The first impression for us was "What a view" our condo looked out on the lawn and the sea. The grounds like the buildings are meticulously maintained. With the west facing unit we enjoyed the sunrise every morning. We are early risers and are entertained rather than bothered by the omnipresent chickens. (if you have never been to Kauai, they are everywhere) While the beach directly in front of the facility is not for swimming, a short walk north along the beach on a paved path and you are at a park. There is a beautiful pool with gas BBQ grills, adequate parking and 24hour security. We had a ground floor unit. If like us you are still able to climb stairs, I would recommend an upstairs unit. For half of our stay there was a family of 4 above us who sounded like a herd of buffalo any time they were there. By the time I was at wits end, they checked out.

Great View!

The grounds of the property are lovely. Pool was cleaned everyday and the laundry facialities were convenient. We had a great view of the ocean from our lanai. The condo we stayed in was in serious need of a major overhaul. The furniture had seen better days and the floors in both kitchen and bathroom were badly worn and stained. Carpet also needs to be replaced. The couple we stayed with had trouble with their bathroom toilet running all the time.

Your own piece of paradise

Kaha Lani was more then I had imagined. I have been to Kauai at least 10 times to visit relatives there and had always stayed in homes. I had retired two days before going and had decided to treat myself. I had visited all of the major hotels there through the years to look around and have dinner, but wanted something more personal and comfortable. I was a bit disappointed when I was assigned a ocean front ground level unit, that disappointment turned to delight when I entered the front door. Unit 127 is amazing, it is well maintained, the decor is so lovely, it is spacious and the view of the ocean can be seen from anywhere in the living room, dinning area and kitchen. It is in building 8 the closest to the water, you just open the sliding door and walk across the lawn and the beach is right there. It was so nice that my relatives cooked dinner there instead of me going to their houses. They may live there but they enjoyed Kaha Lani and its view as much as I did. Unit 127 is a 1 bedroom and on the corner so we had complete privacy. I could go on and on about the beauty of this place and they hospitality of the people there. 10 min walk along the path way heading left takes you to lyngate park a great place to picnic and swim, special area for children to swim an be safe. I cant wait to take my kids and grand children to Kaha Lani our own piece of paradise.

Away from the highway noise and busyness

Pros: Quiet
We enjoyed our stay at Kaha Lani - we had a 2-bedroom condo, even though we had requested a 1-bedroom. We had wonderful views of the ocean and could easily hear the surf. Kaha Lani is within walking distance of Lydgate Park, where there are nice beach facilities. We made use of the laundry room and the on-site pool - right outside our door. This hotel is a bit south of the busy section along the highway, but not so far away that you cannot easily get to anything within 10-15 minutes. I would not stay here without a rental car as the only thing within walking distance is the park.

The location can't be beat.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
We absolutely loved Kaha Lani...the ocean front view was fabulous & listening to the waves was so peaceful. We watched the sunrise every morning from our spacious balcony and wentto the beach every day. There are very few people on that stretch of beach & the ones we did see were many times local people who were fishing or wind surfing, etc. There aren't any big resorts close by, so it truly does have a nice secluded feel. The grounds are also beautiful & we loved that staff light torches around the pool each night - it looks so beautiful. The condo itself may not have top notch furniture, etc. but that doesn't matter at all to me & my family. It was clean, comfortable and we felt at home there. It was a wonderful vacation and I would recommend Kaha Lani to anyone who loves peace & quiet along with a priceless view.

This was just what we wanted. Quiet, on the beach, close to everything on Kauai.

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
We have read some of the reviews but found it to be just what we wanted. A "non-touristy" location but close to drive to everything on Kauai. We would certainly recommend it to anyone who didn't want a night club on site. These condos were everything we wanted.
