    We had a great 10-day stay at Kapaa Sands. Conveniently located on the island, right in the middle of the coast highway so you can easily explore to the north or south. Walking distance to a few restaurants good for breakfast or dinner. Nice pool,...More

    We have been coming to Kauai for over 13 years and have stayed at the Kapaa Sands for 11 of those years. We enjoy the condo's and location but loved the "ohana"-welcoming style of management on site. Now booking for 23 condo's is through 5...More

    Loved the location and the "simple style" of the property. Felt like we lived there. The ocean view was amazing and the sound of the surf was memorizing....We sure slowed down once we got there. Less is more!

    If you don't mind cockroaches you won't find a more beautiful location. The beach is right outside your door. You can hear the waves crashing as you go to sleep. We saw the roaches the first night and called the management co, the next morning,...More
