Problematic timeshares/condos adjacent to a nice resort.

Dec 2nd, 2019

The eight 3-story buildings have condo/timeshare/rental units of several sizes located across an artificial lagoon from the Kauai Beach Resort. There are no elevators; third-floor units are up 29 steps. Buildings F, G, and H face the beach, which is pretty but too dangerous for swimming. Buildings A, B, and C front a tiny swimming pool (3 by 1 car-lengths in size) and associated hot-tub. Buildings D and E have views of the lagoon, which has several fountains. Half of the units in all buildings instead face parking areas with minimal views of anything else. A small office building is near building B (they serve root-beer floats here on Tuesday afternoons). We arranged our Wyndham timeshare trade 9 months ago and we phoned a couple of days in advance to request buildings F, G, or H, nothing above 2nd floor (thanks to recent knee surgery), and especially not a unit facing parking (we repeated the last request 4 times). We arrived 30 minutes before 4 pm check-in and found ourselves assigned a unit in Building C facing the parking lot. The only other option was a third-floor unit in Building E, also facing the parking lot, which we eventually took. They were totally inflexible, claiming that our record said nothing about "no parking lot view." Perhaps Wyndham is mainly to blame, but certainly the KBV guy we phoned was not honest with us and failed to put down our main request; probably the staff doesn't even look at requests until you arrive, by which time your unit is already assigned. Expect to pay mandatory taxes and fees of well over $200 for a week, beyond what you might already have paid for a timeshare trade. Internet connection works well. You do get pool privileges at the Resort (with pink wristbands), which is easily reached from buildings E, F, G, and H. It is a more distant walk from the other buildings, or you pay for valet parking. The several pools at the Resort are vastly larger than the tiny pool at KBV; one pool has a sandy bottom for kids, a waterslide, and a poolside bar. A good but expensive restaurant is open to the public at the Resort; KBV folk get a 10% discount on food. Our KBV one-bedroom unit is moderate in size and quite adequate, forgetting the issue of 29 stairs. A bottle of wine, a box of macadamia nut chocolates, and a double swan creation from towels were on the dining table as we entered. We had distant views of ocean waves, seen between buildings G and H from our lanai. There is a full kitchen, a tiny safe, a washer and dryer, a vacuum cleaner, iron and ironing board, a picnic igloo, a dining table, and a small table on the lanai. There are many chairs (11, including 4 on the lanai; two living room chairs are quite comfortable), 3 stools, and a couch. There is a TV, but no directions about the arcane way required to turn it on. Closet space is minimal. Maintenance is poor: one can't open the sliding doors to the lanai or the closet doors without great effort because they stick and tend to come off their tracks. The weather stripping under our entrance door came off, causing the door to bang loudly in the wind during the night. The badly designed lint filter in the dryer repeatedly falls off, creating a loud rattling sound when the dryer is running. The design of the bathroom is strange. If the ante-room, with mirrors and extra shelf space, had a sink and the door was between the ante-room and the bathroom, it would be quite useful...but it lacks a sink or properly situated door. The shower/tub has a handheld shower nozzle, but prepare for a surprise because the cold water knob turns off counter-clockwise, opposite of convention. Something that looks like a soap dish embedded in the tiles is too small and slippery to hold even the tiniest soap; a bar on the dish can be used as a hand-hold to get into or out of the tub. There are plenty of towels, including four pool/beach towels. The AC in the bedroom is very noisy and intermittently puts out a blast of frigid air. One could hardly sleep soundly with it on. But if you run it when you aren't in the bedroom, some chillier air drifts out into the living room. Temperature was not a problem during our winter stay (there are screened louvers that open to the outside and nice ceiling fans), but it could be quite unpleasant in the warmer summer months, June through October. Housekeeping is minimal at best. During a one-week stay, you are promised towel exchange and trash service on the 4th day. We guess that the housekeeper spent about 2 minutes in our unit, during which time she left a large plastic trash bag draped over our bathroom sink. Some of our towels were exchanged. We had taken the trash out, but our container full of recyclables wasn't touched. Evidently, recyclables aren't "trash" at KBV. Landscaping is nice, but the associated downside is that you hear mowers and trimmers during most of the daylight hours. It's worse on weekends when there are similar -- but much louder -- un-mufflered sounds from the motocross race track (with no noise limits) immediately north of the KBV parking areas. The entrance to Kauai Beach Villas and Resort is off a very busy 3-lane highway connecting Kapa'a and Wailua with Lihue, with 2 lanes going toward Kapa'a. In the mornings (7 to 11 am, and until well after noon on Saturdays) the road is coned to permit two lanes of traffic to drive toward Lihue and just one toward Kapa'a ("contraflow"). Extra cones appear to prevent cars from making a lefthand turn toward Lihue from the Resort entrance road. It is unclear what you are supposed to do about this: improvise. (We were given wrong and actually dangerous directions in the KBV office.) Expect crowded traffic when you drive through towns (Kapa'a or Lihue) toward either the north or south shores; returning from the north, expect to take at least 20 extra minutes at almost any time of day to drive from central Kapa'a a mile-and-a-half to the Wailua River bridge on the ill-designed and crowded one-lane road. On the positive side, grocery stores (and other services, including Costco and Home Depot) are generally within five miles of KBV in either Lihue or Kapa'a. If you spend most of your time at the adjacent Resort, or elsewhere on the island, KBV may work for you. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Excellent location but tired resort.

Dec 1st, 2019

We always try to stay at Kauai Beach Villas but its getting harder to select this property. Its going thur to much drama on the management side and less attention is being paid to keeping the property in acceptable condition. The unit we like to stay in is a good example as we always ask for it. We can see the wear and tear taking place. The carpet is tired, the mirrors show silver coming off and turning black, balcony rails are corroded to the point of being a safety issue, AC units are rusty, furniture is tired and lived beyond its life cycle. They have done things like upgrade the linens to reduce costs but now you cannot just sleep with a sheet, its combined bedwear, we now know to take our own sheet as we seldom run the AC units. We called management when we arrived to tell them our closet door was off its track as well as the living room sliding glass door screen. No effort was made to fix these items while we where there. They just don't care anymore! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Good but not the best

Nov 29th, 2019

Kauai Beach Villas has many good points - 2 bedroom units are nice size, AC is OK, beds are good, full kitchen is good, etc. Check-in takes too long and the extra time spend being asked to participate in KBV activities is unnecessary. Unit could have been cleaner. Bed sheets are not good. But we were glad to stay here because of its central location to the north and west side of the island. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Kauai Beach Villas

Nov 26th, 2019

My wife and I spent a week here at the Kauai Beach Villas and I must say that given the chance, we would return again and again. First, proximity to the airport, shopping, dining, and beach access are all within reason and not more than a 15 minute drive. The rooms are in great condition and many amenities are available in the complex. We play tennis, so having the tennis courts is a plus. Well maintained, good surface. Strolling along the beach was wonderful as you can walk as far as 2-5 miles in either direction, although swimming is not recommended due to rough surf and currents. There are beaches for swimming and snorkeling nearby as well. Pool availability, jacuzzi availability, and barbeques made the visitation of the complex amenities a good deal. The whole complex is well maintained, the staff is friendly, courteous and very helpful. We hope to return here every yea. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

ok but not probable to return

Nov 21st, 2019

I think the $20 daily usage fee is outrageous. especially with rain and not even able to use the pools. What do we get the wifi, pretty high fee. Rooms need some update especially from water damage, and we had to call to get overhead light bulbs exchanged as dis not work. Also night we checked in there was still stuck on, caked on toothpaste in bathroom sink. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
