Pros and cons of Pahio Kauai Beach Villas

Any opinions on these villas? Is there much noise from the airport? I read comments about the pool. How bad is it?

There are several discussions on the Kauai Beach Villas on TA. I've never stayed there but it is not really close enough to the airport for you to hear any noise. There is a recent discussion on the pool earlier this month.

We really like it there---so much so that we own 2 weeks a year there. There is no noise from the airport. It's also in a rather isolated location on the east side---right between Lihue and Kapaa. The pool is just an ordinary concrete pool with steps into it. Nothing fancy, but it does have lounge chairs and bar b q pits by it. There's also a jacuzzi there which is pretty generic, also. We rather like the pool since noone else seems to use it much. It also has a large restroom shower area attached to the pool area---nice if you don't get a courtesy hour late in the day on day of departure and want a place to shower and change.

A big con would be if you are an exchanger and get a 1 bedroom 1 bath unit. Your unit will open up to the parking lots---no lagoon view or ocean view. But if you don't plan to look out your window much and like parking about 10 ft from your door, that could be a plus.

Slab,

Other questions on kauai beach villas.

We are hoping to re-new our lease here at banyon harbor....HOWEVER

We do get up to the Hilton, and have seen the kauai beach villas ( grounds only ).

We like the idea of the long beach area to walk, all the way up to near the wailua river and lydgate.

Also, only 3 miles into Lihue.

Do full time rentals come up, we seldom see anything on them ? ( like a year or two lease ).

Are there 2 bedrooms available ?

Are there two story, or only one story units ?

And is there someplace, where rentals would be listed , or do they generally have a RE company act as property managers ?

Cable for computer, TV, phone ( landline ) hook-ups

We have super excellent references, and take care of our lease residence, as if it were our own home. Maybe better.

anyway, we have not heard much about the Kauai Beach villas, and the UKG just lists the name, and that is about it.

Mahalo, for any scooops.

I'm not sure about that, but there are several privately owned units. I would imagine one of those owners would love a long lease occupant.

Are there 2 bedrooms available ?

Yes, lots of 2 bedroom units. Also 1 bedroom/2 bath units with the same views as the 2 bedroom units (lagoon or ocean) and 1 bedroom/1 bath with parking lot views (garden views, as they put it).

Are there two story, or only one story units ?

I believe all the units are 1 story, although the buildings do have 3 floors.

And is there someplace, where rentals would be listed , or do they generally have a RE company act as property managers ?

I've seen them at http://beachvillaskauai.com/ , vrbo, and even on ERA Stroman realty.

Cable for computer, TV, phone ( landline ) hook-ups

We are given free wifi there. Before that, we use to use dial-up.

anyway, we have not heard much about the Kauai Beach villas, and the UKG just lists the name, and that is about it.

We love the location---close to everything, yet still somewhat isolated. Great base for running north and south.
