“Family vacation”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Took two kids for a three day vacation on the lake. We stayed in building f with a lake view. We appreciated the quiet out of the way place and the beautiful view of the lake. There is a boat dock which would be great if you had one. The condo had two bedrooms, two bathrooms and one shower. The decorations were outdated and would look better with none. There is a washer and dryer and even had soap and dryer sheets. There was a cooler too. So much was there to use. The kitchen was great with full fridge and microwave. We did not use oven or fireplace. Pull out couch and plenty of pillows were appreciated by two kids. Would go back. Was comfortable, quiet and had everything we needed. We could see pool and swimming area but did not have time to enjoy them. We went hiking, caving and boating. Beautiful location.

We went to the Kapilani resort for three days during memorial day weekend. I took my whole family (Wife and 2 Kids 8 & 3). We had a blast!! The place is very nice we stayed in the beach houses. It's not directly on a beach but it's directly over the lake, still very nice. The people are super layed back and the location is perfect for shopping and quiet time or partying either way this is a great place to stay. I would definitely stay at the Kapilani again.

My family and I went to Kapilana last year and are planning to return again later this month. We stayed in unit 2E (and will stay in 2E again this time), a 2-bedroom 2-bath condo which was perfect for us. It is farther away from the pool, so it was quiet and felt very secluded. The entire complex is so peaceful with amazing views of the water and boats. We were close to everything, including the outlet malls and walking trails. But the best part is how clean, well-maintained and lovely everything was in our condo and the excellent service. Highly recommend!

My husband and I spent a weekend here in May before the busy season. It was very quiet and enjoyable and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Plus, it is in the heart of Osage Beach right near all restaurants and a short drive to the strip.

The grounds were clean. There were plenty of docks that allowed my husband to fish to his heart's content. The docks had crappy beds throughout and bass were jumping out of the water.

We stayed in the beach houses, which were quaint studio apartments close to the water. They have a well stock kitchenette, two beds, and a nice tv. It was clean and nicely located.

Downsides: There is no central air/heat so the heat blew on us the entire evening. The bedspread was itchy, but we remedied that by a quick stop at Target. The key would not unlock the door, half the time. However, I feel like those are minor inconveniences compared to the pluses.

Next time (and we will be going back) we will be staying in a condo instead. Another couple let us take a walk through of their two bedroom place and it was definitely a step up with plush carpeting, private balcony, fire place, and newer furniture. They are definitely worth the extra money!

Room Tip: Choose the condos!

Overall I would rank this as one of the best valued places I've stayed. Two nights for less than $120, granted it was a special but still a hell-of-a-deal. The owners are very sweet and accommodating to your needs and services. The beach houses overlook the lakeside and are nice quaint little rooms with all the necessities. Since we were the first guests of the season nobody else was here but I imagine it is a fun spot during the summer with a large game room stacked with arcade games and the works. It was a wonderful stay and we will be back.

We remember you well and are happy that you were two of the first guests to enjoy the upgraded Beach House with it's new stoves, refrigerators, vanities and flat screen TVs. We look forward to hearing from you again when you make your next reservation - who knows, there may be another Special posted here! Hopefully the lake level will be up to the Beach House patio so you can watch the fish while you drink your coffee.

Kapilana Resort is an excellent place to stay while you are enjoying Osage Beach. I truly loved this resort, I didn't want to leave. Looking forward to our next stay. Couldn't ask for friendlier service.
