Don't do it! We booked here after researching many condo's online. We really wanted air conditioning and a clean quiet unit. Our condo was neither one of these. We stayed in a ground floor unit #814 and our friends were in #813. Both units were very noisy, it sounded like the people above were stomping on the floor. I think they were walking normally because our friends reported the same problem in their unit. We complained about the noise to the manager and it didn't help any, no offer to allow us to move to a different unit. When the mirrors on the walls are vibrating from the stomping above in the morning, you don't wake up very happy.
Our unit's carpet was in bad condition. It was ripped and torn and stained, it had 2 burn mark imprints from irons in the bedroom and living area. Our unit did not have a plasma TV or nice furniture. The unit next door did, it was very well appointed and clean, however the noise from above was the same.
I was told that we would be getting a few supplies to start with such as salt and pepper etc. We got a pepper shaker ( picnic kind) and a big salt container with no shaker. You had to pour it in your hand to put it on your food. We soon purchased a salt and pepper shaker. Everything was just done cheaply...even the DISHWASHER LIQUID WAS DILUTED with water! Be prepared to buy everything but laundry detergent. Our friends had better luck with having a supply of sponges and non dilluted dishwashing liquid etc.
The air conditioner was working off and on in both units. We called and our friends called the manager and it was never fixed. Two light bulbs were burned out when we arrived and we search for replacements and could not find any, so we called to ask where they were located. We were told that they were locked up and we would need to wait for maintenance to arrive to replace the bulbs. We waited and no one came. We called again the next day and they had forgot and then sent someone over to replace the bulb.
Make sure if you decide to come here to beware of the noise and I would make sure you do not get #814. The unit next door #813 is much nicer but still way too noisy!
On the bright side Kauai is beautiful and the south side of the island is the best! Don't miss snorkeling at The Beach House beach and mai tai's at Keioke's Paradise and Brunch at the Grand Hyatt. We stayed at the Grand Hyatt last time and it was wonderful but expensive.
