Frequently Asked Questions FAQ
• Is this a 1 bedroom condominium?
Once a Hilton hotel, the Kauai Beach Resort is a condotel run by Aqua. You get resort luxury and individually owned rooms. My suite is studio size: 307 square feet with a 58 square foot balcony. Most units are about this size and have similar furnishings. Due to Kauai law for this type of accommodation(condotel), there is no cooking appliances in the room, but there is a coffee maker and fridge with freezer. Ice machine and microwave are just down the hall.
• What's the difference between my suite, renting from Aqua, or some other travel agency or website?
The difference is price, amenities, housekeeping, and choice of room. My suite is quite a bit less expensive overall and has one of the best views since it is on the highest floor with direct(instead of angled) ocean views. Aqua room rates start at $219/night plus tax. Mine starts at $124/night including tax.
Amenity differences(subject to change):
-no maid service during your stay unless you request it for an additional fee. Aqua has daily maid service. If you are staying more than 3 nights you may run out of what is initially supplied so I have extra supplies in bins under the bed should you need it. I also try to supply enough bath towels to last your stay. If you think you may need more towels once you arrive, let me know so I can send more
-I do not charge a daily resort fee. Aqua is $25/night
-the Aqua resort fee gives their guests the following extras: newspaper, DVDs, Playstation, free airport and shopping shuttle, and cultural activities. My guests can still use the pools, spa, restaurants, bar, room service, shops, business center, fitness center, car rental, and laundry room but may not participate in some of the hula show, lei making, and other on-site activities and would have to pay to rent DVDs or take an airport shuttle.
-I do not increase my room charge for more than 2 adults...Aqua does
-parking is $25/day plus tax for my guests. Aqua does not charge their guests separately(it's built into the amenity fee and room rate)
-during your stay, if you need assistance you contact myself or my on island contact person. An Aqua guest would go to the front desk.
I know this seems like a lot of stuff but I am hoping to clarify what your experience will be like at the resort. For most guests, your enjoyment will be equivalent to someone paying $100 more per night and these differences often are not noticeable or relevant. Plus you are saving a bunch of money and getting one of the best rooms in the resort!
• Is this an ocean view suite?
YES. And it is not just visible out on the lanai/balcony sticking your head around the corner. It is a straight on view from the highest floor in the resort. Other suites may be less expensive, but you are getting a mountain or lagoon view.
• Is there a kitchen?
No, but I have a nice sized fridge with freezer and a coffee maker. There are no plates, bowls, glasses, or utensils. A microwave and ice machine are down the hall. Sorry, Kauai law for this type of property does not permit cooking appliances inside the unit
• What is there to do?
For short stays, you may want to keep it simple and stay at the resort enjoying the restaurants and bar, walks along the beach, tennis, spa, or one of the pools. For longer stays, booking a rental car ahead of time and picking it up at the airport makes sense. With a long term car rental to explore all over, there is an additional parking charge. Car rental rates vary depending on where you rent, so shop around. This great mid-island location puts you less than a hour away from the tourist activities on the north shore and south shore
• What is the bedding arrangement?
The suite is ideal for 2 adults and 2 children using the king size bed, lounger, and twin sized air mattress. I also provide a pack and play crib for babies and toddlers. The lounger is 53 inches long by 27 inches wide. Maximum accommodation is 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children.
• Do we need our own beach towels?
The resort will provide towels to use at the pools or beaches.
• Is there a resort fee?
No, not if you are booking directly from an owner like myself. You can still enjoy the fitness center, pools, and more.
• What about WiFi?
WiFi is now free in the lobby, restaurants, and room.
• Does the suite have air conditioning?
Yes. And nice ocean breezes.
• Other amenities in the room?
Blue Ray DVD player, LG flat screen TV, safe, towel drying rack, ice bucket, fridge with freezer, microwave, iron, ironing board, and hair dryer. The air mattress and crib are in the closet and easy to set up. The air mattress inflates in 90 seconds with an electric pump and is quite comfortable. The crib comes with a bassinet attachment.
• Where is suite #2508 located?
It is on the top floor(5th) of building 2. This is near to where you check in and also houses dining and shops. Elevators will get you to your floor. Most other buildings are only 3 floors. I believe this is the only building with the lounge area containing the microwave and some vending machines

This is an independent owner rental.
Questions and concerns can go through me or the on island contact once you arrive. The resort has their own separate rental program so they may not be equipped to assist in some matters.
I will provide an on-island contact to answer any questions. I am readily available by phone, text, and email to ensure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. I am located in southern California.
I chose to own a place on Kauai since it has great natural beauty, relaxing lifestyle, and almost perfect weather...there's a lot to like.
I enjoy the Kauai Beach Resort because of it's convenient location to the island's biggest town and central location for exploring north or south. Relaxing on the lanai of my suite looking out at the ocean view is a great way to start the morning or unwind after a day of adventure.
