    I’ve been coming to KK1 for approximately 30+ years. The upgraded improvements are nice. This season seemed hotter than prior seasons. Some units have a/c, but most don’t. Never had it before anyway, but would be nice if it was consistent for all units. Simple things like no bath towel racks. Where are you suppose to put your towels? Liquid dish soap is the tiny, and I mean tiny size. Is it too much to ask for cereal bowls? We’re on the the third day of no wi-fi. A HUGE new issue is the transient camp next door. Tents, junk, lots of men a few women living there. Screaming, fighting, drug dealing, etc. Felt unsafe. Had to call police twice and got a fast response. Sign of the times. KK1 is a good place right on the beach. Unique, convenient to all areas.

    Wasn't estactic about the condo, misleading advertisement on the beach view, did not have a washer and dryer, just the hookups and we were there for 10 days. Cleaning fees was to high considering we got one cleaning with fresh towels 1 time while there. No air conditioning, that was misleading information also. Despite all of that Kauai was more than everything I imagined it to be. Will be returning to Hawaii in the future.

    I first stayed at Condo A310 in 2015 so I thought I would update my review. We stayed there August 22 - 27 2019. The place is just as nice as the first time we stayed. Very well maintained and the decor was updated. This place was and is immaculate and has AIR CONDITIONING! I cannot stress that enough......THIS UNIT (A310) HAS AIR CONDITIONING!! Do not take AC for granite, as I know that several units in this complex do not have AC. Added benefit: there is now an elevator on property that makes getting the luggage to the 3rd floor a breeze! Downside: it is oceanside, however there is no direct beach. They are going to be putting in a seawall in the next year which will create a nice beach for them. This is not a big deal as you just need to walk 20 yards south and you will be on a very nice beach....so nice the Monk Seals came to visit it 3 times during our stay. They are such amazing creatures and right there near Condo A310! We were able to pack half the clothes normally taken on a trip this length due to the washer and dryer that are available in this unit - made hauling one checked bag and one carry on for a family of three a breeze! This magnificent third floor condo unit faces the ocean for amazing views of the sunrise. Out the front door you can watch the sunset over “The Sleeping Giant”. During the day, you can open the front door and the balcony doors and catch a great cross breeze that keeps you comfortable. The condo has all the amenities on site that one needs including a fully equipped kitchen, two private bedrooms with king size beds and a den that can be closed off with a sleeper sofa to provide a third bedroom, as well as 2.5 baths. This privately owned and recently upgraded condo even has a full size washer and dryer. There are multiple gas grills outside where one can enjoy the evening by grilling fresh fish or a steak. In the beautiful grass courtyard is a swimming pool that looks out across the beach to the ocean. As they say, it is all about location! Located in Kapaa you have the luxury of being directly across the street from a Safeway grocery store, ABC Store and a Star Bucks. Food Land is a easy walk to the south and has some of the best Poke on the Island. We cannot wait until we get to go back to this little gem!

    HIDDEN FEES ON TOP OF HIDDEN FEES

    It's a nice place, good location etc. Not a hotel but a VRBO/AirBnB type. Website states, 24 hr front desk, free parking/wifi, washer/dryer. Rented to units & hit with hefty cleaning fee, property fee, & 2 other types of fee not stated & this was on each room. A hefty cleaning fee, a person would think that there was housekeeping, NOPE, the cleaning is after your stay. If you want another towel, you have to pay $12-$14 depending on the unit. There is no 24hr front desk. It's up to 11:30pm only, 1 unit came with parking, the other unit didn't & was told can park any stall that didn't say "Reserved" but ALL STALLS WERE MARKED RESERVED. You had to find parking by the trees & that is if you were lucky. If not, you had to park far & walk back. I was told the owner of one unit opted for reserved parking & the other owner of that one didn't opt to get reserved parking. No washing/dryer. The utensils in the drawer were dirty. Full loaded dishwasher left for us. The price of a two night stay with all the added hidden & extra fees, a person can stay someplace where they have a 24 hour front desk service/parking/wifi/changing of linens/towels, etc. Really nice place but at that price you can get a resort as big & cleaner place. The check out is 11 a.m. & both units, that were on across the pool of each other, and not next to each other, had a man try to come in before about 10:28 a.m. He didn't have his uniform on yet, had a back pack, tupperware full of food & a sodapop.

    horrible place
