This morning we had a late breakfast at a nearby restaurant called Eggbert's. I had the banana pancakes, and they were amazing!
This afternoon we went up to Princeville Ranch for a Jungle Valley Adventure. It had a little bit of everything - kayaking, hiking, zip lining, and swimming. Thankfully they had All Terrain Shoes that we could …
Of all days to wake up with a sick stomach. I didn't feel well when I got up. We went for a late breakfast at Eggbert's. Larry and Derek got omelets, Erin got banana pancakes and I stuck with scrambled eggs and toast. When we got back Larry, Derek and Erin got ready to go to Princeville Ranch for the Jungle Valley Adventure without me as I didn't …
This morning we went on a bike ride along the eastern coast of Kauai. It was only 10 miles round trip, but it's the longest bike trail on the island. And it was awesome, with views of the ocean almost the entire time.
The bike trail actually started just north of where we were staying. And there was a bike rental place conveniently right …
This morning we relaxed at the condo, but this afternoon I got to cross something off my bucket list. I went for my first helicopter ride! And it was amazing! We basically flew all the way around the island of Kauai, much of which you can't see by road.
The pictures do not do the helicopter ride justice, the views were incredible …
I was the last one up today after 8:00. We left this morning about 9:45 to walk to Kauai Cycle to rent bikes which is only a couple of blocks away. It was only $10 to rent them for 4 hours. There is a five mile bike path north along the shore beginning right at the bike shop. Our bikes were touring bikes with 3 speeds but pedal breaks. Erin had one …

I highly recommend Waipouli Beach Resort in Kapa'a. The condo itself is very upscale and large, with two master sweets and 3 bathrooms. The kitchen has excellent appliances, stainless steel, and granite counters. There is every cooking pot and utensil you could need. The dishwasher is a double drawer and is very quiet. The amenities include: a beach and large pool with water slides, whirlpools (one for adults only) and a long river with waterfalls and a cave. There is a fitness room, spa, and chiropractor. You could spend all your time at the resort but Kapa'a is centrally located to many worthwhile places to visit.

Amazing! Easy to find. But it's dark right now, so I will edit this later! Free parking right next to the building. Easy access code into the condo unit. The owner has been wonderful to deal with.

Historical Traveler Reviews Waipouli Beach Resort Kapaa
We just got back from the Outrigger Waipouli Resort after spending 2 weeks there and overall it is beautiful condo/resort - some of our more specific comments:
The Waipouli is a great place. It is nearly top notch, and with the introductory rates being offered it is a great deal. We stayed in a huge, oceanfront 2 bedroom condo (Bldg A, 2nd Floor) that was right on the ocean. Furnishings were good to excellent and the condo was very spacious for our family of 4. The grounds were surprisingly "mature" for a brand new resort.
When I started looking into a family vacation in Kawaii my first choice was a condo in Poipu Beach that could comfortably sleep a family of 8. It was hard to find and impossible if you wanted Air Conditioning. My wife contacted Outrigger about a different property and they suggested their brand new condo property in Waipuli Beach. I checked on Trip Advisor and it sounded good so we went.
My wife and I stayed here over the New Years Holiday. We stayed in a two bedroom condo with an ocean view. The condo was awesome! Great view and and it was beautiful. There was no food as the snack bar was not open, but I understand it is opening soon. I also understand they are building a restaurant on the property sometime this year. This resort is so convienient to everything. Right across the street is a couple of shopping centers with everything you need. You are about 25 minutes from Princeville or Poipu. There are also several restaurants within walking distance that are excellent. The breakfast at the Olympic cafe in Kapaa is wonderful. The pool area is really nice and the sand bottom spas are first class. Overall, this resort is a terrific place to stay. There was still some construction going on while we were there,(they were working on the snack bar) but it did not bother us. We didn't use the Aveda spa(the main area of the spa right off the lobby is under construction) but definately will use it next time we come. My wife and I have stayed in Maui many times mostly at the Kea Lani, while this resort is not as large, it is definately a great place to stay and we definately will be back in 07. By the way New Years Eve they had fireworks on the beach and they were fantastic. Great time!!
These accomodations were possibly the best our family has had during our numerous stays in the Islands. The condominium-type property rivaled any high-end Fairmont, Marriott, or Hyatt properties both in price and available amenities. Our oceanfront unit was exquisite within a stones throw to the beach providing all the high end living tools that are missing in the other hospitality chain properties. I was impressed with the pool and spa facilities. Something for every age from the toddler, teen and adult. The staff was outstanding from the front desk to the maintenance personnel. Everyone. had a can-do arttitude. This property is managed by the Outrigger hotel chain and it was very apparent that they know to treat their cliental, unlike their overpriced competion. There were no resort fees which is the latest scam adopted by Marriott and the other upscale resorts. We saved big bucks by buying our groceries at the nearby Safeway and Foodland stores and preparing our meals with upscale appliances that you never see in a resort environment.
This resort is brand new and right on the ocean. The ammenities are top of the line in the rooms. We spent 5 day there on our honeymoon. I cannot say enough about the resort. The staff were very friendly. The spa just opened and I had a wonderful massage in the outside cabana. This is a must stay resort. Cannot say enough about it!!!!
The "hotel" aspect of Waipouli has a lot to be desired. The room rate is overpriced for the lack of room amenities. No place to put toiletries in the bathroom have to us a small ledge on top of the fridge. Hanging wet towels on a bar around the toilet and next to the paper makes for a mushy roll.
I just returned home after a stay at the Waipouli Beach Resort (1/20-1/27). The resort is very beautiful, has won a major award for its design from the building community, and eventually will have all the amenities one would expect from an upper-end property after its final completion. The condo (we stayed in a 1 BR/2 BA partial ocean view) was immaculately appointed with Subzero refrigerator, Fisher and Paykel dishwashers, and stainless steel range and microwave oven in the kitchen, fine furnishings in the living room and bedroom (flat screen plasma televisions in each room) ,and an oversized bathroom with double sinks and separate tub/shower. The "two" bathrooms were actually one large bathroom with a dividing door that can be used to separate one toilet/sink/walk-in shower/single sink from the other toilet, Jacuzzi tub, double sinks that adjoins the master bathroom. The units also have full size stackable front-loading washer and dryers. I found the condo to be very inviting and relaxing, with my only disappointment being the small lanais. There is a Juliette balcony from the living room (no seating here) and the main lanai is off of the master bedroom which is barely large enough for two chairs. The only units with large lanais are the penthouse units.
We stayed at this condo for a week in a 1 bedroom/ 2 bath partial oceanview room. It was a very beautiful room. The decor was nice and it had everything you would need in a condo. It was in a good location in between the north and west areas. There were good restaurants and shopping within a short car ride or long walk.
We stayed at Waipouli Beach Resort (WBR) over the recent Thanksgiving weekend, after booking directly with the condo owner using PPBO.com. We knew the resort wasn't fully completed (we Did get a special introductory discount rate, as well).
