Kapaa Sands Review

An old rock etched with Japanese characters known as kanji reminds you that the site of this condominium gem was formerly occupied by a Shinto temple. Studio and two-bedroom rentals—equipped with full kitchens and private lanai—are a fair deal at this older property. Studios feature pull-down Murphy beds to create more daytime space. Ask for an oceanfront room to get the breeze, as there's no air-conditioning.

    Best deal I have ever seen for lodging

    WE had just a wonderful time staying for 10 days at this Kauai hotel, which was about as retro as it can get, while still providing the amentities one likes. We walked all over Kapaa, and felt like this was our home. If you want to feel more like a islander, and less like a tourist at a fancy hotel, this works great. I can't tell you how much this made for the most relaxing time, since we didn't feel like we were spending tons on lodging, but it was quaint. I recommend like crazy!
