“As nice as in the pictures”
My wife and I stayed in 521 for four nights over New Year's, Dec 2014 to Jan 2015. I planned our island hopping trip in November, so was quite lucky to grab this place last minute. Having read a so-so review, I was apprehensive, but the unit turned out to be nicer than expected. Carpeting was brand new. The mattress was comfortable so apparently it was replaced since the bad review came out. The noise from Poipu Rd. is a bit of a nuisance, but traffic sparse especially after 9 pm. We both slept well until the roosters started at dawn. During our stay, nights were cool enough to allow closing some of the windows. FWIW, the louvered windows often used in mild climates like Kauai's don't block as much noise as double hung or casement windows. Windows open or closed, you do hear an occasional loud pick-up or jeep go by. This unit does not have AC, so that may be something to consider for summer bookings. However, there are ceiling fans in every room, including the bathroom, and the ceilings are high and that should help keep the place a little cooler than otherwise. The musty smell someone mentioned was present mainly in the entry vestibule on the ground floor, but the rest of the unit lies on the first floor that is well aired. The unit was tastefully decorated, the kitchen well appointed, internet fast enough, bathroom decent and the staff cordial. Grounds are well maintained and the surrounding developments equally nice. We ran out of time to try the pool or the tennis courts. Also, there's lots of space to spread out - not pictured is a long row of cabinets in the hallway with a useful 'counter top' around 12 feet long. Above all, the location was perfect for us as we balanced our time between exploring the island, excursions, and laying out on the nearby beaches. More so than other parts of the island we visited, Poipu has a resort feel. The New Year's gathering and fireworks show in Poipu Beach were a pleasant surprise. We wish we could have stayed longer, but Maui beckoned.
Response from the manager Aloha TripAdvisor Member, Suite Paradise has a large inventory of beach condos and homes from which to select for that perfect vacation in paradise. We have a Quality Assurance Manager who works with our owners to update their properties and we thank you for recognizing her efforts. I have notified our housekeeping staff about the musty smell in the entryway (sometimes this occurs as a result of all the wet and sandy foot traffic through the front door). Some of our beach resorts are located near our small country roads that, as you indicated, can at times be a bit noisy before 9pm. Also most of our homes and condos on Kauai, as is the case with this particular condo, do not have air conditioning. This is because of our famous trade winds that provide us with a more natural air conditioning. Suite Paradise has a selection of many beach resorts that are located a distance away from our country roads, and a selection of air conditioned condos. Our reservationists are always delighted to help you select the beach home or condo of your dreams. Just give us a call! Sincerely, Liz Parisi email@example.com
“spacious condo with all amenities”
If out and about during the day it's very nice, a little warm during the day due to no air conditioning.
Response from the manager Aloha TripAdvisor Member, We're happy to hear you enjoyed your spacious condo with all of it's wonderful amenities. Our constant trade winds in Kauai serve as a natural air conditioning in our island homes. Suite Paradise also manages a selection of air conditioned beach resorts that you can reserve at somewhat higher rates for your next visit. You can find this selection on a link at the bottom of our home page. Aloha, until we meet again. Liz Parisi firstname.lastname@example.org
“Road Noise, bed worn out”
With the amount of road noise you hear in this condo, you might as well not go to Hawaii, just go to any big city condo and open the windows. There is no air conditioning, and it definitely smells old and musty in there. Don't let the new kitchen fool you - the condo needs new carpets/flooring, and better ventilation in the bathroom. Also, there is no privacy going from the bathroom to the bedroom - people can see you easily from the street, and there are no curtains to close. So, you have to get completely changed in the bathroom and make sure you bring your clothes before taking a shower. Also, the hot water tank runs out very quickly, and they nickel and dime you to death (e.g. no kitchen garbage bags - you have to buy your own). The towels smelled so bad that we went to Walmart to buy new ones. Also, the bed is completely worn out, even though it is a king size. We were on our honeymoon, and still enjoyed ourselves overall, but it was in spite of this condo. I was fooled into staying here because of the nice pictures, but they don't show you the view of the busy road right outside. Forget about any peace and quiet when you stay here.
Response from the manager We are sorry that the guest did not enjoy their stay in Kahala 521. We would have loved to have gotten this information while the guest was here so that we could have offered other options and rectified the issues at that time. The morning following guest arrival we did a welcome call to make sure that accommodation is comfortable and enjoyable. The guest was not in but a voicemail message was left. Our quality assurance manager whom oversees the interior of the condo will review the comments regarding carpeting/flooring and the issue with curtains between bathroom to bedroom area. This will be reviewed with the owner of Kahala 521. Our housekeeping manager was also forwarded this review and will rectify the situation regarding the old, musty smell of the condo as well as the bad odor of the towels.
The condo was terrific. Very spacious, wonderful high pitched ceilings with two large decks. Great updated kitchen with everything you need. The layout is perfect, the bedroom is at the other end of the living area. Walking distance to the beach. Spacious well manicured grounds. 8 Tennis courts/club very well run for a minimal fee. Pretty much a "smoke free" complex which is great. Restaurant on site. The one downfall of this unit is that it is one of the closest to the street so you will get street noise. We closed the bedroom windows at night and for the most part there is no traffic from 1130 pm to 6 am. (I overlooked the traffic considering the good price) All in all I would recommend this complex
“An awesome experience”
Loved the condo, not the location so much..too close to the road and with no air conditioning (which was ok also, very comfortable with fans)it was noisy (especdially early in the morning). I can't think of any other thing that was a negative. The condo had everything a person would need (even beach toys)and was decorated very pretty and entertaining. The grounds are very beautiful and makes walking to the beach worth every step.
“We had a great time”
Excellent, the accomidations were pleasant & clean. the location was great & having the restaurant close by was good too.
“Great lodging on Kauai”
We had a great vacation in Kauai and our condo contributed to that. We appreciated the pool/whirlpool on the property, the comfort of the condo, beach chairs provided, and that we could walk to the beach. The only downfall was the close proximity to the road, but the condo was so reasonable we could deal with that. It wasn't too noisy. It was also close to shopping and other attractions.
This was our first trip to Kauai. We had a great time. People were very friendly. Accommodations were spacious and clean. We enjoyed our walks and the weather.
