Coconut Coast condominium resort offers ocean views all around
Low-key Castle Kaha Lani Condominium Resort sits on six acres along Wailua Bay, on the east coast of Kauai. One- and two-bedroom condominiums in low-rise, walk-up buildings offer plenty of indoor space. Outside, the resort has everything a vacationing family wants -- a tennis court, heated swimming pool, putting green and barbecue areas where everyone can get together for a home-grilled meal. All of the condominiums are either oceanfront or have ocean views, and none is more than 50 to 100 yards from the rolling waves of the Pacific.
Highlights
  • All oceanfront and ocean-view condominiums at Castle Kaha Lani Condominium Resort
  • Tennis court
  • Putting green
  • Walk to family friendly Lydgate Beach Park
Location
The Royal Coconut Coast of Kauai lies between Poipu Beach to the south and Princeville and Hanalei Bay to the north. Nearby, the idyllic Wailua River, the only navigable river in Hawaii, winds its way through the lush countryside to mystical fern grottos and fantasy island waterfalls.
Rooms
Condominiums at Castle Kaha Lani Condominium Resort range from one to three bedrooms with 627 to 1,183 square feet of island-style space, plus private lanais for outdoor socializing and taking in the ocean views. All of the units are individually furnished and decorated, most with Hawaiian touches. Some are more upgraded than others.
Features
The Castle Kaha Lani Condominium Resort sits at the edge of the eastern rainforest of Kauai, with the ocean and miles of beach on one side and verdant fairways on the other. There is plenty for guests to do on-site, including relaxing on the sunny pool deck. But the location makes it ideal for active visitors -- it is right off the bike and walking path -- and for guests with an interest in Hawaiian culture and history, who can walk to the historic preserve just past Lydgate Beach Park.
Recreation

On-site recreation at Castle Kaha Lani Condominium Resort includes a freshwater pool, tennis court (lighted for nighttime playing) and a putting green. The resort is right near an extensive bike and walking path that winds from Wailua to Kapaa, and both Lydgate Beach Park and Wailua Municipal Golf Course are within walking distance.

Depends

These are owner units that are rented out when available. They were last updated in 1995 and the one we stayed in showed signs of wear that was unexpected. In addition, there was no air conditioning in the unit and for security reasons windows were requested to be locked at night. There were a coouple of ceiling fans but they were inadequate for cross ventilation and air circulation. Fortunately, we only stayed there one night.

Great central location

The staff was friendly and the condo was always clean. The location on the East side made a good central location, short drive to the South or North beaches and very close to numerous restaurants in Kapa'a. There is also a Wal-mart in Lihue if you don't have a CostCo membership. If you are a light sleeper bring earplugs. The whole island is overrun with chickens and they start crowing very early.

Family friendly

I wish they have small shopping area or restaurant near the hotel or within walking distance. If you stay in this hotel, you do need to rent a car for convenience sake. The hotel itself is very comfortable, large living room and dining area, and a clean kitchen that my wife really like. The hotel staff needs to be friendlier.

What a View

The Castle Kaha Lani was a fantastic choice for our family. We loved the condo vs. a single room so the baby could take a nap while we cooked or watched a movie. The Lanai was a wonderful retreat and being on the third story we had a beautiful view of the pool and then the ocean beyond. The grounds were quite kept. Upon arriving the staff was so helpful in all our room requests, and finding places to eat. The Location between the golf course and state park sure gave it a secluded feel. We loved having a tennis court at our disposal. The kitchen was fully equipped and very clean. The only negative was the age of the place starting to show with salt build-up around the windows, facets etc. But We didn't spend a lot of time looking at flaws. We would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a great value.

relaxing atmosphere

Castle Kaha Lani Condominium Resort, Lihue, has a relaxing atmosphere that is interrupted in the morning, and anytime, for that matter, by the large number of roosters roaming the grounds. Roosters are a mainstay of Kauai, but they are not welcoming to tourists who wish to sleep late. The hotel is located somewhat close to the beach but it is very inaccessible, because of a dirt road that separates the resort from the beach, which, at night, may be populated by random vehicles (either stopped or in motion), the terrain, which is not conducive to a stroll, and the lack of illumination. As for the condo itself, we had an ocean view, but the gardens and pool were in the forefront. The rooms were clean and well equipped. The housekeeping staff is helpful and prompt. It appeared that you got reused blankets and bedspreads along with your newly laundered sheets and pillowcases. The layout of the condo was pleasant, with a balcony. The resort is on a busy main road that is subject to bottlenecks. It is centrally located to other towns and sites on the island.

Kaha Lani is really a heavenly place

The Kaha Lani condos are located on the Eastern shore of Kauai. They are ideally located between the County golf course and Lydgate Park. It is the only private property nestled between these two pieces of land and located directly on the Pacific Ocean. I believe there is no other property in Hawaii that enjoys this similar geography. I've been staying at this property for over 15 years. The property is well maintained and although management of the property has changed over the years the present management team of Castle Resorts continue to keep the property just as I remember it the first time I stayed there. The condos are comfortable, have internet access and if you stay near the office you can enjoy their WiFi. The location is near the airport in Lihue and you can drive either North of South to any part of the Island with 45 minutes. This is a great location.

Location & views were perfect, on a great beach, nice condo well appointed, a 1 br with an additional 1/2 bath! Only negative was no air conditioning, and even with the ocean breezes, the condo was too warm during the day. It would be perfect if air conditioning were added. Enjoyed our accommodations and surrounding area.

Very relaxing and beautiful setting at this condominium complex

We had an ocean front unit with wonderful views. There is no air conditioning, but with the ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom and the windows open, it was pretty comfortable. The pool is very clean and my daughter was amazed how clear the pool water was. The kitchen is nice with a table to eat at in the dining area. Having two bathrooms was great with a family of four. There is a great walking and bike path near the beach a short walk from the rooms. The beach is also a short walk from the rooms. The beach is very long and clean and makes for fun walks on the sand. Restaurants and sites/activities are a very short drive from the complex. We would definitely stay here again!
