The condo is nice. Everything is in good condition and appears to be pretty new. New BBQ grills were just installed today. Good view from all of the rooms from the cliff top over the beautiful blue shades of the Pacific. The huge reef is also clearly visible and gives you an appreciation for what Hawaii has to offer under...

I'm fortunate to have parents who are part of the timeshare group that owns this property. My boyfriend and I have been saving up for a year for this trip which is about how far in advance we had to book this beautiful place. Our unit was on the 2nd floor looking over 1/2 golf course, 1/2 ocean. Waves crash,...

Ocean breezes through our unit at 202. Nice big unit though we shared it with a couple of little geckos. No ocean entrance but rather up on a cliff for great view and ocean sounds. No air conditioning but did not need it. We could have used a couple of footstools to go with the lounge area chairs. Good location...

This small complex in the beautiful area Princeville is certainly a jewel. The view from the cliffs is beautiful. Staff is very helpful and the unit is well furnished, large pand immaculately clean. Two cautions -- there are three levels and no elevator. And check in does not occur at the Shearwater but at another Wyndham property in Princeville. (RCI...

We had a two bedroom facing the ocean.... every day and night you could hear the waves crashing against the shore.... one bedroom had a king and the other two full size beds. Mattresses were good. Both rooms had an adjoining bathroom with showers. It has a full kitchen, dining and living room. It also had a stack washer and...

Beautiful resort with breathtaking views. The staff was most friendly and helpful. Our 2 bedroom condo was clean with all the comforts (and more) of home. Shearwater was our home for 2 weeks. We can't wait to go back. Highly recommend this resort to everyone visiting Kauai.

We loved the view of the ocean from our room and the pool. That is definitely the best feature of this resort. The room was nice but not spectacular. Princeville is a great location. Close to Hanalei and the North Shore beaches. The check in and service were both good. We stopped by to drop off our luggage since we...

This is the prime property of the Wyndham vacation properties on Kauai. It is small, intimate and spectacular. It sits high on the cliffs overlooking the bay to the lighthouse. There is a small pool and nice landscaping. The units come in 3 varieties and sizes with the third floor reserved for penthouses. It has its own parking. The cleaning...

My family of five, including three teens, stayed here for nine days in unit 202. The view was amazing and just what I was hoping for. The place was immaculately clean and very comfortable including the beds. Everything worked. I especially noticed how smooth the sliding glass doors and screens were, and all the blinds worked. The kitchen was well...

We recently returned from our trip to Kauai. We changed islands part way through our trip and were disappointed we did. We come to Kauai for R & R from stressful jobs.
