Great property, great management
While almost everything about this property is great, it is not 5 star luxury, just 4 star. But an excellent 4 star to be sure. Loved the little add-ons such as lawn chairs, coolers, beach umbrellas, beach towels for our use. Very nice touch. And the Poipu location was excellent. The one glitch was non-functioning a/c. Apparently a lizard got inside the main unit and fried the circuit board and repairs were not possible during our stay, although valiantly attempted. If booking this unit, I recommend confirming that the a/c is repaired before committing to it.
Mahalo Dale for your review and comments. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the unit and all the little extras that you appreciated during your time on Kauai. We understand your frustration and apologize for the problem with the air conditioning. Waikomo is full of rich gardens and tropical wildlife and we simply cannot control nature. We fully inspected the property prior to your arrival and this damage after the inspection, only hours before your stay. We are sorry that this happened and, as you mentioned, we tried our best to get it up and working while you were here. We worked hard to get the part overnighted and attempted the reair the next day, however, this was unsuccessful. We are sorry that this impacted your stay. I’ve been in touch with the property manager to be sure it’s been repaired. Mahalo once more and we look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou!

Great property, good location fairly close to the beach. We loved the jungle feel and open air in the condo. Good snorkeling and boggie boarding close by.
Mahalo Nicole for your 5-star review and comments. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the unit and that you were able to enjoy the snorkeling and boogie boarding! We look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou!

This is perfect southshore condo. AC and fans. Great balcony, bbq and pool area.
We had a lovely stay. The condo and grounds are perfect. The upstairs bedroom is a loft style, so not much privacy. But you feel like you are in a tree house being on the third floor.
Mahalo Annessa for your 5-star review and comments. We are glad that you found the condo and the grounds to be perfect for your stay. We are looking forward to hosting you again soon! Aloha and a hui hou!
UPDATE: Air Conditioning Added Throughout Unit in October 2019
Stay cool with new split system air conditioning in all rooms.

Mahalo Oksana for your review and comments. We will be sure to address the tub. Aloha and we look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou.

A very nice unit but with one critical flaw.
When renting any privately owned property the condition of the unit can never be determined by looking at the photos. However, Unit 533 at Waikomo Streams scored pretty well in this respect. There was some typical wear and tear as is often found in a rental but not significant enough to diminish the experience. The one big disappointment was a very uncomfortable mattress in the loft bedroom. One side of the double bed sagged terribly (about 3 inches), making for a less than restful night and a stiff back in the morning. Unfortunately, this type of issue is not something the management company can address since they don’t own the unit. Hopefully, this review will motivate the owners to take action and future renters won’t have to endure what we did. Otherwise, the location was good, the complex was quiet, the pool was nice and well maintained and the condo was well stocked with assorted beach gear. The management company (Parrish) was accommodating and helpful, allowing us to check out at noon rather than 10am after we mentioned our dissatisfaction with the bed. Parrish manages a large variety of residences on Kauai so, while we certainly wouldn’t eliminate the Waikomo Streams complex on our next visit, we’ll definitely look at a number of other options as well. This was our 5th trip to the islands and we were very happy with this vacation. In our island travels, Kauai offers the best overall Hawaiian experience both for first time visitors or anyone returning to Hawaii.
Mahalo Kent for your review and comments. We will be sure to pass on your notes on the bed. I know these owners care very much about providing the best experience possible. We look forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha.

Property maintenance was very good
The unit was a miserable experience. When we arrived it was over 90 degrees in the lower portion with the loft at least 5 degrees hotter My daughter ended up sleeping on floor in the lower level. One of the fans provided did not move any air. After we carried the luggage up the three flights of stairs, my wife and I took a shower only to discover the drain in the bathtub/shower was plugged The next day we found a hardware store and purchased two fans that actually moved some air. (We took them with us). We never used the loft in the 8 days that we had booked, as the temperature up there was not tolerable for sleeping The complex is convenient to the beach and shopping. A different unit may make the experience more enjoyable
Aloha Mark, I must say we are surprised by your review. When we spoke to you about the garbage disposal and had maintenance attend to it, there was no mention of the shower drain or the need for more fans. We certainly would have attended to both had we known. When you requested the late out, you stated you were “…having such a great time and don’t want to go home…”. We do know that it can get warmer when the trades are low and the sun is high, and are sorry that you did not have a more enjoyable stay. We can certainly guide you to a unit with AC for your next visit. Mahalo.

Loved our stay
???? The location was good for us, being not particularly beach people. It was central enough to explore the west side of the Big Island which is what we wanted. Also I think we avoided the resort type fees by staying here. Free parking. Friendly staff. Beautiful grounds. BBQs available. Great kitchen with everything you’d need, except oddly no kettle…

Great location, large condo unit with everything you need.
Would book here again without a doubt. Roosters are slightly annoying but luckily I’m a morning person.
Spacious and affordable
There may not be direct beach access, but the price is right and the 2bedroom unit was clean and spacious, plus was stocked with bench accessories. A nice lanai overlooking beautiful grounds, which unfortunately did include some very loud frogs croaking overnight. You can walk 10 minutes to the beach by the Sheraton and Kiahuna Plantation or less than 5 minutes to shopping and restaurants. Only complaint is that the beds were too soft.

Great place to stay!
Waikomo Stream Villas was the perfect place to stay for my friends and I. It is in a great location within walking distance to shops, restaurants and groceries. A very short drive to Poipu beach parking. The amenities where great- the kitchen has all you need to prepare a meal, there are grills onsite as well. Very clean and quiet. The Master bedroom and loft had very comfortable beds. The pull out bed could be suitable for kids but not very comfortable. There was an air mattress in our closet as well. Fans are provided because there is no central air. It got a little warm but not unbearable. It is definitely no frills but has a Hawaiian feel and you should be our enjoying yourself anyway! The staff was super friendly and I would book a stay here again for sure. Even despite the roosters that can’t tell the difference between day and night- lol!
Mahalo Shawn for your review. We will check out the sleep sofa mattress, but in general we do find they are no comparison to a normal bed. Thanks for the heads up. Sorry about the roosters…Kauai’s alarm clock with no set time. People love them or hate them for sure…
A comfortable place to stay in Poipu
We booked #533 for a week.
It is spacious, with an open kitchen, dining area, large living room space, lanai, and laundry facilities in the master bath.
Extras such as pool towels, beach chairs and umbrella and masks and snorkels are provided.
The view from the lanai is lush jungle, full of bird song.
The pool is beautifully-tiled and a good size, with kiddie pool attached.
It is well-located for shopping and eating out, close to 2 shopping malls.
It is not really walking distance to the beach, as I expected.
The condo itself is quite dark.
The second bedroom is actually an open loft, which may be a problem for some.
Road noise through the master bedroom windows was a problem in the morning.
Pros: Location Garden setting spacious, nicely furnished rooms!
Spacious lovely apt. Beautiful gardens w exotic plants. Close to beaches & restaurants. Nice stay!!
Enjoyed the accomodations thoroughly - we'll be back....
We enjoyed everything about our 3 week stay in Unit 533. It is spacious, clean, breezy (thanks to many louvered windows and the tradewinds) and most definitely gives you a feeling of being in a part of paradise. The grounds are lush and well maintained. The koi pond and stream and assorted bridges add to the tropical feeling. The swimming pool is clean and very refreshing to dip in on a hot afternoon if you choose not to go to the beach. There are beaches within walking distance from the complex. Everything you might need is in this unit. It was especially handy to have the apartment-sized washer and dryer on hand. The location of the complex is convenient to some shopping and eateries which can easily be reached by walking. The Waikomo Stream Villas complex, with its beautiful, tropical gardens, is a small jewel in the area because most of the surrounding properties have been developed and seem a bit bare of vegetation. We would most definitely stay here again. (At one point, 4 family members came to join us and the unit easily held us all with no feeling of crowding). Also, dealing with Parrish Collections, to rent this accomodation ,was a pleasure.
1970s bathrooms, lots of space
The master bedroom was quite comfortable, lots of closet space, and the kitchen was very functional – we love staying in condos so we have the option of cooking. I also liked all the extras in the front closet – coolers, boogie boards, etc. And it is always fantastic to have large beach towels available! My major complaint was the designation of the interior – it was listed as a “premiere, best of the best, 80% remodeled within the last five years.” Well, the bathrooms were straight out of 1970 and the upstairs one smelled very musty. The carpet was clean (although why anyone in a tropical climate has carpet is a mystery I have yet to solve), but a 1970s shade of brown. And I really feel there is no way you could sleep 2 more people on the fold out in the living room – it was not even comfortable to sit on. When we arrived a lot of the dishes had to be re-washed.
Su casa es mi casa!
My family had a grand time. The condo felt like home away from home. It came fully equipped with everything that we needed including boogie boards and beach chairs. It also helped that there was a unit washer and dryer. We really enjoyed a fun and relaxing time on the island. We would stay here over and over again. We appreciated the staff’s kindness and professionalism. Thanks Novella and Joanne!
Great for Heavenly Time off
I stayed in Waikomo Stream Villas in July/08 for one week. I had 4 of my family and friends and we all loved this place. I would not change a single thing that were equipped there. I’m from New York and their facility met my expectation. Some people may think it’s too hot without A/C unit but my friends were fine without it. It has nice breeze and fan also helps. It’s especially affordable if you have group of people. Hawaii trip can be expensive but this way you can make it affordable trip by chipping the cost. It is located in perfect place in South shore of Kauai. Poipu beach was amazing and we also went to Hayatt Luau which was like 3 minutes of driving. There are several restaurants and Bar near the Waikomo. Kauai is pretty tiny island so everywhere was pretty accessible from the Waikomo. We went to Ke’e Beach which is the end of North shore but it didn’t take too long to get there from the Waikomo (about 1.5 hour to 2 hours depending on the traffic). I highly recommend this place for everyone. It’s rather a community than a resort or place full of tourists b/c people actually live there and rent the place out whenever available. So you can stay there quietly without bumping into tourists-tourists. To be fair, I would say that absence of A/C may turn some people off although it was fine with me. I left some of my belongins there and they were extremely nice enough to wash them and send all of the items to me with reasonable charge.
