Fodors has this to say about Kalapaki Bay which is across the street:
KALAPAKI BEACH REVIEW
Five minutes south of the airport in Lihue, you'll find this wide, sandy-bottom beach fronting the Kauai Marriott. This beach is almost always safe from rip currents and undertows because it's around the backside of a peninsula, in its own cove. There are tons of activities here, including all the usual water sports—beginning and intermediate surfing, bodyboarding, bodysurfing, and swimming—plus, there are two outrigger canoe clubs paddling in the bay and the Nawiliwili Yacht Club's boats sailing around the harbor. Kalapaki is the only place on Kauai where sailboats—in this case Hobie Cats—are available for rent (at Kauai Beach Boys, which fronts the beach next to Duke's Canoe Club restaurant). Visitors can also rent snorkel gear, surfboards, bodyboards, and kayaks from Kauai Beach Boys. A volleyball court on the beach is often used by a loosely organized group of local players; visitors are always welcome. Families prefer the stream end of the beach, whereas those seeking more solitude will prefer the cliff side of the beach. Duke's Canoe Club restaurant is one of only a couple of restaurants on the island actually on a beach; the restaurant's lower level is casual, even welcoming beach attire and sandy feet, perfect for lunch or an afternoon cocktail. Amenities: parking; showers; toilets; water sports; food and drink. Best For: swimming; surfing; partiers; walking.
I was born and raised on Oahu and have spent most of my life in Hawaii. I presently live and work on Kauai and will retire here. I love the slow pace and beauty of Kauai!
Diane Dahlberg purchased this condo in 2013
I like the central location on Kauai of this property, the close proximity to the airport, beaches, walking paths, and shopping centers.
This condo is on the ground floor with 2 lanais and there are nice, gentle breezes that come through. It is in a quiet location in the complex and has a nice garden view.
It is located in an ideal central location on the island and is the perfect place to explore Kauai from!
Thanks for the clean, comfortable and hospitable condo for our stay. We really enjoyed our stay here!
(We added a beach umbrella to the beach supplies in the closet)
A great home away from home. All the amenities we needed and close to shopping, all activities and the beach. Diane was wonderful to work with. We felt very much at home and well taken care of. We would not hesitate to stay here again!
We stayed here for one week in May. The apartment was well stocked, clean and comfortable. The location is near the beach, harbor (where cruise ships dock) and shops. Diane was great to deal with. Parking was a bit of a challenge at times, but was only a temporary problem as work was being done on garages. We used the BBQ, attended the presentation with Kiki featuring Kauai activities (not a timeshare one), and borrowed their free chairs and snorkeling equipment (from main office). Local stores/restaurants we used and recommend- Times supermarket, Duke's Barefoot bar. We also enjoyed a catamaran ride (Blue Dolphins) along the Na Pali coast. We visited several beaches, not crowded. The lighthouse (Kilakua?) on the north shore was worth a visit, for the view and for the bird sanctuary. Kauai is beautiful, we'll be back.
If price and location are your thing this is a place for you. We have stayed at the Banyan Harbor Resort a few times over the years and stayed in different units owned by different owners. This unit was functional and clean and being on the first floor was nice and also not so nice, no stairs but very noisy with creeky floors from above.
The unit is nice with everything you need for a long stay and great for families to save money by making meals at home in the nice kitchen. It seems that the resort is about 60/40 full time residents to vacationers and this is also good and bad. This makes the vibe feel more like condo apartment living than an actual resort. The pool was nice with great views of the bay but this unit was the furthest away from it but just a few min walk. A few pros and cons for you
Pros: close to airport, park and ocean,
Great for families . Nice Price, nice pool
Cons: noisy from above and from road noise at rear of unit. Musty smell. Not really a resort, took 10 days the get deposit refunded. Lack of Parking was an issue a few times while we were there. AC only in livingroom and got very hot in bedrooms.
Conclusion: if saving money is your main thing and you are not expecting a true Kauai Resort experience this is the place for you. Great place to make meals, shower and sleep.
This rental was perfect. There wasn't one thing we needed that wasn't there right down to ice cubes and a hammer to open our macadamia nuts.sacks for groceries shopping. Coffee and fixing til you get to store. An awesome selection of books to read. Maps and brochures. A huge laundry detergent. We were just happy. Diane goes way out of her way as do the banyan group. We had a great barbecue at the pool 15 people wedding party. They said our condo. Pool and surroundings were way better than theirs and they paid lots more too. There are close by smoking benches which is where we meet lots of great people. Right across the street is the bay. All kinds of shops. Restaurants.A tavern. We Rate this condo and banyan a definite 10 plus. We'll be back. 2 things we had trouble with but not diane fault. The buses don't seem to follow the schedule so car is best. And none of us could work the TV remote. I think it was operator error and we only tried once and didn't miss it one bit. Again thanks diane and all.. rent this ... you won't be sorry. Kathy e55
It was perfect for our needs. I appreciated the coolers and beach towels. It was pleasant and.clean.Thank you so much Diana. Nancy
We had the perfect vacation. Loved the condo. It was just as presented on the site and everything needed was included. The furnishings were comfortable and well maintained. There was great information for us to connect with things to do and places to visit. The location was so convenient to the airport, shops, and making day trips to any part of the island. I'd definitely stay here again.
Located between Nawiliwili Harbor and Kalapaki Bay, this condo is in the perfect location to explore the island of Kauai! 5 minutes from the airport, 5 minutes to Costco, 20 minutes to the south shore(Poipu),45-60 minutes to the north shore(Hanalei,Princeville) and west (Waimea Canyon). 15 minute drive to the multi use path that stretches 6 miles along the coastline in Kapaa.
