                            We stayed for 2 weeks from Sept 28 - Oct 11 2013. Loved the condo the minute we walked through the door. Fabulous view, beautiful beach, quiet pool. Well furnished, comfortable. Felt like we were at home. Thank you for making our vacation memorable.

                            We were delighted with our stay here. The condo itself is set up extremely tastefully , comfortably and thoughtfully with everything one might need in terms of kitchen supplies, towels, etc. The facilities are superb and include a lovely pool, private beach and gorgeous landscaping. The location is convenient as it is adjacent to the miles long, ocean walkway and next to a shopping center that has a great farmers' market. Kapaa itself is within easy driving distance for outings in the north and the south. The owner was lovely to deal with and responded quickly to any concerns. We can't imagine a better place and would highly recommend this to anyonen.

We feel so honored to have you enjoy our "Island Home" as much as we do. Our cleaning staff is very good and helpful when small issues may arise. Thank you again for trusting us with your most special vacation on Kauai! Until next time.....Aloha and Mahalo Nui Loa! Linda Herceg

                            We wanted a relaxing and fun vacation in Kauai. This condo was wonderful with all the luxuries of home--even two recliners overlooking the beautiful grounds and ocean. The number one requirement on our list is cleanliness.The condo was spotless. This condo is located conveniently for walking the beach, shopping at the Coconut Mall and having breakfast at Eggberts. A short drive through Kapa'a gives you access to fun shops and many restaurants. Our favorite activities were a helicopter ride, the dinner theater featuring the musical,SOUTH PACIFIC, and the Hindu Temple. We hope to return to Kauai and would definitely consider staying here again. The owner, Linda was very helpful throughout our stay.

                            Absolutely amazing condo! Truly felt like home except here the bed was more comfortable, the pillows were better, the kitchen was equipped with everything imaginable, the view from the lanai overlooked the pool AND the ocean which was just steps away, and there was always a nice breeze all the way through the condo. Did not need AC unit which is also provided. Between the trade winds breeze and the 4 ceiling fans,it was very pleasant! So nice to be able to enjoy fresh cool air instead of central AC! The pictures on the website are "true to life" but really do not do this condo, the location, and the view justice! The condo also was immaculate! The owner has been extremely accommodating and helpful. We hate to leave, and we will be back. Oh just FYI this location (east coast at Wailua) is exactly half-way between the north and south coasts which really makes touring the island easy.

                            My husband and I could not have been more pleased with this condo. It was beyond perfect and the photos are accurate. Owner was very responsive and helpful. APARTMENT: Immaculately clean, and the kitchen had lots of tools to cook with. Everything was so comfortable, from the lazy boy chairs in the living room to the bed. We traveled in August and actually didn't need the air conditioner with the cross breeze and the fans...and we typically always need air conditioning. Still it was comfortable knowing there was a back-up. The balcony has a great view of the beach, spent a lot of evenings out there eating some poke & sushi we picked up from the grocery store a mile up the road. THE BEACH: The beach is gorgeous. The surf gets a little rough in the afternoon, but that wasn't a problem because there is a little 20 ft wide protected enclosure made with lava rocks so you can still be in the ocean without worrying about the waves. You can't really see it in the pics, but it's completely safe for little kids and people who aren't as comfortable with the ocean. LOCATION: about as "central" as you can get in Kauai, equally situated b/n the north and south shore. We loved having the ability to make a decision on where we wanted to go in the morning and not having to worry about planning a long excursion. EXTRAS: We loved the basket of beach stuff (chairs, mats, foam floaty things). I also loved the tropical themed decor that managed to create this exotic hawaiian oasis atmosphere in a non-tacky/sense overload way (I know this seems silly but when I travel to a tropical island, it's fun to stay in a place that keeps reminding you where you are rather than stuffy modern decor). Also, detailed welcome packet (so thoughtful!!) written by the owners with lots of helpful hints and what is around. OVERALL: Highly recommend, we would love to stay here again!

                            Owner response: Thank you so much for your stay with us! We really feel proud and honored that you enjoyed our condo and location on Kauai. Our cleaning lady is the best! The view of the beach and ocean is my husbands favorite for evening wine and "Pupu's"...(snacks). Looking forward to your future return to Kauai....Aloha for now, Linda Herceg

                            Our high expectations were completely surpassed on our first trip to the Coconut Coast. We arrived on Kaui with plans of being married, taking in some adventures & mostly relaxing. The condo was clean, well stocked & comfortable. From the top floor lenai you have a great view of the beach, pool & surrounding landscape. Our first day there we toured the northeast coast seeking the perfect spot to exchange our vows & to our surprise, we couldn't find a more beautifull, private & romantic beach than the one right there at Lai Nanni. We had contacted a heartwarming local woman who gave us a perfectly memorable christian cerimony with many great pictures. Even though we found the best dining & shopping to be a short stroll down the beach ( be sure to make reservations), location is a key element to this place so you can go north one day & south another. I would highly reccomend booking a trip with Captain andy on one of his rafts. INCREDIBLE!!!!! This place is perfect for anyone looking for a very relaxing & casual place where you can completely unwind.

Thank you for sharing and taking the time to let us know how we measured up. Wishing you two a very happy life and a future stay on this beautiful island we love. Mahalo, Linda Herceg

                            My husband and I have traveled to Hawaii every year we have been together (19) save one. Kauai is our favorite island, and the one we have traveled to the most. We have stayed at the well-known resorts and rented homes with friends. As we were traveling alone this trip, we chose to stay at Lae Nani, and we are so glad we did! The condo had everything we desired (and more!) on our vacation. We had contemplated staying a night in Poipu, but after spending the day in Poipu, we chose to return to Lae Nani. We wanted to get back to the comfort of "home"! The views from the lanai are fantastic and the trail along the beach for a morning stroll is easily accessible. Linda provides a binder which includes menus of local restaurants and information regarding local shopping and activities which is a great resource for those unfamiliar with the area. The condo was not only well-appointed, it was immaculate. Call or email Linda and reserve your stay today; you'll be glad you did!!

                            Recommended for: Families with young children, tourists without a car, romantic getaway, age 55+.

                            Owner response: Thank you much for choosing our condo at Lae Nani! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and hope you return soon. We just installed new carpet and have updated our condo, for even more comfort for our guests. Mahalo Nui Loa....Linda

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1999

                          Why the Owner Chose Kapaa:
                          Lae Nani Resort is a long time favorite place on Kauai and has an ancient Hawaiian ceremonial site that is visited by many travelers worldwide. It is also a very popular wedding back drop too. Living here is a special treat.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Staying on the east side of Kauai is best because you can access the north shore one day and then the south shore or west side another without getting too tired driving. Of course, no need to go anywhere if you want a great beach and relaxation with many restaurants and shopping you can walk to. Amazing sunrises and a quiet retreat.........!
