Our Lae Nani unit opens to a captivating view of the beach, ocean, the landscaping and the Wailua Bay. It is a second floor unit. We recently completed major remodeling with a new kitchen, new bathrooms, and new furniture including a flat screen television and king size bed. We chose this property over other available ones on the basis of the view, its location, and the grounds. It is on the second floor of Lae Nani's only two story building. It is located midway between Hanalei and Poipu and approximately 10 minutes North of the airport and several miles South of Kapa'a town. The beach at the property provides good,safe swimming and snorkeling and there is a lava encircled beach area that is ideal for young swimmers. Numerous other beaches with more wave action are nearby providing for excellent surfing and boogie boarding.
We are walking distance to many excellent restaurants not to mention a very good bakery/coffee shop. We are very close to the Coconut Market Place that also has many very good casual restaurants as well as a Lapperts Ice Cream shop, Yogurt, Pizza and a Whalers General Store that is well stocked with sundries, beach accessories, beer etc.
In other words, other than for groceries, one would never have to get in their car.

Our unit is an end unit on the second floor of a two story building (one of only 4) which means the view is outstanding and no noise from people above. While we are located near the main highway, the location of our unit shields us from any road noise. The property is beautifuly landscaped with the manager being a tropical landscaping expert. We are located immediately North of the Wailua River,(excellent kayaking and paddle boarding.) and several minutes South of the quaint town of Kapa'a which has a rich history as a sugar plantation industry town. While it's architectural charm has not changed, it now has excellent restaurants, art and Jewelry galleries, clothing stores, and bike and kayak rentals. The Coconut Market Place is is a two minute walk from Lae Nani. It has a number of casual but good eating establishments, a well stocked convenience store and stores that sell Hawaiian/ beach clothing. We are a two minute drive or a 10 minute walk to small shopping centers with major food markets and pharmacies.

About the owner: We are retired educators and have raised 4 children. When the kids were younger, we came to Hawaii many times. Having visited and enjoyed the other Islands, our favorite has been Kauai for the spectacular scenery, the friendly people, the variety of activities and that it hasn't been ruined by overdevelopment. Friends recently lured us back to Kaui resulting in a renewed love for the Island and after discovering Lae Nani, we decided that this was the place for us.
Why the Owner Chose Lae Nani: We feel that Lae Nani has qualities that we did not find in other properties. Besides being ideally located, Lae Nani had the most appealing overall quality environment. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. The manager has his own mini nursery resulting in Hawaiin colors adorning the landscaping at all times. While we have our own swimming bearch, we are close to other excellent beaches, a large quality swimming pool and is close to the charming town of Kapaa. Located in east Kauai, the drive to either Poipu or Hanalei is not excessive. There is a tennis court on site and parking is secure.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We are located near the Wailua River with Kayaking, canoeing, and Hiking. Golfing and shopping are nearby. We are short walk to a variety of excellent eating establishments including Mexican, Japanese, Korean, Italian Cafe, and casual seafood restaurants.
