Lae Nani condo description

We welcome you to our beach front home on the Island of Kauai!

Lae Nani is a premier resort located on the east side of Kauai. This location means that you have easy access to both the North Shore (Napali Coast) and South Shore (Poipu, Waimea Canyon and beyond). Close to the resort, there are several grocery stores and shops to provide for your needs and there are several fantastic restaurants within walking distance.

Our top (3rd) floor, two-bedroom renovated condo has all you need to enjoy your time here. When Ric's father purchased the condo, before it was constructed, he was advised by the builder that our unit was the best one of the entire complex due to its proximity to the beach, amazing views, distance from the road and top floor location. Because it is on the top floor, there is no noise from neighbors above. The building is situated in such as way that you will wake to the beautiful morning sun as it lights the Lae Nani gardens and ocean out front. In the afternoon, when the sun heats up, the angle of the building allows for enjoyment of the trade wind breezes as they flow through the screen doors and are stirred by the ceiling fans inside the unit.

Our condo does have amazing views of the beautiful Lae Nani gardens, beaches and surf from two separate lanais (balconies). For a romantic getaway, the view from the master bedroom lanai can't be beat and the lanai in front of the living room has a table large enough to eat dinner by plus two relaxing chaise lounges.

Because we are beach front (not just ocean view) you have an unobstructed 180 degree view of the ocean and the sand is only about 75 feet from the condo. There is a small keiki (children's) pool out front that is protected and perfect for small children who are ready to explore what the ocean has to offer. For adults and older kids we have good snorkeling. There is also a pool for Lae Nani guests that you can relax at and enjoy the sight and sound of the ocean out front. Most days you will look out to see surfers catching a great wave and endangered monk seals often rest on the beach in front.

We listen to the feedback of our guests and are continually working to improve our condo. We travel ourselves and like to provide comforts that we enjoy at other places we stay. Our condo is family-friendly, with a portable crib, stroller, booster seat, games and books for children to enjoy. Free secured wireless internet, Netflix, Amazon Prime, blue ray player, iPod docking station and a phone for you to use not only for local calls but also long distance to the US and Canada. Our kitchen is stocked with a few extras you may not find in other condos, like coffee, spices and staples such as oil and vinegar. We provide good knives and high quality utensils. Our beds and linens are comfortable and we stock your bathroom with locally-made beautiful soap. We have wood or tile flooring throughout and beautiful artwork which includes several local artists – one of them only 8 years old.

As you relax listening to the sound of the surf, you can plan your day, knowing you are never far from adventure.

Keywords: Our unit is a 3rd floor walk-up with two lanai's (decks); one off the living room and one off the master bedroom. The ocean is less than 75 feet from the building.

              Owner info

              Why the Owner Chose Lae Nani:
              This unit has been in the family since the original construction. My father inspected the property prior to construction and was advised by the developer to purchase our unit as it would have (he felt) the best view and location in the complex.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              The East side of Kauai (also known as the Coconut Coast) is unsurpassed in location and access to the rest of the island. The weather here is in between the wet zone (North Shore) and the dry zone (South Shore). We have a number of great restaurants within walking distance.
