Wailua Bay View condo description

Imagine this…a happy, blessed, hard-working couple who love the ocean, have a passion for Hawaii and a dream...a home by the sea. They visit all the major islands, looking for the perfect combination of oceanfront location, sound of breaking surf, and expansive unobstructed ocean views.

This story has a happy ending…we found our perfect condo at Wailua Bay View on quiet, lush Kauai! Located on the east side, near Kapaa, along the Royal Coconut Coast, it's perfect for visiting Poipu in the south, and Hanalei in the north. The complex has a quiet, private feel and lovely gardens, and sits perched right above beautiful Wailua Bay. Our condo (#214) has 1 bedroom and a beautifully renovated bathroom; add a full kitchen, dining/living room and lanai, and you get 750 sq. feet of paradise! Spectacular sunrises, relaxing oceanfront sounds and vistas, and restful sleeps are waiting for you. You'll sense the pride of ownership, feel the Aloha spirit, and hear the crashing waves the moment you cross the threshold!

We visit two or three times a year to replace linens, make refurbishments and inspect that everything is in perfect working order. We spare no expense to make it comfortable, clean, efficient, and cozy. When we can’t be there, we offer it to special people like you! As owners, we communicate directly with you, to answer questions, and assist you in planning a fabulous getaway.

Read on for more details, or just skip down to the most important part, the reviews. We've stayed in many places using VRBO ourselves, and we'd base our rental decisions on current, positive reviews from actual guests in their own words. That’s exactly what you’ll find in our reviews, all submitted directly by guests to our listing. We've added a few from our guest book too, which is full of glowing comments. Our first review on this listing is quite special, it's from a certain blue-eyed VRBO bear! (Check out www.vrbo.com/stayedhere) Look for other reviews on other travel sites - there are several for our unit (Wailua Bay View #214).

There's plenty of free parking, a full size in-suite washer/dryer, full size appliances in the well-equipped kitchen, a bedroom A/C, 2 ceiling fans, free wi-fi, and a brand new spa-like total bathroom remodel. The only thing missing is…YOU! But plan ahead, our calendar stays pretty full.

In our unit you’ll find coolers, beach chairs, beach umbrella, swim towels, and sometimes water shoes and snorkel gear. There are 2 Vizio flat screen TV's, a DVD player, and a CD player/IPod dock. We provide a Guest Binder with recommendations for restaurants, tours, and boat trips we've personally experienced. You'll find a list of the local Farmer’s Markets, including one at the nearby Coconut Marketplace, a short 5 minute walk north.

The spectacular Kauai Bike Path runs right in front of this complex. Rent bikes nearby, and see why Kapaa was recently named one of the 15 prettiest towns in the nation by Forbes magazine.

Mahalo and Aloha! We hope you enjoy your Hawaiian holiday!

Only 5 minutes away from Lydgate Park, with protected snorkeling ponds and a fantastic playground. Wailua Bay View is all about the 'bay view'! And although you can swim in Wailua Bay, it is known for swells and riptides. Not for novices! That's why the local surfers and bodyboarders love it, and they are fun to watch!...moreless

                  Relaxing and enjoying this perfectly located condo at the end of each day 12/27/2013

                  VRBO Bear stayed here:


                  New Year’s in Kauai is just what the Bear family ordered for our winter getaway! This bear couple was spoiled on their 20th Anniversary with this perfectly located Condo in Wailua, on the Coconut Coast. It was the perfect location for us to do everything we wanted in Kauai.

                  The condo is situated at the end of the complex – away from street noise – and close to the fabulous beach and ocean view. Right when we arrived, we headed straight to the balcony to take in the sounds and view that is Kauai. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed for the beach as well as a clean and organized kitchen. And, they had air conditioning in the bedroom if it was too hot. But we didn’t need it. There were plenty of windows to open to catch the ocean breezes!

                  The location of our condo was perfect. We had easy access to multiple grocery stores and restaurants. But, we were far enough from town that we didn’t feel like we couldn’t get away from everything. The owners were also very attentive and surprised us with some snacks, coffee and a bottle of wine waiting for our arrival!

                  It seems to me that the owners really care about their home! They recently remodeled their bathroom into a mini oasis! The large shower head and openness of the space was very relaxing. They provided us plenty of towels and supplies for our visit.

                  One of our favorite evenings was walking over to Waialua Bay (about a 2 minute walk) with our beach chairs in hand, a tasty beverage, sitting close to the water and watching the stars. It was dark and peaceful in the evening. We brought a flashlight with us to find our way. After sitting and chatting for a while, we decided to look at what was around us with our flash lights. To our surprise, there were about 10 tiny crabs frozen by our light – staring at us. Then they quickly zipped back into the water or into their homes in the sand. It was a magical evening for all of us.

                  I really enjoy going on bike rides and it is very easy to go biking in Kauai. There was a bike path (called the Ke Ala Hele Makalae 7 mile trail) that starts directly across from our condo – which becomes a dedicated path in Kapa’a after 2 miles. Papa Bear LOVES to roller skate, so Mama Bear got a Bike (with room for me!) and we took that path at least 3 times on our visit. It goes all the way to Kuna Bay where we got to play in the waves and watch the surfers. I’m glad we brought towels and sunscreen!

                  During our visit, we got to head to the North Shore and visit the remote area of Wainiha and Tunnels Beach to go snorkeling. The waves were too high at the Tunnels Beach (in the Winter the water is more rough in the North), so we decided to check-out the Kalalau Trail – which is an 11 mile trail that goes all the way over to the Na Pali Coast. Our family loves to snorkel – so we were looking forward to the location. But, the trail was very beautiful and in the lush jungle. The trail was a little much for my little legs to handle, so we only made it a ½ mile in – but I’m glad I went that far and got to enjoy the views!

                  A few days later we headed to the South end of the Island to snorkel at Poipu Beach. There were a lot more people down there, but the snorkeling was great! We also snorkeled near our condo at Lydgate Park. It was a sheltered swimming area that had a few fish to see. There were lots of families there and I felt much safer and protected from the higher waves!

                  At the end of every day, it was nice to get back to our comfortable condo. We could cook what we wanted and barbeque by the pool. We made Hawaiian Ribs one night – they took 3 hours to cook – so I got to swim in the beautiful pool and warm my fur in the sun! Another night we picked up some giant Kauai farm raised shrimp on our way back from Waimea in Hanapepe. They were so good! And a bargain too! We cooked those by the pool as well.

                  It is always sad when it is time to go home. But, we had a relaxing and enjoyable time at this condo in Wailua. The location, amenities and scenery made this one of the most memorable vacations we have had in a long time. I will definitely tell my friends about this magical trip. Thank you for accepting the Bear into your home in Kauai.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: My husband and I grew up in Northern California, and we love the ocean! Fortunately his 20 year naval career allowed us to often live near water; on both coasts and 2 countries in Europe. We've been blessed with the opportunity to travel extensively, and stay in many different types of accommodations, the good and the not so good! We know what works! The island of Kauai is known for incomparable beauty, rich lush landscapes, and pristine reefs. It offers diverse adventure, in an uncrowded atmosphere. It hearkens back to the Hawaii of old, before tourism was widespread. We’re happy to share our condo, and spread the Aloha!

                  Why the Owner Chose Wailua Bay View:
                  Wailua Bay View Unit 214 offers the oceanfront location we love, with privacy and convenience. It allows you to enjoy real Hawaii, with all the comforts of home!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Within seconds of walking into this condo, as you approach the sliding doors to the lanai, you will experience the breezes, the roar of the surf, and the wide open ocean in front of you! You'll watch surfers, paddle boarders, and sometimes outrigger canoe races! Watch for the occasional turtle bobbing in the waves, and whales in the winter. At night, you'll be lulled to dreamland by the sound of the crashing waves. The moon rising and reflecting off the water will be stunning! (Try to come during a full moon!) You will feel right at home, and won't want to leave!
