About The Owner

We live and work in fast-paced Southern California where long commutes and stress are a part of our every day life. At the end of each demanding year we seek a peaceful, beautiful location to regenerate and inspire us for the coming year. We also appreciate the ease of access to activities and site seeing that Lae Nani has being on the East central side of the island.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why The Owner chose Kapaa

While returning to Kauai each year, we realized that the ocean, tropical breezes and slower pace were the best medicine for our busy lives. We found that this beautiful condo offered 24/7, gorgeous views of Wailua Bay, the mountains, and the ocean in a serene, tropical setting. It was a jewel awaiting us in an area that was reminiscent of old time Hawaii.

What makes this condo unique

After our plane trip, we like driving only a few minutes north from the airport to reach our exotic, relaxing destination. It is even nicer to be so convenient to all the activities and sight-seeing options. We love our beautiful, private space where we can choose to meet other people or be alone. Our lanai is a perfect place to sip coffee or entertain guests while being surrounded by the sound of the ocean and the swaying palm trees. Since our condo has a full kitchen, Hd-TV, WiFi, towels, etc, we can easily cocoon and bring less luggage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in Kristine's Lae nani condo, PERFECT! It is beautifully furnished, spacious, spotlessly clean and what a view! The Lae Nani condo resort is perfectly placed for exploring the stunning island of Kauai. The gardens and pool are very well cared for and the staff are very friendly. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodation. Thank you for sharing your second home. Can't wait to return next year!

Even Better Than We Expected

  • 5 of 5

Having spent our time in Poipu and Princeville in the past, we were a bit unsure how well we would like staying on the Coconut Coast. That said, we absolutely loved Lae Nani. The location is convenient to the entire island and the property is ideally suited for a wide variety of guests, from individuals and couples to families. The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained, and the view from our lanai was exactly as pictured on the VRBO site. Unit 123 has been nicely updated, with fresh paint and carpet, and a very functional kitchen (my wife loved the Fiesta Ware dinnerware, etc). Both our host/owner (Kirsten) and her property manager (Cary) were readily available and responsive. We will definitely return to this spot during our next stay on the island.

Owner's Response: Aloha Steve, We are delighted to know that you were pleased with our condo setting, interior and ocean view from the lanai. It is so nice to have nice guests who appreciate our condo and the efforts of the manager and island representative/housekeeper! We look forward to your return to the Coconut Coast and Lae Nani, in particular! Mahalo, Kirsten and Kristine

We have stayed in several VRBO rentals and this unit is one of the best we have visited! The condo is like new and very tastefully decorated. There was nothing that we needed during our stay that wasn't furnished. The unit is within walking distance of several very nice restaurants(I highly recommend the Hukilau Lanai) When viewing the photos remember that a camer lens distorts distance. The unit is actually closer that the pictures depict. Have no concern about no A/C. The ocean breeze along with the ceiling fans make for very pleasant temps. We can't wait until we can return to this lovely unit.

perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 16 days. Everything was excellent. Have no complaints at all.

Enjoyed the condo, pool, ocean front, and location. Can't find a single thing

to complain about. I would come back and do it all over again and not

change anything. Probably the best vacation we ever had.

Thanks for everything. ( 2 retired senior citizens)

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, beautiful view and comfortable condo. We recently stayed here for 10 days and it was much better than staying in a hotel. Every convenience was offered in the condo and it's just minutes from the airport. They were able to accommodate our request for early check-in which was much appreciated. Cary was easy to reach and able to help us with our questions. Highly recommend and you have really made us appreciate the advantages of VRBO!

We hope to see you again very soon. Our repeat guests have been with us many years. Mahalo, Kirsten and Kristine

Great view and location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here at Lae Nani #123. We just got home last week after 9 days there for our anniversary and it was amazing! The location is perfect....easy drive to both the Princeville area and Waimea, and yet a lot to do right in Kapaa as well!

The condo is in great condition. It is well maintained and the furniture is nice. The kitchen includes most of what you need to cook some basic meals - even a wine bottle opener! :)

The air conditioner in the bedroom is a life saver!! The humidity the first couple days took a bit to get used to, so not sure i would've been able to sleep without it. And it cools down the bedroom quickly even when it's been off all day. The living area does get a bit warm, but we found that if we kept the slider open with the blinds closed when were gone all day, it would still let the air flow in, but keep the sun out to keep it cooler. I don't think we closed the slider or the side windows all week! ha ha So being on a second floor was a bonus for that!

The extras for the beach were nice too....chairs, a couple noodles, the small cooler for some waters, snorkeling gear, even some floaties for the pool if you want.

The view was the best part! It was so relaxing out on the balcony just enjoying the sound of the waves and gorgeous view of the beach and ocean - as well as the sound of rain, my favorite. Our ritual was breakfast in the morning and a glass of wine at night with that view! I miss it already : )

As a bonus, right next door is the Lava Lava Beach Club for some good food and drinks. They have a decent happy hour, great bartenders and music every night. It was nice to have a fun place to go after a day of exploring.

We would absolutely recommend this condo to anyone and will hopefully be able to come back some day. Kauai is just beautiful with so much to do - or nothing to do if you want!

On a side note...i would absolutely recommend the kayaking and hike to the waterfall tour that is right there locally, as well as a helicopter tour. And so many hikes to do, you can't go wrong! Enjoy!!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed staying at this place. The location is really good. It's close to the airport and to restaurants and the beach is just downstairs. The place was really nice and clean and had everything we needed. The view from the lanai is pretty awesome, I will absolutely recommend this place to my friends.
