About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Aloha! Our second home — a ground-floor, oceanfront, two-bedroom, two-bath condo — overlooks beautiful Wailua Bay on the Garden Isle of Kauai. From the lanai you look across the broad green lawn with its palm trees and tropical plantings to a natural sandy swimming beach.

A lava-rock-surrounded ocean pool is wave-free and perfect for children, tucked into this bay ideal for swimming, snorkeling, surfing and wind-surfing.

Lae Nani is one of Kauai’s finest Hawaiian resorts (not imitation Miami Beach). It boasts lush landscaped grounds (including an ancient Heiau, a Hawaiian Temple site), ocean and mountain views, glorious sunrises, a secluded beach, and a large resort pool.

Nearby activities include golf, surfing, kite surfing, kayaking/canoeing, shopping, dining and access to many miles of biking and walking paths.

The resort is ideally located one-block from the Coconut Market shopping center and near lovely Kapaa town on Kauai’s East Coast. It’s a short drive from the airport and midway between Kauai’s North Shore (Princeville, Hanalei and the end of the road and the hiking entry to the Napali Coast), and the South Shore towns of Koloa and Poipu, beyond which lies access to Waimea Canyon, the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.

It’s only moments from the best affordable golf on the island, the ocean side Wailua Public Golf Course. We love these island treasures and the spectacular Kauai natural scenery you’ve seen in more than 80 films, from South Pacific to Jurassic Park and Avatar. So will you.

Come visit Kauai once, as we did, and you’ll return again and again, as we have. Make our second home your vacation home. And please feel free to post your comments. Mahalo!

We loved our stay at this wonderful condo. It had everything we needed. Beach towels, kitchen essentials, etc. Most importantly, we had easy access to the water as the condo is on the ground floor. It was our first time in Kauai and staying on the east side gave us a middle ground to cover both the north side and the west side without spending the whole day in the car. There are two bakeries within walking distance that make the most delicious croissants. A must! Renting bikes was inexpensive and easy. Just up the road there is a bike path with incredible views. Hikes, helicopters, surfing lessons, a zodiac tour all rounded out our week.

The convenience of the laundry on site was appreciated. Doing laundry did not get in the way of our activities! Procedures for arrival and departure were clear and easy to follow. If/when we return to Kauai, we will definitely come back! Thank you Richard for sharing your little slice of paradise with us! Mahalo!

Great location and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this family oriented resort complex located on the outskirts of Kapa'a with easy access to all parts of Kauai. The property was clean, well maintained and met or exceeded our expectations. The owner, Richard was very communicative and accommodating. We enjoyed the resort beach, pool and tennis court, sometimes we were the only ones in the pool and often the only ones on the tennis court. Easy walking distance to bakeries, restaurants and groceries. Did lots of day trips from here and also enjoyed staying at the condo and utilizing the facilities. We would certainly recommend this location and unit to friends and relatives for a great family vacation and hope to return ourselves someday. Thank you Richard.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We own a VRBO in San Diego, but had never stayed at one. This was a perfect first VRBO stay! We were looking for a relaxed, not frenzied resort environment--we were looking for a home. The condo has a pool, tennis court, and small beach. The location was great—30 minutes to the airport and only a mile to Safeway, Subway, Starbuck’s and nice restaurants if you don’t want to drive. A coin laundry steps from the front door with a laundry sink to rinse out salt water, sand, or that famous red dirt was nice to have. Our favorite aspect of the facility was the landscaping. Stone walkways lace the property. There is a koi pond, and if you ask, the grounds keeper will let you feed them. There are small and large planting areas of bromeliads with artful color schemes and many palms. Every night the Tiki lights were lit from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Most mornings we walked to the beach (steps from the condo) for the sunrise. Kauai is a fairly small island, so travel to the North, South, or West was easy. There were a variety of travel books at the condo, and we found “The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook” to be our favorite. It was a nice and relaxing vacation and this condo was a great find for us.

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and had a perfect vacation here! The view from the lanai is spectacular and the beach is just steps away. Our kids used the boogie boards everyday and surfed the shore break. The pool was lovely and the gardens are beautiful. Really a perfect place for us!

Excellent 2 br unit in excellent resort.

  • 4 of 5

Everything works in this unit and there were extras (eg. boogie boards) right in the unit. The location is the best on Kauai. We rented bikes for the week and often cycled up the paved ocean trail (6 miles long) and then up into cattle country. Can't do this elsewhere on the island. There is snorkeling right at the beach in front of the unit. Not the best on the island but some fish and we swam with a large sea turtle on our first time out. Wifi worked well, TV has enough channels. Good swimming pool and 3 good community BBQ's. Well maintained grounds. Actually maybe too well maintained as there was some day time noise from leaf blowers, lawn mowers, etc. Wish the help still used rakes and brooms but I guess those days are long gone. Kitchen could be updated if you are fussy about that, it didn't bother us.

A Loyal customer

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely superb unit. As nice as any that we found in the area around Kapaa. The tenants treated us very nicely, it was very quiet. The wonderful beach was within 200 feet of our door. The landscaping is spectacular. The price was reasonable, the accomodations were the best. We will be coming back again.
