About Ray & Sandy Gale

Married 48 years. Our working careers are over and we are now retired. We have a son and a daughter who have wonderful partners, and now as a result we have four grandchildren. We live close and support each other.

Ray & Sandy Gale purchased this condo in 1999

Why Ray & Sandy Gale chose Kapaa

We wanted to honeymoon in Hawaii but could not afford to travel there until our 12th anniversary. Then, we loved it so much we returned 15 times, exploring various places on various islands. We both loved Kauai so much for it's beauty and variety of experience. Finally, in 1999, we bought our beautiful condo at Lae Nani, which we share with you, our family, and friends.

What makes this condo unique

Besides the snorkeling, eating out, shopping which is in walking distance, nearby Luau, great hiking, biking, fishing, surfing, and kayaking, there is always BBQing by the pool and eating on the lanai by candle light as the sun sets.

Stay here and we will give one free art lesson to one guest from renown Kauai artist, Marionette. Check her out here

Great time at Lae Nani

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this very well equipped condo. It was centrally located to each side of the island and easy to get to the airport. While we were there it was unusually warm and humid we were told, and no wind , but there was a box fan and the ceiling fans which made this tolerable. This was for several days out of 7. When the breezes started again it was so pleasant. We were coming from an area where it was still very cold and this may have been a factor In our getting used to the climate. We stayed midweek to midweek around Easter. It was quiet and relaxing experience. Everyone staying seemed respectful of each other. The grounds, pool, landscaping very well maintained. The bed was comfortable for us. There is owner created beautiful artwork on the walls. Bernadette the local agent for the owners was very helpful and friendly. We found the BBQ by the parking lot by building 5 to be convenient. We hope to be blessed to return one day to this beautiful island, and would definitely stay here again. The owners responded very quickly when we indicated interest in this unit, and kept their calendar up to date on the Vrbo site which made it easy to plan. Mahalo to Ray and Sandy for the aloha spirit and sharing this home away from home in paradise!

Beautiful condo in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely condo for 4 nights, and were very happy with it. We spent a lot of time exploring the island and not as much time in the condo, but it suited us perfectly. It is very comfortable and tidy, and has everything you need. I was surprised to see a few things that many rental places do not supply. The bed was comfy and it was so nice to have the windows open and to be able to listen to the ocean waves all night long.

The view from the condo is amazing, and we saw a beautiful sunrise each morning from the lanai. One morning we ate breakfast on the lanai and saw a whale! The view of the sunset is incredible from the beach! The beach was lovely, and our daughter loved playing in the sand and the little area that is protected by rocks. There were a lot of interesting ocean creatures to look at in there!

The location is great, and we really liked being "central" to the whole island. There are some really good restaurants and bakeries within walking distance, and a short drive to Kapa'a that has a lot of cool stores and restaurants as well.

We have no complaints, and would definitely recommend staying here!

Ideal location with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and the grounds were well kept. The condo had everything we needed to stay in, or for a day at the beach. The island artwork and furnishings made us feel right at home. We loved the view of the ocean and hope to come back again. Mahalo.

Wonderful visit this month at this property. View is just as described - Magnificent, true ocean view property. We already miss having the waves lull us to sleep and serving as the perfect wake up call. Very clean and comfortable. Bed great, bathroom a bit dated but perfect for a beach property. Nicely stocked with supplies and beach toys. Walking distance to Lava, Lava, Hukilau, 2 bakeries, misc other restaurants, and a great coffee house, Imua. We will be back!!!

Our Paradise Home away from Home.

  • 5 of 5

Upon our first visit to the condo, we sensed an immediate peacefulness enhanced by the view from the private lanai overlooking the blue waters of Kauai. The condo has been tastefully decorated with

many examples of their personal art and handiwork.

You will find a spacious master bedroom with a large adjoining bathroom. The kitchen has all of the necessary cooking utensils , cutlery and pans if you prefer to cook in. We had 4 home-cooked meals. There were several large Weber BBQs available in various locations including the pool area. The living and dining rooms form an open floor plan. The owners provided various Television options including Roku.

We were close to various shopping venues for food, entertainment and relaxation. The Wailua golf course is minutes away as well as the beautiful town of Kappa. Thid unit is a great place to plan trips to Princeville, Waimea and the south shore. A MUST dining experience is the Bistro in the quaint town of Kilauea. We chose a helicopter adventure to learn and see Kauai where most roads do not go. If you are history motivated, the Kauai museum will not disappoint. Lastly, we found it hard to leave our paradise home away from home!! We highly recommend this 5 star property. Can't wait to return.

A warm thank you to Sandy and Ray for the opportunity to stay in their wonderful unit. Sandy and Ray are great to work with, and prompt with replies. We can easily recommend them, without reservation !

The unit is a pleasure to be in and the "outstanding view at Lae Nani Bldg 5" is the truth.

This was our 12th stay at Lae Nani, and we can not wait to get back next year. The grounds at Lae Nani just seem to look better every year.

Just a wonderful stay.

Thanks to Sandy and Ray for the opportunity.
