Ray & Sandy Gale purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Ray & Sandy Gale chose Wailua
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.

Great views and location
Loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves and some night time rains. Waking up to the view from the lanai was a great way to start each day. We liked the location as far as being somewhat in the middle to go north or south. The grounds were beautifully maintained. Although the condo may be a bit out dated, decor was not our priority while visiting Kauai and it had everything we needed. I was a little worried it didn't have air conditioning, but wasn't needed as the trade winds kept it comfortable with window open and ceiling fans on.
Beautiful condo in a perfect location!
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!
Mahalo, Jennifer. We are so happy that you had a wonderful vacation enjoying the beauty and comfort of this special spot. May you find your way back again one day. Aloha.
Ideal location with a beautiful view.
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.
How very nice of you to take the time to compose this. I am pleased that you enjoyed your time in paradise and we look forward to your returning in the future!
Ray and Sandy
Great time at Lae Nani
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!
Mahalo Gena! We are so happy you enjoyed your time on Kauai and your stay in our little piece of paradise there. I can see you too have caught the "Aloha" spirit which always brings us back to that beautiful place. We look forward to your return!
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!!!
Mahalo for your kinds words! We are happy your stay was a joy.
Our Paradise Home away from Home.
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.
Mahalo for your kind review. We love when guests enjoy our condo, the property and Kauai as much as we do. Ray and I try to keep our little slice of paradise as pleasant and accommodating as possible. We do hope you return soon. Live Aloha!
Kauai movie tours, sea turtles to view, the endangered monk seal also.
