About Sandy & Ray 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.

Sandy & Ray Gale purchased this condo in 1999

Why Sandy & Ray Gale chose Coconut Coast

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

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.

Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the second 1 1/2to this piece of paradise on Kauai . The unit is located in a central location on the Coconut Coast. The view from the lanai can not be beaten, watching the waves on your almost private beach. The grounds are extremely well maintained, the beach has an area safe for swimming and a sheltered bay for children separated from the ocean by a wall of lava rocks.

The unit itself is well maintained and has everything that you could want. 1 1/2 baths, a separate bedroom, and a pull out couch would sleep four easily. The owners were great to work with and offered suggestions on things to do in the area. Clean, spacious, and the unbelievable view enabled my wife and I to enjoy a little piece of Kauai paradise. Thanks Sandy and Gale for sharing your place! We definitely want to come back...soon.

Can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this Lae Nani unit and we continue to be convinced that it is the best choice on Kauai! Lae Nani itself is in a perfect location mid-point on the Island on a beautiful swimable bay. The grounds are immaculate with artistically designed gardens and a beautiful lawn that is an oasis to return to after exploring - or to stay and enjoy all day! This particular unit has a wonderful view of the ocean out front, and tropical gardens/trees out the back set quietly away from the parking lot. Already missing the sounds of the crashing surf and the birds - and of course the gentle trade winds. The hosts provide many comforts and our transactions are pleasant, simple and professional. We can't wait to return in December - why go anywhere else!!?
