About Claudia Prenter
Chris and Claudia Prenter. We live in Hermosa Beach, CA with our two children.
Claudia Prenter purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Claudia Prenter chose Wailua
We fell in love with this location. It is the best condo location on the East side of the island. 10 min drive from the Lihue Airport, and 5 minutes from grocery stores. Great restaurants and a shopping mall within walking distance. Located halfway between the South and North shores, it is the ideal place to begin day trips to all the great sights on the island. The complex features a huge open space so children can play on wonderfully manicured lawns, a beautiful beach, a protected baby beach and a newly refinished pool. Also, the grounds are sheltered from the strong trade winds. For surfers, there is a nice reef break located in front of the unit that breaks consistently year round from the trade wind swells, yet is partially sheltered from the wind. Our family of four has been enjoying vacations here since 2005 and we have lots of wonderful memories of adventures with our children and extended family. Can't wait to go back!
What makes this Condo unique
This top floor unit stays cool because it is exposed to the ocean breeze and has higher ceilings than the lower floors. The ocean view is STUNNING! One of my favorite things to do is to enjoy a glass of wine at the Lanai, where you can listen to the relaxing sounds of the ocean and the palm fronds swaying in the breeze, the numerous singing birds, and watch the occasional monk seal take a nap on the beach. Very relaxing!

Great location, attractive property.
This is our favorite area to stay in Kauai - nice and central, close to the airport, easy to get around. The property is well maintained and has a great view of the beach, which is quiet and fairly private! The on-property pool is also relatively uncrowded - tho a bit chilly when we visited. There are useful amenities which are walkable, including some nice restaurants (Hukilau Lanai) & a new Island Country Markets store (sorta a deluxe version of ABC Stores with food counters, etc.) So for us, the perfect location for a stay! And the host was very helpful overall.
Mahalo Simon for taking the time to review!
I appreciate the feedback on the pool, I will ask management what's happening with the water temperature, as it's supposed to be heated year round.
Hukilau Lanai is one of my favorite places to dine and it's so close to the condo.
When I visited Kauai 2 weeks ago, I walked to the new Island Country Market store and was very impressed with their wine selection and fresh food counter, it's so conveniently located, they pretty much carry everything under the sun and the store is huge and brand new!
It was my pleasure to host you, I hope you can come visit Kauai again very soon.
Property was beautiful. Well-maintained
Had a great stay. Unit was immaculate. Owner very accommodating. Had trouble w/TV and she sorted it out right away. Arrived a little early for check-in and cleaner was still there. We went to get groceries and requested twin beds be converted to a king. No problem (even though she had JUST finished taking it apart!) Only negative was lots of traffic on main road which made getting in and out of complex a little tricky. Kapaa needs to add a stoplight somewhere to help with traffic flow. Otherwise very good location, easy access to both ends of the island. Loved it!
Everything as promised. Maybe even better!
The view from the good sized lanai was fantastic. (the same as the pictures in the ad but better in person)
The condo is very spacious and nicely furnished with a hawaiian flavour.
Although we didn't use the pool (the ocean is right there!) it looked great and was a good size.
The grounds were immaculately maintained by the industrious and friendly resort staff.
We enjoyed using the barbecues which are located beside the pool.
Parking is plentiful.
There are really nice restaurants and shopping within easy walking distance.
The Lava Lava club right next door has $5 really good Maitai's and cheap (also really good appy's).
Thank you so much for taking the time to review my condo. I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much... this really makes my day!
You have highlighted the features that I love the most about my place, and you really do get familiarized with the area and all its conveniences when you have a nice long 2 week vacation such as yours!
I hope you return soon, it was a pleasure hosting you :)
We enjoyed that we had an upper level, corner unit as it made for quiet and privacy. Fairly updated inside. Plastic shower liner inside of master bath needs replacing. Close to markets etc, beautiful views, pool is great too. Would recommend for sure.
Thank you for taking the time to review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the top floor and corner location of the condo, as well as the ocean views and pool.
I wish I would have known about the shower curtain before you checked out so I could have had housekeeping take care of it for you while you were there. My housekeeper has already looked into it and either cleaned or replaced the shower liner.
Thanks again for choosing my condo.
Great week in Kauai
We had a wonderful week in Kauai. The condo was perfect for us. Kitchen was well stocked, we fixed elaborate breakfasts every day to get us charged. Enjoyed the pool and views. Surf and winds were very strong so we only got in the water once. Lava Lava resturant was next door and so easy to walk to.
The condo was 3rd floor but we liked the view and privacy of the location.
Centrally located so could get to north side and south side easily . Seemed like a good value.
It's so great to hear you enjoyed it. We try to keep the kitchen stocked for those who wish to cook. Lava Lava is a great alternative to cooking, especially because it's so close, right on the beach and fun for the whole family.
The pool is always fun, and they keep it heated year round, also the condo being on the third floor is nice because of the ocean view plus there's no one above you.
I'm happy to hear you went on some day trips as well...sounds like you did all the things we like to do as a family when we visit. It was my pleasure to host you, come back anytime :)
Perfect spot! Roomy and comfortable
My husband, myself and my two boys stayed at this condo for 10 wonderful days in November. The location is perfect. Its 30 minutes to Poipu (at most) and 10 minutes to Lihue, 5 minutes to Kapaa ( which had great shopping and Mexican food!)
The condo was well equipped. It does not have laundry in the unit/ but laundry is available at the bottom of the stairs and open for 8am-10pm. There is change machine in the laundry room and one load costs 2.50 to wash and dry.
The kitchen is very well stocked. I noticed a review that complained that there weren’t coffee thermoses - but by the time we got there, two thermoses were in the bottom drawer.
On the lanai ( balcony for us mainland folks) there is a closet with several boogie boards, water shoes, tennis rackets. These are not owned or maintained by Claudia/ so there are no promises in terms of what is in the closet- since much of the goodies have been left by renters however, this was a fun discovery for us!! Boogie boards galore!
The outdoor seating set looked new/ no mold anywhere.
The master bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever had in a rental. My husband and i looked forwRd to going to sleep- it was so cozy!
Challenges: the door to the back bedroom doesn’t latch well- and with the windows and fans it seems to open and SLAM shut randomly. We relied on the door stopper. But if we forgot- we were all rattled.
Also- the tennis court is right outside the master bedroom window and we were woken EVERY MORNING at 8 am by couples paddle ball. Not quite tennis, not quite whiffle ball. It was loud and woke us up- but to be fair, we then stubbled out to the lanai for coffee and the view and could hardly feel sorry for ourselves.
The kitchen was fully equipped. Past renters have left ample spices, olive oil, vinegar and sugar. There are plenty of coffee filters.
The tv in the master bedroom does not work well- but the bed is so cozy it will lull you to sleep.
The pool is fun And generally not crowded. The beach has a nice area for kiddos.
We will definitely come back to this condo! We had a wonderful time.
Walking distance to the quaint town of Kapaa, shopping and great restaurants. Lighted Tennis court on grounds. Gated heated pool. Beautiful oceanfront walking/biking path along property.
