About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 2, possibly 3

Paradise awaits!!! We guarantee you'll be in awe when you walk in the front door of our condo and see the waves rolling in, just steps away from your living room window. There are very few locations at Lae Nani that you can enjoy unobstructed privacy from your ground floor lanai (no railings to peek through.) We are the only BUILDING #5 that doesn't have a noisy parking lot behind it, or the fenced pool to look over. We have highly upgraded this condo to be comfortable for your pleasure. It has a top of the line, new king size bed, and two twin beds in a Bali day-bed, set up in our living area. We have remodeled the bathrooms and kitchen with granite counters and convenient upgrades. The kitchen has fabulous ocean views from the kitchen sink *full-wall mirrors reflecting the ocean view from every angle. We provide high speed internet/wireless from ocean view desk, along with an iPod dock, an incredibly comfortable sectional sofa, facing the glorious ocean view for lounging or reading. Unlike a lot of other units, we are happy to share our fully-stocked beach closet that is complete with boogie boards, beach toys, snorkeling gear, golf clubs, extra beach chairs, etc. Our choice nightly is to to use the gas grills on property and dine on the best ocean view lanai in Kapaa. Our location, being on the ground floor, with no obstructing railings, buildings, driveways or sidewalks, provides the quiet privacy you need in a Kauai vacation. People that go once, always return. We have 30 years of guest books revealing the joy people have had in our incredibly magical little condo. If you're ready to find paradise, Lae Nani 513 is waiting for you!

The perfect setting on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

I was actually considering giving a bad review so this unit wouldn't be booked!!!!! Sharon is wonderful to deal with, and everything was even better than it looked on VRBO! Incredible setting, best location in the complex, amazing ocean sounds! The unit is so comfortable, great bed and bedding (which is important to me!). We loved that there were 2 bathrooms as my husband is an early riser, and I am not. He didn't have to come in the bedroom if I was asleep! We booked our 3 weeks for next year while we were here so we wouldn't miss out...most relaxing vacation ever!

Beautiful in every way

  • 5 of 5

picture perfect ocean view. The view of the ocean could not be better. The condo is well furnished and very comfortable. The bed especially is just the right softness along with some of the softest sheets we have experienced. Very thoughtful to be greeted with box of macadamia nuts and a bottle of wine. We would recommend it to anyone and if we come back to Kauai, we will check here first.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten amazing nights at Sharon's property. Woke up every morning to the beautiful sound of the waves. The unit was so organized we needed nothing. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation! Laura, Robin and Amanda, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Absolutely Perfect in every way!! We definitely recommend this condo and hope to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described and better! Excellent location. The main floor lanai is steps to the beach. The condo is well appointed with everything you need from beach supplies to picnic items. The bed was comfortable. You fall asleep listening to the ocean. The location of this property can’t be beat! Sharon is a wonderful host! She responds to questions so quickly! We hope to stay at Lae Nani again! Mahalo :)

What’s not to love?

  • 5 of 5

Sitting steps from the ocean, with the waves rolling in, birds singing, tradewinds blowing, warm ocean, convenience stores and restaurants within walking distance, it’s always easy to return. Some of our best meals were prepared on Lae Nani barbecues Oceanside. We came home totally rejuvenated. Love Kauai. Love Lae Nani 513, our home away from home. Until we return, much aloha. Recommendations within walking distance: ABC Store, Monico,s Mexican (takeout also), HukiLau Lanai, Street Burger, Kintaros, Bobby V’s Italian, The Fish Market, Lava Lava

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the finest units in this complex. The view is unobstructed, with the ability to walk out to the ocean that is so close. Well-equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture - particularly the bed. Nice patio furniture. Plenty of beach supplies. Even sun hats, umbrella, flashlight, written suggestions. Nice touches all around. Clearly, the owners have given this a lot of thought. The mirrors in the living room expand the view. 2 bathrooms is a wonderful benefit. Master bath has a terrific shower that spoiled us quickly. Quiet. Gated. Clean pool. You simply cannot go wrong.
