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!

Stunning view of the ocean literally steps away from the lanai
The only downside to this property is that guests do NOT adhere to the non-smoking property policy. This visit there were lots of smokers and it is not policed at all. We awoke in the night to a smoker standing right outside our bedroom window! Annoying.
Aside from that, the place is great. This condo sits on a grassy rise just above the beach. There are no traffic noises that can be heard from the nearby highway. Just the sounds of the sea, the birds, and the wind blowing through the palm trees. Paradise.
This unit feels like our beach house. The king sized bed is comfortable. There is plenty of furniture in the living room and the full wall mirrors in the dining and living rooms expand your view and create the illusion of a much larger space.
The property is VERY well maintained. There does not appear to be any deferred maintenance on any of the buildings. The downside of that is that there is always routine maintenance occurring. Fortunately for us, that maintenance was on other buildings during this visit. It can be loud with sawing, hammering, and banging. I’m not sure how you could find out ahead of time whether or not the building you’d be staying in would be affected by this.
This was the very first time we have ever stayed on the ground floor and we were hesitant about doing so. Since this unit sits up on a rise, it doesn’t feel like a ground level unit. It is also very bright inside.
Overall this was a 5-star vacation. We would definitely come back to this unit again.
I have stayed in this wonderful unit several times and will do so again. Not only is the location in Lae Nani (building 5) the best, but the unit itself is very comfortable and we'll equipped. I especially appreciate the abundant towels, etc. and the extra toilet paper provided--you don't have to buy lots of tp you will just leave behind! And the owner is very considerate and great to work with--thank you!
Delighted with the condo, location and hospitality of Sharon. The condo could not have been cleaner or better equipt for cooking, relaxing and adventuring. Bed was super comfy. Bird sounds and ocean waves woke us up each morning. Recommend 100% and hope to be back!
We spent two weeks at this location. Unfortunately, we had a lot of rain. Fortunately, the condo was perfect. It was comfortable and relaxing. We had an awesome view of the ocean and beach. On the few sunny days, we could relax on the lanai only steps from the ocean, or go to the pool which always had lounge chairs available. Grocery stores were close by so we could stock up for the rainy weather. Thanks for the lovely time.
The perfect setting on Kauai
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!
So pleased you’ll return next year and also pleased to know you enjoyed our attention to detail. Thank you for that!!! Aloha😊�
Beautiful in every way
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.
