About the property

Beach Front Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to our beach front home on the Island of Kauai!

Lae Nani is a beautiful resort located on the east side of Kauai, just south of Kapaa. Our location gives you easy access to the North Shore (Napali Coast) and South Shore (Poipu, Waimea Canyon) and access to stores and restaurants is within walking distance or a 5 minute drive.

This is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom completely renovated condo on the top floor of a 3-story walk-up building. Our location provides privacy from the other units and makes you feel like you are in your own world.

The master bedroom has a lanai (balcony) and faces the ocean, so you can't get any closer to the sound or view of the ocean. The second bedroom can be made up as two twin beds or one king.

There is a large lanai off the living room with lounge chairs and an outdoor table. The location of the condo means we watch the morning sun rise over the ocean with an amazing 180 degree view. In the afternoon the sun is behind us allowing the fans and trade winds to maintain comfortable temperatures (there is no air conditioning). The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for you should you want to cook your meals at home.

We welcome families, providing lots of games and baby accessories including a portable crib and stroller. There is a large grassy area right out front and the sand is only about 75 feet away where there is a keiki (children's) pool, perfect for little ones to safely explore the ocean. There is a heated pool for use by all Lae Nani guests and we have a closet with beach gear that you are most welcome to use.

We provide free wireless internet and there is a television in the living room with cable, Netflix and Amazon Prime. There is a stereo that will tune in to local radio stations or play music through your smart phone. We have keyless entry into the condo so you don't need to worry about losing a key. Parking is free and secured.

We welcome you as our guests and hope that you will make our condo your home away from home during your visit to the beautiful Garden Island of Kauai.

About Barb and Ric Berry

The unit is owned by Ric and Barb Berry and it was originally purchased by Ric's dad, Lang. Our office manager, Penny, does a fantastic job of managing the reservations and will always pass things along to us that need our personal attention. Ric is currently on the Board of Directors for Lae Nani and working on the preservation of some land we own on the north shore. Our kids have grown up loving Hawaii and our wish is that they will keep unit 535 in the family for generations to come.

Why Barb and Ric Berry chose Kapaa

This unit has been in the family since the original construction. Ric's father inspected the property prior to building and was advised by the developer to purchase our specific unit.

What makes this condo unique

The East side of Kauai (also known as the Coconut Coast) is unsurpassed in location and access to the rest of the island. The weather here is in between the wet zone (North Shore) and the dry zone (South Shore). Our unit is unique in that the master bedroom is directly facing the ocean and the feeling of privacy from the other units is unsurpassed. We have completed an extensive renovation and continue to update and maintain our unit, striving to create a Hawaiian feel with original artwork and restored local furniture.

Wonderful condo.

  • 5 of 5

Incredible views and central location. We swam in the ocean everyday and whale watched from the deck. We would definitely love to return.

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay while on Kauai. It is everything they say it is and it is really that close to the beach. Our family enjoyed the beach daily (in December). Waking up to the sunrise was amazing. Honestly I am trying to figure out how soon is to soon to go back - I will be staying at Lae Nani 535 again.

Lovely location, wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my sister and I have stayed in Barb and Ric's condo at Lae Nani and it was every bit as great as the first time. This trip we stayed eight nights. We are now in our early 70's so packing our luggage, groceries, etc. up the stairs takes a little more work and time but it is SO worth it! This building is the closest to the beach and furthest from the (potentially) noisy pool area. That and the top (third) floor location of this unit makes it (in our opinion) the best spot at Lae Nani. The master suite with its own deck is a jewel but you can also hear the waves from the back bedroom since you can leave the deck door open with just the screen in place. It's everything we wanted. Bernadette brought us a few missing items right away when we called her after our arrival and we are sure the small improvements we suggested when we checked out will be taken care of right away. Penny is on top of it! We appreciated the friendly and responsive communications as we made our arrangements and during our follow-up. We plan to return!

Really Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 wonderful nights at Lae Nani 535. It is a lovely, large condo which is very tastefully and artistically decorated. You walk into the living room and you are overwhelmed by the ocean view from your lanai. Wow! You are greeted with a welcome goody bag which includes nuts, spice, soap, coffee, etc. , The master bedroom is roomy and has a second lanai. We loved the grounds of the condo complex. It is beautifully landscaped, full of lawn and tropical plants. There are tennis courts and and a lovely pool big enough for swimming laps. There is a beach in front of the complex where people swim and fish when the waves are not too rough. The condo is without AC, but with good windows, breezes and ceiling fans, we were very comfortable. Since the place is right on the water, it is easy to take long walks along the beach. I would highly recommend this place. I will stay here again if we ever come back to Kapaa.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were there for 9 nights and enjoyed every minute. The unit had everything we needed for the four of us. Barbecued by the pool and had cocktails on the lanai's. We all slept well although it does get hot that time of year. The fans were enough to keep us cool while we were there and we were gone most days. Would definitely stay there again.
