CALLING ALL ROMANTICS AND HONEYMOONERS! INCREDIBLE BARGAIN FOR LUXURY CONDO STEPS FROM THE WATER- TOTALLY REDONE. (2nd floor end condo ensures maximum views and privacy!)

'This was a beautiful condo in the perfect location! You absolutely cannot go wrong with this place. The condo itself was gorgeous with a breathtaking view. Ocean view indeed! The grounds were quiet, especially at night. Unless you count the sound of the ocean waves lulling you to sleep.' Renee L

Walk into our spectacular oceanfront condominium and prepare to have your breath taken away. Totally remodeled, with dramatic views of the ocean and coastline, it is the closest building to the ocean. The living room opens to a spacious lanai and stunning ocean panoramas. The trade winds create a wonderful breeze throughout the condo. You are so close to the water that the waves will lull you to sleep. Watch whales (during winter months) and dolphins from the comfort of the living room or from your private lanai. This oceanfront end unit condo is located on the second floor and has amazing views of the beautiful Kauai shore.

Our central location on the Coconut Coast of Kauai's east side makes it easy to explore the entire island. The Kaha Lani is completely surrounded by open space which creates a quiet and peaceful setting. The oceanfront Wailua Golf Course, rated one of the top municipal golf courses in the nation, is next door to the south and within easy walking distance. Just steps across the lawn from our condo are miles of beautiful uncrowded beaches. Follow the foot / bike path that runs between the condo and the beach to the north and you will arrive at Lydgate State Park beach (about a 5-7 minute walk). Here you will find 2 sheltered lagoons perfect for snorkeling and swimming.

Follow the foot path south of the Kaha Lani and you will arrive at the Kamalani Playground and Kamalani Bridge, a great community-built playground for children. “Kitchens”, an excellent surfing beach, is just south of the condo as well. Walk the miles of unspoiled white sand beaches right in front of your condo or enjoy the lush tropical landscaping on the grounds of Kaha Lani.

Our condo is perfectly situated in the middle of the island with restaurants, shopping, golf and incredible beaches at your disposal. We are just minutes from the Wailua River, the airport, the Smith Family Luau, the Coconut Marketplace, other shopping, and the quaint town of Kapa’a.

Activities abound in this excellent central location. The Smith Family Luau, the most popular luau on the island, is almost across the street. The Wailua River is 1 minute away. Take a boat ride up it to the Fern Grotto or canoe up the Wailua to the Secret Falls trailhead. Opaeka'a Falls is minutes away. Or rent bikes in Kapa'a and ride along the ocean.

The condo has been totally remodeled. Relax on the new lanai furniture or enjoy the Tommy Bahama furnishings that reflect the island lifestyle. The kitchen, which sports custom Brazilian Cherry cabinets, granite countertops, and modern stainless appliances, is a gourmet chef’s playground. Both bathrooms have travertine floors, granite countertops on custom vanities and marble surrounds the tub/shower in the main bath. Enjoy the luxury of your king sized bed with high thread count linens.

A short walk from your door are the swimming pool, outdoor barbecues and tennis courts where you can lounge, play, take a refreshing dip or grill your island favorites while taking in the gorgeous views. The Kaha Lani is truly the epitome of paradise. We welcome the opportunity to share our “home away from home” with you for the island experience of a lifetime.

Our home is NON-SMOKING.

About Mary Hinson

The minute we walked into our condo, we fell in love with it. It was a diamond in the rough. We have put our heart and soul into restoring it so others might enjoy it also.

We live in Tucson, AZ for most of the year and treasure the time we spend in our 2nd home on Kauai.

Mary Hinson purchased this condo in 2010

Why Mary Hinson chose Lihue-Kalapaki

My husband and I have been visiting Kauai for years. When we visit, we feel as if we are coming home.

We fell in love with our condo the minute we walked in. It was a 'diamond in the rough', but we could only imagine ourselves there. My brother and sister-in-law visited and they, too, fell in love with this condo. We bought it as our family's second home.

The great location was a primary reason for purchasing our condo. It is close to the airport, golfing, surfing, swimming and snorkeling , shopping and many outdoor activities. Because it is so close to the water and is completely surrounded by open space, it feels like our own private oasis. It is close to the Wailua River, the Smith Family Luau, Opaekaa Falls, and tons of spectacular scenery.

The bike/ walking path, which is steps from our condo, offers the opportunity to walk or bike for mikes along the ocean. There are miles and miles of unspoiled beaches. We also really like that our condo is midway between the North Shore and the South Shore. The Kapaa area is warmer in the winter than the North Shore. There are also great restaurants and shops nearby.

What makes this condo unique

There are so many benefits that are unique to our condo. It is stunningly beautiful.

Our condo is an oceanfront end unit. It is closest to the water. When you walk in, you will gasp in amazement. The views are breathtaking. Luxurious features, including Tommy Bahama furniture, a gourmet kitchen with custom Brazilian Cherry cabinets and granite countertops, travertine and marble throughout, and high thread count linens will ensure that your stay will be amazing.

We enjoy sitting on the new patio furniture on the lanai and watching the whales and dolphins swim by. We watch spectacular sunrises while sipping our morning coffee on the lanai.

The other thing we love about our condo is its outstanding central location. It is completely surrounded by open space- the ocean in front, Lydgate Park bordering the north, the Wailua Golf Course to the south, and county/ state land to the east. It is a private oasis yet is close to everything. There is a great bike/ walking path immediately in front of our condo that stretches for miles along the shore. We can walk or bike to stores or other beaches. There are miles and miles of beaches in front of the condo, including a great surfing beach next door.

Surrounded by serenity, it is truly our heavenly place.

Clean and well kept. Great location and unbeatable view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at 219 Kaha Lani. It had stunning views of the ocean and we spent much time relaxing on the lanai. It was also a great location on the island, with less than an hours drive to any of the great spots, whether north or south. 5 mins to the Safeway and other shopping / snorkel gear rental etc. Also walking distance to Lydgate beach park which is a great swimming area for kids if you have them! The condo is slightly off the highway (not the same for many others) which means it was a little more quiet.

The unit was clean, nicely appointed, and the bed was comfortable. Despite no AC, we didn't feel hot the whole time - ocean breezes and fans kept things nice and cool. Mary was a pleasure to deal with as well.

Great experience and highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Aloha Brad and Johanna, We are so happy that you chose to stay at our condo and that you had a great trip. We agree that the location is perfect and are happy you loved our "home away from home." You are right about the view; it is incredible. Every time I walk into the condo, my heart drops at the sight of the ocean. I feel as if I could reach out and touch it as it is so close. We are honored that you chose to stay with us and hope you'll be back. With much aloha, Mary & Daryl

Beautiful unit and very responsive owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent four nights in this condo. It was beautiful and clean. The lanai had amazing views of the ocean! Mary was great about offering area information, ideas about what to do and where to go, etc. The helicopter ride was the highlight of our trip! She was very quick to get back to us with any questions - even when I asked her where to find the coffee grinder! :) The only drawback was the lack of AC. I knew about this when I booked the condo, but it was a little warmer inside than I expected, especially during the day. The bedroom had two fans in it, so we were fine at night, but we were a little warm (at times) in the rest of the unit. Maybe that's just us - we live in Arizona so we're used to dry air and everything being overly air conditioned! Ha ha. It's still a great place to stay - just something to be aware of. Kauai is a beautiful place with lots of amazing things to do. Unfortunately, my husband and I both got a miserable virus which put a serious dent in our Hawaiian vacation! We tried our best to have fun anyway, but I'd like a do-over! When that day comes, I would consider staying here again. I would also recommend it to others. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Aloha Kim, Thanks for your review and for choosing to stay with us. I'm so sorry you became ill doing your visit. You definitely need a redo of your Hawaiian vacation. I'm sorry you were a bit warm. Usually, the condo is very comfortable.The living room and the bedroom each have two fans, both a ceiling fan and a tower floor fan, and the kitchen has a fan on the counter. We are so close to the ocean and it's also cooled by the tradewinds. (We stayed there 10 days right before you and I actually got cool, so I guess it depends on the guest). Hope you're both feeling much better and that you'll be back to Kauai. Mahalo, Mary

Fabulous Place and Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place and will always stay here when we visit Kauai. First off, the owners are absolutely top-shelf. Most of my correspondence was with Mary, and she always returned phone calls and responded to emails promptly, usually within minutes, and she was very helpful and forthcoming with information. We had a medical emergency and had to make change to our reservation and the owners could not have been more helpful and understanding. The management company they use, Kauai Vacation Rentals, is also very good; returning phone calls, sending information, and making sure everything goes smoothly. You can make this reservation and rest assured all will go well.

The unit itself is everything described on line and more; well appointed, beautiful, comfortable furniture, great kitchen, fabulous views, etc. The kitchen was the best equipped we’ve ever seen in a condo. It had every utensil you could possibly want to prepare any meal. We loved morning coffee and afternoon cocktails on the lanai, walks along the beach, and the morning sunrise. The location itself is very quiet, but only minutes from great restaurants and shopping.

If you’re considering this unit you are already sold on the wonderfulness of Kauai, and the owners made the experience even more wonderful by sending us a write-up of things to do and things to avoid in the area. Be sure to ask them for it. Ninety percent of what we did was on Mary’s list of recommendations and we were very happy with all of them. We took an Island Helicopter Jurassic Falls trip and a Holo Holo Charters Napali coast tour and both were excellent. We ate at the following restaurants and all were very good to excellent: Hukilau Lanai, Kauai Pasta, Eggberts, Tiki Tacos, Monico’s, Sushi Bushido, and Dukes. Tunnels beach had rip tide warnings the day we were there (it was April), so snorkeling was somewhat limited but still good. The beach itself is the most beautiful we’ve ever seen, well worth the walk to get there. Thanks again Mary & Daryl for sharing your wonderful condo and your excellent advice.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our 25th anniversary trip from 9/5/13 to 9/12/13 and it couldn't have been more wonderful. We just loved the condo, the location and most of all the view!!!! Incredible! When were "at home" we spent most of our time on the lanai. Right before sunrise was the most breathtaking so get up early! I was blown away every morning by the sheer beauty of the sky and ocean. We also loved sitting out at night and watching the stars. A very special condo and very well taken care of. We hardly ate out since the first day there we went to Costco and stocked up on food and drink. How nice to eat on the deck and have a pina colada there at the end of the day. We hope to be back one day, Kauai is a very special place and so it this condo!

Stunning, oceanfront and more!

  • 5 of 5

Ideally located on the east coast of Kauai between Poipu and Princeville, this condo is everything the owners said it would be in their description on VRBO: beautifully furnished, steps away from a beach where you can walk for miles without passing another soul, with very close access to great restuarants, supermarkets (Kapa'a has both Foodland and Safeway), etc. I would highly recommend the Ono Family Restaurant for great breakfast dining as well as a bowl of saimin to die for. Also close, in Anahola, is Duane's Ono Charburger, which beats Bubba's hands down. Great access to Lydgate Park and a walking path that goes on forever. The condo had everything we needed to prepare meals, and featured a lanai with that picture perfect view of the sunrises and beach with which to dine or relax too. Unforgettable vacation, thanks in large to this gorgeous condo.
