'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.

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.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for our honeymoon and it was wonderful. The condo added all the extra touches to our amazing Kauai honeymoon. The condo itself is even more beautiful than the pictures shown here. The condo is very tastefully decorated and comes with everything you need. We enjoyed breakfasts on the lanai while listening to the sound of the ocean waves. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The bed is super comfortable to sleep on. Beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, snorkel gear, etc... are all there for you to use. There is now even a boogie-board in the unit. People leave stuff like sunscreen and bug spray, so make sure you check in the bathroom cabinets for those would of saved us a trip to the store if we had. Working with Mary was fantastic and she was super helpful. Consider yourself lucky if you can get a hold of this unit.

Owner's Response: Aloha Paul and Anne, Thank you for your kind words. We are thrilled that you chose to spend your honeymoon with us. Our condo and its location are so beautiful and it is impossible to convey that with words and pictures. They don't do it justice. We hope you have a wonderful life together and are honored that you began your marriage at our condo. Hopefully, we will see you in the future. Much happiness to you both. Mary & Daryl

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here while on Kauai to celebrate our 30th anniversary. WOW! That about sums it up. The view from the lanai was fabulous, sunrises were spectacular and the grounds are absolutely gorgeous. The condo has everything you could need and more. We were able to fully prepare our own meals in the beautiful kitchen and enjoy the view of the ocean (and whales) while we sat on the lanai and ate. The central location of the condo is ideal for exploring the island. You are about halfway between the Waimea Canyon and the north shore which makes almost everything on the island within an hour drive. We also ate at some fabulous restaurants in Kappa which is only minutes away. If you want to feel like you have your own little piece of oceanfront property in this peaceful paradise, this is the place. Thank you so much Daryl & Mary for your hospitality and help with making the trip of a lifetime come true! When we come back to Kauai we will definitely be staying at this property again! Mahalo!!

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 1 week in this condo and absolutely loved everything about it. There is a warm homely feeling about this condo and views were spectacular. One big plus was the fully furnished kitchen which helped us with the cooking for our kid.

It is also in great location, close to baby beach and Lydgate park. The market place is also close and I would definitely recommend it to families with kids.

The community is clean and quite and staff and other guests were very friendly. Thanks for making our stay unforgettable.

Our condo is totally remodeled from top to bottom with many custom home features including Brazilian Cherry cabinets, granite countertops, travertine and marble throughout, and Tommy Bahama furniture. The kitchen is fully equipped with professional cookware and is a gourmet chef's delight. New patio furniture, including a dining set, graces the lanai. There is a new high definition tv in the living room with a blu-ray player and also a new high definition tv in the bedroom. Linens are high thread count cotton. Please note: washer and dryer are located steps from the condo in the complex laundry. This condo is cooled by ceiling and floor fans and ever present tradewinds. None of the condos on site, including ours, and very few condos on Kauai have air conditioning. The condo is surrounded by Lydgate Park. There is a bike/ walking path in front of our condo that goes for miles in either direction.
