Property description

Welcome to Hale Hokulani (House of Starry Heavens), our vacation home on beautiful Kauai! Turn your Hawaiian dreams into lifelong memories, and escape to Wailua Bay View #214. Located on the Royal Coconut Coast, just 10 minutes north of the airport, it's a convenient starting point for day trips over the entire island. You'll only be 2 minutes from the Wailua Golf Course, a highly rated municipal course right on the oceanfront!

This direct oceanfront condo has a bedroom with an A/C and Cal-King bed, a newly renovated bathroom, full kitchen, a living/dining room with a queen size sofa bed, and a full-size washer/dryer. The very private lanai is a stone’s throw to the crashing waves. It’s 750 sq. feet of paradise, with spectacular sunrises, panoramic views, relaxing sounds, and restful sleeps. The only thing missing is YOU! Remember to plan ahead, our calendar stays pretty full!

Road noise will not be an issue in this unit! Check out what guests have said in the "Reviews" section about our new double-paned sound-dampening inner windows in the bedroom. They slide open for the trade winds, and close tightly for a quiet night's sleep. The only sounds you'll hear are the ocean waves! We constantly upgrade and make improvements to our home away from home. We've just replaced all carpeting in the unit, and added a super-soft pad underneath. We now have a key-less entry system, for convenient check-in. You can unpack, into the closet and large dresser, so you won't be living out of a suitcase!

As owners we personally manage our condo, answer your questions, and visit 2 or 3 times a year to make sure all is as promised. Our efforts, combined with our excellent on-island staff, has led to success. Scroll down to our reviews, at last count there were 80 reviews in 4 years of ownership, with several from returning guests! Look for reviews on other popular travel sites, there are several for our condo, Wailua Bay View #214.

There’s always plenty of free parking, free Wifi, 2 flat screen TV’s with cable, and a Blu-Ray player. There's a bedroom A/C, with ceiling and floor fans throughout. You’ll find coolers, beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrella. Peruse our many guide books, and the Guest Binder with recommendations for restaurants, tours, and boat trips we’ve personally experienced. We list the local Farmer’s Markets, including one at the Coconut Marketplace, a 5 minute walk away. You can walk to many restaurants, bakeries, shops, kayak and bike rental locations, and great beaches. The spectacular, newly completed Kauai Bike/Walking Path is right out front.

Are you dreaming of a multi-island trip, perhaps for Kauai and lovely Maui? Under the "Owner Info" tab, there's a link called "All my rental listings". Click to see the oceanfront studio condo in the Kahana area of West Maui we purchased and listed in Oct. 2015. It's already gotten many 5-star reviews! It's at vrbo.com/770866. We give discounts if you book stays in both condos for your Hawaiian getaway!

Come see Hawaii and explore an island paradise. You’ll hike, play golf, snorkel, sunbathe and shop, but the irresistible pull of our lanai, and the view of those mesmerizing waves, will call you back…you won’t want to leave! Feel the Aloha spirit yet? Enjoy your Hawaiian holiday!

Relaxing and enjoying this perfectly located condo at the end of each day 12/27/2013

VRBO Bear stayed here:


New Year’s in Kauai is just what the Bear family ordered for our winter getaway! This bear couple was spoiled on their 20th Anniversary with this perfectly located Condo in Wailua, on the Coconut Coast. It was the perfect location for us to do everything we wanted in Kauai.

The condo is situated at the end of the complex – away from street noise – and close to the fabulous beach and ocean view. Right when we arrived, we headed straight to the balcony to take in the sounds and view that is Kauai. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed for the beach as well as a clean and organized kitchen. And, they had air conditioning in the bedroom if it was too hot. But we didn’t need it. There were plenty of windows to open to catch the ocean breezes!

The location of our condo was perfect. We had easy access to multiple grocery stores and restaurants. But, we were far enough from town that we didn’t feel like we couldn’t get away from everything. The owners were also very attentive and surprised us with some snacks, coffee and a bottle of wine waiting for our arrival!

It seems to me that the owners really care about their home! They recently remodeled their bathroom into a mini oasis! The large shower head and openness of the space was very relaxing. They provided us plenty of towels and supplies for our visit.

One of our favorite evenings was walking over to Waialua Bay (about a 2 minute walk) with our beach chairs in hand, a tasty beverage, sitting close to the water and watching the stars. It was dark and peaceful in the evening. We brought a flashlight with us to find our way. After sitting and chatting for a while, we decided to look at what was around us with our flash lights. To our surprise, there were about 10 tiny crabs frozen by our light – staring at us. Then they quickly zipped back into the water or into their homes in the sand. It was a magical evening for all of us.

I really enjoy going on bike rides and it is very easy to go biking in Kauai. There was a bike path (called the Ke Ala Hele Makalae 7 mile trail) that starts directly across from our condo – which becomes a dedicated path in Kapa’a after 2 miles. Papa Bear LOVES to roller skate, so Mama Bear got a Bike (with room for me!) and we took that path at least 3 times on our visit. It goes all the way to Kuna Bay where we got to play in the waves and watch the surfers. I’m glad we brought towels and sunscreen!

During our visit, we got to head to the North Shore and visit the remote area of Wainiha and Tunnels Beach to go snorkeling. The waves were too high at the Tunnels Beach (in the Winter the water is more rough in the North), so we decided to check-out the Kalalau Trail – which is an 11 mile trail that goes all the way over to the Na Pali Coast. Our family loves to snorkel – so we were looking forward to the location. But, the trail was very beautiful and in the lush jungle. The trail was a little much for my little legs to handle, so we only made it a ½ mile in – but I’m glad I went that far and got to enjoy the views!

A few days later we headed to the South end of the Island to snorkel at Poipu Beach. There were a lot more people down there, but the snorkeling was great! We also snorkeled near our condo at Lydgate Park. It was a sheltered swimming area that had a few fish to see. There were lots of families there and I felt much safer and protected from the higher waves!

At the end of every day, it was nice to get back to our comfortable condo. We could cook what we wanted and barbeque by the pool. We made Hawaiian Ribs one night – they took 3 hours to cook – so I got to swim in the beautiful pool and warm my fur in the sun! Another night we picked up some giant Kauai farm raised shrimp on our way back from Waimea in Hanapepe. They were so good! And a bargain too! We cooked those by the pool as well.

It is always sad when it is time to go home. But, we had a relaxing and enjoyable time at this condo in Wailua. The location, amenities and scenery made this one of the most memorable vacations we have had in a long time. I will definitely tell my friends about this magical trip. Thank you for accepting the Bear into your home in Kauai.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband and I grew up in Northern California, and we love the ocean! A 20 year naval career allowed us to frequently live near water on both coasts and 2 countries in Europe. Being blessed with the opportunity to travel extensively, we have stayed in many different types of accommodations, the good and the not so good. We know what works! We love our little "home away from home", and can't wait till retirement so we can spend more time there! We love all of Hawaii, and especially Kauai for the incomparable beauty and rich lush landscapes. It offers diverse adventure, in an uncrowded atmosphere, and hearkens back to the Hawaii of old. We’re happy to share our condo, and spread the Aloha!

Why the Owner Chose Kapaa, HI, USA:
Wailua Bay View Unit 214 offers the oceanfront location we love, with privacy and convenience. It allows you to enjoy real Hawaii, with all the comforts of home! With a full kitchen, you'll spend less on eating out. Pack lightly, because you'll have a washer/dryer in the unit!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Within seconds of walking into this condo, as you approach the sliding doors to the lanai, you will experience the breezes, the roar of the surf, and the wide open ocean in front of you! You'll watch surfers, paddle boarders, and sometimes outrigger canoe races! Watch for the occasional turtle bobbing in the waves, and whales in the winter. At night, you'll be lulled to dreamland by the sound of the crashing waves. The moon rising and reflecting off the water will be stunning! (Try to come during a full moon!) You will feel right at home, and won't want to leave!
