About the property

1 Bdrm/1 Bath Direct Oceanfront, Bath Remodel, Stunning Views, Steps to Beach

Come explore Kauai...turn your Hawaiian dreams into lifelong memories! Welcome to Hale Hokulani (House of Starry Heavens) where you'll experience upscale home comfort, with Aloha. Relax on the private lanai, you're just a stone’s throw to the crashing waves. Nighttime brings amazing moonrises and a sky full of stars, and in the morning you'll see glorious sunrises over the blue Pacific Ocean, while you sip your freshly-brewed Kauai coffee. Located on the Royal Coconut Coast in Kapaa, just 10 minutes from the Lihue airport, it's a convenient starting point for day trips over the entire island. Close to golf, Lydgate Park, kayaking on the Wailua River, Luaus, bike paths, swimming and restaurants. See the aerial photo, we're on the quiet side of Wailua Bay View (#214), furthest from the road.

This direct oceanfront condo has one bedroom, with A/C and King bed. You'll sleep like a baby on the memory foam topper and luxury sheets. Enjoy the completely renovated spa-like bathroom, and full kitchen including a dishwasher. The living room has a love seat and queen size sofa bed.

As owners we personally manage our condo, answer your questions, and visit 2 or 3 times a year to ensure all is as promised. We have a fantastic on-island staff, should any need arise.

Just added: all new carpeting, a waffle maker, hand mixer, and key-less entry system for convenient check-in. Check what guests have said in the "Reviews" about our double-paned noise reduction windows in the bedroom. They open for breezes, and close tightly for a quiet night's sleep.

There’s 2 flat screen TV’s with cable, and Blu-Ray player. You’ll find coolers, plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, and beach umbrella. Use the BBQ grills and swim in the newly renovated pool downstairs. Peruse our many guide books, and our 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.

Plan a multi-island trip, for Kauai and magical Maui and get a discount! We'll waive Maui's cleaning fee of $100 if you book consecutive stays in each of our oceanfront condos for your Hawaiian getaway. Both bookings must be made concurrently, or at the same time, they must be for 5 nights or longer in each condo, totaling 10 nights or more. See our oceanfront studio condo in Kahana, West Maui at vrbo.com/770866. We've been blessed to own this little jewel since Oct. 2015. It's been getting 5-star reviews too, and has a great location between Ka'anapali and Kapulua.

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

About Jim and Crystal

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 overseas. During our travels we've 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" we've been blessed to own since 2012, and can't wait till retirement so we can spend spend more time there.

In October 2015 we purchased another little piece of paradise on Maui, a large oceanfront studio at Pohailani Maui in Kahana. You'll find it at vrbo.com/770866. If you're going to Hawaii, you need to be oceanfront! Come be our guests, and experience the the Aloha and magic of Hawaii. Visit our condos in Maui and Kauai, and we give a discount (Maui's cleaning fee, $100) for consecutive stays, booked at the same time. Stays must be 5 nights or longer at each condo, for a total of 10 nights or more. Email for more information!

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!

Jim and Crystal purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jim and Crystal chose Kapaa

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!

What makes this condo unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I don't know when one of my "spur of the moment" trips has ever turned out so smoothly. I attribute it all to my hosts.

First, your vacation condo was available; second, it is so perfectly stocked! Kitchen items, beach items, and what a comfortable place to hang. The bed is very comfortable. Thank you for the high end sheets, towels, dinner dishes and silverware.

You have thought of everything and you should know that it hasn't gone unnoticed. Your perseverance is looking for the perfect view, location, and atmosphere completely paid off!

Only 5 minutes away from Lydgate Park, with protected snorkeling ponds and a fantastic playground. Wailua Bay View is all about the 'bay view'! And although you can swim in Wailua Bay, it is known for swells and riptides. Not for novices! That's why the local surfers and bodyboarders love it, and they are fun to watch!

Relaxing and enjoying this perfectly located condo at the end of each day

VRBO Bear stayed here

Dec 27, 2013

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.

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing condo!!! This place has everything a traveller needs....washer/dryer, beach chairs, beach towels, and a gorgeous lanai overlooking a beautiful beach. Plus a great pool that gets a fair amount of shade, essential for the fair-skinned visitors. And when the trade winds disappeared for a couple of days and the humidity hit, I was very thankful for the air conditioner in the bedroom!

Kauai Favourites:

~Monico's (across street)...amazing Mexican food and killer margaritas!

~Sunrise bakery - great coffee and treats

~Lydgate Park & Poip'u - for beginner snorkelers

~Jack Harter Helicopter tour - open door ride.....amazing!!!!

~Lemongrass restaurant (Kaapa) - delicious food!

Thank you for letting us stay here, it was the first week of our honeymoon and it couldn't have been better. We will definitely be coming back to Kauai (the most beautiful island!) and this condo!

Just a wow experience

  • 5 of 5

The condo was so perfectly located everything is easily available to you at almost any time. The ocean waves crashing outside or something not to be missed you definitely have to sleep with the door open to hear these awesome sounds. If I have the chance I would definitely come back to this condo situated just perfectly on the beach.

Great time in Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was lovely and very clean. The condo had comfortable living room furniture and king-sized bed. We appreciated the fact that the condo complex was always very quiet. The pool water was crystal clear, and was in a nice setting with beautiful landscaping. Two gas grills located near the pool were clean and worked well. We enjoyed breakfast every morning on the lanai, looking at and listening to the surf. The view from the lanai of Wailua Bay is spectactular.The Timberline zero-gravity chair on the lanai was very comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped; the refrigerator was spotless. Also provided were very comfortable Tommy Bahama beach chairs, 2 picnic coolers, snorkeling equipment, 2 boogie boards, and an umbrella. Location makes it easy to get to both South and North shores of Kauai. Crystal responded to our questions in a timely manner.

Mahalo, Crystal and Jim!

Is this what Heaven looks like?

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Wailua Bay View, #214 And just loved it. We were there 9/5-9/13. We were delighted by the condo itself, very clean and neat and by its easy proximity to virtually everything. The view off the lanai is so fantastic, it hardly seemed real. Crystal was excellent to work with and we liked that Marvis (the cleaning person/on island contact) was so present on the property every day. 4 days into our trip I contracted double pneumonia and was in the hospital for a few days. Because of this, we had to fly back 2 days after our scheduled departure. Crystal was able to accommodate this little hiccup and allowed us to stay 2 additional nights in the condo. If we needed to stay longer, Marvis knew another property owner in the complex who could put us up another night, if need be. Fantastic customer service and very easily accessible. Couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay or nicer owners to work with. Mahalo to Crystal and Jim for letting us borrow their little slice of Heaven! By the way, we saw sea turtles and a pod of dolphins off the lanai. Exciting!
