Summer 2017 Special, only $135/night from May through July...Upgraded oceanfront condo, sleeps 4!

We invite you to come explore Kauai, and stay at our Hale Hokulani (House of Starry Heavens). Turn your Hawaiian dreams into lifelong memories at Wailua Bay View #214, in Kapaa, Kauai. Relax on the private lanai, just a stone’s throw to the crashing waves. At night be amazed by the moon and a sky full of stars...in the morning you can watch glorious sunrises over the blue Pacific Ocean, sipping your fresh-brewed Kauai coffee. Located on the Royal Coconut Coast, 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 the complex that sits 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. Includes FREE Wifi, FREE parking, and brand new washer/dryer, with NO resort fees. Feel the flow-thru trade winds, with the ceiling and floor fans (A/C in bedroom only).

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. Scroll down and read our reviews, we have 100 in less than 5 years of ownership, with several from returning guests. Look for reviews on other popular travel sites, there are several for our condo, search Wailua Bay View #214. We continually upgrade and improve our home away from home. Just added: all new carpeting, with super-soft pad underneath, and a 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.

It’s 750 sq. feet of paradise, with everything you need for your island escape...the only thing missing is YOU! Remember to plan ahead, our calendar stays pretty full.

Plan a multi-island trip, for Kauai and magical Maui and get a discount! Under the "Owner Info" tab, there's a link for our other rental listing, an oceanfront studio condo in Kahana, West Maui (vrbo.com/770866) that we've been blessed to own since Oct. 2015. It's been getting 5-star reviews too, and has a great location between Ka'anapali and Kapulua. We'll waive Maui's cleaning fee ($100) if you book concurrent stays in both condos for your Hawaiian getaway!

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 Ham

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 (one cleaning fee) for concurrent stays. (Stays must be booked at the same time).

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 Ham purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jim and Crystal Ham chose Coconut Coast

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!

Notes:

You're steps away from the half-mile long Wailua Beach, which encompasses Wailua Bay and Wailua River State Park. There's a long, paved beach walk/bike trail right in front of the complex. You can walk along the beach to the north, to a keiki (children's) pool, and a sacred heiau (ancient Hawaiian temple). 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!

Best ocean side experience.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as advertised. It was clean and quiet except for the ocean waves which were 50 feet from our balcony. Which was what we loved so much about the location. It also had a great bed and walk in shower and the kitchen had everything we needed. One morning at sunrise we went down to the beach and there was a humpback whale 3 or 4 hundred yards off shore. What an amazing experience. We will definitely be coming back next year.

Great place to stay - centrally located

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo. It is clean, decorated nicely, and stocked with anything you could need for your stay. The bed is super comfy. There is room darkening window treatments in the bedroom. The view from the condo is spectacular. They have water play equipment for you to enjoy. The owners have done a very nice job making it comfortable and inviting. The condo complex is small which is exactly what I wanted. The view from the lanai was amazing. I would want to stay here on my next visit to Kauai! The condo location is centrally located to anywhere you would want to go on the island.

Owner's Response: Aloha Wendy, thanks for the review, and we're so glad you found our condo comfortable and inviting. On our twice a year visits, we make sure to keep it that way! We feel that Wailua Bay View is Kauai's little known secret...an oceanfront complex, in a great location, affordable and convenient to all the island. We'd love to host you again, and until then we wish you much Aloha! Mahalo, Crystal and Jim

Perfect Place in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This well-maintained pristine condo is tastefully decorated, has amazing views, lots of extra items, everything you need in the kitchen. beach toys, chairs, coolers etc. The King size bed is comfortable, plenty of thick towels, washer dryer. The facility is well maintained on the outside, the pool and landscaping. Excellent location located to stores, restaurants and beaches. Walk across the street and enjoy great food -fresh Mexican food, a wonderful burger place and a yummy bakery to get morning snacks/coffee. Absolutely a fantastic place to stay. Owners are very responsive to questions by e-mail. The caretaker Marvis is always helpful and dedicated to making sure you have a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Aloha John and Lori, congratulations you are review # 100! We humbly read your words of praise, and realize our decision 5 years ago to buy a vacation rental condo on Kauai was a good one! We love our guests, and we take careful care of our little place in paradise, visiting twice a year to make upgrades and refurbishments. Helping provide memorable, enjoyable trips is very gratifying, and we are incredibly blessed. Marvis is a jewel, as our eyes and ears on the island. So happy you enjoyed your vacation, and we wish you much Aloha! Mahalo nui loa, Crystal and Jim

Special spot

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful spot, great to listen to the ocean and sit on the lanai. Location is convenient to get to both sides of the island. Loved that there were coolers and towels and an umbrella for use. My only complaint is that the AC unit is extremely loud and disruptive to sleep because it kicks on and off continuously throughout the night. Slept in the living room instead due to it. Otherwise, wonderful place!

Owner's Response: Aloha Rachel, thanks for the review. You mentioned sitting on the lanai watching waves, that's our favorite thing too...it is mesmerizing! And sleeping out in the living room, being lulled to sleep by the ocean...heaven! We've found the AC is seldom needed, except during brief periods. The ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom, the additional floor fans we've added, and those great tradewinds are usually sufficient. Wishing you much aloha, Crystal and Jim

The property is exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for "ocean front"...this is the place for you. The condo is centrally located, which made it a perfect location for exploring the entire Island. We didn't want for a thing. We dined on the lanai most of the time. You will find the kitchen extremely well equipped. We found the condo to be very clean. Master bedroom was comfortable and quiet.The beach...a very convenient, short walk from the condo, where we swam and snorkled. Saw several whales from the lanai and watched the cruise ships in the distance. We are a (friendly) adult family of 4, the condo accommodated us nicely....we all wished we could have stayed longer! We would recommend this condo to friends, and hope to return one day...it was the perfect place for us. The condo shows pride of ownership, and the owners Crystal and Jim Ham are excellent to work with. Aloha, Ken, Susan, Greg and Valerie.
