This condo has a level entry so groceries, suitcases, and all your bags of souvenirs do not have to be hauled up and down stairs! There is free parking in unmarked stalls.

Fodors has this to say about Kalapaki Bay which is across the street:


Five minutes south of the airport in Lihue, you'll find this wide, sandy-bottom beach fronting the Kauai Marriott. This beach is almost always safe from rip currents and undertows because it's around the backside of a peninsula, in its own cove. There are tons of activities here, including all the usual water sports—beginning and intermediate surfing, bodyboarding, bodysurfing, and swimming—plus, there are two outrigger canoe clubs paddling in the bay and the Nawiliwili Yacht Club's boats sailing around the harbor. Kalapaki is the only place on Kauai where sailboats—in this case Hobie Cats—are available for rent (at Kauai Beach Boys, which fronts the beach next to Duke's Canoe Club restaurant). Visitors can also rent snorkel gear, surfboards, bodyboards, and kayaks from Kauai Beach Boys. A volleyball court on the beach is often used by a loosely organized group of local players; visitors are always welcome. Families prefer the stream end of the beach, whereas those seeking more solitude will prefer the cliff side of the beach. Duke's Canoe Club restaurant is one of only a couple of restaurants on the island actually on a beach; the restaurant's lower level is casual, even welcoming beach attire and sandy feet, perfect for lunch or an afternoon cocktail. Amenities: parking; showers; toilets; water sports; food and drink. Best For: swimming; surfing; partiers; walking.

About Diane Dahlberg

I was born and raised on Oahu and have spent most of my life in Hawaii. I presently live and work on Kauai and will retire here. I love the slow pace and beauty of Kauai!

Diane Dahlberg purchased this condo in 2013

Why Diane Dahlberg chose Nawiliwili

I like the central location on Kauai of this property, the close proximity to the airport, beaches, walking paths, and shopping centers.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is on the ground floor with 2 lanais and there are nice, gentle breezes that come through. It is in a quiet location in the complex and has a nice garden view.

It is located in an ideal central location on the island and is the perfect place to explore Kauai from!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just checked in the condo after garden tour, beach fun, and coffee tour.

The condo is pretty roomy and nice, beyond our expectation. MANY THANKS.

Great location, great property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. Check in and check out was a breeze. The condo was great - it would be perfect for 2 couples. The kitchen was well equipped, and the location was close to the airport for multiple trips! Grocery stores and everything you need was close by.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your special time on Kauai and at my condo. I’ve tried to have everything you need for a wonderful time in my place which includes the fully stocked kitchen, beach towels, etc. I also have more deluxe linens than most. Mahalo for your nice review, Diane

Condo was perfect sized and centrally located.

  • 3 of 5

From the advertising for this place we thought we would have either a view of the ocean or the bay from our lanai - not the case. The lanai faces a green space and a beautiful miniature forest of trees but no water. The condo was perfectly sized and was in a great location. There is constant road noise off the lanai during daylight hours. It had pots, pans, glassware, silverware, cooking utensils but only had 6 plates which was ideal for us but no so good for 4 people wanting to stay here. The knives are super sharp. There was plenty of paper towels, toilet tissue, hand soap, body wash, dishwasher pods and even laundry detergent. There were absolutely no spices or seasoning for cooking and no oils or butter so be sure to stop by the grocery store to buy all of your food items, salt and pepper, oils, butter, tea, etc. The condo has beach towels and snorkel gear. After a long day of exploring the island it was nice to sleep in comfortable beds.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice place to stay. It was very clean. The beds are comfortable and it is air-conditioned. Both bedrooms have their own bathroom. I enjoyed sitting out on the patio. You can hear a little of the traffic from the road, but there is a beautiful dense growth of trees and bushes that block out most of the sounds. Checking in was so easy. The people working the desk where you get the key cards are very friendly and helpful.

Diane is very friendly and was quick to respond to my application and any questions I had.

Another great thing about her place is that it is centrally located to go either direction on the island. There are also places to eat within walking distance and a Safeway grocery store and Costco a short drive away. It is also a short drive to the airport in Lihue.

Great Place to stay!

Great Condo - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. It was very clean and neat. Well stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed walking across the street to the beach, shops, and restaurants. Great restaurants with views of the ocean. We enjoyed the beach. Also the chickens - even the roosters at 3:00 in the morning!! All part of the experience! Would definately recommend this condo for anyone looking for a place to stay in Kauai. Very central location for going to the north or south part of the island. Loved it!!! Thanks for sharing your condo with us.

Complete package

  • 5 of 5

I wasn't expecting a lot because if you will compare the price among others it is actually lower but our stay was beyond expectations. It made our vacation a vacation without breaking the bank. We got everything we needed kitchen, great space for a family, plenty of parking, proximity to all , quiet, A/C, washer /dryer ,pool we didnt care enough for the view because we were mostly out during the day. Bed is comfortable.thank you Diane for letting us stay hope to come back soon
