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 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.

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

Great lil place close to everything!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Diane's place it had everything we needed. There's plenty of stuff to take to the beach toys umbrellas layout mats chairs everything. The furnishings have a comfy at home feeling. The two bathrooms with two full showers worked great for our family. awesome location right near the airport and about the middle the island. So nothing is more than an hour to a hour-and-a-half away. Diane was very accommodating to everything we needed and her little binder definitely gives you tips to good places. The entire complex is very nice and clean the pool is great. So if you're looking for a great little place in Lihue this is perfect for you.

Comfortable condo and great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our adult son shared the two bedroom condo for a week in May. The location is ideal, a few minutes from the airport, walking distance to stores and great restaurants and the beach. Very comfortable condo, clean and well equipped with comfortable beds. Two baths, one with a tub and one with a shower. Washer and dryer on site. Fully equipped kitchen. Ground floor location with two lanais. Air conditioner in the living room and ceiling fans throughout. Located in the Banyon Harbor complex. Nice pool. We really enjoyed our stay!

Nice condo in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in the condo, was awesome having 2 bathrooms. Is located across the street from Nawiliwili beach, 5 minute walk. Well lit bbq area where made many new friends. Staying in Lihue was awesome as has Costco and Kmart right there and is pretty much smack dab in the middle of the 2 furthest points of travel on the island.
