About the property

1 Bedroom + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2-4

You will find yourself right on the ocean and far from the highway! Sit and relax on your private lanai while watching the waves roll into Wailua beach. The view is truly spectacular. Many guests have shared stories of watching whales breach on the ocean surface for hours at a time right from the lanai.

Wailua Bay View is centrally located near Kapaa by the famous Wailua River and old Coco Palms resort where Elvis filmed 'Blue Hawaii'. It is only 10 minutes from the airport and is a perfect location to base from when sightseeing on the Garden Isle. The condo is situated directly over beautiful Wailua Beach and is only a short walk to Papaloa beach, a protected cove for babies and young children. Lydgate Park is less than a 5 minute drive which boasts the best playground on Kauai. In addition, the County of Kauai just finished a bike path that borders Wailua Bay View and stretches from Kealia Beach to Lydgate park, more than 8 miles in length.

These ground floor units are just steps from the pool and barbeque area. The private lanai is complete with railing for extra security . This makes a perfect set up for families either with or without children, with no stairs to lug up suitcases and groceries. Our condo comes with a fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer in the unit. We also offer free wireless high speed internet, a huge brand new LCD 50 inch flat screen TV, cable TV, Blu-Ray player, king-sized bed, a sofabed, a single futon and even a pack and play/crib for little ones.

About Luke Hofacker

My wife and I love the slower pace of Kauai and opportunity to vacation close to home. We enjoy relaxing at the beach as well as hiking, scube diving, snorkeling, and surfing. No wonder we love Kauai as it is a perfect island for outdoor activities and water sports.

Luke Hofacker purchased this condo in 2013

Why Luke Hofacker chose Kapaa

The view is absolutely amazing. We love being right on the ocean. Kauai has been our favorite vacation destination for many years.

What makes this condo unique

The location is ideal being only 10 minutes from the airport (but far enough away that you never hear an airplane) and central to exploring the island both to the north and south. Wailua Bay View is close to shops and restaurants, yet quiet and peaceful. We really enjoy the walking distance to the protected beach cove for little ones and nearby Lydgate Park.

Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! The view from the balcony was awesome, the place was well maintained, and had everything we needed. The housekeeper did come by to make sure we were doing ok and the host was very accommodating. It was centrally located on the island. Which I liked to be right in the middle, to go either North or South to explore for the day. Overall we would come back anytime!

A 112

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location for family with toddler. The unit's lanai has railings so you can still enjoy the perfect ocean view without worrying about your toddler. It is also close to Lydgate Park that has wading pool for kids.

The unit itself is clean, fresh linens and towels. The only thing is that, not enough supply of paper towels and toilet papers to consume for 3 adults for a week stay.

The owner is very responsive to our requests. TV controls batteries were dead, pots and pans have huge scrapes/ scratches. He changed it all.

If we were to go back, we will stay in this unit again.

FYI, they are strict with the rules. Follow or else you will get a letter or a knock on your door from the HOA landlady.

Wonderful view

  • 4 of 5

We spent 8 nights there and we were very confortable. Well equiped, the view from the lanai was wonderful. It is well situated. We went to restaurants nearby by walk ...street burger and Monico's taqueria and they were very good. We took a ride by bicyle on the bike path and it was really nice! The beach near was great for a walk, but the waves were to strong for us while we where there.

A trip to Cherish for a long, long time

  • 5 of 5

Condo location was excellent - close to the waters, to other beaches and parks, to eateries, to supermarket and even a gas station to fill up your rental car. We found everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxing.

We will be booking this place again.

Great home base with views for days

  • 4 of 5

This place is all about the views. We stayed for our week long honeymoon this October. There is nothing like waking up to the sunrise with the sound of waves crashing on the beach and a front row view of the ocean. We enjoyed watching the wind surfers do their thing everyday from the lanai. This place is conveniently located to shopping and dining options. It's also a nice location to explore the island from as it is centrally located. The condo itself was well equipped. The pool is nice and well maintained. The only reason why I am not giving it 5 stars is because we felt the bed was uncomfortably firm however I let the owner know and he said that we were the first to complain about that so maybe it's just a personal preference thing. Like the other reviews stated, you can hear road noise from the bedroom but the AC drowns out a lot of that if you put it on. There were also some shady characters that hang out at the gas station across the street but we never had a problem with any of them at the condo. We felt that it was secure. We met Tim, the property manager, and he was very friendly. He also happens to be an Uber driver. We found that out when he picked us up for an Uber ride to a luau. We liked that we could stream Netflix on the TV a couple nights when we just wanted to cook at "home" and relax. This is a great place to enjoy beautiful Kauai.

Convenient location & beautiful apartment in Kapaa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Kauai in September and had a wonderful time in this apartment. Luke was very easy to work with, and checking in was very easy. The apartment is in a great location (15 min or so from the airport) and was very clean and perfect for the two of us. The first thing we noticed as we walked in was the amazing view of the ocean from the lanai, it was great to wake up to it every day. The other pleasant surprise was having an air conditioner in the bedroom which helped while sleeping in the evenings.

We are very happy to have stayed in Kapaa since it made seeing the North and South of the island very easy. We did not use the pool since we preferred seeing the gorgeous beaches of Kauai, but it seemed very clean and was only a few steps away from the apartment. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in Kauai.
