About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This unit was just renovated by an HGTV interior designer and is virtually identical to another unit that was featured on the HGTV show House Hunters that aired in November 2013. Unit 109 offers the most luxurious accommodations for the best value. Unobstructed ocean view, convenient location & newly renovated and completely upgraded make this Wailua Bay View condo the best choice for your Kauai vacation! All new furnishings, bathroom and kitchen fixtures, hardwood floors (driftwood beach finish), appliances, Caesar stone (quartz material counters), under cabinet lighting, glass back splashes, solar shades, new front and slider doors, smooth finish walls, and a new air conditioner. Over $100,000 spent on the renovation! Enjoy the soothing sound of the surf, the panoramic ocean & coastline view and gorgeous Hawaiian sun & moon rises! This ground floor unit is perfectly situated within the complex close to the swimming pool & BBQ area. Wailua Bay View is in the heart of Kauai's Coconut Coast. Restaurants, shopping & golf are just a short stroll or a few minutes away.

In addition, Unit 109 is the closest to the ocean of any unit at Wailua Bay View and therefore has the best views. Recline on the outdoor patio and enjoy a meal as you observe whales jumping just off the coast. We have been operating another VRBO listings at Wailua Bay View for the past 4 years.

About Luke Hofacker

Growing up in Canada, my family visited Hawaii every winter. My husband and I are fortunate to now live on the island of Oahu. Kauai is just a short trip for us and is our favorite of the Hawaiian islands to visit. We love the slower pace and opportunity to vacation close to home. We enjoy relaxing at the beach as well as hiking, scuba 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 2014

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 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.

Better than advertised, can’t beat view, clean, quiet, good central location.

  • 5 of 5

Can’t say enough good things about this condo. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights. Immediately greeted by the unobstructed ocean front view when you enter. The patio is very private, no walk out access but that means no one was constantly walking in front of our place. Extremely quiet, never heard others conversations or saw anyone else when on the patio, all you see are whales off the coast and hear ocean waves. Furnishings are very nice and comfortable. Bathroom is big, with nice furnishings/shower. Bedroom AC is great, cools room quickly and drowns out any noise as the bedroom is in the front of condo by walkways. But I’m a very light sleeper and never heard a sound. Beach chairs, coolers, towels, snorkel stuff and boogie boards all waiting for your use. Condo is within walking distance to several small beaches, one of which has a beach front bar, Lava Bar! Handful of restaurants, bakery, gas station all within few minutes walk. Grocery stores, shops and kayak/sup rentals within a short 1–3 mile drive. About halfway drive from north shore towns verse beaches to the south or Waimea Canyon on the west. Book this condo and enjoy Kaua’i!

Nice central location for seeing the whole island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there on November 15th for 4 nights. The unit itself is nicely remodeled and has all of the amenities that one would need. The view was great, sitting out on the private deck with our morning coffee was how we started every day. It is situated halfway between the resorts and beaches of Poipu to the south and the beaches and resorts of Princeville to the north. We had fun seeing the whole island and returning to this quiet area to stay. There are a lot of good restaurants in the area, but don't miss the Hukilau Lanai which is an easy walk from the condo. Our host Luke provided all the information that we needed.

Fantastic view, lovely spot .

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much even though it was only for a couple of nights before we changed locations to another area on the island. The unit is well appointed and provides everything you'll need. Great access to walking paths and the beach is great.

Wonderful property. Tastefully decorated - great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property - unit was steps from both the beach and the pool -- both were great. A/C in bedroom was much needed and appreciated. Nice kitchen - had everything you need. Made great use of the beach and snorkel equipment stored on the lanai. Comfortable bed and furniture. Only issue was the back sliding door was a bit sticky -- but manageable, and the slats on the front door would not open properly for good airflow. Made owner aware and I'm sure he will take care of these small issues as they have provided a great property at a great value.
