Condo With An Unobstructed View Of The Entire East Shore.
In Hawaiian, 'Kaha Lani' means heavenly place. And that's what you'll find at this Kauai Condo. This Bali inspired Resort is breath taking. Coconut palms rustling in the gentle trade winds. You can stroll along miles of uncrowded white sand beach, lush tropical landscaping, and sometimes without seeing another person. Come & enjoy the quiet privacy of this intimate condominium on beautiful Kauai's Royal Coconut Coast. Sun yourself by the swimming pool or explore the sandy shoreline; just steps away. Our condo has everything you can possibly think of and more, that will make your stay with us perfect. Parking is free and there are no resort fees. Every condo is a non-smoking unit.
With recent renovations, this specific unit is immaculate. It is complete with new hardwood flooring, new kitchen cabinets granite countertops and new hardware, new bedding, new doors and windows, new appliances as well, granite in both bathrooms, upgraded hardware and accessories, this unit looks and feels like a brand new unit.
Kaha Lani Resort is centrally located so you are close to all the famous Kauai sights, yet you feel away from everything the moment you drive into the spacious, tropical resort. Positioned between the Wailua Golf Course and Lydgate Beach Park, the resort is very private. You aren't surrounded by other resorts fighting for a spot on the beach, yet you are a short drive from all the activities. The Wailua River is one mile north of the condo. This is where you can launch off in a kayak to visit Secret Falls or take a river cruise to the Fern Grotto. Right on the shores of the Wailua River sits the Coco Palms Resort that Elvis Presley made famous in the film Blue Hawaii. The hurricane Iniki shut the resort down in 1992, but it is still nice to drive past and imagine what it was like in 1961 when the movie was filmed. The Wailua Waterfall, also shown in the film, is a short drive up the nearby country road. It can be viewed from the road and is a great place to take photos. A few adventurous travelers even hike to the bottom of the falls and swim in the fresh water pool. If you like to hike, The Sleeping Giant Mountain with it's famous Hiking trails is not far either. Opoeka'a Falls is about 3 miles from the condo. You can view it from the road. Depending on the recent rainfall it may have one, two or even three falls coming over the side. The quaint town of Kapa'a is a few miles North of the condo. This is a great place to stroll for hours checking out the many shops and restaurants.
The Kaha Lani is completely surrounded by open space which creates a quiet and peaceful setting. The oceanfront Wailua Golf Course, rated one of the top municipal golf courses in the nation, is next door to the south and within easy walking distance. Just steps across the lawn from our condo are miles of beautiful uncrowded beaches.
Follow the foot path south of the Kaha Lani and you will arrive at the Kamalani Playground and Kamalani Bridge, a great community-built playground for children, which even has its own lava tube!
Activities abound in this excellent central location. The Smith Family Luau, the most popular luau on the island, is almost across the street. The Wailua River is 1 minute away. Take a boat ride up it to the Fern Grotto or canoe up the Wailua to the Secret Falls trailhead. Opaeka'a Falls is minutes away. Or rent bikes in Kapa'a and ride along the ocean. There is a tennis court and putting green on the property.
With the Beach and ocean to the east, a golf course to the south, and a park to the north and west, Kaha Lani is very private and secluded. Unless they get off the highway and drive a mile most people don't even know Kaha Lani exists. It is truly a Hidden Jewel, that you will want to return to year after year.

Shelley Carlson purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Shelley Carlson chose Līhuʻe
From the minute we walked into this condo, it took our breath away. The unobstructed view of the ocean, and the concrete path just outside that winds through the Lydgate National Park, the undeveloped white sand beach, and not to mention the Sunrise on that beach! After that, no other property or condo could compete.
What makes this Condo unique
This unit is on the end of the building, with a view that is extremely gorgeous, a bit more peaceful, designed with comfort in mind, and most importantly relaxation. We have installed flat screen televisions, DVD Players, as well as a fully stocked kitchen that a chef would enjoy. With our recent remodel, the place is absolutely amazing.

GREAT location for family with kids
The view, unit and parks within walking distance are outstanding. Both the play bridge and the playground (opposite sides of walkways) were well enjoyed by our young boys. The waterfalls nearby are great. I love how uncrowded the complex is, and the pool was comfortable with plenty of open seating we appreciated the extra beach towels, sunscreens, bug spray, tea, and other sundries left behind for our use. I would stay again in a heartbeat.
Only four minor concerns. The second bathroom fan makes a terrible noise for the first minutes it operates. One of the window’s handles is not attached to the open mechanism. There was no dish detergent left behind for the dishwasher so we purchased a bag and are leaving it behind. Lastly, the checkout time online says 11:00 am meanwhile the in-unit checkout says 10:00am. The latter note is a bit of a concern.
Mahalo for a comfortable, convenient, and relaxing getaway!
The condo does not accommodate more than two for sleeping
We stayed in Kaua’i last year and it was wonderful, sunny every day and our condo in Princeville was fabulous. So we decided to come back again however we chose east coast to stay. The weather wasn’t that great the first four days with constant rain but the worst part had to do with sleeping conditions in the condo. It is advertised with 1 bedroom but stated 4 people can sleep and we assumed there would be a bedroom and a sofa bed as it had always been the case every time we travelled. It didn’t turn out to be the case and we learned that night that there was no sofa bed and I ended up sleeping on the couch that night. When asked the owner about extra bedding she pointed out to use the old style air plastic mattress they had stored in the condo along with a plastic case sheet!!
I don’t think anyone can sleep on a noisy plastic air mattress in this warm humid climate 10 nights and get away without a broken back. The owner did not provide an alternative bedding and I ended up sleeping separate from my wife the entire trip as I couldn’t bear putting my son on that bed.
The view from the condo was amazing, the utensils and kitchen ware definitely could use an upgrade. Read the other reviews, they mostly reflect the truth. No one complained about the bed as most of the renters been parties of two only. No one mentioned kids in their review but the owner was adament that no one had complained about it
Good value for the money
First the positive aspects of the condo. Very good location on the beach with a great view from the lanai. Second floor location is great because one feels safe leaving the patio doors open. The condo is clean with reasonable quality furniture for a rental unit.
I can however suggest that the pots, pans and glassware all need to be replaced. The pots and pans are scratched and appear to be old. The glassware is cloudy, not sure why, and appears to be dirty even though they are clean. A prior review also stated this one negative area of the condo.

Amazing sunrise views!
We loved our stay at the resort and especially in this unit. The water views are amazing and sunrise was my favorite time of day because you get a perfect view from the patio. We also saw whales on multiple mornings.
The complex itself had some power issues and we lost power 2 of the evenings but they fixed the transformer and we never had another issue. I found the office staff and local owner's support staff very helpful and accommodating.
I highly recommend this property to others!
Beautiful condo, great view, good location
Enjoyed our six-day stay at Shelley's apartment. Comfy bed, well supplied kitchen, pleasant deck. Grounds were always quiet, despite the roosters, and private. Coin-operatd laundry facilities near the pool area. Especially liked location surrounded by Lydgate Park -- a ten minute walk along a paved seaside path brings you to a lifeguarded beach with swimming and snorkeling sheltered by jetties, and changing rooms with showers. Pool at condo was nice too, but December air was too cool to enjoy it much. Two supermarkets, shops, and restaurants are just a few miles up the road, but expect traffic jams (really? on Kauai? yes) any time of day.
Everything about this unit's location is perfect. At the ocean's edge, nestled in between the Pacific Ocean, Lydgate state Park, and the award-winning ocean front Wailua Golf Course, as well as in between world renowned beaches for surfing, 'Kitchens' is just south, and Tunnels Beach is just north, not to mention the miles of majestic unspoiled and undeveloped beaches to enjoy.
