About the property

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.

About Shelley Carlson

Per New Hawaii Law, our Tax ID# is W27615947-01.

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.

Amazing sunrise views!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.

Beautiful until we tried sleeping at 79 degrees

  • 4 of 5

The view and beach were as advertized--wonderful.

BUT there is no air conditioning, there was no way to print a boarding pass for our flight home, there are no light blocking curtains in the bedroom, the roosters crow (in the dark, as early as 3:30AM), we paid (2) $200 damage/cleaning deposits.

We followed all instructions carefully and won't decide if we will recommend 226 to anyone else until we get the deposits back.

Owner's Response: VRBO handles all of the deposits. These funds never hit our personal account but are held by VRBO until check out. I do not know why there were 2 deposits requested unless the reservation booking was glitched and done in 2 phases and or if there was an extension. I do not know but as soon as this was brought to my attention I contacted VRBO and the credit was set to hit your account within 1 - 14 days as relayed to you on several occasions. Regarding air conditioning, I know of only 2 other units in our entire complex that have AC and they are full time residence. AC is not common in Kauai. Regarding the rooster, well, there are roosters all over the island and our management does their best to keep them at bay but as is in most tropical settings, roosters roam where they roam. I am sorry that the roosters and deposit glitch seemed to ruin your vacation. Thankfully we have wonderful reviews and our guests have very much enjoyed their time in our home, many of them repeats.

Best View!

  • 5 of 5

This unit definitely has the best view you could ask for! Everything inside was convenient, clean, and comfortable. The only problem we had was - with all this to enjoy, it was hard to get motivated to leave the lanai & go somewhere else! We would definitely stay here again.

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.
