Kaha Lani means “Heavenly Place,” and that certainly is true! Located on the famous Royal Coconut Coast of Kauai, Kaha Lani is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, Lydgate Park, and the Wailua Municipal Golf Course. This must be Paradise!

But Wait! There’s More!

If you’re like most people, “Reviews” are one of the most important things to check before renting a vacation home. We sure do! Reviews are earned. They’re a gauge of customer satisfaction—not just with the accommodations, but also with the customer service they received from the owners and their agents. We’re the new owners of Kaha Lani 211, a successful vacation rental. VRBO/HomeAway requires new owners to start with no reviews. From Day 1, we’ve been working hard to earn great reviews. And they're starting to mount up! Read through them first. Then book your vacation with us. We're confident you'll agree that Kaha Lani 211 truly is a place in heaven!

The Kaha Lani is a small, quiet complex just 5 miles from the Lihue Airport, and less than 2.5 miles from Kapaa. Staying at the Kaha Lani will put you within easy driving distance of everything on our beautiful island.

The Kaha Lani is off the highway, surrounded by Lydgate Park. Make sure to take advantage of the amenities at Lydgate. There’s a protected swimming and snorkeling lagoon, a lifeguard on duty, and picnic areas. The Ke Ala Hele Makalae (“Path That Goes By the Coast”), which extends for miles in both directions, is the only thing separating the Kaha Lani from the beach in front of the complex. This beach is great for sunbathing or watching for whales, but the ocean is not good for swimming here. Follow the path a short distance to Lydgate if you would like to swim in the ocean.

Our condo is a second-floor end unit. The ocean side of the condo is almost all windows, with a sliding glass door to a large lanai. From there, take advantage of the beautiful views, ocean breezes, and comfortable furniture (You'll love our zero gravity chairs!) as you relax with a cold beverage, or a scrumptious meal.

Inside, relax on the sofa. Use the free wireless to surf the Internet. Watch the new flat screen television, or pop in a DVD. Play a CD, or use the Ipod dock to listen to your own playlist. Or just kick back and read one of the paperback books in one of the drawers of the cabinet in the dining room.

The bedroom has its own bathroom with a massaging showerhead over the tub and Martha Stewart Quick Dry towels. The half bath is just steps from the living room. They both have Silestone counters and new fixtures. The bedroom contains a queen-sized bed with a memory foam topper and soft-as-silk bamboo sheets. The living room has a queen-sized sofa sleeper with a memory foam mattress.

While you have a great view of the ocean from the lanai, you are only steps away from the beach. In the winter, take the beach chairs down to watch the whales breaching, or just watch them from the lanai. And any time of the year, watch beautiful sunrises from either location!

The kitchen has cherry cabinets and granite countertops. We bought all new stainless steel appliances, and have stocked the kitchen with all the things we have found our guests might need. All the cooking utensils, dishes, and small appliances are already there. Brew your morning coffee with a drip coffee maker, or use the Keurig. We provide some starter K-cups, or bring your favorite flavors from home. Fix some of your meals in our fully stocked kitchen, and enjoy them inside in the dining area, or take them out on the lanai. There are also barbecues located nearby in the pool area that you can use.

We always hated checking multiple bags at the airport, just to make sure we had everything we thought we might need to have a fulfilling vacation. It's much more relaxing to just bring a carryon bag with a few shirts, shorts, and swimwear. The complex laundry room is nearby, and we provide the detergent, and enough quarters to pay for the first few loads.

We'll save you a ton of money on renting stuff. We have boogie boards, a collapsing ice chest, snorkel gear, tennis gear, beach chairs, beach towels, a beach umbrella, and much more. If you don't see everything you'll need on our amenities list, let us know. Maybe we'll add it before your arrival!

The Kaha Lani is right next to the Wailua Golf Course, recognized as one of the best municipal courses in the nation! There are also several other fine courses on the island. If you're a serious golfer, your own clubs probably help you play better. If you don't want to bring your own clubs, we have two sets available for you to use. They aren't state-of-the-art clubs, but they're not bad. With my 25+ handicap, I could probably score as well with a stick and a rock! That’s why I always say, “Good weather, good company, and occasionally, a chance to putt for par in paradise! What more can you ask for?” If you need someone to be your guide on one of the courses, give me a call. I’m on the island more than half the year. If I'm on island, I can join you for a round to point out the hidden hazards--because I’ve been in all of them! Just don’t expect any advice on your golf game. And if I offer advice, don’t take it!

This may be the vacation of a lifetime for you, or just another trip to paradise. In our many visits before achieving our goal of owning a piece of Kauai, we've learned how to squeeze the most out of a nickel. The best part of coming to Kauai is enjoying God's creation. You can spend a lot to enjoy it once, or we can give you some tips on stretching your budget so you can come back more often. Let us know which type of trip you want, and we'll help you achieve it! We’ve packed a ton of tips in our Condo Book. Make sure to check it out.

State of Hawaii Transient Accommodations Tax Certificate of Registration is on display in the unit.

About Dan Roton

While visiting Kauai in 1999 to celebrate our 25th anniversary, we said, 'Wouldn't it be great if someday, when we retire, we could live half of the time in Hawaii, and the other half on the coast of California?' That set the plan into motion. After 20+ visits to the 4 largest islands, it became obvious that Kauai was our favorite. When I retired, after teaching high school business for 32 years, we started to move forward with the plan. Having already purchase a weekend home on the coast of our home state, we searched for, and purchased the right property on Kauai. When my wife retired in March of 2014, after a long and fulfilling career as a community college academic counselor, we made Kauai our home and are realizing our dream!

Why Dan Roton chose Lihue-Kalapaki

After living on Kauai for a year and a half, the time was right to exchange a rental we owned on the mainland for another condo on Kauai. We had a short, but important, "must have" list. Our new place had to feel like a home, not a hotel. It had to be someplace we would be comfortable living, if we decide to do that in the future. It had to have an ocean view. It had to have a shaded lanai for afternoon lounging. It had to have a pool. It had to have close access to a beach. It didn't have to have a golf course next door, but for me (my wife thinks golf is dumb), it was an incredible bonus!

What makes this condo unique

Nowhere on Kauai will you find a property with the benefits of the Kaha Lani. It's just 5 miles from the airport, but not all the way into Kapaa, which can be a traffic headache during rush hours. Kaha Lani has been described as a hidden gem, because it's a good distance from the highway, and surrounded by a great park and a golf course. However, it's only a few miles from the convenience of Lihue shopping (Costco, Safeway, Kmart, Walmart, Macy's, Ross, etc.), and the quaint shops of Kapaa.

Kaha Lani such a lovely place

  • 4 of 5

Clean wonderful relaxing place to use as an excellent springboard from Lihue to Kauai's charm and splendor. Close to everything you need and just about anything you might dream of. Nice pool for the kids and adults too. BBQ was clean and I made some killer burgers.

Amazing place with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Dan's place! The location was an amazing home base for us as we explored the island. The house is stocked with kitchen goods, beach necessities, and really anything you could think to need. The ocean view from the lanai was our favorite part - and you can walk to the beach which felt like our own private oasis! If we ever get to come back - we would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! We're glad you were able to enjoy our location. Our favorite part is also the view from the lanai. We love that it catches the morning sun, but is shady with a nice breeze in the afternoon. It's a perfect place to sit and relax after a busy day of exploring--gazing out at the ocean and listening to the waves. We look forward to your return in the not-to-distant future!

A big WOW for this property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect in every way. Dan is very attentive to explain all the questions that may arise before the stay. In the property, the caretakers are very receptive and friendly people. The condo is beautiful, exactly - and even more beautiful, I would say - like the photos. Fully equipped with everything you could need. The parking is very convenient too. I strongly recommend this condo to everyone who want to relax, surrounded by a beautiful architecture and cinematic ocean view.

Lovely Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Kaha Lani 211 was everything we could have hoped for and expected and more !! It has absolutely everything, including barbeques for the nights we didn't want to venture anywhere.

So quiet and tranquil, just the sound of the waves (which we love) and the cheerful roosters in the morning. The little geckos that visited us on our lanai were so cute, as were the pretty birds.

The ocean is so close, and the beach stretches forever.

A true paradise spot, and our only regret is that we wish we could have stayed longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We're spending a few night at the condo right now. The pretty birds have come by to visit. They said to say, "Hi!" We hope the only regret our guests ever have is the one you mentioned, ". . . we wish we could have stayed longer." Maybe next time, you can! We look forward to your return.

Great spot, lots of room and good view of the Pacific

  • 5 of 5

Centrally located just south of Kapa'a and about a 10 minute drive from the airport in Lihue. Ocean breeze obviates need for air conditioning. Owner provides a number of amenities for guests to use during their stay. Ocean-front Trail on the edge of the property for biking, walking, etc. Great pool and lounge chairs for those days you feel lazy or want a quick cool down. Centrally located on the perimeter highway (no interstate here!) for access to the north or south parts of the island although driving the seemingly short distances is a slow process! But you are on "island time", enjoy and chill, brother!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We agree with your comment about AC. Who needs it when the condo is air conditioned by God! The trade winds are a blessing! The traffic can be slow through Kapaa. The rest of the island is not too bad. You just have to kick into "island mode," and realize you aren't going to get there any sooner than the guy in front of you. Like you said, "Chill!" We look forward to your return.

The Path (Ke Ala Hele Makalae) is ranked as one of the best things to do while on Kauai. The Path goes for miles in both directions from the resort. It's paved, which makes it perfect for biking, walking, running, or rollerblading. Take a stroll or rent a bike in Kapaa to explore the beauty of the Royal Coconut Coast. It's the perfect place to watch the sunrise.

Kaha Lani is near the Wailua River, the only navigable river in the state. Enjoy a boat tour to the famous Fern Grotto, or rent a kayak and leisurely paddle yourself. A personal note: If you rent a kayak for two, make your wife sit in front! That way you can make sure she is paddling!

One of the best luaus on the island is Smith Tropical Paradise Luau, held on the shores of the Wailua River. Or take a drive up to Wailua Falls, which was featured in the opening scenes of the television show, "Fantasy Island." Opaekaa Falls is also nearby, and amazing.

If you're a golfer, the Wailua course was voted by Golf Digest as one of Hawaii’s best 15 golf courses. Also rated #3 course in Hawaii by The Golf Channel. Don't let the view from the highway fool you. There are some beautiful holes along the ocean and the greens are in fantastic shape. Bring your own clubs, rent them at the course, or use one of the sets we provide. They're not new, but they serve the purpose.

If you just want to catch some rays on the sand and watch the surf, or build a sand castle, the beach in front of the resort is perfect. Because of the reef, it isn't a safe place to swim. Instead, walk next door to Lydgate Park. There's a lifeguard on duty, sheltered swimming and snorkeling areas, and picnic areas.

There are too many fantastic and beautiful things to do and see on our piece of paradise to mention here. Let me know what activities you're interested in. I'll do my best to help make your vacation one you'll never forget!
