ASTONISHING BARGAIN FOR THIS HOME AWAY FROM HOME-THE MAJESTIC PACIFIC OCEAN IS STEPS AWAY-YOU WILL HEAR THE SURF AND FEEL THE TRADE WINDS BLOWING THRU YOUR HAIR-COMPLETELY INSPIRING. THE WONDERFUL SOUND OF THE OCEAN AND THE SWEET SWEET SMELL OF THE SURROUNDING TROPICAL FLOWERS.....
Kaha Lani means 'heavenly place'. The Kaha Lani, located on Kauai's Eastern shore, it is 'THE MOST BEAUTIFUL REAL ESTATE IN THE WORLD'. 'YOU ABSOLUTELY WILL LOVE IT THERE'. 'ONE OF A KIND',' A SHANGRALA IN A VERY SPECIAL PLACE'.
As you approach the Kaha Lani you see the beautiful architecture. The Bali style structures (large pole and large eves) have a beautiful presence in their natural setting. Surrounded by tropical green and open space, the Kaha Lani is like no other on Kauai. This unique surrounding creates a quiet and peaceful setting- very tranquil. To the north of the Kaha Lani is Lydgate, an oceanfront State Park with (2) sheltered lagoons which have beautiful fish and ocean life. They are perfect for snorkeling and swimming. There are many picnic areas at Lydgate. This is a short walk from the Kaha Lani about (5-7)minutes or you can use the bike path. And next door to the south is Wailua Golf Course, rated one of the top municipal golf courses in the nation. This beautiful course is within walking distance and creates another natural buffer to the Kaha Lani.
Walking into our fully self contained 2nd floor end unit condominium, you will be in awe @ the spectacular breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, just a few steps in front of you, unspoiled. Our condo is one of the closest to the ocean, with incredible panoramas that encompass Waiula Bay to the North and as far South as one can see. The living room and dining room open to a spacious lanai where it is great to enjoy a stunning early morning sunrise, sound of the ocean, whales and dolphins (during winter months) while feeling gentle trade winds and having a morning cup of coffee or tea. One can take a meal in the dining area and be in awe with the beauty of the views as far north as Waiula Bay. The living room area is comfortable and good sized. It has a Murphy Bed for those that want to sleep a little closer to the ocean. With the patio doors ajar the sound of the waves and feeling the night trade winds will cradle you to sleep. The views here are spectacular. Just across the grass to the ocean, just a stones throw away, you will have miles of unspoiled beaches to walk on and enjoy.
The Kaha Lani is located on Kauai's Eastside coastline of the Coconut Coast and is centrally located. This location is perfect for exploring the island. Just a little further north of Lydgate State Park is Kamalani Playground and Kamalani Bridge, a great community-built playground for children. A world surfing spot 'Kitchens' is just south of the Kaha Lani; going north you find the world class waves at Tunnels Beach. You can walk miles of majestic unspoiled beaches from your condo and truly experience your home away from home.
While experiencing the tranquility of the Kaha Lani one is not to far from excellent restaurants like the Eastside Cafe in Kapaa, shopping, and many sites that offer everything from Yoga to Massage to outings. An example would be Wailua River, the Smith Family Luau, Coconut Marketplace, the quaint town of Kapa'a and many outdoor wonders to visit and unbelievable places to hike that have STUNNING Waterfalls and tropical fruit growing everywhere. The surrounding beaches are one of a kind, for windsurfing, surfing, snorkeling and diving. One could not be happier.
You are also able to enjoy a heated swimming pool, outdoor barbecues, both gas and charcoal, and tennis courts where you can play a good game. All of this conjoining with the ocean make this the Kaha Lani truly 'One of a Kind'- the epicenter for a wonderful experience. We invite you to share our 'Home away from Home' and bring back to your family and friends the tale of a lifetime.

We had a great stay at the condo. Everything was perfect! As far as the lay out of the condo it worked great for our stay. The master bedroom is off a little hall, which made it perfect for extra privacy. The beds were cozy and comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked. It was also a pleasant surprise to find that there was plenty of dishwasher soap, paper towels, TP and soap for the washing machine for our entire stay. The deck was our favorite part, to watch the sunrise every morning with a cup of coffee, then to lay out on the deck, to hear the sounds of the waves while reading a book. We didn't miss the air conditioning at all. When we were there the trade winds where blowing (sometime to hard) and it keep the condo very comfortable. We could tell how hard it is to maintain the condo with that salt water breeze, but you are doing a great job!
Lydgate park is about a quarter of a mile down a paved walking trail, easy walk. The park has a great lagoon for swimming and stocked with big colorful fish for snorkeling.
There is really nothing close to the condo for eating or dining. Everything is a very short drive 2-2.5 miles away. But the condo was so well stocked we just shopped at Costco and ate most of the time at home. Although we did eat at the Shrimp Station for yummy coconut shrimp.
It would have been nice to have in the condo a list from the owners recommending secret places to see and places to eat.
We had a great time and look forward to returning! Thanks for sharing your condo
Been there before, going again. I can't describe it any better than all of these other great reviews, so I will focus on what I think is important. Follow the rules! If you are told not to put the knives in the dishwasher, don't do it. It irks me to come back the next year and find a faded knife because it was run through the dishwasher. Please take care of this lovely place! Take your shoes off at the door! There aren't actually that many rules. Treat it like it's your own home. Please keep it nice, cuz' I'm going back! BTW, the cleaning lady is so sweet. You can bless her with your leftovers. Oh, and the Bull Shed is a great place to eat.
Our 12 day stay at 223 Kaha Lani was wonderful. This unit has pretty much all you need for your Kauai adventure: spectacular ocean view with balcony to enjoy it, very clean and comfortable living and sleeping areas, a well-equipped kitchen, ensuite laundry and beach equipment. Access to the beach and a walking path is right out front. The central location makes for easy access to any part of the island, and the variety of island info provided makes it easy to plan your stay. Gene and Bernadette are so easy to work with and were incredibly responsive to a couple of minor issues that arose during our stay. We wouldn't hesitate at all to return this this condo if we get back to Kauai.
No pictures or words can capture the feeling when you arrive at this condo, any stress you have will melt away as soon as you open the door. So relaxing and welcoming, fresh flowers on the table and soothing music playing. We appreciated the great detail that has been taken to maintain this spacious unit. Super comfy beds, even the murphy bed! Well stocked and tastefully remodeled kitchen and bathrooms. The complex itself has beautiful grounds and is very quiet, all you can hear is the crashing waves and singing birds. Barbecue close by, easy parking, good size pool, tennis courts, and rackets in the closet! We enjoyed breakfast every morning on the lanai with the most amazing view of the sunrise. 3 nice flat screen TV's that we never turned on, beach chairs, towels, everything you need. Location on the island is perfect, quick drive from airport and Costco, many activities and shopping close by and easy commute to north or south areas of the island. Owner is super attentive, flexible and provided many great recommendations for food, hikes and activities. You can't go wrong with this place, we will definitely try to return! Best family vacation we have ever had! Aloha!
Such a wonderful place to stay, everything you'd need. It's also a nice complex with a sweet little pool. Thanks for making this our home away from home!! We'll definitely be back!
My family and I stayed in this condo from April 30 to May 5 this year. It is located close to the airport, clean, updated, well-furnished, and located close to the beach and Lydgate Beach Park. When we arrived, the mobile fan in our room didn't work, the screens on the bedroom window were loose, and there was a heavy build-up of corrosion on the hinges of the windows. I sent and email to the owner about these things and he was more responsive than I expected. He emailed me and called my phone to leave a message to be sure I knew he was on top of the situation. He also called the condo landline to reach me. Once we spoke, he called the next day to follow up to be sure these things were ameliorated.
The security on the grounds was friendly and courteous. The access to the beach and the concrete trail that leads to Lydgate Beach Park is right behind the condo. The pool was clean and well-maintained as are the grills located in the resort grounds. The owner's on-island representative is also very friendly and helpful. She purchased a new fan for our bedroom, delivered it to the condo, and assembled it for us. In addition, she offered us a late check-out to extend more courtesy in response to our initial observations of the items I listed in this review.
I would recommend this property and I would stay here again upon visiting Kauai again. It's beautiful, comfortable, and the owner truly cares about the pleasure of his guests.
