Walk into this oceanfront condo and enjoy the spectacular views of the ocean and coastline. This is the closest 1 bedroom to the ocean at beautiful Lae Nani. The living room opens to a spacious lanai and stunning views. The trade winds create a wonderful breeze throughout the condo. You are so close to the water that the waves will lull you to sleep. Watch whales (during winter months) and turtles from the property.

This oceanfront unit is conveniently located steps to the sand on the ground floor and is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping that is meticulously groomed. A short walk from your door is the Lae Nani swimming pool, outdoor barbecues, and tennis courts. You can lounge, play, take a refreshing dip, or grill your island favorites while taking in the gorgeous views.

Our central location on the Coconut Coast of Kauai's east side makes it easy to explore the entire island. Just steps outside the lanai is a sandy beach for all ages. Swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, snorkeling, kite surfing, and shore fishing can be enjoyed year round. The oceanfront Wailua Golf Course, rated one of the top municipal golf courses in the nation, is a few minutes drive away. Rent bikes in nearby Kapa'a and follow the foot/bike path that runs in front of the condo to the south and you will walk/bike along Wailua Beach and over Wailua River. Follow the path north through the Coconut Marketplace and you will arrive at quaint Kapa'a town. The path continues for miles and miles of scenic ocean views to the north. Explore Wailua River, take a boat ride up it to the Fern Grotto or kayak/canoe to the Secret Falls Trailhead. Opaeka's Falls is just a few miles away.

Our condo is perfectly situated within walking distance to restaurants (Hukilau, Monico's, Brick Oven Pizza, Kintaro's, Cafe Coco, Trees, etc), shopping, golf, incredible beaches, and the Wailua River.

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

The location of the condo was perfect for exploring the island by car. We were able to walk to a few places (farmers market, bakery, Mexican restaurant, Lydgate beach) but anything else was too far because of the heat during our stay. The ABC store was not yet open but this will be a great convenience for future guests as it is within spitting distance of the complex.

The grounds of the complex are well cared for and have plenty of mature plants and trees. The pool was clean, a very pleasant temperature and had plenty of chairs available. The guests on the resorts on both sides of the complex as well as the public can access the ocean in front of the unit but the pool is accessed by a key only. In the week we were there we seldom saw more than a handful of people using the pool. There were also 3 large gas grills available that appeared to be in good condition but we never used them. The beach has an area blocked off with lava stones that is advertised as a kiddie pool in the information about Kauai, but crowding did not appear to be a problem. The ocean was a bit intimidating as there is a small reef or rock area that creates a small river with a pretty strong current in front of the complex. This didn’t turn out to be an issue for us – we watched the tides and made sure to swim with a buddy. There are many great beaches on the island that are more suited to all ages but this was a great place to cool off and try out the boogie board. The tide does limit the amount of beach available for lounging but the grass is a great place to put your towels or mats and hang out too.

The pictures of the condo adequately portray the actual condo. The king bed was extremely comfortable. The close proximity of this unit to the other unit and sidewalk (within 5 feet) to the bedroom meant we had to close the windows several nights due to the noise of guests coming or going, or talking on their balconies. The 3 ceiling fans coupled with opening the windows created great airflow and kept the unit cool. The nights we had to close the windows did make the unit a bit stifling. The screen door needs to be replaced, as it doesn’t close fully and can’t be relied on for any type of security.

The kitchen had adequate dishes and supplies for the meals we did eat at the complex. The size of the couch and the placement make the breakfast bar area completely unusable. The unit could benefit from more washcloths and more than one dishcloth especial

Wonderful Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our first trip to Kauai. The property was clean and we felt right at home. The owner was very responsive and we were never nervous about the reservations. Lae Nani has a wonderful bay to swim and play and watch the tropical fish and turtles. It was also a great central location to explore the rest of the island. We loved this bottom floor unit with a bay view for sipping coffee in the morning and drinks in the evening. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and we fully intend to come back here again.

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was all it advertised and more. It was clean, convenient, well kept and close to stores, farmers' market and restaurants. It was so great to relax on the lanai and listen to the ocean. You could do walks from here, spend time on the beach and when the waves were big, there was a private cove, created by a halo of rocks making a private, shallow area of calm water to play in. The closet with "beach items" came in handy. And being on the first floor helped me since I have difficulty climbing stairs.

Thanks for sharing your condo with us. We respected your property and valued our time at your place. Thanks for allowing us to stay there.

Beautiful Lae Nani

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just spent another two weeks at beautiful Lae Nani condos. We were fortunate enough to rent a ground floor condo this time, less than 50 steps to the beach! The condo was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The kitchen was well-equipped for home cooking and entertaining guests which we did regularly. It was like being home (but much warmer and with a fabulous view!) The grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained and the gardeners will cut you flowers for a bouquet if you want. Lae Nani is a perfect location from which to explore the island of Kauai. You can easily head north to Princeville (stop at the Kilueia Bakery for lunch!) or south to Poipu or Waimea Canyon for day trips (Shrimp Truck in Koloa is awesome!). This time we chose to rent bicycles and try the bike path. It was a pleasant walk along the beachfront to Kapa'a where we were able to rent bikes for $15 each for the day. A great ride and no need to walk our bikes at any point. There are even some geocaches along the way if you're interested! We also discovered a great food truck (Three Girls Grill) in the Coconut Marketplace which is just a 5 minute walk away from the condo. They have a terrific teriyaki rice plate for $10 which will feed you for lunch AND dinner! We have already booked a stay at Lae Nani for next year but unfortunately missed booking #312! (we shouldn't have told other guests how perfect our place was-they booked it before we could!)

Beautiful Lae Nani

  • 5 of 5

A new condo for us on our fourth visit to Kauai and it was fabulous. We contacted Wendy when we discovered the parking pass was not there and she returned our call promptly with a solution. The condo was clean and comfortable with incredible views to the south! We love being on the ground floor just 50 steps to the beach! The kitchen was well-equipped. 2 full bathrooms was a bonus. Lae Nani is central to all destinations on the island. No sun in Wailua? Head south to Poipu-30 minute drive! Want to see big surf? Drive north to Hanalei! Stop at Kiluea Bakery for lunch on the way! Great day trips from this centrally located venue.. if you actually feel the need to leave! We also discovered a great food truck (3 Girls Grill) in the Coconut Marketplace which is a 3 minute walk away. A half hour walk along the beach will also take you to Kapa'a when you can rent bikes and tour along the stunning bike path. We observed humpbacks cavorting offshore and some very talented surfers! There are even a few geocaches along the bike path if that's your interest. While there, we tried to rebook the condo for next year but our dates were already snapped up by the tenants who were next door! We just may need to change our plans to get this condo for next year's vacation. Highly recommended!

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening and entry instructions were seamless. The condo itself was clean and the kitchen and beach equipment, well stocked. The location is prime both in the complex and on the island (central to everything, grocery stores are walkable and it is close to the bike path). We had a very small incident but the owner Steve, was very attentive and contacted us within minutes. We are looking at returning next year at the same time and hope we can get this same unit.
