We are located on the top floor in a corner end unit, which affords ultimate privacy. Panoramic ocean views are available from the living room, dining room, kitchen and lanai.

Complete renovation finished Sept. 2013. Living room and dining room accented with bamboo crown molding and tiger wood floors. Kitchen and entry floors have inlayed travertine borders on porcelain. The kitchen is equipped with brand new stainless steel appliances including refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher and stove. Also includes new stainless steel cookware, coffee maker, french press and electric kettle. The counters are finished in magma granite.

Master bedroom is carpeted with premium carpet. It is appointed with a king bed and new 14' memory foam mattress and fine linens. The queen size sleeper sofa is equipped with a plush bed mattress (5 star on amazon). All interior doors are solid teak, plantation style.

State of the art wireless high speed internet enables streaming of Netflix movies without buffering. 2.1 sound bar in living room also allows you to stream music from your bluetooth device. Also available is a Bose sounddock 10 in the bedroom.

The lanai is furnished with a bar height table that seats four. This allows for an unobstructed view over the railing. We have also provided a large cushioned chair and ottoman which is perfect for relaxing and reading or just enjoying the magnificent surroundings.

The sandy beach allows easy access for swimming, boogeyboarding, or just floating in the warm waters of the Pacific. Most often safe but can be dangerous when surf is large. The 'keiki pool' (children's pool) is surrounded by lava rock to create a shallow natural pool with a sand bottom., a safer spot for the little one.

This unit is walking distance, on the beach path, to the famous Hukilau Lanai restaurant. It is also a short walk to the Coconut Marketplace which offers eateries, galleries, boutiques and a convenience store.

Some onsite conveniences are coin-operated laundry and gas operated barbecues. Lighted tennis courts and heated pool. These amenities are all exceptionally well maintained. The grounds are immaculate and lush with many local varieties of flowers and plants. Kauai is truly the 'Garden Isle'.

Lae Nani is centrally located on the east shore just a 30 minute drive to the north shore, Princeville and Hanalei Bay. Poipu beach is 30 minutes to the south.

Hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, surfing and Golfing areas are abundant. Waterskiing and wakeboarding are also available on nearby Wailua River.

Please be aware that there is no elevator.

Mahalo for visiting our site! We look forward to hearing from you.

About Stephen Childers

We have been coming to Kauai for the last 30 years, the same number of years we have been married. We are both native Californians, living in north Monterey. As a surfer of 50 years, I have to admit that most of our trips were surf trips. There remains many places left on Kauai for us to discover.

Stephen Childers purchased this Condo in 2013

Why Stephen Childers chose Wailua

We were looking a properties in Poipu and Princeville for some time as that is where most of our friends live. But upon seeing the listing photo of this property(the bay view from lanai) we immediately made an offer and purchased it. We have been on island many times and stayed at quite a few places, but we like Lae Nani the best. It's not just the spectacular views or the beautiful grounds but also the serenity of the location. The Heiau (ancient Hawaiian Ruins) on the point in front, the sound of the surf thoughout the day and night is just magical. Also, everything you need is nearby.

                                                                  Fantastic experience at Lae Nani 231 - Kauai!

                                                                  George M.

                                                                  Everything was a good as advertised!

                                                                  This was our first visit to Kauai and we appreciated the central location between the North and South venues and attractions. Less than an hour to the extremes of both directions.

                                                                  We will definitely be back, and likely target this location again!

                                                                  Thanks, Steven, for your attention to detail in creating such a great venue.

                                                                  Really nice condo

                                                                  Nicholas W.

                                                                  Pros-property is centrally located on island, condo unit is nicely outfitted and we enjoyed the oceanfront views. Grounds are well maintained. Recommend this unit.

                                                                  Cons- it's a minor thing but one of the toilets leaked then got fixed 4 days into our stay. Also had bad luck because exterior of our particular building was being prepped and painted during entire 11 day stay. So scaffolding, ladders and power tools in stairwells, doorway, windows , etc... so not quiet or relaxing during daytime hours although we were not around much during the day. It looks like this is one of the last buildings to be painted on property!

                                                                  AWESOME VIEW

                                                                  The two week experience was awesome. The view, the pool, the bed mattress. Everything was perfect. Due to severe allergies we often ate in the condo. There was nothing we were lacking to prepare some spectacular dinners, taking advantage of the BBQ, etc.

                                                                  Breakfast on the lanai on the morning.....nothing better !

                                                                  Highly recommend, knowing you will not be disappointed
