Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Lae Nani is the perfect location for getting to all areas of the island. There are plenty of restaurants and stores close by. The condo had everything we needed for our stay. It was nice to have beach chairs and a small cooler for day trips. We had an issue with the kitchen drain and the property management company took care of the problem. The grounds are beautiful and the sound of the ocean was perfect. We look forward to returning.

The property itself and the location were very good - easy to reach from the airport. Easy access to a small beach, some bbqs and a pool. And the view was perfect. Clean and maintained well enough given age. Kitchen appliances all working and modern. Consumables supplied which was a nice touch. A small selection of beach toys were available, and there was ample towels. Within walking distance to Kayak tours, beaches, shops, bars, cafes, etc. Car park usually had space, though this could sometimes be contentious. Internet and TV worked well. Listing mentions no aircon, but didn't find this to be an issue. Decent bed and pillows. Comfortable property overall. Booking and check in was a little fraught, with a light tenancy agreement, a deposit, and codes not supplied until the host was reminded. Main shower not working, which given the additional ensuite showerhead is about 5ft from the ground, wasn't ideal. Found it odd that the host would not know about this prior to our arrival given the cleaners would have presumably had cause to use it. Bedroom noise is frequent in the morning with no way to block it off due to the window type - recommend ear plugs. But overall, was a very nice place to stay, and somewhere we'd be grateful to come back to after a day out exploring.

The location was excellent. We liked being able to walk to a variety of restaurants in the area. The beach in front of the hotel was a lovely place to hang out, swim and snorkel. It was a really nice touch that there was all the beach gear for us to use! The condo was very spacious and comfortable, lots of space for 2 people. Previous reviews mentioned the lack of kitchen supplies, but it seems like they've outfitted the kitchen since then--no problems there. My only one complaint would be the towels and pillow cases. I know I have a sensitive nose for this, and I may be the only one who notices, but the towels and pillow cases had that smell of when things don't dry out. I know it's difficult with the humid weather. In my experience, you can't get that smell out of a towel once it's in there. It may be good to use a product that gets out protein like Oxiclean, because I could also smell the funk of previous guests on the towels/pillow cases.

This lovation was perfect! The beach on the property was great to hang out and swim. It's in walking distance to some shops and restaurants. The lanai overlooking the water was a great place to hang out as well! Truly enjoyed our time here!

This is our second trip to Kapa a, but first at Lae Nani. The property was a bit dated but clean, great location, comfortable king bed, perfectly located between the north, south, and west side. Local shops made shopping a breeze. This one bedroom was perfect for the two of us. Lord willing, we will be back.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Excellent location for exploring Kauai. This condo is located close to restaurants and stores. Though the area is a populated one, the condo is situated in an oceanfront area and protected from traffic noise. The condo has a well-equipped kitchen for preparing meals and a comfortable lanai, with a beautiful ocean view for enjoying those meals. Also, and much appreciated were the beach chairs, cooler for packing lunches, and beach umbrellas that the owner provided. We hope to return to Kauai another time and will definitely be returning to Lae Nani.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We loved Lae Nani. The property is perfectly located in Kapaa for exploring all regions of Kauai. The grounds are spectacular and meticulously maintained. While we understand the owners may not be interested in fully upgrading the place (it does have a cool 70's vibe), performing some maintenance would be nice (peeling and dirty paint, cracked caulking, rusted fixtures). However we had everything we wanted/needed for our stay. SUPER nice having beach chairs, mats, umbrella, towels. Thank you!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We rented this 1BR for our niece and her husband while we were in another unit in the same complex. Our niece told us it was very nice, and from what I saw of it, had a well equipped kitchen, nice large MBR, and a good ocean view from the lanai. Two minor issues are the cipher door lock sometimes took four tries to get it open; the other issue was the description said there was a washer and dryer in the unit - there isn’t. Fortunately, our unit had them, so they did laundry there. The management company, KBR, refunded a portion of the rental price, which was nice of them. They’ve always been professional and courteous over the many years we’ve dealt with them. The complex pool is very nice, heated, but no slide for kids. There is some pool deck repair going on, but it didn’t affect pool use. There is a beach and a small protected area for little ones to get into calm ocean water or play in the sand. The location is convenient to Lydgate Park, which also has protected swim areas, near a really good bakery, a shopping center, and just a few miles from the airport, Lihue, and about a half hour from Poipu, an hour from Hanipepe. Another minor issue is that the car gate, pedestrian gate, swimming pool gate, as well as unit doors, all have cipher locks.

Overall the stay was pleasant. The grounds and location of this condo are perfect. Condo is very dated and would definitely benefit from some updating. However, for the price and location is provided the service we were looking for.

We woke up every morning listening to the crash of the waves. The property has a small beach, but a 1000 sq ft area blocked by boulders 2 ft deep to allow small kids to swim and wade in the ocean safely. Will stay here again based on the central location on the island and view from the deck.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We loved staying in this unit, the view and the grounds are beautiful. The bathroom needs an upgrade, the faucet and showerhead are very old and the bathroom shower kept running out of hot water. Management company wasn't very helpful about it, but eventually they sent someone out. Regardless of the shower/hot water issue, we loved staying here, wonderful spot.

The grounds are well maintained and lovely. It’s nice to have access to the beach and a pool. We’ve been staying at Lae Nani for many years. Unfortunately I wouldn’t recommend this unit. The furniture was badly worn, the kitchen hasn’t been updated, the few pots and pans made cooking difficult., the TV barely worked and the bathrooms are in dire need of updating. We stayed in this unit because it was available during the time we needed to be here. But, I wouldn’t rent it again.

We recommend both shower and tub and kitchen counters need cleaned and redone. The pool deck is hot to the feet and cracked and pealing paint and cement cracks!

The view from our balcony was amazing; well maintained grounds, beautiful landscaping and a beach just beyond the manicured lawns. The property is close to shops, and there’s a coastal trail for walking/cycling. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was functional but could use some upgrades if you want to prepare meals on a regular basis. We plan to book the unit again in the future.

I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We really like the location. The grounds are spectacular. I felt like I needed a book of Kauai flowers because there are so many different flowers in the complex. We felt very safe. The swimming and snorkeling right out the door even with waves was a pleasant surprise. The condo has a nice view, has everything you need, everything worked, everything is very dated. The second bathroom shower is creepy. Maybe pick a different condo in same complex, I did read reviews of another condo that were pretty bad.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Stayed in Lae Nani unit 424 one week in November. East Shore and Wailua was a good base for visiting the entire island. Easy drive from airport, plenty of stuff to do right in Wailua and close-by and nice day drives to North and South Shores including Waimea Canyon. The property is well located with many restaurants within walking distance, close by grocery with deli and full Safeway just down the road. The grounds on the property are very nice and the beach location is good with both protected waters and some wave action. The pool is large, and not crowded and was warm. The unit is up one flight of stairs and has large, covered entrance area so sandy shoes and beach stuff can be left outside. 424 looks out over the beautiful grounds and to the beach and ocean view. The lanai was great, and we had candlelight dinner out there most nights since the ambiance from there was better than almost any restaurant. Although recommend the Lava Lave Club for the first night which is next door and easy walk around via beach for ‘beach’ dining. The unit itself was nice and had coffee and filters to get you started next morning. The unit was clean and well equipped with all kitchen stuff you should need while on vacation, beach towels, beach chairs and floats, coolers. The showers could use some updating and some maintenance items need taken care but no big deal on any of that. The layout is good and the two bathrooms were great to have. The beds were comfortable, and the lack of AC was not a big deal, at least in November. Would have been nice to have W/D in unit but they are available within a100 feet or so from unit. There is an outdoor grill within a100 feet or so from unit that made grilling easy. The management company was easy to work with and did a good job communicating with us directly and via app. They had welcome packet with all the unit and gate codes ready for us to pick-up on stop a short distance from airport on way to Wailua for contactless check-in.

The view from our unit was right off a postcard. A small beach was 100 yards in front of us that allowed me to get into the water each day. Grounds were beautifully maintained. A walking trail along the ocean front let us walk 2-3 miles every morning. Our unit was quiet, clean and comfortable. We were convenient to groceries, shopping at the Coconut Marketplace, shave ice and Thai food.

The property is very pretty and one of the best we saw in Kapaa. The unit is clean and well maintained. The only down side that furniture and finishes are tired and need updating. The dishwasher was broken and on order for replacement.

We absolutely loved our stay here. They ocean view from the room is hard to beat, as is the comfort of the unit and complex. We had absolutely everything we needed to cook, go to the beach, and so on, and the walkable proximity to restaurants was fantastic. The management company was accessible, communicative and accommodating. We hope to be back soon.

The condo was simple and well-equipped, and the ocean view is lovely. The grounds at Lae Nani are gorgeous and the heated salt water pool was a welcome bonus during the winter season, when most of the beaches aren't suitable for swimming because the surf is too high. We appreciated the quiet, as well as the ability to pop next door for beachside cocktails at the Lava Lava club. We especially delighted in the nightly mesermizing tiki torches. We would definitely return again.

The experience was amazing. Grounds wonderful. Surrounding area great. Our unit could use a little upgrading but the view from our unit spectacular. We would definitely do it all again right there at Lae Nani. I highly recommend the condo facilities.
