Is it time for you to leave the hustle bustle of your life and enter into your own paradise? That is what our condo offers you. Centrally located along the coconut coast of Kauai, surrounded by lush topical landscaping and exhilarating view of the ocean with a short walk to the beach or heated pool, paradise can be yours. Sit on our beautiful lanai and watch the Hawaiian sunset as not experienced anywhere else! Once in a while, you'll see a local visitor; a giant green turtle or a monk seal resting and sunning on the beach in-front of our place in paradise. You can even catch your own meal by fishing, off the beach (please note, all the beach in the State of Hawaii is public). However, if you like to go deep sea fishing, we know the captain of a great charter-our guests loves and enjoy eating their catches. Enjoy a sun rise round of golf nearby along the shore, and be back for lunch and a swim in our heated pool. You could also spend some time at our tennis court, or barbeque (3) next to the pool with a cocktail in your hand and watch the sun set.
Our condo is located at the best spot in paradise, even the ancient Hawaiians selected and build a secred temple 'Heiau'.

This property was perfect for my 9 year old son and my stay. It was centrally located, beautiful view, and we enjoyed the amenities:pool, tennis court, and beautiful grounds. It was nice to be able to walk to shops, the farmers market, and restaurants. Thank you!

This is one of the best properties on the island. The facility is great, good security, the grounds are well kept, there is a laundry, and wonderful pool. You can walk out of your condo and down to a nice swim spot in the ocean. The breeze comes into the room, and at night you can view the ocean and sky colors. The condo is clean, and the kitchen has what you need to cook meals. There is a half bath and full bath, a good set of beach towels, and several other items such as a cooler to make your day trips easy. The location allows you to travel to the North Shore in 45 mins, and the west side in under an hour. There are near by beaches, and a variety of snorkeling shops, grocery stores, and restaurants. The nearby river marina has kayaking, etc. opportunities. I love this condo and the owner, manager, and staff are easy to contact and are very helpful! It is easy to enjoy Kauai staying here!

Gorgeous location, beautiful complex! This is a large one bedroom condo with ocean views. It comes with a well stocked kitchen, comfortable bed and pillows, two bathrooms. The unit is very dated but has everything you need. Unfortunately for us, We could not access the property at first because there was no way to reach the owner. Neither could VRBO. He had sent an email weeks before with the info that I didn't receive. Luckily for us we were able to get a hold of the housecleaner from security and she gave us the code to get in. Otherwise we would've had to stay somewhere else. We were able to reach the owner of the next day, he's on the East Coast so there is a big time difference. So please make sure you have all the information you need many days before and if not start the contact process then. Otherwise a perfect stay on the most beautiful island in the US.

We enjoyed our stay overall, and would come back again. The unit looks like a some updates have been done, carpet and tile. The lanai is in need of attention, it detracts from the beautiful view. Toaster was missing and the coffee pot should be replaced, the lights on the buttons don’t work, so you’re never quite sure it’s working, until you hear it. Wifi quit working the last two days, we couldn’t get it restarted. All in all, we had a good time.

Condo was perfect for our time in Kauai. Great location within walking distance to everything yet felt quiet and serene right on

We loved the central location on the island. It is easy to explore in all directions. We also loved the beautiful ocean and garden views from the condo. The grounds are truly lovely. The condo does not have climate control, but it gets good cross breezes if you open all the windows. With the humidity being pretty high I would like to suggest 100% cotton bedding instead of the polyester. I felt a little sticky. That is just me, it may not bother anyone else. We really enjoyed our stay and will stay here again if the opportunity arises. Mahalo!

Love the beautiful tropical plants and charming water ponds. The tiki torches at night were cool. Steps to the beach and to one of the best bars on the Beach Lava Lava Beach Club. Lae Nani is also right near an ancient Hawaiian religious site called a Heiau.

Everything we needed was available except for shampoo and bath soap, but market was nearby. Comfy bed. Side gate and pool gate codes were wrong, but easily rectified. Favorite spot was the back deck with superb views.

Although dated the unit was very clean and comfortable and included a couple of unexpected amenities like a walking stick, snorkeling fins and umbrella. Would stay again.



June 2023
Beautiful place, loved the view of the ocean from our living room and lanai. We're from Missouri and didn't miss the a/c. Used the fan in the bedroom to drown out the roosters in the wee hours of the morning. Easy walk to the local bakery and marketplace and restaurants. Great location -- about 30 to 40 minutes to get to the north side or south side. Would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful property with good location. Condo was clean. Check in easy. Condo needs some TLC..beach towels are old. Bath towels with limited supply, iron boards coffee maker need replacing. Lanai furniture is also in need of replacement. Cable stopped working during sport playoffs and property manager didn’t fix the problem. All in all beautiful property. Will likely choose hotel for future stays.

Property was as described and beautiful. Location was perfect for us. Furniture and fixtures could use some updating however battling the moisture can be difficult. There were some rusty beach items available for use. Overall the stay was nice and we would stay there again.

Perfect location to experience all that Kauai has to offer. On a lovely beach, close to restaurants and shopping, and midway between the north and south coasts. Great hosts. My fiancée and I truly enjoyed our stay.

This condo and garden grounds were perfect for our holiday celebration. The apartment was clean and the view of the beach and gardens from the balcony was spectacular. It’s within walking distance to a bakery and many good restaurants, even a small market in the Coconut Marketplace. All the staff were congenial, including Gary, and Wayne was a great help from the beginning. We hope to return!

This unit had everything we needed, plus a few extras; beach chairs, cooler and towels. Good communication with host. The pool and grounds were above average. We would stay here again.

Got off to slow start. We were given the wrong code to get in but it was resolved quickly by the owner and location manager. View from the room is gorgeous and the grounds are beautiful with a great view. The unit was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped.

This was a beautiful condo, we really enjoyed our stay here. The condo was clean, airy and spacious. The lanai looked onto the beautifully manicured grounds with the ocean behind. Enjoyed walking next door for dinner and along the bike trail in the mornings. Great location on the island as it sort of situated right in the middle. Would definitely stay here again.

Condo is clean and large. The landscaping really adds to the resort. We enjoy swimming and the pool is a comfortable temperature and large. The view from the lanai is spectacular and Wayne earns a gold star for communication.

Pros: - Good location -Nice beach just outside the door - Very nice swimming pool area - Spacious condominium - Bed and pillows comfortable - I was given the instructions and the direction to get to the condo well ahead of time Cons: - Need to be cleaned better - There was no hand soap at any of the three sinks - Bath tub drain was clogged - Bath needed to be cleaned (used a paper towel to clean the bath the day after I arrived and the paper towel was pink from moisture) - Many windows screen are dusty and dirty with lots of bugs - The outdoor furniture is outdated and need to be replaced - Code to exit the pedestrian gate wasn’t the right one I contacted the manager for the hand soap and the drain of the bath. She brought hand soap for all sinks before the end of the day and some « drano » for the bath (after I asked a second time). It worked but had to do it myself. Overall the place was nice and I enjoyed my stay at Lea Nani. It was a good amount of money for one week and I was expecting the place to be cleaner and well maintained.

The property is beautiful. Nice private beach and great swimming pool. The unit has everything you need and the view from the lani is amazing. 2 minute walk to lava lave beach club for great food and drinks with an ocean view.

This was our second two week stay in this lovely, large condo. The view and location are tremendous and the owner is great at communicating. Some of the furnishings could use some upgrades and supplies were a bit low, but overall our stay was wonderful!

The condominium was well stocked. Would have liked two more beach towels as the two that were supplied got Sandy with a 6-day stay. The view from the porch looking out at the water and at the grounds of the complex was beautiful. The amenities online listed washer and dryer. I expected it to be in the unit, not a coin operated for the complex. The unit was cool without air conditioning in the morning and evening, but was warm in the afternoons. I would probably look for an air conditioned unit on my next visit.


Chloe D.
October 2022
The view from the unit is incredible and the location can't be beat. Beautiful view and right on the beach, around the corner is a great beach front restaurant and a couple minute walk away is an amazing bakery and an outdoor set of stores to easily grab anything you may need and shaved ice even. Would definitely recommend staying here, especially for the price it was such great value! Wayne was also very responsive when we had a problem with the unit not being ready for our arrival, he was great solving our issue promptly and the property manager quickly dealt with it while we were able to grab dinner on the beach.

We saw this property when in Kauai in 2021 and thought it would be a great location for a future visit. We were not disappointed. The view is awesome! The small beach is a great place to hang out, but can be rough. A "baby pool" is available for kids, or anyone. The pool is also perfect. The condo has everything you will need. Suggest checking provisions before going to grocery store. People leave things you might be able to use. Highly recommend!!!

We had the nicest trip. Wayne the owner was very communicative with us as was the property manager Bernadette. The condo was clean and well stocked. The garden on the property is stunning. It was just right and it is very conveniently located next to restaurant and shopping options. We would definitely stay at this condo again.

The condo complex is situated perfectly for day trips to Princeville or Poipu, close to groceries and restaurants. The grounds are magnificent, making a trip to the botanical gardens irrelevant. We love the sight and sound of the ocean just a moments stroll from all the units. We seldom repeat, but we'll be back! The unit itself is dated but clean and functional. The adjacent unit sold recently for $950k. It's a lovely complex.

My wife and I were celebrating our 22nd Anniversary on beautiful Kauai. We selected this condo mainly because of its mid-island location to Hanalei, Poipu and Waimea. The View from the Lanai is Breathtaking with coconut palms and a wide ocean view. The grounds are beautiful, clean and family oriented. The salt water pool was very pleasant and we met guests from all over. It was quiet, safe and the staff had the Aloha Spirit. We would recommend this condo to our friends and family Mahalo!

The condo itself wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t really cozy either. As the other reviews noted it was dated but clean. I will say the sheets were the worst part…. I would’ve bought new sheets if I had a king bed at home! All the essentials were there. The location was perfect, 10 min from the airport and central to everything. There is the Lava Lava Beach Club right next door for feet-in-the-sand happy hour. There is a nice little beach and even a heiau right in the property. The grounds are meticulously maintained and the pool is very nice. Great neighbors. A cute little coffee place next door too. Some days were didn’t even leave the property because everything we needed was right there!

Beautiful and well-maintained older resort in great location with a property manager that is professional and very responsive. Cons: this unit badly needs updating and a deep cleaning. Most everything works and it is well enough stocked, but the visible gunk on molding, chair rail, screens… incorrectly wired or defective outlets with burn marks that will spark if you try to use, pile of rust called an ironing board, rusted ceiling fan that required love taps to get moving, peeling wallpaper, etc. take away from what could easily be a great place to stay.

When we arrived at check in, the condo had not been cleaned at all. I do want to emphasize that Wayne was a great host and was great to work with. He was prompt to respond, extremely apologetic, and the situation ended up getting resolved. The location is great, I felt like we were pretty centrally located to food/recreation/etc. There’s a beach right outside, and a restaurant right next door. I might suggest investing in a deep clean of the unit. Had we been on the island for a longer stay where we might have wanted to use the kitchen or spend more time in the condo, I’m not sure how comfortable we would have ultimately been with that. That being said, we enjoyed ourselves and I would definitely consider staying in this unit next time we visit Kauai!


Pat R.

Location was beautiful. The room itself was ok. The condo was probably built in the 80’s or so. It was as clean but could definitely use some upgrades. The price was right though

The apartment has all that you would need to enjoy this wonderful island. The location is excellent: within an hour of the North or West sides, and a one block walk from some good restaurants and shops. The BEST bakery down the street! What makes this resort so easy is that there is a good swimming beach with a protected area for kids, as well as a large swimming pool! Good security with a gate and laundry facilities. I love the view I had every night of the sky, sea and Kauai coastline. The kitchen has all you need to cook meals. There is a little cooler and water bottles for traveling, and a good fan that can be relocated around the apartment. A great library of a variety of paperbacks as well as classics is in one of the cupboards, with games as well. I very much appreciated the quiet atmosphere of the resort. I can't wait to visit again!

WOW! This was the perfect location in Kauai. The grounds were absolutely beautiful! The condo was clean and the view was amazing! Might need a bit updating, but the view outside made up for it. My husband and I sure did enjoy our honeymoon and we would come back and stay here again. There were quite a few kids around as well. The condo did have a cooler and hiking stick which was a nice surprise and we used everyday. The Lava Lava beach club next door was GREAT! Excellent food and drinks. So many hiking trails and activities to do and all pretty close too since we were in a great location on the island. We cannot wait to come back to Kauai one day soon! Mahalo <3

This property had almost everything we needed for our stay in Kapaa. The grounds and view were beautiful. The bed was extremely comfortable. The kitchen had all the utensils and appliances we needed and more. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai and watching the surf every evening. It's close to a small marketplace and other hotels that have restaurants and larger stores are within walking distance (about 1 mile). There is a small pool for kids and a small beach. The surf was high during our stay but there was a beach with a protected swimming area very close. It's a perfect location/condo for a family vacation. The only thing that would have made this condo perfect for us is if there were some air-conditioning in the bedroom as it took a while to cool off at night, but this did not stop us from enjoying our stay.

The Lae Nani condos feature gorgeous grounds that are well maintained by friendly staff. There is a swimmable beach just steps from the condo that includes an enclosed pond suitable for youngsters. Three gas grills are available adjacent to the swimming pool. The lanai of the condo unit has a gorgeous view of the ocean looking south toward Lihue. The condo itself is quite spacious, with a full bath in the master bedroom plus a half bath near the entrance. There is big king bed in the master and a pull-out sofa bed in the living room. WiFi and two TVs with HD cable. The condo is on the second (of three) stories, so you will need to navigate a flight of stairs, but the stairs only provide access to three other units, which helps keep things quiet. Two grocery stores and numerous restaurants are a short drive north along the highway (traffic along the highway through Kapaa can become VERY congested during much of the day). Lihue is just 7 miles south (stock up on provisions at Costco, which has by far the chepaest gas on the island). Kapaa is situated about half way between the north coast and the west coast (you can't drive all the way around the island), making day (or half-day) trips anywhere on Kauai quite convenient. Communication with the host went smoothly and there is an office near the tennis courts that is staffed on weekdays. If we return to Kauai we would definitely consider staying at this property again.

This was a beautiful property central to all of our adventures on the island. The condo was clean and comfortable with a nice breeze at night. Had all the amenities we needed for cooking and relaxing on the deck. We will be back and look forward to staying here again. Thank you Wayne and Nancy for sharing your place of paradise with us.

We have stayed at Lae Nani before and loved it. This time we arrived late after 6 pm on Friday and had no bedding. It took several calls to housekeeping to get the condo fixed. Same for later in the week when we ran out of toilet paper. There were fans but In the future I think for June visits to Hawaii we will look for a place with AC. The inside of 327 could use some updating as it is a bit worn feeling and dated. Lae Nani is on a very magical cove and that,of course,was the best part!

We experienced a wonderful, relaxing week in this unit! It is nicely appointed(we appreciated the comfortable couch) and is in a great location. It provided a great view and welcoming "Aloha" atmosphere. The pool is large and well situated, with easy access to the beach as well. It would have been nice to have more than two beach towels available for our use. We did need to purchase additional ones as we are very active with water activities and required dry ones while out and about on day trips. We did utilize the on site laundry facilities, but had difficulty with this as well because the change machine was "out of order", and no one was available in the office after 4 pm( holiday weekend too). We were fortunate to have help from friendly neighbors & Lava Lava club to acquire the needed quarters. The grounds are beautifully maintained and gorgeous. The only comment I have here is regarding the lighting on the stairwell. Some of the light bulbs must have been burned out, making it difficult to traverse to the 2nd floor at night. There was also a loose paving stone at the base of the stairs which could cause a trip hazard. Mahalo nui loa for sharing your lovely vacation home with us!!

Great view, quiet, private, clean and well-equipped -- we really enjoyed our stay at the Lae Nani condo in Kapaa. The beach has beautiful tidepools to explore at low tide and the "fishpond" style swimming area is beautiful. There's an interesting outdoor mall just a 5-minute walk from the condo with a Jojo's Shave Ice place in it that is great. It's such a convenient location for exploring the island. We had a wonderful time staying here.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lae Nani condos. Grounds were beautiful. Pool and BBQ area was great. Condos are right beside the Lava Lava Beach Club which has a great happy hour!

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Lae Nani condo resort. Our two young children absolutely loved the “baby beach”, the pool, and all of the green space to run around in. The unit had everything we could have asked for and we loved falling asleep to the ocean breezes and waking up to the sounds of the birds. I would highly recommend this place to families with children of all ages. The kitchen was very well equipped and the entire location was more than we could have hoped for. Thank you for a wonderful experience! It was our first time in Kauai and hopefully it won’t be our last.

The grounds and beach area are spectacular! We loved that we could see the ocean from our lanai. The laundry area is very clean and spacious. We also liked that there is no air conditioning and it is not needed. The ocean breezes are wonderful. The kitchen has everything you might need, and there are beach chairs, cooler, mats and beach floats.

We had a very nice stay despite the amount of kids, traffic and weather. The location is great for day trips and there are good restaurants and grocery shopping within walking distance. The Coconut Grove Market Place is charming. The 3 community gas grills are wonderful as is the pool and surrounding area The grounds are gorgeous--lush flowering plants everywhere and a well maintained, extensive lawn. The condos are located far enough from the beach so you can hear the waves crash but it's not overwhelming. It rained every day, but we were able to get out for walks and some reading by the beach most days. You can't have rainbows without rain. But the rain has been so extensive, the northern part of the island was closed off. If you have kids, this would be a great spot. We don't, so the amount of kids was a bit much for a relaxing-intended get away. The unit could use updating, but was comfortable and practical for our purpose. It was not as clean as I had hoped.
