At Lae Nani #511, you will feel truly relaxed, surrounded by lush tropical landscaping and listening to the soothing sound of the ocean’s waves breaking on the shore. The location of this three-bedroom suite is ideal, providing views of the ocean as well as gorgeous panoramic views of Lae Nani’s immaculate grounds and is literally just steps from the beach. The beach has something for the entire family, whether you want to boogie board, swim, snorkel, or just relax in the quiet waters protected by surrounding coral reefs. The lava rock protected pool area is ideal for families with small children. The condo is also only a short walk to the pool if you are looking to relax in a different environment and soak up sun on one of the many lounge chairs.

This large three bedroom, two-bath condo has been completely remodeled, and is professionally decorated. The gourmet kitchen has granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances making it ideal for preparing meals for family and friends. The dining room is furnished with a beautiful, large table, providing seating for six people. Additional stools at the kitchen bar add seating for the kids.

The living room is decorated with comfortable coastal furniture allowing you to relax and unwind. The sliding door off the living room provides easy access to your lanai; perfect for coffee or breakfast at sunrise, a peaceful setting for dinner, or a place to gather for cocktails at sunset. After an exciting day of exploring the island of Kauai, you will retire to comfortable sleeping quarters that will accommodate up to six people. The master bedroom offers a pillow-top king size bed and private lanai with views of the ocean, the first guest room also provides a pillow-top king size bed and the second guest room has two twin beds. There are two beautifully remodeled bathrooms, one in the master bedroom and the second for the two guest rooms with access for all guests from the main hallway. We can accommodate 6 people in beds and we have an air mattress to sleep 2 additional people (children).

Flat screen HDTV’s are in each bedroom and as well as one in the living room. Overhead plantation fans are in each room providing added air circulation on top of the favorable Hawaiian trade winds that flow through the living spaces. Beach towels and beach chairs are provided and will be found in the hallway closet. There is free parking onsite and free WI-FI available. The Lae Nani property amenities include; a beautiful heated pool, overlooking the Wailua Bay, gas barbecues conveniently located on the grounds, a lighted tennis court, and resort laundry facilities.

Lae Nani is located on Kauai’s east side, just north of Lihue on the Coconut Coast. This ideal location provides the best starting point for your island adventures. Poipu is only approximately 30 minutes south, and you can reach the Princeville area in approximately 45 minutes.

Lae Nani does not have A/C. Typically the trade winds provide nice cool breezes through the units and ceiling fans assist. The louvers in the guest bedrooms can be opened along with the louvers in the ocean facing parts of the condo to allow for the flow of air.

Our stay was simply wonderful (family of 4). The property is on the ground floor with a view of the beach. You can swim or snorkel (there are nice rocky areas where you can see fish.). There's also a tidal pool which we affectionately called "mini-Queens Bath." This was great for relaxing. There's a large pool at the complex as well. The condo was spacious for us and our girls appreciated having their own rooms. The location is just north of Lihue in Kapaa. Perfect location as you can easily get to Princeville/Napali coast in one direction, and Poipu in the other. It's a 200M walk to a mall like complex with nice eateries and shopping. One last thing, there were lots of kids when we were there! It was fantastic for my younger girl (8 years old). I would highly recommend this property especially for a family. And I surely return to it the next time we're in Kauai.

We loved our stay in Denise’s beautiful home. The ocean view was incredible. Our favorite memories were made sitting on the back patio visiting next to the ocean. We had a little problem with one of the beds and Denise was so quick to respond and so kind. We will definitely be back!

The property was beyond beautiful! The views, the flowers, the water! The pool was lovely. The condo itself was gorgeous, but usable. We all felt very comfortable everywhere on property. We hope we can come back and enjoy the home again. Mahalo!

Wonderful condo with perfect location for exploring Kauai. Beautifully decorated and comfortable, has everything you need to relax! Amazing property and ocean view to enjoy morning coffee on the lanai. Close to restaurant and grocery. Secure gated community, quiet and friendly. Would definitely book this lovely retreat again!

We couldn’t have been more fortunate than to find this gem of a Kauai property! We ranged in age from 3 to 76 and it was the perfect fit for us all. Handsomely appointed inside and the beach outside our door, it was perfection. One of the nicest pools we’ve experienced in a while. Denise was quick to respond to the few questions and needs that we had upon check in. Can’t wait to stay again. Mahalo!

Terrific location. Ground floor condo with great views of the beach and ocean. Perfect for the five of us including a five year old. Access to the beach was easy. Beautiful grounds that were well maintained. Pool and rock grotto in the ocean were definite advantages for us. Owner and local management are very responsive. We would definitely rent again.

Our extended family stayed at this property for 1/2 our stay. The property is gorgeous! The view is breathtaking, and the management was very responsive. It really is a perfect place to stay.

Everything was what we expected. We loved that the beach in the backyard was much less windy since it is a little more tucked away.

Beautifully decorated interior with a great view. Loved having the ground floor and because of its location it still felt private. Property met all our expectations. We had an infant with us and loved the calm, shallow, swimming area for her! Definitely will be back.

This particular property certainly exceeded our expectations and will be on our short list for our next visit to Kauai. There are great views directly from the condo, which is very well equipped and furnished. The ground floor location provided very easy access to the grounds, the beach, the pool, etc. Yet, it still provided a very private setting. The facility’s staff was very responsive and friendly. Overall, this is an excellent location that is well within walking distance to shopping and dining opportunities, including pastries and shaved ice.

This was the perfect property for two couples and two children. It was on the ground floor so the kids could run out to the ocean or to the pool. The unit was spacious and had a washer and dryer. We would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our week at Lae Nani. The condo had all we needed. Space, beautiful furnishings, kitchen and beach supplies, and most importantly a ground floor lanai that opens to Lae Nani Beach Park. We enjoyed the beach the most with playing in the small surf multiple times a day, including some visits by the green sea turtles. Kapa'a met our needs of being out of the high tourist area but close enough to some things (Lava Lava Beach Club and Coconut Marketplace) for us to walk to some places. And Kauai is small enough that any place is a reasonable drive, especially once you get past the Kapa'a crawl (daily slow moving traffic through Kapa'a).

Absolutely stunning! So many activities within walking distance. The views from the lanai were incredible. Short driving distance to popular attractions. Denise was incredible to work with. Cared about making sure we were comfortable. Always available to communicate. Have so many suggestions for activities. My husband and I are definitely coming back. 🧡

Great location providing good North to South island commute, awesome morning sunrises, local a/c units did not adequately cool the condo during the hot Aug days

This was our first trip to Kauai and we chose this rental based on its stellar reviews. It did not disappoint! We absolutely loved staying here: it has a super convenient location, it is a corner-ground floor unit which makes it easy to access and private, it is super clean and beautifully decorated and in a really nice complex. Our favorite part were the views out to the ocean. Awesome rental!

Delivered as promised. Loved every aspect of this stay. Minor suggestion to keep some consumables handy and stocked such as condiments, soap/body wash, detergent. We had to step out a few times to get some basic supplies.

The condo was a perfect place to stay. The photo’s don’t do it Justice. It’s right on a beautiful beach. The unit was Immaculately clean and had everything that you need. You should check the cabinets and fridge before you do grocery shopping as they had a lot of the basics. All the beds were comfortable and we enjoyed waking up to the sound of crashing waves. The unit is perfectly located walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We spent hours sitting on the lanai enjoying the spectacular view. I highly recommend this condo and look forward to returning to the future.

Mornings and afternoons spent walking out the back door to the ocean and playing in the waves. Loved this property, plenty of room, comfortable beds, nicely stocked kitchen. Short walk to the little shopping center with cute shops and shaved ice. Easy walk the other direction to a bakery. Really just the perfect location. Wouldn't hesitate staying here again and will miss our wonderful vacation oasis!

Denise's property far exceeded our wildest expectations, and we are already counting down the days until we can come back! Her property is absolutely magnificent and is in the most magical location. Although her photos are perfect, everything is even more immaculate in person! The condo itself is beautifully upgraded and exceeded all of our needs. The location is absolutely IDEAL! There are two natural pools at the beach that are perfect if you are staying with younger children, and the lanai is a magical place to watch the sunrise. There is also a beautiful restaurant just a short walk away. Again, just PERFECT! We can't wait to come back. Thank you, Denise!

We had 6 adult women stay in this condo and it was amazing. We've stayed on the North Shore before, but we'll choose this place the next time. Spacious bedrooms, bathrooms and living room. Wonderfully updated kitchen. The lanai overlooks the ocean - that you're just steps from. We enjoyed the beach and the pool daily. Centrally located on Kauai made this the perfect place to enjoy sightseeing in both directions. Working with Denise (manager) and Bernadette (cleaning staff) was easy and quick. We all agree this was a 10 star stay!!

This was an idyllic place for our family. The place is beautiful - the photos don’t do it justice. The beach is gorgeous and the swimming area of the beach was perfect for our young kids. The place is beautiful (amazing decor) and comfortable. Our kids also loved the pool. My elderly parents enjoyed the patio with beautiful views of the ocean.

This property exceeded all expectations! Not only was it clean and beautiful - but we all agreed it was in the very best location. The way the area is landscaped gives a private feel to the outdoor dining area as well as the lounge area outside the master bedroom. If you are wondering, this lovely unit is indeed on the ocean. The sound of the surf 24 hours a day was just the best. Also - please note that there wasn't a moment that we missed AC. In fact, we loved just using the screen doors (including the front door) to capture the natural breezes. We loved the salt water pool and especially the protected little beach area sort of in front of the pool where there is a breakwater and it is safe for children and others to enjoy being in the ocean. It is not terribly deep here but I loved swimming with the children grandson and locals as well. I spent many hours a day in this location just reading, knitting, and being in one of the most blessed and beautiful places on earth. The fact that the Coconut Marketplace is right next door, and an easy walk, contributed greatly to the ease and enjoyment of our stay. While Safeway and the Papaya Natural Food Market are pretty close by - they do require a car unless you do delivery. We did a bit of both but enjoyed the market at the Coconut Marketplace as well. We took a few carefully considered trips to experience some of the best of Kauai but primarily relaxed and enjoyed being together on the property. Anini beach snorkeling was wonderful. If you are interested in learning about chocolate, Lydgate Farms is a great place to visit. It is a small 5th generation family run artisinal chocolate farm located in a beautiful area not too far from the property. We also loved the farmer's market at the community college. This condo has such an amazingly set up kitchen that most days we prepared our own food at least two of three meals. The opportunities for great take out abound - and we generally would plan one meal to pick up or have delivered each day. There is much to see and do here but we were just exhausted from the pace of our daily life here in the Pacific Northwest and really wanted to relax. Covid precautions are expected everywhere and we were pleased about this. We want to protect ourselves - and others - and discovered this to be expected everywhere we went. I can't say enough about the kindness we experienced in and around Kapaa - and with everyone associated with our stay.

With ages 2 to 64,this was the perfect location. Easy walk to Coconut Market and shopping, fabulous Lava Lava bar and restuarant right next to this property. Step off the lanai, 100 feet away from the beach and amazing waves to relax in. Easy for people to "do their own thing". Thanks for helping add another chapter to our wonderful family memories.

Condo was great. Right on the beach. Beautiful grounds. Was fully stocked with plenty of beach towels/toys and everything you might need.

With two young children this property was ideal. It was a beautiful view and the kids loved playing in the grassy areas around the property. There was a pool and a small ocean area blocked by lava rocks that were perfect for kids. The condo was a little busy with furniture but we didn’t spend much time in it. Denise was super responsive if we needed anything. I would love to come back here in the near future with our family!

Surfside Paradise is truly perfect in every single aspect. As an interior designer I am fairly discerning with my vacation rentals. Not only is the interior perfectly appointed and the most comfortable home away from home, the exterior is a dream! The property grounds are stunning, but the personal lanais have breathtaking direct views of the gorgeous beach and ocean. Being on the first floor means you are steps to the sea and sunrises. The property is located right on the beach and within walking distance to shopping, groceries and a great beachfront restaurant next door. The community has excellent security as well as perfectly cared for swimming pool and tennis courts. The icing on cake is the management, their kindness and hospitality is unrivaled. I have never felt so accommodated for and will stay here again in the blink of an eye. Bravo Surfside Paradise - you are truly one in a million.
