Loved the view, the amenities, the pool and the condo overall. Air conditioning didn’t work but was fixed easily. A few ants in the bathroom. Property manager didn’t respond as quickly as we thought she should have. Would most likely stay here again though.
If you want a really nice easy place to relax you found it. Very nice condo well equipped with everything you need. Restaurants and shopping just a few feet away. Safe spot to swim with lots of shade trees. Very good communications with the owner and her property manager
Property was exactly as advertised, beautiful view, well appointed with a great pool. The beach and ocean were very clothes,and the Coconut Marketplace was right bext door. Good restaurants and stores. The barbecues were spotless. I would highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here if I go back to Kauai.
No problems renting the condo. Great location and we had an awesome time on the island
This updated condo was a delight to stay in for two weeks. It has every amenity you could ask for and more. Just make sure the occupants know it’s a 3rd story unit with no elevator. We will be back.
This condo has a great view. It gets the morning and afternoon sun with a perfect breeze off the water. The kitchen has everything you need. The bed was very comfortable. We will definitely consider staying here again when we return to Kauai.
Daniel out host was superb extremely responsive to any issues and very accommodating to any requests or issues that occurred. To improve on the space we would suggest improving the quality of the mattresses and bedding and to have some form of cupboard in the second bedroom or at least hooks in the hallway for coats. Other than these minor issues the space is amazing - huge area for kitchen and for hanging out and the view of course is exceptional with very easy access to the best parts of Tel Aviv. For those who have difficulty with stairs be forewarned that their is no elevator and heavy suitcases may be an issue up the many flights of stairs. Thanks or providing an excellent space .
Great condo, Tropical surroundings
Generally, our stay was great. A plumbing leak was taken care of promptly. I found that, as opposed to many stays years earlier, that the general public was allowed to use the grounds -- even the pool. I don't think management was aware of this since it occurred over the holidays when the office was closed. In any case, our stay was great and we would return.
We absolutely loved the view ~
your deck is amazing to enjoy the morning sun and afternoon sunsets!
The cozy bath robes are a nice touch!
Great location easy for getting around the island!
We love the location and the facility because it is quiet and the people are overall very friendly.
The unit had a sliding door screen that was really hard to open and close. It was as if there was no wheels on it.
The portable air conditioner did cool the bedroom but it didn't cool the rest of the unit. The A/C exhaust fan was piped out the window and the hot air just came back in through the louvered glass window above it. We didn't use it because it didn't make sense to circulate the hot air.
Not all the window worked and the screens were a bit bent open and dirty.
We had a great stay at this property. Really well stocked kitchen and a super comfortable bed. Would suggest upgrading the pillows to match the mattress - they were quite flat :)
The complex is really nice and quiet. The pool was incredible - great temperature and felt super clean. Don't miss the Tues/Thurs farmer's market in nearby Coconut Marketplace - the best!
A super lovely place to stay!
This unit has everything you need for vacationing in Kauai. What I loved the best was the view from the lanai, living room and kitchen. It overlooks the beautiful pool and grounds, with the ocean and mountains in the background. A great beach is steps away as well as restaurants and shopping. Any issues we had were promptly addressed by management.
The location is perfect for those planning to travel around the island. The condo is gated and #231 had incredible views of the ocean. The complex was quiet and had all the amenities you could need. The room also came with beach/snorkeling gear so we didn't have to rent it. Overall, it was a great homebase for our honeymoon.
Our trip got off to a rocky start due to a miscommunication between the care taker of the property and the property manager (the property manager does not live on the island), we received the wrong information which caused us to not be able to get into the room. However, once we got that sorted out it was quickly forgotten due the property being such an amazing find. The view from the room is unreal and the property grounds are absolutely amazing from the lush landscaping to the well kept amenities. The condo itself could use a little love but it is in great shape and any negatives I could tell you about are easily overshadowed by the excellence of the property. I do however need to mention that the internet bandwidth provided is not sufficient for any sort of remote working (I tested it multiple times during our week stay and was only getting 3MB/s down and less than 1MB/s up) so think twice if you know you will need a solid internet connection for work.
I wouldn't say I am well traveled but one thing that I always hate about travelling is 9/10 of the showers I use just suck. They get the job done but it is usually a terrible experience from low water pressure to it being just big enough to turn around in and in some cases just disgusting. The shower in this condo is 10/10! It is huge (more than enough room for 2), has great water pressure, has a little bench for sitting and has one of those awesome double shower heads with all the different setting on the detachable part. Not sure why this is not pictured in the ad but it really should be, it was an absolute pleasure taking a shower.
The beach is really cool, if you're not much of a swimmer the beach has a really neat "pool" that was created in the ocean with lava rocks so you can feel completely safe taking a dip in the ocean without having to deal with the waves. The condo also had a little closet on the lanai with pretty much every piece of beach equipment you could possibly want.
There are many food places and a market within walking distance, the hotel next door also has an oceanfront restaurant/bar with nightly entertainment. I would have been perfectly happy just staying near the property the whole trip but the other excellent part of choosing this property is it is centrally located between both the south and the north making it a perfect "home base" from which to explore.
If you are lucky enough to find availability for this little gem do not hesitate to book it.
The property is as good if not better than the pictures indicate. End unit gives a feeling of open space and with Building 1 only two stories this third floor condo has more of a feeling of privacy that is somewhat unique. Very clean and well appointed and the communication with Bernadette and Amber was exceptional. The proximity to the pool and beach was exactly what we had in mind. Easy walk to Coconut Marketplace and a short drive to Safeway and onto Kapaa (have to try Kountry Kitchen) makes this a perfect location.
It feels like you're living in a beautiful tree house - the condo is clean, comfortable with a view of the ocean that you can swim, snorkel or surf in right in front. The central location could not be better. I'm looking forward to staying there next time.
Absolutely beautiful view of the ocean from the patio. Quiet grounds, somewhat secluded beach. Condo is in immaculate condition. I would stay here again!
We stayed for 9 nights. Condo was beautiful and the view from the balcony was Unbeatable. Original door code we received did not work when we arrived bit situation was easily resolved with a quick phone call. Would definitely recommend this condo to anyone.
The condo is even more beautiful than the pictures. Everything was wonderful and communication with Amber, the owner was exceptional. We would love to stay there again.
Wonderful place to stay, easy check-in, beautiful accommodations!
Very nice rental.
Condo was great. Nice pool and great location.
This VRBO is very beautiful, the photos don't do it justice!
It's in a great location, right next door to the Coconut Marketplace where there is an ABC store and multiple restaurants and shops.
The VRBO was well stocked with towels, beach towels and we were pleasantly surprised by all the items in the porch closet for us to use including a beach bag, cooler, boogie board, snorkel, fins and a beach umbrella.
We did reach out to the host, Amber, prior to reserving our stay to ask more details about what was at the VRBO so we could pack accordingly. Our understanding was that she manages the property but had not been there herself. We did get the check in instructions a month out from our trip and they were easy to follow. I did reach out to Amber twice during our stay with questions via the VRBO app but never got a response.
We never used the pool during our stay but it looked well maintained and there were always people swimming.
The beach is a little rocky but still swimmable. We saw lots of kite surfers there as well.
The grounds of the property are beautiful as well and staying on the east side of the island was very convenient for all our plans. Overall, we would definitely stay at this location again!
This was the perfect vacation rental! Location was the best with about an hour drive to both the North & West end of the island. Condo is very clean and equipped with everything you need along with beautiful view of the Lae Nani grounds and ocean! Quiet, peaceful and super comfy king size bed. Also, the BEST malasadas we have ever had just a couple blocks away at Passion Bakery!
The grounds and view are absolutely beautiful. Everything was as pictured. There is an air unit in the bedroom which was not needed with the tradewinds coming through but during hot months would definitely need to be used. The location was perfect. We enjoyed our stay at Lae Nani.

The property changed owners after we had already secured our rental. The new owners were very easy to work with and kept the same contract with us as the previous owners. All in all our stay went without any problems. We have stayed at Lae Nani before and will be back again…
This is a lovely condo in a great location and is a good value. Its beautifully decorated, the bed is insanely comfortable, as is the furniture. The view from the lanai is gorgeous. It has easy access to the pool, beach and the lovely grounds. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and a great farmer's market. It was great to walk right over to Lava Lava Beach Club. It is fairly quiet. Our stay, however, was complicated by the last-minute sale of this condo days prior to our arrival. This caused me a little bit of extra stress during our trip prep. The new owners agreed to honor all the terms of our original rental agreement, which they did. Even though, the issues we did have were resolved, I feel they are worth noting.
First, when we arrived, after dark, the condo was completely dark. Upon entering, we quickly noticed that the condo had not been completely cleaned and prepared for our arrival. As it was late, and we were so tired from a long day of travel we let it go and went to bed. A quick message to the property manager, resulted in our cleaning fee being promptly refunded. Very appreciated. I guess there was a miscommunication on their part. Things do happen so we shrugged it off. I think for future trips I will verify everything a day or so before arrival.
The condo was generally well stocked. We even found some spices. Lots of pretty glassware and dishes, along with insulated mugs to take to the pool. We did find a few things lacking. There is no dish sponge provided, and I would have appreciated a good fry pan or griddle. Also, understand that you are only allowed 2 sets of towels per person. This was kind of a deal for us as we stayed 12 nights and had not planned on doing any laundry this trip, let alone the condo's towels in the coin op laundry, with no detergent supplied. After a lengthy e mail back and forth with the manager, we finally were able to get some clean towels mid stay. I appreciated the resolution, but it took a lot of effort to get there. Apparently, they are afraid if they allow too many towels, guests will leave them in a damp, mildewy pile. Hmm. Overall, it was a very nice stay, even with the hiccups that were resolved to our satisfaction. The only reason I would not stay again, is I have learned that being able to do laundry in my condo is a bigger deal than I realized, especially when towels are in short supply.
Fantastic view, great location, updated property with 1 1/2 bathrooms. Sleep sofa quite comfortable but needs updated linens. Kitchen well equipped and lanai with that view!
The property was just as advertised--comfortable and well-equipped with a fantastic view from the deck and dining room and easy access to the property's amenities (pool, beach, laundry room, etc.) and everything Kauai has to offer. Kapa'a is a perfect place to stay no matter what direction you want to drive for sightseeing and activities (and food and drink--you can't forget that). An added bonus was having the Lava Lava Beach Club just a few steps away (tasty food and wonderful Mai Tais, and you're allowed to have more than one--you're walking, remember). We had a great week on Kauai!
Very nice, would definitely stay here again.
Great condo in central location only a few minutes from the Lihue airport allows easy commute to the North Shore, Poipu or Waimea.. Well equipped, with excellent ocean/pool views. Great for just sitting back and enjoying Kauai. The owner provided prompt responses and his property manager was friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend it.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at Stephen's condo. It was immaculate, had all the amenities we could need, and we loved that the property had a beach right in front. The Lava Lava Beach Club next door was great for happy hour and drinks as well. Stephen was a very gracious host and we greatly appreciated him allowing us a late check out given that our flight back to the mainland was so late and we had infant twins with us. We hope to be back in the future, thank you Steve!
Staying at Lae Nani 231 was everything my wife and I could’ve hoped for and more. The view, the location, the accommodations were everything as advertised. Couldn’t be happier with our stay.
The most relaxing vacation we've had in a long time. The property is stunning. The condo is gorgeous. The view is incredible. The grounds are the most impeccable that we've ever had the pleasure to stay at. I hope we have the pleasure to stay here again in the next 12 months. Absolutely fantastic!
My family and I booked a weeklong stay at Steve's place, and we couldn't have been more thrilled with our visit. The unit was immaculate, the location was amazing, and that spectacular view could not be beat. From Steve's communication, to the friendliness/helpfulness of the onsite property office staff, we really couldn't have asked for a better experience. It was our first time to Kauai, and it definitely won't be the last. Thanks again, Steve!
This property is in a fantastic location. Beautiful view from the room. The grounds are stunning! Condo is appointed with everything you could ever need. Communication with owner was fantastic! It is ion the 3rd floor so keep this in mind if you have mobility issues - no elevator.
Loved staying at Stephen’s place! The property was clean, beautiful, and secure. Check-in and communication was quick and easy. Can’t recommend enough!
This condo gave us a luxurious paradise for our honeymoon. The views were spectacular. The amenities were beyond the basics and super comfortable and luxurious. It’s SO close to the ocean, you can hear the waves when you’re sleeping. This is the perfect paradise vacation!
Steve, the owner of this unit was a pleasure to work with, timely in communications and went the extra mile to help out friends staying in another unit within the same building.
The unit is well appointed and is as described and pictured. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again and recommend to friends and family.
The only mix-up was the unit was not cleaned upon our arrival. That mix-up was taken care of immediately. Mix-up's happen - don't let it deter you from renting!
Great clean place with beach access and pool. Owner was not too communicative prior to arrival but everything got sorted. Great location in the middle of the island. Place was very nicely decorated!
This place is perfect. Had everything you need to have a wonderful stay. Our view was all you could dream of.
We would come over snd over.
You can walk to many eateries
This condo was great for our vacation! The view from the balcony can't be beat! We ate breakfast and dinner on the balcony and enjoyed the ocean view. This condo was fully stocked with anything you would need for a day at the beach. The location was great for anything we wanted to do on the island. We would definitely rent this condo again!
Great unit at Lae Nani. Beautiful finishes/decor....great Hawaiian feel and views of ocean and mountains.
This place is just as described by the owner. The views make you think twice about going out to explore the beautiful Island ,and the interior is decorated with taste and class.
Steve was a great host, responsive and vested in his guests having a pleasant vacation.
