THE AMBIENCE
If thoughts of azure oceans, romantic getaways and sunrise mornings are just some of the peaceful images that make you happy, then this is the oasis of your dreams. Turn your dreams into lifelong memories at our Lush Tropical Oasis - #523 Lae Nani Resort on the beautiful Royal Coconut Coast in eastern Kauai. Near Wailua Bay in Kapa'a, this is an enviously breathtaking 1 bedroom, ocean-front, beachfront condo located in the premier and preferred building #5 at Lae Nani, and the property is situated for perfect access to all parts of the island. Simply a spot of heaven you just may never want to leave.

Imagine lounging on your private lanai where the breaking waves, along with warm tropical trade wind breezes, glorious sunrises, amazing moonrises, and sparkling night skies will have you lost to all of the cares of the world. The beautiful sandy beach is just a few steps away, and the 180 degree view from the deep blue sea to the bay, along the dramatic coastline, and capped with the stunning Hokonui mountain peak is spectacular! Sweeping views of the deep blue pacific ocean from the kitchen, dining area and living room, with comfortable lounge chairs and table and chairs on the lanai, will keep you from ever wanting to leave!

Depending on the time of year of your stay, from the lanai you may get to admire breaching whales off the coast, observe sea turtles swimming or lounging on the beach, watch kite surfers flying through the air, or you may even get to cheer on outrigger canoe race or two! Plus, in addition to the unobstructed view, guests appreciate the enhanced security and privacy that a 2nd floor unit provides. (Please note - the unit is up one flight of stairs - no elevator). And, when it's time to get out and play, you can walk to nearby shops, restaurants and beaches, rent kayaks and bikes, or hop in your car, private tour, or Kauai bus and head any direction for a day of fun.

THE DETAILS
This remodeled retreat is so refreshing – you will not want to leave. The bedroom features a California king size bed, a new cool-sleep memory foam mattress, new luxurious linens and pillows, and air-conditioning for those warmer tropical nights (please note that a/c is located in the bedroom only). We also provide robes for you both - perfect for those crisper mornings on the lanai. The newly renovated bathrooms are stocked with all of the necessities needed for a worry-free stay, including towels and toilet paper, soap and shampoo, plus for those longer stays you'll have a washer and dryer in the complex with complimentary detergent at your fingertips.

Should you be in the mood to cook, you will love the well-equipped kitchen that includes all of the basics for cooking and BBQ, like your basic spices and condiments, a dishwasher, range, full size refrigerator and a microwave for those wonderful morning, afternoon, or evening meals on the lanai. That is, of course, if you can pass up the Passion Bakery Cafe (just down the street), whose pastries are a Kauai favorite, or the Lava Lava ... 300 steps from the front door! Finally, flanking the lush grounds and pool area are gas BBQ grills, perfect for you to enjoy so many of the fresh fish options that Kauai has to offer.

The condo is wonderfully stocked with the many items needed to enhance a tropical vacation, including beach towels, picnic coolers, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, 2 flat-screen TVs, games and movies. The kitchen has a great selection of spices, and other sundries, and there is also a new Keurig Supreme coffee maker and a sampling of Kauai Coffee K-Cups to kick-start your day.   The pool is the perfect spot to relax after a day of adventure, and you will appreciate how beautiful and well maintained the tropical plants and property are kept by the on-site care takers.

THE LOCATION
Located squarely along the Royal Coconut Coast in Kapa’a, this vacation retreat is just 10 minutes from the Lihue airport. In addition to nearby shopping at the Coconut Marketplace (a 3 minute walk), and a wonderful variety of restaurants (our favorite being the Lava Lava on the Beach right next door), many of Kauai's top activities are also nearby, to include the Wailua Golf Course (known as the best play for pay in Hawaii), Lydgate Park (a wonderful tree-lined picnicking beach with jetty-enclosed safe swimming and snorkeling havens), Wailua River Kayaking, numerous hiking trails, the Smith Family Garden Luau (an island favorite), and the "Ke Ala Hele Makale" - the 7.5 mile bike path that runs along the coast.

The Kauai Bike/Walking Path passes along the front of the property, and is the launching point to access nearby activities. Wailua Bay beach, a great walking beach where you can find little treasures, and it's only a 15 minute walk and Lydgate Park is a short drive (or 20 minute walk) to the south, and is known for its sea ponds (full of baby fish), and the perfect spot for swimming and snorkeling. .

The condo is clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the large balcony for our morning coffee. We even had the pleasure of watching a seal swim by 1 morning. The location is so convenient to walk to the market and several restaurants. Teri was very quick to respond with questions as well. Would stay here again! Paula

Excellent property!! Exactly as listed. Great location is centrally located on the east coast to get to all activities. Hearing the waves was important to my new wife and the water is right there. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property!!

The property was well maintained. Everything was as advertised. There were such nice touches, such as the robes that were perfect for enjoying the lanai in the early morning and evenings. The space so convenient for walking to restaurants and stores. We enjoyed the quiet space and loved hearing the ocean waves all night long! We hope to be able to return.

The property is excellent. The owners have thought of so many amenities. Cookware, yoga mats, ukelele to practice with, furniture on lanai, fans for the rooms that don't have AC, plenty of towels, hangers, seating, items in kitchen like seasonings, saran wrap, area to take off shoes with hooks nearby for hats/wraps. Our biggest issue was that we would have appreciated a thorough overview of the steps going down and then up in advance. We knew there was no elevator, but it felt like this key info was avoided. And the smells from neighboring units is not their fault, but hard to avoid when we needed patio doors open for cooling. Six our of 7 days, the smells took away from the atmosphere. The parking lot was difficult to manuever for mid-size cars. We parked by the laundry unit and walked.

We had a wonderful time in a lovely condo. The pictures of the condo are very true. Walking access to Coconut market, and central to the island of Kauai by car in all directions. Quiet location except for the roar of the surf and an easy beach access was enjoyable.

Condo was great, everything was as advertised, great view, spacious, clean, comfortable bed etc… Location is excellent to be able to explore both the north or south parts of the island. We would be glad to stay here again when we return yo Kauai.

A great condo and wonderful owners who are interested in ensuring that you have a good experience. The condo was just as described with the grounds and view even better than the pictures. Everything was well stocked and the hosts provided many helpful tips on restaurants and activities. The central location was also great for going either north or south. There were many restaurants within walking distance. We would definitely stay here gain.

We loved this condo. The Lai Nani property is always great and this unit was perfect for me and my husband. The location and ocean front view was perfect. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed. We used the beach chairs, umbrella and cooler on our beach outings. We enjoyed the pool and the lovely grounds were we could sit in the shade and read. We walked to restaurants including Lava Lava Beach Club which was great. I highly recommend! And we will be back!

This condo definitely exceeded our expectations!! While we knew it was so pretty from pictures while searching for places for our stay in Kauai, when we arrived it was just paradise for sure!! We did a lot of hiking, but truly, the best 2 days were when we just stayed around the condo, hanging out at the beach and having meals on the lanai! Overall this condo is a beautiful place and highly recommend!! Laura and Bob

Heaven on earth. Whether we were in the condo outside, in the pool or on the beach, it was AMAZING! Beautiful, well kept grounds, and all you could ever need was waiting for you in the extremely nice Condo. I loved that shopping was within walking distance, so we could shop there or take a short or long drive and explore. We will rent this place again & I can’t wait!

We absolutely LOVED our stay is this beautiful and comfortable condo! The view is amazing and the sounds of the waves crashing is so therapeutic. Teri & Ron have stocked the condo thoughtfully and we had everything we needed for our week's stay (beach towels, chairs, beach umbrella snorkeling gear, laundry detergent, hair dryer, spices, condiments, etc.). The bed is very comfortable and the air conditioning in the bedroom made for a great night's sleep. When we left, we felt so refreshed and ready to get back to the real world :). The condo is located in the quaint town of Kapa'a, with a wide variety of great restaurants, and is perfectly situated to explore the island of Kauai. Our favorite eateries in Kapa'a were Napali Brewing Company, Sam's Ocean View, Lava Lava Club, the ice cream place next to Safeway, & Passion Bakery. Teri was very quick to address our questions and we definitely plan to return to Lea Nani #523 for more R&R!

I stayed there on my own for three days and it was magical. The condo is beautiful and the grounds are stunning and very well maintained. Hosts were responsive and quick to help when needed. The pictures are accurate and honestly don’t do the view justice, it was an absolutely gorgeous spot. Some of the bedroom furniture has been updated since the photos were taken and it looks very nice. The bed is high and almost a little challenging for a shorter person like myself to get into… but there was a step stool in the kitchen that could be used and the bed itself was very comfortable. The bedroom A/C gave a cool spot for sleeping. Kitchen was well equipped and there were lots of spices and condiments etc. for cooking. Would definitely stay there again.

It was a wonderful week, and a great place for some R&R! The condo was well-equipped and very comfortable, fantastic view from the lanai, beautiful property, quiet, appreciated the a/c in the bedroom, and many other nice little touches (thanks for the welcome gift!). Teri was a great host, and gave a lot of helpful info, that we used for the surrounding area (and then some). We enjoyed the small beach in front of the property, loved Lava Lava Beach Club (several trips there, so easy to walk), malasadas at Passion Bakery are a must, they also make great lunches to-go, Tiki Tacos tacos were delicious, Kountry Kitchen had just the kind of breakfast my husband loves, Coconut Marketplace was great for groceries and souvenirs. We also enjoyed many other recommendations around the island. Thanks for hosting us!

Teri and Ron were so kind throughout the whole process. The place itself is absolutely beautiful, right on the water. Technically the beach is public but it really doesn't feel like it. We loved spending time at the nearby sacred site as well. Overall, could not have asked for a better place to stay.

You will not regret booking this property! It is clean, comfortable and Teri is super helpful and responsive. Teri provided great tips for food on the island, responded immediately with any questions and is just a super kind person. You can tell that the owners love their property as it is well maintained and decorated. The bed is extremely comfortable and eating meals on the balcony is a must as the view is beautiful! Convenient to everything and super easy check in process. Try garden island coffee truck if you are a coffee lover! Venture into Hanalei for a wishing well coffee and acai bowl (and of course a shave ice too)! Thanks for sharing your place- we can’t wait to come back!

This condo delivers. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay. I spent a lot of hours researching different places in Kauai and I’m glad I picked this one. If you love to walk, there is a great path that goes on and on along the beach. The pool is clean, refreshing and not crowded. The grounds are kept immaculate with various types of tropical plants. The beach is so natural, yet inviting and easy to play in with shade! The condo exceeded my expectations in all regards. The owner and manager/housekeeper were both very responsive to any questions that I had. No complaints!!

Beautiful view with beach steps from the condo. This is a beautiful condo. The condo was very clean and beautifully updated. As soon as you walk in you are treated to the most stunning view of the ocean. This property is within walking distance to restaurants and The Coconut Market Place for shopping and groceries. Ron and Teri are amazing hosts. Always available to answer questions and share tips of places to visit and eat. Can’t wait to return to this little piece of paradise. Thank you Ron and Teri for sharing your amazing property with us!

We absolutely love this condo at Lae Nani and were excited to return to it for the second year in a row! The view cannot be beat, and the furnishings are lovely. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook great meals every day. Teri was exceptionally welcoming, and Marvis, the onsite manager, was so accommodating and a joy to meet. Lae Nani, and this condo in particular, has become our home-away-from home. We're already thinking about our next trip "home!"


Paula S.
April 2023
Teri and Ron’s condo at Lae Nani was just perfect for us. It is very well equipped… lovely kitchen and furnishings. Sitting on the lanai with morning coffees or at Happy Hour was a real treat. The view is gorgeous. We had a couple of rainy, windy days but sitting out on the covered lanai we could watch the waves roll in with no problem. The pool is great. Plenty of eating spots nearby. Would love to have a washer and dryer in the unit but really nothing to be done about that. All in all a perfect last five days for us. Mahalo Teri and Ron.

My wife of 20 years and I came to the island to celebrate our anniversary. This was such an epic stay! Many, many thanks to Teri and Ron for sharing your most delightful condo with us for the last several days! This beautiful location is on the 2nd floor of a well-maintained and gated community on the beach. The grounds were perfectly manicured, the foliage was stunning, and there were so many places to just relax and soak up the Hawaiian sun. Just a 2-minute walk from some really great restaurants and local shops, you really wouldn't ever have to leave the complex to have your best week ever. We feel so blessed to have found this property. Teri, if you ever decide to sell it, you MUST let us know! We'll be back for sure! Eric

We absolutely loved our stay at Teri’s oceanfront condo. The condo was well equipped and very clean. I just love it when vacation rentals carry high-quality kitchen equipment as I cook a lot. I also love that they encourage guests to leave dry food items as we had plenty of spices to cook with. Overall, 5 stars for everything! Thank you for letting us rent your property!

We spent seven days at this beautiful condo, enjoying the view, the ocean breezes, and the quiet nights -- falling asleep to the calming sound of the ocean. It was the perfect respite for us. The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable, and Cindy was great to work with. Just go to Lae Nani!!! (And book this condo!)

This is a lovely property. The condo is well maintained, comfortable and beautifully situated. The walking and cycling trails are an asset and there is shopping and activities within walking distance. We enjoyed a beautiful vacation at this property, the weather was great with occasional showers, usually at night.. We would definitely recommend Lae Nani in Wailua as a destination . Aloha!

The kitchen had almost everything needed to prepare meals. The only complaint we had was the mattress was very firm and not very comfortable. We had no communications with the property manager except for an email on numerous door and gate codes
