We really enjoyed our stay. It was the perfect size for us. The views of the ocean from the lanai were amazing. Also, being able to hear the ocean waves from inside the unit and out on the lanai was wonderful. The roosters were the only downside as they crowded as early as 4 am. We had to shut the windows so as not to hear them as loud. It would have been nice to have easier access to the tennis/pickle ball court. You could not play after 4 because you need the key from the office which closed at 4

Kaha Lani was the perfect location for our first visit to Kauai. My husband and I wanted a quiet condo as close to the ocean as possible and away from major resorts. This VRBO condo, with its wonderful views from the lanais and easy access to the beach at Lydgate Park was perfect for us. We're looking forward to returning next year.

Property is very good with new appliances and recent renovations. Ocean view from the lanai is also a bonus! Well equipped with boogie boards and beach chairs. Pool is excellent as it is heated. Nice to have sufficient garbage bags and dishwasher tabs for our entire stay! The gift for anything that was missing for our stay was a nice touch! We were fortunate that someone chased the roosting chickens out of the trees outside our bedroom! Reduced early morning noise significantly. Location next to Lydgate Park is nice but a long walk for any restaurants or shopping. Property Manager was very responsive and easy to work with!

My wife & I have been to the Big Island several times, this was the first time to Kauai! Not to be missed! Mike & Kim were pleasant and easy to work with. The condo had everything we needed. During our stay, the condo overall was good (no A/C needed with the trade winds), however, the cleaning staff could pay a little more attention to the tile floors, a couple of bath towels and oven mitts (all were a little soiled). Overall a very good experience at this location!

This spot has the most incredible views, convenient location to beach, beautiful walking paths, and nearby shops and restaurants. It’s quiet, clean, and has every amenity you need including easy laundry in a nearby building within the complex. Highly recommend and plan to return.

This is a beautiful property. There are units closer to the ocean than others. Look at the property map before deciding on the unit available. We would have picked one closer to the ocean. There is some traffic noise in the morning.

The condo was just like the photos—comfortable and well appointed—but it was the location that stole the show. Looking out at the ocean from our patio was a dream. The pool was lovely, and when we walked down to the beach, we often had it to ourselves. Also, the rental company was accommodating and quick to respond. We would definitely stay here again!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Relatively small older top floor 1 BR unit centrally located with a great view and well maintained inside. Small hot water heater means no more than 5 minutes of use at a time. Sewage treatment facility to the North of property noted when winds are calm. Intermittent homeless traffic on path through front of property related to a homeless camp to the South. Cleaning fee should be enough to clean ocean facing windows between renters. Unshielded security light brightly illuminates deck all night. Gross sticky TV remote should be replaced.

We enjoyed everything about our stay here (well, except the roosters but that’s a Hawaii problem). From start to finish it was easy. Communication with Kate was great, the view was fabulous, the complex was well maintained. The beach in front was quiet almost all the time, and you could walk as far as you can see. Easy access to the east and south shores and all the great stuff to see and do. The unit was clean, well cared for, and thoughtfully stocked with the things you need. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for sharing your home with us, Kate!

A very quiet and calm area of Kawaii with walking of the beach. Great communication with the host, Kate. We attended the Smith family luau which Kate recommended. It was by far the best luau that I’ve been to to date course. I’ve only been to four so keep that in mind :-)

This condo provided the perfect location for our family of 4 to explore Kauai and experience its many amazing offerings. It's easy to go west, south or north from here in a short time so you can experience the diverse landscapes and activities. Highlights included kayaking, hiking, surfing and a boat tour. During our down time the unit provided a great respite with terrific amenities, an incredible view and easy beach access. Thanks for providing such a top notch spot--we will definitely be back!

My husband and I fully enjoyed our time at Kaha Lani. The unit is clean and very well-appointed. As others said, the lanai is the best part of the condo, with extraordinary views and comfortable seating. We loved the location, close to a grocery store and lots of restaurants, with easy access to the North Shore and South Shore. Anyone who goes to Kauai should be prepared for the presence, and sound of the chickens that are everywhere.

House had all the necessities. Great laundry appliances too. Linens and beds were comfortable, not the highest quality but still comfortable. Really lovely pool! Walking distance to the lava pools and park at Lydgate and the Bridges. Amazing sunrises too! Would totally stay again! Oh and lots chickens, kitties and roosters. They were not an issue at all. Fun to watch. The Lanaii closest had tons of beach supplies too!

Excellent rental, the best we’ve had in Kauai! Very well appointed condo close to north and south parts of the island. Nice beach out front with wonderful views. We saw whales and dolphins from the lanai.

This is a quiet ,beautifully appointed one bedroom condo that welcomes you each morning with a spectacular sunrise.The beach extends on both sides as far as you can see. We walked and biked for miles from our unit Lydgate Beach is a five minute walk,and the Hilton is a 15 minute walk to a beach bar .Chad provides a large bin of beach chairs, coolers,toys etc. Check in was a breeze. Start to finish this was a delightful experience.

The property seems very aged and barely maintained. It is nice to have a kitchen but for the price of over $800/night I could have chose to stay at a five star establishment in Oahu. Property managers responded but they didnt check with me if it was fine to charge me $350 extra for a late checkout request. Condo was so small and we were cramped for room, it was also very noisy as we could hear other guests stomping upstairs as well as the roosters that are all over the property. There is a beach trail but just less than a mile away there is a campsite that looked extremely sketchy and unsafe. Beach was not at all maintained and had full of dead branches and debris. Beach front view was nice but nothing special to write home about.

the apartment was great, it has a semi-ocean view and although the beach directly at the front is not easily swimmable in the winter due to currents, it is a short 10 min walk from a protected lagoon with lots of fish. good location, with many amenities and the apartment is very well organized.

We loved the view from the kitchen, living room and master bedroom. My husband and I loved waking up to see the ocean! We even saw a whale or two from our lanai. The condo has everything you need for a day at the beach with the boogie boards, chairs, a cooler and lots of toys. Perfect spot on the island to visit the north and the south.

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: We loved everything about our stay. The view from this unit is incredible and sunrises are magical. It's a quick walk to a wonderful swimming beach and we were thrilled to find a fully-stocked locker with boogie boards, snorkel sets, and beach chairs. The unit is overall very well-equipped (for cooking, outdoor activities, etc) and we especially appreciated the personal touches like the welcome bag of Kauai treats. We found the location of Kaha Lani to be ideal, given that we could easily access Kapa'a (which has a ton of shops and restaurants) and also reach the other parts of the island in under 30 minutes. Remax provided great service from start to finish, which made the process easy and smooth. They also connected us with an on-island concierge who helped us book activities. We would return in a heartbeat.

The property was beautiful and an amazing view. The pictures don’t do it justice. The unit is centrally located and and easy to get anywhere on the island. The beds were comfortable, kitchen well stocked with everything we needed to cook. It was nice to have a washer and dryer in the unit. Close to the beach. We snorkeled at Lydgate which was just a few minutes and easy walk. The pool was heated and very clean. We didn’t even mind the kitties or the chickens! The property provided beach towels and beach chairs which were put to good use. It was low 80s during our stay so as long as you kept the sliding glass doors open and the fans on inside the house it stayed cool enough. Loved the shower heads (I want to put in my house!). Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Our unit was lovely and we felt right at home. Ground floor, oceanfront! We had a non-working toilet in one of the bathrooms on arrival and Garden Island Properties took care of it right away. Two days later a new toilet was installed in the main bathroom. So glad we had the powder room to use. We definitely will be back. This was our second stay at Kaha Lani, first was in 2019. Beautiful setting. THanks so much.
