Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Wailua - Wailua Bay View Condominiums

1 Bdrm/1 Bath Direct Oceanfront Kauai Condo Rental, Bath Remodel, Stunning Views

Imagine this…a happy, blessed, hard-working couple who love the ocean, have a passion for Hawaii and a dream...a home by the sea. They visit all the major islands, looking for the perfect combination of oceanfront location, sound of breaking surf, and expansive unobstructed ocean views.

This story has a happy ending…we found our perfect condo at Wailua Bay View on quiet, lush Kauai! Located on the east side, near Kapaa, along the Royal Coconut Coast, it's perfect for visiting Poipu in the south, and Hanalei in the north. The complex has a quiet, private feel and lovely gardens, and sits perched right above beautiful Wailua Bay. Our condo (#214) has 1 bedroom and a beautifully renovated bathroom; add a full kitchen, dining/living room and lanai, and you get 750 sq. feet of paradise! Spectacular sunrises, relaxing oceanfront sounds and vistas, and restful sleeps are waiting for you. You'll sense the pride of ownership, feel the Aloha spirit, and hear the crashing waves the moment you cross the threshold!

We visit two or three times a year to replace linens, make refurbishments and inspect that everything is in perfect working order. We spare no expense to make it comfortable, clean, efficient, and cozy. When we can’t be there, we offer it to special people like you! As owners, we communicate directly with you, to answer questions, and assist you in planning a fabulous getaway.

Read on for more details, or just skip down to the most important part, the reviews. We've stayed in many places using VRBO ourselves, and we'd base our rental decisions on current, positive reviews from actual guests in their own words. That’s exactly what you’ll find in our reviews, all submitted directly by guests to our listing. We've added a few from our guest book too, which is full of glowing comments. Our first review on this listing is quite special, it's from a certain blue-eyed VRBO bear! (Check out www.vrbo.com/stayedhere) Look for other reviews on other travel sites - there are several for our unit (Wailua Bay View #214).

There's plenty of free parking, a full size in-suite washer/dryer, full size appliances in the well-equipped kitchen, a bedroom A/C, 2 ceiling fans, free wi-fi, and a brand new spa-like total bathroom remodel. The only thing missing is…YOU! But plan ahead, our calendar stays pretty full.

In our unit you’ll find coolers, beach chairs, beach umbrella, swim towels, and sometimes water shoes and snorkel gear. There are 2 Vizio flat screen TV's, a DVD player, and a CD player/IPod dock. We provide a Guest Binder with recommendations for restaurants, tours, and boat trips we've personally experienced. You'll find a list of the local Farmer’s Markets, including one at the nearby Coconut Marketplace, a short 5 minute walk north.

The spectacular Kauai Bike Path runs right in front of this complex. Rent bikes nearby, and see why Kapaa was recently named one of the 15 prettiest towns in the nation by Forbes magazine.

Mahalo and Aloha! We hope you enjoy your Hawaiian holiday!

About Owner

My husband and I grew up in Northern California, and we love the ocean! Fortunately his 20 year naval career allowed us to often live near water; on both coasts and 2 countries in Europe. We've been blessed with the opportunity to travel extensively, and stay in many different types of accommodations, the good and the not so good! We know what works!

The island of Kauai is known for incomparable beauty, rich lush landscapes, and pristine reefs. It offers diverse adventure, in an uncrowded atmosphere. It hearkens back to the Hawaii of old, before tourism was widespread. We’re happy to share our condo, and spread the Aloha!

Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why Owner chose Wailua

Wailua Bay View Unit 214 offers the oceanfront location we love, with privacy and convenience. It allows you to enjoy real Hawaii, with all the comforts of home!

What makes this condo unique

Within seconds of walking into this condo, as you approach the sliding doors to the lanai, you will experience the breezes, the roar of the surf, and the wide open ocean in front of you! You'll watch surfers, paddle boarders, and sometimes outrigger canoe races! Watch for the occasional turtle bobbing in the waves, and whales in the winter. At night, you'll be lulled to dreamland by the sound of the crashing waves. The moon rising and reflecting off the water will be stunning! (Try to come during a full moon!) You will feel right at home, and won't want to leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I don't know when one of my "spur of the moment" trips has ever turned out so smoothly. I attribute it all to my hosts.

First, your vacation condo was available; second, it is so perfectly stocked! Kitchen items, beach items, and what a comfortable place to hang. The bed is very comfortable. Thank you for the high end sheets, towels, dinner dishes and silverware.

You have thought of everything and you should know that it hasn't gone unnoticed. Your perseverance is looking for the perfect view, location, and atmosphere completely paid off!

Perfect oceanfront condo!!

  • 5 out of 5
I am so thankful I did my research because this condo was the perfect fit for me and my husband. Beautiful grounds and location. We walk through the front door and see the ocean and hear the waves crashing all day and all night. The king-size bed was super comfortable. The remodeled bathroom is gorgeous. Having a washer and dryer was a treat. The kitchen had everything we needed. We watched the amazing sunrise from the lanai every morning with our coffee. We also used the beach chairs and towels and ice chest. This condo lacks nothing. We went zip lining and I realized last minute that I should have gotten some insect repellant. I looked on the shelf and they had OFF repellent wipes!! Really? They have thought of everything. Love, love, love this condo, and we will stay here again when we go back to Kauai. Highly recommend this perfect paradise!!!!

Great location and wonderful accomodations

  • 5 out of 5
Extremely clean, updated and tropical themed furniture. The kitchen was fully equipped, the bed even has a foam topper and there was an abundance of towels. Snorkle gear, beach chairs...all included! The ocean breeze was fantastic and the view from the lanai was out of this world! We actually slept in the living room and were lulled to sleep by the ocean waves - this condo is right on the beach! You can walk on the beach and enjoy your coffee in the morning watching the sun rise. The pool was very clean and while we were there, not very busy - they have 2 BBQs in the pool area. The location is excellent, some awesome restaurants within a few blocks - bakery, mexican food, pizza and asian. Great to have a few cocktails and then just walk a block home. The owner was helpful regarding rental cars, places to eat and snorkling recommendations. I would highly recommend this rental and would stay here again!

Centrally located, Fully furnished Gem

  • 5 out of 5
If you're looking for a perfectly located up-dated condo to relax and see Kauai, you can't do better than this beauty. Just south of downtown Kapaa, it's an easy ride to anywhere on the island and just a short drive to grocery stores(24 hr Safeway and Foodland), restaurants(Hukilau Lanai is a must and the Lappert's ice cream is great), beaches, etc. My sister stayed in a different condo in this building and when she saw this unit told me how lucky we were. It's a good idea to sleep on the very comfortable sofa bed to listen to the waves at night. To top it all off, as other reviews have stated, it is the most fully equipped condo we've ever stayed at. Great place.

Super well equipped lodging

  • 5 out of 5
We rented 3 condos and a hotel over 7 weeks in Hawaii and this was, by far, the best equipped. They had coolers, beach equipment, chairs, everything to make life easy without dragging half your possessions with you. The unit was spacious, clean, and the owners were very helpful and flexible when a hurricane changed our plans for our last day. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Well thanks Larry! We were glad to accommodate you, and make sure your last day was enjoyable. Thanks also for noticing our attention to detail for the "little things" that make a stay carefree. When we visit two or three times a year, we upgrade and replace anything that needs it. So our sweet little condo was the best of the four places in your 7 week trip to the Islands...you bet we will welcome you back!! Mahalo and Aloha, Crystal and Jim

Very Comfortable But Very Hot

  • 3 out of 5
First, let me say the condo was very clean and all that was needed was provided. Only the bedroom is air conditioned which is normally sufficient; however, if you plan a stay in Septmeber, perhaps a fully air conditioned unit would be best. We would have to leave the condo or retreat to the bedroom to get relief from the heat. I would highly recommend the unit if your stay is planned at a time when the weather is cooler.

Owner's Response: Dear Vonda, Thank you for highly recommending our unit, as you found it very clean, and everything you could possibly need was provided. Kauai experienced an unusual weather pattern this September, with an absence of the cooling trade winds, and a spell of tropical humidity. We're sorry you were uncomfortable, and hope you'll allow us to host you again sometime. We are adding an extra fan during our trip next month, to augment the two ceiling fans already in place, just for times like this. Having A/C throughout the entire condo is problematic due to building constraints. Your review title says it all, "Very Comfortable!" Mahalo and Aloha, Crystal and Jim

Awesome Stay With Strange Happenings

  • 4 out of 5
First, the awesome:

* view
* how the sound of the waves lull you while in bed, relax you while on the terrace
* proximity to the nearby beach
* walking distance to Passion Pastries

Now, the strange:

* alarm went off and a neighbor with a key (unbeknownst to us) went in our room to turn it off, then stopped us when we came back from a day out to tell us about it
* police knocked on our door at three in the morning, claiming to have received a 911 call and hangup from our room (wasn't us)
* stomping overhead during noise hours; once lights out hours came, stomping ended, only to return the next day

Overall, it was a great stay and we would be happy to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Joy, we're so glad you enjoyed the view, the sounds of the ocean, and the nearby bakeries...those are some of our favorite things too. Our long-time trusted housekeeper, Marvis, had to use the emergency key to go in and turn off a very loud clock radio alarm that must have been set by mistake. The erroneous 911 call was a strange happening, and had never occurred in our unit or any other condo in the complex before. We had the phone company come out and replace a short in the wall jack. We're sorry the upstairs unit had a heavy walker, you are the first one to complain about that. We're so glad you said overall it was a great stay, and you'd come back again. Love to have you! Mahalo, Crystal and Jim

Location

10 min. from airport, along the Royal Coconut Coast. Halfway between Poipu and Princeville. Close to the Wailua River, with kayaking and boat tours to the Fern Grotto. 5 min. from Smith Family Gardens and their famous Luau. Hike the Sleeping Giant mountain, or just relax on the beach.

Notes:
Restaurants, bakeries, shops, and the Coconut Marketplace are all within walking distance. You're steps away from the half-mile long Wailua Beach, which encompasses Wailua Bay and Wailua River State Park. There's a long, paved beach walk/bike trail right in front of the complex. You can walk along the beach to the north, to a keiki (children's) pool, and a sacred heiau (ancient Hawaiian temple). Only 5 minutes away from Lydgate Park, with protected snorkeling ponds and a fantastic playground. Wailua Bay View is all about the 'bay view'! And although you can swim in Wailua Bay, it is known for swells and riptides. Not for novices! That's why the local surfers and bodyboarders love it, and they are fun to watch!
