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

***Road noise will NOT be an issue in this unit, as you may have noticed in reviews for other condos in this complex! We have just added a double-paned SOUNDPROOF inner window in the bedroom. It slides opens for breezes, and closes tightly at night for a totally quiet night's sleep. The only sounds you'll hear are the breaking ocean waves from the living room and the lanai!

And congratulations! You’re reading this because you’ve decided to visit Kauai, and turn your Hawaiian dreams into lifelong memories. You may be honeymooning, celebrating a milestone like retirement or anniversary, or marking a transition from one phase of life to another (any fellow empty-nesters out there?) Your goal is to experience tropical island-style comfort, and the graceful Aloha spirit, but avoid the busy mega-resort areas, crowded beaches and crammed parking lots.

Good news! You’ve found what you’re seeking right here at Wailua Bay View, on the east side of Kauai. This quiet, well-kept, boutique complex is only 10 minutes from the Lihue airport, in Kapaa (Ka-pa'-ah). Forbes magazine recently named Kapaa one of the 15 prettiest towns in the nation. You’re perfectly located for easy day trips over the entire island.

Our direct oceanfront condo (#214), has one bedroom (Cal-King bed), totally renovated bathroom, full kitchen, living/dining room (with sofa bed), and your own full size washer/dryer. Your private lanai is a stone’s throw to the crashing waves. It’s 750 sq. feet of paradise, with spectacular sunrises, panoramic views, relaxing sounds, and restful sleeps. The only thing missing is YOU! Remember to plan ahead, our calendar stays pretty full.

Unlike some listings here on VRBO, this is an owner operated and managed condo. As owners, we take your calls and answer your emails personally. We visit our condo 2 or 3 times a year to inspect and refurbish it, and spare no expense to keep everything in tip-top shape, including our recent complete bathroom renovation. (See the pictures!) Our efforts, combined with an excellent housekeeping staff and our on-island rep has proven to be the right combination for success. We spent many months and several trips to Hawaii to find our perfect vacation home, in an ideal location, and we absolutely love it! But enough of what we think, scroll down to the reviews. These reviews are submitted directly by guests to our listing. Also, look for reviews on other popular travel sites, there are several for our condo, Wailua Bay View #214.

There’s always plenty of free parking, free wireless high speed internet, 2 flat screen TV’s with cable, and a Blu-Ray player. There's a bedroom A/C, with ceiling and floor fans throughout. You’ll find coolers, beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrella. Peruse our many guide books, and the Guest Binder with recommendations for restaurants, tours, and boat trips we’ve personally experienced. We list the local Farmer’s Markets, including one a 5 minute walk away, at the Coconut Marketplace. You can also walk to restaurants, bakeries, shops, kayak and bike rentals places, and some great beaches. The spectacular, newly completed Kauai Bike/Walking Path is right out front.

Come see Kauai and explore an island paradise. You’ll hike, play golf, snorkel, sunbathe and shop, but the irresistible pull of our lanai, and the view of those mesmerizing waves, will call you back…you won’t want to leave! Feel the Aloha spirit yet? Enjoy your Hawaiian holiday!

About Owner

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

Why Kauai? The island of Kauai is known for incomparable beauty and rich lush landscapes. It offers diverse adventure, in an uncrowded atmosphere, and hearkens back to the Hawaii of old. 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!

Outstanding Condo

  • 5 of 5

Five stars in every respect! Super clean, wonderful bathroom with a great shower! Full size washer and drier was great. Bed was verrrrrry comfortable, we slept like logs. Ocean view, crashing waves and wonderful breezes will surely be missed. Great flat screen TV with some furnished dvd's. Location second to none, no matter where you were traveling. Oh, did I mentioned the great bakery across the street? There sticky buns are to die for, but get there early! Great communication with Crystal!

Owner's Response: Much mahalo for the 5 star review, you touched on all that we love about our condo...the crashing waves, the location, how efficient and caring our housekeeping staff are...and that bed! We happened to stay recently at a vacation rental here on the mainland, and did not like the uncomfortable bed. Sleeping well is very important, so thanks for noticing the steps we've taken to assure a comfortable bed at the condo. And that bathroom renovation we completed in 2013 was a great investment! Those sticky buns across the street...the cherry on top! I enjoyed our communications as well, come back soon, we'd love to host you again! Much Mahalo and Aloha, Crystal and Jim

Owner's Response: Thank you, Tom for your wonderful comments. I like the word you used...great! We think guests like you are GREAT!!! And thanks for rebooking already for your next Kauai vacation. It seems the inner soundproof window is doing exactly what it should--opening for breezes but closing tight for a quiet sleep. Can't wait to try it out during our own trip there in a few months. Much Mahalo and Aloha, Crystal and Jim

Great find.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here Jan.30-Feb 9 and loved it. Crystal is great at communicating. The view is fabulous. The condo was very neat and clean. Well stocked. Location was close to everything. Beach was just down the side walk. I would definitely recommend this for vacation. Even though it was close to the main road, they had air conditioning in the bedroom so you could close the window at night and block out the road noise. It was great!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review, and we're so glad you loved our sweet little piece of paradise! We are happy to share it, and the bonus is getting to know our wonderful guests! We have special ordered an inner soundproof double pane window, that will block out noise, but still open for breezes. Shipping has been delayed, but it should be installed by April. Hope you can come back again, we'd love to have you!! Mahalo, Crystal and Jim

Loved this place !!!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place !!! Had a blast, the condo was perfect for us, the sounds of the crashing waves could be heard in the bedroom it was awesome. Had all the extra supplies you could need down to the mosquito repellant which came in handy on my hike, only got bit 4 times which I heard wasn't bad for where I was.

Also Crystal was awesome , loved chatting with her on the phone. Also loved the books Crystal they came in handy and we watched Pearl Harbor on DVD . Marvis was great, very helpful, had fun talking with her. If I come to Kauai again I'm definitely calling Crystal to see if condo is available. Had dinner at Dukes which was my favorite dinner and their piña coladas in the pineapple were great. Also condo us centrally located to everything by far the best spot to be in.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Teresa! So glad you enjoyed the condo, thanks for taking the time to write a review! Our dear Marvis, our housekeeper and on-island rep, is such a blessing. She's a wealth of information for us and our guests, and takes care of our condo as if it's her own. We always keep the guidebooks up to date, in fact we're adding another one devoted to hiking on Kauai. Our DVD collection consists of many movies filmed in Hawaii, especially Kauai. We've even special ordered some older ones, but they're classics! Duke's is also one of our favorite places, especially for happy hour! I enjoyed talking to you too, I'm always happy to chat with our guests. I do hope you come back to Kauai, and stay with us again! Much Mahalo, Crystal and Jim

Excellent Condo on Kauai!!!

  • 5 of 5

This our second time to rent this condo and there are still not enough superlatives for this particular unit!

The fact that the owners are proactive with updates, with cleaning, and with making sure everything is in good working order, put this condo above a few we've visited. A condo on the ocean is a “score” for any owner. Making the effort to keep it nice: priceless! This time we enjoyed the update to the bathroom; it was excellent.

For us, the waves are the single most important thing when looking for somewhere to stay in Hawaii. Spending time out on the lanai listening to the waves and enjoying the great breeze was extremely relaxing.

The Kilauea Lighthouse was great to visit again. It is quite scenic. A favorite spot.

Loved the dinner cruise with Capt Dave. It was spectacular seeing multiple whales, many breaching. An amazing time of food and fun.

Our stay seemed to fly by. When the day came to pack up, it was extremely hard to leave. This condo is so comfortable. We weren't even on the plane home before talking about another visit.

Thank you so much for accommodating us! We couldn't have made a better decision. The location was spectacular. No detail was overlooked within the condo. We came home very relaxed.

Mahalo, Crystal and Jim!

Owner's Response: You're very welcome, and it's our pleasure to share our condo. Thanks for noticing our attention to detail, and I agree with your comment, it's a 'score' to have such a great location, those waves make it priceless to us too! Thanks for coming back for the second time, let's do a third! Mahalo!!

Ocean Front Gem

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our romantic getaway - it was ideally situated just steps from the water and walking distance to restaurants, bars, and shopping. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking utensils and grilling tools for the new gas grills in the common area. Although we did not use the pool, it looked quite inviting! The bed was incredibly comfortable and we had no trouble hearing the ocean from the room at night. Even the small details weren't left - there were OFF wipes in the cupboard (the mosquitoes were atrocious in Hawaii) and extra beach chairs, snorkeling gear, etc. on the lanai. The complex was small and quiet and the manager was very friendly when we checked in. Furthermore, communication with both the rental agency and the owner before we arrived was prompt and thorough. We would definitely return and recommend to anyone coming to Kauai!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the review! We visit twice a year, and work hard on updates, refurbishing, restocking, etc., and our guests notice! We don't use a rental agency as middle-man anymore. After two and a half years of learning the business, we realized all we needed was this VRBO listing, our great housekeepers and on-island rep, and our own efforts to take good care of our condo, and completely meet our guests needs. Our calendar stays very full, and many are repeat guests, so come back soon! We'd love to have you! Much aloha, Crystal and Jim

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!
