Why Linda Herceg chose Kauai

Lae Nani Resort is a long time favorite place on Kauai and has an ancient Hawaiian ceremonial site that is visited by many travelers worldwide. It is also a very popular wedding back drop too. Living here is a special treat.

What makes this condo unique

Staying on the east side of Kauai is best because you can access the north shore one day and then the south shore or west side another without getting too tired driving. Of course, no need to go anywhere if you want a great beach and relaxation with many restaurants and shopping you can walk to. Amazing sunrises and a quiet retreat.........!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our 8th trip to Kauai, and we had the best 15 days ever! The condo is great and all Linda's special touches make it really nice..

The view is awesome and we made it up for every sunrise. My husbands favorite place to eat is the Bull Shed. He likes the prime rib there.

God willing, we will be able to return again next year.

Peaceful, Comfortable Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic place to stay. Linda was extremely responsive and helpful. The condo is spotlessly clean, spacious, great bed, well equipped with everything you need (except a kettle for this tea granny; but no big deal!) The air conditioning is great to have, and hard to find on Kauai. We only used it once during our week as the weather was quite cool; it worked perfectly. Lae Nani is a beautiful property in a great location. You can walk for quite a way north along the beach/path in front of other resorts. The surf was very high during our visit and it's not the world's safest area for swimming; however the kids' ocean pool is awesome and created a bit of a breakwater beside it which was nice for a swim/boogie board. We stayed our first week in Poipu and preferred the Kapa'a/Coconut coast area. Very laid back island with super-friendly people and fantastic scenery. Trouble with these great reviews is...this condo is already booked for when we want to go next year! Thank you Linda.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind words! We are so glad you liked our condo better than the hotel in Poipu. Our ocean changes frequently. Sometimes it is like a lake and almost Purple in color. You got to see the beautiful waves and turquoise and white ones! We like them both. Sorry we are booked next year but maybe in the future you will return to our condo in Paradise....Mahalo Nui Loa, Linda

Good location, but poor experience

  • 2 of 5

The property was in good condition, and the location was very convenient to getting to the rest of the island.

We did have several issues while we stayed. The owner of the condo had a pest control service done on ones of the days we stayed there. While we didn't care for that, she did leave a note letting my wife and I know they were coming.

The second issue was that without notice a maintenance person came in the condo and did some repairs to the front door. He left a mess after he left, with screws and repair items on the floor. Furniture near the door was also moved out of place. My wife and I were shocked to see someone had been in the condo while we're gone, and we were upset about it. We contacted the owner and she apologized. She offered to give us an $100 refund, and we accepted. Regardless of the refund, what went on with the peat control service and the maintenance person was not what we signed up for when we rented the condo.

The 1/2 bath also smelled like mildew, snd the exhaust fan was dirty and filled with lint.

While our stay was nice, we would not stay there again.

Owner's Response: So sorry you were unhappy. We try our best to give you a very clean and enjoyable experience. You never mentioned anything about mildew in the bathroom and neither did anyone else before or after your stay. The pest control people did not enter your condo, they only left a message saying when they would be coming. Our security people always come with the pest control to make sure you are home or do or don't want spraying. The front door hinge was rusty and making a loud noise, so I asked for it to be changed. They thought it was approved by you....sorry, my fault for not making it clear to them to wait until next check out day. So I offered you a $100 gift for your distress. The clean up was minor near the door and a small cabinet not put back. Thank you for sending me a picture of that. I have notified maintenance to do a better cleanup...not like them. You told me the rest of your stay was great....not sure why you chose to give such a bad review. First one in seven years of very happy guests. We take this very personal.... so we are very sad you were unhappy.

40th Anniversarry trip

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks in Hawaii on 3 different islands. This is our 4th trip to Hawaii and this was probably our favorite. We began in Kauai and this trip rented a condo in Kapaa.

From the initial contact with Linda in March (make sure you plan way ahead because this condo rents quickly!) until the time we left January 12th, everything went smoothly. The communication is outstanding. The condo was immaculate, comfortable, and very well equipped. The kitchen was amazing with any utensil, pan, or appliance you could need or want. We did very little eating in, but appreciated having the ability to cook if we were so inclined. There are air conditioners in the condo. We found opening the windows in the bedroom early evening and keeping them open all night, we were very comfortable. It was wonderful to wake up to the birds chirping in the morning.

Hawaii has public beaches and weekends the beach was a bit more crowded than during the week. We were at the condo very little and explored the island. The condo is located in such a way it is very easy to go different directions every day and get to truly feel how different each area is.

The pool is gated and can only be used by owners and their guests. We did not use the pool, but could see it was cleaned often and well maintained. The grounds were the nicest we have ever seen on any of our trips to any of the islands. Absolutely gorgeous!

We had one issue. After landing, picking up the car, and going to Costco, we arrived at the condo at 10:00 PM. That's 3:00 AM for this over 60 year old couple. The lighting in the condo complex is poor and we found it difficult to see the condo numbers on the signs. Linda had the outside light on and there was a small flashlight that drew us to the door. It was difficult see the signs and I would suggest you arrive before dark.

Thank you Linda for allowing us to enjoy Kauai from your condo that is perfectly located to explore all that Kauai has to offer. The welcome gift of chocolates and coffee were a real treat. Mahalo.

Extremely clean with lots of personal touches!

  • 5 of 5

We came to this beautiful island for our honeymoon. We started at the Grand Hyatt and then booked this Condo for 6 nights. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the condo more. The beach and pool view cannot be beat. We also enjoyed the location, central to many hikes and beaches. The condo was immaculate and we wanted for nothing! Will be returning again!
