About The Owner

We live and work in fast-paced Southern California where long commutes and stress are a part of our every day life. At the end of each demanding year we seek a peaceful, beautiful location to regenerate and inspire us for the coming year. We also appreciate the ease of access to activities and site seeing that Lae Nani has being on the East central side of the island.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why The Owner chose Kauai

While returning to Kauai each year, we realized that the ocean, tropical breezes and slower pace were the best medicine for our busy lives. We found that this beautiful condo offered 24/7, gorgeous views of Wailua Bay, the mountains, and the ocean in a serene, tropical setting. It was a jewel awaiting us in an area that was reminiscent of old time Hawaii.

What makes this condo unique

After our plane trip, we like driving only 7 minutes north from the airport to reach our exotic, relaxing destination. It is even nicer to be so convenient to all the activities and sight-seeing options. We love our beautiful, private space where we can choose to meet other people or be alone. Our lanai is a perfect place to sip coffee or entertain guests while being surrounded by the sound of the ocean and the swaying palm trees. Since our condo has a full kitchen, Hd-TV, WiFi, towels, etc, we can easily cocoon and bring less luggage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in Kristine's Lae nani condo, PERFECT! It is beautifully furnished, spacious, spotlessly clean and what a view! The Lae Nani condo resort is perfectly placed for exploring the stunning island of Kauai. The gardens and pool are very well cared for and the staff are very friendly. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodation. Thank you for sharing your second home. Can't wait to return next year!

We have stayed in several VRBO rentals and this unit is one of the best we have visited! The condo is like new and very tastefully decorated. There was nothing that we needed during our stay that wasn't furnished. The unit is within walking distance of several very nice restaurants(I highly recommend the Hukilau Lanai) When viewing the photos remember that a camer lens distorts distance. The unit is actually closer that the pictures depict. Have no concern about no A/C. The ocean breeze along with the ceiling fans make for very pleasant temps. We can't wait until we can return to this lovely unit.

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Hawaii and now we know for sure that paradise DOES indeed exist! We arrived at night and could hear the ocean, but the view we woke up to absolutely took our breath away - wow!! The condo was clean, we didn't need anything at all during our stay - the kitchen was well-equipped with what we needed so our only trips to the store were for the food we needed. There's a nice pizza place within walking distance (Bobby V's) and it's really good! We also walked over and enjoyed some live music and happy hour at the resort right next door. The grounds are extremely well-maintained and they are busy every day keeping everything neat and tidy. The shingles were replaced on the entire unit on the Monday after we arrived, but it only lasted 1 day and we were gone during most of it, so it wasn't a problem - these things have to be done! The 'only' issue we had is that it was exceptionally hot while we were there and if there had even been air conditioning in the bedroom/bathroom while we were sleeping and after showering, it would have been nice. Some nights were breezy and comfortable, but there were others where it was pretty miserable. That's the ONLY thing I would have changed about our visit to 'paradise' was to have air conditioning in the bedroom! We are looking forward to returning to Kauai again and hope to stay here again as well!

Kristine is wonderful to work with (great response-time and very easy transaction). Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!!

Owner's Response: Aloha, Laura and Randy, Thank you for being my guests at Lae Nani this September. I am very pleased to know that the condo was clean, the view was spectacular and that you enjoyed yourselves. I appreciate your suggestion about air conditioning during this very hot month. For the past 10 years, the condo association has not allowed air conditioning. However, I will request that the board members of the condo association reconsider their decision to allow air conditioning as ceiling fans and portable fans are not always sufficient to cool the condo. I will get back with you after the November board meeting. Thank you for being my guests. I look forward to your return to Kauai and my condo. Mahalo, Kristine

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary in Kauai. We decided to stay at 123 Lae Nani via VRBO as we have stayed in many VRBO properties in the past and have had positive results. Both the island of Kauai and 123 Lae Nani exceeded our expectations. The condo was perfect. The view off the Lanai is breathtaking. The kitchen is well stocked and the bed is very comfortable. The grounds are immaculate. We walked around a lot of other condo and hotel properties and nothing compares to Lae Nani. Another great feature is Lae Nani's location. You are centrally located to all points of the island. We drove to every sector of the island and they are all easily accessible. We truly had a magical vacation! One more plus ... Kristine was very easy to work with. The whole process from start to finish was simple. We plan to come back to Kauai and when we do, we will hope to stay again at 123 Lae Nani.

So much to see and do. Weather was perfect. Everything lush and gteen. Condo lovely. Some sites very expensive to visit. Music every night I expect came from a neighboring bar. Okay except sometimes for sleeping. Guess that's what we get for going, going, going. Need quiet to sleep sometimes! Thanks Hawaii for your beauty and relaxed way of life.

Amazing Condo Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo in early March 2016. Our experience here was amazing. The condo itself is large and spacious. Plenty of room for two people. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the equipment you need to cook breakfast, lunch or dinner. The bed was comfortable. The deck had a view out ovr the swimming pool and into the ocean. It was an awesome place to just sit, relax, and take in the beauty of Kauai.

The property is located just south of Kapa'a. It is quick to get to Lydgate park, which is one of the best beaches in Kauai. The location on the eastern side of the island makes it easy to head, north (Hanalei and Princeville), south (Poipu), or west (Hanapepe).

I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for an affordable and excellent place to stay in Kauai.

Amazing view and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful apartment for 9 nights/days last week Nov/first week Dec and we absolutely loved it! The view is amazing! The lanai is very specious and we spent most of the time on the lanai enjoying the view and relaxing. The apartment was clean and spacious with great air flow - no need for air conditioner at all. The kitchen was well equipped. The grounds in the complex are very well kept and the pool is pretty big - you can easily swim and never crowded. The location of the apartment is excellent - right in the middle of the island so both North and South shore and all points of interest are very convenient and fast to get to. Grocery store is very close and some restaurants are easy to walk to. We absolutely loved our stay in this apartment. The owner was very nice to work with and answered all the questions. Would love to go back one day soon.
