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 Kapaa

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 a few 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!

Beautiful views, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This was the first stay on the island of Kauai for my husband and I. We found Unit 123 at Lae Nani to be everything we were expecting and just as advertised. The unit was clean, spacious, well maintained and comfortable. It was great to have 1.5 baths so we each had our own space. The grounds are beautifully maintained, including the pool area and the view from the lanai over the pool to the ocean is lovely. We enjoyed eating many meals on the lanai and found everything we needed to prepare them in the well equipped kitchen. We very much appreciated having a safe in the bedroom to store our valuables. The condo is conveniently located for anything you might want to do on the Island whether it's sightseeing, shopping or dining out. The traffic through town in Kapaa is very slow so we frequently used the bypass route which was easily accessible and much quicker. We enjoyed shopping in Kapaa and trying the local restaurants. Our favourite was Hukilau Lanai close by. We highly recommend this unit and would love to stay again in the future.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and your honesty. We were very sorry the refrigerator caused a leak. Unfortunately, things do wear out and we are so happy to report that we take these maintenance issues seriously and have since replaced the fridge entirely. We hope you will consider us in the future. Mahalo.

perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 16 days. Everything was excellent. Have no complaints at all.

Enjoyed the condo, pool, ocean front, and location. Can't find a single thing

to complain about. I would come back and do it all over again and not

change anything. Probably the best vacation we ever had.

Thanks for everything. ( 2 retired senior citizens)

Even Better Than We Expected

  • 5 of 5

Having spent our time in Poipu and Princeville in the past, we were a bit unsure how well we would like staying on the Coconut Coast. That said, we absolutely loved Lae Nani. The location is convenient to the entire island and the property is ideally suited for a wide variety of guests, from individuals and couples to families. The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained, and the view from our lanai was exactly as pictured on the VRBO site. Unit 123 has been nicely updated, with fresh paint and carpet, and a very functional kitchen (my wife loved the Fiesta Ware dinnerware, etc). Both our host/owner (Kirsten) and her property manager (Cary) were readily available and responsive. We will definitely return to this spot during our next stay on the island.

Owner's Response: Aloha Steve, We are delighted to know that you were pleased with our condo setting, interior and ocean view from the lanai. It is so nice to have nice guests who appreciate our condo and the efforts of the manager and island representative/housekeeper! We look forward to your return to the Coconut Coast and Lae Nani, in particular! Mahalo, Kirsten and Kristine

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, beautiful view and comfortable condo. We recently stayed here for 10 days and it was much better than staying in a hotel. Every convenience was offered in the condo and it's just minutes from the airport. They were able to accommodate our request for early check-in which was much appreciated. Cary was easy to reach and able to help us with our questions. Highly recommend and you have really made us appreciate the advantages of VRBO!

Owner's Response: Aloha, Paul, Thank you for being our guest at Lae Nani this season. We are delighted that your stay with us was better than a hotel stay!! It is truly a convenient, beautiful setting and having a one-of-a-kind ocean view makes it very special. Our team has worked very hard to keep the condo clean, well stocked and ready for guests. We hope to see you again very soon. Our repeat guests have been with us many years. Mahalo, Kirsten and Kristine
