About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 2, possibly 3

Paradise awaits!!! We guarantee you'll be in awe when you walk in the front door of our condo and see the waves rolling in, just steps away from your living room window. There are very few locations at Lae Nani that you can enjoy unobstructed privacy from your ground floor lanai (no railings to peek through.) We are the only BUILDING #5 that doesn't have a noisy parking lot behind it, or the fenced pool to look over. We have highly upgraded this condo to be comfortable for your pleasure. It has a top of the line, new king size bed, and two twin beds in a Bali day-bed, set up in our living area. We have remodeled the bathrooms and kitchen with granite counters and convenient upgrades. The kitchen has fabulous ocean views from the kitchen sink *full-wall mirrors reflecting the ocean view from every angle. We provide high speed internet/wireless from ocean view desk, along with an iPod dock, an incredibly comfortable sectional sofa, facing the glorious ocean view for lounging or reading. Unlike a lot of other units, we are happy to share our fully-stocked beach closet that is complete with boogie boards, beach toys, snorkeling gear, golf clubs, extra beach chairs, etc. Our choice nightly is to to use the gas grills on property and dine on the best ocean view lanai in Kapaa. Our location, being on the ground floor, with no obstructing railings, buildings, driveways or sidewalks, provides the quiet privacy you need in a Kauai vacation. People that go once, always return. We have 30 years of guest books revealing the joy people have had in our incredibly magical little condo. If you're ready to find paradise, Lae Nani 513 is waiting for you!

The perfect setting on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

I was actually considering giving a bad review so this unit wouldn't be booked!!!!! Sharon is wonderful to deal with, and everything was even better than it looked on VRBO! Incredible setting, best location in the complex, amazing ocean sounds! The unit is so comfortable, great bed and bedding (which is important to me!). We loved that there were 2 bathrooms as my husband is an early riser, and I am not. He didn't have to come in the bedroom if I was asleep! We booked our 3 weeks for next year while we were here so we wouldn't miss out...most relaxing vacation ever!

Aloha and Mahalo!! Your condo was a huge blessing to us! Spectacular views, swimming, snorkeling and relaxing!! Your updated condo was very comfortable & had everything we needed to cook. The mattress was too soft for us but that is a very personal preference and a chance everyone takes when we stay away from home. The silverware drawer was broken and unusable. My husband tried to repair it but the oven door was in the way (we noticed the prior renters had the same problem). The master bathroom upper walls, fan, & shower needed cleaning as well as the patio window and all the mirrors throughout the condo. I love the Kapaa location as we were centrally located. "VIP Treats & Sweets" Bakery is just down the street. The owner Marlena is a sweetheart!! She offered to make me Kauai's famous "shortbread cookies" when I couldn't find them at the the Hanalei location that I got them last time!! And they were scrumdilicious!! Thank you again for allowing us to rent your beautiful condo. Shall we have the blessing of visiting Kapaa again, we will definitely consider renting form you!!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for letting me know about the broken stencil drawer in the kitchen. Please feel free to contact me while in the condo so I can have these things remedied quickly for you. I'm available any time, so please don't hesitate to let me know your needs. Also, I'm somewhat surprised to know the mirrors and windows weren't clean, as my cleaning staff have always prided themselves on this feature each and every cleaning. If the weather is humid, often moisture will develop, but otherwise, they should be spic and span. I of course will go over this with them, as well as the humidity/dust that accumulates in the bathroom areas. I hope you will return some day. Mahalo! Sharon

Perfect setting on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on Kauai - everything about the condo was perfect, from the amazing view and location on the ocean, good bed, comfortable furniture, equipped kitchen. (Next time we go we decided we’d buy a couple of tommy Bahama beach chairs from costco and leave them as our gift to future vacationers). It was quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. Sharon was a delight to deal with, we were armed with all the information we needed. We went north to Princeville, south to Poipu, saw the falls, the canyon, and were always happy to come home to our little oasis.

Incredible location for a life balancing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe the wonderful place Sharon provides for guests at her oceanfront condo. The location is perfect-walking distance to everything. I spent way too much time at lava lava drinking piña coladas but when I was not there or exploring the island I was sitting staring at the ocean from my ground floor deck.

This place is a gem- most of the time there was no one in line with your view of the ocean (it felt so private) and if there were families down by the ocean the sound did not carry.

The kitchen was well appointed, parking was easy, two bathrooms made mornings after a cup of kona coffee very convenient. If you go out your front door to the left, the area by the birds of paradise is covered with gold necked geckos. The ocean right out from has loads of beautiful fish-you just have to look in the rocks. The property is lush with plants and orchids. We spent ten blissful days here and it was worth every penny. I can not recommend this place enough from the fantastic communication from Sharon to the beautiful condo to the unbelievable location we will be returning for many years to come.

Stunning view of the ocean literally steps away from the lanai

  • 5 of 5

The only downside to this property is that guests do NOT adhere to the non-smoking property policy. This visit there were lots of smokers and it is not policed at all. We awoke in the night to a smoker standing right outside our bedroom window! Annoying.

Aside from that, the place is great. This condo sits on a grassy rise just above the beach. There are no traffic noises that can be heard from the nearby highway. Just the sounds of the sea, the birds, and the wind blowing through the palm trees. Paradise.

This unit feels like our beach house. The king sized bed is comfortable. There is plenty of furniture in the living room and the full wall mirrors in the dining and living rooms expand your view and create the illusion of a much larger space.

The property is VERY well maintained. There does not appear to be any deferred maintenance on any of the buildings. The downside of that is that there is always routine maintenance occurring. Fortunately for us, that maintenance was on other buildings during this visit. It can be loud with sawing, hammering, and banging. I’m not sure how you could find out ahead of time whether or not the building you’d be staying in would be affected by this.

This was the very first time we have ever stayed on the ground floor and we were hesitant about doing so. Since this unit sits up on a rise, it doesn’t feel like a ground level unit. It is also very bright inside.

Overall this was a 5-star vacation. We would definitely come back to this unit again.

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed our little bit of paradise in Kauai! I'm sorry that someone violated the non-smoking rule. That is difficult to monitor and very annoying. You can always call security regarding any violations in the future. Also, the painting of the buildings will be finished within months and shouldn't be an issue after completion. I hope you will return when all is peaceful and serene. We loved having you as our guest! Aloha and Mahalo!!
