Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Kapaa - Lae Nani

Beach Front, Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

We welcome you to our beach front home on the Island of Kauai!

Lae Nani is a premier resort located on the east side of Kauai. This location means that you have easy access to both the North Shore (Napali Coast) and South Shore (Poipu, Waimea Canyon and beyond). Close to the resort, there are several grocery stores and shops to provide for your needs and there are several fantastic restaurants within walking distance.

Our top (3rd) floor, two-bedroom renovated condo has all you need to enjoy your time here. When our family purchased the condo, before it was constructed, the builder advised purchase of our unit as the best one of the entire complex. It's unique location will give you private views of the ocean from not only one lanai off the main living area but also a lanai off the master bedroom. Because it is on the top floor, there is no noise from neighbors above. The building is situated in such as way that you will wake to the beautiful morning sun as it lights the Lae Nani gardens and ocean out front. In the afternoon, when the sun heats up, the angle of the building allows for enjoyment of the trade wind breezes as they flow through the screen doors and are stirred by the ceiling fans inside the unit.

Because we are beach front (not just ocean view) you have an unobstructed 180 degree view of the ocean and the sand is only about 75 feet from the condo. There is a small keiki (children's) pool out front that is protected and perfect for small children who are ready to explore what the ocean has to offer. For adults and older kids we have good snorkeling. There is also a pool for Lae Nani guests. Most days you will look out to see surfers catching a great wave and endangered monk seals occasionally rest on the beach in front.

We listen to the feedback of our guests and are continually working to improve our condo. We travel ourselves and like to provide comforts that we enjoy at other places we stay. Our condo is family-friendly, with a portable crib, stroller, booster seat, games and books for children to enjoy. Free secured wireless internet, Netflix, Amazon Prime, blue ray player, iPod docking station and a phone for you to use not only for local calls but also long distance to the US and Canada. Our kitchen is stocked with a few extras you may not find in other condos, like coffee, spices and staples such as oil and vinegar. We provide good knives and high quality utensils. Our beds and linens are comfortable and we stock your bathroom with locally-made beautiful soap. We have wood and tile flooring throughout and beautiful artwork for you to enjoy.

As you relax listening to the sound of the surf, you can plan your day, knowing you are never far from adventure.

Keywords: Our unit is a 3rd floor walk-up with two lanai's (decks); one off the living room and one off the master bedroom. The ocean is less than 75 feet from the building.

About Barb and Ric Berry

The unit is owned by Ric and Barb Berry and it was originally purchased by Ric's dad, Lang. Our office manager, Penny, does a fantastic job of managing the reservations and will always pass things along to us that need our personal attention. Ric is currently on the Board of Directors for Lae Nani and working on the preservation of some land we own on the north shore, so he is frequently on the Island for business purposes. Our kids have grown up loving Hawaii and our wish is that they will keep unit 535 in the family for generations to come.

Why Barb and Ric Berry chose Kapaa

This unit has been in the family since the original construction. Ric's father inspected the property prior to building and was advised by the developer to purchase our unit as it would have (he felt) the best view and location in the complex.

What makes this condo unique

The East side of Kauai (also known as the Coconut Coast) is unsurpassed in location and access to the rest of the island. The weather here is in between the wet zone (North Shore) and the dry zone (South Shore). We have a number of great restaurants within walking distance.

The condo was great. Wood floors throughout and a second lanai for relaxing and enjoying the view. We enjoyed our stay and would come back again.

Perfect condo! Wonderful views, beautiful grounds, and oh so peaceful...

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This was a terrific find, we felt so lucky. The views are stunning, beachfront, with 180 degree view of ocean stretching from one end of the lanai to the other, and over to the other bonus smaller lanai off the master bdrm.

And so peaceful and quiet! The whole cluster of buildings is on a quiet road, is gated, and this particular unit is well away from the parking lot and road, as well as being at the end of an end building, so no foot traffic either. Remarkably quiet area. It also felt quite private, even sitting out on the lanai. We sat out all day on the lanais a couple of times, sometimes in the sun and sometimes seeking the shade, we had both.

The unit was nicely and recently decorated. There were lots of Hawaiian touches but it wasn't kitschy. We liked the local type art decorating it. The beds and pillows were fine, the bedrooms were large. The bathrooms were great too. No air conditioning was ever needed or desired -- the ceiling fans always did the trick along with leaving the louvred windows open. There were also a number of desktop fans around too in the rooms, but we never needed them. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery and cooking things, the appliances were excellent and up to date. No pesky Hawaii ants either, yay!

If you are renting it, check out the stock in the kitchen for spices, condiments, staples etc., and the closet above the washer and drier for shampoos etc. I never thought to check that closet and bought hair products, and so at the end of the stay added them to the selection already there. A closet door outside on the left of the lanai contains outdoor things such as mats, coolers, beach stuff, umbrella, chairs etc.

The grounds are a botanical garden, meticulously kept, yet with broad expanse of lawn. Then a nice sandy beach with a reef break creating effectively a shallow pool, perfect for kiddies as well as adults who don't want to go into the heavier surf. The beach was never too busy, and seemed to be used by just the local condo tenants.

The location is good, lots of restaurants within a block or two, grocery stores just several minutes car drive away.

This was the best vacation condo I've stayed in. It was a perfect combination of a thoughtfully stocked and well equipped unit with marvelous beachfront, wonderful views, and highly prized peacefulness. Many thanks to the owner and property manager who were all very responsive, helpful and very friendly.

Highly recommended!!!

Spectacular Beach Front Condo

  • 5 of 5

This unit was absolutely perfect. It was in a gated area for safety. It was clean and bug free. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, classes, pots, pans, silverware and utensils for all your cooking needs. The refrigerator was in great shape and had water in the door, a nice bonus. The showers were clean and had great water pressure. The unit also has washer and dryer perfect for washing cloths during and before you leave. The unit has two lanai's, one off the master and one off the main living space. Both have tables and chars, the one has lounger. The furniture is in great shape and very comfortable. The view of the ocean was a little blocked by palm trees, but was still fantastic. Best of all you could hear the ocean surf at night and it made for a pleasant way to fall asleep. The grounds of the condo resort were well kept, the beach has a reef break that provides a great shallow area for kids to play in. The condo complex is next the coconut market and the Kauai Shores hotel which has the Lava Lava restaurant. Things close early, but if your to tired to go out to eat these two options are walking distance. Overall this unit was fantastic, I just wish I hadn't planned such a packed schedule so I could have enjoyed the condo a bit more. The time we did spend in the condo was great, and it was like a home away from home. When I go back to Kauai, I will rent this unit again. Shampoo and consider were not provided, although some had been left from other guest but not enough for our stay so we bought some and left it for others.

What A Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

The unit had everything we were looking for in accommodations. It was well furnished and the master bed was great! The sound of the ocean was lovely. The guest bedroom looked very nice as well, and both master and guest bathroom showers were very nice. The breezes both on-shore and off were great for keeping the unit cool. We enjoy cooking and the Kitchen had everything we needed. The view overlooking the beach and grounds was outstanding! (The photos on the website were definitely not Photoshopped.) The grounds were well maintained and the swimming pool was great for a post-ocean or late evening swim.

Its location is fantastic! It's location provided easy access to the East, North, South, and West Shores. It's right on a beach which is great for all family members regardless of age and was good snorkeling for intermediate and above skill levels. The beach path to the north led to the new toes-in-sand beach club restaurant and bar which we thought was really fun!

Communication with the owner and local representative was easy, clear, and thorough.

While we enjoyed exploring Kaua'i very much, we found ourselves eager to return the condo to relax on the lanai. We plan to stay here again when we next travel to Kaua'i.

We've stayed at Lae Nani before and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The condo was beautiful but we had to take the twin beds in the second room apart because I have two teenage kids (they were put together to make a king) and then we didn't have bedding for one kid. She used a blanket I brought with me on the plane but it wasn't enough. Access to more blankets and towels would have been nice. Other than that we had an amazing stay and loved the opportunity to enjoy your condo. Thank you so much!!!

Owner's Response: We have a wonderful local representative, Cindy, who can easily be reached if there are any problems. We offer the option of twin beds or king in the second bedroom; usually it is made up with the twin beds, so we apologize for the inconvenience. Cindy can easily take care of something like this and provide extra towels and bedding. Also there is a washer and dryer in the condo that is available for guests. We try to make our guests as comfortable as possible and hope to correct any problems that may arise.

Relaxing with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, really nice and well furnished. The bed was comfortable and plenty of linens and some beach towels. Kitchen was fully stocked with all you need and even had some spices. We added to their supply when we left because we had bought some too! The balcony was my favorite part. The view was amazing. Right near the beach and water. Hearing the waves crash put me right to sleep every night. There was no air conditioning but there was fans in every room so it didn't bother us at all! Very nice property and would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful place!
