About the property

2 Bedroom/ 2 Bath Condominium; sleeps five

This two bedroom, two bath condo is located in the stunning oceanfront Lae Nani Resort on Kauai's East Shore. It is a second floor end unit featuring a large covered lanai, perfect for outdoor dining, with unobstructed views of the ocean and Wailua Bay.

Lae Nani is a gated oceanfront condominium complex, roughly seven miles north of the Lihue Airport and a quarter mile north of the mouth of the Wailua River, Kauai's largest river. It's centrally located in the town of Kapa'a for easy access to all areas of the island.

The resort is exquisitely landscaped with lush tropical vegetation and offers a large oceanfront pool and patio, with Weber gas BBQs available for guests. There is also an on site coin-op laundry close to the unit.

Lae Nani is one of several condominium complexes on Papaloa Road, which runs from the north side of the Wailua River to the Coconut Marketplace shopping center. Unique to Lae Nani, however, is a beautiful white sand beach, popular with locals, guests and tourists alike. Constructed many years ago on this beach, a keiki pond (a three-sided black lava rock breakwater) creates a protected pool that is shallower, warmer and calmer than the surrounding ocean.

The condo has just been renovated. The kitchen features brand new granite countertops, cabinets and appliances. There is a four-burner glass top range, large stainless steel refrigerator, stainless dishwasher and a built-in microwave. We have all the pans and kitchen supplies to cook a gourmet feast.

The two bathrooms have also been remodeled, with custom walk-in showers, beautiful tilework and vanities with granite tops. Bamboo floors throughout the unit provide a cool, clean look.

The master bedroom has a new king size bed and attached bath. The second bedroom has two new twin XL beds and attached bathroom. For a small fee, we can put the twin beds together to make a second king size bed.

There are an assortment of beach toys for guests to use including beach chairs, boogie boards, a selection of snorkel masks, and sand toys for children to play with at our protected Keiki pond.

The Coconut Marketplace is an easy walk away and has many shops that cater to tourists. Kapa'a town is about a mile north of Lae Nani with bicycle, snorkel and beach gear rental, grocery stores (Safeway and Foodland), drug stores, banks, restaurants and farmer's markets. Rent bikes in town and take them onto the new bike path that begins in Kapa`a town and winds north along the ocean for many miles.

Kauai is a small enough island that most visitors want to explore it all, from Waimea Canyon and Koke`e State Park on the West Side, to Hanalei town and the tropical lagoon at Ke`e beach in the North. Lae Nani is conveniently located about halfway between these two road's-end points. We think you'll love exploring the beaches, towns, rivers, falls, jungles and attractions Kauai has to offer, and returning each night to the beautiful and tranquil Lae Nani Resort.

About Carol Pepitone

Our family members never stop circulating between Santa Barbara and the front range of Colorado, but one thing we all agree on is our love for the Coconut Coast of Kauai. Much more than the tourist enclaves on the North and South Shores, Kapaa is where people live, work, shop, cook, and enjoy each other's company and the pleasures of life.

Carol Pepitone purchased this condo in 2000

Why Carol Pepitone chose Kauai

After many trips to Kauai, and an ever-expanding circle of island friends, we wanted a place of our own where we could relax, spend more time with our ohana and enjoy the beauty, wonder and natural bounty Kauai has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

When you arrive on Kauai and the cabin door opens, the first thing that hits you is the warm, humid floral scent in the air. Although you'll take it for granted and eventually stop noticing it, it's always there on Kauai. Once we get 'home' to Lae Nani, we settle into the routines that will define our days: getting together with friends and family, visiting new beaches, hiking new trails, biking the new bike path, walking to the shops and restaurants around us, shopping the farmer's markets and eating the local food. Of course we have our favorite places and you'll discover yours as well after your first trip, but don't hesitate to ask us for specifics if it's your first visit - there's no lack of good things to do, see and eat on Kauai.

Wonderful stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic rental and property. We had a 5 and 9 year old that took full advantage of the baby Beach in front of the condo. They also enjoyed the pool which was hardly used even during a busy Christmas holiday. The ground are stunning. The Condo was clean and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. We really enjoyed being close to the north and south shore. We usually stay in Pouipu but we found the weather in the coconut coast fantastic. We were given our codes to the property well ahead of our arrival which was much appreciated. This was our fourth time on the island and I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Condo, Stunning Property

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful, nicely furnished and equipped for all our needs. The property is stunning. The view from the lanai is just as pictured and you are close enough to hear the surf! We preferred the larger bathroom with the guest room over the smaller one with the master, but since there were just the two of us, it was not an issue and they are both beautiful granite and tile walk in showers! The area is great as you are very centrally located with several restaurants within walking distance that were very good! Biking in Kapa'a was great fun as was Capt. Andy Sunset Dinner Cruise and sightseeing in general. Stores such as Safeway and even Costo close by and easy to find. We hope we can return in the not too distant future

Vacation at Lae Nani Oceanfront Condo 2 br/2ba

  • 5 of 5

The condo was like home away from home. It was very clean and beautiful. I was especially happy that the beds were VERY comfortable. The view was absolutely beautiful. We could watch the waves coming in and crashing into the shore. Carol, the owner, was excellent in getting back to me with the information that I needed. The pool was very nice. It is situated in a great spot as it seemed to me we could easily get to anywhere on the island. The last day we found a great place to eat near the Safeway closest to the condo. It is a bar and grill and you could easily miss it but is worth looking for. All the business employees around it eat there. Also a place called Dukes at the Marriott has super desserts. Try the pies, yum. The Smith's liau is fab. The food is great and the show is awesome. A place called Foodland near the condo has some good prices for food especially if you give them your phone number and they put you in their system. You get a discount on food, like you get at Safeway here on the mainland. You will enjoy your stay, we did!

Beautiful Up to Date Condo on a Stunning Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous visit to Kauai, and much pleasure staying at this spacious newly renovated condo. The kitchen was well stocked with all new appliances. The bathrooms had walk-in showers, and there was plenty of room. The beds were extremely comfortable. The lanai had a lovely view of the water and the lush landscaping. The beach was beautiful, private, with a sheltered play area for children. The pool is actually swimmable, and sheltered from the wind. There was enough soap and paper supplies for our two week stay. Both Foodland and Safeway are a close drive away. The Coconut Marketplace next door is dealing with some vacancy, but we took good advantage of the farmer's market held there Tuesday and Thursday mornings. The laundry was in the next building - very close. We did not eat out much, but we did enjoy the Olympic Cafe in Kapaa.

Kapaa is centrally located on the island so we made good use of our car exploring north and south. We especially enjoyed climbing the Sleeping Giant, biking the Kapaa bike path, a trip by sea to the Napali Coast, the Kauai Brewing Company, and swimming at every beach with a life guard stand.

I have very few negatives. If you find traffic noise bothersome, there is some. The units are not particularly sound proof, I think because they are mostly uncarpeted. Most people don't stay as long as we did, but I could have used more bathroom cleaning supplies.

Overall I highly recommend this lovely condo.
