Overview

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

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.

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.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The condo is in a great location for outings to both the North and South side of the Island. The condo was very well equipped, from the kitchen to the bathrooms to the beach necessities. The grounds of the complex were beautiful and we especially enjoyed the tiki torches that are lit in the evenings. The shops in Kapaa are fun and have a more "local" feel, rather than touristy and resorty. For great coffee, JavaKai is a must!

Beautiful family Christmas in Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo at Lae Nani. The grounds are beautiful, and the location is ideal - just steps away from ocean and keiki pool. We enjoyed day trips to the north and south shores of the island (loved Hanalei!) and enjoyed making this condo our homebase for 10 beautiful days. We will visit here again at the first chance we get. Thank you for sharing paradise with us!

Living the Dream

  • 5 of 5

This exceptional property has recently been renovated by the owners who live here off and on throughout the year. With the ocean merely yards from the unit, views of the ocean from the lanai are fantastic. You will find remodeled kitchen and bathrooms, beautiful flooring and granite counter tops throughout. Local restaurants are easily accessable via foot or bike. Driving on Kauai is challenging so proximity to Foodland and Safeway was a bonus. Because Carol lives here she can be very insightful when it comes to local amenities. My wife and I had a fantastic stay!

Oceanfront complex in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Family members stayed a week at 3 different units at this quiet oceanfront complex. This is an end unit in Bldg 4 with direct ocean view. It's the furthest unit from the beach but only a two minute walk to shore where there is also a small nicely sheltered area for kids. There is a large pool and tennis courts. No in-suite laundry but there is a coin-op laundry room on the property. Unit was quite large, comfortably furnished and in a nice neighbourhood. Newer appliances including a fridge with ice maker which came in very handy. Grocery stores, a small marketplace and restaurants are nearby. Perfect location to travel north or south and not have to spend all day driving. I have to say that the units that our other family members stayed in were beautifully updated and looked brand new inside. This unit does not appear to have had updates other than fridge, stove and cabinet doors but it was cleanwell stocked and very comfortable. Owner was excellent to deal with.
