About the property

2 Bedroom/ 2 Bath Condominium; sleeps four

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 Kapaa

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.

Condo with a view

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. It had a beautiful view of the ocean, which the community is carefully designed to provide from every unit. The grassy area was good for playing and throwing the football, which my husband and son did quite often during our visit. It is a pretty quiet community so we were not disturbed even though the windows must be open for outside air and breeze. Having the beach chairs and toys available in the condo was helpful, although we were unable to find the beach towels. The Coconut Market right outside the community was lovely with almost anything you might need available for purchase. We loved exploring Kauai during our stay and hope we will be back soon!

Perfect location to explore and relax

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. The kitchen is very thoughtfully equiped and allowed us to cook many great dinners from the produce purchased at the local farmers’ markets. Nothing could be better than fresh fish, great salads and a glass of wine while eating on the lanai overlooking the ocean. The only negative was that there is noise from the road as the bedrooms do face the road. Nevertheless, we would return. Lovely grounds and great central location for exploring Kauai! Most condos to not provide the equipment to really cook a gourmet meal but this one surely did! Overall, this property has everything one needs to enjoy Kauai.

Amazing Condo in an Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this condo and it was just as perfect! Carol has updated the kitchen and bathrooms with beautiful new cabinets, tiles, appliances and gorgeous showers! The condo is equipped with everything you need for making all your meals, the beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of room for relaxing both inside and out on the spacious lanai with a fantastic ocean view! The location works well for all island exploring and the grounds at Lae Nani are very well kept and beautiful. We enjoyed the beach as well and spent many hours swimming and snorkelling. There are good restaurants and shopping near by. Carol was great to work with again. I highly recommend this property!

Great condo in great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best condo our family of four (two teenagers) stayed in during our three island - two week Christmas vacation. We stayed 6 nights. The condo is convenient to going north or south. We used the condo as base and were up and going every morning by 9:00 and would return late afternoon. The sunrises were wonderful! However, coming “home” to everything we needed made the stay more enjoyable - paper towels, toilet tissue, bar soap, dishwasher detergent, trash bags etc. Plus the towels and bedding were nice. We were tired and didn’t go out and the kitchen had good cookware and oil and spices we wanted. To top it off the community grilling area was perfect.

Lovely Condo in a Well-Maintained Complex

  • 5 of 5

This condo is tastefully decorated and very clean. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was adequately equipped for our purposes. Having an end unit is a plus. We were lucky in that the condos above and below us were vacant except for our last night when someone moved in upstairs. You will hear people walking above, moving chairs, closing doors etc. I'm not an apartment dweller so am admittedly overly sensitive perhaps. There is a bit of street and parking lot noise outside of the bedrooms but it may not bother most people. The location is central for exploring the rest of the island, which we did and enjoyed. Not sure if this is typical, but we had a couple of days of rain, one being a full day of heavy rain that resulted in warnings of unhealthy ocean conditions. The beach in front of Lae Nani is close to a major river and after the storm, the ocean was not swimmable. The water was brown and after hearing warnings about poor water quality we decided to venture north to Anini Beach where the water was clean and clear. Having never been to Kapaa, not sure how often this happens. The surf was also a bit rough after that storm. But there's a lovely pool at Lae Nani if you want to swim. Our visit was in early November so it's possible that things are different in the summer. There are several very good restaurants within walking distance of the condo. If you're in the mood for a burger, I recommend Street Burger. You can also walk to several shops, Tiki Boutiki has some interesting clothing and jewelry. The owner, Marjorie, and her daughters are delightful! If you can manage a longer walk, you can make it to downtown Kapaa. We happened upon the Saturday evening Art Walk with many local artisans selling their wares. Wailua Shaved Ice is not to be missed! Overall we had a GREAT time and I wouldn't hesitate to return!
