Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Lae Nani is called the Jewel of the Coconut Coast. There is no other resort on Kauai that has a more beautiful landscape, or better ocean access than Lae Nani. Because of this, people return to Lae Nani year after year. After returning to Kauai several times since our honeymoon, we decided this year to buy our dream home on the island. We then renovated it from the ground up to a very high standard, so that we can enjoy it for years to come. We are now listing it for the first time, and would like to invite you to our home. It is a ground floor unit, so you can walk right out the glass doors, onto the soft grass, onto the sand, and into the Ocean with nothing in between. The pictures below tell the best story, but some highlights include ocean view and ocean sounds from inside the unit, floors that include travertine and Brazilian tiger wood, granite countertops in both kitchen and bathrooms, stainless appliances, ice-maker, dishwasher, 40” LED HD tv with blu-ray player, wifi, and a wallbed that transforms from a beautiful piece of furniture into a fullsize queen mattress with reading lights (kids and adults love it.) We bought new furniture and amenities, which includes a king mattress, queen mattress, linens, and oversize towels. There is even original art in the unit. Tiki torches are lit nightly across the property, and easily seen from your window. Lae Nani gives you the Hawaiian experience you expect, on some of the most beautiful grounds in Kauai. Our condo will exceed your expectations for accommodation. We would like to welcome you to our home.

About The Owner

Mark and Natalie live in Houston, and have 2 preschool age children.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Kauai

We honeymooned on Kauai and vacation there every year. We walked onto the Lae Nani property on one of those vacations, and we own this condo 2 years later. We loved it the moment we stepped onto it. The beach offers the best variety in Kauai. There is an area for children that has been built out of lava rocks to protect from any current, where my 2 year old plays freely in it with no fear. Next to that there is a wilder area with rolling waves where teens and adults surf and snorkel on a daily basis. Next to that, there is an area protected by a small reef that allows you to lay on the water’s edge and enjoy a drink without being bothered by large current. All this with a beautiful mountain backdrop that offers spectacular views of sunrise and sunset.

What makes this condo unique

snorkeling, swimming, sunsets, biking, watching the sunsets and sunrises.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Meaghan and I would like to pass along our thanks for the terrific suite we have had the fortune to stay in. The location and amenities are great, the unit very comfortable. It will be a shame to depart tomorrow. We are already discussing future return visits.

Great vacation rental

  • 4 of 5

We had a really good time here, everything was like the pictures. Perfect location, very good conditions, clean. Kitchen is fairly equipped.

This was our second time at Lae Nani in another unit and it didn't disappoint us at all!

We'd love to go back!

Wonderful location & Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

An exceptional property in Kauai'i! Located on the Coconut Coast, if you like to explore, this is the perfect spot to access the entire island, north to south. The Lae Nani property is excellent - manicured lawn, heated pool with ocean view, private beach, nice swimming area for kids.The condo was great. I was concerned about being on the ground floor with noise from above, however it was not a big deal. (Would have been nice if people above didn't constantly drag their chairs around their lanai whenever they were there).The Ground floor made it easy to get in and out with gear, coolers, etc. and the car parking is near. In the front, the lanai opens up to a wonderful combination of lawn and ocean views framed by palm trees and fragrant flowers. The BBQs by the pool are nearby and easy to access. The condo itself is spacious and clean, tastefully decorated, and the tropical breeze from the ocean made lack of an A/C a non-factor. The kitchen was equipped with everything necessary. Mark was excellent to deal with, always responding to my messages. We'll be back!!!

No A/C, but great central location

  • 4 of 5

We weren't aware this condo didn't have A/C until we arrived. It was definitely warm during the day, so we couldn't really return to take a nap or relax or we were uncomfortable. It did cool down some during the night, but was still warmer than we would have preferred. My husband & I are warm sleepers, so it was still a little warm for us to be totally comfortable & sleep well. Aside from no A/C, the condo was in a great, central location close to restaurants & easy access to the North & South Shores. The condition of the condo was great & the updates were very nice. We enjoyed the close proximity to the beach as well.

Oceanfront Lae Nani

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the island many times and have stayed many places but this is our new favorite. We love the convenient location on the East coast. It was not far from the airport for the late flights in and a great location for many activities (kayaking, hiking, and snorkeling, shopping), close to lots of great restaurants, and not to far to enjoy the west or north side of the island. Although it is close to everything when you are at the condo it is very quiet and peaceful in the complex. We enjoyed our morning walks on the grounds and the beaches and strolling over to the coconut market's farmers market to buy produce. The condo is beautifully decorated and has everything we needed including a great view. The owners were great at providing us with accurate and detailed information of what was there and how to get there. We love the place and are looking forward to coming back again!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

May 23, 2016

Hello, Mark. Paul & I had a wonderful time in Kauai! The condo was perfect. I was worried about no A/C but it wasn't necessary. The breeze and temperature were great. The condo grounds are so gorgeous. We took so many pictures of beautiful plants and flowers. The datura tree, right outside front door, was one of our favorites. We have one at our home but it is only about 7 feet tall.

When wind came from that direction the fragrance of datura drifted thru the house. From the other direction we could smell plumeria sometimes.

Location was perfect. We drove each direction to Napali coast, (2 separate days). Another day was Waimea Canyon. We also took doors off helicopter ride at Jack Harter. It was fantastic. Loved it!!

When/if we return we will spend entire vacation in Kauai. Maui was beautiful too but we really enjoyed our stay on Kauai much more.

Mahalo, Julia & Paul

Beautiful condo on the beach in Kapaa

  • 5 of 5

I found this lovely condo by searching the internet for places to stay while in Kauai. At first I was a little leery because well it's the Internet, and you just never know what your going to get. This trip was going to be special as I was taking my Mom as a surprise. We arrived late at night and the condo was super easy to find, even though the driveway going into the condo you can miss (and we did several times). We walked into the condo and were very pleased. Mark had everything in detail and instructions on how to do it all. There was just enough to cook with for the morning breakfast and you are close to everything. There is a Foodland just up the street and a Safeway. We found the best prices was Foodland, but Safeway was the one we went to all the time (Starbucks and ABC store is in the same complex).

The first morning we woke to quickly look out and see how lush and green it was. Just unbelievable and my Mom said "I feel like I am dreaming". There are two beds, one that is a murphy bed so it pulls down from the wall. That bed was reported as being comfortable. The master has a large King size bed, and a nice full bathroom.. Laundry services are right across the unit and it's about a dollar to wash and a dollar to dry your clothes. Which came in handy for our beach towels. They do have beach towels in the unit but we wanted our own, so we bought them at ABC store. This location is perfect you are about 40 minutes either direction for the South or North Shore. I cannot say enough about this unit and I would book again! They were so easy to work with and very helpful!

I will give a little tips though that we learned while there. The activity desk in front of Safeway is a timeshare presentation. If you buy a discounted ticket from them it will be a very high sales pitch, and hard to get out of. Also, you most likely will need a 4 wheel drive while there. So many times we found ourselves on dirt roads with lots of pot holes. There is a farmers market that takes place on Tuesday and Thursday at the Coconut Marketplace (you can walk there from the condo) and it lasts all morning. There is also a walking path that goes behind the pool where people go to watch the sunrise each morning (I started making it a daily thing). The sunset can be viewed from the South Shore, which is worth it!
