About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our 1 bedroom oceanfront Kauai condo, unit 111, has been with VRBO for over 5 years and has been booked almost everyday with over 50, 5-star reviews. You will find yourself right on the ocean and far from the highway! Sit and relax on your private lanai while watching the waves roll in to Wailua beach. The view is truly spectacular. Many guests have shared stories of watching whales breach on the ocean surface for hours at a time right from the lanai.

Wailua Bay View is centrally located near Kapaa by the famous Wailua River and old Coco Palms resort where Elvis filmed 'Blue Hawaii'. It is only 10 minutes from the airport and is a perfect location to base from when sightseeing on the Garden Isle. The condo is situated directly over beautiful Wailua beach and is only a short walk to Papaloa beach, a protected cove for babies and young children. Lydgate Park is less than a 5 minute drive which boasts the best playground on Kauai. In addition, the County of Kauai just finished a bike path that borders Wailua Bay View and stretches from Kealia Beach to Lydgate Park, more than 8 miles in length.

These ground floor units are just steps from the pool and barbeque area. The private lanai is complete with railing for extra security. This makes a perfect set up for families either with or without children, with no stairs to lug up suitcases and groceries. Our condo comes with a fully equipped kitchen and a washer and dryer in the unit. We also offer free wireless high speed internet, cable TV and DVD player, a king sized bed, a sofabed, a single futon and even a pack and play/crib for little ones. Beach gear such as boogie boards and beach chairs are also provided to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

About Luke Hofacker

Growing up in Canada, my family visited Hawaii every winter. My husband and I are fortunate to now live on the island of Oahu. Kauai is just a short trip for us and is our favorite of the Hawaiian islands to visit. We love the slower pace and opportunity to vacation close to home. We enjoy relaxing at the beach as well as hiking, scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing. No wonder we love Kauai as it is a perfect island for outdoor activities and water sports.

Luke Hofacker purchased this condo in 2011

Why Luke Hofacker chose Kauai

The view is absolutely amazing. We love being right on the ocean. Kauai has been our favorite vacation destination for many years.

What makes this condo unique

The location is ideal being only 10 minutes from the airport and central to exploring the island both to the north and south. Wailua Bay View is close to shops and restaurants, yet quiet and peaceful. We really enjoy the walking distance to the protected beach cove for little ones and nearby Lydgate Park.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our four night stay. Luke was great to work with and the on-site staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The process to check in and check out was very easy. The lanai was a great place to watch sunrises and to hang out in the morning and evening. The apartment was clean and all the appliances worked fine. Great location with many restaurants nearby and easy to explore the north and west side of the island from this east side location. There were plenty of parking spaces so parking was not an issue. There was air conditioning in the bedroom but with the cool breezes always flowing through the apartment we never turned it on. Would highly recommend this.

Don't hesitate, book this condo

  • 5 of 5

Great location, easy parking, the condo is clean, well appointed and with a view that doesn't disappoint. The kitchen has more than I ever needed, 2 TV's, beach gear and a washer dryer make this condo an easy choice. The pool and BBQ is extremely clean and usually empty. We had no noise issues and the other renters were friendly.

Great view/ ok condo

  • 3 of 5

The two reasons to stay at this condo are 1) the beautiful ocean view from the balcony and the 2) the central location of the condo, which makes it easy to visit the different parts of the island. We certainly enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the view of Waileau Bay. As most reviewers have stated, it really is a fantastic view. The condo itself, however, was nothing special and could use some updating. Strangely, we were unable to turn off a ceiling fan, which made the condo quite cool in the morning. Also, the dryer quit working for us. The owner was responsive to our call about these problems. However, he was unable to help us get the fan to turn off as apparently, he has had some ongoing electrical issues with it. The swimming pool is located in the parking area and is smaller than I thought it would be. Unfortunately, my six-year-old daughter found it too cold to swim in. We did enjoy walking along the beach near the condo. The beach chairs/sand toys/boogie boards, etc. were much appreciated. We didn't cook much while we were there but the kitchen appeared to be well stocked.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review my property. The remote control in the wall had batteries that were out which left it in the on position. Unfortunately we were not able to discover that on New Year's Eve, the date you reported the problem. In addition, the appliance repairman was also not available on New Years Eve or New Years Day. Both issues were promptly fixed 48 hours after you reported them, on Jan 2nd, the day after your departure. I sincerely wish you would have taken this into consideration before awarding my property a 3 star review. I take maintenance issues very seriously, but trying to get repairmen to work at 4pm on New Year's Eve is a bridge too far. We had the coldest winter in about 20 years and it left the pool with a bit of about chill. I sincerely apologize for these issues and as the Vice President of the Association am working to make the property better. Mahalo, Luke

Spectacular ocean views and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Kauai and it was perfect! The views from the Lani are spectacular, condo is comfortable, and well maintained. The owners are thoughtful, quick to respond, and provided us a safe comfortable stay. We appreciated the thorough pre/check in information including travel recommendations. The views, grounds and pool are all well maintained. Luke and Kristi thank you for your hospitality.

Oceanfront delight

  • 5 of 5

Wailua Bay View #111 is a well-appointed 1 bdrm, full kitchen waterfront condo with a washer/dryer unit located 10 minutes from the airport. The condo is located steps away from the pool and has easy access without going up flights of stairs. The lanai is the ideal place to enjoy the scenery of Kauai - only a few feet of grass and a small bluff separates you from the ocean and Wailua Bay Beach. The condo complex is small, clean and well supervised. There is a pool and patio behind the building which is an ideal site to sunbath or BBQ. The location is terrific, mid-distance between the North and South/West so you can easily make day trips or excursions anywhere on the island. There are a number of restaurants and a small shopping mall within walking distance of the condo but a car is recommended for touring the island.

The owner is excellent to work with - he responds quickly to inquires and wants you to have a positive experience during your stay at his condo.

I will definitely recommend this condo to my family and friends. We stayed for three weeks and will be looking forward to a return visit to Kauai and will book #111 again.

My husband and I just returned from our trip to Kauai. We had a wonderful time. I was looking over all the reviews and I agree with them. This condo is great. Nicely stocked and comfortable. The beach chairs and towels came in handy. So did the binoculars. It's little things like that that make a stay more pleasant. I think the thing we loved the most is the view. Loved having our morning coffee out on the lanai talking over our plans for the day. It was great coming "home" to it too. It was fun watching the paddle boarders and kite surfers. Because of the location we usually only spent half the day exploring and the other half enjoying "our" beach and pool. Thank you Luke and family for sharing this condo with us. We'll be back!!
