Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Kauai - WBV111

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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wailua Bay View #111. We simply couldn't have found a better place to call "home" while visiting Kauai. We started every morning on the lanai enjoying the amazing view of the ocean. The condo's great location allowed convenient access to all areas of the island. Although we did eat out a few times, we really liked cooking at the condo where the kitchen was well equipped. The beach gear provided for us was great.

This was our first trip to Kauai and we are already looking forward to coming back again. And when we do return, we definitely want to stay at this fabulous condo again! On a five star rating, we give it a 5+++!

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Condo was very clean and well-equipped. Unfortunately missing the boogie-board provided in the description.

Because of the location, there is some road noise.

Everything is perfectly decorated, the bed is comfortable. The pool is very nice too.

A perfect little gem in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this condo in Kauai. It was just the perfect location for us and the view was amazing. Very comfortable for 2 people and close to the beach. We rented a convertible which was an experience in itself and took the suggestion of taking a cruise on Capt. Andy's catamaran. Also I loved getting up every morning and crossing the street to the little coffee shop for my ritual latte! The condo had most everything we needed and we made use of the great beach chairs and snorkels. It was a little hard to see the lock box to get the keys and we wished there were more than 3 beach towels so we could rotate while we washed a set. Also the description said there were boogie boards but we couldn't find any. There was however plenty of sunscreen and aloe and we left a few more items as well since we ate in most nights. We would love to stay here again next year!

Overall it was the perfect place for our getaway!

terrific Condo and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Kauai and could not have picked a better unit. It was exactly as advertised and contained so many little extras to make our stay enjoyable. I think the thing we liked the best was just sitting and relaxing on the lanai listening to the waves rolling. With the gentle breezes there was no need for air conditioning.

The condo complex is situated in a perfect spot to visit all over the island as well as being close to good restaurants and shopping .When not out visiting we were able to lounge around the pool just outside our door.

All in all I can't think of a more pleasant and relaxed stay and would not hesitate to recommend this unit to others

Repeat visitors to Wailua Bay View - no reason to go elsewhere

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Wailua Bay View for 5+ years. Have stayed in a few different units, the experience this time was as good or better than all the rest. Luke made the business/financial part easy (some minor confusion from VRBO and sending money, he just contacted me directly and we figured it out). We didn't venture far this time (3 trips to the muni golf course 5 minutes away). But this place is very centrally located, just 10 minutes from airport, then easy north or south to Princeville or Poipu, under an hour to either.

Also close to Lydgate park/beach, appreciated the great beach chairs and other toys (snorkel, fins, etc.) that are with the unit. The county also made the walk to the beach below better/safer with the safety wall between the path and roadway. I hope the imminent re-development of Coco Palms doesn't ruin the "quiet" of this complex. Hoping also that upgrades to Coconut Marketplace are good (sorry that Eggberts is gone) - this shopping area a 5 minute walk away.

I have read a few of the negative reviews and hope those people find what they want elsewhere. This complex is a gem, only 40 or so units, it is mostly quiet (except for the gardener blower once a week or so). This is NOT a "resort" condo, trying to compete with fancy hotels. You settle into your "home" for whatever time you are there. We like to eat in, but you can walk across the street for coffee, bakery, Mexican, Korean, Japanese, pizza, and now a burger place as well. Pool and BBQ area works really well, and are rarely busy or noisy. This is just a perfect, relaxing way to enjoy Hawaii without feeling like you are a mainland tourist paying crazy money and being marketed to all day long.

Traffic through the neighboring town of Kapaa can be a bit much at times, but if you are a reasonable walker, you can get there in 10 minutes by foot - terrific walking/biking paths in both directions from Wailua Bay. Once you figure out the commute traffic patterns (don't let those "contra commute" lanes/cones get to you - they work!).

I'll be back next year with my grandkids, they were taken to Waikiki once, I want them to enjoy Kauai and the many activities set up for locals that we visitors can enjoy (I am a lap swimmer, 2 miles away a public pool with FREE admission). If you want to be treated like a tourist, go to Maui or Oahu; if you want to "pretend" that you live in Hawaii for a bit, come here!!

So glad to have discovered this place!

Great location, beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Wailua Bay. The location was perfect for exploring the Island. The view from our lanai was amazing, great place to watch the sunrise/sunset and relax after a busy day out. The condo was clean, comfortable, and simple. We had no problems with it. Luke was great to work with, timely in response, and had some great tips for exploring the Island. Would definitely stay here again!
