Overview

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.

It was great, the unit was well equipped and wonderfully situated and perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

The unit quickly felt like home and offered great advantages such as having breakfast on the very private balcony every morning, with the ocean and surf close enough to really enjoy, I really enjoyed the unit, my sister really enjoyed the pool

Love Kauai and Wailua Bay View Condo Location!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to Kauai, and we can't think of a better place to stay than in the Wailua Bay area - very easy to reach every part of the island! We agree with the previous reviewers about the tremendous view from the lanai, well-stocked kitchen for complete cooking convenience, comfortable bed, well-kept grounds and easy walk down a stairway to the beach. It was our home-away-from-home for two weeks... we felt very comfortable there. We think the condo could use updating with all new appliances.

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.
