1 Bdrm/1 Bath Direct Oceanfront Kauai Condo Rental, Bath Remodel, Stunning Views

Welcome to beautiful Kauai, and our Hale Hokulani (House of Starry Heavens). Turn your Hawaiian dreams into lifelong memories, and escape to Wailua Bay View #214, in Kapaa, Kauai. Relax on the private lanai, a stone’s throw to the crashing waves. At night be amazed by the moon and a sky full of stars...in the morning watch glorious sunrises over the blue Pacific Ocean, sipping your fresh-brewed Kauai coffee! Located on the Royal Coconut Coast, just 10 minutes from the Lihue airport, it's a convenient starting point for day trips over the entire island. Close to golf, Lydgate Park, kayaking on the Wailua River, Luaus, bike paths, swimming and restaurants. See the aerial photo, we're on the quiet side of the complex that sits furthest from the road.

This direct oceanfront condo has one bedroom, with A/C and King bed. You'll sleep like a baby on the memory foam topper and luxury sheets. Enjoy the completely renovated spa-like bathroom, and full kitchen including a dishwasher. The living room has a love seat and queen size sofa bed. Includes FREE Wifi, FREE parking, and brand new washer/dryer, with NO resort fees. Feel the flow-thru trade winds, with the ceiling and floor fans (A/C in bedroom only).

As owners we personally manage our condo, answer your questions, and visit 2 or 3 times a year to ensure all is as promised. We have a fantastic on-island staff, should any need arise. Scroll down and read our reviews, over 80 in only 4 years of ownership, with several from returning guests. Look for reviews on other popular travel sites, there are several for our condo, search Wailua Bay View #214. We continually upgrade and improve our home away from home. Just added: all new carpeting, with super-soft pad underneath, and a key-less entry system, for convenient check-in. Check what guests have said in the "Reviews" about our double-paned noise reduction windows in the bedroom. They open for breezes, and close tightly for a quiet night's sleep.

There’s 2 flat screen TV’s with cable, and Blu-Ray player. You’ll find coolers, plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, and beach umbrella. Use the BBQ grills and swim in the newly renovated pool downstairs. Peruse our many guide books, and our Guest Binder with recommendations for restaurants, tours, and boat trips we’ve personally experienced. We list the local Farmer’s Markets, including one at the Coconut Marketplace, a 5 minute walk away. You can walk to many restaurants, bakeries, shops, kayak and bike rental locations, and great beaches. The spectacular, newly completed Kauai Bike/Walking Path is right out front.

It’s 750 sq. feet of paradise, with everything you need for your island escape...the only thing missing is YOU! Remember to plan ahead, our calendar stays pretty full.

Plan a multi-island trip, for Kauai and magical Maui and get a discount! Under the "Owner Info" tab, there's a link for our other rental listing, an oceanfront studio condo in Kahana, West Maui (vrbo.com/770866) that we've been blessed to own since Oct. 2015. It's been getting 5-star reviews too, and has a great location between Ka'anapali and Kapulua. We'll waive Maui's cleaning fee ($100) if you book concurrent stays in both condos for your Hawaiian getaway!

Come to Hawaii and explore an island paradise. You’ll hike, golf, shop, snorkel and sunbathe, but the irresistible pull of our lanai and those mesmerizing waves will call you back…you won’t want to leave! Feel the Aloha spirit, and enjoy your Hawaiian holiday!

About Jim and Crystal Ham

My husband and I grew up in Northern California, and we love the ocean! A 20 year naval career allowed us to frequently live near water on both coasts and 2 countries in Europe. Being blessed with the opportunity to travel extensively, we have stayed in many different types of accommodations, the good and the not so good. We know what works! We love our little "home away from home", and can't wait till retirement so we can spend more time there!

We love all of Hawaii, and especially Kauai for the incomparable beauty and rich lush landscapes. It offers diverse adventure, in an uncrowded atmosphere, and hearkens back to the Hawaii of old. We’re happy to share our condo, and spread the Aloha!

Jim and Crystal Ham purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jim and Crystal Ham chose Kauai

Wailua Bay View Unit 214 offers the oceanfront location we love, with privacy and convenience. It allows you to enjoy real Hawaii, with all the comforts of home! With a full kitchen, you'll spend less on eating out. Pack lightly, because you'll have a washer/dryer in the unit!

What makes this condo unique

Within seconds of walking into this condo, as you approach the sliding doors to the lanai, you will experience the breezes, the roar of the surf, and the wide open ocean in front of you! You'll watch surfers, paddle boarders, and sometimes outrigger canoe races! Watch for the occasional turtle bobbing in the waves, and whales in the winter. At night, you'll be lulled to dreamland by the sound of the crashing waves. The moon rising and reflecting off the water will be stunning! (Try to come during a full moon!) You will feel right at home, and won't want to leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I don't know when one of my "spur of the moment" trips has ever turned out so smoothly. I attribute it all to my hosts.

First, your vacation condo was available; second, it is so perfectly stocked! Kitchen items, beach items, and what a comfortable place to hang. The bed is very comfortable. Thank you for the high end sheets, towels, dinner dishes and silverware.

You have thought of everything and you should know that it hasn't gone unnoticed. Your perseverance is looking for the perfect view, location, and atmosphere completely paid off!

Perfect waterfront condo. Great location, easy access for our adventures and nearby restaurants. All the inside amenities that we needed. Fell asleep on the sofa to the crashing waves of the ocean.

We returned to our favorite condo for a week stay in Kapaa. This condo is spotless, well maintained, has lots of extra items, everything you need in the kitchen (and more). Books, board games, beach toys/items are plentiful. Condo is tastefully decorated and of course the amazing views! Plenty of parking and centrally located to stores, restaurants and beaches. After a day of sightseeing or snorkeling, it is relaxing to walk across the street and enjoy great food - Mexican or pizza. Also a yummy bakery to get snacks/coffee to watch the sunrise! Plenty of thick towels, new washer and dryer. Bed is comfortable - absolutely a fantastic place to stay. Owners are very responsive to questions and offer great suggestions for sightseeing, restaurants and any other questions you might have. Nice pool with BBQs too. I would rate this 6 stars!!!

Owner's Response: Oh. My. Goodness...Aloha Kathy, and welcome back to our condo! We love hosting guests like you, who love it as much as we do, and they come back! It thrills us to know we're helping make Hawaiian dreams come true! 6 Stars! Love it! Walking to great restaurants is really a plus, isn't it? Along with the great Mexican and Pizza, there's the new Street Burger, Kilauea Fish Market, Hukilau Lanai, and Imua Coffee Roasters, along with the Coconut Marketplace. The Marketplace is undergoing a makeover, to be completed in 2017. Mahalo and much Aloha for your review, and for your return patronage...come back again! Crystal and Jim

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This has been a wonderful, relaxing vacation. We hate leaving. The condo is very nice, fantastic ocean view, wonderful breakfast and dinners and margaritas on the lanai, and a comfy bed. We even have surfers almost everyday right in front of us. It is very well equipped. It has snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels, and an ice chest. We hope to return someday. Love the central island location.

Isn't that lanai a great place to watch the waves? We're glad you enjoyed the comfy bed, and found everything you needed for a great stay. Aloha and Mahalo, Crystal and Jim

Wonderful ocean-front condo that feels like home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently (Sept 2016) stayed at Crystal and Jim's condo in the Wailua Bay View. While this was our fourth time visiting the island and staying at the Wailua Bay View, it was our first time staying in this beautiful condo. Their unit is to the left of the complex (looking from street view), which we enjoy because it is more quiet on that side. They have made numerous upgrades in the last few years and it really makes such a difference! I love the sound-proof window in the master bedroom - it cuts the road noise completely out! Last time we came to Kaua'i in 2014, we were thinking we would need to find a different place to stay the next time because of the noise at night, but when I realized they had installed sound-proof windows in many of the units we quickly changed our mind as we LOVE staying at the Wailua Bay View!

The condo is fully equipped with everything you will need to have a relaxing, fabulous vacation! The lanai is our favorite spot to spend time while we're relaxing at the condo, and the newly updated lanai furniture made it as comfortable as can be. There are beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler, umbrella, and snorkeling equipment available to those who like to adventure out to the beach - we love to, so it was awesome to have all the equipment available right there at the condo! The kitchen is also fully equipped should you choose to do some cooking there - eating out on the lanai is always nice.

We enjoy checking out all the local eateries and there is no shortage around this area. Our new favorite spot was the Lava Lava Beach Club - great food and fun environment located right on the beach! Our favorite local, nice dinner haunt is the Hukilau Lanai located inside the Kauai Coast Resort. Other favorites within walking distance are Street Burger, Kilauea Fish Market Waipouli - casual plates and fresh ahi poke, Caffe Coco - fresh, locally sourced organic food, many Vegan choices, if that's your thing, Passion Bakery Cafe has amazing baked goods and pastries and is located right across from the complex.

As far as places and activities, there are too many to list. We discover something new every time we go! "Kauai Revealed" is an excellent guidebook for everything around the island - dining, adventures, beaches, etc. Highly recommended! We brought our own, but they have a copy at the condo too. We truly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return to Jim and Crystal's condo on our next trip to beautiful Kauai!

Owner's Response: Aloha Christine, and thanks for the wonderful review! Wow, you make me want to just drop everything and go there right now! Good thing we're headed over there for one of our semi-annual visits in a few weeks! We also love that there's so many great restaurants and activities within walking distance of the condo, add that to being direct oceanfront, and it truly is a great location. We'd love to host you again soon!! Mahalo and Aloha, Crystal and Jim

Perfect Condo

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband rented this condo for 3 nights. It was in the perfect location with plenty of parking, lots of nearly restaurants and a large uncrowded beach next door. The condo itself was very well stocked with everything we wanted (and a lot more besides), had a beautiful view and was very comfortable. We can't wait to return.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has everything- view, clean, kichen stocked with everything you need, great location, owners very helpful, etc. We have rented many condos on all the islands, and this unit rates one of the tops. I will definitely go back.

I do miss not having the pool on the ocean side of the building, but the pool and pool grounds are beautiful.

Restaurants, bakeries, shops, and the Coconut Marketplace are all within walking distance. You're steps away from the half-mile long Wailua Beach, which encompasses Wailua Bay and Wailua River State Park. There's a long, paved beach walk/bike trail right in front of the complex. You can walk along the beach to the north, to a keiki (children's) pool, and a sacred heiau (ancient Hawaiian temple). Only 5 minutes away from Lydgate Park, with protected snorkeling ponds and a fantastic playground. Wailua Bay View is all about the 'bay view'! And although you can swim in Wailua Bay, it is known for swells and riptides. Not for novices! That's why the local surfers and bodyboarders love it, and they are fun to watch!
