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.

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!

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!

A fantastic home away from home

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived in Kauai, it was late so we were pretty much getting organized to settle in when we arrived at the condo and what a wonderful condo it was. It was roomy, clean and had everything we needed for the three of us (my husband, 9 year old daughter and myself). My daughter slept on the hide a bed sofa in the living room and instantly fell asleep to the sound of the waves. The next morning I had my cup of coffee and watched the surfers, listened to the waves and enjoyed the tropical breeze.

The condo was well equipped. We were able to make all of our meals and they had everything we needed for everyday functioning. We made our lunches each day and packed it for our day trips. They had a couple of different types of coolers which came in really handy. We brought our snorkelling gear but they had some gear available if we needed it. Having a washer/dryer came in really handy especially after our wet and muddy hike at Waimea Canyon. The location of the condo was perfect for us. When we wanted to do a day trip or head out to the beaches, the drive was quite reasonable, plus the drives around Kauai are lovely, so it worked out well for our family. The beach close to the condo, in my opinion was a bit to rough for swimming, it was more of a surfing beach but certainly good for a walk and for great views from our balcony.

Overall, I really enjoyed this condo. It was very clean, well maintained, great location, excellent view and had everything we needed. We are so glad we found this condo and would absolutely recommend it and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you again Crystal for your kindness and for everything, we really enjoyed our stay and look forward visiting Kauai again.

The Powerful Pacific with the Best View in the East

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 daughters (age 10/13) had the opportunity to stay in this unit beginning Christmas day for 3 nights. Everything was as described, and even better in person. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed to make wonderful meals to sit out on the lanai with. The ocean was so powerful during our stay and the crashing waves made a very nice backdrop while inside. We much appreciated the A/C in the master bedroom, along with the sound dampening windows. With the trade wind breezes and fans, the pullout bed in the living room was very pleasant and no A/C was needed. My girls even had to turn off the fan and close the lanai screens to "stay warm". We saw a sea turtle onshore, and went body surfing just down the stairs to the south. The convenient store, just steps away from the unit, was great for grabbing quick items and filling the car before having to leave and head to the airport 10 minutes away. Great access to the southern and northern beaches and many restaurants within walking distance. We can't wait to return! We will definitely recommend this to our friends and hope to get back soon. Thank you making our Christmas vacation one to remember!

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! It's centrally located to everywhere on the island and very homey. They provide everything you could need down to beach chairs and towels and even bandaids. Just pack your swimsuit and a hat!

We hope to be back soon!

Great Location and Unit

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the unit and appreciated how easy it was to work with the owners. Their suggestions for dining and other activities were very thoughtful. Great location for travel to North and East locations. The unit had a great bathroom update and having the large washer/dryer was handy. The personal items, such as guide books, plenty of soap, laundry detergent, spices, etc. which were left in the unit eliminated the need to shop for small quantities of these items. Except for the ocean waves, the complex is quiet - despite its central location. Could walk to Coconut Marketplace. We can't think of how anyone would be disappointed if looking for a nice, clean, rental for two people near Kapa'a and Wailua.

Exactly what we hoped for

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.

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!
