1 Bdrm/1 Bath Direct Oceanfront, Bath Remodel, Stunning Views, Steps to Beach

Come explore Kauai...turn your Hawaiian dreams into lifelong memories! Welcome to Hale Hokulani (House of Starry Heavens) where you'll experience upscale home comfort, with Aloha. Relax on the private lanai, you're just a stone’s throw to the crashing waves. Nighttime brings amazing moonrises and a sky full of stars, and in the morning you'll see glorious sunrises over the blue Pacific Ocean, while you sip your freshly-brewed Kauai coffee. Located on the Royal Coconut Coast in Kapaa, 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 Wailua Bay View (#214), 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). You'll have the enhanced security, privacy and views from the 2nd floor, please note there is no elevator.

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, we have over 100 in less than 5 years of ownership, with several from returning guests. 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! We'll waive Maui's cleaning fee of $100 if you book consecutive stays in each of our oceanfront condos for your Hawaiian getaway. Both bookings must be made concurrently, or at the same time, they must be for 5 nights or longer in each condo, totaling 10 nights or more. See our oceanfront studio condo in Kahana, West Maui at vrbo.com/770866. We've been blessed to own this little jewel since Oct. 2015. It's been getting 5-star reviews too, and has a great location between Ka'anapali and Kapulua.

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

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 overseas. During our travels we've 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" we've been blessed to own since 2012, and can't wait till retirement so we can spend spend more time there.

In October 2015 we purchased another little piece of paradise on Maui, a large oceanfront studio at Pohailani Maui in Kahana. You'll find it at vrbo.com/770866. If you're going to Hawaii, you need to be oceanfront! Come be our guests, and experience the the Aloha and magic of Hawaii. Visit our condos in Maui and Kauai, and we give a discount (Maui's cleaning fee, $100) for consecutive stays, booked at the same time. Stays must be 5 nights or longer at each condo, for a total of 10 nights or more. Email for more information!

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 purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jim and Crystal 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!

Restaurants, bakeries, shops, and the Coconut Marketplace are all within walking distance.

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!

Is this what Heaven looks like?

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Wailua Bay View, #214 And just loved it. We were there 9/5-9/13. We were delighted by the condo itself, very clean and neat and by its easy proximity to virtually everything. The view off the lanai is so fantastic, it hardly seemed real. Crystal was excellent to work with and we liked that Marvis (the cleaning person/on island contact) was so present on the property every day. 4 days into our trip I contracted double pneumonia and was in the hospital for a few days. Because of this, we had to fly back 2 days after our scheduled departure. Crystal was able to accommodate this little hiccup and allowed us to stay 2 additional nights in the condo. If we needed to stay longer, Marvis knew another property owner in the complex who could put us up another night, if need be. Fantastic customer service and very easily accessible. Couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay or nicer owners to work with. Mahalo to Crystal and Jim for letting us borrow their little slice of Heaven! By the way, we saw sea turtles and a pod of dolphins off the lanai. Exciting!

Like home - with a Better View!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely condo - well appointed with everything needed for a relaxing stay. The view from the lanai and proximity to the ocean was amazing. All of the amenities were perfect - even down to the beach chairs and snorkeling equipment! Crystal and Jim were very responsive and I loved the 2-page island recommendations they provided - the near-by water falls were beautiful! We will be back.

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo Cynthia, and we're so glad you enjoyed your stay. It is quite a fantastic location, isn't it? If you're coming all the way to Hawaii, why not stay oceanfront! Thanks for mentioning the amenities we provide, we visit 2 or 3 times a year to make sure our guests have everything they need for a perfect stay in paradise. Hope to host you again soon, and we wish you much Aloha. Mahalo nui loa, Crystal and Jim

Enjoyed our month in Kauai - location of condo was excellent.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the condo is perfect, right between if we wanted to head towards Waimea, or Princeville. The Island has a lot to offer and a perfect place for a vacation.

Amazing stay in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

Wow what an amazing condo this is, spotlessly clean and absolutely everything we needed was provided by Crystal. We loved sitting on the lanai watching and listening to the ocean. We honestly could not have found a nicer place to stay and would love to return one day. If only it was not such a long way for us to travel. Thank you Crystal and Jim for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo.

I'll pass on your compliments on cleanliness to our wonderful housekeeping staff. Wishing you much Aloha, and Mahalo nui loa, Crystal and Jim
