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 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 (one cleaning fee) for concurrent stays. (Stays must be booked at the same time).

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!

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!

Relaxing stay and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We were guests at the Wailua Bay View Condo (#214) from February 6 - 27, 2017. The condo was very clean and all the necessities were provided making it easy to move into our "home away from home". It was wonderful to watch the sunrise from the lanai each morning and see the whales in the distance during the early evening hours of our last week. The condo was centrally located so our day trips north , south or west were an easy drive. Crystal was very helpful in planning our trip and attentive during our stay. She was helpful with suggestions and always very responsive to any emails I sent to her. The property has access to the beach through a path next door and the sandy beach continues right in front of the lanai.

When we were there, we did not need to run the air conditioner. Opening the windows and sliding door let a perfect ocean cross breeze through. At night, we closed the windows, shutters and curtains and just ran the ceiling fan. (I read this tip in Crystal's helpful visitor guide.) This helped keep the room really dark even in the morning hours and the rooster "alarm clock" muffled. There are chickens throughout the island but after a few days, you don't even notice them any more. I loved to hear the ocean roar and waves hitting the beach.

I recommend considering this condo if you are planning a trip to Kauai. We have very fond memories of this wonderful vacation.

Perfect location, well-equipped unit, awesome view.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Kauai, staying at Wailua Bay View condos. Everyone always talks about staying South (Poipu) or North (Princeville), but what about East? I really wasn't sure about the location going in, but it was ideal and I wouldn't stay anywhere else! I think staying on the East side is the best kept secret of Kauai! It is conveniently located to head in either direction. We found an awesome, very private beach just minutes from the condo. There are a few restaurants within walking distance which is nice. The condo itself was great. Can't beat the ocean front view. We slept so soundly with the darkening shades! The kitchen comes fully equipped and there are beach essentials too like chairs, umbrella and cooler. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. I have already recommended this condo to friends and family and I wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else were I to return again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Dina, Thanks for the great review! I remember you weren't sure about the location at the outset, we're glad you've discovered the big secret...the east side rocks!! You are smack in the middle of the entire island, oceanfront of course. We also love the range of restaurants nearby you can walk to, from "toes in the sand", to bakeries, to organic food in a garden setting, to sushi, to pizza and beer, it's amazing! Keep telling our little "secret"...we love the referrals! Until your return, we wish you much Aloha, Crystal and Jim

Extreme serenity

  • 5 of 5

This was by far one of the best condos we have had the pleasure of experiencing. They had everything including beach chairs and a cooler for your use at the beach. It was the best location and easy to get to anywhere while on the best beach we experienced on Kauai. The beds were the most comfortable and the sheets were so nice, my husband wants to know where to purchase them. I highly recommend this condo directly overlooking a wonderful beach with plenty of good restaurants in walking distance.

Owner's Response: Aloha Sandy, Thanks for the review, I'm so glad you and your husband liked the new sheets! We change out the linens twice a year, and this brand of sheets came highly recommended. Shopping on an island is limited, that's why when visit 2 or 3 times a year, we bring many items in our suitcases! It's worth it to get comments like yours! Come back soon and visit again...Mahalo and Aloha, Crystal and Jim

Great location, amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo has an amazing view, you'll want to make sure you catch sunrise every morning as we did. The crashing waves on the very close beach below made for a pleasant background. This unit is very well stocked, everything you need in the kitchen, for the beach, and to entertain yourselves in the unit as well. The bed was very comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet at night and we rarely heard any roosters crowing, the same can not be said for other locations throughout the island. Simply put, this unit is a great value you will enjoy!

Owner's Response: Aloha, and thanks for the great review! Watching the sunrises is also one of our favorite things...the sky is never the same, and always beautiful. Glad you enjoyed the comfy bed, that memory foam topper makes all the difference. And you're right, you won't find a better oceanfront value on the island. Come back soon, until then wishing you much Aloha! Mahalo, Crystal and Jim

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.
