Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Kapaa - Lae Nani #231

1 bedroom 1.5 bath top floor corner unit - very private

Lae Nani 231 is located on Kauai's beautiful coconut coast. The unit overlooks the pool, lawn, beach, ocean and majestic mountains. We are located on the top floor in a corner end unit, which affords ultimate privacy. Panoramic ocean views are available from the living room, dining room, kitchen and lanai.

Complete renovation finished Sept. 2013. Living room and dining room accented with bamboo crown molding and tiger wood floors. Kitchen and entry floors have inlayed travertine borders on porcelain. The kitchen is equipped with brand new stainless steel appliances including refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher and stove. Also includes new stainless steel cookware, coffee maker, french press and electric kettle. The counters are finished in magma granite.

Master bedroom is carpeted with premium carpet. It is appointed with a king bed and new 14' memory foam mattress and fine linens. The queen size sleeper sofa is equipped with a plush bed mattress (5 star on amazon). All interior doors are solid teak, plantation style.

Rainforest marble counters in both baths and inlayed marble on travertine floors. Master bath has large shower lined in travertine and decorative tile. Built in bench and hand held or stationary showerheads. Luxury towels provided.

Smart TV's are located in both living room and bedroom. State of the art wireless high speed internet enables streaming of Netflix movies without buffering. 2.1 sound bar in living room also allows you to stream music from your bluetooth device. Also available is a Bose sounddock 10 in the bedroom.

The lanai is furnished with a bar height table that seats four. This allows for an unobstructed view over the railing. We have also provided a large cushioned chair and ottoman which is perfect for relaxing and reading or just enjoying the magnificent surroundings.

The sandy beach allows easy access for swimming, boogeyboarding, or just floating in the warm waters of the Pacific. Most often safe but can be dangerous when surf is large. The 'keiki pool' (children's pool) is surrounded by lava rock to create a shallow natural pool with a sand bottom., a safer spot for the little one.

This unit is walking distance, on the beach path, to the famous Hukilau Lanai restaurant. It is also a short walk to the Coconut Marketplace which offers eateries, galleries, boutiques and a convenience store.

Some onsite conveniences are coin-operated laundry and gas operated barbecues. Lighted tennis courts and heated pool. These amenities are all exceptionally well maintained. The grounds are immaculate and lush with many local varieties of flowers and plants. Kauai is truly the 'Garden Isle'.

Lae Nani is centrally located on the east shore just a 30 minute drive to the north shore, Princeville and Hanalei Bay. Poipu beach is 30 minutes to the south.

Hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, surfing and Golfing areas are abundant. Waterskiing and wakeboarding are also available on nearby Wailua River.

Please be aware that there is no elevator.

Mahalo for visiting our site! We look forward to hearing from you.

About Stephen Childers

We have been coming to Kauai for the last 30 years, the same number of years we have been married. We are both native Californians, living in north Monterey. As a surfer of 50 years, I have to admit that most of our trips were surf trips. There remains many places left on Kauai for us to discover.

Stephen Childers purchased this condo in 2013

Why Stephen Childers chose Kauai

We were looking a properties in Poipu and Princeville for some time as that is where most of our friends live. But upon seeing the listing photo of this property(the bay view from lanai) we immediately made an offer and purchased it. We have been on island many times and stayed at quite a few places, but we like Lae Nani the best. It's not just the spectacular views or the beautiful grounds but also the serenity of the location. The Heiau (ancient Hawaiian Ruins) on the point in front, the sound of the surf thoughout the day and night is just magical.

Also, everything you need is nearby.

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this amazing condo for 9 days. The condo itself was very clean and well maintained. We had no issues for our stay. The property is on the third floor and there is no elevator. The condo has no AC but there are fans and ceiling fans. Surprisingly this was not a big concern as the breeze was cool. The view is amazing from the lanai. You just have to see it for yourself. The condo is very close to shops, stores, and restaurants. Also kitchen has everything you need including a blender and a rice cooker. There is also two smart TVs. One in the living room and one in the bedroom. So if your feeling like it, you can just Netflix and chill. There are beach stuff available to use including boogie boards, beach umbrella and chair. In just a short walk, you can access the beach across your lanai.There is a kiddie pool that kids can swim in and super shallow. Even with big waves it wasn't an issue. I swan in the beach next to the kiddie pool and the waves looked big but it was actually pretty good for swimming if you can swim. The water is not very clear because the area is close to the Waliua river. Overall, we had a great time and would recommend to anyone. If you have a mobility issue walking up the stairs might be an issue, and if you are not used to having an AC in a tropical place this place might not be for you. As with any tropical islands, there are bugs too. Don't be afraid, use Raid! Throw your garbage everyday!

Thank you Steve your place was amazing. The kids loved the place, especially the cool looking corner table.

Amazing Property with an Incredibile View

  • 4 of 5

The view, the view, the view is amazing!!! The grounds of the condo are well kept. The lanai was nice but needed to be cleaned daily due to the birds. I would stay here again! We loved it! Just a few things would make it perfect. Stephan was very accommodating and helpful. The construction did not really impact our stay because they weren't working on our building except for 1 day. If you book this condo you will not be disappointed. The kitchen and baths are updated. Small issue: the furnishing in the living room (couch cushions & dining cushions) are outdated and faded.

True Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations! So beautiful both inside and out - in addition to being so peaceful and quiet - no roosters waking you up all hours of the night either! Nicely equipped and we didn't lack for anything during our week's stay. Location is great! We drove the entire island yet enjoyed being able to walk to nearby places for food, drinks and shopping. There are stairs to get to the third floor but that is what provides the outstanding view - and gives you a little exercise too. Hated to leave and dream of returning. Will definitely recommend it to those I know planning a trip to Kauai - my favorite island now!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The owner Steve is a pleasure to work with and the condo is pristine and modern. The location is ideal for seeing Kauai as it is an easy drive to get to both the North and South Shores. Parking was always readily available and the other guests were very chill. Noise was never a problem. Highly recommend!

Beautiful and as described!

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in an ideal location: easy drive from the airport and a great central location to tour the entire island of Kauai. The condo is clean and comfortable with an amazing view of the tropical property and ocean. We ate every breakfast on the balcony listening to the waves on the shore and enjoying the soft island breeze. The pictures don't do the actual view justice. We were looking for a place to just relax. It proved to be a great choice; quiet, well appointed with anything you'd need from appliances to beach gear. There wasn't a day that we didn't spend time at the beach and the fantastic pool.

The only things that I'd want people to be aware of is that it is on the third floor, only stairs, and the unit is not air conditioned. During our stay, there were a couple of nights that we truly wish we'd had air conditioning. The fan in the bedroom needs the chain that controls the speed replaced-----only on low speed it did not provide any relief. Working with the owner was easy and there were no issues----replies were prompt, directions great, refund on deposit timely.

Hints: there is a small grocery store a mile north where you can get local caught fish for grilling on the three Weber gas grills down by the pool. While that store has most everything you need, it is expensive and limited. For general shopping, go to the safeway store north or, south of Lae Nani. Restaurants to go to: The Beach House, Jo 2, Hukilau Lanai, and Bouchon's. Things to do: Kauai ATV tours, coffee plantation, Holo - Holo Napali Coast Snorkel and Sail.
