Overview

About the property

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.

Very nice property for a relaxing visit.

  • 5 of 5

Though not cheap, the unit is first rate and quite appealing. The view is even better than the picture and the grounds are well-maintained. We enjoyed our stay (we're seniors who really appreciate a pleasant situation rather than constant activities) and wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Lae Nani 231. The condo was clean and nicely appointed. The kitchen was well stocked. And the view was fantastic! I was a bit concerned about not having air conditioning, but we were never too hot - especially at night. There were almost always breezes coming through the windows, and the fans kept the air moving as well.

We would definitely rent this property again.

7th Trip - Lae Nani 231 is by far the best unit!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Lae Nani complex 7 times and this by far is the best unit. There was absolutely nothing to complain about. That is a rarity. The unit was beautiful. The lanai was the perfect location to catch early morning, mid day AND afternoon sun! The bed was incredible. We slept well every night. We will be making reservations for next year for this unit again, and hopefully for years to come.

A shot from the lanai is now my screen saver

  • 5 of 5

This location is just as beautiful as the photo. The grounds are very well-maintained. The large pool was cleaned daily during our 2-week stay. The immediate neighborhood is seaside resorts and comparable condos.

Easy walks to basic groceries, Hawaii-themed boutiques, and a number of good restaurants (recommend Street Burger, Bobby Vs Pizza, Lava Lava, Cafe Coco, Oasis, and there are many others).

Lae Nani is far enough from Kuhio Highway to minimize traffic noise. Note that there is LOTS of traffic, so don't expect recreational driving on Kauai. Non-beach walking is sidewalks and roadside. Standard USA stuff is also walkable or short drive - Safeway, Starbucks, chain drugstore, fast food etc.

Adjacent to the north is a long row of beach resorts with restaurants, spas, bars and open walkways along the beach. It's easy to find live music/happy hour at the resorts, but nightlife shuts down at 9.

The Lae Nani beach has a shallow rock-walled tide pool ideal for kids. Just steps to the north is a mile of uncrowded, open beach. Kauai beaches have spectacular surf, fairly coarse sand, and some rock.

231 looks just like the picture. Lovely interior design, nice modern kitchen, a large shower plus a hallway half bath. I had a cold so I got to check out the sofa bed, and it was comfortable. There's a quarter-operated laundry room.

Steve/Homeaway gave good directions. When we arrived the condo was acceptably clean but not immaculate. Onsite property manager was nice. Other than families at the pool and beach, we rarely heard neighbors, occasionally could hear guests at the neighboring resort but after 9 it's VERY quiet - except for the surf. No AC so midday the fans are sometimes needed. After sunset the breeze moves through the condo and it feels WONDERFUL.

Highly recommended - we will definitely return, if all these positive reviews don't completely fill the calendar!

Paradise in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Lae Nani 231 is a spectacular 1 BR, 1.5 bath condo. The pictures in its listing are beautiful, yet still don't do it justice. The condo was immaculately clean when we arrived. The view includes the gorgeous grounds, the beautiful pool, the ocean, and the mountains. The sound of the surf can be heard throughout the condo. The kitchen is glorious, with top-shelf appliances, granite counters, and super-well-stocked. All the artwork is beautiful. The lanai is oversized with really nice furniture. There's a great selection of pool and beach goodies. The bedroom is spacious, the bed is a fabulously comfortable king with memory foam. The master and hall baths are modern and spacious. (My wife wants to take the shower home!) All lights are on dimmers, and electronics in BR and LR are all top-notch, including ultra high speed Wifi. The property itself is delightful, with a very usable beach, a great pool, 3 Weber grills that are well-maintained, laundry facility, and convenient parking. One thing to be aware of... if you love sunrises, you'll need to leave your room and take a short walk to the beach next door (in front of Lava Lava) to really appreciate it. At least that was our experience in December. We've stayed at some wonderful places in Kauai, but we've found a new home away from home in Lae Nani 231.
