Remember the good ole days wearing flip flops, sun in your eyes and without the worries. This condo will offer that awe moment where you listen to the motion of waves, mesmerized by blue waters, and where meditation just happens.

Most sought after prime location on the Garden Isle. Near the mouth of the Wailua river, centrally located between north and south shores, making all attractions easy.

Coconut coast has the perfect blend of temperature from both north and south making this an ideal destination. Properties with this proximity to the ocean are rare. Where else can you go and jump on a bicycle, go in either direction on a coastal bike path that lead you to white sand beaches, snorkel in either direction, Kayak or paddle board up the Wailua river, walk to shop, hike an historic trail, or head over to listen to some local live music.

Once home to the historic royalty, and recently named by Forbes magazine as the prettiest little towns. This unique gem is the site of an old Japanese Shinto temple with an old rock etched with kanji still remains of its presence. This condo is well equipped with all you need from ceiling fans, to a full kitchen making this the perfect getaway. This direct ocean gem will whisk you away with its ocean breeze, private Lanai and meandering pathways lined with palms, gingers, and other tropical flora that lead you to your door. Most sought after destination points by locals of neighboring islands..

The Zen Design is minimalist but elegant. Everything in the unit is meant to calm the spirit and rest the eye. A perfect retreat for just letting go, away from it all and yet perfectly situated to be accessible to Kauai's best.

Why this property-- location, location, location. You do not get any closer to the ocean or beach then here! You have no highway noises, no parking fees, no check in fees, no nightly amenity fees, no wifi fees, you have no massive buildings.. Simple, peaceful and charming. 'Old hawaii' is waiting for you.

This property is very new to being privately managed. I just remodeled the entire unit. so everything is new and fresh.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the very first seconds we felt in love with Mary's place, it was for sure what was described and even better, the view is out of this world, we never thought it was going to be that beautiful, imaging having the ocean right next to you when you sleep... very very very special. We cooked almost every day since it has a complete kitchen, anything you need for cooking or baking is here. There was snorkeling gear, binoculars, music, cable TV, the bed (wow fantastic and very comfortable). The location of the place is perfect because it has a mini-private beach and it is nearby many places for groceries shopping and souvenirs. A couple of friends that stayed at the Marriot Hotel told us, after visiting us for a day, that next time they will definitely choose this place for their stay. And the place was very clean and organized perfectly. Regarding Mary, she responds very quickly to any phone calls, and she addresses any questions or concerns in the same call, so that was very assuring for us which made us feel we are in good hands and under a very serious person in charge. Thanks Mary, it was an honor to spend those 8 days at your place, and we will come back again, and again, and again. Loved it! 5+ stars!


Response from Mary:

Aloha Gustavo, It was a complete pleasure having you stay at this amazing ocean gem. We are looking forward to your return Mahalo Mary

Ocean Gem was very well stocked and very clean. The view of the ocean from the lanai was beautiful. We even saw whales one morning! It was very relaxing. We loved it!

Nice small resort

  • 4 of 5

Lovely place to stay, we were there at a time with crazy storms, so the water was brown most of the time...but any other time the view would be great. Will come back again, hopefully to better weather conditions!!

What a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This Condo was perfect!

It was well equipped, clean and the bed was comfortable. The view from the balcony was wonderful and the sound of crashing waves lulled us to sleep every night.

The location in Kapa'a was a good choice for exploring all of the island of Kauai--west to the Waimea Canyon, North to Princeville and with quick access to the airport.

The only negative is crawling traffic through Kapa'a.

I highly recommend Ocean Gem and would stay there again.

Beautiful condo in a fantastic location!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from our stay in Ocean Gem and it was fantastic! The unit is in a beautiful and peaceful setting overlooking the beach. The complex was very quiet and we hardly saw anyone even when the parking lot was full. We ate in almost every night and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The bathroom is a bit small, but well appointed. The furnishings were comfortable including the bed. The lanai overlooks a little bay and we spent every evening and morning enjoying the view. There is great wifi and a nice TV (that we never turned on!). There was even a nice bottle of wine for us as a welcome gift when we arrived!

Great view , modern amenities

  • 4 of 5

After spending 3 nights on a unique , but cramped boat this condo was a welcomed respite . Felt spacious , lovely view , big bed and nice large kitchen area . Well maintained , lush garden area , walking distance to lots of amenities .

Only negative .... Was if you are a light sleeper and the weather gets stormy , the noise from the crashing waves may keep you awake !

I,ve had worse problems in my life ! .... Lol

Owner's Response: Aloha Gerard We welcome your only negative that the sounds of the ocean can be too loud. That is not a bad thing to have. To have a condo that sits right on the edge of a beautiful cove and to hear the sounds of the roaring ocean is so comforting, refreshing and exhilarating. Definitely healthy for the soul. Mahalo Mary

Perfect ocean front studio

  • 5 of 5

The moment you enter the unit, the pride of ownership is apparent. The unit was extremely well equipped , comfortable, clean and had a couple beautiful pieces of art . Having your private deck right on the ocean was Spectacular. The owner was very responsive and Monica reliably showed up weekly for towels and sheets. I would absolutely book here again on future trips.

East Coast of Kauai, centrally located to access both the south and north shores. Near the mouth of the Wailua River, easy access to Kayaking, hiking, snorkeling and paddle boarding. This is the begining of the beautiful bike path that snugs the coast line for miles.
