When you arrive on Kauai, Bernadette, my on-Island representative, will be at your disposal to make sure you have everything you need.

Kapaa is located on the East Side (Coconut Coast), Kauai

Kauai's East Side is sometimes referred to as the Coconut Coast for the groves of coconut palms that grow in its resort areas. The most populated district on the island, about 16,000 of the island's 62,000 residents reside in the Wailua/Kapaa area. Amongst the clusters of coconut trees you’ll find historic places, amazing beaches and memorable attractions.
In Wailua, you’ll find a variety of sightseeing opportunities and outdoor activities. Kayak the Wailua River in Wailua River State Park, take a boat ride to the Fern Grotto, or take photos at Opaekaa Falls. Don’t forget to try and spot the Sleeping Giant in the Nounou Mountains or take a hike up this scenic ridge. Sacred places like Polihau Heiau, the large lava-rock temple of Kauai’s last king, Kaumualii, can also be found on the East Side. And be sure to visit Kapaa Town to discover fine Hawaiian craft pieces, aloha-print shirts, jewelry and art.

But the golden beaches of the Coconut Coast may be the area’s biggest draw. Unwind at Anahola Beach Park, whale watch at Donkey Beach or watch the surfers at Kealia Beach to the north. Lydgate Beach Park in Wailua has two lava rock enclosed ocean pools that are perfect places for families and first-time snorkelers. Fun in the sun awaits you on the Coconut Coast.

We offer FREE parking in our gate-protected parking lot. For your convenience, we recommend renting a car to get around on Kauai. Our condo is conveniently located minutes away from Lihue Airport and very close to some of the most beautiful outdoor locations and attractions on Kauai, such as:
Opaekaa Falls, Kauai
With a roadside lookout, this is one of Kauai's most accessible major waterfalls.

Nounou Mountain (Sleeping Giant), Kauai
Legendary mountain range that looks like a sleeping giant featuring a scenic hiking trail.

Wailua River, Kauai.
Kauai has the only navigable rivers in Hawaii, and the Wailua River is one of the most popular.

Fern Grotto, Kauai.
The Fern Grotto is a beautiful lava-rock grotto covered with hanging ferns, popular for weddings.

Kapaa Town, Kauai.

This top floor unit stays cool because it is exposed to the ocean breeze and has higher ceilings than the lower floors. The ocean view is STUNNING! One of my favorite things to do: while enjoying a glass of wine on the Lanai you can listen to the relaxing sounds of the ocean and the palm fronds swaying in the breeze, the numerous singing birds, and watch the occasional monk seal taking a nap on the beach. Very relaxing! GE #W(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)

Lae Nani
410 Papaloa Road, Unit 431,
Kapaa, HI 96746

Dear Guest,

*Accommodations: The maximum occupancy for the condo is 6 people. We have one King size bed with a very comfortable mattress in the master bedroom and two twin beds in the guest bedroom that can be joined to make a Queen size bed at your request ($30 fee). At this time, we offer enough beds for 4 guests, but guests can rent additional beds locally. If you'd like, I can recommend a reliable company to handle the rental & set up of the beds. Please specify if needed.

*A note about roaches and ants: Lae Nani regularly sprays every unit for bugs. Yet bugs are simply a fact of life in a tropical climate, no matter how much you clean or spray. If you see insects please call me or Remax and we'll dispatch someone immediately to take care of it. Please note that it isn't a maintenance issue, but an issue of where we live and the fact that people often leave their lanai doors open. Practical advice to minimize insect pests: Buy a box of big Ziploc bags. Put ALL your open edibles in Ziplocs. This applies to cereal, cookies, etc. If you can't fit it in a Ziploc bag, then stick it in the refrigerator. Please make sure that trash is properly disposed of in the receptacle outside of the unit every night. Food left in the garbage inside the unit will attract ants and roaches. Plus, all used dishes should be cleaned and put away, just a few dirty plates left out for too long will quickly attract ants and roaches. Ultimately, your cleanliness will help ensure that you have a more pleasant experience. Thank you for your cooperation :)

A very beautiful place in Kapaa. The interior is very cozy and comfortable for a family of four. It is very clean and beautiful decor. The only downside is I wish there was an air conditioner. The private beach is heavenly. Best beach on the island. The kids stayed in the water for hours at a time. Beautiful view from our lanai also. I look forward to coming back to the island and booking with Claudia once again.
Claudia User Profile
Response from Claudia:
Aloha Francine, Thank you for taking the time to review my place. It's great to hear that it was very clean and you like the decor, as we just hired a new cleaning company and replaced a lot of the furniture (pictures coming soon). There is no AC at Lae Nani, which I mention on the listing description, but we are lucky to get trade winds from the ocean and we also supply ceiling and floor fans in every room. I agree with you that the beach is fantastic, especially the shallow children's enclosure, fun for days! I'm also happy to hear that you enjoyed the view from the Lanai, that is one of my favorite spots to dine and lounge while watching the waves and listening to the palm trees :) You and your family were fantastic guests, I do hope you get a chance to return soon! Mahalo, Claudia

Claudia's place was perfect for our family of 6. The view was awesome. The condo was practically brand new with nice furnishings. The kitchen was well stocked. We had all we needed for a nice family vacation.

Response from Claudia:
Dear Elizabeth, It's great to hear that your family of 6 were comfortable at the condo, I hope you created some nice memories while staying there. We did purchase new furnishings last month, thank you for noticing! Some of them are the dining table and chairs, Living room TV and media cabinet, bar stools, coffee table and corner chairs, two lamps, and the lounge chairs in the Lanai. It was my pleasure to meet you, I'd love to host you again anytime :) Mahalo, Claudia

The location of the unit was great and we enjoyed the beach, which was 100 feet from the place. The unit had a great brand new kitchen but otherwise was a bit more outdated than the pictures suggested. Overall, we enjoyed our stay but wished the unit had a washer and dryer inside.
Claudia User Profile
Response from Claudia:
Dear Dmitriy, I hope you enjoyed your vacation at my condo. Your review is appreciated, it is true that the location is great, that the beach is just steps away and that the kitchen is brand new, that is all fair. Even though I encourage constructive criticism, in this case I have to disagree with your statement that the unit was a bit more outdated than the pictures suggested because that is simply not accurate, we had a professional photographer take all the pictures in May 2016 and then did even more updates in August 2016. I feel I did everything I could to accommodate your requests and that my listing reflects the condo properly. I'm sorry it wasn't up to your expectations. Mahalo, Claudia

Ideal location - central part of the Island so going north and south was convenient. Stores/shops close by too. Amazing view and great condo complex. The unit had everything one would need and then some. Thrilled for the outdoor closet that had boogie boards, cooler, beach chairs, beach toys. I would stay at this unit again - no question. Certainly one of the loveliest vacations I have ever had.
Claudia User Profile
Response from Claudia:
Aloha Wendy, Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. I'm thrilled that you found the location to be convenient, I couldn't agree more, the ocean front view and the mid-Island location were definitely big pluses when we decided to buy the condo. The outdoor closet is always full of fun surprises, as guests keep adding to the pile of toys and beach necessities. I would love to host you again anytime! Mahalo, Claudia

The location was great, unit was clean and well stocked. We did get a bit hot with the lack of air conditioning. We enjoyed the view from the unit. Would recommend to anyone with a family of 5.

Response from Claudia:
Aloha Yvonne, I'm glad to hear that you liked the location and that the unit was clean and well stocked. The new kitchen and the ocean view are some of my favorite things about the condo. Thank you for bringing up that it got a bit hot, it's good to know, so in the future, I'll know how to make my guests more comfortable. When I'm there, I find that is helpful to get the ceiling fans going and opening the windows to take maximum advantage of those trade winds. Lae Nani does not have the electrical capacity to install AC complex-wide yet but it is being discussed. I really enjoyed hosting you and your family and hope you will return in the near future.
