Interaction with Guests
I am more than happy to help you with the reservation process and answer any questions you might have.
When you arrive on Kauai, Remax, my on-Island agents, 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 soem 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.
Other Things to Note
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!
Have fun and make the most out of your vacation in Kauai, upon arrival, please contact me if there's an issue and I or my on-Island agent, Remax will do our very best to address it as soon as possible. My goal is for you to have a fantastic time in Kauai and I'll be more than happy to help you achieve that :)

Lae Nani - RENTAL RULES AND REGULATIONS
410 Papaloa Road, Unit 431,
Kapaa, HI 96746
*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 :)

This was a perfect stay for me and my family!
Communicating with Claudia before and during the trip was easy and she was extremely responsive. Already weeks before the stay Claudia contacted me to make sure everything was setup correctly, to see if everyone in my party was okay with climbing stairs and how we wanted the second bedroom to be setup.
She also offered help planning our stay, checked in a few times to see if we were doing well and was very flexible with checkin and checkout times.
The apartment itself was great and just as advertised. It was very clean, spacious, comfortable and the location was perfect. It even had a bunch of fun things to take to the beach (boogie boards!!! :) )
I would totally stay at Claudia's apartment again when I come back to Kauai. This was one of my best experiences with Airbnb!
Claudia's place is a great spot to enjoy your stay in Kauai. It's a very spacious 2BD and 2 Bath. It's on the 3rd floor of a 3 story building with an amazing view of the ocean from the back porch. I highly recommend staying at Claudia's place. It's located in Kapaa (about 9 miles north from the airport). Kapaa is a centrally located town with a cool downtown area with various restaurants, a coffee shop and a couple souvenir stores. I will definitely be back!
We have been to Kauai many times & this was by far our favorite location. Condo was clean and efficient, view was amazing and the beach was absolutely perfect for our kiddo's. Very convenient to stores, restaurants and shopping. We will for sure be back!
It's great to hear you liked my condo and the location, especially since you have been to Kauai before, I take it as a huge compliment. It looks like you took advantage of all the beauty Kauai has to offer, good for you!
I'd love to have you and your family back anytime :)
A real oceanfront it is :)
Our two young families (4 adults and 2 toddlers) had a lovely thanksgiving week at the condo. It is comfortably designed, well equipped, and has a really wonderful ocean view. The public areas outside are great - wide grass area, swimming pool and a super-nice beach - all within 50 meters of your front door. Claudia was very helpful - flexible and responsive to all of our requests.
We couldn't have loved this spot more. It's incredible.
First, Claudia was a great host. We never met in person, but she was great about providing all of the info we would need, and far ahead of time. I never felt like I was lacking info, and she was very responsive about questions I had.
The condo itself was as described in terms of rooms, layout of the property, etc. But that doesn't do it justice. The condo is on the 3rd (top) floor of it's building so it has a great view of the property. The private cove area is *wonderful*. Unless we wanted waves for boogie boarding, etc, there wasn't much of a reason to leave that cove for another beach. It's peaceful, the water is great, the residents are quiet and respectful. It's easy to snorkel or paddleboard in the cove (we rented a SUP at a place 3 mins away by car). And when you want to hop back inside, you walk across a lawn and you're home. Heaven.
We ate breakfast and most dinners on the balcony. Kapaa town is an easy drive up the road - restaurants, groceries, it's all there. The town is adorable, and you can walk along a great (paved) path along the shore for miles.
This was the highlight of a 3 week trip to HI, including 2 stays in Kailua (which we loved as well...but Claudia's place in Kailua rocks). If we come back to Kauai, we're staying at Claudia's again for sure, no question about it.
Thank you for your review. It makes me so happy to learn that you had a a great time at my home in Kauai. All those things you mention, the beach, the path along the shore, the meals out on the Lanai, the nearby restaurants...(I could go on and on) are also my favorite activities while visiting my home in Kauai.
I hope you'll return and visit soon, I would love to host you again anytime :)
Wow! I'm really glad I stayed at Claudia's Condo. This place was very CLEAN, COMFY, and CENTERALY located to all. The house is as presented in the pictures, and the view from the balcony is incredible! Another thing I enjoyed was the layout of the condo, the grounds were safe, and quite.
I was not expecting a cooler, boogie board, or snorkel gear....I really appreciated these extra's that made my first visit to Kauai a memorable one. I would diffidently stay here again and or recommend this condo to others.
I really appreciated how thorough Claudia was to all the details, and tips while staying at her condo.
Thank You for letting me enjoy a little slice of your island paradise.

Great ambiance, great food,
Excellent food nearby.
Great spot for break fast, walking distance from the condo.
Friend fish cooked to perfection. Need I say more?
Good selection, close to the condo.
Wonderful view from the highway, short drive from our condo.
Walking distance from condo, friendly staff, healthy food, live music on weekend nights. Fun place :)
Wailua River State Park ranges over 1,000 acres and includes Lydgate Park, some archeological sites, and a picnic area at the south side of the river. It is also near a number of heiau.
Great place to buy food, wine & beach supplies...or eat lunch.
I can't recommend this tapas restaurant enough, drive out to Hana Lei and enjoy the dishes expertly prepared by our friend Christophe, resident chef. Try to spot the celebrities...
If you are looking to try your hand at snorkeling, this is a great place. It is such a supreme snorkeling location because it has a massive reef that is so large it can be seen from space.
