Nice apartment, well located, walking distance to many stores, restaurants, outdoor activities. Great cheap golf course a few miles away (5 minutes drive). Calm place, nice beach, very nice big pool. One detail, we like to cook and it is our first Vrbo/Airbnb that has sharpened kitchen knives - many thanks to the host.
We will definitely come back to this place on our next trip to Kauai.
NOT a 5 star property
I am more disappointed with the previous reviewers than the property owners. These reviews should be for the assistance of potential rentors, so they can make educated decisions about a place they have never seen. Instead, previous reviewers found it necessary to sugar-coat this place, probably out of consideration to the owner's feelings.
This place has no A/C, and multiple sqeaky fans, and deferred maintenance. Not a good place for a good night's rest on Kauai in July.
Other reviewers are correct about this being a good location for a first visit to Kauai. I have friends who love and recommend Poipu in the south. We almost followed their advice and got a place there. We ended up liking the north better, near Hanalei and Ha'ena state park. Kapa'a is a great middle point to see the entire island.
This complex also has beautifully maintained grounds. The pool is wonderful. The complex manager is pleasant while still educating guests and enforcing the rules. The complex is quiet and peaceful. It is right on a great beach with a great protected swim area for kids. It is walking distance from a nice shopping and dining area.
This particular unit has too much deferred maintenance to be considered 5-star. The lack of A/C is not unique to this unit. I assume it is the entire complex, but it was the most noticeable deficiency. The broken blinds in both bedrooms made it difficult to get much air flowing through. Due to this, we stayed out as long as we could, and did not look forward to returning each night. Sleeping was hot and uncomfortable. We were unable to get the 2nd bathroom shower to even turn on, and the toilet leaked (probably a flapper valve). One electrical outlet sparked at my wife the first day when she tried to charge her phone. The other outlets charged extremely slow for some reason.
Our actual cost was 25% more than the listing indicates when adding in cleaning fees, taxes, and booking fees. They are up front about this in the booking process, but it means local hotels might be just as affordable in the end.
The owners seemed to do their best to make us comfortable. If you are looking for a 3 star accommodation in a great location during cooler months, then this place is an acceptable option. I just wish reviewers would be more honest and transparent.
Great place to stay
Nice location, plenty of room , food and shopping close, having 2 bathrooms was great !
Great ground floor place
This is a clean and comfortable ground floor apartment in Lae Nani. It has an ocean view from the patio and is an easy walk to the beach and the pool. It was nice being on the ground so that our kids could run around and play on the lawn. Well equipped kitchen made it easy to cook.
Exactly what we had hoped!
This property is beautiful and very centrally located! The beach and pool are clean as was the condo and surrounding grounds. We'll definitely be back!
This place was awesome! The ocean view from the back door is terrific, but also the grounds of the comlplex are amazing. The plants and tropical landscaping exemplify the "Garden Island".
We had everything we needed in the condo and were very comfortable. We traveled with our older teens and having twin beds in the second bedroom was perfect. The condo location is perfect for day trips all over the island. Mahalo!
