If Hawaii means "ocean" to you, why would you stay anywhere else?

About Jim and Crystal
My husband and I grew up in Northern California, traveled extensively thanks to his Naval career, (retired CDR 2001) and have always felt called to be near the ocean. We've been blessed to own this little jewel since June 2012, and love our little "home away from home". We especially like to dine out on the lanai...you won't find a table with a better ocean view at any restaurant! Thinking of a multi-island trip? In October 2015 we purchased an oceanfront studio on Maui. If you book a visit to both our condos on Kauai and Maui, we will waive Maui's cleaning fee of $115. They must be consecutive stays, booked at the same time, for 5 nights or longer at each condo, totaling 10 nights or more. Email for more information. Why go to Hawaii, if you can't be oceanfront! Our unit is at Pohailani Maui in the Kahana area of West Maui, and you can see the listing at vrbo.com/770866. We love all of Hawaii, and especially Kauai for the incomparable beauty and rich lush landscapes. It offers diverse adventure, in an uncrowded atmosphere, and hearkens back to the Hawaii of old. We’re happy to share our condos, and spread the Aloha!
Jim and Crystal purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Jim and Crystal chose Kapaa
Being just 10 minutes from the airport on the east side of Kauai offers convenience and easy access to the entire island. With Wailua Bay View #214, you'll have a front seat to the ocean overlooking beautiful Wailua Bay. Come enjoy real Hawaii, with all the comforts of home! With a full kitchen, you'll spend less on eating out. Pack lightly, because you have a washer/dryer in the unit.
What makes this Condo unique
Within seconds of walking into this condo, as you approach the sliding doors to the lanai, you will experience the breezes, the roar of the surf, and the wide open ocean in front of you! You'll watch surfers, paddle boarders, and sometimes outrigger canoe races! Watch for the occasional turtle bobbing in the waves, and whales in the winter. At night, you'll be lulled to dreamland by the sound of the crashing waves. The moon rising and reflecting off the water will be stunning! (Try to come during a full moon!) You'll feel right at home, and won't want to leave!

Great place to stay
My wife and I spent 5 nights Here as part of our trip to Hawaii for our honeymoon. The condo was great it was fully stocked and had everything we needed for our time there. The view was amazing and the sounds of the waves were great! The owners gave us a ton of info and were very easy to deal with and helpful. The grounds at the condo were very well maintained and the location was great for getting around the island, also walking distance to a bunch of great restaurants. Would definitely recommend this place to others.
Aloha Chris, so glad you enjoyed your honeymoon on beautiful Kauai, and our condo is part of your special memories! We'd love to host you for that 2nd or 3rd honeymoon too! We visit our condo 2 or 3 times a year, to make sure everything is exactly right for our guest's special vacations. We wish you much Aloha as you begin a life together! Mahalo nui loa, Crystal and Jim
Unit was overall ok although we were unable to get to beach easily as pictures might show.
I continue to enjoy booking with VRBO properties. Value is good and owners very good to work with. Location of getting in and out of properties is a bit tricky but overall good location on island.
Aloha Karen, thanks for the review, and mentioning the great value of staying in our unit. I guess our string of 38 consecutive 5-star reviews had to end sometime! We continually upgrade and improve our condo, and visit frequently to maintain it. Beach access is just a few minutes walk past the end of the complex, as we clearly state in the visitor guide we've written, and send to our guests. We like the privacy at Wailua Bay View Condos. While sitting out on our lanai, gazing at the ocean, you're not watching the beachgoers walking to and from the beach. We think the privacy and serenity is well worth those few extra steps for beach access. Wailua Bay View is up on a steep bluff (hence the fantastic view), and a direct beach path is not possible. We've timed it, its a 2 minute walk from our door. Mahalo and aloha, Crystal and Jim
Great place to stay. Beautiful ocean view, condo has everything you need to experience this beautiful island. Here 2 weeks and we will hopefully be back soon.
Aloha Marilyn, thanks for the review, and especially for being one of our "returnees"! We're so happy you chose our condo again for your vacation, and we're glad you enjoyed the upgrades we've made since your last visit. Please come back soon, and until then we wish you much Aloha! Mahalo nui loa, Crystal and Jim
Ocean view oasis
The property was great! Right on the ocean & with all the amenities of home. The air conditioning in the bedroom was helpful for falling asleep at night & really not missed at all in the other parts of the unit as there can be a pretty good cross breeze. The beach towels, chairs & snorkel gear were a huge plus! Crystal was so accommodating & even allowed us to drop off our luggage early on our arrival day & was very communicative getting back to us quickly when we had questions & even gave info on nearby restaurants (which were on point! You must check out the Lava Lava Beach club which is a short walk & the bakery across the street!), shopping, etc. The visitor guide was most helpful! The location in Kapaa was great as it made it very easy to access other parts of the island for exploring! Would love to come back & stay here again & again! There’s nothing like relaxing in the evening or while having your morning coffee on the lanai while listening to the waves!
Aloha Tiffany, thanks for the review! We're so glad you felt like you were "home". Having someplace homey to return to after a busy day of island activities gives you a sense of place. Much more than an impersonal, cookie-cutter hotel. And we're happy you made good use of the visitor guide we send our guests! The research is fun for us, and it spotlights local businesses you may not otherwise notice. You are so invited to come back again and again! Mahalo nui loa and aloha, Crystal and Jim
bucket list fulfilled
the view was amazing..the location very convenient..the condo provided all the amenities..thanks to Jim and Crystal for a beautiful vacation.
Aloha Dale, we love helping others fulfill their bucket list! So glad you enjoyed Kauai, and our condo. We'd love to host you again, and until then we wish you much Aloha! Mahalo nui loa, Crystal and Jim
Another Fantastic Stay
This was our second stay in this condo and once again it exceeded expectations. There have been several upgrades since our last visit, including a very comfortable new mattress, a new sofa and a reclining rocking chair. Communication from Crystal and Jim was always very prompt and the information they provide both beforehand, and in the condo itself, is detailed and helpful. The condo is very well stocked with just about anything you would need to enhance your vacation. We made plenty of use of the beach chairs, umbrellas and cooler boxes for days at the beach. We brought takeout back to the condo a couple of times to enjoy on the lovely Lanai watching the surfers. The location is perfect - walking distance of beaches and restaurants with only a couple of minutes drive to Foodland, Safeway and Longs (as well as even more restaurants). The free parking is plentiful and right outside and it is only a short drive to the airport. It feels like a real “home from home” and we can’t wait to visit again. Mahalo!
Aloha Fiona, it was so nice to have you and your husband back for a second time! We're so glad you enjoyed the updates we've made since your last visit. You especially liked the new Cal King mattress, so much that you emailed me for specific info to purchase one yourselves! When we recently replaced all the bedroom furniture, we were happy to find a gel-infused cool-sleeping memory foam mattress at a local mattress store. You can find cheaper mattresses at the big box store, but we like to support local Kauai businesses, And we love that mattress too! We hope you can come back a third time, and until then we wish you much Aloha! Mahalo, Crystal and Jim
