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!
Pool / Spa

This condo was spacious, comfortable and just what we needed. We loved making this condo our home away from home and falling asleep to the ocean waves. Will be back!
This rental is ideally located. Only 10 minutes from the airport and walking distance to lots of restaurants and stores. Very private lanai and a quiet complex. Comfortable furniture and all the beach toys are provided. Thanks for sharing your condo
This was a great place to stay. Location just far enough from airport where you are not in the flightpath but close enough it doesn't take more than 10-15 min to get there. So many little shops and restaurants in walking distance too!
Aloha Denise, mahalo for the great review! I knew you were happy when you emailed mid-stay, to say everything was perfect, and you were having a lovely stay. Glad you enjoyed our restaurant recommendations, and had many good meals. With the airport about 10 miles away, it's convenient for your arrival, and we like to sit on the lanai at night, look way down beyond Wailua Bay, and watch the planes come in and take off. There's thousands of stars, and no sounds except the ocean...perfect! Come back soon, mahalo nui loa, Crystal and Jim
We have been to Kauai 6 times and have always stayed at the Wailua Bay View Condos which is just perfect for us. Then we found Jim & Crystal's unit...FABULOUS! We have stayed in this unit 3 times now. They have put a lot of love and thought into making this condo. We can not say enough! This is the place to stay on the East Side. Cool breezes and great food near by.When sit out the lania you will know what we mean. FABULOUS!
Aloha Wendy, so wonderful to hear you had a great time at our condo! It was our pleasure to host you for the third time, and let's look forward to the fourth! We think you are FABULOUS! Wishing you much continued good health and Aloha, Crystal and Jim
This condo is fabulous! From the views to the attention to detail that the owners have given to this unit is wonderful. The furniture was comfortable and it was beautifully decorated. Everything you could need is provided.... We had a wonderful time and I would definitely stay here again!
Aloha Debbie, thanks for the review! You and your husband were to first guests to experience our new bedroom furniture, linens, pillows, etc! It sounds like you liked the updates we'd just made, we visit two or three times a year to improve and refresh our condo. Hope we can host you again soon! Mahalo nui loa, Crystal and Jim
