We're delighted to start the new year off with a bang and a great assortment of new condo listings on Kauai's east side. Many people who come to this island are told to go to Princeville, on the North Shore, or Poipu, on the South Shore. Those are our two most popular resort areas and there are lots of condos for people to choose from. However, not that many people are aware of the many wonderful condo complexes on Kauai's eastern shores, sometimes referred to as the Coconut Coast.
While the tourists often demand North or South, the east side has an assortment of condos that are right on the ocean. In Poipu, the condos on the ocean are generally on rocks, and in Princeville, the entire community is built on a bluff some 100 ft. above the ocean. For Princeville, that provides dramatic views, but walking to the ocean from your Princeville condo is not for the faint of heart. PLUS, being on the east side has its advantages. There is great shopping in Kapaa and you are only 15 minutes from Costco, Home Depot, Macy's and lots more. You are ten minutes from the airport. Did i hear you say, "How convenient?" I thought so.
So that brings me to our new year's listings.
Kaha Lani View from unit
We start with Kaha Lani. This 1 BR/1.5 BA unit is uniquely positioned behind the popular Wailua Golf Course and adjacent to Lydgate Park. It's so secretly tucked in by the ocean, many people don't even know it exists. This quiet complex is right on the oceanfront and has a lovely pool, a putting green, and walking paths that are just delightful. Our unit, 116, is a ground floor unit with nice ocean views from the living room and lanai. Unit 116 is also tucked one building back from the front line, which buffers the unit from strong winds and makes it quite quiet and private. View our VIRTUAL TOUR and check out the MLS listing. Priced at $609,000 with a 10k credit for buyer upgrades (like new counters and travertine floors in bathrooms).
Wailua Bay View looking at Wailua Bay Beach just steps away.
Traveling North to Wailua, we've got two remodeled units at the Wailua Bay View Resort. These 1 bedroom condos are perched right above Wailua Bay just across the street from the legendary Coco Palms, where Elvis filmed Blue Hawaii. Listen to the sound of the ocean while you sip your morning coffee. Both units have been nicely upgraded and are ready to go. PLUS, these units are active vacation rentals with over 90% occupancy. Wailua Bay Views has the lowest monthly maintenance fees on this street of condos. View the VIRUTAL TOUR for UNIT 203 & UNIT 205 and check out the MLS listing. These are priced at $633,000 and $669,000 respectively.
Late afternoon shadows from the lanai at unit 316 at Lae Nani. Simply gorgeous
Finally, our unit 316 at Lae Nani is a 2BR/2BA unit at one of the loveliest complexes on the entire island. A beautiful pool just steps from the ocean, and lush tropical grounds for walking or chilling, are some of the wonderful qualities of Lae Nani. This 1,072 sq. ft. unit affords spacious living and has 4 very large closets. You can never have enough closets. At our first open house last week, we had over 20 people come in including some people who have owned units at Lae Nani since 1978, the year they were built. Priced at $749,000, this is the lowest priced two-bedroom unit in the complex. Tell your friends. View the VIRTUAL TOUR for LAE NANI and check out the MLS listing.
Well, there a diverse sampling of wonderful oceanfront condos. Hoping to see you on the Garden Island soon.
