A Heavenly Location by the Sea
Live life to the fullest as you vacation along Kauai’s spectacular beachfront. Our Lanikai vacation rentals are located along the island’s eastern coastline, which is lined with beautiful white sand beaches. The beach fronting Lanikai is known for its swimming areas surrounded by lava rocks, creating calm pools great for children. Outside the rock area is another swimming area ideal for adults and older children who enjoy playing in the waves. The white sand beach is perfect for lounging along the shoreline and soaking in the scenery!
Upscale Living with Ocean Views
The views continue on the interior of our Lanikai vacation rentals, which front the ocean. These accommodations boast beautiful great rooms with a large wall of glass doors that open up to the sea. Thanks to the oversized doors, the views are equally as amazing from the interior of the condo as they are from your private lanai. With buildings situated right along the coastline, there’s little more than a narrow stretch of manicured lawn separating you from the silky sands of the shoreline.
From inside your Lanikai beach rental, enjoy spacious living in the great room, where you’ll find plush couches and easy chairs on which to relax. These accommodations are decorated in pleasing neutral colors with understated tropical touches. Since the island breezes generally come from the east, you can almost always count on a steady cooling breeze making its way through the unit.
Transitions between activities are smooth in these open concept floorplans, where you can easily move from the living room to the kitchen. Prepare and enjoy meals from the well-appointed kitchen, where full-sized appliances, cookware, and tableware are provided. With an oceanfront location, it’s easy to enjoy dining with a view for every meal! Enjoy your meal from the adjacent dining table or bring a plate out onto the lanai to enjoy Kauai’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
The majority of our Lanikai vacation rentals are 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom units accommodating up to four guests. These spacious condos offer plenty of square footage and boast the added bonus of ensuite bathrooms in both bedrooms. For multiple couples or friends traveling together, this means there’s no need to compromise – everyone can enjoy the space and privacy they desire! Bedrooms and bathrooms are well-appointed with high-quality finishes that give an upscale feel.
Onsite Amenities at Lanikai
Head outdoors to enjoy the well-manicured grounds of Lanikai. Palm trees and tropical foliage surround the buildings, and the exteriors are well-maintained. Along the ocean side of the condos, Lanikai offers a spectacular salt water swimming pool. The pool deck offers lounge chairs perfect for long periods of relaxation. With the pool situated right along the oceanfront, you can simultaneously enjoy the best of both worlds. Make an afternoon of it by taking advantage of the poolside barbecue area. Wailua Beach and Bay, the navigable Wailua River, and the shops and restaurants of Kapa’a are all within walking distance from this desirable property.
Exploring Kauai’s Coconut Coast
Groves of palm trees silhouetted against the blue sky give Kauai’s east coast its trademark look and has thus been dubbed the Coconut Coast. This area provides easy access to white sand beaches, water activities, waterfalls, hiking, and many island activities. In addition to all that is offered in the immediate area, the convenient location of our Lanikai vacation rentals also makes it a centralized launching point for enjoying day trips to points of interest along the northern and southern coasts. Areas such as Poipu and Hanalei are easily accessible on day trips from Lanikai!
However, you won’t want to leave the Coconut Coast until you’ve explored some of the attractions the east coast has to offer. Stand in awe at the magnificent Wailua Falls, paddle up the serene Wailua River, shop the boutiques of Kapa’a Town, and enjoy some of Kauai’s best dining right along the ocean. And with your east coast location, early risers will be richly rewarded with spectacular sunrises over the water!
A favorite each coast hike to tackle at sunrise is Sleeping Giant. The trail begins with a gradual ascent through a pine forest and eventually becomes a steeper climb. You will be richly rewarded for your efforts at the top, which offers sweeping views of the island’s eastern coastline. A pavilion at the peak makes for the perfect picnicking spot before you head back down the mountain.
Since the Wailua River is the only navigable river in the State of Hawaii, this is one of the east coast’s main attractions. The river mouth empties into the ocean, and if you follow its winding path upstream, you will experience a quiet side of inland Kauai. The river is popularly explored by kayak and stand up paddle boards, although you will also find a handful of motorboats that go zipping by. If you don’t want to paddle on your own accord, consider booking a boat excursion with Smith’s, an outfitter that provides scenic and informative upriver rides.
With all of the outdoor adventuring you will be doing, you are sure to work up a hearty appetite. The island’s east coast is home to some of Kauai’s best restaurants. From upscale oceanfront dining to casual local eats, you will find a myriad of options. To eat like a local, consider stopping at one of the casual plate lunch restaurants or food trucks that are in and near Kapa’a. For takeout to be enjoyed at one of the nearby beaches, you will find many locals lining up at places such as Pono Market, known for their local style fried chicken plate and Hawaiian plates with dishes such as lau lau, poke, and kalua pork. To treat yourself to an upscale dinner out, make reservations at Hukilau Lanai, where they are known for their dishes made with fresh locally caught seafood and produce from local farmers. They offer an excellent multi-course meal with wine pairings that make for a special evening out! A top place to grab drinks on Kauai’s east coast is Lava Lava Beach Club, where you can drink a Mai Tai with your toes in the sand. Situated right on the beach, enjoy fabulous views, tropical drinks, and a fun casual vibe.
Kauai’s Coconut Coast has it all, from beautiful white sand beaches and outdoor activities to excellent options for shopping and dining. Enjoy it all from your Lanikai vacation rental!
