“Great location & grounds, dirty carpet.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

Stayed several weeks in Unit 416 Feb 2012, corner ground floor unit, garden view only, carpet stained, but vacuumed. Kitchen cabinets chipped especially door to garbage under sink. Kitchen wallpaper peeling above window. Toilet in master leaks and self-fills very often. Twin beds in second bedroom are very saggy and creak loudly with even the gentlest of movement. Daily maid service excellent at changing linens (obviously no water conservation here), never swept patio once. Excellent location. Large lawns, nice landscaping. Pool is heated to same temp as ocean. 20 min walk to grocery and restaurants. Tennis raquets available at front desk. Management said they contact owners regularly to tell them to update and maintain the suite. Obviously not enforced.

Room Tip: rent directly from owners rather than outrigger may help get a maintained suite.

We stayed here from January 17 til the 24th. The location is perfect, as you are equidistant to both the north and south sides of the island. We stayed in unit #224 which had a nice view of the pool and ocean. The unit was clean and spacious, although it could use a little updating, but we were only in the condo at night, so it didnt bother us in the least.

We arrived at night so it was a little tricky to find because it's on a side road and nestled in between a couple other places, but we had called ahead to let the front desk know we would be a late arrival, and they emailed us instructions and directions to the condos. Very nice personnel all around!

For the value and location, this place can't be beat! We will definitely be back!

Spent a week in unit 524. this complex is run by Outrigger but we found this unit through VRBO. Fantastic location. The beach is right in front of the unit. Watch whales breaching from the lanai and an endangered monk seal basking on the beach. A very quiet complex with great grounds, a nice pool and a very good wading area on the beach for young children. A gated complex and security patrol. Its a short distance to a fantastic walking/biking path along the coast. We really enjoyed our daily bike ride where we saw lots of whales.One of the positive about this complex is that the bike oath doesn't pass in front so you have more privacy. There is just you and the ocean.

We stayed at Lae Nani from January 12 - 25th, 2012. We had a one bedroom condo #434. This condo was spacious and clean, had all the amenaties that we needed. The condo itself is outdated (draperies, ceiling fans and bathroom mirrors) need replacing, . This didn't bother us as we had a beautiful ocean view.

This complex is a great location for traveling the island, and has a bueatiful beach if you just want to laze around. The coconut marketplace is a three minute walk with places to eat and shop. Grocery stores are just up the road, short car ride.

It is very quiet, which was what we were looking for. We plan on returning next year.

We stayed at the Outrigger Lae Nani in November 2011. The Lae Nani is in the town of Kapaa, about midway between the north shore sights and the southwest attractions of Waimea Canyon and Kokee State Park. We were in building 3, Unit # 333, and it was in excellent condition and beautifully furnished, roomy, comfortable, and clean. There was free wi-fi and the owner had left a book of "tips" with recommended sightseeing, shops, and restaurants. The complex was quiet, almost too much so, and we saw few other residents. The grounds are nicely landscaped, with lots of flowers and palms. The beach in front of the resort is too rocky for swimming, though there is a small protected area that would be good for children. But if you want an active beach scene, this is not the place for you. The pool was good sized with lots of chairs, and like everything else, it was well kept. There are many shops and restaurants nearby, within walking distance or a short drive away. One complaint is that the standard chairs, found on most of the decks, are low and when you sit down the deck railing really obstructs the view - and it's a gorgeous view. We brought the bar height chairs out from the kitchen, and that made a world of difference. For restaurants, we enjoyed Bobby V's, a casual italian spot a half mile north on the main road. Just a bit farther was the upscale Lemongrass Grill and Seafood, where we had a wonderful dinner of sea bass and filet mignon. On our last day on Kauai our plane did not leave till 9:30 PM, so we asked about a late check-out. We were able to stay till 6:00 PM, but at a cost of $75.00 - a bit steep, but we were glad we did it. One final tip - the sign for the Lae Nani is tiny and we drove past it several times before seeing it; there is a sliding gate with an intercom that will connect you to the desk.

Room Tip: Building 3 has great views of the ocean.

A great thing about places to stay is that when you pick a winner, you are a haapy camper. So it is with us...we are 60 somethings. We looked at lots of places to stay on the travel websites and Lae Nani was the best for us based on airfare and hotel rate. We came from Florida. It was a VERY LONG TRIP...7 in the morning till 11 at night witha layover in LA. The resort office closed at 6 and we got in at 6:30. We rented a car and with our GPS were at Lae Nani within 15 minutes. Our Condo turned out to be great, the staff was great, the grounds were great, and Kauai was "AWESOME". We flew in a helicopter, we sailed on a Catamaran, we flew for a day to Oahu(Arizona--something to see...Oahu traffic...YUCK!!). We did a Luau, and will do Waimea Canyon today. Kauai is small...one main road...but just beautiful. The laid back nature of the place is perfect for the nature lover. Whales, dolphins, gardens, scenery, mellow life style...something to treasure...high energy types...go to Oahu.

Room Tip: Good Views every where

We stayed here over New Year's 2012 and we were so pleased! We booked through hotwire and got a fantastic deal. Our unit was quite dated, but very clean and had every we needed and more. The location is fantastic, the beach and grounds are lovely and we had a wonderful time
