Hale Awapuhi Sunrise 2J | Kapaa Vacation Rental
Hale Awapuhi 2J
Hale Awapuhi Sunrise is surely among the largest & most luxurious ocean front apartments in Hawaii. Exclusively gated, this boutique 9-unit project is on a quiet beach cove with natural ocean ponds. Hale Awapuhi Sunrise has a private entrance steps away from the covered parking and shaded by giant Monkey pod trees. Boasting over 2200 square feet plus lanai space and a 23 foot high ceiling, this luxurious apartment feels much more like a private home than a condo unit. Occasionally the rare Hawaiian monk seal will inhabits the beach below & Turtles can often be seen from the lanai. Enjoy watching the cruise ships and seasonal whales pass by. It is impossible to build any closer to the ocean these days.
The unit was completely redesigned and renovated in 2003. A local architect redesigned to afford ocean views from the custom kitchen, with all new cabinetry and appliances. Aside from the dramatic ocean view, the spiral staircase adds a dramatic artistic element to the main living area. The unit is finished with beech wood and marble floors, jetted tubs, granite kitchen counters and custom lighting fixtures. Attention to every detail to make this an amazing setting. This is one of the finest suites that we have the opportunity to manage.

Awapuhi 2J, this is a gorgeous condo …the view is amazing, if you want to feel you are at the beach even when you are not, then this is the spot for you. The photos don’t do the view justice. We left the patio doors open 24/7. The vaulted ceiling makes the place feel so very spacious. It was clean (spotless) and well stocked. Grab a coffee and scone just across the street and don’t miss out on Kintaro just a 2-minute walk for fabulous service and sushi. There is a Safeway just minutes down the road. Loved the location I personally believe Kauai is a ‘get out there and explore island’, so from here it’s super easy to travel north or south. .
I loved Kauai Exclusive Management they were so helpful from day one, from when I made the booking and then I had to move my days! Right up to the very end just right there if you needed anything. Patrick, Sherri, thank you,and a special thanks to Josh for all you did. Big big thanks you ;-)
My only warning would be check the weather the time of year you are renting. While the condo has plenty of fans it doest have A/C which to be honest probably isn’t needed 11 months out of the year but I happen to catch a very humid 2 weeks and it took some adjusting to. If you love the heat it wont be a problem. It’s a 100% I will be back …..Mahalo,
First, the condo and location. I am born and raised on the Island of Kauai and have worked in the real estate field for over 24 years. I have truly fallen in love with this spot and in particular this unit. The ocean is so soothing, it takes all your worries away and relaxes your body and mind. I could stay here forever....I slept sooo well.
Second, having worked in the real estate field for over 24 years, I have seen and dealt with a lot of owners and management companies. I can't say enough good things about Kauai Exclusive Management. Experiencing a stay in some of their units, I was highly impressed to how clean all their vacation rentals are, the level of comfort with the way it was furnished was appreciated and when I had any feedback for them for room for improvement, they immediately were proactive. I highly recommend any of their units they represent. I know that you will be well taken care as well as be in a spot that is truly cared for. Thank you so much for my stay!
This condo, the lovely interior and the excellent location made our entire vacation. What a wonderful introduction to Hawaii.
We visited many of the beaches all around the island and actually enjoyed "ours" the best. Secluded beach, shared with swimming turtles, though public, had minimal people and is just steps from the condo with an unmatched view. I still miss waking every morning to coffee at sunrise on the lanai.
Close to the best restaurants on the island (in our opinion) and to shopping without feeling crowded or urban. We would definitely stay here again...and again.
Folks considering staying here should know there is not air conditioning, though multiple fans are provided. The ocean air is muggy and the condo is quite warm at night. The fans move the air, but do not provide much cooling, so if you're uncomfortable with hot, humid weather, you might not be happy with the lack of air conditioning. But once you open the sliding glass door to the giant lanai and hear the ocean waves hitting the shore, you'll forget about everything else.
Renting this place was very easy and the property management was great and on top of things. The grounds were very well maintained and would recommend this condo to everyone who is looking for a beautiful place to stay without a lot of commotion of a big resort.
Response from Kauai Exclusive Management LLCWe do not advertise anywhere that there is air conditioning. This suite has many open windows with a perfect trade wind blowing through. There are odd days with no breeze. We provide fans for all of our guests
I can't say enough about the lanai. Sitting out there watching the turtles play in the afternoons, after our morning of exploring, was the most wonderful thing! And coffee during sunrise too!
We totally loved the location- so convenient to every place on the island, and walking across the street to the bakery and several restaurants, plus the Shell station for quick supplies was great.
Absolutely cannot wait to return!
The pool was cleaned every day, and the grounds were kept up very nicely. Saw people out working a few times while we were there, so we could tell that they definitely were concerned with keeping the place in good shape.
We felt that this was the perfect location to stay on Kauai, as it was somewhat in the middle. Not too far to either end of the island. The Passion Bakery across the street was great for breakfast or just rolls. We went there several mornings after we discovered how good their products were!
The unit itself was beautiful! Lots of space and all of the kitchen supplies that we needed. The whole unit was very clean when we got there. No problems with thwat at all. We did have an issue with the fridge 'beeping' , similar to a warning signal. The maintanance man thought it was due to the light bulbs being burnt out, but after we lost power for a short period one evening, and the fridge came back on, the beeping had stopped and all of the fridge lights worked! Odd. So I guess the fix is to shut the fridge off and then back on, and it will reset itself.
We had a few questions on how to use stuff in the unit, and the Kauai Exclusive staff was always available and handled our questions. Would very definitely come back and stay again! And would also recommend this as the perfect place for others to stay!
It is in a great location and only steps from the beach, along with being close to a walking trail that takes you to Lydgate Park and beyond. The unit is decorated with fine art and sculptures and has fantastic views of the Wailau Bay and beyond. There are a number of nice restaurants within walking distance and a great bakery just across the street. Because of the nice decorations and spiral staircase we would hesitate before taking small children.
We had some minor problems when we first arrived but Josh made sure that they were taking care of immediately. Overall we had a fantastic time and would enjoy renting it again on a return to Kauai.
All the people that I dealt with at Kauai Exclusive were professional and in the end there were no surprises.
Aj, Dana and two monkeys from Vancouver Island, Canada.
* Send a reminder email with directions. We had to call to get the exact street address.
* Hand held sprayer hose for sink got caught on cabinet plumbing regularly.
* Towels were a more worn than expected, with lots of threads hanging out.
* A/C would be nice!! ;)
* Advertise ahead of time that the grill is not to be used by guests. :( We had to cook steak in the oven broiler pan.
The only reason I am giving the general condition a 4 is because the full week of our stay there were workers trimming trees and making a lot of noise grinding the wood and other workers were doing some maintenance on the building. This prevented us from relaxing and having a nap after returning from the beach. Another small annoyance was that they only provided one dish drying cloth, no oven gloves and no foil or plastic wrap was provided.
The condo itself was very nicely decorated and the placement of the upstairs bedroom gave plenty of private space for both couples in out party.
Another nice feature of this condo is the location on Kauai...convenient to the airport and midway between side trips to either side of the island.
I was surprised and please to see all the chickens the island hosts. The crowing is a backdrop to the island sounds and while frequent was never intrusive.
Thank you for providing this property and the opportunity to experience Kauia. We have already referred you 3 families and anyone who asks about our trip.
The pictures online don't do it justice. It's located close to Kapaa, but far enough away not to be 'touristy'. It felt like it was our home for the month of our stay. It was very private and quiet with it's own private access to a small local beach.
Turtles played in the waves almost every day we were there between 11am and 4pm. I'd never seen sea turtles in the wild before, so this experience was very exciting for me.
Thank you for everything!
