Princeville Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath

Come to `Ikena Kai to experience the life-enhancing mystique of Kauai’s spectacular North Shore.

This tastefully decorated, non-smoking, one-bedroom suite is perched on a cliff and offers a stunning 180-degree view of the ocean and majestic waterfall-laced mountains that will capture your imagination and take your breath away. The view from `Ikena Kai is beyond compare. It's the ideal place to relax and unwind or have the time of your life as you enjoy the many nearby activities. The suite is fully furnished with everything you need for a carefree vacation.

`Ikena Kai was completely renovated in January 2015 and is now one of the most beautiful condo rentals in Pali Ke Kua or all of Kauai. Our renovation includes new travertine-style porcelain tiles in the living area, newly painted walls, new window coverings, furniture from Room & Board, West Elm and others, Bose SoundTouch WI-FI music system, LG flat screen TV, Caesarstone Quartz Countertops, GE stainless steel appliances (fridge with purified water dispenser, dishwasher, stove, and microwave), new carpet in bedroom, new Westin Heavenly Bed, premium sheets and linens, completely new bathroom including new porcelain tiles, toilet, sink).

Start your day with a breakfast of fresh fruits grown by local farmers. Then, stroll through our lush tropical vegetation as you use our private paved path to visit a magnificent golden-sand swimming/snorkeling beach with sparkling blue and emerald water. Fall asleep to the sound of the surf or watch the whales and dolphins play. As the day ends, take a moment to admire our gorgeous sunsets from your lanai. Then, enjoy fine dining at our onsite restaurant or one of the nearby restaurants - or cook your own meal in our fully appointed kitchen. Throughout your stay, find everything you need at the Princeville Shopping Center. When you feel like exploring, take a short drive to one of the many exquisite beaches along Kauai’s North Shore or to the quaint, historic town of Hanalei.

About The Owner

I've owned this unit since 1999 and have been visiting Kauai since 1994. I live in San Francisco and run a software and consulting company that focuses on payment strategy, fraud risk, and analytics.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1999

Why The Owner chose Princeville

Ikena Kai was renovated and upgraded to the highest standards of design and quality in 2015.

Ikena Kai offers a unique sense of space and privacy since it's located on the ground floor of a 4 unit building - only 1 neighbor to the left, and no adjacent units to the right.

Pali Ke Kua is one of the most respected and sought after condo complexes in the island. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the location offers easy access to North Shore attractions.

What makes this condo unique

There are few places in the world that offer a view like Ikena Kai.

The panoramic north facing view defies description and includes endless deep blue ocean, endless deep blue sky, massive crashing waves (in season), and the famous Bali Hai mountains.

Fabulous Spring Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The views are breathtaking .... Oh and did I tell you about the views! The unit is wonderful. Everything we needed for the week was here. We sat on the lanai every evening to enjoy the sunset. We saw the whales, sea turtles and of course the Nene. The bird watching is incredible everywhere on the property. The unit is very quiet, the only noise other than the birds was the lapping of the sea. The beach is very private, we spent several afternoons there. We hiked the Napoli Coast and Waimea Canyon always getting back in time for the sunset here! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Nothing can prepare you....

  • 5 of 5

...for this sweeping and breathtaking view. It is truly spectacular. I've been around the world and never paused like I paused here to take in the magnificence when we first arrived and every possible moment since. You can sit on the lanai in some comfy chairs with a cocktail and watch a perfect sunrise and a perfect sunset. It is an ideal "home base" for a great trip to Kauai. We haven't spent a lot of time here -- as we've been enjoying the many gifts of the island -- but the time here has been fantastic and everything you'd want. As a very frequent traveler with enough affinity miles to stay at the hotel next door, we opted for this place for the kitchen and convenience (and also so it wouldn't feel like a work trip). Amenities a frequent hotel visitor appreciates: free, easy parking right near the door, very easy access, pool and hot tub, great location, nothing weird or funky, privacy. In addition to the $billion view, we have been so pleased with everything, from the well-stocked kitchen to the comfy bed. It has a modern, thoughtful, clean, sophisticated design that doesn't feel like your grandma's beach condo. The North Shore location is great close to Hanalei, Queen's Bath, Secret Beach, etc. The owner is also extremely responsive and kind. Aloha!

Amazing View and Stay

  • 5 of 5

I was compelled to write a review before even leaving! Writing this sitting looking out at the ocean and mountains. The pictures drew us into reserving a stay here but actually being here is just breathtaking. In the first day, saw a rainbow, whales, and endless waves right from this unit. We wandered down the 5 minute walk to the secluded sandy beach below, and did not see anyone else there the whole hour a half we were there.

As an architect, I appreciate the modern crisp, new and clean interior that does not compete with the amazing scenery outside.

The kitchen is fully stocked with new dishes, and appliances. The living room and bedroom have everything one would need.

Now we are off to enjoy our multi day stay here. Will definitely want to come back. Thanks Mitch.

And there's that view!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time at Pali Ke Kua (our daughter's wedding party stayed here) and this apartment was by far the best. It was just beautifully renovated with all the modern conveniences. There were even some price tags still remaining on the gorgeous modern dishes. The views from everywhere are astounding and change with the lighting every day. Not to mention whales breaching non stop right outside your patio door. If you want paradise this should be your stomping ground. Mahalo Mitch!

best location on the island

  • 5 of 5

The place itself is in perfect order with clean lines and a light open vibe. The view of the ocean, the easy walk down to the gorgeous beach, the super quick trip to great food and shops, and the 2 minute trip to the best access point to Hanalei Bay make this THE SPOT for me anytime I'm staying in Kauai (unless I'm going to be hiking the Kalalau Trail of course).

Most Beautiful Vacation Condo and Most Beautiful View from Lanai and Dining Room

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful vacation condo that I have stayed in Hawaii and I have vacationed in Hawaii for ten years. The condo was totally renovated in December 2014 with a new kitchen, new bathroom and shower, new tile floors with very high quality materials and workmanship. The condo was totally re-painted and even a brand new King Bed mattress and brand new towels. It is a spectacular location with spectacular views of the ocean and rolling breakers from the dining room and from the lanai. We could hear the waves breaking against the shore as we drifted off to sleep every night. We would have our local coffee on the lanai each morning and watch the whales surface in the distance and close to shore watch the surfers below the condo. It is within ann easy walk of its own private beach and also an easy walk to the St. Regis Hotel. The condo is very well furnished with excellent quality kitchen appliances, pots and pans, high quality china and glassware and most important excellent sharp knives. I recommend it as a romantic getaway for a couple or even to bring one or two children since it has a pull out sofa bed in the living room. I will definitely rent this condo again in the future. The owner is very accommodating and very pleasant to work with in all aspects of renting his condo. Overall, I would rate this as a Five Star Condo through VRBO.
