Princeville Condo Rental Photos and Description

A/C Bali Hai Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Clearly this is the very best of all the 56 units in Kauai's best condo - 2,180 square feet of completely private (only the moon & stars can look down on its penthouse level ocean decks) space, including 830 square feet of ceramic tiled oceanfront lanais left open to the sky to enhance the incredible views and trade wind flows. Almost all rooms, due to 412's prime location within the arcing design of the Puu Poa complex, face directly straight-ahead toward the legendary Bali Hai vista with fantastic sunsets. As we all know - in real estate, the three hallmarks are : Location, Location, & Location. Our Puu Poa Penthouse 412 is in the finest location at Puu Poa, period....

The dramatic advantages of 412's precise location within the Puu Poa complex are very clear IF you will take the time to carefully view our Virtual Tour of our residence via the website link given below. Please do carefully observe the Bali Hai & Hanalei Bay views all of our Guests enjoy and why they spend so many hours on our two large open ocean decks....

This unique CENTRALLY AIR-CONDITIONED penthouse corner end unit sits at the ocean edge on two sides, affording 270 degree views of the ocean through window walls from living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, and two lanai decks. This simulates the same feeling as standing on the captain's bridge of a modern ocean liner with extraordinary vistas in many directions.... Unique huge sloped picture window in dining room, two kitchen windows give additional views of the ocean, surfers, migrating humpback whales, fabulous rainbows. It is no small wonder then why Bruce Stark, the famous U.S. real estate developer - builder of Puu Poa, chose not to market our Penthouse # 412 and kept it as HIS PERSONAL HOME ON KAUAI for the first six years of existence before it became ours to enjoy and share with Guests as YOU....

The advanced degree engineering graduate and PH 412 homeowner chose to keep both of our ocean decks open to the sky and their spectacular Bali Hai direct frontal views, rather than impede the flow of the trade winds and obscure those fantastic views with a metal and glass/plastic structure that would serve to trap excessive solar heat loads inside, affecting the comfort of all interior rooms....

Carrier CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM quietly serves all rooms, delivered by hidden in-wall & ceiling insulated large ducting, evenly controls 412 at guest's selected temperature and comfortable humidity level. This is NOT a wall-mounted add-on 'ductless' A/C system, nor use of 'room' air conditioners. PLEASE REALIZE the CONTROL of BOTH TEMPERATURE and HUMIDITY IS IMPORTANT ! High-end ceiling fans in living room, dining room, both bedrooms are alternative means of comfort control when favorable trade winds and moderate temperature & humidity exist; allowing guests to open window walls to enjoy soothing sounds of ocean waves breaking on beautiful Hideaways Beach immediately below (visible from our 412 ocean decks !).

This prime penthouse unit has 9 foot or higher ceilings in all areas, and features 20 foot high living room cathedral ceiling with unique stained glass celestory windows - providing an extra sense of spaciousness, additional light, and more precise climate regulation.

Deluxe plumbing fixtures, including double width side-by-side whirlpool bath with precise thermostatic & blower electronic controls, 40 square foot showering area with 7 sprayheads, extensive mirrors (Bali Hai is visible from the showering area, whirlpool bath, & toilet !), two head main bathroom shower stall, quiet extra large capacity Affinity front-loading quality electronic washer & dryer, deluxe one-piece toilets, 80 gallon & tankless water heaters, ultra large corian kitchen sink & bath vanity, two lightweight cotton waffle robes in each bath, beach towels in linen closet for your use at ocean & pool.

Custom designed high end furniture to fit the geometry of each 412 room, beautiful fabrics, and original artwork including huge Sapphire Blue nine section living room sofa, 12' tall Bali Hai living room tapestry, four panel dining room koi mural, unique Hawaiian Koa wood cabinets in kitchen & dining room that were custom built on site, master bedroom king sized platform bed with backlit shoji screen wall featuring koi-etched glass panels. Heavy glass dining and cocktail height tables & chairs, two chaise lounges, two deluxe rope-slung relaxation chairs, 11 foot diameter hotel-quality market umbrella, large commercial stainless steel 220 voltage electronic barbeque on the ocean decks.

Latest technology 64 inch high definition 3-D Samsung Plasma television in living room with TiVo-like time-shifting HD digital video recorder, Blu Ray 3-D DVD player, six speaker Mirage surround sound array; 32 inch Sharp high definition LCD flat screen TV in master bedroom with Yamaha 41 speaker surround sound bar and DVD player, 26 inch Samsung high definition LCD flat screen TV in second bedroom; all 3 TV's with 250+ channels, 100+ high definition channels. Separate Yamaha-TEAC-Niles-LogiTech home stereo system with universal iPod docking station selectively delivers music via in-wall speakers to lanai ocean deck, living room, dining room, kitchen, both bedrooms with discrete volume controls for each area. Library of 100+ DVD's organized in living room's revolving rack includes many films shot locally on Kauai. Library of 50 music CD's. Variety of 75 hardcover books for those who wish diversion at beach or pool. Several board games & playing cards. Quality telescope on tripod and two sets of binoculars.

Glass contemporary dining room set with six comfortable leather chairs dramatically overlooks through massive picture window the ocean reef & coastline. Bali Hai and sunsets are also visible from the dining table. Two-line cordless telephones in dining room and master bedroom, and second bedroom has useful big button speakerphone - all three provide our guests with unlimited free long distance service within the U.S. and Canada. Answering machines at each phone gather incoming messages for you.

Deluxe large bright kitchen with two windows (because of 412's superior ocean end corner location) also overlooks the Pacific in two directions, is fully equipped with all manner of large & small appliances. Detailed list appears below in the kitchen 'Features' section.

Widespread use of seductive recessed lighting --- in living room cathedral ceiling coves, over huge sectional sofa, over koi mural in dining room, over Bali Hai painting in living room, over kitchen counters & electronic cooktop, and over master bedroom headboard jungle painting & koi-etched frosted illuminated glass panels. Remote controlled Japanese lantern and rope lighting on both ocean decks add romantic touches. Dramatic dimmer-controlled blue starlights surround the master bedroom king-sized platform bed.

Second bedroom substantial glass desk with H-P newer desktop computer, ultra high speed internet access, 22 inch H-P widescreen flat panel display, H-P LaserJet printer, Brothers fax machine with third phone number for guests to stay in contact with family & friends. Spare toner cartridges are provided for both the printer & fax machine. Daily newspapers are delivered to 412's two carved glass front doors for your reading pleasure.

What a wonderful stay

I am pretty sure I have never had anything go smoother than this rental and stay in Kauai. From start to finish Dick was helpful and so full of information and anticipating what we needed before we even knew we needed it. The condo is all the pictures and descriptions advertise… it is an oasis of luxury. And I have decided I NEED that ice machine in my life. We went during rainy season so our time spent on the lanai was limited to some morning coffee and evening wine but that was nice… the view from the sofa and the master bed was amazing. Even washing up dishes in the kitchen sink was great due to the view. Everything is pretty much anticipated... you just have to think, where would X be kept and ta da... there is X. :-)

Location is great, you can pop into Hanalei or head down to Kapaa very easily. And our last night we had a very amazing dinner at the St. Regis which is just a short walk away. There is very nice snorkeling down on the beach below, but be warned it is a goat path (with some ropes to hold on to) at best to get down to it.

Our stay here was perfect from initial email to Dick to prompt security deposit return and every second of our stay at this lovely condo in between. I do highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Dear Kristan & Matthew from Fort Wayne -
Your kind comments are so heart-warming and simply reinforced our extreme pleasure derived from sharing our Kauai residence with the two of you. We were so sorry that your stay with us was so brief indeed because of prior reservations on our books. We hope one day we might succeed in hosting your return visit to the Garden Isle when scheduling permits you to more thoroughly soak in the beauty of Kauai's unique North Shore. Dick & Eleanor

We stayed at this unit in July 2013. Everything that is said and written about the unit and owner are absolutely true! The views are amazing, the amenities in the unit, everything is as advertised. An example of how above and beyond the owners will go is that they have a 3D television set and they have 4 headsets - in the same basket they had replacement batteries for the headsets!! Truly they have thought of everything in the unit to ensure comfort and convenience. The views are beyond amazing and the convenience to all on the north shore is great. Dick - we wanted to thank you again for being such a great host and allowing us to stay in your "little piece of paradise!" We looked at a few other units in the buildings of Pu u Poa and none compare to 412… We will be sure to return!!!

Best Condo in Puu Poa, great for couple or two

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 25, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights, and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay to round out our two week trip through Maui and Kauai. Puu Poa is located in Princeville on the north shore conveniently near Hanalei (within driving distance).

This condo will blow you away when you walk in the door. It's bigger than it appears, has incredible space, and is incredibly comfortable. Dick has clearly spared no expense to make certain that everything is in place to assure a perfectly smooth stay for the guests.

The condo was perfectly clean upon arrival, and exceeded our expectations. The best part about this condo is that it's on the top level, and on the corner, so you get 180 degree views towards Hanalei to the west and towards the east. The other condos don't have that view. The condo is fully stocked, with instructions for use on everything in the condo. They even have a 3D TV, though you'll be outside exploring for most of the time. It's possible to sleep with the balcony doors open at night so you can hear the ocean. Some condos had enclosed the balcony, which we weren't interested in.

It's clear that Richard, the owner, is making investments to continue to upgrade his condo. If you were to ask me for a critique, the only thing that could perhaps be upgraded in the future is the upgrade of the master bathroom. Though don't get me wrong, it's a super nice bathroom with an open shower and jacuzzi tub, just has a few years on it, that's all.

Either way, this place is worth it, reserve early because it sells out. Enjoy the amazing sunsets on either deck, you'll be spending a bit of time out there. Oh, and don't forget to check the snorkeling out on the beach below Puu Poa, called Hideaways...perfect little beach, often all to yourself.

As first time visitors to Hawaii, my husband and I found this beautiful condo and surrounding land and views to be nearly impossible to improve upon. The owner, Dick, provided a significant amount of information for us to review prior to our arrival. We were able to sort through the places to visit and things to do on Kauai at our leisure so that we could begin enjoying our vacation right away.
The kitchen was well appointed which allowed up to prepare most of our meals in the comfort of a home. We traveled with great friends and found there to be enough room for 2-3 of us at a time to share responsibilities.
Dick was also very open to providing information to us as we requested it, always in a timely manner.
We were extremely pleased with the accommodations.

Our Greatest Vacation Yet

My wife and I just returned from our week in Kauai. Such a beautiful island from end to end. Without a doubt, I can say that the highlight of our Honeymoon was our time spent relaxing in the comforts of our Penthouse viewing the Bali Hai. From the moment we saw the beautiful double carved glass entry doors, we knew we had just arrived in paradise. As others have said in their reviews, everything you have seen so far in the pictures are completely accurate. We knew we were in the right spot when people were coming to admire the view we had every day from our lanai, from down the street.

The penthouse was in excellent condition and everything that is conveyed in the rental posting is completely accurate. It is amazing the length of detail that has been put into every aspect of their home. As music lovers, we especially enjoyed being able to listen to our music in multiple rooms and even outside while stargazing at night.

There is no way to fully convey the exceptional care and hospitality we received from Dick and Eleanor. From start to finish, our questions were answered so promptly and with such warmness. It is clear that they want not only their guests, but anyone who communicates with them, to have the greatest time possible on Kauai.

Mahalo from the bottom of our hearts. We can't wait to come back!
