Princeville Condo Rental Photos and Description
A/C Bali Hai Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Our Puu Poa Penthouse 412 is quite honestly THE VERY BEST of all the 56 units within Kauai's best condo community. Those who know this best, Our Guests, constantly say this. Its LARGEST 2,180 square foot floor plan is COMPLETELY private (only the moon & stars can look down on its two penthouse level ocean decks), and includes 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 within the Puu Poa community, 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 review our Virtual Tour of our residence via the website link given below. Such time will be well spent in your selection of a vacation experience. Please do observe the amazing 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 truly 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 such as YOU.... Do please allow us that privilege.
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, that 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 !).

Guestbook comments from the owner
We have been fortunate enough to enjoy a week at Puu Poa 412 and it was a most amazing experience. This was our 20th Anniversary trip and we wanted something EXTRA SPECIAL.... The Goodes have done a great job providing their guests with every luxury and convenience. The North Shore was where we spent the majority of our time and we fell in love with the little town of Hanalei. We lunched at the Dolphin one afternoon and watched the kayakers/paddle boarders go down the river. Had cocktails at the Kalypso one day and also the Hanalei Café. Both very nice & friendly. We especially enjoyed the Limahuli Botanical Gardens since we love to garden in Salt Lake City. Enjoyed the catamaran tour of the Napali Coast and guided waterfall hike with Princeville Ranch Adventures. The beaches were spectacular --- our favorite snorkeling was actually right here at Hideaways Beach ! We tried Tunnels Beach one afternoon, but we both agreed our Hideaways had the best fish ! The binoculars provided in 412 allowed us to watch two seals eating breakfast below the kitchen windows. The appliances/sound system worked great. A vacation we will NEVER forget. It was simply "the best" !
