Princeville House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious 5 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath oceanbluff vacation home, (10 guest max incl. kids)

Hale Makana is a spacious, ocean bluff home perched right above the Pacific at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the Princeville Resort on Kauai's famed North Shore. Close to award-winning golf courses, shops, restaurants beaches, and adventures, the home provides luxurious accommodations for families and groups. Empty lots on either side, a large front lawn, and immaculate landscaping add to the spaciousness and privacy of this fabulous property.

Beautiful Hawaiian artwork adorns the walls, while the natural beauty provides spectacular views from almost every room. The master bedroom looks out over the pool and jacuzzi to an unobstructed, 180-degree, ocean view with access to two lanais or decks. This is one of the premier, whale-watching locations on Kauai and seeing their spouts is an almost daily occurrence during winter months. Dolphins and turtles are also regular visitors to this coastline and even the rare, Hawaiian, monk seal has been spotted playing in the water below. Albatross nest annually and soar overhead in winter time. Shearwater's nest in the cliff and Brazilian cardinals look out for crumbs daily!

Photos cannot possibly do this property justice - it has to be seen to be believed! Repeat customers are our mainstay... why not become one of them!

About Mary Paterson

My family visited Kauai many years ago and fell in love. Coming from Washington and Canada it was a beautiful place to thaw out, vacation and explore the culture and adventures Kauai has to offer. My in-laws spend the winter months here so they get to enjoy it even more than I!

Mary Paterson purchased this house in 2000

Why Mary Paterson chose Princeville

When we found this house on the bluff overlooking the ocean, we knew it would not only be a magical place for our family to stay, but it had already been a successful vacation rental. We have improved just about every aspect of the house and garden every year and know first hand what a joy it is to stay here. Many of our clients come back year after year, and we get to escape the cold and enjoy every winter together as a family. Our property manager offers the finest service of anyone we know, and she treats our guests to the same service - lei greeting and fresh fruit basket while our housekeeper provides the tropical flower arrangements throughout the house.

What makes this house unique

The unbelievable sunsets into the ocean and behind 'Bali Hai' - or Mount Makana; watching the whales spout and breach many times during the winter months; hearing the eerie moaning of the shearwater's nesting in the cliffs; daily visits from our family of cardinals; soaring Laysan Albatross right across our lawn and often a breeding pair close by.... so many incredible adventures in nature. Our home is the perfect jumping off point for exploring Kauai. With the Princeville Center only moments away for groceries, restaurants and shops, and walk, jog or bike path around the Princeville Resort; great golf and tennis close by... it has everything we need.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hale Makana is located in a truly wonderful location, as good as any we have enjoyed in our travels. Bali Hi (forgive me for forgetting its proper name) is spectacular. Having only to turn our head in its direction to enjoy it was a special treat. I took hundreds of pictures of sunsets, morning light, afternoon waves, Queen's Bath--each a postcard and all from the property. Amazing.

The farmers market in Hanalei was definitely worth seeing. We were able to pick up lots of fresh ingredients for meals and to see foods and products that you can't find anywhere else.

Among our most memorable aspects of the trip were the surf lessons that each of us took through the instructors connected to the Quicksilver Surf shop. My wife, myself and my sons (ages seven and nine) made our first stand on the famed Hanalei Beach. The kids were very proud and did extremely well.

The property is extremely well maintained, impeccably clean and highly functional for a larger group. Having the pool to come home to and for the kids to enjoy, regardless of what the weather was doing, was hugely important.

Everything we could have wanted for the time in Kauai was found at the house, from every kitchen tool we might need to beach toys and chairs. We were struck by how well organized everything in the house was--every detail had been considered. Thanks Mary. I can tell that you put yourself into achieving the best possible care for this property and it's guests. We are grateful.

There's more that we would have liked to do, but a week can only fit so much into it. It broke our hearts to leave. We said goodbye at sunset down at the pier. Lots of locals were picknicking and taking in the spectacle of the see swallowing the sun. It was easily the most beautiful of the sunsets we saw and it honestly hurt to watch. We had to drive away.

Instant Crush

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into Hale Makana, instant crush - we knew we had discovered a special place. The house sits on a stunning vista and its grounds are like a botanic garden. The pool and hot tub got huge thumbs up from our kids (who consider themselves experts on the subject!) and the house was spacious and comfortable. And as wonderful as the proptery is, Mary and her team are even better - charming, informative and wonderful in all respects. If only every vacation included such caring and welcoming stewards! Each night as we watched the sunset from the back yard we remarked on how fortunate we were to spend time at such a special place. We've travelled to Kauai numerous times and this property (and its caretakers) are far and away our favorite. Hale Makana was better than advertised and we can't wait to return. Thanks so much, Mary!

Hale Makana was everything I hoped it would be and more. My family was able to relax, talk, laugh, re-bond, and simply enjoy the home, beautiful surroundings, and the warmth of all of us in one place at the same time. It was simply magical. We will have so many wonderful memories that will last us for the rest of our lives. We all needed this vacation so badly and left wishing we didn't have to. Hopefully we will be able to visit you again some time in the years to come.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Gail - we really enjoyed having your family here and delighted that your memories will last a lifetime! Come back and visit us again and please send my aloha to the family! Mahalo nui loa, Mary

Hale Makana was GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hale Makana for two continuous weeks and the only issue we had to deal with was that we had to leave! The house is quite large, comfortable, nice and is in an excellent location for ocean and sunset views (our favorite). The pool was a nice attraction if you don't care so much for the beaches everyday.

Our family and guests included a total of nine adults and there was plenty of room for us. As with anything though, you can always make it better. The primary negative issue was that the owners occupy the entire garage with their personal cars, leaving little room for a large group to park. We managed it okay, but were inconvenienced with having to move cars around and :(

All in all, we loved the house and plan to stay at Hale Makana again!

The Hale Makana

  • 5 of 5

The moment you arrive at this wonderful home greeted by Mary you know you are in a very special place. I will remember the sound of the ocean waves breaking on the rocks of Queens Bath below the home and sitting in the back yard and looking up at the Milky Way on a clear night. There are few views on this planet that compare with the sun setting into the Pacific over Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. Mary does a wonderful job of helping you find your “equilibrium” and is always just a phone call away once your stay begins. We made the trip around the island to Waimea Canyon and Kalalau Lookout with a breathtaking view of the Na Pali Coast. Closer to the home is the wonderful Hanalei and one of the great driving roads in the world: down Kuhio Hwy to Ke’e Beach and Kalalau Trial. We honeymooned in Kauai in 1987 and returned to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary with our best man, his wife and our matron of honor and her husband. It was the perfect place and we agreed we can’t possible wait another 25 years to return. I highly recommend Mary and this wonderful home -- they are a great combination.

Owner's Response: Mahalo John for taking the time to submit the review - I'm tremendously grateful and so glad you had such a great time! I do hope you WILL be back before long! I may not be around in another 25 years!!! Best wishes for a fabulous summer.

Hale Makana is a large and comfortable home in a gorgeous setting overlooking the ocean. You immediately feel at home when you realize that the house is equipped just as you would want it if you lived there full-time: spices and other condiments in the kitchen; water toys and snorkeling gear; plenty of towels; wash clothes at the door to wipe off sandy feet; books, DVDs and CDs; etc. The kids loved the pool and the adults spent time in the hot tub almost every evening. You can easily walk to Queen’s Bath, and the home is convenient to all the activities on the north shore. There are wonderful ocean and sunset views, and every day we were amazed as the local youth jumped and dove into the surging water in the small cove below the house. Mary, the agent for the owners, could not be more responsive and helpful. Hale Makana is the perfect place on the north shore to relax and enjoy the beauty of Kauai.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Words cannot describe how wonderful our week

was - this was largely due to your family opening

your home to us. The house - from furnishings to

view, and cleanliness - was perfect for our group.

Countless hours were spent by all of us outside

laying by the pool, enjoying the view of the ocean &

rocks below and simply taking in the breathtaking

beautify of our surroundings.

Thank you for such an amazing week.
