This extraordinary 3800 sq ft home is just 50 meters from the most coveted bluff in Princeville and there is a private snorkel beach just below the house. The home is 3 stories with fountains, inside and out, tapestries, and over 30 tropical and ornamental and fruit trees. All appliances, kitchen ware, dishes, towels, linens and furniture are top of the line.
The house has 4 complete suites...one with beautiful garden views, one with views of the water falls on NaPali (the cliffs). and one with 2 queen bedrooms and standing ocean views that can be separated into two private queen rooms or left as one large 2 bedroom suite. The great room on the main floor has an 8' granite dining bar and a mahogany table that seats 8. There is also outside covered dining tables on 2 large decks. The media room has 2 wine coolers built into the wet bar, 55'plasma, iPod hook up, surround sound Bose speakers and wifi through out the house. Both the upper and lower floors have 16' sliders that open to beautiful views and to the 10,000 square feet of lawn, flowers and fruit trees. Six months of the year we have Albatross nests in our back gardens.
The 280 sq ft covered lanai has fabulous sunset and waterfall views, and seats 8+ for lighted outdoor dining and cocktails. The cozy flower covered pergola on the main deck is a perfect place to sit for a shaded breakfast in the garden. The trade winds create a lovely breeze throughout the house year round, however there are fans in every room. The three main baths are large, with custom tile work and the master has a luscious new 6' jacuzzi. There is also a half bath in the hall.
A beautiful (world reknown) 2-3 mi white crescent shaped beach is just 8 min. away in the quaint village of Hanalei, where you'll also find great restaurants and a fish market where the fish is still moving (sushi)! So grab the beach chairs, toys, towels, boogy boards, umbrellas, and coolers from the laundry room and head on down to Hanalei to boogie board in the turquoise water! You and your friends and family will love it here.
From Dec. to late July, we also have Albatross who nest in our garden. It is a remarkable sight and we are very honored with their presence.
We are 5 minutes from 2 beautiful Troon golf courses and a 10 min drive to the famous Prince Course. We're also a 10 min drive from horse back riding, zip lines, kayaking, hiking, all board sports and great bars and restaurants.

We fell in love with Princeville 20 years ago and we bought our first home in 2003. It was a tiny 2 bedroom with a little screened in lanai and we just wanted to get a feel for second home life in Kauai. Our kids went nuts when there and since there wasn't room for the whole family so we stared the search for a bigger house. We found our perfect home in '06. We gutted it and began a year long plus, total remodel on our current home on Kaweonui. We just started renting 3 years ago and we have been so happy to share our beautiful home with all our wonderful, respectful guests. Lyn & Bill
Lyn & Bill Binch purchased this house in 2007
The walk to the lovely, private snorkel beach below the house takes less than 10 minutes and tYou can actually swim with turtles. The drive to Hanalei Beach, voted the #1 beach in the US, is 10 min. away. The 2+ mi. crescent shaped, uncrowded, white sand beach with clear turquoise water (all sand bottom) is idyllic. With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths we can bring our whole family with us for a fabulous vacation and so can you. We'd love to have you, Lyn & Bill

This was a terrific home for our 16 day stay on the North Shore and I was proud to have one of my sons and the special lady in his life join us mid-way through our vacation. Everything about this home was comfortable including the beds, roomy shower and well-appointed kitchen. Kauai is our favorite destination and Princeville offers the best of the best of the entire island. I highly recommend this home and the owners were great to deal with as well.
We were so delighted with everything about this home! Not only is it exquisitely appointed, with lovely furniture, FULLY-equipped kitchen (for once I didn't have to buy a new pan or a grater or something), huge walk-in showers, gorgeous individual vanities in the bathrooms, etc., etc., but it also has a huge backyard w/fruit trees and beautiful flowers and a vine-covered gazebo. The place was IMMACULATE, too; their cleaning crew are top-notch -- not a speck of dirt anywhere, and the floors gleamed. What I especially appreciated as well was the ample supplies of t.p., dish soap, laundry soap, all the stuff you usually have to buy after being in a place for just a couple of days. The showers even had huge bottles of body wash! That might not sound that important, but it was indicative of how thoughtful the owners are, and how homey yet elegant they've made their home. The pictures really don't do it justice: it's huge. We never wanted to leave! P.S. The rec room downstairs with the huge flat screen and state-of-the-art entertainment center was really a plus!
My wife and I stayed at this property for 8 nights and can't say enough wonderful things about it. Yard is immaculate, house is very clean. Master bedroom has a private deck with waterfall views. Bed is incredibly comfortable and master bathroom is equipped with large shower and huge soaker tub. Was extremely nice having all the comforts of home while on vacation. Great location on the Northshore of Kauai. Already planning our visit to Kauai next year and am hoping to be lucky enough to have this extraordinary home available for us to stay in once again.
My fiancee and I chose this home for our first vacation to Kauai and we are so happy we did. We had such a wonderful and romantic vacation. The property is beautiful and spacious, with a great garden, kitchen, outdoor seating and any amenity you could ask for. We enjoyed the location in the north shore, the proximity to a private beach (10 minute fun hike), short drive to the town of hanalei, beautiful sunsets, friendly neighbors and a very cute resident baby albatross in the front yard.
Thank you Lyn and Bill for being great hosts. We absolutely loved it!
We had an excellent 5 week stay in this home with our family. The layout of the home was perfect for us;large family/entertainment room on the ground floor was ideal for our teenagers to hang out. The back lanai became a favorite place for us to gather to eat meals and hang out. The views from the master suite of the waterfalls were outstanding. Fabulous location for North Shore beaches (which are awesome!), hiking, and shopping in Princeville and Hanalei. We would definitely consider this home for our next stay in Kauai.
This was, perhaps, the most amazing vacation rental I have ever had. From the fountains throughout the house, to the lovely fruit trees all over the property, and amazing waterfall views, I can't recommend this place too highly. Perfect for small groups looking to explore the island, or as a romantic getaway, you won't go wrong with this beautifully remodeled home.
