About Tracy Shine

We have been bringing our children to Kauai since they were three months old. Thus we have equipped the Aloha House for adults and little ones.

Tracy Shine purchased this house in 2001

Why Tracy Shine chose Princeville

I have been traveling to Hawaii since 1983 and visited Kauai in 1996 and fell in love with the island. The North Shore of Kauai has everything- waterfalls, beautiful beaches majestic mountains, amazing views, great snorkeling, kayaking, beautiful lush tropical plants. Princeville Resort community keeps everything pristine and were always excited to return to our home. We plan to move to Kauai someday and treat our property as a home always making upgrades for our guests and ourselves to be someday our home that we never leave. The Aloha House is unique because every bedroom has it's own private full bathroom. There are 3 lanais, private 8 person hot tub and numerous amenities for guests to use.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another beautiful day in paradise. More beautiful than the house are the owner's hearts for lovingly decorating, furnishing and supplying every room with everyhing you could possibly need. Thank you for making us feel at home on your island of paradise.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5
We had a family reunion/vacation in Kauai. This house was perfect. Great having bedrooms with bath attached. The views are amazing! The house is clean and well equipped. Also great for kids. The owner has EVERYTHING you need for a baby or toddler. Location is great unless you want to spend a lot of time on the south shore. Highly recommended.

Great vacation home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
My family rented the Aloha house to celebrate my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. The house met and exceeded, in some areas, our expectations. The house was very well situated in Princeville. The neighborhood was quiet, dark, and pretty secluded from the main touristy areas. There's a beach within walking distance that was nice, but it is kind of small. It's good for a quick dip to cool off. The neighborhood is gorgeous and full of lush tropical trees and plants, and there are friendly neighborhood pets that stop by to greet you every so often. The property has great views of the mountains and the upstairs bedroom has a small sliver of an ocean view. The extra amenities (snorkel gear, coolers, etc.) were an added bonus. The home's decor was nice and the beds were extra comfortable. There were very few downsides to the Aloha house, but there were some issues with the dishwasher not doing a thorough job cleaning the dishes and some of the window screens were ripped (which allowed the neighbor cat to sneak in from time to time). The house also does not have air conditioning, so if you NEED air conditioning, this probably isn't the house for you because it gets quite steamy during the day and late afternoon. This was a shock to us at first, but we eventually got used to the heat and humidity, and adjusted quite nicely. Overall, we really enjoyed the house and we would probably stay here again. I highly recommend considering the Aloha house as a lodging option when visiting Kauai.

This was my third time staying at the Aloha House and it keeps getting better and better!

  • 5 of 5
I returned to Aloha House with my family for the third time. This home has it all, and more. It is a luxurious, peaceful, beautifully decorated home which has all new furniture! It is so relaxing and has all the amenities that makes it seem more like a spa home.

As we walked up to the house on the day of our arrival, I immediately felt relaxed and peaceful as I knew what we were in for: true luxury and beauty. I smelled the flowers from the beautiful garden around the home and knew that soon I would be enjoying a luxurious soak in the hot tub. All of our wishes came true.

I celebrated my birthday there. We used the beautiful wine glasses and sat outside in the hot tub and relaxed. Another night we spent sitting up on the top deck watching the sunset. Everything is in the best condition and so welcoming, which is why we keep returning to this home. And, it was extra special being at the Aloha House for my birthday.

We used the snorkeling gear and enjoyed the soft towels as we visited the many beaches which are close by this home. My children are ages 6 and 8, and love this home like my husband and I do. They love calling dibs on the yellow or the blue room; it is a fun tradition we have. It is so easy to be at this vacation home, and it is exceptional for families with children.

Tracy, you think of it all, and my family and I will be returning as soon as we can. Maloha.

Good affordable vacation house with minor flaws

  • 4 of 5
We rented Aloha house for one month in August 2014 with two families (4 adults, 4 children). The house is very spacious and is quite comfortable for 8 people. The house has a large but very cozy master bedroom on the second floor, which is like a separate apartment. On the ground floor, there are three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Each room of the house is very nicely decorated and furnished. Overall, we had an awesome vacation time in Kauai and Princeville is a perfect location, particularly for exploring the north shore.
On the downside, however, we recognized that the house and some of the installed equipment is getting a bit long in the tooth and needs maintenance or replacement. We had significant issues with the roof, which was (and still is) in a very bad shape. In the entrance area of the house the paint was peeling as the roof has been leaking for a while and we had days with heavy rain in which the roof was leaking in several places, including the main living room. During our stay, about one third of the roof was being replaced, causing us various troubles with the roofer and days with lots of noise and other inconveniences.
Overall, there is plenty of kitchen equipment, entertainment devices, and beach stuff but not everything is really usable. While the washing machine and the dryer is quite new, the dishwasher is not working properly any more, i.e., half of the dishes came out dirty. There is plenty of dishware, but most is quite old with bended bottoms with the coatings being totally scratched, which causes problems in case you want to cook dinner meals. The hot tub is old but still useable. However, when the jets are switched on, there is a strong chemical odor, making it impossible to stay inside the tub. These were examples of issues, which make the house not a perfect place, but given the moderate price level, we could ignore some of the problem and we still had a perfect vacation.

Owner's Response: The roof was replaced and there are no longer any leaks. There was a storm that was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm thus the roof work was a challenge but was completed in an expedited fashion. Thus after the guests left the inside area was repainted looking new and fresh. The guests never reported anything wrong with the stainless steel dishwasher and if they had done so it would have been fixed so it would work properly for their month stay. The frying pans (the German guests called them dishware) are always replaced once a year and will be replaced. If the guest had notified the owner new frying pans would have been delivered. The kitchen has extensive dishes and services pieces that are new. The hot tub is weekly serviced and nothing was reported about the bromine level to high however, the hot tub cleaner has now lowered the level of the chemicals.

Large home with great views

  • 4 of 5
First the good - Tracy the owner is very responsive! When I e-mailed her that stuff was broken, she was on it right away. The on-site manager is right across the street and very nice and helpful. The views are amazing. Looking at mountains of Na Pali coast while cooking and different view of another mountain while eating. Just beautiful. Able to walk to the St. Regis Hotel beach in less than 15 minutes (walk through Hanelei Bay Resort - steep downhill walk at the end). The house is very large - the master suite (upstairs) is like its own apartment and slept our family of four with lots of room to spare. We had 13 people for a few nights and did not feel cramped at all. Much of furniture is new and beautiful. Lots of toys for kids. Very clean,
Then, the bad: there is definitely some deferred maintenance happening. The roof is leaking in multiple places. Only one spot was actually dripping and needed a bucket, but there is some mold growing under the leaks in the other bedrooms. One of the toilets was wobbly and some of the bathroom drawers didn't work correctly. Needs a paint job too. The equipment in the garage (bikes, etc. . ) was also not in great shape. This may have been due to the people before us abusing it, but I don't know. Plenty of decent snorkle gear in all sizes, though.
I would say for the price, this is a great place, but in our experience it wasn't in perfect shape. That didn't stop us from having a lovely family vacation.
Princeville- if you haven't been here, be aware that it's not a walking-type community. To get almost anywhere, you have to drive. There is one 'mall' at the entrance to the town and the whole rest is residential or hotels. Very quiet and safe, but not what I think of as a 'beach town'.

Owner's Response: The roof leak has been found and temporarily fixed. A professional roofer has been hired to address the issue when there is an opening in the schedule. The quarter size mold was removed from the ceiling due to the leak. The one bike out of the five had a flat tire has been fixed. A brand new jogging stroller was purchased. The boogie boards, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, snorkel equipment, portable Webber grill and beach toys are all in good order. The bathroom floor was replaced with a marble floor and the wobbly toilet is no longer. Princeville is a beautiful, safe, tranquil resort community and encompasses three different beaches, playground, restaurants, shops, 2 golf courses, 2 hotels and a grocery store. Hanalei is a 5 minute drive with more restaurants and shops.

Great home for extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had four couples from the Western US who gathered for time together. We found the home very comfortable and well stocked for many contingencies. Alas, we managed to hit an extended spell of extremely wet weather we found our outdoor activities more limited than we had hoped. We found the local weather forecast to not be accurate at all, and quickly learned to get outside with any possible break in the weather occurred. Other than that we had room for puzzles and games, food and drink. We especially appreciated the hot tub, and the washer and dryer. This part of Kauai is very beautiful, and we recommend the house for a reasonably priced group housing option.
