Princeville Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)
Welcome to our ocean, jungle, mountain/waterfall view Princeville condo on Kauai's spectacular North Shore, one of the most beautiful and peaceful locations on earth. The Princeville Resort area is known for its gorgeous beaches, world-class golf, top-notch surfing, snorkeling, swimming, hiking, kayaking, horse-back riding, tennis, helicopter tours, dining, and shopping.
We are brand new owners and just finished a complete renovation of the entire condo in August 2012. Enjoy the redesigned kitchen layout with new hardwood kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, dishes, utensils, and cookware. Relax while enjoying the new furniture, tile and bamboo flooring (no icky-sticky rental carpet!), quiet ceiling fans, luxurious bedding, linens, and bathrooms. Some people will advertise a renovated or remodeled condo, but they've only replaced a few things. Everything in our condo is new, current, comfortable and inviting.
There is a king bed in the master bedroom, TWO queen beds in the guest bedroom, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The two queens in the guest bedroom allow you to sleep 6 comfortably in beds without having to use the sleeper sofa in the living room. Our condo is on the second (top) floor so you don't have the noise of anyone above you, and you have privacy since people walking around outside can't see in through the windows like they can in bottom floor units (no fishbowl effect). The condo has everything you need for a great vacation, including beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, cooler, books, movies, games, 42 inch flat screen, WIFI and more.
Ali'i Kai II is known in Princeville as one of the most quiet, peaceful, and immaculately landscaped complexes in the area, and our unit is in the building with the best location in the entire complex. We have an ocean view from our lanai (watch whales in season) and breathtaking jungle, mountain/waterfall views from the dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, and master shower windows. Ours is the only building with great views from both sides. Every other building has a parking lot or parking lot/pool view from the dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, and master shower windows. The cooling trade winds hit our condo perfectly. Also, the lanai's in our building don't face the direct sun, so you can comfortably sit out on the lanai all day long if you want to without overheating as you would in other buildings. Right outside the front door is a large greenbelt bordering a jungle canyon filled with tropical birds which sing the most beautiful songs each morning and afternoon. We are also close to the pool area (but not too close to be disturbed) with it's newly renovated and immaculate pool, separate kiddie pool, large hot tub, and ready to use gas bar-b-ques (Ali'i Kai 1 does not have a hot tub).
If you have read this far it is likely that you are familiar with the Princeville Resort area and all of its condominiums and fun things to do. You just need to decide where to go. Don't get stuck in just another 'condo'. We have taken great care to outfit the property with everything you will need for a worry free stay. No cloak and dagger here or disappointment; just beautiful, no hassle fun for a reasonable cost on the spectacular North Shore of Kauai.

I am an accountant and my wife Cindy is a high school teacher. We have three wonderful children: Ryan, Sarah, and Sean. We thoroughly enjoy Kauai and all the outdoor activities it offers: hiking, snorkeling, biking, surfing and more! We reside in Northern California. It is our hope that our condo brings you a bit of the tranquility and adventure that we've found in Kauai. (Picture is at the Waimea Canyon lookout-great hiking in Waimea and Koke'e State Parks).
Owner purchased this condo in 2012
Why Owner chose Princeville
We had never been to Hawaii until we came to Kauai for a family vacation in 2007. We fell in love with Kauai, especially the spectacular North Shore (it has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth). The lush, green mountains with waterfalls are awe-inspiring (you never get tired of looking at them). We day dreamed about owning a place here, but never could have qualified to purchase anything. With the recent real-estate decline, we were able to qualify, and our dream became a reality. Our hope is to spend a few months a year here in the future if we're ever able to retire.
What makes this condo unique
We feel blessed to have found what we feel was 'the best deal in Princeville' when we purchased our Ali'i Kai II condo. With ocean views from the lanai side and mountain views from the other side, our jaws dropped when we walked into the unit and looked out at the mountain/jungle through the dining room window. There was not a better view in the area for three times the cost. We loved the quiet location of the complex and the fact that the grounds and buildings were immaculate. Since the inside of most of the units are old and outdated, we decided to remodel the entire condo as opposed to just putting in new flooring and paint like most people do. We wanted to provide a condo that was fresh and new, consistent with a high-end rental, but warm, comfortable and inviting at the same time. Hopefully you'll agree that we accomplished our goal.
