LUXURIOUS OASIS DECORATED AND FURNISHED AS A SECOND HOME

Princeville Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Comfortable luxury at an awesome price – exclusive insider’s guide to Kauai included with stay!

ALOHA: We extend a big Aloha to you, our guests and hope you enjoy our second home as if it was yours. Our condo is appointed as a home not a rental as we spend much of the year here and open it to select guests the balance of the time. We find it ever so comfortable and want you to enjoy it as much as we do so, once your book your stay, we give you our special insider’s guide to the island with local tips and tricks for making the most of your stay in Kauai.

If you are reading this you may already know what a wonderful place the North shore of Kauai is.

Our complex Nihilani lies just a short walk from Queen's bath, the Makai Golf Club, whale watching, Hideaways Beach, and the St. Regis at Princeville Resort. Princeville itself is just a short drive to the gorgeous beaches, great shopping and gourmet restaurants of Hanalei. Further around toward the end of the road lie Haena and the beaches of Lumahai, Tunnels and Ke'e.

GOLF: Between the perennial top five in the state of Hawaii and top 50 in the United States Prince Course and the more user friendly 27 holes of the Makai Golf Club there is a golf outing to suit anyones desire or daring. Both designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Jr.

TRANSPORTATION: Princeville is about 45 minutes from Lihue Airport. You'll want to rent a car as we have our own garage for parking. If not, a taxi runs about $90/$110.

KID FRIENDLY: When we visit we often come with extended family and find that our condo suits that purpose well. We have a three year old and all of my six siblings all have children so we have made the condo as kid friendly as possible. There are board games, XBOX, beach toys, DVD/Blue Ray library, PaknPlay, high chair, snorkel equipment, bodyboards, beach mats, toddler and infant toys and baby gates and cabinet locks (if necessary). All of this “gear” is nicely packed away so if you don’t have kids, you would never know it’s there.

LIVING AREA and LOWER LANAI: We find our living area very comfortable with a U-shaped sofa and coffe table facing a 42' HD LCD TV. There is a Blue Ray player and good size library of movies as well as an XBOX. Giant picture windows open to the lower covered lanai where we enjoy evening outdoor drinks at the teak table that has seating for four or more. Late at night is good star watching as we face away from the rest of the complex and across the way is a large thicket of gorgeous local foliage between us and the next complex. Although we do get the benefit of hearing the calming running water sounds of their extensive entry waterfalls.

DINING AREA and KITCHEN: Leading in from the living space is an 8.5' French farmhouse table with bench seating on one side (helpful for kid seating). There are four barstools around the kitchen island for casual dining and hanging out. Across from the dining area is a buffet that is filled with kid toys, puzzles and board games. There is also a small game table next to the dining room that has checkers, chess, chinese checkers and backgammon built into it.

POOL AREA and BBQ: Nihilani has the most stunning pool area of any condo property on the Island. We love that we are just a short walk away yet just far enough so we never hear any noise from the pool area. That short walk comes in handy when you are grilling also!

About Tim Smith

In 2001 my wife and I met while she was vacationing here from New York. A year later I moved to New York to be with her provided that we move somewhere with surfable coastline and NO WINTER before the start of the third winter. She kept her end of the bargain and then some. Now we are in Marina del Rey, CA. In 2005 we returned and had our 'surfer wedding' on the beach at Pinetrees and the reception at the restaurant we met at that I used to manage. Years later after my Mother died of Mesothelioma, the small settlement we received allowed us to fulfill our dream of owning a place on the North Shore of Kauai - the most beautiful place on earth.

Tim Smith purchased this condo in 2009

Why Tim Smith chose Princeville

When we bought in 2009 we looked at every property available in Princeville. Nihilani was the newest and best designed property around. The unit we found was barely lived in and only a few years old. Every other place we looked at looked so lived in and worn down, but this place was perfect. The upstairs downstairs layout makes it really feel like a single family home.

What makes this condo unique

Unlike other rentals, ours is furnished and decorated as a second home, not a rental unit. You will find the first class furnishings, kitchenware and decor that we enjoy on our many vacations to Princeville. Our unit is perfect for young children and comes stocked with a PaknPlay, baby gates, and a strap on high chair as well as infant and toddler toys. Rainy day? No problem, avail yourself to our extensive DVD/Blue Ray collection, board games or reading library.

Great location for North Shore activities. Property has home like feel and proximity to pool area (which is very nice and seldom used) was a great advantage.Owner provided beach equipment made life simple when making daily trips to the beach. Home is well furnished and cooking facilities and equipment made our stay very enjoyable.

Outstanding Experience

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay so much! The owner was such a pleasure to work with! Answered questions and concerns quickly and thoroughly. Loved all the amenities available to use beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, snorkeling equip, just to name a few. The kids had so much fun at the pool and the BBQ's available worked great. Sleeping accommodations were very comfortable, we had everything we needed to help us feel at home. At the end of the day it was so nice to just relax and play games or watch a movie together. Would not hesitate to come back again. Thank you for sharing your home!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
It's been a week since we left Kauai, and we can't wait to get back. This condo was the perfect space for our group of 6, it had plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. From the moment we drove into the neighborhood, we knew this was going to be a fabulous trip. And the Nihilani complex is immaculate. Great pool and hot tub area with a BBQ grill that was steps from the condo. We definitely got all the comforts of home and more.

We were close to Anini Beach, which was perfect for snorkelers (like my fiance) and beach bums (like myself). And the condo had great beach gear in the garage. We didn't need to bring anything really! We had boogie boards, snorkel gear, and so much more.

We were just a short drive away from anything you want to visit. Hanalei Bay was about 10-15 minute drive, and had shops, restaurants, and bars. Even South Shore wasn't a long drive. I highly recommend Poipu Beach. We were able to visit almost the entire island while we were there.

The next time we visit Kauai, we will definitely want to stay here again. It was truly an amazing trip!

The Best Way to Stay on Kauai

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely 3br with two other couples and it was perfect for us. The house is fully stocked for a family or a couple families to stay together and really feel like they are living on the island. It's in a great location with stores and shops right around the corner so you stock up and cook your own meals. It's also really close to Hanalei where you can play in the bay, shop for souvenirs and visit some great restaurants. Tahiti Nui is the best Mai Tai on the island and the Dolphins is a great place for a top notch dinner. The home was even better than the description and everything in the home was super clean and well maintained. The owners were so helpful in recommending spots to go, providing towels, toys and everything you would need to hit the shores and have fun. They were also available by phone to answer questions, and though we only had a few, we never had to wonder about anything for long. I would recommend this for a family, or a group of friends and I would definitely love to come back and stay.

A dream house in paradise--the most amazing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and 4 other guests (all in a wedding party this coming October) made the trip to Kauai and stayed in this BEAUTIFUL property. Words...cannot possibly describe how gorgeous a.) the house is, b.) the neighborhood is, and c.) the island is. The house itself was more than spacious enough for 6 grown adults and had every possible amenity we'd need in Hawaii. It was so well stocked and livable from the word "go" that after 2 days it began to feel like our home back on the mainland (plus a couple thousand square feet and a better view)! I'm sitting here typing this and just shaking my head in disbelief at how utterly amazing it all was. The pictures here don't do ANY justice to the home or the owners' generosity in opening their doors to strangers..once you step inside, you'll never want to leave. Ever.

You know, I'm actually speechless about what to say. My wife and I love to travel--have visited China multiple times, Thailand, all the major islands of Hawaii among other places--and this was paradise. You'll stay in a palace in paradise. I've got nothing else to type! :)
