Princeville Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)
This lovely two en-suite bedroom and two bath condominium is one of the newest and the last approved condominium complex development in Princeville. It is located just across the street from the newly re-designed 45-Hole PGA Championship Makai Golf Course. The Prince Golf Course (Number 1 rated golf course in Hawaii) is also nearby, about a 5 minute drive from the condo.
The condominium is conveniently located on the ground level and the floor plan provides privacy to those traveling with other couples or family. Each bedroom and bathroom are on opposite sides of the unit which are separated by the the living area, eating area and kitchen.
There is a tiled lanai off the living area and master bedroom with patio furniture and lounge chairs. Although the unit is equipped with A/C, there are 4 sliding doors to open which invite the cross breeze to 'cool off' island style.
The condo is tastefully decorated with Island furniture and local artwork.
The complex is very quiet and relaxing with beautiful landscaping throughout for privacy. The pool and hot tub are only a few steps away but conveniently located so the pool noise cannot be heard from this unit. The gated pool area is surrounded by beautiful tropical plants and a large waterfall cascading into the pool.
There is a walking/strolling path along the Makai Golf Course that runs from the newly renovated 5-Star Resort, The St. Regis Hotel, to the Princevile Public Library and Princeville Shopping Center. You'll enjoy breath taking views of the mountains while you take your morning or evening walk.
The St. Regis Hotel is a must for cocktails at sunset where you will absorb the tranquility and beauty of the panoramic view of the mountains, Hanalei Bay and the ocean.
For beach goers, there are many beaches to choose from. Anini Beach is just a 10 min. drive from the condo where there is safe swimming and snorkeling any time of year due to the longest reef in Hawaii protecting the beach from large surf. This is a great beach for families with young children. Other nearby beaches are Secret Beach, Hidden Beach and several other beaches at Hanalei Bay, all within a few min. drive from the condo. Drive a little further north and you will find many secluded beaches all the way to the Napali Coast.
The condo is supplied with many amenities for beach activity, such as several different sized snorkeling gear, various sized water shoes, boogie boards, sand toys, 'noodles', kiddie flotation devices, beach towels, chairs, backpack chairs, umbrellas and various sized coolers to pack meals and beverages for your day trips.
The Plantation at Princeville complex has a private gym, exclusive to those staying/living at the complex. This is the only gym (public or private) on the North Shore.
The quaint and laid back town of Hanalei is only 2 miles away where you can shop for local artisian work, jewlery and clothing. In town you will also find a shopping village, health food store, a small town grocery store, a yoga studio, the Java Kai (great island coffee and homemade light breakfast/lunch meals), Bubba's Burgers, several shave ice stands, surf shops, places to rent kyacks, surf boards and scooters.
There are many places to grab a quick bite to eat or enjoy fine dining... from fish tacos at the Tropical Taco to tapas at the BarACuda (great food!).
For a special treat try the local fresh fish and organics dishes at Post Cards, one of our favorites. Another must and for budget dining is the Kilauea Fish Market in Kilauea - the BEST fish wraps ever! I have not tried anything else because the wrap was so good i didn't want to try anything else. But I hear the fish tacos are pretty great too! Open for lunch and dinner, to-go orders or order/pickup with outdoor seating which is limited. Wonderful people. Go early and you'll be able to buy fresh fish of the day,
by the pound to take home for your own preparation.
The Tavern is a new favorite on the island and is located at the Princeville Golf Club, serving a variety of 'comfort food'. This is famous Chef Roy's first restaurant as sole owner and has a different twist from his other co-owned restaurants throughout the islands. Here you will have a view of the golf course during the daytime/early evening hours. The bar is open for lunch serving a small menu of 'bar food'. The restaurant is open for dinner 7 days a week. Great place to eat.
As a convenience to families with babies, we have provided a pack n play, an umbrella stoller, high chair, baby swing, bouncer, baby monitor and a universal car seat. There is a variety of children's Disney movies, card/board games for all ages and an Xbox with 3 controllers and several XBox games for teens and older.
A newly constructed miniture golf course has just opened on the North Shore of Kauai (5 min. drive from the condo). It looks like a lot of fun! We have not had the opportunity to try it out yet, as it had not opened yet in November 2010.
Don't forget to save a day or two for the awesome hikes on the Napali Coast ranging from 4 to 11 miles. The trails start at the end of the road on the North Shore, about a 20-25 min. drive from the condo. These hikes are difficult and dangerous and are not suitable for small children but the views are spectacular and well worth the difficulty of the hike!
Another must for the 'to do' list is the beautiful National Tropical Botanical Garden, Limahuli Garden, 'A Window to Ancient Hawaii'. The 1.5 hour self-walking tour consists of 3/4 of a mile total walking distance. Bring your camera!

About Lisa Vitorelo
My husband is retired from PG&E as an Electric Crew Foreman. I have more recently retired from working in San Francisco for 24 years as a Corporate Administrative/Facilities Manager and Office Manager for the Corporate Headquarters of a leading newswire service.
To de-stress ourselves from very demanding jobs which kept us away from friends and family much of the time, we vacationed with our families and alone on the island of Maui every year for 10 years. We came to a point in our lives where our children were pretty much gown-up and we wanted to explore and experience another island, and hopefully one less traveled.
That's when we decided to visit the island of Kauai. On this particular trip, we spent the first half of our trip on Maui and looked at condos, then took a puddle jumper (and I do mean a puddle jumper!) over to Kauai for the second half of our trip.
As soon as we landed on the island we fell in love with it. It looked much more tropical then the other two islands we had visited in the past and we immediately knew this was where we wanted to purchase our island condo.
The island is breathtaking and has much to offer to those who respect it's beauty.
The mountain views are as spectatular as the ocean views, if not more.
We immediately feel at home on the island each time we come back, as we drive to the North Shore and unwind. The island just does something wonderful to you! We are proud to call this island our second home.
We are happy to share our home with you while you visit the beautiful island of Kauai. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do each and every time we come back to our island home.

Why Lisa Vitorelo chose Princeville
Kauai is more tropical than the other two islands we had visited in the past. Especially, the North Shore where you drive through beautiful canopies of flowering trees and plants with the spectacular view of the mountains on your left and the ocean on your right.
We love the North Shore of Kauai because it is more remote, laid back, quiet and less traveled. We love the small quaint, town of Hanalei which is just a few minutes drive from the condo.
Beaches are pristine, secluded and close-by. There is no tourist trap feeling here. There is very casual evening musical entertainment a couple nights a week at local hang-outs in Hanalei, some scheduled performances and some impromptu nights with very talented locals.
You meet exceptionally nice people where ever you go who not only carry a smile on their face but in their hearts.
What makes this condo unique
Pool, hot tub and gym are all on site and are a convenient and exclusive amenity to guests who stay/live at The Plantation. This is the ONLY gym (public or private) on the Northshore and it is private.
There is a meeting room with conference table, chairs, speaker phone, internet access and fax machine for those who may have specific business needs while on the island and require privacy.
Many secluded beaches and hiking trails close by. The quaint town of Hanalei is only 2 miles away.
There are many walking paths and one that goes from the condo to a nearby small shopping center, public library and a children's park.

Date of Stay
October 18, 2012
We really enjoyed our stay in Princeville. This was a great location near the wedding we were attending. The condo was very nicely decorated. It was perfect for us and it was a close drive to Hanalei, the beaches and the grocery store. The St. Regis was just down the road and we really enjoyed going there for drinks and to view the sunset. We received our deposit back quickly too.It was a great vacation and a wonderful start to my retirement!!
