Overview

Princeville House Rental Photos and Description

Easy walk to beach and shops. Luxury private Oasis.

What a location! Choose a morning swim and snorkel an easy 15 minute walk away at Anini Beach or have a dip in your own private pool. Princeville's shops and restaurants are under 5 minutes walk away. Yet Zen Garden's quiet location is peaceful and private.

Centered upon a private and peaceful walled courtyard with 40 foot heated pool with antique Japanese statuary beyond and the sound of a welcoming fountain, Zen Garden offers

2600 fully air conditioned square feet of the highest quality construction and finishes.

It is hard to describe the luxury of this home without seeing and feeling it. Custom built-ins abound. The entire home apart from the bathrooms is floored with gleaming tropical hardwood. The kitchen truly is the ultimate chef's kitchen, with abundant solid hardwood built-in cabinets, pantry, commercial appliances, triple Franke main sink and Franke prep sink with advanced water filtration, double garburators, dedicated on-demand constant hot water systems, and huge granite island with 10 ft. eating bar. The bathrooms are of the highest quality with on-demand hot water, Hansgrohe Luxor wall mounted faucets and fittings.

Outside and inside blend seamlessly thorough double fully opening Nana walls, allowing the flow of breezes throughout the home and connecting all living areas with the shaded poolside outdoor seating and dining areas. The living room Nana wall has an electric phantom screen which lowers from the ceiling. Here you can live in luxury and relax in elegance and style.

...And what a place to relax. Enjoy complete privacy as you laze or dine alfresco beside the pool, protected from sun and passing showers and cooled by the ceiling fan. Enjoy the enclosed poolside shower and separate half bathroom.

There is also a lovely back garden with mature avocado, pomegranate, citrus and banana trees and a huge and very productive mango tree.

There are full indoor and outdoor dining areas. The living room features 9 ft and 6 ft sofas, (which can comfortably sleep additional children) and a 60' flatscreen with Netflix and Apple TV. There is even a natural stone gas fireplace for those “cool” winter evenings ( on Kauai, that's when the temperature drops below 70°!) Zen Song offers high-speed Internet and VOIP phone with free USA and Canada calling.

The generous first master suite, opening to the courtyard, has a solid hardwood king bed, pool view office area with built-ins and ensuite with 9 ft double sink granite countertop and granite-walled shower room with pebble flooring and jetted tub and bay window. The second king master suite beside the mature, peaceful garden has a full luxury ensuite. Both masters feature new top of the line 800 pocket coil memory foam-encased mattresses with organic bamboo covers. The third queen bedroom with new Sealy Posturepaedic mattress is adjacent to the second half bathroom and the enclosed poolside shower is available for the use of guests in that bedroom.

Zen Garden is perfectly located: On a quiet lane, but only a five-minute walk from all of Princeville’s shops, restaurants and other facilities. You really can take an enjoyable stroll over for morning coffee or back after dinner and live entertainment. The footpath leading to Anini beach, about a 15 minute walk away, passes within 100 yards of the house.

Relax in the knowledge that unlike some offerings, this is a licensed vacation rental in the Princeville Visitor Designated Area with a caring and involved owner and under the scrupulous professional management of the Principal Broker of a local real estate office (who manages only a very few select properties) together with a dedicated and professional team of cleaner, groundskeeper and maintenance personnel. We all care very much about your vacation rental experience, as the 5 star reviews show.

(Please note that due to high energy costs on Kauai, there is an optional daily charge for pool heating and/or A/C if desired. Pool heat and A/C would be viewed by many as quite unnecessary given our wonderful climate, but that is of course is up to the guest. Pool heat would only be desirable in winter. A/C would only be desirable in high summer. Most houses in Princeville are built without A/C or pool heat. In addition, Zen Song is of 6 inch cavity wall construction and insulated (again unusual for Princeville) resulting in a home which is very cool in summer. There is no need to decide on this in advance. Arrive and then decide if the house is cool enough and the pool is warm enough! If you decide on pool heat and/or air conditioning, we will be happy to make the appropriate arrangements promptly).

About Simon Lord

We're a dad plus four family with ages from 11 up. Simon started professional life as a British barrister and has practiced as an attorney in Calgary, Canada for .... too long! Anna and Alexandra work in the hotel industry and property management respectively in British Columbia and the boys are in school. We come to Kauai with a whole range of perspectives but we all think it's the best place in the world! We just purchased, so this listing is new, hence the lack of reviews. We are determined to exceed your expectations and make your experience completely positive. We think the repeat guests ….and the positive reviews... will follow!

Simon Lord purchased this house in 2014

Why Simon Lord chose Princeville

After falling in love with Kauai and years of vacation renting on the North Shore, we knew where we wanted to stay. Simple to express but very hard indeed to find in Princeville: An elegant, modern, luxurious home with a gorgeous pool. Here it is!

What makes this house unique

Floating at night in the absolute peace of your own pool, star gazing and feeling the soft Kauai rain on your face...Waking for morning coffee on the covered lanai then picking fruit from your own garden for breakfast...

A house built around a courtyard. Walls are no longer allowed in Princeville but the privacy is wonderful. A heated pool and even a fireplace for winter - we immediately thought of Christmases here. And central air conditioning, a rarity in private homes but great to have on the occasions when the trade winds are replaced with 'Kona Winds' resulting in sultry weather. All these features and more show Zen Song's 'regardless of expense' construction with the highest quality fixtures and fittings. Add a wonderful location within walking distance of everything - a car could be optional here - and you have a very special place that you may want to return to as we do, again and again.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect in many ways, located in one of the most beautiful spot of Kauai, the lush and paradisiac North Shore. From the house you can walk to the Princeville Center and to the charming Anini Beach. Hanalei Beach with all its restaurants and stores is only about 10 min drive. The house is tastefully furnished, great layout with all modern amenities. The Japanese feel all over the house makes it a very peaceful and relaxing place. We loved our time in this home and will highly recommend it!

Breathtaking home

  • 5 of 5

I found this home after searching a large amount of rentals for our wedding week, so blessed to have found this place! We couldn't be more pleased with our choice. It was an amazing backdrop for getting ready on our wedding day with plenty of room. We enjoyed keeping the nana doors open for circulating air and listening to the sporadic downpours. We loved our little friends all around us in the Zen garden including frogs, lizards and baby chicks. The surroundings we lived in for the week were like a fair tale. We used the chef kitchen to cook a few tasty meals and it was very convenient having two refrigerators and an ice maker. It was also helpful to have an ice chest, chairs and snorkel gear available for our use, a few less things we had to rent! My husband made delicious morning smoothies with a mango and grapefruit from the orchard in the backyard. Master bed was extremely comfortable and I loved the huge walk in closet!! The shower in the master bath was so convenient and open with a jet tub in the same area...loved all the space and privacy! Lastly the pool was definitely icing on the cake, my husband spent most of his time in there. Beautiful pool, plenty of room to do laps as well as an area you could sit to lounge. So happy with our experience! Clean, well maintained and a lovely owner! Thanks Simon for giving us such a great opportunity to stay in your Zen garden! We would love to come back for our anniversary :)
