Overview

Princeville Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

For Honeymooners, newly in love, wedding on the beach, to outdoor enthusiasts and those just looking to unwind, this special place has been known to make you fall in love and you when the day comes to go home, the joy you find is the memories you created and you can't wait to book your next vacation here, as quickly as you can.

You awake to catch the awesome sunrise, while sitting on the lanai with your cup of freshly brewed local coffee. Contemplating what adventures will we explore today. We start with a stroll along Hanalei Bay for our morning walk, find our favorite cafe's for breakfast or grab some yummy fruit from the local Farmer's Market, to eat at the condo. I also pick up freshly cut Tropical Flowers at the Farmer's Market, to add to all the Plumeria fragrance that embrace our condo.

Further Details: Perhaps some golf today? Snorkel in Ke'e Beach at the end of the road?

Or we pack up our insulated backpacks(provided) with enough goodies to last a full day at the beach, for playing in the surf, paddle boarding or just enjoying the beauty that embraces you. Kids, dogs, adults frolicking in the bay, watching the others strolling along the old Hanalei Pier, taking photos, kids jumping off into the bay, laughter and sounds of excitement abound. Then you look up to this majestic mountain where the crown is always hiding in the cloud, with white ribbons of falls cascading down, against green velvet. You just sit back take a deep breath and say, ''Wow, I am living my dream!''

When you arrive, we get you started with a ''Welcome Package''.

Our way of saying ''ALOHA and MAHALO!''

Feels like home but on vacation...

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this condo 3 times now and each time it gets better. We branched away from the resorts a few years ago and I don't think I will go back. This condo has the vacation magic of Kaua'i but with all the comforts of home. It helps me relax knowing we can stock the fridge, do laundry, sleep-in or wake-up early, go on a walk or jog, and all at everyone's own pace. You truly get to enjoy every minute of vacation when you don't have to plan every meal out, make sure everyone is hungry at the same time and feels like the same food. We pack much less knowing we can toss in a load of laundry(save a lot in baggage fees too). Everyone had their own space and didn't have to live out of a suitcase, a piles of laundry for 2 weeks.

The condo is stocked and maintained with kitchen supplies, blankets, beach stuff, the basics and beyond. You can tell the owners want you to fully enjoy what the condo has to offer. We had some of the best nights staying in, eating dinner around the table, watching the sunset from the lanai, followed by rounds of very competitive card games and lots of laughter.

The setting of the condo is serene, the views are incredible, the golfers are entertaining, the parking is close and always available, there are no stairs to lug suitcases up and down. The grounds are beautiful and the community is quiet. Princeville is such a central location for our family who enjoys beach days, hiking, shopping, restaurants all near by. Each time I have visited the condo has something new to offer, from fresh paint, a new TV, new carpet, new beach chairs, etc. It is refreshing to see owners who take pride in their place and want their visitors to have the best experience.

This will continue to be my first choice for years to come! Thanks for all the great memories.

Kamaʻaina!

  • 5 of 5

GREAT location, view and open floor plan that comfortably accomodates 2-4 people. A short drive to Hanalei Bay, Tunnels, and the Na'Pali coast, the north shore awaits your passion to experience the outdoors. A large, full-size kitchen with plenty of room to spread out and cook with the freshest local fare that you can get just about every day at the local farmers markets nearby. Enjoy morning coffee and evening bbqs out on the spacious lanai overlooking the golf course and ocean, which is frequently adorned by a rainbow in the distance. If you are looking for 5-star luxury with silk sheets and silver platters, this is not for you, but if you plan to get out and experience all that the island has to offer and want an affordable, comfortable and clean place to rest after an awesome day, this is the place for you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share you experience, at the Kamahana. I am so glad you appreciate all that our "beach casual" condo has to offer. Waking up to those beautiful sunsets, watching the birds entertain us, particularly the albatrosses, then enjoying a glass of wine, watching the ocean, at the end of a relaxing day, at the beach, never grows old! You are so correct! You cannot duplicate this setting/location, at this reasonable price! Until the next time...Mahalo!

Fair price for fair place in good location

  • 3 of 5

I'm not sure why people are rating this a five-star place. It's a three-star place at a three-star price and as such is absolutely fine for the budget traveler. It's not a five-star place at a three star price. If you're looking for a budget place in a good location, this fits the bill nicely. The owner describes it as 'casual' - I would say, old. Let me list pros and cons below so you have a realistic understanding of what you will get.

Pros:

Location - as advertised, it's on the 15th fairway of the Makai course, with a view of the water. The location is convenient for staying on the north shore and it's pretty quiet. This is the first place I've stayed on Kauai where I did not hear roosters all night long, so that's a plus! Many couples walk the golf course in the early evening, and when the skies are clear, having the fairway just off the lanai makes for great star viewing.

All the stuff you need: the place is well equipped with beach stuff (chairs, mats, snorkeling gear, coolers, beach towels etc.), so you can just show up with your swimsuit and sunscreen and know you've got access to what you need for a day at the beach.

Great Wi-Fi: Although the guest book warns that internet can be spotty, I found the internet connection and Wi-Fi were first rate, fast and reliable.

TV: A perfectly adequate flat screen digital TV if you really must watch TV while in paradise.

etc.: a functioning kitchen with all you need, a grill on the second lanai (although it was so hot we never used it), washer and dryer, plenty of towels

Cons

As I mentioned, this is an old unit. That means rusty appliances, mold in the bathroom, carpeting and uncomfortable furniture. Since we don't spend much time in our room, it was absolutely fine for us, but some people might balk at this if they don't understand the ravages of tropical weather on things. You're not going to find granite counter tops and a big walk-in shower here, and you shouldn't expect to.

The furniture was not particularly comfortable. Outside there is one plastic lounge chair and a table with four chairs, so two people can't stretch out at the same time. Same situation inside - one futon/couch and a couple of less comfortable/formal chairs. The bed was okay, nice and firm, but the lack of ceiling fans made it uncomfortably hot in the unit. There are a couple of stand-up fans. When the trades blow it's fine, when they don't it's miserable. No a.c. goes without saying.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our condo! Your review is helpful in our future plans, for our home away from home. We appreciate the confirmation, that when you live next to the ocean, it can be a challenge dealing with the effects of the sea air, on your appliances, cars, barbecues, lanais, window treatments, clothes, cabinets and bathrooms. It is easy to get trapped into a "disposable" world when it blemishes and deteriorates the appearance of such items. We prefer to continue using our very functional items, for instance the fridge is like new inside and has an awesome ice maker. You could replace a barbecue every few mos; a fridge every couple of years, no matter what you do to preserve their appearance. We prefer to do our small part in leaving less of an impact on the island/planet, by not disposing of items, just because they are discolored, no longer pretty. Not living there full time, we are always in search of ways to preserve our household items. In fact, we just found a beautiful magnetic cover for our fridge, being installed today. "New" is a very temporary and short lived term when you live next to the ocean. "New" becomes quickly "loved" by the sea air! Great idea on the ceiling fan! Our portable fans have been an adequate partner with the "trade winds". We live in Lake Tahoe a non AC world. Which is why we fell in love with the "trade winds" at our condo and location. I think guests are so accustomed to AC, they forget to open windows, doors and sliders to reap the benefits of that amazing sea air! Typically when you buy a vacation home, it comes furnished. We have replaced items, over time and we will continue to make improvements, each visit we are able to make! When we are on vacation, indoors is the last place you will find us! If you are looking for location, at a very fair value, fully equipped, yet "casual", you found the place. If remodeled/updated/AC is what you desire, we have the beautiful St. Regis down the street and the newer Westin, across the Makai Golf Course. P.S. Thank you for pointing out the lack of roosters! We have the much loved Albatrosses and the Nene's for entertainment!

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic. Great location, great views, and we loved having a kitchen and access to so much beach gear! It was the perfect home base for our vacation adventures. Sealodge beach is a short hike away, and the everything on the north shore of Kauai is beautiful. Really can't recommend this place enough.

Great condo in Princeville.

  • 5 of 5

We had SUCH a nice week in Princeville. I missed out on this summer recovering from a major back surgery, so this Summer-in-a-week was so appreciated. The condo is well located and has lots of glass to let the sun and ocean breezes in. I worked a few days from the patio and it was about as a good as a work day can get, with the views of the ocean and fairways. The beautiful St Regis is a 25 min walk, and 5 mins away it is possible to walk down the cliffs to the water if you are up for a little adventure. Our typical day started with Hanalei Coffee Roasters or Kilauea Bakery (WOW!), followed by exploring of beaches, or a drive down to the south side of the islands with stops at the Korean bbq in Kapaa (YUM!). We also spent a lot of time on the Princeville walking paths just enjoying the weather. I would definitely love to spend more time here with my wife and family, and the owner is thorough and delightful.

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic eight-day stay at your condo! The location, furnishings, convenience, and overall design & style of the condo perfectly met our needs and we immediately felt at home. We were especially thrilled to be lulled to sleep by the refreshing trade winds, and then waking up to glorious sunrises!! Kaua'i is an incredibly beautiful island and the condo provides the ideal homebase from which to fully experience it. Thanks for everything!
