Located on Punahele Point, one of Princeville's most desirable neighborhoods, Hale Pukana La (the House of Sunlight), offers the ultimate in tropical living! Situated on a bluff above the ocean, the house features partial water views. With 3 master suites, this house is ideal for larger families or couples traveling together. Architectural notes include cathedral ceilings, skylights, ceiling fans in every room and graceful columns surrounding the sunken living room and adjacent family room. This really is a magnificent house, with fine art, beautiful furniture, and a gourmet kitchen. Two of the suites feature king beds and walk-in closets, the third has a queen bed, and there is a giant bean bag chair that converts into a queen-sized bed in the family room (perfect for kids - or adults - it's really comfortable!), an inflatable queen mattress, and a Pack 'N Play for infants. There are 5 TVs, 3 DVD players, 2 CD players and a surround-sound system in the living and family rooms.
Location is Everything! Hale Pukana La is located on a quiet cul-de-sac above Queen’s Bath, a natural lava pool filled with tropical fish and protected from ocean currents during low tide. The path to Queen’s Bath runs from the property and it is less than half a mile to the St. Regis Resort with breathtaking views and incredible restaurants. Truly spectacular sunsets, and a perfect Bali Hai vista, can be viewed from the end of our cul-de-sac at Punahele Point. World-class golf, tennis, island entertainment and idyllic sandy beaches are nearby. There are miles of hiking and bike trails, wildlife refuges and botanical gardens. You can arrange for a private guided jungle hike, waterfall excursion, jeep adventure or helicopter tour. A large playground and the beautiful Princeville library are less than a mile away. The Princeville Shopping Center provides groceries, movie rentals, shops and dining for all tastes. We also have a housekeeper who lives on-island, so she is available to quickly address any issues.
The Fabulous Fun Closet - We Offer Something For Everyone!: What is a “fun closet”? It is where we keep all sorts of fun items for your vacation enjoyment: coolers, boogie boards, snorkel sets, a surf board, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, four bikes, portable grill, beach bags and mats, plastic glasses for the beach, travel mugs, beach toys, and other items. (The beach items and bikes are kept in the garage.) We also have free WIFI, lots of board games, chess sets, playing cards and puzzles in the dining room closet, and a hammock and gas grill available for your use at the house. There are five TVs (one in each bedroom, one in the breakfast nook and one in the family room), three DVD players, a large assortment of DVDs, a few music CDs, a Hawaiian cook book, lots of novels to borrow, and a few tourist books on Kauai. Items do change due to guest use, but the number of fun items only increases over time! This will save you time, energy and money - no need to bring these items from home or rent them on the island!
We also provide free high speed wireless internet. There is a nice desk in one of the master bedrooms, complete with a printer and copier just in case you have to do a little work while in paradise (like I sometimes do...!). There is a gourmet kitchen complete with a Belgium waffle maker, coffee grinder, crock pot, high end cookware, vegetable steamer, two blenders, a double oven, and two rice cookers. Eat in the formal dining room or in the kitchen nook. We also have a large gas grill, seating for 8, and a comfortable hammock outside. There is a Jacuzzi tub in one of the bathrooms and a step down shower in another. Perhaps the most perfect spot to watch the sunset in all of Kauai is only a half block away, at the end of our cul-de-sac at Punahele Point. Punahele Point also offers whale watching during the winter months and a goregous view of Bali Hai. Hale Pukana La caters to many tastes with something for everyone! This is paradise!
