Princeville vacation rentals

Get the best of both worlds in Princeville

So, you want the rugged volcanic rises of the Na Pali Coast but you don't want to kick it like a surfer in the seaside shacks? You want to laze on Hanalei's golden-sand beaches and visit its hearty farmers' markets but still want the luxuries of an all-American vacation? Cue Princeville, which sits capping the tall cliffs on Kauai's north shore with its resplendent mansions. Princeville vacation rentals are swish, stylish, and packed with mod cons, and they still manage to command sweeping sea views over the Pacific and the verdant summits of the Halelea Forest.

Princeville is packed with adventure

Princeville is a gateway to the wondrous natural playground that is the north shore of Kauai island. With Princeville vacation rentals on the clifftops, you'll have the perfect perch for those early morning yoga sessions. Then, it's just a hop to the local farmer's markets down in Hanalei. Others will ride boats out over the Pacific swells to bounce atop the waves in the company of elegant bottlenose dolphins, or just to be guided around the gasp-inducing landscapes that form the Na Pali Coast. Helicopter flyovers of that majestic stretch and the great Waimea Canyon are also possible.

Princeville is peppered with beaches and volcanos

Beaches – the main reason so many flock to the Aloha State each year. Princeville has its very own private jewel. Hidden between two black-rock cliffs and studded with boulders, little Pali Ke Kua Beach is the stuff of postcards and travel brochures. The Na Pali Coast reserve is, of course, another must-see along the shores, and little Hanalei town is steeped in sugar-growing history – the local Grove Farm museum can help with that. The mist-topped peaks of the Halelea Forest Reserve also always beckon – don the boots and prepare for glimpses of formidable ancient volcanos.

Princeville shines in the springtime and fall

While Princeville vacation rentals fill up to bursting during the winter months with snowbirds flocking the chilly weather of the contiguous 48 US states, it's hardly a surprise that's the priciest time of year. It doesn't have the prime weather, though. That accolade goes to the spring and the fall, when the temperatures are regularly around the high 70s and low 80s, there's plenty of sun, and there aren't so many people jostling for the most attractive villas on the north shore coast.

Princeville sits between cliffs and volcanos

The north shore of Kauai is surely one of the most distinctive natural wonders in the whole Aloha State. It's carved and crashed through by the soaring peaks of the Na Pali Coast, rising almost vertically from the crashing Pacific Ocean in sinewy ridges that often pierce the clouds. In its shadow, you can seek out bottlenose dolphins and blue whales. Immediately behind the town is the Halelea Forest Reserve. That's where the volcanic ridges rise and rise to meet dense woods packed with palms and wild boar.
