1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4
Unbelievable Views, Perfect Princeville Location
Loved this condo and would definitely stay here again! My husband and I stayed here for our first wedding anniversary (and it was our second trip to Kauai). Walking distance to two great beaches (Hideaways Beach and Pali Ke Kua Beach) and the breath-taking Queen's Bath (which is muddy but worth the hike). A couple small notes -- there's no air conditioning so if that's a need for you it's a head's up, but with the windows open and fans going, you definitely don't need AC. Also there's lots of snorkel and beach stuff in the upstairs closet, so no need to pack it!
Spectacular place overlooking Hanalei Bay
The situation at Pali Ke Kua couldn’t be better, overlooking Hanalei Bay, with the paved path down to Hideaway Beach in front. That is a steep path, but short, and we managed it daily including one brief muddy patch to what is a very tropical beach with a private feel with enough sandy areas to be manageable, and absolutely superb snorkeling, best we’ve seen: turtles, eels, octopi, and at least fifty varieties of fish.
The condo with a loft has soaring ceilings, making it feel very spacious, and took four of us in comfort. Pitched on the edge of Princeville, it gets the tradewinds strongly, which is great, so you don’t need air conditioning at night, with everything open. Kitchen/dining/living areas are comfortable, and the condo units have separate levels to enter lower and upper units, so you don’t feel you’re ‘upstairs’. The lower units do not have pitched ceilings, and some have free-standing air-conditioning to make them comfortable: go for the upstairs units. There were couples below us while we stayed, but we heard nothing, unless outside. Some equipment comes with the unit— 4 chairs, some snorkeling equipment. We rented equipment to fit cheaply at Hanalei Windsurfing.
Hanalei itself is an easy drive. The parking areas for the beach there are crowded, and it is noticeably busier and more humid than Princeville on the bluff. The road beyond town was still closed in July... Kilauea Lighthouse and Anini are short drives for wildlife or a comfortable family beach (Anini). We ate mostly in, Foodland in Princeville is a good supermarket: the fish is very fresh, go early: and get the Foodland App, you’ll save a significant amount of money. There are restaurants etc there, and Lappert’s is always busy with great ice cream.
We did go one night to the Makana Terrace at the St. Regis, a splurge, but superlative food and a great view, the best of Hanalei Bay in the area. The terrace is covered, so okay even if it showers...
Very nice location at a good price
We were very happy with our stay here, and the location was very nice. We would book this unit again.
Great view from the lanai and easy access
Pali Ke Kua 207 was comfortable and charming, with great views over the palm trees and tropical vegetation out to the ocean. You could walk down the steep, paved (although slippery) path to private Hideaways Beach, right below the condo. The kitchen was well stocked (although salt & pepper would have been appreciated), and games were provided in case of a rainy day. Lori was personable, thoughtful, and responsive, and we received our damage deposit back quickly. I would highly recommend.
Perfect spot in paradise.
This place was everything we imagined. Spectacular ocean views, whale watching from your own lanai, cooking in the fully stocked kitchen, walks to your private beach or the to Pizza Pub. We enjoyed every minute of our week long stay at this condo.
Stunning views, beautiful landscaping, sound of the ocean was so peaceful, easy access to main road.
We really enjoyed Kauai. This property offered stunning views of the ocean. Amazing view of the mountains behind us. Nice access to a small beach. The condo had everything we needed. Would stay here again when I return to Kauai.
