About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath vacation house, ocean & waterfall views, walk to beach, WiFi

This lovely Hanalei Bay vacation rental home, is a classic Hawaiian style pole house - suspended on poles and giving the house fabulous circulation from the cooling ocean breezes. The location and the views are unbeatable for a relaxing beach vacation. From nearly every room in the house you can see Kawaikini and the stunning Makana ridge (also known as Bali Ha'i), these mountains are often flowing with beautiful waterfalls and we have a bird's eye view of the third green of the Makai golf course.

This three bedroom villa is located walking distance to nearly everything you want to do in Hawaii - from surfing, snorkeling, golf, lovely walks and paddle boarding - to the 5 star amenities of the St Regis Hotel (formerly the Princeville Hotel), which is less than 100 meters from the Villa. The hotel has great restaurants, a spa and an elevator or steps that take you right down to the beach where Hanalei Bay meets the Pacific Ocean. The fun and funky town of Hanalei is about a five minute drive from the villa (or a longish wade) from the Princeville public beach.

The famous Prince golf course is also less than 10 minute drive from the villa. The Prince is ranked as Golf Digest’s #1 Golf Course in Hawaii and one of America’s Top 100 Greatest Courses.

A designated parking place is only steps away from our front door, and free wifi is provided. Ask for the password after you have made your reservation.

Hike the Kalalau trail, snorkel Ke'e or Tunnels - you are only a short drive away! Hideaways, the best snorkeling on the island, in my opinion , is right across the road from our house, a five minute walk. Unsurpassed sunsets over Bali Ha'i may be enjoyed nightly from the ocean bluff just a three minute walk up the road.

This lovely villa has an open plan living room, dining area and kitchen with fabulous high vaulted ceilings and sliding glass doors leading out to a lanai - the perfect place for you to enjoy everything from your morning coffee to evening cocktails while you watch the sunset.

The living and dining room are very comfortable and there is a flat screen TV. There is also a DVD player and a stereo with radio and MP3 connections.

The kitchen has granite counter tops and is extremely well equipped, much more like a home than a vacation rental, and the dishes and glassware have an island touch - perfect for preparing great meals for friends and family. The whole of this upstairs area has dramatic views of Makana Ridge, Hanalei Bay and the Makana golf course. There is a half bath on this floor. You can enjoy both sunrise and sunsets from the home's two private lanais.

There are three bedrooms downstairs, all with high quality linens. The master bedroom has a California king bed, TV, ensuite master bathroom and a private lanai, with more of the same beautiful views of the bay, the Makai golf course and mountain waterfalls. The second bedroom has a queen bed and more beautiful views of the mountains, golf course and Hanalei Bay. The third bedroom has 2 twin beds, and just like the other bedrooms, it has beautiful views of the mountains and golf course. Bedroom 2 & 3 share a bathroom.

Island motif is felt throughout the home along with great circulation from all sides of the villa, which helps to catch the island breezes on those warm days and nights. We also include are boogie boards, some assorted snorkel gear, beach towels, beach chairs, along with other necessities to make your Hawaiian vacation perfect.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location. Suggestions: need to replace the upstairs toilet( overflowed), light bulb in kitchen, master BR needs 2 Luggage racks since there is limited space to store clothes.

Everything else was perfect!

Property had fantastic views, no a/c, dirty floor and carpets.

  • 3 of 5

No a/c, so sleeping comfortably was a problem, especially when the roosters start up around dawn. It also was very damp after the rains.

The tile floors were not clean, which was a problem when Hawaiian custom is to leave your shoes off at the door. Our feet were black within the first few minutes we were walking in the house. The carpets were filthy as well, probably because the tile was dirty, then walked on the carpet.

The condo was well stocked, the views were fantastic.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this review, Dean, and thank you for drawing our attention to the state of the floors! The owner was just over there, and he also noticed this. He brought it to the attention of the cleaners, and it has been taken care of. I'm glad that you enjoyed your vacation! Lynda

Such a beautiful villa. The location was perfect, right next to the St Regis (definitely go to watch sunset there at least once, the champagne ceremony each night along with the views were beautiful).

The views off of the balcony in this place were breathtaking. The pictures are 100 percent accurate. Easy to get to any part of the island but this villa in north coast was definitely the perfect place to stay.

Woke up to the most wonderful view on Kauai

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with three friends and we loved it. What wasn't clear to us until we got there is that this is a completely separate detached townhouse, on stilts, and perfectly designed for friends or families. It's perched on the edge of a canyon that is filled with beautiful, flowering jungle trees and populated by all kinds of birds - you really feel that you're in the countryside. The house was well equipped with everything we needed and although it was very hot during our stay, there is a cross breeze and with the help of fans we were able to stay cool enough. A washer and dryer was a great addition and the beds were comfortable. Expect a gecko or two! The main event is the view from the decks (and most of the rooms) which the photo shows and which is a fantastic way to start the day. After a night of rain, the mountains were laced with massive waterfalls. It was very quiet, except for the roosters, who were indeed very annoying in the wee hours but they're everywhere so you can't avoid them! Ear plugs worked. We were a little worried about not being directly on a beach, which is the location we usually choose, but we were very happy here, it's well located for exploring the beautiful North Shore. Almost opposite the house is the trail to Hideaways Beach - which has the loveliest pale blue water in Kauai. The trek down is not for the faint hearted - it's a steep and jagged path with ropes to hang onto but worth it if you have strong legs! You can also go to the beach at the St. Regis (entrance is just 100 yards away), either through the lobby and via elevator or down a side path, also a little steep, but that beach is not so great for swimming - better for snorkeling. There are no day passes to the St. Regis pool facilities unless you rent a day room which is $350, or a cabana which is even more but you can eat and drink there and the sunset view from there is fabulous. It WAS hard to find in the dark - best thing to do is to drive to the end to the St. Regis gate house, turn around and it's the second little parking entry drive on the right. (Each group of houses has a small parking area for 8 cars.) Very satisfied with this house and had excellent, helpful communications with the owner/manager. We still dream about that view and the balmy perfumed air . . . aaaah.

Awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this lovely place. A true value for the money. The view from the top deck is prettier than the pictures show and is so enjoyable to relax on. The unit was stocked nicely and we appreciated having beach towels and snorkel gear available. The location on the north part of the island couldn't be any better! Thank you for sharing your lovely home so that my family could affordably visit this piece of paradise!

About Lynda English-Bervid

The homeowner is a highly regarded general contractor at Lake Tahoe

Lynda English-Bervid purchased this house in 2007

Why Lynda English-Bervid chose Princeville

The homeowner wanted a well built, free-standing home. He loved the 'pole house' idea, which allowed great ventilation and a tree house feel, and was captivated by the amazing panoramic views of both Hanalei Bay along with the stunning waterfalls in the ridge lines of Makana Ridge. He also wanted to be able to walk to beaches, bars and restaurants. Having the ability to walk from the house to go surfing, swimming and paddleboarding was a huge attraction.

What makes this house unique

Being owned by a builder who often stays in the property, this property is well maintained and is continually being updated.
