About the property

3 Master Suites (3 bedrooms w/attached private bathrooms). Sleeps 10.

Located on Punahele Point, one of Princeville's most desirable neighborhoods, Hale Pukana La (the House of Sunlight), offers the ultimate in tropical living! With three 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 wonderful 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!), two inflatable queen mattresses, and even a Pack 'N Play for infants. There are five TVs (one in the family room, one in the breakfast nook, and small TVs in each of the bedrooms), three DVD players, a very large assortment of DVDs, several guide books on Kauai, two CD players and a surround-sound Bose system in the living and family rooms. One bathroom features a deep tub and another has a large step-down shower and double sinks. We are the closest house to the path to Queen's Bath and the beautiful waterfalls you pass on the walk down to the ocean - through a gorgeous tropical jungle!

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 behind the property. It is less than half a mile to the St. Regis Resort with incredible restaurants, a nice bar, breathtaking views, and a gorgeous beach which is open to the public. 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 right in Princeville, so she is available to quickly address any issues.

The Fabulous Fun Pack - We Offer Something For Everyone!: What is a “fun pack”? It is all sorts of fun items for your vacation enjoyment: coolers, boogie boards, snorkel sets, a surf board, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, a few bicycles, 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 the family room, one in the breakfast nook and small TVs in each bedroom), 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, 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 eight, and a comfortable hammock outside. There is a Jacuzzi tub in one of the bathrooms and a step down shower in another. Hale Pukana La caters to many tastes - with something for everyone! This is paradise!

Nice house in Paradise

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house in Princeville for two weeks. Two couples occupied the house for two weeks, and one additional couple was there for one week. The pictures on the website need to be updated. The backyard is completely surrounded by trees and vegetation, which is nice for privacy, but there is no view of the ocean and you can only hear the ocean when it is completely quiet, which is rare. The house sits right next to the small parking area for Queen's Bath and the entrance to the trail, and it can be noisy in the early morning, and during the day. All of the furniture is not the same as in the pictures, and one bedroom was missing a TV. The house was definitely big enough for all of us, very comfortable except for the kitchen chairs. These chairs are in bad need of replacement (there were boxes in the garage that appeared to contain new chairs and table) . We had to keep repairing the chairs and sat very gingerly in them to make sure no chair collapsed and the person fell. At one point we used the formal dining room chairs, but they too are in need of replacement, or at least new seats. The dishwasher's brackets are broken, thus leaving the dishwasher unattached to the counter. Had to be very careful when opening and closing the door. The cookware (skillets, griddles) were severely warped and need to be replaced. There are several beaches, shopping, and sightseeing nearby, just be prepared to drive everywhere. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Princeville, but would recommend that the owner take care of these issues sooner rather than later.

Wonderful house - spacious, well-located and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My extended family including adults and kids stayed here for one week - the house was wonderful. There was plenty of room including towels, bedsheets etc. The kitchen was well equipped and we pretty much cooked every meal there. There was plenty of things for us to use at the beach and snorkel...The location was convenient - in a beautiful neighborhood but quiet and away from crowds and traveling to the rest of the island was doable. We had a great stay and would recommend to friends for sure. We had no problems communicating with the owners (but didn't really have any need since everything was clear and available as stated).

Beautiful Property!

  • 4 of 5

Everything as pictured, except for Queens Bath shots, which depict an idyllic almost hot tub like, scene. The path to get to QB is tortuous & the pool itself was pummeled w/ ocean swells, rain, mud & certain death should you try to get in.

A short drive to grocery & amenities, a little longer trek to Hanna Lei, beautiful.

Owner is kind & accommodating, with many added touches to enhance the time spent. We would absolutely rent this property again! Thanks Anna 💕

The house was wonderful, great layout!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful, great layout! There is more room to move about than what the pictures portray. The backyard was relaxing and enjoyable, we loved the chickens that came out everyday. The chickens do not belong to the house but are an island theme, you will see them everywhere. They are very friendly and they do not bother you, some of them are quite gorgeous. This house is steps from the Queen's bath, but before you go there please check the high tide report for that location as the waves will hit you when they come in if the tide is too high and you have the potential of being pulled back out to the ocean.

If you are looking for lots of greenery, calm and peaceful times this is the perfect spot. If you are looking to do more of the touristy things and don't mind a small drive but still want the greenery, calm and peaceful times this is the spot. Should you not want to drive you will need to book more of towards the south shore but there you will find busier times and not so much of the greenery.

The only upset that my husband had was that the jets did not work in the jetted tub. After hiking to the Hanakapi’ai Falls he was hoping for some comfort but instead I sent him for a massage! Other than that it was a perfect stay!!!!! I would definitely book this house again should I return to Kauai.

About Anna Graves

Our family loves to travel - but there is no place we love more than Kauai! My husband and I stayed on Kauai on our honeymoon, took a timeshare tour to get discounts on helicopter rides, kayak rentals, horseback excursions, etc., and wound up buying the timeshare. We returned to Kauai every year after that and realized we loved it so much, we had to buy a house on the North Shore. A few months later we became the delighted owners of Hale Pukana La in Princeville. It is a magical place and we know you will love it as much as we do!

Anna Graves purchased this house in 2005


Car: recommended

Welcome to Paradise! From the house you can easily walk to Queen's Bath, a unique, naturally-formed lava pool filled with tropical fish, or drive to gorgeous nearby beaches or the charming, artistic town of Hanalei. Local activities include golf at the famed Princeville courses, swimming, surfing, hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, horseback riding, zodiac tours of the majestic Na Pali coast, tennis, boating, whale watching (Dec - May), kayaking on the placid waters of the Wailua River, helicopter tours, wind surfing and zip-lining. Golfers know that the Prince Course is rated by many as the No. 1 course in Hawaii, and the newly renovated Makai Course is getting rave reviews since it reopened! Other attractions include many wonderful restaurants, local artists, historic Hawaiian sites, stunning sunsets, breathtaking waterfalls, traditional luaus, and visits to Waimea Canyon, known as the Grand Canyon of the the Pacific. Your vacation here is almost unlimited!

One of our favorite beaches on the North Shore is Ke’e Beach which is at the end of Route 560. Ke’e is in Ha’ena State Park and is great for swimming and snorkeling - often with sea turtles!

The house itself is truly beautiful with fine art, comfortable furniture and a wonderful location. Here are some extras that set us apart:

*We have a housekeeper who lives in Princeville, so she is readily available if there are any unexpected problems.

*We have a large kitchen stocked with all sorts of items which allow you to be a gourmet chef while on vacation, including a variety of spices, oils and salts. There are local farmers' markets all over the island to supply - and inspire! - you.

*We provide a full size washer and dryer, detergent and bleach for your use, and an ironing board and iron for those nights you will be visiting one of the incredible local restaurants. We recommend Bar Acuda, the Hanalei Dolphin, Bouchon, Neide's Salsa and Samba, and Postcards for dinner, Tropical Taco, Bubba's Burgers, and The Mediterranean Gourmet for lunch, and the Hanalei Wake-Up Cafe for breakfast. Live music - and great drinks - are featured several nights a week at Tahiti Nui.
