Bedrooms 2
Space 1,215 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4+. Enjoy free internet access!

If you're looking for the perfect combination of natural beauty and elegance, then this upscale home on Kauai's incomparable north shore is the place for you. From the moment you step in you experience the inviting warmth of bamboo floors and Polynesian-themed decor. High ceilings with clerestory windows make the rooms bright and airy. In the fully equipped kitchen, you have everything you need to whip up tropical smoothies or piña coladas and sauté fresh seafood from local waters. Centrally located in the Princeville Resort and just a short walk away from gorgeous Anini Beach and the Princeville marketplace. Very close to great restaurants, scenic panoramas, and recreational activities.

Whatever you need from your vacation, this recently remodeled, beautiful 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condominium is the perfect base!

Prime Location: This charming vacation home sits in the beautiful Princeville Resort on the north shore of Kauai--a highly desirable vacation area. We are bordered on one side by emerald mountains with cascading waterfalls and on the other by the Pacific Ocean and beautiful beaches, one of them the famous Anini Beach, which is a ten-minute walk down a tropical forest trail.

Anini Beach, resembling the lagoons of Tahiti, is protected by a large outer reef, which makes for safe swimming and snorkeling. This natural exotic reef is teeming with colorful fish and the beach combing is unsurpassed.

Indulge yourself and your loved ones in paradise. While staying at this unit you will be in close proximity to the lush sea cliffs that tower over Kauai's picturesque Hanalei Bay, minutes from world famous Na Pali Coast, and within reach of Waimea Canyon--and many more sights and activities you won't want to miss.

Enjoy horseback rides to an 80-foot waterfall or a scenic ocean bluff. Soar over the lush valleys of a 2500-acre family-operated working cattle ranch on an 8-zip line course. Hike and kayak to hidden waterfalls. Marvel at the awesome beauty of Hanalei Valley from the Lookout, just off Highway 56 and 0.5 miles away from our home. Whether blue skies arch above or tropical mists dance around the mountain tops, this breathtaking valley view is one to be remembered.

Visit lovely Hanalei town to wander through quaint shops and galleries. Crescent-shaped Hanalei Bay is a premier surfing spot in the winter. This North Shore jewel is also a playground the rest of the year for swimming and canoe racing.

Great golf in a magnificent setting: Take it from the master of Golf Course architecture--'Golf doesn't get much better than here at Princeville at Hanalei' (Robert Trent Jones, Jr.).

Princeville at Hanalei features 2 World-Class Championship Golf Courses: Prince Golf Course and Makai Golf Course, making up a total of 45-Holes designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., to enhance the natural habitat of Kauai’s North Shore while providing strategic variety for golfers of all skill levels. Year after year, top golf magazines rank the Makai and Prince Golf Courses among the country's best. The Makai Course consists of three separate nines - Ocean, Woods, and Lakes, each starting and ending at the clubhouse. All three provide the golfer, whether novice or professional, with challenge and variety. Both Prince and Makai Golf Courses are within the Princeville resort within walking distance of our vacation home.

Spacious and comfortable home base!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had such a lovely stay at Jana's place! So spacious and comfortable with everything we needed. A fantastic home base to come back to after busy days of sightseeing and beach hopping. We felt very much at home here. We appreciated how quiet it was and loved relaxing on the 2 lanais. Kitchen is fully stocked with all you need to make your own meals and the decor and ambience was perfect. We also appreciated the snorkel gear provided. Anini beach close by was one of our favourites and we were really happy with our decision to stay in the north of the island. Communication with Jana was fantastic - she was always quick to respond. We would absolutely recommend her place to anyone planning a trip to Kauai! Maholo Jana!

My wife, her sister and boyfriend, and I recently stayed at Jana's place for 9 nights and it was absolutely perfect. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. Wyllie's beach is just a short and rigorous hike away. The front and back lanai's were the perfect place to enjoy our morning coffee and a book. Jana has a great selection of books, games, and movies. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. There are air conditioning units in the bedrooms and the living room, although you do have to pay extra to use the unit in the living room. Since we visited the island in January we didn't even think about or need air conditioning. The ceiling fan in the master bedroom and the standing fan in the second bedroom, along with open windows created a lovely breeze that kept us comfortable. Plus, this house has one of the best furnished kitchens I've ever seen in a rental. There's even a grill, although we did not end up using it.

Jana also has a ton of beach gear available and everything was in good condition- 4 beach chairs, a mat, a couple of boogie boards, a beach umbrella, snorkeling gear, water shoes, toys, two ice chests - seriously, she has everything you need to enjoy your day at the beach!

The location is great for everything on the North and East side of the island—from Lihue to hiking the Napali coast. Driving down to Poipou or Waimea is an hour or so—but it's a gorgeous drive to enjoy with the windows down.

Jana is a great owner- easy to communicate with and very responsive.

Our only note to future guests would be that the pool can be a bit chilly in January, so if you're visiting in Winter just bring some good sneakers and walk down the hill to the beach.

Thank you, Jana!

Owner's Response: What a joy to hear that your time in my home on the Garden Isle was memorable--thanks for taking time to write this thoughtful review! Looking ahead to what I hope will be a return visit: the pool is currently being renovated with tile that should warm up the water a little year round.

Comfortable condo in a very good location.

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from our relaxing vacation. Thank you, Jana.

Agree with all other 5 stars reviews. House is equipped with everything you need. Comfortable bedrooms, two showers, spacious kitchen, front and back lanais. For our family it was just what we needed. Location is great. Anini beach is just a short drive away. We tried the trail from Westin, but it was too slippery, so we decided to go by car. Tunnel beach is also in short driving distance. Which is important if you want to find a parking place there. We did a lot of snorkeling, turtles, turtles, turtles, took a Kalalua trail to waterfalls and made a day trip to Waimea canyon. This was really a relaxing time.

It would be great to return someday.

Many thanks again.

Irina and family.

Close to the best Kauai has to offer!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two teens and I stayed at Jana's condo from August 16-23rd, 2017. We had stayed previously at a large resort in Princeville last year, so we feel we have a little perspective. Jana's place was large enough to accommodate us comfortably and we found it to be extremely well located, quiet, and nicely furnished. Jana supplies a large assortment of beach gear (we especially appreciated the umbrella) and the kitchen is stocked with everything who might need. We had a great time snorkeling at Anini Beach (a short walk away) and saw lots of turtles and fish! The beds are quite comfortable and the showers are large and beautiful. Considerations when you are showering a lot! A surprise benefit to Jana's condo is that the parking is only a few steps away. You don't realize how important that is until you are there. Jana was very easy to communicate with. We spent mornings on the quiet lanai and enjoyed the singing birds and tropical plantings. For us, this was much truer to the real Hawaii we wanted to experience than the resort we had stayed at last year and we will definitely be back at Jana's condo.

Owner's Response: What wonderful news that my condo helped your family enjoy its time on the Garden Isle--thank you for taking the time to write this detailed review. And please do make a return a trip! A note to future guests: I've just purchased a new high-quality mattress, which should make the master bedroom all the more comfortable.

Located on the north shore of the magnificent Hawaiian island of Kauai. About 26 miles from the Lihue airport, 15 miles from the small city of Kapaa, and a short distance from Hanalei Bay.
