Kauai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Located on the Princeville Resort Makai Golf Course, this peaceful, Hawaiian style 400 Sq Ft condo has a private lanai, dedicated parking and a pool on site. Between the golf course and the lanai is the Queen's Carriage tree tunnel trail where you can walk in about 5 minutes to a secluded stretch of Anini Beach where you can swim and snorkel. Numerous world class surf spots including Hanalei Bay, Anini Beach, and Kalihiwai Beach are a 10 minute drive. You can walk to the Princeille Shopping Center, the Princeville Library, or the park in 10 minutes or less.

Recently redone with new flooring, fresh paint, new furniture and Island style décor, this is one of the best deals in Princeville. There is a new privacy wall by the bed separating the bed from the living area. Our kitchenette area includes a microwave, coffee maker, blender, and toaster oven and is stocked with a variety of kitchen utensils, place settings for 4, and a full size refrigerator to allow you to prepare simple meals. We are located in the back of Paniolo in one of the most peaceful locations. Our quaint condo is the perfect romantic getaway for couples.

About Ward & Paula Smith

I have been surfing since 1961 and still surf about 200 days per year. I retired from Santa Cruz City Schools in June of 2010. I like to surf, read, garden, and work on projects on the 10 ares where I live in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Paula is also retired and likes reading, a variety of crafts, walking, and the lounging around the tropics (which works for me). We both love to travel.

Why Ward & Paula Smith chose Kauai

We love the North Shore of Kauai which is amazingly green, littered with spectacular waterfalls, blessed with a slow pace, and still somewhat rural. It also has some of the best surf spots and beaches in the world. We were looking for a quiet and peaceful condo on the North Shore within walking distance of the beach and a short jaunt to a variety of surf spots. We also appreciate that is is less than 40 miles from the airport and the town of Lihue.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is in the back of our small complex off of the street. We enjoy sitting on our peaceful lanai with beautiful views of the golf course in the foreground and mountains in the background. Fifteen feet from our lanai, there is a dirt, tree-lined pathway that leads to a relatively secluded beach which we can walk to in about 5 minutes. We can also walk to Princeville shopping center in about 10 minutes and drive to Hanalei bay in less than 10 minutes. We often hang around the lovely pool located 50 feet from the front door of our condo. On Friday afternoons we often drive 5 minutes to the Hanalei Bay Resort to listen to Hawaiian music during happy hour.

budget condo

  • 4 of 5

Kauai north shore is the prettiest part of the island and the condo is easy on the budget. So many gorgeous beaches to explore. Ground level condo, barbeque, private lenai and full size frig are all a plus. Condo is quiet with easy access to the pool and Princeville shopping center. We observed 35 different birds during our stay on the island and lots of them are right around the condo. Owner responds quickly to every question and provides helpful beach, dining, and activity reviews and suggestions.

Can't Wait to go Back!

  • 5 of 5

Ward's place was absolutely perfect for my husband and I for our eight night stay on Kauai. Easy to get to, great location and adorable studio! The condo is walking distance to a beach, 3 minute drive to Queen's Bath and 3 minutes to the Princeville shopping center. We made most of our meals in the kitchen even though there are restaurants very close. Before you go to the store and buy food or beach gear, check the fridge and closets. There were all of the condiments we needed, beach towel & chairs and even an ice chest. We left behind some swimming gear as we can't wait to go back (and don't need it until then :) ). The weather changes very quickly on Kauai and we were unable to get in the ocean the last few days of our trip so we utilized the swimming pool on property. We saved so much money by staying at Ward's place and eating at home that we were able to go on a helicopter tour, zip lining (twice!), river boat tour and luau. Our trip was amazing and we will definitely stay here again!

Charming Hawaiian Condo on Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here for 6 nights, and we had a great time. The kitchen is big enough to make simple meals, and your a close drive to several great restaurants in Princeville or Hanalei. We loved the Hawaiian decor, we felt very relaxed and at peace during our stay.

The property is beatiful and well manicured. There is a great little pool and BBQ. The beach is a about a 15 minute walk from the condo, straight down the tree lined trail by the golf course. Be sure to check out Queens Bath too, less than a 5 minute drive (the path down is very steep though).

The North Shore of Kauai is a wonderful place to stay, and this is a great value. I will definitely be staying here again.
