About the property

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.

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.

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.

Such a feeling of Ohana!

  • 5 of 5

We've been vacationing on Kauai for over 30 years, but this was our first extended stay (5 1/2 weeks) in Princeville & what a wonderful holiday it was!!! We enjoyed: easy & efficient booking; clear directions from the airport & into the studio; helpful suggestions to acclimate us to the area; a comfortable (bed & sofa SO comfy), cozy, private, & well-appointed Hawaiian-style studio; close proximity to beaches, groceries, dining, walking paths, & entertainment; gentle breezes, abundant sunshine, & magnificent birdsong.

We had the pleasure of meeting the owners, some neighbors, & staff who were to a one helpful & friendly...it's that feeling of Ohana! My husband & I would undoubtedly return to Ward & Paula's idyllic spot again...it's PARADISE in PARADISE. Mahalo🌺

Great Property, Great Value

  • 4 of 5

We only stayed in Ward and Paula's studio for two evening's, however we would definitely return. If you are looking for a good North Shore location, good space and good value, look no further. Keep in mind, this is a studio with amenities to warm up meals (no stove/kitchen) - but if you're making breakfast and lunches and grilled dinners (grill available) then this is your spot!

It was very clean, great sitting area and all the amenities you really need.

Thank you Ward and Paula, it was a pleasure!

Great for short getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Super location for exploring northern Kauai. Grounds well maintained, very quiet, friendly neighbors, easy parking. Minutes from grocery store and misc shopping, Queen's Bath, golfing, Princeville Airport.....I'd recommend a helicopter tour! 10 min to town of Hanalei or the lighthouse, 30 min from the Napali Coast beach and hiking. Very comfortable for one or two people. Owners very accommodating and responsive. I'd recommend paying with a check to avoid PayPal fees. I have already suggested this unit to friends and family.

Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This little condo is the perfect place for any time of year. The bed and couch are very comfortable. The location is very convenient for walking to the Princeville shopping center and it is a short walk down to a great beach!. It was very clean and cute. I would recommend this to any couple who is visiting the island or if your a student looking for an easy place to stay on the north shore of kauai. They have all the things you need for the beach as well! Ward and Paula are always quick to respond when you have any questions. Great place! I can't wait to go back!

Perfect space for two

  • 5 of 5

The condo/studio was small but perfect for two people. We played our ukuleles on the lanai which looked out on a golf course, a very peaceful setting. The neighbors were all quiet. We used the pool a few times and it was well maintained. We spent most of our time exploring the island and listening to live music at night. The best shaved ice is JoJo's in Hanalei about ten minutes away. If you are in the mood for a spa experience, we highly recommend Auntie Angelina's in Anahola, about 20 minutes away. It was wonderful. We would definitely book this place again.
