About the property

Studio with Kitchenette - Sleeps 2

Discounts available based on length of stay. Our Studio has ceramic tiled floors and a large porcelain tiled shower. All the ceiling areas have been filled with insulation and faced with 2-ply bamboo. Our studio is located at Sandpiper Village I. The Sandpiper grounds boast beautiful mature landscaping and a recently renovated pool complex with a large tile-bottomed pool plus a good size jacuzzi and two Webber gas grills. My studio is less than a minute walk to the pool.

There is no cooktop or oven in the studio, however, there are Webber gas barbecue grills available for guests to use on a complimentary basis at the large pool complex, located less than a minute's walk from the unit. Hot meals prepared in this manner can either be enjoyed at the pool or taken back to the studio. The Princeville Resort is located on Kauai's North Shore where you are just minutes away from exploring her many wondrous attractions such as pristine, secluded beaches, the best Kauai has to offer. Great snorkeling, windsurfing, board surfing, or swimming are just minutes away as well. A hike on the Kalalau Trail along the Na Pali Coast reveals unparalleled vistas of ocean, mountains, waterfalls, and sheer cliffs that will stay with you forever. And for the golf enthusiast, Princeville is the home of two world class golf courses, the Maikai Course and the Prince Course ranked #1 in Hawaii by Golf Magazine. Both courses offer discounts to guests of Princeville Resort

About Karl or Rachel Forer

My wife, Rachel, and I first visited Kauai in the early eighties and just got hooked. We bought our first vacation rental property in 2001 at Sandpiper Village in Princeville and spent about 5-1/2 months renovating it. We dreamed that one day we might be able to make Kauai our permanent home, and we were fortunate to actually make this happen in January of 2006. We bought our second vacation rental property at Puamana in August of 2010, as our second vacation rental property. and after a renovation period, placed it on line as a 3 bedroom 2 bath townhouse vacation rental. It was at that time my daughter, Regan, came on board to assist with property management.

Regan and I keep busy managing both properties, when we're all not dancing, playing softball, Pickleball, or at the beach. One of the advantages of living here on Kauai and offering vacation properties for rent is that any issues with units that may arise are addressed immediately and decisively through direct communication between the guests and me, the owner. There is no go-between management company in the loop to delay any action that may be required. It's a win-win for everyone.

Great Honeymoon Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Karl and Rachel's studio for our ten day honeymoon getaway to Kauai and could not be happier. In addition to being in a great location (the North Shore ended up being our favorite part of the island; see below), the studio is quiet, clean, comfortable, and just the right size for a couple. Karl and Rachel were great to work with as we struggled to nail down our exact dates and kept changing things on them. We had the opportunity to meet Karl and Rachel when they were restocking the property and got to tour their 2-bedroom rental as well, which is also very nice and what we plan to rent when we come back with the kids. We spent quite a bit of time talking to them and they were kind enough to share their favorite places with us, as well as a lot of the island's history. The property description and photos provided here and on their main web site are thorough and accurate.

The area is fantastic and exactly what you'd expect from a Hawaiian getaway. Princeville and the town just west of it, Hanalei, are cute, quiet little towns with great food and shops, and the best beaches on the island are just a few minutes away. If you decide to stock the studio's full-size refrigerator, there is a supermarket with decent pricing in Princeville (for which Karl and Rachel provide a discount club card).

We were very pleased with the property and look forward to returning ASAP!

Owner's Response: We were pleased with the chance meeting of Angie and JW at the condo and found them both to be very friendly, enthusiastic and out-going. Their new found love affair for the north shore and Kauai in genreal was quite apparent as we talked about places on the island they've already visited and those yet to be seen including several secluded word-of-mouth beaches. We look forward to their return visit is the not-to-distant future. Karl & Rachel

Very clean, basic, great location close to store but quiet. Hot tub was the best!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay, no complaints only suggestions. A toaster oven or a hot plate would really have made our stay! Or a George Forman grill... also the shell mirror was too bulky so we took it down for fear of knocking it off the wall, maybe lower profile mirror would be better in that space or just a nice photo. Thanks for the standing fan it was great to have, over all very pleasant stay. Would stay again and recommend

Great location, perfect for two people

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here! It was a great location on the north shore. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. The full sized fridge was nice, had some snorkel gear and beach chairs, and shampo/conditioner/body wash. It was perfect for two people and the fridge and microwave are a help to prepare some meals if you're looking to save a bit of money. It gets a little warm but if you keep the windows open and fans on at night it's fine. Highly recommend!

Beautiful area with a budget stay

  • 3 of 5

The area and grounds were great! The condo was clean but dated. Great for a lower budget stay which we wanted because we were not in the room but to sleep. Strong suggestion would be to supply more than one towel/wash cloth for a week stay since there is not a near by laundromat to wash them!!
