Princeville Condo Rental Photos and Description

2BR Oceanfront Vacation Rental - Princeville, Hawaii USA

Travelers from all over the world have come to discover the rare beauty and peaceful sanctuary that is Princeville -- on the North Shore of the Garden Island of Kauai. Pu'u Po'a #204 is perfectly situated on an ocean bluff next to the five-star Princeville Hotel, in the Hanalei District of the North Shore of Kauai.

The prestigious Pu'u Po'a condominium is blessed with an incredible vista of the Pacific Ocean from sunrise at Hideaway Beach, to sunset over Bali Hai on Hanalei Bay.

Our 2,000 square-foot condo offers full ocean views from the living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, sun room, and large open-air lanai.

There is an on-site private tennis court, and a heated swimming pool that is beautifully perched on the bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean! This contemporary 54-unit condominium community is surrounded by beautiful Hawaiian landscaping to complement the unparalleled views from the site.

You will thoroughly enjoy watching whales, dolphins, sailboats, and surfers from the comfort of your vacation home. Relax with all the amenities needed to make your stay very comfortable and enjoyable.

Pu'u Po'a #204 features spacious and well furnished living accommodations. Soak in the Japanese O'Furo hot tub. Enjoy breakfast on the lanai overlooking Hideaway Beach. Prepare more formal meals from the full kitchen, and serve them in the dining room with a table and seating for six.

There are new appliances and furniture throughout, as well a large-screen TV, cable, a stereo, High speed Broadband Internet access, and much, much more.

There is an unlimited amount of activities available here on the North Shore of Kauai. Besides the 45 holes of world-class golfing within minutes of the condo, there are miles of walking and biking paths, as well as beach access to the exquisite Hideaway Beach -- just beneath our condo.

There is also easy access to Pu'u Po'a Beach on Hanalei Bay, in front of the Princeville Hotel.

Horseback riding is available nearby at the Princeville Ranch; polo matches are held in season at Anini Beach. People come from all around the world to hike the Na Pali Coast, as well as many other fantastic trails on Kauai.

Kayaking the seven rivers of Kauai is a treat only surpassed by taking a kayak out of Hanalei Bay to paddle with the dolphins and Honu - Hawaiian sea turtles. Ocean sports are unparalleled here in Kauai. Many people enjoy surfing, windsurfing, snorkeling, diving, sailing, and fishing, as well as swimming and beachcombing on the many beautiful beaches on the North Shore of Kauai.

So make your vacation dreams come true.

Viewing the majestic 4,000 foot-high Waialale Mountains with rainbows and waterfalls on the entry side of Pu'u Po'a -- and the awe-inspiring and ever-changing Pacific Ocean on the front, you'll see why so many people agree that Princeville is 'A Little Bit of Heaven That Fell to Earth'.

About Kevin or John

Originally from Pennsylvania, I spent most of my life traveling on ships, and ashore all around the world. I chose Hawaii as the best place to live because of its spectacular beauty, and it still offers all of the luxuries and conveniences that can only be found in America.

Kevin or John purchased this condo in 1998

Why Kevin or John chose Kauai

After 15 years of living;, loving and exploring the Hawaiian Islands, my wife and I decided that the North Shore of Kauai, and in particular, Puu Poa condos in the Princeville Resort, is the most beautiful location in all the islands. It also offers everything that anyone could ask for to live life to its fullest.

What makes this condo unique

Because Puu Poa 204 is our home when we are not traveling, it offers many amenities that you will not find in a typical vacation rental. We are sure that you will find as much joy and fun as we have in this incredibly special part of the world!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Kevin - We really enjoyed our stay in Kauai at your beautiful condo unit! I wish I could hear the stories of all the unique furniture pieces in your unit! Your dad was absolutely delightful when we spoke with him about details of the area, directions, and the unit. Everything we needed was conveniently there! Loved the snorkeling at Hidaway Beach and sitting on the lanai watching the beautiful sunsets. Truely peaceful and relaxing! Thanks for sharing your paradise!

Vacation of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently enjoyed our honeymoon in Kauai. Our stay was absolutely amazing and our accommodations at Puu Poa 204 were outstanding! The condo is extremely spacious and clean. The best part of waking up in the very comfortable King bed was the ability to look out the window at the breathtaking Pacific Ocean. The sun and living room provided us with ample space to relax and watch TV. We spent many nights sitting on the Lanai, watching the sunset or just relaxing to the waves of the ocean.

The condo is conveniently located in a quiet area of Princeville. It is within walking distance of many delicious restaurants at the St. Regis hotel who host a delicious breakfast buffet in addition to quick access to a grocery store. You are also within a short driving distance of Hanalei Bay which provided us with excellent restaurant choices, more beaches to explore, and boutiques.

There are numerous beaches located nearby; however, if you decide to take the trail to the more exclusive beach near the condo, prepared to be amazed. The scenery is like something out of a movie. You feel like you could be experiencing one of the most beautiful places in the world.

We have already recommended this condo to family and friends and can’t wait to come back here ourselves!

Simply paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved our stay at Puu Poa. The view from the patio is breathtaking, the condo was clean, comfortable and well stocked with beach gear. The beds are VERY comfortable and the master bath is really nice with a deep tub and double shower. Hideaways Beach below was our favorite in Kauai ...with excellent snorkeling and calm waters for the kids. Thank you John and Kevin for sharing your was a wonderful experience. We hope to come back soon!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Lauren and family, We are so glad that you enjpyed your vacation in paradise as much as we do. Maybe next time you can come back in the winter or spring. It is a thrill to watch the whales jumping in the ocean right in front of our lanai. Aloha, Kauai Kevin Puu Poa 204

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

The plusses: Very comfortable, fabulous view, convenient location for beaches & shopping, great setup if you want to cook or barbecue. Attractively furnished, washer & dryer.

The not so plus: bathrooms had mold & no windows, leaky roof in sunroom, which is why it's not 5 stars. We had a great time & would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Michelle, We are so happy that you had a great time in beautiful Kauai, and we would love to have you stay again sometime. Thanks very much for your comments and suggestions. Puu Poa has been my home for 17 years, when I am not traveling or working on a ship at sea. I have enjoyed being able to make upgrades and improvements each time I come home. Just this past year we have replaced carpets with hardwood flooring, painted the entire 2000 sq ft condo, and added lots of new furniture, mattresses and art work from around the world. I have considered putting in a window in the bathroom, but as the window would face the walkway and entry to the building, it be too open for sights, sounds etc. at the expense of privacy. I was actually home for 6 weeks just until a couple of hours before your arrival, and we spent many days with my housekeeping team doing deep and extensive cleaning. I can guarantee that there was no mold in the house. What you may have noticed was the milky white marks on some of our beautiful black, and green marble tiles around the showers and bath tub. Unfortunately, this was caused by previous guests or house keepers using bleach to clean it, and it scarred the tiles. And, we are in a very tropical environment and ocean front, so if you leave wet towels in the bathroom, they can have a musty smell quickly. It is best to wash them often. We feel so lucky to be able to live in paradise and are very happy to share it with others. We strive to ensure that every guest has the best possible vacation experience in our favorite place in the world. Mahalo Nui Loa, Kauai Kevin

Beautiful location on the island. Lovely ocean view! Would recommend and return!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful time on the north shore. This was our first visit to Kauai and were blessed to find this gem of a condo in Princeville. Couldn't ask for a better location and owners who were so great to work with, helpful and accommodating. The unit was nice and easy to access from the parking lot. We found the place clean and cozy. Loved having laundry amenity in the unit as well as a Keurig coffee machine. Sometimes it's the little things!

The only challenge we had was adjusting to the humidity and warm climate (there is no AC in the unit, as is common in most places). I don't know if there's a way to add some kind of window treatment/cover option to the front room/atrium but when the sun is shining through, it can have a bit of a green house effect and the place gets quite warm. But the sound of the ocean waves while falling asleep and waking is priceless.

Our kids enjoyed the pool as well as the beach at St. Regis Hotel (very close by). The Hideaway Beach located right below the condo was our first adventure. It is so worth the rather steep hike down. Gorgeous!

If we ever return to the Garden Isle of paradise, we will definitely be booking this location and condo again. Thank you Kevin and John for one of the best vacations our family has taken! You were very kind and helpful.

Owner's Response: Aloha Annie, We are so glad that you enjoyed our home and the many wonders of beautiful Kauai. I know that it can sometimes get hot in the summer time, when the sun sets almost directly in front of our home, but we do much prefer to hear the ocean waves instead of being cooped up inside of closed window room with air conditioning. Almost always, our 5 ceiling fans and the Tradewind Breezes bring that sweet swelling, Hawaiian Tropical natural air conditioning to our home. We hope that you will come visit again sometime. Mahalo Nui Loa, Kevin

lovely place in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This condo had quite a few things going for it and just a couple of knocks to take off the shiny 5th star.

Biggest Pros

Location, location, location. We love the North Shore, and this place next to Hanalei Bay and not too far from my favorite Ke'e Beach.

Hideaway beach was also one my faves, right down the path

Views! All across the apartment. Constant ocean over the green cliff.

Wonderful, large lanai

Close to St Regis. We spent a day in the rented cabana for pool and beach access. Wonderful day without the expense of staying there all week

Well furnished & supplied with towels, towels, towels

Biggest Cons

I don't mind a lack of air conditioning when the winds blow through with cool ocean air, but in the bathrooms it just got too hot and humid -- sometimes when you've been in the sun all

Which is why they may also have been a bit dingy and in need of either a revamp

The kitchen had a lot of dishes that needs serious cleaning before use.

The beach was a bit of a muddy, difficult climb down and up that my 4 and 8 year olds couldn't handle --- which meant the beach wasn't accessible from the condo ... we had to drive to it

Owner's Response: Aloha! We are so glad that you enjoyed your vacation in Kauai. I know that the trail down to pristine HideAways Beach can be tough if it rains. But we are also right next door to the Public Access, cement stairwell down to the start of Hanalei Bay. It is only a few minutes walk just to the left side of the St. Regis Princeville Hotel, which adjoins our property. There a quite a few steps, but we are also free to use the hotel elevators. Mahalo Nui Loa, Kevin

Beautiful property, great owners, what more can you ask for? Kevin and family are known in our family circles and are stand-up great people. The condo is on the most prime spot in the North Shore with the best views and privacy. The sound of the ocean all night cannot be beat and will relax everyone staying in the condo. Condo itself was very clean and supplied all the amenities needed from cooking to going to the beach. Thank you for sharing your bit of paradise and we will look to return soon.
