Why Cathy Morris chose Princeville
We travel a lot, and Kauai is the most beautiful island we have ever visited. Sealodge is a very special place on a very special island.
What makes this Condo unique
Sealodge is located in the beautiful north shore of Kauai. You are within minutes of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The Sealodge property is very quiet with lots of open green space to enjoy the magic that is Kauai.

Cute house, very functional , great location. Not perfectly clean, but ok. It was very hot during our stay and the fact that there is no air conditioning and the fans were old and inefficient made our stay in the house unpleasant.
Please let me know if the place is not perfectly clean, I will rectify the problem immediately. As you can see from other reviews we are usually complimented on the cleanliness of the unit, so this is unusual. Yes, August was unusually hot in Kauai, the ceiling fans and the trade winds usually keep the condo at a pleasant temperature.
Unfortunately we had a bad experience at this rental. We were in town early and asked if we could check in an hour or so early. The property manager never returned my call/message. We were there for 4 days and received no calls! Upon entering the condo we were overcome by a very strong odor. The odor was reminiscent of urine. We thought maybe the condo needed to air out, unfortunately that was not the case. The fans were not sufficient enough to help circulate the air. The odor did not go away. Thank goodness for the ocean breeze at night. The view was as advertised but we could not enjoy it because the wood used for the patio floor were in need of repair. Moving chairs around and finding a good footing was a chore and it just seemed unsafe. The cleanliness was the biggest issue! The bathrooms were dirty, counters were dirty, fans were dirty, towels were thin and rough (as told by other reviewers). No beach towels were supplied, which to me is a small investment for renters to have a more enjoyable stay. Some people travel very far and don’t want to pack the entire house in order to feel comfortable or at home. No sponges were supplied to wash dishes. I believe this property needs a top to bottom cleaning and possibly a new management group. I try to give the benefit of doubt to everyone but I believe the owners need to visit their condo in person and access it in its current state. We had to take photos as proof to the conditions so we weren’t blamed for it. There is great potential in this place but I feel the cleanliness, odor, and lack of upkeep made our stay very disappointing.
I a quite surprised at this review. First, I was NEVER contacted by this renter,I always respond to any inquiry in a timely manner. You can see by previous reviews that the condo is clean. We visit two times a year to ensure the condo is in tip top shape. The reason that there are no beach towels is that there is no way to provide for their cleaning. Instead we provide beach chairs, coolers and an umbrella.. In the info we send before the rental we specify tat there are no beach towels. I am sorry he did not enjoy his stay in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Lofty, breezy and quiet.
We had less than 2 days in Princeville so too busy exploring and surfing to spend much time at Sealodge. It was a great base to explore this amazingly beautiful location. A great ocean view plus peeps of mountains out every window. Nice and breezy unit to come back to on a hot day. Smaller than others but two levels meant the 4 of us could have space apart.
Cathy was so easy to deal with too.

The condo location is great! Plenty of beach sand toys and boards to use. Just a suggestion to add a couple more fans to the condo and to supply beach towels for guests to use
Great location and value
Clean condo by the water in princeville. Good communication with owner. Just be aware, no AC in case it gets very warm like it did for us.
Amazing and peaceful location
This condo is awesome! The location is peaceful with a great ocean view! Unit is very clean and had ample room for 4 adults! The beach umbrella, chairs and coolers were a godsend. Loved our stay and will definitely return! Malhalo!!
