Among one of the best ocean front views in Princeville, our condominium is located on an ocean bluff at ocean’s edge, and affords you a 180 degree view of the ocean with ocean front views from every room of the condominium except the second bathroom. If you look at our reviews you will see we are often the choice for special occasions such as honeymoons and anniversaries. We are also a great choice for 2 couples since both bedrooms have king size beds and the 2nd bathroom is only 2 steps across the hall so no one is a 'second class' guest. Along with spectacular waves crashing throughout the day and night, you will see an ongoing parade of cruise ships; outrigger paddlers; sea kayaks; humpback whales spending their winter vacation here from about December to April while the females give birth; turtles feeding directly below on the reefs at Turtle Cove; fishermen fishing in the surf at the Sealodge beach; small boats of various descriptions; a cacophony of birds; and exceptional rainbows. You can even lie in bed at night watching and listening to the waves while you drift off to sleep.
The condominium is 1100 square feet and has been completely updated. By “completely updated” my husband says that I should tell you that this means that “the unit was stripped to the studs and totally rebuilt”. The unit is located on the 2nd floor 6 steps up from the parking lot, and is on one level. There are travertine floors throughout, with 3 foot high granite countertops in the kitchen and both bathrooms, and slate tile on the lanai. There is an on site pool with chairs, restrooms and an outdoor shower. Tennis is off site and there is no charge.
The master bedroom has a 4 poster California king Stress O’ Pedic bed, en-suite master bathroom with dual headed marble and glass shower and Sanijet hydromassage tub. The second bedroom has a California king pillow-top bed and a dual headed marble and glass shower located just across the hall. There are extensive mirrors in both bathrooms including a magnifying make up mirror in the master bathroom.
Communications and electronic gear include a 48 inch LCD HD flat screen television and a blue ray Sony DVD player in the living room, a 39” flat screen television with BruRay player in the master bedroom. Cable TV is provided for both TVs and there is a high speed internet and Wi Fi (wireless) connection. A TEAC MP3 and CD player is located in the living room. There are telephones located in the kitchen, master and second bedrooms that provide local service and can be used in conjunction with prepaid long distance calling cards.
Beach paraphernalia include two 42 inch boogie boards, snorkeling equipment for 2 adults (1 male and 1 female including masks, snorkels and fins) and snorkel and masks for 2 children. Beach chairs for 4, coolers, and beach towels for 6 for both pool and ocean days.
We look forward to sharing our Kauai vacation home with you and we would be happy to answer any questions you may have about our unit.

I am a photographer and my wife Cate is a retired dietician. We have a cat and and 2 dogs. This is our home for 2 months of the year (Without the animals unfortunately). We enjoy travelling and hiking and all things outdoor. Kauai is a wonderful place to do all these things.
David Gallacher purchased this condo in 2009
We fell in love with Kauai many years ago when we spent our honeymoon here. We have been back many times and finally decided to buy our own condo here. We vacationed at Alii Kai twice and finally decided that we should have our own unit here.
This unit is only minutes from grocery stores, shopping and restaurants. Hanneli is about a 15 minute drive. Hiking, golfing and horse back riding are a short drive away and the scenery is spectacular.
We thank you for the opportunity to share in the magnificent beauty of your home. The accomodations were choice. Helpful tips were great as we navigated ourselves w/family and friends around Kauai taking in all we could and then some in a short time.
Capturing the beauty of a sunset & the rise of the full moon on this island is awesome ! Turtle cove is a sight to behold.
I visited Kauai and this remarkable condo with my husband, my sister and brother-in law - our first trip to the Islands. It was very clean and accommodated a group of four very well. David provided a wealth of information about the area and things to do. He was very easy to work with.
There is a floor-to-ceiling bookcase just asking to be used, which I believe my sister did for reading material while there (not that we had much down time). The complex appears to be high-end and is kept very clean. I thought the price we paid for this condo was very reasonable. Other prices are a bit high in Kauai, but the condo was very affordable for us. It's a very quiet complex.
The view from the Lanai is extraordinary. Waking up to the sunrise and the sound of waves breaking against the shore was very relaxing. We saw whales from the Lanai! Amazing!!!
If I were to add an area of improvement, it would be to downsize to a queen-sized bed in the second bedroom. I knocked my legs on the king-sized footboard of the large bed every single day and night. In my opinion, it's way too big for the room. Plus when we had warmer weather (85 - 90 degrees) without air conditioning, the large furniture made the room stuffy.
BUT - you're in Hawaii. I hate to complain about that. What a beautiful condo. We would highly recommend.
We spent 2 weeks at this amazing condo. We walked in after a very long day of travel and were very pleased to find the condo exactly as pictured on this site. There are spectacular views of the ocean and coastline from every room. The updates that were done several years ago, as well as the decor, are very tasteful. The kitchen is well stocked and we ate many meals in the condo. The bathroom showers were luxurious and included shampoo and body wash dispensers.
We loved sitting on the lanai with a cup of coffee or glass of wine listening to Hawaiian music and watching for whales.
This condo is very convenient for exploring the spectacular north shore beaches. We also enjoyed the unique town of Hanalei with its cute shops and restaurants.
We found David's check-in information and "mini travelogue" very helpful in planning our stay. The Princeville streets are not well lit and it is difficult to read street signs. Our Garmin did not work on Kauai.
The condo is very comfortable. It has a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable seating areas, and two bedrooms with king-sized beds. Bathrooms are modern and roomy. The owner has done a wonderful job of providing information to help make your stay interesting and fun. Be sure to bring good binoculars in order to watch the whales, turtles, and birds from the lanai. In January it was quite amazing.
We had one glitch (with the washer). The owner got back to us right away with information and a repair person.
We had a great stay here. The moment you walk in the door you know you've made the right decision as the ocean is there to great you. The location was perfect, close to everything yet tucked away so it was nice and quiet when it mattered. Host was excellent at instructions on the unit plus things to do around town. All in all very happy with the choice. Would definitely use this place again.
The week spent in this condo was more than we expected. This condo was clean, well cared for, and very relaxing, The sunrise at 6:30am daily was worth waking up to see from my bed each day. The soothing waves of the ocean outside the window, sent me off to sleep each night. Everything you might need is available for use in this condo, from dishes, small kitchen appliances, bedding, puzzles to beach towels, and chairs, washer, dryer and umbrellas. Attention to detail is very visible in this condo.
Thank you Dave for helping to make our holiday so much more enjoyable and relaxing.
We enjoyed our stay so much. What a relaxing place to stay. The proximity to the town and the views from the condo are perfect. We saw whales while sitting on the lanai. Lots of beaches, hiking and things to do are nearby. We hope to stay at David and Cate's condo again sometime in the future. Overall top notch!
