Oceanfront Condominium in Princeville, Kauai Totally Updated

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,085 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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.

Relaxing and centrally located to events on Northshore Kauai

  • 5 of 5

This has been the best accommodation we have stayed in. It was clean and well stocked with every thing needed in the kitchen. It is easy to keep clean. We lived on the covered deck. Can't wait to come back again.

We had a wonderful stay in Princeville!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect after coming back from a long hike or beach day. It worked perfectly as we traveled as 2 couples. We were located close to everything on the north shore. Both king beds were very comfortable, washrooms were immaculate, and literally everything we needed was provided. The laundry amenities were a bonus and the kitchen is very well stocked with supplies. The view was absolutely breathtaking every morning - definitely something we’re already missing. There was nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. Would definitely recommend this place!

Unbelievable View!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 5 days. The highlight was its location - the view of the ocean from both bedrooms and the lanai (balcony) was breathtaking! If you decide to book this unit during the winter months (Dec - Apr), make sure you bring your binoculars! We saw whale activity everyday - spouting, showing their fins and tails, and jumping head-first out of the ocean! There were also lots of bird sightings, both near and far. At night, the sky was full of stars shining brightly, visible because there was very little light in the area.

The condo was clean and well-maintained. It had relatively new appliances and virtually everything you would need for the kitchen and bathroom. There were also lots of outdoor equipment such as beach umbrellas and chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards and beach towels.

We texted Dave Gallacher several times with questions and he was always very responsive.

We will definitely return and highly recommend this unit - Ali'i Kai Building 4, unit 403.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect home for our couples vaca (4 adults). It is nestled atop the cliffs in a safe and well kept development. The views from the porch and both bedrooms are fantastic. And the stars are amazing at night as there is not much light around. The apartment was clean and completely stocked with everything we needed - cookware, towels, coolers, shampoo etc. The beds were large and comfy. The walls were thick so we couldn't hear anything from one bedroom to the next :)

I would definitely recommend this place. The only downside was that most of the activities we wanted to do were on the west, east and south shores, so it was a bit of a drive everyday, but it was totally worth it to come home to such a cozy apartment at the end of the day.

David was easy to get in touch with and accommodating when we asked for a later checkout time. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Updated Princeville Waterfront Condo - Great Stay - Great Owners - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific 6 day stay over Christmas in this condo (family of 4). It is right within the same large neighborhood complex as the St Regis Hotel and Wyndham Bali Hai hotels/villas. On the waterfront with gorgeous views, but beach not really accessible except for the very brave due to steep hill/cliff down to water and rough surf (at least in winter). We saw whales spouting every day from the lanai! Nice beaches a very short drive away. We did not attempt to walk to any. A grocery store, shave ice, ice cream and other stores are right outside the complex - no more than 5 minutes away. About 10 min into Hanalei and Hanalei Beach and about 10 min to Kilauea where there is a gorgeous lighthouse/lookout and a botanical garden plus some more restaurants. Shorter even to Anini Beach which is great for kids (protected by a reef). Condo itself is nicely furnished and very clean with plenty of dishware, pots/pans, etc if you want to cook in, plus coffee maker and dishwasher/microwave. No air conditioning but air flow was great and they had plenty of fans stationed in the various rooms (we didn't need them). We had family staying in another unit that had not been updated and there was a huge difference between this one and theirs. We were easily able to host dinner for 8. Owners were terrific with quick response to our inquiry about renting and provided a guide with many suggestions and helpful tips as well as warnings about unsafe areas due to high surf/currents, etc. There were some basic supplies provided such as tp, kleenex, a roll of paper towel, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, plus a few boogie boards, 4 beach chairs, several coolers, some snorkel equipment and several beach mats. Would highly recommend renting this condo! We had no problems whatsoever. Hope to visit again someday!

Ocean paradise

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful fully renovated and well stocked ocean front unit. Great location and excellent value for the nightly rate:

North Shore has lots to do although the weather can be cloudy and more rainy than other parts of Island.......

We would return at this location anytime. Todd

About David Gallacher

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

Why David Gallacher chose Princeville

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.
