Overview

Kauai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Spectacular, awesome, and stunning are just some of the comments made by guests to describe the view from this totally private corner unit. D3 at Sealodge is located in the building closest to the corner edge of the bluff so you get both ocean and inlet views. With no buildings in site, it feels like you are on the edge of the bluff all by yourself. Enjoy panoramic views of whitewater waves, Kileauea lighthouse, Anini Beach and Humpback whales on their winter migration. Especially popular with honeymooners, this prime first floor end unit has 180 degree views from all windows (living, dining, lanai and bedroom). At night get lulled to sleep by the crashing waves below and in the morning enjoy spectacular sunrises and the Layton Albatross as they glide along the thermal winds from the bluff. The balmy tradewinds and the smell of plumeria and blooming flowers is the beginning of beautiful memories in paradise.

The condo is situated so that you view wonderful sunrises from all the windows. This also means that the sun passes overhead by noon so you don't have any afternoon sun coming in and heating up any of the rooms. The lanai is also sheltered just enough so you get just a gentle breeze as you sit outside and take in the magic of the scenery around you.

Recent $30,000 remodel. Upgrade includes all kitchen cupboards, counter and appliances including new full-sized washer and dryer. A new 42 inch LCD flat screen TV with a HD cable in the living room provides an amazing picture plus the DVR allows you to record shows and movies to watch later. New tile in entry, kitchen and bath, all window coverings, modern couch and loveseat with large accent rug and new chairs in the alcove. Also, king Beautyrest pillow top mattress, lanai furniture, 27' LCD for the bedroom, coffee table, dining chairs, pots & pans, all bedding & pillows, glasses, towels, etc. Time Warner wireless high speed internet plus digital phone for free local and long distance calls. Kitchen also includes blender, mixer, electric juicer, mini food processor, tea kettle plus spices, various sugars, coffee filters, various oils and salt & pepper. Also provided is paper towels, laundry soap, bar soap and shampoo. For indoor activities there are books, games, DVD, VCR, CD player and binoculars for Humpback whales passing by or turtles swimming near the reef. For outdoor activities, there are beach chairs, towels, mats, cooler, beach umbrella and various snorkeling gear.

Enjoy the upscale resort area of Princeville with its two Championship golf courses, miles of foot paths, restaurants and shopping including a large Foodland. Sealodge has a prime location at the end of Kamehameha road with plenty of free parking. Eat at numerous nearby restaurants or fix a meal in the fully equipped kitchen in your condo. Sealodge promises pure relaxation and comfort.

Kauai's dramatic North Shore is an enchanting setting full of rugged mountains, heavenly beaches and spectacular sea cliffs. You'll be amazed at how much beauty can be found in just one area of Kauai. A number of spectacular beaches are nearby including Hideaways, Anini, Hanalei Bay, Ke'e, Secret Beach and Tunnels where the snorkeling is amazing.

For adventure take a helicopter ride from the Princeville airport and see where many movies have been shot including Jurassic Park and Pirates of the Caribbean. At Princeville Ranch take a horseback ride to beautiful waterfalls. Other North Shore activities include kayaking, ziplining, hiking and you can also learn about native plants and see scenic views at Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens or at the 17-acre Lumahuli Gardens, part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden.

Enjoy the many fine restaurants right in Princeville or venture into Hanalei to find many more exceptional places to dine. Simply unwinding and relaxing in this lush tropical paradise are the best qualities of Kauai. The guest book in the condo has many more suggestions of things to do, places to dine and activities that our guests enjoyed but every entry starts with 'What a view'! Your dream vacation awaits with memories you'll treasure forever.

About Linda Dunham

The condo is owned by myself, Linda Dunham, my sister Judy, my brother Ron and his wife Doreen. We originally bought the property as an investment, but we all love Hawaii and that amazing view so it will most likely stay in the family for a long time. Ron and Doreen's son Dan was married in Maui this past May but honeymooned in Princeville. It was their first stay in the condo and they immediately called to say 'please don't ever sell it, we love it!' I feel the same way as do the guests that stay there.

Linda Dunham purchased this condo in 2000

Why Linda Dunham chose Kauai

My sister and I went shopping for condos in 2000. In Maui we saw partial ocean views, the Big Island had some units closer to the ocean but all kind of run together off of one highway. We hit Poipu for the afternoon sun which was blazing in and heating up most of the condos also making it hard to even watch the sunset. We arrived at Sealodge and once we sat in the condo and she opened all the blinds we both went 'wow' and since luckily we were the first to view it, we said do not put the lockbox on, we want it. Some people who have stayed there have even asked us to let them know if we ever want to sell it, but I think not. The North Shore has such beautiful beaches, wonderful restaurants and a small town charm. Kauai being the 'garden isle' is so lush and tropical that it truly is paradise. In the condo, the tradewinds blowing and the sound of the waves below is so relaxing and peaceful you almost don't want to venture out.

What makes this condo unique

Sealodge D3 is located on the ground floor in the building located closest to the bluff and the ocean so it is like you are all by yourselves. The lanai faces only inlet and ocean. The Hawaiian geese like to stroll by in the morning and several other species of birds are flying around or on the bluff. The tradewinds are almost always blowing and the sunrises are spectacular. In the condo the back wall is all mirror so anywhere you look you see the ocean. Nobody has ever stayed there without saying 'what a view!'.

Spectacular View -- The Best!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the North Shore and our home base for five nights before heading to the East Side of Kauai. We did the Kalalau Trail (two miles in and two miles out) the day after we arrived. The path is difficult (rocky and muddy) but so worth it for the views. Definitely bring walking sticks. We went to all the secluded beaches (the most beautiful beaches ever), and the hikes again are muddy and some places steep. The easier beaches to get to are Tunnels, Anini and Hanalei Bay. The secluded ones are a 15 to 20 minute hike. Those beaches are Hideaway Beach (snorkeling great there), Queen’s Bath, and Secret Beach. The small village of Hanalei has cute shops, market, and great restaurants (Bar Acuda was one we really enjoyed). Be sure to check out the Lighthouse and Limahuli Garden & Preserve. So much to do on the North Shore. We were happy we rented Linda’s condo to explore the area before we went East on the Island. Thanks Linda, for your quick response time and all the information. Love Kauai!!

FYI, be sure to check out the South Beaches (they are just as spectacular), Waimea Canyon, Koke’e State Park, Wailua Falls, Lydgate Beaches/Park while on the Island. We spent a total of 12 days, and hated to leave. Lots more to explore! It made it convenient staying on the East Side to explore and hike the South Shore and canyon.

Great North Shore Location

  • 5 of 5

This unit delivers beautiful cliff-side views and a convenient location for all North Shore activities. We enjoyed the short hike down to the secluded, Sealodge beach and the short drives to Hanalei Bay and points beyond (e.g., Ke'e beach and the Kalalau Trail). The unit itself, while not very modern, is clean, comfortable, and well appointed.

Breathtaking amazing view, like no other!!!

  • 5 of 5

I simply cannot find the adequate words to describe how amazingly beautiful the view is from this unit!!! As soon as you walk in the door, your view is nothing but the ocean, on all sides of you! I thought about chaining myself to the bench right by the edge of the bluff, HAHA! I didn't want to leave and will absolutely stay here when I return. The condo itself is comfy and has all things you'll need for a comfortable stay. The location is perfect, right in Princeville and a quick 3 minute drive to the Princeville shopping center. Bought all my groceries at the Foodland there, but there are definitely less expensive places for groceries.... when you first land, I would definitely shop at Wal-Mart for groceries. But lots of cute and fun shops in Princeville. And Lappert's ice cream! If you're like me and location and view are your top priorities in choosing a condo, then you must book this unit. Love, love, love! Owner also easy to work with and responsive to any questions I had.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

If you are like me, you have read many reviews looking for just the right place....well stop right now and rent this condo, you wont regret it. Before leaving on our trip the communication from Linda was great and we received perfect instructions that included how to access the condo and anything you need to know about the local attractions. One thing you must understand, you are not staying at a hotel resort, there will be no room service, air conditioning, or fine furnishings, but once you walk in the front door of the condo and see the view, you will care less. You wont find this view or this price at any hotel resort. Thanks Linda and we are already looking forward to returning to Kauai. Best trip we have ever taken!

We'll see this place in our dreams!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from this incredible condo, and we're already missing it! The stunning views, the sounds of the surf and the trade winds rustling through the palms, the sudden brief rain showers that blow through, the sunrises...I could go on and on. The condo is convenient to the North Shore, and is well stocked with the things you need to have an amazing vacation. One note, the telescope is no longer there. Even though that was disappointing (I had really talked it up to my husband, an avid stargazer), it didn't change our love for this place. I spoke with Linda about things that needed replacement, and she was very responsive and wonderful to work with. We will see this place in our dreams for many years to come, and we wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else on Kauai!

Wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

Linda was friendly and easy to work with. She responded to our inquiries quickly and provided us with lots of helpful information.

The unit itself was great. The views of the ocean were breathtaking! You don't see the mountains of the Napali Coast from this location like you do from the other side of the bay, but the unit is right on a bluff overlooking the water. We watched the sunrise from bed and walked around the corner to watch the beautiful sunsets every evening. The unit, although a little weather-worn, was clean and well-kept. It was well stocked with kitchen and beach supplies (including lots of towels, boogie boards, and snorkeling gear) and an in-unit washer/dryer with detergent.

The Sealodge property has a nice little pool. It is also close to a small 10 minute path down to Sealodge beach, which was a beautiful, isolated beach with decent snorkeling. The property is well-located nearby walking paths and many of the other condos/resorts in the area. It is a short drive to restaurants and shops (as all of the condos/resorts in the area are).

We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it!
