About the property

Bright, Open & Spacious Condo w/ Bedroom loft


This is a clean, bright and spacious condo with bedroom loft in Princeville! We are very excited to be offering this sweet space.

We provide you with everything you need and in good quality, making it easy to take advantage of all the spectacular wonders of the North Shore, which are all within minutes of this prime location.

This one bedroom loft, bungalow-style condo is located in the Princeville Resort community. Newly remodeled, the condo has nearly every amenity. The condo has a beautiful view of the Prince Golf Course and a bit of ocean as well, right on the Anini Beach path (1/2 mile with steep hill, great for your morning workout). The kitchen is fully stocked and ready to go, so all you need is great local produce from one of the many farmers markets and you're good to go!

The bedroom loft has a California King sized bed, equipped with 4 inches of dreamy memory foam for ultimate comfort. The condo is further outfitted with a large bathroom, a dining table that seats four, a comfortable sleeper sofa (queen), a 42' flat screen HD TV with cable + Free streaming Netflix as well as Wifi and an iPod doc/MP3 compatible stereo.

Tastefully designed, this upper story, bright and airy, studio condo with loft has a balcony where you can wake with the warm morning sunshine and views of the lush trees lining the Queen Emmalani pathway to Anini Beach that is 1/2 mile away. This charming condo borders the beautiful Prince golf course and offers privacy from other units. You can also take a dip in the pool, which is just out the front door!

A half mile walk down the path in front of the condo will lead you to amazing views and to the secluded end of Anini Beach (there is a steep hill for the final stretch). Anini Beach is known as one of the safest beaches on Kauai, with excellent snorkeling and swimming (it is also a short drive by car). FYI, Anini has the longest barrier reef in the state of Hawaii! This reef breaks all the waves, leaving very safe and shallow water for beginners or those that like to float around in calm water.

If you head the other direction from the condo, within a very short walk (5-10 min), you will find the Princeville Shopping Center. Here you will also find the primary grocery store on the North Shore (Foodland) as well as Lappert's ice cream, shave ice, a coffee shop, boutique stores, multiple restaurants, live music, a yoga studio, a post office, banks/ATMs, a library and bus stop. As mentioned, this condo is situated on a quiet golf course, but at the same time it is the most nearby condo to these amenities, making it an easy and enjoyable walk. You simply hop on the Anini Beach Pathway (heading towards the mountains), cross the road and walk through the beautiful Princeville Park and you're there. It's the perfect location! From the condo, you can take a right to get to the shopping center, or a left to find Anini Beach! The condo is ideal for anyone who would prefer not to drive, with plenty to see and do on foot.

The greater Princeville area is a quiet resort community located on a bluff overlooking Hanalei Bay and offers spectacular views of Hanalei Bay and of the famous “Bali Hai” ridge that earned its fame from the movie South Pacific. For golf lovers it is also home to the Makai and renown Prince golf courses.

Beautiful Hanalei Bay is only 5 minutes away by car. A beautiful place to walk, swim, boogie board or enjoy surfing from beginner to advanced abilities.

Kilauea, with it's scenic lighthouse and wonderful bakery, restaurants and shops is only 15 minutes away by car and of course your choices for nearby beautiful beaches are endless in either direction

More In the neighborhood (Just A Few Minutes Away by foot):

Start your morning with a 10-15 minute walk down the Anini Beach Path (or down Wyllie Rd) to the Westin where you can start your morning with a cup of freshly brewed Starbucks coffee. The Princeville center also has great options for breakfast, coffee and smoothies.

The Magical North Shore:

The North Shore of Kaua'i is ideal for spectacular adventure and tropical escape. Kauai's dramatic landscape has been carved for centuries by water and the island's stunning scenery and misty cliffs are punctuated by cascading waterfalls with countless breathtaking vistas. The adventures available to you on this Garden Isle are endless; trek the Kalalau trail and be humbled by the deep ancient valleys, wash your cares away under a waterfall, take a surf lesson in beautiful Hanalei Bay, explore a river on a kayak or take a bird's eye tour of the island by helicopter. Get a thrill while checking out the sights from a zip line, ride a horse in the backcountry, or take an awe inspiring walk around Limahuli Garden and Preserve. The list goes on, with opportunities to visit sacred Hawaiian ruins, walk along white sandy beaches, take a boat down the unforgettable Na Pali coast, body surf in playful waves, snorkel with sea turtles or test your balance on a stand-up paddleboard. Find your own dream adventure, relax and take in the wonder of this magical island.

We are proud and excited to be offering this beautiful condo to travelers wishing for an affordable place in paradise to call home. Come, enjoy and Play!!

About Lani and Sky

Hi! Our names are Lani and Sky and we graciously welcome you to our condo!

Lani has lived on Kauai for much of her life, and was born and raised near Tunnels Beach on the North Shore. Life adventures beyond the islands however, eventually brought her to the mainland and abroad. She spent her high school days in Santa Cruz California before turning interests towards colder climates and getting into skiing. Between travels abroad, Lani worked primarily in outdoor industries for the better part of a decade, mostly kayaking and skiing and living in amazing rural towns. One of her favorite of those towns was Jackson Hole Wyoming, where she lived for several years before moving back to Kauai.

Coincidentally, Sky was born and raised in Jackson Wyoming where he became an avid snowboarder in the winter, fly fisherman in the summer and world traveller whenever possible in between. Despite his mountain upbringing, Sky has always been a and a waterman and was inevitably called to a warmer climate.

Eventually island life, with its enticing warm water and fragrant trade winds beckoned both of us individually to the Garden Island of Kauai where we met in 2011. We've found a happy match as we are both very active and love to explore and laugh. We've found our perfect paradise here on Kauai and wouldn't want to live anywhere else!

As a team we really enjoy sharing what we love about Kauai with our guests and offer our local knowledge and recommendations in addition to providing exceptional quality accommodation. We want to ensure that our guests have as much fun and as little worries as possible on their visits to Kauai.

Lani and Sky purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Lani and Sky chose Princeville

Paniolo is great for several significant reasons. One of the biggest is the convenience of the location. The condo is close to the Princeville entrance so it provides easy access to your island adventures as well as the nearby amenities of the Princeville shopping area. On a related note, Princeville is filled with circuitous streets with many speed bumps, but Paniolo is perfectly situated in a prime spot closer to the entrance of Princeville that allows you to avoid these buggers. When driving into the Princeville community, the Paniolo complex is the first group of buildings you will pass making it quick and easy to find.

What makes this apartment unique

Our Bamboo Bungalow is positioned strategically in the quietest depths of the Paniolo condo complex, farthest from any road and closest to bordering green belt. Some faint sounds of the cars during the day can be heard, but mostly the sounds of bird songs, warm trade winds through the Java Plum trees. At night it's the crickets and the waves of Anini beach that are heard. This is a quiet and peaceful unit!

The ideal place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo is better than we ever expected. What a delightful place! It is so private and scenic and accessible to everything, especially on the North Shore. The place was clean and bright and equipped with everything you could possibly need. They even had a great information guide that helped us not miss out on anything. We've never had a Hawaiian rental that was so enjoyable and comfortable, no bug issues or problems even with quite a bit of rain. We are going to make this a yearly event!

This cute condo is better in person than in the pictures. They thought of everything! There are beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels and a cooler. The condo has a kitchen, washer and dryer, comfy beds, large bathroom and plenty of room to stretch out. I worried about my 2 teens spending to much close time with each other and with the loft they had some separate space. After a long day of exploring it felt like a home we were coming to vs. a small hotel room. The neighbors are nice and the community felt very safe. We would absolutely stay here again, it was perfect!! Can't say enough wonderful things about this place Lani and Sky are quick to reply to any message they send you and they have a binder with so much helpful information to help with your stay! Thank you for sharing your place with us!

Nice quiet place with cool loft.

  • 5 of 5

Met the cleaning person and she was very helpful and great talk to. Cute loft that gets warm during the day but cools off very nicely at night (we were there in early October). We both hit our heads on the rafters in the loft (I’m 6’1, wife is 5’2), but once you get used to the spot it’s no big deal.

But the location is a quick walk to the supermarket, or an easy drive to the north shore areas (Ke’e Beach for example).

Parking was easy and pool is right outside. Owners were very responsive to texts and VRBO messages.

Amazing - would return anytime

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Bamboo Bungalow. It was very central for all the activities done on the North Shore. We had access to an information guide put together by the owners that was very useful. A perfect place for a getaway with the comfort of home.
