Condo, 2 Bedrooms / 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Pali Ke Kua #215 is located on the bluff overlooking the World's Best Beach by several publications. Miles of sandy beach and gentle waves make it a perfect place to take the kids boogie boarding or learn to surf. Pali Ke Kua is also very close to two outstanding golf courses - The Princeville Course and the newly remodeled Makai Course.

Stunning View and Not much else
We have stayed several times at Pali Kai Kua and this stay has convinced us that this complex is old and dated and the homeowners put little effort into keeping properties up to date. When we arrived the floors appeared not to have been swept in a week. We had to sweep the front entrance, living room and kitchen area for the amount of bugs and litter. The kitchen counters and appliances had obviously not been cleaned well because they were sticky and the counters were dirty. We spent time wiping everything down. While the ocean view was incredible, the fact that there were broken blinds, broken drawer in kitchen and the A/C was joke (we had to leave the front door open to get air circulation which of course, led to more bugs flying in), made us longing for home within a few days of the stay. It was extremely disappointing and frankly, we feel we should get part of our cleaning deposit back for having to clean the place before we could even settle in. If we return to the island, will definitely stay at a complex that is much more up to date and where the homeowners put some money into keeping their place up to date as well.
We're so happy you enjoyed the ocean view, but so very sorry that you encountered the deficiencies. This is the first we've heard about any of them. We wish you would have contacted us immediately as we would have been happy to send housekeeping and maintenance to get all these issues taken care of for you right away. We do very much appreciate you sharing your experience as we value all comments that will help us improve our guests' experience.
This was such a great find and perfect for my family! We loved the location, which was a short drive to Hanalei and close to beaches and amenities.
There was the perfect amount of space for my family of four, with the kids taking the big bedroom and having their own, large beds to avoid arguments. The A/C units were nice for fighting the heat and humidity at night, although they were super loud.
The view from the lanai was amazing. We saw a lot of amazing views on Kauai, and this view made that list. It was great for watching the sunset over the ocean. As an aside, the AMA restaurant in Hanalei had a beautiful mountain backdrop and I highly recommend it!
I would absolutely stay here again. It was pretty expensive, but worth it for all of the benefits!
Great location but interior of unit leaves a lot to be desired
Property is furnished as cheaply as possible and decor is entirely lacking. Big dark gray sectional seating unit is practical but should at least have some colorful pillows. It is very dreary. Window shades need to be replaced.......they don't work properly and multiple slats are missing or turned in the wrong direction. There are not enough plates, bowls, or silverware . When you are paying premium prices, you expect more than is provided here. The air conditioners are a big bonus and the only reason I booked this property.
We're so happy you enjoyed the location but sorry about the deficiencies you noted. We take all comments seriously and will get these issue remedied. Thank you very much for the suggestions. Mahalo! Ben
Heaven On Earth
We (2couples) celebrated 30 yrs. and 15 yrs. anniversaries here. This is great condo with pretty much anything and everything you could need. The views from the balcony are breath-taking as well as the surrounding area. We had planned this for quite some time and it couldn’t have been better!
Had a wonderful time and enjoyed the beautiful views from this condo every day!!
The condo was in a great location; short walk (1 mile) to hideaway beach, short walk to queen's bath; pizza pub right across the street with great food, close to princeville center (grocery/shops/food court). The rooms/beds were comfy, nothing beats falling asleep to the sounds of gentle rain and the ocean. The views were spectacular; the patio was large enough for all 6 of us to enjoy the sunrise/sunsets. All the groundskeepers were super friendly. We found the beach items exceedingly helpful (chairs, boogie boards, youth life jacket, bamboo mat); cooking supplies were adequate; ice packs and cooler also useful, all you need to bring to this place is some rum!
