About Tamara Kelich

We love sitting on the lanai and watching the whales jump and the beautiful sunsets. Our condo is a premium location which is in building 9 which is ocean bluff frontagae. This allows you privacy and a continuous ocean view.

Why Tamara Kelich chose Kauai

We came to the island of Kauai specifically to the Cliffs on a timeshare trade. We fell in love with the simplicity and beauty of the island. The Cliffs is the only resort with the most acreage per unit which means you aren't squished in an apartment like building while on a beautiful island. Our unit is located in an amazing setting, with nothing between you and the ocean except a well manicured lawn. We love watching the whales from the lanai and with the bar height patio set, you can see forever. Our favorite trips are bicycling around the neighborhoods to spot the Albatross having their babies, and of course going to the ocean for paddle boarding and swimming. The Cliffs have first class remodeled pools and spas and offer the luxury of doing everything or very little.

What makes this condo unique

All the beaches are open to the public and the restaurants are amazing. One of our favorite restaurants is the Hanalei Gourmet which is 10 minutes down the road in Hanalei. We love to go to the farmers market to buy fresh vegetables and then to the fish market at the Dolphin Restaurant.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We saw dolphins, turtles ,whales, and a seal. Rafted on the Napali Coast and hiked to the waterfalls.

"Thanks for letting us stay at this beautiful place with a beautiful view. It was perfect for our family!"

OCEAN VIEWS! NOTHING BUT GRASS BETWEEN YOU AND THE OCEAN! Don't stay in a condo that feels like an apartment. Amazing ocean bluff location, it doesn't get better than this. The trade winds blow right through this vacation spot. Sleep with the sound of the waves washing up to the shoreline.


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Beautiful ocean view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 friends and it suited us fine. The lower bed room that had a wall bed was comfortable and the room had an amazing view. We used the upstairs living room as our common area and that worked just fine for us. The house was well stocked with pantry items and dishes, towels etc, was sufficient. Thanks Tamara for sharing your home with us. We enjoyed it very much.

Paradise in Princeville

  • 5 of 5

The unit is located at "The Cliffs in Princeville" (google it for more info) and it is paradise! We were a group of 4 adults and 4 kids and we fit very comfortably into the 4 bedrooms.


1. Unbelievable views from the unit. There is only a big open lawn between the lanai and the water...and we saw whales jumping every day.

2. Unit has lots of space and is well appointed / updated with everything you could need (lots of towels, washer / dryer...even a locker FULL of beach gear, umbrellas, golf clubs etc etc etc).

3. Free parking

4. Shared grills (in excellent shape) overlooking the water

5. Resort has great amenities and helpful staff (nice pool with hot tub, tennis, shuffleboard, playground, putting green)

6. Very quiet

7. Tamara (owner) is on the island and is VERY quick to respond to any of your needs (not that we had any major problems)

8. Did I mention the views?? The pictures on website do not do it justice.

9. Lots of amazing beaches nearby (by car)...and 5 min drive to Hanalei, which was our favorite town on the island (great farmers market once per week, restaurants, bars, beach, and excellent weekly luau at Tahiti Nui)

10. Great paths for walking / jogging


1. If you want to explore the south shore of Kauai a lot it is a real pain to drive there from Princeville as the traffic in Kapa'a is HORRIBLE...takes 90-120 minutes to drive to Poipu depending on time of day

2. There is a steep cliff at edge of property going down to the water that is not fenced if you have toddlers you'll want to watch them closely

3. Twin beds in the bedroom in basement are quite uncomfortable (for adults) but OK for small kids. The other 3 bedrooms have very comfortable beds.

4. Shopping (groceries, restaurants, bars) are non-existent on the property and it is about a 2 km walk to the nearest shopping you pretty much have to drive for any of that stuff.

Overall...if this place is available - snap it up - you will not regret the stay.

Not going back

  • 1 of 5

Either the owner is dishonest or the cleaning service. Two things bothered us...when we got home, we received a call from our travel insurance that we had broken the $450 vacuum cleaner at the condo. I assured them that no one in our group ever used the vacuum and it was a fraudulent claim. Who vacuums on vacation? We also left behind two items-an electric razor and a silver necklace. When we called the next day to ask if we could pay to have them shipped to us, we were told that both were gone.

There is no air conditioning which we didn't think would be a problem but what we didn't know is that both master bedrooms face the parking lot, so you can't leave the windows or curtains open due to car traffic and pedestrian traffic. It was quite warm! Kitchen cabinets and counters were overcrowded with clutter so there is no room for non refrigerated food items.

Owner's Response: Your parting comments on 10/1 were "We leave at 5:30am. We had a wonderful time. Thank you for sharing you beautiful condo" The vacuum was broken, the insurance company quoted you as never seeing it. It was in the closet, so it could not be missed. I was able to fix it on my own so thankfully I still have it and have notified the insurance company when I did. The home has a pantry with 4 shelves for dry goods. Your party left without sweeping a weeks worth of sand off the floor making me believe you really didn't see the vacuum, and food in pans on the stove and in the sink. Garbage was left behind. Although there is a housekeeping charge at the end for the next persons stay, it is expected that the home is your home away from home. As far as belongings being left, you told me of the razor which I looked for but knew nothing of a silver bracelet. These items were not found by housekeeping.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Forgot to write my review.

Awesome condo, we had a great time! Great size, we had 6 people and the space was perfect. Kitchen in the small size but you can see in the pictures. The downstair master bedroom had a funny smell, my guess was that was closed for a long time since you can pick how many bedrooms you want to rent. We just left the door open and it was fine.

Highly recommend this condo, views are amazing!

Highly Recommended, fantastic rental

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great experience staying at the Cliffs. The condo was amazing and perfect for our family, especially the children (5 adults and 2 small children). We had everything we needed and much more than we expected, from beach chairs, toys, books, games, etc. The condo was large, very clean, and had an amazing view! Tamara was extremely helpful and kind. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to have worked with Tamara and look forward to staying there again! We highly recommend this vacation rental.

fantastic unit, wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

There were 6 adults who were overwhelmed with the spacious unit and gorgeous ocean view. We had every aminity and then some. We never tired of breakfast on the lanai, greeting the day gently with sea breezes or waking early to a walk on the lawn sitting in chairs to greet the sunrise. One couple's son got engaged at sunrise (early 20's) romantic. Since we were there in July our only wish was air conditioning. The pool was wonderful and the activities desk 1st class (Ryan!).
