Our 'Hala Hale' is a one bedroom, bungalow-style condo is located in the Princeville Resort community.

The kitchen also has a microwave/convection oven combination, small refrigerator, toaster, blender, croc pot, coffee pot, electric skillet and more. The bedroom has a queen sized bed and unlike most one bedroom studios in the area, the bedroom is separated with walls from the living room, dining area and entry to allow for privacy. The condo is further outfitted with a large bathroom, a dining table that seats three, a sleeper sofa (queen), cable TV + Free streaming Netflix, Wifi and CD player/iPod doc/MP3 compatible stereo.
Tastefully designed, this upper story, bright and airy, 1 bedroom condo has a balcony where you can wake with the warm morning sunshine and views of the lush Java plum trees lining the pathway to Anini Beach right off your balcony (there is a peek of ocean view as well). This charming condo borders a beautiful golf course and offers privacy from other units. You can also take a dip in the pool which is just out the front door! Within a 5-minute walk you can access the primary grocery store on the North Shore, multiple cafés, restaurants, shops, post office, golf courses, banks and ATM’s as well as the local bus line. A short walk down the path in front of the condo will lead you to Anini Beach, with excellent snorkeling and swimming. Beautiful Hanalei Bay is only 5 min. away by car. A great place to walk, swim, boogie board or enjoy surfing from beginner to advanced abilities.
Paniolo Condominium Complex: The Paniolo Condominium complex is located in Princeville, a quiet resort community that is home to the Makai and famed Prince golf courses. Princeville is located on a bluff overlooking Hanalei Bay and offers spectacular views of Hanalei Bay and of the famous “Bali Hai” ridge that was made famous by the movie South Pacific. Princeville’s roads have many unpleasant speed bumps, yet Paniolo is the ONLY complex perfectly situated to avoid these monsters! Paniolo is a 5-minute walk from Princeville center where any shopping, eating or business can be accomplished. Hop on the Anini beach trail to get some exercise on your uncrowded path towards the beach. The condo is located perfectly for anyone who would prefer not to have to drive, with plenty to see and do on foot.
Just A Few Minutes Away: Start your morning with a 5-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 cup of 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. Kaua'i'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 deepen your cultural appreciation while witnessing the preservation efforts of the awe inspiring, Limahuli Garden. The list goes further, 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.

About Lani and Sky
Hi! We are Sky and Lani 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 Condo 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. Princeville is filled with circuitous streets with major speed bumps that take a toll on island car. Paniolo is perfectly situated in a prime spot where we are able to avoid these confusing and speed bump littered roads. When driving into the Princeville community the Paniolo complex is the first group of buildings you will pass making it quick, easy to find and allowing you freedom from the Princeville traffic!
What makes this Condo unique
Paniolo #211 is positioned strategically to be quiet. 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, and the waves on Anini beach are all thats heard. A quiet and peaceful unit this is!

We had a great stay and we enjoyed Princeville.
Thank you for the review Kent! :)
We really appreciate it, and we are happy you enjoyed your time on Kauai!
Warm Alohas and big hugs,
Lani and Sky
Excellent stay in a cozy place
Our stay was most excellent. For being in a multi-unit property, there's actually a decent amount of privacy on the second floor. Our back patio looked out on trees, so we didn't feel like folks could look right in on us. Sky and Lani had a great binder with local recommendations. We were able to walk down to the shopping center for morning coffee and snacks, and a lot was available nearby. On this island, there's not a lot of difficulty getting around, and we really had no problems! Thanks you two for a most excellent stay!
We are so happy you enjoyed your time in the condo!
We appreciate the review very much, and we hope your travels were absolutely amazing!
Big hugs and lots of aloha,
Sky and Lani

Very nice and peaceful condo
Really liked the space. It was close to a few stores and restaurants as well as a short walk to Anini Beach. You could hear a lot of the birds and bugs chirping at night which was relaxing for me.
Very clean, everything was in excellent working order, the bed was comfortable.
The location is quiet, full of flowers and beautiful landscaping. Perfect location. The condo had quality pots and pans, quality blender, coffee pot and toaster. Refrigerator was compact but fit all our food and I cooked every day.
We are so happy your time in the condo was great, and we really appreciate the review!
We trust your back is healing up nicely, and we hope the sun and sand helped the healing process for you. ;)
Lani and Sky
Everything we needed was here. There's no A/C (many places on the island don't have A/C) but that wasn't an issue; the high ceilings, many windows, and fans kept plenty of good airflow; we even got a bit chilly at night. The extra amenities/equipment available for use were really helpful. Plenty of shops nearby (there's a Foodland member card that comes with the place, definitely use it as it'll save you money). Very comfy and relaxing, would stay again for sure.
Many key amenities are within walking distance (grocery, post office, eateries, library, bus stop, shops) and every one of the amazing North Shore scenic attractions can be accessed within minutes. This bungalow-style, one bedroom condo, is fully outfitted with a kitchenette, making it easy to bring groceries home to make your meals affordable. Located on the second floor with high ceilings, the condo takes advantage of the reliable trade winds keeping it cool and airy. Your ideal private home to unwind and feel away from everything, yet conveniently close to all the wonderful adventures the North Shore has to offer.
From your condo you can view the surrounding mountains and cascading waterfalls, while the Princeville community has miles of trails to walk or run for you to take in even more of these views. There are many gems stashed nearby as well (all just minutes away): take a dip in Queen's Bath, look for whales from the Princeville bluffs or spot turtles while exploring the rocky shore. Snorkel at Hideaways beach, surf Hideaways break or take the path to Anini beach (that passes right by the condo) for a pleasant walk to discover a sweet shoreline with calm protected waters. Venture further and find Anini Beach Park, where you can swim/snorkel (turtles frequent here) in a calm lagoon. Beyond Princeville on the North Shore, you can surf at world class surf spots, swim, snorkel or beachcomb at countless pristine beaches, visit a National Botanical Garden, find caves, experience a luau, browse great local shops and even pick up some locally grown fruits and vegies at one of the local farmer's markets.
