About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

MAGICAL is the only way to describe the North Shore of Kauai. The mountains, lush with foliage and laced with ribbons of waterfalls flowing through them, form a backdrop for an amazing coastline. Jagged lava rock form aquamarine pools at Queen’s Bath. Yet a couple miles down the road is Hanalei Bay a long crescent all-sand beach encircled by Puff the Magic Dragon.

Kauai, the oldest of the Hawaiian islands, has the best beaches (all public), each with its own flavor. You can snorkel, swim, shell, and windsurf at Anini Beach - body surf, boogie board, surf, and kayak at Hanalei Bay - both a short drive from Emmalani Court. From November through April watch the whales frolic with their babies. During the summer, sail out of Hanalei Bay into the amazing wet caves along the Napali Coast. Princeville has two of the best golf course in the world. Tee off at the 27-hole Makai Course (which is right outside the door) and stop at the condo for a cold one on the eight fairway of the Ocean Nine; or drive five minutes to the challenging Prince Course, then enjoy any of the spa services offered at the Princeville Spa. If you prefer a more private location to relax, come back to Emmalani Court to swim in the pool, soak in the hot-tub or relax in your personal jetted tub in your own bathroom. Kauai is an outdoor lover’s paradise and Emmalani Court is the perfect home away from home.

We chose Emmalani Court because it is a small complex, very well maintained, quiet, and located within walking distance of Princeville’s fine restaurants, the best beaches, tennis, and (of course) golf. This is a first floor unit so there are no stairs to climb. The living room has floor to ceiling picture windows overlooking the 8th hole of the Makai Golf Course. The lanai has distant ocean views. Features that set Emmalani Court apart from others are its nine foot ceilings, French doors, pocket doors, and covered parking. There is a large air conditioner in the living room and both bedrooms, and ceiling fans in every room. The master bedroom has one king-size bed and the second bedroom has twin beds. There is also a queen-size air bed, with appropriate linens, for additional sleeping accommodations. The heated pool area is less than a minute stroll from our unit and has a sitting ledge, a hot tub, a gas grill and bathrooms. In addition to the listed amenities, we equipped our Condo with beach chairs, mats, and towels for your perfect day at the beach.

Wake up early and watch the sun rise from the lanai with a fresh mug of kona coffee and some island fruit. For a special night, walk over to the Princeville Hotel, have a drink in the living room, or dinner overlooking Bali Hai and watch the sun set. You can also take in a luau or splurge at one of the extraordinary restaurants at a St. Regis, a short walk away. However, you may just prefer (as I do) to shop the open markets for produce, throw some fish, steak, or chicken on the grill and have one of the most amazing meals by the pool or bring it back to your private lanai.

We take great pride in our second home on Kauai and would love to share the magic with you.

Our "Home away from Home"

  • 5 of 5

We just celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary and our fourth or fifth stay in this unit. We enjoy returning each year to this homey, well appointed unit. The neighbors are great, and the small size of the complex makes it feel like we are living here, not visiting. The location is on a fairway and has great views. Most impressive is that we regularly see endangered birds flying, nesting and walking around as if they own the place. If you've never seen an albatross in flight, you've really missed something. 5 minute walk to overlook the ocean, fine restaurants within 10 miles, and as yet uncrowded beaches in certain parts of the North shore. We've already reserved for a return visit next year.

We really needed a family vacation and had a wonderful time while we were there. WE WILL RETURN! BEST ISLAND, BEST CONDO, and BEST VACATION EVER!!!!! P.S.

A slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Family of four adults. Loved every minute of our stay. Owner was extremely accommodating. Really enjoyed the morning and evening rounds of the local bird population. Australian and western cardinals, and a hen. Most amazing sunsets just walking down the eight fairway, past the mother and fledgling Albatrosses (!). Extremely comfortable home.

Princeville Area At It's Best - Amazing Unit and Location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from nearly two weeks in this unit. It is truly well designed with everything available to help our vacation be relaxing and perfect. Many birds visited us for breakfast in the lanai every morning and several native birds and albatross are nesting close by. The scenery was amazing and we watched some very high surf as well as seeing beautiful sunsets over "Bali Hi" and sunrises. Make sure to drive to the end of North Shore stopping at beaches along the way. Also, Kilauea Light House is worth a visit. There are many gorgeous beaches in the area.

This unit is on the edge of the Makai Golf Course (near 7th and 8th holes) and a wonderful place for everyone - NOT just golfers. The walk to the cliffs for sunsets is only a couple of minutes and the St. Regis Hotel is less than ten minutes. Wonderful location but you must have a car. There is a lovely Farmers Market in Hanalei on Saturday mornings - a must do to stock up on local produce.

The owners are easy to work with and readily got us help for some tv/internet problems. The wifi is wonderful since some cell phone services are a bit sketchy. Overall, this is by far the best place we have stayed and hope to return before too long. We were very comfortable and really enjoyed our stay.
