This incredible patio home in Mauna Kai captures the true North Shore Feeling. A full luxury remodel has made this the most beautiful condo I have ever seen. Hardwood, granite, and quality furnishings throughout. Please click on the calendar tab above to check availability, it's always up to date. I favor stays that are back to back with other stays or ones that fill gaps of any size.
This condo is in the heart of the lush Kauai north shore. A short hike down the Queen's path takes you to peaceful Anini Beach and the blue Pacific where you can safely swim or snorkel with the whole family. Calm waters and a rich underwater life make Anini beach one of the best swimming spots on Kauai. This peaceful stretch of beach is protected by the largest coral reef in Hawaii, so instead of foamy waves breaking up on the sand, you can expect a lake like atmosphere. The protective reef creates a beautiful blue lagoon, unsuited for surfing or body-boarding, but perfect for swimming. Many other close beaches provide world class scenery, surfing, boggy boarding fun and snorkeling.
Mauna Kai is located between the Prince Golf Course and the Makai Course. This location will provide you with the finest tropical golf in the world, or for some it may just be a beautiful walk and great albatross and whale watching. Morning and sunset views from the golf course and the Westin are fantastic. Mauna Kai's tropical breezes and warm waters can be your next dream vacation. Top off the day with a relaxing dip in your private hot tub at this Mauna Kai patio home. The tropical landscaping is over the top and this fall the avocado tree was dropping fruit! Fresh delicious oranges were plentiful on the tree by the pool.
Our beautiful Mauna Kai home is in a lush garden setting at the end of a quiet walkway. It's a garden level unit with four walk out patios. An incredibly remodeled and custom decorated 1500 square feet with two bedrooms allow plenty of room to relax. Some two bedroom two bath condos are only 1000 sq ft, this is really spacious, even a pack & play for the baby. It has new living room sofa and side chairs that add to the home like feeling, it isn't your typical bare bones condo designed to be indestructible. Free WIFI.
The last owner described the remodel process as a labor of love. He spared no expense in importing the highest quality materials from Bali and the far east. The quality of this Asian decor is usually reserved for private custom homes. A private hot tub off the living room and master bedroom will make the end of your day in paradise complete. The full size Maytag washer/dryer make it your home away from home. We look forward to staying there several times a year and make it feel like home, completely livable and unique.
Tile floors throughout the main floor give it that clean cool feel. The main living area, on the ground floor, stays cooler than units with second or third story living areas. There is no AC, as is the case with almost all Princeville condos and homes. I have never felt a need for it and quickly adjust to the tropical warmth. Wall to wall doors open to all four patios and lush tropical gardens.
The well equipped kitchen is remodeled with beautiful granite counter tops and custom hardwood cabinets from Bali. The new gourmet cook set and Jenn Air range provide a very functional touch. We enjoy great family meals and entertaining for friends and neighbors. The previous owner was an executive chef on a private yacht and added his personal touch.
The master bedroom has a paneled ceiling, entertainment center with new TV. The Japanese shoji screens offer privacy and soft exotic outdoor light. The spacious master bathroom has a double stone sink, full soaking bathtub and shower. The guest bedroom and bath is equally beautiful with antiques, Asian art and hardwood carvings and a nice ceiling fan. A mother of pearl translucent sink is one of the special features.
The Mauna Kai pool is the largest condo pool in Princeville, a pool where you can actually swim laps! The pool is now solar heated, which is greatly appreciated in the cooler winter months. Our condo is close to this great pool. The gazebo offers a gas grill, sink, fridge and space for a private party for 50, however it is usually empty and quiet!
A short drive will take you to Hanalei town or Hanalei Beach Park, an incredible town beach with endless sand, soft waves, wade in swimming and boogie board fun. For the more adventurous, Na Pali Coast hiking, kayaking and Secret Beach are the Ultimate! Secret Beach is a 1/2 mile of ever changing natural sand, waves and cliffs with rarely more than a handful of souls.
A short stroll to the Westin Resort gives you access to the finest luxury spa and dining comforts, without the price of the room. Or maybe just visit for coffee, drinks, excellent whale watching, or the ultimate Bali Hai sunset! Bali Hai is the north shore's canvas for the last sunset in the United States each evening. The mountain's majestic profile is the beginning of the Na Pali cliffs along the north shore of Kauai and provides a romantic backdrop for ocean cruises, helicopter flights, and spectacular hiking adventures. This is the million dollar sunset view just steps from our Mauna Kai condo in Princeville. A stay in our spacious 1500 square foot home is just what you're looking for.
The Princeville Center, 5 blocks away, provides many dining and shopping options, including the local market to stock our fully equipped kitchen. High speed WIFI or plug-in internet service. A HD LCD TV with a DVR and Netflix in the living room and the new second TV in master suite will get you through a rainy day.
Reduced rates are given for bookings that are back to back with other reservations and for those that fill holes between existing bookings. There is no minimum stay for bookings that fill a gap between two other reservations. Call or email me to discuss.
Princeville, on the north shore, is a great base to see everything Kauai has to offer. So come have a wonderful stay in Paradise.

Wow! what a time. This is a Beautiful condo. We have been using VRBO for years all over the world and this was our best vacation yet. The atmosphere is fantastic. The place is very well kept and the kitchen was clean and very functional with everything you need to cook anything you want. It is close to the road but the owner Bruce has thought of everything from full wrap around privacy drapes to Asian sliding panels in the bedroom to bamboo hanging blinds outside around the private hot tub you can have all the privacy you need and then some. It is a great location and anytime you can walk to both the grocery store and the beach (with a small hike) you have nothing to complain about. All the details were presented to us in a timely manner and we did not have to chase the owner for a single thing. As a matter of fact we called the number for the on site handyman with a question and Bruce showed up in person to answer all our needs. Now that is service. There is a reason we chose to return to this Island, because we wanted a stress free vacation, and if that is what you are interested in this is the place for you. We learned something this time with VRBO... it is great to choose a nice rental unit, but it is priceless to have the great service and backup that this owner provided. Thanks again Bruce, we will be returning soon!!!! Aloha
PS if you want to sleep, don't feed the chickens, no matter where you stay, please, don't feed the chickens!
It means a lot to me to hear this. Kauai is a special place.
Aloha and Mahalo,
Wonderful location and beautiful condo!
We just enjoyed one week in this well furnished, beautiful condo in Princeville. I loved the location...you can walk down to Wyllie Beach with continued access to Anini Beach. It is a short drive to Hanalei Bay and the other north shore beaches. Best of all, the condo is beautifully furnished and the kitchen was one of the best I have had using VRBO. We truly appreciated the appliances, the cookware and all the dishware. We made use of the outdoor garden patios every day, even in the rain! It is a perfect spot to enjoy your coffee and listen to the birds. The hot tub was a bonus, especially with all the rainy weather we had during our week! This condo has everything you will need for a wonderful vacation! We made great use of the beach chairs, and snorkel fins and we appreciated the beach towels as well. I highly recommend this condo for anyone looking for a quiet stay in a beautiful location! Mahalo for sharing your piece of paradise with us!
Mahalo and aloha!
Outstanding and beautiful home!
We stayed for 9 days at this beautiful condo. It had everything....and more!...than we could ever have asked for-well stocked, clean, excellent location, comfortable beds...you name it, it had it! It is just a short hike to a gorgeous beach and a short walk to a fantastic grocery store. There is a trail that runs along the golf course so morning and/or evening walks were a delight. It is located in a great area around all the things to do on the North Shore. We could not have found a better place! I recommend this condo to anyone going to Kauai-you can't beat it in comfort, beauty, location and price!
Beautiful home with excellent amenities
Very nice home away from home. Completely enjoyed our stay and experience.
Accommodations comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed the private hot tub and the large community swimming pool. Good location, near beaches, stores and restaurants. Bruce is very detailed in his instructions and they included everything we needed to know. He also provides some additional helpful info about the area. Nice media in the house for rainy days. My only suggestion would be to get some nicer beach chairs
The condo was beautiful to look at and hard for us old people to use. The bathtub was hard to get into and I have the scratched knees to prove it. Once in, it was comfortable. Treacherous to get out of. Nothing to hold onto. The sliding window covering, doors were so hard to move. The slider out to the washer and dryer was ridiculous. The step downs were hard
The walk to anini was perfect. Great beach. The manager was helpful. The bed was divine. The roosters and the rain were heavenly. Orion overhead at 3 am was sensational.
A beautiful accommodation only not for someone with Parkinson's and arthritis and vertigo.
Grateful to have been in Kauai. Sending love and light
I'm sorry for your difficulties. I've done my best to fix some of these. A hotel room is probably more suitable for some. We use the 5 ft walk in shower.
Kauai Weather Weather you could be enjoying! Mon 11/26/2012 at 7 pm it is 74°F , today's high was H 80 F, and the low was L 66 F Step off the plane and feel the warm embrace of Kauai with average yearly temperatures ranging between 84 and 69 degrees. Ocean temperatures are also perfect ranging from 71 to 81 degrees year round. Kauai offers seven distinct microclimates, from lush interior spots to arid areas on the West Side. Mount Waialeale (elevation 5,148 ft) is at the heart of Kauai's uninhabited interior and is a quintessential rainforest with over 400-inches of rain per year. The rain that falls around Mt. Waialeale generally does not affect the coastal parts of the island, which get far less rain than the central spots (as little as 18-inches a year in western areas). Much of Kauai's rainfall is a nightly occurrence, and the rain showers that do occur are almost always brief. When you do see rain, wait for the beautiful rainbows that follow. The trade winds in Kauai also keep things cool for visitors. The winds are generally light and help chase away much of Hawaii’s humidity. With such great weather, any time of year is a good time to visit Kauai.
