This relaxing, custom home was built in 1987 and is well equipped with a unique design and amazing ocean view. The house sits on the 6th hole of the Makai Golf Course and yet it is in the heart of the rain forest!
We have seen whales in the late winter through spring on the lanai! The Kilauea Light House (a short drive away) has whale watching as well as incredible bird watching stations!
It is difficult to describe the tranquil beauty and incredible flowers that grace this home! The mountain view from the house is the site of the 'rainiest place on earth' and the rainbows are incredible.
The upstairs king bedroom with sitting area, lanai and soaking tub has views of the mountain, the golf course and the ocean. The next level down features a 'California King' bedroom with a double shower and a lanai.
The living room, dinning room, kitchen and lanai to the outside (where the ocean view is amazing) and 'California King' bedroom are on the main level.
The lower level features two bedrooms, one with a full bed and a bathroom/shower and the other bedroom has two twin beds with a bathroom/tub/shower. This level also has an entertainment area with a flat screen TV, pool table and game table. There are also 2 new double Euro Lounge sleeper/sofas, and 2 twin futons.
The outside hot tub sits on the deck among the tall tree's across from the basement twin bedroom.
**This home has recently been painted (inside and out) with new appliances (including new refrigerator, oven/stove, microwave, washer and dryer and coffee maker) outside furniture, fixtures, screens, landscape improvements and some nice updates.

Susan Oakley/Property Administrator purchased this House in 1987
Why Susan Oakley/Property Administrator chose Princeville
We had the opportunity to purchase the land that overlooks the ocean, has amazing mountain views as well as the fact that the home is located on the 6th hole of the Makai golf course! It is within walking distance of the Princeville Center, and just down the street from the St. Regis Princeville Hotel and beaches. Also the infamous 'Queen's Bath' is right around the corner in this quiet and peaceful neighborhood. Our home is older, yet very unique with some nice "updates". There are incredible flowers and lush vegetation being in the rain forest. We are next to the golf course, have the ocean view and are in a cozy neighborhood just a few houses from Queen's Bath. We have recently given our home a "new " look with a fresh coat of paint inside and out, new appliances, outdoor furniture, fixtures, screens, and more! We have noticed that everyone arriving on the island are completely different upon leaving Kauai. When they leave they all have the 'shuffle' and are so relaxed. This is a family friendly home.
What makes this House unique
The design of the house is unique, open and spacious, and the stars at night are amazing! Sitting on the lanai is the best place to watch the amazing and always unique sunsets!

We just loved our stay at the Oakley home in Kauai! The house is amazing and so comfortable. There were six adults in our group and each of us had our own bedroom and bathroom on a separate floor. It felt like each couple had their own "wing" at the home. The kitchen is very well stocked. Everything we could possibly need was there. The views were exceptional. We loved looking out at the ocean and watching the sunsets from the lanai. The garage was well stocked with items to take to the beach.
The Property Administrator was very helpful and attentive. Information about the home was clear and concise.
Kauai is such a beautiful place with so much to do and at the Oakley home, we felt right at home during our stay.
One word, spectcular!
Incredible house, incredible view, incredible island! We had an incredible time :)
So perfectly stated. We love Kauai and this beautiful island home and amazing views! Mahalo!
Great house in a great location!
The Oakley House is incredible! It is intimate enough for a couple yet large enough for a large family/families. The house is clean, well maintained, tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and more. Each bedroom had its own bath, the layout is ideal! We spent many leisurely hours on the lanai watching the whale migration, sun sets, and native exotic birds. The views are spectacular! The trail head to Queens Bath is approximately 100 yards from the driveway. There are numerous beach options within walking distance. Communication with the property administrator was prompt and polite. We found this house to be exactly what we had hoped it would be, perfect for our first trip to Kauai! We would not hesitate to return to this property.
Mahalo! This comment sums up this home perfectly. It's right down the street from Queen's Bath and the winter and early spring offer whale and bird watching, and a new season of gorgeous flowers are beginning to bloom. The unique design of this home allows for groups of all sizes to feel comfortable and entertaining extends beyond the house on to the 3/4 "wrap around" lanai. Come visit again!
Nice getaway - comfortable with beautiful views
Stayed here with a group of 10 ranging from 3 to 63 and we all loved it. Everyone found it to be roomy and comfortable... in fact, nobody wanted to leave! The views were lovely and we found we were right next door to a nice hike down to a pretty cool site - Queen's Bath. Some of us also walked about a mile down to the beach at the St Regis and loved it. It was nice to find some of the essentials in place already - things like toilet paper, spices, sunscreen, towels, etc were all there for us to enjoy so we didn't have to worry about shopping for some of the basics. Ditto for board games and some beach gear (eg, buckets, boogie boards, etc). The kitchen was very nice, with a new fridge and pots/pans/utensils all in good shape. Furniture and beds were all clean and comfortable. The house was clean by everyone's standards - even my mother in law's!
Every place has its downsides. Some of the belongings in the home are quite old (encyclopedias and books from the 1960's, bathroom/shower fixtures are dated, pool table and balls are old, there are a ton of VCR tapes there but the VCR isn't plugged in, etc.) Some people will be turned off by this. For me, this added to the homey feel of the house and reminded me of some of the things from my own home growing up. Also, while there was space for the 10 of us, we had young kids who were 6 and 3. If everyone was an adult, I think it would hold 8 or 9 comfortably... others would need to sleep on a futon or couch.
We did find a few issues upon arrival that were inconvenient. The internet wasn't working and given that we arrived pretty late, we couldn't call anyone to fix it. We spent several hours trying to troubleshoot it ourselves and eventually figured out that the breaker had tripped and that a cord was unplugged in one of the other bedrooms, which were both causing the problem. Seems like something that should have been checked prior to arrival. There was a lot of excitement about using the hot tub, but when we opened it, we found a shrimp floating around in it. Clearly it hadn't been cleaned, which was disappointing. Nobody wanted to get in the hot tub after that, so we wound up not using it at all. I'm sure the property manager would have taken care of it if we had asked, but there were so many other things to do that we didn't bother.
Overall, these issues were pretty minor. The house was great! We would be happy staying here again.
This family home is perfect for large groups and special family gatherings. The views, walking trails and natural attractions are all within walking distance from the house. We love the fact that it is an older home with a unique design and character that was ahead of its time. We especially love the spaciousness and cozy feel and over time we have been updating and will continue to do so.
Our new management team has been excellent so far and reported that the hot tub was clean. The internet was working for the previous guest who wrote a nice thank you message stating that they all enjoyed and appreciated the newly activated DVR, just in time for watching the Superbowl after it aired! The Oakley family has created a special home with amazing views. This home is indeed perfect for relaxation and for enjoying the peaceful island of Kauai!
Had a wonderful time! Home was great for large group and the sunsets spectacular!
Thank you to the owners for sharing their beautiful home!
We are so happy that you enjoyed the OakIey home and that the accommodations worked out for you. The sunsets are incredible and different each night! This home is perfect for large groups and the lower level is the best place to occasionally "get away" from the large group. Hope you visit again!
New Years in Kauai
Our family of 12 had a wonderful time staying at the Oakley residence. It was a perfect set up for us. The house was super clean when we arrived as we got in late in the evening! The kitchen has everything necessary to cook for our family which made it easy to plan and then take excursions around the island. We loved the view of the ocean and saw whales which was very exciting for our grandchildren! We loved the quiet neighborhood and the walking path that is around the golf course. Thank you for a very memorable vacation that our family will remember forever!
This is the whale watching season and how exciting to see the whales from the lanai! There are so many nice walking paths throughout this quiet neighborhood and Queen's Bath is only a few houses away! We are very pleased with our property management team. They keep the home really clean and well maintained after updating the house along with many projects. This is the perfect home for families and people of all ages love the design, open spaces and privacy. Thank you for your nice comment and come back to the garden isle!
