About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Full Bathrooms, 2 Half Bathrooms

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. There is a brand new "Pack and Play", highchair and 3 safety gates as well.**

About Susan Oakley/Property Administrator

This photo is of our '60th' Wedding Anniversary surprise party in Boulder Colorado at a CU football game! We are pictured in the center.

When we built our home in 1986 our grandchildren, Chris (7) and Brianne (5) 'helped' us, and we are now proud great- grandparents! Gary is a retired manufacturer and twin engine Cessna pilot and JoAnn is an artist and dietitian. 'The great-grandchildren 'keep us young' and always amazed.'

Susan Oakley/Property Administrator purchased this house in 1987

Why Susan Oakley/Property Administrator chose Kauai

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!

New Years in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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!

Christmas in Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful Christmas this year at the Oakley residence in Princeville. The accommodations were perfect for our large group, 8 adults and 3 kids. The house had everything we needed to make our vacation relaxing and fun. We took a treacherous hike ( due to the slippery conditions of the trail ) to Queen's Bath and saw 3 giant sea turtles. Hanging out on the lanai for hours afforded us the opportunity to see whales! The views are absolutely breathtaking. I was especially proud of the design my Dad incorporated with frameless corner windows so even from inside the view is uninterrupted. Had beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The property manager was very helpful and even went above and beyond to supply a small Christmas Tree. Santa managed to find the Oakley house no problem! Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your lovely home that my Dad designed. I hope to come back!

Owner's Response: Very true, this time of year is challenging on the cliffs, but how wonderful to see the turtles and whales. This home was built to incorporate the incredible views in a seamless manner. So glad you were able to enjoy the home and the garden island. Hope you come back to visit soon!

Our first family Christmas vacation at the Oakley House in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Oakley House in Princeville, Kauai just two days before Christmas. We all were very elated with the accommodation and the spectacular views of the ocean, mountains, and golf course. The design of the home is remarkable with the three levels, multiple doorways, and privacy.

The property manager was very accommodating and even brought us his personal small Christmas tree so we could put our grand children's gifts under the tree for Christmas morning. We were so thankful for the personal touch. Celebrating Christmas at the Oakley House was very special for us.

We spent so much time on the lanai overlooking the ocean, enjoying the tropical breeze, listening to and watching the birds, enjoying the Hawaiian geese, and occasionally managed to see a few whales as they made their appearance while migrating. What a relaxing and enjoyable vacation it was for the entire family. Thank you!

Owner's Response: What very special Christmas memories for you and your family. Our property manager is so helpful and caring. This is the start of the whale watching season and how amazing to be able to watch them from the lanai. The lanai does have incredible views! This home has a unique design and accommodates groups of all sizes. Thank you for expressing your stay at the Oakley home so accurately. Come back soon!

Paradise Found on the North Shore of Kauai

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time visiting and staying at this island home( the last was 14 years ago)! WE found this to be the most relaxing part of our vacation!! ( first part spent on Big Island of Hawaii)

The home is very spacious( sleeps 14 on beds easily) and the great room is so inviting with the high pavilion type ceiling and ceiling fans to capture the cool trades winds blowing off the 6th hole of the golf course literally overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The sunsets were incredible each night! Other guests at the Makai( Princeville Golf Course) would make the trek to the 6th hole just to see what we were literally on our deck with dinner and drinks observing!! Bonus: 4 pairs of nesting Albatrosses had baby chicks hidden on the 6th hole which we would visit daily!

The Hot tub was a nice feature and we used the garage outdoor shower and hoses to rinse off our beach gear and selves before entering the home. The washer /dryer and plethora of towels and beach accoutrements were well used and appreciated!

Our rooms had everything you needed: private baths, fans, towels, fresh Tropical flowers and stunning views!

The kitchen is a well appointed gourmet kitchen for a crowd. (This is the perfect family reunion spot because you are not on top of each other!) Even as i write this, I am looking for the holiday season for the rest of us to come....

North shore beaches with snorkeling, Bali Hai cliffs, hiking, water sports and NaPali coast so close. This is THE ISLAND(Hawaii in its natural, non touristy state) with so many things to do, you need to plan another vacation to fit it all in. Nevertheless, just hanging out at the house, walking down the short trek to the tide pools and swimming in the ocean makes a wonderfully relaxing day.. Easy to get on Island time on this property. Runs and walks around the Princeville golf course daily are absolutely tropical paradise!!!

Recommend a rental car here to do and see everything. And only other recommendation is to provide 2 beach chairs to take to the beach!

Owner's Response: This comment sums up our "newly" remodeled home (with new appliances) perfectly! It is a unique design allowing privacy and relaxation on every level. What a bonus to see the new Albatross chicks this time of year! Good suggestions as well. It's not too early to start making holiday plans and this is the perfect "family reunion" home. Mahalo!

Our third visit

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to this property and I cannot say enough good things about it! We love the family feel to the place and the location is absolutely perfect. Anything you would ever need for the beach is available in the garage. On our first visit over 10 years ago we stayed with a large group of 9 and the house fit us all wonderfully. The next time there was just 5 of us and this time 4. Every visit has been spectacular and this time we noticed many updates including kitchen appliances and new furniture down stairs. The views are spectacular and everything is so peaceful. You are withing walking distance of the Princeville Resort/beach. We wish we could go back every summer!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your comments. It is true that the our home has gone through many updates and changes over the years and we continue to do so! It is family friendly and there are so many beach items in the garage, including kid beach toys, umbrellas and boogie boards. The house is within walking distance to the St. Regis Hotel (formerly the Princeville Hotel) and just a few houses away from the Queen's Bath! The views are incredible and the house is so peaceful. I am glad that you have been able to see the "transformation" of our home over time, and we plan to continue the "transformation".

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. It was perfect for our group of 12! The set up was great for our families. Adults up stairs, young adults downstairs. Kitchen and living area was spread out out for a large group. The house has a big lanai with a table and lounges, the ocean views were beautiful from morning to evening sunset. We enjoyed being close to Queens Bath, watching the activity on the golf course. The kitchen was well equipped, it was nice that there were spices, some basics and plenty of dishes. We had one issue with the oven, but it was fixed it immediately. There were a few beach chairs, lots of beach towels, a couple umbrellas, even some boogie and surf boards. The bikes could use some help! Close to the Princeville Foodland. Yes it is a bit dated, but we weren't there for the interior design, the beds all the furniture was comfortable, it's beautiful. We loved this house and would recommend it to others traveling with a larger group. Thank you sharing your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: It is true, that watching the golfers is a lot of fun, and the golf course is so close to the house as is "Queen's Bath." We are continuing to "update", however, this is a process and it takes time. Our home is cozy and "family friendly." Young adults and children really enjoy the lower level and when the time comes for large group gatherings, there is plenty of space on the upper level and on the "wrap around" deck. We are grateful for our maintenance and house keeping personnel for their hard work and prompt response. Come visit again! Mahalo
