Spectacular endless ocean views over the seventh tee and sixth green of the world famous and newly remodeled Makai Golf Course and only steps away from Queen's Bath. Sh'Zen is a symphony of nature and you will have a box seat for it all; ocean sunsets, sunrise on the mountains,waterfalls,rainbows, whales and albatross in the winter and streaming giant waves thundering into Punahele Bay. You can expect gentle trades and nightime showers and sunfilled days.

Amenities include a 40 foot lap pool, hot tub, jacuzzi, fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops and silky Doug fir floors. The home has three levels. The master suite faces Mount Makena and Lumahai Bay and has a gigantic covered deck. The garden room suite looks over the pool and garden and has a covered lanai. The lower deck is the Captain's Cabin with futon and full bathroom, is air conditioned and has a lovely ocean, valley view as well as a large screen TV, home theater sound and DVD. There is a cable moden and wireless router for internet access via roadrunner.

Special attention has been given to night lighting for an ultra-tropical mood.

The home is steps away from the trail to Queen's Bath, half a mile to the five star Princeville Hotel and two miles to the Princeville Shopping Center which has a large supermarket. All the sights of the fabulous North Shore of Kauai are minutes away including Anini, dreamy Hanalei, Lumahai, Tunnels and Ke'e Beaches.

Sh'Zen is your ticket to the best Princeville has to offer and the place for a perfect tropical vacation. Pets are not permitted. Smoking is not allowed

Princeville's Sh'Zen: Best Bali Hai, Sunset View

Best view in Princeville!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house over the holidays and it was just amazing! The view and house exceeded our expectations, the pictures are nice but the real thing is even better. The view from the living room seating area and the dining room table were incredible, we even saw some whales offshore. Every day there were beautiful sunrises, sunsets and rainbows. You can see Bali Hai, the golf course and the ocean from the house. The house is well appointed and clean, if we come back to Princeville we would definitely stay again. Both Ben and Melanie were accommodating and available by phone or email any time we tried to reach them. There were no problems with our rental and we had a great time. Highly recommended!

Exceptional rental

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ben for opening up your home to us. We had a great 10 days. We just loved the location. We spent a lot of time just looking at the view and enjoying the beaches around the area. Walked to the queens bath at low tide and even snorkeled in it. The manager Melanie was outstanding, was there for us when needed and even went over and beyond by sending my husbands wetsuit shorts in the mail. We hope to come back soon.

We rented this amazing home to celebrate our daughter's wedding and it was absolutely perfect. We have some of the most beautiful pictures of her getting ready with the Pacific Ocean in the background as well as the golf course. Overall, we had a magnificent stay at Sh'Zen - words cannot convey how lovely, warm and welcoming this home is. Also, everything that we needed was provided and the home is so well organized. The owner was readily available as was the property manager. All necessary info was communicated to us prior to our arrival. We were able to entertain a few relatives with drinks on the lanai and in the garden around the pool. After my daughter's wedding, my husband and I simply relaxed every day at Sh'Zen - it was so hard to leave! Nothing on the island was better that watching the sun set from the lanai! And, it is truly beautiful - the online pictures do not do it justice - it's better in person! Loved our stay and we look forward to coming back to Shy'Zen!! Thank you so much, Ben, for sharing your home!

This home, location, and views are stunning! Our 4th visit to Kauai. Sh'Zen had us saying Wow, from the moment we walked through the gate.

The grounds are beautiful and private. The interior is spacious, clean and open. The kitchen had everything we needed. The master bedroom has views and a balcony that are simply gorgeous. How many places have an ocean view and golf view?! We enjoyed watching golfers reach the 7th green, which is in direct view from any of the back balconies of Sh'Zen. Watch the sun set from the balcony in the evenings.

The outdoor shower was very handy to rinse off beach sand. We took the opportunity to use the pool a couple of times as well. Although beach gear is not supplied, previous renters had left several boogie boards. They were in excellent condition, so we made good use of them.

The Captains cabin below, is accessed through a separate entrance. Wifi access is stronger here, than upstairs.

There was plenty of soap, shampoo, lotions, clothes washing detergent, etc provided.

Communication with the owner was very good.

Highly recommend this property!!

Perfect Honeymoon House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed here for our honeymoon. The photos do not do it justice..the house is GORGEOUS. We felt like we were walking into our very own private resort. We gasped when we walked through the gate the first time. The location is unbelievable. It's literally steps away from the entrance to the Queen's Bath trail. The master bedroom has 180 degree views of the ocean, mountains, and coast. The master bath has a very nice jacuzzi tub, and the huge shower was luxurious. It was very relaxing to swim and float around in the pool, surrounded by beautiful tropical flowers and plants. We had every amenity we needed available to us. The neighborhood is very nice, about a mile down the road from the famous St. Regis hotel. Nice walking paths for morning/evening strolls. Neighbors are all very friendly. Minutes away from the Princeville shopping center with the supermarket. We could not be happier with our stay here. Highly recommended.
