Kauai Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

We are located in Princeville, Kauai on a beautifully manicured grass knoll with views of the ocean from the lanai, living room and bedroom. Just steps away is a trail that leads to your own secluded cove. This is the perfect place to relax in the sun and snorkel along an awesome coral reef teeming with many colorful tropical fish native to the islands. Are you a golfer? The Prince and the Makai are two exciting golf courses that surround our location. Return to the condo and prepare your meals in our well equipped kitchen or if you choose, dine out at one of the many restaurants in the area. At night fall asleep to the soothing sounds of the waves breaking on the shore. In the winter season, late December thru March, watch the whales migrate right in front of our place. Paradise is closer than you think. Come visit Kauai soon.

About Jim Grindle

Hi, We are the Grindle's. Jim, not pictured, Ricki and our daughter Jaimi are the owners of our Princeville condo. While Jaimi was studying to become a Nurse she lived in the condo we now own. As parents we could not believe she lived in such a wonderful area as Princeville right on the ocean. One day she called and told us that the owners of the condo asked her if she would like to buy it. We were so excited about the idea that we said, lets do it. How could you not want a place right on the ocean in Kauai. Over the next six months we put in $40.000 in up grades. A friend of mine said if you are interested in renting your place I recommend vrbo. It was the right thing to do. Now we can rent our place and go when we want to. It has worked out perfect. Ricki and I live in Dana Point, Ca. and visit as often as we can.

Jim Grindle purchased this condo in 2000

Why Jim Grindle chose Kauai

Kauai is known as the' Garden Island' and Princeville, located on the north shore, is unreal. We are right on the ocean with wonderful trade winds. At night we fall asleep listening to the waves breaking on the shore. Its paradise.

My first trip to Hawaii ever... And the stay was even better because of our stay at this condo. The pictures in the description do not even do the place justice! We arrived shortly after the noted check in time and the place was perfect! Not being used to the humidity my husband and I immediately turned on all the fans and opened all the windows! The sound of the waves outside was just so peaceful!

The place had everything we needed! We knew going to Kauai that it was not going to be cheap vacation, (we had planned so many activities) so we made it a point to go to the local grocery store and pick up some ingredients to make some of our meals in the condo. The local grocery store was only a short 5 minute drive from the condo. Which was perfect! We forgot a few necessities so having it that close was great!

I loved that the place had pretty much everything we needed. And if we used any of the things we made sure to put it back or replace it with something new! I was happy that we had a washer and dryer to use. There was already detergent there which was great, we used a little of it and was sure to leave more for any future guest!

The condo was equipt with everything you can think of. Even though the patio had tables and chairs we could use, we used the beach chairs to sit in the grass area closer to the edge of the cliff to enjoy the view, breeze and sound of the water. We sat out and enjoyed the sunset and sun rise. I could have slept out there, only it got too dark for me at night. Something I am SO not used to being from Southern California. Although there are many many many beaches to visit in the area we utilized the complex's swimming pool. I was also excited that "queens bath" was close to where we stayed as well. My husband and I learned very quickly that you cannot just drive to all the beaches. Most require a hike. So just be prepared!

Jim was wonderful to work with he responded very quickly in the time before our trip! I was so thankful he had prepared a little packet for us with tips and information about the area.

My husband and I were excited to take the short hike to the sealodge "private" beach. It took about 10-15 minutes to get there and it was so worth it! My husband is not an out-doorsy type and I was nervous for him. Haha, but he did just fine.

All around our stay at the sealodge was amazing! When I make another trip out to Kauai I will be sure to book my stay here! Mahalo and aloha!

Worked out great for us....

  • 5 of 5

We didn't really use anything but the bedroom & bathroom since we were constantly on the go but it was everything we needed. I really like soft beds so the foam topping on the mattress worked out fine. We had never been down to Sea Lodge beached it was perfectly deserted when we got there. On top of that, I saw two fish I'd never seen before in 30+ years of snorkeling.

This was our first trip to Hawaii and it was amazing! We are always skeptical using VRBO/HomeAway even though we have never had a bad experience. This was all that we hoped for and more! It was a very quiet, relaxing condo with amazing views. It was the end of the whale season so we were hoping to see a whale or two, but to our amazement, we saw several! It was such an experience to see them from the condo. If you plan on staying, bring your binoculars!

With a grocery store just a few minutes away and with all the amenities, you are all set to have a great time! Be prepared to relax and have a great stay!

Thank you so much Jim for letting us stay and helping make this a trip of a lifetime!

Couldn't be happier!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I adored our stay. As we entered the condo we both kept saying "No way!!" The views are incredible. Condo was very clean and is priced great for what you get. We didn't go to the pool at all, but we preferred to walk down a mini hike to an amazing little cove for some snorkeling. I've stayed at various places around Kauai and this was a favorite. Also- the washer and dryer are a GIANT Plus!! Makes the trip easy and great. This condo was the perfect size for two people- the bed was super comfy. Full kitchen was awesome to have as well. We hope to stay here again! Thanks Jim!!

Great view

  • 4 of 5

The condo has everything you need (full kitchen, laundry, etc.), and the view is fantastic. Customer service was excellent - Jim communicated with us by email in a timely manner and provided all information about the property in a well organized format. Everything with the rental went smoothly. Two points of constructive criticism: 1) I think the listing should note that there is no a/c. While you don't need it, as the place is very comfortable with breeze coming in the windows, it would be nice to know in advance. 2) I think the bedding and mattress could use an upgrade. The mattress is very soft (not supportive) and seemed kind of old. In my view, nice comfortable bedding makes a big difference in guests' experience. With that, this condo would easily receive a 5 star rating. Besides these minor points, the place is great and I would recommend it for couples seeking a convenient location on Kauai's North Shore. Note that there's a supermarket and really great wine shop about 2-3 minutes away in the Princeville Shopping Center.

My husband and I stayed five days in Jim’s condo to celebrate our honeymoon. The condo was the perfect hub for all our adventurous north shore activities. We loved the north shore! The north shore is not nearly as congested as the resort populated Poipu area and is a great vacation spot on the island. Jim’s condo was just what my husband and I desired: a beautiful ocean view, kitchenette to cook meals (complete with utensils and spices), snorkel gear, washer and dryer (which was very handy for washing our muddy hiking clothes), and dishwasher. The condo was very clean and looked exactly like the online pictures. Hanalei Dolphin’s fish market was our favorite place to grab excellent fresh sushi for a take-home dinner (this is a great way to cut down on food costs on your vacation). In fact, my husband and I enjoyed Hanalei Dolphin so much that we had different cuts of fresh take-home sushi every night for dinner. Book Jim’s condo today, you will not regret it!
