Overview

About the property

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.

The View is to die for!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Magical

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot sitting on top of a knoll overlooking the Ocean. We could enjoy the sounds and sights of the ocean from every room. The location was so convenient, just 5 minutes from a nice grocery store and close to many lovely restaurants and beaches. Jim and Rickie recommended some great restaurants, which we certainly enjoyed. It was our first time in Kauai and it exceeded our expectations. Beauty surrounds you everywhere.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Fell in love with the North side of the island, especially Hanalei. The condo was perfect for what we needed and had an unbelievable view. Not to mention, front row seat to the sunset. Quiet, well maintained and the owner was so accommodating. Would definitely recommend the condo to friends.

just as advertised

  • 4 of 5

My second trip to Kauai. I like this location because of how well kept the landscape is; the mosquitos were unbearable when I stayed in more forestry areas so it is great to take advantage of early morning coffee and late evening drinks on the patio. less than 5 minutes to major amenities. Clean, well maintained and a great size for 2 people. The view is exactly as shown and worth every penny.

Great, convenient place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

Our only complaint is the difficulty getting to and using the bedroom closet. Plenty of beaches and hikes are nearby and other things to do and see. Only spoke to our host on the phone and he was very willing to help us and gave us a lot of information. I would recommend this place for any couple.

Loved how close it is to the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed watching the sunrise, the sunset, and hiking the trail to snorkel at the secluded beach. All right outside the condo. The pineapple theme was a nice touch!
