Sit on the lanai and watch whales, dolphins, and the surf!

Carrie Whitaker purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Carrie Whitaker chose Princeville
We have been coming to the North Shore of Kauai for many years, and have always been enamored with it. When we began looking to buy we saw many beautiful homes and condos, but nothing felt like "it". It wasn't until we walked into Ali'i Kai and saw the breathtaking ocean view that we knew we had found our little piece of paradise.
What makes this Condo unique
The truly endless ocean views and sound of the crashing waves make this property incredibly special.

Awesome view. Spacious
Enjoyable Stay Overlooking the Ocean
This was the perfect home base for our family vacation. The condo was very clean and equipped with everything that you may need for your adventures or lazy days. The views were amazing! It did get a little warm inside the apartment in the late afternoon/evening since there is no A/C. This was not much of an issue for us. We kept the blinds closed when we were not there during the day and that seems to make a difference keeping it cooler inside. There were plenty of beach chairs, snorkel gear, a beach umbrella, and a good sized soft-sided cooler to use. We used the community BBQ for a couple of meals which is located just a few yards from the front door. My parents were very glad that there were no stairs to go up or down to get to the condo. Parking was free and easy, and it was never a problem to get a spot close to our condo.
Sunrises and sunsets
Every morning and evening, spectacular views. Beautiful property, great location for so many things on the North side.
Fantastic views in great area
This is a great condo with a fabulous view. We liked how there were no stairs from the parking lot, yet we’re on the 2nd floor above the lawn. I really appreciated that there was a washer/dryer in the unit (to dry all our beach towels!) The overhead fans are especially helpful to capture the breezes. My son loved that there was a pool in the complex, just a short walk away. We also were thankful that they had some beach chairs to borrow, for our snorkel days. We’ve had a lovely time here and would come back!
Beautiful sunrises from the lanai.
Good location on north shore; not walking distance to anything though. A couple of miles off of the main highway through a residential area. No directions on how to get there, so it was a bit of a challenge, especially in the dark. Clean condo with the exception of the main suite bathroom. Carrie was easily accessible through emails and responded promptly. Overall, good, but not our favorite place that we stayed at on Kauai.
I am sorry you felt it wasn't walking distance to anything.We enjoy walking to the St. Regis and beach below with are about 1 1/2 miles away. We also enjoy walking to the Princeville Center which is about one mile away. We realize that different people like to or are able to walk different distances.
Driving Directions, access information, wifi and all information needed for our condo is provided on my VRBO site through the hospitality manager. Sorry you missed that. Each guest receives an invitation to it once they book.
All the reviews I have received before mention the exceptional cleanliness of the condo. I am sorry you found the master suite bathroom not to your liking. I will surely address this with my cleaner. It is of the utmost importance to us.
Thanks for sharing your feedback. It helps me continually improve my service.
Breathtaking is right!
I have booked many condos through VRBO in many locations around the country, and this was the best view I have ever experienced. Every bedroom and living room window had a sweeping view of the ocean. It was amazing. The condo itself was very clean and stocked with everything you need, including all necessary beach paraphernalia. Carrie was extremely easy to communicate with, and she was very helpful in answering questions along the way. The pool and grounds around the complex were exceptional as well. I cannot recommend this condo enough.
