Beautiful Princeville condominium with pool, air-conditioning, and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was spacious and immaculately kept. The grounds were absolutely beautiful as well. Inside, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to prepare our full meals. There was plenty of bedding and towels, and comfortable places to sleep for our nine people. Also, it was convenient to have umbrellas, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, and plenty of beach towels. I thought the owners were quite friendly and easy to work with. We would definitely come back to visit this gorgeous condominium in Kauai!!

A lovely place to stay with all the amenities of home.

  • 5 of 5

The beds and pillows were soo comfortable! Lots of room in the kitchen to prepare food for the day. Spent most of the days on the beaches close to site. We did find a new one at Rock Quarry, basically just the locals know about it. The owners are very receptive to any needs. Thanks again.

Beautiful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this beautiful home. We arrived very late but we felt rejuvenated when we walked into the home. There were flowers to welcome us along with chocolates. This was our second trip to Kauai and it has become our favorite. We came to renew our vows for our 25th Anniversary with our 2 grown kids and our lifelong friends. We loved that the house was equipped with beach towels, snorkeling gear,beach chairs and ice chests. This home was more than enough room for 7 of us. We used the pool, hot tub and BBQ area a couple times. We especially loved the beverage cooler for water and adult beverages. The only drawback is the HOA which included a lot of rules. That stressed me out since I'm a rule follower. Our 2 families highly recommend this beautiful home and all the gorgeous views. We did the tubing with BackCountry Adventures and Blue Hawaiian for our helicopter tour. They were fantastic adventures.

Overall would stay again

  • 4 of 5

First time to Kauai. It was beautiful and so much more to do than we expected. House fit 9 of perfectly. Well stocked in kitchen, beach supplies, linens and towels. Overall pretty clean. Great princeville location and felt very safe with my young kids.

A few cons were that the complex had very strict rules. You are not allowed to be loud at the pool, have balls, any kind of pool flotation or toys. Jumping off the little rocks got my kids yelled at a few times. No parking close to the pool (walking isnt far, we just had some elderly people who has a hard time walking) and the hot tub was broke our entire stay. Also, felt the people who were to manage the home (not the owers) were not very friendly.

Thank you Martin's for opening your home to us! We had a great time!

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry, you were yelled at, but they were looking out for the safety of your kids. Parking is very limited at the complex, this is why they are strict about parking by the pool, otherwise everyone would park there and still there wouldn't be any parking spaces. We're sorry the hot tub was out of order, because it had just broken and the complex had to order parts from the mainland, The reason you felt my people were not friendly is because they wouldn't let stay the whole day when check out time is 11:00 am, you only contacted them the night before. Had you asked earlier maybe we could have done something to accommodate you, and been able to schedule cleaning of the unit at another time before the next guest came in.

My family took our first trip to Kauai in March and we stayed at Nihilani because it was the most affordable place for all 10 of us. I travelled with my husband and two kids, my brother and his wife, my sister and her husband, and my dad and his wife-- to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday. We loved our stay at the House of Aloha! First, we loved the kitchen. We prepared and ate most of our meals there and it was perfect for all 10 of us. Second, we loved having the two-car garage complete with boogie boards, scuba gear, water shoes, and ice chests-- these are essential items while on the island! Third, the bedrooms accommodated us all perfectly. And fourth, the pool and grounds were lovely. This was a wonderful location near a beautiful golf course and in a pretty, private setting. I cannot say enough about how accommodating the owners were to us from the very beginning. They were quick to respond to questions or requests and ensured our stay was acceptable. You will not find a nicer place, in a better location, at a better price. Mahalo!

Amazing! So family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the House of Aloha immensely. There were two families of 4 staying here and it was the perfect size. Everything we could have possibly needed was right at our fingertips. The grounds were immaculate the house itself was beautiful and very well kept and the pool area was gorgeous. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.
