To our surprise we also had easy acces to a pool and hot tub which was very welcome after a day of hiking. The appartement is very comfortable, has all things you need for a convenient stay (like extra cleaning wipes, dishwasher tablets, trash bags etc). The only thing they can do better is the cleaning. As you pay a serious cleaning fee, I'd expect it to be more proper.
What a beautifully upgraded 2nd floor unit! It has all the comforts of home, and we really appreciated the chocolate covered macaemia nuts! Going to sleep and waking up to the sounds of the ocean was heavenly. The jacuzzi was fabulous! Thank you for a truly memorable stay in Kauai.
This condo was perfect. The photos on VRBO are exactly what you are getting. If you like to cook everything you need is in the kitchen and you won't be afraid to use the cookware!! Loved that there was a supply of dish soap, dishwasher pods, laundry pods and bath amenities. The bed and bath linens in the condo are high quality. My favorite thing was sleeping with the windows open and hearing the waves crash. Bonus for us we were never awakened by the roosters!! We have stayed at many VRBO properties and this condo was one of the best...would definitely stay here again.
This was our second time staying in one of Jeff's and Shana's homes at Ali'i Kai. They're very easy to work with, very responsive, and their homes are pristine. This particular unit has a lovely ocean view from the living room and one bedroom, while the other bedroom has a view of the mountains, waterfalls, and Bali Hai. Even when you're inside, you feel like you're outside:). The condo offers beautiful and well-kept furniture and linens, as well as a well-stocked kitchen (even a decent blender, which you don't find in many rented homes). Beach chairs and umbrella were fairly new, but there were only two chairs. It would be nice to have four on a regular basis, since the condo accommodates four people. Don't let the lack of air conditioning keep you away from this unit. Since the windows seem to face north and south in this particular unit, you won't get the East/West sun blazing in on you, and there is a lovely cross-breeze all day long -- as well as several ceiling fans that work well. It was hot on Kauai while we were there, but you wouldn't have known it until you stepped outside. We will stay here again...thank you, Jeff and Shana!
Super nice & updated condo. Good ocean & mountain views. Was worried about not having A/C as we were there at the end of June. But absolutely didn’t need it. Rooster wake up call everyday at 6:30/7am, but that’s everywhere on the island. Gorgeous part of the island to be located on-North Shore/Princeville area. Do have windows open all the time, so if you have kids with you, keep that in mind. Would absolutely stay here again!!!
This place is better than pictured. I could live here. The condo was nicely finished and clean. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. We had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The beach chairs and umbrella came in handy. There were beach towels available for us to use as well. The owners also left a welcome treat on the counter which was a nice touch. We had to reach out to the owners at one point during our stay for assistance (had nothing to do with the accommodations) and they responded within 20 minutes and were able assist us. I was a little worried about there being no AC. While it does cool down at night, if you are someone who is used to cold AC at night it may be a little challenging. My fiance barely slept because he likes it to be 68 when he sleeps. I slept like a baby. We did have to buy some ear plugs because the birds (no roosters surprisingly) wake up with the sun. Which is a lovely sound if you have gotten enough sleep for the night. I would definitely stay here again. I would love to move to this neighborhood! Very peaceful and relaxing.
The condo was a lovely experience! The photos and reviews were exact. It's clean, comfortable and spacious with great decor. There is ocean view with a nice lanai. We thought no AC would be a problem but it wasn't. There are ceiling fans in every room with a great ocean breeze. The complex is in a good location with beautiful landscaping grounds. Our only suggestion is that the check-out time could be a little later than 10 AM. Otherwise we would definitely stay here again.
Everything is top-shelf; beautifully decorated, furniture, amenities, and management. The kitchen was modern and extremely functional. (If I had to include any area for improvement, it would've been the kitchen. The water pressure was somewhat low compared to the rest of the condo. Some additional skillets/cookware might have been nice too--however, we tend to be "demanding" when it comes to kitchens. The bedrooms & baths were luxurious with views, beds, flat-screens and plenty of closet space. The complex is also beautiful. We are frequent visitors to the beautiful North Shore and have also stayed this complex. The grounds are pretty, it has nice pool areas, great views and close to everything to do at the north shore. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.
My rating would be 4.5 if that was an option...but this condo is beautifully remodeled and decorated, has a very nice view of the ocean on the lanai side and mountains on the guest room side. The accommodations are very nice and the master bath is beautiful. My only caveats are that because the unit sits between a parking lot and the road through the complex, it can be a bit noisy. Especially with all the windows open to let in the breeze. And while there is a full set of appliances and dishes, the only other provisions in the kitchen are salt and pepper, and coffee filters...keep that in mind when buying groceries. That said, we had a lovely time here and very relaxing mornings and evenings on the lanai...its very close to the Princeville walking trail and the owners/managers were a pleasure to work with.
Think of Jeff and Shana's place as a home away from home. Maybe a more organized home away from home! When you look for a wine opener, open the drawer you'd keep it in at home. There it is! A vacation should be carefree, so if the sliding screen to the balcony is sticking, which it was, call Jeff and boom --it's fixed within half an hour. Perfect. Now you can enjoy the sunset from your four balcony chairs, sipping that wine. If home were only this right, you wouldn't need that vacation.
Very clean, spacious and updated condo! Kitchen had all we needed to prepare many meals in house. We loved the view of the ocean out one side of the unit and the mountains out of the other! We really enjoyed sitting on the deck and sipping a glass of wine at the end of the day as the sun set. Beds were large and comfortable. Loved the spa feeling of the master shower! Pool and hot tub were clean and well-kept. We even cooked our dinner using the gas grill there one evening. Jeff, the owner, was very quick to respond to our e-mails. We have nothing but great things to say about this place we called home during our very memorable trip to Kauai. Our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer!
There was adequate room for 4 adults. We didn't feel on top of another. The master suite was lovely. Condo was clean and well taken care of. Would definitely return to this property! Management was great! Able to accomodate our requests and welcoming of my child(some properties don't allow children)!
We had a great stay in this condo while on the north shore in January 2017. The condo was well stocked and we greatly appreciated the beach equipment provided (towels, chairs, cooler, and an umbrella). The condo is in a great location, with easy access to everything. The immediate area is all condos so it can get a little noisy with traffic or neighbors, but thankfully everyone was respectful during the overnight hours.
We really enjoyed the wonderful location of the condo. We were able to walk everyday and go over to walking paths by the golf course close by. With the windows open the trade winds keep the condo cool. It is very soothing to hear the ocean at night and the complex is very quiet. We enjoyed the pool almost everyday along with the hot tub. We were so happy with Jeff whom helped us the first day we were there. The master bedrooms television didn't turn on. We called him and he installed a brand new bigger television in our room right away. Whenever we had a concern we called him and he addressed it. We stayed more than two weeks and felt very much at home here. We enjoyed lunch and dinner at Bistro in Kilauea. Pizza and breadsticks from Kilauea Bakery and Pau Hana Pizza were excellent. We went to lunch poolside and a special dinner at the St. Regis which was such a wonderful experience. The whole trip went so well and we would recommend the condo to our friends in the future.
My family of four were very comfortable in this lovely condo. The space was perfect for the four of us and I appreciated that we had everything we needed from beach chairs and towels, laundry supplies and a fully stocked kitchen. The condo was immaculately clean when we arrived and was easy to find and access. I would 100 percent recommend this terrific property to anyone who wants a private and spacious rental. We loved it and will return again in the future.
This was our first time booking a rental on VRBO, and frankly, we were just a bit apprehensive about what to expect. Our last visit to Princeville, Kauai, was at the Westin, a few years ago, so our standards were a bit high due to that stay. While we obviously gave up some amenities staying at a vacation rental by owner versus a hotel chain (the daily cleaning service), I have to say, that our stay at this property exceeded our expectations! This unit was beautifully updated and appointed, and it was very comfortable, and a pleasure to stay in! Everything was clean and well equipped, and we even found that the staff went to great lengths when we needed something extra-giving us the use of a couple of extra beach chairs to use for the week, for our party of four, to supplement the two that were provided. The unit came with a small cooler, four beach towels, and a a sweet drink mixer which came in very handy! Overall, I would say that the description of the unit was pretty much spot on (pictures on the website are very accurate), but included these extras, which was a pleasant surprise! Shana did a terrific job of recommending places to see, and things to do on the island, and each of her recommendations was outstanding! She even helped out with our reservations and tried to help us make our stay as enjoyable as possible-very personable, and graciously accommodating-thanks, Shana! We definitely recommend this unit for your next stay in beautiful Kauai! Restaurants musts, for your visit: The Mermaid-Kapa'a, The Fish Market-Kilauea, The Dolphin-Hanalei; Best beach: Hanalei bay; Fun outing: Golfcarting at Makai golf course for spectacular view of sunset-Princeville! Enjoy!
My Goodness.... what a FABULOUS Review Sheila. We love hosting guests on this BEAUTIFUL Island. Each guest is SPECIAL to us. Great care goes into making sure the stay is MOST ENJOYABLE. We hope you return and stay as our guest for many years to come. Thank you for the thoughtful review. You really made our day :) With gratitude, Shana & Jeff
We've been to Kauai several times and have had the opportunity to stay at different properties in Princeville. This one is pretty great, and we'll probably rebook here for the next trip. It's in a good location, if you want to stay on the north shore, which we prefer. While the property is part of a complex, it still felt fairly private. Some places we've stayed may have been 'homier', in that owners used them for their trips as well, but honestly we really appreciated that this property felt more like a hotel with little touches like complementary toiletries and the concierge service etc. We would definitely have no problem recommending this property to friends.
Aloha Sarah! Such a Wonderful Compliment :) Thank you... Yes, we keep this condo as Upscale as a Hotel with Complimentary things like Shampoo & Conditioner and pretty folded bath towels :) and more... The fully equipped kitchen is such a wonderful bonus, providing guests the comforts of home. Then there is the View..! We warmly welcome your return and would be thrilled to host your friends as well. With gratitude, Shana & Jeff
The property was exactly as described. Everything was very clean and well kept. It was a great central location on the North shore of Kauai and very convenient to a great many activities. In the winter months, you will not be able to hit the north shore beaches as much due to high surf, but it is a 45-60 minute drive to the south side. We would definitely return.
Aloha Rick, we enjoyed hosting your stay and welcome your return. With gratitude, Shana & Jeff
This particular unit is very lovely with great attention to detail. While spacious, it also offers a cozy feel. Just moments from the bluff, as well as the sparkling pool and large hot tub, visitors can easily take advantage of the amenities and spectacular ocean views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and feel that other guests would as well. Thank you for providing a wonderful home away from home. Best Regards, Keith and Shane
The Sparkling Pool and Large Jacuzzi really is an added bonus to the vacation experience. The Lush Tropical Landscape is so Beautiful. This condo is impeccably maintained and we are thrilled you appreciated the fine details and proximity to the Ocean Bluff. We welcome your return! With gratitude, Shana & Jeff
This property was just lovely! It's been beautifully renovated and designed. I kept wishing it were my own home! The views were beautiful, the beds were very comfortable, it was peaceful and quiet, and our every need was met! The complex pool was really nice, too! I can't recommend this property enough. It was very well managed, and all of the directions and instructions were super clear. Thank you for a really wonderful place to stay in Princeville!!!!
What a Fantastic Review...! Everyone appreciates the Resort Map, Directions & Clear Check-In Instructions we provide. We are happy to read you didn't want to leave. We put a lot of love into this condo and want it to be a place where wonderful memories are made. We welcome your return Laurel. With gratitude, Shana & Jeff
Perfect 2 BR location. We had a little trouble with TV and it was fixed the same day! I would highly recommend this location!!!!!
Aloha! We agree, it is a PERFECT LOCATION. It was a pleasure to host your stay. The TV was a quick fix and being onsite makes our response time unbelievably fast :) We welcome your return. With gratitude, Shana & Jeff
