We loved our stay at this immaculate, comfortable condo. Because it's an end unit on the 2nd floor, it's very quiet except for the constant gentle music of the waves hitting the cliffs, and that was NEVER a problem--it was just the right amount of ocean sounds for us. The kitchen really is astonishing for a rental--every possible cooking implement is available, and all good quality, easy to find, easy to use. We enjoyed bringing home gorgeous produce from the local farmer's markets and making big healthy salads and vegetable plates for dinner. Meals were had on the deck, even when it was raining! The views are irresistible, because you can look at the ocean AND the mountains. This unit looks into a little jungly canyon, and every morning we heard wonderful birdsong as the sun came up. Location is ideal, parking is a snap, neighbors were friendly. We found the deck to be too hot mid-afternoon in the full sun to hang out and read, but honestly, there are so many places to wander off to instead... Be aware that this complex does not have access to a beach. You will need to drive or walk to a place for that if you want to swim or snorkel. There are VERY steep, dangerous-looking trails that people have sort of carved into the cliffs, and while we were there a woman had to get air-lifted from the shore after breaking an ankle. Signs posted ask people not to use the trails, but some still do, and helicopter rescues are not uncommon. So if you stay here, take the warnings seriously and head to a safe beach access--there are plenty close by. Finally, because this is important to us too: master bedroom is spacious with a super-comfy king sized bed. Nice linens, two nice bathrooms. Fans in every room keep the air moving when it's hot. Plenty of storage if you like to unpack. Snorkel and picnic gear are all available. We would stay here again, it's a special place!
What a gorgeous condo. As advertised, it has a great panoramic view of the ocean. The condo was exceptionally clean, the kitchen was well-stocked with pots,pans and utensils. The master bedroom was superb with a large bathroom, washer-dryer and walk-in shower. This unit was one of the best I ever rented.
It was awesome !! I wish we could have stay longer. We will try and return in a year or so. The only problem we had was in lack of communication regarding the returning of our large damage deposit.
Aloha..! We are delighted you enjoyed this Amazing Condo and it’s Spectacular Location. VRBO exclusively issues the security deposit refund not the host - VRBO takes 7 business days to reimburse the guest. We welcome your return and thank you.
We loved this property. It was clean, well managed and the hosts were very responsive. Lots of space for the two of us, great beds, bedding and bathrooms and a large kitchen. Complimentary snorkeling equipment, beach towels and coolers were very much appreciated. And the laundry, large living room with a beautiful view and peaceful porch were all well enjoyed. In addition to traveling throughout the island, we enjoyed the beaches close by, dinner at the farm to table Princeville Ranch, and the running trail alongside the golf course within the complex. Nearby grocery and basics as well as more options in Hanelei and Kappa. Thanks for a great stay!
We loved the condo, where do I start..... Views were spectacular! It is an end unit so you have both the ocean view and the mountain view, and they were equally beautiful. The remodel of the unit is gorgeous with high end finishes and comfortable furniture, we really loved the artwork. The kitchen is FULLY stocked with anything you might need to cook or bake. It was honestly stocked better than my own kitchen at home. There were some very basic seasonings provided but otherwise plan to shop at the Foodland nearby for whatever you need. The beds were comfortable with high end sheets. Plenty of towels, including beach towels. And talking about the beach there were beach chairs, boogey boards, snorkel gear and coolers (plus more). Did I mention the views..... I will miss the view! There was also soap, shampoo, conditioner provided. The complex itself was basic, the grounds were well maintained and pretty. It was very quiet in the evening which was nice & the neighbors were all super friendly. The pool was kept up nicely but not heated so a bit too cold for me to use in the winter (my husband swam) & I probably would have enjoyed a hot tub, but we didn't go to Kauai to sit at a pool so it worked for us. There was a nice guestbook provided on arrival that listed all of the local restaurants and shops PLUS bonus a bunch of activities that Shana and Jeff negotiated discounts for on behalf of their guests. Jeff and Shana were very accommodating during the entire planning process. I would definitely return and highly recommend this unit. Mahalo for sharing it with us.
We thank you Dana for such a lovely review of your stay. We agree, the View, the gorgeous remodeled interior and fully stocked kitchen makes for a Luxurious Kauai Vacation. We welcome your return.
This location was a last minute change for us because of the flooding that occurred in the spring. While it didn't have the direct beach access we wanted the views were amazing, it was quiet and clean and comfortable. We loved the upgrades in the kitchen and bathrooms and had a great 10 days here. If you walk down to the cliff and look down you can see the turtles in the reef, very cool. The pool is within walking distance and very clean, overall we give this place a thumbs up. We suggest trying Hideaway Beach and Sea Lodge Beach for snorkeling and get there early to have the place to yourself, including Queens Bath, were we also snorkeled, we were usually there before 7am, otherwise parking is impossible. Wear water shoes or tennis shoes, the climbing up and down the cliffs aren't easy, especially after rain. If you go into Hanalei trying the paddle boarding on the river, Hanalei Bay for beach access and breakfast at the Village Snack and Bakery, affordable and good, Hanalei Coffee is great too but expensive. Have fun! Thank you Jeff and Shana for the great condo, Nancy, Jeff and Deanna
Spent a great week here enjoying the views and trade winds. The condo was super comfortable and had everything we needed. Ocean views from both bedrooms are fantastic. It’s in a great location in Ali kai. Caught up on much needed sleep in comfortable beds with the sound of rain/waves and cool breezes. Only downside was the lack of a door in the master bathroom.
This is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed! Who has lush green cliffs with cascading waterfalls and oceanfront views? This beautifully decorated and very comfortable condo. Plus, we found a great hike to the Turtle Caves one building over! Could not wish for better!
This newly remodeled condo was wonderful! It was very comfortable for 4. It has the most AMAZING views of the ocean and mountains. We enjoyed our 8 night stay here. Our one complaint was that the kitchen had absolutely no cupboard/pantry staples - NONE. We spent quite a bit of our grocery budget on kitchen necessities that have always been supplied by other vacation rental owners. This was disappointing, but hopefully the next guests will appreciate that we left them with many of the basics for meal prep. Overall it was a great stay and I would recommend for anyone looking to stay in Princeville.
Condo is well equipped and nicely updated. Jeff responded promptly when notified of minor television issue. Great views! We did not expect to be able to see Mt. Makuna (Bali Hi) so a very nice surprise. Loved hearing the waves. Only improvement I’d recommend is window coverings for privacy and sun blocking.
Aloha, Thank you for your review. We have received and installed new window blinds on all windows.
Here is what I loved about this very clean condo: * Kitchen and bathrooms fully remodeled - beautiful. Kitchen very well equipped. * Liked that the shampoo/conditioner/hand soap were in large containers * Very comfortable bed in master - nice linens and towels * Lots of ceiling fans - and portable ones as well. * Lanai is beautifully tiled which made walking on it feel cleaner than just cement. * Beach chairs, boogie boards, toys in the first bedroom closet....everything you need. * Washer/dryer which allowed me to wash towels and our mud spattered clothes....we saw lots of rain. * View from the side window of Bali Hai was as awesome as the views of the ocean since we had more indoor time than we anticipated. What could be better: * Window coverings....there are none. We felt like we were on display since people walk out to this point for the view and turtle bay. It was a little unnerving undressing at night with the light on in the bedroom. We only had one afternoon with sun - but I was surprised at how hot the reflection was off of the tiled lanai. Also, the sun covered about 3/4 of the sofa at one point which made it uncomfortably warm and too bright to see. Temps were only upper 70's. Also, waking up early does have it's pluses but also minuses. * Time for new living room furniture. Loved the chair and ottoman - a place to put your feet. It provides the best view to the outside so it is broken in. The sofa is a 3 piece with one end having the best view. I flipped cushions and moved them around trying to achieve more firmness but they are a little dilapidated. The sofa sections do not line up well so I was constantly trying to re-position and push the pieces back together. * This is little stuff....but it makes a difference. Box of tissue in each bathroom. Coffee maker that stops brewing when you pull out the carafe...oops. I haven't see one of these in years. And we had to cut off the ends of normal size bread to fit in the toaster. * Be aware that the master bath toilet lacks some privacy. Since we had 2 bathrooms and there were only 2 of us, we each had our own personal space.
Aloha, Thank you for your review. We have received and installed all new window coverings throughout.
Property was quiet and kitchen fully equipped- we really couldn’t have asked for anything better. Unit was at the very end of the property with wrap around balcony - full ocean and mountain view’s. We will be back!
We thank you and are delighted you had a most enjoyable stay. We welcome your return. With gratitude, Shana & Jeff
