This house was great and was the highlight of our stay in Kauai. Plenty of space indoor and out for our family of 8. The house was very spacious and comfortable. Plenty of dishes and utensils for cooking and grilling out. We enjoyed eating out on the porch/patio. We used the bikes and some of the swim gear. Highly recommended!!
The property is beautiful. Very clean. Quiet neighborhood but close to shopping and beaches and hiking. Tons of beach toys and supplies in the garage. We used it all. Also a garage fridge which came in handy. This Home is in excellent shape. Kitchen utensils and supplies are very nice. We cooked a lot. We also used the grill and it worked perfectly. It was quite hot the week we were there and we wished for AC but we were told it never gets that hot and no one has AC. There were plenty of fans including ceiling fans in all the rooms. One unexpected feature is one of the bedrooms is off the garage. We were not expecting that (maybe it was on the listing but I don’t remember seeing it) however it had a window AC unit so the people who slept there ended up being the coolest in the house. All the other rooms were very nice. If you are thinking about renting this one don’t hesitate. It’s as good as it looks and maybe even better because of all of the beach toys and such.
We had a wonderful stay at Jeff & Shana's home. The house is gorgeous throughout. Well maintained, beautifully decorated, clean, with colorful lush greens surrounding the house. Couldn't asked for a better place on Kauai. Appreciated all the subtle conveniences and beach supplies in the house. We spent a lot time discovering the nearby beaches and the town of Hanalei (15 mins). There is no air-conditioning so open the windows & turn the fans on high. My only wish for perfection would be air-conditioning, especially on a hot & humid June summer day. The garage side bedroom does have a small wall unit A/C. The lanai was our favorite to sit in the early morning. For dinners, we mostly used the grill. Worked perfectly. Wifi however was very spotty and slow but so was the TV service (switching between channels takes 30-40 secs). Fortunately, we were not in Hawaii to use electronics. All in all, this house is truly a slice of paradise with beautiful scenery and modern conveniences. Highly recommended, and would love to come back here!
Wonderful property in an excellent location to access the North shore sites. A truly aloha feel! Very well equipped home with lots of space indoors and huge covered deck with a tropical feel outside. Our family enjoyed our time and would highly recommend this property. Thank you for having us!!! Brian, Judi and Family
The home is beautiful. We enjoyed the wrap around deck. The layout of the home was perfect for our group of eight. Our adult kids and their spouses loved the nearby beaches. They hiked to Queen's bath, Hideaway Beach, and Secret beach and loved them all. Thank you for sharing (renting) your piece of paradise.
We were a family of six adults and two teens. The house had plenty of room for us all! We dined out on the porch at night and enjoyed the use of the bikes, boogie boards, and water shoes during the day. We were a little concerned about living with no air conditioning for the week, but the breezes through the doors and windows kept the home at a moderate temperature as we were mainly there only during the evenings. It was a beautiful, well-kept home and we enjoyed our stay very much!
We so enjoyed our stay in Princeville. This home is just as it is represented, beautifully decorated, open plantation style and was the perfect getaway for our family. We originally planned for 8 adults, which would have worked just fine. 6 were able to come. This home boasts the most inviting covered deck around 2 sides of the home. It's where we spent most of our time. There is plenty of seating, the yard makes it very private, but not secluded. It's the perfect combination for early morning breakfasts and just enjoying the soft rains any time of the day. We LOVED IT ! ! ! ! The rooms, bathrooms and living areas are so lovely. We all felt like we had the house to ourselves. With a large living area, a great TV (my son and hubby were so happy) we all enjoyed our private areas as welll as being together with ample space to move around. The extra room with 2 small beds would be perfect for kids in the early teens ... small kids would probably not love being off the garage, but my 21 year old loved having his privacy with his own bathroom and bragged about having air conditioning. The main home doesn't have air, but you don't really mind with the fans and opening the sliders for the deck. Makes it very nice inside. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of cooking/baking needs. We loved being able to cook at home, or go out to the local diners and were not disappointed with the selections. Overall, we so enjoyed our time here in Princeville. Jeff and Shana were very good to work with, even allowed a few extra hours to check out with our very late flights out. Thank you so very much for a very special getaway for our family. We will definitely be back.
The Burke family enjoyed your home very much. Just two notes: 1. the brown/white wicker couch on the lanai has a middle leg that is about to give out. 2. The "check out" instructions in the home entry way book are different than the instruction I received in an e-mail. So, I hope we did things correctly. Thank you for this lovely stay. Pat Burke
This home was so clean and beautiful! We had a group of 8 adults staying in this house and it was comfortable for everyone. Quiet location (except for the lovely roosters) and in walking distance to a grocery store, food, and treats. The lanai was perfected for dining and enjoying the beautiful view each morning, especially when seeing a rainbow almost every day. The kitchen was well equipped with all the dishes and pans you would need, including plastic containers for storage. It was wonderful to have laundry soap and dish soap available to us as well. The best feature was the ocean accessories available to us during our stay.....boogie boards, towels, beach chairs, and mats. We would highly recommend this house and appreciate how well it is taken care of.
Aloha Rich, we are absolutely delighted you and your guests had such an enjoyable experience in this Gem of a Home. It was our sincere pleasure to host your Kauai Vacation. We welcome your return. With gratitude, Jeff & Shana
The place was perfect for our group. We made great use of the lanai which had a beautiful mountain view and allowed us to enjoy the outdoors even when the weather had turned. The garage was full of all kinds of things for beach activities. They even have bikes and lots of baby gear which we needed for our twins and would have otherwise had to buy once we arrived on island. The house didn't have AC, but we found it pretty easy to cool off by opening the large sliding doors to the lanai. My only negative feedback is that the owners/manager seems to have some mixture of justified fear of damage and unrealistic expectations for their guests to maintain the property. A list of house rules is a good idea and was provided, but there were laminated sheets of rules and instructions printed or repeated throughout the property that we found overly distracting at times (among these are instructions for cleaning the grill that I would say most well used grills only need once a year). In addition, the instructions to add foil to the bottom of the catch pan could even create a grease fire under the right conditions, because it would prevent grease from draining into a grease catch under the grill. That said, given the length of our stay, we decided the time required to clean the grill was balanced by the amount we decided to use the grill, but I can see other parties deciding not to take advantage of this fantastic feature simply to avoid the cleaning hassle, which could affect their overall satisfaction. In addition, it was unclear to us whether it was on us to pack up our recyclables and take them to the recycling center ourselves or if the can was there for our use and the expectation was for the cleaners to take them. Who wants to spend vacation time making trip(s) to a recycling center? Despite the minor annoyances described above, we were very pleased with how well furnished the house is and wanted for very little during our stay. I suppose you can't always have such a nice place to stay without careful and attentive maintenance. It's an incredible location. We would recommend this property to a friend.
This is a Wonderful, Peaceful & Spacious Home. There are no unusual instructions for the BBQ. The BBQ is cleaned after each completed reservation by the Housekeeper. We wish you had reached out to us during your stay so we could have conveyed this information. The BBQ is a wonderful feature of the home! With gratitude, Shana & Jeff
The house is exactly as the ad claims. It is nice, quiet, well-equipped, and well-located. Sleeping: We were 5 adults and 2 kids and the house provided comfortable accommodations to all. The bedding was comfortable and clean. The evenings and nights were quiet, except for the occasional rooster, which is part of the Kauai experience. In April we did not need the A/C. We just left the windows open. Windows have screens and we have not been bothered by mosquitoes. Eating: The kitchen is well-equipped, even for 7 people. Appliances are modern and functional. We mostly used the BBQ on the outside deck for convenience. There is a grocery store within walking distance from the house. Location: The house is within 20 minutes driving of most Princeville area attractions (Ke'e, Tunnels, Hideways, Hanalei, Light house, etc). It's about 45 minutes from Lihue (airport) and about 2 hours away from the furthest point on the island (Polihale state park). Most of what we wanted to see was on the North shore so it was perfect for us. Some final thoughts: The house is a good fit for quiet people. It's not a "party" house. It comes with rules that did not bother us (no shoes inside, use the hose outside to wash sand off before entering house, etc) but it could be a bad fit to a younger/party-seeking crowd.
Thank you for your review Ivan. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. Yes, it is true, this is in no way a home for parties. This Gem of a Location is nestled in the Heart of a Quiet residential neighborhood in the North Shore. We welcome your return. With gratitude, Shana & Jeff
I like to write about how our group used a rental to help others decide if it is a good fit for their group. We had 3 adult couples and 2 young children in our group. We prepared most of our meals during our week long stay rather than eat out or order in. We did out door activities for part of all the days. The washer and dryer were a real help because with messy kids and outdoor activities, we always had a load of laundry by the end of the day. In the full kitchen, we ran the dishwasher about twice a day because we would have dishes and meal prep clean up for our large group. The dishwasher kept us ahead on our clean up. The house is clean and has a large central room that was comfortable for our group. There are roosters in the neighborhood, so they might wake you up in the morning (that seems pretty standard for all of Kauai). We ate most meals outside on the deck, which has space, privacy and a nice table for a group dinner. With the 4th bedroom being attached to the garage, we felt separated from the young kids staying in that room. The beach chairs are in good condition and very useful. The hosts had very good communications and they were able to respond to any pre-arrival questions quickly. Check in is very easy. Staggering showers is helpful because sometimes we ran out of hot water in the mornings. There was room on the driveway for our 3 cars. Street parking is not allowed in the neighborhood overnight (we received a note on the car saying so). All in, it was a good rental and a good value. We would return to the rental again.
Our adult family of six had not visited Kauai in many years. We had no trouble finding the house following the comprehensive instructions received. The house was as described and felt very roomy for us. The spacious lanai was outstanding and we spent time daily on it having drinks before dinner. The location of the house on the north shore was perfect for us as the beautiful beaches were within minutes by car. The Princeville Center was within walking distance and the Foodland Grocery had all you need. The manager Shana was very responsive to our needs. I would highly recommend the property.
Our family had a wonderful stay here. The house has a great layout, with the kitchen connected to the living and dining area and the huge lanai. You can't beat the location. Princeville has all the amenities you need, with a park, shopping area, bars/restaurants, walking/running paths, and golf. Plus, it's around the corner from Hanalei, which is our favorite spot on the islands.
My wife and I as well as our two adult children and their spouses stayed here and had a lovely time. The home is perfectly located for access to all the North Shore's treasures. Though we were out and about most of the day, it was a beautiful place to come back to. Exactly as advertised and very clean, which is very important to me. The kitchen had everything we need to prepare meals. Nice bathrooms and beach towels. Ceiling fans in every room. The large wrap-around lanai was my favorite place to relax and barbecue after a full day of adventure. Jeff and Shana were extremely responsive and helpful. Everything was perfect!
I highly recommend this property for anyone who is visiting Kauai. It was the perfect place. Plenty of space for our large family, price was right, the house was super clean and it was located on the best part of the island. I've been to Kauai 3 times now and this was by far the best place I rented. I really hope you consider renting this place on your trip....you won't be disappointed!
