Puu Poa condo description
Considered the very best of all 56 units in Kauai's best condo - 2,180 square feet of completely private (only the moon & stars can look down on its penthouse level ocean decks) space, including 830 square feet of ceramic tiled oceanfront lanais left open to the sky to enhance the incredible views and trade wind flows. Almost all rooms, due to 412's prime location within the arcing design of the Puu Poa complex, face directly straight-ahead toward the legendary Bali Hai vista with fantastic sunsets. As we all know - in real estate, the three hallmarks are : Location, Location, & Location. Our Puu Poa Penthouse 412 is in the finest location at Puu Poa, period....
The dramatic advantages of 412's precise location within the Puu Poa complex are very clear if you will view our Virtual Tour of our residence via the website link given below. Please do take the time to carefully observe the Bali Hai & Hanalei Bay views all of our Guests enjoy and why they spend so many hours on our two large open ocean decks....
This unique CENTRALLY AIR-CONDITIONED penthouse corner end unit sits at the ocean edge on two sides, affording 270 degree views of the ocean through window walls from living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, and two lanai decks. This simulates the same feeling as standing on the captain's bridge of a modern ocean liner with extraordinary vistas in many directions.... Unique huge sloped picture window in dining room, two kitchen windows give additional views of the ocean, surfers, migrating humpback whales, fabulous rainbows. It is no small wonder then why Bruce Stark, the famous U.S. real estate developer - builder of Puu Poa, chose not to market our Penthouse # 412 and kept it as HIS PERSONAL HOME ON KAUAI for the first six years of existence before it became ours to enjoy and share with Guests as YOU....
This advanced degree engineering graduate - PH 412 owner chose to keep both of our ocean decks open to the sky and their spectacular Bali Hai direct frontal views, rather than impede the flow of the trade winds and obscure those fantastic views with a metal and glass/plastic structure that would serve to trap excessive solar heat loads inside, affecting the comfort of all interior rooms....
Carrier CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM quietly serves all rooms, delivered by hidden in-wall & ceiling insulated large ducting, evenly controls 412 at guest's selected temperature and comfortable humidity level. This is NOT a wall-mounted add-on 'ductless' A/C system, nor use of 'room' air conditioners. PLEASE REALIZE the CONTROL of BOTH TEMPERATURE and HUMIDITY IS IMPORTANT ! High-end ceiling fans in living room, dining room, both bedrooms are alternative means of comfort control when favorable trade winds and moderate temperature & humidity exist; allowing guests to open window walls to enjoy soothing sounds of ocean waves breaking on beautiful Hideaways Beach immediately below (visible from our 412 ocean decks !).
This prime penthouse unit has 9 foot or higher ceilings in all areas, and features 20 foot high living room cathedral ceiling with unique stained glass celestory windows - providing an extra sense of spaciousness, additional light, and more precise climate regulation.
Deluxe plumbing fixtures, including double width side-by-side whirlpool bath with precise thermostatic & blower electronic controls, 40 square foot showering area with 7 sprayheads, extensive mirrors (Bali Hai is visible from the showering area, whirlpool bath, & toilet !), two head main bathroom shower stall, quiet extra large capacity Affinity front-loading quality electronic washer & dryer, deluxe one-piece toilets, 80 gallon & tankless water heaters, ultra large corian kitchen sink & bath vanity, two lightweight cotton waffle robes in each bath, beach towels in linen closet for your use at ocean & pool.
Custom designed high end furniture to fit the geometry of each 412 room, beautiful fabrics, and original artwork including huge Sapphire Blue nine section living room sofa, 12' tall Bali Hai living room tapestry, four panel dining room koi mural, unique Hawaiian Koa wood cabinets in kitchen & dining room that were custom built on site, master bedroom king sized platform bed with backlit shoji screen wall featuring koi-etched glass panels. Heavy glass dining and cocktail height tables & chairs, two chaise lounges, two deluxe rope-slung relaxation chairs, 11 foot diameter hotel-quality market umbrella, large commercial stainless steel 220 voltage electronic barbeque on the ocean decks.
Latest technology 64 inch high definition 3-D Samsung Plasma television in living room with TiVo-like time-shifting HD digital video recorder, Blu Ray 3-D DVD player, six speaker Mirage surround sound array; 32 inch Sharp high definition LCD flat screen TV in master bedroom with Yamaha 41 speaker surround sound bar and DVD player, 26 inch Samsung high definition LCD flat screen TV in second bedroom; all 3 TV's with 250+ channels, 100+ high definition channels. Separate Yamaha-TEAC-Niles-LogiTech home stereo system with universal iPod docking station selectively delivers music via in-wall speakers to lanai ocean deck, living room, dining room, kitchen, both bedrooms with discrete volume controls for each area. Library of 100+ DVD's organized in living room's revolving rack includes many films shot locally on Kauai. Library of 50 music CD's. Variety of 75 hardcover books for those who wish diversion at beach or pool. Several board games & playing cards. Quality telescope on tripod and two sets of binoculars.
Glass contemporary dining room set with six comfortable leather chairs dramatically overlooks through massive picture window the ocean reef & coastline. Bali Hai and sunsets are also visible from the dining table. Two-line cordless telephones in dining room and master bedroom, and second bedroom has useful big button speakerphone - all three provide our guests with unlimited free long distance service within the U.S. and Canada. Answering machines at each phone gather incoming messages for you.
Deluxe large bright kitchen with two windows (because of 412's superior ocean end corner location) also overlooks the Pacific in two directions, is fully equipped with all manner of large & small appliances. Detailed list appears below in the kitchen 'Features' section.
Widespread use of seductive recessed lighting --- in living room cathedral ceiling coves, over huge sectional sofa, over koi mural in dining room, over Bali Hai painting in living room, over kitchen counters & electronic cooktop, and over master bedroom headboard jungle painting & koi-etched frosted illuminated glass panels. Remote controlled Japanese lantern and rope lighting on both ocean decks add romantic touches. Dramatic dimmer-controlled blue starlights surround the master bedroom king-sized platform bed.
Second bedroom substantial glass desk with H-P newer desktop computer, ultra high speed internet access, 22 inch H-P widescreen flat panel display, H-P LaserJet printer, Brothers fax machine with third phone number for guests to stay in contact with family & friends. Spare toner cartridges are available for both the printer & fax machine. Daily newspapers are delivered to 412's door for your reading pleasure.
Hopefully these comments document for our readers the great attention to detail we have focused on this situation to fully enhance the travel experience of our prized Guests. Consistent with this approach we spend the considerable time needed to keep our posted Availability Calendar updated so viewers of this website are fully informed of when our home is indeed available for your booking.
The owners, Eleanor & Richard Goode, have enjoyed sharing our home in paradise with now far over a thousand honeymooners & visitors for over 20 years; many who have returned time and again to relive past memories and create new ones....

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST UNIT IN ALL OF PRINCEVILLE
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST UNIT IN ALL OF PRINCEVILLE
We stayed at this unit in July 2013. Everything that is said and written about the unit and owner are absolutely true! The views are amazing, the amenities in the unit, everything is as advertised. An example of how above and beyond the owners will go is that they have a 3D television set and they have 4 headsets - in the same basket they had replacement batteries for the headsets!! Truly they have thought of everything in the unit to ensure comfort and convenience. The views are beyond amazing and the convenience to all on the north shore is great. Dick - we wanted to thank you again for being such a great host and allowing us to stay in your "little piece of paradise!" We looked at a few other units in the buildings of Pu u Poa and none compare to 412… We will be sure to return!!!

Owner response: Dear Dawn & Kenneth from Long Island, New York --- Thank You So Much for your kind comments about our Kauai residence that we were thrilled to share with you. We are so pleased that our home lived up to your many expectations, as that is something we strive for with every couple that chooses our 412. We now hope we might be honored by your return visit in the years to come. Dick & Eleanor
Best Condo in Puu Poa, great for couple or two
Best Condo in Puu Poa, great for couple or two
My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights, and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay to round out our two week trip through Maui and Kauai. Puu Poa is located in Princeville on the north shore conveniently near Hanalei (within driving distance). This condo will blow you away when you walk in the door. It's bigger than it appears, has incredible space, and is incredibly comfortable. Dick has clearly spared no expense to make certain that everything is in place to assure a perfectly smooth stay for the guests. The condo was perfectly clean upon arrival, and exceeded our expectations. The best part about this condo is that it's on the top level, and on the corner, so you get 180 degree views towards Hanalei to the west and towards the east. The other condos don't have that view. The condo is fully stocked, with instructions for use on everything in the condo. They even have a 3D TV, though you'll be outside exploring for most of the time. It's possible to sleep with the balcony doors open at night so you can hear the ocean. Some condos had enclosed the balcony, which we weren't interested in. It's clear that Richard, the owner, is making investments to continue to upgrade his condo. If you were to ask me for a critique, the only thing that could perhaps be upgraded in the future is the upgrade of the master bathroom. Though don't get me wrong, it's a super nice bathroom with an open shower and jacuzzi tub, just has a few years on it, that's all. Either way, this place is worth it, reserve early because it sells out. Enjoy the amazing sunsets on either deck, you'll be spending a bit of time out there. Oh, and don't forget to check the snorkeling out on the beach below Puu Poa, called Hideaways...perfect little beach, often all to yourself.

Owner response: Dear Nick & Sarah from Baltimore - Thank You for your most gracious comments ! They mean so much to us as we do get such a thrill sharing our Kauai residence with wonderful Guests as you. We were particularly grateful for your fantastic feedback on our home which we will utilize to enhance the visits of our other incoming couples. Thanks so much for making the effort to file a review of our rental property. Please remember to call this your home on the Garden Island. Dick & Eleanor
As first time visitors to Hawaii, my husband and I found this beautiful condo and surrounding land and views to be nearly impossible to improve upon. The owner, Dick, provided a significant amount of information for us to review prior to our arrival. We were able to sort through the places to visit and things to do on Kauai at our leisure so that we could begin enjoying our vacation right away. The kitchen was well appointed which allowed up to prepare most of our meals in the comfort of a home. We traveled with great friends and found there to be enough room for 2-3 of us at a time to share responsibilities. Dick was also very open to providing information to us as we requested it, always in a timely manner. We were extremely pleased with the accommodations.

Our Greatest Vacation Yet
Our Greatest Vacation Yet
My wife and I just returned from our week in Kauai. Such a beautiful island from end to end. Without a doubt, I can say that the highlight of our Honeymoon was our time spent relaxing in the comforts of our Penthouse viewing the Bali Hai. From the moment we saw the beautiful double carved glass entry doors, we knew we had just arrived in paradise. As others have said in their reviews, everything you have seen so far in the pictures are completely accurate. We knew we were in the right spot when people were coming to admire the view we had every day from our lanai, from down the street. The penthouse was in excellent condition and everything that is conveyed in the rental posting is completely accurate. It is amazing the length of detail that has been put into every aspect of their home. As music lovers, we especially enjoyed being able to listen to our music in multiple rooms and even outside while stargazing at night. There is no way to fully convey the exceptional care and hospitality we received from Dick and Eleanor. From start to finish, our questions were answered so promptly and with such warmness. It is clear that they want not only their guests, but anyone who communicates with them, to have the greatest time possible on Kauai. Mahalo from the bottom of our hearts. We can't wait to come back!

Fabulous Penthouse 412 Stay !Guest comment entered by owner
Fabulous Penthouse 412 Stay !
We have been fortunate enough to enjoy a week at Puu Poa 412 and it was a most amazing experience. This was our 20th Anniversary trip and we wanted something EXTRA SPECIAL.... The Goodes have done a great job providing their guests with every luxury and convenience. The North Shore was where we spent the majority of our time and we fell in love with the little town of Hanalei. We lunched at the Dolphin one afternoon and watched the kayakers/paddle boarders go down the river. Had cocktails at the Kalypso one day and also the Hanalei Café. Both very nice & friendly. We especially enjoyed the Limahuli Botanical Gardens since we love to garden in Salt Lake City. Enjoyed the catamaran tour of the Napali Coast and guided waterfall hike with Princeville Ranch Adventures. The beaches were spectacular --- our favorite snorkeling was actually right here at Hideaways Beach ! We tried Tunnels Beach one afternoon, but we both agreed our Hideaways had the best fish ! The binoculars provided in 412 allowed us to watch two seals eating breakfast below the kitchen windows. The appliances/sound system worked great. A vacation we will NEVER forget. It was simply "the best" !

Wonderful relaxing stay
Wonderful relaxing stay
What a view ! We stayed for 2 weeks during August 2013 and loved the location as well as the hospitality and overall welcome we received from Dick and Eleanor. They were able to answer all questions in a very timely manner and were extremely responsive. Everything was very well cleaned and maintained and directions/instructions were provided well before our vacation started as well as a copy of the instructions within the unit itself. We all enjoyed the Bali Hai view with our morning coffee and evening drinks, what a way to start and end your day. We found the location convenient for exploring the North Shore and the various beaches (Lumahai and Kaliwihai were our favourites). I would gladly stay again and highly recommend it for a relaxing and stress-free vacation. We’ll be back !

We arrived to find the penthouse with awesome views, beautiful decor, and great amenities. The property owners are the best to work with as they provided me with great travel advice and on our day of departure let us stay later in the unit due to a flight delay. They are great people and have a lovely home to share. This is a great location....pool, great beach, and walking distance to the St. Regis for dinner, drinks, or a visit. Princeville Center with small shops and grocery within 5 minutes. Great town of Hanalea is 10 minute drive with great restraunts....Tahiti Nui (as seen in the Descendants), Postcards Cafe, Bouchons, and many more...

Beautiful condo, GREAT VIEW!
Beautiful condo, GREAT VIEW!
This unit is all it's described and then some! We stayed 8/18-8/24. It has everything you need to make your stay very enjoyable. The views for the sunset were absolutely the best! Every evening my wife and I would watch the sunset, then grill some terrific tasting fish and savored the stars over Kauai. It was my wife's dream to be able to stay at 412...and we were not disappointed. Dick - the owner - was a great to work with. He is prompt in his replies and there were the little touches that made it even more special! But, I'm not going to share...we want you to be surprised like we were! The view to Bali Hai are unbeatable. We have some pictures of sunsets that still have us wishing we were there! Things that set this unit apart are - Dick's level of service to you; the view; the view; the view; and the condo itself. It is clean, comfortable, and all you need is on hand to cook, various snorkeling gear, tennis rackets, etc...towels...did I mention the view? You are close to a number of beaches on the north shore; plus you're a short hike down the cliff to Hidden Beach which was great. Just bring your desire to live Aloha, shorts, t-shirts, swim wear, & sunscreen...and you'll have the makings for some great memories! We would love to be there to watch the whales sometime too! So until next time Dick...Mahalo & malama pono!

Great, great property and experience!
Great, great property and experience!
We spent the last week of October 2010 at this property. Our experience was outstanding! First of all, there is not a better location on the Island -- with quick access to beaches, golfing, hiking, restaurants and the St. Regis resort. The unit has a beautiful lanai off the family room with stunning views of the ocean, Bali Hai and the Napali Coast. On our first morning, we enjoyed a show of spinner dolphins frolicking in the ocean! The unit has a telescope for your use, which is amazing. The photos on this website give you an accurate sense of the condo. It is in good condition with great amenities. We cooked every night and had all the equipment/utensils that we needed. The property was clean and well maintained. A word about the owners -- very helpful and incredibly responsive. Our questions were always answered very promptly and were useful. They helped accommodate some of our more unsual requests. We want to give a special thanks to the owners for their attentiveness and help. We highly recommend this unit.

Owner response: Dear Matt - Your compliments are too kind. Our job assisting great couples as you are is stress-free and a wonderful delight. We are so pleased that your expectations were met as that is clearly our prime goal. We hope your visit created many positive lifelong memories of Kauai and its grand North Shore.
I have been visiting Kauai nearly every year since 1975 and have stayed in everything from hotel rooms, to condos, to private homes (including Billy Jean King's home), but have not found anything that matches the beauty, convenience, amenities, and outstanding floor plan that Pua Poa #412 has to offer. My wife and I just completed our second stay at Puu Poa 412 in early June, and it was even better than the first stay in 2008. The owners, Dick and Eleanor Goode, have thought of including everything you can possibly think of in their condo to spoil you during your stay. It is now difficult for us to think of going back to Kauai ever again and not renting this unit. I spend days each year looking for just the right place to make our annual vacation in Kauai everything I want it to be for my wife and me, but often it is difficult to know what you are renting based on the information and photos on a website. Many landlords and rental agencies exaggerate and overstate the quality of the amenities or create a false impression of a rental unit's view. I had great expectations for our initial stay at Puu Poa 412 after our first booking of the condo, as it looked almost too good to be true. My concerns were quickly replaced with a giant smile and a "high five" with my wife on that initial visit when we opened the front door to the lanai entrance and saw that view of Bali Hai. We continued to be amazed as we walked through the condo and found everything even better than we imagined. I haven't had the privilege of meeting Dick and Eleanor but have been communicating with them via email since our first stay and I can't say enough about their kindness and "good old fashion caring" for their guests. I hope to meet them face to face on a future visit to Kauai so that I can thank them personally for sharing their most beautiful home on the most beautiful island in the world. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any doubts about being a future guest at Pua Poa #412. Mick and Alex Anna Colorado Springs, CO
