Our unique one-bedroom oceanfront condominium is located on the bluff at Pali Ke Kua in Princeville, on the beautiful North Shore of Kauai. It's perfect for a couple looking for some privacy. Our condo has a panoramic view of the Pacific, Hanalei Bay, Bali Hai, and the Na Pali Coast. The view is spectacular! Access to the beach is down a short private paved path. At the beach you'll find tide pools that are home to a wide variety of plant, marine, and animal life. You'll see large green sea turtles, and in the winter months you can watch humpback whales. The endangered monk seals even pay us a visit from time to time. This area features beautiful skies, a multi-colored ocean, beautifully colored fish, exotic fragrant flowers, and temperatures that range from the mid-seventies to the high eighties year-round. And at the end of your day you will witness some of the most beautiful sunsets you could ever imagine. The senses come alive in this environment.
The kitchen is light, bright, and fully equipped. The living room and dining area look directly out to the Pacific, Bali Hai, Hanalei Bay, and the Na Pali Coast. The bedroom has a very unique four-poster, pineapple-carved queen bed. Ceiling fans are present throughout. Adjoining the bedroom is a bathroom with an over-sized shower. In the bathroom you'll find a washer and dryer. Princeville is a luxurious, peaceful, resort community with perfect views. Princeville is also home to both the Prince and Makai Golf Courses. In one direction, just two short miles away, is the quaint small town of Hanalei. And in the other direction is Kilauea, home of Kauai's lighthouse and National Wildlife Refuge. Majestic mountains and some of the best beaches and hiking trails in the world surround the North Shore. Activities are abundant including hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing, shelling, sunbathing, whale-watching, fishing, horseback riding, and helicopter rides.
I have been to Kauai 6 times, and this is by far my favorite stay. I've been on the north and south shores, and I think from now on, now that I've found unit 116 at Pali Ke Kua that I am a loyal north shore fan. This unit is a prime unit in the complex, and the best in the building because the cliff is cut out right in front of the lanai to see the expansive water below. This gave us great views of the surfers morning and evening, while others in other units had to walk out from their lanais to see the water below because of the cliffs.
The unit has everything you need - towels (beach and bath), fully-equipped kitchen, fans in every room, comfortable bed, quiet location. The complex has a very nice, clean pool that we used often, along with a hot tub that helped ease the ache from our long hike!
The walk to the beach below is steep, and we weren't able to get in the water from here (not at this time of year - November - anyway), but that didn't keep us from exploring all the other sites/beaches that are so close by: Queen's Bath, Hideaways, Secret Beach, Tunnels and Ke'e.
When it did rain, it didn't last long, and three mornings of our stay brought beautiful rainbows, right outside our doors.
I could go on and on, but I want to get back to the view that is just above this screen as I type - Bali Hai. We will be back as soon as we can!!
