Private Homes house description

Located on Punahele Point, one of Princeville's most desirable neighborhoods, Hale Pukana La (the House of Sunlight), offers the ultimate in tropical living! Situated on a bluff above the ocean, the house features water views from the seating area in the front yard and is only a few steps from the perfect Bali Hai and sunset viewing area above Hanalei Bay (Punahele Point). With three master suites, this house is ideal for larger families or couples traveling together. Architectural notes include cathedral ceilings, skylights, ceiling fans in every room and graceful columns surrounding the sunken living room and adjacent family room. This really is a magnificent house, with fine art, beautiful furniture, and a gourmet kitchen. Two of the suites feature king beds and walk-in closets, the third has a queen bed, and there is a giant bean bag chair that converts into a queen-sized bed in the family room (perfect for kids - or adults - it's really comfortable!), two inflatable queen mattresses, and even a Pack 'N Play for infants. There are five TVs, three DVD players, a very large assortment of DVDs, several guide books on Kauai, two CD players and a surround-sound Bose system in the living and family rooms. One bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub and another has a large step-down shower and double sinks. We are the closest house to the path to Queen's Bath and the beautiful waterfalls you pass on the walk down to the ocean - through a gorgeous tropical jungle.


Location is Everything! Hale Pukana La is located on a quiet cul-de-sac above Queen’s Bath, a natural lava pool filled with tropical fish and protected from ocean currents during low tide. The path to Queen’s Bath runs from the property. It is less than half a mile to the St. Regis Resort with incredible restaurants, a nice bar, breathtaking views, and a gorgeous beach which is open to the public. Punahele Point, only a few houses away at the end of our cul-de-sac, offers truly spectacular sunsets and a perfect Bali Hai vista. World-class golf, tennis, island entertainment and idyllic sandy beaches are nearby. There are miles of hiking and bike trails, wildlife refuges and botanical gardens. You can arrange for a private guided jungle hike, waterfall excursion, jeep adventure or helicopter tour. A large playground and the beautiful Princeville library are less than a mile away. The Princeville Shopping Center provides groceries, movie rentals, shops and dining for all tastes. We also have a housekeeper who lives right in Princeville, so she is available to quickly address any issues.

The Fabulous Fun Closet - We Offer Something For Everyone!: What is a “fun closet”? It is where we keep all sorts of fun items for your vacation enjoyment: coolers, boogie boards, snorkel sets, a surf board, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, a couple of bicycles, portable grill, beach bags and mats, plastic glasses for the beach, travel mugs, beach toys, and other items. (The beach items and bikes are kept in the garage.) We also have free WIFI, lots of board games, chess sets, playing cards and puzzles in the dining room closet, and a hammock and gas grill available for your use at the house. There are five TVs (one in each bedroom, one in the breakfast nook and one in the family room), three DVD players, a large assortment of DVDs, a few music CDs, a Hawaiian cook book, lots of novels to borrow, and a few tourist books on Kauai. Items do change due to guest use, but the number of fun items only increases over time! This will save you time, energy and money - no need to bring these items from home or rent them on the island!

We also provide free high speed wireless internet. There is a nice desk in one of the master bedrooms, complete with a printer and copier just in case you have to do a little work while in paradise (like I sometimes do...!). There is a gourmet kitchen complete with a Belgium waffle maker, coffee grinder, crock pot, high end cookware, vegetable steamer, two blenders, a double oven, and two rice cookers. Eat in the formal dining room or in the kitchen nook. We also have a large gas grill, seating for 8, and a comfortable hammock outside. There is a Jacuzzi tub in one of the bathrooms and a step down shower in another. Perhaps the most perfect spot to watch the sunset in all of Kauai is only a half block away, at the end of our cul-de-sac at Punahele Point. Punahele Point also offers whale watching during the winter months and a gorgeous view of Bali Hai. Hale Pukana La caters to many tastes with something for everyone! This is paradise!

                                  Welcome to Paradise! From the house you can easily walk to Queen's Bath, a unique, naturally-formed lava pool filled with tropical fish, or drive to gorgeous nearby beaches or the charming, artistic town of Hanalei. Local activities include golf at the famed Princeville courses, swimming, surfing, hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, horseback riding, zodiac tours of the majestic Na Pali coast, tennis, boating, whale watching (Dec - May), kayaking on the placid waters of the Wailua River, helicopter tours, wind surfing and zip-lining. Golfers know that the Prince Course is rated by many as the No. 1 course in Hawaii, and the newly renovated Makai Course is getting rave reviews since it reopened! Other attractions include many wonderful restaurants, local artists, historic Hawaiian sites, stunning sunsets, breathtaking waterfalls, traditional luaus, and visits to Waimea Canyon, known as the Grand Canyon of the the Pacific. Your vacation here is limited only by your imagination!

                                  Other Activities: The house is truly beautiful with fine art, comfortable furniture and a wonderful location. Here are some extras that set us apart:

                                  *We have a housekeeper who lives in Princeville, so she is readily available if there are any unexpected problems.

                                  *We have a large kitchen stocked with all sorts of items which allow you to be a gourmet chef while on vacation, including a variety of spices, oils and salts. There are local farmers' markets all over the island to supply - and inspire - you.

                                  *We provide a full size washer and dryer, detergent and bleach for your use, and an ironing board and iron for those nights you will be visiting one of the incredible local restaurants. We recommend Bar Acuda, the Hanalei Dolphin, Bouchon, Neide's Salsa and Samba, and Postcards for dinner, Hanalei Gourmet, Tropical Taco, Bubba's Burgers, and The Mediterranean Gourmet for lunch, and the Hanalei Wake-Up Cafe for breakfast. Live music - and great drinks - are featured several nights a week at Tahiti Nui.
