Private Homes house description
Hale Emmalani is a custom designed single story 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Princeville home. It is ideally located on a corner lot surrounded by mature coconut, banana, avocado, orange and lychee trees along with a beautiful lava rock wall. Hale Emmalani is a one-of-a-kind home that sleeps 6 to 10 guests. This home is about 1800 square feet featuring a very open floor plan with rare Hawaiian Koa wood trim. There are new Brazilian cherry wood floors throughout. The teak dining table seats 6 to 8 and the bar seats 5. The kitchen has been upgraded with new black granite counters, a corian bar, Italian tile floor and all new Jennair appliances. All three bathrooms are newly renovated with new tile and a huge Jacuzzi tub in the master bath.
The new guest house/pool cabana has a large outdoor shower overlooking a gorgeous 10x50 lap pool with custom rock patio. Five skylights and large custom windows make this home light, bright and airy. The backyard with lap pool has Bali Hai mountain views. There is a brand new gas grill on the patio. The house is fully stocked with kitchenware, full linens, hair dryers, iron and ironing board, vacuum, beach towels, 5 boogie boards, 6 beach chairs, 2 cruiser bicycles, helmets, 4 small kids bikes, paddle ball set, basketball, soccer ball, volleyball, two tennis rackets, yoga mat , big exercise ball, kick boards, pool ball and sand toys. There is also an eclectic dvd, book and game collection for your vacation pleasure. The washer/dryer is front loading and full-size. If it is a working vacation you’ll find an HP All-in One printer/copier/scanner at the small desk with a view of the lap pool. The lap pool has a salt water chlorination system - much easier on the eyes, skin and hair. There is wireless, high speed internet access. There is a Sony Bravia flat screen TV/DVD/CD in the living room and another flat screen TV in the master bedroom. There are also a portable MP3/Ipod docking station stereo and portable CD players.
Hale Emmalani is across the street from a beautiful park with basketball court and volleyball net. If tennis is your game there are public courts at the nearby Makai course. You could even walk (.5mi)to the Princeville Center shops and restaurants and playground. It is an easy drive to many of the beautiful North Shore beaches including Hanalei Bay beach and Anini beach. The Princeville beaches are 2 miles away and down some pretty steep paths. Hard to do with gear and little ones but well worth it for the fit and unencumbered. A personal concierge is waiting to set you up with activities like Horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, zipline tours and luaus. The Princeville Health Club and Spa offers day or weekly passes with relaxing spa treatments available as well as steam, suana and whirpools in both locker rooms. All of Princeville’s world class golf courses are within 5 minutes from Hale Emmalani. Did we mention the salt water lap pool? Ahh….

Highly Recommend Hale Emmalani!
Highly Recommend Hale Emmalani!
Cara was great to answer questions and easy to work with. She does prefer checks. Our safety deposit check was back to us very promptly after our stay. Hale Emmalani is in the best part of Kauai! The North Shore! And, it's close to St. Regis for fine dining and other shops, restaurants and activities are in nearby Hanalei. Queen's Bath is within walking distance. And, all of our favorite beaches were close to drive to. If you think the house looks good in the pictures...it's even better in real life. So, nice! The master bedroom is great, and we fit 5 adults in the jacuzzi tub :) We fit 3 couples in the house, with room to spare! Having 3 bathrooms was great to get everybody showered quickly after the beach or a hike. The kitchen and grill are great for cooking, and there's a super spacious fridge and freezer. Everything you need to play is in the garage. We found boogie boards, chairs, mats, towels, snorkel gear, a cooler, and one adult bike. There's also a great washer and dryer for after you play :) The salt water pool was awesome! Everyone's favorite part of the house. Hale Emmalani exceeded expectations in every way. We loved it! Thanks for a wonderful time!

Loved the House and Pool, Hated the Lumpy Beds
Loved the House and Pool, Hated the Lumpy Beds
We spent a week here in October 2012 and loved the location, pool, and proximity to shopping and beaches. Queen's Bath was a short drive away! The beds were lumply, uncomfortable, and the mattresses need to be replaced. The temperature of the electric range was also off and the food ended up being cooked unevenly. However, the grill was fantastic and we used it every other night. I will definitely return to Kauai and may stay here again if the beds are replaced.

Owner response: The BEDS ARE NEW! The mattresses are of high quality - the same as the finest hotels - believe me, we checked! And like the fine hotels we added Pillow Tops to the mattresses which were recommended to mold to the different bodies and add to the longevity of the mattresses. Perhaps it is the Pillow Tops that this guest found uncomfortable. But bed comfort is a subjective issue and inevitably our beds won't be to every guest's choice. We are very sorry this guest wasn't comfortable. Our goal is for every guest to be as comfortable in our home as we are. The electric range is also new - but electric ranges do heat differently than gas and can take some getting used to. Again, we are sorry this didn't meet this guest's expectations. This is the first we have heard this feedback. I take it personally when someone is disappointed in any way. We strive to take the best care of our property. We stay there regularly just to insure that everything stays in working order and is of high value. We truly love it there and want to share that with all our guests. Unfortunately, I feel the headline of this review is very misleading and could prove very detrimental to our rentals.I hope that is not the case.
Loved our island home
Loved our island home
My husband, son and daughter-in-law, daughter and son-in-law had the wonderful opportunity to stay at this beautiful island home on Kauai. It is in a great location on the island. The layout of the home was great for couples, lots of privacy and the kitchen/dining/living room were very roomy and great for hanging after a hard day at the beach. The pool was wonderful. At night when all the stars were out and the palms were swaying I can't think of a nicer place to take a quick dip just before bed. The separate master suite with the outside shower was my favorite. Becasue we were there 15 nights, we rotated rooms every 5 night so everyone had the opportunity to enjoy all the rooms. It rooms had something special to offer. The garage was loaded with all kinds of island toys. Beach chairs, snorkels and fins, pool toys and so on. We loved grill by the pool at night for a wonderful dinner amd family. Each night every one in our groups would share their most special moment of the day. Everyone had something different to say. I really loved that each night. The neighborhood is quiet and close to the Princeville shopping center. If you need something quick from the store, or perhaps have a sweet tooth for some Lappert's ice cream, you are in luck. I would highly recommend to anyone considering visiting the paradise island of Kauai to rent this lovely island home. The listing was as exactly descript as noted on VRBO. The photos don't do the house justice. The home was clean and well maintained. The owner was great to work with. There are so many incredible things to do on Kauai, everyone will leave with cherished memories. Mahalo Nui Loa, to the family of this wonderful island hale.

Truly, a dream vacation property you will never forget
Truly, a dream vacation property you will never forget
We enjoyed everything about this fabulous home during our month long stay, the pool, the bikes, the exquisite bedding and towels, the wonderful peaceful and quiet location, even the friendly neighbors and how about fresh Avocados and Oranges too. The kitchen is just fabulous and the washer and dryer make vacation life a whole lot easier. Did I mention the pool - we just loved it and 50 feet long - plenty of room for a family to play and/or swim laps at your option. The cabana was the perfect room for a brother who appreciated a little quiet time from the little ones now and then. The kid bikes and adult bikes were just great. Princeville is a stunning location - nears beaches and resorts - plenty of places to play - and the wide screen TV was great for footballs games and those couple days when it did rain on us. But that is what makes Kauai so perfect and green - no regrets. This was our home for our 40th wedding anniversary - you could not find a nicer place to take your family for a special event or just to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We highly recommend this home for YOUR family vacation.

Your home was wonderful. Thanks for having the great beach toys for us to use. The owner was great at answering my questions. I have already recommended this house to two friends. Loved the pool. Until next time Evelyn

Wonderful Vacation Home
Wonderful Vacation Home
My husband and I stayed here for 11 nights this October, 2010 [writing this on our last full day here, before we leave tomorrow]. The owners have really done a great job with this home. It's really lovely. *Everything* that anyone would need for their vacaion is here; very well appointed. For those who like 'memory foam' beds, it's heaven. The lap pool is a *huge* plus, and really made a difference for us as it pertained to relaxing here on the North Shore, where the weather can sometimes be precarious, and the surf may be too high for swimming. The location of this place is PERFECT. Princeville Center is *very* close by, and the short drive into Hanalei is STUNNING. At first we were hesitant to stay here on the North Shore, but after spending significant time on 3 of the 4 sides of the island, we were *more* than happy that we decided at Hale Emmalani. This is *by far* the best location on the island, not to mention the best 'bang for your buck'. Located in Princeville [an airport employee called this neighborhood the "Beverly Hills of the island"] one would not think of a property here as a good 'value'. Rather, one would think of this property as 'luxurious', and it *is*, but it's also a tremendous value. Hale Emmalani makes for a luxurious experience, without being pretentious.... Perfect. We would love to come back before too much time passes. We fell in love with Kauai, the people, the aloha, the relaxing vibe, the tranquility of this home and this beautiful, beautiful island. One last thing; We were members of RCI for years, owning a timeshare and staying in timeshares all over the World. We've also used VRBO a few times now, and want to say that this was *by far* the nicest home [timeshare or vacation home] that we've stayed in. Heads and tails above the rest. Peace and Aloha

An amazing experience
An amazing experience
Spacious, inviting, tranquil, comfortable...just a select few descriptions you can apply to this beautiful vacation home. Situated in a quiet neighborhood on a corner lot, Hale Emmalani was a wonderful respite after traveling in the cramped fuselage of a Boeing. Here we could stretch out and melt into our environment with our only concerns each morning being which beaches to visit and where to enjoy our meals. Meticulous hardwood flooring and matching shutters gave our temporary home a quaint feel which belied the modern conveniences of the kitchen, bathrooms and backyard. The jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom took up half the available space in there but could easily fit a quartet of people while the guest bathroom was attractively adorned with a unique counter design. Although the property was devoid of air conditioning, the abundance of overhead fans and the way the house was situated with its windows kept a constant cool breeze blowing. The "cabana" unit is nearly a self-contained studio apartment which was perfect for privacy or a lazy afternoon nap. However the centerpiece of the house is the lap pool...I swear the majority of the time we spent actually at the house was in the pool. It is a perfect accoutrement when waking up to a view of distant waterfalls amongst the mountain clouds then to slide right into liquid serenity before begining another day of fun and relaxation on Kauai. When the sun begins to dip into the horizon, we simply made our way back home (with a quick stop at the literally adjacent Foodland supermarket for supplies) to continue our aquatic activities then fire up the sizable gas grill for our dining pleasure. All in all, our trip to Kauai was absolutely amazing and staying here contributed to that greatly. Notes -Booking the our vacation was easy with Cara and she was very helpful in answering any questions I had. -The starting point for the hike to Queen's Bath is literally 5 mins away from the house. -The pool toys in the garage are great for goofing around in the pool.

"We had a wonderful time staying in your beautiful and luxurious home on Kauai! We spent a week with three generations of family -- the kids loved the swimming pool, games, and outdoor toys; the grandparents enjoyed the beautiful decor and convenient layout; and we appreciated the fact that the house had everything we could possibly need, in the most gorgeous setting! --The Boyce Family"

What a great home for a vacation! We love north shore Kauai and this house is perfectly situated - close to Hanalei, beaches, great hiking. Hale Emmalani is beautifully decorated to get you in the mood for island living. Everything you'll need is here. Want to pick up a few things from the store? Hop on one of the bikes. Want to go snorkeling at Annini or Tunnels? Snorkels, masks and beach chairs are all waiting here for you. Plan a picnic--what you need ia already here. The kitchen is great for preparing meals for friends and family while keeping you in the action. The private guest suite is perfect for company and the outdoor shower is convenient for after the beach. And if you have to combine work with pleasure during your stay here - as I did - you'll be happy to know that the wireless connection was great and there is a printer here in case you need it. The only problem is that you'll never want to leave.

About the owner: Hi, we are Richard Ruyle and Cara Newman Ruyle. We have three great kids and love vacationing in Kauai and hope you will too. We love the idea of sharing this unique beautiful home and location with others. We have lovely memories from this area and plan on creating more.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
The North Shore of Kauai has a tropical beauty found few other places. The friendliness of the people there, the beautiful beaches, the hiking, kayaking, surfing ...we could go on and on. The air is clean and healthy. The tropical rains that quickly blow through leave lush greenery and often double rainbows. We have enjoyed snorkeling and dancing the hula. We know others who relish the world class golf courses. We have felt drawn to this area and want to share that with others.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have not been in another house like this in all of Princeville. It features Hawaiian Koa would trim, accents and cabinets. The open floor plan is great for family vacations. The lap pool is the length of the backyard. The third bedroom is actually in the attached pool cabana with a queen size bed. The master bedroom also has a sliding glass door to the patio with a view of the lap pool. It is truly a place for relaxation as you re-adjust to the laid back tempo of the island.
