Property 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, avocado and lychee trees along with a beautiful lava rock wall. Hale Emmalani is a one-of-a-kind home that sleeps 6 in beds and up to 10 guests adding the sleeper and/or aerobed. 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 & LG appliances. All three bathrooms are newly renovated with new tile. While there is a jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom - it is not entirely practical on the island, utilities being as expensive as they are there. Our hotwater heater is solar and if it hasn't been sunny for an extended time you might not have enough hot water to fill that enormous tub! We suggest the great showers, the pool or that warm beautiful ocean nearby as a better reason to book our home!

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, 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 lush 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….
Bedding: 1 California king, 1 European king (or two twin extra longs-just let us know what you prefer), 1 queen in the pool cabana, 1 queen sleeper sofa, 1 queen aerobed mattress, 1 queen Coleman air mattress, 1 twin air mattress.
As is custom with vacation home rentals we provide you with a starter supply of paper products, soap & detergent -but then you are responsible for your own supplies.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

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.
