Property description

You'll think you're the first to rent this like new resort-style townhouse. This two-story condominium is an end unit with balconies and decks overlooking a tropical Hawaiian garden area giving you privacy and the feel of a free-standing home. The home was repainted in late 2013 inside. There are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the second floor and a separate den/office/game room with a queen sized sleeper sofa upstairs, as well as a conveniently located and separate laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer. You won't need to pack many clothes with this set up. Downstairs is a large kitchen with a round dining table that will fit 8 comfortably, as well as a relaxing living area with a new Flat Screen TV and DVD, and a half-bath to keep you from going up and down the stairs too much. A Brand New 2013 Chevrolet Traverse with seating for up to 8 is available with airport pickup and return included in the fee. See car in pictures.

The unit has central air-conditioning, but the ceiling fans throughout the house usually eliminate the need for A/C when you combine them with the daily tropical breeze. The Hawaiian air is so fresh. The master bedroom suite includes a Tommy Bahama bedroom set and a large relaxation area located inside next to the balcony. All bedrooms include an iHome AM/FM Clock Radio with an iPod docking station as well as broadband wireless internet service. The upstairs den/office/game room includes a printer/copier/scanner and Cable TV with DVD/VCR combo. There's also a collection of many movies (a special children's collection) and books to read as well. The home includes three separate lanai's/balconies, all excellent for relaxing with your morning coffee and a good book, or watching the sunset in the evening.

Championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. in 1971, the Makai course just finished a multi-million dollar renovation in 2010 and Golf Digest rated the Prince course as 'Hawaii's No. 1 Golf Course.” The course is actually within walking distance of the home.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am the first owner/occupant of this home and grew up in Palo Alto, California. I am a father of two grown daughters who also enjoy coming to Kauai as often as they can. I spent my career in various finance positions with technology companies in California.

Why the Owner Chose Nihilani:
I purchased this home after I discovered how beautiful and relaxing the Garden Island of Kauai really is. The North Shore of the island reminds me of Hawaii before it was commercialized and built up to be like many other cities in America. You won't find any tall buildings nearby, the traffic flows smoothly over a one-way, one-lane bridge down to Hanalei Bay and the entire island is filled with the Aloha spirit. It is a place you will want to return to as often as you can, some of my renters have done that several times.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This townhouse has unique views and gives you the feeling you are in a much larger home than the almost 1,900 square feet that it is. Across the street is the Makai golf course and a short drive away is the world famous Prince golf course. A mile away is the St. Regis (formerly Princeville) resort where you can enjoy being in one of the nicest resorts in the world. A 5-10 minute drive and you are at Hanalei Bay, ranked number one beach in America in the past. You have the choice of going into the old Hawaiian town of Hanalei with it's historical landmark buildings or going out to the ocean bluff where the brand new St. Regis resort includes modern architecture combined with luxury at its best. I sincerely hope you can experience the unique life style this area of Hawaii has to offer.
