Private Homes house description

Enjoy spectacular, panoramic mountain and water views in this spacious 4-bedroom home on Kaua'i's North Shore. Prepare delicious island inspired meals in the fully equipped kitchen or enjoy fine dining in nearby restaurants. A perfect family vacation home! Kauai’s many natural attractions surround you. Dive in!

Keywords: Renew yourself in the splendor of 'Hale Ho’ole Hou' which means 'house to restore life'. We have been coming to Kaua'i for more than 20 years and have always referred to this beautiful, peaceful island as 'the Healing Place'. Our home is a peaceful, modern, private, 4 bedroom home on Kauai's North Shore, with incredible mountain views and a great view of Hanalei Bay from the upper level lanai. It backs up to a protected valley, and with the mountains beyond, offers a wonderful feeling of seclusion. The home features a modern, well-stocked gourmet kitchen, hardwood bamboo floors throughout, a private master suite with jetted tub, a wrap-around lanai with gas grill, and easy access to the best the North Shore has to offer. A short drive away is the sleepy surf town of Hanalei with one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Kaua'i is truly a magical place.

                            This home is beautifully decorated, equipped, and maintained. Our three generation family was very comfortable there, and it is so close to beautiful Hanalei Bay for the surfers and calm Anini beach for the toddlers. The kitchen is fabulous and we cooked and ate most of our meals there. We had everything we needed for the beach- mats, towels, umbrellas, toys, chairs, coolers, etc. the neighborhood was very peaceful, and quiet at night (except for the roosters of course, which is part of the Kauai experience!). The backyard is so gorgeous, and even has a tangerine tree, which we would pick and eat every day. The lady who came to clean each week was extremely nice and brought fresh flowers, more games and DVDs and made everything clean and pretty for us. We stayed three weeks and wished that we didn't want to leave! We enjoyed going to nearby Kilauea Lighthouse for wildlife viewing (whales, NeNe, red footed boobies, etc) and then a stop at the Kilauea bakery for their great food, and the Fish market for fresh seafood for dinner. Also, we enjoyed several good restaurants in Hanalei, and shops and rented gear (stand up paddle boards, kayaks, and surfboards) from the shop near the river in town. The Dolphin fish market was a favorite too- try their Ahi trimmings for more economical local seafood. The only minor issue we had was with two of the bedrooms, which had sliding Japanese type panels for doors, and these do not keep noises in or out, like crying babies or snoring adults! Those two bedrooms might benefit from more soundproof type doors. Perhaps not an issue for most folks, but we had 3 toddlers. We would definitely recommend this home to others and would love to stay here again ourselves! Mahalo!

                            My husband and I and our two children and spouses spent a wonderful week here in November. The house was very attractive and well-kept, and we were all quite comfortable. The design of the house is quite attractive, with bedrooms downstairs and an open kitchen-dining room-living room upstairs, with an overall feeling of great spaciousness and comfort. We had several good cooks in our group, including one professional chef, and we were all delighted with the well-provisioned kitchen--didn't want for anything. Although the path is not obvious, we were happy to discover that we were a 10-minute walk away from the beach by the Sheraton Hotel.

                            The house was great - beautifully decorated with lots of space and a nice kitchen. It also included everything that we needed for our vacation in Kaua'i - linens, coffee maker, pots and pans, shower gel, etc. There was even a complete set of beach gear - beach towels, an umbrella, snorkel gear, and an umbrella. The house was impeccably clean and we really enjoyed our stay.

                            It's hard to put into words how much we (5 high school friends) enjoyed this beautiful home on the beautiful island of Kauai. The views from everywhere were fabulous, especially of Hanalei Bay and the mountians from the main living area and great wrap-around proch. It has upscale amenities, is luxurious but so comfortable, stays cool with the wonderful island breezes, has a great kitchen to cook in (or just gather in), and has everything you need to make your stay easy and fun. It's in the heart of Princeville, yet is on a wonderfully quiet street. It's a quick drive to many beaches and a short (pretty) walk to a couple of nice beaches. It was great for our small group but would work perfectly for larger groups including children, teenagers, anyone! Wourld recommend this home to anyone. Thanks!

                            "Wow!" was the repeated response from each of us upon first walking upstairs and getting hit with the stunning views. The wows continued as we got acquainted with what quickly became home for our 10 days there. Here are a few of our favorite things: 1. The views cannot be overstated. Clearly this house was designed for maximum, unobstructed views of the emerald mountains, waterfalls, and Hanalei Bay from anywhere on the second floor. Pictures cannot do this justice. 2. Comfort: The floor plan is open with high vaulted ceilings, wood floors, picture windows everywhere, huge kitchen with absolutely every amenity for fixing a basic snack to preparing a holiday meal, and wonderful ventilation. There was always a wonderful cool breeze day or night and plenty of room for the seven of us to congregate or to find one's own space for some private time. 3. Private location: Unlike most homes available in Princeville, this hale is at the end of a residential street and not on a golf course. It is surrounded by lush tropical plants with nothing but mountains in the background. From our lanai we could hear the surf from Hanalei Bay and we awoke to the sounds of countless little birds every morning (an very few roosters). 4. Rental experience: The owners and their property manager, Liz, have gone out of their way to make this house effortless so that we as their guests could focus on our vacation. They put much thought and effort into providing every imaginable amenity that one might want or need. Every inquiry before we went was met with a quick and courteous response as were any made while we were there. If you are new to renting a vacation home, go for it as this is the one to beat!

                            The house is beautiful and very well equipped. Located in a quiet, residential area with easy access to the lovely north shore of Kaua'i. The house was very clean, the beds comfortable, and all the appliances, electronics, etc. were in good working order. A well-kept house, with care and attention to details to make our stay comfortable. The owner is approachable and attentive, making us feel as if this home was our home for our stay. A great kitchen - large, with everything you could possibly require and more. The dining area is outstanding - especially in the morning with the sun coming up over the mountains....very nice. Greatly appreciated the laundry room, beach towels and matts and outside shower. We were a large group of three generations and the house worked well for us. But be aware that the kitchen and living areas are upstairs with the bedrooms below, so noise can be a factor. We had to sync our schedules with the toddler's! This is a lovely property for a restful, fun holiday in Kaua'i. I would certainly recommend it.

                            Perfection. Nine of us were comfortable in this home--plenty of common space and private space. Kitchen layout allowed for many people preparing food simulataneously. Views from the deck are exquisite. Listing description was accurate. Property was clean and well-maintained.Would recommend this property. Enjoyed the Hanalei beaches, kayaking, hiking at the canyon, shopping in the farmer's market, purchasing food and cooking in the fabulous kitchen

                            Beautiful! Stunning views! We stayed at this property right before Thanksgiving. We had 6 adults and a one year old. The house was perfect for all of us. It was so nice to eat as a family each day at the beautiful kitchen table and sit on the porch and enjoy the views. I cannot decide if I like the waterfalls and the lush mountain views...or the beautiful ocean views better from the house! Liz the property manager was great. Property has pack and play and also small high-chair if you have babies with you! We will be back and refer this home to everyone going to Kauai. Thanks for making our stay wonderful!

                            This was the most wonderful vacation property I have ever stayed in. The home, itself, is amazing. From its elegant design to its beautiful art work, it must be seen to be appreciated. Pictures do not capture the warm inviting atmosphere this home provides. Additionally, this home provided all the comfort and privacy required by our group of 8 adults. The house was very well appointed, the kitchen has all the ammenities, and is spotless. Eating in was so enjoyable due to the large cooking area, and the beautiful dining room. With all the superlatives I can shower upon the home, the most spectacular attribute is the view. The view of the waterfall from the dining room and the lani is a knockout. With rainbows almost everyday and many times a day, you are never sure in which direction to look. The owners provide a list of alll the best places to visit including activities to dining, but do yourself a favor and reserve a few mornings and afternoons to just relax on the comfortable lani and take in the constant, soft tropical breeze and view. Hanelei Bay Town Beach is just one of the many beautiful nearby beaches but make sure you join the locals at this shore each night for a gorgeous sunset, just 5 minutes from this property. We will be back!

                          About: We are empty-nesters and enjoy sharing our Kaua'i home with our 3 kids, their spouses, and our 3 grandkids. Richard is retired and loves to golf. Donna works as a consultant for a large international firm. We enjoy playing on the beach, are learning how to paddle board in Hanalei Bay, love to hike, and most of all, relax in the sun and warm Kaua'i breezes.

                          Why Private Homes:
                          We have been visiting the North Shore of Kaua'i since celebrating our 10th anniversary here more than 20 years ago. We have always dreamed of having a place of our own on this beautiful island and recently, that dream came true. To us, Kaua'i has always been a place of renewal and healing.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We love the panoramic views, the birdsongs, and hearing the rain at night. We love to go to the beaches on the North Shore and then stop in Hanalei for drinks and pupus before we head on home for a fresh Hawaiian dinner on the lanai. The fresh fish market in Hanalei is a must stop each morning to pick up the night's grill. We love to go to Hanalei Bay around 6 PM and walk along the beach, joining the locals who have a ritual of meeting to watch the sunset together. It is a joyous event when we get a glimpse of the green flash just as the sun makes its final dip into the ocean. There is really not a more beautiful place on earth! Most of all, we enjoy the perfect Kaua'i temperature, not having to do a thing to warm up or cool down since we're nearly always comfortable. Our home is a place to kick back, relax, and soak in the warm trade wind breezes and let the healing begin!
