'Best organized and best stocked rental house ever.' 'The comfort and convenience of Hale Kipa made our trip very special. ' 'This was the ideal house for our vacation' 'What a beautiful, peaceful and welcoming home it is!'
The equivalent of three hotel rooms in a Princeville Vacation Rental, for less than the cost of one nearby hotel room. For three couples, each has the privacy of their own master bedroom, and also the luxury of a large living area, looking out on golf course, mountains, ocean and waterfalls, to share with family or friends. For extended families, the house accommodates up to twelve, depending on ages and relationships.
A large living area is just up the stairs of this spacious house which is 3400 sq ft under roof. Upstairs, enjoy panoramic views of ocean, fairways, mountains and waterfalls. Walk out on one of two lanais, and enjoy fresh tropical evenings as the sun sets behind Bali Hai across the bay.
King size beds in two of the bedrooms and two doubles in the third. A daybed in the Living Room. Two futons for extra guests or extra family. A crib for infants. Upstairs, a 'great room' of Living, Dining, and Kitchen areas, with windows all around, and two decks. Gorgeous views of ocean, mountains, waterfalls, and golf course. Directions provided in our own 'coffee table book' to all the best restaurants, snorkeling beaches and shopping, with sample menus and comments from past guests. A fully equipped kitchen large enough for three cooks to work in harmony, or walk to one of three nearby restaurants. Fully equipped with bed, bath and beach towels and linens, beach mats, and a library of paperbacks for that 'lie on the couch and do nothing' day. Books and toys for the 'little ones'. A DVD library of movies made on the Island of Kauai.
You will have use of Sunset Drive Community Association Recreation Center across the street. This excellent facility includes a clubhouse, swimming pool and tennis court.
Guests say: 'It's a beautiful thing when a place lives up to its billing' (The Nickels, Denver, Colorado).
We have been told many times by our guests that it feels like home, not like a vacation rental, and that has been our goal.
From GOLF MAGAZINE's Gold Medal Resorts 2004-05:
Princeville Resort Kauai, Hawaii
Shangri-la (n.) 1. A distant and secluded hideaway, usually of great beauty and peacefulness. 2. Princeville. Framed by sheer mountains that plunge into azure water, Princeville enjoys Kauai's most divine setting............................. as if the tranquil Hanalei Bay were in your own backyard. Robert Trent Jones's Prince course is a wild child, stretching 7,309 yards and often slashing its way through deep thicket. The Makai ('towards the sea') presents three nines -- the Ocean, Lakes and Woods -- that are more player-friendly. Playing early improves your chances of nabbing a patio table at the Living Room, where the sushi is always fresh and the sunsets are never less than dazzling.
You Said It: It has everything -- ocean, mountains, waterfalls.... The most opulent resort I've experienced.... The lounge at sunset might be the most beautiful place in the world.

Area: The Princeville Resort, on the beautiful North Coast of Kauai, is renowned for its golf, luaus, and spirit of Aloha, The resort overlooks Hanalei Bay, and was the setting for the filming of 'South Pacific', Bali Hai is across the bay
Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: Retired Navy Captain.
We live half time in San Diego, CA, and half in Kailua, Oahu.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: After I retired from the Navy, I worked for Rockwell International in Orange County, CA. One day I was stuck on the freeway in the smog, thinking to myself 'Why am I here in the smog, doing about ten miles an hour, when my son lives in Paradise (Princeville, Kauai)?'
A week later, I called Rick, and proposed that we get together, buy a lot in Princeville on the golf course, and build a Three Master Bedroom Vacation Rental. I had heard a Real Estate Agent there say 'I sure wish I had a three or four master bedroom house to rent!'
So we did!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Snorkeling, basking on the beach, gazing at the amazing scenery of the North Shore of Kauai. Sitting on the front deck watching the sun set behind Bali Hai.
