Stop press!: Surf Song was named in July 2015 by Pride of Maui magazine as "One of the top 10 Wedding Locations in the Hawaiian Islands"!!! See below for more details.
“…Heavenly. We could not have found a better spot for a family holiday on Kauai”.
(When the bi-fold glass panel wall is open) "The living room becomes part of the deck overlooking the Pacific. It was an absolutely beautiful setting for our family activities".
"There is a huge ocean view from 2 bedrooms as well as from all living areas. It kind of feels like the house is actually over the ocean".
Whale sightings were an everyday occurrence, and the soothing sounds of the ocean made for the most relaxing evenings.”
Were not saying this; our guests are in the reviews below. Check out our all-new professional, un-retouched photographs, and see for yourself how spectacular Surf Song really is. And in July 2015 Pride of Maui magazine named Surf Song in their "top 10 Wedding Locations in Hawaii!"

Surf Song is, simply, a fantastic place to stay. When you first arrive at the very end of your peaceful, exclusive cul-de-sac and glimpse the fabulous location of Surf Song and the ocean beyond, you will know that you chose wisely. On entering the home, you will be greeted by the expansive ocean view shared by almost all the rooms in the house, and the gentle sound of surf breaking on coral in the pristine bay below.
Why stay here? You could choose a property down at the beach - but you would be unlikely to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet, or the breathtaking views, found on this unique oceanfront bluff. And the path to the beautiful and little used beach below the house begins a two minute walk from the property (about 10 minutes to walk down to the beach from the house in all. )
Dolphins and turtles may be seen up close in the bay - the turtles actually surf sometimes! In winter magnificent humpback whales breach offshore here. (We have tripod-mounted and hand-held binoculars). Albatross court and nest right in neighborhood and teach their young to fly from the surrounding bluffs. In summer, both sunrise and sunset may be enjoyed from the lanai. Sip coffee and watch the dawn. At sunset, enjoy a tropical beverage and watch the changes in light. In the evening, dine al fresco under a spectacular canopy of stars, all with the sights, sounds and fresh air of the ocean filling your senses.
Enjoy a soothing soak and a real massage in the custom his and hers loungers of the new Dimension 1 Amore Bay Spa, said to be among the worlds best.
The living room, all new kitchen, and dining areas also enjoy spectacular direct ocean vistas. The master and second bedrooms share these views, and all bedrooms give the wonderful experience of being lulled to sleep by the sounds of surf and palm trees in the breeze. Dawn brings a chorus of birdsong from the hill below the house.
Inside the bright, open 2300 square-foot home you will find a layout centered on an expansive living room the centre point of which is a fully screened Nana wall which opens fully to the ocean side lanai. The gleaming, all new adjacent kitchen with cafee cabinets and white quartz counters allows the chef to join in the fun.
Two bedrooms and a full bathroom with tropical shower share the West side of the house. The master bedroom and ensuite full bathroom enjoy ocean frontage on the East side. The fourth bedroom with Twin beds is also on the East side and faces the garden on two sides. There are two outdoor showers, one on the garden side of the house and one on the ocean deck.
All new Tommy Bahama furnishings have recently arrived! A wine fridge has been added to the kitchen. Our aim is simple...to be the best.
Surrounded by nature though it is, Surf Song lies only a few minutes’ drive on quiet, private roads from all of Princeville’s superb amenities.
This is our home, found after years of searching on the islands. It is the loveliest place to be that we know. We welcome you to it with Aloha. Our mission is to ensure that, like us, having discovered it you will want to return again and again.
Relax in the knowledge that unlike some offerings, this is a long-established, licensed vacation rental in the Princeville Visitor Designated Area with a caring and involved owner and under the scrupulous professional management of the Principal Broker of a local real estate office (who manages only a very few select properties) together with a dedicated professional team of cleaner, groundskeeper and maintenance personnel. We all care very much about your vacation rental experience, as the 5 star reviews show.
Concierge services available include: Private chef, massage, private yoga on the Lanai, and private tours or assistance with the best booking of all Kauai's attractions such as horseback riding, boat tours of Na Pali, sport fishing, helicopter flight-seeing tours, luaus, and golfing.
(Please note: Neighbors' construction is completely finished, both house and landscaping. No noise, just great neighbors and a discreet, low-lying one storey home. Our ocean views are unobstructed. All photos shown were taken after neighbors' construction was finished).
Safe, level property. Ocean side deck is railed in to code. Spa cover can be locked in place. Quiet cul de sac perfect for biking, skateboarding or ball games (adult supervision needed as cars do come down to see the Abatross and hoping to see ocean views, though these are only visible from private properties such as Surf Song.) ...moreless

Surf Song is all on one level and wheelchair accessible from the front driveway into the level of the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining room and rear garden Lanai.

Serene and private location at the very end of an exclusive private road, yet within walking, biking or short driving distance by private roads of Princeville's many amenities.
Several beaches are similarly close, while many more lie within a 10 to 15 minute drive including life guarded beaches with vehicle access.
It is hard to overstate the abundance and quality of outdoor leisure activities within a short drive of the house. Shopping, yoga, massage, dining in a large variety of restaurants and bars and entertainment are close at hand.
You may find however that you share our reluctance to leave Surf Song and that much time is spent enjoying the amenities of the house and the spectacular beauty of the oceanfront Lanai.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Were a dad plus four family with ages from 12 up. Simon started professional life as a British barrister and has practiced as an attorney in Calgary, Canada for .... too long! The girls work property management in British Columbia and the boys are in school. We come to Surf Song with a whole range of perspectives but we all think its the best place in the world!
We are in the business of exceeding your expectations and making your experience completely positive. We want happy guests ...who will keep coming back.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: After several years of serious looking throughout the islands, the decision to buy this property was instant. It was simply the best property we had ever seen. Kauais North Shore eclipses in beauty anything we know and has so many wonderful beaches, but the land largely consists of a flat bench ending in an oceanfront bluff. Few private homes are located on the bluff, while even fewer look directly down onto a beach, coral and surf. We are sure you will agree that Surf Song is rare and stunning.
We had rented frequently on the North Shore before we made this purchase. We found being up on the bluff much more private and quiet than being right by the beach - and we love the views.
We also came to appreciate the many different micro micro climates of the North Shore. Trade winds freshen and reduce humidity. Rainfall is often less away from the mountains - yet some beach areas are very close to them and as a result, we feel, may be more humid.
We felt that the right ocean bluff home could offer a perfect combination of almost constant breezes and lower rainfall, of peace and convenience. We think we found it!
Surf Song does all this in a timeless, classic Plantation style which invites elegant, easy living and an open plan which celebrates the beauty of its environment and invites in the perfect climate outside.
For us it was love at first sight! We've seen our guests react in the same way. We hope you will too.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The sound of surf as you approach the house - and throughout it. Ocean views from the front door to the master bathroom. The expansive tropical hardwood oceanfront deck offering both Sun and Shade at most times of the year as well as a tranquil shaded rear Lanai.
A bright open floor plan with room for everyone and separation between the master suite on the East side of the home and the bedrooms on the West side. The experience of beauty, nature and peace.
Dolphins and turtles year-round, whales and albatross in winter, stunning summer light. A heaven full of stars.
