Private Homes house description

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 gentle sound of surf breaking on coral in the pristine bay below - and delighted by the stunning ocean views from virtually every room.

Why stay here? You could choose a property at the beach - but you would be very unlikely to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet, or the breathtaking views, found on this unique oceanfront bluff.

Why Surf Song? Well, you may never want to leave the 1200-square foot tropical hardwood oceanfront lanai. There is not only an unbroken ocean vista, but a unique perspective above the sand, clear water and coral of the beautiful bay below. Sailboats and traditional Hawaiian canoes pass by. Nature's panorama is spectacular and fascinating. Dolphins frolic and turtles surf in the bay. Ocean rainbows amaze. In winter magnificent humpback whales breach offshore here. (We have tripod-mounted and hand-held binoculars). Albatross teach their young to fly from the surrounding bluffs. (They court and nest right in neighborhood). In summer, both sunrise and sunset may be enjoyed from the lanai.

Guests can now enjoy a soothing soak and a real massage in the his and hers loungers of the Dimension 1 Amore Bay Spa on the oceanfront lanai. They are said to be among the world's best Spas.

And what better place to relax and linger than 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.

The living room, 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 all new adjacent kitchen and dining areas allow 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 is also on the East side and has an ensuite half bathroom.

From June onwards, significant Spring upgrades to this already beautiful home will be available for the enjoyment of our guests. They include Tommy Bahama furnishings throughout the living areas and all bedrooms and a new quartz kitchen with wine fridge. (All major kitchen Appliances are already high end and new). 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.

Concierge services are available to assist with the many activities nearby. These include: Swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing,golf, tennis, horseback riding, boat tours of Na Pali, sport fishing, helicopter flightseeing tours, luaus, golfing and shopping.

(The secluded bay below the property may be accessed by footpath from a neighboring road, though the path is steep in places and at times slippery. We recommend the many easily accessible lifeguarded beaches nearby.)

The following guest reviews are on file with our former on- island agents:

Linda B., Santa Rosa, CA 11/09/2013
Views are unsurpassed both from inside the house and from the large lovely deck. We enjoyed hearing the surf at night-very relaxing. Lots of room for individual activities.

Steve and MaryJo K., North Platte, NE 11/14/2013
Beautiful views. Nice location and neighborhood. Privacy, comfort and space. 'Home away from home.'

Brad E., Hayden Lake, ID 11/14/2013
Great view and sounds of the ocean! Very clean with plenty of linens available.

                  Car: Recommended

                  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.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: We're a dad plus four family with ages from 11 up. Simon started professional life as a British barrister and has practiced as an attorney in Calgary, Canada for .... too long! Anna and Alexandra work in the hotel industry and property management respectively in British Columbia and the boys are in school. We come to Surf Song with a whole range of perspectives but we all think it's the best place in the world! We just purchased, so this listing is new, hence the lack of reviews. We are determined to exceed your expectations and make your experience completely positive. We think the repeat guests ….and the positive reviews... will follow!

                  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. Kauai's 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. Escape….Calm….Bliss...
