Private Homes house description
There are 3 lanais, 2 upstairs and 1 downstairs. Lanais are accessible from their adjoining bedroom. Three bedrooms have either a queen or king size bed, as well as adjoining bathrooms. The fourth bedroom contains 2 sets of bunk beds. The layout allows the cool ocean trade winds to flow through the home and there are ceiling fans in every room, including the outdoor lanai's. Travertine floors downstairs, granite countertops throughout, hardwood flooring upstairs, and carpeted bedrooms combine to make this home both comfortable and luxurious. The home is furnished with a built-in refrigerator, gas cook top, oven, microwave, dishwasher and six burner gas BBQ. We have a 50 inch wide screen HDTV, Cable and a number of DVDs, books and games for your enjoyment. Broadband internet access is available at no charge (wired/wireless). A computer work area with an All-In-One (printer/fax/scanner) machine is available. Free LD calls. Great beaches are within minutes of our home in Princeville
Golf: If you love to play golf there are 45 great holes at the Princeville resort -- you can purchase multi-day passes either at the Course or by purchasing the Golf Hawaii card and save a lot of money on green fees.
The home is within 2 minutes drive to the Makai course!
Beautiful Princeville home tucked away in a serene Kauai neighborhood.
Welcome to Hale Pakele for a home away from home! This place is beautiful and offers all of your creature comforts in a fabulous location. We highly recommend you choose this place for your next Hawaiian vacation:
The owner is amazing. John was super nice, helpful, and easy to reach before, during, and after our stay.
Enjoy walks or runs along a scenic paved trail bordering a nearby golf course.
Bunk beds offer plenty of space for up to four children to sleep comfortably. Our two children had ample space to play in the early morning while we slept downstairs. What a treat! (especially in those first few days adjusting to the time difference)
Kitchen is completely stocked. Nice ceramic plates for dining contrasted by casual sets for kids or eating outside. Enough oil, salt, tea, coffee, etc. to get you through the first few days (although we recommend a stop at Walmart and Costco after leaving the Lihue airport). Walk in pantry neatly organized. All modern stainless steel appliances. Sharp knives. Great wine glasses. Try the built-in griddle for pancakes and grilled cheese. Décor is beautiful.
Laundry machines are large and reliable. Easy to quickly wash and dry everyone’s clothes. Detergent is supplied for your stay (not always the case so it’s a nice touch).
The owners don’t supply Beach trip accessories, but we found previous renters had supplied them! We found a wide selection of tools to build sand castles, beach chairs, snorkeling gear, aqua socks, and clean beach towels (which the owners do provide) in good condition. There was also a nice cooler!
There are three outdoor patios, or lanais, to enjoy this luscious scenery and cool breeze in their comfy furniture.
Outdoor barbeque and bar with patio chairs and table where everyone can grill, drink, and eat together.
Enjoy the open spaces downstairs where you can see everyone cooking in the kitchen, sitting at the dining table, and relaxing in the large comfy sofa and chairs watching cable on the flat screen HDTV. You can do your thing and stay together at the same time. Easy to talk across the rooms, watch kids while you cook, or just do your thing.
There are three rooms that could all qualify as master bedrooms! They are awesome. The bed in the true master bedroom downstairs, where we slept, was super comfy and the giant extended shower was spa-like.
There is a desk and table upstairs fit for a computer if you need to work while you’re here. Fast, free Internet. Easy to work, upload pictures, etc.
What else can we say about this property, except that you probably aren’t staying long enough! To that point, if you are planning an extended stay in Hawaii, Hale Pakele is a great choice.

About the owner: John and Sydnie grabbing a late dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: Our family first started travelling to the garden island of Kauai approximately 10 years ago. After a few years of visiting we decided to pick up and move to the garden island and eventually had a home built on the North Shore of Kauai, in the quaint community of Princeville. The home was designed and built as a vacation rental home so we could share the surroundings with our valued guests.
