"When you read through all of the reviews, you might think they sound too good to be true. The fact is this Princeville condo is just as good as everyone says, and the photos just can’t quite capture the ocean views from the cliff looking out of the unit’s windows.
My family and I travel to Kauai’s North Shore about every two years, and this last visit was at least our 4th time staying in “Slice of Paradise". Although I have stayed in other units in Alii Kai in the past, I wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else now. Recently, we have been traveling with friends who stay in one of the buildings on either side. While these other units are OK, our friends are still always jealous of our corner views from this end unit
This unit is every bit as comfortable and well equipped as the pictures and reviews indicate. Evelyn, the owner, is a wonderful lady, and has always left some fruit or other gift for us at check in. This last time we were treated to a jar of her homemade pepper jelly.
For us, this location is just perfectly suited for all of our North Shore favorite spots. I won’t go into detail, because I am sure you can Google everything you need to find these spots, but some of our favorites are Anini Beach, Kalihiwai Beach, Hideaways Beach, Secret Beach, Hanalei Bay, and the Kalalau Trail and beach at Ke’e Beach . The trail to the turtle cave below the cliff in Alii Kai is just between the building for this unit and the one next door.
Enjoy a Bubba’s Burger or happy hour at Kalypso Island Bar and Grill in Hanalei. We also like the Lighthouse Bistro in Kilauea, and The Olympic Café in Kapaa if you are venturing down the eastern shore back toward the airport.
If you are planning to visit Kauai, I can highly recommend “Slice of Paradise” without any reservations whatsoever. I don’t think you could find a better more convenient location, a more comfortable or well stocked unit, or a more lovely, responsive, and accommodating owner. I am already looking forward to our next visit."
