"How do you stay on Kauai for one month on a budget? 1. Shop in Kapaa/Lihue at Costco/Safeway/Walmart. 2. Do fantastic free things--hit every beach and sunset. 3. Stay at Ken and Chloe's condo in Princeville. This condo was the key to our month long trip to the North Shore of Kauai. Two bedrooms. Our 11-year old stayed in her own room. Our 15-year old got the fold-out couch in the living room. Parents had the master bedroom. Fully equipped kitchen, including pineapple slicer--that was cool. Fantastic gas barbecue on the front lanai--we used this many times for fish, steak, hamburgers, pineapple, which saved a lot of money. Most condos have communal barbecues--not this one. The covered lanai off the master bedroom was great for morning coffee and watching afternoon rainstorms. We liked the geckos and chickens. (The roosters help get you up early and on to exploring.)
If you are looking for luxury at no expense, this is not your condo. We told our kids that we could have stayed at the luxury property next door for one week or Ken and Chloe's for one month. However, I looked up the rates later and it would have only been 4 days next door. (I am not going to tell you that the kids snuck in to the pools anyway.)
We hit every beach on the North Shore--particularly loving Tunnels (for snorkeling--you can park at Haena State Park beach and walk back), Lumihai (for boogie boarding/jumping off rocks--where South Pacific was filmed), Queen's Bath (a walk and hard to find parking for it in Princeville, but definitely worth the wait in summer) and Hanalei (for sunsets). You can walk from the condo down to Anini Beach, but the best beaches are a drive away.
Ken and Chloe responded immediately to our emails. They provided long lists/maps/details regarding the property and recommended restaurants/beaches/shops. Really excellent owners. We have stayed several times on the North Shore. I spend a great deal of time looking for a good reviewed property at good prices. This one is the best. And, as good as their weekly rate is, they have an even better monthly rate. So, the longer you stay, the more you save!
Any drawbacks? Not really. It is an older property. But, the grounds are well-maintained. We felt very safe. It would have been nice to have easier access to ocean views--we snuck on to the golf course around sunset (and also the luxury property next door).
Overall, this condo was the key to one of our best vacations ever."

"My husband and I stayed at Anini Lani Kai beach cottage for 6 wonderful nights in July-2015. The cottage itself is very,very clean and has everything you need. We loved the easy walk across the manicured back yard to the almost private beach! We used the beach chairs and snorkel gear everyday. Anini beach is also a perfect place to stand up paddle board. We rented a SUP board for 2 days of our trip and had a blast learning to stand up paddle. We also had memorable dinners in the backyard right next to the ocean. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need and the grill is in tip-top shape! One of our favorite evening activities was star gazing in the chaise lounges, AMAZING starry sky every night! We usually saw a shooting star about every 30 minutes. I had a terrific massage from Deborah on our 2nd day at the house (highly recommend). Deborah was awesome to work with and does a fantastic job managing this special place. This cottage was absolutely the perfect place for us to come unwind and enjoy gorgeous Kauai. The house does get a bit warm during the day, but we spent little time inside, so it was not an issue at all. The house cools down nicely in the evening and was very comfortable. I spent countless hours online searching for the perfect house to rent and I definitely found it. We hope to back again someday! Thanks for everything Deborah!

"My girlfriend and I chose this Cottage so that we could attend a wedding held on Anini beach. We could not have asked for more perfect accommodations. It was just right for our needs. We had beach chairs snorkel gear beach towels. This was truly the way to go for us over having to go out for breakfast lunch and dinner. Loved having a washer and dryer.You can walk to the beach .
On previous stays I have stayed in resorts but I'm convinced this is way better and certainly this property is one that we will return to
We spent our time there relaxing in mellow surroundings and I can't say it enough that it was perfect for our purposes."
