"We have stayed here twice now ( once to get married and now for our anniversary)and feel this is the best spot on the island! The house in located in a private beautiful coconut grove all complete with a hot tub where you can unwind and listen to the ocean, the birds and take in the natural beauty. The home is so cozy and has everything you need. Sheets are so soft and both beds are so comfortable! The location is so prime...convenient yet so private. We hope to be back manyore times...this spot is so healing and the perfect haven to take in the magic of Kauai. The owner, Ric is very quick to respond to any questions! Thanks for making both of our trips so perfect! We feel we found a gem!"

"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 have been coming to Kauai for almost 30 years. About 20 years ago, the property manager for the Fortune Cottage (Therese) saved us when we rented another Anini cottage that was a nightmare. She had an unexpected opening at the Fortune, we moved in and we have been coming back ever since. Therese is gracious, accommodating and is quick to help! The cottage is perfect for a couple. The master bedroom has a comfortable bed and is open and airy. The second bedroom is perfect for storing all of your gear! Nice kitchen and exquisite views from the living area. The only thing that would improve the house is a covered lanai (it is nice to be outside in the sun or rain). Thank you, Therese, for 20 years of bliss at Anini!!!!!!!!"

"My husband and I stayed at the Nakea Beach house for 6 nights and would definitely stay there again. Anini Beach is not well-known to most tourists so if you want a more private experience, this is it. The house has an incredible vibe, soaring ceilings, epic views of the aqua ocean from the windows and then there's that huge deck. We ate every meal out there. I love that it is at the end of the road and there are great places to walk to along the beach. And if you choose not to go into town you wan walk up the mango trail to the small Princeville market located inside a Hotel for some canned goods or gourmet grub. Therese and Cliff were both great. And the house has everything you will need."
