"Our 5th trip to Hawaii and the best yet and a lot of that due to the wonderful week we stayed at this great cottage. Perfect location, nice open floor plan comfortable bed and everything a person could need and more. Our hosts took very good care of us and we definitely will be back in the future. I can't say a negative thing as it was a great place to stay, relax, swim and snorkel. I hate to say how wonderful it is because it might make it difficult for us to book the next time. A wonderful little 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 picked this cottage so that he could try fishing north shore Kauai beaches while I enjoyed the jungle scenery. The location was perfect for both activities, and we made good use of the provided beach chairs. Access to several beaches was just a short drive. Having a washer and dryer and a small kitchen was great, and we loved the privacy (even with another family in the adjoining larger cottage), and the private porch. We would have liked a nightlight or another way to illuminate the step down into the bedroom for moving about at night, but we appreciated the air conditioner for those of us from cooler climes. The friendly tomcat living under the cottage was also a plus for us and we enjoyed him. The setting was very lush and verdant and the bushes screened the cottage from the nearby road quite well. We would definitely recommend this little cottage (good for a couple) and would stay here again."

"We are a family that has traveled quite extensively. The Nakea home was wonderful, just as described, only better. The only downside was our stay was but one week. We are already planning a return visit which cannot be too soon. Mahalo"
