"Given any opportunity, we would rent this home again. The owner is very responsive. I had many, many questions ahead of time, and she patiently responded to them all. The house is old and charming. We spent the majority of our time on the screened lanai. The location is fantastic for all activities on that side of the island. The towels and bedding were high quality; the kitchen had everything we needed. We had six adults and an infant, and there was more than enough room for all of us. Everything was clean and well-prepared for us.
Having said that, some aspects that may not be quite what you want: The home is old. To us it was charming; to others it may not be. It has been lovingly renovated, but there are uneven floors, oddly placed electrical switches, and a few other quirks that didn't impact our visit, but may bother others. The upstairs got very warm during the afternoons, to the extent that the folks staying up there, didn't use their rooms. There are small window air conditioners, but in the heat of the day, that wasn't enough. We really weren't in the house enough for it to matter; downstairs remained comfortable all day; the evenings/nights were fine. There is quite a bit of new home construction along the side road. Traffic was pretty consistent right next to the house, but it was one car at a time and completely stopped by late afternoon.
It's Hawaii -- it rained every day; there are bugs (some quite large and "interesting") everywhere; the red dirt really will stain a shirt!
If you're looking for a family-friendly home to rent, this property will provide you a unique experience in a prime location."

"My family stayed at this adorable house in October and loved everything about it. The house was clean and comfortable with all the amenities that we needed. We especially liked the touches of a pack n' play for my infant son, beach toys to enjoy and bikes to use if we wanted. The view of the huge front yard and river from our front lanai was awesome. And you couldn't beat the location! We really loved being a block from the beach that's not crowded and being able to walk to Hanalei town also. We would definitely stay here again!"

"This was our 3rd time to Kauai with each stay on the North Shore. We had a larger group this time and this home fit us all perfectly. The home is fully updated, modern, and well taken care of. Everything was pristine and free of dust and dirt that you normally find in a lot of homes on the islands. The furniture was clean, not stained and comfortable to relax in. The kitchen was stocked with all the basics that you would need including a decent selection of spices and an extra fridge in the garage when you are overflowing from your Costco run. The garage also had buckets and sand toys for younger kids, sets of snorkeling gear, his & hers bikes, and half a dozen boogie boards.
You can see a nice view of the mountains and the waterfalls cascading down them from the house or take a 5 minute walk down the street and watch the whales from the top of the cliff overlooking Queens bath (or hike down to Queens bath and enjoy a dip in the tidal pools.)
The entire Princeville area is amazing. The beauty of this area and how relaxed it makes you feel is why we keep coming to Kauai. Less than a mile away (and easy walk) you have the St. Regis resort for spa treatments or to just enjoy a Mai Thai during sunsets on their Lanai overlooking the Hanalei bay. Or take a leisurely stroll on the walking path around the golf course to the Princeville shopping center where you can get your groceries at the Foodland (think Safeway or Albertsons.) In the same area is a public Library, mail center, a couple places to eat, some small shops, an Ace Hardware, and CJ's (a fancy sit-down to dinner restaurant.) Everything you need/want is a short walk, bike, or car ride away.
I cannot not say enough about this property or the owner. I almost didn't want to write a review or say anything about this place for fear it will just bring more people and not leave any availability for me when I return! But John and his cleaning staff deserve it. They were wonderful! Easy to work with, quick responses, and bending over backwards to accommodate us, making sure our vacation was perfect. This is the only place we will come back to from now on."
