Best Value on the North Shore
"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."

"Stayed at Puamana for a 10 day vacation with my girlfriend. Very nice and quiet location. Felt very private as it is the end unit in a row and nothing but beautiful plants when looking out every window and private lanais surrounded by tropical plants. Condo looks exactly as it appears in the pictures, is very spacious, and very tastefully decorated in every room. Extremely clean and well kept. Kitchen is well stocked with just about everything you need including things like blenders/mixers/coffee machines/etc. Also there is a very nice clean Weber BBQ we used a few of the nights. All the basics were included (unused) when we arrived like Shampoos/soaps/dishwashing detergents/and even laundry detergent in starter sizes. Plenty of towels for bath and the beach. The owners and management clearly want to make sure everything is provided when you arrive and things like beach coolers/chairs/bodyboards/etc are all available too. Felt like I was at my second home in paradise. Location is perfect for taking walks as there are miles of walking trails all around (including 2 golf courses) and access to the beach is about a 10 minute walk down a fairly steep hill. The princeville shopping center is a 2min drive or a very nice 10-15min walk. The Westin is a 2 min walk up the street and St Regis is about 1 mile up the road if you feel like going out to a ritzy restaurant/bar. Hanalei bay is also very close, maybe a 10min drive and I recommend going to the Hanalei farmers market on saturdays for unbelievable fruits and produce. The north shore is by far the most beautiful area on the island which the best beaches (tunnels being my favorite) and this unit is right where you want to be. I'm looking forward to staying here on our next visit to Kauai. Thank you for making our stay as stress free and MORE comfortable than I imagined!!"

"We loved the house. The house has everything that you can need on a vacation. It is extremely clean. My family of 8 went and just loved the house. There was three adults and 5 teenagers. Our kids took full advantage of the paddle boards, bikes, and ping pong table that the house has to offer. The location is ideal as it is only 10 minutes (driving) from Hanalei Bay and 5 mins (driving) to Queens Bath. When we return we will definitely be renting out the house again. Glen and Kim were wonderful to deal with, not to mention Melody was a joy to talk to, she gave the kids a lot of tips on where to go and what to see on the island. Our security deposit refunded to us in a very timely manner. Glen, Kim and Melody, thank you for making our stay wonderful."
