  • Great place to stay.

    "This was our first time vacation in Kauai. We spent 1 week in this beautiful condo. The building is located on the property with a very short walk to a good beach. Right next to Sheraton hotel. This is a very well maintained property. Also only 3 min drive and maybe 10 min walk to Poipu Beach. It has snorkeling area and swimming areas. The unit looks exactly as shown on the pictures and very clean. Very good for a small 3-4 people. There were 3 of us. Both bed and sofa are very comfortable. The kitchen has every utensil you can think of including good quality pots, pans, coffee machine, blander, etc. Very good and easy communication with the owner Jim. I highly recommend this condo and will definitely come back again. Thank you Jim and Sandy."

  • Great Stay, Great Value

    "Let me start with where we stayed and then why only four stars. He has two properties and we opted for the hotel and not the condo. The reason not 5 stars was because the Four Seasons or the Ritz would be 5 stars, this is an excellent resort though. Your vacation will be what you make it, so I won't tell you how to spend your time and will only talk about the property. Third, this is an incredible value for what you get. I can honestly say you won't find any better accommodations for these prices...... I looked long and hard. It's clean, open, well manicured, and friendly attentive staff. There are 4 pools, I think, and a tropical waterfall in it along with a pool bar. We spent very little time on premise during the day, we left around 6:30 most mornings and found ourselves getting home around 8:30 every night, so I can't speak about lunch. Morning you have 2 options at the hotel, full sit down breakfast with options for menu or buffet. You're going to pay $40 no matter what for 2 adults. It's good, variety of options, fresh and you will find some, if not many, things you like. The other option is coffee and muffin for $6 in the gift shop. This was our option most days as we were on the go, plus we are not the type to eat a 4 course meal for breakfast usually. Dinner options are semi formal dining or bar food. We had both, and the bar food was good, again, above average. The semi formal dining was terrible and fantastic at the same time. My dish was overcooked and really just not good, however my wife's was incredible. Maybe the best plate we had all trip. My advice is order something you like, don't ask the wait staff for recommendations. All that being said, my one dish was the ONLY bad experience I had and it was very easily overlooked. The drinks are poured well, all the bartenders mix drinks the way they should be. They don't water it down or skimp on you. The rooms are clean and kept cool. As you can tell we only use the rooms to sleep and shower in, so all that was perfect. Clean sheets, beds with a plethora of pillows, showers, towels, balcony with chairs and a view of the ocean, and a desk. Everything you need plus some. Nothing old and busted. Really couldn't ask for more. There is beach access to walk along the beach if you like, otherwise Kauai is the most beautiful island of the chain and thank goodness there are no big cities and few people on the island. Enjoy the stay, relax and have fun!"

  • Kiahuna Plantation (Castle side)

    "Kiahuna is a very peaceful Quite large property. Our unit was well maintained and updated. The unit is well located between beach, shops , and several good restaurants. We did not cook in our unit which was well equipped to do so. We made it a true vacation and ate out. Our unit was a second story end unit with great cross breezes, and very private. WE were twenty year residents of Honolulu and Know Hawaii well. Kauai is as Hawaiian as it gets, enjoy. The owners are a pleasure to deal with."

  • We had a great time at this place!

    "Matches the description on the web site. Easy communications with the owner. We really had a great time at this place. The house was very clean when we arrived. We enjoyed having our coffee on the upstairs lanai every morning while listening to the birds singing and admiring the beautiful view over the mountains. The kitchen is well appointed, everything is there to cook a perfect meal. The garden around the house has a lot of fruit trees : oranges, star fruits, avocados, bananas. Very exotic. The outdoor shower is a must try. The house can get a bit hot during the day, but cools at night. Anyway, there are enough ventilators to keep the air flowing. The neighborhood is quiet, no barking dogs. We would highly recommend and we would stay there again if we ever go back to Princeville."
