About the property

Studio with full kitchen and loft. Children Welcome. Great rates. Convenient.

What is OUR weather like in the spring and summer? Daytime highs in the low 80's, and nightime lows around 70. Just plain nice. If your spring can be cool and breezy and then straight to the high heat and humidity, check us out. This is a great time to be here, not that there is a bad time. There is a reason Hawaii is so popular in the spring and summer. Sure there are the weddings and of course. school is out. But on top of all of that, it is just plain spectacular out here at that time of year.

It doesn't matter how you spend your days in paradise. Whether it is hiking the many trails, playing a round of golf at one of the many great courses on the island, or perhaps just a day at the beach with a good book. When you get back that evening, why not just relax. Put your feet up.

Hale Loli'i means house of relaxation. We chose this name for a reason, and we set it up to allow you to do just that. Perhaps the most important thing you will do at night is pay attention to tomorrow's weather.

Bring the family, or share with another couple. We want you to feel at home and be able to relax and enjoy this magnificent island and all it has to offer. Contact us to see how we can meet your needs.

If location is important, look no further. When you turn into Princeville, Paniolo is the first condo. Easy walking to shopping, parks, library, and a quick car ride to golf, tennis, fine restaurants, and beaches galore. The hard part will be leaving.

Perfect for a family of four, with brand new queen size bed, and two twin beds in the loft. Or, if two couples want to share, we can push the twin beds together with a king size mattress pad to accommodate.

The spectacular beauty of Kauai's North Shore surrounds you at Hale Loli'i. Whether you walk or drive, you are just minutes from fabulous beaches, great golf, hiking, horse back riding, or whatever else your imagination can come up with. And at the end of the day, come back to a home away from home.

This second floor walk-up unit has a sleeping area separated by a room divider, a dining area, a living room area, full kitchen, and a loft.

The loft, which contains two twin beds, is accessible by a loft stairway. As is, it works well for two children. We recommend children seven or older. The loft does not have a bathroom, and is not suitable for younger children particularly in the dark. Or, with the twin beds put together with a king size topper, it accommodates a second couple.

You don't have to set an alarm here, as there are plenty of birds and perhaps even chickens to get you up and going. Make breakfast in the fully stocked kitchen or if you want, walk over to the Princeville Center and find coffee and pastries at several local eateries, or stock up at the full service grocery store. Then decide what is in store for the day. Hopefully you won't try and do too much though. Remember, this is vacation.

Perhaps it is a sight-seeing day. Turn left out the driveway, and you are a couple of minutes from the main highway. Take a right and go up to the end of the road. Or a left will take you back east and then south to see the rest of the island. These can be difficult decisions, but whichever way you go, you will not be disappointed. The beauty is island-wide.

If you go right, it is ten miles until the end of the road. And a total of ten single lane bridges to navigate. A word on them later. If you go all the way to the end, you will arrive at Ke'e Beach. For me at least, this is perhaps one of the most peaceful and mesmerizing places on earth. If you walk back up the beach about five hundred yards, you will have a view of the Na Pali Cliffs over the water, with mist rising from the ocean caught by the rising sun. Be careful. You may never want to leave.

And between Hale Loli'i and Ke'e Beach, you will pass through Hanalei, and go by some of the great beaches of the world. You may want to save Hanalei until later in your trip as the shops there will give you plenty of souvenir options.

Or, if you got a sunburn yesterday from a little too long at the beach, maybe you head east and south. You can stop in Kilauea and see the lighthouse, Na Aina Kai botanical Gardens, or the Guava Kai Plantation.

A half hour drive down Kuhio Highway brings you to Old Kapa'a Town. More beaches, restaurants, and shops. Check out our guide book for suggestions.

Further down the road brings Waipouli, Wailua, Lihue, and on to the south shore and Poipu Beach, west to Waimea Canyon and if you are adventurous up to Polihale State Park.

At the end of the day, you can either eat in - perhaps take something down to the poolside grill - prepare whatever hits your fancy in the fully stocked kitchen - eat in the dining area that accommodates four comfortably. Or, if you are too tired to cook yourself, perhaps you will want to go out and enjoy any of the great restaurants nearby.

Later you can put your feet up in a comfortable recliner or stretch out on an equally comfy couch, and enjoy a wide assortment of channels - including ESPN, The Golf Channel, and TNT on the HD television, pick something from Netflix, or if you have a subscription, whatever you can find on the smart TV. Or rent a movie and put it in the blu-ray player. High speed internet is available to check your emails, surf the web, or stream your favorite music. There are board games & cards as well - for the occasional "liquid sunshine" times. Just remember, keep the work to a minimum. That will be waiting for you when you get back.

The sleeping area, which is separated by a room divider, has a new queen size mattress. Closet and drawer space permit you to unpack. But hope you didn't bring a lot of clothing with you. Shorts and a top will get you into anywhere on the island. And a washer and dryer in the unit will let you get any of that famous Kaua'i red dirt out.

The kitchen has a full size stove and refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven. There is also a coffee maker, teapot, toaster, electric griddle and blender as well as plenty of dishes and eating utensils. Last but not least, a separate counter-top ice maker is provided for those frosty tropical libations. And we have stocked in many of the typical spices you will need to prepare your favorite vacation meals.

When you are ready, enjoy the queen size bed in the separate sleeping area. Just don't set that alarm. You are on island time.

About Mike & Leslie Luttig

We had been coming to paradise for over twenty years and decided that this is where we wanted to retire. We moved here from Wisconsin in 2015. And now we want to help other visitors come and enjoy this beautiful island and all it has to offer.

Our first trip to the islands was in 1989. At the time, I had just turned forty, was a bit frustrated with my career, and not necessarily looking forward to the next twenty-five years. The rest of the family had gone on a pontoon boat tour of Napali Coast and I decided to take a walk. I had never been to Ke'e Beach. It was a two plus mile walk, and during the time it took me to walk there, we had a couple of mauka showers. I was a bit damp when I arrived at the beach. And while you would never know it today, I think I was the only person on the beach. I walked about two hundred yards back down the beach and turned around, and there were the cliffs with sun shining on them through mist blown off of the ocean.

The view was perhaps the most spectacular thing I had ever seen. I sat down on the beach and just stared at the cliffs for a long time, lost in thought. It was then that I decided that I did not have to spend the rest of my life doing something that did not make me happy.

By the time we returned to the mainland, I had already decided that I was going to go back to school and go a different direction. I have never looked back.

Over the years, we have returned to the island many times, dreaming that maybe someday we would be able to spend more time here. And then by chance, we had an opportunity we could not refuse and when we retired in 2015, were able to move here permanently. This mesmerizing, life changing beautiful island is now our home.

And now, I hope that somewhere out there, someone who is in a similar place that I was in 1989, might come here and experience what I did.

Mike & Leslie Luttig purchased this condo in 2017

Why Mike & Leslie Luttig chose Princeville

Paniolo is a small condominium located at the corner of Ka Haku Road and Wyllie Road in the heart of Princeville. It presents easy access to the main highway, as well as nearby shopping, golf, tennis, and walking.

Within minutes, you are on the main highway going north to abundant and beautiful beaches, or east and south to see the rest of the island.

This property is a great blend of location, size and price. For a fraction of a hotel room, you have the comforts of home. And its location is just blocks from the Princeville Center, main highway, the world famous Makai Golf Course, and many other attractions, It provides quick and easy access to all of the north shore attractions.

You are minutes from fine dining, hiking, snorkeling, camping, and some of the best beaches in the planet. We dare you to try and get bored here. You may find yourself wanting to extend your stay to try harder. Or perhaps start to plan your return trip before you close your suitcase and say goodbye.

What makes this condo unique

This arrangement is intimate enough for a couple looking for a getaway with all the comforts of home and at a reasonable price. It is also flexible enough to accommodate a family of four, or two couples.

A full kitchen making staying in for meals easy. And the dining area is set for four. A comfortable sitting area with large screen smart TV is well separated from the sleeping area.

A queen bed on the main floor and either two twin beds or a kind size in the loft nicely accommodates up to four.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our 4 night stay could not have been better unless we’d had time to make it longer! Thanks for sharing your beautiful condo with us - a home away from home. You’ve managed to capture the island vibe, laid-back & breezy! So much nicer than a hotel room.

Hale Loli’i is spacious, clean, relaxing - beautifully decorated in island style. We found it fully supplied with everything we needed including beach chairs, towels, umbrella, & cooler we took with us to ‘Anini Beach. If you feel like cooking, there are island cookbooks to inspire you & the kitchen has all you need to make a scrumptious meal at home.

Must do: Take a bike ride on the coastal path in Kapa’a - Hele Bike Rentals are $5/hour. Breathtaking views! Watch for the roadside waterfall on the way down (if you’re not the driver!). Browse the unique shops & catch lunch in Hanalei. When you return at the end of the day, your resident rooster will greet you on the sidewalk. Head for the crystal clear pool before going in to plan ahead for the next day.

This place was perfect for us. We look forward to returning.

MAHALO! 😎😎😎😎😎

Lovely super well furnished Apartment

You'll miss absolutely nothing here - we had a very pleasant vacation! We never had an apartment so well equipped!

Owner's Response: Aloha Kerstin: Thank you so much for the gracious comments. We always appreciate feedback from our guests, and it is even more fun when someone was happy with their stay. We want to provide a comfortable place to stay while you explore the beauty of the north shore of Kauai. We think it is important to have a place furnished with what you will likely need, and not spend half of your time getting supplies. But most important is that you had a great time, and it sounds like you did. So our final request to you, if you have not already done so, is to start planning your return trip. You were great guests, and we hope you will come back to see us soon. Mahalo, Leslie & Mike

Owner's Response: Aloha Ben: Do I hear you on you computer booking your return? Hopefully that will happen as we loved having you here. We are always happy to hear that our guests found what they needed and didn't have to spend half their trip running around getting this and that. And as always, if we didn't think of something, please let us know. Our guests are the best and have come up with some great ideas.

Cozy but noisy

  • 3 of 5

This was a very comfortable place to stay. Everything to make your vacation enjoyable (kitchen, coolers, beach chairs, washer & dryer, etc) but we were right next to the main road going through the neighborhood, which was incredibly noisy at all hours and especially in the early morning so we found that we couldn't leave the windows open and get a nice breeze and sleep at the same time. Not to mention that the roosters will also keep you up but I think you'll have that issue everywhere on the island. Other than the traffic noise issue the apartment was very nice and we enjoyed our time there but I would probably look for something closer to the east of south side of the island next time because we ended up doing a lot of driving to see sights. Princeville ended up not being the best hub for us.

Owner's Response: Aloha Kristin: We are sorry that we did not measure up to all of your expectations. We all look for different things when we travel and in particular when we are on vacation. But it sounds like the north shore would not likely be the first place you came back to if you returned. And there are distinct groups that may go north, south or even east depending on those preferences. Our first mission is comfort, and it sounds like we met those needs. Our goals are to provide a reasonably priced, well equipped and comfortable location for visitors looking to explore the splendor and beauty of the north shore while also providing access to the rest of the island. We do have to disagree a bit about the noise. There is one main road through Princeville going from the main highway to the St. Regis Hotel. And anyone going through Princeville will likely be on this road sometime during the day. If you grew up in the city, it is a lot less noticeable than if you came from a rural area with little or no traffic. We have also found that that once everyone is in for the night, it drops to almost nothing. Unlike some places, Princeville and surrounding area is not known for its vigorous nightlife with a lot of 3:00 am traffic. And no, there is likely no place on the island to completely avoid the chickens. Again, they are part of the local "charm" or a "local nuisance" depending on what time of the morning you first notice them. But finally, we do thank you for staying with us. Although there is really nothing we can do to address your specific issues, we hope that overall you found your trip to the island to be a pleasant experience, and although you will probably happier on the south shore, we do hope you come back. Mahalo, Mike & Leslie

The property is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could think you might need, they had supplied for us. There was even laundry soap for the washer! The pictures that are shown in the VRBO page are very accurate and show exactly what you get. We couldn't have asked for more. We would recommend staying with Mike and Leslie anytime. They took good care of us and were very easy to work with!

Owner's Response: Aloha Allison: Thank you for the kind comments. We are so happy you found everything to your satisfaction. Our goals are to provide a relaxing place to stay while you visit our beautiful north shore, and hopefully have the things you need while you are here without having to run all over to get this and that. We loved having you and hope that you fell in love with paradise and will come back and see us soon. And we won't even mind if you tell your family and friends. Within reason of course, so there will always be room for you. Mahalo, Mike & Leslie

Super condo, had everything we needed; located on a busy street

  • 4 of 5

Mike and Leslie have thought of absolutely everything and stocked this condo with it all. It was super clean, comfortable beds, great shower, awesome kitchen, plus washer and dryer in the unit. We could walk to the grocery store, snacks and shopping and also a beach. The condo is stocked with all you need for the beach (chairs, beach mats, snorkel gear, towels, umbrella, etc) The pool fit our needs and the condo grounds were really nicely kept. Mike and Leslie were quick with responses if we needed anything or had questions.

Our only problem (that can not be changed) is the street noise. That being said, we live in a really rural area with practically no traffic and so for us hearing cars all day long was a bit distracting. This is the ONLY reason we dropped a star. Others may not notice the traffic at all.

Also worth mentioning, is that if you are new to VRBO, make sure you have your key code for the key lock box from VRBO before you arrive! We did not know this and could almost not get into the condo. It all worked out in the end, but wanted other renters to know.

Owner's Response: Aloha Danette: Thank you for the gracious comments that suggest we have met our goals. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and found that the condo had everything you needed. But yes, unfortunately, Ka Haku Road is the major entrance into Princeville, and as a result does get traffic, particularly during the working hours. This includes residents and visitors coming and going as well as service vehicles. It has been our experience however that most of the traffic is daytime, and once five o'clock comes around, it goes down dramatically. And of course, if you are from an area that is normally very quiet, any steady traffic will be noticeable. We have not been able to find out why you were unable to access the entrance code. Since at this point, you are the only case, we have to assume it was an aberration. But thank you for pointing that out. As a result, we are starting to individually make sure that guests have the entrance code before they arrive. Hopefully you will come back and see us should you come back to paradise. We would love to have you. Mahalo, Mike & Leslie

Very clean and had EVERYTHING you needed to make your stay on Kauai enjoyable!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. We stayed in vacation rental condominiums many times while here on vacation before finally moving here. We had three major goals when we started. First to provide a convenient affordable place to stay and be able to get around both the north shore and the rest of the island. Second was to make it clean and comfortable. We wanted a place where people could relax and put their feet up. Whether after an adventurous day of hiking, golfing, surfing or whatever activity you find. And finally, to have the things you use day to day and not spend a large part of your trip picking up these items. It sounds like we were able to meet those for your stay with us. Mahalo for sharing.
