About the property

Views, Location, Golf, Beach, Stores, Cafe's, Spa within walking distance

This location is truly special! While unwinding from a long day at the beach or hiking, I sit on the lanai with a cool, refreshing beverage or lay on the bed with the windows open and I feel like I am in the most luxurious tree house, simply magical. You are atop the fragrant Plumeria Trees and you look out the bedroom window to the ocean or look out the slider, onto the lanai, for an amazing sunset, through the palm trees. Beauty embraces you! You walk out the front door, to the pool, or to the Championship Makai Golf course for a sunrise or sunset walk. Go for a short walk to Sea Lodge and there is a short trail (slippery when it has been wet)down to the beach, for snorkeling, sea turtle watch or simply enjoying the sun. The No Shore of Kauai is so lush and tropical. We have never tired of the beauty it embraces us with, year round! The sights are spectacular and abundant, as are the beaches. An outdoor enthusiasts playground and an artist's paradise! You are walking distance to cafe's, markets and simply a short drive from the legendary town of Hanalei. It continues to be our treasured home away from home, for 20 years!

About Pamela Francis

This is a family owned condo. My sister is a private chef in the S.F. Bay Area, my husband is a General Contractor, in Lake Tahoe, for 40 years (originally from the Bay Area) and I am a Realtor, at Century 21 in So Lake Tahoe and I have lived in Lake Tahoe, for 40 years (originally from the Bay Area). Our families continue to grow and we have had the most memorable, very special vacations together, on this magical island. We love to golf, hike, walk, take epic numbers of photos and relax on the beach, snorkeling, SUP and some attempts at surfing. Kauai is truly our home away from home. Lake Tahoe is also paradise, but nothing is more exciting than to know we have a tropical winter home to escape to.

Pamela Francis purchased this condo in 2004

Why Pamela Francis chose Princeville

Our families in Lake Tahoe and San Francisco fell in love with Kauai, about 20 years ago. Once we became the owners of this special condo, our love continued to grow for this "Garden Island" paradise. When it is time for a trip, to get out of the snow, winter or simply a break from our busy lives, there is only one place that comes to my mind and that is Kauai. We have shared our love for Kauai with our children, grandchildren, other family members, friends and it has become "the paradise" for all that have experienced it. There is always a bit of sadness and a couple of tears when it is time to say Aloha!

What makes this condo unique

We love the lush flora, waterfalls, views, scenery, birds, lizards, sunrises, sunsets, beaches, cafe's, the community, all within steps - to short drives, from our doorstep. Princeville is in the No Shore of the island, which may get a little more rain, but most of the time, it is a quick shower to cool things off, ignite the waterfalls, create magical rainbows and make all the fauna colors vibrant. The abundance of beaches is a BIG attraction for us, but I have to admit, I do have a couple of favorites. The farmers market in Hanalei is not to be missed, on Saturdays, at 9:30. The most beautiful, assorted veggies, fruits, flowers, crafts and deeelicious foods. A sweet local family plays music and sings, while you sit, enjoy your treats & the beautiful views of the mountains. Kauai is an island of outdoor activities, beautiful sights and star gazing. For those who like a little night life, you may find it at the larger resorts, where there are some spectacular island shows. If you have never been to Kauai, it is a must and I know you will return.

Our condo, with vaulted ceilings, is well equipped for a condo with a step saver kitchenette. The kitchenette was just replaced and the interior was painted, in June of 2017. 2 new ceiling fans, a screen door and a floor fan are available when the trade winds are absent. A very enjoyable/peaceful place to lay your head, after a full day of most enjoyable island activities. We are in the tropics and do our best to keep our condo clean & serviced, with regular maintenance for pests and provide adequate ventilation with fans, screen doors and screened windows. Trade winds are marvelous. A/C is cost prohibitive and a luxury you will find in your more expensive resorts.

Just as advertised and better!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were on the island to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday. We spent almost two glorious weeks on the island - partly at this location and part at another on the other side of the island. The unit was perfect! I know we will be back and I know we will stay in this unit longer! I highly recommend it! I had a question that was answered immediately. Pamela was wonderful to work with. The kitchen was enough for us to prepare the meals we wanted, the entire condo is just perfect. There were very nice beach chairs, beach towels and other gear that were top notch and made the visit even better. We can’t wait to come back!

Very Peaceful with a view from the bedroom.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo in Princeville. The neighborhood is super quiet and close to 2 hidden beaches you can walk to on a trail as well as Queen's Bath so you don't have to worry about parking. You can also walk to the Princeville village for their local market on Sunday nights. Just don't expect there is a couch and yes the kitchen and fridge our tiny but somehow still can work for 2 people. The breeze is nice as well in May.

We had an amazing time in Kauai. Although it was rainy and the weather was unusually bad (big thunderstorm!), we still felt like home and had everything we needed in the condo. There is always sun somewhere on the island ;) The place is amazing, you fell relax as soon as you enter the condo. The location is perfect, near Queen's bath, Hideaway beach and NaPali Coast. The owner answer quick to our message and is really nice. We appreciated there was coffee, laundry detergent and all basics we needed. Thank you for everything, we recommend it strongly!

A delightful, peaceful place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful. Easy to find the place, park, and check in. The apartment itself is clean and cozy. A cool breeze keeps the place very comfortable even when its hot outside (along with the fans if necessary), and I actually found it much more enjoyable than AC which tends to dry out the air. Fast internet.

We made breakfast every morning and ate it on the balcony while enjoying the birdsong. Basically this rental is great, and I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

The only downside was the kitchen (while well equipped, modern and clean) is very small. It's perfectly adequate for making breakfast or a simple dinner, but it would be harder to cook anything complicated there.

Peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing time here, enjoying long walks and the views out to the ocean. The only downside is that the kitchen is very small.

Owner's Response: Hello! Kauai is the greatest place to unwind, isn't it? So happy you enjoyed yourselves! The kitchen is classified as a "kitchenette" and I do hope it comes across in the website, the size. It is truly a step saver, but the best equipped and cutest kitchenette! Perfect for those into simple meals, not requiring 4 burners and an oven. ;) Thank you so much for your time to write this review and being our guests! P.S. For the future, you may want to look into our other unit, that has a full size kitchen. #309345.

Peaceful, beautiful, comfortable unit, perfect for two

  • 5 of 5

We loved this upstairs apartment with its large light-filled bedroom (with a very good bed) overlooking a quiet golf course and ocean bluff. It has a spacious bathroom with a louvered window around the wall behind the shower: sea breezes and birdsong flow in there, as well as from the balcony off the living room and all windows. The kitchen is small but adequate; we cooked all our meals. Pamela has provided all sorts of thoughtful amenities, from plenty of nice towels to beach chairs and sunblock and bug spray for hiking—no insects on the property! We recommend this to anyone seeking a serene getaway. We hope to return.
