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 41 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 41 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 25 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. Oh my, where to begin! Our favorite beaches: Hanalei pier Annini Ke'e (when they reopen from the storm in April) Restaurants: North Shore: Dolphin for sushi Dolphin Fish Market in back Hanalei Gourmet Chicken in a Barrel The Italian Restaurant in the Princeville Shopping Center Kilauea: Lighthouse Bistro In Kapaa: Bull Shed Lava, on the beach Hamura Saimin off Rice Street, in Lihue for noodles The Brewery in Lihue on Rice Street Nahwiliwili Harbor has great outdoor mexican food dining, upstairs with views and a great Happy Hour Farmers Market in Hanalei on Saturday Mornings at 9 a.m. Friday night Art Walk in Hanapepe. We love Bobby's BBQ and dine outside while listening to the local music And we love to golf: Makai and Wailua Oh, Zip Line at the Princeville Stables All of the art and craft fairs on the No Shore are fun, also.

Quiet unit, nice ocean view from bedroom
Very quiet unit and clean condo with ocean view from bedroom. We enjoyed waking up to see the golf course and ocean beyond. At night there is very little noise except the sound of the ocean and wind.

Great space for 2!
My wife and I were here for 10 days. The space is perfect for 2. As others noted the kitchen is small but functional. The location was perfect. The area is very quiet and peaceful. Would recommend.
Thank you so much for being our guests and taking the time to write this review! We so appreciate your kind words!
We will look forward to your return! Stay healthy and happy!
You'll enjoy a stay here!
We really enjoyed our stay here!
The location is a good spot in Princeville and not too far from the main highway. We were a little bummed anything past Hanalei Bay was closed off (Tunnels beach, Ke'e beach, Kalalau Trail) the time we were there (in July '18), but it was still a great location to be at!
The property has a really pretty atmosphere, with nice trees, breeze, and a distant view of the water across a golf course.
The apartment was really nice inside, it felt very clean and quaint. The bedroom is what stands out the most, it's open and surrounded by windows. As others have said, the kitchen is small, but there is enough supplies you can get by with. The television area was also really nice! A couch instead of two separate chairs would have been preferred, but it was still a nice place to sit.
The bathroom was pretty big, and we appreciated the shampoo, conditioner, and lotion that was provided!
The beach towels, chair, boogie boards, and umbrella were also great to have!
Thank you so much for your time and detailed description of your stay! We are constantly making efforts to make this place as comfortable, enjoyable and clean, as your own home, while on vacation.
Until next time, Mahalo!
This quiet condo was wonderful! Just a few minute's drive to beautiful Hanalei Bay and a short walk from the cliffs overlooking the northern shoreline, it truly was paradise.
Your time for your kind words are sincerely appreciated!
Until next time, Aloha!
Great little space
This space is perfect if you're traveling with your spouse. (I would not recommend it with kids.) The condo was INCREDIBLY clean when we arrived, and Pamela the owner was VERY responsive to our questions (we had a random bug spraying of the lanai during our visit). The location is quiet, easily accessible, and has a lovely view. My one and only "complaint" is that the shower never offered more than 10 minutes of hot water at a time (most likely due to the sharing with the neighbors); however, our sunburn later proved for that to be irrelevant (😜). Overall, this space is wonderful and if you want to stay on the north side of the island, I highly recommend here!
Your time for your kind words and detailed experience, is sincerely appreciated!
Until next time, Aloha!
The beauty of our location and setting is that you can enjoy all of the above activities, attractions and service/businesses, within walking distance or a short drive. There is public transportation, also but why limit yourself?
