Premier Princeville Penthouse Condo! Spectacular Ocean and Bali Hai views!

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 4

This unique penthouse unit sits on an ocean bluff and overlooks a stunning, world famous panorama, from 1000-foot waterfalls cascading down the Bali Hai mountains to the south, to secluded Hideaways Beach and reef below you, to waves crashing on the rocks of the Queen’s Bath to the north. The view is unparalleled, and only a few units in the complex have one as nice as this. With our enclosed solarium and top floor location, this unit is the largest one that offers that view.

Trade winds float through the condo providing natural cooling, and each of the main rooms has a quiet ceiling fan and 10 to 18 foot ceilings with recessed lighting on dimmers. The unit is bright, with windows in every room. The living room is topped with a high clerestory that bathes the room with light and provides an extra sense of spaciousness and climate regulation available only in the penthouse units. Our solarium (not all penthouse units have one) is always bright, even during the rain squalls Kauai is known for. The front door opens into this welcoming solarium, in contrast to several neighboring units where the outer door opens onto an open unroofed lanai before one can enter the unit.

The bathrooms feature premium fixtures with detachable showerheads, deluxe one-piece toilets, wood cabinetry and granite countertops and trim. The master bath has an oversized walk-in shower with two showerheads and a glass block wall facing toward the sea, so you can see the sparkling ocean even from your shower. The master bath has two sinks and a deep, full-length whirlpool bath. The second bathroom is spacious and includes a washer and dryer in an annexed closet. The unit is provided with a surplus of bath towels and beach towels for the ocean and pool.

The master bedroom features an ocean view, a king bed, plenty of closet space, and a television and DVD player. The room can be made more private by closing accordion shutters onto the solarium if desired.

The kitchen is recently remodeled in granite and wood cabinetry and new appliances, and it is fully equipped with utensils, pots and pans, dinner flatware, dishes and glassware. The refrigerator provides through-the-door ice and water. The dining room adjoins the kitchen, affording both casual counter seating and a more formal dining area with an expandable table and 6 chairs.

The living room is luxuriously furnished with extended sofa, loveseat, koa wood furniture, a personal stereo with iPod/iPhone hookup, and a large, fully cable-connected high-definition flat screen television with BluRay DVD player. The solarium contains upholstered rattan furniture, a breakfast table, a whale-watching scope and an antique Chinese cabinet. The unit offers guests a variety of music CDs, movie DVDs, popular books, board games and jigsaw puzzles. Original artwork by Arius Hopman, Brad Dawber and other artists is displayed on the walls. Large folding shutters facing the lanai can be closed to limit sun exposure if desired. This complex is constructed of concrete, so you do not hear occupants in neighboring units through the walls.

A computer desk and work area shares the view and is fully equipped for laptop computers and phone calls if needed.

The large, newly furnished lanai is oriented to the WNW with wing walls on either side. Since this is a penthouse unit, there is no one above you, which affords complete privacy. The lanai has a BBQ, multiple chaises, exterior lighting and an umbrella-covered glass table, giving you an unsurpassed dining view.

Mobile telephones throughout the unit, plus wired and/or mobile phone extensions in the master bedroom and second bedroom, provide unlimited free long distance service within the United States. DSL high-speed internet access and 802.11N secured Wi-Fi wireless access is available in all rooms and on the lanai.

Upgraded with top-of-the-line equipment, including a high efficiency washer and dryer,& dishwasher.

The property was very nice - well maintained and with a beautiful view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai

  • 4 of 5

We would recommend the complex in the future, although we suggest that it be made clear that the complex has no elevators so if one is staying on the top/3rd floor, there are a lot of steps to climb. The condo was well stocked and comfortable.

Lovely Puu Poa Penthouse Home Tastefully Furnished With Extraordinarily Accommodating HomeOwners

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were extremely lucky to secure a booking this past September in Sue and Ted's Puu Poa Penthouse 411 which is one of the finest situated penthouse units at this deluxe Princeville condominium community. Their beautiful home is tastefully decorated and instantly made us feel at home while we took in the lovely Bali Hai vista and open ocean views. Notably they employ a very professional team who maintain their well-appointed rental home in excellent condition. Highly recommended.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 11 year old son enjoyed a great week here because of all the amenities that are available with the rental. All the statements from other reviewers about the views, neat things to do on the Kauai North Shore, proximity to the beach, etc are all 100% true but what was most impressive to me were all the amenities available as if you were staying in your own vacation home. The owners provided beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas, snorkel gear, beach matts just to name a few. Having a working gas grill on the huge balcony was a lot of fun when you can watch whales breaching in the gorgeous sunset over Hanalei. It is a great place and I would stay for my next trip to Princeville.

Pu'u Poa Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you want a front-row seat for the amazing sunsets over Princeville and Bali Hai, this is the place to be. The North Shore and Princeville are the prime spots for enjoying the lush landscape and provide easy access to Hanalei and Kilauea.

The unit has an enclosed solarium for wave and whale watching when sudden showers hit. It is well equipped and well located within walking distance of the St. Regis Princeville Resort and on the oceanfront, which other properties do not have.

We brought in fresh sushi from the local market in Princeville and watched the sunset on several evenings. It's that good.

Fabulous views and wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an awesome vacation in Princeville! This Penthouse Condo was amazing - the views were fabulous and accommodations were wonderful!! Everything you would expect from a home away from home is in this condo, even down to detergent to do laundry. The owners have been thoughtful in providing everything for their guests - beach toys for kids, snorkel gear, DVDs to watch, books to read. The gourmet kitchen is extremely spacious and cooking in it was such a joy. The solarium is a huge bonus. As expected on the Princeville side, it rained on and off throughout our stay and the solarium provided additional living space that we noticed the other units did not have. Definitely a treat to wake up every morning and breakfast in the solarium to enjoy the views even during the rain! The condo is within walking distance to St. Regis restaurants and spa, 5 minutes from a grocery store and 10 minutes to more shops and restaurants in Hanalei - this was a huge plus. We couldn't have been happier about choosing this condo for our vacation and cannot wait to go back again!
