Gorgeous 2 BR Plantation Style Home in Princeville

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our lovely Hawaiian plantation style home located on Kauai’s north shore, is surrounded by tropical flowers and plants, and features open beam ceilings and a wrap-around covered lanai. The garden view from the lanai, plus distant mountain views make it a soothing, relaxing place to visit. Wake up to the sun rising on the lanai, and enjoy the setting sun through the bedroom windows.

This two bedroom detached home affords beautiful views and catches the cool trade wind breezes on warm Hawaiian afternoons. Nearby bluffs offer fantastic views of the Pacific, a place to watch the waves, seabirds and whales during their southern migration to the islands. Activities include tennis, horseback riding, zip-lining, hiking, shopping, and of course the beaches. The Princeville resort community is also home to the beautiful Prince Golf Course, named Number One golf course by Golf Digest and is included in their list of America's 100 Greatest golf courses.

The living room includes two comfortable couches, one queen-sized and the other full-sized, which unfold into beds, along with TV/DVD/Cable/Tivo. Just the place to relax after a wonderful day in paradise. The open ceilings give a spacious feel where you can entertain friends or just chill out.

The complete kitchen includes range, refrigerator, disposal, microwave, and overlooks the garden filled with tropical flowers. Meals can be eaten in the dining area (seats six) or outside on the lanai (our favorite dining space). If you prefer, you can barbeque on the gas grill just outside the kitchen windows. For those "I don't feel like cooking" days, nearby restaurants at the Princeville center (about a 15-20 minute walk, or a couple of minutes by car) or in Hanalei and Kilauea offer fabulous service and delicious local and international cuisine.

The guest bedroom is equipped with two full-size beds, a full closet, and plenty of storage space for clothing. The master bedroom also includes phone and WiFi/DSL - perfect for emailing your vacation pictures to jealous friends! (Bring your WiFi equipped laptop, but leave the work at the office.)

The two-car garage not only keeps your car protected, but provides a handy place to stage those excursions to the mountains, the beach, or wherever your adventures on Kauai take you. All linens are supplied. Washer/dryer are in the garage.

Enjoy nearby beaches at Anini and Kalihiwai, snorkeling at Tunnels and Queens Bath, kayaking on the Hanalei River. Dine at restaurants in Princeville, Hanalei, and Kilauea. Walk to nearby sea lodge beach, just ten minutes walk from your door. You'll enjoy comfort, privacy, and quiet that you can't find at a condo or hotel.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the Baldwins for opening up their home! We had a wonderful 5 night stay! It was pretty rainy but your home was well equipped and we didn't mind hanging out on your nice porch watching the rain. Love that side of the island. Also, appreciated having beach chairs and boogie boards for the kids to use!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a long overdue review! My husband and I visited Kauai(our favorite Island) for a nice long 10 day getaway back in October. This home was absolutely wonderful! From the moment we arrived we felt completely relaxed and at home. What you can't see in these pictures is the amazing feeling of coming home from your day at the beach and sitting out on the Lanai to watch the sunset with the trade winds blowing through your hair. We loved that Lanai, and had our coffee on it every morning, and enjoyed the beautiful sunset on it almost every evening. The home is quite big, and very nicely maintained. It is on a quiet street, but still very close to everything. The owners were very sweet, and took good care to make sure that our stay was great. We will be back! This is a great place for a couple, a family, or a larger group. We would(and have) recommend this place to everyone we know. We can't wait for our next trip!

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed staying at this house; it exceeded all of our expectations. There was a full kitchen with all large and small appliances, a comfortable living room and dining area, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. In addition, we had use of the garage and washer and dryer. it was spotlessly clean and well-maintained, inside and out. The veranda was wonderful for relaxing. We only had one question when we arrived, which was in using the TIVO. I shot an email to the owner and was promptly told how to operate the remote. There were never any other issues. We used the house as a base to go all around the island. It's in a quiet, resort area of nice homes and felt totally safe. There are walking/running/biking paths nearby. As far as activities, the Smith Family Luau, hiking the Sleeping Giant, eating at Scotty's Beach BBQ in Kapaa, and the bakery/pizzeria in Kilheaua were some favorite spots. Waimea Canyon is also a must-see. My only regret is that we were not at home more to relax on the veranda. I would highly recommend this property.

Princeville Plantation Home a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely home Jan 9th to 19th 2011. The layout of the house was perfect for us - the bedrooms and bathrooms separated from the living and dining areas by being down a few steps - easy to get to but a little apart. The lanai wraps around the house with a BBQ just outside the kitchen side. We grilled every evening and ate on the lanai. The lanai was very peaceful and private - the only sound was the birds. Everything was very clean and well maintained - everything in the listing was accurate or better. We could have used a little more hot water in the tank in the mornings - I used every drop when I showered.

You can walk to the Princeville Center for shops - we mainly went for the Foodland supermarket - particularly good pre-made sandwiches. There were cool beach chairs in the garage that we used for beach picnics and surf watching. We played Princeville 'Prince' golf course - about 3 miles south - we were fortunate they had a 'special' price due to bunker work. It was the best golf course we've ever played - one of a kind.

Kapa'a to the south has a good Safeway supermarket. Also fun in Kapa'a was renting bicycles and cruising the bike paths right along the shore - no cars to worry about.

We were very comfortable staying here and would most certainly recommend it.
