Wonderful island!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great little place to stay for the few days we were on Kauai. The view and tranquility of the place is wonderful and there is a local restaurant just a short walk from the condo and a grocery store just up the road if you don't feel like travelling far.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

It's a cosy space but perfect for the 2 of us. Easy and quick walk to the beaches so we didn't have to drive and find parking. The only criticism was that they didn't have fins for the snorkel gear but other than that, they supplied everything that we needed.

A perfect hideaway in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I decided to end our Hawaiian vacation with the last 4 days in Kauai. We were a little concerned about going from our air conditioned unit in the middle of bustling Waikiki to a condo tucked away in Princeville, which did not have AC. Temperatures in Kauai were supposed to be in the high 80's, so as the end of the trip grew near, we became nervous. However, Kathy's unit did not disappoint. Despite high temperatures in the summer, the 2 strong ceiling fans and the box fan made a tremendous difference. The unit didn't seem to get direct sunlight, so heat was never an issue. We were very comfortable and had no complaints. The views of the mountains from the back patio were absolutely beautiful. It felt like we were in a treetop bungalow, very quiet and secluded. While you do need a car to get around anywhere on Kauai, we were still able to walk to a few beaches from the condo without any issues. It is just a quick drive down to Hanalei (~10 mins). We even were able to walk one morning from Princeville to Hanalei via Hanalei Bay during low tide (do not recommend unless you know where the shallow part of the bay is! We asked the locals how to do it.). Overall, the condo was a great base to come back to after a days worth of adventures. Kathy was very efficient in getting us the information we needed. She also provides explanations of places to go, how to get there, and other ideas of what to do.

Perfect location in kauai!

  • 4 of 5

This small studio condo was the perfect place for our much too short stay on beautiful Kauai.

We were awed at the beauty that surrounded us! The directions provided by Kathy were spot on. Very easy to find, park and get inside. As other reviews have stated the bed is very comfortable, which was welcomed after long days of amazing snorkeling in the coves literally across the street. Very quiet neighborhood!

The only thing to note is, if you need to do more than microwaveable meals you won't have that here.

Didnt matter to us as we used the community bbq grill, a very short walk away, to bbq hotdogs and hamburgers. Mini fridge large enough to keep our drinks snd such cold. Beautiful red headed birds came to visit us on the lovely lanai.and with our binoculars we could see several waterfalls in the mountains surrounding the property.

Kathy was kind and easy to communicate with. Even without air conditioning we definitely stayed cool enough with the two ceiling fans and box fan, provided. The only reason i dont give five stars is it would have been nice to have a kitchen sink. No biggie for us, as a twosome without children. We wouldn't liked to go across the street to have a beer at the pizza pub but werent able to make it this time. Hope to stay here again in the future.

Great place / great value / beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

My gf and I stayed here for a short 2 night stay. All was perfect . Bed super comfy - shower great. The little birds that eat from your hand very sweet . Great location near the shops at Princeville and golf course . View lovely from the balcony. We loved it. A few local brochures on what to do would have been great in the room and a few extra wine glasses :) small small things.
