Why Frederica & Joe Welsh chose North Shore

We fell in love with Kauai and particularly the North Shore on our honeymoon, 28 years ago and it is our true home. We love our home in Princeville and enjoy sharing it with our guests and hope that they get to experience the magic of this island and come to love it as we do.

A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our two families. There was plenty of room and bathrooms for everyone. It was well equipped with all of the beach supplies you would need and the house itself had everything including a well equipped kitchen, big table, plenty of seating areas etc. The hot tube was really nice to come home to as well after a long day of exploring Hawaii. We look forward to staying here again and would highly recommend this place to anyone!

This home was spacious and clean and had a great selection of equipment !

  • 5 of 5

This home accommodated our large family nicely! Love the kitchen and the open air. It was amazing how cool the house stayed naturally without air-conditioning ! The private back patio was an amazing place to start the day and finish the day surrounded by beautiful colors and amazing sounds!

Really was a home away from home to share on this beautiful island !

2 weeks in Princeville

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here late January with 3 families including 4 kids and it was great. The place is very large, well laid out, and the bathrooms and kitchen were clean. Lots of amenities like lawn chairs, coolers, bikes, beach umbrellas etc. We had a great time and would recommend this house to others.

Great house, great location, perfect for large families.

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as pictured with four comfortable bedrooms and four baths, plenty of room for our family of nine!

The kitchen was a focal point and great for cooking family meals and the hot tub was the perfect end to a day of exploring or snorkeling. We highly recommend the local Farmers Markets for fresh fruit and juice!

Frederica and Joe were very easy to work with and we recommend this house if you are looking for a family or group location!

This is a loveley, welcoming home complete with everything you need to make your vacation ideal.

  • 5 of 5

Others here have expressed their experiences so well that I will not spend this review reiterating what has already been stated. Both the home and location are idyllic. What I think sets this place apart is/are Frederica and Joe. They have provided this home with everything you might need for a perfect vacation but they go above and beyond even that. They are incredibly responsive should you have any questions during your stay regarding not only their home but also Kauai. Their support and advice is invaluable. This was my first VRBO experience and perhaps other owners are pleasant to deal with but I can't imagine that they are as welcoming and helpful as Frederica and Joe.

We were so impressed with this beautiful home. It was large enough for a big family and had everything needed. The master bedroom is down stairs and perfect for those of us who can't get around as well. Kauai is truly a wonderful island, and has so much to see and do. Our family loved everything about this trip. Thanks to you all for sharing such a gorgeous place. We highly recommend it!
