There is no better way to enjoy the romance and warm charm of the garden isle of Kauai than in Princeville. Whether you travel for the amenities of the resort or choose to enjoy the natural wonders of the island or maybe just to relax, then your choice is Pu'u Po'a #402.

The recently installed custom glass solarium over the atrium provides additional living space to be enjoyed just a single step from the master bedroom suite or from the comfortably furnished living room.

The newly remodeled interior is beautifully decorated to the highest standards. Bolivian rosewood hardwood flooring, quality furniture, exquisite oriental rugs, gourmet kitchen, granite counters, cherry cabinets, custom linens and dramatic appointments throughout. Simply the best!

Princeville is a planned resort community overlooking the Pacific Ocean where lush, green mountains meet crystal-clear waters with beautiful uncrowded beaches. The resort's centerpiece is its award-winning, 45-hole, championship golf courses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a simply delightful week in Kauai. Your condo. made the stay perfect. My husband travels extensively in his business so hotel rooms don't mean vacation to him. We've stayed in many condos over the years but never one so beautifully furnished and well equipped!

Thanks again - I mean, Mahalo!

Pu'u Poa 402 delivered exactly what we were looking for...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (+ parents) just returned from a week in Kauai and Pu'u Poa 402 was everything that we were hoping it would be... and better!

First and foremost, the view from the condo is spectacular. Top (4th) floor is very quiet and there are unobstructed views out to the ocean. it was a treat to watch the suffers ride the waves while we ate breakfast on the lanai each morning, and then come back later to watch the sun set during happy hour. The view from inside the condo is just as amazing. Its pretty inspiring to wake up each morning and look out at the ocean without having to get out of bed.

The location of Pu'u Poa is great. The area around Princeville/St Regis is beautiful. The houses and grounds surrounding the golf course are all well kept and people were walking/ jogging the paths. My wife and I walked to the St Regis and hiked to the Queen's Bath. We hiked down to the beach below the condo and drove the short route to several beaches along the road to Haena for picnics. The terrain can be challenging. There are several restaurants nearby and the food market in Princeville had everything we needed to stock up the condo. Nearby Hanalei is a picturesque little surf-town with quaint shops and good restaurants and we spent some time there exploring the farmers market.

This condo has to be the nicest condo in Pu'u Poa and Gary has done an excellent job of furnishing and decorating it. The design is sleek and modern with floor to ceiling windows and beautiful wood/tile floors, but it is also very comfortable with soft floral prints and Hawaiian artwork. A/C was a big +. We peaked in a couple of the other condos. They were nice. Yeah, we paid a little more for 402 and it was worth it.

Its obvious that the owner Gary takes pride in his condo and helping his guests have a great stay on the island - and it shows. We received a nice welcome gift upon arrival and Gary was very accommodating with our travel schedule to help us get another activity in the day we left. Gary's communication was outstanding from beginning to end. He was very quick to respond to questions/inquiries and provided recommendations for places to see, places to eat, and things to do. We came with our own list of places we wanted to explore as well and compared that with Gary's, and found Gary's comments were spot on. We truly felt like guests (not customers) and that's what the Aloha spirit is supposed to be all about... Mahalo!. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Great location, beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We liked that we were minutes from Hanalei and the best beaches on the North Shore! Ocean views were amazing. Hideaways Beach was a gem, but it's a steep climb down the stairs to get there. Condo was in perfect condition and highly organized with everything we needed. Pool is not open until April due to renovations, so we did not get to try the pool.

Absolute delight

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Kauai and I couldn't have chosen a better place for our family to stay.

This unit is as described: top unit, close to the west edge of the complex so it was peaceful. The unit has 2 large bays of floor to ceiling windows with unobstructed views overlooking the ocean - it's all about that view. The kitchen was very well thought through and impeccably clean, making eating in a preference! The layout was perfect for us all to either get privacy or hang-out happily do puzzles and watch movies together. Princeville Marketplace and Hanalie town are minutes away by car, and a sunset drink at the St. Regis Hotel is a 4 minutes walk .

The owners were perfect hosts, very attentive to questions, anticipated travel-to questions, offered lots of touring suggestions.

We recommend visiting the Princeville Botanical Gardens, taking a guided tour with the Kayak Hanalei outfit, and a visit to the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge.

The place is what it was portrayed as. Great location, fantastic view, owner was vey helpful and the condo had a book full of things from places where to eat and explore and everything in between. Being on the top floor was even better. I would definitely stay at this property again.

Excellent accommodations, gorgeous view, and amazing communication from the owner. I can't think of any way to make this a more desirable place to spend time on the north shore.
