About the property

* See below for multiple person pricing.

This extraordinary 3800 sq ft home is just across the street from a private snorkel beach just below the house. The home is 3 stories with fountains, inside and out, tapestries, and over 30 tropical, ornamental and fruit trees. All appliances, kitchen ware, dishes, towels, linens and furniture are top of the line.

The house has 4 complete with beautiful garden views, one with views of the water falls on NaPali (the cliffs). and one with 2 queen bedrooms and standing ocean views that can be separated into two private queen rooms or left as one large 2 bedroom suite. The great room on the main floor has an 8' granite dining bar and a mahogany table that seats 8. There is also outside covered dining tables on 2 large decks. The media room has 2 wine coolers built into the wet bar, 55'plasma, iPod hook up, surround sound Bose speakers and wifi through out the house. Both the upper and lower floors have 16' sliders that open to beautiful views and to the 10,000 square feet of lawn, flowers and fruit trees. Six months of the year we have Albatross nests in our back gardens.

The 280 sq ft covered lanai has fabulous sunset and waterfall views, and seats 8+ for lighted outdoor dining and cocktails. The cozy flower covered pergola on the main deck is a perfect place to sit for a shaded breakfast in the garden. The trade winds create a lovely breeze throughout the house year round, however there are large ceiling fans in every room. The three main baths are large, with custom tile work. And the master has a luscious new 6' jacuzzi. There is also a half bath in the hall.

A beautiful (world reknown) 2-3 mi white crescent shaped beach is just 8 min. away in the quaint village of Hanalei, where you'll also find great restaurants and a fish market where the fish is still moving (sushi)! So grab the beach chairs, toys, towels, boogy boards, umbrellas, and coolers from the laundry room and head on down to Hanalei to boogie board in the turquoise water! You and your friends and family will love it here.

From Dec. to late July, we also have Albatross who nest in our garden. It is a remarkable sight and we are very honored with their presence.

We are 5 minutes from 2 beautiful Troon golf courses and a 10 min drive to the famous Prince Course. We're also a 10 min drive from horse back riding, zip lines, kayaking, hiking, all board sports and great bars and restaurants.

About Lyn & Bill Binch

We fell in love with Princeville 20 years ago and we bought our first home in 2003. It was a tiny 2 bedroom with a little screened in lanai. We just wanted to get a feel for a second home and life in Kauai. Our kids went nuts when they came and since there wasn't room for the whole family, we stared the search for a bigger house. We found our perfect home in '06. We gutted it and began a year long plus, total remodel on our current home on Kaweonui. We both love Italy and have traveled there often, so we settled for an Italian motif. We just started renting 4 years ago and we have been so happy to share our beautifulTuscan style home with all our wonderful, respectful guests. Lyn & Bill

Lyn & Bill Binch purchased this house in 2007

Why Lyn & Bill Binch chose Princeville

The walk to the lovely, private snorkel beach below the house takes less than 15 minutes and you can actually swim with turtles. The drive to Hanalei Beach, voted the #1 beach in the US, is 10 min. away. The 2+ mi. crescent shaped, uncrowded, white sand beach with clear turquoise water (all sand bottom) is idyllic. With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths we can bring our whole family with us for a fabulous vacation and so can you. We'd love to have you, Lyn & Bill

What makes this house unique

It is beautifully furnished and everything is new from flatware, to beds, to tapestries, to the 8' mahogany dinning table. We have 24 hour security and wonderful neighbors. There are Albatross nests on property 6 months every year. There's lots of fruit trees, flowers and a huge grassy backyard. There are beautiful sunset views from the large upper and lower decks, and magnificent waterfall and Na Pali views. There are beautiful tapestries through out the house, huge ceiling fans in every room, large outside grill, a flower trellis, expresso machine, all high quality appliances, utensils, and beach wares including chairs, boogie boards, shades tents, umbrellas, and coolers.

Wonderful vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week stay here. The house was lovely and worked well for our group of seven.

Lyn was so helpful from the start of our planning to the end of our stay. The location of the house was great for getting to the close by beaches, shopping and dining. We loved snorkeling at Anini Beach with the sea turtles all around us. Walked to Queens Bath from the house, the parking there is very limited so it was nice to be able to go on foot, beautiful and well worth the walk. The private beach below the house was fairly easy to get to just be careful after it has rained. We had such a great time! Thanks Lyn and Bill for sharing your home 😊

Beautiful house in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed for a wonderful stay with one small exception. I guess we aren't tropical people and we were traveling with a 5 month old, but in the hottest part of the day there was really no place to go to cool off. We would have loved to have possibly one bedroom with an AC unit just for a break, or even a couple more fans. The nights cooled off for good sleeping however. The kitchen was very well stocked with all the dishes and cookware you would ever need. There was also a very nice grill. The fridge and cupboards were well stocked with basics like salt, sugar, condiments, etc. saving us many trips to expensive Foodland. The beds were very comfortable and the three bedrooms with private bathrooms were nice to allow our extended family some private time if we wanted it. We were fascinated by the four albatross chicks in the neighborhood, watching their parents come feed them as well as watching them change from their baby down to full plumage. The neighbors we met were very nice and helpful. It was a lovely home for a week's vacation.

My only other caveat would be the description of the path down to the beach as being a fairly easy but steep hike. A big factor in choosing the home was this private beach. We are a family of fairly athletic people and we found the path to be much more difficult than advertised. We were expecting a moderate ten minute hike down to the water but were surprised by both the steepness of the trail and the difficult stretch of lava rocks to be scrambled over at the end, needing the use both hands and feet to lower yourself down over them. It had been raining a lot so there was a lot of treacherous slippery mud to deal with as well. Also, the water was quite shallow over the reef coral so it was not a good swimming beach.

Many thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Binch who went out of their way to make us comfortable.

Owner's Response: Hi Teddy and Karin, thank you for the 5*, we are so happy you had such a great time. I'll just take a minute to respond to your comments. You are absolutely right, when it is raining the path down to our beautiful little beach below the house is muddy and slippery. Best to wait for a dry day and medium tide for swimming. Or take the 11 min drive to Hanalei beach. It was voted the most beautiful beach in the US, and it is! The most important thing for us is that our guests are happy and comfortable. I always send our guests info including phone numbers of our "helpers". Call them for anything you need. We do have ceiling fans in every room and 5 more in the garage. Just ask!

The perfect Kauai vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves Kauai–the most relaxing and beautiful of all the islands. We've been there several times and have stayed at several other homes over the years, but this one is by far the best in terms of location, owner responsiveness, cleanliness, etc.

First of all, the location is as good as it could be. Quiet, peaceful, and with easy access to a secluded semi-private beach–a true gem.

The owners have been fantastic throughout the process. Everything went smoothly, but I have no doubt that if you have a problem Lyn or Bill will jump on it quickly and efficiently.

The house itself was even better than we expected–and immaculately clean.

Bottom-line: We spent seven days in heaven ... and when we go back to Kauai, this house will be our first choice.

A wonderful and spacious home in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (which included 5 adults) spent 9 days in Princeville at this house. It was a very spacious home and afforded everyone lots of privacy as well as space to be able to all gather. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked most of our meals while we were there. Lyn was so very helpful, both before and after the trip. We had a couple of questions while we were there and her neighbors were extremely helpful, going out of their way for us. We loved the Princeville area - it was so beautiful and relaxing, much more our taste than the South short and will come back one day. We drove to beaches which were very close. The younger adults were able to walk to the beach down from the house, however, I made it half way and decided it was not a safe walk for me. There had been rain and it was slippery and steep. All in all, a fantastic house to stay in. Thanks Lyn!

Large luxurious home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Lyn's home. The house is beautiful, very spacious, well maintained spotless and decorated ( even fresh cut flowers ). we stayed with our 3 teenage boys and everybody had a space of their own and a large common room to hang out together. We enjoyed the plentyful beach equipment ( chairs, mats, Bugy boards, towels, coolers) and the beautiful yard with a nesting albatross and lemon tree bearing fruits. In the evenings we enjoyed movies ( from the local redbox and at the home ) on the home theater system. When we needed to talk with the owner ( I lost the email with the directions to the home) she was very quick to response and very friendly . Thank you for this wonderful " home away from home" as our youngest declared.

Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a great location! The house is clean and in a very good location. The house is set up perfectly for a large family of six with plenty of room for our young kids to play inside and out. Our kids loved the hiking adventure to the secluded beautiful beach. We also enjoyed watching the albatrosses. We definitely plan on coming back!
