About Doreen Donnelly

Brian and Doreen Donnelly live in the Bay Area. We have 3 children and we have been going to Kauai for the last 15 years. We fell in love with the North Shore the first time we went there and we are thrilled to have just purchased our wonderful Nihilani condominium. We can only hope you and your family love the Princeville area as much as we do! We know you will love our condo and hopefully will want to keep coming back!

Doreen Donnelly purchased this condo in 2009

Why Doreen Donnelly chose Princeville

Every time we go to Kauai we feel like we've left our crazy mainland life behind and we can relax, smell the Kona coffee, and enjoy some family time in paradise!

Eddies Hula Hut was everything our family needed

  • 5 of 5

Situated in Princeville the Nialani Condo development is one of the nicest in the area. The location of the unit is excellent, very close to the pool and BBQ area, which makes it much easier when it’s grill time. We stayed with our two adult children and their wife and girlfriend and found the layout perfect for six adults. Close to Hanelai and Annini beaches which were our favorites as well as many excellent restaurants. The beach amenities provided were well used (chairs, snorkel gear, umbrella etc) The pool iarea is beautiful and the hot tub is VERY clean. The garage fit two cars but it’s a little tricky to back into due to a tight angle and shared driveway with two other condos. You can’t park outside so you must get your car or cars inside every time. Overall we’d highly recommend this condo!

Amazing Condo with everything you will need or want

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed here over New Years, myself and my bride, kids 17 and 15, and my wife's parents, two active 68 year olds. Everyone agreed that this was the nicest condo we have rented during any of our Hawaii vacations. So big and beautifully furnished, and equipped with everything we could possibly need. Beds are so comfy, the master bathroom is bigger than my first house, and fixtures and finishes are like new - especially the kitchen - which is stunning.

Having a garage is nice too, as the rental car was never super hot when we needed to go somewhere. The owners have provided everything you could need, as many other renters have mentioned. Someone used the bikes almost daily, and we used the beach chairs, coolers, and boogie boards every day. The owners have also taken the time and caring to put together a fully detailed information binder at the condo, with a ton of good ideas for things to do and places to eat, farmers markets, beaches, golf course info (you get a discount as a Nihilani renter), excursions, list of grocery stores and maps, etc etc. - this was very nice to have! There is A/C, but we did not need it once during our stay, with all the windows that can be opened, the many fans, and the cool breezes. We all did a lot of walking while there, as the location is perfect to access the many areas around the golf course and hotels. We found we went down to Hanalei a lot for dinners – Hanalei Gourmet and Kalypso were highlights for the adults, and the kids voted Chicken in a Barrels’ burgers best on the island!

We met Michele, the property manager, as she came to deliver some brand new frying pans one day and check how everything was for us. She and her son (Ryan?) look after the property very nicely; it is beautifully kept and the pool and garbage areas well maintained.

Communication with Doreen was super fast, both during booking and upon arrival. I highly recommend this property!

Loved this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need is at this lovely beautifully decorated condo!! Boogie boards, 2 surf boards, chairs, umbrella, beach towels, swim shoes and more. Our grandchildren loved the 2 bikes that were here and rode them around the complex at every chance they had. Even though the pool was steps away from this condo, they had to ride the bikes down the street first before heading to the pool!! This is a 3 bedroom plus a den that has a twin bed - all beds were super comfy with great quality bedding. Bathroom towels were thick and absorbent. The kitchen is well equipped with just about everything that you would need. The only thing that we were looking for and didn't find was a crock pot. Beaches were close as well as a grocery store and other little stores. The owners were awesome to deal with - very prompt in replying to our emails. This was a fantastic place to stay!!!!! We loved it here!!!

sharp knives in the kitchen,

Beach toys!

Downstairs and master bedroom are dark since there are no ceiling lights at all

Garage is not made for two cars, if you plan to use it for two cars you'll have to have everyone get of out the car first and park them inches apart.

Owner's Response: Thanks Drew. Parking is a bit tight in the garage. We suggest a cocktail when you get into the condo to relieve any parking-induced stress! Aloha, Brian
