About Jim Nicholas
Originally from Philadelphia, followed by Law School in Chicago, I have lived in sunny Florida for the past 31 years, and have been blessed with the opportunity to travel the world many times over, and although I have experienced, first hand, the beauty and adventure of many foreign lands, nothing in my travels compares to the North Shore of Kauai. It is, by far, the most beautiful, exotic, and romantic place on earth...a place where the landscape seems almost unreal...a place where one can truly find a piece of Heaven, right here on earth.
Jim Nicholas purchased this Studio in 2009
Why Jim Nicholas chose Princeville
Hale Moi is conveniently located directly across from Hideaways Beach and the whale watching area...a place to enjoy the spectacular sunsets behind Bali Hi'. This second floor duplex is fully equipped with all the amenities and conveniences of modern living, nestled between the ocean and mountains, with full vistas of both. Truly, the best of both worlds.

great unit in a pleasant setting. lush rain forest backyard view. nice deck with view. very well equipped house and full kitchen with all of the amenities needed. lots of room in the rental unit.
Awesome view of Hanalei
Very clean, comfortable beds, updated kitchen and bath. Great for a couple or family.
Quiet well maintained condo
Close to everything. Jim was extremely helpful with questions and very generous with late checkout. Great view of Hanalei Bay and beautiful jungle. Met out needs. Stayed in both sides of unit and prefer larger side even tho there was just 2 of us. The full kitchen gave us ability to eat in for some of the meals. Quiet unit and close and convenient to everything on north shore, which is what we prefer. Thank you Jim.
Bright, cheery and quiet with the right amount of space for us
Princeville is the prettiest area in Kauai and Jim’s condo was in the perfect location. Thick forest out back with a view of Hanalai bay from the sprawling deck, and walk out front and across the street each night to see the fabulous sunsets. We took short walks to various beaches with snorkels to see the coral reefs and fish. We saw a giant sea turtle one day.
Jim’s place was clean with nice modern touches. The kitchen and bathroom were tastefully remodeled. Soaps, shampoos, sunscreen, laundry detergent were all provided.
Jim was quick to respond by email to a couple if questions that we had while we were there.
I would highly recommend this VRBO!
Cozy, comfy, wonderful stay in Princeville
We stayed on Side 1 and really enjoyed the comfy stay. The owner was very responsive and helpful, going so far as to make sure my keys were mailed back to me when I accidentally left them behind.
My fiance and I stayed in the cozy condo, which has a great lanai (shared with Side 2) and a cute little kitchen and dining area.
The best: well-appointed kitchen and complimentary ground coffee (no filters though!) and other cooking necessities, laundry with included detergent, a sheet with great local recommendations, a designated parking spot for Side 1, and a beautiful view out to the Tree Tops. Hideaways Beach is walkable, though we ended up going to a different beach every day across the island in the interest of exploring. The space was perfect for a couple, as others have mentioned, the loft area is a bit small and not super well ventilated.
What could improve: Wifi speed wasn't always great and noise from other units is pretty noticeable because walls are thin.
Overall, the good FAR outweighs the minor cons, I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Miss it already!
Fantastic Stay on Kauai North Shore
Jim's condo is pleasantly decorated, roomy, and very well equipped. We loved the location, especially the quick access to Hanalei Bay, Queen's Bath, and local groceries/dining. The soft and comfortable king bed and sheets, luggage racks, bathroom amenities, laundry facilities (including detergent supply) were greatly appreciated. Jim was also very prompt to answer any questions and offer advice on places to visit or dine. Highly recommended for a visit to Kauai. We would definitely stay here again!
Hale Moi is in a unique location directly across from The Whale Watching area and the South Pacific ocean with spectacular views of nearby Bali Hai' against the backdrop of the famous Hanalei Bay (home of 'Puff the Magic Dragon'), and only steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches on earth. The North Shore of Kauai is the very reason it's called "The Garden Isle".
Other Activities: kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, boating, parasailing, wildlife viewing, and a nearby health/beauty spa.
Golf: The newly re-designed Makai Golf Course is located just behind the condo and the Princeville Golf course is nearby. The condo is also located just a few steps from the entrance to the newly remodeled St. Regis Hotel (formerly the Princeville Hotel) where you can enjoy fine dining and cocktails at the Bali Hai Bar, St. Regis.
