Bedrooms 2
Space 1,085 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Among one of the best ocean front views in Princeville, our condominium is located on an ocean bluff at ocean’s edge, and affords you a 180 degree view of the ocean with ocean front views from every room of the condominium except the second bathroom. If you look at our reviews you will see we are often the choice for special occasions such as honeymoons and anniversaries. We are also a great choice for 2 couples since both bedrooms have king size beds and the 2nd bathroom is only 2 steps across the hall so no one is a 'second class' guest. Along with spectacular waves crashing throughout the day and night, you will see an ongoing parade of cruise ships; outrigger paddlers; sea kayaks; humpback whales spending their winter vacation here from about December to April while the females give birth; turtles feeding directly below on the reefs at Turtle Cove; fishermen fishing in the surf at the Sealodge beach; small boats of various descriptions; a cacophony of birds; and exceptional rainbows. You can even lie in bed at night watching and listening to the waves while you drift off to sleep.

The condominium is 1100 square feet and has been completely updated. By “completely updated” my husband says that I should tell you that this means that “the unit was stripped to the studs and totally rebuilt”. The unit is located on the 2nd floor 6 steps up from the parking lot, and is on one level. There are travertine floors throughout, with 3 foot high granite countertops in the kitchen and both bathrooms, and slate tile on the lanai. There is an on site pool with chairs, restrooms and an outdoor shower. Tennis is off site and there is no charge.

The master bedroom has a 4 poster California king Stress O’ Pedic bed, en-suite master bathroom with dual headed marble and glass shower and Sanijet hydromassage tub. The second bedroom has a California king pillow-top bed and a dual headed marble and glass shower located just across the hall. There are extensive mirrors in both bathrooms including a magnifying make up mirror in the master bathroom.

Communications and electronic gear include a 48 inch LCD HD flat screen television and a blue ray Sony DVD player in the living room, a 39” flat screen television with BruRay player in the master bedroom. Cable TV is provided for both TVs and there is a high speed internet and Wi Fi (wireless) connection. A TEAC MP3 and CD player is located in the living room. There are telephones located in the kitchen, master and second bedrooms that provide local service and can be used in conjunction with prepaid long distance calling cards.

Beach paraphernalia include two 42 inch boogie boards, snorkeling equipment for 2 adults (1 male and 1 female including masks, snorkels and fins) and snorkel and masks for 2 children. Beach chairs for 4, coolers, and beach towels for 6 for both pool and ocean days.

We look forward to sharing our Kauai vacation home with you and we would be happy to answer any questions you may have about our unit.

About David Gallacher

I am a photographer and my wife Cate is a retired dietician. We have a cat and and 2 dogs. This is our home for 2 months of the year (Without the animals unfortunately). We enjoy travelling and hiking and all things outdoor. Kauai is a wonderful place to do all these things.

David Gallacher purchased this condo in 2009

Why David Gallacher chose Princeville

We fell in love with Kauai many years ago when we spent our honeymoon here. We have been back many times and finally decided to buy our own condo here. We vacationed at Alii Kai twice and finally decided that we should have our own unit here.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is only minutes from grocery stores, shopping and restaurants. Hanneli is about a 15 minute drive. Hiking, golfing and horse back riding are a short drive away and the scenery is spectacular.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thank you for the opportunity to share in the magnificent beauty of your home. The accomodations were choice. Helpful tips were great as we navigated ourselves w/family and friends around Kauai taking in all we could and then some in a short time.

Capturing the beauty of a sunset & the rise of the full moon on this island is awesome ! Turtle cove is a sight to behold.

Location. Views. Sunrises. Travel Books. Beach Gear. ... Just What We Needed!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and view of the Pacific! Beautiful sunrises seen from both bedrooms and the balcony.

The owners have an amazing library collection. This is important to you because they have lots and lots of Kauai travel books. No need to pack your travel guides! They even have a book just about restaurants on Kauai. You can also learn about the history of the island. The collection also includes snorkeling, yoga, inspiration, fiction, children's books and more!

This condo has all the beach gear you need! Towels, beach chairs, snorkel equipment, fins, short boards, coolers, insulated tote bags. Everything is nice and handy.

What a great place to relax and explore Kauai.

Beautiful location and well equipped condo

  • 4 of 5

This home is very comfortable with beautiful views from the lanai, it's a great home base for visiting beautiful Kauai. The furnishings are very nice with a well-equipped kitchen and plenty of space for preparing and serving meals for 4.

There are lots of great beach toys, everything you need! The large capacity washer and dryer are also very handy indeed. The owner is very responsive to any issues.

Great access to the wonderful beaches and sights of the North Shore, including Turtle Cove just below the building. The views of sunrise from both bedrooms over the ocean are amazing, and we actually saw a couple of whales from the lanai even in mid-May! We can only imagine what it's like in peak whale season. It's also very nice that it's only a few stairs up to the unit, easy to bring luggage in and out.

The recent flooding impacted the lower-lying areas as we couldn't go west past Hanalei School on Rt. 560 when we were there in mid-May 2018, but there are many other great beaches and hikes accessible. The stores and restaurants in Hanalei have recovered and are open for business, so don't let the news stop you from visiting Kauai and helping their economy!

The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was a bit of noise from the upstairs unit, they seemed to be heavy walkers and furniture movers at sunrise for some reason, but this is still a fabulous place for a relaxing week in paradise!

WONDERFUL VIEWS! Beautiful little oasis after a day of adventures.

  • 5 of 5

David's condo was a fantastic little find. We all really enjoyed our stay. We had four people total staying in the condo and there was plenty of space to spread out. We spent every morning on the patio that overlooks the ocean sunrise with our papayas and coffee- truly a paradise. The washer and drier were a godsend after multiple muddy hikes- we didn't have mountain of dirty laundry when we got home! You can tell David actually uses his condo and it isn't just a rental property- all the fixtures in the bathrooms were high end and we had everything we could have needed in the closet (beach gear! extra sheets/blankets! even nail polish remover!). We were originally hesitant with the condo being on the north (read: wetter/colder) side of the island, but it was honestly really nice coming home to a cool breeze after spending the day on the hot south shore beaches. We even went to a nice dinner at the Westin which was just under a mile away from the condo- so it definitely isn't too remote! I would recommend this condo a hundred times over and will make an effort to stay here in the future. Thanks for making Kauai truly feel like a home away from home!

Peaceful & centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We loved listening to the sound of the ocean and the ocean views from every room. The condo had everything we needed to enjoy the island and some time relaxing indoors. We will definitely be back again!

Beautiful updated and well kept Condo with amazing views from all rooms!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better home base for our travels around the Island. Such a great comfortable space to be able to come back to after a day of exploration. Though we were unable to explore the north shore because of the big storm and flooding (which was an adventure of its own), it was not a big deal to travel south most days for hiking & snorkeling. There was plenty of gear for the beach right at the Condo and a great kitchen for cooking many meals or bringing back take out from our travels. We would rent this place again in a heartbeat. Thanks for making our adventure a great one!!!

Comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in David and Cate's condo with our 4 month old son. It was our first time going on vacation with our baby so we were a little apprehensive, not knowing what to expect, what we'd need etc. Fortunately, the condo made our time in Princeville really comfortable. We really appreciated all the amenities, massive master king bed, all the fans to keep us cool, beach equipment, fully equipped kitchen, loads of towels, high-end washer and dryer, and space to sprawl out. The view from the lanai is superb. On top of that, David was super responsive throughout the process. Highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
