'Hale 'O Imi Loa' (Hawaiian for 'House of Christopher', and named after our son Chris) is located in a quiet, remarkably beautiful residential area of Princeville, in a charming cul-de-sac with a view of Makana Mountain, renowned for the 'Bali Hai' rock, recognized in dozens of Hollywood movies. If peace and quiet is your thing, this is the place for you. Best described as modest, cozy, quiet, and cottage-like. Access (either through hiking, walking, or driving) to major attractions is literally minutes away: island helicopter tours, horseback riding, golfing, zipping, scuba diving, beaches.
Privacy and quiet are the hallmarks of this home, and is a major reason we decided to own it. Staying here has more of a 'this is what it feels like to live in Hawaii' quality and less like being surrounded by hustle and bustle. The property is very child-friendly, has a variety of huge palm trees, and numerous varieties of flora and fauna. The swishing of palm trees and the soft sound of occasional showers adds to a truly unique tropical experience. Tables and chairs in both front and back yards (grass in the backyard, red bricked patio in the front) invite breakfast, dinner, relaxation.

The backyard is lined on one side with ten-foot hibiscus hedges, and is private. Just beyond the hedge is a public access to a football-sized all-grass park, accommodating baseball, football, soccer, volleyball, and/or badminton. There are many board games (chess, cards, etc.) in the linen closet as well. Our four-year-old granddaughter loves to fill the birdfeeder in the back yard, and sprinkle birdseed (can be purchased at the local Ace Hardware and/or Foodland supermarket)for literally dozens of native wild-bird species, as well as a family or two of chickens, roosters, and baby chicks! You won't believe the bird festivity! Watching the birds is an activity unto itself. We usually do the feedings in the morning and early evening. The birds wait for us at those times! Our granddaughter says her favorite thing to do in Hawaii is 'chase the chickens!'...moreless

About: Aloha! Prue and I have a home in Palo Alto, California, and have lived here for the past 32 years. Prue is presently a registered nurse at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, and I am a retired educator. Prue grew up on Key Biscayne (the northern-most island of the Florida keys) and Miami, and I in a small agricultural town in the San Joaquin River Delta. Prue's love of island warm waters and my childhood experience with rivers (our family had a summer home north of San Francisco in the Russian River area) made us shoe-ins for water-related vacations. My father was stationed at Pearl Harbor during World War II, and frequently talked fondly (even into his golden years) of Hawaii, and its stunning atmosphere. In short, Prue feels more at home in tropical environments, and I had always wanted to go to Hawaii. When our two children (girl and boy) were 12 and 14 respectively, we vacationed (1984) on Kauai. We decided to vacation here as Prue had previously lived in Princeville, and worked as a nurse in 1975. Kauai is the 'Garden Isle', and is arguably considered the most consistently lush in the Hawaiian island chain. Our experience was life-changing! The kids were 'blown away' by the snorkeling, hiking the Na Pali trail/coastline, swimming with moray eels and giant green 'honu' (Hawaiian for 'turtle'), the breath-taking waterfalls, and our first Hawaiian luau! We were ready to move right then! When I retired from teaching, we used inheritance money to purchase our island dream- home in Princeville where our spirits were so moved to love this magnificent place on earth. We wish to keep it in our family, and our family's family for as long as possible. At present, we have three wonderful and beautiful grand-daughters. Our four-year-old grand-daugher so often says her favorite thing about our place is chasing the roosters and chickens in the morning and evening! Mahalo! Prue and Jim
Why Princeville, HI, USA:
First and foremost in our decision to buy a vacation rental in Princeville is its breath-taking vistas, the richness of the flora and fauna, the lack of crowds, and the number of beaches. We chose the North Shore of Kauai as one can walk the long beaches, and be totally alone, so much so that often you see no one for as far as the eye can see! You feel as if you are on a deserted island. The feeling, for us, enriches, nourishes, and heals us like no other place on earth.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The benefits of staying at our home are many. Aside from the views, the smells, and the access to so many activities, the greater benefit is internal. This unique home captures the indoor-outdoor Hawaiian feel. It is a retreat for privacy and comfort for couples, as well as for fun and safety for children. Another important benefit is its affordability!
