Plantation Style Luxury Home on Golf Course with Stunning Views

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,400 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Hale Honoiki is a classic Hawaiian plantation style getaway with a second story lanai that extends around the entire house. Affords magnificent views of ocean, mountains and waterfalls. The large sliding glass doors in each room allow the trade winds to keep the house cool, accompanied by brand new air conditioning in every room. It has every amenity desired for gourmet cooking, playing at the beach, and keeping the kids happy. (toys, boogie boards, and books for the children)

The home is located in a quiet neighborhood on the second hole of the Makai Golf Course. It is less than one-half block from the Hanalei Bay Resort and a 10 minute walk to the closest beach. The local beach is inside the protective reef in front of the Princeville St Regis Hotel, with good snorkeling. The Hanalei Bay Resort is a few doors down if you want to walk down for a drink or a meal with Bali Hai as your backdrop.

Combining rustic elm furniture with the vibrant blues, corals and greens the home has a calming coastal vibe. It has four bedrooms and three baths, one outside shower, and one main kitchen. In a Hawaiian paradise like Princeville, it’s imperative that the outdoor living areas take full advantage of the home’s tropical surroundings. There are three seating areas on the lanai. At the front entrance of the home, we included a space where guests can watch the sunrise over the iconic Kauai mountains. At the back of the house we created an outdoor dining area, as well as a separate cozy seating area for watching sunsets while enjoying a glass of wine or a Mai Tai. It is surrounded by tropical gardens with ginger, oranges, lemons, limes, papayas, pineapples, bananas, orchids and a multitude of flowers. There is also a ground floor patio and tropical hardwood deck, facing the golf course.

There are two master bedroom suites, a garden suite, a playful double twin room and a cozy sleeping loft all within ear shot of a heavy surf. The surroundings wash away stress and a good night sleep is inevitable after experiencing the variety of activities here on the island.

It is located 27 miles from the Lihue Airport and close to the convenience of the Princeville Center with market, restaurants & shops. It is 4 miles from Hanalei town.

About Christine Kollmorgen and Charles Zachem

When we are not enjoying the sun and fun of Kauai with our family, we are back home in Eugene, Oregon working and raising 4 great kids.

Christine Kollmorgen and Charles Zachem purchased this house in 2000

Why Christine Kollmorgen and Charles Zachem chose Princeville

Our family fell in love with Kauai on vacation. Some of our best memories involve the beautiful north shore. We have traveled to many parts of the world but feel this is one of the most special places on earth. The area is enjoyed by all ages, appeals to those with an adventuresome spirit and washes away the stress of everyday life back at home. The diversity of the area affords all types of outdoor experiences and we look forward to a new discovery every time we visit.

What makes this house unique

We love fresh fish on the grill, relaxing with friends on the lanai and watching the sunset over Bali Hai. The lush mountainous backdrop with waterfalls and rainbows are right out front for all to enjoy. Fruit and flowering trees abound, remind us that this island is truly a natural garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bill and Cheri: I just wanted to tell you both how much our family enjoyed staying at your Princeville home from December 28-January 3rd. What a gem of a property! Such a large, wonderful home in a beautiful location. We were so impressed with how well-stocked the house was--kitchen items, boogie boards, towels, chairs...I could go on and on. You had absolutely everything anyone would need for a week in Kauai. It was so perfect for our large group. I love the entire neighborhood. I rode a bike around the neighborhood a couple of times and thought it was just lovely. As usual, whenever I travel somewhere, I come home thinking about the possibility of purchasing a property of our own in the area we visited. But I have a lot of favorite places to travel to, so that never seems to happen. But it was just wonderful to visit there and spend time at your home.

Thanks so much again--C. K.

A lovely house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 3 young daughters, and my in-laws spent 9 nights in this house in the middle of October. Before arriving, I didn't realize what an awesome location it has. From the back deck, you have a lovely view of the golf course, Bali Hai, and the ocean. From the front of the house, there's an unobstructed view of Hanalei Falls, which is so impressive after a rainstorm. The Happy Talk Lounge is a block away. And you can walk to Puu Poa Beach (the beach below the St Regis Resort) in about 10 minutes. It's worth noting that Puu Poa Beach was swimmable, even for my 6-year-old, every day we were there. Other popular beaches (like Tunnels) had high surf during our stay. Anyway, the house is beautiful and well maintained, as others have noted. There is also a lot of high-quality vacation gear in the garage (bikes, snorkel gear in every size, coolers, etc). We also really enjoyed having fruit straight off of the trees on the property. The orange tree was in full production and we had fabulously delicious oranges almost every day we were there. We can't wait to go back.

A beautiful and most comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home, most highly recommended. The house is stocked full of every amenity, from stationery supplies to beach gear, even a comprehensive first aid supply, and there seems to be a revolving door of cooking aids from guests, resulting in a really well-stocked pantry! Not only is the house extremely clean and expertly maintained, it's very beautiful, and cozy. The beds are top quality, we all slept like babies, even the babies! The wrap around lanai and outdoor shower are highlights of this property; the option of AC was quite a luxury, although the ceiling fans sufficed for most of our stay. One surprise was that the "garden suite" downstairs is actually its own large separate unit from the rest of the house, with a separate entry, one thing to keep in mind for future renters. Although it has both AC and ceiling fans, we noticed a bit of mustiness in the downstairs suite. The loft space/play area is super cute, but really hot when we were there, in July. This house provided plenty of space for three couples and three young children. The owners' property descriptions are very accurate, and I think it looks even better in person than the pictures! Christine was always prompt and friendly in responding to any questions. Thames the manager was also extremely attentive and helpful with our check-in. All in all, the best vacation rental I've experienced yet, this home and its diligent owners have set the bar high!

Elegant and delightful home. Everything is just right and thought through. One of the few times when the location was actually better than the pictures and descriptions.
