Banana Cabana on Kauai -- Bikes, beach gear, and more!

Bedrooms 3
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Welcome to the Banana Cabana on Kauai!

The Cabana has three comfortable bedroom/bathroom suites which makes it great for families, friends, and couples. Located overlooking the pool and tropical grounds, this corner unit is open, bright, and captures the cool trade wind breezes. You'll enjoy sitting on the large covered lanai that opens to the living area with four large sliding glass doors. The Cabana also has a garage that we keep stocked with beach gear (snorkels, chairs, boogie boards, coolers) and cruiser bikes so that you can travel light and make the most of your stay. Professionally decorated and meticulously maintained with an eye for detail.

Fresh, clean, comfortable and outfitted with everything! Including baby gear- pack n play, highchair, and stroller.

The Cabana is located on the North Shore in the resort community of Princeville. It is a great home base for world class golfing, access to beaches (Hanalei, Tunnels, Anini, Hideaways), and adventure on the Garden Isle. We are located on walking paths along the Princeville golf course fairways. You can follow these paths to the grocery store, restaurants, shops, and nearby beaches. Great tropical trails lead you from the Princeville bluff down to secluded and scenic beaches.

About Doug Hillman Cabana

Our family lives in the Pacific Northwest and we take advantage of the direct flights from Seattle as often as possible. We are geologists by background and work in the environmental sciences, so we enjoy the adventure and exploration that Kauai offers. Our college-aged kids find the beaches and activities around Hanalei much to their liking, as well. We hope you choose to visit! Doug & Lori

Guestbook comments from the owner

We so appreciated how well stocked (beach towels, beach toys, bikes, snorkle gear etc.) your place is. This really cuts down on what you need to pack and/or buy on the Island. We enjoyed how spacious the condo was as well and the beautiful lanai. The complex amentities were well appreciated. We also met some very nice people who were staying in the complex. I have already recommended your place to a number of friends. We are planning on having a big family/friend Kauai trip in 2015 (Christy and I are going to renew or vows (20 years) at the little green church in Hanalei) and will definately try to book the Cabana when we decide on dates.

Pristine, comfortable home with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

This condo made our trip to the north shore so comfortable and relaxing. Nothing was lacking, down to the smallest details (spare battery, ziploc bags, fins and snorkels). The rooms are well appointed, modern, spacious and very comfortable (5 adults and 2 small kids). And the location is super central. Wish the pool was slightly warmer, but we took advantage of the jacuzzi several times.

Gorgeous! Feels like living in a Pottery Barn Catalog in Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing (I almost don’t want to tell anyone how nice it is because I’m afraid it will be booked up the next time we want to come!) My Family of 4 came to Kauai for my wife and my anniversary. We have a 21 year old son who is ready to ditch his life back home and try to live the rest of his life like he did here! My 17 year old daughter also raved about how much fun she had. That’s high praise when you can get kids that age excited about a family vacation. And my wife and I agree, this has been the best vacation rental we have ever had! I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to stay in another hotel and not compare it to this beautiful condo. You won’t be sorry staying here.

I had read multiple reviews about Doug's place before staying there the past 8 days which is why we rented it in the first place. The Cabana was perfect for our young children and the Plantation at Princeville facilities were great. It's centrally located on the north shore for everything we wanted to do, from Tunnels beach to Kaelia beach for boogie boarding to a boat ride along the Na Pali coast. At night when it was too dark to enjoy Hawaiian waters, we soaked in the hot tub, then watched movies--provided by the Cabana--filmed on Kauai. When we planned our trips to the beach, Doug was always one step ahead of us. He had umbrellas, towels, ice chests, cold packs for the ice chests, snorkeling equipment for all 7 of us (my wife and I brought 2 sets just in case but we didn't need them), 4 bikes which we never got to but were at our disposal, and water shoes, which definitely came in handy for multiple activities. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was plenty of blankets, bedding, and room in the condo. The washer and dryer were top notch and very much appreciated. We can't thank Doug enough for making our experience on Kauai extremely enjoyable.

Perfect little cabana!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this condo last minute for a change of scenery from the other side of the island and I am so glad that we did. It was perfect. Nice decor with views of the swimming pool and gardens. The owners were very responsive. The condo has everything you would possibly need- from snorkel gear, beach towels, bikes, boogie boards, and even those little umbrellas for your Mai Tai! I highly recommend.

Perfect layout

  • 5 of 5

Love the layout. The three bedrooms and bathrooms are separate from one another and the condo is spacious. If I ever build a house, it will be this layout. Everything was clean. There are ample bath and beach towels, toilet paper, tissues, laundry soap, paper towels, dish soap, dishwasher soap, a few extra food items left from previous renters, swim goggles, face masks, snorkels, flippers, water shoes, etc. The entire Plantation is very quiet inside and out. This condo is located on the inside of the Plantation and you do not hear street noise.

Costco and Walmart are very close to the Lihue airport, Safeway in Kapaa, and the Foodmart in Princeville has everything.

The Internet was not working when we arrived but Evelyn came the next day and got it working with the help of the cable company. She is very nice.

The golf course is half a block away and has a walking trail around it that goes down to the store, community center, library, etc. Great for exercise and viewing the beautiful green mountains.

Doug was very nice and prompt in returning emails. Everything was easy.

Our second time here in 10 months and love it!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. We visited in November 2016 on our honeymoon and decided to come back to celebrate our one year anniversary. I can't say enough positive things about this place. Clean, comfortable, great location. Highly recommend. Only drawback is we can't visit every year! Mahalo!
