About the property

"Home Away From Home" Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, Sleeps 2-4

For Honeymooners, newly in love, wedding on the beach, to outdoor enthusiasts and those just looking to unwind, this special place has been known to make you fall in love and you when the day comes to go home, the joy you find is the memories you created and you can't wait to book your next vacation here, as quickly as you can.

You awake to catch the awesome sunrise, while sitting on the lanai with your cup of freshly brewed local coffee. Contemplating what adventures will we explore today. We start with a stroll along Hanalei Bay for our morning walk, find our favorite cafe's for breakfast or grab some yummy fruit from the local Farmer's Market, to eat at the condo. I also pick up freshly cut Tropical Flowers at the Farmer's Market, to add to all the Plumeria fragrance that embrace our condo. Perhaps some golf today? Snorkel in Ke'e Beach at the end of the road?

Or we pack up our insulated backpacks with enough goodies to last a full day at the beach, for playing in the surf, paddle boarding or just enjoying the beauty that embraces you. Kids, dogs, adults frolicking in the bay, watching the others strolling along the old Hanalei Pier, taking photos, kids jumping off into the bay, laughter and sounds of excitement abound. Then you look up to this majestic mountain where the crown is always hiding in the cloud, with white ribbons of falls cascading down, against green velvet. You just sit back take a deep breath and say, 'Wow, I am living my dream!'

Please enjoy our 'Premium Deluxe Setting & Location' at a 'Very Affordable' price. It has been recently updated ( June 2015) and comfortable, offers all that you need. It is very loved! Priced as a casual condo, undervalued for the setting, location and views!

Keywords: Ground Floor, walk right out to 2 lanais, onto the Princeville Makai PGA Championship Golf Course, a 2 min. stroll and you are overlooking the ocean.

About Pamela Francis

I am a Realtor in South Lake Tahoe, which has been my home of 37 years. I have raised my family here. Ray and I have blended our beautiful families in Lake Tahoe and they have all fallen in love with our Kauai getaway or will very soon! We share ownership with my sister, Melinda, who is a private chef. One of our daughters is recently married and she has traveled to the beautiful island of Kauai every year, since we have owned it. Now her husband and friends have fallen in love with Kauai, also. They could have traveled anywhere for their honeymoon...their choice? Kauai, there is no place more romantic. If I can assist you with any answers to your questions regarding Kauai, real estate or Lake Tahoe, I am a wealth of information. I am always happy to share. Just call or e-mail, anytime!

Pamela Francis purchased this condo in 2003

Why Pamela Francis chose North Shore

We have lived in the beautiful mountains of Lake Tahoe for 37 years. We miss the tropical beaches and weather of the Hawaiian Islands. Our dear friends moved to Kauai 15 years ago and when we visited them 15 years ago, we fell in love with Kauai. Now we have the best of both paradises.

What makes this condo unique

It offers views of all the beauty Kauai has to offer. The location? You are literally minutes of driving to ALL the activities we love to do. Our location is so special, so quiet, just the birds, the ocean, the rain and those sweet chickens & roosters(don't feed) that simply come with Kauai. No Shore Kauai is so Tranquil and VERY Magical!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Three weeks back on the mainland with lots of nice memories. Thank you for sharing your lovely condo with us. It is really nice location and we had a wonderful time. Watching the albatross(s) was a particularly unique experience. After being there we don't think the pictures do it justice as we felt the condo was much more spacious than the pics showed it. We aren't photographers, so can't tell you how to do it better, but we just liked the place better than the pics. We definitely would go back should we return.

Quiet, cozy condo

  • 4 of 5

We chose this condo for our honeymoon on Kauai.


- Kitchen & beach amenities. We loved having all the beach towels, chairs, and cooler that we'd pack up everyday. The kitchen was well stocked, except most of the tupperware containers did not have matching lids. We loved the wine glasses to enjoy a glass of wine on the lanai at night.

- How quiet the property was in the morning and evening.

- The beautiful sunrises

- The large, sliding glass doors were nice to get a breeze into the house on hot days because the condo doesn't have A/C. Also was nice to have extra fans for this same reason.

- Washer & Dryer!!

- The Kauai guidebook that is available is such an awesome resource to use! It was so helpful in picking out beaches to go to or places to see.


- The shower seemed a little dated/dingy/old. Could use a serious deep clean or remodeling.

- A bigger bed. We have a queen sized bed at home and this condo advertises having a queen bed but it seemed more like a double size.

- Location did not end up being the best for us. We spent most of our time on the south shore or west shore due to it being very rainy in Princeville during our stay. Not on the fault of the Owner or rental at all. Just something we experienced.

- As much as we loved the beach amenities, the towels could be replaced as they are getting old, hole-y, thin.

The owner had great communication from day 1! We really appreciated it with it being our honeymoon and first time to Kauai. I would recommend this condo for a couple looking to escape busy life and wanting to relax.

Owner's Response: Aloha Honeymooners! We so appreciate your time, for writing a very detailed review! We are thrilled you enjoyed our condo and all that we offer. I simply wanted to mention: Regarding the QUEEN bed? It is a brand new(a few weeks old) Queen size bed. It must be the lack of a head and foot board that makes it feel smaller? The beach towel comment is so helpful. We will get them replaced, promptly. The bathroom has been a fun project. New flooring, closet doors, toilet, sink faucet and paint. The last detail is replacing the tub and installing a large shower. It is fully functional just sea air and a corner of discoloration on the tub deck. Regarding A/C? Yes, a common remark. We publish in all our online marketing, no A/C here. That is a luxury item you will find in your high end hotels or time shares. Thank you for mentioning we have fans and even better, the "trade winds". They are awesome when you open those large sliders and the front door. It is so thoughtful of you to mention that I was simply an e-mail or phone call away. I have been in the service industry all my life and I take great pride in always being available for my guests. Fortunately, I seldom hear from our guests. Always a good sign! I wish you both an eternity of joy, good health and many more tropical vacations!

Most amazing condo! Most amazing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

If there was an option to give more than 5 stars, we gladly would! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pamela's GORGEOUS condo. The location was wonderful. It is right on a golf course. There is such natural wildlife milling around. It was awesome to see all the different kinds of birds right out back while sitting on the lanai. The condo was clean, large and perfect for a quiet getaway to end our Hawaiian adventure. The kitchen was incredibly spacious and had everything (down to the CUTEST little wooden coffee scooper!). We ended up getting groceries from the Foodland Grocery store (3 minutes away) and cooking a lot of our meals in the condo. Having a private BBQ was also a plus. We ate several meals at the table on the back lanai while watching sky change colors as the sun set. We ended up using lots of the beach equipment and took it with us to discover new beaches on the island. It was so nice to have the beach chairs, an umbrella, snorkeling stuff and boogey boards. Although most of the activities we did were located more toward the south of the island, and required some long drives, we wouldn't trade our stay in Princeville for anything. Pamela was awesome to work with. She was easy to contact and answered all of our questions. I loved the color scheme of the condo so much, she even got me the names of the different paint colors she used. I may try to recreate it in our home! We cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful stay, Pamela. We hope that we can return to Kauai in the future and stay at your lovely place!

Amazing Value! (Even for Canadians.😉)

  • 5 of 5

As a belated 40th anniversary gift, my husband and I decided to travel to the beautiful Hawaiian island of Kaua'i. We are RCI members and thought we would book through them. FORTUNATELY for us, there was very little available so we checked out the Homeaway website and found Pamela's wonderful condo in Princeville. Even with the exchange rate this was much better value than any timeshare we've stayed in. Not only did the condo provide everything we needed for our week's stay (wifi, large screen TV, barbecue, cork screw ;) etc.- as Canadians our only request would be a kettle for our morning tea), BUT the location on the 15th fairway overlooking the ocean was beyond anything we could have ever imagined.. The pictures really didn't do it justice. Everything was perfect! First of all, we couldn't believe how quiet it was! All we could ever hear was the lovely sound of the waves crashing on the shores below and the sweet notes of songbirds in the trees around us (Before we left, I videotaped the sights and these sounds as a wonderful memory of our vacation.) That first night, sitting on the lanai, looking out at the beautiful view, we toasted ourselves on our great choice. The lovely community of Princeville, situated between the mountains and ocean, where the condo is located, offers so many amenities in addition to shaded treed walkways and the golf course. There is also a small shopping plaza within walking distance to get groceries and an ice cream treat. The small town of Hanalei is only a 10 minute scenic drive away and has great places to eat as well as several specialty gift and craft stores. The local market on Tuesdays provides lots of homegrown produce and homemade foods for lunches and suppers at the condo. AND OF COURSE, there are the many magnificent and very natural beaches located in every direction around Princeville that you can visit every day for sunbathing, swimming or surfing. Our week went very fast but we will DEFINITELY book Pamela's condo again. It felt like home! It was a pleasure to deal with Pamela before and after our trip. She was always quick to respond to any of our requests and queries. Thank you, Pamela, for sharing your Hawaiian paradise with us!

Owner's Response: A BIG Thank You!!!! We so appreciate your time to write this amazing review! It warms our hearts! You are so kind to have gone at great length, to describe all the amenities of our condo, the setting, location and the amazing beauty of the island. I can't imagine a future guest, reading your delightful review, that wouldn't immediately book our condo. We have been so fortunate to have guests that have enjoyed all the things we love about our home away from home and Princeville. We will look forward to hearing from you, for your next amazing trip to Kauai! Your review is 5 stars!

Great Condo and Location

  • 5 of 5

I looked for 3 weeks on which city to stay in before I finally booked the trip. Thank God that we chose this condo and the location. I almost booked in Kapaa which had many homeless people on the beach path. Princeville was VERY nice and the location and the view are outstanding. The condo had everything that we needed and more. It was easy to drive the entire island, but the north was the most relaxing area on the island and had the best beaches. There is a grocery store within 3 minutes from the condo. We stopped at Costco when we flew in and the prices were very good. The views of the ocean, the flowers, and the birds around the unit were very nice. The unit is in a very clean safe area and was easy to find. My wife and I like to travel and have never returned to the same location. This was such a nice location and island we may return in the future. Working with Pamela to book the condo was easy and we got our deposit back in about a week. There is a reason that this locations has such great reviews. Just book it!

Awesome Condo Best value in Kauai!!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 amazing days at Pamela’s beautiful condo it has an amazing view of the ocean and it sits by the 15th fairway of the Princeville Hanalei Makai golf course (a beyond beautiful community) so well manicured. The condo has everything you could possibly need there including all you need to have fun outdoors exploring this beautiful island.

I went alone and this was my first time in Kauai and Pamela was always available to me, she was like my virtual tour guide. I saw some of the most amazing sunrise’s right there at her condo having my tea planning my day of adventure. This condo is so beautifully decorated it has vaulted ceilings with all glass floor to ceiling on the back yard side right on the golf course & ocean view side of the house. It’s located on one of the most beautiful communities in Kauai the grounds are so clean and so well manicured. This place is beyond beautiful so close to the best beaches, the caves all the places you need to see and experience when you come to this tropical paradise. I highly recommend this condo, I can’t wait till I can come back, will stay here again for sure! Thank you Pamela for making this vacation a dream come true experience for me!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your wonderful vacation, Mimi! We are delighted that you enjoy our condo, the No Shore and Kauai, as much as we do. The beaches, the golf courses and Hanalei are where we spend most of our time. I understand you were truly in Paradise with your camera. Your photos are spectacular! I am so happy you enjoyed simply hanging out on our lanai, on the 15th Fairway of the Makai Golf Course, being entertained by the Albatrosses, waking up with the beautiful sunrises and ending the day, looking at the stars, while listening to the crashing of the waves. We feel so lucky to have had this unit come on the market, when we were looking 14 years ago. We enjoy our visits more and more each time we spend our vacations there. It's never enough time there. We are so happy you found our Princeville condo provided you with everything you desired, in your amazing vacation! We will look forward to your return visit! Mahalo! Pamela

Amazing stay in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic stay in this condo. We arrived in the evening. It's right on the golf course, just a few hundred yards from the ocean. The place was clean and well appointed. The couches, chairs and bed were all comfy and we loved the lanai. We sat out on the lanai the first night. It was so peaceful and so dark that we could look up and see millions of stars in the sky. I've never seen as many stars as I saw there and to have the sound of the ocean in the background was amazing. We had breakfast on the lanai every morning watching the sun come up and the albatrosses running along the fairway trying to take flight. Every day we would dip into the beach toy closet and pull out what we were going to use that day; snorkel equipment, boggie boards, beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler to pack a lunch. We were gone most of the day sightseeing and stopping at beaches along the way. We would return home in the evening to see the sun set and sit out on the lanai. It was a wonderful relaxing vacation for the two of us. We would definitely recommend this condo.

I am so happy you had a wonderful and relaxing stay. We will look forward to your return visit to the No Shore of Kauai! Have an AWESOME 2016!
