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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Princeville, HI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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!
