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 40 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, also! We share ownership with my sister, Melinda, who is a private chef. All of our families have traveled to the beautiful island of Kauai, one travels there every year, since we have owned it. Now their friends have fallen in love with Kauai, also. They could have traveled anywhere for their honeymoons...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 40 years. We also love the tropical beaches and weather of the Hawaiian Islands. Our dear friends moved to Kauai nearly 20 years ago and when we visited them 20 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.

Best Family Get Together!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters (3) and I all 4 of us stayed at the condo, and it was perfect! We thought it may be a bit cramped, but no issues at all. . Can't beat the location, very comfortable, and equiped with all that is needed for a delightful stay. We cooked and used the kitchen daily! and there was nothing we needed. Will certainly stay again! can't wait to return to beautiful KAUAI. Thanks Pamela!

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our Princeville home was the perfect vacation spot for us! We loved the wonderful view of the golf course with the ocean just beyond. The home had a beautiful panoramic view from almost every room!

From this location we were able to take our daily walks, make quick runs to the grocery store and even spent time at the beach!

We stay at many homes throughout the year, and we were so impressed and pleased how well the home had everything you needed, especially in the kitchen for food preparation (we really appreciated having the rice cooker!).

We look forward to staying again!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a little over a week and loved it. The place was clean and had everything we needed including everything for the beach! The bed was comfortable and it was great to wake up to the sunrise every morning. Sitting on the patio and watching the golfers was great. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Good Morning! It is so nice to wake up to a sweet review, from one of our guests! Those sunrises are amazing!!! We never tire of the beauty that embraces us, from the time we wake up, to the time we lay our heads on the pillow. The sunsets are beautiful, also if you walk out on the course to the cliff or go out the front door and across to the grass area. Going to the beach is one of our favorite things to do. We love for our guests to feel like they have ALL that they need and some! Thank you for being our guests! We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to write this review! Until next time...make 2017 the BEST!

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!
