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. When the day comes to go home, the joy you find are 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 at 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. Our home is clean and comfortable, offers all that you need. It is very loved! Priced as a casual condo, undervalued for the setting, location and views!

Keywords: Ocean Views from almost every window, Ground Floor, walk right out to 2 lanais, onto the Princeville Makai PGA Championship Golf Course, a 2 min. stroll and you are on the rim, 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 Princeville

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.

Sunrise view

  • 5 of 5

This condo was truly wonderful! The condo is on the golf course but you can see and hear the ocean. Your morning view is a Sunrise from the bed. House was furnished very well. The kitchen was really nice. We cooked breakfast and supper at the condo so we were grateful that the pots and pans were nice (food did not stick to them) and they had sharp knives! The refrigerator that had an ice maker. And it made enough ice for our smaller ice chest so we did not have to stop and buy ice. The closet with beach toys, chairs, towels and ice chest was a bonus. There was always a breeze so the condo was always cool. It rained many days but we just drove to the south part of the island to find a sunny beach. This condo is perfect 2 people.

The location was within a 15 minute drive to many beaches on the north side and there is a very nice grocery store within 5 minutes.

I am so glad we chose this condo for our stay in Kauai.

Spacious + stylish condo near Hanalei Bay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked a mix of hotels and condos for our 2 week getaway around Kauai, and this condo was exactly the home away from home we needed on our trip. Pamela was very responsive and accommodating right from the start, and when we got to the condo we were delighted by the fact that the photos were an accurate representation of the vibrant space. In fact, the condo was even bigger than we imagined! We loved the fully stocked kitchen, laundry unit, wifi and cable, as well as all the beach gear we could use for the day. Furthermore, it was conveniently located near local beaches (we enjoyed Anini Beach), the famous Hanalei Bay, as well as an incredible Poke stand that is literally a hole in the wall (Sushi Girl). We highly recommend this condo and would definitely book it again! Thanks again, Pamela!

Perfect location, incredible views, quiet, everything you need to feel at home

  • 5 of 5

I am inclined to give 5 starts hands down but for the sake of playing devil's advocate I'll summarize the 98% good and the 2% bad

The good:

-perfect condo for a couple

-all cooking necessities are provided

-beach chairs, snorkels, googles, boggy boards (although most are small or broken) provided

-comfortable bed

-ample space for relaxation

-decorated great


-beautiful views of the Eastern facing mountains on the North shore

-very very close to a grocery store and restaurants and our favorite restaurant kalypso in hanalei

-incredible looking golf course although I didn't play myself

The bad:

-there were small lizards in the condo when we arrived. It seems to be an issue around most of the island. It didn't bother us until we found one in my girlfriend's makeup bag. Not a incredibly bad thing but definitely want to keep screen doors closed and front door closed.

-some basic kitchen items weren't provided such as a new sponge or dish detergent to run the dish washer. No aluminum foil or suran wrap for saving food but there is tupperware. No garbage bags were available. Once again not a huge deal at all but wanted to find something to help improve future stays

Those were honestly the only "bad" things that we found with the place. Pamela was incredibly helpful through the process and have great recommendations for things to do and places to eat and we would absolutely stay here again when we come back

Thanks again,

Josh & Reilly

Owner's Response: Aloha Josh and Reilly! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this very informative review! Especially during this busy Holiday season. My apologies that there were no sponges, garbage can bags or dishwasher soap. We most certainly make every effort to make sure our guests are provided with these items. I will be reminding the housekeeper to please check her list twice! Many are leaning toward storage containers, instead of wrapping material, so we try to encourage less paper, for the environment. Our little Gecko friends come with the island and as you probably know they do have a job, they manage the insects. I happen to love lizards but I know many do not. Finding one in your make up bag must have been a surprise. I must say, that is a first! We are so happy you had a delightful vacation! It is so nice to hear that you enjoy all the beauty that embraces you, while you are at our condo. The views - ocean, mountains & golf course, and close proximity to all the fun is why we fell in love with this condo, 15 years ago. It has been a pleasure to have you as our guests! We will look forward to your next visit!!!! We wish you the Best and Brightest Holiday Season and a most awesome 2018! - Pamela - P.S. I will be there in a few days and I will do some sorting of the toys/gear that guests leave as a courtesy. We are happy to share these little contributions.

Really is a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. It was wonderful to wake up to the ocean view from the lanai each morning, and get visits from the birds and geese. The kitchen is well outfitted, and there's plenty of equipment for going to the beach--we especially appreciated the beach chairs. There's no air conditioning, but breezes and fans keep the condo comfortable. Location is an excellent base for exploring Kauai's north and east shores, and food shopping is conveniently nearby in the Princeville Center. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!

Beautiful Sunrise!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful place to unwind, and get on an island pace.

Wake up to sunrise on the lanai, with coffee and tropical fruit. Perfect place for any couple to really enjoy Kauai. Hanalei, and the whole North shore is so peaceful, and so many beaches to check out and relax.

Would go back in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Aloha! I am so happy to hear that our condo and location was a good fit for your No Shore of Kauai experience. Hanalei is our favorite place, it's magical. The beaches on the No Shore are truly special and each one is so different. We will look forward to your next visit! Mahalo!

A Relaxing Stay After An Adventurous Day

  • 5 of 5

The Kamahana Condo was absolutely perfect for the two of us! The first thing we noticed when we walked in was the refreshing breeze blowing in from the ocean. Since we visited in June, my husband and I thought that we would have a difficult time sleeping due the heat and lack of air conditioning- that wasn't the case at all. The condo has three spacious screened in doors which create an amazing cross breeze.

The condo was extremely clean and had such an adorable Hawaiian theme. The location was PERFECT! First of all, we couldn't have picked a better town to stay in. The condo is a quick drive away from everything you need. Nothing is more than a mile away. We stayed in Hanalei and Princeville the entire trip!

Since the food can be expensive, my husband and I cooked some of our meals at home. The Kamahana condo has everything you need from pots and pans, a grill, cooking utensils and a easy to use wine opener :)

Our bed was so comfortable and the ceiling fans kept the air moving.

Thank so much for making our Honeymoon in Kauai such a memorable time. Off to Maui- Aloha!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your beautiful review! Your description of our "home away from home" was purely delightful! We so enjoy reading the highlights of our guest's experiences. We have never felt a need for AC, when you have amazing trade winds. Our new screen door addition has been the key component in reaping the full benefits of our location and those trade winds. We wish you many happy memories and good health in your lifetime together, as husband & wife! We hope you will think of us when it comes time to celebrate an Anniversary! Many thanks! Pamela
