Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Spectacular, awesome, and stunning are just some of the comments made by guests to describe the view from this totally private corner unit. D3 at Sealodge is located in the building closest to the corner edge of the bluff so you get both ocean and inlet views. With no buildings in site, it feels like you are on the edge of the bluff all by yourself. Enjoy panoramic views of whitewater waves, Kileauea lighthouse, Anini Beach and Humpback whales on their winter migration. Especially popular with honeymooners, this prime first floor end unit has 180 degree views from all windows (living, dining, lanai and bedroom). At night get lulled to sleep by the crashing waves below and in the morning enjoy spectacular sunrises and the Layton Albatross as they glide along the thermal winds from the bluff. The balmy tradewinds and the smell of plumeria and blooming flowers is the beginning of beautiful memories in paradise.

The condo is situated so that you view wonderful sunrises from all the windows. This also means that the sun passes overhead by noon so you don't have any afternoon sun coming in and heating up any of the rooms. The lanai is also sheltered just enough so you get just a gentle breeze as you sit outside and take in the magic of the scenery around you.

Recent $30,000 remodel. Upgrade includes all kitchen cupboards, counter and appliances including new full-sized washer and dryer. A new 42 inch LCD flat screen TV with a HD cable in the living room provides an amazing picture plus the DVR allows you to record shows and movies to watch later. New tile in entry, kitchen and bath, all window coverings, modern couch and loveseat with large accent rug and new chairs in the alcove. Also, king Beautyrest pillow top mattress, lanai furniture, 27' LCD for the bedroom, coffee table, dining chairs, pots & pans, all bedding & pillows, glasses, towels, etc. Time Warner wireless high speed internet plus digital phone for free local and long distance calls. Kitchen also includes blender, mixer, electric juicer, mini food processor, tea kettle plus spices, various sugars, coffee filters, various oils and salt & pepper. Also provided is paper towels, laundry soap, bar soap and shampoo. For indoor activities there are books, games, DVD, VCR, CD player and binoculars for Humpback whales passing by or turtles swimming near the reef. For outdoor activities, there are beach chairs, towels, mats, cooler, beach umbrella and various snorkeling gear.

Enjoy the upscale resort area of Princeville with its two Championship golf courses, miles of foot paths, restaurants and shopping including a large Foodland. Sealodge has a prime location at the end of Kamehameha road with plenty of free parking. Eat at numerous nearby restaurants or fix a meal in the fully equipped kitchen in your condo. Sealodge promises pure relaxation and comfort.

Kauai's dramatic North Shore is an enchanting setting full of rugged mountains, heavenly beaches and spectacular sea cliffs. You'll be amazed at how much beauty can be found in just one area of Kauai. A number of spectacular beaches are nearby including Hideaways, Anini, Hanalei Bay, Ke'e, Secret Beach and Tunnels where the snorkeling is amazing.

For adventure take a helicopter ride from the Princeville airport and see where many movies have been shot including Jurassic Park and Pirates of the Caribbean. At Princeville Ranch take a horseback ride to beautiful waterfalls. Other North Shore activities include kayaking, ziplining, hiking and you can also learn about native plants and see scenic views at Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens or at the 17-acre Lumahuli Gardens, part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden.

Enjoy the many fine restaurants right in Princeville or venture into Hanalei to find many more exceptional places to dine. Simply unwinding and relaxing in this lush tropical paradise are the best qualities of Kauai. The guest book in the condo has many more suggestions of things to do, places to dine and activities that our guests enjoyed but every entry starts with 'What a view'! Your dream vacation awaits with memories you'll treasure forever.

About Linda Dunham

The condo is owned by myself, Linda Dunham, my sister Judy, my brother Ron and his wife Doreen. We originally bought the property as an investment, but we all love Hawaii and that amazing view so it will most likely stay in the family for a long time. Ron and Doreen's son Dan was married in Maui this past May but honeymooned in Princeville. It was their first stay in the condo and they immediately called to say 'please don't ever sell it, we love it!' I feel the same way as do the guests that stay there.

Linda Dunham purchased this condo in 2000

Why Linda Dunham chose Princeville

My sister and I went shopping for condos in 2000. In Maui we saw partial ocean views, the Big Island had some units closer to the ocean but all kind of run together off of one highway. We hit Poipu for the afternoon sun which was blazing in and heating up most of the condos also making it hard to even watch the sunset. We arrived at Sealodge and once we sat in the condo and she opened all the blinds we both went 'wow' and since luckily we were the first to view it, we said do not put the lockbox on, we want it. Some people who have stayed there have even asked us to let them know if we ever want to sell it, but I think not. The North Shore has such beautiful beaches, wonderful restaurants and a small town charm. Kauai being the 'garden isle' is so lush and tropical that it truly is paradise. In the condo, the tradewinds blowing and the sound of the waves below is so relaxing and peaceful you almost don't want to venture out.

What makes this condo unique

Sealodge D3 is located on the ground floor in the building located closest to the bluff and the ocean so it is like you are all by yourselves. The lanai faces only inlet and ocean. The Hawaiian geese like to stroll by in the morning and several other species of birds are flying around or on the bluff. The tradewinds are almost always blowing and the sunrises are spectacular. In the condo the back wall is all mirror so anywhere you look you see the ocean. Nobody has ever stayed there without saying 'what a view!'.

The Views are Everything!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth time staying at D3 condo. We have been to just about every other part of the island and in our opinion, there is not a better view. You have a front row seat to beautiful sunrises from the patio/alcove/bedroom. Through the day, watch the whales/dolphins in the ocean and then finish the day by enjoying the sunsets around the corner of the unit. The condo is clean, comfortable and well appointed. Already planning another return trip to Kauai/Sea Lodge D3.

View Fantastic Condo Major Update

  • 3 of 5

If it's the "view" you are looking for then this is the place for you. It's got a million dollar view! On the other hand if you appreciate a well furnished up dated condo don't go here. The furniture is very old (15 plus years). It needs a complete remodeling. Linda was great to work with but she needs to give this condo some major attention.

Owner's Response: I think this review is a little harsh. The condo is constantly being upgraded. Within the past 10 years we put in all new kitchen cupboards and countertops. New tile in the entry, kitchen, dining room and bathroom. New bathroom cupboards and faucet New Samsung TV mounted on the wall in the living room and bedroom. Alcove chairs, dining chairs, coffee tables are maybe 5 years old. Couch and loveseat are maybe hitting 10 years and should maybe replace but are not terribly worn. We replace towels, sheets, pillows every 6 mos to 1 year. We do try to keep improving it.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Great condo ON THE CLIFF in Princeville. Convienant location and great set up for in house cooking/dining. Condo has a nearby private beach but just down the road you can swim at the St Regis hotel beach and stare at views of the Bali Hai. (Valet there is free). Close to the rainforest and north shore sites. We stayed in December and the two days the weather was windy/rainy we just drove down to the sunny south shore to hike around and swim and snorkel at Poipu beach. Def worth doing for $90 is renting a double kyak and kyaking down the Wailua River to an easy hike in a rainforest to Secret Falls where you can swim in the pool underneath :)

Can't get any better!

  • 5 of 5

I could not be happier about my choice to stay here. The view from the bedroom window is worth it alone. We left the curtains open and woke up to a sunrise every morning. It's a ground level, so if the potential of someone walking by bothers you, it might not be for you. But you're in Hawaii, they'll never see you again anyway, so just enjoy your surroundings!

We enjoyed eating (and drinking) at kalypso. Would recommend the tasty chicken wings. Kona beers are amazing.

Thank you Linda for a very wonderful stay!

If you like a great ocean view, you'll like this.

  • 5 of 5

The view is mesmerizing. As described, the condo is an end unit and fronts on the bluff, so you don't see other buildings, just ocean and island. Pictures in the listing are accurate. Unit very clean, comfortable. Location is good, close to Princeville mall with grocery store, restaurants, etc. Short drive to Hanalei, also to 'Anini beach, which is well-protected by a reef and easier to access than Sealodge beach. We had trouble right at the start of the beach trail at Sealodge -- very slippery -- and did not try to continue. Probably better in drier summer months. The condo appeared to be well supplied -- lots of kitchen gear, beach equipment, etc. Perfect for two people, no more. The owner was very responsive and hospitable. Highly recommended.
