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 North Shore

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!'.

Relaxing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This compact one bedroom condo is comfortable and attractive. But the best thing is the location and the view. We could spend hours on the lanai (or in the living room as well) watching the shore line overlooking Anini Beach and the lighthouse. At low tide we watched the squid fishermen. It is only minutes from activities but feels apart from them. It is on the ground floor so sometimes other tenants will wander by seeking the view we have everywhere in the unit. We watched the morning sunrise and walked 20 feet on the lawn to watch the sunset. If there is a better unit on Kauai for the money I challenge you to find it.

Comfortable, like home lodging with an unparalleled view!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon stay at Sealodge D3! The welcome letter has everything you need to know about the property and surrounding areas. The property has everything you need in order to feel at home and the view is amazing! We loved spending our mornings sitting on the front patio area, sipping on some coffee and taking in the ocean view and breeze. Just around the corner you have an awesome view of the sunset as well. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect spot for a Kauai vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the ideal location for a vacation on Kauai. Great for north shore beaches, and access to the small beach is a few short steps and a somewhat step trail to the beach. Not as difficult as some have made out. Also Queen's Bath parking is less than 5 minutes away. Also a moderate hike down only to be avoided just after a rain.

On to the condo. If you never left the property you would still have a wonderful time. Morning sunrise from the sitting room or on the patio is the perfect way to start a day, followed by visits by nenes on most mornings. The trade winds are almost constant so you never feel hot even sitting in the sun and the corner location makes nights perfect with the windows open! We were concerned about lack of air conditioning, but found that we had the best night's sleep with the wind and the sound of the ocean!

Linda has everything you might need for your vacation right there!

We will definitely be back for our next visit!

Sealodge D-3 - Great Views

  • 4 of 5

This condo is quite comfortable and the views are great. It has everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Unfortunately, the access to the beach is virtually inaccessible. While the sea breezes kept us cool enough most of the time, there isn't a/c for the times the breezes were still.

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here on our 35 anniversary, we absolutely loved it. Let me add to this by saying we lived in Oahu for 6 years so it is not just the "Hawaii first timer talk". We purposely picked a place away from the crowds and the hustle and bustle; this was the perfect place for that. If you want night life and crowds, this is not your place!

Seriously, 10 steps out the lani door set down the beach chair and "as my wife says, Chilax". We saw whales in the morning, whales in the evening, chickens, albatross's, you name it. The foodland in Princeville has the cheapest prices that we found anywhere on the island. It is a bit of a drive to get to the South side but for the views and the quiet....... D3 is worth it! If you are into helicopter tours, there is a very good tour company at the Princeville airport (about a 10 minute drive).

Ok, more about the condo. All the appliances worked. It was well stocked with pots and pans (unless your gonna do a 7 course meal). Has beach chairs, a cooler, ice pack (for cooler), snorkel gear, etc. Linda was very active, emailing to make sure we made it and had no troubles and then to make sure we were having a good time and to see if we needed anything.

We highly recommend this place and will stay there again someday!
