Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Our beautiful 2 bdrm. 2 bath condo sits on a bluff with an unobstructed view of the ocean from every room. It also offers views of the Bali Hai mountains with their beautiful waterfalls from the kitchen, dining and bathroom windows. This 2nd floor end unit in building 7 has been completely renovated with brand new wood flooring, berber carpet, bathroom tile, granite counters, cherry wood cabinets and appliances. The comfortable bedrooms are tastefully decorated and you will be lulled to sleep with the relaxing sound of the ocean below. You can sit out on the Lanai and watch the whales (Nov.-April) or spinner dolphins go by as you relax with your favorite libation.
Hanalei Bay is less than a 10 minute drive and has been rated by Travel magazine as the best beach in the world! There are also many small beaches you can visit and find yourself almost alone if privacy is what you prefer. The snorkeling on the north shore of Kauai is fantastic and you are likely to see sea turtles as they are common all over the island. You can also enjoy surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, & hiking. There are a number of great restaurants, shops and places to sample our favorite island drink the mai tai.
Kauai is called the Garden Isle and for good reason. It is a lush green tropical paradise and you owe it to yourself to experience the relaxing beauty of a vacation in paradise.

About Gena Smith
We are Bill & Gena Smith and we live in Fallbrook, California. In our 30 plus years of marriage we have always loved vacationing at the ocean. We visited Kauai for the first time in 1998 and we have been coming back ever since. It has been our long time dream to own a vacation home here and we are beyond happy that our dream has finally come true.
Gena Smith purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Gena Smith chose Princeville
The first time we visited Alii Kai we were impressed by the beautiful ocean view. As we stood on the Lanai looking out at the turquoise blue sea, we saw a whale jump out of the water! At that moment we knew that this would be our 'home away from home'.
What makes this Condo unique
Our favorite place to go and watch the sunset is Anini Beach. It is usually quiet and mostly deserted in the late afternoon and we can go snorkeling or just take a dip in the ocean and then have a glass of wine and watch the sky change colors as the sun slips behind the mountains. We have been treated to some magnificent fiery sights.

This condo sits above the cliffs with beautiful sunrise views but no beach access. With it being on the second floor, there was no need to leave the lanai to see the sunrises. The property had a homey feel and was well maintained. It had a great kitchen with all the equipment you'd need. The area was quiet and at night you could fall asleep to the sound of the waves on the beach below. The parking lot sits a little above the stair access to the building so you will need to carry/roll your bags down the ramp from the parking lot and carry them up the stairs to the condo.
While we were there, maintenance was being performed on the outside of the building but the workers were all very nice, they made sure the area was clean and accessible and they started and stopped at a time that didn't intrude on our time there. Gena, the property owner, contacted my via email on the day we left to tell me the washing machine wasn't working. Unfortunately I didn't check my email until we had been there for several days. We had packed light expecting to use the washing machine. I contacted Gena back and she sent a repairman who was unable to fix the problem. So my wife and I got to see a part of Kapaa we never expected to see, the laundromat at 10:00 PM. Gena refunded some of our fees and we got an experience to share with friends.
There is little in the immediate area for restaurants so plan ahead. Kapaa is about an hour drive away and there are several good restaurants in that area. Hanalei is about 30 minutes away and there area a few good choices there as well.
All-in-all we loved our time at this condo and when we visit again will consider staying here if it's available.
Great condo. Fantastic views. Excellent recommendations.
The location was very convenient. The condo was clean and had a good layout. We could sit on the lanai all day with the view. Gena's recommendations were spot on. Loved it.
Outstanding views and location as advertised!
We had a great time during our stay and wouldn't hesitate to choose the same property again if we return to the Princeville area. Queen's Bath, Hideaway Beach, Hanelei Bay are all within short drives or walks in most cases. There is a full service grocer within 2 miles and lots of great restaurant options as well. The condo itself is pretty simple but really has everything you would need; I cooked 5 nights of our stay (oven, grill, quality knives, cutting boards, full cookware). We took advantage of the beach gear, coolers, etc. for our trips to the Hanalei Pier beach. We chose this location and early January in hopes of some good wildlife spotting, particularly humpback whales during their migration. We were not disappointed and saw multiple whales, albatross (and other rare birds) The view is as advertised and we saw whales breaching right in front of the condo almost daily, what a treat! The only reason for withholding the fifth star is because the washer in the unit was sub par, skittish, and a pain in the rear., but overall we had a lovely time and lucked out on the weather also :) Gena, the owner, was very easy to communicate with and helpful where/when needed.

Great Northshore Condo!
Great condo, with it’s quiet location and relaxing sounds of the surf. Interior nicely furnished, just like the pictures. There are a few idiosyncrasies that take away one star, but feel this is a great value and would return.
Just as advertised, beautiful with everything you need for your stay
The view is wonderful, crashing waves, birds calling cool breezes everywhere on the property.
We stayed at the Alii Kai condo for a week. The place is very clean, well equipped, and, the most important, has an amazing views from both bedrooms and the leaving room. Thank you for your accommodation!
