About the Property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Comfortable luxury at an awesome price – exclusive insider’s guide to Kauai included with stay!

ALOHA: We extend a big Aloha to you, our guests and hope you enjoy our second home as if it was yours. Our condo is appointed as a home not a rental as we spend much of the year here and open it to select guests the balance of the time. We find it ever so comfortable and want you to enjoy it as much as we do so, once your book your stay, we give you our special insider’s guide to the island with local tips and tricks for making the most of your stay in Kauai.

If you are reading this you may already know what a wonderful place the North shore of Kauai is.

Our complex Nihilani lies just a short walk from Queen's bath, the Makai Golf Club, whale watching, Hideaways Beach, and the St. Regis at Princeville Resort. Princeville itself is just a short drive to the gorgeous beaches, great shopping and gourmet restaurants of Hanalei. Further around toward the end of the road lie Haena and the beaches of Lumahai, Tunnels and Ke'e.

GOLF: Between the perennial top five in the state of Hawaii and top 50 in the United States Prince Course and the more user friendly 27 holes of the Makai Golf Club there is a golf outing to suit anyones desire or daring. Both designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Jr.

TRANSPORTATION: Princeville is about 45 minutes from Lihue Airport. You'll want to rent a car as we have our own garage for parking. If not, a taxi runs about $90/$110.

KID FRIENDLY: When we visit we often come with extended family and find that our condo suits that purpose well. We have a three year old and all of my six siblings all have children so we have made the condo as kid friendly as possible. There are board games, beach toys, DVD/Blue Ray library, PaknPlay, high chair, snorkel equipment, bodyboards, beach mats, toddler and infant toys and baby gates and cabinet locks (if necessary). All of this “gear” is nicely packed away so if you don’t have kids, you would never know it’s there.

LIVING AREA and LOWER LANAI: We find our living area very comfortable with a U-shaped sofa and coffe table facing a 42' HD LCD TV. There is a Blue Ray player and good size library of movies. Giant picture windows open to the lower covered lanai where we enjoy evening outdoor drinks at the teak table that has seating for four or more. Late at night is good star watching as we face away from the rest of the complex and across the way is a large thicket of gorgeous local foliage between us and the next complex. Although we do get the benefit of hearing the calming running water sounds of their extensive entry waterfalls.

DINING AREA and KITCHEN: Leading in from the living space is an 8.5' French farmhouse table with bench seating on one side (helpful for kid seating). There are four barstools around the kitchen island for casual dining and hanging out. Across from the dining area is a buffet that is filled with kid toys, puzzles and board games. There is also a small game table next to the dining room that has checkers, chess, chinese checkers and backgammon built into it.

POOL AREA and BBQ: Nihilani has the most stunning pool area of any condo property on the Island. We love that we are just a short walk away yet just far enough so we never hear any noise from the pool area. That short walk comes in handy when you are grilling also!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: In 2001 my wife and I met while she was vacationing here from New York. A year later I moved to New York to be with her provided that we move somewhere with surfable coastline and NO WINTER before the start of the third winter. She kept her end of the bargain and then some. Now we are in Marina del Rey, CA. In 2005 we returned and had our 'surfer wedding' on the beach at Pinetrees and the reception at the restaurant we met at that I used to manage. Years later after my Mother died of Mesothelioma, the small settlement we received allowed us to fulfill our dream of owning a place on the North Shore of Kauai - the most beautiful place on earth.

Why the Owner Chose Princeville, HI, USA:
When we bought in 2009 we looked at every property available in Princeville. Nihilani was the newest and best designed property around. The unit we found was barely lived in and only a few years old. Every other place we looked at looked so lived in and worn down, but this place was perfect. The upstairs downstairs layout makes it really feel like a single family home.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Unlike other rentals, ours is furnished and decorated as a second home, not a rental unit. You will find the first class furnishings, kitchenware and decor that we enjoy on our many vacations to Princeville. Our unit is perfect for young children and comes stocked with a PaknPlay, baby gates, and a strap on high chair as well as infant and toddler toys. Rainy day? No problem, avail yourself to our extensive DVD/Blue Ray collection, board games or reading library.
