Check out Princeville Ranch Adventures; ask for Troy to be your guide! Kauai is a vacation paradise.

We named our home Albatross ocean bluff because the albatross use the back lawn for take-off and landing. You can simply sit and watch the birds soar effortlessly along the bluff for hours while listening to the ocean waves. The birds migrate to our Princeville neighborhood in the fall, and the hatchlings fledge in July. Princeville is the only location in the world where the albatross coexist with people. They provide entertainment and are quite an attraction for visitors.

Spacious and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We (5 adults and 2 kids ages 9 and 11) had a wonderful time at the Albatross Ocean Bluff property. The home was clean, very spacious and a 5 to 10 minute hike to a fantastic beach. We also loved that it was a 5 minute drive to the grocery store. We have stayed in many rental properties and this one had by far the most well-stocked kitchen. The neighborhood is lovely and the baby albatross in the front yard was very fun to watch. I definitely recommend this property.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We took our 5 adult sons & 3 girlfriends for a very wonderful week. it went way too fast. The house was perfect and everybody had their own space. The location in Priceville was perfect, we all enjoyed the local beach, helicopter ride, and luau. One of our sons is a Chef and made a wonderful gourmet dinner one night in the huge kitchen. Perfect House for a perfect vacation. Steve D.

Paradise. Amazing views of the water, mountains and we even saw a baby albotross.

  • 5 of 5

The water views are much better than the pictures. While we spent most of the week out of the house, it was a great and relaxing place for the family to come back to every night. We had 9 people ranging in age from older to 4 months old. The house had plenty of room, and the breeze made up for any lack of AC. We cooked at the house every night. The propane grill was a little tired, but everything else seemed nice. The house was clean and well stocked with chairs and even some snorkeling equipment. Na Pali coast and Hannalei are close. The location was really an ideal launching spot.

If you are the kind of person who happens to like paradise and perfection, this place should be ideal.

Fantastic View of the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect location in Princeville. Nice, quiet neighborhood, close to everything you need. BBQ on the back deck almost every night with breezes cooling and views to die for. Two families of 5 each fit well. New jacuzzi was really nice also. Kristen manages the house here on the island and was prompt on our requests. Can't wait to return. 2nd time staying here. Will be back.
