About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 - could sleep 5th young child)


WELCOME to KauaiViewCondo! We provide outstanding amenities, the best quality luxurious sleeping experience, surrounded by beautiful things/furniture and it is extremely clean & lovingly cared for.... AND OF COURSE THE OCEANFRONT UNOBSTRUCTED VIEW - there isnt a better view available - it is unobstructed, stunning, panoramic & 100% oceanfront.

Highlights include:

KauaiViewCondo's MASTER SUITE features a king sized bed, with 100% cotton linens, Martha Stewart quilt, oodles of comfy pillows. A gorgeous chase lounge sits in the corner beside a large picture window. There is a new flat screen TV, a ceiling fan above and custom-made drapes and teak furniture to finish it off. It is a dreamy master with an amazing view of the sunrise daily. The master bathroom provides a large, walk-in dual-headed double shower that features a unique tile mural of the waterfalls and mountains of Kauai. We include lots of quality towels.

The GUEST BEDROOM mirrors the master. It includes a queen size bed with Martha Stewart linens, quilt and tons of pillows. It also has exactly the same large picture window & outstanding view that the master boasts. A ceiling fan above and some gorgeous artwork I obtained from an old Hawaiian hotel finish it off. It also features custom-made drapes and freshly painted walls. The second bathroom includes both a shower and a bathtub.

The OPEN PLAN LIVING AREA is the highlight of KauaiViewCondo!! It is one of only a few of the condos in the Alli Kai complex that has 2 large picture windows/sliding doors in the main area (this is because we are an 'end' unit), so you get the view directly out front to the ocean and to the side of the bluff and ocean. We have comfy recliners and a couch with a ceiling fan above and a silk area rug underneath. The teak book cabinet contains tons of great books and a basket is filled with a variety of local guide books and binoculars. I also have an extremely large selection of movies, including a number that were filmed in Kauai, kinda fun to watch them and say 'i know that beach!!'.

THE KITCHEN provides every utensil you'll need to cook. We also have exceptional knives (that is one thing we hated when we stayed in condos before - I love the local fruit here and want to easily chop it up!) The high-end professional juicer is fabulous for all the fruit too! I have all the same kitchen gadgets you'd expect to find at home. Due to health regulations though, we dont provide any food items.

Three completely stocked FUN CLOSETS (two inside and one outside). This is very important as it will save you time and money during your visit. We stock our FUN closets with Tommy Bahamas beach chairs and umbrellas, snorkels, fins and masks for 4+, coolers (small and large), boogie boards, backpacks, beach mats and a variety of other beach toys. We also have yard toys such as paddleball, ladderball, bocce, tennis racquets for the nearby courts, pool noodles for the pool -- Im always on the look-out and drag over oodles of stuff every trip from the mainland. In addition, we have fun stuff for inside as well - a large selection of board games: Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuits, cards, crib board etc.

We believe it is the extras and the small things that make us stand out above the others. We want you to feel pampered, but also feel comfortable, as if you are visiting our home:

- free long distance calling (so you can call home whenever you want)

- free wifi

- every tv channel you'd ever desire

- tons of fun gear and i mean TONS of FUN GEAR!

- a lovingly created Guest Welcome Book with lots of practical and helpful info and suggestions of favourite things & places

- the best linens & pillows (bedding is VERY important to us)- a gel mattress pad too

- lots of fluffy towels

- completely outfitted kitchen with tons of extras

- it is exceptionally clean, super organized & freshly painted

- iPod dock

- selection of movies shot in Kauai (with Movie book) and tons of other movies too

- very, very large library of GREAT books & baskets of Guide books

- MuMus & Hawaiian shirts - so you can dress in style if you go to a Luau!

About Kim Sanderson

Paul & Kim have been married 30 years and are the proud parents of Ashley & Cole (our adult children) & Sammi and Four (our adorable dogs) and our lovely daugher-in-law Caitie. Paul retired recently and I work in public relations, event planning and communications. I am self employed.

Kim Sanderson purchased this condo in 2011

Why Kim Sanderson chose Princeville

Paul came to Kauai when he was 18 and lived in a cave on NaPail coast - he loved it and has fond memories of this island. We've come back a few times and then last year we decided to purchase a condo. We have loved being vacation rental hosts! This year we bought our dream oceanfront condo in the same Alii Kai complex. Our first condo has been solidly booked and is such a pleasure to manage. We believe its because we give great value (we are lower priced than most here) and we are exceptionally beautifully decorated and full of extras. I love meeting our guests via email mostly and providing them with a great holiday experience. We also visit here at least twice year as I can work remotely!

What makes this condo unique

There are so many unique features of our property and the area!! I have created a Welcome Book for guests when they arrive, it highlights many different ideas of things we love here.

The things i love the most are:

- the view - it is unmatched. The way we are situated on the bluff (and being a corner unit) its very private and takes full advantage of the ocean. Alii Kai I complex the bldgs are curved, so you cant see the people beside you when you sit on your lanai and they cant view us, so its very private.

- the whales, they pass right out front. some days we see 30 whales, jumping out of water and splashing away (which i later learned was mating)- the binoculars help to get detail, but they are so close its unbelievable and easily seen by the naked eye

- the turtles - often you can see them below swimming in the reef while standing on the bluff in front of our unit

- the sunsets - take a coffee or wine or picnic and sit on the lanai and you have the best seat to watch the sun going down .... all the shades of pink you can imagine

- the sunrise, you get a perfect vantage point from your master bed every morning

- the breeze - there is a beautiful breeze that comes into the condo at all times, add that to the 24/7 soundtrack of waves and its heavenly

- i love the town of Hanalei, i love the beaches that are 5 mins from here, i love the mililons of shades of green, the smell after the rain, the dramatic flowers, the many birds, the nene visiting our lanai in the morning (dont feed them!!), i love that the North Shore has remained almost unchanged for many many years.

Our Welcome Book highlights my favourites.

In my business, it is the little things that sets consultants apart. It is especially my attention to detail that I pride myself on. I make every attempt to transfer these skills to to the management of our condo and your guest experience here :)

We have stayed at a number of units in this complex for over 6 years and this is our least favorite. The furnishings were extremely worn, stained and frayed carpet, recliners that didn't work properly, sagging mattresses and worn out pillows, etc. The closets were packed with the owners things which left little room for our stuff. The garbage disposal/sink clogged up. DVD player did not work. Although the unit was equipped with beach chairs and water sports equipment most of it was rusty and worn out. Bottom line, the location was ideal, but when compared to other units in the complex I would rate this on par with Motel 6 compared to others that were more like a Ritz Carlton (for not that much more $).

Owner's Response: I’m so sorry to hear you were so disappointed in our condo. After 90 reviews on VRBO (with 87 – being 5 star***** and only three – 4 star**** and mainly 5-star***** on the other booking site as well) – this review was quite the shock - but not a compete surprise based on our experience hosting you. Bottom line, I’ll try to do better – I try extremely hard to provide a beautiful retreat and to be a good host -- Im very sorry you felt differently.

Amazing View! Very Relaxing Stay on Kaua‘i.

  • 5 of 5

Kim’s condo was exactly what we were looking for on our honeymoon. The setting was absolutely beautiful. We loved hearing the waves crash, watching sunrises & sunsets from our patio and being in a perfect location to explore the north shore.

Heavenly Land

  • 4 of 5

We have had a lovely time here in Alii Kai in Princeville. We explored as much as we could of this beautiful island in the short time we were here. It was great to come back to such a lovely place each day and enjoy the serenity. The mornings didn't disappoint with some great sunrisers, thank you for letting us share a part of your paradise.

Owner's Response: Was an honour to host your Australian family! The only place on earth we think is as beautiful as our corner of Kauai is found in Australia's northern coast.

Kim's place is amazing. The view from the lanai is something to look forward to every night and the bed is seriously comfy. Location is secluded, quiet, and generally free from much noise so it really amps up the vibe. Place is stocked with everything you need and some! If you're looking for a place in Princeville - this is the one. Kim is also a fabulous host with amazing communication. Can't say enough nice things! A perfect vacation.

Beautiful, clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend with family for a wedding in Hanalei. The condo is clean, well kept, furnished with everything one might need for their stay (general appliances, items for beach activities, etc). We had 4 adults and 1 baby and had plenty of space. The view is BEAUTIFUL and there are comfy chairs out back where you can sit and take it all in. Plenty of friendly birds, geckos and even a little cat came and visited us at our back door. Definitely recommend!

A home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We are so blessed to have gotten to spend a week in this condo. Kim went above and beyond giving us info to enrich our stay. The condo had everything we needed to entertain our daughter and have the best vacation ever. One favorite is an extensive guest book. Previous guests have lefts pages over the years detailing their trips and what they enjoyed doing and not doing. We used that book as much as any guidebook.

Can't wait to come back! Thank you Kim and Paul!

Owner's Response: We love hosting ALL guests. But it does give me SPECIAL pleasure to host families, as when our children were young, so often we found it hard to find places that openly embraced them. Now, that our children are all grown It is those trips we took when they were young, that I cherish about anything. We look forward to being your place to return to!
