Our family has been coming to Kauai for the past 18 years. In 2011, we decided that Kauai was our special place on earth that we always wanted in our lives. This started a search for a home away from home. One that we wanted to stay in, some place so nice we would rather stay there than a hotel, a place we could all be 'ohana' family and have plenty of room for friends. Our house on Emmalani means that to us and we hope it will mean that to you and your family too. With Aloha Spirit, Linda and Ben
Ben & Linda Bunn purchased this house in 2012
This house has a special feeling-- very open and relaxing- a place you can really disconnect. It is also on a big lot with privacy loaded with fruit trees and tropical plants. Probably love the singing birds in the morning as much as anything. If you like the feeling of the soft warm air as you wake up then you will love this house as much as we do!
We had such a great time at this house! Close to everything we wanted to do on Kauai- in Princeville, but felt secluded with the trees closing around us. What a view from the Lanai!!! House was perfectly equipped for our group- we ate in a lot and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Beds are comfy, showers are nice, and the kitchen had everything we needed. We would come again for sure.
We stayed at this beautiful home over spring break 2017. We vacationed with our family of 4 (17 and 22 yo children) and my brothers family (12, 15, and 18 yo kids). We had plenty of room and did not feel on top of each other at all. The kitchen is very well appointed, complete with high end appliances. All the beds were very comfortable. There Are tons of towels, including beach towels. The washer and dryer were a great addition. We used those plenty. There are boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach bikes etc. we had an amazing time. The Bunn family has thought of everything. The neighborhood is so pretty. Not close to the beach but that didn't matter. Your ten minutes from Hanalei bay. Thank you so much. We had the trip of a lifetime.
great price for the location. lots of room for everybody, all the beach toys from boogie boards to flippers. and quiet.
we recommend it to families highly.
There were five of us on this trip. Ben & Linda's house was perfect for our two families.
Ben is quick to respond to inquiries and his local property management team is great, helpful and responsive.
The four bedrooms/three bathrooms were more than ample for our group, since this house can sleep 9! The luxurious shower upstairs was amazing and the beds comfortable.
The kitchen/dining area is spacious and has a gas cook-top to boot! We typically would cook breakfast and dinner at the house, and enjoyed eating at the dining table or out on the large covered lanai, listening to birds, breezes and enjoying the view of the mountains and lush tropical vegetation. The grill on the lanai could get to high heat quickly, which was great for grilling steaks, chicken and veggies. The kitchen had salt and a little olive oil, so pick up some spices, oil, etc. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, glassware, tumblers, flatware, mixing/salad bowls, pots/pans, kitchen knives, cutting boards, decorative bowls/trays, etc. There was plastic wrap and ziplock bags too. The ice-maker works well and kept us stocked up for iced tea, etc. The fridge is large, as is the pantry next to it. We stopped at Costco on the way to the property to pick up meat, veg, eggs, snacks, drinks, etc. and there was ample room for storing everything.
The property has multiple fruit trees, many of which were ripe! There is nothing like fresh starfruit, orange, and avocado. There were a few chickens (many different colors) wandering around the property that were fun to watch. Occasionally, even a rooster would stop by.
The house is close to the Princeville shopping center, and only a 15 minute walk, which takes you past many other lovely yards/gardens. There is a Foodland in the complex that makes excellent ahi poke (many kinds). We picked up some every few days. In the nearby Community Center, they hold arts/crafts festivals, which were fun to visit and see handmade items. Hanalei is only a 5-10 minute drive and has lots of shops and excellent restaurants, plus beautiful beaches, where you can go for long walks, play in the water, or sit and contemplate your navel :-) Kilauea Lighthouse was a 5-10 minute drive and we were able to drive down to the lighthouse parking lot. We saw myriad birds and even a few whale breaches! We drove over to old Koloa town, Hanapepe and Waimea Canyon and the lookout points/hike. Beautiful!
We highly recommend this property.
This house is in a great quiet, family neighbourhood in Princeville. It is short walk to a small shopping area with supermarket and a few restaurants. The house is nicely appointed and has a fairly large private yard with orange, star fruit and avocado trees. Like most places in Hawaii, wild chickens roam free here - free entertainment.
Our group was a party of four adults, but there are sufficient beds for 9, if there is a mix of children and adults.
The house is well equipped with ceiling fans. At the time of year we were there, we didn't use any a/c. In the garage, there was a great selection of fins, snorkels, masks, water shoes (useful in the area), noodles and boogie boards. One shortcoming of the kitchen is that the only condiments were salt and pepper, so if you are planning to cook there, you have to stock up on them. A car is highly recommended since it is a good drive from the airport (approx 45-60 min) and most attractions require a drive to get to them.
One can walk to the Queen's Bath and in the opposite direction Wiley's beach behind the Westin Resort. Be aware both walks involve steep paths to the water's edge. Wiley's beach and Anini beach beside it are well protected from the winter surf by a reef and there is good snorkelling there, as well as the water being safe for children. The Queen's Bath is a summer activity. The surf was pounding it when we went to see it in January and you couldn't safely get near it.
We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again if in the area.
Anyone who stays here will ABSOLUTELY love it!!!!!! I had a group of 8 adults since I am an outdoor adventure guide. This location is amazing and the house is so beautiful and accommodating! I will for sure bring several groups back here to Hawaii and hope to stay in this home every time I come!!! It's the BEST! You will not be sorry.
Princeville is an amazing location--close to everything including world class beaches. Close to casual and fine dining. World class golf just down the street. Great place to surf, board, play in water--very safe for kids. House is great place to hang out and relax!
