Great property with everything you would need

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Irina and Robert's condo. The location was perfect - walking distance to Hideaways Beach, Queens Bath, and the St. Regis for sunset and cocktails. It is also a 5 minute drive to the grocery store. The condo itself has everything you could possibly need - toiletries, towels, kitchen condiments, beach equipment, and books. It was extremely clean and we enjoyed many meals out on the lanai. Any question I had, Irina would respond to right away and was great at providing recommendations during the week. I would definitely come back here again. Thank you!!

Highly recommended! Can't wait to return.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Turtle House was perfect! The villa is in a quiet location, near the end of a cul-de-sac with not much traffic. It is a short walk to Hideaway's Beach and Queen's Bath. There are grocery stores and restaurants a short drive away. The villa is immaculate, nicely decorated and has all amenities/supplies we could possibly want. This is a well-loved, well-maintained private home. It is a spacious 2 story with great flow of the trade winds that kept us cool during the day and night. The owner (Irina) kept us informed about road closings, driveway paving, etc to minimize any potential inconveniences. She was readily available and always helpful. This home totally exceeded our expectations!! We highly recommend this property and will definitely stay here again!

This is an amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful time during our stay at Turtle House. The home is beautifully maintained and was very clean, spacious, and relaxing for all of us. We loved the fact that there are many close beaches and that we could walk to Hideaways Beach within 5 minutes and have a great time snorkeling and playing in the water. We were all able to see not only beautiful fish, but turtles there as well.

Anytime I had a question or needed to correspond with Irina, she quickly replied and was very helpful and friendly.

We ate many breakfasts and some lunches and dinners out on the lanai and the kitchen was perfect for making meals. This definitely helped keep the cost down a bit on our food expenses. We loved having the use of the beach equipment, especially the boogie boards and the beach chairs. Anytime we felt like getting out of the sun and relaxing indoors, we had plenty of space to spread out and truly enjoy.

If we return to Kauai, we will definitely be staying at Turtle House again. We can't say enough good things about it!

Great location, pristine condition

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting these villas in Princeville. Highly recommend for a variety of reasons, first being location. It is right in front of the entrance of the St Regis so you can use book spa services, dinner and drinks. Only traffic you get is very light. Also there is a private beach, a bit tricky to find, across the street as well as the public access by the St Regis. All walkable. The best sunset is across the street, you can't miss the people coming to see it.

The villa itself is off the road so very quiet. Also has lovely golf course views, so no one behind you. There are 2 nice size balconies, one off the master and one off the living room so plenty of outdoor space.

The villa is renovated and in excellent condition. The owner Irina is easy to get in touch with should you need anything. All the beach gear is great, you don't need to pack anything. Everything you need is there and in new condition. The kitchen is new and stocked with everything you'd need, easy to find. All newly decorated, flat screen TV, very comfortable.

The master in this unit is different from some of the other villas, it's larger, in the back with a private balcony. Other units have a split of the 2 bedrooms in the back with a shared balcony and smaller master. Much prefer the larger, more private master. The beds are very comfortable, you get a nice cross breeze so no need for AC.

We retuned this trip with a group for a birthday, so we had friends in multiple units throughout the Princeville resort. Although this unit was more expensive the general consensus was that the condo units (not free standing) have pretty thin walls so can be loud. Also can't walk to the beach from many of the others, even if they have water views. At this location, you aren't stranded unless you have a car. There are also bikes although we didn't use them. Easy to get around Princeville that way as well. None of the other units my friends stayed in were equipped as well and much smaller.

We would absolutely book this unit on our next trip for sure

Absolutely The Best Choice We Made!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful Hanalei Bay Villa property. We stayed here for 10 nights from March 27-April 5, 2017. There were four adults (my husband and myself and our grown daughter and son-in-law who live in Sydney Austalia. ). This accommodated us perfectly. When reading reviews one is never quite sure but based on prior things written we opted for this property. I must concur wholeheartedly with every reviewer about this stunning condo. It is private and is located in a beautiful setting. Every morning it would be a dream to sit on the lanai and look out to the beautiful mountains, golf course and lush gardens. A perfect location to beautiful beaches within walking distance or short drive. The beach in front of the elegant St. Regis hotel in a quick walk maybe 5-10 minutes from our doorstep to the beach. The owner provides everything you will need in this fully equipped, modern and "super clean" well organized property. The beds are comfy and everything is there for your convenience. The owners responded to every correspondance immediately. You will not feel neglected at all! It is the owners home away from home and you feel that immediately upon arrival. The decor is so cute and bright in their "turtle house". The kitchen is fully equipped as well as all conveniences for the bathroom and laundry (soap, shampoo, towels). This place is well stocked. Beautiful kitchen appliances and all the things you would need just as in your own home. There are flat screen tvs in each bedroom as well as the living room though there is not the need for us anyway to do much viewing with the scenery surrounding us. We enjoyed walking across the street every night for the most spectacular sunsets. I suggest one night going to the St. Regis patio area for a "Ginger margarita" and a stunning table view of the sunset over Hanalei bay. We loved the deli section take out of the nearby Foodland market and new restaurant "Piazza". Our favorite beaches were "Anini" and "Ke'e". This is a piece of paradise which the owners have warmly shared with us. We so appreciated this property. Our son in law and daughter brought their surfboards and surfed daily at Hanalei bay (they did not have to drive and had the best surfing days). Beach chairs and towels also provided. I highly, highly recommend this amazing property. I'm telling all my friends and family to rent this truly beautiful condo. Renting this property was the best choice we made! Paradise found!
