Aloha and E Komo Mai (welcome)!
Our Hale Makai ('Ocean house') is a spectacular home at a great value. A rare corner unit with gorgeous 180 degree ocean views from all rooms and the wrap-around lanai, we invite you to come here, relax and enjoy the aloha that our vacation home provides (and that Kauai is world-famous for!). Please watch the short VIDEO of our place (by the photo window) - you will LOVE our condo!!!
Our condo sits on the edge of a bluff overlooking the Pacific ocean and both bedrooms and the living room boast breathtaking ocean views. Wake up to an ocean view from your bed, fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean, have your morning coffee on the lanai and soak up the unspoiled ocean view. In season, watch the whales frolic and the albatross soar by without ever leaving. Also, our condo faces north so from the lanai you can also catch the colorful kaleidoscope of sunrise skies to the east and sunset skies to the west. Our condo is your front row seat to all of the above!
Our condo is a two-bedroom, two-bath unit that sleeps five comfortably and is furnished with tropical, island-style decor. The master has a cal-king bed and the second bedroom has a queen bed, both with very comfortable plush-top mattresses and 700+-thread count linens. There is also a full-size air bed (which inflate and deflates in minutes). The master bedroom also has 35" smart TV - so you can use your Hulu/Amazon Prime/NetFlix account to stream your favorite movies.
The floor plan is open and airy, and the condo flows from a well-appointed kitchen and island/bar to a separate dining area and comfortably furnished living area. For your entertainment, there is a 37-inch flat panel Smart TV (Roku/Netflix/Hulu/etc.) and a Sony iPod/CD stereo system in the living room. There are ceiling fans throughout, as well as ample windows in our corner condo to catch the crisp, tropical breeze. We also provide snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs, and other beach gear to suit all you needs.
The Ali'i Kai complex
Ali'i Kai is a small, quiet complex of 56 units spread over seven buildings. Lushly landscaped with palm trees, birds of paradise, hibiscus, and plumeria trees, the grounds are gorgeous. Ali'i Kai features a resort-style pool, as well as tennis court privileges at the Makai Tennis Club. There are charcoal BBQs in several locations nearby. The inviting walk/jog path that runs through Princeville - with breathtaking views of the mountains on one side and the ocean on the other - is only a half-mile away.
If you have questions, please call or email. Also, because I know that a trip to Hawaii is a major expense and for many it's the trip of a lifetime, I take seriously my responsibility to make your stay a memorable one. I will do everything I can to make you happy!
And if you need another condo or this one is booked for your dates, we also own VRBO listing# 316531.
I am Texas-born and bred Hawaii lover. I lived on Kauai for a time and it was the experience of a lifetime! Now I get my Kauai fix by visiting several times a year and enjoying our oceanfront piece of paradise.
John Anderson purchased this condo in 2012
We bought here for three reasons: ocean view, ocean view, ocean view :).
Our condo is perfect for relaxing and allowing the stresses of the mainland to melt away. We wake up to the sounds and sights of the early morning sunrise over the ocean and spend the evenings relaxing on the lanai, entranced by the glorious beauty of Kauai. What could be better?
Very nice condo on right on the ocean. Had a great time!
My mother, boyfriend and I recently spent 9 nights at John's place in Princeville. We had a wonderful time and found the condo to be clean, spacious and well equipped to handle our group of 3. It was great to have plenty of bath and beach towels, beach chairs, sunscreen and bug spray on hand as well as some unexpected extras like snorkels and a blender to make frozen drinks! The small washer and dryer in the unit made packing for a 10 day trip much more manageable, too.
We spent a lot of time exploring Kauai but also did a good amount of hanging out, cooking, and relaxing at the condo, so the location was perfect for us. It is a beautiful and easy 10 min drive into Hanalei for surfing, restaurants, beaches, and points west and about half an hour to window shopping, great coffee, and the wonderful bike and walking path in Kapaa. It was about 45 mins. drive to/from the airport and an hour and change to our favorite swimming beach in Poipu. There is plenty around Princeville, including many quiet beaches, hiking, snorkeling, restaurants, and groceries, so it would be possible to have a relaxing stay without much driving if that had been our preference.
The condo's location at the edge of the cliffs was unbeatable. It was calming and spectacular to fall asleep and wake up to the sights and sounds of the waves below each day. We also enjoyed sitting out in the complex's shared adirondack chairs and looking at the stars.
I have to add that for any telecommuters like myself who might have to check email or work while in Hawaii, the wifi internet at John's place was lightning fast and very reliable. That was a must have for me when choosing a place to rent, and I was very happy with the results.
We would definitely stay here again and are already talking about our return trip.
Great condo perched atop a cliff with a phenomenal 180 degree view of the ocean. The area is serene and beautifully landscaped. Very easy access in and out which was perfect for us and our day excursions. Spent mornings and evenings on the lanai soaking up the gorgeous ocean view. My wife and I enjoyed the trip of a lifetime here and would love to return some day.
Our family of 4 recently stayed here and had a wonderful time. The first thing we noticed upon arrival were the amazing views, pictures don't do it justice! The condo was very clean upon arrival. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the ocean every minute while in the condo, especially in the morning while sipping coffee. The main room and kitchen were much more spacious than anticipated, which was a nice bonus. The kitchen is very well equipped, we cooked a few meals in and found everything we needed easily. The beds were very comfortable and because of the location, cool breezes came in through the windows which kept us very comfortable. There are ceiling fans in the bedrooms but we rarely used them. We also appreciated the umbrellas and chairs for days we were at the beach, helped make our trips to the beach extra comfortable. Our family loves to travel and have rented condos at home and abroad, this condo is at the top of our list for thoughtful "extras". Board games in the closet, beach towels, binoculars to look out over the ocean, even a crock pot! We were very comfortable here and would not hesitate to return.
This is a wonderful condo which sits directly above the ocean. It is close to many of the nicest beaches in Kauai, and also within 30 minutes of several great hikes. We cook at home most nights, and the kitchen is well equipped. The place is also very quiet - we stayed 5 nights, and rarely saw or heard our neighbors. One final note: we toured the historic Kilauea lighthouse, which is only 15 minutes south of the condo. The history and restored lighthouse are extremely interesting, and the location is incredibly beautiful. My wife said it was the best birdwatching of our 2 week visit to Hawaii.
A great place to stay. The view is amazing, and to be able to go to sleep every night to the sounds and breezes of the ocean was cause for one of the most relaxing vacations of my life. The location is quiet, but with great access to everywhere. For food supplies, the market is only a couple minutes away, with a great selection. We plan to make this trip every year from now on, and we hope that we can be John's guest everytime. Totally outstanding, I wish I could live there!
