About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms (Sleeps 5 with availabe folding guest bed)

This immaculate luxury condo, perched on an emerald bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, offers spectacular views of the surf and famous Bali Hai mountains.
On Kauai's North Shore, near Hanalei Bay, this 1900-square-foot, ground-floor unit is found in the Puu Poa Condominiums property that sits adjacent to the five-star St. Regis Princeville Resort Hotel.
Watch sunsets, whales, dolphins, tropical birds, sailboats and surfers from the private, covered lanai that opens directly onto the lawn overlooking the ocean. Relax, grill and eat on the lanai in any weather. Take the extra light lounge chairs out on the lawn and stretch out for sunbathing or relaxing after dark as you watch the stars and listen to the surf. Just a short walk away, across the lush grass, you'll find the heated pool and tennis courts.
Directly below the Puu Poa Condominiums sits the secluded Hideaways Beach. A favorite of many visitors to the island, Hideaways is one of the top-rated snorkeling spots on Kauai.
Enjoy all of this and all the beauty, fun and serenity Hawaii's Garden Island has to offer with Puu Poa #111 as your luxurious, comfortable, vacation home base.
The condo features an Italian-designed, gourmet, eat-in kitchen overlooking a large, open living room and dining area, all offering expansive views of the ocean and mountains. You'll find European furniture, plantation shutters and tiled floors throughout. Designed with attention to promoting a comfortable, bright, airy living space that fully takes advantage of the delightful ocean breezes.
Watch the sun rise and set over the ocean from the living room area, or turn on the 55-inch television and pop in a DVD.
On the covered lanai, use the grill and side burner to grill and cook your meals. Enjoy the contemporary outdoor furniture: dining table and chairs and Italian lightweight lounge chairs.
The kitchen is outfitted with a Subzero refrigerator, wine/beverage cooler, washer/dryer, glass counter-top range, oven and all the pots, pans and utensils needed to prepare any gourmet feast.
The master bedroom has a king-size bed, night stands, bookshelves, a computer desk and illuminated closet. The guest bedroom features a queen-size bed, closet, a chest of drawers and a flat-screen TV. There are ceiling fans with lights in each of the bedrooms and in the kitchen dining area and living room.
Enjoy shopping and dining in idyllic Hanalei where you'll find a farmers market, fish market and natural food store. Visit the world-renowned St. Regis Princeville Hotel and Puu Poa Beach. Explore Lumahai and Hanalei beaches; discover the famous backdrops for dozens of Hollywood films including 'South Pacific' and 'Jurassic Park.' Most recently, George Clooney and the cast of 'The Descendants' were filmed at the St. Regis Hotel.
At the end of Highway 560, a scenic drive along the Coast, you'll find opportunities for hiking, swimming and dining.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: We have enjoyed several months per year in our Puu Poa home since having completely remodeled it in 1996-1997. We are retired from working in our own R&D company, from employment in a large US company and from being on the faculty of a major university. Coming originally from Germany, the European influence on the design of the interior of the property is apparent. Other design goals were achieving a light and airy internal environment. Direct and hot sunlight is avoided which, combined with louvered windows for 24-hour cross ventilation, keeps the interior comfortably cool. The covered lanai with contemporary patio furniture and cooking/grilling facilities offers outdoor living at its finest.

Why the Owner Chose Princeville, HI, USA:
We chose Puu Poa for several reasons besides the obvious ones, namely climate and lifestyle. The condominium's structure is solid concrete (not primarily wood) and, thus, hurricane resistant. Our unit is on the ground floor 140 ft. above sea level (therefore tsunami proof) with extraordinary views of ocean, mountains, sunrises and sunsets,waterfalls and rainbows; provides direct access across the lawn to the swimming pool and has several beaches nearby. The 'backyard' invites sunbathing in front of our lanai. The lanai itself is one of the essential living spaces of our home.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Watching sunsets, whales, dolphins, tropical birds, sailboats and surfers directly from the lanai in the year-round mild climate; the easy access to site seeing, beaches, the swimming pool and to shopping for local food in farmers markets have made us fall in love with our niche in paradise. The serenity of our place is a treat we could not do without.
