Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bath: Quiet tropical garden setting Balinese Decor: Hardwood&Granite

This incredible patio home in Mauna Kai captures the true North Shore Feeling. A full luxury remodel has made this the most beautiful condo I have ever seen. Hardwood, granite, and quality furnishings throughout. Please click on the calendar tab above to check availability, it's always up to date. I favor stays that are back to back with other stays or ones that fill gaps of any size.

This condo is in the heart of the lush Kauai north shore. A short hike down the Queen's path takes you to peaceful Anini Beach and the blue Pacific where you can safely swim or snorkel with the whole family. Calm waters and a rich underwater life make Anini beach one of the best swimming spots on Kauai. This peaceful stretch of beach is protected by the largest coral reef in Hawaii, so instead of foamy waves breaking up on the sand, you can expect a lake like atmosphere. The protective reef creates a beautiful blue lagoon, unsuited for surfing or body-boarding, but perfect for swimming. Many other close beaches provide world class scenery, surfing, boggy boarding fun and snorkeling.

Mauna Kai is located between the Prince Golf Course and the Makai Course. This location will provide you with the finest tropical golf in the world, or for some it may just be a beautiful walk and great albatross and whale watching. Morning and sunset views from the golf course and the Westin are fantastic. Mauna Kai's tropical breezes and warm waters can be your next dream vacation. Top off the day with a relaxing dip in your private hot tub at this Mauna Kai patio home. The tropical landscaping is over the top and this fall the avocado tree was dropping fruit! Fresh delicious oranges were plentiful on the tree by the pool.

Our beautiful Mauna Kai home is in a lush garden setting at the end of a quiet walkway. It's a garden level unit with four walk out patios. An incredibly remodeled and custom decorated 1500 square feet with two bedrooms allow plenty of room to relax. Some two bedroom two bath condos are only 1000 sq ft, this is really spacious, even a pack & play for the baby. It has new living room sofa and side chairs that add to the home like feeling, it isn't your typical bare bones condo designed to be indestructible. Free WIFI.

The last owner described the remodel process as a labor of love. He spared no expense in importing the highest quality materials from Bali and the far east. The quality of this Asian decor is usually reserved for private custom homes. A private hot tub off the living room and master bedroom will make the end of your day in paradise complete. The full size Maytag washer/dryer make it your home away from home. We look forward to staying there several times a year and make it feel like home, completely livable and unique.

Tile floors throughout the main floor give it that clean cool feel. The main living area, on the ground floor, stays cooler than units with second or third story living areas. There is no AC, as is the case with almost all Princeville condos and homes. I have never felt a need for it and quickly adjust to the tropical warmth. Wall to wall doors open to all four patios and lush tropical gardens.

The well equipped kitchen is remodeled with beautiful granite counter tops and custom hardwood cabinets from Bali. The new gourmet cook set and Jenn Air range provide a very functional touch. We enjoy great family meals and entertaining for friends and neighbors. The previous owner was an executive chef on a private yacht and added his personal touch.

The master bedroom has a paneled ceiling, entertainment center with new TV. The Japanese shoji screens offer privacy and soft exotic outdoor light. The spacious master bathroom has a double stone sink, full soaking bathtub and shower. The guest bedroom and bath is equally beautiful with antiques, Asian art and hardwood carvings and a nice ceiling fan. A mother of pearl translucent sink is one of the special features.

The Mauna Kai pool is the largest condo pool in Princeville, a pool where you can actually swim laps! The pool is now solar heated, which is greatly appreciated in the cooler winter months. Our condo is close to this great pool. The gazebo offers a gas grill, sink, fridge and space for a private party for 50, however it is usually empty and quiet!

A short drive will take you to Hanalei town or Hanalei Beach Park, an incredible town beach with endless sand, soft waves, wade in swimming and boogie board fun. For the more adventurous, Na Pali Coast hiking, kayaking and Secret Beach are the Ultimate! Secret Beach is a 1/2 mile of ever changing natural sand, waves and cliffs with rarely more than a handful of souls.

A short stroll to the Westin Resort gives you access to the finest luxury spa and dining comforts, without the price of the room. Or maybe just visit for coffee, drinks, excellent whale watching, or the ultimate Bali Hai sunset! Bali Hai is the north shore's canvas for the last sunset in the United States each evening. The mountain's majestic profile is the beginning of the Na Pali cliffs along the north shore of Kauai and provides a romantic backdrop for ocean cruises, helicopter flights, and spectacular hiking adventures. This is the million dollar sunset view just steps from our Mauna Kai condo in Princeville. A stay in our spacious 1500 square foot home is just what you're looking for.

The Princeville Center, 5 blocks away, provides many dining and shopping options, including the local market to stock our fully equipped kitchen. High speed WIFI or plug-in internet service. A HD LCD TV with a DVR and Netflix in the living room and the new second TV in master suite will get you through a rainy day.

Reduced rates are given for bookings that are back to back with other reservations and for those that fill holes between existing bookings. There is no minimum stay for bookings that fill a gap between two other reservations. Call or email me to discuss.

Princeville, on the north shore, is a great base to see everything Kauai has to offer. So come have a wonderful stay in Paradise.

Notes:
Kauai Weather Weather you could be enjoying! Mon 11/26/2012 at 7 pm it is 74°F , today's high was H 80 F, and the low was L 66 F Step off the plane and feel the warm embrace of Kauai with average yearly temperatures ranging between 84 and 69 degrees. Ocean temperatures are also perfect ranging from 71 to 81 degrees year round. Much of Kauai's rainfall is a nightly occurrence, and the rain showers that do occur are almost always brief. When you do see rain, wait for the beautiful rainbows that follow. The trade winds in Kauai also keep things cool for visitors. The winds are generally light and help chase away much of Hawaii’s humidity. With such great weather, any time of year is a good time to visit Kauai. There is no AC in the condo and most guests feel it is not needed. We were just there for 28 days in January. It was rainy only 3 days and was often partly cloudy to mostly sunny, very easy to get a sunburn. The daily high was 75-80'F , the low was 65-70'F at night. Perfect

Wow! what a time. This is a Beautiful condo. We have been using VRBO for years all over the world and this was our best vacation yet. The atmosphere is fantastic. The place is very well kept and the kitchen was clean and very functional with everything you need to cook anything you want. It is close to the road but the owner Bruce has thought of everything from full wrap around privacy drapes to Asian sliding panels in the bedroom to bamboo hanging blinds outside around the private hot tub you can have all the privacy you need and then some. It is a great location and anytime you can walk to both the grocery store and the beach (with a small hike) you have nothing to complain about. All the details were presented to us in a timely manner and we did not have to chase the owner for a single thing. As a matter of fact we called the number for the on site handyman with a question and Bruce showed up in person to answer all our needs. Now that is service. There is a reason we chose to return to this Island, because we wanted a stress free vacation, and if that is what you are interested in this is the place for you. We learned something this time with VRBO... it is great to choose a nice rental unit, but it is priceless to have the great service and backup that this owner provided. Thanks again Bruce, we will be returning soon!!!! Aloha

PS if you want to sleep, don't feed the chickens, no matter where you stay, please, don't feed the chickens!

Artistic Balinese style condo in Princeville

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy staying in an exquisitely furnished, high end, artistically designed home, check out this place. The Balinese decor is gorgeous.

It is near the Westin and the St. Regis in Princeville on the north shore; close to both Kilauea and Hanalei and the best snorkeling on the island.

Although it is on the ground floor, the patio wraps around, offering views of the lush tropical landscaping. The owners have thoughtfully furnished it to fill every need and the kitchen is fully equipped.

Because there is a sunken living room and it's a short walk from the parking, it might not be the most accessible for someone with mobility issues (I'm thinking of my 86 year old mom).

We enjoyed our stay and recommend it!

Owner's Response: So glad you loved Kauai. It is good for everyone to know that this home has one step down to the living room area and master bedroom, so it's not entirely handicap accessible, but pretty close. Better than most condos that may have many flights of stairs. The lush gardens come right into the space. Aloha!

A great experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental unit was extremely clean. The space was very comfortable for the two couples in our party & very well supplied, with pots, pans, dishes, towels, etc. The condo floor plan is so unique, & much more impressive than the usual "cookie cutter" condos. It has very eclectic Asian decor....fine for adults, but not maybe so "toddler friendly."

Thank you to Bruce for sharing this great condo with us.

Clean, nice location, comfortable, with some good amenities and nice style

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location of the home for getting around to different locations on the north shore. The decor was lovely and having a dishwasher, washer and dryer, and a jacuzzi were all major perks. Very comfy bed and kitchen with all the necessities. The location being on the road with a neighbor who feeds all of the roosters so that they all gather right outside was the only downfall as it made the stay a bit noisy. Would have also loved more detailed info from the owner on directions/paths to the local beaches. Wonderful stay overall.

Owner's Response: The neighbor that feeds the chickens will move next week. This doesn't guarantee that the chickens will all move too, but some will. There are chickens and roosters everywhere on Kauai. I've been here for over a week now and the roosters haven't bothered me. They're about the same as always. They are part of the rural charm of Kauai's north shore. We also hear the "shama thrush" sing at sunset. Aloha, Bruce

Incredible!! We did not want to leave...

  • 5 of 5

Bruce has put a lot of care and thought in to every detail of this beautiful Asian/Polynesian Condo!! The home is well taken care of and immaculately clean, and all directions/keys/grocery cards/food suggestions are right there ready to go. The kitchen was incredible, and allowed us to cook mostly at home for the entire week. Also of note: nice to see the house keeper allows certain condiments, spices, butter etc hold over. All of the details are taken care of... Both Bedrooms are gorgeous, and the master bath has a great shower (with a very high shower head! I'm 6'4"...) Nice to have a washer/dryer, and of course the hot tub was nice to unwind in a few of the nights. We can't recommend this highly enough! I really enjoyed walking around the grounds of the condos as well - the gardeners are working every day, and plant orchids up in the trees!! If you're up for a long walk, you can walk/hike all the way to Queen's Bath... We hope to be able to definitely return to this beautiful home with our daughter in the future! Thank You Bruce!

Kauai Weather

Weather you could be enjoying!

Mon 11/26/2012 at 7 pm it is 74°F , today's high was

H 80 F, and the low was L 66 F

Step off the plane and feel the warm embrace of Kauai with average yearly temperatures ranging between 84 and 69 degrees. Ocean temperatures are also perfect ranging from 71 to 81 degrees year round.

Kauai offers seven distinct microclimates, from lush interior spots to arid areas on the West Side. Mount Waialeale (elevation 5,148 ft) is at the heart of Kauai's uninhabited interior and is a quintessential rainforest with over 400-inches of rain per year. The rain that falls around Mt. Waialeale generally does not affect the coastal parts of the island, which get far less rain than the central spots (as little as 18-inches a year in western areas). Much of Kauai's rainfall is a nightly occurrence, and the rain showers that do occur are almost always brief. When you do see rain, wait for the beautiful rainbows that follow.

The trade winds in Kauai also keep things cool for visitors. The winds are generally light and help chase away much of Hawaii’s humidity. With such great weather, any time of year is a good time to visit Kauai.
