About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom On A Golf Course With A Stunning Ocean View!

Our newly remodeled vacation home already has amazing ocean and golf course views but now boasts brand new modern bathrooms with Hans Grohe rain showers and fixtures plus a free-standing tub in the master bathroom, state of the art kitchen with Caesarstone counters and Kitchen Aid appliances, all new windows and doors, 8 foot tall sliders leading to the rear lanai, a covered outdoor lanai for dining, wall to wall hardwood flooring, new patio decking, all new furnishings and an enclosed garage. Each room including the lanai is equipped with Big Ass fans, considered the most efficient and quietest fans on the market.

Hanalei, on the island of Kauai, is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. Its pristine beaches are surrounded by a stunning array of waterfalls and emerald-green cliffs.

Melia Kai is a private home with a sweeping view of the cobalt blue Pacific Ocean and the cascading waterfalls of Namolokama. Located on the Princeville Makai golf course, our house offers the visitor a wonderful opportunity to do just about everything---but it is also a terrific place to do absolutely nothing!

The spectacular views invite you to walk barefoot across the fairway to the edge of a 150-foot cliff (security may ask you to leave), where you look down on waves crashing onto the lava rock below. If you watch closely, you will see turtles swimming in the coves beneath you.

You will find that Melia Kai offers the best of two worlds - the luxurious amenities of the Princeville resort and the exotic remoteness of Kauai's north shore. One minute you can be sipping a Mai Tai in a crisp summer outfit at the sumptuous St. Regis Hotel, and the next you can be navigating a jungle trail in your bathing suit looking for the waterfall at the head of the Kalihiwai Valley.

Come stay the week at Melia Kai and experience paradise first hand!

About Meg Chan Feitelberg

Our family lives in Los Angeles. We are originally from South Africa (Dad) and Chinese from the Philippines (Mom). Our 3 kids were raised in Los Angeles and enjoy the benefits of their multi-cultural background. While the kids were growing up, we frequently came to Hawaii for vacations always dreaming of owning a home in Kauai one day.

Meg Chan Feitelberg purchased this house in 2013

Why Meg Chan Feitelberg chose Princeville

We have always wanted to own a home on the Garden Island of Kauai. Why? Location, Location, Location. Stunning ocean views and a beautiful golf course just outside your windows. You can see Bali Hai. where South Pacific was filmed. Drive around and you might imagine yourself in the middle of the Hunger Games or in Jurassic World. Kauai is not as touristy as Honolulu or Maui which we prefer.

The house is only one floor and very easy to maintain. You have your privacy unlike hotels or condos. It's a great family home. Spacious enough for a family of 6 or 6 great buddies to hang out but small enough that you don't spend your vacation cleaning up.

Plus we only accept reservations and payments through VRBO/Homeaway so this protects you from scammers or reservation errors (ie double bookings).

What makes this house unique

You get the benefit of a private home. Quiet solitude in paradise or loud, boisterous fun - it's your choice. Secluded Hideaways Beach is a short walk away behind Pali Ke Kua condos or take a walk in the opposite direction about 16 homes away and explore Queen Emma's Bath. Princeville Shopping Center is a 2 minute drive away and has everything you need (Foodland, pilates, touristy shops, restaurants, wine shops, bars, real estate offices you name it). Apparently beer is the same price at Foodland here as it is in Lihue or Kapaa so no need to shop and shlep. Hanalei Beach is only a short 5 minute drive away and that is pure heaven. Anini Beach with its beautiful sand and calm waters is only 10 minutes drive away door to beach. There is great snorkeling a little further down from Hanalei Beach at Tunnels Beach. Kayaking and SUP are available only 5 minutes away in Hanalei on the Hanalei River. And if you don't want to do much, sit out on our lanai and just watch the golfers and the birds - truly relaxing. Walk out to the bluff through the golf course (at your own risk because security will ask you to leave) with your glass of wine after 6:00 pm (very short walk) and see the waves crash on the lava rock while the sun sets. You can also rent golf carts from the Makai Golf Course clubhouse and ride along the golf course path riding past our house to see the awesome sunset view (be sure to call and reserve your cart ahead of time just in case).

Absolutely lovely home with gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience renting this home. It has been lovingly remodeled and is very comfortable and well-furnished. The location is terrific--a peaceful neighborhood with stunning views that is very close to beaches, shopping, and local attractions. We really appreciated working with Meg--she was clear, kind, and prompt in her communications with us. We highly recommend this vacation rental and hope to return before long--thank you, Meg!

We had an amazing time in Princeville and this was such a lovely place to come home to!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures represent the home perfectly. Wonderful kitchen had everything we needed. Great patio for dining and relaxing while enjoying the view. Great breezes and fans kept the house very comfortable. Close to many things but very peaceful and quiet setting. Amazing sunset views and a nice area to walk or jog. We would stay here again.

Fantastic and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a terrific time here. The house is clean and airy, Meg is a terrific owner, and the area is superb. Walking distance to queens bath and a bit more of a spirited walk to hideaways beach. Highly recommend

Owner's Response: Mahalo Jenkins. So glad you and your family enjoyed the home. I love that you said it is "clean" - very important word for me since it's something I always look for when I am renting a home or hotel room. I guess you enjoyed the rope climb to Hideaways Beach - well worth that climb once you get to the bottom. I am so happy it's accessible since the storm. Please come again soon.

Better than the pictures!!!!!! We couldn't have been happier with this home! It was well stocked, in a great location, and plenty big for our family of 4. The extra amenities of beach supplies including many chairs, boogie boards and a cooler made our stay over the top fantastic! We were conflicted every day of wanting to go explore the island and staying and enjoying the house. We wouldn't hesitate in a minute to stay there again. Thank you so much!!!!!!

Pristine house in a lovely setting.

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds are immaculate. Loved the airy open look of the modern/retro decor, like stepping into a magazine. We felt very pampered being guests here, and took great care to respect the carefully laid out house and community rules. Clearly a beautifully cared for home. Not a place for roughing it up.

Owner's Response: Thank Robin for the perfect review. Thank you so much for taking great care of our home during your stay. I agree - not a place for roughing it up. That is such a compliment that you felt like it came out of a magazine. Such an honor.
