This property is located at The Plantation at Princeville, one of the newest condominium projects in the Princeville resort community. The property is approximately 28 miles from Lihue airport on the north shore of Kauai. This is an excellent location to use as a home base on the north shore and is within 10 minutes from Hanalei and approximately 25 minutes from Ha'ena and the base of the Napali coast hiking trails. You will find convenient access to beaches less than one mile away from the condo including Anini and Hideway’s beach. The St. Regis resort is located approximately 1 mile from The Plantation at Princeville and is an excellent location to grab a drink and watch the sun set over Bali Hai. The Princeville shopping center is also less than a mile away and where you will find a grocery store and several shops and restaurants. If you have small children you will find a community park in the Princevelle resort community just steps away from the Princeville shopping center. The community also had a jogging path which can be accessed just across the street from The Plantation at Princeville complex.

Where do I start, there are so many wonderful things to do while on Kauai’s north shore. I have named a few of our favorite things to do below:
Beaches - we love Anini beach, we usually take the hiking trail (access near the Westin in Princeville). The hike is a bit steep at times so if you are not up for that you can always drive. Tunnels beach is in Ha'ena near the end of the road and is a 20 minute drive, this beach has great snorkeling and has a great view of Bali Hai. If you asked our daughter, her favorite beach is probably Hanalei bay beach and pier. Hideway’s beach is also wonderful and is located about a mile away from the house, parking is limited, and there is a hike involved but once there you will enjoy this small secluded spot. Hiking - we love the Napali coast hike. You will find the trail head at the end of the Kuhio highway (hwy 56) in Ha'ena state park. Golf - Princeville is home to the Prince course and also the Makai golf club (across the street from The Plantation). Spa - spa treatments are plentiful at the St. Regis and the Westin, both located within one mile of the plantation. Other - you may also consider a helicopter tour, boat tour, snorkeling tour, scuba diving, biking, horseback riding or renting a kayak/stand up paddle board.
We have only listed restaurants/food selling establishments that we frequent while in town:
Java Kai - a great spot to grab and sip your morning coffee and bagel sandwich or afternoon tea. A must stop every time we are in town. Bubba's Burgers - located in Hanalei and also Kaapa we think that this is one of the best burgers in town. We love the location on Hanalei where we can eat our burgers and watch the world go by. Baracuda - nice upscale restaurant in Hanalei, check out their website for the sample menu. St.Regis resort - pricy but worth a drink and a few snacks at the bar area during sunset. Costco- we also like to cook at home so we always stock up on essentials upon arrival. The Kauai
Costco is about 10 minutes from the Lihue airport in the opposite direction so we usually stop in on our way to the condo after landing at the airport. Foodland - located in the Princeville shopping center, approximately one mile from the condo, you can pick up grocery items for your stay. Lappert's ice cream - grab yourself a sweet treat or treat the kids. Lappert's is located in the Princeville shopping center. The dolphin fish market - we have not tried the restaurant but love the fish market. Chevron gas station in Princeville - sells locally raised grass fed beef in a fridge at the back!
