About Marlena Connella

We, Marlena and Stephen, are long time friends and we are also co-owners of the Island Soap & Candle Works shops here on Kauai. We bought this little condo, our 'Island Soap Hale', for our own use and that of our immediate family, and to share as a special vacation rental. We made it as lovely and comfortable as we like ourselves, and so it is our second 'hale' (home) on Kauai. If you decide to stay here, we hope you feel relaxed and comfortable while you explore the magic of the beautiful Garden Island.

Marlena Connella purchased this condo in 2013

Why Marlena Connella chose Princeville

We are located on the beautiful and lush North Shore of Kauai, close to beaches and recreation, as well as grand resorts. Very affordable and newly renovated with lovely island art and furniture. Check out our fully unsolicited rave reviews!

What makes this condo unique

Relax on the lanai surrounded by island botanicals, including a view of the beautiful banyan tree across the grassy courtyard. The pool is steps away, and coco palms sway in the trade winds as you gaze up at the blue skies. And several stunning beaches are a very short drive away. It's so easy to relax here!

Great place to stay in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to stay on the north side of the island this is a great choice. The pictures actually don't show how nice and big this place is inside. It is a short drive to the Nopali coast and some great snorkeling spots. We had a little issue with not receiving all the check in info but I reached out to the owner and she resolved the issue almost immediately and was so easy to work with. There are places to get food close by and it had a nice pool and BBQ area just a short walk from the front door. I highly recommend.

Comfortable accomodations in a lush setting

We felt right at home from day one. The amenities offered made it possible for us to cook some meals at home or enjoy all that Kauai has to offer.

Tasteful, functional and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Very relaxing stay. A little close to other condos but if you are okay with that its great. Also had trouble accessing the pool with the given pool key and the hot tub was out of service. Other then that, the condo was very functional and tastefully decorated. Neighbors were great.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! We're glad you liked the condo and we're sorry for the temporary inconvenience of the broken hot tub. It is now repaired with a new motor. Aloha! ;-)

Beautiful, private condo- perfect for exploring the north shore

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our Kauai vacation and loved our stay at this condo!! It is well located- close to Princeville amenities and Queen Emma's bath. It is quiet- no traffic or street noise. And it is beautifully decorated- it's evident that Marlena took great care in creating a welcoming retreat for her guests. The patio is large and surrounded by lush greenery providing a perfect spot for a private outdoor breakfast. There are numerous windows and strong fans providing ample ventilation and it was great to have access to a washer/drier. Check-in and check-out were seamless.

I would definitely look to stay here again if/when we return to Kauai and would enthusiastically recommend Marlena's condo to any of my family or friends!
