“…Heavenly. We could not have found a better spot for a family holiday on Kauai”.
"It kind of feels like the house is actually over the ocean".
"The word here is Epic!"
(When the bi-fold glass panel wall is open) "The living room becomes part of the deck overlooking the Pacific. It was an absolutely beautiful setting for our family activities".
"The stunning view was difficult to pull yourself away from, seen from the kitchen, great room, bedrooms, and even while showering. Some afternoons we simply didn't want to -- or need to -- leave the lanai".
We're not saying this; our guests are in the reviews below. Check out our un-retouched photographs, and see for yourself how spectacular Surf Song really is.

When you arrive at Surf Song's exclusive location at the very end of a private cul-de-sac and glimpse the ocean beyond, you will know that you chose wisely. On entering the home, you will be awed by what the previous owners described so well as its "drop dead" ocean view and be surrounded by the gentle sound of surf breaking on coral in the pristine bay below.
Why stay here? In a few words, peace, beauty...bliss! You could choose a property down at the beach - but you would be unlikely to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet, or the breathtaking views, found on this unique oceanfront bluff. And the path to the beautiful and little used beach below the house begins a two minute walk from the property (about 10 minutes to walk down to the beach from the house in all. ) Surf Song is also centrally located for Queens Baths, Hideaways, Hanalei and Anini beaches - all are within 10 minutes or so.
Dolphins and turtles may be seen up close in the bay - the turtles actually surf sometimes! In winter, humpback whales breach offshore here. (We have tripod-mounted and hand-held binoculars). Albatross court and nest right in neighborhood and teach their young to fly from the surrounding bluffs. In summer, both sunrise and sunset may be enjoyed from the lanai, which features a Dimension 1 Amore Bay Spa, said to be among the world's best.
Inside the bright, open 2500 square-foot home you will find a layout centered on an expansive living room, the center point of which is a fully screened 17 ft. Nana wall which opens fully to the ocean side lanai. Furniture throughout is top of the line Tommy Bahama Island Estate.
The gleaming, all new oceanfront kitchen with cafee cabinets and white quartz counters is fully equipped with everything from a wine fridge to Royal Doulton dinnerware and crystal champagne flutes. (Your welcome French champagne awaits you on arrival.)
Surf Song is perfect for four couples, each having bedroom with private ensuite bathroom. Two families works equally well, both families having their own "wing". Surf Song is also a popular honeymoon destination and is often rented by couples seeking a private and romantic oceanfront experience.
The house is centered on the large vaulted oceanside great room. Sleeping accommodations are divided into two wings, one on each side of the property, each with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The house sleeps up to 10 adults.
Details are: East side:
King oceanfront master suite. Oceanfront ensuite with double quartz vanity and toilet, with ocean and coral reef views from both soaker tub and Grohe rain shower.
King garden view suite which also features twin "Murphy bunk beds" - full size single bunk beds with Sealy Posturepedic mattresses for two additional guests, which fold away when not in use. Ensuite with pedestal basin, toilet, and large Kohler/Grohe shower.
Oceanfront master. King bed due to arrive in January 2018 to replace former Queen. Ensuite with double quartz vanity and toilet, plus walled/privacy glazed outdoor ocean view bathroom area with stainless steel rain shower and Balinese stone soaker tub.
Oceanview Queen with lanai with Bali Hai views. Ensuite with pedestal basin, toilet and Kohler/Grohe tub/shower combination.
Each bedroom walks out to its own lanai. All bedrooms give the wonderful experience of being lulled to sleep by the sounds of surf breaking on the coral reef below the house and palm trees in the breeze.
All bedrooms have individually controlled Air Conditioning with new top of the line Mitsubishi SILENT operation split units with external compressors. (Surf Song's direct ocean bluff location means that it enjoys a rare and wonderful tradewind-cooled micro climate almost all year round, making A/C usually unnecessary. A/C can however be great to have during occasional periods of "Kona winds" or other weather conditions when the trade winds die away sometimes for a day or two.)
The garage features a Kettler table tennis table, bikes in various sizes for rides around Princeville's many private roads and bike paths, and all the equipment you need for beach fun . (We supply Tommy Bahama chairs and sun umbrellas, coolers, a beach trolley, as well as lots of Surfboards, Boogie boards and two Stand Up Paddleboards.)
Surrounded by nature though it is, Surf Song lies only a few minutes’ drive or bike on quiet, private roads, from all of Princeville’s superb amenities. These include many beaches and a full shopping center with high quality shops, cafes, restaurants and entertainment.
This is our home, found after years of searching on the islands. It is the loveliest place to be that we know. We welcome you to it with Aloha. Our mission is to ensure that, like us, having discovered it you will want to return again and again.

We all care very much about your vacation rental experience, as the 5 star reviews show.
Our Transient Accommodations Tax number is TA-074-845-7984-01. Our local property Manager is Bill Gillette, R(B). This information must be disclosed on all advertising related to any Hawaii vacation rental which is legally compliant.

We take time researching so as to be able to refer you to every type of concierge service - at no charge and usually at a discount on bookings: Wedding planner, Private chef, Massage or Yoga on the Lanai, and of course assistance with booking of all Kauai's attractions such as horseback riding, boat tours of Na Pali, zip lining, sport fishing, helicopter flight-seeing tours, luaus, and golfing. We receive no compensation from the people we suggest, leaving us free to recommend those who we believe will best serve you .
