About the Property
Right above the ocean - awesome views and sounds! *Discounts -see below!*
"It kind of feels like the house is actually over the ocean".
(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 all-new un-retouched photographs, and see for yourself how spectacular Surf Song really is.
We allow small weddings. Our location is so beautiful that in July 2015 Pride of Maui magazine named Surf Song in their "Top 10 Wedding Locations in Hawaii!" You can read the article by typing PrideofMaui.com/blog into your search engine, and entering Wedding in their search bar.
DISCOUNTS ALWAYS AVAILABLE!
* Last few summer dates are now reduced!
* Couples and small groups discount. (The perfect place for Honeymoons!)
* Longer stays and bookings which fill an existing gap in our calendar - even a short one - receive a discount.
*We want to fill our calendar and will always cheerfully work with guests to encourage bookings!
We require only 20% of rent and taxes to guarantee a booking. Balance is due 90 days before the stay begins (120 days for summer peak , and 180 days for Christmas/New Years)
(Please note: 6-7 day minimum stays, beginning or ending on a Saturday, are normally required - excepting to fill an existing gap in our calendar - so as to have a calendar which works best for most people as it fills up. Saturday to Saturday stays are required in June and July.)
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 it's "drop dead" ocean view and 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 new Dimension 1 Amore Bay Spa, said to be among the world's best.
Inside the bright, open 2300 square-foot home you will find a layout centered on an expansive living room, the centre 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 bottle awaits you on arrival, or choose fresh local juice!)
Surf Song is also perfect for four couples, each having bedroom with private ensuite bathroom. Two families with children 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 seeps up to 8 adults and two children or teens in beds in the bedrooms.
Details are: East side:
One King oceanfront master; ensuite with double quartz vanity and toilet, with ocean views from both soaker tub and rain shower.
One Twin or ( made up as a King if you choose) plus twin "Murphy bunk beds" - full size single beds which fold down from the walls other room sleeps up to two adults and two kids or teens. It has garden views and ocean glimpses and an Ensuite with pedestal basin, toilet, and large shower.
Queen oceanfront master; ensuite with double quartz vanity and toilet, plus walled outdoor ocean view bathroom area with rain shower and arriving soon an outdoor ocean view Balinese stone soaker tub.
Garden side Queen with ocean and Bali Hai views; ensuite with pedestal basin, toilet and 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 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 enjoys a wonderful trade wind cooled micro climate almost all year round making A/C usually unnecessary. It is really needed only in the summer or during occasional periods of "Kona winds" when the trade winds die away for a few days.)
The garage features a Kettler table tennis table, lots of 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 several Surfboards, lots of Boogie boards and a Stand Up Paddleboard.)
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 centre 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.
Relax in the knowledge that unlike some offerings, this is a long-established, licensed vacation rental in the Princeville Visitor Designated Area with a caring and involved owner and under the scrupulous professional management of the Principal Broker of a local real estate office (who manages only a very few select properties) together with a dedicated professional team of cleaner, groundskeeper and maintenance personnel. 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) of Kauai Tropical Properties. His contact number is 808 651 8050. This information must be disclosed on all advertising related to any Hawaii vacation rental which is legally compliant.
Important note re COMMUNITY POOL: A large swimming pool and air-conditioned fitness center are located at the Makai Golf Club, about a five - ten minute walk or a few minutes by bike from the property. The swimming pool is set up for adult lane swimming only. At this time, only individual monthly memberships at $125 are available.
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 .
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Serene and private location at the very end of an exclusive private road, yet within walking, biking or short driving distance by private roads of Princeville's many amenities.
Several beaches are similarly close, while many more lie within a 10 to 15 minute drive including life guarded beaches with vehicle access.
It is hard to overstate the abundance and quality of outdoor leisure activities within a short drive of the house. Shopping, yoga, massage, dining in a large variety of restaurants and bars and entertainment are close at hand.
You may find however that you share our reluctance to leave Surf Song and that much time is spent enjoying the amenities of the house and the spectacular beauty of the oceanfront Lanai.

Why the Owner Chose Princeville, HI, USA:
After several years of serious looking throughout the islands, the decision to buy this property was instant. It was simply the best property we had ever seen. Kauai's North Shore eclipses in beauty anything we know and has so many wonderful beaches, but the land largely consists of a flat bench ending in an oceanfront bluff. Few private homes are located on the bluff, while even fewer look directly down onto a beach, coral and surf. We are sure you will agree that Surf Song is rare and stunning. We had rented frequently on the North Shore before we made this purchase. We found being up on the bluff much more private and quiet than being right by the beach - and we love the views. We also came to appreciate the many different micro micro climates of the North Shore. Trade winds freshen and reduce humidity. Rainfall is often less away from the mountains - yet some beach areas are very close to them and as a result, we feel, may be more humid. We felt that the right ocean bluff home could offer a perfect combination of almost constant breezes and lower rainfall, of peace and convenience. We think we found it! Surf Song does all this in a timeless, classic Plantation style which invites elegant, easy living and an open plan which celebrates the beauty of its environment and invites in the perfect climate outside. For us it was love at first sight! We've seen our guests react in the same way. We hope you will too.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The sound of surf as you approach the house - and throughout it. Ocean views from almost every room in the house. The expansive tropical hardwood oceanfront deck offering both Sun and Shade throughout the year as well as a tranquil shaded rear Lanai. A bright open floor plan with room for everyone. Separation between the East master suite and garden side suite, and the two ocean view suites on the West side. Perfect for two families. Dolphins and turtles year-round, whales and albatross in winter, stunning summer light. A heaven full of stars. Escape….Calm….Bliss...
