About Corina Potter

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Studied, worked at UCLA and lived in Los Angeles, CA. Moved to beautiful Kauai a few years ago. I love contact with nature, people, and music.

Corina Potter purchased this house in 2004

Why Corina Potter chose Princeville

I built this home for my family in 2004. Life now brings us back to Los Angeles after 18 years residing in Kauai. My children were raised in this beautiful corner of the world. We are very attached to Kauai and want to maintain our connection with this blissful spot that means so much to us. Hence we decided to share our 'Hale' it with others while we are temporarily gone and enjoy it when we come back to visit!

I hope you enjoy Sunset Palms and feel the warmth of our 'Ohana' during your stay as much as we enjoyed living here all these years.

What makes this house unique

We love the location, the north shore of Kauai has so much to offer. A myryad of places to go and things to do.

Our favorite playground is Hanalei Bay. Calm awesome long summers, great for late beach sunsets, or just simple walks with friends down the bay. Incredible picturesque winters with colorfull sunsets and amazing surf. We feel spoiled when we can go and just look at the ocean, or sunsets, within walking distance from the home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Corina,

I wrote a 5 star review for you. We just loved your beautiful home, it took our breath away. The kids had so much fun. Thanks again for everything and sharing this amazing home with us. We saw it was for sale – good luck! We selfishly hope you keep it because we want to come back again!

  • 5 of 5

This home is simply stunning inside and out, and lacks nothing. It comes will everything your family will need, including beach gear and pool toys. The owner is very easy to work with and is kind and thoughtful. She has taken care of every detail for you. Princeville is phenomenal. We will be back again and again, it was an unforgettable experience.

paradise for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights here with our 3 adult children, their partners, and our grandchildren. It was perfect as we had plenty of personal space but lots of room to gather for meals and hanging out. The house is very well equipped and we had pretty much everything we needed. It was especially wonderful as Hawaii is mid point for the East Coast gang and the New Zealand residents. Having everyone together was such a treat and not that many places could accomodate all 11 of us. Corinna was a great hostess and always got back to me within the day when I had questions before we checked in...Highly recommend this spot.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 5 children, very spacious and comfortable. It has high quality beds and linen, the kitchen is well equiped. We enjoyed the mountain view and covered deck. The Princeville location worked great, we spent several days at Hanalei Bay and Anini Beach.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Our large family thoroughly enjoyed Corina's spacious Princeville home. The living and kitchen areas were perfect for gatherings and meals. The upper level patio made for enjoyable outside dining and all bedrooms were comfortable with a really nice master bedroom and bath. The house was very clean upon arrival and the community pool and tennis court offered additional activities. The short walk to the St. Regis provided spectacular beach and mountain views and a popular Sunday brunch. Wonderful house and gracious host.

Great Views, Spacious, and a Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in this beautiful house on the breathtaking island of Kauai! The views from the upstairs kitchen, living room and deck are spectacular! The neighborhood and the nearby golf course are beautiful. The view in every direction you look is worthy of a postcard. If you just stand on the back balcony and take pictures, you could open your own souvenir shop!

Corina is a gracious host! When we arrived we found a bottle of wine and a box of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts. That was a nice touch that we appreciated very much! The home also comes equipped with all you need for fun: a barbeque, beach chairs, beach toys, and tennis rackets to use on the court that you can overlook from the back deck! The pool is next to the tennis court!

There are nearby stores to shop, beaches, and the Hideaways pizza pub by the ocean was pretty darn good.

Thank you, Corina, for your hospitality and the use of your incredible home.

Sunset Drive Community is a small community within Princeville Resort with 25 homes and lots in a circle with its own clubhouse with tennis court, pool and parking. Guests of Sunset Palms are welcome to use the pool and tennis court of the Sunset Drive Community Clubhouse free of charge.

The house is within minutes from many wonderful places that will remain in you memoirs for years to come. Extraordinary championship golf courses near by are the Makai and the Prince.

The Community of Princeville is a luxurious destination located at the north shore of Kauai. In Princeville you will find beaches, golf, tennis, swimming, shopping, luxury resorts, banks, post office, both elegant and casual restaurants and entertainment. There is also a walk/jogging path next to golf course. A Playground and a Library. One of our favorite outings is to watch the sun go down from the St. Regis Bar with its spectacular 180-degree view of Hanalei Bay and the Majestic Mountains, as we listen to fabulous Jazz on Sunday evenings. Princeville is near the most beautiful, panoramic and highly rated beaches in the world. Hanalei Bay, our favorite every day adventure, is a two mile long beach with exceptional beauty at different locations and during different seasons. Other great beaches are Anini, Puupoa, Hideaways, Lumahai, Haena State beach park, Kee beach, Kalihiwai, Rock Quarry.

Heading north from Princeville you will come across the historic surf town of Hanalei, with unique shops, surf shops, yoga center, kayak rental, coffee house, shave ice, bars, entertainment, luaus and restaurants. Baracuda is our favorite restaurant in Hanalei. Hanalei beach is our favorite playground for beach, surf, swim, watch sunsets, walks and runs. If you continue north from Hanalei, you will encounter many 'bridges' and beaches through a scenic drive to Wet and Dry Caves, spiritual Limahuli Gardens, Haena and 'the end of the road' a beautiful Ke'e beach and the trail head for hikes to Na Pali Coast.

Heading south the old town of Kilauea with the Kilauea Lighthouse and bird sanctuary, and many quaint shops and restaurants.
