About Phil Johnson

I moved to Kauai as a young man and always envisioned having a dream home here. I chose Princeville, simply, because there is no more beautiful island environment in the world. It offers world class surfing, Paddeling, hiking and you really feel like you are in the South Pacific...far away from home.

Phil Johnson purchased this house in 2014

Why Phil Johnson chose Princeville

The property is a stunning island style home. It couldn't be more perfectly located for enjoying all the wonders Kauai's has to offer: it's very close proximity to beaches/surfing, golf, hiking and stand up paddling. The home is open, spacious, well laid out and very comfortable and fully equipped. Everything you imagine about a dream island get a way.

What makes this house unique

** JUST INSTALLED SPLIT AIR CONDITIONING (11-25-17). 3 separate units to help keep the house cool during the summer months or warmer days.

Luxury accommodations in a stylish Hawaiian home. Close to shopping, beaches, golf and almost any outdoor activity you could dream of.

A wonderful place to stay in Princeville

  • 5 of 5

This was our 17th trip to Hawaii, but our first time renting house. What an amazing experience. Hale Aukai was PERFECT for us--a wonderfully maintained home that is close to everything. The space and layout worked great for us and our two boys. We will be back.

Great house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is nice and has everything you need!! The location is also great, we loved the north side of Kauai better than the other areas, it's lush and green, perfect Hawaii. Very close to Hanalei, there's everything you need there, beach, shops, restaurants.

Relaxing piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Incredible hospitality and flexibility from the owner when we had a family medical issue that required a change in dates. The house is immaculate and very welcoming. Well equipped with everything you need. After a full day of adventure, the home is inviting in its tranquility enhanced with a peaceful private backyard. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back again soon. Highly recommend. Thank you, Phil for your warm Aloha welcome.

Spectacular, spacious, well stocked home!

  • 4 of 5

I love this house, I'm hosting a small wedding reception in the back yard, Phil is really helpful, the house is well stocked, from kitchen to cleaning supply, we are aware there is not air conditioning in the house, unfortunately we came at the most humid hot time of the year, there are several fans available but the heat just linger in the house, we used mostly the lanai area since that's the coolest part of the house, couple more good size fan would be helpful.

Car: recommended

Hale Aukai (home of the seafarer) is located within the Princeville Resort area on the north shore of the beautiful Garden Island of Kauai. Princeville sits directly above Hanalei Bay and is about a 45 minute drive from Lihue, Airport. It has a very nice Country Club feeling about it as it is surrounded by two great championship golf courses (Prince & Makai).

Princeville is situated on a 200 ft. marine terrace, above the world famous Hanalei Bay. Hanalei Bay became famous after the movie South Pacific was filmed on location. Some say it's the most beautiful island setting in the world.

The Anini beach walking trail is only a five minute walk from our property and is known for its exceptionally calm shoreline and crystal clear waters. The St. Regis's public beach access is within a short 5-10 minute walk where you can enjoy a spectacular sandy beach for swimming and snorkeling. There are many other beach trails within a short distance. Hanalei Bay and beach are 3.5 miles from the home.

The Princeville Shopping Center is a quick 5 minute walk from the house and it has a great Foodland grocery store, restaurants, bars, banks, Ace hardware, Chevron Station and much more for your convenience. World famous Tunnels Beach and the famous 'end of the road' and Napali Coast is only a 15 minute drive from the house. The napali is some of the most beautiful coastline and scenery in all of Hawaii and has been depicted in many movies and television shows. It provides tremendous hiling opportunities for all levels, depending on how far you want to go into the Kalalau Valley. Some fantastic restaurants in Hanalei town which is a 5 minute drive including my two favorites, BaraCuda (SFO style tapas) and The Dolphin (sushi). Get reservation's as both are very popular. Great surfing for all levels on the Northshore including hanalei Bay, Pine Trees, Tunnels and Cannons. Stand Up Paddeling/Surfing is very popular and awesome on Kauai including paddeling the beautiful Hanalei river (flat water) all the way into Hanalei Bay both flat and surfing depending on your desire. Many Yoga studios within Hanalei for those seeking a more mellow vibe.
