Overview

About the property

Island style and elegantly stocked home is your ultimate Kauai retreat.

Kept pristine as our vacation home for the past 6 years, we've recently chosen to share our beautiful townhouse with guests. With upgraded finishes, top quality linens and completely stocked throughout, the discerning visitor will feel as if they're staying at their own luxurious second home.

There are many condo/townhome complexes in Princeville, but few are as nicely landscaped and as packed with amenities as Nihilani. With a tropical ensconced pool, jacuzzi and BBQ area, you'll know you're staying on the north shore of the Garden Isle.

About Randy Brown

The owners have traveled the world looking for great surf and beautiful island paradises, and chose to purchase a second home on the north shore of Kauai. The surf is world-class, the beaches ranked in the top 10 on most lists, the hikes are spectacular, and the surrounding scenery jaw-dropping. They love Kauai but can't be there as much as they like, so they're happy to share their place with other adventurers (or folks just looking to relax and revitalize).

Randy Brown purchased this condo in 2008

Why Randy Brown chose North Shore

After spending many years in Hawaii, and owning another condo on Oahu, they chose Kauai for it's beauty, waves and relaxed vibe. Princeville, and Nihilani, were an easy choice because they wanted to be on the north shore, with access to everything it has to offer, and they wanted a really comfortable, peaceful, high-end place. The pool, spa and BBQ area is top notch and always kept meticulously clean. It's not a large complex, so it's often quiet and very peaceful at the pool, but also throughout the entire complex. The walking/bike paths are extensive and gorgeous throughout Princeville. You're a short walk to restaurants, golf, Queen's Bath, Hideaway's beach and surf break, and both the Westin and the St. Regis (great for a sunset cocktail).

What makes this condo unique

While there are lots of condo complexes in Princeville, many show their age and lack of maintenance. Nihilani is one of the newest and nicest complexes on the north shore. Additionally, the owners spared no expense in the finishes they chose for their unit. Granite counters, stainless appliances and elegantly comfortable furniture. Plus there is an attached 2 car garage, so no packing things in and out of the parking lot!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Unit #6B in Nihilani was the ideal place for our family vacation!! Clean, modern, and beautifully decorated, this spacious town home was perfect for the six of us.

Just 5 minutes from Hanalei in one direction and 5 minutes to Kilauea in the other, we were able to visit many beaches and great places to eat very conveniently.

Our kids loved the pool and hot tub--they went first thing in the morning, again after the beach, and again before bed. 😊

Comfortable beds, with high thread count sheets, in all the spacious bedrooms meant that everyone felt relaxed and slept well each night.

The couch is comfy and clean, there's a great TV, and plenty of DVDs to choose from.

We made dinner every night in the well stocked kitchen. Randy and Traci have thought of everything you'd want to prepare and serve great meals. The dishes, flatware, and appliances are all first rate.

Having the spacious garage makes getting home from the beach so much easier! And the washer and dryer means you can pack lighter and have dry towels every morning.

We highly recommend this unit and these owners!! We had an awesome experience! A 5 star experience!

Perfect condo for a Hawaiian vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this condo for nine days and loved every minute of it! This condo easily accommodated our family of five (two adults and three children ages 3-12) as well as my parents. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. One of our favorite things was all of the beach gear available for our use. We were able to use umbrellas, snorkel sets, boogie boards, beach chairs, water shoes, water noodles, beach toys, etc. We felt very safe in the community and never worried about theft. The owner provides very thorough information about the local beaches and restaurants which was very helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend it to any potential travelers!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very well-equipped with everything one could need - right down to the ice maker and blender! We have stayed in many different condos on previous holidays, but have never had one with a garage; we were very happy with this perk! It made loading/unloading luggage, groceries, daily gear, (& kids!) very convenient. On another positive note, the beds are all extremely comfortable!! We also appreciated the fact that household items such as dish soap, dishwasher detergent, garbage bags, etc were provided; very handy.

As far as the Nihilani complex itself, it is in a very nice location, with a beautiful pool area.

We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking to stay on the North shore.

Excellent Condo in Princeville, Kauai

  • 5 of 5

This condo located in Princeville was an excellent choice. It is located in what I think is one of the most beautiful places. The home is very cozy and has everything you need. Staying at Nihilani added to one of the best vacations I've ever been on and the grounds are very well kept and gorgeous. Making reservations with Lauren the owner was very easy and she made the whole experience stress free with her organization. The condo also has 2 beach cruiser bikes which we rode to watch the sunset nightly. You couldn't ask for a better spot to stay on your vacation.

Wonderful condo, wonderful hostess in Princeville

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to spend our days on the North Shore. The condo is modern, well decorated and fully stocked with niceties (including a couple of bikes!). Lauren was also wonderful - very helpful in making recommendations for things to do, places to eat, etc. And very responsive as well.

Next time on the North Shore, we will most definitely want to stay here again!

Perfect Surprise Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A surprise 50th Birthday Celebration from my husband at this immaculately kept condo was fabulous! Very high end decor and luxurious linens throughout made our stay cozy & comfortable. Very spa like yet, we knew we were in Hawaii. Loved sleeping with windows open and hearing the sound of palm fronds blowing in the wind.Beautiful grounds with lovely pool and spa. Easy to get to and close to adorable shopping center and loved the market. This place has everything you would need for a memorable stay on Kauai. Oh, I can't wait to go back:)
