Hanalei Bay, only 10 min by car, is one of the best beaches in the world - be sure to jump off the Hanalei Pier!

About SeaLodge F8 Manager

We are scientists at a world-class university in the Midwest US. We first visited Kauai in 1979 and immediately fell in love with the island. After spending our son's first birthday on Kauai's North Shore, we decided to buy a vacation place to be our 'tropical getaway' home. We have made many wonderful friends from all over the world while staying at our condo!

Since we are not always accessible by phone or e-mail, Adrienne has graciously agreed to manage our VRBO bookings, to better serve you! We are super happy to have Adrienne join our ohana. Adrienne is taking over from Jim Grindle, who decided to retire. We wish Jim all the best!

SeaLodge F8 Manager purchased this condo in 2004

Why SeaLodge F8 Manager chose Princeville

We looked at a LOT of places and fell in love with Sea Lodge because of its fantastic views, small size, and numerous amenities, including its convenient location to Hanalei Bay, Annini Beach, and Kilauea Lighthouse bird sanctuary. The spectacular views and homey feel immediately made us feel at ease. Each building has only 9 or 10 units, giving the development a private, family-like feel surrounded by breathtaking views of the ocean and mountains.

What makes this condo unique

We LOVE the views and sounds and the view of the Ocean ('Makai') which is how we named our home: 'Hale Makai'. We hope you'll love it as much as we do and enjoy it as often as you are able! We love decorating our Kauai home with tropical Hawaiian treasures, many from local artists.

Excellent and relaxing condo at Princeville

  • 5 of 5

We loved hearing the ocean each night. Close to many beach areas and snorkeling areas. The pool is right next door which was really nice. Felt private compared to other places we've stayed on Kauai. Loved watching the super moon rise over the waters from the bench on the grass just outside this condo. Bed was firm and we had to buy replacement batteries for both remotes, yet everything else was just perfect.

Nice, quiet location; needs upgrades

  • 3 of 5

The unit is located right in the Princeville complex, so it was perfect for north shore excursions, restaurants and photo locations. The unit was clean and had a pool right below it, plus a nice view of the ocean. The dishwasher was very small, so if you had 4 people staying (we were two) you'd have to be running it after every meal. The furniture was not very comfortable, but that is a personal choice, of course. The complex was quiet. The unit itself was a bit dated and in need of upgrades. The windows and sills are in pretty rough shape, the sliding screen on the tiny lanai is in rough shape... things like that. But the manager was very helpful. All in all a pleasant if not notable stay.

True Feel of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This rental had everything to give me a relaxed feel of being in paradise. On one side of the rental the landscaped grounds seamlessly faded into the mountainous wilds of Kauai, and on the other we had amazing ocean views. The location felt secluded but, only a few minutes away was a shopping area with a supermarket.

Location, grounds, view, and quiet amazing!

  • 3 of 5

Unit is dated but clean and has a persistent musty odour that can be managed by keeping windows and sliding door open. Double bed is not very comfortable and linens and pillows equivalent to spare bedroom as opposed to hotel grade. Orientation of the unit faces the pool and parking lot with limited view from the deck. But the view that can be seen is stunning. Be aware - basic kitchen necessities like coffee filters, saran wrap, aluminum foil etc are not part of the kitchen set up. The location, grounds and stunning view from the cliffs made our stay.

Very Nice Stay on North Side

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed four nights in late October. We enjoyed our stay and even watched the sunrise from the bench that overlooks the ocean. Plenty to do on the north end and we liked staying in Princeville. The condo had a few minor repair issues but nothing that effected our overall stay.

Excellent choice

  • 4 of 5

F8 condo was just right for me and my daughter. The location was excellent- close to my son's place in Kilauea and to sights and beaches.

secluded Sea Lodge Beach

Whales and dolphins are visible spouting from our condo in winter; spinner dolphins and sea turtles are year-round visitors. Tow-in surfers are also visible from our condo when the waves are big. Morning coffee outside on our Lanai or on the bench at the cliff edge is a great way to start your island adventures. We love to watch sunrises and sunsets from our Sea Lodge 'back yard', as well as sunsets at Hanalei Bay. Hanalei Bay (10-15 min drive) is the most spectacular beach with paddle boarding, jumping off the Pier, surfing, boogie boarding, beachcombing, and barbequing. For snorkeling we love the private Sea Lodge Beach (10 min walk) and Annini Beach (10-15 min drive). Fabulous bird watching at Kilauea Lighthouse (15 min drive). Rock Quarry Beach in Kilauea has great surfing, tide pools, and hiking up the river to amazing waterfalls. Our favorite restaurant is The Dolphin in Hanalei, where we pick up fresh sushi to take to the beach. In Princeville Center we like to get fish tacos, Thai food, ribs, fish, ice cream and more. It is totally worth the 30-45 min drive (across 7 one-lane bridges!) to explore North Shore caves, beachcomb, surf, and snorkel at Tunnels Beach in Haena and Ke'e Beach on the Na Pali coast. We love the food and the view at The Mediterranean Restaurant in Haena. If it's raining on the North Shore, simply drive to the South Shore - our favorite spots are Brenneke's Beach in Poipu, Waimea canyon (especially the Kalalau overlook), as well as Polihale Beach on the West Shore. We also loved tubing on former sugar cane irrigation canals, which have several amazing tunnels that go through the mountains. Make sure to get the free brochures at the airport, that list many activities and restaurants around the Island!
