Hale Makai ('Ocean Home' in Hawaiian) is an airy 2-story condo on the ocean in Princeville with amazing views from every room. It is located in Sea Lodge, a peaceful, serene North Shore oasis with manicured tropical grounds and private pool that are professionally maintained. Our condo has 2 bedrooms, each with its own private bath. The Master bedroom (Queen Bed) is on the main floor. A second bedroom (2 Twin Beds) is upstairs in the loft. See and hear the ocean as you drift off to sleep! The living room is outfitted with a flat screen TV, DVD player, and stereo radio. Spectacular views from the dining nook include the ocean and the famed mountain 'Bali Hai'. Vaulted ceilings, ceiling fans, and newly updated with tiger bamboo flooring throughout. A full size washer and dryer are in the condo (hidden behind an accordion door) for your convenience. Fully outfitted with linens, beach towels, kitchen utensils, table ware. Free Cable TV, WiFi and Phone (US & Canada only). The condo is a corner end unit in a 3-story building; you will be on the top two floors with no one above you or on one side of you. There is no elevator. Private parking is next to the condo for convenient unloading. Private ocean-view pool just steps away, as is the Sea Lodge outdoor BBQ and dining area. Snorkel at the private Sea Lodge Beach, just a 10 minute 'intermediate' hike down the SeaLodge bluff and along a lava rock path (hike at your own risk)! Hawaiian Nene geese are frequent visitors to Sea Lodge grounds. World-class golfing a mere 5 minutes by car. 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

Steve and Deb 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 North Shore

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.

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in Princeville and convenient for day trips to beautiful beaches and hiking. Space is large and clean. Kitchen is well stocked. Would definitely recommend if you're interested in staying on the north side of the island. Adrienne responded fast to our inquiry about the place and was great to work with!

Great condo~ Beautiful ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo for 9 days and it was perfect! The views were amazing. I'd definitely recommend the short hike down to sealodge beach.. gorgeous! As for the condo it had everything we needed for our stay. Loved having the boogie boards, cooler, beach chairs etc... to use so we didn't have to rent anything except snorkel gear. It was nice sleeping to the sound of the ocean every night and waking to the roosters in the morning:) although it rained there most of the time on our trip we just drove south and it was nice and sunny. Would definitely recommend this place! Also Hanalei bay is a short drive away and the cutest town! Our last night we ate at Tahiti Nui... great food and atmosphere! And some pretty good mai tais! All in all a great condo!

Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with our accommodations while visiting Kauai for the first time. the location was lovely. Just a hundred yards to watch the sunrise every morning.

Great to have all the comforts of home while traveling: washer/dryer, dishwasher, fully stocked kitchen, etc...

We will definitely remember our stay and make our way back sometime.

Quiet, clean-- beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights with our 2 teens and just loved it! This condo is in Princeville - a condo / vacation home community that is beautiful but densely developed. However, besides the local chickens, it was very quiet and serene. I was surprised that we rarely heard or saw other people during our stay. The condo is clean and well-furnished, just as pictured.

There is no air conditioning in this condo. I'm not sure if that is typical for other condos and homes in the area, but it might be a little frustrating if you are expecting refrigerated air. We came from a cool, dry climate so it seemed quite warm and humid especially in the loft, but not a big deal. I didn't mind putting up with a little humidity in order to hear the ocean out my window!

The SeaLodge Beach is well worth the hike and we were able to see humpback whales from the viewpoint just outside. Anini Beach, which has some of the best snorkeling on the island, is nearby too.

First time visitor tip: We booked a Nepali coast tour with a company that left out of Port Allen (over an hour away). It would have been so much more convenient to book a tour out of Hanalei!

I would stay at this condo again!

Excellent location and a good value

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Kauai. The condo is exactly as pictured. It had everything we could ask for to help make our stay enjoyable. A real plus for the kids was all the beach equipment. The boogie boarding at Hanalei bay is great. As others have mentioned; if you are light sleeper the roosters are sure to wake you at the crack of dawn but they are all over the island so it wouldn't matter where you stay. From the Sealodge complex one can be at some of the most beautiful beaches in the world within minutes. The ocean is rough in the winter, on the north end of the island, but even so there are several that are well protected by reefs. If you would like a nice adventure try the Okolehao Trail. It is just a few miles from the condo. If you are in shape and are willing to go beyond where most stop, you will be rewarded with some outstanding views. Well placed ropes make life easier as the trail becomes more narrow and more difficult. The Sealodge beach is a great place to snorkel when the tide is in and the weather is favorable.

Great little shops in each surrounding town. Don't overlook the farmer markets that rotate around. Good for fresh fruit, greens and unique soaps, lotions etc... Ask for a loyalty card at each of the stores you visit. Will save you a few bucks. If your flight arrives early enough it might be wise to stock up at Walmart or Costco, both of which are within a mile or two of the airport.

The island is a busy place. We found it best to start out early in the morning before traffic and crowds became an issue. Try to get off the main road and you will find some very neat areas.

Adrienne was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive to questions as I finalized plans. The Sealodge complex is by no means new but it is well taken care of. If you are looking for a place with all the latest and greatest this is probably not the one for you. If, like us, you are looking for a nice clean, safe location to rest, have family dinners and have a base to explore all that Kauai has to offer this is it. It was very quiet the entire 10 days we were there and the views cannot be beat. The ocean breeze kept us cool each night and the constantly changing climate was actually very enjoyable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay on the north shore and in this same unit again. I sure wish I would have had another week.

Last tip, don't miss the canyon on the south end. Leave early, you'll understand.

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!
