Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy the beautiful North Shore of Kauai at our lovely Alii Kai I Condominium.

It is a ground floor, corner unit sitting on a bluff overlooking the magnificent Pacific Ocean. In the winter be mesmerized by 15 to 25 foot waves. Whales cavorting in the ocean and albatrosses gliding pass your windows. In the summer, enjoy snorkeling below the condominium. Watch the porpoises (dolphins) playing in the ocean and the turtles cavorting in the waves. Many times you will find a monk seal resting on the lava below the condo. There is a short trail which will take you down to the ocean.

We have internet and WiFi for your convenience. We also have a varied library with many Hawaiiana books for your enjoyment plus games, puzzles, and all the beach equipment you might need. A backpack is ready to go for a hike.

This is a peaceful, quiet Hawaiian-style condominium with the rooms looking out onto the ocean and the cool tradewinds wafting through the unit. The sunrises can be spectacular. A wonderful way to relax! While dining at the table, you can watch for the Tropic Birds that are looking for their meal out in the ocean.

Why The Owner chose North Shore

We are very private, quiet, peaceful with an unbelievable view and absolutely nothing to mar that view. YOU ARE THERE!!! Bottom unit with no stairs to climb nor do you look at the neighbor's door as you leave your wonderful 'home'. You see the fabulous Pacific Ocean as you leave the condo and as you walk thru our Slice of Paradise. You see and hear the ocean from every room. We are modern and comfortable.

What makes this condo unique

It is all there before you so you never want to leave!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I travel to Kauai nearly every year. I've stayed on the north, east, south and west sides and have found no place that even compares to this unit at Alii Kai. In my opinion, it is the best value, best view and best location on the island. It is always super clean and welcomng when I first walk in the door. Often there is a freshly baked loaf of fruit bread or a basket of home grown avocados waiting when I get there. There are ocean views from every window and it is so quiet you will think no one else is within miles. It is high on the edge of a bluff so you can sit on the lanai and watch an albatross soar by or watch whales in season. You can see for miles. There are many nice eating places in an easy distance or you can cook in with the fully equipped kitchen. The most beautiful beaches on the island are minutes away. The closets are stocked with things you might want to use such as beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment etc. There is a nice little library of books to choose from. No amenity has been forgotten. I would recommend this unit to anyone, young or old. The beds are very comfortable. It you give it a try, you'll go back time and time again.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

How anyone would rate this condo less than 5 stars is a mystery to me. It's clean, well equipped with everything needed for your stay, and is run by a private owner who cares rather than a management company. With the million dollar views this will be the place we will return to when visiting Kauai. Thanks for everything Evelyn!

Amazing views await you at this slice of paradise!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and another couple stayed in Evelyn's condo for 6 nights. The pictures only hint at the magnificent views! We had everything we could possibly need and communication before and during our stay was prompt and helpful. Evelyn is an amazing host!

If you are travelling as two adult couples, I would recommend figuring out the room assignments before arrival, though. The master bedroom is about 3 times larger than the second bedroom (and we lost the coin toss), so there could be some disappointment. Both rooms have incredible views of the ocean.

As well, it seems that the rugged path to the ocean below is quite popular (and the path starts pretty much outside the front door). We saw many people parking in the Alii Kai lot just to go to this "beach". Because there is no a/c, the windows were always open (to get the amazing cross-breeze), but this meant there was a lot of conversation happening right outside the unit as people descended/ascended or conversed at the top of the hill. This only happened during the day, but if you're expecting a really quiet place for an afternoon rest, there may be people interrupting this. It was perfectly quiet in the evenings and overnight!

We were able to visit all coasts from this location (the longest drive being to Waimea Canyon at about 2 hours) and really enjoyed the North Shore. There were great places to eat in Hanalei, and we really enjoyed the proximity to the Napali Coast (as day hikers) and to the amazing north shore beaches (highly recommend snorkelling at Tunnels and Anini for the shady beach and to swim with sea turtles). If we were to visit Kauai again, we would definitely stay in the north again, and would not hesitate to return to Evelyn's "Slice of Paradise"!

Gorgeous location, well appointed condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying in a condo in Kauai and this was by far the best in terms of location and view. Amazing to sit on the balcony, listen to the ocean below and watch sunrises and sunsets. The kitchen is amazingly well equipped. Perfect for a group of 4, we were 5 and the living room sofa was not a very comfortable bed to sleep on. Evelyn was very responsive to all my inquiries.

Profound Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

A slice of paradise indeed. Experienced the most amazing trade-winds and ocean front views of the sunrise and sunset which served as a reminder that everyday is a blessing. The place is as good as advertised in terms of great location, cleanliness, and resort amenities. We enjoyed adventures at the farmers market in Hanalei, zip line in Princeville, hiking along Na Pali Coast and Waimea Canyon, and nearby beach spots at turtle cove, queens bath, and Regis hotel. Evelyn provides the best customer service, very responsive and keeps the place on point. So thank you for a wonderful memorable journey and for sharing a slice of paradise.

Exceeded our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Evelyn's condo is truly magnificent! I did a lot of research on VRBO locations on Kauai before picking Evelyn's place and I'm glad I did. It is immaculate, spacious, has a washer/dryer, had everything we needed in the kitchen AND the views are breathtaking. If you are looking for a place that will rejuvenate your soul, this is the place. As one reviewer noted, the pictures do not do justice to the actual views. Every room in the unit has an ocean view. Being a corner unit on a bluff, we literally could watch the sunrise and sunset every day (although as our vacation progressed it got harder each day to get up in time to see the sunrise :-) . The only caveat is that, as part of a resort community, it does require a car to get to nearby shops in Princeville or to swimming beaches. Regardless, I would definitely come back when traveling to Kauai again. Evelyn was very responsive to any of our pre-visit email inquiries, and on the day of our arrival she called to make sure everything was okay and to our satisfaction. There is a reason why her VRBO unit is booked so far in advance! Thank you Evelyn for making our experience on Kauai so welcoming!

Great place to rest and play.

  • 4 of 5

We found the place clean and comfortable. It was conveniently located and well supplied. Amenities were functional. It was simply a nice, bright airy place. There were a lot of little things that made the stay nicer. The manager was helpful, cooperative and available when we needed her. One little warning is that the "path" to the ocean was pretty tough to climb. We preferred to access beaches by driving instead.
