We stayed at Pali Ke Kua for 5 nights and it was all we expected it to be. The location is amazing, the neighborhood is calm and clean, the condo is so nice, modern and well appointed.
We loved everything minutes of our visit.
The condo was clean, well stocked and in a great location. I travelled with my wife, 3 year old daughter and mother in law. We all loved it. Would definitely go back!
The kitchen is well stocked, plenty of cutlery plates, glasses, etc. The only things missing were a few extra mugs (only 4), and a kettle for boiling water - we used a pot. There's a blender that not listed, so you can make fresh fruit smoothies with your fresh fruit from one of the many farmers markets on the island.
In the master bath, there's a closet that has extra blankets, pillows and most importantly beach gear - x2 backpack-style beach chairs, a beach bag, beach toys, x2 snorkel masks (one is pretty small) and x1 snorkel (weird, there's just one). There were 4 beach towels too, as well as plenty of bath towels, hand towels and face clothes.
I can't speak to the bed in the loft, but the bed in the master was very comfortable.
The unit doesn't have AC, but there are TONS of windows which allows for a nice breeze and each area has a ceiling fan. We were never too hot, but we didn't spend much time in the condo when it was sunny and hot.
The master bath has been recently updated which was nice. The upstairs loft bath is a little outdated, but still nice.
The lanai overlooks green space, part of the golf course and the ocean. There's an electric BBQ which was awesome! During the night, we could hear whales from the lanai, and the next day we saw some out in the distance. The condo faces NE so you get sunrise rather than sunset, but at sunset we walked to a spot around the corner which was spectacular.
We had dinner at Hideaways Pizza Pub one night after a long day at the beach when we were too lazy to cook. It was decent, don't expect too much - I don't think it's the place to order the $40 tuna entree, we kept it simple - pizza and salad.
The restaurant overlooks the pool and hot tub - which we only used once - and was nice enough.
Checking in and out was easy, memorize the lockbox code, and keep the key in there all the time! Oceanfront Realty who manage the property communicated with me regularly and provided email updates - like when the Hanalei bridge was flooded one morning!
My only complaints would be that the kitchen cabinets were well worn, some cupboards don't close fully, and all the hardware was loose. Another thing to note, is that when the Hideaways Pizza Pub closes (at 10pm I think), you can hear the staff closing up and leaving if the windows are open.
Beautiful, clean condo. Wonderful location. Would definitely recommend to others! Thanks for a great stay.
Beautiful location on the bluff in Princeville. There are other units with better ocean views especially those closer towards the St Regis hotel side of the development. This unit was nice, could use some cleaning and updating. It was very bare bones, not much provided for your stay. The management company Oceanfront Realty was very impersonal and did not send any instructions for finding the unit, very difficult in the rain at night. They took our payment, but did not contact us when they did not receive the signed contracts we mailed and just did not send the code to access the condo. They have an internet app that you have to access on the day you arrive. Of course you are traveling and when you arrive and there is no access code, you are stuck, had to talk them into giving us the access over the phone. They charge a processing fee, a reservation fee and cleaning fee on top of the percentage they collect from the owner for the rental. Very poor service and attention to detail, great business model, take the money and put out no effort whatsoever. Would advise others to try to deal with the owners of units directly if possible. Kauai is very beautiful and wonderful place to visit, it has also gotten very expensive, spend the time to find a great place to stay, and I suggest avoiding management companies
Very clean updated condo with comfortable beds. The unit cooled off nicely at night (in October) with the ocean breeze and open widows. The kitchen was also spacious and well equipped. You can walk to two different and incredible beaches (Hideaways and Pali Ke Kua) from the property (steep walk down a hill as the condo is located on a bluff)
Princeville is a great place to stay for great beaches, relaxation and hiking.
Thank you very much for a great vacation.
We had an excellent time there, highly recommendable!
