Overview

About the property

Custom-designed, 3 bedrooms+den, 3 baths, mountain views, shared pool and tennis

Whether you are traveling with your family, extended family, other couples, best friends or your sweetheart, Orchid Hale is an excellent choice of accommodation.

You will always remember the special time you spend here . . . the spacious elegance, the extravagant feeling of indulging yourself in the comforts and pleasures of this extraordinary home. Pamper yourself . . . you'll be glad you did!

The setting is Princeville on the lush north shore of the "Garden Island." The neighborhood is a small collection of custom homes that share a well maintained swimming pool and tennis court. The views are verdant gardens speckled with the colors of tropical flowers and exotic plants against a backdrop of majestic mountains formed millions of years ago.

This is a two-story home of 3200 square feet with a large great room, half-bathroom, kitchen and the master suite upstairs. The upstairs living room has air conditioning and the master suite also has air conditioning and its own TV. Downstairs there are two air-conditioned bedrooms, a large living/family room, a den/office and two bathrooms. So, there is plenty of room for everyone to gather together as well as space for anyone to spend quiet moments with a good book or other peaceful endeavor.

Your home away from home was totally renovated recently and has been designed and furnished with great attention to detail. The exquisite hardwood and marble floors as well as the granite counters in the kitchen and vanities in the bathrooms are both luxurious and practical.

Much thought has gone into the furnishings and over-the-top amenities throughout Orchid Hale; one excellent example is the generously equipped gourmet kitchen. In addition to the essentials like sauce and frying pans, baking dishes and other ovenware, cooking utensils and dishes, you will find an big assortment of small appliances such as a coffee grinder, panini grill, pressure cooker, and slow cooker, to name just a few. The chefs in your group will be delighted!

You may want to check out the Sunshine Markets (farmers' markets) that happen in a different town each week day. That's a great place to find fresh produce to include in your meal plans. And, if you would like to dine out during your stay, there is a nice variety of cafes and restaurants right in Princeville as well as in the neighboring town of Hanalei.

The furnished office downstairs has just what you need in case your visit is partly a working vacation: desk, scanner, large monitor, wireless printer and printer paper. The powerful wireless router is easy to access wherever you are in the house with whatever device you choose.

While you are working, the kids and others in your party can play badminton, croquet and volleyball in the spacious back yard. And indoors, there are board games, a Play Station 3 System with a few PS3 games, an assortment of DVDs you can play on the Blu-Ray/DVD and watch on the 73" TV in the downstairs family room or the 63" TV upstairs in the living room. You may even want to watch some of the movies that have been filmed on Kauai over the years.

Just diagonally across the street are the swimming pool and tennis court. Nearby is Makai Golf Club with its wide open spaces and nicely manicured fairways and greens. Even non-golfers can appreciate the ocean and mountain views along the course. Those who enjoy the game will want to challenge themselves on this recently renovated 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. There are many beautiful north shore beaches within a short drive of Orchid Hale. We strongly recommend swimming at beaches with a life guard.

Other activities nearby include kayaking, horseback riding, fishing, surfing, windsurfing, helicopter flightseeing tours, hiking, seasonal swimming, snorkeling and tropical botanical garden tours.

3 BR + den/office + sofabed in downstairs living/family room / 3-1/2 BA. Sleeps 6 - 8.

About Kauai Vacation Rentals

It all began with a vision. A desire to share the magical island of Kauai with the world. And, founder, Lucy Kawaihalau, has dedicated her life to that goal through Kauai Vacation Rentals. "In a vacation rental home or condo, you really feel like you're living here," reflects Lucy, "so bringing together home owners and guests to achieve the 'best fit' is only a part of our distinguished reputation. Our responsibilities are twofold. For our owners, we provide the best management and maintenance services so they can rest easy, knowing their homes are meticulously cared for, since they may be thousands of miles away from their investment. For our guests, we believe they should be treated like royalty." And, it is the respect for the guest that gained Kauai Vacation Rentals recognition throughout the world. A friendly team dedicated to serving the needs of guests, with attention to all the details, makes it all possible. "A vacation to Kauai is so meaningful," adds Lucy. "For some, it may be the trip of a lifetime. For others, it may be a yearly event. This is a splendid place to relax. Our guests are 'energized' when they go home. That's what we mean when we say, 'magical Kauai.' " This genuine business model embodies the Hawaiian word, 'Aloha,' and it has gained much recognition within the industry and business venues, including numerous awards. Many glowing articles have been written, from Kauai Business & Real Estate Magazine, Hawaii Business, and internationally distributed Travel & Leisure Magazine to famed Fortune Magazine. In fact, Lucy Kawaihalau was personally honored with coveted awards from the Small Business Administration and Kauai Chamber of Commerce for her successful business achievements. Lucy concludes, "I am deeply grateful for our recognition and awards. Yet, it is the phone call, with heartfelt and glowing remarks about a visit to Kauai from a satisfied guest that brings us great joy. Therein lies our greatest achievement."

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our vacation to Kauai. This home was everything we hoped it would be. We probably would have tried to stay even longer if it hadn’t already been rented.... Plenty of room for 2 families, beautiful furnishings and comfortable beds. No need to bring that pillow from home 😊�. Big back yard that the kids played whiffle ball in each night. AC worked fantastic which in the summer you definitely need as we had very little trade wins in the North Shore area while we were there. It is hot and humid and rains every day at some point in this region so yes you need AC. I would stay here as opposed to other areas of the island as it’s so lush and tropical.The property management company was so helpful with tips on places to go and how to access them in the North Shore area as well. The home is well stocked with extras such as beach chairs, coolers, family games, spices for cooking and every cooking gadget you could imagine needing. Everything was labeled making putting things back so much easier. We had gorgeous views of the mountains and walked to beaches like Hide Aways for snorkeling and Queens Bath for the experience of a lifetime.Each were only a half mile away and parking is minimal, making the ability to walk to each perfect! Thank you for sharing your home with us, it is beautiful.

Well-equipped beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay over Thanksgiving. The hosts have put a lot of thought into making the stay a great experience -- thorough labeling, a fantastically-stocked kitchen, and lawn games are just a few of the touches we appreciated. The garden is lovely and the kitchen happily accommodated many Thanksgiving chefs at once!

Gorgeous, gigantic, great!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this beautifully appointed home--and it's really a home. Everything from a FULLY-equipped kitchen to sports equipment to a light-up makeup mirror in the master. Partial view of Bali Hai, huge back yard, and lovely landscaping. The two-car garage is even immaculate, which tells me the owners truly care about maintenance. All the appliances are top-of-the-line, fully functional and brand-new. We'll be back next year!

Really a special place

  • 5 of 5

So many little special touches elevate this place and the Property Manager above the rest. The home itself is spectacular and spacious. It's beautifully decorated and furnished with everything you need and more. Clearly someone loves their home. One example of the special touches - there was a box of different sized water shoes in the garage for guest use...which came in very handy when I forgot mine. We had a very memorable time here with our two girls celebrating our 30th.

Beautiful Home with Magnificent View of Na Pali Mountain Range

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home with a magnificent view of the Na Pali mountain range. The house is very comfortable with all amenities including a gourmet kitchen. The bedrooms and furniture is very comfortable. Princeville is a wonderful spot as you are near beaches, a nature preserve and the town of Hanalei. We look forward to returning to Kauai and hope that this home will be available. The landscaped gardens are also very beautiful.
