About Bill Hallmark
Our family has been visiting Kauai for over 40 years. In 2013, we finally decided to switch from timeshares and rentals to purchase our own condo. Our condo on Kauai is the place we come to unwind from our sometimes busy lives on the mainland. We find slowing down to Hawaiian time while we enjoy all the activities the island has to offer to be refreshing and rejuvenating. We hope you will enjoy your stay, taking advantage of your favorite activities on the island whether it is surfing, golfing, hiking, snorkeling or just relaxing and enjoying the view. We hope that when you have to return home, you will feel revitalized and you'll want to come back. Mahalo!
Bill Hallmark purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Bill Hallmark chose Princeville
Although we didn't own property on Kauai until 2013, it has been our second home for a long time. On the island, our routine has usually been to get up in the morning and go somewhere: to the beach, to the golf course, to the spa, on a walk or a hike, to a botanical garden, or exploring somewhere else. When we have had enough sun or enough activity for the day, we return to the condo, sit on our lanai and enjoy the view often with a book and/or a tropical drink. Our Kamahana condo is perfect for this lifestyle. It is close to the most beautiful places on Kauai; it's on the Makai golf course; it's quiet; you can hike down Sea Lodge or Anini beaches; and it has a spectacular view from sunrise over the ocean to the warm glow of the setting sun on the Kilauea lighthouse.

Nice location and roomy condo
Dated but good. Only suggestion:it is evident that the bathroom floors have not been washed for some time. Furnishings are dated but acceptable.
Plenty of room and nice location
Condo on the golf course
Overall we had a lovely visit. Great Princeville location. The condo overlooks the golf course (14th hole tee right in front of condo) and you do get a view of the ocean, from the golf course facing northeast. We relaxed in the condo which is very clean. It does need updating. The bathroom faucets and main bedroom mirror need to be replaced. It is quite comfortable if not fancy. We enjoyed having our own place. I would not shop at the grocery store in Princeville (very expensive) but get your groceries near the Safeway further south on the main route (20 min away from Princeville). The condo did have beach chairs, a few beach towels, toilet paper, a roll of paper towels and enough dishwasher detergent for our stay. The beds were very comfortable. Bring your own DVDs. No air conditioning but one large fan we put in our bedroom. We kept the windows and patio door open at night for a breeze. Everything in the kitchen worked well. As I said, not a fancy condo but a comfortable one. The community pool is small but really not many people were there so we always get a lounge chair. Lounge chairs are limited at the pool. They should get a few more. Everyone we talked to at the complex were very nice. We came the week after the big Kauai storm so the complex was not crowded. We would definitely rent this condo again.
The condo was lovely and peaceful
Although we had the misfortune of being in Kauai during the recent superstorm, the condo was watertight and was a refuge where we could stay dry and comfortable while looking out over the golf course and the ocean. We didn't get to see the mountains all that much, due to the cloudiness, but when we did, they were spectacular. The thunder and lightning during the night of the storm were intense, but we felt safe and were able to sleep through most of it.
We found the condo to be very pleasant, with a good layout and just the right amount of space. Unlike another reviewer, we thought the furniture was quite comfortable, and we could see the view sitting on the couch (I think they were bothered by the railing on the lanai being partly in the way, but really--you have to have a railing on the second floor--and we didn't feel it interfered with the view much at all). And we spent a lot of time there because of the rain, enjoying sitting there watching the scores of nene, and several pairs of albatross doing a mating dance out on the golf course.
The management was quick and responsive in addressing a couple of small issues we had at the beginning of our stay. They were also very helpful in arranging an early arrival, since our flight landed early in the morning. We were sleep deprived and it was great to be able to take a nap that afternoon.
As others have noted, the bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable, as were the pillows. The condo was well stocked, with good pots and pans (not old funky ones) and very nice dishes and glassware. There were starter supplies for things like paper goods, dishwashing detergent, and cleaning supplies. We were there for nine days and these supplies were sufficient for our whole stay. The closets had all kinds of beach and snorkeling gear, and anything else you might need, including extra blankets, a laundry basket, stepstool, ironing board, etc. The linens were really nice, as well.
We would absolutely stay here again.
The view from the lanai of this condo was lovely, and one of the few things it had going for it (note that you have to stand to see it, won't be able to while sitting on the uncomfortable furniture). Another plus - the bed in the master bedroom was comfortable. And the beach supplies (really nice beach chairs, towels, snorkel supplies) were great.
Cons - This unit is badly in need of a deep cleaning and updating. As we stayed for 2 months, I got to see up close how superficial the cleaning was. I don't think the oven has ever been cleaned, nor the remote for the tv, or the vent fan in the 2nd bath. Most of the shades had either water stains or mildew/mold on them. The screen on the patio door had come out of the seam (as had one of the screens in the master bedroom) and would not slide due to the fact that it was missing the rollers, and the patio door was very difficult to open and close. The smoke detector had no batteries, and was so old it had yellowed, I doubt it would work if it did. The washing machine periodically leaked water. We contacted the management company about some of this, and I have to say they responded very quickly.
Also, the kitchen knives were so dull, we went & bought our own sharpener. Alas, it broke. A slow cooker would have been greatly appreciated. I also had to buy my own cleaning supplies, because there were none. The living room furniture was uncomfortable.
The ratchet on the shade in the 2nd bedroom was broken, and one of the screens was missing. There were weird circle stains on the master bathroom mirror, faucets in the bathrooms leak, and the grout was dirty.
I've stayed at a number of VRBO's, either my rental or others, and they've all been good. This was not.
Comfortable condo in a great location.
We just finished a stay at this condo and really enjoyed it. We're a family of four with two teenage boys and so the two rooms/two bathrooms afforded us all space and privacy. The condo is really comfortable with nice touches--including quality dishes, nice pots and pans, a nice coffee grinder, and new cutting boards. It has also has salt and pepper and some basic cooking items. We found the beds to be comfortable--especially the bed in the master bedroom. My husband has neck and back problems and slept really well here. The condo has no air conditioning but the trade winds are really comfortable and with the fans and skillful use of shades during the sunny parts of the day, the condo stays cool. The condo has a spectacular view of the ocean and sunrises, and was really quiet. The only thing that will wake you up in the morning is the sound of a rooster or a bird. The condo was also nicely located close to shopping and beaches and a running trail. We quickly felt at home and will definitely stay here again.
It's located in a very beautiful place, perfect for running trails, and only a short drive to town
Generally the stay was very pleasant and relaxing. The only problem is the heavy door tends to slam shut if not careful. Besides that, we made full use of the amenities provided, were very thankful for the beach towels besides the regular towels, and couldn't be more happy with our experience. Quite roomy and has a great view looking out. Though we did not sit on the balcony, mainly due to rainstorms, it was still lovely to look outside and see the ocean and the vast greenness of the place. Thank you so much for everything provided here. We'll be sure to come back, once money and work allows it!
