About the property

This beautiful home is situated at Nihilani at the Princeville Resort.

Our lovely Nihilani Home is situated ideally in the center of the complex, far away from the noise of Ka Haku Road and just steps to the swimming pool and barbecues. And good news, there is now wireless at the pool! This 2,200 SF, 2 story home has recently undergone a renovation, is beautifully decorated, and is deliciously air conditioned providing respite from those humid north shore days.

The moment you walk through the front door you feel at home. The Living room is inviting and comfortable, the kitchen is open with stainless appliances, a spacious Island with counter seating adjacent to the formal dining table, and the bedrooms upstairs are a delightful haven for you and your family.

There are 3 lanai's. The first floor lanai is directly off the living area, a perfect place to enjoy your cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening. The sound of the breeze through the palm trees is so relaxing and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. The other 2 lanais are private, one off the Master bedroom with a beautiful view of the pool, and the 2nd bedroom lanai has a street view and a just a glimpse of the ocean.

Downstairs is the living/dining area, with plenty of room for everyone, comfortable furniture, and a 60" Flat Screen Smart TV. It is the perfect setting to relax after a long day in the sun. The dining table seats 6 with additional seating at the spacious Island in the kitchen. The kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and is fully equipped with everything you would need to create a meal for you and your family. There is direct access to the two car garage and a half bath rounds out the downstairs.

Upstairs, the Master bedroom suite is very large with a king size bed, 48' flat screen Smart TV, and a relaxing window seat nook which can convert to another sleeping area. The ensuite bathroom has double sinks, a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. And of course don't forget that private lanai.

The 2nd bedroom suite consists of a queen size bed, direct access to the shared Jack & Jill bathroom and has it's own private lanai.

The third bedroom comes with a queen bed and shared access to the Jack & Jill Bathroom. All bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable, with spacious closets.

There is a fourth room upstairs, which contains a large twin/full bed with a trundle bed underneath and a 42' flat screen Smart TV.

A 2nd floor laundry room with full size washer and dryer is directly across from the den area.

This home comes complete with extra linens, towels, beach towels, hair dryer, iron & ironing board, in room safe, and of course free wireless high speed internet.

Right outside the front door you will find a beautiful pool with waterfall and 2 Jacuzzis.

Our single car garage is a feature unique to Nihilani and affords easy parking and access to the condo. Ours is stocked with Bicycles, Beach Chairs, and Beach Toys to enjoy durning your stay.

So book your stay and come home to the perfect relaxation destination, and enjoy the Aloha!

About Juli Dodd

We are native San Diegan's and love the Southern California beach lifestyle. We have been coming to Hawaii with our family for decades and when we first came to the North Shore of Kauai, we found our favorite slice of paradise! Being from San Diego, we knew the quality of Brookfield developments and Nihilani is no exception. We chose our homesite before it was built and feel it is the best in the development, away from the road noise and enjoying the best views. We love sharing the North Shore Aloha!

Juli Dodd purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Juli Dodd chose Princeville

If you are looking for a true home away from home, then you've found it. Beautifully furnished, comfortable and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing, inspiring vacation retreat.

What makes this townhome unique

Steps from the pool, Balmy breezes, swaying palms, a mile from the beach, golf and many other amenities. Not to mention, Nihilani is in an award winning location.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place is just wonderful. I didn't want to leave! There's a sense of peacefulness about the place. The bedrooms are comfortable and I was happy to find a washer & dryer upstairs. It's also great to have a garage. I loved the pool, my favorite thing to do was to sit under the waterfall. I call it my happy place. I am already making plans to visit again.

How beautiful is this place? On a scale of one to ten, it's an eleven. I would stay here again! The beds are comfortable, the place is clean and it has everything you could need for a beach vacation. I highly recommend this place.

Beautiful & Perfect for our Visit!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for our family visit to Kauai. Princeville is gorgeous & the home was clean, beautiful and perfect amount of space! Appreciate the washer & dryer, too!

We only had one snafu, the air conditioning broke right when we arrived. However, Juli & Andrew jumped right in to help and were very kind to do all they could. Unfortunately, we were unable to get it working but with the island breeze and a couple fans it was perfect!

All in all, loved this trip and appreciate having this wonderful home base for the family.

Wonderful accommodations, plenty of room for our group of 7!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with my family, it was perfect! We made great use of all the beach toys in the garage. We put the pool and BBQs to good use also. Your advertising on VRBO is an excellent representation of what to expect upon arrival. We will definitely book with you again next time we visit Kauai!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed three weeks and had an amazing time. Returning to this home after a day of Kauai adventures was always a pleasure. All the beds were very comfortable and the house was immaculately clean. It is stocked with all the things needed for an easy stay. The pool and hot tub are beautiful and we spent many hours enjoying them. Our most favorite thing was the location. Being able to ride bikes or walk to Queens Bath and several beaches was so much fun!! Our children are ages 16, 14, 10 and 3. The house fit everyone's needs. You can also walk to a playground, restaurants, grocery store, the beautiful St. Regis, etc. They provide plenty of snorkels, boogie boards, beach toys, etc. So glad we chose this as our Kauai home. It was perfect! Thank you!!

Great condo in Princeville

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as described in a great, very quiet location in Princeville! Owner was very responsive and good to work with. Condo had everything our family of 6 needed. Plenty of room, clean, and cheerful decor. Pool was very nice and we had it to ourselves a few times. A/C was a plus as were the extras (beach toys, bikes, etc)! Would recommend staying here.

Relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is my 3rd time staying at this lovely place. It is just the right size for a small group or large family to enjoy the Island. This time was my sister and I and a family of 4. My sister and I took the rooms with the Jack and Jill bathroom. The other couple stayed in the master and their girls stayed in the sleeping nook. All enjoyed our stay.

One of my favorite things to do is drink my coffee on the downstairs porch and watch all the birds that come to join you. Is so peaceful watching the birds and hearing the breeze through the plam trees.

I also enjoy the lava rock pool with the waterfall and the Jacuzzi. The pool area is directly across from the place and I went for a swim almost every day. Its so peaceful here.

The highlight of this trip this time was the ride through the sugar can tunnels on inter-tubes . It was both relaxing and exciting at the same time and we learned so many facts about Kauai.

There are so many things to do and see on Kauai, and it is such a relaxing place. It is a place I always like to keep returning to this little paradise and I am happy we can stay at this home away from home.
