About the property

This beautiful home is part of Nihilani at Princeville Resort.

Our lovely Nihilani Home is situated perfectly in the center of the 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 and 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 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, a 55" 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 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.

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.

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

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.

Amazing every time!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in this property a handful of times now over the last few years. Typically it has just been the 4 of us, but this time my brother in law came with his family for a total of 8 of us.

My husband and I slept in the master room with our toddler sleeping in the niche in the master bedroom. My brother in law and his wife were in one of the other rooms, my son in the other and my 2 nieces in the "open" room at the top of the stairs since there is a trundle under the twin size bed. It was perfect for all of us!

We never felt like we were sitting on top of each other in this townhouse. There was plenty of room for everyone.

We utilized the cooler and beach chairs every day. The kitchen was well equipped to accommodate all of us and there were plenty of beach towels so we each had one each day. There are also a lot of sand toys and 2 boogie boards that helped keep my toddler entertained.

The kids loved coming home from a day at the beach and playing in the pool while we made dinner.

I can't recommend this unit enough. It comes well equipped with laundry detergent, dish soap and dishwasher pods as well as trash bags, toilet paper/paper towels and standard spices and condiments.

We are booked to come back in March!

Perfect Vacation Rental in Paridise - CLOSE to the pool!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented quite a few units from VRBO over the years and the combination of a dealing with a great owner (yes. . . there are owners that can ruin a beautiful rental and even put a damper on a vacation), great location, and a beautiful, well equipped, and maintained unit made this the best rental I have ever gotten from VRBO! It is very tastefully decorated, close to the pool, off the main road, and perfectly located in Princeville. The owners have bikes, outdoor chairs, and even some snorkel gear and boogie boards. We had a fairly large family group from Portugal, Florida and the Pacific Northwest that went to Kauai and we used this unit as the meeting place for cooking dinners and hanging out after spending time touring the island. Thank you for making this one of the best vacations ever and restoring my belief in VRBO!

An amazing family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this unit. It is a great layout with plenty of space (can easily accommodate two families), high quality finishing, is beautifully furnished, and has all the supplies and extras (pots and pans, soaps, towels, coolers, beach chairs, beach toys, bikes etc) you could want. The pool and hot tub is lovely and an oasis and was never busy. Our kids had so much fun playing there for hours. There is also a nice BBQ area with table and chairs.

In terms of the location, we loved the walking/running paths around the golf course, the easy walking distance to the Queens Bath, the super convenience of Foodland for one off items (although we did our big shop at Costco) and watching the sunset from the Cliffs. We worried about not staying directly on the beach but there are so many beaches (especially with small children in tow) in close proximity - in hindsight we liked that we ended up going to different beaches and adventuring more! We have travelled to Hawaii many times and have been to most of the islands and the low key lushness of Kauai and these accommodations have helped solidify this as our favorite trip location.

We hope to return in the near future!

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

An outstanding property!!! Each room was perfectly decorated and there are beach accessories to use. We were 7 people and there were ample space to eat together in the dining room. When we needed assistance, the owner and assistant was readily available.

We'll return with no hesitation.
