About Marilyn VanOs, Agent for Carl VanOs

Carl is the happy owner of the condo. Kauai has been his favorite Hawaiian destination for over 20 years and heʻs here as often as possible! He divides his time between San Francisco, northern Washington, and Princeville. Carl has spent the years since acquiring the property improving the condo and studio. His commitment to offering beautiful and well-maintained lodgings has turned them into the lovingy upgraded vacation destinations they are today.

Marilyn, his sister, moved to Kauai in 2013. Marilyn has been property manager since January, 2015, drawing on her innkeeping experience. She lives nearby, also in Princeville, so sheʻs readily available if needed.

Marilyn VanOs, Agent for Carl VanOs purchased this condo in 2012

Why Marilyn VanOs, Agent for Carl VanOs chose Princeville

After making many visits to Kauai, and years of property searching, Carl was fortunate to become the proud owner of a condo and studio in Princeville, North Shore, Kauai County, State of Hawaii. Each of these location designations would make 229 a special place. All of them compound to make it a Paradise!

Kauaiʻs North Shore is often described as the most beautiful place on earth. Itʻs impossible to describe. You really must come over and experience it first hand. We have a place waiting to welcome you!

What makes this condo unique

The spiral staircase. Itʻs reminds us of the spectacular Kilauea Lighthouse! The staircase in the condo is simply a fun way to get to the loft. Itʻs the first thing you see when you walk in the front door.

The pool and grill area are available to our guests and we strongly encourage you to use them. Everything there is yours to enjoy!

Beautiful, cozy, fully-featured and clean remodeled unit with great upgrades and features!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the wonderful Sandpiper village in early May, and were very happy with the condition of the unit and everything that was included. This unit is located on the second floor of a fourplex building (most if not all the buildings are the same way) and I can tell this is the best unit of the building because it is on top, which affords it the wonderful loft and vaulted ceilings which give the space an even bigger feel, and great character. It is also situated better than the adjoining second story unit (which is also owned by the same owner I believe and they can be rented together and turned into a larger unit via the shared door) that doesn't have a loft or as nice of a view. The attached lanai, which has great tile flooring and a good view of the water, was spacious and comfortable. The countertop surfaces are all upgraded and the unit features stainless steel appliances and stacked Samsung washer/dryer. There's room for the whole family and more. There are two king beds, one in the master and one in the loft, along with an additional (queen?) pullout bed in the sofa if needed, so this place can sleep 6 with relative ease. The loft area has a private bathroom with shower and is also remodeled and very nice. We would definitely stay here again without hesitation. A+

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was great. The condo is very clean and well kept and so is the whole complex. Its very close to Hanalei which we fell in love with, close to Anini beach, and very close to Queens bath. You do need a vehicle to get around if you stay here but we didn't mind, it was super fun driving around the island. The host was great and very accommodating and answered texts and calls immediately. We would definitely go back and stay!

Well furnished apartment

  • 3 of 5

This lovely 2nd floor apartment is very nice and well furnished. The kitchen had all the dishes, knives, pots and pans we could need during our stay. The furniture was in good condition. There was snorkel equipment and beach towels in the closet. The guide book on Kaua'i was especially helpful. And it is conveniently located near north shore activities.

One minor problem was that we smelled cigarette smoke several times during our first two days there. We think it was coming from the apartment below ours, which has a different owner. Anyway, it stopped and we enjoyed the rest of our time. I would give the place 4 stars but for this issue.

Very clean and well appointed condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay, very clean with brand new appliances and upgraded everything. Had small cooler and pool stuff. Extra sunblock I'm assuming left from other guests. Was on the top floor which was nice and had the two kings and two full bathrooms which was nice with a teenager. Only negative is being Hawaii windows are always open and the people below were smokers so the living room often smelled slightly of cigarette smoke. Nice neighborhood for walking or running in the mornings and a store 5 minutes away. Really nice pool area with hot tub and two bbq's. Well maintained maniquired grounds. I would go back and recommend and I am pretty picky.
