Our multi-story tropical retreat features a light filled living room/dining area with vaulted ceiling, fully appointed kitchen, furnished lanai, king size beds and en suite bathrooms. This updated condo has been a short term rental for over 30 years! Weʻve spent the past 5 years improving it, for your comfort and pleasure.

In the living and sleeping areas plantation fans enhance the soothing trade winds. Spiral stairs take you to the loft. The en suite loft offers a comfortable king bed and a rooftop view of the ocean. Both ceiling fan and cross ventilation windows magnify our intoxicating tropical breezes.

The condo is decorated in the Tropical/Asian style accessorized with Hawaiian print fabrics. The sleeper sofa has a Queen size innerspring mattress. There are is a flat screen cable TV, along with DVD player. In addition, we offer free WiFi from Spectrum for your electronics. The dining area is furnished with a glass topped table and four armchairs. Youʻll also find a roomy table for 6 on the lanai. Itʻs the perfect place to enjoy breakfast.

The kitchen features full size appliances, including a dishwasher, 5 burner stove, French door refrigerator and microwave with temperature probe. Small appliances include a toaster, coffee grinder with drip coffeemaker, and a blender. You will have all the dishes, glassware, flatware and other kitchen cooking supplies you require to prepare meals. For added convenience we also provide large capacity LG stacked washer and dryer, plus an iron and full size ironing board.

Our spacious lanai offers views of lush tropical plantings and the beautifully maintained Princeville neighborhood framed by the Pacific Ocean! Come and enjoy the famous, spectacular sunsets of Kauai! You can eat all your meals on the lanai with a distant view of the ocean. We also provide a love seat and padded bench along with a glass topped side table, 2 matching arm chairs, and floor lamp. It's the perfect place to put up your feet and sip a tropical drink after a day of exploring, shopping or enjoying the many beautiful area beaches!

The airy Master suite contains a King size bed with fresh linens and an ever-changing bed cover. For entertainment we offer a flat screen cable TV and free internet.

The en suite Master bathroom features a custom built, large tile bathtub/shower combination suitable for sharing.

We supply starter paper items, laundry and dish soaps, shower and hair supplies. Youʻll also find spices and starter Hawaiian coffee.

Like the majority of Kauai vacation rentals, we donʻt offer A/C. Trade winds and fans are standard cooling systems. We can usually count on cooling at night to make sleeping very comfortable. We supply blankets and additional fans for extreme temperatures.

Sandpiper Village is nestled on several acres of paradise in Princeville. The grounds are beautifully maintained with lush, established tropical plantings. You may recognize our sign from the George Clooney movie, “The Descendents.” The complex has a large enclosed pool area with a hot tub. Feel free to barbeque in this area using the available, well-maintained Weber gas grills. You will also find tables and chairs and plenty of comfortable loungers surrounding the pool.

We do not reserve without payment. Please be aware that we book with the first person who makes a firm commitment by paying!

Deposit UPDATE: Due to the excessive number of stains caused by AVOBENZONE and OXYBENZONE, in ALL sunscreen sold at Costco and local stores, and in some skin care products, we are warning in advance that we will charge for stained/bleached linens. Deposit will not be returned if we find sand in any appliances! Shake it out, wipe and rinse it off in the parking lot or beach shower, before you enter the condo!


For those parties larger than 5, we offer the adjoining "lock out" unit for a combined rental. (Think adjoining hotel rooms.) This works great for a group or if you desire more privacy in a small group. You gain another full bathroom and lanai with kitchenette, as well a roomy sleeping area with King bed and TV. Youʻll have a total of 3 king beds plus a queen sleeper sofa with an incredibly comfortable innerspring mattress. Please see VRBO listing #619266 to see the adjoining unit.

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!

Perfect, had every amenity you could need

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I needed an affordable place to stay while we were in town for a wedding reception. Lo and behold, Marilyn’s place popped up! It was spacious and comfortable. And Marilyn was very quick to respond when I had a question about our reservation after the recent rains and flooding hit that side. If we had more time, we would’ve loved just barbecuing and enjoying the view from the patio! That’ll have to be for our next trip, I suppose :)

Owner's Response: Robyn and her guests left the condo in excellent condition! I expected stained washcloths and chaos from a party of women attending a wedding, but was delighted to find the place, and laundry, in such clean and orderly condition. Iʻd be very happy if Robyn returned!

Wonderful Condo in Princeville

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for our lovely stay. This condo is comfortable and clean with a kitchen stocked with everything you need, from spices to pots and pans. There's a pool, jacuzzi and BBQ on site and is located close to the Princeville Shopping Center. Marilyn, our host, was super sweet and accommodating which made our stay even better. I highly recommend staying here while on the North Shore.

Lovely location

  • 4 of 5

It’s a little tricky to find the condo after you found the parking spot, but once you’re there, everything is wonderful. No A/C isn’t desirable, but it’s tolerable with fans and open windows.

Owner's Response: I include the location on two separate overhead photos in our listing. Iʻm sorry you had trouble finding the studio!
