Overview

About the property

Sandpiper Village 229B

Our lovely second, floor, one bedroom studio unit is spacious and comfortable. It has a separate entry and a private lanai. The studio has high vaulted ceilings with a plantation ceiling fan. (As with other units in our price range, we donʻt provide A/C.) The covered lanai has a view of the mountains and lush tropical plantings. Free parking in our unassigned lot is included with your rental.

Our studio is decorated with furniture in the Hawaiian and Asian whimsical style including a lovely rooster who doesn’t crow and wake you in the middle of the night! You’ll find a small teak table and chairs if you’d like to eat in the room. We offer you a comfortable, new King size bed and a sturdy loveseat with padded stool/coffee table for relaxing and comfort. We provide Oceanic Time-Warner cable and a flat screen TV, for relaxing after your days of exploring, shopping or enjoying the many beautiful beaches. The TV and router/modem sit on a red antique Chinese cabinet at the foot of the bed. We provide dedicated wireless Internet, along with 2 power strips to charge your various electronics.

The studio has a private bathroom with a roomy shower. The vanity area is separate from the bathroom, which is very convenient for after-meal wash ups. The floors in the bathroom areas are tiled.

If you prefer to relax on the private covered lanai you will discover a pair of comfortable chairs and a glass top dining table. You will also find your own 4.5 cubic foot mini refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, toaster,, electric fry pan, tableware and flatware. Most items are housed in an outdoor cabinet for easy access. Weʻve added a pull down, semi-transparent shade to filter the afternoon sun. Just make sure to raise it to enjoy the colors of sunset!

Sandpiper Village is nestled on several acres of paradise in Princeville. The complex has a large enclosed swimming pool area with a communal hot tubi. Plenty adjustable loungers are available for your comfort and convenience. You also are encouraged to barbeque in this area using the two Weber gas barbeque grills and provided utensils. Sandpiper Village is close to the Princeville shopping center and restaurants, jogging path and the lovely Makai golf course and tennis courts. Miles of beautiful beaches at Hanalei, Haena, Anini and many more locations are only a short drive away! I am just minutes away in the event you need my help.

Local streaming public radio station in Hanalei, KKCR 90.9, plays Hawaiian music and a vast variety of programming. Something for everyone!

UPDATE: Due to the increasing number of stains caused by AVOBENZONE and OXYBENZONE in skin care products, we are asking for your attention. Avobenzone bleaches colored linens and stains whites when water is added, so the damages sometimes arenʻt visible until the sheets are washed. Weʻre losing a large number of towels and bed linens. PLEASE make sure to thoroughly remove and rinse away skin products before you wipe with a towel and before you go to bed. Mahalo!

NOTE: As of February 2016, Expedia/VRBO/Home Away implemented a "Service Fee" which is paid directly to them. We do not charge, nor do we receive, any of this fee. There service fee is in addition to the annual fee vacation property owners pay for each unit listed on VRBO/HomeAway/Etc. The fee applies to all rentals rented through Expedia subsidiaries.

Why Marilyn VanOs, Agent for Carl VanOs chose Princeville

The location, well-maintained property, neighborhood atmosphere, pool/jacuzzi/grills in excellent condition are all reasons to love it.

Just minutes to everything that you want to visit on the North Shore. The drive down into the Hanalei Valley is stunning. Easy to get to Poi Day early Thursday mornings. An easy drive to Keʻe - "End of the Road." There are so many reasons!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a great time here in Kauai! It was great to have such a nicely equipped room - we loved the lanai (especially in the morning) and the snorkel and beach gear was a real plus! You have a very attractive and clean place, better than many hotel rooms for twice the price!

Now that weʻve celebrated our 15th anniversary in Kauai, weʻll have to start planning our 20th! Thanks for making a great vacation simple!

This studio is the perfect place to use as base camp while you explore the island and beaches. While Iʻm listing them, Iʻm going to give you pronunciations so those who donʻt know how can hear and pronounce Hawaiʻian with a better grasp.

I also want to stress this slogan, regarding water after a rain: 'If itʻs brown, turn around!'

Immediately after a big rain river and stream waters contain contaminants that are best avoided. If you see brown in the ocean, wait until itʻs had a chance to dilute. Youʻll avoid what many people think may be bad food or a touch of the flu. Thereʻs so much to do on the island that rescheduling your water plans to avoid contact wonʻt ruin your vacation. Right after a rain, mountain waterfalls are something you shouldnʻt miss. There are plenty of vantage points in and around Hanalei for taking keepsake photos that are only possible after a big rain on the mountains.

If youʻre a surfer, Hanalei Bay offers a variety of experiences. You can rent kayaks and SUPS to play on the Hanalei River, plus boards for the bay. If youʻre wanting to try surfing for the first time, there are many surf instructors in the area. Take your pick.

If you are experienced at hiking there is a challenging hike to Hanakapiʻai Falls (hah nah KAH pee eye) from Keʻe Beach (KAY ay) where highway 560 terminates. There is no cell phone coverage here. Youʻll want to start early to get a parking space. Be aware of weather reports before you head out on the trail. Make sure you have sturdy hiking shoes. This is NOT an asphalt walking path. It is the clay dirt trail that has been used for hundreds of years. It can be extremely slippery. The river becomes raging from rains falling upstream on the mountain, sometimes while itʻs sunny below. Having the rescue team air lift you out is probably not on your list of Kauaʻi vacation experiences. Nor is it fair for the people who must risk their lives to locate and extract stranded hikers. Be prepared to end your hike with red dirt stains on your shoes or boots. Take plenty of water. This is basic hiking with no frills. But well worth it. Just stay smart and be informed! And enjoy beautiful Napali Coast (na PAH lee).

Take a boat tour of the Napali Coast, starting from Port Allen on the opposite side of the island. There are caves and beaches that can only be accessed by water. Incredibly beautiful. You can book a tour in Princeville or Hanalei at one of the kiosks.

In the winter drive east and watch the whales from the lookout at Kealiʻa (kay uh LEE uh) on the edge of Kapaʻa.

It you are a new snorkeler, I recommend Lydgate Park beside the Wailua River. Itʻs less challenging than many other places, but the fish will dazzle you! Itʻs a great place to feel safe and practice up for Tunnels.

You may see seals sunning and molting on the rocks as well if you go between August and November. As with all wild creature, please give them plenty of space - for their safety and yours! They are a protected species and fines are stiff for getting too close.

Itʻs hard to describe all the places and things you can do on this island. The list is never ending. Just ask and Iʻll share information about your interests.

We have beach items that change constantly, so I wonʻt give a list. I ask that you rinse them off with the hose thatʻs located by the tree, across the sidewalk from the lanai, to clean off the sand and dirt that clings after a fun day out exploring. You may find a shower at the area youʻve visited.

Mahalo!

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

Its in good location and has extra towels, snorkel, boogee board provided etc. Kitchenette on balcony. Bed is fantastic. It took us ages to find as it has no street number. It was hot in the days bacause it is on top floor and roof had little or no insulation, which was ok as we were out most days enjoying the beautiful scenery.

Jederzeit wieder.

  • 4 of 5

Hallo,

für zwei Personen ist das Appartement optimal. Es ist sauber und alles vorhanden was man braucht. Die Lage ist für den Strandurlaub super. Man ist mit dem Auto in zehn Minuten in Hanalei, wo es mehrere schöne Strände gibt, auch zum schnorcheln. Schnorchelutensilien sind im Schrank. Kleinigkeiten konnte man kochen. Es war alles da was man braucht.

Einkaufen kann man auch in zehn Minuten zu Fuß. Um zum Waimea Canyon zu kommen, braucht man etwa zwei Stunden mit dem Auto.

Ansonsten können wir die Unterkunft wirklich weiter empfehlen.

Leider können wir aber auch keine 100 Prozent geben, da es doch etwas dunkel in der Wohnung war.

Danke für den tollen Aufenthalt und das alles so unkompliziert klappt.

Owner's Response: Babylon German to English translation as follows: Hello, for 2 persons, the apartment is optimal. It is clean and everything you need. The location is great for the beach holiday. It is with the car in ten minutes in Hanalei, where there are several beautiful beaches, also for snorkeling. Snorkel utensils are in the closet. Small things could be cooking. There was everything you needed. You can also shop in ten minutes on foot. In order to come to the Waimea Canyon, takes about two hours by car.

Would've been 5 stars had there been air conditioning, but overall was enjoyable.

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and well maintained. We only had difficulty finding parking a couple times during our week long stay. The overall atmosphere of the property was quiet. We would stay again.

no Privacy

  • 2 of 5

If it's peace quiet and privacy you are looking for, then this is not your condo ! while the interior was very nice and clean ( great shower ) it was very hard to enjoy a morning coffee or just hanging our on the lanai when we could hear EVERY single noise from the neighbors bathroom and to top it up we also got to "enjoy" the smell of their dryer since the neighbors dryer vent was located on OUR lanai. Although one side of the lanai had a screen, you are still on display to all the neighbors on the front. One more annoying thing: every time we left or returned to the condo, we not only had to climb over a bunch of dirty shoes strewn all over the small landing, our front door was constantly blocked by the neighbors screen door. This condo is more suited for a single traveler or just a very short stay. Tip: you might invest in a couple of proper beach towels since there are none provided.

Owner's Response: When someone stays with us, we ask that they be so kind as to let us know if you they have questions or are experiencing problems. We can address them to make your stay a pleasant one. I was not told there was a problem with the guests next door so I could cautioned them to be more considerate of their shoes, noise, and latching the screen door, so it didnʻt encroach on the entrance at the shared landing. A number of photos on our listing show the proximity of buildings on the three sides of the unit. They are clearly fish eye photos, which cause some distortion, but not so much that they give a false impression of the proximity of surrounding buildings. Sandpiper is a condo community with studio lanais facing each other. We are clearly not a secluded setting. There is a café table and chairs within the studio if you choose total privacy. If you want total seclusion, youʻll be disappointed here. We make the environment as pleasant as possible and provide a shade on the side nearest a neighbor. It shades the afternoon sun, with the added benefit of providing privacy. Guests post comments that they enjoy morning coffee on the lanai, looking at the mountains. We have never thought of totally blocking the view because it is so beautiful and ever changing. The dryer vents through the lanai wall but is redirected via a ridged exhaust pipe and doesnʻt vent directly into the lanai. Clearly, this party was not happy with their choice of accommodations. Itʻs very disappointing to us when a guest is dissatisfied. We make it our mission to provide a comfortable, well-maintained environment that makes your stay on Kauai a pleasant one. Please help us by letting us know when things arenʻt going as they should! We will intervene when other guestsʻ inconsiderate behavior keeps you from having the best experience we possibly can offer.
