This is a place that stepped out of a dream - a cottage by the sea on a faraway tropical island where native hawaiian geese flock to the door to say aloha and the ocean splashes playfully against the shore below. The view, which is hard to avoid, is a watercolor seascape brushed in shades of blue. It's a canvas painted in indigo with the dancing waters of the pacific fading into a sun-washed sky fringed with lacey white clouds.
This condo is airy with two large bedrooms and bathrooms. The open dining, living and kitchen space is fully equipped and includes high-speed wireless internet access. Amenities include a washer/dryer, outdoor pool and hot tub. An on-site restaurant is within walking distance.
This condo, in the Pali Ke Kua complex, is close to the St. Regis Hotel and the beaches that front the hotel. Hideaways beach, a 10-minute walk from Pali Ke Kua, is a small, secluded beach located at the foot of a stair-stepped trail that begins in the hotel's parking lot. Princeville features a shopping center, two golf courses, a walking path and a variety of restaurants.
Nearby activities include helicopter and horseback rides, hiking, many beaches and kayaking. The nearby towns of Hanalei and Kilauea offer interesting shopping and dining venues. Kilauea point national wildlife refuge is just outside Kilauea. Thousands of seabirds nest atop sheer sea cliffs at the refuge, which also includes a historic lighthouse.
