About the property

Like The Nicest Hotels, The Oasis Has A Magical Indoor/outdoor Hawaiian Vibe

Welcome to the North Shore Oasis!

Like the nicest hotels, the Oasis has a magical indoor/outdoor Hawaiian vibe. The open-air home let's you live among the tropical breeze. For your comfort, all three bedrooms have A/C.

The Oasis is located on the 11th green of the Makai Golf Course and it is built around a private tropical waterfall garden. This elegant and peaceful 3 bedroom home has two master suites, a third bedroom upstairs (and off the south master suite), 2.5 bathrooms, plus an outdoor shower and a private hot tub. The Oasis has an unobstructed view down the fairway towards Bali Hai and magnificent year-round sunsets.

We take great pride in the Oasis and work to provide everything we can think of to make your stay enjoyable. You can travel light and make the most of your stay.

Examples of some Oasis amenities:

- The well-organized garage has four cruiser bikes, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach gear, coolers, and detailed air photo maps to help you explore the north shore. We even keep 'blue ice' in the freezer and bottle openers attached to each cooler.

- Beach gear for everyone. Big, plush beach towels, reclining chairs, and sand umbrellas

- Wi-Fi and home theater system with a DVD collection featuring many of the movies filmed on Kauai

- Basic essentials like laundry detergent, cooking supplies, zip-lock bags, etc. for your convenience

The Oasis is located on the North Shore in the resort community of Princeville. It is a great home base for world class golfing, access to beaches (Hanalei, Tunnels, Anini, Hideaways, plus more!), and adventure on the Garden Isle. We are located on walking paths along the Princeville golf course fairways. You can follow these paths to the grocery store, restaurants, shops, and nearby beaches. Great tropical trails lead you from the Princeville bluff down to secluded and scenic beaches.

We play by the rules:

About Doug Hillman Oasis

Doug and Lori split their time between Seattle and Kauai. These geologists love the outdoors and share a passion for the tropical gardens on Kauai's lush north shore.

Doug Hillman Oasis purchased this house in 2014

Why Doug Hillman Oasis chose North Shore

We walked into the Oasis and immediately fell for the place. We love the indoor/outdoor feel and the way that the house draws us into the beauty of Kauai's north shore.

Paradise in Princeville

  • 5 of 5

The moment we opened the garage and saw the snorkels, boogey boards, bikes, kayak, etc. it was hard to not book it to the beach and enjoy all of the activities! Once did open the door to the house though we were in awe of how beautiful it was. It also is in the perfect location, walking distance to Princeville center where there is a grocery store, coffee, shops and we loved riding bikes to local beaches and restaurants. The town of Hanalei is just a short drive away as well. We recommend the oasis to all!

Beautiful, unique house

  • 5 of 5

It's an incredible house with everything you could possibly need on a beach vacation. It's immaculate, beautifully decorated with a koi pond to boot. We loved it and highly recommend it. I would definitely return.

WOW !!! Just... WOW !!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this wonderful Villa Oasis. We only stayed three nights, but everyone wished we had stayed longer.

As we all walked in one by one...the reaction was WOW !!! This place is amazing. Everyone also noticed you thought of everything Chairs coolers, snorkels, mask, surf boards, boogie boards, plenty of beach towels, maps, bikes for everyone, kids toys for the beach, and everything was so neatly organized made the guys so jealous with how neat your garage was.

This was in a very quiet neighborhood, so peaceful, The mornings were nice just to sit outside with a cup of coffee. The furniture was beautiful, and comfortable, so much detail went into this house we just kept noticing different little things that looked liked it was handcrafted just for this house....Beautiful !

The kitchen had every cabinet full of anything you would need for a cookout, or a fancy set up for dinner guest. Tupperware, Cuisinart coffeemaker , blender, name it. Grill outside.

The fish pond was so unique.... everyone, and I mean everyone spent time with those fish...they weren't lonely while we stayed there, and they were very friendly, even the Professor

We were a family of 7... myself, two sisters, 50-60ish one boyfriend, one husband, two grown kids 21 and 16

We want to come back and stay longer next time. Wow !!!....Just WOW !!!

Thank you for sharing your amazing ...Villa Oasis

Zen-like home

  • 5 of 5

As this is our second summer in the North Shore Oasis, I again struggle internally with whether to write an honest review and risk having this spot become too popular. Because honesty is the best policy, I will share that this home, and it will truly feel like your own, is fabulous. Doug has designed a beautiful vacation spot with attention paid to every detail. From the moment you step through the front door with the exotic dragonfly door knocker, you know the house is special. You are greeted by the sounds of a waterfall and the sight of a beautiful internal tropical garden and coy pond, which you can enjoy from a comfortable chair or the spa or from the view inside the house. The 5 coy are very entertaining and a packet of fish food was provided to feed the fish if you so chose. We did.

The kitchen is lovely and well-equipped and stocked with a lot more than the basics. The plates, glassware and serving pieces match and are plentiful. The living and dining area are separated from the 11th tee of the Makai golf course and views of Bali Hai by floor to ceiling glass. The house is decorated in a soothing combination of beige, sage, blues and greys that work beautifully with the exterior views. There is a well-executed Asian design theme that is elegant and inviting. The bedrooms are appointed with very comfortable mattresses and pillows and soothing soft linens. The addition of bedroom air conditioners made for excellent sleep as the temperature could be controlled and the local rooster population's cacophony kept at bay. Both bathrooms are well-designed with wondetful showers that have the feel of a spa. The new covered deck on the entire back of the house was an excellent addition, where we enjoyed breakfast every morning and cocktails in the evening. There are Bluetooth speakers throughout the house, which are wonderful to enjoy your choice of music. The Wifi worked flawlessly.

As if this is not enough, everything you could possibly want or need for the beach is provided from bikes to chairs, towels, umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys, surf boards, beach bags to coolers and bicycles and a kayak.

Our 12-day stay passed far too quickly, but was completely delightful. Thank you Doug for sharing your beautiful home and aloha hospitality yet again. We look forward to returning to Kauai Oasis.

We stayed here 4 nights as part of a longer Hawaiian vacation. We splurged a bit on this property because it looked very nice in the photos, so expectations were fairly high. The Oasis did not disappoint - it truly made us feel like we were on vacation! The courtyard with the pond was such a unique touch, we loved it. I can wholeheartedly recommend this property and would not hesitate to stay here again. Mahalo Doug!
