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.

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally write reviews, but this time . . . it's different!

Doug's place is AWESOME! The only problem I have with Doug is, there are actually MORE amenities than he has described in the listing.

We knew he had bikes, coolers, beach chairs, towels etc. But we took snorkel gear and didn't need it. Doug's place had it already. Not the cheap stuff either. Good quality snorkels. (BTW, snorkel gear IS in the listing . . . but I must've missed that) - We took bluetooth speakers in our luggage to sync up to our ipods and laptops . . . we didn't need to! Doug's place had these amazing Samsung bluetooth speakers (all laid out with instructions on how to sync them)! - There were two extra cots (and bedding) so my children didn't have to fight about sleeping in the same bed together. We didn't expect that.

The koi were fun to feed every day! (We made sure we fed "the Professor" first since he was less agressive. If you're not careful, "Ginger" will eat everything you throw into the pond.)

The "zen" rock / water garden is amazing and peaceful.

Doug's communication, labels, and instructions are idiot proof!

I have told everyone I know . . . if they are going to Kaua'i . . . see if the North Shore Oasis is available.

Better than we ever imagined

  • 5 of 5

Let me start with this...I was a general manager at a hotel property as well as a general manager in the restaurant industry....I am all about taking care of the guest and making sure thy have a fabulous experience each and every time...I am a perfectionist cross every t and dot every I.....never in our wildest dreams did we expect to have the treatment that I normally give my husband always says the reason I critique things the way I do is because he says no one does it like I do....I give what I expect, 150% every's the one exception to my husbands rule....Doug the owner and his five star plus property....from the minute I spoke with Doug on the phone...I knew exactly where we would stay to celebrate our 35 year anniversary......we truly could have stayed anywhere...but I will tell you this....there is no where else we will ever stay nor vacation again except for at North Shore Oasis....the properties pictures DONT do it justice at all....from entering the magnificent door that leads you to an outdoor oasis with a bridge and koi pond to the upscale decorating and the stocking of the kitchen and everything you can imagine one would need or want for a vacation, from coolers, to umbrellas, bikes Doug didn't miss anything when he stocked and put this gem of a property up for rental.....this beautiful exquisite house is close to everything and truthfully being in Hawaii for the first time....we had a hard time leaving the it was so peaceful for us. I actually called Doug the day we arrived and thanked him for being so upfront about everything and telling him it was better than we ever imagined....and actually called him the day before we left and said how sad we were leaving....this was truly the best property we have ever stayed at and the host by far the absolute best ever! 5 stars is too low to rate this magnificent house...we are trying to figure out dates for next year and will book again.....thank you for making our 35 year anniversary better than we could have ever expected...blessed and thankful to have stayed here!

Fantastic Princeville Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the North Shore Oasis for many reasons. First of all, it was an absolutely spectacular home from the beautiful entry into an interior garden space with waterfall, coy pond and garden to the breathtaking views of Makai's hole number 11 and Bali Hai from the entirely glass windowed rear of the home. Secondly, you need bring nothing but your clothes as this home has everything and more! Thirdly, it was spotless and was outfitted with first class amenities. Our hosts are clearly very thoughtful people.

The home is spacious and was very comfortable for our family of 5 (3 young adults). The kitchen was a cook's dream as it was well-configured and contained everything one needs to prepare a wonderful meal. Plus, we enjoyed a view of the interior garden or the golf course while cooking. The dining and living areas are also lovely and very comfortably (yet elegantly) furnished with colors that are soothing and appropriate to Kauai. There is a nice sound system that worked well with an aux cord plus a flat screen television with very comfortable seating. The beds were also very comfortable and outfitted with the softest sheets and an assortment of pillows. The bathroom (and beach towels) were plentiful and of excellent quality. The garage housed bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs, towels, beach bags, umbrellas, snorkel equipment, surf board, umbrellas, etc. of excellent quality. Our family loved how organized everything was. The owners have provided everything from sun screen to kitchen spices to fresh flowers to soaps to food for the coy in the garden pond to multiple fans perfect for hot nights. The third bedroom is air conditioned, which was perfect for a sensitive sleeper (or 3 which can comfortably sleep in the third bedroom). The showers were a treat as well as they were both very beautifully designed. Even though it was very warm during our visit, we used the spa (at a cooler temperature) and loved the garden setting as we relaxed after a day of golf.

Hanalei Bay beach is an easy 5-7 minute drive from the Oasis. Bike rides around Princeville are fun as well. The evening golf course sunset tour is not to be missed. Lei Petite coffee shop is an easy walk as is the grocery store, which stocks everything and anything you could want. As importantly, our favorite Lappert's Ice Cream is located in the same shopping area. There are plenty of restaurants within 2-10 minutes by car, if you prefer to dine out.

The pictures don't do this place justice! Our annual girl's trip was just wonderful and a huge part of that was due to the accommodations. We walked in and were floored by the thoughtfulness that has gone into this rental property - by far the best I've stayed in. Some of us are already talking about how we can come back and stay. Great location, great house, great time! The only thing we could even suggest would be some check out instructions on how you'd like us to leave the place to ensure you were happy with us as guests (i.e. leave sheets and towels in the washer, etc.). We couldn't get the BBQ to light, but that could have definitely been operator error and not a reflection on our stay at all. Loved it!

Incredible find in beautiful Princeville!

  • 5 of 5

The name Oasis is absolutely appropriate for this Kauai gem! This was my first experience with VRBO and I could not be more pleased. The house was wonderful - and equipped perfectly for relaxing after our daily adventures. My teenage son absolutely loved the hot tub, my husband is an early riser and enjoyed watching the sunrise over the mountains, and I found myself mostly out by the koi pond feeding the friendly fish (yes, they really have personalities!). We found the bikes to be handy as we explored Princeville and peddled over to Queens Bath. The linens, towels and bedding are above average. The layout of the house is extremely warm and inviting. I could not be more pleased with the amenities from the garage to the back deck. The location was close to Hanalei and Napali Coast, which we frequented. Our 6 day stay was way too short and I hope to come back and visit this beautiful island again soon. And if/when I do, I will absolutely stay in the Oasis again. Read all the reviews; they are all spot on. Doug is excellent, friendly and quick to return any communications. Thank you for sharing your amazing home with my family. It was a blessing!

North Shore Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from an incredible stay at the Oasis. We would have loved to stay longer, 3 nights was too short to completely enjoy this beautiful house! The house was incredibly beautiful and is in a quiet neighborhood backing up to the golf course, it is stocked with everything you could every want or need. Boogie boards, snorkel gear, bikes, beach chairs, binoculars, great travel/local books...everything! The house is focused around the outdoor koi pond, waterfall and rock garden, which you can see from nearly every room. We only used one of the bedrooms/bathroom but the entire house was beautifully decorated modern/Balinesian style. We can not wait to go back again! The owner is very attentive and quickly responsive. Do not hesitate to stay at the Oasis!
