About the property

Studio with Queen size bed, ground floor, close to the only paved path to beach

Looking for a romantic relaxing getaway in one of the most beautiful spots on earth? Our spacious studio unit has ocean front views and great trade wind exposure. It is on the ground floor with no stairs and easy access from the parking lot. Walk out your sliding glass door 30 steps to the ocean bluff that overlooks Turtle Cove and Queen's Bath. The Pali Ke Kua complex is unique for its spacious layout and lush grounds. It is situated on a beautiful bluff perfect for watching whales, dolphins or sunsets. Also unique to Pali Ke Kua is the paved path that takes you down to a hidden beach, known to locals as Hideaways Beach. There you will find a BBQ pavilion, great snorkeling of colorful fish and sea turtles, shade trees and the warm Hawaiian surf. Don’t forget you can rinse off that saltwater at the beautiful swimming pool and hot tub. You can enjoy dinner at the on-site restaurant.

The location is perfect for getting to all of the North Shore’s attractions. Play tennis or golf. Princeville has world famous golf courses played by the pros with 45 scenic holes. You are only a few minutes walk to the 5 star St. Regis resort with its fine dining, another secluded beach and magnificent views. Two miles away is the Princeville centre with grocery, shops, restaurants and gas. The little village of Hanalei and its world famous pristine beaches are only a 10 minute drive away. Hanalei has its own unique feel with a variety of restaurants and cute shops. Kileaua’s lighthouse, Princeville Adventure tours, a beautifully done miniature golf course are all just a short drive away.

Back at our unit, you will find it finely appointed and stocked for your comfort. There is a queen size bed with luxury linens, a sleeper sofa and flat screen TV. Our unit has a kitchenette which includes an under the counter fridge, microwave, toaster oven, toaster, coffee pot and a small set of dishes, bowls and utensils. On your lanai we just purchased an electric grill for outdoor cooking (no open flames allowed but you can do the electric) you can hear the ocean crashing on the rocks below. We’ve stocked it with beach chairs, 2 snorkel sets, small cooler and beach towels. The swimming pool, hot tub and new restaurant make this resort the place to enjoy the best of Kauai. Ahhh the sunsets....

(we just put in new hardwood floors & all new linens)

About Cara Newman Ruyle

Aloha! We are Richard & Cara. Owning at Pali Ke Kua is a dream come true! We have 3 great kids and have loved showing them the island of Kauai. We love sharing our passion for this beautiful island which is why we love sharing this unique location with our guests. Making memories to last a lifetime is our family priority and we want to share that with you. Our hope is that you will love it there as much as we do. To be able to sit on the lanai having a sip of something special and hear the waves crashing below is just about as good as it gets.....

Cara Newman Ruyle purchased this condo in 2014

Why Cara Newman Ruyle chose North Shore

Pali Ke Kua is such a special property. The layout is lush, tropical and spacious. Nothing is crowded there. You have access to the only paved path down to the beach in Princeville. It is maintained beautifully. The North shore beaches are world class. Our kids have snorkeled and surfed and built sandcastles. The North Shore has the perfect combination of adventure and healing relaxation. There is a Mayberry feel to Princeville that makes us so grateful for the friendliness and kindness of our neighbors there.

What makes this condo unique

This Ocean front Pali Ke Kua studio is the only one of its kind. There is no road noise like other condos. Pali Ke Kua is only a short walk from the St. Regis and it's elegant restaurants and views. And again, Pali Ke Kua has the only paved path down to a secluded beach. The on site restaurant is a great addition to the property. The views are spectacular in every direction..the famous Bali Hai view in one direction and the 7th hole of the famous Makai Golf course in the other. The sunsets alone are reason to call this Pali Ke Kua unit home for your special time on Kauai.

Perfect spot for us!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here and sipping coffee from the lanai and looking out at the ocean view. Well stocked and well cared for. Great value for the price. We loved the Hideaways restaurant, the path down to hideaways beach and the beautiful sunsets.

Clean, Comfortable, Budget Friendly

  • 5 of 5

This little studio was perfect for the week were there. It was spotless when we arrived, we never saw a bug while we were there. The bed was comfortable, and the little kitchenette did the trick to keep us in snacks and cold drinks. I used the patio every morning and every evening for coffee and sneak plain crackers to the birds. My only beware is note there is no washer and dryer and no laundry even near by, so plan accordingly or sink wash a couple things like we did. Other than that it was perfect.

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo for taking the time to write this review! We are so very grateful and pleased that you enjoyed your escape on this beautiful island. And yes, the laundry is not in the unit - although future guests please know that our housekeeper will do a load for you if you need it (for a small fee)! And it sounds like you enjoyed the lanai as much as I do! My first cup of coffee gazing out at the ocean....Thanks again!

Magnificent in all ways!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was all we were expecting plus so much more. Each day we had breakfast on the lanai, basking in the quiet sounds of the ocean and sun! Everyday we saw turtle and even a whale one day. We made trips to the hideaway beach, pool and Hideaway Pizza pub. This stay could not of been more perfect. We highly recommend the location! PERFECT!

Great location, great views!

  • 5 of 5

The studio was great, very clean and well equipped. The location on the bluff is amazing and the community has a private paved path to one of the better beaches in the north shore.
