Amazing Spring Break
We had a wonderful time during our spring break in Kauai during the middle of March, 2018. The condo is clean, spacious, has everything you need to cook meals and convenient to everything to do on the North side of the island. The view is simply spectacular. We loved waking up to the beautiful ocean every day. Princeville town center is a short drive where you can shop, have ice cream or shave ice, get some groceries and eat in a restaurant or get take out. We loved having a washer and dryer in the unit. We highly recommend this property. You can hit several beaches every day and still not have enough time to see them all. Thank you!
Our goal for this vacation was simply “rest”- and this condo more than provided that. It was so quiet. The view was better than we ever imagined. The condo was large (so large), clean, and very comfortable.
Other than the musty smell that comes with that type of location, we have zero complaints and would most definitely stay in this location again.
We had an amazing time at your place! True paradise! Your place was very comfortable,great decor and perfect for the five of us. We were worried about the day bed but it worked out very well with great view ! Great amenities and good amount of beach items. Although beaches were turbulent and unable to access many of them. Next door to St Regis which had a lot of night activity and music along with day activities. Hint is to use their elevator to go down the 9 levels to the beach. They do not mind....
The local Princeville Village is very close and has everything
A lot of walkability, very safe and very quiet . Condo very quiet ..
Yes it does smell slightly musty but due to being on the bottom floor most likely and certainly not a problem. No problems with circulation, air and breeze always there.
Thanks for sharing your place with us and would certainly return. !
Nice quite comfortable with beautiful location
Condo location is ideal. The st Regis is .1 mile away so you can easily walk to the beautiful sunsets and hideaway pizza is close. Some condos face the sunset, this one does not but has a pretty view of Queens bath and shore. Beds are great quality. Sufficiently stocked with beach needs but not overly. Living room and kitchen are really spacious. Master bedroom has screen door for great trade winds and ocean sound. Reserved to 4 stars because the closest were not easily accessible to do stubborn sliding doors. Another strange thing, there are no left over products from other guests. Usually there are soaps, shampoos, sunscreen, etc. Its not a big deal but helps one plan. Pool is warmer than most with pretty view. I’d stay again but I’d try for a room the faces the sunset first.
A friend and I stayed in this condo in Oct., not a warm beach month for the north side of Kauai, but we had a car and saw the island end to end!
This condo has a magnificent view. This view alone was worth the stay. We found the complex easily with the directions. The doors are tricky to open, but we had it down by the time we left. There were instructions and keys laid out neatly on the counter. We counted the towels and there were a couple missing ( some of which we found later), but I called the number of our contact and he was cool about it. There were some nice touches: coffee filters were greatly appreciated, as was the wine opener. The kitchen sink had a wrapped sponge left ready for our stay, which I thought was a very sanitary touch. There was a wrapped soap in each bathroom, also a nice touch! Hand soap, bathroom tissue, plenty of hangars in the closets, beach chairs, and boogie boards were all also appreciated.
The snorkeling equipment was filthy and looked like it needed bleach sanitizing, so we skipped that and rented equipment. There are some sorry looking artificial floral arrangements around which have seen a better day. These were trivial things.
The biggest con of this condo--the real meat-and-potatoes issue-- is that there is no air conditioning, and thus, in such a humid environment, the musty odor is difficult to prevent. There were plenty of fans around, both ceiling and table fans, which did help. But I think this odor without AC is kind of unavoidable. It seemed to get better as we stayed there, though my friend suggested maybe we were just getting used to it. But it was not as overwhelming after we opened the doors and let some air circulate. Again, we were there in October, not the biggest heat/ humidity time of year either.
That said, it's a nice condo, in a beautiful area.
There is a cool Hideaway beach to hike down to adjacent to the condo property. The St. Regis Princeville hotel is walking distance to the condo, and there is live music in their bar/lounge.
Bottom line, we enjoyed our stay and it was a comfortable place for us with all the fans, but if you have to have air conditioning, look elsewhere.
Aloha, Thank you so much for taking the time to send in a review upon our request. We are glad you found the unit pleasing in many ways. The unit is as advertized without air conditioning and there are quite a few places in Kauai that don't have air conditioning. The location of this unit does help being located right on the bluff as the trade winds are great. There are usually only a couple times throughout the year that they do not blow. The unit itself is partially subterranean and with the dampness of island living, you will get some of the associated tropical smells. As you mentioned opening things up and getting the air flowing is helpful and usually the unit is closed up just before your arrival. We do supply and guarantee the boogie boards, the beach chairs, the beach cooler and the beach towels. However the snorket gear is not an amenity for this unit. Although if the owner or other guests have left some equipment there, guests are free to use it if they so choose but it is not upkept by us. Suppling snorket gear is difficult with different sizes and multiple parts which just cannot accommodate a variety of guests. We are so glad you enjoyed the unit and hope you can return!
We had a fabulous stay. The condo was clean nicely done. We would definitely stay again. It was as promised, a short walk to St. Regis and had a fabulous beach just below the condo.
Aloha , We appreciate your review and are glad you had a fabulous stay! Thank you for noting the cleaniness and acknowledging you would stay again. That is great feedback for us. We do hope you can come again.
