Thank you for your home! We loved the unit and its proximity to beaches and other properties. Anini beach was a favorite for swimming and Haena beach for surf watching!

I have been to Kauai many times and try to venture to new areas and stay in different condos. There were 3 adults and we had plenty of room. The lighting, as mentioned before, was not sufficient in the living room for reading or for anything at night. Unfortunately, there were very large cockroaches on the kitchen floor, counter and bathtub, not good! (They were spraying for pests the day we arrived but we did not want the smell of pesticides while on vacation; maybe this could have been done much before our arrival). The mgmt. company was very frustrating to work with as far as paperwork, we were left no pool key and the ice maker did not work. When these things were reported, they were handled, but we should never had to deal with any of these issues. I will say the condo is nice, roomy and beds very comfortable. As noted again below in reviews they want shoes off, but there is no where to put them safely outside and no shoe "tray" near front door. Also, the directions to locate the unit were terrible. We came in late at night, we had a flashlight, but the directions say turn off of Wyllie and you will see Puamana......then what???? How many driveways down, units face the walkways, anything would have been helpful since the buildings themselves are not clearly marked...if it's raining and dark, good luck. Thankfully we found someone who lived in our building. The location in Princeville is wonderful, we loved the walking trails, and the condo was nice. I think more attention to detail from the mgmt. company would have made the stay more enjoyable.
My husband, 3 year old and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Kauai and staying at the Puamana condo. It feels like a stand alone home when you are inside. It was spacious and nicely decorated in modern, updated and comfortable decor. It was great for the 3 of us. It is also conveniently located to all the wonderful beaches, Princeville grocery store and Hanalei. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because we felt like the place was a bit lacking in the area of kitchen and beach supplies. When we go on long trips with our daughter, we intend on cooking at least half of our meals and we felt like the kitchen could really stand to be restocked with both slightly higher quality cookware (plates and bowls, cooking utensils, more pots and pans, kitchen towels) and some basic spices and food stuffs. Additionally, the beach equipment was also bare-bones, leaving us having to rent or buy most of what we needed (chairs, umbrella, scuba gear and sand toys). With these small improvements the place would hit the mark in all areas. Overall, it was a wonderful stay on this stunningly gorgeous island!
My husband and I stayed at this rental for five days following five days in a different vacation rental in Maui. Our Maui rental was incredible - perhaps part of what made this rental a little disappointing for us. When we arrived, the rental was incredibly stuffy and a little stinky from the stagnant air. It took a couple days to air it out. Also, you're not allowed to bring your worn shoes inside the condo due to the Kauai red dirt, but there's not really a secure place outside - or a doormat inside - to put your shoes when you take them off. We wore expensive hiking boots and other gear while in Kauai, so while we didn't have any incidents with our gear being stolen (and I'm sure it's a safe community), I was still uncomfortable leaving our nice gear outside.
Also, the living room area was VERY dark - basically impossible to sit in that area at night to read or do other non-TV activities, unless you had the dining room lights on. The kitchen was... fine. Has all the pots and pans you need, but you'll need to bring EVERYTHING else, including storage containers for leftover food or fruit. The bed in the master room was comfortable, and it was nice to have two full bathrooms, but the shower in the master bath didn't drain properly.
We weren't huge fans of the Princeville area, but it would be great for anyone looking for more of an resort-y feel of a vacation. We should have done our homework a little better before going. Princeville feels pretty isolated and sterile compared to the rest of the island.
Overall, a "fine" experience, but nothing outstanding. Just another typical vacation rental controlled by a property management group (i.e. basic needs met, helpful people, but really no personal touches).
The condo looks great. It is very well furnished. The rooms are very large and the kitchen is well equipped. But, there is no AC and it was very hot. It seem like the air from outside didn't come inside the condo so the heat would just stay in the condo. We have a 7 months old baby and the nights were really hard for him since he was so hot.
We didn't go to the beach near the condo because the hike was to dangerous with the baby (it was muddy and therefore slippery). Overall, we've enjoyed our stay but would not recommend it for families with small babies. This condo is for people who enjoys the heat!
Loved this little condo. The hike down to the beach is a bit steep, about 5 minutes down the hill and maybe 10 back up... but the beach wasn't crowded and it was very beautiful. I wouldn't recommend the hike for young children or elderly people, especially after a rain. It was a great stay, convenient location. There is no AC but it's Hawaii and hardly anywhere has it. Lots of wild chickens roam the property. The pool was nice but small, and it is "dry" so no alcohol is allowed. The rental company, Oceanside Realty was AMAZING to work with, very helpful.
