About the Property

Spacious 5 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath oceanbluff vacation home - great for families

Hale Makana is a spacious, ocean bluff home perched right above the Pacific at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the Princeville Resort on Kauai's famed North Shore. Close to award-winning golf courses, shops, restaurants beaches, and adventures, the home provides luxurious accommodations for families and groups of 10 maximum. A vacant lot to the right side, a large front lawn, and immaculate landscaping add to the spaciousness and privacy of this fabulous property. Construction is near completeion on the lot to the west, and for this reason, some of the photos show the construction fence. We have given special consideration for the potential inconvenience by reducing the rate over 30% through April, 2017, so this is your chance to come and stay for a lot less! As most guests are active exploring the island during the day, the construction should not be too intrusive. Guests have given 5 star ratings during the construction period too.

Beautiful Hawaiian artwork adorns the walls, while the natural beauty provides ocean or mountain views from almost every room. The master bedroom looks out over the pool and jacuzzi to a spectacular ocean view with access to two lanais or decks. This is one of the premier, whale-watching locations on Kauai and seeing their spouts is an almost daily occurrence during winter months. Dolphins and turtles are also regular visitors to this coastline and even the rare, Hawaiian, monk seal has been spotted playing in the water below. Albatross nest annually and soar overhead in winter time. Shearwater's nest in the cliff and Brazilian cardinals look out for crumbs daily!

Photos cannot possibly do this property justice - it has to be seen to be believed! Repeat customers are our mainstay... why not become one of them!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2000

About: My family visited Kauai many years ago and fell in love. Coming from Washington and Canada it was a beautiful place to thaw out, vacation and explore the culture and adventures Kauai has to offer. Since purchasing the property, we have made upgrades each year to keep the quality and comfort of the property.

Why Princeville, HI, USA:
When we found this house on the bluff overlooking the ocean, we knew it would not only be a magical place for our family to stay, but it had already been a successful vacation rental. We have improved just about every aspect of the house and garden every year and know first hand what a joy it is to stay here. Many of our clients come back year after year, and we get to escape the cold and enjoy every winter together as a family. Our property manager offers the finest service of anyone we know, and she treats our guests to the same service - lei greeting and home orientation; fresh fruit basket and the fresh tropical flower arrangements throughout the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unbelievable sunsets into the ocean during the summer; watching the whales spout and breach many times during the winter months; hearing the eerie moaning of the shearwater's nesting in the cliffs; daily visits from our family of cardinals; soaring Laysan Albatross right across our lawn and often a breeding pair close by.... so many incredible adventures in nature. Our home is the perfect jumping off point for exploring Kauai. With the Princeville Center only moments away for groceries, restaurants and shops, and walk, jog or bike path around the Princeville Resort; great golf and tennis close by... it has everything we need.
