About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

We are located in Princeville, Kauai on a beautifully manicured grass knoll with views of the ocean from the lanai, living room and bedroom. Just steps away is a trail that leads to your own secluded cove. This is the perfect place to relax in the sun and snorkel along an awesome coral reef teeming with many colorful tropical fish native to the islands. Are you a golfer? The Prince and the Makai are two exciting golf courses that surround our location. Return to the condo and prepare your meals in our well equipped kitchen or if you choose, dine out at one of the many restaurants in the area. At night fall asleep to the soothing sounds of the waves breaking on the shore. In the winter season, late December thru March, watch the whales migrate right in front of our place. Paradise is closer than you think. Come visit Kauai soon.

About Jim Grindle

Hi, We are the Grindle's. Jim, not pictured, Ricki and our daughter Jaimi are the owners of our Princeville condo. While Jaimi was studying to become a Nurse she lived in the condo we now own. As parents we could not believe she lived in such a wonderful area as Princeville right on the ocean. One day she called and told us that the owners of the condo asked her if she would like to buy it. We were so excited about the idea that we said, lets do it. How could you not want a place right on the ocean in Kauai. Over the next six months we put in $40.000 in up grades. A friend of mine said if you are interested in renting your place I recommend vrbo. It was the right thing to do. Now we can rent our place and go when we want to. It has worked out perfect. Ricki and I live in Dana Point, Ca. and visit as often as we can.

Jim Grindle purchased this condo in 2000

Why Jim Grindle chose North Shore

Kauai is known as the' Garden Island' and Princeville, located on the north shore, is unreal. We are right on the ocean with wonderful trade winds. At night we fall asleep listening to the waves breaking on the shore. Its paradise.

Fabulous!!! Can't Imagine a better Unit for the Price

  • 5 of 5

Can't imagine a better place to stay on Kauai. This unit and the location far exceeded our expectations. We loved the community in which the unit was located - it was quiet and extremely well maintained. Being on the North side of the island really gave our visit a true island feel. We sat outside and took in that INCREDIBLE view each morning and evening. The star gazing was amazing.

Lying in bed each morning and looking at that incredible view was the perfect way to start the day. Falling to sleep with the sound of the ocean waves couldn't have been more soothing.

Everything else about the unit was perfect - clean - updated - nice decor. We appreciated that beach chairs, towels, umbrella, cooler were available for our use.

We had one minor issue and after emailing Jim it was looked at that afternoon. Talk about a quick response!

Like others have stated in previous reviews, we were a bit concerned about staying in a non air conditioned unit, however, we were gone during the heart of the day and the breeze kicked in each evening. With the help of a few well positioned fans we were comfortable and slept very well.

We highly recommend this unit and hope it is still available when we visit again in the next couple of years.

Thank you Jim & Rickki

The View from the Lanai, the sound of the breakers in the evening, the quietness of Sealodge...I could go on and on. My wife and I spent 5 days in Maui and then 5 days at the Grindle's condo. Maui was terrific (we were on the beach there, as well). However, we both wish we would have stayed in the Grindle's condo for 10 days (and we will in the future). The beauty we encountered was breathtaking. But the icing on the cake was the Grindle's hospitality. We recently lost our eldest dog (our pride and joy) to cancer after 13 years. We had to cancel our trip in April of 2017. Jim was wonderful and assisted in rescheduling us for Sept. Thanks so much, Jim! We will be back. Just a once in a lifetime experience that we plan on experiencing, again.

We stayed in unit C-4 for 10 days to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Everything we needed was there, it was quiet and so relaxing. The evening sunsets were spectacular, we just walked out from the Lanai a few feet to see it each evening.

Although it was quite warm and humid in August, the fans and open windows made it comfortable. We highly recommend it and would love to return in January or February.

Perfect condo with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo. My wife and I travel to Kauai every couple of years and really enjoy the north shore so we decided to stay at Sealodge. This was the perfect spot for us and the view is just breath taking. The condo itself had everything we needed to cook our meals as well as beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, snorkel gear, etc. Perfect for a day at the beach. The bed was very comfortable and waking up to that view from the bedroom window was amazing. The owners were very responsive when we noticed the blender was leaking. We let them know and in less than 24 hours we had a brand new blender to use for the remainder of our stay. We would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you, Adam & Shannon Moore
