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 Princeville

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.

Perfect location! Condo is well stocked, clean, and in great condition!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The morning breakfast on the patio with the waves crashing, the evenings under the stars, and the lush, well maintained facilities! We used the washer and dryer, coffee maker, stove, microwave, hair dryer etc. The bed was very comfortable and the WiFi was convenient. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Kauai!

Beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at their place, you can't beat the view. A few minor hiccups like the internet wasn't working so we rebooted it and it worked again, window screens kept falling off but we kept fixing it and the toaster stopped working, no biggie there. Everything else was great, they had beach chairs, towels and a cooler which we put to good use. I do recommend to stay at their place.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that this guest had a great time at our condo. We are sorry the window screen kept falling off. We have our screens and windows washed once a month. I have a feeling the screen did not get reattached properly after being washed. As soon as we were notified we had our handyman there with in one hour to take care of it. This guest told us about the toaster when they checked out. We had a new one in two days. As far as the wifi goes, we all know that this just happens sometimes and we don't really know why. But it is an easy fix. Thanks for the chance to address these issues. Jim & Ricki

Sea Lodge Unit C4 - Excellent Condo with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

I'm really happy to have picked this condo for my trip to Kauai. Condo was very clean and it has gorgeous views of the ocean from bedroom and from the living room. I stayed in this condo for 6 days and I really had everything I wanted from items in the Kitchen to towels, washer/dryer, coolers, beach chairs, internet (not secured ), fans (No AC though you don't need one since you can keep your windows open + fans and you'll get pleasant breeze ). Bedroom door was attached to the wall so you can't close the door. (it didn't bother me but not sure for the people who may need privacy) Porch is open and you can walk closer to the cliffs (Cliffs are actually very closer than I originally thought which made my stay even more pleasant). It made me feel like being in home once I return in the evening after long and strenuous hikes, and snorkeling. The owners were very responsive from the time I booked the condo sending brochures with all the info I need. I didn't have to call them even once to ask for anything. If I come back to Kauai, I would definitely like to come back and stay here in this unit.

Thanks Jim and Ricki for making my trip enjoyable with a lovely condo.

I would also recommend this unit for others since its really worth the stay.

We had a wonderful time looking out over the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is well stocked, and provided us with everything we needed while up in the North Shore! Having a washer/dryer in the unit was great, and the VIEW! It was really nice to spend time reading in bed and looking out at the ocean.

We enjoyed exploring Hanalei, and also being close to Kilauea (Anini beach was the only place we were able to swim due to the huge surf the week we visited). We would love to visit again.

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.
