Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Condo with mountain and garden views and close to the beach

Pali Ke Kua, a 22 acre condo resort is located in Princeville on the north shore of Kauai. Patterned after the Hawaiian style hale, it sits among broad expanses of lawn atop a 200’ bluff overlooking the vast Pacific.

This condo is #16 in Pali Ke Kua and is a 2BR/2BA split level end unit with no one above or below affording you extra privacy. Off the lanai is an expanse of lawn with a garden view of the Hanalei mountains as well as a peek-a-boo view of Hanalei Bay. Unlike most condos in the Princeville area, this one has a portable air conditioning unit , a welcome addition during the warmer months of the year.

The condo has a fully-equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances including an induction range. The bedrooms with their adjacent baths have a king and double size bed. Double and twin bed mats can be used for extra sleeping options. The condo is equipped with a telephone, ceiling fans in every room, a washer and dryer, hair dryers, ironing board and iron, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, sand toys and coolers available for your use.

After a day of exploring Kauai’s north shore, enjoy a refreshing drink on the lanai taking in the pleasant trade winds. You will then know why Kauai is called Paradise.

Take a short stroll over to the 200’ bluff where you may see playing porpoises, humpback whales and a spectacular sunset over Bali Hai. A private paved path leads you down to the virtually private Hideaways beach where snorkeling is among the best on Kauai.

Amenities include a swimming pool, hot tub and restaurant. A short walk down the road will take you to the famous St. Regis Resort. Walk or drive to the Princeville Shopping Center where you will find all the comforts of home, including a market with pharmacy, post office, shops, restaurants, etc.

About John Dawson

My wife, Janice, spent her early years growing up in Hawaii and I'm a California boy. Our children and grand children are really looking forward to spending some time in this beautiful location on Kauai.

John Dawson purchased this condo in 2015

Why John Dawson chose North Shore

What I love the most about Pali Ke Kua is that it is vintage Hawaii, with Hawaiian hale styled condo and broad expanses of lawn. They don't make resorts like this anymore!

What makes this condo unique

One of the most unique benefits of Pali Ke Kua is the private paved path down the bluff to a secluded beach accessible only by this path. It's reported to have some of the best snorkeling in Kauai.

This property is well maintained and in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed by this property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were lucky enough to enjoy a week here. We cooked in most meals and found the kitchen and supplied cookware/glassware etc. to be well thought out and easily capable of enabling catering for our family of four.

The location is excellent. We walked the short distance to hideaway beach and Queen's bath on multiple occasions without fuss from our 10 or 13 year olds. The western bluff area is an excellent place to catch one of the most beautiful settings in the world looking over Hanalei Bay and down the Napali coast. Golf and tennis could hardly be closer. Hanalei Bay is a just a five minute drive with little and big Lumahai 5 minutes more down the same road.

There were ceiling fans in every possible location providing very good air circulation. The downstairs master was a very comfortable temperature while the upstairs could use a little more venting but was still a happy place for our two kids to sleep.

I don't know if this is always the case but there were several snorkels with masks left in the master closet as well as some beginner boogie boards. The boogie boards are not capable of handling much more than 1-2 ft waves but are perfect for floating around at little Lumahai etc.

Hideaways Pizza is the "on campus" restaurant. If you look on Yelp you may find poor reviews but we found the food and staff to be very good and were seated and served good beer, wine, and pizza quickly.

Perfect location and experience

  • 5 of 5

This is actually my second time staying at this location, glad I did. The property and location is perfect, walk to the beach or short drive to hanalei. I noticed the beach here has much better snorkeling than the supposed good spots off of Ke'e. No crowds, no driving, clearer water, much more fish. In fact, saw schools of fish and a turtle.

The owner has since added a portable AC unit, it helps a lot. Not powerful enough to get it very cold of course, but helps quite a bit and makes it nice and comfortable to come home too.

Also, the pizza place in the complex (maybe 200 feet away) is great, I don't remember it being so good.

Would highly recommend this rental to anybody traveling to Kauai.

This condo was ideal. Close to the St. Regis, but also a nice sense of privacy.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well appointed, even with beach supplies. We were there for our son's wedding at The St. Regis, and even though it was just my husband and I staying there, it was great to have the extra space for the various comings and goings of guests. Would highly recommend to others.

Nice Condo, lovely grounds, weak A/C.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice condo , well equipped with beach chairs, etc, excellent kitchen, washer/dryer. Lovely grounds and just a few minutes walk to view incredible sunsets. Walking distance to St. Regis , and centrally located , close to all amenities in Princeville/Hanalei. Very helpful owner , who replaced a torn patio chair immediately. There is not much privacy upstairs of course as it is an open galery type bedroom. The bathrooms are great. The only drawback we found was the portable A/C which appears to be inadequate to cool the place on hot days. The upstairs bedroom (open loft) is particularly warm even with the A/C and fans on. If you are not bothered by lack of cold A/C the condo is a gem.

Perfect week in Kauai with my family.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this beautiful condo during our sons' Spring Break. As we walked downstairs into the family room, our first impressions were, "WOW!". The open feel of the condo, the wide and crystal clear windows and glass slider that looked out onto a spacious and beautifully maintained open space area right outside the patio and the gorgeous shade tree just outside the kitchen was just the beginning. The kitchen had nicely upgraded appliances (that was the first time I had used an induction stove and oven) and all were clean and well maintained as well as new and clean washer and dryer. Every type of utensil/mixing bowl/kitchen needs were supplied. Everything listed in the rental advertisement was included and more....it saved us quite a few trips to the store. Snorkels, boogie boards, rain ponchos, plenty of beach towels, beach bag.... the list goes on and on. Air conditioning provided some very nice relief from the heat on our first day there. Luckily, the rest of the week cooled off nicely and the open louvers throughout the condo provided a nice breeze throughout the day and into the evening.

Hens and their chicks are pecking around in the bushes and we had a daily visits from Ne Ne Hawaiian geese. The geese make the most subtle and gentle cooing sound....nothing like the geese we have at home.

The Pali Ke Kua pathway down to the beach is very close to the condo and we made many trips to this beautiful beach for surfing, snorkeling and tidepooling. The colorful fish, crabs, sea cucumbers and even an eel in the tide pool and shallow snorkeling waters was such a treat for our youngest son. It's hard to believe the stunning views from the cliffs is reality and not something only on a postcard. Picture perfect. We feel so spoiled to have stayed at this location. When we go back to Kauai, we will request this same location again.

I would like to add a note about above and beyond service from the property owner during our stay. Upon our arrival, the owner notified us that he was informed about a maintenance issue prior to our arrival ...leaky toilet and lack of power to the upstairs bathroom. We were told it would be fixed right away and that promise was fulfilled. We were kept in the loop the entire time and we greatly appreciated the updates and communication from the property owner to enhance our stay. We are grateful to see how expeditiously the repairs were made.

We will look forward to visiting again. Thank you
