About Kathy Chamberlain
Our permanent home is Washington DC but we love escaping to Kauai, especially in the winter. After visiting Kauai several times in the 1980's and falling in love with the north shore, we purchased our house in 1990, 2 years before hurricane Iniki destroyed many homes on Kauai, ours included. By 1995 it was rebuilt as a totally different (and oh so much better) house. It's worth the long trip from the east coast! We love to snorkel, bike, kayak, stand-up-paddle, walk, and just enjoy a good book while sitting under a palm tree at the beach. You will too!

Why Kathy Chamberlain chose Princeville
The north shore of Kauai is the most beautiful place in the world. We love Princeville because it is on a bluff overlooking the ocean-- flooding will never be a problem! The Hanalei Bay Villas are perfectly situated for the best ocean, bay and mountain views on the north shore. We bought Hanalei Bay Villa 25 for its views and easy access to beaches.
What makes this House unique
Ours is a stand-alone house, so renters benefit from the privacy of having a house to themselves. It is close (but not TOO close) to the luxurious St Regis Princeville Hotel, just a 5-minute walk. Our house is not on poles like most Hanalei Bay Villas, which means we can walk out the lower lanai into the back yard for easy access to the herb garden and tropical fruit trees. There is whale-watching from the front door (Jan-April), frequent rainbows over the ocean, easy sunset watching from the bluff in front of the house. Guests often comment on how comfortable, well-equipped and nicely decorated our house is.

Loved this House in Paradise!
We so much enjoyed our stay at this property. It far exceeded our expectations, and the location was just perfect-- walking distance to beaches, 2 miles from grocery store, steps from St. Regis hotel, gorgeous ocean view from the front door, mountain view from most windows. This 2-story house has the living area upstairs where the views can be appreciated, and the bedrooms downstairs. The kitchen is well equipped with all the appliances, pots, pans, serving ware, etc. to prepare all meals. The dining area is spacious, with a view of the ocean, and the lanai offers an option for dining alfresco in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed using parsley, mint, basil, and more from the herb garden in the back yard. We were extremely happy with our choice of rentals on this vacation to the most beautiful part of the most beautiful of Hawaiian islands. Mahalo to the owners!
Thanks for coming! Hope you come back real soon. You were wonderful guests!
Best rental experience ever!
What a gorgeous home in an unbelievably beautiful setting. Not only was the house comfortable and immaculately clean, it had everything we needed, plus many extras, for a fabulous stay. We used the herb garden in the back yard to supplement the extensive variety of produce at the farmers market and the uniquely delicious Kauai shrimp available at Foodland to create memorable gourmet meals. Kitchen was extremely well equipped, roomy and convenient. We enjoyed many meals on the lanai, taking in the views of mountains, lush tropical foliage, and the occasional rainbow. The king bed was magically comfortable, so we slept well every night, enjoying gentle trade winds coming through the sliding screen door and many louvered windows. The house is convenient to many north shore beaches, a couple of them walkable, the others just a short drive away. A small shopping center, including a full-size grocery store and a food court, is a convenient 2 miles away. The St. Regis hotel is a very short walk-- maybe 10 min. It has very expensive food and drink, but an unbelievable view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. Bottom line: We loved this house because it enhanced our visit to this gorgeous part of Kauai. We will definitely be back.
Perfect stay in Bali Hai
My wife and I are frequent visitors to Kauai and have been running the Kauai Marathon for 6 years straight. We always stay in Poipu for the duration of our trip and we often travel to the North Shore to enjoy some of the spectacular beaches there. This year, we decided to split our Kauai vacation by staying in Poipu for the first half and up North in Princeville for the second half. We didn't want to stay in a hotel and opted for VRBO instead. Since this was my first VRBO rental, I searched extensively for a charming home with close proximity to the beaches. The search returned many options, however, the one that I was drawn to the most was Hanalei Bay Villa #25. Upon reading positive review after positive review, I decided on #25. All the descriptions advertised in the VRBO summary are accurately represented (clean, well maintained, great customer service, great location). The house is charming with stunning views of Bali Hai. There was no need for AC as the trade winds kept a nice soft breeze throughout the home. The hosts were perfect in every way by providing us with detailed instructions from arrival to departure and a long list of great activities (including some local secrets). There was no need to rent beach chairs or umbrellas as the hosts already provided all the necessary beach ware. The house is equipped with all of the comforts from home including washer & dryer and wifi. Although we dined out every evening, #25 comes equipped with a full kitchen. We had a 5 min walk to the St Regis for a spectacular sunset dinner (highly recommended). I am extremely pleased with our VRBO decision and highly recommend Hanalei Bay Villa #25 to anyone looking for a wonderful North Shore experience conveniently located near beaches, fun activities and a short walk to an amazing sunset dinner experience. We will definatly be coming back.
We loved having you as guests and hope you come back many times! Thanks for the great and descriptive review.
At home in paradise
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Made all breakfasts and many dinners 'at home' on the lanai. Beautiful! And spent our days exploring & hiking or going to the beach! Love it here! And Kathy has made it easy and been so great to work with! Aloha & Mahalo!
Thanks for the great review, Elsie! We're so glad you chose our "home in paradise", and hope you come back soon to pick up where you left off with your exploration of Kauai.
Kathy and Bob
This ranks up there with the the most beautiful places we have ever stayed in the world. Everything is in top shape, well thought through, and the views through windows and lanai--- and location --are tops. Right near Na Pali Coast and best beaches. We prefer the North Shore.
Thanks for the great review, Ed. We hope you come back many times!
What a wonderful way to ring in the New Year - 2017!!
This is definitely the most well appointed, attractive and well equipped property that I have rented and I have rented more than a few. I have been spoiled by all your pots, pans, cutlery, dishes, glasses for every beverage. My son and I each like to cook so your well stocked kitchen enhanced our stay and helped us to save on meals out. The organizational skills of the owners surpassed anyone I know and made our stay a dream. I could make some New Year's resolutions based on the observations that I made of house this house is set up and guidance provided as to where everything is and how to use all the wonderful amenities that are provided. Recommendations of where to go and places to see were spot on. We snorkeled at the recommended beach and saw turtles we hadn't seen in Oahu using the snorkeling equipment provided. We were comfortable in the beach chairs and the towels provided. The décor of this house is fantastic. Either the owner has supreme taste or hired an excellent interior decorator. Every day I admired a picture or wall ornament or lampshade cover that I hadn't noticed previously. The niceties that are provided to you will not be found anywhere else - every paper product imaginable, books and movies and music and all so will cared for. Lighting was great Views are heavenly. If we hadn't been heading to the Big Island I'd have been too depressed to leave. I stayed at a rental property the week prior to Kauai and then the Hilton Waikoloa afterward. Of the three, I would return to this wonderful home in Kauai without a doubt. I hope to return to this home within a couple years, sooner if possible. Paradise does not quite fully describe it.
