I spend a lot of my time volunteering in my kids schools, driving them to activities, and enjoying my community in Campbell.

Why Carrie Whitaker chose Princeville

We have been coming to the North Shore of Kauai for many years, and have always been enamored with it. When we began looking to buy we saw many beautiful homes and condos, but nothing felt like "it". It wasn't until we walked into Ali'i Kai and saw the breathtaking ocean view that we knew we had found our little piece of paradise.

What makes this condo unique

The truly endless ocean views and sound of the crashing waves make this property incredibly special.

Perfect location in the best location with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Carrie’s place was better than expected! The pictures don’t even do it justice. We had such an amazing stay, large in part due to the awesomeness of what this place had to offer: prime location, amazing views (ocean front), and all the snorkel supplies! We were just a three minute drive (15-20 min walk) from the Princeville center and a 10-12 minute drive to the town of Hanalei. Queens bath was right around the corner and Turtle cove was right below us! We enjoyed going down the cliffs to watch the turtles come to shore every night.

With the cross breeze, the condo was the perfect temperature. One of the fans in the bedroom was down and Carrie was so quick to get back to us to make sure we could get everything working again.

Five of us stayed and it was more than comfortable. Oh yeah, and so was all the bedding!!!

Thanks so much for the awesome stay! I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Great View and Value in Princeville

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed 4 nights with 4 adults in this Princeville 2Bd/2Ba condo. Condo has direct ocean view. Convenient location in Princeville. Unit is clean and has a new washer and dryer. Note there is not air conditioning in the condo which is typically not a problem. The owner provides some beach gear for use which comes in handy. Our crew enjoyed Hide-Away Beach. A short drive and hike down to the beach from the condo.

Terrific Ocean Views, Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5

We decided to stay here because the idea of waking up to ocean views through every window was very appealing and did not disappoint. The condo is found in the back of a very nice residential area and was within walking distance to a number of hikes and attractions (golf, Kings and Queens Bath, Turtle Cove). Turtle Cove is practically right beneath you, and while the hike is steep and it's best to gauge the tides before you go, it was a lot of fun to visit. The owner (Carrie) was actually out of the country when we visited, but she left contact info for the maid (Marika), who immediately called me when I inquired about an attraction and was very helpful. We also tried a number of items on a list of recommendations Carrie provided. There were only two (very reasonable) asks in terms of how to maintain the property during our stay and collect our full deposit, which we did a few days after checking out. Princeville and Hanalei were beautiful--even with the mudslides having closed access to some of the areas we'd hoped to visit, we fell in love with the north shore and would look here first on future visits.

Gorgeous well kept property right on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was nothing short of fabulous. When we arrived the condo was super clean and stocked with all the basics we would need. The grocery store is just minutes down the road and we got our fill of different flavors of poke. The view is incredible and the adventurous hike down the cliffside to snorkel was not to be missed (but vigorous and difficult). Beds were all extremely comfortable. Owner was very responsive to any needs during our stay. We didn't get a chance to go to the St. Regis beach (just minutes down the road) until the very last day and should have gone is also extremely beautiful down there. We would definitely stay here again the next time we visit the North Shore!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this condo enough! Great location with spectacular views of the ocean. The condo is in great condition and the owners are nice enough to stock it with beach towels, chairs, and snorkel gear. The kitchen is well stocked with all the essential pots, pans, bowls, etc. you would need to cook during your stay.

This is a wonderful property, you won't be disappointed!
