This Luxurious “ALOHA” Studio (Unit 1202-Side A with FULL Kitchen) “COMPLETELY Remodel” Is Nestled in Building 1 (Hale Ekahi) on the Second Floor of “The Cliffs at Princeville Resort” which is located on the north shore of the Garden Island of Kauai. The Cliffs lies within the Princeville Resort on 22 acres of lush tropical garden land - called the "Cliffs" because of its situation on a high bluff, overlooking the north Pacific.

Unit 1202 (Side A) – “ALOHA” Studio features a King size bed, FULL GOURMET KITCHEN, inside dining and social area, and private lanai where you may dine outside with a “lush tropical botanical” garden view. Parking is easy and complimentary, and wireless is provided by “The Cliffs at Princeville” throughout the complex. The full kitchen with all stainless steel appliances, has a range, refrigerator, coffee pot, rice cooker, toaster, blender and dishwasher. Access to a laundry machine shared with 1202 (Side B) – “OHANA” Studio is provided in the Foyer. The bathroom features a walk in shower with modern tile and fixtures. “The Cliffs at Princeville” complex is located on the Bluffs overlooking the Pacific and features tennis courts, half-court basketball, a newly renovated pool with waterfall and private adult Jacuzzi, putting green, shuffle boards, on-site bike rental and many outside grills and more.

Concierge located next to the business center is “FREE”, and the staff is more than happy to help/suggest or plan/reserve any activity you desire.

“The Cliffs at Princeville” is located close to two of the outstanding golf courses in Hawaii, with the number one rated golf course in Hawaii, the Prince Course, as well as the highly regarded and much less difficult (but still challenging) Makai course nearby. “The Cliffs at Princeville” is close to shopping and many restaurants and the world famous St. Regis Hotel.

Guest Access:

All Guest must check in and check out at lobby front desk. Guest will be issued key card for main front door to enter foyer and parking pass. Resort fee includes parking.

Our Studio does not have a phone landline, please go to the front desk for assistance.

Please know our studio condo is on the 2nd floor, and a flight of stairs must be climbed.

Guests have access to everything, including the putting green, tennis courts, pool, kids' playground, small workout gym, bocce ball, shuffleboard and all the other amenities. The Cliffs also features classes including basket weaving, cliff-side yoga, pilates, introduction to scuba, cooking classes, and botanical tours.

Interaction with Guests:

I am available 24/7 through my text or phone. No matter the time of day I pride myself on being available for our guests.

Getting Around:

Unless you’re on a fairly leisurely schedule, you’ll need a car or other motorized vehicle to see and do everything on Kauai, which has one major road—one lane in each direction, in most places—that rings the island except along the Napali Coast. During rush hour, from about 6 to 9am and 3 to 6pm, the road between Lihue and Kapaa—the central business district—can turn into a giant parking lot, even with a third, “contra-flow” lane whose direction is determined by time of day. Bypass roads in Kipu (when heading north from Poipu) and Kapaa (when heading south) can alleviate some of the stress, but plan accordingly.

Note: The top speed is 50mph, with many slower sections in residential and business areas. Addresses in this chapter will use Kaumualii Highway (Hwy. 50) and Kuhio Highway (Hwy. 56/560), following local convention. Since highway addresses can be hard to spot (if marked at all), directions may be given with mile marker numbers, cross streets, and/or the descriptors mauka (toward the mountains) and makai (toward the sea).

By Car--All of the major car-rental agencies are represented on Kauai. At the airport baggage claim, cross the street to catch one of the frequent shuttle vans to the rental lots.

Everything I needed in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in such a quiet location, and it had literally everything I needed while on vacation. It may sound strange, but I especially appreciated the icemaker in the freezer, so I could load up my water bottles in the morning before heading out for the day. The kitchen was well-equipped for me to make breakfast and the occasional dinner, and it was nice to be able to sit and chill on the lanai at night. I would definitely stay here again should I return to the island!

Beautifully decorated, thoughtfully equipped and very well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Milo and Theresa's place is tastefully decorated, with great Hawaiian flair. The Aloha side of the 1202 unit (it is a single 2 BR unit split into two units at the Cliffs Resort, very smart) has everything one would need for a lovely Kauai getaway. The full kitchen is well equipped with stainless steel appliances and all the cooking utensils that one would ever need. We cooked quite a few times here and we are quite serious home cooks. This place is so nice, it is inspiring me to start thinking about buying our own unit.

The Cliffs Resort itself is also quite well equipped. The frontdesk and concierge are friendly and very helpful. The amenities are well kept with pools, jacuzzi, tennis courts and even a putting green (right in front of this unit). I find it to be very usable, unpretentious (unlike Westin and St. Regis, both of which I have been). Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the property. For those who need to hang clothes, just know that while there are plenty of drawers, but no closet. That said, while we were here for a wedding (so had things to hang), we had no issue at all finding ways around it. Such is the fun for traveling.

Milo was very welcoming through text and email and even sent a physical postcard after our trip. I look forward to being in Kauai again and I would not hesitate to book Milo's property (I'd even try another one they own at another property, just to see how they remodeled it).

Highly recommended.

Peaceful resort condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Cliffs resort and would return again. The studio condo was just as it was pictured. The lanai was lovely and private. The kitchen was perfect for putting together our breakfast in the morning. We enjoyed the beautiful resort pool and hot tub. Milo was very responsive and we even received a post card thanking us for our stay! I think the only thing that could be improved upon would be the Wi-Fi. The password given to us by the front desk didn't work so they gave us the password to the unit next door and it was incredibly slow. But we didn't need it that much since we were busy exploring all that the area had to offer. The condo is very central to activities - close to Hanalei Bay and Anini Beach. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Great Studio - Exactly as Pictured & Described!

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from 18 Nights at The Beautiful Cliffs Resort In Princeville.

This Studio is Spotless Clean, Modern and Equiped with mostly

everything you will need. The Bed is Super Comfy and the Kitchen is Great. I missed not having a closet to hang our clothes. The bureau drawers were small, so I ended up draping clothes over chairs, etc.

The Wicker Loveseat was not comfortable, so we mostly used the bed.

The Balcony was nice but again wish we had comfy chairs like other units.

Most nights, we enjoyed chatting with others in the Adult Hot Tub!

The Pool area and Grounds are very well maintained. The internet would

not work sometimes but it always came back on. It was Great having Foodland 5 minutes away. Emailed Milo with a couple of questions during our stay and he responded quickly!

Oh the memories!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed a week on Kauai and our stay in Princeville at the Cliffs Aloha Studio. The location was ideal for us since we enjoy the Hanalei Bay vibe. We hit the Safeway on our trip up from the airport to grab some essentials (coffee, eggs, bread, etc.). The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to get going in the morning. The entire unit appears updated somewhat recently. Nice touches with chic kitchen cabinetry, granite, bathroom tile and floor and crown moldings. My wife and I found the unit very functional and an ideal size for a couple. We had much exploring to do and with the exception of whale watching one evening on the grounds, we did not utilize the Cliffs' swimming pool or community BBQ grills. Plenty of powerstrips, internet and television to wind down to in the evening. The lanai was a great perk that I wish we could have used more - There is no light so we did not play cards out there in the evening. The trade-winds cool the place down well and we slept very comfortably every night. Earplugs are helpful with the abundance of roosters all over the island - They seem to not have much concept of time as they begin crowing around 2am. By night 2, I ditched my earplugs and resorted to using the additional pillows provided to sandwich my head and drown out the crowing. This unit served us very well and I would recommend it to a friend or family visiting beautiful Kauai.

Nestled on a secluded bluff overlooking the Majestic North Shore of Kauai, the Pacific Ocean stretches as far as the eye can see; where the clouds come alive and dance in concert with our endless sunrise and sunsets, interrupted only by the whales, turtles and waves crashing against the shore.

The views are simply stunning which is why at the beginning or end of every day you might find yourself drawn by the Adirondack chairs strategically placed along the ocean’s edge allowing you to ponder on the meaning of life, or simply enjoy Mother Nature at her finest.
