About the property

A Studio packed with personality is waiting for your next visit to Kauai.


So Green and Bright-A Feast for The Eyes!

2/24 We have had our sunny days and our rainy days. That is the North Shore typical weather this time of year. The surf is still pounding and awesome to view from the safety of the shoreline. There is always some where on the island where it is safe to swim and those handsome life guards are constantly on duty!!

01/12 The BIG SURF is pounding (yes, you can hear it in Princeville at night when all is quiet). The WHALES are off shore and you can even see a spout now and then. Or there are several boat trips that specialize in WHALE watching. A gentle rain is falling and we feel "snug as a bug". Happily the bugs stay outside because, I have to admit, I am a clean freak. No mold or mildew to be found in my Darling Studio! So many of my reviews mention how pleased they are with the cleanliness of the Studio. I like it clean and I know you will too!

01/12 This is the Garden Island so come and enjoy the myriad of blooming plants and trees. Kauai is covered in lush vegetation of all kinds. The North Shore offers 2 different Botanical Gardens giving a walking tour of native plants and flowers plus some history about this magical island. There is also a garden in Poipu Beach , on the South side, which is also historical. We look forward to your visit.

See you in the near future!!

07/12 A Lesson in Kauai Geology

Kauai is the oldest island in the chain making it one of the most beautiful and diverse of the Hawaiian Islands. Kauai nicknamed the Garden Island for its lush vegetation and abundant rainfall is home to many indigenous plants and wildlife. The island of Kauai is circular in shape and covers approximately 550 square miles.

Kauai is a volcanic island, rich with rain forest, swamp lands, lush valleys, waterfall lined craters, dramatic coastlines as well as the longest white sand beaches in all of Hawaii. Kawaikini Peak is Kauai’s highest point at 5,148 feet and has been known as the wettest spot on Earth, with over 400 inches of rain per year. The most spectacular geographical landmarks on Kauai are the Napali Coast and the Waimea Canyon State Park.

The eight main Islands of Hawaii(Big Island), Maui, Kahoolawe, Lanai, Molokai, Oahu, Kauai, and Niihau are the tallest mountains of an extensive range covering nearly 3,500 miles of the Pacific Ocean basin. Commonly known as the Hawaiian-Emperor volcanic range, these mountains span from the southeast corner of Hawaii(Big Island) past midway and bend north across the pacific ending in close proximity to the Aleutian Islands of Alaskan. The 350-mile stretch of mountain peaks we know as the Hawaiian island chain stand alone as one the most isolated Archipelago in the world.

The Emperor Sea mounts and Hawaiian Island chain associated with this volcanic range are formed by a fixed position magmatic hot spot, which has continually spewed molten magma from the earths mantle for the past 70 million years. The Pacific Ocean tectonic plate slides northwest 3-6 inches a year, and this movement creates new volcanic mountains to the Southeast while the older mountains travel farther from their source. . Each Hawaiian island is unique in nature due to its specific age in geologic time. Kauai is the oldest of the eight main islands. Wave action, wind and water erosion have carved once cone shaped volcanoes into what Kauai is today, the lush green Garden Isle.

The powerful low pressure weather systems in the north pacific generate large high interval swells which bombard the Na Pali coastline shaping majestic cliff lines from the oceans edge. The Hawaiian chain also sits in the center of the strongest trade wind belt in the northern hemisphere producing fairly consistent wind direction and speed throughout the year. As warm, moist trade winds reach land they produce rainfall, which overtime has carved Kauai into a masterpiece of physical geography with more abundant fresh water streams than the sum of all other island in the state. Four of the sixteen climates found globally are within the islands 550,000 square miles of terrain. This geographical diversity has proved Kauai is an outdoor adventurers dream destination.

About Patricia Davis

My position as a flight attendant was my chance to travel the world. During those years of flying, I did just that. I was also searching for a place to live after I left the "job". I meant my husband the last few years I was flying. Once I introduced him to Kauai he was hooked. Kauai is truly a special place and so much "softer in feeling" than anywhere else I have ever been. We left the mainland behind and still live in America way out in the ocean blue. Did you know that the Hawaiian Islands are the farthest away from any land mass ?

Patricia Davis purchased this studio in 1992

Why Patricia Davis chose Princeville

Location, Location, Location! Sandpiper village is well cared for and is a cheerful and comfortable spot to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit. I consider it a blessing to live in this remarkable spot.

What makes this studio unique

Restfulness, peacefulness, and the most fun you'll ever have on a tropical island. There is no place like Kauai, just like there is no place like home. The remembrance of Kauai will be your heart for the rest of your life.

Clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Patricia was waiting to greet us upon arrival and showed us where everything was (very helpful!). The studio was as described and was perfect for our Kauai vacation. We used the grill and community pool and hot tub--it was very nice. I would definitely stay here again. Patricia is a wonderful host--she allowed us a later than normal check out because we had a later flight and when she discovered I had forgotten to take home all of my belongings, she contacted me and let me know they were safe and secure and she would send them to me. Mahalo Patricia!

Quiet oasis with all you need.

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely stay on Kauai. In many ways it is nice to not stay at a typical resort or hotel. As has been stated about the property, there is no kitchen. There is however a microwave and coffee maker. Some coffee and fruit was at the place waiting for us when we arrived, which was a lovely touch! It's also good to know that there are two grills at the pool that are hooked up to the gas lines so if you do want to cook, that is an option. Princeville is beautiful and the island itself is gorgeous. Thank you!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here, everything was as described with a wonderful lanai. We arrived late and checking in was a breeze. There was both fresh coffee, yoghurt and fruit for us when we got there. Couldn't ask for more!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Julie! It is important to me that all guests have an easy check-in. I will always meet you and make sure you feel comfortable as you settle in to my Darling Studio. Late night flights seem to be more frequent into Kauai. That means you may be driving to the property in the dark. I send some very comprehensive directions. Everybody has found it so far, and I am only a phone call away. Patricia

Princeville is a premier vacation destination. There has been so much written about the place, that most visitors know what they want to do before they arrive! Walking is free and Princeville offers a wonderful walk and jog path that runs from the Princeville Shopping Center, two miles to the St. Regis Hotel. People rise early to enjoy their morning walk or run. Sandpiper is located about half way between the two. Walk across Ka Haku Rd. and pick up the path in either direction.

Be sure and grab some tourist information at the airport. if there is a very special thing you want to do, such as a Sunset Cruise, be sure and book it the first day you arrive.
