Overview

About the property

Located on the Princeville Resort Makai Golf Course, this peaceful, Hawaiian style 600 Sq Ft condo has a private lanai, dedicated parking and a pool on site. Between the golf course and the lanai is the Queen's Carriage tree tunnel trail where you can walk in about 5 minutes to a secluded stretch of Anini Beach where you can swim and snorkel. Numerous world class surf spots including Hanalei Bay, Anini Beach, and Kalihiwai Beach are a 10 minute drive. You can walk to the Princeille Shopping Center, the Princeville Library, or the park in 10 minutes or less.



Recently remodeled with a brand new bathroom and kitchen, new furniture and Island style décor, this is one of the better deals in Princeville. There is a privacy wall by the bed separating the bed from the living area. The kitchen has a dishwasher, a washer & drier, an electric stove, a microwave, a coffee maker, a blender, and a toaster and is stocked with a variety of kitchen utensils, place settings for 8, and a full size refrigerator. We are located in the back of Paniolo in one of the most peaceful locations. Our quaint condo is the perfect romantic getaway for couples.

About Ward & Paula Smith

I have been surfing since 1961 and still surf about 200 days per year. I retired from Santa Cruz City Schools in June of 2010. I like to surf, read, garden, and work on projects on the 10 ares where I live in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Paula is also retired and likes reading, a variety of crafts, walking, and the lounging around the tropics (which works for me). We both love to travel.

Why Ward & Paula Smith chose Princeville

We love the North Shore of Kauai which is amazingly green, littered with spectacular waterfalls, blessed with a slow pace, and still somewhat rural. It also has some of the best surf spots and beaches in the world. We were looking for a quiet and peaceful condo on the North Shore within walking distance of the beach and a short jaunt to a variety of surf spots. We also appreciate that is is less than 40 miles from the airport and the town of Lihue.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is in the back of our small complex off of the street. We enjoy sitting on our peaceful lanai with beautiful views of the golf course in the foreground and mountains in the background. Fifteen feet from our lanai, there is a dirt, tree-lined pathway that leads to a relatively secluded beach which we can walk to in about 5 minutes. We can also walk to Princeville shopping center in about 10 minutes and drive to Hanalei bay in less than 10 minutes. We often hang around the lovely pool located 50 feet from the front door of our condo. On Friday afternoons we often drive 5 minutes to the Hanalei Bay Resort to listen to Hawaiian music during happy hour.

Super location, walk to beach, all amenities, clean & easy.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage style accommodations- facing golf course. Easy walk to ocean - hike path to Wyllie Beach. Close to Queens Bath. Covered porch perfect for morning coffee, with the sound of roosters.

We didn’t utilize the pool - too many beautiful beaches close by.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a great home away from home. Ward and Paula have put a lot of thought into what one might need while vacationing there and were so nice to deal with. The kitchen is beautiful and well stocked. What a treat to have laundry right in the condo. Beautiful view of the golf course and surrounding area from the lanai. A very comfortable bed was so welcome after a busy day of exploring the area. Would love to stay there again and would definitely recommend it to others!

Nice, affordable vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

A good location for exploring the north shore! This had plenty of space for 2 people and I loved the full kitchen. The owners are very responsive and helpful too.

I recommend bringing earplugs if you are a light sleeper as the window shutters let some sound through and the Kauai roosters (which are all over the island) will wake you up in the early morning! (Not a problem if you want to get up and go hiking though.)

Exactly as described -- clean, well located, perfect for couple

  • 5 of 5

Location: Right in Princeville, which is a community predominantly of resorts and vacation homes. Short walk to an "okay" beach and short drives to awesome beaches with great surf and restaurants / grocery stores

Amenities: Full kitchen has everything you'll need unless you're Wolfgang Puck, bathroom is very nice. Boogie board, beach chairs and coolers are available for day trips to the beach. Bedroom and living room are basically one large room with a divider -- but it works. TV has cable, wifi is robust. Parking 50 feet from unit. We used a small propane grill for veggie burgers and hot dogs.

Check-in / out: Really easy with a lockbox

"Wake up calls" : you don't need to worry about oversleeping as the local roosters will rouse you about 530am. For folks coming from the mainland it's actually helpful to maintain "lower 48 hours" and Kauai is about day activities vs nightlife anyway.
