Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Princeville - Surf Song

4 Bedrooms / 2 full + half Baths, Spectacular views from Oceanfront Lanai

“…Heavenly. We could not have found a better spot for a family holiday on Kauai”.

(When the bi-fold glass panel wall is open) "The living room becomes part of the deck overlooking the Pacific. It was an absolutely beautiful setting for our family activities".

"There is a huge ocean view from 2 bedrooms as well as from all living areas. It kind of feels like the house is actually over the ocean".

Whale sightings were an everyday occurrence, and the soothing sounds of the ocean made for the most relaxing evenings.”

Were not saying this; our guests are in the reviews below. Check out our all-new professional, un-retouched photographs, and see for yourself how spectacular Surf Song really is.

Surf Song is, simply, a fantastic place to stay. When you first arrive at the very end of your peaceful, exclusive cul-de-sac and glimpse the fabulous location of Surf Song and the ocean beyond, you will know that you chose wisely. On entering the home, you will be greeted by the expansive ocean view shared by almost all the rooms in the house, and the gentle sound of surf breaking on coral in the pristine bay below.

Why stay here? You could choose a property down at the beach - but you would be unlikely to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet, or the breathtaking views, found on this unique oceanfront bluff. And the path to the beautiful and little used beach below the house begins a two minute walk from the property (about 10 minutes to walk down to the beach from the house in all. )

Dolphins and turtles may be seen up close in the bay - the turtles actually surf sometimes! In winter magnificent humpback whales breach offshore here. (We have tripod-mounted and hand-held binoculars). Albatross court and nest right in neighborhood and teach their young to fly from the surrounding bluffs. In summer, both sunrise and sunset may be enjoyed from the lanai. Sip coffee and watch the dawn. At sunset, enjoy a tropical beverage and watch the changes in light. In the evening, dine al fresco under a spectacular canopy of stars, all with the sights, sounds and fresh air of the ocean filling your senses.

Enjoy a soothing soak and a real massage in the custom his and hers loungers of the new Dimension 1 Amore Bay Spa, said to be among the worlds best.

The living room, all new kitchen, and dining areas also enjoy spectacular direct ocean vistas. The master and second bedrooms share these views, and all bedrooms give the wonderful experience of being lulled to sleep by the sounds of surf and palm trees in the breeze. Dawn brings a chorus of birdsong from the hill below the house.

Inside the bright, open 2300 square-foot home you will find a layout centered on an expansive living room the centre point of which is a fully screened Nana wall which opens fully to the ocean side lanai. The gleaming, all new adjacent kitchen with cafee cabinets and white quartz counters allows the chef to join in the fun.

Two bedrooms and a full bathroom with tropical shower share the West side of the house. The master bedroom and ensuite full bathroom enjoy ocean frontage on the East side. The fourth bedroom with Twin beds is also on the East side and faces the garden on two sides.

All new Tommy Bahama furnishings have recently arrived! A wine fridge has been added to the kitchen. Our aim is simple...to be the best.

Surrounded by nature though it is, Surf Song lies only a few minutes’ drive on quiet, private roads from all of Princeville’s superb amenities.

This is our home, found after years of searching on the islands. It is the loveliest place to be that we know. We welcome you to it with Aloha. Our mission is to ensure that, like us, having discovered it you will want to return again and again.

Relax in the knowledge that unlike some offerings, this is a long-established, licensed vacation rental in the Princeville Visitor Designated Area with a caring and involved owner and under the scrupulous professional management of the Principal Broker of a local real estate office (who manages only a very few select properties) together with a dedicated professional team of cleaner, groundskeeper and maintenance personnel. We all care very much about your vacation rental experience, as the 5 star reviews show.

Concierge services available include: Private chef, massage, yoga, and private tours or assistance with the best booking of all Kauais attractions such as horseback riding, boat tours of Na Pali, sport fishing, helicopter flightseeing tours, luaus, and golfing.

About Simon Lord

Were a dad plus four family with ages from 11 up. Simon started professional life as a British barrister and has practiced as an attorney in Calgary, Canada for .... too long! The girls work in the hotel industry and property management respectively in British Columbia and the boys are in school. We come to Surf Song with a whole range of perspectives but we all think its the best place in the world!

We just purchased, so this listing is new, hence the lack of reviews. We are determined to exceed your expectations and make your experience completely positive. We think the repeat guests ….and the positive reviews... will follow!

Simon Lord purchased this house in 2013

Why Simon Lord chose Princeville

After several years of serious looking throughout the islands, the decision to buy this property was instant. It was simply the best property we had ever seen. Kauais North Shore eclipses in beauty anything we know and has so many wonderful beaches, but the land largely consists of a flat bench ending in an oceanfront bluff. Few private homes are located on the bluff, while even fewer look directly down onto a beach, coral and surf. We are sure you will agree that Surf Song is rare and stunning.

We had rented frequently on the North Shore before we made this purchase. We found being up on the bluff much more private and quiet than being right by the beach - and we love the views.

We also came to appreciate the many different micro micro climates of the North Shore. Trade winds freshen and reduce humidity. Rainfall is often less away from the mountains - yet some beach areas are very close to them and as a result, we feel, may be more humid.

We felt that the right ocean bluff home could offer a perfect combination of almost constant breezes and lower rainfall, of peace and convenience. We think we found it!

Surf Song does all this in a timeless, classic Plantation style which invites elegant, easy living and an open plan which celebrates the beauty of its environment and invites in the perfect climate outside.

For us it was love at first sight! We've seen our guests react in the same way. We hope you will too.

What makes this house unique

The sound of surf as you approach the house - and throughout it. Ocean views from the front door to the master bathroom. The expansive tropical hardwood oceanfront deck offering both Sun and Shade at most times of the year as well as a tranquil shaded rear Lanai.

A bright open floor plan with room for everyone and separation between the master suite on the East side of the home and the bedrooms on the West side. The experience of beauty, nature and peace.

Dolphins and turtles year-round, whales and albatross in winter, stunning summer light. A heaven full of stars.

Exceptional Home, Beautiful Views, and Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

I like to spend my birthday in Hawaii every year (January in SF isn't the best) and this year my partner and I, along with two other couples, had a spectacular stay in Surf Song. From the moment we booked the house the owner, Simon, was very responsible and friendly.

The house is exceptional. I've rented quite a few ocean front places in Kauai and this was one of the nicest, hands down. To say the home has expansive ocean views would be an understatement. The wide sliding doors in the living room open all the way up onto the huge deck, which feels like it's floating above the water. Although the house is high enough up to see the earth curve at the horizon, it's still close enough to the lovely secluded beach below that the sound of the ocean is pronounced throughout the house.

Unlike some homes, we had everything we needed. Myself and one of my friends are both big foodies and the kitchen, though compact, is well stocked. We spent several days during the week enjoying the house, the porch, the hot tub, and the beach below without ever leaving the property, which I would highly recommend. Between beach towels, snorkeling gear, and not to forget beer coozies all the way from Canada -- the house has what we needed.

Inside and out, the home is beautiful. Floors are nice and clean, beautiful white walls and exposed ceiling beams highlight the natural wood tones and really complement the blue of the ocean and green the plant life perfect. Outside, the grounds are nicely maintained and we really enjoyed the one brief rain shower we experienced. There's loads of wonderful animal life around and, as I'm a bit of a nature photographer, I enjoyed getting shots of whales, beautiful tropical birds, and a constant population of albatross whizzing by.

I was a bit nervous about how walkable Princeville would be after being spoiled outside Kapa'a last year. I was pleasantly surprised, between the hotels and resorts there are few delicious restaurants within a reasonable stroll from the house. In conclusion, this home is at the top of my list for repeat visits to Kauai and, despite the competition this will undoubtedly cause for my next booking, it should be on yours as well!

Secluded Cove

  • 5 of 5

We completely agree with Randy and Wilcox. Although this home is in a "neighborhood" the beautiful lanai provides relaxing seclusion. The view is spectacular. We really didn't want to leave and grilled fabulous fish from the Fish Market several nights.

Incredible Oceanfront Home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing and beautiful home with a huge main room with spectacular ocean view! The Lanai runs the entire length of the house, so relaxing to sit and hear the waves crash on the shore. The location is easy to access and in my opinion, the North Shore of Kauai is the best place to stay! Minutes away from world class golf courses! Peaceful and quiet neighborhood. I would highly recommend this property for a very relaxing vacation! Far exceeded expectations! Hope to go back and stay there again one day! The owner was great to work with.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

What an amaizing house in a great location. I recently stayed here with my wife on our Honeymoon and we could not have had a better time. I am a travel professional and my company books travel for Honeymooners all the time. I will be sending my clients to this property. The owner is helpful and and accomodating, local contacts are also wonderful and they work hard to make sure you enjoy your stay. The home is impecably clean and easy to get around. It is a great place for young and also for older couples since it is all on one level. A great neighborhood setting makes you comfortable to walk or run in the mornings after a stretch on the beautiful back patio. Great instructions and reccomendations in the home booklet to ensure you can use all of the home systems. I can't stay enough good things aobut the home and our stay. We can't wait to go back and visit!

Magnificent vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved this home. The view was spectacular and the owner, Simon, was especially gracious. His staff was very welcoming and helpful in booking activities and giving us valuable insight regarding attractions. I would love to return one day and will always cherish the moments spent there.

An exceptional property

  • 5 of 5

Our recent ( July ) stay at Surf Song was heavenly. We could not have found a better spot for a family holiday on Kauai. We were a group of 8 - mum and dad and 3 (blended family) thirtysomething couples.

The house is beautifully situated. As described- there is nothing between you and the wide open ocean vistas. The extraordinary view draws you in the moment you open the door. The outlook is dramatic- looking out to the horizon or down to the tranquil bay below.

The house and deck are airy, open and uncluttered. We opened the nana wall first thing in the morning and enjoyed the breezes off the ocean all day long. The furnishings- both indoor and out- are tasteful, clean, and comfortable. There was everything we needed- enough lounging space, enough dining space, enough cooking space. Even with 8 of us milling about, the house always felt wide open and expansive. We stayed home for dinner most nights as it was more fun to stay home and relax in the incredible setting. The kitchen is well equipped. There is all the cookware one needs plus attractive dishes, glasses and cutlery. Nice to have when you are staying for more than a day or two. The local property manager and owner were accessible and available when we had a question. We experienced some lapses in the internet service- but felt the manager was doing everything to help. We appreciated the “can do” attitude and willingness to make our stay perfect.

The convenience of lots of beach towels, a huge TV (we watched the World Cup final), music, laundry, BBQ, bicycles, hot tub- I could go on but you get the picture-made the holiday carefree. Surf Song is a beautiful spot...I hope we return for a reunion. Oh, and we did have an engagement! Sunset, champagne, a ring...memorable...!

Nearest Airport
29 Miles
Nearest Beach
1 Miles
Car: recommended

Serene and private location at the very end of an exclusive private road, yet within walking, biking or short driving distance by private roads of Princeville's many amenities.

Several beaches are similarly close, while many more lie within a 10 to 15 minute drive including life guarded beaches with vehicle access.

It is hard to overstate the abundance and quality of outdoor leisure activities within a short drive of the house. Shopping, yoga, massage, dining in a large variety of restaurants and bars and entertainment are close at hand.

You may find however that you share our reluctance to leave Surf Song and that much time is spent enjoying the amenities of the house and the spectacular beauty of the oceanfront Lanai.
