Overview

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

4 Bedrooms / 2 full + half Baths, Spectacular, Full on Ocean Views and Ambiance

“…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, private yoga on the Lanai, and private tours or assistance with the best booking of all Kauai's attractions such as horseback riding, boat tours of Na Pali, sport fishing, helicopter flight-seeing tours, luaus, and golfing.

(Please note: Neighbors' construction is completely finished, both house and landscaping. No noise, just great neighbors and a discreet, low-lying one storey home. Our ocean views are unobstructed. All photos shown were taken after neighbors' construction was finished).

About Simon Lord

Were a dad plus four family with ages from 12 up. Simon started professional life as a British barrister and has practiced as an attorney in Calgary, Canada for .... too long! The girls work property management 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.

Escape….Calm….Bliss...

Beautiful home, panoramic views, and a private beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Surf Song! Our group all agreed that this vacation rental was even better than our high expectations from the photos.

The private beach below is beautiful and serene. However, the short hike to it requires proper shoes (no sandals) and can be a little treacherous after any rain, so plan accordingly.

As for the home itself, it's absolutely beautiful and has an amazing panoramic view of the ocean. The furniture and decor are luxurious and tasteful, and from the high-end electronics, to the huge spa on the deck, to the bikes and beach gear in the garage, it was so comfortable and convenient. One highlight of the trip was using the telescope there to spot the Galilean moons of Jupiter, as the stars fill the sky at night!

Sensational Surf Song

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a one week stay at Surf Song in Princeville. I absolutely could not have been more thrilled!

This home is an absolute dream come true. We have stayed in three different homes on Kauai - all of which were beautiful - but this is our favorite. I'll start with the lanai - which is a room in and of itself. We spent more time on the lanai than any other room in the house. Huge and fabulous with the view of Sea Lodge Beach below, the soothing sound of the surf is your constant companion. We were able to watch the whales breach, the sunrise, and gaze at the stars at night. Peaceful and seeming very private, even with the neighbors beside you it feels very secluded. The bonus to this marvelous lanai is the fold-out doors from the living room that makes the living room and lanai feel like one enormous space. The furniture is new and beautiful and there is a big screen TV that we utilized to watch Go Pro videos of our adventures of the day.

The open floor plan made you feel a part of the action or conversation while working in the kitchen - which had every utensil needed to prepare a meal to enjoy at the house. We opted to stay in for several meals simply to enjoy Surf Song. The bedrooms were nicely furnished with comfortable beds - and beds are a major concern for me! We loved the view from our master double shower and the outdoor shower was an enjoyable feature for some.

The trade winds blow comfortably through the house to keep you cool, the we loved the bright open feeling with wood ceilings and white paneled walls.

Other bonuses were the well-equipped garage with snorkeling gear, ping pong tables, beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes and much, much more. We didn't have to rent anything for our excursions because the house included all we needed and wanted. Even fishing rods and reels!

Simon was absolutely wonderful to work with and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Well, we certainly did. I can't think of anything I would change. This was a dream trip and Surf Song made it even more memorable.

I cannot recommend this house more highly!

Gorgeous view, beautiful house - loved Surf Song!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Simon's house as part of a family reunion celebrating my mother in law's 70th birthday. What a great house. The layout was perfect for us plus four boys aged 17-10. House was well stocked with everything - bikes, surfboards, boogie boards, sand toys, chairs, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed spending much of the day sitting on the deck and staring at the ocean...we were frequently rewarded by seeing dolphins or whales swim by. We would absolutely stay at the house again...loved it!!!

Amazing home for a fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

Surf Song is a beautiful home with an unbelievable view of the ocean. The house is just as advertised, very well maintained with great amenities and supplies to get you going. Simon, the owner, was excellent and prompt with all communication prior to rental. Bill, the house manager, was on hand to show us how everything worked and available to answer our questions when needed. We enjoyed watching the whales from the house and lanai, we saw whale activity most days of our week long trip. We would definitely recommend this house to family and friends. We hope to return ourselves someday.

Gorgeous Spring Break Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about Surf Song. We are frequent visitors to the islands, but we usually stay in hotel suites. We decided to rent a home and renting Surf Song was the best decision we made. The views are amazing. Sleeping to the sound of the waves ideal. Amenities are nearby at the St. Regis and at the Princeville Shopping Center. My son and his friends (ages 6-9) loves the park nearby and the hot tub. You have to drive to a swimmable beach, but the view is worth it! We are already planning our next trip.

Owner's Response: Thanks for a great review, Tanya. We are delighted that you are planning to come back and would love to welcome you again. Just for clarification, we do have precise directions at the house for walking to Sealodge beach below the house and only a few minutes away. As with many Hawaiian beaches, whether it is swimmable depends on weather and tide. It's a very sheltered beach but it is shallow as the reef comes in very close to shore, so more suitable for snorkelling than swimming when the tide is low. We now have bikes with gears at the house in addition to the cruiser bikes, making for short, easy and enjoyable bicycle rides along private Princeville roads and bike paths to the pathways down from Princeville to many beaches including Anini and Hideaways.

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!

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.
