ABSOLUTELY DIRECT OCEANFRONT. GORGEOUS SPA. FALL ON SALE! CHRISTMAS CANCELLATION

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

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

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 gentle sound of surf breaking on coral in the pristine bay below - and delighted by the stunning ocean views from virtually every room.

Why stay here? You could choose a property at the beach - but you would be very unlikely to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet, or the breathtaking views, found on this unique oceanfront bluff.

Why Surf Song? Well, you may never want to leave the 1200-square foot tropical hardwood oceanfront lanai. There is not only an unbroken ocean vista, but a unique perspective above the sand, clear water and coral of the beautiful bay below. Sailboats and traditional Hawaiian canoes pass by. Dolphins frolic and turtles surf in the bay. Ocean rainbows amaze. In winter magnificent humpback whales breach offshore here. (We have tripod-mounted and hand-held binoculars). Albatross teach their young to fly from the surrounding bluffs. (They court and nest right in neighborhood). In summer, both sunrise and sunset may be enjoyed from the lanai.

Guests can now enjoy a soothing soak and a real massage in the his and hers loungers of the Dimension 1 Amore Bay Spa on the oceanfront lanai. They are said to be among the world's best Spas.

And what better place to relax and linger than 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.

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 bedroom furniture is from the Tommy Bahama island estate collection.

All new Tommy Bahama living room furnishings have just 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.

Concierge services are available to assist with the many activities nearby. These include: Swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, windsurfing,golf, tennis, horseback riding, boat tours of Na Pali, sport fishing, helicopter flightseeing tours, luaus, golfing and shopping.

(The secluded bay below the property may be accessed by footpath from a neighboring road, though the path is steep in places and at times slippery. We recommend the many easily accessible lifeguarded beaches nearby.)

The following guest reviews are on file with our former on- island agents:

Linda B., Santa Rosa, CA 11/09/2013

Views are unsurpassed both from inside the house and from the large lovely deck. We enjoyed hearing the surf at night-very relaxing. Lots of room for individual activities.

Steve and MaryJo K., North Platte, NE 11/14/2013

Beautiful views. Nice location and neighborhood. Privacy, comfort and space. 'Home away from home.'

Brad E., Hayden Lake, ID 11/14/2013

Great view and sounds of the ocean! Very clean with plenty of linens available.

About Simon Lord

We're 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! Anna and Alexandra 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 it's 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. Kauai's 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...

Magnificent vacation

  • 5 out 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 out 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...!

Beautiful home, wonderful views, great owner!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at Surf Song the last 10 days in July. At the outset of our stay our host made sure to mention that he was a new owner and if there were any issues whatsoever, to mention them and he would personally attend to them. His intent was to make sure that the expectations of our stay “were exceeded in every way” – he certainly delivered.

The property is beautiful and we found the location to be ideal. We spent most of our time on the island hiking and beaching on the north shore and the east shore of the island. Princeville is centrally located and easily accessible to both. The home was well stocked with just about everything we needed for the beach including: towels, a cooler, an umbrella, chairs, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, 2 surfboards, and even a couple wetsuits. We used the bikes to explore the neighborhood and for short trips to the grocery store. The new ping pong table was used for family tournaments in the evening and we used the new hot tub to relax after our hikes. A NanaWall (bi-fold glass panel wall) was recently installed that extends the entire length of the living room. When open, the living room becomes part of the deck overlooking the Pacific. It was an absolutely beautiful setting for our family activities.
The home was in the final stages of renovation during our stay and there were workers there occasionally but they were discrete and usually only there when we were away. Simon, the owner, kept us well informed and went out of his way to make sure that their schedule worked around ours. We’re looking forward to seeing the completed renovation during our next trip to Kauai.
Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: A real pleasure of renting Surf Song is turning out to be meeting the lovely people who stay with us. Thank you, Randy and family. You were perfect guests. I was touched when the whole family came out to help me choose the right bowls for the rain chains and appreciated your patience with such things as the new ping pong table being so new that you had to wait for me to assemble it. We have now completed our renovations and are delighted that you are planning on coming back to stay. We will try to exceed your expectations again!

Amazing views, super relaxing holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We had an amazing time at Kauai and will definitely be back! The house has a fantastic view over the ocean and we saw dolphins several times plus the Osprey flew over regularly and were walking around in the street with their babies.

We had 2 couples staying in the house plus a 3 year old and there was more than enough room for everyone. The house is quite well equipped and it was great to be able to borrow beach chairs, bicycles etc... The spa and huge deck are also a big bonus plus the beds are super comfortable. There is a huge ocean view from 2 of the 3 bedrooms as well as from all living areas. It kind of feels like the house is actually over the ocean. The owner of the property was very accommodating and a beautiful basket of fruit and chocolates was waiting for us when we arrived.

For us the only negative aspect was that you had to drive most places so if you have more than 1 couple / family in the house then I would definitely recommend a car per couple. On the other hand, if you are a golf nut then you never have to drive anywhere because the golf course is just at the end of the street. There was also a really good kids playground about a 15 min walk away.

I can't say enough for Kauai as a relaxing holiday destination. Surfing, awesome yoga (Yoga Hanalei), hiking, beautiful beaches and an endless supply of fish tacos!

We travel a lot and I have to say this is the most relaxing holiday we have had in a very long time.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kat and family. We’re delighted you guys had a great time.

May is our "upgrade" month. It's in full swing now as we install a new quartz kitchen and await the shipment of a house full of luxurious Tommy Bahama furniture among many other items, to move from "quite well" to "beautifully equipped" for our future guests.

It’s true that with so much to see on the North shore, driving often ends up being part of the experience. We tend to pick beaches by the day according to what we want to do. But as you say golf (and tennis) are very close indeed, as is the lovely cove below the house if you’re okay with a path that is steep and/or slippery in places. The Princeville shops and facilities are a very short drive away, or bike-able.

The amazing birds are albatross. This year’s ball of fluff babies now look about the size of turkeys! Still just as adorable though, as they wait in the grass on our street for their parents’ daily food deliveries.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the improved Surf Song.

Aloha,
Simon and family

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
Property was an absolute dream. The house is unbelievable and was everything I was looking for and more. From the gorgeous sunrise/sunsets to the endless views off the beautiful deck. Whale sightings were an everyday occurrence, and the soothing sounds of the ocean made for the most relaxing evenings. Owner was a pleasure to deal with and very prompt with any questions I had before, during and after our stay. Very close to shopping, beaches, restaurants, hiking trails and much more.

Surf Song Review

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a wonderful week at Surf Song. The home is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and is above a small beach. The view from the lanai is spectacular, we saw whales every day. Princeville is a great location, Hanalei is a short drive and the NaPali Coast not much further. The owner is easy to work with and his local manager responds promptly if needed.

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.
