Overview

About the property

3 Master Suites (3 bedrooms w/attached private bathrooms). Sleeps 10.

Located on Punahele Point, one of Princeville's most desirable neighborhoods, Hale Pukana La (the House of Sunlight), offers the ultimate in tropical living! With three master suites, this house is ideal for larger families or couples traveling together. Architectural notes include cathedral ceilings, skylights, ceiling fans in every room and graceful columns surrounding the sunken living room and adjacent family room.

This really is a wonderful house, with fine art, beautiful furniture, and a gourmet kitchen. Two of the suites feature king beds and walk-in closets, the third has a queen bed, and there is a giant bean bag chair that converts into a queen-sized bed in the family room (perfect for kids - or adults - it's really comfortable!), two inflatable queen mattresses, and even a Pack 'N Play for infants. There are five TVs (one in the family room, one in the breakfast nook, and small TVs in each of the bedrooms), three DVD players, a very large assortment of DVDs, several guide books on Kauai, two CD players and a surround-sound Bose system in the living and family rooms. One bathroom features a deep tub and another has a large step-down shower and double sinks. We are the closest house to the path to Queen's Bath and the beautiful waterfalls you pass on the walk down to the ocean - through a gorgeous tropical jungle!

Location is Everything! Hale Pukana La is located on a quiet cul-de-sac above Queen’s Bath, a natural lava pool filled with tropical fish and protected from ocean currents during low tide. The path to Queen’s Bath runs behind the property. It is less than half a mile to the St. Regis Resort with incredible restaurants, a nice bar, breathtaking views, and a gorgeous beach which is open to the public. World-class golf, tennis, island entertainment and idyllic sandy beaches are nearby. There are miles of hiking and bike trails, wildlife refuges and botanical gardens. You can arrange for a private guided jungle hike, waterfall excursion, jeep adventure or helicopter tour. A large playground and the beautiful Princeville library are less than a mile away. The Princeville Shopping Center provides groceries, movie rentals, shops and dining for all tastes. We also have a housekeeper who lives right in Princeville, so she is available to quickly address any issues.

The Fabulous Fun Pack - We Offer Something For Everyone!: What is a “fun pack”? It is all sorts of fun items for your vacation enjoyment: coolers, boogie boards, snorkel sets, a surf board, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, a few bicycles, portable grill, beach bags and mats, plastic glasses for the beach, travel mugs, beach toys, and other items. (The beach items and bikes are kept in the garage.) We also have free WIFI, lots of board games, chess sets, playing cards and puzzles in the dining room closet, and a hammock and gas grill available for your use at the house. There are five TVs (one in the family room, one in the breakfast nook and small TVs in each bedroom), three DVD players, a large assortment of DVDs, a few music CDs, a Hawaiian cook book, lots of novels to borrow, and a few tourist books on Kauai. Items do change due to guest use, but the number of fun items only increases over time! This will save you time, energy and money - no need to bring these items from home or rent them on the island!

We also provide free high speed wireless internet. There is a nice desk in one of the master bedrooms, complete with a printer and copier just in case you have to do a little work while in paradise (like I sometimes do...!). There is a gourmet kitchen complete with a Belgium waffle maker, coffee grinder, crock pot, high end cookware, vegetable steamer, blenders, a double oven, and two rice cookers. Eat in the formal dining room or in the kitchen nook. We also have a large gas grill, seating for eight, and a comfortable hammock outside. There is a Jacuzzi tub in one of the bathrooms and a step down shower in another. Hale Pukana La caters to many tastes - with something for everyone! This is paradise!

About Anna Graves

Our family loves to travel - but there is no place we love more than Kauai! My husband and I stayed on Kauai on our honeymoon, took a timeshare tour to get discounts on helicopter rides, kayak rentals, horseback excursions, etc., and wound up buying the timeshare. We returned to Kauai every year after that and realized we loved it so much, we had to buy a house on the North Shore. A few months later we became the delighted owners of Hale Pukana La in Princeville. It is a magical place and we know you will love it as much as we do!

Anna Graves purchased this house in 2005

Location

Car: recommended

Welcome to Paradise! From the house you can easily walk to Queen's Bath, a unique, naturally-formed lava pool filled with tropical fish, or drive to gorgeous nearby beaches or the charming, artistic town of Hanalei. Local activities include golf at the famed Princeville courses, swimming, surfing, hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, horseback riding, zodiac tours of the majestic Na Pali coast, tennis, boating, whale watching (Dec - May), kayaking on the placid waters of the Wailua River, helicopter tours, wind surfing and zip-lining. Golfers know that the Prince Course is rated by many as the No. 1 course in Hawaii, and the newly renovated Makai Course is getting rave reviews since it reopened! Other attractions include many wonderful restaurants, local artists, historic Hawaiian sites, stunning sunsets, breathtaking waterfalls, traditional luaus, and visits to Waimea Canyon, known as the Grand Canyon of the the Pacific. Your vacation here is almost unlimited!

One of our favorite beaches on the North Shore is Ke’e Beach which is at the end of Route 560. Ke’e is in Ha’ena State Park and is great for swimming and snorkeling - often with sea turtles!

The house itself is truly beautiful with fine art, comfortable furniture and a wonderful location. Here are some extras that set us apart:

*We have a housekeeper who lives in Princeville, so she is readily available if there are any unexpected problems.

*We have a large kitchen stocked with all sorts of items which allow you to be a gourmet chef while on vacation, including a variety of spices, oils and salts. There are local farmers' markets all over the island to supply - and inspire! - you.

*We provide a full size washer and dryer, detergent and bleach for your use, and an ironing board and iron for those nights you will be visiting one of the incredible local restaurants. We recommend Bar Acuda, the Hanalei Dolphin, Bouchon, Neide's Salsa and Samba, and Postcards for dinner, Tropical Taco, Bubba's Burgers, and The Mediterranean Gourmet for lunch, and the Hanalei Wake-Up Cafe for breakfast. Live music - and great drinks - are featured several nights a week at Tahiti Nui.

Great home for a Kauai vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Hale Pukana La had everything we needed for a great week in Kauai! Located right next to Queen's bath and a short distance to Hanalei. The kitchen was stocked with all the kitchen gadgets. Anna was very accommodating and I would definitely stay here again!

Hale Pukana La

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful home. Everything is just like you see in the pictures. The kitchen had everything that we needed. The home was spacious and the three bedrooms were perfect. The location is beautiful with amazing sunsets rights across the street. Queen's Bath was breathtaking, and there are many shopping/restaurants near by. We can't wait to come back!

Loved this place !! And the AC! :)

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property with lots of open space for the family to gather and hang out. The rooms are air conditioned, which was great ! The house was fully equipped. Another plus to the house was it was very close to queens bath ! Super convenient because the parking situation there becomes tricky. It was great to just leave the car in the driveway and walk to the path. Loved everything.

Anna was a pleasure to work with and made everything super easy. Thank you for everything.

Great time. This was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

First time renting a home. This was a great experience. Great neighborhood. We didn't spend a lot of time at the house during the day. Was on the go during the day. The list of restaurants was spot on. Food was outstanding. The fun closet was use on a daly basis. Backyard was also a beautiful place as well. Three bedrooms and three bathrooms was the nice. Everybody was ready to go no waiting. We had a great time.

Great stay for couples vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our 3 couples get-away vacation! Very spacious and well equipped, particularly the kitchen. Our group very much appreciated the detail provided by the owner about what to do in the area for fun and dining. The house gets a bit warm in the afternoons, but the spacious and very cool backyard (lots of shade in the afternoon/evening), and the air conditioners in the bedrooms make up for it. We would happily stay here again. Thank you Anna!

Beautiful home in golf course neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This home was great four our family of 5 + an infant. The baby had lots of space to run around in, inside and out. Queen's Bath path starts immediately next door, which was a great family adventure. Anna, the owner, was extremely responsive and helpful as we planned out the details of our trip and had lots of questions for her. The house was in great order and every set up as explained. The kitchen was extremely well-stocked with appliances, which we really enjoyed as we cooked our family meals together. Thanks for an amazing vacation!
