Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Princeville - Hale Pukana La

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! Situated on a bluff above the ocean, the house features distant, partial ocean views from the front and back yards. 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 from 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 Closet - We Offer Something For Everyone!: What is a “fun closet”? It is where we keep 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

KAUAI BEAUTY

  • 5 of 5

WE HAD THE PLEASURE OF STAYING IN THIS BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED HOME THAT HAS ALL YOU COULD POSSIBLY WANT IN THE WAY OF HOUSEHOLD AMMENITIES AND EQUIPMENT FOR THE BEACH.

IT IS WALKING DISTANCE TO THE ST. REGIS HOTEL AND IS A VERY SHORT DRIVE TO THE PRINCEVILLE SHOPPING CENTER AND THE TOWN OF HANALEI.

IF YOU WANT TO EXPLORE THE NORTH SHORE OF KAUAI THIS IS YOUR PLACE

Amazing home with three master bedrooms!

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly and described. The pictures were spot on! We enjoyed relaxing in the home and exploring the island. We fell in love with a private spot on Annini beach and made friends with the chickens. Spending time with family was special and the three couples each had their own master suite/bathroom with was a bonus. We cooked several days-the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed...even spices and condiments.

Luxury home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Hale Pukana La was very comfortable and luxurious. Its location was excellent...right by the Queen's Bath trailhead but sheided from activity there by a retaining wall. Across the street is a fine spot from which to view the sunset. It's also convenient to Princeville restaurants and centrally located on Kauai's north shore. The kitchen was very well equipped, and there was a good supply of beach gear in the garage. Only additional thing I could have wanted was a covered lanai in the back yard, but the table umbrella enabled us to have shady alfresco breakfasts.

Wonderful location for our trip

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family. The listing description was very accurate and a beauriful location to the water. We were attending a destination wedding for my nephew (my sister's youngest son). The ceremony was at Tunnels beach and reception - catamaran cruise off the southern coast of Kauai.

The accommodation were perfect for my family- son, girlfriend, daughter, her husband, my husband and myself. It was convenient to all the attractions we wanted to see, easy to have breakfast together and actually cooked several dinners at home. The gas grill is new and worked like a charm.

We had some birthdays to celebrate during our stay and our host provided several restaurants that we might like based on our requirements. We were not disappointed in her suggestions.

I would definitely come back and stay here on our next trip.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Hale Pukana La! What a beautiful place! Thank you to Hugh and Anna! I think one of the highlights for me personally was going down the trail by the house in the mornings and watching the sea turtles come in with the tide so the location of the house was ideal. I'm sure if we had stayed elsewhere, we would've visited Queen's Bath are only once but since we were so close, I loved going down a few times and watching turtles. I could've watched them all day! We stayed in a nice home on Oahu but it was pretty cramped quarters so when we got to Hale Pukana La we were all in heaven with so much room! Thank you again! We truly loved Kauai and our accommodations were such a big part of that!

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights with my elderly in-laws, young adult daughter, wife and myself. The house is in a great location in Princeville; handy to everything we wanted to do; Restaurants and shopping a short drive (or bike ride) away. If you like to run/jog/walk there are ample local trails around the adjacent golf course. The home is spacious, very well decorated, and comfortable... it was especially well suited for my elderly father in-law who finds stairs and other obstacles a challenge. There is lots of beach/play equipment ready to use which is a bonus. I know the home description has most of those details, and home lives up to its billing. Will definitely consider staying here again next time we visit Kaui'i.

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 limited only by your imagination!

Other Activities: The house 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, Hanalei Gourmet, 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.
