About the property

House,3 Bedrooms 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Peace, privacy and comfort are offered at the Ocean Pool House, Princeville, on Kauai’s stunning North Shore. Situated on a cul-de-sac and centrally located, yet with a tucked away feeling, nature’s beauty surrounds the Ocean Pool House. Hear the crashing waves below this 3 bedroom (King, Queen, 2 Twins or King), 2 bath, private vacation getaway. Watch the waves roll across the ocean, enjoy the surrounds of the tropical ravine and landscape, and the albatross that surround the house as they court, nest, and raise their chicks. Perched on the ocean bluffs the Ocean Pool House is a subtly elegant home located in a quiet neighborhood setting.

The Ocean Pool House is well equipped and conveniently outfitted with more than is needed to enjoy this home away from home. The bathrooms have fresh tile work and granite accents and the master bedroom opens out to a private and comfortably furnished courtyard setting. With full kitchen and dining area, comfortable den with TV/cable/DVD and high speed internet, this house has room for all to be together and many comfy corners to spread out as well. These spacious living areas open out to the poolside & barbeque living space with the refreshing view and tropical breezes. Relaxation and enjoyment are easily inspired beside the generously sized, beautifully tiled, salt water, private swimming pool and adjacent hot tub. The pleasing esthetics of the slate granite poolside are complimented by the gas barbecue just waiting to grill your “catch of the day”.

Tropically inspired and well manicured, this is a great neighborhood for taking family walks, bike rides, or going out for an early morning run.

Located in Princeville, on the beautiful north shore of Kauai, the Ocean Pool House is convenient to restaurants, shopping, Makai and Prince golf courses, tennis courts, children’s park, spa and other health services.

Anini Beach, Kalihiwai, Hanalei Bay, Lumahai and Tunnels beach are all just minutes away by car, along with many other prominent landmarks and world class views, well worth visiting.

This could become your new family tradition!

Great home with all needed amenities

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home rental in Princeville since we were planning a stay in Kauai for 2.5 weeks. This home was perfect and service even better. The house was spotless upon our arrival and the location was exactly what were looking for. A nice quiet and secluded beach a short walk away. Pool and hot tub were well maintained and the warm outdoor shower was a nice touch.

The coffee pot provided was leaking and immediately we called the property manager (Samantha) who promptly brought us a new one the next day. We appreciated not being without our morning coffee!! Overall, great experience and we would highly recommend it to our friends. Property is kept up well and professionally managed by a service minded company

Lovely pool, nice home, great location

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house, 3B, 2b. Quite 1970s in look and feel, but a great location and fantastic pool, which meant a lot when our week was so rainy. Easy to get to Princeville Center, Kileaua, Anini Beach, St. Regis Hotel, and Hanalei. View of the ocean is minimal, and it really isn't visible from the house, but only the pool area. Kitchen is small, but works for a small group. Having to leave the key in the keybox each time is a bit annoying, though, and there are a few maintenance tasks that should be taken care of to improve the experience. But if you want a pool (really hard to find!) and a great location, this is a wonderful place to stay.

Owner's Response: Aloha Julia, It was a pleasure to have you stay and had you let us know we would have been happy to fix any maintenance issues you had during your stay - including an extra key for you to use, which should have been there for you once in the home. We are in the process of installing all new quality bedding, linens and towels - with new furniture on the way - and Im sorry it hadnt arrived in time for your stay. Ocean Pool House really is a special spot, with lots of Hawaiian Aloha. The home has a nice private feel, uncrowded by other properties, yet so central to many island activities, sightseeing and dining and shopping favorites - not to mention all the beautiful beaches on the amazing north shore! The sightseeing from the home itself, with sunsets over the ocean, whilst by the beautiful poolside, watching seabirds and listening to the ocean is definitely a bonus - and then there's the hot tub, juicy oranges when in season - and the amazing courtship and nesting rituals of the albatross in the winter months! ..This is very up close, right by the house in the tiny cul-de-sac and really is a priviledge to witness such a large part of their lifecycle - the nesting and then chicks becoming so big and fluffly, awkwardly outgrowning the nests - and the adults taking flight, soaring in and out from the bluff. Its all very special! Kauai is a magical place and Ocean Pool House is defintely a special slice of Paradise! Mahalo for choosingto stay at Ocean Pool House and taking the time for your review. With much Aloha, Samantha

Relaxing Paradise with a Wonderful View.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! We love to cook while on vacation and the kitchen was well equipped, including a BBQ! The pool was wonderful as 2 of the members of our party were not able to walk to the " private beach". The beach was secluded and very nice. We had plenty of room and loved the location! We would recommend the home for anyone wanting a quiet location, beautiful view and all the amenities of home.....but only in paradise.

The perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Do not wait to book this house or you'll miss out. This house has it All-The view, pool, hot tub, privacy and functional kitchen, accommodations and a private beach a short hike away. This is our second stay at the Pool house and we love it. Samantha is nothing less than amazing and very easy to reach. It is a perfect house if you have kids and or teenagers. There is plenty of snorkeling gear, an ice cooler, boogie boards and chairs for a family outing at any beach, which saves on rentals. The house is very clean, and has a great layout, One of the best features of this beautiful house is the pool, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the sound of the waves crashing at night. We will definitely be back!

The PERFECT escape for a family!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home was perfect for my family of six. The house itself, although only slightly outdated, had EVERYTHING we needed. Great bedrooms with comfortable beds, wonderful shared spaces, and a fully stocked kitchen. But, it's the backyard that sets this house apart. The pool is AMAZING... large, gorgeous, and so much fun. My kids swam in it many times a day, usually starting around 7 AM. ;-). The hot tub was so relaxing and enjoyable. Now, add the breathtaking view of the ocean, and we were in heaven. This house is a rare find and I feel blessed to have spent 10 days there. We definitely hope to return. Samantha was so wonderful to work with, a great communicator, and we really felt like she was taking care of us. I promise you, you will never regret staying in this beautiful home.

Perfect place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful week in this home, waking each morning to a stunning sunrise and view of the Pacific. There is a little (nearly) deserted beach <10 minutes walk that we enjoyed hiking to, especially in the mornings, and there are plenty of other spots within easy drive -- the Napali Coast (at Kee Beach), Amani Beach (our favorite!), Kilauea, Hanalei and of course, Princeville. The location is truly ideal.

The terrace around the pool is gorgeous and we ate every meal there. The interior isn't fancy, but it's super comfortable -- beds with good mattresses, plenty of outdoor seating, inside lazy boy chairs placed to enjoy the views and a kitchen so well equipped that it was easy and fun to eat in or grill fish on the patio. The hot tub was a fantastic feature -- we kept the temps fairly low and enjoyed it in the mornings as well as at night.

The house was perfect for a family of four. The master BR has a weird feature -- an adjoining bathroom but with no door! This meant that we were often using the kids' bathroom for privacy, which would get annoying if you were sharing this house for three couples, so keep that in mind.

Chairs, cooler and a small number of beach toys were in the garage, so we were well outfitted for the beach.

We looked at a variety of nearby options, including everything from the St. Regis to small condos in large complexes. We were so glad that we chose this option!

Kauai's North Shore promises some of the most visually stunning scenery on EARTH! This visually impacting experience includes the Historic Kilauea Town, with its Plantation Era stone buildings, and the Kilauea Point Lighthouse & National Wildlife Refuge, where you can see rare and beautiful wildlife and unsurpassed Ocean & Mountain Views! Continuing along the North Shore, you will pass the waterfalls and river of the Kalihiwai Valley. A very short side trip will take you to Anini Beach, which offers calm waters, protected by the largest reef in the Hawaiian Islands.

Driving through verdant valleys, an experience not to be missed! This is the ultimate combination of seclusion, within minutes to conveniences, shops and restaurants.

Other Activities: Kite-boarding, hiking, shell collecting, beach walking
