About the property

Luxurious 5 Bedroom in the Exclusive & Private 'Sunset District' sleeps up to 12

Enjoy the Waterfall, Rainbow and Sunset views from the lanai of this elegant 5 bedroom custom home after you have played a round of golf, game of tennis, taken a swim in the pool or just returned from one of the many beaches or activities available in and around world famous Hanalei Bay. This luxurious Princeville home in the exclusive and private 'Sunset District' is perfect for a large family, two families, family reunion, 2-4 couples, wedding party, anniversary, golf vacation or ladies week away. This newer home with maple floors & cabinets, granite countertops and high-end finishes is tastefully decorated with new furnishings.

Top 10 Review (continued)................................................................................................................................................................

#4 Pool/Tennis ---

Available ONLY to this exclusive loop and adjacent to the home makes us feel like it’s our own personal resort since we haven’t seen anyone else use them this week. We appreciate there is no additional charge for their use, that the pool is slightly heated and that we can watch the kids from the lanai. A highlight for the kids (and us) was playing tennis with Bethany Hamilton (the shark attack survivor featured in the film “Soul Surfer”)

#5 Comfort ---

The furnishings and décor show that you must love this home very much. We appreciate that it's clean and well maintained. With 5 spacious bedrooms (2 king, 2 queen & 4 twin beds), everyone had a private room when it was finally time to retire (no uncomfortable sofa-beds in living areas). With the large open living/cooking/ dining areas, everyone has room to spread out, relax and enjoy paradise in luxury

#6 Kitchen ---

This beautifully well appointed kitchen area with its breakfast bar, open to the living area and access to dining through the butler’s pantry is what we will remember most. We had everything we could ask for to prepare gourmet meals, dine, sing, dance, play games and relax with our wonderful friends and families

#7 Other Features ---

Outdoor Hot Tub on private patio for relaxing and star gazing, jetted tub & dual shower in master bathroom, BBQ on lanai for cooking fresh fish, separate wine refrigerator (we are from California after all), large laundry room with full-size washer & dryer/large sink/folding space/ironing board, high-speed wireless internet & fax machine(if you really have to), outdoor shower, porte-cochere which was very nice during the occasional evening showers

#8 Extras ---

These really help in having to bring less from the mainland. Books, DVD’s, ipod stereo dock, TV’s everywhere, stereo in living area, games, portable crib for babies at the home & on the beach, hair dryers in bathrooms, alarm clocks in bedrooms, beach towels, surf & boogie boards, beach chairs & umbrellas, coolers, snorkel equipment, reef shoes, sand toys, tennis racquets & balls, pool toys.

#9 Owner & Management ---

Spencer, the owner, made the booking process easy, was flexible when we had to change our dates and gave a very helpful welcome packet with suggestions of things to do, places to go, different beaches for various activities and directions to everything (This would be extremely helpful for first-time visitors to the North Shore). Also, the on-island managers (which many homes do not have) were very friendly and prompt when we encountered a minor problem....................................................................................................................................................................................

#10 Affordable --- What a bargain!!! We stayed here for ¼ what it would have cost at a local hotel (let alone the cost of having to eat every meal at a restaurant). Compared to ALL of the other Princeville homes we’ve stayed (11 over the years), in terms of location, privacy, amenities, size, and comfort, Spencer could easily be charging a lot more (but please don’t :-)

Guestbook comments from the manager

Spencer, I can't thank you enough for introducing this lovely island and your wonderful home to me and my family. How serendipitous after so many years, meeting you and your 2 beautiful daughters in SF then landing here in Kauai. It appears your days of designing software systems in Silicon Valley has certainly paid off. Mahalo,

Top 10 Reasons Why WE LOVE THIS HOME & Will Return

  • 5 of 5

This is our 19th visit to the Hawaiian islands over the past 23 years and since your home is our hands-down favorite, we want to do for you what some guests of ours did for us (we have a vacation rental in California). A TOP 10 list of your beautiful home so future guests know what to expect. So here goes...

#1 Location Location Location

===>We’ve been to all of the Hawaiian islands and to Poipu on the south shore but NOTHING COMPARES to Kauai’s breathtaking North Shore. That’s why everyone says the North Shore of Kauai is what dreams are made of and why more movies have been filmed here than any other tropical location in the world

#2 The Lanai/porch

===>WOW! Amazing! Mesmerizing! Surreal! (to quote some of the more than 50 mentions of this in your guestbook). We love it because of:

a) Western facing orientation–We’ve been in homes facing north with nothing but ocean views and find this so much more beautiful (although we do get a peek of the ocean). Looking west makes for remarkable morning rainbows(some guests have seen double and even a triple rainbow), all-day views of the waterfalls on the mountains(one guest saw 16) and, of course, unbelievable sunsets over famous Bali Hai (where Mount Makana meets the Pacific)

b) Convenience-we can walk onto the lanai from either the family room or the dining room and it’s all on the upper level (not ground floor or off a bedroom). What a fantastic floor plan to take advantage of this setting! Also, with the living area and kitchen right here, we conveniently drink our morning coffee, have an occasional meal and, of course, celebrate the sunset with an appropriate tropical cocktail or glass of wine while enjoying the scenery, songs of local birds and island breeze

c) Constant reminder–The living/dining/Lanai area with all of its glass & openness to the views, never lets you forget YOU ARE IN PARADISE! I believe this has had a profound effect on our experience here

#3 Privacy

===>This exclusive loop of a dozen or so homes, each on an oversized parcel of land affords an abundance of privacy that is so unlike our past Princeville experiences where, by the end of the week, we often know the names and habits of our surrounding neighbors whether we want to or not. We also appreciate it’s across the street from the golf course so we aren’t disturbed or awakened by golfers or maintenance crews

Amazing week in an amazing home

  • 5 of 5

Having never used VRBO before and having never visited Kauai before, I was extremely nervous booking such a large home that my ENTIRE family would be staying in for our island wedding. In hindsight, I had nothing to worry about, this house was all we could have asked for and then some. First off, it was a breeze to find and get in to. Spencer sent us an email a week before arrival with suggestions for packing, activities ideas and directions. After a long flight and some big Costco shopping it was so nice to arrive and be able to quickly get in to the house. Second, I LOVED the layout of the house. For us from a cold, wet climate I was a little surprised to see the bedrooms downstairs and the kitchen upstairs but what a genius idea. We were able to stay cool at night in the downstairs bedrooms and enjoy the views from the upstairs kitchen and deck. The kitchen was open and big enough that we could all hang out while cooking dinner every night. Lastly, the perks of the home. The pool was close and we were frequently the only people there. The tennis court, while small, was also never being used and provided hours of entertainment. We also really appreciated the boogie boards, snorkel stuff and water booties. Not having to buy or rent those things that we would only use once or twice was really, really nice. Overall, it was an really fantastic trip that would not have been as nice without such a nice place to stay. Thank you Spencer!

Perfect for extended family celebration!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary. Spencer's home is more than we had hoped it would be. We especially enjoyed: meals on the Lanai with a beautiful view of mountains and waterfalls, proximity to the golf course (views and spaciousness) and beach, cleanliness and decor, and using beach gear that was provided. House was very roomy and well stocked - also just a couple minute drive to cute little shopping village in Princeville with grocery store. We cooked in several nights and easily washed/dried beach clothes/towels. It's located in a very nice neighborhood and so close to many north shore destinations - St. Regis, Hanalei Bay, Kilauea light house, several beaches that feel local. The owner was very helpful with local sightseeing tips and communication about maintenance. We had an unforgettable trip and a very comfortable stay, we'd love to return someday soon!

Perfect for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful property! The layout was perfect for our family! One private bedroom/bathroom upstairs with the kitchen and living area and four bedrooms on the lower level. It was great for my parents to have their private space, and my brother’s family had two bedrooms for him and his children and my family had two bedrooms for our teenagers and my husband and myself! Couldn’t have been better! The pool was fabulous too. Couldn’t get some of the kids out of it! Great location in walking distance to the beautiful hideaways beach and queen’s bath! Loved the walking trails and several nearby restaurants to choose from.

Spencer was the perfect host! He was so easy to work with and incredibly helpful. He went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed and were well taken care of. There were supposed to be two port a cribs and there was only one. The rental place didn’t have any available and we had 6 month old twins so two were necessary. He had us go buy one and then reimbursed us! He was wonderful!!

My only advice would be to keep all the screens and doors closed so little unwanted critters can’t find their way inside.

We loved our stay! Thanks Spencer for your willingness to be so helpful!

Better than pictures.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this place for a little over 1 week and we loved our time there. The house has a great open floor plan and an excellent lanai with gorgeous views. The house is in an excellent community with super easy access to swimming pool and a tennis court. There were a lot of beach activity stuff in the garage that we were able to use (boogie boards, surf boards etc). Overall an excellent stay and Spencer was very responsive to any questions we had.
