About Paul

Mesmerized at first glance…

Our family was captivated by the unspoiled beauty of Kauai and the truth to the legend that nothing was built higher than a palm tree. We were in awe of the endless beaches that surprised us around every corner as we explored the island for the first time.

There was something for everyone on this island, from practicing the art of true relaxation (sipping a tropical drink by the pool with a novel), frolicking in the waves, hiking to a secluded and spectacular waterfall or river kayaking to a tropical grotto. The hardest decision was what to eat at the many wonderful restaurants that serve fresh, local delights and a glass of wine or two. It was great for families, great for romance, and great for a sabbatical retreat for one.


Barb, Paul and family.

Paul purchased this condo in 2008

Why Paul chose Kauai

When we saw the Nihilani resort on the North Shore, we were hooked. Purchasing the vacation villa was a new adventure that we hope lasts for many, many years. While we make our permanent home on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, we treasure our time in Kauai. It is our pleasure to share a little of paradise with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A friend and I had the great fortune to choose Kauai for our summer vacation, and to select Paul and Barb's condo for our time on the island. Our first words when stumbling in the door after a long day of travel were, "WOW! Really?!". The condo was immaculate and incredibly well furnished and appointed. Every need and most wants have been anticipated, and we would not have had to leave the unit if we hadn't been so enchanted with Kauai and its lush beauty. The Nihilani is a peaceful and beautiful development, and the placement of the unit in the complex couldn't be more perfect. It is a very short drive from the condo to the best of the north shore beaches and sights, and the village of Hanalei Bay. I couldn't imagine having stayed anywhere else, or having found another unit that would have made our vacation on Kauai more magical. Thank you, Paul and Barb!"

Thanks again,

Misty (and Marika too)

Fourth stay in this wonderful place, always a five star experience, highly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to Kauai since 2009 and staying at Paul and Barb's home at Nihilani 1A since then. We just returned from our fourth holiday and it was perfect! The unit has everything you could possibly want: comfort, tasteful decor, all the amenities, extremely clean and quiet. Paul and Barb are amazing hosts and ensure that everything is 100%. The neighbourhood in Princeville is breathtaking. Situated in the northern area of Kauai this place is rich with incredible natural beauty, scenery and outstanding beaches. This is definitely paradise!

Vacation in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Paul's condo several times and we always look forward to a relaxing stay, and we're never disappointed. The unit is very well appointed with everything to make your stay a first class experience. We never need to bring any extras for the beach because they're conveniently included. If you're looking for a vacation in paradise this is the place to stay!

Nice, central condo in the heart of Princeville

  • 5 of 5

This was our family of five's sixth trip to Kauai and our first time on the North Shore. The location of the condo is fantastic. Lots of nice places to walk or jog and close to the amenities at the Princeville Center, Hanalei and Kilauea. The condo itself was very well-appointed and had pretty much everything we needed to enjoy our stay (we found we actually over packed!) - from bikes and snorkel equipment to coolers and beach towels. The kitchen was nicely laid out and well-stocked, which made it perfect for eating in. It was nice to have in-suite laundry and a garage. There is a lovely lanai, which was a perfect place to unwind at the end of the day with a glass of wine! The condo backs onto the pool and nice bbq area. I think the pool would appeal to families with younger kids as it is quite shallow. Overall, we really liked the Nihilani. It seems to have a lot of resident owners and it was nice to feel like we were staying in a neighbourhood, rather than a resort.

Fantastic Property!!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at many VRBO's and have to say that this is one of the best. Whoever did the decorating did an awesome job! It was like being in a designer's house. The kitchen had all new glasses and plates, new blender, coffee pot..or at least like new. It had everything you would ever need! Very thoughtful owners. It's right next to the St. Regis so you can lay by the pool or the beach (all beaches are public in Hawaii.). All you have to do is say you're having lunch or drinks. Free valet. The Hanalei Bay resort bar is a fun place to hang out. It's about the only place happening in Princeville if you're single. The Dolphin restaurant is a must. Kalypso restaurant was terrible food. Book way in advance for the Napali Coast boat tour. A definite must!!! We took the 2 hour sunset ride with Napali Catamaran and they went into caves. it was fantastic! We loved this VRBO. Definitely will come back!
