House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
We are retired farmers from central illinois. We are an active family and enjoy hiking, surfing, skiing, and playing tennis. Our passion for Hawaii is evident and I am excited to share with others this beautiful island.
Owner purchased this House in 2002
Why Owner chose Princeville
Visited Kauai several years ago and fell in love with the beauty of the island. We enjoy visiting often and enjoying the beauty it has to offer.
What makes this House unique
Large property which is perfect for several couples or for a romantic getaway. Now renting in variable bedroom options...see updated rates. You can stay at other places on island but this house gives both ocean and Bali Hai views.
Minimum age of primary renter:25
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
No A/C and it was HOT
Beautiful house but with no A/C we couldn’t stay in the house during the day. At night it did cool off enough to sleep but it was still hot.
We apologize, this has been the hottest year on record for Kauai. We have been trying to stay green, but understand if record heat persists, we will need to look at air conditioning. In most cases, the breeze from the ocean provide plenty of cool comfort for our guests.
Mahalo for your visit.
Rodney was great, quickly responded to questions. House was well stocked with cooking items, towels, and beach equipment. We loved staying on the north side of the island, but did drive to the south side multiple times. Quick hike to a nice beach with shade trees and snorkeling. I have used VRBO about a dozen times and would definitely rent this property again.
Aloha & Mahalo for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. Come back and stay at Albatross Ocean Bluff whenever you hear the ocean calling. !!
Just married in Kauai and stayed with 8 other friends in this beautiful house. The view is spectacular and the house is spacious and clean. Includes a great kitchen, deck with bbq, jacuzzi, huge TV with Netflix etc, and stocked beach equipment. The owner Rodney is great to work with! Can't miss on this rental- Tim Hanna
Aloha and best wishes TIm and Gloria! We are glad you choose our home for your special occasion. Kauai is a beautiful place to begin your married life. Thank you for staying in our home. Come back to celebrate your anniversary.
Stellar place to stay!
My parents celebrated their 50th anniversary with my brother's family and mine, 10 guests in total from a preschooler to senior citizens. This house is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood, and set the stage for some quality time together besides all the outings and dining in the area. We had no qualms about leaving the windows open throughout the night, feeling the breeze, listening to the raindrops, and birds singing in the morning. This house was a comfortable, spacious and beautiful. I recommend this place highly.
Something that was unexpected due to my lack of expertise on latest tourism there is that some of the sites require advanced booking or payment for parking or entering, such as Hanakapi'ai Falls and the Princeville Botanical Garden.
However, the house made up for some of the sites we missed.
Some of the added bonus include the amazing ocean view, the snorkeling gear, plenty of towels, sand toys, walking/descending/climbing beach access and proximity to albatross babies :)
Aloha and thank you for your stay! We are thankful you enjoyed our home. We truly think it is paradise and are happy you enjoyed all the home and area has to offer.
Please come back when the ocean calls you.
Beautiful home but no AC
I didn’t notice that there was no AC when I booked this. It was hot during the day. Only book this if you’re rarely going to be in the home. The North/Princeville area is gorgeous but we spent a lot of time (a minimum of one hour each way) driving to activities - which were primarily in Lihue.
95% of homes in Princeville do not provide air conditioning. We are on a bluff that gets tradewind breezes. In ocean facing rooms, we have large glass sliders and fans, but you do have to open the windows. In the 18 years we have owned the home, we have never had a complaint about heat.
It is a shame more of your activities were not booked in Princeville/North Shore area. We would have been glad to assist you in planning best lodging location had we known your activities were in Lihue. The North Shore offers many activities for vacationers , many of whom consider it the most beautiful part of the island. It is a drive to Lihue especially during summer vacation months.
We do hope you enjoyed your time on beautiful Kauai.
Happiness is ..........
On a scale from 1 - 10, we all gave it about a 20+. What a great experience of having that many people staying in the same house for a week and loving every minute of it. The house was so well equipped, there was nothing that we needed that wasn't there. Thank you for giving us a great stay.
Thank you Liz. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! Kauai is a gem and we are thrilled you had a great time. You are welcome back anytime.
