About the property

Discover the ’Garden Isle’ of Kauai from 'Hale Emmalani,' a one-of-a-kind 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom Princeville vacation rental home, complete with a private salt water lap pool. The custom designed 1,800-square-foot home comfortably sleeps 8 guests, with additional accommodations for up to 10. From this North Shore home, you can explore tropical rain forests, sunbathe on beautiful beaches and soar past the breathtaking cliffs of the Napali Coast!


Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: 2 Twin Beds | Living Room: Pullout Bed

Mature coconut, avocado, and lychee trees surround this tranquil corner lot, and a beautiful lava rock wall encloses the main house, welcoming you to the beautiful island of Kauai!

Rare Hawaiian Koa wood trim traces the ceilings of the open-concept floor plan, and new Brazilian cherry-wood floors guide you through the home. Five skylights and large custom windows make this home light, bright and airy, giving you a taste of the natural beauty offered on the island.

The fully equipped kitchen features black granite countertops, a Corian bar, Italian tile flooring and new Jenn Air & LG appliances. You can prepare an authentic Island feast and serve at the breakfast bar or adjacent dining room table!

The living room includes 3 soft sofas and a flat-screen cable TV, great for relaxing after a day at the beach. Feel free to catch up with work connected to the wireless internet network while seated at the desk, equipped with a printer, copier, and scanner, looking out to the tranquil pool area.

Spend the day surrounded by towering palm trees, sunbathing on lounge chairs or swimming laps in the 10x50 salt water pool before rinsing off in the outdoor shower. Fire up the gas grill and sip chilled tropical drinks on the custom rock patio while looking out to spectacular sunset skies and the Bali Hai mountains.

Rest in 3 comfortable bedrooms, featuring plush king, queen- and twin-sized beds. The 2 twin beds can be pushed together with prior notice to become a European king bed, and additional sleeping arrangements for 4 can be made on the sofa sleeper and queen-sized aerobed. This home features 3 pristine full bathrooms, complete with renovated tile and solar-powered water, as well as in-unit laundry machines available for guests.


This home boasts an ideal Princeville location, just a short, easy drive to discovering the many enchantments of the North Shore. Take one of the provided adult and children's bikes for a ride, or hop in the car and head on your way! Enjoy activities from days at the beach, to horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, zipline tours and lively luaus!

Lumahai Beach and Anini Beach are both about 6 miles away, and you can spend the day sunbathing at Ke'e Beach, 10.7 miles away. Princeville beaches such as Hideaways Beach are 2 miles down a steep path and well worth the hike.

Take a boat tour or soar through the air on a helicopter tour to view the stunning 17-mile Napali Coast. You can also whale watch from the Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse. Walk to the Princeville Center shops, restaurants and playground, just .5 miles away, or head into Hanalei Town just a few minutes west and browse through art galleries, attend ukulele concerts or tour through taro farms.

All of Princeville’s world class golf courses are within 5 minutes from ‘Hale Emmalani.’

Nice location but poor value for a home!

  • 1 of 5

As most of our trips to Hawaii, we enjoyed the beaches, shopping and running paths . It was nice to have a house with a really great location to these things. The house itself is in a nice neighborhood, spacious, I would say it would fit 6 comfortably. The 3rd room is detached from the house w/the 3rd bathroom. Small back yard w/a small lap pool. We did not use it since there wasn't much room for the kids to play and it was dirty water. There is no a/c, which I hear is common in Hawaii which however does come in other rental home. I would highly recommended getting a home with A/C. No A/C made this home VERY muggy, uncomfortable, especially at night. There are about 4 fans in the garage that did not work. About 4 small weak fans and the overhead fans made no difference to us. I brought this to the owners attention since I noticed the fans (that didn't work) were in the pictures of the house before booking and they didn't seem concerned w/it. Everything seemed damp, I pulled away one of the pillow cases, and there looked like there had been mold, which didn't surprise me really. When first arriving to the house there was dirt and grime on the floors everywhere. The house smelled as if someone had sprayed a air freshener to do a quick cleaning. This wasn't a house that maybe missed one cleaning, I looked under the beds, pulled up the area carpet and looked under the couches and was appalled at how much dirt was under there. Our allergies were going off and I contacted the owner. I told them it wasn't cleaned properly in hopes they would send out someone to re clean it. I even offered to clean it if they would bring a vacuum that worked (the broom wasn't very helpful since it wasn't getting any of the dirt and the vacuum in the closet didn't work) they were great about responding right away but unfortunately brought me another vacuum that didn't work. The other thing to note is the problem of pests. I killed a couple cockroaches, and there were lizards everywhere in the house. My daughter woke up with numerous bites every morning, she was miserable. We did find dog hair but I'm sure this had nothing to do with the owner or the home. There is a no pet policy for the home. We asked for a late check out and laughed when they responded by telling us that they needed 5 hours to clean. We were wondering what they actually do for that 5 hours? I highly would not recommend this home for a vacation stay. There are other, better homes for around the same price.

Owner's Response: Mike, thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. We take cleanliness concerns very seriously and have shared your feedback with the homeowner who provided helpful insight on this home. First, there is one portable fan and one ceiling fan in each bedroom as there always have been. There are also ceiling fans in the dining room and kitchen. It appears that you may have seen some non-working fans in the garage that we had diligently swapped out, and assumed the fans should be in use - we apologize if that caught you off guard. It was never their intent to have more than one portable fan per bedroom. However, it is known that Hawaii can be muggy at times. Usually, the persistent trade winds mitigate any discomfort beautifully. It helps in this house if the louvered windows (wooden jalousies) upper and lower, are kept open to allow the breeze to circulate, however, the windows were not open when you were there. Opening the lower louvered windows in the living room particularly helps as the trades generally come from that east side of the house. Second, Kauaiklean, their cleaning company, has assured us they will do a professional job of cleaning. Since your stay, we can confirm guests have had continued positive experiences here, as evidenced by feedback from guests staying at this unit the following week in April, in addition to this home's previous high ratings. Additionally, pest control is diligently completed quarterly and was last done on May 15. Following your stay, the next guests encountered no pest issue and this was even before the latest pest control round. Finally, we can confirm that the house sleeps 8 to 10: two in each bedroom and two on a hide-a-bed in the living room, with two additional possible sleepers on a provided aero-bed. Please be aware that like most convertibles, the hide-a-bed is not the most comfortable and is probably best suited for children. Please know that the homeowners do everything they can to provide clean and comfortable stays for their guests so they can enjoy their stay on beautiful Kauai. We are confident future guests will have exceptional stays here! Best, The Evolve Team

Great house and priced right.

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well equipped. House is just as pictured. Main areas are large and kitchen is user friendly: allowing multiple people working at same time. Lots of towels and washer and dryer was convenient. Would definitely rent this house again. Had a few questions while there and Tonja was very quick to respond. Mahalo.

Fantastic Larger Family North Shore Location

  • 4 of 5

For the money, you would not go wrong to rent this home if you want a nice North Shore location away from the more typical touristy locales. Nice amenities and clean.

Our only serious complaint would be with the fold-out hide-a-bed, as it is not comfortable in the least. It would be fine for small children, but adults would be better off on the floor.
