“…Heavenly. We could not have found a better spot for a family holiday on Kauai”.
"There is a huge ocean view from 2 bedrooms as well as from all living areas. It kind of feels like the house is actually over the ocean".
(When the bi-fold glass panel wall is open) "The living room becomes part of the deck overlooking the Pacific. It was an absolutely beautiful setting for our family activities".
Whale sightings were an everyday occurrence, and the soothing sounds of the ocean made for the most relaxing evenings.”
We're not saying this; our guests are in the reviews below. Check out our all-new un-retouched photographs, and see for yourself how spectacular Surf Song really is.

When you arrive at Surf Song's exclusive location at the very end of a private cul-de-sac and glimpse the ocean beyond, you will know that you chose wisely. On entering the home, you will be awed by what the previous owners described so well as it's "drop dead" ocean view and surrounded by the gentle sound of surf breaking on coral in the pristine bay below.
Why stay here? In a few words, peace, beauty...bliss! You could choose a property down at the beach - but you would be unlikely to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet, or the breathtaking views, found on this unique oceanfront bluff. And the path to the beautiful and little used beach below the house begins a two minute walk from the property (about 10 minutes to walk down to the beach from the house in all. ) Surf Song is also centrally located for Queens Baths, Hideaways, Hanalei and Anini beaches - all are within 10 minutes or so.
Dolphins and turtles may be seen up close in the bay - the turtles actually surf sometimes! In winter, humpback whales breach offshore here. (We have tripod-mounted and hand-held binoculars). Albatross court and nest right in neighborhood and teach their young to fly from the surrounding bluffs. In summer, both sunrise and sunset may be enjoyed from the lanai, which features a new Dimension 1 Amore Bay Spa, said to be among the world's best.
Inside the bright, open 2300 square-foot home you will find a layout centered on an expansive living room, the centre point of which is a fully screened 17 ft. Nana wall which opens fully to the ocean side lanai. Furniture throughout is top of the line Tommy Bahama Island Estate.
The gleaming, all new oceanfront kitchen with cafee cabinets and white quartz counters is fully equipped with everything from a wine fridge to Royal Doulton dinnerware and crystal champagne flutes. (Your welcome bottle awaits you on arrival, or choose fresh local juice!)
Surf Song is also perfect for four couples, each having bedroom with private ensuite bathroom. Two families with children works equally well, both families having their own "wing". Surf Song is also a popular honeymoon destination and is often rented by couples seeking a private and romantic oceanfront experience.
The house is centered on the large vaulted oceanside great room. Sleeping accommodations are divided into two wings, one on each side of the property, each with two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The house seeps up to 10 in beds in the bedrooms.
Details are: East side: One King oceanfront master; ensuite with double quartz vanity and toilet, with ocean views from both soaker tub and rain shower. One Twin with garden views and ocean glimpses. (The twin beds can be made up as a king if desired).We have additional beds and this room sleeps up to four. Ensuite with pedestal basin, toilet, and large shower.
West side: Queen oceanfront master; ensuite with double quartz vanity and toilet, plus walled outdoor ocean view bathroom area with rain shower and arriving soon an outdoor ocean view Balinese stone soaker tub. Garden side Queen with ocean and Bali Hai views; ensuite with pedestal basin, toilet and tub/shower combination.
Each bedroom walks out to its own lanai. We also have two single folding beds with proper mattresses which can be made up in the twin/king bedroom or the TV area of the living room. (This area has a half bath and easy access to the fourth bedroom bathroom.)
All bedrooms give the wonderful experience of being lulled to sleep by the sounds of surf and palm trees in the breeze. All bedrooms have INDIVIDUALLY CONTROLLED air conditioning with new top of the line Mitsubishi SILENT operation split units with external compressors. (Surf Song enjoys a wonderful trade wind cooled micro climate almost all year round making A/C usually unnecessary. It is really needed only in the summer or during occasional periods of "Kona winds" when the trade winds die away for a few days.)
The garage features a Kettler table tennis table, lots of bikes in various sizes for rides around Princeville's many private roads and bike paths, and all the equipment you need for beach fun . (We supply Tommy Bahama chairs and sun umbrellas, coolers, a beach trolley, as well as several surf boards and a Stand Up Paddleboard.)
Surrounded by nature though it is, Surf Song lies only a few minutes’ drive or bike on quiet, private roads, from all of Princeville’s superb amenities. These include many beaches and a full shopping centre with high quality shops, cafes, restaurants and entertainment.
This is our home, found after years of searching on the islands. It is the loveliest place to be that we know. We welcome you to it with Aloha. Our mission is to ensure that, like us, having discovered it you will want to return again and again.
Relax in the knowledge that unlike some offerings, this is a long-established, licensed vacation rental in the Princeville Visitor Designated Area with a caring and involved owner and under the scrupulous professional management of the Principal Broker of a local real estate office (who manages only a very few select properties) together with a dedicated professional team of cleaner, groundskeeper and maintenance personnel. We all care very much about your vacation rental experience, as the 5 star reviews show.
Our Transient Accommodations Tax number is TA-074-845-7984-01. Our local property Manager is Bill Gillette, R(B) of Kauai Tropical Properties. His contact number is 808 651 8050. This information must be disclosed on all advertising related to any Hawaii vacation rental which is legally compliant.
Important note re COMMUNITY POOL: A large swimming pool and air-conditioned fitness center are located at the Makai Golf Club, about a five - ten minute walk or a few minutes by bike from the property. The swimming pool is set up for adult lane swimming only. At this time, only individual monthly memberships at $125 are available.
We take time researching so as to be able to refer you to every type of concierge service - at no charge and usually at a discount on bookings: Wedding planner, Private chef, Massage or Yoga on the Lanai, and of course assistance with booking of all Kauai's attractions such as horseback riding, boat tours of Na Pali, zip lining, sport fishing, helicopter flight-seeing tours, luaus, and golfing. We receive no compensation from the people we suggest, leaving us free to recommend those who we believe will best serve you .
We are a dad plus four family with ages from 12 up. Simon started professional life as a British barrister and practiced as an attorney in Calgary, Canada for .... too long! The girls work property management in British Columbia and the boys are in school. We come to Surf Song with a whole range of perspectives but we all think its the best place in the world!
We are in the business of exceeding your expectations and making your experience completely positive. We want happy guests ...who will keep coming back.
Simon Lord purchased this house in 2013
After several years of serious looking throughout the islands, the decision to buy this property was instant. It was simply the best property we had ever seen. Kauai's North Shore eclipses in beauty anything we know and has so many wonderful beaches, but the land largely consists of a flat bench ending in an oceanfront bluff. Few private homes are located on the bluff, while even fewer look directly down onto a beach, coral and surf. We are sure you will agree that Surf Song is rare and stunning.
We had rented frequently on the North Shore before we made this purchase. We found being up on the bluff much more private and quiet than being right by the beach - and we love the views.
We also came to appreciate the many different micro micro climates of the North Shore. Trade winds freshen and reduce humidity. Rainfall is often less away from the mountains - yet some beach areas are very close to them and as a result, we feel, may be more humid.
We felt that the right ocean bluff home could offer a perfect combination of almost constant breezes and lower rainfall, of peace and convenience. We think we found it!
Surf Song does all this in a timeless, classic Plantation style which invites elegant, easy living and an open plan which celebrates the beauty of its environment and invites in the perfect climate outside.
For us it was love at first sight! We've seen our guests react in the same way. We hope you will too.
The sound of surf as you approach the house - and throughout it. Ocean views from almost every room in the house. The expansive tropical hardwood oceanfront deck offering both Sun and Shade throughout the year as well as a tranquil shaded rear Lanai.
A bright open floor plan with room for everyone. Separation between the East master suite and garden side suite, and the two ocean view suites on the West side. Perfect for two families.
Dolphins and turtles year-round, whales and albatross in winter, stunning summer light. A heaven full of stars.
Our stay was comprised of our grown son's and their families. We had plenty of room for all to congregate and also for all to have personal space. The view from Surf Song is absolutely wonderful, you will not be disappointed. Simon made sure our stay was very comfortable. There is plenty of extras (like swim shoes, sneakers, beach toys, snorkeling gear etc.) We stayed so busy that we never got to even hit a few ping pong balls, but the table with accessories is available. We enjoyed the hike down to the lagoon below which is challenging but doable (if you do not have mobility issues) We also visited Queen's Bath a few times, even though we never ventured in the water the experience was well worth the gorgeous views we were able to take in. St Regis Resort is very close so endulging in some resort beach time is doable. It is also very close to many other beaches and of course just having a home base to explore the beautiful island was so very much appreciated. Don't miss a helicopter ride to the Jurassic Park waterfall, it was AMAZING! In short you will love your stay at Simon's Surf Song...the Rivera's sure did...Thank you!
My wife and I were lucky enough to spend a week at surf Song with a small wedding group and have our wedding dinner under lights out on the expansive lanai to the sound of the waves below. It was perfect in every way and could not recommend the property enough. It is immaculately maintained with the newest fixtures and fittings. The kitchen is a chefs dream in terms of appliances and utensils with possibly the best view in the world out of the kitchen window with an aqua sea view to the horizon. The bathrooms are new and modern with an amazing outside shower in the west bedroom and a stunning inside shower with sea views in the east master bedroom. The bed was probably the most comfy bed we have ever slept on, so much so that we ended up taking the details of the mattress so we can purchase one for our bed at home!
The garage is well stocked with bikes, beach chairs, coolers, fins, masks , surf boards a paddle board - pretty much everything you could want for a day on the beach.
The inside is immaculate but once you slide open the main lounge bi fold doors the main attraction is out on the lanai and those views!!! where you are constantly fanned by a beautiful tropical breeze that goes right through the house. I cant ever imagine a need for air con even though it is there if you do want it. The amazing solid wood dinning table under the pergola is the most perfect place to have a meal at any time of the day, rain or sunshine! And this is where we spent a lot of our time. The huge hot tub on the deck is also the perfect place to retire to after a long day hiking the trails on the island.
The property is very private and not overlooked at all which we liked and other than the sound of the wind in the palm trees and the crashing waves, there is no noise pollution at all!
Location wise the property is great. You are a short drive to Hanalei beach and plenty of other local beaches which we took full advantage of. if you don't want to get in the car a short stroll down a jungle path brings you to the spectacular Sealodge beach which is directly below Surf Song and is perfect for snorkelling and swimming and has plenty of overhanging trees for shade.
Simon the owner is a true gentleman and was fantastic to work with and incredibly responsive and accommodating to our needs and our wedding requirements. We cannot recommend this property highly enough for a wedding or a weeks holiday in paradise.
Mahalo Simon - we will be back!
The property offers a special vacation for couples or a family. The views are stunning and the location is perfect for whatever you would like to do on the island. The house was spotless. We had a relaxing time and it was easy thanks to Simon. Five stars, we will be back!!!
We are so happy we chose to stay at Surf Song for our vacation. It was the perfect get away for a couples stay! The location was close to everything and the house was exactly what we wanted.....very clean and nicely decorated. We spent the majority of the time relaxing on the deck and we now know why the name of the house is Surf Song....listening to the waves crash was very special. Simon was wonderful with quick responses and providing great recommendations for our stay. The kitchen was perfect for having a private chef come in to cook one night. We would for sure recommend Surf Song and hope to return in the future.
The deck is perfect to relax and enjoy the views. Sunsets were amazing and dinning outside was great. We utilized the BBQ most nights and the kitchen is completely stocked. The outside shower and tub were an excellent way to start the day and the hot tub was the right temperature to end the day! Beach towels were plentiful and had no regrets or found anything wanting in this beautiful home. We would stay here again anytime and hope to do so in the future!
We cannot say enough about this lovely home! My family went to Kauai for a much needed family vacation. This house just added to the fabulous time we had. Everything about the house was great- the description was everything it said and more! We all enjoyed the bedrooms and bathrooms, some used the ac in the bedrooms at night but the breeze was enough for us in the master bedroom. All of the beds were comfortable and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed as we were traveling with two happy chefs (family members). The house was spotless and the grounds well kept. The view from the house...no words!
The North Shore location was perfect. The grocery store Foodland is nearby as well as the incredible beaches of the North Shore. Hanalei Bay is 10 minutes away. We went on fishing and snorkeling trips right from the Bay to the Napali coast. We also took a helicopter from the Princeville airport which is 6 minutes away. Traveling to the south shore takes about 1 hour and the Lihue Airport is about 45 minutes.
We would highly recommend this house. It was so much better than a hotel. We were able to have enough personnel room and so much room for eating and enjoying each other! The owner was very helpful and gracious.
Serene and private location at the very end of an exclusive private road, yet within walking, biking or short driving distance by private roads of Princeville's many amenities.
Several beaches are similarly close, while many more lie within a 10 to 15 minute drive including life guarded beaches with vehicle access.
It is hard to overstate the abundance and quality of outdoor leisure activities within a short drive of the house. Shopping, yoga, massage, dining in a large variety of restaurants and bars and entertainment are close at hand.
You may find however that you share our reluctance to leave Surf Song and that much time is spent enjoying the amenities of the house and the spectacular beauty of the oceanfront Lanai.
