About Corina Potter

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Studied, worked at UCLA and lived in Los Angeles, CA. Moved to beautiful Kauai a few years ago. I love contact with nature, people, and music.

Corina Potter purchased this house in 2004

Why Corina Potter chose Princeville

I built this home for my family in 2004. Life now brings us back to Los Angeles after 18 years residing in Kauai. My children were raised in this beautiful corner of the world. We are very attached to Kauai and want to maintain our connection with this blissful spot that means so much to us. Hence we decided to share our 'Hale' it with others while we are temporarily gone and enjoy it when we come back to visit!

I hope you enjoy Sunset Palms and feel the warmth of our 'Ohana' during your stay as much as we enjoyed living here all these years.

What makes this house unique

We love the location, the north shore of Kauai has so much to offer. A myryad of places to go and things to do.

Our favorite playground is Hanalei Bay. Calm awesome long summers, great for late beach sunsets, or just simple walks with friends down the bay. Incredible picturesque winters with colorfull sunsets and amazing surf. We feel spoiled when we can go and just look at the ocean, or sunsets, within walking distance from the home.

Great Views, Spacious, and a Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in this beautiful house on the breathtaking island of Kauai! The views from the upstairs kitchen, living room and deck are spectacular! The neighborhood and the nearby golf course are beautiful. The view in every direction you look is worthy of a postcard. If you just stand on the back balcony and take pictures, you could open your own souvenir shop!

Corina is a gracious host! When we arrived we found a bottle of wine and a box of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts. That was a nice touch that we appreciated very much! The home also comes equipped with all you need for fun: a barbeque, beach chairs, beach toys, and tennis rackets to use on the court that you can overlook from the back deck! The pool is next to the tennis court!

There are nearby stores to shop, beaches, and the Hideaways pizza pub by the ocean was pretty darn good.

Thank you, Corina, for your hospitality and the use of your incredible home.

Beautiful home with gorgeous view, close to Hanalei Bay & beaches

  • 4 of 5

Location: Close to Hanalei Bay, Hideaway Beach, grocery stores; on the golf course.

Rooms: Plenty of closet/drawer space; master bedroom has an amazing bathroom- shower and jacuzzi tub!

Pros: Plenty of household amenities/supplies; working fans throughout the house to battle the heat/humidity; close to Hanalei Bay, golf course, grocery stores, etc. Can't forget the most gorgeous view of the ridge from the dining table and patio!

Cons: Wifi was in/out, so we never really connected. Research destination/activities before arriving or you'll use a chunk of data.

Overall, we were lucky to find this place to call our home for the week. Kauai was certainly generous with its beauty and friendly folks. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Tiffany for your nice review of our home in Paradise. I am pleased you enjoyed all the amenities it has to offer, its great location and beautiful views. I am sorry to hear about the wifi did not work well for you. I encourage our guests to contact us if they have any questions or encounter any problems. As the remote areas on an Island occasionally experience short power outages, the router needs resetting as explained in the home guide instructions. Once again, thanks for staying In Sunset Palms, I hope your memories of this vacation will stay with you many years...Aloha, Corina.

The Best Property Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th trip to Kauai and by far the best home that we have ever experienced.. an amazing kitchen equipped with the best pots, pans, utensils and upscale appliances.. Corina was responsive to all queries and has an excellent local representative, Kristina.

There is a TV in every bedroom bar one .. iPhone charging and docking stations in kitchen and some bedrooms.. ample beach equipment, a pool and tennis court just a block away.. the views from the main living floor were spectacular.. Halalei beach is about a 10 minute drive but there are many other beaches close by.. after your big shop at Costco there is the local grocer, Foodland, which is about a 2 minute drive, for all the supplementals.. we would walk to it..

Loved our 2 weeks there..Many thanks to Corina....

Beautiful! Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us! We had 5 couples staying there including us. I loved the view and how open it was so it was easier to visit with everyone. Everything was clean and neat, and in a very upscale neighborhood. We decided to stay in Princeville because we were getting married on Hanalei Bay, it was Perfect! There are so many incredible things to see on the North end of the island. I would recommend this home rental to anyone going!

Lovely home, great location

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked in the door we couldn't have been more delighted with this home. We were 9 adults and every couple had their own bedroom and plenty of space to spread out, although we all gathered in the tremendous kitchen most of the time. Plenty of room in there for three to cook and the rest to sit around the island and talk.

The master bath was larger than most hotel rooms and had a great shower with two rain shower heads. The swimming pool and tennis court were literally steps away.

Princeville is a lovely community with several hotels within easy walking distance and a small shopping center with a well stocked Foodland. It is very close to Hanalei, a darling old Kauai village with good shopping and some excellent restaurants.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Sunset Palms. Thank you Corina

Sunset Drive Community is a small community within Princeville Resort with 25 homes and lots in a circle with its own clubhouse with tennis court, pool and parking. Guests of Sunset Palms are welcome to use the pool and tennis court of the Sunset Drive Community Clubhouse free of charge.

The house is within minutes from many wonderful places that will remain in you memoirs for years to come. Extraordinary championship golf courses near by are the Makai and the Prince.

The Community of Princeville is a luxurious destination located at the north shore of Kauai. In Princeville you will find beaches, golf, tennis, swimming, shopping, luxury resorts, banks, post office, both elegant and casual restaurants and entertainment. There is also a walk/jogging path next to golf course. A Playground and a Library. One of our favorite outings is to watch the sun go down from the St. Regis Bar with its spectacular 180-degree view of Hanalei Bay and the Majestic Mountains, as we listen to fabulous Jazz on Sunday evenings. Princeville is near the most beautiful, panoramic and highly rated beaches in the world. Hanalei Bay, our favorite every day adventure, is a two mile long beach with exceptional beauty at different locations and during different seasons. Other great beaches are Anini, Puupoa, Hideaways, Lumahai, Haena State beach park, Kee beach, Kalihiwai, Rock Quarry.

Heading north from Princeville you will come across the historic surf town of Hanalei, with unique shops, surf shops, yoga center, kayak rental, coffee house, shave ice, bars, entertainment, luaus and restaurants. Baracuda is our favorite restaurant in Hanalei. Hanalei beach is our favorite playground for beach, surf, swim, watch sunsets, walks and runs. If you continue north from Hanalei, you will encounter many 'bridges' and beaches through a scenic drive to Wet and Dry Caves, spiritual Limahuli Gardens, Haena and 'the end of the road' a beautiful Ke'e beach and the trail head for hikes to Na Pali Coast.

Heading south the old town of Kilauea with the Kilauea Lighthouse and bird sanctuary, and many quaint shops and restaurants.
