Owners (Karthik and Dhivya) have travelled all around the world to many beautiful places, but Garden paradise is the one that stole our heart and we chose to buy our second home here. We live in beautiful Colorado among majestic Rocky Mountains, when its time to relax and enjoy the beautiful ocean our home in paradise is a true retreat. Our design tastes are a mix of classic and contemporary. You will find influences all over the home designs. We spend about 2-3 months at our house in paradise but can't be there as much as we like, so we are happy to share our place with fellow travelers just looking to relax, enjoy and soak in the beauty of paradise.
Dhivya purchased this townhome in 2014
We chose Kauai for it's beauty, waves and relaxed vibe. Kauai is beautiful all over but our heart was set on North shore because of unique climate and everything north shore offers (hiking,kayaking, snorkeling etc). Nihilani in princeville was a easy choice because it’s one of the newest condos complexes with all modern amenities and open layout with town home feeling more like a home and include a 2 car attached garage. The pool, spa and BBQ area is top notch and always kept meticulously clean. It's not a large complex, so it's often quiet and very peaceful at the pool, but also throughout the entire complex. The walking/bike paths are extensive and gorgeous throughout Princeville. You're a short walk to restaurants, golf, Queen's Bath, Hideaway's beach and surf break, and both the Westin and the St. Regis (great for a sunset cocktail). Our town home is ideally located within complex with a minute walk to pool/spa area but far enough to maintain tranquility. Due to unique location in complex our master lanai has peek of distance ocean views and we have distant views of Mountain from another lanai.
Our home is in like new mint condition with all amenities of home and more.Home was designed to be kids and adult friendly (xbox,family games etc). When we are not on island we want to share our home with guests who would maintain our home as if it’s their own. Our condo is on other side of complex away from busy roads and has distant ocean and mountain views while being very close to pool/spa/bbq areas. We are very prompt in our response and try to build relationships.
My family (2 adults, 3 children 4, 7, 10) had a wonderful stay in this town home. It is decorated more as a home than a rental. The kitchen is the best equipped that I have experienced in holiday rentals. There is an automatic espresso machine, great blender, rice cooker, slow cooker, food thermometer......... I could go on. We love to cook so it was perfect for our needs.
We contacted the owner a few of times during the stay and she responded very quickly. The property manager was fantastic and helped us immediately.
I will certainly be keeping this location in mind for future trips to Kauai and suggesting it to friends.
Have rented through VRBO for years and I can say this was the smoothest process ever!! Everything is well organized in the condo (instructions for everything everywhere). The owners touching base periodically to ensure everything met our expectations was appreciated. Would certainly stay here again if I visited Princeville again.
We found this property to be excellently maintained and very clean. Owners were very attentive. Surrounding area was very peaceful, with many very good ristorantes and beaches to choose from. We very much enjoyed our time here.
Top notch in every respect. everything in this large condo is thoughtfully appointed. Each room has exactly what it needs. Beds are big, clean and comfortable. All TVs are modern and big. Kitchen is very well equipped—all appliances and cookware are high end and brand new. Great for cooking and hanging out. Amazing coffee machine. The garage is full of multiple sets of snorkel gear in every size and shape. Great beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, and five fully functional and fun bikes for adults and kids. The in suite laundry is great. The place is spacious, the pools are great and the condo location is central to beaches, shopping and other adventures. The hosts are easily contacted and a dream to work with. 10/10
Our family, six adults and 2 grand daughters, very much enjoyed our stay at Dhivya and Karthik Condo in Princeville. The Condo was located in a beautiful setting and contained everything we needed with the exception of food. We made good use of items to take to the beach and enjoyed the onsite pool and hot tub a number of times. The house is beautiful and we would definitely consider staying there again as Kauai if our favorite Island. Thanks Dhivya and Karthik for allowing our large group to stay at your beautiful condo.

We stayed in this fantastic Princeville gem for a week in early November 2016 and I can honestly say we didn't want to leave. Our group consisted of two adults, two kids (age 9 and 6) and three grandparents for a total of seven guests. The home is roomy and as the photos indicate, is impeccable and incredibly decorated and furnished. The home has literally everything you will need for a stay in Kauai. From the outdoor gear (snorkels, boogie boards, beach chairs, bicycles, coolers, etc.) to the well appointed kitchen, everything has been thought of. And if you like coffee in the morning, the Jura automatic coffee maker is reason enough to stay - seriously! We loaded up at Costco upon arriving in Kauai, including a bag of coffee beans that we ground each day in the Jura. The pool and BBQ area is very close to the unit and was rarely busy. We loved going for bike rides early in the morning to catch the sunrise and also enjoyed jogging from the Nihilani. It's almost 2.5km to the St. Regis which made for a great morning run there and back. If you want to spend the majority of your time in the northern part of Kauai, then don't hesitate and book your stay at Nihilani 10A. Thanks Dhivya and Karthik!
