Why Karen OConnell chose Kauai

Our home is in a very serene beautiful area in Princeville, we love how accessible it is to all the views and beaches we love, the walking/bikes trails, golf course and the adorable town of Hanalei. After many years of visiting this area and staying at several of the other locations, we choose our home because of the tropical, serene feeling- so spaciously open to the wonder of this beautiful Hawaiian landscape.

What makes this house unique

We are on a beautiful street that is quiet, end of the road location. There are incredible views of the mountains above Hanalei Bay, with wonderful rainbows and waterfalls. The tropical foliage attracts many song birds and we have tropical fruit trees on the large beautifully landscaped property.

The home has a great design for more than one family or couple in that the downstairs master king bedroom with bath and living room is private from the upper main level where there are 2 bedrooms, kitchen and living room. The lanai wraps all the way around the home adding outdoor living space. The yard is spacious and beautifully landscaped with fruit trees.

Home Sweet Paradise Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous home, our 3rd time renting and it just keeps getting better. You can tell how much the owners take pride in their lovely home, adding to the already wonderful amenities, furnishings, artwork. We love the outdoor decks that go all around the top level, the views are amazing. The neighborhood is ideally located near beaches, shopping, walks, sunsets, its all so beautiful. The property is beautifully landscaped and its so fun to go pick from the fruit trees, so fresh, delicious tropical fruit. The bedrooms work so nice for our family, with the upstairs being separate from the downstairs, two living room areas, there's plenty of space for privacy/quiet time if we want it. We are already making plans for our return. Karen is great to work with and so eager to be helpful. We are thrilled they share there home with us.

Best Rental Ever.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Karen's beautiful home for six weeks. It felt like home. The kitchen was the best equipped I have ever seen and I've rented more than a dozen in Hawaii. The location was convenient for some of the most beautiful sights and beaches in Hawaii. The neighbors all treated us like permanent owners were very helpful and friendly. The home was equipped with all the extras like Beach chairs, Beach umbrellas, Boogie Boards, Personal Umbrellas, Coolers things you will be very happy to have. You will not be dissatisfied for short or long stays. Thank You Karen. My family, and friends will definitely be back.

Mountain views!

  • 5 of 5

The views and the second-floor lanai make this house a treasure for guests who love to feel connected with the outdoors. It's easy to spend a substantial part of the day in the house and still feel as if you've been somewhere.

A great place for families: worked well for us - a married couple, two teenage children, an uncle, and two grnadmothers.

Owner is very responsive.

We felt lucky to have found this property.

  • 5 of 5

Firstly the price was very reasonable for us as we split the costs between two families. Communication from Karen was very quick, clear and helpful. Street and house location is beautiful, feels very homely. House is well kept and served us well between the 6 of us. Visual privacy is fine between bedrooms but being a traditional Hawaiian home with
