Description of the Princeville vacation home rental
Our Spectacular View Custom Home is located on the majestic North Shore of Kauai near the Princeville Resort, this non-smoking home has all of the luxuries and amenities you will need for a perfect tropical vacation. Located down the block from the Makai Golf Course, and only a short walk to beautiful beaches, shops, great restaurants, spa, our home has 2,000 square feet of living area with a large yard and an additional spacious wrap around lanai with incredible views from every spot in the home.
My husband is a custom home builder in California and he takes great pride in the beauty and maintenance of our Kauai home. We stay at our beautiful Aloha Always, Kauai home every other month and keep a close relationship with our local very professional staff that care for our home. So when we are not staying there, we make sure its in the best shape and everything will be wonderful for our guests. We take your stay at our home very seriously and want to provide you with the very best experience.
Custom designed and beautifully built to create the feeling of a traditional Hawaiian plantation home, this home is ideal for families both large and small. Large Lanai (deck) goes all around the home on the top level, showcasing the beautiful majestic mountains overlooking Hanalei Bay. Waterfalls and rainbows as you relax on the beautiful outdoor furniture or from inside the open spacious floor plan. The layout of the home allows for privacy if multiple couples or families share the home. Downstairs there is a large master king bedroom and bath with a living room with a large flat screen TV that has a sleeper sofa. For larger families we have 2 regular sofa's that could accommodate children and one twin size fold out futon mattress.
Upstairs there is the large wrap around lanai, kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms and dining room and second living room with flat screen.
I am Karen Anne Millidge OConnell and you can find me on social media. I can send you to all of our excellent reviews. We are new to this site but have had a fantastic track record renting out this home to many happy guests on another rental site. I can share our abundant happy reviews for this great home if you contact me.
We just completed a custom remodel, my husband is a custom home builder and takes great pride in doing beautiful, custom detailed work. We put in new wood floors throughout the home, making it a very clean and green home with all solid surfaces. The beds have all brand new top of the line designer linens. There is an abundance of beautiful local, tropical themed art. We take the rental of our 3 properties very seriously, your comfort and care is our priority. We are readily available to answer any questions.
All three bedrooms have beautiful views, very comfortable beds and tropical decor. There are 2 King Size beds, and two twin beds and a sleeper sofa. The downstairs King bedroom is large, private and has a beautiful newly remodeled bathroom. It opens to the backyard with the fruit trees- banana, papaya, lemon, pineapple and other beautiful tropical flowers. All bedrooms have ceiling fans for extra cooling. The upstairs King bedroom opens to a large upstairs lanai over the backyard, with beautiful outdoor furniture for relaxing and enjoying the tropical bird sounds, sunsets and stargazing and most evenings you can even hear the waves of Hanalei Bay.
The large gourmet kitchen is fully-equipped for all your culinary needs. The kitchen has granite counters and custom cabinets. The amenities include, new top of the line electric range, microwave, refrigerator, disposal, dishwasher, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, and complete cookware and utensils for 12. There are two dining areas, one inside and one on the outdoor lanai. There is a large separate laundry room fully-equipped with a new washer and dryer, iron and ironing board.
The inviting and spacious living area is open and airy with an entertainment center including a flat panel LCD TV with cable, DSL high speed internet access, DVD. The main living area opens out onto a wrap around lanai surrounded by tropical gardens and expansive views - a perfect place to enjoy sunrise or the spectacular Kauai sunset.
There are numerous beaches, some are a 10 min walk and others are within a 10 min drive from the house. There is world class golf on Princeville's two courses. Tennis is just a block away.
We are a few blocks from Hanalei Bay Resort and The St. Regis Hotel, with spectacular Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai views with fabulous spa, dining and cocktail lounge with live nightly entertainment.
We take great pride in the care of our beloved Aloha Always home and extend the aloha spirit and hospitality to all of our guests. My husband is a custom home builder in CA and we take great care of our home. We've owned our home in Kauai for many years and delight as we proudly welcome back visitors and friends repeatedly over the years.
We have beach chairs, toys, coolers, umbrellas, some snorkeling equipment, games, books, movies to add to the fun.
Ask about special multiple month discount for off season winter months.

Area Information
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. Beautiful walking paths to beaches, dining of all kinds, shops, spa and golf. 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.

My family and our good friends stayed with our kids. We loved the home, perfect layout for our 2 families with the 2 living room tv areas and great big yard. The views are outstanding, could hardly get inside from the lanai, waterfalls are amazing indeed. Really easy walk to great dining and our favorite beach. Would definitely stay again. Owners are so helpful and take great care of the home. New linens, everything is clean, organized and really pretty, great art and games for kids. Can't wait to come back!

Great Family Vacation
We are experienced renters and Hawaiian Island travelers! Karen's beautiful house was the best ever. We rented for a month, allowing us to host our siblings and our children and their families. When a question came up, Karen was quick with her response. The set up of the house is perfect for togetherness and privacy. We love to cook together so the well-equipped kitchen was wonderful. The mountain views were gorgeous at every time of the day. Since it was March, we did have a wild thunderstorm one evening. Beautiful at the time and even better the next morning, we were able to view 17 waterfalls! What a beautiful place to start the day: a cup of coffee on the deck, viewing the sun coming up across the mountains, a jog or walk around the neighborhood and golf course, and the activity of the day, maybe a walk through the Hanalei Bay Resort to the protected beach, or a longer, more adventurous walk to Hideaways Beach or Queen's Bath. A short drive or longer beach walk around the point with an easy river crossing gets you to Hanalei. The neighborhood beach has a little snorkeling while Hideaways can be simply amazing on calm days. All of this within walking distance of this wonderful house. And the neighbors are really friendly!

Great home and location
My family enjoyed our recent visit, as always we come to this home because it's got all we need, beautiful location and well organized and clean, each year we return the owners make improvements and upgrades. This year we loved the new floors and kitchen. We have stayed with another family and at times just with our own family. The layout of the home allows for us to come together but we also have plenty of room to do our own thing too. It's a great location for stores, beach, walking. We are already organizing our return trip, so happy we get to come here and it's really our paradise home away from home.

Paradise in Paradise
It was so encouraging to sit on the 360 degree balcony each morning and look at the waterfalls flowing off the close mountain ranges while enjoying fresh coffee. I could have watched that peaceful scene all day, but the convenient location drew me to either walk to breathtaking view of the north shore or a quick drive to great snorkeling. This place is a home away from home with every comfort and convenience I am used to in California minus the work computer. Yeah!!

We had a wonderful vacation here
The home is beautiful, great beds and linens, all the decor is tropical with nice local art and comfy furniture, well stocked kitchen with all we needed to cook. We walked to restaurants and beaches, played golf nearby and got massages. We hardly left the neighborhood. We sure got to unwind and relax, the views are so beautiful and the home was neat, clean and very pretty. We highly recommend it and plan to return and tell our friends.

Very Lovely Home and Beautiful Views
We had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful home. it's bright, clean, comfortable, beautiful new linens and very well stocked and organized. The area is perfect for us, amazing views and quiet location, easy walk to store, beach and restaurants. We are already planning our next visit. The layout of the home was ideal for 2 families, very private space w large bedroom and additional tv room downstairs from the upstairs bedrooms and living room. it was the best of both worlds for us, we came together when we wanted to but if we needed to have your own space the design easily lended itself to that, great place indeed.
