Beautiful home and location
Just about to everything from booking to stay to quality of house, kitchen, bathroom etc - absolutely no issues
I've been to Kauai four times in my life and this last visit was stellar due in no small part to this property. The location is fantastic! With lush rainforests out back and the ocean across the street out front you're able to enjoy it all from this villa. This property allows you to be in nature while at the same time enjoying nice amenities - win!
The only real drawback is that there's no direct beach access except for a difficult trail within walking distance, but there are plenty of beaches within a few miles that you can drive to. This would be true for the majority of properties in the North Side due to the island terrain, so nothing against this property in that regard.
There's no A/C, but there is great cross-ventilation due to all the windows and we didn't miss A/C at all. That said, in order to enjoy the cross-ventilation you need to have the windows open and you can hear people in neighboring villas fairly easily. Also, maintenance on the golf course across the canyon starts at 5:45 am every day (even the Memorial Day holiday)! I was surprised at that.
Then, there are the roosters! I happen to love them, but my hubby and in-laws do not. They crow at all hours so just be prepared for that (again, this is an island characteristic, not due to this property). The wildlife sounds were so soothing overall that we became incredibly relaxed over the week we were there, and that was due to the stellar location and amenities of the unit.
There are a couple of improvements that could be made to the unit. The couch looks comfortable but isn't supportive at all and everyone ends up sinking way in - not great. The disposal in the kitchen sounds awful, and the master bathroom has some water damage that needs to be addressed, but nothing was broken or required attention for us to enjoy ourselves.
If it wasn't for the stellar location and layout of this property our visit wouldn't have been nearly as good as it was. It was by far the best place we've stayed at on Kauai - we loved it!
Bottom Line: We will be back!
Thank you for leaving such a thorough review! The downstairs flooring is being replaced, the couch is fairly new, and we have scheduled maintenance to look at the disposal. We hope to see you again!
This villa is in such an amazing location and provides a wonderful home base to explore Kauai from. I've been to the island four times and this was by far the best visit in no small part due to the villa we stayed in.<br />
We loved the layout of having the living area on the top floor and the bedrooms on the bottom floor. The master bedroom is huge, with a super comfortable king size bed. The master bath could us a little TLC but was nice enough. <br />
The sofa in the living room looks comfortable but you end up sinking way down without any support. Aside from that we LOVED this villa! Waking to the vibrant birds each morning (roosters too of course!) was beautiful. The sunsets over the ocean across the street were breathtaking.<br />
Bottom line: We will be back!<br />
Nice place for a family
Three rooms all geared for adult couples and a quiet area.
We loved the villa! Plenty of space for six of us, glad to have the washer and dryer, we had to run a cycle in the washer before use as it had a musty smell but after that it was fine. We had plenty of blankets and pillows, fans in every room (although we didn't need them) great kitchen, well stocked with what we needed. The grocery store was close and perfect.
We loved everything about our stay at Princeville. Excellent views. Comfortable living space. Great location. I highly recommend this Villa and I hope to come back soon.
