About Vivian Holley
We love Kauai and spend as much time as we can to enjoy the relaxation, the lovely smell of the flowers, and nature. We also like the special cardinals that visit the lanai to say "Good Morning". We like meeting our guests by telephone and getting to know them.
Vivian Holley purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Vivian Holley chose Princeville
Emmalani Court is known to have the best construction of all condos in Princeville. We had two purposes in mind - a place where we could spend 6 to 7 weeks a year, and one that had a warm and relaxing feeling to it. The size of the unit (1500 sqft) with the large windows and location favoring the trade winds achieved that objective. Princeville is also known for having the most moderate temperatures in Hawaii.
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy the walk to the St. Regis beach, the short hike to the snorkeling beach close by, and the whales off the shore during winter whale season. The association also sponsors various bbq's and get togethers for owners and guests. Across from the unit is the heated swimming pool and spa.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
This condo was absolutely perfect from the location and view to the amenities. Everything was lovely in this well appointed home. We enjoyed meals on the lanai watching the local birds and seeing the incredible sunsets. The pool and BBQ area were fantastic and we met several other travelers there. Vivian, the owner, was incredibly sweet and was wonderful to communicate with. The only thing that could have made this any better was if we never had to come home.
Extremely enjoyable stay, thanks to beautiful and well-prepared condominium
We could not have been more pleased or impressed with the quality of this condominium, or the thoughtfully kind way it was prepared. Everything is very clean, well-organized, and works as designed. We were impressed with not only all the standard amenities (such as enough towels & extra blankets, kitchenware, appliances, etc.), but also the unexpected pleasantries (a lovely bottle of wine and chocolates -- thank you! -- beach chairs, boogie boards and other helpful beach items).
We highly recommend this lovely condominium -- it definitely enhanced our trip! Thank you for a lovely stay!
I had very good experience of my stay in the property. .
The Kitchen was well organized and it was fun to work there. Only issue was that the Children ‘s bedroom smelt of cat. This part of the house needs some attention.The house is tastefully done. We enjoyed our stay there. Thanks
Thank you for being our guest. We will be cleaning the carpets immediately now that we have been made aware of this problem. Our aim is to have a super clean home for our guests.
Clean, spacious condo, great location. Perfect for our family of 4. We enjoyed the lovely pool, friendly neighbors, friendly patio birds. Walked to two beaches for swimming and snorkeling and to the St. Regis for gorgeous ambience and cocktails. Close to stores and sights. Overall, lovely vacation!
Property Can't Be Beat!
My husband and I have stayed at this condo two times in the last few years, most recently in December 2012, and it can’t be beat. The complex is well laid out to be safe and quiet. I think because most people leave their windows open, they all know to be considerate of others. The condo itself is comfortably furnished, well maintained and very clean. The kitchen is fully-stocked with dishes, cutlery, appliances and a D/W, and there’s also a really handy W/D near the front door. It is surprisingly spacious and the floor plan is such that it accommodates a lot of people, but also provides separate areas for privacy and has a nice, covered patio overlooking the beautifully landscaped golf course. While there is A/C, you likely won’t need it. Gentle outdoor breezes and ceiling fans circulate air throughout. If it’s a rainy day or you just feel like staying in for a bit, there are a couple of TVs (including a big flat screen with cable in the LR), internet access and plenty of DVDs and books (including guide books) for entertainment. There’s also a small boom box for CDs. For food and other necessities, there’s a Foodland grocery store just a few minutes’ drive from the condo, at the entrance to Princeville. As great as the condo itself is its location— just a very short drive into Hanalei and convenient to all the north shore activities and attractions. Since Kauai is a fairly small island, other places like Kapa’a, Poipu and Waimea are easy drives for day trips. I almost don’t want to rate this gem so highly because it’ll make it harder to secure reservations. Having been there late spring and in the winter, I can say it’s the ideal place to stay year round: affordable, comfortable and convenient.
