About Darin Plutchok
We live in the mountains in Washington state and come to Kauai to escape the winter as often as we can.
Darin Plutchok purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Darin Plutchok chose Princeville
Our lifelong dream has been to own a place in Kauai. We love the laidback pace and natural beauty of the islands. We chose Puamana because it's a quiet, well-managed condo complex, conveniently located near wonderful beaches and shopping.

North Shore Paradise
This was our first time to Kauai and we absolutely loved this condo! It was beautiful and clean. Best of all, it was super close to the beach and located in a residential area with many locals. The neighbors were extremely friendly and our kids got to befriend other kids throughout our trip. This location and unit is a real gem. Thank you for letting us share in the beauty and hospitality of Kauai--we will definitely be back. Mahalo!
Walking distance to the beach
The condo was beautiful, spacious, and close to Wylie beach which we loved.
However, at check in, there was no parking pass in our unit (the last guests must have taken it with them), so we had to drive to the rental office and pick up a new one. While we were there they gave us fans to assemble and set up in our unit that they hadn’t gotten around to yet. Then we realized the lock codes to the outdoor closet with the beach stuff in it weren’t working. Overall, the staff was helpful but it wasn’t the flawless experience we had with the other rental company we had used down south.
My understanding from Oceanfront Realty (our on-island property caretakers) is that the day you arrived they had just received the fans and that you volunteered to take them back to the condo and put them together, even though Oceanfront was getting ready to do this themselves. We would NEVER ask or expect anyone vacationing at our condo to do anything like this. Perhaps there was some sort of misunderstanding. Also, note that we have many fans in our condo, in addition to ceiling fans, and ordered these two to replace two that had recently broken (HI air eats such thing alive). Also, the lock code was correct and the locks definitely are working. Sometime people put them on upside down so perhaps you were reading them incorrectly.
Better than the photos!
AMAZING! Clean, so stylish; truly the photos in the posting are not even as good and as cute as this place is in real life. SO CLEAN. No AC, which was expected, but the fans provided enough circulation for us. A little tough to find from the written directions when you first get in but once you figure out where it is, it all makes sense. Darin was a bit demanding about needing to have paperwork sent over in advance which we didn't end up even needing. Overall, would stay here again. GREAT location, super private and central for Princeville. Thank you!
Top - nothing to add
Everything you need in its place, very clean, super interior design, quite, close to beaches and and and. Just great - would come back anytime to this wonderful condo!!
Thanks you. We are so glad you enjoyed our condo.
Absolutely the perfect little place. Soo quiet and peaceful. Great location for shopping and a short walk to Wyllie beach. Short drive to our favorite snorkeling at Anini. Will come back and stay here again next for sure.
Thanks you. Very nice review. Really appreciated.
Clean and inviting Kauai condo property - we loved it!
This was both our first time to Hawaii and our first VRBO rental. It was a great experience. The condo is clean, comfortable, and inviting. By the end of our stay it felt like home. We enjoyed the fun and modern decor. There were only two of us but this would still be a comfortable place for a family of 4. We appreciated the available beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, and boogie board. The full kitchen allowed us to prepare many of our own meals, which is more affordable than eating out all the time. Overall it was very quiet at night though there was a time or two we could hear the neighbor's tv and their patio is in close proximity to the master bedroom window. We found the master bed to be comfortable, we did not use the other bed. This unit is not on a beach but is in walking distance to a fairly private beach. We found that we wanted to visit many of the island's beaches which requires driving anyway. This unit does not have air conditioning but the blinds can be used to help with the afternoon heat and the ceiling fans help as well. We arrived at night and it was a little hard to find the building number in the dark but we eventually figured it out. There are reserved parking spots for this building and this unit is in the back (so you walk past the other 3 units to get to this one). Our other family members stayed in another condo complex and their parking situation was not as convenient. I recommend if you stay here that you buy a higher quality toilet paper for yourselves on your first trip to the store. The provided paper is the equivalent of a very thin sandpaper. You will also need to purchase all condiments. There a couple of seasonings in the cupboard but not things like sugar or other condiments. The supplied dishes, cookware, and utensils will allow for pretty much any meal prep. I would recommend this vacation rental to friends and family, and if we ever return to Kaua'i I would gladly stay here again. This was much better than a hotel, in my opinion. Thanks for letting us stay!
Thanks for the great review and all the very useful detailed information, which I am sure others will find quite useful. We are really glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo.
