Our Oceanfront, Mountain and Sunset view is THE most famous on all of Kaua'i!!!

Newly renovated with A/C throughout unit. 4 split Mitsubishi units: one in each bedroom , one in kitchen/dining area and one in living room/atrium area.

If you are looking for the most beautiful, romantic place in the world this may be it! This is one of the few Puu Poa condominium units with the iconic 'Bali Hai' view. Our condo sits on the edge of a bluff, with full unobstructed white water ocean and mountain views that are too beautiful to believe.

The condo (# 311) faces almost due west, so spectacular sunsets over the Pacific Ocean are the norm. The condo itself is huge, over 1800 square feet of interior living space, with

its own additional 22 foot by 18 foot outdoor lanai. There is also a huge enclosed sunroom that actually allows you to enjoy any tropical showers. It is custom decorated in a retro Hawaiian style with many original artist's touches, beautiful tile and granite throughout. There is more than ample furniture to relax and nap in different areas. The, I think called Neighborscondo has been extensively renovated, most recently in 2016

Puu Poa is THE premier luxury/view condo on the North Shore of Kauai, in Princeville.
Just steps away from our condo is the newly ($250 mil) renovated 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay that open February 15, 2023. This property was formally the Princeville Resort Kauai and more recently the St. Regis Princeville Hotel. The 1 Hotel is a luxury resort that caters to the upper crust of the upper crust — with typical rooms priced at between $1,500 and $2,000 a night and premium lodging going for more than $20,000. There will be 7 restaurants and bars there that are open to the public. The 2 main restaurants that’s will initially open are the 1 Kitchen and the Melina Terrace, the latter a Japanese style restaurant specializing in sushi. There is also a coffee shop off the lobby, I think it’s called “Neighbors”, open 6am to 4 pm, with nice breakfast dishes and lunch salads and wraps; Coffees, teas ans specialty beverages available all day.

There is also a winding path to the unbelievably picturesque Hideaways Beach below our bluff, where there is a nice coral reef for snorkling.

The fabulous 18 hole Makai Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., is also steps from the door. Tennis and pickle ball are available for free onsite at the condo.

Rent this spectacular luxury condo for the vacation of your dreams. You will not be disappointed!

WOW was our reaction when we walked through the front doors. Panoramic views of Bali Hai and pacific ocean from solarium and lanai. If you are a group of 2-4 people book this property! Kitchen/dinging area/living room/lanai are great spaces and very well equipped. The property is in top condition and communications with the owner were simple and very helpful. Don't foget to snorkel at Hideaway Beach which is below the property. Amaing snorkeling with the most healthy coral we have seen in sometime.

This was the most spectacular location to stay on the north shore of Kauai. Best. View. Ever. The condo was clean and large and just so lovely. What a great host. It's a very short walk to the oh-so-expensive hotel and we celebrated my birthday there. Fantastic. Mahalo.

The condo's location couldn't have been better! Exactly as described and the communication with the property owner was exceptional. They provided a detailed explanation of the condo as well as some great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. The views were incredible and close to a lot of great activities. We will definitely be back!

Amazing stay! Clean, organized, cool (temperature-wise), and you can’t beat the view. Mark was very communicative. I would stay here again.

Wowwowwow! The property, the location, the VIEWS and the owner…all top notch! Knowing that our first week of vacation was to take place on Maui before heading to Princeville, Mark was gracious enough to reach out to us to see if we wanted to arrive earlier than planned because of the Lahaina fires. All communication with Mark was clear, timely and helpful. The property itself is exceptional; clean, well-stocked with amenities (in the kitchen and for the beach), a beautiful, LARGE lanai and again, that view! We were fortunate enough to catch many incredible rainbows and sunsets from our lanai each day. This location in Pu’u Poa will be our Go To each time we return to Kauai…thank you, Mark, for helping to make our memories of this trip to Kauai particularly special ones…mahalo!

This condo exceeded our expectations! The location is perfect to give the best views of the ocean and Bali Hai. Sunsets were amazing as was star gazing at night. Communication with Mark the owner was very good. He was very helpful on suggestions for restaurants and activities. Condo was very clean and well equipped. We would definitely stay here again if we’re fortunate to come back.

We spent 5 nights here and it was the perfect end to a two week Hawaii vacation. The location of the condo is perfect, an easy walk to the beach, pool and a few restaurants. Very easy to drive to Hanalei Bay. If you plan on eating in, the kitchen has everything you'll need. The host provides lots of information about the condo and local area and will answer any questions you have. If I'm ever back in Kauai, I'll definitely stay here!

Seamless check in, superb information from Mark. The view from the lanai and atrium is breathtaking! Excellent A. C....it's one of the reasons we picked this property. It kept the condo cool & comfortable for our stay (along with the many ceiling fans). The path down to Hideaways beach was challenging but doable for me (I'm short with weak ankles and I don't like hiking) in water shoes. My husband and 15 year old son (both quite tall) found it easy in flip flops/ bare feet. In case you're wondering, it was worth it! I can't say enough about what great hosts Mark and Lynn were. Any time i reached out with a question, Mark replied very quickly and helpfully. The space is comfortable, with plenty of places to sit, and a fully stocked and upgraded kitchen (important to us because we like to cook on vacation). The beds were comfortable, and all 3 of us slept really well. Princeville is a great location for exploring Kauai. We have already decided as a family that when we return, we would love to book this unit again. Thanks again, Mark and Lynn!

This property was exquisite. Everything from check in to check out was easy and met all of my expectations. The condo was immaculate, well supplied, and had everything I needed to enjoy my stay. The view was fantastic - from the full ocean view to the gorgeous Bali High views. I ate breakfast on the lanai every morning. One notable surprise was a that I was able to see an amazing view of an almost totally dark sky from the lanai. I spent two evenings laying on a lawn chair and gazing up at the Milky Way and the southern constellations. I have stayed at a number of Hawaii properties and this was exceptional and worth every penny.

Pretty much as was described and depicted in the listing. Nicely remodeled luxury condo with unobstructed view of the ocean. I chose it because of its proximity to Hideaways Beach, which I knew has a difficult trail to access with the reward of not crowded and good snorkeling, weather/seas allowing. Because we were there in November, there were only two of seven days with calm enough seas to swim safely there. But late in our stay we discovered Pu'o Po'a Beach, much calmer, easier access (walkway and paved stairs around the 1 Hotel). Owner was responsive by text and friendly. I would stay again.

I spent hours researching where to stay. Look no further because the only negative is having to leave. The north coast is so much less crowded and touristy and yet so indescribably beautiful. We enjoyed every second snd Mark is a wonderful host that left detailed information and was easy to contact. Cannot wait to go back.

This was our first time in Kauai and we really wanted a high end experience but not at a resort. We found this condo at Puu Poa and it was everything we wanted and expected based on the information here. Best view of Bali Hai and sunsets, fantastic hidden beach - super hard trip down to get to it, not for persons that are not able to climb steep hills, but so worth the effort. The best snorkeling we found was right in front of us. Property owners were meticulous in directions and instructions for the condo. It was spacious and super comfortable! Master bed is heavenly! Master shower is huge and has great water pressure - so good after a long day! Property owners were very interested in making sure we had a good time with everything we needed! I loved that. We plan to go again!

We had a three day stay at the condo in Princeville and we had a fantastic time. The morning views of the ocean were magnificent. We loved looking out the clear sky at night and listening to the ocean. One of the best parts about this condo apart from the view, was the proximity to both Queens Bath and Hideaways Beach.

There simply aren’t words to describe this home overlooking Bali Hai and the Pacific. “Nice” doesn’t begin to touch it. The view from the floor to ceiling windows is simply astounding. Breathtaking. Stupendous. Magnificent. The lanai, the atrium, the view from the kitchen sink and even from the bed in the master bedroom … it’s like being at sea. We find it hard to leave the condo to go to the ocean. It just doesn’t get better … it’s all just perfect. We haven’t ever met the owners, but we feel like we know them after staying in their Kauai property. It’s feels like a home rather than a rental, with every possible thing we could want, and wonderful labels on cupboards and cabinets to help us navigate as we settle in. Hideaway Beach offers glorious snorkeling. The path is a bit rugged but is doable and is absolutely worth it. Honu, porpoises, the fish, Ne Nes, albatross … and the lizards! The little lizards! Mark has been an incredibly responsive texter throughout, starting with a booklet and a suggestion to make restaurant reservations in advance (which we did). This property and these owners are as good as it gets, ever. Thank you for sharing your Kauai home with us.

This is the most amazing property I have ever rented! Beautiful view of the ocean and mountains from lanai. Two beaches within walking distance. The condo is equipped with absolutely everything you need. The owners gave us great advice about what to do and see in the area. We will be back for sure!!!

We just stayed at Mark's condo in Princeville, and all we could say was Wow! The condo is really stunning - very refined interior in excellent condition, many supplies and amenities (all labelled!) incredible views, and awesome location. Mark's communication was great, and he provided super helpful instructions and area recommendations. The best part though? Walking distance to Hideaway Beach!

Amazing place. The lanai overlooking the water and the mountains is breathtaking. The condo itself is gorgeous and the only drawback is that it is so comfortable and beautiful that it is hard to leave. We would come back again and again and can’t wait to return someday. Paul Chicago

Mark ( owner ) was very communicative throughout our stay. This condo is beautiful, clean and very well equipped. The location offers stunning views of Hanalei Bay with breath taking sunsets. It's close enough to walk to Queens Bath and Hideaway beach which were both amazing. We had a spectacular time!

We loved our stay! It was a last minute booking due to our original plans being canceled by a different host. We had to scramble to find a place to stay. We had to split up our stay, and we only wish that we could have stayed in this unit for the entire length of our stay! It was clean, comfortable, spacious, and the view was amazing. People literally park and walk to an area near this condo just for the sunset view, and we got to enjoy it out our back patio. The host was very informative, and stayed in communication with us! We will book again when we come back!

Beautiful view if Princeville coastline and Bali. Hai mountain this property feels and looks like a luxury home. Kitchen is well equipped for those wanting to stay home and cook their own meals. Restaurants in Hanalei for those wishing to explore local cuisine and seafood. Nice pool on the property.

While the condo and its views and amenities are amazing in and of themselves, having such a helpful and responsive host made it all the better. Book 311, you’ll be happy you did!

We had a wonderful week in Kauai. We were here for our sons wedding, and the location of the condo was 20 minutes from the rental. Everything was perfect.

Mark & Lynn's condo was scrupulously clean, spacious, comfortable, airy and bright, located at the very end of the Princeville complex, and well-provisioned. The "private" beach immediately below the condo was a jewel box of Caymans-like water, tree cover and sunshine, and abundant marine life. My communication with Mark before and during our stay was responsive and generous. I was traveling with my 20-yr-old daughter and her best friend for their Spring break; we had plenty of space to be together and apart in this super-lovely home.

We stayed here for seven nights in March / April and we were blown away at the views. Situated at the edge of a cliff with breathtaking views of the Bay and Bali Hai. The condo comfortably fit my wife and I in the comfortable and spacious master bedroom, while our teenage daughter was at home in the smaller queen bedroom. The separation of space was ideal die everyone finding a spot to zone out. The kitchen was huge and had everything needed to make multiple meals during our stay. Overall a great location, views, quiet, and comfort.

Situated directly over Hideaways Beach on the 3rd Level you have a spectacular ocean view both north and south. Spacious and roomy, comfy bed, and clean. Check in was a breeze. Mark is a. Excellent Host. You won’t be disappointed! Best location in Princeville by far. 10 ~ 15 min drive in either direction to either Hanalei or Kilauea.

Great place to stay! Great location, views and easy access. The condo was clean and contains all the creature comforts of home. The owners communicated with us prior to arriving and provided tips and suggestions about where to go, local restaurants, etc.. They also provided local contact numbers in case of problems (we had none). Very highly recommend! Would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I stayed here for three nights. The view from the patio was amazing, the pool area was really clean and pretty. The condo itself was comfy and clean. Beach towels and umbrellas for guests to use was a nice touch. We would definitely stay again.

I booked this super last minute, like the day before and was worried we wouldn't be able to go as I saw it said 24 hours for the owner to approve. Thankfully he was quick and approved the stay in no time. Mark sent over all the information plus extra we would need for our stay and was very responsive. It was a beautiful place with gorgeous views. Very well maintained and cleaned. Enjoyed the area as well, it was quiet and everyone we crossed paths with were very friendly. Plus in the neighborhood when you first drive in there is a kids playground perfect for our little to get out some energy and great sidewalks to stroll.

I’m fairly certain this is about as perfect of a place you can get in all of Kauai. Princeville is a gem, and this condo seemed like it was in the best location in all of that area. So many things made this place perfect. Stunning view of the ocean, insanely quiet development, super accommodating features in the condo, and more. We’re already talking about coming back and bringing friends. So happy we stayed here. You will not be disappointed. There is a reason they have so many good reviews.

Mark was very communicative and prompt in any questions we had. Had the AC repaired very quickly once realizing there was some leak in the drain system. It was back up and running in less than 4 hours; impressive for island life. The views were amazing and Hideaway beach is nothing short of perfection. My 7 yr old got to see a 4' wide Spotted Eagle Ray glide right past us out there as well as countless turtles & reef fish. I would say the rental unit location is likely one of the best in the building too. facing towards Bali Hai & the rest of the Bay. We'll be back for sure. Aloha Mark!

This property was a perfect match for me (60) , my daughter (25), my son (30) and his girlfriend (29). This is my third trip to Kauai and my second time staying in this condo complex. Last time we stayed at puu poa I thought, “I want to get a unit situated with a more direct view of ‘Bali Hai’”. Mark’s property was perfect. His communication was spot on at a time when I bit frazzled by all the Hawaii travel restrictions and COVID testing. He even went out of his way to provide early check-in/ late checkout when it hadn’t even been requested. The comprehensive instructions and tips he sent were very clear and easy to follow. If I ever have another opportunity to return to Kauai I will first check availability of this unit, as it will play into the dates I choose!

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
