Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was very unhappy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We came for a family event. I have stayed at Pali Kekua many times before and this was the absolutely worst unit I have stayed in any place on Kauai. The view is spectacular but the condo it self is in desperate need for an update. Other then the view the photos are very misleading I had vacation rentals on Island myself and it is a privilege to offer it to visitors. With that also comes a responsibility of sharing Aloha and show respect to the guests. This condo did not do that at all. It reflects the overlay of greed that currently inhabits our beautiful Island. This unit could shine with very little upgrades and furniture that is intact.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This unit has a wonderful view. The unit as others have said is in need of a remodel. Unit is well equipped with kitchen, sand chairs, towels, etc. the patio door should be replaced. The screens get off track all the time and birds can make their way in. The screens scrape a lot and make a lot of noise for the folks downstairs.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was very happy with the location. I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The best thing about this condo is its location in Princeville with views of the mountains, the ocean, and the sunsets over Bali Hai. The PKK grounds are very pleasant with lovely trees, flowers, birds, and views plus the trail down to the beach. The condo layout and general amenities, including the library, are also great. From a sanitation aspect, the cleanliness was fine. But it seriously needs a deep cleaning (e.g., dusting/cleaning railings & art work; cleaning couch cushion covers & pillows) and better routine maintenance (e.g., doors & screens and bathroom fixtures). We've been coming to this condo for many years. We enjoyed our stay and will likely come back, but with the significant rate increase over last year, we'd hoped to see better care taken of the place.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: It took me a long time to write this, but need to now. We had a great time, and enjoyed our condo, even though it is quite dated and could use many upgrades. But we loved the location, and KVR staff was very helpful when we had a problem that needed fixing. It was handled promptly and staff was friendly. Our problem came when we checked out and went by your office to drop off keys. There was extensive road work between us in Princeville and you in Lihue, causing maybe 45 minutes delay. By the time we got to your office, we were both in dire need of a bathroom. We are both in our 70's and not in any way menacing. We asked if we could use the bathroom at your office, and were told no. She said we should go across the street to Walmart. When we got to Walmart the lot was packed - no place to park, no way to get to a bathroom. After leaving you with a couple thousand dollars of our money, it did not seem like an unreasonable request to ask to use a bathroom. We were the only people there, and as I say, posed no threat. It just seemed rude and uncaring. We have rented from you before, and been happy with our experiences. But this experience leaves me thinking we may have to look for something different. Simple human kindness should have been shown, and was not.

I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This place was not cleaned up well. It has dust mites in the bed and lot of bugs in the house. I had called and them know and they gave me a bottle of bug spray after 4 days. I had multiple bud bites along with my family. I would stay away from this place.

Wonderful views, Well-appointed with all we needed for our stay. Wonderful winds blow through the home all day long. Listen to ocean waves day and night. It really is an exceptional home to spend a vacation on the N Shore.

This is a fantastic unit, the view from the lanai is amazing. We were grateful that some beach gear was available for use. The pots and pans were in very poor condition making it really hard to use the kitchen easily. The knives were dull. The shower fixtures were old and are in need of care.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Wonderful location and fantastic views of the ocean and mountains. We really loved the views and proximity to great snorkeling. Grateful for the fans as the afternoon sun really heats up the place in the afternoons. Leaving the front door open helped create a strong cross breeze-wish there was a screen door. Living room furniture, bathroom fixtures, washer and dryer were on the older side but were functional. Good communication from the rental company.

The views are unique and the apartment had all of the amenities we wanted! While it is true that the apartment can use some updates, the lack of the updates did not impact our overall experience!

I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The condo is older with need of some minor repairs and a good deep cleaning. You can tell regular cleaning is done (bedding, countertops, etc.) but the hard to reach spaces and things like curtains and windows treatments look like they haven’t had a good cleaning for a while. The saving grace of this property is the view! Mountains and waterfalls to one side, crystal clear ocean with views of the reef on the other. Amazing sunsets and beautiful gardens surrounding the property. Had the condo been cleaner and in better repair it would have been perfect.

Reviewer Comments: Wish I could say as good as all the other units I have stayed in. Unfortunately this one was not as clean and had an offensive odor. It definitely needs updating. New flooring would be a big help and a thorough cleaning of all wicker furniture. Cushions need to be replaced too.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We loved everything about this place and the location. There's only one small negative. The wicker furniture is not all that comfortable, but you generally don't book a place like this to hang out in the condo all the time. We would stay here again without a doubt.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This is our second stay at Pali Ke Kua and first time in this unit. The unit does need some updates but all in all for the price it is a great unit. Comfy bed, fully stocked kitchen and great furniture on the balcony for enjoying the sunset. We would like to see them remodel and remove the carpeting. It is well worn and gives the condo a musty smell due to the humidity. It is a corner unit with the bedroom in the back toward the street. The bedroom curtains do not allow for air flow when closed and you need the ventilation late in the afternoon as it gets very hot. It would have been great if the curtains stopped above the florida windows or had sheers to allow for more air and privacy because at night with the lights on and the curtains open you can see right in. Beach equipment and cooler were provided. The loft area was cute and would be great for kids. Having two bathrooms was another plus. Don't let my suggested updates sway you away from staying here, this is a great condo and we would definitely return. Just a little food for thought for the owners.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: You have panoramic views in this unit....mountains, ocean and you can hear the waves. Hard to find that on the North shore. Another perk, direct access to the beach down a steep paved path with some of the best snorkeling, with turtles, on the island. Awesome sunsets. People migrate to this side of Princeville for the perfect sunset pic and we only have to walk out to the lanai. Though the unit is a bit dated, it has all the amenities needed. Kauai rentals is also an excellent company to work with. We have used them several times.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: No question, the view is the highlight of this unit. It's great! We found the unit to be well appointed both in the kitchen and the closet had adequate beach chairs, boogey boards and a cooler. Couldn't ask for more. We found the WiFi to be somewhat sporadic but adequate. With all the ocean facing glass, the afternoon sun in the summer is a little brutal but after sundown with all the louvers open things cooled down nicely. This was particularly true in the master bedroom. We slept very comfortably. All in all, we found this to be a very nice vacation rental.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The view from the condo is unreal! The mountains with waterfalls on one side and the Ocean on the other. Getting to the beach requires quite the walk(hike down) . So be ready. The condo does badly need a face lift. The appliances are from the early 80's and the carpet (everywhere?) needs to go. But if all you do is sit on the deck and watch the waves, you'll love it. I know I did.

What we really enjoyed was having a clear view of the north side of the shoreline in addition to a view of the westside. You can see the mountains and ocean all from the dining table! The bed was extremely comfortable as well. Great location too. Just a 10 minute walk down to the beach and the same time driving to Hanalei Bay. My wife and I agreed that we'll definitely come back to this location next time we visit!

This condo is in an amazing location/condo property - set right on the corner edge of the princeville bluffs above Hideaway beach (private paved access!) with a great pool steps away. The condo itself has amazing views and a great floorplan but is in need of updating (bathrooms, kitchen and carpeting). We had a lot of issues in the beginning as we found night 1 that the condo doesn't actually have satellite cable - only public access channels and a dvd player with a few dvds. This posed a major challenge since it rained and we were stuck inside a lot with a 3 year old. I offered to pay for cable, but was disappointed that the owner didnt see it as an issue that they inaccurately listed this amenity and denied making any changes while we were there. The condo rental owner came through though and loaned us a smart-dvd player that we were able to connect to netflix on for the evenings. Even then it was a pretty archaic set up. We otherwise had a great stay there - both Hanalei and Anini Beach are just a 10 minute drive. Recommend the area for sure but hope the owner will re-consider a cheap smart tv for those traveling with young children. That way they dont have to pay for cable at all and any family can link up to their own streaming services. Thanks to the rental company for being so partnering on a solve.

We stayed for our honeymoon. Was our last stay and last island for the trip. Location is great. In my option Princeville is the best place to stay on Kauai. This property had amazing views. Sunsets are right in front and gorgeous. It's small hike to a private beach which is good for snorkeling. And not so good for swimming. Very rocky. Also we found a lot of useful beach gear in the closet. Chairs, snorkeling mask, tent and body surf boards which was great. The house itself was pretty outdated. Carpets were in worse shape than pictured. Kitchen appliances reminded me of summer house in soviet union. Stove was very old and rather difficult to cook on. I love to cook and that was a bit of disappointment. Overall we loved it. Location is great. Views are amazing. Place does need a remodel in order to be competitive with pricing in my opinion.

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