Great value! Great owner as well. The property has all the beach stuff you need (chairs, umbrella, beach toys, snorkels, etc.) and the condo is located directly over Hideaway Beach (like directly). Amazing views. We would definitely rent here again and can't say enough positive things about it.
We loved hearing the ocean waves from our condo. We enjoyed playing pickleball on-site. Fun being walking distance to Hideaways and Puu Poa Beaches. Thank you for a fabulous family vacation
We especially loved the hideaway beach.
The property is in a great location above Secrets beach, great to hike down to so close. It’s practically next door to the 1 Princeville hotel that has gone through a complete renovation and it is beautiful. I look forward to my next stay at the beautiful condo, can’t wait!! It has nice accommodations everything you will need to sleep and play.
the owner took a while to accept our booking ~ but VRBO took our insurance money ~ that was scary.
but it worked out i 2nd attempt.
as we loaded our luggage in ~ a big Heavy piece of a palm tree feel right on our luggage. (i have a video)
not the owners fault but theres a reason peopel pay good money to prune palms.
we go in. NICE VIEW!
And the. I realize. IT HAS NO AIR CONDITIONING I FORGOT TO CONFIRM AND IT’s Hooooottt IN THERE. No air flow and Kaua’i is getting hotter.
The REAL ISSUE IS ITS c+ level clean at best
back room smells funky / mildewey
Theres ground up piece of candy on the carpet. so we move the carpet.
as we lift it UP
all this dirt falls out.
Then we notics all the carpets have sand and dirt.
The cleaning lady comes back
then i see ants
all kinda stuff
too much to over look.
i call vrbo they put me on hold for 25 min no answer
so tonight im paying for both: Hotel and condo. i DO see what people like about it
but its a no for me.
CLEANING can confirm I never slept there.
own is free to reimburse me or not. i chose not to spend my shirt vacay arguing and waiting on the phone.
again. NO for me.
What a beautiful location! Really incredible property directly above Hidaways beach. The views are spectacular and the condo was very comfortable and well equipped. It’s also the closest private residence to the 1hotel entrance, which is hands-down, one of the top luxury resort locations worldwide. It’s a five minute walk to world-class dining, and literally some of the greatest views anywhere. Hideaways beach has some of the best snorkeling on the island and is relatively low traffic, thanks to the steep path to the beach. It can be a little treacherous down to the beach when it’s wet, but my pregnant wife and seven-year-old made it down multiple times with no issues. Overall a wonderful stay and an excellent deal considering the value of this property.
My wife, her sister, and her husband stayed here for a week and we had an amazing time! Great location, very clean property, and the view is amazing!
Plenty to do with the pool, tennis courts, and a hike down to a pair of hidden beaches. Hanalei Village is a very short drive away with plenty of shopping and places to dine/drink. I highly recommend a stay here. Whenever anything came up that needed attention, the owner was on top of it and was very good with the communication.
5 Stars! Aloha'!
The unit was very well maintained. The location was perfect. The views from the unit were great. Will definitely stay there again.
Very comfortable, spacious 2bd/2bth condo for family of 4 for 6 nights. Well equipped kitchen. Two beaches (Puu Poa Beach & Hideaway Beach) within 10 minutes walk. Easy access to Hanalei attractions. Lanai view is undeniably best feature.
We really enjoyed our stay here, the sunset view was amazing and the decor inside was very tasteful.
There are a couple of beaches walking distance away (although hideaway beach is very steep) and we felt the North coast offered the most spectacular views on the island. We would definitely stay at this property again.
The former St Regis hotel is being renovated down the road but we were not disturbed by any construction noise.
Beautiful place, Beautiful view and perfect location! They only thing that lacked was no AC but the fans helped at night. Otherwise it was a perfect place to stay.
Perfect location perched above the sea, peaceful mornings and picturesque sunsets. The beach below was perfect for snorkeling with lots of tropical fish and sea turtles. Very nice property, clean and comfortable, no complaints!
We loved our time at this property. Spectacular views of the ocean right above Hideaway beach and just a few minutes drive from a grocery store and shops made this place ideal for us. The property is super clean with comfortable beds and spacious dining, living, and bathroom spaces. I wouldn’t hesitate to come back.
As we entered Joe’s lovely home in Pu’u Poa, we were struck by the nearness of the beach from a satisfying elevation. The trade winds did not disappoint us, as we enjoyed their refreshing cooling impact every day. Being close enough to the water to hear the surf continually was so healing. The accommodations were so clean and comfortable, the kitchen perfectly stocked. We can’t wait to return. Thank you, Joe!
The unit was very spacious for our group of 4 adults. The buildings are a bit dated and several units were being remodeled (construction noise) during our stay. However the stunning ocean view easily distracted us! We practically had the property pool to ourselves most of the time. We were lucky enough to see TONS of whales and albatrosses from every window facing the ocean as well as the spacious lanai. Only serious down side to the property is the poorly lit stairs/walkway to the unit.
Amazing views from this condo. Unit was clean and easy to access. Pictures were spot on. Owner very easy to work with. Love Princeville area.
Loved the view, enjoyed watching the surfers, quiet and comfortable stay. Great snorkeling!
Walking thru the front we were happily surprised to find that the
rental was better than the pictures. Well equipped kitchen, very roomy and very comfortable and very nicer furnishings. The view from the lanai was breathtaking. The location was convenient to shopping. We would happily recommend this property to friends and family.!
This location has it all, views, beach access, pool, friendly neighbors, and most importantly: A great host. You won't find a nicer guy than Joe. Thank you so much for everything, this vacation saved our collective sanity. We WILL be back... soon!!!
Amazing oceanfront location - can’t be beat. Incredible sunsets… Hideaways beach down below… Plenty of space for our family… nice breezes to cool the west-facing condo. What a treat!
Perfect location, beautifully furnished, well-maintained condo with well-stocked kitchen
Joe's place was everything as described in the page. We arrived to a magnificent ocean view, and the hour leading to sunset was just amazing - both from the Lanai and the sunroom. Joe's instructions on opening the windows and doors asap helped reduce the heat/humidity when we arrived in the condo.
The furniture was very thematic - Bali style, and very classy. Kitchen was well stocked. The bathrooms were tastefully remodeled, and definitely had the feel of a high-end spa. The slick laundry machines came in very handy toward the end of our trip. Bedrooms were great. The fan and leaving the windows open kept it cooler during the heat - an A/C would have completed the picture tho. Because it is a corner unit, from the kitchen one could see the ocean both on the side and through the lanai, giving it the feel of being on a cruise ship!
We made a few minor comments and suggestions to Joe, and he was super-responsive and quick to spell out upcoming plans to update the Lanai tiles and walls, and some of the lights and switches. All in all, Puu Poa is a very high-end resort that deserves the premium price, and this condo was one of the best!
