Enter through the two teak and carved-glass doors to the first of our two lanais and breathtaking views of the mighty Pacific. From the atrium entry of PUU POA 406, the tropical decor of our newly decorated and furnished family room beckons to a larger second lanai with upscale gas grill and gorgeous sunset views from our famous Hideaways Beach to Bali Hai.

Open wide the sliding glass doors of the master bedroom and sleep to the lullaby of crashing waves. From the moment you arrive, to your final swim in our heated pool, your unforgettable stay in our expansively equipped, air conditioned, penthouse condo will be one of luxury, peacefulness and romance. Welcome to Meli Makai - OceansSong at Pu'u Po'a - Kauai's premier condominium complex!

This luxurious two bedroom, two bath penthouse unit is one-of-a-kind. The main bedroom of this spacious, 1500 square foot condominium (2200 square foot including the two large lanais), is en-suite with large bathroom, with romantic 'his and her' twin showers, and a relaxing Oriental-style soaking tub. The second bedroom, which has a great view of the mountains and waterfalls, has a queen-size bed. Both the master and the guest bedroom beds have plush, new, custom-made Island Dreams pillow-top mattresses.

Located on the top floor of prestigious PU'U PO'A, this end unit has spectacular views of the reefs and surf from its two lanais (see pictures), from the main bedroom, and living room, and from the kitchen and dining room.

Elegantly refurnished and redecorated, all of the appliances are new and the kitchen is completely outfitted with microwave, stove, oven, blender, etc. There is also a new washer and dryer. The large family room has cathedral ceilings, cable TV, DVD/VCR player, IPOD Docking station, CD player, and high-speed DSL Internet access for your laptop. There is a second cable TV in the main bedroom.

In a quiet, end-of-the-road setting, PU'U PO'A is a solid concrete building, with magnificently maintained tropical gardens, and a pool and a combined tennis court/pickleball court on the property. Because of its top-floor location and concrete construction, there is little noise from neighboring units. Our holiday home is a cliff-edge unit with magnificent close up views of whales, surfers, and sunset views of Bali Hai.

The complex is right above and a short path from a secluded beach called 'Hide-Away's' which has exceptional snorkeling over shallow, bountiful reefs (see pictures). PU'U PO'A Beach is just a three minute walk from our condominium in front of the Princeville Resort.

Princeville Resort has many amenities including a spa for pampering. Winter brings the whales into your panoramic views of the ocean and the high surf attracts world class surfer 'dudes' daily. Princeville is renowned for its beautiful golf courses and nearby rustic Hanalei has great dining and shopping.


Our property managers have instituted an enhanced cleaning protocol. The condo is deep cleaned; all bedding and towels are laundered in professional grade washers; all surfaces, appliances, and handles cleaned; and all surfaces, appliance controls, handles are sanitized with disinfecting spray. **

Relax to the sounds of the surf and enjoy a romantic sunset with panoramic views of Bali Hai from our two lanais.

We stayed in this condo last year and loved it just as much this year! The views are spectacular and the setting so peaceful and lovely. The condo has everything you would need and is spacious. It was such a relaxing week watching sunsets from the lanai and going to the beaches. We will be back for sure and are sad to leave! The condo management have been great!🌈🏖️🐳☀️

We have stayed in many units in Pu’u Poa and this is our favorite. One of my first nights I was standing in the kitchen ( you almost get a 180 degree view of the ocean) and we saw whales breaching… From the kitchen! My favorite though, was drinking coffee on the lanai, watching the surfers every morning. Such a beautiful was to begin our day. The owners quickly responded to any questions, the unit was very clean, and the pictures did not do it justice. We will be booking again as soon as we can!

We really enjoyed our stay at this penthouse condo. Ideal location in Princeville, and gorgeous views! The owner and agency was extremely easy to work with and it was very simple using the Keylock box. AC worked great! Would return again

We loved this condo! Beautiful place and great location! We had a great week in spite of daily rain. We felt so comfortable and loved the sunsets from the lanais!

My partner and I are just back from the most amazing holiday in Kauai, Princeville, and we think the most spectacular rental on the island. The home has spectacular views that you can melt into, two relaxing decks where you can view the sunset over Bali Hai , and is beautifully appointed and cared for. The rooms are spacious and cozy at the same time. Everything is maintained to high standards and I recommend this home for the most delightful and for us, romantic vaction.

The Princeville area is quiet but close to shopping and restaurants. The condo was clean and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and the layout of the space is perfect. We would not hesitate to rent this property again.

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay in this quiet place. It is beautiful, and had everything we needed! The bedrooms are nice and big, clean, and each with its own AC unit. We enjoyed the double shower heads in the master bathroom. The kitchen and living are is nice, open and airy. We loved making pancakes in the morning and eating them on the lanai. This is a top-floor edge unit, which gives it an elevated view, additional windows, and extra ceiling height. Along with the nice artwork, it makes the place very inviting. Hideaways beach was just a hike down - no need to find parking. Our daughter (8) was able to make it down. Snorkeling there was amazing! We saw a wide variety of fish, corals, and a number of turtles. The beach gear supplied came in handy for trips to Tunnels beach. We wish we could have stayed longer, and want to come back. Thank you Noel and Erica!

We were excited for the location but disappointed with the place. It’s very dirty, old and loud. The place has a lot of water damage and we found out why for 3 of our 4 days staying there. We left early as we just couldn’t live in this dump anymore. They need to do some serious work to make this place nice and worth the money. We were extremely disappointed.

My husband and I were here celebrating our 25th anniversary and we enjoyed every minute. The unit was as beautiful as picture but the views far surpassed. I cannot imagine a better View from anywhere. The area surrounding the condo is gorgeous, upscale. And the local towns have a funky laid-back vibe that we loved. Highly recommend this condo

THE place to be on the Northshore of Kauai. The unit provides everything you could need. We were fortunate enough to spend 4 weeks in #406 and will treasure our experience always.

Had a grand condo looking north across the Pacific. Really enjoyed the shops, restaurants, bars in nearby Hanalei. Highlight was helicopter trip which allowed us to see areas now unavailable to be visited due to road & bridge construction.

We love this unit and have stayed here 3 years in a row. It is well equipped with everything you need to live comfortably. We have only one suggestion to the owners for improvement. While the living room furniture looks wonderful, and is very appropriate for the location, it is extremely uncomfortable . We tried everything we could think of to alleviate our discomfort, but couldn’t find a good solution. Perhaps it’s time to consider new, comfortable furniture.

The condo was outstanding. Super clean. Beds slept great. View was breath taking. Love the roar of the ocean. We would definitely come back to this place.

Pua Poa 406 was top drawer, clean and views to die for watching sunsets on beautiful Hanalei Bay across from the five-star St. Regis Princeville. The unit has great furniture with beautiful tropical patterns. One suggestion is to trash the bed spreads and replace with crisp, white coverlets that sing of cleanliness. The puffy, dated spreads need to go! We were amazed to find that the owners had left us with a full tank of propane for cooking; however, we did not use it. The brand new washer and dryer were valued and appreciated. A little elbow grease and fine steel wool would clean the stains in all sinks. It was delightful to enjoy a movie each evening on Netflix. Thanks for the game and good reads. We will return.

Thank you for making our stay at your beautiful condo a memorable one. We enjoyed waking up to the beautiful views while sipping coffee(thanks to the coffee maker provided) on the balcony every morning. You provided all that was needed (especially the air mattress) for a comfortable stay and will gladly consider staying there again in the future.

This place is all about view and location. The good: This place is spacious, airy, and has a ton of windows that look out over the oecan. The view from the decks, the kitchen and the master is killer. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean every night. The sunset view was also gorgeous. We never felt that we had to leave to find a better viewing location. Keeping the fan going and the doors open kept us cool and comfortable for the majority of our visit. Also, the location is awesome. It is just above Hideaway's Beach and we enjoyed the mellow and sparcley populated beach every day. The pool was also very refreshing. The eh: We couldn't find any beach supplies, except for towels, so I was glad that we rented everything we needed. Also, almost everything in the house needs to be freshend up. The knives were dull and much of the silverware was put back in the drawer dirty. All of the fixtures and furniture and paint are quite old, but honestly, because the view was so great, it didn't bother us that much. Something a few other people have mentioned in other reviews, is that sound really travels there. The location is very quiet and serene, so you can hear any conversation or anything going on outside (kids playing music at the pool, dinner conversations, etc). One night, our neighbors had some visitors until around midnight and even though they were inside and in an enclosed lanai, it was very loud. None of these things would prevent us from visiting again. We had a lovely time and this is a great place to come for rest and relaxation.

Great location near terrific snorkeling (Hideaway) beach. On the 4th (top) floor of the building was great for the view and for the exercise as there isn't an elevator! It was hot and there is NO A/C so we requested a free-standing fan as the ceiling fan was pretty worthless. The management company brought one promptly and that helped. Only 3 stars because condo lacks a good supply of dishes, needs better fans and more effective sun block shades on the windows.Only 4 of us there, but needed to wash daily to have enough coffee cups and bowls, plates, etc for breakfast and lunch. Refrigerator door gets stuck open and warms up contents. Afternoon sun pours in main windows but there are only signs of past curtains or shades - nothing currently there to black sun. Did I mention it was hot even though it was May??

This condo is almost perfect - large, airy (two big lanais), well equipped, quiet, great master bedroom/bathroom, and just a brief (if steep) hike down to one of the best snorkeling spots on the island. There are no shared walls and being on the top floor we never heard our neighbors which added to the peaceful ambiance. We visited with our two adult daughters and the condo, fabulous weather, and North Shore outdoor activities (hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, etc.) made it a very special trip. My only slight complaint is that the mattress in the master suite is showing its age and I would love to see a new one in place on our next visit. Still, highly recommended!

I was so fortunate to stay in this condo for three weeks in July of 2014. The condo is extraordinary! Two bedrooms with amazingly comfortable beds and pillows. A gourmet kitchen providing everything you need. And two incredible lanais offering the most spectacular views and incredible sunsets. It was so well appointed that we had absolutely everything we needed. It felt like home the minute we walked in the door. Over the course of three weeks, I hosted my adult children and a few groups of friends to celebrate my birthday "Hawaii Five-0" style. Each group was equally impressed with our accommodations. The location in Princeville is fantastic. The condo sits just above Hideaway Beach which is a perfect small beach offering great snorkeling and swimming. The hike down is quite a trek but very worth it. There is a small pool and tennis court on the property. Only a short walk away is Queen's Bath or the St. Regis hotel. Queen's Bath is breathtaking! I did get a massage at the hotel spa and enjoyed a cocktail and appetizer at their bar. It's expensive, especially when you have the most amazing view from the condo and can mix your own cocktail. A 5-minute drive to Foodland in Princeville for groceries. Fifteen minutes gets you to Hanalei where we rented kayaks, shopped, ate and drank. Tahiti Nui is a fun stop for pizza and mai tai's. I ran into Beau Bridges and his wife there (they were also seated in front of me on my flight home). Had a good burger at Bubba's and bought fresh bread at Hanalei Bread Company and fresh juice at the juice stand next to the grocery. But nothing beat picking up fresh fish from the Dolphin Fish Market and grilling on the lanai. Heaven!! Another 15 minutes north from Hanalei takes you as far as you can drive. I highly recommend Sushi Girl just south of Tunnels Beach at a small general store. And hiking at least part of the Kalalau Trail is a must do! We also booked a boat tour with NaPali Catamaran which was fantastic and a highlight of the trip. Did a helicopter tour five years ago. Would do either again. We drove all the way up Waimea Canyon and to Polihale Beach (both are on the other side of the island) on a couple of occasions. It's a "day trip" and so worth it. Stop at Jo Jo's in Waimea for shave ice - order the #2. Hanapepe is a fun stop for shopping, etc. But there's nothing like driving back to the North Shore and it's spectacular views. This island and this condo are something special. Feel so blessed for the experience!

The condo and week in Kauai surpassed all our expectations. Noel and Erica were extremely helpful and provided a very useful list of things to do and places to visit on the island. The best advise from the owners was "The best restaurant on the island is the barbie on our lanai" From the views of the ocean waves and surfers during the day to the fantastic sunsets and view of Bali Hai during the late afternoon to the star filled sky at night we found it very hard to leave the condo! The unit is very spacious and very well appointed. The condo has been very tastefully renovated and decorated and we quickly felt right at home. The pictures really don't do the place justice. We knew from the moment we opened the door we had found a very special place. We highly recommend this unit and location and we are looking forward to the time we can get in touch with the owners to arrange a return trip!

I celebrated my 50th birthday in Kauai at Pu'u Po'a Condo #3134 during the 2nd week of November '08. It was a dream of mine for the past 10 yrs to do so and I was so blessed to have had it come true. I enjoyed everyday there, even during a few of the rainy days. The condo was a home away from home with everything that you needed at your finger tip. I never felt I had to be doing anything special other than what I was doing at any given time just being there, sitting on the lanais admiring the magnificient views, cooking on the grill, taking a walk around the neighboring condos/golf courses, viewing the mountains/walking down to the ocean and getting a view of a huge tortoise, driving down to Hanalei for shopping or eating out, or watching the surfer dudes do their thing. :o) I will never be able to say "thank you" enough to the owners for their blessing of making it the best birthday I've had in my 50 yrs of living. I will forever highly recommend to anyone the advice of "you will enjoy staying at Pu'u Po'a 3134 without a doubt". Mahalo :o)

My husband and I along with 2 friends just recently returned from a week in Kauai. While there we had the priviledge of staying in Pu'u Poa #406. Truthfully the beauty that surrounds you as you look out from the lunai is simply breath-taking beyond all words..from sunrise to sunset the horizon is ever changing and one is spellbound by the beauty of it all. This condo is well decorated, quiet, relaxing, and equipped with everything you could possibly want plus it's easy to find and located close to beaches and wonderful little towns. If you enjoy a good cup of coffee after your morning walk you can stroll over to the Princeville Resort and sit on their balconey and overlook the Hanalei Bay. We've traveled the world and have never found a better deal for our money.
