Comfortably furnished with great attention to detail, this first-floor condo with stairs to entry, is truly fabulous. Near the edge of a bluff overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean, this condo also commands spectacular views Bali Hai, the north shore landmark made famous in "South Pacific."

The spacious lanai is very inviting. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful panorama while tropical breezes gently caress you. Here is an ideal place to have a morning cup of coffee or cool beverage any time in total comfort and, of course, enjoy the sky's varied hues at sunset. Many windows also bring this sensational scenery indoors.

A telescope has been thoughtfully provided to enhance distant views and offer the opportunity to see, up close, an occasional boat sailing by as well as Kauai's marine life. Frequently, playful dolphins offshore can be seen "showing off." During winter, giant humpback whales visit the Hawaiian Islands from Alaska to the delight of visitors and kama'aina alike.

In Princeville, there is a wonderful variety of restaurants with delicious cuisine and tempting menus. A short drive down the hill takes you to Hanalei, a charming town with many small shops and galleries as well as additional delectable eateries. No doubt, you will want to spend time at the crescent-shaped beach at Hanalei Bay, one of the nation's most highly rated beaches.

Golf enthusiasts will appreciate having two world-class courses right in Princeville -- Prince Golf Course and Makai Golf Course, both designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. If tennis is more to your liking, feel free to play on the courts right at Pu'u Poa.

Activities nearby include seasonal swimming, snorkeling, fishing, surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding, flightseeing, shopping, tennis and golf.

Aside from the potential difficulties for some individuals of 30 stair-steps (6 up, 24 down to go from the parking lot to the front door), this is a very nice condominium with stunning, unobstructed sunset views from the living room & lanai and great northern views from the dining room for whale watching. It was very comfortable, quiet and relaxing, with the wonderful benefit of being visited by three to five Nenes every day!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Owners have thought of everything in furnishing a great vacation rental. Even though there were only three of us, there was plenty of room to totally be alone and relax. The view is terrific and the resident NeNe Geese Family were a delight to watch every day. Any issues that did come up were handled immediately and Kauai Vacation Rentals were super to work with. The only negative would be the amount of stairs leading to and from the unit, so if there are mobility issues, this is not for you as there are no elevators.

Very nice property with stunning views. Very large condo. Only issue was that there were 30 steps to access the condo and it was difficult for a person with walking issues.

The location was everything we wanted. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. Being able to sit outside and hear, smell, and see the ocean was incredible. Every window had a view. A few steps to the trail for Hideaways beach was the cherry on top. Can't say enough good things.

I rented the unit for the views and it didn't disappoint! Beda were comfortable and the shower is awesome. The kitchen looks to be newly updated and it was nice to cook meals in. The problem arose with the overall condition, cleanliness and lack of repair. Almost all the windows have tears in the screen, the screens don't close correctly which leaves gaps so there are flies, gnats, ants and roaches no matter how clean we were. The first day I had to vacuum because when we checked in there were cobwebs and dead bugs. Empty wine bottles in cupboards, etc. The closets are almost unusable because they are filled with junk. Same with several kitchen cupboards. Overall we loved the view and kitchen. But disappointed with the rest.

The condo was in a great location for exploring Princeville. Everything was clean and stocked with what we needed to enjoy our stay. You can’t beat the view and stargazing from the front yard and lanai. Would stay here again.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very 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 location of this unit was perfect, the views were spectacular. However the condo is in desperate need of some updating. Some of the windows don't open, shutters are falling off. The complex has alot of construction going on, which unfortunately you could hear throughout the day, instead of peaceful, serene ocean sound, we heard pounding, sawing, nailing, loud construction equipment. We were not given any notification this would be going on.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: First let me say that the views are insane from this unit and the walk to it from the car! From almost every window, there are gorgeous views - I knew they would be good, but WOW!! We heard that unit was larger than it looked in the photos - bingo! I think they need better photos - the whole place looked much better that the photos and SO much bigger! There were only 2 of us and wow did we have tons of room - it was great!We heard that the decor was a little dated, but we found it fun and a bit kitchy. We especially loved the oversized sofa - it was like a large square with tons of pillows - I fell asleep there many times! Some other reviews said that the living room furniture was not super comfortable - we found it fine. Not amazing, but it was comfy enough to sleep on, lounge on, and have a great time on. We loved the cool chair with the overhang - super interesting!A few things did need updating like the windows/screens - some were broken, or wouldn't open, or had ripped screens - not a huge deal to us - just could use updating.The one negative for us was - we had booked this unit because it said it was on the first floor - I assumed that meant ground level... but we had to go down a couple short flights of stairs to get to the unit...plus from the parking, the sidewalk had a few steps... made it difficult with luggage (we had a lot) and we had planned on using a wagon to schlep things from the unit, but couldn't because of this. My sister has athsma, so this was tough for her... I wish that would have been made more clear, but again, we dealt with it and we could have asked more questions about this ahead of time, but we didn't.No air conditioning - it was a tad warm when we'd get back late afternoon, but with so many overhead and standing fans - we were absolutely fine. We made sure to close the drapes during the day when the sun came in which helped a lot.Overall - we loved the unit and would definit

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: A good choice for Kauai trip. Pu’u Po’a is a solidly built group of condos with beautiful ocean views. Rooms are well sized and complex is well run with a Swiming Pool and Tennis Court. The complex is walking distance to the Princeville Hotel (when it reopens as One Hanalei Bay). The Condo 112 is quite spacious due to being on the bottom floor and having the lanai enclosed. There are 2 Bedrooms with second one having a double and single shoe horned in. Master bedroom and living room have medium sized tv’s with cable. The Wifi signal was good and managed to work with zoom calls, video streaming and Volte phone calls. Because Pu’u Po’a is solidly built not just wood framed Cellphone signal can be dubious in most units so good wifi is important. Condo is in good state of repair but has not been modernized. There is a covered lanai open to the elements where you can eat or chat round a table outdoors. I found this very useful with Covid pandemic and a desire to stay outdoors yet avoid any rain showers. The views of the ocean and Makana Mountain across Hanalei Bay are the best at Pu’u Po’a. In my views Pu’u Po’a is the best condo on The North shore. Whilst Princeville is very much a group of mainlanders it is safe and secure and I have not heard of any byrglaries are vars being broken into. I visit Kaua’i 2-3 times a year since 94 and stay at Pu’u Po’a. This unit is one of the best and remains reasonably priced. One note of caution. This unit is a challenge for those with mobility issues. It is not suitable for those who find multiple stairs difficult. Indeed Pu’u Po’a was built before people thought about disabled access so no ramps or wheelchair access.

This property blew us away. We knew it would be great but it was much better than expected. We’ve stayed at other condos on Kauai, and this was by far the best one. Everything from cleanliness to small touches and space, inside and out, this place was perfect for us. Thank you thank you thank you!

My wife and I needed to get away as part of an early anniversary celebration. This was a perfect place for us. Great views, quiet and relaxing, gentle sounds of the ocean and roomy. Loved being on north shore this trip and proximity to Hanalei was great. Will look at this property again next trip!

We have stayed in Pu'u Poa several times, but we loved 112 the best due to the incredible views and being on the ground floor that provided extended living space on the grassy area. We also enjoyed the fact that there were additional views from the dining area which brought in cross ventilation to keep things cool. We are looking forward to returning to this location...and for a longer time.

Unparalleled sunsets with Nepali coast to your left and Pacific at your feet. Not to mention snorkeling on Hideaway beach directly below you as well. Excellent location. Staff/management was also very responsive to fixing a ceiling fan (these are critical as indoor climate is dependent upon air circulation without A/C - the natural breeze through the large screen doors kept it very comfortable). Great spot for families with small kids. Would stay here again in a heart beat!
