Falling asleep to the sound of the Pacific Ocean and waking up to the sunrise through the bedroom window was incredible! Property is everything we expected!
The Kauai Haven was all round exceptional. The large windows made it easy to watch the sunrise come up over the water. The condo is conveniently located near beaches and restaurants. I recommend choosing to stay here, it checks off every box.
We loved everything about our stay at Kauai Haven. It’s beautifully located ona cliff overlooking the north shore of the island with all of the amenities one could want. The hosts even provide beach chairs, umbrellas, and snorkeling gear. The pictures online don’t really do it justice!
Stayed in this condo with our son and his wife. The condo is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The view from the back porch is stunning. The pictures do not do it justice. We also really enjoyed being directly above "Turtle Cove". Took the short hike several times during our stay.
I was a bit concerned when I arrived and realized the condo did not have A/C. Very common in Kauai. However, I had never rented a condo without A/C. They provide numerous fans and we were comfortable throughout our stay.
Absolutely beautiful coming back
Comfortable, beautiful, and thoughtfully accessorized. Prime oceanfront location. Convenient to all North Shore beaches and amenities. A 5 +
Felt like it was home. Everything we needed. Beautiful inside and beautiful view.
Wow! I can’t say enough about this property and it’s manager. The location on the edge of the cliff down to the waters at Turtle Cove provides amazing sunrises from all windows and the lanai. The space was great for two parents and their adult children (who do ok sharing a bed). We had everything we needed to cook some meals. Foodland at Princeville had great options. I found it better than the store in Lihue. Four chairs, two umbrellas, boogie boards and a cooler made our daily activity trips easy. Suzie was such an excellent manager replying to my inquiries quickly and thoroughly. This property is a don’t miss. You will NOT be disappointed!!! Mahalo Suzie!!
The property was impressively clean and extremely well stocked with everything we could ever need while on vacation. The bed was very comfortable and listening to the ocean every night was dreamy. There are TVs in every room and the space was nicely decorated and comfortable. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the birds and sunset in the evenings. I'd love to stay again when we are back in Princeville.
The condo is beautiful and the location cannot be beat on the north side of the island. Directly overlooking the ocean, nice trade wind breezes, beautifully decorated and well appointed. Would highly recommend!
very smooth check in and stay.
What a wonderful place! The condo has a spectacular view (especially for sunset) and is right at the trailhead to Turtle Cave. The location is perfect. You can tell that the owners put so much thought and care into this condo. Not your typical vacation rental at all. The decor and quality of furniture, kitchen supplies, appliances, etc., is really just top notch. You feel like you are staying in someone's nice home – not a rental at all. I would highly recommend staying here for your visit to the North of Kauai.
We were impressed with the style ,comfort , and overall cleanliness of the condo. Very well stocked and the view is breath taking !
This is an amazingly beautiful condo- more like staying in a home than a vacation rental. The views were amazing- we could actually see the sunrise and the sunset from the balcony. There is a fun trail down to a cave right off the property. It is the perfect place to stay for all of your north shore excursions! We hope to return one day!
Quiet, restful retreat in a beautiful location with views that can not be described. Perfectly appointed condo with everything you need and more. A privilege to stay here and can't wait to return.
This condo is located on the cliff of the ocean. The views are spectacular, condo is clean, the kitchen has all necessities for cooking. There’s beach chairs, cooler, beach towels you can’t go wrong. I would definitely stay again.
Suzie’s rental is easily one of the best rental properties I have ever stayed in. The home is gorgeous and the finishes make it feel so cozy and welcoming, yet luxurious and designer. The views are absolutely exceptional—stunning ocean views from both bedrooms and the living room. We kept the windows open our entire stay so we could continuously hear the crashing of the waves! The home has all of the amenities you could possibly need for your stay, though with the convenient location of the property, you won’t need to spend much time at home! The surrounding community feels very safe and well-maintained. Check-in and check out were a breeze, as well. I could truly go on and on. Overall, we enjoyed the ocean views from the lanai and the quick drive to Hanalei. We would absolutely stay again on our next trip to Kauai!
We arrived and found the condo to be beautiful with wonderful views of the ocean.
We would absolutely stay here again! Loved
the North end of the island. Great communication with the owner. Highly recommend this condo!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kauai and this property in Princeville was perfect for our family of 3! It had a fabulous view of the ocean, it was quiet and in a wonderful location. It was clean and had a lot of kitchen supplies. We really appreciated having the beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards as well. We will definitely return here for our next visit to the beautiful island! Thank you for everything!
My kids and I absolutely LOVED staying at this beautiful condo! We enjoyed hearing the ocean waves from the bedroom windows, and the close proximity to the turtle cove. Excellent location! The condo itself is so up-to-date and had everything we needed. Absolutely phenomenal trip, we will definitely be back again for the summer! Mahalo!
If you’re the type that enjoys sipping coffee (or tea, or whatever) from the balcony of your well appointed home away from home, while listening to tropical birds singing and watching pods of whales from every window, this is your next VRBO. If you don’t, you’ll probably hate Kauai.
The flat was immaculate and extremely well appointed. Everything is well thought out. In addition to an excellent, fully equipped kitchen, there are plenty of small appliances, dishes, and cutlery available. We cooked dinner and breakfast during several our days here.
And that’s just the flat. The location is perfect. A short drive south drops you quickly into the some night life and north is the AMAZING Na’Pali coast. Think hiking, beaches, waves, small beach towns…awesome stuff.
Excellent for a couple trying to steal away a few days of alone time (yes please) or a small family, this is the right place for you. While the pictures of the property are accurate, they don’t do it justice. You won’t be sorry.
Oh, and did I mention the WHALES! They’re right there.
What a beautiful condo. Very cozy with everything you need. Amazing views of the ocean. We saw whales, turtles, dolphins, and kayakers just from the view of the condo. We also appreciate quality beach equipment. Very comfortable beds. Thank you!
Beautiful property, wonderful host, we even saw whales to top things off!
We had an amazing time during our stay and loved being right next to the ocean!
It was a beautiful condo and very well stocked with necessities. The view was gorgeous! We saw rainbows and whales nearly everyday!
We loved our stay here, especially all the whale sightings right from the lanai -- or the bedroom windows! We shouldn't have paid all that money for a whale watching boat tour when we could have stayed at the condo and enjoyed the same view in greater comfort! We also had double rainbows just feet from our lanai on several mornings! What more could you ask for while in Kauai? The interior of the condo was clean and well-maintained, and true to the pictures. Everything you needed was provided.
We had a great stay! Loved the unit. Easy to get in and out for our daily excursions on this beautiful island. Definitely saw whales while enjoying the view from the balcony. Thank you!
Excellent stay and exactly as advertised and as we had hoped. Super-clean and we’ll-stocked in every way. We would definitely stay here again.
We appreciated the speedy communication with the owner and her working with us around check-in! The condo offers beautiful views, so mesmerizing and we loved listening to the ocean. There was some light construction happening next door throughout our stay which was a little bit of.a bummer, but we still enjoyed the deck :-) it was a relaxing spot to vacation and walkable to Hideaway beach if you’re up for it!
We loved this place! Right on the ocean where we could watch whales swimming by, well-equipped house and responsive hosts. Not sure what else ine could ask for. Mahalo!
Can't praise this location enough. It was an incredible stay. The condo is fully stocked with anything you could want. Only complaints would be the showers which could definitely use new shower heads for a perfect experience. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the view was stunning.
Designed and styled beautifully, very well appointed making our stay enjoyable!
This adorable beach bungalow (condo) exceeded our expectations. The pictures online depict the experience you will have perfectly -- if anything it was better than it appears.
Everything you will need for the kitchen is provided. We even cooked steaks on the grill near the condo. The deck is amazing with a picturesque view. We had coffee, lunch and dinner outside any meals we were home.
We can't wait to go back! Mahalo
I had a special request when I was making the reservation, and the owner was SO easy to work with. Everything was clean, and it looked just like the pictures depicted.....just beautiful. I would recommend again and again. We're so thankful we found it!
Best place on the island, and efficient!! Wonderful amenities, the bed was so comfortable, just as before, I have back problems and the primary bed was SO comfortable!! Love to hear the surf right outside, as well. Tons of beach toys, and close to shopping and also food!! Will be back again sometime soon!! So grateful for this gem!
Kindest regards, Cheyenne
Wonderful stay - furnishing as advertised, location great. Beach chairs/umbrellas a nice touch
We had heard Kauai was relaxing and peaceful and this property gave us the perfect spot to enjoy all that the island offered and return to our peaceful oasis at the end of each day. Beautiful and comfortable furnishings and amenities make you feel pampered. Perfect getaway for our 25th anniversary.
Amazing views, updated condo that allows you to unwind and feel like home. Host was great and helped us out along the way! Only two comments thelat were slight inconvenience, neighbors upstairs are heavy footed and you hear them early and late, no AC which thankfully for us wasn't an issue. I would still highly recommend and come back..
The condo is beautifully decorated, immaculate and our stay was amazing. All amenities were as advertised and we appreciated the towels and beach gear. Note that the windows have to be left open (our stay was in august) and even with the tradewinds and fans, the condo was on the warm side. Also noting for anyone visiting with kids that the onsite pool is very deep. Neither of these things affected our stay in a negative way!
All the views were spectacular and sleeping with the sound of the ocean was the best!
Fabulous cottage and location.
We had the best time! The condo is perfect! Nicely decorated, everything you need, most comfortable beds. The view is beyond amazing, we really didn’t want to leave. The trail to see the turtles is right outside your door is a must do. We would definitely re-book. My daughter did say the drainage in the guest shower is very slow. Having all of the snorkeling gear and other fun beachy things was an added plus and very nice to have had access to. Thank you, thank you!
We loved our stay and would definitely recommend this property. So well furnished and amazing views! Couldn't be happier : )
Suzie was a gracious hostess! She promptly answered any questions I had thru out the booking process and our stay. The property is just as described!! It was beautiful and spacious enough for my husband and I as well as our two teen boys. The unit was exceptionally clean! Proximity to grocery and beaches was perfect. Most places in Hawaii do not offer AC. We figured we could handle it coming from triple digit temps. The first three days there were hardly any trade winds which made the unit very warm. We ended up having to purchase a few extra fans just to be semi comfortable. Thankfully there was an ACE just around the corner though if fans are needed I recommend buying from Walmart or Target before heading up to Princeville for far better pricing! On days when the trade winds were strong the unit was very comfortable but when they weren’t, especially in the evenings it was rather warm. If you are use to having AC like we are then I recommend purchasing a few extra fans and donating them after your stay. The location of the unit has AMAZING views! Sunrise and sunset are breathtaking! The stars at night are heavenly! The location unfortunately lends itself to the lack of privacy. We eventually learned to pay no attention to the foot traffic and hanging out in the evenings for sunset watching. We did opt to dine inside several evenings sadly due to being on “display” out on the lanai. The spectacular views made up for the lack of privacy. This unit truly is a 5 Star unit!
Beautiful in every way. We loved coming back to a beautiful home to relax, listen to the ocean, and plan the next day’s adventure. We will absolutely choose to go back to beautiful Kauai and will stay at Kauai Haven!
All of the reviews are correct. Do not hesitate to book this beautiful property. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay. Comfy beds, great views and location, modern updated appliances, beautiful decor, easy communication with the owner...everything! You will not regret your decision to select this condo.
This condo was terrific in every way - great ocean view, thoughtful touches throughout, clean and comfortable, perfect location, easy to understand instructions, everything worked perfectly. I really tried to think of something to be a little disappointed in, but couldn’t! Just book it - you wont be sorry.
Wonderful location - very short drive to top North Shore beaches and Hanalei and Kilauea towns, with access right out the door to (mildly treacherous) paths to the rocky coast (no beach) at the bottom of the cliffs. Unbelievable lanai right above the sea and the design is magical — sleeping every night soothed by the ocean breeze and sound of the waves. Though a downstairs unit, it felt completely private and we didn’t hear the folks upstairs at all. No AC was no problem at all — the fans do the job in every room and the breeze was much nicer than sterile AC would be. We really appreciated all the beach accessories — chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear — and the owners attention to all the details. Grateful for a wonderful week.
We found this place to be comfortable and beautiful and loved the location. Perfect for a family of three with a teenager who loved having her own room. Sleeping to the sound of waves crashing was awesome and coffee on the deck (when it wasn’t pouring) and watching whales was the perfect start to each day.
Beautiful condo right on the water! Comfortable furniture and beds. Great location. Outstanding views. Small but sweet. A bit too tight for us, 2 couples traveling together with back to back bedrooms and back to back bathrooms too. A well designed small space though.
We love everything about this rental! This was our 3rd time staying here and wouldn’t change a thing!
Almost can’t describe how wonderful this place was - it was a spectacular experience. Beautifully decorated living space fronting the ocean with waves crashing on the reef just below the bedroom and living room windows. Whales swimming near shore almost every day. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We feel privileged to have spent 3 weeks in this paradise. It doesn’t get much better than this. Great experience with booking, checking in and checking out. Very accurate description of the unit in listing. Zero complaints. Will be back.
This home is immaculate and beautifully decorated! We loved everything about it, and especially waking up each morning to the 180-degree view of the ocean where we enjoyed our coffee and watching the birds and whales from the deck. We plan to stay here again on our next visit to Kaua'i!
The property is sincerely outstanding. Pristine! Clean, immaculately decorated. Views from living room, both bedrooms. On cliff overlooking the beautiful ocean, whales in front morning and dusk. This unit has everything you could think of. Can’t say enough about the unit!
If you love a spectacular view of rolling waves, occasional whale sightings, beautiful accommodations, then reserve this place quickly! We’ll be back as soon as we can!
A beautiful abode on a beautiful island. Couldn't have asked for anything more.
Well, perhaps a bit more sunshine, but no finer place to be holed up in the Kauai rain.
Oh, and the sound and smell of the winter surf crashing just below the bedroom windows was about as restorative as it gets. Never wanted to leave my bed in the morning!
I would highly recommend this location and property to anyone visiting Kauai. Not only are the views are spectacular, but the accommodations are 5-star. The beds are comfortable and the place is quiet at night. The Princeville location makes travel to Hanalei Bay and the North Shore quick and easy. And there are lots of great grocery stores and places to eat that are very close. You can also take a 15-minute walk to spectacular views of Hanalei Bay. There’s even a trail out the doorstep that is challenging, but has great views.
We even saw some whales spouts from the lanai. We would stay here again without a doubt.
The condo is fully equipped and a lot is thought out. Which shows that an owner cares and that feels good to a traveler.
I was looking forward to utilizing the speaker system that is listed as throughout it didn't raise in volume at all. The carpet was deeply stained but we didn't let that be a game changer. When on vacation I don't look forward to having to do laundry or strip my bed of my sheets. This brought a time crunch for me in the morning as I had to plan around doing that instead of enjoying my last few hours before going to the airport. Little frustrations can add up and I would encourage Suzi to let that be.
Mahalo to Kauai as she is always beautiful and generous.
We originally scheduled our vacation for April 2020, but had to reschedule multiple times due to COVID (thanks, Suzy, for being so flexible!). We finally made it here for Thanksgiving week, and we were delighted with the condo. The ocean view was amazing, and we spent quite a bit of time sitting on the balcony and soaking in the view. The condo itself was spacious, very well-furnished, and beautifully decorated. Groceries from Foodland was only a couple of minutes away - we even ordered our turkey dinner there. I do agree with another reviewer that having to try to wash/dry towels on the morning of departure is a hassle (the washing/drying cycle takes a long time to complete). One other minor point is that there was a discrepancy regarding departure times (Suzy said 10 am, but Vrbo said 11 am on our reservation). Overall, we had a fantastic stay, and I would love to come back here for another stay in the future.
What a pleasant stay! We spent mornings having coffee and enjoying the fantastic ocean view! Beds were comfortable and the neighborhood was peaceful. Lots of space four the four of us to relax. Hope to stay here again in the future!
Property was beautiful.
Quiet surroundings set on a cliffside overlooking the ocean.. Ideal sleeping conditions with open screened windows to view the stars and listen to the sea from your bedroom. The condo is beautifully decorated and well stocked including everything needed in the way of beach equipment. Great vacation!
Definitely enjoyed renting the property. It lived up to all other reviews. I would highly recommend it to others.
I’ve been coming to Hawaii and Kauai in particular for more than 30 years, and this is one of the nicest rentals I’ve ever enjoyed. It’s a beautiful ocean front location with great style and flare. Everything was so comfortable and so well furnished. I would highly recommend a stay here. We loved it!

Even better than the pictures showed. We walked in and thought we never wanted to leave. Everything you need, comfortable beds, very clean and the decor and lighting is amazing! Great detail went into this condo. Suzi was so helpful and informative. I am hoping to get a chance to stay in this beautiful home again sometime.
Very cozy beautifully decorated. Great location to many things. The deck is the best to watch the sunset and sunrise! Right on the water such an amazing spot!
This was our second time to this lovely Condo. We love the location right on the cliffs at Princeville - private and it was so wonderful to go to sleep and wake up listening to the waves of the ocean and watching the sun come up and rest. the condo is beautifully appointed, clean and comfortable. Location is great - very easy to get to different places in Princeville area.
Absolutely incredible condo. Owners have provided everything for a great day at the beach. Fully furnished kitchen with everything you need to cook a meal and enjoy a beautiful sunrise or sunset. The view was amazing and we fell asleep listening to waves. Beautifully furnished. Loved the surround system. Would definitely return to this beautiful condo and would highly recommend for a stay on the north shore area.
Absolutely beautiful property!! Could not have been happier with the condo, the location, and Princeville. Suzie was great to communicate with. The only issue we had was dealing with the road closure in Hanalei. We definitely knew this ahead of time but didn't realize how few restaurants were in Princeville Plaza & when we arrived on Monday evening everything was already closed. Other than that our week was incredible & we would definitely stay at this beautiful condo again.
This condo was beautifully decorated and the amenities were especially nice. We really enjoyed the music system! Great snorkel gear, chairs and umbrella. The only surprise was how close the gate was to our lanai for people to head down to the sea turtle cave. Perhaps the grass path is a shortcut for guests staying in a different building. Suzie was amazing to work with and very accomodating.
I can't say enough about this property. The decor is stunning and the owners have clearly taken care to think of every possible way to make the condo comfortable and luxurious. Our family of four had plenty of space as our two daughters don't mind sharing a bed. The view is spectacular. We felt from the bedrooms like we were staying on a cruise ship with the water right out our windows. Everything you need is there, including beach chairs, snorkel gear, laundry. This is how all owners should take care of their properties. Thank you!
We were amazed by the location and the lenai overlooking the ocean. Suzie’s place was impeccably clean, beautifully decorated, and fully equipped with everything you could need, including a fully stocked kitchen and beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, boogie board, snorkels). We would not hesitate to stay here again on our next trip to Kauai.
