Wake up looking over the ocean in a property that could feature in Ideal Homes magazine. The photos don’t do justice to how lovely it is. Highly recommended
What an awesome house! Designed to perfection, with beautiful decor, high-quality furniture, gorgeous master bath with a view of the ocean, clean, very well equipped, with probably the best location at this complex. The best part - is your view!!!! From every single room in the house, you can see turquoise water and blue sky... we had to wake up every morning just to catch the sunrise on a huge private green lanai. with plenty of comfortable chairs, couches, coffee tables, etc, ... we also ended up having many dinners outside, instead of going out. Hidden Cove where you can see resting turtles is within walking distance from the house as well as Quinn Bath is around the corner - 0.5 miles. We had a great time, very happy with the house we chose. Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home with us. Highly recommended!
We had a great time at Suzie’s place. It is beautiful decorated and clean. You can’t beat the views. It was really quiet and more like a little cottage than a condo. We truly enjoyed it! We had a couple of issues but hosts were very responsive and tried their best to help out.
We can’t say enough good things about the condo. Beautiful, very up to date, fantastic location, great communications with owner. We definitely recommend!!
The short review: stunning and perfect.... It is everything the photos show off and more. I can promise you that you have not stayed in a condo in Kaua'i like this before and if you have, I want the information. The design is like stepping into a high-end remodel on HGTV. No detail is missed. If you appreciate decor and interior design of where you stay like we do (it's what makes our breaks a condo for us outside of view, which you also win here), you cannot miss this rental. As my oldest daughter said, she felt like an old Hollywood movie star from the 40s. She nailed that review. Other surprises; the lighting is stunning. Dimmers everywhere to set the perfect tone to your trip. We keep finding with condos that people are mixing LED lighting everywhere and it ruins the interior of a living space. Plus, there is a full in-ceiling bluetooth speaker system throughout. If you want to set the most amazing vibe, connect your phone and play the best of Ella Fitzgerald and tell me this stunning condo hasn't transported you in both place and time. It's what we did and we are still talking about it. We will DEFINITELY be back to this stunning rental and this is coming from very picky renters when it comes to design and how a place makes you feel. If that is you and you are looking for a place on the North shore, stop and book this now. It is stunning!
As you pull up, there isn't anything that remarkable, but as you enter and then see the view from the back, you are blown away. The inside design and decor are more than magazine worthy, and the whole vibe is comfort. My party just wanted to stay here, relax, enjoy the view.....
We had a wonderful stay. Location and views of the ocean were great. It is obvious the owner takes great pride in her property. It was beautifully decorated and had everything you would need to make it truly a home away from home.
The condo was very well appointed, clean and very comfortable. Perfect for what we needed. It's located along the shore and we never noticed traffic or neighbors. Occasionally you'd see others walking to/from their place, but overall very quiet location. The view was wonderful and we really enjoyed listening to the waves crash against the rocks at night and in the mornings. Lots of beach equipment available to use. Owners were great. Highly recommend if it suits your needs!
Wow!!! Hands down the most amazing rental I’ve ever booked. The place is absolutely gorgeous with a view you can only dream of! Every morning we looked forward to having coffee on the lanai watching the ocean and the birds. We were even lucky enough to watch whales splashing around! My 9 year old son would get up to watch the sunrise every morning too. The house was better than a 5 star resort with all its amenities to make you feel at home. The house has everything we needed to take with us and explore the beautiful beaches all around us. And the location is key. It was close to everything: beaches, golf course, hikes and shops. Kauai Haven is the perfect location to explore. Lastly, the host, Suzie, was very easy to communicate with and extremely accommodating when we wanted to extend our stay. We can’t wait to hear back to this property.
We had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful property. Peaceful location, with a fantastic view across the ocean. We saw whales from the lanai, which was very special. The property itself is very well appointed, we all had a great sleep in the very comfortable beds. We hope to come back and would absolutely recommend!
Great location and terrific communication
Unit is completely updated and very comfortable, clean, and modern. The location of the unit on the bluff, single level, corner position made it ideal for quite relaxation and viewing the whales, albatross, Nenes, and the ocean’s mood. Lovely. Would return.
Loved the property. Included everything we needed for cooking, hanging out, sleeping, and exploring the island. Especially loved the outdoor patio. We watched whales off the coast everyday and found the nearby access to Turtle Cove where we were able to see a ton of turtles. Such a great spot to explore the north side of the island and easy access to Hanalei for fun restaurants. Highly recommend!
Unit is very well appointed and decor is fabulous. Upon arrival we encountered the primary bed was not made (sheets were rewashed as we weren't sure they had been), towels in dryer, dirty bath mats and kitchen counter, and carpet in unit had not been vacuumed. We took it all in stride, found what we needed and cleaned it ourselves. All in all - the stay was fabulous.
It was a wonderful experience and we are lucky to find a place like this. The location is amazing and the rooms are well appointed. The host is professional and responsive. Highly recommend!
We loved everything about it. Beautiful space, great location. Would love to stay again.
I echo all the previous reviews, this is a stunning condo located in a quiet neighborhood with a great view of the ocean over the cliffs. We had a couple days of heavy rain during our week's stay and we didn't care one bit to stay in! Very well laid out with every detail well thought out. My favorite part was being able to look out on the ocean from the shower! Amazing! Would rent this place again in a heartbeat! Thanks for sharing your slice of heaven!
We were a party of 4 (two couples) and had a lovely stay of 7 nights, and overall I would stay here again, but it came with a couple small caveats that may or may not impact you as a traveller.
First off and on a positive note, the pictures don’t do it justice. Everything was more spacious and even nicer than we thought! Though the guest bedroom seemed like an afterthought in the design of the house and was smaller than expected, which I realize now was the reason for the lack of photos for this particular room. If you are travelling with children or a single person then it works but two couples is tight (make sure you take the master!)
The house was well equipped with everything we needed, minus a decent coffee maker. To clarify, there were the following options: 1 Keurig machine and 1 4-cup Breville coffee pot that had seen better days. I think ideally they want you to use the Keurig but we’d already gone to Kauai coffee company and purchased ground coffee and when we ventured to the nearby Food Land, the Keurig cups were super expensive. So we made do with our tiny and well used 4-cup drip machine. Got the job done but a bigger and more new machine would have been nice.
Views from the private and well manicured lawn are of rolling waves on an ocean that touches the sky. You may not get better than this! Outside seating was excellent and comfortable with an overhang to keep you dry during the frequent rain spells.
Everything you need for the beach is provided - chairs, umbrellas, floaties, towels, etc! There are several beaches within a 10-20min drive depending on where you’re headed. The provisioning of beach gear drastically improved our stay as we frequented the nearby Hanalei beach.
My final qualm was the check out checklist…including the washing and drying of all towels and stripping of beds. This became common during COVID but seems to have stuck around, and even though there is a cleaning fee attached to this rental, the request was there with a $15 penalty fee for every wash load the cleaners had to do if you didn’t. Both our parties had very early flights and we checked out by 6am, which meant doing laundry late the following evening and after showers in the morning (which of course meant getting up 2 hours earlier than planned since the wash and dry take close to 90 min). Good to be aware ahead of your stay.
On that note, I will say that the issues aside, it was a lovely stay and a lovely home overall. I do recommend!
Great stay at a very clean, modern, and well-appointed home. The place was very updated with great lighting, flooring, and special touches. We loved the stay and highly recommend.
We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect place to Honeymoon and relax than Suzi’s little piece of paradise . From the initial contact with her, to reserving, to opening the door and taking it all in….my goodness ! Her little condo/cottage is like staying at a 5 star hotel. Relaxing and taking in the views daily on the back porch/lanai was indescribable . Inside and out is perfection …If we could give 10 stars, we would ! Thank you, Suzi ! 😊☀️🌴
We loved staying at this gorgeous little hide away at the edge of the cliff. So much detail went into designing this property, from the double head shower/rain shower to the moldings, to the beautiful lighting, furniture, and sconces. It was so lovely to have beach towels, chairs, snorkeling, and beach umbrellas available as well. We did not want to leave! We can’t wait to come back!
Perfectly located in Princeville and a beautiful ocean front Property with a view from every room.
It was clean and well stocked from kitchen utensils/tools to beach gear. The beach towels, cooler and chairs made our beach days so convenient. We had some brief and insignificant technical issues which Suzie and Andy got back to us within minutes (or rather seconds) to explain how things worked. When we get to return to the island we will definitely want to come back here! And thank you for the welcome gifts:)
This was a gorgeous property! We loved all the amenities! Highly recommend this property!
This was the most amazing place to stay, it was so quite and relaxing. Even though there were plenty of TV’s, wifi and more we never turned on any electronics. It was better then staying at a luxury hotel in my opinion. I will most definitely book this again and stay longer. It was truly a home away from home.
We loved our stay in this gorgeous home. The location is amazing with views of the ocean. We loved watching the sunrise each morning over the cliffs. I would definitely stay here again.
This property both inside and out we’re beautiful! Interior was lovely and had everything we needed! The view outside-looking to the ocean- stunning!
Gorgeous property that has an amazing design flair. Amazing view. Extremely well equipped kitchen and the Master Suite was exceptional. Very quiet area and met some very friendly neighbors. The owner is extremely responsive, answering in a matter of moments. We had some questions when we first arrived and they were answered promptly.
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful house right next to the cliffs and a stunning view to the ocean..
This place had everything and has thought of everything! Check in and parking were easy! We decided to activate the ac on day 2 and that was quick and easy and they worked great! The beach supplies were super helpful (boogie boards, snorkels, fins, noodles, chairs,towels, etc). We loved having our coffee out back in the morning overlooking the cliff and watching the sunrise!
This was the most beautiful apartment I‘ve ever seen! The interior was exquisite and very tasteful. And the location could not be beat, you even had a view of the sea from the main shower. We loved the place and will definitely come back!
The furnishings and amenities in this unit are exceptional - every detail and convenience was carefully considered! The best part was the private lanai and yard overlooking the Pacific Ocean...a perfect place to lounge, read, have a drink/meals, and watch the sunrise/sunset. Prime location for enjoying the amenities in Princeville (walking trails, golf, grocery, etc.) and just a few minutes to activities in Hanalei. Easy check-in/check-out with electronic lock access; although, we didn't want to move out!!
The cottage condo was everything we wanted and more. Impeccably decorated, fully stocked kitchen, room to stretch out, an incredible view and the most amazing sunrises and sunsets. Suzie was more than helpful and we would go back anytime.
Beautiful, relaxing, everything you need.
This property was gorgeous. It was like staying in a beautiful picture. All amenities imaginable were available to us. From snorkel gear, to housewares to comfy beds. This place had it all! We had a quick question about the air conditioner and Suzie responded within minutes. We will always stay here in the future!
Beautiful property up on the ocean cliffs. It’s in a very quite area.
There isn't much I can say about this AMAZING property that hasn't already been said. The decor is sublime, the location is perfect, every amenity has been included, the beds are comfy, the linens are great, the kitchen is very well equipped including quality pots pans and appliances, there are high-end designer touches everywhere. Even yoga mats!
The lanai wraps around so you have plenty of space to watch the sunrise and the ocean. Lots and lots of furniture choices to enjoy outdoors.
Huge selection of beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. to take to the perfect Hanalie beach just a few minutes away.
Very quite and chill neighborhood. Easy free parking.
(The A/C was not working when we were there, but I think they will get it fixed soon...but check on that if it's important to you. )
Great communication with the owners.
If you are on the fence about spending a bit more to stay in a five star place, don't hesitate - book this one right away. It's sooo worth it!
The house was fabulous. Very well stocked for all our needs both in the kitchen and for trips to the beach. We visited in March and enjoyed starting and ending our days watching for whales from the lanai. We’d definitely return to this beautifully decorated hone in a quiet community.
The property had everything we needed and more. Top notch kitchen and very comfortable furniture as well. The decorations were very tasteful. The view of the ocean fantastic. Overall Well Done. Best VRBO property ever.
The location of this property is perfect if you are looking for a quiet, more relaxing vacation, which was perfect for us. We were still able to drive into the towns surrounding us, which we did, but coming back and just hanging out here was the BEST. The unit is decorated beautifully and it is equipped with everything you would possibly need. I highly recommend this unit.
This was one of the few times that a property was better than presented. The house was immaculate and thoughtfully decorated. Everything was high quality, beds were comfortable, the kitchen was equipped with just about anything you could want. And then there was the view sitting on a cliff over the ocean. Just magic!! Yes we have already reserved Suzie’s place for next year.
The home is very comfortable, well-considered, and well-equipped – it met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations. The view is breathtaking, the cottage is just as pictured and Suzie was quick to respond to any questions. Kitchen was fabulously equipped and the beds were really comfortable. The lanai had stunning views, beautiful sounds of Oecan waves and Birds chirping. An absolute paradise.
Suzie's condo is a superb place to get away from it all on Kauai. I especially loved the lanai area overlooking the ocean, but the entire condo is clean and beautifully decorated. We'll definitely be back.
Absolutely stunning place to stay while in Kauai. Great location.
Decor throughout the entire home is incredible and really well thought out. Our kids loved the boogie boards and snorkeling equipment. Thanks for a great trip!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would happily return. The home is very comfortable, well-considered, and well-equipped – it met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations. The home is part of a resort community (as are many of the properties in Princeville), but the unit felt very private. A quick drive to Hanalei Bay and convenient to the north shore beaches. Highly recommend staying here!
This is a fabulous upgraded condo with an amazing view. Can’t wait to book again!
This is a lovely property. Exactly as advertised. We were particularly impressed with the decor and how well stocked the kitchen was. Also the beach toys/supplies were the best I’ve ever seen at a rental.
We stayed at this lovely cottage before and had no hesitation in booking it again once we could return to Kauai. The view is breathtaking, the cottage is just as pictured and Suzie and her team were quick to respond to any questions. While we love to walk around the area, we especially appreciated finding information in the cottage on bike rentals this time from a guy in Hanalei who delivered them to us. Turned out to be a great way to see all of Princeville. We look forward to our next visit.
This was the perfect place to stay to enjoy the beauty of Kauai.

My wife and I recently stayed for 9 nights and loved this place. One of the best VRBO rentals we have ever stayed in, anywhere in the world. Everything was accurately displayed and disclosed (in fact the photos of the exterior and interior don't really do it justice!). The kitchen was fabulously equipped and the beds really comfortable. The lanai had stunning views, and we often got out of bed early to meditate and read on one of the comfortable chairs. I appreciated that the TV was easy to figure out, and that they had Netflix set up already, and we logged in to our Amazon Prime account no problem. The house book was well done and super informative. When we learned the exact location of the unit we were at first concerned about being next to a Princeville St. on a cul-de-sac, with parking close by, but we almost never heard a car drive by and/or park. Yeah! The property manager was incredibly responsive to our questions and needs, and even helped us navigate the Covid rules for entrance to Hawaii. Importantly, she was never hovering over our reservation, and only communicated when necessary. What else? Oh, we loved that fact that instead of stocking the condo with old books that guests were probably not going to ever read, she had quite a few lovely picture books of Kauai. Her interior decorating (apparently with the help of a professional designer) has to be seen to be believed. In fact, we have our own rental in Mexico, and were highly impressed. If you want to stay on the North Shore, on the ocean, then you could not do better than this condo!!
great home with a great view. the house had all the amenities you could need. i've stayed at a lot of homeshares and was very pleased with this home.
Our stay was amazing! My husband and two kids 9 and 11 and myself had plenty of room to relax and enjoy all that this condo has to offer. Waking up to the beautiful view every morning was my favorite part. The home has everything you need for a great vacation. It felt like a home away from home. We utilized the beach chairs and ice chest almost every day, we were so thankful to have them. My only suggestion would be to add an AC to the 2nd bedroom. Other than that it was pretty perfect.
The property was as beautiful in person as it was on the rental listing. My husband and and I enjoyed the space a time. The only issue and this is no means the owner fault but we were unable to Utilize
This home was perfect. While we admittedly did have some trouble finding it initially (our fault, don't trust Google, trust Suzie's instructions!), once we found it and checked in, we couldn't have been happier. We were travelling on our honeymoon and this was the last leg of a fairly long trip. We showed up pretty exhausted from a visit to a resort in Maui that was CROWDED and as soon as we arrived in Kauai we felt at home.
Suzie's home was perfect. Really. I don't even want to give it 5 stars because I want it to be available next time we visit :) The views, the interior, etc. The kitchen had just about everything we needed too. Suzie also had plenty of beach supplies -- chairs, snorkels, umbrella, etc. which was extremely convenient.
We would highly recommend staying with Suzie. This couldn't have been a better end to our trip and we really do hope to visit the island again in the future (and to stay here!). We did a lot of research on where to stay and we chose right :)
Great communication. Impeccable clean! The condo had high quality furniture and was well decorated. The washer and dryer were an unexpected necessary perk. Count yourself lucky if you are fortunate enough to be able book this place!
Really unbelievable! The decor is beautiful and was extremely clean. Walk out the back door and have your own lawn. Patio with furniture all first class. You can see the most amazing sunrise and sunset without getting out of your seat! Kitchen was stocked with everything you need and all appliances are in excellent condition. Bedrooms were very comfortable! An additional ac unit in the 2nd bedroom would be a plus. This unit felt like a home since it is separate from the other multi-level condos. We didn’t use the pool because we had so many other excursions lined up. Went for a run and walk every morning and the neighborhood is beautiful and all very well kept. This place is 5-stars in anyone’s book! If we make it back to Kauai we would not want to stay anywhere else!
This condo was great! It feels like your own little cottage with an incredible ocean view. It is very nicely decorated with many amenities. It was very clean and comfortable. The area is very nice and safe. Very walkable. Princeville and Hanalei are close by with shopping and dining and beautiful beaches. The host is a good communicator and very responsive. Note: Not sure how long it will last but the road to Hanalei is currently one lane with scheduled times that it is closed. It is inconvenient but you just have to plan your outings in that direction. Not a big deal.
My husband and I came to Kauai for our honeymoon last week and we absolutely loved our time there. One of our favorite parts was getting to come back to this beautiful condo. Every detail was thought of - from the labels on the light switches to the surround sound speakers throughout the condo. Suzie has thought of absolutely everything to make your stay perfect! It is situated in a really great location - close to Hanalei, Kilauea, and many beautiful beaches. It was such a wonderful experience, we didn't want to leave :)
We had a great time in this location. We were there right in the thick of the historic rain and flooding that recently fell, and this condo was a great place to wait out the storm. We still had a beautiful view, were able to relax and have our family on top of each other so we could wait until the skies cleared. The location is very close to center of Princeville shopping center with lots of great places to eat and Lappert's ice cream was amazing. The beds we so comfortable and all the furnishing and finishes were so high end comfy. We were able to get a lot of use out of the back deck once the storm cleared. Bathrooms were really nice with the rain shower head and the place was spotless. One of the best things was the tradewinds, so peaceful and always blowing, no need for A/C, and we were able to sleep with the windows open and fall asleep to the sound of the crashing waves. We were even lucky enough to see a whale out in the ocean from our porch!
We absolutely loved Kauai. So much natural beauty (lots of green, amazing landscape), beautiful beaches and hiking.. The Kauai Haven rental is mind blowingly perfect and relaxing. It’s difficult to even express how amazing this rental is. It is true perfection outside - beautiful property grounds, picture perfect cliff views to the water, really quiet location. Inside had everything you could ever want and I’d say it’s above and beyond even the best 5 star suites in any hotel anywhere. Absolutely zero negatives with this property: impeccable attention to detail in design, decor and accommodation. Whole house has tons of smart features: fast WiFi, so many TVs, whole house sound system that connects to your own phone, charging station at entryway. Very private and walkable area with incredible views, some games to play, Kauai movies, beautiful bathrooms, comfortable bed. Can’t say enough great things about this property - don’t hesitate to book it because you’ll be missing out if someone else books before you.
Thank you so much for a lovely place to stay. It was a joy to be in Kauai. We would love to come again.
Clean, beautiful set up, felt like I was home. Lighting was amazing + so comfortable. Quiet at night. Loved hearing the ocean every night. It rained a lot but it wasn’t bad due to the beautiful accommodations. Susie you did an amazing job, the best rental I’ve been in to date. Mahalo, Carol
We loved being able to see the ocean from the shower & bedroom. The outdoor furniture was very comfortable- we spent mornings eating breakfast while watching the whales & reading. It is just a perfect spot. Quiet with no neighbor noise whatsoever. We didn’t want to leave!
The view is spectacular! The furnishings are great quality. Excellent WiFi. All appliances are new and very clean, as is the entire unit.
What an amazing property! Words cannot do justice to this wonderful Princeville retreat, but here goes...
My wife and I stayed here for five wonderful nights relaxing inside and out on the many comfortable seating options, enjoying music through the whole home speaker system, and generally just lounging about while watching whales spout and play in our expansive, direct ocean view.
As a rare single-level condominium, Kauai Haven affords the privacy and solitude of a house. It is outfitted generously with tremendous attention to detail in the furnishings, décor, lighting, entertainment systems, and fully equipped kitchen. The owners even provide gear for a wonderful beach experience with umbrellas, chairs, and snorkeling equipment. There wasn’t anything we needed that wasn’t already accounted for by our hosts. That is a real art!
Kauai Haven is an experience unto itself with its amazing views, gentle ocean breezes, and peaceful setting. We found it difficult to tear ourselves away for our daily excursions to the many nearby beaches. In fact, my wife declared on the first evening that she wasn’t going to leave – EVER! Sadly, reality prevailed and we did eventual catch our flight back to the mainland, but we are already scheming about a return visit very soon. Many thanks to Suzie and her team for opening this exquisite property to us and making our experience one of a kind.
First class all the way.. Beautifully decorated single story condo with all the amenities provided. We enjoyed having a glass of wine outside on the lanai overlooking the ocean. The beds are very comfortable and it was so relaxing being able to hear the surf at night before drifting off to sleep. Great location for north shore vacation. Highly recommend and we will return to Kauai Haven on our next trip to Kauai.
We loved sitting outside and enjoying the gorgeous ocean views across the grass. The birds that frequented the lawn area were fun to watch. The inside of the condo was beautifully decorated and had absolutely everything we needed for a wonderful stay.
