We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jeff's property. The property was clean and neat and close to the most beautiful beach we have ever experienced, Hanalei Beach. Our Kauai honeymoon was a wonderful experience, and Jeff's property enhanced our stay. If you are from a quiet and rural area as we are, you should know that a high volume of cars pass by between 8 pm and 10 pm, making sleep impossible. Still, the sounds of cars and trucks were a minor inconvenience. The property is truly wonderful and you will love it. We are grateful to Jeff for his hospitality.

Great way to spend a staycation, the bungalow is close to Haena and Limahuli, Hanalei and well stocked with a BBQ grill and beautiful space including a loft! Cool rains greeted us and the white rumped Shama, a song bird just outside the window. Pleasure to reconnect with the Island of Kauai again.

Charming comfortable convenient bungalow minutes from Hanalei as well as all the best beaches in Kauai with an atmosphere that makes you feel like you are staying in exactly the right place to experience paradise in the tropics

Nice and private. The big soaker tub was awesome. No air conditioning, but so many open windows and fans, that it didn't matter. Short hike from the beach (but it is a hike, not a walk). Thank you!

We had the best time staying here. The property was beautiful and loved the large kitchen to cook in. We had everything we needed. It was nice to be able to do a load of laundry. Loved the bungalow being separate so you didn’t hear anyone above you, below you around you. Except the roosters. Lol. The location was perfect. Thank you SO much for sharing your bungalow with us! We loved it!

Surprisingly spacious and with everything promised. One note to visitors, owner and the cleaning person: The unit is ventilated by two attic-type fans up in the A-frame ceiling that turn on automatically via thermostat. When we arrived, the place was very hot. Do NOT use the regular ceiling fans during the day as they blow hot air back down to the unit instead of up to the unused loft to be ventilated away. Owner: consider switching the fans to reverse mode to pull air up.

Very lovely place to stay. Location is convenient to beaches and Hanalei. The home has a nice, sophisticated island vibe. Love the bird activity around the house, though not necessarily the roosters at 3 am! But I guess that's part of the charm. It's necessary to keep the windows at night to keep the place cool, and the two large provided circulating fans were much appreciated. We were very comfortable there.



August 2023
We loved this house, the area, the porch, the pool. Our only gripe was that the washer was not working - we feel it would have been better to have been told in advance.

Our stay was wonderful. Not the biggest cottage but the way it’s made, the kids had their side and we had the master bed room. Kitchen well stocked, enough of everything. It’s close to grocery store and other shops. Location is great, in the middle of all attractions we chose. We underestimated the time it takes to Waimea but drive is always nice. Thanks Jeff and Joanna to share your place.



August 2023
We LOVED our stay here. The place is wonderful and the location is beautiful. Although it is in part of a complex, and there are many other communities nearby, it doesn't feel busy. It is a beautiful area that is just minutes from so many things on the North Shore. I would warn anyone who might be naive like us that the place doesn't have AC. I believe that is standard in Princeville as nearly every neighbor has doors and/or windows open 24/7. I didn't deduct a star because we weren't promised AC. It eventually gets cold enough to sleep at night. I just couldn't nap during the day like I'm used to on vacation. If you only need AC at night during summer, or if it is any other season, I would HIGHLY recommend it. Such a cute place with a great vibe!

Loved this bungalow. Great bed. Wonderful flow-through fresh air. Easy access to shopping and restaurants. Few minutes drive to Hanalei and great beaches.



July 2023
The bungalow was spacious, clean, well furnished and in a great location. My husband and I loved that we could walk to Anini beach in less than 15 minutes. There is a trail from behind the house that takes you to the beach (you have to navigate a somewhat steep descent down; although even with a bad knee I was able to do it). Watched spectacular sunrise and sunset from the beach (yeah- both)!

The condo was beautiful and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay on the island (spices, oil, cooking things, bbq, beach chairs, snorkel/fins, an umbrella, etc.! My mom and I enjoyed the unit and the location. Was perfect for the two of us!

Perfect distance to Hanalei. The host had beach essentials like towels, beach chairs, even an umbrella and boogie board! The kitchen was stocked too. Best part of all was we slept amazing every night we stayed here. Thanks for the best experience in Kauai!!

Very comfortable and well equipped. We felt right at home here. It fit our requirements to a “T”. We are a little spoiled to conditioned air, however, the fans provided by owners made the lack of A/C no big issue. We actually got used to the open air feel of the home.

Good base for exploring the north shore. Close to Hanalei and all that is offers. Clean and has everything you need.

Spacious and beautifully decorated one bedroom house in Princeville. A great place to relax and recharge. Like most places in Kauai this house does not have Air Conditioning, necessitating leaving windows open to cool the inside. Occasional traffic noise could be a problem if you are noise sensitive, but for us it was just a minor annoyance. The place had everything we needed and we would stay here again if we should return to Kauai.

We had a wonderful time at this bungalow on the north shore. The bed was super comfy and we enjoyed all the great amenities including modern kitchen and outdoor grill. Would definitely recommend for those looking for private getaway!

We loved Jeff’s place. This stand-alone house in a beautiful condo complex was first rate. The inside was spacious & luxurious & gorgeous. Everything one could want was provided. The outside space was beautiful full of mature flowering plants & full of bird song. The backyard space included a large fancy deck and a spacious lawn space. A short maybe half mile walk to the beach was along a foot path to a lovely and uncrowded beach where a stream joined the ocean. We hope & plan to stay at this place again & absolutely loved our stay there in April.

Clean, spacious bungalow with everything you need. It’s a great location that’s walkable and the kids really liked the community pool. We’d book it again.

We were not expecting something so nice especially after coming from our place down south (which wasnt bad by any means). I love how there were cooking item like sugar, spices, etc. Left from other guests... so we did not feel bad buying what we wanted to leave there for the next folks. Wonderful spot and fantastic bed!

Accurate online description for this nice detached bungalow. Easy check in/out, clean and well stocked for our week in Princeville. We especially enjoyed the lanai, landscaping and grill for meals. Mahalo.

Overall our stay was very good. House keeping could step it up a couple notches with cleaning the gecko crap around the kitchen patio doors. Otherwise the place was very clean and comfortable. The manager was great to deal with and responded almost immediately when contact was made. Excellent location.

We enjoyed every second of our four week stay in this private cottage rental. This property is very well stocked and comfortable, and it is in a perfect location. We felt like we were alone in a bird sanctuary, the surroundings are just beautiful and lush. We have rented many properties on VRBO, this is absolutely one of our favorites. We would highly recommend this bungalow if it is available. We hope to return ourselves someday.



January 2023
A very delightful home with every comfort in mind. Well stocked kitchen and everything spotlessly clean. Great location and easy to find with owner great directions. We had a great time.

This Princeville home is a “perfect” Kauai getaway location! Beautiful home with everything you need to enjoy your vacation without worries! Fantastic amenities in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to groceries, restaurants, beach access, & much more! Location is also very close to many North island beaches, excursions, and incredibly beautiful landscapes! It’s a must stay location! You won’t regret it!

Beautiful little place with everything you could want. Full kitchen with cooking supplies, pots, pans, plates, the works. Washer, Dryer, parking and awesome communication with Jeff, the owner. We really loved staying here with the exception of the noise. If I were a heavier sleeper, this place would have been perfect. Unfortunately due to the proximity to the street and the open air aspects of the home, the Kauai roosters made it difficult for us to get a good night’s sleep every night. Ear plugs helped but unfortunately for us, we won’t be able to stay here again. But solely for that noise reason. Everything else about this place is charming, great amenities, location, and exceptional hosts.

I can’t say enough good things about this property. They thought of everything. It is literally home away from home. Can’t wait to return. Mahalo Jeff and Joanna!

We loved our 3-night stay at this delightful bungalow. It was clean, well-located in Princeville, safe, quiet (bring earplugs everywhere in Hawaii because of the roosters!) and well cared for. We we so pleased to find various sizes of coolers + blue ice in the freezer so we could easily pack lunches for the beach. We were happy to use the beach chairs, boogie board and snorkel equipment in the deck bin. We also appreciated having the standing fan for the one evening when it was fairly warm. The only thing to note is do not go into the loft! The loft is off-limits to guests, but that is just fine! We would definitely stay here again.

Great location. We enjoyed walking to/from Wylie's Beach daily for our morning snorkel. There was a bit of traffic noise, but eh- not a big deal. Everything we needed was here. Mahalo and Aloha!

We enjoyed our stay at this rental. Beautiful home, good privacy, well equipped kitchen, comfy bed, dual shower heads, snorkel gear, quiet neighborhood, amazing condominium pool—we would stay here again. The house did get hot late in the day and unfortunately the attic fans stopped working but we cooled off at the pool every night. Overall five stars but one less for the attic fans.


Cheyenne S.
September 2022
The bungalow was spacious, cozy, quiet and located in an excellent location. It was by far our favorite place we’ve stayed at out of all of our Hawaii vacations. Our only suggestion is that the housekeeping crew needs to kick it up a notch. They seem to cover the basics but have definitely let the details slide. That said, we’d stay here again without hesitation.

We loved that is was it's own little bungalow at the end of the sidewalk. Guidebook was super helpful and detailed. Space is nice and towels were super soft :) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay amd would highly recommend!

We really enjoyed the lovingly furnished accommodation. There was plenty of room for our family. On the large terrace we could sunbathe, have a barbecue or eat together. The supermarket was close by, as was one of the many beaches in the island's region. We liked it very much.

The bungalow is free standing and very nicely furnished. The kitchen is very modern and spacious. The master bedroom is spacious and very nice. Very nice lania. We had my son and his wife with us for 3 nights and the sofa bed was nice but this rental is more ideal for one couple. Some road/foot traffic noise from the road that is close by.

This stand alone bungalow is a great option for those seeking a bit more privacy in busy Princeville. This home is well appointed and in a convenient location to explore the North Shore of Kauai. The home is beautifully decorated and the lanai is perfect to hang out and enjoy the breeze and refreshments. Highly recommend!

If you could call it an issue, the air circulation doesn’t let the late afternoon and early evening cool air bring the temperature level down to a pleasant temp until the wee hours of the morning. A good window fan would help. There was supposed to be two pedestal fans but there was only one plus the small box fan. Overall, a ten out of ten rating.

Great Bungalow just perfect for exploring the North island. Walking distance to beaches and restaurants. Would definitely return.

Once again, our stay felt like home. The location is perfect if you only want activities on the north shore. You have everything you need in Princeville if not you don’t need it. The house is nicely decorated and clean. I think this is our 3rd or 4th time in this rental. The only bummer was the second day of our 12 day stay was the fence the golf course put up blocking the view. They are working on the golf course. Even though Kauai has gotten busier we will return in a couple of years and hopefully stay at our Kauai home. Thank you Jeff for sharing your home

Well appointed villa in a quiet complex. North Shore Kauai …two lane roads and one lane bridges. A pleasant change from busy schedules. Wonderful, unpopulated beaches, several with great surfing opportunities, and the Nepali Coastal trail 20 minutes away…not to forget the free range Roosters and hens that really enjoy sunrise 🌞

We had a wonderful stay in this delightful Princeville Bungalow. It had everything we needed to make our visit pleasant and memorable, from morning walks, nearby beaches, restaurants, well-equipped kitchen, and more. If/when we return, we would check on the availability of this special home.

Mostly very nice but could use some upgrades. The mattress was very comfortable though, as were the pillows. Great kitchen too. The steps into the dining area are so dangerous. The blue strips of tape aren't an adequate safety measure; not very visible. Some of the DVD's were so damaged they wouldn't play. We're old so were in at night looking for entertainment. We were disappointed at the street traffic, cars and foot, that are right outside the bedroom window. Ear plugs helped. Needed them anyway for the crazy roosters crowing at all hours. :) Overall though really enjoyed this VRBO.

My wife and I had a positive feeling about the property before we arrived but were amazed at how nice it was when we actually got there! (The VRBO pictures do not do it justice.) The bungalow was/is super-beautiful inside and out, comfortable and welcoming (ie the bed/bedroom, the kitchen, the deck, the living room) with extras we didn't expect (like easy access to a beautiful beach and a box full of snorkeling gear). It was a perfect base-camp for us as we explored the beaches, trails, and restaurants on the North end of the island and proved to be big enough to accommodate 4 adults comfortably when my wife's 2 adult children showed up for the last 3 days of our trip. We feel so grateful that we able to stay in this special place, and we'll be back!

This spot was even better than expected! The location is wonderful. You're right near the Princeville Plaza and steps away from the beach. It feels private and was relatively quiet. The kitchen is well stocked and there are plenty of water toys to choose from. The bed was also exceptionally comfortable. I definitely plan to stay here again next time I'm in Kauai!


Patrick T.
January 2022
Close to enough for a short walk to the beach and shopping - traffic noise was a little more than expected and the 4 AM wake up call each day by the resident rooster got us going earlier than expected each day.

We stayed at this bungalow for 7 days, it was really relaxing and soothing. Very comfortable place. We had some family also staying on Kauai over for a BBQ and card games, and it was really comfortable for everyone. The lanai/deck is large and just sitting out there during the day is great. Overall it soothed my body and spirit from a lot of work related stress, came home feeling 100% better.

If you’re looking for a relaxing place to come home to after adventuring around Kauai, Jeff’s property is the place to book! The property was clean and spacious and had plenty of extras to make our stay enjoyable. Jeff was always quick to respond when we had any concerns as well! I would definitely book this property again on my next visit to Kauai! Mahalo!

We loved our stay at this beautiful Kauai home! The location was perfect for relaxing and a quiet stay in princeville! The owners were amazing and so helpful with all questions we had, check in and check out was easy and the condo itself is beyond beautiful! Super comfortable bed, and a fully stocked kitchen, made cooking for our family easy! We can not wait to return, and highly suggest this property

We loved the privacy of the bungalow. It was the perfect size for the two of us and had every amenity we wanted. We cooked breakfast every morning, and relaxed on the lanai before we made dinner in the evenings. We were close to several good beaches though we ended up driving to most of them so we could take our snorkel equipment, cooler and hammock. Would definitely recommend this gem!


Tara L.
June 2021
We stayed at two Vrbo properties during our visit. One on the north side of the island and one on the south. We loved this bungalow so much! We ended up driving back to the area during our “south side half” too because we missed it! Convenient to great beaches and shopping. We will be back. we miss it so much already!

Most tranquil and relaxing stay close to all the attractions in the north.
