14 night stay with our family. Wonderful place on the north shore. Clean comfortable accomodations and a perfect location. Will definitely stay here again.
We had an awesome time. Can't wait to return.
We had an amazing stay, and the location was just perfect. Loved that their was a whole closet of beach equipment!
Property was nice
Angie was fantastic, so responsive, so helpful. Property was really nice, clean, location is amazing. We'd stay here again anytime.
Whispering Palms is a wonderfully quiet condo with ocean views.
The two king size beds are a plus. Very comfy and cozy with a fully stocked kitchen to make any meal. Angie was easy to get in touch with through text. We had a great week and would highly recommend Whispering Palms !
Loved staying here and didn’t want to leave! Would return for sure. With so many choices, it was hard to choose. But I was very happy with the the final selection! We originally had another place picked out in Ali’i Kai 2, but when Angie’s place popped up, I grabbed the chance as she was so much better about communicating!
Ali’i Kai 1 has more private owner occupied units and is closer to the ocean. :) The only thing it lacks is a hot tub. On days it dipped into the 60s, it may have been nice. But the pool was lovely and much less used than its neighbor.
The complex is very quiet and the gardens are gorgeous. Angie’s unit was an oasis within an oasis! The colors are calming and furnishing well appointed. I don’t need the latest stainless steal appliances or granite counters, I just like a well-stocked kitchen. And Angie’s kitchen offered the best kitchenware and tools of any unit I’ve rented. The extra condiments and shampoos were helpful too. I did leave a Kauai guidebook for those interested in a book about the area.
We were treated to whales thumping their tales right across from our unit. The ocean is literally steps away. Views are even better than in the pictures. The trail down to Turtle Cove is very close too but not for the timid in rainy season as the trail is steep and slick. A bungee type rope here and there helped. An adventure!
At times we heard folks walking upstairs but the luxury of walking to the ocean right from the lanai was well worth it!
A lovely location with opportunities to stay put or travel around the northwest shores. No air conditioning and visited in winter so in summer must be quite hot. Winter breeze with fans was perfect. Tennis is at the Makai golf and tennis club. Not a lot of details from management in figuring this out. But tennis club staff were accommodating and helpful. Tennis close enough to walk or bike.
Really enjoyed the area and the ambiance of the unit. Kitchen well stocked and sunrise/sunsets beautiful. Two king beds appreciated BUT please add plush toppers as they are very firm. There was an inadequate amount of bath towels/cloths, only one kitchen towel and no dish cloths or sponges. However, we still enjoyed our stay as it included tons of hangers, lots of beach stuff including beach towels and we met lots of lovely people.
My husband and I stayed here for three weeks and found the condo to be spacious and comfortable and just as shown in the pictures. It has a mountain view at the lanai side and so many birds to see and hear. The kitchen and dining room have a nice view of the ocean between the condos on the other side. The kitchen is well equipped and we made most of our meals there. Needs a dish rack and kettle. Bedrooms both have king size beds and both bathrooms are bright. The shower has good pressure but needs some updating as the grout is black and floor is stained, same for the second bathroom.
We were unlucky to have very noisy neighbours above us. The stomping at midnight and 2 am disturbed our sleep, that part was terrible.
The directions to find the condo need a bit more detail. We arrived at midnight and drove to Princeville in the rain. We used nav to find the complex but then could not figure out how to find the unit. It was dark and there are no lights in the parking lot and none of the unit numbers are visible. Luckily another couple arrived that had stayed before so they explained and guided us to our condo.
So for future renters, when you arrive this condo is in building 1 of 4 at this address. The street address is not posted so you have to trust your nav that you are at the right place. You will have to walk right to the door before you will see the unit number and will need a flashlight if it is at night like it was for us.
We enjoyed our stay, the pool was great.
Thank you Angie for your hospitality and for your quick response to all my questions. Place is exactly as pictured, very spacious and clean and the price was right, specially during the holiday festivities. Truly appreciated the full kitchen, washer and dryer as well as the beach equipment which we used during our stay. Note: It is true about hearing people on second floor but Angie has no control who stays upstairs and some guest are louder than others. The place is surrounded by roosters, chickens, Nene's and seagulls. This is something to keep in mind for those who are light sleepers or who may have never lived in a apartments. If you have never stayed in Princeville, it is super green, rains often and tons of wildlife. Drive to poipu is about 1 hour. We went to Costco the day we arrived and made the drive North.
We had a great time the property was very clean and easy find. Bedding was very soft and comfortable!!!!
The property was great and in a prime Princeville location. We typically stay at The Cliffs at Princeville, but the price here was excellent! The battery died in the keypad deadbolt, so we had to use the lockbox and get the physical key out each time we went in and out, but not too big of a deal. Some things are aging in the unit, but overall it was great.
We had a wonderful experience in our condo that is tastefully decorated. The kitchen was easy to cook meals, we used the full-size washer and dryer and enjoyed the small patio. The neighborhood was so quiet. The only complaint was single-ply TP!
We had a lovely time at this property but it was very warm. Be prepared for the roosters crowing in the nite and no AC
We also had an issue with the safe. The property manager did respond quickly but failed to mention that there was a key in the unit. This could have been resolved quickly but we spent the day waiting for the maintenance man instead of heading out for the day.
We weren’t impressed.
We did love the community pool, watching the sunrise and exploring the area .
My hubby’s review:
1. No AC. I repeat. No AC. Sweat all night.
2. Renters upstairs sound like cattle about to crash through
3. You’ll be awake at 5:00 AM every day
4. Unprofessional manager
Otherwise, clean and fully equipped
This is an amazing property! There was so much space for us! The kitchen was wonderfully stocked, we cooked our own breakfast everyday. I would strongly recommend staying here as it is barely 10 minutes to Hanalei where there is so much to see and do. I'll be looking to stay here the next time I'm on the North Shore!

We had a great time at Whispering Palms! Easy to communicate and quick response. The condo has everything you need to stay with your family. The deco and bathrooms are rather simple but it fulfills the purpose. We would love to come back again! Thank you 🙏
Our family had a great vacation here. I loved running in the mornings with the sunrise and sunset dinners on the patio. Much aloha!
Property was great with all facilities ; air cond would be a plus.
We had an excellent stay and enjoyed our time here very much! The apartment was fully equipped with everything (and more!) It was clean and spacious - perfect for our family including young kids. It is located in a beautiful and peaceful neighborhood.
Take into consideration that there is no AC, but the provided fans were helpful.
The place was clean and had all the amenities that you could want. The view from the porch was up at the mountians w which was a wonderful view for each morning breakfast.
We stopped at a few other buildings to find it but some kind person pointed us in the right direction.
The little shopping g center in Princeville has was. You’d need to stick up the house and “the spot” looks great for food although we weren’t able to make it.
All in all a great peaceful stay!
Great location and value. Nothing fancy, but was good for my family of 6. Only complaint was the upstairs neighbors were very loud every single night during our stay.
Just returned from a 7 night stay at the Whispering Palms. Took the family to Kauai for my son's high school graduation. We were 4 adults and a 7 month old baby, and Whispering Palms was very comfortable for us. Double bathrooms were great, and the master bedroom is isolated enough from the living room so we could hangout and watch movies without waking the baby. No A/C as with much of the island, but we stayed cool/comfortable with the ceiling and floor fans available in each room. Kitchen is well stocked with everything one would need to cook a meal. Pool is a short walk and we were thankful this unit was on the ground floor so we could wheel our stroller in/out to go to the pool with ease. Grounds are lovely and well maintained. Would definitely stay at the Whispering Palms again.
We loved our stay! Amazing location, very quiet and relaxing, the grounds are beautiful, the pool was nice. Very chill atmosphere. Wonderful stargazing and sunsets from the lanai and from the cliff lookout. The only thing I would mention was our upstairs neighbors walking around was very loud until late at night. Otherwise we loved it and would stay again!
Clean, spacious. Very well equipped kitchen (including coffee grinder, coffee maker, pour over, keurig). Big washer and dryer. Back patio a great place for morning coffee and has a hose to rinse feet. Check out the turtle cave!
We spent the second half of our Kauai trip in Princeville in order to be close to kayaking and hiking the Napali Coast. Being close to the Queen’s Bath was a bonus. The accommodations were perfect for the four of us. The full kitchen allowed us to prepare and eat our meals at the rental. It was tastefully decorated and very clean. We would definitely recommend it and would stay again.
We just returned from a week long stay at the condo and enjoyed it so much! We arrived in Princeville earlier than the check in time and, after messaging the owner, were allowed to check in early, which was so wonderful. The owners were helpful and communicative, and the condo had everything we needed to make it the perfect home away from home. We will definitely be making a return trip!
Clean and convenient check in. No problems
Centrally located on the North Shore of Kauai. Everything you need for island adventures; full kitchen of appliances, washer and dryer, beach supplies like towels, beach chairs and boogie boards. Nice quiet area.
Very confortable but far from the south…
This place was great. Hosts were communicative and rooms were perfect
This place was awesome! Super clean and spacious! Our family had a wonderful stay!
This unit was so much more than we expected. From the beautifully decorated rooms to the stocked kitchen with all the essentials (including sharp knives!) and an ocean view from the front door.
All this was made even better with the great communication with the property manager. We are so grateful to have had this sweet spot to land. Woyld love to return!
We stayed here in Jan 2022 and it was awesome.
the apartment was clean and well taken care of. Tons of parking and in a great location for all things North shore.
Quiet; peaceful and communication was great and fast.
The property was very nice and made for a wonderful stay.
Amber and Angie responded quickly with any questions about the rental. Property was very clean and everything was in top working order. Very roomy open floor plan with views of the Pacific Ocean out the front door and the Namolokama Mountain and Hanalei Bay out the back door. We really enjoyed out time there and would rent again.
Lovely quiet location. Appreciated the comfortable linens, several fans, kitchen equipped with all needed pots/pans for cooking, and the coffee maker with k-cups was a bonus. We would definitely stay again!
