Look and listen to the sounds of Hawaii's majestic surf as it rolls in right beneath the windows of this cozy ocean bluff condo. Kai Nani at Sealodge is the perfect spot for a honeymoon or a romantic island getaway.

Kai Nani means 'beautiful ocean' in Hawaiian. True to its name, our Sealodge condominium (Unit #G-2) offers some of the most spectacular ocean views in Princeville. Perched dramatically on cliffs overlooking the waters of the blue Pacific, Sealodge is a small low-rise complex, its wind swept cedar siding in perfect harmony with the ocean environment surrounding it. Kai Nani is a one-bedroom one-bath first floor unit which faces east/northeast and looks directly down the coastline to Anini Beach and the Kilauea Lighthouse. There is an unobstructed ocean view from every room in the condo, and the gentle sound of the surf permeates the air. The covered deck that juts out toward the cliff from the living room is a perfect spot to sit and watch the waves and the often visible marine life. Dolphins can sometimes be seen frolicking in the water, and, in the winter months and early spring, humpback whales join in the display. The unit is conveniently equipped for vacationing comfort; you will find a list of its many features and amenities below.

Kai Nani offers the following amenities: cordless telephone and flat screen color TV. The full size kitchen contains: electric range/oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, disposal, coffee maker, toaster, blender, and a large array of kitchen equipment. We provide numerous extras, such as beach chairs, cooler, binoculars, books and magazines, etc., and High Speed Internet.. The unit is about 50 feet from the coin operated laundry located in F building. There is a very comfortable "Novaform 14" Comfort Grande Plus Memory Foam Mattress Medium" king-sized bed in the bedroom, and a double size futon available for guests who do not wish to share the bed.

Pictures accurately show you what to expect. This was a great and relaxing stay for us.

Excellent property on the North Shore, with easy access to great hiking, amazing beaches, and shopping in Hanalei. Property has an ocean view, and there's a walking path to a secluded beach nearby.

We had rain off and on for our visit, which is typical for this time of year. But even with the rain and clouds, the views from this condo are amazing. It's situated so you see right down the coastline. This was our first time on Kauai and we only had two days to explore. We'd love to go back again and explore more. We didn't find many restaurant options in Princeville itself for a nice dinner out, but there are quite a few in the neighboring communities. Reserve early!

This property is an older one, but that doesn’t change anything for us! The pictures accurately show what to expect, decor-wise, when choosing this as your lodging. What the pictures don’t accurately show is the instant relaxation when walking out onto the lanai to see the ocean as your backyard, and the feeling of having the windows open at night, allowing you to listen to the waves while the ocean breeze keeps you cool. Absolute bliss! Other than that, the rental was well stocked and in great shape for her age! You can tell the owners take good care to make sure visitors have a wonderful stay. We were not able to make it to to Sealodge Beach. We tried, but things seemed to get a little hairy at the very point you lay eyes on the beach. We may have done it wrong, and would have tried again if we had more time! But please don’t place your hopes on spending time there, because it’s not easy to get to if it’s been raining at all lol (tip: take hiking poles and shoes you don’t mind getting muddy!). The location was gorgeous! There’s something about the north shore of Kauai that heals the soul. We were not fully prepared for the road system on Kauai, though! Make sure to plan out your trip so that all the west side things are done in a day, because it takes a while to get there! The Princeville area is adorable, we loved the Princeville shopping center right up the street. All-in-all, this was an amazing stay and we’d definitely return!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week here. The condo was as described and an amazing value. The view can't be beat - we caught beautiful sunrises each morning. The condo was well-equipped with a lot of extras that you don't often find in rentals and were so appreciated!

It would've been perfect if the host had been able to get the pool key to us which was missing. That the host was unavailable and not able to get someone to bring the pool key made me worry that something could go wrong and there would be no help. Fortunately nothing else did go wrong, but I really wanted to swim in the pool.

We loved our week in Kauai, and this was a great place to stay. Great location, smooth process, LOVED waking to the sunrise over the ocean through the bedroom window every day. Thank you for a great stay!

Great location and beautiful view. Condo was as described in the listing. Clean and had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. Power outage caused the TV to go offline but the owner responded immediately and come onsite within 15 minutes to fix the problem. Great service!

This condo was exactly as listed on the Vrbo site. Very clean, comfortable bed, all you need for a great stay. Fantastic views from the balcony and living room windows. We used the washing machine and dryer housed in a separate building and found it to be a good experience not eating all our quarters as suggested by a previous reviewer. We had a great stay and would recommend this special place.

Sunrise is unmatched from this property. It needs better coffee cups. I would recommend a high top table for outdoor deck area. Overall this is a great rental property. I would put night stands on both sides of bed (small ones).

Loved Kauai and this place was amazing! The view from the Lanai was so wonderful. I was content to sit out there for enjoying the views. We saw whales and dolphins from there (the binoculars were very handy). Great value! Can't recommend this place enough!

The view of the sunrise are incredible from this unit. Place is perfect for 2 people. Lots of room and the bed is comfortable. We were able to watch surfers and whales swimming in the ocean from the lanai. Would recommend this place to anyone wanting to unwind and relax and enjoy nature.

The online pictures of the view from Kai Nani do begin to compare with the real thing. The unit itself is compact, with great views from the lanai, living room and bedroom. The bed was very comfortable. There are no nightstands, which was a little inconvenient. The living room sofa and swivel chairs are beginning to show their age. The only television, the living room, is fairly small and set low, near the floor. Most of the time, the view is outside, but after dark, a larger, wall mounted set would be nice. The kitchen was well equipped with utensils. An inexpensive, but needed upgrade are safety grab bars for the tub/.shower. Although there is no laundry in the unit, the complex shared laundry room ($2.00 to wash, $2.00 to dry) is just steps away. None of these suggestions take anything away from this lovely homes spectacular location.

Wonderful condo in Princeville. Great location for exploring the north and east side of the island especially Hanalei and the Napali Coast.

A great little place for a couple on the north shore. More than two adults would probably not be comfortable here, but it was perfectly fine for two. Amenities for enjoying outdoor activities (beach chairs, boogieboards, snorkeling gear) were great. The real selling point is the lanai -- the view of the stars was WONDERFUL and hearing the ocean right off the balcony was the best way to start our Kauai vacation. We ate our breakfast on the lanai every morning, and I enjoyed writing while sitting out there and listening to the waves or gazing at the stars for inspiration!

We absolutely loved staying here and will definitely be coming back. The view is one of a kind and the location is convenient to restaurants and beaches. Bob and Suzi are also responsive and accommodating hosts. 10/10 would recommend!

We enjoyed staying in this cozy condo with a stunning view of the ocean! It was a great "home base" to explore all areas of the north side of Kauai. The condo complex is well maintained and is very quiet and peaceful. The unit itself was very clean. It is small, but comfortable for 2 and kitchen had everything we needed to cook a few meals during our stay. We found the bed very comfy! The sunsets and sunrises from the condo were enjoyable to watch! We appreciated having extras like snorkeling gear and beach towels to use while staying here as well. There are beach chairs and a few other items that we didn't use, but cool that they are there for others to use. There wasn't air conditioning in this unit and our understanding is that most don't have air conditioning. This was clearly stated in the rental description, so we appreciated knowing that going into it. We did appreciate the fans that were provided. They definitely made it more comfortable. We stayed for 7 nights in the unit and most of the time it was comfortable and could get the unit cooled down. The owner was easy to communicate with and sent loads of information about visiting Kauai! We also appreciated the clear instructions for the unit that were printed out and put in a binder in the condo. As renters it was great not having to guess what we needed to do when we checked out or what to do while using the condo. We didn't need to ask any questions because the communication was so thorough to begin with! We love that! Another bonus is that this condo is close by to a weekly farmer's market and close to the "Foodland" grocery store, which was very convenient as well. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone wanting a nice, clean place to stay while visiting Kauai!

Nice place with spectacular views. Great location for exploring the North Shore of Kauai. The unit has everything you need. However the furniture, windows and TV are all very old and dated. Very loud when the people above you are in. You can hear them every time they move around. The unit is listed at a fair price and we would stay here again. Thank you for your hospitality.

Our stay at Bob and Suzi's place was absolutely wonderful! It was the perfect spot for a quiet getaway. The incredible ocean views were not an exaggeration - we enjoyed gorgeous sunrises and relaxing evenings from the lanai each day. The condo was also very quiet and is designed so that it feels private. The condo was also very clean with the kitchen amenities we needed. The location was great for hiking, snorkeling, and enjoying some meals on the north shore. We did not want to leave and would love to come back again. Thank you for sharing your lovely condo with us!

I recommend this property whole heartedly! They even had it equipped for beach play!

The unit was just as advertised and suited me to perfection! The view would be hard to beat anywhere on the island. The place was clean and comfortable. Although there was no AC, there was a nice breeze most all the time. Besides all the usual kitchen and bathroom amenities, there were also beach items like chairs, ice chest, pool toys, and snorkel gear. Although I did not use it all, was nice to see the provision. The pool was simple, but clean. Parking plentiful. The trail down to Sealodge beach was fun and we enjoyed the waterfall too. I had no needs from the hosts, but Suzi was in contact to make sure all was well. Highly recommend this unit! I’ll be back!

Don’t hesitate to book this property! The view is absolutely unreal. The photos don’t do it justice. The condo itself is spotless, and everything is in great condition. Suzi even just replaced the oven and refrigerator! The condo had everything we could need for a comfortable stay. We even had the pleasure of meeting Suzi, and she was lovely. We couldn’t have asked for a better visit to Princeville. We hope to return again one day!

We booked because of the beautiful view, and it is wonderful! Saw whales, the lighthouse at night and the sound of waves was amazing to fall asleep to! Communication with the owner was quick and helpful. We are sad to leave and will definitely be back. Thank you, Suzi, for a great stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Sealodge condo. We loved the mornings on the lanai and were treated to beautiful sunrises every morning. We watched the humpback whales, spinner dolphins and albatrosses from our lanai as well. The condo itself had everything we needed for the week and we loved heading down the short hike to Sealodge beach to snorkel.

Lovely little condo, but the view is a million dollar view! The place was clean and neat, the bed was comfortable, and the area is beautiful. Greeted every morning by a couple of nenes. Surrounded by golf course. Very nice place! Would stay there again.

Very undersold in the VRBO listing, my girlfriend and I were pleasantly surprised when we arrived just how nice the place is. The views are absolutely incredible and is worth the little extra money. Clean, quiet, etc. and has to be one of the best views/condo locations in all of Princeville. Highly recommend.

Great place and location! The views from every room are breath taking! I so enjoyed the sunrises on the deck and watching the chickens roam about. The condo had everything you could possibly need and more of things previous guests had left. The only con of the place is the way sound travels. The upstairs neighbors were up every morning at 4 am so therefore we were as well

My wife and I had a great stay at Suzi’s condo in Princeville. The location is perfect with fantastic ocean views. The Sealodge is great! We had a wonderful stay. The condo is nicely appointed with comfy chairs and everything you need for a great stay. We really appreciated the fully equipped kitchen and the extra linens. Suzi is a great host, super friendly, and was ready to address and questions or issues. This was our first trip to Kauai and it was perfect. It’s nice and close to great beaches in Princeville (Anini Beach is a wonderful beach for swimming and snorkeling) and a quick drive to Hanalei or shopping and dinning in Kapa’a. We’ll definitely be back and would absolutely stay here again! Thanks for the great stay!

The location is great. Very close to Hanalei Bay and not even a half mile from a grocery store and restaurants. Condo is great. Amazing views and the sound of the ocean was magical to fall asleep to. Fantastic breezes that it’s never hot to sleep and we were there in late June/early July. The only thing I would say was negative was the lack of basic kitchen necessities. You book a VRBO so you have the luxury of a kitchen and not being forced to eat out every day. Plenty of pots and pans and such but no Saran Wrap for leftovers or aluminum foil to cook with or even any simple spice beyond salt and pepper. Coming from staying in 2 different VRBO’s in Maui it was just a significant step down in the kitchen. Other than that everything was fantastic.

This cozy condo was exactly what my husband and I were looking for - an affordable home to stay in Kaua’i with a full kitchen and a nice view. The view spectacular & unmatched! Also Sea Lodge beach (10 min walk from the condo) was stunning! My husband and I visited several North Shore beaches during our stay and Sea Lodge was our favorite. This was our favorite vacation and the location was a huge part of that. We would love to stay here again one day!
