Pro- great location near Princeville village and Park. Nice proximity to Anini Beach trail. Very efficient but missed having a full kitchen. Made 3/4 kitchen work but unable to boil veg or rice. I would say this was a fair value and would return
I don’t need anything fancy and this was the perfect place to sleep and felt really safe and such a plus to have parking! Would rent again.
My girlfriend and I were very pleased with the place! I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a place in Princeville
The layout of the studio was well planned, and I enjoyed the deck and the very functional kitchenette area.. I also enjoyed being on the upper end of Princeville, where it was an easy walk to the Princeville center with the shops and restaurants.
Everything was fine. Clean and cozy. Well worth the lrice
The place was awesome I wish they would have supplied umbrellas and had a coffee on the counter.
Great location, value, clean and spacious.
Cute, quaint spot in Princeville. Love the quiet location and the walking path behind to the beach. It’s a real butt kicker hill, but so worth it!
The unit was clean, had everything my bestie and I needed from beach chairs, to a fridge, microwave, cooler.
Wonderful time. Thank you!
This place was perfect for my stay in Princeville. Great location, clean and had most of the amenities that I needed. Price was a little over what I expected with fees but the comfortable interior made up for it.
This was a great place to stay on our trip to Kauai. Beautiful area to stay in. The location was great for our travel plans, as we spent most of the time exploring the North shore. It is very close to the Princeville shopping center and a short drive to Hanalei. It also wasn’t too far from the South shore, where we made a couple day trips. The beach chairs and umbrella were a really nice touch and came in handy for our beach days. I didn’t realize that this place did not have air conditioning until we arrived, but we didn’t really need it. There were several fans that were helpful and the windows could be cracked open for air flow, along with a screen door to the back porch. Check-in and check-out was easy as well. We hope to visit Kauai again someday and would definitely consider staying here again.
Im overall very happy with this property. Things were clean and there are a good variety of kitchen appliances to be able to make food at the unit, which i loved since i was trying to stay within a budget. The location is great too, i really liked being within walking distance of a park, foodland, and anini beach. You can hear footstepts from the upstairs unit, but it wasnt bothersome. I would definitely recomment this property to anyone looking to save some money and stay in a studio style toom.
This was a clean small place to stay. It was perfect for my wife and I. Good location for access to things as wanted to do, and Princeville shopping center right up the road. The only downside was no stove, only microwave and toaster oven, and directly behind the unit, where the deck is, is a major construction site that we noisy during the day. But fortunately we were out all day most days, and construction activity ceased around 5:00pm. Overall a great economical place to stay and I recommend it.
I absolutely loved staying here.
Convenient to Princeville, Hanalei, and Anini Beach. Enjoyed the unit.
Place was nice and clean. Quiet for the most part (upstairs neighbors were a bit heavy footed). Everything was provided that was needed for a comfortable stay - only thing I would suggest would be a single hot plate for cooking. I would recommend for a single person or a couple.
Very quiet and convenient location for hiking and snorkeling. Rick is very responsive, and also prepared us plenty of snorkeling and beach gears to enhance our experience.
Property was very clean with everything you would want for a beach vacation. Loved that Princeville Center was a 5 minute walk/2 minute car ride. It has great restaurants, shops and a well stocked grocery store with a good deli and baked goods. Would highly recommend staying here!
The property was perfect for what we needed and we loved the location! You can also tell the host cares about his guests!!
Very nice, quiet neighborhood
Place was small, but it has everything you need. Perfect for saving some money and enjoying the outdoors.
Rick has an amazing property at an amazing location.
Had a really great stay at this property. Everything from check in, to amenities, to the kitchenette was greatly appreciated. Kauai is fairly expensive and it was great to make meals at home for myself. Also really appreciated the beach towels and chairs!
Would highly recommend this property for solo travellers or couples. Thanks again Rick, can’t wait to visit again.
The property was close to the beach and had all the necessary beach accessories (chairs, umbrella, snorkelling kit and beach towels). The property itself was clean and perfect size for 2 people. Would recommend.
The owner was also very friendly.
A good addition to the kitchen would be a small induction plaque but otherwise everything was there.
Would definitely stay here again!
Rick's place was exactly as advertised and perfect for a lone traveler or couple looking for some peace, rest, and location close to Hanalei and amenities in Princeville. The property is beautiful landscaped with tropical Hawaii flora, easy parking, great pool, and friendly locals that reside in the area (like Joy and Shelby). Super close to walking path, small beaches, and food options. Condo was stocked with all the kitchen amenities to cook and prepare meals and pack lunches for the beach. In addition, beach necessities such as cooler and chairs were an awesome addition and I used them everyday. Bed was amazingly conformable after a long day surfing and strolling the beach. All in all, super experience and would be delighted to stay in Rick's place again.
Perfect place to stay while visiting friends on Anini Beach.
Very comfortable studio. Nice size refrigerator and plenty of utensils. Nice comfortable little lanai. Nice pool area with a Weber Spirit LP gas grill. Rick was very accommodating and respond almost immediately to our messages. All the beach stuff we needed. Chairs, umbrella, beach towels and a little cooler. Lots of walking paths. Very quiet.
Ideal place for our visit to Kauai!
Love availability of chairs, pool, umbrella, snorkel gear and ice chest.
Nice property and well maintained. Friendly neighbors. Very convenient location for groceries, restaurants, and site seeing within reasonable walking/ short driving distance.
Perfect location to explore the north shore. Check-in process very smooth and parking very close to the apartment. Apartment has plenty of space for a couple and it’s very well maintained. We had a small problem the first night, due to a blackout which impacted the whole town, but the electric company fixed it in few hours. Overall a wonderful place the enjoy the beauty of Kauai island. Recommended!
Lovely property. Well stocked and very comfortable. We very much appreciated the snorkel gear. The back of the property opened up to a trail that led right to the beach.
It's a great budget option for the north shore, located 10 mins to Hanalei and with close access to some great beaches right in the neighborhood. Aging golf condos, the course was fenced off so the lanai view is actually more private. Appreciated snorkel gear provided. You'll want to make use of all the fans (many are provided) to deal with humidity and airflow. Bed is comfy. Host provides lots of bathroom items including first aid and a great hairdryer. Many coffee makers but no coffee is provided. This was a good base, easy to get to, and it was always easy to park.
It was easy to get the keys in a little box next to the door. I entered the code that was emailed to me days before. No issues at all. Rick had a binder inside with detailed instructions for use of things and also nice suggestions of things to do in the area. This is the perfect place for couples. It was just enough room without being cramped. Nice and clean. This was actually my first VRBO and it was an excellent standard. Love the area. It's nice and close to the Na Pali Coast for hiking, Tunnels for snorkeling, and Hanalei for eating and shopping. Loved it.
This was the perfect place for my husband and I! The location is amazing, your back yard has a tree lined path with so many pretty flowers and plants, and this place had everything! Dishes, ice packs, a cooler, beach chairs and umbrellas. They also provided Many fans to help keep you cool on those warm Summer nights. We felt safe and comfortable! There was a blow dryer and shampoo and conditioner in the shower! It was a fully stocked house! Thanks for providing such a fun place!! We’ll be back!
Everything was great!
Good place for a couple only. Could use more towels if you have a long stay. Provides beach chairs and umbrella. No a/c, but it is Hawaii, multiple fans. Overall it is a good place to sleep and that is usually all you need.
My Gal and I had an amazing time in Kauai and the wonderful accomodations only made life easier and more comfortable. Really top notch host, the place is well stocked with all the necessities. Would highly recommend
Nice unit. Perfect for two. Close to many of Princeville's attractions. The unit is well thought out to make vacations easy for guests. Rick, the owner, was very responsive. We really appreciate how quickly he answered queries and how helpful he was. We hope to return again soon. Mahalo!
Our stay in the condo was fabulous! The owner is Aloha in action—he provided everything we needed, and responded immediately to our emails. The condo was exceptionally clean. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the towels were very nice. The pool was just the right temperature and the gas BBQ came in handy. The path to beautiful, quiet Anini beach was just steps away from the back lanai. The shops and restaurants were also within walking distance. We definitely recommend choosing this condo!
We had a wonderful time staying at Rick's place. I actually think the condo looks nicer and seems larger in person than what the pictures show! Rick, the owner, is very kind and helpful and provided a ton of amenities that we didn't anticipate including beach towels and chairs, snorkeling gear, and spices and coffee in the kitchenette. Rick also left a very thorough and informative guide book for us that was helpful in planning activities. The place was very clean and the kitchenette was perfect for making simple meals. I would certainly stay here again if we were to return to Kauai.
Beautiful studio with patio for a couple or a solo traveler. Princeville is very close to beautiful Hanalei Bay. 5 min from all Restaraunt’s and shops, in a quite and very neat area right in the heart of Princeville. Rare find price and value is 10/10, definitely recommend
My partner and I stayed for 4 nights to be close to Hanalei Bay for my cousins wedding and couldn’t have had a better stay! The small but well equipped kitchen provided everything we needed to put together snacks and easy meals before our daily adventures. The home came equipped with everything we needed (and forgot to bring/couldn’t pack) to get ready for the wedding (an iron and a hair dryer!) I even read the copy of The Descendants which was amazing since some of it takes place in Hanalei Bay! Thank you so much for opening up your little slice of heaven with us. Mahalo and aloha!
Rick’s property was perfect for us during our one week stay in Kauai. The suite was clean and well equipped. The location was easy to find and within a short drive to all amenities on the north side of the island. Rick was prompt to respond to any questions and we appreciated him checking in on us during our stay. I would stay here again without a doubt.
Rick's condo (B-side) is exactly as advertised on VRBO. Its size is fine for two people, located in a very nice complex near a popular beach. Rick provides a lot of information via a notebook that outlines how everything works in the unit and includes places of interest nearby. I called Rick a couple times for clarification on minor things; he was very cordial and directly answered my queries.
I would recommend his condo to anyone looking for a clean, nice, safe studio-type property in the Princeville area!
We had a smooth and peaceful stay at this property, and had everything we needed. The listing is accurate. It looks even better in person than in the photos. The bathroom is spacious and the neighborhood is quiet. Beaches and hikes nearby! A great deal for the price.
Place is fantastic, exactly as listed. Condo is fully stocked, has everything we needed. Host was very responsive, couldn’t ask for better.
The unit doesn’t have air (as listed) and it’s not needed, wanted to notate if anyone was on the fence.
Great location! We had friends staying at the Westin, it’s an easy walk to the Westin or to Princeville shopping center. Save your money & stay here!
This property was located in a quiet area of Princeville. Clean, well appointed and just as the photos depicted. Rick was an excellent host and was easy to communicate with. A great place for two adults. Mahalo Rick!
Great location and the unit was perfect. Love the North Shore! Thanks Rick!
My husband and I stayed a week and loved it! Highly recommend!
Twenty some miles from Lauhi airport. Two events I signed up for required I drive a good 50 miles round trip twice. Beautiful drive and not a complaint per se. But it did add a distraction to the stay which I there use went well.
Everything was seamless. Rick was easy to communicate with. Super Cozy condo, was very clean and had everything we needed. Spent time on the deck each day. Exactly what we were looking for. 😎
This condo was perfect for me and my sister. We loved the nice size shower, included toiletries, and location. The beach nearby was great for snorkeling. The nearby town of Hanalei was our favorite place on the island. Thanks for a great accommodation.
The room had everything I needed. Everything was very clean and check in was very simple. The place was easy to find if you follow the instructions messaged by the host. It was in a great location very close to Hanalei and not too far from the Kalalau Trail and Tunnels beach. I didn't need any of the kitchen items, but everything seemed very well stocked. I enjoyed my stay!
The location of this unit is perfect! You can quickly stop by between beach visits or runs to the store. You just can’t beat it! It’s a small place, but perfect for a couple looking to explore the island, a great home base
Loved this rental, the location and all the extras the owner provided. It was one of the best equipped VRBO’s we’ve ever stayed at. The Unit was clean and had room in which to spread out which was nice. The patio view was amazing. As long as you’re not looking for modern or luxurious, this place is perfect at a very reasonable price. We would come back in a heartbeat.
This was the perfect place for our week in Kauai. We loved it.
Easy walk to shops and grocery store, and right next to trail along the golf course. Fellow runners will notice that the trail is a gradual downhill in all directions, so if you run out and back….
We appreciated all the fans and the kitchenette setup with a real sink and fridge. More than one towel set per person for five days would have been nice, though.
The home was perfect for us(2). The kitchen had everything we needed. The neighborhood was very quiet. Directions to the home were clear and simple to follow. We hope to return soon.
We were very pleased with our stay. The unit was clean and efficient, and a great location, but remember there is no cooking stove or washer and dryer, and the grill at the pool needs an upgrade! The owner sent us detailed instructions for our arrival and the unit is stocked with beach chairs, snorkel gear, and kitchen supplies. Thank you for a wonderful visit to your beautiful Island❤️
Very easy experience. Host was very responsive. Great location!
Quiet neighborhood, close to the Princeville center. This house doesn't have a full kitchen but has seriously everything you can think of needing. From beach chairs and first aid kits to wine glasses and ice packs. The owner is pleasant to deal with. Check in was perfection, we arrived late and were able to get keys from a lockbox. Would definitely stay at this condo again.
Rick was an excellent communicator. The location was IDEAL. The hike to Anini was the perfect amount of challenging. Everything was as described and we had a friggn' blast. Thanks, Rick!
Really quiet, very few chickens here compared to anywhere else on the island.
Cute floorplan but not a lot of natural light.
Close to shopping centers, chill beaches, grocery, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
No stove but nice toaster oven.
No AC but there are several fans throughout that accommodate the heat issue nicely.
Extras like after sun lotion, cooler bag, snorkel gear, pool access, two assigned parking spaces.
Beautiful area, safe and walkable.
Host was easy to communicate with and was quick to address any concerns or issues we had.
Easy lock box for keys so we didn’t have to worry about loosing them.
Would stay again based mainly on the location.
We had a great stay at this property! Exactly as pictured and described. There are a lot of fans provided so we were always comfortable despite no AC. All the necessities that you would need and more! Easy and straightforward check in and Rick was very quick to respond if we had a question. Would book here again!
Fantastic place, all the items you need for a longer term stay, hot plate, water boiler, microwave, small oven fridge, we found he rubber ware to be the most useful tool in the place.
Short drive to anini beach, short drive to haneli bay,l. Pool was great, neighborhood was clean and friendly very safe for all ages.
Would recommend this place for anyone traveling to Kauai looking to get everything they need in one place for aruably the best price on the island.
Thank you for the stay!
This is an excellent unit for a single or couple. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back again next time we're in Kauai.
Rick’s property is a comfortable residence with everything you will need for a fun stay in Kauai. The back patio is relaxing with lush greenery to enjoy while having breakfast before heading out for the day. The kitchen is stocked with essential cookware. We really appreciated the snorkel gear and drying rack for our clothes. Check in and directions from the airport were easy to follow so we had a stress free time getting in after dark. We really liked being able to walk to the nearby beaches that require just a short hike in. There are restaurants, shops, and a grocery store within walking distance. There were two outdoor markets held during our stay that we could walk to as well.
Rick’s property was perfect and had all the amenities. He was very responsive and provided great recommendations for local restaurants. Can’t wait to go back!
We had a great stay! This is an awesome location. It was beautiful, quiet, and peaceful. The check-in/check-out process was super smooth and Rick is a very organized host. I'd definitely stay here again.
Thanks for a great stay! We really enjoyed ourselves at some of the local beaches -- It felt so exclusive. Many of the nearby beaches have short hikes to them and were empty with no other visitors which made for an amazing experience. My favorites were Kauapea Beach and Sealodge Beach (within walking distance -- make sure to take the correct path). Check in was a breeze and the area was quiet and secure. We particularly enjoyed Henrietta, a name we gave to the chicken who frequents the back porch. She was there every morning to say hello - very friendly and likes grapes!
I totally recommend staying here. We were concerned about not having AC but it was no issue with the various fans turned on and windows open. We like cold temperatures to sleep and were completely comfortable all night.
Sometimes you want luxury, but sometimes you just want basic. This place was exactly what I was looking for. What I really appreciated was the helpful FYI binder. In addition to the binder, the place is very thoughtfully supplied in terms of kitchen utensils and such.. I had stayed in this condo complex before and did not know that there is a Starbucks in the Westin down the block. Or that you could walk to Anini Beach, I always drove there in the past. The rental car shortage is serious business, and last time I visited I waited in a four hour line to pick it up. So I skipped renting a car and thought I could walk places. It worked fine, you can walk to the grocery store and restaurants, and the beach and go in the pool and sit on the lanai. If you're looking for a comfy basic option that won't break the bank this is perfect. If I had any criticism it would be that in other condos in this complex I stayed in you could use the washer/dryer. The would have been helpful because beach towels get gross and you use up towels for the pool, so being able to wash them would have been better. But overall, I loved everything else
The place was nice and clean and as advertised. Checking in and parking was a breeze, and the location was great. Overall a great place to crash after long and fun days of adventures. Now on to the not so major but negative points. The shower took a little bit of time to tinkle with to turn on and there are no curtains, so if light bothers you early in the morning bring an eye mask. Apart from those two, the amenities are great! Thanks.
This property is perfect for a couple looking to adventure around the Island. There was snorkeling gear, beach chairs, drink cooler, and umbrella. The short hike down to Wileys and Anini Beach was nice. Great location for getting around the north shore.
and the value and location of that unit is incredible! As soon as I arrived I asked if I could stay an extra few days, but it was booked solid for at least the following month and I can totally understand why! In fact, he said the last few guests had asked the same thing. Really enjoyed my stay and what a lovely host Rick was.
Loved our stay sooooooo much!
Will be back!!!
Excellent location, I was concerned about the step down into the kitchen, however not an issue ( I can’t see at night without my glasses) slept well, and loved my new friends ( the chickens and rooster) the birds were my wake up call each morning. 😉 I found out you can make spaghetti in a microwave!!!😁cover with water and double the time for boiling.
This was a great condo for 1 or 2 people! We loved how close to some shops it was and the easy check in process. The apartment came with chairs, snorkel gear, an umbrella, some coolers and more. Great place to stay and easy to get around island with a car!
Rick is happy to help or recommend places around the island. Prompt communication! The place is perfect for a couple! Rick has all the amenities you’d need! We went to Costco and Safeway for food, so we ate breakfast at the condo and packed lunches everyday before we left. Then picked up food or went out at night. Rick has beach gear to borrow which was fantastic to have! If we ever come back to the island, we’d stay here again! So affordable! Thanks Rick!
Loved the location of this place, very convenient to get to restaurants and beaches. Perfectly spacious and comfortable for 2 people. No AC but it came with so many fans that it wasn't a problem for me at all, slept like a baby. Also loved that the place had beach chairs and coolers which were quite handy! Rick was super sweet and communicative as well.
Located just in Princeville, Rick's spot is conveniently located near some awesome North Shore gems - Queens Bath, Hideaway Beach, Anini Beach - as well as the Princeville Center. Rick was a very responsive host! The little kitchenette and back patio area were nice to have. While I didn't have access to a car for most of my time in Kauai, public transportation via the Kauai Bus was quite reliable (although will take about twice as long). Also, Hanalei and Kilauea are cute neighboring towns that are worth visiting! I managed to check out Haena State Park and the Kalaulau trail as well during my stay. Would love to be back!
My husband and I went to Kauai to celebrate our second anniversary and him completing a big exam
for medical school. We stayed here and absolutely loved it! We were close to a lot of different things in Princeville. The home was clean and the host was excellent! Great at communicating overall - about check in/check out and any other questions I had. Absolutely recommend!
Simple, at-home, comfortable and affordable. Everything you need for a vacation especially if you are spending most of your time exploring the island. We loved our stay here.
