This is the best place for us as - hmm well we are aging and want simple, reliable, and a little off the beaten path. If you want all the pools and people book just down the road at the Westin Resort but that is not for us unless we want to walk their grounds and have a meal at the bar or restaurant. The beach is just down the path and shopping the other direction- just a short walk away.Rick really takes care of your needs - thanks again! We will be back

It was a beautiful place to stay with everything you could need for a wonderful experience. Loved the beautiful patio for early morning coffee! Comfy bed and all the well thought out amenities. Thank you for making our trip to Kauai wonderful. A full kitchen, beach chairs, and clear instructions made the stay easy!

Extremely well equipped property in a great location. It felt spacious and comfortable despite only being a studio apartment and having a full kitchen with a washer and dryer was wonderful.

My wife have been to Kauai several times, this was one of our best visits. Most of our visits we've stayed in the Kapaa area which was convenient but very busy and loud. We really enjoyed the Princeville area, less busy and quiet. The condo was very clean and well organized. Next time we visit we'll stay here again!!

I spent more time actually in the place than I expected, I would say the trip was definitely a mixed bag due to unrelated issues (weather, closing of places that had been open 15 years ago etc). So as a result I was actually in the room reading and watching old Star Trek reruns on cable a lot more than I had planned. So, in short the trip was mostly not what I wanted, about 2 good weather days out of 7, but the place made an excellent place to just hole up and wait it out. One recommendation would be to close the windows at night if the temperature isn't too hot, really helps with the local roosters occasionally deciding that the sun rises at 2am, because they don't have watches. With the windows open, they might as well be perched on the headboard. I stayed in January, and like I said weather was not great, so closing the windows wasn't a problem. In warmer months there will be plenty of airflow, lots of window slats and louvers to open for the breeze. The place is well equipped, so much so that I didn't even discover half of it until well into the trip. Beach chairs and umbrella, beach towels, and good infrastructure like laundry, dishwasher, etc etc. Toaster oven was good for bagels in the morning. I didn't cook much, but it's well equipped for it. Also liked the water filter, regularly filled up my water bottle from it just to be on the safe side. There are a lot of Labels everywhere with instructions on how not to go wrong, which was appreciated.

Rick was an awesome host. We completely felt at home. The amount of thought and preparation that he put in to make sure that his guests had everything that they needed was exemplary. Thanks for your hospitality, Rick.



December 2023
Staying at Rick’s place is always pleasant and appreciated. The host is very communicative and kind, giving true aloha. His place is extremely well stocked with every kitchen utensil you could ever ask for and even board games books and a very nice TV! This is our second stay here and it is always a gem to find it available. The Paniolo complex has swimming pools and is safe and very beautiful to stay at. Many mahalos!!

We enjoyed our stay and this is a great place to stay. Even though it is a "ground floor" unit there a few steps up to it.

The big question is would we rent it again. Yes, we would. I rarely give 5 star reviews because it has to be unexpectedly fantastic. But we have had vacation rentals in 8 different states and this one was fine. The big plus was the size. Vacation rentals are trending bigger and bigger. This was a comfortably sized studio just right for me and my wife. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bed wasn't wonkey, the neighborhood was quiet and all the appliances worked. What we want in a rental is a place we "forget" that it's a rental and we got that. So, yes, next time we come to Kauai we would stay here again.

October 2023
It was a lovely stay. We were in a great location - close enough to Hanalei to enjoy the area - but we were able to leave the hustle and bustle and return in the evening to a quiet location. Check-in and check-out was easy. Amenities were nice. Would recommend!

Rick had great communication and the place was exactly as described. With the lack of AC, things do get a bit muggy/mildew smelling.

An amazing, large studio space located on the north side of Kauai. Has everything you need. The kitchen was amazing. The beach gear was perfect. The pool at night was so nice. Highly recommend.



August 2023
My husband and I stayed here for a week for our honeymoon! Rick was super easy to communicate with. He responded quickly and was super kind. We absolutely loved Rick’s property and where it was located in Princeville. There were many amenities, so we didn’t have to worry about buying/renting things, such as snorkeling gear, beach chairs, a cooler, and a beach umbrella. There were also lots of cooking things, so we were able to make our own meals for the week! It definitely saved us some money. The pool was super nice to swim in, and we loved that we were so close to Hanalei Bay and other beaches like Anini beach. All-in-all, I would definitely consider staying here again! Thank you, Rick! Aloha

Princeville is the nicest area of Kauai and this complex is across the street from the main golf course and a block away from the trail that leads down to a great beach. Overall amazing stay. No AC but the place remained pretty cool with the fans. Can't complain. Would stay again.

Excellent communication and willing to help with questions. The condo is perfect for North Shore stay. Located close to markets and places to eat. Away from the larger crowds. The kitchen was stocked well enough to make our own meals. Great place.

This is a nice private condo located in princeville. It turned out to be perfect for our short stay. Although it was not clean upon arrival but owner was nice enough to arrange cleaner soon enough to take care of it. Note it is an hour away from Poipu and Airport.

Adequate apartment but narrow entryway makes it difficult to access since you have to remove your shoes before entering. The bed and the sofa were uncomfortable and the kitchen and floors were dirty. Flies were everywhere in the apartment especially near the kitchen trash can. Host requires removing your shoes prior to entering but walking in your socks stains the bottoms of your socks. Host alleged a lotion stain was found on a towel and charged us $12.95 for "damages". When I protested that we don't use lotion, he responded that "that's what they all say" but he isn't going to "subsidize" his guests. First time in 60+ years of travel in the US and abroad that we have been charged for damages. Find another place to stay.

April 2023
Our stay was absolutely perfect! Great accomodations and great communication with the host. He made sure we were taken care of and responded quite quickly. It's also near some great snorkeling spots and beaches. Amazing food is within 10 minutes as well. Sitting on the lanai each morning with some coffee or tea while the sun rose was super relaxing and a lovely experience as well.

Had a great time in Kauai. This was the perfect little condo with everything we needed, it had everything to make our stay here more comfortable. Right out the back door you can walk down the path to Anini Beach, or a short walk to restaurants and the grocery store, Hanalei Beach is less than a 10 minute drive. I would definitely stay here again.

Great vacation rental for couples. Rick is extremely responsive and maintains his place very well. The location is great with most north shore beaches and places of interest within 20 minute driving distance.

This was a nice place, quite clean, good for two people. Very nice kitchen. Also, this place as stocked with just about everything you would want in a vacation rental. From the kitchen to the beach stuff to the guide book.

We absolutely loved this fully-stocked oasis. We had a wonderful adventure in Kauai and would return to the same condo. Heaven on earth!


Remington A.

A clean, comfortable stay in a beautiful area of Kauai. Kitchen amenities make cooking at home easy. Parking is simple and area is private. Only downside is that the home is very bright at night as outside light pours in all around you. Other than that would very much recommend.

We very much enjoyed our stay in this unit. Everything was “as advertised”. The beach chairs and umbrella came in handy. No significant complaints.

This place had everything you could possibly need for visiting Kauai. There was a cooler and ice packs that we used to store our cold drinks. There were beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and beach towels. The kitchen seemed to have everything one could use or need. We didn’t use it much at all but I did open all the cabinets to have a look see. Check in was a breeze and there was a binder with all the details of the property. I would stay here again!


Alaina W.
November 2022
The location was perfect distance to all the best spots nearby. Having the access the kitchen, fridge and patio was amazing. Rick ensured everything had clear instructions and checkin and checkout was a breeze. I had some packages delivered to the location and Rick graciously went above and beyond to ensure they were safely received before my departure. Thank you Rick for everything! I would recommend this rental to anyone wanting to be close to Hanalei (less than 10min drive) and we even made multi day trips to the Westcoast and the driving was manageable!

We had a great week in Rick’s beautiful condo. It has everything that you could possibly need. We didn’t do any cooking but you can certainly whip up a gourmet meal in the well stocked kitchen. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom is a nice size. The location can’t be beat. Highly recommend.


Beth S.
September 2022
This was a nice rental. We very much appreciated that the owner had the basics there… beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, coffee filters, ice packs, etc. That really helped… some of those things you hate to buy for a one week visit and then waste the rest. We loved that we could walk to the shopping center and some restaurants. We strapped the beach chairs on our backs and walked to Anini/Wylie beach several times. It’s a great option to not worry about parking. Hanalei Bay was a short drive and a beautiful beach. The main negative we felt were the front entry. There is a shared entry with the unit next door. The front doors need to be pulled hard (slammed) to close and lock, and the shared screen door is REALLY loud. During our visit the next door person came and went at 4am/5am many days in a row. It would be great if the doors/slider were not so loud to cause such a ruckus in the wee hours.


Karen Y.

Princeville is our favorite place to stay when we visit Kauai. We throughly enjoyed our stay. The condo had everything we needed. The beach towels, beach umbrella and snorkel gear were a plus. We would stay here again.

We had a comfortable stay here. Terrific place with everything we needed. Great location not far from a village center and a nice little beach. We also enjoyed longer walks from here to Sealodge Beach, Queen’s Bath, the old Club Med trail and Anini Beach. Highly recommended!

Rick, the host, was very responsive and allowed us to check-in much earlier, which was a great help due to arriving early in the day! The location of the property was conveniently located, felt safe, and was easy to get to and from our daily outings. Only once was the parking spot taken up, but it wasn't for long and one neighbor was very helpful with this situation. We enjoyed having a living room area and T.V. to rest and relax. The shower was a nice size with awesome water pressure! Thank you Rick : )


Kearstin G.
July 2022
My husband and I loved our stay! The kitchen was well-stocked and made cooking our own meals (and saving a bunch on food!) very easy. The beach gear was a nice touch. The bed was super comfortable and the fans and cross breeze from the open windows were a good substitute for AC. Princeville is beautiful, but definitely take take the time to go into Hanalei. It’s not far, but we were happy to have a rental car so we could see more of the island. All in all, we were very happy with our stay!


MARJORIE F.

Our stay was wonderful, Rick was a perfect host. Everything that you would need for a perfect stay was provided, even snorkeling gear. We were celebrating my 22 year anniversary of being cancer free. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Mahalo



March 2022
This accommodation has everything for a comfortable, relaxing time in Hawaii. A well equipped kitchen and washer and dryer make longer stays easy. Plus everything you need for the beach is available...beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel equipment, and cooler. Great location next to the trail down to Willey Beach which leads to Anini Beach in one direction and Food Land in the other direction.


Dan C.
March 2022
We had an excellent stay in Princeville. The check in process was smooth and Rick’s directions were clear. The place itself is calm and cozy, with windows to let in the breeze and a nice deck as well. The beach is a short walk away down a hill which is also nice. The unit was stocked with everything from a cooler, snorkeling gear, beach chairs and a full utility kitchen. We’d stay again!

This condo was a delightful property, very quiet and restful location and convenient to sightseeing. It really looks better than the pictures as others have said. Very tastefully renovated and it has everything you need at a rental condo. Rick was very helpful and answers back quickly, we had no issues whatsoever. We were so busy enjoying Kauai we didn't have a chance to see the pool, but I'm sure it was nice. Loved the privacy and backing the golf course and seeing the beautiful sunrises from condo every morning. Princeville is such a wonderful place to stay with so many walking paths and short distance to stunning places, you will love it here!


Bradley K.
February 2022
Overall, this is a very nice little place that is just right for a couple or one person. We like to cook so the well equiped kitchen fit our needs well. The store and beach are both within easy walking distance. There was sometimes a little noise from the road and yard workers, but not enough to really bother us. The east facing kitchen windows were delightful in the mornings!


Mariah S.
January 2022
We have stayed here several times and it is always fantastic. It’s clean, has all the essentials needed for packing lunches, making coffee and heading to the beach. Rick is communicative if anything is needed, but we never need anything because the unit is always well equipped and ready to go:) We had a great time and will be back!

Rick's place was the perfect island apartment. We woke up everyday to birds and trees. Kitchen had everything we needed including tupperware to take snacks on our day trips. Place was extra clean and more spacious than the pics showed. We'd definitely come back to stay!


Sharel S.

This has become our go To" destination - Location is quiet, beautiful and easy to get anywhere that we want. Rick has always been great communicator and this tay was no exception . A tree fell on the 1st day of our stay and damaged the deck - Tree guys were there for repairs and clean up over the next few days - loud process but somewhat entertaining. Rick offered a days refund without us asking and he processed it right away. The kitchen was amazing ans well stocked. Love it here!

Janelle S.

We absolutely loved our stay in Princeville. It was a great place to stay and explore the north shore. Rick had everything you could possibly imagine in the closet for beach exploration - a large umbrella, snorkel gear, beach towels, etc. He was especially accommodating in our travel plans that had changed a bit before we came out here which we really appreciated. Overall, 10/10 and we're so glad we stayed here!


Christina W.
October 2021
The property looked great online and was even better in person. We had everything we could need to enjoy our stay exploring the island. There was a cooler and ice packs in the freezer, so we could pack a lunch for the beach; there were two sets of fins and snorkels, 2 beach chairs, beach towels, even sunscreen and bug spray in the bathroom cabinets! We used the pool, grill and hiked down to the very beautiful and secluded Anini Beach (shorter to walk than drive!) Such a special place, no complaints at all!


Tammy S.

The condo was clean, warm, inviting and located in a beautiful area of Princeville. The condo was well supplied with everything necessary for a relaxing stay. The host Rick was incredible and was always available to answer questions. I have stayed in Kauai several times and this was the best place I ever stayed at. Excellent!

The place was perfect for us and our week long stay. The condo literally had everything that you could need. Everything was spotless upon entering. And the location was excellent! We’ve stayed at a few different places in Kauai over the years and this one is by far the best we’ve ever stayed at! Can’t beat the price either. Thank you for such a lovely stay!

September 2021
I stayed at Rick’s place for a month, and it was a wonderful experience all around. He has anticipated even the smallest details to make guests feel at home. Princeville is centrally located on the North Shore, so it’s easy to access both Hanalei and Kilauea, as well as day trip to the Southern and Western parts of the island. I enjoyed the walking/running path in Princeville and all of the beaches and water sites within walking distance to the apartment. The fully outfitted kitchen and washer and dryer were great given the long-term nature of my stay. The apartment itself has a lot of floor space to do yoga or Pilates (which is helpful in pandemic times). I also appreciated all of the different seating configurations (the small dining table for two, a distinct living room area, a desk, and of course the lanai). I loved opening the glass doors morning and night to listen to the rain and the birds. It’s a very peaceful spot. Last but not least, I tend to get warm at night, but I was very comfortable at Rick’s place with the fans he provided. Mahalo for your hospitality, Rick! I hope to return.


Kj K.

We walked to the sunrise and grocery store and drove 4 minutes to watch the sunset while soaking in the Queen’s Bath. Shower was one of the best showers I have ever had. Bed could have been a little firmer but was okay enough. Kitchen fully stocked with great knives and cooking utensils (for a rental.). Again, very very happy to have found this place. Oh and Rick was wonderful and incredibly responsive!


Stephanie W.

Private and well equipped place at a very reasonable price that is close to best beaches in Kauai. Thanks again for letting us stay there, Rick! Hla

We loved this cute little place! It’s quiet and clean. Has everything we needed in the kitchen, well stocked with extras (bug spray, shampoo, lotion, kitchen spices, laundry soap, etc) We LOVED morning coffee on the very quiet lani with the roosters and chickens! The location is perfect if you love exploring the North Shore as it seems centrally located. We would stay here again and next time we are on Kauai we plan to book if available. If I had to think of anything that wasn’t easy and perfect about this place for us it would be.......we couldn’t get the garbage disposal to work. If that’s my biggest issue after 10 days here I would say life is pretty damn wonderful!! Thank you Rick for a great place at an amazing price!!

Great location and thoughtful condo amenities. Would use again. Thank you for a wonderful honeymoon stay.
