The area the condo was located in was beautiful. The condo itself had a weird smell, the carpets and tile were very worn and old, the air condition did not work the screen door was rip and I saw a roach in the bathroom. Nice development, the condo needs updating for sure.

The property is very clean, nice and work great for our stay. We found the location to be ideal for us. Close to the beach, shopping and very quiet. We noticed a geko our last night in the property, scared my spouse but we didnt mind, it was fantastic definitely will come again.

Condo was easy to access and has all the amenities for a couple to enjoy some quality time. Bed was comfortable (Pillows just "ok"), kitchen well-equipped and they had beach chairs/towels/umbrellas. The description accurately describes that the bed is in a loft. In hindsight, that was the only negative. We had an enjoyable time and may choose to stay there again. Owner was very friendly and easy to get in touch with.

We had just over a week here and had a great time. The lanai backs onto a strip of forest which is alive with birds in the morning. The place is a 5 minute walk from a viewpoint, food and drinks which was perfect. The unit itself was clean and tidy and very well equipped, we'd definitely stay here again.

We had the best stay here. The place was so clean and we had absolutely everything we needed. It felt so good to come home to this condo every day and relax on the lanai. Also, the bed was super comfortable which is rare for home stays. We’ll be back! Thank you to the hosts for everything they did to make this stay what it was.

Had an amazing stay here with my wife for a week in paradise. This property is at a terrific location, steps away from an ocean lookout, walking path, and some small secluded beaches. The lush garden and mountain views from the bungalow itself are also a treasure. Wonderfully decorated, clean, and has everything you need to enjoy your stay on the north side of Kauai. There was some construction/repairs going on with the building, but the property manager was super helpful and we didn't have any issues. The key question of any review is "would you stay here again?" Answer: absolutely!

What we were particularly grateful for was the walkability of this place. Just ten minutes away is the 1 Hotel where you can have a nice dinner, drinks, and an unbeatable view of Hanalei Bay. There's also Hideaway Beach, another short walk from the property with wonderful snorkeling! My only complaint about this place is parking. The "permit-only" rule is somewhat complicated. You're only allowed to park in designated spots and there were several times where we would come back at the end of the day, only to find that all the spots were taken by people without permits, leaving us with no parking option. It was a little stressful and confusing at times. Besides that, I highly recommend this place to stay and Martie was a wonderful and communicative host.

We loved the studio, it is very accurately described online. The views from the balcony are awesome, I couldn’t wait to look each morning to see what the mountains looked like. Also a very short walk to amazing lookout over the ocean and Hanalei bay. Very close to many shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend and hope to return, probably the best deal on the north side!! Thanks again.

We had a short trip on the north side before staying on the south side. This condo is a great princeville location. Wonderful trip!

We enjoyed our stay at Hale Moi. Very nice unit. Even though there was construction going on during our stay, it didn’t bother us. Thanks to Jane for keeping us updated on the work going on. We usually stay at Pali Ke Kua and even without that view, we liked this place more. Highly recommend.

I would describe this place as functional and in a good location. Nothing great about it other than the forest view from the balcony and the kitchen was good. Feels like it could use a little updating on the whole. There are pictures of the ocean in the post but you don't have an ocean view here. You need to walk 5 minutes down the road to see. Martie was amazing with communication.

We stayed for 3 nights here and totally loved it. First off the place was so well kept and I’m in fact taking notes on how they have arranged and set up things in the most elegant and efficient manner. The place is right for a couple and has all the amenities you need. The icing on the cake is the awesome host who went above and beyond to get us a car charger for both iPhone and android :) and truly appreciate the flexibility we had a late check out as well. Overall great experience. The only thing to watch out is the bed is in attic at the top and will have less air circulation think creative to get the fans and ac on when you sleep and it works totally fine!

We were in this pleasant condo for a week. Plenty of room for a couple. There are only a couple of things to be aware of. First is that the "bedroom" is the loft, accessed by a 9' ladder. The bed there is comfortable. The third bed is a sofa that can be arranged into a surprisingly good bed. The condo is essentially one spacious room so it's all one contiguous space. The balcony has a nice view and the A/C works great (also has a dehumidifier setting if you want less cooling). The place is very clean and well stocked including a water filter pitcher and ice packs in the refrigerator and plenty of towels and bathroom supplies. We didn't have any issues with noise -- the roosters didn't even start crowing until 8:00. The management is pretty responsive to VRBO and text messages. There is a pizza place right across the street and a nice ocean overlook a short walk away. Hanalei is a short drive away and has lots of nice stores and restaurants (be aware that the bridge to Hanalei will be closed intermittently starting Jan 2, 2024 through February). Do recommend (as long as you can handle that ladder).

7whole days(anniversary) the room was not that bad BUT! The LARGE spider webS above the curtain and behind the bed means SPIDERS! And I have arachnophobia, so that means I have to sleep with the light on for seven days on top of that little lizards on the inside, it does have a lot of amenities washer dryer, stove oh, and on the outside on the patio there a beginning of a hornets nest that really needs to be removed . But what I stay there again if they handle the spider thing in the lizards are definitely boy.

We will be back.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at this condo in Princeville. Beautiful and quiet neighborhood in a golf course community. Location was great. Mountain view from the Lanai was spectacular. Interior of condo was a little dated but it was very comfortable. Kitchen had all that we needed. Bed was comfortable and AC was great but was really only needed for a hour or two in the afternoon once we got home for our day's adventures. Recommend putting this on your list of possibilities for your upcoming trip to the north end of Kauai.

We landed and had to fine this place in the dark - it was difficult as there was no "Hale Moi" sign as indicated. When we thought we found the spot we could only see a 200 apartment number. We realized later the 100 numbers were on the bottom of the condos that weren't visible when pulling in parking spot in pitch black. The place was great. Extremely comfortable bed. Super cute place with great views (when clouds were'nt impeding the mountains). Lovely touches. Very clean and great comms with the property manager. 15 min walk to the beach. 3 min walk to Hideaway pizza was great (when it was open). Felt safe in swanky "subdivision".

This apartment has everything you need. It’s cozy, quiet, clean, has amazing view into the green backyard and is in a great location. We especially enjoyed the balcony and cozy couch during rainy weather. The bed is comfortable and in a loft (reachable via ladder). We’d come back here in the future!

Do not stay at this property!! The owner is unfeeling, unethical and only cares about money. My wife broke her ankle. We requested to change our reservation so she had a chance to recover. We chose a date that he had no reservation. He refused stating it would be bad for his budget. We lost everything we had paid because he wouldn't give us any money back. He even kept the cleaning fee. There are better properties in Princeville. Don't risk what we did. Rent somewhere else. Also, be aware that you have to climb a ladder to get to the bedroom.

We loved our stay in this condo - it was really clean, the location was great and the bed was very comfortable. The condo is in a quiet community which was perfect for myself and my husband. The only negative was parking, one night we came back from dinner and none of the permit spots were open. We had to sit and wait for about 10 minutes until someone left. Was still a 5 star stay!

The place was very nice and very clean. The beds were comfy and it was close to a lot of activities. They communicated well and quickly. They left beach stuff (chairs, towels, goggles,etc) that was a super nice bonus! Would definitely stay again.
Lindsey O.

Condo was exactly as described and more. Many amenities, which was helpful for our short stay. Loved the privacy off the back patio, even the rooster crowing in the morning. Loft bedroom was easy and quaint. Other reviews spoke of noise, but we had no issues. Location is within walking distance of multiple beaches, restaurants, shops, golf, etc. Would definitely stay here again.

This VRBO had everything we needed and was in a GREAT location. It is really close to a beach and a lookout that’s great for sunsets and we ended up loving the mountain views from the patio. The added bonus of having some beach chairs and towels to use ended up really coming in handy! The place is cute and cozy and we would definitely stay here again in the future.

This condo is everything that you need for the perfect stay on the North Shore! It was very clean, well stocked, and the beach gear was useful. The view was amazing of the mountains and waterfalls. The birds were a delight to listen to with their beautiful songs. The hosts were quick to respond and friendly. Will definitely be planning another stay here in the future!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The location is PERFECT. It had everything we needed and the ac worked great. You will never miss a sunset being so close to Sunset Outlook. Daniel was a great host. He was easy to communicate with and very quick to respond to any questions. And there wasn’t a long chore list for check out (which is rare these days!). We also enjoyed all of the beach gear. Would highly recommend this unit and host.

We loved this property! It was walkable to a beautiful tucked away beach, you could see the moutains and waterfall from the lanai, and was just a great location for our adventures! Everything was nice and clean, organized, and the list of recommendations was so helpful! Would definitely stay here again if we get back to the island!! Mahalo!

We really liked this place. It was in a quiet spot with a wonderful view from the balcony of the lush, green mountains. The A/C worked great. You have to climb a ladder to get to the sleeping area and there was no separate door to the area but that was all clearly described in the description and was not a problem for us. The A/C reached that area vey nicely so we were always cool at night, which I have found to be essential when staying in Kauai in August. I highly recommend this place for anyone that does not have a problem climbing the short ladder to the sleeping area.
