Recent Kamahana Reviews

This was our 2nd time to Kauai and it didn’t disappoint. The condo was clean with large bedrooms and primary bath. There is a 2nd full bathroom but the primary bathroom was so huge, our family all set up there for the stay. We loved being on the 2nd story as we had a lovely balcony to sit on each morning with coffee and evenings with a book. Beautiful view and some feathery friends down below to watch. The location was super. If you are someone who loves morning/evening walks, this is a great condo/location. You could wander the path which borders the golf course, walk to the playground, or head down towards one of the resorts for a bite and stunning views. We bought groceries at Costco but Foodland was great for essentials or cravings. A quick drive from Hanalei which has always been one of our favourite places to spend a day. Kitchen was well stocked with all the amenities needed. Bathrooms had sufficient towels but wish there was more TP for a two-bedroom condo and a 2wk stay. Homeowners were excellent at communication. The only thing the condo didn’t have that I wish it did, was a little table on the balcony to set down a coffee mug. Would be a great addition! We struggled a bit with check-in but that was solely our fault as we got in on a late flight so had difficulty finding our way around the condo complex at 1am. A map would be helpful for future guests in the same pitch-dark situation. When we visit Kauai again, we will definitely check if this condo is available.

This works well for folks who spend the days exploring the island. Just be aware that the walls are paper thin and the downstairs neighbors complain about footsteps.

This property is great! You can fall asleep with waves crashing and plenty of windows for a cool breeze. The bathroom was great with updated shower and kitchen area had everything I needed. Quiet community and very cute place!

We enjoyed our 15 day stay at Doug and Cheryll's condo. The condo was clean, well stocked with many items, is very quiet and right on the golf course, pure paradise. Parking lot was never full so there was alway spaces available. Doug and Cheryll were very prompt in responding to any questions we had. This is a beautiful location with friendly people.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This 2 bedroom 2 bath condo was comfortable and no ant issues as reported before. Great view if ocean and mountains. Beds and furniture was comfy. Lanai was our favorite spot. Great place to walk the golf course or down the road to Princeville center. Access code was easy no problem. Appreciated the cooler, beach chairs, beach towels, body board for the beach. Great location. Saturday market in Princeville was fun. Saw many whales from lanai. Water in showers need to be hotter. Kitchen well equipped.needed better cleaning of stove. Second portable fan would be nice had one. Most of time nice breeze through the condo. Would stay again and recommend. 14 steps up into condo main floor with luggage groceries for those with mobility issues.

The flow was very nice. The decor was subtle and flowed with the unit and outdoor surroundings The layout from the kitchen to the dinning area family area and to the bedrooms had very good fen schwey energy accented by the paint colors and decorum. The only few things that would need to be addressed are the loose kitchen sink and plumbing and the disconnection left cabinet door hinge below the kitchen sink. The host fees seem about 10% to 15% Higher than other similar rentals in this part of princeville. We would definitely stay again and recommend to our friends. Mahalo

A nice place. A little hard to find. The kitchen could be stocked with a few more pots and dishes. Rest was excellent. The Kuaui Rental group is very professional. Thanks.

One bedroom property on a golf course. Short walk to a bluff with a beautiful view. No air conditioning in the unit which we were initially concerned about, but the space had good air flow that kept the temperature in a good range. Happy with the stay and we would stay there again.

We had the best time staying at this property on the north shore of Kauai! The location was awesome! We were right on the 15th hole of the Makai golf course and would walk on the cart path each morning for amazing sunrise views over the ocean! We could also walk to the Princeville market for groceries, breakfast, dinner, etc. The condo itself was perfect for the two of us. The newly remodeled shower was luxurious and the crosswinds we could get through the condo were heavenly! No AC was needed nor missed. The beach gear also came in clutch for our beach days. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends or family visiting this area!

Very nice condo. Clean and spacious for our family of three visiting Kauai. Very well located in a relaxing and quiet neighbourhood. Close to all that the North shore has to offer. Loved Tunnels Beach, Hanalei and Ke’e. Driving to other parts of island was easy. Condo has everything you need. Would highly recommend.

It ended up raining for most of the week while we were here, so we didn’t take advantage of the pool or golf course. I think during the warmer months, it might be too warm for us in the living area. The rooms have AC though, which was great! Most places in HI don’t have AC throughout, so it’s normal. This location was quiet and peaceful and safe. We loved hearing the wind through the trees scattered throughout the property. The place was clean. Ants are a real thing in Hi, so plan on keeping your food in the fridge or micro. There were plenty of dishes here, and the washing machine was a lifesaver. The host was very communicative and nice. Would recommend staying here again! You are about a 30 minute drive into Kapa’a, but only 10 minutes from Hanalei if you want something more village-feel. At the entrance of this property is a grocery mart and gas station and a restaurant, so you can get what you need easily.

We really enjoyed staying here. It was an adjustment at first not having air conditioning, but the trade winds provided great breezes when the windows were opened. The fans were a big help. Beautiful location!

We enjoyed our stay in Kamahana 23 very much. Clean, spacious, well-stocked with everything we needed. The Scrabble game came in handy when the rain came down. We loved to setting on the golf course with a view of the ocean and lighthouse.

My wife and I came here on our 10-year anniversary and it did not disappoint! The neighborhood was generally very quiet throughout the day and night, and filled with the chickens that roam the island. We enjoyed just sitting on the balcony and soaking in the beautiful views of the golf course and ocean. The house is perfectly furnished for a relaxing time, and the beach accessories made available by Pamela were incredibly helpful and appreciated! When the windows and glass doors were open, the breeze throughout the building felt great and cooled down very quickly. The general location of the home is perfect for going anywhere on the island and we were able to see much of what the island has to offer. Overall, it was a great stay and we would highly recommend it to any low maintenance couples out there!

The property is in a nice quiet neighborhood, and was very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, and we didn’t need to purchase or rent anything to enjoy all of the beaches. Quick 10-15 minute scenic drive to Hanalei.

This place is good, and Lori was awesome. Very helpful, mostly quick to respond and proactively cooperative. The view is awesome too, with Pacific ocean looking at you from about a kilometer away or so and with golf course in your front when you sit on a comfy sofa is a pleasure. As regards Lori, I must say she was very nice. We were not able to watch on the smart TV they had, so next day, she got a new TV installed. That shows how good she was. We would certainly recommend and we would also come back here, if and when we decide to return. Thanks Lori for all the good work you to to help your customers. .

The location and views are beautiful. There is an incredible secluded beach a short hike away. The condo seemed clean at first but has a roach and ant problem. There were multiple huge roaches and we started noticing dead bugs everywhere. There were also ants all over the place. I reported it to the owner and they said to spray them. I didn’t come on this expensive trip to hunt and kill roaches.

If you are looking for island vibe accommodations for your trip to Kauai, this is it! We stayed 19 nights. The apartment was nice, clean, it has a very well stocked kitchen for cooking any type of meal, cooler bags for grocery shopping, beach chairs, umbrella and even a cooler for the beach. It also had the little things like, garbage bags, laundry detergent, hand soap, and tupperware containers. (These are the things that at any other VRBO, we have had to purchase after a couple days - use not even 1/4 of it and have to leave it behind!) Having the washer/dryer was a huge plus - allows for lighter packing. No A/C however, the hosts have 2 free standing fans. Ceiling fan in the Kitchen/living and bedroom areas, with the trade winds, it was very comfortable. The hosts Cheryll and Doug were amazing, answered any question we had about the area. We definitely would not hesitate to rebook if we were to return to Kauai.

Really lovely property! Very updated, super clean and had a cozy, private vibe that we really wanted for our vacation rental. Location was superb too. Ocean was within earshot and the trade winds at night and early AM were very cooling. The place had everything we needed, so super happy and would stay again!

The location of this condo was great. This unit had almost everything we needed. A little funky and could use a little updating, but exactly as described in the listing.

The location of this condo was great, especially if you spend most of your time on the north shore. There was plenty of room in the condo, very spacious master bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen was fully stocked with coffee maker, rice cooker, plenty of pans and everything we needed. Great communication with the owners. We will be staying here again on our next visit🌈🌴
October 2023

This place was a great home base for my wife and I as we explored the north shore of the island. The condo is cozy, but felt plenty big for a couple. The property is well-kept and pretty, but there's not much too it or the pool; fortunately, Princeville and the surrounding area provide plenty of reasons to go out and explore. (Pro-tip: go to Anini Beach, but go past the beach park, past the "road closed ahead" signs, until the road ends. You won't regret it.) As others have noted, the kitchenette is smaller than you might like, and it can a bit harder to prep food than you might think, but if you know that going into it, you can prepare for it. I would also note that this condo does get fairly toasty during the daytime, even with fans going. We were usually out during the day, so this didn't bother us much, but if you plan on staying inside a lot, take that into consideration. All-in-all, a great place to stay!

We stayed three nights. Very comfortable, quiet and peaceful. We wish we could have stayed longer. No access to the beach from the condo but plenty of beaches nearby. We would definitely stay again. One of the best VRBO we have been to.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This unit is in a great location and very quite. It is a little outdated and could use a refresh such as removing the popcorn ceiling and new kitchen cabinets.The master bedroom in this unit is very hot as there is not much airflow with the bushes right outside the patio.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: It’s a bit of a drive from the airport but worth it. The view is beautiful, grocery store and some restaurants are close and easy to get to. The only thing I would say is that you need more fans. Having nothing but sliding doors means you can’t leave them open at night so it can get kind of stuffy at night.

Beatiful condo on the Makai Golf Course. Great location for day trips around Princeville area. A day at Hanalei Bay is a must. Be sure to go to Kilauea Market + Cafe for best Poke Bowl lunch. Neighbors were very friendly and gave us ideas for daytime adventures.

Easy check in. Central location where we could explore the entire island. Kitchen smaller than I typically like and a barbecue add on would make it a 10+.

Mold in downstairs bathroom, broken closet doors, even with instructions we were unable to turn on the TV, upstairs bed slopes. Beautiful view of golf course with the ocean in the background. We were surprised at how few restaurants there are for dinner in the area.
