The house was great. Very clean and well stocked. Had everything we needed for the week. Plenty of towels and linens. Very equipped kitchen. The house was spacious enough for the five of us to spread out. Would definitely book again.

Our family of five stayed for a week this April - the rental is spacious, clean and well-stocked. Check in and communication were easy and we had no issues throughout the week. Thanks for hosting us!

Clean and quiet

April 2024

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great location. Every amenity you could imagine - even more than we have at our house! One complaint would be the master bedroom faces another property across the street, which turns their fountain off at night. A loud motor comes on intermittently, which, ironically, sounds like a bullfrog. Very noisy and irritating when you’re trying to enjoy a quiet tropical vacation. Mentioning this for those who are sensitive to noise. I would recommend earplugs if using that bedroom.

Property was amazing. We had a wonderful time. So appreciated pull out coach in office for our 15 yr old grandson. Working with Remax was easy, had all information needed. Only concern was fitting 2 large cars in garage. It was a puzzle but we figured it out.

Very nice accommodation in the perfect location. Very comfortable beds. I appreciated the basic kitchen food items that were allowed to remain from previous renters. Kitchen also well stocked with cooking utensils!!! Lots of ocean toys and beach chairs! I would definitely recommend and stay again!!

We had a fantastic stay!! The condo has plenty of space for everyone in our party- we had teenagers, adult children, and a grandbaby at various times. We also had everything we would want as far as kitchen supplies and beach towels etc. The pictures show a variety of beach items in the garage and it was disappointing to learn that not all of them were available for our use. The furniture shows some wear and can be uncomfortable as a result but we didn’t spend a lot of time inside. It would also be nice to have had spare linens for when we washed the sheets and towels during our stay. The pool was convenient and beautiful and the rental company was very responsive. Princeville is lovely and we will stay again!!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The condo was a great place to stay. We really enjoyed our time on the island and the condo gave us a great place to relax after all our adventures. The beach gear in the garage was a wonderful addition and made beach days amazing. Kayak Wailua took us on a great paddle trip up the river and hike to the water falls, highly recommend a guided trip with them. Loved zip lining with Kauai Backcountry, would do that again and again. The beaches are amazing. Can't wait for the next trip.

This was a perfect vacation home for our family of six. It was very clean and spacious with many amenities. It is located in a beautiful area close to beaches, grocery store, and beautiful Hanalei with restaurants and shopping. We used the grill at the pool and prepared many meals in the well equipped kitchen. It was great to have a cooler, ice packs, chairs, snorkel gear, and boogie boards all available for those many beach days. It is simply a great home, in a great location, on a beautiful island.

Beautiful facility. Had a wonderful time. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was fully stocked with more than enough items. Wery close to pool 👍 Water feature across street kept the master bedroom sleepers up all night. It wasnt the water itself it was the pumps running the water. They sounded like bullfrogs. Other than that the property was perfect.

We had an amazing time. I will definitely stay at this condo again and also refer friend's. It was such a beautiful location. Very quiet and close to some restaurants. We even went to the farmers market in the neighborhood. We talked to several people while using the pool and hot tub. Everyone was so friendly. We ate out on our deck each morning and the trees snd shrubs were so lush you didn’t really see other people on their decks.

The amenities of swimming pool, jucuzzi and barbecues were beautiful and well maintained as was the entire Nihilani community with the exception of Condo 24C were 3 generational family of seven spent a 10 day vacation. The inside of the condo was very dirty and lacked basic maintenance. For example, the deck slider would barely "slide" and the screen slider was badly torn. Potted plants on the deck were dying due to lack of water and care. The kitchen/bathroom cabinet doors fell off. Bathroom floors had dried urine and sand/pebbles strewn about. Several window shades were broken. Bedding appeared "slept in" . Carpeting and walls were dirty. Master bath shower leaked water on the floor when used since the rubber edging was torn and the soaking tub had no stopper. All counter surfaces were dirty. I spent two hours cleaning upon our arrival before we could unpack our personal clothing and items. I requested a return of the cleaning fee since the unit hadn't been cleaned upon our arrival. The property manager was uncooperative and said I should have given them a chance to correct the problems. I did contact! My family would have needed to vacate the property for them to repair the neglected maintenance and deep clean the unit. There is also a 2-car garage available for use with cigarette butts strewn about. Overall, an uncomfortable condo. However, the condo itself is beautiful and well appointed just severely neglected in terms of cleaning and maintenance repair.

Teflon pans were very scratched up and KVRR delivered new ones the same day we notified them! Loved that the townhouse is an end unit so there were windows on both the side and back.

Wonderful! Clean, spacious, comfortable. Suited 4 adults perfectly. Kitchen well appointed. Just needs a kettle! Bedrooms/bathrooms great. Town of Hanalei and good beaches close by. If you’re looking for bigger shopping/dining or outdoor adventures, you’ll have to drive at least an hour to Kapaa, Lihue or Poipu. But, we found Princeville to be quiet (kinda off the beaten path), lush and a little more laid back. We would stay in Princeville again (not that we didn’t take those longer drives!) and would rent 11A again in a heartbeat!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our experience with this vacation rental was exceptional. The home was very clean and spacious. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with pans and utensils to bake and cook with. There was a nice welcome gift waiting for us when we got there. The check in and check out process was easy and quick. Customer service was very good. They were in contact with us by email/text throughout the trip. Easy access to a store. Woke up to birds and roosters every morning. Other than that, it was very quiet. Beautiful pool and hot tub that our kids loved. We also LOVED the extras that were provided - boogie boards, beach towels, swim noodles, sand buckets, beach umbrella, snorkeling equipment. We would highly recommend this property and would give it more than five stars if we could.

The condo was wonderful clean, comfortable and peaceful. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves since there were no other people studying in the other condos. The pool is good but the pictures in the listing definitely give it more glam than it really is but the kids enjoyed it. The location was great for our disk golf adventure and quick beach access. I love the fact that Kauai beach access free to park at. Because a lot of the beaches on the other islands aren’t. The old town Hanalei is great for eating and shopping. Over all we will rent the condo again in the future.

To start the owner/host was amazing to work with (not sure if name should be listed). I was trying to paperless on the trip and when we arrived needed urgent information. The very quick response was very much appreciated. The condo was beautiful and very clean. The pool was nice and close and used everyday. The location was perfect. I know my review may seem over-the-top…but this place was! We can’t wait to come back.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very dirty. I was very happy with the location. I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great location. The property on the outside is beautiful. Everything was nicely manicured. Pool and hot tub a bonus! The inside, different story. Dirty, dirty, dirty. King bed comfortable. Queen bed awful hard, like sleeping on a board. It is advertised as a AC unit, but you are limited to how cool it can be. Shampoo was watered down? Very limited amenities. Kitchen has a coffee pot, not a keurig. Fridge dirty. Dishwasher does not work, pretty dirty inside. Pretty sure the water pressure does not allow a good clean cycle, the detergent capsule does not dissolve. We were charged a cleaning fee, but pretty sure there is no cleaning in between guests. They did have bikes, chairs, snorkel gear and beach stuff in the garage which was nice.
