What a beautiful property with a beautiful view. You are directly over Hideaways beach and the surf was firing the entire week. If I ever return to the North Shore this property will be my first choice.

Very clean, spacious, and nicely furnished. Great location for Princeville and Hanalei treks. Whale sightings were numerous. Only negatives are LOTS of steps and can’t see Bali Hai from lanai.

We loved everything about the condo, i.e., the spectacular view, very clean, great location, great amenities in the condo. The owners have everything you can imagine that you need, from the kitchen, activity toys, etc. The bed queen size bed in the spare bedroom has been changed out to a king size bed.

Condo is well appointed with stunning ocean views and it was so relaxing to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the waves. Would definitely stay here again. Lovely walks every morning. We left feeling invigorated and renewed!

This was our first time to Kauai and this unit was beautiful and a quiet area to stay in, it was all that was advertised. The owners were so easy to work with and we would stay here again. There are so many things in the area to do and many beaches in the northern part of the island. We have been to the other Hawaiian Islands before but this is the best one by far.

This property is perfect in every way. Well stocked kitchen for cooking, comfy beds, nice linens, beach toys in excellent condition and it is sparkling clean. The view is stellar from the full moon setting in the early morning hours to the sunset over the Na Pali cliffs, it really cannot be beat. Location is great, two easy beaches you can walk to. Owners are very responsive and honestly this place is one of the best we've ever rented.

January 2024

This unit is fabulous. Has everything you need, owner is extremely responsive and helpful. And the location is spectacular. You walk off the lanai onto a plush lawn that is on a cliff with full ocean view. During our stay we saw whales daily and enjoyed watching the surfers. The only slight negative with this unit is the stairs. While technically a ground floor unit, there are 2+ flights of stairs to get down to it, so this should be a consideration if you have mobility issues. Other wise I can't say enough good things about the experience. Definitely recommend.

The property was great and as described. Unfortunately the A/C had broken down just before we arrived. The owner/manager let us know before we arrived, and luckily it wasn't too hot, and open windows and fans were fine. They also allowed us to have a late checkout which made all the difference as we had an evening flight home. Tennis courts and pool were great. And the snorkelling at Hideaways Beach below was great. Swam with turtles!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. 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: I found out at the last minute that I needed to fly to Kauai for a business matter and Oceanfront Realty International was able to provide me with beautiful accomodations in Princeville that had phenomenal ocean views and everything that I could've asked for considering my last minute need. I would definitely use Oceanfront Realty for any future bookings.

This spectacular property is exactly as described and pictured in the listing. The condominium was clean, very well furnished and tastefully decorated. The interior space is bright and airy with beautiful views. Our favorite space was the atrium - a literal window to the sky and stars above and the pounding surf below. The lanai is spacious with lots of seating and a gas grill. We highly recommend this property. Jeanie and Bob

The condo was very comfortable. We enjoyed the privacy of the unit and the complex. The two lanai were very nice. Spacious master suite, living room and kitchen.

What an awesome stay - the renovations to 407 were IMO off the charts - well stocked with everything you need - the office when needed twice during our stay were very responsive - will definitely return!

We have stayed in many units in Pu’u Poa and this is our favorite. One of my first nights I was standing in the kitchen ( you almost get a 180 degree view of the ocean) and we saw whales breaching… From the kitchen! My favorite though, was drinking coffee on the lanai, watching the surfers every morning. Such a beautiful was to begin our day. The owners quickly responded to any questions, the unit was very clean, and the pictures did not do it justice. We will be booking again as soon as we can!

It was a joy to step into this living space. The view is fabulous, and the condo had everything we needed. The master bedroom is not exactly private with louvered doors to the main living area. There was also noise on the glass roof when it rained which might bother someone on the sofa bed. The marble step up from the living area could be difficult for some moving babies. There is a public parking lot that you can see from the kitchen. On the whole the location is very good.

The views are amazing. Well stocked kitchen beach chairs and umbrella. Quiet location very relaxing. Loved waking up to the sound of waves and the unbelievable view

We enjoyed our stay immensely! The condo is decorated so nicely and has everything and more that you could possibly think of. It’s close to hideaway beach and the 1 Hotel where we dined and had drinks. With only a ten minute drive to Hanalei, we were able to enjoy more rest and cools bars and shops as well as the beautiful Hanalei Bay Beach. I would definitely come back to this location!

We stayed here on our family vacation and I have to say that it may be the best property that we have ever been to. First of all, the location and view is unbeatable. Secondly, the property has everything you could need. From the Keurig to oils, cooking spices, plenty of towels and a washer & dryer, we felt right at home. Everything from the beds, furniture, linens, deck chairs were clean and comfortable. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. 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: Terrific location with amazing view of ocean. Nice complex and spacious 2-bedroom unit. Well provisioned with kitchenware, beach equipment, linens, furniture, etc. Was overall clean, but some visible weather damage inside, carpets stained multiple places, missing/broken screens on windows, and most appliances older, so not refurbished as implied by listing. Overall, a nice stay, but had expected better condition for the price.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. 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 is a fantastic Penthouse property in Princeville! We stayed with our teenage children from Christmas through New Year's and the condo was exactly as described. The views from the condo can't be beat! The condo is on the 3rd floor, which is the top floor of the property, allowing for privacy, so no other unit is above you. It is a very quiet unit and very clean. The beds are extremely comfortable. The pool is about a 5 minute walk and also has a beautiful ocean view. The kitchen is equipped with all the dishes/supplies you could need for cooking. The bedrooms, dining room, and living room all have ceiling fans, making the unit very comfortable. Lori, the Property Manager was extremely responsive to any of our questions. We highly recommend this property!

Fortunately, this was not the first time we were on Kauai (this was our 6th time), so we were not really upset when it absolutely poured rain (like I have never seen before) for six days and six nights - constantly. We had previously done all that Kauai had to offer. If we had not, this would have been a wasted stay. I am not exaggerating. Accordingly, we could not sit out on the beautiful lanai that overlooked the ocean. We could, however, hear the ocean. We absolutely froze the first few nights in the condo as many windows (eight) facing the ocean would not close. The main bedroom television did not work and four days after we reported it, someone finally showed up and said we needed a new cable box. We did not receive one during our stay. Other issues were similarly not addressed until the fourth day of our six day stay. "Property management" was severley lacking. The main bathroom sink faucet sprayed water everywhere. The locks did not work on either the lanai screen or sliding door. The kitchen was lacking in utensils and the bath towels were only average. The owners obviously do not trust renters with nicer things. We also stayed in a condo on Maui and a house on Oahu on this trip and this condo was the worst in terms of thinking of items renters may need or enjoy and in terms of quality. While this condo could be a wonderful place to stay, it needs updating, repairs (rusted mirrors, one large area of the floor was duct taped) and nicer accoutrements.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. 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: The property has a spectacular view and was very comfortable. Two issues: 1) the beach chairs have rotted from being stored outside on the balcony. 2) The TV stations accessible are terrible; no local TV, no access to cable stations. The access was to hundreds of one subject station cable stations. The old adage works here "hundreds of stations, nothing on".

If are here--reading this, stop now and book this condo! Our stay at this exquisite, well-appointed beach condo was an absolute delight! From booking to check-out, our experience with Keith and this location was magnificent. Set perfectly along the coastline, Pu'u Poa 111 offered a beautiful, quiet escape with close access to the pool and beach. The condo itself was a haven of elegance and comfort. Every detail, from the beautiful decor to the plush furnishings, exuded luxury. The spacious layout allowed room for all of us to relax, while the views of the ocean from the living area and lanai were breathtaking. What truly set this condo apart were its thoughtful amenities. The fully equipped kitchen made meal preparation a breeze, the provided soaps and shampoos were amazing, and the private fully stocked lanai provided a perfect spot for watching the waves and sunsets. The attention to detail was evident in the quality of linens, the cleanliness of the space, and the modern appliances—all of which enhanced the overall experience. The access to the lawn was a game-changer for us. We could walk out to the cliff, lounge in grass, or watch the birds and nene. The provided outdoor gear—chairs, umbrellas, etc.—added an extra layer of convenience. Keith deserves applause for his attentiveness and professionalism. Any questions or needs were promptly answered, contributing to a hassle-free and enjoyable stay. If we head back to this area, staying here again is our first priority!

Beautiful Condo on Princeville's North Shore! Great access to beaches, beautiful views watching surfers every morning. Condo is well-equipped, clean, and with comfortable beds. Had everything we needed for our stay! Lucy was responsive and check-in was easy. Beach towels, chairs, snorkel gear available for use. Wonderful Christmas Trip with our family!

This well-equipped condo was a great spot for our family of 5. Very clean, great views, lots of space. The foldout bed lacked privacy but it worked for us. The town of Princeville has a grocery store, restaurants, and shops. Close to beaches, hiking, and shopping. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This property was in a great location and unit was clean and AMAZING!! The two large lanais were the best part. We watched surfers and heard waves all day long. We did not want to come home. We will definitely be coming back to this same place again, sooner than later!

This property is beautiful! The inside is clean, updated and very spacious. Our favorite was the lanai/patio which was private and had a beautiful view of the Pacific. The location in Princeville is convenient and close to several restaurants and a grocery store. The drive to Hanalei Bay is also very easy from here. We had a wonderful and relaxing stay!

We loved our stay in this gorgeous home. It's on a hill with wonderful views of Hideaway's Beach (accessible by trail) where the snorkeling is incredible. It's also right next door to the 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay, where we enjoyed several meals and happy hours. The unit is clean and well equipped with everything we needed. There are views from pretty much every room. We'd absolutely stay here again. Highly recommend.

Pu'a Poa 402 is the most beautiful place we've ever stayed. The condo is beautiful with everything available to make our stay perfect. The location was extremely quiet and peaceful. The view and private deck is a great place to sit, listen to the ocean and watch people surf. We actually miss being there but will be back. Thanks again Gary!
JAMES A.
December 2023

Very happy with our recent stay. It's a quick hike down to Hidden Beach, but the surf was rough and the coral close to shore, so not ideal for little kids if you bring any. Very convenient western edge of the Princeville development means you're only minutes away by car to Hanalai shops, restaurants and beaches. Owner is very accommodating and provides a helpful info on restaurants, beaches, and places of interest. Would stay here again without hesitation.

December 2023

Great place to stay for views, beach and golf in a comfortable environment. We cooked every night enjoying the fish and vegetables of Kauai.

Check in was so easy (just show up and use the key pad for access). The condo felt like a home with upto date furniture and kitchen utensils. Location is definitely one of the best on Kauai, next door to 1 Hotel ( previously Ritz Carlton). Host was engaged and local, able to respond to any pressing need (though we had none). Will book this condo again.

November 2023

WOW was our reaction when we walked through the front doors. Panoramic views of Bali Hai and pacific ocean from solarium and lanai. If you are a group of 2-4 people book this property! Kitchen/dinging area/living room/lanai are great spaces and very well equipped. The property is in top condition and communications with the owner were simple and very helpful. Don't foget to snorkel at Hideaway Beach which is below the property. Amaing snorkeling with the most healthy coral we have seen in sometime.
Patrick K.

We loved our vacation in Kauai and especially the condo and property. The proximity to North Kauai's beaches, Hanalei, The Na Pali Coast Trail, Princeville and Kilauea was great. Paul was a great host with good communication about the condo. Looking forward to a return trip!

This is a little oasis tucked inside Princeville. The management was amazing and we had a seamless vacation! The home is inviting and walking distance to a beautiful, calm beach. They left a sweet assortment of welcome goodies, which started us off on the right foot :). You will love your stay here!
Kelsey M.

This place was in the heart of everything Princeville. You can walk to One Hotel, hideaway, beach, etc. Lovely lovey place with all of the right appointments. If you check in at night, just know that the parking area is super dark and it's a bit cumbersome = but that can be cured with a flashlight. This place was a 5 out of 5. I liked it so much, I left my watershoes on their back porch!

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Lucy’s condo. It was exactly as described and pictured. Condo was great with everything we needed. Views from the lanai are fantastic. Short walk to beaches and several restaurants. Easy drive to Hanalei. Nice relaxing stay.
