Great place to stay for a short trip. Kimberlee was fantastic to work with. Place was clean; sitting out on the balcony with a cup of coffee was fantastic. Would stay here again.

Four of us - my husband and I and our daughter and her husband spent a week at this spacious, well-stocked condo. A great location with excellent amenities! The bedroom and bathroom in the loft would be perfect for children or another couple. I highly recommend this place.

We had a wonderful stay at this adorable condo! It was very clean, close to town and offered many amenities. The pool and hot tub were great and there was a great farmers market down the road on Saturday. Highly recommend!

Hot tub was a nice bonus after hiking all day. Nice little suite for 2. Thanks Mike for everything!

Princeville is where you want to be as it's the most highly sought after places to be on Kauai. The Studio rental looks just like the pictures. I love the full size fridge. We don't need a kitchen since we enjoy trying out the different food places on Kauai. The high ceiling makes this unit feel so grand. Getting into the unit was easy. The access to beach chairs and snorkel equipment is a nice choice, but not used as we brought our own snorkel gear. Note: an entrance to the other unit is on the same landing and as long as you are ok with noise/chatter from other tenants, you will be fine. I am used to living in close quarters on Oahu so it wasn't as issue for us. Early in the evening we could hear our neighbor's tv on, but they shut it off relatively early. We had a patio with chairs and a drying rack. As mentioned in previous reviews, the sliding glass door's lock wasn't working. Unless someone is scaling the wall to enter it's not an issue, but it did my my young teen a little nervous initially. It's a simple fix. I would recommend this unit to others as Marily was very quick to respond to an inquiry. The price is right for this unit and I would most likely return to this unit when I visit Kaua'i once again.

The place was as described and worked well for our stay. It can be a bit loud at times due to the density of units. The bed is rather worn and continued to "taco" through the week.

Super cozy condo - perfect for a couple - a gem of a find! Great location and value. We had the best stay. The owner, Kimberlee, is also a gem of a human. Super nice and communicative, and accommodating! Fell in love with her plants and gardening around the unit. The Lani was so comfy and perfect for unwinding at the end of a busy day seeing the sites, and using all the beach gear she has available. We will be back! Hopefully, not to long. ❤️

Robyn has the condo stocked with a great variety of household items, beach gear, and everything you need for a great stay. Staying in Princeville was really ideal and a very nice neighborhood. Beach chairs, cooler, water shoes and snorkel gear were nice, the bed was comfortable and the smart tv was an added plus.

We had a blast. This was close to Hanalei which was beautiful. Close to the golf course and a park.

Has everything covered for a cost effective stay. The studio offered more space than an average hotel room and had a little sink/microwave/mini fridge/coffee maker area. Beach gear included towels, chairs, umbrella, coolers, ice packs in freezer. Hot tub/pool was perfect after a day of hiking/surfing. Zero bugs seen (this is a big deal for island rentals!). WiFi was reliable for moments of remote working. Spacious lanai for meals and chill time. Safe parking. Mike is a fantastic communicator and helped us out with some suggestions for local companies to rent boards and to go whale watching. Only note is that the walls in the development are paper thin- I could hear full conversations. It’s quiet at night in the neighborhood and everyone seems to be respectful so it didn’t interfere with sleep. We’re from the islands so we’re used close neighbors, but if you are looking for silence it may not be the spot for you. I say just bring earplugs! (You need them for Hawaii roosters anyway). Kudos to Mike for reaching out to a neighbor who was doing demolition renovation in the morning- they started later the following days and are apparently done now, so no worries. As I said: Perfect place to hang between adventures!

Ive been island hopping and stayed in a vrbo property for each stay. This was the best property. Pictures can be deceiving. In this case the pictures didnt to the property justice. It was much nicer and very well equipped. They thought of everything. It was clean, roomier than expected and easy to check in and out and parking was also easy. Excellent.

Pool and hot tub nearby were convenient. Condo was clean, is spacious, and the host communicated clearly. Easy access on the first floor and convenient parking.

Great property and location. Had an assigned parking pass which was invaluable. Watched every day as others had trouble parking as the front lot was full. Had lots of beach toys and chairs. Some of the chairs and the umbrella were not usable, but we had taken our own so wasn’t an issue. Had everything you needed in the kitchen, but no toaster. Rained for about two hours during the day in our entire two week stay. Close to Hanalei bay for great bogey boarding and to Anini beach for snorkeling and turtle watching. Overall, I would highly recommend this unit.

February 2024

Condo was within drivable distance to Hanalei attractions. Grocery store close by but too far to walk to. Clean. Enjoyed the lanai. King size bed comfortable. Didn't get to use the pool because of weather but hot tub was enjoyable. Assigned parking spot helpful. Would recommend if you want a modest place to stay while in Princeville.

Location and easy access to Princeville, Hanalei Bay and other scenic areas on the North Shore of Kauai were excellent. Property is dated and furniture, bathroom, balcony, etc. could benefit from some updating and deep/steam cleaning. Laundry machine was old, deeply rusted and stained. We were disturbed by the loud neighbors next door whose voices and movements could be heard in the evening and very early morning, as well as in the shower through very thin walls and doors. Good place if you just want to use it as a base for sightseeing in the area. Food court in nearby Princeville shopping center was good, but area restaurants were very crowded and need advance reservations. Overall a decent experience especially if you have kids.

The studio was a good price and in a good location. It has a nice pool and pretty grounds. Only suggestions: the studio could use an extra lamp and plates that can go in the microwave. Both an easy fix.

We had a wonderful stay! This studio apartment was extremely clean, private and well situated. The owner was extremely responsive and helpful. The unit has a wonderful terrace, very private...perfect for a meal, coffee or glass of wine. It is well situated...5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to the ocean....Hanalei, a quaint surf village is 10 minutes away by car. Beautiful beaches (Hanalei, Anini, Tunnels, secret beach, many others) all within 15 minutes by car (the unit also has all you need to enjoy the beach -- parasol, chairs, boogie boards, snorkle equipment, etc) Overall we were extremely satisfied.

The Condo is quiet big and the parking lot location is very convenient. Walls are thin as paper and you can hear your neighbors. Especially the upstairs neighbors (seemed to be a rental as well as guests changed during our stay) were noisy and you could hear every step. Furniture is outdated and the WiFi was not working properly. Also the kitchenutensils were not as clean as expected in this price range.
Iason B.
February 2024

Charming, cozy place for two. Super clean and comfortable. We could hear footsteps from the upstairs unit (as expected/nothing more than an average apartment) so maybe a consideration for light sleepers. Loved walking to the beach and nearby dining options!

We just returned home after spending 37 nights in this gem of a condo. It fulfilled all we were hoping to find at good value. The indoor/outdoor feeling you get with all the jalousie windows in the unit made it quite comfortable during our January-February stay. The lanai has really nice shade so it is a great place to enjoy sitting any time of the day. The king size bed was extremely comfortable-very good quality mattress. Any small concerns (garburator not working upon arrival) were very promptly resolved immediately by Megan’s handyman. We love the Princeville area as there are great facilities at Princeville Centre and it’s very near both Hanalei and Kilauea which we visited frequently for great meals out or just afternoon coffee or lattes. We felt the Aloha when maps in Apple CarPlay started referring to Sandpiper Village as returning to “Home” the last couple of weeks lol. Thank you very much Adam and Megan for sharing your piece of paradise with us. Mahalo

Very good stay for two people. We needed only a couple of nights bc we had to adjust our flight to come in sooner than we had booked our other condo for. We would stay here again!
Paula S.
February 2024

The accommodations were comfortable and adequate for the two of us. The small oven was a nice touch as well as the beach chairs and cooler. The pool and hot tub were beautifully maintained and secure in a wonderfully landscaped environment. Our stay of three days was adequate to see the north shore and eastern side of the island. There is no shortage of beaches, but parking in busier times (Christmas, spring break )would be challenging. Food trucks were great!!

We had a little trouble locating her studio in the dark and rain so a map would have been helpful. Otherwise, very clean and enjoyed the hot tub to ourselves after dark. Nice studio for 2 people!

February 2024

This lovely condo was exactly as shown! Really well set up and spacious for my husband and I. We enjoyed the kitchen and huge lanai as well as the huge shower. Mike was easy to communicate with and answered promptly. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend. Thanks Mike!!

I should have planned better, but loved my stay. It is a very nice studio with everything we needed for a few nights. The golf course looked amazing! The hosts were easy to reach and were happy to help me with my scheduling error. Everything was beautiful and I don't really have the words to adequately describe the drive up.

PROS: -great communication with host - Mike -overall condition of property really good CONS: -this is a very small unit. Its a stretch to call this meal prep area a kitchenette. -this unit is in a complex with high density housing. You will be intimate with the sounds and smells of your neighbors whether you want to or not -no views and any water/beach access is at least a 1/2 hour hike and some of that hike is difficult -I'd suggest this unit is for a single or a couple for a night or two
