An analysis of guest reviews highlights the overall positive sentiment towards the Sealodge condo resort on Kauai. Guests consistently praise the stunning ocean views from various units, emphasizing the beauty of both the ocean and the sky. The quiet and peaceful atmosphere of the resort is frequently mentioned, although one review notes that the quietness was so pronounced that even normal conversation on the patio was discouraged by a neighbor.

WOW what a location! So blessed to be a guest! The ocean view from the king bed is still fresh in my mind a month later. The local farmer's market was just right, with fresh fruit, local crafts and macadamia ice cream. Bed was good and furniture in great shape. That said: This place seriously needs a renovation. Like, maybe starting at the waterproofing (to check for mold), replace or renovate the windows and sliding door (which don't); consistent base moldings, a fresh coat of paint (throughout, not portions) a new shower fixer mixer (which doesn't come out at you when you turn it on), you get the idea. Its just real tired of being a rental and needs to be loved. Ok so big thanks to Chris the property manager who answered our call when we realized we had not received the code to enter, then showed up quick and made the garbage disposal operate ... and tighten up the toilet seat so we could sit without sliding. You made us laugh and all was good. Look, I'm not trying to step on anyone's dream here. It is what it is, and in the end, it is in Hawaii!

I’ll begin by saying we love Sealodge and that area. F9 unit has a spectacular view. We saw whales almost every day and fabulous birds. It really is a wonderful place. Unfortunately, after a few days( we rented F9 for 2 weeks) you begin to notice things. The unit really needs some new paint and some TLC. The plumbing fixtures worried me every time I went to have a shower or brush my teeth. The beds are soft. The screens have holes. The washer and dryer are sort of in the dining room with you. But then there’s the view! I waffled back and forth between loving the place and being a bit disappointed. I’d definitely rent in the Sealodge complex again, but I do not think I would ever rent F9 again.

We enjoyed the condo very much. The location was nice and condo is full of amenities and beautifully decorated. We were unable to truly enjoy the lani because the rain and wind didn't cooperate. We would stay again next time we visit Kauai

Hello, the location and place was great. Kitchen, floors and windows were all filthy. I mean likely hadn’t been cleaned or really scrubbed in 6 months. Other than that it was great.

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: Everything was amazing. The mechanica s of the place are perfect, location, check in,cleanliness. It's the awesome island feel that's everywhere. Roosters roam freely, the ocean sounds, the gentle breeze and short soft rain showers make this place a dream come true. Be prepared for quiet time with everything you need a short drive away.

We enjoyed our 4 nights at this beautiful location overlooking the ocean. We highly recommend it, though have two suggestions for improvement. 1) We saw no way to turn off the fan over the dining table while keeping the light on. There seemed to be a remote for the fan, but it did not work. 2) It would help if the light over the bathroom sink was much brighter. Otherwise, everything else was great.

A trail is on property with a 10-minute hike to a secluded beach. Great ocean view from property overlook. The only thing was foot thumping above us, kind of annoying till we got used to it. I recommend and would stay here again. It is much slower and comfortable in Princeville, north shore, vs Poipu area. There are 3 charcoal grills across parking lot from pool. More important B-9 had great pots and pans, SO NICE for cooking, Thank You.Everything was great overall.

The view was great and we spotted several whale water spouts in the ocean, seen from the dinning table! The sheets and pillow cases were clean but the bedspread, pillow and mattress had had a horrible stench of body odor! A true barbarian had stayed there who needed to be introduced to soap and water. We reported the situation to management but nothing was done. Maybe bring a can of Lysol spray with you!

Princeville is such a magical place with so much to see and do! Leila's condo was wonderful! It was so nice to come back after a day exploring. These units are some of the original in Princeville! There are vantage points all over to take in the beauty of the Pacific. The private Sealodge Beach is just a short trail walk from the property. Thank You for a most wonderful stay on the north coast!condo had everything we needed!

Nice looking condo however in my opinion the Beds were low quality. When we checked in it was in excess of 90 degrees in the condo. No AC and tood all night with open wondows to cool it down. No sleep that night.

This condo has gorgeous ocean and jungle views from every window. It is not a super large condo but is comfortable and was spotlessly clean. Well equipped! We had everything we needed and had a good week. We were in a different condo for the first 2 weeks and it was 2 bedroom/2 bathroom so understandably as this one was a 1 bedroom and was smaller.

We had a great stay at Sealodge on this first leg of our trip. Princeville was a great place. Everything we needed was at the Condo for a great day on the beach. Plenty of amenities around the area for whatever you choose to do. Would definitely stay here again if we are back on the island. We did a helicopter tour of the island the first day we were there to get the layout of things. Definitely recommend it if you want to see the entire island. The Napali Coast was absolutely breathtaking from the air. Waimea Canyon is a great place for hiking. Po'ipu, Hanapepe, Kapaa, Hanalei Bay, were amazing little towns for sight seeing! So much to see, if we only had more time. Until next time Kauai, Mahalo!

We loved our stay at the condo. It has an incredible view, on our first day we saw whales not to mention there were breathtaking sunrises every morning. The kitchen was fully stacked (we stayed at a lot different places and this was the best - coffee, spices, oil, dressings, flour, ect.). Place is very clean, a lot of towels and beach supplies (chairs, snorkeling gear, even a cooler). We found Sealodge beach was the best for snorkeling, plus very secluded and beautiful, lots of fish, we also saw a sea turtle and a seal. Thank you it was a perfect vacation.

The view was amazing! The unit quite old, not a lot of updates. The sliding windows and doors were difficult to open. The slider had a huge gap at the top and I had maintenance come to fix it. The plumbing was just plain super loud! I also found dirty dishes in the cupboard. When I phoned the office they were very accommodating. In spite of the drawbacks I would stay there again.

The Sealodge didn’t disappoint. This is our second time staying here and have recommended friends. All around great experience.

Cons: There was a large tattered tarp covering the porch area outside our front door because the stairs to access the unit were under repair. We had to climb up then down several stairs with heavy luggage to get to the unit. This was not communicated beforehand. The unit itself was fairly clean but the windows on the beach side were very dirty inside and out, covered with small "tufts" of some sort of grey matter. The front door could really use a new handle, and stuck so that you had to put your weight against it to open. Also there are 2 keypads, one which is no longer used but it was not apparent or in the instructions so we were using the wrong one for the code at first. Easy fix- remove it or make instructions more clear. Pool was pretty chilly, might be nice for hot summer months but not January. Pros: The view cannot be beat! Gorgeous unobstructed view of the water. The place itself was cute, nice size with extras such as snorkel equipment, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers and a beach umbrella. The area is quiet and felt safe. The private beach was nice - sand was very course but it was pretty and not crowded since it was private. The hike the get there was also pretty. Overall we really enjoyed our stay but feel with a little TLC this place could be even better! Pros: The view cannot

We were happy with our stay at Sealodge H9. The unit was everything we expected and more. Beautiful location and views. The unit itself had everything we needed. The only negatives regarding the property is that both snorkel masks were broken. We had to purchase masks for a local store. We left the masks in the unit for future guests. Also the sliding door to the lanei kept falling out the track. Easy fix. Also everyone says the north shore area is the rainy side of the island. We stayed for six days and five of those day the weather was sunny and amazing. The condo units definitely need an upgrade as the wooden shingles on the exterior are quite weathered and aged. But the interior of the unit was amazing. We would definitely stay again. Overall a 5 Star property.

It was okay, had a problem with TV (we’re not techy folks) and office called back next day (even though it was supposed to be open when we called) to solve it but in the meantime we missed the Super Bowl. Hubby not a happy camper! Bathroom extremely small. Mostly clean but could use a little extra cleaning in places.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: we have stayed at Sealodge before but this was our first time in G4. The views from the dining table as pictured and the lanai were exquisite as was the sound of the breaking surf. The upgraded pool facility was nice, parking was easy, location and access to Princeville cannot be beat. The unit has had some upgrades, but it is a bit run down. One the stove burners did not work, and the some of the kitchen items were sparse (3 wineglasses total). It was nice to have beach chairs, towels, etc. for our use. The barbecue situation is inadequate, requiring charcoal and a walk down a rutted path but understandable given the wood shake buildings. Management was easy to work with. I think we will return, perhaps to another unit.

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was very 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: Have rented at Sea Lodge before, though not this unit. This unit was bit dated but more than adequate. Lovely lanai views. All that we needed was at hand short a can opener. Unfortunately on third day I took a bad fall on trail up from beach. Had to be flown out on helicopter. Spent four days in hospital with broken pelvis. My wife spent one more night there before checking out to be closer to hospital. Only beef with management company was no response to wife’s call and e-mail informing them of what had happened. No expectation of refund but some show of concern would have been nice. Oh the beach was lovely. Would stay at Sea Lodge again but this unit wouldn’t be first choice .

Great views. Loved this condo. Didn’t like the check out procedures regarding they only wash two towels per bathroom or charge a laundry fee. Condo could use a little tlc, broken blinds would be an easy fix. But besides that the price was great for what we got and would stay again.

Nice area, a bit far away from most things and cloudier/rainy than the rest of the island but a great place to stay for the price!

View was incredible, and location was really good. Close to shopping, easy to get to all the north shore sights and activities. Stars were brilliant because there’s not the usual light pollution, and we watched whales from the lanai. Beach chairs and cooler etc could use an upgrade, and the kitchen supplies were adequate but not exceptional. Loved having laundry in the suite. The complex has a bit of a rustic look/feel to it, and the view made it a very special few days.

This was a wonderful stay at Sealodge. Easy check- in and responsive host. Perfect location, close to everything needed for an easy no hassle vacation. Watch the stars on the lodge lawn at night and wake up to whale watching from your bedroom window! Hike down to the private beach and take a short car trip to Hanalei for a meal and shave ice. Just perfect.

We absolutely loved our stay. This is on the top floor with amazing views of the ocean. The apartment was very clean and came stocked with 2 beach chairs, towels, sunscreen, beach umbrella and even a boogie board. The only issue is the front lock is a bit hard to open the first time. We struggled with this for a few minutes upon arriving but then figured it out. We loved our stay here.

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful spot. We arrived after dark and the check in was easy . We fell asleep listening to the waves. When the morning came, we were awe-struck. The view is simply incredible. You will find it hard to leave the deck! We loved the adorable condo with so many cute touches to make it special. A comfortable bed, full kitchen and washer/dryer made the stay so easy. I highly recommend this place. We hope to return again in the future

Thank God for beautiful views of the beach - the interior specifically the bedding left little to be desired. The bed wasn’t the most comfortable but the sunrise view from the bed makes up for it. The kitchen sink wouldn’t drain. And the bathroom is about as basic as it gets - make sure you check the water temp before entering or you might get a surprise in either direction. We loved the location and views - meets all your basic needs including beach chairs, towels, cooler and snorkel equipment.
