The Cliffs Reviews


Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was 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: We were greeted with a pleasant staff on our check-in. We checked in at night, around 6:30PM I believe. The place was tidy when we got there, but I instantly noticed an odor; kind of a body odor smell as I opened the door, but it went away on day 2. I appreciate how they had ice trays, beach chairs, and a cooler available for use. They have coffee, toiletries, and a washer/dryer unit with some laundry detergent and dryer sheets. The vibe is very Hawaii too, which my fiancé and I loved. The area is so peaceful and quiet. By day 3, we noticed a lot of flies coming from the bathroom. We did not use the bathroom trash bin as it was underneat the sink the whole time. We also did not keep anything perishable in the rental. From night 3 to night 5 and the morning we left, we were trying to kill flies because there were a lot of them. We noticed they came from the tiny holes of the bathroom light. We reported it to the receptionist. She said the maggots might have already been there before we came. I wouldve given 5 stars for everything if not for those flies. A few is okay, but it was around 30-40 flies that we killed.

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: The cliffs is a really nice setting and the apartments are pretty comfortable and well featuredThis unit had a nice breeze, never hot. The refrigerator was a little dated and dinged and there was an older lounge chair and ottoman with a towel on it - if I were the owners , I'd replace the chair and fridge just to present a less "worn" lookI'd stay here again , the location was great and comfortable, most of the time a condo is a place to prepare meals, sleep and recharge for the next days activities and this place checked all those boxesGreat view of the ocean from the common areas

The condo was great. Fixtures and fittings were a little dated and could use some updating. All in all a very comfortable stay with all the amenities.

We had a great stay at the condo. It was prefect for my husband, daughter, and I. Very clean and well appointed and the views were gorgeous. The grounds were very nicely kept and the location adjacent to the pool was perfect. No complaints whatsoever. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends & family for sure. FYI if you have not traveled to Kauai before, I recommend that you bring some ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Chickens are part of island life and the roosters start to crow at the first hint of dawn. All part of the experience :)

The apartment was extremely spacious and well equipped. The apartment was well situated on the property with quick and easy access to the cliffs and to the pool. We really enjoyed attending the "owners" Mai Tai reception on Monday afternoon. Most of the apartments appeared to be time shares, so if you are looking this is the place to be. The views on the photo are a tad deceptive, we are about 800 yards (700 metres) from the cliffs, yet the views from one of the 2 lanais are amazing. I worked most mornings (4 AM to noon) to be on East coast time and the Internet speeds were better than what I have at home. This will be on our list of properties to consider for our next trip to the garden spot of Hawaii.

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful property for nine nights. The condo was very nice and comfortable, we enjoyed the view from our lanai each morning. Plenty of space. There was a mechanical issue with the dishwasher. However, Roger kept us informed on the repair. The owners even gave us a discounted daily rate because the dishwasher wasn’t working. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness. The property the condo is located on has everything you need, including an adult only hot tub. The location provides easy access to Hanalei bay and downtown Princeville. We enjoyed the condo and our vacation very much and would recommend anyone to stay in this beautiful condo.

Enjoyed our stay at this property. The views were amazing! The property was nicely landscaped and clean. For a good sized complex it was very quiet during the day and evening. There were seven of us staying there and we had plenty of room.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the condo. The ocean view was amazing. The condo is quite roomy, clean and well equipped. The sounds of the birds (roosters) was an added plus. The grounds are well kept and it was nice sitting by the cliffs watching and listening to the waves. Communication with Dwight was great. Super speedy responses. Thank you for sharing your bit of Kauai with us.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The views and location on the property were great. The unit was super clean, inside and out. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed in the bathrooms. There were also a lot of beach/leisure items available for our use (chairs, boogie boards, coolers, etc.). In some ways the unit is dated (popcorn ceiling, tile countertops, etc.), but it did not take away from our enjoyment of the property.

We loved this one-bedroom home on the north shore of Kauai. The apartment was even bigger than it seemed from the pictures. The two balconies were a bonus--one with an ocean view and one shaded by a tropical garden. Management responded quickly when we had a slow bathtub and we were very happy to have a washer/dryer available. I would happily recommend this home in The Cliffs at Princeville.

November 2023

This condo was perfect for our week long vacation to Kauai with our daughter (age 6). We felt like it was the perfect location, with the best amenities. We took advantage of the pool/hot tub, grills, cliffside chairs and rental check-out items (masks, beach toys, etc). They provided plenty of beach gear in the condo, as well (chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, cooler). Despite some reviewers complaints about the lack of a/c and views, we did not feel the same. The views were beautiful on both lanai’s (despite one facing the parking area), and you can even see the ocean on the kitchen lanai. It was great for morning coffee and breakfast, or dinner. With the doors and windows open, we felt very comfortable in the evenings due to a very pleasant breeze. The only (very minor) issues we encountered- the tub drain stopper was broken so our daughter was forced to take a shower. Not a big deal for us, but I imagine you’ll want to verify if it’s been fixed if you expect to use the bath. Also, we had to go to the receptionist for coffee filters, since there were none provided. There was a place labeled for them in the kitchen, so I assumed it was just an oversight. Lastly, there were no kitchen cooking essentials (oil, salt, pepper, etc). I understood this during COVID, but it seems silly anymore. Resorts seem to do this more often and we came in expecting none. Overall, we’d highly recommend this place and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again!

The location was very nice, I felt safe. the pool is in the small side, there is no beach access. its a beach view. there is no air conditioner so if you go late sept or oct you should be okay. there was fans in each room which helped. there is a parking fee of $10/night. the unit was clean nice and located near the pool. over all this place was nice

Wonderful stay, place is perfectly situated closest to ocean cliffs. Would suggest a couple of things: 1) adding a bedroom a/c if possible 2)updating a couple of beach chairs 3)just a few minor kitchen supplies would help such as salt and pepper although not sure resort cleaning crew allows it as other people we talked to said their kitchen had none? But minor items, place is as advertised, The Cliffs is a great facility, would definitely stay here again, thanks Catherine for being a wonderful host and answering all our questions in a timely manner.

October 2023

Our trip to Kauai was absolutely amazing, and staying at this property was the icing on the cake. It was clean, very comfortable, with everything one needs from kitchen to beach accessories. Too many thoughtful details to mention. And the pictures do not do the view justice. Absolutely beautiful! We pretty much lived out on the lanai, it is that incredible! The owner went above and beyond to provide us with property, as well as island information. He checked in with us a few times before our visit to make sure we had everything we needed. The Cliff's personnel were equally as friendly and accommodating. This property is situated in a quiet, safe, convenient area. No negatives here, only a strong desire to return ASAP!

October 2023

We enjoyed our stay here, and the location was good for exploring the Hanalei Bay and norther Kauai areas. None of the units in this subdivision have AC and cross ventilation can be a challenge because the unit is on the first floor - which means that windows cannot be left open all the time. There is a box fan in the unit, and it helps at night. The unit itself is well appointed by rather aged. It needs many upgrades, which the owners claim are coming. For a basic stay in Princeville, this unit is a good value. The community has nice amenities (pool, tennis, basketball courts etc.) and was family friendly (we were not with our kids, but we saw many). There were also rental Teslas at the main office and sports equipment to borrow.

This was a great property with a great view. Condo was clean and roomy. The Cliffs has great amenities, the kids really enjoyed the pool. There is a closet full of beach stuff, we used the chairs every day. Only thing missing was an umbrella. No a/c but with patio doors open and ceiling fans was very comfortable. Only recommendation maybe a ceiling fan on the patio. Would recommend, great condo.

Our stay at this resort was an overall great experience. The patio provided a beautiful place to relax, play cards and watch the ocean all day long. The rooms were accompanied with gorgeous Hawaiian decor and stayed relatively cool throughout the day. Kitchen was stocked with all appliances necessary to cook all meals. The location was ideal as it sat on the ocean and was convenient in proximity to the town.

This rental in Princeville was amazing! I was there for my 50th birthday with two friends and two cousins. There was more than enough room for five ladies to be extremely comfortable. The kitchen was well provisioned as was the whole home. There are so many items in the gear closet that you could not ask for more. Additionally, the view was amazing. I hope to stay at this rental again on my next visit to Kauai. Lastly, communication with the host was excellent!

The property was very clean and well stocked with dishes, wine glasses and even a cooler to take to the beach and beach chairs. Loved the large windows and 2 patios. No a/c but didn’t need it with the breezes coming thru the unit. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Not many restaurants in Princeville but the resort had a wood fired pizza truck come a few times during the week. A resort close by had other food trucks on site.

I loved staying on the north shore and this was a great spot to do so from. Lots of amenities on the property and helpful staff. I appreciated Milo and Theresa’s quick responses and the book of suggestions for activities and dining on the island. Super cute place with a full kitchen too.

October 2023

The condo was gorgeous - as an interior designer, the furnishings made me very happy ☺️. My partner and I joked that it was almost too comfy because it made us want to stay in and not go out and do our adventures. The beach chairs and umbrella came in super handy and I loved all of the Snapware that the kitchen had so we could cut up all our fresh fruit and bring it with us for the day! The bicycles at the facility were a pleasant surprise and we used those multiple times to check out some near-ish by sights. The condo is located in a resort-type suburb and pretty much everything has to be driven to. I only mention this because winding suburban development is personally not my jam. I'd prefer to have eating, shopping, etc. in walking distance and you can't really get that in a golf resort hellscape*. *just my hatred of water resources going to golf courses shining through here...😉 That type of location may be other people's jam, so if that's the case for you, then this rental is perfection!

The ocean view from the patio was awesome , it was nice to be at a corner location and close to the cliffs. It was very relaxing , the condo had all the things we needed. The beach chairs were very handy. Was nice to have free bike rentals also.The only things that need improvement is the front door, it is hard to open. The vertical blinds need some work also. But overall, I would definitely recommend staying there, and hope to come back one day.

My family of 4 rented both units (with connecting foyer) for our very first trip to Kauai. It was perfect for us because the kids had their own bathroom, kitchenette and sitting spaces for attending their online classes, while mom & dad could enjoy some much needed R&R. The Wi-Fi was seamless to support them as well while they attended class. The cleanliness of the entire place was definitely to our same home standards (5 stars!) & we all remained healthy from start to finish, which left us to our adventures! The linens (including the top quilts were freshly washed, so it really felt like home. The surrounding property outside the 2 Lanai’s was gorgeous, tranquil & lush. We thoroughly enjoyed our daily visit from our gecko friend, the chickens & our free access to pick fresh produce! The pools were perfect and we surprisingly visited them more than once (in addition to adventuring!) The grounds at the cliffs is one of a kind beautiful & I’ll leave it at that, as you must experience it for yourself! The short walk to the cliffs over the ocean was breathtaking and had many surprises along the way. The Owners Milo & Theresa were the most responsive hosts we’ve ever had, and we could really tell they truly cared for their property & everyone who stays here. Milo & Theresa thought of everything! Having beach gear in the rooms was awesome & saved on having to rent gear elsewhere! Talk about convenient! We already have plans to stay here in the near future! Thank you!

We loved our stay in princeville. The location was perfect for us! We enjoyed the view of the ocean, and the size of the place. The check-in process was a little rough for us, but not for any particular reason besides the lock pad on the door was dead and there was a miscommunication with the office about where thw key to our room was located. Otherwise, it was a lovely stay!

We had a wonderful stay for our honeymoon! The apartment was absolutely stunning and had everything we needed (big comfy bed, lots of storage, snorkel gear, beach towels, chairs and umbrella, tennis rackets). Both ends of the suite had a lanai, each with a stunning view, either of the ocean and grounds or a gorgeous peekaboo view of the beautiful pool area and surrounding jungle. The amenities area was very beautiful with many different areas to explore (warm pool, colder pool, hot tubs, lots of seating, gym, common area). We will return!

Our family of 4 had plenty of room here to use as our base for exploring our favoutite island. The amenities are great though we didn't make us of all of them and the location is great for accessing all the best spots on the North Shore. The apartment has all you need (though some of the snorkel gear is worn out and could use a refresh). The complex was quiet and allowed for a relaxing break. Check-in was slightly difficult as the reception staff didn't realize that a physical key was needed and we had to return to reception to get it after discovering the error.

Very nicely decorated with comfortable beds and a fully stocked kitchen. We were informed ahead of time that the washer and dryer were out of order. There were problems with water flooding that were promptly reported and early the next day two maintenance people showed up to turn off the leaky water valve behind the washing machine. There was water damage to the shoe molding that was also reported. The VACASA team was very responsive and helpful throughout our stay. This property is in a peaceful location within a resort overlooking the North Pacific. It is not air conditioned, but trade winds helped when windows and sliding glass doors were kept open. The resort is located is convenient with beaches, shops, churches, and state parks within 2-20 miles.

The overall property is beautiful and well maintained! The staff are super nice and helpful. The unit we were in could have used a little attention in the way of updates furniture and bathroom. The leg fell off a nightstand and the shower doors were a bit wonky. That being said, it was still a beautiful place to stay and I would highly recommend it! If I one thing that consistently bothered me, it would be the roosters crowing in the early morning hours, but not much to do about that. Still a great stay!

The unit was in a great location. Nice big bedroom with own lanai. there is a great breeze to cool off unit quickly with both bedroom and lanai doors open, breeze comes through. o Outdated furniture. Old towels. My friend went to sleep on sofa and we had no sheets for it in unit, but did have a pea stained mattress pad on it, so she slept on towels. Pillows were stained too. The next day we received clean pillows and sheets.

I booked this stay 4 months in advanced and signed a rental contract as soon as it was emailed in May. Got to the place on my reserved date but never received the check-in info which included the code to our room. Had to call their 800 number to get this info from them which they gave me over the phone after a 5 min hold. According to the property manager I didn't send them a signed rental agreement which confused me because I received a copy of the signed agreement back in May. The first 30 minutes of our stay pissed me off since I did everything in advance to avoid issues during our stay, but I guess nothing happens perfectly in the real world. After we got situated, we found ourselves forgetting the little inconvenience we had and proceeded to enjoy the place and the island.

Well located in Princeville, quiet with great view of ocean. Not an easy walk to the ocean down a steep, muddy trail and it's not safe to swim there anyway. We didn't use the pool or hot tub. 2 story. No direct sunlight as unit faces N. Lots of birds. Live rooster alarm clock worked reliably. Minor issues: No AC. cross breeze was nice. Wouldn't have used AC anyway. Parking can be challenging as many were empty handicapped spots. Dishwasher was hard to start (?instructions), toilet in master suite ran non stop. Overall, good value. Other family stayed at the Westin, 4-5 min drive away in Princeville.

This Princeville resort stay was comfortable for me and my friend. The North Shore is definitely the most beautiful part of the island, and the town of Hanalei is adorable. We liked the pool area for some times when we didn't feel like driving to the beach. And brunch at the 1 Hotel was splendid. The main bed is super comfy, but the pull out sofa not as much. The 2 bathrooms and washer/dryer were so useful. Definitely worth the price.

When we arrived we could not open the door. The key would not turn. It took us awhile to get in. The door is very sticky when trying to get in. We assumed there was AC but there wasn’t. Our assumption was based on check out instructions we received saying make sure to turn off AC when leaving. There was a nice breeze in the condo but AC would have been nice as it was very very warm during our stay!

We have stayed at over a half dozen VRBOs. This was the best yet! Well supplied kitchen. Great utensils, storage stuff, spices, appliances. Great layout, 2nd bathroom is a plus. Very courteous and helpful staff at The Cliffs. The Cliffs pool and jacuzzi seemed over-chlorinated, and upstairs neighbors a bit noisy, but that is not under owner's control. You will love dining on the ocean view lanai!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I hesitate not to give this property a 5 star rating but there are a couple things you should know:Location is amazing!! I will stay at the cliffs again but in this particular unit probably not. The tennis courts, pool, BBQ grills, bikes, and overall neighborhood were beautiful and well maintained. However, there is NO A/C and this unit is located on the 3rd floor which makes it even hotter. After a long day at the beach I wanted nothing more than to come home and cool off. Opening windows at night does help but not also enough. Also was slightly disappointed in a few of the amenities. As a family of 6 staying for 10 day I expected more than 2 laundry detergents before I had to start paying for my own. Also with 6 people there was not quite enough silverware.

The Cliffs is a great complex; the pool area is pleasant and there is a designated “adults only spa” in addition to another spa that kids are welcome to use. Monday nights there is a reception at Four O’Clock for guests in the library area at the corner entrance to the complex. Our unit was managed by Kauai Vacation Rentals but the on-site management also helps if you need something. Check-in and out is easy and the stay is relaxing.

Terrific, comfortable, beautiful, peaceful location. Well-equipped (though kitchen was not equipped with things like salt & pepper, cooking oil). It was really comfortable and hassle-free. The only thing I would say is I recall somewhere in the posting literature it listed a 6-minute walk to the beach. Really more accurate to say a 6-minute walk to the shoreline as beach access is not to be found near this property and required a drive or bicycle (available for free at the property).

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was more than happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: 3rd time staying at The Cliffs. First time in this particular condo. Nice condo. Washing machine either needs to be repaired or replaced as it makes a horrible grinding noise. Only saw one cockroach and one gecko in the unit, which is normal for the islands. Beautiful partial ocean view. Would book again.

We enjoyed our stay at this condo in Princeville! Beautifully decorated home and very clean. We loved having breakfast in the balcony while watching the ocean. We would love stay here again when we go back to Kauai.

Reception was kind and helpful. Room was spacious and comfortable. Had beach chairs, ice chests, drip coffee maker with starter local ground coffee pack, beach towels, tennis and pickle ball courts with borrow pickle ball paddles and balls, gym, free filtered water refills and more. So we and friends tried pickle ball for the first time learning from the web and had a great time. Location made it easy to go to the best beaches with stores and great eateries all easily within range. We'll be back.

This place has everything you need- great views, close to everything on the north shore, everything needed for a great beach day. The owners were so responsive and accommodating for us. This was by far our favored stay in Hawaii!

Our stay was amazing! The place was fantastic, clean, larger than we were expecting with ocean cliffs just steps away, great bed and two balconies. Great location and amenities — pool, hot tub, and free bike rentals to go to Hideaway Beach. 100% would come back next time I’m in Kauai.

Spent 10 days celebrating our 25th anniversary on the stunning island of Kauai. This condo was the perfect landing pad for our adventures & beach days. The cliffs are a peaceful & beautiful place to watch the sunset, there is a charming shopping center with grocery store nearby and it is a short drive to get to all the best beaches on the north shore, including Hanalei Bay. The 2 lanais, ac unit and washer/dryer were all appreciated. The ladies at the rental office were super responsive and helpful. Can’t wait to come back!

This was the third property that my family stayed at on our Hawaiian trip and it was our favorite. The location was great and the view from the lanai made us feel as though we were truly on vacation. If you are looking for a place to stay while visiting the north shore of Kauai my family would recommend this property.

My biggest regret is not staying at this location longer! I loved the area, beautiful surroundings! Very quiet location, many activities to do at property. The views were absolutely stunning! Many fun things to do not far from princeville, lots of good places to eat close by. The check in at the property was simple, the ladies at the reception desk were super helpful. The pool was so much fun, we spent time at the pool every evening and the ambiance was peaceful and relaxing. I loved the room, offered many accessories to use - chairs, sand toys, etc. plenty of towels very clean. Property owners quick to respond. I highly recommend staying here! I can’t wait to come back!

We were so happy with our stay at this property and unit! The beds were comfy (including the pull out couch which my mom slept great on). They also provided a lot of stuff which came to great use including board games, a small cooler, ice packs, beach chairs, and body boards. We were also very happy with the property and all that it offered. There were water refill stations, free bikes, tennis courts, grills, plus the most fantastic view off the cliffs. We will definitely be booking here again!

This condo was perfect for our trip. It was nice and clean and the air conditioner in the bedroom was so appreciated. The location was wonderful. The only downside to our trip was parking at beaches. Other condos offered free shuttle service and that would have been nice but overall we had an amazing experience.

Honestly this condo was perfect for our 5 day girls trip! 2 full bathrooms that were fully stocked, comfortable king size bed, fully stocked kitchen. We ate breakfast on the rear balcony each morning and the other balcony overlooks the pool area. They provided fans which was nice for during the day. Would 10/10 recommend.
