    Our spectacular condominium is located on Kauai’s incredible north shore in Kauai's premier complex, Puu Poa. Overlooking the Blue Pacific Ocean, it is just steps from the Luxurious Princeville Hotel and has been completely renovated. A short trail down the bluff brings you to secluded Hideaways Beach where you will experience some of the best snorkeling, diving, whale watching, and kayaking in Hawaii. Minutes away from the top-rated Makai Golf Course, this spectacular 2000 square foot, two bedroom, two bath unit has been totally remodeled. Everything is top of the line. Total privacy and incredible views from this THIRD floor unit are unsurpassed. The complex is built into the side of a hill, so the view from our 3rd floor unit is direct oceanfront and even the 2nd bedroom has spectacular views of mountains and waterfalls--not the parking lot or sidewalk where others can look in. Being built into the side of a hill means that the 3rd floor is also the easiest to access since there are no elevators. The condo is outfitted with every amenity including a grill on the lanai, a telescope for viewing the pods of whales and dolphins that play directly in front of the condo, and free high-speed Internet access. The living room is equipped with a high def 50" Smart TV, surround sound system, dvd and cd player. The master bedroom, furnished with a king-size bed and a smart TV, faces the ocean. It has a large, walk-in shower and Japanese soaking tub where you can sit and watch the waves. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed and an unbelievable view of the mountains and 1500 foot waterfalls. There is an inflatable mattress that can transform the solarium into an additional sleeping room available for your use. This beautifully landscaped complex also offers a heated pool, private tennis court and pickle ball. Optional Air Conditioning is always available to our guests. We have a state of the art, dedicated kw meter exclusively to measure guests' AIR CONDITIONING usage during your stay. The amount of AIR CONDITIONING used will be deducted from your security deposit. Come and breathe the fresh Kauai air, smell the tropical flowers, relax on secluded beaches, hike incredible rain forests to thousand foot waterfalls, experience the Na Pali Coast, or just sit back on the lanai and watch as whales teach their young to breach or pods of dolphins go spinning by. Incredible, Romantic and Tropical - it just doesn't get any better than this!

Princeville News and Events

Princeville Travel Guide - OwnerDirect.com: Princeville, a major 9,000 acre resort is situated about 28 miles north of Lihue. This town is located on a 200 foot volcanic plateau on Kauai's north shore, overlooking Hanalai Bay. Hawaii's most challenging golf course, the Prince, is located here. This 390 acre course sits on the Pacific Ocean, winding up and down hills, through jungles, along streams, and over deep ravines. Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed this course, as well as the Makai Course.

Because of the beautiful tropical backdrop, Jurassic Park, King Kong, Raiders of the Lost Ark, South Pacific, and other films were shot here and in the surrounding area. Just over a hundred years ago, this countryside was home to Kaui's oldest ranch established in 1853 by Scotsman R.C. Wyllie. The name was changed after a visit from royalty in 1860 in honor of the royal son, Prince Albert. There is tennis, golf, spa facilities, river and ocean kayaking and hiking all available to be enjoyed in this magnificent environment.
