About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Looking for a unique Hawaiian vacation experience? Look no further! Our lovely Villa overlooking Hanalei Bay has all the casual comfort and privacy of a stand alone home. Set adjacent to a tropical forest our Villa features expansive views of the lush local mountains and beautiful Hanalei Bay. The design of the Villa is light and open with cathedral ceilings throughout the upper level. Both floors have covered lanais that give the visitor the serene sense of being high up in a treehouse. Our tropical songbirds often will join you should you choose to dine alfresco out on the upper lanai. The three bedrooms on the lower level comfortably sleep five adults. Upstairs there is a modern, fully equipped kitchen and dining area. The living room has cable TV, DVD, stereo, and wireless internet service. All rooms have ceiling fans for your comfort. A reserved parking space is also provided.

The Villa is walking distance to three beaches and the fine dining of the luxurious St. Regis Resort. From the upper lanai you can view the scenic fifth green of the 27 hole Makai Golf course. The world famous Prince Golf Club is a short drive away. We have tennis nearby as well. At the entrance to the Princeville community, one and a half miles from the Villa, there is a full service shopping center with a large grocery store, specialty shops, many restaurants, banks, gas station, and Post Office. In fact the Villa is centrally located on Kauai's North Shore to view all the attractions, such as: Napali Coast, Kalalau trail, the town of Hanalei, world famous Tunnels beach, the Kilauea Lighthouse and bird sanctuary, and so on.

Kauai is the stuff of which dreams are made, the very definition of tropical paradise- lush and green, slow and easy. If you are looking for a private, tropical retreat in a lush Hawaiian setting our Villa will not disappoint.

Felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cal's villa. The villa is well positioned, right across the street from the trail to Hideaways Beach and steps from the entrance to the St. Regis. Hanalei is an easy 10-minute drive. The villa is tucked away from the road which eliminates road noise. Even though you are close to other villas, we were never disturbed by the neighbors. However, the chickens are another story. They are really stupid and cock-a-doodle from approximately 4am-9pm, so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper! As other reviews have mentioned, the mattresses are quite firm.

The kitchen was well stocked and large. The villa was very clean. It felt like home! We made good use of the beach chairs and the cooler. There were even some snorkel fins that my husband was able to use.

Guests should be prepared for stairs. You need to take a flight of stairs down from the parking lot to the lower entrance of the villa, and another flight up if you want to enter through the "front door." The view off of the lanai is breathtaking. We often caught views of double rainbows over the mountains while drinking our morning coffee. We had four adults staying in the condo and never felt too crowded.

Being used to a/c and sleeping in colder conditions, we were a little concerned about the lack thereof in the villa, but the trade winds kept it pretty temperate, especially upstairs in the kitchen and living area. We slept fine, but people that tend to run warm will be warm. A couple extra box fans would be a nice addition for the bedrooms.

We made great memories in Kauai. I would definitely stay in this condo again and strongly recommend that you stay there, too!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Erin: Glad to hear you had a good time on our island. The chickens are an island wide nuisance and we await the day that they adjust their alarm clocks to a more reasonable schedule! Hope to see you again on our island. Cal

Clean, well appointed and located

  • 4 of 5

This condo checks the boxes for a simple convenient place to spend your vacation.

We found it to be basically exactly as described, it was very clean and in good condition. The location is convenient for immediate access to Hideaways and Hanalei Bay, we are surfers and enjoyed being able to walk to two spots from the house. Though the walk down to the St Regis beach is a lot of stairs! The view from the Lanai is also lovely.

We cooked a lot and found we had what was needed in the kitchen (though as a minor note to Cal: the peeler desperately needs to be replaced and another good chefs knife would be great). Many of the basic condiments were available in the kitchen.

We had an issue with the key when we arrived and Cal was responsive and got the problem fixed immediately.

The one criticism I might have is that the place is a bit sterile feeling, but that is true for much of Princeville!

Overall it made for a good vacation.

Beautiful View makes up for a lot!

  • 3 of 5

Cal's villa was great in so many ways! He was easy to work with, and provided helpful tips. The villa had plenty of room for our party of 4, and the stocked kitchen and washer/dryer were invaluable. The living room furniture was comfortable, and it was nice to have a table, chairs, and grill on the lanai. Besides some mildew smell in the master bath, the home was pleasantly odorless...a major plus for me.

The best thing about this place is the location. The back lanai looks out onto a beautiful view of the mountains and greenery. We loved watching the birds, too. Princeville is a great place to stay...we stayed in the area our entire trip and found plenty to do/see. Loved the Hideaway pizza restaurant, Hideaway beach, and Tunnels Beach especially.

The reason I couldn't give this place 5 stars is this: the beds and pillows were hard and uncomfortable...none of us got much sleep. To be fair, the bedspreads, looked clean, and the sheets were high quality, though stained a bit. There is no a/c (I know it is rare to find in Kauai) and a week just wasn't long enough to acclimate to the heat. It was probably 80 degrees inside much of the time even with the windows open. (The wonderful trade winds just weren't cutting it). With all the windows open all night, there was no rest from the darling roosters who love to crow at all hours. On the plus, side, it was incredibly quiet in regards to people noise. We hardly ever heard neighbors.

I was so sad about how dirty the place was. Some things were cleaned beautifully, like the sliding glass doors onto the lanai, and the table and countertops. The walls, baseboards, cupboards, window screens, and floors desperately needed to be cleaned, though, and there was not a single unstained towel or washcloth in the bathrooms. I was so embarrassed because we had my mother and father-in-law on this trip with us. Cal, I would recommend that the current towels be available for guests to use for wiping wet feet or beach equipment, and provide new towels for bathing. It appears people have been using your nice white towels for mopping up the floor or something.

I don't regret booking this villa. It really was the best view we have ever had that wasn't on the ocean. With a little tlc, this place could be 5 stars easily. Thank you, Cal, for letting us stay. I hope I haven't been too blunt. I know you aren't nearby to see the conditions, so I really do just want to make sure you are aware

Owner's Response: Aloha Anonymous: Thank you for submitting your review. I am pleased you enjoyed your visit to our island and found plenty of things to do while enjoying our Villa's million dollar view. Regarding your comment about our pillows and mattress being too hard, we have learned through the years that most guests prefer a reasonably firm mattress over a soft or lumpy one. Our three bedroom Villa offers three different mattresses should one mattress fail to please a guest. Our very reliable (95% + most of the time) pleasant trade winds explain why most rental homes in the area don't feature a/c. The trade winds coming out of the Northeast, combined with the Villa's 360 degree ventilation, provide natural comfort nearly year round. Each bedroom and the living room have large ceiling fans to supplement mother nature. Unfortunately your stay corresponded with one of those rare times when our trade winds petered out. All visitors should remember that Hawaii offers a warm tropical climate kept pleasant by mother nature. From your comment it appears that our bath towels may have been misused prior to your visit. Had I been aware earlier of this I could have offered our second set of linens to you. I have purchased new bath linens to replace the existing linen set that had been misused. Hopefully this addresses your concern. Mahalo Cal

Was as advertised, better than planned

  • 5 of 5

From the moment Cal called me I knew we'd be renting his villa. Super easy to work with, pricing is all very straight forward, directions on to the condo and how to get in very thought out, now for the good stuff:

As you may or may not know, getting to Princeville from Lihue is very easy, that is if it isn't rush hour in Kapa'a, then you just have to remind yourself you're on an island. Anyhow, as soon as we pulled into the parking lot we knew we made the right decision. It literally is the last property before the St. Regis. Thankfully it wasn't too warm when we arrived and the housekeepers opened up all the windows for us. As soon as you open the front door, yep, there's your view of Hanalei Bay, immediate relaxation overcame us.

The kitchen is fully appointed, plenty of plates, silverware, glasses etc. Flat panel TV in the living room, just know this is the only TV in the villa. Go downstairs to 2 rooms, decent size and very clean, master is bigger, huge closet and again very clean. Tons of clean linens, beach towels, 2 body boards, chairs etc. As for not having any TV's downstairs, that's completely alright, you're not there to watch TV. The view from the lanai was awesome. As mentioned, Hanalei Bay, then while we were there we had a few rainy days, from our view we could see all the waterfalls streaming down the mountain, that was something we'd never seen when we stayed elsewhere. As for the overall condition of the villa, it's very nice. The furniture is a bit outdated but it really doesn't matter, but if you do get rained in, no worries, everything is comfortable.

A few tips for when you stay here, the couch is a pull out couch, if the wifi goes down, gently push the patch cord a few millimeters back into the router, bring soap for the shower and an extra roll of paper towels, everything else is provided besides your food and libation. There is a walkway down to the St. Regis pool, you can take that or go through the hotel. If you go to Hideaway Pizza or the pool bar at the Regis and you see a really nice excitable bartender with her hair pulled up, say hi, she's really nice and knows how to pour a drink. One tip that Cal will tell you too, take your luggage in from the bottom floor, much easier. If this place is open, don't hesitate to book it, you won't be disappointed.

wonderful location and comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This condo is well-located next to the luxurious St. Regis Princeville and just across the street (and up a very steep climb) from Hideaways Beach, a most glorious beach that we mostly had to ourselves. The view from the main lanai off the living area was lovely: Hanalei Bay and the Napali Coast in the distance. Bedrooms were comfortable. Ceiling fans provided ample cooling so that lack of air conditioning was never an issue. The kitchen was adequately outfitted and easy to use (we even prepared Thanksgiving dinner there). And the owners were delightfully easy to work with. The only (minor) criticism is that the air conditioning units from the St. Regis are close to this condo, creating some white noise that was annoying to some among us (although the rest of us noticed it only when it was pointed out by the persnickety members of the family). We had a completely fabulous vacation!

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at our fabulous Villa. The world famous Hideaways Beach adjacent to the Villa is beautiful and kid friendly. Next time you go to the beach take the St. Regis Resort elevators back up from the beach to avoid the hill climb. Being a single family home our Villa avoids the noise and disturbance of neighbors on the other side of the wall typically found in a condo apartment.
