About the property

Attached Home - 3 Bedrooms + Den - 2.5 Baths - (Sleeps 8)

Nihilani is located in the Princeville Resort on the North Shore of Kauai, the beautiful 'garden island.' Construction of the plantation-style townhome complex was completed in 2006 making it one of the newest developments within the Princeville Resort community.

The two story attached home with 1,874 square feet of living area includes 3 bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen, 2 Twins), a den (trundle bed, 2 twins), 2 ½ baths and all the necessary amenities such as washer and dryer, wireless high-speed internet, free long distance telephone service to the US and Canada, TV and DVD player, stereo speakers for ipod connection, and beach gear (boogie boards, chairs, towels, umbrella).

Exquisitely decorated with granite counter tops, hardwood floors, ceiling fans throughout, a private 2-car garage and 3 spacious lanai with comfortable outdoor seating. This home is great for 2-3 couples or a large family.

Guests of Nihilani are welcome to enjoy the private resort style pool with a waterfall flowing from the Pool Hale above and the relaxing jacuzzi. Also available for guests at Nihilani is BBQ facilities with tables and chairs for eating at the pool area.

My home is located within walking distance of the award winning St. Regis Hotel, Hideaway's Beach and Queen's Bath (a unique ancient Hawaiian retreat on the North Shore). Within minutes drive you have access to over 23 North Shore beaches, two of the best golf courses on the Island, Makai Golf Club and Prince Golf Course (Golf Digest rated the Prince Golf Course as 'Hawaii's No. 1 Golf Course').

Once you venture outside of Princeville, you will discover the quaint town of Hanalei located just north of Princeville. You will drive across one lane bridges all too familiar on the North Shore of Kauai (bridge etiquette: 5 - 7 vehicles on one side cross together and then 5 - 7 vehicles on the other side cross) and through some of the largest taro fields in Hawaii with visible waterfalls on the green mountains beyond. Hanalei is a quaint town with unique shops and some of the best dining on the North Shore. Kilauea is another quaint town just south of Princeville. The Kilauea Point Lighthouse, built in 1913 was a navigational aid for commercial shipping between Hawai‘i and the Orient, Kilauea Point Lighthouse stands as a monument to Hawai‘i’s colorful past.

Perfect Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The North Shore Retreat was the perfect home base for our family as we played and rested on the beautiful north shore of Kauai. We came for our 40th anniversary celebration, along with our daughters, their husbands and our two toddler grandchildren. With three big bedrooms, we had room for all the adults, as well as babies, in their rented cribs.

The condo is comfortable, lovely, and very homey. Lori has it filled with interesting art that makes every room fun. And, the kitchen is well supplied with everything needed to feed a large group. There are two private verandas, with comfortable seating, so everyone has a quiet get away place to read or nap. We breakfasted on the back deck each morning, overlooking beautifully landscaped grounds. Be alert for the tame birds that come by to share your breakfast. Our toddlers loved the close proximity to the pool, and hot tub, where we usually started and ended our day. We spent most of our days lounging at the various Kauai beaches, making use of the beach towels, chairs and kiddie toys stashed in the garage. Lori was an attentive and conscientious hostess, who obviously loves her place and keeping guest happy. We loved our Kauai holiday!

Nicely decorated condo.

  • 4 of 5

Condo was as pictured and was clean. Pool and hot as close by. The landscaping was beautiful! Great location, close to shopping plaza, beaches and the town of Hanalei which we loved. We went in November and it rained the entire week. The waves were too big to swim or snorkel so we were very disappointed that we stayed on the north shore. I couldn't give this condo a five star because the pillows were old and had an odor. Also, the TV was Not very clear. We used the beach chairs, towels and cooker which was helpful. Rent your own snorkel equipment, the ones at the condo weren't in good shape. Broken straps. Lori was great to work with. Very responsive!

Owner's Response: Aloha Dawn, It was very unfortunate and unusual that the weather was so rainy during your vacation, however, we cannot predict or control the weather. As I mentioned in an email prior to your arrival, I do not supply snorkel gear for my guests as it is a personal item and I cannot provide enough sizes to accommodate all my guests. The snorkel gear that is in the garage was left by previous guests and I leave it in there just in case future guests would like to utilize it. Thank you for the information regarding the pillows, I will check them to make sure they are fresh and odor free. I have never had a guest complain about the pillows but I will be sure to take care of them. As far as an unclear picture on the TV, again, no one has ever mentioned it and you didn't mention it during your stay so I was unaware that there was an issue. I will be sure to check it out with the cable company. I hope you had a safe journey home. Mahalo, Lori

The property is exactly as described and pictured. Great area, quiet, close to Hanalai

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, clean, and had everything we needed to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Very spacious condo, pool right outside, and very quiet indoors. Beautiful lanai's, bikes to ride, and equipment to take to the beach (including sand toys)!

The host, Lori, was very communicative and pleasant. Would highly recommend her place. There were 5 adults and 1 toddler and we had plenty of space. Kid friendly as well.

Mahalo, Lori

Beautiful Princeville Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed home that is warm and comfortable in all respects and it is located in a good spot on the north end of the island. It is steps from the pool that serves the condo complex and a few minutes from a grocery store, shave ice and restaurants. In addition, it is within 10 minutes of Hanalei Bay and roughly 30 minutes from Ke'e Beach. We were completely satisfied and thought of is as much more than just a vacation rental.

Lori's place was perfect for our family of six plus a friend!

  • 5 of 5

When I first started searching for a place to rent, I was looking for a spacious, clean house to rent. Lori's reviews stood out to me. The house was everything she said and more! I also appreciated Lori sending me recommendations on places to eat and see before we even got to the island. She was easily reached via text anytime during our stay. The house was very clean and roomy with having 5 teenagers and 2 adults in the house. We will definitely stay at her house again when we go back to Princeville!
