Photos and Description of this Princeville holiday townhome

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.

What a find!

This a a great property with an awesome owner who communicates extremely well. We thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities including the pool, hot tub, and BBQ. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nicely decorated and very spacious condo in Princeville.

Incredibly Beautifull! All the comforts of home! You won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely AMAZING! Everything inside was very well maintained and incredibly beautiful! My family felt very much at home during our stay in Kauai. The owner stopped by after we arrived to say hi and gave us lots of great information like places to eat and visit. It was comforting to know that if we ran into any problems, help was only a quick phone call away. The nearby pool was simply gorgeous and less than minute's walk away. We loved everything about this home and can't wait to come back again! We HIGHLY recommend it! A+++++++

Amazing townhouse in Princeville.

  • 5 of 5

We cannot rave enough about our experience. The house comfortably accommodated 3 adults and 3 children. All the necessities were there. The house is impeccably decorated truly making you feel like you are at home. Location of the house was great. Close to quaint towns and nice beaches. For families with kids there's a play ground <1 mile away and Anini beach is ideal. Pool was a bit cold (probably from recent rain and hot tub a bit hot). I am already planning our return to this great vacation rental in Princeville.

The property is very well taken care of and clean and new.

  • 5 of 5

We were really glad we booked this unit. It was located in a great spot in Princeville with easy access to a lot of great beaches close by. We loved how close we were to Hanalei. It was easy to walk to a lot of different places so we didn't have to deal with over crowded parking. We loved using the beach cruisers to ride into town and get shave ice or something quick at the market. Lori had everything you would need in here home and could be used easily. We will definitely be booking here again.

Thanks again!

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5

Lori is very responsive and you can tell she takes great pride in providing the best overall experience for renters. The condo is very nice and well equipped. It's close to the pool and a short drive to all the north shore places one will one to visit. We rented in mid June and didn't need to use the air conditioning at all and it was very comfortable. A good option for sure.

Very Clean and inviting

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and our daughters (8 of us) stayed at Lori's condo for 8 days. Everything as described was accurate, clean and well-maintained. Lori made herself available if needed and even greeted us with a text when we arrived. I would recommend this condo to my friends and family. Queens bath was a short distance from the Condo but please take caution when going there, could be very dangerous and you WILL get muddy. Hanalei Bay was our favorite beach. To the left of the main entrance of the St Regis and the condo is Princeville shopping center. Many nice shops including a market "Foodland" that was clean and had very good prices. We stopped at Costco on our way in, but as you know there are always more items needed. Also further into Hanalei bay there is an organic food market called Harvest Hanalei Market with some wonderful choices including Eggs that are raised on Kauai and taste amazing!!! We did drive to the other side of the Island to Poipu beach and saw some beautiful Sea Turtles but the beaches on that side of the Island were more crowded. Last visit with my husband and girls we stayed at Poipu beach and it is warmer but the Princeville side of the Island is much more beautiful and lush and we enjoyed not having to use the AC. We visited Hanapepe but unfortunately picked the wrong night to go and missed the food trucks and art gallery night but did get to go to the farmers market. On our way to Lihue we stopped at Macy's to shop, of course with 8 women, hard to resist and then drove to an awesome burger place in Lihue called Kalapaki Beach Hut and enjoyed our burgers on the second floor open air seating with a view of the ocean. We then walked across the street to the Harbor shopping center for a piece of pie from "The Right Slice"!! It has the best pies ever that are made with a butter crust. They also have little bite size taster pies you can purchase. If you are a chocolate, coconut Macadamia nut lover this pie is a must plus the lilikoi Mango is also wonderful!! They are all good!!! Our last night at the Condo we went out for a nice dinner at Tahiti Nui, we enjoyed Macadamia crusted Ono, Pizza, salads & the rib eye steak. It was all very good and not too pricey!! There is nightly entertainment and we enjoyed some beautiful hawaiian music and a dancer. It is the place that is in the movie "The Descendants" but definitely a small restaurant. We really enjoyed the authenticity and friendly staff. Couldn't have been a better last night
