I am an accountant and my wife Cindy is a high school teacher. We have three wonderful children: Ryan, Sarah, and Sean. We thoroughly enjoy Kauai and all the outdoor activities it offers: hiking, snorkeling, biking, surfing and more! We reside in Northern California. It is our hope that our condo brings you a bit of the tranquility and adventure that we've found in Kauai. (Picture is at the Waimea Canyon lookout-great hiking in Waimea and Koke'e State Parks).
We had never been to Hawaii until we came to Kauai for a family vacation in 2007. We fell in love with Kauai, especially the spectacular North Shore (it has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth). The lush, green mountains with waterfalls are awe-inspiring (you never get tired of looking at them). We day dreamed about owning a place here, but never could have qualified to purchase anything. With the recent real-estate decline, we were able to qualify, and our dream became a reality. Our hope is to spend a few months a year here in the future if we're ever able to retire.We feel blessed to have found what we feel was 'the best deal in Princeville' when we purchased our Ali'i Kai II condo. With ocean views from the lanai side and mountain views from the other side, our jaws dropped when we walked into the unit and looked out at the mountain/jungle through the dining room window. There was not a better view in the area for three times the cost. We loved the quiet location of the complex and the fact that the grounds and buildings were immaculate. Since the inside of most of the units are old and outdated, we decided to remodel the entire condo as opposed to just putting in new flooring and paint like most people do. We wanted to provide a condo that was fresh and new, consistent with a high-end rental, but warm, comfortable and inviting at the same time. Hopefully you'll agree that we accomplished our goal.
