Very close to great restaurants, scenic panoramas, and recreational activities.
Come for a few days, a week, a month. Whatever you need from your vacation, this recently remodeled, beautiful 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom condominium is the perfect base!
Prime Location: This charming vacation home sits in the beautiful Princeville Resort on the north shore of Kauai--a highly desirable vacation area. We are bordered on one side by emerald mountains with cascading waterfalls and on the other by the Pacific Ocean and incredible beaches, one of them the famous Anini Beach, which is just a ten-minute walk down a breathtaking trail through tropical forest and waterfalls.
Anini Beach, resembling the lagoons of Tahiti, is protected by a large outer reef, which makes for safe swimming and snorkeling. This natural exotic reef is teeming with colorful fish and the beach combing is unsurpassed.
Indulge yourself and your loved ones in paradise. While staying at this unit you will be in close proximity to the lush sea cliffs that tower over Kauai's picturesque Hanalei Bay, minutes from world famous Na Pali Coast, and within reach of Waimea Canyon--and many more sights and activities you won't want to miss.
Enjoy horseback rides to an 80-foot waterfall or a scenic ocean bluff. Soar over the lush valleys of a 2500-acre family-operated working cattle ranch on an 8-zip line course. Hike and kayak to hidden waterfalls. Marvel at the beauty of Hanalei Valley from the Lookout, just off Highway 56 and 0.5 miles away from our home. Whether blue skies arch above or tropical mists dance around the mountain tops, this breathtaking valley view is one to be remembered.
Visit lovely Hanalei town to wander through quaint shops and galleries. Crescent-shaped Hanalei Bay is a premier surfing spot in the winter. This North Shore jewel is also a playground the rest of the year for swimming and canoe racing.
Great golf in a magnificent setting: Take it from the master of Golf Course architecture--'Golf doesn't get much better than here at Princeville at Hanalei' (Robert Trent Jones, Jr.).
Princeville at Hanalei features 2 World-Class Championship Golf Courses: Prince Golf Course and Makai Golf Course, making up a total of 45-Holes designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., to enhance the natural habitat of Kauai’s North Shore while providing strategic variety for golfers of all skill levels. Year after year, top golf magazines rank the Makai and Prince Golf Courses among the country's best. The Makai Course consists of three separate nines - Ocean, Woods, and Lakes, each starting and ending at the clubhouse. All three provide the golfer, whether novice or professional, with challenge and variety. Both Prince and Makai Golf Courses are within the Princeville resort within walking distance of our vacation home.

Jana's townhome was the perfect place to call home for our time on Kauai. We were travelling with my toddler-aged son, so it was nice to have the two bedrooms. Apparently we were there during a heat wave, so the air conditioning in the bedrooms was great. The kitchen had everything we needed for eating in, and the walk into Princeville was only about 15 minutes when we wanted to eat out.
The path to the beach was not long, but was quite steep. We went there on day one, but drove to the beach after that. We also used the pool in the complex quite a bit - it was very close to the unit, and never crowded.
Jana was very easy to contact, and sent me all the information I needed for my stay well in advance. If you are looking for a quiet place on the North shore, I would definitely recommend Jana's place. Read more
Thank you for taking time to write this thoughtful review. I'm very pleased that my condo helped make your stay on the Garden Isle an enjoyable one--it's important to me that guests are happy with their accommodations and feel well taken care of. Central air would indeed feel great on those occasions when Kauai heats up, but it's not very common in island homes--electricity is expensive, and usually the strategically placed louver windows will help pull in breezes from the trade winds.
