Nihilani at Princeville
Day Not Available
Happy Traveler from Kailua, HI on 12/06/2013 said:
Beautiful townhouse with plenty of space for our family of 4, and absolutely every amenity you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable. Beach toys in the garage and a basket of toys in the house gave my young girls (ages 2 1/2 and 4) many hours of entertainment. Would definitely stay here again on a return trip. The complex is extremely quiet and relatively empty. The pool was beautiful, but a touch on the chilly side.

Aloha Condos provided great customer service. They were available any time during the week if we needed them. Phone numbers and condo information were located in easy to find and obvious locations. The location of the condo was perfect for us. Close to grocery, Hanalei and even Hanakapiai Beach. The condo itself was modern, clean and very comfortable. The owner has taken pride in his condo and it shows. I highly recommend this condo and hope to use it again as soon as we can. The pool and BBQ area are very nice and provide a great place to relax close to the condo. If you have trouble negotiating stairs this is probably not the place for you. All 3 bedrooms are upstairs. The photos on the web are a little older and don't reflect some of the landscape that has matured over a few years.
Wonderful and fabulous
Trish Terry from Orem on 03/19/2013 said:
The place was beautiful and in the most wonderful location on the island. We loved having the in-house laundry, beautiful coconut flooring and a very generous welcome gift upon arrival. The pool was so lovely with beautiful landscaping around it. Everything in the kitchen, which was very well stalked, was of high quality. The master bedroom was perfect. We could not have asked for a better experience, except when my son picked a small leaf off of a plant growing in the yard, a lady from the condo next door literally screamed at him telling him she would call the owners of the place and get us kicked out. When he and I apologized she screamed at me. That kinda put a damper on the aloha spirit. However, that was a small incident compared to the wonderful stay we were able to have on account of aloha Condos. Thank you very much for accommodating us. It was our the best trip to Hawaii yet! Thanks, Mike and Trish Terry
Nihilani condos are clean spacious and quiet!

If you like golf, close market, nice pathways to job, drink at the St. Regis, pool tanning and a good hot jacuzzi at the end of the day this is the place.
Great all the way
enrique from Aarhus, denmark on 10/02/2012 said:
Me and my family spent 4 great days in this property and stunned us every single day of it. The details, the conditions, the luxury and the flawless attention by the administrator are worth every single cent. Great cooking!!
Townhome 3a was much nicer than the pics we saw. It is beautifu
Judy P. from Lake Mohawk, Ohio on 09/30/2012 said:
Townhome 3a was wonderful. Large rooms, beautifully decorated. We really enjoyed staying there. It is close to everywhere we wanted to go. Nice having a garage, too. Very clean and neat. Everything we needed was there. Would def. stay there again and also recommend to friends.
Lovely Vacation in Princeville
Great time at the Nihilani from Sierra Madre on 10/12/2011 said:
This year the family and I decided to visit the island of Kauai. I found this rental online. I was impressed with all of the positive reviews. The price was right and it was in a desirable area (Princeville). The complex is very close to Hanalei, which offers a great variety of restaurants and shops. The grocery store is also very close. Upon opening the front door of our unit we were very pleased. The unit was clean and well kept. Plenty of space for the kids. It felt like we were home. There were Hawaiian goodies on the kitchen island left for us (nice touch). The unit has everything a family needs to feel at home. Fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, comfortable furniture, cable tv, and air conditioning. The garage even has beach chairs, beach mats and kids toys. Only a few minor things to consider. The bbq is out at the pool. We grilled a few times and had to bring our food back to the unit. The pool closes at 9pm and the HOa is strict about getting everyone out on time. Overall we had an excellent stay and hope to return very soon. I would highly recommend the Nihilani, unit 3a.
Robert Hryniewich from Aurora, CO on 09/29/2011 said:
I have to say the unit was very nice on the inside but the rest of the complex was terrible. Parking is horrible, location of the unit was bad as we heard traffic noise until 2am every morning. The pool was suppose to be heated but it wasn't. The pool was so cold we actually had to use a pool in a different complex. We had the management jump down our throats regarding a car being parked in Vistor parking in front of the unit. He was so rude to my niece that nobody needs to be treated this way especially a vistor to the island. Overall Unit a+ Complex and Management F. After reading reviews from other people that have stayed in this complex they also have had siimilar run ins with your onside management. I seem to think this complex is mainly residents not majority rentals. I wouldn't stay in this complex again just due to the way we were treated.
Dear Guest, I am delighted you liked the unit and gave it an A+. I am also very sorry you had a difficult time with the onsite management. About 30% of the units at Nihilani are occupied by year-round residents, and we have appealed to the management company to be more lenient with the rules as the majority of people there are on vacation. I agree the parking is difficult at Nihilani, but each unit does come with a 2 car garage, so for the majority of guests parking is never an issue. The pool at Nihilani is not heated, and Iâm not sure where that might have been advertized online. I hope you will reconsider and stay with us again. Nihilani is one of the few new developments with central a/c and has a beautiful pool and BBQ area complete with restrooms and shaded areas. It is a great place for couples and families alike.
Cathy from El Paso, TX on 06/27/2011 said:
We loved the condo it was equipped with everything you could need from snorkel gear,towels,boogie boards,etc. It was the highlight of the trip. The decor was amazing and all the finest upgrades.My husband and I found privacy on our own terrace. Even though their was ac we never used it. We had a wonderful view. Pool was great barbecued there nightly. It was such a nice and comfortable condo my family didn't want to go out. Loved our stay!!!
Absolutely Incredible!! We can't wait for our next trip back!!
Dionne from Santa Rosa, California on 06/17/2011 said:
It was a wonderful condo in a wonderful area, we loved our stay. We traveled with family which included an 18 month old so we were very pleased to find childrens toys, a stroller, and a pack and play (Crib). Our only suggestion would be to purchase/bring a baby gate for the stairs.
Home away From Home
Two Couples Traveling with a Toddler from Georgetown, KY on 05/04/2011 said:
This was our second stay at Nihilani at Princeville and it is just so easy to feel at home there. It takes no time to get settled, and we defintely didn't want to leave. It is by far the most well appointed vacation rental we've ever stayed in. This year we invited some friends to come out and they brought their 20 month old- the condo was perfect for him. The pack'n play, highchair, even baby utensils were put to good use. Everything we needed was readily available. We also appreciate how clean it is. You can truly unplug and relax.
Great condo for kids and family
Jeremy from San Luis Obispo CA on 04/17/2011 said:
We had a great stay at this condo. The place itself was large enough to accomodate 6 of us. Kristen at aloha Condos was great... very responsive and really cared about us a and making sure we had a great stay.
Great House to stay with family
Sue & Mike from Newton, Iowa on 01/26/2011 said:
Great location, enjoyed beach chairs and toys. Easy driving distance to beach to soak up the sun. Kitchen well stocked with dishes. Enjoyed the town house with our adult children. Great place.
Great Value, Lots of Fun
mike from Oahu on 10/15/2010 said:
Our family and friends had a wonderful time. The Condos were beautiful and the kids loved the pool and BBQ. We can't wait to come back!
A very happy Camper from Central California on 09/14/2010 said:
Most of the times pictures are a lot nicer than the actual thing when it comes to staying at a hotel or vacation rental, but this town-home exceeded our expectations. For 6 adults there was more than enough room to relax independently or gather in a common area. The entire home was very tastefully decorated and the beds were all very comfortable. The home comes complete with everything you could possibly think of to make your stay one to remember. Boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, and so much more. The residence it self is in a very nice area, and in our opinion one it looked the nicest from the outside. Kristen was wonderful to work with by e-mail and equally as helpful when we called to ask about a trip we wanted to make. The only thing is that Princeville its self is at the north of the island so we spent a lot of time going one direction because we wanted to see things all over the island and you cant go very far to the west before the road ends. Otherwise i'm pretty sure we had the best deal in all of Princeville!
Great townhome on Kauai
Smith from Dallas, Texas on 07/13/2010 said:
Nihilani 3a was a great townhome for our family. The 2 story layout was fantastic! The third bedroom with twin beds was great for our teens. The kitchen was beautiful and well stocked. I appreciated the full size washer and dryer. We thought everything and everyone we worked with in the rental was wonderful. These items truly not bother us, but if you are looking for a few minor improvements...sheets on master bed were a bit large and slid some, sofa could stand to be cleaned, and slightly larger wastebaskets in the bathrooms would be helpful. It was wonderful with an excellent location to many activities on the island. Thank you!
Stephanie S from Seattle, WA on 03/24/2010 said:
Beautiful condo with all of the amenities of home! We really enjoyed our stay and were given prompt attention when needed and had questions. We would highly recommend staying at Nihilani Princeville 3A for an enjoyable home away from home.
Pretty much perfect
karaokesuperstars from chicago, illinois USA on 08/23/2009 said:
I am very reluctant to write this review. I feel like this place is a hidden gem, and don't want anyone else to find out about it so that I can rent it again for our next visit to Kauai :) The townhouse is large, clean, very nicely decorated, comfortable and well-stocked. The beds are comfortable, and the AC works well. Kristen at alohacondos pretty much thinks of everything you could need. Speaking of Kristen, the manager, she was very easy to work with, easy to get a hold of, and very accomodating. The townhouse community is in a good location. Close to all the beautiful north shore sights and beaches, without being TOO far north. It IS a bit of a drive to get down to the south shore and kapaa/lihue etc, but you get used to the driving. The grounds of the community are very pretty. The pool was a great spot to hang out when we couldn't swim in the river run-off water after huge rains ("brownwater"). The only small negative of this rental that I can think of is that a couple of the rooms are a little dark (family/living room and master bedroom). I think it's because the bulbs are low-watt florescents, and I can understand the desire to conserve energy and keep electricity costs down. Other than that, the place is perfect and I would definitely stay here again!
Dr. neal from Scottsdale AZ on 08/12/2009 said:
Very nice townhome and the price was right.Princeville is beautiful,would go back there in a second.
DrSnow from Millbrae, CA on 07/28/2009 said:
Kristen was super easy to work with. It made the trip that much better. First class service. I needed a late check-out and she made that work without a hitch. The home was beautiful, clean, and well furnished. It had all the amenities you'd want. The bed in the master bedroom was incredibly comfortable. Better than my bed at home. The garage was stocked full of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and even a skimboard. Honestly couldn't ask for more. Even the neighbor was awesome. Some of you might be stoked to find out who it is. Location was great. Nice and quiet, the supermarket is close, Hanalei was right down the road. Will definitely stay here again without hesitation. Nothing that I didn't like about the house. The only inconvenience was the garage remote having to be pressed about a dozen times before it actually opened or closed. Highly recommend this place if you are looking for a relaxing vacation with nothing to ever have to worry about.
Gail from Mission Viejo, Califronia on 06/04/2009 said:
My husband and I spent a glorious vacation week in this very beautiful townhome. It is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. We had everything we needed and more. It is very well maintained and very clean. It's a great place to take a walk. When the St. Regis opens in the fall 2009, it will be fun to walk there for a drink or meal. We loved the town of Hanalei...enjoyed many restaurants, a farmer's market and a Slack Key guitar concert at the community center. We loved the one lane bridges and the relaxed atmosphere of the north shore.
Joy from Kennewick, Washington on 04/06/2009 said:
This was a beautiful Condo and had so much room. We stayed there with our daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter, grandson and son. Our grandson was a year old and they accomodated us with a bed for him. The kitchen was great and just begged to be cooked in. The grounds were fantastic. We enjoyed the pool area and enjoyed meeting the individuals who lived there year around and worked on the Island. We will go back to this location if we are able to make it to Kauai.
Awesome Home in Princeville
michelemcgruther from New Jersey on 04/02/2009 said:
Our stay with Aloha Condos at Nihilani 3a were the pinnacle of our 1 week stay in Kauai. We walked in to a welcome basket, and had at available to us high end utensils, modern and clean accomodations, plush towels and beach towels, an awesome master bath with jacuzzi tub and separate shower, toys, games, baby gear, beach gear -- even laundry soap! everything was thought of. It was like staying in a high end hotel, vs. a For Rent by Owner property. For a fraction of the cost we had 6 adults and one child stay comfortably! We enjoyed watching the rooster and his family of hens every morning, and making dinner for ourselves in the evening. The location is in a great location in Princeville, just a short drive from the Princeville shopping area, beautiful beaches and hiking trails, and, in the opposite direction, the Lighthouse. The condos are quiet, walkable, and I believe the newest development as of 2008 in Princeville. There is a small, private pool a short walk from the unit; my only wish is that the grill was not away from the property. We'll definitely be back again!
Ronnie O from Seaford, Virginia on 11/11/2013 said:
We just returned from 3 wonderful weeks in Hawaii. Our home the second week of our stay was Nihilani at Princeville 11C. We sent many days researching various options throughout Kauai and made our final decision based on the reviews of Nihilani and its townhomes. 11C has everything someone could ask for in a vacation rental and is by far the best we have encountered in all our travels. The layout is great with 2 laniâs (we spent many hours on the one facing the waterfall) 3 huge bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds and private bath, a kitchen a chef would appreciate, 2 car garage with beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers and even 4 bicycles. The home is located across the street from the complex pool and hot tube which we used several times during our stay. Princeville is located to many beautiful beaches and attractions. Our 2 favorites were Hanalei Beach (South Pacific filmed here) and anini Beach Park (very calm and clear as a result of an off shore reef). Kristen and Graeme were both very helpful with getting us access to the bicycles and any questions we had during our stay and we thank them both. You canât go wrong staying here. We normally head to Florida during the winter, but are now considering this place as a better choice
Spacious, luxurious condo
Joyce from Seattle on 10/21/2013 said:
This condo had everything we could ask for. Plenty of room for 2 families, incredibly-stocked kitchen, nice quality towels (both bath and pool), lots of toys and gear for the beach - we came expecting to have to buy a few things for our toddlers beach outings but they had so much fun with what came with the condo. The location was perfect for daily trips to Hanalei and all the north shore highlights. We would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again. The property managers were responsive and reasonable and we couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you!!
First Time on Kaui from Dallas, Texas on 08/07/2013 said:
This condo is incredible. We felt like we were at home from the minute we walked in. The decor was beautiful, clean and very well maintained. It was fully equipped and had anything you would need for a great vacation. We went to the beach almost every day and had beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, and toys to use. It could not be in a more perfect location, close to a grocery store and all the fantastic activities of Hanalei Bay and the North Shore. The views were amazing. The front lani had a view of the ocean in the distance and a waterfall right across the street. The back lani was a beautiful view of the mountains. The management was very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this condo.
Home away from home!
Gail & Steve from Pleasant Hill, CA on 05/01/2013 said:
This is a great place to relax and unwind from busy work schedules. Our week in Kauai was just "what the doctor ordered"! Great gourmet kitchen ...who needs to go to pricy restaurants! Close to excellent golf...Makai Course at Princeville and exceptional beaches and snorkeling...Anini Beach our favorite!
Our dream rental
The Hill's from South Jordan, UT on 04/25/2013 said:
Imagine having the worst flight ever and then walking into the most incredible vacation rental ever. The Nihilani 11c made us feel like we were home. This is the most amazing vacation rental we have ever stayed in. From the fully equipped kitchen having everything you could need and more, to the assortment of beach gear. All you need to do is relax. Our kids absolutely loved eating breakfast and dinners on the lanai, taking walks around the property at night and jogging to the beach in the mornings. We could not have asked for anything more. We have already recommended this rental to our close friends and can't wait for our next visit.
Great value! Fantastic accommodation!
James from Dublin, CA on 02/21/2013 said:
Perfect location, perfect condo, perfect vacation. I cant believe we got so lucky! The pool and hot tub were awesome to relax in after an exhausting day of galavanting. Everything was fantastic! We will definitely be coming back! Best value I've ever seen in a vacation home.
rob from Mililani on 10/14/2012 said:
What a nice place to stay. Everything you could need to have an beautiful stay on Kauai. The town home exceeded our expectations when we go back to the island i will rent this property again.
Best Condo in Hawaii
REEF_Surfer_8 from Ft Walton Beach FL on 08/23/2012 said:
Beautifully furnished, high quality amenities, and too many extras to list. Three bedrooms and three baths, this condo comes with everything you need for a perfect vacation: dishes/glassware for 20+, spices, bicycles, Nexxus hair products, boogie boards, beach towels and chairs - you name it, it's here. Don't go to the supermarket until you've checked out the food supply in the condo; you'll be amazed at what you'll find. The condo cost ~$800K when it was built five years ago, but thanks to the weak economy (every grey cloud has a silver lining), you can rent it for less than a hotel room. This was our 4th condo stay on Kaua'i and 12th in Hawai'i, and this unit was hands down the best.
Beautiful, amazing, and comfortable condo
The Garcia's from Sacramento, Ca on 06/06/2012 said:
This was our first trip to Kauai and I have to say if we are lucky enough to take another trip and this condo is available we will definitely stay here again. The floorplan is great, very spacious and the furnishings are top notch. The beds were extremely comfy and every possible item you would need was provided from cooking utensils to beach gear. The condo was very clean and we enjoyed sitting on the Lanai and admiring the gorgeous views. I would definitely recommend this condo to everyone, it is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable.
Your home away from home in paridise
aloha from Princeville on 06/03/2012 said:
This unit has everything you could possibly need during your stay. The kitchen is fully equiped, great cookwear, china and even margarita glasses:) It is decorated with lovely island style furnature and appointed with lovely artwork throughout. We throughuly enjoyed or stay and found the unit very comfortable. The Nihilani units are one of the newest condos on the north shore with several upgrades such as granite countertops. This Unit has 3 full bedrooms and baths, with a desk area to get caught up with business while away.
This place has everything.
Kelvin & Marilyn from Halifax,Nova Scotia on 03/21/2012 said:
We stayed here with two other couples and had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the well equipped kitchen as we prepared most of our meals after going to the local Costco. This home is beautiful and comfortable. It even had beach chairs,boogie boards and a large cooler bag so we had picnic lunches at the beach. It was awesome. We will stay here again.
Dan from Danville, Ca on 01/09/2012 said:
The condo unit was great. The dÃ©cor was wonderful. The kitchen was extremely well furnished. We appreciated all the beach equipment (chairs, umbrella, boogie boards). The Pool/Hot-tub/BBQ area were both nearby and beautiful. There were 6 people in our party and there was plenty of room. I can't wait to return.
Super comfortable and luxurious!
Chris Buckingham from Grass Valley, CA on 11/28/2011 said:
This is an amazing condo. It has 3 beds, 3 baths and plenty of space. It is immaculately furnished and beautifully appointed. It is really quiet and the lanai overlooks a soothing fountain. The beds are amazingly comfortable and the condo owners have truly thought of everything. The kitchen is stocked with everything imaginable, and things you would not expect are provided. For instance, four bicycles and helmets, childrens' beach toys, folding chairs, etc. I highly recommend it and would rent it again in a heartbeat!
amipatel from Katy, TX on 10/27/2011 said:
My friends and I recently visited Kauai for a wedding. Nihilani was an excelent choice for housing! It was extremely spacious and all the amenities you could imagine. I've never rented from a place that supplied so much stuff...it was like our own homes. The views of the surrounding areas were amazing. We could have stayed at the condo all weekend. Highly recommend this place for family and really any kind of group vacationing together.
Travis, CA from Thousand Oaks, CA on 02/22/2011 said:
Nihilani 11C is a very nice condo. Extremely well equipped with top notch furnishings and kitchen accessaries. Our family was very comfortable here, and the high chair + pack & play came in very handy. The location is great, and the pool area is very nice. We will be back!
Great Comfort in a 3 bedroom townhouse
C Hsu from Irvine, CA on 01/07/2011 said:
The stay was wonderful, everyone enjoyed it as the house is in excellent condition. Fully stock with supplies and comfort in every room. Our only wish is if there is more TV in the house. In the entire home, only one small TV in the living room.
The most perfect home away from home.
kiki from nyc on 09/05/2010 said:
I was amazed by the quality of everything in the house- from the beautiful decorations, furniture and bedding, to the appliances and utensils in the kitchen- the owners spared no expense in stocking the place so that you had anything and everything you could possibly need or want. I was very impressed with all the extras, like high quality knives and cookware, a full spice cabinet, kitchen appliances, boogie boards and sand toys, guidebooks and dvds. It felt like the owners must have lived there themselves bec. they thought of everything and didn't skim on buying cheap kitchen stuff bec it was a rental. The island styled decor was so tasteful and home-y, down to every last detail; it felt like you were living in your own island luxury dream home. Hawaiian style was authentic and upscale, staying true to an island theme without being cheesy or touristy.
Anita from Alberta, Canada on 06/02/2010 said:
This unit was wonderful. We've stayed in a lot of rental and time share units and this condo was the best equipped of any we've come across. It had everything we needed in the kitchen and more, the linens were high quality, the things we needed for the beach -- chairs, boogie boards, beach bags, towels -- were all there, the TV and other electronics were high end (including a blue ray DVD and sound surround system), and the owners had even provided a great selection of new Dvd's for both families and kids, as well as island guide books. It was just fabulously comfortable for the six of us (four adults, two kids) and made a great home base and place to relax after a day in the sun. The only negative was a bit of traffic noise from the road because the unit is on the outside of the development. But this really only affected the master bedroom and everything else was so great we didn't mind the noise. We would definitely stay here again!
Bechtol Family from Florence KY on 08/14/2013 said:
We love Hawaii... and this townhome made it even more perfect than we could ever image. Everything is so well thought out in the condo and the service was outstanding. I love to cook breakfast and snacks to take to the beach. The kitchen had everything I needed. Jennifer was always quick to respond with any concern. Barbara was a dream to work with. We did not want to leave.
Beautiful condo in a beautiful area
Curtis from CALGARY on 07/22/2013 said:
We enjoyed the condo and the location very much! The condo is located in good proximity to the Na Pali coast, Hanalei Bay, and good beaches in either direction. It is a quick walk to the watch the sunset nearby and the golf courses around the area look fantastic. I really enjoyed the nearby walking and running trails - easy to run to the beach! The condo is beautiful with high end appliances, granite countertops, air conditioning, washer/dryer and spacious rooms - making for an extremely pleasant stay. I would definitely return!
Couldn't ask for More
David P. from Austin, TX on 05/27/2013 said:
We loved the condo and didn't want to leave. We cooked frequently and the kitchen had everything that we could have wanted. Kauai is a special place and this was the perfect place to call home for a few nights.
Great condo, good price
Phil from Santa Fe, NM on 03/07/2013 said:
We enjoyed are stay in 19a, Felt like a home, good. Pool & Spa
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay in Kauai.
Jill from Reno NV on 01/02/2013 said:
We were very pleased with the townhome in Princeville. It all was comfortable except for the lack of hot water until we called the onsite manager. It improved immediately. The circulator needed to be plugged in. We also would have enjoyed being able to bbq on our patio, but understand the regulations. We really appreciated the air condtioning as we could lower the inside humidity as we are not used to it. There is very low humidity here in Nevada. Your townhome was very well equipped. We thank you for your kind hospitality. Jill
As promised, more amenities than I could think of.
Lisa from San Jose, CA on 02/19/2012 said:
Lovely place. Came with my family for 5 days. Fully stocked with everything I could need in the kitchen, a library of books, beach towels, mats, boards... Dishwasher, washing machine and other appliances were all very new. Just a few miles from some great beaches in Hanalei. We were concerned that we'd get a lot of rain because it was February in Princeville, but weather turned out sunny most of time anyway. Had some trouble with the wireless internet, but after calling our contact at the resort--who picked up the phone every time--everything was taken care of immediately.
Lori from Venice, California on 10/22/2013 said:
I cannot describe the overall ambience, spaciousness, and comfort of this unit. Our stay was so relaxing and the unit has every amenity you would ever need while enjoying Kauai!! It is clean and inviting, cozy and well decorated! The kitchen is fantastic and has anything you would need to create all meals in. The washer/dryer (separate laundry room) is perfect ! The garage is stocked with Beach Chairs and ice chest and sand toys etc! Truly fully accommodated! The location in Princeville is the best and easy access to the unit was so nice. Cant wait to go back and stay Thank you
Beautiful and comfortable!
Emily from Sunnyvale on 08/16/2013 said:
Absolutely beautiful and very well furnished. This townhome has everything you need (and didn't want to bring on the plane with you) for an easy, relaxing vacation...beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel gear, sand toys, water shoes, etc. The pictures are accurate but really underestimate the quality and spaciousness of the home. We will definitely come back to stay the next time we come to Kauai!
Val from Honolulu on 08/12/2013 said:
Very spacious, clean, great layout for multiple friends or couples. Convenient location to shopping, market, beach. We preferred this unit to single family homes our friends were staying. We felt we got a newer property for the price. This was our second stay at Nihilani and definitely will stay again. Mahalo!
Brooke from LA on 06/15/2013 said:
I was only staying at the condo for 4 nights and it was so not long enough. The condo is in excellent condition and was so well stocked with everything that I could possibly need. It was so clean and so well taken care of. Im defiantly coming back to that beautiful island soon and most defiantly will plan my trip around the condo dates that are available.
Enjoyed our stay from Valley Center, CA on 11/09/2012 said:
The condo was beautiful, spacious, well designed and furnished. I wish we had more time to spend there, but our family was in another condo in the same development and that was the central gathering place for meals, etc. I acutally could see myself living there! What a great floor plan. Loved having nice beach towels, chairs and umbrellas for our use. Nice having a two-car garage also. We never could get the wireless to work for us, but didn't need it enough to call about it. My only complaint would be the over abundance of signs in the complex...so many rules posted everywhere. It was kind of ridiculous. "Signs, signs, everywhere signs...blocking out the scenery, etc..." I'm all for having a nice complex and keeping things (and people) in order, but it seemed a bit excessive and intimidating. That being said, if I ever find myself back on Kauai (usually go to the Big Island), I will book the condo again. Highly recommend it!
Spacious. Warm. Welcoming. Amenities. Great bang for your buck!
kristiand from Alaska on 02/21/2012 said:
Great location. Spacious. Warm. Welcoming. All the comforts of home plus so much more. Highly recommended and if we ever return to Princeville, this unit will be our desired unit for the value, amenities, and size.
The perfect vacation space!
L & G from Seattle on 04/30/2011 said:
From my first contact with the staff at aloha Condos through the last day of our vacation it is hard to think of enough adjectives to adequately describe our experience. The condo is beautifully decorated yet functional with all the amenities anyone would ever need. The pictures do not do it justice and everything far exceeded our expectations. My only hesitation in writing this review is I want to keep this wonderful condo all to myself so it will be available when we are back next year. Thank you to the owners but especially to Kristen and Graeme at aloha Condos for making the entire process of renting a vacation property, sight unseen, over the internet, a great experience.

This condo is so nice, clean, modern, beautifully decorated, nice quiet community, stocked with anything you would ever need. We were very happy with our stay, and if we go back to Kauai, we'll be staying there again!

This was a wonderful condo that sleeps 6 very comfortably. It has everything you need for the vacation and any questions I had were answered quickly and efficiently (like late change to make the double beds into a king bed. I went with 2 other couples. I wil stay there again if I can find the time!

A great place to rest and relax after a day of hiking, kayaking, etc. It was great value and super comfortable. I highly recommend staying here and will myself be a repeat customer
Bill T from honollu on 10/08/2010 said:
This rental is an exceptional value. First, it is air conditioned unlike other units, notable the Bali just across the street. Unit 24C has obviously been furnished by a professional interior decorator, and it is gorgeous. There is surround sound system for all the three televisons in the unit. All the amenities for a condo are available: a kitchen, a breadkfast nook, a dinning area, dishes, utensils, and a washer and dryer. And, it is very quiet. We owned a unit is Lanikai in Honolulu and rented it on Vrbo that had private access to the ocean. The unit in Kauai, 24C, compares well even without the ocean access and is a better value. Thank you, Andy Irons! Bill Tateishi
Relaxing, affordable and elegant
Lisa from Portland, Or on 06/24/2010 said:
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed. Arrangements were hassle free. Our family had a great time. Rate was very reasonable. Our only complaint was that the pool was closed for quite a bit of our stay.
Very Pleasant Experience
Mike from Laguna Vista, Texas on 06/03/2010 said:
The driving instructions from the airport to the property location were were easily understood as were the condominium and grounds rules. The accomodations were well kept and first class as were the surrounding properties. The entertainment system controls took a bit of getting used to. Instruction manual would have been helpeful. I appreciate being able to check in and out without having to physically deal with an on site agent or management company.

We had the best stay at this beautiful condo. The condo is so dialed, it had everything we needed. We cant wait to come back next year. We wont stay anywhere else.
Gail Salmonsen from Carmel CA on 04/15/2010 said:
My family had a wonderful time at your condo. It was furnished great-good dishes, silver, and glassware. We enjoyed barbequing and the hot tub. Would recommend it to anyone.
Family Soroa from Portland, OR on 04/01/2010 said:
Townhome 24 C allowed us to enjoy a perfect holiday. It offers all the needed amenities, fully equipped kitchen and plenty of room to stay in when the weather is bad. We will return for sure and recommend to friends and family.
Exactly as described
Theresa from Lincroft, NJ on 03/15/2010 said:
Perfect for families - great location. The condo was exactly what we needed while in town for a family wedding. Everyone else stayed close by at the resort but with such a large group we needed a more economical solution. The condo is lovely and the location was ideal. I highly recommend.
Spacious & Comfortable Condo
Plescia family from San Francisco on 05/13/2009 said:
For three nights in late February my family rented Townhome 24c and we very extremely satisfied with our experience. I was traveling with my wife, 13 month old daughter, and mother in-law. We enjoyed the large common areas and the individual bathrooms were a huge plus. Washer & dryer accommodations came in handy and multiple kitchen supplies allowed us to cook-up a feast and enjoy dinning on the balcony nightly. The swimming pool at Nihilani was superb and somewhat quiet which made it easier on my daughter and more relaxing for my wife. We enjoyed morning jogs and leisurely evening strolls on the nearby paved paths. Waling distance to the grocery store and a quick 10 minute drive to Hanalei beach made the location perfect.
Best Place on North Shore
Kealani from La Crosse, Wisconsin on 04/02/2009 said:
Need proof we liked this place? We bought a Nihilani unit following our stay. Long time renters on the North Shore of Kauai, we decided to try Nihilani while enjoying the fantastic beaches, great hiking and world-class golf. Well laid out floor plan, excellent condition and nice pool and hot tub nearby. Outstanding service: Awake at 5:00 AM (late for a Mainland visitor)the first day, I was having trouble getting my laptop to connect to the wireless router. Not wanted to disturb anyone so early, I sent an email to Kristen requesting help. She responded immediately and was on the way with a replacement router before 8:00 AM. Enabled me to finish my work and get to Anini Beach before 10:00 AM.
very nice vacation
The West's from scottsdale, az on 04/02/2009 said:
We had a wonderful two week stay at this property. The condo is beautifully furnished and very nicely appointed. the electronics are top notch and worked beautifully. We loved the location and the kids loved the pool.
recommended this place by a family member and wasn't disappointe
Jeff from San Jose, CA on 11/04/2013 said:
Checking in was very easy. We were provided directions and instructions with how to access the townhome. I never had questions during the process because anything we needed to know was already given to us. Even though we arrived in the dark, it we didn't have much trouble navigating to location. We were using GPS navigation, but unit 27a is located towards the end of the road which makes it easier to find. The home was spacious, comfortable. Had all the cooking goodies we needed to cook dinner some nights rather than have to go out to eat. Anything we may have needed to enjoy a day in Kauai was in the garage. Boards, towels, water shoes, golf balls, coolers, chairs, baby specific items. I wasn't staying with a family but the house literally had everything we needed; even a french press coffee maker for single cups. The complex was quiet, clean. There were roosters (they're everywhere) but they weren't a disturbance at all. The only thing that might be a problem for some people is it's on the North Shore. We were on a golfing trip and most of the courses were about an hour drive away. But the drive wasn't that big of a hamper on our gasoline usage, and we actually enjoyed the scenic drives to/from the North Shore. It was my first time on Kauai, but the Princeville area seemed more quiet and less tourists than the Southern part of Kauai. I actually preferred the North Shore.
Exceeded our expectations
Eyao from San Diego on 04/17/2013 said:
We absolutely loved our stay at the condo. It was beautiful and very well kept, we didn't want to leave. Everything exceeded our expectations and we plan to return next year for a longer stay. We highly recommend 27a!
Very comfortable and well furnished, would definitely rent this
Walker and Forte from San Diego and Hermosa Beach on 12/04/2012 said:
The condo was very well furnished from household items to beach accessories and toys. It is very clean and spacious and my family and I would definitely love to stay here again. The location is so close to Hanalei, it is very quiet, pool area is nice. The only item we needed was an add'l television...one for the adults and one for children. Overall, great place!
Beautiful townhouse worth every penny
Kimy from Millbrae on 09/04/2012 said:
Walking into the townhouse my first thought was how beautiful it was and it was much bigger than I expected. Kristen had a welcome bag for us and it was a great way to start our stay. The townhouse is conveniently located near foodland and near all the popular North Shore beaches. Doing my research I felt the price for this townhouse was a steal given the amenities and location. Will definitely be booking here for our next Kauai vacation!
OahuBelle from Ewa Beach, Hawaii on 06/05/2012 said:
This is a gorgeous townhome, very well kept and extremely inviting. We've stayed at a couple units in this resort and though this one is farther from the pool (and still just a four minute walk max), we thought these beds were the most comfortable. It's well equipped with kitchen items, linens, and all the beach toys, coolers, and snorkel gear you could possibly need. We always enjoy visiting Kauai and this weekend was no exception. From reservation to checkout - it was a great experience.
Very clean, comfortable well equipped home
Hawkins Family from Flagstaff, Arizona on 03/11/2012 said:
Appreciated all the items that were included with the home during our stay , Including cables needed for electronics, Wi Fi , Beach supplies , Kitchen was well equipped as well and was lacking nothing. We appreciated your thoughtfulness regarding our needs during our stay. All we had to purchase was groceries.

We arrived at the condo and was very impressed. Everything was what we expected. Clean and spacious. the Condo location was great and was very quiet which we enjoyed.
KWalthour from Carmel, California on 10/20/2011 said:
My husband two young daughters and I stayed in 27a for a week and loved it. Every possible comfort was thought out and available. The rooms are so comfortable and the beds divine. Its really quiet and peaceful. Anyone who stays here would never stay in a hotel again. This was our third trip to Kauai in three years and without a doubt, we will not be staying anywhere else when we come again next year. Thank you for opening your home to visitors!
MB from Utah on 10/01/2011 said:
We spent a week here with my family and had an amazing trip. The condo is absolutely beautiful, with every amenity you could possibly want. It was great to have a full kitchen so that we could prepare healthy meals for ourselves. The beds were comfortable and I loved going out on the lanai's for early morning relaxation. We had occasion to contact the property manager a few times and she was wonderful to work with. The condo has several beach toys in the garage (boogie boards, some snorkel equipment, sand toys) which were very nice to have on hand. The only negative we could think of was that the pool in the condo complex has some pretty strict rules. It wasn't really a great place for kids to go. It was immaculate and a beautiful pool/hot tub, but every time we went to swim we were told we couldn't do what we were doing. Basically, the rules are no noise, no pool noodles, no rafts, no snorkels, etc. I think they should just put up a sign that says no kids because kids inevitably will make a little noise while swimming. The resident manager who drives around all day making sure people are following the rules in the complex could relax just a tad. My husband and I enjoyed the hot tub by ourselves, but our kids couldn't have any fun. I wouldn't decide against this condo based on that however, you don't really need a pool when you're this close to beautiful beaches! We can't wait to return to Kauai and our fabulous "Hawaii house" as the kids call it.
Breathtaking Condo...Almost as Beautiful as a Hawaiian Sunset
Doctor E and T from Springfield, MO on 09/05/2011 said:
This condo had all the amenities of home. With extra goodies around every corner (beach mats, towels, some snorkel gear) and the kitchen was equipped to our liking (blenders, utensils, bowls, pans etc.). The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The decor was tastefully done. With our love of the beach, the washer and dryer was very handy to wash out the swimsuits and towels. We traveled around every ounce of the island and thought Princeville was by far the most beautiful. We were a little weary of everything being more expensive on the North shore, but to our surprise, it was very similar. There was one surprise, we left the screen open and a really fat cat called PT Cruiser that wondered in. He said his Hellos and was out the door. Just a neat experience all around. Much Mahalo for a wonderful much needed vacation. I would recommend this property to families, couples, etc. (*There were stairs, so not handicapped accessible and the bedrooms and 2 of the bathrooms were upstairs. Not a problem at all with our family...)
Paradise at Princeville
HP from Oak Park, CA on 08/27/2011 said:
Unit 27a at Nihilani at Princeville is a clean, spacious, nearly new condo that comfortably could sleep 8 people. We were a party of 4 and never felt cramped or crowded. The townhome has a fully equipped, modern kitchen with top of the line appliances. The beds are comfortable and the living and dining room furniture are attractive and well-maintained. There is a flat screen tv in the living room hooked to cable and offering many channels. There is also cable internet access which is super fast. The unit is air conditioned, though we found that by making use of the screen doors and ceiling fans, we didn't need to use the electricity. There are 3 lanais, two upstairs and one downstairs with comfortable outdoor furniture for relaxation. The large washer and dryer upstairs was a godsend for towels and clothing. The unit came equipped with plenty of beach towels, boogie boards, beach mats, and assorted beach toys. There is even a high chair for a family with a small child. The unit is in the heart of the Princeville residential area, a mile from Foodland market and 10 minutes by car from the swimming beach at Hanalei. Queen's Bath and Hideaways Beach are a 20-30 minute hike for those who don't mind making their way down (and back up) the steep cliffs. There is also a black-bottom pool with a small waterfall on site. Only wish it had been open beyond 9 PM. All in all, a lovely condo and a great vacation and at very reasonable price!!
Maggie from San Jose, CA on 07/28/2011 said:
We so enjoyed this condo! It was perfect for a family of 5 with lots of space and it had everything we needed. It was decorated beautifully yet felt very comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed the pool area and it was close to all of the north shore sights and activities. We felt spoiled by this condo and we hope to come back again and stay longer!
Great North Shore Choice!
From Toronto from Canada on 07/26/2011 said:
Unit 27a was a great choice for us. The unit and furnishings were high grade (except for one chair in the living room that had some significant wear and tear)and as shown in the photos. Kitchen was well equipped and easy to work in. Location is a convenient drive to the North Shore activities and shopping. Note the Bbqs are shared at the pool, so go early to avoid a wait for grill space. Also, the pool is a short walk, but along the roadway. All considered, we were very pleased with our stay. Thanks aloha Condos!
Fabulous Nihilani Princeville 27a
Happy Campers from Liberty UT on 05/23/2011 said:
We were shocked when we arrived at how clean and modern and tastefully decorated this condo was. It was comfortable and had pretty much everything anyone could need for a 2 day or a 2 month stay. It was a rare surprise to find a rental condo in such exquisite condition and at such a reasonable price. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat!!
Very relaxing stay.
Mr Travel from Albany NY on 05/09/2011 said:
The unit is located on the north shore of Kauai which is a more relaxed and quiet area. The unit was in good shape and was a perfect size for the 5 of us. The pool and hot tub were very nice to. And just a 10 minute drive brought you to Hanalei Bay beach!
Beautiful rental property!
katblue16 from Rocky Ford, CO on 04/17/2011 said:
This condo, 27a, at Nihilani, Princeville, was one of the most beautiful properties we have rented for vacation in the past 10 years. It was clean, located conveniently for us, and just a lovely Hawaiian vacation rental. We hiked and "beached" all day and came home to this immaculate, restful place for the evenings. We enjoyed reading on the patios and decks, having the convenience of the washer and dryer and making dinner over a glass of wine in the kitchen/bar area. The beds and linens were first class to collapse in at night. Having the garage made the car secure. Just a perfect haven for vacation!
Texas tourists from Austin, TX on 12/24/2010 said:
We spent 3 weeks in December 2010 at 27a and found it most relaxing. Nihilani is an upscale condo community with mostly owners or long-term rentals. 27a feels like a home with quality appliances and furnishings and fine detail work in construction. Most pleasant and we did need the a/C at all, although it covers the entire unit if needed. Possible limitations: a walk to the pool making it too difficult to have a cookout (the two grills were inoperable when we were there); no workout-exercise room in complex; beach is a drive away. We would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful condo, very spacious with all the amenities.
Jim from 7545 Manulele Place, Honolulu, Hi 96825 on 10/07/2010 said:
Lovely 3 bedroom condo with all bedrooms located upstairs and living space downstairs. The condo is well furished, however, it lacked a TV in the Master Bedroom. Everyhthing was to our liking, however, the check out policy of 10:00 seems to be on the early side, would prefer 12:00/
Luxurious home living
Justin from US on 10/04/2010 said:
This is a fantastic rental home. We were traveling with our infant for the 1st time so we were looking for something that felt like home and after staying there for a week we didn't want to leave. The home is very well furnished and everything you can think of is already provided -- detergent, coffee filters, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc. The beds were really comfortable and the central air conditioning came in very handy. The neighborhood also felt very safe and it was very quiet (except for the morning rooster!). Staying up in Princeville is definitely much more relaxing than the other more touristy cities.
Kauai lover from Sedona AZ on 09/21/2010 said:
We have been coming to Kaui for many years now, and renting different condos. The Nihilani 27a is by far the best value, the most comfortable and the best equipped. It is very spacious and the ac works really well.
We didn't want to go home!
Two Couples on Vacation from Georgetown, KY on 07/08/2010 said:
My husband and I stayed in 27a with another couple. It was the perfect condo for our vacation! It was so well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed to make some great meals. We loved grilling down at the pool. The beds were so comfortable, and the showers were amazing. We were so pleased with how clean it was, and we were so thankful for the beach chairs, cooler, boogie boards, etc. We've been to Kauai several times, and this was by far the most comfortable trip because of the condo. It was the perfect place to relax after a day of adventure on the island,and the perfect place to just spend a lazy day by the pool and relaxing in the condo. We can't wait to come back!

This condo is beautiful and fully equipped especially for a family with children. We felt it had absolutely everything we needed for our 5 night stay. It is located very close to the pool which was great too. It was extremely quiet at night time. They also had all the things you will need for a day at the beach. We had no problems at all during our stay and would love to come back again. We loved the island of Kauai!
Kelowna, BC from Canada on 05/08/2010 said:
The unit was great. The place was clean when we arrived and had everything we needed for a day at the beach. Complex was very quiet and all of the neighbors were friendly. I can't wait to take the family back.
Excellent, well-equipped and spacious.
matteaston from san francisco, ca on 03/05/2010 said:
A wonderful, roomy, homey townhouse with tons of storage, a great kitchen for cooking and plenty of hang-out space. Our family of four thought this was great. About 1.25 miles -- 2.5 miles roundtrip for a perfect morning walk or short jog -- gets you down to the St. Regis entry with wonderful views of the ocean from the lawn and bluffs. Foodland grocery is just outside the gates of the Princeville resort for supplies and food. The town of Hanalei and the gorgeous Hanalei Bay beach are about 5 mins. away by car.

This past August my wife and I took my mother on her dream vacation to Hawaii. We stayed in condo 27A at Nihilani at Princeville. This condo is beautiful. It has everything from a kitchen with everything to an flat screen HDTV, perfect for watching the movies you recorded that day. It is very clean and spacious and Princeville is the perfect place to have your home base when you are staying on Kauai. This condo was the perfect place to come back and relax after a day of site seeing or playing on the beach. There are several beaches close by and great jogging/walking paths. Our only regret is having to leave. If you are thinking about renting a place in Kauai, this is the one.
This condo was beautifully decorated and was perfect for our fam

We were so happy with the Nihilani Townhome. The place was so beautiful and so close to the pool. This condo was perfect for our family. It was so helpful that the condo had a highchair, pack n play and sand toys for your 22 month old! One less thing to stress about packing. When we come back to Kauai, we will definitely come back to Nihilani 27A!
Great comfort and relaxation in a very well situated townhome
Greg from Geneva, Switzerland on 08/20/2009 said:
We had a great time in 27 A. It was beautifully furnished, felt very safe in a good neighbourhood. We really felt at home instantly and it was very relaxing. We spent only 5 nights but could have easily spent 2 weeks :-) Although it advertized only 2 full rooms, it had indeed 2 King size bed bedrooms plus a 3rd room with 2 single beds, so it can fit 6 very comfortably. Bathroom in the master bedroom is really. Good quality linen and towels, and even beach towels are supplied. There is a good HD TV with Hifi sound and a great selection of programs. The pool and jacuzzi are quiet and relaxing. The small shopping center at the entrance of Princeville is very convenient and has a few restaurants (e.g. C&J's Steak & Seafood). North of Kauai was one of our best places in Hawaii and it took minutes from 27A to reach beautiful sandy beaches, one different each time, Hanalei being very close with its shops and restaurants (less than 5 minutes). It took typically 40 minutes to drive to Lihue for the helicopter tour, and less that 1h30 minutes to drive to Waimea at the other end of the island. Princeville feels much greater than Waipuli or Poipu in my opinion, with great tropical vegetation and the moutain right behind. So, no doubt we enjoyed 27A ! ;-)
beautiful, clean, comfortable condo
Judy from California on 07/28/2009 said:
We are quite satisfied with our stay at Nihilani 27A. It's conveniently located for exploring north shore sites. The condo is in excellent condition, the beds are very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped. It's very spacious for the six of us (including two small children) and everyone enjoyed the stay. We didn't use the pool or other common facility.
mkaamiller from Chandler, AZ on 05/26/2009 said:
This was our second visit to Princeville and the beautiful Island of Kauai. This home was wonderful, perfect for our family. Clean, well set up and organized! We will travel here again! Be sure to take advantage of the great Farmer's Markets and local produce and fish! We were advised to purchase a book about things to do in Kauai, and it made our trip even more perfect. It contained suggestions of secluded beaches and local venues. We beached, snorkeled, hiked and Kayaked. A perfect relaxing trip!
tiff and chris from washougal wa on 04/25/2009 said:
We loved staying in unit 27a at the Nihilani in Priceville. The condo was spacious and wonderfully decorated. We used the gourmet kitchen every day. The grocery store right in princeville was very convienent. The princeville hotel is a short distance from the condo and you can see stunning sunsets. The condo was very clean and easy to find. There are a lot of great beaches close by and the (queens bath) just up the road. Overall we had the best vacation in Kauai and the Nihilani felt a lot like home in paradise.

This property was great for us. First I want to say that it looks just like the pictures and is beautifully furnished. The rooms are huge and there is plenty of space to make yourself at home. And I must say it was nice having a parking garage. It's quiet and peaceful as it is tucked away from any traffic, and it is right near the shopping center which was very convenient. Overall great stay, and would definitely recommend to anyone.

This condo was absolutely beautiful. It is in a great location. We just loved staying somewhere that felt like home and not a hotel. It had everything you would need inside the condo, plenty of room and just all around gorgeous inside. We wanted to buy one of these condos by the end of our vacation. We will definitely be back and would love to stay there again!
