Plantation at Princeville
Southern California Traveler from Cypress on 11/17/2013 said:
We loved this place!!! We didn't want to leave!!! It was our dream condo!! My sisters and I (three total, in our forties) loved this place!!! Lots of windows, plush furnishings. Everything was provided (i.e. dish soap, detergent, shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, etc.). Easy check-in and checkout. We didn't use the pool, but we saw that people were enjoying it. I slept in the bedroom with the twin beds and I didn't feel that the noise from other people were bothersome. My other sister who slept in the front bedroom said she never heard any car noise. If we had to pick one thing that we didn't like, it would be the dishes. The dishes were too big and hard to fit into the dishwasher. We all highly recommend this place!!!
Kanealoha from honolulu, hawaii on 11/16/2013 said:
The unit was in the perfect location, over looking the pool. The second floor provided a lanai which was an excellent place to dine. How relaxing. The unit was well stocked and provided everything we needed. A second television would have been nice.
Wonderful accommodations and good location
Rosie from Moraga, CA on 02/04/2013 said:
The condo is very spacious and the best thing is that each bedroom has its own bathroom. We also liked that there is a nice exercise room in addition to the swimming pool and the hot tub. The grounds were very well maintained. The unit also has snorkeling gear and lots of water toys for children. Make sure you visit anini Beach if you have small children and Queen's Bath for the more adventurous people in your group. These two places are very close. We found the location of the condo to be excellent for that part of the island. We highly recommend it.
Great place to relax

We loved the condo at Plantation at Princeville. The check in was very easy, we were provided with the directions and check in instructions via email several days prior to arriving to the island. The house is well stocked up with all that you might need: pots, pans, silverware, plates, etc. Even had some spices and tea/coffee. There are also 6 beach towels and plenty of beach toys, beach chairs and several snorkeling equipments. The lanai is very nice and has a table that seats six comfortably. The a/C is only in the master bedroom and living room as it is stated, but we left windows open at night and fans going and slept comfortably. All the furniture is nice and looks new. When we arrived there were cutting boards, a bit worn, but still in good condition. The management called and said that they are planning to bring new cutting boards for us, which was a nice touch.
Sublibyss from East Lansing, MI on 01/13/2012 said:
My wife and I and both of our parents stayed here for a week in January, and we absolutely loved the place. Just as pictured, clean and beautiful. Everything we needed was there, sun screen, body surf boards, snorkeling gears, you name it. Everyone had a wonderful time. The kitchen is spacious and with every we needed. We could have used some asian spices. Ago I did not personally Kristen, but she was of great help. I accidentally locked the garage opener in the garage and had to call Kristen. It took only about five minutes before someone was able to come and help me. I greatly appreciated the service.
Loved It Would Go Back
C Dog from Vancouver, BC on 10/18/2011 said:
Really liked the condo would recommend it to others. Clean, bug free, had everything we wanted at a realy good value.
Terrific, comfortable condo with all the fixings
Julie N. from Pleasanton, CA on 08/05/2011 said:
Condo was very nicely maintained and comfortable. Things that I especially liked about it were: kitchen was well stocked with very nice dishes, pots, pans, utensils, condiments--this was a pleasant surprise since I've stayed at luxury condos that were not as well appointed as this condo; lots of good, clean, fluffy towels; comfortable pillows and beds; comfortable couches; roomy lanai overlooking pool (sometimes a little noisy, but not a big issue). There were paper towels, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, dishwasher detergent, plastic baggies and foil, etc. All things that you need, but is a pain to have to buy when you are on vacation only to leave half of it behind when you leave. I did buy more laundry detergent (not sure if property manager would have brought more) and we ran out of kleenex in some rooms and paper towels (again, not sure if property manager would have brought more). Would have been nice if they stocked those items in the condo. We didn't really need or use them, but the garage had lots of beach chairs, beach towels, pool toys, snorkling gear, etc. I just felt like this place took care of the little things and it really made a difference. The condo does not have granite counter tops, but in my opinion, the place is a great value because of it and is still a great looking place. Loved the fact that each bedroom had a bathroom. Only other issue was that the two smaller bedrooms do not have air conditioning, so you have to leave the door open at night if you want to get cool air. Was not a major issue for us. The ceiling fan in the twin-bed bedroom clicks when you have it on high. That should get fixed. The toilet handle in the bathroom for the twin-bed bedroom is very hard to press. You almost feel like you are going to break the handle. That should also be looked at.
Great trip to the Garden Isle
Peter and Company from Dallas, Texas on 07/10/2011 said:
Roomy, clean, and modern unit. It has everything you need including beach supplies, cooking utensils and lots of room. I would stay there again tomorrow.

Tasteful and Clean
R. Chang from San Francisco Bay Area on 04/07/2011 said:
We had a wonderful group vacation here at the Plantation Condos in Princeville. The condo was tastefully decorated, clean, and overall a great and affordable option! The outdoor gas grill was temperamental (we had one successful attempt out of three tries) and the main kitchen knife was in dire need of a serious sharpening. Also the bedroom suite with the queen side bed was not kid or adult friendly! We stubbed many toes! Other than that, we were very satisfied and would recommend this rental to other large groups.
Andrea from Edmonton from Edmonton, Alberta CANADA on 03/07/2011 said:
We were very happy to see that the condo was exactly the same as in the photos. Kristen was super great, always responding quickly to any emails or inquiries during our stay, and making us feel welcome and at home. We will definitely be coming back!
Brian K from California on 06/23/2010 said:
All in all it was a nice unit, however the amenities in a couple of other units I visited while there were better. The dining room table only sat 4 people and the occupancy was 6 so we could not sit and eat together. The living room furniture was more comfortable in the other units I visited (2 rentals and 1 owner occupied). The tv remote was absolutely ridiculous to operate, but in Hawaii tv is not high priority (except the World Cup was on).
Perfect set-up for our family!
tlrtravel from Vancouver, BC Canada on 07/13/2009 said:
Great condo, very clean, everything you would want/need for the beach/pool was provided. Would definitely stay here again. My favourite part was the condo resort pool & hot tub - complete with waterfall. One of the best condo stays that we've had! Didn't want to leave! Mahalo!
George from St. Peter, Mn on 06/05/2009 said:
Three couples shared this condo for a week. We had a great time and the location to the beaches was an easy drive. The condo was spacious and we enjoyed eating on the lani. The pool and hot tub were right behind the unit. Should note it was very quiet in the area. Overall, we hope to return soon
Sasha from Alberta, Canada on 04/24/2009 said:
This is a beautiful, clean and well kept condo. It had everything we needed. The grounds were well kept and the pool was a nice treat as the beach was a fair distance away. Would definitely stay here again.
Awesome place to stay, on an Awesome Island
Party of 6 from West Bountiful, Utah on 04/23/2009 said:
This is a great place to stay on Kauai. My Wife, myself,and our four daughters thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Plantation at Princeville. We would highly recommend this property to any of our friend or family that may be coming to the island.
dream vacation of a life time
minameme from clinton, maryland on 04/03/2009 said:
i rented 2 condo's for me and my family, it was more beautiful than the web sight. and the people who were our neighbors were fantastic. we had a wonderful time. for several members it was there first time in hawaii. i was so thankful i had taken the time to check-out the pictures. i am trying to get other family members to come back in 2010-2011. thank you for a wonderful vacation home. mrs. maxwell
lk from Honolulu,HI on 04/02/2009 said:
Condo was very nice but the stains on the sheets and the lack of towels was an inconvienece.
Thank you for your candid review.
I only wish that you had called to let us know about the sheets. We did not realize the twin sheets had marker stains on them and we have since replaced them. As for the towels: we set out two bath towels for each stated guest on the reservation.
Vacation rentals are able to offer better prices than hotels because we do not offer daily maid service. I hope you were able to make use of the full size washer/dryer in the unit so you had fresh towels all week.

just another day in paradise
happy pappy from Kansas City on 12/02/2013 said:
We were completely satisfied with Condo 1221. It was well appointed, comfortable, clean, current, and roomy. We used the beach chairs, ice chests, and other beach equipment that was provided with the condo. We love this place.
Very comfortable stay
Calgary Family from Calgary, Alberta on 05/28/2013 said:
Unfortunately we could only stay 2 nights here. I wish we could have spent the rest of our holiday here. The unit was very well appointed. The kitchen had everything that you could ever need. The appliances were top notch and the beds were so comfortable. The whole check in process was very smooth and well organized. The space and three bedrooms were perfect for my wife and I plus our three daughters. I would definitely stay here again.
Roomy condo with all the emenities
425mom from Bellevue, WA on 04/30/2013 said:
We had a lovely stay at this condo. It has all the things you need, fully stocked kitchen (minus the food of course) but they do have the basics, like olive oil, salt & pepper and some spices. There is plenty of room with three bedrooms and three baths. The patio has comfy furniture for watching the pool area or sitting around playing cards. And it's nice to have a garage to park your car. Plenty of beach chairs and toys to use too! Would definitely return.
Comfy and spacious for the entire family
Julie98275 from Mukilteo, Washington on 03/06/2013 said:
We had a lovely stay at the Princeville Condo 1221. Was clean, spacious and quiet. Loved having access to beach towels, chairs, snorkel gear, boogie boards. The kitchen had everything we needed. The pool is nice but chilly. The hot tub was perfect.
Tommy from Portland, Oregon on 01/31/2013 said:
We've stayed in a number of locations on Kauai over the past few years and found this condo to be a good value. We appreciated all the beach chairs and nice beach towels, as well as the condo itself. Our only complaint was that the pool got a little load some evenings when there were groups of younger people staying on the property. But, I would stay here again and would recommend it if you want to be on the North Shore.
Beautiful lanai, spacious condo
Fran from Calgary on 01/14/2013 said:
The condo was all we had hoped for, spacious and,clean. The kitchen is very well equipped and there are many extras for the beach in the garage. The lanai is amazing, overlooking the pool. Princeville is on the rainy part of the island so be prepared to drive south to go to the beach during the winter months. There is a great grocery store and little shops very close by. Another BBQ by the pool would help reduce wait times for the grill.
We will be back!
Paul from Springfield, IL on 11/21/2012 said:
The condo was wonderful. Very nicely equipped with all the amenities of home. My wife has been coming to the island for 15+ years, and she said there is no need to try and find another place to stay. We were very happy with the entire process and look forward to coming back January '14 for our anniversary.
Great value! Great getaway!
Aloha Gang from Portland on 08/07/2012 said:
We had a wonderful time staying in 1221. Clean. Comfortable. Private and roomy for a family of four (two teenagers!). The beach extras in the garage made day trips easy and fun. Bbq was great and convenient. Called with one question and had an in-person solution within a few hours. Sooo thoughtful! Looking forward to a return trip! Mahalo!
Mike C. from Germantown, Wisconsin on 06/27/2012 said:
Our stay at condo 1221 was perfect. We had read so many great reviews about this condo and we were not disappointed. It was everything and more. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the beautiful lanai in the mornings and after a day of traveling around the island. The Princeville and Hanalei Bay area has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world.
An exhilarating experience with a great home away from home!
Thomas from California on 06/21/2012 said:
The service from first contact to leaving was great. The condo is first class. All amenities were supplied from the kitchen to the snorkeling gear. The only criticism I have is the BBQ area & Pool are located together. I think the BBQ area should be stand-alone with the addition of at least one more unit.
Peaceful & Clean
family5 from California on 06/15/2012 said:
We had a wonderful time in this condo. It was clean, well furnished, and, as others have stated, the beds were very comfortable! It was very peaceful, too! This specific condo is located in a quiet section and the lanai faces the pool, which was nice for us. The weather was beautiful and it only showered at night. The only downside was the stocking of the kitchen. We could have used more plates so we didn't have to wash after each meal and basic food items such as oil, Pam and seasonings. The garage had good beach accessories including toys, chairs, and umbrella.
Keith & Jenish Jackson (Ogden) from Payson, AZ on 03/25/2012 said:
The condo exceeded our expectations! We stayed there for a total of ten nights. The pictures online were nice, but the condo itself was even nicer in person. There is plenty of room in this condo. The lanai was the best feature. After spending a long day playing outside it was nice to just relax on the huge lanai. It was also great having a washer and dryer as well as a full functional kitchen in the unit to keep things clean & tidy. The beds were over the top comfortable...beware you may find yourself hitting the snooze button often. The condo is nicer than my own home, and we can't wait to go back! Mr. & Mrs. Jackson (Ogden)
Amateur Traveler from Iowa City, IA on 02/13/2012 said:
All three couples agreed that this place had everything we wanted. Since we made all of our own meals, having a decent kitchen and enough dining area was important to us. The three separate bathrooms kept us out of each other's way. The complex was quiet and well cared for. The pool was lovely and we often had it to ourselves. Many beaches are close as is the Kalalau trailhead. There is also a nice walking trail nearby. If we come back to Kauai, we will stay here again.
Great place to stay
Terri from Omaha, NE on 11/05/2011 said:
We had a great time in Kauai and the condo was perfect. Very clean, comfortable, and many amenities.
Wonferful Place for Families
PWK from Shawano, WI on 09/20/2011 said:
The condo 1221 couldn't have been nicer! We loved our stay there. I had my daughters and their toddlers with me and it was like being home...every amenity you could possibly need was there. It was so beautifully decorated and well stocked with towels, beach goodies and even beach toys for the babies. We especially loved spending time on the lanai enjoying the island breezes. The beds were extremely comfortable, kitchen well appointed, and the furniture throughout was some of the most comfortable I've ever experienced in a rental. We would recommend this condo to anyone and will rent it again on our next visit to Kauai. Kristen was a doll to work with and took care of our every need. All around delightful experience!
Condo 1221 is Wonderful!
paula c and family from Maple Valley Wa on 09/08/2011 said:
We loved our condo 1221 in Princeville! Princeville is a lovely resort area with very nicely kept grounds. If you want a quiet getaway, this is the place! The condo was exceptionally clean and well stocked with everything from kitchen supplies to beach activities! It was so nice not to have to rent anything for our beach excursions..thank you! The condo is very accommodating for families and small groups as with 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, we had plenty of room! The beds were very comfortable and the master bedroom and bath was amazing! We loved swimming in the pool at night after a full day of activities and dinner and we were usually the only ones in there! The workout room was great too. Hanalei town and Hanalei bay is not far away and a great beach for boggie boarding and swimming. I read every review before we stayed here and all the compliments people made were absolutely true! The only negative I read was to have maybe one more barbecue at the pool. We did not have that problem as we only saw one other person using it. This may be true during the busier times. All in all we loved our stay here and would recommend to all!
DrBRG from Saskatoon on 06/16/2011 said:
My wife and I, along with three friends, stayed at 1221 for just under a week in May of 2011. The condo is clean, the kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment, and the master bath is amazing. The lanai looks over a common green space with a pool. We spent many a night sitting on the lanai and enjoying the warm weather. We would definitely stay here again.
A Great Condo-- You Won't be Disappointed
Meintzer Family from San Mateo, Ca on 03/25/2011 said:
Perfect condo for a family with kids. The place comes with everything from salt and pepper and aluminum foil in the kitchen to beach chairs/mats, beach towels, boogie boards and ice chest coolers in the garage for a day at the beach. It's ideal for families with small kids, as a pack n' play and a booster chair were provided to us upon arrival, and all of the electrical outlets were baby proofed. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels for a family of six. The unit is also conveniently located by the pool. The management was very responsive when we had problems with the garage door opener and internet access; they fixed the problem within hours of our call. The overall property is ideally located, just 10 minutes from Hanalei Bay, and less than 2 miles from the St. Regis Hotel where we were attending a wedding. Two minutes away by car is Foodland, the main grocery store in the area, a great playground and the public library. I would highly recommend this place and particularly this unit. The road to the driveway of the condo dead ends so there aren't cars driving past your unit in the parking lot like the other condos on the property. My only suggestion for the property is to get another propane barbecue grill by the pool. Get there early to be the first on the grill, or you could be waiting in line for a while to cook your dinner. I loved our stay at this condo, and if we come to Princeville again, I wouldn't hesitate a second to rent this same unit. I highly recommend it.
Incredible Kauai getaway!
san diego doc from San Diego, CA on 04/23/2010 said:
Plantation at Princeville 1221 is a gem just a short walk from the luxury St. Regis Princeville and postcard snapshot Hanalei Bay. Amenities of a top-notch resort but with a more relaxed feel, the condo is immaculately kept with fully stocked kitchen, laundry and bathrooms, upscale decor and furniture allowing for a relaxed Kauai stay at a reasonable price, especially given the high price of food and dining on the island. This is a gem especially for families that want a getaway in resort surroundings (upscale furniture, relaxed north shore address, large Roman tub and romantic master suite) yet desiring the comforts of home-- laundry, kitchen, lanai/enclosed patio, pool/barbecue area, wi-fi, etc. The condo is essentially new with very little obvious wear and obvious pride in ownership is evident in the surroundings and amenities inside. There are running trails leading to the waterfront and St. Regis resort (along the golf course) and Princeville shopping area/grocery store is a very short drive (about 3 minutes) or leisurely walk away. The condo was easy to access and the management company very helpful and accessible throughout our stay. Great location for a drive to the end of the road along the north shore. New to a condo vacation experience as we were? This is the one to try as you will come away with a fabulous vacation!
Plantation at Princeville Condo 1221 - WONDERFUL!!
The Byler Bunch from The Beautiful State of Montana!!! on 03/11/2010 said:
We surely enjoyed our stay at the Plantation. A week flies by so quickly!! Very comfortable accommodations in every way. An item we saw for improvement would be another grill by the pool. There was a line every evening to use the one grill. A couple nights we ended up sharing it with another party. Hard to cook your meat as you like with someone else always opening up the grill. Also the man who lives under 1221 was not the most pleasant person. We just smiled at him when he complained of sand falling from our shoes off the steps onto his stuff. You live on an island for cryin' out loud. And, he complained that we were shaking the light fixtures as we walked or ran across the floor. Guess that goes with having someone live above you as we were not loud or rowdy in any way. Kristen is great!! Informed us well of the tsunami. Was gracious in allowing us a late check out as it worked out well with the incoming guests arriving after us. The condo is nicely decorated. The lanai is a super spot for kicking back and relaxing for hours. No regrets in choosing the Plantation at Princeville Condo 1221.
Great for our family!
LCK from Vancouver, BC on 02/03/2010 said:
My husband and our two kids (3 & 5) loved our stay Kauai. Our flight arrived late in the evening, and it was a pleasure unlocking the door and walking into the cool, welcoming and spotless condo. Amenities were more than expected and although we didn't need them, I was impressed to see there was plenty of infant/baby equipment stored. The kids made good use of the beach items in the garage too! The location was perfect for us. We had family staying at the hotel down the street. Foodland was only minutes away! It was also an easy drive up to Hanalei, or down to Kilauea or even Kapa'a. Anini beach was a great place to take the kids and also nearby. We loved our stay in the condo, and would have no problems booking again. The only "issue" we had was the fact that there wasn't the best sound proofing between the top and bottom floors of the condos. So the people below us could hear our kids playing above them. They were polite in their request to try to keep them from running around, but that wasn't really the problem. They were not overly loud and were not running around - there just wasn't the best sound insulation between the suites. Something to keep in mind if you are travelling with young children.

Beautiful accomodations, wonderful weather, couldn't have asked for anything more...A true pleasurable vacation, and will rent again...Loved the house, the grounds, and pretty much everything...I can't say enough about how wonderful it was. Thanks for EVERYTHING!!!
Leon S from Thousand Oaks, Ca on 09/26/2009 said:
This is our second time at this location. I'm sure there other nice condo's in this complex however, we feel this is the nicest with the best location. Unit 1221 overlooks the pool with the soothing sound of the pool waterfall plus, it has a huge spa which many other locations do not have. The covered lanai is great when it rains and you can enjoy the rain on the comfy chairs pictured on the web site. After a long day at the beach it's nice to come back and relax at such a nice condo. The condo has very nice furnishings and the master bed is very comfortable. We'll be back.
Great Value on a Modern (and Very, Clean) Vacation Home
Row from Florida on 09/01/2009 said:
This was our 3rd trip to Kauai. We've also been to Maui, Oahu, Lanai and the Big Island. If my parents had not been poor immigrants; if they had left me a big pile of money, I would move to Kauai and live there until I die. But I digress.... Aloha experience: Kristen is a very warm and welcoming reservations hostess, providing superior service through our stay. Special requests for grand-baby support (e.g., high chair, play pen) were cheerfully met. She also provided thorough info about our accommodations. Upon arrival, we were touched to find a thoughtful "welcome basket" containing chocolate covered and roasted macadamia nuts, a beach bag, Hawaiian coffee and potato chips, and several other items. Accommodations: very nice, modern, and spacious; a quiet location on the very best part of Kauai. Well maintained and clean. Many major amenities provided which, in our experience, are not always found in rentals in Hawaii: free internet, garage, etc. Also, many smaller items were stocked in the unit, like plastic wrap, aluminum foil, a handful of spices, food storage containers, an extensive collection of dishes, bakeware and cookware (we actually baked bread while there - OK, over the top!), boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels, etc. We saved a bundle by not having to buy (or haul) these items! The appliances are nice: side-by-side fridge/freezer with ice & water dispenser, full sized oven/stove and microwave, quality coffee maker, toaster and blender, dishwasher, etc. The Princeville location is absolutely wonderful! If you've been to Maui, Princeville is a lot like Wailea - the upscale side of Maui - because it feels more like a community than a tourist spot. A few minutes down the road is the charming and laid-back village of Hanalei. For restaurants, we recommend Kalypso, Bar-Acuda, and Bubba's. (And the Hanalei Bay Resort has a killer loco-mocos for b-fast.) P.S. If Hanalei Bay is flat, try surfing at the Rock Quarry, about 15 minutes north.
Happy from Santa Maria, California on 08/04/2009 said:
We found the place to very comfortable and hospitable. The Aloha Condos manager was excellent. We had slow draining baths and she was able to rectify the problem even on Sunday. The condo was well equiped. It even had ice chests for our daily excursions. Beach chairs and boggie boards came in handy as well. The complex was well managed...the pool area is well maintained. We found the complex to be quite relaxing. The only thing we noticed is that we wish it had more AC ducts to provide better/even distribution. Though it was very minor and not many of us complained. We really enjoy our vacation and the accommodation is a big part of it. We highly recommend this to anyone.
Beautiful condo, wonderfully maintained and appointed with every
Arizona Family Friendly Vacation from Glendale, Arizona on 06/25/2009 said:
The condo and facilities were faboulous. Beautifully maintained and appointed with everything that a couple or family could need. They provided everything from trash bags to laundry soap for the first couple of washes. Kristen is a delight to work with and gets right back to you if you have questions or concerns. The location is quiet and peaceful. In the evenings take time to stroll to different areas throughout the Princeville neighborhood to watch breath taking sunsets. Sit out on the Lani and enjoy the sound of the pools tranquil waterfall and the cool breeze. But be careful.... I can guarantee that you will catch yourself drifting off to sleep before you know it. I can't recommend this place enough. Great people, wonderful location and facilities that have all the conviences of home. Maybe that's why they call it paradise.
HIGHLY recommend!! Wonderful & beautiful
Rainer from los angeles, ca on 06/04/2009 said:
The condo was located in a beautiful place, with a beautiful view and was decorated wonderfully. Even as spectacular as Kauai is, we always looked forward to returning to the condo. It feels like a home, a big kitchen with everything you need to make anything from breakfast to dinner, the beds are very comfortable, bathrooms are large & include hair dryers that actually work great (a plus not to have to pack). It was also very clean (complaints others had at the same location). The patio is large with lots of seating. The pool is very nice with large bbq's to grill. We were there for a wedding and can't wait to return with my entire family. The price of the condo was amazing too, we had no idea it was going to be as great as it was. I have worked on 5 star hotels for a long time and this was just as good. I love being able to cook our own food with the fish markets so close. The condo is located in beautiful scenery and i loved taking early morning walks. In the garage there are lots of beach toys, coolers, chairs and even boogie boards. I highly recommend THIS particular condo, all our other friends were very jealous (they were on the same property). You will not be disappointed!
Barry K. from Point Richmond, Ca. on 05/07/2009 said:
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we could not have been happier. Our stay was care free. The condo had everything we possibly needed. Every aspect of the condo made us very comfortable. The layout was spacious and the veranda was the perfect place to cap off each evening. It's the first time we stayed on this side of the island and we loved it. We were in the heart of Princeville and if we wanted, we could take a short drive north into Hanalei. We had a wonderful vacation and we look forward to returning here again.
Beautiful Condo on a Beautiful Island!
Nicole from DeKalb,IL on 04/30/2009 said:
We had a perfect vacation on Kauai and staying in this beautiful condo was a big part of it! Anything that we could possibly need was in the condo, the amenities were exceptional. This condo was perfect - clean, beautiful and comfortable! After a day exploring this amazing island, it was nice to be able to come back to this condo - either soak in the hot tub or sit on the comfy lanai. Aloha condos was great to work with, it was nice to know that Kristen was available to assist if anything may have come up! (Nothing did, of course!) Kauai is my favorite place, I love this island! I HIGHLY recommend this condo for your stay, you will not be disappointed!!
Couldn't be better!
Satisfied007 from Redondo Beach, CA on 04/22/2009 said:
This was my first 'condo rental' experience, and I can't imagine a better first time. When I walked in the door, I was ecstatic to find that it looked exactly as it did in the on-line pictures; and all the rooms were in pristine condition. It also had the best supplied kitchen I've ever seen. Not only did it have a sensible variety of dishes, knives and pans, but it had things like plastic wrap. That's just brilliant! We had 6 people in our group ranging from my 8 year old son to my 88 year old mother, and everyone loved the condo. My boy loved the flat panel TV/cable, and my mom loved the comfortable seating and 'flat' living space. If we return to Kawaii, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this condo again.
Excellent and Luxurious Accomodations
Shayla Middleton from Maui, HI on 04/06/2009 said:
We stayed in this unit with 2 other adults for a wedding of some dear friends, making it 4 of us in 3 rooms. We were lucky enough to get the master- and it was FANTASTIC! I wish I had a master bath in my house like this unit! So tastefully done in tile and beautiful fixtures, and the linen and bedding was so nice, I went right out and bought new linen for my vacation rental on Maui!!!! The owners really went the extra mile with upgraded furnishings, window coverings, appliances and wireless internet too. It was spacious, comfortable, and really felt like a true 'home' base. Why this unit even has a GARGAGE!!! I usually pine for an oceanview, but with the upgraded features of this unit and the lovely garden view, I really did not miss seeing the ocean, we just enjoyed it more when we headed down to the beach, which ws not far away at all...and stayed a bit longer... and once we got home, we flopped into our luxury bedding and felt like home. MAHALO nui LAO for creating such a nice space, for such an affordable price. Oh and by the way, the local on island agent was wonderful too, she stopped by personally and helped us sort out a few things we needed in very short order.

We had a wonderful time and the condo was fantastic. We are rather picky and were worried about how nice it would be once we arrived. But, it was exactly like the website showed; beautiful furnishings, clean everywhere, and a rather large lanai to lounge on after a long day at the beach. Princeville is so beautiful and this condo was equally beautiful! We would definitely stay there again.
Very comfortable for five adults

We enjoyed our stay in this spacious and lovely three bedroom, three bath condo. It was walking distance from a beautiful beach and to Princeville Villege. Every morning we had an Hawaiian breakfast on the Lanai, it was a beautiful extension of the living space.
Exceptional Rental Property

We had a exceptional time in Kauai! This property was BEAUTIFUL/COMFORTABLE/CLEAN. It was such a great choice. I HIGHLY recommend it. It was nice to be able to have the amenities of home but still feel like you were on vacation. Aloha Condos was a pleasure to work with and especially Kristen the property manager. What a pleasure to work with such professional people. The chairs on the patio are as comfortable as they look in the photo. What a joy it was to come back to this condo after a long day sightseeing or a day at the beach. Overall we had a fantastic vacation and look forward to coming back again and again and using this same property.
Fantastic rental unit!

We loved staying in condo 1222. It is very clean & comfortable. We loved having 3 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms plus the full kitchen, living room, lanai and washer and dryer. It was like being at home only we were in paradise! We will definately try to book this again the next time we go to Kauai:)
Jonny from Honolulu on 10/28/2013 said:
Condo 1222 was clean, roomy, well stocked. I thought it provided great value, in a very nice setting. We enjoyed the pool and the location is a great jumping off spot for Princeville and Hanalei.
Peaceful, Relaxing Vacation at Princeville Plantation!
OC Family from Orange County, CA on 08/24/2013 said:
Aloha condos and Kristen, are wonderful. We have rented from aloha condos several times, and have been extremely happy every time. The condo is clean, quiet, spacious, and convenient. Many beach toys, boogie boards, etc to use. Towels and bedding are like new, and soft! Beds were wonderful. My kids loved the 2 double beds! Fans worked great, as well as aC. Don't hesitate, you will not be sorry. We would happily stay here again!
A wonderfully maintained condo in paradise!

Just returned from a week long stay at Plantation 1222. Would highly recommend! The unit is so clean, well stocked with essentials and very nicely maintained. It's quite spacious and my family had more than enough room - we really appreciated the pack and play and high chair that were provided for our baby to use. We spent a ton of time at the local beaches - what a treat to not have to buy our own beach gear. Everything we needed was in the garage for us to use. My husband is a big fitness guy so he loved the onsite gym and couldn't get enough of the golf course just down the road from the condo. I loved having a good sized kitchen to prepare meals in - nice not to have to eat every meal out. Thank you Plantation 1222 for a fabulous vacation - we will be back!
Spacious and well kept

I found it to be everything we needed. The only down side was that it wasn't next to anything but near most things. If you want to relax its great. Kids might prefer a bit more nearby.
Kendra from San Mateo on 05/15/2013 said:
The condo is beautiful and very well maintained. The location of the complex is perfect and close to everything. The pool was also very nice and the neighbors were all very friendly. We hope to come back next year.
Sid from American Fork, UT on 04/06/2013 said:
We loved our stay here and will definitely go back. Everything was simply perfect. The decor is charming, inviting and relaxing. The rooms, bathrooms and closets are spacious. There is plenty of natural light making for an airy & open feeling. There are ample towels available including some beach towels for use. This condo is well maintained and stocked with anything possible you could ever need. Lots of great cookware, dishes and utensils. My husband loved the rice maker. The condo's garage was stocked with boogie boards, snorkel equipment, beach chairs, sand toys, and a cooler which we found incredibly useful. As if my family didn't get enough beach time, they also enjoyed the pool and hot tub early morning and every night too. My husband and son loved the exercise room and weights. The place is extremely well managed and organized...management was always available if needed for any question. The little extras mean a lot! Little extras like great shampoo/ conditioner and oatmeal soap that we loved. We were very pleased that the Plantation at Princeville goes above and beyond. You won't be disappointed.
Fabulous, fantastic, family-friendly condo

Plantation at Princeville Condo 1222 was the perfect setting for my families Holiday in Kauai. The location is close to shopping, groceries, walking paths, golf and is a short drive to the beautiful town of Hanalei. It gave us the option to cook it, as well as be near a variety of restaurants . The condo is spacious and has every amenity. We loved our time here and will be back again!
Rick from Salt Lake city on 10/31/2012 said:
This stay in the condo at the plantation at princeville was just what the doctor order. We had a great time and the weather was amazingly beautiful (no rain). The location was outstanding and the condo was very clean and perfect for all of us that were there. We travel to hawaii quite a bit and would enjoy and recommend other to stay there in princeville. Thanks Kristen for your help with all you did to make our stay fantastic. Mahalo and aloha. Rick
Recent aug 2012 Stay in Princeville
John Z from Northern NJ on 09/09/2012 said:
I am very pleased with the immaculate and beautiful condo we had a chance to stay in. It had everything you could possibly need in a vacation home. Washer, dryer, quiet, tv, wi-fi etc. Also, nearby was a variety of fine food, shopping for the necessities, dining, a post office and 2 banks. Instructions, though many, were clear and everything was as it should be. I understand that we were in someone's home, so there was a need to do things in order to preserve the contents in a manner consistant with those of a guest. The directions were clear, but the lack of street lights make finding the correct roads a bit difficult without GPS. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Plantation at Princeville to anyone looking for a great vacation experience in Kauai. jz/NJ
Hardy from Oregon on 04/30/2012 said:
We loved the condo. It worked perfectly for three couples - we each also had our own bathrooms. The kitchen was adequately supplied with all we needed to prepare meals. We loved the covered deck - we ate outside even when it rained. We wished we had a view of the beach and were a little closer, but a view of the ocean was within a 5 minute walk. We were grateful for all the beach equipment that was available to us in the garage. A beautiful, well kept area.
I felt at home in the condo.
Ohio Visitors from Columbus, Ohio on 04/22/2012 said:
The condo was spacious and comfortable. It was close to the pool. Sitting on the lanai was a delight. The decor was well chosen.
Spacious and great location!
Elise from Calgary on 03/04/2012 said:
We were only here for 4 days but the condo was excellent. The kitchen was really well equipped. The location was great, so close to Hanelai and all the convenient shops in Princeville. We were nervous as we had never stayed in a condo before, but we are so glad we did...the $500 savings from not choosing the hotel really helped solidify our choice as well :)
retired from Black Creek, BC on 02/25/2012 said:
The place had all the ammenities of home, even a garage complete with pool and beach items. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and such. A very comfortable unit. We kept our windows and doors open so the breeze could blow through. It is very centraly located to Princeville and we did many day trips with our car all over the Island. We used the pool a few times but the water was cold. Sometimes we cooked our meals and other times ate out or we would buy a bunwich and have a picnic. We loved all the lovely plants and flowers, truly a garden paradise! The roosters take a little getting used to (earplugs would help). I guess it was the season for ants as we had a few to contend with. We will return!!
Everything we wanted and more!
loved it! from Seattle, WA on 11/12/2011 said:
This condo was beautiful, we walked in and it truly had everything we wanted and more, the size was bigger than expected, the lanai was perfect, kitchen/bathroom supplies well stocked, and everything was so clean and well kept. What a surprise it was to open the garage and to find all of the beach supplies any beach goer needed; chairs, boogie boards, kids toys, umbrellas,etc, it made our beach trips so much more exciting! The condo was close to so many attractions; we would definitely stay here again and have already spread the word to our family and friends about how great our stay was here!
Great time all around
jc from Los Angeles on 07/17/2011 said:
We had a fabulous time at the condo. Everything was clean and well cared for. We ate breakfast on the balcony everyday, walked to the beach, and really relaxed. Thank you again!
Our best stay yet!
New vacation home found from Eatonville, WA on 06/01/2011 said:
We have two teenagers and one youngster and have stayed in Kauai a few other times, always in a hotel. This option has become crowded as they have grown. Everything you read and see about this place is true. We stopped by Costco and Foodland on the way in from the airport to stock up. We used the grill all but two nights. The kids had a wonderful time out in the pool. The condo is maybe 5-10 minutes from some of the greatest beaches on the North shore. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner out on the lanai. For what we received, this is by far the best value. My husband wakes very early and it was great for him to have additional space without waking the rest of us. The beds were very comfortable and the linens/towels were great quality. After finding alohacondos.com online and spending quite a bit of time comparing our options, we felt this was the very best choice. We felt as comfortable here as in our own home. I have already recommended the website to a few people and will continue to do so. If you don't mind saving money cooking your own meals, why would you stay in a hotel? For the time we spent here, we had everything we needed. The kids loved the snorkeling gear and boogie boards. Aside from the food, we did not need to purchase anything additional to enjoy our stay here. It was private and quiet and the residents were very nice. We come to Kauai every year and we have a found our new home away from home.
Excellent place to stay in Kauai
Sam from California on 05/06/2011 said:
This place have everything you need for comfortable stay (except the ocean view)
Wonderful stay in wonderful condo
Kath T from San Francisco on 03/01/2011 said:
The condo was large (3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, full kitchen, table for 6 for outdoor dining, indoor breakfast area, living room, laundry), well equipped (it was easy to cook a lot of meals in the condo rather than being forced to eat in restaurants all the time), well located (beautiful resort grounds and pool, near golf course with long running track, shopping nearby with supermarket, pharmacy etc.), near the beach in Hanalei (very family friendly beach and our kids aged 8 and 6 loved boogie boarding). The team at aloha Vacations were very helpful, for example, in finding us a doctor when my husband had flu. I've already recommended this resort and condo to friends looking for a vacation on Kauai.
Meryl from Sarasota,Florida on 02/02/2011 said:
My husband and I along with our daughter, her husband and 4 children spent a delightful time at Condo 1222. We found everything we needed and the condo certainly met our needs, The breeze was so nice we never had to use the a/C.at all. We thoroughly enjoyed eating on the lanai and loved the open feeling of the condo. With 4 adults and 4 kids, 3 bathrooms were nice to have. Wished there was a screen door on the entry so we could have gotten more of the breeze in but other than that it was great!
very nice relaxing stay

They had a lot of things for the beach and many snorkels. We had a great vacation and really recomend this place.
