This condominium is privately owned and you are renting directly from the homeowner who's company name is GN Piegari Jr, dba Kauai Condo Rentals (as will appear on your credit card statement).  Therefore reservations are not transferable between units.

This condominium if professionally managed by Vacation Realty Hawaii 808 822 0272.  Your on-island contact is Graeme D. Merrin, RB, ABR, GRI. 808-651-7211  graeme@graememerrin.com

A $500 security deposit is required with this reservation and we may process a credit card authorization in that amount prior to your arrival.  A charge may result for damage to the condo, missing contents or for exceeding the stated number of overnight guests.  If a guest arrives without notice earlier than the scheduled check in time of 3pm or fails to depart by the required 10am checkout time, their security deposit which is on hold will be charged in full.  Our units hold very busy time lines and the failure to leave on time can cost money and schedule disasters.  Likewise arriving earlier than scheduled can disrupt the busy cleaning flow, cause mishaps and confusions with the housekeeping staff.  Damage in excess of the $500.00 security deposit will additionally be charged to your credit card commensurate with such damage.  Guests are responsible for reporting any damages immediately to the on-island contact Graeme D. Merrin, RB, ABR, GRI, 808 651-7211 or alohacondos@vacationrealtyhawaii.com.

The reservation deposit is nonrefundable; however if a cancellation is made more than 60 days prior to the check-in date, the full reservation deposit may be applied to a new set of reservation dates in the same condo beginning anytime up to one year from the original check-in date (subject to availability). Cancellations made within 30 days of the check-in date results in loss of all payments.

A maximum of 6 guests may occupy a 3 bedroom unit for the regular nightly rate.   $15 per additional guest over the normal occupancy number is charged per day (any more than the 6 guest who can sleep in the beds) for those units that have additional accommodations.  This charge covers our additional expenses in laundry, electricity, and the setting-up/breaking-down of sleeper sofas or air mattresses.  Guests are obligated to disclose the actual number of occupants prior to arrival.

At no time should any one sleep on sofas other than sleeper sofas that are opened up and have sheets on them.

A pack-n-play and high chair are available at no extra charge, but must be requested via email to alohacondos@vacationrealtyhawaii.com at the time of booking or with reasonable notice prior to arrival.

Stays of more than 10 days have additional mandatory interim-cleaning.  For example if you stay for 11 nights you would have an interim and a final outclean.  If you stay for 21 nights you would have two interim cleans and one outclean.

Check-in time is 3 PM and checkout time is 10 AM.  Please be certain to plan your arrival and departure times accordingly.   We have a very tight cleaning schedule and the housekeeper will likely arrive at 10:00 to begin the clean.  Extra charges may apply if you have not departed at 10:00 as we have to compensate the housekeeper for wait-time.  If you need an early check-in or late check-out we recommend you book an extra night.

Cleaning fees are based on a 5 hour clean.  If the condo is left excessively messy and it can’t be made rent-ready in 5 hours, guests will be charged $37.50/hr for the additional cleaning.

We do our very best to have the units clean and in proper working order for your arrival.  Should there be any cleaning or maintenance problems please call your on-island contact at your first opportunity.  We require the opportunity to rectify any problems and will do so in a reasonable amount of time.

SUNTAN LOTIONS, AFTER-SUN LOTIONS AND RELATED PRODUCTS LEAVE BLEACH-LIKE STAINS IN FABRICS.  PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH OUR UPHOLSTERY AND BEDSPREADS.  We use white towels and white sheets for this reason, but it is not practical to have white sofas and bedspreads.  Please shower before getting into bed, and please sit on a towel if you have sun products on your skin and you want to sit on the upholstery.  Wash hands thoroughly after applying sun products to avoid accidentally damaging fabrics.  Guests are responsible for damage to linens and upholstery from products they use.    There is a $25 charge for a ruined towel. 

Smoking is strictly prohibited in the condo , on the lanais or anywhere in the Nihilani complex.  It is a non-smoking community.

Central air conditioning is available in all units free of charge.  Please note some units have temperature controls to prevent the a/c from being set below 75 degrees.  Please know that Kauai has the most expensive electricity on the island and condo electric bills run between $450 and $900 a month.  Please help us to conserve electricity and keep our rates down by turning off the a/c when you are not home, keeping blinds closed during the day to keep the condo cool, and keeping windows and sliding doors closed when you are running the a/c.

We provide sheets for each bed and two bath towels per stated guest.  There is no daily maid service, but you are welcome to use the washer/dryer in the unit. If you have an interim clean included with your reservation we will launder the linens during the clean.

We also provide a reasonable amount of amenities such as toilet paper, paper towels, tissue, soaps and detergents for your use.  Should you run out, you are responsible for purchasing additional products for the duration of your stay, unless you have an interim clean at which time we will replenish those supplies.

Please make sure that all keys, towels and remotes are left behind at the condo when you depart. We charge a $50.00 replacement fee for each lost key and a $75 replacement fee for a lost garage door remote. Generally these are lost because they are left in the rental car, so please check your car carefully before you leave for the airport.

Keep indoor furniture indoors, and outdoor furniture outdoors.  There is a $50 fee if furniture needs to be moved back to its original place upon your departure.  For example, if you move a large glass table, the management company will have to hire someone to go help the housekeeper put it back.

No pets of any kind are allowed.

The illegal presence, possession or use of non-prescription drugs or other controlled substances is not permitted anywhere at Nihilani.

The town home was wonderful. It was stocked with everything we would need. The majority of our experience was positive. The 2 downsides were the town home community is not kid friendly. Many of the other owners were very vocal about their displeasure with the children in the being at the pool, even though they were following all the rules. The only other problem with unit 27a is the very uncomfortable beds. They are extremely hard.

We had a full house and enjoyed the space that this rental gave us. It was well equipped with beach towels, boogie boards and beach chairs. The beds were comfortable and on each lanai there were lounge chairs to sit and enjoy the weather and scenery. We even had some friendly family of chickens visit us each day. We had a wonderful gift package waiting for us that welcomed us when we arrived. We would consider returning. Mahalo!

Thank you for responding to our request for your feedback on the unit 27a at Nihilani.

We are so glad you found the unit to your liking and it is a very spacious unit but the reasonable pricing does allow for even just two guests to want to book.  However it can accommodate up to 8 people making it a great option for a larger group also.

Thank you for mentioning our promptness in helping with your brief issue with the internet.  We do respond to any concerns and issues and accommodate as soon as we can.

We do hope you can return again soon!

We had a 9 day stay in this home. I would say that overall the house was incredible. When we arrived there was a very small issue that was quickly fixed with a phone call in the middle of the night to the contact person. The home Was clean and up to standard. Had many supplies readily available which made shopping cheaper. Didn’t have to buy basics such as laundry soap, toilet paper, paper towel, garbage bags, cooking essentials). Kitchen very well stocked. Nice beach chairs available, beach toys and cooler. We fit 2 jeeps in the garage. Beds were comfortable. The space was perfect for us with 2 families each with 2 kids. I would highly recommend and stay again for sure! My only request would be to have a vacuum or broom available to keep the home tidy on a long stay with kids. There was a little handheld vacuum but no charger found.

We enjoy the house. We come back to it several times a year, if we can.

It has the ammenities of home. We know what is offered and as a result we are able to travel with confidence. We will have what we need and enjoy ourselves.

What would help is a mop to clean the floor, dishcloths for dishes. The cooler needs to be replaced as it is missing the pull handle.

This place was great. We had our kids come with our grandbabies and enjoyed the condo very much. The house cleaning could be better though. Floors were dirty and twin beds bedding was dirty. Don't like dirty. We mopped the floor and washed the bedding once we got there. But other than that it was a marvelous place to stay.

Manager Response


Mahalo for taking the time to post a review.  We are glad you found the townhome to be great and you enjoyed your stay there.  

We are surprised that you felt the housekeeping could have been better as we do take lots of time getting the units prepared for our guests and set our standards high.  We really wish you would have called us right away so that we could have sent someone to address any concerns.

We of course put fresh linens on the beds before the guests arrive but the washer is there to use if you ever want to refresh the linens during your stay.

Thank you again for your comments and feedback.

We had an amazing, peaceful stay in this condo. It may have been the first time I've traveled and slept really well the first night, and all nights afterwards. We even left the sliding door open to the patio for a breeze and to hear the palm trees. The condo is very nice, new and decorated well. It is well stocked too! I would return and stay here again in a heartbeat.

We enjoyed the 2 car garage, pool (although a little cold) and all the beach supplies. We have 2 small children and had to remind them to be quiet a lot- but that was still ok! I would live here if I could!

We recently stayed in this unit and had a great time. The unit is located in a quiet area with lots of access to walking paths, short drive to beach and sightseeing. The caretaker was helpful when we had issues with the dishwasher. He had someone look at it ASAP and fix it. The pool area was nice but I would have preferred warmer water but it isn't too bad. Hot tub was nice. The great things about our unit that I loved was the washer and dryer (Soap was supplied), blender, big beach towels, ice maker, beach supplies--cooler, chairs, boogie boards, sand toys, umbrellas, etc.). The negatives were; chairs were a bit tired, outdoor furniture also very tired, and would have been nice if there was another tv in the unit. All minor complaints that I wouldn't let stop you from booking this unit.

The complex as a whole is very well maintained and centrally located within Princeville (short walks to St Regis, Queens Bath, Hideways Beach, and Sealodge Beach).

Management was great to work with prior to our stay and arranged to have a pak-n-play set up for us prior to our arrival for our toddler.

We had a great family vacation!The condo was large, well maintained property. It met our needs, family of 8, and provided sufficient space: beds, table/chairs, sofa/chairs to accommodate our family needs.

The house offered a great place to meet as a family as well as offered lots of options for private moments, as required. Fantastic lanais for morning coffee or evening read!

We were pleasantly surprized by the care and attention the owner paid to vacation needs of families. There was sufficient activity related equipment for all ages, beach chairs, snorkels, pool noodles, boogie boards, and coolers. Due to our numbers, we required additional beach towels, and they provided them.

We will certainly request this property again.

Thank you for your feedback for Nihilani 27a. Thank you for mentioning that the condo was great as it is very spacious and well equipped for a great vacation. It sounds like you might have had children which typically is not a problem. All complexes do have rules and regulations just as Nihilani does. There are quiet hours which are very reasonable and apply after 10pm.  The pool rules are in place for the children’s safety which I am sure all will want to abide by.

We would rent in this community again. We are not sure that we would rent this particular unit. We were contacted the day before we left asking an exact time of arrival so housekeeping would have a better schedule. Ok, no problem but then we were emailed again and asked when we were leaving as well. We always stick to the posted arrival and departure schedule but working in Property Management I understand the need to scheduling. This email was sent while on vacation. This again was not really an issue but what bothered us was, one day in the middle of our vacation we came back to the rental to find a maintenance man in the living room installing a new tv. We were not notified that he was coming! This was uncomfortable because we had a toddler that needed a nap and we were trying to get him inside and to bed. Not to mention that we didn't know who this man was and were not notified. In fact we still don't know who he was. He was nice enough but it made us uncomfortable. He also took the housekeeping key with him for a few days and then came back later the week, knocked on the door to tell my daughter he needed to put it back in the box. The community is well kept and the rental was spacious. There are some items that need replacing such as some of the frayed rugs, towels and pots and pans. A lot of the dishes are also chipped. We would stay in this area again just probably not with this rental agency or unit. Not so much because the unit was in bad shape but because we never really felt comfortable after the maintenance intrusion.

It felt like home!

For a fraction of the price of staying at the Westin or the st Regis down the road, you get tons of space, a washer and dryer, a full kitchen, etc. The only slight complaint was that the unit does not get much sunlight. If a/c is a must - then this is the place to stay.

We appreciate when our guests take the time to give us their reviews and we are so happy to hear how accommodating this unit was for you. It is a very spacious unit and very well appointed with all that one might need for their vacation stay. Your comparison to other resorts in the area is also appreciated as the value does not even compare with all that you get in this condo. The fully equipped kitchen for cooking and the beach accessories that are supplied are just some of the benefits that increase the value. Mahalo for mentioning the immaculate condition of the unit as our housekeepers do work very hard at keeping things to a higher standard. Thank you again for your review and we hope you will choose to stay with us again.

Very clean, roomy and comfortable townhome!

We stayed in Nihilani 27a for two weeks in August 2014 during two hurricanes. The property was perfect and staff very helpful in preparing for the storms that did not eventually hit the island. My wife and I traveled with our two children, 8 and 10 years old, and my mother, 71 years old. The town home was very well cared for and clean. It did not feel like a rental property. Also, the location in the Nihilani property was very quiet. The cul de sac seemed to carry more noise and this property was on the interior away from the cul de sac and pool. However, the pool was an easy walk and did not have to walk on the road to get there. Only one bed room faced the busy Ka Haku Road that leads to the St. Regis. You could hear some road noise but the rest of the house was protected from that direction.The surrounding property was also well cared for and nice to walk around.

We used the kitchen heavily and could have used a fry pan larger than 8". Otherwise, we had no complaints. Well stocked kitchen and beach amenities. Nihilani 27a was relaxing, clean. It was also wonderful to have a laundry room on the second floor. We would stay again without hesitation. Thank you to the owners and property managers for a wonderfully relaxing stay in Princeville. We are looking forward to our 4th trip back to the island soon.

Thank you for your kind review for the unit 27a at the Nihilani at Princeville complex. It is a very spacious and accommodating unit and we try to have everything available to make our guests comfortable. During time of hurricanes and storm approaching the island we want to make our guests feel comfortable by keeping in contact and letting them know we are here for questions and concerns. We have taken your comment seriously with the need for more frying pans and have since bought three new frying pans in a variety of sizes. We take our comments and take action. We hope that you once again will come back and let us accommodate you in your stay in paradise. Mahalo!

This place was amazing! We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Kauai - from sand toys, beach chairs, coolers to snorkel gear! Everything was well maintained and functioning without problems. If I had to point out specific details that needed minor improvement, it would have been the TV. The remote control wasn't working, so we had to manually change the channel. And the DVD player played our movie in black and white. We had no idea had to change it to colored.

I have absolutely nothing negative to say. This place was everything it was advertised to be. Very roomy, well-stocked. Thanks especially for the pool toys, snorkeling gear, etc. We stayed for 9 nights (2 adults, 2yr old toddler, and mother-in-law), and we couldn't be happier. The pool is great, and even has a separated, shaded upper section that is about 4 inches deep and great for infants/toddlers to walk and splash in. The grills at the pool, and the kitchen/dining area of the townhome, are great for home-cooked meals, which is especially helpful, since there's not really anyplace to eat in Princeville (go 5 minutes down the road to Hanalei for some great food). Overall, this rental was an unbelievable value, and we will reserve it again if we return.

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.

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.

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...)

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!!

We spent 3 weeks in December 2010 at 27a and found it most relaxing.

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.

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 ! ;-)
