This condominium is privately owned and you are renting directly from the homeowner who's company name is Nihilani Properties LLC (as will appear on your credit card statement).  Therefore reservations are not transferable between units.

This condominium is 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 $250.00 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, 808 822 0272 or graeme@graememerrin.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.

GUESTS ARE RESPONSILBLE FOR FOLLOWING THE HOUSE RULES OF NIHILANI.  Violation of the rules can result in fines, and guests are responsible for paying those fines.  In severe cases if guests are permanently removed from the condo and from the grounds of Nihilani by the homeowner, property manager, resident manager or the police the guest will not be refunded for rent paid for unused nights, even if the guest is prohibited from returning.

This place was amazing and we felt that the house met and exceeded all of our expectations. They had everything we needed especially for the baby and that was so incredible to have forethought. I hope that anyone looking for a place to stay will consider this place. Everything was very accessible and the customer service and attention to detail was amazing. we received notices for upcoming vacation and we just were so blessed to have stayed here.

Beautiful and comfortable condo. Great linens, full size washer and dryer, and nicely stocked kitchen. We informed the property manager that we were staying with two small children and they set up the unit with a portable crib, highchair, and basket of small toys prior to our arrival. The complex is close to great walking trails and an easy walk to a great playground, shops, and restaurants. Beach access is a little more difficult, parking for the nearest beaches is very limited. The downside is that the complex itself has extremely strict guidelines that we were not aware of at booking (also, this unit has a very strict cancelation policy) and permanent residents behind this unit were clearly upset to have children in the complex. Our 2 year olds were unable to enjoy anytime outside the unit without being yelled at. I would highly recommend this unit for families without children, but would choose a more “kid-friendly” complex for families traveling with young children. The garage does easily fit two full-size cars, so don’t let the parking guidelines deter you (we were concerned after reading the parking rules sent with our reservation confirmation, but had no problems).

Our stay was very comfortable. The only thing that would have been nice would have been a bedroom on the main floor. I had a stroke a year ago and getting upstairs was a little difficult. I managed though! We (all 8 of us) were very comfortable. Thank you.

Spent weeks looking for a decent place to stay while on Kauai. Found that most places won't book for 3 day stays but this one was available and I'm glad we got it. The house itself is beautiful inside and most accommodating. The garage was full of toys for the kids and anything you could need for the beach. The beds were perfect and there was plenty of room for everyone. There were lots of rules to follow, but if you are a civilized human being, then it really isn't that big of a deal. Also one of the oy houses I could find with a/c, coming from Arizona it was a must for us.

Best place I have ever stayed in on Kauai. Been there 10 times on the island but this was the best. Over the top. Off the chain!! Everything a family could need as far as beach items for the whole family. Double garage was great and led right into the town home for easy access after shopping. Will not stay anywhere else after our experience. This is the place!

We vacationed in Townhome 3a for a week with 3 children (12, 15 and 16) and had a wonderful time! The condo was spacious for the 5 of us and very easy to navigate in/out. The garage was wonderfully stocked with beach chairs, snorkel gear, and much more - definitely a bonus of the rental. The pool/hot tub were a short walk and never busy. We would definitely stay at Nihilani again, and Townhome 3a was perfect for our family.

The good:roomy condo in desirable location. Location within the complex is ideal, very quiet and private. Nice modern amenities. Lovely poster bed in the master. Hardwood floors provide a nice open feeling.

Could use improvement: Washer/ dryer could use replacing, kept crashing at the spin cycle. Beds very comfy, however the topper in the master is bit too soft for our liking. Microwave is a bit difficult to decipher for basic use. Futon coach in family room is not the most comfortable. In general the chairs in around the dining table were really soft and not the very comfy.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay at this place again!

Unfortunately this woman should not live near anyone especially at a condo community.

We waivered at sharing our review because then the secret will be out. What a great location! As a family we decided to visit Kauai. We found the rental on line and booked right away because of the great price and close location to golfing, a market, coffee shop, restaurants and a park. If you are looking for a bit of serenity and a small town feel this is the location. The condo was well appointed with everything you could need or want. The garage is full of beach chairs, beach mats and kids toys which were used daily. It felt like a home away home. The reviews regarding the couch needing replaced are valid as it is quite uncomfortable. The dining table also looks well used but we were okay with that having 2 grandkids along with us. The condo has been "lived in" which gives it the homey feel. We loved it! So much so we tried to book for 2018 but it wasn't available for all of our dates. Any questions or issues we had during our stay were promptly replied to. It was the best customer service that we have had in the 20 years we have been travelling. Mahalo!

Thank you for the great review as we do appreciate it.  We are happy that the condo served your needs and made you feel at home.  This certainly is our goal for the guests.  Thank you for your feedback with the furniture and it will be noted with the owner.  We hope we can accommodate you again in the future.  We also appreciate the great comments about the customer service and we are glad we are there to help.

Condo was very nice. A few very minor problems, but a real nice place. This was a family vacation of 11, so we rented two condos (3a and 24c) since both were right next to each other, though in different buildings. We were very satisfied with this condo.

We, however, did encounter some problems with the tenant across the yard in 24b who was not happy with any noises at all, so we had to tiptoe around a bit when playing outside. He was a real jerk.

Manager Response


Thank you for the great rating for unit 3a at Nihilani.  We are sorry to hear that the neighbor caused you some problems with noise levels.  We did have the on site management speak with him and give him a warning so hopefully that will not be a problem from this point.  We have had a few guest since your departure and we have not had any complaints.

We hope you can come again.

There were beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach umbrellas, and everything we could possibly need to enjoy all that Kauai had to offer. Items in the kitchen were labeled, allowing us to use them correctly and return them to their proper places. The AC worked perfectly and once the house was cooled off, it stayed cool. I would love to stay again!

Nice enough place

Reviewed by T.G.

Date 06/06/2017

The condo was nice with a good amount of space. The pool and hot tub were both really nice to have within the complex. The dryer took a really, really long time to dry -- would take 2 hours to dry a load of beach towels so that became annoying. Also, be aware that if you are bringing children this might not be the best place. One of our kids was sitting on the patio before 8 am playing with a balloon and someone else yelled at them. Later we got a highlighted rule about "noise" before 8 am. She wasn't being that loud but that made us uncomfortable and especially with kids waking up early for the time change it made it rather unpleasant. In the future, I probably wouldn't book this again for a family due to that unpleasant experience alone. I can understand needing to be mindful of noise and neighbors. But seriously she was sitting on the patio with a balloon. It wasn't that big a deal. Also, the extra fees really add up. I feel like they nickel and dime you. Extra fees, extra fees per person above a certain amount, a $300 cleaning fee, etc... It starts to add up. Also the kitchen was not well stocked at all. We barely had enough forks. There were no plastic utensils. There was a lot of boogie boards and beach gear so that was nice. The couch in the living room is really uncomfortable. Didn't make it a great place to lounge.

Manager Response


Thank you for posting a review for the townhome 3a at Nihilani.  We are glad you found the unit to be nice and spacious.  

We will look into the dryer but sometimes if they are the new energy efficient units they do take longer.  

We apologize for a neighbor that was complaining to you.  There are of course quiet hours but they are not designed for regular noise levels but related more towards parties and exceptional noise levels.  We will have the property manager in the complex speak to the neighbors.

The fees are all disclosed before you even book the unit and are all very typical for whereever you might go with vacation rentals.  You must have seen the wrong numbers as the cleaning fee is 234.36 in your account plus tax as this is a large unit.

We will have the housekeeper staff look at the flatware to see about purchasing some to restock.

Mahalo again for the feedback.

We were there with another family in the same unit (4 adults, 4 children) for a week in February, and had a wonderful experience. The home was clean, spacious, and everything worked great. We would stay there again! The only very minor detail that would be nice for the next guest would be to supply instructions for microwave. It seemed to be an older unit, and it took us quite a bit of trial and error to figure out how to use it. There were no instructions. But other than that one very small issue,,,which wasn't an issue really at all, but just more of a comment, we had a fantastic stay.

There were several light bulbs out, there should be some instructions on how to operate the microwave, it was very unusual, and I felt that the couch in the living room was uncomfortable and provided awkward seating. Having said this I want to say that everything else was wonderful and very nicely appointed, the beds were super comfortable, the beach towels were nice and thick, the grounds and pool area were lovely and we had a wonderful vacation.

We appreciate any feedback we can get on our condos in hope to make them the best they can be. We are so happy to hear you did enjoy your stay and had a wonderful vacation.  It is always our goal to make our guests want to come back.

Our housekeepers do check of bulbs that have gone out and replace them as they see it.  If you would have called us we could have come and replaced those for you.  

With furnishing, it is always a very personal taste that is considered in comfort and design.  Usually the sectional seating does provide a comfortable flow though.

Thank you again for taking the time to post!

We used to live in Kauai and actually lived in the Nihilani Condos. We read a few of the reviews about this property and were apprehensive but the pictures seemed great and had a good feeling about it. It exceeded all our expectations. The one poor review was so exaggerated. I'm a pretty picky person and I love, loved the place. It was perfect for our family. Very clean and had everything we needed. We traveled with our 6 month old and I was nervous but I felt at home. I was concerned about using pack n play and high chair but they were clean! My husband and brother n law played with my niece in the pool everyday and we did our grocery shopping at foodland and made breakfast everyday and was close to Lapperts to get an evening ice cream. It was also nice to do laundry when needed. We will most definitely return to this condo again in the near future. Mahalo

We stayed there with another couple so the lay out of the condo and the two king size beds were great! I truly feel though the condo needs some serious updates. The guest bathroom upstairs has mold on the wooden blinds and the smell alone was horrible! Felt like I should hold my breath while showering. And I know the closet in the master has drawers for clothing there are no drawers of any kind in either of the two remaining bedrooms and that is pretty inconvenient. The kitchen was nice but the couch needs removed and something less stained and saggy put in in the living area. I've stayed at many rentals so I do realize rentals get lots of wear and tear but this is now excessively worn! We have stayed at 24c in nihilani and it was slightly better but I think I thought the furniture was getting close to an update also. Another problem I had was I questioned amount of hair dryers in condo prior to arriving and was told two. Nope just one, didn't end up being an issue but I think maybe the condo should be looked at, and the scattered stains on the walls throughout the condo was also odd! I also saw a cockroach in kitchen but only one so I didn't call. I realize it's Hawaii! But with the above said I love princeville area, and have plans on returning soon. Just hoping a few updates can happen as Nihilani is also a wonderful area! I just wonder how bad it has to get before updates are made? If the updates were made this would be a ten on a scale of 1-5!

There were two families sharing this town home for about 2 weeks - we had a great time! Plenty of space for everyone and were appreciative of the amenities included for our use. Overall the home was clean and well cared for; just a couple of minor items which needed fixing (bed/bath door locks, 2 upstairs windows, en suite bathroom sink and shower not draining well, dining chairs ) but these didn't impede on our stay.Pool was a hit with the kids; hot tub was great too. Would have been nicer to have the BBQ closer to the place (the 2 communal ones are in the pool area).

Would highly recommend staying here - and look forward to re-booking for our future trip back to paradise!

Fourth Stay and Awesome as Ever!

This was our fourth time staying at Nilina 3A and it was as awesome as ever. We just love it and always feel so comfortable, like a home away from home. The condo has everything you could think of and more...beach towels, beach chairs, scuba equipment, highchairs for the babies, a pack and play, toys and books, and movies...too much to mention. I also realized it has an amenity that I have been taking for granted-air conditioning. The rest of our family stayed in another condo nearby us and they had to pay an extra daily fee to use the air conditioning. At condo 3A it is included. I just can't say enough good things about this place. It is truly a Hawaiian home away from home.

We had a short 2-night stay at the condo. We flew over from Maui for a couple of days to hike the Kalalau Trail. The condo was perfect. It is large and was very clean and well equipped. We considered it a bargain at the price.

We were extremely impressed with this townhome. First, the interior is first class, well designed, tastefully decorated, clean, and very spacious. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. Beds and rooms are all comfortable, and very clean. The location is very convenient, only 5 minutes away to Hanalei Bay and some of the most breathtaking beaches just another 15-20 minutes north/west (Tunnels, Ke'e). Just a few minutes to the Princeville stores and some very good restaurants, as well as the St Regis. St Regis also has a nice public beach, and apparently you may use their free valet parking when accessing this beach. Easy to rent kayaks and surfboards in Hanalei. The common pool area is nice, with a couple BBQ's for use. Limited views in this townhome complex, but it's nice enough and you probably won't be indoors that much anyways. Maybe about an hour drive to Poipu and the West Beaches, but worth the road trip! We can't wait to rent this property again.

Comfortable home in a beautiful setting.

We enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable home. Nearly everything we needed was supplied including some beach toys, towells, chairs, etc. We especially enjoyed sitting on the lanai in the morning, watching the trees blow in the breeze and listening to the birds. The condo was close to great beaches and the shopping was convenient.

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.

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

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.

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.

Manager Response

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 I’m 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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!
