Very fortunate to have found this ground floor unit that opens up to Queens Bath. Thoroughly enjoyed our morning visits from a Mother Nene and her 3 goslings. I'm sure they wanted some snacks but that was not in the cards. Would stay here again, loved opening up the large slider and having the entire unit filled with the sounds of waves and wind!

My husband and I stayed here with our daughter, her husband and our teenage granddaughter. We found the condo to be very spacious, clean and comfortable for all of us. It has a wonderful view and we enjoyed the outdoor sitting area. It was an adventure to hike down to Hideaway Beach —a very lovely sandy beach. The condo is ideally located for visiting the North Shore. Some reviewers have commented on the musty smell. That is true—but it didn’t bother us. We know that comes with its ideal waterfront location. We were very happy and recommend the condo. It was ideal for our family.

Great condo!

We really enjoyed staying here. It was such a beautiful location and the views were awesome. We had a few things that needed to be looked at and management was quick to respond and help out and the maintenance guy who came was very helpful. With that said, I do have some thoughts that I wish others would've added in their reviews: - To unlock the door you have to turn it to the left, not right like it would seem. That info would've saved us some time and frustration haha. - The first night we got there it was really hot and we were nervous because it didn't seem like the air conditi...

The location and view are incredible. However, the condo is very dated and all the bedding smelled like mildew and the pillows were stained. The kitchen was large and had everything we needed. The Nene would walk by every evening which was very cute. But this place needs some updating and a deep clean.

I agree with Bridget’s review of condo 113. We stayed at 113 in the beginning of 9/2019 and her review descriptions were spot on accurate. Pro’s Air conditioning worked well with AC units installed in the kitchen and each of the bedrooms. The weather was uncomfortably hot even by the ocean so the AC at this condo was a life saver. Would highly recommend booking a unit with AC. Location of the condos is fantastic. We walked to Queens bath from the condo which was about a 15 min walk to the start of the trail. Hideaways beach path is literally next to the pool and a few steps away fro...

We could not have been more pleased with this unit. First, it is HUGE. Much larger than the pictures depict, especially the kitchen. The kitchen is so well stocked with everything we needed to cook. The view is spectacular. The location of the unit provides great privacy. The pool is small but appeared to be recently remodeled and was never crowded. One afternoon we had it to ourselves. We loved the location, walking distance to three great beaches and easy drive to a shopping center. I highly recommend this unit and look forward to staying again.

We visited Kauai for a family wedding, and loved the island and the condo location in Princeville. Compared to the houses/condos others in the wedding party had rented, this place was run-down and crying out for refurbishment. For the price, you'd be better off renting elsewhere. The condo faces a different direction to the first 2 blocks at Puu Poa which face the bay. We knew this from the photos and expected this, but it did look as though you could walk out of the lanai and around to the pool area and view the sunset etc: you can't - there's a locked gate and vegetation preventing a...
