We have been visiting Shearwater for the past several years. The staff is very accommodating and eager to help. Mr. Hirata their new GM has successfully turned the resort to a 5star accommodation. We travel all over the World, and Shearwater is one of our top destinations!

The Wyndham Shearwater in Princeville Hawaii offers outstanding ocean views especially from the 3rd floor units. There are other Wyndham properties in Princeville that have nicer and larger pools and spas but none have the same incredible views. Very clean units with lots of space. One bit of advice if you are traveling with another couple is to verify the... More

My family and I took a little vacation to the Shearwater on Kaua'i. It was such a fantastic resort. The staff was so very accommodating and friendly. They made special accommodations in our room for my family. They even helped us by reserving a complimentary room for our late check out. Our room itself was amazing. It had two huge... More

Thank you very much for your review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the property. I hope that the wedding went well.

Very pleased with the accommodations at this rental. Even the 2nd bedroom was very large with two full size beds. Had everything you would need if you decide to eat in one night. Very quiet, except for the occasional rooster crowing in the morning. Be warned, there is no air conditioning, which we were concerned about, but after the first... More

Pros: The units have views that range from spectacular to awesomely spectacular. The 2 bedroom units are large, well-stocked, and beautifully decorated. We had a few very minor maintenance issues that were promptly corrected. Cons: The sales/welcoming staff are aggressive about pushing Wyndham products/presentation. They hold you hostage on check-in not wanting to give you the parking pass until you... More

We stayed here from August 8 thru August 15th. We arrived about the same time Hurricane Iselle hit the island of Kauai. It was about an hour drive from Lihue airport to Princeville, and we encountered some strong gusts of wind and heavy rain but nothing really serious.
