“Roomy with Great Mountain Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

person found this review helpful

Three couples, all family, stayed here for two weeks in June/July 2012 and we were pretty satisfied with the unit. With the two master bedrooms on the bottom floor and another bedroom and bath up top we all had our own space! The tall ceilings on the top living area really kept it cool with just the windows open- we hardly used the air conditioning at all. The furnishings were comfortable and the kitchen was nice and large with a good refrigerator. There is a small lanai that you can watch the mountains and waterfalls in the morning with a cup of coffee- ahh! Since it is also on one of the Prince golf course tees you can watch that as well. The few minor things that needed attention got it pretty soon, though the blinds in our room stayed broken for our stay. This unit is located in the Princeville area of Kauai, which means that you will have rain, but that's what makes it so gorgeous up there. It is a quick drive to all the north shore beaches and Hanalei town- eat at Hanalei Gourmet and Bar Acuda. These units share a nice little pool that is fun to relax in until the kids come! Free in unit wi-fi, though it is on the bottom floor and it is hard to get a decent signal on the lanai or dining room. Our one caveat is that we purchased this through a "by owner" website we use all the time and this unit is more like a timeshare as far as amenities go. Usually with that site you stay in a place where if someone left sunscreen or food items, you are welcome to them and you know the stuff you leave will fall into appreciative hands. Here you are given starter items, such as paper towels and toilet paper, but you are expected to purchase the rest yourself; it must get cleaned out after every visit. Which is fine as long as you know to shop for that. The kitchen was sparse as far as cookware and a lot of the pots and pans didn't seem to have lids. Some minor night noise from the neighbor that isn't attached- gaming marathons and loud music on the weekends (I was in the middle master and never heard it, but the others did). Overall, for the price I don't think you could find a nicer unit on the north shore.
