Great View, Terrible ConditionPosted Sep 30, 2013
Pros: The view! We could see the sunrise and sunset from our couch, and watched the Kiluaea Lighthouse after dark.
Cons: The condo is extremely dated and poorly maintained. It needs to be significantly updated.
Location: Hanalei Bay, Kiluaea Lighthouse, Queens Bath, Secret Beach, Princeville Ranch Adventures, Nanea Chocolate Farm Tour
We gave this place 2 stars because of the view, and the view only. The view is picture perfect and magical! But sadly we had nothing but trouble with the condo they gave us. First, lots of things were broken. The clocks didn't work, the bulbs in the lamps were burned out, the blinds wouldn't stay open, you get the picture here. Then as soon as we opened the sliding door, it wouldn't close again, leaving all our belongings vulnerable to theft as soon as we left the condo. Then the icing on the cake - we left one morning to go out to the beach, and when we got back, the carpet in the living room was soaking wet. We hadn't used the dishwasher or the washing machine, and had no idea what had happened. This resulted in them coming and setting up a giant, unseemly, noisy fan in our living room that had to run 24/7 for two days in the middle of our Hawaiian vacation. The repair fellow said that a sock had been lodged in the washing machine (by the previous renters?). The terms from the condo seemed surprisingly Draconian as well. If you leave trash in the condo, they'll charge you $50. If you track in sand, they charge you. There was an exhaustive list of things that would result in extra charges - much longer than anywhere else I've ever stayed.

Beautiful View. Beach NOT accessible to me!!Posted Sep 11, 2013
Pros: Beautiful View!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Cons: Think that is obvious by account of my experience.
Location: Without a car, there is little to do near by. Why do you ask for a review if you won't post anything negative?
No mention of NO air conditioner!! NOT acceptable!! Smelled musty!! Fan in bathroom not adequate!! I would never recommend this place to anyone over 50 or to anyone who has any physical problems at all. Or to anyone who doesn't like their rooms HOT at all times. Hope someone checked the fan over the table. The only "Hotel Staff" I saw were grounds keepers. They were very good!!

Bali Hai!Posted Aug 12, 2013
Pros: The view and location were wonderful. The staff wecoming and informative and had a small private pool and spa for the property
Location: This property is in Princeville with lots of great places to eat, a market, and beaches near by.
This is one of the older Condo's in the area. It was a clean no fills stay with all you would want in a small condo. It is extra for maid service and extra towels which we did not need since our stay was short. However,what it lacked due to age it made up for in the spectacular view! For the price I would reccommend this property to anyone. I would use this property again.

Beautiful condo with easy access to Kuhio HwyPosted Jul 20, 2013
Cons: AC in at least one room.
Beautiful, one story Condo, located on the north side of Kauai in Princeville, gave us a relaxing place to go home to each day. Rental came fully furnished, including a washer/dryer. Quiet neighborhood. Convenient 1-mile walk or drive to a local food market, dining & stores. Only drawback was no AC. While lovely trade winds do most of the cooling, if you need AC, be sure to request that ahead of time.

Pros: Love the open space floor plans.
Cons: This is the north side of the island so generally it is cooler.However these units were not equipped with any air conditioning.
Location: Princeville is the most upscale town on the entire island.
Great value place to stay on the North side of the island.

otherwize, we enjoyed our experience on the islandPosted Feb 14, 2013
Pros: the people of the island, the beaches, and the overall beauty of the island...... B+
Cons: it had a great view and survived the hurricane but was still rundown.......D
Location: fantastic.B+ except the rundown condition of the unit itself, overall C
considering the internet service wasn't fixed for the first 4 days. Then the tv decided to not work. they said it might be replaced before we left and it never showed up. At leased we had a beautiful view of the ocean from the patio. soooo the beauty of the island, the weather and the relaxing attitude of the people across the island was great......

Perfect location, not-so-perfect accomodationPosted Jan 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
-The apartment had a very bad, irritating, moldy smell. Three of six days there was no hot water. The care-takers tried to fix it with not much success. The location is great, the view worth a million dollar.

Our Villa Was An Awful ExperiencePosted Jan 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
These accommodations were the worst I have ever experienced in my many trips to Kauai. The moment we walked in we experienced a strong, musty smell that never went away. There was very little privacy, and we endured constant noise from heavy footsteps in the Villa above us, and from the dogs barking and the neighbors around us. The only positive was the kitchen facilities.
