We didn't know that we rented a rent-by-owner unit until checking in. The unit is very spacious and has good supplies for cooking. However, it definitely needs a deep cleaning. It is an old worn unit without AC (we were there in Nov and AC is not necessary).
The hotel is located on the cliff with beautiful view of ocean and has good pools including jacuzzi. It doesn't have direct access to beach.

Aloha Yanyu, and mahalo for your review. We're sorry that you didn't understand that you were staying at a vacation rental but we're glad that you enjoyed the space and amenities. We have scheduled a deep cleaning of the unit. Please note that very few homes on Kauai have air conditioning since the trade winds keep the weather here generally mild; if you need AC, always specify this when you reserve. Princeville is located on a bluff so beach access is limited, but the views are magnificent and beautiful Hanalei Bay is a short drive away. We hope you'll visit again!
