Spent a wonderful 7 days at the Plantation 122 condo. Beautiful facility that is close to many beaches and wonderful sites on the north shore. Best thing was the ability to get to the other side of the island if per chance there was rain on the north side. Unit was easy to access with all the amenities of home if you want to cook versus eat out. Cool breezes at night let you keep the windows open. Breakfast on the lanai overlooking the golf course and beautiful mountains behind. Great place to stay. K.G. from Kansas

Hi Cindy,Thank you very much, we had a great time and loved the accommodations! You made our stay very comfortable and your service was 5 star. When we visit again we will definitely go through Oceanfront Realty. Thanks. W.B.

This house was awesome(Taro Plantation)! Very spacious, immaculately kept and the privacy provided by the surrounding Taro fields is wonderful. This house blew are high expectations away. A.K.

We really appreciate your consideration. We find working with you for our vacation needs to be an excellent experience. You have done your best to make us feel welcome and taken care of. An extra special note of thanks goes to Donna for helping us yesterday when we locked ourselves out.

Tori and Kelly, We enjoyed a wonderful week at Plantation 1211!  Thanks so much.  We hope to do it again. B.L and P.L. from Arizona

This place (Sealodge E9) is off the hook! Quiet in unit laundry. Almost 180 deg view of ocean inside unit. Property is beautiful and clean. There is a Secret beach trail that’s not too daunting like reviews say. Small but has everything needed for a relaxing stay! Also the last plus is it has top of the line cooking utensils is knives and kitchen is fully equipped if you like to cook.!

I don’t know what to say beyond the fact that this property (Sealodge E9) is perfect for any couple looking to get away from it all on the Garden Isle. The view is its best feature, and we enjoyed breakfast each morning in the corner nook that gave two views of the blue sea; we could see monk seals and spear fishers through the binoculars provided. Views of the moon illuminating the water at night were equally striking. Amenities are all there, from coffee pot to the much-appreciated washer and dryer. Lovely, lovely place. Would like to come back as soon as possible. Thanks!

A truly comfortable house with everything you might need for a Kauai vacation. This is a great place with its proximity to Hanalei where you can swim, paddleboard and surf. It’s close to beaches like Nini beach as well (great for kids and anyone wanting gentle water) and the beaches at the top of the island where the Napaali trail starts. We found the local shopping area really handy, with very good grocery store and related stores very close by. Just down the road, it’s a nightly ritual to watch the sunset at the St. Regis hotel with drink in hand or from a nearby headland, before returning to your dinner at the house. We had a great time here and found we could explore the whole island easily by car. CAN

We had a very relaxing vacation in this beautifully furnished home. Stores, beaches and amenities are all located within easy driving distance.When we came back from the beach we would rinse off in the outdoor shower and enjoy the sun on the lanai in the beautiful private garden. In season, you can snack from the fruit trees.(we had some mangoes) For the evenings that we stayed in, there’s TV, internet, board games & books to enjoy. A quick walk down the road takes you to the spectacular Queens Bath. Unlike a condo, this home has lots of space to spread out, it’s in a quiet neighborhood, it’s close to everything and is very comfortable. M.C.

Aloha Cindy,

This letter is written in appreciation of the wonderful accommodations we were afforded by your company during our recent visit to Kauai.

The Garden House (Princeville Garden House) there was much more than we anticipated, being spacious, Clean, up to date and a great value. Everything necessary for a great week was at our disposal, including a completely outfitted kitchen, towels, and all we could hope for in small details. We were impressed!

Further, your personal assistance was above and beyond the normal, and We thought it appropriate to extend our thanks for all you did to familiarize us to the check in/check out procedures, and the minutia to make our stay Perfect.

Our company will be in touch next time we visit Kauai! Mahalo! S.M., HI.

What a wonderful home Villas of Kamalii 11 is. We agree with the other comments that this is one of the best equipped holiday homes we have stayed in. We have had the most special of weeks staying with our son and family who live in San Francisco. I will be sad to leave and say goodbye as we travel home tomorrow. Mahalo and greetings from Australia. S.B., SF

Pali Ke Kua 228- Thank you for the fabulous vacation condo — Puu Poa #406. Outstanding views, beautifully appointed & spotless! Definitely would recommend this unit to anyone visiting Kauai. K.S, WA

We are so excited & really appreciate your very PROMPT and efficient help Kelly! You set the bar high for PERFECT customer service! Nice work! B.C.

Kkaaumoana and so many people appreciate the loyal service oceanfront realty offers,the attitude,especially the service, compassion and sincerety of concern Donna Apisa gives back to the community K.K

Pali Ke Kua 228- Beautiful! Awesome views. Thank you for sharing your home- we will be back! J.N., CO

This was the best wedding present imaginable! We had such a wonderful time here. The week in Kauai was the perfect antidote for all of the stress leading up to the big event. We’re off to the big island now for more adventure (and relaxation). Thanks again for this amazing place (Villas of Kamalii 11)- we loved it! C

Our party of 4 adults stayed in Pu’u Poa 107 the first week of March 2013. We had plenty of space, nice and comfortable accommodations and of course beautiful Hawaii just outside the doors. This is an end unit so you gain another window or two in the kitchen area. The stairs were a bit much for the older ones (70’s) in our group to handle each time we came and went. The parking is plentiful and close, very little to no neighbor noise. I was hesitant about booking here only because I had read NO reviews on this specific unit but we gambled and felt like we won in the end. The property management company was easy to work with and we never heard anything from them during our visit. The whales were fantastic to watch each morning as are the surfers and the outriggers- bring your binoculars. There is a closet packed with lot’s of beach essentials. Just a few chairs, towels, boogie boards, beach umbrella and a few coolers can be found. We spotted some sea turtles at Hideaway beach which was beautiful and truly hidden away-it’s not for those who may have young children, be older or out of shape (or both). You can access the more crowded beach below the St.Regis easy enough with TONS of stairs on the left of their property and on the way back we cheated and used their elevators to avoid the stairs without a problem coming or going. If our travels brought us to the north shore of Kauai again we would defiantly stay in this lovely home if available. L.L

This is our second visit to your lovely home. When we arrived it felt just like coming home- Villas of Kamalii is so beautiful and comfortable, we hope to stay here again next year! We had a wonderful time on the island! D.W., CA.

Thanks for your prompt , friendly & professional service. You & your co-workers really do consistently meet your company mission statement. Betty & I wish you all a joyous festive season & a happy, healthy 2013. See you in January 2014. D.K.

My wife and I stayed in your Hanalei Bay Villa # 15 rental Nov. 1 – Nov. 10, 2012. This is the third time we have rented one of these villas. As always, the small separate houses offer a unique condo-rental experience- your own private home with no other tenants upstairs, downstairs or on the other side of the walls, beautiful grounds, windows and views on all four sides, great view of the bay and mountains to the west (sunsets!) from our lanai, and convenient proximity to the St. Regis Hotel, beach and all the other attractions of Princeville and the town of Hanalei. This unit was no exception, and the spacious 2 BR floor plan gave us lots of room to spread out.

We want to give a special thanks to the agents at Oceanfront Realty for the easy rental arrangements, spotless conditions when we arrived, and even accommodating our late evening plane departure by allowing us a “courtesy late check-out” on our last day (possible because the next tenant was not arriving that day)!

The north shore of Kauai is our favorite part of Hawaii, and all worked out perfectly for our 10 days in paradise, and we look forward to our next stay- hopefully not too far in the future. C.S.

We just got back from our trip to Kauai and wanted to let you know we had a great time and loved our rental- #4 Villas of Kamalii. It was a great condo- everything in the unit was well done and there were no deficiencies at all. I appreciate your recommending this unit to us. It was a very comfortable accommodation and we would certainly rent it again. Thanks for your help. K.L., NM.

Well appointed comfortable and excellent choice for your stay! This property has beautiful views (pictures dont do it justice!!) awesome private pool and hot tub, the albatross were nesting right in the cul de sac. Adjacent to the home is an easement that you can use to access an awesome hike down the hill to the sandy beach. Don’t pack anything as this house is also well stocked with beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, games, snorkels, you name it, its probably there for use. Mahalo to the owners for sharing their slice of paradise with us all at a very affordable price WA

Excellent vacation! Our unit was clean, in good condition, convenient to everything, and had magnificent views. Management was very responsive to the one minor issue we had, so customer service was excellent. We would love to have the SAME unit the next time we return to Kauai. Air tour of Kauai on Wings over Kauai was a highlight, but our Pali Ke Kua abode was the best part of our trip! D.A.

Pali Ke Kua 228 is “Heaven on Earth”. B.R., CA.

Just wanted to touch base to tell you our time at Hale Ylang Ylang was a memory to tuck away for all time. We loved it and found everything perfect. Even the weather cooperated…..between the mist and the brief showers that seem to be what make the North Shore so beautiful. Loved the mountain views from our lanai the best.

Will keep this place at the top of our list for return trips in the future! M.A., OR.

Thank you for your great customer service. It is clear to see why this company is 30 years strong. P.B., AZ.

We loved Aloha Lani! Not only is the house beautiful, but the view of the golf course with the mountains in the background is spectacular! We particularly loved enjoying this view from the hot tub. Also, we were able to get fantastic cell reception throughout the house and the internet connection was very good. Thanks! S.R., IN.

We had a wonderful stay at the Hale Makala. The house is steps to the beach and a short walk to the town. Our favorite part of the house was the expansive porch. We enjoyed many evenings out there during our stay. A.H., CA.

I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful stay in your condo on Kauai. We were absolutely amazed at the remodel you did within your unit (Puamana 1A). It was BEAUTIFUL! So clean and spacious. You thought of everything in an effort to make your guests feel at home. We loved the location and the proximity to the Westin. We truly felt like we should pinch ourselves for how fortunate we were to have found you and the condo you own in Kauai. Thanks again for a great stay. We will certainly be in touch again should we travel to Kauai in the future. J.S.

We wanted to contact you to say what a fabulous time we had in Hoku Hale, which we left a week ago. We feel very lucky to have chosen the north shore and this house provided everything we could have wished for. Thank you for all your help in making the booking so easy. J.C., MD

Just wanted to say thanks so much for working so hard to find us a house that worked. We had a wonderful time, and it was truly a beautiful house! L.L., TX

I am just writing to say we LOVED Sealodge A6! Thanks for letting us know about it when we inquired about other places that weren’t available. We are now thinking someone must have cancelled because otherwise we don’t know why such great unit would have been open at the last minute. . . We are already hoping to come back next winter.

We loved the little beach down the trail, the view was great from every room, and the unit was exactly what we needed.

By the way, you should know a pack-n-play fits perfectly in the bedroom closet with plenty of extra space — it was a perfect tiny bedroom for our baby — for future parents of young kids that might wonder about where to put one if they stay there since it’s just one bedroom.

Thanks again! J.C., CA

We had a great time!! Thanks for all your coordination! J.M., MA

We want to thank you for your speedy response when we called with a problem. We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have found a beautiful home and a long with it a new friend. Aloha. D.B., CA

We have visited Hawaii 5 times (4 to Kauai) and this holiday tops them all. One of the main reasons is our stay in Cliffs 6302. Its décor and contents available for our use, as well as the view from the lanais gives this unit top marks. Thanks again. Mahalo! D.K., CAN

We had a fantastic time on Kauai and the house was perfect, one of the best vacations we’ve ever had! M.N., FL

The folks at Hanalei North Shore Properties could not have been more pleasant, efficient and helpful. We had an unexpected issue come up, and the HNSP team took care of it promptly, assuring we had a great stay in Hanalei. We would certainly recommend them to others. D.M., MT

The service that we got was over and above anything we could have ever dreamed and hoped for. You guys are amazing. The few minor maintenance issues we had were all done right away. Your service was efficient and thorough and pleasant and we cannot thank you enough. H.Z., IL

This is the best vacation we ever had, Hanalei Bay Villa 23 was absolutely beautiful with wonderful view from the balcony , very quiet and peaceful and relaxing , I loved this condo because everything was brand new inside, we had everything we needed and very luxurious. We want to go back soon again , this is our dream. CA

We returned to the mainland yesterday (sadly) Puu Poa 107 was absolutely perfect! so beautiful! We played this game trying to see if there were any utensils or supplies that weren’t provided…I think maybe we came up with one (pineapple corer). We just had the best time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thanks so much for all your help! N.B., CA.

Summer Please

March 21st, 2015 by Lindsey

I know, I know spring has just arrived. March 21st. First day of Spring. Summer is on my mind though! With Kauai’s island temperatures, I might as well just say summer is here. Am I allowed to do that? Can I unofficially say it is summer?

Whether you agree with me or not, summertime is coming, unless you are me and think it is pretty much already here. Maybe summertime to you and your family more so means the time off from school for the kids. When they are out for the summer, it can be easier to think of the summer in that fashion. Ok, so when the kids are from class, you are wanting to take a summer vacation, am I right or am I right? A family vacation to Kauai is just what you and your family needs to ease on into summer, to relax, and have some time away from the norms of home.

Kauai is just what you need to get your Hawaii fix! The Garden Island as it is called, has the right mix of rural meets city meets island time. Have you heard of the tree tunnel? It is considered the gateway to Poipu. It is one of the nicest rides in my opinion. People love riding this way, and it is quite a picturesque view as well. I encourage you to Google it.

When you are on Kauai, everything seems to be just right. The roadways, the ease of time, the people and community here, the food, oh and I could go on and on and on…

If you are considering coming to Kauai, check out the Kauai Visitors Bureau. Here is the link to their webpage http://www.gohawaii.com/en/kauai/#/kauai/landing.
