If you decide to stay on the North Shore and want to take your kids to the Anini Beach swimming area, then I have a vacation rental suggestion for you. One of the best rentals near Anini Beach is Puanani, which is a short walk away from the water. Why is it nice? Well, let me tell you about it.
The first thing I loved about this vacation rental is the interior design. Now, normally I would be bragging about the space and the price (which I will get to), but you can’t help but love this place when you walk into it. This is a two story home with high ceilings and a fun and tropical interior theme. The support posts are painted in bright, friendly colors and the staircase to the second floor is simply beautiful. So, if you are a fan of unique interior design at all, you must visit this place.
Okay, onto the good stuff. This place is HUGE. Seriously, it is a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2 living room vacation home tucked into a tropical paradise. The size makes it easy to find your own space, even if you are vacationing with 6 other people. The locational privacy makes it ideal for vacationing families or up to 4 couples vacationing together. And the price is unbeatable, especially if you are looking into hotel costs. (But I’ll get to that in a minute.)
As well as the size, this place has a few amenities. For instance, each bedroom has a bathroom, so there is no fighting over the shower in the morning. The living room couch also folds out into a sofa sleeper, making this a house for up to 8 people. Plus, there is a large wrap-around covered deck on the second floor with tables and chairs, so you can relax each evening while BBQing up a meal and watching the stars above the foliage of the mountain. Yep, it’s nice.
Other amenities for this place include a fully-equipped kitchen for all of your cooking needs, two separate living rooms so you can break up into groups, and free wireless internet for those who need to check my blog for the latest updates. ☺ There is a large yard out front where you can run around and play, and there are fruit trees on the property that you are allowed to pick for some delicious treats. And, if you packed light, that’s okay! There is a washer and drying in the home for easy laundry services.
Now for the cost. If you have researched hotel rooms at all, then you know that they can run anywhere from $200-$500 per night. So, if you and three other couples want to come to Kauai together, that would be between $800 and $2000/night for your group. (Doesn’t sound good, am I right?) HOWEVER, this enormous vacation home is only $2,500 for the week! That’s 7 nights of lodging for up to 4 couples for only $2,500. And when you add on space, amenities, location to the beach, etc… well, you can see why this is a good deal and a nice house.
So, if you are going to be visiting the Anini area, check out Puanani in Kilauea. You are simply going to LOVE this place.
If you decide to stay on the North Shore and want to visit a great beach with lifeguard protection that is perfect for swimming, I would suggest coming to Haena. There is a vacation home here, called Haena Place, that might be just perfect for you and your family, especially if you are a family of 4 or less.
Haena Place is located in a quiet neighborhood in Haena, tucked away into a small cul-de-sac. It is a two-story home with a wrap-around deck that overlooks the lush tropical mountains. So each morning you can step out onto the deck with your family, your food, and your coffee and have a nice breakfast while looking out onto the beautiful tropical landscape.
The house itself is perfect for a small family. There are two bedrooms. The larger of the two has a King-sized bed and the smaller room has a Queen. Plus, there are 1 ½ baths, so the kids will have their own bathroom for everything except showers. The living room is just right for watching one of the movies in the bookshelf for checking out what’s on cable. And the kitchen is fully stocked with the utensils and cooking equipment necessary to make a wonderful meal. You just need to pick up some ingredients.
Plus, the location of this home is perfect. Not only is it located in a safe and quiet neighborhood, but it’s also only a short distance away from Tunnel’s Beach and Haena Beach Park. Haena Beach Park, as you know, is a lifeguarded beach. Plus, the natural shape of the underwater obstacles decrease the large surf, making this beach perfect for swimming and snorkeling. So if you want a family adventure on the beach, this is the place to stay.
And the price is the best part. Hotels are really expensive and you don’t get anything more than a room and a bathroom. It’s even worse when you think of having to spend your entire vacation sharing a small space with your kids. The lack of privacy and crazy mess will get to anyone after a while. But this house is only $1,350 a week! Seriously, price some hotels and you’ll see what a wonderful deal this is. And when you consider all of the amenities you get when you rent a home instead of a hotel room, you’ll definitely decide in favor of Haena Place. You can take my word for it.
If you are coming to visit Kauai for the holidays, then you need a place to stay! And if you want a beautiful 3 bedroom/3 bathroom condo in one of the best towns on Kauai for under $1100/week, then I have the place for you: Villas of Kamalii 11.
The Villas of Kamalii are a group of villas right in Princeville near the world famous Makai Golf Course, Princeville Resort, Princeville Center, and some of the best beaches on the island. And the best of these villas is Unit 11. Why? Well, for one thing, it’s nice.
Talk about elegant design and good use of space. This villa has everything you need, and several things you probably don’t need that are used for accent pieces. There is a fully decked out kitchen, dining room, living room, three large bedrooms (two of which are master suites), three bathrooms, and more space than you can shake a stick at! (Pardon my odd wording choice, but I grew up hearing the stick thing and it kind of stuck.)
The master suites have it all, from large beds to private bathrooms. Each of the suites has its own flat screen television and a private lanai (patio) as well. So, other than needing to come out for food, you can be pretty well set in one of these suites. Of course, if you are visiting the island with another couple, you will have to fight over the King sized bed. The second master only has a queen.
And then there is the amazing amount of amenities this villa has. The living room has a flat screen TV and DVD player. The garage (yes, it has one for your rental car) has an assortment of beach toys for the kids. There is a washer/dryer unit as well and a nice BBQ on the back patio for grilling up burgers, some nice deep sea fish, or even a sausage or two. And there is Internet access, so everyone can surf their favorite websites or check in on work if they want.
But even with all of that, you are only scratching the surface of why this villa is so great. You see, this villa is in an area of villas, all sharing some great community property. So, do you love the ocean but don’t like to swim in the salt? Well, there is a community swimming pool and a hot tub for anyone staying on-site. Plus, this neighborhood is close to many of Princeville’s main attractions, ensuring that you will always have something to do. Combine that with the nearby Hanalei Bay and you have a trip made in heaven.
So come and visit us for the holidays and bring your friends. Believe me – Villas of Kamalii 11 has room for them.
If you have wanted to visit Kauai and stay directly on the beach, but you weren’t sure you could afford it, I completely understand. Hotels directly on the beach are SO expensive, and you only get one small room for your expense. But what if I told you that there is a vacation condo directly on the beach, just steps from the water, that will only cost you $900/week? Would you like to see it? Well, if so, check out Sealodge A6 in Princeville!
This particular Sealodge is part of a larger condo unit. However, each lodge is a private oasis for travelers, with peaceful beachfront surroundings for each member of your party to enjoy. It’s great for a small family with older kids or for a group of friends. However, I would caution families with young children to avoid this particular condo. Condos on the beach are wonderful, unless you have children who like to wander and are bad swimmers. Since there is no fence between this unit and the beach, it’s important that, if you do choose this condo for your trip, you watch your young children at all times.
The configuration of this house is simple, designed for comfort but not as a large house. There is one bedroom with a Queen-sized bed that is set apart from the main living area. However, the other beds are directly in the living room, off in their own nooks and crannies. The sofa turns into a bed, which can sleep two, and there is also a daybed that sleeps one. So, in total, you can have up to 5 people sleeping comfortably in this condo.
Of course, since this is a home and not a hotel room, you will have a living room, dining area, and a kitchen full of gadgets, equipment, and utensils. In fact, other than the food itself, your kitchen should have everything you need to make your stay an enjoyable one. In addition to the regular household amenities, there is also a pool onsite, as well as a shared washer/dryer room for condo visitors. But you didn’t really choose a condo on the beach in order to sit around in your house doing laundry, did you?
So let’s face it – the best part of this condo is its location. It is literally a short meander down to the water. You could go swimming several times a day and watch the waves when you’re in the house. You don’t have to drive anywhere. You don’t need to pay to visit a private beach. You have one right in front of you for your entire stay. Enjoy it.
If you have a large family, then you know that it costs quite a bit of money to go on vacation. From your food budget to simply finding beds for everyone, it’s going to cost, especially if you vacation in Hawaii, right? After all, a basic Hawaiian hotel room will run you $200 a night, and if you have a big family, you’ll need at least two rooms.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can house a family of 6 for only $1050/week at Mauna Kai 12 and you’ll have plenty of space to spread out.
Mauna Kai 12 is great because it has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, so there should be no fighting over showers and toilets in the mornings. Plus, with lofted ceilings, a large family room, and a beautiful covered lanai with ceiling fans, you’ll have plenty of space during the day to hang out and live.
When you’re not out and about on our beautiful island, you can eat meals as a family in the nice dining area, cooking those meals in the fully-equipped kitchen or getting take-out from one of the many wonderful restaurants in Princeville. You can watch TV or movies using the CD/DVD/VCR player. You can read emails and catch up on work with high speed internet. Or you can find a quiet corner and curl up with a book.
But why stay inside? Mauna Kai 12 is located in the coveted Princeville resort area of Kauai. Not only is this a great neighborhood with beautiful homes, but you’re in the hot spot of the North Shore! There are beaches, hiking trails, horses to ride, equipment rental places, waterfalls, tennis courts, fishing spots, and more. You can use the beach towels, chairs, and pool floaties and walk 10 short minutes to the Anini Beach. Or you can dive into the Mauna Kai community pool. There are shops, restaurants, a children’s park and more, all within walking distance of this house.
So if you want to take a nice vacation with your big family, don’t fret the cost of accommodations. Simply call and find out more about Mauna Kai 12. It’s a great house and you’ll be glad you stayed here.
Okay, I mentioned in my last post that you can rent an entire house with an ocean view for only $800 a week. And I’ll tell you that not everyone believed me. If you have ever priced hotel rooms with a view on Kauai, you’ll know why. They are expensive! But when it comes to Kamahana 18, you get an ocean view, a nice home, and so much more.
Kamahana 18 is a condo near the 6th fairway of the Makai Golf Course. This means that you get the beautiful views associated with a pristine golf course, as well as those ocean views I promised you. In fact, while you are sitting on your patio, you’ll have a pretty good view of the Kilauea lighthouse as well, a historic point of interest for many visitors to the island. Sounds good, right?
In addition to great views and a prime location in Princeville, Kamahana 18 has a lot of space. With a master suit, another bedroom and second bathroom, a living room, and a kitchen, you will have the comforts of home. This place easily sleeps a family of 4 or a small group of friends. Plus, with your own fully equipped kitchen and living room, you can make meals in your house before venturing out to conquer the adventures of Kauai.
Feel like staying in for the day? Well, that’s fine. This home-away-from-home has free high speed internet, a tv and DVD player, a washer/dryer for laundry time, a lanai (patio) for lounging, and (unlike a hotel bar or lounge) some much needed privacy. Plus, there is a shared pool on-site, so you can hang out at your house all day without concern.
So, if you want to take a vacation to Kauai, please don’t choose a cramped hotel room. For only $810/week, you can get a nice condo unit on a golf course with a view of the ocean. What more can you ask for?
Have you ever been talking with a friend or new acquaintance about going on vacation and been embarrassed about your idea of a vacation in comparison with theirs? You know, the people who vacation at a villa in the South of France and look down on you when you talk about your family camping trip or plans to visit Hawaii? Well, now you can match them villa for villa by staying at Hanalei Bay Villa 11 on your next trip to Kauai.
Unlike a villa in the South of France, a Hanalei Bay villa is only $1,050/week! So you get all of the villa experience for a quarter of the cost they will spend on their accommodations. Plus, you get to come here to the most beautiful place on earth: the Garden Isle. Every morning, you can have breakfast in your own private breakfast nook and gaze out over the lush vegetation, beautiful mountain slopes, and crystal clear ocean waters. Sounds good, right?
Hanalei Bay Villa 11 is just a short walk to the beach, so you and your kids can visit the sandy oceanfront each and every day if you want. Need some groceries to make dinner in your private, fully-equipped kitchen? Well, you are also a short walk away from town where you will find stores and quite a few restaurants, in case you decide not to cook. And with a master bedroom containing a king-sized bed, a private bathroom, a private patio, and a television, you can enjoy some much-needed alone time with your spouse each and every night after the kids are asleep.
This villa sleeps 4 comfortably and is perfect for a small family. Plus, at only $1050 a week, you’ll be able to afford some souvenirs before you leave. And just think about how you can brag to your snobby friends about the lovely villa, breathtaking scenery, and luxury amenities knowing the whole time that you spent FAR less than they ever could on a vacation.
Do you want a lovely vacation rental home inside of a famous resort with all the amenities you’d expect from resort life for half of what you will pay for a nice hotel? Yeah, I thought so. So here is some information on Hanalei Bay Resort 2309.
The Hanalei Bay Resort has a set of seriously nice condos on-site. These condos are spacious, beautiful, and modern, a great backdrop for a trip to Kauai. And at only $900 for a week in condo 2309, it’s hard to say no.
Of course, like the other condo units in this resort, there are amenities like a community pool, tennis courts, and a short walking trail to the ocean! In this particular 2-story condo unit, you will find everything you need for a pleasant stay. There is a master bedroom upstairs, complete with a television for late night movies. Downstairs, there is a large living room for family time, a bathroom, a kitchen with all of the equipment you’ll need for basic cooking, and another bedroom.
So what you’re getting is a home-away-from-home with bedrooms, a private bathroom, a kitchen, and a living area inside of a popular resort for less than you would pay for a nice hotel room. Can you see any down side?
I have written for a few years now about how silly it is to stay in a hotel or an expensive resort when so many beautiful vacation condos and homes are available on our island. Seriously, why get stuck in one room with a bed and a million neighbors when you can have an entire house to yourself for (often times) far less money than a hotel would cost. But in all that time, I have had a pervasive argument from the other side, that small group of vacationers who simply have one thing to say about my ideas: “But I want to stay in a resort.”
Okay then! I can understand the desire to tell your friends that you stayed in a nice resort on the island of Kauai. There is a certain additional status you receive from your listeners when they hear the word “resort” that some vacationers don’t want to do without. That’s fine. So in keeping with that desire, I have decided to recommend to you Hanalei Bay Resort 2310.
If you want to stay in a resort, this is the one to choose. You will still have the freedom to do as you please without hindrance as you would with a vacation home, though I admit there will be less space. Plus, you will get all of the benefits that resort stay often brings. Let’s discuss them.
For one thing, this particular part of the resort is one room with one bathroom, which will be perfect for a single couple or a small family who wants a true resort feel. The price is only $630/week, which is amazing when compared to the competition, and you will have your own private lanai. Plus, this resort offers other amenities you might find advantageous.
The unit itself has air conditioning, so the humid weather of our tropical island won’t bother you in the summer months. Plus, there are 2 swimming pools on-site for those who don’t want to take the short walk down the paved path to the beach. There are 8 tennis courts, so you can feel free to play at your leisure, and if you run out of things to do (which is pretty near impossible on this side of the island), there is cable television to watch.
But perhaps the greatest thing about this resort is the garden feel to the surroundings. You will be constantly surrounded by lush vegetation, beautiful flowers, and tropical gardens. If you have never stepped out into a tropical garden before, let me explain that it is a wondrous sensation for the eyes, the ears, and the nose, as you bring all of your senses to bare on this luscious wonderland. The Hanalei Bay Resort is one of the prettiest cultivated lodging places on Kauai, and therefore I can recommend it fully, even if I would personally still prefer a small house away from prying eyes myself.
When you come to Kauai, you want to spend your money on important things like time with your family and activities you can do together. So spending a few thousand dollars just to rent a hotel room or two for the week is a tragic waste. What if you could rent an entire 3 bedroom home for 7 days and only pay $900? Would that be worth it to you? Then how about you check out Hale Honu 8B in Princeville.
Hale Honu 8B is a lovely, two-story condo featuring an updated kitchen and almost new living room furniture (purchased in 2009). With 2 queen-sized beds and 2 twin beds, there is enough room in this home to sleep 6 people comfortably. Plus, there are several important amenities that many other townhouses do not have.
While there are several vacation rental options on Kauai, Hale Honu 8B has free high speed internet, 3 televisions, a DVD player with a large selection of movies for you to enjoy, a fully equipped kitchen, a working record player with an assortment of music on real vinyl, a washer/dryer in the condo, ceiling fans in every room for use on humid days, and beach equipment in the garage. In other words, this condo was literally designed with your family’s comfort and enjoyment in mind.
Do you like storage space? Well, this townhouse has plenty of closets and storage space throughout the two floors. There is even a workspace in one of the bedrooms, so work can get done while you enjoy your vacation. Plus, the kitchen has everything from cookware and appliances to dishes and silverware for eating meals at home. And with the location of Princeville as a backdrop, you can explore some of the best beaches, restaurants, hiking trails, and spas on Kauai without traveling more than a few miles from your home-away-from-home.
So if this sounds like a good place to stay, then check it out today!
If you have a family of 5-6, then you probably understand that travel isn’t always easy. It’s hard to find a restaurant everyone likes, it’s difficult to rent the right sized vehicle, and it’s expensive to stay in a hotel. And if you do find the right place to stay, how will you keep the kids entertained while you’re there? Well, have you checked out Emmalani Court 212 in Princeville?
While I can’t help you with the rental car company and I can’t make your kids agree on dinner options, I can tell you that a vacation rental home is a much better idea than staying in a hotel. For one thing, the price is an important factor. In a hotel, you will likely have to paid for multiple rooms. But with this vacation rental, the price for the week is only $1,050 for 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, a patio, and a fully-equipped kitchen. That’s right – 7 days and a ton of space for only a thousand dollars. Since hotel rooms cost $200/night/room, this will save you quite a bit of money.
And speaking of food, if you can’t find a restaurant that all of your kids will enjoy, why not eat in? Instead of hotel room service (which will cost you a small fortune) or trying to smuggle what you can into your room, this condo has a fully-equipped kitchen. This means that you will find everything you need in this kitchen to make truly fantastic meals. Since you are only a short walk (or REALLY short drive) to the heart of Princeville, you are close to many grocery stores, local shops, fish markets, and delis. So you can make whatever you like in your own kitchen during your stay.
But what about sleeping space? Well, as I mentioned before, there are 2 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is a master suite (that you will probably take and not your children). The Master Suite has a King-sized bed, a TV, and a large walk-in shower in your own private bathroom. So, at the end of a long day, you can escape the kids and enjoy your own private space. The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed and a twin bed, meaning you can sleep up to 3 people in this room. Plus, the living room has a queen-sized pull out couch, so you could sleep another kid or two out there.
The rest of the house is designed to give you light, space, and comfort. There are windows everywhere, allowing you to spend time viewing the splendor of the island. From your home, you can see the ocean as well as the world-famous Makai golf course. So you can literally sit out on your patio, sip a refreshing drink, and watch a hole of golf or two. And, if you want to request a tee-time, you could try playing on the Makai course yourself while you’re there!
The living room is big enough for your family to stretch out and relax. And, with books, games, a flat screen TV, and even an iPod dock, your family will have a lot to do. Plus, you will find beach toys and a cooler in the house. Feel free to use them to take a trip to the near-by beach (only 8 minutes on foot) and enjoy your time in Princeville!
Last month, I talked about Alii Kai and it’s great location and amenities. However, that was Alii Kai 8E. Today, I want to talk about another great Alii Kai rental that is sure to be the perfect place for you and your family: Alii Kai 5103.
For one thing, Alii Kai 5103 is in Princeville, which is one of the most popular towns on Kauai. In Princeville, you can find concerts, nice restaurants, crystal clear waters, the best beaches on the island, water sports, equipment rentals, hiking trails, shopping centers, and even a few friends. And if you stay at Alii Kai, you will be right in the thick of things.
And Alii Kai also has a great view of the water, located on a bluff overlooking the beautiful waters surrounding the island. Not only that, but there is a large lawn where your family can play touch football or enjoy an evening picnic underneath the stars.
Of course, the house itself is also lovely. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, there is enough room for a family of four or two couples vacationing together. And each room of the house has a beautiful ocean view, so you don’t have to argue over who gets which bedroom. The lanai is a great place to relax and have a cold drink at the end of a busy day spent enjoying all that Kauai has to offer. And, let’s be honest, at only $900 a week, this place is a steal.
So if you need a place to stay for your Kauai vacation, consider Alii Kai 5103.
On Kauai, we have many hotels, several villas, and quite a few resorts. But the best places to stay are often the vacation rental homes. For one thing, they are cheaper per week than getting a hotel room or staying at a resort. And for another thing, they offer you a lot more room and many more amenities than most other places. So, if you are coming to visit Kauai, consider Alii Kai 8E for your stay.
Alii Kai is a group of condos in Princeville, the best town on Kauai. At Alii Kai 8E, you will be surrounded by the lush views of tropical landscaping, be within walking distance to some beautiful tennis courts, and you can even see the ocean from the condo. Of course, I recommend 8E specifically because it has a cozy yet spacious appearance with many windows to keep the space light and bright throughout the year.
Alii Kai 8E is a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom condo with enough space to sleep 4 comfortably. This makes 8E the perfect place for a small family or two couples to stay. Plus the living room has a pullout couch for additional sleeping space if needed.
Amenities for this condo include a fully equipped kitchen, landscaping, a communal swimming pool and tennis courts, a washer/dryer unit in the condo, free high speed internet and a TV/DVD unit. But the best part of this condo is the price: only $875 for an entire week! So if you come to Kauai, you can spend your money on what really matters and not on an outrageous hotel bill.
Hardwood floors. Hot tub. High Definition Plasma TV. Vaulted ceilings. Free Wireless DSL.
Do I have your attention? Then you are going to love staying at Aloha Lani.
Aloha Lani is a beautiful new vacation rental home in Princeville overlooking the golf course. So if you want to come to Kauai and stay somewhere truly luxurious, then this is the spot to choose. For only $1,900 a week, this vacation home and all that it has can be yours. Now, let’s talk amenities.
In addition to the amazing items listed above, you will find many more amazing things in this fabulous vacation rental. First of all, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you’ll need if you want to cook a few meals. The living room is large and includes not only a plasma tv but also a DVD player for movie nights. And there is a large gaming table for 8 where you can enjoy a few hands of cards or play board games with your kids. And if you are worried about those humid tropical days, then never fear – this house has central air conditioning.
There are two sleeping wings in the house and each wing has two bedrooms. The bedrooms are large, almost like suits, and each bedroom has its own bathroom. So, you could bring your whole family or make this a couple’s retreat for up to 4 couples!
Outside, there is a private lanai (or patio) with views of the mountains and the golf course. Plus, a large hot tub where you can spend the evenings watching the stars and enjoying the tropical air. And if you want to walk into Princeville, that won’t be a problem. This home is a short walk from the Princeville Shopping Center and a short drive from a handful of beaches and hiking trails. And if you play golf, you’ll love this location, as you are a short distance away from the Princeville Makai golf course!
I don’t think the owners were kidding when they advertised this place as a little piece of Heaven. Believe me – this is a house of luxury and comfort. It’s the perfect place for a golf retreat, family vacation, small family reunion, or couples retreat, and it is one of my favorite vacation rentals on Kauai.
If you are coming to Kauai for a vacation, then you will probably need a place to stay. Trust me – don’t choose a hotel. They are overpriced and won’t give you the comfort or privacy you need. What you need is the Princeville Garden House.
Rooms – This beautiful home in Princeville has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a dining room, and a private lanai (patio) for spending evenings watching the stars.
Space – And just in case you think these rooms are small, let me tell you a bit about them. There are two master suits with amenities like walk-in showers, a Jacuzzi tub, a flat screen TV, upgraded mattresses, and more. The kitchen is new and features the best appliances and enough space for any cook. And the living room is a full on entertainment center with enough space for your whole family to stretch out.
Amenities – Here are just a few amenities that this incredible house has to offer: high ceilings, outdoor gas grill, fully equipped kitchen, wireless internet, hammock, citrus trees (and you can take as much fruit as you want), large home entertainment system, slate flooring, and air conditioning (for those humid days). Plus close proximity to everything Princeville has to offer.
Location – Because this home is located in Princeville, you won’t have to drive far at all in order to enjoy the best of Kauai. After all, you’d only be 5-10 minutes away from the North Shore, snorkeling, swimming, surfing, high class restaurants, shopping centers, hiking trails, Hanalei Bay, the Kilauea lighthouse, and two professional, world-class golf courses.
Price – Now, for a week’s stay in a hotel, you are looking at a couple thousand dollars at the very least. And for a nice hotel room, you’re looking at a lot more than that. But for a week’s stay in the Princeville Garden House, you’ll only have to pay $1400! Can you believe it. And if you make this a trip a couple’s retreat and invite two more couples with you, you can split the costs and still have enough room to enjoy your own private moments.
Need a place to stay in 2012 when you come to Kauai? Great! I have a ton of vacation rentals to tell you about so you don’t have to stay in an overpriced hotel during your visit. (After all, we do want you to come back and visit again… and that would be hard to do if you spend your entire savings on lodging, right?) First of all, let’s talk about Hale Waileia in Princeville.
Forget staying in a tiny hotel room. This house (yes, I said house) in Princeville has all of the room you will need to truly relax and enjoy your stay. You know how they say that clutter will clutter the mind? Well, you will not have that problem with this house. Every room is highlighted with multiple windows (some floor to ceiling), so you can always see the beautiful tropical island that surrounds you. Plus you get your own private courtyard with a view of a beautiful Kauai garden.
And this house is big. We are talking about 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious living room and dining room, and a fully equipped kitchen for only $1,050 a week! The master suit is large, with a king-sized bed, private bathroom, and immaculate furnishings. And the entire house has hardwood floors and updated cabinets to give it a modern yet comfy feel.
Wanna know the best part? Well, okay, the price is really the best part. But you will also be a short walk away from a world class golf course, shopping centers, restaurants, beaches, equipment rental shops, and everything else that Princeville has to offer! And, if you want something fun to do, simply use the high speed internet here at Hale Waileia and look up my blog. I’ll provide you with all of the island highlights!
Okay, maybe you just made plans to come to Kauai for the end of the year. Maybe you decided last minute and are now trying to find a nice hotel in your price range? Maybe you went to the hotel you had booked and realized just how expensive it was? Maybe your wall-mates in the room next to yours are extremely loud every night? Whatever the reason, you need to find a nice condo on Kauai to use during your stay. So have you considered Hanalei Bay Villa 15?
You know what? You probably haven’t! But you should. If you are going to be staying on the island with your small family or a couple friends, this is the place for you. Why? Well, let me list the reasons for you.
Comfort – This place is cozy. The furniture is all comfortable and nice. The style is island and the colors are fun and warm. And if you care nothing about the look, how about the fact that you get two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a living room, a full kitchen, a lanai, and a backyard to use. MUCH better than a hotel room, yes?
Cost – A hotel on Kauai around the holidays is expensive. Okay, it’s more than expensive; it’s like buying a car expensive. So if you want to be able to afford your vacation, a condo or vacation home is much better for you. Hanalei Bay Villa 15 is actually a cottage, so it has that homey quality that is so lack in many places. Plus, it’s only $1,330 a week! Seriously, that’s each week, not each night! Price some hotels and you’ll see how good a deal this place is.
Amenities – A hotel room will give you a mini bar (which costs money), a television (that can be heard through the walls), and a downstairs lobby and restaurant (which will be filled with the hundreds of other guests and will typically cost you money). With #15, you get views of Hanalei Bay and the mountains, a fully equipped kitchen, 2 TVs, a DVD player, a washer/dryer in your cottage, free wireless internet, and enough room to stretch out in. And the best part: you won’t have to do anything in front of a bunch of strangers.
Wouldn’t this be a great place to bring your family? Wouldn’t this be a great place for you to stay this holiday season? Don’t you want to call and book it now?
If you are planning on visiting Kauai over the holidays and need a nice vacation rental home for your whole family, I have a recommendation for you. Consider staying at Anahola Aloha Beach House on the East side of the island. You will only be a short jaunt from the North side of the island where all of the fun happens. Plus, you will absolutely LOVE this rental. Let me tell you about it.
To start off with, this rental has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a pull-out couch for extra guests. This means that this rental can sleep 11 people comfortably, and there is plenty of space if you want to bring the kids and place sleeping bags on the floor.
Speaking of space, this place truly is spacious, and I’m not just referring to the vaulted ceilings! There are two master suites and a media room downstairs, each having its own TV with DVD player for late night movies and group hangouts. And then upstairs has the fully equipped kitchen, living room, and dining room, each with a view of the beautiful Anahola Bay! In fact, if you are up for a walk, you are just a short hike from the bay itself. So you can spend your days combing the sand and spend your evenings watching the bay from your lanai.
Don’t want to simply lounge on a chair to watch the ocean? Well, that’s fine. This rental has a hot tub, allowing you to sip a cool drink while sitting in hot, moving water while you enjoy the view. After you finish with the hot tub, you can come inside and sit down to dinner, a dinner you can make yourself in the large kitchen complete with every appliance you will need to make a spectacular meal. (And if you are the type of cook who loves counter space, you will simply drool over this kitchen.)
Need table linens and dinnerware? They’re provided. Need a washer and dryer to clean sandy clothes? They’re provided. Need a vacation home that sleeps 11+, is a short drive to Kilauea and Kapaa, is a short walk to the beach, and that starts at only $3000/week? Well, this house provides that. All you have to do is rent it.
When you are looking for a vacation rental, what things are most important to you? Is it a large television? Close proximity to hiking trails or the beach? Enough bedrooms to sleep 6-8 people? Internet access?
Well, for me it is all of those things. I want to truly relax in comfort when I rent a home, no matter where I am. And if you are the same way, then you will love Hale Luana, a vacation rental home in Haena.
Hale Luana is a large vacation rental that is comfortable and right on the beach. That’s right – the backyard is literally the sandy shore of the ocean. In the front yard, there is a large plot of beautiful green grass where your family or friends can play touch football or throw frisbees. And there is a large patio/deck/lanai furnished with chairs and a table, so you can lounge in the sun while enjoying the scene.
On the inside, this three bedroom – two bath house is fully equipped for your needs. First of all, the basics of the house are all there. Both bathrooms have showers, so you can vacation with just your family or invite a second family along and each use a separate bathroom. The rest of the house is fully furnished with comfortable beds, teak and bamboo furniture, and enough space for a large group to be comfortable. The kitchen is also well stocked with appliances and a marble countertop.
Additional amenities that you might enjoy are the high speed internet access, cable TV with DVD/VCR/CD player, gas grill, and outdoor shower to rinse off after a beach adventure. This beautiful and spacious home sleeps eight and would be ideal for a large family or group of friends. Plus, at only $4,500 a week for all of that, you would be hard pressed to find a better deal on the island.
I’ve mentioned before that hotel rooms here cost a fortune, especially if you want a nice room or a room with a view. But condos and houses for rent cost a lot less and give you all of the freedom and privacy you crave. Today, I want to talk about Sealodge H4, a one-bedroom townhouse in Princeville.
With only one bedroom and one bathroom, this townhouse isn’t extremely large, but it is well worth it for the amenities and the price. For one thing, Sealodge H4 us located on the bluff, so you will have a great view of the ocean from every room of the house. And there is a lanai (patio) out back that faces the bluff’s edge, so you can sit outside by the hour and watch the waves play in the sunshine.
Of course, who would want to be that close to the beach and not be able to get there? Luckily, this property has a trail that leads to the beach, so you can go snorkeling or swimming at your leisure. If you don’t want to get salty but you still want to get wet, there is a pool nearby where you can spend the afternoon relaxing. Other amenities include a tv, dvd player, stereo system, washer/dryer unit, and a fully equipped kitchen for your private use.
It’s like having a home away from home, but you are close to glorious beaches, scrumptious restaurants, shopping centers, and everything else Princeville has to offer, including a championship golf course! And what is the price for this great vacation getaway? Well, it’s only $875 a week, the same price as staying for two nights in a nice Princeville hotel.
So when you come to Kauai, don’t waste your money on a tiny room next to a thousand other tiny rooms. Rent a vacation home and enjoy a relaxing vacation.
