The ocean. Some people are just drawn to the ocean. It is what they need. It is where they like to be. When you travel to Kauai, most people will want to go to the ocean. Some individuals are drawn to the ocean and simply do not want to leave. If this sounds like you or your significant other, I suggest getting a vacation rental home near the water. Get as close to the ocean as possible. Get close enough that at night as you fall asleep you will be able to hear the waves crash and roll out. The getaway condo at Sealodge fits the bill.
This is a condo that is nestled into a small complex up on the ocean bluffs in Princeville. The water is just below the bluffs as you are perched appropriately on the cliff. The rise up on the bluffs makes it magnificent and oh so glorious! Sitting out on the lanai is so invigorating, so awakening, I just love it! Depending on the season, weekly rates start at low as $700 per week. Check and see what dates are available and what weekly and nightly rates currently are.
What you get for the price is a one bedroom one bath condo. There is a full kitchen, cable television, a laundry washer and dryer, and also a sleeper sofa. This is ideal for a couple’s getaway or for a family of four (sleeps two per bed/queen sofa sleeper). There is also a shared pool and a barbeque area onsite to share with other vacation renters.
The views! The location in Princeville! The price… it is all so attractive. Look at these pictures from Sealodge E4 and tell me how desirable this is!
There is always something good going on in Princeville. That is part of why I recommend vacationing and staying on this shoreline town. For a family of four, Puamana in Princeville is just the right vacation rental to come and stay at. This two-story condo sleeps four people comfortably and does not miss a beat when it comes to meeting your family’s needs.
Puamana 2D is the condominium vacation rental located at 3880 Wyllie Road, Princeville, HI. It is an end unit, and you could very well call it a townhouse. At this beautiful location you will get to experience both a mountain and a tropical garden view. Oh, and the golf course is nearby too. The Anini beach path is a five minute walk away, too. Didn’t I say that this place does not miss a thing?!
It is a two bedroom, two bath condo. A king bed is in the master and a queen is in the other bedroom downstairs. Every room is furnished with linens and all of the little details that count. There are plenty of bathroom linens as well. The clothes washer and dryer there are also nice to have, for you can do your laundry on an as-need basis, and not worry about running out of clothes or returning to your home with luggage full of clothes that need to be laundered.
The kitchen is ready to go! You do need to stock it with food, but everything else you need is right there at your fingertips. This makes it easy to have your meals first thing in the morning, or late at night while the kids are in bed for example. I think having a kitchen in-home is great for families with young children who can be routy at meals sometimes, or for the person who has specialty dietary needs. Having access around the clock to a full sized kitchen is the best when you are on vacation. Not too many places can brag about that!
There is so much more that this rental has to offer: a gas barbeque, a pool onsite, a private patio, television, phone, the whole nine-yards. Rates for Puamana 2D start as low as $840 per week. That is as low as $120 per day! That is a very competitive price that will be tough to beat considering all of the accommodations this place has to offer. Feel free to call Oceanfront Realty at 808-826-6478 and ask about seasonal prices, discounts, and availability. Nightly rates are also an option–it is not limited to only weekly rates. Puamana really is a great condo to stay at while you and your family come to visit Princeville and the surrounding areas on the beautiful Kauai.
Taking a family vacation is one of the best ways to relax. It is a great way to make memories that last a lifetime. Inviting extended family can exponentially increase the memories. Time is precious, as all of us adults have come to realize. Take a family vacation to Hawaii, and stay at a Kauai vacation rental, Villas of Kamalii 11. Click on the link and see these gorgeous pictures! This is the best location of the Villas of Kamalii. Let me tell you…
The location of this rental condo is perfect. It is located on a private greenbelt and golf course! There are no other buildings in view. You will feel like you are in your own private three bedroom, three bath fully furnished home. The golf course, garden and mountain views will make you feel like you have the hillside all to yourself. Do not get the wrong impression though! Although you are away from society as far as views and noise, you are located close to the Princeville Center, the Makai Golf Course, and a two-mile walking trail. It is the right mix of privacy and closeness to society in a vacation rental.
Again, this 3 bed 3 bath condo sleeps six people comfortably (not including couch space for those little ones who wiggle into the head count). The décor is contemporary and comfortable. The rooms are fully furnished with linens, dishes, hand soap, TP… the whole deal. There are flat screen TV’s, internet, full sized washer and dryer and a barbeque as well. Bonus–it comes stocked with beach toys! I told you it would feel like a vacation home.
Kamalii 11 rents for $1080 per week plus applicable taxes and a refundable deposit. For all that you are getting for your stay, this is worth it. If you are coming with a large family or an extended family, the price then becomes completely reasonable for each family going. To split up the price in halves or thirds makes it outrageously affordable.
Check your calendars and check online at the link above in this post to see available dates for Villas of Kamalii 11. Click Book Now and then the Rates & Availability tab. April is when the next availabilities are, so call up your family and plan your vacation now. It may work well for you and your children to come over their Spring Break from school, which will be the latter half of April.
Princeville is a lovely, luxurious place to be! It is one of the major cities on the island of Kauai. Princeville gets to brag of not one but two championship golf courses. If you are looking to stay somewhere with a city buzz to it, Princeville is your place. Staying in a vacation rental is what I suggest for your lodging needs. I have talked with too many people over the years and vacation rentals are the way to go. Let me introduce you to Plantation at Princeville and you will see why a vacation rental is the best way to go when vacationing or visiting Kauai’s north shore.
First off, Princeville is a major city on Kauai, but the Plantation at Princeville is not smack in the middle of downtown. It is just the right mix of being close to things to do on the island, while also having privacy at the vacation home. Furthermore, the beach is just a few minutes’ drive. Staying at the Plantation at Princeville leads you to Anini Beach, that’s the closest one. Hanalei Bay is also just a drive down the coast too. It’s a win-win-win for you. One nearby attraction (literally down the short road) is the Princeville Golf Club-Makai Course. If you or anyone in your group staying at this vacation home plays golf, you are in luck!
Here is the street address if you would like to see for yourself the location on a map: 4771 Pepelani Loop Suite 211, Princeville, HI 96722. This rental home has a homey-meets-luxury feel to it. Let me tell you…
It comfortably hosts a family of four. Keep in mind, if this is not a family trip it makes for a great couples getaway for a vacation double date. There is a room (master) with 1 King sized bed and another bedroom with a Queen sized bed. It is equipped with what you’d expect in a home: air-conditioning, wireless internet, TVs in every room, a stackable washer and dryer, and a fully equipped kitchen. On top of a kitchen ready to go, is a gas grill for you to use at your convenience. Sounding like a home yet, that you can live in and relax in? There is also a one car garage–perfect for the rental car you have while on Kauai.
I saved the best piece of information for last. The price! Really, all of this is priced for just $960 per week plus tax. How reasonable is that? All you need, right at home at your vacation rental. There are seasonal rates, as well as discounted times of the year, so be sure to book your trip before your desired dates fill up.
I know it is only January, but with the whole year ahead of us it seems only fitting to make plans for the months ahead. Now is a fantastic time to plan your spring break vacation. Easter falls late in April this year. If you have children in school check the academic calendar to see where their break falls. Once that has been established, plan your vacation to beautiful Kauai, Hawaii. For a family of three to a family of five I suggest Princeville’s Puu Poa 207. This is a vacation rental condominium that comes with all of the bells and whistles. Puu Poa 207 is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath rental that comes at $1,770 per week.
The master bedroom hosts a king sized bed and the secondary bedroom hosts a queen… Comfortably! It is not like some places that have a small room with a huge bed stuffed in it–no. This is a vacation rental that accounts for extra space for luggage and walking room around furniture.
The kitchen has been recently updated and it sparkles with new, high end appliances and granite countertops. When you are staying at a vacation rental, life is easier because you have your own kitchen. If you are looking to save some money, eating-in a few meals or so can really keep you on budget. Especially if you have children with you and they are always wanting to snack then this is an ideal situation: kitchen in your condo. Furthermore, there is a barbeque on the lanai so you can grill at your convenience.
Of course there is also a TV, DVD player, and free high speed internet access. Again, when traveling with children it is nice to be able to bring along their favorite movies so that they can have some time to wind-down from their day. After all, on Kauai with all of its outdoor activity available, a rest or movie back at your vacation rental can make for some good down-time.
This condo comes with a pool and a tennis court onsite. Both come with all the fixings such as pool noodles, beach toys, etc. There is a welcoming sunroom for any of your leisurely activities like reading, napping, meditating, etc.
The ocean front view is what sold me on this place! If you are going to stay on Hawaii then you should really get a place with a view. You can go all out without breaking the bank. The views, the sounds of the ocean, it is all a part of the vacation experience that is just wonderful to be immersed in. Talk about stress-reducing and relaxing!
Outside of the property, it is an easy walk to the beach. For other sites to see, it is a 10 minute drive into Hanalei. Shopping is close by as are restaurants. It is all here and for such a reasonable price. Look at your family calendar and see when is the best time for you to come and stay at Puu Poa 207 this spring or summer. Check availability here where you will also find pictures and more information.
I have a something to share with all of you. One of Kauai’s best kept secrets perfect for a couple’s get away is Pali Ke Kua 113. Let me tell you all about it. You do not have to keep it as a secret though–you have my permission to share the news with friends and family. Tell them about it after you book your trip so they do not book this comfortable home for the time slot you wanted.
Pali Ke Kua 113 is a one bedroom, one bath condominium that goes for $1,050 per week. It is the perfect private and comfortable getaway that couples are looking for! I suggest this condo for anyone who is honeymooning, babymooning, yearning for a couples escape, or looking to vacation at a more private spot near the water.
Here is what you will see at Pali Ke Kua 113: a king sized bed in a luxury master suite with an attached bathroom to match. The kitchen area is fully equipped–ready for use–with a nice large island of counter space. It is nice to have a full sized kitchen in your Kauai vacation rental for it keeps you from having to eat out each and every meal–which can add up. It is nice to eat out, but every now and then it sure is nice to have a meal at home for convenience, cost savings, or for food choice/selection. More and more folks these days are realizing they have special dietary needs so having the option to cook in your vacation rental on Kauai, like Pali Ke Kua 113, allows you to do so in comfort.
Wi-Fi is popping up more and more places these days to meet the wants and needs people have. Wi-Fi is fully available, up and running here at Pali Ke Kua 113. As is the TV and DVD player. The condominium has an open floorplan with lots of windows. It has clean lines and is sure to please!
The inside if fabulous–the outside is magnificent. This vacation rental has the ocean views you have been longing for. This couple’s escape condo also has a private paved path to the beach! How great and convenient is that? If you have any kind of wheelchair needs, the paved path works out great. If you and your sweetie prefer to go to a pool or jacuzzi, those are available onsite as well.
Located in Princeville, you are close to many natural and tourist attractions. The perfect setting, the perfect location, and at a perfect price with ample privacy! This is something you cannot simply pass up!
This rental has so much to offer and for the price of approximately $150 per night it is worth every penny! You get to see Kauai and spend time with the person you came with. Pali Ke Kua 113 is the perfect getaway for a couple, best friends vacation, or even a small family if the kid or kids do not mind sleeping on the couches.
Christmas is behind us and New Years is before us! And while you’re making resolutions for 2014, maybe you should take a break for a little while. Find some time to relax, enjoy your family, and play in the ocean. That’s right, I’m thinking you should come to Kauai and do New Years in STYLE! And if you need a place to stay, I have some recommendations for you, one of which is Puanani in Kilauea.
Puanai is an excellent place to spend a vacation for multiple reasons:
1. A great bedroom to bathroom ratio – There are three good-sized bedrooms and three bathrooms. So if you go with friends, each couple can enjoy their own private bathroom… unless you also have someone sleeping on the sofa sleeper bed in the living room. Then someone will have to share.
2. The location is SUPER close to the beach – Anini Beach is literally 60 seconds away on foot.
3. Tons of space to stretch out – This is especially good if you bring a few friends or a couple of other couples. You can either spend time all together in the spacious living spaces or out on the deck, enjoying the view OR you can each find your own places in the house to have some privacy. This house has two living rooms and several nooks and crannies you can slip into in order to be alone.
4. Free laundry and internet – The worst thing about vacation is going away and then having to bring back a week’s worth of dirty laundry to wash once you’re home. It’s like creating your own work! Not cool. But this house has a washer and dryer, so you can go home with all clean clothes. Plus, there is free internet, so you can check this blog for fun things to do while you’re here!
5. It costs only $2,550 for an entire week! While that number seems big, we’re talking 7 days in a huge house only 60 seconds from the beach for only $2,550. And if you bring three other couples with you, that means it’s only $637.50 per couple for seven days! That’s only $91 a day!! Seriously, have you priced hotels lately? This is a fabulous deal!
So if you want a large, elegant, enjoyable vacation home with enough room for a large family or several friends to spend an entire week near the beach in comfort, then this is the house for you. Puanani in Kilauea. Check it out today!
When you’re on vacation, you don’t just want to stay in a hotel room with no space to stretch out and nothing to do. You want to stay somewhere with lots of space, some great amenities, and something to do while you’re there. And that’s why I’m posting today about one of the most beautiful homes for rent on Kauai: Taro Plantation.
This 4 bedroom, 3 bath house is massive. Each room has comfortable furniture that perfectly fits the space, owing to an excellent interior decorator. And each space in the house continues the elegant theme of natural woods, soft tones, and upscale grandeur that are so apparent when you first walk in.
Included in that grandeur are antiques from China and Indonesia, moving pieces that provide a sense of awe and cultural depth to the house. Plus, there are stained glass windows that diffuse the light and inspire with shades of joy.
The bedrooms are suites really. The master suite has a king-sized poster bed, beautiful furniture, and the most impressive bathroom I’ve ever seen, with large tiles leading into a walk-in bathing area. The other bedrooms have queen-sized beds, so no one will have to sleep in a tiny space. Owing to this, the house itself can sleep 8 adults comfortably, and one more if your guest doesn’t mind sleeping on the couch.
But the rooms aren’t the best part. The living space is substantial and comfortable. The living room has cable tv and a DVD player for quiet nights at home. Plus, the house is equipped with high speed internet, so you can bring your laptops and read my blog as you sit in your beautiful vacation home in comfort. And, best of all, there is a large gourmet kitchen that includes all of the best appliances, cookware, dishes, and utensils you will need to feed everyone you bring with you. Off the kitchen is a large dining room that seats 8 and you will find everything you need to lay out a beautiful dinner in the kitchen shelves.
And that doesn’t even begin to take the outside into account. This house is built in a secluded spot in Hanalei Valley, right past Swan Lake. To get there, you will drive through beautiful taro fields and waterways, leading to a house right in the midst of nature. Each morning, you can step out onto the spacious lanai (patio) and enjoy a cup of Kauai Coffee while you watch the waterfowl play in the water. And, if you’d like to take a dip in a refreshing pool, there is a large pool on the property where you can swim contentedly. There is even a poolside dining area, a beautifully laid out section of tile where you can BBQ (it’s a gas grill) and eat while having a pool party.
Now, this all sounds very secluded and far away from civilization, right? But fortunately, while it’s tucked away far enough to be private, this home is only a short walk away from town. Hanalei Town has just about everything you’ll need while you stay with us, from restaurants to grocery stores, from gift shops to equipment rentals. So no matter what you’d like to do while here, you’ll be close to the action. Plus, if you walk (or drive) just a bit further, you will reach Hanalei Bay, the most beautiful beach on earth.
Honestly, this house is the best of the best. However, the price is much lower than one would expect to pay for an elegant mansion home in the heart of Kauai. For only $4000 a week, you can stay in this amazing home. And sometimes they run specials, meaning you can get an even better deal on the house! It’s worth a look, right?
So if you want to come to Kauai and stay in style, please consider Taro Plantation. You will be so pampered here, you won’t want to leave!
Now, I’ve been recommending a lot of tours, which are fun, challenging, exciting, adventurous, and not exactly free. And if you’re worried about spending all of your vacation money on tours, please don’t. I have a simple and easy way of saving you money on your vacation. All you have to do is stay at Kamahana 18 instead of in a hotel.
Now, hotels are great. I mean, there are a million rooms, so you’ll probably get one if you ask. And there is typically a ballroom or event room downstairs where they sometimes host entertainers, for a price. But the downside is that each room is $200-$500 a night! Yikes! And if you have a large family, you might need a couple of rooms. Plus, those rooms are tiny little things with a bedroom and bathroom only. You’ll have no room to stretch, relax, and enjoy your evening.
On the other hand, Kamahana 18 is a vacation condo that you can rent per night or by the week. For an entire week’s stay, you will only have to pay $810. That’s 7 days of vacation lodging for only $810 plus tax. Can you believe it? But it gets better.
Renting your own condo means you can have privacy and a place to stretch out and relax. Instead of one bedroom and a bathroom, this vacation rental has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a dining room, and your own private patio! In other words, you get an entire house to make your own for the week. And that house has some great amenities.
Location – Sure, a hotel might be in the city near the beach. And if you are on a high enough floor and facing the right direction, you can see the ocean. But Kamahana 18 is on the golf course with an excellent view of the cliffs and the Kilauea Lighthouse! (Which is a great place to visit, by the way. The history and beauty of the place really shouldn’t be ignored.) So while relaxing on your patio, you can star out into the ocean’s soothing blues and enjoy the manicured greens.
Size – If you have kids, this place is perfect. You’ll have your own master suite with a Queen-sized bed and a private bathroom, so you get some privacy during your stay. And your kids can share the other bathroom and the 2nd bedroom, which has 2 twin beds. Plus, there is a family area with a kitchen, dining room, and comfortable living room furniture to hang out during the day with your kids and watch TV.
Extras – And if the price, location, and size aren’t selling points on their own, keep in mind that you will also have access to a fully-equipped kitchen. This means that all the utensils, dinnerware, cookware, and appliances you’ll need are right there, waiting to be used. The laundry room has a washer and dryer, so you don’t have to worry about taking a bunch of dirty clothes home in your luggage. And there is free high speed internet, so you can check my blog for fun activities and festival ideas while you’re here!
Do you see why this condo is SO much better than a hotel? And it’s clearly a WHOLE lot cheaper. So if you want to go on a bunch of tours or spend your money on nice restaurants in town, you can!!
It’s always important to use your money wisely. And renting a condo is a great way to accomplish that.
Now I realize that the last activity I wrote about was in Lihue. And while I don’t normally recommend staying on the South-East side of the island, sometimes it’s handy to be close to an activity you plan to attend. And while I don’t recommend staying in Lihue (it’s loud and busy and not usually private), I can recommend a great vacation rental home in Anahola, north of Lihue: Anahola Aloha Beach House.
So what makes this beach house special? Well, the view is probably its most dominant feature. And I’m not just talking about the interior view of amazing architecture and aesthetically pleasing design. No, I’m referring to the fact that this house is directly on the beach. Yep, that’s right. Your view is of palm trees and sculptured lawns reaching down to the white sandy beach and crystal clear waters.
At this beach home, you will be an extremely short walk away from Anahola Bay. This is a wonderful beach for swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, and other water sports. That’s because there is a protective outlying reef that keeps the water from being too choppy. There is even a lifeguard on duty at Anahola Beach, though that is closer to the public beach side. And from the sand itself, you will have an amazing view of the mountains of Kalalea.
Of course, the interior of the home is just as important as its location. After all, the location can be perfect but, if you don’t have a comfortable place to relax, you won’t enjoy your vacation nearly enough. And we do want you to enjoy your stay. So, let’s talk about amenities.
This vacation home is comfortable, modern, has custom wooden features, and has an amazing kitchen. The kitchen is filled with white appliances that perfectly off-set the wooden cupboards. And everything else you’ll need to eat a meal in the home (from cookware and utensils to dishes and a large dining room table with linens) are included. So you’ll have no problem making meals and enjoying the conveniences of this modern house.
There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms, meaning there is plenty of space for a large family or a group of friends to come and spend the week. Two of the bedrooms are suits that include a King-sized bed and full bathroom. The other two rooms have queen-sized or Double beds and they share a bathroom. There is also a sofa-sleeper in the living room, so you can bring extra friends. In total, this vacation home can sleep up to 11 people comfortably. But wait – there’s more.
There is a living room where you can relax and unwind during the day, but there is also an entertainment room that has a flat screen TV with DVD player. And while there are TVs with DVD players in all the guest rooms, this is a great room for getting together for a movie night.
And don’t worry about running out of clean clothes. This home has its own washer and dryer, so you won’t have to pack so much stuff. (This will leave plenty of room in your luggage for souvenirs and will also allow you to clean all of your clothes before you go home, meaning less work once you return to your real life.) There is also a private hot tub on the lanai, so you can relax under the stars each night while sipping wine and dreaming of a quiet life.
And, this is the best part, you can stay here for only $3500 a week! This means that each person on this trip will only have to pay $45/night to stay at a mansion home with a hot tub on an amazing Kauai beach. Seriously! Finding a hotel like this would cost $1000 a night! Can you say “Amazingly Good Deal!” (Of course, this is the price during October only. During the summer and during Thanksgiving week, the price is $4500, and during Christmas/New Years, the price is $5500. So plan your trip accordingly.)
Now, can you see any reason why you wouldn’t want to stay here? I can’t. So come and enjoy yourself… and bring your friends!
Kauai has many reasons why you should visit. The attractions you will see are a big part of the experience. But just like any other place you go, the place you are staying at is also extremely important. Where you stay–no matter your destination–matters greatly! Your vacation rental is the place you will sleep at, have end of the day family time at, and it is where you will wake up and want to see the views you came to see. So when you come to Kauai, please consider staying at Kamahana 12.First let me talk about the location of this spot. It is on the world-famous Makai gold course! It is in Princeville on Kauai. If you are a golf lover (or if you simply like well-groomed landscaping), then this is the spot for you.
If golfing is only part of your reason for coming to Kauai, not to worry! At this vacation rental you will be minutes away from other fun activities and tourist attractions. Moments from your front door is the Kilauea lighthouse. Oh–did I not mention–you have a view of the ocean from atop a bluff! It over-looks Hawaii’s longest reefs. How cool is that? So you are close to some of earth’s natural attractions as well as other things to do like golfing. Also with the view you will be able to do some whale watching. Humpback whales are active year-round so no need to worry about that.
Now, if you are wanting some city-life, don’t worry. You are just a few minutes of driving distance from fine dining, Princeville Children’s Park, and numerous beaches. There are spas, resorts, water sport rentals, stores, and more. So you’re definitely in a great area to be a tourist.
Ok, so by now you are probably wondering what in the world could the price of this vacation rental be?! Are you ready to be shocked and amazed? Kamahana 12 is only six hundred dollars per week right now. Yes it is a seasonal price and there are nightly rates as well if you are interested in that.
It is a one bedroom one bath home, all single story. It sleeps two to four persons comfortably as there is a futon in the living room that pulls out into a queen sized sleeper. So if you and your significant other need a getaway (or if your small family needs a vacation), this is the perfect spot to visit. (Be careful to watch young children, though. This house is situated on a bluff.)
Plus, there is a full kitchen! Let me repeat: you have a full kitchen in Kamahana 12, and your view is ocean-facing. What else do you need? Well, how about a BBQ area and a shared pool with other renters who are on the Makai golf course? Yeah, that should do it.
This may be the best vacation rental spot for you, so come and check it out. At only $600/week, how could you not? After all, it is an ocean-facing vacation rental. So kick back, rent the ideal home, and enjoy it!
When you go on vacation, you want to get away from it all, right? You want quiet, relaxing spaces. You want white sandy beaches and fun activities. You want good food, good company, and a good place to curl up with a good book. What you don’t want is a noisy hotel with cramped quarters and shared walls, dealing with masses of people as you try to get through your time off. That’s not good. What you really need is Haena Place, a great vacation rental right here on Kauai.
Kauai is a relaxing place with something to do for everyone. And if you and your family are planning on staying near Haena, Haena Place is a good choice for a rental home. Why? Well, first of all, it’s quiet. Unlike a large hotel, you won’t be sharing walls, dealing with masses of people in the lobby, or hearing your neighbors fighting two doors down the hall. You will be on a quiet cul-du-sac in a safe neighborhood enjoying the benefits of a private home.
Secondly, the cost is far less than a typical hotel room. While hotels overcharge for a single room with an attached bathroom, you can rent Haena Place (two bedrooms, 1.5 baths, living room, deck, kitchen, lanai, etc) for only $1350 a week!! That’s less than $200 a day for an entire, fully-equipped house!
Thirdly, it is in a great location. The neighborhood (which I mentioned before) is safe and friendly. Plus, it’s a short walk from some GREAT beaches! (It pays to stay on the North Shore.) You can sit out on the deck of the house and enjoy some beautiful views, featuring the lush tropical mountains and some lovely waterfalls. And this puts you in a great location to find hiking trails, water sport activities, and equipment rentals as well.
Lastly, the home itself is nice. The kitchen has plenty of space to cut, chop, prepare, and make however many meals you want. The home is furnished with comfortable furniture, and the bedrooms have queen and king-sized beds. The living room has a TV hooked up with cable and a DVD/VCR box. Plus, the deck furniture is nice and perfect for a morning outside, sipping some coffee or tea and watching the natural world around you.
So please consider Haena Place if you plan to stay near Haena on the North Shore. And enjoy your time here on Kauai!
It’s approaching the 4th of July. Kauai’s hotels are filling with visitors to the island who want to see some hula, some palm trees, and a lot of fireworks over the ocean. And you and your friends want to all come together and party for the weekend. There’s just one problem: you can’t afford to get that many hotel rooms. Well, not to worry – that’s why you have Anahola Beach House.
Anahola is a beautiful area in Northern Kauai that has some of the most wonderful beaches. The water is blue, the sand is white, and the lush vegetation is vibrant green and smells amazing. And if you want to experience that up close and personally, you don’t want to be stuck in a hotel room. You want to be in a house directly on the beach, so you can walk directly out the back door and onto the sand, right?
The Anahola Beach House can give you that. It is a HUGE house on the beach, just a short hop across a beautiful backyard to get to the water. There are enough rooms to sleep 12 comfortably and more than that if they want to crash on the furniture. Each room has comfortable furniture, wide open spaces, and enough room for several people to maneuver easily. Plus, there are tons of amenities for you and your friends to enjoy.
The outside has a BBQ and patio furniture, so you can eat outside and enjoy the beautiful views as you listen to waves crashing on the beach. Or you can play tackle football on the grass. Your choice. And the inside has free wireless internet access, a giant flat screen tv, a big kitchen that is fully equipped to cook whatever you want to make, and enough space to do whatever you want. You can go out, you can stay in, and you can have a great time this 4th of July weekend with your friends.
So what are you waiting for? Do you want to pay over $200 per night per room for your entire group of friends? Or do you want the best house in the world for only $4,500 per week?? For a group of 12, that is only $375 per person for 7 full days!! And it’s even less with more friends.
So come and visit Kauai and stay at Anahola Beach House. It will be SO worth it.
Okay, the full title of this post should be “Fully Equipped Kitchen on the Beach,” because that is far more accurate when talking about the Hale Ola Guest House. But I went with the shorter title, since that’s the main point of this blog. ☺
As you know, it’s May Munchie Madness this month. So what better way to talk about the munchies than to mention that you don’t have to stay in a hotel! After all, hotels offer you a bedroom with a bathroom. Not much space at all really. But if you want to be able to make your own food whenever you want in the privacy of your own home-away-from-home, then this is the house for you. Hale Ole’s Guest House has a fully equipped kitchen that is just perfect for the foodie on the go.
The cabinets are a beautiful white that offsets the countertops perfectly. And, not only is the ambiance nice, but the kitchen is set up with a coffee maker, tea pot, blender, microwave, oven, dishes, utensils, pots, pans, serving trays, and everything else you’ll need to cook whatever you want. That is what I mean by “fully equipped kitchen.” We’re talking about all of the comforts of cooking at home, along with a beautiful window that features the one thing you can’t see from your kitchen at home: the beach!
Yeah, I suppose I should tell you about the rest of the house, right? That’s only fair. Well, this guest house is on the property of another house, which must be rented separately. But the property more than makes up for the shared space. This house is right on the water! Seriously, you can open your door and walk across the lawn to the beach. It’s that easy. Just wait until you see it. While this might not be a largest house in the world, it’s location makes it worth its weight in gold.
In addition to a great kitchen and beachfront placement, this home sleeps 4 comfortably, with two bedrooms equipped with king-sized beds. Plus, it comes with some great amenities like cable TV, DVD player, stereo with CD player, high quality furnishings, hardwood floors, and more. And while you can probably find a nice hotel on the beach, let’s face it – it will cost you a fortune. You might be spending close to $1,000 a night just on a room with a bathroom! But with this rental home, you get the comforts of home located right on the beach for only $2,400 a WEEK! (Not a night, folks. A week! That’s 7 days of staying in the best place on earth for only $2,400!)
Okay, back to the kitchen. ☺ Because this house is located in Hanalei, you will also be very close to a shopping center, several smaller shops, a farmer’s market, and more. So you will be able to go out daily and pick up fresh fruits and vegetables (grown right here on the island), fresh fish (caught right here on the island), and anything else you desire. And then you can come back to the house and cook!
OR, if you don’t really feel like cooking for the evening, you can always stay in town and enjoy one of the great restaurants, frequented by locals and visitors alike. Don’t you want to give this place a chance? With your family, or together with another couple, you could make this place into a dream vacation get-away.
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?
