About this listing
A love for Kauai is why we bought this beautiful, remodeled 2/2 end-unit in Princeville in 2015. It was previously occupied by a couple that lived there full time. It's right across from the Westin resort and the forest hiking trail to Anini Beach (note, it's a forest trail requiring mild physical fitness). Large screen TV/Cable, WiFi, phone, beach toys, etc. Quiet location away from the street; no one above or below you (it's a townhouse not a condo). Fully equipped kitchen.
About 1300ft2, very spacious townhouse, two bedrooms with a cal king size bed in the master bedroom and queen size in the downstairs bedroom, a couch in the living room and an inflatable queen size mattress. We advertise this unit for 4 people but do not charge for extra people up to six, using the inflatable mattress. This was an "owners" unit until recently when we bought it. It was remodeled very nicely by the previous owners that lived in it, and is in great condition. Please note that the upstairs bedroom with the king size bed is designed as a very large loft. Please see the picture "Master Bedroom". Please note, there is no AC in the unit; none of these units have an AC and thus it's scratched off in the Amenities list. We do have large ceiling fans everywhere in the unit.
We have CableTV with 300 channels (though you should be outside, not watching TV) :), 30Mbps internet, AppleTV, WiFi, and unlimited US calling set up for you.
We've tried to provide for all the common beach accessories including boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling equipment, etc. Please understand that these are provided for free for your use, and we cannot always immediately replace an item broken by the previous guest (just not enough time). If you find that an item needs to be replaced, please do let us know immediately. The beach gear is stored outside, in the patio storage. There is a key hanging on the wall by the kitchen. There is a BBQ outside at the patio as well. This unit is at the end of the Puamana development, inside Princeville, right across the Westin, and right by the forest trail that goes down to Anini Beach.
Finally, please note that the airbnb price that is quoted per night includes the 13.42% Hawaiian GET/TAT tax.
Please be sure to check the House Manual after booking. There is a link to a document that has directions, suggestions, etc.
You will have access to everything in the complex including the swimming pool.
Interaction with guests
We have a property manager that lives in Puamana so you'll always have access to someone. However, we're easily accessible over email to try to make your vacation a great one. Kauai is a magical island, we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do with our families. There is a lockbox on the door so you can check in late at your convenience.
Puamana is in Princeville, a beautiful development in the northern part of Kauai. You can walk to Anini Beach, or drive there with your gear in 15 min (it takes 10 min to walk using the forest trail, or 10-15 min to drive the short distance since you have to exit Princeville and get on to the highway for a short distance). There is grocery story right in Princeville along with some stores and restaurants. The Westin is right across, and St Regis is a 5 min drive.
You must rent a car in Kauai because you'll want to explore all of the beaches that are nearby, but a driving distance. Kauai is paradise. Do check out all of the beaches around Princeville - Anini, Tunnels, Hanalei Bay, and definitely Ke'e. Tunnels beach is hard to park at, the signs are not that helpful, but it's worth the hunt. Get there early because there isn't a lot of parking. Ke'e also fills up early, but there is another, larger parking nearby as well. Anini has plenty of parking; Hanalei Bay has a larger parking lot as well.
Other things to note
** PLEASE PLEASE do not leave food out on counters, floor etc, including leftovers from the night before. Open food invites ants and other Hawaiian critters. All food should be in the fridge or in closed, sealed bags if it's out. PLEASE NOTE, and this is very important - the probability of encountering cockroaches in Hawaii is very high. They are not dangerous, and every development strays periodically, but they cannot be eliminated completely, especially in the north part of Kauai where it's very tropical. If bugs freak you out, please, just book a hotel room on a high floor, where the probability of bugs getting up there is lower.
** Please 'clean' the BBQ by letting it burn for about 5 min on high, after cooking and don't forget to turn it off afterwards.
** Please put back all beach gear in the closet as you found them and rinse them off from any sand.
** Please don't put clothes in the washer that have sand on them - hose them off outside first.
- Absolutely no smoking and no pets please. If you have a support animal with a doctor's prescription, we need to see and verify it that prior to booking.
- Please observe quiet hours after 10pm.
