Description

'Hale 'O Imi Loa' (Hawaiian for 'House of Christopher', and named after our son Chris) is located in a quiet, remarkably beautiful residential area of Princeville, in a charming cul-de-sac with a view of Makana Mountain, renowned for the 'Bali Hai' rock, recognized in dozens of Hollywood movies. If peace and quiet is your thing, this is the place for you. Best described as modest, cozy, quiet, and cottage-like. Access (either through hiking, walking, or driving) to major attractions is literally minutes away: island helicopter tours, horseback riding, golfing, zipping, scuba diving, beaches

Privacy and quiet are the hallmarks of this home, and is a major reason they decided to own it. Staying here has more of a 'this is what it feels like to live in Hawaii' quality and less like being surrounded by hustle and bustle. The property is very child-friendly, has a variety of huge palm trees, and numerous varieties of flora and fauna. The swishing of palm trees and the soft sound of occasional showers adds to a truly unique tropical experience. Tables and chairs in both front and back yards (grass in the backyard, red bricked patio in the front) invite breakfast, dinner, relaxation.

There is a park behind this home and property where you can take long walks and enjoy jogging and running. This is a wonderful place to enjoy the great outdoors and children and grandchildren can play and have fun too. There are tables in both the front and back yards as well as one by the BBQ for your convenience while grilling. Youngsters (and youngsters at heart) just love to play ball in the wide open space. You will certainly appreciate the convenience of the lovely Hawaiian-style fully curtained garden shower just off the lanai. It's great for rinsing off after coming home from the beach.

Guest comments:

"Very comfortable home. Everything we need is here. The house is cozy in a very nice area. We feel at home and like all the books about Kauai, books to read and very good collection of DVDs." Edward G., California

"Beautiful home which suited our needs for our stay. Spacious & close to beaches & shopping. Very quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the seclusion yet not being too far from things." Amy M., Florida

"We are a family of three with a 2-yr. old. This home was perfect for our time on Kauai...I was also able to enjoy two books out of the owner's library. We could have packed much lighter considering it is a well-stocked house in a convenient location to the Princeville shopping center...A perfect, tranquil setting that we hope to visit again and again. Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us." Allison K., California

Had a great time in this place! Very home-y with the typical old-school Kauai feel. Nothing fancy, but everything was clean, comfortable (beds too!), and just what we needed for our stay. Wifi was strong and the open patio and backyard was nice too, especially if working remotely.

Customer service was great and very friendly from the Kauai Vacation Rentals team!

Only downside would be the chickens/roosters that crowed all night long. Nothing some rain sounds couldn’t fix... just be prepared! Overall, still a great place to stay in Princeville!

Upon arrival we found the home to be in a great location and great evening breezes. Furniture very outdated and in poor repair. Windows hard to open due to rust. Washing machine never worked entire stay. Bed skirts had mildew stains. Electric cooking range, hard to read settings as number and finish missing. Floors had gritty sand on them. Plan on waking up at 4am due to the rooster next door crowing non-stop. Beach chairs rusted. Could be a great home with updates and paint. Has a good floor plan.

This is a small house yet well equipped. Beds are comfy and lots of towels including beach towels and toys. It’s basic and dated inside though so don’t expect modern. We had some maintenance issues during our stay and the company was great at getting the work done. The outside porch is wonderful for rainy days and the most comfortable place to be. The inside furniture is not comfortable and the upstairs bedroom not a component of the rental if you see photos it’s off limits. A new coat of paint and a bit of TLC would go along way for this kitchen and bathroom yet it works for a family of 4 who are there for beaches and a place to crash. Unfortunatley we Airbnb our vacation properties so look for the extra things that make a home nice to stay at and the livingroom furniture would benefit from a more comfortable couch and chairs for the rainy days when you want to be inside.

If I could do it all over again, it would be a hard pass. Though the price was reasonable, there was aspects of the house that I really didn’t like.

Like how run down and a bit dingy it all was. The place could use some serious updating. The wicker furniture in the living room was none too pleasant or comfortable. The full-size beds were a bit too small for my wife and I as well.

Unfortunately because of all the roosters on the property we had to close all the windows at night to get any sleep and instead listen to creaking of the ceiling fan in the bedroom. I’ve been to Kauai a few times and this was by far the loudest I’ve heard the roosters. Last but not least was the smell outside at certain times during the day. The place smelled like a chicken coop because of all the chickens living on the property.

The neighborhood on the other hand was very nice and there was a beautiful park and golf course within walking distance.

Wonderful as always. In the middle of Princeville, near all conveniences. The house is modest in size but well laid out, best for a family of 3 or two couples. Nicely decorated, lots of books and videos for entertaining adults/kids. Would be more adaptable if one of the two bedrooms had separate beds (or a king bed) rather than each with a queen bed. The covered lanai is the best part of the house, in the quiet back yard surrounded by trees/high bushes. Private, beautiful, peaceful (except for a really irritating rooster this year living beside the house, which has not been the case in prior years). The house is now well-equipped with beach chairs, umbrella, towels etc (was not always so.) There is definitely some long-deferred maintenance in the kitchen, which needs new or at least repaired cabinetry, which has been troublesome for several years (we have been back many times). If the kitchen were renewed a bit and the beds sorted out, the house would be faultless for what it is.

This was a great place to stay for my husband and I. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the equipment you could need, the porch was great place to relax, and the house really met all of our needs. It's in a quiet neighborhood and has an outdoor shower to boot. It's really close to a lot of great Kauai experiences. Recommend for couples, families, or a few friends.

Cute, comfortable house with all the amenities you could wish for - Wifi, large screened lanai, grill, patio and furniture, modern kitchen well stocked with equipment. The location is in a quiet residential neighborhood with beautiful landscaping and privacy. Why stay in a condo or "resort" (fancy hotel room) when for the same price or less you can have your own space with a full kitchen and comfortable living? 

We stayed in early January - the surf was incredible, the whales breaching off shore from the nearby lighthouse lookout...great part of Kauai to stay on with lots to do, and not so far north that you're dealing with the one-way bridges and slow road. 

We highly recommend this home!
