Description

Whether you are traveling with your family, extended family, other couples, best friends or your sweetheart, Orchid Hale is an excellent choice of accommodation.

You will always remember the special time you spend here . . . the spacious elegance, the extravagant feeling of indulging yourself in the comforts and pleasures of this extraordinary home. Pamper yourself . . . you'll be glad you did!

The setting is Princeville on the lush north shore of the "Garden Island." The neighborhood is a small collection of custom homes that share a well maintained swimming pool and tennis court. The views are verdant gardens speckled with the colors of tropical flowers and exotic plants against a backdrop of majestic mountains formed millions of years ago.

This is an air conditioned two-story home of 3200 square feet with a large great room, half-bathroom, kitchen and the master suite upstairs. There is an upstairs living room. The master suite has a TV. Downstairs there are two bedrooms, a large living/family room, a den/office and two bathrooms. So, there is plenty of room for everyone to gather together as well as space for anyone to spend quiet moments with a good book or other peaceful endeavor.

Your home away from home was totally renovated recently and has been designed and furnished with great attention to detail. The exquisite hardwood and marble floors as well as the granite counters in the kitchen and vanities in the bathrooms are both luxurious and practical.

Much thought has gone into the furnishings and over-the-top amenities throughout Orchid Hale; one excellent example is the generously equipped gourmet kitchen. In addition to the essentials like sauce and frying pans, baking dishes and other ovenware, cooking utensils and dishes, you will find an big assortment of small appliances such as a coffee grinder, panini grill, pressure cooker, and slow cooker, to name just a few. The chefs in your group will be delighted!

You may want to check out the Sunshine Markets (farmers' markets) that happen in a different town each week day. That's a great place to find fresh produce to include in your meal plans. And, if you would like to dine out during your stay, there is a nice variety of cafes and restaurants right in Princeville as well as in the neighboring town of Hanalei.

The furnished office downstairs has just what you need in case your visit is partly a working vacation: desk, scanner, large monitor, wireless printer and printer paper. The powerful wireless router is easy to access wherever you are in the house with whatever device you choose.

While you are working, the kids and others in your party can play badminton, croquet and volleyball in the spacious back yard. And indoors, there are board games, a Play Station 3 System with a few PS3 games, an assortment of DVDs you can play on the Blu-Ray/DVD and watch on the 73" TV in the downstairs family room or the 63" TV upstairs in the living room. You may even want to watch some of the movies that have been filmed on Kauai over the years.

Just diagonally across the street are the swimming pool and tennis court. Nearby is Makai Golf Club with its wide open spaces and nicely manicured fairways and greens. Even non-golfers can appreciate the ocean and mountain views along the course. Those who enjoy the game will want to challenge themselves on this recently renovated 18-hole course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. There are many beautiful north shore beaches within a short drive of Orchid Hale. We strongly recommend swimming at beaches with a life guard.

Other activities nearby include kayaking, horseback riding, fishing, surfing, windsurfing, helicopter flightseeing tours, hiking, seasonal swimming, snorkeling and tropical botanical garden tours.

We went in with reasonable expectations. But when we opened the front door, we were WOWed!!! It is unbelievable. What a beautiful home. So much attention to detail, from the artwork, the furniture, everything. The layout was incredible. Our first 4 days of our trip was nothing but non stop rain, and this was the perfect home for being “stuck”. The gourmet kitchen made you want to cook! Our kids loved the backyard, as did I. This felt like a $3-$5m home. And it probably is! Sub-Zero refrig and other high end appliances. And the best part, your own garage! Most owners don’t give you access to the garage. These owners do! Mahalo! Made it easy to get into the home with it it getting rained on. And your garage is impeccable. We also enjoyed doing some washes of the kids clothes the high- end washer and dryer in the garage. The beds... one word. Heavenly. Best sleep of my life. My wife’s and kids didn’t want to get out of bed!!! And the floor to ceiling windows with the majestic view of the Hanalei mountains with waterfalls, and the most serene backyard with this amazing canopy tree.
Can’t say enough. We will return. No question.

I cannot say enough good things about this house. It is very large with plenty of room to spread out, clean, beautiful, and has everything you need for your stay (except shampoo and body soap). The yard is gorgeous with so many flowers and fruit trees. The neighborhood is centrally located and so very nice. So many places to walk or jog. You are just a few minutes from a grocery store, gas, and shops/restaurants. Tons of beach supplies including chairs, umbrellas, mats, etc. The kitchen is so well stocked - we were able to host 13 people for a post wedding dinner easily. The master bedroom is upstairs separate from the two bedrooms downstairs. Each level has its own living area and there is an office downstairs. The A/C works perfectly- no hot spots. We would book this house again for sure. It just made our visit to paradise even better!!!

We've stayed in many Air BnBs in both Hawaii & elswhere. This is the best! A clear expression of the Owner's taste; rather than staged from Ikea or Costco. Every piece seems personally chosen. As an orchid nut I also appreciated the garden, superbly done. Be assured that others have visited & loved it.

Kauai is our favorite place in the world. We love this island and her people. We first came in 1998 and we try to come back every year. We enjoyed days on Anini beach or. Hanalei bay. In the evenings we had wonderful meals at the Dolphin, Tiki Aniki , and Happy Talk, 3 of our favorite spots.
Orchid Hale is a well appointed home located in Princeville. The only thing previous visitors did not show the gas grill much love,it was pretty sad. The dryer was on the fritz, the homeowners were working on getting a new one.
These things did not detract from the rest of the home or the beautiful well maintained property it sits on.
This is a great rental for families. We had our almost 2 year old granddaughter with us, she loved playing in the yard and the park just up the road. There also is a community pool and tennis courts for you to enjoy.
The house also had beach chairs, towels, sand toy, yard games and more!
This home and island has so much to offer we would highly recommend it.

We really liked this house. We loved that only the master bedroom is upstairs and the other two are downstairs. We so enjoyed being able to walk to Queen's bath and Hideaway beach. It's a short drive to Foodland and Hanalei Bay. Our whole family would recommend this place. (I only wish we didn't have to drop the key off before our early morning flight. )

This was a gorgeous house, like you were in the middle of a rain forest with all the windows and birds and plants outside. Easy walk to the pool and tennis courts which were literally across the street. We spent the day hiking all the nearby trails and beaches then shaved ice and home for the evening . Very relax full vacation with family . Will visit again.

I'm all about the views and this house has a great one. Would have enjoyed a bigger patio, but it worked okay. The kitchen was great for cooking and plenty of seating for family dinners. House was spacious for family to spread out and air-conditioning cut the hot humid days. Great for evening walks to enjoy the sunset!!

This house is amazing! It is spacious and has all the amenities we could hope for on our trip. We loved the large gourmet kitchen that was really well equipped and organized and enjoyed the views of the beautiful garden during our meals. The kids had so much fun in the outdoor space playing - there was even a croquet game! We also enjoyed playing tennis and using the pool steps away from the house in the morning or afternoon. The location was very convenient to all the areas we wanted to visit in Princeville / Hanalei. Perfect for morning walks either down to the beach near or up to the local town center / park. The beaches, such as Anini and Tunnels, or local restaurants were a short car ride away. We could not be happier with our stay and would recommend this property to anyone. It is definitely on our return list in our future.

 Aloha this was some of our groups first time and some second time but first staying on the North shore. This is such a fantastic place for kids, ours are 7 & 4. We enjoyed riding boogie boards and snorkeling at Tunnels Beach, Hanalei Bay and Anini Beach. Our boat ride to the Napali coast was the highlight for sure! We enjoyed some of the best dinners at the Dolphin, Happy Talk and Kalypso. This is such a well suited home for families and groups, we enjoyed it so much. There isn't anything that was overlooked. Our kids are so upset to leave and we will for sure be back despite the long flight. Thank you so much! Mahalo Kauai, we can't wait to come back.

Aloha! Our 2 weeks here in Princeville has just flown by!

This home is amazing, beautiful and so cozy. I love all of the beautiful artwork, spacious & well appointed kitchen & amazing views from every room.

We created so many special memories at the home. My children (7 & 4 years old) Loved the keyboard. They played Celine Dion's "My heart will go on" and I will remember it forever.

The home is so nice, the yard, plants, geckos, etc. - We didn't even turn on the TV at all!

What a magical place.

We walked to the Princeville resort for sunset dinner & sunrise breakfast. They have the most amazing view.

The kids loved playing at the park & we used the park exercise equipment.

Thank you for all the notes around the house, labeling everything was very helpful.

We have had such a wonderful time in this beautiful home. I very much enjoyed the artifacts and artwork the owner has collected & displayed. Thank you so much for sharing. This island and this home are spectacular!

Our family had a great stay over Thanksgiving. The hosts have put a lot of thought into making the stay a great experience -- thorough labeling, a fantastically-stocked kitchen, and lawn games are just a few of the touches we appreciated. The garden is lovely and the kitchen happily accommodated many Thanksgiving chefs at once!

We enjoyed watching movies, cooking in a great kitchen, walking the area around the home and coffee while watching the chickens. We liked staying in this home because of the view, lots of space, very well equipped kitchen and the outdoor space. Kauai Vacation Rentals did extremely well at meeting our needs. They were helpful Y provided a lot of information on the area and house. Diana gave us a tour of the house when we arrived and that was very helpful.

We enjoyed everything about this home. Such a quiet (except for the rooster at 4:30 am everyday) neighborhood. We took walks every morning and enjoyed the scenery and nice people. Food in Hanalei and all around was exceptional. Shave ice was our best friend while we were here delicious! Helicopter Tour with Blue Hawaiian was the high light of our trip. We hiked Waimea Canyon, ouch! Canyon Trail! Took a boat trip of Na Pali coast it was choppy but fun!

Loved how everything was labeled!! Ample space for 2 families. Close walking proximity to many sights. Homey feeling with 3+ bedrooms. Air conditioning was a key need for our family and we were able to eat at home for may of our meals. Kauai Vacation Rentals was Fantastic and Thames was very helpful with may hints of places to visit and where to go. This was a Bucket list trip for us and we wanted a less developed island feeling. Napali Pirates Zodiac tour and CJM Stables horse back riding were phenomenal! Tahiti Nui in Hanalei Bay was fantastic to eat at, we ate there 2x.

Our family has travelled extensively over the years, and we have stayed at many beautiful hotels and vacation rentals. Our stay at Orchid Hale was by far the best vacation we’ve had as a family thus far. The home is absolutely beautiful. My mother and father came along with us on our vacation, and my mom and I had so much fun creating meals together in the gourmet kitchen. You can tell that the owners really want to share their home with you and make it a very special experience. They have provided so many “extras” in order for that to happen. Extra supplies and appliances in the kitchen, recipe books, beautiful and plentiful linens, pool and beach toys, lawn games, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, locally made lotions and toiletries in the bathrooms and the list goes on and on. 
The art in the home is truly amazing. The garden is also so very inspiring. It really made me woe my Zone 2 garden in Canada! My dad and I really enjoyed visiting with the very likeable gardener (Laurel) on a few occasions as she gave us lessons on all the plants in the garden. Several times throughout the visit we would come home to gifts of bags of fruit that Laurel would leave for us on the porch. 
The area within Princeville is perfect. It is a short walk to a quiet, postcard-perfect beach and a short drive to all amenities. I wasn’t much of a seafood lover before our trip, but the restaurants are so outstanding and the fish so fresh, I’m now a convert! The pool and tennis courts are directly across a quiet street. The area and house are safe for kids and perfect for families of all ages. 
We can’t wait to go back again. In all the countries and continents we’ve visited, this is the first time we all agreed that we absolutely will be going back for a second (and hopefully third and fourth…) visit(s). Our deepest gratitude to the owners for sharing their little piece of paradise with us.

The sofa at this house was and still is very comfy! We also thought the master bed was satisfying and the kitchen was beautiful! Getting to enjoy each others company around the kitchen table be it sharing a meal or playing a game was our favorite time of the day. Watching our nephew crawl for the first time on your kitchen floor was simply amazing. Also all of the labeling throughout the house made everything so easily accessible. The beautiful garden and view of the mountains set a wonderful tone for all of our days. We also liked all of the roosters and chickens in the yard.

Our family from Eugene, Oregon has fortunately stayed in many nice rentals over the many years we travel. But your house goes on a pedestal. Truly your kitchen has it all and then some. The grounds are rich with tropical foliage, lizards, geckos, gardenias, the tree, magnificent. The roosters need to group together for an early morning pajama party with ear plugs I got used to them. The home is extra cozy with firm bed mattress, all the art work placed perfectly to reflect the furnishings. These last 2 weeks have melted between a few hikes, swims, shopping we stay focused on farmer's markets and bringing all the produce and preparing our meals in our spacious kitchen. If we are lucky we will try and stay here next year, Mahalo.

I just had the opportunity to stay at the lovely villa "Orchid Hale," on the island of Kauai, courtesy of Kauai Vacation Rentals, and was so amazed again at the tranquility and beauty of this island and particularly this home. Orchid Hale is situated on the North Shore in the prestigious Princeville community. This home feels like your own home and not a vacation rental. It has beautiful views of the Na Pali mountains and an expansive yard filled with tropical plants. The villa boasts three bedrooms, all richly appointed and the furnishings are eclectic and tasteful. An antique canoe rests between the first and second floor and is just lovely. As a born foodie, what I love about this home the most is the gourmet lovers kitchen. The owners of this villa have not left any detail behind. Each cabinet and drawer is equipped with state-of-the-art utensils and accessories that any chef would adore. The home is inviting and comfortable for six or more adults and also has a private office en suite. I love this villa and would love to stay there again. Hanalei Bay is a ten-minute drive from the villa and has many nice restaurants and boutiques. I give Orchid Hale two thumbs up! Thank you Kauai Vacation Rentals for bringing this to my attention!
