Awesome views
Review Date: 11/17/2022
We enjoyed our stay here. The condo was very clean. It was very well equipped. The location was perfect for us. It was an easy access to the main highway and a safe residential neighborhood. Quiet. Mountain views on one side of the house. Ocean views on the other side. Close to scenic areas/lookouts. Close to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. Highly recommended.
Great place!

Great and comfortable place. Clean and lovely location.
Relaxing area in Princeville
Review Date: 07/28/2022
The condo is in a great nice neighborhood in Princeville close to grocery and shops. The area looks safe and quiet. It was a little confusing with the directions with lock to get in condo on their app. It said use the code to open lock box for a key. There was a lock box by the door but you don’t actually use the lock box or need any physical key. The code is actually for a digital pad on the door itself no need of the lock box. Also when we enter the condo’s master was very smelly due to toilet full of poop not cleaned up before we arrived late at night so we spent the night with very smelly room. We did contact the property management who did responded promptly the next day to clean up the mess. We were told that a plumber had to unclog the toilet and maid forgot to come back to clean up. We had some issues with not having WiFi for a couple of days and other minor maintenance issues. The property management was apologetic. The unit and the building is on the older side but otherwise was comfortable and has everything we needed for our stay. Pleasant area overall.

Outstanding location for enjoying the view and sound of the ocean
Review Date: 12/19/2022
We usually avoid ground level units but this one has an unobstructed view and a lanai above ground level. It is possible to walk below the lanai but no one did so while we were there so it was very private. The proximity to the ocean was delightful. It is furnished with 3 double-size beds with two of the beds in the master bedroom. The windows are well designed to catch the breezes and the temperature was comfortable during our visit.
Great Princeville Stay
Review Date: 10/20/2022
Alii Kai 3103 is a nice two bedroom condo with a clear view of the Pacific, perhaps forty feet below. The unit is not overly fancy, and there are places where the rust has a foothold, but it was perfect for us. Well equipped kitchen, good washer and dryer, nice shower in the master bath. Oddly, there is no mail service, which was a problem with Amazon, but the property manager accepted the packages for us. I'd go back.
Condo with a view !!!
Review Date: 06/19/2022
Loved the layout and the proximity to pool. The view of paradise was incredible ! A definite return !
Lovely condo and location!
Review Date: 04/20/2022
We loved our stay at Alii Kai rm 3103! Beautiful condo and view. Our only complaint was that only 1 burner was working on the stove while we were there, and they weren't able to get it fixed. When we checked in, one burner wouldn't come on, one knob wouldn't turn, and one was missing a knob altogether. Since we had brought food and planned to cook all of our meals, this was not only a nuisance, but caused us to need to eat out more as our meals required more than one burner at a time (and we assumed the condo would have that). We did request some sort of discount to make up for that, but we never heard anything back, even though we were told that we would. Other than that, I would highly recommend this condo!

Our stay was awesome! Hearing the crashing of the ocean waves and seeing numerous whales made our stay absolutely wonderful. The VRBO itself was very nice, clean, parking was close and a great location.
Great View from the balcony!

Cliffside beauty in Princeville
Review Date: 07/22/2021
Over the course of two weeks, my family stayed at four different locations across two Hawaiian islands. This condo had the best view of anywhere we stayed. It is worth it to stay here simply for having this balcony right by a cliff with 180 degree views off the north coast of Kauai. Words can't describe how beautiful it was.

The unit itself was spacious for my family of five. It was very clean and well-maintained, and the property manager did a great job providing everything we needed. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, and it was helpful to have the washer and dryer. The unit was really hot when we arrived, but once we were able to open it up and get a cross breeze, things cooled down quickly.

One thing I want to point out that is hard to see from the listing is the set-up of the bedrooms. The room shown with two queen beds was designed as the master bedroom for the unit. As such, the master bathroom is directly off of that bedroom, that bedroom has a vanity, there is more closet space, etc. The bedroom that is shown with a queen by itself and that I figured was the master is a lot smaller and across the hall from a smaller, not as nice bathroom. Deal breaker? No. But it was annoying to me as the mom in a family of all boys.
Everything is perfect!

Very nice place to stay! My nephew enjoyed it very much
Ocean view forever
Review Date: 05/23/2021
The Condo is on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
WE saw and photographed Green Sea turtles from our windows. There is a turtle cave below the cliffs. Can be dangerous to get to and waves can be rough. We saw and filmed spinner dolphins attacking a school of fish, jumping out of the water from our balcony. Everything in condo worked and a large number of cooking utensils. Unit was clean and had extras, i.e. a fishing pole- boogie board, and chairs for beach. Parking was easy and right out front. The building is number 3. The building is the last building on right. The GPS will tell you its sooner and to your left. Beds were comfortable and bathroom was great. Would stay again and would recommend to others.
North shore during a Covid year
Review Date: 03/13/2021
Quite good after the isolation. And Covid testing or over.
Amazing ocean views!!
Review Date: 01/03/2021
We stayed in this condo for 2 months. It is Probably the closest location (for a condo) to the ocean that you will get here. My husband and I referred to it as the cruise ship with a balcony. Really mesmerizing!! The unit is very private, and comfortable. On the older side though. We did not use the pool, for the water was quite cold. We have booked this unit again for next year. Also, the rental staff was wonderful. Very helpful with any issues, or questions that we had. Would totally recommend this place to anyone looking for a little peace, and tranquility.
Big wave Panarama!
Review Date: 03/14/2020
I thought the view was wonderful! Overall, it was a very good trip. The unit needs a large flat screen TV in the living room for sporting events such as the Super Bowl. The mattress on the bed in the master bedroom nearest to the window could either use a much firmer mattress, or, at minimum, have a plywood sheet cut and put under the mattress. Many of your renters are older and have lower back problems. Housekeeping was quite good, but next year I would like to be able to set the dates for these several mid stay cleanings rather than the housekeeper coming When it is convenient for her.

Nice view
Review Date: 11/13/2022
Overall the place is nice and clean with a great view of the ocean.There is no A/C but lots of fans and a nice breeze at night.A request is that the kitchen needs basic cooking ingredients like salt, pepper, sugar and a little more toilet paper. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

It was great to be back in Alii Kai 4303
Review Date: 01/14/2023
We once again really enjoyed our stay in this Alii Kai condo. The views and sounds of the ocean are absolutely fabulous. We had a couple of issues during our stay for which we sought assistance from the Kauai Kahuna staff, and found them to be responsive and professional. Thanks!
Overall nice stay!
Review Date: 10/03/2022
Unit was good but very hot with no air conditioning. Ceiling fans helped but needed more additional fans. We arrived late at night so would recommend someone stopping by the day of check in and opening all of the windows to at least allow some air into the unit. Also, units downstairs have screen doors so that you can leave the door open..we would suggest that the owner have a screen door installed - would have made a tremendous difference on the airflow...we didn’t leave the door open due to possibility of bugs/mosquitoes. Other than the heat we were very happy! Management company was great and very quick to respond when we called with small issue.
Private Princeville Paradise
Review Date: 07/05/2022
We had a wonderful stay with our two daughters. The location is phenomenal, with a great ocean view and sound of the ocean from all rooms. Short drive to see the sunset. Very private and quiet. We would definitely stay here again.
loved this place
Review Date: 01/10/2022
This place had such a beautiful view. And we loved hearing the crashing waves. Spacious for a family of four. We loved the place and would stay there again.
October in Kauai
Review Date: 11/01/2021
First of all the view is spectacular ! There is a hidden sea turtle cave directly below the deck you can carefully hike down to! The place is spacious, a little outdated, but honestly if your not staying inside all the time it’s not a big deal. Probably not a place for young children , the owners have some expensive old furniture. Overall, we absolutely love Kauai ( favorite of all the islands) and the view just can’t be beat at this condo!
Alii Kai Spectacular
Review Date: 07/31/2021
Our stay in Alii Kai 4303 was outstanding. Comfortable, well-appointed, and the views can't be beat! Recommended for couples or families. The Alii Kai I pool area was great for us and our school age grandson guests. Love this pkace!
A place with an amazing ocean view
Review Date: 07/29/2021
We had a great experience staying at Alii Kai. The view from the balcony and the two bedrooms was spectacular.. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and appliances. Kauai Kahuna Vacation Rentals sent all the required information on time. This is a great place to stay in north Kauai. Would definitely want to come back.

Alii Kai 5301 Wonderful Experience
Review Date: 06/02/2022
FANTASTIC - everything we needed, conveniently located for north shore activities. Quite far to south shore ones though. But beautiful views from everywhere we looked from the condo. Pleasantly surprised to find beach towels, chairs and umbrella fir our use. We would stay here again.
Enjoy the sounds of the Pacific from Princeville
Review Date: 10/22/2021
Sunny, relaxing condo with beautiful views and sounds of the ocean. A warm rain refreshes the landscape and keeps the lush vegetation green and growing. The charming village of Hanalei is 10 minutes where you will find good food and nice, easy beaches.
The condo does have a flight of stairs at entry which allows you to be high enough to appreciate the views. The kitchen has every utensil you would ever need and there are Beach chairs and towels to use so you don’t have to bring it buy. The management called twice during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed! Very nice touch!
Wonderful place to stay
Review Date: 09/27/2021
The condo was so nicely done, very clean and very well appointed. Beautiful views and loved having two bedrooms with ocean views.
Beautiful and quiet Resort
Review Date: 09/23/2021
Views of the ocean were spectacular and falling to sleep to the ocean’s waves was peaceful. The condo is clean and the master bathroom upgrade is nice. Plenty of linens, blankets, towels, and beach towels along with 2 extra blowup mattress.

Any negative comment is the WiFi network and password was incorrect and management (Evan was very nice and tried to have someone come out to fix the problem,) but who wants to stick around when the Island needs to be explored! Three days later I noticed in the book a prior quest scribbled in the correct WiFi network and password.
2nd Stay in this Condo - just as great as the 1st!
Review Date: 05/02/2021
This is our 2nd time renting this exact condo. We love the views and sound of the ocean! Nice upgrade on the tv. The Property Management is very courteous and checked up on us a couple times to make sure everything was ok. Even though there is no AC it is cool enough with the fans (not sure if this would be the case in Summer months). Traffic is rough right now because of the landslide but we still made it to Hanalei Bay. We highly recommend staying here, in Winter and Spring months especially!
We saw Wales!
Review Date: 04/16/2021
Several notes from our stay...

First, anyone that previously commented on not having a full ocean view needs to shush. The ocean views are amazing.

Second, the kitchen is very well equipped for anyone that likes to cook. Good selection of pots and pans as well as cooking utensils.

Third, the place is beautiful, and location is great. We were very comfortable the entire time. Despite the road closures on Hanalei Hill, we were able to twice make it into Hanalei for full day experiences. Highly recommend lunch at Tahiti Nui! We also met the full-time residents below us who were very warm and welcoming.

Finally, we saw wales! We brought a pair of binoculars with us from home and had a full 40 minutes trading off watching wales breach and splash down. So impressive.

Highly recommend this property to everyone!

Kauai North Shore
Review Date: 03/20/2020
The unit was very clean. The pool and bbq area were also close and clean. The unit needed and update especially the kitchen and bathrooms. I have rented similiar 2bd room units in Kauai over the past 6 years and each unit was in much better shape, This unit was stuck in the 1980's. The furniture and cabinets were a bit shabby and the photo's on the web site misrepresented the actual unit.
Great Stay
Review Date: 02/18/2020
Overall great place. It needs a bit of updating and some minor repairs but nothing that took away from stay. This place is 20 steps from pool and the morning rounds of birds was fabulous. Don't feed them or they will stay. We watched a few neighbors make that mistake. This location is on the North side of island and is great for doing North side stuff. If you want to do South side activities you will need to leave early as traffic is bad going south. We really enjoyed the place highly recommend.

Fun and Relaxing Stay

We loved our stay at Alii Kai 8H. Great location and view. Very comfortable unit. Kitchen could use updating and definitely some kitchen utensils such as pots and pans could be improved.
Nice stay in Princeville
Review Date: 08/16/2022
We had a nice stay. There was no A/C, but luckily there was a nice breeze each afternoon to help keep the place cool and plenty of fans to use at night. The location was convenient to explore the north side of the island. Property was clean and the pool was nice.
Kauai is the most beautiful place on the planet!
Review Date: 02/12/2022
(First, we are from Dayton, Ohio, not Cartin.)

The location of our condo is fantastic. The furnishings, while adequate, are poorly suited to the size of the unit. In particular, one of the oversized side tables was placed behind a couch, extending into the hallway, right in the way of traffic. I severely stubbed my toe on this table, and so I moved it for the rest of our stay.

The kitchen is very well supplied with cooking gear. However, the kitchen is not updated. The cabinets are old built-ins, and, the kitchen design is such that some cabinets are hard to reach. All in all, it is merely an adequate kitchen.
The bathrooms are also merely adequate, with old painted cabinetry. The mirror has some flaking on the edges. The hot water in the main bathroom flowed intermittently, coming and going. This problem did not occur in the guest bathroom.

We were happy to find some beach equipment in the closet, but the chairs provided were not of high quality.

All in all, this unit is merely adequate, and is in need of better furnishings and a complete redesign.

Also, the managers of this unit need to correct the provided literature. The WiFi password listed in both the literature given by Kauai Kahuna and in the binder in the unit is incorrect. We found the correct password in a small frame on the kitchen counter.

The managers of Alii Kai also need to do better. The gas grills are ancient and need either repair or replacement. The burners are severely rusted, and I couldn’t get all the burners lit on some of the grills. Also the hot tub was working on our first night, but the heater went out, and for the remainder of our 30-day stay, we had no hot tub.

In spite of the “merel6 adequate” condo, the location is great! We loved the views of the oceans and of the mountains from our lanai.

None of the shortcomings of the unit affected our stay. Kauai is far too beaut
very nice place in a beautiful location
Review Date: 12/18/2021
the Condo was very clean and neat. Had a nice, but obstructed view of the ocean. Had a couple of minor problems that were taken care of by Kauai Kahuna. We would stay there again
Great Stay!

Great location and view - well equipped, comfortable king bed in back bedroom. We love Princeville for the convenient location and access on the north shore. This unit is well situated and in a great neighborhood. View and hear the ocean :)

We had a great time. Our unit was beautiful and the view was spectacular. We had a little problem with a cane spider visiting but the management staff were very helpful in dealing with the (very large) visitor!!!
Fantastic vacation home
Review Date: 08/28/2021
Location, location, location. This place is so convenience if you'd like to explore the north area beaches and trails. We had the huge advantage when the landslide forced the road closure during the workday. We can get in and out of the area easily as we literally lived next to the entrance. The unit is renovated recently and the sunset view is speechless. We highly recommend this home!
Wonderful and Ideal
Review Date: 05/11/2021
I spent 6 months here. I couldn’t have been happier. Apartment is modern, beds are comfortable, I can’t think of anything in the apartment, kitchen or otherwise that they haven’t thought off. The gorgeous view of the mountain in the morning is accompanied with the view of the ocean on thee sides. Since the apt is on the second floor and is a corner unit it makes location superior. For a short time I stayed at the bluff building but crushing waves make it noisy to sleep whereas in this apt you hear gentle sound of wave. The bluff is 2 min walking where you can enjoy whales jumping and giant waves in the season. Turtle cove 2 min away. It’s Princeville so everything is close. Plenty of birds singing if that’s your thing. Oh, yes rainbows, plenty of rainbows - even seem a whale jump under a rainbow
Very good
Review Date: 03/10/2020
Even though this upstairs rental is in need of some updating and repairs, we enjoyed our stay in it. It has a lovely lounge area with a view across the pool to the ocean and is situated in a beautiful area with sculptured garden that are fantastically managed. The beds were comfortable and the plumbing functions well. The kitchen utensils were not great and the cupboards were very old and some musty smelt musty. Some louvre windows were difficult to close completely and appeared rusted (no doubt from the sea air). The stove and oven were super. In all we would gladly return here and recommend.

We loved HBV 26. Very cute and comfy. Well stocked kitchen. Beautiful of the mountains and close to hideaway beach.
Gorgeous and Comfy Stay!
Review Date: 08/07/2022
We loved staying in this property and would definitely stay here again. Super clean, Amenities were perfect, the view was breath-taking (rainforest from patio, ocean out the front across the street from a sidewalk and bench to view sunsets), and it was a close walk to Hideaway Beach and a short drive to Hanalei/Princeville. It was just my husband and I so we didn’t use the 2nd bedroom but it would fit our three boys perfectly (one camps out on the floor). Would love to come back!

Hawaii Dream Trip Come True
Review Date: 11/19/2021
Beautiful and comfortable-like being at your friend's nice vacation home. Views from every window, sunsets every evening, birds singing. Enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the morning and looking across the lush vegetation to the mountains and waterfalls. I highly recommend this vocational rental.
Really an incredible place
Review Date: 12/18/2020
If you're looking around at different vacation rentals on the North Shore, and this one is open, go ahead and stop now and book this. It's really that good.

We came to Kauai and stayed here for 4 months during the summer of the coronavirus shutdown, working remotely for that time. We woke up with the sounds of the waves out front, birds out the back, and little else.

This is very well-equipped with just about everything you would want, to the point that it's clear that the owners probably spend quite a bit of time there.

Location is great, you can walk a minute down the street for an amazing view (where the neighborhood tends to gather to view the sunset), or walk a few minutes the other way to Hideaways Beach or the beach at the Princeville Resort (now empty).

Other vacation rentals on Kauai have issues with getting too hot in the mid-afternoon, but this one always gets a consistent cool breeze. Even in the hottest days of the summer it was cool with the windows cracked, especially downstairs.

Internet is great here, I was working remotely for a mainland company without any hiccups. I measured about 170Mbps down / 20mbps up.
