Are you looking for the absolute perfect condo for your once in a lifetime vacation to Kauai? Do you want breath taking views from almost every room? Do you want to be within walking distance to multiple beaches? How about be close to shops and dining? Do you want luxury amenities at a reasonable price? Well look no further as you have found Heaven on Earth at Pu’u Po’a 313.
Almost every room has a view of the ocean but unlike most other Pu’u Po’a units, ours is not just a view of the wide span of the big blue – we sit closer to the edge of the cliff and can watch the waves crashing against the cliff and reefs below. We can see the patterns of the reefs below and the multiple shades of green and blue in the water. And if we look hard enough, we can find a sea turtle or two. In the winter, it’s perfect for whale watching. And if one of the North Shore rain showers happens to bring you inside, you can still feel like you are right on the beach watching all the waves go by….
We are within walking distance to two beaches! Walk along the west side of the Pu’u Po’a property and you will find a hiking trail that takes you to one of the most sought after beaches on the island, Kaweonui Beach also known as Hideaways. The trail is steep and difficult (locals have put a rope there to hold onto!) but once you are down, you will find pristine water with some of the greatest snorkeling ever!
The beach has plenty of natural shade and could arguably be one of the best spots to watch the sunset – just be sure to hike back up before it gets too dark!
In addition to Hideaways, Pu’u Po’a beach is a 10 minute walk along a path on the east side of The Princeville Resort. This is where the locals go to swim out to reach the biggest surfing waves. This beach offers snorkeling, surfing and lots of sun bathing. There is even a pool side pub at The Princeville Resort, Nalu Kai Grill and Bar, to enjoy food and drink.
As for other nearby dining, there is no better experience than a Sunday Brunch at the The Princeville Resort next door overlooking Hanalei Bay, watching rainbows form over Bali Hai and see the surfers below catch a wave. Oh yeah! And then there is the fabulous food – coconut french toast, green smoothies, mango parfaits, your choice of any tropical juice and so much more!! Get there early for the best seating.
For a more casual menu, walk to Hideways Pizza in the Pali Ke Kua complex on the other side of Pu’u Po’a and find all sorts of Italian options with “gianormous” (my kids tell me that is a real word :-)) salads and fantastic bread!
Drive 2 miles to the shoppes at Princeville that have a little something for everyone…all your basics are there such as groceries, a bank, post office, and realtors abound but you will also find art, music, toys, Hawaiian soaps and lotions, clothing, jewelry, shave ice, and many more dining options too.
Five minutes further down the road and you’ve reached Hanalei with a more eclectic atmosphere and 3 blocks worth of more shoppes, restaurants and beach rentals – kayaks, paddle boards, surfing lessons, NaPali Catamaran Trips, Helicopter tours and more.
Did I mention Princeville is home to the Makai Club Golf Course?
I might not have to convince you any further to come to the North Shore or even why Pu’u Po’a is in the best location, but Why choose our condo over all the others? Click Here for Virtual Tour
1) The Ocean Views. Our unit is an end unit so we have extra windows in the kitchen that most others don’t have and again because of our location, ours is not your ordinary ocean view. We watch the waves crash against the cliff and reefs.
2)The Sounds. We wanted a place where we could not only see the ocean but hear it and smell it too. Our unit is in the only building situated so the trade winds perfectly flow through and we can keep our windows open to hear the gentle roar of the magnificent ocean all day and all night.
3)The Stars. In May, the milky way sits right above our unit and the brilliance of the stars is astounding in the middle of the pacific. Our unit is on the other end of the complex from the pool which some may find that a drawback however we found the noise and the lights from the pool too disruptive for our star gazing and the pool is still just a short walk away. One of our favorite things in the world to do is to sit out on the lanai and count how many falling stars we can see.
People from all over Princeville come to the sunset viewing spot directly next to our building. Simply walk out the door and go around the building and you have front row seating to the brilliant sunsets of Kauai.
5) The Air.
Our building is unique in that it faces Northeast and the trades winds cool off the unit naturally.
People visit Kauai and want all the sights, sounds and smells of the ocean they can experience with outdoor living so most like to keep the windows open. In our unit you can do so because we don’t have the direct afternoon sun beating in and a perfect breeze flows through to keep the unit cool while our atrium keeps the unit light and bright.
6) The Art. We have decorated our home with art from local artists bringing out the beauty and uniqueness of the island of Kauai.
Our home is designed for elegant casual living with the cultural flare of eco friendly bamboo furniture, mother of pearl mirrors, Kauai carved paddles and replicas of traditional Hawaiian canoes.
7) The Touches of Home.
Our vacations are our greatest memories and we want the same for you. We’ve added all the conveniences from home and more.
After a hard days’ play, you need some good rest so our bedrooms have high quality king sized mattresses with 400 count linens to help you sleep well and be ready for the next day!
The bathrooms have luxury plush bath towels, large beach towels and plenty of places to hang your suits to dry. We offer hair dryers and curling irons in each one as well.
Our full kitchen is stocked with things you won’t find in most other vacation rentals like a spice rack, a crock pot and a waffle maker too.
Although we have free wifi, cable TV, a bose stereo and phone, we also offer something that most homes don’t have – the opportunity to disconnect with electronics and reconnect with one another.
Growing up my father would only allow us to have one television because he wanted us all together in one space. We offer only one television in the living area and truly hope instead you will find entertainment looking out the atrium windows and at the stars and at the sunsets together. And if not, we’ve filled a cupboard full of family games to bring back the conversations and the laughs that are meant to be had between family and friends.
We’ve made our best effort to give you a few the things you might want to enjoy the activities and adventures waiting for you here on Kauai. The lanai features a closet full of beach gear like boogie boards, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, beach mats, and a cooler.
We even have tennis rackets and balls for you to use at the onsite tennis courts.
8)The Unit Location.
We choose a third floor unit because it offers the best of both worlds. It has more height for better views yet is easy access with just two half flights of stairs (with a landing in between) so fewer steps to carry luggage up and down.
It’s not a top floor where all the heat rises too nor is it a lower floor where privacy can be an issue and it is located where parking is close by too as some of the units have a bit of a walk from the parking lot.
We have been renting vacation rentals for over 20 years and it is our true intention to make your vacation a memorable one by offering a gorgeous unit in a fabulous location with all the amenities you desire.
Stay with us and have a vacation of a lifetime! Experience Heaven on Earth at Pu’u Po’a 313!
