From a recent guest: "Best organized and best stocked rental house ever."
A Luxury Vacation Rental with all the comforts of home, in Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii, one of the most beautiful spots in the world. On the Ocean #1 fairway of the Princeville Makai Golf Course. For three couples on vacation, each has the privacy of their own master bedroom, with cable TV, and also the luxury of a large living area, looking out on golf course, mountains, ocean and waterfalls, to share with family or friends. For extended families, the house accommodates up to about ten. Walk to beach. Luxury at a bargain price. Great Value.
Why rent a Princeville Condo for your vacation, when three couples can have a whole house (over 3000 sq ft) in the Princeville Resort, for less than $100/night/couple?
This Princeville Kauai Vacation Rental house is located on the #1 Fairway of the Ocean Nine, Makai Course, in Princeville Kauai, about eight hundred yards from the nearest beach, and walking distance to three great restaurants.

Guests say: "It's a beautiful thing when a place lives up to its billing" (The Nickels, Denver, Colorado). We have been told many times by our guests that it feels like home, not like a vacation rental, and that has been our goal.
From GOLF MAGAZINE's Gold Medal Resorts 2004-05:
Definition of Shangri-la (n.)
1. A distant and secluded hideaway, usually of great beauty and peacefulness.
2. Princeville. Framed by sheer mountains that plunge into azure water, Princeville enjoys Kauai's most divine setting............................. as if the tranquil Hanalei Bay were in your own backyard. Robert Trent Jones's Prince course is a wild child, stretching 7,309 yards and often slashing its way through deep thicket. The Makai ("towards the sea") presents three nines -- the Ocean, Lakes and Woods -- that are more player-friendly. Playing early improves your chances of nabbing a patio table at the Living Room, where the sushi is always fresh and the sunsets are never less than dazzling.
You Said It: It has everything -- ocean, mountains, waterfalls.... The most opulent resort I've experienced.... The lounge at sunset might be the most beautiful place in the world.
