About Gail Locati

We backpacked Kauai 35 years ago on our honeymoon and have visited from time to time. The incredible beauty of the island of Kauai compelled us to eventually want to retire here. Combined with the wonderful church families and friends we've met there, the weather, beautiful beaches, hiking and the locally grown fruits & vegetables @ the farmers markets, we are looking forward to that day.

Gail Locati purchased this condo in 2012

Why Gail Locati chose Princeville

Nihilani is the nicest, newest, and well maintained resort we stayed in. It is on the interior of the resort and is quiet and peaceful. The grounds are lush and our pool area with waterfall feature is the nicest of most resorts on the island. Our grown daughters love the area and will enjoy Nihilani with their families for years to come.

What makes this condo unique

This town home has the plantation style with all the modern amenities you will love while visiting one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Excellent location and beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything we needed and was so comfortable to stay in. I just wish we could have stayed longer! The beds and pillows were very comfortable and it had many beach items for us to use. Home owner has thought of everything to make this a great place to stay.

Great Princeville location with nice amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the condo. The location is great - only ten minutes to Haneli and close to the St. Regis hotel and the Princeville center. We really appreciated having a washer and dryer because we got plenty dirty enjoying the beautiful island. It was also awesome to have access to a top notch beach umbrella, decent snorkel gear, boogie boards, water shoes, cooler, and beach towels. There is plenty of space in the condo- one master bedroom with a large closet and full bathroom. The downstairs has two bedrooms and three beds and 3/4 bath. Our family of four had more than enough space. The lanai off of the kitchen is very small but a nice space to sit in the morning to hear the birds. We did not opt to pay extra for the air conditioning and never felt that we needed it. The unit has very good ceiling fans and we kept the windows open (we were there the end of March). We didn’t use the pool but checked it out- very close by and nice with a main swimming area as well as a hot tub. It is hard to decide to use the pool when the Pacific Ocean is right down the road. Overall- very pleased with the place.

March 2018

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this condo the first week of March 2018 with my husband and one other couple. We found the condo to be very clean and as described. Well stocked kitchen. Easy check in, check out procedures. No issues with management or the condo itself. The garage had plenty of room for two cars. The beach supplies were very handy. The shared driveway wasn’t a problem. We never even saw the neighbors.

One thing that I wish I had paid closer attention to was the air conditioning charge. It is in the description, but I missed it until a couple of days prior to arrival. I was able to request it, pay for it, and have it available with no problems upon our arrival. It worked well too. I appreciate being able to arrange it so close to our arrival.

The welcome binder is full of good info including the up to date wifi log in information.

I would recommend this condo to friends and family. I plan on using again for our next trip to Kauai.

Princeville vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very nice rental unit, in a great area. This is probably the best stocked unit ( dishes, utensils, Pots, pans, etc.) I have ever stayed in. All water/ beach toys & chairs also were supplied with the unit and in great shape. We did not require during our stay, but was notified a couple of days prior to arrival that if we wanted the Air conditioning there was a $20 per day charge. I realize that electricity is expensive on the island, however $20 per day seems extreme and should definitely be posted prior to renting. Overall great unit and would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Aloha Arnold, thank you for the great review, we strive to accommodate our guests with a clean and well supplied home so they have everything they would need to make their stay comfortable. On our website we mention that we have air conditioning and the "more" dropbox has additional information about the cost of running the central cooling system. We find that during the winter months in Kauai, the ceiling fans in all the rooms coupled with the portable fans, if needed, and trade winds, are sufficient and most guests wouldn't need A/C. This way we keep our rates competitive and affordable with beautiful accommodations on our favorite island. The Aloha Welcome Letter we send to our guests also has the air conditioning mentioned so guests can decide whether or not they want it. Our air conditioning central system does cost a lot to run and requires maintenance every now and again just to maintain it. Thank you again for your wonderful review. Mahalo, Gail Locati

From Property to Owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the good fortune to pick this property to stay at for our retirement vacation. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the property and how well supplied that it was. From the beach supply to the well stocked kitchen, where we could not find one item that was not supplied for our needs. We did have one issue where we had to contact the owner or the property manager and they contacted us immediately and acted quickly to correct our concerns. I would and will recommend this property to all that is considering going to Kauai. We simply enjoyed our stay beyond our expectations.
