About the property

This beautiful home is situated at Nihilani at the Princeville Resort.

Our lovely Nihilani Home is situated ideally in the center of the complex, far away from the noise of Ka Haku Road and just steps to the swimming pool and barbecues. And good news, there is now wireless at the pool! This 2,200 SF, 2 story home has recently undergone a renovation, is beautifully decorated, and is deliciously air conditioned providing respite from those humid north shore days.

The moment you walk through the front door you feel at home. The Living room is inviting and comfortable, the kitchen is open with stainless appliances, a spacious Island with counter seating adjacent to the formal dining table, and the bedrooms upstairs are a delightful haven for you and your family.

There are 3 lanai's. The first floor lanai is directly off the living area, a perfect place to enjoy your cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening. The sound of the breeze through the palm trees is so relaxing and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. The other 2 lanais are private, one off the Master bedroom with a beautiful view of the pool, and the 2nd bedroom lanai has a street view and a just a glimpse of the ocean.

Downstairs is the living/dining area, with plenty of room for everyone, comfortable furniture, and a 60" Flat Screen Smart TV. It is the perfect setting to relax after a long day in the sun. The dining table seats 6 with additional seating at the spacious Island in the kitchen. The kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and is fully equipped with everything you would need to create a meal for you and your family. There is direct access to the two car garage and a half bath rounds out the downstairs.

Upstairs, the Master bedroom suite is very large with a king size bed, 48' flat screen Smart TV, and a relaxing window seat nook which can convert to another sleeping area. The ensuite bathroom has double sinks, a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. And of course don't forget that private lanai.

The 2nd bedroom suite consists of a queen size bed, direct access to the shared Jack & Jill bathroom and has it's own private lanai.

The third bedroom comes with a queen bed and shared access to the Jack & Jill Bathroom. All bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable, with spacious closets.

There is a fourth room upstairs, which contains a large twin/full bed with a trundle bed underneath and a 42' flat screen Smart TV.

A 2nd floor laundry room with full size washer and dryer is directly across from the den area.

This home comes complete with extra linens, towels, beach towels, hair dryer, iron & ironing board, in room safe, and of course free wireless high speed internet.

Right outside the front door you will find a beautiful pool with waterfall and 2 Jacuzzis.

Our single car garage is a feature unique to Nihilani and affords easy parking and access to the condo. Ours is stocked with Bicycles, Beach Chairs, and Beach Toys to enjoy durning your stay.

So book your stay and come home to the perfect relaxation destination, and enjoy the Aloha!

About Juli Dodd

We are native San Diegan's and love the Southern California beach lifestyle. We have been coming to Hawaii with our family for decades and when we first came to the North Shore of Kauai, we found our favorite slice of paradise! Being from San Diego, we knew the quality of Brookfield developments and Nihilani is no exception. We chose our homesite before it was built and feel it is the best in the development, away from the road noise and enjoying the best views. We love sharing the North Shore Aloha!

Juli Dodd purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Juli Dodd chose Princeville

If you are looking for a true home away from home, then you've found it. Beautifully furnished, comfortable and equipped with everything you need for a relaxing, inspiring vacation retreat.

What makes this townhome unique

Steps from the pool, Balmy breezes, swaying palms, a mile from the beach, golf and many other amenities. Not to mention, Nihilani is in an award winning location.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place is just wonderful. I didn't want to leave! There's a sense of peacefulness about the place. The bedrooms are comfortable and I was happy to find a washer & dryer upstairs. It's also great to have a garage. I loved the pool, my favorite thing to do was to sit under the waterfall. I call it my happy place. I am already making plans to visit again.

Love this property. Wouldn’t stay anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th time staying in this rental property. It is 100% accurate for the listing description and feels like home the minute you walk through the doors. This property is fully equipped, included laundry detergent, dryer sheets, toilet paper and paper towels, and everytime we’ve stayed here there have been condiments, seasonings and even water bottles in the fridge!

The property is well maintained, has new flooring downstairs and on the stairs, has WiFi and everything you need for the beach (plenty of beach towels, umbrellas, chairs, a cooler, snorkel gear, water shoes, sand toys, etc.).

My family recommends this property to anyone we know who is coming to Kauai. It’s well appointed, very clean and like i said, i truly feel at home.

We come to Kauai frequently so we feel like locals now. We always make a stop for ice cream at Lapperts in the Princeville shopping center, shave ice at the Wishing Well in Hanalei and have a nice meal at The Bistro in Kilauea. Pats Taqueria is a yummy food truck at the Hanalei Pier which is nice for lunch so you don’t have to leave the beach. Other than that we visit the many beaches in the Princeville and Hanalei areas and hopefully make it down to kee beach for some snorkeling. My son loves the hike down to queens bath and you can always see plenty of turtles along this coastline hike.

We love this property and wouldn’t stay anywhere else. Coming home after a day at the beach and playing in the pool for an hour or so before making dinner is the icing on the cake when you rent this property.

We can’t recommend it enough!!

Paradise in Princeville

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 week vacation here was great. The townhome was clean, spacious and well-stocked with everything you need. Booking was easy and the owner provided us with a complete information package and was very accommodating to our needs. We had no problems during our stay but contact information is provided if any problems arise. The complex grounds were well maintained and there was a nice pool and BBQ area. The Princeville area and the island itself is great with lots of nice beaches and site-seeing. Our favorite attractions were the Walmea Canyon and the Hanalei and Anini beaches (both good for young kids). I have already recommended this property to some friends and we hope to be back again soon.

This condo was incredible!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a vacation at this condo. It was gorgeous, clean and had everything we needed. We were a group of two families, both with 2 small children. The condo came equip with tons of space, everything we needed and more for the beach (coolers, chairs, umbrella, even pool toys) and we enjoyed every bit of our stay. We did tons of laundry and it was nice that small things like dish soap, toilet paper and laundry soap was provided. I would recommend this condo to anyone wanting to stay in Princeville.

5 Star Resort, Not Just a Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd X to the island of Kaua'i. Mahola for renting out your condo. We were 8 adults 18 to 48. The condo was plenty spacious for all of us. My husband and I enjoyed the master suite w tv and huge we retired earlier for the evening from the young folk. I appreciated the tub. There are 3 tv's to this unit. The condo was very clean. Loved the simple beachy theme and wall prints. Tons of towels. Extra bed sheets & blankets. Washing machine and dryer came in good use. Kitchen well supplied. Although there was no tea pot or electric frying pan (my personal preferences) but we made do. My husband and I did find the king mattress probably needed to be flipped as we found it was unevenly softer up top than by the feet. Otherwise everything else was just lovely.

The condo is perfectly situated between Anini and Hanalei beaches and close to Hanea beach. Close to mini golf in Kilauea...a nice way to spend an evening. Hiked Na Pali as well as Queens Bath 'mud walk', in eventually bare feet was a true hawaiian experience...glad we did it!

Princeville food store has everything you need. We did shop safeway and walmart first but prices I found were not that much higher. Sign up with your phone number and get the discounts. We did use the squeeze bottle condiments left in fridge such as the salad dressings, ketchup, mustard etc. And we left some of our own such as honey and a full sugar.

We love the north shore and appreciated using the beach equipment umbrella, 4 chairs, boogie boards (we found a lost board so now there are 4), coolers for food, extra beach towels and snorkles (although we brought our own). The unit is situated in the middle of the complex which was nice so no traffic noise. Close to pool area which again was lovely and we utilized. 2 cars fit well in garage. I felt we were staying at a 5 star resort. This unit was a big part of the success of our holiday. I would highly recommend this condo, so worth it!!! I would even come back here and stay again. What a wonderful experience. Many MAHOLA 🌺?

Very well maintained large Condo

  • 5 of 5

Juli takes a personal interest in keeping her guests happy. Little things like detailed welcome email with all the right pointers. Keeping snorkeling gear, bikes and boogie boards, etc made us feel really good.

Princeville is also an awesome place to stay as there is a lot of action close by.
