We all have goals—some big, some small—and it’s always nice to have someone on your side helping you reach the goals you set. Maybe you just want to make it to the end of the week without telling your boss how you really feel, or maybe you’re saving every penny to go back to college and get the degree you have always dreamed about. Or maybe, just maybe, you’re thinking that now is the time to start purchasing investment homes to ensure your retirement is successful and profitable. If the latter is the case, and you have made the first step of purchasing a Kauai investment property for rental purposes, why not consider letting our Kauai property management team help you reach your retirement goals?
We Do the Hard Stuff
To be honest, our vacation rental managers can help you even before you make the big investment leap; we have the training, skills, and knowledge to help determine if that property you are considering will be a good one for rental purposes. Details such as location, size, and even the number of bathrooms all come into play, and while you can still do well with a smaller unit, if it’s not located in the right area, you may be doomed to failure. Once the purchase has been made, however, the hard work begins, and we can be there every step of the way, monitoring and supervising to ensure your property offers the maximum return on your investment.
Knowing that your property must be clean and safe is a no brainer, but did you know that style matters, too? If your property offers a clash of patterns and furnishings that could have come from a 70s horror movie, this will show up plainly on site pics and potential renters will keep scrolling. We offer design services that will make your place shine like a model home and photograph so well, having an empty bed will never be an issue. And speaking of vacation rental sites, we know them all and we know how to place yours on the ones that are most relevant; more views mean more bookings, and your property will pay for itself in no time, leading you to a successful and profitable retirement. And finally, because we take care of the upkeep, maintenance, and those ever present 2AM emergency calls, you can concentrate on your day job and never feel the need to give up out of frustration!
Choose Princeville Vacation Rentals for Your Kauai Property Management Needs
That first step is a doozy and it’s always nice to have people on your side who don’t just support you, but care about your financial success. Give us a call today and let’s sit down and talk about what we can do for you!
One of the things that people may not realize when looking at a google map of Princeville vacation rentals is that Princeville is 100 feet above the ocean. So your Princeville rental house with a pool may be in the heart of the north shore but ultimately might not have its own beach. The amazing thing about staying up on the bluff is the perspective you get overlooking the rolling waves and reefs below. It’s magic!
There are a few cool Princeville beaches. You can walk to St. Regis beach which is public, just don’t expect to be able to use their chairs or pool. Many travelers go down to the St. Regis for the day and buy drinks and food from the beachside bar and hang out on the white sand just out front. In Hawaii there are no private beaches so if you want to hang out there you are absolutely welcome. Here’s a pro tip: when passing the entrance guard shack to the St. Regis look left. There’s a path and stairs that run around the back side of the hotel and down to the beach.
There’s also Sealodge beach. This is probably one of the coolest beaches on the island and absolutely my favorite spot to “get away from it all”. You can find detailed information as to how to get to this spot via our page on Sealodge which is located just below the popular ocean view Princeville rental condos appropriately named… Sea Lodge :). Here’s the page.
SEA LODGE BEACH
Then there’s Anini. Miles and miles of white sand dotted with beachfront vacation rentals and other villas. It’s gentle, shallow waters make for one of the best beaches in the world if you as(k) us. It’s been dubbed the mini ‘Great Barrier Reef’ thanks to the putter reef that takes the brunt of the wave action and allows the inside waters to be swimmable and pretty safe for families year round. It’s a must see while on Kauai and even walkable from your Princeville rental condo or home if you walk down the back path from the Westin. To find the path drive down Wylie road until you get to the end of the road and instead of bearing left to enter the Westin property, head right by the tall poplar trees and down the super steep grade. It’s a bit of a hike on the way back up but it’s well worth it. When you get down to the beach hang a right and walk all the way down to the boat ramp and the pavilions. Keep your eyes peeled for shells on Anini. It’s one of the places you can find Hawaiian shells and other treasures.
Here are some of the luxury rentals we have on Anini 🙂
If this doesn’t sound like enough like your dream vacation and you HAVE to have some sand without a walk… Searching for Hanalei vacation rentals will likely be best. Luckily we have those here on the Princeville Vacation Rentals website so fear not seeker of the aloha :). We have your back!
As always please just pick up the phone if you need anything or have questions. Our reservation staff is eager to help you find the perfect Princeville rental.

Today on the very first day of 2017 I felt rock fever for the very first time.
It took almost three years. But for me, a thirty something male who’s called Kauai home for the last three years, I’m experiencing it in reverse. I’m missing my Hawaiian home only 72 hours after I left.
My holiday gift(s) to my Mom came in the form of a jaunt to see some Football on the ‘mainland’. It started with a red-eye to SFO then connecting to Atlanta where we saw my Alma-mater Washington play the Alabama juggernaut that looked more like an NFL team than a college team, but that’s another story all together.
After landing in Atlanta it took only minutes in the chilly January evening air to yearn for the sand between my toes and the warm trade winds. I guess sometimes it’s good for those of us who are extremely lucky to live in Hawaii to experience the struggles of what a real winter feels like.
If you are reading this you may have been to Hawaii in the winter for the holiday season, you can attest to the fact that even on the worst days it’s still wonderful and comfortable beyond anything the frigid mainland can offer. If you haven’t been to Hawaii for the winter months, do yourself a favor and give it a shot. It’s the best weather on the planet and will surely recharge your vitamin D batteries enough to avoid any seasonal depression that you may be experiencing during the cold, dark and short winter days.
It’s funny, even though the trip was action packed full of traveling and Uber rides plus high adrenaline sports I’ve constantly wondered about what I’ve missed on the garden island in just the few days I’ve been away. What are the waves like? Any of our vacation rental guests interested in going out for a canoe ride? What are the Albatross up to? Meanwhile my wife is sending my picture upon picture of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets just to rub it in a little too ;). Go figure. Here I am on a vacation but yearning to get back to Kauai to live my normal life.
After 24 hours in Atlanta I started missing the ocean. The sounds of the birds and waves are replaced with sirens, screeching tires and sadly the occasional yelp from someone calling into the night in distress. It made my heart melt to hear all these sounds that I haven’t experienced in nearly a year. I’d been fortunate enough to travel a few times in the last 12 months but we always got away from one peaceful spot to another (Moab, Grand Canyon, etc). I try to plan a trip away every few months to avoid getting the normal rock fever but this time I got shocked with the dreaded 180. The island was calling me back and it felt super good to hear and feel her call.
After Atlanta, aka Hotlanta (not hot at all this trip) we headed back to San Francisco to catch another football game, this time it was the NFL and our Seahawks were going up against the local 49ers.
So far we were 0-1 because Alabama’s Crimson Tide “rolled” on the UW Huskies so we were eager to see a victory. Mom is a massive Seahawks fan. Not sure how that came about because I don’t remember her being excited about football when I was a kid but maybe that was because our team didn’t have much excitement surrounding it. For about the last ten years the hawks have been a solid team so I think Mom jumped on the bandwagon. Mom and I don’t have too many other things in common, and seeing as football is one thing we both enjoy I go with it and try to watch games with her and take her to a couple each year. Our most memorable game was super bowl 49 between the Patriots and the Hawks. We lost on the final play but it was a memory I’ll never forget. Ya see, I get stoked when riding swells on my one-man outrigger and Mom’s fire never rages hotter that in the heat of a last-minute scoring drive in the 4th quarter. Enough about football! Hawks won and during the walk out of Levi’s stadium as we were herded through the tunnels and over the bridges to break free of the masses I felt like I caged animal. The howls of drunken fans and smell of cigarettes needed to be replaced again with the crashing of the waves and the smell of sweet plumeria.
Thankfully today, I get to travel back to the garden island, see my beautiful wife, continue working on my business, surfing and canoeing skills and live the splendid island life.
It didn’t start this way but this has turned into a bit of a love letter to Hawaii. A letter thanking the islands for embracing me and letting me in to see and feel their beauty, to meet the people and get to know them just a little bit. No question these have been the best three years of my life. In just over a thousand days Hawaii has completely changed my outlook on life and I’m thankful for the reverse rock fever. If you have questions about rock fever or anything Kauai feel free to email or call. My cell and email is below.
One of our favorite places to book for people is Alii Kai in Princeville. It’s affordable and the views are absolutely stunning. Check out this sunset video we shot just a couple weeks back! These vacation condos in kaua’i aren’t brand new (built in the 70’s) but they are getting updated and remodeled rapidly due to the quiet bluff front location. Located on the edge of the Pacific it’s a perfect spot to vacation on Kauai. Lots of parking, solid amounts of living space and mellow atmosphere make it one of the North Shore’s top rated rentals. Hanalei bay, Anini beach, St. Regis, Hanalei Bay Resort and tons of other shopping and dining is nearby.
We have several Kaua’i rental condos available to be booked at Alii Kai I and soon hope to have Alii Kai II available for booking as well. Here is the building layout of Alii Kai I.
The buildings on the bluff are 3,4,5,6,7. In the video above 3 is the first one on the end (left side) and then 4,5,6,7 are behind it in succession. All of these Kaua’i rental condos have great views for watching the whales and the big surf in the winter. All Alii Kai condos are 2 bedroom 2 bathroom save a few. There are a couple of owners who are knocking out the guest bedroom to enlarge the living space.
If you have questions you can call or just book online 24/7. Here’s the Alii Kai Page to check availability and book instantly.
