My large family truly enjoyed the house. Convenient location, plenty of room, plenty of beach towels! Two dining tables really helped us out! Lovely yard - saw a impressive number of bird species from the deck. Planning on returning!
Thanks Geoff for writing a review. This house is owned by the Los Angeles-based non-profit Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law. We sometimes rent it out and often donate it to other non-profits to auction a one-week visit at their annual fundraising events. We do not make a profit by renting out the house but given our expenses, we try to break even each year. We're glad you and your party enjoyed the house and its view of the ocean, and thank you for taking the time to post a review.
The home is in a beautiful area with a great view . It had 6 bedrooms which was nice as it easily housed the 8 of us.However several of the advertised items were not working including the microwave, the hot tub, and the 3 TV's. The house not look very clean upon arrival and it looked neglected with tile coming off the showers.
prime location, house in need of TLC
First, the owner and care-taking staff were responsive to our calls for help. The pictures of the house and the state at which we found the premises were dramatically different. Upon arrival, first impressions and walk through had our group in a uproar. The air was stagnant and everything about the house was moldy. We came to understand that the house had been closed up for three weeks but what we found was longterm neglect. We turned on the few installed air-conditioners and installed another portable unit upstairs to cool down the rooms. The next morning when help arrived, we were advised to open up the whole house to allow the breeze to air out the house and clear the smell of mold.
The house, once in its prime, is worn down with dire need of a new couch cover and soft fabrics washed and repurposed. The hallway stairs are deeply stained. The outside structure is weather-worn and deteriorated to the extent that the window frames are dry-rot. The immediate repair had to be done on one of the bedroom sliding glass doors, which separated from its frame when first opened. The upstairs main bath was torn up and unusable with fixtures that were beat up, likely by previous renters. The owner informed us the day before we arrived.
In spite of the obvious overt neglect, the house itself is stunning and furnishings well appointed. The kitchen is well stocked for large groups with proper pots, serving bowls and soft good supplies. The ocean view, ample living room and outside patio spaces were perfect for our group to gather. In general our collective decision to make the best of a less than optimal circumstance helped us to look past the misgivings of the house and focus on why were there.
I understand the owner is working to bring the house up to standard, but given that the house did not have the feeling of being taken care of, I would not consider a return visit.
Excellent service and great home for a large group!
Loved every minute of our time on Kauai. The weather was outstanding until the Sunday we left. Great accommodations in Princeville. Peter Schey and his staff were great to work with. He even spent time with me on the phone giving me information about the island. He was flexible when we needed to change a date. When we got to Princeville, Robert was at the home when we arrived. He was amazing! Very friendly and accommodating. When we had a question about the house he was very accessible. The home is a little older, but has been taken care of. You can’t beat the view. Ocean and beach just below the home with huge windows that allow you to see everything. My family of 10 were comfortable all week. The location was great, but it was quite a drive to the south and west side of the island. However, the drive allows you to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. We loved our stay and will come back again.
Excellent Accomodation, Great Views, A Little TLC Needed
We were 6 adults and three children. Dinners all prepared at home. Kitchen has way more than what's needed, including sharp knives, pots and pans, dinnerware, plates - although for purists, sets often did not match, but no problem at all. Beds were comfortable, bedrooms spacious, excellent water pressure in showers and plenty of hot water. Living rooms and dining areas were just magnificent, as were the views, with comfortable furniture. We did not use the large-screen TV at all, as beaches were just moments away, with great shopping opportunities. We did not try the local Foodland store, as we stocked up in Costco and Safeway on our way to Princeville. Even if you buy three times what you need, Costco is less expensive for most items except for local produce in local groceries.
My wife and I stayed in the downstairs apartment. We had a large outdoor deck with a large hot tub and superb views. Kitchen equipment was Ok for our needs, mainly coffee, as we cooked and ate in the main house, but also had a fridge and microwave. The living room also has a large deck with great views of the ocean. The garage has a good-size washer and dryer as well as beach equipment, all of which worked.
The recent storm caused some damage, but there are also some elecctric outlets that did not work in the downstairs apartment, and some of the post storm renovations, such as outdoor painting, is sloppy.
3 vehicles can easily park in the driveway, and there is a nice large back yard area. Wifi is very high speed.
We stayed for 6 nights, and everyone loved the house. Highly recommended.
BEAUTIFUL SETTING...PROBLEMATIC ACCOMMODATIONS
This is a spacious home with a very interesting layout and magnificent views from floor to ceiling windows of the ocean and mountains. The home has enormous potential but suffers from longtime neglect. While we understand efforts are currently being made for restoration, many, many problems continue.
A quite substantial cleaning fee is charged by the owner. Upon our arrival we found it necessary to do our own cleaning. The downstairs bathroom by the office was disgusting with dirt and grime in the tub. There was dirt on the floor with dead insects. We found an insulin needle under the kitchen counter. Debris was scattered everywhere in the driveway. A burnt out bulb here and there in such a large house is understandable. There were multiple outlets literally with exposed wire. Some rooms (north rooms and downstairs suite) completely lacked power.
During our stay we experienced an unprecedented winter storm with winds of 40 knots. Attempting to close louvered window slats we found them to be inoperable necessitating stuffing towels and bathmats to prevent a gale blowing through the house. Any time it rained it flooded near the kitchen. The hot tub was quite dirty, cloudy and cold upon our arrival. There was no ping pong table and snorkel gear was a joke (broken straps and tiny gear only). Communication was very difficult with the owner and it was only after direct contact with VRBO that we did finally receive information on how to enter the property (received while enroute!)
While the owner did refund a portion of the rental, we felt it necessary to write this less than encouraging review. We would return, simply because of the beauty of the setting..but let the prospective guest beware.
