The kitchen also has a microwave/convection oven combination, small refrigerator, toaster, blender, croc pot, coffee pot and more.

Tastefully designed, this upper story, bright and airy, 1 bedroom condo has a balcony where you can wake with the warm morning sunshine and views of the lush Java plum trees lining the pathway to Anini Beach right off your balcony (there is a peek of ocean view as well). This charming condo borders a beautiful golf course and offers privacy from other units. You can also take a dip in the pool which is just out the front door!
Within a 5 minute walk you can access the primary grocery store on the North Shore, multiple cafés, restaurants, shops, post office, yoga studios, golf courses, banks and ATM’s as well as the local bus line. If you go the other direction, a short 5- 10 min walk down the path in front of the condo will lead you to Anini Beach, with excellent snorkeling and swimming.
Beautiful Hanalei Bay is only 5 min. away by car. A great place to walk, swim, boogie board or enjoy surfing from beginner to advanced abilities.
Paniolo Condominium Complex:
The Paniolo Condominium complex is located in Princeville, a quiet resort community that is home to the Makai and famed Prince golf courses. Princeville is located on a bluff overlooking Hanalei Bay and offers spectacular views of Hanalei Bay and of the famous “Bali Hai” ridge that earned its fame from the movie South Pacific.
Princeville’s roads have many unpleasant speed bumps, yet Paniolo is the ONLY complex perfectly situated to avoid these! Paniolo is also only a 5-10 minute walk from Princeville center where any shopping, eating or business can be accomplished.
The condo is located perfectly for anyone who would prefer not to have to drive, with plenty to see and do on foot.
Just A Few Minutes Away:
Start your morning with a 5-minute walk down the Anini Beach Path (or down Wyllie Rd) to the Westin where you can start your morning with a cup of freshly brewed cup of Starbucks coffee. The Princeville center also has great options for breakfast, coffee and smoothies.
The Magical North Shore:
The North Shore of Kaua'i is ideal for spectacular adventure and tropical escape. Kaua'i's dramatic landscape has been carved for centuries by water and the island's stunning scenery and misty cliffs are punctuated by cascading waterfalls with countless breathtaking vistas. The adventures available to you on this Garden Isle are endless; trek the Kalalau trail and be humbled by the deep ancient valleys, wash your cares away under a waterfall, take a surf lesson in beautiful Hanalei Bay, explore a river on a kayak or take a bird's eye tour of the island by helicopter. Get a thrill while checking out the sights from a zip line, ride a horse in the backcountry, or deepen your cultural appreciation while witnessing the preservation efforts of the awe inspiring, Limahuli Garden. The list goes on an on, with opportunities to visit sacred Hawaiian ruins, walk along endless white sandy beaches, take a boat down the unforgettable Na Pali coast, body surf in playful waves, snorkel with sea turtles or test your balance on a stand-up paddleboard. Find your own dream adventure, relax and take in the wonder of this magical island!

Interaction with Guests
We love sharing the love of our island with our guests and totally dig offering our local advice, recommendations and any helpful tips our guests can think of. We feel that vacation time and money is too valuable to waste, so we make a deliberate effort to make ourselves available for questions and make sure to give genuine answers. That being said, we don't like to pester our guests and value their privacy too, so we make our assistance known and easily available, but wait for our guests to request any information they are interested in first, before talking their ear off... ;-)
Princeville is an amazingly convenient and beautiful community on the North Shore. We absolutely love it and here's why:
From our location it is easy to walk to the beach or the grocery store and the views in either direction are spectacular, with ocean one direction and mountains and waterfalls the other! In fact there is a network of fantastic walking and running trails all over Princeville, making it likely the safest and easiest of locations of the island to walk or take a run. Another bonus is that all the golf courses are open for pedestrian exploration after 5pm, which is beyond excellent for sunset strolls.
The coastline below Princeville provides some of the most pristine, clear water due to the lack of rivers and fresh water runoff. Because of these Princeville has some amazing exploring to enjoy below its bluffs (surf conditions permitting!!). The clear water provides some of the very best turtle viewing, snorkeling, pristine coves and nooks and cranny gems on the island. Some of these places are hard to find, so ask us and we will be happy to guide you along with the customized map we provide in the condo. We've fallen in love with Princeville and know you will too!
In general we recommend renting a vehicle while on Kauai as it provides most visitors with the island access and freedom they prefer. However, for those who enjoy to walk and for anyone who would prefer not to drive there is plenty to see and do on foot from the Bamboo Bungalow. There is also the option of public transit with a bus stop only 5-10 minutes walk from the condo. Unfortunately though, Kauai is still a bit behind the times with its public transportation and the bus does not cover the entire island. The furthest the bus goes on the North Shore is to Hanalei town, so if folks want to make it as far as the Na Pali cost trail, Ke'e Beach or any sights West of Hanalei without a car, this makes it challenging. Many people do "hitch hike", but this is not entirely recommended and is marginally successful.

The condo was exactly as described "perfect studio condo". Location was absolutely perfect. Lani and Sky were so helpful - especially when we accidentally locked ourselves outside!!
Thank you for a great stay! We will be back for sure!
We really enjoyed staying at Lani and Sky's condo in Princeville! It's super close to a market, coffee shop etc. and the perfect location to get to all of the amazing north shore beaches! The condo area itself is really nice and we had the pleasure of meeting a few neighbors at the pool who were lovely and even offered us some fresh mango and lychee.
The place itself is a great size for 2 people and it was great having our own kitchenette where we could make a few meals at the place vs. going out especially since that can get super expensive.
I really can't say a single thing we didn't enjoy about staying at their condo. They were very nice and checked in after we arrived, but weren't constantly following up (which is nice when you're trying to unplug) though if you needed to reach them they were quick to respond.
All in all it was great and they had awesome recommendations. One more to add is if you find yourself driving the highway near Kapaa go to Verde!
My husband and I travelled to Kauai early June for a one week stay at Lani & Sky's condo. Our stay was absolutely perfect and the condo was everything we hoped for. It was clean (exactly as shown in photos), well equipped and in a perfect location to explore the North Shore.
Lani & Sky were great hosts from beginning to end, and offered lots of great local recommendations!
My husband and I will definitely travel back to Kauai and we will definitely stay at Lani & Sky's condo again. Our only complaint is that we didn't stay longer! We highly recommend this condo and the island of Kauai to others.
Very nice Condo with Mountain views out front. Well stocked cooking utensils. Comfortable bed. Close to all the North shore has to offer. Thanks Lani and Sky, you are both very accomodating. They helped out when my plans were thrown a curveball!!
The condo was spotless, and looks exactly as pictured. The owners have taken great care to make it feel inviting, with lots of small touches that make it just feel friendly and comfortable. While I was mostly there alone, it was large enough for a couple to be comfortable. The owners were very accommodating when my son came for the wedding a day early but could not change the terms of his stay at a nearby timeshare. On short notice, I was able to add him and his girlfriend for one night on the fold-out sofa for a modest fee through Airbnb. The owners many-years knowledge of the island has also made it possible for them to provide abundant expert advice and guidance to their visitors, which was especially useful to my son, who had been to Kauai only once before.
Lani and Sky were very accommodating. They sent us several emails during our trip as helpful reminders and to make sure we had everything we needed. The condo was fantastic and equipped with beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, beach bag and towels, you name it! The location was perfect since it was a 10min drive to tunnels, ke'e, and hanelei beaches. There was a nice running/walking path too.
The birds are incredibly loud and chirpy in the morning which is great for early morning risers but if you're not one of them, feel free to bring earplugs.
Perfect for our needs. Great trail from the condo to Anini beach! Would stay there again! Lani is quick to respond to any of our needs/questions.

About the Host, Lani & Sky
Hi! We are Lani and Sky and we graciously welcome you to our condos!
Lani has lived on Kauai for much of her life, and was born and raised near Tunnels Beach on the North Shore. Life adventures beyond the islands however, eventually brought her to the mainland and abroad. She spent her high school days in Santa Cruz California before turning interests towards colder climates and getting into skiing. Between travels abroad, Lani worked primarily in outdoor industries for the better part of a decade, mostly kayaking and skiing and living in amazing rural towns. One of her favorite of those towns was Jackson Hole Wyoming, where she lived for several years before moving back to Kauai.
Coincidentally, Sky was born and raised in Jackson Wyoming where he became an avid snowboarder in the winter, fly fisherman in the summer and world traveller whenever possible in between. Despite his mountain upbringing, Sky has always been a and a waterman and was inevitably called to a warmer climate.
Eventually island life, with its enticing warm water and fragrant trade winds beckoned both of us individually to the Garden Island of Kauai where we met in 2011. We've found a happy match as we are both very active and love to explore and laugh. We've found our perfect paradise here on Kauai and wouldn't want to live anywhere else!
As a team we really enjoy sharing what we love about Kauai with our guests and offer our local knowledge and recommendations in addition to providing exceptional quality accommodation. We want to ensure that our guests have as much fun and as little worries as possible on their visits to Kauai.
