"One of the best things about this villa is the mountain and sea view from the balcony. We really enjoyed eating breakfast out there every morning, and star gazing at night. At the end of the a row of condos, mostly surrounded by lush greenery, this standalone two-level condo is clean and spacious, with a well-equipped and recently renovated kitchen. It is well located, right across the street from on of the top sunset viewing areas overlooking the ocean. Note that the condo complex is not located on the beach, but rather is close to a spot overlooking the water from high above. The closest beach access within walking distance (about 15 minutes) is Hideaways, near the St. Regis hotel (accessed by a steep, rocky, muddy path, just like many beaches in Kauai). There are so many beaches to explore on the island and you'll need to go by car to most. All in all, I highly recommend this villa if you're looking to stay in Princeville - it was just my husband and me, but it could easily accommodate two couples or a small family."
