5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Lovely House for a Family Reunion
Eight family members stayed at the house for an 80th birthday celebration. The common areas of the house were outstanding - plenty of room for everyone, fabulous table for outdoor dinners, comfortable deck furniture, lovely breeze through the house, nice kitchen, individual AC units in each bedroom, lots of toys in the garage, double washer and dryer. What did not meet our expectations were that there were no chests of drawers in three of the four bedrooms!! That was a shock - where do we put our clothes, other than hanging things in the closet? The nightstand drawers were tiny - suitable for books and chargers, not clothes. And two bathrooms had only pedestal sinks - no shelving to place anything on! A couple of phone calls to the property management firm got instant results - they went out and bought some inexpensive storage units to place in two of the bedrooms and one bathroom. Given that these are weekly rentals, we were surprised that this hadn't been addressed before. The only other surprise was the old drip coffee maker! Given the upscale property and what is typical today, a Keurig and an espresso maker would have been more appropriate. Thank goodness there was also a french press! Some better bake-ware such as a cookie sheet would have also been nice to have, but we made due with what was available. Other than these few issues, the property was everything it was advertised to be and the management company was great.

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Surf Song Stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Surf Song in Princeville. Simon has a wonderful property with stunning views and has it fully equipped for all needs. The property manager was very responsive and went out of her way to make us feel at home. Our 5 kids (ages 6-10) and 6 adults (30’s-60’s) were very comfortable throughout our stay and all agreed we would highly recommend this property to our friends!

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Magnificent Home
There were 11 of us in our party and we had plenty of room. The toys in the garage were a huge plus and cost savings. Simon has thought of most everything and was very helpful. We would all love to come back again.

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Better than advertised. Simply amazing property.
Not sure I can say anything that hasn't already been shared. The views are absolutely stunning, whether you just want to watch the ocean waves or dozens of whales playing out in the distance. Just a short 5-10 minute drive to some really fun restaurants and shopping in Hanalei. The garage is stocked with all the sporting equipment you would ever need and the interior decor is top notch. And we didn't expect to use the hot tub but came in very handy as temperatures typically dropped in the evenings and was great place to still take in the evening ocean sounds. Only downside (if I had to pick one) is the north shore location can be tough in the winter as most of the ocean excursions leave from the south and the warmer beach weather is there as well. Still a relatively easy drive when needed so if amazing views and relaxation are your priority then definitely stay on north side of island and in this property. Definitely coming back here someday soon.

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Outstanding!
We had the greatest experience staying at the Surf Song. It met, and exceeded our expectations. The living space was open and perfect for our family of 8 plus a baby, and the amenities were first class and plentiful. There is nothing that beats the soothing sounds of the ocean which virtually surrounds this property.

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Search no further!
I found your quintessential Kauai experience for you- an incredible, state of the art, beautifully decorated home with breathtaking views at Surf Song! Our family of 10 slept very comfortably here for a whole wonderful week to celebrate my parent’s anniversary and we could not have found a better place to do so- the house is perfect (the views are exceptional (we could see whales breaching almost daily from the deck!), the location was great being about 10 min to Hanalei and 5 min to St Regis.

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Surf Song
We truly enjoyed our stay at Surf Song and everything it had to offer! It was one of the best VRBO’s we have stayed at. Having 2 sets of washer/dryers (for a family of 7) was perfect! It was nice to wash all the towels, as needed, ….. especially since we encountered a few days of “liquid sunshine” that made everything very damp and hard to dry naturally! The house was very clean and really just stunning. Kitchen was well equipped .. even when I contacted the management, to give them a heads up that the toaster was seeing better days ...the next day we had a new toaster waiting at the door for us! I just thought he would have one for the next round of guest! I was pleasantly surprised! Communication was so easy and they really made you feel very welcome. We enjoyed using the ping-pong table, bikes and snorkel gear. Due to the weather the trip down to the little cove (below the house) was a bit tricky. However, despite the weather we made the best of our stay and having a place to call “home” made it even more tolerable. Oh! I didn't mention .... our first 3 mornings we were greeted with a couple of humpback whales. Such a beautiful sight! This home sits on a quiet cul-de-sac which just added to the beauty of this home. It was just so nice to stay at Surf Song with our family and seeing our 47th state together. You can't go wrong staying here! Thank you for opening your home to us. And who knows ..... maybe one day we'll be back! Mahalo and God Bless

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Beautiful property in a quiet neighborhood!
We loved Surf Song! It is a beautiful home with all the amenities you could imagine. It was so relaxing and had a breathtaking view of the ocean. We had gone on a whale watch out of Port Allen Harbor on the west side of the island during our stay, but we saw more whales while sitting on Surf Song's lanai than we did on the whale watch. The management was very responsive to any questions we had. The home was very clean and tidy upon arrival. Well before our arrival we received very detailed information about the home, as well as great information about the island and things to do. At the home was a book explaining everything you need to know about operating things within the home. Although there was quite a bit of rain during our stay, there was an equal amount of sunshine and it was very pleasant on the covered lanai even when it rained. The weather cooled off during the evening hours and we found that we didn't need to use the A/C because the winds off the ocean along with the ceiling fan kept us perfectly cool all night (and I am the first one to get too warm most of the time). I was very impressed with not only the property but the fast responses to us with any questions we had. I would highly recommend Surf Song to anyone!

5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Absolutely Fabulous - Great Location, Great House, Great Views
We enjoyed a wonderful week's stay at Surf Song. Simon could not have been more thorough and helpful, providing plenty of information to make the trip totally seamless. The house itself was well appointed and very comfortable, including plenty of water shoes and beach toys that our almost 2YO took with her everywhere. The stunning view was difficult to pull yourself away from, seen from the kitchen, great room, bedrooms, and even while showering. Some afternoons we simply didn't want to -- or need to -- leave the lanai. We lucked out with great weather and spent plenty of time watching whales splash in the waves just a few hundred yards off shore below. Location wise the house is perfect. There are many walking/biking trails within Princeville, and you can even easily walk to the nearby park (if you have kids) or the Princeville shopping center. Hanalei is just a short drive away, as is Anini Beach and the little Kilauea marketplace + lighthouse. Even the drive to Ke'e beach and Kalalau hiking feels nearby, since you have nearly uninterrupted ocean views the entire way to distract you. I would highly recommend this house. The home feels very private, has plenty of space for privacy among guests as well as plenty of room for all to gather. You will not be disappointed.
