Deluxe Bluff Ocean View Kauai (North Shore) Home Full of ALOHA for up to 10 - A/C!
3800 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Tammy
10 Guests . 5 Bedrooms . 4.5 Bathrooms


NEWS FLASH - Effective 8/1/20 - Hawaii is again welcoming visitors who show proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

At 3800 square feet, The Dolphin Hale blends traditional and contemporary island design to provide the ocean views, amenities and elbow room you crave to make your Kauai stay a real vacation.

This tri-level bluff home possesses wonderful ocean views and an open floor plan with an ocean-inspired color palette. The Dolphin Hale features 5 actual bedrooms (with closets, dressers, and legal egress), 4.5 updated baths, two living spaces, a dining area with table for 10 (padded chairs), LARGE gourmet Chef's Kitchen, spa and 5-burner outdoor grill. Among the creature comforts, The Dolphin Hale touts A/C in the greater living areas, Smart Flat Screen TVs, USB ports, and Comfort Height toilets.* Moreover, The Dolphin Hale sleeps up to 10 in real beds--no futons or sofa-sleepers here! The heart of this home is the spacious Chef's Kitchen (Viking 6-Burner Gas Stove-top) and Island (seats 6) serving as a great place for casual breakfasts or Happy Hour!

Located in the master-planned community of Princeville, guests of The Dolphin Hale also will appreciate its proximity to the Princeville shopping center, golf courses and the Princeville Resort Kauai (formerly the St Regis Hotel)--all within walking distance of the house. In addition, there is a jungle path to the private Kaweonui Beach aka Sealodge Beach that can be hiked, but caution is advised when wet. Further, the world famous Hanalei Beach Park is just minutes away by car and is well worth a visit.

Upon returning to The Dolphin Hale after your day trip to any one of the numerous island attractions, relax in the 115-jet spa off the lower lanai, or have drinks and barbecue on the upper lanai--both overlooking the ocean. The sound of the surf breaking below also can be heard from the guest rooms, so open the windows and enjoy the cool Trade Winds as well as the amenities of The Dolphin Hale on your next visit to the North Shore of Kauai.

Please be advised that The Dolphin Hale sits between two homes occupied by full-time residents. As a good neighbor policy, bachelor or bachelorette parties, weddings, or other such events are prohibited.


* We strive to ensure that The Dolphin Hale functions as it should upon your arrival. We, however, cannot guarantee that the A/C, spa, televisions, appliances, high speed internet, window shades, etc. will not malfunction or break down before or during your stay and therefore, no refunds or adjustments will be made for any mechanical failure.
