High on a cliff in Princeville, a prime neighborhood in the heart of Kauai’s North Shore, Hale On'tariō is perfectly situated for an active, outdoor vacation or a laid-back retreat. This home is located on the sixth hole of the Makai Golf Course and enjoys stunning, panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Bali Hai Mountains. Hale On'tario has been recently refreshed with new carpet, while the air conditioning system has been updated (August 2019) to include splits in all the bedrooms and an extra one in the living room.
Hale On'tario is a relaxed choice for couples, families, or friends who want to unwind in an ocean view home and enjoy Kauai’s many charms and adventures. You can gather in the great room with floor to ceiling windows and enjoy a 60-inch flatscreen 4K TV with cable, Apple TV, and a wide assortment of movies, games, and books. The house supports portable music by cable or with Bluetooth speakers.
There are two master bedrooms on the main floor and a loft bedroom – each with a private bathroom and air conditioning. The loft has another flatscreen TV, an Xbox One gaming system with family-friendly games, two full-size beds, and a trundle bed with two single mattresses. There is a separate office in the loft with a Windows 7 PC, free WiFi, and a laser printer that can scan and copy documents. Window coverings and powerful ceiling fans help keep things cool and private.
There is a well-equipped galley kitchen designed for easy meal preparation. The dining table seats eight and a large Weber propane gas grill is available. You can dine al-fresco on the screened-in porch that features a colorful garden view, and catch the sunset or enjoy the beautiful indigo moods of the ocean over morning coffee on the lanai.
Located where albatross birds nest from November to July, and within walking distance of the surf breaks at Hideaways Beach, the lively nightlife at the Hanalei Bay Resort, the brand new shuttle (2019) to the Napali Coast, and Princeville’s popular multi-use trail, Hale On'tariō is an exceptionally convenient vacation home. Anini Beach, Hanalei, and the Kilauea Lighthouse are minutes away by car. World-class snorkeling and hiking are within easy reach.
Kauai is paradise and we want you to live here in comfort and make unforgettable memories.

Very nice and clean home with plenty of space for our family of 5. Convenient location in Princeville. Views from the living room are amazing with beautiful sunsets. Overall we had a really great time here.
FYI — New home construction directly next door started the week we were there, which unfortunately includes a high green construction fence adjacent to the lanai and somewhat disrupts the ocean views. I suspect the construction noise will be a bother during the day. We were gone during the daytime and other than the ugly fence, didn’t have an issue. If you are planning to spend your day relaxing on the lanai, the fence and construction will likely be a bother. Home owners may have additional info in timing of the construction. Even with this construction, we would stay here again.
Hi, Zachary! We are delighted to read you enjoyed your stay with us and sincerely apologize we missed notifying you of the construction. This project will hopefully be done in about 6-8 months. Thank you!

Loved the folder of places to go and eat. So helpful
And probably took a ton of work! We all loved this house so much. Close to Anini beach - perfect for kids and we got to see a sea turtle go from the beach to swimming back into the ocean! We’d stay here again in a heart beat. We were sad to leave.

Our group of three couples had a wonderful week at Hale On’tario, although one couple had to stay in the double bed upstairs in the partially open-walled loft that would be great for kids. The constantly changing views of the sky, mountains, and ocean were beautiful, and rainbows were abundant. Grocery shopping was very convenient in the Princeville market Foodland just 2 miles away, and the kitchen was well equipped and thoughtfully appointed. The house owners had prepared a comprehensive binder of local attractions and activities. We appreciated the beautiful turquoise Le Creuset accent pieces including a teapot! Some of the chairs could use some updating but the location is great, and it’s a nice walk to the beach. The Vacasa staff were highly responsive and helpful to resolve a few small issues, We are happy to recommend this place. Thank you!

Our stay at Hale On’tario was magnificent. Loved the view from the living area. You supplied everything we needed for our stay in Princeville. Hopefully we can return soon.

Great location, lots of room to roam and private entrance. We loved the interior of this home plus all of the beach items to use. We loved our stay and would recommend this rental to all.

My family had an excellent trip! This home is spacious, comfortable and beautiful!! Walking distance to queens bath, hideaways and pizza! The home has everything you need- coffeemaker, grinder, washer, dryer and beach umbrella, beach chairs and boogie boards. The management team was excellent. We had a small issue the first part of our trip and they got back to me in 5 minutes with a response and it was resolved in 2 hours (this was on a Sunday). Excellent customer service!! Thank you for sharing your home for our family vacation!!

Everything was great about this home accept for AC, however I understand that it was unusually hot during our stay. Location on golf course is great with nice views of the ocean and mountains. Owners reference book for things to do on the island was very helpful. Kitchen was well equipped. Bikes and beach umbrellas were available for use. Owners did a nice job of making the stay as nice as possible.
Again, the only drawback and the reason for not providing a four star rating was the AC,
but property managers were quick to provide additional fans to keep it cool.
Hi Tim, Thank you for staying with us, Tim! We are glad you enjoyed the home though we apologize for not being able to fully address the A/C issues you experienced. We are happy to report that the owner has updated the A/C throughout the entire house to ensure guests are comfortable during their stay. We look forward to hosting you again!

Our family spent a week here and we all loved it! The house is well maintained, clean, and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook a meal. The furniture is updated and comfortable, and the entertainment system is great. We spent a week here with four adults and two children and had plenty of space for all. We would definitely stay here again!

We absolutely loved our stay in Hale On’tario such a beautiful,clean well maintained house. The large windows in the living room are so awesome to see the sunset in the evening. The two bedrooms downstairs are very spacious with both having bathrooms and the king beds are very very comfy. The upstairs room is perfect for kids. The kitchen had everything you need to cook a meal. I would definitely come back.

This house really is beautiful, it has an incredible location (you can walk to the incredible overlook of the Na Pali coast, and overlook Queen's bath), the ocean, and the Makai golf course. It is located up the road from Queen's Bath (a formidable trek in itself!) The house has beautiful tile work with travertine tile in family room and kitchen, a great stocked beautiful kitchen for cooking, huge windows, 2 lovely dining rooms, a beautiful patio in the back, a grill in garage to wheel out into the driveway, a gorgeous lot with long driveway recessed from road, lots of thoughtful extras for your beach days, and lovely furniture, great for entertaining. The neighborhood is Princeville quiet and lovely. Three bedrooms are nicely decorated, each with its own beautiful bathroom. There are TVs in all bedrooms, if you want to watch TV. Keep in mind this house was destroyed twice and rebuilt twice (once in hurricane Iwa, the second time in hurricane Iniki), as it is in the path of hurricanes, since it is a stone's throw from the northern cliffs of Princeville with nothing to shelter it from storms or wind. Furniture is just beautiful, and well-arranged for entertaining. There is an issue, though with a heavily soiled stairway carpet and upstairs carpet which was surprising, given the cost of this home. Also, the house does not have central air conditioning, and the room air conditioners worked marginally at best (one downstairs bedroom has no room air conditioner), making this house hot, hot, hot (given the high humidity and almost daily rains on Kauai), and uncomfortable in late afternoons into early evening. Only 1 (downstairs) bedroom was cool at night; the others very hot. We needed any fan we could find to circulate the air towards the floor to make the house somewhat livable temperature-wise for sleeping (the ceiling fans circulated the hot rising air and made it hotter inside, so we shut those off in lower level of house). Aside from those 2 issues, this house was lovely to use as a rental for a vacation. Although the AC issue would be difficult to remedy, (also given the extremely high cost of electricity on Kauai!), I would love to see the carpet in the stairwell and upper level disappear, it would fix one of the 2 issues. Without those 2 issues, this rental would normally be a 5 star rating.
Hi Jeanette, Thank you for your feedback! The owner has taken this to heart and has replaced the carpet. They have also updated the A/C in the home - every room has an updated A/C unit and the primary living area has two to ensure guests are comfortable! We hope you are able to come back soon.

The house was perfect for our family of 6! It had all the amenities for a very comfortable stay. The kitchen was fully stocked with all that was needed to cook our meals there. The house also had everything we needed for a great day at the beach (beach chairs, mats, umbrellas, boogie boards, beach towels). Great location with a lot of walking/running paths. Would highly recommend this place for others.

The Hale Ontario house was perfect for me and my family! I brought my family of 4, my parents, and my best friend so the 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms was just what we needed to have our own space to rest and/or get cleaned up to go out. The lanai and indoor dining area provided comfy areas to eat together. The open concept kitchen and living room made it easy to spend time together when cooking. The clear view of the mountains and ocean was breathtaking to wake up to everyday. The house was stocked with all the amenities we needed and more! We especially enjoyed the fresh flower arrangement and the scented soaps. We would definitely stay at the Hale Ontario again and highly recommend it to others who are looking for a relaxing retreat in Kauai.
