What dreams are made of!
Kauai is hands down my favorite place that I’ve ever been to, and Sea Lodge E3 was the icing on the cake. The property management team made sure we had everything we needed, the whole checking in and out process was so simple, and the condo itself was comfortable and well equipped. There are no words that could adequately describe the panoramic views of the North Shore coast from this condo. It is a quiet and peaceful place for anyone looking to avoid a big resort setting. From the morning rooster calls, Nene visits, and spectacular sunrises on the back porch, to the sunsets that take your breath away, E3 was nothing short of perfect! Our stay was unforgettable, and we will without a doubt stay here again whenever we come back to Kauai!

This condo is a lovely and has enough room for a party of 3. The kitchen could use an update, but it is usable and clean. What we really, really loved about this property was the view. We also found the most diversity of fish snorkeling at the beach down the hill. We loved it.

Beautiful views, clean, accommodating hosts!
We had an amazing time staying at Jim and Michelle’s place. The house was clean and we were able to find everything that we needed for our stay. I worked remotely for the first part of the day and I can honestly say there may not be a better view to wake up to anywhere in the world than the view from the back patio. This place is worth it for the view alone! The house had board games and other gear that made it perfect for our kids as well. A strong game of monopoly was played!
Our family really enjoyed staying in this area on the north side of the island. It was a quiet area that was a short drive to Hanalei (great for surfing and adventuring). Also, it is worth noting that pretty much everything on the island is accessible.
After leaving the island, our family fell in love with this area and I would stay at this place again without hesitation. I highly recommend it if you’re looking to relax and enjoy the culture of Kauai.
Mahalo Karlina for the 5-star review and comments. I agree, the view is amazing and so glad you had the opportunity to enjoy it during your stay (sorry you had to work though). We look forward to hosting you again soon.

Can’t say enough about this location. The place was super comfortable and the views were to die from. The property management company was great, easy to reach, and helpful. I’m giving it 4 stars instead of 5 only because the dishwasher was not working during our stay and it was quite inconvenient, especially since we were not told in advance about it despite them knowing the repair part delivery was delayed.
Mahalo for the review Harsha. We agree, the view and location is amazing. We apologize on the dishwasher, the part had to be ordered and being out here in the Pacific, it often takes time. We thought it would have been in, but unfortunately not. Sorry we did not notify you. Aloha
2nd time at Sea Lodge
The property could stand a little maintenance but the location and views more that make up for the minor problems.All things considered I would stay here again. Watching the sunrise while having breakfast on a high bluff over the Pacific and watching an Albatross learning to fly will be my lasting memory of this place.
Mahalo Bill for the 5-star review and glad you will be coming back. Hopefully soon. What a cherished moment watching the young Albatross. Lucky you.

Stunning location, comfortable unit
This unit is just as advertised. It isn’t modern or overdone but is really comfortable and well-equipped and reasonable priced. We loved that the facility was not pretentious and each unit is quite private. The views were simply stunning. The property manager was easy to work with.
Mahalo Janet for your 5-star review and comments. We are so happy that you loved the unit and its location. Glad to hear that you found everything that you needed to help you feel comfortable during your stay. We cannot wait to host you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou.

Relaxation at its finest ????
You know the white noise sound of waves crashing into rocks, I’m pretty sure that was recorded from this condo. One of the most relaxing vacation rentals I’ve ever stayed in. Hear the waves as you fall asleep, have morning coffee on the patio while watching whales breach, and lay in the reading nook while getting some snuggling in. This condo has everything you need for activities (icechest/beach towels/beach chairs), food/cooking (pots and pans/toaster/coffeemaker/ fridge/freezer) and relaxing (comfy chairs/blankets/nice sheets) Located on the north of the island, so if you’re going down south for activities, you’ll need to drive. We went down south 4/7 days -- and the drive wasn’t too bad but got annoying by day 4. Five minute drive to the grocery store or 20 minute walk. Check out the sea lodge beach trail and waterfall! Overall stunning location and stay! Would 100% recommend.
Mahalo isla c for your 5-star review and comments! We are so happy that you found the relaxation you were hoping for at Sealodge #E3! Glad to hear that you found everything you needed in the unit and had a wonderful stay. We hope to host you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou!
Perfect little condo
This is the perfect condo for any couples looking for a relaxing getaway. We stayed for a full week, which this place had everything we needed for our stay and amenities for going out (towels, chairs, cooler, etc).
The panorama window views of the coast from inside the condo and sounds of ocean waves were unreal. We were able to enjoy our coffee and watch the sunrise over the bluff from the back porch. On our last morning, we were even able to watch whales breaching and get an up close view with binoculars available in the condo.
Sea Lodge beach was one of our favorites on the island. It was roughly a 10-15 minute walk down to a secluded beach, where we only saw about 2-3 other people each time we went down. We were able to spot some sea turtles off the shore a few times too. Just off the path, you can also find a stunning 30ft waterfall.
Princeville is pretty far north on the island, so we were more than ready to stop driving south to attractions mid-way through the week. However, proximity to Princeville center was really helpful for our stay and gave us a 5 minute drive or easy walk to restaurants, grocery store, shaved ice, ice cream, shops, etc. Hanalei was also only about 15 minutes away and had beautiful beaches, shops & restaurants.
Overall, I highly recommend this place to stay for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
Mahalo stricklanderin for your 5-star review, comments and recommendation. Sealodge E3 is a hidden gem and we are glad you got to enjoy it. Hope to host you again soon. Aloha

View, View, View!
There is a spectacular view from every window. We spent much time sitting on the couch or window seat just looking out. The beauty of the sea never disappointed or got old. Just watching the sky change, the clouds roll, the colors of the sea change and rainbows going by were entertainment enough Gorgeous sun rises every morning through our east facing bedroom window. When we first arrived I was a bit disappointed at the look of the buildings -- shake wood is not my style. When we arrived in our suite it was cute and simple extremely adequate. When we opened the windows, WOW! WOW! WOW! The view of the ocean and Anini Reef were never disappointing. Princeville is very north on the island. There is a laid back luxury vibe going on. Most of the resorts and houses are high end. If you want a simple vacay with time for quiet and reflection, this is the place. We didn’t even look at the pool, or go down to the beach. The view from our condo was so great, all we did was hang out there. This wasn’t a good home base for the activities that take you to the south of the island as driving back in the dark and rain could be a bit challenging. However, Hanalei and Kilauea were easy drives (different directions). The shuttle stop for Haena Park is also near by and easy to access. “To Go” food is really easy from the North Shore General Store (inside the gas station) , Foodland, and the various restaurants and delis inside the Shopping Center. Parish offices are located in the Center, but we only went there once to pick up our welcome packet. There are regular shops in Hanalei, Chicken in a Barrel was really good. The Lung shopping center on the way to the Kilauea Lighthouse are a little more high end. I had the best coconut macaron at the Bakery in Kilauea. Cannot say enough about just sitting in the condo with the windows open for the breeze and sound of the waves with the gorgeous, gorgeous, view.
Mahalo Kristi for your 5-star review and comments! We agree that the view from Sealodge is incredible. We are so happy you loved the unit and that you really had time to enjoy the view and get out to explore the local shops and dining. We are looking forward to hosting you again soon! A hui hou!

Gorgeous Perch On A Cliff Above The Ocean
We’ve stayed at some amazing ocean front accommodations but this one was the most amazing. The condo itself is low key and unassuming. The shingled exterior looks a bit tired and dated. Once you see the view, the exterior is no longer relevant. The porch opens up to a small lawn area right next to the sea cliff. The 180 degree view of ocean is an amazing site at sunrise. We were lucky to have excellent sunny weather each of the 4 days we were there. There was even a high surf warning to make the scene even more spectacular. The condo is also very quiet and private. We only saw one person walk by our view. We also had Nene’s come right up to our porch. It is fully stocked and even has nice beach chairs and a small washer/dryer. It was a bit hot inside during the day but cooled off nicely at night. This unit is northeast facing so it doesn’t get much direct sun (a bonus). I would highly recommend.
Mahalo Sherilyn for your 5-star review and comments! We are delighted that you loved staying a Sealodge #E3! We agree that the views are incredible from that unit and are so happy you enjoyed those stunning sunrises. We are looking forward to hosting you again soon. Aloha and a hui hou!

Wonderful stay at Sealodge
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Sealodge. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and quiet, very conveniently located, and the views were unbelievable. I’d definitely stay here again! One small note is that the apartment doesn’t have AC. This was largely entirely ok with the ocean breeze coming in, but the mornings did get a bit steamy with the sun rising into the windows.
Mahalo Marina for the 5-star review and comments. We look forward to hosting you again soon. A hui hou.
Aloha -- Kauai at its best! The lodging has a beautiful layout with scenic views from every spacious square foot. From the lighthouse’s nightly beacon, pristine beaches in the distance, magnificent sunrises and gorgeous sunsets, to the coral shelf wrapping its way along the coast radiating beautiful ocean colors and recreation. A perfect location close to shops, restaurants, excursions, Shave Ice, beaches, and so much more. On the patio; morning coffee watching the sunrise, afternoon drinks of choice observing paddle-boarding, fishing, swimming, and evening cocktails focusing on glorious sunsets round out days of absolute relaxation.
Barrie Jones says
WOW! Gorgeous location!
What an amazing location! Gorgeous ocean views from every spot in this condo. We enjoyed waking up every morning to the most beautiful sunrises right from the lanai. Wish we could stay longer but will be back soon to relax at this perfect little gem!
Courtenay Craig says
What an amazing place E3 is. Right next to the beach with an unobstructed view of the ocean. There’s some local birds that visit each morning and we named them, so very cute. E3 was lovely and relaxing and beautiful to just sit by the window and watch the waves and birds. We will be going back very soon!
Sue DiMarino says
Relaxing, beautiful, peaceful....heaven.
I enjoyed my stay immensely! The views are breathtaking and incredibly beautiful. To sit out on the patio with morning coffee for the sunrise and again at night for sunset enjoying a glass of wine was my most memorable and absolute favorite parts of the day. It is quiet, peaceful and beyond relaxing, a little piece of heaven to escape to and rejuvenate. I highly recommend this hidden gem…you will love it!

Never wanted to leave
This unit is what we dream of. Watch the sunrise from your bed. Breathtaking views from all angles. You can watch the waves break into the bay at Anini Beach, see the lighthouse and enjoy feeling like you are totally alone. This unit sits so that it is you and the beauty of Kauai. If you can draw yourself back inside or away from the windows the unit has a great daybed in a bay window to relax in while reading. The king bed also has a view of the ocean. The unit has an open design so that you can see outside from almost every angle. The kitchen is stocked with everything you may need to make a gourmet meal. Everything is provided for you. The grounds are beautifully groomed with native plants and flowers. The pool area is designed to be as relaxing as the units. There is a pathway down to the beach from the complex. It was hard to leave this unit, I look forward to our next trip to Kauai and this Sea Lodge unit.
Mahalo Marcia for you 5-star review and comments. We look forward to hosting you again on your next trip. Aloha an a hui hou.
