Welcome to Princeville
Located above Hanalei, Princeville is a resort community known for its amenity-rich lifestyle. Princeville is perched on a bluff 200 feet above the Pacific Ocean, which extends for thousands of miles to the north. Enchanting hidden beaches can be found at the foot of the bluff. To the south, the backdrop to Princeville is the Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge where every existing shade of green paints the mountain peaks including Hihimanu, Namolokama, and Mamalahoa all festooned with shimmering waterfalls.
Princeville properties include spacious single-family homes overlooking the ocean, tropical forest, and golf courses along with a wide selection of condominium communities. The grandest real estate features resort-style amenities, with spas and heated pools. Those closest to the edge of bluffs offer the chance to view humpback whales, host albatross, and experience spectacular sunsets from their lanais.
