Property description

We can all agree that Hanalei Bay Resort is the best place to stay on Kauai, and now you just discovered the condominium that is the best value for your vacation dollar. All HBR condo owners pay the highest monthly maintenance fees on the island to support the ground’s luscious tropical landscaping - so why not sit ringside and survey the magnificent tropical foliage right form your lanai. On your top floor lanai you’ll feel like Hawaiian Royalty as you stand eye level to the coconut palm trees and gaze across the majestic pool, then past Hanalei Bay and finally resting your eyes on the distant remarkable waterfalls of Bali Hai. You'll not walk far to the amazing open air bar and restaurant. The lagoon shaped pool with its romantic waterfalls and secluded sand bottom spa support privacy for your dreamy get-a-way. The buildings are laid out on the grounds with a mindful eye toward seclusion, and you’ll have to stretch your neck from your doorway to see other condo buildings on the property. Don’t forget the beach path which winds past the 8 tennis courts also has an optional shuttle service for those in a hurry.

This top floor condo unit is connected by a ‘lock out’ doorway with a king bed on the kitchenette side and two double beds in the adjoining room. Both recently renovated rooms are individually air conditioned with separate bathrooms, 42” widescreen TV’s with DVD players. The kitchenette includes undercounter refrige and powerful microwave and toasteroven suitable for light eating. Large capacity washers, dryers and icemaker are located at the building’s lower floor adjacent to the parking. The condo is located in the “Bougainvillea”, the second building past the main lobby. There are many buildings (all named after Hawaiian plants) on the resort grounds but having close access to parking is definitely a luxury. Parking is immediately behind the building so you don’t have to hike your luggage across to the opposite side of the resort like renters to other buildings. It is a short drive to grocery stores, restaurants, gift shops, kayak rentals, surf shops and of course legendary Princeville golf course. But with the great view, bar and restaurant, you’ll never want to leave the thoughtful staff and beautiful surroundings.

Hi David,
I want to thank you for the wonderful accommodations we had at your condo. You have a wonderful place in a gorgeous spot in this world.
Thanks again.
Lorraine and Perry 12/14---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aloha David,
I wanted to tell you how much my family enjoyed staying at your condo. First, your location in the Hanelei Bay Resort is amazing! Every morning I sat on the lanai and enjoyed the view, which included a few rainbows and visiting with the birds. It was so relaxing. The staff at HBR was so helpful and kind. I also wanted to tell you how much we appreciated how you stocked your kitchenette. We shopped at Costco and had lovely meals using the hotplate, microwave and the HBR grills.
You made our trip hassle-free because everything we needed was in one of your cabinets or closets.
I hope we can return someday to beautiful Kauai.
Until that time I have memories of the ease of living in your condo for one week.
Mahalo and aloha!'

“We stayed in this glorious condo unit 2305-6 for six days and it really has one of the best views across the resort grounds. The top floor was very quiet and romantic. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay or a better value for our dollar.” Tom and Kathy , 9/12
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Wow, this place has a great view! We rented out 2305-6, our three kids stayed in the two twin beds and we took the king. It was fantastic because we both had our own separate wide screen TV’s and DVD players to unwind for the evening. Although my husband and I would sneak out to the hot tub in the evening. The kids didn’t want to leave the pool to go sightseeing. The beach was calm and sunsets breathtaking. We definitely recommend this condo and resort.” The Chase Family, March 2013
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“The Resort doesn’t have elevators so we carried our suitcases up the stairs with help from the friendly bell hop. For the rest of our stay the parking was close and not a problem. The top floor view was worth every step and the view was remarkable. The doors to the lanai opened at least six feet so that you were immediately connected to the swaying palm trees, and the shear curtain option made the room instantly romantic. We ate breakfast and lunch on the lanai and the kitchenette sufficed for the preparation and storage of all our food. We took a late night stroll through the torched lit walkways and ended up relaxing in the spacious spa. We appreciated the beauty of the condo and hope to repeat this vacation next year.” Lily and Marcus, April 13
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“My husband and I just arrived back home from our 10 day honeymoon in your wonderful Kauai condo. I am constantly looking at the pictures to reassure myself it wasn’t a dream. We couldn’t imagine a better resort or better condo to stay in. The lanai has to be one of the most romantic places on the planet. The sunset views are framed by the surrounding topography which you have to see to believe. No pictures can do this place justice because of the serenity and immense natural beauty. We will recommend this condo to everyone! Mary W. August 2013
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Unfortunately we arrived during a downpour but we got to see the resulting glorious rainbows and twelve different energized waterfalls across to the mountains. We walked around Hanalei bay, kayaked along the river and had a delicious Hawaiian shaved ice. This was just the start of a magnificent vacation. We enjoyed the condo immensely and celebrated our anniversary in the spa with our feet in the sandy bottom and our backs under the waterfall. It was great fun and I recommend the resort and condo to anyone with great vacation plans.” Jackie R. 9/13

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My wife and I invested in this Hanalei Bay Resort condo in 2003 after spending many years enjoying family vacations there. We live in Seattle and have spent the fall of 2012 working hard to completely refurbish and update the condo to make your vacation visits comfortable and care free. We appreciate the thoughtful letters acknowledging the uniqueness of this property and welcome comments on how to make it even more fabulous. We personally enjoy the lush tropical plants unique to Kauai's north end, and Hanalei Bay Resort gives special attention to preserving this special setting. We also come for the relaxing trade winds, close beach with great snorkeling, the fabulous tennis courts and the nightly entertainment. We both wish you have the most amazing vacation ever.

Why the Owner Chose Hanalei Bay Resort:
Some of the other island resorts are either too large and impersonal, or they are too far from the ocean. Hanalei Bay Resort offers everything the larger resorts have but they also have a small resort feel within an AMAZING building site lay out. The beach is a short walk down past the tennis courts and a great place to explore. The sunset views from the restaurant or bar are breathtaking, and the pool and spa both are 'over the top' with unique cascading waterfalls. All the plants are green and the flowers colorful and fragrant. Hanalei Bay Resort has friendly staff, quick bell hop service and fabulous grounds to walk around.
