Hanalei Bay Resort Ocean Front!! Killer Unobstructed Bali Hai Views! 8232

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Hanalei Bay Resort is a 5 Star Resort and is widely regarded as one of the nicest places to stay on Kauai. 8232 is ideally situated on the 'point' of this 22 acre Resort giving you spectacular views! This 1 bedroom suite w/loft has some of the best views in all of Kauai. Unobstructed views of Bali Hai, Hanalei Bay, the Pacific Ocean, and panoramic 180 degree views of 4000 ft. mountains laced with waterfalls are yours when you look out or step out onto the private lanai. One of the rare unobstructed views left on Kauai. From the lanai you overlook a protected bird sanctuary while watching and listening to the white water surf of Hanalei Bay.

This 1 Bedroom condo also has a separate lockoff/hotel style room (8231)with a King Size Tropical Canopy Bed with a full Master Bath and private Lanai that sleeps 2 for added flexibility and budget. WHEN INQUIRING, PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHICH CONFIRURATION YOU ARE INTERESTED IN. 8231 sleeps 2, 8232 sleeps 4, 8231/32 sleeps 6. THIS CALENDAR IS FOR THE 1 BEDROOM SUITE, 8232 ONLY.

This condo is a top floor unit, which gives you better views, improved security, vaulted ceilings for a much larger feel, and you don't have the noise of people above you. However, this is one of the few 2 story buildings on the property; most are 3 stories, so you don't have to climb 2 sets of stairs every time you enter or leave. There are only 6 steps to reach the front door.

Furnished in authentic Pacific-style with Hawaiiana and Polynesian antiques from around the world - including China, Thailand, the Phillippines, Bali, and Burma - this beautiful condo has an amazing collection of old Hawaii touches. The spacious interior is not only elegant, but interesting and relaxing. Completely renovated by a well known designer from New York, you will find elegant white tiled floors throughout. Tropical fans give the condo a spacious and elegant feel. The bedroom has a romantic king sized canopy bed and the oversized loft has a pair of Mahogany twin beds with brand new mattresses, allowing the condo to sleep 4 people in beds. We also have air mattresses if necessary for up to a total of 6 people. Your private lanai has teak furniture, and the condo has a complete kitchen for cooking meals when you're not dining at one of the fine local restaurants. The bedroom has its own flat screen TV with DVD and the entire unit has wireless internet access. A washer and dryer are also in 8232 (one bedroom suite).

Guestbook comments from the owner


I am sitting in your lovely condo. It has been absolutely amazing for us, as we have never seen anything like this island before. Obviosly things are extremely complicated with no car and an extremely limited budget, but we are remaining totally optimistic and making the best. If we had a car, we probably wouldn't have walked along the coast, trying to get to Hanaeli Bay--it was amazing to be near the ocean and all of tht lush vegetation hanging over it! We didn't try to cross the river at that time, but did for a return from the town after paying the cab fare to get over there. Umm . . . we shouldn't have carried a beach bag as the camera and cell phones got wet when the depth got over Brad's head and had to swim! What a memory.

Anyhow, thank you for the last-minute arrangements. ... I'll be pleased to share a nice review of the facilities--and especially, your professionalism. Thanks for a life-long memory.

Beautiful views and lovely condo and resort!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Hanalei Bay Resort. The views from the large lanai were breathtaking. Sunrise in the morning with coffee viewing the bay & mountains was amazing and sunsets were spectacular! The resort grounds were so beautiful with so many flowers and the staff were all incredible. The short walk to the beach was unique and downhill the way there and up the way back (but you can call for a ride if you want :-). However, not a long walk down to the beach (5 minutes). Steve was so accommodating and very responsive. We stayed with our two teenage children and they loved the loft! Plenty of room for the whole family and the beds were all amazing. Lots of space in the living room and kitchen for cooking at home. Close to MANY amazing beaches for exploring the North side of Kauai. Would recommend this place to anyone!! And would definitely stay there again if come back to Kauai. LOVED IT!!

Long Beach

The BEST most amazing views I have ever seen.

  • 4 of 5

We took our girls on a graduation trip this summer and after tons of research on VRBO, Hotel sites etc...this listing kept coming back to me. As a Realtor I am super picky with rentals and this one was one of my favorites for so many reasons. First of all the view is so amazing it looks fake :) when you wake up to this every morning its starts your day off perfectly. Second the location of this resort is also perfect. Grocery store down the road and restaurants just down the road across the bay.

The condo is prefect for families we traveled with our 18 and 22 years olds and we were super comfortable. The décor is perfect you feel like you are in Hawaii. it could use some updating as far as the AC unit was super load like it was going to blow up but it works and the window coverings for some privacy when you need it.

All in all a great find, thanks so much for a perfect place to rest our heads after long days of hiking and sightseeing.

Beauty and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was more than we expected. It was quiet in our room, minus the typical early rooster noises. Sitting on the Lanai is breathtaking. You have an unimpeded view of the mountains and Bali Hai. I could sit outside all day enjoying the changing view, with clouds, sunrises, sunsets, rain, rainbows, etc. The kitchen was well stocked except for simple things like salt, pepper, coffee filters (we always bring things like that, just in case). The Asian style furniture was very nice and consistent throughout the place, including a cool bed. There's AC and fans, so everyone should be happy. The property is on some pretty steep hills, but a call to the front and a golf cart driver will help you out. The property amenities are great, pool, gym, sports bar, hot tub. After many stays in Princeville, this place had the best view and peacefulness. A return visit is likely.

Perfect spot in Kauai!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this unit - as did my kids (and my friends who saw it). I should note that upon checkin, HBR gave us the wrong unit. It was big, but I thought "This isn't as nice as I expected." Then they said they messed up and brought us to the correct unit -- we were in 8232, so had the one master bedroom and loft. IT WAS PERFECT. The loft is adorable and cozy and spacious, my girls loved it. And I loved the master bedroom. Such a comfortable bed, and the view is spectacular. I read reviews that note the blinds don't close -- but I have to say, it would be a shame to close them. The view you wake up to each day is amazing, I didn't want to miss a glimpse of it. (and there is plenty of privacy still). Everything in the unit works well, my son slept on the sofa and was very content. We had friends over for dinner (who had a unit at HBR too), had plenty of space to eat, drink and laugh, and we all agreed I found the best unit! The resort itself is great -- and we had a wonderful time in Princeville, Kalihiwai, Hanalei, and all surrounding areas. Definitely met my high expectations and we had a wonderful trip.

Hanalei Bay resort is an amazing place to stay. The view of Hanalei bay is like no other.

  • 5 of 5

The property is located with one of the best views of Hanelei bay. The pools and tennis courts and the Happy Talk restaurant of the resort are so beautiful and fun. We could walk to see Queens bath or to hidden beach. We also barbecued on the gas BBQ's at the little pool. The condo is nicely Hawaiian decorated and the beds are comfortable. Some of the kitchen appliances are a little outdated but all worked well. If we had any problems the resort staff would help in any way. I want to come back again someday!
