This totally remodeled studio condo (Hanalei Bay Resort, Unit 3105) overlooks beautiful Bali Hai, the pearl of Kauai's North Shore. Watch the surfers on Hanalei Bay as you enjoy a leisurely breakfast sitting on teakwood chairs on the slate covered lanai, then go visit the island sights, but be sure to get back in time for the sunsets!
This studio unit is a one-of-a-kind within the complex! Accessible parking (no longer free as of June 15, 2018-Ugh!) is just a few feet away from this first floor unit. The condo has been totally refurbished and nicely appointed with a modern Polynesian touch. The unobstructed view of Bali Hai is usually described by the guests as breathtaking. The beauty of the unit itself, the view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai and the accessibility and convenience of this unit make for an unparalleled combination. And it’s all within the fabulous Garden of Eden of the North Shore, the Hanalei Bay Resort. ...(NO…Please don’t stop reading, there are 3 more paragraphs of juicy information, including my cancellation policy…just click on the “More Details” link right below, OK?)
After a day of sight-seeing you might enjoy soaking in the large hot tub surrounded with travertine tile, or take a shower if that is your style. Two guests are easily accommodated in the unit. The new Simmons BeautyRest Luxury Firm mattress assures a good night’s rest after a busy day of sightseeing (Yes, it looks like a Murphy bed on the picture, but I replaced the bed part with a standard frame, box spring and the new mattress; the Murphy bed was convenient, but we never put it up anyway, and it never was very stable.). Oh, and yes, there are coolers, snorkeling gear (including two sets of the latest Full-Face masks as shown on two of my pics), and some beach toys for the little ones. And I just added an iHome® Kineta Bluetooth® FM Alarm Clock Radio and Speaker for your listening pleasure.
This studio has a small but full kitchen. And, of course, all the counter tops are granite. Air conditioning is only needed once in a while, but it’s there if you need it. Check your email on the free Wi-Fi. A beautiful beach, the Puu Poa beach,shared with the new St. Regis Hotel for great swimming and snorkeling is just a short walk away, about two blocks. And it’s all right in the center of the fabulous Hanalei Bay Resort. Free parking is very near the condo, which is very close to the pool, the guest lounge, and the fabulous Happy Talk lounge which is open from 3-9 pm serving light but outrageously delicious meals. And perhaps best of all, the Ukulele Bar, is the ONLY swim-up pool bar on the island!
We’re so proud of an article in Hawaii Magazine about my favorite beach and the Hanalei area.
And for those of you who have read my reviews—good news! I have increased your options for storing your clothes and things, BUT, if you are staying more than a few days, and you like to unpack and put your then items in a spacious dresser, you will be disappointed.
NOTE: This is a Studio, is does NOT have a separate bedroom. It has a bathroom, a full kitchen, and a large room with a sofa, a queen-size bed, and a dining area with table and four chairs. One of the photos shows how the condo is configured.
And finally, I reluctantly need to inform you of three fees: First, the resort charges a $20/daily Resort Fee collected upon checkout; Secondly, in case you didn’t notice it, VRBO/HomeAway charges a 5-10% Service Fee, and, finally, as mentioned above, parking now costs $6 per day. Sorry, about these.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Your deposit is refundable if notice is given 60 days before your arrival. If less than 60 days before your arrival, it depends on my luck in re-renting the condo: If successful, you get a full refund. If I 'm partially successful, you get whatever I can collect. Yes, this is the most generous policy I have seen!
We also have another (adjoining) studio condo that sleeps two with a California king size bed and an exotic two-person shower. Check it out on HomeAway 911447, and contact me for prices and more information on that unit, which might be available when this one is not.
