About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Aloha all past and future guests. I have sold my condo to someone who lives a lot closer and he will be able to look after the condo even better than I could. His name is David Spaulding and he promises to keep the condo updated and in excellent condition and you should expect the condo to remain exactly as I advertised in the past.

This condo is now advertised at a new VRBO location at which is ready to accept all new bookings. He is very eager to welcome you and make your vacation the best ever. The condo has continued to receive 5 star reviews under his management.

If you have an existing booking we will make arrangements to complete your payments and pass it along to David Spaulding.

With fond warm alohas,

David Tideman

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 10/16---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 , 5/16


“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 2016


“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, 12/15


“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 2015


“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. 4/15

About David Tideman

My wife and I invested in this Hanalei Bay Resort condo in 2003 after spending many years enjoying family vacations there we have sold it to someone who lives nearby. Please book new reservations by going to VRBO 1099312. The site will look very similar to mine.

We both wish you have the most amazing vacation ever.

Aloha, David and Sarah

Why David Tideman chose North Shore

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.

Kauai vacation at hanalei bay resort

  • 4 of 5

Pros: area is very beautiful with plenty of beaches and other activities to keep you busy. You can also just lodge at pool for the day which has swim up bar and hot tub. There are hidden treasures such as the queens beach in the near area. This unit provided beach chairs, toys, etc...which was great and very much appreciated.

Cons: House keeping was late getting room ready but we were able to wait at pool which was fine. Did see a cockroach once during stay in bathroom but I'm sure this is not unusual in this tropical area.

Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha David!, where to begin! This condo was fabulous. It was equipped with all the necessities to make our stay great! When we arrived we were welcomed with a nice note and gifts, chocolates! Kitchenette was stocked great, umbrellas, and chairs were a nice add! The condo was clean and quaint. The views were breathtaking! At one point, actually at many points, we didn't have to lift our heads off the pillows to see rainbows from the balcony! The bed in the master is very cozy and comfortable! About midway during our trip we needed more towels and upon our return from the beach David left us more towels and chocolates! We cannot wait to come back! Can't say enough good things about the condo and the aloha hospitality! Mahalo :)

Amazing Views and property

  • 5 of 5

The views from the top floor apartment were amazing and some of the best the Hanalei Bay Resort offers! We were not expecting such great views. Apartment is older with carpet (clean) but the apartment location and views make up for it. Note it is on the 3rd floor, plenty of parking spots directly behind complex. Would recommend!

below expectations

  • 3 of 5

The Resort Grounds were excellent. There was a beautiful walk to the ocean. The view from the condo was nice with a little peak of the ocean. The condo was two connecting glorified hotel bedrooms. Each room had an alcove with a sink and microwave. The bed spreads were hastily thrown on the beds and the rug had many spots.

Owner's Response: Aloha Janet, I'm glad you thought the Resort was excellent. I spoke with my housekeeper and she assured me that the condo was in perfect shape when you arrived. The beds are made up using large comforters, new pillows, oversized pillow shams and smaller decorative pillows. I can only assume that someone in your party was temped to jump on the bed (which is easy given the high ceilings) before you entered the room. Regarding any carpet spots, I have them cleaned nearly every month and spot cleaned after each renter. All this heavy cleaning has led to premature wear and I plan to replace them next month. Aloha, David

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I replace the linens and pillows at least once a year. Some brands hold their shape better than others, especially the large king pillows. I'm glad the condo was otherwise excellent. Aloha, David

Beautiful setting!!!

  • 4 of 5

This was our introduction to Kauai and we fell in love with the beauty of the North Shore at Hanalei Bay Resort. The view from our unit was superb and took in the lush mountains, view of the bay and the lovely gardens and pools of the resort. Our rooms were very comfortable and our host was very accommodating in adjusting our check-out times by a few hours. We were sad to leave the resort and are hoping to be back very soon.

Owner's Response: Aloha Debbie, Mahalo for your review. The longer you stay at the Resort the harder it is to leave. I hope that you can stay longer during your next vacation. You are welcome back anytime. Aloha, David
