Named by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the top tropical resorts in the world. This is truly the Hawaii of your dreams.
Hanalei Bay Resort is a scenic paradise with awe inspiring views. You'll be surrounded by cascading waterfalls and lush foliage - a mixture of tropical scented flowers so sweet, it will be hard to forget.
Sip on a cool drink and gaze out at beautiful Hanalei Bay and the magical Bali Hai. You'll wonder what took you so long to discover Kauai.
Our fabulous ground floor condo in Banana Building provides guests truly unobstructed views plus the luxury of a large grassy yard surrounded by lush tropical foliage for extra privacy. When gazing out at shimmering Hanalei Bay from our comfy living room you won't have to gaze through bannisters but rather you will have a truly unobstructed view that allows you to sit inside the condo and be mesmerized by the beauty of Kauai. Plus there are no stairs to climb, and the kids can play directly in front of the condo on the large grassy yard. As an added convenience our condo is situated close to the small swimming pool and BBQ's.
Every year we update our Hawaiian home so it will be pleasing to our long list of repeat clients (Ohana - extended family). Our eclectic furnishings embrace the essence of Hawaii, from our custom hand painted tile (created by a local artisan)to our newly remodeled Plantation style bathrooms. It has been my goal to create an ambiance that is comfortable, inviting and exudes island charm and character.
The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining allowing guests to meander from the interior of the condo, past the lanai onto the large grassy yard. We have spent many sunsets from this vantage point hoping to glimpse the 'green flash.'
Our condo has an inviting well stocked kitchen that will make cooking a snap. Our living room has a large flat screen TV, stereo with CD player, VCR/DVD player, plus a well stocked video library of DVD's and VHS tapes. For those looking to get caught up on reading we have a large book lending library plus board games. However, you will be hard pressed to take your gaze of the shimmering of Hanalei Bay below.
This sought after condo's bedroom (7106) has a large private lanai, en-suite bathroom, cable TV and IPOD docking station. During most months, except summer, you will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the peaceful waves lapping at the beach below...

I have always loved Hawaii - when I was young I lived on Maui, then when I was raising my own family my husband and I traveled to the islands with our children and immediately fell in love with Kauai. We were fortunate to be at the right place, at the right time and bought our island home. We have created priceless memories in our vacations to Kauai, we are truly blessed...we invite you to be part of our Ohana...
Joyce Craddock purchased this condo in 1995
Hawaii's culture and people have always fascinated me. Living in California it is an easy flight, weather is always perfect. Hawaii's beauty is intoxicating, the sights, smells, the warm tropical breezes all blend in perfect harmony with Hawaii's unique flora and fauna to create a destination many dream of visiting one day. I have been incredibly blessed to be able to call Hawaii home for more than 15 years now!

I have a six page list of activities, restaurants, beaches etc I send all my guests. To be honest I have done most everything on the island, but my greatest joy is walking from Haena State Park to Ke'e Beach - it is a 1 1/2 hour walk that you must do in the early morning. You will see perhaps just a couple people along the way. But when I have taken this walk I have swam with turtles, monk seals, seen pods of spinner dolphins and actually almost walked into a monk seal! This is Hawaii at its finest - access is easy, it is not strenuous, you can swim along the way and the view of the Na Pali Coast is breathtaking. Just view my photo of Ke'e beach, which I took on one of my many walks. So in Kauai I would say the best things are free of charge!
"hanalei bay was awesome with a great first floor view and and close to pool and restaurant as well, especially enjoyed the local birds and breeze from the ocean... this condo rocks for a twosome, nice kitchen, bath, and living area.. love to return...thanx joyce "

I recently escaped to Kauai for some rest and relaxation, renting this fabulous condominium at Hanalei Bay Resort. I was pleased to find the condo was well equipped, maintained and tastefully decorated. Best of all, the views from the condo were mesmerizing and I spent many hours relaxing and enjoying the view. When not out exploring, I spent several lazy evenings lounging by the pool outside the condo, cooking food on the barbecue, and enjoying a glass of wine under the stars. Truly had the vacation of my dreams!
My husband and I recently got back from kauai, we stayed at The Hanalei Bay Resort, room 7106, the first thing we noticed when we walked in is the view!!!! It's absolutely amazing, complete views of Hanalei Bay, and Bali Hai! Then the condo, it's huge and very relaxing. The bed was very comfortable, and nice furniture. Privacy was important to us, as we're on our honeymoon, and this was definitely achieved! Joyce was very helpful to make our stay enjoyable. The photos online don't do the condo justice, not to mention the panoramic views, but there have been many updates! I would recommend this condo to anyone!
The Hanalei location is great but this property has not been maintained and the beautiful VRBO photos are very outdated and misrepresent the current condition of the property. We were very disappointed in the cleanliness and condition of the unit and discussed it with the owner. Surprisingly she was aware of most of the issues (wallpaper, cabinet, dryer,..) and indicated they would fixed in the future. Personally I expected the issues below to be remedied BEFORE I arrived, not after I left. Owner was generally unresponsive to our concerns. Issues as follows:
Large cockroaches in the bathroom
Broken Clothes Dryer
Black mold growing on wallpaper
Strong mildew smell from carpet
Dusty light fixtures and decorative flowers
Kitchen cabinet door - broken hinge
Kitchen recessed light - hanging below ceiling by wires
Missing light bulbs - dining room and living room
Peeling wallpaper in living room, dining room and hallway
Patio furniture with rotten wood and faded upholstery
Broken exterior Patio door handle
Stained curtains in bedroom
Broken louvre blinds mechanism next to front door
Non functional or intermittent WiFi signal
AC sensors broken on front door and patio door
We loved the patio, the privacy from the patio and the view. While the unit was very clean when we arrived, we found it in need of some updating. Kitchen was big and well stocked, with a washer / dryer handy. Bed was soft.
If walking is difficult for you, know that you have to walk to and from the parking area and all activities. There are inclines.
Check in was easy and the staff we encountered during our stay were kind and helpful. Tennis a big plus. Nice courts.
My husband and I just spent 8 days in this wonderful apartment, and enjoyed every minute! We are in love with Kauai, especially the north shore area around Princeville and Hanalei. This apartment is part of the Hanalei Bay Resort, which was the perfect spot for us to explore the area. There's a path down to the small beach shared with the St Regis. It never got crowded, and it was easy to find a semi-private spot in the shade under the trees that line the beach. After one afternoon of very heavy rains, the water turned murky and brown from all the rivers running into Hanalei Bay, but all other days, the water was perfectly clear. The resort was really nice, although we never spent time at the pool, and the restaurant and bar were closed for renovations. People looking for party should probably look elsewhere, but the resort is perfect for nearly everyone else. It is quite hilly, but there's a shuttle service you can call to take you to and from the lobby or parking lot. They will even pick you up at the bottom of the hill if you're coming up from the beach.
The apartment was nicely sized for the two of us, with a separate bedroom and a large air-conditioned living room. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the lanai has a fantastic view over the bay and the mountains on the other side. I'm so in love with this island, and for our next trip I will look up this place again. Joyce even sent a multi-page document with recommendations of things to do and see, and where to eat. Thanks!!
Stayed here for 5 nights and loved every minute of it - highly recommend this place.
Stunning views, nice feel about the resort, and the condo has everything you would need. Short walk to the beach and beach bar of the Regis, I could have spent hours here if there was not so much to do on the island. The condo is really nicely decorated and has a great modern homely feel from books and DVDs and CDs to the most comfy outside lounges I have ever laid on. Pool area beautiful and we wiled away several hours in the sand bottomed spa with a red wine surrounded by tropical plants - bliss!
Joyce was helpful the whole way through, and made it so easy for us to stay another night when we decided we couldn't leave!
Only down points didn't really affect us at all. There is construction going on on site, but the condo is so far away you don't hear anything, and only see the odd thing down that end of the resort. Also the resort staff were not so friendly at the reception desk (the activities guy was sooo dismissive) but this is not a reflection of this condo - you can arrange everything yourself and after checkin there is no real reason to have anything do with the resort staff anyway.
As an island Kauai is more than worth the visit - Na Pali coast walk, the Canyon, and Hanalei are highlights (and if you haven't taken a helicopter ride, do it!) - and now having been there, I don't think there's a question of which side of the island to stay on - this is it.
I really hope I'll be back one day.
The northshore of Kauai is what most visitors envision when they dream about Hawaii...
Kauai is the oldest of the inhabited islands and has the most beaches per square mile, out of any of the islands. The backdrop of the northshore is what Hollywood uses in films over and over, it is breathtakingly gorgeous.
If you have ever been to Tahiti, specifically Moorea - the north shore of Kauai is even better, because of the beaches!
The charm of Hanalei Town is like a step back in time...
This side of the island is not full of resorts, there is just 1 hotel - this side of the island is about preserving the beauty that has drawn visitors back to the Garden Isle over and over...
We welcome you to come and experience the essence of the Hawaii of old...
