Honeymoon Hideaway in Hanalei Bay Resort 4221

Bedrooms Studio
Space 640 sq. ft.
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo hotel room, Studio + single sofa sleeper 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)


When you first walk into Hanalei Bay Resort 4221 you will see Bali Hai (Mt Makana) in front of you and you'll know you have chosen to stay at the right resort and the right privately owned hotel room suite at a top North Shore condo location (voted #1 on travel sites). Why do you want this view? Its what people at the neighboring hotel pay $1000/nt to see during sunset. There is no better way to enjoy the romance of Kauai than staying on the North Shore with a private lanai/sunset view. Located high on the Princeville bluff and 12 minutes to the town of Hanalei, Hanalei Bay Resort's 22 acres of winding paths and ocean views will leave you in awe. I enjoy dinner in Hanalei at places like BarAcuda, Tahiti Nui and Hanalei Dolphin for great sushi!!!! The St Regis Hotel is right next door and offers fine dining for those special dinners or have a cocktail on the terrace at sunset. Try their Sunday brunch. Happy Talk Bar and Lounge is open 3pm-9pm for cocktails, burgers, appetizers and music.

HBR 4221 is a privately owned, self managed, air conditioned, recently remodeled large hotel room style suite with new KING SIZE BED and single sofa sleeper perfect for a young child (not good for an adult). Its for the budget minded travelers that don't need a full size condo with full kitchen. I have made making small meals easy by building in a BREAKFAST BAR with mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and blender, plus glasses and dishware.

The bbq/laundry area and small pool and beach path is a short walk away. I also supply beach toys, tennis rackets and even movies to view on the 32 inch FLAT SCREEN TV. The large award winning lagoon style pool is a short 3 minute walk up the path as is the fire pit/sunset viewing area. Now open 7 days a week is The Ukele Swim Up Bar. Its the only true swim up on the island. Come meet other guests over a cadillac margarita or mai tai. Free music concerts in the afternoon by famed local musicians. Even ukulele lessons are offered.

One of the few hotel room suites with privacy on the rear lanai!

Check out the many positive reviews on popular travel sites!!!! Google HBR 4221 or call me for more information. 925.... 872-O253 from 8am-8pm PST.

Maximum of 3 (2 adults and one child over 4 is acceptable) with use sofa sleeper for extra guest . Remember this suite does not have a full kitchen.

If you DO need a larger unit with full kitchen, living room/dining room combo and separate bedroom, please see my VRBO ad 136314 (3 max) or for a two bedroom option that can sleep up to 6, combine 4221 and 4222 ($425nt). This is the way to enjoy my island home with friends and family.









**HAPPY TALK BAR/RESTAURANT NOW OPEN 3-9pm (no need to go off property for a light dinner)


2017: $179

2018: $185

All open nights through Sept just $140/nt (2 nt minimum stay for 2 adults only)

About Joan Bettencourt

My home is in California but my heart is in Kauai. We even renewed our wedding vows at HBR for our 25th anniversary with friends and family included and I can help you arrange yours too!

I love to travel but Kauai is where I want to go back to!

Joan Bettencourt purchased this studio in 2005

Why Joan Bettencourt chose North Shore

After you visit Kauai and a stay at HBR, you will know the answer to this question. A top 10 Hawaii pool, the only swim up bar on Kauai, and sunset views over Bali Hai.

What makes this studio unique

It's all about the view. You get water views, mountain views and can watch the surfers in the winter. You will actually hear the waves at night.

We recently returned from our destination wedding/honeymoon where we stayed in 4221. I thought the pictures of this condo were amazing but they do not do it (and the view) justice. The view is breathtaking and the condo is immaculate and beautiful. This condo is well cared for and it shows. The furnishings are high quality- even the sheets. The bed was very comfortable. The condo resort is great too. The pool is beautiful and the grounds are well maintained. The owner, Joan, was very helpful and answered all my questions promptly (which goes a long way with a nervous bride-to-be trying to perfect all the details of our elopement). We fell in love with Kauai and this condo and immediately booked a return trip. I cannot say enough good things about this condo and its owner. Thank you, Joan!

Owner's Response: Aloha and mahalo for taking time out of your honeymoon to write such a lovely recommendation on my island home. I know you will return many times to Kauai as it captured your heart as it did mine 36 years ago on my honeymoon (where I stayed in the same condo). Joan

Beautiful views, excellent care by owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the lock-off portion of this unit. The bed was wonderfully comfortable; the room was large enough with a nice sitting area, the kitchenette allowed us to prepare and enjoy a simple breakfast and lunch on the deck. The view from the deck is serene and beautiful. Joan attended to every detail via email and phone prior to our arrival and while we were there when I called her with a question. She even provided a list of her favorite restaurants and activities in the area. We are so happy to have found this property and will return. The property and the property owner are real gems.

First stay at HBR and wish we could have stayed longer. The resort is fantastic from check-in to check-out and in a perfect location for us to check out the entire North shore of Kauai. The drive to the Napali Coast was easy and we found there was more to do around town at a reasonable price compared to the south shore. Beach access takes about 10 minutes walking, 5 minutes by golf cart (shuttle). This unit has an absolutely spectacular view in September with the sun setting directly at the point of Bali Hai. Perfect unit for a couple; honeymooners won't be disappointed. Concur with accolades given in many of the other posts regarding bed, bath, and amenities. We hope to be back soon, absolutely loved every minute!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo, Andrew for the very kind remarks. I always tell people that there is so much do on the majestic North Shore of Kauai, that they will wish they had spent their entire trip there. I know you will return and Bali Hai will be waiting.

So pretty!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time renting this very nice property. The interior decor is top notch. Beautiful soft sheets. Bed is very comfortable. There are plenty of towels in the bathroom. The bathroom is updated, plus a nice shower head. The unit provides a gorgeous view that you can even enjoy from the bed! You can see all the way down to the ocean and the breathtaking green hills on the left. We so enjoyed the patio with chairs where we would sit in the early morning enjoying a cup of coffee taking in the beautiful view.

We enjoy driving to the Hanelei bay pier and hanging out for the day by the ocean. I also enjoy the cute shops in Hanelei (better than the south shore!)

Wonderful unit and location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time in Kauai on our honeymoon. Staying at this HBR unit absolutely perfect! We loved the pool at the HBR and all the different activities close by. The gorgeous views of the ocean and Na Pali coast from this unit were breathtaking. We also really appreciated having the snorkel gear included in the unit; we took it to Ke'e beach one day and snorkeled around the reef. Joan provided lots of great information and recommendations on local restaurants and activities. Will definitely look to stay in this unit again when we travel back to Kauai!

Return to Paradise

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Let me start with saying that my husband and I stayed here last year and loved it so much that we came back this year and loved it just as much and so are booking it again for next year! We love Kauai, the north shore in particular, and this condo at Hanalei Bay Resort specifically. Hanalei Bay Resort is a tropical paradise, and this particular unit is beautifully decorated, updated, with attention paid to every detail. The view is no less than spectacular, even better than the pictures reveal. The kitchenette was perfect for having a light breakfast and coffee each morning on the lanai while watching the beautiful sunrises, and we used the bbq grills that are located close by, enjoying dinner on the lanai while watching the amazing sunsets. The Happy Talk Bar and Grill is now open which we also enjoyed and found to be a great addition. The owner, Joan, is very nice to work with, very welcoming, and prompt at answering any questions with lots of helpful advice as far as what to do, where to eat, etc. The staff at Hanalei Bay Resort are also very friendly and helpful, and quick to respond to needs and questions. We enjoyed walking the paths around the property and down to the beach, and the staff is quick to provide golf cart rides on request. All we can say is, we love this place so much that we plan to make an annual return to this beautiful paradise!
