Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

From the moment you arrive, you immediately sense the Aloha spirit and the other-worldliness of Kauai's North Shore; Hanalei Bay Villas' surroundings are stunning and beyond beautiful. The unique charm, ideal location, and dramatic beauty provide an island experience to be treasured.

Our island home comfortably accommodates up to five guests. The villa is a traditional Hawaiian-style, two-story design with 1,365 sq ft of living space. To the South, the view looks over a lush green valley toward the rugged interior mountains with cascading waterfalls, shifting clouds, and brilliant rainbows. To the North, the home opens on to the shimmering blue Pacific. The scenic cliff overlook is a great place to take in sunset and to whale watch during the winter months. These natural surroundings provide a dramatic backdrop to your island retreat; some of the most beautiful scenery on the island is right at home.

The living space, covered lanai, beach closet, and half bath are on the upper/entry level. The lower level of the home has three bedrooms; a queen Tempur-Pedic bed in master bedroom, a king bed in 2nd bedroom, and a twin in the office/study. Also downstairs are two full baths, another covered lanai, and laundry area with full size washer/dryer.

The villa sits atop an ocean bluff allowing cooling trade winds to flow through the home keeping it fresh, bright and comfortable. There are numerous louvered windows throughout, sliding glass doors, ceiling fans, and several area fans. The master and second bedrooms have A/C units for additional sleeping comfort if desired.

The Neighborhood:

The St. Regis Resort is only a short walking distance away. Spend the day being pampered at the Halele'a Spa and in the evening enjoy fine dining at several of the island's favorite restaurants.

Beautiful beaches are also within close walking distance. A steep rugged foot trail leads down to Kenomene Beach (also known as 'Hideaways'), ideal for basking on the warm golden sands or resting under the large shade trees. This 300' stretch of beach is divided by a rock outcropping and offers great snorkeling and coastal views. Pu'u Poa Beach on the eastern shore of Hanalei Bay fronts the St Regis Resort and can be accessed by an outdoor staircase or resort elevator. Follow the foot trail around the bay and during low tide you can wade across the Hanalei River to Hanalei Pier & Beach Pavilion. Here you can rent sea kayaks, boogie boards, surf boards, and stand-up paddle boards to play on the bay.

Within the community of Princeville you will also find gems such as Queen’s Bath, Sea Lodge Beach, and Wyllie Beach. You can play the award winning Maka'i golf course, jog along the 3 mile path, workout at the outdoor fitness circuit, and play tennis at the nearby courts. Princeville Ranch Adventures offers exclusive zip-lining, kayaking and hiking tours on 2,500 acres of private lands on the North Shore of Kaua'i. These guided tours take you away from crowds to pristine areas that are otherwise inaccessible to the public.The Princeville Center just two miles away offers a grocery store, grab and go deli, wine market, convenience store, specialty boutiques, art galleries, full service restaurants, and casual courtyard cafes.

Just Down The Road:

Princeville, HI, between Hanalei (4.1 miles W) and Kilihiwai (7.3 mi S), is central to all North Shore attractions and activities. Truly, all are within two to twelve scenic miles of the villa; including the quaint town of Hanalei, Limahuli National Tropical Botanical Gardens, the pristine Na Pali Coast and the Kalalau Trailhead, Kilauea Point Lighthouse and National Wildlife Refuge, and many more hiking trails and beautiful beaches to explore.

If you have any questions at all, please just ask. We look forward to having you as our guest.

Found paradise

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding setting and property. The views are spectacular and it's a short walk to pristine, secluded beaches with great snorkeling. Close to the St. Regis Hotel and minutes from Hanalei, there is little reason to go far. The house is well equipped and the owners clearly aim to please.

Nice house with a beautiful view off back deck

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this home for our family reunion. The home was very comfortable for 5 adults, and we loved that the owners allowed us to use their beach chairs, beach towels, and snorkel gear. We all enjoyed sitting on the back deck and admiring the mountain view. We had a lot of fun, snorkeling, playing mini golf, shopping, etc. There were some times that I would have liked to have a/c, but the house had fans that we used and they helped a lot. The main drawback to the house was the nearby feral rooster that woke us all up EVERY morning around 5 a.m. Some of us used earplugs; I slept with a pillow over my head. That was why I couldn't give 5 stars.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Joan. We are very pleased to know you and your family were comfortable and enjoyed your stay. Sorry, not much we can do about the roosters. They do roam freely on the island and can be found everywhere. Hawaii’s official State bird is the Hawaiian Goose, or Nene, but on Kauai, everyone jokes that the “official” birds of the Garden Island are feral chickens, especially the wild roosters. Many visitors get a kick out of the wild chickens and consider them part of the island's rural charm. As most of Hawaii, we enjoy the trade wind breezes as a way to cool the home. The bedrooms do have air-conditioning units for sleeping comfort if desired - they also help drown out the "morning chorus" of roosters and other tropical birds rising early to greet each day. Again, thank you for your review. Take good care, Donna & Art

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in an amazing place. We loved our stay at Donna and Arts home, it had everything we needed. Absolutely the nicest VRBO and well stocked place we have ever stayed. The photos online are accurate but it is even better than these images can capture.

It was a pleasure to stay here with the beautiful views from the back deck to the easy access to Hideaways and the St. Regis beaches! Key to our stay were all of the thoughtful items provided, especially the beach chairs and snorkel gear. We love the North shore and spent a lot of time in Hanalei Bay. Donna was very responsive to all of our questions and so gracious to allow us a late check out. We would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat and will cherish our memories for a long time to come.

Thank you Donna and Art!

Perfect location and accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

It was the second time our family of 5 stayed at the wonderful villa. We truly love this house and location! Donna and Art are very responsive and provide everything you need for a wonderful vacation, including a list of things to do in the area. The kitchen is fully stocked, they have beach towels, coolers, water bottles, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, beach chairs, really everything you will need.

We walked to Hideaway's beach, it's a steep cliffside path with great snorkeling. You can walk to the beach at The St. Regis as well. We hiked a few different trails and had dinner in Halalei. The air conditioners in the bedrooms were nice to block out the roosters crowing at 4 am (but you hear them all over the island). All of the reviews are accurate, this is the perfect house and location!

Beautiful views and very cozy

  • 5 of 5

This little house is just perfect. Donna has it so organized - everything you need is easy to find. Well stocked kitchen which was great to cook in. The view from the back deck is super gorgeous. The house is very clean and tastefully appointed. We just loved it. Had a wonderful anniversary thanks to this house. Great location too. Short walk to the St Regis and a very cool beach is pretty much across the street using a slightly tricky cliffside trail. Easy to get the beach below the St Regis as well. We'd definitely stay here again. Thanks Donna!
