About Janice Leutheuser

Both my husband Fritz and myself, Janice, grew up on the east coast in Michigan and Georgia respectively. After my husband decided to start his own business and I left the airline industry to start a family, we settled in beautiful Santa Barbara, CA in 1991. We have two children in college now and an unrelenting thirst for travel!

Janice Leutheuser purchased this condo in 2002

Why Janice Leutheuser chose Princeville

Traveling extensively for 9 years within the airline industry provided me with a great insight as to the 'special' destinations that sung to me. The north shore of Kauai kept calling upon us, thus, we returned year after year until we found our sanctuary at Hanalei Bay Resort. I can honestly say it is still getting harder and harder to leave paradise behind!

What makes this condo unique

Tropically furnished with bamboo cathedral ceilings, a loft with 2 queen beds for added accommodations, three bedrooms with new Travertine tiled shower/tub, a fully stocked modern kitchen with granite counter top and glass/cherry cabinetry, washer/dryer, dining area seating for 8-10, large comfortable sectional sofa/chaise, and 3 private lanais all with unobstructed views of Hanalei Bay and the mountains beyond. Building is situated at the start of the paved beach path and directly across from the tennis courts, ice machine, and resort laundry facility.

Guestbook comments from the owner

HBR is a large condominium resort made up of several 3-story buildings, some of which have fantastic views of the mountains and Hanalei Bay. It has gorgeous, well kept-up tropical grounds and a very laidback Hawaiian feel to it. Cars are not allowed within the resort itself- just the little carts driven by hotel staff, so depending on which unit you stay in, you may have quite a walk to your car.

We booked a 1 bedroom unit with a loft in the Palms building- number 4302, to be exact. Every unit is different and I can only comment on the one we stayed in, but if you have the opportunity, this is a great unit to stay in. It’s on the top floor, with 2 private decks overlooking gorgeous bay and mountain views. It’s spacious and high-end, and looks like it was renovated recently, with stainless steel appliances and a tropical design theme. The unit is so well-stocked, it seemed I just had to look for something and there it was. It also came with some nice welcome goodies.

If I could change one thing, it would be to have the resort pool heated- it’s beautiful, but not very welcoming in the winter. Also, if you’re trying to find the resort for the first time, keep in mind when you’re driving along Kuhio Highway that there’s no sign for Ka Haku Road, and you should just make the turn when you see a dark brown sign for the St. Regis.

The Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Like the other reviewers have mentioned, Janice's property is simply breathtaking and the pictures do not do it justice. We had 6 adults and a toddler in the 3 BD + Loft Condo and we had plenty of space. Everything was very clean and the property itself is lush with beautiful flowers. The kitchen was fully stocked with spices and appliances. More than you would ever need. The beautiful welcome basket was greatly appreciated! We will undoubtedly be back. Thanks for the amazing stay!

Beautiful Condo and can't beat the view

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in the unit. The condo is just perfect for a family and a visit to the north side of Kauai. Janice is very easy to book with. Answers any questions promptly and provides plenty to information about the resort and area. So any questions that you don't know to ask get answered !! The condo is very comfortable and stocked with anything needed for our stay. The resort has added a swim up bar!! Loved it.

Celebrating our 10th Wedding Anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at HBR #4302! The condo is very spacious & comfortable. The view on the lanai is beautiful. We had coffee on the lanai each morning overlooking Hanalei Bay!

Happy Talk Lounge has delicious food & is so convenient in case you don’t feel like cooking. We have recommended your property to our friends!

Mahalo Janice, for allowing us to stay & celebrate our anniversary in such a special place!!! 🌺 🌴

Beautiful location and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with two other couples stayed in the three adjoining condos overlooking Hanalei Bay. The accommodations were excellent. There were comfortable beds and furniture. The center unit had a great kitchen with all new appliances and all the tools and gadgets you could ever need. There were lots of beach chairs, mats, boards, tennis racquets, etc. for use on the grounds and in the ocean.

The staff on site were very good and helpful. Shuttle services to the beach and between rooms and restaurants were fast and efficient.

We enjoyed the pool area and loved the beach. There is rather good snorkeling just off the beach. We went once and saw 2 turtles (up close), a small sea snake, an octopus, and many, many fish.

The property was very well maintained, clean, and beautiful.

The pool area was nice, clean, and had a swim-up bar service that we enjoyed (great Mudslides).

We happened to hit a bad time for weather, but still had an excellent time on the property.

We hope to hear from you again whenever Kauai calls upon you in the future. Mahalo!

Great unit with amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We rented 4302 & 4303 & couldn't have been happier. The unit was well equipped with an updated kitchen & spacious couch to accommodate our whole family. The best part of the unit had to be the amazing view of Hanalei Bay off the lanai. Was the perfect spot for morning coffee or an evening cocktail. We would definitely recommend this unit & this resort. Great little beach just a 5 minute walk down the beach path too!

This was the perfect place for our family of 10. The condo was amazing, really clean and very comfortable. The views were out of this world, we woke up to rainbows every morning on the lani. Janice had an amazing welcome basket with fruit, coffee and chocolate, it was super sweet! The resort was great, with an amazing pool and sand bottom hot tub with water falls! There are places to sit and relax throughout the resort. The staff was amazing, I really couldn't ask for more! The resort has everything you can ask for, I really didn't want to leave the resort at all. I would definitely come back and stay in this condo!

Thank you Janice for opening you wonderful peace of paradise to us!!!
