About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Come enjoy one of the most beautiful condos at the award-winning Hanalei Bay Resort! It was recently remodeled with new carpet and paint, and is one of the few condos at the resort with air conditioning in both the living room and bedroom. It is not necessary all the time but it sure is nice when the trade winds are not blowing. The condo is all on one level on the 2nd floor, up 8 shallow steps.

The kitchen is completely set up for your enjoyment. The kitchen appliances were replaced with the remodel and there are granite counter tops and slate floors. The dining table will comfortably seat 5 adults. The refrigerator has an ice maker and there is a blender for creating tropical frozen drinks. In addition there is a washer/dryer, toaster and coffee maker, slow cooker, and veggie steamer.

The living room has s comfortabl decor with a large sectional sofa and ottoman with plenty of room to spread out. When you are not admiring the view outside of the large sliding doors to lanai, there is a 42' HD LCD TV for your entertainment along with an assortment of books and games. There is WiFi, so that if you do need to access the internet, you can do so throughout the condo and lanai. The living room has air conditioning for your comfort.

The luxurious master bedroom has been designed with comfort in mind. There is a king-sized, memory foam topped bed with all cotton sheets. Large sliding doors access the lanai where there is a outdoor loveseat to enjoy the view from. There is a 32' LCD TV. There is also a quiet air-conditioner in this room. It is not always necessary but it sure is nice to have this option. Not many condos have it.

The master bathroom offers a granite counter top, slate floors and ample storage space in the custom natural-wood cabinets under the sink. There is an iron and ironing board in the closet. The tub has glass doors (no clingy curtains) and is separate from the sink area. Also notice the modern glass mini-tiles and wood framed mirror. A hair dryer is provided for your convenience.

Extras for your enjoyment:

* boogie boards

* snorkel sets

* tennis rackets and balls

* cooler

* backpack

* beach chairs

* large umbrella

The location is very, very convenient within the resort. It is right by the tennis counts and the beach path. It is also right between the two pools and close to each. The round (2nd) pool below the lanai has a cabana with propane BBQ grills, tables and a kitchen available for your use. It is really nice to grill out while the kids swim with a quick walk back to the condo when you are done. Just beyond the condo's front walkway is a green lawn by the tennis courts which is a great place to have a picnic and watch the sun set. Also close to the front walkway is a place to rinse off after the beach and a large ice machine (great for coolers).

Additional resort amenities include:

* complimentary golf cart service: Golf carts can take you to/from your car, condo, beach, etc.

* 2010 Fodor's Choice award-winning, main swimming pool

* 10 person hot tub with a large waterfall

* sandy beach entry into the pool and shallow area for the little ones

* waterfalls in the pool with a small cave behind one of them

* resort towel service: trade your wet resort towels for dry ones

* propane BBQ grills

* free parking

* tennis equipment rental

* close proximity to world renowned Princeville golf courses with discounted rates!!!

Please let me know if you have any questions. I am happy to answer them. I hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do!

About Rachel Penn

We are five close friends (Scott, Rachel, Sean, Lisa & Darcy) who all live in the San Francisco Bay Area (Berkeley and El Cerrito), who crave the warmth and relaxation of the islands over and over again. We had a dream to own our own condo in Hawaii. We all LOVE Kauai, and we fell in love with the Hanalei Bay Resort in particular. So when a condo came up for sale, we took the chance, and bought into paradise. There you have it...we hope you will consider sharing our new home away from home with us. Rachel and Lisa will help you with all of your booking needs. Mahalo!

Rachel Penn purchased this condo in 2014

Why Rachel Penn chose North Shore

Oh my...why indeed. The most beautiful resort in the most beautiful town, on the most beautiful island (in our humble opinion) of Hawaii...that is why.

What makes this condo unique

The well landscaped pool and grounds at this resort are spectacular. The short walk (or chauffeured golf cart ride) to a beautiful beach, tennis and golf in close proximity, and the breathtaking sunsets from the fire pit area, conspire to make this a truly memorable place to stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

First trip to Hawaii with my girlfriend could not have gone any better. The place was outstanding and had all the amenities needed to enjoy our stay in the apartment and outside of it (RE: beach gear, snorkel gear, chairs, coolers, etc). The place is actually much bigger than the pictures elude to.

We used the concierge service that is available at HBR's front desk to book a few great activities for the week (Helicopter Tour, Surf Lessons, Dinner Reservations). They do an awesome orientation every Monday morning to inform you on all the activities available on the island and do Buy One Get One Free deals through a raffle if you attend. Anyway, great overall experience, the place is very convenient to a great beach and easy to get to Hanalei Town within 5 minutes or so, clean, spacious, and modern. Loved it. Will be back.

Wonderful A/C, very comfortable, great views!

  • 5 of 5

Retired couple - stayed here in August 2017. The weather was unusually warm so the air-conditioning was VERY much appreciated! Unit is located halfway between 2 pools. The closest is a small, round pool, which primarily we saw children playing in. The one closer to the main entry is huge, with fabulous rock formations, waterfalls, and a BAR inside the pool. Upon arrival you check-in, park in a central parking lot, and a golf cart carries you and your bags/groceries to the unit. From then on you walk about 100 yards to your car, or you can call for a cart ride. The unit itself is on the 2nd floor, meaning you climb about 12 steps to reach it. No problem unless mobility issues. We loved the condo. VERY comfortable sofa - we spent every evening curled up there watching TV & movies. Great, fully functional kitchen, with dishwasher supplies provided. Washer/dryer unit. Kitchen is great with all needed equipment and basic spices, salt/pepper, etc. Paper towels, toilet paper, and bathroom toiletries are also provided. Very comfortable bedding. The lanai offers lush views of the mountains - no ocean view - but we loved watching the waterfalls on the mountains. It rained all one day we were there and we were grateful to have such a nice setting to enjoy an indoor day. We sat on the lanai watching the rain for a few zen moments! There is a restaurant on site which serves basics (hamburgers, sandwiches, etc.). We were grateful for it during the rainy day! We would return here again.

Very nice location and roomy.

  • 5 of 5

We loved your VRBO. It was spacious and had an absolutely beautiful view. It was so comfortable and in a very good location. If we come back to Kauai again we will definitely stay there. We ate all meals on the lanai. You have a very choice location in the resort where we could see the mountains and the ocean.

One Bedroom Condominium in Princeville

  • 5 of 5

The property location is excellent and the views from the lanai outstanding. The interior and exterior were very clean and the furniture high quality. For two people, the size and layout are perfect. The Hanalei Bay Resort property includes a beautiful pool and tennis courts right outside the rental. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and hope to return soon.

Pleasant, Quiet, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 12 days at Hanalei Bay Resort. The condo had plenty of space and was very comfortable. We spent a great deal of time inside the condo cooking and found most of what we needed already there. The two air conditioners were quiet and kept the unit comfortable. The lanai is particularly outstanding. It is about twice the size of a typical condo in Hawaii. There is ample room to eat and additional space with outdoor furniture to sit and enjoy the view. We used the owner's supply of beach gear and usually walked down to the beach. We had a very nice time.

Incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this resort in this unit. We love this place and our unit is very comfortable and we felt at home while staying there. I cannot say enough about the view! The carpet is new since the last time we were there...nice. Lovely unit, incredible resort...the pool, the Happy Talk Lounge, the tennis courts, the meticulously maintained grounds...what else could you ask for!
