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

* 24 hour front desk

* water sport rentals (surf boards, additional snorkel gear, beach chairs, etc.)

* 8 tennis courts

* tennis pro shop

* tennis equipment rental

* beach access to Pu'u Poa beach (shared with the St. Regis next door)

* 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 Lisa Craig

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!

Lisa Craig purchased this condo in 2014

Why Lisa Craig chose Princeville

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.

Great property

  • 4 of 5

Condo is very nice - beautiful views, hotel pools and hot tub on are very well designed and surrounded by beautiful stone work and landscaping. Walk to the beach is only ~5 minutes. Rachel was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with!

Beautiful views and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our time in this beautifully appointed condo. The views from the lanai were amazing - on a cool, grey morning, we threw open the doors and enjoyed the view over coffee from inside. We loved having breakfast at "home" on the lanai before setting out for the day, looking out on countless waterfalls. The resort is beautiful, and the beach shared with the St. Regis is stunning. Perfect home base for a few days in paradise.

Perfectly located in Kauai

  • 5 of 5

I'm writing this on our last morning in this beautiful location. We hate to leave but had a fabulous time here. Hanalei Bay Resort is a quiet, beautiful small resort with very friendly staff. Happy Talk is their open air restaurant with music every night from 6-9pm. The swim up pool bar was also a highlight serving sandwiches, salads and fabulous tropical drinks. And we always were able to find open chairs at the pool. The views from this condo are incredible. Look forward to amazing sunsets every night. The condo was larger than we anticipated with very spacious rooms and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed to make any meals. You'll love it here!

Overall a very nice and clean unit for one couple

  • 4 of 5

We always enjoy staying on the N. Shore as it is so less crowded than the S. Shore. This was first time staying at HBR but we are not new to the area. The unit we rented from the owner was great, very clean and well equiped with beach gear. The owner was also very responsive to a few very minor details. Over all I would recommend this uint. I think there are better views in the Bamboo Bldg if you really want that killer view; but the view from this unit was nice. We wanted to check out HBR for a future trip with my daughters family and her two kids. The salt water pool was nice; the walk down to the beach was not bad - and they also have golf cart service if you cant make the hike. This unit had AC which we needed.

Stunning Views!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a beautiful place. We stayed here for a week this past September. Everything was just great. The oversized balcony is just perfect. We had breakfast and some dinners on it every day watching the sunrises, sunsets and lots of rainbows. Inside, plenty of room, comfortable bed, and everything we needed. The resort is also beautiful. The staff goes above and beyond to help you, if needed. The views are worth millions! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Here for a wedding.

  • 5 of 5

This place could not have worked out any better. It was actually larger than I anticipated and

very conveniently stocked with about everything you could need. Loved the view from the lanai. The large refrigerator really came in handy.

The Princeville area is stunning.
