Description from owner

Many people believe the Hanalei Bay Resort has the best views on the island of Kauai. Fortunately, this is where our condo is located. Also, according to reviews on major travel sites the Hanalei Bay Resort ranks #2 in Princeville.

Both bathrooms and kitchen have been remodeled using lovely bamboo cabinetry and green granite. Our hope was to make it as inviting as the gorgeous rainforest and mountains off of our lanais.

Here's what a recent guest had to say about our condo and the view, 'Your place is magnificent. You have appointed it with such lovely furnishings, most especially the amazing king bed. We have had a marvelous time and are so taken with your incredible view with the waterfalls flowing everywhere.'

If you're ready for a vacation in one of the most beautiful locations in Kauai, try this very private and tranquil condo located at the Hanalei Bay Resort in Princeville. The resort is nestled on the bluffs overlooking Hanalei Bay and the romantic Bali Hai (Mount Makana) from the movie South Pacific.

The resort has access to a beautiful beach that offers a breathtaking view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. It is perfect for families with its calm waves. Hanalei Bay Resort shares this beach (Pu'u Poa) with the St. Regis.

Our condo is on the top-floor. However, due to the structure of the building, it is not necessary to take any stairs to reach the front doors.

The condo has been professionally decorated with upscale Hawaiian furniture. There are high-vaulted ceilings throughout the condo giving it a very open, bright and spacious feel.

The master bedroom has a king bed and the has a loft which acts as the 2nd bedroom has a queen bed. The condo also has 2 full baths, a fully-stocked kitchen, and 2 lanais. It has approximately 1,100 square feet of floor space. The condo sleeps 4 people.

The master bedroom has been decorated with an upscale tropical bedroom set. Many guests have commented on the comfort of the bed. There is a private lanai off the bedroom where you can sit and enjoy the mountain/rainforest view. You'll find a dressing area, full bathroom equipped with iron, ironing board, and hair dryer.

Another lanai is off the living room and provides a perfect spot to dine while enjoying the beautiful rainforest/mountain view. From the living room you can take the stairs to the cozy loft. The loft has one partially open wall; however, its layout does offer privacy and would be very difficult for others to see the area from below. It has a very comfortable queen size bed, and does offer a closet.

The Happy Talk lounge is now open and is serving food. The Bali Hai restaurant is still closed for renovation. A reopening date has not been announced.

A wedding events manager is also available for those wishing to plan their wedding at Hanalei Bay Resort.

Hanalei Bay Resort has been recognized by Fodor’s Travel as a Best Hotel Pool in the U.S. and has been named a Fodor’s Choice Gold 2010 award winner. This achievement recognizes the Hanalei Bay Resort as having one of the best pools located on a U.S. hotel property.

Hanalei Bay Resort is a non-smoking property.

“Cannot Wait to Return”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2016

I am writing to THANK the owner’s of this lovely condo; AND, to help any hopeful future travelers to Kauai make a most important decision of “WHERE TO STAY?” My husband and I had the pleasure of staying last April, 2015, at this lovingly cared for condo/home on Kauai within the beautiful setting of Hanalei Bay Resort. I cannot imagine there is a more beautiful place on this entire earth! The owners have obviously given more than anyone can expect in making their condo/home comfortable and beautiful; while complimenting the tropical jungle and waterfall views. If you enjoy songbirds, as we do, having our morning coffee on the lanai while the birds awaken?? ...Well it is the most splendid concert one can have the pleasure to attend! We prefer dining ‘in’ to enjoy all the fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables available anytime of year. The kitchen is well equipped so it makes dining in very easy….and tables to either eat inside or on the lanai. As a bonus, we have learned the owner’s are extremely available and willing to meet our needs and answer our questions. By the way…the master bedroom bed is so comfortable, you will want to take it home with you !!

Owner's reply: Cheryl, Thank you so much for the wonderful 5-star review you have given our condo. We really appreciate the time you took to write and submit it. Since your stay we have remodeled both bathrooms, the kitchen, new tile floors, slate on the lanais, and new patio furniture. I hope you'll stay with us again and enjoy the upgrades we made. The Happy Talk Lounge recently reopened. Besides serving drinks it also offers a light menu. I look forward to working with you on your next trip. Judy

Left by a guest that checked in on March 3, 2016: We arrived in your paradise yesterday; your condo so well appointed! Your condo is beautifully appointed. Your art selection is wonderful. We dined in last evening & look forward to the next few days on Kauai. Today is hiking, then beach; tomorrow is kayaking for the men & then beach. Do we have to leave this paradise? I am so glad we found you!

December 2015 - Our stay in this condo at Hanalei Bay Resort was fantastic! The property was very clean and well maintained. The view from the lanai was beautiful! This was our first time to the island and Judy was so very helpful. She gave us a list of things to see and do on the island and everything was ready to go when we got there. The staff at the front desk greeted us with a warm smile and was very attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend this condo and can't wait to stay there again. I would definitely recommend this property to friends. Thank you Judy!!

November 2015: My wife's birthday, our 39th wedding anniversary, and our first time to Kauai. Very high expectations ... and this property delivers. A memory of Kauai we will cherish forever! Even the gentleman who brought us to the condo commented how this was one of the better units in the resort. The online photos that attracted us to this property were spot on accurate, and the mattress in the master suite was very close to being as comfortable as our memory foam mattress at home. Our first morning was magical as we woke early to drink coffee on one of the two lanais, listening to the birds and watching the sunrise. Compliments not only to the property, but to the owners. Judy helped us through the booking, and was very helpful with information about activities, dining and more. When we return to Kauai, this will be our first choice.

Date of Stay: March 6, 2016 Jeanette A. The Alley's condo at classic Hanalei Bay Resort was comfortable, clean and luxurious. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this side of HBR existed. I enjoyed being away from the main stream of the resort, in a more country setting yet close to the pool, the Happy Talk Lounge, and parking. The forest and mountain view from the two lanais is gorgeous and enjoyable for those that like checking out the flora and fauna of their surroundings as we do. The pool and jacuzzi area are protected from the wind, peaceful, and uncrowded, and the beach below the resort just how I remembered it, like being in a tropical dream. Perfect launching point for activities, beaches (my favorites, extraordinary Kalihiwai and Moloaa Bays), or a trip down to Hanalei or out to the end of the road for swimming, snorkeling, hiking, whatever. Thanks Judy, for everything!

Date of stay October 3, 2016 We were very impressed with our stay! Everything went smooth. The staff at the resort were welcoming and friendly. Thank you Judy for arranging an early check in for us! The condo was beautiful! Amazing views! It was equipped with everything we needed, the washer and dryer were very helpful! Both beds were very comfortable as I stayed a couple nights with my son in the loft:) I really liked the top floor unit with vaulted ceilings yet we didn't have to go up any stairs to get to the unit, soooo nice! We enjoyed the pool, great for young kids. My youngest could spend all day at the sandy bottom portion of the pool! The beach was great for swimming as well. We also ventured out most days enjoying queen's bath, the farmers market, Ka'a beach, napali coast trail, secret beach, and our favorite, Anini beach. The condo is very centrally located for doing many activities on the beautiful north shore. My brother got married at the resort, most beautiful wedding ever! Thank you Judy for everything!

Date of stay December 7, 2016 This is probably the nicest condo in the resort. Nearly every aspect of the unit is upgraded and the included extras made the stay awesome. Everything from beach chairs to coffee in the morning is available. In addition the beds are comfortable, there is a washer/dryer, reasonable internet, and air conditioning. The views are incredible and the resort amenities solid - especially the pool bar which has the most affordable drinks on the north shore. The host (Judy) was responsive with any questions and proactively reached out ahead of the trip to let us know about potential construction. If you're looking to stay at this resort and this condo is available - book it, you wont regret it.

Date of stay January 21, 2017 Our stay at Judy's condo was fantastic! The beauty and comfort of Judy's "home away from home" was outstanding! This was our sixth trip to Kauai but our first to the HBR. We have enjoyed staying at different locations when we travel to Kauai but now have found our #1 spot! Thank you Judy for the opportunity in allowing us to rent your lovely condo and for being such a gracious hostess. When we return to Kauai in the future, we will certainly be checking for the availability of your property first! Mahalo Judy!

Date of stay Feb. 6, 2017 My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Judy's condo. Everything was as advertised -- the staff at HBR was excellent, the property was well maintained and the condo was beautiful. We particularly loved waking up to the sunrise hitting the mountains and our sunset dinners on the lanai. The condo is clean and quiet, except for the sounds of the rainforest, which we found very relaxing after our days out and about exploring the island. We will certainly recommend this condo to anybody we know visiting Kauai. Thanks again, Judy!

February 11, 2017 Stay: We were very happy with this condo. Typically we stay somewhere oceanfront,but were even happier with the gorgeous mountain views and yes, you can also see the ocean from the unit. The unit was clean, comfortable, and the amenities and pool and beach at this resort were perfect. It was just my husband and myself but two couples could easily stay here. The second bedroom is smaller and in a lofted area but if two couples can make an agreement on the bedroom space it is more than enough room for four people. The two bathrooms and kitchen are recently remodeled and well-equipped. We would definitely recommend this condo, and my husband is very fussy ;)

February 18, 2017: We stayed at 4 places on four parts of Kauai and our only regret is that we didn't book more time at Judy's place! They have done an awesome job with the renovation. The views from the property are otherworldly, the swimming area was very close and the hot tub was a favourite when it cooled down at night. The property is well maintained and the staff are friendly and accommodating. Plus, this part of the island is really pretty and has some great beaches and hiking if you're up for a bit of an adventure. Bring your hiking poles and boots if you have them! Just a tip, if you are walking up from the beach and not taking the shuttle don't attempt the stairs you see unless you are up for a long walk back - It goes to another resort across a ravine. Whoops! Thanks again, we loved our stay - Zach and Jen
