If you are looking for the perfect tropical destination on the North Shore of Kauai, this is it. Overlooking Hanalei Bay with views of Bali Hai (Mt Makana), Hanalei Bay Resort 4222 is special! HBR has always been regarded as one of the top condo complexes to stay on the North Shore of Kauai (RANKED #1 ON A POPULAR TRAVEL SITE) and in 2014 it got even better with an entirely new award winning lobby, artificial grass tennis courts, fitness center, swim up bar (the only one on Kauai), conference center/hospitality room and a fire pit area for sunset viewing. Stroll along 22 acres of tropical landscaping and quiet orchid lined paths (no cars on the property) and enjoy a complimentary mai tai every Monday by the pool @ 4pm and listen to our free concerts by famous local musicians. Ever play Bloody Mary Bingo? Well we have it at the swim up bar!!!! Sit on the slate covered lanai of 4222 and witness some of the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see. Play tennis on the resurfaced courts including 4 artificial turf courts at no extra charge. Our tennis resort was named one of the top 50 tennis facilities in the WORLD and we have pros on site and clinics to enjoy (I supply the rackets to save you $20/day). Bali Hai views are from every room in 4222, not just your lanai like so many other units. When you first walk in you will be wowed, I promise. After a light rain in the morning, the rainbows will dance off the bay. The mountains will glow red with the morning light. Beware....its hard to leave the condo to explore the beautiful North Shore in the mornings after sipping Kauai coffee and being mesmorized by the view.

This sought after and popular condo which is recommended frequently on travel review sites and social media (just seek out Hanalei Bay Resort 4222 and you will find them), can be rented as a ONE BEDROOM that sleeps 2-3 (4222) or TWO BEDROOMS that sleeps 4-5 max (4221 and 4222 combined). Please let me know if you are interested in the larger unit and I can send you more information and a quote. 4221's VRBO page is 283525 to see more pictures. This unit has a king bed and single sofa sleeper that sleeps 3 total comfortably with no kitchen facility. It has a coffee maker and mini fridge.

ONE OF THE FEW CONDOS AT HBR WITH AIR CONDITIONING IN THE MASTER BEDROOM as well as the living area. Not all rentals at HBR have A/C in the bedroom. Most of the time my tropical ceilings fans are all you need. Beautifully remodeled kitchen with exotic green granite from Brazil and bamboo soft close cabinets with glass inserts. Stainless steel appliances and everything you need in a fully stocked kitchen (if you WANT to cook). The bathroom was completely remodeled with a walk in/glass enclosed shower, travertine tile floors, granite counter top and spa like vessel sink. New bedding and artwork was also added to give it that colorful tropical feel everyone desires when traveling to Hawaii but still has a sophisticated feel to the decor. Enjoy the lanai with the eucalyptus wood furniture including a rocking chair, lounger and table that seats 6. New living room furniture arrives in May.

Pu'u Poa Beach and The St Regis Hotel are below via a paved path near the lower tennis courts. Bell service can drive you down and back up after an afternoon of snorkeling or kayaking or just enjoying a drink or lunch at the St Regis poolside bar. Its a quick walk down too.

Other top beaches like Anini, Hideaways, Ke'e and Tunnels are within a 5-25 minute walk or drive along with many activities (zipline, golf, horseback riding, surfing, SUP, kayaking, hiking, garden tours, farmer's markets and mini golf), and dining in the towns of Hanalei and Princeville are so convenient. My favorite restaurants are BarAcuda in Hanalei for tapas and cocktails (and Hollywood star sightings) and Kauai Grill at The St Regis for that extra special $$$ dining experience. In the Princeville Shopping Center try Piazza and Tiki Iniki owned by a famous rock star.

Activity discounts and restaurant suggestions are offered through our onsite concierge (visit them at the island orientation and try to win 2 for 1 activities or ask about their $50 off deal for a North Shore helicopter tour). There is golf cart transportation to your room if needed, around the resort and to the beach below. A tip now is then is appreciated by our staff if you so choose.

HBR is a top wedding location. We have our own personal wedding planner so please inquire if you need her information. (Weddings or vow renewal up to 40 people).

Please ask if you see less than minimum stay open in between another reservation and that is all you need.

You'll find condos for less albeit, but its not the best!

VRBO's quotes are not always accurate or confirmed until owner and guest have had direct contact via email or phone and quotes have been updated for any added discounts and accommodation tax.

ALSO we DO NOT ask you to wire money so if you are asked to wire money to anyone it is more than likely a scam! I TAKE MOST MAJOR CREDIT CARDS AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE and I will call you for details AS I DO THE CC PROCESSING (secure website). At this time I am not accepting American Express due to their high fees. Book with me with the confidence you are staying with an owner who cares and will take good care of you. No added booking fees like a property manager.

********I recommend purchasing trip insurance*********

Resort fee 2018: $20/day to be paid by guests at checkout. This covers parking, wifi, tennis court usage, fitness center access, local calls and all resort amenities.


The calendar below is for 4222 only

For a larger condo I have HBR 4221-2 that sleeps 4-6 max. Its a combo of 4221 and 4222 at $425/nt.

Rates subject to change for all open dates in 2018 until reservation confirmed .



Besides saying that we will never regret choosing Kauai as our Hawaiian island of choice for our (hopefully not) once-in-a-lifetime vacation...my husband both agree that this condo unit 4222 under Joan Bettencourt's ownership was a wise gamble.

From the moment we stepped into the beautiful open-air lobby we just felt like we were dreaming and this whole vacation had to be too good to be true! It wasn't. The condo was beyond our expectations. It not only had updated furniture, but it was SO clean. Not just surface clean, but the comforters were clean...which is always a huge indicator for me of a quality vacation rental. The bed was very comfortable, our sleep was so solid.

Something that stood out as well was the fact she made sure there were AC units in both the bedroom and living room. We are AC dependent, living in a tropical area ourselves, so when most rental companies told us in Kauai the ocean breezes are so strong you don't need it, we went back and forth in deciding. We went in May and let me tell you, it does make a difference. We didn't know how good we had it until we left. We had a vacation rental directly on the ocean in Poipu and were miserable as far as the heat goes with no AC. So if you are a little more sensitive to heat it may be something to consider.

The grounds were perfect, the beach you can walk to was gorgeous and the pool area was fantastic!

Joan was easy to work with and she was extremely helpful in every way.

About Joan Bettencourt

My father in law was born and raised on Kauai and we wanted our young family to experience his slice of paradise. We started visiting the island 37 years ago and fell in love with it. It not only is a beautiful island, but a friendly island full of exploration and adventure.

Joan Bettencourt purchased this Condo in 2005

Why Joan Bettencourt chose Princeville

Kauai is magical. You will want to return time and time again. When I walked in 4221/2 for the first time 37 years ago on my honeymoon and saw Bali Hai in front of me, and I knew this was paradise. We even renewed our vows at HBR for our 25th anniversary. If you think the pictures of Kauai online are beautiful, just wait until you arrive on the North Shore of Kauai. Our staff has been working at HBR for many years and they will share their aloha.

What makes this Condo unique

The sunsets from the lanai will take your breath away. Why pay $800 a nt at the hotel next door for the same views. The lagoon style pool with the only swim up bar on Kauai overlooks Bali Hai, the mountain made famous in the movie South Pacific. HBR is one of the few condo resorts on the North Shore with beach access via a paved path. Puu Poa Beach is below and good for snorkeling and sunbathing. It is shared with the St Regis but please do not use their beach chairs. I have my own you can bring down. This is a privately owned and managed unit and you will get special attention unlike a large management company who closes their doors and turns their phones off on weekends. You will be dealing with me not some 800 number. Remember no rain no rainbows!!! Rain keeps Kauai lush and beautiful. Its what makes our island unique.

I do! On island contact: Grand Pacific Resorts. In case of emergency call the front desk to get ahold of me. It is customary in Hawaii to leave one's shoes outside the front door. Therefore it is advisable to bring a pair of indoor shoes, thongs, or slippers to wear exclusively inside the condo. I provide the first few days of supplies. TP, shampoo etc can be purchased at our resort store or Foodland Grocers in the shopping center if you need more.

The best view, clean, close to the pool, parking lot and beach! My husband and I had the best time on the island and this was an extra treat to stay here. I sometimes had to force myself to get out of the place because I couldn't get over the view. Also after exploring the island it was so nice to come back to one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. I may ask Joan where she got the mattress from because now that I'm back home, I think it is more comfortable than my own bed!! Mahalo for the stay!

                                                                        Owner's Response:

Thank you for taking the time to review HBR 4222 and I look forward to having you back for more restful sleeps.

                                                                        Joan Bettencourt

                                                                        Julie L.United States

                                                                        Hanalei Bay Resort (HBR) was a great area of the island to stay for my one week visit. We were able to spend time at Hanalei Bay Beaches, hike the Kalalau trail at Haena State Park on the North West side and then go back around to the west side and hike Waimea Canyon. HBR in the Princeville area seems a little less congested and newer than other parts of the island. While staying in Joan's unit you can utilize the kitchen and make your own food, walk 5 minutes to the lounge for dinner, or drive to many excellent restaurants within about 5 - 20 minutes. The view is outstanding from the living room and bedroom of this unit. The fans and AC worked great, the unit is very clean and well-maintained. The best part is the response from Joan with any questions or concerns you have. I would recommend staying at HBR and Joan's unit in particular. You will love to wake up to the beautiful sunrise and watch the sunset during your Kauai stay.

                                                                        We had the pleasure of staying in this unit (as well as her adjoining suite, 4221) for a short stay in October. Joan was very helpful and made the booking process easy and secure. The unit is well situated on the resort grounds; far enough away from the main pool/reception/lounge/bar building to enjoy quiet but still very close to an under-used freshwater pool, tennis courts, bbq, and beach access path. Transportation service via golf cart is available for a quick trip to the parking lot, reception, or beach; very helpful in the rain! The open-concept living area with separate bedroom provided us with both comfort and space during the day and privacy at night. A nearby grocery store and fully stocked kitchen allowed us to prepare breakfast and dinner daily. We appreciated the use of beach gear (complete with beach umbrella, chairs, snorkels, masks, fins, boogie boards) to enjoy our days outside the unit. The sunset ocean view in the evening from the large private balcony puts the cherry on top of this already perfect unit. Joan has thought of every thing any type of occupant could possibly require in this unit; from toiletries and cooking spices to rain umbrellas, hiking poles, comfortable furniture, and a rocking chair! I think I saw a waffle maker too; unbelievable. We have no complaints or suggestions for improvement. We would stay here again. Thank you.

The unit has everything you need to be considered a "home away from home", including beach chairs, cooler, snorkel and tennis gear, even a crib, etc. The kitchen is second to none in any condo I've ever stayed in, and contains anything you need to cook, as well as all of the plates, bowls, cups, silverware, and pretty much anything you would need in a kitchen. The dining and living room areas have very nice furniture, with a tropical theme and very comfortable. The bedroom is awesome, with a very comfortable king-size bed. Finally, the view is to die for!! Waking up to the sound of the birds and the beautiful emerald mountains and blue ocean in the distance is absolutely one of the best ways to wake up when on Kauai. The sunsets are truly spectacular as well. The very spacious lanai spans the living room and bedroom space, and you can relax in a nice lounge chair or regular comfortable chairs. Some of my best moments - having breakfast on the lanai with that spectacular view, and of course watching the gorgeous sunsets from the lanai. If you are looking for a spacious, comfortable, spotless, beautiful vacation home to stay in when visiting this beautiful part of the world, you will find it at this unit!

Very clean and spacious. 2 AC units, which is very nice. Everything you could possibly need during your stay, from small cooler to chairs and snorkel gear. Kitchen is fully stocked with all your cooking needs. Don't want to cook---walk over to Happy Talk and grab a bite/brew with live music nightly. Nice pool with a tropical feel. Can't wait till we can schedule another trip. Thanks Joan for sharing your little piece of paradise with us.
