This place was great for our family of five adults. We loved having the upstairs separate from the bedrooms. The location was great and Hideaways Beach was an easy walk (and we saw a turtle while snorkeling there!). Even among the other condos at Hanalei Bay Villas, this one had a beautiful views out front and out back. The back decks always had a nice breeze and sitting out there was a welcome break from the heat! The house had good ventilation to let the breezes in and plenty of fans in all the rooms. <br />
The kitchen has all necessities; we used the washer and dryer several times; they have snorkeling gear, beach towels and beach chairs. <br />
We would definitely stay here again. <br />
Great House and Location
We stayed at this property for a week and loved it. The location was close to a grocery store, walking distance to a beach*, a short drive to Hanalei, and was a gathering place to watch the sunset.
The house services was great. We were greeted with a welcome package for our vacation celebration. They provided extra fans upon request (no air conditioning) and did our laundry (our washer/dryer was broken). The house was equipped with snorkeling and beach gear. The kitchen and bathrooms could use some updating but were functional. The views from the front and back were spectacular! I would recommend this place
Perfect house for us
The mountain view is awesome. House was very comfortable, clean and functional. A short hike to Hideaways Beach. We loved the location since it allowed us to be close to everything on the beautiful north coast. And sunset across the road every day. It was our home away from home.
Amazing Kauai Home
We had a wonderful six day stay in this beautiful Kauai home.
Beautiful home and location
Just about to everything from booking to stay to quality of house, kitchen, bathroom etc - absolutely no issues
I've been to Kauai four times in my life and this last visit was stellar due in no small part to this property. The location is fantastic! With lush rainforests out back and the ocean across the street out front you're able to enjoy it all from this villa. This property allows you to be in nature while at the same time enjoying nice amenities - win!
The only real drawback is that there's no direct beach access except for a difficult trail within walking distance, but there are plenty of beaches within a few miles that you can drive to. This would be true for the majority of properties in the North Side due to the island terrain, so nothing against this property in that regard.
There's no A/C, but there is great cross-ventilation due to all the windows and we didn't miss A/C at all. That said, in order to enjoy the cross-ventilation you need to have the windows open and you can hear people in neighboring villas fairly easily. Also, maintenance on the golf course across the canyon starts at 5:45 am every day (even the Memorial Day holiday)! I was surprised at that.
Then, there are the roosters! I happen to love them, but my hubby and in-laws do not. They crow at all hours so just be prepared for that (again, this is an island characteristic, not due to this property). The wildlife sounds were so soothing overall that we became incredibly relaxed over the week we were there, and that was due to the stellar location and amenities of the unit.
There are a couple of improvements that could be made to the unit. The couch looks comfortable but isn't supportive at all and everyone ends up sinking way in - not great. The disposal in the kitchen sounds awful, and the master bathroom has some water damage that needs to be addressed, but nothing was broken or required attention for us to enjoy ourselves.
If it wasn't for the stellar location and layout of this property our visit wouldn't have been nearly as good as it was. It was by far the best place we've stayed at on Kauai - we loved it!
Bottom Line: We will be back!
Thank you for leaving such a thorough review! The downstairs flooring is being replaced, the couch is fairly new, and we have scheduled maintenance to look at the disposal. We hope to see you again!
