Fall in love with Hanalei Bay Resort - like we did. Close your eyes and imagine the original Hawaii - swaying palm trees, rushing waterfalls, a tropical paradise. Visit Hanalei Bay Resort, experience paradise and the Aloha Spirit will wash over you like the warm waters of the Pacific.

Hanalei Bay Resort’s 22 acres of lush grounds, pools, and waterfalls could be mistaken for Eden. Everywhere you turn there are stunning views of thousand-foot tall waterfalls set against the green mountains, or magnificent panoramas of Hanalei Bay and the blue Pacific. Watch the sun set behind Bali Hai mountain of South Pacific fame.

Hanalei Bay Resort Swimming Pool Rated One of Ten Best by Fodor's:

'...one of the best on Kauai, with authentic lava-rock waterfalls, an open-air hot tub, and a kid-friendly sand 'beach'....what really sets it apart is the stunning view of Hanalei Bay and the Napali Coast...'

Play golf at a world class course in nearby in Princeville.

A half-hour drive to the end of the road takes you to Ke'e Beach where snorkelers can mingle with multi-colored fish and Green Turtles. Hikers revel in the sights, sounds, and smells of the rain forest, and marvel at the incredible coastal and mountain views of the rugged Napali Coast Trail which winds its way along the cliffs above the azure Pacific.

Enjoy a game of tennis and/or take a lesson from our tennis pro from the renowned Peter Burwash International organization.

GUEST COMMENTS:

"Aloha! We had a WONDERFUL time on Kauai and the condo was just great! One doesn't think the murphy wallbed is going to be comfortable, but it really was - slept like logs. My husband and I haven't been away since our first son was born 13 years ago - it was simply delightful to be together and lounge on the lanai with the lovely mountain view. Thanks so much; it was truly a great vacation." -- Denise, March 2016.

"Thank you so much for letting us stay in your condo. It is a wonderful place and we enjoyed it immensely. We loved it." -- William and Laura, March 2016

"If you want to experience Hawaii this is the place for you - it's the real thing! We stayed in #1105; perfect location - close to the lobby, pool, parking lot, hot tub and Happy Talk bar/lounge - which has excellent food/great live music. The mountain view is awesome; I loved it! You can even get a golf cart ride down to the beach where you can snorkel, surf, paddle board. The staff was excellent and very friendly! Great place for a great price! This part of Kauai is tropical and by far the most beautiful of all the islands. Plenty of scenery and activities! The condo has everything you need!" -- Pat, February, 2016.

"The condo was just perfect for us. Especially after spending four nights in a hotel room on the Big Island, the kitchen and living room area was a refreshing change. Being on the ground floor was very convenient. The grounds are very well kept. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The condo was stocked with beach equipment which was useful. All in all a very nice condo to rent." -- Ryan, September, 2015.

"This condo was great, my husband and I were extremely pleased with the location, furnishings of the studio, and the view! We stayed in the Studio Unit which was probably the most conveniently located condo on the property. The site photos do not do justice to the beautiful view. Although at ground level, you still get a beautiful view of the greenery, trees, and mountains. It's steps away from parking so you don't have to lug all your stuff around the property, and it's right around the corner from the pools and lobby. We absolutely loved having breakfast out on the lanai and watching the view every morning. The document that John sends with all the tips/advice on things to do in the area was helpful. John was a pleasure to rent from, he was very responsive. Don't be worried about the Murphy wallbed either, it's actually very comfortable. I have already recommended this place to everyone I have spoken to." -- Ani, May 2015.

'We really enjoyed our stay at HBR. It was a treat to stay on the ground floor with a wide lawn in front. Sitting on the lanai we enjoyed the wonderful landscaping.' – L.G., October, 2013.

'Just wanted to take a moment to write about my recent stay in your condo [unit 1105]. Everything was great. The Hanalei Bay Resort staff is very friendly. The unit was nice and clean and in a great location. I like that it's on the bottom floor, and near the pool. It's nice that you don't have to walk forever to get to the unit.' – S.L., September, 2013.

'Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our stay. You must have been one of the early buyers because the location was perfect!!! So what if we couldn't see the water - the hills and flowers were gorgeous! We loved the way the light and the clouds played on the distant hills. And as seniors what a blessing to park right outside, and have such a quick walk to pool, spa and WiFi. Thanks again. I'm sure we'll be back! Janet A. February 2011.

'Brian & I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in Kauai. The Island is amazing & will forever remain a special place in our hearts, as does unit 1106 Hanalei Bay Resort. We would not hesitate to book with you on our next visit.' -- Marlene K., April 2010

'Mahalo for the use of your wonderful condo. Very pretty and so comfortable...and convenient! Our stay was totally relaxing and peaceful. Everything we could have hoped for. You blessed us. Aloha!' -- Donna P., February 2009

'We stayed in 1106 7/24 - 7/30. We absolutely LOVED IT! I can't wait to come back and hope we can reserve this room again! The mattress was AWESOME! I slept like a baby! see you next year...HOPEFULLY!' -- Steve and Robyn, July 2009.

About John and Susan

John and Susan reside in San Diego where John is a writer and Susan is a healthcare provider.

John and Susan purchased this condo in 2007

Why John and Susan chose Kauai

Answer is simple - Where else can one feel so alive but on the North Shore of Kauai and at Hanalei Bay Resort?

What makes this condo unique

Being only a short walk from the beach, lagoon-shaped pool, and award winning hot-tub encourages us to swim, relax on a daily basis. We love the view of mountain waterfalls from our lanais. In the event of a rain shower it's great to be able to park the car immediately outside of the condo. In many respects, our first floor condo in the Hibiscus Building is one of the best-situated units at HBR.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I came to Kauai for a friend's wedding, which was held at another resort. Upon seeing where I was staying, my friend wished she had booked her wedding at Hanalei Bay Resort. I have nothing to say but great things about your condo and about the resort. The location/proximity to the pool, front desk, and Happy Talk Lounge was perfect. The pool was the most beautiful pool I have ever seen. The resort grounds, walk to the beach, and the beach (Pu'u Poa) were outstanding. I would definitely stay at your condo and at the resort again!

Small gem in the middle of Princeville.

  • 5 of 5

The Hanalei Bay Resort has over 12, 3 floors apartment complex surrounding a large pool, 8 tennis court and wonderful garden located near the Makai golf course and the St. Regis Princeville Resort. Once check in, we walked to studio #1105 (1st floor) which is located in one of the nearest complex to the lobby. The parking is feet away from the front door. We found ourselves in one of the best condo in the resort. Once on the lanai, spectacular view of the mountain, garden, first class seating for the early morning coffee to late night glass of wine watching and listening to birds show all day. The condo was bigger than expected. We decided to leave the murphy's bed down all the time. We made sure to advise the owner that whoever cleaned the condo did an awesome job. The pool located 80 feet from the condo had beautiful falls, small beach area for family, hot tub and more. Small renovation was being done on the northwest part of the pool but we never saw anybody working. The 10 minutes’ walk to the nice beach was great for the nature, view and exercise. This resort is professionally maintained by friendly staff. The experience dealing with the owner (John) was wonderful. We would not hesitate to recommend this resort.

Best Deal In Kauai

  • 5 of 5

This condo and resort is the best deal in Kauai. The condo owners are wonderful and they provide lots of helpful information about activities on the island, and they are exceptionally caring and want to ensure that you have a great time on your trip. The condo has a nice queen sized murphy bed, big couch, dining table and kitchen. It also has a big bathroom with separate room for shower and toilet.......plenty of room to get ready for anything. The location is perfect. Ground floor, right near parking, right near the pool and the lobby, with a back porch on a huge grassy area looking out at the mountains......and plenty of birds and roosters running around. All in all, this has to be the best deal on the island. The resort folks are wonderful as well, and the new bar is beautiful. There are tons of photo-worthy views from all over the resort, and the walk down to the beach is not to be missed......it's amazing. And the beach is amazing as well......make sure to head left down the beach towards Hanalei.......you won't believe how gorgeous the walk is.............

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The stay at your condo and Hanalei Bay Resort in general was wonderful! The location/proximity to the pool, front desk and restaurant is perfect. The pool was the most beautiful pool I have ever seen and the entire property, the walk to the beach and the beach itself were outstanding!

I came to Hawaii for a friend’s wedding which she held at different resort. Upon seeing where I was staying, they wish they had booked the wedding at Hanalei Bay Resort! I have nothing but great things to say about

your condo and the resort, I would definitely stay there again!

True value for money, comfortable and affordable

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased with the unit, and it was exactly as described, and as expected. It suited our needs, contained the basic necessities for 2, was clean, well kept, and we certainly would consider it next visit!

It was good value and in a great location within the property! We enjoyed a quiet, relaxing stay.

John and Susan were good to deal with, and very interested in comments and feedback.

I would not recommend this room

  • 2 of 5

Although the resort itself is absolutely beautiful, our room was a total patch job. We were most disappointed not to have a proper bed and also to find a cockroach in the kitchen.

Owner's Response: Aloha Liane, We are sorry to hear that your stay in our newly refurbished Studio Unit did not meet your expectations. We wish you would have contacted us during your stay – or thereafter, when we solicited feedback from you - so that we would have had the opportunity to correct any issues and understand the comments you made in your review. It is unclear to us what you mean by “room was a patch job”. Within the last few months, our 450 sq.ft. Studio Unit has been re-furbished with new carpet, new paint throughout, and a new air-conditioning unit. In regards to your complaint that our Studio Unit does not have a “proper bed” – we clearly advertise the Studio Unit as having a Murphy style wallbed. Additionally, there are pictures of the wallbed in our VRBO ad. Indeed, not only is our Studio advertised in VRBO as having a wallbed, but in the initial letter we sent you before you rented from us we also describe the wallbed. You asked no questions about the wallbed prior to renting our Studio Unit. Had you questioned it’s comfort we would have encouraged you to consider renting our Bedroom Unit – or perhaps our entire condo. Please note: the Murphy wallbed mattress is less than two years old. We specifically bought a top-line mattress to ensure the comfort of our guests to the greatest degree possible. Kauai is a tropical climate; this implies there will be insects of all types. From the Information Guide we sent you (and we send all our guests): “the tropical climate of Kauai is host to a number of household pests–for any pest control issues, please contact our housekeeper or us”. Additionally, in our rental agreement we also encourage guests to contact us or our housekeeper with any housekeeping-related issues (including insects). Had you notified our housekeeper or us during your stay that there was an insect in the unit, you would have received immediate attention. We do everything we can to minimize the presence of insects, including contracting with a pest control company that comes quarterly-but even these specialists cannot guarantee their work will leave a residence insect-free. We adore Hanalei Bay Resort; you commented “it is absolutely beautiful”. Our goal in maintaining ownership at the resort is to share the resort’s magnificence at a very affordable price to our guests – as we did you. Again, we are sorry to hear that our newly refurbished Studio Unit did not meet your expectations. Mahalo, John and Susan
