Overview

About the property

Studio Condo, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This totally remodeled studio condo (Hanalei Bay Resort, Unit 3105) overlooks beautiful Bali Hai, the pearl of Kauai's North Shore. Watch the surfers on Hanalei Bay as you enjoy a leisurely breakfast sitting on teakwood chairs on the slate covered lanai, then go visit the island sights, but be sure to get back in time for the sunsets!

This studio unit is a one-of-a-kind within the complex! Accessible parking is just a few feet away from this first floor unit. The condo has been totally refurbished and nicely appointed with a modern Polynesian touch. The unobstructed view of Bali Hai is usually described by the guests as breathtaking. The beauty of the unit itself, the view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai and the accessibility and convenience of this unit make for an unparalleled combination. And it’s all within the fabulous Garden of Eden of the North Shore, the Hanalei Bay Resort. ...(NO…Please don’t stop reading, there are 3 more paragraphs of juicy information, including my cancellation policy…just click on the “More Details” link right below, OK?)

After a day of sight-seeing you might enjoy soaking in the large hot tub surrounded with travertine tile, or take a shower if that is your style. Two guests are easily accommodated in the unit. The thick pillow-topped Murphy bed assures a good night’s rest after a busy day of sightseeing. Oh, and yes, there are coolers, snorkeling gear (including two sets of the latest Full-Face masks as shown on two of my pics), and some beach toys for the little ones. Oh, and I just added an iHome® Kineta Bluetooth® FM Alarm Clock Radio and Speaker for your listening pleasure. And, something many condos don't have: a built-in washer and dryer!

This studio has a full kitchen. And, of course, all the counter tops are granite. Air conditioning is only needed once in a while, but it’s there if you need it. Check your email on the free Wi-Fi. A beautiful beach shared with the new St. Regis Hotel for great swimming and snorkeling is just a short walk away. And it’s all in close walking distance to all the fabulous HBR. Amenities like restaurant/bar/free parking very near the condo/tennis/pool. The fabulous Happy Talk lounge is open from 3-9 pm serving light but outrageously delicious meals. And perhaps best of all, The Ukulele Bar, is the ONLY swim-up pool bar on the island!

We’re so proud of an article in Hawaii Magazine about my favorite beach and the Hanalei area. Check it out at:

https://www.hawaiimagazine.com/content/video-hanalei-bay-will-have-you-packing-your-bags-kauai

And don’t forget to check out the great pictures of Hanalei Bay Resort on HBR’s Facebook page.

And for those of you who have read my reviews—good news! Yes, I have replaced the mattress. I think it is perfect, kind of firm, but nice and soft on top. I think you will like it! Secondly, I have significantly increased your options for storing your clothes and things, BUT, if you are staying more than a few days, and you like to unpack and put your then a few items in a spacious dresser, you will be disappointed.

NOTE: This is a Studio, is does NOT have a separate bedroom. It has a bathroom, a full kitchen, and a large room with a sofa, a queen-size Murphy bed, and a dining area with table and four chairs. One of the photos shows how the condo is configured.

And finally, I reluctantly need to inform you of two fees: First, the resort charges a $20/daily Resort Fee collected upon checkout, and Secondly, in case you didn’t notice it, VRBO/HomeAway charges a 5-10% Service Fee. Sorry, about these.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Your deposit is refundable if notice is given 60 days before your arrival. If less than 60 days before your arrival, it depends on my luck in re-renting the condo: If successful, you get a full refund. If I 'm partially successful, you get whatever I can collect. Yes, this is the most generous policy I have seen!

We also have another (adjoining) studio condo that sleeps two with a California king size bed and an exotic two-person shower. Check it out on VRBO 177160 or HomeAway 911447, and contact me for prices and more information on that unit, which might be available when this one is not.

About Dale Carlson

Audrey and I live in Sacramento, and spend as much time as possible in Kauai. We had a nice condo in building 2 at HBR but Audrey wanted (OK, insisted on!) a better view of the waves rolling in so we bought this unit in 2006, and have been very pleased with the view of the surf and of Bali Hai. The sellerr was just in the process of totally remodeling it, and we think he did a nice job.

Dale Carlson purchased this studio in 2005

What makes this studio unique

This unit is located very close to the parking lot and the pool, and is still very quiet and tranquil.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a beautiful resort location with everything you could need! Full kitchen, comfortable bed, and an amazing view of the mountains and ocean. It's also conveniently located to the parking lot, so you have easy access to and from the condo. We really enjoyed our stay. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because the tub/bathroom hadn't been cleaned well and there was some confusion at check-in (neither of these are the owners fault). Also, the walls are paper thin - you can hear everything from the neighbors. Luckily our neighbors were courteous, but we could hear even quiet conversations.

Love the resort. Cute unit.

  • 4 of 5

Great location within the resort. Close to parking, pool, tennis and everything. The only bummer was the sign on the dishwasher saying it was out of order. Vacations are when you don't want to do dishes. Wonderful resort amenities. The Happy Talk lounge being open is so wonderful.

Stunning views in a beautiful resort

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful resort we have stayed at. We spent 25 days in Dale's 500 sqft condo with a small kitchen and loved it. We cooked almost all meals there and even cooked for 4 on many nights. The view is magnificent. We wondered when we got there if we could get used to the small space but after about 2 days, we were sold on it. Dale was a superb host.

View of Hanalei Bay from Lanai is enough. Can't get a better view.

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast. Perfect setup for a couple or family with 1, maybe 2 small children. Its part of a very nice resort which is great for couples and really nive for children. Private beach. We cooked every night and they had most of what we needed. Dale was awesome to deal with and super nice. We couldn't of had a smoother or better stay in Kauai. Thanks Dale!! We will be back with our daughter.

The View was incredible and the staff and facilities were so wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

Dale’s condo was perfect for the two of us, we loved the patio for watching the ever changing view and the different bird visitors.

We travelled around to different beaches to snorkel, but we enjoyed the beach right here the most. We saw turtles several different days.

The kitchen had everything we needed and we were quite comfortable our whole stay.

The Resort itself was way more than we expected, the staff were all so helpful and friendly. The pool and restaurant were great.

We’re already discussing coming back.
