Overview

About the property

Side 2 of 2 Studio Aptartments Across from Beach W/ Great Ocean & Mountain Views

This spacious, newly renovated second floor unit provides unique, breathtaking views of South Pacific against the backdrop of mesmerizing, romantic sunsets behind Bali' Hai' from your front porch.

The rear balcony offers equally spectacular views of Hanalei Bay, with waterfalls gently cascading into the green lush rainforest of the world famous Na Pali Coast. Because you are above the tall tree tops, you get the sense that you are in your very own Tree House! It is the perfect place for a romantic Honeymoon, family vacation, or just a special get-away. Literally, across the street, is the perfect location to catch the seasonal whale migration and the big surf of Kauai's famed North Shore. You can take one of three paths to three different Beaches, including Hideaways Beach, Secret Beach, or the beach at Hanalei Bay at the base of The St. Regis Hotel. All offer safe snorkeling areas where you can enjoy colorful marine life with complimentary snorkel gear provided with the studio apartment. Beach chairs and beach towels are also provided to our guests. There is free off street parking steps from the front door. There is also free Wi-Fi and landline long distance telephone service to the US Mainland and Canada. There is a cable HDTV, DVD player, and CD player.

This unit has recently been completely renovated with the assistance of a professional decorator and designer to give it that genuine old Hawaiian look that is clean and inviting. The 20' ceilings give a sense of spacious openness typical of traditional Polynesian homes. My most recent addition is a brand new 14" Plush Pillow Top Queen Mattress, with 4" of Pillow Top for a well-deserved good night's sleep after a day of island activities.

The studio has a fully equipped kitchenette with a full-size refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee pot, blender, toaster, and place settings for four guests. For the convenience of guest staying several days, I recently installed a small combo washer/dryer unit in the bathroom closet. It is designed for light loads only, and is quiet and clean. Because it is NOT vented, please allow anywhere between 2 to 3 hours drying time. You can set it for Wash Cycle AND Dry Cycle at one time, and simply leave for the day as it will automatically switch from "Wash" to "Dry" on its own. An Instructional Sheet is taped to the top of the unit itself.

The bathroom has also been completely modernized with new granite tile, cabinetry, granite counter tops, and a vessel sink. A hair dryer, iron, and ironing board is also provided.

This unit sleeps up to four guests with a queen bed (with the new pillow top mattress) and a queen sleeper sofa. The unit has a window AC unit as well as two new remote control ceiling fans for those rare warm days.

Do you need more room? Please see my HomeAway Property #253851 for Side 1 of this duplex which can sleep an additional six guests. Side 1 is a larger unit with a loft. It has a FULL kitchen has been recently remodeled with all new modern major appliances, cabinets, granite counter tops, deep well sink with a garbage disposal, and other convenient amenities. The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare meals. There is a new stackable washer/dryer behind closed doors.

This unit sleeps up to six guests with a king bed, a queen sleeper sofa, and two twin beds in the loft area which is easily accessible with a newly designed staircase. The unit has window AC unit as well as two new remote control ceiling fans for those rare warm days. Side 1 rents for $175.00 per night, plus applicable tax of 13.42% and a Maid Service Cleaning fee of $135.00.

You can rent just one side or both, depending on the number of guest in your party. I offer a special "Combo" rate for those guest that choose to rent BOTH Sides 1 & 2.

Gentle, cool trade winds off the South Pacific, complimented with your private views of the Mountains, Bali’ Hai’, and Hanalei Bay will leave you with lasting memories of The Garden Isle. Come and allow yourself to be pampered in what is truly Paradise.

As a seasoned traveler myself, the condo has been specially appointed with every amenity and convenience to make your vacation truly stress free. No unnecessary trips to the store to buy things for your stay. All is provided, just bring your sunscreen and Mai Tai mix.

Of the dozens of countries and hundreds of towns and villages I have traveled to in the world, none compares to the sheer natural beauty of the North Shore of Kauai. Come to relax…and be pampered…you deserve it!

About Jim Nicholas

Originally from Philadelphia, followed by Law School in Chicago, I have lived in sunny Florida for the past 31 years, and have been blessed with the opportunity to travel the world many times over, and although I have experienced, first hand, the beauty and adventure of many foreign lands, nothing in my travels compares to the North Shore of Kauai. It is, by far, the most beautiful, exotic, and romantic place on earth...a place where the landscape seems almost unreal...a place where one can truly find a piece of Heaven, right here on earth.

Jim Nicholas purchased this studio in 2009

Why Jim Nicholas chose Kauai

Hale Moi is conveniently located directly across from Hideaways Beach and the whale watching area...a place to enjoy the spectacular sunsets behind Bali Hi'. This second floor duplex is fully equipped with all the amenities and conveniences of modern living, nestled between the ocean and mountains, with full vistas of both. Truly, the best of both worlds.

What makes this studio unique

The unit was recently completely remodeled with all new bathroom tile, cabinets, vessel sink, a compact washer/dryer in the bathroom closet, a fully equipped Kitchenette with a full size Frig/Frezer, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, blender, and a Wet Bar with a garbage disposal. Brand new Pillow Top Queen Size mattress for a good nights sleep after a full day of exploring The Garden Island.

Don't hesitate! This is a GEM!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a week's stay in this lovely condo and found it to be a (not so hidden) gem. This was my 12th visit to Kauai and I prefer to stay in Princeville which is a great location to use as your "hub", venturing out from there. This condo's location is superb, with gorgeous ocean and jungle/mountain views from both the front and back lanai. You can pour yourself a glass of wine and walk right across the street to view spectacular sunsets each evening from atop the cliffs. The condo is also within easy walking distance to the St. Regis as well as the Hanalei Bay Resort, both of which have fantastic dining options. As for the condo itself, I could not have been happier. It was very clean, fresh smelling (no moldy smell, which can be an issue on island), updated, well-equipped and tastefully decorated. The air conditioner works well to cool the condo quickly upon returning from your day out and there is a dehumidifier for extra humid times. The best part? I have NEVER EVER slept so well (away from home) in my entire traveling history. That mattress is absolutely incredible and I will be emailing the owner, Jim, to inquire about the brand/model! Speaking of Jim, I cannot say enough good things about him as well. From the first inquiry, through the visit, I found Jim to be very friendly, responsive and accommodating. In particular, I had a late flight out on my last day and he quite generously allowed me a late check out that day. His kind gesture gave me the opportunity to squeeze in some more fun that last day without having to lug my suitcases around with me.

If you are looking for a great value in accommodations on Kauai, this is it. Do not hesitate booking this unit. You won't be disappointed. Mahalo and much aloha to Jim for such a fantastic place to stay on this visit!

So THAT's why they call it "Paradise"!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo in an incredible location. Loved the snorkeling equipment, beach chairs, towels and umbrella. Slept so great in that bed that I'm getting a new mattress for home. I really liked having A/C. And Jim's list of suggested things to do in the area was right on the mark. It was great to have local info. Used the condo phone number for avg. 20% discounted groceries. The only downside was having to leave. I'll keep this short by saying: Everything in Jim's description of the condo and location was true.

Wonderful location! Enjoyed watching the play of sun and clouds on the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The studio condo met and exceeded our expectations, as well providing a convenient location to explore the north side of Kauai. We enjoyed morning coffee on the deck watching the sunrise play on the mountain mist, including several rainbows. Across the street was the nightly gathering for sunset, where we met interesting neighbors.

The studio condo is nicely furnished and well equipped to meet our needs for the week's stay. The beach access, walking paths, and shopping for the basics were very convenient. Brud and Marjie

Very nice studio condo

  • 5 of 5

Place is great for a couple or even an extra kid, deck has amazing views and location was awesome. Walk to restaurants and hike in only beaches, and a quick drive to princeville center with grocery and several more dining options.

Great home base for exploring the North Shore

  • 4 of 5

The condo is economical and well appointed, with great views. The owner is very responsive and helpful. We were very comfortable there. My only complaint would be noise levels in the adjoining units.

Hale Moi is uniquely located across the street from South Pacific and nearby Bali Hai against the backdrop of the famous Hanalei Bay (home of 'Puff the Magic Dragon'), only steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches on earth. The North Shore of Kauai is the very reason it's called The Garden Isle.

Other Activities: kayaking, boating, parasailing, wildlife viewing, paddle-boarding, and health/beauty spa.

Golf: The newly re-designed Makai Golf Course is located just behind the condo and the Princeville Golf course is nearby. The condo is also located just a few steps from the entrance to the newly remodeled St. Regis Hotel (formerly the Princeville Hotel) where you can enjoy fine dining, cocktails at the Bali Hai Piano Bar, and pool area.
