Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, Baths (Sleeps 12)
About Janice Leutheuser
Both my husband Fritz and myself, Janice, grew up on the east coast in Michigan and Georgia respectively. After my husband decided to start his own business and I left the airline industry to start a family, we settled in beautiful Santa Barbara, CA in 1991. We have two children in college now and an unrelenting thirst for travel!
Janice Leutheuser purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Janice Leutheuser chose Princeville
Traveling extensively for 9 years within the airline industry provided me with a great insight as to the 'special' destinations that sung to me. The north shore of Kauai kept calling upon us, thus, we returned year after year until we found our sanctuary at Hanalei Bay Resort. I can honestly say it is still getting harder and harder to leave paradise behind!
What makes this Condo unique
Tropically furnished with bamboo cathedral ceilings, a loft with 2 queen beds for added accommodations, three bedrooms with new Travertine tiled shower/tub, a fully stocked modern kitchen with granite counter top and glass/cherry cabinetry, washer/dryer, dining area seating for 8-10, large comfortable sectional sofa/chaise, and 3 private lanais all with unobstructed views of Hanalei Bay and the mountains beyond. Building is situated at the start of the paved beach path and directly across from the tennis courts, ice machine, and resort laundry facility.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Everything was perfect except for checkin. It took 15 minutes because the front desk didn’t have the reservation. It’s a good thing we had an email confirmation and our paperwork. Otherwise, the condo was absolutely perfect. And the owner even let us borrow a high chair and pack n play. This is the most beautiful area on Kauai and the resort has a wonderful pool for kids! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Thank you for your honest review of our unit and the resort. Not sure how the front desk could not pull up your reservation immediately on check in, but glad everything was resolved. My apologies for the 15 minute inconvenience after such a long flight to get to "paradise"! I totally agree that Kauai's north shore IS the most beautiful area on island and we are so happy that you found the unit to meet if not exceed your standards. Until next time, Mahalo! Janice
Gorgeous spot. Clean and we had everything we needed. Views and proximity were terrific.
We used the pool, tennis courts, and beach. The golf cart staff were very helpful transporting luggage to the unit. We didn't make it into the restaurant or pool bars because were out and about so much, and because we cooked in for come meals. Great family spot- we really enjoyed it!
Amazing View from Amazing Condo
We recently stayed in this three room condo unit (430123) and it was extremely comfortable, well stocked, and had the most amazing view of Hanalei Bay and the Napali mountains. The unit was very tastefully decorated and all the furniture and beds were very comfortable. Each unit had their own spectacular view so everyone could wake up at their own pace and enjoy the view without disturbing anyone else. The condo was well stocked in the kitchen, as well as having beach chairs, umbrellas, tennis rackets, coolers, snorkel equipment (no fins however, so bring your own), etc. The unit location was just perfect and had one of the, if not the, best views of any of condo in the complex. The complex had a great pool, swim up bar, hot tub, tennis courts everywhere, and a restaurant. The golf cart shuttle service to and from parking lot/beach/front desk was ideal for the older people in our party.
This really is prime real estate with an amazing view that you will never tire of. Next time we're in Kauai, we'll be coming back. Excellent place to vacation.
Mahalo! Our views are what sold us in purchasing our units so I am so very happy they are appreciated. The north shore of Kauai has a plethora of just outstanding views that are ever changing depending on the time of day. We strive to maintain an excellent accommodation experience for our guests and always are so grateful for guests comments post stay. Until next time...
We really loved our time at Janice's Condo
The condo was fantastic. Super clean and spacious. Reserving and corresponding with Janice was very easy. Location was beautiful. The beach view was by far my favorite of all the places we stayed during our 2 weeks in Hawaii. We had a few self imposed silly hiccups that Michelle helped us fix quickly. The resort crew was also great.
The beach was about a 10 minute walk down a path. But the resort has a golf cart that they will come and drive you to or from the beach. They always arrived timely.
The only thing I didn't enjoy was the restaurant at the resort. The food was just okay and it was pricey even for Hawaii.
Aloha! Accommodations are equally important along with the destination so I am happy to hear that you were extremely comfortable in our Kauai home. Our on island manager, Michelle, is very speedy to respond to any guests needs and resides a mere 5 minutes from the resort. Unfortunately, the restaurant operator is independent from the resort management, therefore, there is not much we can do regarding their options or pricing except to express your comments to them directly. We will do so in hopes of remedying these concerns for our guests. They do make a delicious pina colada and some signature drinks! Until next time...Janice
Great views from a place that has just about everything!
First off the views from our lanais are wonderful. This condo is a great place to spend your time when on Kauai.
The positive things we'd like to mention to other renters:
-well supplied with things you'll need
-views are wonderful
-beds are comfy
-there's space for everyone to have their alone time
A few things we think might need improving or worth mentioning:
-that maser bedroom door has to be changed...the couple in that room had no privacy and could hear every little sound. It works great when that condo is rented as a single, but not for others.
-the parking literally can be non existent...they took up huge numbers for trucks from carpet laying companies... get there early or don't get a space for the night and remember you pay a parking fee every day.
-the restaurant was closed for remodeling and probably should be mentioned to the renters.
-now this one is just me...the showers were not hot enough for us. It was OK but for those who like a HOT shower it was not hot enough.
Don't get me wrong we loved this place but I think it's worth mentioning things you should be aware of before arriving. We'd stay here again anytime.
Thanks Janice for offering your place to us...it was a pleasure to spend our first time in Hawaii at your wonderful place.
We are a large family with our kids and grand-kids. This place was perfect for us. The views from every room are breathtaking. The unit itself was very clean and well stocked and the owner was wonderful to deal with. The resort is beautiful and it is so nice to have a awesome pool and a private beach just a 5 minute walk away. This was our 9th trip to Hawaii and this is by far our favorite place we have stayed.
