About the property

2 Bedroom 2.5 Bathroom, 2-story villa, ocean/mountain views

Hanalei Bay Villa 25 stands out as a truly great vacation rental property, according to a recent guest. Other guests give similar complements. See lots of photos and take a video walk- through by going to owners' website hanaleibayvilla dot com. Since we have not signed up for online booking through vrbo, you will not be charged an 8.5% service/reservation fee. Feel free to call me directly at 2022623836.

This 2-story home is perfectly situated to take in the beauty and recreational opportunities of Kauai's north shore. Living area and half bath are upstairs; bedrooms and 2 full baths downstairs. Master bedroom has connecting bathroom. Honeymooners love the place. Whether you're into hiking and water sports, or just want to sink your toes into the beautiful sand of Kauai, it has all you need for an unforgettable vacation. This 2-story home has cathedral ceilings, 30 windows, 2 lanais, and a front porch. With an ocean view from the front door and mountain views from the rear, guests often rave about the villa's postcard setting.

Ease into each day with the songs of tropical birds while enjoying breakfast on a lanai with fabulous mountain views. Look out the front door for a spectacular view of the ocean. Walk 50 feet to the bluff overlook that is well-known for its sunset views--also a perfect vantage point for watching surfers, humpback whales (January-April), sea turtles and dolphins. The luxurious St. Regis Princeville Hotel, a 5-minute walk from the villa, features entertainment, shopping, and fine dining. Walk to 3 beaches or drive to the many gorgeous beaches on the island. The beach at the St. Regis, open to the public, is a short walk down a paved trail and offers excellent snorkeling, kayaking, people-watching and sun bathing. Enjoy sleeping to the sounds of gentle trade winds rustling through tropical palms; enjoy the splendor of glorious sunrises, sunsets, rainbows and waterfalls. Choose from several excellent nearby restaurants, or cook gourmet meals in the well-equipped kitchen. We hope you will be our guest! Are you a repeat renter? Ask about a discount.

About Kathy Chamberlain

Our permanent home is Washington DC but we love escaping to Kauai, especially in the winter. After visiting Kauai several times in the 1980's and falling in love with the north shore, we purchased our house in 1990, 2 years before hurricane Iniki destroyed many homes on Kauai, ours included. By 1995 it was rebuilt as a totally different (and oh so much better) house. It's worth the long trip from DC! We love to snorkel, bike, kayak, stand-up-paddle, walk, and just enjoy a good book while sitting under a palm tree at the beach. You will too!

Kathy Chamberlain purchased this house in 1990

Why Kathy Chamberlain chose Princeville

The north shore of Kauai is the most beautiful place in the world. We love Princeville because it is on a bluff overlooking the ocean-- flooding will never be a problem! The Hanalei Bay Villas are perfectly situated for the best ocean, bay and mountain views on the north shore. We bought Hanalei Bay Villa 25 for its views and easy access to beaches.

What makes this house unique

Ours is a stand-alone house, so renters benefit from the privacy of having a house to themselves. It is close (but not TOO close) to the luxurious St Regis Princeville Hotel, just a 5-minute walk. Our house is not on poles like most Hanalei Bay Villas, which means we can walk out the lower lanai into the back yard for easy access to the herb garden and tropical fruit trees. There is whale-watching from the front door (Jan-April), frequent rainbows over the ocean, easy sunset watching from the bluff in front of the house. Guests often comment on how comfortable, well-equipped and nicely decorated our house is.

Truly Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

This ranks up there with the the most beautiful places we have ever stayed in the world. Everything is in top shape, well thought through, and the views through windows and lanai--- and location --are tops. Right near Na Pali Coast and best beaches. We prefer the North Shore.

Perfect stay in Bali Hai

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are frequent visitors to Kauai and have been running the Kauai Marathon for 6 years straight. We always stay in Poipu for the duration of our trip and we often travel to the North Shore to enjoy some of the spectacular beaches there. This year, we decided to split our Kauai vacation by staying in Poipu for the first half and up North in Princeville for the second half. We didn't want to stay in a hotel and opted for VRBO instead. Since this was my first VRBO rental, I searched extensively for a charming home with close proximity to the beaches. The search returned many options, however, the one that I was drawn to the most was Hanalei Bay Villa #25. Upon reading positive review after positive review, I decided on #25. All the descriptions advertised in the VRBO summary are accurately represented (clean, well maintained, great customer service, great location). The house is charming with stunning views of Bali Hai. There was no need for AC as the trade winds kept a nice soft breeze throughout the home. The hosts were perfect in every way by providing us with detailed instructions from arrival to departure and a long list of great activities (including some local secrets). There was no need to rent beach chairs or umbrellas as the hosts already provided all the necessary beach ware. The house is equipped with all of the comforts from home including washer & dryer and wifi. Although we dined out every evening, #25 comes equipped with a full kitchen. We had a 5 min walk to the St Regis for a spectacular sunset dinner (highly recommended). I am extremely pleased with our VRBO decision and highly recommend Hanalei Bay Villa #25 to anyone looking for a wonderful North Shore experience conveniently located near beaches, fun activities and a short walk to an amazing sunset dinner experience. We will definatly be coming back.

Best rental experience ever!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous home in an unbelievably beautiful setting. Not only was the house comfortable and immaculately clean, it had everything we needed, plus many extras, for a fabulous stay. We used the herb garden in the back yard to supplement the extensive variety of produce at the farmers market and the uniquely delicious Kauai shrimp available at Foodland to create memorable gourmet meals. Kitchen was extremely well equipped, roomy and convenient. We enjoyed many meals on the lanai, taking in the views of mountains, lush tropical foliage, and the occasional rainbow. The king bed was magically comfortable, so we slept well every night, enjoying gentle trade winds coming through the sliding screen door and many louvered windows. The house is convenient to many north shore beaches, a couple of them walkable, the others just a short drive away. A small shopping center, including a full-size grocery store and a food court, is a convenient 2 miles away. The St. Regis hotel is a very short walk-- maybe 10 min. It has very expensive food and drink, but an unbelievable view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. Bottom line: We loved this house because it enhanced our visit to this gorgeous part of Kauai. We will definitely be back.

At home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Made all breakfasts and many dinners 'at home' on the lanai. Beautiful! And spent our days exploring & hiking or going to the beach! Love it here! And Kathy has made it easy and been so great to work with! Aloha & Mahalo!

What a wonderful way to ring in the New Year - 2017!!

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely the most well appointed, attractive and well equipped property that I have rented and I have rented more than a few. I have been spoiled by all your pots, pans, cutlery, dishes, glasses for every beverage. My son and I each like to cook so your well stocked kitchen enhanced our stay and helped us to save on meals out. The organizational skills of the owners surpassed anyone I know and made our stay a dream. I could make some New Year's resolutions based on the observations that I made of house this house is set up and guidance provided as to where everything is and how to use all the wonderful amenities that are provided. Recommendations of where to go and places to see were spot on. We snorkeled at the recommended beach and saw turtles we hadn't seen in Oahu using the snorkeling equipment provided. We were comfortable in the beach chairs and the towels provided. The décor of this house is fantastic. Either the owner has supreme taste or hired an excellent interior decorator. Every day I admired a picture or wall ornament or lampshade cover that I hadn't noticed previously. The niceties that are provided to you will not be found anywhere else - every paper product imaginable, books and movies and music and all so will cared for. Lighting was great Views are heavenly. If we hadn't been heading to the Big Island I'd have been too depressed to leave. I stayed at a rental property the week prior to Kauai and then the Hilton Waikoloa afterward. Of the three, I would return to this wonderful home in Kauai without a doubt. I hope to return to this home within a couple years, sooner if possible. Paradise does not quite fully describe it.

Fabulous Princeville Villa

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed at this villa many times and wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else on Kauai. It is perfectly located and has everything we need and more. The owners keep the place in ship shape, and every time we stay, we find a new amenity, appliance, or upgrade. We particularly like that this is a small house, not a condo where we would be sharing walls with other (possibly noisy) renters. Another advantage is the excellent cross-ventilation afforded by windows all around. We love looking at the ocean from the front door, and walking across the street to get spectacular wide angle sunset views over the ocean. We enjoy sitting on the air swing on the lower lanai, surrounded by tropical foliage. We make use of the parsley, dill, mint and chives in the herb garden. Occasionally we’ll luck out and find a ripe pineapple too! The place is comfortable, roomy, breezy, convenient, and surrounded by beauty. It feels like home.
