Overview

About the property

Studio condo with one California King bed, Large Bathroom, Sleeps two+,

This totally remodeled studio condo (Hanalei Bay Resort, Unit 3106) overlooks beautiful Bali Hai, the pearl of Kauai’s North Shore. Watch the surfers on Hanalei Bay as you enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the slate covered lanai, then go visit the island sights, but be sure to get back in time for the sunsets! This studio condo is a one-of-a-kind within the complex! Accessible, and free, parking is just a few feet away from this first floor unit. The unit 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 an unparalleled combination. And it’s all within the fabulous Garden of Eden of the north shore, the Hanalei Bay Resort.

And, yes, the condo has various snorkel gear and some beach toys for the little ones, and if you need more beach chairs or gear, just rent them from the pool shop and send me the bill. Oh, and i just added an iHome® Kineta Bluetooth® FM Alarm Clock Radio and Speaker...(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?)

Two guests are easily accommodated in the unit. Since you’re sleeping on the king-size custom-made Indonesian “Pineapple” bed, you can actually watch the surfers on Hanalei Bay for awhile before getting up. You might even want to stretch out on the rattan lounge chair in the bedroom while you re-read a little Michener, Theroux—or even Crichton, one of our (now late) “locals” before turning in, or check your email on the free internet. (I was tempted to say the unit sleeps three because a child could sleep on that lounge chair.) Please browse the floor plan layout on one of the photos, and let me know if you have any questions.

After a day of sight-seeing you will enjoy the two-person, six-jet shower with a window facing Bali Hai, which includes a switch that, almost magically, makes the window become opaque for the shy!--oops, it just quit working, lets hope I can get it fixed quickly:)).

Air conditioning is only needed once in a while, but it’s there if you need it.

A beautiful beach shared with the St Regis Hotel for great swimming and snorkeling is just a short 10-minute walk away down the hill past the tennis courts. And it’s all in close walking distance to all the fabulous HBR amenities like restaurant/bar/free parking near the condo/tennis/pool.

NOTE: This is NOT a one-bedroom condo with a separate bedroom. It is one large sleeping room with a lounge chair, a table and two small chairs, two bed stands, an entertainment center and, a mini-kitchen between the bedroom and the bathroom.

Note 2: This bedroom unit includes a coffee maker, toaster, microwave, and a mini-fridge for your convenience. And, of course, there are plates, silver, glasses and cups. Therefore, this is NOT a full-kitchen, please do not rent this condo if you plan on cooking.

Note 3: 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.

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.

FYI..

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 am able tocollect. Yes, this is the most generous policy I have seen!

We also have another (adjoining) studio condo that sleeps two with a full kitchen and Jacuzzi hot tub. Check it out at VRBO 237539 and contact me for prices and more information on that unit, which might be available when this one is not.

About Dale Carlson

Hi

My wife, Audrey, and I are up here in Sacramento, CA --when we're not in Kauai, which is never enough for Audrey, especially during the chilly rains we get here in Northern California. We've owned this property since it was totally refurbished in 2006. Before that we owned a unit in building #2, which was nice but the third floor became too much for Audrey and, more importantly, she couldn't see enough WATER, so we've fixed that problem. And now she's happy, and it doesn't get any better than that!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our second stay at Hanalei Bay Resort Room #3106 and enjoyed it again. Clean and great customer service. You can't go wrong for location in Princeville. Room amenities of full size coffee pot, toaster, blender, microwave and small refrigerator allowed us to have breakfast and snacks as wanted. Cooler & snorkel gear were great, beach umbrellas were in need of repair tho. Awesome shower and plenty of towels, but disappointed mirror/window in shower was not working this time as outside view from bathroom is a nice touch. Cleaning supplies provided, would have like to have had paper towels available tho. Bed and A/C made sleeping comfortable, rooster wake up call is provided. Loved the walk out patio and chairs to take in the views, close to pool, and the first floor is nice to walk into after a full day of fun. Would stay again and recommend this room & resort, especially now that the Happy Talk Bar/Restaurant is open.

Incredible place--I hated to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time in this condo. Not only is the view breathtaking, but the condo is very cozy yet fully equipped. And the resort is wonderful, the staff is most helpful in every way. I especially loved the pool and jacuzzi, and the food is just excellent at the outdoor bar and cafe, the Happy Talk Lounge! We'll definitely be back!

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this room. It has excellent views just like the picture shown and the bed was very comfortable. The owner was very helpful since the time we booked with all the information we needed. One advantage was the parking was very close to the room. We will definitely come back and stay there again.
