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.
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.
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.
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!
Dale Carlson purchased this studio in 2005
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.
My husband and I absolutely loved staying in this condo. The view is breathtaking as well as the grounds and property! It is nice to stay at a property with great amenities like a restaurant, outstanding pool, tennis courts, concierge, beach access etc. As described below, the bed is amazingly comfortable, the shower, with heads and jets from both sides, is like a massage. We could not figure out the A/C and maintenance was there in 2 minutes to help show us how. The northern part of Kauai is the most beautiful area you will ever want to see. It is truly Bali Hai! The condo is near the parking area and on the ground floor of unit, but because the elevation, has amazing views if Hanalei Bay and the Na Pali coast. Dale, the owner, is terrific...fast communication and will do anything to please his renters. You cannot go wrong at this unit. BOOK IT!!!!!
This was my first trip to Kauai, but my boyfriend had been there several times and says this is the best place he has stayed. When we first checked in, the staff told us our unit was in the most coveted building and I can see why. The view was fantastic! The bed ginormous and very comfortable and we really liked the shower with the dual shower heads. We didn't spend much time on the grounds, but the pool looked incredible along with the grass tennis courts. We did get a drink and snack at the onsite restaurant, Happy Talk. It was a great sunset while we listened to live music. The snorkels, boogie board, reef shoes, and other beach gear provided by Dale came in extremely handy and was very appreciated. Dale's welcome packet PDF on nearby attractions and restaurants was a great touch. We have already recommended this condo to friends and family and look forward to our next stay. Mahalo.
Hanalei Bay Resort is a beautifully maintained property, and the staff is friendly, aiming to please. There was no heat in the hot tub, but those things happen, and the main pool was fine.
the owner was easy to deal with and showed patience with me when I lost track of when my final payment was due. I was a little late because I hadn't checked my email. The property is as good as described and I thought the view was even better than you can tell in the picture. Very pleased. The property main pool area and bar/restaurant was close by and we enjoyed both. I only had one issue that I brought to the owner and he was very receptive to taking care of it once I made him aware. We spent a couple days in Lihue that I would have rather spent up on the north end with this property. I saw some reviews that talked about parking-it was fine. Like most places, you would get a good space sometimes and a farther away space at other times. Nothing bad though. Like I said, I think the owner does an excellent job giving an honest description of the unit. In summary, the best things were the view, large bathroom and shower, and close proximity to the pool/bar area. It is a little ways down the path to the beach but they offer golf cart rides up and down during the day.
Great time on a beautiful island. The resort was great, staff are all real friendly. The location of the room with the views is the best location at the resort, could park my car near room and go. Great bed and views of ocean from room. Would love to come back again some day and maybe try the room next to it. It has a bigger kitchen by the same owner. Overall great stay and would recommend.
I had an unsual trip as I came alone to visit a childhood friend! I stayed in four very different places on the Island, they were all unique and wonderful in their own way but I mostly enjoyed the quiet serenity and view of Dale's condo. My friend stopped by and we talked for hours. She works in a high end resort and she was particularly impressed! I hope to return to this particular unit again. Was a lovely home away from home! Perfect for a couple or someone traveling on their own. Some meals I ate at Happy Talk Restaurant, others I just bought and nearby Foodland and brought back to the condo. Mahalo Dale!!! I am very grateful!
