Studio 1-Bath Garden View Condo- Sleeps 4
What an enchanting view!
The view from the Condo's porch was like looking into a magnificent jungle. It felt very private...until neighbor's arrived. It is a little noisy...when a family is next door. The amenities were wonderful...thank you for the beach chairs,snorkles, fins, blender and what a wonderful treat that previous guests donated books to the closet. The access to the beach was a small walk and a very beautiful section... We appreciated Mai Tai Monday at the pool area and felt it was a very nice event! If I had any suggestions I would mention to add more washcloths in the bathroom..(we only had one). Plenty of towels but only one washcloth? Also the porch furniture seems to be getting a bit worn (specifically cushions).
Great apartment. It has everything you need and more. Beautiful view and close to the pool. We really enjoyed our stay in condo 1525!
Amazing View of Kauai
We so enjoyed our stay at the Condo #1525 in the Hanalei Bay Resort. The Condo was beautiful and well stocked. We enjoyed the beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, and beach umbrellas that we found in the closet. The view from the balcony was unbelievable. The balcony faced inland and the mountain are so beautiful We could have just stayed on the balcony for the whole day. The birds and flowers made the experiecne even better. The only problem we had was the little black ants on the kitchen counters every day and green ants in the Condo. We loved staying in this Condo. We would recommend this Condo to anyone who wants to really experence the beauty of Kauai.
Garden Isle Vacay
Great place for your value. Quite condo that easily accessible from the parking lot. Close to a private beach on Hanalei Bay. Golf course nearby. Quite area of Princeville.
Condo was great
Condo worked great for our week long stay. It has everything that we needed. It is convenient to the nice quiet beach that had nice shade trees. It is also easy to hit the road and visit the rest of the island.
Great view, no closet space
The best thing about this tiny condo is the deck and the green view from the deck. The worst thing is that one of the closets is full of the owner's stuff and is locked. The other closet is unlocked but full of stuff. That meant that we had to live out of our suitcases and put them on the couch. The kitchen was super small, smaller than the cottage where we stayed in Poipu. I did enjoy the pool and Jacuzzi at the resort, the golf carts to the beach, the beach, and the view from the ST Regis bar next door. You must have drinks and watch the sunset from the St. Regis!
A fantastic value!
I was making my travel plans a bit late, only a month before, and was having a hard time finding accomodations on the inexpensive side. Aloha Condo's description online said they were under construction and therefore prices were reduced. I was apprehensive about the contruction but the price was really right , $69 a night, so I called Kristen and when she said the contstruction was very unobtrusive I went ahead and booked it keeping my fingers crossed that it wouldnt be a dump. Really, the last time I paid so little was for a Super 8 Motel and "no frills" doesn't begin to describe that experience. Our Condo , unit 1525, was perfect! It was beautiful with an awesome view of the mountains, a fully equipped kitchen, beach supplies ,and though there were only two of us, it sleeps four.It was quiet and just a short walk on a paved walkway to the beach! One of the ammenities is that a bellman is available should you ever need a golfcart ride around the complex or to or from the beach.Ryan and Uncle Bill were especially gracious. There are tennis courts and a lovely lagoon style pool that we never used , but just because we love the ocean.We did want to use the Jacuzzi but unfortunately the jets weren't working. I did not see any construction happening but that may be because they are working on the inside. Still, there was no construction noise. It will be nice when the restaurant and fitness room are available again, but we really didn't miss it. The condo is in Princeville but easily accessible to Hanalei which was one of our favorite spots, but all of Kauai that we saw was breathtaking.
Great birthday stay: Thank You 1525
Condo 1525 is incredible!! When my boyfriend and I walked into the room we were amazed to be staying in such a beautiful room for such a great price. We were supprised to see a full kitchen with utensils and appliances. The condo really did feel like a home away from home and we were very sad when our four days were up and we had to leave. It was a great way to spend a 41st birthday on the island of Kauai. Thanks you and very much recommend this condo to anyone looking to spend time on the north side of Kaua'i. P.S.: we love the jacuzzi : )
A very relaxing, easy holiday - everything we needed, more than
This condo was perfect for our family of 3. It was actually roomier than we had expected and Oh, so comfortable and quiet!! I don't think we have all slept that well in ages! Everything we needed was provided and it really felt like a home-base. The pool and hot tub never seemed crowded and were awesome to look forward to at the end of a days' exploration around the island. We loved the Foodland at Princeville and really appreciated the "locals card" we received with our condo key. They did decide to cut the jungle down on day 2 of our stay to increase the view and our daughter was sad to see the forest go, but we understand there's never a good time to do these things. It didn't deter the birds from visiting us on the lanai each morning. I have been missing coffee on the lanai every day since returning! Thanks also for the gifts upon arrival - that was a lovely surprise. We used the beach bag every day on the trip!
Great Location. Low Price
Not fancy, but considering the price this studio is a good deal. The balcony is exposed to the morning sun which is great for an outdoor breakfast. I really wish internet connection was WiFi and complimentary, or at least a reasonable price. At least there is free WiFi at the Princeville shopping center.
A great week in Kauai
Kristen told me the view from Hanalei Bay Resort were the best on the island and we were very impressed! Even though the restaurant has burned down the resort is very well kept up. The foliage is beautiful. Thanks for the great accommodations Kristen, SueEllen Illinois
Love Hanalei Bay!
1525 is a beautifully located condo at Hanalei Bay Resort. The room was perfect for 2 adults with their 6year old twin boys! Very clean and roomy!
Hanelei Bay Resort
Condo was equipped with everything we needed, including beach supplies! The view was amazing! The TV was large and the decor was inviting. Exceeded my expectations!
Hanalei Bay Resort Condo 1525
Private setting that has a great garden view. Love the morning sun for breakfast on the lanai. Close to pool and relatively close to parking lot if you go through the lobby. Very clean, and we thought the gift bag with chocolates and cookies was a very nice touch. Love the beach chairs.
Steps away from paradise
My husband and I frequent Kauai as we are moving there this summer. I used to live in Oahu, and know the in's and out's of what to expect when staying on an Island. I came across this studio and it looked like it would be the perfect fit for us and our 1 year old daughter. It was a small unit, only because there is a lot of un-necessary large furniture in the room. (The huge table and chairs) I think with some re-arranging of some furniture, the place will look and feel much bigger. They were so kind and left us a pack n play crib for our daughter to sleep in, and a high chair. It was perfect! The view was beautiful, the condo was fully stocked with everything we needed, and more. The staff at the resort were kind and very helpful. The pool was beautiful and a lot of fun and the jacuzzi was one of the most relaxing jacuzzis we have been in. The rides to and from the studio was very nice and was a god-send with groceries and a sleeping baby!! The BBQ guy by the pool was awesome and the food was yummy. Too bad there is not a bar, would make this place stellar. **My only complaint was that the studio could have been much cleaner. As soon as we walked in, we smelled mildew and a musty smell. We opened the sliding glass doors to get some air in, but it didn't help. It just didn't feel or smell like a freshly cleaned room. By the 3rd night, the smell was still there, and our 2 friends who came over for a BBQ commented on the smell. I couldn't handle it anymore, I went to market to get air fresheners! (Not cheap) We visited our friends' condo on the same property, and their room did not have this smell at all and felt a lot cleaner. Don't get me wrong, we loved staying here, and we will stay at Hanalei Bay Resort when we return, but whatever cleaning service is used on the condo, I would make sure they are doing 100 bucks worth of work as that is about how much we had to pay for a cleaning fee. A fresh, clean smell/feel would have made this a perfect stay!
Vancouver Islanders Enjoying the Comforts of Hanelai Bay Resort
The condo was comfortable, the fully equipped kitchen added to the enjoyment of the stay, the location in the resort made for easy access to the condo, to the beach at Hanelai Bay and the services of the resort.
A great Value on the North Side
As my wife and I were planning on backpacking the Kalalau Trail for 4 of our 9 days on Kauai, we wanted to stay on the North end of the island. We enjoy hangin' out in Hanalei and at Hanalei Bay as well. We found HBR #1525 to be a very unique value for a condo. It is a Studio setup but has a full kitchen. It is extremely comfortable and clean and up to date. All beach equipment is supplied, wonderful kitchen supplies. For the daily/weekly rate it is indeed a great find. The resort itself is also very nice. Great pool/jacuzzi area. Good service for what little is offered there right now. Our only real complaint about this particular condo was the lack of drawer space for clothes. Other than that, perfect in every way.
Aloha! We will be purchasing new dresser drawers for this unit very soon!
The unit is very nice & the price is good, has a nice view of the forest, lots of birds close to the pool & jacuzzi. only minor drawback is the parking situation. We had to park in the loading dock/maintenance workers area. but this was no problem for us, some may not feel comfortable. there is other parking available but its a distance. the only other problem we encountered was the lack of lighting in the parking area & had to get help to find our unit (we arrived at 9 p.m.) however there is good enough lighting once you know the layout of the property & the paths are all lit up. Overall it was a great value for the quality of resort this unit is in, very beautiful. The unit itself was well stocked with everthing we needed for cooking & bathing etc. Bed was very comfortable TV was good w/ cable. remote control air conditioning was very convienent. early the next morning of our stay we found a nice little gift bag with candies/cookies beach bags etc. this made us feel welcome & appreciated. mahalo
Very nice condo
The kitchen circuit breaker was out the first day/night until maintenance came the next day to reset (three times). After that, no problems. I believe they put an order to replace the resort's electrical circuit breaker. No refrigerator the first day/night. Ice cooler used so food was okay. Ice machine and BBQ grill is a walk farther than one would have liked. Very comfortable bed. Soft towels, Clean bathroom. Great Vizio flat screen TV. Beach chairs are very handy. Very clean except we had scout ants on the counter with no food and killed to roaches by the door. But bugs are part of Kaua'i I suppose. Kitchen items well supplied although we did not cook other than toast and coffee. Ac worked very well. But did not use much and ceiling fan on low was sufficient. Wished there was free internet. Recommend exterminator to rid ants and roaches.
Condo in paradise
My wife and I have been going to the north shore of Kauai for several years now and can't imagine a location more beautiful. You can tell this condo has recently been redone and has all the amenities (new carpet and furniture, big flat-screen tv w/ DVD, etc.). Pretty comfy bed too. The kitchen area isn't big, but is well equipped - we cooked at least a half-dozen meals in it and also took advantage of the outdoor bbq's the resort has. Kauai has so much delicious local fish and vegetables it's a pleasure to cook there. It often rains late at night and when you wake up this condo has a beautiful view of the mountains with waterfalls galore. There's a nice lanai (where we'd eat breakfast) that overlooks those mountains and a jungle/forest that has wild avocado trees, mango and chickens (we ate avocado and mango but not the chickens). I've stayed on the ocean side of the resort and while you may get an ocean view, it's so much quieter and more peaceful on the mountain side. Considering we spend most of our time on the beach, it's a real treat to come back to the condo and sit on that quiet lanai without another person in sight - and the stars at night! In short, wish I was still there and would recommend it to anyone.
This condo has everything you need for a great honeymoon!
Wow. In a place like Kauai where prices can run pretty high, this place was a great value. When I say "value", I do not mean that the place was good considering the price, I mean that the place was amazing, and the price was amazing. The kitchenette has almost anything you would need to cook while you are there. We brought some extra kitchen items unnecessarily because we were unsure of the situation, and ended up not needing them. The coffee machine has a timer, which is not a big deal, but it's nice to have especially on vacation. A nice gift basket was also left welcoming us to the island. The lanai with the table and two chairs is great. We would have coffee every morning out there, and watch the roosters and chickens downstairs. We also were able to see someone trim the two palm trees right outside the lanai. btw, when they trim the trees, you can really see the mountains in addition to the garden in the back. The garden view was great also, and birds would sit on the railing just feet from us as we ate breakfast. The bed is large and comfy, and the tv worked well and had good features (i.e. plugging an mp3 player into it via USB cord to play music).The bathroom is clean. The luggage stands at the end of the bed made a convenient place to access our bags without being in the way.
Couldn't ask for anything more! Best value on north shore
Very important - this unit comes equipped with a full kitchen! Many of the other studios/1 bedroom units say they have a "kitchenette" but only have a microwave or toaster and coffee maker. Unit 1525 has a stove, fridge, dishwasher, sink and a stocked kitchen. It also has a pull-out couch that our 3 year old was thrilled with. We found this lovely condo because our little family decided to extend our stay for an extra week and put out the a.p.b the night before. Aloha Condos was incredibly quick, friendly and accomodating in their response. And as a bonus - the value for unit 1525 was amazing! Very comfortable and nicely appointed. This unit is also close to the pool. Hanalei Bay Resort is our preferred condo/resort on the North Shore. Beautiful, mature grounds, excellent waterfall jacuzzi and lagoon pool (prefect for kids). I could go on and on. Thank you!
This was a beautiful location with great landscaping and nice view of Hanalei Bay from the pool area/lobby. We were pleased with the whole experience, and even our garden view room was a nice lookout. The pool and rec. area was very welcoming. walking distance to Hanalei Bay. Good service with a nice clean and updated condo. be sure to always read the fine print as there can be extra fees. That is the only drawback is the cleaning fees and any other fees that might come up.
THis is a real paradise!!!
We just loved everything! Our condono had everything you need for 10 days, even umbrella and chair for the beach. The sweeming pool is beautiful. Thank you!
