Studio 1-Bath Garden View Condo- Sleeps 3
Very relaxing and beautiful view of the island.
Very clean and well equipped condo with a picture perfect view of the island. The employees were extremely friendly and helpful. We had a great time there!
Good value and beautiful resort
We moved into Condo #1526 for the last 2 nights of our trip (stayed in another condo for the first 11 nights). We were apprehensive about moving to this condo, having been in a very nice condo (#4324), but at least we were still at HBR. We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious this studio felt. It felt actually bigger than our other unit.There is a nice sized bar/countertop area (that the other condo #4324) did not have, which made preparing snacks, drinks etc much easier. Additionally, the fridge was bigger than we had in the other unit. Although we missed the ocean view, we actually enjoyed the quiet mountain view. We did not have neighbors the first night, however we could tell the difference the 2nd night. We could definitely hear more voices and talking and banging sounds from next door, and above us (something we did not experience in #4324), however it didn't detract too much from our experience. The bed felt very comfortable also. For the lower cost of this unit,we felt it was a great value. If you are uncomfortable with any sounds from units above or next to you, you may not like this unit as much, but it didn't bother us much since we were so tired at the end of the day anyway. Some people do not like that the parking for this bldg. leads you past the maintenance/trash area, but we didn't mind. we actually appreciated parking closer to our unit and we liked waving to our friendly golf cart and maintenance crew anyway. Very nice people. We did notice that the microwave turning plate did not spin, causing the contents to cook unevenly, burning on one side. There is a nice toaster oven though, which we didn't have in the other unit. Also something that is nice is that the toilet is in a separate room (can close the door), from a large dressing/vanity/sink area, which gives the feeling of added space as well. If on a budget and want a descent place, this would be a good choice. We loved the resort, - the pool/jacuzzi is amazing. People very friendly.
My husband and I stayed in this condo during June of 2012. We were travelling with other family members, but their condo was to small, so we rented this one as well. We liked the beach access (with fairly decent snorkeling)and our daughter loved the pool. The staff were very friendly and took care to assist us with my mother-in-law who has some physical disabilities. We would stay here again.
Nice lanai (good bird watching!), nice condo/studio, pleasant stay. If a few frongs of a coconut tree were cut would have an even better view of the amazing waterfalls in the background
Good room for the money!
This condo was a good for the price we paid. It was more than adequate, there was a coffee pot, blender, bar fridge, toaster oven, cutlery and the bathroom was large. Enjoyed the stay. Thanks to owner of Condo 1526!!
I just loved the Condo. It was very nice and looked exactly like the picture. Very clean and comfortable. I will recommend it to all my family and friends. Thank You for a very enjoyable stay. I will be back.
A really nice place to base yourself on kauai
This simple but tastefully decorated and comfortable condo was the ideal accomodation for which to base ourselves while exploring Kauai. The kitchenette was ample and had everything we needed, the bed large and comfortable. The only shortcoming was the common doorway to the adjacent condo which was to enable a large family to use both units if needed, although entry was not possible between units during our stay we did experience quite audible conversations from the other guests next door, sometimes in the early hours of the morning. This might be easily fixed with a fitted peice of 'foam' insulation that could be left in the door space when not being used as a thoroughfare? Apart from that, it is a very comfortable unit that I would highly recommend to others. The staff at the Hanalei Bay Resort were excellent.
Information I wish I had known
Was not aware of $25 check in fee until my final payment had been made. Because I am slightly disabled,the stairs were very difficult for me and I was unable to use any of the resort amenities for which we paid a daily use fee. I would have looked at other properties if I had known of the stairs (especially) and the use fees for things I could not have used. We found the room clean and very nice although it is somewhat odd that one has to wash dishes in the bathroom as there is no sink in the kitchenette. I would recommend this place to others if the stairs didn't bother them, but would not (could not) rent this property again.
Great location, Value, with minor Flaws
Great spot and excellent Price. Rooms are a little too close together which means you can hear you neighbours' conversations (and they yours). A little too isolated from food given the distance of the shopping centre and high cost of the St Regis. Need to get that restaurant running, especially for Breakfast. Other than that, this place is great.
