    1. This is a privately owned unit and guests are renting directly from the homeowners whose company name is Gerry Main (as will appear on your credit card statement).   Therefore your reservation is non-transferable between other properties. 
      1. This condominium is professionally managed by Vacation Realty Hawaii LLC (808) 822-0272.  
      2. Your  on-island contact is Graeme D. Merrin, RB, ABR, GRI  During normal business hours, contact (808) 822-0272.  For after hours emergency only 808-651-7211.  
    2. Resort Fees: HANALEI BAY RESORT WILL CHARGE YOU $20 PER DAY FOR RESORT USAGE.  THIS INCLUDES  POOL TOWELS,AMENITIES AND WIFI. THERE ALSO IS A 6 DOLLARS PER DAY PARKING FEE PER CAR.  THE GUEST IS RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING THESE CHARGES WHICH ARE DUE AT CHECKOUT. Resorts that require “resort fees” for guests staying on the property solely make the decision on what the amount of the fees will be and it is out of the control of the owner of this property.  These fees are subject to change at anytime without notice and could change before your arrival and could be different than the original fee stated in your reservation.  We make every effort to communicate changes in fees as soon as we are notified. 
  • Amenities provided by third-party vendors (for example utility companies or subcontractors) are beyond our control.  We do our best to provide services such as cable television, internet, and resort telephones.  Should these be unavailable for part or all of your stay we will do our best to help restore services, but ultimately cannot be held responsible.  Should you absolutely require internet access we recommend you make arrangement for these services through a cell phone company.
  • A $250 security deposit is required with this reservation and we will process a credit card authorization in that amount prior to your arrival.  This authorization will expire after your departure assuming no damages or fines are incurred.  A charge may result for damage to the condo, missing contents or for exceeding the stated number of overnight guests.  If a guest arrives without notice earlier than the scheduled check in time of 3pm or fails to depart by the required 10am checkout time, their security deposit which is on hold will be charged in full.  Our units hold very busy time lines and the failure to leave on time can cost money and schedule disasters.  Likewise arriving earlier than scheduled can disrupt the busy cleaning flow, cause mishaps and confusions with the housekeeping staff.  Damage in excess of the $250.00 security deposit will additionally be charged to your credit card commensurate with such damage.  Guests are responsible for reporting any damages immediately to Graeme Merrin at (808) 651-7211 or alohacondos@vacationrealtyhawaii,com
  • The reservation deposit is nonrefundable; however if a cancellation is made more than 60 days prior to the check-in date, the full reservation deposit may be applied to a new set of reservation dates in the same condo beginning anytime up to one year from the original check-in date (subject to availability). Cancellations made within 30 days of the check-in date results in loss of all payments.
  • The regular occupancy for 1205 is 2.  The regular occupancy for unit 1206 is 4.  The regular occupancy for 1205/06 is 6. Guests are obligated to disclose the actual number of occupants prior to arrival.
  • We do our very best to have the units clean and in proper working order for your arrival.  Should there be any cleaning or maintenance problems please call your on-island contact at your first opportunity.  We require the opportunity to rectify any problems and will do so in a reasonable amount of time.
  • At no time should anyone sleep on sofas other than sleeper sofas that are opened up and have sheets on them.
  • A pack-n-play and booster seat are available at no extra charge, but must be requested via email to at the time of booking or with reasonable notice prior to arrival. if more than one is needed, then it is up to the guest to rent one from a local rental company.
  • Stays of more than 10 days have additional mandatory interim-cleaning.  For example if you stay for 11 nights you would have an interim and a final outclean.  If you stay for 21 nights you would have two interim cleans and one outclean.
  • Check-in time is 3 PM and checkout time is 10 AM.  Please be certain to plan your arrival and departure times accordingly.   We have a very tight cleaning schedule and the housekeeper will likely arrive at 10:00 to begin the clean.  Extra charges may apply if you have not departed at 10:00 as we have to compensate the housekeeper for wait-time.  If you need an early check-in or late check-out we recommend you book an extra night.

  • Cleaning fees are based on an average hourly cost.  If the condo is left excessively messy and it can’t be made rent-ready within the cost of the cleaning fee, guests will be charged $37.50/hr for the additional cleaning.
  • Suntan lotions, after-sun lotions and related products leave bleach-like stains in fabrics.  Please be careful with our upholstery and bedspreads.  We use white towels and white sheets for this reason, but it is not practical to have white sofas and bedspreads.  Please shower before getting into bed, and please sit on a towel if you have sun products on your skin and you want to sit on the upholstery.  Wash hands thoroughly after applying sun products to avoid accidentally damaging fabrics.  Guests are responsible for damage to linens and upholstery from products they use.
  • Smoking is strictly prohibited in the condo or on the condo lanai and doing so will result in full loss of security deposit.  We have covered lanais, so the smoke gets trapped and blows into the unit.  
  • Air conditioning is available.  Please know that Kauai has the most expensive electricity on the island and condo electric bills run between $450 and $700 a month.  Please help us to conserve electricity and keep our rates down by turning off the a/c when you are not home, keeping blinds closed during the day to keep the condo cool, and keeping windows and sliding doors closed when you are running the a/c.
  • We provide sheets for each bed and two bath towels per stated guest.  There is no daily housekeeping service, but you are welcome to use the washer/dryer in the unit if you are renting 1205 or 1205/06.  If you are renting 1206 only, you are welcome to use the coin operated washers by the 2000 building. If you have an interim clean included with your reservation we will launder the linens during the clean.  Please do not leave personal laundry in the washer when housekeeping is coming for the interim clean.
  • We also provide a reasonable amount of amenities such as toilet paper, paper towels, tissue, soaps and detergents for your use.  Should you run out, you are responsible for purchasing additional products for the duration of your stay, unless you have an interim clean at which time we will replenish those supplies.
  • Please make sure that all towels, beach equipment and remotes are left behind at the condo when you depart.  Turn keys in to the front desk. We charge replacement costs for each lost item (cost of item, travel time & accounting).  Generally items are lost because they are left in the rental car, so please check your car carefully before you leave for the airport.
  • No pets of any kind are allowed except for service animals.
  • Keep indoor furniture indoors, and outdoor furniture outdoors.  There is a $50 fee if furniture needs to be moved back to its original place upon your departure.  For example, if you move a large glass table, the management company will have to hire someone to go help the housekeeper put it back.
  • Hurricane or Storm Policy: No refund will be given unless a “mandatory evacuation order” has been given by the National Weather Service for Princeville and the surrounding area.  In the event a mandatory evacuation order is issued we will refund unused portions of rent of a guest currently occupying the property and any advanced rents or deposits collected for a guest that is scheduled to arrive during the Hurricane Warning period.
  • GUESTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR FOLLOWING THE HOUSE RULES OF HANALEI BAY RESORT.  Violation of the rules can result in fines, and guests are responsible for paying those fines.  In severe cases if guests are permanently removed from the condo and from the grounds of HBR by the homeowner, property manager, resort management company or the police the guest will not be refunded for rent paid for unused nights, even if the guest is prohibited from returning to the property.

Stunningly Beautiful Views

We stayed two nights this year around a promo on the south shore of Kauai. In 2017 we stayed four nights and loved it so much we just had to come back at least a little while. The view in the morning when you sit on your lanai is just gorgeous. The rooster comes and makes his announcement of the morning which we love. The unit itself has a very comfortable bed, plenty of storage, a washer and dryer and great little kitchen. We went down to the beach one morning and had the best time snorkeling and then just pick up the courtesy phone and they pick you up, since the walk back up is very steep. We truly love this unit and resort it's not as "glitsey" as some others but the resort and unit are a great place to experience that feeling of Aloha.

The space was just perfect for two for a week on Kauai. Everything was clean and well kept. Much bigger than a regular hotel room. And the small kitchen was just enough for us to make breakfast in every morning to enjoy on the lanai with the most gorgeous view of the grounds, Nepali coast and toward Hanalei Bay. The location of the condo was very proximate to the pool and amenities which was also a nice bonus.

It was great that the owner of the property left beach chairs, umbrellas, a rolling cooler, boogie boards for us to use. Great touch that we appreciated.

The property was wonderful as well. We spent plenty of time at the pool, hot tub and sitting area to watch the sunset. We checked out quite a few of the neighbouring properties while we were there and the Hanalei Bay Resort was far superior. We really enjoyed our stay, would recommend this unit and property, and will definitely be back. Aloha!

I had a wonderful stay at Hanalei Bay Resort # 1205. The condo is in a great location with fantastic views of the bay and mountains in the distance. Happy Talk Lounge is maybe 50 feet away but not close enough to be a distraction. There is a steep trail that leads to the beach. It can be kind of treacherous in places but you can always have the concierge get you a ride. Overall a great, relaxing place to unwind and enjoy the tropical scenery.

Manager Response

Aloha Peggy,

Thank you for your review for unit 1205 at the Hanalei Bay Resort. We are glad to hear that you liked the accommodations. We are confused about the policing comment. I know the resort monitors the parking and passes are required to make sure people not staying at the resort do not use the parking lot for access down to the beach so there is enought spaces for the guests. I imagine that the pool hours etc are monitored but other than that I am not sure what would be policed. They also monitor the no smoking rule etc. However all these things would be in place at any resort. We hope you do understand that those things help to accommodate all guests.

The best balcony view!

Small studio with all the amenities one could possibly need for a stay in Princeville. Lovely balcony with a beautiful mountain (and partial ocean!) view, small kitchen with 2 burners and a mini fridge, nice spacious bathroom with a good shower, washer dryer, even beach chairs to borrow! The Hanalei Bay Resort in which it's located has a lovely pool, helpful front desk staff, and a tasty restaurant with a full bar. Beautiful beach just a short walk from your front door – I should note that it requires a going down and back up a fairly steep path, though it did seem like you could arrange a ride in a golf cart for those who couldn't make the trek or had little ones in tow.

I would stay in this unit again in a heartbeat!

The condo location was amazing. Beautiful views of the mountains and close to the main lobby and pool areas. The condo was also pretty comfortable. Weven were also happy that there was a little kitchenette with stove. We did buy some dried food items, but there was no cupboard space to store them.We did discover that the shower wasn't cleaned well before we arrived. There some were brown smears on the walls, and the drain was clogged from the beginning. Tried to call the main desk, who said they would contact the property management, but no one ever came. We did find draino in the closet by the 3rd day of our stay there and it did work to clear the drain.

aloha Alison,

We thank you for your review about the unit 1205 at the Hanalei Bay Resort.  We are happy to hear you loved the location and the condo was comfortable and you made use out of the kitchenette.   We did not get any message about the issue you had with the shower.  However in all our communication with you through multiple emails and instructions, we told you to call us the property management company directly or our on island contact.  We gave you phone numbers and emails for contact information.  The front desk at the resort does not manage this unit as it is privately owned, therefore they are not the ones to contact.  If you would have contacted us, we would have taken care of that immediately.  We hope you can see the importance of instructions.

Loved the area and all there is to do. Lots of hiking. Limited on dining options if you want to walk.Condo was very nice with all required amenities.Went up to the St. Regis for breakfast one day which is extremely overpriced. The Regis is dated and sure would not recommend anyone staying there for the money. Condos like this one are phenomenaly better value.

Manager Response

aloha Chris,

Thank you for your feedback and responding to our request for a review.  We are glad the condo worked well for you and you enjoyed the island.

Thanks for mentioning the value in this condo as it is a very reasonable option with a perfect location.

This resort does have the restaurant that is open from 3 to 9pm and there are lots of restaurants in Princeville at the shopping center and a couple others at resorts in Princeville.  However it is recommended to have a car on the island because it is rural and not a big city atmosphere where everything is in walking distance.

We hope you can return in the near future.

We really enjoyed our stay at HBR and in this unit. The views were much better than anticipated, being able to see the waters and beach of Hanalei Bay. The pack'n'play and high chair were very helpful for our stay with our 7 month old daughter, and the spacious bathroom area allowed us to have her sleep in what equated to another room. The three of us enjoyed playing with birds on the lanai during our morning breakfasts. The pool was great, we used the bbq's most nights, and didn't find the walk down to the beach all that terrible. Beach had great views, over the bay and mountains, and one could probably use the St. Regis facilities if desired. All-in-all, really enjoyed our time there.

Paradise Awaits

This was my first time in Hawaii and I planned this trip to attend my son's wedding. I decided to make this a long vacation as well and stayed on Kauai for 10 days. The first 5 days were spent in Koloa/Poipu and the remainder of the time was in Princeville. Although the south side was enjoyable, I was looking forward to the north side to see the mountains. This condo sure met all my expectations! For about 8 months, as I arrived to my office each morning, I was greeted with a beautiful photo as my screen saver-the photo of the view from the unit. I couldn't believe the actual view would be that perfect, but it was. I purposely did not shut the drapes at night so that when I awoke in the morning and sat up in bed, THAT was the view I got to see. This unit is perfect for 1-2 people. The mini kitchen was nice as I made my meals for a majority of the time. Having a stackable washer/dryer in the unit was so handy; nothing like packing all clean clothes for the journey home. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony and soaking in the view. There were many different types of colorful birds that would perch on the railing or the trellis and you could hear the roosters below. That sound never bothered me. One day I took one of the beach chairs that came with the unit and headed down to the beach. Just a heads up, the walk down to the beach is very steep (but it's paved) so be careful if you're attempting it in flip flops. Since you have to pay a daily resort fee for parking, WiFi, etc. one included perk is being able to call a bellman to pick you up and take you down to the beach and then back again when you are done (very handy if you're carrying beach chairs, towels, a cooler, etc). It's beautiful at the beach with 2 really large shade trees with the hugest leaves I have ever seen. I plopped my beach chair under the tree and enjoyed the breeze while watching surfers, swimmers, sailboats, the mountain and multi-colored birds walking on the sand. The fancy lounge chairs down there are NOT for the use of Hanalei Bay Resort; they belong to the St. Regis. Unit 1205 is conveniently located near the parking lot, the hotel lobby check-in and the Happy Talk Lounge, on relatively flat ground, Some of the other units are much farther away down pretty steep hills. The pool that is closest is the beautiful resort salt water pool. I had a bellman drive me to the lower pool one day which is a chlorine pool and very private because only one other person was there. This unit is definitely a bargain for the price. The only drawback I saw (not for me, but potentially for someone else) is that there is no dedicated closet. There is an armoire with a place to hang shirts and pants, but not suitable for long dresses. All in all I was very pleased with the unit and the resort. I would definitely book unit 1205 again in the future if I am ever lucky to return to Kauai. I found my eyes started to tear as I exited the parking lot for the airport. The beautiful island of Kauai as well as the Hanalei Bay Resort will forever have a place in my heart.

Spectacular View and Best Location on the Island

Reviewed by Tanya

We loved this resort! When we pulled into the resort we literally thought we must have made a wrong turn because it was SO beautiful. Amazing price for that view and the location in Princeville is the absolute best. We already booked another vacation to Hanalei Bay Resort for next year! The bed looked right out onto the spectacular view and was very comfortable. If you plan on cooking in the tiny kitchen be aware there is only about 12" x 24" space for drying dishes or meal prep unless you move the microwave but we only cooked 1 meal in the kitchen anyways and we made it work.

Thank you for your wonderful review and taking the time to post.  It is a really beautiful resort and a perfect location with amazing views from everywhere!  This studio unit does only have a kitchenette and not a full kitchen but it does accommodate some cooking and food preparation and storage.   Also we would mention that there are BBQ areas on the resort property to also assist in meal preparation.  We are glad you made it work and we do hope you can come again!

This condo was perfect for my husband and me. It's spacious, comfortable, has a VERY comfortable bed as well, and it has a spectacular view out the balcony doors of the mountains, trees, garden and a little ocean too. The condo isn't "fancy", but it was just what we needed. It also has a nice TV and DVD player which we appreciated because we watched a couple movies while there. The kitchenette is very helpful too (although a new microwave would probably be helpful). The beach equipment was also super helpful (we used the beach umbrella and beach chairs), but they could be replaced with newer ones as they're pretty old and worn-down. They were definitely a nice bonus though which we appreciated. The price was very good, and in my opinion this was a much better deal than booking a hotel room. The Hanalei Bay Resort is just lovely. You get the "resort experience" without having to pay resort prices. $20 resort fee/day is worth it. The Lobby area, pool/spa area (with a swim-up bar) and restaurant are great and very scenic. What's great about condo 1205 is that it's super close to the parking lot, Lobby, restaurant, pool area, etc., which is very convenient. We were able to get in and out of the property very quickly throughout our stay because of how close this condo is to the parking lot. Although the view isn't an ocean view, it's a spectacular view (with some ocean in it) and it's worth it because of the convenient location of the condo. If you stay in a condo closer to the water then you have to hike back and forth to your car, and walking to places (like Hideaways Beach or Queen's Bath) takes even longer. Also, the neighbors staying in the condo next to us were polite and not loud and the only time we noticed them is when we were out on the balcony at the same time as them. As long as everyone is respectful of one another there shouldn't be any issues. The next time my husband and I visit Kauai we will definitely book this condo again! P.S.- we stayed here for 3 nights and in Poipu for 4 nights, and we prefer Princeville over Poipu. :)

Clean room with a great view of the mountains and a sliver of Hanalei bay. The in suite laundry was a lifesaver with our 9 month old, and there were tons of things to use such as coolers, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and a pail and shovel for baby. The kitchenette was great to have, with a decent size mini fridge, though no freezer. The sink was nice and deep, so it was great for bathing baby. The only cons for us were the lack of blackout curtains, since it made baby's naps and sleeping in impossible, and the noise from the live bands at Happy Talk lounge. The music ends early enough though, and as long as the doors are closed it's not too loud, so it was not a huge deal.

Unit 1205 was a good price, clean, and had a very comfortable bed! A benefit of it having the bed in the main room was that you could see the amazing view of the Kauai mountains while relaxing in bed. It was nice to be able to snorkel and hang out on the beach right down the hill too, and we enjoyed several lunches at the restaurant. The only issue is that both the front door and the door connecting to the other unit are not sound proof at all. Our neighbors had a party one night, and that kept us up half the night. The doors are so light that you can clearly hear conversations your neighbors are having at normal volume, not just loud noises. Overall we would stay here again since it was one of the best deals on the island.

Thank you so much for your review.  We thank you for noting the good price, the clean unit and the amazing views.  The connecting doors are just like a hotel and sometimes sound can come through.  However we can suggest to the owner to try to get some doors that might be more sound proof as an upgrade.  Please note that after 10pm the resort has quiet hours and therefore if you would have called us or the resort, we could have taken care of the situation for you.  We are glad to hear that you will be back again.  We hope to see you soon!

We recently had 2 nights at the Hanalei bay resort in 1205 and enjoyed our stay immensely. The studio had everything we could possibly need. It had a lovely view even though it was in the building farthest away from the ocean. ( there are still ocean glimpses) We liked the location as it was close to where our car was parked. Other units with better views are a long way to the parking lot. The little beach shared with the at Regis was gorgeous and relaxing. 1205 is close to the pool. We loved the pool although there was some work being done there - it didn't effect our enjoyment of the pool however. The resort is quiet, has beautiful gardens and Beautiful views of the Hanalei mountainS and bay, and isn't over the top which we liked. Our only concern was the connection of the wifi. We couldn't get coverage while there. In the end that was a good thing! We would recommend 1205 and Aloha Condos for their service. Definitely will be back.

Had a wonderful stay in this place. I am a vacation rental host myself and was very impressed with the way this apartment is prepared. This place is an amazing value considering Hanalei Bay is the main place to visit and stay in Kauai and most hotels in the area cost upwards of $400+. We really enjoyed having resort services like fresh pool towels and Beach shuttle. The pool and jacuzzi area is a great spot to relax after a day out exploring the island. You can bring your own food and drinks to the pool. My girl loved having a washer and dryer to do laundry when needed.

This condo is definitely worth every penny. Located right near a golf course and many upscale homes. This condo is on a resort with an amazing pool area and walking distance to a beach. The only thing I would say is this is not walking distance for anyone with a mobility issue. The hill to get to the beach is pretty steep. If you are physically able, it was an enjoyable walk! The room itself has a island feeling decor which is perfect since you are on the island :). Wicker furniture which is pretty cool! The bed faces a large slider window so you can open the curtains and jus leave the screen door shut to hear and see the amazing sites of nature!

The room was equipped with a cooler to take food with you in the car or the beach, bug spray (we didn't need it) all the kitchenware you could need and there is a little grocery store a short drive away. We purchased food there and stored it in the fridge in the room.

We spent a week there and thenet family in Honolulu. They kept hearing so many great things from my husband an I about the room that they decided to book the same place the weekend after we checke out of this place! They loved it as well.

We’re sorry our guests had problems with noisy neighbors. Our On Island Contact Information is posted in the condo plus it was sent to the guests prior to arrival. A phone call to our On Island Contact would have allowed us to contact the neighbor directly about excess noise and also to replace the broken hair dryer. These are both very easy items for us to rectify and we‘re always concerned about guests’ comfort. All units at Hanalei Bay Resort have these connecting doors as it gives guests several options for renting the amount of space they need. Incidentally the connecting doors are located in the entrance hallway and are in fact double solid core doors set into a 8 inch thick concrete wall.

Manager Response

Dear Laurie from Edmonton:

We are so glad to have shared Hanalei Bay Resort with you; it is Paradise. In September of 1992, Hurricane Iniki struck Hawaii--the worst hurricane in its history. During this hurricane, almost all of the chickens and roosters kept by islanders in their backyards escaped from their pens and have reproduced extensively. They roam the island in considerable numbers. Many of the islanders and visitors feel that these birds add to the flavor of the island--an enhancement. Others feel that their presence and occasional crowing are a nuisance. Hanalei Bay Resort has a program of intermittently rounding up these birds and redepositing them elsewhere on the island. It is likely that you were at Hanalei Bay Resort just prior to one of the repositioning efforts. This is an issue that faces all of the Hawaiian islands, courtesy of Iniki and we hope that it did not adversely effect you enjoyment of this Paradise.

We spent five fantastic nights at this condo, located at the Hanalei Bay Resort in Princeville. This 2nd floor condo is centrally located to the front desk, parking lot and main swimming pool.

The unit was loaded with amenities. From a fully-stocked kitchenette to a large bathroom with no shortage of soaps, shampoos, towels, etc. There is even a stacked washer/dryer unit off of the bathroom (a huge plus). The king bed is very comfortable and the sleeping/living area also boasts a dresser, armoire, sofa, coffee table, 2-person dining table and a wall-mounted, flat-screen tv that pulls out and can be turned for viewing from either the seating area or the bed.

The balcony/lanai is a good size, with a table and two chairs. The view of the lush courtyard with the mountains beyond Hanelei Bay is superb. There are plenty of birds and chickens around, and they are a joy to watch.

We have stayed at the Hanelei Bay Resort on two other occasions ('04 and '06). This is the best condo we have found, with the best rates as well. Since all of the condos at this resort are now individually owned, you will find a variety of rates for the different units. Aloha Condos clearly has the best rates for their condos.

The only downside to our stay is that some of the services at the resort have changed and/or been eliminated in recent years. Both the restaurant and bar are now closed. This is not a reflection on the condo itself, but it is a reality.

The two main highlights of this particular resort are still there. These include the fabulous swimming pool. In my experience and opinion, it is the best pool in all of Hawaii. The other gem is Pu'u Poa Beach, located just below the resort. It's the closest thing to a private beach you will find on the island.

If your Kauai vacation plans take you to the north shore, don't pass-up the opportunity to stay in condo #1205, Hibiscus at the Hanelei Bay Resort. You won't regret it.

Overall, it was a good experience. Communication prior to arrival was clear and helpful. Check-in was easy and the unit was as described. The unit was pretty clean. We found no bugs or lizards and no real dirt to speak of. We did need to wash all dishes before using them, they were clearly just rinsed. The small kitchenette was clean and stocked with any dishes, pans and utensils that one might need. The furnishings were fine and the bathroom was nice and spacious. The large flat screen TV was nice as was the view from the balcony- that was the best part. The mountains would take our breath away each time we looked out. I thought more care could have been taken to better clean the balcony.

The following are suggestions to make future guest's stay a bit more comfortable:-provide hand soap for the bathroom (we bought some and left it there, our gift)-provide facial tissue-provide a towel for use in the kitchenette (we ended up using one of our hand towels)-provide a couple win glasses-get either lower chairs for the balcony or a higher table (you couldn't comfortable eat at the table, I think it was a mis-matched set.)-better soundproof the adjoining room, you could clearly hear conversation from other guests, light also came through the bottom of the door quite brightly (the door is a bit too short)

Let me stress, these are minor things. I think this condo is a great value for the money and I would stay here again. The resort is nice and you have access to shared propane gas grills. The pool is beautiful, quiet and clean.

My husband and I stayed at the Hanalei Bay Resort, condo #1205, in Princeville from March 3 - 6, 2010. We booked our reservation through Kristen at Aloha Condos and were very impressed with her customer service and honest recommendations. The room was exactly as described- newly remodeled, clean, conveniently located, great view from balcony, washer/dryer and a small kitchenette. The only minor issue with the condo was a plumbing mishap that caused the bathroom sink to fill with water when the washer/dryer was in use. We reported the issue to Kristen and was informed the owner would be arranging for a repair at a later date. Hanalei Bay Resort had beautiful grounds and a nice swimming pool/hot tub. The poolside table and chairs seemed a bit run down but we weren't bothered by this since we spent most of our time exploring the nearby beaches. I would highly recommend this condo for anyone wanting a self-service style vacation at a laid back resort (we are in our mid-30's and prefer "do it yourself" vacations). We rarely came in contact with other guests at the resort and heard minimal noise from other parties. For dining in the area, make sure to check out Bubba's Burgers, Kalypso and Postcards Cafe. All in all, a great place to stay!

Stayed 6 nites mid sept 09 Room on 2nd floor (steps). Clean room, very small kitchen & refr.with Mcrwv, sink,2 burner stove top, utensils adequate & worked. A/c good, bathroom dated but functioned. Could have used a couple more small face/hand towels since there was no W/D. Carpet smelled a little musty (most do in Hawaii/tropics).Lanai needed to be cleaned -Aloha Condo Mgr cleaned it quickly, needed iron & board & she delivered that as well. W/D room close to the area convenient & reasonable, needed tidying more often. Nice Aloha package with water, coffee, nuts & tote bag. View was beautiful of property front facing Hanalei bay, had glimpse of water, huge rainbow 6AM, pool no slides but nice size & not crowded. Happy talk loung was ok w/ nice view. Front desk courteous not knowledgable of instructing persons who is responsible for what (cleaning/maintenance. Refrigerator needs light bulb, sink needed fixing,cleaning of lanai, iron, etc.Despite how this may sound our stay was very good here and glad it was available. Will stay again. Fish from Dolfin Fish Mkt is excellent!

We stayed at the Hanalei Bay Resort for our honeymoon in August 2009. The grounds and pool area were fantastic! We especially enjoyed being able to drink alcohol poolside.

The room was average. Carpeting was old and worn and the bathroom sink faucet leaked. But the king size bed was very comfortable and we really enjoyed having air conditioning.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
