  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.

  • 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 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. 
  • Per County regulations, the lockoff units no longer have cooking appliances.  Even though you may have had them in the past, they are no longer available and this is beyond our control.
  • 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 the property manager, Kristen Greene, at (808) 822-0272 or

  • 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 RESPONSILBLE 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.







Condominium living requires each resident to have respect for the needs and rights of others.  The main purpose of these rules is to provide for the enjoyment, comfort and safety of each owner and guest, to protect all the occupants at the resort from annoyance and nuisance caused by improper use of the common elements at HBR and to protect the value and desirability of HBR.

Enjoyed our time at the Resort

We enjoyed the Hanalei Bay Resort property. The pool area was really pretty although we had wished that the pool was heated as it was at the Marriott in Poipu where we stayed the first week. Additionally, we were disappointed that the main restaurant onsite was under construction and not open, but did enjoy the live music at the bar and grill by the front desk. We thought the room could use some updating, but had a great view from the lanai. Our favorite part of the Resort was the sand bottom hot tub.

Manager Response

Aloha Julian,

Thank you for taking the time for sending us a review for unit 1206 at the Hanalei Bay Resort. Yes there are lots of pools at resort/complexes that are not heated but the bigger resorts like the Marriott can support the hugh electric bills. The main restaurant that used to be on the property years ago is not open and there is no future plans as of now of it opening. It has not been open since 2011 so it is not considered an amenity at this point. We are glad that you did enjoy the bar/lounge restaurant and music though.

Units at the Hanalei Bay Resort that are privately owned can be very different in the decor choices. We do post on the websites an abundance of pictures so that each guest can decide if this unit, its decor and finish choices are right for them. Updating is a matter of each individual owners tastes.

Bon séjour

Séjour de bonne qualité dans ce studio. Le cadre est magnifique et les prestations du Resort sont excellentes. Une petite réserve par rapport à l'annonce, il est mentionné une cuisine mais il n'y en a pas : pas de plaque de cuisson, pas de micro-ondes, pas de bouilloire et très peu d'ustensiles de cuisine.Très bon souvenir sur un plan général.

Really nice place to stay. Clean and well-kept grounds. I especially like that we had beach access a short walk down the road. From the beach, one can walk around the corner, wade across the Hanalei River, and walk into Hanalei town. Only negative is the rough rocks on the bottom of the pool. Smooth out those rocks and the place is perfect!!!

Room 1206 had everything we needed for a perfect stay on the north shore of Kauai. We stocked the fridge with beer, snacks, and stuff to make breakfast and sandwiches. Every morning we packed up the cooler they provided and headed out to the beach. They also provide beach chairs! The resort has a nice communal BBQ area where we grilled up steaks for dinner. The bed was comfortable, the AC worked great, and the view from the room was breathtaking. The room was close to the lobby and the pool and the shuttle down to the beach was so convenient. Aloha condos provided excellent service and they were super helpful. We can't wait to return!

The room was as described and suited us quite well. The view was beautiful and we loved having our morning coffee on the lanai and listening to the music from Happy Talk lounge in the evening.A few things that need attention: the bed closest to the door is tired and needs to be replaced, the wooden hanging rod on the wall behind the door in the bathroom is not secure and cannot be used, and the vinyl shower curtain really needs to be cleaned/refreshed.Other than that we really enjoyed our time there.Thank you!

We enjoyed staying in 1206. The location was perfect and close to the parking lot, pool, and hot tub. Yet, it still had a great view and was quiet. The condo itself had some chairs for the beach which were nice to use. The golf cart access to the beach was lovely as we had surfboards and easier to take a ride there than walk with the boards and chairs. We are fond of Hanalei Bay Resort for its access to the beach, tennis court, live music at restaurants, pool/hot tub area, and views. We will be back.

We read that there were new beds in this "condo". We did not sleep well at all and feel it was a misrepresentation of the beds. Also to put the "kitchenette" in a closet was strange. We love the HBR but would not stay here again. It was a very important 2 day trip and we left tired.

Manager Response

We have never had a complaint about these beds!  1206 is a room rental, not a condominium, therefore the microwave and coffee maker in the closet are only for quick snacks and are not for any serious food preparation.  The neighbor 1205 rental has those amenities. We are sorry that you did not have an experience that matched other renters.

What a beautiful view! Waking up to this view is magical. We were right by the pool (which btw the pool is awesome, love the waterfalls) and right by the parking too. Our favorite part was the short walk to the beach, we snorkeled every morning. I highly recommend Condo 1206, it's a great price. Although I wasn't stoked about having to pay taxes for the cleaning fee, that seemed odd and it seems like a very high cleaning fee for such a small room. But other than that we really enjoyed our time. Remember there isn't a stove or hot plate, only a microwave if you are planning to cook from your room. We would definitely come back again just for that view!

Manager Response

Dear J:

We are very happy that you enjoyed both 1206 and Hanalei Bay Resort. We are in agreement with you about the high costs of labor in Hawaii; it is an expensive place to live and wages/costs for cleaning and service are high. We have tried to compensate for this by keeping the rental of the Condo reasonable. Also, the State of Hawaii taxes everything: another cost of living in Paradise. Nevetheless, Hanalei Bay Resort is developing into a premiere resort experience and we are very pleased to share it with you. I also love that magical view from 1206.

Thank you.

The best feature of this condo is the view from the private balcony. It had everything we needed for a lovely two night stay. The beds are comfortable and it was very clean and quiet. The fridge, microwave, plates etc. were all helpful as we ate in both nights. The bathroom needs updating, but the rest of the condo was in good shape. We had an issue with the a/c unit and Aloha Condos was quick to respond. Although it couldn't be fixed right away they brought us a fan, but we didn't need it as we left the doors open and let the trade winds cool us off. The view off the balcony is magical. Excellent value for the money.

Great place to stay. Great views from the lanai, quiet and relaxing. We are here usually around Thanksgiving, so we don't need a full kitchen, as we eat at some good restaurants around Hanalei. So the microwave and coffee pot with mini fridge is all we need. The room is comfortable and has what you need. The only drawback is the beds are starting to sag a bit near the edges where you would sit to get in or talk on the phone. But still not a big deal. Love it here. We will always come back. Our favorite resort. Great people, great pool and jacuzzi, just an over all good time.

Built in the 70's, it is very well maintained with goregeous landscaping, pools with waterfalls and a path to the beach. The room is very plain vanilla, could use some bighter wall colors to compliment the outside landscape. The kitchen is actually in the bathroom closet and counter and food prep space is the bathroom sink area. All cooking is done at the outdoor barbeques. There is a microwave and they have a great blender for smoothies.

Dear Beach Lover:
1206 is essentially a hotel room and does not include a kitchen. We put essentials for minimal cooking (microwave, blender, etc.) in the washroom so that the renters could make snacks. 1205 (which is rented together with 1206 or separately, for less cost) has the kitchen. We painted the walls light gold-yellow to reflect the Kauai sun, to give the room a pleasing and light look, and to enhance the bamboo cabinetry and earthy tile floors. We have found that many people (and importantly, my wife) don't appreciate the "brighter colors." We are glad that you enjoyed our wonderful resort.

We have stayed at Hanalei Bay Resort off and on for many years. The view from this resort is incredible! The rooms are big and comfortable. This condos with a kitchen area are even more comfortable. The pool, hot tub, grounds, and tennis courts are well kept and beautiful. The hike down to the beach just adds to the experience of staying in a lush area. The acess to a ride back up the hill is very handy. The ground and cleaning staff were very helpful and friendly. I really miss the restaurant and Happy Talk Lounge.

Very good value for money!

This room has not much different from the others except that it is a very good value for money! Is is clean, comfortable, and offer a view on the garden by the pool.It is very close to the parking lot, which makes it easy to move around, and by the pool as well so it is very convenient.

Carefull : by the time of our venue, the restaurant of the hotel (which is nearby) was still under construction. That means noise during the day. We were out all the day so that did not bother us at all!!

Probably the best value accommodation on the Island

I must admit with the booking procedure I found all the rules and regulations by the company and owner a bit intimidating, and arrived a bit nervous of setting a foot wrong, however when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised by a gift pack by aloha Condos rental company, and all dealings I had with them were friendly and efficient.

Room 1206 is a motel type room (I wouldn't call it a studio as it didn't have a kitchen as such). It had a microwave, toaster and fridge - crockery, cutlery etc in the bathroom/laundry area so it was great to be able to make breakfast or heat up a quick meal. I loved sitting out on the balcony every morning looking at the ever changing view and enjoying the visits of various birds. The unit in parts needed a little bit of attention - some peeling paint on the bathroom door, a lamp switch was a bit dodgy and shower/bath faucet could be improved, but really was not a worry for me, and I found the accommodation comfortable and good value for money.

We love Hanalei.

The unit was a little small and dated. Would have enjoyed more color in the decor. Although we didn't spend much there, a bit more room would have been nice. Having to use the bathroom sink for everything was challenging, Next time we would be sure we had a kitchenette. We appreciated having plenty of towels and loved our lanai. The air conditioner, which we only needed at night , worked fine part of the time but there were a couple of nights it didn't seem to be cooling. I would really appreciate having wifi in the room. Wifi at the pool was not always working. We love the resort and want to return when the restaurant is completed. Thank you for allowing us to check in a few hours early.

Dear Kristen and Keith: I am surprised at your review, which is very contrary
to all other reviews. You rented the hotel room portion of the condominium, which is the reason it did not have a kitchen. The room was completely updated just a few years ago, as the pictures show.... The air conditioner is less than 2 years old and was checked out and works just fine.....Resort wide wi-fi is soon to be installed. Mahalo

We loved the room, the resort, the gardens, the view, the pools, the tennis courts, the access to the ocean. If anything I would say this place is extremely under-rated and under-marketed. We will be staying here again.

Condo 1206 was a great stay. The view of the mountains was spectacularand world class- better than in the photo we saw at booking time. Condo is simple with very nice linens, a good tv and well worth the price. Kitchenette has good amenitiesand with groceries so close it was easy to save moneyon some meals. Proximity to beach, golf, and hanalei is prime. Perfect jumping off point for activities but there is also enoughRelaxation to be had right on site.

Hanalei Bay Resort is beautiful and very reasonably priced. Condo 1206 was exactly as you see it in pictures and the view from the lanai is gorgeous. It had all the basics we needed (microwave, toaster, cork screw, etc!)It was perfect for us as it is close to all north shore beaches and less than 5 minutes to Princeville Centre for groceries, gifts, etc. Would definately recommend staying here.

Checkin was quick and the staff was courteous and helpful. The condo was clean and neat. The kitchenette facilities were just what we needed to prepare our simple breakfasts. The location is only a short drive from Hanalei and the Bay. We enjoyed the large, natural-like swimming pool. We enjoyed the quiet. The mattresses seem to be well past their prime.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Hanalei Bay Resort, Condo 1206. The location was ideal and the price was right! This condo has easy access to the pool and parking lot and the view from the lanai is hard to beat. Amenities are essentially like a hotel room but there is a microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator and toaster so we were able to do some cooking for breakfast each morning. It's a steep hike back from the beach but the value of this place is incredibly hard to beat. Apparently the restaurant burned over the summer so it was not operational but there are plenty of great places nearby. Enjoy!

a hotel room sold as a condo

This room is basically a hotel room being rented as a condo. It has two beds and a small table and 2 chairs. An interior connecting door to the "condo" next door allowed higher levels of noise than would normally be expected. The "kitchen" consists of a microwave and mini refrigerator located in a closet in the bathroom.

There is a very early check-out time and an outrageous $90.00 cleaning fee to clean one room and a bathroom.

The view from this property is very nice and the grounds of the property are pleasant and well maintained. However, next time we'll just rent a hotel, avoid the cleaning fee, and have a bit more reasonable check out time.

Dear Ferguson Family: As you must have noted by the pictures and videos, the facility that you rented is "a large studio" that consists of two double beds in a very large room with deck, bathroom, and dressing area. It also has a butler's closet so that the visitor can use a microwave, coffee pot, and toaster--to prepare snacks, not meals. To mention, the doors to the connecting condo are solid and
noise insulated and both parties have to stand directly next to them to hear any noise. The walls
between the condos are solid concrete, not allowing noise to penetrate. This "studio" is for one or two people, not a family. The size and amenities for this remodeled, clean, and well-situated studio are very inexpensive compared to any of the hotel rooms in the Princeville and Hanalei area and are a "real bargain".

My wife and I were just trying to get a place near her daughter and family, so I selected this room based on location and rates. The room was considerably beyond our expectations. Beautiful view of well kept gardens and the mountains beyond. Very friendly and helpful staff. A well appointed room (small refrig, microwave, utensils) with a sizable deck. We hope to return to this resort soon.

No complaints except we could hear every word the people in the room next door (1205) were saying. It was like there wasn't even a wall between us. Their voices weren't muffled, they were loud and clear. And the people weren't yelling, just speaking in normal voices. We woke up most mornings listening to them talk. Other than that, the room was decent for the price and there's a nice view from lanai (although again, the same privacy issue from the people next door).

The inner doors between both units have been changed out to solid, soundproofed doors to eliminate this problem. The walls between units are solid concrete--eight inches thick. We are always making improvements to make the experience in our condominiums a wonderful one. Mahalo.....
