We were beyond happy with the condo. Originally we wanted an ocean view location, but having the view of the lush mountains was amazing. The beds (mattresses and linens) were extremely comfortable. The condo was immaculate and had everything we needed. We loved our stay at Hanalei Bay Resort.

Relaxing holiday destination

This was an ideal place to stay for relaxing on Kauai, the condo had everything we needed, including beach chairs, buckets, spades etc for the kids. It was clean and spacious and was only a short walk to the beautiful swimming pool. Walking distance from the resort beach where you can watch the sunset and swim. My only gripe (and this was nothing to do with the condo) was that the resort had no on site bar or restaurant, I understand that they are currently being renovated, however when I booked the condo I thought the restaurant would be open by summer 2015, however this was not the case. Don't get me wrong, it didn't spoil the holiday, but was just inconvenient, especially when you have kids who do not want to leave the swimming pool to go grocery shopping or drive to a restaurant. Once the renovations are completed this would be my perfect holiday destination.

We stayed at the Hanalei Bay Resort for 4 days and couldn't have been happier with the resort and the condo. The view of the mountains and waterfalls from the lanai were awesome. The grounds and scenery of the resort as a whole are amazing. Very picturesque. Even though it rained most of the time we were there, we still managed to enjoy a couple sunsets sitting on the bluff overlooking Hanalei Bay. The beach is a short walk down the hill and they have golf carts to take you if you don't feel like walking. One thing to note, you don't need an umbrella at the beach since there is a lot of shade. We didn't realize this and got sold an umbrella at the rental desk. We had our 20 month old baby with us and found the resort to be very kid-friendly but not overrun with kids. We requested a pack and play and high chair which was set up in our room when we arrived. The condo had kids beach toys, boogie boards, tennis rackets, a cooler, beach chairs among other things. Overall, I highly recommend condo 1557-58 and Hanalei Bay Resort.

We rented both units, 1557 and 1558, which worked well for us. 1558 has a full kitchen and a washer/dryer, both of which we wanted. 1557 provided us with an extra bedroom and bath, which we like (older married couple). Also, renting the extra 1557 unit ensured more privacy and quiet. The units are on the top floor and have an unobstructed view over a valley to the green Kaua'i mountains and a few very distant houses. One has a feeling of great privacy, although if the guests below or in the next building were noisy one would hear that. Other than that, it is just bird song and roosters.

Both units had comfortable and attractive furniture and felt homey. The kitchen was well appointed. I was not able to connect to the aloha Condos Wi-Fi, even with the owner's help, but was able to connect with the Ethernet cable provided with the router.

Overall, the condo provided us well with our needs, was comfortable, and had this Hawaiian ambiance including the lovely view. We enjoyed our meals on the lanai even when the trade winds were somewhat noticeable. If we return to Kaua'i, we would like to stay at this condo again.

From the pictures it seemed like the unit was very small and space would be tight. But, we left the murphy bed down the whole time and there was plenty of room to walk around. The kitchen in the 1557 unit has everything you need and more. Beautiful views from the balcony of the mountains. Birds visited our table every morning.

Beach is a little hike away, but all you have to do is call front desk and in no time someone comes in a golf cart and takes you there.

Washer and dryer in 1557. Super convenient since we went hiking and came back with clothes full of red mud.

The resort staff are super nice and always available to help.

These are privately owned units so I was a little skeptical about being able to get a hold of the owner during my stay. But, the owner was always available either by phone or e-mail to answer all our questions.

Only thing I didn't like was that this units limits stay to 2 people. Initially it was 2 of us, and at the last minute my sister decided to join. Thought I would only have to pay extra for her, but we had to rent the unit adjacent to it 1558. That unit is more like a hotel room with a mini fridge, toaster oven and microwave. It ended up being a blessing but it did cost us more.

Another thing to have in mind is that since this is a privately own unit there is no housekeeping service. It was not a problem for us since I usually ask not to have housekeeping service.

The resort is located in the north side of the island. Most things are in the south so location in that sense is not best. But, the beach at this location is much nicer and the area is very nice and quiet. The island is not that big. So distance wasn't too much of an issue.

Spent many hours relaxing on the lanai with morning coffee or late afternoon "happy hour", looking out at the jungle and listening to the birds.

Thank you for your review - I appreciate the feedback.

We've replaced the burned out halogen bulbs in the bathroom. They were a special order from the mainland and it took longer than expected to get them replaced. We now have extras in stock.

We just checked out the 2 DVD players and they both worked. We wish that you had called us during your stay so that we could have helped get it working for you and we are available 24 x 7 to help every day of the year. Just call the number that we provide in the condo and in your check-in materials.

The views from this condo are superb! It was like having our own private mountain vista with gorgeous greenery, majestic mountains and stunning waterfalls after the rains... and a few chickens. ;)

Jim has done a superb job in anticipating our needs with tons of little extras. The gift basket was a VERY welcome touch and helped while we oriented ourselves. Little things like dishwasher and laundry detergent, beach chairs, towels & mats, lots of linens, games and video library, and a very useful little library helped. The information folder/binder was immensely helpful and something we'd not seen before. The bedroom setup was excellent. We could sit in bed and watch the flatscreen TV or just enjoy the view. Beautiful lanai that we didn't use nearly enough! In-room laundry and a second bathroom came in very handy.

Beautiful well thought out decor with just enough kitch to bring charm and that "lived in/loved" feeling while being remarkably clean and uncluttered.

We had almost no daytime rain until the next to last day when a tropical storm hit the North Shore dropping 17 inches of rain in Hanalei in 24 hours. Thank God we were on the Princeville side of the Hanalei bridge which got washed out.

All of this in the middle of a beautiful resort with tons of amenities and a incredible private beach walk at remarkable value for the money.

It was an incredible way to start to our honeymoon. We'll definitely be staying here again.

The Hanalei Bay Resort is great for relaxing and offers plenty of options from the huge lagoon style pool, beach, tennis courts and golf. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. HBR is a little tricky to find if you are arriving at night. The North Shore of Kauai is lush and beautiful and being 5 minutes from the town of Hanalei is great plus there are plenty of beaches nearby to explore.

The only complaint is the resident rooster(s) who makes announcements throughout the day amid the other tropical birds which can be irritating to one who is trying to rest or want to focus on the other birds who sign rather than cockle doole doo. Other than that, this is the best alternative to an oceanfront condo.

Fantastic Experience with this Unit and the Resort

This resort offers everything you need to enjoy your stay in Princeville- great service, a fun bar, beautiful landscaped grounds and pools with great views of Hanalie Bay and surrounding mountains.

This unit in particular must be one of the best in the resort. It's very close to parking and check-in (minimizing walking), yet very quiet and very private. The unit is well furnished and has plenty of balcony space for dining and relaxing while looking at spectacular views of the mountains.

There is not a more beautiful place on the planet!! And the condo was perfect. When my wife and I first arrived we were immediately impressed with how generously accommodating the condo was--fully furnished and equipped and beautifully decorated. We felt welcome and at home. It was as if our best friends had made their own place available to us. One thought we had was, "It's too bad we didn't bring the kids." The next morning, however, as we lay in bed and gazed through the wall of windows at the stunningly beautiful view we were so glad to just relax and not have restless kids saying, "So what are we going to do?" It was tempting to go nowhere on the island other than the condo. Just a short walk to the beach, tennis courts, pools, restaurant, close to a grocery store, and just a short drive to spectacular sites. This is a perfect place for a peaceful getaway for a couple, an individual, or even a family.

Our family stayed 4 nights at HBR Condo 1557-58 and wished we could have stayed much, much longer. The owner Jim has put together a simple and cozy place, with thoughtful touches everywhere to make clients feel welcome and comfortable. A helpful guide book, beach amenities, assorted board games, fully equipped kitchen, excellent linens, the list goes on and on. The condo itself is well situated on the resort, not far from the reception area or pool, and has a breathtaking view of the mountains and rainforest. Great terrace from which to admire the view during morning coffee and evening cocktail. It's quiet and well insulated from outside noise...apart from the ubiquitous kauai rooster, that is. Great location, easy to get anywhere on the North Coast. Mahalo to Jim for sharing his wonderful place in paradise.

When we arrived at the Hanalei Bay Resort, we knew exactly where to go so proceeded to our condo. As we live on the south shore of Kauai, we came up weeks prior to our visit to do a preview. The double end unit was quiet and private, which worked out perfectly for us, since we had massages scheduled on the outside lanais. This condo worked out great for the three of us; my husband and I took the master and our niece slept on the murphy bed. We each had our own full bath which was so convenient. The one issue we did have, was the master bath fixture in the shower. It was very difficult to use and get the temperature right, without a lot of fiddling around. The kitchen was very well equipped and had all the cooking utensils we needed. It even had a spice rack, but we were a bit disappointed not to have any salt or pepper. The other complaint we had about the kitchen was the overhead light. It was so hot that we could not use it while we were in the kitchen. Perhaps replacing the bulb with a CFL would solve that problem. Overall, we loved the unit and would stay there again if the opportunity should arise.

Manager Response

Thank you for your comments.

The bath fixtures in both showers have been replaced with new fixtures and shower heads. I've also re-caulked the tub in the master bedroom side.

There is now salt & pepper in the condo as well.

This is the first time that I've had a complaint about the light in the kitchen - it's a 100 watt halogen. We've recently replaced a dimmer switch with a regular switch because the switch was in the way of the refrigerator door. I didn't find it hot while living there six months but if I continue to get complaints I'll put in a dimmer switch again.

The kitchen now has a new very high-end (according to my plumber!) faucet as well.

The indefinite closure of the restaurant and lounge at the Hanalei Bay Resort has been clearly stated on the Aloha Condos Website resort and condo pages since December 2008.

This guest booked in February 2009 and I am sorry that she didn't know about the closure.

The remainder of the resort continues to be maintained and this is the first comment that I've heard to the contrary. When I lived in my condo from July 2008 - February 2009, the level of resort maintenance was the same as I had seen since I bought my condo in 2000.

This unit has a spacious feel inside because of the lay-out. I felt that the unit was a great value for the price when I compared it to other similar units. This place was actually even more reasonable than most units in Ocean City, Maryland near our home (way over priced any more). The view out the deck is quiet with a great garden and mountain view that adds to the private feel of this unit. The Hanalei Bay resort location is an excellent amenity.

The only slight drawback was that we wished it was a little closer walk to the beach, but you can't have it all at this reasonable of a price (it is about a 10 minute walk down the step paved path to the beach).

Overall, an excellent value for the price and amenities.

We stayed in this wonderful condo in last June. The condo was very clean, well equipped and a good location within the resort - close to the tennis courts, main pool and front desk area. It had a well stocked kitchen, and we cooked several nights. The owner thoughtfully provided many videos for the two TVs, beach equipment to use, and had written very thorough island guides for his guests. As we were traveling with our two teenage children, we really enjoyed having two rooms and two baths.

The Hanalei Bay Resort was beautiful and very well maintained. We enjoyed the beach, tennis courts, and pool. We also enjoyed the view of waterfalls from our two balconies. This part of the island was not as crowded as the southern end, which was nice. We would definitely recommend Hanalei Bay Resort and this particular condo again, and look forward to coming again ourselves!
