Spring break retreat
We greatly enjoyed our stay at this condo, which is well suited for a family with 2 king bed rooms and bathrooms plus kitchen, dining, and living areas. The two queen beds upstairs in the loft were perfect for our boys. It is very nicely... more appointed with modern appliances and comfortable furnishings. We also appreciated the beach toys and chairs made available in the front closet. My only and greatest complaint is that even though we took great care of the condo during our stay by keeping it clean, the property manager still decided to charge against our deposit claiming that it took more than usual time to clean. We felt this was unfair and unwarranted given that there was nothing damaged or unusual to clean. Beware of this property because they may try to unfairly keep your security deposit for ordinary cleaning services. less

Aloha Meghan, Thank you for taking the time to send in your comments in response to our request for the unit 7307/8 at the Hanalei Bay Resort. We are glad you enjoyed the condo and all it had to offer and you found it to be updated and very accommodating. Regarding your comments about the extra cleaning fees, we do give a good portion of time allotted to clean this unit. Our staff did inform us of the extra time needed to complete this condo after your departure over and beyond the normal. Our policies do state that if the clean takes longer then the alloted time, a charge will apply accordingly. With the multiple condos we represent and this policy applying to all of them, it is very rare that we have to apply this fee. Because it is extremely rare, we feel charging the guest individually is what is fair instead of raising the standard cleaning fee for all guests that leave the condo in the standard condition. We might also mention that only a small portion of the security deposit was retained and the rest released as scheduled.
Most beautiful view
This condo was perfect for us and our four teenage granddaughters. The units were very clean and inviting. The upstairs loft was great for the girls and the bedrooms were large and bright. The view was the best, with beautiful sunsets and early morning rainbows.... more It is close to the small pool and bbq area, so that was handy. The walk up to the large pool and parking lot was a bit of a hike, but the staff will come pick you up in a golf cart. Our only complaint was the lack of lounger or comfortable chairs on the lanai. Instead there are tall tables with high seats, not very comfortable for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view. Maybe this is something the owimay consider changing. Unit has been recently upgraded and we would definitely return to this property. This was our fourth trime staying at HBR and it is definitely our favorite property on Kauai. less

Aloha Kevin, Thank you for review and all the kind words about the unit 7307-08 at the Hanalei Bay Resort. It is a wonderful condo and with the more recent remodel, it is stunning! You are right about the incredible views too! The owner is in the process of purchasing some loungers for the lanais. The high table that exist are desired too because it put you in the sight line over the railing. We do hope you can return again and enjoy the condo!
Nicely appointed, updated and spacious condo! Top level unit made for great views of Hanalei Bay. Not a big deal but there were a couple minor issues with unit (TV/Cable was not working and shower curtain in one of the bathrooms would not stay up).... more We will definitely consider staying here again if we return to Kauai in future less

Aloha John, Thank you for your review for the unit 7307/08 at the Hanalei Bay Resort. This unit is beautifully appointed and was remodeled in Dec of 2016 from top to bottom plus the loft being added to allow for more usable space! As you mention the views are indescribable and are what memories are made of. We wish you would have called us about the TV cable as it is in working order. The cable remote and the TV remote both have to be used and sometimes it needs to be reset. We could have helped you with that as well as the shower curtain. The tension shower rods only take a twist of the rod to apply the correct pressure to keep the rod in place. We could have adjusted that for you also if you would have let us know. We are here to help with anything that might come up. We are happy to hear you would like to return and we certainly hope you will.
Ohana Celebration Trip (graduations)
The location ("Banana" building), and views towards Hanalei Bay and the Pacific Ocean were wonderful. The unit is in need of repairs (bedroom drawers, screen doors, bathroom door, etc). It's a unit that has probably had the same carpet and furnishings for a long period... more of time. That said...the resort, location, & views are something we are looking forward to coming back to. This place needs some things fixed and some refurbishing, but it didn't bother us much. We had a great time. less
— Kelly, Stayed 07/05/2016
Aloha, Thank you for posting your review and expressing your desire to come back. The good news is that this unit has been completely renovated from top to bottom! The transformation is amazing! New furnishing, new paint, new interior paint, new trim and interior doors, new floors, a brand new kitchen, and bathrooms as well as an expansion of the space with a loft that was added. All of this and the incredible views remain the cherry on top! Please do come back and you will be amazed!!!
We loved this resort so much that we returned six months later and brought our family. The grounds are beautiful, pool and hot tub fantastic, love the waterfalls, and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Both condos we stayed in had fantastic views of... more the bay and mountains and with ever changing weather and sunsets you never get tired of looking. We love the option every day of walking down to the beach to swim, snorkel, kayak, or take a short drive for good boogie board waves. I'm planning a trip back as soon as I can. We look forward to the new pool bar and restaurant! less

Aloha Thank you for the glowing review for the Hanalei Bay Resort unit 7307/08. This unit does have very special views of the mountains, the bay and the ocean. Of course the sunsets from the lanai are an added bonus. The third floor level just opens up that views even more. The resort is in a perfect location and with the direct beach access it makes it special above other Princeville accommodations. We hope to see you in the near future!
Awesome Hanalei Bay Resort Unit
We met the owners of this unit on a previous visit to the resort and they invited us to see their unit. We loved the unit and the views and booked our next trip to their unit. The views of Hanalei Bay and the mountains... more are breathtaking! The property has 2 pools and many activities as well as it is only minutes to 2 of the best golf courses on Kauai. The unit is very well furnished and has a washer and dryer. The unit even has beach gear including snorkel equipment. The owners also made the booking very easy and were very accommodating and followed up with us upon our arrival to make sure everything was satisfactory. We would definitely recommend booking this unit because of the location, views and the hospitality of the owners. less

Beautiful View of Hanalei Bay
We stayed in HBR #7307 - 8 from June 7th 0 13, 2013. From the first moment we walked thru the door and saw the magnificant views of Hanalei Bay and the mountains, we loved the place, especially the lanai. The unit(s) was comfortable and... more had great beach toys such as snorkels, coolers, beach towels, fins, chairs, etc. so we didn't have to rent those. While the unit hasn't been upgraded, it was "beach" comfortable and the beds were also comfortable. Unit was also very clean and quiet. Location is near the second pool and the main pool and tennis courts were a short walk away. We would definitely stay in this unit again. less

A condo with a heavenly view awaits you here.
We had a wonderful, relaxing time staying at this condo. It was so large and roomy, and we spent hours lounging on the lanai enjoying the amazing view. Everything was very comfortable- from the furnishings, to the beach accessories, to the wonderful movie collection, and... more the well stocked kitchen. We loved falling asleep at night to the sound of the ocean, while the cool breeze drifted through the screen. The resort is just beautiful, and we would love to visit again one day. It truly is a slice of heaven. less

What a View!
We spent four nights in this HBR property perched on the Princeville Bluffs. It's a lovely, spacious, comfortable vacation rental with *unparalleled* views of Bali Hai. Situated on the top floor of the building, the condo was quiet and peaceful. It's decorated in the "Island... more Style:" large, comfortable bamboo furniture, classic Hawaiian knick-knacks, roomy four-poster beds. There's even a darling silk palm tree in the living room! The kitchen is well-appointed, allowing us to cook and dine "at home" during our stay -- there's nothing like getting fresh fish to grill on one of the outdoor barbecues situated near the unit. The owners have provided lots of amenities, including beach gear and tennis rackets. Our favorite activity was lounging on the lanai, sipping wine, nibbling on pupus, and watching the sunset over Bali Hai. Compared with the expensive neighboring hotel boasting the same views, this condo was a fabulous bargain. The morning we left, the sight of a double rainbow over Hanalei Bay made us want to stay on Kauai forever! less

— George, Stayed 03/27/2012
Thank you for staying in our condo. We are glad you enjoyed all our special efforts to provide everything to make your stay wonderful. Yes the views from the lanai of Hanalei Bay are incredible! Our carpet is a natural sisal, recently chosen to lend that tropical island feel. We provide wonderful & comfortable couches, divans and chaises for sitting, lounging, watching movies filmed on Kauai, or just gazing at the beautiful view. We hope you will stay again. Aloha, Holly Laughlin, owner
well laid out condo with everything we needed and great service from the resort staff

Awesome Stay in Condo at Hanalei Bay Resort
We made reservations with Chuck to stay in one of the condos that were left online for the Christmas 2010 season. After being told by all other places that we needed at 7 night minimum, we finally came across this condo. Chuck was awesome. I... more did however have reservations about why this one was not booked even after looking at the great photos online. However, once we got to Hanalei Bay Resort and into the condo, wow, it was totally awesome!! We had two rooms, 7307 and 7308. It was large enough for our family of 6, had a great view of the Bay, clean, furniture was fantastic. There was even bookie boards, snorkeling gear, chairs, and even a foam ice chest. Our whole family was very very happy with the condo and the resort. We would definitly go back there in a heart beat and recommend the condo and Hanalei Bay Resort to everyone. less

Nice place with old cottage feel, but dirty apon arrival.
Positives: This condo is large, has a very nice view of Bali Hai and the sunset every night, has a kind of cottage/cabin feel. Negatives: The one complaint about the staff, condo owner, or manager? (i'm not sure whose responsibility this would fall on) would... more be, we checked in early (which may have been part of the reason, but shouldn't have mattered) but our room definitely wasn't cleaned for a long time. If any they did the bare minimum. There was sand everywhere near the entrance, a dead 6" centipede behind the blinds, mirrors and windows had greasy hand and face marks, the balcony was definitely not swept, the netting above the bead had a lot of dust and dead bugs. We spent our entire first night there cleaning in order to feel comfortable staying there. So this definitely was not the good first impression we we're hoping for after staying in a beautiful new place in Maui the week prior. I would recommend it but make sure it's been cleaned properly, and complain if not. We never did because we could easily just clean it to meet our standards in the same amount of time. Hopefully this changes for future renters of this condo. less
— sheeple3, Stayed 11/07/2010
We are so sorry, and apologize for the huge inconvenience, but only wish you had called to report the problem. Maid services always check a unit and do a cleaning when the unit has been empty for a period prior to the new booking. Since the guests had checked in early, the maids subsequently did not disturb the guests. Again, our apologies, and we have set safeguards in order to prevent this occurrence in the future. Aloha, Holly Laughlin, Owner, Hanalei Bay Resort, Condo 7307-08
Another perfect stay at Hanalei Bay!
This is our second year renting this condo at Hanalei Bay Resort, and it was even better than we had remembered! You have the best view of Hanalei Bay and a Bali Hai sunset on the property! The condo itself is impeccably clean and tastefully... more decorated, with enough tables and chairs on the balcony for the whole family to enjoy. Located right next to the peaceful round pool and the updated outdoor kitchen and grill area--perfect for an evening dip and BBQ (pick up the fresh fish downtown at the Dolphin)! We tell all our family and friends, if you're going to Kauai, this is the place to stay! We'll be visiting again next year. less

Breathtaking Sunsets of Bali Hai every evening
The views are beyond imaginable and the condo has every necessity we could think of. The condo was so well maintained and clean. The decorations were tasteful and complemented the Hawaiian spirit! I can not think of a single complaint regarding this condo. The view... more of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai are seriously unbelievable! Sunsets only got better each night we stayed here! Thanks for the wonderful vacation stay! Definitely returning!! less

Unplug and gaze at the Bay and rainbows
If you are looking for action and entertainment, do not come here. If you want to relax and unwind in beauty and quietness, unpack your bags and enjoy. The remotenessand tranquility was perfect juju for us. It is with mixed feelings I have that the... more Resort is hurting by not having a dining and bar available - but it really keeps it all less active and quiet (a good thing !) I just cannot say enough about the quietness - except for the Kauai offical bird...The units are comfortable and well-equipped, with exceptional ambience. The staff are very accomodating and eager to please. These units are an exceptional value and are bargain priced for everything you get. We will be back!!! less

Spectacular View of Bali Hai and Hanalei Bay
From the moment we walked into the condo, we knew it was spectacular. The view from the Lanai overlooking the mountains of Bali Hai and Hanalei Bay was just spectacular. The condo was very well equipped with beach towels, snorkeling gear, beach equipment, tennis rackets... more and all the kitchen supplies. All the family loved the beautiful pool and tennis courts. The Happy Talk Lounge was perfect for evening glasses of wine overlooking Bali Hai. Thank you very much. We had a wonderful time. Mary less

gorgeous views, but dated resort
The condo was very nice, with fantastic views of Hanalei Bay. It was well equipped and comfortable. The resort had some issues, the small pool near the condo was not usable, the spa was broken, the restaurant and bar were closed for renovations and the... more beach was not very nice and right next to ongoing renovation/construction at the neighboring Princeville hotel. less

Thank you for your review and staying in our lovely condo. We are sorry that the small pool and spa were not usable during your stay. They are now repaired and working. We are sorry for the inconvenience. We do hope you enjoyed the other large tropical pool at the resort with waterfalls. The Happy Talk Lounge was re-opened on July 13, 2009, but the restaurant is still closed. The major renovation of the Princeville Hotel converting it to a luxurious St. Regis Hotel is scheduled to be complete in October 2009. The NE corner of the two-mile crescent-shaped Hanalei Bay Beach that we share with the Princeville St Regis Hotel is great for snorkeling, swimming, exploring, and relaxing. In October 2009, it will return to the incredible beauty that earned it the #1 spot on "Dr. Beach" Stephen P. Leatherman's 2009 list of top 10 beaches. He has compiled the list annually since 1991.
Great retreat. Wonderful views.
This rental was spectacular. The location is minutes from Hanalei Bay and the ocean. It is a nice resort and the unit has everything you could want: well stocked kitchen, comfortable bed, great view from the lanai, videos and books that feature the area, tennis... more courts, a beautiful pool and spa and much more. The resort will drive you to your car if you request a golf cart, so you don't have to exert yourself too much. I loved it and highly recommend it. less
