What Past Guests Are Saying
A tropical paradise, truly a shangri-la experience.
When we arrived the check-in process was easy and quick. Very friendly staff. Parking was convenient throughout our stay. The condo was immaculately clean with beautiful furnishings and colorful decor. Because it's on the 3rd floor there is a postcard perfect view from the lanai as well as the room. The outside wall is all windows. We left the drapes open the entire time we were there. The bed is so comfortable. We enjoyed listening to the night sounds, palm trees swaying and at times drops of occasional rain. There was a good air conditioning system, although with the ocean breezes it was not always needed. The resort beach is great for snorkeling and swimming. The staff was available to transport us to and from the beach by golf carts. It's not a long walk but if you take chairs, cooler, snorkel gear, etc. it's a real plus to hitch a ride. The condo overlooks the gorgeous pool and is beautiful day and night when lit with tiki type torches. The pool is refreshing and the hot tub is heavenly. The condo is equipped with everything we needed. We cooked and enjoyed several meals in. There is a microwave, hot plates, portable toaster type oven, refrigerator, blender, etc, etc.
I can say, this is one of he nicest vacation accommodations I have experienced. I will return. It's apparent that the Richards take pride in maintaining their condo for their vacationing guests. Mahalo!

Exceeded our expectations
Before opting on a condo or villa in Princeville you need to know that the vast majority of what is being offered are really homes in residential areas - they are not part of resort. Your accomodation in Princeville should have fantastic views of the mountains or the ocean and if your lucky both.
That brings me to Hanalei Bay Resort which has everything you want in a resort if you are staying in a condo. Ours was a one bedroom - really more a big bachelor dominated by a king bed, that came with a very good price - $135 a night plus taxes and cleaning fee (which is standard in Hawaii). Unit 1305 at HBR was one of the best deals we have come ascross in some time. I have read other people's complaints about the condition of the units at HBR, but there seems to a common thread - time shares. My advice is book through an owner such as Ginny Richards who owns 1305 and you are far more likely to find a unit that is treated with a little TLC than a time-share which is really a condo without an owner.
The unit was right beside the reception area and overlooked the large pool complex, but it also had a terrific view of the Kauai mountains which changed constantly with the angle of the sun, cloud cover and time of day. Check in was a breeze with no unexpected charges or screwups. The unit was clean, well equipped and although it had no standard stove it had a microwave, a portable convection unit and a large George Foreman so cooking wasn't a problem. No dishwasher was no big deal and a laundry room was a minute away. Firing up the laptop it turned out there were multiple Hanalei Bay Resort wireless hotspots that you could connect to for free.
It has a terrific pool which is not only large, but designed to blend in with the surroundings. It has waterfalls, a small almost hidden beach area where two people can pretend they are at the real thing and a hot tub which was well used during our stay.
We spent a week at #1305 and would go back in a heartbeat.

We had a fabulous stay in condo #1305. It has such fantastic views. The palm, the bay, the majestic mountains with their occasional waterfalls. The condo is located on the top floor and consequently is much more spacious with the high ceilings than the lower floors. By being on the top floor it picks up the incrediable views. (be sure to rent a top floor unit).
We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast and dinners on the lanai while being awestruck by the views and the birds singing. We would then grab the beach chairs and the ice chest and take off each day for a new adventure coming back for a mid afternoon to take a dip in the beautiful natural salt water pool.
The condo is squeaky clean and nicely furnished. You can lay in the comfortable king size bed and enjoy the views without even moving. The place is very equipped for a studio. It is conveniently located within the resort and is very close to parking.
The beaches on the north shore are incrediable. We dream of our return to paradise and will definitely stay in #1305 Hanalei Bay Resort on our next visit, which can't come soon enough.

Quiet and Relaxing
Our first trip to Kauai was wonderful. We stayed in this studio, which is lovely. It is very small but has a lovely lanai with a view of the resort below. The restaurant, which used to be on site, burned down a year ago. Be aware that this is on the third floor so you will have some stairs to climb with luggage, groceries etc. It is very close to the lobby as well. It is very clean and has all you need for a great visit. Foodland is the only place to buy food and is very pricey...but, what the heck, you are in paradise. You share a beach with the St Regis and it is a nice enough beach but don't buy a glass of wine, at the St Regis, because their prices are prohibitive (for really bad wine). We would take the beach chairs from the condo down to that beach, in the evening, to watch the sunset. It is a bit of a walk but you can call for a golf cart to pick you up if you wish. All in all the perfect vacation.

Peaceful retreat in paradise
I just wanted to let you know that Larry and I had a wonderful time in Kauai. Your condo was great and the view from the balcony was magnificent. The location on the North Shore with the mountains and bay was breathtaking and on a clear day the waterfall could be seen from the balcony. The island is definitely nature at its best. We were constantly in awe of the beauty at each different shore. We did not get in all that we wanted to do in a week (which means we will have to come back). We did do some hiking, including the Kalalau Trail which was awesome, a canyon trail hike, visit to the Secret Lava Pools, Smith's Luau, helicopter tour. We loved the snorkeling at nearby Tunnels beach, enjoyed the great fish tacos at Hanalei Gourmet on Thursday night and the Farmer's Market on Saturday. Between the two of us we took 2300 photos! We will definitely share the info on your condo with friends and family and we are already talking about visiting again with our daughter.

Excellent accommodations, with a wonderful view of Hanalei Bay and Bali Hai. Close to front of the resort, which minimizes need for long walks to units otherwise located.
We had a fantastic time in this condo! Ginny was very caring and personable, and made sure we were enjoying everything. The condo itself was made with much love, its very well taken care of, and the interior is very tasteful and warm. It was a quiet area, and we had a stunning view of the ocean and the mountains. So everything was great with the condo itself and how well Ginny took care of us. The staff working around Hanalei Bay were friendly, except some of the women at the front desk. By a few of them, we werent treated very nicely, which was so surprising and a little dissapointing. But because everything else was so wonderful, it was so worth staying with Ginny, and we will be back!! ( and we adored Restaurant Infigos, thanks again for the tip ) Mahalo
Incredible Views over looking the Bay
We had a fantastic vacation this November staying at the Hanalei Bay Resort in unit # 1305. The condo was fabulous and meticulously maintained. The views were incredible- with Palm trees swaying, overlooking the bay, and waterfalls coming down the mountains in the back round.
This unit is on the top floor with high ceilings and seemed much more spacious then where our friends stayed. It was also really convenient to be near the parking and not having to hike up the hill.We can't wait to return to Kauai and stay at the Richards' unit again.
Beautiful Kauai Condo!
This condo was beautiful and definitely exceeded my expectations! Perfect size for a couple. My husband and I were very happy there. (Obviously, because we stayed an extra day!) The view is exquisite and it was so wonderful to wake up to that view every morning. It was also very quiet and peaceful. I have been showing friends and family my photos and would definitely recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a quiet place to stay on Kauai.
Thank you to the owners for the hospitality and for sharing their condo with travelers like us.

Wonderful Vacation in Hanalei Bay Resort #1305
We sure loved our stay in your lovely condo #1305. I can't tell you how relaxing it was just sitting out on your lanai having breakfast drinking our Kona Coffee looking out over the beautiful views of the Bay. What a view! The unit was well equipped with everything we needed. We could hear the calming waves at night and never slept better.
We played tennis almost everyday and thought the views from the tennis court must be some of the most beautiful in the world. I took many pictures of the grounds and the beautiful surroundings to share with friends. We definitely will be back again next year.
This was our first trip to Kauai and we are already planning our trip back for next year. We had every thing that we needed and wanted. Dick and Ginny's condo 1305 was definitely our first choice. It was everything that we could have asked for. The king size bed was heavenly and so comfy, we slept like babies. The resort was amazing, we have never had such a relaxing holiday. Can't wait to return.

Exceeded our expectations; heavenly and perfect!
Dear Ginny & Dick,
Thank you so much for allowing us to be guests in your fabulous condo. We loved everything, from the roosters' call at sunrise to every gorgeous sunset! We slept very soundly in your luxurious king bed, your island decor is perfect and your bathroom tile inspired us to remodel our bathroom in a similar style. And the lovely lanai - wow! We would've sat there forever staring in awe at the spectacular view of the lush mountains & heavenly Hanalei Bay, breathing in the warm trade winds,watching the swaying palms, listening to the live music from bar (what a bonus!) & seeing billions of stars, even the Milky Way at night. The walk down to the beach was great, the pool, the gardens & HBR friendly staff made our stay more than pleasurable... Hanalei Gourmet..Delicious! We ate there twice, including Fish Taco night! We have fallen head over heels for the paradise that is Kauai's North Shore and after a day of hiking, strolling and exploring and boating, it was a warm welcome home in which to return. I could "gush" forever.. Mahalo, a million times over!
Sincerely, Lynn & Bill
