We had an absolutely fabulous time enjoying your lovely #1305 with its priceless view (and the daily array of rainbows over Hanalei Bay!). We both agreed it was our favorite Kauai stay yet (having stayed at the St. Regis and the Westin on the north and the Sheraton and Kiahuna Plantation on the south). The high ceiling, large balcony and large glass doors make the unit feel very spacious. The king size bed was so comfortable and it was placed to maximize the incredible view. It's fantastic having the Happy Talk bar open now, we ate there twice, and the restaurant is coming along and will be lovely. We look forward to our next visit!
Let me start by saying this a very well maintained condo. The carpeting, furnishings, countertops and appliances are all new. The bedding towels etc. are all high quality. There wasn't anything that we didn't like about the unit. The view is better than any of the photos on line. This unit is obviously part of Hanalei Bay Resort. The grounds, pool and tennis courts are immaculate. The restaurant and bar were not yet completed, but that was not an issue for us. There were food trucks that came on two different nights and Monday is mai tai night around the pool. We bought groceries at Food Land. The prices are a bit high, but we got a discount card and tried to buy only things on special. We considered Costco, but with just two of us it wasn't really necessary. The beach below the resort is very nice. I had read some complaints about the trek up from the beach. It was a bit of a trek but we never needed a ride. I even carried my surfboard down and back. While we were there the best surf at this end of the island was at the reef in front of the resort beach. A rental car is a must. There are so many things to see around the island. We put 400 miles on the car in one week and never even made it to the west side. We will definitely be back. We are already looking at two weeks this fall.
“Perfect getaway with magnificent views of Hanalei Bay”
We really enjoyed our stay at #1305 - it was the perfect location for everything we wanted to do in the North Shore, and we loved the proximity to Princeville and Hanalei Bay. The on-site staff were all welcoming and professional, and your condo was the perfect spot for us to relax during our babymoon. Thank you for providing such a beautiful haven - we hope to come back some day!
“Cozy, Comfortable Room With A View”
My fiance and I stayed in 1305 in late October for a week and had a fantastic time. The view from the room is amazing and it is well situated near the parking lot, lobby, and pool area. The beach is less than a ten minute walk. The lobby was recently completed at the resort and is very well designed - once the restaurant and pool bar are finished there will not be anything missing from a trip to Hanalei Bay. The staff was incredibly friendly every morning, and while we were mostly out and about rather than at the resort, the few times we did hang close to our home base there were good activities - i.e. a food truck, a coconut seller, mai tai night. We were particularly impressed by the small amenities in the room itself - the coffee maker and cooler really came in handy. Plenty of towels and a very comfortable bed made all the difference as well. Would absolutely come again and recommend.
“Amazing views and great north shore location”
Unit #1305 at hanalai bay resort in Princeville exceeded even my high expectations. Top floor unit with vaulted ceilings, kitchenette, close to parking and pool. Everything we needed was provided by Ginnie and made for a very comfortable stay. It also sounds like building 1 construction should be almost done but gives you a reason to leave room (too many things you should be enjoying out and about) if any noise. Will definitely use Ginnie again for our next trip!
“Very Happy at Hanalei Bay Resort #1306”
Hi Ginny, I was looking forward to telling you how much I enjoyed the suite. I fit me perfectly, and of course the resort and the area is beautiful. Wednesday & Thursday were beautiful days. I was out and around the north shore both days. I flew my grand daughter to Kauai Friday evening and back to Maui Sunday afternoon. She loved the resort and Condo, and we had a great time on the north beaches and the National Botanical Garden was a hi point, as well as the lighthouse . The weather Fri, Sat, & Sunday was rain then fog, then mist over & over, so seeing the beauty of Kauai was done only by car. We got quite wet and wilted all day Saturday; however, we were out there seeing as much as we could see. I am so happy I booked with you. I had a beautiful and memorable vacation. If I plan to return, I will be in touch with you as soon as I begin planning. & I will share your information with anyone I know that is thinking of visiting the Islands. As a matter of fact, I will clearly recommend Kauai over Maui. It has lost it's charm for me. Thank you again, Shirley
“Amazing in so many ways!”
The room is gorgeous, with high vaulted ceilings and a galley style kitchen with everything you could possibly need. The bathroom was large with a separate en-suite for the toilet/shower which made for getting ready in the mornings easy breezy with one person showering whilst the other person could be in the sink area getting ready. The view was amazing, so amazing in fact, that we slept with the drapes open, allowing the sun to gently wake us up every morning bright and early. Every night I had a great sleep! We did notice that the resort is under construction in the main lobby area which we could see from our balcony to the left, but fortunately, there didn't seem to be any construction/sounds during our stay. The grounds of the resort were gorgeous and the staff treated us as though we were staying at an all inclusive resort. The only suggestion I would have for the owners is to eventually replace the carpet with tiles, as it's getting a bit worn out. Other than that the room/furniture was beautiful and the decor was fitting for the setting. And lastly, the balcony offered beautiful views, and was a great place for breakfast and for watching the sun go down. Thank you Ginny! We hope to be back one day. Anita & David
Great stay for a couple or a couple with one child. The view from the bed every morning was breathtaking as you see the beautiful palm tree with the ocean in the distance. The location was great! Great area to stay in with beautiful beaches close by and only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. The resort staff was nice and helpful whenever we had questions. We truly enjoyed our stay. Right now there is construction at the resort, if you plan to be out and about all day it works great, but if you plan to stay at the resort, then the sounds of the construction may not be relaxing. Overall is was an excellent stay and fair price that we plan to be back!
“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.
