If you are looking for the perfect tropical destination on the North Shore of Kauai, this is it. Overlooking Hanalei Bay with views of Bali Hai (Mt Makana), Hanalei Bay Resort 4222 is special! Hanalei Bay Resort has always been regarded as one of the top resorts to stay on the North Shore of Kauai and in 2014 it is getting even better with an entire new lobby area (Sept), bar and restaurant to open in winter, plus fitness center and hospitality room with big screen TV and kitchen for all to use. Stroll along 22 acres of tropical landscaping and quiet orchid lined paths. Sit on the lanai and witness some of the most beautiful sunsets you've ever seen. After a light rain, the rainbows will dance off the bay. Even though the sunsets from my lanai are out of this world, do visit the fire pit area and enjoy the views with other guests.
This sought after and popular condo, recommended frequently on travel review sites, can be rented as a ONE BEDROOM (4222) or two bedroom that sleeps up to 6 (4221/2). ONE OF THE FEW CONDOS AT HBR WITH AIR CONDITIONING IN BOTH BEDROOMS and a new system in the living room which is extra quiet. I even have a child's cot and porta crib for the little ones. Beautifully remodeled kitchen with exotic green granite from Brazil and bamboo cabinets. Bathroom completely redone with walk in shower, travertine tile floors, granite counter top and spa like vessel sink.
Pu'u Poa Beach and The St Regis Hotel are below via a paved path. Bell service can drive you down or back up if you don't want the the 5 minute stroll. (THIS IS THE BEACH IN THE MOVIE 'THE DESCENDANTS') Other top beaches are within 10-25 minutes as well as numerous activities (zipline, golf, horseback riding, surfing, SUP, kayaking, hiking, garden tours, farmer's markets and mini golf are all close by) and dining in the towns of Hanalei and Princeville are so convenient. My favorite restaurants are Kauai Grill at The St Regis Hotel for that extra special occasion dinner, and BarAcuda in Hanalei for tapas and cocktails (and Hollywood star sightings ). Poolside mai tai reception every Monday evening (free), Wednesday is food truck day where you can purchase homemade lunches by the pool, activity discounts to the 2 golf courses nearby, golf cart transportation to your room, around the resort and the beach, and a world class tennis program. Come for tennis cardio classes and I supply the rackets.
Fitness center closed and under renovations. Due to reopen late Sept 2014
Bar and Restaurant closed for remodeling and not open until further notice
**I have lowered the nightly rate from $275 to $260/nt because of ongoing construction of the restaurant in 2014. ***** Book now for 2015 and I will honor the 2014 rate.

You'll find condos for less, but its not the best!

Besides saying that we will never regret choosing Kauai as our Hawaiian island of choice for our (hopefully not) once-in-a-lifetime vacation...my husband both agree that this condo unit 4222 under Joan Bettencourt's ownership was a wise gamble.
From the moment we stepped into the beautiful open-air lobby we just felt like we were dreaming and this whole vacation had to be too good to be true! It wasn't. The condo was beyond our expectations. It not only had updated furniture, but it was SO clean. Not just surface clean, but the comforters were clean...which is always a huge indicator for me of a quality vacation rental. The bed was very comfortable, our sleep was so solid.
Something that stood out as well was the fact she made sure there were AC units in both the bedroom and living room. We are AC dependent, living in a tropical area ourselves, so when most rental companies told us in Kauai the ocean breezes are so strong you don't need it, we went back and forth in deciding. We went in May and let me tell you, it does make a difference. We didn't know how good we had it until we left. We had a vacation rental directly on the ocean in Poipu and were miserable as far as the heat goes with no AC. So if you are a little more sensitive to heat it may be something to consider.
The grounds were perfect, the beach you can walk to was gorgeous and the pool area was fantastic!
Joan was easy to work with and she was extremely helpful in every way.

About Joan Bettencourt
My dreams came true when we bought our paradise home in 2005. I truly want you to love Kauai and the North Shore as much as I do.
Joan Bettencourt purchased this condo in 2005
Why Joan Bettencourt chose Hanalei
Kauai is magical. You will never want to leave. When I walked in 4221/2 for the first time 33 years ago and saw Bali Hai in front of me, I knew this was paradise. We bought the condo we stayed in on our honeymoon!
What makes this condo unique
The sunsets from the lanai will take your breathe away. The lagoon style pool with sandy bottom and waterfalls surrounding it is so peaceful and relaxing. Our staff knows what aloha means.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had such a magical time in Kauai that it's hard to adjust to life at home again. Your condo and HBR added greatly to our enjoyment of the North Shore. To tell you the truth, it was hard to leave the condo every day for our planned outings because we loved it there so much! The entire condo was spotless when we arrived and we made tropical fruit smoothies every day in the beautiful new kitchen. We watched "South Pacific" one night and kept pinching ourselves that we were in that very location. We also really appreciated the air conditioning since we don't do well with heat and humidity coming from the Pacific Northwest.
The resort staff could not have been nicer and more accommodating, especially Ryan and Kaipo giving us rides with our groceries and to the beach below. The grounds were amazing and everyone we spoke to there was so kind and friendly. When we checked into the Kauai Beach Resort for our last night before an early flight home, I could not help but contrast the small, cramped hotel room (roaches too) with your beautiful condo amid such lush surroundings and a view to die for.
We will absolutely be telling our friends and family about HBR 4222.
It has been a pleasure from start to finish working with you, Joan, and I hope we will have the good fortune to return to your piece of paradise again.
