LAST MINUTE DEALS (AUG 5-10)

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Hanalei - Hanalei Bay Resort 4222

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

***Recently remodeled Bali Hai view condo***

ANNIVERSARY?...LANDMARK BIRTHDAY?...HONEYMOON?

GRADUATION? FAMILY REUNION? WEDDING GROUP?

JUST NEED TO GET AWAY FOR SOME FUN & RELAXATION?

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, bar and restaurant 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.

This sought after and popular condo, recommended frequently on YELP, can be rented as a ONE BEDROOM (4222) or two bedroom that sleeps up to 7 (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 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, 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.

Lobby/fitness center closed and under renovations. Due to reopen summer 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.

2014 rate: $260/nt plus tax and cleaning

I HAD A LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION FOR AUGUST. JUST $210/NT FOR AUGUST 5-10

ALSO, we DO NOT ask you to wire any money, so if you are asked to wire money to anyone it is more than likely a scam! WE TAKE MOST MAJOR CREDIT CARDS AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.

Reviews

-----------------

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.

Hi Joan I am sitting on your lanai and can't believe what I am seeing - it's so beautiful we are all blown away by the view! Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in paradise!





Thanks again.

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

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.

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.

WONDERFUL RETREAT ON THE NORTH SHORE!

  • 5 out of 5
A wonderful, refreshing, clean, updated unit with an amazing view! Thanks and kudos to Joan! Beautifully decorated, she really provides a charming retreat, that is cozy, yet quite spacious, to experience the enchanting Garden Isle. The balcony is a huge benefit with multiple vantage points of the bay, the mountains, the gardens and yes, the roosters! The resort layout is really unique and exquisitely landscaped. The main pool is an oasis with waterfalls, tiki huts and torches, and lined with a remarkable slate tile that conveys a relaxing elegance. Outdoor fire pit and couches enhance the sunset view as well. Also, plenty of tennis courts for the sport enthusiast. The resort has a convenient golf cart service that will transport you to the beach area (quite a hike on foot) or to your condo if you have groceries. The staff is johnny-on-the-spot and provide exceptional customer service. The relaxing beach is shared with the St. Regis. We can't wait to return to Kauai one day and stay here again! Aloha & Roll Tide! ;)

WONDERFUL LOCATION, FRIENDLY AND COURTEOUS OWNER, NICE REMODELED UNIT

  • 4 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this Hanalei Bay Resort unit, which recently received a modern kitchen and bathroom remodel. The owner's pictures are very accurate regarding the views from the lanai (gorgeous sunrise, daytime, and sunset views), the short walk (< 5 mins) to the beach shared with the St. Regis, and the friendly staff at the resort.
The unit has a well-stocked kitchen (pots, pans, glasses, dishes, appliances), and many beach items for guests to borrow and return. If you want a mellow place to stay to get your Aloha on, you really can't go wrong here.
Our only reasons for not rating this 5-stars at this time:
We paid a higher rate than for other units in the resort for this really nice condo, but the resort is still undergoing extensive renovations -- including the restaurant (which would have been really lovely for convenience) and construction in units above this one, which contributed to noise throughout the day. Once those are completed, we'd be hard-pressed to find a reason to rate it anything lower then 4.5-5 stars.

Bottom line: We'd rent this unit and rent from this owner again.

The privately condo with remodeling being done near my building was completed in early December.

HEAVEN SCENT HIDEOUT IN HANALEI

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we drove onto the property we knew we had landed in the lap of luxury and elegance--- yet with all of the comforts of home. The condo was amazing: seriously up-to-date , comfortable and well stocked. But the real gift was in the spectacular view of the waterfall, the wonderful walking trails where one can stop and take photos of their favorite flowers and other greenery in the impeccable gardens of Hanalei Bay Resort. I particularly appreciated the owner, Joan, for taking such an interest in what activities and day trips would be perfect for my husband and I. I was shocked to find out that the best snorkeling ever was right there at the beach of 4222. Joan recommended and we thoroughly enjoyed the fern grotto boat trip, the farmer's market, the Luau, and the free hula show at the shopping center! She also recommended specific restaurants and they were perfect. At the end of the day, one need not spend very much money, as the real gift is the ambiance of the Garden Island of Hawaii. We really made memories and look forward to making more!

SHOULD BE 4 1/2!

  • 4 out of 5
We've been going to Kauai for years so we feel we know the island pretty well. We've stayed in many different places from condos to private homes to hotels in all price range. We've stayed on all sides except the west and NS hands down is our favorite, any time of the year. Though we break up the stays between NS and SS in the rainier winter months, NS is where we wanted to be the whole time we were there in September. I think it rained more than usual for September but the views from our condo was simply stunning. So glad we chose HBR. The best thing going for the condo is the view. I know some of the condos are supposed to have better views and I might look into in the future but maybe not. I'm looking forward to the bathroom remodel because that is one area where it fell little short. But I know the owner has plans in modernizing it. The only other negative for me and my husband personally are the artificial trees and plants. I know this being a vacation rental, keeping live flowers and plants...well, live, is difficult. Still, I'd rather decorate with something else or nothing at all. Vases would be nice so that I could use it to put my own flowers in it from the farmers market. But like I said, this is a personal taste thing. Other than that, everything else was great! The bed was super comfy and I never thought I'd appreciate this so much, but the air conditioning was much, much appreciated! We didn't use it every day but the days we did, the quick cooling off was heavenly! The 2 Monday nights we were there, we never made it to the Mai Tai meet and greet. We were too busy having fun elsewhere. We walked where we could within Princeville. We walked to Hideaways just about everyday. Snorkeling was really good there. Saw many turtles. We were lucky to see a monk seal there once. Such a small beach, it was nice to see everyone give the seal its' space. Walk to Queen's Bath was pleasant and fun. Spent couple days/evening on the St. Regis beach where the sunsets were also amazing. My 2 best sunset shots ever are from our lanai @ HBR and St. Regis beach. Other than that, between hanging and dining in Hanalei, hiking to Hanakapiai Falls, snorkeling @ Tunnels and kayaking, the 11 days went by way too fast. Favorite dinner spot is still BarAcuda and a new find is Kauai Ono. Of course one of our favorites was having pupus and drinks on the lanai.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing my island home when I know you have so many options of places to stay on the North Shore.
The bathroom and kitchen remodel will be completed by November 20th, 2013. I can't wait to show you the pictures so you can see the even more improved condo with travertine tile, exotic granites and bamboo cabinets.
I am sorry you did not see the vases. There is one under the bathroom vanity and two in the cabinet above the stove. I always enjoy fresh flowers when I am visiting the island too. The local farmer's markets and honor stands that dot the island are a wonderful way to bring in the outside to the condo. Live plants tend to make a dirty smell to the interior (and a bug issue) and therefore I got rid of them and they were replaced with artificial trees and plants as most owners have done to bring a more tropical fee to the units. I'm sorry it was not to your liking and completely understand that we can't please everyone.
Again thank you for the opportunity to show you HBR and the terrific views it has to offer from my island home.
Mahalo,
Bill and Joan Bettencourt

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 out of 5
The condo was very nice with a beautiful view! Joan/owner was just great and made everything so easy. I have used VRBO many times and this was one of my best experiences. Everything was very clean, the kitchen was well stocked - even a salad spinner!! The view from the terrace was just incredible and relaxing - not just the view to the water, mountains, waterfalls, sailboats, and paddle boarders - but also the beautifully landscaped and lush grounds.

I can't wait to go back when I can stay longer!

RETURN AGAIN AND AGAIN

  • 5 out of 5
In the last few years, we have stayed in here anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks...during November, June, February, and April...we have come to know it well. We have seen it in so many different circumstances!...but one thing remains the same - this is a truly wonderful unit and resort in which to breathe in the beauty that is Kauai. It is a place to return to.
The view is stunning!...and you see it from the moment you walk in the door. You have that same view in the bedroom, too! The lanai is large and stretches from the bedroom to the livingroom and looks directly over Hanalei Bay to Bali Hai. It is breath-taking....I have a gazillion pictures of it that I can't resist taking EVERY time we are there! It never stops being fresh and new.
The unit is beautifully, comfortably furnished. The dining table always looks tropically gorgeous - a lovely touch...the living room has complete comfort. There is enjoyable artwork. The furniture is solidly built as well as attractive. Good sound system and selection of music and movies.
The bedroom has a beautiful carved chest of drawers, as well as night table, etc. The King Bed is incredibly comfortable. And what a delight to look out at the Bay and Bali Hai from the bed as the sun rises over the mountains! The kitchen is very well-equipped, the appliances are brand new stainless steel. The lanai has attractive teak furniture we particularly like.
Through the years I have had some issues with the internet connections here. If I'm not mistaken, they have a new provider and system in place by now and that situation should be resolved. That was the only drawback worth mentioning we experienced within the unit.
The resort has lush tropical grounds. The paths can be steep, not ideal for anyone with serious knee issues. The resort does provide a (golf) cart service, though that will take you both to and from your unit (particularly useful to EVERYONE when checking in and out). It also will take you down to the beach and bring you back up. My family loved walking to the beach - I took the cart most times (knees). It all worked well.
This unit has it all - view, comfort, style AND a great owner. Joan is responsive, helpful and a tremendous resource for all things Kauai. Very professional. Very much committed to her guests' comfort and enjoyment. The pictures on the listing are accurate, but can not compare to the reality. It is a unit very easy to recommend. And we do!

The good news is the resort has installed free internet for all guests at no charge and this system should be a big improvement over the other internet service that experienced so many problems.
Mahalo and I look forward to your return.
