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

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)


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 condo complexes to stay on the North Shore of Kauai (RANKED #2 ON TRAVEL SITES) and in 2014 it got even better with an entire new lobby area, fitness center, conference center and a fire pit area for sunset viewing. Opening soon is our all new palapa poolside bar. Stroll along 22 acres of tropical landscaping and quiet orchid lined paths. Sit on the lanai of 4222 and witness some of the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see. Play tennis on the newly resurfaced courts including 4 artificial turf courts. Our tennis resort was named one of the top 50 tennis facilities in the WORLD. Bali Hai views are from every room in 4222 not just your lanai like so many other units. When you first walk in, you will be wowed, I promise. After a light rain in the morning the rainbows will dance off the bay. The sunsets you will experience are like at no other location.

This sought after and popular condo, recommended frequently on travel review sites (just google Hanalei Bay Resort 4222 and you will see), can be rented as a ONE BEDROOM that sleeps 3 (4222) or two bedroom that sleeps up to 5/6 comfortably(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 and extra cool. Beautifully remodeled kitchen with exotic green granite from Brazil and bamboo cabinets. All new stainless steel appliances and everything you need in a fully stocked kitchen. The bathroom was completely remodeled with a walk in/glass enclosed shower, travertine tile floors, granite counter top and spa like vessel sink. New bedding and artwork was also added to give it that colorful tropical feel everyone desires when traveling to Hawaii.

Pu'u Poa Beach and The St Regis Hotel are below via a paved path near the newly resurfaced lower tennis courts. Bell service can drive you down and back up after an afternoon of snorkeling or kayaking.

Rent kayaks from our activity center at the pool and it will be waiting for you at Puu Poa Beach. Other top beaches like Anini, Hideaways and Lumahai are within 10-25 minutes, as well as many activities (zipline, golf, horseback riding, surfing, SUP, kayaking, hiking, garden tours, farmer's markets and mini golf), and dining in the towns of Hanalei and Princeville are so convenient. My favorite restaurants are BarAcuda in Hanalei for tapas and cocktails (and Hollywood star sightings) and Lighthouse Bistro in the cute town of Kilauea. Poolside mai tai reception every Monday afternoon at HBR's upper pool (free).

Activity discounts and restaurant suggestions are offered through our onsite concierge, golf cart transportation to your room, around the resort and the beach below, and a world class tennis program right on the property with 4 synthetic grass courts and 4 hard courts (I supply the rackets and that saves you $20/day) are all part of staying at this resort.

HBR is a top wedding location. We have our own personal wedding planner so please inquire if you need her information.

Please ask if you see a day or two open in between another reservation and that is all you need. Call me if you have problems inputting your request or hit contact owner.

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

$285/nt in 2016 (plus tax and cleaning)

Discount for stays of 14 nights or longer

Reservation not confirmed until owner and guest have had direct contact via email or phone call. Please read all about the book it with confidence guarantee/service fees to HomeAway if you have ANY concerns about booking this top rated condo.

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 MAJOR CREDIT CARDS AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE and I will call you for details. Book directly with me.

Resort fee: $18/day to be paid by guests at checkout. This covers parking, wifi, tennis court time, mai tai parties, movie night, fitness center access and other resort amenities.



The calendar below is for 4222 only

For a larger condo check out HBR 4221-2 that sleeps 5-6 max (VRBO 411675) .

On a budget? I have my suite available with king bed, the same gorgeous lanai views and a kitchenette (VRBO 283525) for just $170/nt that sleeps 3.



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 and will do all I can to make your vacation extra special.

Joan Bettencourt purchased this condo in 2005

Why Joan Bettencourt chose Kauai

Kauai is magical. You will never want to leave. When I walked in 4221/2 for the first time 35 years ago on my honeymoon and saw Bali Hai in front of me and I knew this was paradise. We even renewed our vows at HBR for our 25th anniversary.

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.

This is an owner managed unit and you will get special attention.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family of 4 (two teen age sons) stayed in unit #4222 & #4221 at the end of May, 2015. We ended up arriving early and the front desk was very helpful. Our unit was not quite ready (since we were very early) but the #4221 was ready, so they let us store our luggage in the room. Their shuttle service took all of our luggage and the 4 of us to our unit (no cars are allowed on the property). Once the bell service got everything unloaded, the main part of our room was clean and ready, several hours early. The maid service left us with extra coffee pods for the Keurig in #4221. They were very nice! I wanted to unpack but also wanted a cold beverage. My husband ran up to the sundries shop (next to the front desk) and bought a couple of cold beers.

After we relaxed and enjoyed the amazing view from ALL of the rooms, we decided to walk down to the St. Regis. Loved that we were close enough to walk down and enjoy the beach. Their is shuttle service up and down to the beach but we preferred to walk. We ended up walking over to Hideaways Pizza and then walked back to HBR after dinner.

The kitchen and both bathrooms have recently been remodeled and are lovely! The kitchen had everything we could possible need (AND THEN SOME) and the unit was super comfortable. My boys loved having #4221 all to themselves. It's open to the rest of the unit but is also rented as a stand alone hotel room. They loved having their "own space" including a microwave, mini-frig (which I stocked with cold drinks for them) and coffee maker (yes, they drink coffee). There is A/C in both bedrooms and the living room and though we did not need it for most of our stay, there was one day we were really glad we had it. There is a nice built-in desk in the living room where my husband could set up easily (he travels to Kauai on business). The front closet has a bunch of toys including boogie boards, beach chairs, ice chest and snorkel gear. There is a TV in each room which was great for us since 3 of us wanted to watch a movie while my older son worked on school work in the living room. We ended up using the flat screen TV in #4221 to watch a movie and it was quite comfortable for the 3 of us and we could close off the door to not disturb my older son.

The views from every room were amazing but waking up to that view was perfect. #4221 also has a great view and nice lanai. We ended up cooking breakfasts in, packing a picnic lunch and eating dinners out. The pool is super nice and we enjoyed hangin

Beautiful condo and resort

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations in every way. The views from the lanai were even more gorgeous than pictured (which I didn't think was possible). The condo was completely updated and the decor was very nice. It was well stocked with all of the basic necessities and the closet had a very nice selection of coolers, chairs and other beach accessories that we utilized during our stay. We put the in unit washer and dryer to good use.

The resort itself was one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The grounds and surrounding views were amazing. Everything was well maintained and the staff was both efficient and very friendly. The pool area was wonderful and the hot tub was the perfect temperature. The water fall setting and sandy bottom made this a very enjoyable experience.

The owner was extremely responsive and answered all inquiries and questions very promptly. She also was very helpful in providing advice and guidance relating to both the local area and Kauai in general. It is very evident that she loves this area and takes great pride in ensuring her condo is clean, comfortable and top of the line in every way.

I would highly recommend both this condo and the resort for anyone looking for a beautiful setting in Kauai. Although we spent time exploring all of the areas of the island, the North Shore was my absolute favorite.

Condo exactly as advertised, owner incredibly helpful/nice

  • 5 of 5

We rented Joan's condo as part of our honeymoon in September 2015. The condo itself was wonderful and exactly as advertised. The unit was very large, nice, and comfortable. The complex was also very nice and will be incredible once they are finished re-building the dining areas. Joan was incredibly helpful and responsive in our time leading up to the honeymoon. She was very patient with me asking tons of questions about what to do, where to eat, etc. She also includes so many items in the condo that enhance the trip. The kitchen is well stocked and she has tons of beach gear (snorkels, chairs, coolers, etc.) and other useful items.

I would not hesitate to stay with Joan again or recommend her to friends and family.

Wonderful Bali Hai Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted a special place to celebrate our 45th anniversary. From the minute we walked through the door of the condo and saw the view we felt immediately at home and knew we had chosen the right condo for us. The view from the lanai was breathtaking, the condo was beautifully furnished and immaculate, everything we would need for our eight day stay was there plus more. We appreciated the use of golf carts to help transport our luggage to the condo for us and for trips back and forth to the beach. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The Bar opened while we were there and we enjoyed an evening dinner during sunset over Bali Hai and listening to the local band. The only problem we had was with parking as with the opening of the bar there was often a lack of parking spaces for hotel guests returning in the evening after dinner. The staff were doing their best to assist guests to find a spot and hopefully in the future will be able to sort out this problem. We enjoyed working with Joan, she was eager to assist us in any way she could and even kept us informed of surf advisory for the north shore during our stay. Thank you Joan, your home is beautiful and we only wish we could have stayed much longer! We are hoping to return again, perhaps for our 50th anniversary!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks. I really want to create a peaceful environment for everyone. We're glad you enjoyed the updated accommodations, the pristine condo, and the fabulous location! The parking situation has been alleviated by the addition of valet parking for restaurant guests. I am so sorry you had a difficult time during your stay. We can't wait for your return to Hanalei Bay Resort for more aniversaries. Joan and Bill Bettencourt HBR 4222

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect North Shore Kauai Experience Hanalei Bay resort is the right choice. Situated with a glorious view of Bali Hai you feel as though you stepped on to a Kauai movie set. The spectacular color variation of the sky, ocean and hills is breathtaking.

The beautifully appointed condo has everything the traveler needs and much more. Kitchen is loaded with every appliance, pots, pans and dishware one could imagine.

A luxurious master suite features top of the line furnishings and fixtures. The private adjoining lanai includes the great view and comfy lounge chairs.

The large lanai off the living room is perfect for entertaining. Joan has created a true Hawaiian experience the moment you step inside. Careful attention is given to every detail of the authentic décor and furnishings. You will also have access to all the resort amenities, pools, tennis courts, beaches and more.

Gorgeous Condo

  • 5 of 5

We searched for months to find the perfect condo at the Hanalei Bay Resort and the search paid off with Joan's wonderful condo! She was extremely helpful throughout the entire process of preparing for our vacation and always made us feel comfortable asking her questions.

The condo is in superb shape and employees of the resort constantly remarked as to how lucky we were to stay in that unit. The view of Hanalei Bay is gorgeous and you can tell that Joan cares greatly about the place with how beautiful the decor is. I cannot recommend this condo enough, it was a highlight of the trip and a place we will always remember.

Look no further - you've found the place...

  • 5 of 5

There was a lot of self-imposed pressure on me to pick the right place to celebrate our 30th anniversary, so I looked at many, many options in Hanalei Bay. If you're going through the same process right now, I can assure you that you've found the right condo. This condo has amazing views, has gorgeous finishes, and is exceptionally well-equipped. Joan was especially helpful in planning many components of this surprise trip in addition to the accommodations. The experience of sitting on the lanai for both morning breakfasts and cocktail hour is beyond description, and we look forward to a return trip. STOP LOOKING....just sayin'.
