3 bedroom, 2.5 bath vacation house, ocean & waterfall views, walk to beach, WiFi
This lovely Hanalei Bay vacation rental home, is a classic Hawaiian style pole house - suspended on poles and giving the house fabulous circulation from the cooling ocean breezes. The location and the views are unbeatable for a relaxing beach vacation. From nearly every room in the house you can see Kawaikini and the stunning Makana ridge (also known as Bali Ha'i), these mountains are often flowing with beautiful waterfalls and we have a bird's eye view of the third green of the Makai golf course.
This three bedroom villa is located walking distance to nearly everything you want to do in Hawaii - from surfing, snorkeling, golf, lovely walks and paddle boarding - to the 5 star amenities of the St Regis Hotel (formerly the Princeville Hotel), which is less than 100 meters from the Villa. The hotel has great restaurants, a spa and an elevator or steps that take you right down to the beach where Hanalei Bay meets the Pacific Ocean. The fun and funky town of Hanalei is about a five minute drive from the villa (or a longish wade) from the Princeville public beach.
The famous Prince golf course is also less than 10 minute drive from the villa. The Prince is ranked as Golf Digest’s #1 Golf Course in Hawaii and one of America’s Top 100 Greatest Courses.
A designated parking place is only steps away from our front door, and free wifi is provided. Ask for the password after you have made your reservation.
Hike the Kalalau trail, snorkel Ke'e or Tunnels - you are only a short drive away! Hideaways, the best snorkeling on the island, in my opinion , is right across the road from our house, a five minute walk. Unsurpassed sunsets over Bali Ha'i may be enjoyed nightly from the ocean bluff just a three minute walk up the road.
This lovely villa has an open plan living room, dining area and kitchen with fabulous high vaulted ceilings and sliding glass doors leading out to a lanai - the perfect place for you to enjoy everything from your morning coffee to evening cocktails while you watch the sunset.
The living and dining room are very comfortable and there is a flat screen TV. There is also a DVD player and a stereo with radio and MP3 connections.
The kitchen has granite counter tops and is extremely well equipped, much more like a home than a vacation rental, and the dishes and glassware have an island touch - perfect for preparing great meals for friends and family. The whole of this upstairs area has dramatic views of Makana Ridge, Hanalei Bay and the Makana golf course. There is a half bath on this floor. You can enjoy both sunrise and sunsets from the home's two private lanais.
There are three bedrooms downstairs, all with high quality linens. The master bedroom has a California king bed, TV, ensuite master bathroom and a private lanai, with more of the same beautiful views of the bay, the Makai golf course and mountain waterfalls. The second bedroom has a queen bed and more beautiful views of the mountains, golf course and Hanalei Bay. The third bedroom has 2 twin beds, and just like the other bedrooms, it has beautiful views of the mountains and golf course. Bedroom 2 & 3 share a bathroom.
Island motif is felt throughout the home along with great circulation from all sides of the villa, which helps to catch the island breezes on those warm days and nights. We also include are boogie boards, some assorted snorkel gear, beach towels, beach chairs, along with other necessities to make your Hawaiian vacation perfect.

About Lynda English-Bervid
The homeowner is a highly regarded general contractor at Lake Tahoe
Lynda English-Bervid purchased this House in 2007
Why Lynda English-Bervid chose Princeville
The homeowner wanted a well built, free-standing home. He loved the 'pole house' idea, which allowed great ventilation and a tree house feel, and was captivated by the amazing panoramic views of both Hanalei Bay along with the stunning waterfalls in the ridge lines of Makana Ridge. He also wanted to be able to walk to beaches, bars and restaurants. Having the ability to walk from the house to go surfing, swimming and paddleboarding was a huge attraction.

We loved staying in Hanalei Bay Villa #12. The photos are absolutely accurate. The views are stunning. Those mountains, and the trees and foliage in front of you plus the view of Hanalei Bay make it difficult to leave the house! Should I sit on the lanai a little longer or go do something? The owners were very easy to communicate with and responded promptly to questions. What you are seeing and reading in the listing are accurate. Book this place!! But not on the days we want to come back! :) Some reviewers mentioned the roosters--ear plugs work very well if you think you will be bothered by their early morning crowing. Be watching for the Nenes to make frequent flybys as you sit there taking in the view.
Stunning views great location
Great house with amazing views. Waking up looking over the bay and seeing the waterfalls in the mountains was amazing. Being able to walk to hideaways just across the road was so great. The view of the water as you walk down was fantastic.
New TVs are a great addition, even though I know we shouldn't be watching them.
Literal jaw dropping views from the lanai
A fantastic villa in a gorgeous location. You could spend your entire visit sat on the lanai watching the ever changing views of the dramatic mountain range in front of you. We reckon this particular villa has one of the best views in this villa resort. Lots of space, and the master bedroom has it's own deck. Generally well equipped. We were grateful for the day trip supplies, i.e. cooler, snorkelling kits, and beach chairs. Sitting on the deck you are visited by a host of different bird species, beware though, shut your bedroom windows at night unless you want to be woken VERY early by the roosters (an issue all over the island). Comments on the area....walking distance to 2 nice beaches, although with Hideaways beach be prepared for a steep 'rope-assisted' walk. Villa is tricky to find the first time, especially at night. You are looking for the penultimate driveway on the left before the Regis Resort. Also be prepared for eye watering prices at the local grocery store/gas station. We did our shopping at Costco. Parking anywhere on the island is a pain. Get to the beaches early for parking (and generally better morning weather). We had a wonderful stay with great weather.
Thank you for taking the time to write this great - and informative - review, Gill! We hope to see you again soon.
Love this sweet home away from home!
We were delighted to have such an wonderful place to enjoy our last week in our Kauai! We had such a huge amount of rain the two weeks we were there (unusual weather per the locals) so that was a slight draw back although the waterfalls in the mountains and the views were spectacular! The flowers, the birds, the smell and feel of the air and the quiet were welcomed every day that we were there. Loved the home and all it has to offer...we would most definitely stay again...little piece of essential paradise!
The home did lack another roll of paper towels, dish towels and dish soap (sample size)...small footnote though to otherwise a perfect place to stay!
Thank you for our wonderful time to embrace the land we love!
Thank you for taking the time to write this review, Keith. The owner has talked to our on-island management company about your comments on the supplies. We hope to see you again soon!
Amazing views fabulous location
This unit is perfectly located in the beautiful community of Princeville. Lush grounds are impeccably kept, many activities and restaurants close by, and a short drive to Hanalei. The unit itself is dated but, serves the purpose well. Outstanding views, ample room for guests, comfortable beds, and a kitchen. Owner is very easy to communicate with and eager to make your visit comfortable.
Well presented, great location, fantastic views. Very comfortable home. Owner was responsive and helpful
I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay, Diana! We hope to see you again!
Hanalei River mouth is a 300 meters from Villa and great for paddleboarding. World famous surf break Hideaways and Hanalei Bay 100 meter walk from home
