This place was perfect
My wife and I spent a week here for our honeymoon. It is an awesome, stand-alone condo. THE LOCATION IS PERFECT; the vegetation and vistas of the North side are amazing... BUT, this place really helps you enjoy it. This unit within Hanalei Bay Villas is one of the few of the ~40 villas that has excellent ocean AND mountain views. The front porch literally has a 140 degree view of the ocean. The sun set can be viewed from either the back OR front porches. We enjoyed sunset here every night. There is a small park right across the street where you can sit and watch sunsets too. The mountain view is gorgeous and can be seen from the upstairs or downstairs back porches. The dining room table has an ocean and coastline view. Both bedrooms have mountain views, so you wake up with perfect views too. The backyard is jungle, so you feel like you're really in the thick of it..but the condo is on stilts so we had no issues whatsoever with wildlife or bugs. There are pretty birds that will come and sit on the porch railing too.
In addition to the views and wildlife, the condo is down the street from the Princeville Resort, if you have interest in going there for dinner one night. It is a short, lovely 5 minute walk from the front door.
The beds were so comfortable. Plenty of pillows, blankets, towels, etc. Lots of closet space. New/Like new washer/dryer. Comfortable, basic bathrooms. The kitchen had everything we needed and there were condiments in the fridge. Coffee maker. Ice trays. All the utensils/plates/cups you could need too. Stove, oven, microwave, dish washer, etc.
Lots of useful beach gear on hand too. Chairs, umbrella, towels, beach games, etc. Very nice to have on hand.
There is one reserved parking spot that is right outside the front door. Very convenient.
The owners are very kind, with good/clear communication and were flexible with check out time (schedule permitting, of course).
Downsides: there really are none. Perhaps the only one is that it is a 1.5-2 hour drive from the front door to the furthest away lookouts in Koke'e State Park. We did the drive 3 times without issue as the drives themselves allow you to see the island and different vistas.
I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to family! Thanks Phil and Mary.
A Great Bungalow
This is our second time staying here. It's the perfect place for us. The kitchen, the bedrooms, the living room, the bathrooms are all clean and in good condition. The sound system (Sonos) is great - we really enjoyed it. The ocean view from the front windows is great for sunsets, and the back view of the mountains is equally wonderful. We've stayed here twice and can't wait to return!
Amazing first experience in the Hawaiian Islands. Communication with owner was great. I hope we can return to this exact place for years to come. The title of my review pretty much sums it up.
What a heavenly view!
We had a delightful stay, even though it rained half the time we were there. You can’t have that beautiful, lush, foilage covering the entire view from the deck without the blessing of Mother Nature. Thank you for sharing this little bit of heaven with us
Fabulous house and location!
Lush foliage and many species of birds in back, nothing but a (mostly) quiet road and endless ocean in front. It’s a great starting point to see a lot of interesting sights on the north shore. This house was perfect for our family of four. Mahalo! 🌺
