About the property

Ease Into Island Life With This Condo On The Enchanting Island Of Kauai

This 500 sq. ft. studio has cathedral ceilings, powerful ceiling fans, and a beautiful tiger wood floor, creating a fresh, clean, and spacious feel. The king bed area is an open concept plan incorporating the living area and dining area. The casual kitchenette, equipped with an apartment size fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker, expands guest’s options for eating. Wireless internet in the unit enables you to use your laptop to stay in touch with family & friends or even work from paradise. There is free island wide calling and a TV/DVD player and CD/Clock radio for your entertainment. For much less than the cost of a hotel room on the North Shore, The Orchid Room is an excellent home base for exploring this beautiful island.

The private lanai off the back of the unit, offers spectacular views over the lush tropical jungle to the distant Hanalei Mountains, often draped with waterfalls. The grounds of Hale Moi have lush, tropical landscaping with many types of beautiful plants and flowers. There is also a shared grill area, in the middle of the condo complex, for your BBQ needs.

About Jessica Baptiste


I came to Kauai the first time as a teenager in the 1970's and did not come back again until my daughter, Jessica, decided to marry a Kauai man and move to Princeville. Jessica fell in love with the lush, tropical, exotic, mysterious and wonderous island; where at any given time you can see Monk Seals, Sea Turtles, schools of Dolphin and Whales. One can Paddle Board or Kayak up the Hanalei river or Hanalei Bay, Scuba Dive, Snorkel, hike the many trails and eat at fabulous restaurants or simply enjoy a simple meal while relaxing on the Lanai.

After my daughter moved to Kauai, I followed her and have become captivated by the Island and all it has to offer.

I live in Silicon Valley California so Jessica and Steven are managing my delightful Hale Moi-The Orchid Room condo. Prior to buying The Orchid Room, I stayed many, many times in the Hale Moi condos while visiting Jessica. I love the lush, tropical jungle overlooking the Lanai. Across the street is the Famous Bluff for watching the Bali Hai Sunset and a short walk will bring you to the St. Regis Resort for 5 star restaurant, Spa and mesmerizing daily Sunset Happy Hour, not to mention a Gourmet Sunday Brunch.

I hope you enjoy the Garden Island as much as we do. We strive to make sure your stay is memorable.

Don't forget to take the UFO boat tour of the Napali Coast which leaves from Hanalei Bay.

You will be treated to entering the Sea Caves with Waterfalls and Open Ceilings (which only a small boat can do) and an opportunity to Snorkel along the World Famous Coastline with Sea Turtles, Dolphins, Exotic fish and who knows what else you may see underwater.

What a bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Orchid room was perfect. Wonderful location, lovely and very clean room with great high ceilings and very comfy bed. Within walking distance of a gorgeous beach. Easy and efficient payment and check-in/checkout process; helpful and responsive host. We absolutely loved it and would definitely stay there again!

Lovely vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is especially lovely, and with a spectacular view of the jungle and the mountains and waterfalls (after the rain). The bed was very comfortable, the bath had plush bath linens, and the place was spotless. Really a wonderful, well-priced place to call home when visiting Kauai's North shore!

Very comfortable with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Two nights was not enough time to explore the area. For the time we had, these accommodations were perfect. Enough space, little things like cups and dishes, micro, toaster, etc. Spacious bathroom, clean. Plenty towels, beach chairs, private.

Beautiful and laid back, just like the North side of the island

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a perfect place to stay for the 2 of us. We didn't need a fussy resort, just a nice, clean, comfortable place to lay your head down after a busy day. The views of the mountains from the lanai and the sounds of nature that crept into our ears made the apartment feel like a wonderful retreat from the busy city we come from. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Clean, Quaint, Convenient

  • 4 of 5

Perfect space for two to visit Kauai. We loved the location in the community of Princeville. We were so close to great amenities and a great coffee shop. The grocery store is close and you're within walking distance to the beach. There are great walking/running paths right outside your front door. The unit was clean and organized. It had everything we needed to prep breakfasts and lunches. The beach chairs and cooler were a great addition for our beach days. Renting a car is imperative so that you can travel to Waimea to see the canyon and putz around Hanalei. There is no A/C here, but the fans and trade winds kept us cool. There are tons of roosters no matter where you go, but because keeping the windows open is necessary, they will gladly wake you up before the sun. Keep that in mind! Don't forget to take the boat tour of the Napali Coast, that was our highlight! Also, don't miss Pink's dessert. We went everyday! We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Very attractive and clean condo.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this unit. It's nicely decorated and in a great, nice, and beautiful location. There is a view of the golf course and gorgeous mountains from the lanai. The unit is plenty big for two people and has a lot of conveniences. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is a good size. There are two beach chairs and two beach towels and a cooler. The closet is in the bathroom with extra spare towels and a hanging area for your clothes. In the living area is a microwave, toaster oven, small refrigerator, coffee maker, and necessary dishes and utensils. The refrigerator does not have a freezer. The bathroom also has a clothes line for drying clothes, something I appreciate. We would definitely stay here again if the price is right.
