Experience the Island Paradise of Kauai's North Shore from Above the Treetops

Waterfront apartment with kitchen and balcony
This spacious, newly renovated second floor unit provides unique, breathtaking views of South Pacific against the backdrop of mesmerizing, romantic sunsets behind Bali' Hai' from your front porch.

The rear balcony offers equally spectacular views of Hanalei Bay, with waterfalls gently cascading into the green lush rainforest of the world famous Na Pali Coast. Because you are above the tall tree tops, you get the sense that you are in your very own Tree House! It is the perfect place for a romantic Honeymoon, family vacation, or just a special get-away. Literally, across the street, is the perfect location to catch the seasonal whale migration and the big surf of Kauai's famed North Shore. You can take one of three paths to three different Beaches, including Hideaways Beach, Secret Beach, or the beach at Hanalei Bay at the base of The St. Regis Hotel. All offer safe snorkeling areas where you can enjoy colorful marine life with complimentary snorkel gear provided with the studio apartment. Beach chairs and beach towels are also provided to our guests. There is free off street parking steps from the front door. There is also free Wi-Fi and landline long distance telephone service to the US Mainland and Canada. There is a cable HDTV, DVD player, and CD player.

This unit has recently been completely renovated with the assistance of a professional decorator and designer to give it that genuine old Hawaiian look that is clean and inviting. The 20' ceilings give a sense of spacious openness typical of traditional Polynesian homes. My most recent addition is a brand new 14" Plush Pillow Top Queen Mattress, with 4" of Pillow Top for a well-deserved good night's sleep after a day of island activities. I have also added a new powerful 15,000 BTU window A/C unit for those rare warm days.

The studio has a fully equipped kitchenette with a full-size refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee pot, blender, toaster, and place settings for four guests. For the convenience of guest staying several days, I recently installed a small combo washer/dryer unit in the bathroom closet. It is designed for light loads only, and is quiet and clean. Because it is NOT vented, please allow anywhere between 2 to 3 hours drying time. You can set it for Wash Cycle AND Dry Cycle at one time, and simply leave for the day as it will automatically switch from "Wash" to "Dry" on its own. An Instructional Sheet is taped to the top of the unit itself.

The bathroom has also been completely modernized with new granite tile, cabinetry, granite counter tops, and a vessel sink. A hair dryer, iron, and ironing board is also provided.

This unit sleeps up to four guests with a queen bed (with the new pillow top mattress) and a queen sleeper sofa. The unit has a window AC unit as well as two new remote control ceiling fans for those rare warm days.

Do you need more room? Please see my HomeAway Property #253851 for Side 1 of this duplex which can sleep an additional six guests. Side 1 is a larger unit with a loft. It has a FULL kitchen has been recently remodeled with all new modern major appliances, cabinets, granite counter tops, deep well sink with a garbage disposal, and other convenient amenities. The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare meals. There is a new stackable washer/dryer behind closed doors.

That unit (Side 1) sleeps up to six guests with a king bed, a queen sleeper sofa, and two twin beds in the loft area which is easily accessible with a newly designed staircase. The unit has window AC unit as well as two new remote control ceiling fans for those rare warm days. Side 1 rents for $195.00 per night, plus applicable tax of 13.42% and a Maid Service Cleaning fee of $150.00.

You can rent just one side or both, depending on the number of guest in your party.

Gentle, cool trade winds off the South Pacific, complimented with your private views of the Mountains, Bali’ Hai’, and Hanalei Bay will leave you with lasting memories of The Garden Isle. Come and allow yourself to be pampered in what is truly Paradise.

As a seasoned traveler myself, the condo has been specially appointed with every amenity and convenience to make your vacation truly stress free. No unnecessary trips to the store to buy things for your stay. All is provided, just bring your sunscreen and Mai Tai mix.

Of the dozens of countries and hundreds of towns and villages I have traveled to in the world, none compares to the sheer natural beauty of the North Shore of Kauai. Come to relax…and be pampered…you deserve it!

Amazing Location & Property
This property was absolutely wonderful! It had everything we could want or need, including a washer/dryer, AC, easy to find parking, and it's located in one of our favorite places on Kauai. The view from the deck is so beautiful and it's a very short walk to a beautiful sunset lookout over the ocean. North Shore Kauai is the most beautiful place I have ever seen, so it feels like a dream being able to stay somewhere so breathtaking. The room itself is also amazing! The bed is super comfortable; the washer/dryer take quite awhile, but they get the clothes clean; there's a large fridge/freezer; the shower is really nice; there's some beach gear; and the AC does a great job of keeping the room cool. We LOVED this room and would be thrilled to stay here again some day. One negative is that you can hear the people next door sometimes and the front door is very loud, but it wasn't too much of an issue. I highly recommend staying here for your vacation!

Wonderful stay; as advertised
We had a wonderful weekend on beautiful Kauai. The condo was as advertised. Great location and very clean. My only suggestion would be to fix the outside lock as the inside door had a flimsy lock so you are at the mercy of the other unit to keep doors closed and locked. But I would definitely visit and stay here again if I am fortunate enough to be able to return! Thank you!

Awesome location!
This place was perfect for our needs! My husband and I loved the back lanai for coffee in the morning (shared lanai with neighbor but it felt private since the neighbors never were out there at the same time). We also loved the beach chairs and being able to walk to Wyllie Beach and Queens Bath from the unit. The sunset across the street overlooking Hanalei bay is breathtaking. Bed was comfortable and AC worked well. Overall, great place and highly recommend! Hope to be back again someday!

Ok apartment; good location
The apartment is on the smaller side and I’m need of some updating, but it is more than adequate. Location is quite good with easy access to nearby beach and wonderful views. It would have been nice to have had the ability to cook something, but it was fine for a short stay.

Great location with awesome view!
The unit is in a great neighborhood. It’s right next to a golf club and there’re pedestrian walkways so made it easy for walking and scenic viewing. The unit faced sea on one side, and valley on the other side. It’s close to the town and north shore attractions. Kauai is a very wet island. You may feel humid when you just walk in the unit. But after you open all the windows for a bit, it will be just fine. During our visit in end of June, we didn’t need AC at all. Small washer is a must have for beach vacation. We didn’t use the dryer feature as we couldn’t wait for 2 hour cycle. Instead, we hang clothing in the unit and it worked out.

Perfect location
We had an amazing time staying here. The location was perfect and we were able to get wherever we needed easily from here. We were comfortable in the room and loved that there was some gear already available so we didn’t have to rent anything. The neighbors were friendly, the beaches nearby were a great introduction to Kauai.

Gorgeous location
The view from the back Lanai with the mountains and hanalei bay was unbeatable. Being able to watch the sunset right across the street was a nightly thing for us. It was so helpful having a washer. The unit was clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend to others as well.
