Hanalei Bay Villas are located on the beautiful North Shore of Kaua'i in the resort community of Princeville next to the St Regis Resort. It is a five mile drive to the town of Hanalei.
The free-standing, individually owned villas are nestled along a ridge-line with impressive views of the Hanalei Mountains. Villa #29 also opens onto the shimmering blue Pacific with a scenic overlook just across the street. The natural surroundings are stunning and beyond beautiful.
There are three beaches within close walking distance. As with all Princeville beaches, you will need to hike down 200 feet from the bluff to reach the shore. A short and steep foot trail with makeshift ropes and railings leads to Kenomene beach which is ideal for basking on the warm golden sands or resting under the large shade trees. Also known as "Hideaways Beach" and "Pali Ke Kua", this 300' stretch of beach is divided by a rock outcropping and offers great snorkeling and coastal views. Pu'u Poa Beach on the eastern shore of Hanalei Bay is another beautiful sandy beach located in front of the St Regis and can be accessed by a staircase or resort elevator. You can rent paddle boards, and other surf apparatus from the St. Regis staff by the pool.
Within Princeville you will find other gems such as Queen’s Bath, Sea Lodge Beach, and Wyllie Beach. There is an 18 hole Maka'i golf course, a 9 hole Woods Course, community tennis courts, a full service spa, public park/playground, jogging path, and outdoor fitness circuit.
Two miles from the home is The Princeville Center offering a grocery store, gourmet wine market, convenience store, gas station, ATM/Bank, shave-ice stand, specialty boutiques, casual courtyard cafes, and full service restaurants. Princeville Adventure Ranch offers zip-lining, horseback riding, jungle/waterfall hikes and off road adventures.
Take a quick, five minute drive to Hanalei Town (or follow the foot trail around the eastern shore of the bay during low tide) to Hanalei Pier & Beach Pavilion. You can rent sea kayaks, boogie boards, surf boards, and stand-up paddle boards to play on the bay and river.
A rental car is recommended. Free, assigned, off street parking is provided.
The home is centrally located on Kauai's pristine North Shore. Many gems are located within the community and within walking distance of the home.

Mahalo for your care and consideration!
Aloha! from Durango, Colorado. The North Shore of Kaua'i has stolen our hearts and is that 'happy place' we visit mentally while off island, where we spend many of our family vacations, and hope to spend our golden years. In the meantime, we invite you to share in the beauty, spirit, and splendor of this amazing place with the ones you hold most dear. Mahalo, Donna & Art
