We stayed at this property for 8 days for our honeymoon and it was the perfect place to relax and it was easy to get to a great beach. It's not the best central location if you're trying to visit different places on the island, however if you're just trying to stay in one spot with plenty of relaxing, you have everything you need in one location. One negative we had is that we didn't realize that the north part of the island is the wettest and we did get quite a bit of rain (obviously nothing the resort can help, but just an fyi). It was nice to have groceries, shopping and dining so close to the resort. We would certainly stay here again!
Affordable North Shore Condo with Great View
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed staying here because we could enjoy resort amenities without the exorbitant resort price. The condo is a bit dated, but it had everything we needed at a great price. We loved the pool area and getting drinks from the Ukulele bar poolside. The view from the lanai is beautiful and we often sat out there in the mornings and evenings. The condo is in a convenient location in the north shore and it’s still easy to get to other parts of the island.
I had a wonderful stay here! Love this place! Would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone!
The views from this condo blew us away. Each morning to be greeted by expansive beauty. The property, communication, and condo itself all were perfect. We felt this was a phenomenal value for the price! Highly recommended!
Disappointed and Dirty
A lot of updating needs to be done to this property. There were numerous problems that we found when we entered. The refrigerator door was open with old food still there. There was a melted ice cream bar and tupperware of potato/macaroni salad in the warm refrigerator. The dresser under the air conditioner was dirty because layers of dirt/dust fell from the air conditioner that was not maintained/cleaned. After all this, we checked the sheets, which were dirty from makeup stains and dirt. The door knob of the bathroom door was replaced but the damage from replacing the door knob was never fixed. Bare wood was showing and not repainted. The vent in the bathroom is incredibly loud. Only convenient thing about the property was that there was a washer/dryer in the unit so I could wash the dirty sheets. I called and emailed the on call property manager on the island without a call back or email response. I spoke to the Hanelai Bay Front Desk, but they were unable to help us due to this is a privately owned condo. Luckily, the property manager from Aloha Condos called me the next day to ask me if a plumber could go into the property during our visit to unclog the shower drain; therefore, I was able to discuss the state of the unit. Aloha condos only refunded the cleaning fee and did not offer anything else. I would never recommend this property as I spent the first 6 hours of arriving cleaning the sheets and the property on my vacation. Book through the resort directly. It is cheaper and has to be cleaner.
Stunningly Beautiful Views
We stayed two nights this year around a promo on the south shore of Kauai. In 2017 we stayed four nights and loved it so much we just had to come back at least a little while. The view in the morning when you sit on your lanai is just gorgeous. The rooster comes and makes his announcement of the morning which we love. The unit itself has a very comfortable bed, plenty of storage, a washer and dryer and great little kitchen. We went down to the beach one morning and had the best time snorkeling and then just pick up the courtesy phone and they pick you up, since the walk back up is very steep. We truly love this unit and resort it's not as "glitsey" as some others but the resort and unit are a great place to experience that feeling of Aloha.
