With two bedrooms (separated by louvered wooden doors), 1[bf]1/2 to two bathrooms, full kitchens, and living rooms, these 48 individually owned, updated condos are perfect for families—or anyone who can appreciate being as few as 10 feet from the beach in the shadow of green peaks near the end of the road. It has no TVs, phones, or entertainment systems, although free Wi-Fi means guests don’t disconnect quite as much as they used to. The beach is generally not safe for swimming, but you’re less than a mile from Makua (Tunnels) Beach, and the barbecue area by the small pool boasts lush landscaping and a koi pond. The resort operates a 13-passenger shuttle to Hanalei, Princeville, and various beaches; the independently run Ayurvedic-themed Hanalei Day Spa and Hawaiian fusion Opakapaka Grill and Bar restaurant, with excellent cocktails, are on site.
