Premium condominium newly redecorated throughout, from the splendid carved-glass double-door entry, custom cabinetry in the kitchen and baths, Jacuzzi tub and separate shower in the master bath to the Hawaiian-style furnishings and tropical art.

Views and sounds of the ocean fill the living room, dining area, kitchen and master bedroom. Two lanais are yours for watching whales (November to April) and sunsets and rainbows on the ocean (all year).

Swim in the pool at the bluff's edge and enjoy the tropical views all around you. A private tennis court is on the manicured grounds.

Feel like cooking? Check out Kauai's farmer's markets or Sunshine Markets in different towns each day for fresh, local produce to include in your culinary creations. There are also several excellent fish markets with Kauai's freshest fish.

If you don't feel like cooking, stroll next door to the St. Regis Hotel for breakfast or an elegant dinner overlooking Hanalei Bay. Or, head to the neighboring town of Hanalei for a variety of interesting eateries.

Nearby Activities: golfing, seasonal swimming, sailing, kayaking, wind-surfing, horseback riding, snorkeling and much more. Beyond the two world-class golf courses that surround you are the picturesque old towns of Hanalei, Kilauea and Kapa'a, each with many little shops and artist studios for browsing and excellent dining establishments of all sorts.
