Ahhh...welcome to our villa at Hanalei Bay Villas that my youngest son and daughter-in-law rented in Kauai. We were happy to arrive in paradise. Our villa had a living area, kitchen, eating area, and half bath, along with the lanai, on the first floor. On the lower level, were three bedrooms and two full baths, and another lanai.
This is the view from right across the front of the villa. Later on down, you will see what it looked like at sunset.
While my family members napped, I set up a tablescape. I picked some double hibiscus for a pretty centerpiece. Wish you could've joined me with some Coconut Pull Apart Loaf and a cup of tea. The amenities at the villa were wonderful, with everything that you could possibly think of.
The choice of the dish pattern was perfect for enjoying the lush tropics, don't you think?
This cute bird kept me company! It's called a red-crested cardinal. The picture isn't that clear because it was taken through the screen door.
My son treated his wife and I to a luxurious massage at the St. Regis Princeville, which was within walking distance.
After our massage, we met Kevin, while my other son, Mike, watched Harper while she was napping. Kristen and Kevin enjoyed some Poke, which is a raw fish salad in Hawaiian cuisine, that is served as an appetizer. Did I partake, you ask? No, I just couldn't! Kristen said that it's a "generational thing"!
Here's our beautiful view from the lanai. Wouldn't you love waking to this each morning? I know that I sure did!
Here's the sweet family enjoying the waves and warm water. We visited several beaches while in Kauai, but the beach at the St. Regis, which we had access to, was our favorite one. My sons and DIL all snorkeled and enjoyed seeing the various fish.
While walking, we saw this sign and had to take a picture! Harper sure had fun with her Uncle Mike!
Here are the brothers enjoying the boogie boards, which were provided by the villa owners. They even had sand toys for my granddaughter to enjoy.
We took a trip up to Waimea Canyon, but Harper doesn't look too happy about it!
EVERYWHERE you go there are chickens and roosters walking around the island! Yes, they wake you in the morning, too! The day starts early at the island of Kauai.
God provided us with a gorgeous sunset for our last evening in paradise!
We enjoyed a breakfast at the St. Regis for our final morning before heading to the Hyatt Kauai for a day pass. Since our flight didn't leave until 9 pm, and we had to leave the villa by 10 am, Kristen arranged for us to go there for the day. We had another wonderful time enjoying the Hyatt Resort. However, Kevin crashed in the bed, as he had fever and chills, but he was just thankful to sleep the afternoon away in the room that was provided. Being at the Hyatt was a lovely reminder, as my late beloved hubby and I went to this very same resort back in 1995, when we visited Maui and Kauai for our 25th Anniversary. It is still as beautiful as it was back then.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
Thank you for your visit! xo
