Honu Kai which means 'Sea Turtle ' in the Hawaiian language is a beautifully refurbished Hawaiian beach house great for friends and families with all the amenities you could wish for on your vacation. The house has a great Hawaiian feel and is maintained beautifully by the owners and efficient house keeping staff.
If you need more sleeping accommodations or desire more room and water practically under your feet then Hula Cove, our guest studio with a queen sized bed located across the street and directly on the tidepools may be rented separately or in conjunction with Honu Kai.
The snorkeling entrance to the largest of the tidepools is across the narrow street a mere 25 steps from the front of the house. You can sit on the private front deck of the house gazing at the water and enjoy fresh papaya picked from the nearby papaya plantations or relax in the hammock downstairs with a good book during the heat of the day. Don't worry about curious passerbys as the large Areca and hibiscus hedge shields the house from the afternoon noise and business of the tidepool sunbathers and swimmers.
Maybe you would like to take a bike ride thru the community or relax on the back patio getting a tan or quietly meditating while emjoying the orchids and coconut palms.
When it's time to turn in enjoy the sounds of the waves crashing on the reef in the distance or maybe the rain pounding on the house's tin roof. In this part of the world there is only the sounds of nature at night.

Thanks for the great stay at your beautiful home. Very tasteful interior design and very clean and well stocked.
Our family of four had an excellent stay at Honu Kai. From booking inquiry through departure, we felt very well taken care of. The pictures don't do justice to how close the house is to the tide pools, we simply strolled about 150, 200 ft down the street with our 5 yr old boys to get our snorkeling fix in. The house was immaculate, and very well stocked, we ate in nearly every meal and never felt we were lacking any kitchen gear. There must be about 5 or 6 ceiling fans which provided plenty of nice cool breeze on hotter days and made sleeping very comfortable. We were amazed by how well the unique sounds of the local frogs at night lulled us to sleep (this is coming from a light sleeper). To top it off the house comes with a lot of beach toys, rafts, snorkel gear, beach cruisers, chairs etc for use. Last but not least, the downstairs separate full bathroom was very convenient for washing kids off before going into the main house after snorkeling excursions. All in all, great place, great location, and great personal service and attention by the booking manager!
We had a great time on the east.side of the island at this house. This cute, comfortable cottage was accurately described in the listings. Very well stocked! We loved snorkeling in the tide pools ( the best snorkeling we did on the entire island) ! Great location - right across the street from the tide pools. We were grateful for the hot tub after snorkeling. VNP was an easy drive away and amazing! I highly recommend eating at Kaleo's in Pahoa for dinner. Terrific food and service! The drive to Kalapana down red road was very cool. Fun drive among the beautiful rainforest trees and shoreline. Thank you!
This place was great, the pictures don't do the rental justice. Very clean, Had bikes,snorkles,rafts basically anything you needed was here. No a.c. but the trade winds kept the house cool. Very safe area. Literally steps away from the tidepools which are AMAZING! Were from oahu and the tidepools that are by this rental is the best snorkling we have ever seen!! Also the owners are very easy to be in contact with, always emailed right back which was great. They also have a binder full of detailed places to visit around the island which was nice to read. Also we had no cell service here which was kinda good because you shouldn't be on your cellphone on vacation anyways lol. The only service that really worked was AT&T. Sprint,verizon didn't work. But they do have a house phone for local calls. They do have WIFI so atleast we had that! :) The fridge had all your food condiments so all we really had to buy was meats or whatever we were cooking. & They do have a large grill. Overall great place. I could go on and on. We are already talking about coming back to this rental. We were sad to go! Def recommend to anyone!
All the incidentials you need are here. Just bring your clothes. My husband, daughter, fiance and his parents stayed here April 2012. We were in Hawaii for 2 weeks visiting 4 islands. This was the nicest places we staed at. His home was clean, stepts away from the best snorkling (of course he had everything you needed). We had one minor problem with the hot tub, and it only took one call to the man who maintained it, and first thing in the morning he was there. It is away from the Hustle and bustle of the Island, but close to the Lava Tree Park, volcano heated pools, and so much more. We have bragged about this to our friends, and recommend it to anyone going there. Nice quiet residental neighborhood. The owner provided so much helpful information and recommendations. He made our 1st trip to the islands so easy. Thee is not one bad thing I can say, he even followed up with us to see if there were any suggestions we could give or repairs we thought were needed. He is proud of his home and it shows in the care he takes of it. Grab this place while you can, you will not be sorry. We would definately come back again. Except for food, anything and everything you need is there, we were shocked at all the things he had, If you are not traveling to other islands don't bother bringing all those toiletries, towles, hair drier, lotions, His place is well stocked with good quality items. Honestly it was maintained so well, nicer than our own home. I can;t say enough about it or the personal care and attention that the owner gave us. He worked us us on our schedule and made sure the lights were on when we arrived. Our GPS took us directly to the house. We are looking forward to coming again.
We had a wonderful stay at Honu Kai. The home itself was well stocked and clean. We felt very comfortable there. The best feature, however, was its close proximity to the tide pools. The snorkeling was fabulous and the area was not crowded at all. We felt like we had our own private tide pools. The tide pools are also a great spot to catch a beatiful sunrise! We also enjoyed all the sounds at night/early mornings - the geckos, birds, frogs, etc. Very peaceful!
Mike, the owner, was also very helpful and curtious.
Our stay at Honu Kai was awesome. We found the house clean, comfortable and well stocked. Each morning we took our coffee out to the lanai and enjoyed the sound of the ocean and the tropical birds. There we would plan our day. We visited Kilauea Volcano, Kalapana, the warm ponds, the farmers' markets, Pohoiki, and of course we snorkeled down the street nearly every day. We were thankful to the geckos for keeping the place insect free. I love Kapoho, and have rented a different house each time I visited. I hope Honu Kai will be available next time I come to the Big Island. I definitely recommend this house to anyone who enjoys the less glitzy, more relaxed Hawaiian experience.
