Honu Hale Kai is a warm and elegant home base for your family vacation adventure. This home sits upon an oceanfront property (one house back) with a white sand swimming beach only 80 steps away. Ocean views can be seen from this home. This vacation home is two stories. The upstairs level is the main living room with its own fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, disposal and washer & dryer. The master bedroom offers a teak wood queen size poster bed with a Tempur-pedic® mattress. Enjoy your own private spa tub and separate walk-in shower. A small covered lanai is a welcome area for those who want to enjoy their first cup of coffee or read a good book before others awake. Downstairs is great for a second and extended family joining you, or for the kids. One bedroom has a queen size bed and the other has two standard single beds. This level has its own living room with a TV, DVD & CD, and radio.
Enjoy kayaking, swimming, surfing, diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, kite surfing, and fishing. For those less active, take a long walk along the beautiful scenic Oceanside walkway along Kauai's eastern coconut coast. The paved walkway is a way for wheelchair assisted visitors to enjoy the scenery and for those with babies, it is a perfect stroll to soothe any child. We suggest early morning walks to capture the awesome sunrises that the coconut coast is known for. Be sure to take along your camera to capture the moment.
The majority of the walking path is paved for a smooth ride. For those more adventurous, an extended pathway continues along an old abandoned cane-hauling road, all along the ocean's edge.
This home is located within Kauai's historical walking town of Kapaa. Our guests can walk to fine dining as well as casual restaurants. Visit quaint curio shops, island art galleries, local handcrafters, and merchants.
Also, one will find fine jewelers and popular espresso bars with internet access. This town boasts of more than 15 different eateries that you can walk to and enjoy a variety of menus, for those who don't want to cook.

The town of Kapaa is centrally located on the coconut coast (east side) of the island, only 20 minutes from Lihue Airport. It is a beautiful 30 minute drive to majestic Hanalei Bay on the north shore and yet only 45 minutes to popular Poipu Beach on the south shore.
View Opaekaa Falls or take a boat ride up the Wailua River to the famous Fern Grotto. Water skiing, kayaking and canoe paddling are popular visitor activities and another way to enjoy the only navigable river in the state of Hawaii. It is only a short eight minute drive from your vacation home.
For the children, enjoy the local favorite, Lydgate Park where the keiki's will enjoy a labyrinth of slides, ladders, walking decks and fun activities for every age. This is known as Kamalani Bridge, built and created by the local community of Kauai for all children to enjoy.
Lydgate also features a baby pond and an adult safe swimming area circled by a reef structure to protect those who fear swimming in the open ocean. Lots of white sand beaches, picnic areas and restroom facilities are located throughout Lydgate Park.
