TURTLE HOUSE BY THE SEA- A LUXURY 2 STORY COTTAGE IN KAPAA

Kapaa House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bdrm, 2 Full Baths Oceanview w/Sunrises, Swimming, Walking Path, Dining

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.

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.

For those who like to dine at home, a complete kitchen package is available with service for 8 guests.

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.

Kapaa Town also has a small public skateboard park located within a baseball/basketball/tennis facility only a short walk away.

Bicycle rentals are available in town as well as surfboard, boogie board and kayak rentals. Scenic horseback riding is located only a short distance from home.

A gem!

We rented Tom and Linda's cottage for 2 weeks in December/January, together with our son and daughter in law and our 2 year old grandson. Everything we needed was there for us when we arrived...from a baby crib, children's toys, snorkel equipment, beach chairs and beach towels, fresh flowers to a very comprehensive guide/binder with all the information we needed to make our stay perfect. We felt so welcome.
The kitchen is very well equipped and we cooked most of our family meals here. The house is comfortable and centrally located; close to all activities and walking distance to many excellent restaurants and shopping.
As the cottage has a lower and upper level, each with its own kitchen, bathroom and entertainment centre(!), it lends it self well to cater to families with young/teenaged children.
Tom and Linda were very helpful and were always there with ideas for sightseeing and pointed out the best surf and swimming beaches for us.
We had one of our best and relaxing holidays ever and we can't wait to come back!
Thank you Tom and Linda!

Your home away from home in paradise

My family thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at Honu Hale Kai. Our first stay was two years ago and we didn't even consider looking for another place to rent this time around. Tom and Linda are exceptionally gracious hosts who go out of their way to make sure your vacation is perfect, whether it's fulfilling a special request, recommending a restaurant, or just sharing a story. This house is well maintained, well equipped and clean. The location is excellent, steps to the beach or dining and shopping yet quiet and like being home in your own neighborhood. We will be back again!

From the first time I spoke to Linda on the phone, until we checked out, I knew we were in for a treat! She and Tom were perfect hosts, always meeting any need we might have! With my son & family living in Kauai, we have been visiting at least once a year. This time, my son and family stayed with us, since they were in the process of looking for a long term rental. This home was the perfect spot for his family of 4 and the two of us! It is so very comfortable & beautifully equipped and the location is ideal!
Mahalo Linda & Tom. We'll be back :-)

Linda is Great, Tom is a Hoot

What a wonderful place. This is a purpose-built vacation home, beautifully appointed and built. VERY thoughtful layout. We had three couples staying in it and it worked well. Linda is wonderful. Tom is a hoot. He has lots of stories about working with Hollywood on the island. All stories are fun and enthusiastically shared. There is a bike path that runs 4 miles. We rented bikes from a local stand not more than 150 feet away. Best part of the trip. The helicopter ride was incredible. Suggestion: take it as early in the morning as allowed. Kapaa is funky and fun. Breakfasts at Kountry Kitchen were great. Shop at Big Save to save money on groceries. Go to Duke's restaurant for a beautiful restaurant and GREAT food., go to the Smith Family Lua. Very excellent entertainment.

Linda and Tom's place couldn't be nicer.

We had such a fabulous vacation, we already booked to stay here again. Owners were exceptionally helpful with any request. Great house layout for families with tweens and teens (our are 13 & 11). Loved having a TV room and kitchenette downstairs as well as a full kitchen and TV upstairs, although we only watched one movie the whole week. Grandma was able to hang with the kids downstairs while we stayed upstairs. Ran almost every day along the running path in front of the house, and we loved boogie boarding at nearby Keaila beach. We basically cooked breakfast, snacked or bought lunch, and ate dinners out. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Olympic Cafe, Java Kai, and Tiki Tacos were some favorites. Smith Luau was entertaining and kayaking up to the Secret Falls was a blast. Already looking forward to next time. Mahalo! J&J

Enjoy the 12 ft wide concrete pathway all along the oceanside for

jogging, biking, walking, strolling. Lots of grass surrounding

The fisherman in the family can always 'talk story' with the locals at the nearby mini boat harbor where charter fishing boats are often setting sail for fresh Ahi, Ono, and Mahi-mahi. Fresh fish on the BBQ is always a must while enjoying the ambiance of the island.

Plan a family cook-out on property with a private BBQ, picnic tables, and night lighting.
