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/or 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.

Kapaa Secret

  • 5 of 5
Having spent a lot of summers on Kauai as a child, I wanted to share that experience with my family of 5. I happened to see Tom and Linda's place online and decided to give it a go based on all of the positive reviews. The house was perfect for my 3 teenagers and my wife and I. It had all of the conveniences that you would need while on vacation. The house was a rock's throw away from a beautiful, swim-friendly beach and the walking and biking path which my family used everyday. Restaurants are abundant and you can walk to all of them. Besides all of that, Tom and Linda exemplify the true"aloha" spirit with their genuine hospitality and care of their guests. We would consider this our best family vacation ever, thanks to the beautiful accommodations, gracious hosts and great location!!! Mahalo to Tom and Linda!!!

So Welcoming!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for a girls getaway vacation. The house had everything we needed and more! Tom and Linda were very welcoming. Tom even showed us all his surf memorabilia. The house is centrally located and has a walking/running path right behind the house. I visit Kauai every year and I plan on renting this house again.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5
I travel quite a bit and I have to say this is the best vacation home I have ever stayed in. Spacious, clean, everything you could need was provided. Beautiful decorations really made it feel like a home away from home. Grocery stores, shopping restaurants, were all in walking distance. The beach felt very secluded and it has a great walking path. Tom and Linda were so nice and made us feel at home. Thank you Tom for taking our pictures. It was a huge hit with our Halau. Being from the islands I was really looking for a place that had a local flavor and this one was PERFECT! Whether you are traveling with family or friends I would highly recommend staying here.
It is also centrally located. Which was great for us since we traveled everywhere on the island. I will always stay here whenever I come to Kauai!

A gem!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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 :-)
