‘Honu Cove’ is a beautiful, top floor condo in the Pali Ke Kua complex in Princeville, Hawaii (unit 227). The unit has panoramic ocean views and was recently remodeled with hardwood floors, granite counters, new bathrooms and all new furniture. Embodying the “Aloha Spirit,” this Princeville condo rental offers the most amazing ocean views and has all the amenities you'd expect from a two-bedroom condo. The condo is located on a cliff overlooking a spectacular ocean cove. In Hawaiian language, honu ('HO-nu') is the word for the native green sea turtles that swim off the coasts. At 'Honu Cove' you can see these beautiful animals directly from your lanai as they feed in the cove below. Slightly further out to sea, you can also see Humpback Whales swimming by in the winter months (Dec-Apr). Of course, you come to Kauai to get in the ocean and this complex offers a PAVED path to a private beach (others have dirt paths which get quite slippery). Once you get here, you'll never want to leave.
The views and beach access alone would be enough for you to fall in love with this incredible home, but there's so much more. This 1 bedroom + loft unit with 2 full bathrooms has just undergone a massive top-to-bottom renovation. The unit sleeps 4 comfortably and is ideal for couples or small families. The master bedroom has a new, 4-poster, king bed with beautiful matching dresser and nightstands. The 2nd bedroom in the loft has a queen-sized bed with matching furniture. Each bedroom has a full adjoining bathroom with shower that's been completely remodeled with new granite-top vanities, new tile showers and floors. There’s a gorgeous gourmet kitchen with all new cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The dining area, with its new glass-top dining set, is surrounded by windows on 3 sides, each with a gorgeous view. Of course, if you’d prefer to outdoors, there is a patio table and chairs on the lanai that allows for great views of the ocean.
You may have heard about the famed 'Bali Hai' sunset as viewed from the exclusive St. Regis Princeville Resort 1/2 mile down the road, but you can marvel at this same sunset just a few steps from your condo. As the sun begins to set, grab your beach chairs (provided) and walk 50 feet out to a beautiful grassy point where you will view one of the most magnificent sunsets in the world. And, while some postings advertise Bali Hai views directly from the condo, keep in mind that Bali Hai is due west of the complex and, by definition, a Bali Hai view means hot afternoon sun in your unit every day. One of the magical qualities of this particular unit is that it has an eastern exposure for cool afternoons on your lanai, but it also has Bali Hai views just 50 feet away. It’s the best of both worlds.
Head just down the road to the luxury of the St. Regis Princeville Resort for dinner, drinks or entertainment. Of course, there’s always the wonderful restaurants in Princeville or Hanalei. Or, maybe you'd rather just enjoy a quiet evening at home and cook a beautiful dinner with fresh fish from the Hanalei Dolphin Fish Market (the freshest fish in town). Sometimes that seems to be the best choice of all.

Hello and welcome to 'Honu Cove.' We're your hosts, John & Brenda, and we're truly excited to share our newly remodeled vacation rental with you. Please surf around our website and you'll see what we mean. For bigger photos (and lots more), check out our website.
Contact the owners, John & Brenda, for more info. purchased this condo in 2008
We purchased this condo simply because it absolutely had the most expansive ocean views we've ever seen. When we bought it, the unit was pretty run down (as many condo units are after being on the rental market for years) so, shortly after we took ownership, we did a complete top-to-bottom remodel of the entire unit. Now it is unbelievably gorgeous with hardwood floors, new gourmet kitchen, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, fully renovated bathrooms and new furniture throughout. At this point, it's the most beautiful unit in the Pali Ke Kua complex, bar none. It might even be the most beautiful condo on the entire North Shore.
Honu Cove is situated on a cliff above a picturesque ocean cove where giant Green Sea Turtles ('Honu' in Hawaiian) frequently swim and feed on the tender seaweed that grows on the rocks. Slightly further out to sea, Humpback Whales regularly swim by during the winter months. And you can view this amazing wildlife on a daily basis from your own beautiful lanai or even from your kitchen table. Oh, and did we mention that there are views of deep green mountains and waterfalls from the master bedroom and, just across the cove, you can see the 7th green/8th tee of the famed Troon Makai golf course? It's all true. Simply put, the amazing views and opportunities for wildlife viewing from this condo cannot be paralleled anywhere.
We had a fantastic time while staying here in paradise. Loved the electric BBQ! The Prince Golf Course is a ball-eating-sun-of-a-gun, but very beautiful.
If you have chosen Kauai for your vacation then you know what you're doing. Now choose this condo for you and your partner and you will be more than happy. Gorgeous views from the balcony, living room and dining area. Airy and tastefully decorated. An updated kitchen that's well stocked. Beautifully landscaped property with a nice pool. Close to Princeville markets and restaurants and a 10 minute drive down to Hanalei. The only slight drawback is that it is a steep walk down to the rather rocky (private) beach. (Bring reef shoes when you come to Hawaii). We spent two perfect weeks there and we will come back!
This condo is AMAZING! Pali Ke Kua is centrally located to both Hanalei, Kilauea, as well as the various beaches that make the North side so wonderful. Upon entering this unit, you get that "WOW" factor when you realize the pictures provided via website exceed your expectation of the unit...how often can you say that? The unit has been fully upgraded and equipped with no compromise to quality. Although the unit does not face Bali Hai (which is just a stroll around the corner), this unit has a fantastic view of a beautiful cove, and gets wonderful trade winds throughout the day (very much appreciated after a day in the sun!). Pali Ke Kua's beach is accessible via paved path. This beach offers great snorkeling and tidepools.
We travelled with another couple to Kaua'i and this condo was perfect! It had beautiful views, was well-maintained (spacious, yet also providing privacy when needed), beautifully decorated throughout and had a wonderful location. Others had suggested we stay on the south end of the island, but all four of us agreed that we preferred the north side more. The rental company went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable, had maps, etc. It was a fabulous week & we would highly recommend this condo.
This condo will take your breath away.
The attention to detail and care shows in this most wonderful oasis. It exceeded our expectations! A well stocked kitchen, breathtaking views, first class comfort, an ocean breeze - what more could one ask for?
The perfect base for relaxation, exploring the island, enjoying sunsets and cooking lovely meals. We plan to return!
This beautiful condo has to be located on the most ideal spot for viewing sunsets in Kauai. Sunrises were wonderful, but each evening we would take the lawn chairs, so thoughtfully provided, and sit on the point to watch the most spectacular view imaginable! Listening to the sound of the ocean was so relaxing as we ate our meals, prepared in the well stocked kitchen. Every morning after breakfast, we would go down to the private beach and snorkel for a couple of hours, and then after showering in the wonderful bathrooms, we would tour beautiful Kauai. The north side of the island was just stunning and the condo is perfectly placed close to a grocery store, ice cream shop, farmers' market, sandy beaches and numerous other activities. Thank you for sharing your very special vacation home with our family!
Beautiful and super clean. We would definitely stay again. We love to cook and the kitchen is modern and very well equipped. John and Brenda were extremely helpful via email prior to our arrival. Best condo we've stayed in Kaua'i

Golf: This condo is conveniently located within a short drive of two of the top golf courses in Hawaii. The famed 18-hole Princeville 'Prince' course with its spectacular tiered fairways and greens and a even a beautiful waterfall is just 10 minutes away. Or, even closer is the newly renovated 27-hole Troon Makai Course that was closed for major renovation for over a year, finally reopening January 2010. Our condo overlooks the 7th green and 8th tee of the 'Ocean 9', just across the sea cove, so you're never far away from the feeling of golfing on sea cliffs above the ocean.
