E komo Mai (welcome) to Honu Cove, where the honu or green sea turtles play and swim in the magnificent and beautiful blue Pacific ocean, and where the waves crash practically at your door! This incredible 3 bedroom, 2 bath ocean front home has recently been remodeled and oozes with style and charm. Once you stay there, you won’t want to go home.
From the time you enter the beautiful double door entrance, you can hear the sounds of the ocean that you were only dreaming about before your arrival. The gorgeous teak floors take you right up to the main living area where you'll begin your close and personal experience with the ocean. The kitchen is quite large and is perfect for preparing those great island meals. Every seat in either the living, dining and at the kitchen bar has a stupendous ocean view. And if that isn’t close enough for you, then have a seat on the oceanfront lanai and just take it all in! And, don’t forget…during whale season, you'll have a front row seat!
Downstairs are two oceanfront master suites, both with king beds and custom tropical murals painted by one of Puna’s best! Both of the oceanfront master bedrooms open up to the downstairs ocean front lanai. What a perfect way to end an evening by stepping out and enjoying the beautiful sounds of the ocean. Not to mention, fantastic sleeping is definitely to be had here! The 3rd bedroom also on the lower level has 2 twin beds and a separate TV. Perfect for the kids getaway!

We really enjoyed our stay at Honu Cove! The house is very nicely decorated and very clean. We loved listening to the waves crashing against the lava all the time and the views were spectacular! We did seem to spend a bit more time than we would have liked driving to Hilo and back, but the location made it worth the drive! I would definitely stay here again!
My stay was last year in March. I just referred a friend and thought I would write a revweiw. I took my 10 year old son for his first trip to Hawaii and this house was a perfect springboard for all our big island adventures. As everyone says, the ocean is so close you feel like you are right in it. The house is older, but equipped with all you need. Views are off the hook and house is very private. If you are looking for tranquility, peace and sheer ocean beauty - this is your place. Yes, most things are a drive from the house, but it did not take away from any of our adventures. We appreciated not being in the tourist hub. I found the managers to be hospitable and even went so far as to offer us a free night when they showed the house. Above and beyond. I would stay again in a heartbeat.
Stayed in this home with my family around Christmas 2013. Beautiful home, lots of space, all necessities included. Home is situated right above the ocean. Unobstructed views and beautiful rainbows. Ocean waves break on the rocky shore right under the Lanai, what a beautiful sight. You can hear the ocean at night and be lulled into sleep listening to nature's power.
We stayed at Honu Cove from July 3 to July 23, 2012 and had a fantastic time. The property was exactly as advertised: Beautiful, charming and with an unbelievable view. We saw sea turtles (Honu) in the surf below our lanai everyday and we even spotted a large shark cruising by one afternoon. We could see Sea storms miles away and always had a cooling breeze. The sound of the surf lulled us to sleep everynight and the the Coqui frogs sang to us while we dozed. The propert is on a very quiet street and there is an exceptional ocean-front dirt road about a half mile away near Kahakai Rd. that is great for running or walking. The grill works well and we cooked on it almost every night. The bedrooms are comfortable although you have to get used to a little dampness because of the seaspray coming through the windows and the occassional rains. The master bathroom is beautiful and very functional. We were close to Pahoa and had easy access to groceriers, gas and a pharmacy. We will be back!
My sister and I stayed at Honu Cove for 13 days in Februrday. We were VERY disappointed, very very damp, musty, in two days we were both sick, sinus infection. Kitchen and bathroom cabinets smelled awful. We were so sick, we left and stayed 3 days out of the house to try to feel better. The day that we could leave for good was a very happy day, could not hardly wait to get out of there. The next house we stayed in was perfect! I would not recommend this house to anyone, unless the problems were taking care of.

We stayed for a couple nights in January (New Year's Eve!). Two adults and a nine-year old. The house is great with whimsical murals all over that we all enjoyed. As soon as you open the sliding doors to the deck you're awash with the ocean breeze, smells, and sounds. The kitchen is well appointed though we did a lot of picnics and ate in Pahoa. We saw turtles off the patio a couple days and watched squalls develop and drift across the ocean with rainbows in tow. The neighborhood is nice and felt very safe. We saw lots of families and people walking in the evenings. The only negative with the house is that the wave noise was high (hard to complain about I know, but there is a reason surf is described as "pounding" and "crashing"). It's posible that the swell was high when we were there, but the noise was not inconsequential. Not a big deal, but worth knowing in advance. Also, you can't get into the water from the house (but with Kapoho so near, you don't need to).
Pahoa is a cute little town with a good natural foods market to shop at. The mexican restaurant and Kaleos were both good; with Kaleo's offering high end excellent fusion cuisine.
Kapoho Tide pools are outstanding and a must see/swim. They are as good as Cooks and Place of Refuge on the other side. Fabulous snorkeling. The County park with the volcano heated pond is great and is clearly a local hangout that felt really comfortable. Take the Government (dirt) Road from the house to Kapoho (4WD would be best, but I don't think it's required). It's through some of the most gorgeous rain forest we visited. My son swung on 100-foot vines in the trees (that drive turned out to be a trip highlight for us). We went to the County park where the road is closed to see the lava glow (up on the hill in the distance) and that was cool. Volcanos Park is terrific. Great staff and easy traveling. Thurston lava tube is worth the walk (note that there is an overlook you can park on about 1/4 mile from Thurston and walk a very pleasant trail with good views to Thurston and avoid the bus parking congestion). We went to Waipio Valley and drove down, it was gorgeous and worth the trip.
Getting to and paying for the house was a breeze and Mark was very helpful and accomodating. No hassles or concerns at all. I wish I was headed there tomorrow!
