HONU KAI HIDEAWAY - WHITEWATER OCEAN, MOUNTAIN & GOLF COURSE VIEWS

Kahuku - Turtle Bay Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 BR+1BA - Sleeps 1-2, Upstairs End Unit next to Golf Course

Honu Kai Hideaway is nestled among the trees and lush landscaping of the spectacular Turtle Bay Resort, an 880 acre tropical paradise. Our Hideaway is the perfect blend of tropical seclusion amidst all the amenities offered by a world class resort. Our expansive whitewater ocean and golf course views will take your breath away.

Honu Kai Hideaway is located along the renowned stretch of beaches that make up Oahu's North Shore. The North Shore is known for it's country living, relaxed lifestyle, beautiful surfing beaches, eclectic shopping and pleasurable restaurants.

Honu Kai Hideaway is remarkably more light and airy than other Kuilima Estate condos because additional large windows showcase our expansive view with a 'treetop' feel. The private Lanai is perfect for relaxing outdoors or enjoying meals al fresco.

The condo is fully furnished including flat screen HD TV, WIFI, and Cable TV. (However, it should be noted that Internet service and Wi Fi are often spotty and intermittent on the North Shore).

The kitchen is full-sized with stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. (Barbecues are available poolside). A washer and dryer is included within the unit. The bedroom offers a Cal King bed with air conditioning in the bedroom.

Honu Kai Hideaway is located on the East side of Kuilima Estates and is surrounded by two championship golf courses. Some of the amenities available to guests include tennis courts and two swimming pools each of which includes a barbeque area. A short walk and you are at the Turtle Bay Hotel which has many terrific restaurants, a great pool bar, entertainment and magnificent beaches. There are many activities on the property that can be booked at either the Hotel concierge desk or the the Activities Center. One can choose from horseback riding, bicycle or moped rentals, surf lessons and helicopter rides. Golf can be booked at the golf pro shop which is also home to Lei Lei’s restaurant a favorite of locals.

Fabulous eating options abound within the Resort and on the North Shore; A scenic 15-30 minute drive in either direction offers a sumptuous variety of local, international or resort cuisine. Locally grown fruit and vegetable stands are just down the road. Ted's Bakery is less than 10 minutes away (Chocolate Haupia Pies!). We also have a delightful grocery store, Foodland which is just 20 minutes away.

Historic Haleiwa town, a 30 minute drive, is an old whaling village and has become a shopper's paradise and restaurant-lovers delight. Yet it still maintains it's old town charm.

Every conceivable water activity is easily available to you here at the Resort and on the North Shore: Surfing, Sunbathing, Diving, Snorkeling, Tide Pools, Whale Watching, Fishing, Jet Skiing and more. Lessons are available for anyone with a desire to learn.

In addition to all the activities and amenities of Turtle Bay Resort there are countless activities for the energetic visitor. Exploring the magnificent North Shore beaches as well as fabulous hiking trails including the trail to Waimea Falls. Other must-sees for the active visitor are Waimea Botanical Gardens, Polynesian Cultural Center and Haleiwa Town.

The winter months bring added excitement when the waves swell to huge proportions and pro surfers from all over the world assemble to compete in the Triple Crown of Surfing. This is a fabulous spectator sport not to be missed if you are fortunate enough to visit during this time. You can always find sheltered beaches and smaller waves to enjoy the water if the huge ones 'aren't your thing'.

Our family loves the North Shore of Oahu! It is what Hawaii is all about . . . a magnificent tropical destination where you can immerse yourself in a warm culture, while experiencing a wide variety of island activities. Our family has lived on the islands of Hawaii for over 20 years. We love the uniqueness of each island, but we are especially fond of Oahu's North Shore. Here we experience an older 'laid back' vibe that is reminiscent of 'Old Hawaii.' Because we are a family of surfers we feel fortunate to live on these beaches that are the 'best in the world.' The North Shore offers so much to visitors and locals alike and we are delighted to share Honu Kai Hideaway with you.

Carol Kennedy purchased this condo in 2012

The Turtle Bay Resort property is one of the most beautiful tropical destinations in the world. Numerous paths lead away from the center of the resort to beautiful sparkling beaches that are amazingly remote. We love watching the horses that graze around the property. We are regulars at the restaurants: Lei Leis for Barbecue Ribs, Caesar Salad with Ahi and Mai Tais. Ono's for Fresh Fish and romantic dinners. The Pool Bar for drinks at sunset. We love the friendly, relaxed vibe of Turtle Bay.

The location of Honu Kai Hideaway sets it apart from all the other condos on the property. We are the upper end unit furthest removed from the other condos around us.

Once inside, you will feel like you are alone in your own treehouse.

PERFECT CONDO RENTAL!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 stayed at this lovely condo for almost 2 weeks. It was paradise! It was beautifully adorned with island inspired, North Shore themed décor & furnishings. It had fantastic views of the mountains and the ocean! It was neat, tidy, orderly and fresh upon our arrival! From the kitchen cabinets to the bathroom, to the corners, you can tell the condo has been cared for deeply! The trade winds provided perfect temperatures while in the condo and we never had any issues with insects. The grounds were lush and well kept. Everything we needed was there. Really appreciated the small touches like sm. and large zip lock bags, tin foil, plastic wrap, washing detergent, beach towels, cooler, occasionally used umbrella for the light rains, blue ices and comfortable beach chairs. There was always excellent and helpful communication with owner. The pics & description were EXACT! This was out 5th trip to Hawaii, 2nd to North Shore. If we go back to North Shore next year, we will definitely choose to stay at this marvelous condo again. The place was perfect and being so close to the Turtle Bay Resort and its amenities, provides an ideal and relaxing vacation. Bravo to Carol for putting so much love in her property! Thank you Carol!

BLISS IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent 2 weeks at Honu Kai and literally loved every moment. First of all, the location is perfect. End unit feels very private, with gorgeous views of golf course/ ocean in one direction and green mountains in the other. Everything on Turtle Bay is a lovely walk (10 min or less away). That includes the hotel, beaches, and our favorite, Lei Leis. (Strongly recommend a cocktail in your hand when you're making that walk!)
We had our 2 year old daughter with us, so the accessibility was much appreciated.
Secondly, Honukai has a great vibe. Carol was so helpful, and the place is beautiful, beachy, and relaxed. It is also very clean. (I saw the previous post about cockroaches. If you've never been to Hawaii, you need to know that if you're a slob in the kitchen, cockroaches will come no matter what). We cleaned up after ourselves and never saw 1 cockroach. Mosquitoes weren't an issue either.
Overall, a great way to experience the North Shore. All the amazing surf beaches are a short drive away. But it's nice to be in a clean, safe, and beautiful place in paradise.

UPDATE IS PAST DUE.

  • 2 of 5
Great location, location, location but . . .
Time to spend a little time on fixing the screens as mosquitoes were a big problem. Could not keep the louvered windows open as screens were not secured.
Well equipped except for beach items.
Needs a good paint job and new deck furniture.

Owner's Response: We're sorry you did not enjoy Honu Kai Hideaway. Your 2 star rating seems extreme. Nevertheless, we take our guest's responses seriously, so I want to address your specific concerns:

1. Mosquitos - Yes we have to share Hawaii with the mosquitos. They are often a part of our tropical environment. However, we have never noticed them being a problem within the condo, nor has anyone else ever complained. But mosquitos can fly in whenever a door opens. If you feel they came in through ill-fitting screens so that you had to close the windows, there are sliding glass doors right next to each louvered window with tight fitting screens that lock. These could have been opened instead of the windows. There are also citronella candles for your use on the lanai. We also provide mosquito repellant and bug spray in our pantry.

2. "Well equipped except for beach items" - We provide two beach chairs, two beach towels and a cooler with ice packs for our guests. Every other beach item that may interest you is available to rent or purchase at Turtle Bay Resort or in Haleiwa town.

3. "Needs a good paint job" - I'm not clear on what you mean by this, since every room in the condo was painted in 2013, except the bathroom.

4. "Needs new deck furniture" - Our lanai furnishings are exactly as pictured on the website. (See photos 4, 5 & 6).

Honu Kai Hideaway is not just a business for us. It is also OUR vacation home. It was purchased, designed, furnished and equipped for our guests as well as ourselves. Much love, care and attention has been placed here. We continually make improvements. We feel fortunate that we have Honu Kai Hideaway and truly love sharing it with others.

WONDERFUL FIVE DAYS.

  • 5 of 5
There was nothing to fault with this beautifully presented condo. It is easy to be sceptical when you look at photos of a property however these truly reflect the delightful outlook and interior. It was so pleasing to open the front door to such a clean and welcoming condo. There was everything we could need and the information and recommendations on Turtle Bay and the local area were so helpful. Corresponding with Carol it was clear she loves the area and really wants her guests to enjoy their stay. We mentioned we were hiring a car at the airport and without us asking, Carol gave us clear and precise directions to get us to our destination. I hope we have the chance to stay again in the future and would happily recommend Honu Kai Hideaway. If you are looking for a home away from home you won't be disappointed.

WINTER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We decided to arrive the day before so we could drive to the condo in the daytime and not have any problems finding it in the dark, using the FOB, etc. Turns out a good thing as I couldn't figure out how to work the FOB at the locked gate of the gated community and someone came up behind us and showed us. The condo was just as described- the only difference was it was better than advertised, the owners had a bouquet of fresh flowers on the kitchen counter, and extras like French Vanilla coffee creamer and jam, olive oil- lots of good books to read., The picture makes it look like the condo is a long way from the ocean but it is the closest in the complex and a golf course is in between- we enjoyed watching the golfers go through the course, and saw how many people fudge when playing the game (smile). Getting to the beach is a little bit far- but worth it- one of the golf course caretakers told me it was not permitted to walk on the golf course. But the good thing about this location is there are plenty of walking trails and I got in about 4 miles a day of walking. My husband and I enjoyed watching the sunset at the Turtle Bay resort while watching also the surfers on some pretty big waves. What a memory. The condo is spacious, clean, has everything needed plus extras, nice to sit on the lanai, living room, eating at the high table watching the golfers. Enjoyed the Shrimp Station: Fuji's, the Dole Pineapple Plantation and horseback riding at a ranch. The beaches are great and food at the resort is wonderful. A wonderful vacation. We had a problem with the T.V. and called Caroline who sent her son over to fix it. It was just something "dumb" we did to the controls. Other extras include a cooler to take picnics out in and two lawn chairs. Thank you for sharing your condo with us.
