‘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.
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.
