Overview

Puna District House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 TO 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 1 TO 6)

Honu Kai which means 'Sea Turtle ' in the Hawaiian language is a beautifully refurbished Hawaiian beach house great for friends and families with all the amenities you could wish for on your vacation. The 3 bedroom and 3 bath house has 2 bathrooms on the upper bedroom level and a separate bathroom on the lower carport area for showering and toilet after your swim. The house has a great Hawaiian feel and is maintained beautifully by the owners and efficient house keeping staff.

If you need more sleeping accommodations or desire more room and water practically under your feet then Hula Cove, our guest studio with a queen sized bed located across the street and directly on the tidepools may be rented separately or in conjunction with Honu Kai.

The snorkeling entrance to the largest of the tidepools is across the narrow street a mere 25 steps from the front of the house. You can sit on the private front deck of the house gazing at the water and enjoy fresh papaya picked from the nearby papaya plantations. Don't worry about curious passerbys as the large Areca and hibiscus hedge shields the house from the afternoon noise and business of the tidepool sunbathers and swimmers.

Maybe you would like to take a bike ride thru the community or relax on the back patio getting a tan or quietly meditating while emjoying the orchids and coconut palms.

When it's time to turn in enjoy the sounds of the waves crashing on the reef in the distance or maybe the rain pounding on the house's tin roof. In this part of the world there is only the sounds of nature at night.

Absolutely PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was beautiful! The house was so nice and so well kept! The owner of the property went above and beyond to provide everything we needed, from bicycles, snorkling gear, floats, underwater pouch to take pictures in the tidepools.the location is so close to the tidepools. The experience was far better than we ever expected!! We will definitely be back!

Beautiful, Well-Situated Kapoho Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Why park a half mile away and trudge in? With this rental, you are just across the street from mind-blowing snorkeling. We have scuba dived and snorkeled in Bali, Thailand, Vietnam, Oahu, and all over the Caribbean. Although the tide pools may look unassuming, the snorkeling in Kapoho is unbelievable and well worth the trip. Best in the state, in my view (and I was born and raised Oahu). This house offers ridiculous convenience to that trip, so you can do it several times. And the house is very comfortable. The owner is easy to deal with and responsive to any concerns you might have,, and you will delight in the gourmet kitchen that includes everything you could ask for. Snorkel gear downstairs, along with beach towels. An unbeatable price. Trust me -- spend at least two nights here. A very convenient launch point for Volcanoes that gives you convenience, value, and an amazing, memorable diversion.

Beautiful house in a unique, peaceful location.

This house is nicely decorated. The location adjacent to the tide pools is excellent if you enjoy snorkeling and all of the necessary equipment is provided. A very quiet and peaceful location for a relaxing vacation.

Mike was very hospitable and kind. The property and whole area is lovely. The kids really enjoyed the backyard pond and going to the tide pools which was easily accessible. We'd definitely stay at Honu Kai again!

Mahalo,

Courtney

Honu Kai exceeded our expectations!

It was perfect! The house was beautiful and fully equipped with everything down to snorkel gear, location was amazing, and lastly, Mike kept things personal and was very prompt with any of the concerns I had. I am definitely keeping Honu Kai an option for any of my future inquires.

Beautiful Ocean view

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay while on Holiday. It is centrally located for us to see all the Big Island has to offer plus the Tide Pools are just accross the street. The kitchen is well stocked. The bathroom has plenty of bath towels. Beds were very comfortable. Dinning area gave us plenty of room for meals. We loved sitting on the patio every night listening to the Ocean & the Croques. Thank you Michael for the wonderful accommodates. I highly recommend this beautiful home.
