About Linda Summers
Aloha! I am Linda Summers, owner of the Honu Hale Kai Vacation Rental Home. My husband, Tom and I are originally from Orange County, California. We have been married for over 50 years, have two grown sons & 3 grandchildren. We have been residents of Kauai for over 46 years. We own and operate Summers Realty here in Kapaa and work together as a dynamic team in Real Estate.
Why Linda Summers chose Kapaa
We built this home in 2006 as a vacation home for travelers wanting to experinece the quaint town of Kapaa known for it's charm and unique small town shopping experience. Walk the town during it's "First Saturday" of the month when all the crafters, food vendors and musicians fill the streets with fun and excitement. Walk the oceanside pathway to experience early morning sunrises or evening moon rises as it glimmers on the ocean's horizon. Located near Kapaa's community Oceanside Park where events and celebrations are scheduled throughout the year. Central to all parts of Kauai, this is a convenient location for your stay.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our guests are a few steps away from a calm sandy bottom swimming beach on this ocean front property with a view from the lanai of the ocean and walking path. Enjoy the outdoor hot/cold shower after a long day at the beach. Cross over to get an ice cold Shave Ice or enjoy a variety of casual food offerings to satisfy the appetite. A casual BBQ with picnic table contributes to the casual ambiance of this lovely location. Catch a charter with a local fishing Captain at the nearby boat launch or rent bicycles a few steps away or rent snorkel gear, surfboards at nearby outlets. Kapaa has it all and it awaiting your arrival.

Great place to stay with family or friends. Two separate living areas so it was perfect for us and our son and daughter-in-law. They had their space and privacy and we had ours.
Turtle House Comfort
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Turtle House. The house is very comfortable and with the living spaces up and downstairs, it was ideal for us and my son's family. The house is well equipped with plenty of toys and stuff for the beach. The house is on the same lot with Linda and Tom's place but it's a good size lot and fairly quiet and private. The front lawn bordering the bike trail and beach is big and nice for laying out, people watching or just soaking up the rays and reading a good book.
You are just a few steps to the beach and the same for Kapa'a Town. Your right behind Pono Market as a reference so restaurants and shopping are right there!
Our host Linda and Tom are the greatest and they want you to be comfy in your home in paradise. They have some good information about the island for things to do and see. Some of the places we went to in town, they asked us where we are staying and after we told them, they said Auntie Linda's Place!
We would definitely rent the Turtle House again because you can spend more time in the sun instead of traveling all the time to eat, shop etc.
Mahalo Linda and Tom for a very enjoyable stay!
The whole Acena family!
Mahalo Trula for your kind remarks. Coming from Alaska with 8 degree weather, we were happy you warmed up and enjoyed your stay with us.
Your family was so upbeat and friendly, we truly enjoyed you Trula and
your wonderful family. We hope you will return for another stay at Honu Hale Kai.
Aloha, Linda and Tom
Great place to stay close to the beach
Enjoyed being close to the main street and all the fun shops and restaurants
The house was lovely, the location was beautiful and convenient and the hosts were very friendly and helpful.
Loved this house and location!
We really enjoyed our week in Kapa'a and LOVED the location of this home. The beach it is on is great for swimming and boogie boarding, and it was great to have the use of boogie boards, chairs and umbrellas while we were there! We also enjoyed the walking path all along the water, which was accessed directly from the property. Tom and Linda were great hosts, providing us with bikes for a ride, and fixing the microwave that died on us the same day. Now that is wonderful service! We would love to return again!
Thank you Jacalyn. It was a delight having you, your husband and your sons visiting at Honu Hale Kai. Even though the weather was dicey, you made the most of it and never complained. Thank you for the booking and for leaving the unit so nice for our cleaners. Hope a return to Kauai will happen sooner than later.
