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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
If you want to be central to everything in Kaua’i this is your place. Also, beach and swimming right out the front door!
I’ve stayed at quite a few VRBO and AirBNB places in the last 3 years - this place clearly rates in the top 2 places (probably number one but a tossup with a Airbnb farmhouse in rural New Zealand).
This place has everything a visitor to Kauai needs. Great location, excellent management, clean and stocked with everything beach goers need. Only downsides: close to central Kapa’a (some noise) and no AC (a bit hot in the afternoon and evening). Owners added fans everywhere so the heat was overcome.
Owners are EXCEEDINGLY accommodating and responsive - best ever! Parking great, safe area, great for kids. Bring food and grill out near the shore line on the east shore of Kauai. Centrally located so you are within reach of everything interesting to do on the island.
We’ll definitely be back!
Great family vacay!
We had a wonderful time here on our family vacay!! It rained almost everyday but we still had a wonderful time. Owners are very welcoming and accommodating! House is perfect for a family...we had 6 people! Great location to the beach and a baby beach just a short walk down the way. Shopping and restaurants all very close too! Highly highly recommend!!!
Wonderful week in Kapaa
Our family of five had an amazing stay in Kapa’a. Linda and Tom’s house was perfect for us. The view each morning was beautiful and the neighborhood was incredible with shops and yummy food just steps away.
The space was perfect for our family because our three grown kids hung out until the wee hours downstairs while my husband and I slept happily upstairs.
In all honesty, I couldn’t have designed a better place for us.
Thank you so much for sharing, Linda and Tom.
Thank you Karen for enjoying the house and commenting on the divided living areas. Adults upstairs while the kids have their own space downstairs.
I'm happy your family enjoyed Honu Hale Kai celebrating the graduates in the family.
Mahalo nui loa,
Linda and Tom
Perfect place to stay in Kauai
This property is fantastic! Two level home just steps from a quiet beach, the 4 mile beach path, bike rentals, and all the shops and restaurants of Kapaa. Outside seating on the upper floor deck with cool breezes and ocean view, and more outdoor seating on the ground floor. Private parking area, and property owners next door to help with anything you need. Beach chairs and umbrellas ready to grab by the back door for your quick walk to the shore. About one mile from the grocery. And since Kapaa is centrally located on the east shore, easy drive to all the other wonders of the island, from North Shore to South Shore to Waimea. Best place to stay on Kauai!
Great Family Place
We thoroughly enjoyed this house. We thought it was nice to have lawn space out front for our grandson to run around and a picnic table for outdoor meals. The deck all the way around was nice for anytime of day. There was a great selection of beach chairs, etc. Great pizza & shave Ice right across the street was an added plus. Tom & Linda were very kind and accommodating to our family.
