Kahuku 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'.

About Carol Kennedy

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

Why Carol Kennedy chose Hawaii

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

A roomy condo with all the amenities. We spent the first leg of our vacation on the North Shore and this was a great spot. Easy access to the main road to go explore the coast. The bed was comfy and a nice breeze kept things comfortable. The only (minor) complaint is the screen door to the lanai is a bit tough to open/close and some mosquitos got in the condo and were a bit annoying the first night. We made sure to keep the lanai door closed at night after that and never had issues the rest of the time.

At the resort, Lei Lei's is a good lunch spot and we ate at Roy's for a great dinner. We didn't golf but looked like a nice course.

Highly recommend staying here for a trip to the North Shore.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! We have replaced the screen doors with new ones, so the sticking door problem should be eradiated. We appreciate your observations. Mahalo!

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Honu Kai Hideaway and plan to return there again next year.

The views of the golf course, mountains and the ocean are beautiful and sitting on the lani sipping a cold beverage is a great way to finish off a busy day at the beach or a great way to start your day with a cup of coffee.

Everything you need is there, a coffee maker, stove, refrigerator and yes, a dishwasher, who wants to do dishes on vacation, and a bed that's to die for...

It's within walking distance to the Turtle Bay Resort where you have two beaches, 5 restaurant's, golfing, horseback riding, Segway, moped, tennis, bikes and lots of trails to explore and very few people... and for dinning, Lei Lei's is a must, at the golf course

We would and have recommended the Honu Kai to friends...

Beautiful and accommodating

  • 5 of 5

The condo is the best of both worlds. You are sitting on a green and staring at the ocean that is about a 10 minute walk away. Carol has gone out of her way to give the condo the amenities of a first class hotel. It is the first for rent by owner that we have stayed at that providers go "over and beyond" your needs. It was very clean and relaxing. I loved the large sized front loading "smart" washer and dryer! It is on my want list after being spoiled! I like Turtle Bay for swimming but not my favorite beach but the beauty of it is you can travel down the North Shore and find many beaches. I like Haleiwa, Sunset, Chuns and Laie area. Many great local places to eat in Haleiwa. The new Haleiwa Beach House is very good. The Haleiwa Cafe is great for breakfast and it is a very local surfer's hangout. One of our favorite local foods is manapua and pork hash. You can get it at 7-11 next to the check out. So ono!! Thank you for providing a perfect setting for 5 star like stay.
