About the property

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.

Why Carol Kennedy chose Kahuku

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.

Amazing location and grounds impeccablecay managed.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a 3 night stay (wish we stayed longer) taking in amazing scenery, beaches, jogging trails and historic landmarks and sunrises. Honukai Hideaway is everything you need to stay tucked away or go on all day adventures and return in the evening to comfort. Doing our own cooking was nice as we were able to choose healthier options and we saved a lot of money not eating out for every meal. The condo was very clean with comfortable bed and the constant breeze was amazing. I would definitely recommend to anyone and hope to be back soon!!

Perfect little getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week in early March and everything was just ideal for us. The kitchen is well equipped which is important for us since we like to mostly cook our own meals. Beautiful view of the golf course from the large living room windows and the lanai was nice although it was pretty breezy while we were there so we didn't sit out there much. Large super comfy bed with soft linens (I checked the label so I can get some for myself, lol!) and the trade winds coming through meant we didn't need ac at all. We also appreciated the washer and dryer to do up a bit of laundry.

Lots of walking trails all around Turtle Bay resort and we made good use of them. Kuilima Cove beside the resort is a nice safe place to swim and snorkeling was pretty good with lots of pretty fish to see. There was only one beach chair at the condo and we couldn't find an umbrella but were able to get some shade under trees at the beach. For more adventurous snorkeling we drove a little west to Shark's Cove and the tidepools. There was only one day that I could go in Shark's Cove as the waves are too big in winter but the amount of fish in there is amazing! Also recommend a hike in Waimea Valley, we really enjoyed that and had the best (and cheapest) fish and chips in the little restaurant there.

All in all we were very happy with our stay and the only thing we would mention is the living room furniture is a bit uncomfortable but that's a small thing and didn't detract from our overall experience. Thanks so much for sharing your sweet condo with us!

Honu Kai Hideaway Gem

  • 5 of 5

if you want a quiet, relaxing, place to enjoy Hawaii, Honu Kai Hideaway is perfect place. The corner unit overlooks Tom Fazio golf course and has a beekaboo view of the Ocean. Although furniture and finishings are somewhat dated, everything is clean, and comfortable. good snorkeling in Bay at Turtle Bay Resort and lots of opportunities to see surfing close by.

Good Value

  • 4 of 5

Well stocked. Beach chairs / towels. Close to all the amenities of Turtle Bay and beaches. The unit is a bit outdated in some areas but for the price in comparison to the resort it is a good value.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your comments. And you are correct in saying that Honu Kai Hideaway is not an upscale condo. And it is not our goal to offer family, friends and guests a 5 star condo. We strive to offer our guests a very clean, well kept and well stocked environment for your visit with us. We do not strive to offer the newest, most upgraded condo in furnishing and style. Honu Kai Hideaway is, in essence, a beach retreat, where guests can come in after an active day outside, clean up and relax for the evening or go out for dinner and drinks. And you are also right in saying that if we were to compete with the more upscale market in furnishings and a total remodel, we would not be able to offer the same prices. We make changes every year as our budget allows. Our family enjoys Honu Kai Hideaway several times per year and we are happy to offer it to other vacationers as well.

Favorite condo in Kuilima Estates!

  • 5 of 5

Honi Kai Hideaway is part of the Kuilima Estate Condos which are situated on the Turtle Bay Resort property. Over the years, we have stayed in a number of these condos. What we love about Honu Kai Hideaway is that it is situated in such a way that one feels quite secluded from all the other condos. Also, there have been huge windows added that opens up this condo to the light and wonderful views unlike any of the other condos that we've seen. Furnishings are comfortable and lovely. Bathroom is small but adequate. Kitchen and bathroom are always well-stocked. We just bring our suitcases and food!
