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.

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.

Perfect 7 days in paradise.

Exactly what we were looking for at Turtle Bay. Great one bedroom condo, upstairs vaulted ceiling with a ridiculously awesome view of the golf course and even part of the ocean. Easy access to the resort up the road. Everything we needed was in the condo. Even had two beach chairs for us to use! Owners have everything figured out for you in a small users guide for the condo which came in handy. I bought a fan thinking I needed one before we arrived...but I didn't. They have two. Parking is easy and the pool and tennis court are great. Can't wait to visit here again!

Excellent choice for proximity to Turtle Bay features and Haleiva

  • 5 of 5

Dear Carol:

We're almost over our jet lag so we're thinking over our stay at your attractive Hono Kai Hideaway condo and would like to share some thoughts. We appreciated the wonderful outlook on the golf course and view of the distant seascape. There was a lot of natural light in the living room and that was great for daytime reading. We are both readers so that's important to us. The proximity of the beautiful, clean pool was a major advantage since we swam and did pool exercises every day. The kitchen was convenient and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the convenience of having WiFi and TV in the living room, as well as the washer/dryer. We were delighted with the grounds, beaches, restaurants, and bars of Turtle Bay with their spectacular views of the ocean. Each day we drove to Haleiwa for shopping, sightseeing, or an occasional restaurant. The Haleiwa Beach House (we knew it previously as Jamieson’s) was excellent for food and service. All in all, it was a rewarding experience, our first with VRBO, and we thank you for the use of your condo. We also appreciated the convenience the use of the Foodland card!

Absolute Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We found this little piece of paradise purely by chance, after another rental we had booked for our anniversary vacation became unavailable. Bob and Carol go out of their way to look after their guests. We really appreciated their precise driving directions - after a long day, a delayed flight and arriving in the dark, we needed them!

Honu Kai Hideaway is exactly as described and more. The views are to die for and relaxation comes naturally. The property is beautifully maintained with all you could ask for in appliances, etc. However, what the website can't describe is the "Aloha spirit" that you immediately feel when you walk through the front door. We loved the welcome letter left on the bench and really enjoyed being part of Bob & Carol's "family". We enjoyed walking around the estates and looking at the other properties and decided that 'ours' was the best one!

We had a wonderful stay and look forward to coming back in the near future. If you want to experience real Hawaii, then Honu Kai Hideaway is the place!

We were so pleased with our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Honu Kai was wonderful! We had everything we needed and the location was perfect! It was about a 40 minute drive to Honolulu or Wakiki, and that was fine for us. We saw so much more of the island by getting out and about! The condo was clean, quiet, spacious and had amazing views. We would 100% stay there again! Thank you for the perfect spot!

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 alleviated. 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...
