Overview

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.

Worn out

  • 3 of 5

Living room cushions are worn out and very uncomfortable. Not enough room in shower. Would prefer a chest of drawers in bedroom instead of a desk. Needed a second key and fob, so one person could go to the pool while the other went golfing. Lanai screen door let in mosquitoes. Otherwise the unit was comfortable, convenient, well-stocked, and the view was nice.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your observations. We really do appreciate our guest's constructive criticisms. To answer your specific comments... I will be staying at Honu Kai soon, so I will definitely take special note of the comfort of the living room furniture. Regarding the size of the shower, yes, the whole bathroom is small (as pictured). The shower is a standard size for a tub/shower combination. Regarding the desk in the bedroom instead of a chest...there are drawers and a shelf in the closet that have seemed to suffice for clothing storage. A number of guests have told us that they like having the desk in the bedroom. Again, though, when I'm there, I will reconsider this configuration. Mosquitos...those pesky creatures are always a part of Hawaii. Even if you had a completely sealed off room, they would find their way in when you opened doors and immediately shut them! That's why we provide citronella candles on the lanai. If you keep the candles burning, it can definitely deter them, but never completely get rid of them. It is the tropics! I wish you had texted or called me about needing an extra fob and key. I could have provided you with an extra one during your stay. Again, mahalo for your comments.

Great Experience, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend (now fiance) and I enjoyed a perfect week at Honu Kai Hideaway. The location was excellent and we could walk down to the resort bar and restaurants- but still retreat to our own private area when we wanted to. We had rented a car and drove all around the island, enjoying all it had to offer! Carol was very responsive and helped me when I texted her throughout our stay with quick questions. Only negative was when we were getting a FedEx delivery that required a signature, I was told to coordinate with the property manager. When I spoke to the on-site property manager she was dismissive and rude, very unhelpful and essentially left us to fend for ourselves. My girlfriend and I got engaged on this trip and we were receiving an unexpected (and expensive) bottle of champagne to celebrate from our families! Luckily it worked out but that was my only negative. Certainly not Carol's fault, but something to take note of. The condo itself had everything we needed, would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your response! And yes, receiving mail and deliveries is not common for the condo association to do for vacation guests. Our property manager has done great things in making huge improvements to the overall property. She probably doesn't consider herself a concierge to all the guests who frequent the property. I apologize for her curt tone. 'So glad you enjoyed your stay! We love it too!

Honeymoon Happiness!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful condo for five days to celebrate our honeymoon. The location is ideal, with so much offered at Turtle Bay and on the north shore. We enjoyed the view and spacious living area, having cooking and laundry available, air conditioning, and the pool nearby. The deck was nice for relaxing and enjoying a breeze. It was a quiet and peaceful place to begin our married life together. Detailed information, instructions, and very accurate directions were provided. We highly recommend it!

Once again paradise found...

  • 5 of 5

Like the three other times we have stayed at Honu Kai, the only question was the weather, we knew the condo would be exactly what we needed ... The weather was fantastic and so was the bed, the condo was clean and comfortable, all the amenities of home. A short walk to the resort for their flat bread pizza, yum and to the wedding chapel to watch the sunset, a perfect way to end an evening. The only question then will be, "Why didn't we do this sooner".

We would recommend Honu Kai Hideaway to everyone, everybody needs a little paradise in their life..

Overall we had a wonderful time and were thrilled with our place.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the view, the comfort, the extra amenities we usually need to go and buy such as Kleenexes, laundry soap, extra toilet paper, shampoo and conditioner, shaving cream, body wash etc. it saved us $$ and time that they were there. Thank you! The appliances were wonderful and up to date. It was very clean and comfortable.

If I were to make a suggestion, it would be to replace the bed pillows.

We enjoyed our stay! Aloha! 🤙񖐼􏏼🌺󞠼󝌴
