Luxury 3 Bedroom 4 Bath Ocean Bluff Home W/ Pool - Walk To Beach - Sleeps 6
About Rae-Marie May
Having owned this lot since 1987, and having lived on the island for many years, we had plenty of time to carefully design our retirement home so that every room has a dramatic ocean view. Construction of our dream home was completed in 2015. Now is your chance to enjoy this property before we make the decision to move to it from our current island home five minutes away. After booking you will be given the opportunity to read our personal blog describing plenty of things to see and do on Kauai. Being so close we would be happy to meet with you and offer suggestions to enhance your experience on the Garden Island.
Rae-Marie May purchased this House in 1987
Why Rae-Marie May chose Princeville
Kauai is one of the most beautiful places on earth. We started to vacation here in the eighties and fell in love. We built our home in 1991 and then split our time between San Diego and Kauai for six years. In 2000 we moved over full time. We currently live on 23 acres on the mountain side of the highway. When we can't or don't want to take care of this land anymore we will move to this spectacular oceanfront home which we designed and finished building in 2015.
What makes this House unique
In 1987 we chose this lot because of its views. It is a half acre on the ocean bluff which includes a 130 foot long peninsula that's mostly surrounded by water. No other property in Princeville has this characteristic. If anything, the house has enhanced these views, framing it in every room. When you walk through the front door you are met with a sweeping view of the mighty Pacific. Our most common comment is, "Wow, it's even better than the photos! Being the best hosts we can be is our number one priority. We go out of our way to ensure everything in our home is working perfectly for our guests. We want our home to be comfortable, with all the conveniences you will need, so that your vacation will be easy and worry free. Judging from our reviews and the many returning guests we have, I believe our efforts have made a difference.

Heaven on Earth
This vacation rental is everything you could want when you hoping to find the perfect house. It is clean, large, very well maintained. On top of all that the amenities are excellent. Great wifi, a pool and a hot tub, as well as access to a great little beach a short hike down the hill. We literally just brought ourselves. The area of Princeville is designed around a golf course and is a really safe and well maintained little town. Reminded me of gated areas that you would find in California. A close grocery store and restaurants and Hanalei just a few minutes car ride away for some really cute shopping. We preferred the north shore over the south and I would not hesitate to stay here again if we ever came back! Thanks for allowing people to stay in your amazing house Rae-Marie and Tom!!! It was the perfect vacation for our family.
Mahalo Lisa! So happy your first experience on Kauai was a positive one. I like the north shore better than the south too! We would love to have you back.
This was a perfect experience from beginning to end. Rae-Marie does everything to make this a dream get away. She was easy to communicate with and provided great recommendations for assistance during our stay. Her personal touches make you & your family feel at home. The house has a breathtaking view from every angle and is wonderfully decorated. It is well furnished with appliances, cooking needs, & quite a few extras. It was a wonderfully time for our family and we have memories we will treasure!
Thank you Lucinda. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting your family and we are thrilled we could help with those lasting memories.
Love the ocean!
Sipping coffee, eating breakfast, watching turtles and the occasional dolphin swim by while staring off into the seemingly infinite Pacific is only a small part of what Honu Point offers. It was a prime location for setting off on all of our daily adventures. Beautiful sun filled days spent snorkeling were interspersed with the occasional, warm, tropical rainfall perfect for hiking or spending a rainy day on the beach (you're wet anyway). We will definitely be back! Thank you Rae-Marie and Tom for opening up your home and allowing others to experience it.
P.S. My wife is obsessed with the Albatross now. Multiple books were ordered and were waiting for her when we arrived home.
What a fabulous review of Honu Point's location! Happy to hear about Elisabeth's new obsession. We are so lucky to have the albatross in our neighborhood. It is the only place in the world where Laysan albatross nest on private property! They need all the fans they can get and you know how much I love them. Come see us again!
This property is amazing. My husband and I stayed for his birthday and had a wonderful time. The home is extremely clean, bright and airy with incredible views from every room. The house sits on a bluff and we hiked down both sides to snorkel and swim with the turtles. Watching the sunset every night was spectacular and one morning we saw spinner dolphins. Rae Marie was easy to work with and very thorough. We will definitely stay there again.
Thank you Renee. It’s always disappointing to me when I don’t get a chance to meet my guests in person. So, I’m thrilled to read that you’ll be coming back to Honu Point. Hopefully next time I won’t be on vacation. We’re so glad you enjoyed our property.
Honu Point Paradise
We just finished a 5-day stay at Honu Point. The property is spectacular with amazing views of the ocean. The home is well-appointed and exceptionally maintained. Rae-Marie was wonderful and met with us personally upon our arrival to orient us to the home and provide invaluable tips and advice for our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our day excursions on Kauai, followed by happy hours in the pool and hot tub. Everything about the property was exactly as advertised and more; overall A+. Thank you Rae-Marie and Tom for your vision in creating this amazing place and for sharing it with the rest of us!
Mahalo Sue. Looking forward to your next visit when, hopefully, you can stay a little longer in Paradise.
Breathtaking and Worth It!
This VRBO rental home is spacious and well thought out-everything you need for a great vacation. Our family of four loved every minute. We saw the albatross family with their chick and witnessed whales breaching from the dining room table. Location is terrific for the North Shore activities. Loved sleeping to the sound of the ocean. Pool and hot tub were superb. Rae-Marie has thought if everything. We hope to be back soon!
Thank you Susan. Glad to hear the wildlife showed off for you!
The North Shore of Kauai offers many opportunities for other activities you might enjoy including surfing, windsurfing, hiking, zip lining, horseback riding, Na Pali Coast tours, helicopter rides, lu'aus, miniature golf, garden tours, and, of course, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving. SeaLodge Beach, identified as "A Real Gem" in the Ultimate Kauai Guidebook, is directly below the property and can be accessed via a 15 minute hike.
