vacation rental description

Honu Kai which means 'Sea Turtle ' in the Hawaiian language is a beautifully refurbished Hawaiian beach house great for friends and families with all the amenities you could wish for on your vacation. The house has a great Hawaiian feel and is maintained beautifully by the owners and efficient house keeping staff.

If you need more sleeping accommodations or desire more room and water practically under your feet then Hula Cove, our guest studio with a queen sized bed located across the street and directly on the tidepools may be rented separately or in conjunction with Honu Kai.

The snorkeling entrance to the largest of the tidepools is across the narrow street a mere 25 steps from the front of the house. You can sit on the private front deck of the house gazing at the water and enjoy fresh papaya picked from the nearby papaya plantations or relax in the hammock downstairs with a good book during the heat of the day. Don't worry about curious passerbys as the large Areca and hibiscus hedge shields the house from the afternoon noise and business of the tidepool sunbathers and swimmers.

Maybe you would like to take a bike ride thru the community followed by a restful soaking in the Jacuzzi in the private backyard under a full moon with the tiki torches giving only enough light to illuminate the coconut palms.

When it's time to turn in enjoy the sounds of the waves crashing on the reef in the distance or maybe the rain pounding on the house's tin roof. In this part of the world there is only the sounds of nature at night.

traveler reviews for this kaimu bay house rental

excellent stay at Honu Kai

Review submitted: May 22, 2013   Date of arrival: April 6, 2013

Our family of four had an excellent stay at Honu Kai. From booking inquiry through departure, we felt very well taken care of. The pictures don't do justice to how close the house is to the tide pools, we simply strolled about 150, 200 ft down the street with our 5 yr old boys to get our snorkeling fix in. The house was immaculate, and very well stocked, we ate in nearly every meal and never felt we were lacking any kitchen gear. There must be about 5 or 6 ceiling fans which provided plenty of nice cool breeze on hotter days and made sleeping very comfortable. We were amazed by how well the unique sounds of the local frogs at night lulled us to sleep (this is coming from a light sleeper). To top it off the house comes with a lot of beach toys, rafts, snorkel gear, beach cruisers, chairs etc for use. Last but not least, the downstairs separate full bathroom was very convenient for washing kids off before going into the main house after snorkeling excursions. All in all, great place, great location, and great personal service and attention by the booking manager!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children

Owners response: We are always happy when our guests enjoy their stay at either Honu Kai or Hula Cove. For some people it is a trip of a lifetime so we try to make this vacation as special as possible. Honu Kai is going thru an : "updating " in the next few weeks, but we will strive to keep that special "old Hawaiiana feeling " in the furnishings and ambiance.

Fell in love with the east side

Review submitted: July 22, 2012   Date of arrival: July 12, 2012

We had a great time on the east.side of the island at this house. This cute, comfortable cottage was accurately described in the listings. Very well stocked! We loved snorkeling in the tide pools ( the best snorkeling we did on the entire island) ! Great location - right across the street from the tide pools. We were grateful for the hot tub after snorkeling. VNP was an easy drive away and amazing! I highly recommend eating at Kaleo's in Pahoa for dinner. Terrific food and service! The drive to Kalapana down red road was very cool. Fun drive among the beautiful rainforest trees and shoreline. Thank you!

Sutherland's

Review submitted: July 8, 2012   Date of arrival: July 5, 2012

This place was great, the pictures don't do the rental justice. Very clean, Had bikes,snorkles,rafts basically anything you needed was here. No a.c. but the trade winds kept the house cool. Very safe area. Literally steps away from the tidepools which are AMAZING! Were from oahu and the tidepools that are by this rental is the best snorkling we have ever seen!! Also the owners are very easy to be in contact with, always emailed right back which was great. They also have a binder full of detailed places to visit around the island which was nice to read. Also we had no cell service here which was kinda good because you shouldn't be on your cellphone on vacation anyways lol. The only service that really worked was AT&T. Sprint,verizon didn't work. But they do have a house phone for local calls. They do have WIFI so atleast we had that! :) The fridge had all your food condiments so all we really had to buy was meats or whatever we were cooking. & They do have a large grill. Overall great place. I could go on and on. We are already talking about coming back to this rental. We were sad to go! Def recommend to anyone!
