    About this property

    Honu KAI Hideaway - Permitted Vacation Rental

    Adults-only condos in Kahuku with outdoor tennis court
    PLEASE READ!! Honu Kai Hideaway is like a treehouse with views of ocean, golf course and mountains. We are 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 many of the amenities offered by a world class resort. We are located on the 2nd floor. There are 15 steps leading up the stairs. 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. As you may notice by our reviews, we receive many 5 stars. We are so grateful that our guests love our family vacation home as we do! However, we are NOT a 5 star resort according to hotel ratings. For those of you with 4 or 5 star hotel tastes, you might consider other options for places to stay. Honu Kai Hideaway is our family vacation home that we elect to also use as a vacation rental. It is furnished for active people on-the-go. Also, as a vacation rental, we do not offer concierge service. We are happy to try our best to assist you while you stay with us, but we are not a 24 hour concierge service. If you desire this kind of service, please consider staying at Turtle Bay Resort. Guests who enjoy Vacation Rentals over hotels do so because of the privacy and independence that a Vacation Rental offers. The condo is fully furnished including a small 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). Because screened doors and windows are often left open to allow tropical breezes to flow throughout the condo, we have elected to use high quality outdoor furniture in the living room. The frames are made of all weather woven resin wicker for easy and long maintenance. 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. Air conditioning is not offered in the living room, however, we are situated in such a way that maximum tropical breezes blow through the condo. But if you are accustomed to living with constant air conditioning, you might want to consider another place to stay. Honu Kai Hideaway is located along the renowned stretch of beaches that make up Oahu's North Shore. The North Shore is known for country living, relaxed lifestyle, beautiful surfing beaches, eclectic shopping and pleasurable restaurants. 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 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'. * NUC File #: 90/TVU-0519

      Wow! Turtle Bay is amazing. This condo is in perfect walking distance of secluded beaches, low traffic walking trails, and places to see Hawaiian Monk Seals and Sea Turtles along with the best place to watch the sunset (beach to the left of the hotel). 10 min drive to Foodland (take a left back at the hwy). North Shore offers everything you could want for a more relaxed atmosphere. We drove all around the island to experience ALL O’ahu had to offer but realized that we really never needed to leave Turtle Bay resort. Very comfortable bed and places to store clothing in closet. Condo was very clean and had everything we needed to cook meals here. We used the bbq in the pool area which was clean and relaxing (note: buy charcoal) and they clean the grill area nightly. We cooked many meals here and followed the instructions to place food items in the ziplock bags before throwing away- we never saw one bug. We ate and drank on the lanai which had a beautiful view of the golf course and peek a boo spot of the ocean. The trade winds coming thru made the condo very comfortable and the ac in the bedroom was perfect for sleeping. This was a quite and peaceful retreat to enjoy a week away! Thank you for lending us your space!

        • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

        Great accomodation, location and view! Our stay was very comfortable. The place was equipped with all the necessary amenities and was very nicely decorated. We had everything we needed for a perfect vacation and we could really feel that the owners care a lot about their guests!

        Stayed 6 nights in May 2019

        4/5 Good

          Property was nice and the location was amazing!

          We really enjoyed our stay even though the weather was cold and rainy the entire time. The condo has just about everything you could need and the location was perfect! The only recommendations I would make is to get a couple of inexpensive smart tv’s so guests could enjoy movies etc on occasion. The bed frame also needs to be improved as we had to keep taking off the mattress to fix the very cheap wooden legs that kept bending every night. We aren’t fat people so I can’t imagine that bed withstanding a larger couple. The condo was lovely, just making a few suggestions for an even better experience next time!!

          4/5 Good

            Great north shore location

            Sweet, comfortable unit with lots of light. Beautiful view of golf course and ocean. Amazing sunrise spot on the lanai. Quiet, clean, well equipped. Walking distiance to restaurants and safe swimming beach . Thank you!
