Property description

One of the best locations in sunny Poipu Beach Kauai, Honu Kai Villas Resort is just steps away from the Poipu shoreline and a little over 50 yards to world-famous body surfing Brennecke’s Beach and Poipu Beach Park. The plantation style architecture at this small island oasis by the sea is surrounded by swaying palms, tropical flowers, fruit trees, orchids, and mature plumeria trees accented by well manicured lawns.

Each of the four villas in the exclusive resort enjoys an amazing vantage point for watching the dances of the Spinner Dolphins and Humpback Whales or the trek of Giant Green Sea Turtles on the ocean.

Your private villa is a paradisaic sanctuary. Vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, impeccable accoutrements and meticulous details all work together to incorporate the divine artistry of the natural surroundings into the intimate interior decor. Balconies and private verandas offer quiet escapes for enjoying the masterful expanse beyond.

Honu Kai Villas — also featuring a courtyard swimming pool and spa — is adjacent to Brennecke's Beach, known far and wide for body surfing. With constantly pleasant temperatures that experience miniscule changes season to season, Kauai is a year round destination. Nearby snorkeling, golf, tennis, horseback riding, fine dining and elite boutiques give Honu Kai a charm and romance like no other. We can arrange for multiple party bookings within the four villa complex.
