Property 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 3 bedroom and 3 bath house has 2 bathrooms on the upper bedroom level and a separate bathroom on the lower carport area for showering and toilet after your swim. 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 king 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. 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 or relax on the back patio getting a tan or quietly meditating while emjoying the orchids and 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I live in Los Angeles, Ca.where I own my own company since 2003. I discovered the Kapoho tide pools while exploring the Islands in the 80s and fell in love with the snorkeling and the laid back attitude of the area. I was captain of my university's swim team and here was a place for safe swimming and snorkeling inside a protected reef. I never tire of returning to the area for some RandR and truthfully a little zen experience.

Why the Owner Chose Pahoa, HI, USA:
Honu Kai is so well situated near the water. It is private with a wonderful Hawaiian feeling. There is no "You could be anywhere" feeling here. You know you are in Hawaii with a bit of a nostalgia feeling .
