Overview

About the property

1 BR+1BA - Sleeps 1-2, Upstairs End Unit next to Golf Course

Honu Kai Hideaway is 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 all the amenities offered by a world class resort.

Honu Kai Hideaway is located along the renowned stretch of beaches that make up Oahu's North Shore. The North Shore is known for it's country living, relaxed lifestyle, beautiful surfing beaches, eclectic shopping and pleasurable restaurants.

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.

The condo is fully furnished including 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).

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.

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 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'.

About Carol Kennedy

Our family loves the North Shore of Oahu! It is what Hawaii is all about . . . a magnificent tropical destination where you can immerse yourself in a warm culture, while experiencing a wide variety of island activities. Our family has lived on the islands of Hawaii for over 20 years. We love the uniqueness of each island, but we are especially fond of Oahu's North Shore. Here we experience an older 'laid back' vibe that is reminiscent of 'Old Hawaii.' Because we are a family of surfers we feel fortunate to live on these beaches that are the 'best in the world.' The North Shore offers so much to visitors and locals alike and we are delighted to share Honu Kai Hideaway with you.

Carol Kennedy purchased this condo in 2012

Why Carol Kennedy chose Kahuku

The Turtle Bay Resort property is one of the most beautiful tropical destinations in the world. Numerous paths lead away from the center of the resort to beautiful sparkling beaches that are amazingly remote. We love watching the horses that graze around the property. We are regulars at the restaurants: Lei Leis for Barbecue Ribs, Caesar Salad with Ahi and Mai Tais. The beautiful Roy's Restaurant for Fresh Fish and romantic dinners. The Pool Bar for drinks at sunset and nightly entertainment. We love the friendly, relaxed vibe of Turtle Bay.

What makes this condo unique

The location of Honu Kai Hideaway sets it apart from all the other condos on the property. We are the upper end unit furthest removed from the other condos around us.

Once inside, you will feel like you are alone in your own treehouse.

We have stayed at Honu Kai 6 times and we can’t wait for number 7.. Location location location, it’s perfect, Turtle Bay Resort, the beaches and Lei Lei’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner, excellent.

We would recommend to everyone...

One of our favorites!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve always loved the beauty of this property. And now it’s been improved with rich “wood” flooring throughout. What a lovely surprise!

The many trees surrounding the huge windows have been trimmed back to, once again, reveal the 180 degree view of mountains, golf course and ocean.

We always leave Honu Kai Hideaway feeling refreshed and renewed.

Beautiful and quiet hideaway.

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay and would stay again. Just a couple of items kept us from rating this Five Stars. The bed was uncomfortable and there was no iron. A cloths steamer was provided but it didn’t work.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you, Michael and Shirlene. 'So glad you enjoyed your stay! I'm SO sorry the steamer did not work for you. We will replace it and we will also supply an iron and ironing board for future guests. I would appreciate hearing from you why the bed was uncomfortable? Usually our guests LOVE the bed and many have asked where they can buy one just like it. But I value constructive feedback. So, I'd appreciate hearing back from you on this. Mahalo Nui Loa.

The perfect home away from home to explore the North Shore!

  • 4 of 5

This place gives a nice, clean, pleasant landing after a day of exploring the area. It's the very last condo by the gulf course, so it's nice and private. Big and bright. Lots of windows. Mostly a view of the foothills and palm trees, with golf course and a peak of the ocean. Close enough to hear the big waves at night. It's not new, but it's clean and just what you need! Kitchen has everything. Buy a few groceries and fresh fruit. We found that owners also left a small cooler in the cupboard, so you could pack some water and snacks for a day trip. Many good restaurants within just a very short walk. A little gap in the screen that the mosquitos can find a little too easy, but the many birds sing so beautifully each morning. And the beaches....wow! You can explore for hours.

I would much rather stay here than in a hotel room. Way more homey for a week long stay! Renting a car is the way to go, since you'll want to get out and explore the whole area.

And if you like to watch the waves (and the surfers), this is that place for you. The Turtle Bay Hotel (just 5 minute walk) has the greatest area where people watch the surfers and the sunset!

Owner's Response: Eric and Eileen, We appreciate this thoughtful and detailed review. Thank you! We will check on that screen gap soon, (although those mosquitoes are sneaky). Honu Kai Hideaway will have brand new flooring in June 2018, so an update is on the way! We’re still trying to get our Association to trim the trees outside our windows to open up our view again, but they operate on Hawaii-time :) Mahalo again. Hope to see you again!
