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.

We loved staying in this condo! Overall it was great! Several of the screens don't work or are broken, the guest shower doesn't drain well and the master toilet was difficult to flush! But the location.....unbeatable! We loved being so close to the beach! And the SUNSETS.....beautiful!! We would totally stay here again!! Thanks so much!!!
There can be drawbacks to staying on the ocean, the salt air can damage screens ... since you called these few items to our attention, they are being taken care of. So happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you visit again! Mahalo
The villa at Honu Kai was perfect for the four of us
Located across the street from the ocean or fulfilled my wife’s request to be able to hear the surf as she falls asleep and wakes up. A short walk to Brennecke and Poipu Beach made it easy for our strolls to the beach to sun and snorkle. Brenneckes restaurant was a short walk and good food and drinks. Back to the Honu Kai villa, newer kitchen and appliances, both bedrooms had king size beds as two of us are over 6’ tall. Nice living area and patio overlooking the ocean plus the covered deck off the master suite was well used for morning coffee and pre-sunset cocktails before the walk down to join people watching the sunsets. It was great to have a washer and dryer too. The local management was very responsive and helpful as was Stacey on our pre-arrival information and recommendations of activities and places to eat. Great experience for the four of us who are well traveled.
Wonderful stay in a very nice condo. There are many restaurants near and it is in a beautiful area.
Beautiful property in a great location!
Our winter trip to Kauai was enhanced by the awesome accommodations we had in Honu Kai Villa #3. The view of the ocean was beautiful and we loved being able to hear the crashing waves. The property was well stocked with everything we needed. It was so nice to have beach towels available there so that we didn't need to bring them. The furnishings were very comfortable. The location is within walking distance of Brenneke's Beach Grill, which was a highlight, and the beach where Sea Turtles sleep and a Monk Seal played in the waves in front of us. Our week here was really great!
Best managed, world-class sunset view, great location, easy living place!
We have been coming to Kauai for 20 years and have stayed in almost all the Poipu places as we shop for our own condo. This place has the best, most responsive management by far! The lay-out is perfect for a family. We live in the country, so I was worried about traffic noise and proximity to neighbors. But with the ocean right outside your door it wasn't an issue. The views were amazing. Walking distance to poipu boogie boarding and turtles. Parking easy. Beds super comfy. Kitchen well stocked for cooking. Large washer ,which made beach towel laundry easy. Pool and hot tub. The owners and on-island management worked with us every step of the way, even when we had some self-induced drama (booking the wrong day for flight:~). We did have an issue with porch lights in condo across the street being left on all night, but were able to ask them to turn them off. They hadn't realized these were left on and no idea of the impact on our view and master suite. Might be worth the owners discussing with neighboring condo owners. Pool access gate wasn't working well when we left. Overall, one of the best places we have ever stayed. A great place for two couples or a family. Very livable but with a socks-off ocean view, walkable to beach, good parking and fabulous management! Not a combination we have found anywhere else!!
Just perfect. As a frequent traveler to our long ago home, we try to keep the places we stay to a minimum due to being creatures of comfort. Our first stay here and our expectations were exceeded. Clean, stocked, updateded and plenty of room for our family to relax while listening to the waves crashing on the southern coast. Saw a spinner dolphin with my morning coffee and beautiful sunsets from the back patio with a glass of wine. Highly recommend...exceptional value. Thank you for a wonderful stay. A hui ho.
