Honu O Kai (Turtle of the Sea)

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 9, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

Kailua Kona, HI 96740 United States

Welcome to Honu O Kai (Turtle of the Sea). Enjoy stellar ocean views, miles and miles of Pacific waters from this spacious home located right above Kailua-Kona Village at about a 700 feet elevation, which offers comfortable trade wind breezes. The prevailing trade winds from the west over the ocean and the mountain breezes from the east make this home so comfortable that there is no need for air conditioning.

This single family, four bedroom two level home offers wide open spaces and has a nice 8' deep private pool with bench seating, an outdoor shower, spacious lanais, full size washer/dryer, a large kitchen, and an additional kitchenette on the lower level, fully equipped for entertaining. The home backs up to a large vacant property which translates to peace and quiet.

Just two miles away from the ocean, the home is conveniently located close to many amenities which include a plethora of dining options, a movie theater and shopping centers, all within a 5-10 minute drive. Numerous resort amenities are available just to the South. The Keauhou Bay area offers great ocean access, scuba diving, and sailing, catamaran, fishing charters, sea kayaking and outrigger canoeing.

A few miles down the shoreline you will find Kahalu’u Beach State Park, famous for its encounters with the graceful green Hawaiian Sea Turtles.

If you are seeking local markets and historical context, downtown Kailua-Kona is approximately a 10 minute drive for easy access to shopping, businesses, waterfront restaurants and hotels. Watch the people and the cruise ships come and go from the Kailua Pier. Visit the famous Farmer's Market. Enjoy a shave ice or a cup of Kona coffee, have a light snack or a gourmet meal, buy an inexpensive souvenir or a piece of fine art, book an activity, go for a swim or hang out on the many beautiful beaches.

Up the coast is a busy marina with Hawaii's best scuba diving, big-game fishing, kayaking, dolphin and whale watching and other ocean activities. Honu O Kai is conveniently located, a great home base to explore the many wonders of the Big Island including Volcano National Park, Mauna Kea Observatory, coffee and macadamia nut farms, artist communities, and more!

    a guest from Pahrump, NV recommends this vacation rental

    Property was just as described, even more lovely than the photos. The bedrooms and baths were perfect to accommodate three couples and three kids. We watched the sunset every night from the upstairs lanai--beautiful! We liked being up above the town--a lot quieter than Ali'i drive. It was a great spot to launch our explorations of the various beaches to the north and south of Kona. The managers were very responsive and kind to give us a code to enter the house an hour early when we arrived. I would definitely recommend this property. Thanks for a great stay!

    Leon S from Fremont, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time sightseeing, snorkeling and enjoying family. The property was very nice but to be perfectly honest if you had more than 2 cars you would have to park at the bottom of the driveway and it is very steep. This was not a problem for us as we had 2 cars. The light and fan switches were all labeled which was very helpful. I also was very pleased with Boundless Hawaii :-) We will likely go to this property in the future it was really nice size for the 5 adults and 1 child we had.

    • Manager Responded on 5/5/2017

      Aloha and thank you for the review. We are happy that you enjoyed your visit at Honu O'Kai. We would be happy to host you for your next visit. Remember, returning guests who book directly through Boundless Hawaii will be eligible for a 10% discount!

    Needed a place to stay for 4 couples as we were celebrating 3 of the wives' birthdays. This location handled our large group with ease. 2 kitchens, pool, lanai with view and bbq and close to town. What more could you ask for. We even had 3 rental cars with space to park all 3!

    a guest from Shanghai , Shanghai recommends this vacation rental

    We spend 1 week in this fantastic place with two families and had absolutely a great time. The house was fully equipped with everything you need and all kitchen appliances had been in perfect shape. The overall layout of the bedrooms and living rooms is great and gives enough space for a group of 8 people. The pool was certainly a highlight and we enjoyed every minute in the outside area. Location is nice an quiet in a very good neighborhood. We highly can recommend this place

    Edwin H from Chelan, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Our family (4 couples) had an outstanding stay. We found the home to match the advertised details, clean, excellent customer serve with Boundless Hawaii, and located in a quiet neighborhood. The outstanding view of the Pacific, the pool, and overall comfort of the home made it difficult to leave each day to see the other sights of the Big Island. We did find a few maintenance issues which we addressed with Boundless Hawaii.

    George P from Manistique, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We spent Christmas 2015 at Honu O Kai with our 4 sons and their families, and this house worked out great for us. Having all of the space, bathrooms, and the wonderful pool gave us enough privacy to be together for an extended period of time. We particularly liked the fact that if we didn't want to leave Honu O Kai for the day that we could enjoy the views, the pool, and the sunshine right at home.

    We found the home to be clean, well cared for, and the perfect spot for our large family to use as a base for Big Island excursions. We particularly liked the privacy that we felt with no homes behind us.

    The management made this an easy stay! We showed up from the airport and began our stay, and didn't need to have anything done except garbage pick up (which happened at lightning speed when we asked for it) during our time at Honu O Kai. As a matter of fact we really had no need of any contact with the property management team except for the garbage during the entire 2 week stay.

    If you plan to drive on the Big Island I recommend getting a Costco membership. We saved 60 cents per gallon buying fuel at Costco. Since we drove to the North end, to Volcano NP, to the South end, to Hilo, and virtually everywhere else on the island we saved a ton on our fuel costs by becoming members at Costco. In addition we saved on steaks, burgers, and chicken that we were able to grill at Honu O Kai and have some great family dinners watching the sunset on the Pacific Ocean!

    We had a great stay at Honu O Kai - I cannot see staying anywhere else on the Big Island!
