Kailua Kona, HI 96740 United States

Welcome to Honu O Kai (Turtle of the Sea). Just two miles from the ocean, makes this spacious, four bedroom home one of the best places to stay on the Big Island. This two level home offers wide open spaces, two kitchens, both big enough for all your cooking creations, an 8’ deep private pool with an outdoor shower, spacious lanais, and a cozy living room that has ocean views from the comfort of your couch. Located at a 700 ft elevation it provides comfortable trade wind breezes. The master bedroom and back bedrooms are both equipped with wall unit air conditioners for your comfort. The home backs up to a large vacant property which translates to peace and quiet and is hands down one of the best places to stay on the Big Island after a day of exploring!

Near town yet far enough away to give the true flavor of Hawaii. Conveniently located close to downtown Kailua Kona. Explore downtown historic Kailua Kona. The town of Kailua Kona "hides" some very important Hawaii Island historic spots. Both the Hulihee Palace and the Mokuaikaua Church are located on Alii Drive. King Kamehameha I spent his last years living near the current site of the King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel until his passing in 1819. The Ahuena Heiau, located on the grounds of the hotel, is a reconstructed temple rebuilt by Kamehameha himself and is on the register of National Historic Landmarks.

Watch the people and the cruise ships come and go from the Kailua Kona Pier, with access to Hawaii’s best scuba diving, big-game fishing, kayaking, dolphin and whale watching. 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 at the beach. The pier is the starting and finishing point of the Ironman World Championship (October) and a great place to watch the sunset. Everything you need and want is readily available in the heart of the quaint Kailua Kona town.

Honu O' Kai is conveniently located, a great home base to explore the many wonders of the Big Island of Hawaii including the Volcano National Park, Mauna Kea Observatory, coffee and macadamia nut farms, artist communities, and more!

This property is equipped with Free WiFi.

    a guest from Camarillo, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This house was a perfect place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our family. The house was large enough to give plenty of space to the 3 families and the view was spectacular. The neighborhood is very quiet, in fact I think the young grandchildren probably woke up the neighbors when they wanted to be in the pool at 7:30 in the morning! Didn't get any complaints though! The house was comfortable, spotlessly clean and exactly as pictured. We had a wonderful experience. And the 4th of July fireworks viewed from the upstairs deck were fabulous.

    Tammy M from Union, MI recommends this vacation rental

    This home is well situated for excellent views of the Kona coastline! Most of our family started their day gathered on the deck talking, eating, and enjoying the beautiful weather and views! The home's pool was another gathering spot after long days of touring the Island! The home itself is beautifully decorated with large, open spaces inside as well as many well landscaped and designed spaces outside in the yard and on the decks! The pictures are an accurate representation of this home and I would highly recommend it as a place to stay in Kona!

    a guest from NEWCASTLE, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Honu O kai was the perfect rental. The house has a real nice layout with three bedrooms and a small entertaining room downstairs and the master bedroom, main kitchen and great room upstairs. There is a great wrap around deck off the great room upstairs with 180 degree views of the ocean. The deck has ample seating and a BBQ. The house was clean and well equipped. The pool and deck area are large and well thought out.

    a guest from Moorpark, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Turtle of the Sea was the perfect house for our groups vacation. We had a total of 9 people 6 adults and 3 children under the age of 12. The view from the house is perfect, it was a great way to wrap up a day at the beach by coming back and watching the sunset from the balcony. The house was clean and actually has 2 living rooms and 2 kitchens. It was a 5 min drive to the nearest beach as well as shopping. I would absolutely stay here again! Wish I had more vacation time!

    Patricia P from Des Moines, IA recommends this vacation rental

    We had 7 in our party. My husband and I stayed in the spacious upper bedroom and the others were downstairs. Our son had a comfortable room to himself; our daughter and her husband had an equally comfy room; and the grandsons stayed in the room with twin beds. The upstairs deck is fabulous for sunsets and ocean view, and the living room was roomy enough for all of us. The pool was excellent, and with an ocean view. We appreciated the snorkel and swimming gear. The driveway was a bit of a shock, but we made it in our 7-passanger van with no problem.

    • Manager Responded on 3/15/2018

      We're happy to hear the home was perfect for your party of seven! The driveway is step, however it is the sole reason the home has unobstructed views of the Kona coastline. We'd love it if you returned next year for another enjoyable trip to Kona!

    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.

    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

    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!
