Honu Kai Hideaway is like a treehouse with views of ocean, golf course and mountains. We are 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 many of the amenities offered by a world class resort. We are located on the 2nd floor. There are 15 steps leading up the stairs.

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.

As you may notice by our reviews, we receive many 5 stars. We are so grateful that our guests love our family vacation home as we do! However, we are NOT a 5 star resort according to hotel ratings. For those of you with 4 or 5 star hotel tastes, you might consider other options for places to stay. Honu Kai Hideaway is our family vacation home that we elect to also use as a vacation rental. It is furnished for active people on-the-go. Also, as a vacation rental, we do not offer concierge service. We are happy to try our best to assist you while you stay with us, but we are not a 24 hour concierge service. If you desire this kind of service, please consider staying at Turtle Bay Resort. Guests who enjoy Vacation Rentals over hotels do so because of the privacy and independence that a Vacation Rental offers.

The condo is fully furnished including a small 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).

Because screened doors and windows are often left open to allow tropical breezes to flow throughout the condo, we have elected to use high quality outdoor furniture in the living room. The frames are made of all weather woven resin wicker for easy and long maintenance.

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.

Air conditioning is now offered in the living room! We would appreciate your assistance in saving energy by turning off the air conditioning when you are not there. Mahalo for saving Hawaii’s energy.

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

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 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'.

HONU KAI HIDEAWAY provided a beautiful view of the golf course, flowers and flora along with the Ocean. We so enjoyed enjoying mornings and evenings on the deck! It was spotless upon arrival, well stocked, and spot on as to the description and photos on VRBO. The hosts were excellent in communication and going out of their way to accomodate a special request of ours due to a wedding. If we are able to return to the beautiful island of Hawaii we would like to return to this HIDEAWAY!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Honu Kai Hideaway. It was comfortable and clean. A great spot for our stay on the North Shore. We appreciated the coffee and the beach towels available to use.

We had a wonderful time staying in Hono Kai on our 12 day vacation at Turtle Bay. The condo was very well equipped, very clean, and a great location. The host, Brian, was very accommodated. We hope to stay in Hono Kai again, if available the next time we visit Turtle Bay.

This is one of those reviews you kinda don't want to write because you kinda want to keep it secret. But, it's just such a nice place in such a great location, and the owners were so quick to respond to any queries that it's just not fair to keep it secret. The bed is super comfortable, you are within walking distance to both Turtle Bay beach, and other public beaches (current might be strong depending on time of year, know your limits in the water), lots of hiking trails, there's a fine pool (depending on the time of year it could be crowded), the kitchen has everything you need, you are 15 minutes from all kinds of food trucks. Pipeline is up the street if watching surfers getting pounded is your thing. To try your own hand at surfing, there's a very good surf school right at Turtle Bay as well. Also, the golf at Turtle Bay is wonderful (not cheap mind you! but a very nice course). With the windows open you can even hear the surf in the distance at night. The owners live on the island and clearly care about the experience of their guests with very prompt responses.

Judy and I had a great experience at the condo unit and loved Turtle Bay and the No Shore of Oahu! Brian and Alia were excellent hosts and replied immediately to any of our text/email questions. We highly recommend staying here! Don & Judy - East Haddam, CT

We were able to walk from the condo across the golf course to the ocean, as this part of the golf course was closed. This is one of the best locations in the complex. The condo looks the same as the pictures

This condo was very clean, well appointed and located in a lovely area. I would not go to enjoy the pool area. But go for the ocean and gorgeous beaches.

Drinking our morning coffee on the veranda, with the beautiful views and just the sounds of the birds is the only way to go. Instead of a cramped hotel room with thousands of other guests, we had this. Lots of room, air conditioning was wonderful. Whatever they say you need it in Oahu.That is the way to spend a vacation. We had the pool to ourselves. Minutes from Turtle Bay. All the best beaches close by, hiking, great food. This is our second stay in the Turtle Bay area. No place else.

This condo was exactly as listed! My husband and I had a wonderful and relaxing stay. The condo has a great location within the resort. It had a super comfortable bed, beach chairs that we were able to borrow and a relaxing lanai overlooking the golf course. We are already planning to book this condo again next year.

We really enjoyed this property. It was well put together with everything we needed and then some. The bed was super comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped. Even sharp knives!! We appreciated the vintage Hawaiian vibe the Kennedy’s curated. Breezes flowed from front to back keeping the space fresh and cool. Although we did take advantage of th a/c to sleep at night, so that was a bonus. Nice job Kennedy’s and thank you.

I really enjoyed this condo as it was conveniently located for getting to all the beautiful beaches and downtown Haleiwa. Awesome view of golf course and view to ocean. Also enjoyed the short walk to Turtle Bay Resort hotel and the beach there along with the pool side bar. Very pleased! Thanks Rodney

We had a wonderful stay, thank you so much! The owner was very responsive and flexible with travel plans. The Hideaway was a perfect spot to call home during our stay, Mahalo!!

The location was perfect for golf, nearby food trucks, Kahuku Farms (try their banana bread, it's delicious), and a very short walk to the beach. Unfortunately the next door neighbors were loud (crying baby and screaming kid), but the owners can't control who the neighbors are. Most of our time was spent away from the condo anyway, except for the first day waiting for the airline to deliver a mishandled bag. The air conditioning in the condo worked great!

It was perfect for us. Clean, comfortable, well-stocked and beautiful. You can eat at the table while looking at the ocean. The balcony is a plus... We loved our stay in this unit!

This is our second visit to this property and it didn’t disappoint. The grounds are beautiful, the hotel is a gorgeous place to enjoy coffee while watching the surfers and the sunsets are breathtaking. The North Shore has a lot to offer and this condo is the perfect spot to have as your home base. The Polisners, Cape Elizabeth Maine

Great stay always!!! I believe this is our 5th trip at this condo and it’s the best every time! Thanks you!

The owners really made sure the process was clear and easy to follow. Had a minor issue at the unit during the week and owner was quick to respond and fix the issue. Place is located right next to the Fazio golf course that is currently closed but they are maintaining the course except for the bunkers which are being renovated. Kind of nice to not have to listen to golfers playing through all day and I am a golfer. Turtle Bay resort is close by and I would recommend getting a pineapple martini while you are there. Next time we come to Oahu, I would plan around staying at this place.

This was our second stay at Honu Kai Hideaway. It is the nicest, best located and has the best view of all the many condos we’ve rented at Turtle Bay over the last 15 years. The host Brian is kind, responsive and helpful. Everything you need is provided and recent upgrades make it even nicer.

Beautiful, clean space! Central to north shore and a great home base for exploring the island 🌈 breeze was lovely, and the mornings & evenings were peaceful and quiet . We very much enjoyed our stay!

The Honu Kai Hideaway is perfect spot for a Hawaiian vacation. The condominium was fantastic. We loved everything about the place. We loved how genius of an idea it was to have the wicker furniture in the living room. The condo is a nice walk to beaches. You can catch both a sunrise and a sunset from the point close by. We both really enjoyed Kawela Bay. We highly recommend visiting at sunset. The turtles would pop their heads up to say “Hi”. It was pretty great. Thank you for a wonderful home to spend our Hawaiian vacation. The memories we have will be cherished for a lifetime.

This was perfect for our visit to the North Shore! It has great views of the golf course and even offered views of the coast. Will definitely book this place again.

We were kicked out of Turtle Bay resort due to construction. What a perfect find and it beat the resort price by far. Close to the beach and golf courses. Close to other towns, beaches, and food trucks (YUMMM) too. Having the washer/dryer and kitchen areas were perfect. Loved leaving sliding doors open at night for the tradewinds to blow through. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy.

Great accomodation, location and view! Our stay was very comfortable. The place was equipped with all the necessary amenities and was very nicely decorated. We had everything we needed for a perfect vacation and we could really feel that the owners care a lot about their guests!
