This stunning villa boasts three ocean-view bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The fourth bedroom, just steps away from the pool, also has its own outdoor bathroom. Relax in the refined comfort of the open-concept floor plan, where the well-appointed kitchen flows into the dining room, which in turn flows into the living space. Each of the common areas has a bright and airy feel, with high ceilings and amazing ocean vistas.

Honu Awa's expansive lanais feature outdoor seating with incredible privacy and Pacific views, where you can sip your morning coffee or enjoy an open-air candle-lit dinner. The private courtyard contains a lovely lagoon-style pool, where you can relax in scenic tranquility. This Hawaiian haven is nestled into a quiet cul-de-sac, giving your family an ideal setting for a peaceful getaway.

Located in the Princeville area of north Kauai, this exceptional villa provides convenient access to renowned Hanalei Bay. The quaint bordering town of Hanalei also offers a variety of restaurant options, along with art galleries, boutiques, and surf shops. And whether you're looking for snorkeling, hiking, boating, stand-up paddling, or golf opportunities, you'll find them nearby on the north shore.

Honu Awa Reviews

A group of 8 stayed for 4 nights on the property and were very comfortable. The household amenities were plentiful, especially in the well-stocked kitchen. The views were spectacular, especially sunrise and sunset. The only note would be the difference in the level of the remodel of the pool bedroom and bathroom was not obvious in the photos or communication with team. Otherwise the concierge team was stellar!

The home was beautiful and the views were stunning. The home is located in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance to Foodland grocery store, shops and restaurants (about a 25 minute walk or short drive). We hiked down to the beach via a trail in the neighborhood and we had the beach to ourselves. Yen was a wonderful host and was very helpful and communicative. We appreciated all the small details - they really thought of everything. Highly recommend this home and I hope to return in the future!

We stayed at Honu Away with a group of friends and had an absolutely amazing time. The property is just as advertised - very clean, spacious, and bright with exquisite views. Yen was extremely helpful and met our friends and was very responsive to any of our questions/requests. We would absolutely return to this delightful turtle cove!

Everything about this place was perfectly lovely. Location, House, Service, & communication. We came in feeling right at home. The photos don't do this place justice. We couldn't have been happier- and would have loved to stay longer. Thank you for the attention to details, and the wonderful hospitality! I will want to stay here again.

This home was absolutely beautiful, just as pictured. It was equipped with everything you could need from kitchen, beach, and pool gear to bathroom amenities. Yen and whole property management team were wonderful to work with. They were incredibly responsive, friendly, and accommodating. They truly made our arrival, stay, and departure so effortless and went above and beyond to assist with anything they could. I cannot recommend this home enough, we already cannot wait to return!

It is hard to have 12 days in Hawaii be more perfect. Absolutely stunning views and location! The house was as advertised! Would come back here anytime.

This house is unbelievably awesome. We spent a week here and were so sad to leave. The views and location were as good as anywhere on the planet. The house is very nice, high quality everything. Cannot say enough things about this. I would not go to Kauai again and stay anywhere except here.

The Princeville area is spectacular and Honu Awa’s location is superb. The views of the Pacific Ocean from every window on the back of the house are just breathtaking. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with high end cooking gear and appliances. Each of the 4 bedrooms had a bathroom. Plenty of space for all! Common living area with large screen TV was also a hit. Fantastic walking paths in neighborhood. Access to tremendous beaches nearby. Helpful and friendly property manager (Yen)! Highly recommend this property!

Our group of 8 (my husband and I, our four adult children, one son's girlfriend and one daughter´s boyfriend) spent ten nights at Honu Awa. This was our third visit to Kauai and Honu Awa was by far the most beautiful house we ever rented on the island. The views are spectacular and we loved the modern interior. Everything was spotless clean! The house has a great size for a group of 8 and is very well equipped. We didn't miss anything. Yen was by far the best host we ever had - and we have rented plenty of houses before. She would respond to my questions within minutes. One night we feared that we would run out of propane for the barbecue, so I texted Yen and asked if there was a spare propane bottle on the property. There wasn't - BUT - within MINUTES Yen had organized that Steve (her maintenance man) brought a spare one. There is absolutely NOTHING to complain about Honu Awa or Yen. We had the greatest vacation and would love to come back.

Yen greeted us warmly when we arrived, walking us through the gorgeous house. There is a view from every room, even when you are doing the dishes. We loved our stay in this home. Our best vacation home experience yet.

Our family of 7 spent our best vacation ever in this beautiful home. It had everything we needed for our week long stay. The views for amazing & the pool was an added bonus for when we came home at night. Yen was super sweet & informative with everything we needed to know about our stay. Highly recommend this vacation home.

We had a family vacation with our three married children and picked this house based on the 4 bedrooms and the pool and balcony views. The house did not disappoint. The house is well stocked with all of the appliances and things you need. We appreciated all of the beach towels and the quality of the bathroom towels. If you plan on staying in the Princeville area, this house is perfect. We had access to a beach which was a short hike down the hill plus all of the great beaches on the north side of the island. Also, the Food Land grocery store is very close. Finally, Yen with the management company was very available although we did not need her very often. I highly recommend this house for your Kauai vacation.

We are a family of 6. The property is spacious, well decorated and appointed. It is well stocked. The kitchen has high end appliances and was a pleasure to prepare our meals there. The views are amazing. It is a lovely and quiet neighborhood. Many nice shops and restaurants within a 5 minutes drive. We paid the daily fee to have the pool heated. It wasn’t working and on the 3rd full day of our stay the pool man came by and fixed it. Thereafter we enjoyed the pool immensely. My family enjoyed our time in Kauai and the property was certainly a factor.

This rental home was all that we expected and more for our first post-COVID family vacation! The pictures truly do not do it justice. Yen was the most gracious property manager/hostess. We arrived to find a lovely fruit and snack basket waiting with a delicious bottle of Hawaiian rum included. Set in a quiet Princeville neighborhood above Sea Lodge Beach with AC in every room, the views are stunning, each morning and evening providing a more spectacular sunrise and sunset than the day before. Four large bedrooms, all with comfortable King sized beds and ensuite bathrooms, plus another half bath off of kitchen/dining area, made this the perfect spot to spread out and relax - waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the crashing surf below. Yen and her team arranged an in-home massage appointment and offered recommendations and concierge service for other local activities. The pool was great for the kids and adults alike. Plenty of pool and beach toys and towels were available for our use. We will be forever spoiled by this amazing Kauai experience and while a bit pricey, it was worth the splurge. Mahalo Yen!
