Honu Point at Princeville
Don't miss our drone video taken in July 2015! The landscaping is much more lush these days, but you'll get the idea of where we sit in Princeville.
Perched on a peninsula 160 feet above the Pacific Ocean, on what many say is the best lot in the Princeville Resort, our newly built 3 bedroom, 4 bath home offers spectacular white water views from Makana Mountain (Bali Hai) to the Kilauea Lighthouse. Secluded from the street with a private infinity edged pool and covered lanai, our 2900-sf home is a perfect place to experience island living at its best.
From the front door, walk into the expansive living room which frames the ocean to the north and features a sixteen foot built-in entertainment center with a 75 inch Smart TV connected to cable and Netflix Streaming. Each of the three bedrooms with en suite baths boasts unparalleled ocean views, Smart TVs, and quality bedding. A fourth full bath is available in the garage as a mudroom. The large, fully-equipped kitchen hosts new GE Profile appliances, granite countertops, and a killer view down the coast - perfect for any home cook or chef. The 400-sf outdoor lanai faces west where the sun splashes into the ocean from April to September of each year. Walk down the terraced peninsula and look below to watch sea turtles (honu) swimming along the reef, or better yet, if you're a strong swimmer, take a 15 minute hike and swim with them. No sand or exercise for you? Then simply walk outside the front door to a 30 foot infinity edge swimming pool and enjoy the sun and tropical breezes from there. An evening in the hot spa, stargazing in the dark sky, puts the final touches on a perfect Hawaiian day.
Weather is unpredictable on this tropical island, however different times of year offer unique surprises. Winter occasionally brings heavy wind and rain, but, with that, comes glorious rainbows and waterfalls cascading down the mountainsides which are visible from our home. Large swells bring picture perfect waves and, if they're big enough, you can watch the tow-in surfers braving the heights from outside or inside the house. Humpback whales leave the cold waters of Alaska and travel to our islands to mate and have their young. There's nothing quite as magical as watching a 40- to 50-foot mammal breach clear out of the water and splash right in front of your eyes. Finally the awkward-on-land, but incredibly graceful-in-air albatross share our community starting in November as a safe place to find a mate or lay their egg. These sea birds are magnificent, and they soar around the home for your viewing. Once hatched, the large fuzzy babies stay at their nests for months in various yards up and down the street.
Summer is less dynamic, but the warm, calm days allow for more outdoor fun. From our property, you can watch the sun rise and set over the water bringing with it some of the most beautiful colors in the sky. Each evening holds a hope that there will be a "green flash" as the last vision of the sun sinks below the horizon. Cool breezes make the lanai a perfect place to be, especially on Fridays when the cruise ship passes by. Ready for a swim? Jump in the pool or take a short walk down the hill to the hidden "Sea Lodge Beach" where there are trees for sitting in the shade, and a shallow coral reef for snorkeling. Use the bikes to cruise around the neighborhood or drive three minutes to try your hand at tennis or golf. Restaurants, shops, and a grocery store are 3 minutes away. Of course, there's also a whole island to explore with endless numbers of beaches, hikes, activities, and some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. However, because Honu Point has so much to offer, you may well find yourself not wanting to leave our vacation home in Princeville.
