Luxury Home with 180 Degree Whitewater Views and Pool
*Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the Kauai restrictions on vacation rentals, Honu Point will not be available, through July 31st, to anyone who is required to quarantine. Mahalo.
Perched on a peninsula 160 feet above the Pacific Ocean, on what many say is the best lot in the Princeville Resort, our property, a newly built, three bedroom home, offers spectacular 180 degree white water views from Makana Mountain (Bali Hai) to the Kilauea Lighthouse on the North Shore of Kauai. Secluded from the street, our 2900-sf private home is a perfect place to experience island living at its best.
Having owned the lot since 1987 and lived on island since 1994, we have had plenty of time to carefully design our retirement home so that every room has a dramatic ocean view. Now is your chance to enjoy this property before we make the decision to move from our current island home five minutes away.
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 (two with CA king size beds and one with a queen size bed) and 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, star gazing in the dark sky, puts the final touches on a perfect Hawaiian day.

The Ultimate 60th Birthday Celebration
My family of six just spent an incredible week at Honu Point to celebrate my 60th birthday. The memories we made there are getting us through these new difficult days of self-isolation due to coronavirus. Our experience was perfect from the moment we first got in touch with Rae-Marie to the sad moment we pulled away from this magical home in our rental car.
Rae-Marie and Tom are so helpful from start to finish. The photographs of the house truly do not do it justice. It is impeccably decorated and is incredibly roomy and comfortable. I cannot adequately describe how the design of this house incorporates the views of the ocean and the sound of the surf. No attention to detail has been spared in meeting the needs of the guests and making them feel at home.
We thoroughly enjoyed lazy days in the spa and pool or whale watching from the gorgeous expansive front lawn that overlooks the cliffs of Kauai with a view of Bali Hai to the west. The kitchen and pantry have everything you could possibly need. We shopped at Safeway and Foodland on the morning of arrival and ate many meals at the house. We also ate out at some wonderful restaurants nearby: Happy Talk, Tiki Iniki, The Hanalei Bread Company, and Makana Terrace at Princeville Resort (all were wonderful with great service and food). We enjoyed going to many local beaches: Ke’e, Pua Poa, Anini, Hideaways, Sea Lodge, and Hanalei Bay (our absolute favorite beach in the world!).
We surfed, snorkeled, and boogie boarded using the items supplied by The Mays. We also rode the bicycles a few times. One of the neighbors, Roger, gave us a lovely walking tour of the neighborhood to introduce us to all of the Albatross babies and parents that hang out. Watching them fly is a real treat!
We golfed one day and took daily family walks all over Princeville. We went to the weekly local market in Princeville and shopped in the charming boutiques. We were fortunate to get a parking pass (must purchase online) and hike the Kalalau Trail on our last day. We also enjoyed playing games at the kitchen table, splashing around the spa and pool, reading on the thoughtfully placed outdoor seats and benches, watching whales spout and breach, and cooking meals together. It was so beautiful and relaxing.
We have vacationed in many five-star houses all over the world but none can top Honu Point! We hope to return to Honu Point in the near future and highly recommend it as the absolute best place to stay in Kauai!
Your thoughtful review brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such kind words.

A Most Memorable Family Vacation At Honu Point
We had the most memorable family vacation at Honu Point. The 180 degree views of the ocean were spectacular. Rae-Marie and Tom have thought of everything that you might need and supply it! We wanted for nothing.
We did so many things in Kauai (zipline, Waimea, beaches), but everyone in my family said our favorite thing we did on our vacation was hanging out at home together at Honu Point.
I have a 21 month old son, and Rae Marie told me about the local Keiki Day, which is Children's Day. We would not have known about this otherwise and had a wonderful time meeting other families who live on the island.
We hope to come back. I don't know how we will top this vacation!
We are thrilled that you and your family created many wonderful memories at our home. Come see us again!

Honu Point Heaven on Earth
We absolutely loved our stay at Honu Point. Even though the Island was closed for Covid our stay as still magical. The house & location was perfect. Evening sunsets on the point, spending our days at the private neighborhood beach. The little beach has excellent snorkeling. We saw whales almost every day. We found a new waterfall close by the private beach. Sea turtles and a monk seal visited us on the beach. The pool provided just the right amount of relaxation and fun for the whole family. Ray Marie and Tom are fabulous hosts, even brought our children Easter baskets. We've never slept better than listening to the crashing surf. Even after a 3 week stay none of us wanted to go home and can't wait to return for another stay.
It was our pleasure to give your family a safe harbor during this unprecedented time. Given that you couldn't experience the whole of Kauai, you had some pretty amazing encounters with nature. We're so happy you enjoyed your time at our home, and hopefully on your next visit you'll have the opportunity to see the rest of what the Garden Island has to offer.
