We had an amazing spring break at this awesome house! It was perfect for two families with kids - we loved swimming in the pool and watching the geckos between adventures and beach days. The deck with its phenomenal view was an amazing spot for coffee every morning and listening to frogs in the evening. The hosts were super responsive when we had questions and made extending our checkout time super easy when we decided we wanted to stay just a little bit longer. This house was a great base for exploring Kona and the surrounding area, and we were always happy to come back to it when we were done exploring. ?

Thank you for your amazing review! We are thrilled to hear that you and your families had an unforgettable spring break at our house. It sounds like you made the most out of your vacation by enjoying the pool and observing geckos in between beach adventures. We are delighted that you also had a chance to appreciate the incredible view from our deck while sipping on some coffee or listening to frogs in the evening. We always strive to be responsive to our guests’ needs and we are glad that we could assist you while extending your check-out time. We take pride in being a great base for exploring Kona and the surrounding area and we look forward to hosting you again in the future!

Absolutely beautiful, spacious home with gorgeous views in an ipscale neighborhood. We spent our mornings and evenings overlooking the ocean and enjoying the soft breezes and the enjoyable sounds of the Coqui frogs from the Lanai. Spent downtime when we weren't touring in the swimming pool. Very close to all the shops, tour locations and restaurants on Ali'i. Highly recommend this place, but maybe not during spring break when the price doubles. I would gladly stay here again. Recommendation: grab some paper plates, plastic wear and storage bags for leftover foods. we had 8 people and were running the dishwasher a lot.

Thank you so much for your amazing review! We are thrilled to hear that our home exceeded your expectations, and that you enjoyed the beautiful views and peaceful sounds of the Coqui frogs from the Lanai. We couldn't agree more that spending some downtime in the swimming pool is the perfect way to relax and unwind after a long day of touring the area.We're also glad to hear that you found our home to be conveniently located close to all the shops, tour locations, and restaurants on Ali'i, making it the perfect home base for your adventures. As for spring break, we understand that it's a busy time and our prices reflect that, but we're so glad you still found our home to be worth it!We appreciate your recommendation about bringing paper plates, plastic wear, and storage bags for leftover foods. It's a great idea to help reduce the amount of unnecessary dishwashing, especially if you have a large group of people staying with you.Thank you again for choosing our home for your stay and for sharing your experience with others. We hope to welcome you back soon for another fantastic stay!

Thus property us absolutely fantastic! Enjoyed everything! The only thing I would mention is the shower doors in master bath do not open wide enough for a large person like myself! I did make it work though! Everything else excellent!

Amazing views and spacious house!

by Minee R

Amazing views and spacious house! There was more than enough space for everyone and it was stocked with everything we could need. Check in was easy and house was clean and just as described. One thing to be aware of is the extremely steep driveway, it can get slippery when it rains!

by LaChanda B

We really enjoyed our time! Elite Pacific was easy to communicate with and very accommodating with us during our early check in and late check out. The house was beautiful, comfortable, and spacious for our family of 7. The pool was cleaned throughout our time there too. The view from the balcony is breathtaking!!! Would recommend this sopt and company to anyone. They also connected us with Hawaii Concierge services and we had activitylies scheduled weeks before our vacation.

Great Home For Families

by David B

The house was equipped with everything needed during our stay. Very spacious and roomy. The views are amazing! The only complaint from some family members, we're from those who stayed in bedrooms that did not have an in-wall AC unit. Management was nice, and were quick to resolve the minor issues we had during our stay. Overall, GREAT property. Definitely recommend for big families.

Hawaii Wedding Vacation

by Melissa Z

We absolutely loved our stay at the Honu O Kai! What a beautiful view! We were in the area for our daughter’s wedding so we really didn't spend as much time at the house as we'd liked to have, but the time there was always relaxing. It was very nice to take a dip in the pool after a long day of wedding activities. We appreciated the items made available to us during our stay including an ice chest, sand toys and beach chairs to name a few. Next time we're in the area, we'd love to stay at the Honu O Kai again.

Perfect space for a large family

by Bobbi M

This was the perfecgt space for our famiy for a week. Seven adults, lots of privacy and places to either be together or if someone needed privacy, there were many options. 4 large bedrooms, 3 baths. Master suite is lovely with wonderful views. The pool was great to return to each afternoon after the beach or site seeing. I think I counted 13 ceiing fans to help keep the air moving! Large living room and dining area. Kitchen allowed multiple "cooks" to all be working at the same time. Lots of pool and beach toys in the garage and a large washer and dryer.

This property was awesome! The view was amazing of the ocean and Kona below. The pool was enjoyed by our whole family. My 3 year old grandson said it was the best part of the trip. Lots of pool toys are available in the garage. We all had a lot of room to spread out in the common spaces. The space behind the house has tropical land which has wild turkeys and other birds. Lots of gekkos and frogs can be found around the yard. The location was a short drive to downtown restaurants, local beaches, Kona marketplaces and stores like Target, Walmart and Costco. This was such a perfect vacation stay. We would definately rent this property again if we come back to Hawaii.

Great house!

by Nicole S

super nice house, great view! unfortunately during our stay, there was construction in the neighborhood so only got some peaceful non construction noise in evenings and on the weekend days. The house is in a very good location, very convenient to most things. Lots of stuff in garage (tubes,rafts,fins,coolers, etc). A few more pillows in master bedroom with pillowcases would be nice. We found a couple extra pillows but no linens for them and there is a window a/c unit in 2 of the bedrooms but the other bedrooms didn't have and it would get pretty warm during the day, and main living area/kitchen would get very hot as well. House def needs more fans and that would've helped a lot. The pool was awesome and loved having the bar area w/fridge off the pool area for drinks etc.

Million dollar Views

We enjoyed our stay very much! The sunsets were breathtaking every day. The home was equipped with everything we needed from plenty of beach towels to kitchen supplies. The gifted Kona coffee ensured we all left with a new love of the coffee from this area. The home was clean and spacious. There were 8 of us and we never felt like we needed any more room. We had an issue with the fire alarms and the property manager was over right away to help fix the issue. The pool was a welcomed treat every night. Can't wait to come back!

We just stayed at this property with our family which consisted of 8 adults (4 couples) and 1 baby. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. It’s a huge house with plenty of space for everyone. Just a heads up that the house does not have A/C throughout, only in 2 bedrooms, but it was fine for us. You get the nice island breeze with all the windows and doors open. It even felt a tad cool at night. If you’re a light sleeper, bring earplugs because there are frogs that whistle pretty much all night. The kitchen is well stocked with pot and pans, small appliances, dishes, and utensils. There are 2 fridges which was helpful. There are tons of pool and beach stuff in the garage. The pool is great. You have an amazing view of Kailua-Kona. We would stay here again.

Beautiful and spacious home that accommodated our family of 7. So clean and spacious and we were all very comfortable! We also enjoyed the heated pool some while staying. The view of the Pacific is worth staying there alone honestly, the most gorgeous sunsets I have ever seen! The neighbors have a few huskeys, that barked to warn their owners of company from time to time but it didn’t bother us. Very happy guests here!

The house is beautiful!

by Maria Stites
The house is beautiful! I believe the Covid-19 issue may have made it to where I was unable to reach anyone. The driveway was a little tricky, steep. Be sure you have 4-wheel capability. Location and views are absolutely perfect. Worked great for our family of 8. We definitely honored the quiet hours however one of the neighbors did not and was constantly yelling at her dog. The croqui frogs we interesting and the backyard was a natural wildlife preserve, we even saw some wild pigs foraging. The boys loved the pool, the adults loved the openness of the top floor kitchen and living area including the views and outdoor seating. Definitely recommend this house. You will not be disappointed!

Family Anniversary Trip

by Stayed 7 Days in July 2018 past guest
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.

Beautiful Home on Kona Coastline

by Stayed 3 Days in June 2018 past guest
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!

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.

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!

Perfect location with lots of room for the whole family! Well equipped house with lots pool toys, snorkeling gear and beach chairs. Pool was clean and well maintained. View was outstanding. Wild pigs in forest behind were nice to watch.

Great Layout, Lots of Family Space

by Stayed 4 Days in March 2018 past guest
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.

What a gem!

by Stayed 7 Days in January 2018 past guest
This place was spacious, well decorated, and very clean. There were several bedrooms with different layouts that accommodated our group (6 adults and 2 toddlers) well. It truly felt like a home away from home and I highly recommend staying here.

Perfect House for Our Family

by Stayed 5 Days in July 2017 past guest
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!

Honu O Kai review

by Stayed 7 Days in April 2017 past guest
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.

Perfect location. Close enough to everything yet far enough away so it was quiet.

Kona with friends!

by Stayed 3 Days in November 2016 past guest
Needed a place to stay for 4 couples as we were celebrating 3 of the wives' birthdays. This location handled our large group with ease. 2 kitchens, pool, lanai with view and bbq and close to town. What more could you ask for. We even had 3 rental cars with space to park all 3!

A dream place to stay

by Stayed 6 Days in March 2016 past guest
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

Honu O Kai Vacation Rental Review

by Stayed 7 Days in February 2016 past guest
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.

Christmas in Paradise!!!

by Stayed 13 Days in January 2016 past guest
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!
