Guest Reviews of Honu O Kai (Turtle Of The Sea)

Kailua Kona , HI

         
Review by Tiffany W
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!

         
Review 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

         
Review 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

         
Review 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!

Perfect property with a great location

         
Review by Stayed 3 Days in May 2018 past guest
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. There is a great wrap around deck off the great room upstairs with 180 degree views of the ocean. The deck has ample seating and a BBQ. The house was clean and well equipped. The pool and deck area are large and well thought out.

Perfection in Paradise

         
Review by Stayed 10 Days in April 2018 past guest
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!

Great Layout, Lots of Family Space

         
Review 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!

         
Review 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

         
Review 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

         
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.

Kona with friends!

         
Review 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

         
Review 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

         
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!!!

         
Review 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!
