|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Welcome! Honu Kaulana (turtle resting place) is a sanctuary for all creatures. From our private, gated, single family property, you will encounter Green Sea Turtles as they glide through a waterfall fed, ocean inlet. Share the sunrise over Poipu with the turtles and the occasional Spotted Eagle Ray, Hawaiian Monk Seal and Spinner Dolphins. Watch Humpback Whales (in season) as they cruise by your unobstructed view.
Close the gate and lounge in your private pool and spa while watching TV located in your fully stocked cabana. Be sure to include a snorkel, swim or scuba of historic Koloa Landing via your exclusive ocean access. If you need to get out of the sun, relax under your wrap-a-round covered lanai or walk across Lawai Road to Kukui'ula the newest shopping center in Poipu.
A short neighborhood stroll takes you to Baby Beach (2 blocks west) for solitude and sunset, or head eastward to Sheraton, Poipu, or Shipwreck Beaches for people watching.
Enjoy your stay! We always do.

Great house to stay in! Beautiful back yard with pool and jacuzzi. EVERYTHING you would need is right there at the house!! And the water below with the turtles is amazing. The turtles are so magestic, and they will swim by and peak their head out of the water to check you out. This place was so relaxing. Great place to call home while you're in kauai!
We had a very enjoyable week in this well equipped home, starting the day with a quick dip in the pool and then breakfast at the table overlooking the inlet which truly is "the turtles resting place". While the house is well located to visit all the south side attractions plus easy access to shopping,restaurants and beaches, it was sometimes hard to leave as we found watching the turtles to be very fascinating and the home provided everything we needed. We can only echo all the words of praise by other reviewers.
Where do I begin? We loved this home and its location. The home itself is cozy however, that is why I choose it since just my husband and I were staying. From the amenities such as the pool, cabana, hot tub and grill to the charm and location everything was perfect. I greeted each morning sitting outside either on the covered deck overlooking the pool or on the pool deck overlooking the natural waterfall to my left, the turtles in front of me down in the water or to my right into the beautiful ocean. We fell in love with this home and its charm. Dave, the island host was very gracious and available for quick questions (I should have read the book better sorry Dave). Thank you Mark and Betsy for offering such a wonderful place for people to enjoy their vacation in Kauai, it is truly heaven. Note, my husband is extremely hard to please and he loved this place and even said "can we come back next year and stay here again?"...I of course quickly responded YES!!
I'm late on this review, but when a friend asked for recommendations in Kauai for a friend of his, I quickly thought of this house. In looking up the property number to forward on to them, I realized I'd not written a review.
I wanted something special to do for my 60th birthday. So a friend and I flew to Kauai the day before it, and I woke up in paradise on my birthday. That evening I had hired a private chef to come cook a special dinner for us, and serve to us poolside. It was an awesome birthday !
The whole week was great. We wanted a private retreat where we could just chill and relax much of the time, but still have plenty of things to do sightseeing, etc. when we wanted to do so. Kauai is The Garden Island, and appropriately so. Gorgeous scenery, and the sunset boat cruise along Na Pali Coast was breathtaking. We had flown over it in a tour the day before, so we knew the area well after both tours.
Oh, the house itself. Quite nice. Just the right size for the two of us, plus separate bathrooms. The house is furnished nicely, and gated for more privacy / security. It's in a nice residential area, with shopping / restaurants close enough. The kitchen is well stocked and roomy. The pool area was awesome, with a spa. The cabana (with bathroom) becomes a focal point for drinks and snacks. The walkway down to the inlet is great, and we saw quite a few turtles. Just a perfect spot to enjoy and relax !
This was our second stay at this house and we loved it even more! It's in a perfect location, just a few minutes walk from Kauai Outfitters which runs all the tours and from the best little shopping center on the island with a great grocery, farmers market, restaurants, etc. It's also only minutes away from the beach. Having a pool is fantastic and the deck is great for grilling, watching the water, etc. The best thing, as many have said, is the turtles. They are so cool to watch and so plentiful. We've been to the island five times and this is our favorite spot by far. Great, great, great place!
The location is in a very nice quiet neighborhood. The photos of the property were accurate but don't show the overall relaxing ambience of the property layout. The house and grounds are well maintained and nicely landscaped. The house is very clean and functional. We spent most of our leisure time around the patio and the well stocked cabana which allows you to be outdoors essentially all the time. From here you can view the many sea turtles in the adjacent stream. Just remember they are endangered and require protection!
We were impressed with all the beach amenities like chairs, towels, mats, snorkel gear, umbrellas, and a cooler. All the cookware and dining utensils you need are also available.
Dave, the island host, was very helpful with questions we had and was very responsive to resolving any issues. The owner's were easy to work with and gave very helpful information with during the booking process.
I would definitely recommend this rental and plan on staying again soon!
I would recommend walking down to "baby beach" to watch the absolutely stunning sunsets!
Walking distance to sandy beaches. Beach chairs, mats, and towels provided.
