Welcome to Honu He'e Nalu, The Surfing Turtle!

Experience the ultimate vacation on Kauai at our beachfront vacation home. Warm Kauai light touches you in every part of our home. Floor-to-ceiling windows capture the spectacular views, inviting the ocean and tides to set the rhythm for your stay. Wake up to unobstructed sweeping ocean and mountain views and spend your days with easy access to beautiful beaches for snorkeling and boogie boarding. Relax in our home's beautifully remodeled and well-stocked luxe boho style interior. Take a dip in one of the two fantastic on-site pools, including one with breathtaking ocean views and a second with a wading pool and waterfall perfect for kids. Challenge a new friend to a game of tennis or pickle ball on the resort courts. Wind down from a day of adventure with a glass of wine while taking in the sunset over the ocean from the huge open living area or your own private lanai. Linger awhile more and watch the beautiful starry sky emerge.

This is a dream destination for families with young children, with nearby baby beach and playground, as well as older kids who love the thrill of waves!

About the Owner

My wife and I fell in love with Kauai and the Poipu area years ago. We were married on Shipwreck Beach and over the years Poipu has been a favorite place for family vacations.
