WHY STAY AT HONU COVE? (vs. somewhere else on the North Shore)
One simple answer... owner attention to detail. As the owners of Honu Cove, this is our personal vacation home that we use several times per year. Every time we visit we fix anything that's broken and replace things that show signs of wear. This means that every time you visit it will seem like a brand new condo. Almost all other vacation rentals are just that.... rentals. They get run down and things don't get replaced as frequently as they should. Not the case at Honu Cove. A gorgeous "like new" condo every time you visit. That's our promise.
The views and beach access alone would be enough for you to fall in love with this incredible home, but there's so much more. This 1 bedroom + loft unit with 2 full bathrooms has just undergone a massive top-to-bottom renovation. The unit sleeps 4 comfortably and is ideal for couples or small families. The master bedroom has a new, 4-poster, king-sized bed with beautiful matching dresser and nightstands. The 2nd bedroom in the loft has a queen-sized bed with matching furniture. Each bedroom has a full adjoining bathroom with shower that has been completely remodeled with new granite-top vanities and new tile showers and floors. There's a gorgeous gourmet kitchen with all new cabinetry, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The dining area, with its new glass-top dining set, is surrounded by windows on 3 sides, each with a gorgeous view. Of course, if you'd prefer to dine al fresco, there is a patio table and chairs on the lanai that allows for unrestricted views of the ocean (and, quite possibly, turtles or whales) while you dine. Back inside, there's gorgeous cherry hardwood flooring throughout the unit. The unit also offers cable TV, complementary wireless Internet and telephone with complementary free long distance to the mainland.
Of course, you come to Kaua'i to get in the ocean and this condo complex offers something almost no other complex in Princeville offers... a PAVED path to the beach (most others have dirt paths that get very slippery). The paved path goes directly from the complex to the private and nearly-deserted Pali Ke Kua beach which is great for snorkeling or just relaxing (we almost always see Green Sea Turtles while snorkeling there!).
You may have heard about the amazing Bali Hai sunset as viewed from the exclusive St. Regis Resort 1/2 mile down the road, but you can enjoy the same spectacular sunset just a few steps from your condo. As the sun begins to set, grab your beach chairs (provided) and walk 50 feet (seriously) out to a beautiful grassy point where you will view one of the most magnificent sunsets in the world. BTW, some postings advertise Bali Hai views directly from the condo but keep in mind that means a west facing view and hot afternoon sun in your unit every day. One of the magical qualities of this particular condo is that it has an eastern exposure for cool afternoons on your lanai, but it also has Bali Hai views just 50 feet away. It's the best of both worlds.
