Honu House Oahu Vacation
Great place to stay for our large group. The house was plenty of space for our 3 families. Perfectly placed along the beach. It was private with all the amenities of home.

4th time's a charm
We had a wonderful time on Oahu. There were new people in our group and we had fun showing them the wonders of the island. I think next time we may venture to some of the other islands. Do you have rental properties on other islands as well I'm assuming you do? Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

Perfect family vacation
Honu house was the perfect vacation rental for our extended family. Hawaii Beach Homes were always available to answer questions and provide us with all the information and supplies we needed to make our stay fun and easy. They partnered with other services to ensure we had all the beach, baby and snorkelling/surfing supplies we needed. The surf lessons were a hit and the home couldn't be more perfectly situated at Laniakea, where you can watch the surfers from the second floor before heading out to the beach.

This is a large property to turn over and we had young children in the units so we arrived a day early to sanitize the counters and stock cleaning supplies, which was needed prior to cooking in the kitchens. Keep a shoe area on the main floor to minimize tracking sand.

Honu House was the best!
We enjoyed walking out the back gate and taking 5 steps to the beach. We had our morning coffee on the beach and checked on the turtles before going to bed because we were so close to the beach. The house was perfect for our family and Haleiwa is very close to the best shaved ice ever! The management was always available if you needed them. We traveled up to pipeline and it is very close. I would go back any time. Truly enjoyed my stay.

Turtle House appropriately named.
Clean and roomy house was excellent for our extended family of eleven. We loved walking across the private road to the beach where sea turtles slept. We saw several of them. So nice that beach towels were provided as well as everything needed to prepare meals. It took quite a while for the air conditioners to dehumidifie the house which was left open to hopefully catch the trade winds. When they blew, it was pleasant; when it was still, it was hot. One of the a/c units blew only hot air and no repair was available during our visit. Hopefully they were able to get it fixed for the next folks. Fans helped a lot! The management staff was very accommodating! Buy sunscreen and use it. This property is on the north side of the island and the beach going traffic slows you down considerably. We didn’t have issues with the road noise as we had the a/c units on at night which served as white noise. There was mold around the window sill in the upstairs bathroom from the shower water. The cleaners did an excellent job on the rest of the house. We went barefoot in the house and our feet did not turn black on the bottom. Furnishings are beach theme. There are outside showers to use to rinse off the sand, or when the grand kids hog the bathroom. There is a privacy fence all around the property and parking inside the perimeter. Washer/dryer units were a blessing. We enjoyed our stay and recommend it as a great value. We toured Pearl Harbor one day - get tickets online ahead of time and start as early. We spent one afternoon and evening at the Polynesian Cultural Center and learned a lot as well as enjoying great entertainment. The Samoan stand up comic was terrific. We ate breakfast & dinner at the house, taking turns cooking. We ate out for lunch wherever we were. Haleiwa Joes was nice & Nicos Pier 38 is an absolute must do when you are in Honolulu. Another new experience for us was Marukami Udon Waikiki. Japanese udon noodles in luscious broth & tapas made a delicious lunch.

HONU HOUSE
Loved the location-close to beaches. Were so happy to see several sea turtles.
Not as busy as Honolulu so very relaxing,. Nice to have BBQ grill, highchair, nice kitchen,but D/W was almost impossible to load b/c it didn't open all the way. One washer and one oven didn't work. Cleaning staff weren't finished and were still there after our check in time. Location was great. Lots of space indoor and outdoor in yard.

Fabulous location
The house was perfect for our big gathering. We all had plenty of room and best of all the air conditioning was great. Some small issues like the front gate didn't want to close and one of the two washing machines didn't work but the house was clean and comfortable and it was in an amazing neighborhood with turtle beach right out front! Every morning we could snorkel with the turtles...wow! We would definitely stay here again.

Honu House Birthday Stay
I rented this property for a birthday getaway for 8 people. The size of the house was perfect for the group. We had the entire house to ourselves!
We had early morning people and late risers, so having the 2 floors was perfect.
We are a group of foodies and love to cook. The upper floor had two ovens and a stovetop that offered us the opportunity to cook for 9. We had a night at the grill outside which was also perfect.
The beds slept well with comfortable pillows.
There are 3 full bathrooms. There is only 1 that is an ensuite, so 7 of us had to share 2 bathrooms. It wasn't an issue. Plenty of linens.
I wish there had been beach towels provided. Only a couple of us had brought beach towels.
They had plenty of body boards.
The location was ideal and after having seen some of the other areas of the island, I am very pleased with where we ended up. Haleiwa is a wonderful town with great little shops and dining. Not as touristic as the rest of the cities. Surfer vibe and very relaxing. Great beach walking. You literally walk out the back gate, cross a private road right onto the beach. Turtles were present every day. Great Beach walks.
Biggest drawback was the traffic as it is a 2 lane road (highway) and Turtle beach is a huge tourist stop because of the turtles. Also, heavy traffic due to surfing. Also, it is not a bicycle-friendly area for the same reasons.
The house could use a bit of maintenance. The gate door was completely off the frame. There were few lights outside so it was dark getting in and out of the property. There were some leaks in the faucets. Doors could use some lubrication as it was difficult at time to open and close. Railings could use a good water pressure cleaning to rid itself of animal droppings and dirt. Some of the furniture was a bit rickety. Minimal issues.
Overall, the entire group was pleased with the venue and we all had a very pleasant stay. I would definitely stay there aga

Honu House Review
We stayed 10 days in late June 2019. Overall we had a great time.

There were some things less than optimal:
1. The keypad to open the gate from the outside did not work so we had to go in a different gate and open it from the inside.
2. There were far too few tables and chairs for eating. We had 16 people a couple of nights with only 8 usable chairs.
3. The traffic noise was pretty bad, although there is nothing to be done about that.
4. Afternoon traffic delays are very real, but not overwhelming. Just need to recognize how long it will take to get back to the house at certain times of day. 3-6 pm traffic moved at 5 mph max, often less for 3-4 miles each way from the house.

On the other hand there were pluses:
1. Proximity to beaches is excellent. Two within short walks and others a short drive away.
2. Having two kitchens was very nice although only one had a cooktop and oven.
3. The big porch was a great place for the children to play separated from the adults.

Very nice house
Excellent family vacation. Great to be steps away from excellent and popular beach. Only downside is that beach is very popular and busy viewing area for turtles. Creates a lot of traffic. Property description was accurate.

A Great Family Gathering Away from Home
We looked for a vacation home that could comfortably hold 13 people, was close to the ocean, if not oceanfront, was safe and private. We hit the jackpot with Honu House. The location was perfect, across a private road that was hardly used and away from the many tourists. It was clean and move-in ready, quiet, and had all the amenities we needed and more! There were a few minor quirks, but management took care the problems without a hitch.

Everyone agreed it was a wonderful experience and we would definitely stay there again.
