Heaven on Earth

Honu Point is Heaven on Earth. My three generational family including teens and tweens had the best vacation ever, beginning with Rae-Marie greeting us upon arrival at Honu Point. She and Tom were amazing hosts with exceptional attention to detail. Rae-Marie went over everything we might need to know about the neighborhood, house, appliances, pool and spa and outdoor shower. We learned about her special guests, the albatross chicks, that were born in the neighborhood in January and we were lucky enough to see several of them spreading their wings during our morning walks. We felt so lucky to see such an interesting bird and share their fascinating story. Rae-Marie's attention to detail helped us to know things that we might not otherwise know, for example traffic to Hanalea and beaches that we might want to explore. There we saw turtles to our surprise and a monk seal that was basking in the sun. The house is beautiful, immaculate and designed perfectly to experience sunrises and sunsets. The beautiful sunrise peaking in the morning windows will not let you sleep as it is nudges you to get up and start your day. The sunset highlights your activities each day as you wait to see the colors the sky has to share! The house has everything that you could possibly need, and included bikes, beach towels, beach umbrellas and chairs, snorkel equipment, coolers, etc. The kitchen offered everything needed and we were free to use items that had been left by previous vacationers. Rae-Marie was kind enough to allow for grocery delivery prior to our arrival which saved us from the supermarket shopping. The infinity edge pool meets the ocean waters edge and sunsets from there are spectacular. When Teens stop for a moment to enjoy a sunset, it must really be something, as ours did while reading a book when seated at the bench at the tip of the point and saying "wow that is really beautiful". Rarely do you find a vacation home that serves for more than a resting place after busy days and is soon forgotten. Honu Point is much more than that. It was a place where life slowed down enough for us to just breath and memories were born to be shared for years to come. I will always remember this trip but even more, this special place, Honu Point, a true labor of love of Tom and Rae-Marie's. Thank you for sharing your home with us. My family left with a final good bye, one last farewell view, a deep breath and a sigh of longing to return.

Best Vacation Ever - this home made it even better!

Can't say enough about this house and it's sweet owners. When can you ever find a house in paradise that you can witness BOTH the sunrise and the sunset from the property! The house had plenty of room for us and our four children (most of which are almost adults "teenagers"). The pool was an oasis - our little one said we have our own little garden of eden about the gorgeous landscaping. The sound of the crashing waves at night and the sound of the rain rushing down the rain chains are sounds I will never forget. Not to mention there is nothing I mean nothing that you could need that the owners do not already have at this home. From extra beach chairs to cooler bags and even beach towels! Made vacationing far from home feel like HOME! Already planning our return trip. Can't wait to come back to paradise!

The house at Honu Point was the highlight of our trip! The house is absolutely beautiful and was built with every attention to detail. Plenty of privacy for everyone in our group with ocean views from every room. We spent most of our week enjoying the pool and amazing views. We saw turtles swimming by and several albatross birds flying around the cliffs. We watched the sunrise and set out on the large covered patio. We also loved that we could hike down to Sea Lodge Beach to snorkel and relax on the beach. We would highly recommend this house for anyone that wants to experience the beauty of Kauai.

Loved the house and the host was great too. Great location, with incredible views of the rugged coast. Hot tub and pool worked great. Excellent orientation and guidance based on local knowledge. As comfortable as we could be. Only issue, too many whales -- so distracting!

Our family of four (inc 2 teens) stayed at this wonderful home for 6 nights in December 2018. We loved every minute of it! I just can't speak highly enough about this place. The location on the bluff overlooking the water is breathtaking and spectacular. Pictures simply do not do it justice. This beautiful home feels brand new and everything is state of the art, top of the line. It was also spotless and very well stocked and perfectly equipped with every amenity you would ever need. Rae-Marie was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating. Highlights: Infinity pool, Sunrises, Complete privacy, Hot tub, Sunsets, Outdoor shower, Rainbows every day, Waking to the sound of waves …. it was truly paradise. Don’t hesitate -- you will love this place. Thank you Rae-Marie and Tom!!!

Best Vacation Property Ever!

Our family of six, three couples including my husband, our son/wife and daughter/husband stayed at Honu Point for 8 nights in mid-November. We have traveled to many locations and rented several properties. Rae-Marie & Tom’s home on Honu Point stands out as exceptional in so many ways. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Rae-Marie for a complete orientation to the property, we felt completely at home. Believe us, the beauty of Honu Point, the exceptional architecture of the home and landscaping of the pool area are not adequately done justice in the photographs. But what made this property so easy to completely relax in was how CLEAN the entire house is! We enjoyed the pool area so much we rarely left the house; it was such a pleasure just being at Honu Point! Thank you again to Rae-Marie & Tom for sharing your labor of love and hospitality with us!

My husband and I booked a last minute trip over Thanksgiving and so glad we did after staying at Honu-Point. Rae-Marie was so accommodating and just wonderful. This house if over the top honestly. Every night we had plans that we ended up cancelling because we didn't want to leave the views, hot tub and full moon over the point. We found a fun kite we flew off the point as we watched a whale breach at least 10 times, used the bikes to ride to Hideaways and Queens bath to hike and walked all over the neighborhood fascinated by the Albatross birds and their beauty. Hanalei Bay with the scenic kayaking and delicious food trucks are 7 mins away and the week ended with the biggest swell in 5 years. We watched the surfers get towed out and onto the 35 foot waves right from the back patio... it was EPIC! We had sunshine most all days but when it rained on the two days, we walked in the warm rain and then enjoyed the hot tub watching the sunset. I cant say enough wonderful things about Honu Point from the location to the cleanliness and of course the memorable views. Aloha.

Unparalleled Beauty

The views from this property are spectacular. From the master suite, we could watch the sun rise and see the stars — all from the bed. Or, for the more ambitious, you can go outside and sit of the stone deck and see that too! The western aspect of the yard (and the pool) afforded views of the sunset. It’s a beautiful location, and it is exceptionally private. The house has everything you need. With the windows open a breeze drifts through the house. This would be an amazing place to rent any time of year.

Location, Attention, Perfection

This was our second stay at Honu Point. Rae-Marie greeted us and showed us around to re-acquaint. Every attention to detail is provided including great tips on sights and local adventures. But if are like us you will book a few events then ask, "why are we leaving this pool and home"? Then you will cancel to enjoy more time on the edge of the world. I mean from the backyard you see the sunrise AND sunset. Pictures do not do it justice. Rent with full confidence and be prepared for paradise and perfection..

From the beautiful tropical landscaping as you enter the home to the outstanding views from each room every detail was thought out. We had a wonderful week with our family enjoying time relaxing by the infinity edge pool, watching the sunrise and set each day and exploring the many activities on the island. This is a great property!

After recently finishing a 9 night stay with my wife, eighteen year old daughter, fourteen year old son, and two of our family’s closest friends, my best advice for everyone would be to not hesitate or worry about booking Tom and Rae-Marie’s Honu Point home for your trip to Kauai. The home and amenities offered are spectacular, the views are mesmerizing, and the hosts genuinely want to exceed your expectations! Isn’t that what we all are looking for when taking what may possibly be a once in a lifetime trip?!! If we are blessed to someday return to Kauai, we would look no further than Honu Point – thanks Tom and Rae-Marie for going above and beyond to ensure that our stay was Perfection!!

On Top Of The World

Our family loved staying at this beautiful home, set on the amazing Honu Point. Morning coffee with the sunrise on the patio, sips of wine watching the sun set from the pool deck = perfect days. Thank you for making the home so well stocked, clean and lovely. We would love to return and will tell our friends to plan a trip to this special spot.

My wife and I have been to Kauai once before about 6 years ago and fell in love with the island. We decided to come back to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and wanted to stay somewhere special this time. The pictures of the property are amazing but when we drove up, stepped out of the car and saw it for the first time, all we kept saying was "wow." It truly is an unbelievable spot. Rae-Marie greeted us and was so welcoming and kind. She gave us a quick tour of the house, pointed out some helpful things to know and had a thorough binder of information in case we had any questions. It was neat to look at the book of pictures showing the 2 year construction of the house, making you realize that it truly is a labor of love. The neighborhood is lovely and very quiet most of the day and night, making it very easy to relax and refresh. The 180 degree view of the ocean is incredible! Our favorite part of the house is the infinity pool where you can just look out at the ocean and be at peace. We will certainly look forward to returning again. Thank you Rae-Marie and Tom!

Perfect Place to Enjoy the North Shore of Kauai

We found the house and location better than the pictures online, a testament to the personal style and thoughtful planning and outfitting of a home from kitchen to bedroom to bath to living room–the garage even had 4 bicycles. The outstanding hospitality of the owners Rae-Marie and Tom really made the arrival and ongoing experience particularly special. What accommodating, kind people! Rae-Marie made us feel immediately at home when we arrived: the tour of home and various appliances made a difference to everyone’s comfort level and the added touches of flowers in every room, fruit and chocolates and wine, and use of pantry items made our late arrival an easier, softer landing. We’d vacationed in the Princeville/Hanalei area several times before, but Rae-Marie offered so much wonderful detail of the neighborhood, we felt even more at home. She put me in touch with a delightful woman to do childcare one night as well. Owners who treat you like company or friends and respect your time and vacation experience are rarer finds than a beautiful house. But beautiful and comfortable house it is! The house’s 180-degree spectacular views and spaciousness and comfortable furnishings were particularly welcome with wetter weather than usual this April. We could still enjoy the beauty of the mountains and ocean and landscaping without ever leaving the house. The hot tub and pool made everyone’s outdoor needs easier on erratic sun and showers and windier days. Unfortunately due to too wet and muddy hillside, we’ll have to save exploring the beautiful semi-private beach below the house next time. Honu Point is the perfect place to enjoy a family vacation or a special occasion with friends! Mahalo and we’ll be back! We’ve already shared pictures and recommendations with many friends and family!

The Ideal Vacation Home

I’ve rented homes for one or two weeks at a time in Italy, Mexico, Barbados, Antigua, and St. Lucia, and none can compare with this one. The views and facilities are exactly as represented on the owners’ VRBO site. What’s not as apparent is the extraordinary care the owners take to make certain one’s stay is as pleasant as possible. Directions on how to use the state-of-the-art appliances and entertainment system; provision of all the sports and exercise gear one could want; accommodating check-in and checkout procedures; no intrusions but ready access to owners if one needs it — in every respect, they’re the ideal landlords/hosts. Oh - one more thing: the view is truly spectacular.

Spectacular Views, Lovely House, and Thoughtful Hosts

Five stars all around! The house sits on a point with 180 degree water views. The pictures don’t really do justice to the location. Even though the weather didn’t cooperate much while there, the views were always stunning. The house itself was spotlessly clean, well appointed and laid out to take maximum advantage of the views. It was very clear too the owners put a lot of thought and effort into making Honu Point a lovely house to rent. As hosts, Rae-Marie and Tom go above and beyond. For anyone wanting an exceptional rental experience in the Princeville area, I highly recommend Honu Point.

Honu Point is absolutely “Spectacular”! The view from every room is incredible! We were greeted by the owner Rae-Marie and introduced to this home. No detail was left out! Fresh fruit and a greet package with local candies and coffee was there for us! The home was spotless and the kitchen stocked with everything a cook would need! There were six of us. The first night we had a fantastic surf and turf meal on the lanai. What a view! The ocean surrounded us on three sides and the mountains on the other! Breathtaking! The stars that night surrounded us! The pool area with hot tub are set in beautiful landscaping! Whales were jumping everywhere! We were fortunate to see the local Albatross and their babies! What a sight to see! One actually took off to fly from the side walk outside the master suite. Unbelievable! My husband and I have been coming to Kauai for over 27 years and have stayed in many homes. Honu Point is our favorite! We will be back and we will stay here! Mahalo Rae-Marie and Tom for sharing your home and your hospitality! See you soon!

One Of The Most Beautiful Spots On Kauai

We shared this amazing house with family and created wonderful and lasting memories. Most of the time, we didn’t even want to leave the Honu Point because of the views from the promontory (whales!), the luxury of the pool and spa, and the graciousness and calming effect of the house itself. Thank you, Rae-Marie and Tom, for your wonderful hospitality. (And the albatross nests were a lovely bonus!) Hope to be back.

About the Host

Rae-Marie and Tom May
Kauai is one of the most beautiful places on earth. We started to vacation here in the eighties and fell in love with this lot. In 1987 we purchased it. Then in 1991 we built our current home and split our time between San Diego and Kauai for six years. In 2000 we moved to Kauai full time. We designed and built this dream home in 2015 but we're not quite ready to give up our 23 acres across the highway. So it's your chance to enjoy our property before we make the decision to move to it from our current island home five minutes away. Being so close we would be happy to meet with you and offer suggestions to enhance your experience on the Garden Island.
