Property description

Casa Tortuga, Romantic Oceanfront Getaway

Explore the Big Island and use Casa Tortuga as your home base. Only steps from the ocean, this 1400 sq. ft., luxury custom home, designed and built by the architect and interior designer owners, has a special feeling that brings serenity to all of its guests. Its one-half acre, landscaped property provides privacy. Watch whales, turtles, and dolphins play in the front yard, walk the scenic coastline, enjoy old Hilo town or experience the spectacular live volcano. Swimming, surfing, hiking, snorkeling, tide pools and hot ponds are 20-25 minutes away. Be sure to save time for relaxing on the private deck to the sounds of the ocean 40 feet away. You will always remember Casa Tortuga.

Although viewing the lava entering the sea is a mere 25 minute drive, thanks to our location and prevailing tradewinds, our air and skies are clean and blue. Also, we are in the 'sunbelt' of the Puna coast, and receive much less rain than Hilo.

The area offers many opportunities for exploring, hiking, ocean activities, waterfalls & botanical gardens, historic sites and museums, art galleries, shops restaurants- many within a 30 minute drive or less. The Big Island is big, and provides limitless activities, including visiting the observatories on Mauna Kea. Or just relax - it is up you!
