                                    Sleeping Turtle Sanctuary is a beautiful blend of traditional Hawaiian styling with contemporary Asian influence. The house is spacious, with great decor, comfortable furnishings and fantastic interior lighting. The house is worth renting for access to the expansive lanai alone. Turtles came to the beach every day, we saw whales frequently and viewed spectacular daily sunsets. A great place to relax and watch the ocean, with a nice front and back yard. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped if you wish to cook. Beach access is rocky, but the snorkeling is superb! Puako is a nice, quiet community and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property managers, Kalia and Lon, are truly nice people and are sensitive to your requirements. Sleeping Turtle Sanctuary is a great choice for a Big Island vacation.

                                    Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, families with young children.

                                    Wow. What a place! It really doesn't get any better.....It has something for everyone to relax, explore and enjoy! Lon and Kalia make you feel so welcome and truly care about your vacation experience. The location Oceanside is ideal, you could literally spend your entire trip here! The house is extremely clean. The open design makes the house feel bigger than it is. The one negative is you have to leave at the end of the stay. Memories will surely last a lifetime! Thank you Lon and Kalia! C&A

                                    We were searching for a private location on the Big Island to have our intimate wedding and we came across this sanctuary. What an amazing find!! It was exactly what we were looking for - privacy, beach front location, amazing sunset views, beautiful accommodations including a large lanai and lawn area, and space for a small wedding on the beach. We even changed our wedding date so that we could have our special day here and we are thrilled we did - it was perfect! We immediately felt welcomed by Lon and Kalia who showed us true Aloha spirit throughout the process of planning our special event. They were very accommodating, easy to work with, and made sure everything was perfect for our stay. They also provided us with great suggestions for enjoying this beautiful island. It was the perfect place and there are not enough words to describe how wonderful and amazing this sanctuary is. We are looking forward to returning to this property in the future to enjoy the peace, serenity, and magic this location offers!

                                    This is far and above the nicest place we have ever rented- your online photos made us very excited to come but it was so much more! It was a relaxing and beautiful place to come to after hiking, swimming, and snorkeling, and enjoyed the outstanding sunsets framed nicely through the trees. Kayaking off the beach area added to our pleasure as well as watching all the turtle activity. Thanks you for a very special place to celebrate a graduation in our family. Sleeping Turtle Sanctuary will provide all of us with wonderful memories for years to come - but especially for the two of our group for whom this was the first trip to Hawaii! And thanks again for being such wonderful hosts.

                                    * Written by 10 year old guest* We enjoyed this place so much! There was many turtles in the water, very fun to see. Also, me and my family went snorkeling and saw many beautiful fish, coral and even sea urchins! The beds were so comfy and the couch was a nice spot to feel the breeze. My brother really enjoyed the toys in this house, and I enjoyed going to Hapuna and bringing the boogie boards and noodles! My mom and dad enjoyed the sunset views, and my grandma and grandpa stirred up delicious foods for my family to enjoy! This was a great experience for my family and everyone else. Thank you for everything! We loved our stay and really hope to come back! This place is AWESOME!!! Go catch a wave! Aloha! Mahalo!!!!

                                    It doesn't get any better than this! We loved the house and every detail- being on the water, excellent snorkeling from the backyard, beautiful landscaping, wonderful decorating, nice layout, cool breezes coming through the house. We loved watching the turtles, too- unbelievable! The kitchen was very well stocked, too :-) Thank you for making our vacation so enjoyable and peaceful!

                                    Prior to our arrival I contacted the Property Manager on information for my fiancee's birthday surprise. He was helpful in everyway from providing a name of a Masseuse, to a Private Chef and a Hawaiian Musician. It was better than having your own personal concierge, as he was readily available throughout our entire stay to answer questions about different events around The Kohala Coast, North Kohala & Waimea. Upon opening the front door and seeing the view to the ocean we knew this would be truly a vacation of a lifetime. The description of the house and the photos do not really prepare you for how beautiful this property is. The accomodations within the house, the lanai, looking out over the ocean make this a place you do not want to leave. Our expectations were very high for this property and we definitely were not dissapointed. To experience the whales everyday, the sunrise, the sunsets, the gentle breeze made this paradise.

                                    We had a truly wonderful stay in your beautiful home! It was everything we had hoped for. What a lovely place for the whole family. We had lots of room to spread out, and we all felt that the yard and view were truly magical. It was so hard to leave! Thanks for all your help all along the way. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone.

                                    We were looking for a place to for our wedding, and instead of going with a resort -- a bit too commercial for our tastes -- my wife had this dream of renting an ocean-front house in Hawaii, inviting some of our closest friends over, and just have a wonderful night together. Well, we couldn't believe it, but we found the absolute perfect spot in Sleeping Turtle! Our wedding was on Sunday. We got there Thursday and spent the first few days preparing for the wedding. It was hard to get any work done though -- the place was so gorgeous and relaxing, we just wanted to lounge on the lanai all day long. Seriously, the photos here do not do this place justice at all. Lon, the property manager, was incredibly helpful -- he made sure we had everything we needed, was incredibly accommodating, filled with local knowledge, and was always a quick phone call away. I felt so pampered by his meticulous attention to detail! The wedding day was incredible. The weather was perfect -- apparently, Puako is even sunnier than the already-sunny Kona coast. We held our ceremony in the tiny coral beach right by the backward, with our guests standing on the sand and the wedding party standing on lava rock extending into the calm ocean -- a very memorable location! We read our vows to each other as gentle waves lapped up against the shore. Dinner was served on the main lanai -- which was big enough to fit all of us comfortably. We moved the party indoors after a beautiful sunset, and had a blast. Our guests couldn't stop commenting on how amazing the place is! We were sad to leave Sleeping Turtle -- in all our busy preparations, we didn't even have time to pause and use the hot tub! -- but hope to one day return. It is the most amazing place we've ever stayed at, and made our wedding an unforgettable event.

                                    We stayed at Sleeping Turtle Sanctuary for a week to prepare for and hold our wedding. It is so hard to express how wonderful the property is and the beauty that surrounds you every day. Our first day was spent running from room to room, going for a quick dip and ending up in the jacuzzi for a nice soak - it was like being a kid in a toy store! We made it a morning ritual to snorkel right after sunrise and very quickly found the reason for the property's name - turtles were EVERYWHERE (not to mention loads of fish and caves). The snorkeling was wonderful and hard to beat, although we do recommend going out in the morning as the winds tended to pick up in the early afternoon. The house set up was just awesome as well - beds were comfy (even the futon in the loft) and the kitchen was perfect for our group of 6 staying at the house. You can definitely tell that every amenity was considered in the decor and layout of the house - from the sliding doors to the lighting of the house and yard to the appliances in the kitchen and the openness of the floorplan. Our wedding was held in the back yard on Saturday - what a perfect location! We are so very blessed to have been able to secure this spot as I cannot imagine anything but Sleeping Turtle Sanctuary. We are already trying to find a way back to this paradise and hope to be there again SOON!!
