What can I say? Barny and Elizabeth were great hosts! The house is awesome and so relaxing. We stayed for 4 nights and they were very accommodating to our late arrival and early leave time. The location is so quiet and peaceful, much needed after the hustle and bustle of Oahu. Staying here actually felt like being on vacation, yet the major attractions like the green sand beach, black sand beach and volcanoes are all within easy driving distance! If we get the opportunity to go back to the Big Island, we would definitely stay here again!"

"Turtle Hut studio was perfect for me and my husbands recent trip to Hawaii! The studio is located within a golf course within a 5 minute walk to the beach. The outdoor patio overlooks the golf course with ocean views in the near distance. The house is extremely well appointed for meal preparation including a regular refrigerator, convection microwave and stovetop. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom very clean! The last best thing about Turtle Hut is the owner, Barbara! She is a generous person who try to make all her visitors feel welcomed ! Mahalo Barbara! We really enjoyed our stay!"

"The condo has everything a couple could need and the grounds are very pretty and serene. The pool and hot tub were great. The black sand beach is a short walk away, but to me is not good for much other than to look at with the rocky shore and cold water. I can't give five stars because the view from our particular unit was not spectacular, and an ocean front view was at the very top of my list. You can only see a sliver of the ocean between other condos. Plus the condo is in the middle of nowhere and not for anyone seeking a nightlife in my opinion. We had to drive very long distances to get to places, including even a decent grocery store. But there is some sightseeing nearby and the nearby volcano was a fun visit. Also, I know there are trade winds, but I found the lack of an AC uncomfortable, especially in the evenings on the upper level of the condo. Finally, the condo owner and maintenance staff were very hospitable and kind, making this a fine visit for us. I would recommend for an older couple."

"We were looking for a home away from home and we found it on this 7 acres! Its not all fancy like a resort, but very homey. We enjoyed the grounds a lot! As a family used to country living, this was the perfect place for us! Every convenience was provided in the home. As long as you don't mind driving a bit, this place is literally middle distance from the two sides of the island. Tropical Hilo or Sunny Kona! I love this area of the Big Island the most because it is so green and remote!"
