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!"

"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!"

"We loved this wonderful home for our two month visit to the Big Island! What did we love about it? In a word, everything! Spacious, well equipped, very clean, wonderful king size bed (three bedrooms, but only two of us), centrally located for our needs, quietness of the area, views of the mountains, ocean, and beautiful sunrises made this the ideal home for our visit. The owners are really nice people and very accommodating. We had great communication and even additional photos before our arrival and provided a list with descriptions of exciting things to do on the island. They even provided beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels and anything else needed for the beach.
We were here during the winter visits of Humpback whales and blessed with many spectacular viewing opportunities. There are great beaches and hiking opportunities in the immediate area and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is just a short drive away with many sights and hikes to enjoy. We really enjoyed two local places to eat and snack, Hana Hou Restaurant with a full and the Punaluu Bakery with great sandwiches, ice cream and malasadas. The central location, which is roughly halfway between Hilo and Kona, enabled us to do several day trips to other parts of the island and we even got in an overnighter in the backcountry of the national park.
For us this home was magical and the great value allowed us to do more things than if we had stayed in a resort area. We hope to be able to return in the future."

"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!"
