"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."

"This was a great property. My wife and I stayed here 4 days with our boys 9 and 12. The house had everything we needed, was clean and in good shape. In particular, the kitchen was incredibly well stocked with every little small appliance you could want. The kids enjoyed the pool and we made use of the outdoor grill. Liz, the property manager, was nice, local and available for questions. We left an item there that she was nice enough to box up and ship back to us. The payment requirement through wire transfer was unique, but worked out without issue."

"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!"

"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."
