Property description

TURTLE HUT II: a spacious Polynesian-style bungalow for your dream vacation in Hawaii! Our repeat guests agree that we offer the very best LOCATION and CLIMATE and AFFORDABILITY, as reflected in our 5 Star ratings and guest reviews. We would love to reserve YOUR stay, and have
another opportunity to show you why we've earned nearly twice as many 5 Star ratings than any other condo in our resort.

Our location on the southeastern unspoiled coastline of Hawaii's Big Isle, is virtually mid-way between the attractions of both Kona and Hilo.......and with many unique places to explore along the way! We're also a scant half-hour drive to the Volcanoes National Park and Madame Pele's spectacular eruption shows. Nestled on a bluff overlooking Ninole Bay in the middle of 90 miles of pristine, undeveloped coastline, this small Polynesian style condo resort and golf course blend seamlessly into their natural tropical setting.

We are also blessed by the prevailing tradewinds, a factor which keeps our air quality fresh and clean, unlike the Kona coast, and our temperatures are also cooler both day and night! You will love to lounge on the pool deck at night and watch the night sky for falling stars, as there is no cleaner air on planet earth.
Of course, we also have the very best amenities for our guests, right here in the resort! Many of our guests choose to spend mornings with breakfast on the lanai, feeding our tame cardinals a taste of papaya or toast, then off to the pool and spa or golf or tennis until noon; touring in the afternoon, and finishing the day with a great fish BBQ on the pool deck with new friends! Some spa time, anyone?

There is so much to see and explore nearby: within a 30 minute drive, our magnificent GREEN Sands Beach is not to be missed; Kula kai Caverns in Ocean View has several guided tours tailored to your physical abilities and interests; South Point's fishing ladders, natural history and ocean blow holes; Wood Valley's Shangri-La environment offers a BuddhistTemple; the recently opened Ka'u Coffee Mill & Museum, where you may sample international award-winning local coffee brands and learn all about coffee farming, from picking 'cherry' to final roasting; shopping the quaint nearby villages of Volcano Village, Pahala, a former sugar cane plantation town, Naalehu, site of our famous Punalu'u sweet breads bakery, and Ocean View, boasting the largest at subdivision in the USA, atop the slopes of Mauna Loa Volcano.....all of these options whenever you can bear to leave our beautiful black sand beach and snorkelling with the turtles!

Finally, affordability matters to everyone these days. And with airfares climbing to ridiculous levels, we've lowered our rates as low as we possibly can to attract and keep a clientele of discerning guests for all of our properties. A full house at low rates is certainly better than one half full, at our former much higher ragtes!

Be sure to read the 'Travelers Reviews' Tab above to see the wonderful things virtually ALL of our guests have said about their stays with us! They consistently rave about the location, and amenities, and having all the comforts of home, in paradise! We are very proud of our 100% positive record, and work very hard to achieve and maintain that level of service to our pampered guests.

The Hut's 'great room' runs the entire width of the unit, and has soaring vaulted wooden beamed ceilings, with ceiling fans in both the full sized living room and dining rooms. The full kitchen has brand new stainless steel range and over-the-range micro-hood, full size refrigerator, dishwasher, and even a washer and dryer. Of course, we also stock all the small kitchen appliances you would hope for: coffee maker and grinder; blender; rice cooker; toaster, and so on.

We always strive to spoil our guests as we would wish to be, so we also stock top quality beach chairs, beach umbrella, mats and coolers; high thread count sheets and custom towels; and high end and comfortable furnishings. We are always happy to furnish our guests with insider recommendations on best & worse restaurants, activities & attractions and our own 'do not miss' list! It's all part of the 'aloha spirit' which we strive to convey and which showers our business with a very high repeat and referral rate!

Please note that our Hut II is a "true" one bedroom condo, not a studio unit masquerading to be one! It's virtually twice the size as a studio unit, and has two full levels: level one includes the foyer and bedroom, and double bath; level two is the "great room" with the living room,dining room, full kitchen, and full-length lanai, for even more relaxing island lifestyle! We have two beautiful teak dining tables with seating for four on the lanai.

Keywords: BEST Beach & Golf & Location & Climate & Unspoiled, Exotic Hawaii at affordable rates! See our former Guest Reviews, and see why we have earned more than double the number of FIVE STAR ratings than any other condos in our resort!

Car: Recommended

Ideally located mid-way between the towns of Kona and Hilo, and only 30 minutes to the spectacular Volcanoes National Park, our resort is truly the best spot on the island! Away from the crowds, traffic and vog, the natural wonders of the Ka'u district and 90 miles of unspoiled coastline along the southeastern shore, Colony One beckons travelers from all over the planet who seek to find the REAL Hawaii. You won't want to miss the Na'alehu, Volcano Village, and Ocean View Farmers' Markets every Wed. & Sat. morning for fresh fruits, veggies & local coffee and an amazing array of art and crafts from our local craftsmen. Also, Kula Kai Caverns in nearby Ocean View; Green Sands Beach, 20 minutes drive; Zip-Line in Mountainview; Buddhist Temple and new Ka'u Coffee Museum & Mill in Wood Valley; the ancient fishing ladders and petroglyph fields, and sacred heiau in South Point; unlimited hiking opportunities including portions of the historic Ala Kahakai Trail fronting our resort; and even Lomilomi Massage for anyone? Just call our highly recommended local massage therapist(s) and they'll set up the massage table right on the lanai for you! This is also GOLFERS paradise, with both Sea Mountain Golf Course (adjacent to our resort!), and nearby Volcanoes Country Club G.C., where 18 Holes & your cart cost only $25.00.......and we provide clubs with bag inside the master bedroom closet!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: At long last, and as many of our guests have requested, we're now thrilled to offer our second property, Turtle Hut II. This one is a large, full one bedroom model, in the style of a Polynesian bungalow with high vaulted, wood-beamed ceilings in the 'Great Room'. Thanks to the success and loyalty of our clientele, we were able to purchase this lovely unit for families desiring lots of space and a full kitchen with such amenities as dishwasher and washer/dryer, GREAT for long stays!

Why the Owner Chose Pāhala, HI, USA:
Barb purchased our first condo at Colony I at Sea Mountain way back in 2003. If you've never seen this piece of paradise, you're missing out on what most visitors agree is truly an idyllic oasis, not found anywhere else in Hawaii! Nestled on a bluff overlooking Ninole Bay along 90 miles of pristine, undeveloped coastline, this small Polynesian-style complex blends perfectly into its natural, tropical landscaping. It offers all you'd expect of a modern resort right on the premises to keep you contented all day long, and is also located perfectly for visiting attractions in either Kona, Hilo or Volcano.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our favorite day whenever we have the chance to stay here ALWAYS begins with coffee and bits of fruit and toast to feed our local cardinal and finch families! Many come to our screened door if we're even a tad late to call us out! and we've named several of our favorites through the years. We also LOVE the huge volcano-style spa at night, gazing up at the unbelievably clear night skies to spot the constellations and catch a falling star or more! After a long day at the beach or golf or hiking, there's no more relaxing and beautiful place on earth!
