Big Island Turtle House is a great place for a first, second, or 30th honeymoon. The lavish master suite has its own den and outdoor lanai. The expansive view from this lanai overlooks the 12th tee, then north to the Kohala mountains. Sunsets are always visible and most of the year the surf will lull you to sleep. The master lanai boasts a round al fresco lounging bed. There is also a separate area with chairs and a table for cocktails or cards.
And then there is the beach! Big Island Turtle House provides access to the Mauna Lani's private beach club. Many consider this one of the best snorkeling beaches on the Big Island. It also offers protected swimming and a great place to build a sand castle.

About the owner:
Aloha! We are a recently retired couple who lead incredibly busy lives with our 3 dogs in often soggy Seattle.
Why the Owner Chose Fairways:
We chose the Big Island for its natural beauty, culture, and its 'laid back' style. We chose the Kohala Coast for its drier, less 'voggy' weather, and we chose the Mauna Lani for its amenities and one of the best snorkeling beaches on the Big Island. On top of that, everyone is so friendly you will feel right at home. Please come stay, relax and enjoy!
When you go on vacation to an island the basic idea is to be outside, outside, outside. Never have we stayed in a place that made it so inviting
to stay inside. The condo is wonderfully spacious, the lanais are fantastic,
and the decorations are so much sheer fun that its’ hard to say which
one(s) we like best (though I (Jack) lean toward to “Shave Ice” watercolor).
Thank you very much for making your home so inviting and available.
Oh yeah –we really did spend most of our time outside–this is a
beautifully raw island with many surreal landscapes! Unfortunately, we
missed seeing the volcanoes due to the government shutdown so we will
be back. Guess that’s not so unfortunate–the Big Island is simply gorgeous
and we have lots more to see and experience.
Thanks(Mahalo) for the great introduction.
Spent a week in this condo with 3 adults 2 kids. The unit has 2 bedrooms so it was not necessarily set up for 5 but the rental agency arranged an extra foldable bed for our little one. The unit is very clean, confortable and quiet.
Great location to go sightseeing.
Only little down side. The unit orientation doesn't allow a lot of light in downstairs. Is not a big issue since you don't go to big Island to stay inside a condo.
The kitchen is ready to go for anything you want to cook.
Overall, great experience. Recommended
This place is wonderful and fully lives up to its description. It was spotless and had just been refurbished - tasteful island decor, great beds, everything worked, with a well equipped kitchen and great outdoor BBQ. While the beach is not 'out the back door', the pool and hot tub in the complex were close by and beautifully maintained. The beach access and assocated beach club is accessed through a security gate a short drive away and is a great place for water access, snorkeling, and relaxing with all the expected services - gear rental, cocktails, and lounge chairs on the beach. The property is within walking distance to the Fairmont Orchid hotel - an upscale property for an evening out, another great beach, or a beautiful sunset. This property's location on the island seems to put it in the one place that rarely gets rain. Finally, the property management staff made booking this trip a breeze - and made sure we were comfortable once we arrived. Just couldn't ask for a nicer place or better service.
We were so pleased with our stay at this beautiful town home! The pictures really didn't do it justice. We had everything thing we needed to enjoy the island! We especially enjoyed the beach chairs, boogie boards and umbrellas during our days at the beach. The beach at the beach club is beautiful and serene. We had so much fun snorkeling there and even saw turtles on more than one occasion. The proximity of this complex is ideal for shopping and in our opinion the best beaches! Sunsets and starry nights from the upstairs balcony were also a favorite! We are so grateful for our experience on the Big Island, and hope to come back next year. We would stay in this town home again in a heartbeat! Mahalo!
We had a fantastic week at this condo. It is exactly as pictured and well equipped. Nelson and Victoria at Island and Beach Rentals are wonderful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hale Honu . The property was as expected and more and the photos don't do it justice with plans for new paint and main level flooring in the future. We cannot vouge for the pool or workout facilities as we were enjoying ourselves too much at the Beach Club. The Mauna Lani property has all you need if you are looking to stay local but would advise taking advantage of how close North Kohala is and all its adventures and offerings. It is far too lovely to pass up.
Thank you so much for sharing Hale’ Honu with us. We spent a glorious 10 days in your home and are already planning our return. The description in your listing was 100 percent accurate. We were so happy with all the amenities especially the master suite and the kitchen. Each day we had difficult decisions to make. Do we spend the day snorkeling and sunning at the beach club? Do we take the short drive to Hapuna beach for body surfing or boogie boarding? Maybe a Saturday drive to Hilo for the Farmers Market? The list goes on. Do we watch the sunset from the privacy of our lanai or do we take the short trip to the private beach club or watch the sunset from Holoholokai Beach Park? Truly a dilemma. No reason to go out after the sunset. Great kitchen and grill, on the lanai, made for fun, easy, and romantic dinners. We could go on for hours. Three words to sum it up; privacy, comfort, home.
