The condo was great. We loved being able to watch the turtles from the balcony. My son even swam with one for 20 minutes right outside the condo. It was clean and well stocked and very comfortable.
The owners were helpful. The pictures were great but didn't show the the turtles!

Owner's Response: It is easy to kick back on the lanai and watch the whales, turtles and occasional Hawaiian monk seal frolic nearby. I just want to remind visitors that pursuit and feeding of marine mammals is prohibited by Federal law.
NOAA recommends these viewing guidelines: Remain at least 100 yards from humpback whales, and at least 50 yards from other marine mammals (dolphins, other whale species, and Hawaiian monk seals). Do not swim with wild spinner dolphins. Observe turtles from a distance. Do not attempt to touch, ride, or feed turtles. Limit your time observing an animal to 1/2 hour. Marine mammals and sea turtles should not be encircled or trapped between boats or shore.
It just so happens in February 2013, I posted a turtle picture taken in December 2012 on the VRBO website. I also have a picture of a Hawaiian monk seal posted on our condo website which was also taken in December 2012.
