TURTLE HUT II AT PUNALU'U BLACK SAND BEACH! MORE FIVE STAR RATINGS! REVIEWS!!

Naalehu Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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, bar none! Colony One at Sea Mountain 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,mthe former sugar cane plantation town, Naalehu, site of our famous Punalu'u sweet breads bakery, and Ocean View, boasting the llargest 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!

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!

About Barbara Rushton

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!

Barbara Rushton purchased this condo in 2006

Why Barbara Rushton chose Naalehu

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 the last oasis and place of 'Old 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, yet is located perfectly for visiting attractions in either Kona, Hilo or Volcano.

What makes this condo unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed EVERYTHING, and especially the Farmers Market & getting introduced to strawberry papayas, amazing! will miss them at home. Loved Hawaiian Tropical Gardens & smoothies at What's Shakin' & Akaka Falls. We hiked Volcanoes Natl Park several days...to top it all off, turtles all over your beach...amazing.

We will pass along this great find to anyone who asks about a place to stay on the Big Island!

Beautiful view, great breeze...

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Turtle Hut II was fantastic. We were greeted by the housekeeper due to us arriving earlier than expected (time changed messed us up). She was very pleasant and proceeded to tell us about all of the opportunities in the area. She did not shoo us away, as she easily could have as we were hours early! The condo met all of our needs. My daughters loved the geckos and the turtles, OH My, so many turtles! My husband saw an octopus when he was snorkeling off the black sand beach. We managed the drive to many places and beaches. The view from the pool is exactly as the picture shows only much, MUCH more spectacular. I loved sitting out by the pool, reading and looking up to see the ocean view. Wonderful place to see and visit. Barbara has wonderful suggestions as to where to by groceries and to eat! Mahalo for a wonderful stay, LeaAnn~Mt. Horeb, WI.

Owner's Response: Aloha, LeaAnn and Ohana, and WOW! it sounds like your stay included some really rare moments! Your hubby saw an octopus? while snorkelling at our beach?!? Now, that's a first! to my knowledge! You'll definitely have to come back during WHALE season, when you can watch literally dozens of whales in the bay, pool - front!, as they breach and blow and play with their babies! OR, make it back during turtle hatching season! when thousands of turtle hatchlings break open their egg shells and try to waddle their way into the ocean for the first time......BOTH very magical experiences!
Our housekeeper Lizzy fell in love with your girls, too! and always loves to meet and greet the guests she is preparing the condo for, and of course all of us lucky enough to live in paradise also love to share our lists of favorite places.
We'd love to have you all back, whenever the spirit moves you, LeaAnn! Mucho mahalos for taking the time to write such a detailed and beautiful review of your stay! We're very grateful!
Always with aloha,
Barb, Dina & Lizzy

A reall gem

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived, we were comfortable, happy, and impressed with this property. The grounds and condo were immaculate and beautiful. During our stay in Hawaii (3 islands total), this was our favorite condo. It is secluded, which we loved. If you are looking for a place to walk to restaurants or nightlife, this is not for you. That being said, there are wonderful places to eat within 30 minutes. The owner left GREAT recommendations. We were so happy here and found it hard to leave this great spot. I would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Aloha again, Denise and ohana, and oh boy.....your review has me actually blushing with pride! It's always wonderful to hear great things back from our guests, but rarely have any said our Turtle Hut topped out anything else in three islands....kazaaaaam!
Please come back soon, and for a much longer stay; I suspect your few days didn't allow enough time to see our incredible GREEN sands beach? or the incredible Kula Kai Caverns? or my favorite beach for swimming with pods of dolphins?
We'd love to have you back, and until then, mega-mahalos for taking the time to write such a beautiful and thoughtful review of our piece of paradise!

CONVENIENT LOCATION and VERY CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in four different places during our week on the big island (air BNB, a privately owned bed and breakfast and two VRBO condos). Turtle Hut II was by far our favorite. I'm a clean freak and i was appreciative that the condo was immaculate. My niece had stayed at three other condos in the complex and said this was the nicest she had seen. We were able to walk seven minutes down the road to Punalu'u (the black sand beach) to snorkel and see the turtles daily. The drive is about two minutes. Volcanoes National Park, Volcano Winery, Kau Coffee Mill, the Green Sand Beach and South Point were all convenient day trips. barbara and Dina were both helpful with any questions we had and the condo kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and condiments. The condo also had beach supplies (chairs, toys, towels, snorkel gear) in the closet.

We also loved all the Honu (turtle) decor and watching the birds and geckos from the balcony. Thank you Barbara. We'll definitely stay at Turtle Hut II on our next visit to the big island.

Barbara and John

Excellent Accommodations

  • 5 of 5
We chose this location as it would provide a vantage point to explore different areas on Hawaii. It proved to be a great location. We visited the Volcanoes National Park twice during the day and did various short hikes, one through the crater and another to see the petroglyphs. It also allowed us to return at night to see the glow of the volcano.

The owner Barb maintained great communication with us during our nine day stay and the condo provided us with all of the necessities for a great holiday. The condo is well equipped, clean and provided all of the beach accessories chairs etc needed!

It's proximity to Punalu'u Black Sand Beach makes spending time at the beach a no brainer. The beach provides both sun and shade as well as restroom facilities and an added bonus of visiting with the turtles!

We did however leave one day early as Hurricane Isele was bearing down on the island and evacuations were being carried out, so chose to move back to Kona to be near the airport.

Highly recommend Turtle Huts II!

Turtle Hut II - Great Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Tutle Hut II was great. We loved the details in the home and it was very clean and well appointed. We chose to stay here for three nights in our two week vacation in order to be able to explore Volcano National Park, the Black Sand and Green Sand Beach. We did all three in the four days that we were there!! We also did the cliff dive at the southern end of the island!! It was fantastic! We loved the black sand beach and saw sleepy turtles all of the days we were there. Some of our party also snorkeled at the black sand beach and swam with turtles! An amazing experience. We also patronized the local restaurants and bakery (excellent Malasados!!!) and lover our experience here! The only thing we were unaware of was that this unit is not air conditioned; however, the continuous breezes did not presenet a challenge for us.....however, those who may have allergies or require cooler climates, this may be a factor. Can't wait to return to the Big Island!!

Owner's Response: Aloha, dear Toni and ohana, and mahalos galore for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of your stay! You surely maximized your limited time! with us, and I'm thrilled to hear that you were able to see the "top magical three" of our natural wonders here! We'll be delighted to have you all back for a much longer stay, when you'll have time to enjoy Kula Kai Caverns in nearby Ocean View, consistently rated a "must do!" by our guests; the drive along the old Sugar Cane Road to the Ka'u coffee fields in "Clouds' Rest" and the Ka'u Coffee Museum/Wood Valley's Shangri-La environment!; Hookena Beach, where you just might join a pod of spinner dolphins in for their morning feeding!; or the awesome natural tidepools in Kapoho......too many possibilities to list, here!
Thank you again! for choosing both of our Turtle Huts for your ohana's holoholo in paradise, and for composing such a beautiful review for others to read!

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!
