About The Owner

My Husband and I have been together over forty yrs.. I am from St Thomas V.I. ... And he is from California.. We were in the Horticultural business many yrs and love Tropical flora, we enjoy traveling, photography, surfing, and meeting interesting people. We have a good knowledge of the Puna area and would enjoy sharing many of the beautiful places that the big island has to offer..


Liz & Steve

Why The Owner chose Puna District

We love the lushness of the Puna area, And the unique Island life style.. Where you can drive through enchanted Mango forests or swim in lava warmed ponds, see the beauty of waterfalls or the magnificence of an active Volcano all in one day...

What makes this house unique

Our property is gated and private... the fruit trees and palms are over thirty years old, and you can pick avocado or mango almost all year long, also there are bananas, passionfruit and many other edible delights and blooming plants to wander through in our Gardens while staying at our Ohana....

The property was beautiful. Steve was very informative and always available. They have made their property into a garden paradise. We had everything we needed here. We would stay here again if we return to a Hawaii. It felt like home at The Turtle House!

Everything you need! Perfect location for a quiet, tropical setting.

  • 5 of 5

Steve was an awesome host. He sat with us and showed us the best spots to see while there in the book "Big Island revealed" which was a great plus for us. He is very easy going and a great person to talk with.

The house is about 2.5 miles off the main road toward the ocean. Very clean and perfect space for us. The lush tropical plants and clean air was very refreshing. The coqui frogs sing you to bed at night. Ceiling fans in every room, and the little things you forgot at home, are there for your needs.

We like to cook at home, and this house everything you need to do so. They provide the little things such as condiments and spices which was a great plus for us as well. Laundry facilities in the apartment with laundry soap, no need to over pack.

We will be back, and surely stay here again. It was a very pleasant experience, and look forward to our next stay.

Many mahalo's to Steve and Elizabeth for your hospitality. The turtle house is A+

Great launching pad for an adventure

Rental is great. It has everything you need. We honestly only slept there. Didn't hang out at all. We were out seeing things all day. It's a great rental. Owners are very friendly and had some great tips for our trip. Thanks.

A nice quiet place to hang your hat at the end of the day.

A very quiet spot at the end of a avenue. Close location to the SE tourist spots and close to Hilo as well. Very easy to come and go without feeling like we were bothering others. It had everything we needed. Thank you Steve and Liz.
