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 as 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 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 including high-speed internet, Wi-Fi and premium TV & movie packages. 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 of these options whenever you can bear to leave our beautiful black sand beach and snorkeling 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.

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.

About DeAubrey

We lived in Hawaii when my husband was in the Service. We always dreamed of retiring on the Islands but never thought it would be possible, but dreams do come true! We haven't retired yet but this will be our home someday and until then we want to share it with you.

DeAubrey purchased this condo in 2017

What makes this condo unique

We found this complex when visiting the Big Island in 2015. We stayed in a condo like this one and fell in love with the area. We were drawn to this part of the island, a little more laid back. The beach is in walking distance, the pool and hot tub are great and the location was just perfect for us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful condo! So comfortable. We were lucky enough to see Kilauea Volcano at dusk emptying in glorious colors., it hadn't done that for a month. Black sand beach is something special -- especially the turtles! Had a wonderful time.

Clean. Quiet. Relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Turtle Hut II is by far the nicest VRBO rental we have experienced. I opened the door and said "Wow". Not very big but definitely not too small for the four of us and it had everything we needed for our too-short 3 day stay. Absolutely loved it. Thanks for the fresh cut flowers. A wonderful touch.

Impressed with this property. Very clean. Black Sand Beach is beyond amazing. Make sure you bring everything with you as there is no amenities close by. Surprised that no units have AC, since it is Hawaii. Overall it was wonderful! We will return to this location!!!!

another wonderful visit!

  • 5 of 5

As always, Turtle Hut II was just perfect for us. All the comforts of home from the full sized kitchen to the wonderful queen sized bed! All the living spaces have ceiling fans that are so necessary during the humid weather. This was our third stay in this condo, and the first time under the new owner, but nothing has changed and it was just as great as ever. It feels just like our second home.

Quiet clean facility

  • 4 of 5

This is a great condo for families who want to get away from the crazy resort areas. The facility can be hard to find (don't trust your maps app), especially in the dark, but once there it's a nice little place. My only criticism is the master bed. It seriously needs a new mattress! Nice kitchen, bathroom, shower, and layout. We enjoyed our stay!

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 of Kona, the natural wonders of the Ka'u district along 90 miles of unspoiled coastline on 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!

We have recently partnered with KapohoKine Adventure Tours, the island's #1 tour group, which now offers a 15% discount for our guests on all of their offerings!
