    Chris B recommends this vacation rental

    We have visited Kailua-Kona many times over the past thirty-four years, and we have stayed at several oceanfront condos on Ali'i Drive. Turtle Rock was our first home and by far the best experience we have enjoyed. Having a private pool steps away was awesome! The snorkeling just off the back of the house is some of the best on the island. Paddle boarding and surfing are just steps away. The property is well furnished and well equipped. Outside of fresh Ono, mahi mahi, and Mai Tais, we needed nothing. Staying three weeks gave us the feel of almost being a local. It was the most relaxing trip we have ever taken. The owners of Turtle Rock have done a wonderful job of creating an oasis within paradise. Mahalo for a great stay!

    a guest from Grove City, Ohio recommends this vacation rental

    Beautiful setting! We loved the location and watching all the surfers.
    The house had all that we needed and the pool was an added bonus.
    We enjoyed the big Island and all it offered. If you go swimming with the manta rays is a must! Turtle Rock is a very special place!
    We would love to return but the price seems to continue to rise.

    a guest from Henley-On-Thames, Oxfordshire recommends this vacation rental

    My wife and I stayed at Turtle Rock for a week in April off the back of a business trip at the Fairmont. We loved the house, being able to wake up in the morning and have a coffee sat on the lanai watching the dawn surfers was wonderful. Property was well clean and well equipped, and nicely positioned near to Kona but not so near it felt crowded. The nearby shopping center at Keahou (closer than Kona) had everything we needed from Longs or KTA and consequently all of our plans to try different restaurants every evening fell apart as frankly, watching the sun set with a cold cocktail, with the ipod playing your favourite tunes whilst you prepare some fresh fish to cook on the bar-b-que was as good as it gets. What more could you ask for? We were very sad to leave

    We have just returned from our fourth year at Turtle Rock. This is our favorite vacation spot in the world. The new paint throughout really freshened the place up. As always, we had a incredible time. I can't say enough good things about the view and location. I am already counting the days until our return next year.

    As a long time client we had a little confusion but things got cleared up quickly thanks to Charity. And of course Sharon. They made things right in a hurry.
    I highly recommend this property for a couple or two couples as it has an o Hana. It's priced right and if you love sunsets and hanging on the lanai this is the place for you.
    It is a unique property that I plan on renting annually unless they price me out of the market.

    Catherine M from Las Vegas, Nevada recommends this vacation rental

    Turtle Rock is in the best location possible! Close to town (4.5 miles), and a block away from the best snorkeling in Kona. You can even snorkel from the rocks behind the house. There is no a/c, but plenty of fans to keep the house cool. There were a few bugs in the house, and some areas could be sealed better, but this is an older house. There is a market a mile up the road, so we would suggest getting some groceries and making some meals at home to save money. All the amenities are there at the house (dishes, washer/dryer, i-pod dock, iron etc.), so that was a huge plus. Overall, our stay will always be remembered as a great one!

    Nice property, unfortunate to have construction across the street and a tsunami. The surf can get a little noisy when having conversations and the house gets covered in salt without no air conditioning. The view is amazing and we enjoyed watching the surfers. It's a small drive to town.

    Our rental had a private pool, was well equipped and clean, and was a great place close enough to town, but far enough away from the crowds.

    No complaints whatsoever about the unit or the management company. They were great in every way.

    We rented the unit about a year ago, just before the tsunami hit the area. When I emailed to ask about any damage, they quickly replied and assured is that they had checked out all of their properties and none had received any damage.
    This rental was RIGHT on the water, so that was a big relief.

    + Love that the new owners have added wifi We stay for a month and love this property.
    + perfect for small family gatherings. We have friends in kona and host a few dinner parties which are always we some because of the location.
    - low light in bedrooms so we bought a lamp for dresser
    - couldn't use wifi for espn online because I needed Warner acct number. So I couldn't watch soccer matches. l watched whales instead. Lol
    - no tv in bedrooms
    - downgraded BBQ grill.
    The last negative was really only issue that was of significance. All others were very minor.
    Overall we love this property and nick is a great addition to your staff. Always available and friendly. And we only needed his help once this trip.
    The maintenance crew (pool and gardening) were very curtious and considerate of our privacy.

    we hope this property remains available for rentals.
