Perfect house for our family of 4. Layout was perfect and our teen daughters loved the pool. Location was key since you can access the water and a fantastic surf break right from the house! Central location but you have to drive everywhere, possible to walk to Magics beach and shopping center but road is busy. Absolutely loved Turtle Rock, we’ll be back!!

This is our third time renting the property at Turtle Rock. It is just exquisite. The property literally dangles over the ocean. It is immaculate with every amenity. The waves lull you to sleep and the table on the lanai calls for morning coffee. Unlike many other rentals, this unit is FULLY stocked with all the paper goods you will need - kitchen goods, bathroom supplies and more. The staff at Knutson Real Estate was professional and easy to work with. I could not recommend the unit and the company more!

So happy you enjoyed your stay here again. We look forward to seeing you again!

Our stay at Turtle Rock was nothing short of magical! Favorite moments-the astonishingly starry sky easily viewed from the pool deck and all the restful nights we enjoyed listening to the waves crash into the rocks as we slept, take me back! The location was perfect. We made this home our base as we set out on day trips exploring the whole island during our week long stay. Our adventures included Papakolea Green Sand Beach, Punalu’u Black Sand Beach, Manini’owali Beach, Makalewena Beach, Volcanoes National Park, Mauna Kea, Pu’ukohola Heiau Historical site, Pololu Valley, Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park, a guided hiking tour with Hawaii Forest and Trail and a night manta ray snorkel with Anelakai Adventures. Our favorite meals included crepes at Peaberry & Galatte, dinner at Merriman’s (close to Waimea), and lunch and açaí bowls at Aloha Mix Food Truck in Naalehu. We loved the beauty of the island, and the comfort and luxury of Turtle Rock made this vacation a trip of a lifetime.

This was a perfect stay. The hosts were professional, accommodating and helpful. The home itself was in the best location I’ve ever seen- I could surf my heart out and when I’d lost feeling in my arms, I could watch the surf from my lanai or even while chilling in the pool.
Splendid home, splendid stay.

This was our second stay at Turtle Rock — and we can’t wait to return a third time. From the moment you pull into the private drive and hear the sound of waves, you know you have arrived at a special place. Upon entering the main house, the view explodes before you — open seas and waves crashing on black rocks — the scenery of surfers and black sand beaches tucked around tide pools to the south. The main house is graciously appointed with modern amenities in the kitchen and primary suite. Perfect size home for small groups with ample room to stretch-out in the open floorplan. Guesthouse is ideal for a second couple or two kids. And the blue-tiled pool, outdoor shower and inviting decks and patios invite socializing or just quiet contemplation. We love this Kona hideaway. Can’t wait to return to Paradise Found!

Great views, great location. The pictures say it all. This property is right on the water. Feels very private even though it is located on a busy road. Lots of outdoor spaces for getting sun or relaxing in the shade. I could probably sit and watch the surfers in the bay every day. You can walk (100 yards) to the public beach which has spectacular snorkeling for beginners. We saw lots of different fish up close and even a few sea turtles. Close to shopping and groceries in Kona. Great spot to start day trips to Volcanos and southern beaches.

Our recent stay at Turtle Rock was a mixed experience. The property is beautiful and well depicted by the listing photos. Beaches, shopping and restaurants are all close by. It was nice to be able to watch surfers from the lanai.
There were, however, some unanticipated inconveniences associated with our stay. The house is wedged between the ocean and a busy street. The noise from both of these make sleeping difficult when the windows are left open to compensate for the lack of air conditioning. The bedroom window coverings allow quite a lot of light in so sleeping late to make up for a restless night wasn’t a real option.
The house is not appointed in a manner consistent with its price point. The caliber of the bedding and kitchen equipment were more in line with a nicely equipped student apartment than a luxury rental.
Although there were many good things about the house, we felt the drawbacks outweighed the advantages.

Manager's Response

Aloha,


Thank you so much for your review, and feedback! We do apologize for these inconveniences during your stay; however, we are quite shocked by your review as many other prior guests have absolutely adored this gorgeous, oceanfront house. For the fact that it is remodeled, conveniently located, and right off the water, we do believe it is a fantastic spot to enjoy your travels on the island. We do hope, however, you otherwise enjoyed your stay on our wonderful island of Hawaii, and wish you all the best in future endeavors.

Turtle Rock is expensive, but the house can’t be beat! The ocean is steps away, the waves and surf sounds are to die for. The lanai is perfect for coffee, drinks, watching surfers and whale watching! The kitchen is well stocked and has everything you need to make breakfast, lunch and dinner. The pool is perfect for a refreshing dip. The house is less than a hundred yards to the bay for snorkeling and surfing. It is a quick drive to the mall with a KTA and other shops/restaurants. Blake was a pleasure to deal with and promptly responded to the few questions and inquiries we had. Simply a perfect home base for a Big Island vacation. Mahalo Blake, we had a great time.

Our experience of Turtle Rock was somewhat unique because we arrived just in time for a once-in-a-decade weather event, a Kona Low. We didn't see the Sun for the first 5 days and the ocean was pretty riled up which made for great surfing displays. This, combined with the shortest days of the year, made for a rather brisk swimming pool temperature so we didn't use it much. The property and the location however can't be beat. You can literally walk to some of the best snorkeling and surfing in the area. The off-street gated parking is fantastic. The house is extremely well-equipped and extremely comfortable. It is 100% private. The thunderous roar of the sea drowned out any street noise for most of our stormy week. The last couple days were sunny and calm. We saw bright yellow fish at our feet and breaching and spouting humpback whales in the distance. If you're into audio and video, you'll be thrilled by the fantastic Sonos (S2) sound system and multiple large screen TVs. But for the cost, we could have stayed a month!

We have rented about a dozen places around the Hawaiian Islands and Turtle Rock is our favorite. This home is so special and Kona went so deep into our hearts during our stay. My husband and I had the place to ourselves for about a week - it is such a romantic place. We sat outside every morning watching the sunrise together, drinking Kona coffee and discussing our plans. The views - spectacular!! We were greeted by a rainbow on the ocean the first morning. And you can watch all the surfers, snorkelers, swimmers etc as the day goes by. The pool is awesome - very cold but perfect for those hot days! I made us mai tais to sip on the lanai, and the kitchen had just about everything we needed - even for a big Thanksgiving dinner. (We donated a better frying pan, potato masher, meat thermometer.) Sleeping was phenomenal - we kept all the doors screened and listened to the roar of the ocean at night.

My college-aged daughter and her friend joined us for 3 nights and they slept in the ohana suite. They were blown away and took gorgeous Instagram pics. They had their own space which gave us all privacy. They also walked to their first surf lesson at Kahalu’u Bay. They raved about lessons from HSLI and were easily standing up riding waves right away.

I recommend taking out the garbage daily as they ask. There were a few ants - nothing bothersome but we made sure to keep things clean. The owner really cares about this place. And there are security cameras everywhere. It was a bit unsettling at first but then made me feel very safe as occasionally people walk along the shoreline as the public can access it.
Also pulling out on to Ali’i Drive takes a bit of finesse and patience.

This really is the most special place we’ve ever stayed and we are so thankful to the owner for making it available to rent. We wouldn’t hesitate to return. My only advice to the owner is to supply things like extra dish soap, trash bags, TP

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are so happy to know you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with family at this beautiful rental. We do hope to see you again soon!

Hits:

The house layout and breathtaking views of the bay were spectacular. We enjoyed many hours on the deck watching the surfers in the distance, hearing the lapping waves and watching gorgeous sunsets.

The proximity to snorkeling (Kahalu'u Bay) and the beach (Magic Sands) was awesome -- easy walks from the house. We also appreciated that the house had a very nice pool, which proved helpful as we weren’t comfortable accessing the ocean directly given the tides.

Misses:

The house is promoted as two “master suites” but we missed the fine print that there is actually one king and one queen bedroom. This ended up not being a problem for our group of four adults, but was unexpected.

There was no night stand for one side of the bedroom in the Ohana suite. This seems like it could be easily remedied with even a small table. Despite numerous traps throughout the house, we encountered ants in the Ohana suite bathroom that were only mitigated by spraying.

While the house came equipped with starting quantities of most items, we quickly ran out of toilet paper, paper towels and garbage bags from the amount supplied, and ended up having to buy some basic pantry items (e.g. olive oil) because they were missing altogether.

Things to Consider:

The house is on a busy two-lane road, and the noise from passing traffic was quite noticeable from the Ohana suite. We were able to mitigate this by running the box fan for white noise. There are multiple outdoor security cameras (some of which point directly into the main living area). We appreciate the need for security but found this a bit off-putting.

There is no water filtration system and we learned at check-in that while potable, the tap water doesn’t taste good, so we ended up buying cases of bottled water instead.

Overall Impression:

Quite simply, this house has the “wow” fact

We loved this house and definitely plan to stay here again! The location is perfect. We enjoyed checking out the island’s beaches and taking excursions in the morning and then coming back to the house to enjoy the pool and sunset before going out for dinner. We loved hearing the waves crashing and watching the surfers. Blake from Knutson Property Management quickly responded to any questions we had and provided excellent customer service. Stay here if you’re going to Kona!

This property is absolutely amazing. It looks just like the photos. Everything is provided that you might need for the perfect stay. Very clean, amazing location. I would say that this is NOT a place for small children. The second bedroom is detached and around the pool. It is tight and there is a small stair up to the bedroom. The elderly or infirm might have a bit of trouble with that.

We just returned from The Big Island after staying at "Turtle Rock" and have to say it was outstanding. We have to thank the owners of the property for sharing their beautiful piece of paradise. The property has been newly renovated and it is pristine! The location is perfect ... fair enough away from the hustle and bustle of Kailua-Kona but close enough if you want to participate in anything. Loved Turtle Rock and loved the Big Island. The dealings with Knutson & Associates was a pleasant and painless experience. Mahalo!

Manager's Response

We are delighted to bring the exquisite Turtle Rock back on the vacation rental market after being painstakingly renovated. It is truly a magical place on the water at Kahalu'u Bay. We hope you enjoyed watching the surfers and marine life from the oceanside lanai there. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others here. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
