We've been staying here over the Christmas holidays for the last six or seven years however were being priced out. The cost for a month rental has reached a point where this upcoming Christmas will be our last stay. For another thousand dollars a month we can buy a house in Kona for what it cost to rent Turtlerock. Very sad because we love this location

What a lovely place. This is our second time renting this lovely house. It is so great it's really hard to want to leave it to explore be island. The most relaxing place I've ever stayed.

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.

Will be back and recommend to others!

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.

Beautiful house with sparkling pool and king bed. What could be better. Several areas to nap and lounge during the day. TV and iPod dock and working ice maker!

Again, another amazing dream stay. The view is so amazing, we never wanted to leave the house. When we did, we always hurried back !!!! This house is truly incredible !!!

Wonderful Location. Great waves due to swells and got to watch good surfers.
Made good use of pool and beach toys. Intend to rent it again if available.

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.

Absolutely tremendous. No other words are needed.

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!

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.

A special piece of paradise!To know "Turtlerock" is to know peace and contentment.We love staying there and have done so for the last twenty years.

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

This is our second visit to Turtle Rock and we cannot wait until our third next year. We were so happy to see the addition of high speed internet. The gardiner and pool person were friendly and unobtrusive. Nick is a great addition to the Knutson staff. To say the least, we love staying at this house.
Ron T. May 12, 2012
We've enjoyed Turtle Rock for many years as its a great location and we love the private pool and ocean view? The addition of hi-speed wifi was great. However, it's showing its age. The livingroom and lanai furniture are very uncomfortable. The whole house needs a good cleaning including washing the walls, baseboards, beside and behind the appliances. The biggest disappointment was the lack of cleanliness of the interior, dishes and barbeque on our recent visit. With some new furniture and better upkeep this again could be a 5 star vacation spot.

This property to ocean front. Every evening you have unobstructed views of sunset. Every day unobstructed views of whales, turtles, dolphins and surfers. The property is right on a surf break so there is a lot of activity in and out of the water. It is located right on Ali'i Drive so the traffic noise is loud. Parking is almost impossible as neighbors and surfers alike park at the property. Fairly unresponsive rental agent when you call with problems.

Cannot hope for a location better than this property. Enjoyed watching whole sea view all the time. Snorkeled in the sea nearby, which was like swimming in aquarium with colorful fish and sea turtles. Hope to stay again.

Private pool, wonderful view, sound of the waves, absolutely perfect. Total relaxation for my husband and me!
Paula K. April 16, 2013
Another wonderful stay at Turtle Rock, our third. We are already looking forward to next year. You cannot beat the view or location. We are missing the sound of those crashing waves and our nightly swims. Actually, we are missing everything about this house!

Loved everything about the house. Paradise.
Vadim M. November 25, 2012
Very private, best location, close to everything. Very good snorkeling.
Ken H. October 3, 2012
You can't beat the location, balcony and private pool, which is where we spent the majority of our time.
Catherine M. August 1, 2013
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!
Kenneth T. April 27, 2013
Great location. Surfed every morning right by the house. Did want to go out to eat because it was so beautiful to grille local Ono and shrimp on the deck
Anonymous November 6, 2012
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.
Patty A. June 28, 2011
The bathtub was not clean, there appeared to be mold inside, I cleaned it but didn't feel I needed to do so.
Overall we loved the place, the oceanview was amazing, the noice level from the street was not good but that could not be helped.
I would recommend this place and will return.
Steven S. July 23, 2011
Turtle Rock is a great place to spend a few days on the Kona coast. It is right on the water and the pool would be great if the weather had been warmer. The house is well equiped with the only down side being the small single beds in the second bedroom.
Joe T. P. July 5, 2013
This is my 4th stay at Turtle Rock - Amazing and wonderful, so great to be able to sit and enjoy the ocean.

The view is so beautiful we never wanted to leave the house !!!! My second time there, and I plan to return many more times !!!!!

My BFF and I go every summer here! Location is beyond amazing! The sound of the surf, the view, watching the surfers, the sunset, the pool. We find ourselves anxious to get back to the house because it is totally faboulous !!! We will be returning next year !!! Amazing !!!!!
Mary A. July 23, 2013
Turtle Rock rocks!! Our family describes our recent vacation to Kona as heaven on earth. The house is equipped with everything under the sun. The view is spectacular. We enjoyed watching the surfers daily and the sunsets too. Beautiful!! Two wide parking spots right outside of the front door. We will be back to stay at Turtle Rock!!
Dave B. August 3, 2011
The pictures don't do the property justice. It's a great place with a spectacular view. The sound of the surf crashing into the rocks stays with you long after you depart. The private pool is also a fun addition. You will not be disappointed if you rent this house.

+ 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.

Dave and Denise

We have stayed at Turtle Rock five times and we love the home and location. We plan to return next summer with our grand kids.
Carolyn S. January 20, 2012
too noisy and need shade screens
Denise M. November 14, 2011
Perfect for 2 couples. Lovely lanai with one of the best views in Kona. Snorkeling right in front! Could have been cleaned better. Drawers, cabinets and closets both in bedrooms and kitchen were dirty. Floors in guest house were not very clean. LOTS of termite dropping in cabinets and window sils. Such a fabulous true Hawaiian home, but needs some TLC
