Hale Honu Maku'e (The Brown Turtle House) is a spacious 5 bedroom 3.5 bath hillside retreat overlooking Kailua Kona. This is a two level home, rented in its entirety. Each level offers breathtaking panoramic views from beautiful lanais that wrap around three sides of the house.
Level one (upper) offers two bedrooms. One master bedroom with a king sized bed, private access to a full bathroom, and a 40" flat screen TV. A second bedroom has a queen sized bed with its own lanai access. The main level has 1.5 bathrooms, stackable washer/dryer, living room, formal and casual dining room, a full kitchen, and a private lanai with BBQ. The living room on the main floor features a 26' vaulted ceiling, a leather seating area, and a 65" Samsung LED TV with cable.
Level two (lower) offers three bedrooms. One master bedroom with a king sized bed with direct lanai access, attached to a full bathroom, and a 40" flat-screen TV. A second bedroom has a queen sized bed. A third bedroom features two twin size beds with direct lanai access. The second level has 2 full bathrooms, a living room with sectional couch that doubles as a fold out full sized bed and contains a flat-screen TV with DVD player, dining area, full kitchen and private lanai with BBQ.
The home is located high on the hillside above the Kailua-Kona Airport at 1800 foot elevation level. Because of the high elevation, we enjoy beautiful breezy days and very cool evenings so no air-conditioning is required.
Our home includes FREE WiFi and Cable TV. Each lanai area includes additional seating for admiring the amazing view as well as a barbecue grill and dining area for your enjoyment. We also have snorkeling gear, boogie boards, beach mats, beach chairs, etc. available for your use.
It's the perfect getaway for small groups and large family vacations.

We enjoyed our time at this amazing place. The views were gorgeous from the Lanai and the house was very open and clean. This place is huge and comes with everything you need to entertain. Would definitely stay here again.
Great house very spacious and awesome beds
We stayed for 3 weeks and this house was perfect. The views are expansive with a large deck to enjoy, a good size kitchen, plenty of bathrooms, big screen TV in the living room, flat screen TVs in the bedrooms, nice furniture, that is comfortable (not the normal cheap condo stuff). But best of all really top notch mattresses on the beds! You actually don't want to get out of the bed in the morning it is just heavenly.
The house stays cool due to the elavation, but it is a short drive to Kona. Another great plus.
We have rented numerous houses in Kona for 23 years every September for work and this is one of the best. Thank you Randy, we will be contacting you soon to reserve next year.
Great Property!...except for bugs and neighbors.
I loved this house! It has a beautiful view that is just breath taking, especially from the lower level. I only really have two complaints.
1) the neighbors' dogs next door were SUPER loud all the time. They like to chase the chickens and roosters that are in the neighborhood; so, that's a little unsettling to wake up to. Also, you can't really talk outside after 9pm because the neighbors will call the owner to complain instead of just simply talking to you.
2) We did see a few roaches. Not many but enough to notice that it could potentially become an issue in the future if not taken care of quickly.
Other than those few things, the property is great and the owner is super sweet!
The house is large with plenty of cozy places to snuggle up or have your own space when sharing with others. In our group, there were three couples and two grandmothers. The house had everything we needed! We loved having our coffee on the porch overlooking Kona - so pretty. The owners are so nice -- left us a sweet goodie basket as a welcome gift. Only one negative -- The neighborhood is not perfect, but you are safe and the house is worth it.
A Great Space, Incredible View, Awesome Owners!
The Brown Turtle House is quite simply incredible! The floor plan is very open and perfect for a big group, we had eight and we could all be scattered about the main space and brain storm the itinerary for the day while cooking breakfast; so for us this space was perfect. And the view, well a picture does not do it justice, as a place to enjoy your morning cup of Kona coffee, it doesn't get much better. It is worth noting that the kitchen is beautiful, excellent equipment (blender, coffee grinder, wok, BBQ, ETC), and the counter has a beautiful model of the Hawaiian Islands built into the counter top, it is very cool! As for Randy, he is super friendly, very helpful and accommodating, very available if you need to get a hold of him, and full of knowledge! I really enjoyed talking with Randy, just a great guy! Overall, I am very glad that we were able to stay in his wonderful home on this very special island. If you need a big space and are looking to stay in the Kona area, the Brown Turtle House is what you are looking for.
Brown Turtle House
We really enjoyed staying at this property. The location, beautiful views, large kitchen, separate living areas were just fantastic. Worked out well for our group. The property was very nicely appointed and clean. Wish there was a closet in the master bedroom for hanging up clothes. Otherwise, great stay. We would stay at this property again.
There are a number of activities and excursions, information centers are located in downtown Kailua Kona on Ali'i Drive.
