About the property

5 bedroom, 3.5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12 people

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.

Very nice up to date house.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice, affordable and clean. The view from the house is breathtaking. It is also near all attractions, businesses, airport, etc. The caretaker is very nice and easy to contact. We enjoyed our stay very much. This was our second time to stay in the house. The only negative aspect of the house is the parking. The driveway and parking area takes some caution to get into and out of. For the price, we will consider staying again.

Great house very spacious and awesome beds

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 3 of 5

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!
