The property grounds were clearly neglected. The unit itself had all the desired necessities. The people who live there yr. round were delightful! Sharing with us the “must do’s” Would we return? Probably not. Lots of places that are much nicer and more centrally located.

This condo was exactly what we needed as a family of 3 (7mo infant) for our stay. Beautiful inside and out. It was awesome they had all the beach toys and accessories we needed so we didn’t have to buy or pack any. Our child absolutely loved being able to crawl around off the back patio in the grass under the trees.

Wow, we really loved our stay here!! A perfect home away from home just a short walk from the beautiful beach and Turtle Bay Resort. We brought our 1 year old with us and especially loved having access to the pool in the complex. A great stay - we can’t wait to come back here!

I was very happy with this place! At first glance, it’s not fancy. But it has everything you need on site … great bed, beach gear - everything you will need in excellent condition right down to the cute little portable cooler. Tons of sun screen and lotion! Snorkeling at Turtle Bay was much better than expected and just in general, I was not let down by anything. Owner answered a late night call to help us get in too.

We loved this condo and our stay here. Very comfortable, private, serene. It had everything we needed and was walking distance to the resort pool and beach, which was so fun and convenient. Would love to stay again!

The condo was very homey and nice to be able to come to after a long day of having fun. The only thing I didn’t like was the stale/musty smell in the condo. It kind of smelled like urine. Other than that I am very pleased I chose this place.

We loved the pool, all the plants, and wildlife. Had coffee every morning on the lanai. Enjoyed the beach. Would definitely stay here again. Mahalo!

We had stayed on the North Shore before, and knew the Turtle Bay area was a nice place to base ourselves. We enjoyed jaunts to Haleiwa and Laie for meals and shopping, but also found great roadside fruit stands and bakeries. We enjoyed all of the Turtle Bay restaurants, and played the golf course, and enjoyed sunrises and sunsets along their beaches. This condo was an easy, comfortable place to stay. It had golf clubs, beach chairs and umbrella, boogie boards, and snorkeling gear. We were able to use all of that and not search out rentals. Having the kitchen allowed us to take advantage of leftover restaurant meals.

We enjoyed the VRBO during our time there. The quiet patio for breakfast and the easy access to all the great beaches on the island. Owners were great to work with and rental included beach items (chairs, boogie boards, etc ) which we used. 5 stars

The unit was clean and comfortable. I felt at home and relaxed. The updated touches made it feel well cared for. The view outside was amazing and I loved waking up there. The kitchen was stocked for cooking and there were a few basic items there upon arrival. The beach chairs were a huge plus. The pool was amazing but we were gone so much we didn't get to use it. The proximity to EVERYWHERE was key. The host was quick to respond and kind. I hope life brings me back to Oahu. I would stay at this unit again!

We just completed a wonderful stay at the Surfer Hale condo. We especially appreciated the ease of check in and check out, excellent communication from our hosts, plentiful amenities (e.g., cleaning products, towels, pillows, blankets, kitchen gadgets) and updated and well-maintaned furnishings. The master bed was comfortable and the neighborhood was safe and ideally-located. Thanks to our courteous and kind hosts.

We absolutely loved our stay at Kawela Bay. Was the perfect place for me and my husband, very clean, walking distance to Turtle Bay and Lei Lei's which is a must! The process with Lisa was very easy and communication was seamless. Thank you for another amazing trip in your island.

Great property and location. The perfect size for our family of 4 (with 2 kids under 10) for a short vacation. We loved the beach equipment (snorkel, boogie boards, etc). Communication with property manager was easy and seamless. We had a great stay and would rent this property again. Thank you!

This condo was perfect for our trip. Convenient to so many great beaches, dining and groceries but far enough out to feel away from it all. It was super quiet, despite being fairly close to the highway and we rarely heard any neighbor noise. The condo is clean, nicely updated and comes with all the extras to make the entire stay comfortable. The beach items were an awesome bonus. (yay for the beach umbrella!). We will gladly try to book on our next visit.

This condo is great! It has everything you need and more. It was so nice that spices and condiments were available - some of which appeared to be left from previous visitors. Really great to not have to start from scratch. We loved the property and proximity to the numerous beaches, local sites and eats on the North Shore. The fruit stands and food trucks at Kahuku were super close and great. Would definitely stay here again.

Great condo, great location. We found the condo is perfect for a couple. The house is perfectly furnished and decorated to get the Hawaiian experience. Has everything you need. Kitchen was stocked well, beach chairs, snorkel gear, cooler, beach towels. The lanai is private and beautiful. I saw some comments about bird noise, but I found the birds to be a wonderful experience. The noise I would mention would be the road noise. This unit is next to the entrance road to turtle bay and somewhat close to the highway. That said, it was defiantly not a deal breaker. The is much to do at the resort, and the condo is also nicely located to much more. Overall, a fantastic place! Mahalo

Condo was beautiful, clean and very close to Turtle Bay Beach and Golf Course. Owner takes very good care of the unit. All you need to bring is your clothes, shoes, food and toiletries. Everything else is ready for you. Awesome place! Love the location on ground floor with a beautiful backyard lanai.

My husband and I had a great time at the North Slope. The location of the property was perfect! The only slight issue was the heat in the condo. Coming from Alaska it would have been nice to have air conditioning throughout. But, everything in the condo meant our needs and the place was wonderful!

We had a wonderful time! The condo had all the basic supplies needed. AC unit in bedroom adequate to cool the bedroom but not the main living area--not a big problem as we were outside most of the time but made it hot for the person sleeping on the pull out bed in living area. Other than that; everything was perfect and would stay in the area again! Easy walk to beach each day.

We found everything we needed to self cater and also enjoy the beach. It was very straight forward checking in and the rental was the right size for our family with very small kids. Our 6 month old baby had a crib and 2 year old slept on the pull out couch. Turtle Bay beach was awesome and not far. Lots of amenities at the resort which were super handy. Lovely rental where we would stay again.

Our recent stay at Joan Price's vacation home was a great experience. The property is located in close proximity to whatever we wanted including fantastic golf, beaches and restaurants. The condo is exactly as described and was clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped. We would definitely return to this property when visiting this area and recommend it to others.

This was our second stay in Joan's condo and as usual, we enjoyed it. It is a great spot if you have children as the condo in the ground floor with a lot of open space for kids to enjoy themselves in a nicely landscaped area that provides shade and a nice breeze.

We loved our stay here. The location was perfect for exploring the north shore of O'ahu. 10 minutes to Laie in one direction and 15-20 minutes to Haleiwa in the other direction and plenty of beach options in either direction. We loved the nice swimming pool which we would go to after being at one of the many wonderful beaches nearby. The unit is on the ground floor which was nice too. Inside the unit was very nice with a nice kitchen, bathroom and living room as well as a bedroom. We liked having a fully stocked kitchen (mostly for breakfast) and plenty of space for watching TV or getting stuff done on a laptop. The Wifi was fast and reliable. It was also nice having a washer/dryer to do laundry. There is a wall unit A/C in the bedroom which helped for sleeping at night because it did get hot (we were there in mid August). But it is sort of loud when it kicks in and off during the night, so we slept better with foam ear plugs. If you leave the windows open for the breeze, just be aware that the birds in the large trees outside the bedroom will wake you up very early (another reason for the ear plugs), but what a nice way to wake up and be reminded that you're in Hawaii! Also, we appreciated that there were beach chairs, umbrella, towels and snorkeling gear in the closet to use at the beaches. That was a nice surprise. There was also an air mattress in the bedroom closet which we never used since we didn't have our kids with us on this trip, but you could easily sleep a few more in the living room between the air mattress and the couch. We loved our stay in this condo and would highly recommend it.

I love this home! It was such a home feeling. All the things they provide is cool. Towels, chairs, umbrella, extra blankets. My wife and kids love this place. I highly recommend this home. Especially the location is awesome. The 4 star is because there is no AC in the living room. Other than that awesome! Mahalo.
