This was our first time in Hawaii and this was the most amazing location! We were literally a 30 second walk to the beach. The villa was stocked beyond our expectations with plenty of cooking utensils. The host had thought ahead about our baby daughter’s needs and provided a Pack N Play, beach toys, a high chair, and other things. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! From check in to check out, it was simple and free of hassle.
Definitely recommend! You can’t go wrong with this villa!
Such a relaxing and beautiful property with Amazon beach access. Maile was such a nice host and very responsive. Would definitely stay here again.
Unit was as a advertised
I do wish you could have a true connection to the with the resorts payment and facility systems so you could charge to a room and use their pool and beach amenities.
Not a big deal.
North shore is more laid back which for us works great.
We had a great Family vacation here. The unit was very clean with lots of things to use like snorkels and boogie boards. Our favorite thing about the unit was the location though. Being on the first floor and having the grass area just outside made it feel like you had your own yard. It was also so convenient with kids going to the pool and beach, so easy to just go back and forth quickly. Also having the BBQ just outside was so convenient as well, you could see the bbq the whole time and could just walk in and out of the place instead of having to stay out there the whole time you were waiting for things to cook.
Communication and check in was great, they were very accommodating and we look forward to coming back!
We rented both units, and it was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 2 children! Villas were exactly as described, well stocked, and contained all amenities needed! Communication was great. Owner and property manger were very quick to respond to all of our questions. 5 star all around, and would highly recommend!
Fabulous property. Great location. The villa had absolutely every amenity possible. Looking forward to a return trip
Accommodations were excellent. Had all of the amenities that you could possibly need. The staff was extremely organized and efficient. My family and I really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back again.
We had an amazing time staying at this beautiful property. It had everything we needed and showed just as listed. We will definitely return for our next visit to the North Shore.
Fantastic place as advertised. The owner and property manager were great, the place was well stocked. Real home away from home and prime location on resort grounds.
Thank you, Carrie, we loved your villa and loved being steps away from the beach. Everything was perfect!
Wonderful vacation home on the beach. Walk to Turtle Bay Resort, Roy's Beach House, golf and more. Everything you want and need is at your fingertips for a truly enjoyable vacation in paradise.
The villa was one of the best vacation rentals our family has ever had the pleasure of experiencing. We were here for 5 days of our two week Oahu holiday and if I could have changed the reservation to stay all 14 days I would have. As so many others have said in their review, the villa lacked for nothing in terms of all the big and small things one needs and wants, from lovely soaps to beach toys to an awesome margarita maker. The beds were comfortable and everything was spotless. The complex is also extremely clean and well maintained. The newly renovated Turtle Bay Resort is a short walk away and is spectacular. Stunning views, lovely restaurants and a gorgeous aesthetic. Please don’t pass up a chance to experience the North Shore at this rental. Thank you Carrie and Maile for all of your attention to detail.
We were first time visitors to Hawaii. We truly lucked out when we decided to stay at this villa located on the turtle Bay resort on the North Shore of Oahu. We were fairly close to most things we had wanted to do, but even the drive to Pearl Harbor was not difficult. The kitchen had everything we needed or wanted, and everything from the full ice container in the freezer down to the toilet paper was top rate. We would definitely stay here again. We had such a short walk to the beach it was fabulous. Thank you!
This was an excellent and extremely well-maintained property. All communication was very clear and we were well looked after.
A beautiful property with everything you could need in the house from dishes, pots/pans to snorkeling gear & boogie boards. So close to the beach & ocean-ideal location! Definitely would love to come back!
We had the most incredible time at this Kawela Bay Villa. Traveling with kids and grandparents can be challenging but this place check all the boxes for the perfect family vacation. Very impressed with the kitchen amenities and how well it was organized!! We will be back!!
This was an absolute home run for our family and friends. The condo was impeccably maintained and was a perfect layout. The patio and grass provided an amazing indoor/outdoor feel and the location and proximity to the beach, pool and resort was unmatched in the entire community. We will definitely be coming back here to stay!
Great location just steps away from the beach at Turtle Bay. The villa is well stocked and nicely furnished. Would recommend.
This home was steps from the beach and the pool. Home was well stocked in the kitchen, beach "stuff" (chairs, cooler, umbrella, etc) and a perfect space to relax.
Beautiful condo right on the water. Hosts were very friendly, we had a wonderful stay and would recommend again.
This villa is so gorgeous, and was a lovely place for my family to stay. It was very clean. We loved the lanai that connects to the grassy area outside and that you can walk right out to the beach from there. We also appreciated how easy Maile made the check-in/check-out process. Mahalo!
Fabulous location, clean property, and very comfortable beds!!
We will recommend to our friends and family. It was a wonderful experience from booking to checking in and out. Our family enjoyed the amenities as well as helpfulness of Maile. She even mailed my daughters reading glasses with no complaint or charge. Really appreciate Maile. Thanks
Caroline & Steve J.
Wow!!!! Can’t wait to return!!!!
Loved our stay here. Loved the North Shore. Loved the newly renovated Turtle Bay Resort.
Best equipped property we have stayed at.
Especially appreciated all of the Malie products which are a personal favorite.
Booking and communication positive, easy and efficient.
The accommodations were wonderful for our friends trip and birthday celebration. The villa is very well stocked, with well appointed kitchen, baths and beach gear. The pool and hot tub area were clean and never crowded. We often had it all to ourselves. We enjoyed dinner at the Beach House, only steps away, walked the trails nearby, and lunch and cocktails at the resort pool area. The pool at the resort is not available to the villa visitors, but ultimately we enjoyed the quiet of the villa pool enough. We wishes we didn’t need to meet anyone to check in so we could have more leisure time from the airport. That would be our only 4 out of 5 stars. We would definitely return!!
Felt like the descriptor and photo misrepresented the "ocean front" as we were more like pool side with a view of the beach. The unit itself was spectacular inside and really well equipped. No complaints there. Would just have preferred a true unobstructed view of the ocean;)
Just an overall amazing experience! Perfect property, perfect location, and perfect place! Ideal especially if you have kids! Will be back again hopefully!!
My husband and I along with our adult children and their wife and boyfriend enjoyed this property very much. We have always wanted to spend a few days on the North Shore and this 3 bedroom two bath bill met all of our needs. Kitchen was extremely well equipped and beds were comfortable with many amenities supplied in the kitchen and bathrooms! It was nice to have the resort nearby for cocktails and sunsets as well as a dinner, but we also took advantage of the BBQ and cooked in. The beach and pool were just steps away and we took full advantage of both. Maile checked us in and was very gracious as she gave us a brief tour. We would most definitely return and certainly hope to very soon!
Not only are you seconds from the beach, semi-private pool, grill and outdoor showers, but the built in amenities and customer service of Maile was beyond helpful for a large family. Would definitely book again or recommend to anyone looking for the full customer experience of being part of Turtle Bay without having to stay in a hotel.
Excellent. No problems at all and the transfer of dates from 2020 to 2021 due to COVID was very easy to accomplish
Location is just about perfect. It’s steps from the beach, pool, grill and shower. There are 3 large bedrooms, perfect for a large family. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, cookware, spices, and plates. There are lots of towels and beach supplies available to use. All you really need to bring is food. Check in is simple. We’d definitely stay again.
Clean and Maile was awesome!
Villa was just as we expected after reviewing property on vrbo. A great villa for family stay!
Beautiful & comfortable villa right by the ocean. Villa was super clean, tastefully decorated and relaxing. Has everything you need and more! Property Manager, Maile, was very friendly and always available for communication. Totally enjoyed our stay!
Simple online booking. Efficient check in with Meier who was also responsive to text messages. . Layout and size was perfect for 3 couples. Clean and very nice decor, felt like home! All the beach amenities available and just steps to the resort beach cove. Central location to everything else in north shore. Looking to stay again next year!
Let me start by saying we travel often and stay in villas only. We travel to the Caribbean several times a year and have been to Oahu twice. We wanted to stay in Turtle Bay because of the cove and the protection from the reef. The beach was fantastic--not huge waves like I worry about on the North Shore. I also liked the fact that we could go out to the beach chairs at 9 am and not have to fight for a chair or wake up at 6 am to get a place on the beach (this has been our experience at other resorts in Hawaii). There were many people snorkeling, but we found the water to be too murky and not a lot of fish for the trouble. There are better spots on the island for snorkeling. It is a good spot to teach the kids to snorkel though, as the waves were calm this time of year.
As for the villa itself it was exactly as promised and the property manager (who lives on island) was prompt and attentive in returning our calls. The villa was very clean and maintained and we would definitely stay here again if we return to the North Shore. Even though the unit is attached to another unit (condo living) we never heard our neighbors and it was very quiet. I loved the fact that I could see the pool and the beach from the patio, and walk directly out of the sliding doors to the beach that was just a stone's throw away. Also the Turtle Bay beach restaurant was very close by (a minute's walk) and other property restaurants were close by and good too.
The only small issue was the bathtub drains were not working right. I did tell Michele (the property manager) about it and she promised they would fix them but I told her not to worry about it during our stay.
I have been a property manager before and was overall impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the villa. You simply can't go wrong staying here.
This was my family's first trip to the North Shore and Turtle Bay and we loved everything about it! The condo exceeded all of our expectations, the kitchen was stocked (and VERY clean!) with everything needed to cook when we wanted, we also used liked the barbeque right out front. Michele met us the first night at the condo and was always available for any questions, from the best place to buy groceries to recommendations around the area. We especially liked that it was a ground floor unit with no one above us, so it was very quiet, but right in front was the gate to the beach. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to returning again in the future!
For my parents 50th anniversary we stayed at the Ocean Villa at Turtle Bay. The Villa is great because you have access to all of the hotel's amenities and yet you feel like you are in a private beach house. My Dad has a hard time walking around so the Bell Desk was very helpful in getting him around to the restaurants and even providing a wheelchair for us to use.
The Villa itself is beautiful,very clean and fully furnished. We had a party of 8 and were very comfortable. Just a few steps outside and you are on the beach, at the pool or grilling your dinner as the sun sets on the beautiful Pacific Ocean. We enjoyed all of this and more. The resort is home to several great restaurants, an award winning golf course and many other activities to enjoy.
My family and I had a wonderful time together and I couldn't think of a better place to have celebrated my parents 50th. I strongly recommend the Ocean Villa to anyone wanting to enjoy the North Shore. You can be on Oahu and have that outer island feeling at the same time.
This villa was extremely well kept & clean! My hubby & I enjoyed the Jacuzzi, which is conveniently placed just steps away from the patio. The view was gorgeous at sunset & sunrise and was a perfect way for us to start & end each day.
We loved that we could walk everywhere & didn't have to rent a car.
I had an amazing day at the spa while my husband golfed 18 holes at Turtle Bay.
Such a GREAT way to spend our honeymoon!
We had such an awesome stay at this condo last September. My wife and I brought our 2 children and we stayed there for 5 days and were blown away by the whole experience. The entire condo was put together with such great style & decor & was so spacious! My wife and I loved watching our kids snorkeling as we lounged on the back patio. All of the restaurants in walking distance were excellent. We can't wait to stay there again!
