Overall the place was perfect for us. We are a family of 4 with 2 young children and they slept on the pull out bed and it was perfect for them. There was plenty of bedding and pillows for everyone and they were all clean and in good condition.
We didn't end up using the dishwasher but the rest of the appliances worked great. The condo is in good condition and we felt at home there.
It's really hot when you first walk in but once we got the fans on and the AC on, it cooled down significantly by the time we went to bed. Otherwise the temperature didn't bother us during the day when we were there.
The only negative I have was in the communication at the beginning. When I booked the condo I requested to have a late checkout since I have a 3 year old who still naps during the day. We had a redeye out and wanted him to nap because I knew he wouldn't sleep on the plane. I didn't hear back after booking and gave it a few days before I followed up. I didn't hear back again and followed up a second time when I was given a different person to contact. This person responded to me within a day or so and said we could do late checkout but that it wasn't guaranteed. Then I was told the next day that someone booked for that evening so we could not do late checkout. I get it, it's a business. However, I did pay for 6 nights and requested this well in advance to have a late check out for that day. Basically, it's a great place to stay, but don't plan on a late checkout.
We love staying at turtle bay condos. This condo was a bit dated but for the price it was fine. We appreciated the beach stuff like the snorkel and boogie boards.
The condo was very nice and it was hard to leave! The neighbors next door do live there full time, so they have a mess on the front porch. Other than that, you don’t hear them at all and we would come back anytime.
Quiet, beautiful area.
Very nice unit on the golf course. Also great to have a laundry right in the unit.
Condo was clean, tidy, & comfortable. It had everything we needed for the 5 days we stayed. The neighborhood was very quiet and well kept. Check in & out was extremely easy and fast . This condo was a short drive to many beaches. We had no problems at all during our stay and we enjoyed our time.
Clean, comfortable, and well located. Everything is good with the unit and the complex as a whole. Everything worked and the extras like beach equipment was a nice touch and appreciated. Zero leftovers policy does mean you need to bring condiments.The golf course has been decommissioned but is still being maintained. Same level next door unit don’t project the same clean tidy image as the common entrance was cluttered with sports equipment and even a kitchen sink. Constant pot smell. Didn’t bother us but if you’re hyper sensitive!
The Turtle Bay Resort area is 3 -4 miles away from the nearest town. The condo is a ground floor unit on the golf course (which was closed during our stay).
Clean (but somewhat dated).
Quiet (most of the time).
Nice sized for 2 adults (you could squeeze in two more people on the sofa sleeper).
Easy gated access.
Several nice and clean swimming pools on the grounds.
Comfy king-sized bed.
Several beaches within 1/2 mile with rocks for seeing fish while snorkeling.
2 nearby natural areas.
Sharks Cove was amazing.
Sunsets off the point were spectacular.
AC unit in bedroom only. Cooling the rest of the unit required brisk trade winds.
Sofa sleeper smelled like mildew (a little Febreeze solved this).
Upstairs unit had 3 small children who liked to run at 6 AM. (not sure if it was a rental or not).
Eating at the Turtle Bay restaurants was very pricey. Other sit down dining options in the area were hard to find. The North Shore caters to day-trippers with food trucks and such.
Using the clothes dryer resulted in hot air in the unit. Not sure if the vent is blocked or just too long to get most of the air out.
Neighboring unit had a used bathroom sink and a bunch of other stuff stacked along the entrance walkway making things look dumpy.
Room smell musty from bedding, sofa bed almost tumble down when I move. And I couldn’t sleep all night. I have to sleep on the floor better than that. Small AC only in the bed room. For living room no AC and floor fan doesn’t work. We have to clean up everything before we leave even bedsheets pillow and towels if we don’t do that they will charge extra. And lastly neighbors who lives up stairs children they running above your head all the time (I woke up at6:0am the start running until I got the bed still running) so disappointed if you paid almost $400 per night for this experience.
We were very happy with the property access and location. Check in was detailed and worked as instructed. The property faced the Fazio Course which is currently closed but this worked out nicely as we were not disturbed early by gardeners of golfers. All appliances were clean and worked. The only comment I have is that the bathroom sink was constantly dripping which affected my conscience as it was a water wate. The Property manager did contact me once that a plumber was coming out to look at it but he did not replace the leaky unit. There was a toddler staying in the unit above us, so there was the sound of little feet running across the ceiling many times but this did not reallly bother us. A good stay!
The condo is superficially clean, when you first walk in it looks great. And the directions we were given to get in were easy to follow and check-in went smoothly. Within 10-15 minutes, you notice huge dust bunnies all over the ceiling and tops of the drapes (particularly in the bedroom). You are told to use the AC unit sparingly and instead open the windows. That works OK when it is not super windy (which it was, unfortunately, causing doors to slam when we tried to circulate air) and not at night (not safe to have a screen door open all night with a teen daughter in the other room and the master being right next to the parking lot). If we did use the AC unit, it started leaking all over the floor within 20-30 minutes. The fans in the bedroom are both very weak and provided very little cool air. The fans in the family room were much better. The kitchen was very well stocked which was great. However, the fridge/freezer is growing black mold in a few spots (they have attempted to paint over it). And the area between the oven and the fridge is flat-out gross. It needs a very good cleaning which would not be difficult, just pull the fridge out and clean. They have gotten new furniture since they took pictures. The fold-out couch is extremely uncomfortable, you can feel the springs through the mattress. Our daughter opted to sleep on the floor. They have a beautiful wood floor, but it was not put in well and has massive gaps between the planks in many spots. They have not taken the time to recenter any of the pictures since getting new furniture, so it just looks unkempt and sloppy. This condo needs so major TLC. It is in a great location and has potential, it is just not taken care of well enough to actually provide a comfortable place to stay after a long day of activities, especially when it is hard to cool the place down. We had friends staying in two other condos in the same development, and their condos were immaculate and the AC worked great. Hopefully the owners will spend some serious time deep cleaning this place and making it more comfortable We have stayed in VRBOs all over the US and this place was one of the most uncomfortable and run-down condos we have stayed in unfortunately. (We did not attempt to contact the property manager during our stay but we also had no contact which is surprising, typically when we rent a condo they check in with us after a day or two, which I think is excellent customer service!)
An entryway for two condominiums. The owner or long-term tenant of the apartment next to us, used the doorway / entrance area as a storage area for various shoes, toys, bottles, garbage.There was a constant smell of weeds so we could not open the windows. Our own terrace was more of a storage area for the owner of our the apartment, so it was not pleasant to be on the terrace. When we checked out, we were asked to wash the towels and bed linens, take out the trash, and wash the dishes. For the price of the overnight stay, this should be included in the price. The furniture in the apartment was old, but mostly clean. The ventilation in the bathroom should be cleaned to prevent germs. The apartment is very close to a busy street. We could hear all the footsteps of the other apartment above us. Would definitely not book this apartment again .
This is a great place for a small family if kids don’t mind sleeping on a couch/floor cushions. Our kids loved it - walking distance to beach, good food and turtle bay resort. Highly recommend it.
Property was not well maintained
The property was exactly as advertised. We enjoyed it.
Renee Ann D.
Enjoyed location walking to beach.
Clean, close to pool and barbeque. Short walk to beach. And Lei Lei's
The unit is as pictured. It’s a little dated and the fan in the bathroom is really loud. It was nice having a washer and dryer in unit. The neighborhood is quiet. Great value for the location.
The communication was excellent- everything was easy. The pull out couch is not very comfortable though. You can feel the springs. Otherwise, great stay. Lots of kitchen items and plenty of towels and beach chairs etc to use. We would stay here again.
Such a beautiful property! Very easy to access with clear instruction upon arrival to access the unit. The space was very clean and tidy with clear information on the property and its amenities. Check out was quick and thoroughly lined out in the unit. Such a wonderful place to stay!
It's a good condo, quite dated though. And we saw a roach :(
Overall, we enjoyed the condo and the location was ideal for our needs. We found the living area and kitchen to be very hot in July since there is only a/c in the bedroom. We ran out of toilet paper but found the condo to be well equipped from kitchen needs to beach gear otherwise. The couch bed is uncomfortable as they typically are so one teen slept on the couch and didn’t pull it out after the first night and the other teen slept on a floor futon mattress. Furnishings are outdated but were sufficient. Good communication from the manager also. We would stay again if we needed a budget friendly option in the future.
Lovely condo, great location. Walking distance to Turtle Bay and hiking trails, quiet complex with all the basics.
Thank you, we would go back again.
The communication was great, the fit is great, I just found it a little dusty and the pillows were full of mold.
