I enjoyed my stay very much at Turtle Bay. This condo is right on the resort property and is very safe / secure. There is easy access to all the amenities of the Turtle Bay resort and surrounding areas in the North Shore. The condo is very cute, clean, and contains all the essentials needed from an AC unit to a washer/dryer with detergent/dryer sheets and a full size kitchen with stove top, microwave, and more. I cant wait to come back again in the future. The owner was easy to connect with and accomodating as well.

This property was a great location for beach access. The resort beach was a short drive or walking distance from the condo. The resort also had bars/restaurants that had awesome views. The condo itself was clean. I wish there was more air conditioning/cooling in the master bedroom. The living would get cool and the master would take a while. This location is great if you are looking for a quiet, beach retreat. Be prepared to drive 45 minutes+ if you are planning to do a lot of outings in Honolulu. There are a few shopping and food places nearby, but most are a drive.

Place is just as described and an ideal location for adventuring through North Shore. Close to Turtle Bay as well and walkable. Right on the scenic golf course. Property is clean and well kept. Host is very easy to communicate with if there are any problems.

I don't know how long the property had been vacated before we came to stay. The master bath had dead bugs and ants on the countertop which I had to clean before putting my things on it. It would have been nice to have had more dishes in the kitchen cabinets because I was washing dishes almost everyday luckily there was enough Cascade to go around. I was happy that there was an abundance of towels. Thank you for having hangers in the closet those came in very handy. The master bed was very comfortable. A dark colored curtain should replace the one in the master bedroom because the one it currently has lets the morning sun come in and it woke us up too early plus we were concerned that it was see-through at night. All in all we enjoyed the condo and we had a wonderful vacation! Thank you!

Beautiful location. Comfy bed. So many issues with condo- bathroom door comes off in bedroom, loud screeching toilet when used, small leak in that shower. Dirty tracks in closet door. Both closets hard to open and close sliders. To empty sink in main bathroom, you have to get under sink to release plunger. Cable and TV wires unsightly. Draperies obviously replaced in living room, but holes and tracks not repaired above them. As a host myself, my guests would have done a lot of complaining too. I would not rent out my place if it was not up to par. Property manager did offer to get leak and toilet repaired but I declined. This is an expensive property. The care and maintenance should reflect it.

Comfortable condo - not too big, not too small. Well-kept grounds! Appreciated the laundry unit and plentiful linens, especially the nice, soft bath towels. Even provided nice beach towels. Kitchen had pretty much all you could ask for. Loved the Magic Bullet blender. Baking a pizza was a challenge due to no pizza pan. Lovely pool located near our unit. Beach is just a short jaunt across the golf course. Minor negatives - patio door was extremely hard to open/close - partially off track, hard to lock; screen was totally off track. Lower outlet in living room [where the TV was plugged in] is 'dead'.

This was my second time staying at this property (the first time was back in 2015) and both experiences were great! The property is in a wonderful location, the listing/photos are accurate, and the property manager provided easy instructions and prompt communication. Would definitely stay here again in the future!

Property was nice but smaller than we anticipated based on photographs from VRBO. Also, not enough dishes and utensils for ourselves and guests. Sofa was fairly uncomfortable even though it was a sofa bed. Overall these were small problems, we really enjoyed our stay.

Location was great. Lodging was just fair. Master bedroom located at other end of air conditioner thus sleeping facilitated ONLY with room fan. If you only need a place to sleep, it works.

Loved this condo, was very clean and easily walkable to the beach. The North Shore is so beautiful and I am so happy we stayed here. I would definitely visit again.

The only suggestion I would have is... put an AC unit in the back bedroom, and clean up all the wiring below the TV.

We ended up in a different unit and it was great. A bit worn out but comfy bed and all we needed for the stay. Nicole was fantastic responding to any questions. The only main issue was noisy neighbors next door and also above us. But that can happen anywhere. After talking to them they tried harder to be more considerate. Would probably get an upstairs unit next time. The location is perfect as it’s between beaches and food trucks and surfing.

Oven does not work properly. Not enough silverware, toaster needs replacement. Did not even have salt. Have been renting these Condo’s for more than 15 years and this is the worst. L

The unit was nice. Right off the golf course and near the clubhouse so it was just a short walk to Lei Leis for coffee and breakfast each morning. It’s a short walk to the beach and a short drive to most other beaches.

It was pretty much as expected. Expensive by Australian standards. Don’t like nylon sheets. The gutters need cleaning,there was no water coming out either down pipe.Just a waterfall across the veranda.

The condo was immaculate. It had everything you could need from daily living needs (pots, pans, towels, laundry, etc) to vacation needs (beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear). It was clean, comfortable and the two bathrooms was a really nice touch. The sunset view over the golf course is stunning. 10/10 would recommend and certainly come back! Nicole is an absolute dream to work with, which is just an added bonus.

We live in Honolulu and headed out to Turtle Bay for some rest and relaxation. And beach and golf. This place has it all. Totally enjoyed our stay!

This place was so great. We will definitely be staying here again. The condo was clean and in a great location. You can get to anywhere easily on the North Shore. The only thing that would have been nice is to have AC in the bedroom but it was not really a big deal.
