Aloha! Your tropical island condo at the beautiful Turtle Bay and Kuilima Estates awaits you. This is the ultimate Hawaiian vacation rental! We're located on 840 acres of landscaped gated grounds, the only tropical resort on Oahu's tranquil North Shore!

Get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and other crowded vacation spots and enjoy the relaxed paradise at Turtle Bay. Here, you'll find our tastefully decorated one bedroom condominium with 2 full bathrooms sitting on the 17th fairway of the Fazio golf course. The condo comes with a queen-size bed in the master bedroom, with its own full bathroom. The living room has a queen-size Murphy Bed with closets and drawers and a full second full bathroom all its own!

The Condo has all the comforts of home including a full size kitchen with a stove, dishwasher, full sized fridge with all the appliances/cookware to make your own meals. And unlike many condos at Turtle Bay who only provide A/C in the bedroom, we have air conditioning throughout! We also have a washer/dryer, 2 cable TVs, high speed wired/wireless internet and ceiling fans in a beautiful Hawaiian decor. The complex is a 10-minute stroll onto any beach, depending on which route you take, and just a two-minute walk away on site are 2 heated pools with barbeques and tennis courts. It's less than a mile to hiking and biking trails and onto the public beach where every evening you can watch incredible sunsets.

The clean, sandy beach and sheltered reef cove, a ten-minute stroll away, is a great place to enjoy calm water, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, or just relaxing. Or, walk just outside the reef cove to take in some pounding surf! From here you can enjoy miles of pristine white-sand beaches the resort has to offer. There are 12 miles of secluded beachfront, forested trails, and bike paths for you to explore - sometimes without ever running into other people!

Just a two-minute drive away is the Turtle Bay Hotel where you can book trips to see waterfalls, take aerial tours, surf lessons, kayak tours, luau shows, rent mopeds, go on a segway tour, or get an oceanside massage. The Turtle Bay hotel offers condo residents use of several restaurants, both indoor, outdoor, and beachfront dining, and gift shops. For an additional fee, you can use their gym facilities and take fitness and yoga classes. Also, walking distance to the condo is a horse-riding stable with ocean and trail riding available.

We're a short drive to other famous North Shore Beaches, the Banzai Pipeline, Waimea Bay, Historic Haleiwa town, and the Polynesian Cultural Center. You can see sea turtles and dolphins all year round and humpback whales in the winter from this area. In adjacent Haleiwa Town, you will also find charming boutiques and galleries selling unique island jewelry, clothing, books, art, music, home decor, local grown pineapples, mangos, papayas, macadamia nuts and other tropical delights. Here there are more equipment rentals, lessons, and other activities available, but again you might not need any of that as there's enough to do around the resort where we have some extra beach gear you can borrow too! If you have a little one, we have a Pak-N-Play and high chair that comes with the condo.

Easy access to everything and the whole deal is exactly as described

This property was perfect for our 5 day stay on the north shore! It was sparkling clean and had everything we needed! the owners anticipated everything. The air conditioner also worked very well however we didn’t use it after the first day because the trade winds created cool breezes while we slept. The location was also perfect!

My husband and I have stayed at several vacation properties. This one was the best stocked with needed extras. The only thing I would recommend is having true beach chairs. There are two camping chairs but not easy to carry to the beach. Overall great experience.

We loved our stay at Mike and Maria's place! It's in a quiet area, right on the golf course and walking distance to Turtle Bay. Also just down the street from dozens of great places to eat! We would stay again for sure.

This listing is exactly as described. It is a ten minute walk from Kuilima Cove, where we snorkeled every day. The screened in porch is a plus, we enjoyed each meal there. I would not hesitate to recommend this location.

Very underwhelming stay. Condo was not very clean, but not filthy. It needs a few things repaired (toilet seat, washer, coffee maker). The furniture is low grade and should be arranged to take in the outside view. It needs a few rugs as the floor feels sticky and dusty all the time. Basically, don’t come here for a romantic getaway, as we did. Lol.

We have a family of three and found the condo to be the perfect size for us. We loved the location and staying on the north shore. We appreciated the quiet, loved the pools and found that we had them to ourselves often. We had a question about the washer and the manager was prompt to reply. All in all it was a great stay.

Nice condo, clean although there were many little bugs, a centipede as well. Great breeze through the apartment. Loved the location. And the screened lanai Would be nice to have a place outside to wash feet outside the pool. Parking good

We had a wonderful time staying a week in the condo! Great location within a 10 minute walk from resort and beach. Great home base for exploring the north shore and beyond. Quiet, safe, and well maintained condo complex surrounded by beautiful golf course. Easy to communicate with very nice owners and property manager. Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend! Thank you for opening your home!

Our place was a great location .It was very clean.and we enjoyed our pool and close to turtle bay and Ted’s bakery.We we’re able to cook our meals here which was nice and we had nice trade winds .We understand that things break down and our washing machine was not working our entire stay however we were accommodated to do our washing at another unit. I was not able to do a load before I left and would have like to not put my dirty clothes in my suitcase and we normally wash our sheets and towels to help out the cleaner.We would definitely stay here again and Thankyou for your hospitality.

Kulima Estates at Turtle Bay- wonderful condo on the golf course. So economical; very quiet; loved hearing the birds and ocean- better than staying at a hotel! The only drawback was that the washing machine wasnt working, and I was really counting on being able to wash clothes, which is one reason why I like getting condos when I visit Hawaii- had to hand-wash some items- lol. The condo was neatly arranged and clean, too, with room for 3! Would stay there again.

A perfect fit for our short stay on Oahu. We loved the windward breeze and sitting in the lanai watching the sunrise.

Your condo was very nice and in a great location! It was the perfect size for us and absolutely met our needs. Loved the pool area. Just a short walk to the beach which was beautiful; and also to the Turtle Bay Resort frequented for gorgeous sunsets, shopping and dinners. The 4 of us had an awesome time exploring the island doing tours, hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, cliff jumping, swimming with sharks, sunset cruise and more. I can’t say enough about how gorgeous Oahu is. We hope to return! Nancy and family

To be inside this amazing resort and stay at a place that doesn’t break the bank is great ! Quiet place to go back to from the resort crowd! Loved it but just time for some more modern up grades on furniture and decor! Beds were comfortable! breeze great !

This condo was perfect for a family of 3 adults. The check in process was simple and Sarah, the property manager answered all my questions via text or message on the Vrbo app. The photos on the website didn’t do it justice as to how lovely it was. We rarely used the A/C because of the trade winds that brought in cool air throughout the house. Master bed was comfortable and having two bathrooms really was convenient. The kitchen had all the supplies that you would need. I spent a lot of time on the lanai and it was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy tea or coffee in the mornings. The walk to Turtle Bay resort was short and we enjoyed going to the beach there. I would love to come back and stay again.

Overall I’m very happy I chose this condo. It was perfect being close to turtle bay and walking distance to the beach. The breeze in the condo was amazing so no need for AC. The only problem was communication with the host. We tried twice to communicate and both times it took days for a reply. I would still suggest you stay here. My whole family loved it.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay here. We were out a lot so didn’t spend a lot of time at the condo but it had everything we needed while we were there!



May 2022
Overall this was an okay condo. We have stayed in other condos within the same complex before and they were booked for our family of 4 coming over from the Big Island, so we took the chance knowing that this one looked a bit “funkier”. We have two daughters who are very flexible and well traveled, so funky is fine, but there were MANY simple fixes that this condo needs. A few changes could make it a 5 star. We can’t help but wonder if the property manager isn’t communicating with the owners (who appear to live on the mainland)? - dirty dishes and tongs in cupboards - plenty of pillows, but all of them were less than an inch thick…and no extra pillow cases/sheets anywhere! - broken kitchen light held up by duct tape that kept falling down - loose shower head in master- turned on water and it almost fell on my husband’s head -the “house binder” with instructions etc. was falling apart and outdated- tv instructions were wrong We send aloha and hope these changes are made, but we will stay elsewhere next time we visit Oahu.

We loved our stay here! It felt like a home away from home the moment we stepped in. Location was great and ideal for us wanting to be away from the tourist-y places. Turtle Bay is beautiful and a great spot for snorkeling. The home itself was clean and tidy. It had all the amenities we needed...fully equipped kitchen, laundry, beach towels, etc. The beds and sofa were comfortable! We all slept so well. We didn't need the air con on at all. The sea breeze through the condo was amazing. It's hard to find a place like this (2 bathrooms!) at such a reasonable price! Owner and property manager were communicative and left detailed instructions which we appreciated. There were some beach gear that we used and thank goodness for the sand toys because I forgot to pack some for my little one! I would definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful stay in this condo. Easy walks to the beaches, coves, area hikes, and short drives to all the North Shore has to offer. The master bedroom is spacious and comfortable. Really great to have 2 full bathrooms and full kitchen. The condo gets a fabulous breeze, and it was a slice of paradise to chill on the lanai after snorkeling in the cove nearby. We made good use of the beach towels and mats provided and enjoyed the short walk to the Turtle Bay Resort and beaches. Communication with the site manager and owners was easy and responsive. Would stay here again.

The condo was clean and well-equipped. We went in February so there was no need to use ac. The room stays cool with the natural breeze. Condo is walking distance to Turtle Bay. The pool is also heated and a short walk from condo. My kids enjoyed it. North Shore is beautiful and a lot less crowded than Honolulu/Waikiki area.

Showing its age, but still a nice place. We’ll equipped kitchen and a good location. Much frustration getting in the front door because there are two lock boxes and the one that unlocks the door is hidden behind the screen door.

wanted more ocean view from the condo. stayed on ground floor and heard children running and bouncing balls till late at night. Wish we could have used the pool at Turtle Bay. We ate at Turtle Bay but could not use the pool. The condo was clean and comfortable but needed more toilet paper, had to go to a store to get some. I guess old folks use more than 2 rolls in a week. Thanks for the memories.

We had a wonderful stay at the condo which was close to all of our favorite North Shore spots and let us explore some new ones like the pill box hike at Kawela Bay! Thank you for a wonderful time!

Located in the heart of a resort community, Mike and Maria's condo offers easy access to hiking trails, beautiful beaches restaurants and golf. It's perfect for a couple that want to take in the beautiful north shore of Oahu. We cooked in one evening and purchased take out dinner on others from nearby restaurants. The kitchen is very modern and well equipped, but note the grille on property requires charcoal (no propane). Check-in/out was a breeze. We would definitely stay here again.

Exactly as pictured! We stayed for a week and were very comfortable. First time traveling with a 1year old and had everything we needed. Didn’t have to worry about a crib or high chair, and there was plenty of beach toys! The property was practically baby proofed which also made us very comfortable. We loved walked on the golf course in the morning and finding different ways to get to Turtle Bay. Communication was great with owners & property manager. Would absolutely recommend this property!

The property was clean, the host was very friendly, property was stocked with everything we needed to make our stay feel like a home away from home. Great location, walking distance to beach and major resort. Would love to go back some time and book property with same host.

This property is in the condos just outside of Turtle Bay resort. It is a good location on the North shore. The condo itself seemed dated. Some paint and extra cleaning would go a long way. Not a lot of amenities and we didn't discover the beach gear until the last day because it was in a closet off the lanai. There wasn't much description about the area or the different locations of things. No maps. Also no description about the beach gear being in the closet. Make sure that if you plan to stay there that you bring your own supplies like toilet paper, laundry soap, etc. as you have just the bare basics to start. The barbecues are charcoal only which we didn't know ahead of time and you have to supply your own charcoal. They need new pillows as the pillows that are available for both beds are completely flat. This wasn't a terrible rental but definitely needs a little more TLC especially for the cost. The one thing I did like is that it had air conditioning in both the living room and bedroom which made it comfortable especially in summer and also they provided a cooler and had the freezer packs in the freezer to keep things cold when we were on the go. Also it is a nice quick walk to the beach for the sunset.
