Beautiful condo in a great location. We had the best stay and the host was very helpful!

Our group was divided in two different condos so we never needed to cook in the unit as we were together more in the larger one for gathering. We only used it for sleeping and showers. The absolute best perk of the unit is the hook-up to surf lessons on the North Shore from the owners. Best day of the trip for the teenagers in the group. Thank you so much for that amazing activity. Five star service! My only suggestion is to be more clear that it really isn't two units (there are two sleeping areas- - one in the middle of the kitchen/living room and the other a private bedroom) but for what needed it still worked really well.

Condo is well maintained. Location is good. Lots of hiking trails in the area to enjoy. Pool is nice. Beach at Turtle Bay Resort is nice as well.

The North Shore is such a special place and this condo is in an amazing location. Lots of beach access nearby and a fantastic grouping of fruit stands and organic shave ice across the street. Sandra was fantastic to work with and was always responsive to any communication. We have stayed in other properties in this same complex and the lanai was such an added bonus. Our family loved the extra amenities and the beach toys were enjoyed by our kids. We highly recommend. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Had a great time. Super close to Turtle Bay Resort (5 min walk). Lay out of condo is great. Big family room. Separate bedroom with loft and more beds, then another bedroom. Held us all very comfortably. Highly recommend.

This was a great place to stay, if you are visiting the North Shore. The place was neat and clean. Check-in was easy. I would have liked a check-out time of 11am (instead of 10am), so we are not rushed trying to get out. Overall though, it was great!! Thank-you!!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My husband and I enjoyed our 10 day stay at our vacation rental. It was clean, comfortable and conveniently located to all our adventures and experiences of the North Shore. We came to relax and destress and that’s exactly what we achieved. The Garden Hale at Kuilima Estates was wonderful.

We had a wonderful stay with our family of 4 at the condo in Turtle bay. Location was very convenient, only a few blocks walk to the beach and restaurants at the resort. The rooms and facilities in the condo were top notch, and the kitchen was stocked appropriately for us to cook a few meals. We also loved the bin with all the beach gear, it was very convenient to have the chairs, boogie boards and other items. Overall a fantastic stay and we would highly recommend for others!

Beautiful, quiet condo, walking distance to turtle bay resort and the beach. Short drive to many other north shore sites. We will defiantly stay again.

Our rental experience in this condo was excellent. All details were accurate and well described in the listing. The condo was SPOTLESS, amenities were perfect--especially the beach chairs and beach towels--and the condo community was quiet and relaxing. Thoroughly enjoyed taking advantage of the restaurant at Turtle Bay golf club and the beach bars at Turtle Bay resort. I would recommend this condo to anyone--the listing provides all the information you need.

We stayed here with our two older teens and my 70+ mom and all really enjoyed it. The location is good for exploring the North Shore. It's a pleasant walk up to the Turtle Bay resort, but also the parking lot there is free to use if you want to drive with all your beach stuff (beach is public.) My husband and I enjoyed walking up for live music and drinks at the resort bar. The restaurant at the golf shop is a quick walk. Ted's is just down the highway. We also really enjoyed walking on the trails by the beach, petting goats at the stables, seeing all the toads on the golf course at night, and the many birds that visited!

We loved the location on the golf course and we were able to walk to the resort/beaches (about 10 minute walk). Also, there is a really good restaurant about a 5 minute walk. The location was quiet, and the condo was spacious, clean and perfect for our group. You can tell there have been upgrades done to the unit and it was comfortable and well stocked for cooking. The king bed in the master was wonderful. We really enjoyed the enclosed back deck. I would definitely stay here again!

The area of Turtle Bay was super nice, had a lot of nice amenities. Nice amount of beach items for our use. The condo was extremely hard to get into with the key pad, called manager and he was able to give better instructions. No A/C in the loft made for a stuffy stay for the kids. They had fans but it wasn't enough. It states in the description that there is A/C in the loft. Called manager and he said nothing he could do because the condo association wants them to replace it with a $30,000 central air unit.. He also went on to say that is why their price is lower than other condos in the area. The pictures of the living area are not accurate, no dining table or 2 couches. It is an Island with 3 seats. Small couch and 2 chairs. Certainly would not stay here again.

We loved the proximity to Turtle Bay for a conference I was attending, the beautiful north shore views and walks/hikes and the easy access to the beach. The condo was a little less fresh than pictured as far as older paint in the bathroom and some mildew in the shower, but nothing too bothersome. The owner offered a small credit due to my comment on the shower tile. Other details were very nice: we appreciated the air conditioning in the bedroom (didn’t need the living room unit due to trade winds), the heated pool just across the drive, and the fully-equipped kitchen. I liked the modern island decor and the mattress was quite comfortable.

This place was absolutely perfect for our family. It had everything you could imagine and then some. Perfect location especially if you want to spend your time in the North Shore area like we did. Great views on the golf course and quick access to the pool. We will definitely try to book here again!

We stayed at Swaying Palms on this, our first trip to Hawaii. We are not into city busyness, and loved the nature trails, easy access to quiet beaches and just relaxing in the condo. It was a short trip to the Polynesian Cultural Center, and that day was just lovely. Judy is a perfect host. She stopped by to say 'hello' after asking permission, and always responded promptly to queries whether they were important or not. Our US SIM card didn't handle messages properly and Judy had to go out of her way to get our gate pass working properly.Thank you! We'd recommend Swaying Palms to anyone.

The location was perfect, the complex is quiet and beautiful, the unit was perfect for 4 adults and a child. We had plenty of towels and the kitchen had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and everything was extremely clean, and I’m really picky about that. The manager was informative, friendly and responsive. The only bad thing was that we had to leave…😢 We will definitely be planning another trip to the North Shore and wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else.

The property description, although technically correct, is very misleading. As others have stated, this was a one bedroom 1.5 bathroom single unit condo, which was renovated to add an additional exterior door and a bed was put in the living room/kitchen area. The listing makes it seem like you would be getting two traditional condos. It's in a good location on the north shore, though it’s still a ten minute walk from the Turtle Bay Hotel. And it didn’t seem to be affiliated in any way with the Hotel and their amenities. The cleanliness was just OK. Under the bed was dusty. It’s in the first floor and the upstairs condo had people who were loud and insulation between the floors was minimal (hard to control that). Pillows were a little flat/old. I had to initiate the communication with property management for arrival information. Response was prompt and sufficient.

We loved staying here in our four-night stay on the North Shore. Was very close to the Turtle Bay Resort. The condo was very nice and we enjoyed it very much. Thank you!

We loved our stay!!! I am surprised it was as reasonably priced as it was. The condo was comfortable and well decorated. Being clean is a big deal to me and it was very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a few spices and oil! We appreciated the beach gear. The property management company gave better directions than any other vacation home I have ever stayed at. The one little issue (a broken remote control) we had they responded to right away and fixed in a reasonable amount of time. Eat at 7 Brothers and checkout Kawela Bay beach nearby. Mahalo!!!

Super cute condo that is both beautiful and practical! Owners did a great job making the most of the space with thoughtful planning. We loved the L shaped couch that created a space for both our girls to have their own sleeping space and loved the (custom?) built in and breakfast bar attached. Bathroom was super practical with ample room for toiletries under the sink and hangers for each of our towels. The 1 bedroom was huge and the bed was comfortable. A larger family with small kids could have fit a blow up mattress or pack and play. I also liked the extra chairs by the Slider to curl up and read-but wish it had a side table so I could set my drink down. We also liked the small touches such as the beach towels, beach chairs, line to dry bathing suits, relaxing & private lanai, and strategic light placement throughout the condo (even nightlights). A small inconvenience was the TVs in both the living and bedroom had challenges. The directions on the guide seemed outdated and didn’t align with the buttons on the remote/streaming went in and out and the TV in the bedroom would not turn on all together. The host offered to have it looked at But never followed up after I provided times that would work. This small issue still wouldn't have deterred us from booking again though. For the price, space, and location-its well worth it!

Easy check-in and check-out. Clean, well-stocked, and has a great view. We had a lot of room for 6 people. The backyard was awesome. The kids love playing on the golf course. Easy walk to the beach. Our Grandkids loved the loft. Loved the welcome box of chocolates! The shower had great water pressure. We had a lot of beach towels and a lot of beach toys. This was a wonderful and enjoyable stay. Would stay here again.

Excellent property and great hosts. It was a pleasure to deal with them and their local property manager Bev. The condo was clean, well-equipped and stocked with basic supplies. We enjoyed our time there and booked another stay in the fall.

We loved this place! It’s in great location- you can dine/walk among Turtle Bay, enjoying the crowds, or enjoy quiet in the condo. Close to Kahuku, which is fun too. Condo is not fancy, but perfect -great layout, nice, new, plentiful towels, bedding, and kitchen has everything you’d ever need on vacation. Nice, responsive mgt team as well. Would def recommend!

We booked for a week in March and really enjoyed our stay. The unit had many things we weren't expecting, like extra toilet paper, dishwasher and laundry soap, coffee filters, some seasonings and condiments. The kitchen had a rice cooker, dishes, plenty of pots and pans. They had many towels, beach chairs and an umbrella available for use. The beds were comfy, furniture had been updated. Only note was some minor cosmetic damage, ie paint chips on some of the walls/baseboards and doors. Also the area was really great, close to many beaches! We would definitely stay again.

My family & I would definitely stay here again. Great spot, the loft was perfect for the kids, nice & warm pool just steps away, beach 5 minute walk, awesome all around! Only very minor issue was the need to stop at the owner’s property 10 minutes away to pick up (& drop off) the access card to get into the parking lot.

April 2024

The location was great for exploring the North Shore and spending time on the Turtle Bay beach/grounds. Nice trails near the beach. The unit was very homey feeling, nice lanai with views of the golf course. The beach chairs are all rusted and almost unusable. The condo was clean upon arrival but throughout our stay there were pests; a lizard, millipede and unfortunately a roach in the upstairs bathroom on our last night there. Only disclosing this in case this is a deal breaker for you. If they could seal up the windows properly and address the issue this place would be perfect. The A/C units upstairs and in the primary room downstairs don’t work. It does feel at least 10 degrees warmer in those rooms. Minimal communication from hosts. No response to my questions that I sent before checking in.
