West Oahu Beauty
"I stayed in this beautiful condo for the entire month of April and loved every minute of it. The condo itself is nicely set up and has everything you need. It was recently remodeled so everything is newer and in working order. Considering it is on the beach, i found the condo to be clean with hardly any bugs. I am a clean freak and even after cleaning up, by the end of the day with the wind and the sand there would be dust on the counters (which is normal in Hawaii). So i think some of the other reviews were maybe from folks that are not used to being in a beach environment. What sets this place apart is the beach. You step right out the door onto the beach! The beach itself is one of the best on Oahu. It is kind of tucked away, so there are never many people and is very clean (please help keep it that way). At night you can hear and when the swell is big feel the waves. I was lucky enough to see turtles, fish, outrigger canoes races and whales right from the lani. The sunsets are amazing. West Oahu is a treat to be hold. It's not Honolulu (thank god); more like Hawaii 40 or 50 years ago. If you show the locals respect, you get it back in spades (remember it is their islands). I surfed and bodyboarded with Dino and Nate, the local boys on the beach. If you say hello, they welcome you right in. The owner of the condo was great to deal with. Because i was there for work she was more than willing to work with me on having items shipped to myself. The next time I am on Oahu, I will be looking to see if this condo is available. Thak you for letting me stay!

"The Turtle house was an amazing place for the purpose of our trip! I had the privilege of guiding 10 teacher candidates to work on the Waianae Schools for the month of January. The house could not have been a more perfect location for our needs. Rita and Bob were the consummate hosts, Heidi responded to our every email and request and worked with us on our billing and Debi was simply incredible and welcoming upon our arrival, all of them providing us with the Aloha Spirit!
During our month of service and learning, we had the opportunity to get to know our neighbors, the community and the surrounding area. We even danced a little to a luau (wedding) happing two doors down, and were even invited to join them! We never once felt unsafe, and marveled at the beautiful surroundings! Hey, what college student wouldn’t want a classroom setting to be in Hawaii’s beautiful surroundings! We made it a point to become a part of the community, and not just a visitor!
We ventured out to various points on the island, and always looked forward to our rest time at the house. How could you not with countless numbers of whales breaching daily, turtles swimming outside the back lawn, and of course the Turtle Bar to play music and unwind after a long day in the schools! We hope to make this our home away from home for many years to come, as we strengthen our relationship with the Waianae Schools and help the district to grow local teachers who will return to the community to teach for a lifetime!
Aloha and Mahalo!"

"Great studio & great hosts. The bed was super comfy. The place was quiet. The hosts had everything we needed. Beach chairs, snorkels, towels even a kayak & beach toys for kids. The beach was quiet & had lifeguards. We will be back"

Best way to explore Oahu, enjoy the beach, learn body-boarding - all without breaking the bank!
"This side of the island has great beaches without the crowds. The closest beach was great: Waves big enough to bodyboard, but not too scary for my 8 and 10 year olds to go swimming. The apartment is in a gated community with friendly staff."
