Property description

Our stylish and generously outfitted Bird of Paradise, at $185 per night, is located within the Kuilima Estates West, on the Turtle Bay Resort, at a convenient walk to its restaurants, pro shop, and most importantly GOLF and BEACH. The lofted condo provides peace and privacy for up to FIVE guests. Abundant guest parking, pools, barbecue area and tennis courts are ammenities of this gated community.

MAJOR FEATURES: Our ocean-facing condo is a delightful alternative to Waikiki. Located on the “Gold Coast” of Oahu's storied North Shore, our unit is exceptional among the Kuilima Estates West properties.
• Unobstructed views of golf course, beach and surf beyond from full lanai
• Spacious loft offers better privacy and airy, on-shore tradewinds
• No occupants below unit
• No-drive stay: the beach, pro shop, stables, tennis, spa and restaurants are a flower-lined stroll away.
• Internet access, Wifi, Ethernet cable
• Rain or Shine entertainment: 2 flat-screen TVs, gear for tennis, snorkeling, boogie boarding, picknicking, men's & women's golf, board games, and dozens of DVDs and CDs.

CONDO DETAILS: The first floor is with tile, carpet, and new bamboo flooring. This lovely second floor unit includes a master bedroom and a second bedroom in the cosy loft. The veranda looks out onto the 1st fairway of the Fazio Golf Course and other greens and fairways beyond. The ocean surf peeks through native trees that are growing providing more ocean views along the white-sand beach lining the shore. It’s a great location that catches the trade winds that cool the unit naturally, but also has ceiling fans and an air conditioner for less breezy days. Recent remodelling throughout include all new appliances and HD flat-screen TVs -- one 54” in the living room and a 32” in the master bedroom, with a clever built-in DVD player. The bathroom is a tub and shower combo. The master bedroom has a king-size bed; a queen-size bed is in the loft, and there is ample space for a crib. There is one assigned parking, plus numerous stalls for guests. Cable television service, internet access, wireless, and a CD music player are included. On the veranda which is fully screened, an elegant dining set offers great views of the landscape. Sports gear on the veranda is at your disposal during your stay. A washer and dryer, dishwasher, hair dryer, and many kitchen accoutrements are supplied for your convenience.

NEED MORE SPACE TO STAY? Our condo supports upwards of 5, and it possible to book with other neighboring condos close to our condo.

RESORT GROUNDS: Located in a lush, gated tropical setting alive with areca palms, frangipane flower trees, and hibiscus, this condo unit is within walking distance to many attractions accessible to you: fine dining, a day spa, kayak tours, hula dancing, luau feasts, access to a second golf course (the famous Palmer Championship course), helicopter tours, horse back riding, surfing lessons, a safe swimming beach, biking, miles of walking trails, beachcombing, safe snorkeling on a coral reef, or just relaxing.

NORTH SHORE SHOPPING AND ATTRACTIONS: Two large supermarkets are a few miles away by car. Ten minutes away are several famous surfing spots including the Banzai Pipeline, Sunset Beach, Ehukai, and Waimea Bay. The spectacular Waimea Botanical Gardens and Falls are adjacent to the Bay. Old Town Haleiwa (including quaint shops, world-famous Matsumoto's Shave Ice, art galleries, restaurants), beaches and the boat harbor is 20 minutes west where you can visit farmer's markets, sport fishing opportunities, and guided tours that include swimming with sharks. Further west are skydiving and glider rides available at Dillingham Airfield for the X-venturous! To the south other attractions include local Kahuku garlic shrimp vendors, Laie Point lookout, Polynesian Cultural Center, Kahana Bay State Park, Kualoa Beach and Ranch, and Kaneohe’s ancient fishponds.

KAWELA BAY: Also called Paradise Beach, is a true hideaway just west of the Resort from the stables. This spectacular bay on State conservation land, has a calm-water beach that it partly shaded by towering pines.

Car: Necessary

Turtle Bay is at the northern tip of the island of Oahu and is the farthest destination on the island from crowded Honolulu, Waikiki and remaining sub-cities to the south. It is the only resort situated in a windward rural area on the island. If you enjoy soft evening breezes, clean air, and dark quiet nights, then Turtle Bay is the best destination for visitors. The 3 nearest towns, Kahuku and Laie to the south and Pupukea-Haleiwa to the west, are quaint and popular destinations for both locals and visitors. There is a hospital at Kahuku.

The region is blessed with healthy pristine trade-winds during most of the year which keeps the region cool and lush from intermittent rain showers. Turlte Bay is at the northern tip of the island, adjacent to the North Shore to the west and the 'windward side' to the east which stretches from Kahuku at the northeast end, and Waimanalo at the southeast end of the coast. There are many parks, the best beaches and beach parks, botanical gardens, a few small restaurants and shopping centers and mostly small villages along the coast. Kaneone is the largest town along the northest coast, about 25 miles south of Turtle Bay. Other natural attractions are the ancient fishponds of Kaneohe Bay and the only offshore barrier reef and lagoon in Hawaii with many beach parks and opportunities for boating, glass-bottom boat, fishing, diving, opportunities. Kaneohe has a large mall with movie theaters, and a community college. Another college is located at Laie near the Polynesian Cultural Center, a major tourist attraction about 5 miles southeast from Turtle Bay. Another nearby popular attraction is a breathtaking view of windward coast from Laie Point.

Neighboring Kawela Bay to the west of Turtle Bay is a spectacular secluded beach surrounded by rain forests known locally as 'Paradise Beach'. It can be reached by car across Kam highway opposite the fruit stands just west of the Turtle Bay resort. Kawela Beach can also be reached by walking west along the coast from Turtle Bay. Further west is Pupukea which supports the most popular and safe snorkeling site, 'Sharks Cove Marine Life Conservation District' with spectacular reef fish and corals. Further west is the world reknown professional surf sites at Bonzai Pipeline (Ehukai), Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay. Waimea Falls Park is a popular botanical garden across the hghway from Waimea Bay. Futher west are additional famous surf sites including Chuns Reef to the west. Further west is Haleiwa Town, a meccca for artisans, surfers, divers, farmers, and related fruit stands, boutiques, surf-dive shops, other quaint shops, several restaurants, a famous bridge, a few shopping malls, several beach parks, and one protected small boat harbor which supports diving and sport fishing opportunities. World famous Haleiwa shave ice is also available at several stores in the middle of the town.

Turtle Bay Resort not only supports two large gated residental communities but a five-star hotel with all the major associated ammenities, including massage and hair parlors, restaurants, spas, saunas, swimming pools, beaches, volleyball, safe swimming areas etc. Horse-back riding, tennis, and golf are available there with a 10 minute walk. Visitors can rent bicycles and rent or use our snorkeling gear in the condo and otherwise explore the many beaches and paths within the resort and beyond for many miles in both directions along the coast.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: Dr. Maragos is a pioneer of coral reef conservation, and his wife, Diane, an artist and Hawaiian language book producer. We enjoy relaxing at this property when we have a little time off.

Why Kahuku, HI, USA:
This is our refuge from the tension of Waikiki and Honolulu. Nothing we have experienced compares to the sheer force of a North Shore wave, especially during the Winter. It's easy to fall under their spell. My wife designed the unit to reflect the same standards of taste that she uses in our home: the sheets, towels, kitchenware and ammenities are top quality, and she and our cleaning staff work attentively to ensure that everything is in order for our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo has two bedrooms: a king bed, a queen bed, and a pull-out sofa bed. Our condo borders a golf fairway and with great views of the golf course and a window of the beach and ocean beyond. As an upstairs unit with a loft, there is better privacy, security, views, and ventilation from onshore trade winds. It is located far away from the highway and resort noise. When the windows are opened, the onshore breezes are sufficient to cool the condo. In fact, we owners have never found the need to use the AC. The condo has 2 HD TVs & 2 DVD players, DVDs, cable TV, internet access, wifi, a full kitchen with new appliances. We constantly make upgrades. Sports gear includes boogie boards, men & women golf clubs, tennis rackets, beach chairs, and several snorkeling sets and beach towels. We love our condo because it is quiet, our view, our access to many fun things to do, only minutes away.
