About Joel J

I am from San Diego and have dabbled in surfing & volleyball most of my life and currently own a tea company(Pangea Tea Company) in San Clemente. My family enjoys the outdoors.

Joel J purchased this condo in 2006

Why Joel J chose Kahuku

We chose this property because we fell in love with Oahu & it's diversity. The north shore had the most relaxing feel. This particular condo had been totally remodeled by the previous owner who was a wood craftsman. With the intent to live there, he put a lot of care into every detail.

What makes this condo unique

Turtle bay is one of the quietest spots you can stay yet 10 minutes from the whole north shore and all of it's excitement, adventure and fun.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My girl friend and I had the best vacation hugely due to this great condo. It felt like it was our own quiet get a way located at the Turtle Bay Resort in a gated community. I think we will honeymoon there twice a year.

Average place for a good price

  • 3 of 5

Joel has a nice place, functional and in a great location. Easy walk to the Turtle Bay Resort as well as the hiking trails that border the shoreline. We had a great stay, all things considered. We would have liked two things to be different— the previous occupant’s trash removed and the windows overlooking the gorgeous golf course to be cleaned. The thing to remember here is that if you want to pay $300 a night, book a room at Turtle Bay Resort. We didn’t and had a great stay for a lot less money.

FIRST we arrived at the gate to get into the gated community, we did as instructed rang the bell several times and did not get in contact with anyone to let us in. We has a line of cars behind us so we could not even turn around. We called joel a few times, NO answer. Finally the man behind us got out of his car and used his fob to get us through. Joel states that if this happens, to “park and walk, quick walk from the gate”. This is false!

SECOND we finally get to the “villa” and did a quick walk through. This place is definitely not a five star or luxury villa. It seems to be a very old, beat up, not taken care of small apartment.

KITCHEN - The freezer has rust all through out, the fridge was not emptied. The appliances are old and not taken care of.

BATHROOM - very small but yes they probably remodeled a little bit of the tub to use only as a selling point. The walls however has some small holes in it, above the shelling above the toilet was covered with dust and rust.

LIVING ROOM - the walls have crappy patch jobs all around them and the carpets are filthy. The “futon” is very old and beat up. There is a window unit for the AC in this room that does NOT cool down the rental at all, it only seems to work slightly in this room, does not reach the bedroom, very hot. There is a big window in this room hat has three big bees nest on the outside. The "ocean view” is a joke and there is no easy beach access at this spot. There is no way to get outback to even heard to the beach from the back of the rental.

BEDROOM - Heading up the stairs to the bedroom the walls and carpets are destroyed. The bedroom has a fan in it that does NOTHING to keep the upstairs cooled. The ceiling is very very low.The bed it literally on the floor, we pulled the sheets back and looked in the pillowcases and it was just filthy.


We called Joel after this experience and he did not get back to us for a few hours, unfortunately we paid joel over Venom not VRBO. Joel told us to leave keys (next day) & he would crunch numbers to refund us. We paid for 11 days & turned the keys in the next day. We ran “air” over night & did not cool place down. We did not expect a full refund but considering the scam we hoped to attest get 1/2 of our money back. NOPE we got refunded our deposit, (2050 11 days got 295 back). We did not even stay 1night. (Stayed TBR has to pay 2places) Any questions we have photos and videos to back up review!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The property is very cozy homey and warm. Who has a tremendous view especially compared to other units. It’s a great getaway from the city life of Honolulu. Awesome location & gated community. All necessary amenities were provided. Will definitely be staying there again.
