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.

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.

This place is just okay, but really needs some serious TLC - owner needs to step up.

  • 2 of 5

To start, we rent a lot of VRBO's and we're not picky travelers.Yet we're kinda baffled by the 4 & 5 star reviews of this unit. It's not horrible, but it really needs some attention & TLC. We really felt that it was below standard and that the owner could easily make some inexpensive, minor fixes so it doesn't feel like you're back in your first college apartment. When you add up the many corners they cut, it gives you the overall feeling that the owner and/or management cares more about going cheap and not so much about the quality of your stay.This unit was not exactly as advertised. It is advertised as "Romantic Villa--Lovely Pond & Ocean View Studio". Upon arrival, we saw a flyer showing that the property is for sale. The flyer reads "Investors special" (we were guessing that was because it needs some work). It really felt like the owners have it for sale and don't want to spend any money on it at this point. Specific points are as follows

- Read the fine print for "peek-a-boo" ocean view

- Lists "custom gourmet kitchen". You can't open the kitchen windows because there's a sign that says don't open the windows because of the fridge (seems like an odd request), which looks too big for the spot it is in. Kitchen is VERY hot due to no ventilation because the AC is in the farthest away corner on the other side of the unit, and remember you can't open the windows to enjoy the wonderful island breeze. Also, the kitchen blinds are shredded with broken strings so they won't roll up to let in any light. So it's quite hot and dark. The light above the black stove top doesn't work - again, dark kitchen. Freezer shelves were rusted (one fell off the first time we opened the door), so I'm skeptical about it being "new".Certain buttons (like the number 3) on the dorm-sized microwave don't work. Also, the spinning plate inside it is missing, so they put in a glass pie dish to get around replacing it. Coffee maker is a cheap hotel room style (2 cup). Cookware, bad knives, and utensils were what one would expect to take camping. There is not one thing in the kitchen, from the appliances to the utensils, that is even close to being gourmet. Again, camping comes to mind. We felt the kitchen supplies were very limited (no frying pan?!); this would be an easy & affordable upgrade.

- Tower fan in loft was missing the screws to attach it to its base, so it was just propped up in the corner.

Lastly, management was unresponsive to simple questions about checkout.

Condo has many amenities, with golf course view and a peek a boo view of the ocean, and next to the community pool. Enjoyed walking to the resort and hiking the many trails in the area.

Would caution anyone with physical issues that this may not be the place for them since the bedroom is a loft with a sloped ceiling (bed is low on the floor) & the stairway winds its way to the loft (stairs different sizes).

The location & setting gives this condo a 4 star rating from us.
