Perfect location! Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot for our family vacation! There were 11 of us including 4 children and we had plenty of room. The house came with everything we needed. The location is perfect! Haliewa is just down the road with a ton of dining and some small shops. When I read other reviews I didn't know how great Haliewa was but now it's one of my favorite Hawaiian towns. The little private beach right next to the house is great and every night we would go out in the back and enjoy a beautiful sunset. We spotted some whales swimming by one day and lots of sea turtles were swimming in the cove out front. I looked at a lot of other properties on the island and this one is really in one of the best spots on the island!

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home with our family. All 10 of us had plenty of room to spread out or hang out together inside, outside or down on the little beach right next door. We enjoyed checking out the tidepools right below the house. We even saw turtles in the tidepools and humpbacks in the distance. The sunsets were amazing every night! We got lucky and had three days of perfect surf. We were extremely lucky to be on the North Shore for the Da Hui backdoor shootout at Pipeline. The surf was huge! We felt like we really got a good sampling of all the North Shore has to offer. We shopped at the local market for food and had most meals at "home". This house was perfect for hanging out playing cards or finding a cozy spot to do a little reading. We all enjoyed the location and came home feeling relaxed. The North Shore is perfect for a low key get away. We hope to return to this lovely home in the future.

Marvelous. Simply marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

5-nights at Turtle Cove was a gift from my students' families. My wife and I invited 3 other couples to join us, and to say we had a wonderful stay is an understatement. We're all local -- one of our number was born and raised on the North Shore -- and we've been the the North Shore many, many times, and yet: what a wonderful stay! Nothing's too terribly far from anywhere on the North Shore, so the location is "perfect." More than perfect is the view from the house. Ahh! We were there during the swell just before the 2016 Eddie, and the 30-, 40-, 50-foot waves were something to behold! Our local contact, Craig, was polite and responsive to our minor needs, as in the dishwasher didn't work and before we knew it a plumber was out and fixed it in a jiffy. We enjoyed it so much we're thinking of pooling our funds and heading up again in the not-too-distant future. Can't imagine a better place to hang out on the North Shore.

50th Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took both of our sons and their families to this beautiful house to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and we were thrilled with the layout and provisions provided. There were 11 of us - 6 adults and 5 children ages 7 - 18 and plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. We cooked in most every meal and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Having our own private beach right in front was a real bonus. When tide was out there were tide pools to explore and plenty of beach space for the grandsons to practice Lacrosse. Swimming and snorkeling right out front was an extra bonus - turtles to swim with, beautiful fish to see and amazing sunsets every night. Thank you for making this house a perfect place to vacation.

Our best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent a week at this wonderful house and location. It was a perfect place for our family reunion, 6 adults and 6 children, ages 3-11. Our two children and their families joined us.

The layout of the home with the 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms made our stay so comfortable and provided ample space for our group. It’s a beautiful home and the view was spectacular. The beach in front of the house provided hours of enjoyment and the tide pools at low tide offered lots of fun to see the sealife. We stocked up at Costco and ate all our meals on the property. The kitchen area was superb.

We all agreed that this was the best vacation ever. Would love to return!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Turtle Cove was truly paradise found for us. What a perfect location for our dream vacation. There were a total of 9 adults in our group, we never felt crowded and the privacy was delightful. The home is in great condition (true to the pics listed) and wonderfully decorated. Guests comfort and needs are thoughtfully addressed in the home's amenities. As for the location, we loved waking up to walk the beach for shells, snorkel during the morning low tide, swim with the turtles in the afternoon and fall asleep to the sound of the ocean outside our open windows. Hale'iwa is the most quaint surfing town, we had delicious meals there and enjoyed some great shopping for local art. It was delightful to know that we could take a day to travel to the popular tourist spots and then return to our peaceful paradise nestled on the North Shore. We loved Turtle Cove so much, we moved coming back to the top of our bucket list and have put our other vacation destinations on the back burner. Looks like we're going to work on making this an annual event!
