Calling all visitors, sunbathers and adventurers, come to the North Shore of Oahu and enjoy our newly renovated condo. We call it the Punahele Hale, meaning “favorite house” in Hawaiian.
This unit has 1 bedroom and 2 full baths, is on the ground level at Kuilima Estates East, and is a short walk from Turtle Bay Resort on the ocean. The kitchen is open to the living area, and has new stainless appliances, granite counters, and new cabinets. You can do as much cooking or as little as you like. The condo boasts a sunny living room with a queen size Murphy Bed that sleeps 2. The living area opens to a grassy area with a peaceful view of the exquisitely groomed acreage at Kuilima Estates. The bedroom has a comfortable king size bed with an air conditioning unit, and has its own private bathroom with shower. The hall bathroom has a tub and shower combined. The condo is close to the ocean, the community swimming pool, tennis courts, and 2 golf courses (George Fazio, and Arnold Palmer designs). The condo is also within walking distance to 3 nice restaurants, and a 10 minute drive to Foodland grocery stores. The stores are easy to find, whether you choose to wander right or left out of our community.
The North Shore of Oahu is endless fun. During the summer snorkeling at Turtle Bay and Shark’s Cove or swimming at Waimea Bay, top the lists of enjoyment for visitors. In the winter the waves at Sunset Beach and Pipeline are world renown for surfing. Old Haleiwa Town is a short distance, and has shops, restaurants, and loads of Hawaiian flavor. After a busy day exploring the area, walk down to the beach at Turtle Bay Resort for your favorite beverage, and catch the setting sun as it falls into the Pacific Ocean.
This unit has it all, and the North Shore of Oahu cannot be beat. Come and enjoy. Kuilima Estates East no ka ‘oi.

A gem of a place
Beautiful place and worked extremely well with our two kids. We arrived late at night and the check in could not have been easier; the security guard will initially let you into the complex and there is a door code/fob to get you in and out for the rest of the stay (check out was just as easy). The place was extremely clean and had all the amenities you could want; beach towels, snorkeling gear, washer/dryer, well stocked kitchen, pool access and etc. The condo complex is quiet and peaceful and located in a very beautiful part of the North Shore. An added benefit is the Turtle Bay resort being a very short walk away where there is a beautiful kid friendly beach. Other activities/amenities were easily accessible with great surfing beaches, many restaurants, historic Haleiwa town a close drive away. We really could not have asked for a better place - we all had a blast. Lastly, Bitsy (the property manager) was amazing start to finish and very responsive - thanks again for everything Bitsy!!
Perfect home in a slice of Heaven
I mean, it's the beautiful and calming Turtle Bay! What could POSSIBLY be bad about anywhere here? But, really, this condo was absolutely 5/5 for the price, the size and the description. It is totally as advertised and even better than that, I would say.
The lanai has been built out so there is excellent space for living, and the ground floor lawn gives plenty of room for free-range kids to roam. The decor is updated and the unit was CLEAN. The beads were comfortable, there is a pack and play (with space in the Master for it), hidden kids books and colouring books (mine always like "new to them"), a WELL stocked kitchen (with some spices). We left behind charcoal for the grills - but grab a bag anyway if you have the patience. The shower pressure is excellent, the pots and pans are great.
Bitsy was amazing and really helpful with questions!
Things to note (but do not detract)
1) The complex isn't the most "walkable" INSIDE - the sidewalks all lead to the parking lot, SO, to get out (to the hotel), you do have to walk through the car gate (or cut across someone's yard) Be forewarned your preschooler will want to step on the tire spikes. ;)
2) There is a shower at the pool (which we found on the last day) and a hose out the lanai - find them first to get rid of the pesky sand!
3)Lei Lei's is pretty good - not the greatest food, but a wonderful space, particularly for kids.
4) The Turtle Bay Resort is a 5 minute walk and really has the perfect kid beach - use it! Get there by 10am to get the shade under the one tree.
5) The couch is a pull out!
Have fun, this was an amazing tropical locale!
The location was nice
The AC did not work. No one could be reach ck was full and no response via email. Upper unit was up late into early morning and very loud. Picking up keys and returning was inconvenient and should of been shared beforehand. We had to go out of our way back to Waikiki. If you want to bbq you need charcoal, bring tennis rackets if you want to play and if want to cook very little basic available ie olive oil. The pool area was nice during the day. At dusk 3 men take over the table and bbq.
I was at the condo the day of arrival and the AC was on--it seemed OK to me but we bought a new one anyway as we want our guests to be happy!
We now have a brand new AC.
I communicated with this guest and discussed all issues. I did not find any emails that had been sent, but my voice mail was full one day and I corrected that as soon as I found out.
Regarding the upstairs vacationers, future guests can call the guards anytime there is any noise and they will go speak with them.
There are 2 pools, so if one grill is in use you can use the other one.
Please know that we pride ourselves on having a clean and comfortable condo for guests .
Please feel free to contact me with any questions if you are considering renting this condo.
The condo was very clean and had all the items we needed and more. The kitchen was very well stocked including storage containers and some spices. There were beach chairs, beach towels and a boogie board for use. The location was great for us and it was easy to access the cove at Turtle Bay and all the North Shore areas. The complex was quiet and other residents/visitors were respectful of this. The only downside was that the BBQ’s are charcoal and not propane so we didn’t use them. The manager was very easy to communicate with and was responsive to messages. If you want to stay in the North Shore area, I would recommend Punahele Hale.
Very Hawaiian and homey.
We enjoyed the location and the accommodations. The unit was quite spacious , clean and well stocked. We made use of the Beach chairs on our outings. It was very enjoyable to wake up to the birds chirping outside our bedroom. 😊
Just what we were looking for!
This is a wonderful, clean, and well-kept condo. It's just off Turtle Bay Resort in a quiet gated neighborhood. The kitchen was well stocked including a coffee pot, blender, pots and pans, and even some plastic containers for leftovers (and a couple wine and bottle openers). It was so nice to be able to cook breakfast every day and even did a couple of dinners at the condo (though all the restaurants at Turtle Bay are delish so we ate there a lot!). Also having the washer and dryer for a longer stay was really nice (or even just to dry out our swimsuits once too). Despite some earlier reviews, we had no issues with the washer/dryer, but I would recommend running the washer while you're out only because it's in the hall right off the kitchen/living room so you can hear it but it's no louder than my machine back home.
The king bed is super comfy and they supply lots of bedding including extra pillows, sheets, and blankets. It was cool enough during our visit that we didn't run the a/c at all, just the overhead fan. There are lots of regular towels as well as a stack of beach towels. We really appreciated the beach towels, beach chairs, and body board for taking out to play. There are some board games and puzzles in the entertainment center drawers if you decided to stay in for an evening like we did. Also the pool is just across the street.
Bitsy was easy to communicate with and super helpful with a special request we had. We would not hesitate to rent this place again. It's a perfect home base for anyone wanting a place on the North Shore (and depending on traffic the whole island is accessible in 90 minutes or less from here).
Thank you Casey for your kind words!!! We love having great guests like you. Please come visit again!
We are next to the Turtle Bay Resort, with it's restaurants, beaches, and golf courses. A short drive west will take you to Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay, and the 7 mile miracle strip of the best surf in the USA.
Haleiwa Town is a 20 minute drive. To the east it is a short drive to the Polynesian Cultural Center and BYUH.
