Registration #W01109064-01

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.

The location was nice

  • 3 of 5

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.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 4 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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).

Great condo overall

  • 3 of 5

Great condo overall. Good location, the Murphy bed and second bathroom were a plus, clean and well stocked kitchen. Some chairs and a boogie board, would've liked an umbrella, kids toys, and snorkel gear (have been to condos in turtle bay with those things) which we had to buy for ourselves. One complaint is that the necessities weren't well stocked, we had to buy toilet paper and dishwasher soap as what was supplied was minimal. Upstairs neighbours were also loud at times but that's the luck of the draw as these are all mostly rentals. Finally, would've preferred not to drive up to the realtor's home for key pickup and drop off at it's a bit out of the way. Overall a positive stay, we enjoyed ourselves. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Hi Erica, We are so glad you enjoyed yourself and had a good stay! We do take pride in having a well stocked kitchen and a clean condo. I apologize if the upstairs neighbors were loud--I wish I would have known and I could have called the resident manager and she would take care of it. We don't normally have problems with that. The reason the keys and fob are picked up at a different location is so that you don't have to park on the road and walk in to the condo upon arrival. Thank you for staying with us and please do come again. Aloha Manager
