Full service grocery stores, only seven miles from the resort en route from the airport or in close by Laie town are stocked with local tropical fruits, prepared take out, spirits and famous Hawaiian Kona coffee. Local nearby farm stands offer fresh picked papaya, coconut, mango, and avocado. Just pick up a few things for your Hawaiian home away from home. The kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs, or simply enjoy the wonderful restaurants at Turtle Bay Resort. We recommend Lei Lei's and the hotel pool bar for great food, drinks and ambiance.

Our condo is a short walk to Turtle Bay cove's beautiful white sand beach. Relax in the sun, play in the surf, enjoy the sea turtles or participate in the many Turtle Bay Resort activities.

There is no additional resort fee to access the large hotel property, however resort amenities at the hotel have separate costs for the spa, horseback riding, helicopter rides etc. Steps from your condo you can enjoy one of three private pools, tennis courts and BBQ.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Tamara, this is Jorge O. We just got back from Hawaii last night and I wanted to tell you we had a terrific time at your condo on the North Shore. We loved having the pool and tennis courts so close, and our friends' presence at the condo next door helped make for a great getaway. The resort's facilities are first-class, and your suggestions and advice came in very handy as we enjoyed much of what that part of Oahu has to offer. Thanks again for a fantastic time!

We were well served by Tamara who communicated so well when we booked; including directions, codes, car parks, where to go, what to do, a primer on Hawaiin language - you name it. Payment was so easy and when the four of us arrived it was exactly as represented. The location was before the resort hotel site but all facilities were available to us and we made use of them all - pools, live music, shops, beaches and bars. The condo was very clean, well-equipped and there were provisions on hand with the understanding that we could also leave what we didn't consume. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained with excellent security. The whole area was quiet, peaceful and populated by interesting birds. We loved it!

Perfect location for the activities we planned to do.

  • 4 of 5

The unit was clean and easy to find. The furniture and baths could use updating but that is probably why the price was so reasonable. The loft was perfect for our two teenagers. We had happy hour and dinner at the resort a few times but did not use the beaches or other amenities. We spent our time traveling all over the island hiking (lighthouse and Diamond Head) checking out waterfalls (Waimea and Manoa) gardens and beaches and snorkeling (Sharks beach and Waimea park) the teens also found a few places for big jumps into water...

The location is great if you want to explore the island or simply stay put.

The kitchen was equipped enough to make pancakes every morning and we dined at Lei Leis and Roy’s at the resort, 7Brothers (up the road) Giovanni’s Shrimp truck, Haleiwa Joe’s, Kono’s Brewery and Lucky Belly in Waikiki. Afternoon snacks were poke bowls from Foodland. We rented snorkel equipment in Haleiwa so did not use the sets in the condo. The beach stuff provided could be updated and is more geared to young children. As an interior decorator, the furniture was dated but durable though the bar takes up too much space on the lanai. The master bedroom (mattress really comfortable) and kitchen are nice and the laundry unit a big plus!

We really had a nice stay, thanks so much!
