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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Good location, quiet, nice pool

  • 4 of 5

Our family that included kids 12 & 14 yrs enjoyed our 6 nights. We really weren't in the condo much. Nice location and quiet. You do face the golf course, with the Highway in the distance. The pool & tennis court are super close. The pool was a nice place to socialize with other guests. The pool does get deep quickly (6-8 feet), so there's a small area that's ok for young kids with floatation devices. The briquette BBQs at the pool are not in great condition (we didn't use them) and there's little lighting at night to cook and should just be replaced with propane BBQs - this of course has nothing to do with the condo itself.

The condo has everything you'd need to cook and included some toys, beach shoes, snorkel stuff, chairs, umbrellas, styrofoam cooler. Did find the lanai a bit crowded with all the stuff on it, but really there's nowhere else to store it. The flooring is nice throughout the condo, even on the enclosed lanai. As mentioned in previous reviews, the loft was uncomfortably hot, even though we did everything suggested to keep it cool. The main floor and bedroom do cool down nicely once the air conditioning is on. We also found the furniture to be quite crowded, even though it is exactly as pictured, it's different when you're actually living in it. The couches are uncomfortable, as there is plywood under the cushions (even on the ottoman), but again, we tried not to be there much.

The Turtle Bay Beach Resort is just a few minute walk away and we honestly don't know why people would stay there - the condo is way better. We found the Turtle Bay Beach very disappointing and terribly crowded (we had just spent the week previous in Kailua, which has an amazing beach), however, there is another "Hidden Beach" that is a short walk away through some paths that was wonderful. Waimea Beach was great for boogie boarding and the kids jumped from the rock and snorkeled with the turtles. Waimea Valley/Falls were also nice to walk through. We did pretty much all the touristy stuff suggested and enjoyed everything.

For the golfers, be sure to check the deals after 2pm. My son played free with my husband.

Certainly a good value to stay in the condo and use it as your home base for touring around.

Perfect condo for a family with kids

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect condo for my 2 kids and I. The condo was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. It felt like home right when we walked in. Checking in was smooth and easy and the instructions provided were spot on. Plenty of beach and pool toys for the kids and the covered lanai was the perfect place for morning coffee and breakfast. Condo pool area is steps away from the front door and comes with plenty of chairs, tables and bbq area. Property owner was great to work with and very accommodating. My daughter got sick at the end of our stay and they didn’t hesitate to give s a late checkout so she could ge some additional rest. I would definitely stay here again.

Cute but not luxury

  • 3 of 5

There are a lot of adjectives that would suit this place--cute, rustic, beach-chic, convenient--but luxury is a little misleading. The location of this place is fantastic--close to the Turtle Bay resort and its shoreline, and convenient to shopping and eating in the north shore. The enclosed deck was a nice feature, and we had breakfast and lunch out there daily.

But there were some weird things, like all the furniture in the main room--there's a lot! It made things a little cramped. And although there are lots of beds, I wouldn't have a party of six stay here; it would be awfully crowded, plus the twin beds in the loft were pretty uncomfortable. (And, weirdly, didn't have sheets that fit, so I ended up in a wad every morning from rolling around.) Though the place is clean, it's dated, and perfectly nice for a beach vacation, but not really luxurious.

Also, I was disappointed that when I accidentally left a personal item and contacted the owner about it, they never responded. I didn't fully expect them to mail my item to me (even though I said I'd pay for the shipping), but a response would've been nice.

Owner's Response: Aloha Jamey, I wanted to update you regarding the item you left behind in the freezer. After we discussed the issue the day you checked out; I asked the housekeeper, to mail your items and charge you for the postage and any trip fees as you requested. The housekeeper said he contacted and mailed it to you at the lowest postage rate on March 1st, the charge was $6.00. He said there was no charge for the trip or postage fees because it was on his way and the amount was so little. You should receive it soon. Also, regarding that rather unfair review of my condo: Our prices are obviously not the upscale luxury pricing at the Turtle Bay Resort; but a very fair good price,, as you know because you booked it. The large majority of my guests enjoy staying in our condo and think is a very fine value for their family vacations. The photos show exactly what is in the condo, furniture and all.
