About the property

Spacious One Bedroom/ One Bath Condo in Tropical Setting

The Space

Aloha! Come enjoy your Tropical Hawaiian Vacation in our beautiful completely renovated, clean, spacious and relaxing one bedroom, and one bath condo with all the conveniences of home. Our hideaway is the perfect blend of tropical seclusion amidst all the amenities offered by a world-class resort. The condo is a corner unit, making it more private, and is filled with natural light. You will enjoy the brand new kitchen, bathroom, flooring, home décor and linens. We continue to make improvements and provide most everything you would need to make your stay comfortable.

Imagine lounging on the lanai and enjoying the Hawaiian tropics with a beautiful view of the gardens of the resort. Two brand new AC units will ensure your stay is comfortable, although the mild temperatures, trade winds and first-floor unit helps to keep things cool. For your entertainment, both the living room and bedroom offer new flat screen TV. Cable packages are also ready to go as well as fast, secure Wi-Fi! The condo is close to the complex pool with a BBQ area as well as the tennis courts. The pool is heated to a perfect temperature so you can even enjoy it in the winter evenings while you grill your dinner. The resort has many walking/ hiking trails allowing you to see beautiful Hawaii nature without leaving the area.

Unit Includes:

Free parking (designated spot close to condo)

In-Unit Full-Size Washer/Dryer

Secure, Wireless Internet

Television with Full Cable

Consistently upgraded linens, dishes, sheets, towels, and beach gear (Beach chairs, towels, umbrella, boogie boards and snorkeling gear)

New Pac'n Play that is convertible into a crib (with sheets), as well as a baby dining seat

Interaction with Guests:

I will email you local tips on where to go and what to do/see, which are also included with more information at the condo. My guests say that these local recommendations make the trip much more interesting. As we live in the area, we can also help with any specific activities or advice you might be interested in.

Other Things to Note:

Within a short walk you'll find the immaculate and gorgeous Turtle Bay Hotel, with amazing facilities including five restaurants, horseback riding, 12 miles of walking trails, snorkeling, surfing, scuba, helicopter tours, tennis courts, world-class spa with outdoor massages and 5 miles of great beaches provide you endless opportunities for fun and relaxation. There is a great, year-round beach 5 minutes walk from the condo. With outer reef protection, it is one of the few North Shore beaches that is swimmable year-round, even when waves are huge everywhere else. There is a wonderful, free Luau two nights a week (additional cost for food/drink), and other free entertainment at the Hotel Pool Bar “Hang Ten”. Although the hotel pool is reserved for hotel guests, you can come hang at Hang Ten and catch some amazing surfing while watching the beautiful sunset over the ocean. Golfers appreciate the Palmer Championship Course and the Fazio Course with a 20% discount or minimal cost after 3pm.

The resort is situated on 850 acres, so there is a lot to check-out including hidden beaches, beautiful scenic walks or hikes, whales during that season, quiet places to take a picnic lunch and even rent bikes for the day. The hotel is very open with cool shops and many restaurants. There is even a very casual lobby bar that has great “take-away” salads, sandwiches and other local items for lunch out at the pool or to take to the beach.

In addition to all the activities and amenities of Turtle Bay Resort there are countless activities for the energetic visitor. Exploring the magnificent North Shore beaches, Haleiwa town, Polynesian Cultural Center, as well as fabulous hiking trails including the trail to Waimea Falls and Botanical Gardens. The activities available are endless, from Scuba dives, deep-sea fishing, Shark adventure tours, whale watching (seasonal), or rent surfboards, paddleboards, jet skis, kayaks or snorkel gear. And a short drive to Dillingham Airport offers skydives, ultra light flight tours and glider rides. Mokuleia Beach, the Polo fields, horseback riding and Kaena Point are also nearby

Getting Around:

Renting a vehicle will offer the best versatility when visiting the island, and the drive is beautiful! There is public transportation called "The Bus". There is a bus stop right inside of Turtle Bay. A one-way trip typically runs $2.50. Taxis and UBER currently do not venture to the "country" yet. The airport offers a Speedi Shuttle for a fee of 85 USD and will be faster than The Bus. Reservations are required.

House Rules:

4-person maximum

No smoking anywhere on property

4 night minimum unless shorter window is available (please check)

Discounted rates available for stays longer than 2 weeks. Please inquire.

The condo is within the resort and has access to everything at the hotel, except use of the hotel pool for swimming. The condos have their own pools. You can use the hotel gym/ fitness classes for a nominal fee.

Mahalo nui loa for visiting our site!

About The Owner

I have managed my own properties on the North Shore for over 10 years. You can see from my other property reviews, my guests enjoy the detailed care I give my homes.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why The Owner chose Kahuku

I purchased this property from a friend because I LOVE its light and beautiful lanai view. The previous owner also did a wonderful job with the new kitchen. The floor plan is spacious and it is a wonderful place to vacation!

What makes this condo unique

The condo is on the end so it has more light. It has a very wide open floor plan that is very comfortable. It is located very close to the complex pool which has a very nice grill area too!

This was a great place to stay. Everything was as described and the location was great.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in the North Shore area and this condo was excellent. Everything was as described and more. There was everything from laundry detergent to enough coffee to get us going for a few days. From beach towels to all of the necessary beach equipment we had everything we needed. The condo was clean and well maintained. There were no noisy neighbors and quiet time was respected by all. My wife and I not only recommend this unit but we would rent it again.

clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay the Paulin's condo in Turtle Beach. Very clean and well appointed. We always try to rent a place with a full kitchen to better handle my Daughter's food allergies plus we saved alot of money by eating breakfast in the unit every day. There is a pool across from the unit about the size of a standard backyard in-ground pool. Beach is about a 10 minute walk or you can drive down to the" beach access" parking spots at the turtle beach resort hotel. There were 3 beach chairs, 1 umbrella, 2 snorkel mask sets and 3 sets of flippers in the unit which we used. About 30 minutes from the Polynesian cultural center and the Kualoa ranch which were both great experiences. Turtle beach is 10 minutes away where we saw giant sea turtles on the beach and there are lots of good snorkeling spots and beaches in abundance along the winding ocean road of the north shore. Just 2 things I would caution guests about that we didn't know. I thought we would have use of the resort hotel pool which is quite large but that is reserved for guests of the hotel only. Second, my daughter has a food allergy and my son is a picky eater and we don't eat seafood so we found it difficult to find food that they would or could eat nearby. Most food options are at least 20 minutes by car and more in traffic. Overall I was very happy with the Paulin's condo and it made for a great place to relax after a busy day of activities.

Fantastic find

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves at this spacious and clean rental! Jill was wonderful and very communicative. Was great to have a dedicated parking spot as renting a car was pretty necessary for us (others we were traveling with didn’t have a dedicated spot at their rental). Very easy to access. Close to Turtle Bay hotel and restaurants. Short walk to a quiet beach just on the other side of the golf course or a few more minutes at you’re at Roy’s on the beach and the hotel beach.

House had everything we needed, even fresh ground coffee!

Would definitely stay here again! Thank you Jill and for a wonderful stay!

Excellent location from which to explore the North Shore

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed and comfortable property on Turtle Bay! Had not spent any time in this area before so exploration was top of the list. The property has trails along the ocean which provided good walks in the morning. Huge banyon tree which had been used as a movie locations. Try the Fumi shrimp truck. Fabulous local shrimp!

Lovely spot on North Shore

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed celebrating our 20th anniversary in a serene setting. The condo is just as described and very clean. Owners were easy to work with and attended to our requests immediately. Only negatives, if you have renters above you, as we did for a week with two children, the noise overhead can be very loud, otherwise the condo and complex are quiet. There are no gas BBQ's to use in the complex, so if you want to BBQ you need to buy charcoal and lighter fluid. Bedding and pillows top of the line and that comes from a "pillow snob". Thank you Jill and Daniel and we hope to return.

Excellent place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Jill for making our stay such a great one. The condo was clean, with all modern appliances and bathroom fixtures. There were boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach umbrella, beach towels etc. The bed linens were high quality. This was clearly a place that is well cared for and not a cash cow. Jill was in great contact throughout our 10 days, and provided a binder full of useful information on the area, restaurants, activities etc, along with guide books to look at. If you want a place on the North Shore, this location is ideal as you stay on the Turtle Bay property but don't pay the price of the hotel. For us, having laundry and the ability to make our own food was so valuable.
