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 Jill Paulin

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.

Why Jill Paulin 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!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how wonderful this location was and how great Jill is to work with.

My daughter and I wanted more of a local feel with our vacation and that is why we decided to stay on the North Shore. I am so pleased we chose to stay at this awesome condo! We felt right at home.

During our stay (Late November) we rarely used the air conditioning since we could open the front door and the sliding door and the breeze was more than enough to keep us cool. The condo is extremely clean and well kept.

You will receive a detailed packet of information from Jill prior to your stay and it is VERY useful. She provided a list of activities and stores. When we followed what she said, we had a great time.

This condo is definitely somewhere we will go back to in the future!

Mahalo for the memories!

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here. It was perfect for our family of four. Very close to Turtle Bay (walking distance) or a short drive. Jill provided great, detailed advice about what to do, see, eat, etc. The condo was very clean and updated. The pool area was clean and quiet. Really appreciated the washer and dryer. Highly recommend.

Turtle Bay Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Jill's place for a week vacation with our infant (10 weeks) son, and it did not disappoint in the least! We are a huge fan of the North Shore and generally stay at Turtle Bay Hotel; however, we were looking for roomier accommodations given our extended stay and expanding family.

Jill was easy to get a hold of via phone/text. Check-in was seamless. The condo was clean, beautifully decorated, has updated amenities (laundry, kitchen and bathroom) and is located in a quiet, lush area of Turtle Bay. Cable and internet worked without issue. There is a great breeze throughout the day; however, if you needed AC, there is a unit for use. Parking was also convenient. As an added bonus, anything you needed for the beach, Jill had provided- beach chairs, towels, umbrella etc. This was such a huge help!

With regards to location, it is about a 10 minute walk to Turtle Bay Hotel and beaches, which is super convenient.

Do yourself a favor and book this listing if you are trying to find a place on North Shore. You will be so happy you did.

We had a great trip to North Shore and a fabulous condo meeting our every need. Close walking distance to Turtle Bay and a great pool just steps away. The detailed instructions were great and any questions we had were answered in the provided information packet. The owner is wonderful and responds to all communications quickly. I highly recommend this condo!
