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.

Jill Paulin purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jill Paulin chose North Shore Oahu

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!

Nice Condo in Turtle Bay Resort

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this condo while visiting friends on the North Shore. It is conveniently located in the Turtle Bay Resort and just a few minutes walk to the hotel and beaches. We also enjoyed the nature trails to the north along the ocean. The condo was clean and well appointed. This is an end unit and was a quiet and peaceful hangout while we were there. Sure beats the cost of staying at the hotel!

Fantastic Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Nice for North shore

  • 4 of 5

I liked that it was air conditioned but I didn't like that they didn't cool well and were window units placed very low to the floor. and that we were discouraged to use them...signs everywhere. The couch was not comfortable and smelled like sweat alittle. Bed was very comfortable and there was a lot of room for clothes. Snorkeling equipment leaked in masks and snorkels but we made the best of it! It was quiet except for a few days with very loud upstairs neighbors. They decided to tear up sidewalks in front of all the buildings for repavement. Not the easiest to get in and out but not the owners fault. Overall, we enjoyed having a "place" with kitchen and place to relax and unwind. Better than a hotel room

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 4 star review. I'm glad you enjoyed the place. As I purchased the condo in 2014, just about everything is new. My guests have not had any complaints about the couch. It is large with good cushions. I checked out the property after your stay and had the couch professionally cleaned. I will make sure to do this more often. I purchase new snorkel equipment, beach chairs, umbrellas and towels often. I'm sorry the snorkel gear didn't work well for you. The condo Association dictates what type and where we can install the AC units. I've stayed in the unit and think the placement of being at opposite ends of the condo creates a nice, cool environment. I have a note by each unit asking my guests to conserve if possible and not leave the AC on when away from the unit. Electricity is 4 times the national average here in Hawaii, so we all do our best to conserve. I also want my guests to have the real "Hawaii" experience of smelling the flowers, hearing the birds and not being stuck inside with AC all day. I hope you and those reading this understand. Aloha ~

Owner's Response: We loved having you at our place. I'm glad you mentioned the trails at the resort. Being able to explore in the tropical, tree-covered paths is an experience unlike most resorts on the islands. Come back soon!

A Perfect Getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 glorious days in this one-bedroom, one-bath, fully equipped kitchen, livingroom area, front-load washer and dryer, and screened-in patio. Surprisingly, it seemed very spacious for a condo; I didn't get that claustrophobic effect. In fact, beside our welcome note, our hostess left a 7 oz. package of coffee from the Hawaii Coffee Company plus some macadamia nut treats for us to enjoy!!!

We took advantage of the beach chairs, snorkeling equipment and boogie boards provided. In addition, the expandable clothes rack came in very handy to dry wet beach towels and/or clothes that were not conducive for the dryer.

During our stay, the large flatscreen television in the family room literally bit the dust!!! I sent the owner an email early morning. By 4 p.m. the same day, a brand-new replacement television was up and running!!! As a side note, the bedroom also contains a flatscreen television of equal size (which was quite large).

Finally, my review would not be complete without mentioning how comfortable the mattress and hotel-like pillows were - a welcoming pleasure after long but fun-filled days of exploring.

If we were to return to the North Shore, we would definitely consider renting this condo again.

PS Loved being so close to the infamous Turtle Bay Resort. Made it very easy to catch a beautiful sunset watching the local surfers catch waves while drinking one of the best Mai Tais ever!!! We also enjoyed hiking the easy nature trails and beaches found along the North Shore. :)
