The Neighborhood

Kuilima Estates

Welcome to Oahu's unspoiled North Shore, where your dreams of a perfect Hawaiian vacation come true with fun filled days and nights to remember. Kuilima Estates is nestled in the center of one of the two championship 18 hole golf courses on the grounds of The Turtle Bay Resort.

The Estates are only minutes away from the beach where you can enjoy swimming, surfing, snorkeling, or just plain relaxing on the miles of pristine sandy beaches. Waikiki and its many attractions are about an hour and a half away.

Within the Estates are five sparkling pools and four regulation tennis courts. You will find your condo spacious and well equipped - a full size kitchen, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer, and cable TV (full kitchen not applicable if you are renting only the lock out private studio).

Enjoy the fabulous sunsets. You may choose to cook a gourmet meal in your condo, or barbecue at one of the outdoor facilities by the pools. North Shore beaches offer world famous surfing & wind surfing at Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay, and Banzai Pipeline.

North shore:

No less an authority than National Geographic just called it 'one of the wonders of the world - one of Earth's most awesome places' and respected travel journalists are now referring to it as 'the fabled shore.' Separated from Waikiki by a scenic hour's drive and the Ko'olau Range, a fragmented remnant of a massive prehistoric volcano, the North Shore has remained a non-fiction Shangri-La that is one of Hawaii's last remaining places that is entitled to call itself authentic. If you want to discover another side of Hawaii, this is it.

On The North Shore, Locals Measure The Hours, The Days And The Seasons Of The Year In Terms Of Tides, Waves, Winds And Weather.

Winter seas quickly climb sharply sloping coastal shelves to create colossal waves - at up to 5-storys high they are among the largest and most powerful curtains of water in the world. For surfers and their global followers this 7-mile stretch of white sand beaches possesses its own heroes, legends and icons. The epic waves, the incredible natural beauty and the friendly people have inspired distinctive music, art, photography, filmmaking and even food that are uniquely part of the North Shore vibe.

Meanwhile, On A Hilltop High Above Ocean, An Ancient Temple Overlooks Waimea Bay.

The temple is a national landmark and it, along with hidden valleys, secret trails and lush sanctuaries protecting more than 5,000 exotic and endangered wildlife species give us a completely different perspective not only of the North Shore but also of all Hawaii. The North Shore grabs almost everyone and never lets go. It is that memorable.

The North Shore Is The Life Of The Supreme Athlete

It is also the home of the Polynesian Culture Centre and Turtle Bay, the North Shore’s only destination resort. But much more than that, it is a community of people – native Hawaiians and generations of migrants who came in search of Eden and who know the fabled North Shore in all its intricacies and who welcome those who come here to understand and soak up the specialness of it.


turtle Bay Is Often Visited By Several Different Marine Mammals And Endangered Species. It Is Always A Treat To See Them On Our Shores But Please Follow The Law. Keep Your Distance And Respect These Amazing Creatures. Do Not Touch Them, Harass Them Or Feed Them. Enjoy Their Presence From A Distance.

Kohola (Humpback Whales)

Humpback whales visit the waters along Turtle Bay Resort beginning each year in November and can be seen through April, with the peak of the season being from January to March. Turtle Bay Resort is located in the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary which encompasses approximately 1,218 square nautical miles of coastal and ocean waters around the main Hawaiian Islands. Turtle Bay is pleased to work with the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, which protects the winter breeding, calving and nursing range of the largest remaining population of the endangered humpback whale.

Honu (Sea Turtle)

The two types of sea turtles most frequently observed at Turtle Bay are the green sea turtle and the hawksbill sea turtle. The green sea turtle is listed as a threatened species under federal and state law. Hawaiian green sea turtles have shown a good population recovery in recent years, although they are still plagued with a papilloma virus that causes disfiguring tumors. Hawksbill sea turtles are sighted much less frequently than the greens. Honu are spotted on every kayak tour. After all it isn't called Turtle Bay for nothing.

‘Ilio-holo-i-ka-uaua (Monk Seal)

Hawaiian monk seals are among the most critically endangered mammals in the world. Only about 1,200 seals are alive today. There is a small and growing population of seals in the main Hawaiian Islands and a 2005 survey observed 76 seals here. Monk seals frequently haul-out on our shorelines to rest and molt. They may look sick, but they are usually perfectly healthy. Beaches at Turtle Bay are isolated from large human populations and are a favorite haul-out location for these critically endangered Hawaiian Monk Seals. Turtle Bay Resort takes extra precausions to make sure these wonderfull animals are left alone and are treated with respect.

Nai`a (Dolphin)

Whales and dolphins are highly perceptive of their surrounding environment. Dolphins are often found playing with inanimate objects, both in captivity and in the wild. They have frequently been seen using plastic bags, pieces of seaweed or any other debris as objects to toss around, drag off one’s pectoral fins or flukes, and exchange with other members. Such observations are suggestive of playing games similar to our version of “tag” or “catch”. Play in animals is a way of learning or practicing important life skills.

Getting around

Yes there is a bus out side the door that gets you all around Oahu!

Great experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying in Jason's condo on Turtle Bay Resort. The condo was exactly as described. Very clean/updated kitchen. There was no air conditioning but with the windows plus numerous fans this was not an issue at all. Jason was also great and responded to emails/calls in a very timely manner. We also received our refundable security deposit back in a very timely manner. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit North Shore!

Perfect north shore location

  • 3 of 5

Perfect location, close to beaches and right on door step of Turtle Bay Resort facilities, including restaurants/bars within walking distance! You couldn’t find a better location. Easy to book and Jason was very easy to deal with. The property itself is basic but adequate and quiet.

There were a few downsides which could easily be sorted to make for a better stay. No aircon unit (other than a small stand alone unit downstairs which isn’t enough to cool the large space or the upstairs sleeping area), no curtains on any windows, no iron, dishes were not clean (wine stains still on glasses in cupboard), and although advertised as having a washer/dryer, there was a note on this instructing us not to use.

The confirmation email we received also stated there was “swim, surf and snorkel equipment” in the property. The only equipment was one set of fins and one mask which we discovered was broken (major leak) only after driving to a beach that didn’t have any hire equipment, which was disappointing.
