REVIEWS

Great value, wonderful property.

This being our second trip to Hawaii, we wanted to stay away from Waikiki and experience the North side of the island and relax away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. This property was referred by a friend who visited Oahu last year so we decided to book it. Our first impression when we drove up was that the property was in a good location, as it was located very close to family living nearby in Laie. When we entered the rental, we were blown away at how beautiful it was. The rental smelled nice and was very clean. It had everything we needed and our caretaker Bernadette was such a sweetheart. She was quick to respond to our questions and offered helpful information in avoiding the tourist traps. Customer service was outstanding! Although it was warm upon our initial arrival, we were quickly relieved once we opened the windows and experienced the cool ocean breeze – the ceiling fans were not needed. This property is in close proximity to the main road, however, the noise is barely noticeable unless the windows are wide open. Our trip was not long enough to enjoy the deck out back and BBQ with family, however, my cousin commented on how nice the rental was and that we should rent the whole house the next time we visit. The views were gorgeous and the price was below what we would expect to pay for this type of rental. We were told that air conditioning would be installed soon and that they'd love to have us back. Apparently, returning guests receive a loyalty discount on future bookings. Great value, great service, and a wonderful property. We'd love to return on our next visit and have the opportunity to enjoy this property completely. Thank you for your hospitality, Bernadette! T. Lee, Chicago, IL, April 4, 2016

Beautiful house.

The house was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Size of the unit was perfect for me & my husband. We could have added 2 more people & the space would still have worked nicely. The view is spectacular. Having the ocean right across the street is wonderful. Caretakers were responsive & very helpful. The ice chest & plastic chairs were very useful for us. We took them with us to the soccer fields. The unit has everything needed for cooking, eating, drinking. Turtle Cabana is a beautiful house.

Amazing!

We were blessed to be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with our entire family there! The new renovations coupled with the character of an older house makes this house special. The stay was very comfortable and our kids enjoyed the many board games! We will definitely return to paddle board in the ocean across the street!

Loved this property!

Spent the Thanksgiving holiday with my family at this property and we really enjoyed our stay. EVERYTHING was new and the entire house was extremely clean. I especially loved the large kitchen and wet bar area. The bonus was the amenities and the location...close to all the NorthShore beaches. Such a perfect view of the beach - which is located directly across the street...and the deck out back had great views of the mountains. The house felt comfortable and we really had a great time during our stay. For the price, we felt we got a great deal for such a fantastic rental. We will be back next year for sure and we will refer our friends.

Very Nice Stay in Hawaii

  • 4 of 5

We found the property to be very nice and enjoyed our stay. I was last minute and we were treated very well by all. The unit was not rented after our stay and were even able to get a late checkout as our flight was not until 10 PM. Many beaches are across the street and not more than 2 to 3 minutes by car. We drove to a large park a few minutes away and spent time there many days.

Again we had a wonderful time.

There were several things I wish we had understood better before we came. The deck and outside of the cabana is a shared item. My wife was not comfortable sitting on the deck reading while others are trying to lay out and catch some sun. While we did have internet it does not go out to the deck so anything online is inside. There is another rental in the same house and the deck outside area is common to both back by the water and trees. The main highway of north shore is not 40 feet from the bedroom window and made for some sleeping challenges as it stays busy most of the night.

perfect for weekend get aways

This Part of the house is great for a quick get away. With the new a/c units its so quiet. With the ocean right out front you got great snorkeling, or diving. The sun rises are amazing! We will definitely be back!

House was clean and well furnished. The bathroom was very nice, large and clean with plenty of water pressure and hot water. The bed rooms were small but very workable. The kitchen is more like a wet bar with a small fridge, no stove and narrow counter space, but with plenty of bar equipment. The outside laundry was very nice. House was missing a bath mat (we bought one and left it for the next renter) and an inside door mat (we used one of our own beach towels), both of these were important since we were asked NOT to put the house towels on the floor or track sand into the house.

The big issue with this house is the location. It is 40 minutes from any good sit down restaurant, which is important given the kitchen situation. There are two very good fast food places fairly close, North Shore Tacos and Seven Brothers Burgers, but neither of these really has a relaxed environment. However, the main issue is the major highway just outside the front door, there is traffic 24/7. This combined with no AC means we had to have the windows open all night, which made sleeping difficult (the traffic drowned out the ocean). Also with the traffic we could not even enjoy the ocean views from the house.

Over all I would NOT recommend this house at the standard asking price, the discounted pricing is more in line with it's value, but even then you will have to put up with the traffic and the drive to a restaurant.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. We have informed the owner regarding the review. She did say that "The property is described in detail on the listing...the unit she rented states there is a kitchenette/wet bar in the cabana. There is an option to rent the bungalow which has a full kitchen and all related amenities. " As for location, all homes on the highway will pose the same issue with traffic. Unfortunately, this is not something we can avoid. ... A/C is not an option for ocean front properties and the breeze in the home more than suffices. I do appreciate the feedback and will discuss." As to the missing bath mats, this should not happen! The house should be well supplied. I will discuss with cleaning crew and caretaker to see what happened."

Cute little place view a great ocean view!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great little two bedroom "cabana" across the street from the ocean. It doesn't have a regular sized fridge/freezer nor does it have a stove (a small hot plate was provided but not used) and has a microwave in the pantry closet, but we weren't looking to do much cooking anyway so it was adequate for our needs. The coffee pot is a nice sized one and brewed fairly quickly YAY! We ended up buying three inexpensive fans at Walmart to help circulate air as the ceiling fans (even though on high) couldn't keep up with the 93` w/94% humidity for six of the nine days we were there, but after talking with a few locals, the temps were NOT normal and they were miserable with it as well, so it can't be held against the rental. The ceiling fans WERE doing well, just not enough for us two Alaskan ladies used to cooler temps! The tiled shower was awesome, the water plentiful, the beds comfortable and the entire place appeared to be lived in but maintained well and very clean overall. (No ick factor)

We had a few issues with our fellow renters, ie: children letting doors slam all hours of the night, but once it was explained to the mother, the sounds died out, at least at night, for the most part. Did not have problems with bugs per say, except early morning and after dark, we do warn you to not have lights on if the windows are open as there are a ton of little teeny tiny fly-like things that love uncovered-not bug-sprayed-skin (ouch!) but didn't have problems with any other kind of critters (there was a snail-party in the back yard one night, but it was pretty tame and quiet so we didn't report them). We only heard a rooster crow a couple times, and a barking dog one night but that was it for outside noise except traffic.

Other than the constant traffic noise since it's next to the main road, it's a great area to stay in! Just a quick dash across the street and a short walk down the side gets you steps to the beach to walk north on. It was too rough after tropical storms to be able to swim there, but the sunrises and sunsets are gorgeous and unobstructed! We took advantage of the various little shops and food trucks in the area.... definitely recommend North Shore Taco and the food truck/gift shop area on the way to Turtle Bay area. Check out Christine & Mark's beach glass store, Full Fathom Five, just up the road a few miles from the cabana. Overall, this was an awesome experience and one I'd repeat in a heartbeat. Mahalo!
