Turtle Bungalow - 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

Nice Place!

Good price, excellent management, great location, beautiful ocean view and access / the only downside for me was the traffic noise and the queen mattress could use an upgrade.

Loved this rental!

It was comfortable and very clean. The location was perfect and the view of the ocean out front was beautiful. The caretaker Bernadette was always available to answer our questions and made our stay very comfortable. We had a short vacation but we will definitely come back again and will refer our friends to this property. Angelo M., Avondale, Arizona; July 2015


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! Lori L, Kapolei, Hawaii; December 4, 2014

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 North Shore 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. N. Pandit, Ewa Beach, Hawaii; December 1, 2014

Clean Family Vacation house

Not exactly as described. Climate control.

  • 3 of 5

The place was nice but not exactly as described. The air conditioners do not keep up with the heat. They ask you to turn them off when you venture out. When we returned from outings the place was up to 92 to 98 degrees and at that point the units could not catch up. It was miserable after a day at the beach. They want to conserve electricity but comfort was important to us on this once in a lifetime trip.

We paid a significant cleaning fee but were expected to do the dishes. Wipe down all the counters and take all the trash out. Seems like a significant fee for them to wash sheets and sweep the floor.

The place has no insulation and the noice from the road is really bad. It's dangerous turning into the house with the gate out front and we were almost rear ended twice. We were given the wrong code to get in the house. Overall it wasn't a bargain but we felt like it sure should have been. Thank you. Ruby Miller

The house was located in fairly close proximity to the north shore which is where we spent the majority of our time surfing. The house was dusty and looked as if it hadn't been used in a long time. I would have liked better lighting at night, very little overhead lights. The house was also cold at night. Granted it was winter but there was not enough blankets for the three of us to sleep comfortably. The kitchen was stocked with all the amenities we needed and had good seating. The bathroom was very small and didn't have any counter space to put toiletries except for baskets which were not very convenient. The main bedroom also didn't have any dresser for clothes so had to keep everything in my suitcase that didn't get hung. Overall adequate conditions.

Owner's Response: Aloha Dayna, We appreciate you leaving a review and your feedback about the bungalow. Rest assured your feedback is taken seriously. We take pride in making sure our rentals are clean, stocked and comfortable. We also make sure that our listing reflects the accuracy of what is being advertised. We have more than enough blankets in the house...not to mention an impeccable cleaning crew. Our guest services is available to address any concerns that a guest may have...including any requests for more blankets. I do not believe she was contacted for additional blankets. This property is on the ocean, so if the windows are opened up, the salt air may leave some residue, however, that would only be if the windows open all day. I can't imagine there being any dust, as the cleaning crew thoroughly cleans the to bottom...including any required dusting. Maelita, the caretaker, inspects after each cleaning and ensures the home is guest ready before check in. It's rare that we receive unsatisfactory comments, however, we will always do our best to make sure Guest reviews are considered in ensuring that our future guests are happy with their stay. Mahalo

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

For visiting our son in college there in Liae it was perfect for proximity to getting back and forth. The home was very comfortable. It backs up to a river and made for a nice backyard sitting eating dinner by. The air-conditioning units were very nice to have in each room. The shower did not have a light and it was hard to see in but the bathroom itself was well lit. The outside lighting was not connected to our unit. So we only could use the one light close to door at night. Parking was tricky when the other guests were there. But it all seemed to work out ok. Maybe a little wider driveway? The place was very clean and well stocked with most nessessary items. The housekeeper was always so helpful if we had any questions about anything or needed anything they were right there. Thank you!
