Great place to stay when visiting byu area
We loved the property a little small in the bedroom but great in all other areas
Needham, MA, United States
Estates at Turtle Bay is the way to go.
This was the 2nd year we have rented a condo on this property. This unit was a studio w/ loft. the loft would not be safe for children or elderly. the stairs were dangerous and not up to code. the outside stairs were also uneven and not up to code. The kitchen/bath/living room were very nice. washing machine was not balanced and made terrible noise. Dryer was not vented outside and made the condo hot and humid. Everything else was in working order. The loft needed a small TV. The bed sagged a bit and the floor in loft needed some serious repairs. I would not rent this unit again next year. Six loud children live next door.
There is no wi-fi, but that was not an issue for us. Kuilima Estates is the best place to vacation on Oahu!
Great Golf-Beautiful Sunsets
Our vacation of 17 days at this cute studio was another great vacation at the Estates at Turtle Bay. Prior guests had commented on the torn sofa, and we were happy to see that the sofa had been replaced with a comfortable leather couch. The stairs leading up to the loft and the outside stairs were not up-to-code. The loft was so low, that if you are over 5'7" you will have a tough time not bumping your head on the ceiling. There were some areas in the floor of the loft, that felt like your foot might fall through,(the floor under the carpet had issues.) Family living below this unit has 6 children who make alot of noise. If that might bother you, this would not be the unit to rent, and for that reason, I myself will seek another unit to rent on my next stay at Kuilima Estates. If you are fed up with the chaos in Waikiki, this is the place to relax.

Small but cozy
My family is from Oahu and I was travelling back to the state for my cousin's wedding at Turtle Bay Resort. My whole family rented several condos in the same complex and we had a nice family reunion this past Dec. The resort itself is quiet and relaxing with easy access to the golf course and beach. Everything that you would want in a very relaxing Hawaiian vacation. No traffic like in "town" (Waikiki), just a nice place to enjoy family and get a tan.
The condo I rented was very nice and clean. Nothing fancy, just a place to hang your hat. Renovated kitchen with utensils, washer/dryer and a loft area for the bed. Big ceilings so it didn't feel so tiny.
There were permanent residents below the condo but I didn't hear any noise from them. I ran into them a couple of times and they seemed like nice people.
Overall, if you're on a budget and want to enjoy a quieter, more relaxed Hawaii, I would definitely recommend this place. I didn't realize how relaxing it was until we moved to hotel rooms in Waikiki for the rest of our stay. I missed the condo and the easy atmosphere.
Birkdale, Queensland, Australia
Overall this property was great,as I had a friend's wedding at Turtle bay resort. This property is easy 10 min walking distance from the resort and came in at about 1/3 of the cost of the resort!! There was also washer and drier so could catch up on my washing.
Highland, Utah, United States
Nice condo for the price!!
We enjoyed our stay, the condo is a little outdated, and the carpet needs to be replaced,the kitchen had new appliances and was nice. For the price it was a nice place.
Los Angeles, CA, United States
No frills but nice place to stay for a wedding weekend
I attended a wedding nearby and stayed here for two nights. Yes, the furniture and decor are a little out of date, but the place had everything I needed -- a fully equipped (and remodeled) kitchen, comfy bed, clean bathroom, and washer/dryer (though they were quite loud when running). This is a fine place to stay if you're spending most of your time out and about.
Atwater, Ca, United States
The property was great. We enjoyed our entire trip. The only thing we would change is the couch. It was old, ragged and torn. If the property got a new couch our stay would have been perfect.
WAIMANALO, HI, United States
stay @ turtle bay
furniture was torn, carpet dirty/stained, loft very hot, a/c does not cool unit at all. will not rent again.
mesa, arizona, United States
I loved the location to where I had to attend the conference but i was a little put off by the condition of the carpet and the tears in the couch. It was a little dated and I thought it was a bit fraudulant considering the photos did not show this. i do understand these are rentals but still. I loved the fact there was beach towels and a chair I counld take down to the beach.
Beaverton, OR, United States
Great vacation spot!
Our condo was excellent and worked out nicely. Walking distance to all the activities, pools, surfing, snorkeling, golfing, beaches, you name it! Close to Turtle Bay Resort restaurants and nightlife. If I have one complaint it is we chose this place because we could walk everywhere, unfortunately the rental office is off site 3 1/2 miles away so checking in/out without a car was an inconvenience. Why isn't the rental office on site?
Response from The Estates at Turtle Bay, Inc. - 04/25/2012
Legally, we are not allowed to have an office on residential property.
honolulu, Hi, United States
Overall I liked the place and it was fairly quite. They should replace the couch that is ripped and probably change the carpet. Overall the place was good and I enjoyed it and the location. Close walk to the hotel for coffee and pastry and easy access to the golf course.
White Plains, NY, United States
excellent location/great value
My spouse and I were in Hawaii for a wedding. The property was very conveniently located. We also did a lot of walking around to be tourists. The condo was very comfortable. It was very well furnished. The internet WIFI connection was a bit weak. Over all we had a great time.
Response from The Estates at Turtle Bay, Inc. - 03/22/2012
This condo does not have Wi-Fi.
Laie, HI, United States
Great bungalow feel for a quick getaway
Booked this room for a quick getaway and fell in love with the place. Although its a loft style condo, the place felt spacious while still maintaining separation from the kitchen, laundry room, living room, and bedroom loft. The condo was clean, readily furnished and supplied with laundry soap, kitchen appliances and dishware, and bedding. We had an unforgettable time and would recommend this property to anyone.
Affordable place to stay on North Shore
We enjoyed our stay at the turtle bay estates. Would recommend to anyone that wants to turtle bay experience on a budget
Springville, UT, United States
The dishes were dirty, and carpet very dirty. The condo needs to be deep cleaned and carpet needs to be shampooed.

Bed not very comfortable and loft was claustrophobic. Couch not comfortable. View & location great.

126 Loft Condo Unit
Light bulbs were burnt out, the lamps were old & rusty, wobbly, the window lever to open the window in the living room was broken off--but everything got fixed after we notified mgmt. Would be nicer if the wall pictures were replaced with new updated ones, the small TV was replaced with a flat screen, & the BR had a facelift, but still v. practical & usable. Enjoyed the new applicances in the kitchen & extra bedding/towels. Very nice stay, quiet, peaceful with birds singing in the mornings & immaculate lush grounds full of color & foliage! enjoyed the adult only pool too! Mahalo.

Overall we had a nice vacation but of course the condo needed some maintenance such as sliding door rollers, fridge handle tightened, burnt out light bulbs replaced and livingroom bottom louvers on window fixed. The sliding doors was our biggest concern. You have to be pretty strong to open and close that door. Even the screen door would jam to open or close it. The furniture was quite uncomfortable. That includes the couch and bed. The cleansiness was okay. I've rented from the Estates at Turtle Bay five times now and never had a complaint about the other condos I was in. I would rent unit #126 West again if maintenance was done and newer/comfortable furniture was in the condo.
Hasn't been looked at since 1996?
The notebook that contains literature from 1996. I suspect that nothing has been done to this condo since then. The carpet had numerous big stains. 50% of the lights downstairs did not work. The back patio door doesn't open. The internet doesn't work (how about providing a wireless router so that I can get internet access on my ipad?). I'm not too picky so I could live with the unkept condition of the condo, but I don't think others would be happy about it.

Debra C.'s review of Turtle Bay 126 West *
This unit could easily use some sprucing up. Most of the furniture looks original & soiled. The loft area is cramped but do able. The kitchen faces the parking lot so without window shades it is not very private trying to have a meal in there. It would be nice to have a newer shower head, caddy & more racks for towels. As far as location, the northshore is tops as well as the location of these units. Management is very helpful but they are a mile or so from the estates. There is an office on site as well as security to help with some matters. Cannot beat the relaxed atmosphere & beauty of this side of Oahu.
An Amazing 5 Nights
Great place, even though the shower head felt like bullets and the drawers in the loft were broken, the condo in it's entirety was amazing! Great place! Stocked really well and for such a low price too!
My fiance and I stayed at the Estates for 5 days, 4 nights. It was wonderful! The property was well cared for and had everything that we needed! Our only bummer is that we thought we read we had rights to use the amenities on the Turtle Bay resort property (pool, gear and such)and came to find that that was not true. It all worked out anyway and we had a grand time! We were still able to eat at the restaurants and watch the sunsets and the like- We recommend it! Thanks so much!
The Perfect Location.
I think they need to update their furniture. The couch was ripped and worn, but the location is perfect and the neighborhood is safe enough to walk around at all hours. We were within walking distance from Turtle Bay Resort and the beach which made it all worth it!! I would definetly stay there again.
Property was old, couch...
Property was old, couch torn, carpet stained and the housekeeping was terrible!
I would rate the Estates at Turtle Bay 5 Star. We were quite hap
As a result, the property management found us another condo with a working internet...this property is lovely as well. We stay here at the estates at least once a year and love the location and the condos. Thank you!
La Grande, OR
126W is a dated studio. Kitchen has been updated but the rest of the apartment is 1990's. 4X4 tiles in kitchen and bath room but carpet in rest of studio. Carpet is dirty with large spots and worn. Bathroom is clean but dated. Stairs to loft are killers at night. Loft ceiling is separating from the rafters with holes directly over the bed. If you are worried about spiders or creepy crawlies falling on you in the night..... On the flip side it was very inexpensive. Outside Turtle Bay grounds were perfect as always with golf courses in perfect condition. The resort was booming and impossible to tell they just came out of bankruptcy everything looked pretty good for April. Long and short you get what you pay for. If this is for the perfect honeymoon get a different condo. If you are a frequent visitor to Turtle Bay/North Shore and want a very inexpensive crash site this is fine.
1 Star property
Not a good condo for children or elderly people, bedroom is in a loft with steep staircase. Furniture is worn out and dirty.
The air conditioner is located on the bottom floor which makes it difficult to cool the loft area where the bed is located. Then we made the mistake of using the dryer and that made the loft area like a sauna.
Response from The Estates at Turtle Bay, Inc. - 02/24/2010
There are no air conditioning units in the loft areas in any of the condos.
We enjoyed staying at Turtle Bay Estates! Convenient location to stay when visiting all North Shore attractions. Our unit could have been cleaned better and the furniture was worn - but overall we had a great stay. The kitchen appliances are new and worked great!

The stairs to the loft are a bit slippery and a bit difficult to manage coming down. My partner slipped and fell the bottom portion of the stairs twice....once getting a rub burn on her arm trying to grasp the armrail. The only way to manage the stairs was to go down sideways!
Great golf getaway!
We took advantage of a three-day weekend to get away with friends for two days of golf. The Estates gave us a reasonably priced venue with everything we needed. The unit was right on the No. 3 fairway of the Fazio course, making the view very nice and the setting very quiet. Can't wait to do this again!

North Shore Excursion
Weather was the worst in 11 trips to Hawaii, my fifth to the north shore of Oahu and 4th at Kuilima Estates. Need to fix the burned out lights. Watch your head when going up to the loft. Handle on refrigerator is loose, as well as the door lock on the main entrance.
This condo had a great updated kitchen. The condo was a good clean unit. The back screen door had come off the frame and so mosquitos were very welcome and we got eaten alive. The bed was old and squeeky every time we moved the sounds woke us up - so we never slept well.
Next time we'll pay a little extra/night for an upgrade and hope for a better bed and a little more updated condo.

Nice golfcours view, but very noisey ground keeping early morning 5:am
microwave didn't work
couldn't find a switch or circuit breaker in condo 126 to give power to the microwave. otherwise very nice, just a bit out of the way for our island itinerary. condo is not near the address of the management office in Kahuku -- it's 4 miles further north.

Great affordable place. My unit had an a/c problem that was not resolved. The weather was perfect so it was not a big deal.

I love Hawaii I have been in Hawaii 3. My husband is a surfer and he show me the most beautiful place in my life.And my honey moon was there!!!!!! I love Kuilima and I hope to be there next year.Kisses to Susan my diller rental apartament.Mahalo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the location at Turtlebay because it is not commercialized in that area. I dislike the location because I can not walk to a grocery store from the condo. I know that would be asking a lot but I wish there was a small grocery close buy. I love being able to walk to everything and like how uncommecialized (ie tourist tarp)the area is. The sleeping area upstairs did smell mildewy, but the rest of the condo was adequate and clean.

Can't Wait to Go Again
Although we live on Oahu, this vacation rental allowed us to feel like we were visiting another island. We enjoyed our stay and was pleased with all the amenities, including a washer & dryer and a fully furnished kitchen.
Our twentyfifth anniversary trip to Hawaii
The condo was clean but there were these tiny bugs on the kitchen counter. The loft was very hot when we arrived and didn't sleep up there. Wife slept on couch and I slept on twin bed under stairs. Loft bedroom created a safety concern if getting up in the night.
Get out of Waikiki!
Great location with several very nice beaches within 10 minutes or so. Close to Wiameia(?) Bay, which is great for snorkeling. No complaints on the condo - it's old but 126W has been recently updated and is pretty nice.
Great stay for a great price!
How can I complain? We had all we needed. It's not a top-notch millionaire feeling place, but it's cozy, clean, quiet, convenient, appealing and affordable! We loved it. It had a great kitchen area, a washing machine and dryer, three beds (counting the pull out), nice view of the golf course, just a skip and a jump over to the Turtle Bay resort and beach (so you don't have to pay to park there, you can just walk from your apartment). The location is great for all the local beaches: 10 min to Waimea and Sharks Cove, 10 min the other way to Laie. Eating out is so expensive in Hawaii, so it was nice to have a great big fridge so that we could go shopping at the local grocery store and put everything at our place. We loved it!
The only suggestion I would have is for the owners to leave some games or tennis rackets for the courts, which are right next to the apartment. We give it a 9.5 out of 10.
Property and furnishings are...
Property and furnishings are somewhat dated but very adequate. Proximity to Turtle Bay Resort was a plus. Certainly could not beat the price. I would stay here again.
quiet condo on turtle bay
Great location, easy driving to get to north shore or east coast beaches/attractions. Nice beach on property was only a 5-10 min walk.
Perfect for a small family!!!
We loved staying at Turtle Bay. The resort was absolutely beautiful. The location was perfect and so nice to be away frow the city. This condo was small enough for the two of us and didn't feel cramped at all. The air conditioning worked great and we were very comfortable. We would definately return for the low rate and high quality service!!!

Mahalo for the nice review~!
This was our first time to stay at the Estates of Turtle Bay. This buget unit only had one window airconditioner but, met our general needs. The location was great. Very quiet. Nice landscaping. Golf course view. Chose this area because of the running trails. Also, free parking. We snorkled at the beach area and saw several sea turtles and tropical fish. We are looking forward to returning in May 2008 where we have already booked a nicer unit.
The location was fine and the manager was helpful. The problem was the condition of the cond. The upstairs loft has mice droppings and you could see a hole where the mice were coming in. If you moved the table and bed it is on wheels out you could seee the droppings. It was totally disgusting. The kitchen and bathroom were clean and acceptable. The down stairs roll out bed was full of sand. I would not recommend this condo.

This condo was a "budget" unit. It is advertised as such and the rent is very low. The condo has since been remodeled.

It was a good stay overall. Very efficient and handy for one person... had everything I needed. The little kids next door were a little noisy at times but generally not too bad at all.
We want to come back and we've already sent our friends
Our trip last August was the 2nd time I had stayed at the Estates at Turtle Bay. Both times were a-ma-zing! The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing, as opposed to the crowded city down in Honolulu, and it's close to everything wonderful up on the North Shore. I lived in Hawaii for a year and whenever I go back, The Estates at Turtle Bay is the only place I plan to stay.

I could never get the air conditioning to work. It didn't really matter so much because I had the fan and the open windows. We would like to come back in December and are hoping to do so.
