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

Our time at the Turtle bay condo was very nice and relaxing. We enjoyed the use of the beach and restaurants as well as the great location to other nice beaches. We were disappointed when we found out that we could not use the resort pool. All in All our stay was very nice and relaxing.
Jason made us feel welcome, he was very friendly and made sure I knew where to find things if I needed anything. We had trouble once with the gate code not working, so I called Jason and just buzzed us in and ensured the issue was corrected. The condo was very comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.
The Turtle Bay resort is a great location for exploring the North Shore. The listing description was accurate. Jason communicated timely and answered our questions.
The reservation was canceled 20 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We spent nice time in Jason's place, even if hurricane Isell came through the Island. But Jason had already warned us and we were very safe in his house.
Jason's place is very nice, one room, an open upper level with one double bed and a rollaway bed, and a big living room below.
Good location also, with nice beach at Turtle Bay Resort and around.
I booked Jason's 2 bedroom for 2 nights. He messaged me that he had a overbooking issue and asked me to change my dates if it was possible. We agreed to change the dates for him but the deal was to let us check in at 12pm instead of 3pm. But our room was not cleaned until 4pm. Then I noticed that it wasn't a 2 bedroom, it was a 1 bedroom…. Unfortunately, I think Jason forgot to mention that it would be a 1 bedroom instead of a 2 bedroom when he asked me to change the dates because of the overbooking issue. I am not perfect, nobody is perfect and I understand that we all make mistakes… still trying to resolve things… I know that the host did not do this intentionally, but he should be a lot more careful when booking because other people were mentioning in their reviews that there was a over booking issue (they were not mad though). It is very difficult to deal with clients when things go wrong… I know because I deal with high end clients and it is all about being sincere.
other than that, the place was clean with a nice pool and close to the beach.
This place is decent and a fine place to stay if you've got no kids or special needs. On the good side, it's roomy and close to the beach. The downsides are many: no air conditioning and it is literally a bare condo: few towels, no soap of any kind, no dish towels, sponges, dish soap, laundry detergent, nothing. Be ready to do major shopping when you get there. I wish we had known this up front, since in our case it would have made a good deal of difference (see below). Although the condo looks nice it is not in the greatest of shape and the cleaning people had not done a good job when we got there. The floor was dirty, the towels smelled mildewy, the shower curtain was moldy, and the bathrooms hadn't been cleaned thoroughly. It is very bare, not the sort of place you can arrive and immediately feel relaxed.
In our case, all of this made quite the difference because we were flying in with an 8 month old in tow. The condo is advertised as baby friendly but I would not recommend it to families with small children. We were told there would be a crib, flew in relatively late (for our kid, anyway) and arrived to find this not-completely-ready place, no crib in sight. We found out later it was in a closet somewhere, really a bassinet that was way too small for our kid. Jason had someone bring by a more appropriate packnplay the next day, but by that point we'd already spent a completely exhausting night basically holding our kid all night because a) she was exhausted from the trip, b) she was in a new place, and c) she had no appropriate place to sleep. All in all, not a great experience. We ended up leaving early because it was just really difficult to be there with a baby.
This was the only vacation we planned to take this year and I have to say I was pretty disappointed with the results. Jason was available to answer the phone and kind, but the setup of the condo just wasn't right for us. Bottom line, if the original ad for this place had been a bit clearer about what it was and wasn't, we would have booked somewhere else.
Very sorry you had to cut you trip short, however we did not know the age of your child , we provided a basinet and the following morning a pack and play. The home has never had a bad report of cleaning however we did report back to our company that there was sand in the in main bathroom. Families traveling with children are recomended to take their needs into consideration, we understand the constraints this puts on a trip. We do not provide laundry as part of the listing however we did open it up to your group at no charge. We did not have soap as we dont list with laundry as it had been broken by a guest and rather then charge then for breaking our unit we decided to not included it as it is not a properly treated item. We not that we provide towels but not beach towels, we replace if needed and we wash the old ones. However beach towels go missing so we dont list with such for guests. We have had two times now with travelers with young babies have canceled early and besides that never had this issue. Thus we are sorry you had a ruff trip but will no longer be renting to future guests with Babies as it seems the logistics of a vacation should be at a Hotel with laundry service not a homestay / condo. Good luck int he future and your valid points have been noted. Again I appreciate that you said this condo was NOT RIGHT FOR US. However this is our business and things need to be in context as we went over an above to provide what you needed when you need which is not part of the experience of renting a condo and thus should not be expected but appreciated when it happens. Aloha and happy future trips!
