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.
The bus comes to the gate entrance and goes to all the near by beaches!

Great location. Beautiful scenery. Studio is in a quiet block of houses. Pool beautiful. Would be helpful to leave some details of the facilities in the resort and nearby towns (restaurants, tourist hotspots etc) for guests. Also, we didn't realise we needed a parking pass from security until they left a notice on our car - it would be helpful to provide this pass (or information that it was required and how to get it) to guests. Jason was extremely helpful when we phoned him to get into the premises after having initially received the incorrect code for the gate. Overall, a very nice spot. Thanks Jason!
This place is simple but provided exactly what we needed, and it's in a great location to explore the North Shore. Our only complaint is that while Jason promised to drop by a fob to give us access to parking (the instructions about the code to access parking are outdated), he never appeared. That was a minor inconvenience though, and we had a great time.
He answered all of my calls, or returned them within a day. Although the promise for a pool key never materialized a key for us, the nice neighbors let us in.
Everything was as described and we had a wonderful time. Clear, timely communication when we needed it. Clean, convenient and friendly location as well. Thanks for a wonderful stay-cation!
We had a wonderful stay at Turtle Bay. The studio was in a great location. The beaches are amazing , and sunsets gorgeous. We did so many activities- golf, snorkeling , yummy food trucks , watching the surfing and experienced Oahu North Shore to the fullest.
The studio has basic linens and few kitchen amenities. We had 1 beach towel , 1 roll of toilet paper, no pool key and the wifi didn’t work. You will need to remind the host and he did provide ; however it was on our last night .
We would love to come back to Turtle Bay and certainly the condos are a great value compared to the hotel.
Very sorry for no second roll of Toilet paper. The Resident manager had said they had a second key for you but they did not bring it by as requested. However we will be giving you a retro discount for the hassle. The WIFI has been working fine but I think there may be fireware issues as the next store was using it same time and it was Operating. Thank you for staying with us.
Turtle bay great location. Nice to be by bike rentals and ocean and hotel. Room not so good. Super dirty and dusty. Bathroom shower was dirty. Pictures are better than the place. Parking pass not easy. Value not good. Pd $150 a night with all the fees the $89 is not accurate. Bed uncomfortable. Lots of potential for the room but no attention to detail.
Everything went smoothly. Jason responded promptly to any questions I had.
