Interaction with Guests
I am always available via Phone, Text and Email. I live locally and can help with any questions or concerns the guests may have.
The famous Turtle Bay Resort is just a short walk down the main resort road. Many celebrities and high profile guests frequent the hotel. The condo is located in the Kuilima West Estates which is a gated community close to the Resort entrance.
There is a Bus stop located in front of the Kuilima West Estates. The most preferred method of transportation is a rental car. It is an hours drive from the airport in Honolulu to the condo. There is a designated parking spot for 1 vehicle and an additional vehicle may park in the guest marked spots. An over night parking pass must be obtained from the security office for any vehicles parking over night in a guest marked spot.
Other Things to Note
We purchased a guidebook when we moved here called "Oahu Revealed" (found on O'ahu at Wal Mart and Costco- you could find it online) that has been really informative and unbiased. As for our recommendations: we love the Polynesian Cultural Center less than 15 min away in Laie. It's one of our favorite places. You can tour villages, attend a luau and see a fabulous night show. Snorkeling is a must- Sharks Cove is one of our favorite spots. Ted's Bakery is world famous on the North Shore. The town of Haleiwa, 15- 20 min away is a frequent stop for us. The shrimp truck next to 7-11 is the highest rates on the North Shore, and Matsumotos Shave Ice is perfect after playing at Waimea Bay where you can jump off the big rock, boogie board, swim, and enjoy one of our favorite beaches. Waimea Valley is just behind the bay and is a beautiful nature preserve with an easy hike and waterfall pool you can swim in. There is so much to see! Check out the guidebook for more ideas :-) of course you'll want to see Waikiki- great place to learn to surf (Turtle Bay also has a good surf school).
This really doesn't scratch the surface but gives you some highlights- our favorite luau/ show is the "Chief's Luau" at Sea Life Park across the island. So worth it. Make sure Chief Sielu Avea is hosting and you will have a BALL. Best on the island. Have fun planning and we look forward to being part of the best memories of your lives!

Loved the chocolates, thank you! Check in was very easy and simple, loved it.
Jennifer was a great host! It was very nice to be welcomed with a fresh box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts! Her condo is in great shape for a family to unwind in North Shore. Just a short walk from Turtle Bay Resort and a short drive from many wonderful beaches! This was truly a fantastic and memorable time for my family!!
We loved our trip to Hawaii and staying at Jennifer's place in a locked upscale community made us all feel safe and secure. It was nice to be able to come and go and not worry about our things. The accommodations were just what we expected. We had 4 of us, my wife and I and to 18yr old girls. They loved the place as did we. Thanks Jennifer for the hints you left us on the counter, about places to go and things to do, they were very helpful as well. This was a trip of a lifetime and the accommodations were perfect for us.
Fantastic host and great property! Ultra convenient for golfing at Turtle Bay. Easy access, relaxing location, and wonderful hospitality. The best of Oahu's North Shore!!
We booked this very last minute and Jennifer was very accommodating. Everything in the listing was perfectly accurate and we found the apartment great value. The resort is very quiet, provides a safe environment (with onsite security) and a nice range of facilities (3 pools, tennis courts). Despite the short notice Jennifer was able to accommodate our arrival, we received all necessary information and directions within a couple of hours of booking and when we arrived Jennifer had left us a delicious box of caramacs and a little welcome note. We found the apartment in very clean condition, there were plenty of towels, supplies and linen. We LOVED the enclosed deck which allowed us to enjoy meals and play games out in the beautiful north shore humid air without having to worry about any bugs or mosquitos. The apartment came with a whole host of fund board games, beach toys for our kids, beach chairs and matts and everything that made us feel very at home. We would definitely be back!
The condo was clean tidy but a little tired. The box of chocolates on arrival was a nice touch and all in all we enjoyed our two days in turtle bay.

About the Host, Jennifer
We are a family who loved visiting O'ahu so much, we decided to move here. During the week we live like regular people- working, school, etc. but every weekend we go to Hawaii! Saturday mornings includes snorkeling the vast underwater world surrounding our beautiful island to witness dolphins, turtles, monk seals, and countless varieties of fish. Sunsets on the beach still blow our minds. How can those colors be real? Hosting on airbnb creates opportunities to share our bit of paradise with wonderful people from across the globe- We love it!
