Welcome to Kuilima Estates, the condo property located on the grounds of world-renowned Turtle Bay. The condos are surrounded by two beautifully manicured golf courses and are the only condos on the North Shore. This is a great place to relax, rewind, and restore, and a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The condo property is a short walk to the hotel and to a lovely, sheltered, coved beach, where you can swim, snorkel, and surf. We have our pools, with lounge chairs, an outdoor shower, and charcoal BBQ grills. Bring your own equipment and play tennis on our courts at no charge. Experience the comforts of home as you experience aloha!

Manager Response: Mahalo for your review. Glad to hear you folks had a great stay! Unfortunately, none of our units have a/c in the lofts. Please come back and stay with us again soon!
Manager Response: Mahalo for staying with us.
The only negative I can think of would be to not dry your laundry on high. We had some socks and shirts shrink considerably.
We would definitely come here again and hope to do so in the future.
The property management were very nice people and easy to deal with. They gave us some extra cutting knives since the old ones were as dull as table knives. The dryer had no heat but they had that fixed for us the next day, so thanks for that. The unit needs bright light bulbs all around. At night this is a very darkly illuminated place.
I was upset that we couldnt stay an extra few hours. Our flight home didnt leave until 10:30 pm so we asked to stay until 5pm before we left but that would have cost us an extra day.... it wouldn't have cost them a single cent since the unit was not rented out right away. The cleaning lady could have come the next day instead of that afternoon, which likely happened anyway. So a bit of customer support would have gone a long way.
Manager Response: Mahalo for staying! Glad you enjoyed the condo.

Lots of Room sleeps 6 easily. Nice to have a washer and dryer and WiFi. Adequate kitchen supplies for 5 but more than that would see people sharing bowls, spoon, knives, etc. 5 minute walk to beach. Great beach fro snorkeling Great to have the hotel near by for evenings out and to play golf, Frisbee golf, ride bike, rent surf boards, get surfing lessons, etc. Nice to have so many pools to choose from and the barbeques were cleaned daily. We did not play tennis but it was available just outside our door. Very quiet and garden like setting. Way away from the din and glitz of Wakiki!
The cleaning staff needs to clean the dusty fake plants, very dusty overhead fans, and the garbage and underwear under the beds. Although WIFI speed was not a big issue for us, don't expect blazing WIFI Speeds (e.g., Took 5 hours to download the Hobbit through Itunes.
We enjoyed eating out at the many food trucks. They are pricey and all are not created equally. If you want a good burger that is reasonably priced you want to eat at Seven Brothers. We also made repeat visits to Ted's for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We loved everything we ate there: e.g. Omelette, sandwiches, meat plates, garlic shrimp and pastries. We did have sticker shock at the local grocery stores, Foodland. On the condo key is a tag that will give you some reduced pricing at the store. Buy in Honolulu before coming up the coast.
Before you choose to rent you need to be aware of a few items; e.g. the mattresses are not pillow tops but were reasonably comfortable. We did have issues with little black ants climbing out of the cupboards upon arrival. I called the management company who stated they would send someone. We never saw anyone. Two days later I decided to buy ant traps and clean the cupboards myself. I destroyed several nests but could not get rid of all of the ants. A professional exterminator service needs to be hired to take care of this. When I reported the concern again at check out there was no apology only trying to find out where they were. I hope they resolve this situation.
Would we stay there again?, yes. We had a wonderful time and the condo fit our family perfectly. Aloha!
Manager Response: Aloha! Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay, we do appreciate your feedback. We do apologize for the problem with the ants. Our maintenance person did come by to spray, unfortunately this is an ongoing problem which both the garden grounds and age of the property contribute to. Thank you for your efforts we do also have professional exterminator come every other month as well. Mahalo Maralyn
The condo was very comfortable and the loft was especially convenient with two extra beds, therefore no one needed to sleep in the living room. Upstairs carpet could use a deep cleaning. Glassware was severely lacking, with only 7 mismatched large water glasses, no juice glasses, no wine glasses.
Management company sent good information and made arrangements for our Sunday arrival. Helpful people.
The Wifi was not working during our stay, but it was only a minor inconvenience since our stay was short (2 nights).
Our main concern is that the listing did not list that it comes with only 1 parking spot. After payment was received, we were told it only had 1 parking spot, and that we could request 1 guest parking from the resident manager upon arrival. I sent 3 emails the week before our trip asking for clarification on the parking, and there was no response. When I called the property management company, they claimed to have not received any of my emails, and they didn't seem concerned at all that they didn't receive emails.
Key pick up was between 3 and 4pm. At 330pm I picked up the keys and asked the hours of the resident manager. The property management company didn't know, but guessed it might be 4 or 5pm. Upon getting the rental just a few minutes later, I went to the resident managers office to discover that on Fridays, the office closes at 3pm. Thus there was no way to get guest parking on a Friday since you have to pick up the keys first. Fortunately we ran into the resident manager shortly thereafter and were able to get 1 additional spot. The property management company really should be aware of the resident manager's hours, and the listing should include the parking situation before booking.
Proximity to great beaches including Sunset, Waimea Bay, Chun's Reef and more as well as entertainment including the Polynesian Cultural Center, Haleiwa for shopping and Matsumoto's Shaved Ice makes the location perfect.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the food on the North Shore including Giovanni's shrimp truck and Ted's Bakery for malasadas, mahi mahi sandwiches, chocolate haupia pie and much, much more! This trip my son really enjoyed being able to walk to the Turtle Bay resort to play golf. Two championship courses at some of the best green fees on the island!
For the second time now the Estates at Turtle Bay was the perfect condo for our vacation rental and I hope we get the chance to return again!
Manager Response: Any beach equipement found in the condos is from previous guests and is a bonus. We do not provide beach equipment, as our policies states.
Manager Response: Unfortunately, sometimes the weather has an effect on the communication satellite. We do the best we can!
Everything went very well :)
