Pam S. from West Jordan, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2015 Our condo was lovely, located right on the golf course. It was clean and spacious. Our only issue (and it became a big issue for us) was that every night, the security came to the pool between 7 and 7:30 and told us the residents who lived there wanted us to be quiet. We were not a loud nor large group. Several nights we left the pool early, but it was a great gathering place for our kids and young adults. We felt that we were well within normal noise limits (no screaming, but kids calling to each other and young adults laughing). We felt we had paid for the use of the pool till it closed at 9:00 pm and that the residents who lived there should realize that there will be a little noise if you live alongside a pool. This put a damper on our visit.
Donna H. from Honolulu, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 Everyone had a great time. I suggest parking in guest parking and not the unit stall because my car got bombarded with berries from the tree.
Reviewed by: Deborah M. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 Our overall experience was good. The location of this unit was very convenient. The condition of the unit was average but good enough. I knew I wasn't booking a 5-star hotel, the unit looked exactly how it does in the pictures. My only semi-complaint is for the air conditioners. We stayed on a really hot, humid, muggy weekend and the air conditioners did us no justice. Sometimes it didn't even feel like cold air was blowing. Other than that, I would definitely recommend these condos to others and we will be back. It is reasonably priced and convenient when visiting the north side of Oahu.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 Well maintained unit. Wish there were more parking stalls available per unit -- we were given one extra parking permit, but the lot was empty! Nice to have free parking at the hotel when we wanted to go to the beach. Well maintained unit. thank you!
A guest from Honolulu, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 I was generally pleased with the condition of the property, however, there were a couple of things that I was unhappy about. First, the living room AC was visibly busted. I called & had to wait about 30-45 min before being able to unpack, when I received a call back telling me to use the remote the control the AC & upon finding the remote, that solved the problem. Second, & more importantly, the bedroom TV was completely busted. I called on the 2nd day of our 4-day stay (didn't discover the TV wasn't working until after the office closed on the day of our check-in) & was told that they would check up & I didn't hear back. My mom called on the 3rd day & was told maintenance would stop by to fix it & nobody came. I called again on the 4th day & again was told maintenance would stop by &, again, nobody came. I called to request some kind of refund & was told that only 1 TV was guaranteed. However, on the description for 157 West online on the Turtle Bay Estates website, which I checked before our stay & confirmed after, 2 TVs are listed. Aside from the TV issue, I found the staff professional & the check-in & out process easy & fast. The fact that the office is off site & about 5-7 min. away by car is not convenient but not a reason to stay away. Overall, the place was relatively clean, neat &, with the exception of the bedroom TV, was well-furnished, including free wifi. Extra towels were provided, but no extra pillows. Usually the pictures provided make the room way nicer than it is, but the photo to the right looks almost exactly like our unit!
Barbara C. from antioch, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2014 A condo at Turtle Bay is a great place for a family to stay. We enjoyed the condo at 157 West. We would rent this unit again.
A guest from Barrell, Alaska does not recommend this property. Stayed for 9 days in January, 2014 The unit was nothing but old. Never been up dated with anything. You shculd be ashame of your unit. Not just the unit but the pool area the grill area so old. You need major remodel and upgrades... I will never stay there again.
Michael C. from Anderson Valley, Auckland recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2013 157 West was a great place for two couples to spend four days relaxing and touring the North Shore. This condo is not super modern but had all mod cons, was well maintained and very clean and comfortable. The Rentals staff were efficient and helpful. Dining out at the nearby golf club restaurant was a good experience too. Would recommend to others.
Glenn V. from Hyrum, Utah recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in September, 2013 We found Turtle Bay to be very relaxing and enjoyable. There was construction going on in the next condo which made one day so we couldn't visit or hear TV because of the noise. The location was beautiful.
Donald M. from Honolulu, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2013 Accomadtions were excellent. Everyone had lots of room in unit and it was very clean. Only problem was getting in the gate on the first day. The code did not work. But everything else was excellent.
A guest from Pullman, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2013 We had a great week golfing and playing on the beach. Our condo's location was great for both of those activities.
Reviewed by: Lan Q. does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012 Where to begin with this apartment...if you are looking for a nice place, this one isn't it. When I stepped into the apartment, there was a really musty smell that never disappeared even after opening all windows and doors, and we were there for 4 days! The carpets are really dirty, the curtains are old and dusty, there a major bug problem and we didn't even leave any food out, cockroaches in the bathroom even. I called management about the bug problem, and they offered to spray it again but I didn't want to do that with my 16 month old around. I needed the bathtub to bathe my baby but the hot water was really spotty when using the faucet to run water instead of the showerhead. The one thing that was nice about this place was that the location was close to turtle bay resort so we were able to get to a few restaurants nearby. But the location of this one apartment is further away from the resort, close to the highway. There are other apartments that are closer in which would be more ideal I think. All in all, we wound up forfeiting 2 nights and going to a nicer hotel because we couldn't change our reservations. This apartment would be a lot nicer if they made some updates to it. The beds were also not comfortable.
Keiana R. from Kaneohe, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2012 Had a great weekend with friends.The condo was nice and spacious for a group of 5. The condo provided everything we needed from cooking utensils, extra towels and we even threw a load of laundry in. The best part was the pool was 20 ft away where could bbq over there. Would recommend this condo to anyone. The only downfall is the a.c's are old and don't get very cold. In the living room was not the great where my friend that slept in the loft said it was to hot to sleep in there. Other than that everything else was perfect. Will go back again one day.
Aimee H. from Mililani, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 It's really dark in the loft area and no air unless the ceiling fan is on which it was really dusty. The tv in the upstairs bedroom didn't work. The shower in the upstairs bedroom is really hard (the water comes out stinging your skin). The room is really basic, maybe a little upgrade would be nice. My cousin stayed in the room right next door and it was way nicer and cleaner.
Karen T. from York Town, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2012 Our ninet days spent at the unit was a great escape, various family members were able to come and go making it a wonderful semi-reunion. We were able to explore the various attractions and eateries in the area without having to venture into "town". Very impressive unit, upgrades are tasteful and kitchen supplies were more than adequate.
THE PROPERTY WAS NICE AND QUITE, GROUNDS STAFF WAS HELPFUL,
A guest from Millilani, HI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2011 PRICE WAS RIGHT. POOL COULD HAVE BEEN CLEANED BETTER, HOT!HOT!HOT!, THE UNITS WERE VERY NICE BUT THE 3 AIR CONS COULD NOT DO THE JOB UNTIL NIGHT TIME. AND SOME UNITS ONLY HAD 2 AIR CONS. I'VE STAYED IN SIMILAR UNITS IN KIEHI MAUI DURING THE SUMMER THAT WERE COOLER.
A guest from Honolulu, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 I already took some time to write down my thoughts on the evaluation paper for the 2 rental units we occupied. I wish that those comments could be entered here so I wouldn't need to do this again.
A guest from Sherwood Park, AB recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in March, 2011 Wow, everything was great in our villa - 157 West. Clean and zero critters running in the villa which we have heard can be a problem in some villas. Kids enjoyed the pools - temperature was nice and warm! Thank you.
A guest from Santa Barbara, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2010 The office staff/security gaurds with the exception of the manager were obstructive, pompus and unhelpful. FYI check-in is miles from the property... The wedding was wonderful at the resort!
Great space, good location, nice development, more local info needed
A guest from Chicago, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2010 This 2 bedroom plus loft condo was more comfortable and spacious than the photos indicate. It looks out on the golf course and beyond that, the main road, which made it a bit noisy at times. We had visits from the local chicken flocks (moms with chicks) and doves; the former may have been fed in the past because they seemed ready to hop into our lanai if we opened the screen door. There are a number of big trees near the building, increasing privacy; we were treated to a 'dawn chorus' of birds every day, which I enjoyed. Everything was in working order; there are a few spots that need touch up painting. We had a few of those little bugs but they are really tiny--no need for panic. Next time I might choose a condo on the east side of the development, which could be quieter. The one real negative was that the management didn't leave any information about local restaurants (except for one restaurant menu), shopping (we had to ask to find out how we would buzz a restaurant delivery person into the vehicle gate, and had to ask around to find out that there's a Foodland a few miles away). A packet of materials like I've found in other condos would be a really helpful addition. It would also be nice to have wireless internet, because the laptop had to be 'tethered' to the modem, which was right beside the TV. If we rented again, we would know to bring a long internet connection cord. It's a brief walk to the public beach located beside Turtle Bay resort, and we enjoyed the outdoor restaurant there as well, and enjoyed the fact that we were paying half as much for five times the space of a resort room.
A guest from Honolulu, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 Had a very pleasant stay at this unit. Close to the highway it provided easy access to the nearby towns.Had many supplies like beach umbrellas and chairs which were nice to have.
Arthur V. from Mililani, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2010 When first entering the condo, I notice there were alot of lizard dodo on the floor. I swept the floor fast before my grandkids arrived.I didn't want the babies crawling on the dirty floor.The bad thing about a corner condo is there's no open window on the side where the dining table is located. There was a window but it was the kind that cannot open so the wind cannot flow through. The AC does not cool the entire condo esp. the loff. It is HOT up there. Shower head needs to change cause shower stings your back. Its not good for small children. We had our family reunion and we really enjoyed ourself. And I am sure we will have another reunion there again and we will rent condo 157 again.
David C. from Spanish Fork, Utah recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2010 We liked our experience at Turtle Bay - it would have been nice to have someone available to help with little problems, like the coffee maker didn't work, and there were little "sand fleas" all over the kitchen counters. We found a couple of cockroaches, but everything was clean. We had to check in late because of the tsunami, and the night guard was not very helpful. Mostly good experience and yes, we would stay there again. Beautiful location!

thomas d. from mililani, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2009 This vacation rental was a nice way for the family to get together and celebrate the 4th of july. With a great fireworks show from the nearby resort. I will definetly be staying here again next year.
Randy B. from Moses Lake, Washington recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2008 Very enjoyable stay at the Estates making the perfect vacation and plan on returning in the future. Thank You Randy
A guest from Fair Banks, Alaska recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2008 We were very pleased with our condo at Turtle Bay. It was just like the pictures we saw on-line. Very roomy, vaulted ceilings, 3 air conditioners, nice screened in lanai off the golf course. It was well stocked with dishes, towels,soaps and paper goods. Be ready for high grocery prices - but we loved being able to cook for ourselves and not have to eat out all the time. It was so nice to be close to the Polynesian Culture Center and not have to drive back to Waikiki. We even did the tour and visitor's center at the LDS temple. See the Joseph Smith movie - it was nice to understand some of the history of these people. It was great to have free access to the same beach the people at the resort use. We snorkled and saw lots of fish and a huge turtle! I would definitely reccomend 157 West. I hope I can go back again soon.
A guest from Twinsburg, OHIO recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2008 While we were happy with the general location (North Shore) and the overall accommodations, our condo had small ant-like bugs in the kitchen that if any amount of food was left out or in the sink, it would bring an onslaught of these creatures. We traveled with other families and they didn?t have this occur in their condos. We had to throw a good amount of food away because of it.
Property Manager Response:
No food can be left out....not even for 5 minutes....
A guest from Honolulu, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2008 We were pleased to have a condo with a/c in the bedrooms and the living room, since it got very hot during the daytime, and the nice newly renovated kitchen and bathrooms. Our extended family was in Kahuku for a wedding and two other condos units in the same development were rented, and ours was definitely the nicest.
Spent Thanksgiving here-this condo was no turkey---we loved it!
A guest from Waianae, HI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2007 Loved the unit! Screened porch on the golf course allowed us to watch to scenery, and the babies--kept them inside, and the unit cool. Loved the loft, too! Very well appointed, just bring clothes and your groceries! Agents were really helpful, wud definitely do it again.
