Nasty! But a little advanced prep will make it work!
A guest from Salt Lake City, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2016 This unit is usually one of the last ones to rent and with good reason The carpet is filthy and the roaches are a problem But if you come prepared you can make it work!Stop at Walmart by the airport and buy the following 5 items (1) 1 gallon of Clorox for each day are at the unit Roaches come up thru the drains Pour Clorox down all the drains (immediately upon arrival and every night) then plug the drain (the shower has no plug use duct tape) NEVER get in the shower before turning on the water. The second you turn on the water the roaches will run up your legs Have a shoe with you and turn on the water (BEFORE getting in the shower) and as the roaches come out of the drain smash them This is very traumatic for vegetarians! (2) Buy 10 cheap $3 bath towels These will be placed on the dirty carpet after you spray all the carpet with Ortho home defense max. (3) buy large garbage bags Keep suitcases off the ground and sealed in garbage bags so you don't bring your roach friends home with you!(4) 2 100 watt light bulbs The bedroom lamps have very low watt bulbs so you cant see the carpet or the roaches (5) Get roach traps, roach spray, and a perimeter spray like Ortho Home defense spray Spray this inside and outside the unit *** ALWAYS keep food sealed and in the frig *** If you cant tolerate the filth and roaches go immediately to the management office and tell them the place is uninhabitable and a heath risk and to relocate you! This unit is in a great area and has fantastic WiFi!!
A guest from Golden, CO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 The condo was in a great location, good lawn view from patio, etc. There was recent construction in adjacent condo and ours had not been deep cleaned to mitigate the accumulated grime. The patio, which is where we ate and sat most often, needed new table and chairs; existing is rusty. The screens are also rusty and falling out of tracks. Foot traffic in the above condo is not muffled by good insulation; if noise is an issue,try for an upper unit. General updating construction is occuring throughout the development and had we been there when the adjacent condo was being rehabbed, it would have been awful. I'm not sure if renters are informed if this is occuring nearby. You would be wise to check. The bed was comfortable, furishings were nice and kitchen fully outfitted. The pool was lovely. Access to the coast and trails is wonderful. Enjoyed our stay.
Turtle Bay Condos are always a great place to stay
A guest from Redding, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014 We have stayed at this location several times and always enjoy it. The unit was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The grounds are lovely.The only challenge with a downstairs unit is the renters upstairs. If you have "night owls" upstairs it can make it challenging to sleep.
A guest from Mountain View, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in April, 2014 This condo is obviously well-cleaned after each visitor and is bug free, but the carpet in the bedroom had stains on it and just didn't feel very clean (carpet in the tropics? why?). Some of the kitchen cabinets were loose and the sliding door for the patio was difficult to slide. Even with these imperfections, I would stay here again. The internet worked great, the kitchen was well-stocked, and everything else was fine.
A guest from Kailua, HI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2013 My husband and I satyed at 093 East for 5 nights during Christmas 2013. We almost left the day we arrived. The unit reeked of mold and mildew, esp. in the bedroom, the stained carpet and furniture were the worst. The dresser was unusable with its smell and cockroaches in the drawers. The curtains had holes and made "nails on a chalkboard" sounds when you opened or closed them. Only one of the two bathrooms was useable. The "Master Bathroom" shower was very small and in need of having the drain cover repaired. We tried only using the toliet in that bathroom because when you flushed the front bathroom toliet it made a high shreaking sound which I'm sure was heard by the neighbors. Both toliets were old with cracks on the tanks. The front bathroom's shower head and handles were vry rusty and the tub had rust flakes in it. The washer was also filled with rust flakes and sand. I spent about an hour claeaning it so I could use it. The outside patio area was also unusable with a holey screen and rusty fan and furniture. Because we live in Hawaii, and we wanted to have a peaceful holiday, we made the best of the situation by leaving the sliding doors open and using scented candles to mask the smell. The location was the saving grace and we spent most of our time out and about the resort, breathing the fresh ocean air. We have spent many vacations at Turtle Bay over the past 30 years. We highly recommend staying at the Turtle Bay Resort and experiencing all the treasures of the North Shore area but Not in this unit.
Katherine H. from Spokane, Washington recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2013 We like a low key vacation, and Turtle Bay Estates is a great condo in a great place that provides just what you need. We've stayed there many times.
A guest from Wall, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 12 days in April, 2013 We very much enjoyed out stay at this lovely condo at Kulima Estates at Turtle Bay. Only wished that there was a King Size bed. The breezes put me in a state of revery and relaxation. Would have liked the convenience of Barbeque-ing from our Condo. There are critters that live off of the pool-side BBQ, becareful. I would come back here again, and recommend it to many. Having two bathrooms was also a positive feature! Thank You for making my Hawaii 5-0 Birthday Vacation, a dream come true.
Larry M. from port alberni, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2013 This is a bottom floor unit. Beautiful place buy there was a 4/5 year old in the unit above us and it sounded like she was coming through the ceiling! I'm sure she was just playing as children do but there is no sound proofing between units. I wouldn't stay in bottom unit againg.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2009 We spent Thanksgiving here with our adult kids - beach, snorkeling, birdsong, places to explore. And, the Kahuku Grill hamburgers and shrimp truck were favorites, as well as the Palm Terrace buffet and Ola's at the resort. The whole experience was great.
Ann L. from Provo, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 30 days in December, 2008 We loved our month here and have recommended it to all our family -- 8 children and their families. Thanks for a most wonderful stay in Hawaii.
Quite satisfied and even surprised by the pleasures...
Edward H. from Los Angeles, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2008 Simple and comfortable without a hitch. Perfect for a small family or close friends. A short and pleasant walk to a beautiful and full service beach.
Arthur H. from Madison, NJ does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2008 The Estates at Turtle Bay have great pretensions as a luxury resort, but it falls far short of luxury. In general, our condo was showing its age, and was somewhat seedy and shabby. Cleaning was hit-or-miss, with soiled spots on the couch that stained my wife's pants. It is unheard of not to have a hair dryer available in a condo. Kitchen cabinets were literally falling apart, with doors that no longer could be closed. The screening on the back porch was falling apart. Other areas of the unit were simply dingy. The unit needs a thorough overhaul.
Property Manager Response:
This condo is being renovated.
Mary Ann S. from Vancouver,, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2007 We had a strong wind storm and power outage while we were there and wish the condo had had flash lights and candles. Neighbors were great and helped out --also wish the Cd player had worked as we brought some great music. We were there for the North Shore surfing and it seemed others were too --so we had fun even though we had to beg the resort for a flash light that was reserved for hotel, not condo users.
Patty S. from El Dorado Hills, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2007 We traveled for a destination wedding. We loved the condo. The furniture was appropriate, the location was perfect and we felt it was truly a relaxing vacation because we stayed at the condo instead of a hotel. It was nice having two bathrooms. We would stay in this condo again if given the opportunity to travel to Oahu again.
