Overall great experience with this rental. Patrick was very professional in promptly responding to any questions, and being available when we checked in late at night. I have a 4 and 7 year old and this condo was very family friendly. A heated pool (a rarity in my experience) sits right outside the door. The turtle bay resort is about 10 minute walk from the condo. We rented bikes for most of our trip which makes getting to the resort even easier. We had a few cruiser bikes, a kid bike and a kid carrier that we loaded with all the provided beach toys, cooler and my 4 year old each day. There are some cool beaches north and south of the resort if you are searching for some peace and quiet.
There are plenty of good and reasonable priced food options north and south of Turtle Bay. We stocked up at foodland in Haleiwa (the place to shop if you want liquor).
I was wondering how accessible the ocean would be in the winter on the north shore and was pleasantly surprised. There are plenty of big waves in the area but also sheltered bays where snorkeling and swimming are safe. I also got surf lessons for myself and my 7 year old son in Haleiwa where the waves were easy and forgiving for beginners. My son caught the first wave he attempted and many more.
The condo has everything you need and we felt right at home. It was plenty cool with the breeze and the fans even for Alaskans.
