Clean and tidy condo and the location is excellent. Rapid support when we needed to fix a couple of things (light bulbs, trash bags). Decor is dated and kitchen supplies a bit limited (e.g. wine glasses, teaspoons, small plates)
We found the stay wonderful. The condo is spacious, clean and well stocked. The beach gear was very handy to go down to the beach at Turtle Bay and snorkel and build sand castles. The surrounding North Shore area provides lot of excursions then relaxing can be had by the pool or down out the beach. It was also nice to walk around the surrounding trails. Beth was very helpful and prompt in answering any inquiries and even arranged to have a parcel waiting for me that a friend had sent via their office from mainland US. We would definitely stay here given a chance in the future.
My wife, kids and I had a great time in the unit. It was big enough for all of us and we loved the location next to the pool. I very nice getaway location.
Although the unit seemed old it was well kept and the wood floors and countertops added to the cottage charm of the place. It was very clean when we arrived, plenty of amenities such as towels, dishes, beach gear, TV's etc. I will have to say the unit is NOT located as shown on the map on VRBO. This is not a ocean view or near ocean location, which is one of the reasons we selected this unit. Not sure who fixes that but the map should show where the unit is actually located. Also initially getting into the unit was a fiasco. The security gate intercom system didn't work, and the security guard was unwilling to let us through. Even called the property manager in front of us and proceeded to berate her. I was not impressed with the security guard. Property manager did a great job in getting it resolved. Security needs to fix the intercom system. We also enjoyed the amenities of the resort. Roy's restaurant on the beach is a MUST try place. The food and service was second to none. They treated us well. And finally the beach was wonderful. Very protected and plenty of sea life to see in the water. Lots of surfers to watch also. Overall a wonderful area!
While this is an older unit, our family was very comfortable here and all of our basic needs were met. We enjoyed being close to one of the pools and took advantage of some of the amenities at Turtle Bay (restaurants, and adventure center). The property managers were responsive when needed and we definitely enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property for the price.
What a great time we had in Hawaii! I wish I could say the same about the townhome we rented (137W). I'll start first with the positive and then comment on the opportunities. From a positive perspective this townhome is located on the golf course and within a few steps of the pool. The person we dealt with (Stu) was very responsive to our needs although solutions left a lot to be desired. Also what a pleasant surprise when we were contacted by a concierge who helped us set up all our activities for our stay. This is where the good stops....Now lets talk about the condo itself. Wow, honestly I've stayed in 50.00 a night motels that seemed like 5 star resorts compared to this townhouse. We were so disappointed upon walking in that we actually considered just switching to a hotel and chalking up the money we spent for this townhouse as a learning experience. The townhome was dirty, flooring all over the home had come undone and was popping up all over. There were ants in the cupboards, sink and counters (Stu came the next day and laid out ant bait). We were relying on the sofa couch for one of our children but upon opening it up, it was seriously the worst mattress I've ever seen! The mattress was all springs!! When we contacted Stu he was quick to respond and brought us a futon mattress. Now you would think this was great right? Well, the futon mattress seriously looked like it has been found on the side of the road somewhere. It was disgusting! We stayed at Turtle Bay at the advice of some of our friends. These are very old townhomes which many have been totally updated, however, this one still felt like I'm sure it did when it was built in the 1970s. It was disappointing to think how much we spent to rent this, how much I'm sure these townhomes cost and the fact that the owners have done little to nothing to make it a nice place to stay. The townhome smelled like must, the linens were old and smelly etc. I think you get the picture. Bottom line, this townhome is not equipped to be rented. It needs some serious updating, cleaning, repairs etc. It also needs someone who is going to take serious what it means to rent out a place to people on their vacations. To bring us a mattress that looked like it was picked up on the side of the road, think that anyone could sleep on a sofa mattress that had nothing but springs to it, find a home dirty and not well kempt is not acceptable and has not been our experience with other places on VRBO.
WELL IT IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN THE PHOTOS...............NOT AS WARM AND COZY WITHOUT THE PLANTS AND SOME OF THE DECOR AND FURNITURE IS DIFFERENT..........LOCATION WAS GOOD..CLOSE TO THE POOL.........BEACH....SNORKELING..........IT WAS STOCKED PRETTY WELL........A BIG PROBLEM FOR US IS THERE WAS NO DECENT BBQ'S TO COOK ON........AND WE BBQ NIGHTLY WHEN ON VACATION...........COULD HAVE USED A FEW MORE TOWELS.....TOILET PAPER.........SOUPS..........CLEANING SUPPLIES..........WE RENTED 3 UNITS THIS TRIP AND BOTH OF THE OTHER 2 UNITS WAS STOCKED MUCH BETTER THAN THIS UNIT..........ALSO...........IT WASN'T THE CLEANEST..........SIZE AND LOCATION WERE GREAT...........JUST NEEDS A BIT OF SPRUCING UP AND.............. BETTER STOCKED............IT ADVERTISES AIR CONDITIONED BUT THERE IS A WALL UNIT IN MASTER AND PORTABLE UNIT UPSTAIRS....WE HAPPENED TO BE THERE DURING A HOT PERIOD AND THE MAIN LIVING AREAS WERE TOO HOT TO ENJOY WITHOUT ANY AIR CONDITIONING...........
