Incredible accommodations and the most wonderful experience working with the Liotta family. Everything was simply perfect - from pre-trip communication to experiencing the actual unit. First rate and first class all the way. We have stayed all over the world and the Villa at Turtle Bay was fantastic. Thank you for such great service and we look forward to returning!
Lovely clean well kept villa in a fabulous location on the North Shore. Great amenities near by and incredible views.
Villa 203 is a dream! My family stayed here in March 2017 for spring break. We could not have asked for a better place to relax and enjoy time together. This villa is located right on Turtle Bay, with direct ocean front views, which we enjoyed daily during our stay. If I was going to pick one villa in Turtle Bay, it would be villa 203. This villa is positioned PERFECTLY. It is on the second floor facing directly to the ocean, which made it perfect for watching the whales that appeared daily during our stay. We could see them out in the ocean splashing and blowing water. This villa is close to the pool, but not close enough that we heard any bothersome noise. It also was close but not directly next door to the Roy's Restaurant (which was amazing and right on the beach). It literally was a one minute walk from our back door. The beach out front is very pretty, and we took some nice walks down the beach during our stay. Some beaches can get very crowded, but this one did not. There is a nice spot to swim and snorkel right in from of the villa. I could sit on the veranda with a glass of wine and watch the kids swimming.
Villa 203 is well appointed with SubZero/Wolf appliances. The décor is very nice with a Hawaiian flair. The three bedrooms were very nice and so were the two bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need. There were plenty of dishes and glasses for our large family (this is sometimes not the case in other places we have stayed). There were plenty of towels, both regular and beach towels (a nice touch not always included in rentals). The outdoor second floor patio provided beautiful views of the ocean and beach. We sat outside every single day reading or having a nice glass of wine. Additionally, the beach storage locker was AWESOME. My kids loved it and it was nice that we did not have to go out and buy stuff once we got there as we sometimes have to do. The locker was filled with snorkeling gear, boogey boards, ice chest for picnics, a beach umbrella (that actually worked), and a couple of Tommy Bahama beach chairs (we loved them so much we bought a pair of them when we returned home to Texas). My husband had to work a few hours during our trip, and the internet worked great the entire time we were there.
Once booked, everything was seamless from the beginning. We were emailed a confirmation, which contained contact information regarding gate codes, parking information, emergency contact information, storage locker, internet, grocery stores, surrounding amenities, operation of appliances, beach towels, restaurants, chefs and babysitters if wanted, directions from airport, restaurants, activities both on North Shore and around the island....basically, all the information for planning your trip is at your fingertips. I was able to make restaurant reservations in advance so when we arrived from Texas tired from traveling, we dropped our suitcases in the villa and walked across to the golf course for dinner at Lei Lei's, instead of having to cook, eat sandwiches or try to drive to find somewhere to eat; we also stopped at Costco on the way to the villa from the airport, booked a family photographer for beach photos and tried many of the recommended activities.
Turtle Bay and Villa 203 are in a perfect location. The North Shore is very relaxing compared to the hustle and crowds in Waikiki. We were able to drive to several beaches (Waimea beach was by far our favorite beach....the kids loved the jump rock and we all loved swimming and just enjoying the beautiful surroundings). Turtle Bay is also very close to Haleiwa, a great place for food, snow cones, shopping and art. The Dole Plantation is near, as well as the Polynesian Cultural Center. On the Turtle Bay property, you can book helicopter rides to tour the entire island. One of my sons opted out of deep sea fishing with the rest of the family, so I surprised him with a "doors off" helicopter ride, which we both loved! We walked from our villa across the property for the helicopter ride...no car transport needed. Again, Villa 203 is in the perfect spot...close to the action but not bothered at all by any noise.
Villa 203 at Turtle Bay is AMAZING! If you are lucky enough to book this particular villa, you will not be disappointed. It is obvious the owners care about this property...it shows, and I truly felt like I was at home during our stay. It was a perfect place to make many memories my family will always remember.
Very well maintained and comfortable. We loved the villa. Recommendations from the owners were very helpful. We had to come to Oahu so our daughter could go shark diving! This was the perfect location for access to much of Oahu. If we ever visit Oahu again this is where we want to stay. Thanks.
