However, we did have a couple of minor incidents. First, an obnoxiously loud (heard through multiple closed doors) air conditioning unit went unfixed for multiple days. A simple dusting of the some of the internal fans made a pretty big difference, but obviously that hadn't been done in many months. Secondly, the security alarm (while unarmed) began consistently chirping at 3 AM due to a low battery in the motion detectors. That took multiple phone calls over the course of an hour to resolve.
These aren't the most serious problems one might encounter on vacation, but just the same, they could have easily been avoided. The frustration was multiplied as we were forced to navigate the internal bureaucracy of HBH when seeking help. Divisions between the answering service, the maintenance crew, the owners, and other HBH reps resulted in a lot of finger pointing and unfulfilled promises of call-backs.
Overall, we probably would use a similar arrangement in the future - there's just some room left for improvement.
We had several initial issues, including ants everywhere, no cable, and power out of one area, leaving a smoke alarm in alarm. Most were resolved quickly by management. Air conditioning was good in common areas, but bedrooms were hot. There were two fans, which helped. But there are five bedrooms. A couple bamboo trees had fallen over in the yard, and the continuous traffic nearby was a bit noisy and made for a slow drive in and out.
Thank you very much this experience.

Pillow top bed were very comfortable!
The kitchen amenities are very minimal.
The unit is clean and spacious .
We left a list of things that needed to be looked after. Things like replacement of batteries in 4 smoke alarms that were dangling from ceiling. Addition of a flashlight or something for when power goes out.
A fresh coat of paint and yard maintenance are overdue.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The proximity to the beach is wonderful!
Manager Response: Aloha Sean, We appreciate your taking the time to write this great review. The "to do" list is now completed with the battery replacement suggestions. We hope you enjoyed your stay at this large duplex that rests across the street from the beach! We look forward to your next stay with us :) Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Aloha Vicki, What an accurate description of the area, activities, and home. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to your next visit :) Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
The house had many ants and management was great at providing us with spray. We ended up just putting most of our stuff in the fridge and co-existed with the ants. It didn't really bother us.
The double laundry system is NICE, especially with kids. The property was extremely clean with tons of linens, pots and pans, etc.
We hung out mostly in the brightest room with all the windows and a view of the water. And the AC units saved us. The week prior we stayed at a place without AC, and survived it. The AC made such a difference.
It is not a beachfront property but there are views of the ocean. I liked the fact that we didn't have too many bugs inside (the place we rented the first week, and payed double this rate, seemed to be full of bugs). The only downside was you could hear the traffic on the Kamehameha hwy. But to be honest, with a sound machine for the kids, it drowned it out pretty good. You're off of a private road so you have your own private lot and PARKING. Parking is so difficult to find and you have plenty of space! I liked how you can lock up the whole lot with the automatic car port sliding door.
In case you're wondering how close you are to the beach, from the property you can throw a rock and probably hit the sand. I'd say it's about 100 feet.
We will rent this again.
Manager Response: Aloha Katie, Thank your sharing your review about the Turtle Beach House. It is great to hear about your accurate description about the grounds and how much you and your family enjoyed the space. We do try to resolve all issues the best we can. We are happy to report that a simple treatment took care of the unwanted visitors. We look forward to hosting you again in the future! Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes

Manager Response: Aloha David, Thank you for taking the time to review Turtle Beach House 2. We too feel that this home is located in an amazing location next to turtle beach :-) We look forward to hosting you in the future.Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
There is a little card on the counter from the cleaning staff, inviting gratuities. However since we had been charged up front $200 for cleaning, and since we had to clean to feel comfortable staying there, and since we left the unit cleaner than it was when it arrived, we did not feel obliged to leave any tip. Negative comments aside, however, we loved staying there.
Manager Response: Aloha Jean, We are very glad to hear you are a return guest that is familiar with our policies and procedures. Turtle Beach is such a great location! We do offer for any guests to call our offices with any concerns as we are on island and truly care about your stay. All of our units do not allow pets of any kind. We offer for a cleaning crew to come if and clean any problem areas that were missed. Hawaii Beach Homes values your comments and will address and evaluate the upholstery issue. We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Turtle 2. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Aloha Eric, Thank you for taking the time to share you thoughts. Turtle 1 & 2 is home to an amazing beach. We look forward to hosting you in the future. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Mahalo and we hope to see you again soon! Hawaii Beach Homes
The beach house is spacious, well equipped and on great location.
We love it.
Manager Response: Awesome! Mahalo for your review, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: 'The unit is very spacious. We find that guests sometimes like to use the extra sun room, which is separate from the living room, as a third bedroom. We're happy you and you're family had a great time. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
Manager Response: Aloha Kristen, Yes, the unit is pretty spacious. In fact, we find that guests sometimes end up using the sun room, which is separate from the living room, as an extra bedroom. I apologize that no one got back to you right away. Our answering service usually contacts us immediately if it is an emergency, other wise, we receive after hour messages the next day. We are glad everything worked out and that you were happy with your stay at Turtle Beach House 2. Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes.
Only downsides - the location being on the main highway around the north shore can be very loud, car and motorcycle and police traffic go all night. But easy to ignore when you wake up and see the beautiful view from the lanai. Other downside, and maybe why it was so loud for us - we rented the upstairs, so no block from the road noise, but also had other people staying downstairs, and they did not think our 50s music sing-along was funny at 8pm. Not like in the hotels where you cant hear the person next door, just something to keep in mind.
We will be coming back here again for sure! Maybe next time bring more friends and rent the whole house :-)
Manager Response: Aloha Laura,Thank you for your review, the home being off the main coastal road does have it's downside. However, we've found that with the AC running the traffic noise can easily be drowned out. Definitely next time, bring more friends/family and rent the whole property, it would be ideal! Mahalo again, Hawaii Beach Homes.
Overall it was a great rental. I would recommend it.
Manager Response: Thanks Tobin Family, we are so happy both generations enjoyed themselves so much! Both your suggestions, labeling the lights and hanging swimsuit hooks, are very good. I have informed maintanance, thanks again.
Manager Response: We have ordered extra keys, thanks Michelle. Hope to see you again soon!Mahalo, Hawaii Beach Homes
