About Patricia O'Rorke
My husband Ted grew up on Oahu and has always loved the beauty and aloha of the North Shore. When he took me to Turtle Bay to meet his family, I fell in love with it too. We purchased this lovely condo shortly before our wedding on Kuilima Point. Since then, we have had many happy times here with our family, friends, children, and grandchildren. Ed still surfs on the Phil Edwards longboard I gave him for a wedding present. We both love swimming, snorkeling, hiking, and browsing the art galleries and shops. We also like to visit the Polynesian Cultural Center and see the spectacular evening show there every year. At the end of the day, we walk down to Kuilima Point to watch the sun set before having dinner at one of the nearby restaurants or at home. We enjoy the area's fine restaurants, but we also love the little cafes and lunch trucks where it is easy to meet people. On Sundays, we attend Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church at Waimea, and stay to visit with the parishioners. Everything is so close to the condo that we always have a relaxing vacation here.
There is so much to see, do, and learn on the North Shore that cannot be found in the standard guidebooks to Oahu that I wrote a guidebook myself. The title is 'Oahu's North Shore, A Guide To Its Treasures And Beauties.' Ted took all the photos and created the maps while I researched and wrote the 355-page text. Get a free copy of the Guidebook with a stay of one week or more.

Why Patricia O'Rorke chose Kahuku - Turtle Bay
The condos at Kuilima are by far the nicest place to stay on the North Shore. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and impeccably maintained. There are 3 swimming pools, tennis courts, and barbecue and picnic facilities. We have 24-hour security and a nice, quiet environment. From our lanai, we have a lovely view of the golf course and Koolau mountains, with a little lawn where children can play safely when we come back from the beach. The condo is situated perfectly to catch the trade winds, so although we have air conditioning we never use it because the tropical breeze is so pleasant. We can walk to the beach, stables, restaurants, and other facilities of the Turtle Bay Resort. At the same time, we can get to the beaches, restaurants and shops on the North Shore and Windward Shore in just a few minutes. The location is ideal.
What makes this condo unique
We remodeled the entire condo several years ago and spared no expense. The kitchen has lovely maple cabinets, silestone counters, and GE Profile appliances. We installed a gorgeous travertine floor in the living, dining, kitchen, and lanai. The bathrooms are also travertine, and there is a spa tub in the downstairs bath. The living room furniture is top-grade Lazy Boy upholstery. Hawaiian art decorates all the rooms. It is a very pleasant place.

I just wanted to tell you how much we are enjoying out stay here in #161.... We have a family reunion next year in July and would like to come back to the same place.
I am going to ask to stay here again. We loved it and hope to stay for 3 weeks this time. I have stayed in the condos at least 7 times and yours was the best one.
