Our newly redesigned Beach Cottages offer you more than just a breathtaking view, you also enjoy a personal Cottage Host to assist you and ensure you have a memorable stay at Turtle Bay. Our Cottage Hosts know how to live it up, so we asked Host Brian Kennedy for his ultimate “Must do” list he shares with his cottage guests.
Have in-room dining on your cottage lanai when you wake up- Sit back, relax and enjoy your gorgeous surroundings. Somehow your freshly brewed latte tastes extra sweet with a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. What goes well with your latte? Brian recommends ordering his favorite from the menu: French Toast and Eggs with bacon.
Explore our trails that begin by the cottages- Take a walk past the stables over to Kawela bay and count how many Honus (sea turtles) you see along the way. One time Brian counted 5 turtle sightings during one stroll. Brians tip to spot them- You have to walk the coast line in front of the cottages to find them, they tend to show up more in the morning and evenings to feed on limu (seaweed). During the afternoon they tend to sunbathe along the shore in front of the cottages.
Hit The Point Sunset & Pool Bar for lunch and a drink- You are guaranteed to make a friend At The Point. Our bartenders can hook you up with the world’s best mai-tai as well as insider advice on the happenings of the North Shore. View The Point Menu.
Have an exclusive massage in your cottage - Nalu Kinetic Spa has a special menu, just for cottage guests. You don’t have to head to the spa, the massage therapists come to you.
To top the day have dinner at our Pa’akai- Brian’s favorite place to enjoy the sunset is at our fine dining restaurant, Pa’akai. Of course, the view isn’t the only thing that’s fine… the food is amazing! Brian recommends starting with the scallops and then enjoying the catch of the day followed with the haupia (coconut) checkerboard cake for dessert. Pa’akai also features a 5 course wine dinner. View Pa'akai's menu.
BONUS: Brian’s off-site recommendations: Nearby Haleiwa town has many great dining and lunch spots. Brian’s favorites are: Luibuenos, Haleiwa Joes, Killer Tacos, Konos, & Banzai Sushi.
