                            2 Adults & 2 Teens made this great value rental our home for the 2nd. time. We love the North Shore. It is so laid back compared to Honolulu. Our kids are big fans of LOST, we visited the beach set for LOST, along with the "OTHERS" camp, which are all nearby. My wife and daughter even ran into John Locke (Terry ODonell) at the local Starbucks one morning. There are so many beaches to choose from on the North Shore, some almost deserted. The rental was perfect for us. everything that you would expect to be supplied is there and even some extras, such as coffee beans from John's coffe shop in Haleiwa. We went on many day trips, and took in many of the sights and activities available on the Island. We had to make daily visits for shaved ice in Haleiwa! Can't wait till our next visit to Oahu!

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sightseeing, adventure seekers, families with young children, age 55+.

                            Owner response: Wow! Thank you for the great comment. North Shore is a very special place.

                            The unit was maintained very well. Nice and clean with everything we needed and very close to the beautiful Waimea Bay. It was the highlight of our holiday to get away from busy Waikiki. We will definitely come back, maybe next time we will hire the whole place :) Mahalo Donna for your hospitality.

                            Owner response: Aloha and Mahalo for your stay with us. So glad you were able to get away from Waikiki and enjoy the country life. Let us know when you will be making a return and lets see about getting you the whole house for your stay. As always, a pleasure to have wonderful guests.

                            The listing was a little misleading as you can just barely see the ocean from the property on the first floor. There are a lot of other houses blocking your view. The only way you can walk to the beach is to walk down a very busy road for about half a mile, no direct route. You can hear the upstairs guest very easily. No A/C. The afternoon sun comes in the big front windows and it gets very hot inside, the ceiling fan helps but not much. The bedrooms were stifling hot and hard to rest due to the heat. A window A/C would help greatly. Great locatiion for all the beaches of North Shore if you don't mind driving a little. Snorkeling was great at all the bays. A beautiful view if you walk along a small trail to the bluffs over the ocean but no access to the ocean. I think there are probably locations for viewing the ocean than this property.

                            Owner response: Aloha and Mahalo for the review. We hope you had a nice time in the home during one the hottest months of the year here in Hawaii which is why we provide fans for the rooms to help keep it cool for all the guests. Maybe we should purchase and supply 2 fans per room in the future hot summer months. Thanks for the comments on the trees in the neighbors yard, we will ask them if they can trim their trees to allow a better view of the water for our guests. We are glad you were able to see all the wonderful beaches the north shore has to offer. All comments help to make this one of the north shores most rented property. Again, Mahalo.

                            This was an excellent place for our family of four. Quiet neighborhood, good location, comfortable and clean. We will definitely be going back!! The upstairs is gorgeous too, we got to take a peek our last day and would love to stay up there next time. Go see uncle Bryan if you want to surf, they were professional and kind. Thanks to all the wonderful people on the North Shore. Can't wait to go back!

                            The best thing about this place was its perfect location on the North Shore. Accommodations were clean, but worn. Toaster, D/W and laundry facilities all sub-par. We felt mislead about the number of people staying in the unit. There were two people staying in a converted (laundry?) room behind our bedroom, and 7 people staying above our own 4-6 person unit. We heard every footstep and sneeze. The price was great and perhaps we overestimated what our accommodations would be. I have rented with vrbo a dozen times before this and felt, for the first time, mislead. Owners intentions seemed good, and working with Cacia was a pleasure.

                            My husband, baby (15 months) and I stayed here for one week during early September 2011 and we really enjoyed the house. The kitchen had everything that we needed and combined with the grill on the lanai, we ended up cooking at the house every night. We walked to Waimea Bay every time, since the parking lot was always full. However, it wasn't ideal walking with an infant on such a busy highway. But, luckily the walk was short, and it would not be a big deal at all with adults walking to the beach. The only complaint I have was that during part of our stay, the upstairs house had about six people staying there and we could hear everything. From people walking, so talking, to the music playing. It sounded like people were stomping upstairs every time they walked! Since we had our baby taking naps and going to sleep pretty early, we had the fan blasting in his room to cancel out some of the noise upstairs. But even so, it was a little annoying that we could hear so much above us. Overall though, this place was a great place to stay for one week. If we come back, I think we'll try to rent the house upstairs instead!

                            Nice rental, exactly as described and pictured. Comfortable beds and plenty of room for 4 people. Kitchen has everything you might need. The washing machine and dryer are in a small structure on the backside of the building and are shared with anyone else who might be renting the top half. We used the washer and dryer a few times and had absolutely no problems. No air conditioning, not a problem. We were out doing activities during the day and at night slept with the windows open and fans on and we were all comfortable (stayed in early July). DO NOT MISS - Breakers restaurant, Pizza Bob's, & Haleiwa Joes all in Haleiwa. Giovanni's shrimp truck, Haleiwa or Kahuku. Try a half order of scampi and a half order of Hot-n-Spicy, Eat here daily. Man Its Good!! Kahuku super sweet corn on the cob from one of the vendors along the North Shore or buy some fresh, soak in water for 20 minutes still in the husks, cook on the grill and enjoy! Matsumoto's and Aoki's shave ice in Haleiwa, both delicious. Be sure to get with ice cream in the bottom, you won't regret it. For best results, be sure to eat at least 1 shave ice per day, you'll thank me later. Hawaii Shark Encounters- Unique activity, friendly staff and an awesome time! Kualoa Ranch 2 hour ATV ride. Not an extreme adventure but tons of fun, unforgettable experience & one of the most beautiful places on earth. John M., Rogers Ar.

                            My wife, 15 year old son and I spent two weeks in Carolyne's house over Christmas/ New Years 2010/11 and we had an absolutely wonderful stay! It rained a fair bit this year, but there was also lots of sun and I can't think of a better place to have spent our time. The house is great - clean, well appointed and as close to home as anyone could ask for. There are lots of good books, games and the bikes/beach toys made our daily trips to Waimea Beach (5 minute walk) a major fun experience! This property is DEFINITELY THE BEST VALUE ON THE NORTH SHORE for a family experience that you will ever find. If you're going to go book soon, there's a lot of demand for this property.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          Why the Owner Chose Waimea Bay:
                          Waimea Bay has some of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Oahu. It is great for snorkeling in the non-winter months. Jump rock is great fun for the brave. The water is so clear and beautiful. The beach is very large and most of the bay is a sand bottom. There are few buildings around. Waimea Bay has a peaceful country feel.
