  • Perfect! Recommend!!

    "We had a wonderful week!! We had everything we needed to complete our comfort during the stay even an extra blanket that I requested. They were very assessable via text, phone and being close enough if had needed to, we could have dropped in. They gave us a heads up to remind us about trash day(s) and even when a neighbor had something going on which would block the road for a short period of time, they let us know ahead of time. (text) We felt we had the privacy we needed and enjoyed the personalized note with tips and information of the area. I might add that I personally appreciated the wash rags NOT being white. This was our second trip and the first trip at another place went well but after our return home we had received an email about having used a white wash rag to remove make up being stained......... I looked prior..... all 6 washrags were white. I rinsed them but wondered about that.... that small detail was the only reason we didn't return to previous place to rent again on our second trip. We loved this studio. We would like to go again, in the next couple years, with a few of our kids and will look to rent their larger place when we do!! The area was secure. We LOVED being on the beach! What a beautiful location!!! I might suggest a solid curtain in the kitchen. :D Just so one doesn't have to hang a towel. :D If our talents got out we would have to loose our day jobs and we're not ready for that. ;) Mahalo!!"

  • Didn't want to leave!

    "My wife, brother, and mother stayed in this bungalow for a week. Needless to say, I wish I was still there. This place is not on the beach, it's waterfront. Your backyard is the ocean. There is a wall separating the backyard from the ocean! Waves crash up against it and spray into the backyard. Pictures do not do this place justice. It is incredible! The North Shore of Oahu is a relaxing place. But staying at a resort is for tourists. If you want to do it right, this property is what you are looking for. We were away from the crowds, in the most peaceful of areas. The bungalow is exceptionally clean. There is a full kitchen, two bathrooms, and almost every room is equipped with ocean views. And if that's not enough, there are boogey boards, snorkel gear, water shoes, sunblock, beach towels, etc. You name it, they already thought of it and you have it at your disposal. Darcelle is the owner of the property and she will make sure you have everything you need during your stay. She greeted us upon arrival and told us just about everything that we needed to know. She is very sweet and accommodating. Thanks Darcelle! Do yourself a favor: skip the resorts, book a stay at Darcelle's bungalow, stay for as long as you can and enjoy this beautiful home away from home. I want to live here permanently, but I don't think Darcelle will let me. :) Mahalo!"

  • Can't wait to come back! Peaceful, personable, perfect

    "On a "girls'" trip (my first time to Oahu and first time using VRBO), my friend was really focused on beachfront houses - but Dotty & Peter's property ended up being one of our very favorite places of our whole trip! Trust me, *do not skip this beautiful location just because it isn't right on the water*. You are as close to amazing beaches as you'd be anywhere (5 minutes by car), plus the safety and privacy of being just a few minutes (literally) up the hill. The owners are super kind, engaged and on-site; only there if you need them, but so refreshing to know that it wasn't simply a turn-key property; it's well looked after and cared for, as are their guests. This was truly one of our best stays on Oahu, and I'd book it again in a heartbeat. You're up on the hill/mountain side, but I didn't expect such gorgeous ocean views or that we would be just as close to the North Shore's great beaches as we were in other "beachfront" rentals where we had to hop in the car to get to a swimmable beach anyway! We stayed in the Hibiscus Suite which I expected to be small but was in fact very breezy and super-spacious, immaculately clean, with gorgeous terra cotta tile floors, wonderful ceiling fans and a full kitchen, plus two rooms with lovely beds. It was just my friend and I, but it would be wonderful for traveling couples or a family. There's even a washer/dryer! Wow. We didn't use it, but astounding; if I were traveling with a family, that would be a godsend. The screened porch/lanai was huge, beautiful and relaxing; when we arrived, we actually skipped going to more beaches just to stay and read and enjoy the scenery and fresh air. I wasn't initially sure about the location and expected to be far up in the hills away from the ocean, but that's not what this is at all - in 5 minutes, you can be on the most beautiful beaches on the whole island. Dotty and Peter were available if you needed them, friendly, accommodating, and promptly returned our security deposit. Communication was excellent all the way through our rental experience from start to finish (this is my first time renting through VRBO) and I can't wait to bring my husband back to this magical place! Thank you for the beautiful stay and your kindness, Dotty and Peter - I look forward to returning!"
