William , the boys and I just like to say THANK YOU and that we have a WONDERFUL stay at the North Shore vacation rental in Punaluu .
The Waimea was perfect for us. It was clean quiet and decorations were so welcoming.
There were no crowds and just peaceful, private and relaxing. We loved the Lanai and made sure we ate breakfast outside so we can enjoy the views.
It was so nice to be able to see the BEAUTIFUL PICTURESQUE view while I am cooking too.
We enjoyed the private beach, the green scenery which only had few people sunbathing. The water was so blue and the waves were calm safe and relaxing. We loved it!
This was a PERFECT safe location and our place was close to EVERYTHING. So close we got to try the peanut butter desert at Papa Ole's and Giovanni's Shrimp Truck.
The ride from our rental along the Kamehameha Hwy was beautiful and so green. It was breathtaking.
It was also nice to to go to the Waikiki but nothing COMPARED to DA Country A wonderful place to stay away from the city.

"pretty looking unit .. but good location, good view, very responsive and reasonable owner. North shore, much more beautiful than honolulu or waikiki. Good places to eat nearby. Laei point and nearby beaches are awesome. Will surely come again. The snorkeling and surfing equipment is a great bonus !."

"We spent almost 2 weeks here and found it to be perfect for us. The view from the 6th floor is fantastic (sunrises every morning and 1 incredible full moon rising at night). Before the trip, Lisa was a pleasure to communicate with very helpful. We were fortunate to meet her one day too...a very nice surprise.
After arriving at the condo parking lot, a friendly security person helped by showing us where the key was located (and how to open the box) and gave us directions to the local market (Tamura's) a few miles away. (Lisa also told us about Papa Ole's near Tamura's....very good food!) The condo was very clean and everything thing you'll need for preparing your own meals (and much more) is available. And the fridge has a nice supply of condiments and seasonings to get you started.
The reason we liked the location was because it's away from the crowds and city traffic. But, everyone will need to realize that, if you want to play tourist and see the Oahu sites and attractions, you're going to be driving a distance for them and you'll likely be in traffic. But that's the situation wherever you stay on Oahu if you want to travel around the island.
Recommendation for a nice beach we found by accident is Sherwood Forest (Kalanianaole Hwy in Waimanalo (look for the gate across from the Honolulu Polo Club).
We highly recommend this property!"

"What a wonderful getaway! We had a similar experience to one of the other guests whereas our original trip was delayed due to 2 hurricanes passing over the Hawaiian Islands last August. Kathy was quick to offer us a full refund and the best of luck with whatever our alternative honeymoon plans ended up to be. Luckily, earlier this month, we were able to take the missed trip and rebook with Kathy. The house was quaint and charming and full of comfort items. Plenty of linens and towels and fun gear for picnicking, the beach or any other outdoor getaway we choose. The kitchen was fully equipped for making meals of any size which we made good use of along with the spotless grill out on the patio. We felt welcomed and comfortable as soon as we arrived by the basket of fresh fruit, beautiful flower arrangements and the fixings for the best cup of coffee we have ever had. Though its true the traffic can be heard the beautiful ocean view and tropical landscaped yard seems to help that aspect seem like a small issue. The Shrimp Shack and Keneke's are both in walking distance and have excellent food! They both offer very unique dining experiences and if you have a car North Shore Taco's is worth the 10 minute drive north. If we are ever blessed enough to get back to Oahu we will be looking to book with Kathy & Blue Ginger!"
