Slice of paradise!
"My husband and I stayed in Kay's studio for 10 days. The backyard area with views of the ocean turned out to be our favorite location, absolutely beautiful. We watched the sunset on the ocean and whales breach daily from the little deck in the backyard. There is easy access to the beach. It feels fairly secluded with some people enjoying the beach, but it never became crowded while we were there. A short walk away are more popular beaches with people surfing and snorkeling. We stayed in the winter making the waves more intense then they are in the summer months, so it is recommended people swim with caution or have some experience. Also within walking distance using the bike path is a Foodland grocery store with everything you may need and some food trucks. A short drive away is the little surfing town of Halewai with shops and places to eat. Between the studio and Haleiwa is a beach that you may get to see turtles resting on the sand or swimming. Traffic along the highway can get busy depending on the time of day due to the popular locations in between Haleiwa and the studio. We were told by one local that it isn't as busy in the summer months. The studio itself was very clean and well maintained. The size was comparable to a motel room with a double bed, bathroom, small refrigerator, and small kitchenette. Perfect for one or two people. There is no ocean view from the studio, but you can hear the ocean waves. It is just a short walk to the other side of the house to be in the gorgeous backyard. There are beach chairs, snorkeling gear, a cooler, beach towels, etc., all available for guests to use. Kay herself is an amazing and gracious woman! She was always extremely helpful, but gave us our privacy. If we stay in Oahu again, we now will only stay at Kay's slice of paradise! We highly recommend the studio, and even Kay's house for anyone wanting a peaceful, beautiful getaway. Kay, thank you for sharing your home with us!"

"Me and my husband stayed here for 3 nights when we visited the north shore. Right from the get go, George and Kathy were so helpful and nice, George recommended places to eat, surf, snorkel and tour. The space was so clean and well taken care of, we loved the balcony to have our morning coffee on. They supply bikes, snorkel gear, boogie boards and beach chairs. It is in the perfect location, the beach is a 2 minute walk across the street, and very close to foodland, the coffee bean, and numerous food trucks. We spent a lot of time at sharks cove (5 min walk) and watched the sunset on sunset beach, which we drove to and it took 3 mins. Definitely will recommend this place, and will stay again when we visit!! mahalo george and kathy!!"

"I have to say that the stay at Hale Pono was better than I anticipated it would be. The home is spectacular and as nice or nicer than the pictures depicted. I have rented many beach homes in Hawaii, and this one was perfect for our family of 8 people. I look forward to renting again in the future!!!"

"This house was everything promised and more. It was spacious, clean and had all the amenities of home. Great location, close to the beach and restaurants on the beautiful North Shore. Our family had a terrific time and there was plenty of room for all 9 of us. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We would definitely recommend to all of our friends and family!"
