  • Ideal Location, Incredible House

    "This is an incredible find. Especially after walking the beach both north and south and seeing many homes of lesser quality and location, this is a real gem. First the big picture: the location couldn't be better for watching the surf/surfers, whales breaching, turtles and sunsets. The house is newly renovated and absolutely comfortable, lovely and airy. I'd return here any chance I could get. Details: the location is ideal on the water, but also in terms of North Shore proximity. Haliewa is a few miles south, Waimea Bay a few miles north. Easy to get up to Turtle Bay for dinner, golf, spa or around the bend to Kahuku and beyond. Or, easy access to Haliewa and restaurants as well as west to skydiving/glider port. Also, the house is just a touch off the Kam Hwy., so it's fairly easy to pull off to open the gate without getting run over. Very safe and private. The house is such a stunner, decorated in a cool/contemporary surfer theme. Nice, comfortable space offers lots of room for a large party to gather or individuals to find privacy. A whole wall of glass opens up the kitchen/great room to the ocean (screens are good too--bugs do tend to gather in the dusk). Three bedrooms could be considered master suites with en suite bath and king beds, and the other two bedrooms are great as well. The kitchen is fully equipped with lots of dishes, pots & pans, glasses, granite countertops, and lots of room for lots of sous chefs to be helping the prep work. We were an extended group of seven people ranging in age from 22 to 88, and the house fit all our needs. We could easily have had more people in the house and not felt cramped. There's also a side apartment you can rent if you need more beds. A wonderful home in a beautiful place."

  • Fabulous Hawaii Vacation!

    "We had a wonderful week at the Plumeria House for our family of five. Fully equipped kitchen with washer and dryer just downstairs. A great setting on north shore, just a few short steps up to the private gate beach access. Beach chairs, bikes, and beach equipment were all available for our use. Centrally-located on the north shore, this home is a great base of operations for exploring all around the area. The local Foodland is just minutes away, which is very handy. The surf is powerful at this beach, so it's not a great place for small children or those not comfortable in heavy surf. The geckos surprised us as well, but you get used to seeing them around. Only minor complaint was the wireless Internet, which was hit-and-miss at best. Highly recommend for anyone with teenagers or tweens."

  • A great house for a relaxing stay on the North Shore

    "Plenty of room for a family of four. Everything worked great and was as advertised. The view over the ocean from the front of the house meant a great sunset view from the porch every night. The beach in front is rocky and not worth swimming, mostly because there are nice sandy beaches so close. But we saw sea turtles swimming pretty much all day every day. Sunset beach is just two miles away, and the beach next to Turtle Bay is just a mile or so north. Dozens of other amazing beaches line the coast in either direction. Being there in the summer meant that we could swim and snorkel in any of them. Keep in mind that this area is kind of the opposite of Waikiki: quiet and remote. Most restaurants are “food trucks” or shacks. Yummy, though. The town of Haleiwa is where you can go for some restaurants and most activities (surfing lessons, kayaking, ocean excursions, etc.). The shrimp shack restaurants in Kahuku are another option, especially if you like shrimp. We hit some places in Laie too. As others have noted there is some noise from the traffic passing by on the road, and you will see tiny lizards in the house occasionally. That didn’t bother us. That’s just part of living on the North Shore. We recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in this area."

  • What an amazing wonderland

    "How lucky we feel to have discovered your little bit of paradise! Our 4 and 6 year olds had the time of their lives snorkeling with turtles, swimming, and jumping (small) waves in your protected cove. The beach was empty most days, and we loved the easy access to town. The house was better furnished than any we've ever stayed in, including everything from taco spice to reef shoes. We were never without a thing, but if we had needed anything I am sure Robert would have taken care of it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Best vacation ever."

The sunken ship remains underneath the Pacific surface, and guests can travel through a bridge floating above the ship to get an up-close look of the effects the attack had, which eventually led to direct U.S. involvement in the war.
