  • Oldie but Goodie - Hope to Be Back

    "This is not a new place - but it is very clean, comfortable and well stocked. Everyone at the condo is very friendly and it is a family friendly beach (safe swimming). We are a family of 4 (with 22-year and 17-year old girls). The view from the deck is great, the other visitors/residents at the complex (many have been coming back for years) were nice, and we loved the town of Haleiwa (albeit it was more crowded during the day than expected). There were snacks avail in refrigerator upon arrival, and kitchen was stocked with spices, etc. There were a few quirks - the blinds rattle in the wind at night, a few bugs, and some nearby construction - but overall the good far outweighed these minor issues."

  • The ocean views, crashing waves and sea breezes make this place!

    "Our 10 days flew by too fast. We were going all the time, but just hanging out on the deck during meals and early mornings and late evenings was one of the coolest things about this house. We cranked open the windows the whole time we were there and had breezes coming through all day long. It only rained a couple of times for a short time and we just had to catch those windows, but it was pretty comfortable for our mid-October stay. And if you had air conditioning, would you really shut the doors and windows and miss out on all those crashing waves and ocean breezes. No way! Each bedroom has a private bathroom and it worked great for our group. Two married children and their spouses and small children, my wife and I and my 87 year old mother who came along to revisit hear roots in Oahu. Everyone had their own space. It's a big house. Plenty of room. The custodians do a good job keeping the house clean. It's blasted by salt air 365 days a year, so alot of window fixtures and the back sliding door lock need some work, but it sounded like they were going to look at the back door at least soon. Either way, it wasn't a problem for us and the neighborhood seems safe. After all the traveling around the island we did, I think our favorite places were walking and snorkeling off the private beach down the stairs a few houses down the street on the south or riding the waves on the north side of the point with access just a block away by the road the heads to the Temple and up the beach to Hukilau Beach Park. Having the Temple and the PCC right across the street was great. Foodland is right across the street. And pick up a tour permit for the hike to Laie Falls in the strip mall by the grocery store. The trail head is up the road just on the North end of town. Gets a little slick and tricky right near the falls, but it's a beautiful hike! VR is very helpful in planning your stay. He was very accomodating and attentive to our questions. Thanks for sharing your house with us."

  • Beach Front, Sunsets and Turtles Oh My!

    "We are all about beach front location. Everything else is secondary. Craig ‘s place delivers big time. It doesn’t get any better! Craig is very laid back and it reflects in his condo. He is all about chill’n and having a good time not aesthetics. If you are looking for fancy décor and granite countertops don’t stay here. If you love the ocean and hanging on the beach this is your place. Craig provides everything you need to enjoy the sand and water, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, beach chairs etc.. We could not get enough of sitting on the lanai with the binoculars (thanks Craig for providing a pair) looking for turtles, watching surfers and paddle boarders. Lots of places advertise seeing turtles and swimming with turtles, Craig’s place is the only place we stayed where this actually happened, not once, but daily! So, do we recommend this place? YES!! The condo is clean and well stocked. The complex is quiet. The beach is secluded. The location is a perfect launching point for touring the famous surf beaches of the North Shore. Skip the Waimea farmers market. It is touristy, no deals here and very little produce. Do take the time to drive to Honolulu to the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet. You can get all your souvenirs at a reasonable price and if you forgot your water shoes for swimming around the reef, you can get them here for $10! If you have a late afternoon flight, stop at Palazzos Italian Restaurant (about 10 minutes from the airport) for an awesome Italian meal to top off your trip to paradise."

USS Arizona Memorial: Visitors can immerse themselves in World War II and the attack at Pearl Harbor with a visit to the the USS Arizona Memorial. 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.
