Beautiful and Cared For
"Before this is the second vacation home I have ever stayed at, and I wasn't sure what to expect. This beautiful place exceeded all my expectations, the home is not only well cared for, but cared for with love, and it comes across in all the 'like home' details. Being able to use the ocean toys, laundry that you don't have to pull out a pile of quarters for, seasoning you can use in the kitchen, and plenty of clean towels really set this property apart from the rest.
My favorite part of this place is how well ventilated it is, we were there during some very warm days, but even on these days the breeze through the house (on the bottom level even) was comfortable. I appreciate that this house is both close to some really nice local beaches, as well as far enough away from the chaos of Honolulu.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone coming to the island who wants to be near the Polynesian Culture Center, BYU Hawaii, or just away from the hubbub of Honolulu."

Wow! Make the North Shore in this house your destination!
"What a great house! What a great location! It more than deserves the five star ratings it receives from travelers. The house is roomy, welcoming and well equipped, all which makes it feel just like home right away. The wonderful lanai faces the beach and ocean and offers you your choice of sun or shade, to relax and watch the waves or the whales breaching on the horizon or the surfers do their magic. It is very quiet yet very close to lots to do. The house has a very high walk-ability rating - the beach is literally at your doorstep for a swim in sandy bottomed water or a quiet walk, turtles were on the beach a few minutes away as is the park and marina. In a few more minutes you are in Haliewa - a delightful town with lots of shops, restaurants, food trucks galore and local attractions like the weekend church market, chicken BBQ and of course shave ice. Activities too - you can easily walk to rent snorkel equipment (to the left across the small bridge as you reach Haliewa) or kayaks or paddle boards at very moderate rates. Even better, people trying kayaks or paddle boards can try it all on a very calm canal right by the rental shops (turtles abound in the water!). In the car you are less than 20 minutes from famous surfing beaches - Sunset and the Banzai Pipeline - or the Dole Plantation - and not 30 minutes to Turtle Bay for snorkeling even in the surfing season. If you are keen to see Pearl Harbor (which is an amazing and meaningful experience) it is about 40 minutes by car and then just a bit further to Honolulu. The "North Shore" is somewhere to visit and stay, not just spend a day. We were there two weeks and will stay longer next time. This house is the perfect place to stay!"

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We had the best vacation (all 23) my husband and I planned this vacation to include our 4 children, their spouses, 13 grandchildren (ages 8-18) The houses were just perfectly located. We were able to visit the places on our list without much driving. The highlight of the whole week was snorkeling with the turtles right out in front of the houses. If we win a million we will definitely be back!!!!"

"Judy and mark were so hospitable and easy going, made you feel really at home and comfortable.
They were very knowledgeable about the local seen and gave some really good recommendations for food and exploring, we have been to the North Shore several times and were able to try some new things, I really like that. The apartment was cozy with all you need for a beach vacation, you could cook many meals which I did, I appreciated the full size refrigerator. There is no air but plenty of fans and we slept well at night. Would stay again."
