About Veronica Leicht

I am a very active person who loves to work with people. I am from South America came to Hawaii to live with my family in 1996 . I graduated from BYU in the winter 2008 as a Art Major. I have a Art studio on the The Zen Space where I also have the Zen Villa. My Art studio is in a slow process since I am giving priority to work with the Zen Vila where I enjoy so much decorate the houses, gardening outside the Villa, and make my guests very happy with their stay on The Zen Villa. Everybody fall in love with the place and they love the convenience of walk to the Supermarket,dining, and shopping at the local stores. The Zen Villa is truly a wonderful place! Once you in the property you have peace,space and style. I am always thinking on ways to make it better, to looks beautiful,it is truly my favorite piece of art! Come and enjoy this fun and peaceful Zen Villa and Space. Mahalo and Aloha!!! I love being in Hawaii!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Veronica,

Thank you so much for providing wonderful accommodations for our visit last week. It is a fantastic house and we really enjoyed it. We cooked most nights and were happy to have such a well equipped kitchen. Overall the experience was wonderful — thank you for being so easy to deal with. We will certainly recommend you to anyone we know who goes to Oahu!

Enjoy your private, relaxing, tropical, Hawaiian escape!!!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Mar 17, 2016

It was simply Amazing! We spent 7 nights here and we wished we could have stayed longer. The beautiful Zen Villa is a gem nestled behind shops and restaurants in the quaint laid back country town of Haleiwa on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. It provides a private relaxing escape from all the fun you will have on Oahu. When you first step onto the grounds of the Villa, you will be greeted by a beautiful tropical garden surrounding the main home. Exploring the property, you will find a banana tree, a lime tree, numerous tropical plants, and water fountains. The charming villa was everything we could have hoped for and more. It has modern upgrades throughout, and was spotless and well kept. Even though there are multiple restaurants and eateries nearby, we enjoyed cooking in the well appointed kitchen and eating on the outdoor deck. With 3 teenagers, we really appreciated the 3 bathrooms, all of which had walk in showers. And speaking of teenagers, the free Wifi was a must. There are multiple French doors that let the cool trade winds blow in from the ocean. The villa is just minutes from some of the most iconic beaches in the world on the north shore of Oahu. My kids made extensive use of the boogie boards and snorkeling gear. My wife appreciated the provided beach towels and beach chairs. The Villa is within walking distance of everything we needed to stock up on for our stay. The VRBO bear highly recommends this property for a relaxing private gateway in paradise.

Great 6 Night Stay in Unit B - 3 Bedroom

  • 5 of 5

Great location in Haleiwa Town. Walk to restaurants and shops just a few blocks away. Clean, safe and with great amenities. Zen Villa is as advertised. Only problem is that the local roosters cocka-cocka-doo at 5am each morning - LOL

Tranquil hideaway right off the main drag

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 staying for spring break - myself, my grade 10 daughter and her 3 friends! All of us thought the cottage was nicely appointed and well maintained with many nice design choices for the decor. The location could not have been more ideal for our group's needs - steps to good restaurants, shopping, activity/excursion kiosks and even beaches. The girls enjoyed being able to walk places independently and safely - even for sunset watching - when they needed a break from MOM! I loved my quiet early morning coffee and book reading ritual as the sun began to shine through my back bedroom french doors - a great start to every day. We would definitely return!

An 'above and beyond' added bonus was the wonderful caretaker who, after I was called back home two days early to rush to my dying mother's side and having to leave the 4 girls on their own (eek!), stopped by daily with offers of help, groceries or lifts to the farther away beaches - SO kind!

I will look forward to another opportunity to stay in the Zen cottage :-)

Great place to stay in North Shore

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Veronica's place. It was very comfortable and big enough for all of us. We had breakfast at the outdoor deck every day, surrounded by lot of fruit trees and lush greenery. This place is at walkable distance to grocery stores and lot of little shops. Only problem we had was finding the place as we got there at night, we couldn't see any house numbers or the house. House was tucked behind the the shops. It would have been nice if the directions informed of us or gave us a reffernce point like it is just next door to the grocery store behind the shops, We enjoyed meeting Veronica's son, very nice young man, took off a papaya off the tree for us, fruit was to die for.

There were couple of things we missed, cutting board and a toaster. Over all it was a wonderful vacation and we loved the house. We plan on staying there again.

Hawaii vacation

  • 4 of 5

Very relaxing, clean, charming, good location. Our only suggestions would be:

Better directions for locating this unit, binder in the unit explaining details of the unit such as light switches, parking, garbage, etc. Larger mirrors in 2 of the 3 bathrooms, shelving or dressers in bedrooms and bathrooms. Overall, great place to stay! We would recommend this unit to anyone.
