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.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

The house is lovely and the location is perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay; the house is beautiful inside and out. It was also well stocked with bathroom essentials including blow dryers, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and plenty of towels. We cooked breakfast and dinner there every day which was very nice since the kitchen had everything we could need for food preparation and cooking. Zen Villa even comes equipped with snorkel and beach gear for guests to borrow. We would definitely stay there again!

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

The Zen Villa was a great fit for our family. Tucked away behind the busy commercial road through Haleiwa, opening the garden gate is like entering a different world. The garden is magical, and our kids loved discovering geckos, lizzards, giant snails and slugs, bananas, limes, tropical flowers, interesting birds and a neighborhood cat. Less exciting were the roosters in a neighbors yard crowing from 3:00 am onward but we were so tired from our adventures that they didn’t disturb us too much. The house has a lot of charm and the beds were very comfortable. It was a great home base to explore all around the North Shore. We like to rent houses so we can cook and eat at home, so having a well-appointed kitchen is important to me. My only complaints are with the lack of some basic kitchen equipment like a cutting board, and a lack of sufficient plates and cutlery. Six place settings are barely enough for one meal with five people. On the whole, we loved our stay at Zen Villa and would recommend it highly!

Our party of 2 couples spent 9 days here during the Pipeline surf competition. Loved the location with easy walking to shops and restaurants in town. Short drive to the beaches. It was perfect for relaxing and very comfortable. We had a wonderful time.

Secluded Villa but close to all amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 days in the north shore at this villa. There were 6 adults and was very comfortable. Each couple had their own bathroom which made it very nice. The Villa was close to restaurants, grocery store, drug store, and tourist stores. We were within walking distance of the marina with a beach but also easy travel distance to some extraordinary beautiful beaches with surfers. The villa was comfortable and had all we required. We had just come from a cruise on the other islands so having our own villa was great. We all enjoyed our stay and would recommend staying here to anyone looking to stay in the north shore. The drive from Honolulu to north shore is very easy and not far. We had a fantastic time at the villa. Highly recommend.

Aloha Grace
