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!

Reviews

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.

Excellent! 4.7/5 -

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

Absolutely charming in heart of town

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed for a week and absolutely loved the Green House. We loved that it was tucked away and peaceful yet at the end of the driveway was a bustling town. Groceries and restaurants were short walking distances. We looked up the location on Google maps prior to arrival so we found the place with no problems. The house alarm gave us extra piece of mind while we went about town. The place itself was well stocked with everything that we needed - Plenty of towels and stocked kitchen. Beds were comfortable; the a/c and fans helped a lot. The beach supplies were helpful also. It was such a comfortable, fun stay that we hated to leave. We hope to be back someday!

Great rental, convenient, clean and renovated. Great amenities, everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We visited from Melbourne, Australia.

We loved this house, was a change to stay in the town. The town is gorgeous. It's next door almost to the supermarket and tucked away behind so no noise issues at all.

We couldn't work out a few things around the house initially and there was someone to help us straight away which was fantastic. My mum was sick and our host helped us find a local doctor.

We stayed with our 3 young children and my parents and it worked really well. Enough space. The kitchen was really good, bathrooms very nice and modern.

Beach chairs and boogie boards for the kids were utilised, very nice beach towels as well.

Thanks for the stay!

Not impressive area. Full of Mosquitoes in the house.

  • 1 of 5

We are two families and 6 of us. It took us a while to find the house. Not an impressive area. We have checked in the house and stayed there for about one and half hour. All of us was attacked by the mosquitoes and had move to the hotel.

If you are looking for a nice place to stay for your vacation. I would not recommend this house.

Owner's Response: The North Shore is the country side of Oahu.If you like big cities like Honolulu and prefer a touristic hotel area the North Shore is not for you. This guest didn't take the instructions with directions and access codes to the house and called me lost.I gave her all the information and I was on the phone until she open the door to the house. After 5 minutes I got a text asking for recommendations to a UPSCALE BUFFET RESTAURANT IN TOWN IN A HOTEL BY THE BEACH. So I gave her the recommendation and after a little she called me asking how to turn the alarm on and look the house. I was in the phone with her and when she locked the house.She said " I am leaving this house" it was in a rude tone. I was surprised! She said there was mosquitos in the house. It was 3:00 in the afternoon. She treat me to write a bad review if I didn't return the money.I told her the refund policy. After 20 minutes I was there to check the house with my son and could not feel or see one mosquito!Hawaii is sub-tropical place that it can have mosquitos mostly at the end of the day,but very little especially in the hot summer days like this one was.Yes I could not feel any mosquito. I am from North of Brasil where it has a lot of moquettes and I know when a place is really full of mosquitos. I've never had anyone complaning about this before and it was the only excuse to leave the house,besides the title already says it all. " Not an impressive area" Please make sure you prefer a big hotel in Waikiki instead of the North Shore with many beautiful beaches to surf,snorkel,mountains to hike, lost of Nature to see,and feel the country side. It is quite different than a big city with lost of tourist, buildings,resorts,hotels,business,traffic,and all the city business!

Tucked away in the middle of historic north shore, you can walk to all the local shops, shrimp trucks, and shaved ice. The house waa renovated and very comfortable.

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
