About Craig Knohl

I am a retired school teacher at a local Middle and High school on the North Shore of Oahu. I have been a resident of Hawaii since 1978. I have spent all my time living on the Island of Oahu. I am an avid runner and ocean minded athlete. I do provide ocean equipment for use.

Craig Knohl purchased this Condo in 2002

Why Craig Knohl chose Haleiwa

What makes this Condo unique

The running trails and ocean environment that makes up my lively hood in regard to recreation.

                                                                  My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Haleiwa. The condo overlooked the ocean with an amazing view. The beach in front of the condo is beautiful and was swimmable every day while others on the north shore were not. As a long time resident in the area, Craig was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The travel books in the condo were a plus. The grounds were well maintained and it was quiet in the building. The unit had everything needed and the bed was comfortable!

                                                                  Excellent accommodation, perfect location, great quaint town

                                                                  StaceyAuckland, New Zealand

                                                                  We knew nothing of Haleiwa before arriving but are so thankful that Craigs accommodation was available. The apartment is perfect. Located right on the beach, great sized bedroom, lounge and deck (lanai) beautiful views. Everything you'd need is provided to make your stay comfortable. Craigslist was excellent with communication before during and after. We were swimming from morning to night and with turtles on several occasions. We even saw a pod of dolphins. Haleiwa was our favourite town out of all the ones on the north shore. Quaint with lots of food places. Other beaches are a short drive up the coast as well as a waterfall swim.

                                                                  Highly recommended this accommodation.

                                                                  Great trip!

                                                                  michael w.

                                                                  Overall our trip back to the Oahu was great! The condo was clean and in great shape and just enough room for our family of 5! This would've been a 5 star but we could only locate 4 towels in the unit, but we made due!

                                                                  Definitely will stay again and will recommend this place to all friends and family!

                                                                  Owner's Response:


                                                                  I really appreciate your review pertaining to my oceanfront condo in Haleiwa.

                                                                  I truly apologize If their wasn't ample supplies such as towels and linens.

                                                                  I always want to leave a clean and comfortable accommodation with all that my guests might need.

                                                                  This particular time I was out of town and some miscommunication with my cleaner on my guests being a family of 5.

                                                                  Mahalo--Craig Knohl --manager

                                                                  Wonderful Condo,Great Views and Location :-)

                                                                  Tricia G.

                                                                  Spent a great week here in Craig’s condo. It is very comfortable, nicely decorated and clean. Has everything you need.

                                                                  Perfect place to relax. No need to eat meals, have drinks or coffee indoors since the lanai has awesome views, and comfortable seating.

                                                                  The bedroom is off to the back, but with the condo situated as a corner unit on the third floor allows for wonderful trade wind breezes through the floor to ceiling windows. Also there is an air conditioner in the bedroom which is so appreciated when it gets hot.

                                                                  Perfect place for swimming right in front. Craig supplies many extras, beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie board, and toys for the kids.

                                                                  kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals,however most of our cooking was on the grill outside.

                                                                  Barbeque area is next to the sand, wonderful for sunset views while you are in the ocean with a bevvie before you grill your food.

                                                                  Craig is very responsive and a gracious host. We will certainly be back, hopefully for an even longer time.

                                                                  A++++, 11/10, Would Stay Again! :-)

                                                                  Josh P.

                                                                  Craig's place is as good as you'll find on the north shore. This was my second trip to Haleiwa Surf (first time staying here) and I'm already booked to return in a few weeks. The condo is perfectly situated on the 3rd floor on the end of the building so you have a perfect view and no chance of noise above you. It takes about 20 seconds to get down the stairs, across the beach, and into the ocean. The condo itself is clean, nicely decorated and appointed, and exactly what I was looking for on the north shore.

                                                                  Craig was a tremendous host. He checked with me leading up to my visit, had the condo ready for my early arrival, checked with me via email and in-person during my stay, and was always just a call or email away. We had a small problem with the door lock and it was fixed within 30 minutes. Just unbelievable service all around. The air conditioner in the bedroom made the evenings very comfortable.

                                                                  Oceanfront in paradise!

                                                                  Dennis D.La Mesa, Ca

                                                                  This was our third visit to the Haleiwa Surf Condos, and the first time we stayed in Craig's abode, which, of the three, was our favorite: fantastic location, steps from the sand, in a corner condo. Craig was the perfect host, from welcoming us with treats to supplying a coffee grinder at my request. The condo had been immaculately cleaned prior to our arrival and contained everything needed for our vacation, from boogie boards to a fully furnished kitchen. I utilized the outdoor BBQ at the community gathering place on the beach several times, and the town of Haleiwa is just a short walk away. In addition to being on the beach at Haleiwa (where we did get to seal a monk seal sleeping), this north shore location makes for brief commutes to some of the most famous and wondrous beaches on the planet. Our two-week vacation literally flew by!
