Met our needs

  • 4 of 5

Such great owners, always in contact with you! Only had 4 nights to explore Oahu for our very first visit to the island so this location was just what we needed! A great place to come back to at the end of the day!

You get what you pay for...

  • 2 of 5

The room is about 10x12 with a small bathroom (shower) and tiny kitchen alcove. When the sofa bed is pulled out, there is hardly room to walk around. That sofa bed....I don't think I've ever slept on a thinner mattress. You will feel every spring and metal bar on this one. Close to the beach yes, but there are better beaches a few minutes drive away. The near by beach was nice for early morning coffee and an evening beer though. Internet was almost non-existent, and my phone service (AT&T) wavered between one bar and No Service (they explain this in the welcome manual, after you've already arrived), so if you are the type of person that wants to check reviews or plan the next day's activities from your place, you'll want to make sure to get all that done away from this rental.

I've stayed on the north shore several times, and this was the first time I've been disappointed with a budget rental. Next time, I'll spend a few more dollars for a real bed and a couple extra square feet to put my bag.

More pokey than we expected

  • 3 of 5

The unit was clean but it was MUCH smaller than we had expected.

It may have been the way I interpreted the description, but I was not prepared to be sleeping on a thin mattress on a pull out sofa bed every night. I think a good pillow can rescue any bad mattress... but the pillows weren't any better.

If you're after somewhere cheap, right next to the beach where creature comforts come second to location, then this may be perfect for you.

But for my husband and I, who are from Australia and were having our delayed honeymoon, it wasn't what we'd hoped.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

Perfect place 2 minutes walk to the beach. Nice room, bathroom & kitchenette for the two of us. We enjoyed our stay but will suggest to the owners to upgrade the mattress. For not too much money you can get a nice and comfortable one that will help with better times of relaxation & nights of rest.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The area is great and Geri and Ke'alii are wonderful, helpful hosts. We would for sure come back to their property. Make sure you snorkel at the beach! :)
