About the property

Studio, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Centrally located on Oahu's famous North Shore. This private one acre parcel with ocean and mountain views is located just steps from world class snorkeling, scuba diving, and surfing. The property is located across the street from Pupukea Marine Reserve (an under water state park) and Shark's Cove tidal pond area (excellent world class snorkeling and scuba diving).

Tucked behind Foodland, a full service grocery, deli, bakery, with daily sushi chef service along with attached Expresso "Coffee Bean & Tea. Sharks Cove tidal pond area is across the street; this entire area from Waimea Bay including Shark's Cove is an under water state park (Pupukea Marine Reserve). A 5-6 minute walk take you to the first set of steps down onto Waimea Bay Beach Park at Waimea Bay. On the mountain side of Waimea Bay you have a world class botanical garden and cultural site "Waimea Falls Park". Three Tables Beach is a mere 2 minute walk and is one of the safest sandy beaches on the North Shore also an excellent snorkeling spot. This property's central North Shore location is a definite plus for exploring all the North Shore has to offer in either direction. Beach bikes are provided with the studio rental and are a great way to explore the North shore at a more leisurely pace. The bikes are especially fun exploring the 5 mile bike path which runs North along our world famous beaches--Bonzai Pipeline, Sunset Beach, Rocky Point, and many others. Boogie boards are also included with the unit as are beach chairs, umbrella and plenty of beach towels.

The studio is located on the first floor of a large residence, it is totally self contained and unconnected from the rest of the residence. There is plenty of privacy, peace and quiet (the surf can be heard especially at night). The patio area outside the studio is walled off, covered, with a cedar bench, bistro table with two chairs and three beach bicycles kept in good repair . There is a Weber gas grill plus a small charcoal Weber available for beach grilling. The 700 sq. itself is fully insulated, spacious and airy with two 54 inch ceiling fans and 3 large windows. The studio flooring is 18" x 18" Travertine tile with 4" travertine baseboards throughout. Solid tropical hardwood doors and trim, custom stone vanity and kitchen counter-top. The shower is very large and is done in porcelain tile. The studio is private, comfortable, cool, quiet with a well equipped kitchen.

World class golf courses, spa, and horseback riding etc. are available 7 miles from property at Turtle Bay Hilton Resort.

Optimum North Shore Rental

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed six nights at this great place, so perfectly located on the mid-North Coast. Being tucked away just behind the Foodland store is a remarkably positive benefit with excellent food vans also within easy walking distance. The property is immaculately clean, very comfortable and cleverly designed. The bathroom is a treat and overall the place is well equipped with a good tv and reliable and consistent wifi. The bikes were well maintained and were fun to ride along the bike path in both directions. The easy walks to Shark Cove and other beaches make this an ideal location for a relaxed holiday in a pretty chilled out environment. Lynette is a generous and unobtrusive host. We can highly recommend this property as a totally opposite but wonderfully complementary experience to the Waikiki vacation style.

Wonderful stay - again!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time - again. We spent our honeymoon at Lynette's in 2015. The place is clean, organized and close to everything. We love the North Shore and snorkeling in the tidal pool. This time we got to meet David and we got to know our hosts better! Lovely people. We almost stole the little cat to take home. Definitely recommended!

Home away from home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great hosts who could not help enough in making us happy. Very well appointed and tastefully decorated studio apartment with all the comforts of home! Stone benches and flooring and all quality fittings and furniture. The sweetest dog and cat to welcome us home every time we came in - what a plus! Extras like cling wrap, sauces etc as well as great appliances all laid on. Laundry for our clothes but linen taken care of by the owners. Bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards all there waiting. Food trucks, Foodland supermarket, Waimea bay, Shark's Cove and Pipeline on your doorstep. Fantastic - thanks Lynnette and David! We hope to be back one day.

Lynettes place was awesome. Everything we expected and more.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Lynettes place was everything we wanted. We were close to the bike trails and as she supplied bikes we took full advantage of the bike path along the ocean. The bed was super comfy. Lynette was so nice. She made sure we had everything we needed. Beach chairs, beach towels, cooler, umbrellas, and laundry facilities. This place was home. I highly recommend this place to anyone planning on staying on the north shore of Oahu.
