Overview

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. ft.studio 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.

PERFECT Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5

After spending a week in Waikiki for work, desperate to get away from the crowds, my fiance and I booked five nights at Lynette's studio. This was our first time using HomeAway/VRBO and it was the most wonderful experience! Lynette is such a kind and helpful hostess! She was respectful of our privacy yet always available to answer any questions regarding the rental and had some great suggestions for local adventure spots. We rented a car to drive up to the North Shore, but hardly used it once we were there. The studio is perfectly located! You can't beat being walking distance to Foodland, food trucks, Shark's Cove, Three Tables beach (my favorite), and Waimea Valley. The large studio itself was well-stocked with just about anything you might need (extra towels, TP, bar soap, hair dryer, books about Oahu, wifi), not to mention all the extra goodies (bikes, beach umbrellas, chairs, water shoes, etc.) Lynette really has thought of everything! Our time here was so relaxing and truly memorable - we actually got engaged at Three Tables during our stay :) Needless to say, I'd go back in a heartbeat and recommend to any and all. Thanks again!

LOVED IT AND CANT WAIT TO GO BACK

  • 5 of 5

Lynette is so sweet and accommodating. Her place is really nice and clean. stocked with everything you will need. location is fantastic. From umbrellas by the door, locked key holders, bikes, boogie boards, plenty of bath and beach towels, hair dryer etc she has thought of everything. Lynette has lived in Hawaii a long time and has a lot of knowledge about Oahu. She was a great resource and it was a pleasure getting to know her. My cousin and I had a blast here. thanks so much! Ill be back!
